Garry MurchisonBoston’s school bus drivers are entering the most intense phase yet of their struggle against the notorious labor-busting Veolia Corporation.Four leaders of the drivers’ union, United Steelworkers Local 8751, remain fired and have exhausted their unemployment benefits. Veolia and the city of Boston have blatantly violated contract rules in giving out more than 100 summer jobs to non-union companies. The current school bus drivers’ contract expires on June 30. Hanging above everything are massive austerity cuts in education for Boston schoolchildren.Among the responses by Team Solidarity — the voice of United School Bus Union Workers — is a call for a mass rally, called Solidarity Day III, on June 30 in front of Veolia’s corporate offices.It is clear that Veolia is planning to ramp up its wholesale attack on Local 8751. The school bus drivers’ strong contract, which has evolved over 40 years and 11 strikes, is the nationwide envy of transportation unions. This in itself makes the contract and union leaders prime targets of Veolia. The local is also playing a leading role in opposing racist austerity cutbacks in public education, recently turning a school “implementation meeting” into a raucous indoor rally against the cuts.Andre FrancoisThe Boston School Department and school bus contractor Veolia are seeking to eliminate school bus rides, returning to the pre-1974, racist “neighborhood school” assignment plan and busting USWA 8751. It is part of a strategy to turn back the clock and rip away decades of anti-racist progress in Boston.It is especially outrageous that these cutbacks are happening on the 40th anniversary of federal Judge Arthur Garrity’s order to desegregate the Boston School system, using several remedies, including busing, to provide students of color access to better, more equipped schools. Some of Local 8751’s bus drivers drove students past stone-throwing white parents 40 years ago and helped organize the historic Dec. 14, 1974, March Against Racism of 25,000 people that put an end to racist mobs opposing equal education. Local 8751 continues to be involved in current community opposition to resegregation of schools.Steve GillisIf the Boston School Committee goes ahead with $107 million in education cuts, a racist student assignment plan would deny Black and Latino/a students equal access to the best schools. Over 4,500 seventh and eighth graders and many sixth graders would be pushed off yellow buses and onto the city’s mass transit system. Student safety would be sacrificed, and hundreds of school bus drivers would lose their jobs.The budget cuts would also eliminate nearly 250 teachers, classroom aides and other school-based positions. These mean-spirited cuts would cause overcrowding and the elimination of needed school programs.On May 22, parents, students, members of Team Solidarity and other labor and community activists packed a Boston City Council hearing to speak out against “neighborhood,” separate and unequal schools, as well as an end to bus transportation for thousands of young students.Hundreds of angry community activists turned out again at Roxbury’s Madison Park High School on June 2 to demand that the Boston School Committee, the City Council and Mayor Marty Walsh keep sixth – to eighth-grade students on school buses.Steve KirschbaumLong lines of impacted community members took the microphone, including two of Local 8751’s fired leaders, Garry Murchison and Steve Kirschbaum. The Boston City Council must approve a school budget by June 30, the same deadline as the school bus drivers’ contract.Community-oriented unionThe company and the Boston city establishment are very mindful of the fact that the Team Solidarity slate swept all eight elected positions on the union’s negotiating committee by a landslide, with the fired leaders topping the ballot. Veolia officials will have to sit across the negotiating table from Steve Gillis, Andre Francois, Steve Kirschbaum and Garry Murchison — the four union officers unjustly fired after Veolia locked out bus drivers on the morning of Oct. 8, 2013.Veolia is facing a highly mobilized, rank-and-file immigrant and African-American workforce that holds almost daily yard rallies for contract justice and the reinstatement of the four. “We are relying on united rank-and-file action to beat back Veolia’s attack on our contract and the community,” says Team Solidarity leader Steve Kirschbaum.At the Step 2 grievance hearing against the firings on April 14, over 150 workers marched on the corporate office and set up a virtual picket-line gauntlet. As the bosses and their lawyers inched through under heavy police escort, the message of the ranks was clear: “Reinstate our leaders NOW!” Hundreds of workers have signed up to testify that the company, not the union leaders, were responsible for the lockout in October.No negotiation meetings have yet taken place.Veolia’s labor relations officer is Thomas Hock, who was responsible for last year’s transit strikes in San Francisco/Oakland and previous strikes in Arizona, Colorado and Florida. Hock also reportedly ordered the termination of drivers at Veolia-owned SuperShuttle fleets at Baltimore and Denver airports, who were resisting wage cuts of 30 percent demanded by the company.Early skirmishes in the war known as contract negotiations were won by the union, which successfully halted the company’s bidding session on summer bus routes that was supposed to take place on June 7. The projected bids totaled over 100 fewer routes than last year. The city administration and Veolia contracted out bus services to non-union companies, a blatant job-killing violation of the current union contract and agreements with the mayor.Veolia has rescheduled the bogus bid for June 14. The rank and file have pledged to fight on to restore the “scabbed-out” work and make the company comply with all contract bid provisions.Over the past eight months, labor/community support has grown, including from the Massachusetts AFL-CIO, Greater Boston Labor Council, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 2222, Black Educators Alliance, Coalition for Equal Quality Education, radio TOUCH 106.1 and a broad spectrum of other groups.Solidarity Day III will be the third citywide, community-labor protest in support of the school bus drivers’ union and the fired leaders and against cuts in programs that benefit Boston schoolchildren. Hundreds of community and labor activists attended last year’s rallies outside the Veolia headquarters in the Dorchester section of Boston. Solidarity Day III will take place there on June 30, the day the contract is set to expire.Local 8751 has been involved in community struggles for decades, from Boston’s long struggle for equal, quality education to organizing with fast food and other low-wage workers; joining rallies demanding “Jobs not jails;” hosting trade union leaders from Columbia, Nicaragua and India; building solidarity with revolutionary Bolivarian Venezuela and Cuba; joining protests in solidarity with Palestine; marching against a U.S./NATO war in Ukraine; marching in Boston’s lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer parade; and supporting the current fight to keep Boston’s Black community radio, TOUCH 106.1, on the air.Members of Local 8751 are not only a vital source of community activism, they are the community. They are an example of how union and community can work together for the benefit of the whole working class.Participation in Solidarity III can help guarantee that USWA 8751 militancy continues into the future.

Help by sharing this information Latin America’s community radio – a key service but vulnerable News Organisation September 18, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for parliamentary enquiry into spying on journalists Intelligence chief resignsPrime Minister Beatriz Merino announced at a press conference on 17 September that the government had accepted the resignation of Alfonso Panizo Zariquiey, the head of the Peruvian intelligence service, the CNI. The government had no intention of spying on journalists, she said. Panizo will be replaced by retired general Daniel Mora Zevallos, who will be the seventh person to hold the post in two years.______________________________16.09.2003Reporters Without Borders today called for a parliamentary enquiry into alleged spying by the Peruvian intelligence agency, the Consejo Nacional de Inteligencia (CNI), on journalists working for “Ventana Indiscreta” (Indiscreet Window), a programme on the privately-owned TV station Frecuencia Latina, and journalists with other TV stations. The allegations were made by Ventana Indiscreta in a broadcast on 14 September.”The CNI’s alleged actions are serious because they jeopardise the confidentiality of sources, the cornerstone of press freedom and investigative journalism.” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to congressional president Henry Pease García.”It is unacceptable that the CNI’s chairman, Alfonso Panizo Zariquiey, should try to justify the use of totally illegal and illegitimate methods by citing the need to identify those responsible for internal leaks,” Ménard added.In its 14 September broadcast, Ventana Indiscreta showed two internal reports allegedly written by the CNI. The first, entitled “Enrique 2003” and dated 18 August 2003, indicated there was a plan to identify government employees who were supplying the press with classified information on senior CNI officials. It contained details (background, qualifications, address, phone numbers and e-mail addresses) of members of the Ventana Indiscreta team headed by Enrique Flor Zappler and it accused Flor Zappler of hiring private security companies with a judge’s complicity to tap the telephones of senior CNI officials and other officials.The second report, entitled “Enrique II,” covered the CNI’s surveillance of Flor Zappler and said there had been a “detailed investigation” of incoming and outgoing calls from the Ventana Indiscreta offices. Cecilia Valenzuela, the programme’s presenter, said the following journalists had also been subject to surveillance: Cesar Hildebrandt, presenter of the programme “La Boca del Boco” (The Wolf’s Mouth) on Frecuencia Latina; Juan Carlos Tafur, editor of the daily Correo; and Jaime de Althaus, presenter of the news programme “La Hora N” on the cable TV station Canal N.In an interview carried by the daily El Comercio on 15 September, CNI chairman Panizo Zariquiey acknowledged that the reports shown on the TV programme were authentic when he said his intelligence agency did not want to target the press but just wanted to identify which of its employees were guilty of leaking information.”The reports broadcast on Cecilia Valenzuela’s programme were leaked by employees of this agency who want to have my head and destabilize the CNI,” Panizo Zariquiey said on Canal N. He also announced there would be an investigation into those who wrote the reports, and he claimed to have been previously unaware of their existence.

If home values had continued to grow at the same pace year-after-year, the median U.S. home would have been worth $214,500 at the end of 2017. However, as of December 2017, the median U.S. home was valued at $206,300 despite six years of an average annual home value growth of 5.3 percent during the recovery period after the Great Recession.According to the survey panelists home values were expected to climb 4.8 percent in 2018, with annual appreciation slowing to 3.7 percent in 2019, and 2.7 percent by 2021, before accelerating to 2.8 percent annual growth by 2022. Though the most pessimistic of them said they expected only 1.6 percent annual growth in the market, most respondents surveyed said that they expected the average annual growth rate at 3.4 percent over the next five years.When asked how the recent passage of the new tax law impacted their overall outlook for U.S. home values over the next five years, 41 percent of panelists said their outlook was more pessimistic, compared to 31 percent who said their outlook was more optimistic.The panelists said they expected bottom-third, entry-level home values to grow 6 percent in 2018, down from 8.5 percent annual growth currently but still double the expected pace of top-third annual home value growth, which is expected to be 3 percent in 2018, the survey found.

The Fair Housing Act was enacted 53 years ago.HUD said its 2021 theme, “Fair Housing: More Than Just Words,” reflects the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to advancing equity in housing and the importance of increasing public awareness of everyone’s right to fair housing.”Fair Housing Month is a time to recommit to our nation’s obligation to ensure that everyone has equal access to safe, affordable housing,” HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge said in a public address. “Unfortunately, housing discrimination still exists, from individuals and families being denied a place to call home because of the color of their skin or where they come from, to landlords refusing to allow persons with disabilities to keep assistance animals, to individuals being denied a place to live because of who they love. In this moment of unprecedented crisis, fair housing is more important than ever. 53 years after the Fair Housing Act was signed, our journey to justice in housing continues.”HUD annually hosts activities related to fair housing during the month of April. Last year’s Fair Housing Month, for example, focused on sexual harassment in housing.In the past year, HUD and its Fair Housing Assistance Program partner agencies received more than 7,700 complaints alleging discrimination based on one or more of the Fair Housing Act’s seven protected classes: race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, and disability. During that period, the categories with the highest number of complaints were disability and race, respectively, according to a press release from HUD, which said it also received complaints that alleged lending discrimination as well as numerous complaints from women who faced unfair treatment, including sexual harassment.”Although the Fair Housing Act became law in 1968, we still have major challenges ahead of us,” said Jeanine Worden, HUD’s Acting Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.“This April, on the 53rd anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, HUD is renewing its commitment to level the playing field so every person has the same opportunity to live where they choose and benefit from all of the opportunities this nation offers.”Fudge’s full remarks are featured in the video below: Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / D&I / HUD’s Fair Housing Month Theme: ‘More Than Just Words’ Print This Post Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Studies of plants growing in tundra regions have tended to concentrate either upon whole plant communities or upon the physiology and metabolism of above- or below-ground plant organs considered separately. It is suggested here that detailed physiological studies, especially of the fixation and conservation of energy, can be integrated within the framework of the life cycle of the whole plant. When combined with information on reproductive biology and population dynamics, the construction of a long term framework is possible within which short term processes involving individual plant organs can be interpreted. Tundra plants are particularly amenable to this treatment. Clear innate markers of annual growth (caused by marked seasonality in climate) and slow decomposition rates result in the preservation of records of the past history of individual plants and the populations of which they were part
FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailJonathan Daniel/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — The Chicago Blackhawks have parted ways with Joel Quenneville, the second-winningest head coach in the franchise’s history.In a press release Tuesday morning, the team announced that it has relieved Quenneville of his coaching duties and named Jeremy Colliton as its next head coach. At 33 years old, Colliton is now the youngest head coach in the NHL.“This was an extremely difficult decision, given our respect for Joel and all that he has brought to the Chicago Blackhawks organization the last 10 years,” Blackhawks President and CEO John McDonough said in a statement.Quenneville, 60, came on board as the Blackhawks’ head coach in 2008. Since then, the team has posted a record of 452-249-96 in 797 games. Under his leadership, Chicago has made it to the playoffs nine times and has won three Stanley Cups — in 2010, 2013 and 2015. With a record of 76-52, Quenneville holds the best playoff record in the team’s history.“His leadership during three Stanley Cup championships speaks for itself and there is no way to adequately express what he has meant to this organization,” McDonough said. “He will always be a significant member of the Blackhawks family.”But last season, the Blackhawks failed to advance to the playoffs for the first time in a decade, with a record of 33-39-10, which put them in last place in the Western Conference’s Central Division. The team’s slump appears to be continuing this year as they hold the second-worst record in the division at 6-6-3.“[A]s we look to a future history not yet defined, we believe the change we made today, will provide the Chicago Blackhawks a critical element in achieving our goals of Championships in the future, including this season,” Blackhawks Chairman Rocky Wirtz said in a statement.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

