first_imgTuesday Apr 28, 2009 Tana Umaga hits hard, then sets up Jerry Collins for the try With Tana Umaga making his return to the playing field recently at Toulon, there’s been renewed interest around the world from people wondering how he’s getting on at the ripe old age of thirty five.ADVERTISEMENTAn All Black legend, Umaga coached at Toulon before making the decision to pull on the boots again and see if he can turn his side’s fortunes around.While you can’t attribute success to one player in particular, he’s done well since making his comeback, and Toulon are now looking safe from relegation so are set to spend another year in the Top 14 in France.A few weeks ago when Toulon played Montabaun Umaga made this huge hit on lockMathias Rolland. The referee penalised Umaga, saying he didn’t use his arms in the tackle. You be the judge of that.Montauban kicked over the resultant penalty, but then from the kickoff, Umaga got his hands on the ball and set up fellow All Black Jerry Collins, who sprinted over for a great try.It was an awesome sequence of play as Umaga, who clearly felt hard done by after his hit, got the final say by setting up the try, and later, winning the match 33-20.ADVERTISEMENTTime:03:12 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Located near the crossroad in the center of Hue city, Tiam was renovated from an 18-year-old house, which was in really bad condition.

It has three floors, one attic, balcony and terrace.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe first floor is for the café, which is run by the owner, and the rest of the building is for living. The vertical louvers and glass wall covering the house is like a vague partition between “in and out”, bring people inside the house closer to nature and to other people in the streets.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe louvers not only help reducing heat radiation but also create light effect and geometrical rhythm, which enhance people’s feelings every time watching, both from inside and outside.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Quang DamThe effective solution for such limited built area is to design the interior as minimal as possible, and to create continuous and open spaces. We create functional zones and place objects in order to bring members in family closer to each other, but still be able to have their private spaces if necessary.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe old and ineffective spiral staircase has been replaced by the straight one, which helps optimize spaces and achieve better circulation.

first_imgNews UpdatesPlea In Kerala High Court Seeks Details Of Number Of Vaccines Supplied To Vaccine Centers Across The State Lydia Suzanne Thomas11 May 2021 3:42 AMShare This – xImage Courtesy: Getty ImagesThe Kerala High Court took up a petition seeking the publication of data on the number of vaccines supplied to different vaccine centers in Kerala. A Division Bench of Justices Raja Vijayaraghavan and MR Anitha considered that matter today over ZOOM, ordering it to be posted on Friday for further hearing. After hearing the petitioner’s submissions, Justice Vijayaraghavan orally remarked, “they (the state government) are trying their level best. With the available resources they are doing their level best and they are improving it upon..Suo motu Devan (Division Bench of Justices Devan Ramachandran and Dr Kauser Edappagath) has taken up, Supreme Court is also considering the matter on Thursday…I’ll post it on Friday within which time Mr Sohan (the State Attorney) will come up with something”In the order, the Bench however proceeded to direct the posting of the case after a week.”We do not find any reason warranting issuance of any directions at this stage. Post after a week,” the Order reads In Court today, the petitioner’s counsel Advocate R Leela referred to instances of overcrowding at vaccine centers and averred that the same could be averted if there was data relating to the number of vaccines supplied to each vaccine center. Since the State Attorney was not present during the initial part of the hearing, Advocate K Rajkumar for the Central Government submitted that the State was allowing vaccinations only through the COWIN Portal so as to prevent overcrowding. Apart from this, the aspect of vaccine supplies was being considered by the Supreme Court in its suo motu case. Referring to the suo motu case registered to check overcrowding, taken up by another Division Bench of the Court, Advocate Rajkumar averred that everything was taken care of.Also read – When Will Kerala Get Its Share Of Vaccines? Kerala High Court Asks Centre At this juncture, Justice Raja Vijayaraghavan shared his screen, displaying the dashboard on the COWIN portal. “All that she says is – if there are so many vaccines in Kerala, why can’t you just show what is the supply … That is what she is trying to say. For instance in Ernakulam, you say there are 103 sites, 91 government sites, 12 pvt sites. Total doses is 9,03,604. We have some 3.4 crore people out here. All that she says is, where is it being supplied, …To show that on the dashboard is not a that much of a big deal (in Malayalam)” Justice Raja Vijayaraghavan continued, “Every person including me wants to know how much doses you have, when are the doses going to come and how you are going to vaccinate all these people..At least they should show that we have been allotted out of the 50% government share we have been allotted, …so people will understand how it is being sent to various places”Advocate Leela then prayed that the accurate number of vaccines in each vaccine center be published, to which the Court responded saying that the State Government would be better placed to give information in this respect. The Court therefore sought the State Attorney’s response. Around ten minutes later, State Attorney KV Sohan joined the hearing. The State Attorney submitted that the fuss around registrations for vaccines lasted only two days and that people could register to book their vaccination slots. Advocate Leela then proceeded to seek data on the number of doses being sent to each district, government and private vaccine sites, primary health centers etc. She continued, seeking that the portal show that persons allotted a particular number series would alone be administered the vaccine on a particular day. Hearing these submissions, Justice Vijayaraghavan said, “they are trying their level best. With the available resources they are doing their level best and they are improving it upon..Suo motu Devan (Division Bench of Justices Devan Ramachandran and Dr Kauser Edappagath) has taken up, Supreme Court is also considering the matter on Thursday…I’ll post it on Friday within which time Mr Sohan will come up with something” The State Attorney added to this, saying, “If the petitioner hears the daily briefing of CM…” Justice Vijayaraghavan stated, “I can’t ask her to go and hear, though I would like to, I can’t ask her to do that!” The State Attorney explained that he made this submission only because the State was functioning transparently, providing all necessary information. “We are functioning in a very transparent manner and we are giving every data, every day we are doing it”, the State Attorney said. After this exchange, the Court directed that the matter be posted on Friday.The petition filed by Prabhakaran TP through Advocate R Leela avers that the “absence of details guaranteeing the supply and availability of vaccine to fulfil the schedule of vaccination announced is creating chaos and confusion”It reads,”The act of the 1st Respondent (Central Government) in not publishing in public domain the matters relating to the production as well as vaccine quantity intended to be imported and also the calendar relating to the supply of vaccine is the blatant violation of the duty of the State towards the subjects.”Prabhakaran’s plea hence prays for the publication of the vaccine schedule, the number of vaccines available in the open market, and directions to the State of Kerala to announce a weekly-supply calendar of vaccines in all Health Centres, Covid Vaccine Centers and Private Hospitals to reduce chaos and curb spot registrations.Click here to download the orderTagsPIL COVID -19 vaccination drive Overcrowding Justice Raja Vijayaraghavan Justice MR Anitha #COWIN Kerala High Court Next Storylast_img read more

first_img Tagged: events, exhibits, ithaca, photography, we are ithaca The videos are uploaded to the project website and will also be part of an installation at the History Center.The project, “We Are Ithaca: A Celebration in Portraits” officially got started in September 2017. Over the course of a few months, there were 28 pop-up portrait sessions held in locations around Ithaca that were easily accessible. Now, the photos are visible online, in a banner on the Ithaca Commons, in a book and documentary, and were featured in a gallery at the Community School of Music and Arts.The project will also be celebrated at an event Thursday on the Commons. (Details below.)Wishna said it was truly a community portrait project, with a core team of about a dozen people. Behind the scenes at each photo session, there were four to six people helping with set up and organization. Beyond the photo sessions, the team behind the project has helped create a book, documentary, plan events and hang banners.The tagline of the project is “to celebrate our uniqueness and diversity through portraits and stories.” If people take anything from the project, Wishna said she would like people to see how alike everyone is.“We are a lot more alike than we know,” Wishna said. “I really wish, especially in America right now, that we could all recognize that and be a lot kinder to one another.”The project will also be celebrated Thursday on the Ithaca Commons during the CFCU Summer Concert Series with a performance by Fall Creek Brass Band. The first 50 people at the event will receive a free We Are Ithaca poster featuring all of the portraits. For more information, visit the Facebook event page.The “We Are Ithaca” documentary directed by local filmmaker Becky Lane will be featured later in August.Every portrait taken is now available in book format and every portrait is published in it. The book is available here online or at Ithacamade in the Dewitt Mall. Learn more about the project at the website, weareithaca.org.Featured image: Passersby walk past the We Are Ithaca banner on the Ithaca Commons on Monday. (Kelsey O’Connor/The Ithaca Voice) ITHACA, N.Y. — Through more than 1,200 portraits, local project “We Are Ithaca” has captured a snapshot of Ithaca’s rich community. The photographs and videos that have resulted from the project give a small window into the lives of hundreds of Ithaca residents.“We wanted to celebrate the town, the community, the citizens through portraits,” Robyn Wishna, project director and photographer, said. “It’s sort of an egalitarian photo project because nobody is more important than another and everybody’s going to be seen — this is a bad pun — but in the same light.”A look at the crew behind We Are Ithaca. (Provided by Robyn Wishna)It’s easy to get lost in the hundreds of portraits that were taken. About half the people photographed stood as they were, but others brought along items that represent a bit of who they are. They held items like instruments, pictures of loved ones, sports gear, art, plants, books, and all sorts of interesting items, even chickens.The full-length photographs were set up simply with bright light and a white background, letting the personalities being captured in that moment shine through.The average portrait session took a couple minutes at most. The only direction people got for the photo was where to stand.“I didn’t direct people. I didn’t tell people how to stand or what to do or to smile,” Wishna said. “I just let them be how they wanted to be.”(Provided by Robyn Wishna)After the photograph, people were invited to share something on video if they wanted and about a quarter to a third of the participants did so. Wishna said she didn’t have an initial plan for the videos, but said it was an opportunity to have all of these people on record expressing themselves. Some talked about their lives, others shared poetry or songs.“The other piece of the project is it being a snapshot of Ithaca at this point in time,” Wishna said.

