first_img Posted Feb 10, 2014 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Comments are closed. Matthew P. Payne has been selected to serve as Director of Operations of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church (HSEC). Payne is Lay Canon for Administration for the Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac and will be responsible for membership management, subscription management of Anglican and Episcopal History, the Society’s Quarterly Journal, financial and corporate responsibilities, meeting planning and information technology management. He continues in his position with the diocese.For over a century HSEC has been an association dedicated to preserving and disseminating information about the history of the Episcopal Church. Founded in Philadelphia in 1910 as the Church Historical Society, its members include scholars, writers, teachers, ministers (lay and ordained) and many others who have an interest in the objectives and activities of the Historical Society.“I look forward to managing the administration of HSEC activities” Payne shared with the search committee. “My goal is for the necessities of operations to function quietly, behind the scenes so the important work of the Society is front and center.”Over the next month Payne is working to enable a smooth transition with Susan Johnson, who is retiring from the position the end of February.Payne was selected following a search chaired by HSEC President the Rev. Dr. Robert W. Prichard. The Search Team interviewed multiple candidates before making the selection of Payne.

first_img The way charities react to public concerns about spending money on their fixed costs could be fuelling an “innovation slowdown” in the voluntary sector.Speaking at the Fundraising Insights conference in London last week, Warwick University’s Kimberley Scharf told delegates that fixed costs “present no special challenges for the private sector”, where the need to incur them in a competitive business is well understood.But she said the “peculiar way” that donors believe that charities ought not incur fixed costs, and that only variable costs are a measure of actual programme activities, “makes no sense from an economist’s perspective”.Fixed costs (or overheads), as opposed to variable costs, are those – such as IT and salaries – that do not scale up with output, but can nonetheless lead to efficiencies.Scharf, a professor of economics, said: “If donors are reluctant to pay fixed costs, and this is a situation that charities are faced with, then there is no guarantee that the most cost-effective charities are selected by donors and this leads to overall inefficiencies in the charity sector.“And if charities respond to donors’ concerns with inefficient strategies, we will see an innovation slowdown in the voluntary sector.”Scharf also presented results of laboratory experiments in which subjects had been given the option of donating to two charities where one was more effective than the other but incurred higher fixed costs to achieve that level of effectiveness. In only 63 per cent of cases did people give to the more efficient charity (the one with the higher fixed costs).Scharf told delegates this was because the public perceived fixed costs to be a “riskier” use of their donation. “It’s not the fear of the fixed cost itself, it’s the fear of how other donors might view them. If others don’t give to a charity with high fixed costs, then a donation you make to that charity could be inefficient.”As a result donors spread their donations across efficient and inefficient charities, even though those with the higher fixed costs could actually be the more efficient ones.Scharf said the way charities had responded to donors concerns in the past had been “mostly reactive”. She concluded: “If we know what donors’ problems [with fixed costs] are, then we can target what they really think, rather than what we think their perception is.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Finance innovation Management Research / statistics  30 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Charities’ reactions to concerns about overhead costs fuelling an “innovation slowdown” Howard Lake | 9 April 2014 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_imgFacebook Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Twitter ReddIt Facebook World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Michael Rogers Linkedin Michael Rogers ACT, SAT scores now optional for students applying to TCU in 2021 Michael Rogers Michael Rogers Michael Rogers ‘Unchartered territory’ as Trump impeachment trial begins in the Senate Former President Jimmy Carter hospitalized Linkedin printThe aftermath of a college football game day tailgate: red solo cups, empty cans, plates and shrink wrap scattered throughout the backyard or driveway.As one popular saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and in the case of TCU students Devin Gallemore and Chandler Fields, that statement couldn’t be more true. They decided to come up with a trash clean up service for student tailgaters. Together, they are the “Dumpster Divers.”“It’s Uber for trash,” junior economics major Gallemore said.  “It’s on-demand trash pick-up. What we do is if there’s piles of trash on your property that won’t fit into your waste bin and you call us, we’ll come in and take care of it.”Gallemore said other trash collection services around campus charge students around $100 dollars for a similar service, but their service charges only $20.Gallemore is the creator of the service and both him and Fields are in the early stages of recruiting more drivers. Drivers for “Dumpster Divers” keep 70 percent of the $20 profit per pickup, roughly $14.  The business itself keeps the other 30 percent.“To go from TCU to the Waste Management dump costs $2.17 in gas,” Gallemore said.  “You profit just over $11.”Gallemore said the idea came to him when he came back to school this year and people kept calling him to take their trash out because he had a truck. He said his partner Chandler Fields ran into the same issue and they both thought it would nice if they could make some money off of taking out the trash.“We started this to help the TCU community out and make sure things are done the right way to try and reduce littering and illegal dumping,” Fields said.Both Gallemore and Fields said they were unaware of how popular of a demand the trash service would have until they read about the new Texas littering law and the tailgating fines which allows judges to sentence offenders to 60 hours of community service if caught littering.More than just making money and helping the community follow the law, Fields said their trash collection service is their way of living up to the mission statement of TCU.“Part of the TCU mission statement is to ‘educate individuals to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community.’” Fields said. “We want this to be a platform for other students to make a difference that is bigger than themselves.”Currently, “Dumpster Divers” is not sponsored through TCU, but the two have been in contact with landlords who have expressed interest in using the service.Both Fields and Gallemore are looking to find a way to put their service on an app where more drivers can register and users can request trash pickups by alerting drivers on duty. They both also hope to sustain the company after college and are looking to expand their business to other colleges and universities.For more information contact Dumpster Divers at (682) 207-5623.

first_imgThe campaigning efforts of independent coffee shop businesses and local residents have resulted in Costa Coffee backing out from opening an outlet in a Devonshire town.Chris Rogers, managing director of the Whitbread-owned coffee shop business, wrote a letter to local residents of Totnes, the BBC News website revealed, explaining the company had “recognised the strength of feeling” against national brands in the town.He added that Costa had taken into account the “specific circumstances” of Totnes, which is home to more than 40 independent coffee shop businesses, and came to the decision following discussions with local groups.Costa gained approval for the new site on Fore Street from South Hams District Council back in August, but felt the brunt of the anti-Costa campaigning group NoToCosta, which managed to accumulate more than 5,700 signatures on a petition against the move.NoToCosta published a statement on its website last week, which said: “This is a major milestone for local communities and is a day when the value of localism comes into its own, albeit belatedly. Unfortunately, we’re now left with a situation where planning has been granted for change of use. We’d encourage South Hams District Council to learn the lesson that Costa Coffee has had to correct. If localism means communities have the right to decide what happens in their towns, its time for planners to understand this as well.”The letter to Totnes’ residents was also signed by the town’s MP Dr Sarah Wollaston and Mayor Pruw Boswell, who thanked Costa for “listening to our concerns and showing they care”.Last week, Whitbread announced as part of its financial results for the six months to 30 August 2012 that Costa had opened 141 net new coffee shops, taking its total store count to 2,344.The company featured on British Baker’s BB75 list of the top 75 UK bakery firms as this year’s fastest-growing business, adding 852 new stores to its estate over the last five years and opening stores at more than twice the rate of high street bakery retailer Greggs.last_img read more

first_imgBraxton Shelley believes in the holy power of sound.Harvard’s newest assistant professor of music brings years of experience as a composer, pianist, choir director, and minister to his intellectual pursuit of spiritual music.“Having a strong academic study of religion beside the vocational life has enriched me; it adds to the music,” said Shelley, who is also the Stanley A. Marks and William H. Marks Assistant Professor at the Radcliffe Institute. “There’s another level of rigor and sophistication that I think matters because a lot of what animates gospel music is inseparable from the articulation of belief.”The Rocky Mount, N.C., native, whose “Groove” may be the best-named course in the fall catalog, said that all of his formative music experiences took place in church. His first piano teacher was the church musician, and by age 9 Shelley played piano or organ every Sunday at Rocky Mount’s Church of the Open Door-Baptist.Being equally passionate about social justice, he planned to study law and become a politician, but a music theory course provided intellectual depth to the somatic understanding of sound he’d internalized for years.“I knew chord symbols and how to talk about harmonies, but a lot of my early church playing was by ear,” said Shelley, whose second album “I’ve Gotta Tell It” comes out later this year. “A lot of the work is still by ear. Theory put words to what I felt. And at the same time, some of my brighter curiosities related to the social and religious phenomenon coalesced with my interest in music.”Performing provides a constant source of inspiration, Shelley said, pointing to a 2013 concert at Mt. Level Missionary Baptist Church in Durham, N.C., as an example. The show featured original compositions by Shelley, including a fast-paced, groove-based song called “Mighty God” in which an ecstatic shout-and-dance broke out. Shelley sees these moments as “sacraments, extensions of divine presence.”“I was at the piano, watching what I spent a year and a half trying to put to words manifest before my eyes,” he said. “That was a nugget of experience that said to me, ‘Yeah you’re on to something.’”Though he plays piano and organ, sings, and has a master’s in divinity and a Ph.D. in history and theory of music, Shelley said his musical strength lies as a composer.“I have written songs during a church service, sitting at the organ playing,” he said. “I’ve written songs at the piano during practice time during chill meditative moments, and I’ve just heard melody or words and pitch and then I’ll go work it out.“I’m really patient. I routinely let songs sit in my head six to eight months. I don’t write them down until they’re done, and I know when they’re done. I could finish a song if I wanted to, but I prefer them to work out themselves, so I wait to feel inspired and it’s kind of completely itself.”In “Groove,” a graduate seminar, students will examine the interrelation of rhythm and movement across a historical span reaching back to 17th-century dances such as the passacaglia and chaconne.“The phenomenon of groove is embedded in a long history of music and dance,” Shelley said. “At some level groove is thought to result from the interaction between instrument and/or performers. In this case, groove seems to be understood as both a feeling and a musical entity that facilitates the production of that feeling.“In a broader sense, it’s a cut or ridge that facilitates movement, so I want to see what happens when we put together all of the conversations of the way we think of groove.”Music professor Braxton Shelley directs “Due Glory”last_img read more