The Shwe gas project, which comprises the development of three offshore Myanmarese fields, has been in production since July 2013 ONGC Videsh to make additional investment in Shwe gas project, offshore Myanmar. (Credit: Stephen Marrable from Pixabay) ONGC Videsh is set to make a new investment of $121.27m for the further development of the Shwe gas project offshore Myanmar following approval from the Indian Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs.The company, which is the overseas division of India’s state-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), has been a participant in the gas project since 2002.A consortium of companies from South Korea, Myanmar, and India has been involved in the Shwe gas project, located in the Bay of Bengal. Also part of the project is GAIL, which is another Indian state-owned company.The Myanmarese project is operated by South Korea-based POSCO DAEWOO and the other partners apart from the Indian duo are Myanma Oil and Gas Enterprise and Korea Gas Corporation.The first gas from the offshore gas asset was drawn in July 2013. Plateau production at the Shwe gas project was achieved in December 2014.According to the Indian government, ONGC Videsh had injected $722m till 31 March 2019 in the project.Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s official website stated that the additional investment will help in strengthening energy bridges with the country’s neighbours.The Prime Minister website stated: “The participation of Indian PSUs in oil & gas exploration and development projects in neighbouring countries is aligned with India’s Act East Policy, and also part of India’s strategy to develop Energy Bridges with its neighbours in addition to further strengthening India’s energy security needs.”Details of the Shwe gas projectLocated in Blocks A-1 and A-3, the Shwe gas project is contained in water depth ranging between 85m and 140m. The project, which is off the coast of Rakhine State, comprises the development of the Shwe, Shwe Phyu, and Mya fields.The three Myanmarese fields have a combined estimate of 4.5 trillion cubic feet of gas in reserves. The fields are being developed in three phases.In September 2019, McDermott International announced winning of a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract from Posco International for the third phase of the gas project.
Production from BM-C-33 block will be sent to an FPSO moored at the site The development concept for BM-C-33 project will involve an FPSO moored at the field. (Credit: wasi1370 from Pixabay) Equinor and its partners have sanctioned the development concept for the offshore Brazilian gas and condensate block BM-C-33, which will involve the use of a floating production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO).The BM-C-33 block is located in the Campos Basin pre-salt region. It contains the Pão de Açúcar discovery, which was made by Repsol Sinopec Brasil in 2010.Equinor is the operator of the BM-C-33 block with 35% stake, while Repsol Sinopec Brasil holds a 35% stake. The other partner in the offshore Brazilian block is Petrobras with a 30% stake.Equinor projects senior vice president Geir Tungesvik said: “BM-C-33 is a key project in our portfolio and concept select is an important milestone in our effort to mature the project.“It is important to further optimise and improve the project business case to make it more robust for future market.”According to Equinor, production from BM-C-33 block will be sent to the FPSO moored at the site. The FPSO will process gas and oil/condensate to sales specifications before they are exported.Crude oil from the BM-C-33 project will be offloaded using shuttle tankers and shipped to the international market following ship-to-ship transfer.Equinor said that the partners have selected a new-build hull to accommodate 30 years lifetime of the field.The Norwegian company said that the gas export solution of the project is based on an integrated offshore gas pipeline, which will connect the FPSO to a new dedicated onshore gas receiving facility to be located inside the Petrobras TECAB site at Cabiúnas.From the Petrobras TECAB site, the gas will be sent to the domestic gas transmission network.Equinor said that capacity for gas export is planned for 16Mm3/day with average exports estimated to be 14Mm3/day. The company said that the daily oil processing capacity of the FPSO will be 20,000m3.Equinor Brazil country manager Veronica Coelho said: “BM-C-33 holds substantial volumes of gas. A completion of the ongoing liberalization of the natural gas market in Brazil in line with the current plan, is key for the further development of the project.“BM-C-33 is an asset that can generate value for the society, both through the creation of direct and indirect jobs, ripple effects, and through a gas supply that can induce industrial growth, as has happened in other countries.”The Brazilian block is located nearly 200km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro state, and is contained in water depths up to 2,900m.It is estimated to hold resources of over 700 million barrels of light oil and three trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of gas.
The Cuppers competition upto this point has been unpredictable and as we head towards the semi-final stage we can recap on what has happened thus far in the tournament and also look ahead towards the final matches.Last year’s finalists, Queen’s, have put up a strong challenge thus far, with a confident victory over Brasenose getting their challenge off to a good early start.Perhaps the most impressive achievement in the tournament has, however, been that of Worcester who have got two teams through to the quarter finals. The first squad was tipped to make that stage, and victories over Wadham, Wolfson and Magdalen proved those predictions to be correct. The victory against Magdalen was particularly notable given the strength of their opponents; McTaggart and Thompson had proved a great doubles’ combination.However for Worcester seconds to progress so far has been something of a revelation. A victory over an understrength Exeter side was perhaps expected but to beat the tradtionally strong New College in the last 16 was certainly a turn up for the books.Looking ahead to the final stages there are three teams that stand out.Last year’s winners St Catz have looked strong so far as they cantered to a series of victories; don’t bet aginst.Queen’s also look a strong force with a squad of Carpenter, Grainger, Bowden, Hazzard and Pickles a match for anyone.However Worcester 1 look to be the best pick as they have the deepest squad and having failed to mount a strong challenge last year they will be keen to impress in 2007’s competition.Although the weather hasn’t helped this year, watch out for cuppers to dominate the end of term.Stuart Williamson
Family members, including Corinthian Hammond’s grandmother, Patricia Hammond, center, gather at a vigil Tuesday on the beach at Ninth Street in Ocean City, NJ.Family and friends of Corinthian Hammond gathered on the beach at Ninth Street in Ocean City on Tuesday afternoon near where the 14-year-old Philadelphia boy presumably drowned on Sunday evening.They came to remember a young man who loved football and basketball, who always wanted to play, and who “would help anybody” in the words of his grandmother, Patricia Hammond.“I’m going to miss him,” Hammond said. “God bless him.”Hammond’s body had not been recovered at the time of the vigil, and the family was anxious to reach closure, wondering when and where Hammond might be found.They also asked questions about how the tragedy transpired.Corinthian Hammond, 14, of the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia is the presumed victim of a drowning in Ocean City, NJ. Photo courtesy of WPVI-TV, 6 ABC.A first-hand account from 10-year-old Jaquil Hunter describes a classic recipe for disaster: non-swimmers, unprotected beach, unfamiliar waters, a rising tide, a couple of waves and a strong rip.Hunter said he was with Hammond and one other boy swimming not particularly close to the Ninth Street jetty when they started to get pulled out to sea. He said Hammond was hit by a couple of “big waves” and pushed closer to the beach.The surf zone at Ninth Street beach is marked by sandbars and gullies, and it’s likely that Hammond was pushed into deeper water closer to shore in a gully. As he went under, a rip near the jetty would have carried his body back out to sea.Hunter said the third boy had a boogie board but was unable to help the other two. They were unaccompanied by adults in the water. Low tide on Sunday was about 3:30 p.m. — the water would have been rising for more than three hours.Ocean City Beach Patrol lifeguards described arriving to a scene that included 14 swimmers in distress — many of whom had tried to assist in the rescue of the three.Tasha Hammond, mother of Corinthian, participates in the vigil.If Hunter’s account of the sequence were accurate, it appears there would be little time for a rescue before Hammond slipped under the water.The regular Ocean City Beach Patrol was off duty when the swimmers got in trouble about 6:45 p.m. (June 29). The beach at Ninth Street is clearly marked with permanent and temporary signs warning bathers that the beach is closed when lifeguards are not on duty.The lifeguards who responded were part of a Rapid Response Team that works until 8 p.m. and is able to respond by personal watercraft and ATV. The unit was dispatched after a 911 caller reported the emergency.Hammond was visiting the beach for the day from his home in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia. He has a brother and a sister, and his mother was on the beach Tuesday at the vigil.The Hammonds organized the impromptu gathering for friends and family and did not reach out to invite city officials or the community to the event.Family members are staying at a local motel as they wait for news in the search for Hammond.Searches with divers, Coast Guard helicopters, boats and patrols on the beach were conducted on Sunday evening and Monday. The intensive search was called off late Monday, but morning and evening patrols will continue to look for Hammond while the Ocean City Beach Patrol is off-duty.The surf on Sunday evening was not particularly rough, but a tropical system that could move off the coast later this week could create bigger waves and stronger currents for the Fourth of July weekend.__________Sign up for OCNJ Daily’s free newsletter and breaking news alerts“Like” us on Facebook
TORONTO (AP) — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Justin is trying reassure Canadians his plan to vaccinate them is working despite what he calls are short term delays and criticism his government is not moving fast enough. Trudeau said that while there is a lot anxiety, Canada is still on track to get 6 million doses of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines by the end of March and 20 million in the spring. He reiterated that all Canadians who want to be vaccinated will be by September.
By Stephanie SchupskaUniversity ofGeorgiaOpen the door to any Halloween party, and the basics — costumes and candy — still swirl around the room. But it’s not just kids enjoying the festivities. Increasingly, adults are adding to the dangers.“More and more adults are having Halloween parties,” said Don Bower, a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension human development specialist. “More and more adults are hosting or going to these parties. It’s becoming more common.”Parties involving adults have the usual concerns of drinking and driving. Add trick-or-treating children to the mix, and the danger is even greater. “Having kids out walking the streets and adults driving who may not be completely sober is a dangerous mix,” Bower said.With the holiday falling on Monday this year, most adults will plan their parties for the weekend. This will help alleviate the problem, he said.As in any situation, though, people who drink should find a designated driver. And those who drive should watch out for the extra children wandering up and down the roads.Safety on Halloween, however, isn’t just about the adult-children mix on the roads. For parties involving adults or children, health concerns often roll back to the kitchen.”To serve your food safely at your party, keep hot foods hot using warming trays, crock pots or Sterno cans,” said Judy Harrison, a UGA Extension food specialist. “Keep your hot food at 140 degrees Fahrenheit or above. Cold foods should be kept at 40 degrees or below.”Harrison suggests ways to hosts safely prepare party foods.To clean, “wash your hands before you prepare the food,” she said. “And make sure surfaces are clean when you prepare food for the party so there is less risk of contamination.”If you have raw meat in the kitchen, “make sure you’re keeping it separate from other food that’s ready to eat,” she said. “Use separate cutting boards for meats and ready-to-eat foods like cheese, fruits and vegetables. Or wash your used cutting board thoroughly in hot, soapy water and then sanitize it in one teaspoon of bleach in a quart of warm water or by using the sanitizing cycle of your dishwasher.”When cooking, “use a food thermometer to make sure foods you prepare are thoroughly cooked,” she said. “Meats like beef and pork need to reach 160 degrees and poultry 180. For ground poultry, the temperature should reach 165.”To chill, “make sure you keep cold foods cold,” she said. “Use a refrigerator thermometer to make sure your refrigerator is keeping food at 40 degrees or colder.”She suggests dividing foods into several small serving dishes you can store at the proper temperature until needed. “This way,” she said, “you can replace the dishes on your serving table often, to reduce the chances for contamination and the time for bacteria to grow.”Be especially mindful of temperature when serving foods such as tuna and egg salad and other salads or hors d’oeuvres that contain meat.”Don’t leave perishable foods at room temperature for more than two hours,” she said.(Stephanie Schupska is a news editor with the University ofGeorgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)

