first_imgKatherine Robinson Wednesday evening, professor of anthropology Agustín Fuentes delivered the first annual Sorin Scholars Lecture at Hayes-Healy Center. Each year, the Sorin Scholars organization picks a theme to encourage discussion and reflection on an intellectual problem. In light of this year’s theme, inequality, Fuentes discussed the relationship between race and inequality in his lecture “Race, Inequality, and Reality: What We Know and Why It Matters.”Fuentes said one of the biggest problems the United States has had and still has today is the inability to talk effectively about race.“Race and inequality have a particular relationship in our present and in our history,” Fuentes said.  “…This is one [issue] that has a very high potential for change in the future. This is not a fixed reality, but it is an important one.“If we don’t understand it, think about it, talk about it, [and] engage with it; it is not going to change. Because right now, it is not sustainable, and it is not right.”Fuentes said in our society, almost everyone believes that Black, White, Latino, Asian, and others are distinct biological entities.“I want to demonstrate what we know from rigorous scientific studies, that races as we use now are not biological entities,” Fuentes said. “We all have 100 percent of the same genes. What varies is that each gene comes in multiple forms – two, 17, 140 – and it’s the variation in the presence of those different forms in a population that is human genetic variation.”Fuentes said that most racial definitions perceived by society, such as gene types, body forms, skin colors and genetic diseases, are not backed by biology.“All of our racial definitions are socially constructed,” he said. “We made them up, and we use them, but they have real effects. Race is not biological, but race is distributed and impacted in unequal ways by the structures – the political, historical and social structures.”Social contexts and the expectations of individuals in a society can have a massive impact on health, he said.“Race is not biological, but it can become biology,” Fuentes said. “Racial inequality creates biological differences in people.”Fuentes stated that we are not in a post-racial society, and that race matters in our society.“So when you are with a cluster of your friends, or your family, or in a classroom – if someone said something that is wrong, that is not true, that is not based on the biological and social historical facts that we have available, it is your response to act,” he said.Tags: agustin fuentes, biological issues with race, racial issues, sorin scholars lecturelast_img read more

first_imgLeading plant genomics researchers and breeders from the University of Georgia and across the world will meet May 18-21 at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology in Huntsville, Alabama, to discuss the latest genomic technology in plant breeding and crop improvement. Presented by HudsonAlpha and the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the CROPS 2015 conference will focus on improving crop sustainability through genomics. The conference will be co-chaired by Jeremy Schmutz, HudsonAlpha faculty investigator and manager of the Genome Sequencing Center, along with Scott Jackson, director of the UGA Center for Applied Genetic Technologies, and Peggy Ozias-Akins, director of the UGA Institute of Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics.CROPS 2015 will bring together leading researchers who are applying genomic-based techniques to crop improvement, plant molecular breeding experts and traditional breeders interested in applying these techniques within their crops of interest.“We are honored to partner with the HudsonAlpha Institute to bring the best researchers in the world—working on the application of genetics and biotechnology to crop improvement—to share their cutting-edge research with crop scientists from around the world,” Jackson said. Tremendous progress has been made in plant genomics in just a few short years. Plant researchers have gone from generating a single reference genome for a single plant to generating hundreds of reference plant genomes. “Applying genomic technology in plant research is very powerful because we can actually breed plants to achieve a desired outcome,” Schmutz said. “With the advancement of genomic technology, we are able to identify the target traits in a plant that may be crossed to produce coveted characteristics.” For more information about speakers, abstracts, poster submissions or to register, visit read more

first_imgBy Dialogo April 14, 2010 Operation Angel Thunder started on April 12 in Tucson, Arizona (US). Seventeen members of Brazilian Air Force (FAB) units that perform search-and-rescue missions are participating in the exercise. During the training, they will have the opportunity to share experiences and improve procedures, via exchanges with military personnel from participating countries, in rescue operations (Combat Search and Rescue, C-SAR) and humanitarian actions. “The Brazilian Air Force (FAB) already possesses a strong doctrine on this type of mission, and this exchange will allow us to observe the tactics used by other countries and to draw from this comparison new lessons, better adjusted to our reality,” explains Major Potiguara, Commander of the 2nd/10th Aviation Group, one of the FAB’s main aviation units for search-and-rescue operations. For Lt. Colonel Lubas, Commander of Parasar, an elite rescue unit, operating alongside Special Forces from the United States, Venezuela and Chile will provide a new approach to the squadron’s work, since it will allow a new vision of the use of special operations in humanitarian actions. “The whole experience in this exercise, the largest and most complex in the world, is very valuable for our air force, since we will be able to compare what we do to the latest developments in these operations to rescue people in a hostile environment,” said the Commander of the 5th/8th Aviation Group, Lt. Colonel Marques. Operation Angel Thunder will continue until the 24th, with 1,200 participants expected, including military personnel and civilians, and the use of 60 aircraft in actual air missions.last_img read more

(Timothy Bolger/Long Island Press)In what is becoming an all-too-real re-run of the plot to 1993’s Groundhog Day (and more than enough reason to seriously question the psychic abilities of our furry, somewhat cute meteorologists Malverne Mel and Holtsville Hal), Long Islanders can again expect…wait for it…more snow.And this new snow will fall…wait for it…wait for it…just in time for tomorrow’s morning commute.The National Weather Service has issued yet another Winter Weather Advisory and Hazardous Weather Outlook for parts of Long Island and the region, in effect for Tuesday, Feb. 18 from 4 a.m. till 4 p.m., forecasting snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches with as much as 3 to 5 inches possible.The snow will develop prior to daybreak Tuesday, it warns, and will fall moderately to locally heavy during the morning commute. The snow will gradually mix with and changeover to rain as the day progresses, it continues, before tapering off sometime in the afternoon.“Snowfall will make travel treacherous,” it states, “especially during the morning commute. In addition, heavy wet snow may cause some weak flat roof structures to collapse. Tree branches will also be susceptible to falling.”“A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties,” it explains. “Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving.”The new storm rolls into the region on the heels of the last, which dumped up to 8 inches of the white slippery stuff on parts of the Island Saturday. Temperatures in the upper 40s and reaching even the low 50s are expected later in the week.How did that movie end, again? Guess it’s worth watching at least one more time.last_img read more

Itmeans the maximum load that a vehicle may carry depends primarily on thevehicle’s maximum allowable gross vehicle weight. The law tolerates load thatexceeds less than five percent of the vehicle’s maximum allowable gross weight. Otayde said LTO-6 teams and deputizedpolicemen would be enforcing the prohibitions. Two sections of the law forbidoverloading – Section 32 (Exceeding Registered Capacity, Issuance ofConductor’s License, Validity and Fee) and Section 51 (Hitching to a Vehicle). The specific prohibitions are thefollowing: Therate of the motor vehicle user’s charge depends on the type of the vehicle thatis specified under Republic Act 8794 through a schedule of rates. So as not to overload, Otayde said,drivers must follow the authorized seating or cargo capacity of their vehicles. However, Otayde said, a JointAdministrative Order issued in June 2014 by LTO and the Department ofTransportation increased the fine to at least P6,000 to discourage violators. RISKY RIDE. The law is crystal clear: No person shall hang on to, or ride on, the outside or the rear end of any vehicle, and no person on a bicycle, roller skate or other similar device, shall hold fast to or hitch on to any moving vehicle. Also, no driver shall knowingly permit anyone to hitch on to or ride the outside or rear end of his vehicle. Violators face a still fine of at least P6,000, according to the Land Transportation Office.

IAN PAUL CORDERO * No driver shall allow any person toride on the running board, step board, or mudguard of his motor vehicle for anypurpose while the vehicle is in motion. According to LTO-6 spokesperson RizaOtayde, their central office reiterated an order for the strict enforcement ofthe prohibition, noting the increasing road mishaps due to overloading. Itreads: “(c) Penalty for Overloading: The Land Transportation Office or itsdeputized officer shall require the owner of a truck or trailer which is loadedin excess of the maximum allowable gross vehicle weight (GVW) to pay a penaltyin the amount equivalent to 25 percent of the MVUC applicable to the vehicle atthe time of infringement, provided that the penalty shall be waived forloadings exceeding the GVW by a tolerance of less than five percent, and thatno vehicle shall be permitted to proceed on the roadway if either a dual-wheelaxle load exceeds 13,500 kg or the vehicle load exceeds 150 percent of themaximum allowable GVW.” Section 6(Penalty forOverloading) reads: “An amountequivalent to 25 percent of the Motor Vehicle User’s Charge (MVUC) shall beimposed on trucks and trailers for loading beyond their prescribed grossvehicle weight: provided,That no axle load shall exceed 13,5000kgs.” “Indinaton mapaktan basi maaksidente kag may mautas nga kabuhi bangod lang sapagpanghingalit naton, so dapat magsunod kita sa laye,” stressedOtayde. Another law that prohibits overloadingis Republic Act 8794 (An Act Imposing aMotor Vehicle User’s Charge on Owners of All Types of Motor Vehicles and forOther Purposes).  This law ensuresthe adequate maintenance of national and provincial roads. ILOILO – Overloaded vehicles will beapprehended, announced the Land Transportation Office (LTO) in Region 6.Overloading of passengers and cargo is prohibited by Republic Act 4136 (LandTransportation and Traffic Code). * No person shall hang on to, or rideon, the outside or the rear end of any vehicle, and no person on a bicycle,roller skate or other similar device, shall hold fast to or hitch on to anymoving vehicle, and no driver shall knowingly permit any person to hang on toor ride, the outside or rear end of his vehicle or allow any person on abicycle, roller skate or other similar device to hold fast or hitch to hisvehicle. TheImplementing Rules and Regulations of this law states in detail the penalty forthe use of overloaded vehicles.

first_imgRelatedPosts Joe Aribo scoops Young Player, Goal of the season awards Ambrose pens Livington 18-month deal Ambrose set for Scotland return Efe Ambrose is delighted to join a club who share his philosophy in life after ending a frustrating spell by signing for Livingston. The former Hibernian and Celtic defender has signed an 18-month contract after spending more than six months without a club. The Nigeria international had been back in his homeland keeping his fitness up with his local club since leaving Derby last summer. Now he could face Hibernian on Saturday more than a year after his last competitive game came in an Edinburgh derby against Hearts on December 29, 2018. The 31-year-old had kept in touch with former Easter Road teammate Marvin Bartley and secured his help in sealing a return to Scotland. Ambrose said: “Marvin told me it was a great club and a great move for him and he said so many nice things about the club that I was really interested. “I watched the Scottish league a lot back in Africa and I told Marvin I wanted to move back to Scotland and could he help out. He spoke to the coaches and said they were interested. “I never thought they would be interested because I hadn’t played for six months. I have been training morning and evening back at home with my local team and they trusted me with that. I am not coming in for a pre-season, I am ready to go. “Unfortunately I could not come in January because of paperwork. My agent tried to do everything possible but they couldn’t get it done and I thought I had missed out when they signed another centre-back. “I thought it was another door shut and I was frustrated. I kept calling Marvin and he told me not to worry and I kept believing and praying. Last week everything turned round. “Even a day without football is not OK. I have the passion and drive to play football. I have been playing in Africa but I want to be playing in a competitive league. “I had another couple of offers but nothing concrete. So it was difficult, just hoping. “Then Livingston came in. I have watched them play and have seen the ambition of the club. “This is an opportunity for me to come back to the league and see what I can do to help Livingston do what they want to achieve this season – which is the top six and after that fight for the European spots. “Nothing is impossible in football. I always believe you can achieve anything you put your mind to, and I believe this club has that mindset too.” Ambrose invoked a clause in his contract to leave Hibs last January and join Derby but he failed to get into Frank Lampard’s team. “It wasn’t a disappointment because it was just three months,” he said. “It’s difficult in that position to break in because the team was doing well. “But what I got from there – the players, the coaching staff, the training – was massive and I enjoyed my time there. I never regretted the move.”Tags: Efe AmbroseMarvin BartleyScotlandlast_img read more

first_imgBaily Green will bid to get another deserved win to his name as he lines up in the Follow Punchestown On Facebook Chase. Sophie’s World, meanwhile, should prove hard to beat in the Panoramic Restaurant Mares Maiden Hurdle. De Name Escapes was an easy winner of a bumper at Clonmel in February for Liz Lalor and he makes his debut now for Noel Meade and JP McManus in the Festival Dreams Begin In Ireland With Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Maiden Hurdle. The son of Vinnie Roe has most to fear from Sandymount Duke, Klinnsman and Cabarete. The Punchestown Handicap Hurdle looks a competitive affair with Eight Till Late, Seeyouallincoppers, Shutter Island, Misty Lady, Lucky Pat and Rupert Lamb the main protagonists. The concluding Flat Race is another open contest, with Free Stone Hill, Kilclispeen, Touch A Million and Matchaway all likely to feature prominent in the betting. Three-times Grade Two winner Argocat is rated just 1lb inferior to Baily Green and he looks his biggest danger. The seven-year-old finished a decent fifth to Menorah at Sandown on his last outing and he is fitted with a tongue-strap for the first time. Make A Track won at Down Royal on his last start and cannot be dismissed, while Rathlin, who won this race in 2013, is another to consider. The opening 15 Euro Admission Rated Chase is another quality affair, with Indevan making his return to action. The Willie Mullins-trained gelding showed his liking for quick ground last summer, winning three in a row. He was last seen finishing second to Shanahan’s Turn in a Grade Two at Punchestown in November. Nicky Henderson brings across French Opera and he should give a good account of himself, while Gold Bullet (first-time tongue-strap), Real Steel, Shanpallas, Savello and Darwins Fox are other leading contenders. The Doorman, As De Pique, Winter Magic and Boss Croaker are a few for the shortlist in the Punchestown For Events Handicap Chase. The Mouse Morris-trained gelding went down by just half a length in the Grade One Boylesports Champion Chase at the Punchestown Festival in April and he again filled the runner-up spot at Killarney last month. He is stepped up to two miles and six furlongs for the first time and it will be interesting to see how the nine-times scorer gets on. Press Associationlast_img read more

