The former Harrods owner is thought to be mulling an improved offer before the deal closes in the summer.If the bid is ratified by shareholders, Peel will pay 200p a share for the 70 per cent of the firm it does not already own, an increase of £8m on its previous offer. It represents a premium of 37.6 per cent to the average closing price for the three months prior to the bid.Pinewood chairman Michael Grade, who has faced calls for his resignation from major shareholder Crystal Amber, said: “The directors have recommended this offer to shareholders as it delivers certainty at an attractive premium.“This stable time in a volatile industry offers shareholders an opportune moment to realise value. “Peel has been a most supportive shareholder, committed to our strategy and vision for the group.”Pinewood was advised by JP Morgan and BDO.John Whittaker, chairman of the Peel Group, said: “The acquisition represents an attractive proposition for the shareholders of Pinewood. “Peel represents a long-term strategic partner for Pinewood in continuing to grow and develop the business.” Al Fayed declined to comment on the recommendation yesterday.The studios last month revealed a plan to invest millions over the next few years to help finance small British films. It says it will set aside money for productions with a budget of around £2-3m. whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Kevin Godbold | Monday, 4th May, 2020 Share prices may have bounced back from their coronavirus lows in many cases, but I think the best of the stock market recovery is still to come.As the lockdowns around the world ease, businesses will recover and share prices will likely reflect improved trading in the months and years ahead.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…So now could be a good time to focus on which stocks to buy. We have more information to go on than we did before because many firms have been updating the market about how trading has been going through the crisis. And the directors of companies have been setting out their expectations for the future.Cheaper stocksIn my quest to make a million from the stock market recovery, I’d first look for cheaper shares. The uncertainty of the crisis and lower short-term profits caused many shares to plummet. And lower share prices can mean better value.However, a lower share price doesn’t guarantee better value, but it’s a good start in your search. Because we often find better value when a short-term hit to business causes a temporary setback. So, your research now could aim to find companies with recovery potential.Of course, not all businesses will survive the effects of this crisis. So you first need to identify those that have the potential to survive and thrive after the crisis abates.High-quality businessesBusinesses have many different characteristics and they’re not the same as each other. Many have low-quality operations characterised by small profit margins and intermittent earnings. Others are highly cyclical and look great one minute and dire the next. Some companies have huge debts and others operate in cutthroat sectors with undifferentiated offerings.However, to ride the stock market recovery, I’d look for the best and highest quality underlying businesses I can find. And they’ll likely enjoy a strong trading niche and a well-defended economic moat. You’ll recognise such stock market stars because they’ll sport decent quality metrics, such as a high return against assets and capital employed. They often have higher profit margins and there’s usually a strong financial and trading record featuring robust and rising cash inflow.A long-term perspectiveTo make a million from the stock market recovery, I’d aim to hold on to my quality shares for the long haul. If you do that, the underlying business has a chance to grow and the operational progress could reflect in shareholder returns over the years ahead.As well as a rising share price, you’ll probably see ever greater income from the shareholder dividend. Indeed, there was quick money to be made from the recent stock market rebound if you chose your shares carefully. But we think long term at The Motley Fool. And I reckon we now have a shot at making a million from the enduring stock market recovery that could follow.center_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Moos House, designed by architect  Thomas Tampold of Tampold Architects and Yorkville Design Centre, located Just shy of North York. As Martha Uniacke Breen, of National Post puts it, “It makes sense that this iconoclastic Modernist mid-town house should have decidedly artistic air about it, with its distinctive mosaic art panel and flowing, sculptural shape.”.Save this picture!© Larry ArnalPreviously a bungalow whose most distinctive feature was its curved corner on the west side, now a modernist-contemporary work of art. The Moos couple were fond of this detail and that was our starting point. Their reverence for such a detail provided us with contemporary inspiration which flows throughout the design .Save this picture!© Larry ArnalThe face is clad in deep-grey steel panelling that sits off-centre and encapsulates the second floor, while the main floor is clad Japanese white porcelain tile. The integrity of the curved corner is in full-use with a wraparound window and there’s a similar, squared-off window on the second floor.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe front entrance is set to the side and complimented by a beautiful, digitised mosaic by the architects daughter, Evi Tampold. The entrance is overhung by the second floor, which extends off the side of the house and features bright lights and a red accent on the underside.Save this picture!© Larry ArnalAt the rear of the home, lines become even more eccentric. A broad, ship-like central promontory juts into the deck, filling the interior with light and  topped by a private deck, leading from the upper-story master bedroom. This was a response to another idea from the Moos couple: a kitchen shaped like an eye, with a pair of parabolic counters that face each other in the centre of the room(one topped in white composite, the other in deep-green granite). The back deck is a multi-level decking design, made out of premium Thermory-Weston wood from Estonia.Save this picture!© Larry ArnalImplementing green-space was necessary to contrast and compliment the sombre tones of the exterior front and back of the house. Deep- purples and greens, accented with stones in the front; natural green grass, a leafy garden and a tree build into the deck in the back.Save this picture!© Larry ArnalSave this picture!2nd Floor PlanSave this picture!© Larry ArnalThe interior was treated as an extension of the exterior, flowing with it’s modernist, contemporary design. A notable example of this is the precision joinery of the staircase treads, which curve around the corner as they rise and form a sculpture of their own. “It was inspired by a staircase designed by Ozenfant, who was a contemporary of Corbusier.”- Thomas TampoldPleasing  visuals like this make it easy to overlook the practicalities of the design. Chrome levels for door, a multitude of premium Downsview Kitchens cabinets, an L-shaped pantry just off the kitchen, an in-home elevator, storage built into the walls of the master suite, concealing a dressing area and a roomy tub in the heavily glass-partitioned bathroom are just some of the practical, yet luxurious features of the home.