first_imgThe curtain is coming down on Kirstie Alley’s (televised) Broadway career. According to The Hollywood Reporter, her TV Land series Kirstie has been canceled after one season. The show, which featured Alley as a high-maintenance Broadway star, concluded its 12-episode season in February, after which time creator and showrunner Marco Pennette left the project. During the show’s first (and only) season, guest stars included Kristin Chenoweth, Cloris Leachman, Jason Alexander, Kathy Griffin, John Travolta and George Wendt. The series followed Madison “Maddie” Banks (Alley), a Broadway diva whose life is flipped upside down when the grown son she gave up for adoption (Broadway alum Eric Petersen) tries to enter her life after the death of his adoptive mother. Additional cast members included Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards.center_img View Commentslast_img read more

first_imgWith August arriving, the temperatures climbing, and the humidity choking off all motivation to hit the trail in any capacity, outdoor recreation is relegated to the river. Not that this is a bad thing, but running whitewater is not for everyone, nor is it the most economical activity to be involved in. Kayaking takes years to master, canoeing can get too dang hot, and hiring a rafting trip can put your weekend over budget in a hurry. Luckily, there is one water activity anyone can master in minutes – nay, seconds as we have practically evolved to do it – takes little to no money, and is as refreshing as it is enjoyable: tubing.Tubing a river is as American as apple pie and as Southern as fried chicken. If you look back at the annuls of Southern water sports, the pond rope swing and monthly bath are probably the only activities that date the tubing trip. There are few things that can be as exciting as they are lazy – combining running a river and maybe a Class I rapid or two, with just sitting in a rubber donut. This weekend, grab your cutoffs, sunscreen and river shoes and head for Cherokee, North Carolina to tube the Oconaluftee River outside Great Smoky Mountains National Park.The Oconaluftee River begins as a mountainside spring in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but by the time it reaches the town of Cherokee, it’s a broad, pristine playground ripe with trout, swimming holes, and tubing. Check out the two-mile trip that begins at the Big Cove Bridge on the tail end of the Raven Fork River and ends just before reaching the town of Cherokee. You’ll float under the Blue Ridge Parkway, bump through small rapids, and have access to The Beach, a local hangout with a sandy river bottom and rope swing. This stretch of river is banked by Great Smoky Mountains National Park on one side and the Cherokee Reservation on the other, so development is minimal. Tubers have even been known to see elk drinking from the river. If you’re looking to test your extreme tubing skills, ask Cherokee Rapids to take you to the class II chute on the Raven Fork just above the typical put-in.Nearby: You’re in the Smokies, so hiking trails stretch in every direction. Check out the Smokemont Loop Trail for a six-mile loop hike through a historic community that thrived before the park was established.Closest Town: Cherokee, N.C.Directions: Cherokee Rapids ( is located off of Highway 441 in Saunooke Village.View Larger Maplast_img read more

first_imgHolding oneself accountable is more than a slogan or bumper sticker. A fundamental tenet extraordinary leaders embrace is that the degree to which they hold themselves accountable dictates the extent of their empowerment and ability to effect positive change. When this perspective is primary, it forwards actions and builds trust. When it’s absent, it not only feeds a blame game but narrows executives’ perspectives about how to make an impact.This principle reverberates through many aspects of strategic execution. “So-and-so department is in charge of that project and we’re just waiting for them (to get their act together)” is a perspective that dictates a lack of empowerment. Contrast that with, “Yep, they’re assigned this project and yet I know they need help, so we will step in.”As a common yet largely underappreciated example, we hold that you are accountable for managing your mood. Period. It’s easy to rationalize a bad mood by pointing to a stressful work assignment, a pushy colleague or a harried commute. But that looming deadline and the driver who cut you off on the highway don’t have the authority to determine your emotional outlook and attitude for the rest of the day. 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

first_img“When will the EU learn to think longer term, and in the interest of the majority, and not the minority,” Smith said to delegates at the organisation’s annual Investment Conference in Edinburgh.Smith also said the NAPF remained concerned over the numerous European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) consultations on solvency requirements for pension schemes expected this year.However, he claimed victory for the NAPF over the delayed introduction of these requirements.“We are also concerned about the risk evaluation for pensions, and a mandatory, EU-wide, two-page benefit statement for members,” he said, referring to the level of prescription seen in the latest version of the European Commission’s IORP II Directive.“The European Commission keeps coming up with ideas that fail to address the real issues,” he said.Smith also argued that the increase in de-risking seen from UK defined benefit schemes was increasing demand for long-duration index-linked government bonds.Over the last five years, he pointed out, UK schemes have increased fixed income allocations from roughly 20% of portfolios to approximately 45%, despite low yields.“We need governments to issue more long-term index-linked debt,” he said. ”The demand is there, and it needs to be matched in supply.”The UK is to auction a 38-year, index-linked Gilt towards the end of this month.Smith also said, with an increasing number of schemes uprating pensions by the consumer prices index (CPI), the lobby group had entered discussions with the government and the Debt Management Office (DMO) over CPI-linked UK Gilts.Discussion over the concept of CPI-linked bonds has been ongoing for some time.However, speaking at an NAPF event in November, DMO chief executive Robert Stheeman said, while it would never rule out CPI-linked issuance, demand from pension funds was still “too sticky” for it to be cost effective for the UK government. The chair of the UK National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) has criticised the regulatory bodies of the European Union, accusing them of having the wrong priorities.The lobby group’s chair, Ruston Smith, who took up his position in October last year, said a number of propositions out of Brussels and Frankfurt continued to be a source of real concern for the organisation.He said the NAPF, alongside the asset management industry and the UK government, would continue their fight against the controversial financial transaction tax (FTT), whilst conceding Brussels seemed determined to push ahead.This comes after the EU11, the name given to the 11 member states pushing for the introduction of the FTT, ramped up their attempts for implementation. last_img read more

first_imgLast season, the Wisconsin passing attack stumbled out of the gates, struggling to find consistent success through its first four games before finally settling into its groove.There were no such problems Saturday, as the Wisconsin offense racked up 486 yards of total offense and scored 42 points in a season-opening victory over Washington State. Highlighting the offensive explosion was the pass-and-catch combination of seniors Tyler Donovan and Luke Swan.Swan kicked off his final season in fashion, establishing new career-high marks for receptions (8), receiving yards (170) and touchdowns (2).Along the way, the UW captain emerged as the go-to receiver for Donovan, the team’s new starting quarterback.In the opening drive of the game, Donovan completed his first pass of the season to Swan. Seven plays later, Donovan and Swan connected again for a 5-yard touchdown to cap a nine-play, 61-yard scoring drive. The offense gained 48 of those yards through the air.”They tried to set a statement, try to stop the run early and we wanted to take advantage of going over the top [of the defense],” Donovan said.Thanks to the game plan from offensive coordinator Paul Chryst and accurate passing from Donovan, Swan was able to set the Washington State secondary ablaze.”Tyler and I have a great comfort level,” Swan said. “We came in together, and he threw a lot of great balls and coach Chryst made some great calls.”Another factor contributing to Swan’s great day was the fact that Washington State started three new players in their defensive backfield — cornerbacks Chima Nwachukwu and Devin Giles, and strong safety Alfonso Jackson.”You want to attack that in some ways,” Donovan said of Wazzu’s inexperience. “There were some situations where we knew we were going to get some one-on-one [coverage] opportunities, and we tried to take advantage of it.”One such opportunity presented itself with less than one minute left in the first half. Already leading by a touchdown, Swan was able to beat single coverage deep, and Donovan hit him in stride in the end zone for a pretty 38-yard touchdown pass with 30 seconds to go.”We’ve got a lot of go-to receivers on this team … and Luke’s one of them,” Donovan said. “If you ever get a one-on-one with Luke, you try to take advantage of it.”That touchdown pass was just one example of Swan’s ability to find himself open, either behind or between defensive backs.”I think it was more what coach Chryst brought to the table,” said Swan, not taking full credit for his great day. “He saw the zones, had a great game plan, the other guys were working for me and I did the same for them and got some catches.”By day’s end, Swan’s season opener was one for the record books. With his 170-yard effort, he found himself on a short list of players who have had 170-yard receiving games, mentioned in the same breath as former UW greats Lee Evans, Al Toon, Chris Chambers and Pat Richter.”I really didn’t have any idea coming in what would happen at all,” Swan said. “As a freshman, I was just looking to play football, get on the field in some way. It’s been a fun ride and I’ve really enjoyed it.”While Swan was Donovan’s favorite target on the day, the quarterback found success seemingly everywhere he looked. Aside from a handful of throws he missed to open receivers, Donovan was sharp, surprising none of his teammates.”He showed he was a competitor in Iowa and against Buffalo,” Swan said. “He just came out and did exactly what he does every day in practice. I’m really happy with the way he played, the way he was competitive and really led the team.”last_img read more