International cricket is different,” he said.According to Bravo, the signs are good though and he is much closer to beng the player he was before the injury.“I have improved a lot. I am closer to playing now than I was three-four months ago. The surgery itself was successful. It’s just a matter of continuing my rehab programme.

first_imgAs the role of the Syracuse tight end expands, the recruiting specifications for the position do the opposite.The SU coaching staff has detailed the qualities it looks for to fulfill the tight end’s transforming identity, mainly an athlete with the speed and size to take on a multitude of offensive responsibilities, including blocking out of the back field.The only tight end or wide receiver that has committed to the Orange’s Class of 2015 thus far — Affton (Mo.) High School senior West Lindor — currently poses a dominant pass-catching and route-running threat. But in order to round out his game to contribute when he arrives at SU next year, he said that his speed and blocking need to be improved in his final high school season.“If you have a tight end that can block for the run and also take off, the linebackers are going to have to have another thing on their mind besides just stopping the run,” Lindor said. “If a football team knows how to utilize the tight end, it can really benefit them.”Ever since verbally pledging to the Orange on July 9, Lindor has been aware of the role he’s expected to play. He’s been working to fit that mold, one that running backs coach and Lindor’s main recruiter, DeAndre Smith, has been urging him to become.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBefore he heads to Syracuse next summer, Lindor says he’d like to refine his already potent speed, but most notably his pass- and run-blocking abilities.“I’ve been improving on my blocking because I want to be ready for the next level,” Lindor said. “I need to learn how to block better, especially at the next level with bigger pass-rushers.”To become even faster, Lindor said that he and his team will begin running sprints with resistance parachutes. He’ll also take longer runs to build up his endurance and lung capacity, vital for anyone hoping to play in Syracuse’s new no-huddle lists the 6-foot-4.5, 215-pounder as having run a 4.5-second 40-yard dash, which is even better than what SU tight ends coach Bobby Acosta desires for the position.“If we could get that big kid that could run a 4.6-4.7,” Acosta said, “he could do what the tight ends used to do here, blocking line and also be a pass receiver.”In the new role, Lindor may also have to line up alongside a tackle to block while the quarterback drops back to pass. Other times, he’ll have to retreat as a fullback and protect in the run game.Affton offensive tackle Davondre Love will be lining up next to Lindor for a fourth year this fall, and while he too said Lindor’s blocking can improve, he expects him to succeed with the Orange.“He’s not the best run blocker, but for his position, I think he’s a pretty good run blocker,” Love said. “Tight ends can be some of the most dangerous players. They can help you with the run game and, of course, the passing game.“I think he’ll be really good for Syracuse.”Lindor is anxious to assume a role in the Orange’s transformed offense, as his game already partially fits the need for not just a tight end, but also a wide receiver.Even with the position undergoing major changes, Lindor is excited about how he may be used.“I would say that the tight end is a very underrated position,” Lindor said. “Most colleges have slowed down on that roll, but I think the tight end position is actually a very important role.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on August 27, 2014 at 12:07 am Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidmanlast_img read more

Unlike Quadri, Polina Mikhailova finished the night as the most successful player of the competition as earlier in the day she had partnered colleague Yana Noskova to women’s doubles gold.To win the women’s Singles,  Mikhailova, the no.2 seed, recovered from a three games to nil deficit to beat Russian colleague, Yana Noskova, the no.4 seed, in the final (6-11, 6-11, 6-11, 11-8, 11-3, 15-13, 15-13).In the semi-final stage, Polina Mikhailova overcame Indian qualifier, Sreeja Akula (11-6, 12-10, 9-11, 11-7, 11-9), Yana Noskova accounted for Italy’s Deborah Vivarelli, the no.7 seed (12-10, 11-4, 7-11, 5-11, 11-8, 11-9). It was for Polina Mikhailova her second career win at an ITTF Challenge tournament in six women’s singles finals; the one prior success was in 2012 in Belarus.Quadri’s 2019 win had increased his Challenge series title to three having won the 2018 edition of the Nigeria Open as well as the 2017 Polish Open.But it was a disappointment for Nigeria’s duo of Olajide Omotayo and Segun Toriola as they had to settle for silver in the men’s doubles event.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Aruna Quadri last_img read more

first_imgAnd whenever Harrell does return to his team’s embrace, Rivers said it’s important that he – and all the players competing in the enclosed environment, as well as all other associated personnel – be aware of the psychological support that’s available.“I think it’s the untapped resource in our league,” Rivers said. “Not only just players but coaches, too. I don’t know why it’s always been taboo, but it has been and we have to do a better job of making it like a sprained ankle where you get treatment just like you do if you injured your knee or something like that.“I mean, we had three major things happening to our guys and my job then is just forget the coaching part, just to support. We have several therapists on staff, the league has a therapist here full-time and we should all seek it out.” “Some of the things are just human issues that it’s very difficult other than support,” Rivers said before Saturday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans at HP Field House. “Give your guys support that are going through tough things.“The league has always run the league and now they’re trying to run teams as well, because of the way they’re doing the bubble. And the bubble has been fantastic, but they’re also learning that there’s a lot of life that’s involved with each individual team. I think the media is learning that, too, because we’re all in the same place, so it’s accented when a guy leaves the bubble or when he has personal problems a lot more. That happens.“We were just unfortunate that it happened to three guys at the same time. There’s nothing you can do about that. You just roll with it and when they come back, they come back and you hope you’re ready.”Williams is nearing the end of his extended, 10-day quarantine he received because he stopped at a Atlanta gentlemen’s club, reportedly for food, while he was outside of the bubble to attend a funeral. Beverley finished a shorter quarantine and rejoined the team Thursday, immediately returning to action with 12 points in 16 minutes off the bench in the Clippers’ 103-101 bubble-opening loss to the Lakers.There is no timetable for Harrell’s return, Rivers said Saturday. For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum “I’ve talked to him,” said the Clippers’ 21st-year coach, who says he’s been fielding queries about the star reserve, who is having a career season, with bests in points (18.6 points) and rebounds (7.1). “I get asked from inside, like, ‘When is Trezz coming back?’ And my answer’s been the same: When he’s ready. When he’s ready he’ll come back. You can’t play if you’re not right mentally and because of the emotional part of it.“His grandmother is very tight with him, so all I told him is I love him and take your time. We’ll be ready with open arms when you come.”Related Articlescenter_img Montrezl Harrell is hurting. The Clippers forward has shared some of those feelings publicly the past the few days on Instagram, including Saturday, when he posted a tribute to his grandmother, whom he’d left the team and the bubble to be with before she died.“I LOVE U GRANDMA,” wrote Harrell, the 27-year-old from North Carolina, in an Instagram story that continued, in part, “I don’t know when I will Stop crying prolly never every day I wake up I’m talk to you every day till I see you again.“I don’t know how to feel right now I feel lost empty you are my queen, my best friend, my light in all darkness. I never had you leaving my side.”Harrell left the bubble July 17. He’s one of three members of the Clippers who lost a loved one since the team arrived on the closed NBA campus at Walt Disney World Resort in early July; Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley also left following the deaths of people dear to them. And JaMychal Green’s arrival was delayed after his 100-year-old grandmother died.

first_imgYes, Horan hollered in the stadium tunnel.MORE: Naeher’s save the perfect answer to doubters“Well that was not needed,” said England defender Steph Houghton, speaking with London-based talkSPORT. “It’s disrespectful.”Indeed, we have reached the point in the evolution of the U.S. women’s national team where they cannot celebrate in blowouts, cannot celebrate enormous goals in enormous games and cannot even shout when they’re in the relative privacy of the stadium tunnel — all because there might be damaged feelings.The United States is the reigning power of international women’s soccer. Its dominance began with victory at the initial World Cup in 1991 and the initial competition at the 1996 Olympic Games and has continued through this decade with three World Cups finals.They are what Brazil was to the men’s game during Pele’s reign.Pele, though, barely has had a negative word said about him in his six decades as a public figure, not even about his acting in “Victory.” Is the difference now that criticism is amplified? Or is it that the standard is different for female players?The headline in Wednesday’s Daily Mail declared United States star Alex Morgan, following her goal against England in the FIFA Women’s World Cup semifinals, had sparked a “storm in a teacup with ‘distasteful’ celebration.”The word “distasteful” appeared in quotes, which meant someone with some station had labeled it as such. Honestly. Morgan scored the game-winning goal, advancing the U.S. women’s national team to their third consecutive World Cup final, and pretended to drink a spot of tea.That’s an issue?It’s the world’s most popular sport, whatever one wishes to call it, so hasn’t anybody watched any soccer/football/futbol/calcio lately? Dudes are practically staging full-length productions of “Pagliacci” after each time they score.MORE: Rapinoe makes profound statement in victory over FranceWe have seen players cupping their ears toward the standings, the universal gesture for “I can’t hear you.” We have seen players put their index fingers to their lips, the gesture for “I just shut you all up.” A player for the Italy national team once pretended to play the violin. In a club game, Roma’s Francesco Totti took a selfie. In Lithuania a few years back, Dzmitry Kowb ran up into the stands after scoring, sat down and applauded his own effort.England veteran Lianne Sanderson, working as an analyst for BeIN Sports, was the person who took umbrage with Morgan’s flying pinkie. “You can celebrate however you want, but that, for me, is a bit distasteful, and I don’t think she needs to do that,” Sanderson said. “She can celebrate however she wants, and I’m a big believer in the Americans and how they celebrate, but for me this was a little bit disrespectful.”When I was sitting in the upper corner end zone in Reims for the United States’ 13-0 victory over Thailand, as I watched 10 second-half goals scored at our end of the field, I cringed at the celebrations the American players performed. Not because I was bothered or thought it was problematic, but because I know how the media world works. I knew the players would be eviscerated for enjoying their victory.That ought to have been a one-day story, though. It has been stunning to see this narrative advanced as the tournament continued.VERTELNEY: Disgraceful? Classless? That’s what reactions to U.S. 13-0 win has been England coach Phil Neville could be forgiven for carping in advance of the semis about two anonymous U.S. soccer officials “invading” the Lionesses’ hotel housing; a coach does what he can to legally gain an edge. When the game was over and England still was griping about disrespect, it became more than obvious the team that is being disrespected is the reigning champion.It wasn’t an American who flopped twice, trying unsuccessfully to draw penalties and later acted as though a bump in the calf had caused a catastrophic injury. That was England striker Ellen White, whose histrionics led to a video review that showed enough of a foul to call a penalty (that time). It wasn’t an American who committed two egregious fouls that warranted yellow cards and thus was sent off for the resultant red card. That was England defender Millie Bright. And it wasn’t a U.S. coach complaining afterward that the game referee had “lost control.” That was Neville.It wasn’t clear from the audio what Horan had shouted as she passed through the tunnel on the way to another celebration that apparently was private enough to offend no one. Let’s just hope it wasn’t anything about Brexit, because that would have been mean. It was Lindsey Horan’s perfectly placed pass that United States teammate Alex Morgan transformed — using her head, literally — into the game-winning goal that advanced the U.S. to the final of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.Perhaps it was that play on her mind, or teammate Alyssa Naeher’s stunning penalty save, or just the breadth of joy at achieving a lifelong dream, when Horan had the audacity to shout as she traveled from the field to the locker room following the semifinal victory.last_img read more

first_imgYesterday, BiH football players had a training before today’s match with Latvia, and after the training Sušić said that he can count on all players and he released the list of player who’ll play in today’s match.“Begović is a goalkeeper,  Mujdža , Spahić, Zukanović, Lulić, Medunjanin, Rahimić, Pjanić, Salihović, Ibisević and Džeko will start the match. There were some dilemmas, whether to put Zahirović  or Rahimić, but we need more experienced players. Also, there was a dilemma between Medunjanin and Stevanović, and I chose Medunjanin who’ll strengthen the middle field, and Stevanović will be called if needed’Sušić is convinced that players will give their best and he’s convinced in victory.‘I respect our opponent, but we came here to win, we have no other choice. We also need to expect a hard match, but they are not as motivated as we are. For us, this is a game of a lifetime, and we hope to play just like in Zenica’, said Sušić.(nfsbih)last_img read more