first_imgThe shooting of Republican politicians practicing baseball on a ball field in Alexandria, Va., was an anomaly — that is, something that deviates from what is standard, normal or expected.And what unacknowledged crimes have become standard, normal and expected? Racist cops shooting or choking unarmed people of color and getting away with it. Unknown bigots killing trans women of color and getting away with it.Especially since the election campaign and Electoral College victory of president #45, hate crimes perpetrated against Muslims, often against immigrants mistaken for Muslims such as Sikhs and other people from South Asia, have occurred with regularity. Attacks by vigilante militias against people near the southern U.S. border whom the racists believe are from Mexico or Central America have become standard crimes.These attacks often lead to an immediate murder. They have been taking place at the same time that another assault, more gradual but also murderous, is going on. Led by the president and the Republican Party, this assault is on the working class, especially the poorest workers, which in the United States all too often but not always means people of color.Then, in Alexandria, Va., on June 15, there was an anomaly. The targets of the shooting were reactionary Republicans. If the reports in the corporate media are accurate, the person carrying out the shooting felt threatened by the Republicans’ attacks on the poor. Police shot and killed him on the spot.When it comes to wars abroad, both Democrats and Republicans support U.S. military adventures and support U.S. imperialism in general. Those who understand the role of imperialism know that all these politicians are ready to kill millions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and elsewhere, and maybe some thousands of U.S. soldiers, too.Back in the U.S., a prime example of the attack on the poor is the Republican attempt to eliminate whatever was progressive about the Affordable Care Act. This assault threatens to remove the more than 20 million people from health insurance that the ACA provided.It is not surprising that a person dealing with a serious but treatable illness could believe that the Republicans are out to kill them and that the Democrats are either complicit or at best are doing nothing to stop their death.Taking a step back and looking at it from an objective, Marxist viewpoint, it becomes clear that the Alexandria action arises out of the current climate of growing reactionary terror in the streets, aided and abetted by the cops and the corporate flunkies of both parties in Washington.This climate is exacerbated by frustration when the means of organized resistance are either repressed or seem inadequate to stop the right-wing assault.The lesson then is that revolutionaries need to get better organized, to get more militant, to find the means of mass resistance and self-defense that will make it impossible for the ruling class to continue its deadly assault on the masses. Mass action, combined with revolutionary optimism that a future of justice for the workers and oppressed can be achieved through the struggle for socialism, will be a potent antidote to the killings, cutbacks and contempt for the people shown by the capitalist ruling class and its minions.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgAug. 31 meeting at Roxbury bus yard in Boston celebrates Takiyah Thompson, second from right.By Steve GillisFinancial Secretary, USW Local 8751BostonMembers of United Steelworkers Local 8751, the Boston school bus drivers’ union, gave a raucous, pre-school, fightback orientation to the Veolia/Transdev corporation at the Roxbury bus yard on Aug. 31, when Takiyah “Tear ‘Em Down” Thompson from Durham, N.C., showed up to a sheroe’s welcome.Drivers had heard that Thompson — the North Carolina Central University student and Workers World Party leader who, on Aug. 14, climbed a ladder to topple a mass produced, Jim-Crow-era Confederate statue — would be in town, and conspired to welcome her right. When she came to the floor, the crowd erupted in a celebratory dance to Grievance Chair Garry Murchison’s blasting of the song “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now!”Many drivers who grew up in Southern states knew Thompson’s name before she arrived, as they had been closely following the action, news of which has swept the country. Some remarked about how as children they had witnessed these Ku Klux Klan propaganda tools go up in their hometowns during the Civil Rights Movement, and they had always wanted to tear them down.Many drivers who grew up in Haiti had also participated in similar actions, tearing down symbols of the brutal French slavocracy and U.S. dictatorship and replacing them with liberation fighters like Toussaint L’Ouverture, Jean-Jacques Dessalines and John Brown. Everybody wanted their picture taken with Thompson.Angie Cardosa, a union stalwart and pastry chef extraordinaire, presented Thompson with a red-velvet sheet cake smothered in glorious cream cheese frosting on which she had inscribed, “Thank You Takiyah Thompson AKA Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Dr. Betty Shabazz, Monica Moorehead, Coretta Scott King, Local 8751.” Drivers presented Thompson with Local 8751 honor placards that read, “Build Monuments to Freedom Fighters! Tear Down White Supremacy!” and “Drop the Charges on the Durham, N.C., Freedom Fighters!”As part of the national days of action Sept. 11 through Sept. 17, USW Local 8751 will be calling the witch-hunting Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews off the hook to demand he drop the bogus charges; propagating resolutions in the labor movement; and sending material aid for our sheroes’ and heroes’ legal defense.