A dual degree master’s program that evolved from a partnership between the University of Georgia and the University of Padova (UNIPD) in Padua, Italy, has also led to collaborative research between the two institutions.Katrien Devos, a professor with joint appointments in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences on the UGA campus in Athens, Georgia, coordinates research on the genetics of economically important grasses, including switchgrass as a bioenergy crop, seashore paspalum as a salt-tolerant turfgrass, and millets as subsistence food crops for the developing world.Her lab also served as the proving ground for research by Fabio Palumbo, a graduate student from UNIPD, working under the supervision of professor Gianni Barcaccia. During his Ph.D program, Palumbo mapped the male sterility gene in leaf chicory to better understand the genetic bases of this reproductive barrier that acts in flowering plants and to exploit it for breeding new F1 hybrid varieties, specifically in leaf chicory. A leafy vegetable that is widely cultivated in Europe, well-known types of leaf chicory are Belgian endive, sugarloaf and Italian radicchio.Barcaccia’s lab developed plant materials and performed experiments for genomic data production, while Devos’ lab assisted with genetic mapping analysis and data interpretation, and provided significant input during the manuscript preparation for Palumbo’s research. The two institutions published a joint paper this spring that detailed the first high-density linkage map construction through genotyping by sequencing in leaf chicory. This research project was funded by an Italian seed company that collaborates with UNIPD and that now uses this information for marker-assisted selection programs.Genotyping by sequencing, also called “reduced representation sequencing,” is a technique where a fraction of the genome is sequenced. The key is to sequence the same fraction of the genome in all samples so that the results can be directly compared. The sequence data can be used to develop markers that can be analyzed for their association with traits of interest.Many of the techniques and analyses methods that the Devos Lab normally implements can be transferred to other non-model species, such as chicory.“The six months spent with Professor Devos’ group were really important. First, they helped me a lot to improve my bioinformatic skills, with a special thanks to Dr. Peng Qi for his patience,” Palumbo said. “Secondly, Professor Devos involved me in two projects; one in switchgrass and one in aspen. This mutual cooperation was really fruitful.”Because of his collaboration with Devos and her research group, Palumbo was able to characterize the putative gene and understand some of the genetic bases of this reproductive barrier that acts in chicory and other flowering plants, as well as develop molecular assays of importance for breeding F1 hybrid varieties.“It was terrific working together. We had tons of molecular data, they had strong bioinformatic skills, and by putting everything together, it was possible to achieve excellent results. That’s a brilliant example of how university collaborations should work,” he said.Devos said she was impressed with Palumbo’s “scientific drive, level of independence and work ethic.”“This particular project provided training on a technique, and knowledge on this technique has now been transferred to Padua,” Devos added.For more information about the research project, visit https://bit.ly/2KhrS29.Palumbo worked with UGA through an existing partnership between the UGA Department of Crop and Soil Sciences and the UNIPD Department of Agronomy, Food, Natural Resources, Animals and Environment in Italy. The two-year program that allows students to earn dual master’s degrees simultaneously at UGA and at UNIPD.Aaron Bruce of Lakeland, Georgia, and Samuele Lamon of Moniego Di Noale, Italy, graduated from the program this spring. They are the third and fourth students to graduate from the program.For more information about the dual degree program, see https://t.uga.edu/4Zs.
It’s a truism that consumers tend to make health and physical fitness resolutions at the beginning of the year. But did you know that many of them also make financial resolutions? After more than a month of holiday spending, consumers are eager for ways to save and are open to new resources to learn how to. In fact, the first quarter of the year typically sees peak consumer interest around savings and retirement planning. For credit unions hoping to attract new account-holders and engage existing members in 2018, the timing of these New Year’s resolutions makes January the perfect month for engaging in a content marketing campaign around savings and retirement planning. And when it comes to content marketing for credit unions, there’s nothing more effective than financial education. Why? Let’s take a look. Consumers Struggle to Save—and Financial Institutions Can HelpCurrently, more than 50 percent of Americans have less than $1000 in their savings accounts. And nearly half of all Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck, carrying credit card debt, car loans, and student loans that leave them tapped out at the end of the month. Consumers know they should be setting aside money for the unexpected, but they don’t know where to start. A National Foundation for Credit Counseling 2017 survey showed that 80 percent of Americans feel they would benefit from professional advice about basic financial issues. Consumers are displaying a strong need for financial education—and credit unions are in the perfect position to provide it. Empowered with quality financial education, consumers can take control of their finances, make more informed decisions, and, eventually, realize their financial potential. Consumers Aren’t Financially Prepared for RetirementLonger lifespans and increasing choice and control over financial services are also making retirement planning more complicated than ever before. In today’s workplace, many employees are offered the ability to participate in a 401k savings plan, in which they need to be able to contribute to the plan and make their own investment decisions over time. But many workers don’t understand what 401k plans are, or how and where to begin.A lack of knowledge about retirement planning and programs has led to a generation of retirees that just does not have enough saved. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the average annual spending by retirement-age adults is roughly $47,000, but less than half of adults 55 and older surveyed have more than $50,000 saved.Adding to this problem is that fact that younger people are often unaware of the need to save for retirement, let alone how much to save or various strategies for doing so. Without financial education, this gap in consumer knowledge can be expected to worsen over time. A Complex Consumer Financial LandscapeCompounding the issues of savings and retirement planning, consumers today also face a bewildering array of financial options. Countless financial products vie for consumers’ assets and attention: banks, credit unions, brokerage firms, insurance firms, credit card companies, mortgage companies, online payment apps, financial planners, and more. In this complex landscape, consumers feel overwhelmed, lacking both the knowledge and time to research and select the best options. Financial Education as a Content Marketing ToolWhile today’s financial landscape is a fraught one for consumers, the good news is that with a foundation of even basic financial literacy, consumers are suddenly empowered to make much more informed choices about saving, retirement planning, investing, borrowing, and more. And as trusted institutions with track records in their communities, credit unions are in the perfect position to provide this much-needed financial education for consumers. To do so, institutions should leverage the best practices of content marketing and integrate financial education into their marketing strategy.At its most essential, content marketing is the practice of creating and distributing valuable content for the purpose of both educating and helping your target consumers. Because content marketing is so helpful and valuable to consumers, it works to establish trust and credibility in your brand over time—and this is especially true of content marketing programs that are educational. In fact, one study found that consumers who engage in online learning programs are 29 times more likely to buy a product from the program sponsor, while 94 percent said they now have a more positive impression of the sponsor’s brand.When creating content for your blogs, videos, articles, and emails, then, education should be a top priority. Where are the knowledge gaps in your own consumer base? What topics are your consumers desperate to learn about? From a series of blog posts on retirement savings to a “Mortgage 101” video, content marketing that offers concrete educational value will satisfy your consumers while increasing their likelihood of coming to you for answers—and products. For credit unions, financial education represents a golden opportunity. By moving away from “salesy” marketing and product pushes and toward helping consumers develop financial skills, teaching them how to execute savings strategies, and inspiring them to make financial security a priority, financial institutions are not only helping create a stronger and healthier consumer population—they’re also building their own brands and attracting new, and more educated, account-holders. The final result is a powerful win that can’t be ignored.

Aug 19, 2009New York state requires health workers to get flu immunizationsThe New York State Department of Health has adopted an emergency rule requiring healthcare workers who have direct contact with patients to be vaccinated against seasonal and novel H1N1 influenza, the New York Times reported yesterday. The rule affects hospitals, home health agencies, and hospices but not nursing homes. The state’s largest healthcare union protested the rule, saying the policy could become punitive for workers who shun vaccination for religious or cultural reasons.http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/19/health/policy/19swine.htmlAug 18 New York Times storyH1N1 vaccine orders in northern hemisphere top 1 billion dosesA World Health Organization (WHO) official said yesterday that northern hemisphere countries have ordered more than 1 billion doses of H1N1 vaccines, Agence France-Presse reported. The WHO’s Melinda Henry said a few countries, such as Greece, Canada, and Israel, have ordered enough doses to cover their whole populations, while others, including the United States, have ordered less.http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5gdBOZC-UGXAiFXfH-TLW4JcEV_zAAug 18 AFP storyAustralian government expects first H1N1 vaccine doses next weekThe Australian government expects to receive its first 2 million doses of H1N1 vaccine by the end of next week, the Adelaide Advertiser reported today. Pregnant women, health workers, and chronically ill people will be first in line for the vaccine. It is expected that immunizations could begin Sep 7, pending approval from national health authorities. They are awaiting safety data from the vaccine manufacturer, CSL, which is also making vaccine for the US government.NIAID to launch trials of H1N1 vaccine in childrenFollowing approval from a safety monitoring panel, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said it would launch two trials of novel H1N1 vaccines in children. Plans for the trials were announced in July. The safety committee reviewed data from two adult trials that started Aug 7 and found no problems that would preclude the tests in children. One trial will test two different doses of an H1N1 vaccine, and the other will involve giving an H1N1 vaccine with seasonal flu vaccine.http://www.niaid.nih.gov/news/newsreleases/2009/Pages/H1N1pedvax.aspxAug 18 NIAID announcementBritish agency says Tamiflu plus warfarin may increase stroke riskBritain’s Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is concerned that oseltamivir (Tamiflu) may interact with the anticoagulant warfarin to increase the risk of uncontrolled bleeding and stroke, according to a report by the Daily Mail newspaper. The agency has advised health professionals to be alert for such cases. The story said the MHRA has received reports of 12 suspected adverse reactions to oseltamivir that involved interactions with warfarin.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1207513/Tamiflu-puts-600-000-greater-risk-stroke.htmlAug 19 Daily Mail reportAustralian survives near-fatal H1N1 case with help of IV zanamivirA 20-year-old Australian who has asthma survived a nearly fatal case of H1N1 flu after he was treated with an experimental intravenous form of zanamivir (Relenza), the Adelaide Advertiser reported today. The man’s lungs had filled with mucus and his stomach had shut down, ruling out treatment with oral oseltamivir, the report said. So his doctors decided to try IV zanamivir, which had to be flown in from the United States. The drug is normally taken with an inhaler.
Bangkok and Manila were also higher.In early trade, London, Paris and Frankfurt dropped on profit-taking after surging Friday. Sydney was closed for a holiday.”In the space of four weeks we’ve seen history made as the US economy posted a record number of job losses in one month, only to be followed by a record number of jobs gains in the following month,” said Michael Hewson at CMC Markets.But he added: “Despite all of the enthusiasm over last month’s jobs report it doesn’t change the fact that US unemployment is still well above post financial crisis levels, and is likely to remain so for quite some time.”‘Increased confidence’Jason Wong at BNZ markets added: “The data are consistent with activity indicators that show a recovery in activity as US lockdowns eased, following the big hole in the economy in April, and give increased confidence that activity is on a clear path upward from here as restrictions have eased further.”As Latin America experiences a spike in infections and deaths, Europe continues to reopen to some semblance of normality, providing a much-needed boost to the shattered tourism industry.Adding to the positive sentiment was news that major oil producers had agreed to extend output cuts of almost 10 million barrels a day for another month through to the end of July.The deal, which had been expected, provided further support to crude prices, which have surged over the past two months thanks to the cuts and the easing of lockdowns that has boosted demand.The agreement “is hugely positive for sentiment as the presumption is this clampdown will accelerate the rebalancing of supply and demand”, said AxiCorp’s Stephen Innes.”The recognition that the deep cuts need to continue for a month or perhaps longer shows that despite the recent surge in oil prices, the large producers remain worried about the fragile state of the oil markets.”Bloomberg News contributed to this storyTopics : Canada also reported a surprise increase in employment, confounding forecasts of a big drop.”While there are still significant uncertainties over the COVID-19 impact on corporate earnings, investors are encouraged by the reopening of economies that is likely to lead to a rebound in profitability later this year,” said Iyad Abu Hweij of Allied Investment Partners PJSC.Tokyo rose more than one percent, while Wellington surged more than three percent after New Zealand officials reported no active cases of coronavirus for the first time since the pandemic began, and said the country was free of the disease – adding that restrictions would be lifted.Hong Kong inched up for a sixth straight gain, Seoul added 0.1 percent, Shanghai closed up 0.2 percent, while Mumbai, Taipei and Singapore jumped more than one percent, with Jakarta three percent higher. A blockbuster United States jobs report that fanned optimism about the economic recovery from the coronavirus crisis helped push Asian stock markets even higher Monday, while a decision to extend production cuts provided fresh support to oil prices.As countries continue to ease lockdown measures and with trillions of dollars in stimulus and central bank support pledged, equities across the planet have surged since hitting a trough in March.And the release of data Friday showing a staggering 2.5 million US jobs were created in May – compared with an expected loss of more than eight million – added to the optimism, pushing the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 on Wall Street to within spitting distance of record highs.
Google Cloud announced the opening of its new Jakarta region on Wednesday, bringing services closer to its Indonesian and Southeast Asian consumers.The company’s Indonesia country director, Megawaty Khie, said the Jakarta region would allow businesses to comply with national regulations and ease recovery options for consumers.“We chose Jakarta as the next region because Indonesia has one of the highest gross domestic product growth [rates] in the region and is home to many of Asia’s unicorns,” she said in an online press conference, referring to large start-ups. Several companies in the country utilize Google Cloud services, including e-payment solution GoPay and telecommunication company XL Axiata.“Having Google Cloud available in the region means that we can comply with regional regulations and requirements. This also means that latency and traffic can be more manageable,” said XL Axiata chief information and digital officer Yessie Yosetya.Meanwhile, GoPay CEO Aldi Haryopratomo said the company utilized cloud computing to manage, analyze and capture data quickly for making data-driven decisions.According to a 2019 study by Boston Consulting Group BCG commissioned by Google Cloud, companies that use public cloud services could add around $36 billion to Indonesia’s GDP between 2019 and 2023. They could also create around 350,000 jobs across different industries.To help the country capture the potential, Google Cloud Indonesia plans to roll out 150,000 training labs in Indonesia this year to enable cloud computing training and certification for Indonesians.“Going into digital transformation era, Indonesia will see higher demand for digital talent, so we created this program along with other initiatives,” Megawaty said, adding that Google was also partnering with the Information and Communications Ministry in the latter’s Digital Talent Scholarship program. Indonesia is currently home to two data centers from Alibaba Cloud and Google. Meanwhile, Amazon’s cloud subsidiary Amazon Web Services revealed that it would build a data center in 2022.Topics : Indonesia’s digital economy is well on track to dominate Southeast Asia as its market value is projected to triple to US$130 billion by 2025 from $40 billion in 2019, according to the latest “e-Conomy Southeast Asia” study.The newly launched cloud platform marks the first Google region in the country and the ninth in the Asia Pacific. In total, Google Cloud has 24 regions with 73 zones in 17 countries around the globe.Google first announced the plan to open Google Cloud in Indonesia during its Cloud Summit in 2018. It plans to launch two cloud regions Asia Pacific, namely in Delhi and Melbourne in the coming years.Google Cloud Platform offers cloud computing services, data analytics, machine learning and security and management tools for businesses.
“At the same time, we get a significantly better information platform, which will give members a better overview of their pensions.”A spokeswoman for Sampension confirmed to IPE that the customers’ existing pension savings would be transferred to the pension fund, but declined to give a value of the assets.This does mean, however, a large increase in Sampension’s public sector membership. It catered for 50,000 public sector workers, not including the second tranche of army staff. In total, the pension fund administrator had around 278,000 members at the end of 2018.Sampension chief executive Hasse Jørgensen said his firm had been chosen for its competencies including low costs, high returns, efficient service and good advice. Sampension has won the contract to provide pension services to around 11,000 part-time Danish military pension scheme members from rival Nordea.The labour-market pension provider and the soldiers’ trade union the Army Constables and Corporals Association (HKKF) announced the deal, citing Sampension’s capacity to provide advice to individuals as well as the superiority of its data platform as reasons for the win.Pensions for the 11,000 new customers will come under Sampension’s administration and investment management from 1 January 2020, alongside 2,000 long-term employed constables and corporals who joined the scheme from Velliv (formerly known as Nordea Liv & Pension Danmark) on 1 January this year.Johnny Thomsen, chairman of the board of directors of the HKKF Funds, said: “One of the really decisive reasons why we have chosen Sampension is that the agreement gives us access to a competent corps of advisers who can help our members with pension issues.