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(BARABOO, Wis.) — A Wisconsin school district and local police are investigating a photo of a group of mostly white high school boys giving what appears to be the Nazi salute after it drew strong backlash on social media.The image of students in the Baraboo School District was posted on the @GoBaraboo parody account on Sunday.The tweet has since been taken down, but police and school officials promised to investigate. The photo in question is from last spring, according to District Superintendent Lori Mueller.“The school district is investigating this situation and is working with parents, staff and local authorities,” Mueller said in a statement to students and parents. “If the gesture is what it appears to be, the district will pursue any and all available and appropriate actions, including legal, to address the issue.”In a separate tweet posted on Monday, Mueller wrote, “The photo posted under the hashtag is not reflective of the educational values and beliefs of the School District of Baraboo.”Baraboo police also tweeted that they are assisting the district’s investigation since being made aware of a “controversial photo of a group of high school students.”The photo drew widespread disapproval, including from Wisconsin Gov.-elect Tony Evers and the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum in Poland.“This is why every single day we work hard to educate. We need to explain what is the danger of hateful ideology rising. Auschwitz with its gas chambers was at the very end of the long process of normalizing and accommodating hatred,” the Auschwitz Memorial tweeted.Not all the students in the photo participated in the gesture. Jordan Blue, a student in the top right of the photo whose arms remain at his sides, said in a statement that the photo was taken as students gathered at the Sauk County Courthouse for professional prom photos and that he “couldn’t leave the photo as it was taken within five seconds.”“The photographer told us to raise our hands kind of in a way, and I knew at that point that some my classmates are very immature,” he said in a separate interview. “So didn’t want to do that, and I saw what was happening and I felt so upset.”Jonathan Schieber, a senior who appears in the photo, told ABC News there was no discussion of any racist aspect to the photo when it was taken. It was only after the photo garnered social media attention over the weekend that he started to hear about it.Schieber, who is black, was singled out due to his race, though he had both arms at his side in the photo.“Somebody had made a meme or something, saying, ‘We even got the black kid to throw it up,’” Schieber told ABC News. “I couldn’t go nowhere without people being like, ‘Are you that kid from the picture?’ Everybody was sharing it, talking about racial profiling. I went to school on Monday and people were trying to take pictures with me — you’re going viral, all that stuff.”“I left school because I was not having it,” he added.Wheel Memories posted thumbnails of several photos from the shoot on its website in the spring, including the one in question. The photos have since been removed and the agency wrote on its site in a message that it blames “jerks” and online negativity.“It is too bad that there are those in society who can and do take the time to be jerks; knowingly and willingly to be jerks! The internet can be a wonderful tool but for some there is an overwhelming urge to destroy. The destruction may not be physical but instead it can be bullying that is intellectual or emotional,” the photo agency wrote on its website.“To anyone that was hurt I sincerely apologize,” the agency said. “To those who have harmed them, we as society often ignore them I have chosen not to do that. YOU ARE JERKS! Grow up! Be kind, Be gentle, Be civil!”ABC News has reached out to several other students in the photo who were identified through social media.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Raising skill levels across a workforce of 20,000 people became the ambitionof Sheffield City Council after it escaped financial disaster in themid-1990s.  Guy Sheppard reports on ahighly-praised runner-upEstablishing uniform standards of service poses special problems for anorganisation running everything from libraries and schools to street cleaningand old people’s homes. At Sheffield City Council, the responsibility for achieving this was givento its corporate training consultancy three years ago. Barbara Duckworth, head of the 20-strong CTC, says training had never beentied to the central aims of the organisation before and, because there was nosystematic way of measuring standards and performance, there was no feeling ofcorporate identity. “The aim has been to provide better services for the people ofSheffield by raising the skill levels of the people who deliver those services.”What we are trying to do is make each individual’s performance fit inwith a council that delivers services in a certain way. We are trying to putcorporate standards across the whole organisation,” she says. Last year, the council achieved Investors in People accreditation at thefirst attempt, and senior management is now preparing for reassessment inDecember. Andrew Forrest, learning and development director at the Industrial Society,who chairs the TD2001 judging panel, says IIP was a remarkable achievement fora council that would probably have been one of the worst in the country when itsuffered a budget crisis in the mid-1990s. He says training has played a fundamental part in the change. “Thewhole senior team is really enthused about developing people and they are allplaying their part in doing that.” One example of this was the way responsibility for IIP accreditation washandled by the social services director rather than someone from personnel.”It’s not just for trainers to do training, it’s for everybody,” saysForrest. “The role model that the top people are giving is very important.”Forrest was impressed with the way the objectives of the five-strongexecutive management team were translated into a development plan for theentire 20,000-strong workforce. “Coaching people were using four or fivekey priorities over and over again in their training. If an organisation sortsout its priorities, that gives the cue for training specialists to deliver theright training.” In the case of Sheffield, the priorities include a systematic process ofsetting targets for all areas of its services, a uniform system of appraisalfor all employees, and a clear process of financial delegation. As part of the Government’s Best Value modernisation agenda for the publicsector, Sheffield is required to publish an annual plan setting out its currentperformance levels. It also has to show how these can be improved in thefuture. Mike Campbell, director of the policy research institute at LeedsMetropolitan University and one of the TD 2001 judges, was impressed at the waythis was being tied in with training. “IIP accreditation and theapplication for this award are in line with its clear-minded approach to bestvalue,” he says. “The city council has taken this agenda veryseriously indeed.” Each of the council’s directorates has a small training team of its own to dealwith specialist training and development needs. This allows the CTC toconcentrate on providing guidance to line managers in developing employeeskills and promoting the use of national occupational standards whenidentifying training needs. It has also been responsible for organising360-degree assessment of senior managers by up to a dozen of their colleagues. “We analyse and feed back the results and then the managers work outwhat they need to do,” says Duckworth. Over the next two years, the programme will be rolled out to all middlemanagers. One way a culture of improvement permeates throughout the organisation isthrough workforce development planning, which has recently been devolved toline managers. The CTC drew up a guidance manual to help the managers fulfilthis responsibility without straying from the core objectives of the council. Another way of spreading the message is through annual roadshows, whichevery employee is encouraged to attend. Annual opinion surveys are used to find out from employees whether they feeltheir needs are being met and whether their managers are effective. Theresponses have been encouraging, particularly in the way management isproviding employees with helpful feedback on their work performance. Between 1996and 2000, the managers’ rating in this area rose from minus 38 to plus 42. Forrest says there are plenty of examples of how the CTC has adopted animaginative approach to specific training needs. Under the Government’s NewDeal programme for unemployed school leavers, a group of city centre”ambassadors” was created earlier this year to provide shoppers withinformation and ensure bylaws are kept. Each ambassador undergoes a six-weektraining programme. Forrest says there is a danger that people on New Deal programmes lack pridein their work because the scheme tends to be for people who have not done verywell in their careers so far. “Sheffield seems to have used New Deal to give fresh heart to theseyoungsters,” he says. Another example was the professional qualification that is being establishedfor the council’s 35 education welfare officers who are responsible for dealingwith truancy among school pupils. Team leader Davida Howard says that becauseof the specialist nature of their work, there is no professional qualificationfor them to aim at. “But we wanted to raise their morale and professionalstatus.” Thanks to the CTC, a Local Vocational Qualification is now being piloted,which addresses the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary for the job. For Forrest, one of the most striking ways that training is now integratedthroughout the organisation is through an annual awards ceremony attended bythe Lord Mayor. This year’s winners include a primary school lunchtimeassistant who has trained to provide classroom help for children with specialneeds. “It was rewarding precisely the sort of jobs that often getoverlooked,” says Forrest. “It is a sign that development of peopleruns right through the organisation. “It’s a very powerful message that you may be in quite a humble job butby golly you matter to us.” Sheffield starsOn 1 Jul 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. last_img read more

first_img Training & Education Sailors of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) (Ike) participated in a community relations (COMREL) event at the Rhone American Cemetery (RAC) March 9.RAC was established Aug. 17, 1944 for American Soldiers who were killed during World War II. The French government granted free use of the land to the American government as a permanent burial ground without charge or taxation.While Sailors initially expected only to beautify the areas around the cemetery, the COMREL turned into a historical lesson of the fallen Americans who lay at rest.“It was an incredibly humbling experience,” said Chief Religious Program Specialist (SW/FMF/EXW/IDW) Shari M. Chisholm, leading chief petty officer for the Religious Ministries department. “We went to improve the condition of the cemetery but were also treated to a lovely tour of the cemetery and learned some history behind the brave patriots who died for our country.”Sailors viewed the cemetery grounds which consisted of 861 memorial tombstones, 294 names on the “Wall of the Missing,” a bronze relief map and a chapel. The map showed the military operations in the area and the advance up the Rhone River Valley.Bruce C. Malone Jr., superintendent of the cemetery, said that hosting Sailors on the cemetery grounds was especially meaningful for himself and his crew.“It’s an honor and a privilege for us to be able to share this heritage and history with these Sailors,” said Malone. “I hope this trip sparked an interest in [these Sailors] about this cemetery’s American history so that they will look further into it.”Malone said Americans often only remember the bodies that made it back home after World War II and forget about those left behind in Europe.In the chapel on the grounds is a floor-to-ceiling mosaic mural that recalls the eternal care of the Almighty. The mural, like much of the chapel interior, was designed by Austin Purves of Litchfield, Conn. It symbolizes French parents mourning the loss of American sons.During the event, Ike Sailors also learned about the American Battle Monuments Commission, the history of the operations in France and about who is buried in RAC.“You often read about this kind of stuff in history books,” said Machinist’s Mate 1st Class John Armendariz, maintenance leading petty officer of Supply department’s S-8 division. “But being here in person is a surreal experience. It was strange to be standing on the same grounds as where these brave men actually fought for my freedom.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff, March 12, 2013 Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Dwight D.

View post tag: conductscenter_img View post tag: Experiments July 7, 2014 View post tag: Navy The main goal for the experimentation campaign, co-developed by the Navy’s Fleet Experimentation (FLEX) program with and in support of 4th Fleet, is to inform updates to the JHSV’s concept of operations (CONOPs). The campaign will continue throughout Spearhead’s maiden deployment. The FLEX program, managed by NWDC on behalf of U.S. Fleet Forces Command and U.S. Pacific Fleet, is about delivering tangible products to the warfighter, specifically by assisting the Navy in integrating new and versatile assets into the Fleet.“Experimentation initiatives that are linked to our operational mission are exactly how we want to continue to support greater DoD efforts,” said Rear Adm. George Ballance, commander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet. “The SOUTHCOM theater is particularly conducive to innovation and experimentation, as initiatives can immediately be used in support of real-world operations. In these austere times of reduced resources and assets, we need to gain as much efficiencies as possible; experimentation is one way to achieve that. U.S. 4th Fleet is the Theater of Innovation.”The experiments conducted included the first launch and recovery of the BAT Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) off of a naval vessel, the initial launch of the PUMA UAS off of a JHSV in this theater, and the maiden launch and tether of the Aerostat off of a JHSV. These technology enablers would enhance JHSV’s ability to perform several additional missions, including Counter Illicit Trafficking.“We had a very successful experimentation period with NWDC,” said Capt. Sam Hancock, mission commander for Southern Partnership Station Joint High Speed Vessel 2014 (SPS-JHSV 14). “We now look forward to continuing the development of capabilities by employing these technologies from Spearhead.”All experiment objectives were met and NWDC is in the process of analyzing the data to complete a preliminary assessment.“We attribute this success to our strong partnership with 4th Fleet and the focused teamwork of the military detachment and civilian mariners while underway,” said Lt. Allison Withers, NWDC Experimentation lead afloat.4th Fleet and NWDC will return for a second experimentation phase in September.[mappress]Press Release, July 07, 2014; Image: Wikimedia View post tag: americas View post tag: USNS Spearheadlast_img read more