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgLive Oak Reading Series opens students’ minds to new ways of writing printTrump and Clinton: Where are the campaign signs? from TCU Student Media on Vimeo.In the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election, many in the TCU area have noticed something different about citizen participation in this election cycle.Throughout campaign history, voters have typically shown their support by publicly displaying which candidate they are backing. In the 2012 presidential race, Obama-Biden and Romney-Ryan logos seemed to be everywhere.Images courtesy of CNN Politics. + posts ReddIt ReddIt Previous articleStudy abroad office plans new opportunityNext articleVietnamese Student Association hosts “Born with Horn” event Hannah Gibson RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history TCU students take part in adopting horned frogs Facebook Hannah Gibson Hannah Gibson Hannah Gibson TCU students give a voice to the voiceless Linkedincenter_img Hannah Gibson World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook TCU alumnus competes in renowned fishing tournament However, TCU student and Tarrant County GOP Hispanic Engagement Field Director Jacob Velasquez said this election season has broken the trend of propaganda posters.He said there are hardly any yard signs or bumper stickers around, at least in the neighborhoods surrounding the university.“It’s just an interesting phenomenon that’s going on,” Velasquez said. “A number of people on both sides are just sort of disinterested in the election cycle.”As an employee at the Tarrant County GOP Headquarters, Velasquez said people have refrained from purchasing yard signs for fear of vandalism or judgement.“People have been stealing signs and vandalizing signs. I’ve gone into different neighborhoods before where people say they don’t want to express their political views because they could feel retaliation from their neighbors,” Velasquez said.Other reasons for this phenomenon are plenty and varied, according to TCU political science professor Dr. Ralph Carter.Aside from vandalism, Carter said voters are not using candidate propaganda because they simply are not interested in either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.“It’s strange but it’s a sign of how polar things have gotten. I think Americans would agree we have a choice of two flawed candidates,” Carter said. “As a result of that, I think the enthusiasm level in the campaign has been muted by what it normally is.”In an interview below, Velasquez said the most discouraging part is the lack of citizen participation across the board, including voting.Early voting in Texas took place Oct. 24 through Nov. 4.Americans will still have the chance to vote on Election Day, Tuesday Nov. 8, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. To find a convenient voting location, visit Vote Texas.Fort Worth citizens participated in early voting in the Brown-Lupton University Union at TCU.

first_imgThe Pashtun tribal areas adjoining Afghanistan are a mystery for the outside world. Divided into seven districts – Khyber, Kurram, Orakzai, Mohmand, Bajaur, North Waziristan and South Waziristan – this mountainous region has 3.4 million inhabitants.Officially called the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), the region is run by tribal councils and political officers whose job is to implement the policies of the federal government in Islamabad. Koranic laws and a legislative hangover from the British empire called the Frontier Crimes Regulation apply only to the tribal population. All this is orchestrated by tribal chiefs called maliks.Many Al Qaeda members found refuge in the tribal areas after the US attacks on Afghanistan’s Tora Bora region in December 2001, and there were clashes between thousands of Taliban fighters and the Pakistani army for several years.Repeated harassment and arrests by the Pakistani army and Taliban fighters have made it very difficult for journalists to work in this region. University academics and journalists are nowadays trying to promote the emergence of local media and to improve the quality of news coverage of the tribal areas.A website solely about the tribal areas, Karwan-e-Qabial was created on the initiative of TUJ president Sailab Mehsud. Its reports are written in Urdu and English by journalists based in the region, one from which the foreign press is banned.

