first_img John Menzies sees profit treble NEWSPAPER distributor John Menzies saw half-year profits almost treble.It made £20.6m compared with £7.4m for the same period last year.The company, which also distributes airport cargo worldwide, was boosted by new contracts with Lufthansa/bmi at London Heathrow. John Menzies started in Scotland in 1833 but is now a “time-critical logistics company” – a business that moves goods to a timetable.Menzies said distribution remained a difficult market, but it had been helped by the sale of stickers for the 2010 World Cup.

Last month, the KSA set out new anti-money laundering and duty of care guidelines for operators that are issued with licences.The regulator has also proposed a rule requiring prospective igaming licensees to have not operated in the market for two years before they are permitted to launch in the regulated market.In addition, the KSA has issued a series of fine to operators it has found to have been offering online gambling services. Casumo, Mansion Group’s, 1xBet, William Hill and MRG are among those to have been sanctioned in recent months.

first_img Royston Wild | Thursday, 4th March, 2021 Investing in UK shares always carries a degree of risk. And as the pandemic rolls on the dangers for many British stocks are more elevated than usual. New Covid-19 cases are still emerging across the globe as dangerous virus variants spread. There is also the threat of rising inflation to think about and what impact this could have on the global economy.Investors should certainly never buy UK shares using money they can’t afford to lose. But I for one plan to invest in British stocks for the new bull market. I build my Stocks and Shares ISA with companies I think will deliver decent shareholder returns beyond the short-to-medium term. And I think there are many top stocks that will have the strength to weather, or perhaps even thrive, during a bumpy economic recovery.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…The UK share price fightbackI’m a firm believer in buying UK shares after stock market crashes. My faith is built on quite solid foundations too, I think. Let’s look at the FTSE 100’s performance in the wake of the global banking crisis during the 2000s. The blue chip index soared 124% in value from the troughs of 3,512 points it hit during the 2008/2009 crisis to the all-time highs of 7,877 points struck in spring 2018.Global stock markets rose strongly as economic conditions improved, corporate profits rebounded, and investor confidence flowed back into financial markets. They also leapt thanks to the massive support provided by central banks and governments. Additional rate cutting and stimulus packages launched during the current economic crisis bodes well for stock prices during this new bull market, too.Wise words from Warren BuffettOf course past performance is no indication of future returns. As I say, a prolonged public health emergency and rising inflation could hamper the scale of the economic recovery. Other macroeconomic problems like trade wars, Brexit, and escalating sovereign debt levels could hit UK share investor returns during the 2020s as well.So far, though, stock markets have risen to overcome severe social, economic, and political challenges and deliver big returns. As investment guru Warren Buffett famously opined, “in the 20th century, the United States endured two world wars and other traumatic and expensive military conflicts; the Depression; a dozen or so recessions and financial panics; oil shocks; a flu epidemic; and the resignation of a disgraced president. Yet the Dow rose from 66 to 11,497.”Once again, I fully expect UK shares to rise strongly following the 2020 stock market crash. Its why I’ve kept investing in my Stocks and Shares ISA since last year’s market correction. I bought Coca-Cola HBC as I think that, despite intense competition, that sales should boom as broader consumer spending levels recover. I bought Games Workshop too as international expansion could deliver excellent long-term returns in spite of the growth of illegal 3D model printing. And there are many other top UK shares I’m looking at today.

first_imgMonday Feb 3, 2020 Ridiculous ‘rucking conga’ still at large and with no sign of being eradicated from the game One thing that is slowly creeping its way back into the game of rugby is the use of ladder rucking before a box kick.ADVERTISEMENTThis was something that grew increasingly prevalent in recent years, where the team in possession would form a train of players leading back from the ruck to create a greater distance between the scrumhalf and the opposition defence in order to make a box kick easier.Saracens were the main exponents of this rucking conga, and World Rugby subsequently introduced the five second law at the base of the ruck to counteract this problem. The law states: “When the ball has been clearly won by a team at the ruck, and is available to be played, the referee calls “use it”, after which the ball must be played away from the ruck within five seconds.”57:55 – Ref calls “tackle”57:57 – Quins stop contesting & detach58:01 – ball available as SH rolls it with the foot58:04 – Ref says “use it”58:09 – Scrum Half picks up ballThe SH waits the full, legal, 5 seconds, but why does the ref not call “use it” at 58:01?— AJ Thomas (@zzypt) February 3, 2020However, this law is so seldom enforced by referees that the tactic has worked its way back into the game again. Often the words “use it” are heard, but very rarely is there any punishment if nothing happens within the next five seconds.This time round, Exeter Chiefs are the ones who are often associated with this conga, shown no clearer than in their recent Premiership Rugby Cup match against Harlequins. In this match, a train of five players were used, which brings the ball almost five metres back from where the ball carrier went to ground.Is this real?— David Flatman (@davidflatman) February 3, 2020ADVERTISEMENTIt is hard to see how a team could ever set this up in the five seconds that they theoretically have once the ball is playable to the scrumhalf.Has he got the length in his kick to get over the ruck?— Nathan Sharpe (@NathanSharpe5) February 3, 2020Ultimately, if teams are able to get away with it, they will, as it creates a safe situation for a team to clear the ball without the threat of being charged down. It does equally slow the game down, and create far fewer opportunities for defences to compete, which does affect the sport as a product.The easiest way to combat such a problem is for referees to adhere to the laws which were originally created to combat this very problem.This tweet from late last year shows the exact same thing in action.The sooner this ludicrous loop hole gets taken out of the game the better. Looks ridiculous. @premrugby @btsportrugby— 𝘾𝙝𝙧𝙞𝙨 𝘾𝙡𝙖𝙧𝙠𝙨𝙤𝙣 (@MrChrisClarkson) November 3, 2019ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

In his first stop on the way home, Ulysses reaches the cave of the Cyclops, a fierce and strong builder who looked through one single point. And there he is locked up until he uses his ingenuity to escape and goes where the winds take him.Save this picture!DiagramSave this picture!Courtesy of Ensamble StudioSave this picture!DiagramCyclopean House is built, using the vigor of the builder, and the ingenuity of the engineer, to start a journey from the place of its manufacture –Madrid- to the place where it can definitely lie -on top of an existing garage, the ugly duckling of the area, located in a calm residential neighborhood of Brookline. The one-story gloomy construction accommodates the parking, workshop and service spaces, following its basic structural logic, and is completed with the big room built on it by the assembly of the large prefabricated elements that rest after their long transatlantic voyage. This open-plan double-height living area includes the main domestic activities and enables the transformation of the residual building into a two-story residential unit, technologically and spatially adapted to its time and the life of its users.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ensamble StudioThe new architecture concentrates structure and infrastructure in the perimeter: seven beams –of monumental scale- which specialize in one action each -cooking & bathing, storing, seating, dining, sleeping, working, projecting-. The rest of the plan is then cleared to be shared by different events succeeding in time and functions have the option to expand into the central space as needed deciding its temporary layout. The seven programmatic beams configure a thick enclosure that minimizes visual contact with the exterior on the three sides that adjoin neighbor houses and creates a big opening on the street side where the interior space can look at the trees in front and imagine itself in the midst of a park. Complementing this one eye, as beams assemble together embracing space, they lose their mass in the points of contact where flanges touch and the web recesses to provide additional light and ventilation to specific functions. Privacy and thermal insulation is thus guaranteed while maximizing light and view.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ensamble StudioSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Ensamble StudioSave this picture!First Floor PlanTo avoid overloading the preexisting structure or having to dig new foundations, ultra-light construction systems give form to the new elements: solid cores made of foam -98% air- reinforced by steel profiles and fire-proofed by a thin layer of cement & fibers. Dry joints and material lightness enable the different elements to be produced out of site –including finishes and fixtures- easily transported by ship and regular trucks and quickly placed together following a rhythmic sequence -carefully planned beforehand.Unlike the heavy, cold stone that prevented Ulysses from leaving the cave, Cyclopean House is light and warm, light due its lack of mass, and due to its air coat. It sits and watches without being seen, interlacing its elements after the trip.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ensamble StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessThese Images of Abandoned Insane Asylums Show Architecture That Was Designed to HealArchitecture NewsA+U 542 15:11 RCR Arquitectes – JourneyArchitecture Books Share Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Year:  Area:  240 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects Save this picture!Courtesy of Ensamble Studio+ 43 Share ArchDaily Cyclopean House / Ensamble Studio Housescenter_img Architects: ENSAMBLE STUDIO Area Area of this architecture project 2015 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses•Brookline, United States “COPY” General Contractor: United States Ensamble Fábrica Manufacturers: Euronit, LERMONT PLASTICS, PERFILES MADRID, SUNDOLITT CopyAbout this officeENSAMBLE STUDIOOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrooklineUnited StatesPublished on March 08, 2017Cite: “Cyclopean House / Ensamble Studio” 08 Mar 2017.

This is a house with warm interior-core sheltered by a white concrete “hood” with trapezoidal niches that frame the outside views. It is called Viewpoint House designed by Jim Caumeron Design. Located in a dense subdivision in Quezon City, Philippines. the L-shaped lot called for an L-shaped plan to fit the hefty 400 square meter client’s space requirements. The property’s east and back side has no views because it is blocked by a fence-wall owned by neighbors. The west side on the other hand exposes the lot to the heat of the afternoon sun. This side also fronts the street access and a small community park that can pose an issue on privacy if the living areas were to face west.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Bien AlvarezJim Caumeron proposed to highlight the view of the park by providing a huge picture window at the corner of the house. This serves as the “mother” window, raised above a standard human height to lessen the visibility of the living room from the street. When one is lounging in the living area, they can look up to the big window with the view of the crown of the tree.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezThe entrance hallway and stairs were located on the west side with a ribbon window facing the street and the park. Above it is a wall of small punctured windows with a profile section-detail that is slanted to keep the rainwater out while still allowing natural air to seep through it. This wall blocks the sun’s heat in the afternoon but at the same time allows the stair atrium to breathe.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezThe setback was kept open as small private open areas of the dining room and the guests’ room at the ground floor. The garage adjacent to the living areas is transformable into an extended party area, highlighted by a square frosted glass door from the living room. It is typical for Filipinos during fiestas, christening, house blessings etc. to welcome everyone in the community to feast. Normally, the garage area where a big table can be set up is the best space for it to keep the main living and dining areas private and indirectly exclusive to family and close friends.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Bien AlvarezAt the second floor, two hallway windows are located on both ends for light and cross- ventilation. The hallway has a flank of doors that are recessed on the wall echoing the profile of the window viewports. Behind these recessed spaces are storage and closet spaces. One of these doors is the library with customized tables, lamps and bookshelves. The space was meant to be fully-airconditioned but the architect insisted to make the picture window along the hallway to be openable.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezThere are also small random windows on the opposite side of the library with few of them that are operable. The window frames were customized wooden casements with magnets for closing. The small windows reflect the punctured windows of the west façade and becomes a backdrop of the library interior when looking towards the hallway. A portion of the corridor is partly family room. When the air-condition is on, a pocket glass door can be pulled out from the wall making the hallway area part of the space.Save this picture!© Bien AlvarezThe owners’ local hardwood collection was used for the second floor and wood finishes that dictated the color scheme of the house. The architect imagined the wood finishes as the warming and comforting element in the interior. The geometric visual language of the exterior can also be seen on the ceiling  design and interior furnishings Jim Caumeron designed.Save this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!© Bien AlvarezThe “mother” window is also used as view portal by two interior windows – the family room and the masters’ bedroom at the second floor. Instead of having a boring blank wall opposite the masters’ bed, the architect provided a bay window seating that overlooks the living areas, family room and the view of the park. Same views can be enjoyed in the family room. This makes the tree at the corner of the park referenced as the viewpoint of the house. center_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Projects Area:  400 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  2020 Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeJim Caumeron DesignOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsQuezon CityOn FacebookPhilippinesPublished on November 24, 2020Cite: “Viewpoint House / Jim Caumeron Design” 23 Nov 2020.

first_img News Reporters Without Borders condemns blogger Ahmed Hassan Basiouny’s trial by court martial, which is scheduled to take place tomorrow, and calls for the immediate withdrawal of the charges against him. He is the second blogger to face a court martial in Egypt.Basiouny is being prosecuted for creating a Facebook page in 2009 that offered advice and information to young people thinking of enlisting in the Egyptian army. He is charged under articles 80 1/2 and 85/3 of the criminal code and article 5/B of the military justice code with disseminating defence secrets online and “disclosing information about the Egyptian armed forces.” Reporters Without Borders has learned that Basiouny was a recent guest on “Youth Panorama,” a programme broadcast live by the state-owned radio station Al-Shabah Wal-Reyada (Youth and Sport). He was asked to talk about the Facebook group he had created and was described by the station as “a good model for Egyptian youth.”It was a few days after his appearance on the programme that he was summoned for questioning by the military police bureau of investigation. He was then briefly detained until a decision was taken to try him before a military court.The first blogger to appear before a court martial was the young student Ahmed Abdel Fattah Mustafa. That was on 1 March, after he had been held incommunicado for several days for posting an article about a case of favouritism in a military academy on his blog Maza Asabak ya Watan (“What has happened to my country”) in 2009.Charged with defaming the Egyptian armed forces, “trying to undermine the public’s confidence in the armed forces” and publishing false information, he was release on 7 March after posting an apology on his blog (read the article).