first_img These pilots will prove pivotal to our understanding of the situation and to inform any future accommodation provision. This will help improve the outcomes for ex-offenders across the country. When leaving custody, ex-offenders should all have a safe and suitable home to go to and there is work to be done to ensure this is the case. As well as ensuring people have somewhere to live, dedicated key worker support will help ex-offenders manage the practical challenges of finding a job and other issues that come with trying to reintegrate into society. Housing benefit top ups and rental deposits will ensure that accommodation will be provided from the day offenders leave prison, bolstered through wrap around support from key workers to address other needs which may normally cause the loss of a tenancy, such as attending appropriate probation and employment appointments.Heather Wheeler MP, Minister for Housing and Homelessness said: Once the trial has completed, it will be fully evaluated to assess the potential for the scheme to be rolled out more widely across England. We will also be working with the Welsh Government to deliver a similar accommodation solution.The Rough Sleeping Strategy was launched in August 2018 and sets out to halve rough sleeping on England’s streets by 2022 and end it altogether by 2027. It is backed by an additional £100 million and developed across government in conjunction with charities and experts.The strategy lays out a 3-pronged approach to tackling rough sleeping, including preventing rough sleeping by providing timely support, intervening to help people already on the streets get swift, targeted support and helping people recover, find a new home quickly and rebuild their lives. Leeds, Pentonville and Bristol prisons have been chosen to spearhead the £6 million pilot programme aimed at helping vulnerable ex-prisoners find and stay in stable accommodation.Research shows that those who are homeless or in temporary accommodation are significantly more likely to reoffend within a year than those with a stable place to live.The pilots are aimed specifically at prisoners serving short sentences who are at high risk of returning to prison. This represents the latest in a series of measures aimed at breaking the cycle of reoffending, from improving prisoners’ employment prospects to reinforcing family ties.The sites will pilot a new partnership approach between prisons, local authorities, probation staff, charities and others who will work together to provide the support prisoners need when they are released – such as signing up for benefits – but will primarily be focused on finding them suitable accommodation.The two-year programme forms part of the Government’s £100m Rough Sleeping Strategy announced over the summer.Justice Secretary David Gauke said: Every time we help an ex-prisoner into a new life – with a stable home, strong relationships and a regular job – we increase the chances of seeing fewer victims of crime in the future. These ground-breaking pilots will help prevent rough sleeping among vulnerable ex-offenders and support them as they start a new life after prison.

first_imgBy Megan ForgraveWorld Food Prize FoundationWashington, D.C. – The World Food Prize Foundation awarded its Borlaug Medallion to the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities today. The award was presented during a ceremony in Washington D.C. celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Morrill Land-grant Act of 1862. Written by Senator Justin Smith Morrill of Vermont and signed into law on July 2, 1862, by President Abraham Lincoln, the legislation provided grants of federal lands to the states for the establishment of public universities and agricultural education programs nationwide, and led to the democratization of higher education. “Land-grant institutions have played a critical role in inspiring multiple generations to attain the highest levels of education and scientific research; fostering the most prolific era of agricultural production ever recorded in human history; and providing a model for emulation around the world as we endeavor to eliminate the scourge of hunger from the face of the earth,” said Amb. Kenneth M. Quinn, president of the World Food Prize.Quinn presented the award to Scott Angle, chairman of the APLU Board on Agriculture Assembly and Dean of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. The World Food Prize is the foremost international award recognizing the achievements of individuals who have advanced human development by improving the quality, quantity or availability of food in the world. The Borlaug Medallion honors those organizations and Heads of State who would not ordinarily be eligible for the World Food Prize, but who have made an especially noteworthy contribution to improving the world’s food supply and ensuring adequate nutrition. In the past it has only been presented to King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand; the Sasakawa Family and its Nippon Foundation of Japan; and Kofi Annan for his leadership of the United Nations.Quinn noted that Dr. Norman Borlaug – Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, founder of the World Food Prize, and known as the “Father of the Green Revolution” – was a graduate of a land-grant university.“APLU should be extremely proud of its stewardship of the universities across our country, and of the critical work and research that continues to occur at institutions across America,” Quinn said. “We continue to make great strides in science and agriculture, and we are committed to working with you to inspire future generations to take on the complex issues that we face around the globe.”The sesquicentennial celebration featured a keynote speech by Bill Gates; U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack also participated in dynamic panels about the future of education. There are currently 106 land-grant universities, including at least one in every state.Details about the World Food Prize Borlaug Medallion and a downloadable image of it are available online at www.worldfoodprize.org/borlaugmedallion.last_img read more

first_imgBy Dialogo August 27, 2009 Mexico City, 24 August (EFE).- A second-ranking leader of the La Familia Michoacana cartel, one of the most active and violent groups in Mexico, was captured by soldiers and law-enforcement agents in the western state of Colima, together with five of his bodyguards, the federal Attorney General’s Office (PGR) announced today. The detainee is Luis Ricardo Magaña Mendoza, alias “El 19 1/2,” considered “one of the principal leaders” of La Familia Michoacana, a direct subordinate of the gang’s top bosses, Jesús Méndez, “El Chango,” and Nazario Moreno, “El Chayo,” the PGR said in a joint statement with the National Defense Ministry. He is at the same level as Servando Gómez, “La Tuta,” the criminal who became famous some weeks ago when in a telephone call to a television news program in the state of Michoacán, in the western part of the country, he called on the government to come to an agreement, a proposal that was rejected by the authorities. “El 19 1/2” and his five bodyguards were captured yesterday, Sunday, in Manzanillo (Colima). Soldiers and federal agents also seized two plastic bags containing white powder, apparently cocaine, eighteen cellular telephones, and an unspecified amount of money in cash. According to the authorities, Magaña Mendoza was responsible for controlling the traffic in synthetic drugs (“crystal meth”) to the United States on behalf of La Familia Michoacana, as well as engaging in extortion, kidnapping, and the co-opting of municipal, state, and federal authorities in several municipalities in Michoacán. He was also La Familia’s local boss for the municipality of Zamora, Michoacán. La Familia’s operations are concentrated in Michoacán, Guerrero (in the south of the country), and Mexico State (in the center of the country). It is considered the principal cartel trafficking in synthetic drugs.last_img read more

first_imgInformation about investments’ impact on society and the environment should be included in UK pension dashboards, a government-commissioned impact investing group has said.The Implementation Taskforce for social impact investing said the government could encourage engagement with their retirement savings – one of the intentions behind the dashboard – by telling consumers about aspects of their investments “to which they can easily relate and about which they care”.The suggestion was made by the body charged with following up on recommendations for “growing a culture of social impact investing” in the UK. These were made by an independent advisory group set up by the UK government in December 2016. Elizabeth Corley, former CEO of Allianz Global Investors, chaired the advisory group and was also asked to lead the “implementation taskforce”.In its response to the government’s consultation on the pension dashboards – which aim to collate individuals’ pension data in one place – the taskforce said there was a growing body of evidence showing that savers cared about the impact their money had on society and the environment. “We… think that communicating the real life relevance of people’s investments and their impact on society and the environment is a key way to encourage savers to engage with their savings and therefore should in time be included in the pensions dashboard,” it said. Elizabeth Corley, head of the UK’s social impact investing Implementation Taskforce“Once the technology has bedded in and the pensions and investment industry has had time to gather and feed in the appropriate data… steps should be taken to communicate impact to savers.”According to a recent report, most corporates do not provide information that allows investors to understand their impacts on society and the environment.Separately, academics and investors involved in another project, the Cambridge Impact Framework, have said that the data to properly assess the social and environmental impact of investment funds is missing. Using limited existing data, they developed a framework to help the investment industry assess funds against outcomes linked to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.Supporters of the impact investing implementation taskforce include NEST Corporation, the government-initiated auto-enrolment provider, and the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association.last_img read more