He was released after being questioned by the federal transition government’s security forces.NUSOJ said Adam and Atosh were given their digital video cameras and mobile phones back, and no charges were brought against them. Their long detention was due to their refusal to answer questions. The security forces had suspected them of spying for the Union of Islamic Courts.————-30.10.2006 – One journalist freed, two others arrested in continued harassment by authorities in BaidoaReporters Without Borders welcomes the release of journalist Fahad Mohamed Abukar of Radio Warsan, but condemns the arrest of two other journalists from the same radio station, Abdulkadir Barre Moallim and Nur Barre, as well as brutality against freelance journalist Idle Moallim Omar in Bossasso, Puntland. “The release of Fahad Mohamed Abukar is an inadequate step on the part of the Baidoa authorities since two of his colleagues – Mohammed Adawe Adam and Muktar Mohammed Atosh – are still in custody and two others were arrested,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“We remind the Somali transitional government as well as the authorities in Puntland that brutality and unfair arrests will only alienate the entire press and tarnish their image”.Fahad Mohamed Abukar was freed on 28 October 2006, after having his camera, tape-recorder and mobile phone returned to him, Reporters Without Borders learned from its Somali partner organisation, the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ). On the same day, Idle Moallim Omar, who works for the Swedish-hosted website was brutally beaten by security guards employed by General Adde Muse, President of the self-proclaimed state of Puntland, at the Panorama Hotel in Bossasso. He was taken to hospital for treatment.Police arrested Abdulkadir Barre Moallim and Nur Barre the following day on the orders of Haji Mohamud Barbar, governor of the Bay region in the south of the country before being released early evening. The governor had complained to the director of Radio Warsan. Abdifatah Mohammed Ibrahim, after the radio broadcast news relating to the swearing in of a member of the local council of Bay region.——————————-25.10.2006 – Baidoa-based government urged to release three journalists arrested by its troops Reporters Without Borders today called for the immediate release of three journalists working for privately-owned radio stations who were arrested yesterday near the southern city of Baidoa by militias loyal to the transitional federal government after they filmed evidence of the presence of Ethiopian soldiers on Somali territory.“These journalists were undesired witnesses of the bloody poker game being played by the belligerents in Somalia,” the press freedom organisation said. “In view of the very worrying situation in which our three colleagues now find themselves, we urge the government to respect the press freedom guarantees contained in the federal transition charter it signed.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The public has a right to know the realities of the fighting that is taking place in Somalia. President Abdulahi Yusuf Ahmed must therefore order the release of these journalists, as they were just doing their job in an extremely dangerous situation in which news manipulation is one of the weapons being used.”Fahad Mohammed Abukar of Baidoa-based Warsan Radio, Mohammed Adawe Adam of Mogadishu-based Radio Shabelle and Muktar Mohammed Atosh of Mogadishu-based HornAfrik were arrested yesterday morning in Daynunay, a village 15 km outside Baidoa, where the government has its headquarters. They were coming from Burhakaba, a place about 60 km away where government troops have been fighting militias loyal to the Islamic courts that control Mogadishu. Three people travelling with them were also arrested.They were taken to Baidoa for interrogation at the headquarters of the criminal investigation police. The Reporters Without Borders partner organisation in Somalia, the National Union of Somali Journalists, said they are now being held in the city’s prison.The three journalists were caught in possession of a digital video camera containing footage of the body of an Ethiopian soldier of Somali origin killed in Burhakaba, as well as footage of Ethiopian soldiers in Somalia, a local political source told Reporters Without Borders on condition of anonymity.The transitional government, which is recognised by the international community, has been battling for several months for control of southern Somalia with the Islamic courts, which have proclaimed a jihad against Ethiopia. The Islamic courts, which control Mogadishu and nearly two thirds of the provinces, claim that Ethiopian troops are fighting alongside the government militias. Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has acknowledged sending “about a hundred trainers at the most” to Somalia.

View the full release here: Cap Hill Brands was founded in July 2020 by Kevin Saliba and Jason LeeKeenan, two former Zulily executives who helped grow the business into one of the largest and fastest-growing e-commerce retailers with nearly 6 million active customers. The credit facility from VPC will fund new acquisitions of e-commerce brands that exhibit strong growth and have an established track record. “We’re incredibly grateful to partner with VPC given their deep understanding of the industry and breadth of the market opportunity,” said Kevin Saliba, co-founder and co-CEO of Cap Hill. “This comes at a time when Amazon third-party sellers and digitally native brands more broadly are in need of capital and operational expertise to help grow and scale their businesses, especially given the e-commerce boom throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.” “We could not be more excited to have value-add investors who believe in Cap Hill Brands’ mission,” added Jason LeeKeenan, co-founder and co-CEO of Cap Hill. “VPC’s investment will support our commitment to providing liquidity to brand owners who have lacked access to capital up until now.” “We are proud to partner with Cap Hill Brands, particularly co-founders Kevin and Jason, who have significant experience with consumer brands and e-commerce platforms and have already generated substantial momentum,” said Tom Welch, partner at VPC. “Cap Hill Brands joins a number of companies that are working to consolidate the fragmented third-party seller ecosystem and support small e-commerce businesses, and we look forward to seeing the company’s competitive differentiation play out in the market.” In October 2020, VPC provided a similar financing solution and partnered with Perch, a technology-enabled consumer products company that acquires and operates Amazon FBA businesses at scale. “Partnering with VPC has allowed us to completely focus on growing our business,” said Chris Bell, founder and CEO of Perch. “It is important to us that we work with investors who share our vision and are able to scale with us over time, and we are proud to have found that in VPC.” Victory Park Capital’s Outlook on the E-Commerce Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (eSME) Sector Digital marketplaces are growing at a rapid pace and are accelerating their market share gains over traditional brick-and-mortal retail. By providing better overall shopping experiences, quick door-step delivery options and greater selection of inventory, e-commerce has reshaped retail marketplaces and entrenched itself into consumer preferences. Increased internet saturation, social media tools to identify customers and the introduction of new payment technologies, including buy-now-pay-later financing solutions, have further accelerated the shift towards digital marketplaces. The Amazon third-party seller ecosystem is an attractive area for investment given its expansive ecosystem. According to Marketplace Pulse, there are 1.6 million active third-party sellers transacting across eighteen global marketplaces, generating north of $295 billion of Gross Merchandise Value annually. The global network of third-party sellers is both robust and highly fragmented, with 280,000 merchants generating annual sales over $100,000. The marketplace continues to expand at a rapid pace, with over 1.2 million active third-party sellers joining one of the eighteen Amazon platforms worldwide in 2019. “This ecosystem has become increasingly complex for eSMEs to manage growth, leading to many brand owners having considerable personal wealth tied up in one asset with no clear options for financing or an ultimate liquidity event,” added Don Richman, principal at VPC. “VPC is positioned as a value-add partner to the ecosystem through deep domain expertise, coupled with solution-oriented financing structures.” About Victory Park Capital Victory Park Capital invests in emerging and established businesses across various industries in the U.S. and abroad.