The Court of Additional Sessions Judge MA Baraliya held, “The term private part is to be interpreted into the context what is meant by it in our society. Google might not be interpreting bums as private part as submitted by the ld. Advocate for the accused, but it is not acceptable interpretation as far as we Indians are concerned.” The Court was dealing with a criminal case filed by the father of a 10-years old girl, who had complained that a boy touched her bum while she was going towards the temple. Background It was the prosecution’s case that the victim and her friend were going towards the Temple when a boy wearing a black T-shirt, from a group of four boys sitting nearby, approached her and touched her private part. It was alleged that after this incident, all the boys started laughing and the victim rushed back to her home. It was claimed that the victim narrated the incident to her mother, who in turn called the victim’s father and told him that somebody had teased his daughter. Subsequently, the father rushed to home and took the victim to the spot where she pointed out the boy wearing black T-shirt. Thereafter, a FIR was lodged for commission of offences punishable under Sections 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 354A (sexual harassment) of IPC and under Section 10 (sexual assault) of the POCSO Act, and the22 -years old accused was apprehended the next day, allegedly wearing the same black T-shirt. Arguments The defence had denied all allegations and said that the accused had been falsely implicated in the case. The accused raised the following issues before the Court: Investigating Officer has failed to record the statement of eye witness, particularly the friend with whom the victim was going to the Temple. There was no attempt on the part of the Investigating Officer to record the statement of any of the friends of the accused who were with him. Test Identification Parade was not followed to prove that the accused was the same boy who touched the victim. Bum is not a private part as alleged by the victim.According to the victim’s father, he received a call of his wife who said that somebody had teased his daughter. There is much difference between “teasing” and “touching”. Findings Intention of committing sexual assault At the outset, the Court rejected the accused’ submissions that bum is not a private part. It held that the word private part has to interpreted in Indian context. It said, “Accused had touched her bums, the private part, obviously with the intention to sexually assault upon her…Accused by touching or patting on her, bums, has committed the act with full knowledge and intention to outrage her modesty and to assault her sexually.” In this context, the Court referred to the definition of ‘Sexual assault’ under Section 7 of the POCSO Act. the provision states: “Whoever, with sexual intent touches the vagina, penis, anus or breast of the child or makes the child touch the vagina, penis, anus or breast of such person or any other person, or does any other act with sexual intent which involves physical contact without penetration is said to commit sexual assault.” In the case at hand, the Bench noted that the accused had not touched either vagina, breast or anus of the girl, but had touched her bums. “The touching, as stated under Section 7 of the POCSO Act, 2012, if, is to the other organs, those categorized, then it must be with the sexual intention. So obviously touching bum of the girl cannot be said to be without sexual intention,” the Bench said. It added that the subsequent conduct of the accused and his friends, who were laughing at the victim, is also indicative of their state of mind. It said, “Past conduct of accused laughing at her and then touching her manifests that it was all with sexual intention, to grab the chance. Sexual intention is the state of mind, may not necessarily to be proved by direct evidence, such intention is to be inferred from the attending circumstances of the case.” The Bench also referred to the case of Kanwarpal Singh Gill (famously known as butt slapping case), whereby the then Director General of Police was convicted for slapping on the posterior of the prosecutrix, an IAS Officer, by the trial court. The said conviction was also confirmed by the Supreme Court in appeal. Drawing same analogy in the case at hand, the Bench said, “As the victim was child 10 years old on the date of incident, provision of POCSO Act attracts for the similar kind of his act touching the posterior of the victim. Thus the prosecution has succeeded in proving that the accused has committed the said act with sexual intention and outraged her modesty.” Touching bum is not mere teasing The Court rejected the accused’ contention that the alleged case was a mere teasing incident. It held, “The victim in her language said to her parents and before the police that accused had touched her private part. At the relevant time, she was hardly 10 years old. So she in her language expressed her ordeal. So there cannot be any confusion that she was not only teased but had been touched inappropriately by the accused.” So far as reference to the phone conversation between the victim’s parents is concerned, where her mother said that somebody had “teased” their daughter, the Court said, “The conduct of the father in rushing home immediately having received call itself shows that something more has happened with his daughter than teasing. It was telephonic conversation,so it is but natural that wife instead giving details,on phone, simply said that, their daughter had been teased. Avoiding to give details on phone does not mean that daughter was teased only without touching.” Victim cannot be made to pay cost of infirmities in investigation The accused had attempted to discredit the prosecution case by stating that (i) neither his friends nor the victim’s friend were examined (ii) there was no conclusive proof that he was the boy who touched victim’s bums. The Court held that non-examination of other eye-witnesses will not be fatal to the case. So far as the victim’s friend is concerned, the Court observed, “very few people like to involve in such incident even though incident has been seen by them. So merely for the reason that there are no eye witnesses to the incident and that the friend who was with the prosecutrix has not been examined, cannot be the reason to discard and disregard the testimony of the victim girl.” Inasmuch as the accused’ friends are concerned, the Court said, “it is not the case that none of the four boys teased the victim nor touched her inappropriately. One of the boy had certainly touched her inappropriately. The question is then who is the said boy. Had the said boy was other than the accused, accused must have come before the Court with certain name of his friend who was with him on the date of incident and responsible for touching inappropriately to victim.” Lastly, the Court said that it is satisfied that it is the accused who touched the victim inappropriately. It noted, “According to victim, the said particular boy was wearing black T-shirt. Victim has pointed the particular boy to her father wearing black T-shirt. It is a matter of record that the police didn’t recover the said black T-shirt from the accused to confirm his identity. To me, it is the set back in the investigation of the police and innocent victim is not supposed to pay its cost. As the accused was apprehended on the very next day and was shown to the victim’s father, accused is also seen in the same black T-shirt which he was wearing on the date of incident, so to me, the identity of the accused being the same boy has been established beyond reasonable doubt.” In view of the above, the accused was convicted for the offences of sexual assault and outraging modesty of a woman under relevant provisions of POCSO Act and IPC, and was sentenced to suffer rigorous imprisonment for five years.

first_imgTop StoriesBREAKING : Supreme Court Allows UP Panchayat Elections Counting To Take Place Tomorrow With COVID Safeguards Radhika Roy30 April 2021 11:47 PMShare This – xAfter a special sitting held on Saturday, the Supreme Court refused to defer the counting of the Uttar Pradesh Panchayat elections, scheduled to take place tomorrow, amid concerns about spread of COVID infection.A division bench comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and Hrishikesh Roy allowed the counting to take place tomorrow based on the “solemn assurances” given by the Uttar Pradesh State Election Commission that sufficient safeguards have been taken to ensure that COVID protocol is followed at counting centres.”We reject the request for deferring the counting by recording the submissions of the SEC that all protocols will be observed in letter and spirit”, the bench said in the order.Senior Advocate Aishwarya Bhati, appearing for the State Election Commission, told the bench that a Class 1 Officer of the state government will be assigned to monitor each of the 800 counting centres and will be held accountable for the counting centres. Also, senior IAS officers of the rank of Principal Secretary will be assigned to each district to oversee the adherence of COVID protocol.Bhati also told the bench that CCTV centres are installed in all counting centres, and that the footages will be preserved.The bench was also told that strict curfew will be imposed in areas that will be identified by the concerned authorities in and around counting centres to ensure that only authorised representatives will be able to visit counting centres.The SEC also told the bench that victory rallies by political parties will not be permitted throughout the state of UP. Candidates or their agents can enter the counting centres only if they have an RT-PCR negative result or certificate of having taken two doses of COVID vaccination.The bench recorded the assurances given by the State Election Commission.The bench was hearing a special leave petition challenging an order of the Allahabad High Court, passed on April 7, refusing to defer the local body elections and also a writ petition seeking to defer the counting tomorrow.Advocate Shoeb Alam, appearing for the petitioners, submitted that the counting-centres can turn out to be “beds of infections”. The bench was also told that several teachers, who have been assigned counting duty, have expressed apprehensions about performing the duty amid the COVID surge. Alam also told the bench that many teachers who attended the election duty have later succumbed to COVID, and the Allahabad High Court has taken cognizance of the same.The bench said that it was not inclined to interfere with the counting process in the light of the assurances given by the State Election Commission that necessary measures will be taken to apply COVID guidelines. Court-Room Exchange During the hearing, the Bench asked State Election Commission as to the steps that have been taken by them in this regard. ASG Bhati appearing for SEC and the State of UP submitted that the they have circulated a compendium of orders that have been passed by the SEC. The elections are completely over, with the last phase on 29th April. Bench inquired if stock of the day to day situation is being taken and assessment of the current situation being done considering It’s an evolving, dynamic situation ASG explained the Court about the tiers of the Panchayat Elections, and took Court through the data for polling and counting for the elections, including the total number of seats, places with nomination has been filed, and uncontested seats. Counting is required only for some 2 lakh seats. ASG further said that two orders have been passed on 29th April, completely in sync and in line with the guidelines of the EC for Assembly Elections which are slated to start on 2nd May. She also reiterates the guidelines such as wearing of masks and social distancing. In response to the Court’s query as to temperature is being checked at entry points and and the instructions regarding sanitisation, ASG Bhati informed that not only temperature, the SPO2 is also being checked with an oximeter check. She further added that its already mandated under the Disaster Management Act that crowds should not gather. The area will be sanitised, tables will be kept at distances, and whoever has symptoms will not be allowed. Steps have also been taken to ensure that maximum gap will be there. In response to Court’s observation regarding the need to o stagger the seats., ASG said thag they will stagger the timing as to which Gram Panchayat will be counted. The Bench asked ASG if the counting was necessary or if it could be deferred. “Where is that guideline ? This is the first step to be taken. You have to first assess the position. You have to take the decision at the macro level as to whether you have to take it right now or you can defer. Is it necessary to do the counting or you can defer ?” Bench asked ASG submitted that the State has taken the decision to go ahead with the counting. It’s a tightrope walk between the devil and the deep sea, and State has decided these decisions are best taken at the grassroots level. There is a Constitutional mandate to conduct the elections according the timeline. Further she added that Senior-level officers have been placed at these 829 centres to guide, supervise all the functions. ” How you ensure to do that, you will have to tell us that. There has to be uniform application. ” Bench said. Bench asked ASG to respond to three aspects, as to whether the decision to go ahead has been taken, the staggering counting, and if mind has been applied so that after two weeks situation is under control, with healthcare facilities. “The situation is grave everywhere. UP is no exception. Have you taken the decision to go ahead despite all ? ” Bench asked “A considered, well applied decision has been taken.” ASG responded. She stated that an affidavit will have to be placed to show all the measures taken. “I am asking this question to myself whether we should proceed with the counting today. Whether the administrative, medical healthcare facilities will be burdened.” Bench observed This decision has been taken after speaking to medical professionals and all. Bench expressed its apprehension that a situation will come up where the State will tell them that at that moment, things were not under control, as what happens at the counting centres is that tensions build up. ASG informed the Court that Counting is on Sunday because there is curfew in UP, and the State is confident that they we will be able to control. She clarified that counting will not take place in one day. In response to ASG’s submission that an affidavit will be placed by them, the Court asked what the point of meeting on Monday is if the counting will start on Sunday. “To satisfy your Lordships that counting is taking place properly.” ASG responded. Bench noting that the curfew is only for tomorrow, asked how the situation will be managed on Monday and Tuesday when there is no curfew. On being informed that there is curfew till Tuesday 7AM, the Court suggested that it be extended. “We are taking day to day decisions. It’s not a bureaucratic setup with sluggish decisions.We are ready to take in all feedback. We are not taking this petition as an adversarial stand.” ASG said. Advocate Alam submitted that the entire process should be deferred before the entire situation is over, as has been done in Maharashtra, where they have deferred the entire process. “Maharashtra situation is different. There are Councils and Corporations. Seats are vacated because of Court’s order.” Bench said. Alam responded to the Court’s observation and stated that Maharashtra recognised the situation and deferred it. The panchayat elections are different from Assembly, as 60 crore ballot papers are there along with 13 lakh candidates. For every person voting, there are four ballot papers handed over to every voter, making total ballot paper count reach 60 crores. Alam stated that in the previous circumstances where panchayat elections had taken place, its been seen that it’s not possible to reduce the number of days. He apprised the Court that there a report on the hundreds of teachers who have died in the process. In response to Court’s query regarding number of teachers who will be present, Alam stated that per candidate, there are two agents who are permitted to be resent, but teachers are not the only ones, and there is also revenue staff, making total tally reach to lakhs. Alam further said that, Allahabad High Court had taken cognisance of that, a protocol was given and nothing was followed. Alam stated that everyone is facing the present calamity and these election centres beinb a bed of infection, nobody should be sent there. These elections can be deferred by 2-3 months, as today is not the time. “We have to consider today’s position, you keep telling us about the past. Situation is different today. Don’t go to the past. We are not interested. We want to understand that there should be clarity on the fact that all these things have been considered by the authority.” Bench said. “You are in the position to solve it, to minimise the loss of life. Property and funds are not important. It is life which is the most important. If there is anything to be supplemented, then we will put it to the State. What has happened in the past, we can’t do anything. We can only prevent this from happening in the future. ” the Bench further observed. Bench then asked Bhati how the staff will be accommodated at the counting centres, ASG submitted that the counting will happen in shift of 8 hours each and new officers will come in. After every shift, sanitisation will take place. If it’s more than 75, then it will not happen. ASG also informed the Court that there will not be more than 75 government officials preset, excluding the security official. “You have to reduce the number.You should have given one hypothetical situation. 75, you say, every centre will have 75 people handling the papers. How can candidates and representatives enter then.” Bench asked ASG responded saying that the number exceeds 75, a broadcast system will be put in place. There are 25000 security officials who have been put at the perimeter to monitor the situation. Bench asked Bhati how will the situation of the teachers will be handled, considering there a representation from the teachers’ association, and 700 teachers have died. ASG stated she is unable respond to that because there are inquiries in place. However there are of other States where no election activities are happening, but numbers are surging, like Delhi ASG added that the teachers are on the jobs where they have been assigned. The entire process is in place. The counting procedure, we haven’t faced any lacunae. Alam then pointed out a representation has been made by an association of teachers, addressing it to the CM, saying that these are all the teachers who died dispensing their duty during the State panchayat elections. ASG informed the Court that the High Court had taken cognisance of passed an order on 27th April, and an enquiry as directed is still going on. “If an inquiry is being conducted, it will take time. In the midst of this, you are congregating teachers from all parts of the State. The number of people they met in between will travelling.” Adv Alam submitted. Alam further added that these are rural areas where spread is humongous. There is saliva which is used in the ballot numbers. To stall the process for a few weeks only, it can be deferred for a short while. The SEC should on its own come forward and take this decision, even if just one life is saved. Alam the pointed out two aspects in relation to ASG Bhati’s submissions regarding precautions that’d be taken: A negative RTPCR takes 2-3 days to come. This is an either/or. If a person is infected and he’s not showing symptoms, what will happen then ? Oximeter Test, how will that help ? Many dont have a lower SPO2. There are also people who don’t have fever, but are strong carriers of the infection. What will happen then ? Adv. Nikhil Majithia for an Applicant submitted that the ground realities are very different from what has been stated. Bench observed that is aware that the number will not be 75, will be a lot more and it does not even include staff. Advocate Majithia appearing for UP State Employees Joint Council submitted that they had requested that only the counting be deferred, pointing out there is incredible loss of life and spread of infection. Also, they had said that we will not be participating, taking this in mind. He added that the State is duty bound to consider their representations as roughly two lakh State employees are participating. “They will be working in shifts, they will not congregate in one place at one time.” Bench said. Adv. Ram Kishor Singh Yadav submitted that Panchayat elections were scheduled in the month of December 2020, and the government has delayed for five months in the name of reservation. Next 10-15 days will not make a huge difference, till the situation improves. Yadav submits that antigen tests are not available and RTPCR reports take days to come. While Curfew has been going on for the last 2-3 weeks, this is only for market purposes and it doesn’t say that there will be no transportation. Advocate Alam submitted that there have to be some officials who have to take liability and responsibility in case things are not followed. ASG submitted that rapid antigen counters will be available at the centres, and there will not be more than 150 officials and not more than 15-20 candidates at every counting table. “We are aware of the responsibility and not shirking from it. We are ensuring gloves and all equipment is available.” ASG said. She added that while now they have made rapid antigen counters available and with these counters, it will be possible for every person to get tested before entering. ASG further said that in the present situation, the choice is between the devil and deep sea. The experts are saying that the surge is ahead of us with all 21,000 frontline workers who have been employed. This is something the Court may consider and allow counting process to continue. Bench asked ASG to get instructions regarding supervision of the 800 centres, you are saying, from an officer who should be of level of Joint Secretary. ASG submitted that she had been informed that Senior officials have been deputed in each district. They will oversee the adherence of COVID protocol. And these will be IAS officers of Principal Secretary level. “Not just observer, they must be accountable in case anything goes wrong. You will have to notify immediately on your website.” Bench said. ASG submitted that there is a Class 1 gazetted officer, and they can pass an order saying that they will be fully responsible for COVID guidelines and CCTV cameras are also present.

