Deputy governor Charlie Bean said for the first time over the weekend this could include putting “direct constraints” on individuals’ access to credit at the top of the cycle to preserve the health of banks.The BoE could cap mortgage loan-to-value ratios and demand deposits of up to 25 per cent, Bean said in a speech to American financiers. The limits would be designed to prevent a repeat of the credit crisis, which saw some borrowers granted as much as 125 per cent of their property’s value, leaving them stuck in negative equity when prices tanked.Bean said: “There is the option of introducing direct constraints on the terms or availability of credit… The best approach seems likely to involve a portfolio of instruments.”British Bankers’ Association chief executive Angela Knight welcomed Bean’s suggestions. “What needs to take place now is a proper discussion explaining why at certain times individuals will be restricted in how much they can borrow. The reason these things needs to be discussed is they impact society – rather than just banks – and society needs to understand.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. After a sizeable surge since Halloween, the FTSE 100 index is taking a breather. As I write, the index is down roughly 125 points (1.9%) from Monday’s mid-afternoon peak of 6,455. Nevertheless, the Footsie has gained almost 745 points (13.3%) since October, making this a positive month for UK shareholders. On the other side of the Atlantic, news of a highly effective Covid-19 vaccine from US biotech Moderna lifted stock prices again. Yesterday, the S&P 500 index closed at a record closing high of 3,627 points, up 11.2% in 2020. Despite these recent rises, I still see hidden value in quality FTSE 100 companies selling cheaply today. For example, I’d buy these cheap shares right now.GSK is one of my favourite FTSE 100 stocksHabitual Fool readers will know that I write about GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) more often than almost any other FTSE 100 firm. That’s because I regard its cheap shares of one of the biggest low-risk bargains in the entire Footsie. Having been a GSK shareholder for most of the past 30 years, I’ve followed its fortunes over the decades. Also, I’ve had a couple of close relatives work in leading scientific roles at GSK, so I’ve seen the company from the inside.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Under new CEO (and recent Dame) Emma Walmsley, GSK has been undergoing enforced evolution. It is now focused on being a world leader in immunology, oncology (cancer), HIV/AIDS, respiratory treatments, and vaccines. And, being the UK’s second-largest pharmaceutical company, you’d expect the Covid-19 pandemic to boost GSK’s share price, right? Wrong, because these cheap shares just keep getting cheaper.Cheap shares: GSK is down 25% in 10 monthsAs I write, the GSK share price is 1,395p, having falling back 47p (3.3%) overnight. Although this is 111p (8.6%) above the stock’s 52-week closing low of 1,284p on 30 October, I believe GSK’s cheap shares have far further to rise. After all, at their 2020 high on 24 January, they closed at 1,857p, which is 1.33 times the current price. In other words, GSK shares have fallen almost exactly a quarter (24.9%) in 10 months, which puts them in crash territory.In my view, GSK’s cheap shares should appeal to a wide range of conservative investors, such as value seekers and income investors. GSK is what I call an ‘SLR share’, in that it offers Safety, Liquidity, and Returns, as follows:Safety: GSK is a FTSE 100 heavyweight with a market value of £73.4bn, so you know it’s not going to go away any time soon.Liquidity: GSK shares are among the most liquid, being easy to buy and sell in very large quantities.Returns: For the past five years, GSK shares have paid a yearly dividend of 80p.Today, GSK’s cheap shares offer a chunky dividend yield of 5.73%. This is about 1.8 times the FTSE 100’s dividend yield of roughly 3.2%. In fact, at £4bn a year, GSK’s yearly cash payout is the fifth-largest by size in the entire UK stock market. Also, GSK’s stock is cheap in historical valuation terms. It trades on a price-to-earnings ratio of around 10.8 and an earnings yield of 9.3%.For me and other GSK shareholders, 2020 hasn’t been a great year. But I think 2021 will see GSK producing much higher returns, especially for investors buying in at these depressed prices. That’s why I’d buy these cheap shares today, ideally inside an ISA, to pocket decades of tax-free cash dividends and future capital gains! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img Cliffdarcy owns shares of GlaxoSmithKline.

It was a very conservative congregation in those days, in a very conservative city. I was the “young Turk” brought on staff, I suppose, to help give the younger and more liberal members a clerical voice. In retrospect, then Rector C. Brinkley Morton (later Bishop of San Diego) showed both wisdom and courage in allowing me both to preach and to lead our young adults in interracial dialogues and work projects in the Hyde Park/North Hollywood area of East Memphis. Goodness, that former Mississippi state legislator had been brave enough just to hire a young assistant who had marched with Dr. King in Selma. I will always be grateful to him and proud of all that Happy has accomplished over the years in the service to God and humanity.

It was like my birthday present to myself.”She joined the Republican Party.“That was when it was the party of Lincoln, my dear, and it was mostly made up in the South of black folks,” she said. “The deal was that blacks and whites would vote for Republican national candidates, but blacks locally had to vote for the Democratic local people.”Under the Memphis political machine of Edward Hull “Boss” Crump, she said, “they used to take prisoners, put them on a bus and take them around to the polls and vote all the dead people. This basically only happened in black precincts. They would vote for who they were told to vote for.”“There was a group of white Republicans who wanted to break that machine up,” said Jones. “Basically, we established a two-party system.”Her involvement in the civil rights movement began after the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was shot at the Lorraine Motel in 1968 while visiting Memphis to support striking African-American sanitation workers there.“Right after Dr. King was assassinated, we were all pretty shook up down here,” she recalled. One day, she invited herself to lunch with someone from Republican headquarters who was meeting Jocelyn Wurzburg, a Jewish woman trying to establish a local chapter of the Panel of American Women, which raised awareness of prejudice, racism and discrimination.Jones joined the effort. Integrated panels of women – Jewish, Catholic, African-American and white Protestant – spoke at PTAs, churches and civic groups “all over town.”“The deal was to speak about prejudice and how harmful it was,” she explained. “We were very well-received in most places.”The Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated in 1968, is now part of the National Civil Rights Museum.Of course, there was the time she was sitting beside a man on an Atlanta-bound airplane. Asked what she did, Jones told him she made speeches about “what a great country this is and what a wonderful thing democracy is.”The man was chair of the Bluff City Council of Civic Clubs. He thought the Panel of American Women sounded patriotic and invited them to speak.The council, Jones said, “was the closest thing to the White Citizen’ Council that you’ve got in Memphis. I knew that.”“We were not well-received, but it was fun. The worst thing was the sheriff’s deputies sitting in the back making nasty remarks. They were not polite, especially when they saw the African-American woman come in with us.”Very often when members of the panel spoke, she said, “people in the audience had never seen a black and a white woman engaging with each other as equals and being more or less middle class and articulate and the whole schmear.” While they might not have influenced the Bluff City council, she said, “I think it made a difference in other organizations.”Meanwhile, Memphis’ sanitation workers were preparing to strike again because the city would not recognize the union. Jones and Wurzburg organized a bus ride so people could see how the workers lived. So many people showed up, they had to order a second bus.Most of the riders were “white, Republican and concerned” women, Jones said. “They didn’t want to see the city get into the mess that it had been the year before” when King was killed.The day after the tour, the women visited city hall to see the mayor and council. “I kind of ended up as the spokesperson for it,” Jones said. “What we did was redefine the issue. We said: This is not just a union-management issue. This is an issue about hunger and poverty and racism.”“You know what? They listened. They listened real hard. The union got recognized almost immediately, and we didn’t have another strike.”But not everyone was pleased. Their telephones “rang off the hook with nasty phone calls,” Jones said. “I couldn’t let my children answer the phone, it was that bad. … It was right after that the Republican Party kicked my butt out, at least as an officer.” (She’s now a Democrat.)Next, they tackled the Memphis school board’s policy of not applying for federal funding for free lunches for needy school children. “They didn’t want the federal government messing in their business. That was their reasoning,” she said.Before the next school board vote, she visited all the local black schools, located “in pretty lousy neighborhoods,” and recorded who could and could not afford to eat lunch. “The rule was, if you couldn’t eat, you still had to go sit in the cafeteria. Now, could you believe that?”She gathered a group of women to accompany her to the next board meeting, where she presented her findings. “I just told them it was cruel what they were doing, and there was no reason on earth not to have free lunches in these schools. They voted right then, and that day they got free lunches.”That prompted another phone call when she arrived home, this time from her ultraconservative father. “He had not liked what I had been doing over the past year, to say the least,” she said. “I’d been all over the 5 o’clock news. He said, ‘You know, I’ll never understand what you’re doing or why you’re doing it, but you’re certainly doing it well.’ That was quite a compliment from him.”Reflecting on these successes, she said, “We had some power. In 1968, I had been named by the local newspaper, The Commercial Appeal, as one of the 20 most-influential political figures in the county. That gives you a little power.”When confronted by a group of white, Republican women, local politicians “just couldn’t ignore that,” she said. “Hell, these were the people that put them in office. … Plus it was shocking. Women in my class were not supposed to be doing that. We were supposed to be going to junior league meetings. That’s about it.”It would have been different had they been black or lower-class whites, she said.Over the years, Jones’ activism continued on various policy issues, including domestic violence, and she worked as a certified marriage and family therapist and social worker. At her Memphis Episcopal church, Grace-St. Luke’s, she works at the food bank. In 2009, she was among six women to receive the Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis Legends Award for her community activism.Reflecting on race relations in Memphis, she sees progress and cause for concern. The mostly black city’s schools are being consolidated with the county’s mostly white school system, and “the county people are not liking this at all,” she said. “Tensions are fairly high right now.”“We’ve still got the racial divide,” she said. “But … we’ve got a pretty established black middle class, and most neighborhoods that were formerly all white are integrated, to some degree. I live in probably the best neighborhood in the city, I think, and it’s integrated now. It’s not 50 percent or anything. Maybe 25 percent. That’s a big step.”—Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.En español: TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab April 14, 2012 at 8:34 pm Congratulations to Happy and her congregation for years of advocacy and showing up to do the right thing.

Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Washington, D.C.] “O aprendemos a vivir juntos… o pereceremos juntos como tontos”, así comenzó diciendo el obispo primado Michael Curry al dirigirse a los miembros e invitados del Club Nacional de la Prensa  [National Press Club] el 8 de febrero.Las palabras, dichas por el Rdo. Martin Luther King Jr. durante un discurso pronunciado en  San Luis, Misurí, en 1964, sirven como cita definitoria para el siglo XXI, dijo Curry.“La opción es nuestra: ‘caos o comunidad’”, dijo Curry, haciéndose eco del título del cuarto y último libro de King: Adónde vamos: caos o comunidad  [Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community] publicado en 1967. En el libro, dijo Curry, era obvio que King luchaba por el futuro del movimiento de los derechos civiles y por la manera de conducir una nación —que potencialmente se desmembraba— durante un tiempo de conflicto racial —y de clase— y de la guerra de Vietnam.Partiendo del tema “el papel de la Iglesia en la creación de una sociedad más inclusiva”, Curry compartió sus comentarios con más de 30 personas reunidas en el salón Edward R. Murrow de la sede del club: una organización profesional de periodistas y profesionales de la comunicación con más de 3.500 miembros.Curry habló como parte de la serie regular del club Newsmaker, conferencias de prensa de una hora de duración, en las cuales congresistas, funcionarios del gobierno, politólogos e influyentes líderes de organizaciones se dirigen a los miembros del club y responden a preguntas de los medios de prensa. Katharine Jefferts Schori, la anterior Obispa Primada, habló ante el Club de la Prensa en 2008.La invitación a hablar de Curry se produjo por recomendación de Susan Hahn, miembro del Club de la Prensa y de la iglesia episcopal de Cristo [Christ Church] de las inmediaciones de Alexandria, Virginia. Hahn asistió al evento junto con otros episcopales, entre ellos  la Rvdma. Mariann Edgar Budde, obispa de la Diócesis de Washington, y el Rvdmo. Gene Robinson, obispo jubilado de la Diócesis de Nuevo Hampshire.El 7 de febrero, Curry predicó en la Catedral Nacional de Washington durante una eucaristía vespertina en conmemoración de Absalom Jones, el primer afroamericano en ser ordenado sacerdote episcopal.Curry le expresó a los reunidos en el Club de la Prensa que estaba sorprendido por su elección como el primer Obispo Presidente y Primado afroamericano de la Iglesia Episcopal durante la Convención General de junio pasado.Dijo que su elección, sin embargo, no era la única sorpresa, y citó las dos prioridades de la misión de la Iglesia Episcopal, evangelización y reconciliación racial, adoptadas por esa misma Convención.“Evangelización y episcopal” son dos palabras que rara vez se oyen juntas, afirmó Curry, añadiendo que “por primera vez se  situó la evangelización al frente y al centro de la Iglesia Episcopal” que ha contraído un serio compromiso de volver a la labor de reconciliación racial desde fines de los años sesenta cuando John E. Hines era el obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal.“Estos fueron dos decisiones valientes, y no creo que ninguno de nosotros realmente las vimos venir”, afirmó. “Sospecho que cuando uno no ve venir algo como eso bien puede ser una señal de que alguna otra variable participa de la ecuación, lo cual significa que el Espíritu Santo ha estado experimentando con nosotros…“Salimos de esa convención con el compromiso de la Iglesia Episcopal con lo que yo llamo el Movimiento de Jesús y con un compromiso a seguir en el camino de Jesús de Nazaret, sin saber exactamente cómo todo esto va a funcionar, pero siguiendo el camino de Jesús de Nazaret que es el camino del amor de Dios en este mundo. Y hacer esto por medio de la evangelización y de una manera que conduzca a la reconciliación racial en nuestra sociedad y en el mundo”.Curry dijo estar convencido de que el llamado de King al siglo XXI “a aprender a vivir juntos como hermanos y hermanas,  está vinculado a la verdad de este Movimiento de Jesús y a la obra de la evangelización y la reconciliación racial”.Tal como el rabino británico Jonathan Sacks señala en su libro No en nombre de Dios [Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence], el extremismo religioso está teniendo lugar en el judaísmo, el cristianismo y el islam, y las voces más moderadas y centristas están ausentes de la conversación. Y Occidente se ha alejando en gran medida de sus anteriores valores judeocristianos, para volverse a los ídolos del interés personal: el mercado, el consumismo y el individualismo.“El becerro de oro del ego ha vuelto a ser levantado por los hijos de Israel en el desierto”, dijo Curry en apoyo de la tesis de Sacks. “Ese becerro de oro, ese ídolo del ego, puede bien ser la realidad más destructiva de la sociedad humana. egocentrismo, egoísmo, llámenlo como quieran, es francamente un cáncer que puede destruirnos a todos y, si no se controla, destruirá al planeta”.Curry dijo sentirse alentado por el papa Francisco, por su popularidad y sus acciones hacia la inclusión de todo el mundo; él está moldeando “una manera de ser que es exactamente lo contrario del egocentrismo y la autodestrucción y en eso se afirma la esperanza”.Jesús, dijo Curry, lo resumió todo, al decir claramente en Mateo 22, que la ley y los profetas dependen del amor a Dios y del amor al prójimo.“La religión tiene que ver de manera completa y total con el amor a Dios y el amor al prójimo, si no tiene que ver con el amor, no tiene que ver con Dios…”King, dijo Curry, entendió que el amor es la vía para crear una “amada comunidad”.“Si amo a Dios con todo mi corazón y con toda mi mente, no hay lugar para el egoísmo”, afirmó Curry.Por su parte, la Iglesia Episcopal al poner la evangelización y la reconciliación racial al frente y al centro busca intencionalmente la manera de llevar a cabo la tarea de amar a Dios y al prójimo tanto dentro como fuera de la Iglesia Episcopal.Curry habló de la evangelización y la reconciliación racial en el contexto del amor a Dios y del amor al prójimo como una senda para “la vida del mundo”.La evangelización no consiste en traer personas a la Iglesia Episcopal, sino en llevar a las personas a una “relación más profunda y duradera con Dios”.“La evangelización consiste en llevarnos de regreso a ese Dios y llevarnos de regreso al encuentro de unos con otros, y eso es la reconciliación, y cuando eso ocurra no permitimos que los niños se acuesten con hambre, cuando eso ocurra todos los niños tendrán la oportunidad de una educación excelente y accesible, cuando eso ocurra todo ser humano será un hijo de Dios y estará dotado por Dios de ciertos derechos inalienables a la vida, la libertad y la búsqueda de la felicidad, cuando eso ocurra depondremos nuestras espadas y nuestros escudos en la ribera y no nos prepararemos más para la guerra.“O aprendemos a vivir juntos como hermanos y hermanas… o pereceremos juntos como tontos. Pero yo no estoy en esta empresa porque crea que pereceremos. Estoy en esta empresa porque vamos a aprender a vivir juntos, y la Iglesia Episcopal va a contribuir a encabezar la marcha porque somos parte del Movimiento de Jesús”.— Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