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. What’s with the long, arduous multi-stage recruitment processes that seem to be increasingly common place these days? When chatting to job seekers I find that a 6 stage (or more) recruitment process that may incorporate psychometric testing, multiple technical tests, cultural evaluations, competency based screening (to name a few), is nothing out of the ordinary and I can’t help but wonder if it’s necessary?Has the length, rigorousness or even quirkiness of a company’s recruitment process become a marketing tool to tell the world that what lies beyond this extensive screening must be worth all the work and effort put in?I believe that in this day and age we should be striving to create efficiencies, thus not being on-board with what seems to me to be an in-efficient waste of time. The only thing I believe you can be certain of after a 6-8 stage process is just how keen the candidate is on the position/company given the willingness to stick around for that long. I don’t believe that you will gain any more of an in-sight into their suitability to the position, over a well put together 2 stage interview process where the questioning is intelligent, relevant to the role and type of person you are looking to hire, which may or may not include a specific skills based test. Specific preparation is key!

first_imgWhen the American runner Jesse Owens outdistanced the competition on his way to winning four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Nazi leader Adolph Hitler’s response was to suggest a possible link between Owens’ performance and the fact he was African-American.This led the anthropologist W. Montague Cobb to publish the 1936 article “Race and Runners,” which was intended to dispel the idea that Owens’ winning performance was somehow related to race. Through numerous measures and physical tests, Cobb found no distinct evidence that would attribute Owens’ abilities to his race.Cobb’s study, along with many other examinations and investigations of differences in human physiology — such as noses, hair, sweat glands, ears, and feet, and reactions to many diseases — are examined in “The Nature of Difference: Sciences of Race in the United States from Jefferson to Genomics” by Harvard College Dean Evelynn M. Hammonds. The book examines the many instances throughout history where race played a role in the scientific investigation of human differences.Hammonds discussed her book Friday in Sever Hall before about 50 students. She said her intention in putting the book together was to show that over time, society’s preconceptions of race have played a role in many scientific, medical, and anthropological studies.“When people think about science, they think about it being objective. Therefore, the idea that something like race could be part and parcel of scientific questions is not intuitive for many people because science is supposed to provide unambiguous answers and not leave you with lots of questions,” she said.Hammonds, the Barbara Gutmann Rosenkrantz Professor of the History of Science and professor of African and African American studies, presented her talk as part of Wintersession, the time between terms that allows students who have returned before the start of classes to experience unusual opportunities. A College-led programming initiative, Wintersession offers students a wide range of elective activities, allowing them to pursue artistic or creative passions, explore a career interest, or participate in recreational activities with friends.Hammonds told the students she was surprised that after the Jamaican Olympian Usain Bolt won successive gold medals in 2008 and 2012, questions about what made him excel were raised, similar to the way they were raised about Owens.“All humans have differences. Why is it so hard to leave it at that? Why can’t that answer be the definitive end one about our differences?” she said. “It still surprises me that a fraught, imprecise, historically contingent concept like race is still offered as an explanation for human differences in the 21st century.  When I first read about Jesse Owens, I wasn’t surprised at what happened in 1936. But when I saw sportswriters were asking similar questions about Usain Bolt, I couldn’t believe that people are still asking questions about the relationship between race and athletic performance.”After the talk, the students said the information Hammonds discussed was eye-opening.“This was a really good talk. I thought the different physiological studies of the 1800s was kind of surprising,” said Kimberly Mihayo ’15. “The persistence of the question of race, and why the discussions about race have not changed over time, I also found interesting.”“The Nature of Difference” republishes several studies of human dissimilarities, from the time of Thomas Jefferson to the present. Hammonds stressed it is important to look at the long history of the study of differences in humans because even though scientific methods and societal perceptions change, the study of such differences has tried continuously to answer the same questions.“If there is one thing we hope students learn from this book, it is we are these debates. We are the ones who keep raising these questions in the same ways, over and over again,” Hammonds said.The first 40 students received copies of the book, with a chance to have Hammonds sign them. But the chance to hear directly from the scholar is what brought most students to Sever Hall during Wintersession.“I thought it was really fascinating. I know people who have had her in class, and I have heard really good things about her as an intellectual. Not only is she the dean, but she is also a scholar, so this was a good opportunity to hear her speak,” said Elise Baranouski ’15.last_img read more