first_imgThe president of the Reporters Association of Liberia (RAL), Keith Zalee Morris, has contended that the declaration of a State of Emergency by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is not for the purpose of fighting Ebola, because a serious and committed government does not need such a declaration to combat a virus.The actual intent of the declaration, he said, is to push forward the surreptitious saleof Liberia’s remaining oil blocks; to create a diversion from the issue of her son Robert Sirleaf’s ineligibility to contest the ensuing October 2014 Senatorial elections; while at the same time, and above all, to muzzle the press.Addressing journalists at a press conference in Monrovia Monday, Mr. Morris noted that the Liberian leader did not show any degree of commitment to fighting the virus until it took away the lives of Patrick Sawyer and prominent medical doctors.“No democratic state can grow in the absence of a vibrant and proactive media,” Morris said, adding that there can be no development if the media is being muzzled or harassed.He reminded his fellow journalists of the likes of former Presidents Samuel K. Doe and Charles Taylor, whose regimes were short-lived because of their decisions to clampdown on the freedom of the press.“Today, the ugly face of the past continues to be visible in this modern day Liberia,” he maintained, alleging that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and her sons, Robert and Fomba, backed by ‘a rubber stamp legislature’, have blacklisted over twenty (20) journalists and civil society actors ready ‘to be eliminated’ under this emergency period.During her August 6, 2014 radio address to the nation announcing the State of Emergency, President Johnson Sirleaf stated that “Government will institute extraordinary measures, including, if need be, the suspensions of certain rights and privileges”, though she did not specify.According to Morris, the National Security Agency (NSA), headed by Fomba Sirleaf, has a list that includes journalists Otavine Williams, Tetee Gebro, Charles B. Yates and himself, Keith Morris. Others include civil society actors Henry Costa, Vandalark Patricks, Mamensie Kabba, Archie I. Sanor, among others.He said the NSA, with direct instruction from the President’s ‘beloved’ son Robert, is keen on arresting these young men and women for their ‘critical postures’ on national issues.“On Sunday, August 10, 2014,” Morris told journalists, “the list was again opened for discussion at a joint security meeting. In that meeting, the President’s bulldogs agreed to unleash their ‘lethal weapon’ on the media.“Interestingly,” Morris continued, “Deputy Police Director for Operations Abraham Kromah agreed to ‘single-handedly deal with those mentioned.’“We are not deterred by such information because we know the ability and limitation of our security forces. We want to state here in the strongest terms that our government is after the media because we continue to expose the ills in our society as part of our sole responsibilities.“In this critical period of our history, we wish to inform the international community, inclusive of the UN Mission in Liberia, the United States Embassy, European Commission, ECOWAS, African Union and the MRU, that the lives of journalists and civil society activists are under threat by those we employed to protect us.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_imgBerbice River Bridge tolls…commits to dialog with companyGovernment will continue to engage the Berbice Bridge Company Incorporated (BBCI) to find, for the problems besetting its operation, alternatives other than an increase in tolls.Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson made this disclosure on Monday, on the sidelines of the National Toshaos Council’s conference. “Government’s position remains the same…we do think the proposed cost by the Berbice Bridge [Company] is way in excess, and will be burdensome to the citizens of Berbice,” he noted.Minister Patterson said Government is not contemplating toll increases for the BBCI now or in the future; nor is there any consideration of bailouts or subsidies for the bridge company.Patterson is optimistic that the two sides can engage in dialogue and come up with appropriate solutions to the BBCI problems.More than a decade after a public/private partnership (PPP) agreement had allowed construction of the Berbice River Bridge, the bridge company is now facing bankruptcy following Government’s decision to drop the toll, and its subsequent refusal to allow for an increase as per the initial agreement when the company was formed.This is according to BBCI Chairman Dr Surendra Persaud during a press conference last week. Persaud is also Chairman of the National Insurance Scheme (NIS), which holds significant shares in the BBCI.According to Dr Persaud, BBCI officials have had several engagements with Minister Patterson. Following one such engagement, Patterson had informed the BBCI that a maintenance proposal would be taken to Cabinet.Dr Persaud has said that BBCI officials were subsequently informed that toll increases were not approved. In fact, the company had applied for a toll adjustment on three occasions — twice in 2015 and once in 2016 — to no avail. It has since made another such application, dated July 9, 2018. In that application, the company has requested that the toll increases take effect by August 1.But following the press conference, the Public Infrastructure Ministry issued a statement in which it said Government was not contemplating any fare hikes.SharesMeanwhile, based on the announcement made by the company with regard to the proposed increases in tolls, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo told a media conference on Wednesday last that he was against the increases, but, moreso, he would encourage Government to buy more equity in the company.Jagdeo reasoned that Berbicians could not afford the steep increases that the company has proposed at this time. He said this was mainly so because the company is contractually obligated to maintain the Bridge. Instead, he is recommending that Government buy out other shareholders, so the Bridge becomes publicly owned.“Secondly, subsidise the increase that should take place in the toll, so they give an injection into the company so the rate remains flat,” Jagdeo has said.This formula, according to Jagdeo, would entail taking over the debt of the Bridge and securing greater equity in return.Jagdeo reminded that there was a financial model in place under the past Government, but he noted that he was unsure what had become of that under the coalition Government. He strongly believes that the financial model may have been interfered with, and this was something that had to be explained.The company is seeking increases in tolls as per the adjustment formula set out by the agreement between the BBCI and the Government of Guyana. It is understood that this tolling requirement was not applicable until 2014, after which the company made its first request just prior to the former Government leaving office. According to the toll policy, the increase is calculated based on “the level of traffic on and under the bridge for the two previous financial years.”According to the policy, “it takes consideration of the toll levels at the start of operations, any provisional toll level applied during the year, and the toll level at start of operations (is) adjusted for inflation.”The policy goes on to note that the toll level is adjusted by the use of the consumer price index of the most recent period and two years prior to that. The second part of the formula, it added, computes a provisional toll level to be used until near the end of the financial year.The ownership structure of BBCI is made up of ordinary share capital of $500 million owned by private investors, and preference shares of $950 million owned by NIS. The Bridge has a wide cross-section of investors, including various pension schemes, insurance schemes, local banks, as well as private companies and NIS.last_img read more