RelatedPosts Aruna Quadri’s uncommon qualities stand him out, says Oshodi Quadri Aruna leads Africa to World Cup Aruna’s arrival attracted interest in Germany — TTBL Following the recurring thigh injury he sustained during the African Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Tunis at the weekend, Africa’s best ranked player, Aruna Quadri, has been ruled out of action for three weeks. This has also forced him to withdraw from the ongoing ITTF World Tour, tagged: “Qatar Open,” holding in Doha. In Tunis, the medical team of the tournament confirmed that the Nigerian had a recurring thigh injury, which he was nursing before the tournament, but further examination in Lisbon, Portugal later revealed that he suffered another hamstring injury in Tunis. The ITTF Africa Top 16 Cup runner’s up has been advised to rest while undergoing treatment. Quadri was closed to picking his tickets from the continental qualifiers in Tunis last week, but he had to withdraw from playing his last match against Tunisia’s Adam Hmam to hand the Tunisian the last ticket to Tokyo. After beating Togo’s Djouji Fanny 4-0 in the first group match, it was during the second group match against Senegal’s Ibrahima Diaw that Quadri cupped the injury, but he managed to finish the game, which went 4-2 in favour of the Senegalese. But based on doctor’s advice, Quadri had to withdraw from playing the last group match, which would have secured him a place in the Olympic Games. From all indications, it is clear that the Nigerian can still pick his spot at Tokyo based on his world rating as the 18th best player in the world. However, the Oyo State-born 2014 ITTF World Player of the Year expressed appreciation to fans across the world for their concern when he sustained he withdrew from the Olympic Qualifiers in Tunis. He said: “I want to thank my family and fans across the world for their support during this trying time. Most importantly the Tunisia Table Tennis Federation (TTTF) for their prompt response when I sustained the injury. The three weeks will help me to recover and I hope to be back for Sporting in the semifinal of the ETTU Cup early next month. Thank you and I will continue to make you proud and always give my 100 percent every time.”Tags: aruna quadriDohaITTF World TourQatar Open
Crystal Palace have completed the signing of Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha on a season-long loan deal, both clubs have announced. Zaha returns to Palace after just two appearances for United, despite costing the Old Trafford club £15million in January 2013. The 21-year-old becomes new Palace boss Neil Warnock’s first signing in his second stint in the Selhurst Park hotseat. Press Association Palace said in a statement on their website: “Crystal Palace are delighted to confirm that winger Wilfried Zaha has re-joined the club on loan from Manchester United. “The two-cap England international has agreed a deal that will see him spend the entire 2014/15 season at Selhurst Park.”
“I have selected him in spite of the fact he can only play for 20 minutes, because the rhythm of the game in the Premier League is the highest. “It’s match fitness [he needs]. It would be a better contribution if he played with the second team but I cannot do that because on Tuesday we had the match against Stoke and Wayne Rooney was injured. I had to adapt to the needs of the selection [squad].” Van Gaal was hugely relieved after a scan last week on a potential knee injury for Rooney showed there was no problem – the striker has become the key player for the Dutch manager after he chose him as his captain following the club’s pre-season tour to the USA. “Very good!” beamed Van Gaal, when asked about Rooney. “He will play.” He added: “We were in the USA when I decided to make him captain and not for one day have I regretted that. For me the most important thing is that he is captain of our team.” Van Gaal said he was impressed at the team spirit that has developed, highlighted by the Christmas party organised last week by Rooney. “It was fantastic,” van Gaal told MUTV. “Usually, I don’t use words like this, but I think it showed the cohesion in our group from both the players and staff. My wife and I enjoyed it very much. “The squad is very important, and that’s why the timing of our Christmas party was fantastic – it showed the togetherness in the squad. I think we are in a good position.” The match at St Mary’s is being built up as a battle between warring Dutch coaches van Gaal and Koeman, who fell out when they worked together at Ajax in 2004. The pair have refused to discuss their relationship but they appear to have buried the hatchet. According to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, at a recent League Managers’ Association meetings Van Gaal complimented Koeman on his work, told him: “You have a good team,” and clapped him on the shoulder. Van Gaal said Falcao’s lack of match fitness means he can only play for 20 minutes or so in the fast pace of the Premier League, and that the demands of the squad mean he has to continue in that role as cover for other strikers rather than work on his fitness. Falcao is likely to be on the bench again at Southampton on Monday and asked if the striker was happy with that role, Van Gaal replied: “I am not interested in that. He has to follow my philosophy – do you understand that? I am here because of that. Press Association Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says he is “not interested” in whether striker Radamel Falcao is happy to settle for a substitute’s role and insisted the Colombian is not fit enough to last a full match.
Without the England international, as well as a number of other players due to injury, the Gunners have still managed to seal top spot heading into 2016. Wilshere’s comeback was initially pencilled in for the new year although it is now looking like the end of February is the new target. But Wenger will not give up on the precocious talents of a player who has already picked up 28 England caps. “I am an optimist,” he replied when asked if he can rely on Wilshere given the number of injuries he has “I always think: ‘Okay, it’s true that he hasn’t played many games in recent years’. I hope at some stage that will stop because he is young and I hope I’m right. “He is a special case because he is a special talent and he comes out of the club. And he is an England international and I hope his injuries will stop at some stage.” Wilshere penned his current Arsenal contract three years ago and Wenger certainly is not ready to give up on the Stevenage-born ace. “He has two years left and I want Jack to stay here,” the Frenchman added. Arsene Wenger is willing to give Jack Wilshere extra opportunities to prove his fitness as he considers the midfielder to be a “special talent”. The Arsenal man has started just 10 Barclays Premier League matches since March 2014 as a host of injuries have kept the 23-year-old sidelined. Several ankle problems saw questions raised over Wilshere’s long-term fitness and he has yet to feature this campaign after suffering a broken leg in the final days of pre-season preparation. “When you love football and at his age, when you wake up in the morning and you can’t practice that’s terrible. “They need support and I try to give it to him. But he is strong and he is dealing with that. He started at 17 and played every single game and suddenly it stopped. So I believe that can make you stronger.” Wenger addressed the media on Wednesday ahead of Saturday’s Premier League visit of Newcastle and dismissed claims Wilshere may yet be ruled out for the entire season. That would mean he would have to sit out England’s European Championship campaign and Wenger believes Roy Hodgson’s side could yet spring a surprise in France. “They can, of course,” he replied when asked if England could win the tournament. “Why not? It’s a similar thing because not to get out of the qualification stage you really need to be suicidal because 16 teams out of 24 qualify and the best third go through so you don’t imagine they don’t qualify. “After that, who are your main opponents? Germany, Spain and France. But I don’t rule England out, but you are not the first favourites. They are in the second tier. If things go well, they have a bunch of young players.” Press Association
Press Association Arsene Wenger has suggested the Stoke supporters who directed chants at Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday will feel ashamed in hindsight. Ramsey has played in four of the past five meetings at Stoke since but on Sunday he was still booed by sections of the home support while chants about him walking “with a limp” were also directed at the midfielder. Wenger, who also thought Stoke were “very physical” in a game that featured no cards, believes those who were singing about Ramsey will feel a sense of shame after leaving the game. “I don’t listen too much. I focus on the game,” the Frenchman said. “I shut my ears and I think that’s the best way to deal with it. I don’t know what to do about it, I have no influence on it. I don’t know what generally you should do about it. “When people get together sometimes they forget their individual responsibility. Maybe when you go home and watch it on television you are less proud.” Arsenal fan Piers Morgan was more critical of the Potters’ supporters in a series of tweets he posted on social media. Shawcross was emotionally distraught after leaving the pitch in 2010 having being sent off for his challenge on Ramsey and attempted to contact him to apologise. “Sounds like Stoke fans had their brains broken same day as Shawcross decimated Ramsey’s leg. #SFCvAFC,” Morgan said on Twitter. “Please tell me I didn’t just hear Stoke fans chanting ‘Aaron Ramsey, he walks with a limp’??????” “Ramsey didn’t have to accept Shawcross’ apology any more than he had to accept my handshake. No excuse for these disgusting chants. #afc” Wales international Ramsey was part of the Gunners side that drew 0-0 with the Potters at a venue where he broke his leg in 2010 during Arsenal’s only ever Barclays Premier League win in Staffordshire. On that day in February six years ago a challenge from Stoke skipper Ryan Shawcross left Ramsey out of action for 10 months and sparked a feud between Wenger and Stoke supporters which has dragged on to this day.
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) – Former West Indies team manager, Omar Khan, has questioned the professionalism of the embattled Caribbean side, following their whitewash at the hands of England in recent One-Day International series.After watching the Windies’ capitulation in the final ODI of the three-match series last Thursday in Barbados, Trinidadian Khan said it appeared the players were not taking the game seriously.“It is really disheartening and disappointing to see the way the West Indies are playing at the moment,” Khan told the Guardian newspaper here.“The way they went about their business and I say business because this is business, sport is serious business, I looked at the body language and they did not look like professionals.“If you look at England team they came out there with a purpose and was professional, clinical. They (West Indies) looked more like models and not professionals.”West Indies lost the opening two ODIs at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium in Antigua and were hoping to rescue some pride in the final game of the series, only to suffer a 186-run defeat – their heaviest loss ever to the English in a one-dayer.Chasing a huge 328, West Indies narrowly avoided the embarrassment of their lowest ODI total at Kensington Oval when they were dismissed for 142.Only Jonathan Carter with 46 showed any enterprise as the top-order collapsed to leave the Windies languishing on 45 for six at one stage.Khan said the value of professionalism appeared to be lost on the team, with emphasis being seemingly placed on individual performances.“Our players need to understand what is professionalism, what it means to represent the people of the region, what it takes to win, the value of working together and valuing one another,” he contended.“While we may have some brilliant individual performances at times, they need to understand that individual performances alone will not bring the team success. Everyone has to be on the same page.”He also argued that judging from the body language of the players, there were obviously in no frame of mind to compete against the England“The body language they put out was not good at all against the English, it was as if they were defeated from the get go,” he pointed out.“Someone needs to tell the players that body language represents 67 per cent of the communication that one sends and it is important to be positive.”
ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Fast bowling seemed to have been uppermost in the minds of the West Indies selection panel, when they chose the 13-member squad for their upcoming three Twenty20 Internationals against Afghanistan next month in St Kitts.They have chosen to rest Jason Holder, sought to give the attack an edge with the recall of Jerome Taylor to international duty and cast an eye to the future with the choice of Ronsford Beaton as the only newcomer in the squad to be led by Carlos Brathwaite.Holder has been a regular member of the T20I squad since his debut three years ago, but Courtney Browne, the chairman of the West Indies selection panel, said the lanky Test and One-day International captain has been given a break with a view to having him recharged and ready for significant ODI contests in the next two months.West Indies face a race against time to qualify directly for the 2019 ICC World Cup to be hosted by England and Wales, and the selectors clearly see Holder’s role as important to the team’s bid to avoid having to play in the qualifying tournament next year in Bangladesh.The World Cup will feature 10 teams with hosts England, and the top seven other teams in the ICC ODI Rankings on September 30 this year, earning automatic qualification with the remaining two spots being decided at the qualifying tournament.Veerasammy Permaul“He has requested a break and, after discussion with the staff, we have granted him this period to refresh himself and prepare for the upcoming ODIs against Afghanistan and India.”As a consequence of Holder’s absence, veteran fellow fast bowler Taylor gets a chance to give the selectors cogent proof that he is serious about fully resuming his international career, after he had announced his retirement from Tests and ODIs last year.Taylor has played 23 T20Is for West Indies, the last of which was against Pakistan in September 2016, in addition to 46 Tests and 85 One-day Internationals, and is part of a core of experienced players that includes veteran batsman Marlon Samuels, spinners Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine, as well as marauding batsman Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons that Browne hoped would fortify the squad in the game’s shortest format.“After the T20I series against Pakistan, we felt that it was important to keep the same group together so that the coaches can continue developing the young players,” he said. “This, coupled with the vast T20 experience of some of our senior players, can help us to build a very formidable unit.“In developing a high performance unit, there is never room for complacency and our expectation is to win against a team that is ranked lower in the ICC Rankings.”On the inclusion of Beaton, Browne said: “Our head coach Stuart Law has asked for someone who can add some firepower to the attack. We felt that Ronsford has shown he can bowl with sustained pace in T20 cricket and we are confident he will do very well.”The 24-year-old Beaton has not quite lived up to the promise he showed as a precocious teenage fast bowler and has grabbed 31 wickets from 36 T20 matches, most of which have been for either the Guyana Amazon Warriors or Trinidad & Tobago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League.Raymon ReiferAll-rounder Jonathan Carter, who was part of the training squad named ahead of the T20I series against Pakistan in April, was left out, along with opener Andre Fletcher and left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul, but have been named in a 12-member, Ashley Nurse-led WICB President’s XI squad that will play a warm-up match against the Afghans before the start of the T20I series.“This is an opportunity for the experienced players to restate their desire to represent West Indies again by way of performance and the inexperienced players to show their ability at a higher level with a view to being considered for selection in the future,” said Browne.Nicholas Pooran, whose participation in the last regional season hit a snag, when he chose to play in the Bangladesh Premier League and was subsequently suspended by the WICB, is one of the players named in the President’s XI squad.Afghanistan famously beat West Indies, by six runs, the last time both sides played in a T20I, at the World T20 last year in India before Darren Sammy’s side moved on to win the tournament.Squads:WEST INDIES: Carlos Brathwaite (captain), Samuel Badree, Ronsford Beaton, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Jerome Taylor, Chadwick Walton, Kesrick WilliamsWICB PRESIDENT’S XI: Ashley Nurse (captain), Jonathan Carter, Johnson Charles, Sheldon Cottrell, Miguel Cummins, Andre Fletcher, Delorn Johnson, Kyle Mayers, Veerasammy Permaul, Nicholas Pooran, Raymon Reifer, Devon Thomas.ITINERARYMay 30: WICB President’s XI v Afghanistan – Warner Park, St KittsJune2: 1st Twenty20 International – Warner Park3: 2nd Twenty20 International – Warner Park5: 3rd Twenty20 International – Warner Park
After being swept by No. 5 Oregon over the weekend, USC is on a skid unlike any the team has experienced all season. Seven consecutive losses, spanning the entire month of May, put the Trojans under .500 for the first time in 2012. The Trojans have lost 10 of their last 12 games and 14 of their last 17. Since they opened the season 12-3, the Trojans have gone just 10-21 to bring their overall record down to 22-24 (7-16 in Pac-12 play).Solid effort · Freshman pitcher Stephen Tarpley pitched well against the Ducks but was unable to lead the Trojans to a victory. – Luciano Nunez | Daily TrojanThis weekend epitomized the recurring problems the Trojans have faced all season: decent pitching plagued by anemic hitting. The Trojans scored eight runs over the three games against the Ducks and have plated just 13 on their seven-game skid.On Sunday against the Ducks the Trojans’ short-lived 1-0 lead was the result of an error. Freshman second baseman Andres Rodriguez knocked a double with two outs in the second, but only scored because Oregon shortstop J.J. Antobelli couldn’t handle a ground ball by senior centerfielder Garret Houts.The Trojans returned the favor in the fourth. Freshman pitcher Stephen Tarpley walked the first two batters of the inning to put runners on first and second. The Ducks attempted a sacrifice bunt, but the Trojans’ hurried throw to first was wild, tying the game and allowing all runners to advance an extra base.Tarpley showed good mental grit to get out of the ensuing second and third with just the one run allowed. And USC looked to be in the driver’s seat when senior first baseman Matt Foat hit his third home run of the season in the fifth, a two-run shot to give the Trojans a 3-1 lead.But Tarpley and the Trojans fell apart in the sixth. A leadoff walk followed by a double, RBI single and a sacrifice fly tied the game and chased Tarpley from the mound. Senior Brandon Garcia came on to stop the bleeding, but a bunt single gave the Ducks a 4-3 lead.The Trojans threatened in the top of the eighth, putting runners at the corners with one out, but they were stranded. The Ducks tacked on two more in the bottom of the inning to cruise to a 6-3 win.Such seemed to be the story for the Trojans on Saturday and Sunday as well. USC jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning on Saturday, but the Ducks plated a run in the second, third and fourth to jump in front 3-1 and went on to take a 4-2 victory.On Friday USC fell a run short of an impressive comeback against Oregon pitcher Alex Keudell and lost 4-3.Just a month ago, when the Trojans were 19-10 coming off a thrilling series win against a talented Cal team that is fighting for a postseason berth, USC was eying a shot at its first postseason appearance since 2005. That appears to be squarely out of the question now, especially with their last two Pac-12 series coming against top-15 teams in Arizona and UCLA.
Facebook Twitter Google+ The Orange’s special teams should again be one of the best units in the country. SU brings back punter Sterling Hofrichter, first-team All-American and Lou Groza Award-winning placekicker Andre Szmyt and Sean Riley — who averaged 18.6 yards per return last year. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe two transfersFormer Michigan State wide receiver Trishton Jackson is listed as a starter in the most recent depth chart, rising above the likes of spring football starters redshirt sophomore Cameron Jordan and junior Nykeim Johnson. Jackson made his Syracuse debut in the 2018 Camping World Bowl against West Virginia, catching a touchdown pass on the first play of the fourth quarter in the back corner of the end zone. After a year off from game action, Jackson might be the Orange’s No. 1 wide receiver come Aug. 31.But Jackson’s fellow transfer, former Oklahoma running back Abdul Adams, is still listed as a co-backup to senior Moe Neal. Adams missed most of spring practice and the spring game with a shoulder injury. Adams shares the role with bruising sophomore Jarveon Howard. It was unlikely for Adams to dethrone an established back like Neal, but both running backs should get a good amount of handoffs in 2019. Adams had already demonstrated his prowess as a running back, scoring two powerful touchdowns on eight carries while, like Jackson, making his SU debut in the bowl game. Lining upAiron Servais, a redshirt junior and likely SU’s best offensive lineman, is back to center in the most recent depth chart after playing at right tackle throughout the spring. This is likely due to the arrival of graduate-transfer tackle Ryan Alexander from Southern Alabama. Alexander is now listed as the backup to freshman Anthony Red at right tackle. He’ll likely take over the starting job before the season opener, allowing Red to take a season to develop. Redshirt freshman Carlos Vettorello is still listed as the starter at left tackle after playing the position in the spring. With Servais’ move back to the interior of the line, redshirt junior Sam Heckel has flexed from center to left guard while redshirt senior Evan Adams has locked down the right guard spot. By the opener, SU’s offensive line is likely to consistent of Vettorello, Heckel, Servais, Adams and Alexander. Another year, another linebacking coreSyracuse graduated its top two tacklers — linebackers Ryan Guthrie (107) and Kielan Whitner (100) — from the 2018 team. Their combined 207 tackles were a quarter of SU’s team total. Vying to replace the two are seniors Andrew Armstrong and Lakiem Williams, sophomore Juan Wallace and touted freshmen Mikel Jones and Lee Kpogba. Armstrong and Williams are currently listed as the starters, holding their spots from the spring. Armstrong is the most experienced of SU’s linebackers and saw the most time last season, recording 45 tackles and snagging an interception. He’s played in 37 games, making one start last season at Pittsburgh. Wallace and Williams played mostly on special teams last season. Both were newcomers to SU — a freshman and transfer, respectively — but even their limited experience gives them an edge against the two four-star freshmen, Jones and Kpogba. Secondary shuffleAs expected, senior cornerback Chris Fredrick is listed as a starter. His backup, however, is a bit surprising. Scoop Bradshaw, a starter at cornerback for most of his career at SU, is now listed as a second-stringer. Bradshaw had a rough second half of 2018, struggling with injuries and, at times, mental mistakes. As of now, he’s lost his starting job to Trill Williams — who is now listed as the starting nickel back. The other corner position on the current depth chart is held by Ifeatu Melifonwu. Williams and Melifonwu, both sophomores, were pushing Bradshaw and Fredrick for snaps last season and when Bradshaw started to falter, Williams plugged right in. Melifonwu likely would’ve played more, but was slowed by injuries late in the season.The starting trio of cornerbacks is likely fluid, but Bradshaw is currently on the outside looking in entering fall camp.Other notesAntwan Cordy, who is still on Syracuse’s roster and eligible for a sixth year, is not on the newest depth chart. Cordy began last season as the starting nickel back and played 10 games before taking time away from the team for personal matters at the end of last season. However, this summer Cordy has been working out with teammates in Syracuse. Comments Syracuse football released its 2019 media guide — including an updated depth chart — two weeks ahead of the opening of fall camp on Aug. 2. Since spring football, SU had made some slight tweaks, providing a look into which players SU will send out against Liberty on Aug. 31.