Share Hon Ronald Green and Ezekiel Bazil walking out of ParliamentThe Opposition United Workers Party led by their leader Mr Ronald Green has walked out of Parliament minutes after Mr Daniel Lugay was sworn in as senator when the Second Session of the Eighth Parliament commenced at the House of Assembly this morning.The members namely; Hector John, Ronald Green, Edison James, Norris Prevost, Ezekiel Bazil, Ronald Isidore and Daniel Lugay walked out of Parliament claiming that they will continue to do so until the government heeds their call for electoral reform.The United Workers Party has been boycotting Parliament since the 2009 general elections as they claim it was fraudulent and illegal. They also filed several election petitions challenging the elections but have since withdrawn most of them. In their petitions the UWP alleges the DLP’s win of 18 out of 21 constituencies was accomplished by bribery and unfairness.Those constituencies were the St Joseph constituency involving UWP’s John Abraham and DLP’s Kelver Darroux; the Roseau South seat involving UWP’s Bobby Frederick and DLP’s Ambrose George; the Salybia constituency involving UWP’s Claudius Sanford and DLP’s Ashton Graneau. The seat of Parliamentary Representative of the Vieille Case constituency Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit was also challenged by UWP’s Maynard Joseph and as well as the seat of the UWP’s leader Ronald Green challenging DLP’s Petter St. Jean. Three of the petitions were struck off while the latter two were maintained. Hon. Hector John in conversation with Senator Ronald Isidore outside the Parliament building on Tuesday.However High Court Judge Gertel Thom ruled that a trial should be held to determine whether Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and Education Minister Petter Saint Jean possessed dual citizenship on Nomination Day of the last general election in 2009 and therefore were not duly elected.Court was adjourned sine die, meaning without a date on October 3rd, 2011 after both sides presented their arguments and witnesses to the Court however Justice Thom reserved her judgment and promised that her decision would be rendered before 31st December, 2011.Most members of the party refused to comment to reporters after they walked out of Parliament claiming that they would discuss their concerns at a press conference on Wednesday.Newly sworn in senator Daniel Lugay explained an incident in which his brother who had resided out of Dominica for several years was bribed to vote for the Dominica Labour Party.“Here it is that I shared in the Parliament that my brother in 2009 came in to vote illegally. He called me ahead of the elections and he said to me “Danny I want to come down to campaign for you” so I told him on a matter of principle; you have been out of Dominica for more than ten years living in the states on a matter of principle, “Peter no, I would really like your help” as a matter of fact he introduced me to politics, he was a member of the Young Freedom Movement”.Senator Daniel Lugay speaking to reporters outside of Parliament“On the day of elections I saw him in Dominica, I said “Peter what are you doing in Dominica?” He said, “Boy”, I asked “how did you vote?” he said almost drunk, “Boy I vote my conscience.” Flown into Dominica a veteran politician; Julius Timothy, why does Julius Timothy need to bring in people he going up against a rookie and I meet other people in Antigua who came in. So I am saying that Peter came in illegally and vote, my very own brother. On Saturday I spoke with him he almost cried he told me his wife gave him so much pressure, when he called his best friend to explain to him what he had done to his brother, his best friend told him he would have invited him home and he would poison him. I would never do that to my brother; I made up with my brother, I ate with him on Saturday.”Mr Lugay alleges that the entire 2009 election was fraudulent and that they will continue to protest until the issue of electoral reform is addressed.“What I am saying is that the whole election was fraudulent; there was no doubt that I would have had a better chance, I lost by 117 votes because of that illegal act of bribery and bringing in voters. I suffered tremendously there were folks I met in Antigua who gave me their names I have them in my wallet at home who came in to vote by the Labour Party. We’re saying until we can get this issue sorted out of electoral reform our protest will continue,” he said.He concluded that the protests will take various forms as the leadership decides.Meantime President of the United Workers Party Mr Edison James informed reporters of a press conference at the party office on Wednesday at which time he promised to “give you all the information you want, you will be able to ask us any question you want”.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win EPL: Foxes attack Burnley Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says Man City vs. Leicester City Venue: Etihad Stadium Kick off: 6:30PMManchester City welcome high-flying Leicester City to the Etihad Stadium this evening in a match which pits third against second in the Premier League table. The champions trail their visitors by four points after 17 games of the season, while both teams will be looking to take the opportunity to close the gap on runaway leaders Liverpool. While this fixture always looked like a tasty way to head into Christmas for both sides, at the start of the season few would have expected it to have the significance it does now. Man City know that even a victory would not be enough to leapfrog Leicester in the table, and that victory is by no means guaranteed considering how impressive Brendan Rodgers’s side have been. The Foxes have won more games, lost half as many and conceded eight fewer goals than Saturday’s hosts so far this season, while they also boast the division’s best goal difference ahead of even Liverpool. Pep Guardiola’s side will still go into the match as favourites, particularly having steadied the ship with three successive wins since their derby defeat to Manchester United, but there are plenty of warning signs for the champions. Perhaps the main one is that their four defeats this season have all come against teams who punished them with pace on the counter-attack, something Leicester and Premier League top-scorer Jamie Vardy are perfectly equipped to do too. Even League One outfit Oxford United caused them problems in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night, registering more shots on target than Man City and ending up on the end of a 3-1 defeat which flattered the holders. City’s reward for that victory is a Manchester derby semi-final, giving them an opportunity to avenge the 2-1 defeat to their local rivals in what was their last home game. A final against Leicester could be on the cards, but first Man City must overcome the Foxes in the league if they are to avoid back-to-back top-flight home defeats for the first time since February 2016 and claim successive league wins for the first time since the start of November. Last weekend’s Kevin De Bruyne-inspired win over Arsenal provided Man City with their only clean sheet in their last 12 outings across all competitions, but they have not kept one in front of their own fans since October while Leicester have scored in each of their last 15 games. Guardiola’s side have already dropped as many points as they did throughout the whole of last season and know that they cannot afford any more slip-ups if they retain hope of catching Liverpool in the title race, making Saturday’s showdown a must-win contest for them. Man City’s first task is catching Leicester, of course, but for both teams this match represents a rare opportunity to close the gap on Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp’s side currently away at the Club World Cup. A win for Leicester would reduce their deficit back down to seven points and also set them up perfectly for their huge Boxing Day clash with the league leaders, who are becoming increasingly affected by injury problems through their busy December schedule. It could be that the Foxes are only four points adrift by the time they play their final match of the year against West Ham United next weekend, then, although to do so would mean back-to-back wins over last season’s top two in a Christmas double-header which is just about as hard as they could wish for. Regardless of what does happen in those two games, 2019 has been a great year for Leicester, who at this stage last season sat 12th with 22 points and 21 goals under the unpopular Claude Puel. Fast-forward a year and the Foxes are 10 places, 17 points and 19 goals better off while playing the type of football the fans were desperate to see, leading to Rodgers already signing a new long-term contract with the club. Indeed, Rodgers has been so impressive that he has been linked with the Man City post should Guardiola leave at the end of the season, and a victory at the Etihad – where the hosts have already lost twice this season – would do his chances of landing that job no harm at all. Leicester have every reason to be confident of picking up the victory too, having won a club-record eight league games in a row prior to last weekend’s disappointing draw at home to Norwich City. Progress in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night got them back to winning ways, albeit via a penalty shootout after letting a two-goal lead slip against Everton, meaning that they have now won 16 of their last 19 games across all competitions. Leicester’s away winning streak remains intact too, now six in a row across all competitions, although their only two league defeats this season have come on the road at Manchester United and Liverpool. Even so, the Foxes have picked up as many away points this season as Man City have at home, so the visitors will be confident of more than holding their own on Saturday. Man City possible XI: Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Mendy, De Bruyne, Rodri, D Silva, Bernardo, Jesus, Sterling. Leicester possible XI: Schmeichel, Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans, Chilwell, Perez, Tielemans, Ndidi, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy.Tags: Brendan RodgersLeicester CityManchester CityPep Guardiolalast_img read more

first_imgManchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has refused to rule out a move for Steven Gerrard if the former England captain fails to agree new terms with Liverpool. Gerrard’s existing contract with the Reds ends in June but Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers remains confident the 34-year-old will stay on at Anfield beyond the end of the current season. City have already demonstrated their willingness to put their trust in veteran players this season with the short-term loan signing of another former England midfielder, 36-year-old Frank Lampard, and Blues boss Pellegrini believes Gerrard still has plenty to offer in the years ahead. Pellegrini told several national newspapers: “I don’t ever rate players on their age. It depends on the money they cost and the number of years they have (on their contract). “But, like Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard is a top player and he can continue at a high level for a couple more years.” Rodgers was asked about Gerrard’s future following the 1-0 defeat at Newcastle on Saturday. He said: ‘It’s quite straightforward. I had a meeting with Steven’s representative explaining the situation. I very much want him to be a part of what we are doing here. ”He’s been a brilliant captain for me. I relayed that to the ownership. I’m sure he will go away with that and hopefully his representative will organise a deal. “Steven is very much part of what I’m doing here. He’s a unique player, a unique talent.” Gerrard made his senior debut for Liverpool in November 1998 having first been spotted by the club as a nine-year-old playing for local side Whiston Juniors. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgWORLD heavyweight champion Tyson Fury could lose his licence after he revealed he was taking cocaine.The British fighter, 28, who claimed he had retired on Monday before retracting the comment three hours later, has also said he is suffering from depression.British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) general secretary Robert Smith said cocaine use is “against the law”.The governing body, which meets on October 12, stripped Ricky Hatton of his licence after drug use allegations.The British boxer lost his licence in 2010 and the former two-weight world champion has reportedly texted Fury asking him “to give me a ring” if he needs me.The BBBofC meeting has not been called exclusively for Fury’s case, but Smith said the body “can’t ignore the law of the land”, adding: “It’s drug use and we will deal with it accordingly.”BBC Sport has contacted the WBO and WBA – the two organisations with which Fury holds heavyweight titles – but is yet to receive a response.The WBO and WBA are not governing bodies and can strip Fury of the title, declare the titles vacant, or he can vacate them.Smith said: “We deal with the licence, so in theory, if we were to suspend him they would have no choice but to strip him because he can’t defend them, can he?“You can’t just take a man’s licence away, without taking the proper procedures, if we decide that’s the right thing to do.”Fury – undefeated in 25 professional fights – has not fought since November 2015 when he inflicted a first defeat on Wladimir Klitschko in more than 11 years, winning the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts.He was stripped of the IBF strap within two weeks as he could not face mandatory challenger Vyacheslav Glazkov and a rematch with Klitschko has twice been postponed.The Manchester-born fighter also faces a UK Anti-Doping hearing in November after traces of a banned substance were allegedly found in a urine sample in June.On Monday, Fury tweeted: “I’m the greatest, and I’m also retired”. But three hours later posted: “I’m here to stay”. (BBC Sport)last_img read more

first_imgCOLUMBUS, Ohio ? That was the ending they were hoping forlast time.A year after having its conference championship hopes dashedon the very same court, the Wisconsin basketball team stayed atop the Big Tenrace with a 58-53 win over Ohio State at the Value City Arena Sunday.“That was a great win for us,” guard JasonBohannon said. “Ohio State played pretty good today. ? For us to come inhere and get a victory was pretty good.”Bohannon led all scorers with 16 points and MichaelFlowers added 14 as the Badgers (23-4, 13-2 Big Ten) overcame 12 first-halfturnovers to hand the Buckeyes (17-10, 8-6) their second consecutive loss.Marcus Landry narrowly missed his second double-double ofthe season with a 10 point, nine rebound effort for 10th-ranked UW.Wisconsin took what had been a back-and-forth defensivestruggle between UW’s man-to-man and OSU’s 3-2 zone and created some separationfor itself midway through the second half.Trailing by two after Jon Diebler made his only 3-pointerof the game, the Badgers used their balanced offense to go on a 9-0 run thatsaw no UW player contributing more than one field goal.The spurt was started by Flowers, who leaped high atmidcourt to intercept a pass from Ohio State’s Jamar Butler and then went infor a layup that eventually fell in after nearly coming to rest on the back ofthe rim.“I have never looked up and seen a guy that size thathigh up in the air. ? What a great read,” Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryansaid. “And that was a big play.”The next UW possession, Flowers found Bohannon open forone of the guard’s four 3-pointers. After Brian Butch made a mid-range jumperoff an assist from Tim Jarmusz, Landry finished off the run with two freethrows with 5:08 to play.As it turned out, the Badgers would need just about everyone of those points, as their next points came on Landry’s breakaway dunk toput the game away with 11 seconds left.The Buckeyes picked up the pressure defensively, bringingback the full-court trap used in the first half and swarming around the ball totry to create turnovers. While the Badgers were able to deal with the zone,limiting their turnovers to just three in the second half, at times theystruggled to get off a good shot.“They even got more aggressive those last fiveminutes,” Landry said. “They picked up their defense even more. ? Youhave to make the right decision at the right time or else something bad mighthappen or you might not get the shot you want.”But just as Wisconsin struggled to score at the end of thegame, so too did Ohio State. After drawing to within three points with 3:18 togo on two Butler free throws, the Buckeyes couldn’t score the rest of the way.Included in that drought were two missed layups that forward Brian Butch wasable to alter.“I was just trying to be strong more than anything,and be big,” Butch said. “I’m 6?-11?, and just try and get the ball.?“The first one on (OSU forward Matt) Terwilliger Ijust got a good block on and got the rebound. Then (Evan) Turner tried takingit in and got a little piece of it. I didn’t try to jump and block that one;usually that’s when you get a foul called.”In total, Ohio State missed its last five shots and wasnot able to come completely back.“I think we won the first war, and then towards themiddle to the end of the second half they were up seven and I think that’swhere we could never recover from,” Terwilliger said.After trailing by as many as seven early on, Wisconsin wastied with Ohio State 32-32 at the end of a sloppy opening half. Wisconsinturned the ball over 12 times in the first 20 minutes of play, nearly matchingits season average for a complete game. The Buckeyes were also careless withthe ball, losing possession 10 times.The Buckeyes at times extended their 3-2 zone to afull-court trapping zone to bother the Badgers, and it got to two of UW’s morereliable ball handlers. Michael Flowers and Joe Krabbenhoft each contributedthree turnovers to the total.Wisconsintook the upper hand early thanks to an 8-2 run to open the game. But Ohio Statestormed back, eliminating the deficit with a 15-4 run to take a seven-pointlead ? its largest of the game ? with just under eight minutes left at 19-12.last_img read more