first_imgWeighting incentive for NHS staffOn 13 Feb 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Thehigh cost of living in Edinburgh has led the local hospital trust to campaignfor a “weighting” scheme in a bid to attract staff. The proposal isincluded in a paper the Lothian University Hospitals NHS Trust has produced totackle the severe skills shortages the trust has faced in recent months.Unemployment is just above 2 per cent in Edinburgh and living costs havesoared. AlanPenman, acting director of HR with the trust, explained, “We are lookingat weighting as one of a number of potential options in helping to appoint staff.”We also feel that, while the return of the nurses’home may not be planned, there is increasing pressure to assist staff withliving accommodation in Edinburgh where housing costs have risen substantiallyin recent years.” Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. last_img read more

first_imgThe occurrence of PMSEs with time of day shows a semi-diurnal variation with minima at 8 and 20 h LT. PMSE layers observed for more than 30 min show an average rate of descent of 2 km h−1. These characteristics suggest the influence of tidal winds. When the observed steady wind and diurnal and semi-diurnal tides at EISCAT are added, the overall magnitude shows a time-variation which matches the occurrence of PMSEs, and the observed rate of descent, approximately 2 km h−1. Atmospheric gravity waves also contribute to the velocity of the neutral wind. When the wave reinforces the background wind, the PMSEs are stronger and descend more rapidly, but when the wave-related velocity opposes the background wind the PMSE is weaker and it descends more slowly.last_img read more

first_imgThe diving behaviour of Antarctic fur seal (Arctocephalus gazella) pups on Bird Island, South Georgia (54°S, 38°W), was examined during February-April 1996 using capillary-tube depth gauges (CDGs) and time-depth recorders (TDRs). CDGs were deployed on 6 female and 10 male pups aged 65-101 days. Depths measured by CDGs were within 10% of maximum depths recorded by TDRs. Maximum dive depths averaged 13.8 m and ranged from 4.2 to 28.1 m. Body length alone accounted for 66% of the total variation in maximum dive depth. TDRs were deployed on one female and two male pups aged 89-101 days. In total, 4858 dives were recorded during 173 h at sea. The average dive depth and duration was 4.2 m and 20 s, respectively. Pups made a total of 34 trips and each spent 50% of its time at sea. Not all trips included dives; however, when diving took place trips lasted, on average, 6.8 h and contained 214 dives, most of which took place during daylight. Dives were made at a frequency of 30/h and the vertical distance dived was 124 m · h-1. The number of dives, percentage of time spent submerged, percentage of time spent diving, dive frequency, and dive rate were positively correlated with trip duration. These results show that Antarctic fur seal pups develop diving skills at an early age, and by the time they are close to being weaned they have the diving ability to exploit prey similar to those taken by adults.last_img read more

first_imgAfter we broke the news last week of another impending rise in the price of flour many of you have remarked that both British and Canadian wheat harvests were very good, therefore it is hard to believe that other factors would have such an adverse effect on prices.So this week Alex Waugh, director of the National Association of British and Irish Millers, explains precisely why those other factors, ’world events’, are having such a dramatic impact (pg 18). The graphs summarise the situation and show why bread prices simply must rise as a result.There is no way plant bakers, craft bakers or biscuit-makers can swallow the price rises. That is why it is so vital to continue communicating the reasons for the rise through the national media.Every single craft customer and supermarket shopper should know why they have to pay more – again. We have seen in the past that consumers accept a repeat increase on coffee and fuel. This time it is the turn of bread.Elsewhere we report on how Britain’s three biggest high street bakery retailers are having to re-jig their offering or remodel their business plans. Why? Because high street trading conditions demand it (pgs 14, 15). Lyndale and Three Cooks have taken a hard look at their trading plans and shops, while Greggs, though still seeing improved profits, has seen margins drop. Hot summers can wreak havoc on hot takeaway but coffee shops and sandwich chains such as Amano and FooGo continue to proliferate (pgs 4,5).Pasty outlets are popping up everywhere too (pg 25). In just three years, sales of pasties, as a percentage of total pastry snacks, have risen from 21.6% to 28.1%. London, not Cornwall, is where most of the pasty outlets are based, but Proper Cornish’s account manager says optimistically: “There are still lots of places in Britain that don’t have them.”Pasties are a very traditional Cornish product and, like the Melton Mowbray pork pie, are guarding their origins carefully. Tradition with a modern twist is a great seller, just look at the design of up-to-date pasty outlets. But tradition alone is not good enough – a point firmly made by our Friday essayist this week (pg 13). Do you agree?last_img read more

first_imgThe Coronavirus Status Checker, which is the latest example of the NHS harnessing the power of technology and data to help it tackle the epidemic, is part of the NHS coronavirus service. It complements the NHS 111 online coronavirus tool launched earlier this month, which gives the public digital access to health advice, isolation notes and a daily text messaging service for those self-isolating with symptoms.The Status Checker will not identify users from the information they provide, although it will cross-reference data from other sources to ensure it avoids counting people twice.The answers given by the public will only be used by the NHS and trusted organisations working directly with the NHS in response to coronavirus. The information will not be retained any longer than is strictly necessary post COVID-19.Prof Keith Willett, Strategic Incident Director NHS England, said: Technology and data is playing a vital role in battling coronavirus and supporting our heroic NHS frontline workers to save lives, protect the vulnerable, and relive pressure on the NHS. We must learn as much as possible about this virus, and we are asking the whole nation to join this effort. If anyone has experienced symptoms of COVID-19 I would urge you to use our new status checker app to help us to collect essential information on the virus and allow us to better allocate NHS resources where they are needed most. The survey can be accessed on the NHS website at why they are staying at home to choose from a series of options to describe how they are feeling whether they have any other health problems their date of birth their postcode how many people are living in their home. A new Coronavirus Status Checker that will help the NHS coordinate its response and build up additional data on the COVID-19 outbreak has been launched today by Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock.People with potential coronavirus symptoms are now being asked to complete the status checker and answer a short series of questions which will tell the NHS about their experience.It is open to anyone in the UK to use on the NHS website and in its initial phase the NHS is particularly keen for anyone who thinks they may be displaying potential coronavirus symptoms, no matter how mild, to complete it.Status Checker users are clearly told at the beginning and the end of the survey that it is not a triage or clinical advice tool, and that they should visit 111 online for medical advice about their symptoms.The information gathered will help the NHS to plan its response to the outbreak, indicating when and where more resources like oxygen, ventilators and additional staff might be needed and will provide valuable insight into the development and progression of the virus across the country.Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock said: We know large volumes of people are visiting NHS 111 online each day, reporting potential coronavirus symptoms and being advised to self-isolate, and it will be hugely valuable for the NHS if we can learn more about these people and their experiences. By taking a few moments to answer these questions, you can play your part in helping the NHS put its resources in the right places, at the right time, to save lives. The service is hosted on the NHS website and is available to access openly, with links directly from the NHS 111 online coronavirus service and NHS coronavirus pages.The initiative is a collaboration between NHS England, NHSX, NHS Digital and Public Health England at the request of the Health and Social Care Secretary.The creators of a number of independent apps and websites which have already launched to collect similar data have agreed to work openly with the NHS and align their products and data as part of this central, national effort.Information collected by the NHS Coronavirus Status Checker will form part of a core national COVID-19 dataset held by NHS England.The tool is live now and people can complete the survey either for themselves or on behalf of someone else with their permission.It asks them: Notes to editors The Coronavirus Status Checker has initially been developed for NHS England. Data will be made available for the devolved administrations to support their response needslast_img read more

first_imgFor anyone who was hoping Simon & Garfunkel reunion, don’t hold your breath. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Paul Simon was asked about any possibility of working with Art Garfunkel in the future.Simon sternly responded, “No, out of the question… We don’t even talk.”The singer/songwriter also talks about how he plans to craft setlists for his upcoming tour, saying that fans should expect a selection of songs from Simon’s new album, Stranger to Stranger, which is due out on June 3rd. The new release sounds rather exciting, actually, as Simon explores one-of-a-kind instruments and unique tonal structures.Of course, all of the classics will also be in store. “They wanna hear ‘You Can Call Me Al,’… So I play it. It’s not like I would pick out ‘You Can Call Me Al’ and play it because I really want to, but people like it so much that I’m like, ‘Of course I’ll do it.’ I’ll play ‘Me and Julio [Down by the Schoolyard]’ too, though I actually like ‘Me and Julio.’”Simon’s tour kicks off at Jazz Fest next week, and runs until June. Tour dates can be seen here.[Via Rolling Stone]last_img read more

first_imgNext month, Rooster Conspiracy will make its San Francisco debut, with guitarist Eric Krasno, bassist Reed Mathis, keyboardist Todd Stoops and drummer Jay Lane offering up their psychedelic, improvisations. Rooster Conspiracy’s San Francisco debut is scheduled for July 26th at The Independent—the night in between Phish’s highly anticipated West Coast performances in San Francisco and Los Angeles.Rooster Conspiracy was actually born from Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann‘s good intentions and celebratory spirit during the first few days of 2017. Having just rung in the new year in a friend’s backyard in Hawaii with a band that included his Billy & the Kids bandmate Reed Mathis and Mathis’ Electric Beethoven bandmate Todd Stoops, Kreutzmann was in the mood to keep jamming. When he heard that Eric Krasno just arrived on his little island of Kauai, he invited the guitarist to join in.In the time since the project’s inception, Rooster Conspiracy has taken on a life of its own. While the Grateful Dead drummer is often unable to make performances on the mainland, Kreutzmann’s presence is still felt in the band’s song selections, which frequently use Grateful Dead songs as a jumping point for creative, exploratory jams. In Kreutzmann’s stead for the upcoming San Francisco show, the band has once again tapped Ratdog and Primus drummer Jay Lane, who has become a staple of the project, previously performing with Rooster Conspiracy at the group’s East Coast debut at Brooklyn Comes Alive in 2017 and more.Tickets for Rooster Conspiracy’s upcoming San Francisco debut at The Independent on July 26th go on sale on Thursday, June 28th, at 12 p.m. (PT) via Ticketfly.last_img read more