Truman (CVN 75) departed Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY) May 22 following the successful completion of its carrier incremental availability.Harry S. Truman marked the first carrier incremental availability performed at NNSY. These shorter carrier availabilities are usually performed at Naval Station Norfolk. The 15-week availability began in November, but Truman’s time at NNSY was extended to allow for additional work to be performed.Major tasks completed on Truman included modernization of the propulsion plant, main engine and attached lube oil pump repairs as well as major inspections of the catapult launch system. NNSY work was comprised of approximately 135,000 man-days, with support also provided by Ship’s Force, Multi-Ship/Multi-Option (MSMO) contractor, Newport News Shipbuilding and Alteration Installation Teams (AITs).Twenty percent of the U.S. Navy’s carrier force has been under the care of NNSY over the last several months. USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) is now in the final stages of its docking planned incremental availability, a more comprehensive modernization event. To support continual production on this concentrated availability, job readiness cells (JRCs) were placed for the Truman project team in both the carrier hangar bay and on the pier. JRCs provide mechanics tooling and consumables in an area conveniently co-located next to a project, supporting nonstop execution of work.Truman is the Navy’s ninth nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and the eighth in the Nimitz class.

first_imgCan’t use it, can’t lose it. That’s the dilemma farmers have faced for years withcanceled chemicals and empty pesticide containers.But two programs run by the University of Georgia Extension Service and the Georgia Department of Agriculture (DOA) offer alegal, low-cost option that helps farmers protect the environment.”The Pesticide Container Recycling and Georgia Clean Day programs help farmers whoreally want to do the right thing,” said Paul Guillebeau, an Extension Serviceentomologist with the UGA College of Agricultural andEnvironmental Sciences.”They know it’s best to safely dispose of containers and pesticides,” hesaid. “But they haven’t always had a good way to do that.”Hundreds of tons of canceled chemicals and empty pesticide jugs sit in or behind barns,shelters and outbuildings on farms across the state. Canceled pesticides were once-legalproducts that have become illegal because of Environmental Protection Agency regulationsor voluntary action by the manufacturer.Farmers must get rid of them carefully to keep from contaminating groundwater or soil.Guillebeau works with Jarrell Jarrett, aDOA special projects coordinator. They arrange to safely dispose of high-densitypolyethylene jugs and farm chemicals all around the state.Jarrett said the jugs are fairly easy to take care of.”They have to be rinsed properly by the farmer, collected, chipped and shipped toa facility in Texas,” he said. “There, they’re melted and recast into plasticgoods like pallets and fence posts.”That’s an aspect Guillebeau likes best about the program. “The products arereused,” he said, “but also end up saving wood by replacing it in products thatare otherwise made from trees.”Farmers have two legal ways to get rid of pesticide jugs: recycling or landfills.”But they take up so much space in landfills,” Jarrett said. “And manylandfills won’t take them because of pesticide residue concerns.”In 1997, Georgia farmers recycled 200,000 pounds of containers, or more than 260,0002.5-gallon jugs.Safely disposing of the canceled pesticides takes a little more effort. Georgia CleanDay began in 1991 to help farmers get old chemicals to a safe disposal site.Jarrett works with Guillebeau and county extension agents to plan collection days. Theagents arrange a place in the county and advertise the Georgia Clean Day.Farmers must make reservations. They fill out a form telling the kind and amount of thechemical and the condition of its container.The agents tally the amounts and send it to Jarrett, without names. “This programis anonymous,” he said. “On the collection day, you don’t even have to get outof the truck.”The waste pesticides are collected, sorted, stored and shipped to a contractedhazardous waste disposal company.Guillebeau said the products are usually incinerated. The company burns them at veryhigh temperatures. It pipes the smoke and fumes through air scrubbers to remove any toxinsbefore they reach the atmosphere.Both programs are free to farmers. The DOA, Extension Service and United Ag Productsteam up to fund the pesticide and container collection and disposal.In 1998, for the first time, the Georgia legislature funded the Clean Day. Theyallocated $240,000 to expand the program to more sites. “That funding will allow usto safely dispose of 162,000 pounds of chemicals,” Guillebeau said.The programs are for farm chemicals only. But Guillebeau and Jarrett hope to expandthem to include other toxic products such as household pesticides. The main barrier ismoney. “We simply don’t have the funds right now to cover it,” Jarrett said.Want to know more about safely getting rid of such chemicals? Call your countyextension office.

first_img 52SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Elry Armaza Elry Armaza is passionate about finding proactive solutions in a financial industry riddled with disruption. As Impact Director, he brings the best of Filene’s research and innovation into action. … Web: Details Have you noticed how much power the rating of an app has? Think about it, the last time you were looking for a GPS, exercise tracking, or mobile game. You likely based your decision to download the app (even at a cost) on its rating.We have grown comfortable relying on others’ opinions and we assume that these anonymous raters offer unbiased insights. After all, this is what we do with other experiences, from what restaurant to choose for dinner tonight to the hotel selection for your next family vacation.What about a mobile banking app?I have been investing much time lately (between November 2015 and February 2016 I studied 75 mobile banking apps) helping credit unions through the work we do at Filene with our Digital Strategies program. In that effort, I have uncovered a trend among app ratings in Apple’s App Store. The rating of the app had more to do with the users’ expectation rather than the app’s functionality.I found financial institutions with a robust app platform, built from scratch, offering good user experience, and with innovative features, with low ratings. In fact, the top 10 largest national banks averaged 3.1 stars out of 5. And the top 10 largest credit unions averaged 2.8 stars. If Angry Birds had this type of ratings, the world wouldn’t have experienced the eighteen versions that they since launched.At the other side of the spectrum, some medium size and small credit unions’ mobile banking apps with the highest ratings (4.5 stars and up) shared the same interface developer. The ratings are the complete opposite. The features perform well, but are rather basic, there are no bells and whistles here, and yet these apps enjoy high ratings.Why are mobile banking app ratings not directly tied to the innovative features or strongest and most robust experiences?My hypothesis based on the verbatim comments in the ratings is that we have one set of people rating the apps of the large and innovative financial institutions as if they were rating features in a luxury SUV, while a distinct group of people is rating the apps of the medium size credit unions as if they were rating features available in a small economy vehicle.Some of the harshest reviews given to the top 10 banks and credit unions are comparisons to other financials within this same group. They are based on advanced features like the ability for the mobile app to offer money management tools, predict future balances in real time, and activate and deactivate a card from the app. Members’ reviews given to the medium size or small credit unions for their app interface used phrases as “being easy to use,” “reliable,” and “meeting the expectations for everyday banking.”This ratings story emphasizes the importance of building for your members and solving their biggest problems and challenges. Also, who are building for? Is it the member of today or the member you want to attract for tomorrow? In either case, don’t let a positive rating “fool you” into believing that the mobile experience is exceptional. If your credit union is working on redesigning your mobile banking app and your goal is to offer innovative digital solutions to your members, let’s say closer to a “crossover vehicle” experience, pay close attention to members’ feedback. If you see a decline on your app’s rating with members pointing to new functionality that the app is missing, you might indeed be attracting a new segment of members. And that lower rating might be a positive indicator that your program is going in the right direction.last_img read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York It will be theater in the ‘rough’ in more ways than one when Bonney/King Productions brings Lyle Kessler’s dark drama, “Orphans,” to Conklin Barn in Huntington for a two-week run opening Thursday.Hosting the show is the circa 1830 Conklin Barn, one of the few surviving hand-built shelters from the early days of the Long Island settlers, which was moved from Laurel Hollow to its present location in 1990. The rugged structure provides an intimate venue suited to theater in the round and for this drama, which explores the vagaries of the human soul and longings of individuals who are rough around the edges.“It is a diamond in the rough,” said Sean King of Smithtown, who co-produced and stars in the show as Harold, a complex father figure.The story line follows two brothers, Treat and Philip, orphaned at an early age, who are living in an unconventional world of their own creation in a dilapidated North Philly row house. Treat supports the pair through petty thievery while Philip, instilled by his brother with fear of the outside world, is a virtual shut-in. The dynamics shift when Treat brings home Harold, an inebriated businessman who has reasons of his own for assuming the uneasy role of surrogate father to the two dysfunctional young men.Treat, the volcanic brother, played by Aaron Dalla Villa, and the child-like, sensitive Philip, played by Jay William Thomas, were cast after 600 actors saw the ad in Backstage magazine, and turned out to audition in a Manhattan studio.“Orphans” is the second summer theater production that King and Jim Bonney of Huntington have staged at the Conklin Barn. Bonney is at the helm again as director.King and Bonney’s first production, “Prisoners and Criminals,” played to a sold-out house last summer. Based on an original script by Canadian playwright Jared Wright, “Prisoners and Criminals” garnered 2014 awards for Long Island’s Best Play, Actor and Director from Broadway World for Bonney and King.Following this triumph, Bonney—electrified after he saw the Broadway revival of “Orphans” with Alec Baldwin and Ben Foster—was determined to bring it to Huntington audiences.King, who has made a career of playing tormented souls, is equally excited about producing this show with Bonney.“’Orphans’ premiered on stage in Los Angeles in 1983 with Joe Pantoliano of Sopranos’ fame and the late Lane Smith, who starred as Richard Nixon in ‘The Final Days,’” King said. “‘Orphans’ went on to be produced all over the world, including a very successful London run. It was nominated for a Tony for Best Revival of a Play.”The story of lost boys who live on the outskirts of society, yet crave a normalcy, still resonates today, Bonney said of the drama with comic overtones.The basis for the 1987 film starring Albert Finney and Matthew Modine, King said that this hard-hitting drama established Kessler as a playwright and showcases some of his finest writing. The playwright will be in attendance at the Sept. 4 performance, which will be followed by a question and answer period.It is all part of King and Bonney’s vision to bring theater that takes audiences out of their comfort zones to Huntington.“Audiences need to be exposed to all kinds of theater,” Bonney said. “We want to create a theater collective, a space where new playwrights can see their work come to life.”The Conklin Barn is located at 2 High St. off New York Ave. in downtown Huntington. The show opens on Aug. 20 for a 12-performance run through Sept. 5. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at read more

first_imgThings are heating up at the American Legion Post 80 in Binghamton where the 30th year of the dinner will take place. “Over the course of those five days, we roast about 150 turkeys. Give or take, because it’s by pound. It’s about 3,000 pounds,” said Bandera. “Setting the stage so that volunteers have a clean place and a fun-filled place to help us do turkeys,” said Bandera. While the work leading up to Christmas can be a lot, it’s all worth it in the end. “People by hand are chopping 300 pounds of celery, 300 pounds of onions and that’s a whole day or day and a half process. And that gets sauteed and cooked so everything like that is a step. One step at a time and then we put it all together,” said Bandera. He says he wants everything to be perfect for when the day of the dinner comes. Each year, the Bandera Christmas Dinner also provides meals for delivery. “There’s something about this year being 30 that really speaks to my heart,” said organizer Bill Bandera. “Sometimes you get the feeling like, oh man two weeks of work and 20 minutes of eating and it’s over. But that 20 minutes lasts a lifetime for a lot of people and I say this all the time, it’s not just about the people we serve it’s about the people serving them. And it’s a win-win for everybody,” said Bandera.center_img Throughout the first five days, the focus is the main meal. “It’s a staple in this community now and I would feel like I’m letting them down if I wasn’t able to continue at the same level that we’ve done for the past 30 years,” said Bandera. Preps start so far out because everything is homemade. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — It’s that time of year again, with Christmas two weeks away, preparations are underway for the annual Bandera Family Christmas Dinner. Preparations take 10 to 12 days and it starts with cleaning up the locations where dinner is being served. This year dinner is being served at three locations including the American Legion Post 80 in Binghamton, the American Legion Post 189 in Norwich, and at the St. Ambrose Church in Endicott.