first_imgThe Department of Education at Saint Mary’s College and the Michiana Writers’ Center are teaming up to host a teen writing conference Saturday called Get Inked on Saturday in the Carroll Auditorium of Madeleva Hall.The conference, open to students in grades 8 to 12 and held on the Saint Mary’s campus, will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The event will feature keynote speaker Tracy Bilen, author of the young adult novel “What She Left Behind.”Kathy Higgs-Coulthard, director of the Michiana Writers’ Center and education professor at Saint Mary’s, said the conference hopes to strengthen teens’ writing skills with engaging workshops and guest speakers.“The Get Inked Teen Writing Conference is designed to provide teen writers with the same types of experiences adult writers get at their writing conferences,” Higgs-Coulthard said. “Our guest author, Tracy Bilen, is a huge draw.”The teens attending the conference will not only get to hear Bilen speak, Higgs-Coulthard said, but will also be able to write with her in small group sessions.Saint Mary’s junior Teresa Guerrero will co-teach some of the workshops.“As an English major and Secondary Education minor, my involvement in the conference is to help teach a brief lesson about the workshops I am helping to conduct and help students with any[thing] they may need,” Guerrero said.According to a list provided upon registration, students can choose from workshops covering a variety of topics including how to find inspiration, write body language, establish effective settings and write compact stories. Beyond traditional story themes, the conference will address additional topics relevant to teens through a college essay workshop.Higgs-Coulthard said the biggest benefit for the attending students will be the opportunity to meet like-minded teens.“The conference is geared toward students in grades 8-12 because those writers are usually functioning at a more sophisticated level of writing — both creatively and analytically — than younger students,” she said. “Those students are often able to adopt new strategies into their writing and consider suggested revisions.”Guerrero said she is excited to work with the students who are willing to devote their Saturdays to writing.“I was motivated to get involved with the conference because of the students who are coming,” she said. “Hopefully I can incorporate some of the ideas presented at the conference into my own teaching one day.”The conference is also going to be helpful for writing teachers, Higgs-Coulthard said.“Area teachers are invited to attend the morning session for free in order to learn more about teaching writing,” she said. “Mary Nicolini, the site director for our area’s National Writing Project, will be on hand to answer questions.”Additionally, most presenters are not just teachers, but writers themselves, Higgs-Coulthard said. This gives the presenters an increased understanding of the struggles the teen writers are facing, she said, which will help make them more able to help the teens.She said this is the second year for what she hopes will become an established annual conference.“The conference exists to celebrate and support teen writers,” Higgs-Coulthard said. “While sporting events showcase athletes and other events like band concerts and theater plays showcase performers, there is nothing else around to showcase the talents of Michiana’s young writers.”The Get Inked registration website advertises an autographed copy of Bilen’s novel, “What She Left Behind,” for each attendee. The $40 registration fee covers a full-day’s attendance and lunch.“Saint Mary’s education students are invited to attend the morning session from 8-11:30 in Carroll Auditorium for free,” Higgs-Coulthard said, but must email her at [email protected] to RSVP.“I hope that students will take away new ways to write,” Guerrero said. “I am still learning … just as these students are.”Tags: Department of Education, Get Inked, Kathy Higgs-Coulthard, Michiana Writer’s Center, Tracy Bilen, Writing Conferencelast_img read more

first_imgThis year marks the fifth consecutive year that the University of Vermont has seen record-breaking enrollment numbers. Approximately 13,100 students will begin classes on Monday, Aug. 31, a number that includes 10,200 undergraduates, 1,450 graduate students, 450 medical students and 1,000 non-degree students. Also breaking records in numbers this year are UVM’s ALANA (Asian-American, Latino, African-American, Native American and multi-racial) students. Approximately 1,090 ALANA students are expected to enroll this fall, a 13.8 percent increase over last year. That gain is in large part attributed to a 51.9 percent increase in first-time, first-year ALANA students, up to 313 from 206 last year, making the Class of 2013 the most diverse in UVM history.The evening before classes begin, the university will celebrate the new academic year with a convocation ceremony on Sunday, Aug. 30 at 6 p.m. in the Patrick Gymnasium. This year’s keynote speaker is Tracy Kidder, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World.