first_imgJurgen Klopp issued a warning to the rest of the Premier League that Liverpool “will not stop” despite ending the club’s long wait to be crowned champions again.The Reds lifted the trophy on Wednesday after a 5-3 win over Chelsea in their final home game of an unforgettable season, though no fans were present inside Anfield. “That’s how life is — you make the best of what you can get,” the former Borussia Dortmund boss said. “Our families are allowed to be there, which is incredible”Everything would be better with fans, but we’ve known for months that would not be possible. A few months ago, I wasn’t even sure it was going to be possible to even play football.  “I couldn’t be happier, to be honest. It would be perfect if the stadium was full, I know, but we cannot change it. What we try to do to make clear for the people is that we do it for them.” However, the players and staff were able to have their families in attendance to enjoy the occasion, with the ceremony taking place on a stage built on the famous Kop end.MORE: Klopp says Reds forwards’ production has been a surpriseLiverpool had never previously won the title in the Premier League era, their last triumph coming 30 years ago under Kenny Dalglish, who was involved in the presentation.”We will not stop. We will not stop. We have challenges, internal challenges. We can improve, obviously,” Klopp told Sky Sports.”We have the players. Naby [Keita] played pretty much only the last part of the season. We pretty much have the chance to take another step. But we have to, because the others will not sleep.  “[There are] no guarantees for anything, other than we will try.”Klopp steered Liverpool to Champions League glory last season, while they have also lifted the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup this term.While not usually one for nostalgia, the German coach admitted he will have a photo with all four trophies so he can forever remember the achievement.”It’s unbelievable, to be honest. We won four trophies — big ones — and I couldn’t be more proud,” he said.”Normally I’m a person who doesn’t need pictures with something. As long as I can remember it, it’s worth it. But I will have a picture with all four trophies because it doesn’t happen often.”The coronavirus pandemic not only delayed Liverpool clinching the league crown but also denied them from receiving the trophy in front of their supporters, though Klopp hopes the absent audience understands the role they have played in the successful campaign.last_img read more

first_imgFacebook71Tweet0Pin0Submitted by City of YelmThe Rhythmic soundwaves of Jazz wasn’t the only excitement to splash down at the Yelm City Park last Friday as water shot out of the Splash Pad for the first time for public use just after 2:00 p.m., just hours before the annual Jazz in the Park Festival. Since then, the park has quickly become the most popular family attraction in the community.“Turning this park into a destination for our local families is one of the greatest achievements that has come out of this administration,” Mayor JW Foster said. “Our team worked tirelessly to get this park open for the summer season and nothing makes us happier than seeing families enjoy this public resource.”Hundreds of Yelm-area kids have already slid down the slides, run through the water rings, and shot the water cannons, while parents land their picnic basket on the green grass or on one of the many new tables throughout the park.The splash pad is open daily 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.The playground and splash pad were funded in part by a $305,019 Community Development Block Grant, a $239,590 State Capital Budget Grant, and $460,750 coming from local funds.After the concept was approved by Council, the City was able to find contributions through other funding sources and save on other capital improvement projects to make the park the best that it can be with the funding available.Local funding sources include the Municipal Building Fund, Street Capital Fund, Water Capital Fund as the water recirculating system is owned and operated by the water utility, and the Sewer Utility Fund due to the backwash tank and filtration system being owned and operated by the sewer utility. All funding for these projects were made from the 2018 and 2019-2020 capital budgets, approved by Yelm City Council.“As the project went along, we saw great opportunities to augment the park,” Foster said. “Our Public Works Director and Project Manager were excellent in finding contributions to the project through other funding sources in our budget, by saving on other projects, and reprioritizing others to make this park an asset now and for future generations “Complete details of the Project Budget Summary are available for review.last_img read more

first_imgThe University of the West Indies (UWI) continued their impressive run in the Red Stripe Premier League with a 1-0 win against ten-man Tivoli Gardens FC at Edward Seaga Stadium yesterday.Girvon Brown netted for UWI in the 82nd minute, three minutes before Tivoli Gardens were reduced to ten players, when Rodico Wellington was shown a red card by referee Kevin Morrison.Tivoli started the game with hard running and good passes but failed to get past goalkeeper Amal Knight, who made some wonderful saves.Knight gave away a penalty in the first half when he fouled Tivoli’s Javanie Mitchell inside the area. The goalkeeper would, however, redeem himself, diving to his right to block Junior Flemmings’ effort from the spot.INCISIVE SKILLUWI picked up the pace, and the introduction of Keammar Daley and Anthony Grant in the second half certainly lifted their play. Both players immediately got involved and were influential with some incisive passing and skill on the ball.In the closing moments, Brown found the winning goal to push his tally to eight goals so far for the season.UWI’s assistant coach, Andrew Peart, praised his team for the win that pushed them onto 30 points in the league.”It was not only the players that came off the bench, but the entire team performed very well today (yesterday),” Peart told The Gleaner.”We made some adjustments from the first time we played Tivoli. They try to kick the ball long from the back, so we put some pressure on them, and it worked,” he reasoned.Although UWI are picking up the points in their first season, Peart says the first aim is to be safe. He predicted that two more wins from 11 games to be played in the preliminary round would make the team stay up.”Well, our first objective is to stay in the league, and mathematically, when we are safe, we can re-adjust our ambition. The semi-finals is a possibility, but we are not looking at that right now. Maybe another two more wins and we are safe for the next season,” Peart added.DROP IN RANKSMeanwhile, Tivoli, who fired coach Christopher Bender following a 1-0 defeat to leaders Portmore United last Thursday, dropped to 11th position on 19 points in the 12-team league.”Well, unfortunately, we lost by a simple goal. We got our chances and did not make any use, and UWI got one chance and won the game. Congratulations to UWI,” manager of Tivoli Brian Rose said.”Right now we are in a very desperate situation, so we have to dust ourselves off and come back,” he said.Rose confirmed that Bender was asked to resign.”When a team is not getting the desired results, the first person you look at is the coach. He was asked to resign,” Rose informed.last_img read more

Mrs. Cecelia Harries Jolo arrived in Monrovia from Zwedru; Grand Gedeh County over the weekend to take delivery of her four-door Chevrolet valued US$15,000. The Airstrip supervisor and business woman, who sells cement and petroleum products in Zwedru city, the provincial capital of Grand Gedeh County, told our reporter that she was ecstatic to have been selected lucky winner of the Ecobank Deposit Mobilization Campaign draw.“I am very happy; she said “that I was selected winner of the giant prize of the EDMC raffle draw.” “I am glad to the extent that I don’t even know how to express my joy,” she said.Accompanied to Monrovia by her family members including her brother and sisters, Mrs. Jolo observed that Ecobank has added a new flavor to the banking industry in Liberia by awarding customers for saving money in their personal accounts.The EDMC required customers to regularly deposit US$100 in their savings accounts in order to qualify them for the draw. But Mrs. Jolo said she was not aware of the EDMC promo.“I didn’t know about this promo,” Madam Jolo said as she beamed with smiles. On Thursday, January 23, Mrs. Jolo was phoned via mobile phone after her account number was luckily chosen by a customer through a raffle draw at the Ecobank Sinkor Branch.Her account number was picked from among over 31,000 other account numbers for other customers who also qualified for the grand prize draw.The raffle draw was supervised by the Liberia National Lotteries, the legal body responsible for all raffle draws in Liberia.Ecobank Managing Director Mr. Kola Adeleke, Monday, handed the keys over to Mrs. Jolo who was smartly dressed in orange skirt, a pair of black heel shoes, a black and white blouse and a pair of black jacket.“I am going to take this car to Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County to ride it around the city center. This car will also take me to job,” she stated.The EDMC grand prize winner, who is also a student of the Grand Gedeh Community College, said she will drive her car to school so that other students can be encouraged to deposit and save their monies with Ecobank Liberia. She told the public about the importance of saving their money with the Bank.“I felt so glad when the Ecobank Managing Director handed the keys over to me and asked me to sit in the car,” Jolo noted.

She thanked Ecobank Management for the promotion and for helping to change her life.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation’s (LWSC) US$40 million Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Project (UWSSP) has resumed after the eradication of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) that paralyzed most development activities in the country last year.The disclosure of resuming the urban water projects of Kakata, Buchanan and Zwedru Cities in Margibi, Grand Bassa and Grand Gedeh counties was made by the project manager of the UWSSP, Gabriel Flaboe, in an interview with the Daily Observer during the weekend in Monrovia.He intimated that the three projects were awarded in May 2014 and work started in June but regrettably rehabilitation work was halted in mid July 2014 due to the Ebola Virus in the country.In April 2015, work resumed on the three water projects and again there was some delays due to tax exemption requirements from the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP).Thanks to the efficient handling of the challenge by the LWSC management the issues have been resolved and work at the three water project sites have begun.Manager Flaboe added that materials and equipment for the three projects are expected in the country within the next two weeks.He further noted that sanitation and hygiene work at the three water facilities are ongoing and engineers at the projects have drilled four new boreholes in Buchanan, two in Zwedru and one in Kakata.Mr. Flaboe also disclosed that there is a plan for the provision of funds by the Africa Water Facility (AWF) to construct some pipe-borne water facilities at the New Georgia and Soul Clinic Communities in Gardnersville and Paynesville to buttress the supply of water to Monrovia.The UWSSP official further revealed that a comprehensive financial proposal is being crafted by professionals in order to determine the most responsive consultants who will design, review and study the proposed water facilities in the two communities.He also explained that after the financial evaluation by the AfDB and if there is no objection to the proposed document, the LWSC will begin to find professional firms to do the feasibility studies for implementation.Mr. Flaboe pointed out that if the LWSC is able within three months to recruit competent and professional firms to do an effective design review, the system will be in the position to tender the work for competitive bidding.“The provision of social services for all Liberians irrespective of background and geographical location is our responsibility,” Manager Flaboe said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgMARKETS: Internet company continues its surge and reaches yet another milestone. By Michael Liedtke THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Google Inc.’s stock price sailed past $600 for the first time Monday, extending a monthlong rally propelled by the lofty expectations surrounding the Internet search leader’s upcoming third-quarter earnings report. The biggest beneficiaries of the stock’s ascension have been Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who began developing their search engine, then called BackRub, in a Stanford University dorm room in 1996. Page and Brin, both 34, rank among the world’s wealthiest people, with fortunes approaching $20 billion each. Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, and top sales executive Omid Kordestani have also accumulated enough stock in the company to become multibillionaires. Hundreds of other Google employees are millionaires. Google’s stock has reigned as one of the hottest commodities on Wall Street because its search engine has turned into a moneymaking machine as advertisers spend more on the Internet to connect with consumers who are increasingly shunning television, radio and traditional print media. Google’s search engine is the hub of the Web’s most lucrative ad network. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Mountain View-based company’s shares traded as high as $610.26 before slipping back to $609.62, a gain of $15.57, or 2.6percent. It marked the sixth time in the past 12 trading sessions that the stock has reached a new high, showing investors are confident Google’s third-quarter profit will be impressive. The results are scheduled to be released Oct. 18. The latest milestone served as yet another reminder of the immense wealth created since Google went public in August 2004. The shares have increased more than sevenfold from their initial public offering price of $85, bringing the nine-year-old company’s market value to $190 billion – eclipsing bigger, more mature businesses such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Coca-Cola Co., Hewlett-Packard Co. and IBM Corp. It took 10 months for Google’s stock to leap from $500 to $600 and more than a year for the journey from $400 to $500. The shares hurdled $300 in June 2005 after passing the $100 and $200 thresholds in 2004. Analysts began predicting Google’s stock would reach $600 at the start of 2006 when the shares were still hovering around $420. Some analysts are already predicting Google’s stock will hit $700 within the next year, but the average target price for the stock is $614.64 among analysts polled by Thomson Financial. last_img read more

Mc Shane won a unanimous points decision against Tyrone fighter Ben Mulligan.Mulligan put on a brave performance but he was outclassed by a determined Mc Shane who controlled the bout from start to finish. Mulligan took big shots from Mc Shane and was rattled during several different stages of the fight – but survived the consistent onslaught from the Donegal man.Mc Shane is now targeting a return to the ring in early January – as he’s keen to continue his march through the rankings.Mc Shane told Donegal Daily, “I trained hard for the Mulligan fight so I was confident, he was strong guy and very durable.“He took a lot of heavy shots that most guys would go down from, but he never gave up he was their to win and I respect that. However, at the same time I knew I was in control, and if I had to go to war then I’d plenty left in the tank.“Overall we’re happy with the result, but we know there is still a lot of work to do.“I’d love to get back in the ring before Christmas, but realistically it will be the New Year before I’m back in action. BOXING: MC SHANE WANTS NEW YEAR FIGHT AFTER SUPERB PERFORMANCE was last modified: November 25th, 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:boxingSportlast_img read more

first_imgFor nine days, Rocky and Jonathan Perkett heard a lone black bear cub wail from its hiding spot in a Coos County, Ore., logging site. They could drop a tree on it or rescue it. They chose the latter, and for two years the bear was like family. But when the authorities got wind of it, there was trouble a-bruin. The father and son named her Windfall and raised it for two years. They shared pizza and soda with the bear and gave her free rein of their home in the woods outside Coos Bay. The bear slept in Jonathan Perkett’s bed, took showers and even had her hair blow-dried, Rocky Perkett said. “We’re not lying about it,” said Rocky Perkett, 54. “We lived with her. We loved her. We treated her like a daughter.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week But that’s illegal in Oregon, and last week police raided their home and took Windfall. The men face possible charges for holding the bear without permits and in an unlicensed facility. “The law says you can’t hold wild animals in any way,” said Wildlife Administrator Ron Anglin of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The Perketts maintain that Windfall never was “held” or locked in a cage. They simply opened their house to her, Rocky Perkett said. She could come and go at will, and even learned to work the doorknobs, he said. “Is there a law against a bear running around in your yard?” Perkett said. The Perketts plan to hire an attorney and hope a glitch in the Oregon State Police’s search warrant will get the case tossed out – and, in the best of cases, get Windfall returned to them. “Everything they done here was unlegal,” Rocky Perkett said. “Since it’s all unlegal, I hope they will bring her back.” No citations have been issued but holding a bear without a permit is punishable by up to a year in jail and a $6,350 fine. Meanwhile, the bear has been shipped to a California Department of Fish and Game holding facility, where it will remain until the case is concluded. The bear’s likely future is at a zoo or a permanent holding facility, Anglin said. The bear likes people too much to be released into the wild, he said. Perkett acknowledged there’s little chance of getting Windfall back. But he hopes good intentions and lack of understanding of the law will discourage prosecution. “We’re hicks. We’re mountain men,” Perkett said. “We took her because she was dying and we loved her. The only thing we did wrong was love one another.” Wildlife biologist Stuart Love, who helped tranquilize and seize the bear, said he doesn’t doubt it. He said people’s attachment to wild animals makes such seizures “the worst part of my job.” “You could see the hurt in those guys’ eyes when we took it,” Love said. “But there’s no way we could leave that bear with them. It could end up killing someone.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