first_img“This is a wonderful story of collaboration and imagination,” said Harvard President Drew Faust, moments before cutting a ribbon yesterday afternoon to open the new Harvard Center for Biological Imaging (CBI).The facility, on the second floor of the BioLabs at 16 Divinity Ave., is not just another room filled with microscopes. For everything about the facility is unique, from its conception, to its open design, to the fact that its equipment will be replaced every 24 to 36 months.But what may be the most important aspect of the CBI, Faust said, is not its collection of cutting-edge scientific instruments, but rather that “it makes the instruments the instruments of collaboration, as well as the instruments of science. And that, to me, is tremendously important.” The fact that the new center is furthering interdisciplinary, collaborative science at Harvard is why Faust offered to help provide funding for it.Jeremy Bloxham, the Mallinckrodt Professor of Geophysics, professor of computational science, and dean of science in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, told those attending the ribbon cutting that “as I look back over the last five to 10 years, there’s a real change to how science is supported at Harvard. It used to be that individual investigators were supported, [and] equipment would disappear into their labs and wouldn’t be used by anybody other than the members of that particular lab group.“Now, we have a much stronger emphasis on building centers. We do that not just [because it’s] financially more effective to build centers, but because it’s scientifically more effective to build centers. … It’s having people interact with each other … having people bump into each other while using the instrumentation [helps to ensure] that new ideas emerge and people find new ways of doing things,” Bloxham said.Quoting 18th century satirist and essayist Jonathan Swift, Faust noted, “‘Vision … is the art of seeing things invisible.’ I thought of this not just because the center is dedicated to making the invisible visible,” Faust said, “but also because every step in its creation … was made possible by this ability to make the invisible possible.”The envisioning of the center began with Jeff Lichtman, a professor in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB), asking first himself, and then colleagues in his and other departments, what doesn’t work about the way most imaging is done, and what might correct that.“I’ve been a director of imaging centers for 20 years,” said Lichtman, who is now the director of the new CBI, “so I know what their strengths and weaknesses are, and there were a number of weaknesses I wanted to address. One serious problem,” he said, “is that the expense of these devices [the microscopes] is enormous — they literally cost what a house costs. And with the pace imaging technology is moving forward, within three or four years they’re out of date.“We needed an evergreen imaging facility,” Lichtman said in an interview. As an observer of the “sociology of science,” Lichtman said, “Laboratories know certain technologies, but when you have a field that’s moving forward rapidly, you can have a mismatch between the gray-head lab heads and the microscopists. The students are young and open-minded … but normally there’s no opportunity for students using one piece of equipment to have real exchange with people using others.”Lichtman, MCB assistant professor Sharad Ramanathan, and MCB chair Catherine Dulac, the Higgins Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology, proposed creating a center with a unique open architecture. Rather than have individual microscopes sequestered in closed rooms, the center’s scopes would all be at stations in an open space, with direct-down lighting, and easily moveable 5-foot-high partitions around the instruments. With that arrangement, scientists and students would all be exposed to all of the technologies being used, and the work going on, in the center. The CBI eventually will have a dozen microscopes, including several that have been placed there by individual researchers, including Dulac and Doug Melton, the chairman of the new Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology (SCRB).Additionally, they developed what Lichtman calls a unique “health club” model for the use of the center. “Normally, facilities work on an hourly rate, typically $30 to $60 per hour to use the equipment,” he explained. “That is a tremendous damper on students trying to learn to use devices; they spend 10 hours, and it’s $600. Instead, labs wanting to use the CBI will purchase annual memberships at $2,000 per year per person. That works out to about an hour-and-a-half a week at $30 an hour, and most labs use way, way more than 1.5 hours per week,” Lichtman said.Then came the question of how to ensure that the CBI is always filled with state-of-the-art equipment. Jim Sharp, president of Carl Zeiss Microimaging, came up with a unique solution to that problem: Rather than purchase microscopes, at upwards of a half-million dollars each, the CBI and Zeiss worked out a leasing arrangement that not only guarantees that the microscopes will be replaced with the latest equipment every 24 to 36 months, but also provides for a Zeiss engineer to be at the CBI full time, maintaining the delicate instruments and helping the researchers work through any problems with them. Additionally, Zeiss will ask Harvard scientists working in the CBI to evaluate Zeiss equipment still in the alpha and beta stages of development.“We would like to learn from you; we’d like to look over your shoulder so we too can improve,” Sharp said during the ribbon-cutting ceremony.Though the new imaging facility is in the BioLabs, it is open to researchers from all across the Cambridge and Longwood campuses, as well as to those with laboratories in affiliated hospitals throughout the area.One of those attending the opening was  CONTACT _Con-3C179B75AAE Jeffrey Macklis, a professor in SCRB, whose laboratory is moving from Massachusetts General Hospital to the Bauer Building in Cambridge. Macklis said he’d been talking about such a facility with other members of SCRB for some time, so when he heard the idea of the center, he embraced it, and has already purchased CBI memberships for 20 members of hislab. “We’re very excited about coming together with our MCB colleagues,” Macklis said. “Just having Jeff Lichtman thinking about our microscopy is worth the membership alone.”last_img read more

first_img PANAMA CITY, Panama – A United Nations (UN) team launched a probe on Aug. 13 to determine whether a shipment of Cuban arms found hidden aboard a North Korean freighter violated UN sanctions, officials said. The Chong Chon Gang was boarded and searched on July 10 as it passed through the Panama Canal on suspicion it was carrying narcotics. Instead, inspectors uncovered an undeclared shipment of Cuban weapons, including two MiG-21 fighters. Cuban officials later said the weapons were being shipped to North Korea to be refurbished. “The UN mission is in the country now and began work early,” Panamanian Security Minister José Raúl Mulino said. The UN experts will report on their findings to the UN Security Council, which will decide whether the shipment violates a ban on arms transfers to North Korea. The six-member team is led by Martin Uden, a former British ambassador to South Korea who is currently the coordinator of the UN experts group charged with monitoring enforcement of sanctions against North Korea. The weapons systems were found in 25 containers buried under tons of sugar. Besides the MiGs, the shipment included anti-aircraft and guidance systems, missiles, explosives and command-and-control vehicles. Thirty-five North Korean sailors have been detained on arms trafficking charges that carry maximum sentences of up to 12 years in prison. The ship is moored at the port of Colón, but Panamanian authorities have kept secret for security reasons where the arms shipment is being held.

first_imgDec 18, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Authorities from Cambodia, Bangladesh, and Egypt reported that the H5N1 avian influenza virus has struck poultry again, according to new reports.Kao Phal, an agriculture ministry official in Cambodia, said the virus was detected in poultry in a village in Kandal province, where a 19-year-old man got sick after handling a dead chicken, according to an Associated Press (AP) report yesterday. The outbreak is Cambodia’s first since April 2007, according to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). The man’s illness was reported last week.The ministry said three ducks and one chicken tested positive for the H5N1 virus and that veterinarians have culled about 320 birds to stop the spread of the disease.Ly Sovann, an avian flu expert with Cambodia’s health ministry, told the AP that the man is recovering but remains hospitalized.Meanwhile, livestock officials in Bangladesh reported yesterday that the H5N1 virus struck two commercial poultry farms, one in Rajshahi district, in the northwestern part of the country near the border with India, and one about 30 miles northeast of Dhaka, the capital, according to a report from the OIE. The country’s last outbreak occurred in late September, striking a different poultry farm in Rajshahi.Veterinary workers culled 3,781 birds at the two farms to contain the outbreak.Elsewhere, animal health authorities in Egypt reported on Nov 27 that they had detected the virus in chickens in Minya governorate in central Egypt, according to a report that appeared today on the Egypt-based Strengthening Avian Influenza Detection and Response (SAIDR) Web site. SAIDR is a Johns Hopkins University project designed to help Egypt coordinate avian flu efforts with its international partners.The outbreak involved 15 backyard birds in a village in Minya’s Beni Mazar district, according to the SAIDR report. The birds had been vaccinated in August.Though the H5N1 virus is endemic in Egypt, the country’s last reported outbreak occurred in mid-June among backyard birds in Luxor governorate, according to the OIE. The country’s most recent human case, in a 16-year-old girl whose death was confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO) on Dec 16, was in Asyut governorate, about 50 miles south of Minya.According to an incident report on the SAIDR Web site detailing the veterinary investigation that followed the girl’s death, several birds near her home had been sick or died before she got sick. Neighbors had discarded the dead birds in a nearby drainage ditch. The girl’s family said they had recently bought and eaten two ducks. After one of the ducks died, the family quickly slaughtered the second one.In other developments, animal health officials in India today said they sealed part of its border with Bangladesh to help control the spread of the H5N1 virus, according to a Reuters report. Anisur Rahman, animal resource minister of West Bengal state, told Reuters the border closure affects the crossing between Malda district, where authorities have culled about 10,000 birds following recent outbreaks, and Bangladesh.He said the virus could have been spread by chickens and ducks smuggled from Bangladesh, Reuters reported.India is also battling outbreaks in Assam state.Meanwhile, an official from Indonesia’s agriculture ministry told the Jakarta Post yesterday that the government plans intensive measures against avian flu for the next 3 years hopes to stamp it out by 2014, Xinhua, China’s state news agency, reported yesterday.Tjeppy D. Soedjana, the ministry’s director general for animal husbandry, told the Post, “If all goes well, the nation will be free of the highly pathogenic bird flu virus by 2014.”According to Xinhua, he said the ministry has stopped the spread of the virus in only two of its 33 provinces: Gorontalo, in North Sulawesi, and North Maluku..Agriculture ministry records show that 294 regencies in 31 provinces have had avian flu outbreaks so far this year, which is up from 158 regencies and 25 provinces hit by outbreaks last year, according to the Xinhua report.In other avian flu news, officials in Germany on Dec 12 reported an outbreak of a low-pathogenic H5N3 virus at a commercial turkey farm in Cloppenburg, in the northwestern part of the country, according to an OIE report. The virus sickened 45 birds, and 8,400 others were culled to control the outbreak.Authorities did not identify the source of the virus. In October an H5N3 virus was detected at a zoo and another site in Leipzig in eastern Germany, according to OIE reports.See also:Dec 17 OIE report on Bangladesh outbreakDec 12 OIE report on Germany’s low-path outbreaklast_img read more

Investigators claimed they also found writings containing messages such as “I want to torture a baby, with pleasure or should I be ignorant” and “keep calm and don’t give me torture” and also a message on a whiteboard saying that the girl was disappointed with her family.According to the neighbors, the girl’s parents divorced when she was little and she lived with her father and stepmother.During the preliminary investigation, the police found that the teen liked to watch horror movies and “idolized” Chucky — the main character in Child’s Play, about a murderous, possessed doll.The teen’s confession led the police to suspect that her preference for horror movies could have driven her to commit the alleged murder. The police also surmised that the teen’s mental health was a major motivational factor, noting that she came from a broken home. They also discovered that she channeled her feelings into her drawings and writings.Read also: Movies not behind toddler’s murder, experts sayThe girl is currently undergoing rehabilitation in Handayani Children’s and Social Rehabilitation Center while awaiting trial.Harry expressed the hope that police officers could investigate the sexual abuse allegations to determine whether they were a factor in the motivation for the homicide.”The sexual-abuse allegations need to be investigated too to find a logical conclusion as to why [the suspect] committed the violence,” he said.Separately, Central Jakarta Police Criminal Unit head Adj.

first_img May 30, 2017 Governor Wolf, PennDOT Announce 2017 Highway Improvements in Southeast Pennsylvania SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Infrastructure,  Press Release,  Transportation Norristown, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced that over $550 million in highway and bridge improvements will begin or be bid across the Philadelphia region during the 2017 construction season, bringing the region’s total contract work this year to roughly 125 projects worth $2.2 billion.“The funding allocated for these projects not only reduces the backlog of Pennsylvania’s pavement and bridge demands, but significantly improves the growing need for better mobility and safety on our roadways,” Governor Wolf said. “This major investment in our infrastructure that will greatly improve our vast transportation network, enhance local communities and generate more robust economies across the state.”The announcement was made on a site within the Lafayette Street Extension Project, a $95 million project that will spur economic redevelopment in Norristown and strengthen one of Plymouth Township’s busy retail and industrial centers.Overall highlights in the 2017 construction season for PennDOT’s District 6 (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties) include:approximately 235 miles of paving; andapproximately 33 bridges will be repaired or replaced.“The infusion of additional funding through Act 89 has allowed us to move critical projects into construction that will help extend the service life of our highways and bridges, improve safety and strengthen our infrastructure for future generations,” District 6 Executive Kenneth M. McClain said.Notable projects that have recently moved into construction include:I-95 Betsy Ross Ramps/Adams Avenue Connector in Philadelphia ($81 million);U.S. 322 widening in Delaware County ($62.6 million);U.S. 202 bridges over Amtrak in Chester County ($26.4 million);Route 452 bridge replacement in Delaware County ($19.9 million);I-95 overhead bridges in Delaware County ($16.6 million);JFK Boulevard bridge rehabilitations in Philadelphia ($15.9 million);Pottstown signal system improvements in Montgomery County ($13.3 million);U.S 13 (Bristol Pike) resurfacing in Bucks County ($3 million); andRoute 41/Newark Road Intersection improvement in Chester County ($1.4 million).Notable projects that are expected to be bid this year include:I-95 GR4 in Philadelphia (estimated $278 million);Chestnut Street bridges in Philadelphia (apparent low bid $103.5 million);U.S. 1 improvement in Bucks County (estimated $85 million);U.S. 422 reconstruction in Montgomery County (estimated $38 million);I-95 resurfacing in Bucks County (apparent low bid $29.6 million);Markley Street/U.S. 202 South improvement in Montgomery County (estimated $24 million);I-76 resurfacing in Montgomery County (apparent low bid $21.1 million);MacDade Boulevard improvement in Delaware County (estimated $5.5 million); and14 contracts to resurface 235 segment miles in the Philadelphia region.A map showing all contracted work that District 6 has underway or that will start or be bid this year is available at on the “Construction Projects/Roadwork” page.Serving as another example of transportation’s impact on communities, the three-phase Lafayette Street project is funded 80 percent by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and 20 percent by Montgomery County. Montgomery County initiated the project and manages it in partnership with PennDOT and the FHWA. The first phase, which extended Lafayette Street past its former limit at Ford Street into Plymouth Township, finished construction in early 2015. The second phase, completed in December 2016, improved local roads in preparation for the eventual interchange and includes widening Ridge Pike between Ross Street and School Lane; realigning, rebuilding, and signalizing Fairfield Road and Diamond Avenue; and connecting the extended Lafayette Street into Diamond Avenue.The third phase, estimated at $25 million, is on schedule to be bid this fall with construction expected to begin in the spring of 2018 and will widen and rebuild the existing Lafayette Street in downtown Norristown. The work will also improve mobility for bicyclists and pedestrians by installing a pedestrian crossing at the Norristown Transportation Center and connecting the Schuylkill River Trail and the Chester Valley Trail at DeKalb Street and Lafayette Street.The regional investments complement the department’s Road Maintenance and Preservation, or Road MaP, program, which Governor Wolf recently announced will invest $2.1 billion in maintenance and highway and bridge capital projects over the next 10 years. Of the investments, $1 billion will go to roadway maintenance and $1.1 billion will go to highway and bridge capital projects. Of the capital projects, $500 million will be allocated to an Interstate preservation and reconstruction program, bringing that total program, begun in 2016, to $1 billion over the next 10 years. Another $600 million will go toward rehabilitation and reconstruction needs identified through the department’s district and regional planning efforts.For more information on projects occurring or being bid this year, those made possible by or accelerated by Act 89, or those on the department’s Four and Twelve Year Plans, visit read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Solskjaer criticises England over handling of youngster Greenwood Denmark hold England to draw Batshuayi double helps Belgium to massive win over Iceland Raheem Sterling’s last minute penalty salvaged England from another embarrassing result against Iceland as Gareth Southgate’s men survived going down to 10 men and Birkir Bjarnason also missing a late spot-kick to start their Nations League campaign with a 1-0 win in Reykjavik on Saturday.Four years on from one of English football’s most embarrassing nights in losing 2-1 to Iceland at Euro 2016, the Three Lions were far from the free-scoring force that romped through Euro 2020 qualifying in their first match for 10 months. Harry Kane had an early goal wrongly ruled out for offside before Kyle Walker was sent-off for two bookable offences 20 minutes from time.All of Iceland’s good defensive work was undone in the 89th minute when Sverrir Ingason was also harshly dismissed for a second booking when he blocked Sterling’s shot with his arm.With Kane having been replaced by Mason Greenwood, Sterling took responsibility from spot, but the drama did not end there.Straight from kick-off, Joe Gomez was adjudged to have bundled over Holmbert Fridjonsson inside the area, but Bjamason blazed the resulting penalty over.Southgate’s men continued to enjoy the vast majority of possession in the second period, but the closest they came to breaking the deadlock before the dramatic finale was when Iceland’s Kari Arnason flicked Kieran Trippier’s free-kick onto his own post. Moments later Walker’s ill-judged lunge to break up an Icelandic counter-attack left his side a man down.A breakthrough did not look like coming until Sterling collected an overhit corner and the ball struck Ingason’s arm in his attempt to block the shot.Sterling coolly rolled his penalty straight down the middle and how Bjarnason wish he had showed the same composure as his wild finish let England off the hook.Tags: EnglandRaheem SterlingUEFA Nations Leaguelast_img read more