first_imgImagine a traveling shoe salesman picking up the phone in the Super 8 Motel in Pocatello. It’s the wife calling after she has read the sports page. “Why don’t you fly home every night to be with me, like Phil Mickelson?” PACIFIC PALISADES – Phil Mickelson plans to commute from San Diego by private plane during the Nissan Open so he can spend every night with his family. Mickelson might be the most popular golfer on the pro tour. But he is inviting the resentment of husbands who look forward to their own business trips as little breaks from the wife and kids. “Because I don’t make $47million a year like Phil Mickelson.” “That’s the next thing I was going to complain about.” Mickelson is a traveling shoe salesman, too, in a manner of speaking. He endorses the Callaway ERC Collection. The difference is his meetings happen at places like Riviera Country Club, where the 81st Nissan Open begins at 7 a.m. and runs through Sunday. His rent-a-car is a private jet. Even among the mega-rich at the top of the PGA Tour standings, the 36-year-old known as Lefty is a little different. He sets his own vector. center_img The latest example is what he’s doing this week. A 110-mile commute from Rancho Santa Fe to Pacific Palisades, with takeoffs and landings at the small airports in Carlsbad and Santa Monica. “It feels great,” Mickelson said of this week’s commute as he stood beside the Riviera driving range before the pro-am Wednesday. “Sometimes I’ll do this, where I’ll fly up to maybe Cypress to play a round of golf for a day. It has that feel of just being exciting to go play a great golf course. “And it’s not a very long commute. And it gives me a chance to practice at home on some of my drills at the facilities that I’m used to working on.” And to be with Amy. And to tuck in Amanda, Sophia and Evan. Mickelson said he’ll take off each morning “about two hours before I tee off … It’s only about an hour door-to-door.” Maybe a little more than an hour. Forty minutes in the air, 15 minutes or so on the road on either end, according to Mickelson spokesman T.R. Reinmen. If this seems like a lot of trouble, it isn’t. Mickelson could get home faster than those who have to drive on Sunset Boulevard and the 405. “If I had a plane, I’d probably do it too,” said Charley Hoffman, the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic winner who also is a San Diegan – but trails Mickelson in Tour career earnings $40.5 million to $2.1million. Look at it this way: Mickelson, who never met a fairway bunker he wouldn’t try to fly over, feels the same way about Orange County. The only surprise is that he isn’t flying the Gulfstream II jet he owns and pilots; it’s too big for such a short hop. Phil is renting a Cessna Citation and a pilot for the week. You can do this when, according to Forbes magazine, you earned $47 million between mid-2005 and mid-2006, a stretch that included PGA Championship and Masters triumphs and the second-place, come-from-ahead, “I’m such an idiot” U.S. Open. That income ranks Mickelson fourth in sports behind Tiger Woods ($90 million), Michael Schumacher and Muhammad Ali. Does his jet-setter’s commute mean Mickelson is less committed to the Nissan Open than an opponent who returns to a Brentwood hotel each night and broods about the day’s missed birdie putts? Maybe so, but that assumes that most of his opponents actually go straight back to the hotel and turn in early. What Mickelson is doing has to be better for his game than a night on the town. Mickelson’s decision to take a break from competition between September and January doesn’t look so bad. He has no team to answer to, only sponsors. He looks and sounds focused. Slimmed down from last season, Mickelson started 2007 slowly, failing to crack the top40 in his first threetournaments, before going 20-under par to dominate last week at Pebble Beach. It was his 30th Tour win, tied for 16th all-time (next on the ladder with 31 are Nissan winners “Lighthorse” Harry Cooper and Jimmy Demaret). Mickelson was a last-minute entrant at Riviera, where he hasn’t played since 2001 and hasn’t done better that a tie for 15th. He’s hoping to keep his Pebble Beach momentum. “I felt like I started to play better, even though the results weren’t showing it in Phoenix (where he missed the cut),” Mickelson said. “I wanted to get a couple of more good tournaments under my belt before we started the Masters push back on the East Coast. … What better place to test yourself off the tee than here at Riviera?” It’s almost like being at home. In fact, with that plane, it’s exactly like being at home. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_imgTHE modern marathon is rooted in the tale that in 490 B.C., after the Persians were defeated at the plains of Marathon, the Greek messenger Pheidippides ran 25 miles to Athens to proclaim the victory. After delivering this vital message, he dropped dead. To normal people this story is a parable, at best a warning. To runners – an invitation. I was never a sports person. I never exercised. I never went inside a gym. I didn’t care for any of that. I was a smoker. Not just a “once in a while,” I-don’t-buy-packs-I-just-bum type of smoker. I smoked 30-plus cigarettes a day since the Bush-Quayle administration. Before I finally quit I was gray, phlegmy and would get winded playing Scrabble. Sexy. I decided last year, after I quit, that I was going to run the Los Angeles Marathon. Since I could only run for 45 seconds before gasping for breath, it was the next logical step. (For the record: It took me two weeks to work up to a full minute.) The only reason to keep on running was that was the only time I didn’t want to smoke. The marathon is the only major sports event in Los Angeles where, for a small fee, anyone can compete. (Actually, that may be how the L.A. Galaxy will afford their non-Beckham players in the future.) But for now, the L.A Marathon is it for the laymen. According to its Web site, 23,000 runners of all levels, ages and nationalities will scamper from Universal City to downtown for today’s event. The average finishing time is around 5 hours. That’s really impressive to Angelenos who can spend more time driving the same route on any Friday afternoon. You must work up to a 26.2-mile race. At first I walked more than I ran, then ran more than I walked. I joined a running club. Read magazines, books and bulletin boards. Changed my diet. Changed my shoes. Ran at least three times a week. Training started my indoctrination into having “sports” stuff. Sports drinks. Sports bars. Sport bras. Sport lube. Sports socks. You name it. Then I got a “sports” injury and had to get a “sports” doctor. I went to podiatrist Dr. John Pagliano in Long Beach and graced him with my feet, which would make Bilbo Baggins blush. Pagliano is also a runner. He has finished a whopping 111 marathons in his lifetime. I’m not bragging, but my doctor has more miles on him than a Peterbilt. But even with all this, I still don’t think I look like a runner. We’ve all seen the photographs of those elite athletes built like T-rexes barreling down the road, their rippling muscles and eight-pack stomachs glistening in the sun. That’s not me. Minimal exercise makes me sweat so much it looks like I have just showered. I also turn bright red – all over. When I run I look like I’ve fallen asleep in a tanning booth. I grimace, have terrible posture and have been known to grunt and wheeze. My biggest fear isn’t failing to finish; my biggest fear is that paramedics will think I’m about to die and pre-emptively ask me for my insurance card. But let’s face it. It’s not about looks – it’s about celebrating human endurance and the lengths some of us will go to be able to brag about what we did over the weekend. It’s a long way from a sedentary tobacco chimney to a marathon runner. For me, the great thing is the twisted determination that allowed me to smoke through strep throat and the ’90s is the same twisted determination that enables me to run through pain and having hobbit feet. Only now people admire it. At least I hope they do. My family could be planning an intervention and I wouldn’t have a clue. I’ve been too preoccupied with Epsom salts and ice packs to notice. The way I see it, as long as I don’t shave my head I don’t really have a problem. Right? So come out and cheer me on. You know what I look like. Sexy.

first_img0Shares0000Fans of the club invited Taoist priests on to the pitch to pray for a good result in Sunday’s match with Shandong Luneng, which Henan went on to win 2-1 © AFP / STRSHANGHAI, China, Sep 26 – The Chinese FA have told Super League side Henan Jianye to seek salvation from goals rather than the gods after Taoist priests performed an on-pitch ritual — and the team duly won at home for the first time in over three months.The CFA are investigating after fans of the club invited 15 Taoist priests on to the pitch to pray for a good result in Sunday’s match with Shandong Luneng, which Henan went on to win 2-1. The Paper, a state-run newspaper based in Shanghai, carried a picture of the ritual showing a desk on the pitch covered with a yellow cloth on the eve of the game.There is incense and three flags flutter behind the table bearing mantras including “God’s will is that Jianye must win.”The CFA said that it had asked Henan, whose fears of relegation eased with the victory at their Zhengzhou Hanghai Stadium home, for an explanation.“The football pitch is not a religious place and hosting such activities on a public sports field is neither appropriate nor conforming with the image of professional football,” the CFA said in a statement.“Instead of asking for help from gods outside the pitch, Henan should seek victory through self-endeavour and battling on it.”Henan, for whom former Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United striker Ricardo Vaz Te scored the opener, said on Tuesday they were “touched by the fans’ desire and anxiety for the team to pull it together and fight to stay in the league”.But the club added in the statement: “Victory can’t be gained through prayers.”China has an ambiguous relationship with religion.The officially atheist Communist party stomachs it but keeps tight control for fear of a challenge to its grip on power.It is not the first time this season a Chinese club has gone to bizarre lengths to get back to winning ways at home.Guangzhou R&F repainted their blue-coloured stadium gold in July, saying it was better feng shui — and they have not lost there since.The philosophy of feng shui — literally meaning “wind and water” — is influential in many parts of Asia, where people carefully position items in offices and homes to maximise good fortune and wealth.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img1 FC Copenhagen want Newcastle United to cough up £3.3million for defender Peter Ankersen.The Magpies will be back in the Premier League next season after securing promotion at the first time of asking by winning the Championship.The club are already looking at a number of transfer targets for the summer and Ankersen is high on their shortlist.The right-back has been in fine form for Copenhagen since making his loan move from Red Bull Salzburg permanent in the summer.Indeed, Galatasaray, Marseille, Newcastle and Valencia have all been tracking the Denmark international for a number of months.And now the chasing quartet, according to Calciomercato, have been informed Ankersen can leave for just over £3m.That amount is well within Newcastle’s reported £70m budget, but the price may well go up if all interested clubs submit formal offers.