first_imgThe FARC’s ‘illusions of power’ On July 21, Colombian National Police agent captured Martín Leonel Pérez, a suspected FARC operative who is also known as “Richard.” He allegedly managed about 60 percent of the FARC’s drug trafficking enterprises, according to La Prensa. Before he was captured, Richard allegedly transported large amounts of cocaine and marijuana to Central America, Mexico, and the United States. He also smuggled weapons to the FARC. The curtailment of FARC capabilities can be credited in part to the captures in recent months of important FARC leaders: For instance, even as they fight FARC terrorists, the government is providing social, educational, and economic assistance to the civilian population in vulnerable regions. In the last four years, as part of the implementation of the Sword of Honor program, the Defense Sector has provided nearly $15 billion (USD) to invest in some of the country’s most remote areas. They’re working in coordination with the head of the Military Engineers, who build high schools, highways, bridges, and houses throughout the country. FARC and the National Liberation Army (ELN) do not have the capability to carry out large-scale military actions in the regions where Sword of Honor troops are providing security, according to the report “Six theses on the recent evolution of the armed conflict in Colombia,” which was released on September 23 by the Ideas for Peace Foundation. In addition to neutralizing so many FARC operatives, Sword of Honor troops have improved public safety by maintaining a presence in 1,103 municipalities in the departments of Putumayo, Arauca, and Catabumbo. They protect both the civilian population and the local oil-production infrastructure – a frequent target by the FARC, which tries to extort money from petroleum companies and disrupt the economy. They’ve also made a dent in regional drug trafficking by seizing 235 tons of cocaine. In those regions – La Guajira, Tolima, Meta, Catatumbo, Tumaco, Bajo Cauca antioqueño, Nudo de Paramillo, the southern and northern regions of the Cauca Valle, Arauca, Caquetá, and Putumayo – FARC operatives are instead focusing on small-scale criminal enterprises, such as extortion and theft, according to Ideas for Peace. For instance, even as they fight FARC terrorists, the government is providing social, educational, and economic assistance to the civilian population in vulnerable regions. In the last four years, as part of the implementation of the Sword of Honor program, the Defense Sector has provided nearly $15 billion (USD) to invest in some of the country’s most remote areas. They’re working in coordination with the head of the Military Engineers, who build high schools, highways, bridges, and houses throughout the country. I like that the government is constricting the FARC’s lust for power. They should fight them….because what Colombian is going to want a president who comes from the FARC with all the police they have assassinated and so many civilians as well as the people who have had limbs amputated by the land mines that these miserable guerrilla fighters have buried all over the country. “Put an end to them now”. I think the news is very interesting because that’s how we know what’s going on all around our planet Of course, Moñito!!!! For more than 50 years we’ve read and heard the same story and the FARC are still there like nothing. Those who tell the story today do it to make people who don’t know the history of the war believe that the peace process has no reason to exist and that the guerrilla forces should be eliminated by blood and fire because they are on their knees. Nothing could be further from the truth. You can’t just read the official story, you also have to get information from other sources, different from the press releases read line-by-line that come out of the brigades. The fight for peace is a necessity and glory for Colombia. It’s good peace is sought through social investment, far away from weapons They’re like the Islamic group that now, like the Islamic State, has horsewhipped the countries of Syria, Iraq and part of Turkey. The difference is that that Islamic group assassinates human beings individually and systematically by public beheadings, whereas the FARC commit mass assassinations, most of whom are innocent and defenseless victims, by launching cylinder bombs and putting bombs under motorized police and National Army patrols. In the end, worse crimes than those in the Islamic State. the people that cannot be said they do and stop doing it when they decide it Insofar as the national government continues to give space to these cynical, unabashed thieving criminals, they’re going to take advantage of it. That is why we all of the civilian population have to unite and present a strong front to this whole plague that only causes the country pain with so much murder, drug trafficking and terrorism THIS IS THE RESULT OF A CONSTANT STRUGGLE WITHOUT REST UNTIL PEACE IS ACHIEVED To Santos’ ear: Malala, the Pakistani girl did not receive the Nobel Peace Prize for trying to silence the guns of Al Qaeda, rather for asking for the right to study for Muslim women. So, in the end, President Santos, gives up on the dream for peace and gets to work governing. We have serious and urgent difficulties, such as overcrowding in the prisons, a strike in the judicial system, a strike in INPEC. “If it’s not Capas” QUIT. I don’t understand how the FARC, the most powerful assassins in this country, can dare to aspire to become part of the government. Of course, with the kind of president we have it’s not at all strange. As far as I know the history of my country, I have never seen such a liar and a hypocrite as Santos. He needs to stop the circus he’s got going on in Havana. Timochenco is an assassin with several warrants to arrest him out he lets him leave the country he has no shame and he didn’t say anything about it. Look at how he deceives the people, how painful to our homeland Over the years of history of this country, I have never met a person who was a greater liar and hypocrite than Santos. The guerrilla force attacking the villages, killing civilians in seconds and they need years to make a decision. Stop the circus going on in Havana, taking money from the people to support these assassins. The way he had the issue of Timochenco put away, he didn’t tell the country about the travels this assassin made to Cuba and as if this were not enough, two more are traveling now. Definitely, in this country the criminals have it better than the good people who are starving to death like the children in La Guajira, but he doesn’t care about this, he’s looking for a Nobel Prize. I hope to live to see if they give him one. Mr. Uribe’s biggest mistake was to leave you in charge as President of this country, what a shame. I hope they keep weakening the guerrilla structure this way…Since what we can see from the peace talks is that they’re going nowhere and the guerrilla bosses have had more than two years off now on the Cuban beaches while their soldiers continue to weaken and die for a war that they don’t understand while their bosses are enjoying themselves in good hotels and on Cuban beaches….Let’s think about it, boys. I hope