first_img With Barclays Premier League survival the target for both sides on show in Norfolk it was Hughton’s Canaries who deservedly ran out 2-0 winners with Robert Snodgrass opening the scoring after 20 minutes. Alexander Tettey added the second with a contender for goal of the season while Marcos Alonso was sent off late on for a second yellow card. John O’Shea headed clear a cross but the dropping ball was hit on the volley by Tettey and it flashed past Mannone and into the far corner. Poyet’s reaction to falling two goals behind was to make a pair of tactical substitutions before the break, hauling off Ki Sung-yeung and Jack Colback and replacing them with Seb Larsson and Lee Cattermole. Fabio Borini finally forced a save out of John Ruddy as he shot across the England international, who easily kept hold of the low drive – but that was the best the visitors could muster from a woeful first-half display. Poyet sent his players out early for the second half with his words of irritation likely to still be ringing in their ears as the game got back under way. But it was Norwich who continued where they had left off as Van Wolfswinkel’s downward header from a Wes Hoolahan cross was tipped over by Mannone moments after the restart. Brown tested Ruddy shortly afterwards as the Black Cats looked to stage an unlikely comeback, with their first real telling period of domination following. Norwich soon stemmed the tide and the game suffered a lull in proceedings as the hosts looked to close the game out without incident. Hoolahan came close to adding a third after a neat interchange with substitute Gary Hooper but Mannone held his shot, with Snodgrass firing a free-kick inches over the crossbar with seven minutes remaining. Alonso, who had already been cautioned for a foul on Snodgrass, was shown a second yellow card by referee Phil Dowd in injury time. Substitute Nathan Redmond came close at the death but it would have only added the gloss to an important win for Norwich. The Norwich players once again seemed to play for their manager, who has come under pressure in recent weeks. Victories over West Ham, Crystal Palace and Hull came at times earlier in the campaign when the strain on Hughton was at its highest and this win certainly ranks in that category. The victory moves Norwich up to 13th and, more importantly, seven points clear of the relegation zone while Gus Poyet has a job on his hands to keep Sunderland afloat. The hosts were on top from the off, forcing a number of set-pieces which all failed to test Vito Mannone in the Sunderland goal, with the Italian not forced into action until Jonny Howson’s drive was hit straight into his arms. The former Arsenal goalkeeper could do nothing about Snodgrass’ opener after a mix-up in the Black Cats’ defence. Wes Brown failed to clear a low cross and the ball fell kindly at the feet of Johan Elmander, who calmly slotted a pass for Snodgrass to steer past Mannone and put the Canaries ahead. Howson came close to adding a second five minutes later as the hosts continued to completely dominate, this time arrowing an effort towards the corner only to see Mannone deny him once more. Ricky van Wolfswinkel, without a goal since the opening day draw against Everton, should have poked home a chance when Elmander’s low drive across goal found the Dutchman but he could not get enough contact on the ball to turn it home from six yards out. The second goal did not take too long to arrive and when it did it was straight out of the top drawer. Chris Hughton’s Norwich side always seem to deliver the goods when their manager’s position is under threat and that proved the case once again as they outclassed 10-man Sunderland at Carrow Road.

first_img Press Association Steve Tandy’s men led 10-8 at the break with Hassler replying to an earlier Gerhard van den Heever try. A Keatley penalty edged the hosts in front but they failed to profit from Rynier Bernardo’s sin-binning. Instead, Keatley had to cancel out a Biggar penalty and two more sure-footed strikes from the Ospreys fly-half steered the PRO12 leaders to their fourth straight win. Munster pressed early on but got no change from 12 attacking phases and full-back Dan Evans’ superb kick out of his 22 gained Ospreys some valuable territory. However, Munster’s solid set-piece game launched them downfield again and after the forwards battered up to the try-line, Keatley swung a peach of a pass out for returning winger Van den Heever to score in the left corner. The try went unconverted and Ospreys were not long in replying, with flanker Justin Tipuric, who was involved twice in the attack, popping a beautiful pass for Hassler to go over unopposed out wide on the right. Biggar nailed the difficult conversion and despite losing the influential Tipuric to a head injury in the 25th minute, the Welsh region continued to carry the bigger ball-carrying threat with Biggar and Webb lively throughout. Munster were finding some joy on Van den Heever’s wing and the South African was hauled down short during a promising break, while a block by Josh Matavesi ruled out a second try for Hassler. A line-out infringement allowed Biggar to fire a 46-metre penalty through the uprights, before Keatley responded before the interval when punishing Dan Baker for taking out Murray at a ruck. The pair outshone their Munster counterparts, first-time captain Conor Murray and Ian Keatley, with the visiting pack also getting a very good return from their scrum. Biggar was unerring with the boot, landing four penalties and converting Jeff Hassler’s 15th-minute try, while scrum-half Webb’s influence as a distributor and tactician saw him deservedly win the man-of-the-match award. As the drizzle came down for the start of the second half, Keatley drilled an early penalty over to move Munster ahead for the second time. The hosts looked to have gained a key advantage when Bernardo was guilty of pulling down a Munster line-out in the 47th minute, but Keatley disappointed with a poor strike off the kicking tee. Biggar and Keatley exchanged penalties as Ospreys coped well with their sudden numerical disadvantage, and the home crowd’s sense of frustration grew. As Munster’s scrum began to buckle, Van den Heever was pinged for holding on in the tackle and another accurate kick from Biggar put his side into a 14-13 lead. Ospreys’ control of the breakdown was particularly evident as they set up another scoring chance for Biggar in the 69th minute and he delivered once again. Some clever tactical kicking from Biggar and Webb kept Ospreys in the right areas of the pitch and although CJ Stander and replacement Jack O’Donoghue sparked a furious late rally from Munster, they could not avoid a second defeat of the season at Thomond Park. Half-backs Dan Biggar and Rhys Webb led Ospreys to a hard-earned 19-14 Guinness PRO12 victory over Munster at Thomond Park. last_img read more

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisIt was opening day in Alpena Circuit Court for the trial of 67–year–old Dennis Albert Liske. Liske who has been charged with sexual conduct in the 2nd degree sat in silence as jury selection began for his case.One by one Judge Mack along with Prosecutor, Ed Black, and Liske’s lawyer, Dan White questioned citizens to see who would be fit for the trial. Before selecting 12 people to determine Liske’s fate, Liske’s lawyer, called out names of possible witnesses who would be involved with the trial.Judge Mack went over the rule while Ed Black questioned possible jury candidates. At least 15 people we’re let go before a final jury was selected around 11:30 am.“You’re excused,” were the words Judge Mack uttered to citizens he decided to let go.Some issues while selecting a jury included the fact that over a dozen called to duty knew Liske. Some admitted that they would have a difficult time and felt uncomfortable with the facts of the case.“So again we haven’t given the specifics of the case. But if you’re having difficulty of the subject matter or if you think it will cause you not to be able to sit on the jury to a certain attempt to be able to listen to the judge’s obstructions and only consider the evidence that he obstructs you to consider?” Prosecuting Attorney, Ed Black questioned to the jury.Opening statements finally started around 1 pm. Liske was charged with a single count of criminal sexual conduct in the 2nd degree stemming back from an incident involving his now 13–year–old granddaughter.She was 12 back in January when she claimed Liske inappropriately touched her chest at his home. Liske pleaded not guilty to the charge.