He said he had spoken to some of the victims who said they were relieved the raiders had been caught.“I spoke to one family who woke up and went downstairs to find their house ransacked. They were in shock and felt violated by the break in but they also were relieved that they didn’t waken and confront the burglars.“They rang the Gardai and they were there in minutes.“The Buncrana Gardai deserve high praise today as they were on the scene very quickly and made two arrests in the space of a few hours. “People will sleep better at night knowing the Gardai are on top of things,” he said. PEOPLE WILL SLEEP BETTER TONIGHT FOLLOWING BUNCRANA ARRESTS SAYS COUNCILLOR was last modified: February 15th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranaburglariesCllr Ciaran McLaughlinlast_img read more

first_imgA DONEGAL man who fought a legal battle over a drugs supplier charge and lost has been fined €1,000 for various offences.Peter Wilson, from Windmill View in Letterkenny, had contested a charge of possession drugs with intent to supply after gardai found €432 worth of cocaine in his car when he was stopped.Wilson was also facing motoring offences. Inspector Michael Harrison told Letterkenny District Court that Wilson was stopped by gardai in April 2013.A subsequent search of his car uncovered the cocaine – and a small amount of cannabis worth around €4 was found at this homeDefence solicitor Kevin McElhinney reminded Judge Paul Kelly that Wilson had contested the more serious charge of possession with intent to supply at an earlier hearing but had been found guilty.“He was on his way to a card game and he was unfortunate that he was the one tasked with collecting the cocaine to take it to the card game,” said Mr McElhinney who said his client was not a dealer.Inspector Harrison also told the court about motoring offences on Feb 24, 2013 involving Wilson and his silver Mercedes car.Garda Derek Connaughton had gone to check the vehicle when it was parked at the side of the road at Brownknowe, Ramelton.As the garda was chatting to Wilson, the motorist said “F*** this” and then sped off, said the inspector.“Garda Connaughton had to jump out of the way,” the inspector added.The Mercedes sped off in the direction of Rathmullan.Mr McElhinney said Wilson had driven off because had panicked because his car wasn’t insured.He said Wilson was now working as a carpenter in the UK. He had complied with all the directions of the probation service on the cocaine and driving matters and had successfully attended the pro-social driving habits course.Judge Kelly fined Wilson a total of €1,000 on the cocaine and dangerous driving charges.“He is very much obliged for the opportunity,” said Mr McElhinney.MAN CAUGHT WITH €400 WORTH OF COCAINE WAS ‘TAKING IT TO A CARD GAME’ was last modified: September 4th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:arrestchargecocaineconvictiondealerletterkennyPeter Wilsonlast_img read more

first_imgOrigin of the Sino-Tibetan language family about 5,900 years ago? Yeah, that’s about right, within error.If you are an evolutionist, with no regard for Old Testament chronologies, how old would you estimate languages are? According to the evolutionary timeline, Homo erectus, Neanderthal Man, Denisovans and other “archaic humans” were migrating around Africa, Europe and Asia for many hundreds of thousands of years. Even modern humans looked pretty much like us as far back as 350,000 years ago, according to a recent find in Morocco (11 July 2018). Whether any of these people groups had language is impossible to know without written records, but can be inferred. They certainly had art earlier than 40,000 years ago, indicating cognitive sophistication at least by then. And when it comes to brain size, there was no shortage of capacity there for complex communication. Hunting, tool making and controlled use of fire go even further back in the evolutionary scenario.It would be unreasonable to expect humans with teamwork and social cohesion at these levels not having language. And if they did communicate, the utterances were most likely more sophisticated than grunts. The accoutrements of language—grammar, syntax, and semantics—would become necessary quickly, along with language conventions known and taught to all the members of the group. Let’s speculate that, in this evolutionary view of human history language probably originated 300,000 years ago, if not earlier.How about less than 10,000 years ago? How about less than that? If that were true, the dates would look nearly Biblical.A new study by 4 Asian linguists, published in Nature, concludes a shockingly young date. Old estimates put the particular language family called “Sino-Tibetan” (mother tongue of Tibetan, Chinese and other Asian languages) at 9,000 years or older. In the same issue of Nature, Randy J. LaPolla writes a “News & Views” piece about “The origin and spread of the Sino-Tibetan language family.”A robust computational approach with added finesse provides evidence to support the view that the Sino-Tibetan languages arose in northern China and began to split into branches about 5,900 years ago.Apparently the new study undermines the previous 9,000 year estimate, providing strong support for the younger date.The location and timing of the emergence of the Sino-Tibetan language family has long been debated. This family has around 1.5 billion speakers worldwide, the second largest number of speakers globally after those who speak languages in the Indo-European family. One school of thought is that the ancestral language (Proto-Sino-Tibetan) from which all the Sino-Tibetan languages evolved originated in northern China around 4,000–6,000 years ago. An alternative view is that it arose 9,000 years ago in southwest China or northeast India.Writing in Nature, Zhang et al. report a study that might settle this debate. The authors gathered evidence about the Sino-Tibetan language family and its speakers from disciplines including genetics, computational biology, linguistics, archaeology and anthropology, and also compiled information about the development of agriculture and its possible effects on human migrations in the region. They then used a method of probability testing to assess the different language family trees that could be made on the basis of this evidence.On the basis of their “robust” interdisciplinary approach, “Their analysis indicates that, consistent with one current model, the ancestral form of the language originated approximately 5,900 years ago in northern China, in the basin of the Yellow River.”Biblical creationists might have squirmed at the 9,000 year date, finding it hard to stretch the chronologies of Genesis that far back. According to Answers in Genesis, one of the best-known and staunch Biblical creation organizations, the division of languages at the Tower of Babel occurred in 2242 BC. Adding the current year would make that 4,261 years ago. That’s off by over 1,600 years from the date of the new study, but one must recognize the sources of error in Zhang et al‘s approach. Their date embeds numerous unproveable assumptions:According to prior settings of calibrations in previous work, we selected two kinds of distributions: the normal distribution for situations that involve a probable date with an evenly distributed estimated-error factor, and the uniform distribution for assessing the potential ranges of divergence times. Our goal was to obtain an inferred phylogeny of the Sino-Tibetan languages. Therefore, we did not set any monophyletic constraints as priors, even if they were well-attested language branches.The researchers had no desire or interest in confirming a Biblical date, so they assumed evolutionary dates and processes. Even so, the results did not look evolutionary:Although we adopt a family-tree model to demonstrate the lineages among the Sino-Tibetan languages, we do not claim that the cultural history of Sino-Tibetan speakers is indeed tree-like. Population migrations and interactions among speakers of Sino-Tibetan languages were complex and occurred over a long period of time. As a consequence, substantial language contact among the Sino-Tibetan languages could have occurred at an early stage of the diversification of these languages, and could continue into the present. These contacts have previously been known to have occurred among the Sino-Tibetan languages, as well as with the surrounding Austronesian, Tai–Kadai and Hmong–Mien languages (Supplementary Information, sections 2.5, 2.6). Unfortunately, we cannot yet provide concrete data for identifying these influences, and we cannot, therefore, reconstruct the explicit genetic relationships between the Sino-Tibetan languages and other language families. Many Sino-Tibetan languages remain poorly described, which makes it challenging to perform definite comparisons in historical linguistics. Thus, the study of the evolution of the Sino-Tibetan languages is at an early stage and requires additional interdisciplinary data. To explicitly demonstrate the evolution of the Sino-Tibetan languages, we need comprehensive archaeological surveys and sufficient evidence from studies of ancient DNA.Suffice it to say that the error bars are large, and one cannot stuff human beings’ mental activities into simplistic evolutionary trees. Through force of will, humans can decide on quick changes to their languages, while other groups can remain complacent with traditional words and meanings for long periods. Human interactions are complex.That being said, the authors of the study came up with a surprisingly recent date. Considering errors, their date for the “origin and spread” of this large language family could fit the Biblical time frame of the days of migration following the Tower of Babel. Conversely, their date seems far, far too recent to fit into an evolutionary timeline of hundreds of thousands of years.Update 5/06/19: A separate paper by Sagart et al in PNAS uses additional methods to calculate the appearance of the Sino-Tibetan language at 7,200 years B.P. (before present). That is still significantly earlier than previous estimates.The Biblical picture is that after the Flood, all the descendants of Noah’s sons stayed close together, disobeying God’s command to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. They tried to make a name for themselves, not to glorify their Creator, by building a city and a tower (probably a religious center for idolatry).And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the Lord dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth. And from there the Lord dispersed them over the face of all the earth. (Genesis 11:6-9)Notice that God opposed to one-world government. Global governance would be very bad for fallen mankind, because it would give Satan a central point of control over everyone. God, therefore, forced man apart into nation-states by confusing their languages. This means that language families are not evolutionary, but created. Names like “Proto-Indo-European” and “Proto-Sino-Tibetan” do not imply these languages were primitive. Creationists would expect they were complex from the start, and have devolved since. Paul elaborates on the plan of God for nation-states when speaking on Mars Hill to the Athenians:And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. (Acts 17:26-27)We find unity and diversity in this passage: all people are members of “one man” (KJV, “one blood”), a single human race from Adam and Eve, responsible to God equally at the judgment, and yet nations with boundaries that could act as checks and balances against each other’s evil intentions. With this arrangement, individuals could “seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him” easier than if everyone was indoctrinated by a central authority. Even if no one does seek after God (Romans 3:9-18), God can reach out to them through creation, conscience and revelation before they become mind-numbed robots of a central state. Individuals who have options to move out of a nation-state have better hope of responding to God.Another support for the Biblical timeline is found in Genesis 10, the Table of Nations. This remarkable chapter fits what we know about the history of people groups. The Bible says they migrated from the Tower of Babel after God confused their languages. Many of the names listed match those from independent records of nations’ historical accounts. Unlike the absurd stories from some national myths, this account has the ring of truth, with its details and matter-of-fact writing.Importantly, this is all recent! Unlike evolutionary moyboy accounts that stre-t-t-t-ch human history into hundreds of thousands of years (because Charlie needs the time), the facts of history show all this occurring recently, in just a few thousands of years. Humans are restless. They can cover lots of ground in just years or decades or centuries. Think of all the changes in American history in just 250 years. Intelligent minds (not evolutionary happenstances) can bring rapid change. Long ages actually hinder the explanation of history. Who needs long ages besides Charlie? The new study on the origin of Sino-Tibetan languages fits what the Bible says. (Visited 576 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_imgWenger’s mind gamesJose Mourinho might be lauded as the master at mind games but it was Wenger who played the ultimate trick on the opening weekend. With Arsenal dominating pre season headlines with talks of “The Title” Wenger put out a team which looked completely unprepared for a fight. Surprise! In their 0-2 home loss to West Ham United, Arsenal were embarrassed so much so that they asked an unfit Alexis Sanchez to suit up. The problem wasn’t the lack of Karim Benzema, for he can’t help in defending free headers, but in the team looking unprepared and devoid of ideas.The coaching staff has to take responsibility for what was a horror debut for Petr Cech, the return of The-Mesut-Ozil-Is-Overratted narrative and no Ox coming out party.Arsenal can be title contenders, but the title isn’t waiting to be won, it needs fighting for and that requires top level contribution from the whole club going forward. Chelsea Thibaut Courtois red card was legit. He was the last guy who stopped a goal scoring opportunity with no clear covering defender.Mad props to the assistant referee who got the decision spot on. Only thing everyone in the world wanted was what Mourinho thought about it:Classic.About the game, the Swans continue their underrated goodness. Gary Monk out-thought Mourinho, who’s team looked uncharacteristically  shaky through the middle as Fabregas and Matic struggled to influence the middle in their normal way.Diego Costa was…well he fought everything, everyone is against him, everyone fouls him so yeah he was Diego Costa minus the goals.advertisementChelsea showed they are work in progress and need that extra bit of attacking nous this year, specifically if Fabregas isn’t on song. They’ll work through the kinks and be solid, but enough to fend off a Manchester City resurgence? I’m not sure.LVG wins pre-season It is well known that Louis Van Gaal is a detail oriented cyborg who loves his preparation. In their forgetful opening game against Tottenham, United looked the most season ready of all top 4 teams, winning 1-0 at home.Matteo Darmian showed why he was their most important signing with a ball busting display at right/wing/I-Shall-Eat-Your-Soul back. Morgan Schneiderlin acquitted himself well, while Bastian Schweinsteiger showed his age in an anonymous 25 minute cameo from the bench.The star was Memphis though, who already looks disgruntled and shoots from everywhere. I love him. He expects Ronaldo treatment while having Ashley Young game (Who was amazing in this game) at the age of 21.Coutinho took everyone to churchTo save the best for the last, Philippe Coutinho showed us the light yesterday, settling a drab game at Stoke for Liverpool with a blinder from distance in the 86th minute.    Rodgers Job is safe for now, Liverpool looked decent and Coutinho’s goal was a reminder of why football is missed so much. The revving of the engine is over, The Premier League is back.last_img read more

The victory meant the Mumbai side jumped to the fourth place in the points table to consolidate their chances of making to the play-off stages.The match was a closely-fought affair with two of the best defences in the league going head to head.But Abhishek’s raiding backed up by some incredible defence by Sandeep Narwal and Surinder Singh opened up a lead for U Mumba as they inflicted an all-out on Gujarat to move to a five points lead with eight minutes still left for half time.Rohit Gulia found chinks in the U Mumbai armour after the all-out and his eight-point half helped the Gujarat team claw their way back with an all-out with under two minutes to play. The first half ended with both the sides locked at 16-16.The second half continued to be the same with both defences trading blows.Unfortunately for Gujarat, Sunil Kumar picked up an injury which disrupted the team’s structure.With Arjun Deshwal out for U Mumba with an injury, the raiding responsibilities for the Mumbai side were solely on the shoulders of Abhishek.The raider produced a two-point raid in the 13th minute after which the Mumbai defence successfully tackled Gujarat’s Sachin to give U Mumbai a three-point lead after a long time.The raider picked his game up and helped U Mumba secure an all-out with less than three minutes left in the match to move to a six-point lead.The defence held firm in the final minutes to clinch an important victory for the Mumbai side.