first_imgENGLISH VERSIONUne membrane réfléchissante est un panneau brillant ou une membrane souple qui est utilisé dans la construction. Bien que la résistance thermique (valeur R) de ces membranes est à peu près de zéro, elles peuvent être utilisées comme partie d’un assemblage en construction — par exemple, un ensemble constitué d’une pellicule radiante et d’un espace d’air — pour ralentir le flux de chaleur.La vente et la distribution des isolants radiants ont toujours attiré une part disproportionnée d’escrocs, dont plusieurs qui promettent des économies d’énergie impossibles. Les explications données par ces bonimenteurs comprennent généralement de multiples références à des véhicules spatiaux et la Nasa. Ayant été influencés par ce type de désinformation, certains constructeurs ont adopté une croyance quasi-religieuse dans les pouvoirs magiques de ces membranes.Alors, quelle est la vérité sur ces produits?Typiquement, il s’agit d’une mince feuille de matériau réfléchissant, souvent d’aluminium, appliquée à un substrat tel que du papier kraft, un film plastique, du carton ou du contreplaqué. Par définition, une membrane réfléchissante a une émissivité [propriété spécifique de la surface d’un objet caractérisant les échanges thermiques par rayonnement] de 0,1 ou moins. Ces membranes réduisent le flux thermique par rayonnement dans l’espace auxquelles elles font face. Plus l’émissivité d’un matériau est faible, plus il est efficace à réduire le flux de chaleur rayonnante.Bien que les membranes réfléchissantes peuvent être constituées d’une variété de matériaux, il est impossible qu’une peinture corresponde à la définition de membrane réfléchissante. Personne n’a encore inventé une peinture dont l’émissivité est de 0,1 ou moins.

first_imgEngland all-rounder Ben Stokes has wished his team good luck for the Ashes which got underway with the first Test being played at the Brisbane Cricket Ground Thursday morning.Stokes posted a video on Twitter in which he promised to cheer for his team from home and also thanked the English fans for travelling all the way to Australia to support Joe Root’s Ben Stokes (@benstokes38) November 22, 2017Stokes is not travelling with the English team to Australia for the Ashes. He was arrested in the early hours of September 26 after an incident in Bristol and missed the fourth and fifth one-day internationals against West Indies last month.Stokes was arrested over his involvement in a brawl outside a pub in Bristol. The news broke as the England selectors were set to meet to finalise the Ashes squad. However, they named Stokes as part of the side.The dashing all-rounder was later dropped from the Ashes squad pending investigation.The ECB gave no further details of the incident, but the BBC said it happened in a city nightclub. Sky Sports Television reported that the 26-year-old player had injured his hand.England currently holds the Ashes after winning the 2015 series 3-2 at home, regaining the urn after its lopsided loss in Australia last time.Meanwhile, Mark Stoneman and James Vince combined defiantly in their first experience of Ashes cricket to blunt Australia’s much-hyped pace attack and help England to 59-1 in the first session of the series.advertisementMitchell Starc struck in the third over to have former England captain Alastair Cook (2) caught at first slip with the total at two, exposing a left-right second-wicket pair with a combined 10 previous Test caps to a potentially hostile initiation.Starc returned 1-14 from 10 overs. Cummins had Stoneman rocking back on his heels with a bouncer in his second over that caught the England opener off guard, and finished the session with 0-13.But the Australians were unable to capitalize on the early breakthrough, and Vince (32 not out) and Stoneman (25 not out) weathered the new ball in a 57-run stand that took the tourists to lunch without further loss after skipper Joe Root won the toss and batted.The banter and bluster from the Australians leading up to the Gabba Test centered on their 5-0 sweep here the last time England toured in 2013-14, when a local pace trio spearheaded by Mitchell Johnson intimidated the batsmen and set the foundation for a series domination.last_img read more

first_imgShare on Messenger Reuse this content Read more It may be too early in the season to describe Sunday’s meeting of Leicester and Sale at Welford Road as an eight-pointer but with the Manchester club starting the fifth round at the bottom of the Premiership and the Tigers having the worst defensive record after the opening four rounds, there will be little comfort for the loser in a season when, without an obvious struggler, every point counts.“We are not looking at the table,” insists the Sale captain, Jono Ross. “There are still 18 games to play. We have not had the start we wanted in the toughest of leagues because we have not been good enough. We have to improve and that starts with hard work. It is far too early to be talking about relegation and all we are focusing on is Leicester.” Sydney summit feels like a pivotal moment in rugby’s modern history Share on WhatsApp Leicester sacked their head coach, Matt O’Connor, three days into the season after losing 40-6 at Exeter while Sale’s director of rugby, Steve Diamond, reacted to their first home defeat by Wasps for eight years last weekend by recruiting the former Northampton forwards coach Dorian West and pledging some old-school training.“There was a fair bit of work done,” says Ross, who had given his side the ideal start against Wasps with a first-minute try. “Everyone was disappointed by the result and we have been taking a hard look at ourselves in the mirror. Dorian will add to our forward game and his experience should help us find an edge there.”There should be tries at Welford Road. Leicester have conceded 21 this season, while Sale have the next leakiest defence, having been breached 17 times. “At this stage of the season a lot can change quickly,” says Ross. “A couple of wins and you are in the top half of the table. We have to stay positive. It will be tough on Sunday but that is the case every time you play in the Premiership.” Premiership While the shape of the domestic season from 2019-20 is expected to be announced in the next couple of weeks after prolonged discussions between the Rugby Football Union, Premiership Rugby and the Professional Rugby Players’ Association, relegation will remain despite talk of ringfencing the elite. The only possible reprieve for the team finishing bottom will be if the Championship winners do not meet the entry criteria.With promoted Bristol winning two of their first four matches and Worcester, the pre-season relegation favourites, triumphant at Leicester having been pipped by a point by Wasps in the opening round, the comfort blanket of a team detached from the rest from early in the campaign has been snatched away. The bottom three clubs going into the latest round of matches were all former champions, Sale, Northampton and Newcastle. Two others, Leicester and Harlequins, were higher up the table, after one victory each in four, because of bonus points. The prospect of a big-name casualty – the last was Northampton in 2007 – is real.“There are no weak teams in the Premiership,” says Ross. “You look at Leicester’s squad and it is full of quality. It is the same with us but it is all about putting in a performance. We have played well in parts in all of our four games but we have not put it together for 80 minutes. We have been falling away and that has to stop.” Leicester Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest The Observer Share via Email Sale … we have a small favour to ask.

first_imgVANCOUVER – Amazon has announced plans to open a new Metro Vancouver shipping warehouse on Tsawwassen First Nation land in Delta, B.C.Amazon spokesperson Lauren Lynch said Thursday that the 41,800-square-metre facility will create more than 700 full-time jobs and is expected to open in time for the Christmas holiday season next year.The facility will be located within Delta iPort, a new industrial park developed by GWL Realty Advisors on behalf of the project’s owner Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan, said a news release from the First Nation.Tsawwassen First Nation and the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan signed a 60-year lease agreement on the nine-hectare parcel in 2017, it said.When deciding on a place, Amazon looks for a few things, in particular, a talented workforce and proximity to customers so they can fulfil their one and two-day shipping promise, Lynch said.“We found that with Tsawwassen First Nation.”This will be Amazon’s third so-called fulfillment centre in B.C., where employees will pick, pack and ship items such as books, toys, small electronics and home goods.She said the centre will serve the rest of the country and all over the world depending on what item is selected.Tsawwassen First Nation Chief Bryce Williams said in a news release that the warehouse is a promising advancement that will continue to unlock the potential of the nation as a key economic driver in Metro Vancouver.In 2007, the nation ratified Canada’s first urban land-claim treaty, more than doubling the size of its reserve and providing members with millions of dollars in benefits that allowed it to develop its land.The tiny, 372-member First Nation reached the agreement after more than 15 years of negotiations, giving it ownership of more than 700 hectares of some of the most fertile agricultural land in Canada.The Tsawwassen First Nation is located on the shores of the Fraser River delta, bordered on one side by the BC Ferries terminal at Tsawwassen and on the other by the Roberts Bank Superport.last_img read more

first_imgHALIFAX — A new report from an ongoing public inquiry into decades of abuse at a Halifax-area orphanage says a fragmented system of care was not equipped to address the needs of children who were vulnerable.Inquiry co-chairwoman Pamela Williams says it’s an idea that has consistently emerged as the inquiry has conducted its work over the last three years.Williams, who is chief judge of the provincial and family courts, says there must be fundamental changes in the way agencies operate to create “stronger trusting relationships” with the community at large.Co-chairman Tony Smith, a former resident of the Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children, says “silos” have to be broken down within a care system that is not designed to address the unique needs of the African Nova Scotian community.A report released by the inquiry in January also pointed to a culture of silence and shame that contributed to the abuse at the home.Friday’s interim report precedes the inquiry’s final report, which is expected in the spring.The restorative inquiry is made up of former residents of the orphanage, community members and the provincial government.Launched in late 2015, it has a mandate to examine the experiences of former residents and systemic discrimination and racism throughout the province.