first_imgCast: Zune MP3 Player (4). Maybe we should blame production for this, but there wasn’t much brought to the table outside of Wes and Bananas as a speechwriting team.T.J. Lavin: Kicker Car Audio System (7). It’s tough to fault Teej for anything he does, but he was a little over the top with his praise of Jenny.Overall: Zune MP3 Player (4). Our scoring system is weighted, so if it’s a bad production/cast night, that’s gonna hurt the overall score. Welcome to the recap for Episode 2 of DeeTV’s “The Challenge: Total Madness.” What’s that? It’s MTV? Well, you wouldn’t have known it from this episode, which was dominated by one of the least entertaining people in the entire cast. And even though Wednesday’s episode gave us insight into how the nominations, Tribunals, and interrogations will go the rest of the season, MTV still spent an awful lot of time on just one of the 27 remaining cast members.Well, four of the 27 remaining cast members. Rookie Jenn was all over this episode, too, and she provided us with one of the all-time cringiest moments in Challenge history. Tori and Jordan were also prominent players this week, but not for any positive reasons. It’s rare that a 90-minute episode with almost the entire cast can be so uneventful, but with zero hook-ups, one notable argument, a suspense-free elimination, and a whole lot of strategy/game talk (that, again, was largely centered around just a small handful of people), this episode was a letdown after a solid season premiere. Perhaps this is the Most Dangerous Season EverTM because viewers might die of boredom? MORE CHALLENGE: Season 35 cast breakdown | Best competitors of all-timeWe’re not saying a competition/strategy-based episode is always a bad thing — far from it — but if you tuned in hoping to see Kailah and Bear hook up, someone throw a punch, or Kaycee appear on screen for more than two total seconds, well, better luck next time. Let’s break down what did happen on the second episode the “The Challenge: Total Madness.”“The Challenge: Total Madness:” Episode 2 recap***NOTHING BUT SPOILERS AHEAD***The episode starts with everyone talking about the new must-win-an-elimination-to-be-in-the-final twist. Jay doubles down on the fact he’s the only one eligible to run T.J.’s final right now, which is what someone who doesn’t know how the future works would say. CT and Ashley both complain that this will blow up their strategies, with CT explaining that his entire Challenge career was about intimidating people so he wouldn’t get put into eliminations. This isn’t exactly true because there was also that time he hooked up with Shauvon on a roof.Still, CT pretty much has the strategy figured out: Be nice to people so they put you in an elimination against the opponent of your choosing. He also points out that no one will put Jenny in an elimination unless they’re an idiot. (Dee: Hold my beer…)Tori says she wants to go in first, and Big T says she has been training hard in the offseason and wants a chance to show people how strong she really is. Chances are, most of the females would also like to see how strong Big T really is because they still don’t think she’s very strong. Her wig game in the talking heads is on point, though.Jenn and Rogan are flirting/talking strategy, and Dee is watching like an attentive koala. (We’ll pay that off later). Rogan acknowledges that because Jenn has no alliance, it’s probably not smart to associate with her, but he also admits that sometimes he “likes to think with his penis,” so you can see his dilemma. It was a rare moment of self-awareness and one most guys reading this can relate to. Maybe the gals, too. It’s a boundary-less world nowadays.Dee, who has intimate knowledge of Rogan​’s penis-centric thought process, isn’t a fan of it this season, and after a pep talk from Tori, proudly proclaims she’s not OK with Rogan moving on yet. Not sure it’s her choice, but fortune favors the bold.DAILY COMPETITION: AIRDROP EXTRACTIONThe cast assembles in front of giant letters that spell out “Challenge,” and as is the case every year, we’re left to wonder if they fly those over from the States or have a company in the host country make them. It really is one of the most enduring mysteries of the show, along with what T.J. does all day and how Aneesa keeps getting invited back.The cast is randomly divided into nine groups of three. (Why random? Pick nine captains and let’s do this schoolyard style). Each team has to transfer 15 “heavy” military crates one mile between two “missile launch platforms.” The top three teams advance to Round 2, which is where “all the fun happens,” according to T.J. The three remaining teams will board a helicopter and drop their nine bombs on targets on the missile launch platforms. The team that has the “most accurate bombs” will make up the Tribunal. Missiles? Bombs? Helicopters? That’s right — some real Most Dangerous Season EverTM s***.The teams:Wes/Jordan/Jenny (Team Is This Rigged?)Josh/Bayleigh/Jenn (Team CBS)Kaycee/Jay/CT (Team Eye Chart)Cory/Swaggy/Dee (Team Heavy D and the Boyz)Fessy/Kyle/Melissa (Team Best Looking)Ashley/Bear/Jenna (Team New Racks and Alternative Facts)Nelson/Kailah/Tori (Team Up-a-Cup and a Young Buck)Bananas/Aneesa/Nany (Team Past Their Primes)Rogan/Big T/Mattie Lynn (Team Funny Accent)Already, we have problems, as clearly teams with two females are at a disadvantage. I understand that we, in fact, live a boundary-less world nowadays, but there’s also a common-sense world that says three of the four teams with two dudes are gonna advance. (Spoiler alert: That’s what happens.)Jordan says he wants to keep pace with Fessy because Fessy is a “D1 football player.” Again, D1 FCS football player. Don’t want to keep harping on that every week, but, you know, slight difference. Josh says Bayleigh “has proven that she’s a strong competitor”, and Bayleigh also says she’s a “strong competitor,” so clearly Bayleigh​’s “speak-it-into-existence” plan is working because we haven’t seen her do anything (and that includes her “Big Brother” season).Josh is worried about Jenn, who’s worried about herself. She says if she’s not in the Tribunal, she’s “130 percent” going into elimination (let’s hope fractions aren’t involved). She then tells us she wants to start her own swimsuit line, and that’s when viewers should have known there was a 230-percent chance she was going into elimination. If a cast member ever talks about future business endeavors, you know right then things are about to go south.Tori sees Jenn struggling and makes an analogy about jumping on her like a lion (no word if she was referring to the lion that stalked and presumably ate Natalie after her wrong turn during the “Final Reckoning” final). Aneesa says Jenn is “looking her best, trying her least,” which would carry a lot more weight if it was coming from someone else. So, yeah, we get it — Jenn sucks — and while we wait for her inevitable demise, we take a break to see Bear lust over Kailah for the second straight week. Just hook up and get it over with, please.Big T is doing surprisingly well (according to Rogan), and Ashley realizes this just isn’t her day and decides to mail it in. We compared her to LeBron in our season preview because of the money she’s invested back into her body, and once again she reminds us of LBJ by conserving her energy for when it really matters. Pretty soon we might be having Ashley-vs.-Jordan for the greatest of all-time debates…just like we do with LeBron!Team Is This Rigged? (Wes, Jordan, Jenny) is the first to finish (duh), followed by Team Best Looking (Fessy, Kyle, Melissa) and Team Heavy D and the Boyz (Cory, Swaggy, Dee). Team Is This Rigged? gets first crack to drop bombs from the helicopter — which seems like a punishment, not a reward, for finishing first — but much to everyone’s delight (especially Bananas), they struggle, hitting just two of nine targets. Even Wes, who’s on the team, doesn’t mind doing poorly because “there’s nothing better than seeing Jordan lose.” Man, Jordan must be a real dick, huh? (Not an insult on this show.)Team Best Looking follows, which means Melissa finally gets to speak this season. After a couple misses, they hit seven of nine targets. As Dee gets ready to board the helicopter with Team Heavy D and the Boyz, Bananas suggests this is a good time for Rogan and Jenn to hook up, though Dee might kamikaze out of the helicopter to stop them. Rogan is a fan of the idea, pointing out they have 20 minutes, while Bananas says they’ll be good even if they have just five. And that wins the award for classiest exchange of the night.Team Heavy D and the Boyz hit all nine targets, putting Dee, Swaggy, and Cory in the Tribunal. Swaggy says “he’s lit” (the second-most annoying thing he says this episode), and after Jordan throws a tantrum (and Bananas makes fun of him for dropping one of his boxes “in Germany”), everybody returns to the bomb shelter, where they will decide on the first female to go into the elimination round.STRATEGY TALKDee pushes for the house to pick Jenn for three reasons: “She’s the weakest girl…her social game is s***…she’s flirting with my man/ex man, whatever he is, but I don’t like it.” Jenny wants to get chosen by the Tribunal because she says this is an easy path to a red skull (she must have used a strategy app in addition to her equations app in the offseason). Fessy admits he has no clue what’s going on, which doesn’t come as a surprise if you watched his “Big Brother” season and saw him get led around like a donkey by J.C.Jenn, in a misguided attempt to save herself, turns to Bananas and Wes, and so begins the cringiest 10 minutes of the entire season. The two “showmen” (Bananas’ word) convince Jenn she needs to have a speech ready for nominations, and they all but dictate what she should say, including comparing herself to a stock that will be at its highest when she’s losing in the final. Bananas sums it up: “I don’t think that Jenn actually understands what’s happening to her right now. It’s basically, like, we’re giving her a roadmap that leads directly off of a cliff into a pit of sharks and broken glass.”Actually, Nelson sums it up best by sitting there with his mouth agape, undoubtedly shocked that he’s not the dumbest cast member this season.ELIMINATION VOTE AND INTERROGATIONBananas kicks off the elimination vote by having Wes read the docket for that week’s meeting, which is just an excuse to put poor Jenn in the spotlight. Jenn nervously starts by saying, “Hello…greetings, earthlings…” and that’s when even the most black-hearted “Challenge” viewers had to watch between their fingers. Words can’t do justice to how brutal it was. She points out that everyone thinks she’s weak, but that’s really not that bad of a thing. Mattie Lynn shows up for just the second time this season (not a good sign for her long-term prospects) and says you should never call yourself weak even if you are weak. Jenn goes on to explain that they should keep her around so they can beat her in a final, which actually makes sense (shout out to Katie Doyle), but as she continues to give “one of the worst speeches in nomination history,” according to CT, she goes off the rails and says rookies shouldn’t go against strong competitors and everyone laughs at her.Wes finally puts her out of her misery and votes her into Purgatory. Jenn is hilariously shocked by this. Everyone but Bananas, Rogan, and CT vote for her, with those three throwing their votes toward Big T. Wes says he’s had a fun couple hours and goes off to continue growing his beard.Jenn then decides it would be a good idea to get into an argument with Dee, who holds the fate of her opponent in her hands. Did Wes tell her to do that, too? Jenn accuses Dee of watching her in her sleep, saying she peaks under her koala eye mask to make sure she’s not hooking up with Rogan. Night-vision footage seems to confirm this, which once again proves that Dee is a real D(ee)-blocker.She’s also a T-blocker, as in Tori. Tori wants to go into Purgatory, but Dee says (numerous times) that her “No. 1 girl” is Jenny, and she promised her a spot in Purgatory this week. Tori isn’t about that life, and points out that Dee won $250,000 last season by riding her and Jordan’s coattails. Jordan says if Dee doesn’t vote in Tori, then he’s done working with her, which seems a bit dramatic, but, as established, Jordan is a dick.After a weird conversation where Tori and Dee stand in lockers like Screech on “Saved By the Bell” and production plays church music, Dee reaffirms that Tori is not her No. 1 and is now annoyed that Tori threatened her (which she knew because Tori started the conversation with “This is not a threat…”). Dee says for the second time this episode that she has big balls (hey, it’s a boundary-less world), and we’re off to the Tribunal.The Tribunal decides to nominate Jenny, Tori, and Big T. It’s odd Swaggy doesn’t want to get Bayleigh in Purgatory in what figures to be the easiest matchup a girl can have all season, but she’s such a strong competitor (11th place on “Big Brother 20”) that she probably doesn’t have to worry.Big T says absolutely nothing of consequence while being interrogated, Swaggy refers to himself in the third person when talking to Jenny (his most annoying moment of the night), and Dee and Tori go for a lengthy Round 3 about whether Dee owes Tori and Jordan anything because of last season. Holy crap, if it wasn’t for Wes and Bananas f’ing with Jenn, this episode would be instantly forgettable.Later, Wes points out to Dee that it might not be smart to give Jenny a free red skull and ticket to the final, as that will make it more difficult for Dee to not only make it to the final but also win. This thought had definitely never occurred to Dee, but she pretends that it has and suggests if they get to Purgatory and see it’s a puzzle, she might pivot to Tori, who is “s***” at puzzles. Not a bad save, all things considered.Also, we should note that we’re 75 minutes into the episode and Kailah, Jenna, and Nany, aka the “Holy Trinity,” have said fewer than four combined words…which kinda makes sense since it’s Holy Week.PURGATORY (ELIMINATION COMP)A buzzer sounds and we’re headed to Purgatory. The cast is very excited, and they get even more fired up when T.J. explains yet another twist: Someone in the Tribunal can vote themselves into Purgatory. He doesn’t explain how the voting process works for that (Can Dee be overruled by the two guys if she wants to go in? What would’ve happened if there were two females in the Tribunal?), but Teej likes to keep us on a need-to-know basis, so I guess we’ll find out later.Everyone is pumped to see if Dee will take on her early-season nemesis, but she explains that she’s a “woman of her word” and has to vote for Jenny because they shook hands (boo!). If you’re keeping track at home, that means “big balls” Dee passed on the easiest opportunity she’ll have all season to earn a red skull. Care to take back your praise, Wes? To be fair, Dee also explains that she wasn’t mentally ready to go into elimination (valid) and that she was worried about dying of embarrassment if she lost, which is the opposite of what someone with big balls would say.The Tribunal votes in Jenny by a 3-0 margin, and we don’t even need to watch the rest.The competition is called “Flip the Switch”, and each competitor has to flip 10 barrels on strings over some poles. The first person to flip all 10 to their opponent’s side wins and is officially fit to run “T.J.’s final” (something he says three times in the next four minutes).Jenny throws her barrels over the poles with ease, while Jenn “looks like a little kid at a birthday party trying to keep the balloon from touching the ground,” according to CT. He adds a faint “whee” to drive the point home of just how ineffectual Jenn is.As the rest of the cast freaks out over Jenny essentially doing the comp with one hand, Jordan must have been like, “Yeah? Welcome to the club.” T.J. gets a little too excited over Jenny’s performance and says she could “single-handedly smoke [himself] and anyone else up there.” Swaggy yells out, “Facts!” when Teej says this, continuing his quest to speak only in Tweets.After T.J. congratulates Jenn on getting beat by Jenny (odd), Bananas hollers,”We miss you already” as Jenn leaves. Call me crazy, but I think he really means it.Unlike the producers of this episode, Ashley has no time for Dee, saying, “Dee thinks she’s this great game player ’cause she learned from Wes, but she gave the strongest girl in the house the easiest ride to the final, and now she’s gonna have to compete against her in a final. Good luck, honey. Dream on.” (pause) “Pfft.” The “pfft” was a nice touch.Jordan says Dee can’t be trusted, and she’s the “only one” on his and Tori’s list right now. Great, does that mean we’ll have to endure another Dee-Tori-Jordan-centric episode this season? If so, I’d like to opt out. As the credits roll, Wes has a rare moment of humility and admits he doesn’t know what the right strategy is, which we already knew from when he was praising Dee.WHAT WE LEARNEDLike all reality TV producers, “The Challenge” crew likes to foreshadow. Sometimes it’s for the immediate next one or two episodes; sometimes it’s for the entire season. Based on what we saw in Episode 2, a few things seem clear:Jenny was talked up so much that you can almost book her appearance in the final. Fessy also got talked up by none other than Jordan, so he’s likely going a long way this season.It’s not a death knell to get minimal screen team early in the season (after all, there are still 27 people on the show), but for Jenna, Nany, Kailah and Kaycee to get a combined one talking head is a very bad sign for all four. There’s a big difference in getting a little bit of time (like Ashley and even Bayleigh did) and getting zero time. Jay, Kyle, and Nelson were mostly no-shows tonight, too.We also learned that Fessy “came to compete,” (thanks), Big T wants to be in “every single Tribunal” in the future (bold strategy), and Bear and Cory — two of the biggest cads in recent Challenge history — draw the line at being a sore loser (a man got to have a code).We’ll see next week if the guys are smart enough to nominate Jay. He has a red skull, which means he’s taking someone’s spot in the final, and he’s likely the worst male competitor in the game. He should be a unanimous nomination, with one of the big players trying to manipulate the Tribunal to put him in against the rookie. Based on CT’s rant early in the episode, my money’s on him going in.OVERALL EPISODE RATINGFrom now on, we’ll rate aspects of the episode based on the daily competition prizes cast members used to win on older Challenges. Here’s our rating system:1=Freestyle Kite (this was actually a prize given out)2=Burger King Feast (apologies to Turbo, who was very excited about this)3=Blockbuster Gift Certificate (there’s one still open somewhere)4=Zune MP3 Player (iPods were overrated)5=Razor Scooter (these were cool for hot minute in the mid-aughts)6=T-Mobile Sidekick (the best cell phone for getting a clue from T.J.)7=Kicker Car Audio System (who didn’t want to win one of these?)8=Plasma TV (this was a big deal when it was won)9=BMW motorcycle (Brad’s finest Challenge moment…other than explaining that him and Britni weren’t on an “I love you” program)10=Saturn Ion Quad Coupe (hey, a car’s a car)Production: Razor Scooter (5). Nothing great, nothing bad. At least they gave us a dual talking head with Wes and Bananas and had footage of Dee watching Jenn. They also had some nice reaction shots of a horrified Aneesa during Jenn’s speech.Competitions: Kicker Car Audio System (7). The daily comp was demanding and the second part looked fun, and the elimination comp could have been decent with more evenly matched competitors.last_img read more