The events will be formally unveiled during a ceremony to be announced. Labour Day is organised by the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport in collaboration with several Ministries, Departments and Agencies, and community groups.The administrations of the Municipal Corporations are also instrumental in the planning and execution of activities at the community level.

first_imgThis summer, the Nova Scotia Museum’s 27 sites across the province will provide families with experiences that are entertaining and educational. “Museums offer excellent ways to spend quality family time together,” said Leonard Preyra, Minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage. “I encourage everyone to visit our museums in the summertime to take advantage of special programs, exhibits and learning experiences.” At the Museum of Natural History in Halifax, visitors will be treated to Out of This World: Extraordinary Costumes from Film and Television. Featuring more than 40 costumes and objects from science fiction films and TV programs, this exciting exhibition shows visitors how costume design uses colour, style, scale, materials, historical traditions, nature and cultural cues to help actors and audiences engage with the characters being portrayed. Also in Halifax, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic hosts Cable Ships: Connecting Halifax to Titanic and the World. Researched and developed by museum staff, the exhibit explores the history of cable ships, from their contribution to establishing global communications, to the role of Halifax-based ships during the recovery operations after the sinking of RMS Titanic. At Ross Farm Museum in New Ross, visitors can explore 60 acres of rolling farmland to discover what life was like over 100 years ago. From historic Rose Bank Cottage, where the Ross family lived, to daily activities such as wool spinning, candle making and ox shoeing, the museum gives visitors the chance to experience yesterday’s traditional farming methods, while learning sustainable ways of living for today. In Barrington, visitors can step inside the preserved Barrington Woolen Mill to learn how machinery and water power helped revolutionize life in rural Nova Scotia. Established in 1882, the mill industrialized the process of turning raw fleece into yarn and cloth, forever changing the way local fishing and farming families produced warm, wool clothing. At the Museum of Industry in Stellarton, visitors of all ages can push, pull, lift, drop and laugh as they enjoy exhibits and interactive displays that highlight how technology, and people, worked throughout this province’s history. Featuring 30,000 artifacts, the Museum of Industry is the best place to find out what “Made in Nova Scotia” really means. Visitors eager to experience Nova Scotia’s Gaelic culture, heritage and hospitality need look no further than the Highland Village Museum. Located in scenic Iona, Victoria Co., the village is North America’s only living history museum for Gaelic language and culture. The 43-acre site features historic buildings, rare farm animals, lively interpreters and a breathtaking view of the Bras d’Or lake, now a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. At Uniacke Estate Museum Park in Mount Uniacke, visitors can explore one of Nova Scotia’s grandest homes. Built in 1816 by prosperous Irish politician Richard John Uniacke, this country mansion features treasured family belongings such as fine furniture and exquisite portraits. Outside the picturesque estate, there are several walking trails, ranging from easy to challenging, that offer recreational opportunities for people of all ages. In Lower West Pubnico, visitors to Le Village Historique Acadien de la Nouvelle-Écosse will be able to enjoy the site’s new nature trail, which was opened on June 5. Stretching along the shoreline of the village’s 17-acre property, the trail will feature strategically placed interpretive panels that highlight the area’s natural beauty and historical significance.

first_img “It’s an exciting time to be a part of the efforts the province is making to improve accessibility,” said Clary Stubbert, member of the disabled community and student of the NSCC Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification program. “The training I’m receiving from the Rick Hansen program will allow me to assess buildings in order to remove some of the barriers faced by people with disabilities.” Government will continue to consult with persons with disabilities and those impacted on the development of standards and the implementation of actions outlined in the strategy and government plan. “We are looking forward to working with standard development committees and continuing our consultation with persons with disabilities and others as we develop recommendations for the first standards,” said Doug Foster, chair of the Accessibility Advisory Board. “The success of the Accessibility Act can only be achieved when the voices of those directly impacted are heard.” The Accessibility Act was passed in 2017, setting a goal of an accessible Nova Scotia by 2030. It outlines how we will improve accessibility in our province to ensure that every Nova Scotian can participate in our society. Education, buildings, and shared spaces in Nova Scotia will soon be guided by accessibility standards. Minister responsible for the Accessibility Act, Mark Furey was joined by the Accessibility Advisory Board and stakeholders today, Sept. 21, for the release of the province’s implementation strategy for achieving accessibility. Access by Design 2030 identifies priorities to achieve the goals set out in the Accessibility Act. “I am proud of the collaboration that led to the Accessibility Act being passed last year. This historic piece of legislation will make a real difference in the lives of people with disabilities in Nova Scotia,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. Beginning in 2018 committees will be established to develop accessibility standards for education and the built environment, which includes buildings, streets, sidewalks, and shared spaces. These standards are expected to be rolled out starting in 2022 and will be implemented in the years following. The strategy also identifies actions to improve public awareness, build collaboration and increase compliance with existing regulations. “Access by Design 2030 outlines how government, businesses, communities, and individuals will work together to create a province that is inclusive and accessible to all,” said Mr. Furey. “The priorities outlined in the strategy and the continued input we receive from Nova Scotians will guide our work to make this province more equitable and inclusive.” The first Government of Nova Scotia Accessibility Plan (2018-2021) was also released today. The plan outlines actions for improving access to the provincial public service and to government information, infrastructure, programs, and services for persons with disabilities. “As an employer, and as Nova Scotia’s largest program and service provider, it is important we lead by example,” said Premier McNeil. “Government’s plan sets out concrete actions that will be taken over the next three years to ensure that accessibility is considered in the development and delivery of our policies, programs and services, and in our workplace.” Both the strategy and the plan were developed with input from Nova Scotians, including persons with disabilities and their families, those who provide services to persons with disabilities, municipalities, and representatives from the non-profit, education, health, and business sectors, and in collaboration with staff who work directly on the development and delivery of government programs and services. A summary of the consultation findings, Access by Design 2030, and the Government of Nova Scotia Accessibility Plan are available at read more

first_imgDevelopments in West Bengal in the past week have reverberated across the nation as the assault on one of the junior doctors at NRS Hospital received widespread criticism. Protests across Bengal with the support received from across the country was a sigil of solidarity even as this very solidarity rendered thousands of patients without medical facilities. Doctors refused to work in Delhi, UP, Bihar, Odisha, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Karnataka and other parts of the country to display their support towards the demands of NRS doctors. AIIMS Delhi went a step ahead and gave the West Bengal government an ultimatum of 48 hours with a delegation of Indian Medical Council visiting the Union Health Minister over the concerned issue. The pertinent issue of lack of security and police personnel in government hospitals across the nation has been a corner of concern. Like government banks, railway stations, etc., even the government hospitals must have appropriate security and police presence to avoid any mishap. The incident which took place at NRS Hospital was indeed an unfortunate one but more than that it was a serious security lapse. Overreacting patients cannot be ruled out given the severity of issues hospitals deal with and the state of mind any particular individual might be in. Assaulting anyone is against law and there are always those who break laws. Hence, the requirement of adequate safeguards to ensure safety, and that too at someone’s workplace, is paramount. Rightly so then, the demand put forth by doctors of NRS hospital was justified as it echoed across the nation with supporters decrying the incident and demanding action. Of course, the issue was red-hot and at a vulnerable point to be politically exploited and further leading to more protests. Already, a pool of patients had to bear the brunt of doctors’ absence. In short, the state was getting severely affected and the issue would have compounded and became a problem with ramifications which would not be pleasant. Also Read – A compounding difficultyIn this chaos, West Bengal’s chief minister took steps which made NRS hospital, doctors across the state and nation as well as people of Bengal reinstate their faith in the system, especially Mamata above all. The consequence of any agitation in a democracy is always going to be reformist in nature. The seven-day standoff between doctors and state government over lack of security at the workplace came to an end thanks to the truce achieved by the Mamata administration and a delegation of junior doctors. The state secretariat witnessed a 100-minute meeting where Mamata managed to put a smile on faces of protesting junior doctors who, by their absence from the workplace, had brought health services across the state to a standstill; their protest was emulated by others across the nation bringing health services to a halt at many places including the private hospitals shutting their OPDs. The protests staged by doctors transformed into a round of applause as Mamata accepted all their demands and appealed to them to end their strike, calling them “good boys”. The doctors, prior to their meeting, had put forward a demand to live-stream the meeting on news channels instead of a closed-door meeting, setting a precedent that was hailed by all, and would result in increased transparency – something governments have always eluded in some way or another. Closed-door meetings have been conventionally followed to resolve issues, even if they involve the common people. In the garb of confidentiality, almost everything regarding the government is discreetly discussed without letting the layman witness any of it. The essence of democracy is dampened but decisions of authority prevail nevertheless. However, with a one-of-its-kind meeting, the Mamata administration has not only satisfied doctors but the entire state. The incident takes us back to when DD Lok Sabha aired proceedings of the lower house on national TV. Democracy was enriched with public viewership as the elected representatives discussed matters of national interest. The coverage showed Mamata patiently listening to all demands raised by the delegation of junior doctors, jotting down points while asking health and police officials in the room to act on issues as entire West Bengal and the country watched. Governance of this sort really places the administration on a different note. When a government is able to fearlessly pursue remedies and solutions to fix cracks in the system, which is their duty as representatives of people, with a public eye constantly watching, democracy is strengthened. In the context of doctor’s agitation, Mamata pioneered the grievance redressal as the strike ended and doctors returned to their daily work. In fact, the positive note of the meeting reflected in their actions as they went back to NRS Hospital cheering and smiling and apologised to patients and their families with folded hands. If governments – who are fond of setting up committees to look into issues and provide redressal – practice what the West Bengal government did in this case, chances of public redressal increase several folds. Even the quality of remedy is assured since actions of government are now accountable in the eyes of masses due to the live-streamed meeting. In essence, transparency is increased and in a democracy, that will be always desirable.last_img read more

first_img“Review and approval processes specific to Fort St. John are now underway,” she added.Shopland said that this week, the City received approval for several water main projects: on 111th Ave. north of C.M. Finch School, 113th Ave. at 103rd St., and 77th Ave. at 90th St.He added that the only project awaiting approval from the health authority is the Local Area Service extension to the Tahltan Road, though he said that project had only recently been approved by Council. Northern Health spokesperson Andrew Palmer said that the engineer position, which is based in Prince George, has been open since the spring and will remain open until filled by a qualified applicant.She said that recruitment for the engineer position is ongoing, though all health authorities in B.C. consider the position “difficult to fill” since it is a professional engineer position.Palmer explained that Northern Health has been collaborating with other professional engineering services and other health authorities, using their engineers to help fill the gap and get projects approved.Despite this, approvals since the departure of the engineer have slowed. Shopland said that the City received approval for only one project – the water and sewer replacement along 92a St. – in the spring.In a post on his Facebook page last week, councillor Byron Stewart stated that City Council stressed to Northern Health that the current outsourcing meant that the limited time devoted to the City’s files created a serious backlog in construction projects in town.Palmer said that due to the backlog in permits, Northern Health has resorted to employing external contractors and prioritizing outstanding permits in order to get permits reviewed as quickly as possible. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Northern Health says that it is working to ease the backlog of pending water main construction permits from the City of Fort St. John that grew after the health authority’s engineer left earlier this year.Fort St. John’s General Manager of Integrated Services, Victor Shopland, explained that any time the City installs or replaces a water main, it must apply for a permit with Northern Health.The application is reviewed by the health authority’s engineer, who looks at such things as the main’s separation from sanitary or storm sewers, and ensures that the correct processes are laid out in the construction plans.last_img read more

In a statement released by his spokesman late Friday, Mr. Annan urged both sides to resume in earnest their negotiations, which are being organized under the auspices of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD). The two parties were also called on to build on the progress made in July towards a comprehensive settlement of the conflict “that has brought untold misery to the people of the Sudan and devastation to the country.”The Secretary-General commended the “tireless efforts” of the Kenyan Government in leading the peace initiative, and pledged to keep in touch with the parties and the leaders of the IGAD countries. Mr. Annan’s Special Adviser, Mohamed Sahnoun, will represent the Secretary-General at Machakos. “The Secretary-General reiterates the support of the United Nations to the IGAD effort for the Sudan and stands ready to assist in the implementation of a peace agreement,” the spokesman said. read more