James ‘Smitty’ Smith The Miami Beach Police Department paid tribute to the city’s first black police officer, James “Smitty” Smith. To the city, he was Major James W. Smith.Officers and family members joined together Wednesday for the renaming of the Miami Beach Police Department’s community room in Smith’s honor.Smith was remembered as the epitome of a gentleman and a man who respected everyone in his community.When Smith enlisted in 1964, he caught the public’s eye for his skin color. Smith was Miami Beach’s first black officer during a soon-to-be integrated but racially-tense America.Smith served in the Miami Beach Police Department until 1990, when he retired. He climbed the ranks as sergeant in 1971, lieutenant in 1975 and major in 1989.Smith died Jan. 31 at the age of 87.
The local forecast calls for rain throughout the weekend beginning Saturday afternoon, so the highly anticipated matchup of Clayton Kershaw and Doug Fister — as well as that between Zack Greinke and Max Scherzer on Sunday — is in jeopardy.Both teams received permission from Major League Baseball to add a 26th player to their roster Saturday. That’s a bit easier for the Nationals, whose Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse, N.Y. is a mere 1 hour and 15 minutes away by airplane. Oklahoma City, which is also in the middle of a homestand, is more than twice that distance from Nationals Park.So, Saturday should be an adventure. Friday was something of an adventure, too.The light banks first went dim in the bottom of the fourth inning with the Dodgers leading 2-1 on the strength of a two-run home run by Adrian Gonzalez. One hour and 20 minutes later, the lights were back on and play resumed.After a mere nine minutes of baseball, the lights went out again and didn’t come back on for another 40 minutes. WASHINGTON, D.C. >> Center field at Nationals Park is dotted by a pattern of off-brown discolorations, a visible reminder of the Taylor Swift concerts here Monday and Tuesday. A technical malfunction Tuesday briefly trapped Swift at the end of a catwalk in the middle of her performance. Friday’s game between the Dodgers and Washington Nationals offered a reminder of that, too.The game was suspended after five innings due to repeated power outages in a pair of light banks above the third-base line.The Nationals will be leading the Dodgers 3-2 when the game resumes in the top of the sixth inning at 2 p.m. Eastern Time (11 a.m. Pacific) on Saturday. The regularly scheduled game between the Dodgers and Nationals will begin 20 minutes after the first game ends, or at the originally scheduled time of 4:05 p.m. ET, whichever is later. The Nationals needed only 12 minutes to take a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning on a two-run home run by Yunel Escobar. Then the lights went out again.“After the first one, I don’t think anybody knew quite what was going on,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “After the second one, they felt they kind of knew. They basically told us if it happened again, we were going to finish it Saturday.”Dodgers starter Mike Bolsinger actually returned to the mound after the initial delay, with one out in the fourth inning, then retired Tyler Moore and Michael Taylor without issue.“When the lights are fully on,” Bolsinger said, “maybe I need glasses, but I can barely see the signs already. When they dim down like that, it’s easier to see to me.”During the delay he signed autographs for fans, threw lightly in the bullpen, and tossed a baseball at the Nationals’ mascot. Signing autographs, Bolsinger joked, “was a good way to keep my arm loose.”When the game was called just before 11 p.m. local time in Washington, the players seemed happy to get a chance to start over — with a full bank of lights.“It’s a great day to play two,” said Dodgers infielder Justin Turner. “One and a half, yeah. I’m just glad they’re not making us start over.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error

There is usually a scoreboard. But on Thursday there was none.By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” The Wellington High School girls softball team opened the 2013-14 campaign Thursday at Worden Park. But the new scoreboards were a no show.Worden Park is getting two new scoreboards for the east varsity and junior varsity softball fields. The new scoreboards will look basically the same but will have LED bulbs which will be more energy efficient and provide more light to the board.Wellington City Director of Public Works Jeremy Jones said unfortunately the swapping of the softball scoreboards didnâ€™t get done in time. The new brackets to hold up the scoreboard were still in need of getting installed before the new boards was to be put in place. Jones said the city was waiting for a dry enough day to do the scoreboard swapping.â€œWeâ€™ll have that done by Mondayâ€™s softball game,â€ Jones said.Â Wellington girls will be hosting Rose Hill Monday.The city of Wellington has been a busy group of workers lately. Currently, lights have been erected on the new improved Vandenburgh Ave. Also, the city expects to start putting up new lights at Hibbs Hooten Field at Sellers Park. After Monday, there will be no baseball game at home until April 28 because of the schedule. Jones said the city is looking into getting that project completed between Monday’s home game with Rose Hill and the Circle game on April 28. Close Forgot password?