first_imgFormer Jamaican and Caribbean junior squash champion Julian Morrison broke through to claim his first senior title when he won the Liguanea Club Open on Saturday night.In an explosive five-game finals match, Morrison stopped seasoned campaigner O’neil Johnson, but the veteran didn’t go down without a fight.Undaunted by the fact that Morrison was the favourite, Johnson served notice that it would be a hot contest when he won the first game. Morrison rallied to win the second and pull even, only to have Johnson come back and take the third.The youngster dug deep to blast back and take the fourth game. The final game went right down to the wire, but the rising squash star kept his head to win 19-21, 21-20, 19-21, 21-18, 21-20.MORE CONFIDENCE”This is pretty good because it gives me more confidence playing at the senior level, which will help me now that I’m on the pro tour where I’ll have to play top players,” said Morrison, reflecting on his first senior title. He recently joined the Professional Squash Association (PSA).In another exciting match, Andrew Levy beat Greg McClure 3-2 to win the consolation plate.Liguanea Club General Manager Gordon Edwards said Morrison’s win brought the weeklong tournament to a satisfying conclusion.”We had great matches and good-quality squash all week, but it was good to see Julian Morrison, a young player who we have watched grow up, come through and win his first senior title,” Edwards said.The tournament was sponsored by Total, UHY Dawgen, Avis, Lifespan, KLAS ESPN Sports FM, Epic Technologies, Jamaica Biscuit Company and Cari-Med.last_img read more

first_imgDonegal U21 star Adam Neely suffered a nasty injury last night in what was an accidental clash with an Ardara player.GAA: Dungloe earned a vital win in their bid to ensure they retain their Division One status last night against fellow strugglers Ardara. Tony Boyle’s side defeated Ardara on a score-line of 1-14 to 0-15 in what supporters said was played like a Donegal SFC clash, not surprising when there was so much at stake.Donegal U21 star Adam Neely sustained a broken nose and a few stitches after an accidental clash in the first-half. However, the game was marred by some nasty scenes towards the end of the match and CJ Molloy and Martin Redmond both saw red late on.There was little between the sides but Martin Redmond’s goal proved crucial and was the difference between the sides.Adrian Sweeney was inspired, and at 40 shows no signs of hanging up the boots, and why would you when you have still have the quality and class that he possesses.This was a huge win for Dungloe, only their second in the league, and their first since their opening day win over Bundoran. Ardara battled hard and they showed enough to suggest that they should be OK, but it’s going to go down to the wire with very little separating Glenswilly, Ardara, Dungloe, Bundoran and Termon.Dungloe travel to Termon next weekend, but most certainly will be without Neely after his nasty injury.OUCH!

first_imgIreland’s most famous amateur weatherman has slammed sun-cream manufacturers as he predicted many more hot summer days for Donegal.Michael Gallagher has predicted Ireland’s weather for many years using the signs of plants and animals.But as well as studying natural weather signs, the Glenfin postman is also an expert on natural cures. He has even written a book ‘Cures and Remedies of a Bygone Era’ which has become a best-seller.Michael says he is annoyed that people are splashing out a fortune on fancy sun creams and lotions when the answer is in their back garden.“I have watched a lot of people getting sun burned in the past couple of weeks and it’s a shame.“People years ago never spent a fortune on fancy creams because they couldn’t afford to or didn’t need to. “All they have to do is to plant a number of Aloe Vera plants and they have all the natural sun protection they need.“All they have to do is to run the juice of the plant into them and it’s a great protection from the sun.“Even if they get burned the juices from the plant can be rubbed in and it soothes the skin.“It annoys me when these sun cream companies go on television and advertise how good they are. A lot of the time people are just buying the name,” he said.Despite MIchael’s claims, Aloe Vera does not offer protection from UV rays according to scientists. But the good news according to Michael is that the warm weather is here to stay for the meantime.“I said a few weeks ago that we are going to have a number of long periods of good sunshine over the summer.“It may cool down a little bit but I still think it will be very settled and I think we will still get plenty of more sunshine,” he said.WEATHERMAN MICHAEL’S COOL RECEPTION FOR SUNCREAM COMPANIES! was last modified: July 12th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:aloe veraMichael Gallagherpostmansun creamweathermanlast_img read more

first_img4 April 2003There was a glittering audience of several hundred guests at the recent launch of Walter and Albertina Sisulu: In Our Lifetime.The main speaker was former President Nelson Mandela, who left soon after his speech because he was scheduled to address another glittering audience at still another launch of yet another biography of a struggle stalwart, the late Ismail Meer, at the opposite end of town.Biographies of struggle heroes are becoming a growth industry. There are various editions, for example, of “Long Walk to Freedom”, Mandela’s biography: one can find it in one volume or two, illustrated or not, hardback or softcover, complete or condensed. Mandela books The Sisulu biography, written by daughter-in-law Elinor Sisulu, and A Fortunate Man, the Meer autobiography, finished after his death by his wife and children, are only the latest in this publishing phenomenon.Letlapa Mphahlele’s controversial Child of This Soil recounts the life of a freedom fighter, living in the bush and carrying on even after his organisation called for an end to armed struggle.Bandiet Out of Jail by Hugh Lewin is an update of an earlier struggle book with recollections of life in prison; the original book was banned during the apartheid era for the light it shed on prison conditions.Other prison biographies include “Voices from Robben Island”, featuring recollections from a number of famous ex-political prisioners, and “Reflections in Prison”, biographical sketches of some famous ex-Robben Island inmates. The classic “Island in Chains” by Indres Naidoo dates back to the 1960s.Women too spent time in jail. “Convictions: A Woman Political Prisoner Remembers”, by Jean Middleton, is a quirky look at prison life by a white, middle-class woman, while “Prison Diaries” is based on a diary kept by Fatima Meer, widow of Ismail Meer, a decade later. South African prison biographies Back to the present, a biography of feisty politician Patricia de Lille has been written by unsinkable journalist Charlene Smith – a happy conjunction of biographer and subject.Country of My Skull by Antjie Krog can be classified as a struggle biography because it tracks so many stories told to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, as well as describing the deleterious effect covering the commission had on heretofore hardened journalists.The Essential Steve Biko includes, among essays by the founder of the Black Consciousness Movement, pieces by people who knew him well. And Fischer’s Choice: A Life of Bram Fisher by Martin Meredith is the latest biography of the Afrikaner advocate who defended resistence leaders in court before being imprisoned himself.“Our generation is fast disappearing”, Mandela said at the launch of the Sisulu book. But with more and more struggle biographies filling the shelves of bookshops and libraries, they are leaving behind a considerable legacy in print. A Fortunate ManIsmail Meer described himself as “A Fortunate Man” (Zebra) – in his family, friends, colleagues in the legal profession, his political comrades and his Muslim religion.His career tracked the progress of the liberation struggle among South African Indians. Like his wife, Fatima Meer, he spent time in prison, but that did not dampen his enthusiasm for the struggle, and he was prominent in civil disobedience, including the South African Indian Congress’s 1946 passive resistance campaign.Mandela described Meer as “a man of great integrity, both in his personal life and his political thinking”. The families were close; the Mandela children stayed with the Meers when they studied in Durban.When he died at the age of 82, his autobiography was not completed: but his wife and daughters have finished the tale of a man who fellow political ex-prisoner Ahmed Kathrada said was “more than an individual – he was an institution . His life was closely interwoven with numerous landmark events in the liberation struggle, and with the leaders and activists connected with those events.”Get “A Fortunate Man” from: Kalahari.netExclusive Books  Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matthew Wilde Progressive Farmer Crops EditorFarmers in the north-central U.S. are looking for lost soybean yield.Shawn Conley, a soybean specialist at the University of Wisconsin, said the genetic yield potential of America’s most widely planted legume is 110 bushels per acre or more in most states, depending on climate and soil conditions. But most farmers average 50 to 55 bushels per acre.“Where are the other 50 to 55 bushels?” Conley asked. “We’re working to minimize that yield gap.”The completion last year of a three-year study Conley co-led with University of Nebraska agronomist Patricio Grassini called “Benchmarking Soybean Production Systems in the North Central U.S.” can help farmers do just that. It identifies factors that preclude soybean farmers from obtaining yields that should be potentially possible on their farms.Production and management data from more than 8,000 fields covering about 600,000 acres was collected and analyzed. The North Central Soybean Research Program (NCSRP) — a collaboration of 12 Midwest state soybean associations — spent more than $1.3 million in soybean checkoff funds on the multistate project. Other universities and state soybean research programs also contributed to the effort.Researchers examined what high-yielding farmers are doing compared to low- and average-yielding contemporaries with similar soil types and environments. The project team pinpointed the most critical yield-limiting factors, such as planting too late.Industry officials say the project’s return on investment could be significant, possibly in the billions of dollars, if producers implement various soybean-management and production practices highlighted in the study.“We’re looking to put more bushels in the bin with less cost per acre,” said Cecil Demott, NCSRP president and Rock Port, Missouri, farmer. “I think there’s a lot of value in that.”Soybean farmers are finding ways to boost revenues despite market and trade challenges. This story is the first in a six-part series, More Green From Beans. The series will look at ways soybean farmers are finding ways to answer trade challenges by boosting revenues through switching up agronomics and finding new markets.FINE-TUNING MANAGEMENTThe study pointed out at least 10 management practices farmers can implement, which vary among states, to boost yields and minimize the yield gap. Conley highlighted several practices that cross state lines.— Plant early. Soybean yields decrease 0.2 to 0.5 bushel per day when seed is planted after April 25, give or take a few days depending on location, Conley explained.— Control weeds. Keeping weeds at bay requires a two-pass herbicide program that includes a pre-emerge with residual and a postapplication.— Manage pests. Apply a foliar fungicide and insecticide at the R3 growth stage.— Cut seeding rates. Many farmers still plant 150,000 seeds or more per acre, which can lead to disease problems such as white mold that thrive in a high-plant-population environment and dense crop canopy. Conley said reduced seeding rates, especially in high-productivity fields, will maintain and can increase yields, as well as save on seed costs.— Install tile. The study shows farmers with drained fields can plant five days earlier than in nontiled fields. Plus, soybeans don’t like “wet feet,” Conley said. Both can boost productivity.Conley and other researchers say it’s probably not realistic that the entire yield gap can be wiped out by eliminating a few yield-limiting factors. Different soil types, fertility, weather and other uncontrollable conditions affect production.“But we’re always going to be chasing it (genetic yield potential),” Conley said.Increasing yields by 20 bushels per acre or more is possible, he said, by fine-tuning management practices that are cost-effective and logistically feasible.“Many farmers still think they can plant soybeans on May 15, and it doesn’t hurt yields at all. That’s easily worth 10 bushels right there in some environments,” Conley said. “The study also showed anywhere from a zero- to 7-bushel-per-acre increase with a blanket foliar fungicide and insecticide application based on climate and soil characteristics.“It’s pretty eye-opening how many farmers are just realizing this [at least one fungicide and insecticide application] over the last year or two,” he continued. “If farmers can squeeze out an extra 5 or 10 more bushels per acre, that’s significant.”Keith Kemp is trying to make his West Manchester, Ohio, fields more productive. He’s participating in the research effort and using project results to become more efficient.Kemp, an NCSRP board member, is committed to planting soybeans as early as the weather and soil conditions allow. He cut his seeding rate by 30,000 to 50,000 seeds per acre, to 130,000, and is contemplating going as low as 100,000 seeds per acre next year.Kemp estimated he’s already saving about $25 per acre in seed costs. Yields have also increased by 10% to 15%, he cited, by planting in mid-April, if conditions allow, instead of early May.“We discovered we need to plant soybeans before corn, but it’s hard for some farmers to realize that,” Kemp said. “The more sunlight plants take in, the more pods. The research we’re doing is changing our whole industry.”MORE BUSHELS, MORE REVENUEThe U.S. is awash in soybeans primarily because of reduced Chinese exports, which is suppressing values. The projected average farm price for the 2019-20 marketing year is $8.40 per bushel, according to USDA.That doesn’t change NCSRP’s mission, executive director Ed Anderson explained. Its farmer leaders invest soybean checkoff funds in programs via university research and Extension to improve yields and profitability.“Even when prices aren’t very good, farmers are still paid per bushel,” said Anderson, who also serves as senior director of research for the Iowa Soybean Association.U.S. soybean farmers are expected to average 47.9 bpa this year, according to the USDA September “Crop Production Report.” Production is estimated at 3.63 billion bushels. The north-central region accounts for 82% of soybean production in the United States, data shows.If the nation’s soybean farmers could increase the average yield by 10 bpa, that would be another 760 million bushels. Even at $8 per bushel, that’s an extra $6 billion in revenue.“The project isn’t just about producing more bushels, which is important,” Anderson asserted. “A key piece is looking at ways to maximize inputs and production practices to drive profitability.”All soybean checkoff-funded research can be found at MORE INFORMATION:— To see the full benchmarking report and individual state results, visit Wilde can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @progressivwilde(ESAG)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