The Senate elections were due to take place in January 2012 at the latest – but some 13 months later, “the political elite are still trying to come to a consensus on the basis for organizing these elections,” said Nigel Fisher, proving that this political stand-off is a clear sign that Haiti is still not “open for business.”Briefing reporters after returning from his recent visit to New York, Mr. Fisher, the Acting Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), added that the elections must be “credible, fair and inclusive.”While in New York, the envoy met with members of the Security Council and the so-called ‘Friends of Haiti’, who shared their concerns and frustrations.The predominant concern was of an impasse, he said. Progress had been much slower than was expected back in 2012. “Investments have not reached the levels that were anticipated. GNP [gross national product] grew by approximately 2.5 per cent in 2012, compared to the 8 per cent foreseen.” In addition to the gloomy economic scenario, there were also doubts being raised regarding the independence of the judiciary. But if there is one issue that dominates the discourse and highlights the disappointment of Haiti’s friends, it is the impasse in the organization of the elections, he stated.Mr. Fisher said he plans to confer with Haiti’s leaders to come up with some tangible benchmarks – such as a date for elections by the end of 2013, a Transitional College for a permanent Electoral Council, and a political agreement to agree on steps to move towards elections.The Security Council and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon have also entrusted him with elaborating, along with the Government, a roadmap for the coming years, which will clearly define the priorities for MINUSTAH to promote stability and security, and strengthen the rule of law, respect for human rights and good governance. “We need to constantly ask ourselves this question: ‘How are our efforts going to improve their lives in a tangible way?’” said the envoy.“I understand and support fully the desire of Haitians to be in charge of their own country’s affairs. And the role of the UN and other partners is to accompany them on this road. After all, what is sovereignty if it doesn’t include all Haitians?” stressed Mr. Fisher. read more

first_img Sleek new MIT solar car heads to the races E-Quickie New wireless charging technologies are appearing regularly these days, such as a wireless charging mat for charging electric cars while they are parked (see the PhysOrg article), but the new car takes its energy wirelessly from the road.Mechanical engineering and mechatronics students from the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HsKA) built the experimental car to test the practicality of the wireless technology. The car is propelled by an electrical hub drive, with energy drawn from conducting tracks on the ground via electrical induction. The receivers are fitted to the underside of the car, and there are small onboard batteries, which serve as a buffer for times when the car leaves the electrical conductor tracks.The conducting track was supplied by the company SEW-Eurodrive, based in Bruchsal. The components of the car were designed and built by the 14 students using carbon fiber for the vehicle body and high-tech materials for the chassis and braking and steering systems. The design was fully tested and optimized by computer in a “virtual wind channel” before the car was actually built.

The car resembles a reclining bicycle with the driver inside a capsule. It weighs only 60 kg, but the team hopes to reduce the weight to 40 kg in future. Head of the project, Professor Jürgen Walter, of the Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics faculty at the university, said the team were aiming for a driver:vehicle weight ratio of 2:1, while for most vehicles the ratio is between 1:10 and 1:15.The lightweight design means the car can reach 50 km/h, even with its 2 kW motor. The car has successfully completed 40 laps on a 222-meter-long conductor track at the university, and the team plans to continue using the track to optimize the E-Quickie. They are also planning test drives from the university to the nearby castle and another university campus in the town.Professor Walter said the principle used by the car is not really new, but it could be used much more widely than it is at present. Industry could operate internal transport vehicles in this way for example, he said, but the students also wanted to demonstrate that wireless transfer of energy is also suitable for mass transit applications.

first_imgAaron Rodgers ripping young receivers shows real leadershipAaron Rodgers made headlines yesterday when he publicly ripped some of his young wide receivers for not practicing up to his standards. Colin has criticized Rodgers for being passive aggressive in the past, but he thinks his direct, aggressive approach shows he’s grown as a leader. He’d like to see more soundbites like this from Andrew Luck, instead of constantly taking the blame for everything when his teammates aren’t doing their part. Bad look for Baker on ‘Hard Knocks’The new season of HBO’s long-running NFL docuseries Hard Knocks debuted last night, and this year they’ve descended on Browns camp. One scene from the show featured a mic’d up conversation with #1 overall pick Baker Mayfield and Hue Jackson where Jackson questioned why Mayfield was showing up to the facility after veteran Tyrod Taylor, to which Mayfield didn’t have a great answer. Colin thought it wasn’t a great look for Baker, who looked like he wasn’t as all in as a franchise QB needs to be. Even if there is a good explanation, the optics are bad.Also:– Colin’s College Football Final Four– Colin’s All-Time NBA Starting 5Guests:Nick Wright – Host of FS1’s First Thing’s First joins the show to talk Hard Knocks, and if Hue Jackson has any chance to survive the season.DeAngelo Hall – Former Pro Bowl Cornerback is in-studio talking Browns Hard Knocks, and why he thinks OBJ is better than DeAndre Hopkins.Chad Pennington – Former Jets and Dolphins QB on playing with Randy Moss in college, and why he would sit Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold to start the season.Joel Klatt – FS1 College Football Analyst is in-studio on the Bama QB battle; why Colin is blowing Baker Mayfield’s Hard Knocks appearance out of proportion.last_img read more

first_imgThe Iris dataset is the simplest, yet the most famous data analysis task in the ML space. In this article, you will build a solution for data analysis & classification task from an Iris dataset using Scala. This article is an excerpt taken from Modern Scala Projects written by Ilango Gurusamy. The following diagrams together help in understanding the different components of this project. That said, this pipeline involves training (fitting), transformation, and validation operations. More than one model is trained and the best model (or mapping function) is selected to give us an accurate approximation predicting the species of an Iris flower (based on measurements of those flowers): Project block diagram A breakdown of the project block diagram is as follows: Spark, which represents the Spark cluster and its ecosystem Training dataset Model Dataset attributes or feature measurements An inference process, that produces a prediction column The following diagram represents a more detailed description of the different phases in terms of the functions performed in each phase. Later we will come to visualize pipeline in terms of its constituent stages. For now, the diagram depicts four stages, starting with a data pre-processing phase, which is considered separate from the numbered phases deliberately. Think of the pipeline as a two-step process: A data cleansing phase, or pre-processing phase. An important phase that could include a subphase of Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) (not explicitly depicted in the latter diagram). A data analysis phase that begins with Feature Extraction, followed by Model Fitting, and Model validation, all the way to deployment of an Uber pipeline JAR into Spark: Pipeline diagram Referring to the preceding diagram, the first implementation objective is to set up Spark inside an SBT project. An SBT project is a self-contained application, which we can run on the command line to predict Iris labels. In the SBT project,  dependencies are specified in a build.sbt file and our application code will create its  own SparkSession and SparkContext. So that brings us to a listing of implementation objectives and these are as follows: Get the Iris dataset from the UCI Machine Learning Repository Conduct preliminary EDA in the Spark shell Create a new Scala project in IntelliJ, and carry out all implementation steps, until the evaluation of the Random Forest classifier Deploy the application to your local Spark cluster Step 1# Getting the Iris dataset from the UCI Machine Learning Repository Head over to the UCI Machine Learning Repository website at and click on Download: Data Folder. Extract this folder someplace convenient and copy over iris.csv into the root of your project folder. You may refer back to the project overview for an in-depth description of the Iris dataset. We depict the contents of the iris.csv file here, as follows: A snapshot of the Iris dataset with 150 sets You may recall that the iris.csv file is a 150-row file, with comma-separated values. Now that we have the dataset, the first step will be performing EDA on it. The Iris dataset is multivariate, meaning there is more than one (independent) variable, so we will carry out a basic multivariate EDA on it. But we need DataFrame to let us do that. How we create a dataframe as a prelude to EDA is the goal of the next section. Step 2# Preliminary EDA Before we get down to building the SBT pipeline project, we will conduct a preliminary EDA in spark-shell. The plan is to derive a dataframe out of the dataset and then calculate basic statistics on it. We have three tasks at hand for spark-shell: Fire up spark-shell Load the iris.csv file and build DataFrame Calculate the statistics We will then port that code over to a Scala file inside our SBT project. That said, let’s get down to loading the iris.csv file (inputting the data source) before eventually building DataFrame. Step 3# Creating an SBT project Lay out your SBT project in a folder of your choice and name it IrisPipeline or any name that makes sense to you. This will hold all of our files needed to implement and run the pipeline on the Iris dataset. The structure of our SBT project looks like the following: Project structure We will list dependencies in the build.sbt file. This is going to be an SBT project. Hence, we will bring in the following key libraries: Spark Core Spark MLlib Spark SQL The following screenshot illustrates the build.sbt file: The build.sbt file with Spark dependencies The build.sbt file referenced in the preceding snapshot is readily available for you in the book’s download bundle. Drill down to the folder Chapter01 code under ModernScalaProjects_Code and copy the folder over to a convenient location on your computer. Drop the iris.csv file that you downloaded in Step 1 – getting the Iris dataset from the UCI Machine Learning Repository into the root folder of our new SBT project. Refer to the earlier screenshot that depicts the updated project structure with the iris.csv file inside of it. Step 4# Creating Scala files in SBT project Step 4 is broken down into the following steps: Create the Scala file iris.scala in the com.packt.modern.chapter1 package. Up until now, we relied on SparkSession and SparkContext, which spark-shell gave us. This time around, we need to create SparkSession, which will, in turn, give us SparkContext. What follows is how the code is laid out in the iris.scala file. In iris.scala, after the package statement, place the following import statements: import org.apache.spark.sql.SparkSession Create SparkSession inside a trait, which we shall call IrisWrapper: lazy val session: SparkSession = SparkSession.builder().getOrCreate() Just one SparkSession is made available to all classes extending from IrisWrapper. Create val to hold the iris.csv file path: val dataSetPath = “>\\iris.csv” Create a method to build DataFrame. This method takes in the complete path to the Iris dataset path as String and returns DataFrame: def buildDataFrame(dataSet: String): DataFrame = {/* The following is an example of a dataSet parameter string: “C:\\Your\\Path\\To\\iris.csv”*/ Import the DataFrame class by updating the previous import statement for SparkSession: import org.apache.spark.sql.{DataFrame, SparkSession} Create a nested function inside buildDataFrame to process the raw dataset. Name this function getRows. getRows which takes no parameters but returns Array[(Vector, String)]. The textFile method on the SparkContext variable processes the iris.csv into RDD[String]: val result1: Array[String] = session.sparkContext.textFile(>) The resulting RDD contains two partitions. Each partition, in turn, contains rows of strings separated by a newline character, ‘\n’. Each row in the RDD represents its original counterpart in the raw data. In the next step, we will attempt several data transformation steps. We start by applying a flatMap operation over the RDD, culminating in the DataFrame creation. DataFrame is a view over Dataset, which happens to the fundamental data abstraction unit in the Spark 2.0 line. Step 5# Preprocessing, data transformation, and DataFrame creation We will get started by invoking flatMap, by passing a function block to it, and successive transformations listed as follows, eventually resulting in Array[(, String)]. A vector represents a row of feature measurements. The Scala code to give us Array[(, String)] is as follows: //Each line in the RDD is a row in the Dataset represented by a String, which we can ‘split’ along the new //line characterval result2: RDD[String] = result1.flatMap { partition => partition.split(“\n”).toList } //the second transformation operation involves a split inside of each line in the dataset where there is a //comma separating each element of that line val result3: RDD[Array[String]] =“,”)) Next, drop the header column, but not before doing a collection that returns an Array[Array[String]]: val result4: Array[Array[String]] = result3.collect.drop(1) The header column is gone; now import the Vectors class: import Now, transform Array[Array[String]] into Array[(Vector, String)]: val result5 = => (Vectors.dense(row(1).toDouble, row(2).toDouble, row(3).toDouble, row(4).toDouble),row(5))) Step 6# Creating, training, and testing data Now, let’s split our dataset in two by providing a random seed: val splitDataSet: Array[org.apache.spark.sql.Dataset[org.apache.spark.sql.Row]] = dataSet.randomSplit(Array(0.85, 0.15), 98765L) Now our new splitDataset contains two datasets: Train dataset: A dataset containing Array[(Vector, iris-species-label-column: String)] Test dataset: A dataset containing Array[(Vector, iris-species-label-column: String)] Confirm that the new dataset is of size 2: splitDataset.sizeres48: Int = 2 Assign the training dataset to a variable, trainSet: val trainDataSet = splitDataSet(0)trainSet: org.apache.spark.sql.Dataset[org.apache.spark.sql.Row] = [iris-features-column: vector, iris-species-label-column: string] Assign the testing dataset to a variable, testSet: val testDataSet = splitDataSet(1)testSet: org.apache.spark.sql.Dataset[org.apache.spark.sql.Row] = [iris-features-column: vector, iris-species-label-column: string] Count the number of rows in the training dataset: trainSet.countres12: Long = 14 Count the number of rows in the testing dataset: testSet.countres9: Long = 136 There are 150 rows in all. Step 7# Creating a Random Forest classifier In reference to Step 5 – DataFrame Creation. This DataFrame ‘dataFrame’ contains column names that corresponds to the columns present in the DataFrame produced in that step The first step to create a classifier is to  pass into it (hyper) parameters. A fairly comprehensive list of parameters look like this: From ‘dataFrame’ we need the Features column name – iris-features-column From ‘dataFrame’ we also need the Indexed label column name – iris-species-label-column The sqrt setting for featureSubsetStrategy Number of features to be considered per split (we have 150 observations and four features that will make our max_features value 2) Impurity settings—values can be gini and entropy Number of trees to train (since the number of trees is greater than one, we set a tree maximum depth), which is a number equal to the number of nodes The required minimum number of feature measurements (sampled observations), also known as the minimum instances per node Look at the IrisPipeline.scala file for values of each of these parameters. But this time, we will employ an exhaustive grid search-based model selection process based on combinations of parameters, where parameter value ranges are specified. Create a randomForestClassifier instance. Set the features and featureSubsetStrategy: val randomForestClassifier = new RandomForestClassifier() .setFeaturesCol(irisFeatures_CategoryOrSpecies_IndexedLabel._1) .setFeatureSubsetStrategy(“sqrt”) Start building Pipeline, which has two stages, Indexer and Classifier: val irisPipeline = new Pipeline().setStages(Array[PipelineStage](indexer) ++ Array[PipelineStage](randomForestClassifier)) Next, set the hyperparameter num_trees (number of trees) on the classifier to 15, a Max_Depth parameter, and an impurity with two possible values of gini and entropy. Build a parameter grid with all three hyperparameters: val finalParamGrid: Array[ParamMap] = Step 8# Training the Random Forest classifier Next, we want to split our training set into a validation set and a training set: val validatedTestResults: DataFrame = new TrainValidationSplit() On this variable, set Seed, set EstimatorParamMaps, set Estimator with irisPipeline, and set a training ratio to 0.8: val validatedTestResults: DataFrame = new TrainValidationSplit().setSeed(1234567L).setEstimator(irisPipeline) Finally, do a fit and a transform with our training dataset and testing dataset. Great! Now the classifier is trained. In the next step, we will apply this classifier to testing the data. Step 9# Applying the Random Forest classifier to test data The purpose of our validation set is to be able to make a choice between models. We want an evaluation metric and hyperparameter tuning. We will now create an instance of a validation estimator called TrainValidationSplit, which will split the training set into a validation set and a training set: val validatedTestResults.setEvaluator(new MulticlassClassificationEvaluator()) Next, we fit this estimator over the training dataset to produce a model and a transformer that we will use to transform our testing dataset. Finally, we perform a validation for hyperparameter tuning by applying an evaluator for a metric. The new ValidatedTestResults DataFrame should look something like this: ——–+ |iris-features-column|iris-species-column|label| rawPrediction| probability|prediction| +——————–+——————-+—–+——————–+ | [4.4,3.2,1.3,0.2]| Iris-setosa| 0.0| [40.0,0.0,0.0]| [1.0,0.0,0.0]| 0.0| | [5.4,3.9,1.3,0.4]| Iris-setosa| 0.0| [40.0,0.0,0.0]| [1.0,0.0,0.0]| 0.0| | [5.4,3.9,1.7,0.4]| Iris-setosa| 0.0| [40.0,0.0,0.0]| [1.0,0.0,0.0]| 0.0| Let’s return a new dataset by passing in column expressions for prediction and label: val validatedTestResultsDataset:DataFrame =“prediction”, “label”) In the line of code, we produced a new DataFrame with two columns: An input label A predicted label, which is compared with its corresponding value in the input label column That brings us to the next step, an evaluation step. We want to know how well our model performed. That is the goal of the next step. Step 10# Evaluate Random Forest classifier In this section, we will test the accuracy of the model. We want to know how well our model performed. Any ML process is incomplete without an evaluation of the classifier. That said, we perform an evaluation as a two-step process: Evaluate the model output Pass in three hyperparameters: val modelOutputAccuracy: Double = new MulticlassClassificationEvaluator() Set the label column, a metric name, the prediction column label, and invoke evaluation with the validatedTestResults dataset. Note the accuracy of the model output results on the testing dataset from the modelOutputAccuracy variable. The other metrics to evaluate are how close the predicted label value in the ‘predicted’ column is to the actual label value in the (indexed) label column. Next, we want to extract the metrics: val multiClassMetrics = new MulticlassMetrics(validatedRDD2) Our pipeline produced predictions. As with any prediction, we need to have a healthy degree of skepticism. Naturally, we want a sense of how our engineered prediction process performed. The algorithm did all the heavy lifting for us in this regard. That said, everything we did in this step was done for the purpose of evaluation. Who is being evaluated here or what evaluation is worth reiterating? That said, we wanted to know how close the predicted values were compared to the actual label value. To obtain that knowledge, we decided to use the MulticlassMetrics class to evaluate metrics that will give us a measure of the performance of the model via two methods: Accuracy Weighted precision val accuracyMetrics = (multiClassMetrics.accuracy, multiClassMetrics.weightedPrecision) val accuracy = accuracyMetrics._1 val weightedPrecsion = accuracyMetrics._2 These metrics represent evaluation results for our classifier or classification model. In the next step, we will run the application as a packaged SBT application. Step 11# Running the pipeline as an SBT application At the root of your project folder, issue the sbt console command, and in the Scala shell, import the IrisPipeline object and then invoke the main method of IrisPipeline with the argument iris: sbt consolescala>import com.packt.modern.chapter1.IrisPipelineIrisPipeline.main(Array(“iris”)Accuracy (precision) is 0.9285714285714286 Weighted Precision is: 0.9428571428571428 Step 12# Packaging the application In the root folder of your SBT application, run: sbt package When SBT is done packaging, the Uber JAR can be deployed into our cluster, using spark-submit, but since we are in standalone deploy mode, it will be deployed into [local]: The application JAR file The package command created a JAR file that is available under the target folder. In the next section, we will deploy the application into Spark. Step 13# Submitting the pipeline application to Spark local At the root of the application folder, issue the spark-submit command with the class and JAR file path arguments, respectively. If everything went well, the application does the following: Loads up the data. Performs EDA. Creates training, testing, and validation datasets. Creates a Random Forest classifier model. Trains the model. Tests the accuracy of the model. This is the most important part—the ML classification task. To accomplish this, we apply our trained Random Forest classifier model to the test dataset. This dataset consists of Iris flower data of so far not seen by the model. Unseen data is nothing but Iris flowers picked in the wild. Applying the model to the test dataset results in a prediction about the species of an unseen (new) flower. The last part is where the pipeline runs an evaluation process, which essentially is about checking if the model reports the correct species. Lastly, pipeline reports back on how important a certain feature of the Iris flower turned out to be. As a matter of fact, the petal width turns out to be more important than the sepal width in carrying out the classification task. Thus we implemented an ML workflow or an ML pipeline. The pipeline combined several stages of data analysis into one workflow. We started by loading the data and from there on, we created training and test data, preprocessed the dataset, trained the RandomForestClassifier model, applied the Random Forest classifier to test data, evaluated the classifier, and computed a process that demonstrated the importance of each feature in the classification.