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Starting next year, those pork chops on a stick can be put on your card.The Iowa State Fair says it will require all food and drink vendors to accept credit and debit cards beginning in 2020.Cash has long been the dominant method of payment for the fried cheese curds, corn dogs and other foods bought by fairgoers. Thirty ATM machines are located on the fairgrounds.But the fair recently informed vendors that they will be required to use Clover cash registers starting next year that accept credit and debit payments. They can begin using them this year.In a letter to vendors, concessions director Mike Nye says research shows people spend more per transaction when using cards and prefer cashless payment options.Fair spokeswoman Mindy Williamson says the system will still allow for cash purchases. She says the change is being implemented over two years to allow vendors to spread out expenses and train employees.
Ajax reacted to the South African Football Association disciplinary decision by announcing they will seek a court order blocking the play-offs.Ndoro played for three clubs — Orlando Pirates and Ajax in South Africa and Al Faisaly in Saudi Arabia — during the 2017/2018 season, one more than permitted by world body FIFA.The Cape Town club had seven points deducted while Platinum gained three, which reversed the positions of the clubs on the final standings.In the revised table, AmaZulu dropped out of the top eight, depriving them of a place in an eight million rand ($640,000/540,000 euros) winners-take-all knockout competition next season.Share on: WhatsApp Johannesburg, South Africa | AFP | Ajax Cape Town were relegated from the South African Premiership Tuesday for fielding ineligible Zimbabwean striker Tendai Ndoro, league officials said.The club, which has links to former European champions Ajax, had finished second last and were scheduled to play a promotion/relegation match Wednesday.Losing top-flight status is a massive blow to Ajax as the Premiership is the richest national football league in Africa with 30 million rand (about $2.4 mn/2 mn euros) prize money.Platinum Stars, who came last, will take the place of Ajax in the play-offs, a Premier Soccer League statement said.Second division sides Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos complete the mini-league line-up and the top team after a double round qualify for the 2018/2019 Premiership.
–30– WHITTIER MAN JUST MISSED WINNING A MILLION LAST YEAR WITH CALIFORNIA CHROME ARCADIA, Calif.

JOCKEY QUOTES NOTES: The winning owners are John Magnier, Derrick Smith and Michael Tabor. GARY STEVENS, TARIS, WINNER: “It was a perfect trip. It set up, the fractions were realistic and when Mike came up on the outside of me going into the far turn the pressure really picked up.“Simon has done such a good job settling her down, the question was if she could go long and she proved it today. She’d only tried going long one time but she’s always felt, to me, that she could go long.“She reminds me of Beholder. She has the same tendencies, the same high cruising speed and they’re both very intelligent. She deserved this today.” SIMON CALLAGHAN, TARIS, WINNER: “Definitely (it was a new dimension in not going to the lead). It was nice for her to do it. I was a little anxious down the backside when she just took hold of the bridle a little bit. She’s such a smart filly, she just dropped it and relaxed. I kind of knew there were no worries about the distance. I think the one time she ran this distance (sixth in the Honeybee at Oaklawn Park March 8, 2014), she got hurt after that race. It wasn’t a true reflection.“Todd Beattie who trained her before told me she would stretch out. She’s kind of an adaptable mare and like I said, she’s just a good, classy filly. Gary knows this filly, not quite as good as me, but almost. I left it to him. It was one of those races with five runners where I didn’t know where the pace would be. I thought someone might try to take us on, so we just left it to Gary to see how the race unfolded.“I think we’ll wait for the Santa Margarita in March (Grade I, $500,000, 1 1/8 miles on March 19).” DRAYDEN VAN DYKE, BIRDATTHEWIRE, SECOND: “I was completely taken out by Santiago (Gonzalez, on Oscar Party, whose rein broke going into the first turn). I didn’t know what was happening at first. He came flying by me, which made my horse get really rank. Poor Santiago though, it wasn’t his fault but I got stuck outside of him and he was way out there.“If that hadn’t happened I would have been sitting perfect, right in behind the four that were up front; I would have been cruising. I would love another shot at riding her; it’s a shame that today turned out like it did because I think she would have run much closer to Taris.“I think the only difficult part about riding Birdatthewire is down the lane. She likes being out in the middle of the track but you’ve just got to let her do her thing.” TRAINER QUOTES -30-
An 18-year-old was on Wednesday remanded to prison when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to face a murder charge.Nelson CambridgeNelson Cambridge, a miner of Number 40 Village, West Coast Berbice, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan. The charge stated that between November 29 and November 30, 2019 at George Creek, Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni), he murdered Romel Roberts.Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers stated that on November 29, 2019, the two men were “washing down” the production of the dredge when they found 4.5 pennyweight of raw gold, which they split equally.The court heard that the men subsequently began imbibing and a short while after Roberts accused Cambridge of stealing his gold. A scuffle subsequently ensued and the accused allegedly took out a knife from his waistband and stabbed the victim several times about the body before making good his escape.The injured man was picked up and rushed to the Mackenzie Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.The Magistrate remanded Cambridge to prison and the case was scheduled to continue on December 11,2019.
Here’s a cure for the anxiety of the season – the hectic shopping, messy baking and the rush, rush, rush to get everything finished by Christmas Eve.And it’s so obvious.There is nothing so calming for the faithful than spending a quiet moment – perhaps your child’s hand in yours – and gazing upon the Nativity scene. It all comes down to the newborn baby, the humble surroundings and the sheer wonder of the event.“It’s quite moving for very many people. It brings a realism of what happened. That is a special time, a special moment,” said Brian Morehead, missions director for Church at Rocky Peak in Chatsworth, which closes its 12th “Back to Bethlehem” live pageant tonight. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champThe single most enduring and endearing symbol of Christmastime is the Nativity scene, whether performed live or as a crafted ofcreated from materials ranging from delicate porcelain to brittle plastic.It so simply puts the Christ back in Christmas, even for the less-than-enthusiastic believer.In Manhattan Beach earlier this month, about 8,500 people witnessed Journey of Faith Church’s extravagant Bethlehem production, a 40,000-square-foot re-creation of the city where Christ was born. More than 170 amateur actors participated in the production, portraying the Biblical events of 2,000 years ago.“The thing we really find special is that it’s a gift to our community, there’s not even a donation box at the end,” church spokesman Jon Crowe said. “We literally want people to come have a great time with their families – a great Christmas memory – and find out the real reason for Christmas.“People for the most part are blown away seeing the entire scene played out before their eyes.” Mary and Joseph ride in on a donkey, she suffering through labor pains as he begs the innkeeper for a place to stay.“People are literally following them into the stable where the baby is born and in Mary’s hands,” Crowe said. “They’re coming out crying. Little kids are drawing pictures and leaving them for Jesus. People leave flowers, all sorts of little tokens.”At a similar pageant in Santa Claritacq per web siteCanyon Country, Bruce Walker played one of three wise men at “Follow the Star to Bethlehem,” a live drive-through pageant portraying Christ’s life that’s held each year at Bethlehem Lutheran Church. The Nativity scene is unquestionably a favorite.“It’s so spiritually fulfilling,” Walker said. “It’s what Christmas and Christian life are all about. These were real-life people.”Fifteen-year-old AJcq Ehrle played Joseph, father of the Christ child.“I feel really honored to re-enact something that’s such an amazing thing that really happened,” Ehrle said.“What you feel … wow!” added angel Kailey Letz, 11.Bill Fox, another of the wise men, and wife Linda have been involved in the pageant since the first staging 14 years ago.Linda also owns 200 Nativity sets and keeps two dozen or so about the house year-round.Among her treasures is a creche from the Caribbean, Carribbean,made craftedof egg shells. Another, from Eastern Europe, is made of red yarn. She finds them on her travels and her friends do the same, bringing her creches from all over the world.“I see them and can’t resist,” Linda Fox said. “For one thing Jesus is the main reason for Christmas and people tend to forget that. As a Christian, I want to emphasize that. I kind of do it quietly with my decorations.”At Rocky Peak, spectators walk the streets of Bethlehem and interact with some of the 240 volunteers portraying everything from the town craftsmen to the Roman soldiers. There are dancers, shepherds and the angel who announces the holy birth.And then a few visitors at a time leave the bustling town scene and visit the stable, talking with the actors portraying Mary and Joseph, and viewing the live baby in the role of Jesus.“A lot of people are moved by the baby and by Mary and Joseph telling their story,” Morehead said. “It’s very quiet. You’re seeing Jesus. That’s the special moment. That’s the Nativity.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Eunan’s can go through with a draw, but will want to show they are the better than the side which wilted so easily against Naomh Conaill last Sunday.The Glenties men were better in all departments.The Letterkenny side are once again without Rory Kavanagh who returns home next weekend, hoping the black and amber are still in the championship.A large crowd is expected for this Saturday evening clash, so supporters are warned to get to O’Donnell Park early.

HOSPITAL bosses have been given the keys to the new temporary outpatient department at Scally Place in Letterkenny.The rebuild programme at Letterkenny Hospital is underway involving a number of projects being worked on simultaneously, prioritising key patient areas.The Outpatient Department was one of the areas damaged by flood waters and Outpatient clinics were relocated to a number of different temporary locations within the hospital and around the town and county. It was decided to source offsite accommodation for the Outpatient Department (OPD) for a period of two years while the long-term plan for the restoration of the OPD onsite is progressed.Following a detailed and exhaustive evaluation process, a location was selected at Scally Place and work was undertaken to prepare it for clinical use. The building was handed over to the hospital on Monday 02 December.This week a number of clinics will relocate with the intention that by Monday 09 December all outpatient clinics that are currently offsite will run from this new location.Sean Murphy, General Manager, Letterkenny Hospital commented, “Our Outpatient Department was seriously affected by the flood waters. “We have been running up to 40 different clinics in temporary locations every week since the end of July and it has been very inconvenient for patients. It has also been inefficient as staff, records, and clinical supplies are required to move from one location to another.“I am delighted that we now have an interim location that will meet the needs of our patients and will make life easier for staff.“We are including address details for the Interim Outpatient Department in the letters we send to patients advising them of their next clinic appointment date and time. I would ask all patients to read their letters carefully and not assume that their next appointment will take place in the location where they had their last appointment.“I must stress that this is an interim arrangement only while the rebuild programme is underway at the hospital and I can confirm that OPD services will return to the hospital in due course.“We have a complex schedule of rebuild works underway at the hospital with our priority focused on the Emergency Department and the Acute Medical Assessment Unit (scheduled completion March 2014), the Pharmacy, Cardiac Investigations and Pulmonary Investigations (scheduled completion February 2014). I will keep you updated on progress on these and other projects at the hospital.” PATIENT INFO:The clinics which will run from the Interim Outpatient Department from Monday 09 December are:MedicalSurgical HaematologyRenalDiabeticENTNeurologyOrthopaedicFracture ClinicsMaxillofacialDermatologySt. Luke’sGeriatricsThe clinics which will continue to be provided from the main hospital include:AntenatalGynaecologyPaediatricsBreast ClinicsOncology‘TEMPORARY’ OUTPATIENT DEPARTMENT HANDED OVER TO HOSPITAL BOSSES was last modified: December 3rd, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Focus ControlIf you’ve yet to get the Pocket 4K, and you’re researching what else you need to purchase before you do, it’s essential to know that the camera doesn’t have continuous autofocus (as pointed out in our review). It’s a cinema camera, after all. However, it does have autofocus assist, where you can tap the focus button on the back and have the camera focus onto the area of attention. It’s useful when you’re shooting wide open in a daylight situation and you can’t quite tell if the focus peaking is where you need it — say, the center of a flower. You can quickly hit the autofocus button and, perhaps, get better focus. The problem, however, is that this feature initially only worked with native M4/3 lenses.As we read in the Metabones EF to M4/3 update, this feature now works with this Speed Booster, but it’s still unavailable on the Viltrox EF-M2 II. However, the Viltrox EF-M2 II didn’t initially support the function to control the aperture either. They have since remedied this in the 3.3 firmware update. Therefore, we could perhaps gamble and say that Viltrox may feature this in the future. But again, this camera does not have continuous autofocus, and in all likelihood, you’re not going to need the use the lens’s autofocus control.IS ControlOne of the initial drawbacks to the Pocket 4K was the absence of IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization). Many filmmakers felt that you’d be left with mediocre results if you were to combine the Pocket 4K with an older lens that also didn’t have IS. Users were worried that the slightest handheld movement would look jarring. Whether or not users still feel like that’s an issue, there’s an apparent issue with the Viltrox not recognizing the lens’s IS control.As Mattias Burling reports in his video above, he was only able to get the Tamron lens IS control to work with the Viltrox EF-M2, if he downgraded the firmware to 2.3.Iris ControlWhat type of lenses are you using? If there are vintage lenses or lenses that accommodate manual iris control, then there’s little need to buy an adapter that boasts the use of electronics, as it’s just going to rack up the price of the adapter. However, I know many URSA users (like myself) who have acquired a Pocket 4K to complement the URSA as a B-cam. As such, you’re going to need a Speed Booster if you’re using lenses with an electronic aperture.The Viltrox can control a lenses aperture out of the box, but from the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K Facebook group, several users are suggesting that there’s a bad batch of Viltrox adapters floating around the marketplace, as many users have to replace their adapter due to lack of iris control. There doesn’t seem to be an official fix if your lens stops responding to the adapter. However, a few Pocket 4K users on Reddit have discussed a few fixes.I’ve had the same issue with the exact same Viltrox. The only solution is to remove the adapter and reattach it until it reads it again. As soon as you turn off the camera though, you might have to do that same process over and over. I definitely wish I hadn’t bought this adapter.And . . . Thought it was just me. I was in heaven. Worked. Then updated. Did not work. I just updated again today to the latest. Worked for three seconds. I am going to go back to the original firmware. A lot of people having luck with that.Certainly not words comfort.Image QualityPerhaps the most crucial element of buying any peripheral that’s going to sit between your lens and your sensor is the quality that it will produce. Or more correctly, how it will affect the quality of the image. Again, like the aperture control issue, there seems to be a hit-or-miss consensus with the quality of the Viltrox adapter. The effects include a soft image, aberration, distorted bokeh, and hazing. In the video below, Thomas Shomo shares his experience working with the Viltrox EF-M2.Bluntly named “Viltrox EF-M2 for Blackmagic Pocket 4K: Why You Shouldn’t Buy It,” Thomas certainly demonstrates some issues that can cause headaches in the long run. Unlike many other videos that have expressed dissatisfaction with the Viltrox EF-M2, Thomas also compares the imagery with a Metabones adapter so we can compare the results.Image by Thomas Shomo.You can see a drop in sharpness when using the Viltrox. This is primarily where the extra bucks go when you’re paying for a Metabones Speed Booster.After reading the article above, it’d be easy to think I’m just going to save for a Metabones Speed Booster. But if you’re on a budget, you can work around the issues of the Viltrox adapter. In this video, Areia Creations introduces a few solutions to some of the visual problems caused by the adapter, such as adding cloth to the inner housing of the adapter to stop the flaring, or adding tape to the back of the adapter for a more snug fit against the Pocket 4K. There are always workarounds to budget accessories.I remember in 2010, when I first paired a T2i/550D with RØDE’s first video mic, the automatic gain control from the camera was so awful, it made listening to dialogue unbearable. And to fix this (following Dave Dugdale’s advice), I had to download a 19kHz sinewave tone to my iPod, buy a y-splitter cable, and have the tone fed to the right channel and the video mic to the left channel. In post, you’d then have to disable the right channel and replace it with the microphone information from the left channel. The process was tedious, sure. And I didn’t get the same quality audio as I would have recording into a separate field recorder. But I didn’t have the budget for a field recorder, so I made it work.While the Viltrox adapter isn’t going to give you the same results as the Speed Booster that costs three-to-four times as much (nor is it built as well), it’s still going to give you consistent results to work with until you can upgrade. Alternatively, if you do have the finance available for the Metabones brand, it may be best to wait until the official Metabones BMPCC4K adapter has been released.Looking for more articles on video gear?