first_imgI must have visited Kerala more than a dozen times. Each time, I have stayed as a guest of either a luxury resort or in one of the famed Kerala homestay properties. Never did I venture to stay in Kerala’s many luxurious kettuvalams (houseboats) until my childhood friend Jacob Kutty urged me to try one of Kerala’s best backwater destinations – the shimmering Lake Vembanad, which happens to be one of Asia’s largest freshwater lakes. While there is no dearth of luxury hotels and resorts in God’s Own Country, the Kerala houseboat segment has provided a kind of shot-in-the-arm for Kerala Tourism and today, Kerala has carved a niche for itself as one of the world’s premier backwater cruise destinations, welcoming the discerning world traveller in a most unique way. Also Read – Oman – Beauty with an addressI hopped on an early morning flight from Kolkata to Chennai and from Chennai to Cochin. Around 3 pm, I reached Cochin. Jacob was there to receive me and we reached the magnificently appointed Kumarakom Lake Resort. The unprejudiced eye of the architect echoes in every nook and corner of the resort. Here, at the Kumarakom Lake Resort, the virtually impossible seems graceful and easy. Be it the ethnically designed Heritage Villas, Lake Villas or the marvellously luxurious Presidential Suites, the resort is a supreme adjustment to opportunity and local conditions. All attention has been concentrated on creating art, like one beautiful picture. Also Read – CANADA: A traveller’s delightI was told by the resident naturalist that the Vembanad Wetland system has been integrated into the list of wetlands of global importance in terms of wetland conservation and happens to be the largest of the three Ramsar Sites in Kerala. Vembanad Lake today has become a major tourist destination due largely to its ethereal and picturesque setting. As we ventured towards the impeccably conceived Kumarakom Tourist Village, which happens to be the most popular site on the shores of the shimmering lake, a sense of fulfilment engulfed me. For the benefit of travellers, the village offers a bewildering array of recreational pursuits like luxurious boat cruises, yoga & meditation, the famed Kerala Ayurvedic massage therapies, fishing to name just a few. In fact, the ingenuity of Keralites is admirable – from thoughtfully prepared itineraries to an amazing array of holiday experiences like tracing family history, eco-friendly initiatives and a one-of-its-kind cultural experience with the host community to name just a few. They have compelled the new-age traveller to not only embrace the backwater holiday but also herald the beginning of ‘Responsible Tourism’ in this gem of a tourist state. Being a travel writer, it was most refreshing to absorb the sheer enthusiasm of the support staff at the resort who would go that extra mile just to see you smiling and satisfied. Since I had limited time at my disposal, I preferred to remain within the resort premises to explore every nook and corner of this Eden on Earth. It was only in the evenings, with the red molten ball setting on the distant lake horizon, that I would venture to the impeccably designed luxurious houseboat of the resort, embark on a peaceful 1-1.5 hour night cruise, indulge on a few sips of my favoured tipple, have a sumptuous dinner on board and retire for the night in the king-size bed onboard the houseboat. To explore the nocturnal joys of the backwaters, the concept of ‘Backwaters by Night’ is becoming a rage in Kerala; and I must admit that the joy of viewing nocturnal creatures is thrilling. There was just enough ambient light, courtesy the moon, and pretty soon things got interesting. The expert boatman knew the backwaters by the tip of his fingers and he would often halt at the right places, by the edges of the lake. All sorts of nocturnal creatures: frogs and snakes, fish, large aquatic insects and other weird and wonderful things could be seen prowling in the shallows, right next to the shore. If it is spring or summer, a nocturnal symphony of frogs may be on display. After indulging and being thoroughly pampered on the kettuvallam (houseboat), I can vouch that it is one thing to be pampered in a super-deluxe hotel but quite another to spend time on the banks of Kerala! From the splendid luxurious isolation of Kumarakom Lake Resort, it was now time to appreciate yet another niche backwater holiday in God’s Own Country. We proceeded to the west of Kumarakom and soon figured out the gorgeously anchored Park Apsara, which has provided a new dimension to backwater holidays in Kerala – a touch of boutique hotel experience along with a harmonious blend of the famed European yachting spirit; a spirit of inquiry in nature’s lap, a spirit of discovery and bliss. The sophisticated Park Apsara is a pioneer project of India’s one and only 5-star boutique hotel chain – The Park Hotels. This luxurious cruiser is innovatively built on two levels by the renowned Dubai-based CDB Yacht Design. With eight elegantly designed rooms, an exclusive gallery, saloon and dining area, a sundeck and a fabulous seating area that offers breathtaking vistas of the ethereal backwaters of Kerala, one couldn’t have asked for more. The interiors are sophisticated and ooze luxury. I was particularly impressed with the harmonious décor and quality of food served in the lakeside restaurant that offers some of the most amazing culinary delights from Kerala along with a bewildering array of gastronomic delights from the world over. Every evening, to keep guests entertained, the cruise staff organises cultural shows on the vessel’s deck (vallom) that reverberate with Kerala’s rich heritage and culture. On the penultimate day of my stay, after lunch, which consisted of the quintessential Chettinad cuisine, cooked to perfection by the resident chef, I ventured to an adjoining hamlet; quaint as it was, would you believe, gorgeously dressed womenfolk who were busy preparing for Onam that was just a week away, came out with all guns blazing – singing local Kerala hymns and folk songs as rehearsal that sounded incredibly melodious. The manner in which the quality of life of the rural folks has improved alongside the preservation of nature and cultural heritage is impressive. Here in God’s Own Country, the slow-moving carts still ply on village roads, thatched hutments are in existence, joyful village theatres are active, cows and buffaloes are still being used in tilling the soil and popular folklore remains alive. Add to it the characteristic features of a sustainable backwater holiday option and you have all the makings of an Eden on Earth. The entire experience reminds me of Rishi Aurobindo’s immortal poem: When you and I, we played together, Who my playmate was I did not know. Without a fear, without a shame, Life in quiet ease did flow…last_img read more

TORONTO — A class action lawsuit has been filed against PayPal Canada on behalf of an Ontario man alleging that the online payments company charges Canadians hidden currency conversion fees, violating its user agreement.Court documents filed to the Ontario Superior Court on Nov. 24 on behalf of Leonid Kaplan state that when PayPal Canada account holders wish to withdraw foreign currency from their accounts, the company unilaterally and automatically converts those funds to Canadian dollars.The statement of claim says the conversions are not authorized by contract or otherwise and that PayPal Canada charges account holders an undisclosed fee to convert foreign currency on withdrawal as well as a percentage fee added to the exchange rate charged.Toronto law firm Paliare Roland Rosenberg Rothstein LLP is representing Kaplin, who will bring a motion to the court seeking certification of the action as a class proceeding.None of the allegations have been proven.PayPal Canada did not immediately respond to requests for comments. read more

The Ohio State men’s soccer team headed to Dayton this weekend to take part in a two game tournament.The Buckeyes faced off against Marshall on Friday, and Milwaukee on Sunday, losing both contests by a score of 1-0.As has been the story throughout the early part of this season, the Buckeye offense created chances for itself in the form of corner kicks and shots on goal, but were unable to get on the board.The Buckeyes nearly took the lead in the 16th minute against Milwaukee, but sophomore midfielder Mitch Bergman’s goal was called back due to an offsides call.The Ohio State defense, despite sporting a goal differential of minus two, held strong against both Marshall and Milwaukee attacks.Marshall scored in the second minute to get off to a quick start on Friday evening, but the Buckeyes rallied to battle evenly with the Thundering Herd, though ultimately unable to find an equalizer.In goal, redshirt junior goalkeeper Parker Siegfried played well, making multiple impressive saves throughout the weekend to keep his team in the match.The Buckeyes will play once again on Friday when they take on South Florida at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more