first_imgNippon Life Insurance Company is to hold a 5% stake in DWS once the asset manager is listed, Deutsche Bank said today.DWS and Nippon Life have also agreed a strategic partnership, which will include a contribution of assets under management to DWS, opportunities for distribution, and joint product development for an initial period of five years.A representative of the Japanese insurer will also be a member of DWS’s supervisory board.Nicolas Moreau, member of the management board of Deutsche Bank and CEO of DWS, said: “Our strategic alliance is consistent with, and will help accelerate, our focus on growing in the Asia region.” The plans were announced in a statement about the terms of listing DWS, which Deutsche Bank last month confirmed it would proceed with. DWS is the new brand for the asset manager, to be rolled out after the IPO.The bank today said it would sell 20% of DWS shares, with the possibility of increasing this to up to 25% in the event of particularly strong demand.The shares are to be offered at between €30 to €36 per share. Based on that price range, DWS’s market capitalisation would be between €6bn to €7.2bn.Commission ‘disappoints’ with CMU plans for investment funds European Commission (EC) plans to amend private equity and venture capital laws could make it harder for private equity fund managers to raise cross-border capital from EU investors, according to trade body Invest Europe.It said the Commission had proposed amendments that would prevent fund managers from sharing draft marketing materials with investors, which would impede their ability to negotiate a deal.“The Commission’s latest proposal goes against its good intentions for a Capital Markets Union that improves cross-border capital flows,” said Michael Collins, CEO of Invest Europe.The Commission today presented a package of proposals aimed at completing the Capital Markets Union (CMU) project. The sustainable finance action plan it presented on Thursday also came under the heading of the CMU, along with fintech proposals also revealed last week.Today the Commission presented three sets of proposals, one of which was for rules designed to eliminate barriers to the cross-border distribution of investment funds in the EU. Some of these rules were intended to facilitate pre-marketing activities by asset managers but Invest Europe was concerned the proposed wording could have the opposite effect.In seeking to come up with harmonised definition of pre-marketing for different types of funds, the Commission had not taken due account of the way in which private equity operated compared with other alternative funds or retail funds, Invest Europe said. Draft marketing materials were “an important part of the ongoing dialogue between fund managers and investors, including pension funds and insurers”, said Invest Europe’s CEO. The EC said easier cross-border distribution was expected to speed up growth of a single EU market for investment funds and boost competition between asset managers. Its proposal consists of a regulation and a directive, and “is designed to improve transparency, remove overly complex and burdensome requirements and harmonise diverging national rules,” it said. The German fund management association, BVI, said the Commission’s proposal was “disappointing” and created new obstacles rather than eliminating existing ones. BVI’s statement focused on provisions relating to the conditions a manager could de-register a fund in a given national market. Thomas Richter, CEO of BVI, said: “Instead of removing barriers to cross-border distribution the Commission would rather assign new powers to the European Securities and Markets Authority and scale back the powers of national supervisory authorities.”Costing the EC sustainable finance planAsset managers could face increased execution risk and higher costs as a consequence of EU legislation clarifying their duties with regard to sustainability, according to Moody’s.The rating agency was commenting on the EC’s sustainable finance action plan, which was unveiled last week.Asset managers would need greater environmental, social and governance (ESG) expertise if they were required to incorporate ESG considerations in every investment decision they made, the credit ratings agency said.“Finding consistent, high-quality data to guide ESG investing is a particular challenge, given a lack of universally accepted ESG definitions and standard reporting guidelines,” said Moody’s analysts.“As sustainability is not binary by nature, and its criteria are mostly qualitative, it is complex and costly to track, analyse and report. Firms that either lack this capability, or possess it only in rudimentary form, will need to acquire it or build it up internally.”Envisaged enhanced disclosure requirements would also entail additional costs as asset managers would need to explain how they take ESG factors into consideration and update their product offering and prospectuses accordingly. They would also need to expand internal systems to track compliance, because non-compliance could lead to fines.last_img read more

first_img Sunderland would have pushed on considerably further had the key decisions in Saturday’s game gone their way, but ultimately had to settle for a 13th league draw of the season and the seventh stalemate which left them in 16th place and three points clear of the drop zone. Referee Mike Jones’ decision to book rather than send off defender Joleon Lescott for a fifth-minute foul on Danny Graham, which was spotted by assistant Constantine Hatzidakis, irked Poyet more than the pair’s ruling that Adam Johnson was offside after he had appeared to put the home side ahead on the stroke of half-time. The Uruguayan said: “I have watched it 20 times – he stopped and yes, it’s onside. It’s a tough one. I understand that referees are human beings and the linesman from 40 yards, the ball is flying and when he looks, Jonno is two yards behind, the perfect run. He can give the offside. “I’ll take that one. It hurts because it was a goal, but I’ll take it. But the first one, no. The first one was a straightforward red card, and I don’t think there’s any doubt.” West Brom extended their run under Tony Pulis to just one defeat in nine games in all competitions, although by the manager’s own admission, they were not at their best and even Saido Berahino failed to impress in front of watching England boss Roy Hodgson. Pulis said: “Saido has been fantastic for us, but he took a knock early on in the game and he struggled with his ankle. But we wanted to keep him on because he has been playing so well for us. “He can do things, special things, so we kept him on there. He is also a young lad who has to learn when things are not going well for him, he has to work hard for the rest of the team. He has done that and I am very, very pleased. “Although we didn’t play very well and he has had better days, his effort and commitment were first-class.” Press Association He said: “If that’s what people want to say, that’s fine. I believe I bring something to the team – I think I could bring something to most teams. “I’d like to think I help players on the pitch, that’s a key asset for me. I like to think I drive players on and get more out of them. “That’s one of my strong attributes and if that’s been missed, it’s been missed. But I’d like to think I am back now and I want to push on and I want to finish the season strongly.” Cattermole’s return could hardly be more timely for Poyet after back-to-back 2-0 defeats by league rivals QPR and League One Bradford in the FA Cup fifth round had cast a pall over Wearside. The former Middlesbrough and Wigan man could only look on helplessly as a chance to go one better than last season’s Capital One Cup final appearance went begging, but he will not allow himself or his team-mates to dwell upon a missed opportunity. He said: “It killed me watching the Bradford game. I was really disappointed on the back of last season and being so close to winning the Capital One Cup. “That was something I really felt we could go and push on and get a good draw. It would have kept our season really alive, it would have kept a real buzz. “But now we have got to push on and put every bit of focus on the league because it’s such a tough division and it’s proving to be really hard work.” The 26-year-old midfielder returned after a 10-game injury lay-off to provide fresh impetus as the Black Cats were controversially denied a much-needed Barclays Premier League victory over West Brom on Saturday with many commentators citing his absence as one of the key factors in a worrying run of form. Cattermole modestly side-stepped suggestions that his unavailability because of groin and knee injuries had impacted so heavily on Gus Poyet’s team, but vowed to bring his characteristic vigour to the mission to ease the club up the table, which started with a frustrating 0-0 draw against the Baggies. Lee Cattermole is ready to be the driving force behind a Sunderland resurgence as he attempts to spark another successful survival fight. last_img read more

first_imgWorld number one Rory McIlroy will not defend his WGC-Bridgestone Invitational title next week as he continues his recovery from a serious ankle injury. Medical experts suggested the Northern Irishman could face three months on the sidelines and the 26-year-old confirmed on Wednesday that he would not be able to compete at Firestone Country Club in Akron from August 6-9. “Unfortunately, I will not be defending my World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational title,” McIlroy said in a statement from tournament organisers. “Best of luck to all the competitors and I look forward to returning to Firestone in 2016.” McIlroy won the Open, Bridgestone Invitational and US PGA in consecutive appearances last summer, his wire-to-wire victory at Hoylake meaning he needs to win the Masters at Augusta National to complete a career grand slam. Announcing his decision to withdraw from the Open earlier this month, McIlroy said he was taking a “long-term view” of the injury and would not return to action until he felt “100% healthy and 100% competitive”. Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke suggested that meant McIlroy, who could soon be overtaken in the world rankings by Jordan Spieth, would not be back until ”early next year” as he accepted an award on his fellow Northern Irishman’s behalf at the Old Course. However, Clarke later insisted his comment was meant as a joke and a spokesman for McIlroy told Press Association Sport: ”There was no basis for Darren’s comments. Rory’s rehabilitation is progressing well but his return date is not yet known.” Tournament officials also announced that four-time PGA Tour winner Chris Kirk will not compete in Akron after failing to recover from the broken hand he suffered while playing with his children before the Open. And that increases the likelihood that the four-time major winner will also be unable to defend the following week’s US PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. McIlroy suffered a ”total rupture” of the anterior talofibular ligament in his left ankle while playing football with friends on July 4 and was forced to miss the Scottish Open and the defence of his Open title at St Andrews. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on December 31, 2017 at 10:52 pm Contact Billy: [email protected] | @Wheyen3 With just under four minutes remaining in the first half on Sunday, the ball was batted around in the Syracuse offensive half. Bodies hit the floor and SU’s Marek Dolezaj dove and won the ball. From his backside, he kicked it out to Frank Howard on the right wing, who sent a skip pass to Tyus Battle on the left. Battle canned the three to put the Orange up 11. It was just the kind of offense Syracuse needed against a high-powered Virginia Tech.“Marek’s stats don’t show it, but he was really good,” Jim Boeheim said.On New Year’s Eve at the Carrier Dome, it was Syracuse (12-2, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) shooting a better percentage than one of the nation’s best offenses, Virginia Tech (11-3, 0-1), in its 68-56 win. The Hokies entered the game shooting 54.5 percent from the field. But SU shot 48.9 percent from the floor compared to VT’s 34.6 percent in the victory.Three of the first four buckets of the game came from the Orange as the Hokies struggled to find open looks. The first came from Oshae Brissett going up strong on an attempt from the right block. The next was courtesy of Matthew Moyer after an offensive rebound. And the third was scored by Tyus Battle, driving toward the basket, on a floater. The common theme: all three featured an SU player getting to the rim.“We’re the do-whatever-it-takes team,” Howard said. “Whatever it takes, we’re gonna try to do it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEvery pregame number suggested Syracuse wouldn’t outshoot Virginia Tech from deep. As expected, SU didn’t outshoot VT from beyond. Syracuse shot the same percentage (33), with the Hokies making twice as many (10-5), but the Orange made 3s when it had to, like the Battle three in the first half and his backbreaking deep ball in the second half to put SU up 14.But it was inside the arc where the difference came for Syracuse. For the game, SU finished at 56.3 percent on 2s. The Hokies were just 36.4 percent from inside the 3-point line.“Some games we don’t have good shooting games, but I know we have good shooters,” Howard said. “… Just gotta find our groove and our rhythm.”Just past the midway point of the first half, Howard drove right. He planted his feet with a bit of a pump fake, stepped through towards the basket and around his defender with his right foot, leaned in to take some contact and elevated to swish a righty jumper.Battle didn’t waste any time the next trip down the floor, as he brought the ball up after VT threw the ball away, used a screen from Dolezaj, drove a few dribbles left and rose to knock down a free-throw line jumper for two of his 17 points.After the Hokies offense seemed to have awoken, two big 2-point baskets led to Battle’s dagger 3 that put SU up 14. On the second, Battle ignored a screen to drive left and instead drove right, towards the baseline. From the other corner, Matthew Moyer crashed towards the basket. Battle fed Moyer for a huge dunk that put the Carrier Dome on the verge of pandemonium.“That sequence was … one of the most momentum-changing sequences I’ve seen or been a part of,” Moyer said.Without the two easy 2s before Battle’s 3, the 3-pointer wouldn’t have meant as much. With them, it meant plenty.Virginia Tech wasn’t going anywhere and Syracuse had to keep getting to the basket to hold off the Hokies. Brissett got another basket in the post on a baby right hook to get to his final total of 19. Dolezaj set up Moyer for another finish at the rim, albeit a tame lay-in this time. Moyer got another slam soon enough when Battle set him up for a dunk off another cut with about two and a half minutes left to put SU up 20.“We have so many guys that can step up on a given night,” Battle said. “And I know I don’t have any pressure to make something happen or do something special here.”That second Moyer dunk was Syracuse’s last field goal of the contest. The redshirt freshman Moyer is prone to a post-dunk fist pump or two. But on that finish, he just ran back down the floor. There was still a potent offense to shut down. Commentslast_img read more