first_imgThe move follows several weeks of high-level meetings in the Pentagon among military chiefs, secretaries and Defense Department leaders, including one Monday involving Carter and the chiefs of the various services.Military leaders have pointed to the gradual — and ultimately successful — transition after the ban on gays serving openly in the military was lifted in 2011. Although legislation repealing that ban passed Congress in late 2010, the military services spent months conducting training and reviews before the decision actually took effect the following September.The latest Pentagon move comes just weeks after the Supreme Court upheld the right of same-sex couples to marry.Officials familiar with the Pentagon meetings said the chiefs of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force did not express opposition to lifting the ban. Instead, they said the military leaders asked for time to figure out health care, housing and other questions and also to provide information and training to the troops to ensure a smooth transition.Although guidelines require that transgender individuals be dismissed from the military, the services in recent months have required more senior leaders to make the final decisions on those cases, effectively slowing the dismissal process.

Bradley Manning, is escorted out of a courthouse in Fort Meade, Md., after the third day of his court martial. The Associated Press has learned that Pentagon leaders are finalizing plans aimed at lifting the ban on transgender individuals serving in the military. Senior U.S. officials say an announcement is expected this week. They say the military would have six months to determine the impact and work out details, with the presumption that they would end one of the last gender- or sexuality-based barriers to military service. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File) 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes “Obviously this isn’t finished, but Secretary Carter’s clear statement of intent means that transgender service members should and will be treated with the same dignity as other service members,” said Allyson Robinson, Army veteran and policy director for an association of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender military personnel called Service Members, Partners and Allies for Respect and Tolerance for All, or SPARTA.Brynn Tannehill, who was a Navy pilot before leaving the force and transitioning to a woman, recalled the difficulties when serving.“It was stressful and it was something that I couldn’t talk with anyone about, because if you even breathed a word of it you didn’t know what was going to happen,” said Tannehill, who still serves in Individual Ready Reserve. “You could lose your career, that I’d worked so hard for.”Several Congress members, including Rep. Adam Smith, ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, expressed support for Carter’s decision. But the more conservative Family Research Council questioned the change.“Considering the abysmal condition of our military and a decline in readiness, why is this a top priority for the Obama administration?” said retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, the council’s executive vice president. “The Pentagon must answer whether this proposed policy makes our military more capable of performing its mission.

New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon’s current regulations banning transgender individuals from serving in the military are outdated, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Monday, ordering a six-month study aimed at formally ending one of the last gender- or sexuality-based barriers to military service.Carter said he is creating a working group that will review the policies and determine if lifting the ban would have any impact on the military’s ability to be ready for battle. But he said the group will begin with the presumption that transgender people should be able to serve openly “without adverse impact on military effectiveness and readiness, unless and except where objective, practical impediments are identified.” The plan, which was first reported by The Associated Press, gives the services time to methodically work through the legal, medical and administrative issues and develop training to ease any transition, and senior leaders believed six months would be sufficient.“The Defense Department’s current regulations regarding transgender service members are outdated and are causing uncertainty that distracts commanders from our core missions,” Carter said in a statement released Monday. “At a time when our troops have learned from experience that the most important qualification for service members should be whether they’re able and willing to do their job, our officers and enlisted personnel are faced with certain rules that tell them the opposite.”Carter asked his personnel undersecretary, Brad Carson, to lead the working group of senior military and civilian leaders to take an objective look at the issue, including the costs, and determine whether it would create any insurmountable problems that could derail the plan. The group would also develop uniform guidelines.During the six months, transgender individuals would still not be able to join the military, but any decisions to force out those already serving would be referred to Carson. One senior official said the goal was to avoid forcing any transgender service members to leave during that time. That official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Some of the key concerns involved in the repeal of the ban include whether the military would conduct or pay for the medical costs of surgeries and other treatment associated with any gender transition, as well as which physical training or testing standards transgender individuals would be required to meet during different stages of their transition.Officials said the military also wants time to tackle questions about where transgender troops would be housed, what uniforms they would wear, what berthing they would have on ships, which bathrooms they would use and whether their presence would affect the ability of small units to work well together. The military has dealt with many similar questions as it integrated the ranks by race, gender and sexual orientation.Transgender people — those who identify with a different gender than they were born with and sometimes take hormone treatments or have surgery to develop the physical characteristics of their preferred gender — are banned from military service. But studies and other surveys have estimated that as many as 15,000 transgender people serve in the active-duty military and the reserves, often in secret but in many cases with the knowledge of their unit commander or peers.last_img read more

first_img Times haven’t been too swell for the “”Federal Housing Administration””: That was apparent, by some accounts, “”when the agency raised insurance premiums for lenders of single-family mortgages in February””:, a choice it made to shore up its crisis-weary Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund.Now, according to “”Fitch Ratings””:, a new tide of mortgage delinquencies and price declines may tip the fund back toward troubled waters ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô and possibly insolvency.[IMAGE]The ratings agency said Friday that it sees problems arising from a difference between 90-day past due delinquency patterns for home loans backed by the agency and those without government guarantees.””This may eventually force the FHA to look for opportunities to put back some defaulted loans to the banks, particularly if the agency’s funding status worsens and U.S. home prices fail to rebound quickly,”” it said in a statement.According to Fitch, the FHA’s fiscal position benefited from the raise in upfront premiums but stays “”very weak”” in lieu of its inability to meet a congressionally required 2 percent capital buffer. [COLUMN_BREAK]The FHA capital ratio buffer currently stands at just 0.24 percent.The ratings agency found that government-backed mortgages constitute 83 percent, or about $66 billion, of 90-day past due delinquencies currently out there on the market.””This highlights the dimension of the growing delinquency problem for the FHA, given the predominant position of FHA-guaranteed loans in the troubled asset categories of major banks,”” Fitch said. “”While delinquency rates for nonguaranteed loans have been improving steadily at these institutions, the trend for FHA-guaranteed loans is starkly different.””A down-payment requirement increase on its way will likely worsen matters for the FHA, according to Fitch, which said that it expects the agency to resort to “”unconventional”” practices in order to prevent a bailout scenario and shore up the beleaguered fund.The scenario isn’t far-off from a crisis several experts predicted last year. “”Joseph Gyourko””:, a real estate and finance professor at the “”University of Pennsylvania””:, reported last fall that the $2.6 billion capital deficit vis-├âãÆ├é┬á-vis $1 trillion in insurance-in-force could mean a bailout.Just by how much?