first_imgUs Indians have a fetish for cruisers! Looking at this syndrome, American brand UM Motorcycles showcased and launched two new motorcycles in India at the last Auto Expo. At the show both bikes looked inviting and after a rather substantial wait, we got our hands on one of them; the Renegade Commando to be precise. The company’s vision here is to offers an ‘affordable yet premium American product’ in India. So have they been successful?ALSO READ:Ducati Monster 821 is a bike that one needs and has to haveThe companys vision here is to offer an affordable yet premium American product in India. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb) The Renegade Commando is pretty much a looker. It comes in the matte military type green shade and looks quite attractive at first glance. The large fenders both up front and back hide the meaty 110/90 16-inch tyre up front and the massive 140/90 15-inch tyre at the back. The 41mm front forks house the headlamp which has a cover behind which announces the name of the bike. The handlebar design gels well with the overall theme and at the same time the switchgear felt nice and crisp to operate.The instrument panel sits atop the 18-litre fuel tank. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb) The large 18-litre fuel tank also houses the instrument panel which comprises of a large speedo and a digital display for other tell tales. Beside this console there is also a USB slot provided which can be used to charge mobile devices. Quite a good feature to have these days.advertisementSwitchgear works well. But lacks finish. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb) The seat height is also kept low which should be comfortable for most Indian frames. The rear seat too offers decent amount of space and the backrest too provides comfort to the pillion. There is also a small storage space under the rear seat and it does come handy.Switchgear works well. But lacks finish. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb)ALSO READ: Honda Hornett vs Suzuki Gixxer vs TVS Apache 160 vs Yamaha FZIt all seems well as of now! But look closely and you will start noticing certain issues. First and foremost the finish of various things are not up to the mark. The mudguards are not properly rounded at the edges and the quality of rubber parts are a doubt as well. While most of the bikes we get come with fancy decaling we appreciate the bare basic tone of the Commando.Engine offers good tug. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb) But the decal on the tank felt like it will peel off sooner than later. And before I forget, our bike also had the issue of a leaky fuel tank cap! While we understand that the UM Commando is built to a price but we sincerely hope that UM Motorcycles look into the matter and production bikes are better finished than the one we got. It is mandatory!Neatly set radiator. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb)The key fob sits atop the handlebar T. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb) The Commando is powered by a 279.5cc, 4-stroke single which churns out 24.8bhp and 21.8Nm of torque. Considering all this the Commando will face stiff competition from the Mahindra Mojo and the Royal Enfield Himalayan. That’s quite a task in itself. The engine starts up on a meaty note and that I like. The gears shifted with a bit of notchiness and the Commando took off with quite a bit of grunt. The accompanying rorty note from the engine along with the exhaust adds to the overall aura of gaining momentum. The tug from the engine continues till one hits the 100kmph mark after which it starts feeling stressed.280mm discs up front offer good bite. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb)ALSO READ: The Hero Splendor iSmart 110 is a smart commuterHowever we did see the speedo go by 130kmph and that is a respectable figure and comparable to the competition. But at this speed vibrations creep up which does not feel right. However if you are one of those who are happy to cruise around at 80 to 90kmph all day long, the Commando will keep you rather happy. But the only cause of concern is the fact that this engine is not exactly an all-American one! It is actually one sourced from China and this also means that reliability has to be proved in India.There is little to doubt the fact that the Renegade Commando is quite a looker. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb)UM has loaded the Commando with features. One of them is the USB charging slot mounted on the instrument panel. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb) Now moving onto the ride and handling department. The Commando comes with a relatively long wheelbase. It also sports 41mm telescopic forks up front and a conventional twin shock set up at the back. On the move the suspension did a good job of soaking up the bumps and especially those nasty potholes which monsoon throws up. However dug deeper the suspension does stick it up your spine. Being a cruiser the Commando demonstrates good straight line abilities. But in true American spirit, it does not like corners much.Large tail lamps mounted on a big fender adds to the visual. The big mudguards also work well to keep water away. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb)Last but not the least, the Command does stop rather well. The front 280mm discs work well and offers ample bite. This is also aided by the 130mm drums at the back. However in absence of ABS, the rear tyre locks up rather quickly. advertisementIt also has a lot of street presence. (Photo: Nishant Jhamb)ALSO READ:Honda CB Shine tested in peak trafficVerdictThe Renegade Commando will be made in India. The Commando looks the part and on paper it is very competitive as well. The engine offers good performance and at the same time the bike is priced competitively.  However what we did not like much is the fact that attention to detail is missing. The quality of plastics and rubber parts need to improve soon to ensure that these bikes are competitive in the market.last_img read more

first_imgMilan: Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence through injury could give Moise Kean the chance to shine with Juventus after the teenager’s stunning breakthrough with Italy during the international break. Ronaldo looks set to miss the champions next three Serie A games, against Empoli on Saturday, Cagliari on April 2, and AC Milan four days later after picking up a right thigh injury playing for Portugal. The 34-year-old was rested by Juventus in their last Serie A game, after his hat-trick against Atletico Madrid sealed a place in the Champions League quarter-finals against Ajax.

Juventus are still closing in on an eighth consecutive Scudetto with a 15-point gap on second-placed Napoli. And Kean will be hoping to get a chance to showcase his talents for their first game at home against Empoli since their dramatic victory over Atletico in the Allianz Stadium. The 19-year-old won his first cap for Italy in a friendly last November, but it was his second appearance for the former world champions that has brought him into the spotlight.

Being in a star-studded squad alongside five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo means that Kean’s opportunities of regular action have been limited. But ahead of Juventus’ return leg against Atletico, Allegri handed Kean his first Serie A start of the season against Udinese and the forward seized his rare opportunity with a brace. “I always try to be ready and train regularly so that I’m prepared when the time comes,” Kean said.last_img read more

In his latest report to the Security Council, the Secretary-General says that the Assembly election on 17 November 2001 was an important step forward in the implementation of the Council’s 1999 resolution on Kosovo, which created a UN administrative authority that would gradually hand over control of the province to provisional institutions of self-government.With the electorate giving no single party a majority, political forces have been compelled to work together to overcome the legacy of the past and contribute to the building of a common future. “The time it is taking to elect a President and form a Government is an indication of the difficulties that will have to be overcome,” Mr. Annan observes.Saying security remained a paramount concern, the Secretary-General calls on all Assembly members to lead by example in creating conditions conducive to improving inter-communal relations and promoting reconciliation.”Reconciliation must begin in the Assembly, as members of all communities work side by side to improve the situation of all the people of Kosovo,” Mr. Annan stresses.The Secretary-General also pays tribute to his Special Representative in Kosovo, Hans Haekkerup, “for his steady leadership during a period that has seen significant progress, and to the men and women of UNMIK for their wonderful work in difficult circumstances.”Mr. Annan says that he will be writing to the Security Council about the successor to Mr. Haekkerup, who decided for personal reasons not to continue in his post.The Council has scheduled a public meeting on 21 January to discuss Kosovo. read more

Amy Oliver knew she wanted to go to Brock University, but getting a head start on research cemented that decision.The 17-year-old Ridgeway-Crystal Beach High School student presented research on the health benefits of taking Vitamin E Thursday during the 20th annual Brock Mentorship Program Symposium. Some of the top high school students in Niagara showed off the research they’ve been working on since September under the guidance of Brock faculty and staff members.“Having the experience before coming to the University has been awesome. I know my way around and there are state-of-the-art labs. I feel really good about coming here now,” said Oliver, who will start at Brock in September. “It solidified my decision.”This year’s Mentorship Symposium saw 21 local high school students from both DSBN and NCDSB present their projects Thursday.Since its inception, the program has seen more than 300 students from 20 Niagara high schools participate. Over the years, 80 Brock faculty members and staff have volunteered as mentors to provide the students with the opportunity to experience real-life research.St. Michael High School classmates Matthan Condez and Holly Galinec, who have both been offered acceptance letters by Brock, worked together to design a system that uses a webcam to detect distracted driving. They were mentored by Tom MacDonald, who works in Brock’s electronics shop.“We started from scratch and we had to brainstorm our own project,” Condez said. “We had to teach ourselves the coding and then pull what we both knew into one project.”Galinec said the research project whet her appetite for university research.“I got a taste for university life and explored what I’m into. I had no prior experience coding, but now that I’ve done it, I quite like it,” she said.This year’s group of students were all high-achieving Grade 12 students who were accepted based on their applications to the program. The study disciplines covered the entire spectrum of Math & Science (MATH, BIOL, CHEM, NEURO, Robotics, PHYS) and included Health Sciences and Kinesiology, as well.The program gave the students the opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty or staff in the related field. Some were paired up with Master’s students and worked in their labs, others conducted surveys and did statistical analysis on data.“The students are exceptionally talented this year,” said Brock University Associate Professor Joe Engemann, who has been running the mentorship program since its inception. “High school is excellent, but it doesn’t really teach them how science is conducted in the real world. They come here and they’re amazingly quick studies. They understand the research techniques and they do amazing work.” read more

This came to just over £37,000 of the total £62,000 costs. The remaining amount, which comes to just under £25,000 will come out of the council coffers.Judge George criticised both parties for not being able to settle their differences and costing taxpayers, what she called, an ‘inordinate amount of public money’. Neighbours who waged a three-year war against each other over a pond for koi carp decorated with plastic herons and a Saudi flag have cost the taxpayer almost £25,000 in legal costsCredit: Martin Pope/ Martin Pope The council tried to end the war by asking the couples to sign voluntary Acceptable Behaviour Contracts, but the Abdel-Khaleks refused, leading the council to take out a civil injunction against them.After several county court hearings, the case ended up at the High Court of Justice in Birmingham last week.The court stated that the Brewsters “harboured irrational thoughts about the significance of the display of the Saudi Arabian flag” – which they complained to the council about 11 times.In the ruling, Judge Jane George stated that the distress caused by the objects was down to the Brewsters’ own “irrational and in some respects frankly bizarre interpretation of what things meant.”In her report she called the reaction from the Brewsters “extraordinary” and added: “No alarm, distress or harassment can be caused to a reasonable person by seeing a country’s flag hanging from a tree in a neighbour’s garden”.The court ruled that an injunction should be enforced against the Abdel-Khaleks to stop them from hanging items in their garden “in plain sight of the Brewsters property”, but said that they should “not be prevented from hanging items over the pond” should they wish to do so.As a result of the case, Mr and Mrs Abdel-Khalek were ordered to pay 60 percent of the council’s legal costs. In their complaints, the Brewsters said the “items hanging from trees” were “offensive”, telling police and council workers the items were put up “deliberately to cause them alarm and distress”. They also said the items were designed to “intimidate them” and made reference in emails to the council and police that accused Mr and Mrs Abdel-Khalek of being “extremists” – despite the police telling them the Saudi flag was the “national flag of a sovereign country”. Neighbours who waged a three-year war against each other over a pond for koi carp have cost the taxpayer almost £25,000 in legal costs.Dr Mohamed Abdel-Khalek, a 67-year-old retired eye surgeon, and his wife Aila, a 42-year-old clinical engineer, installed a 20ft-long pond in their garden in 2015 prompting complaints from neighbours Philip and Jennifer Brewster.Mr Brewster, a 70-year-old solicitor who specialises in land development and commercial property, and his wife Jennifer, 69, complained that the noise from the pond’s pump was “loud and continuous” and claimed it caused “water leakages” into their property.The Brewsters also complained to the council about Mr Abdel-Khalek hanging plastic herons, a small plastic Santa and a Saudi flag in a tree above his pond.Mr Abdel-Khalek said the objects were put there to protect his koi carp from predatory birds.

first_imgMineWare, is collaborating with CRCMining and the University of Queensland on an 18-month ACARP (the Australian black coal industry’s research program) project set to advance dragline operations one step closer to automation. Funded by an ACARP grant of more than A$600,000—as well as in-kind support from MineWare and CRCMining—the joint project focuses on developing and implementing a new dig sequencing technology that aims to identify the best sequence of operations and movements for a dragline to excavate in the most efficient and productive way.The technology will give operators instantaneous position, digging and dumping guidance, supporting them to make critical decisions around the sequencing of excavation.MineWare CEO and project co-leader Andrew Jessett said that dragline operations will benefit from a significant improvement in productivity. “On draglines around the world, we continue to see inconsistencies in operator sequences and techniques, which can result in variations in productivity rates in excess of 10%,” he said. “By giving dragline operators accurate, instant guidance, we want to close the gap on these variations and improve productivity as a direct result.”Jessett believes the time is right for industry to revisit the historic problem of dragline automation, capitalising on the readiness of new and emerging technologies. He said the project represents a logical stepping stone towards the realisation of an automated dragline system—one that can bring an immediate benefit to open-pit mining globally. He has been nominated for the 2014 International Mining Technology Hall of Fame inductions in the Surface Load and Haul category.“This project builds upon more than 20 years of initiatives aimed at improving the performance of draglines,” he said. “While the dream of an automated dragline system is still many, many years away, we’re ready to take another big step, harnessing new digital terrain mapping technology and our Pegasys Dragline Production Monitor to semi-automate key dragline dumping and positioning functions.”Forming part of a broader roadmap towards improving dragline performance through automation, the project is split into two major stages. Stage one involves the design of a dragline excavation sequencing system, underpinned by a sophisticated algorithmic approach relevant to all dragline operations worldwide.Stage two will trial the algorithm on a fully operational production dragline, integrated into MineWare’s Pegasys Dragline Monitoring system. During this stage, operator visualisation and supervisor report tools will be developed to analyse operator-based sequencing of excavation against the sequencing algorithm.The project’s immediate benefit to industry will be the development of the operator assistance technology targeting four key areas—minimising average cycle and positioning time while digging; increasing compliance to final pit geometry; reducing rework and rehandling of material, and pre-warning against potential pit issues such as spoil bound scenarios.A further future benefit will be the development of automation technologies that build naturally off the excavation sequencing information provided by the operator assistance technology.Additional benefits for mining companies include an increase in coal uncover rates; improved safety by avoiding leaving high/low walls in danger of slumping and reducing the need for surveyors in the pit; increased operational reliability and consistency, and lower duty cycling.Clarifying the role and importance of dig sequence technology in dragline automation, Jessett said that correct operator decision making is one of the most critical influencers of dragline performance. “There is a direct link between operator performance and dragline productivity, particularly when it comes to excavation planning,” he said.“Only the very best dragline operators are well skilled in this area; they need to know when to reposition a dragline, what the optimal sequence of moves is to dig a block and how the dragline should move to get there. The answers to these questions lie at the very heart of dragline efficiency and productivity. By creating a system that allows us to get dig sequencing right everytime, we will have made a significant step forward towards automation.”Attracting widespread support and interest from mining industry leaders and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), the project builds upon the work of several previous ACARP projects and research undertaken by CRCMining on tactical mission planning for mining excavators.ACARP’s Open Cut Committee has appointed senior representatives from four of the world’s largest coal mining companies as ‘Industry Monitors’ for the project.The success of the project will be judged on the physical uptake of automation technologies across mines as project partners use research outcomes for commercial development on draglines worldwide.Looking ahead, Jessett said that the natural extension of this project is for the optimal sequencing information to build on previous research on swing automation systems that, in the first instance, automate the swing, dump, and return motions of the dragline.“By combining optimal sequencing and automated motion, we can deliver key improvements to machine productivity in two major areas,” he said. “Firstly, we’ll be able to deliver production rates that match best practice in manual operation; and secondly, we will reduce maintenance downtime by ensuring smooth control actions.”last_img read more