Potato farmers are being forced to trial an ‘expensive’ new irrigation system because water levels are so low that a severe shortage of the vegetable has been predicted.A lack of rainfall last year and so far this year means that irrigation prospects across the country are low, meaning that new measures are having to be put in place in order to ensure at least some potatoes grow.The latest information for the Environment Agency shows the chips are down for potato growers; river flows are below normal for this time of year, with irrigation prospects declared “moderate to poor” for many areas.Prospects for East Anglia, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire are described as “poor”, while the situation in Yorkshire and the East Midlands is “moderate”.A dry winter and a summer drought last year put increased pressure on water supplies, and there has not since been enough rain to counteract this.The situation for potatoes could be even graver than it was last year, when restaurants including fast-food outlet Leon were forced to replace potato products with imported sweet potatoes.A spokesperson from ADHB potatoes said that trials of drip irrigation, a new way to enrich the soil with water, are taking place to safeguard the soil against drought.He explained: “The growers are making contingency plans.”We have a network of strategic farms across the country and we are running irrigation demonstrations.”One of the new and less used and more precise is called drip irrigation where you run thin pipes along your potato ridges and the water gradually drips into the ridges. This is rather than spraying.”We are running these trials across the country and growers are always considering the best ways to irrigate.”Less water is used and it’s more precise but it is more expensive.” Jerry Knox of the Cranfield Water Science Institute.told Farmers Weekly that water restrictions could be imposed sooner this year than last.He added: “We have started 2019 in overdraft. The position has changed since the first irrigation prospects were issued in March, as there has been very little rain for the past six weeks or so.”What took place in 2018 was a wake-up call for farmers and the supply chain. There are challenges from changes in rainfall patterns and from abstraction reform, which has removed some of the previous leeway that existed.”For some businesses, there is an urgent need to critically reappraise what they can feasibly grow against what area they can reliably irrigate from their existing licenced resources”.

first_imgEnvironment and Energy Minister Giorgos Stathakis, his alternate Sokratis Famellos and Interior Minister Panos Skourletis heralded a government plan to initiate the demolition of properties that have been illegally built on forestland and coastal areas.This decision comes as a response to the backlash the national and local government received following the destructive Mati fires.“The demolition will be a matter of days or weeks,” Mr Stathakis said announcing that the government will have a list of the 100 first properties to be demolished by early next week.The plan will include knocking down close to 2,500 reportedly illegal buildings on forestland and another 700 on the coastline.“In all these cases, the properties have been declared illegal by Greek courts. However, the owners have the right to appeal to the Council of State against the move within 15 days of receiving notices regarding the impending demolition,” he noted in a joint press conference.Mr Famelos added that municipal authorities are not free of responsibility and that they should be held accountable.“The land, which [Mati] had been built on, is officially designated as a coastal area and therefore any construction is illegal,” he said.Meanwhile, a legislative amendment submitted to Parliament yesterday stipulated the financial relief that will go toward victims of the wildfires, Kathimerini reports.Co-signed by Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos, each damaged home owner will receive 5,900 euros for repairs and victims will be granted 4,400 euros for permanent physical injury.  Each disabled beneficiary or those with large families are to receive another 600 euros on top of that.Finally, Mr Skourletis promised that the government would soon unveil “a plan for the radical overhaul and re-planning of civil protection”, explaining that area fell within the remit of Alternate Citizens’ Protection Minister Nikos Toskas.

Speaking at a JIS ‘Think Tank’, on December 8, Executive Director at the SDC, Dr. Dwayne Vernon, said the SDC is using its platform of community involvement as the driving force to encourage community businesses for economic development and to create employment.He said that the LEDSP, an initiative of the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development, was launched in May 2015 to formalise community businesses, and grow entrepreneurship in communities. Dr. Vernon noted that of the 839 persons currently employed, 232 are full time, 408 part time, 199 seasonal and others assist, based on the need. “Currently, there are 138 active projects happening in different communities and these Local Economic Initiatives (LEIs) have a capital layout of $530 million,” he pointed out.He informed that 32 per cent of these community businesses are from the agro-processing industry, adding that there is a heavy use of agricultural produce and raw materials from these produce to make secondary products, such as pastries, sauces, jams, pickles, chocolate and other confectioneries, juices and wines. Another 29 per cent of the community businesses are poultry, and the remaining are manufacturing, art and craft, fashion and community tourism.Dr. Vernon said if all communities take the Local Government and community-based approach to economic growth, such as the LEI, this will improve employment in the country.He called on members of the public to embrace the Local Government Reform, which is a tool that will help them to participate in the decision-making and economic growth at the community and parish levels.

first_imgA Word Thrice Uttered: Stories on Life’s Realities is a collection of reality inspired short stories. The compilation published by ‘Niyogi books’ was launched at India International Centre.Organized on December 5, the book launch coincided with the death anniversary of Asrarul- Haq Majaz, noted Urdu poet.Every short story in the book by Parveen Talha, author, portrays diverse realities of life through the protagonists – children, women, men, animals and even some supernatural beings. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfReaders meet fascinating women who confront irresponsible and evil men. But nothing stops these women from taking the first step for a leap into liberation and self-empowerment.The chief guest for the event was Muzaffar Ali, Filmmaker, Fashion Designer and Activist. Among the other esteemed guests, Professor Nalini Jain, Academic and Author, Sadia Dehlvi, Columnist, Writer and Activist and Saif Mahmood, Advocate, Supreme Court of India, marked their presence. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveAt the launch, Muzaffar Ali shared his viewpoints on the book. He opined that Parveen’s ability “to sense the human (and that of animals as well) predicament in the most sensitive manner and then to express these dialectics in a cinematic way are her greatest strengths. The fact that she was from Lucknow said a lot about that place too”. On the other hand Saif Mahmood, who is also the co-author of Tahir Mahmood’s magnum opus ‘Muslim Law in India and Abroad’ said, “Not many know that the practice of ‘triple talaq’, banned by the SC recently, was not just unconstitutional but also un-Islamic. Prevalent only among India’s Muslim community, who follow the Hanafi Islamic school of law, this practice is not recognized anywhere else in the Muslim world. In fact, Islamic law is a progressive law, and only one of its kind, which seeks no evidence for divorce. Speaking further, he said, “The beautiful tehzeeb of Lucknawi culture, which sparkles in her writing, is the most stunning quality of her craft.” David Syiemlieh, Chairman UPSC, expressing his opinion said, “The small, insignificant and countless problems that people go through every day are presented evocatively”. Parveen Talha, who belongs to an old family of Awadh, settled in Lucknow after her retirement. She is involved with social service which includes working for animal rights. Veteran journalist Sadia Dehlvi, who engaged Parveen Talha in a conversation around the book along with Nalini Jain, spoke about Talha’s love for animals in real life and the unparalleled beauty with which she expressed every nuance of life in her book. Lastly, Trisha De Niyogi urged the readers to treat this book as a work of fiction. “Though the title points out to the burning issue of Triple Talaq and touches upon various social concerns like women empowerment, children psychology, Ganga Jumni tehzeeb, and others. Our concern for live issues should not detract the merit of the book as a creative writing.”last_img read more

Sample Survey (NSS) and the National Nutrition Monitoring Bureau surveys document declining caloric consumption among the Indian population However as Jean Dreze and Angus Deaton note most of this decline is observed among upper-income groups particularly in rural areas These groups are increasingly moving away from manual labour and hence may need fewer calories But malnutrition is not limited to the poor The National Family Health Survey shows that although 57 per cent of the children in the households with the lowest levels of wealth are underweight even among the top 40 per cent of households about 30 per cent of the children are underweight So it is not simply a question of income or access to food grains but rather of the composition of food and dietary diversity The India Human Development Survey (IHDS) organised by the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) and the University of Maryland documents that when households consume a diet of cereals coarse grains pulses milk vegetable fruits and fat the percentage of children who are underweight goes down by about 5 percentage points even when compared to other children from families similar in socio-economic background but with lower dietary diversity Second the NFSA does not take into account the unanticipated effects of the expansion of the public distribution system (PDS) which may well result in a reduction in nutritional quality due to its emphasis on cereals While the proportion of families obtaining food from ration shops has grown from 25 per cent to over 50 per cent between 2004-05 and 2011-12 careful analysis of IHDS data matching households at the same income level using the PDS and not using the PDS shows that PDS use is associated with greater consumption of cereals but lower consumption of fruit and milk When caloric needs can be met with cheap cereals households may not choose to spend money on a diverse food basket This concern is validated by an excellent analysis of NSS data by Professor Raghav Gaiha and colleagues in which they document declining dietary diversity between 1993 and 2009 Third the NFSA relies on existing programmes like the PDS and the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) whose operation is fraught with inefficiencies and leakages While much has been written about the leakages in the PDS little attention has been directed to the ICDS programme By an order of the Supreme Court issued in 2006 this programme was expanded to cover all children instead of just the poor The IHDS records that only 23 per cent children in 2004-05 received any ICDS benefits compared to 46 per cent in 2011-12 but most of the benefits are limited to immunisation Among the IHDS children under the age of five only 12 per cent received any food from the ICDS in the month prior to the survey As many speakers at a recent conference organised by the NCAER IDS Sussex and IDRC Canada noted the ICDS has tremendous potential for reducing malnutrition and has been quite successful in some areas However without substantial reorganisation its scope will remain limited Fourth the potential agricultural ramifications of the expansion of government procurement of vast quantities of cereals have received little attention in this discussion and it is assumed that the current stocks will be sufficient to meet these needs But the case of millets offers little reason for this optimism Although it is a welcome departure for the NFSA to include millets in the PDS little attention is directed towards the challenges of production bottlenecks and storage for millets Thus at the moment it is unlikely that millets can be a major component of food supplied under the NFSA Fifth the NFSA contains no mechanisms for measuring success in reducing malnutrition Social audits focus on process and not outcomes and do not replace standardised data on malnutrition and food intake It is amazing that in spite of the staggering incremental costs of the NFSA estimated by Prachi Mishra of the International Monetary Fund at between Rs 44000 and Rs 77000 crore per annum we really have no plans for monitoring its outcome in terms of nutrition statistics Government data collection on malnutrition is sporadic at best; the last nationwide large survey was done in 2005-06 As of now there is no nationwide data available If transparent data collection took place predictably every two years immediate course correction could be undertaken These observations suggest that if we are serious about eliminating undernutrition we must focus on smarter policy design effective implementation and increased monitoring and accountability The BJP manifesto calls for addressing malnutrition in mission mode; disappointing statistics from the District Level Health Survey suggest a need for urgent action [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsChandigarh | Published: September 2 2017 6:13 am Top News A HEAD