first_imgThe Olympic Council of Asia, which governs the games, reportedly balked at including bridge, which in the eyes of some is linked with card games such as poker, black jack — and hence, gambling.To be fair, bridge would be as out of place in a casino as bullfighting in Bhutan.The auditoriums set up for bridge are hushed, dotted with dozens of card tables with four players at each. At one session, curious photographers were given access for just five minutes, and then ushered away. Fans can watch the hands that are dealt — and how they are played — on large television screens filled with the red and black symbols for spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs.“The photographers really wouldn’t matter because the top players zone out these distractions,” Aaida Abu-Jaber, a player from Jordan told The Associated Press. “They are in their zone and focused and they don’t know what’s happening around them.

The statement came after Guyana Elections Commission Chairperson, Retired Justice Claudette Singh informed the President that the Commission would be ready to execute elections by the end of February 2020.The GCCI re-emphasised its call for the preservation of democracy and constitutional compliance through the holding of free and fair elections following the passage of the No-Confidence Motion of December 21, 2018. The Private Sector body said that the glaring absence of a date for elections has placed Guyana’s democratic system in jeopardy, noting that the Guyanese people deserve transparency and accountability from institutions at all levels of government.The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), GCCI said, in its June 2019 consequential orders, had stipulated that elections be held within a three-month timeline, which after factoring the delays owing to legal challenges would have placed the deadline at yesterday, September 18, 2019.“Given the GECOM Chair’s recent announcement that elections could be held as early as February 2020, more than one year and two months after the No-Confidence Motion; the GCCI notes, with utmost concern that the country cannot continue to function without a Cabinet and Parliament. Business cannot continue as usual under a caretaker Government with limited legal authority,” the statement noted.The body reminded that a No-Confidence Motion is an important tool used in a representative democracy which serves the purpose of ensuring that Members of Parliament are accountable to the electorate. It also noted that while the Government has accepted its caretaker status, its continuance in office beyond the September 18 date signifies a departure from democratic accountability and political order.last_img read more

The artwork will be unveiled week beginning the 13th of April.To compliment this project, young people will also custom paint a Go Kart which will be put on display in the Millennium Forum Piazza from 13th April to 13th May 2015.This Go Kart will be placed on a floor of 3d art and will be accompanied by digital footage of the overall project.  Millennium Forum audiences will be invited to sit in the Go Kart, take ‘selfies’ have fun and upload them to the Millennium Forum Facebook/ Twitter using #goartgokart  for their chance to win track tickets and tickets to the Millennium Forum shows.Sponsorship and Development Officer at the Millennium Forum, Cara Mc Cartney commented, “This is another excellent example of how business and the arts can work together on a creative sponsorship. “Campsie Karting are raising their brand awareness through a successful sponsorship with the Millennium Forum whilst at the same time reaching out to their local community; this innovative project gives opportunities for young people of all nationalities to avail of complimentary art classes under the professional facilitation of Sean O Donnell on an arts project that will that will leave a legacy in their community for years to come.”She added, “Go Art Go Kart has been a three-month labour of love and gives a much-needed artistic boost to the race track décor at Campsie Karting, but more importantly, a great sense of pride to all the individuals involved.“The Millennium Forum is very grateful to Arts and Business N.I for their continued support with its creative partnerships such as with Campsie Karting.”Brona Whittaker, Arts Manager at Arts & Business NI also commented, “The ’Go Art Go Kart’ project between Millennium Forum and their sponsors Campsie Karting is a fantastic new project which has included young artists between the ages of 12-18 years in a creative and participative way.“The project will have a positive impact on both the business and the arts partners and all of the young people involved.“The partnership is a great example of how the worlds of arts and business can work together in creating new and innovative concepts which deliver on the objectives for all involved. “A&B NI is delighted to be involved with the project through the Investment Programme.”NORTH-WEST KARTING CENTRE LAUNCH ‘GO ART GO KART’ COMMUNITY PROJECT was last modified: May 19th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BusinessFeaturesnewslast_img read more

first_imgCD AndersonSouth Africans like living life in the fast lane, and the country boasts a long tradition of professional motor racing, on both two and four wheels, from track and production car racing to rally and Formula One. Along the way, South Africa has created its fair amount of racing champions, trailblazers and superstars. We look at five of South Africa’s greatest motorsport legends.Gugu Zulu‘the fastest brother in Africa’, pioneering South African racing driver Gugu Zulu, who died in July 2016 (Photo: Volkswagen) pic.twitter.com/ZgTr2Q6pnP— CD Anderson (@bizarrojerri) October 11, 2016Gugu Zulu, who died in July this year while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, was one of South Africa’s best loved sport stars. He broke barriers in becoming South Africa’s first black professional racing driver, affectionately known to the racing world as “the fastest brother in Africa”.Born in Soweto in 1978, Zulu started racing at the age of 20, under the tutelage of South African rally legend Sarel van der Merwe. He earned the second seat next to Van der Merwe in his Sasol Steam production car team in 2001. After winning both the Wesbank Driver of the Year and Goodyear Star of Tomorrow motor racing awards, Zulu drove in both rally and track racing, predominately for Volkswagen.Together with driver/navigator Carl Perkins, Zulu won the SA National Rally Championships in 2007, 2009 and 2010, eventually graduating to rally’s top division in 2014.He became the first South African to be invited to race in the Skip Barber Dodge Racing Series in the US, and was also a member of the South African A1 GP team.Jody ScheckterAs one of 17 South African Formula One drivers, Jody Scheckter was the country’s most successful driver in the sport. He rose to international prominence in the 1970s, winning his first F1 race in 1972. Scheckter went on to win 10 races (including a home win at Kyalami in 1975), a Championship in 1979 and over 30 podium finishes. He drove for McLaren, Tyrell and Ferrari.One of his more memorable, though tragic, racing moments was in the 1973 US Grand Prix, when Scheckter attempted to rescue fellow driver Frenchman François Cevert, who crashed in front of him during qualifying laps. Cevert died and the event had a profound effect on Scheckter, who became a more mature and less reckless driver during the latter part of his career.SA F1 driver Jody Scheckter attempted to save driver François Cevert during a fatal crash at 1973 US Grand Prix (Photo: Sports Car Digest) pic.twitter.com/KxaOO815Mt— CD Anderson (@bizarrojerri) October 11, 2016After retiring in 1981, Scheckter worked as a race commentator and driving team owner. He is currently an organic farmer in the UK. His two sons, Toby and Tomas, also become racing drivers in Formula Three and Indy Car Championship. Scheckter placed 90th on the list of Great South Africans in 2004.Sarel van der MerweSarel van der Merwe, South African rally & racing legend, won 11 SA Rally Championships between 1975-1988. (Photo: https://t.co/2TTWW5lSwP) pic.twitter.com/YlD911IxWP— CD Anderson (@bizarrojerri) October 11, 2016“Supervan”, as Sarel van der Merwe is affectionately known, is South Africa’s most successful rally driver, winning a record 11 South African Drivers Championships between 1975 and 1988. He has also competed in Nascar events in the US, as well as saloon and modified saloon (track) racing in South Africa after retiring from rally driving.Van der Merwe was the face of Volkswagen and Audi during his rallying heyday, rejecting the more popular but more compact Japanese vehicles because of his lanky frame. In a popular 1987 television advert for Volkswagen, he famously demonstrated how the car “sticks to the road like boerewors to a braai grill”.Van der Merwe officially retired from racing in 2002, at the age of 56, but has since become integral to continuing the popularity of motorsport in South Africa as a race organiser and coach for up-and-coming drivers such as Gugu Zulu.Desiré WilsonSouth African racing driver Desire Wilson, one of only five women to have competed professionally in Formula One (https://t.co/28W0sZ8yjB) pic.twitter.com/0KfzltJbUl— CD Anderson (@bizarrojerri) October 11, 2016Desiré Wilson is one of only five women to have competed professionally in Formula One (F1). She raced in the 1980 British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch. While the race was not officially part of the greater Formula One championship because of the use of modified and retired F1 cars, at the time it was the only opportunity for female drivers to compete in F1 cars.Wilson won the race, the first and only woman to do so, and the Brands Hatch track named one of its grandstands after her. Breaking further into the male- dominated F1 world proved difficult, so Wilson went on to other racing disciplines, including Kart racing and Grand Tour endurance racing.She also attempted to break into American Indy open-wheel racing during the 1980s. Officially retiring from racing in 1997, Wilson continues to compete in exhibition races, such as the popular Goodwood Revival motor racing event in the UK.Along with other pioneering female drivers Divina Galica and Giovanna Amati, Wilson helped to pave the way for female racers in motorsport, including American Nascar driver Danica Patrick and Formula Three’s Katherine Legge.Brad BinderSouth African motorcycle racer and 2016 Moto3 World Champion Brad Binder (photo: Red Bull/KTM/Ajo) pic.twitter.com/nRrmadzbmy— CD Anderson (@bizarrojerri) October 11, 2016The 2016 Moto3 World Champion Brad Binder is one of South Africa’s up-and- coming international motorcycle racers.The 21-year-old become the first South African to win a Grand Prix championship since Jon Ekerold’s 1981 win for Yamaha. Binder rides for Red Bull/KTM/Ajo, and his title win at Alcañiz, Spain, on 25 September 2016, came during a consistently good year. He secured five wins, including first place at Silverstone, UK, and Mugello, Italy, the spiritual home of the sport.Binder began his racing career racing karts in Potchefstroom and started racing bikes professionally at the age of 10. Entering the Red Bull Rookies Cup championship in 2009 prepared him for a prolific international career that will, along with this year’s win, lead to the senior Moto2 championship in 2017, with aspirations to become as great as the 250cc legend Max Biaggi, who dominated and popularised the sport during the 1990s.Source: Motorsport South AfricaSouthAfrica.info reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