first_imgcredit: UNICEF  It is extremely ironic that as the community celebrates the Thanksgiving holiday, characterized mainly by overindulging in a feast, thousands of Americans have little to be thankful for as they agonize in poverty and related hunger.  40 percent of Americans living in poverty Earlier this year, a UN report indicated that 40 percent of Americans were living in poverty, including 5 percent who were living in “absolute poverty” similar to the poor in Third World countries.Associated with this high level of poverty usually is a high rate of hunger, especially among children in rural America and American inner cities.Millions of Americans have or are experiencing hunger mainly because of poverty, brought about by either unemployment, underemployment, disability, or misuse of whatever money they have on addictive habits like gambling, alcoholism and drugs. However, very few people accept a life of poverty and hunger by choice. Rather the poverty they experience is a result of often inescapable circumstances. Meanwhile, it is questionable, whether or not some people, although they are financial burdened could avoid the hunger afflicting their families. Contradictions  A local study in which CNW participated recently revealed a contradiction relevant to poverty being experienced by some South Florida families.  The study found there are poor families who are cutting back on food and groceries in order to have their low and declining incomes meet their expenses. The food budget in most households included in this study was down by an average of 12 percent. On the other hand, the study revealed some of the same families were deliberately cutting back on expenditure for food and were saving at least $50 a week to spend on holiday shopping. Fifty dollars a week could easily have made the difference between eating decently for a week or going hungry.Mis-prioritizing scarce income The implication from this study is some of the over 40 million Americans experiencing poverty and related hunger could result from them mis-prioritizing scare funds at their disposal.  There are incidences of heads of so-called poor households,  driving expensive, late model motor vehicles to supermarkets to purchase food with food stamps. It’s assumed these people received food stamps to assist them to be food secure because they met poverty guidelines that qualified them for government assistance. Then, some of these same people complain their food stamp allocation is insufficient to adequately feed the family, and further complain when their assistance is terminated. Yet they hang on to their expensive vehicles, when trading them for less expensive units or utilizing public transportation, could help to put food on the family table.Sometimes, it isn’t possible to differentiate between Americans who are experiencing hunger because of mis-placed priorities, and those who absolutely have little or no financial resources with which to feed their family. Poverty has no particular identification In America, unlike some poorer countries, hunger or poverty have no particular identification.  A well-dressed individual could be someone who is unable to buy a decent meal for days. Well-dressed children attending school daily may have no dinner to go home to. Only few people go walking around with signs indicating, “I’ll work for food.”  The fact is, whether deliberate or through real unfortunate circumstances no one, much less over 40 million Americans, should having limited access to food, even occasionally. Like personal wealth, food is too unequally distributed in this country. Hunger not solved by chartable feedingThe problem of hunger is not solved by the occasional charitable meal offered to the poor and hungry at Thanksgiving, Christmas and on weekends, or by delivering buckets of leftover food to homeless shelters. The society, not just the government, must find ways to effectively distribute the prevailing lopsided wealth experienced by only a few to those perpetually locked in the cycle of poverty.Regardless of the status of statewide and national economies it should be a priority to sustain (and better manage) social programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or food stamp program. Means should also be taken to ensure more children from financial needy homes have access to school meals daily, and even when schools are not in session,  Granted, society usually bear the financial burden of these extended measures to the financially challenged.  But, it’s worth bearing this burden, rather than having over 40 million Americans, including 15 million children experience hunger and its long term social and physical negative effects. It’s also necessary to somehow find ways of educating those who are financially challenged to place food and nutrition for their families before unaffordable holiday shopping and acquisition of unnecessary material possessions.last_img read more

first_imgPORT AU PRINCE, Haiti – The Director General of the National Police of Haiti (PNH), Michel-Ange Gédéon, Friday praised law enforcement officials for showing restraint during protest demonstrations across Haiti on Thursday that left at least four people dead and several others wounded. “Several officers were victims of malicious individuals who, having infiltrated the demonstration, wanted to create panic and chaos by throwing stones and firing for no apparent reason,” Gédéon, said in a statement.He said the police had been able to “show restraint…particularly in Mirebalais where the PNH had nine wounded in its ranks,” adding “the High Command is proud of their behavior and encourages them to control their emotions so they do not give in to provocation”.The PNH said it also wanted to extend sympathies to persons who “were victims of malicious individuals who, having infiltrated the demonstration, wanted to create panic and chaos by throwing stones and firing for no apparent reason.”Thousands protested On Thursday, thousands turned out in support of calls by the opposition parties here demanding the removal of President Jovenel Moise, jobs, corruption and the trial of those implicated in the ongoing investigation into the use of the funds under the PetroCaribe scheme through which Ven4ezuela had been providing oil to Haiti under preferential terms.30th anniversary of end of Duvalier regime The demonstration also coincided with the 30th anniversary of the end of the dictatorship of the Duvalier regimes and paralyzed most of the country.But there were violent clashes with police who used tear gas and repeatedly fired gunshots into the air to disperse demonstrators. Protestors also burnt vehicles and looted several businesses.The PNH deputy spokesman, Gary Desrosiers, on Thursday night reported that two people had been killed and at least 15 police officers were injured. But the figures rose on Friday as the authorities were able to give a better assessment of the situation.They said that 20 demonstrators were injured and that four people had been killed in Mirebalais, 60 kilometers north east of the capital.last_img read more

I’ve managed to get on and contribute with a goal. “The gaffer is going to put out the team he feels is best to win the game.“I’ve got to produce to keep my place.”Schlupp has scored one goal and provided two assists in 12 appearances for the club this season.Crystal Palace will take on Bournemouth on Tuesday, live on Citi 97.3 FM.last_img read more

first_imgUPDATE: The PGA Tour on Thursday announced the cancellation of the Players Championship and all tournaments through the Valspar Championship due to coronavirus concerns.The Players Championship, unofficially called golf’s “fifth major,” represents the first big tournament of the year on the PGA Tour schedule. Nearly all of the world’s top 50 golfers are competing at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., with Tiger Woods as one notable omission. The 15-time major winner is nursing a stiff back and has not played on the PGA Tour since he finished a lowly 68th — last of all players who made the cut — at the Genesis Open three weeks ago.The Players makes up for the lack of prestige compared to the other majors with its massive purse, the largest on the PGA Tour in 2020, and that’s enough to ensure a well-endowed field. World No. 1 Rory McIlory will attempt to become the first player in history to repeat as champion in the tournament. He’ll tee off with Jon Rahm and Brooks Koepka as part of a start-studded featured grouping. The field also includes Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson and others.Of course, Sawgrass is an attraction in itself, known as one of the most storied courses in golf. It features the famous 17th hole, a par 3 surrounded almost exclusively by water.Here is a guide to watch the Players Championship in 2020, including a list of tee times (updated daily), the complete TV schedule and more.

first_imgMASON CITY — The City Councils of Mason City and Clear Lake as well as the Cerro Gordo County Board of Supervisors this week will consider initial approval of a “Small Business Recovery & Continuity Fund” to provide financial relief for small businesses through the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. North Iowa Corridor Economic Development Corporation CEO Chad Schreck says businesses who have experienced significant disruption and revenue losses will be eligible for grants of up to $5000 to help ensure business continuity, with the goal of the program being to assist companies within the county in maintaining operations through the pandemic, or re-opening once it’s over. Schreck says the assistance will provide businesses with immediate, short-term cash flow that can be deployed for a variety of uses. Priority will be given to locally-owned, independent businesses under 25 employees.The goal is to raise over $500,000 collectively pending the approval of each governmental body. Private businesses or individuals that would like to support local businesses through that effort will also be able to donate to the fund.  Pre-applications to verify eligibility will open on April 8th, with the first review of full applications starting April 17th and continuing weekly until the funds are expended.

The Alavés-Baskonia group, for example, has carried out in ERTE that affects its 766 workers. That is precisely what Betis is trying to avoid and which aims to occur soon. Betis has groped its footballers in recent days about a pay cut. The Verdiblanco club does not want to talk about ERTE, but it does want to lower the wages of part of its athletes for the duration of the league break due to the coronavirus. A reduction that could range, according to what has been proposed, between 30 and 50 percent, and that in part would be recoverable. The objective is to avoid that the club has to send many of the other workers home temporarily, something that seemed to avoid Barcelona although, finally, the culé club has communicated that it will do this ERTE to its ‘ordinary’ employees. The general director, Federico Martínez Feria, stated in the official media in recent days that the entity’s budgets are made in a “prudent” way, but the verdiblanco club is no stranger to the significant loss of income for the clubs that this pandemic due to the coronavirus supposes and will entail, even more so if LaLIga ends up being canceled.last_img read more

James said after the loss he played the last three games with a broken right hand, reportedly caused when he punched a display board in frustration after a J.R. Smith error and referee call reversal led to an overtime loss in a game the Cavs led late.“Self-inflicted, post-game after game one. Very emotional. For a lot of different reasons — understanding how important a game one is on the road for our ballclub, what would that have done for us, the way we played, the calls that were made throughout the course of that game,” James said.“I had emotions on the game was taken away from us. I had emotions of you just don’t get an opportunity like this on the road versus Golden State to be able to get a game one. And I let the emotions get the best of me.”‘Terrifying’ talentThat outburst aside, James was proudest of being a rock for the Cavs in a difficult season.“It has definitely been a whirlwind,” James said. “I just try to be consistent throughout the course of the season. Be the leader I know I can be for this ballclub, for this franchise every night, no matter what was going on from the outside or the inside, and be reliable every single day.”Warriors coach Steve Kerr called James “terrifying” and said he is level with former Kerr teammate Michael Jordan as the NBA’s finest that he ever saw.“I think maybe the greatest testament to LeBron is that five years ago he was one of the top five players of all time. From five years ago until now, it seems like he’s 10 times better, because he’s added so much skill to his game,” Kerr said.“I get asked all the time about MJ, LeBron, and it’s such a difficult question to ask. All I know is they’re the two best players that I’ve ever witnessed.

Then it ultimately will come down to me, and so we’ll see what happens.”In 2014, James returned to the Cavaliers vowing to win a title and did so in 2016, the first by any Cleveland sports team since the 1964 NFL Browns.“I came back because I felt like I had some unfinished business,” James said. “To be able to be a part of a championship team two years ago with the team that we had and in the fashion that we had is something I will always remember.”Asked if his business was finished, James called that a “trick question” but noted the victory fed his hunger for more trophy ceremonies.“I still have so much to give to the game,” James said. “Like I said, when you have a goal and you’re able to accomplish that goal, it made me even more hungry to continue to try to win championships, and I still want to be in championship mode. I think I’ve shown this year why I will still continue to be in championship mode.”ADVERTISEMENT James, who played his eighth consecutive finals, can opt out of his contract and become a free agent in July, much the way he did when he left Cleveland in 2010.His departure engendered bitter feelings and burned jerseys, but he came back after two titles and two finals losses in Miami and went 1-3 in four straight finals meetings with the Warriors.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownWhile opportunities with the Houston Rockets, Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers are likely available, the native of nearby Akron might elect to stay and try to keep the Cavs a contender.“I have no idea at this point,” James said. “Sitting down and considering everything, my family is a huge part of whatever I’ll decide to do in my career, and it will continue to be that.

first_imgDear Editor,In March, I wrote to point out that the traffic lights controlling the junction of the Rupert Craig Highway and Sheriff Street were not working. These lights are still not working.In response to my letter, a section of the media invited a comment from Chief Works Officer, Mr Geoffrey Vaughn, who said that these lights would be replaced within a few weeks. More than two months have elapsed since then.I also referred to the fact that the traffic lights controlling the junction of the Ogle Airport Road and the Railway Embankment Road have been left permanently flashing even at peak traffic hours.Both of these situations are extremely dangerous but, it seems, continue to be ignored in spite of Mr Vaughn’s promises. When, may I ask, will the Public Infrastructure Ministry have these lights operational or do we have to wait for someone to be seriously maimed or killed?Yours sincerely,Kit Nascimentolast_img read more