up a ‘Sainik colony’ for serving and retired servicemen in the Valley even as the state government sent a fresh reminder to deputy commissioners of Srinagar and Budgam This has raked up a fresh controversy in the state Dr Mehboob Beg the chief spokesperson of PDP told Firstpost on Friday that his party would stick to its earlier stand of not allowing Sanik colony in the Valley which would allow the non-state soldiers who have served in Kashmir and their families to settle in the Valley Representational image PTI Beg said allowing a Sainik colony in Srinagar for the non-state subjects would be a clear violation of the state’s Constitution “Only yesterday CM Mehbooba Mufti told people in Anantnag that when we swear by the Constitution of the state we also respect and work for strengthening the Indian Constitution Respecting Indian Constitution also means opposing any move to settle any non-state subject trooper or ex-servicemen in Jammu and Kashmir That would be a clear violation of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir (under Article 370 of Indian Constitution” Beg told Firstpost The Rajya Sainik Board (RSB) in 2012 had floated a proposal of setting up a residential cluster for serving and ex-servicemen in one of its meetings Governor N N Vohra who heads the board approved the proposal and when the state came under his rule he expedited the process of setting up of the ‘Sainik colony’ early this year The state’s home department headed by the late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed last year had identified a plot of 173 kanals near Humhama for the ‘Sainik Colony’ in Humhama area on the outskirts of Srinagar “My party (PDP) stands clear on this issue any move by anyone to settle the non-resident soldiers even if they have served here for 26 years would be opposed by us I don’t want to comment on the Governor’s decision and why he wanted to expedited the matter when he ruled the state” Beg added The move to settle the soldiers in Kashmir was vehemently opposed by the National Conference and Hurriyat leaders But a senior official in the state home department said on Friday that the Government of India was committed to building the cluster of colonies for the soldiers who has served in the state during the worst years of insurgency He however did not specify if it was meant for state or non-state subjects “The Centre is serious about this proposal The land is a state subject that is the reason there has been a delay It won’t be a challenge to the state’s special statues because this would be undertaken under a lease agreement” the officer who did not wish to be named told Firstpost According to the proposal cleared by Governor Vohra a commissioned officer would be allotted 11 marlas of land a junior commissioned officer 8 marlas and a soldier of the subordinate rank 5 marlas of land Initially almost 40 retired Kashmiri Pandit officers who had served in the state and outside along with 300 soldiers had applied for the plots BJP Parliamentarian and RSS man Tarun Vijay had submitted a proposal to the Narendra Modi-led government demanding settlement rights for soldiers in the Valley who have served a minimum of three years Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had said the “matter had been forwarded” to the state government since land was a state subject Now the Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP-BJP government has sent a fresh reminder to the deputy commissioners seeking their response at the earliest Sources said that almost 7000 serving and retired soldiers have applied for the plots in the colony BJP spokesperson Khalid Jehangir told Firstpost that his party’s stand is clear —the colony should be developed for the soldiers and their families “There is a misunderstanding that this colony is meant for soldiers from outside the state but it is not In fact the state government should expedite the matter and allow the board to come up with the colony soon” said Jehangir On 15 April 2016 in a meeting in Raj Bhavan Jammu secretary of the board Brig RS Langeh according to sources had apprised the members that the number of soldiers —both serving and retired — who have applied for the plots have increased and thus the land requirement should be increased to 350 kanals Subsequently a fresh proposal was sent to the state government headed by Sayeed for the allotment of 350 kanals of state land “After obtaining

the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Ravinder Kaur Copenhagen | Updated: April 28 2015 10:26 am Television cameras recorded images of two Sikh groups armed with largely blunt ceremonial swords attacking each other Related News The 30th anniversary of Operation Blue Star on June 6 was marked by a rather unexpected turn of events Television cameras recorded images of two Sikh groups armed with largely blunt ceremonial swords attacking each other The disagreement we were told stemmed from the old tensions around the demand for a Sikh homeland Khalistan In fact in the run up to the anniversary the idea of Khalistan had cropped up frequently as journalists reported a growing nostalgia for Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and his favoured cause One reporter even put forward this question: did the images of warring factions represent the troubled memories of Operation Blue Star or the more worrisome revival of Khalistan The use of the word “nostalgia” to describe the events unfolding in Punjab throws light on how 1984 and its aftermath are often read To be nostalgic about something whether it is a person a place or an event is to first presume its (usually pleasant) existence in the past Yet neither the idea of Khalistan nor Bhindranwale achieved the kind of mass acceptance that is implied in the current spell of nostalgia If Bhindranwale had followers among Sikhs he had as many detractors and opponents in the very same community Despite the popularity of audio-cassettes filled with Bhindranwale’s fiery speeches Khalistan was broadly speaking a non-starter especially among the urban classes It is difficult to be nostalgic about an idea that was met with scepticism from the very beginning The popularity of Bhindranwale-themed memorabilia is offered up as evidence for this nostalgia — shops selling car stickers T-shirts photographs and other knick knacks do brisk business in the bazars around the Golden Temple This we are told is a warning sign Those who put forward this theory might never have seen mass-produced T-shirts printed with the profile of Che Guevara or noticed how quickly Mao Zedong’s handbook on revolution became an instant bestseller once it was repackaged and introduced by Slavoj Zizek the Elvis Presley of cultural theory If Guevara and Mao in their repackaged forms are warning signs they only warn of how commodification can produce banal cultural symbols The popularity of Guevara T-shirts has not to the best of our knowledge caused a political revolution anywhere Perhaps Bhindranwale in his quick-selling profitable commodified form is flourishing more than he ever did when alive for two reasons One the blood and gore the threats and fears connected to his persona are gone He can now exist exactly as his consumers want him to Two a community ravaged by drug addiction and by the corruption of the ruling elite is desperately looking for heroic figures The current pantheon of leaders in Punjab do not inspire any hope for the future A printed T-shirt fills this vacuum without disrupting the socio-political landscape I would suggest that it is not the cultural economy of Bhindranwale products that is central here The collective melancholia that is yet to find its redress is It is telling that despite a flurry of writing in the recent past the two decades of militancy in Punjab remain enveloped in layers of silence The books and articles written on this period tend to be first-hand accounts of soldiers journalists police officers lawyers and the odd writer Reading this literature one gets the impression that defence experts are done discussing the strategic tactics and manoeuvres that could have produced a better military result No doubt this is a valuable body of archives that helps us gain an insight into the events Yet it tells us very little about the men and women who were caught up in the crossfire of those who were neither militants nor state officials Nor were they in any influential capacity that allowed them to circumvent curfews blockades and threats that arranged one’s everyday life The ordinary mass of people both Sikhs and Hindus was usually at the receiving end of militant fire as well as the strategies of the men in uniform A community that has been intent on “moving on” and “getting over it” has not completely succeeded in doing so How do you ever “get over” or stop mourning the loss of a loved one who disappeared or was shot by the police or got separated and killed by militants on a bus journey It is this melancholia that needs to be addressed Unheard voices need to be brought into the public domain The point here is not just to add voices as historians have lately been doing but to create a ground for trust where citizens can expect justice from the state As for those worried about the nostalgic revival of Khalistan one only needs to revert to the television footage of two warring factions attacking each other with blunt-edged swords If there ever was an argument against Khalistan it was vividly depicted here for everyone to see The writer is associate professor at the University of