first_imgKarnataka Lokayukta Santosh Hegde on Sunday flayed the government’s stand to keep the prime minister out of the purview of Lokpal till he demits office, pointing to the possibilities of evidences being destroyed and also wriggling out by citing “error of judgement” in such cases.”That (keeping PM out of Lokpal) will not serve the purpose of having an effective investigation because there will not be any trails of the misconduct,” Hegde, a member of the Lokpal drafting committee, told PTI in an interview.If Lokpal were to conduct investigation after prime minister demitted office, there are possibilities of evidences being “swept clean” before that and there could be arguments that it was “error of judgement” (on the part of PM) and it is not a case of corruption, he said.Hegde, a former Supreme Court judge, was responding to questions on the government making clear its opposition to bringing the post of prime minister within the ambit of Lokpal till he demitted office.”Within the government, we feel prima facie, the prime minister should not be covered (under the Lokpal). But at the same time we want to make sure that if he demits office, he should not be exonerated from prosecution,” HRD minister Kapil Sibal, who is part of the joint drafting committee on Lokpal, had said yesterday.”Prime Minister was never out of it (Lokpal). Constitution never contemplated prime minister to be out of it,” Hegde said, adding that the Constitution never contemplated anybody in the country, except the President, out of the purview of the Prevention of Corruption Act.advertisementArguing that corruption is a crime against the country, Hegde said one cannot ignore acts of corruption. In a democracy, “every one is the same” and corruption was like any other offence in the Indian Penal Code, he said.”…why do you want to keep a class of people in office under government outside the purview of anti-corruption legislation?”, he asked.He also sought to know why an exception should be made (in case of prime minister) with regard to corruption that too at a time when it is “at a higher level” and major scams are coming out.The Karnataka Lokayukta saw Congress core group’s suggestion to the government to convene an all-party meeting on Lokpal bill as “delaying tactics”.Hegde said all parties had been given questionnaires by the government on the proposed legislation. In addition, all parties are represented in Parliament, where they would speak on the issue anyway, he said.Saying the all-party meeting would not serve any purpose, he said even if one assumed that parties held one view or the other, “can it be a law by itself ? It can’t be a law”.”It (all-party meeting) is not necessary because it’s going back to them only (in Parliament),” Hegde noted.He agreed with the government that the conduct of MPs inside Parliament should not come under the Lokpal but added that for him, vote for cash and asking questions for cash are all offences outside the House (and hence, they should come under Lokpal) “as nobody will take cash inside the House”.Hegde made light of the government statement that there is an agreement on 34 of the 40 points raised by the civil society members, saying these 34 were largely related to objects, procedures, clauses and things of nature on which there could be no dispute.He criticised the government stand against bringing defence deals under Lokpal investigation, saying corruption in such deals are like any other criminal offences.Hegde disagreed with Sibal’s remark that covering 40 lakh-odd central government employees under Lokpal would require a massive infrastructure independent of the government.”It’s not so,” Hegde said, adding that only Lokayukta need to be empowered in states and districts to nominate officials to take up investigation and report to Lokayukta, who would take the final decision.Hegde also opposed the government’s stand against bringing CBI and CVC under the Lokpal.He argued that once the anti-corruption wing of the CBI is transferred to the Lokpal, that wing would become redundant in CBI. “Their experience and expertise will be helpful to the Lokpal in the investigations.”Similarly, the CVC, which also investigates certain misconduct of central government employees, also need to be merged to let it work under Lokpal. “Why should they (CBI and CVC) work under government?”, Hegde asked.- With PTI inputsFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.advertisementlast_img read more

To help the development of our reserve team players, we have heavily subsidised their annual membership fees.”We are delighted to announce that Wilf Zaha has contacted the club to make a substantial financial contribution to support the development of our amateur players.

But, even by his own imagination, he would have probably been stunned to see that what he started in a hired house in Delhi’s Daryaganj, with all of 12 students, has grown to become India’s premier institution for commerce and economics.Today, the Shri Ram College of Commerce attracts students from all corners of the country. They come seeking top quality education and highest standards of excellence. The student composition at SRCC is uniform-most set foot here after topping their school, city or state in the 12 boards. The other group of achievers is one that has made a mark in the sporting arena.SRCC passouts go places. The academically inclined make it to renowned national and international institutions – IIM, Delhi School of Economics, London School of Economics to name a few. Placement records are enviable, with no top recruiter giving SRCC a miss, from Google, Uber, Deutsche Bank, Citibank to McKinsey.What sets SRCC apart is its liberal and energetic atmosphere. The SRCC Business Conclave, arguably the biggest undergraduate management festival in India, has in the past seen participation by 10,000 students and attendance by the likes of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bharti Enterprises founder-chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal, Infosys co-founder N.R.

first_imgNEW ORLEANS — LeBron James usually has his fun in June, when the Miami Heat have won NBA championships the last two years.Doesn’t mean he’s OK with losing in February.And he certainly won’t stand for his team getting picked on.Three straight times he had left a loser, and he was even more driven for this All-Star game after a half season of his conference getting ridiculed for its mediocrity.“We’ve been getting killed a lot this season, talking about the Eastern Conference is pretty bad, it’s a two-man race and we’re not holding up our end of the bargain,” James said. “So it was special to get this win.”Kyrie Irving had 31 points and 14 assists and was voted the MVP, Carmelo Anthony made a record eight 3-pointers and scored 30 points, and the East stopped a three-game losing streak with a 163-155 victory over the West in the highest-scoring All-Star game ever. “We took this one personal a bit,” Irving said.James had a steal and dunk on the first possession, long before defense usually shows up in the All-Star game.“We wanted this win,” James said. “They beat us the last three years and they had a lot of bragging rights, so to be able to come through being down 18 was huge.”Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin each finished with 38 points, four shy of Wilt Chamberlain’s All-Star game record, for the West. But the East scored the final 10 points to pull out a game it trailed by 18.“They started making shots and we didn’t get stops and we went a little bit cold,” said Griffin, who shot 19 of 23, setting a record for field goals made.Irving scored 15 points in the fourth quarter. James had 22 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.The 318 points broke the record of 303 set in 1987.Durant finished with 10 rebounds and six assists, but the West was shut out after his 3-pointer gave it a 155-153 lead with 1:59 left. Indiana’s Paul George made three free throws, Anthony nailed his final 3-pointer, and James scored to make it 161-155. George closed it out with two more free throws and finished with 18 points.“Both teams played extremely well, we just lost,” Durant said.The game that usually doesn’t get tight until the final minutes was close throughout the fourth quarter, neither team leading by more than four until the final minute.Chris Paul had 11 points and 13 assists, and first-time All-Star Stephen Curry had 12 points and 11 assists for the West. But the best point guard on the floor was Irving, who shot 14 of 17 and helped the East ring up 87 points in the second half after it surrendered a record 89 in the first.In a colorful tribute to New Orleans, players wore sneakers and socks that ranged from green and blue to orange and purple, making the game look like a Mardi Gras parade.The parade was one of layups and dunks for the West, which scored 44 points in the first quarter and 45 in the second. Griffin had 18 points in the first quarter and Durant had 22 at halftime, both two shy of records set by Glen Rice in 1997.And there was plenty of music, the rosters and starting lineups introduced around a concert by Pharrell Williams, who was joined by his own All-Stars in Nelly, Busta Rhymes, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Snoop Dogg.Magic Johnson led a band, too, encouraging the All-Stars to join him in singing Happy Birthday after the first quarter to Hall of Famer Bill Russell. The NBA’s greatest champion was celebrating his 80th.The All-Stars played better than they sang. The East finished with 61 percent shooting, needing all sorts of offense after it simply couldn’t defend Durant and Griffin.Durant made six 3-pointers and raised his career scoring average in the All-Star games to a record 30.6 points.Outside of the ugly sleeved jerseys, it was a good look for the NBA’s midseason showcase, bouncing back strongly from an uneven All-Star Saturday night.The new format of the slam dunk contest Saturday wasn’t a hit, but every night is a dunk contest when Griffin is involved.The guy who once jumped over a car to win a slam dunk contest had eight slams in the first 11 minutes, the backboard often barely done shaking from the last one when he threw down the next.James Harden started for the West in place of Kobe Bryant, who was elected by the fans but was knocked out by a broken left knee. Bryant said before the game his recovery is “coming slowly” but hopes to be back in another All-Star game.With Bryant sitting out and longtime regulars Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett not selected, it was a chance for the younger guys to make their mark. The rosters were loaded with players 25 and younger, including first-time starters George, Irving, Curry and Kevin Love.The All-Star newcomers also included official Violet Palmer, who became the first female to referee a major U.S. sports league’s All-Star game.(BRIAN MAHONEY, AP Basketball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgThe Indian athletes participating in the Youth Olympics are missing their Indian food in Buenos Aires, Argentina and have taken up the matter with the chef de mission Gurudutta Bhakta.Bhakta has received complaints from athletes about the unavailability of Indian food and the chef de mission has promptly said that the food-related issues being faced by the athletes will be sorted out soon.There were also reports stating that one of the athletes in Buenos Aires even fainted due to the non-availability of food. However, Bhakta had denied any such event.Bhakta has said that the cuisine issue has been spoken about with the organisers and the Indian food will soon be available for the athletes.”There were complaints by athletes regarding the food here because only Asian food is available and there is no Indian food.

Ahead of the Asian Games 2018, there were reports in the media that Indian athletes were not happy with their rooms and had complained about the food.However, two days before the start of the multi-sport event, India’s chef de mission Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh said that athletes were happy with the arrange and they were especially delighted with the food because it was very similar to Indian food.”No, no complaints. No one has any. We are getting such good food, there is Dal (lentil), then there is South Indian food, there is paneer (cottage cheese), chicken. Everything is there. Well, if one gets good food and a place to sleep, what else do you need? So it’s all good,” Singh had said.advertisementHowever, during the course of the tournament, Indian table tennis star Achanta Sharath Kamal posted a picture of his dinner after his matches at the Asian Games 2018 Village in Jakarta, captioning it as, “After a gruelling 3 hr long match, this is what we get to eat for dinner at the #AsianGames2018.

The HD Kumaraswamy led Congress-JD(S) government failed to survive trust vote in the Karnataka Assembly on Tuesday, with the coalition falling short of majority in the 224-member House.