first_imgThe Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) has provided maximum security at all border points to ensure the full compliance of Liberia’s health protocols in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD).The disclosure was made on this Tuesday when BIN Deputy Commissioner for Administration, Col. Peter F. Ziazay, appeared at the Ministry of Information daily Ebola press briefing on Capitol Hill in Monrovia.According to him, the measure was taken after President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf announced the reopening of all borders, a week ago.Commissioner Zaizay said the BIN has been working with authorities at the Atlanta-based US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local and other international partners, including those from the Ministry of Health, to ensure that proper measures are followed to avoid the resurgence of the virus.“We continue to tour various border points in line with the government and its partners in the fight against the EVD,” he said.He noted that BIN officers have continued to tour major border points, including York Island, Bo-waterside, Gbota, Jorwah and  Garmu.Commissioner Zaizay further  disclosed that BIN personnel have been trained in Ebola preventive methods, and have been assigned with six vehicles and 34 motorcycles, as well as several pieces of Personnel Protective Equipment (PPEs).The motorcycles, he said were donated to the BIN by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).He also revealed that the BIN has conducted a self-assessment retreat to indentify gaps and challenges as well as practices aimed at improving personnel performance.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgWith still two more years to the holding of general and presidential elections in Liberia, the leaders of several political parties are already amassing and preparing a strategy for victory in 2017. An alliance of seven political parties under the banner, Progressive Coordinating Group (PCG), has declared that it will take state power in 2017.The PCG includes the National Democratic Coalition (NDC), New Democratic Alternative of Liberia Movement-New DEAL, and Free Democratic Party (FDP), the Alliance for Peace and Democracy (APD), comprising the Liberian People’s Party (LPP), the United People’s Party (UPP), and the Action for Democracy and Development (ADD). The group’s spokesman, Sando Wayne, II, made the disclosure last Tuesday at a press conference in Monrovia.Spokesman Wayne said it is 12 years since the end of the civil war and the return to democratic rule, but the situation in the country remains precarious.Recounting what he called the failure of the Unity Party-led administration Mr. Wayne believes it is an indication that the UP is not capable of creating wealth, jobs or growing a middle-income society as it had promised.“There is widespread corruption in high places compared to the past. The educational system is a mess, with 62 percent of Liberian youth in school yet 82 percent never completes the 12th grade,” he stated.With all these bad results, the state of impunity continues to undermine peace building, national healing and reconciliation, said Wayne. “Moreover, with the increased economic activities in Liberia, it is painful to note that we have not balanced our budget in the last three years and poverty still remains our greatest enemy, particularly among the youth, who comprise 70 percent of the under-35 population and 88 percent of the unemployed,” Wayne said.Wayne further decried that 80 percent of Liberians are living on less than US$1.00 a day, yet “we have spent more than 280 million United States dollars on public relations, without legislative approval, as required by law.”According to him, the PCG’s investment in Liberia’s reform is more than protecting the choice of a single progressive grouping or party. “We are resolved to consolidate all the progressive actors and to seek political power and govern the country together, in 2017 and beyond.”The PCG’s quest for the presidency, Mr. Wayne said, is about protecting multiparty democracy, maintaining an inclusive society with the governing structure comprehensively decentralized, as well as a the rule-based system of justice and equality.At the appropriate time, he said, the progressives will focus on two key issues, which include the work they did from the 70s to the 90s as the Progressive Alliance of Liberia (PAL), Movement for Justice in Africa (MOJA), Liberian National Student Union (LINSU), Progressive People’s Party (PPP) and Liberia People’s Party. “We sought to reform the country, tackle corruption, and strengthen democratic institutions,” Mr. Wayne noted, adding that the Progressives are “proud of what we did in the past and will continue to do same to put our country on a democratic and prosperous trajectory.”He conceded, however, that during the 14 year civil war and national upheavals, the progressive and broad-minded Liberians were unfortunately in disarray, leaderless, disorganized, and fragmented into various splinter groups. This, he admitted, created the perfect situation for remnants of the oligarchy to regroup and rally the support of the volunteer political opportunists as an option for a viable national leadership.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Arguably they should at least have got on the scoreboard but their record signing Alexandre Lacazette missed an open goal in the first-half.The draw saw Arsenal move onto seven points, six adrift of leaders Manchester City whilst Chelsea — who for the third successive game against the Gunners ended the match with 10 players — are third, three off City.“It was about mentality and a response from our last away game,” said Wenger.“We could have won it. It was an intense game.“The battle was total. We are not in a transfer period and on the day we played Liverpool that affected us. We are all human beings.“If you play 55 games a season you can have a bad performance.”Wenger said his side hadn’t simply come to pull up the drawbridge but to try and take all three points.“We were focused and determined,” said Wenger.“We tried to play when we had the ball and we were close to winning the game. With a bit more freedom we would have won the game.“David Luiz, it looked excessive force to me, at what level did he catch (Arsenal defender Sead) Kolasinac? I don’t know.”Wenger’s Chelsea counterpart Antonio Conte refused to make a direct comment about Luiz’s sending off but queried how his side had the habit of never ending with a full complement of players against Arsenal.“David Luiz, you know very well that I don’t like to comment about the referee,” said Conte.“I don’t do it in the past, or the present. You need to see what happened before the tackle.“We have great respect for officials, but it is strange to finish a third game in a row against Arsenal with 10 men.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img1 Arsene Wenger Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger remained upbeat despite watching his side’s unbeaten Premier League run come to an end as Swansea stunned them with a 1-0 victory at the Emirates.The Gunners were frustrated by a string of fine saves from former employee Lukasz Fabianski in the Swans’ goal, and Bafetimbi Gomis’ proved the match winner five minutes from time with a back-post header.The defeat was Arsenal’s first in the league since losing to Tottenham in early February, but despite the obvious disappointment, Wenger suggested there were still positives to take from the game.“We were a bit unlucky on the goal, but guilty as well. It’s frustrating but we can take a lot of positives from tonight’s game,” said the Frenchman.“Unfortunately, these kind of games you play 20 times, you win 19 and lose once, and it was the once tonight.”Wenger pointed to Fabianski’s impressive display as a huge factor in the Gunners’ shortcomings, although he admitted his players profligacy made it easier for the Pole at times.He said: “He had a great performance, which is sometimes the case, but I felt as well that our finishing maybe made it a bit easy for him.“You have to learn from defeat but take encouragement from defeat like that.”last_img read more

The DSC501 was designed for the U.S. Navy and has also been selected for use at U.S. embassies. “We sold the first DSC501 on Feb. 28, 2001, and installed it at Washington Navy Yard,” Delta Scientific Senior Vice President David Dickinson said. “Our most recent installation is at a U.S. Air Force base in the Southwestern United States. The DSC501 will ultimately be used at every U.S. Air Force base in the world.” One of 30 kinds of Delta vehicle barriers, the DSC501 barricade is designed to stop and destroy a 15,000-pound vehicle traveling 50 mph and to survive the impact. It is set in a foundation only 18 inches deep. Delta has supplied counterterrorism barricade systems to over 160 U.S. embassies and consulates as well as those of the United Kingdom and other nations. In the United States, Delta barriers are installed at more than 110 federal buildings, including courthouses and FBI offices. More than 85 percent of U.S. nuclear power plants have Delta vehicle barricades. Delta Scientific systems are also at the U.S. Capitol, along Broadway sidewalks in New York City, and at European castles. Delta Scientific has its corporate headquarters in Valencia. Its manufacturing plant is in Palmdale. Delta also makes parking-control equipment and guard booths.

first_img Tags: allan okellocharles lukwagoKCCA FCMike Mutebinicholas kasoziShafik KagimuUganda Premier League Mutebi’s KCCA FC takes on URA FC on Wednesday. (file photo)KCCA manager Mike Mutebi says his side will treat each of their remaining first round games like a final.The Kasasiro had a number of matches postponed due to their engagement in continental football and as a result, have played five games less than most teams, but most importantly four less than table leaders Vipers.Ahead of their encounter with URA on Wednesday, Mutebi said in a prematch conference, that they will play their remaining games like their lives depended on them starting with the game against the Tax Collectors on Wednesday.“We are well prepared and I believe the lads will do all it takes to see that we do the catch up because we are now playing catch up,” Mutebi whose team ended Vipers’ unbeaten run this term with a 1-0 win on Saturday said.“It’s like a final and we are taking every game like one (final). We shall treat every game as it comes but, bottom line is we need to pick three points from each of those remaining games so we narrow the point gap between ourselves and, not only Vipers but other guys ahead of us too.”Last season, the defending champions lost 2-1 at home to Sam Ssimbwa’s charges with Shafiq Kagimu scoring both goals for the visitors.That was KCCA’s first and only defeat at home last term, but heading into tomorrow’s game, Mutebi is far from bothered insisting his team will be under no pressure.“Yeah, we lost to URA last season. It was the only team that beat us here so they do have the belief that they can do it here.“They have a coach who believes he has the capacity and the players to do it, and he knows KCCA because he was here, but for us we are never under pressure.“We don’t put pressure on players. All these players know they have a responsibility to win. URA is a good team, but i think we have quite enough in our armory so we will try to win.”KCCA welcome back Allan Okello, Nicholas Kasozi and club captain Charles Lukwago. The trio were part of Uganda Cranes team that beat Malawi 2-0 on Sunday in the Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.Although only Okello featured in that game, coming in as substitute to replace Kizito Luwagga,on his debut, Mutebi believes they’ll be a huge boost to the team.“It is a good boost, but they’ll have to show us we missed them by winning. We hope their return helps us.”Comments last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Agriculture ranks as one of the most dangerous jobs in the nation with approximately 1 in 14 farm families having to deal with a farm related injury every year. The Ohio AgrAbility Program is part of a national program that promotes independence for people in agriculture who want to continue farming after experiencing a disabling condition. Our goal is to provide education, resources, and technical assistance to those individuals and their families so they may continue to farm. The Ohio AgrAbility goal of trying to help those farmers and farm workers whom experience an injury is not limited to injuries just on the farm. The program also works with individuals injured off the farm, or experience work limitations due to an illness or other health problems.The goal at Ohio AgrAbility is to get these individuals to work on the farm in a safe manner and help them to resume their life and live as normally as possible. In order to best help, AgrAbility goes out to the farm and assesses the limitations of the farmer. From this assessment, Ohio AgrAbility aims to provide safe and practical solutions for the farmer. The amount of assistance provided by the program varies greatly. Help can range from suggesting simple changes in the farm worker’s routine, to providing assistive equipment necessary for them to continue safe farming and living, despite their limitations. Ohio AgrAbility also works to prevent secondary injuries through educational programs and by providing other safety awareness resources to farmers. Peer-to-peer programAn important part of the Ohio AgrAbility Program is the Peer-to-peer program. This program provides networking support between farmers. This program aims to provide a useful system of giving and receiving help for clients with similar injuries or limitations. This enables farmers to not only share ideas on farming with injuries, but also gives them the opportunity to help each other cope with their limitations. The Peer-to-peer program’s aspiration is to provide hope and a bright future for new and potential members who fear their career and lives are over following a traumatic injury or illness.A good example of the purpose and success of the Peer-to-peer program can be seen through the story of an Allen County farmer. Jeff Austin grew up on the family farm, working with his father and great-grandfather. After graduating from high school, Jeff went on to The Ohio State University, graduating from OSU ATI with a degree in Ag Business and Swine Management. After graduation, Jeff married his wife Kristi and continued to work on the farm with his father. Jeff and Kristi have four children and like a lot of other farmers, Jeff supplemented his farm work with another job at the Lima Refinery. Jeff, along with his family, bought a farm of his own to add to his father’s operation.On July 25, 2013, their lives changed forever. Jeff had been struggling with severe back pain for the prior month and experienced a searing pain down his back and side, and even started losing feeling in his legs. A trip to the local emergency room ended with a life-flight to The OSU Medical Center in Columbus and a diagnosis of cancer on his spine, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. Jeff spent the next 6 months in and out of the hospital trying to rebuild his life and learning how to live as a paraplegic. A friend of the family, a retired OSU Extension educator from Allen County and a local Cooperative elevator, referred Jeff to the Ohio AgrAbility program.After meeting with AgrAbility’s Rural Rehabilitation Coordinator, a plan was started to help make Jeff’s life easier on the farm and get him working again. Initially, there seemed to be some apprehension in Jeff and his family’s mind about him being able to work on the farm again. A Peer-to-peer meeting was set with Bill Wilkins, a current AgrAbility member who is also a paraplegic and has been farming from a wheelchair for over 40 years. The two families met at the Wilkins farm and spent much of the day discussing farm work as an impaired worker. Jeff and his family were given hope and saw that while there were adjustments to be made, there was in fact a farming future at the end of the tunnel. Ohio AgrAbility was able to supplement resource sponsorship funds from an Ohio Attorney General grant to purchase a trailer mounted lift to help Jeff transfer from his chair to the cab of the tractor or combine. A meeting with the Austin family after the lift was delivered and installed allowed Ohio AgrAbility to see the appreciation and necessity of the Peer-to-peer Program. The program aided Jeff in his road to independence. This meeting also showed the importance of the peer program immediately after the injury and during rehabilitation. Ultimately, it allowed both Jeff and his family to adapt to a new life style. Jeff’s wife, Kristi, expressed that there is a need to be able to talk with someone whom has been through similar life changing experiences in order to learn how to cope with the new lifestyle. Peer-to-peer panel at Farm Science ReviewFind Ohio AgrAbility program at this year’s Farm Science Review, located in OSU Central.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Many opportunities are available in Ohio for farmers, land owners, and ag business folks to learn about farming practices that seek to improve the health of soil on the farm, and the quality of water that happens to leave the farm. Three are happening in the next few weeks.The Conservation Tillage Conference is March 2-3 at Ada ( The All-Ohio Chapter of SWCS has a conference March 14 at the headquarters of the Ohio Dep’t of Agriculture in Reynoldsburg ( A No-Till Field Day will be on April 6 at Dave Brandt’s farm, near Carroll in Fairfield County ( addition, County Extension Educators, Soil & Water Conservation Districts, and others host dozens of local events on cover crops, soil health, management of manure and chemical fertilizers and other conservation topics. Farmers who learn and follow the science-based practices shared at these events are leading the way toward a time when agriculture as a whole will be seen as a good neighbor.The cost of erosionRick Cruse, Professor of Agronomy at Iowa State University, found that soil erosion is costing Iowa farmers (and probably Ohio farmers) more than they think. “We’re losing much more soil than we think because not all types of erosion are part of the models that estimate soil loss. And if you want to keep soil in place, you’re not going to do it by growing only corn and soybeans, no matter how many conservation practices you use,” Cruse said. “The best science indicates that we can redevelop soil at a rate of only a half-ton per acre per year.”Yet most agencies consider five tons per acre as acceptable, or tolerable. The continuing net loss of topsoil over a century or more means a tremendous loss in dollar value of crop yields. Voluntary vs. mandatoryThe Environmental Working Group (EWG) recently published an article critical of voluntary programs that have cost billions of dollars without long term benefits in water quality. EWG suggests, at least in Iowa, that all farmers be required to adopt four mandatory practices, where appropriate: grassed waterways; filter strips along all water bodies; controlled access of livestock to all water bodies; no application of manure to frozen, snow-covered, or saturated ground. EWG points out that one problem is a lot of money is spent on practices that are abandoned a few years later, canceling the benefit.An example of questionable investment might be paying farmers to plant cover crops for three years, with no requirement to continue good conservation practices. Even worse, I heard of a farmer who received over $50 per acre to plant cover crops after wheat harvest then in November plowed the ground because he said his planter would not be able to plant corn through the cover.Rick Cruse is convinced that farmers using practices that conserve soil and water resources are often at a short-term economic disadvantage. He says another issue, as stated by a farmer, is this: “On my own land, conservation is an investment. On rented land, conservation is a cost.” In Ohio and most of the Midwest, about half of farmland is rented.(Much of the information above is courtesy of Tom Buman at Agren.