However, if you have migrated from another camera system and don’t intend on replacing all of your lenses, you’re going to need a mount adapter. There are plenty of (dead) mount adapters on the market (for under $50) that will allow you to transition your Nikon lens to an M4/3 mount, quickly. (But this usually means losing access to all lens electronics, correct focal distance, and full sensor coverage.) Therefore, I’m solely going to be looking at which Speed Booster is the perfect adapter for your Pocket 4K.At the moment, there’s a battle between Metabones or Viltrox. Well, actually, I’m not going to waste your time. The Metabones M4/3 Speed Booster wins. The renowned brand was always going to beat the budget counterpart. You get control over all electronic lens functions, they’re well built, and they boast impressive image quality. Of course, this isn’t even acknowledging what Speed Boosters are known for — focal reduction and increased lens speed.Although the Viltrox adapter costs just a fraction of the Metabones Speed Booster, the proverb “you get what you pay for” certainly applies. Before we take a look at the Viltrox adapter, let’s quickly run through recent Metabones news relating to the Pocket 4K.At this point in time, there isn’t a Pocket 4K-specific Speed Booster on the market. Adapters for EF/Nikon/Sony to M4/3, yes. But not for the Pocket 4K. If you have recently visited the Metabones website to find adapters that are compatible with the Pocket 4K, there are three announcements relating to the camera.The EF to M34 adapter has a Pocket 4K update. There’s a Pocket 4K adapter in the works, and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Speed Booster won’t work on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K.Do you know that popular .gif from The Hangover where Alan is counting cards?That’s how I felt when I was digesting that information — because on the surface, everything contradicts everything else. It’s only when you break it all down that you see three separate adapters are being highlighted. Let’s take a look at the announcements.First, the EF to M43 update announcement:Metabones® releases firmware version 3.1 today, adding autofocus support to Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. The intent is not to replace, but to supplement focus-pulling in cinematography. There is no continuous autofocus, but one-shot AF is activated by pressing the focus button on the back of the camera. It may take a couple of seconds or more to lock, and if used during filming will cause visible disruption in the footage. Use it before recording commences and we recommend manual focus during recording.I cover this feature fully below, but briefly, the Pocket 4K, when connected with the EF to M34, would only be able to control the aperture, not the focus assist. The latest firmware update will now allow you to use the focus button on the pocket 4K. Be sure to download that if you’ve recently acquired the EF to M43 Metabones Speed Booster.New adapter & BMPCC update:There will be new Pocket 4K Speed Boosters® with new optics specifically optimized for the unique characteristics of the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. We will disclose details in a separate announcement. Each Speed Booster® is designed specifically for the filter stack of the sensor. The existing Speed Booster® XL 0.64x and Speed Booster® ULTRA 0.71x have excellent optical properties on JVC, Olympus, and Panasonic cameras, but the forthcoming Pocket 4K Speed Boosters will work only on Blackmagic cameras.And . . .Important note: Metabones Canon EF Lens to Micro Four Thirds T Speed Booster SUPER16 0.58x (MB_SPEF-M43-BT7) is for Blackmagic cameras with Super 16mm sensor size. It is not compatible with Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K. New products designed specifically for Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K will be disclosed in a separate announcement.In the coming months, we’ll see a Metabones Speed Booster specifically designed for the Pocket 4K. And, when choosing a Speed Booster, it’s important to note that the original BMPCC Speed Booster will not work on the Pocket 4K. However, both cameras house an M4/3 mount, so why not? Well, the original pocket cinema camera houses a super 16mm-sized sensor, which is inherently smaller; therefore, it won’t correctly cover the size of the sensor.While I would recommend opting for the Metabones Speed Booster, or at least waiting until we can review the Pocket 4K Speed Booster in the future, not everyone has an extra $650 to spare for a lens adapter. That’s almost the cost of the camera itself, and there’s no harm in working around the limitations of a budget accessory, so let’s see what they are.
When I was very young, I was asked to make cold calls for the family business. I had a little experience, having made cold calls for a charity a few years earlier, but I had had no training. I was, however, provided with a set of index cards that included a script and language to “overcome” any “objections” I might receive while dialing strangers.One of the first calls I made was answered, and the person answering hung up on me. I called my leadership team and asked what I was supposed to do when someone hung up on me. I was told, “Call them right back.”That didn’t sound like a good idea. First, the person had just hung up on me. That is not a sign that someone wants to continue any kind of conversation. It’s evidence that they are quite committed to not having the conversation. Second, and more importantly, calling back means making someone who is already unhappy that you called them even more unhappy. This would be creating conflict.I called back. Indeed, the person on the other end of the phone was miffed. He was in no way impressed that I called him right back. Nor was he moved by my strategy for starting the conversation over (something that I improved over time). But he didn’t punch me in the face, he didn’t yell me, and he didn’t hang up on me. Instead, he said no to my request for a meeting. That is all there was to that call, and it was one I would occasionally have to make while prospecting.Making the call, however, had the positive effect of eliminating the potential to become conflict-averse. It also helped me come to the idea that I was a peer to my clients, not some subservient, milquetoast order-taker.Do not read anything here as a license to go create conflict. You are better off creating an opportunity to collaborate than you are creating conflict that is not necessary.That said, you are going to have to deal with conflict if you work in business. You are going to be comfortable dealing with issues and challenges where there will be disagreements. Avoiding conflict is allowing tiny monsters to blossom into gargantuan monsters.When you need to have the difficult conversation, have the difficult conversation.

The company is known to improve its stylus iteration after iteration and chances are that such may be the case with the next Note phablet as well.advertisement