While the Opposition BJP has 105 MLAs in the House and the support of two Independents, the ruling coalition has 101 MLAs on its side on paper. However, as many as 20 coalition MLAs were absent from the House, reducing the number of the ruling government to 99.

first_img(Leo Arcand with his partner Shawna and children Morningstar, 18 months, and Sakihitiwin, 7. The family drove down from Driftpile First Nation to the Bear Claw Art Gallery in Edmonton where his soap stone carvings are on display. He said his life has been “Like a Song.” APTN/Brandi Morin) Brandi Mori APTN National NewsA First Nations artist from Alexander First Nation in Alberta is quickly becoming world famous after one of his works was gifted to U.S. President Barack Obama by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Washington D.C. Thursday.Leo Arcand, who now calls Driftpile First Nation home, drove to the Bear Claw Art Gallery in Edmonton to celebrate his art being recognized.“It’s a great honour. What are the odds of having the prime minister choose one of your works to give to another world leader?” said Arcand. “I’m still absorbing it.”The soap stone carving of an eagle and a human intertwined that was given as the gift has deep meaning, said Arcand who conducts prayer for inspiration before creating his artwork.“The meaning of the carving was love, humanity, courage, working together. The spiritual aspect of it was to bring together the human form, the spirit animal representing mother earth and the human representing humanity itself,” he said.Since learning of his art going to the White House, Arcand said his life has been “like a song.”The stunning news came as a complete surprise to Arcand Thursday afternoon. The Bear Claw got a call from the Prime Minister’s Office just over a month ago and things unfolded from there.“They were looking at a few different pieces and decided on ‘Courage’”, said Hope Wright, of the Bear Claw gallery. “But they said we had to keep it on ‘the down low’ and if it’s chosen as a gift to a world leader they’d let us know.”Little did the Bear Claw or Arcand ever suspect the work would be given to the most famous leader in the world.He said he believes it’s a symbol of reconciliation that Trudeau took with him to the U.S.“Yes, I believe it’s a symbol, and that things happen for a reason,” said Arcand, who has been soap carving for 25 years and working full time in art for almost two decades.He’s also grateful for the support of the Bear Claw Art Gallery which has showcased Indigenous art for over 40 years.Since word broke of Arcand’s eagle carving gifted to the U.S. president the phones of the gallery have been ringing off the hook. Indigenous art is flying off the shelves, said owner Jackie Bugera.“In our 40 years of selling and representing First Nation artists we’ve never had this kind of media response to an artist the way the media has really embraced Leo and his work,” she said. “Times are definitely changing. 40 years ago First Nations galleries couldn’t even get native gallery’s to represent them. I think there’s so much more appreciation of the culture and the art. And I’ve always believed that art is a way of learning about culture. You can explain culture, go see the art. Go see it.”Arcand said he is “rich in his culture” and that helps to express his gifts within to the world.“Thank you (Trudeau) very much for selecting my work. It’s truly an honour. It’s truly a gift. I think there’s a lot of spiritual happening there because I do come from a spiritual background. As you can see in my work,” said [email protected]@songstress28last_img read more

first_imgVICTORIA – British Columbia’s labour minister has appointed an economist to lead a commission to advise the government on boosting the province’s minimum wage to $15 an hour.Prof. Marjorie Griffin Cohen of Simon Fraser University will chair the Fair Wages Commission, which also includes Ken Peacock, vice-president at the Business Council of British Columbia, and Ivan Limpright, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union.The commission is expected to deliver a report with a timeline to raise the minimum wage within 90 days of its first meeting.The New Democrats had previously set a deadline of 2021 to raise the minimum wage but Labour Minister Harry Bains said that will now be up to the commission to determine.“We want to de-politicize this whole process so that they consult with small businesses, consult with workers, consult with the community leaders to make sure that they come back with the recommendations that will give small businesses at least a gradual, predictable, and common sense increases so they have certainty to adjust their cost of labour over a period of time,” he said.The NDP had promised to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour but after forming a government it agreed with the Green party to set up a commission that would oversee regular rate reviews.The commission will also review wages of liquor servers and agricultural workers that are tied to separate rates.Bains said the commission has also been asked to report on closing the gap between the minimum and living wage, which varies between communities.Cohen said average hourly wages in B.C. are lower than the national average.“These low wages have contributed to growing inequality and poverty for many working people and their families,” she said.The commission has a budget of $490,000 over two years, which will largely fund travel and consultations.last_img read more

first_imgWASHINGTON – A rising stock market lifted U.S. household wealth to a record $106.9 trillion in the April-June quarter, the culmination of a decade of economic recovery but a gain that is concentrated largely among the most affluent.The value of Americans’ stock and mutual fund portfolios rose $800 billion last quarter, while home values increased $600 billion, the Federal Reserve said Thursday. Total household wealth is now 2.1 per cent higher than in the first quarter, when it was $104.7 trillion.The Fed’s report came on a day when a wave of buying on Wall Street sent U.S. stocks surging and lifted both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index to all-time highs. The Dow has gained nearly 8 per cent this year, the S&P nearly 10 per cent.Household net worth reflects the value of assets like homes, bank accounts and stocks minus debts like mortgages and credit cards. The data aren’t adjusted for inflation or population growth.They also don’t reflect the experiences of most U.S. households. Stock market wealth has been flowing disproportionately — and increasingly — to the most affluent households. The richest one-tenth of Americans own about 84 per cent of the value of stocks. That’s up from 81 per cent just before the Great Recession began in late 2007.That trend is concerning to some economists, who regard such sizable disparities in wealth as unhealthy for an economy. When lower- and middle-income people don’t share much in overall prosperity, many are forced to absorb more debt and take other financial risks.“I would be happy in a world where we saw big stock increases — if stocks were more broadly distributed across the population,” said Josh Bivens, director of research at the liberal Economic Policy Institute. “The fact that is where most of the gains are going is worrisome.”In theory, greater household wealth can speed the economy by making consumers feel richer and more likely to spend. But most consumers are spending less of their wealth than they did before the recession began, economists have found.Americans are saving nearly 7 per cent of their incomes, according to Commerce Department figures. That figure has remained fairly steady for five years even as the stock market has set new highs and average home prices have increased faster than most people’s wages. That trend suggests that many people remain cautious about cashing in their wealth, economists say, perhaps because they regard it as less stable than in the past.The rising concentration of wealth among affluent and educated Americans is another factor why the nation’s increased net worth isn’t accelerating the pace of consumer spending. Richer households are less likely to spend their wealth gains than middle- or lower-income households are.America’s richest 10 per cent of households were nearly 120 times wealthier than the lower middle class in 2016, the most recent year for which figures are provided in a separate Fed report. That is up from 112 times in 2013. (The lower middle class was defined as those whose wealth placed them between the 25th and 50th percentiles of net worth.)The top 10 per cent had an average net worth of $5.34 million; for the lower middle class, the figure was $44,700.In 2008, the year the financial crisis erupted, U.S. household net worth was $58.9 trillion. Nearly a decade later, it has almost doubled.Sharp disparities in wealth also cut across racial lines. The median white household has a net worth of $171,000, according to Fed data. That’s about 10 times the typical net worth for a black household of $17,200. For Latinos, it was $20,700. (The median is the point at which half the population has more and half has less.)The Fed revised its previous quarterly data to show that household wealth was higher earlier this year than previously reported. Household wealth in the first quarter is now about $4 billion higher than was original reported, mostly because of higher pension reserves than previously estimated.___AP Economics Writer Josh Boak contributed to this report.last_img read more

Rabat – Following the response of millions of users worldwide to Facebook’s new tool ‘Celebrate Pride’, critics say that the tool might be another one of Facebook’s psychological experiments on users.On Friday, Facebook launched ‘Celebrate Pride’, a new tool that allows users to apply a rainbow filter to their profile picture in celebration of the US Supreme Court’s decision in favor of same-sex marriage nationwide.While millions of users hailed Facebook’s initiative, some say that Facebook’s intentions were not noble, revealing that the new tool might have been a psychology test on the social network’s users. According to the Daily Mail, critics say Facebook is using it to monitor how views spread online.Facebook set up this tool to let people alter their profile picture, but the concern is that Facebook is able to get an unprecedented insight into how it can influence people, experts said.MIT network scientist Cesar Hidalgo said on Facebook,“This is probably a Facebook experiment. The question is, how long will it take for people to change their profile pictures back to normal.”While Hidalgo’s Facebook update was meant to be a joke, (see article by the Atlantic) online media, including the Daily Mail, took his joke out of context and reported that he is “accusing Facebook to be performing an experiment.”A Facebook spokesperson, on the other hand, denied these accusations, stressing that ‘’Celebrate Pride is not an experiment but rather something that enables people to show their support of the LGBTQ community on Facebook.’’“This is one Facebook study I want to be included in!” wrote Stacy Blasiola, a communications Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois, when she changed her profile.This is not the first time that Facebook has come under fire for allegedly performing experiments on users.A report in The Atlantic confirmed that in 2013 the company released a study in which it admitted to conducting research into how to influence users changed their profile picture to a red equals sign in support of gay marriage. read more

A random check of about a dozen stores indicated that most were sold out.A Verizon store in New York City said the 32 and 64 gigabyte models, but not the 16 GB version, were available. A Sprint store in a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota, said all but the most expensive 64 GB iPhone 5s were sold out.“Before we were even scheduled to open, we were pretty much out,” said Eric Rayburn, a worker at a Sprint store in Phoenix.The iPhone 5 went on sale Friday, igniting intense interest around the world. Apple’s website said phones bought online would ship in three to four weeks. Verizon’s website said they would ship by Oct. 19.It’s hardly uncommon for supply shortages to make it difficult to get new iPhones in the first days after their release. For Apple, the iPhone introduction is the biggest revenue driver of the year.