first_imgFILE – In this Feb. 27, 2017, file photo, Golden State Warriors’ JaVale McGee plays during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Philadelphia. McGee will never call himself a journeyman in describing his rugged professional path. Yet McGee must not look far to find an example of someone else who has learned to thrive as a well-traveled NBA role player: just a quick glance a couple of lockers down to where Shaun Livingston dresses each night at Oracle Arena. (AP Photo/Chris Szagola, File)OAKLAND, California — JaVale McGee practices 3-pointers from all around the arch, just in case. He sits with assistant coach Jarron Collins and a laptop to study film, long after practice and his shooting workouts are complete.The 7-footer’s rugged professional path has landed him at seemingly the perfect stop: in the Bay Area with the NBA’s best.ADVERTISEMENT In Game 3 against the Spurs, McGee scored a postseason-best 16 points, all in the first half to get Golden State going as Zaza Pachulia sat out with a bruised heel. He made all seven of his shots in Game 2 of a first-round win against Portland, shooting 18 for 23 in all in the four-game sweep of the Trail Blazers.Livingston has unselfishly dealt with a diminished role, a rotation change late in the season that altered when he’s used, and then a hand injury in the first round of the playoffs.In February 2007 with the Clippers, Livingston tore three major ligaments in his knee — the anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate and medial collateral as well as his lateral meniscus, then required extensive surgery. Though the injury could have ended his career at age 21, he still believed he would play again. First he had to walk again.“Shaun, that story isn’t really the same now. He’s become a staple of this franchise, he’s helped us win a title, he’s done some great things here,” Draymond Green said. “For JaVale, it’s still fresh, to where I think it’s a great situation for him. He’s finally been put in a position where he can do what he do. He’s finally come to an organization, a first-class organization, that has embraced him for him and not tried to make him something that he’s not.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next BSP survey: PH banks see bright horizon amid dark global recession clouds Pagasa: Storm intensifies as it nears PAR Rebisco PSL Manila falls to Sarmayeh Bank of Iran for 5th loss Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games LATEST STORIES Every 18 seconds someone is diagnosed with HIV BREAKING: Cop killed, 11 hurt in Misamis Oriental grenade blast Fourteen teams between them, over 21 combined seasons. Each has found a great groove in Golden State’s rotation, called on to take pressure off the big stars while maintaining the highest level.“We just kind of follow suit, but it’s up to everybody to come in and lock in on the details. It’s the playoffs,” Livingston said. “Obviously the stars help, they get all the headlines deservedly so, but the small things, the details, that’s what we lock in at and that’s how we win ballgames.”McGee has discovered the ideal place to shine as an alley-oop specialist in a pass-happy offense, and even Stephen Curry admits it’s so easy to target the sure-handed big man perhaps the Warriors do so too often at times.“We almost get in trouble because we try to do it too much even if it’s not there, because he has the ability to catch it really anywhere around the rim, around the backboard,” Curry acknowledged. “You kind of see it developing when he gets a free lane to the rim, and as a passer in that situation literally feel the most confidence that if I just get it anywhere up there, he’ll go get it, and usually he does.”With great efficiency, too.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img Cayetano dares Lacson, Drilon to take lie-detector test: Wala akong kinita sa SEA Games Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

first_imgReuse this content Support The Guardian Twitter Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn The Indian ascetic tradition can add another name to its ranks: former Australian parliamentary secretary and ultra-marathon runner Pat Farmer, whose 4,600km “Spirit of India” run in 2016 from the subcontinent’s southern tip to Kashmir is chronicled here. That’s 80km – two marathons – a day, for 64 days. If that, often undertaken in 80% humidity, doesn’t sound masochistic enough, Farmer’s social schedule (the run is to promote girls’ education) would finish any normal man off: he attends more than 750 “events”, many on the hoof, during this time.India can’t fail to provide colour en route, but director Anupam Sharma’s nippy travelogue format is strictly passing through. Barely any Indians are interviewed about what Farmer’s feat means to them, and the alternating asphalt-pounding and meet-and-greets eventually stretch the bounds of documentary patience. Farmer himself is so indomitable – even a bout of stomach flu barely causes him to break stride – that he isn’t that compelling a subject.The closest The Run comes to an arresting subplot is with the team’s greenhorn intern Kevin, fresh out of university, who finds himself under Farmer’s cosh for failing to secure decent enough media coverage. At one point, he muses that the Aussie press would find the story more compelling if his boss died. Watching him shuffle his battered sinews across four lanes of Mumbai traffic, this seems a distinct possibility.An unfulfilled note hangs over the whole enterprise. A meeting with Modi doesn’t come through. The postscript resentfully notes that Farmer has yet to be invited to participate in bilateral trade discussions. Kevin’s insight lingers: you have to ask if Farmer found a sharp enough way to communicate the meaning of this journey. Not in this film, which doesn’t go beyond platitudes about “dreams” and “bringing the two countries closer together”, or pry much into Farmer’s seemingly bottomless obstinacy. The Spirit of India isn’t even the most hardcore thing he’s done – that would be the Pole to Pole run in 2011. Still, saying it merits A for effort feels like an understatement.• The Run is released in the UK on 6 September.

MONTREAL — Bombardier Inc. said Monday it is close to finalizing an agreement to start producing its Q400 propeller-driven airliners in Russia.[np_storybar title=”Bombardier plane orders tumble in ‘challenging year for aviation’” link=””%5DBombardier Inc. faulted a sluggish economy for a decline in new aircraft orders last year as sales of both its commercial and business jets foundered.The Montreal-based manufacturer said Monday it delivered 238 aircraft in 2013, five more aircraft than in the previous year. But new orders for its aircraft tumbled last year to 388 compared to 481 in 2012, net of cancellations.Continue reading [/np_storybar]A deal to establish a joint venture with state corporation Rostec could lead to some 100 turboprops, valued at US$3.4 billion at list prices, being built for the Russian market.The deal, which local media in Russia says will see production start this year, flows from a series of preliminary agreements signed last August.The final assembly line in Russia would complement Bombardier’s Toronto operations, where final assembly of the 70- to 80-seat turboprop currently take place.Bombardier Aerospace announced last week the permanent layoff of 1,700 employees, primarily in Montreal and Wichita, Kan., where it makes jets, as it steps up efforts to cut costs amid delays with two new aircraft and a tough market for both commercial and business planes.The Q400s are used by airlines around the world, including Toronto-based Porter Airlines and WestJet’s new Encore regional service and Air Canada-affliated Jazz.Bombardier spokesman Marc Duchesne wouldn’t confirm details of the agreement, but said it would include a firm order from Rostec for up to 100 planes that would involve Russian leasing company Ilyushin Finance Co.“Discussion between Bombardier and Rostec are ongoing and both sides are working toward the conclusion of a definitive agreement and things are going very well but we need a couple of more days just to finalize the details,” Duchesne said in an interview Monday.The Moscow Times quoted a Russian government official saying at the World Economic Forum in Davos that a deal had been signed and a Bombardier representative confirming the planes would be built in Russia’s Ulyanovsk region, about 900 kilometres east of Moscow.Analysts said the agreements are designed to deepen Bombardier’s roots in Russia by “locking in” the Russian market for the Q400 against its main rival ATR.They also had said the Russian agreements could “revitalize” the Q400, whose orders have been lagging.Bombardier delivered 29 Q400s and received 17 net orders last year. That compares to 36 deliveries and 50 net orders in the prior year.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Bombardier’s shares gained one cent at $3.87 in Monday morning trading. read more

TORONTO — Bell Media has cut 80 full-time positions in its latest round of layoffs, citing an “industry-wide challenging advertising market.”The multimedia giant said Wednesday that the affected positions represent a cross-section of its areas of business: including local radio and TV; sales, research and revenue management; marketing and communications; network operations; and news.Jacqueline Milczarek, who has worked as an anchor on CTV News Channel since 2007, is among the public faces hit by the cuts.Other on-air talent who were laid off include CHUM-FM host Amanda Logan and BNN anchor and correspondent Chitra Nawbatt.“The difficult decision was made as the result of continued financial pressure in relation to the industry-wide challenging advertising market for radio and TV,” said Bell Media vice-president of communications Scott Henderson in an email.In June, Bell Media announced it would cut 120 positions across its television operations due to the tough advertising market as well as falling subscription revenues.Henderson said the 80 jobs chopped on Wednesday were “new and additional,” not a part of any previously announced cuts.Last week, “etalk” host Tanya Kim and The Movie Network personality Teri Hart were laid off as part of the first round of job losses. read more

first_img‘DEEP DISAPPOINTMENT’ has been expressed at draft redress legislation aimed at securing medical and community services for survivors of Magdalene laundries.Justice for Magdalenes Research (JFMR) has said the Heads of Bill falls short of what was recommended by Justice John Quirke.The group has also raised concerns for survivors living abroad, and said it was ‘dismayed’ at the delay in the publishing of this draft legislation.Some survivors had passed away or have required frequent hospitalisation, the group claimed.JFMR has noted that “important services” are missing from the Bill, ranging from “complementary therapies, high tech drugs and home support to assist with household tasks”.It said that the services offered less than what a medical card holder is entitled to.“The Bill also requires a GP referral for counselling, which is not necessary under the HAA card scheme,” the group said in a statement. There is no provision in the Bill for liaison officers to assist the women in accessing their entitlements, while this is a fundamental aspect of the HAA card scheme.“We are very concerned about the health and community care needs of Magdalene survivors who live abroad. Judge Quirke recommended that each of the women would have equivalent health and community benefits.”The Government has received more than a hundred applications to the redress scheme from the United Kingdom.Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald said that 754 applications have been received to date. 357 applicants have received their lump sum payment so far, at a cost of €12.8m. A further 106 formal offers have been made and letters of provisional assessment on the length of stay in a relevant institution have issued to an additional 35 applicants.Read: Government announces legislation to support Magdalene survivors >Opinion: Adoption, illegitimate children and ‘the bogey of proselytism’ in Catholic Ireland >last_img read more

first_imgThere’s apparently a strong intersection between freerunners and Super Mario Bros fans. This gym, Tempest Freerunning Academy, located in Los Angeles, has been decked out with platforms, trampolines, borders to climb on, and other hand-holds for freerunning enthusiasts to jump onto, bounce over, and spring themselves off of. The catch is that the entire gym looks like it was lifted straight out of a Super Mario game. All the way down to the pixel art question blocks and the 8-bit bricks, the entire gym is a tribute to the game and the people who love it, including the people who work and play there. The setup is also used in their Parkour 101 training class, so if you’re interested in learning how freerunning works in a geeky setting, that may be the class for you.Check out a video of the gym behind the jump.

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The reactions against the government’s ambitious mobility scheme are going to reach a climax this week, with a number of unions and sectors taking to the streets.ADEDY, the country’s largest public sector union, has announced a 48-hour strike for all public sector employees, which will take place on Wednesday the 18th and Thursday the 19th of September. The employees at insurance funds, unemployment agency OAED and the Ministry of Labor’s services are on 5-day rolling strikes as of Monday, in protest to the inclusion of 618 employees in the mobility scheme.Secondary school teacher federation OLME has also announced 5-day rolling strikes that came into effect on Monday, while private school teachers went on a 48-hour strike yesterday, before reassessing their stance. The primary school teacher union DOE has decided against OLME’s strike and instead plans to participate in the ADEDY strike on the 18th and 19th of September.The developments in the healthcare sector have prompted hospital doctors to call a three day, nation-wide strike from today Tuesday the 17th of September until Thursday the 19th of September. The doctors are protesting in reaction to the mobility scheme and upcoming hospital mergers.ADEDY’s executive committee will convene with civil servant federations on Thursday to discuss the strikes outcomes. On Saturday the 21st of September, the General Council will convene to decide upon future actions.last_img read more

first_imgLe bambou, un matériau d’avenir ?Le bambou est un matériau qui cumule les qualités. Résistant, léger, bon marché, il sert de plus en plus dans le BTP et constitue même l’ossature de villas de luxe et d’une chocolaterie à Bali.Le secteur des Bâtiments-Travaux Publics (BTP) est l’une des industries les moins durables au monde. En effet, celle-ci utilise environ la moitié des ressources non recyclables consommées sur la planète. C’est au vu de telles données que l’on vient à penser à d’autres matériaux tels que le… bambou aujourd’hui considéré comme tout à fait intéressant. A tel point d’ailleurs, que son développement devrait être abordé à l’occasion du sommet de l’ONU Rio+20.”Le bambou, qui est en fait une herbe, cumule les qualités”, explique Jules Janssen, un expert néerlandais. “Le poids d’un éléphant de cinq tonnes peut être supporté par un morceau de bambou d’une surface de 10 centimètres carrés seulement”, indique-t-il. Mais c’est peut-être encore plus la rapidité de sa croissance qui intéresse les adeptes du développement durable. Sans compter le fait qu’un bambou refera des pousses, même après avoir été coupé. L’eucalyptus, un des arbres servant à la construction qui pousse le plus rapidement au monde, “peut croître de trois à quatre mètres par an, ce qui est très impressionnant pour du bois d’œuvre”, explique quant à lui Terry Sunderland, scientifique au Centre international de recherche sur l’exploitation forestière (Cifor), basé près de Jakarta. “Mais un bambou pouvant être utilisé pour la construction croît de six à dix mètres l’an”, dit-il cité par l’AFP. C’est en Asie que le bambou est abondamment utilisé. “A Hong Kong et en Chine, ils construisent des gratte-ciel d’acier et de béton en utilisant des échafaudages de bambou”, explique un Indonésien. Mais il sert également d’échafaudages ou d’ossature permanente à des constructions durables, comme c’est notamment le cas sur l’île de Bali. Une chocolaterie de 2.550 mètres carrés tout en bambou (18.000 mètres en tout) a même vu le jour au milieu de villas de luxes vendues entre 28.000 et 560.000 euros qui utilisent le bambou du sol au plafond et d’une école, elles aussi entièrement faites de ce matériau. L’établissement scolaire, appelé “Green School” (“Ecole verte”), accueille 240 élèves qui ont classe dans des salles où même les meubles sont faits de bambou.Quelques petits défauts À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Le bambou n’a pas son pareil en tant que matériau de construction. C’est extraordinaire ce qu’il peut faire”, souligne l’Américain Ben Ripple, fondateur de “Big Tree Farms”. Son usine qui produit du chocolat biologique depuis l’an dernier, est le plus grand édifice commercial fait de bambou au monde. Lui aussi met en avant l’aspect écologique de ce type de construction. “Le bambou pousse beaucoup plus rapidement que le bois d’œuvre et ne détruit pas le terrain sur lequel il est cultivé. Notre usine peut être démontée et déménagée en quelques jours. Si nous décidons de la fermer, on pourra le faire sans avoir endommagé les rizières où nous nous trouvons”, explique M. Ripple.Il reconnaît toutefois deux défauts au bambou : il a tendance à pourrir s’il est exposé à l’eau et il est facilement inflammable. “Il lui faut un chapeau, un imperméable et des bottes”, ironise Ben Ripple, restant cependant optimiste : “Nous recherchons actuellement des matériaux non toxiques qui pourraient assurer une protection”.Le 17 juin 2012 à 14:13 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgThe nonprofit owner of Clark County’s only inpatient hospice care center plans to challenge an application by nonprofit Community Home Health & Hospice to build a second hospice facility in the county.Executives with Vancouver’s PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center contend the county’s population wouldn’t support a second hospice center. The hospital’s Ray Hickey Hospice House has been under capacity since its debut in 2004, according to PeaceHealth statistics.That’s a concern because hospice centers rely heavily on donations and Medicare reimbursements to stay in operation, said some local gerontology experts. “It’s competition in a world where money is already tight,” said Gail Haskett, a Vancouver gerontologist and member of the State Council on Aging. “We have no idea if Medicare is going to continue to fund hospice in the way it has.”Longview-based Community Home Health & Hospice executives maintain that the county offers enough patients for two centers. CEO Greg Pang pointed out that the county’s 70-plus population is expected to double by 2030, according to the state Office of Financial Management. The demand for services such as hospice and long-term care are expected to grown in tandem, Pang said.“I don’t think this is a zero-sum game where one loses and other wins,” Pang said. “I think both hospice centers are vital.”last_img read more