zoom Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has acquired full ownership of Azalea Maritime B.V., a Dutch manning specialist.The acquisition of 100 percent ownership was completed on December 21, 2017, and Azalea Maritime B.V. changed its name to MOL Maritime (Europe) B.V. on January 1, 2018, MOL said.The company specializes in providing crews for tankers and carriers of liquified natural gas.With the move, MOL plans to bolster manning of its operated LNG carriers and tankers, the safety of operation being a top priority.“MOL Maritime (Europe) B.V. as a manning company, will continue to support MOL safe operation, while inheriting Azalea Maritime’s accumulated experience with European seafarers and know-how of the manning business,” MOL added.Azalea Maritime Agency was established in January 1997 with its headquarters in Herceg Novi – Montenegro.The Japanese conglomerate has 21 LNG carriers, 2 LPG carriers and 64 tankers in its operated fleet registered under different subsidiaries and joint ventures.The company has 14 LNG carriers under construction at Japanese, Chinese and South Korean yards, eight of them scheduled for delivery in 2018, data from VesselsValue shows.
Spring signals the start of motorcycling season in Nova Scotia. The province is once again teaming up with Safety Services Nova Scotia to promote Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and help reduce motorcycle crashes and fatalities. “We want to remind all drivers and riders that motorcycle safety is a shared responsibility,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Lloyd Hines. “A moment’s inattention on our roads can cost you or someone else their life.” Recent research by the department indicates that almost 70 per cent of motorcyclists in a collision involving a major injury or fatality were male riders over 35 years old. “Along with sharing the road, skills training and refresher courses are also crucial for motorcyclists,” said Mr. Hines. “If you’re upgrading your motorcycle or you haven’t been on a motorcycle for a while, we strongly encourage you to take a refresher course.” “Motorcycle refresher courses will help keep you safe on the road,” said Mike Tops, driver improvement manager with Safety Services Nova Scotia. “We offer courses that give you the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to get the most from your motorcycling experience.” “Last summer, there were nine motorcycle fatalities in Nova Scotia, one being my friend,” said Jimi Swinamer, president of Bikers Down Society. “We want to increase awareness on how motorists and bikers can safely share the road and encourage motorcyclists to take a refresher course.” More information on motorcycle safety and training courses can be found at www.safetyservicesns.ca.
If the issue of migration is tackled properly, citizens of developed and developing countries alike will come to understand how its benefits far outweigh the problems it may bring, the Secretary-General said in accepting the Declaration of The Hague, which was produced by the Society for International Development of the Netherlands.”Politicians have a choice to make,” he said, noting that they can embrace the potential that migrants and refugees represent, or instead use them as political scapegoats. The Secretary-General was accompanied at the Declaration’s launch by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Ruud Lubbers.Afterwards at a press encounter, the Secretary-General reiterated his challenge to world leaders not to scapegoat migrants. “For any number of illegal immigrants, there are thousands more who are in our midst legally and when we come up with laws, we have to be careful not to generalize from the particular, come up with laws that are designed to get certain individuals, but be careful that it is not applied to other innocent and law-abiding people in our midst,” he said.The Secretary-General then met with the judges of the International Court of Justice, who reviewed with him their caseload. He briefed them on his meeting with the Presidents of Cameroon and Nigeria last Friday, following the ICJ’s ruling last month on the countries’ dispute over the Bakassi peninsula.After meeting with the leaders of the UN Association of the Netherlands and thanking them for their work, the Secretary-General had a working luncheon with his Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto.On Sunday, the Secretary-General will leave the Netherlands for France.
Staff who visited the remote Fugnido camp for the first time in weeks described it as still tense, a spokesman for the agency said today. A number of refugees, mainly from minority ethnic groups who were particularly affected by the clashes in November, were found living in desperate conditions. “They lacked basic supplies and had no shelter from the severe, hot and dry weather at this time of year,” Kris Janowski said. “The visiting team immediately distributed plastic sheeting for shelter, jerry cans, blankets and basic kitchen utensils to the affected group.”The ethnic conflict, between the Anuak refugees and the Nuer and Dinka communities, left 42, mainly Dinka, refugees dead and scores wounded. Following the November clashes, aid workers were not permitted to go to the volatile camp for security reasons.On 28 December, 531 refugees were moved from the beleaguered site to Bonga refugee camp, home to nearly 17,000 Sudanese refugees of the Uduk community. Fugnido is home to more than 28,700 people and is the largest of five settlements in southwestern Ethiopia’s Gambella Region, where a total of 85,000 Sudanese are sheltered. The camp was first opened in 1988 but closed in 1991 in the aftermath of civil war that broke out in Ethiopia.
“This programme is a turning point in WFP’s food assistance operations in Iraq,” said Jane Pearce, Representative and Country Director of WFP in Iraq, adding that “we now use innovative technology to deliver a faster humanitarian response that is reliable, flexible and scalable.” These electronic cards, known as SCOPE cards, enable WFP to assist in a timely manner those in need with both cash and vouchers, allowing them to choose, and buy their own food from local shops across the country, as well as collecting actual food from WFP distribution points.“The SCOPE cards give displaced Iraqi families and Syrian refugees the assurance that they can access food when they need it,” said Ms. Pearce, adding that more importantly, “it also gives WFP valuable feedback on the types of food people are buying with the cards, which helps us better tailor our programmes to their needs.” In order to receive the SCOPE cards, people need register their personal information and fingerprints into WFP’s database, which is electronically linked to the cards.Therefore, when a card is swiped at a shop, it automatically connects to the database for identity confirmation, then the cost of the purchase is deducted from the total balance and recorded on a receipt.With the $32 million funding from the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO), WFP has launched a pilot project in Akre, in the northern Kurdish region, where thousands of displaced Iraqis and Syrian refugees are sheltering. The conflict in Iraq has triggered mass waves of displacement of more than 3 million Iraqis since January 2014. WFP is currently reaching 1.5 million displaced Iraqis and 70,000 Syrian refugees each month with food assistance.
Ukip was in a state of open civil war on Monday night after Nigel Farage publicly warned that the party will collapse unless its sole MP Douglas Carswell is thrown out.Mr Farage, the former UK Independence Party leader, said Mr Carswell had “sought to split and divide Ukip in every way imaginable” since defecting from the Conservatives to Ukip in 2014.The two men have been at odds for years over the party’s policies but their antipathy came to a head amid claims that Mr Carswell frustrated Mr Farage’s chances of being awarded a knighthood. Mr Farage and Lord Pearson – who had kept the campaign for Mr Farage’s knighthood secret – suggested the email showed that Mr Carswell had not seriously backed the honour.Mr Farage said: “It could not be clearer that Douglas Carswell was negative in his response to the chief whip. He is consumed with jealousy and a desire to hurt both Ukip and me. What a sad figure he cuts.”Lord Pearson said the comments showed that it was “pretty clear [that Mr Carswell] he did not support” Mr Farage’s knighthood.He added: “It is true that I and others tried to get a knighthood for Nigel Farage and one way or another we failed, and we still think he should have one.“I am not going to give up. I am going to go on and try to see whether we can get him a K in the Birthday honours in the summer.” But these plans were dropped when the pair realised Mr Farage would have to resign as an MEP first before being allowed to accept the peerage.Lord Pearson then approached the Cabinet Office’s Parliamentary and political service honours committee about a knighthood for Mr Farage. It turned down the application at the end of July.The peer then asked directly Mr Carswell – who is Ukip’s leader in Westminster – to approach Gavin Williamson, the Government’s chief whip, about appealing the decision to reject Mr Farage’s application.Mr Williamson – as an “official member” of the honours committee – is allowed to recommend honours to MPs who represent minor parties in the Commons. Writing in The Telegraph, Mr Farage said: “As a party, how can we let a man represent us in the House of Commons who actively and transparently seeks to damage us? “I think there is little future for Ukip with him staying inside this party. The time for him to go is now.” Ukip is already facing a crisis after the party’s leader Paul Nuttall failed to win last week’s by election in Stoke-on-Trent, an area in which people voted heavily for Brexit at last year’s referendum. I think there is little future for UKIP with him staying inside this party. The time for him to go is nowNigel Farage Douglas Carswell insisted he had supported Nigel Farage’s knighthood Nigel Farage interviewed by Piers Morgan last weekCredit:Kieron McCarron/ITV Lord Pearson asked Mr Carswell in the middle of December to approach Mr Williamson believing this offered “a sporting chance of getting around this committee”.On December 30th Lord Pearson emailed Mr Carswell saying: “Dear Douglas, Could you let me know how your talk with Gavin Williamson went before Christmas? By phone if you prefer? Good wishes. Malcolm.”Mr Carswell replied the next morning on December 31 – the day the New Year’s honours were announced – saying: “As promised, I did speak to the government Chief Whip. “Perhaps we might try angling to get Nigel an OBE next time round? For services to headline writers? An MBE, maybe?” Lord Pearson replied an hour later: “Dear Douglas, Let’s speak at your convenience. Ring me? Not sure an ‘Other Buggers’ Efforts’ quite hits the spot for Nige……..?! Malcolm”. Last week Mr Farage said he believed Ukip failed to win the Stoke by-election due to its failure to continue its strong message on migration.Now, leaked emails seen by The Telegraph show Mr Carswell mocked Mr Farage’s chances of an honour after it was turned down, saying he should be given an award “for services to headline writers”.Mr Farage said the leaked online exchange showed Mr Carswell was “consumed with jealousy and a desire to hurt me” and urged Paul Nuttall, Mr Farage’s successor, to sack him.However, Mr Carswell insisted the leaked email “confirms that I made every effort to make sure that Ukip got its fair share of peerages and honours”. Mr Nuttall declined to comment.Lord Pearson of Rannoch, Ukip’s former leader, initially tried to organise a peerage for Mr Farage, backed by Ukip peer Lord Willoughby de Broke, last July in the wake of the EU referendum. Mr Carswell insisted he had supported Mr Farage’s knighthood, and urged The Telegraph to publish his email exchange with Lord Pearson.His email showed he was “commiserating with the person who asking me to lobby on behalf of the party” on the day the New Year’s honours were announced.He said: “I would say the emails you have directly contradict those who suggest I was not trying to ensure that Ukip got its share of peerages and honours.“You cannot regard that email as anything other than being supportive that Ukip gets its fair share of peerages and honours. I am not going to say what I did or didn’t say to Gavin Williamson.“Put the email in the public domain and let readers make up their minds. It reinforces my version of events.” Lord Pearson initially tried to organise a peerage for Nigel Farage after the EU referendum in JuneCredit: EDDIE MULHOLLAND for The Telegraph Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The election is finally out of the way and the government has a big agenda ahead of it. Right out of the gates it has announced a tax review, a financial services review, a competition review, and a review of government spending. Importantly, the government has said it will consult with and wants to hear from businesses. This is a smart move – the business community does most of Australia’s employing, wholesale consuming and production, and the expectation of a Coalition victory last week was cause in itself for businesses to gain some confidence. We saw evidence of this sentiment in the most recent NAB Business Survey, which switched from a -3 confidence score on the economy to a +6 score, in the space of a month. Improved confidence is a good sign, and this new government brings the promise of change. So I wonder which changes business owners would urge on the new government if they had the access and influence. What would you say to our new treasurer, Joe Hockey, if you could spend the next month as his adviser? Don’t assume he wouldn’t listen: Joe Hockey grew up in a family of business owners and understands the issues well, which is evident in the Coalition’s commitment to reducing company tax rate by 1.5 per cent and cutting regulatory burden on business. So where would you start if you had the opportunity to speak up about red tape, competition and other issues that matter to you? Most small business owners would probably start with taxes – there’s too many of them and they’re too high. But which ones would you reduce, which would you scrap and which part of the system would you reform? Most business owners understand that the political stability and regulatory structure we operate within makes it easy and safe to do business in this country; they also know that it doesn’t come free. That means the business tax system has to raise requisite amounts of cash before it concerns itself with fairness or efficiency. It’s the same with red tape. We all want an easier way of doing business, but which red tape do we advise Joe Hockey to cut? Which ones should he streamline and which regulation is working well? Where do you stop when you cut red tape? One area a business owner might urge the treasurer into would be competition policy. Market dominance by large conglomerates can hurt smaller businesses, which generally means prices rise and choice reduces. But is there a solution when large companies dominate? It’s instructive to note that while the confidence survey found an increase in confidence due to the expectation of a new government, some of the component parts of the survey looked quite sickly. Overall business conditions were considered ‘extremely weak’ in mining, manufacturing, retail, construction, wholesale and transport and utilities, all of which scored in the negative range. There are still problems in this economy for many business owners. But which solutions would you put to the treasurer? This is probably the time to speak up. I’d love to hear your ideas. * Mark Bouris is the Executive Chairman of Yellow Brick Road, a financial services company offering home loans, financial planning, accounting & tax and insurance.

Taxe télécoms : la Commission européenne ouvre une procédure d’infraction contre la FranceFrance – Afin de compenser le manque à gagner de France Télévisions suite à la suppression des écrans publicitaires après 20h, le gouvernement a instauré plusieurs taxes. Parmi elles, celle qui ponctionne de 0,9% les recettes des opérateurs télécoms, vient d’être retoquée par la Commission européenne.Bruxelles a décidé d’ouvrir une procédure officielle d’infraction contre la France, estimant que la taxe imposée depuis mars 2009 aux opérateurs est illégale. “Non seulement cette nouvelle taxation des opérateurs ne semble pas compatible avec les règles européennes, mais elle vient frapper un secteur qui est aujourd’hui l’un des principaux moteurs de la croissance économique” a précisé la commissaire en charge de la société de l’information et des médias, Viviane Reding. Et d’ajouter que cette taxe a de forts risques de se répercuter sur la facture des consommateurs.Cette taxe télécoms ponctionne quelque 300 millions d’euros par an et la décision de la Commission européenne est bien sûr une excellente nouvelle pour les opérateurs, lesquels s’insurgent depuis des mois contre son instauration. “Alors que les opérateurs sont très attentifs à leurs dépenses en raison de la crise, cette taxe freine le déploiement du haut débit et pénalise, au-delà des opérateurs, toute l’industrie d’équipement”, souligne Yves le Mouël, directeur général de la fédération française des télécoms.Le gouvernement français dispose désormais de deux mois pour apporter les preuves de la légalité de cette taxe. S’il n’y parvenait pas, la commission européenne pourrait porter l’affaire devant la cour de justice européenne. L’État pourrait alors être contraint de rembourser aux opérateurs les sommes versées depuis le mois de mars dernier.Le 29 janvier 2010 à 16:42 • Emmanuel Perrin

Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. Most factories make use of machines in the production process and, as a result, lots of people have been put out of work. But are service-based businesses about to face a similar fate? Will you be replaced by a robot one day?That particular question has likely brought chills down many people’s spines, but could this really be the reality we’re facing? Imagine all the different kinds of service-based jobs poised to crumble because some app or robot can do the work faster than a human would.Let’s say you normally hire tutors to help your children with their homework, perhaps from a service-based business that has a good track record and high success rates among users. All of that could change in a flash with AI — in fact, that is one of the reasons why some people are scared of AI in spite of how fascinating it is.Related: Why Businesses Keep Failing to Make the Most of AIHow would you feel if your child asked help from Alexa for their homework? The virtual assistant is fast becoming a staple among homes; you surely can’t stop your child’s urge from asking, “What’s 5 minus 3?” can you?These days all the child has to do is take a picture of their math homework, and an app can instantly tell whether the answer is right or wrong. AI also allows apps to recommend courses to users based on their level of progress in those subjects, and, if that’s not enough, it also knows what kind of questions teachers give out as assignments.What is AI?Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science developed with the objective of creating intelligent machines that can mimic human behavior and the ability to make decisions. In essence, these programs are able to study our behavior and make decisions as if we’re the one making them but, of course, a lot faster.Related: 5 Future Jobs You’ve Never Heard of But That Your Kids Will Flock toSince AI “learns” our behavior, it’s not limited by the programmer’s code. So, in a sense, it’s able to grow in knowledge on its own as we keep using it.Will AI take over service-based business jobs?There have been a series of debates on whether AI will take over jobs or not. A study by Boston Consulting Group predicted that by 2025, a quarter of jobs will be replaced by either smart software or robots. Kai Fu Lee, a renowned AI expert and venture capitalist, believes that 40 percent of the jobs in the world will be replaced by robots.Without a doubt, AI is gradually infiltrating and disrupting different industries, including healthcare and banking. But you mustn’t forget that machines have their limitations. Although technology has advanced to the point that software mimic humans, they can never totally take our place. In fact, AI will help create more jobs than it seeks to eliminate. You may need to acquire new skills, but it doesn’t mean that you’ll be replaced.Related: 4 Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Shaping the Future for Businesses Big and SmallSo, in essence, even if you use AI to help your child with their homework, it will not entirely take away the jobs of tutors who will teach kids. There will still be a need for tutors to dictate what standard is expected of students — and maybe even tutors would delve into developing AI that will help tutor kids.It’s all in how you choose to handle the technological changes that come your way. Outrightly rejecting or fearing technology won’t secure your job, but if you could develop your skills and knowledge to go along with the change in technology, then there is no way you’d be out of work. The beauty of service-based businesses is their ability to easily pivot and evolve. This kind of flexibility will work in your favor with the advancement of AI. AI is artificial; it’s not naturally intelligent yet.The final verdictAI is a bittersweet topic. On one hand, it’s one of the best innovations the world has ever seen. And on the other, it could be what brings to an end a lot of businesses because it’s smarter, faster and more efficient. However, saying AI will take away most people’s jobs is an exaggeration.

Related News Several nearly deserted skywalks at railway stations across the city might sport a new look if a proposal to relocate hawkers on them by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) is approved by the civic body Rachana Sansad which is collaborating with TISS on the project has been asked to come up with an attractive design to accommodate hawkers on skywalks The study funded by the BMC is focussed on the rehabilitation of hawkers in Mumbai and as a pilot has been conducted in Vile Parle Dadar and Chembur According to estimated figures nearly two per cent of the total population in Mumbai that is around 25 lakh earn a their living from this activity “The oft-repeated argument that Mumbai is crowded with hawkers is not true if we can manage and use spaces judiciously There is enough space and it is possible to shift and relocate them keeping in mind what they sell and the areas At railway stations for instance there is a huge concentration of hawkers and that needs to be regulated Eviction is not the answer In Santacruz we found that people are actually not using the skywalk At such skywalks we can relocate the hawkers make the space more attractive by designing the seating and display aesthetically” said TISS Prof Sharit K Bhowmik who is conducting the study Using areas underneath the monorail to accommodate hawkers have also been suggested The report says areas below flyovers which are being encroached illegally by hawkers and others can be regularised This says the report will draw more people on the street and help prevent untoward incidents “At several places such as Dadar station we have seen that motorists stop to buy things from vendors resulting in traffic woes but hawkers are blamed for it Interestingly at the flower market outside Dadar station we have seen that hawkers have regulated themselves and operate in shifts Such a model can be replicated elsewhere” he said The report says while hawkers are usually concentrated in certain areas that might lead to congestion the adjoining areas can be used to spread them evenly and priority can be given to hawkers with perishable and food items by allocating them space closest to the stations Another key observation is that in places such as Chembur the hawkers operate as ‘extensions’ of shops “Such hawkers are not genuine as they have been placed there by shopkeepers for extra income and should be removed immediately This will help accommodate new ones Even the footpaths close to residential areas can be used to accommodate hawkers who sell vegetables fruits etc We have recommended that the BMC can do a survey in these areas see the demand and accordingly allow vendors to operate at a specific time and for a specific duration A similar arrangement has been made in a