Enbridge, pipeline company behind 2010 Michigan oil spill, is denied dredge pad permit by The Associated Press Posted Aug 23, 2013 10:48 am MDT COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Enbridge Inc., which was responsible for a massive oil spill three years ago in southwestern Michigan, was denied a dredge pad permit as it continues the cleanup effort.The Comstock Township planning commission unanimously voted late Thursday to deny a special exception permit for the Morrow Lake dredge pad, which holds oil-contaminated sediment removed from the Kalamazoo River until it’s hauled away. Enbridge will have to find a new place to put the pad.The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency wants Enbridge to do additional dredging of the river at the delta in Morrow Lake as part of the ongoing cleanup efforts from the 2010 oil spill near Marshall, and it has ordered the company to finish the dredging by Dec. 31, WOOD-TV reported.More than 800,000 gallons spewed into the Kalamazoo River and a tributary creek after an underground pipeline ruptured, and oil flowed about 35 miles before it was contained.Some raised pollution concerns during Thursday’s meeting, which the Kalamazoo Gazette said had nearly five hours of public comment and discussion.One of them was Larry Bell, the owner of Bell’s Brewery, who filed a lawsuit against Enbridge over concerns airborne pollutants from the dredge pad could affect his nearby production facility.Bell, who said he spent more than $50,000 fighting Enbridge, said during the meeting that it was the most emotionally stressful issue with which he had ever dealt.Company spokesman Jason Manshum said that while Enbridge appreciated the time and effort the Comstock Township planning commission put into making its decision, there still is an EPA deadline to meet. Calgary, Alberta-based Enbridge had requested an extension, but the EPA denied it, saying it was premature.“Not getting site plan approval tonight … does make it more challenging to complete that initiative by the timeline in front of us,” Manshum said. “So now, we’ll go back and work with both federal and state regulators.”Meanwhile, Enbridge is working on a new 210-mile pipeline that will run from Stockbridge, Mich., to Griffith, Ind., as part of an artery pumping oil between Canada and Midwest refineries.Company officials have said it will feature thicker, higher-grade steel designed to prevent a repeat of the Michigan spill. An investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board determined the 2010 rupture was caused by cracks and corrosion, and the agency faulted Enbridge for failing to take steps that might have prevented it.“Everything we do here in the state of Michigan is shadowed by what happened at Marshall, and it’s our goal to keep that from ever happening again,” Enbridge project director Thomas Hodge told the Lansing State Journal.The $1.3 billion project, which began last month near Stockbridge, has been hampered by environmental protesters who have linked arms or climbed trees to temporarily block the work.

first_imgKomatsu Australia has introduced the HM400-3M0 articulated dump truck (ADT), incorporating it says “a number of improvements to increase productivity, including an advanced traction and transmission system, and higher dump body capacity.” The HM400-3M0 is powered by a Komatsu SAA6D140E-6 engine rated at 350 kW, allowing it to haul a 40 t payload at speeds up to 55.9 km/h. According to Richard Feehely, Komatsu Australia’s National Business Manager, Quarries, improvements over the HM400-3M0’s predecessor – the HM400-2 – include significantly higher payload capacity, better operating performance, lower fuel consumption, increased operator comfort and enhanced serviceability – maximising productivity and reducing operating costs.“The HM400-3M0 incorporates a number of groundbreaking improvements in articulated dump truck technology, leveraging on our many years’ of experience in traction control and transmission systems with our dozers and large mining rigid dump trucks,” he said. “As a result, we have developed an articulated dump truck that offers unprecedented levels of control and efficiency when operating in the most challenging underfoot conditions, while delivering the highest levels of reliability and efficiency.” A major feature of the HM400-3M0 is the new Komatsu Traction Control System (K-TCS), which automatically provides optimum traction when operating in soft ground conditions. As ground conditions worsen, speed sensors located on four wheels detect tyre slippage, and automatic application of the inter-axle differential lock occurs. If tyre slippage continues to be detected, any of the four independently operated brakes can be applied to the slipping wheels to regain traction. “This technology behind our K-TCS, which is unique to articulated dump trucks, comes directly from our experiences in optimising traction control with our dozers and rigid mining trucks,” Feehely said.The new truck also incorporates Komatsu Advanced Transmission with Optimum Modulation Control System (K-ATOMiCS), which has long been a feature of Komatsu’s large mining trucks. This is a six-speed, fully automatic transmission that uses an advanced electronic system to eliminate shift shock and torque cut-off to improve operator and engine efficiency, and maximise powertrain life. “The electronic system automatically selects the ideal gear based on vehicle speed, engine speed and the shift position chosen, resulting in powerful acceleration, smooth down shifting and synchronised engine speed when climbing slopes,” said Feehely. “Key advantages of K-ATOMiCS include minimised operator fatigue, ensuring the load remains in the truck body and increased productivity.”A 510 kW capacity retarder fitted to the HM400-3M0 allows the operator to select the optimum operating speed for downhill travel and fully loaded hauls, eliminating acceleration generated by the grade of the slope and minimising wear and tear on the braking system. Feehely said an optimised body design on the HM400-3M0 had seen a significant increase in payload and body capacity. “The HM400-3M0 is now a true 40 t capacity truck, with its payload increasing by 3.5 t compared with the previous HM400-2. It’s gone from 36.5 t on the earlier model to 40 t, while heaped capacity has gone from 22.3 m3 to 24 m3,” he said. The HM400-3M0’s loading height of 3,164 mm allows it to be easily matched with 36 to 55 t excavators, or 4.2 m3 to 5.7 m3 wheel loaders.In addition, the Komatsu HM400-3M0 is equipped with a factory-fitted Payload meter (PLM), allowing production volume and working conditions of the dump truck to be analysed directly via a personal computer. The truck’s payload is also displayed for the operator on a 7 in LCD monitor in the cab, while an external display signals to the loading tool as the truck reaches payload capacity. PLM data can be downloaded directly to a PC via a PLM cable, and is also transmitted via KOMTRAX. This allows wide range of payload data, including Carried Load, Cycle Count, and Overload Count to be monitored and filtered for daily, weekly or monthly reports and analyses. Komatsu has also significantly improved the cab design on the new truck, providing a comfortable and quiet work environment designed to maximise operator productivity, as well as improving visibility and site safety. Improved operator comfort features include interior noise levels of 72 dBA, and a high-back heated air-ride seat with a three-point safety belt.“We have now located the operator’s seat right in the centre of the cab,” Feehely said. “This, combined with a short nose design and rounded engine hood significantly improve visibility out the front, while a colour rearview camera, linked to its own 7 inch monitor, ensures greater safety when operating around other equipment and personnel. “The ROPS/FOPS Level 2 certified cab features a new designed rounded front dash panel with easy-to-reach switches,” he said. “In addition, the dashboard has been redesigned, incorporating a new high resolution 7 in LCD monitor giving enhanced capabilities and detailed information display. “It allows the operator to easily modify settings for a wide range of items such as auto idle shutdown or the auto-reversing fan; to check operational records, such as driving history or fuel consumption; or to see when the next maintenance interval is required.” The monitor also offers the operator the option of using Komatsu’s ECO guidance function, which provides operational tips to reduce fuel consumption.Feehely said Komatsu has also worked to minimise the time required for daily checks and service access. This includes a newly designed engine hood for easy access, increased cooling capacity, and two standard hydraulically driven auto-reversing fans to help keep the radiator and charge air cooler clean. In addition, the HM400-3M0 is fitted with Komatsu’s exclusive EMMS (Equipment Management Monitoring System) incorporating enhanced diagnostic features to give the operator and technicians greater monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities. EMMS continuously monitors all critical systems, preventative maintenance requirements, and provides troubleshooting assistance to minimise diagnosis and repair time. It is integrated with Komatsu’s KOMTRAX remote monitoring system.last_img read more

Firstlyits extremely unlikely that the Wall Street Journal reporters question was meant for this socio-economic strata He was probably referring to the Human Development Report of 2011 that says that in Gujarat44 per cent children below five suffer from malnutrition and nearly 70 per cent are anaemic Its almost impossible to believe that an astute politician such as Modi would connect body image with the shameful truth that theres not enough to eat for many children in India Modis sneering comment on beauty and weight-conscious girls is typical of an older Indian generation that grew up in a country of scarcitywhere eating wholeheartedly was considered a great privilegeto be valuednot cast aside Even now at Indian weddingsthe food takes up half the budgetwith rows and rows of different cuisines proudly displayedmost of which cannot be consumed on one evening As kidsweve been urged to finish our foodwith stories of how lucky we are compared to Indias starving millions I still cant leave food on my plate without a sense of guilt Over generationsthe idea of hospitality has come to mean plying guests with copious amounts of food and weight watching has traditionally been frowned uponlinked to vanity and frivolousness Compare that to modern city living nowwhere most people I know eat before going out to partiesso that they dont succumb to greasy snacks Modi is right when he says the middle class is beauty conscious and weight conscious And thats something to celebratenot criticise Anorexia is far smaller a problem than obesity all over the developing world Eventuallypeople who are weight conscious evolve to some form of health consciousness too To reach that awarenessmany of us have to first experience the circuitous pathof fad diets like eating before sixno carbs at nightraw food dietsnone of which work over time It all boils down to a mathematical equation what you burn has to be more or equal to what you shove in If youre motivated more by the

dream — that of playing for the country at one of the biggest stages in international football Komal Thatal a sprightly 17-year-old boy from Sikkim did not have the means to buy a football and he had to play with a ball made of rags or plastic in his childhood "My parents are tailors and we have a small shop at my native place When I was a child I used to play with round objects made of cloth or plastic" Thatal told PTI from the training base in Goa His father Arun Kumar and mother Sumitra have been saving from their meagre income to buy the playing kits for Thatal including a pair of boots

family’s income When I was a child I did not know where these boots are coming from nor did I know that the money came from selling clothes on the footpath I just played football which was my passion

ill-considered because they suggested Indias glee at Pakistans adversityand reinforced the image of Delhis unreconstructed hostility to Islamabad They also come at a time when India is trying to revive a working relationship with Pakistan Krishna himself had worked hard over the last few months to renew the dialogue with Pakistan that was stalled after the terror attack on Mumbai in November 2008 Delhi is set to host Pakistans foreign secretary and foreign minister later this month to review the progress in the first round of talks This was not the moment for a perverse Indian welcome of US aid to Pakistan being suspended What is more troublinghoweveris the lack of appreciation in our political class of the complex dynamic that has enveloped US-Pakistan relations since the killing of Osama bin Laden by American Special Forces deep inside Pakistan on May 2 This is not just another familiar moment in what is widely seen as a transactional relationship between Pakistan and the US Pakistan has been at once the most sought after and most sanctioned ally of the US for nearly six decades Washington has cut off aid to Islamabad beforebut only to embrace the Pakistan army again and again Washington and Islamabad find themselves in a very different situation now Unlike on the previous occasionsthe US cant simply walk away from Pakistan today Without changing Pakistans strategic

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a couple of weeks ago that there will be consequences if the Pakistan army does not keep its promises on combating terror That warning was followed by a series of leaks in the New York Times that damned the ISI for promoting regional terrorits complicity in the killing of the Pakistani journalist Saleem Shahzadand exposed the links between the Pakistan army and the global nuclear black-market As the Obama administration turns up the heatthe Pakistan armys reaction has been cool and composed Rawalpindi has declared that it can do without American military aid In facta few weeks agothe armys corps commanders pompously called for the diversion of the US military aid to the civilian sector Kayani is playing hard ball Traditionalists in Delhi would say Washington and Rawalpindi will sort things outand kiss and make up sooner than laterbecause they need each other so much Others might argue that Kayani will find it hard to comply with the American demands without undermining his position at home and abandoning the armys presumed interests in Afghanistan and India Some would point to the explicit debate in Pakistan on ending the historic strategic dependence on the US and looking for other optionsincluding China and Saudi Arabia There is no evidence so far in the public domain that either Beijing or Riyadh is eager to replace