(Photo by Brad Barket/Invision/AP) NEW YORK, N.Y. – Bruce Springsteen teamed up with country star Eric Church on a version of “Working on the Highway” and Jon Stewart laced into Donald Trump at a bawdy event Monday in New York that gathered comedians and musicians to help raise money for military veterans.Springsteen, a vocal critic of several White House policies, avoided politics completely at the Stand Up for Heroes show, instead offering a few off-colour jokes and four songs, including “Dancing in the Dark,” ”The Hard Land” and “If I Should Fall Behind” with his wife, Patti Scialfa.The Boss, in jeans, a white shirt and a jean jacket, was returning to the event now in its 12 year, having been the musical guest since the beginning. Last year, the Red Hot Chili Peppers took his spot as he worked on his one-man “Springsteen on Broadway.”Stand Up for Heroes is co-presented by the Bob Woodruff Foundation and the New York Comedy Festival. It kicks off the festival and raises money for the Woodruff foundation, which funds programs for injured veterans and their families. The foundation is named for the ABC news anchor injured in Iraq in 2006. It raised over $5.4 million at the event, held at the 6,000-seat Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.Stewart, also a veteran of the event, opened his set ridiculing the notion that America faced a threat from thousands of Central American migrants travelling northward in a caravan. “I’m so scared,” he said. “There’s thousands of sharecroppers coming at America at 1 to 2 miles per hour. They’ll be here by April.”Jimmy Carr, a British comedian, hit the stage with mostly blue, edgy material, but had some jokes at the expense of the commander in chief. “Walls work,” he deadpanned. “I was in China last year. I didn’t see one Mexican.”But the other comedians on the bill stayed away from politics, despite the event being held on the eve of divisive midterm elections.

first_imgOctober 21, 2006 Alumnus Jeff Stein reports on the award ceremony: Here’s how it was earlier this week at the National Design Awards at the Cooper-Hewitt/Smithsonian Museum in New York City: it was crowded, noisy, warm, and every man in the place was dressed in BLACK. First, of course, as with any great awards ceremony, there were DRINKS! And hors doeuvres. In a big tent, blocking 91st Street, in front of the Cooper-Hewitt, folks began to arrive, New Yorkers mostly, a little reticent to approach Soleri who was looking very smart in his formal-wear. Except for official photographers who would lead him away from time to time for portraits. A good interview is in this month’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Journal, multiple copies of which were available to party-goers. There were around 500 of those. There was President Roger Mandle of Brown University, chair of the National Design Awards this year. And architect Richard Meier. And Rev. Howard Moody; he is with us, as is Dino DeConcini. And there’s my neighbor Martha Schwartz, landscape architect from Cambridge. And Diane von Furstenberg. Photo: Alumnus Doug Lee’s daughter Sonya, all grown up, congratulates the award-winner. [Photo & text: Jeff Stein] No one was reticent about approaching Jim Labioda. “Pardon me,” said a tall woman. “Are you Governor Pataki?” “No, Ma’am,” said Labioda, resplendent in a tuxedo that we believe had once been worn by economist John Kenneth Galbraith. “That man right there?” he said, pointing to Roger Tomalty, “I’m his assistant.” By 7:30PM the drinks tent was full of celebrants; no one could move or breathe, a hint that it was time to traipse through the museum lobby and into the dinner tent set-up to cover the garden courtyard of the Museum. 55 tables of 9, black tablecloths, black stemware, bright red goody-bags, six giant video screens, and slinkys, that springy child’s toy, as decoration everywhere. Paolo was in the middle of the room at a table of award recipients, seated next to architect Thom Mayne’s wife, who was in a backless and low-cut gown, accepting an award on behalf of her husband who was in Paris instead of here. Food began to arrive at the tables, and wine; and speeches and video began to flow from the dias. In no time it was dessert and the award presentations. Spike Lee presented an award, mentioning that the Mets were up 1 to 0, bottom of the third. And Robert Downey Jr. said something cheerful about a young award recipient. Awards and their presentors move light and fast. Photo: Alumnus Jim Labioda and Arcosanti planning intern Mario Nuzzolese. [Photo & text: Jeff Stein] Then Milton Glaser presents the Lifetime Achievement Award to Paolo. Glaser actually knows Soleri, understands the work, admires it all. This shows. The crowd, which till now was not thinking about much, slows down, quiets. And Paolo has a few things to say to this crowd, too. About architecture, about religion as dramaturgy, about our responsibility to the future. Paolo’s closeup is live on all the big video screens, his voice miked throughout the giant tent. And then someone hands him the award, a kind of extruded star a foot long made of some mystery material, and its over. Everyone toasts the winners with champaigne, some folks gather up slinkys (I think we’ll be seeing a few of these at Arcosanti), and now, with the ice broken at last, people do come up to Paolo to talk. More desserts and socializing and drinks (witnessing awards is thirsty work!) in the Museum which has thoughtfully opened its bookstore to the crowd. And night settles on the city. Thursday morning, the sun rises over the Atlantic to shine on Paolo Soleri, winner of the National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement.

first_imgThe 4,500 tons of used tyres stockpiled at the Latouros quarry near Dali, outside Nicosia, will be transferred to a secure site at the Vassiliko Cement factory, Environment Commissioner Ioanna Panayiotou said on Tuesday after a meeting chaired by President Nicos Anastasiades.“Anastasiades responded to the urgent need to transfer the tyres and convened a meeting with all the relevant departments. It was decided that the tyres would be taken to a safe area of Vassiliko and the required funding was approved,” Panayiotou said.Even though there was a fire at Vasiliko earlier this month caused by bruning tyres, Panayiotou said the “area is safe and there is a licenced area and in the future things will be handled correctly”.The tyres at the site have been collected from tyre merchants around Nicosia.Managing director of Latouros Quarries Antonis Antoniou Latouros said on Monday that if the tyres caught fire where they are they would cause severe air pollution, as the smoke would cover a range of tens of kilometres.“In case of fire, as happened on July 3 at Vassiliko cement factory where piles of used tyres were wrapped in flames, the outcome would be devastating,” he said.Director of the department of environment Costas Hadjipanayiotou said that the company responsible for collecting and processing the tyres is breaking the law, as it ignored decrees issued on February 29, 2016, and refused to remove the tyres.“I am in touch with the legal services so that they can authorise our department to undertake the management of the tyres. But the state must be legally secure to make this move,” he said.Owner of the company responsible for collecting the tyres Giorgos Pavlides claimed that there are financial interests preventing their disposal, resulting in large quantities accumulating, adding that the department of the environment is not providing any solutions.“For three years, we were stockpiling tyres at the quarry. We sent a letter to the environmental department and asked Hadjipanayiotou to find a solution for the disposal of the tyres, but we did not receive any response. They also refused to take shredded tyres out of the quarry,” he said.Meanwhile, MPs agreed last Wednesday that a single system needs to be in place for the collection and management of rubber to avoid incidents like the large fire earlier in the month near the Vasiliko cement factory which was caused by large piles of old tyres being stored next to a flammable substance.The issue was discussed at the House environment committee, where MPs heard that if the fire had not been contained it would have caused a huge disaster in the area as the factory is located in the same area as the VTTV oil depot and an electricity authority (EAC) substation.Disy MP Giorgos Karoulas, who registered the issue for discussion, said that it is important that a single system is introduced for the collection and management of old tyres, to ensure the safety and health of members of the public.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

This optimism has given way to a new pessimism in policymaking circles and the political class about the global environment A variety of factors seem to have contributed to this Firstthe UPAs success in dealing with the immediate aftermath of the trans-Atlantic financial crisis and the global economic slowdown in the 2008-10 period may have injected an element of hubris among policymakers about Indias economic resilience Those who imagined the Indian economy to be insulated from global uncertainties assumed they could pursue reckless policies at home without being hurt It took time for the UPAespecially the ministry of financeto understand the likely impact of the trans-Atlantic financial crisis and economic slowdown on investor sentiment and the need to take pro-active measures to insulate India While the commerce ministry was busy celebrating the newly discovered south-south trade flows and hoping these would sustain Indias exports even after the trans-Atlantic economies had slowed down and started turning protectionistthe ministry of finance began mistreating foreign investorsassuming Indias attractions were adequate compensation and that no market was equally attractive Consider the nature of the angry debate in India on foreign direct investment in multibrand retail Everyone assumed that the moment the government opened the doors to FDIit would flood in When the doors were finally openednot even a trickle flowed in The policy steps taken in 2009-12 and the debate itself had sapped global confidence in India To make matters worsethe waywardness of economic policymaking and weak management of key infrastructure sectors in 2009-12 induced a virtual investment famine andworsecapital flight from India Adding to these domestic factors were global trendsincluding the rising threat of protectionism and regionalism in global trade The defensive response of crisis-ridden trans-Atlantic economies to globalisation and global economic governance contributed to an exaggerated reading at home of the motives of Western policy Indias policymakerswho worry today about the harmful impact of Ben Bernankes monetary tightening on the rupee and Indias balance of paymentsworried two years ago about his quantitative easing (QE1 and QE2) We worried when the US dollar was becoming cheaper and we worry when it is becoming dearer There is no doubt that the external economic environment in 2013 is less hospitable than it was a decade ago Howeverthe mistake many in New Delhi made was to confuse difficulty with hostility When other countries began taking actions to protect their own economic prospects in a difficult global environmentit was assumed these were aimed at specifically hurting India Maybe some of these measures were aimed at slowing China down India suffered collateral damage but our response was too weak to prevent itmore so to overcome it Trans-Atlantic strategic and economic policy may well be hurting India But one response to it would be to imagine that it is intended to hurt India and become resentfulanother response would be to ensure that it does notin factdo so The latter would call for pro-active measures aimed at winning over investors and securing markets Strategic autonomy is not secured by merely asserting ones independenceit is secured by creating mutually beneficial inter-dependencies It would seem that this is precisely what Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram has been trying to do In times of crisisfinance ministers double up as foreign ministersencashing IOUs and enticing investors How successful they are would depend on how much support they get at home Chidambarams attempts to bring in investment from a wide range of capital surplus countries can turn the tide for Indiaprovided appropriate policy support is available on the economicpolitical and foreign policy fronts But taking appropriate measures requires greater self-confidence within the policymaking leadership If the narrative is that the world is out to hurt India and any gesture to the world is an act of surrenderno government would be able to act But if the narrative is that in a competitive and challenging global environmentIndia must take steps to win over investors and secure marketsit would be easier to sell policies aimed at creating a global environment conducive to Indias economic development the

monitored through CCTV cameras The CISF believes that this will not only help change the behaviour of personnel towards commuters but also vice-versa With this the department aims to ensure that the commuters taking the Metro too become orderly and to reduce the risk of misbehaviour at stations The department intends to bring about the change in a phased manner and has identified eight Metro stations in the first phase to implement the idea CISF Director General Arvind Ranjan said “The idea is to start enforcing disciplined behaviour of staff at the Metro stations This way commuters

searching becomes more effective and orderly” In this initial stage the system will be implemented in eight Metro stations — Dwarka Sectors 8 12 13 and 14 Yamuna Bank Civil Lines Vidhan Sabha and Race

but the teacher and citizen Perumal Murugan of Tiruchengode Tamil Nadu was still alive He announced his death himself The cause of death was his novel Madhorubhagan (2010) translated from Tamil to English as One Part Woman (2014) by Aniruddhan Vasudevan A young woman in this fiction is desperate to have a child She decides as a last resort to take part in a temple festival where for one night consensual sex is permissible between any man and woman The temple is dedicated to the one-part-woman god Ardhanareeswara Actually this fiction was only an excuse The cause of the writer’s death was intimidation a form of censorship increasingly practised in India by individuals and groups The real cause was the ideological agenda behind the intimidation Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making news Four years after Murugan’s novel was published caste-based groups slow readers all claimed the book “hurt” their religious sentiments and “defamed” women the region and the community The BJP-RSS on the lookout for allies pulled out its familiar script: Mob censorship can divide people; division can court vote banks (It also destroys free speech and cultural well-being but that can be passed off as nationalism) Used to conflating history and fiction the self-appointed censors put on their police uniforms Instead of ignoring the thought police as aberrant haters of idea imagination and word the real police took them seriously The writer was summoned for “peace talks” He was hounded into signing an apology and “withdrawing” his novel He then took to Facebook to announce his death as a writer Between last January and this July the writer floated dead and alive in a menacing purgatory In October 2015 he got an award from the Samanvay Bhasha Samman His “shadow” the publisher came to Delhi to receive the award But there was a statement from the writer’s “ghost” With heartbreaking logic the ghost said “The Samanvay Award for Madhorubhagan is a modern recognition given to Tamil a classical language with a long and unbroken literary tradition This recognition bestowed on my language at an unfortunate moment will I hope be a shining gem rather than an unsightly wart” In July 2016 the writer was resurrected The Madras High Court told him he could come back to life think and imagine again pick up his pen Murugan the writer has accepted this offer of a second life: “It comforts a heart that had shrunk and wilted I am trying to prop myself up holding onto the light of the last lines of the judgment: ‘Let the author be resurrected to do what he is best at Write’ I will get up” Madhorubhagan has been described by Tamil critics as an imaginative effort to map the lore and ethos of the place Murugan comes from; to people it with characters who long for a reliable livelihood marriage children and acceptance by the community But the point is not whether the novel is award-winning or even good The point is not whether a temple festival sanctioned a permissive night or whether women wanting to conceive took advantage of this night The real point is that the BJP-RSS and its casteist allies unmake India by depriving Indians of their rights not only to write but to read what they will They insult their intelligence when they look to authority — whether the state its “cultural” cohorts the court Batra-clones Nihalani-doubles or caste- and community-obsessed groups — to decide what we will read write paint sing see or how we will live in our homes classrooms and streets The Madras High Court has bravely begun its judgement with Voltaire: “I may not agree with what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it” The court has performed its new job of bringing writers back to life and it has done it reasonably well Quite rightly there is gratitude and jubilation among readers writers and citizens partial to reason and imagination But the judgement also forces us to confront the times we live in;