He has created a new project,, to explore the nature and psychology of heroism.A study published in Psychological Science journal last year researched the ‘flight-or-fight’ response to danger. It found that “having positive social interactions before being exposed to acute stress” encouraged people to behave in “more pro-social behaviour”; a “tend and befriend” situation, said the scientists. In other words, compassion can inspire acts of heroism towards your fellow humans.Zimbardo defines heroism as:The active attempt to address injustice or create positive change in the world despite pressures to do otherwise.It may involve coping effectively in unclear or emergency, situations, helping others in need, or may involve setting and achieving goals to promote the wellbeing of others.last_img read more

first_imgCHINA’S FIFTH MOST-POWERFUL man is in Ireland. The visit of Liu Yunshan, a senior member of the Politburo Standing Committee (PSC), the most central body within the Communist Party of China, is a concrete sign of a deepening relationship between Ireland and the country whose economy is the world’s second biggest. The rise of China will significantly shape the way that Irish business leaders, politicians and diplomats engage with the world.For a start, the arrival of Liu suggests that the optimism surrounding the visit of then Vice-President Xi Jinping (now China’s premiere) to Ireland in February 2012 was justified. China sees Ireland as a key partner in Europe, and wants to develop the relationship between our two nations. Each year since 2010, a top-ranking Chinese official has visited Ireland, and Liu is following in the footsteps not only of now-President Xi, but of a Vice-Premier, a Mayor of Beijing, and of his own predecessor on the PSC.In addition, since 2011 nearly 30 Chinese ministers or vice-ministers have visited Ireland, and Liu himself is accompanied by four ministers in a delegation of 51 officials. Clearly, the CPC (Communist Party of China) leadership considers a strengthening of the ties between the two nations to be of benefit for China.The growth of the Ireland-China relationshipSo what does the CPC hope to achieve through the growth of the Ireland-China relationship? Even by the standards of the last four decades, China is now in a period of great change. The cornerstone of President Xi’s leadership has been his policy of the “Chinese Dream”, a catch-all slogan with such mass appeal that it would not be out of place on an Irish election leaflet.With the Chinese Dream, President Xi is essentially offering his citizens the opportunity to have a “moderately prosperous society”, combining a growing economy with a genuine improvement in the quality of life. To achieve this, the CPC will have to develop the economic potential of so-called Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, such as Hefei or Datong, beyond the coastal metropolises which have until now been the engine of growth, like Shanghai or Shenzhen. Many of these targeted cities lie in predominantly agricultural provinces, and to truly contribute to China’s economy they will have to leapfrog industrialisation, and transform directly into modern, services-led economies.There are very few economies that have achieved this transition, with many Chinese analysts believing Ireland is a successful example. This is one of the reasons why now-President Xi Jinping included the Shannon Free Zone on his itinerary during his February 2012 visit.Attracting clients from China’s financial sectorSuch enthusiasm for Ireland among policymakers in Beijing is being encouraged by an ever-deepening engagement with China by the Irish state. In February 2014, before returning home, the previous Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Ireland, Luo Linquan, noted that nearly two-thirds of the Irish Cabinet had visited China during his time in Dublin. The Department of Foreign Affairs plans to open a full Consulate-General in Hong Kong in the autumn. The IDA recently opened a new office in Beijing which has a special focus on attracting clients from China’s financial sector to Ireland, and the agency plans to increase the workforce at its Shanghai office. With the two-way trade between the nations rising by 13.2% in 2013 to more than €4.9 billion, the economic elements of the Ireland-China bilateral relationship are clear.But the continuing rise of China also offers new opportunities for Ireland on the international stage, through the medium of multilateral organisations, that are not always recognised, but if pursued would develop the relationship between the two nations yet further. The most obvious example of this is in relation to China’s ties with the European Union. China and the EU are important economic partners, with bilateral trade in goods and services reaching €478 billion in 2013. But this relationship is set to grow further and Ireland has a number of natural advantages for positioning itself as China’s partner of choice within the EU.Learning EnglishAs an English-speaking nation in the Eurozone, Ireland could be a natural partner for China, where an estimated 300 million people are learning English. Our history of being on the receiving end of imperialism means our relationship with China is free of historical baggage. The key economic strengths of our economy lie in sectors, such as agrifood and digital, where China is trying to increase it capabilities and looking for partners who are unhindered by geostrategic concerns.Ireland’s potential as a partner for China in the realm of multilateral organisations stretches beyond the EU. Many people do not realise that China is a major contributor of troops to the United Nations, and indeed is providing more troops now than the other four permanent members of the Security Council combined. This engagement with the UN is set to increase, but the Chinese are still adapting to the demands of UN peacekeeping. This is an area where Ireland has obvious expertise, and where we can assist China to become a responsible global security actor.The name of Liu Yunshan may not have meant much to most Irish people before this weekend. But his arrival is concrete proof that the efforts being made by Irish diplomats, business and political leaders are bearing fruit, and that Ireland is already proving effective at navigating the challenges and opportunities of the Pacific century.

first_imgThe launch of Diablo III at the stroke of midnight last night was a mix of excitement and frustration for gamers. Blizzard had catered for gamers wanting to buy digitally or boxed copies of the game, and they even offered a way to play it for free. What they couldn’t do is cope with the server load, leaving many stuck at the login screen.One gamer managed to login and start playing though, and he has already completed the game. Total playthrough time? 12 hours and 29 minutes.The player in question goes by the handle Yoshichan. He played the game on Normal difficulty and completed it with a level 32 Barbarian. The proof was posted on NeoGAF in the form of the screen grabs you see here.It may seem like he managed to finish the game in a very short space of time, but that is clearly a speed run through the game and it STILL took him over 12 hours to complete. For any normal playthrough, where you actually take time to enjoy and explore the world of Diablo III in its entirety, you can probably multiply that time at least by a factor of three, maybe more.It’s also worth considering this isn’t a game you will play through just once and see everything.

least that is what looks possible and is the only time window when Prime Minister Narendra Modi could hold this exercise if this has to be done now on priority Suresh Prabhu’s exit from the Ministry of Railways and entry of a new defence minister could be the big news of that day File image of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah AFP Friday evening is the only time in next few days before the beginning of a fortnight-long ‘Pitri or Pitru Paksha’ (period for religious offering to departed elders) which is considered inauspicious by Hindus when President Ramnath Kovind Modi and BJP president Amit Shah would be in the national Capital While there had been no two views in the ruling BJP circle and the political leadership in the government about the need for a last cabinet reshuffle of the Modi government the big question was about timing and nobody the howsoever senior had a real idea as to when Modi (in consultation with Shah) would actually do it The turn of events in the last few days have heightened speculations and Firstpost gathered from senior leaders in the party and the government that Cabinet reshuffle was now imminent in next few days President Ram Nath Kovind is out of the capital on 1 September He is going to Tirupati where besides worshipping Lord Venkateswara at Tirumala he would be attending some other programmes organised by Andhra Pradesh government including those meant for the welfare of Scheduled Caste communities He will be returning to New Delhi on Friday afternoon Shah will also be away from Delhi during this period to attend BJP ideological fountainhead RSS’s conclave in Vrindavan He would be accompanied by BJP general secretary (organisation) Ram Lal Home minister Rajnath Singh too could be there to attend the meet They all could return to Delhi by the afternoon of 2 September This date and time have become important because Modi will be leaving for BRICS Summit in China on 3 September The BRICS Summit is scheduled for 3-5 September From China the prime minister will go to Myanmar and then return to Delhi on 7 August Kovind too will leave Delhi on 3 September for a two-day trip to Gujarat By the time Modi would return to Delhi "Pitru Paksha" would have begun It is assumed that during this period an exercise like cabinet reshuffle wouldn’t take place This effectively means that the idea of cabinet reshuffle would be postponed for some time possibly for a month till the conclusion of Dussehra and Muharram A section of BJP leaders thus are optimistic about 2 September And they have a reason for that Modi had undertaken the last cabinet reshuffle-cum-expansion on 5 July 2016 and he had left for a five-day foreign tour to Mozambique South Africa Tanzania and Kenya Will Modi follow a similar schedule now ie complete a cabinet reshuffle and then leave for a foreign tour One would know the answer in the next two days An NDTV report said that while responding to queries from reporters on his tenure as defence minister finance minister Arun Jaitley had quipped: "At least I hope not very long" There are some clear vacancies in the government: finance minsiter Arun Jaitley has additional charge of defence ministry science and technology minister Harshvardhan has the additional charge of forest and environment rural development and Panchayati raj minister Narendra Singh Tomar is also looking after urban affairs and textile minister Smriti Irani has additional charge of the information and broadcasting ministry The question in everyone’s mind is who would Modi pick to head the defence ministry The party has limited talent pool something which was exemplified in the later part of 2014 when Modi had made Manohar Parrikar move to Delhi from Goa and inducted Suresh Prabhu from outside of BJP’s bench strength for the railways Prabhu’s exit from the railway ministry is certain The question is who would be given charge of the railway ministry to fulfil Modi’s dream It is ironic that the replacements for both Parrikar and Prabhu would have to be taken together in the last cabinet expansion just as they were inducted together in first cabinet expansion in November 2014 Modi has another 18 months to deliver before the 2019 General Elections to Lok Sabha begins He thus needs to weed out the dead wood from the government and infuse new blood in the cabinet The PMO has undertaken a performance review of ministers This cabinet reshuffle could be an occasion for Modi to give a message to the nation that he cares for performance and merit Whispers in the power corridors suggest that the two top leaders have also accessed information collected by various wings on individual ministers’ personal conduct in office and outside And that could spell trouble for some Recently Modi had warned his ministers in clear words to stay away from the growing tendency to stay in a five-star hotel during their official tours and availing other perks of power extended to them by PSUs Nitish Kumar’s return to NDA would mean that JD(U) will get a representation in the government JD(U) Rajya Sabha MP RCP Sinha a close confidant of Nitish is almost sure to be inducted into the Cabinet AIADMK too could become part of Modi government Shah has finished his 100 days tour around the country And now he has a fair idea of whether there’s pro or anti-incumbency against individual chief ministers and ministers from the state at the centre In the last few days he has met over half a dozen ministers at his Delhi residence and there have been a lot of speculations about what would it mean for ministers who were called for one-to-one meetings He may go for an organisational overhaul by inducting some ministers in the organisation to work for his new 350-seat target for 2019 Then there are seven vacancies in Raj Bhawans and they need to be filled up and several senior leaders are looking up to that However Thursday’s appointment of Mahendra Nath Pandey minister

a year ago (March 2016) true core inflation was 51 per cent Many analysts have called the RBI’s bluff on “core inflation” This may be one reason why the MPC has now turned to a discussion of the following (changing of goalposts in the game of elevator economics): In the latest MPC minutes Governor Patel concludes (along with MPC members Patra Ghate and Dua) that “CPI inflation excluding food and fuel remained sticky especially services” Let us see how the RBI performs with respect to documentation of past inflation data — a simpler exercise than a forecast Very poorly but you be the judge The table documents the weight and CPI inflation for the six most important categories of service inflation Data are presented for three months: March 2017 March 2016 and the month prior to demonetisation October 2016 The six categories are combined in a weighted fashion to yield a composite service inflation with a weight of 343 per cent in the total CPI Far from being sticky each component of service inflation shows a large year-on-year (y-o-y) decline ranging between 130 basis points (health) and 30 basis points (housing) The weighted average decline is 80 basis points Further the level of service inflation in March 2017 (41 per cent) is within kissing distance of the 4 per cent target of headline inflation of the MPC But there is some really good news about the MPC — dissent has finally reached its shores Ravindra Dholakia openly disagrees with the other MPC members on the trend in future inflation Dissent is very difficult in the Indian bureaucracy — the fact that it has happened means that MPC future policy decisions will be considerably more balanced and informed The writer is contributing editor ‘The Indian Express’ and senior India analyst at Observatory Group a New York-based macro policy advisory group Views are personal For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: October 18 2016 4:26 pm According to police Santhosh (25) attacked Kumari (50) because of an old rivalry between him and her father Top News A goon was caught on camera attacking a woman with a sword in Karnataka’s Kolar Temple recently The entire incident was captured on the CCTV camera deployed in the temple In a video that has gone viral the man is seen attacking woman as she attempts to ward off his blows Reports saythe man has been arrested on charges of attempt to murder According to police Santhosh (25) attacked Kumari (50) because of an old rivalry between him and her father Kumar is undergoing treatment at a local hospital More details awaited For all the latest India News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by PTI | Namakkal | Published: May 13 2013 12:53 pm Related News A 30-year old woman and her mother were injured seriously when the former’s husband attacked them with a blade at Pudupatty village in the districtpolice said today The womana mother of twohad come to her mother’s place unable to bear the alleged beating by her husband Sadhasivam Last nightthe man had come to take her back when she refused Angered over thishe took out a blade and cut her throatRasipuram DSP Rajan said When his mother-in-law came to the rescue of her daughterSadhasivam attacked her also Both the women suffered bleeding injuries and had been admitted to Rasipuram Government hospital in serious condition The man had been arrestedRajan added For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related News yet an area where the MPC has performed badly.We are trying to formulate a tax that will dissuade people from wasting water but nothing has been decided right now, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshitalso chairperson of the Delhi Jal Boardsaid She confirmed that the tax structure will be decided in the board meeting. she would sail through if she can engineer a shift of the Muslim votes and the most backward classes (MBCs) in BSP’s favour. but just 35% of those with fully intact wings, as he leafed through an album of family photographs. “We wanted to add layers to the story, For all the latest Entertainment News, The fingerprint scanner is under the two lenses with the flash tucked in between.