first_imgA pilot program that aims to save developers money was approved Tuesday by Clark County commissioners, even after they heard from engineers who said they would not recommend it to developers.Under the developer certification program, developers could opt out of having county staff conduct a final engineering review.That would save, for example, $4,845 for a 20-lot subdivision.However, liability would be put on the developer’s engineers.Jerry Olson of Olson Engineering said the program may leave solo practitioners or small companies unable to bid for projects as they often can’t afford $1 million in general liability insurance and $1 million in errors and admissions insurance that will be required. The county required the insurance so taxpayers won’t be on the hook for shoddy work.Olson also said he relies on the county’s final engineering review, which happens before construction starts, because private engineers aren’t as well-versed in the details of state and county codes.Thomas Dennis and Greg Jellison of HDJ Design Group shared Olson’s concerns.Jellison, who serves on the county’s Development and Engineering Advisory Board — which opposed the program — said there have been a lot of improvements at the county regarding the review process. He said county engineers have done much better at only making changes to plans to comply with codes, and not suggesting changes based on personal preference.Commissioner Steve Stuart emphasized the program, which was initiated by commissioners, was optional.Stuart asked Jellison what he would do if a developer wanted to use the pilot certification program.“We’d probably have a long discussion,” Jellison said. He said he would not recommend it.The county won’t have an approved list of engineers; any engineer licensed in the state of Washington who carries the appropriate insurance can participate. Eligible projects include short plats, subdivisions and site plans. The county would still do a construction inspection and make sure everything was in order before issuing a final occupancy permit.last_img read more

first_imgFebruary 5, 2018 This story originally appeared on PCMag Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global If you haven’t seen it by now, Amazon’s Super Bowl LII commercial is fairly clever. Kudos to the company for coming up with a fun way to mash together celebrities and Alexa without it feeling overly cheesy or trying-too-hard. More importantly, a big thanks to Amazon’s engineers who came up with an ingenious way to broadcast the “A word” without it triggering everyone’s Echos — whatever version of the device you own.The most annoying thing about watching any YouTube video or televised commercial that mentions Alexa is that it typically triggers your Echo device to get ready to respond to a query. Or worse, the person you’re watching who says “Alexa” just keeps on babbling, which then makes your Echo do something you didn’t want it to do — or just apologize for being unable to do whatever commands it tried to interpret.And since Amazon definitely wanted its Super Bowl LII to mention she-who-shall-not-be-named, and refer to her frequently, the company had to come up with a different way to do so in order to avoid hacking off everyone who already owns an Echo device.The solution? Acoustic fingerprinting.”The trick is to suppress the unintentional waking of a device while not incorrectly rejecting the millions of people engaging with Alexa every day,” said Shiv Vitaladevuni, a senior manager on the Alexa Machine Learning team, in an Amazon blog post.Though Amazon isn’t detailing the specific techniques its using to keep your Echo from triggering from its Super Bowl advertising, Bloomberg notes that a Reddit user, Asphyhackr, might have figured out Amazon’s secret.”I did a little research tonight and found that the Echo, while it’s processing the wake word, searches the Audio Spectrum and if is significantly quieter in the area of 4000hz to 5000hz, she will not wake for the word,” Asphyhackr writes.”I found that when I analyzed the spectrum of them saying her name, the spectrums were significantly quieter in the range of 3000hz to 6000hz. In some of those recordings, those frequencies appeared to be non-existent. In others it appeared like the boosted the surrounding frequencies to make the Echo see a gap in the spectrum.”In other words, if your Echo (Best Price at Amazon) notices something strange happening in the audio spectrum, it realizes that it should ignore whatever is being said — like “Alexa.” And while this works well when Amazon has a planned announcement to make, like an advertisement, the company has to get a bit more creative when it can’t anticipate the large-scale broadcast of its digital helper’s name.”When multiple devices start waking up simultaneously from a broadcast event, similar audio is streaming to Alexa’s cloud services. An algorithm within Amazon’s cloud detects matching audio from distinct devices and prevents additional devices from responding. The dynamic fingerprinting isn’t perfect, but as many as 80 to 90 percent of devices won’t respond to these broadcasts thanks to the dynamic creation of the fingerprints,” reads Amazon’s blog. 3 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.last_img read more

first_imgThe President of Fiji, His Excellency Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konousi Konrote, today brought home Fiji Airways’ newest A330 to Fiji.Rapturous applause and excitement greeted the aircraft as it touched down at Nadi International Airport and taxied up to the airline’s Hangar facilities. Fijian Prime Minister Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama and other Government Ministers joined Fiji Airways staff to welcome the aircraft.A traditional Rotuman ceremony of welcome was accorded to His Excellency the President, who stepped off the A330 as its first official guest. The aircraft has been christened ‘Island of Rotuma’, following Fiji Airways’ naming convention for its fleet after Fiji’s islands.His Excellency the President stated: “This aircraft is more than just another addition to the fleet of our national airline. It is a symbol of a modern, progressive nation, which remains proud of its roots, culture and identity, while moving with the times to embrace the opportunities of the future.”The new A330-300, the largest in the fleet, has 289 seats in Economy and 24 in Business Class. The new plane features enhanced mood lighting, increased cargo space and a Quiet Zone in Economy Class. Other product features and configuration match the current 200-series fleet.It will be deployed largely on the airline’s busy long haul routes of Los Angeles and Hong Kong.His Excellency added: “This aircraft will bring real economic opportunities for our people, because almost sixty-five percent of all visitors who travel to Fiji travel on Fiji Airways. And the more seats we have, and the better our service and overall flight experience, the more we will be able to attract more travelers. We are competing in the premier division of air travel, and we want to win.”The Head of State also explained the significance of naming the aircraft after Rotuma: “By christening this Airbus after their [Rotumans’] island, we are honouring their contribution to our country…. I am sure that all Fijians of Rotuman descent will join the rest of the country in sharing their pride every time they see this aircraft.”The A330-300 is expected to begin commercial flights in early January.

What else do you want!” he said Asked it’s high time that Dhoni bats up the order Shastri said the captain himself will take a call on the day He said it’s time for him to enjoy the game because he had been doing “dirty work” for years “Don’t you think it is about time He has done the dirty work for donkey’s years Give him a chance to enjoy himself You are talking of probably the greatest ODI captains and players Don’t worry about MS he will decide on the day whether to bat up the order” he said Shastri said that no batsman in the Indian team was in the comfort zone and they should be prepared to bat in any position “Nobody is in a comfort zone As a batsman in the top order you should be prepared to bat anywhere as the team demands Now these were unforeseen circumstances otherwise they would not have to do it… like we had to face when Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan both were injured” said Shastri The unavailability of Dhawan and Vijay in the recent Test series in Sri Lanka prompted the team management to send Cheteshwar Pujara to open the innings and he lapped up the opportunity by scoring a superb hundred in Third Test Shastri also made it clear that the five-bowler theory adopted in Test by Virat Kohli was not a permanent strategy and team combination will depend on the playing conditions and the rivals “No it (five bowler theory) is not a permanent strategy You have to respect the conditions In this game of cricket you cannot go in and say that I am going to go with this team It will backfire on you if the conditions are totally different” he said “So you might need six batsmen you might need four and a half bowlers you might need just a bowler to do the job to give the main bowlers a rest You have to play according to the conditions and play to the opposition It is important to study the opposition you are up against and then decide what should be the best combination of your team” he added Replying to a query Shastri said the most successful series for him during his tenure so far was the tour of Australia where he said players learnt hard lessons which have been put into practice by the young Indian side passionate about cricket and craving for consistency “For me the most successful tour was that of Australia I keep saying this the result was 2-0 down Then we had a great World Cup but lessons learnt in that tour was hard lessons Those lessons have been put into practice which I am really heartened by because it’s a young team the players are passionate they want to learn They don’t want to rest on their laurels and they want to be consistent” he said Shastri said he had taken up the Team Director’s assignment as a challenge and a responsibility and he wants the team to maintain consistency over the next nine months “Every assignment for me has been a big one in the last year You take it one series at a time there is no small series in world cricket today it’s just that the teams change The work ethics what you put into place to win a game all that has to be done in the same way as you do with any other team So nothing changes “I take it as a challenge It is a responsibility it is a challenge which I have never backed away from in anything I have done in life So this is no exception It is a brilliant young team You have seen the performances over the last year I don’t have to say you can judge in all formats of the game And the endeavour will be to keep that consistency going over the next eight-nine months till we are in charge” Shastri said The Team Director also said that bench strength of the senior side was very good with the players in the India A team doing well “It (bench strength) is very good I am going to have a chat with Rahul Dravid (India A coach)) sometime on Friday to find out because he is in the best position to know who are the guys who can come through the ranks The fact that the amount of cricket Rahul has played he would know quickly know who would be the bloke who could bridge the gap and make the grade (to senior India side)” he said Asked if it makes a difference that he and his support staff have been assured of their jobs till the end of World Twenty20 in March

will face eighth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki another former world No 1 (Source: Reuters) Related News By: Christopher Clarey Victoria Azarenka and Sloane Stephens have played each other in Melbourne and only in Melbourne and although the plot lines in their matches have varied greatly the bottom line has remained the same Azarenka had yet to drop a set to Stephens a younger speedier American and Tuesday’s match at the Australian Open was no different even though Azarenka is unseeded instead of grunting and gazing down from the top of the pyramid Still Azarenka ranked 44th and trying to rebound after a difficult season clearly will not remain unseeded for long if she can reproduce the level she displayed throughout this 6-3 6-2 victory over the 32nd-ranked Stephens It was a focused impressive all-court effort one in which she was turning toward the ball kids as soon as rallies ended keen to get the next point started Stephens who reached the Australian Open semifinals in 2013 before losing to Azarenka in a match that turned sour stayed with her for extended periods The quality of the exchanges was often high Stephens after all has her own point to prove She too was unseeded here after a difficult season which ended because of a wrist injury in September She too is trying to regain her career momentum and has rehired the veteran coach Nick Saviano her former mentor who helped Eugenie Bouchard of Canada make her major breakthrough last season Lacking consistency But on balance Stephens 21 again lacked the consistency and the variety required against Azarenka Although Stephens is just as powerful she is not yet as clean a hitter of the ball Azarenka who returned with her trademark aggression inflicted damage again and again with her backhand down the line and also helped her cause by showing a new eagerness to get to the net where she converted on a range of volleys It was no classic match but it was certainly a classic first-round matchup one made possible by Azarenka’s slide in 2014 which was caused by foot and knee problems and the end of her relationship with the musician Stefan Gordy Azarenka 25 spoke at length about her struggles in an preseason interview last month in Los Angeles one of her training bases But she also emphasized that she had not lost any of her appetite for the game and although she was upset in her first match of the season losing to Karolina Pliskova in Brisbane Tuesday’s performance was a different matter “A better start for me” Azarenka said “I really went for the shots and I took those opportunities that I may have not in my first match in Brisbane So that’s a little step forward” She will need to keep stepping because her draw is not getting easier In the second round she will face eighth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki another former world No 1 who reached the final of the United States Open last year and repeatedly pushed Serena Williams in the closing stretch of the season “Being an unseeded player it’s not a surprise that I have a tough draw or tough opponents in the early rounds” Azarenka said Meanwhile Stephens now 2-3 in 2015 will try to regroup “It’s the third tournament of the year” Stephens said “Long way to go and I’m obviously disappointed that I lost today but if I dwell on this in the 25 tournaments I’m going to play this year I’m probably going to suck too” The Melbourne Park public turned against Azarenka in their 2013 semifinal when she took a 12-minute medical timeout – unusually long – that many of the fans perceived as gamesmanship Azarenka has long insisted that she was truly in pain She said she took the criticism too heart crying often in her hotel room before the final and she was no crowd favorite as she eventually won the title against Li Na Nor was she a crowd favorite last year when she was beaten in the quarterfinals by Agnieszka Radwanska But there were no boos on Tuesday in Hisense Arena She and Stephens were both greeted with polite applause