what they say is true. If so, congratulations. Because the circus in Havana has been going on almost three years and they haven’t done anything but talk. I would like to know who is paying for that circus in Havanna… Thank you. This problem is really complicated because they are forces with ideologies that go against the common good of the citizens and they rely on drug trafficking and extortions and other things used to be able to finance their terrorist acts. In any case, the state does as the law says but it also in a way is turned into a great deceiver of the work of the Colombian people and both forces intend to do their own thing so that the war has turned out to be a good deal for them, for some it’s legitimate, and for others it’s not. Both forces claim they defend the interests of the citizens but it’s “freedom” because we are not freed of anything. Santos, you are a disgrace for this country. When you were Defense Minister you were able to do something because you were backed by Mr. Uribe. You lack you-know-what to govern. You let the FARC brainwash you. What hope could the people have, giving those assassins champagne at the expense of the people. Why don’t you take from your own pocket to support the circus? There’s something, Timochenko has some reason to ask SantoFARC not to include Alvaro Uribe or the Centro Democrático in the peace accord (discord) What peace? So he can intervene with the government in the talks. I don’t think Uribe and his advisors will allow him to do anything in this regard for two reasons: because you don’t give dogs wisdom and experience. And secondly: you don’t attack weak enemies, you let them die all on their own without attacking them. So let’s let Santos, who got into this by himself, save himself on his own, and the Centro Democrático watch over as it is supposed to and enforce the Constitutional mandate. Congratulations to the Military Forces of Colombia. These are positive reports which bring us peace to our daily lives. I think that Mrs. Gabriela Osorio and many everyday Colombians are unaware of the history of violence in our country, from the wars for independence (in which very young men fought) followed by the two-party wars of the 19th century, in which the leaders also murdered farmers and illiterate fighters, in which among the troops minors fought, recruited in the Plaza de Bolívar, followed by a very cruel war at the time, which was the two-thousand day war whose guerrilla fighters (who used other names, and who killed each other in great numbers without knowing why). These wars and all others in Colombia are the result of frustrated revolutions in the struggle for power by a dominant class since the time of the conquest, to the Republic, to today. How many victims did these conflict have? Thousands in the history of our country. Too bad President Santos gave them a second chance and didn’t opt for putting an end to those assassin narcoterrorists once and for all. It’s completely the opposite. Now they’re working under impunity for the bosses. The article is good on how the FARC are seen currently. But the army doesn’t do it all. If you didn’t know, the national police also has anti-guerrilla groups better known as the EMCAR, which are also in conflict areas and very dangerous areas. The EMCARs are in dangerous areas more than the army itself. I invite you to research a bit more on who are the anti-guerrilla police groups. AN IRON FIST AGAINST ALL THE TERRORISTS…!!! The State deserves to be recognized for this work. The military forces have earned our respect and affection; the civilian population now enjoys more peace, opportunities to study, means of communication and other services that it did not have before. Thank you for all of that. During the Uribe administration, all the municipalities in Colombia were free of this plague. What is the honor of the current administration in militarizing certain villages ?- I don’t believe any of the crap in this article. The s.o.b. government under Santos the scourge, wretched traitor he’s creating a farce to turn power over to these double s.o.b. guerrilla fighters, bastardly murderers, mangy dogs s.o.b.s God bless them for the sake of our children and grandchildren. But I would like it if the big international and national tribunals would judge and condemn that cowardly fighter Henry Castellanos who thought one day he’d take Bogotá and sent children to the flanks of attack and rearguard so they could be canon fodder confronting the Colombian Army!WORLD NGO FOR THE DEFENSE AND PROTECTION OF CHILDREN IN COLOMBIA AND IN THE WHOLE WORLD !. ORG …. director ….jose andariego…the poet True, they should be harsh with criminals in general, in addition to social service and community service and good works, too. WE HAVE TO KEEP BEING HARSH WITH THEM. IN ONE HAND A CARROT, AND IN THE OTHER, A STICK. The bad ones need to be taken away and put somewhere else and cut off their communication. Keep thinking that the police is in the most dangerous places compared to the glorious army, which goes around obsolete The truth is the guerrilla has never been honest or honored almost no one believes them, but we have to give peace a chance. If they don’t know how to take advantage of it, the armed forces will come down very heavily on them and the Colombian people will hate them. It will then be their loss, but if they become socialized and live in peace creating benefits for humanity. There will be a lot of favorable things for those armed groups, opportunities that not even men and women who have served the homeland wholeheartedly have had. Sadly, in Colombia every day we see how that narcoterrorist band gets stronger and kidnaps more children to increase their troops and with the indirect support they receive from the government. Today they’re at the summit, paid for with the taxes good people all their leaders in Cuba and they get stronger and stronger politically. Uribe is the only president who knew how to get results, all the rest in the past 50 years look like fools. It’s sad that RCN would publish an article with so many lies and statistical errors. For example, he speaks of 1103 municipalities in just three regions. He speaks of a support of 15 billion dollars, an exorbitant amount which the U.S. has never supplied to Latin America as a whole. Otherwise, the writing is incoherent There needs to be more strategy Some say Uribe’s comments are very to the point, I wonder: Why did he enter into agreements with the paramilitary forces? Were they the best assassins? How is it that Mancuso assassinates 900 people and states his connections to the military and serves 8 years in prison? Right now, in the U.S. they’re serving time for drug trafficking and from there they organize assassinations in Colombia, the organize the gangs, then what can Uribe say? This peace process is the biggest farce. The Colombians sleep while the clown we have for a president does whatever he wants with his dog paddling, giving the country away to those criminals. Why didn’t he take the true victims of the conflict to Cuba???? What a ruinous and contemptible stage play. Let’s wait for the surprise those criminals have for us, to get what they want and leave our country at their mercy. WHEN THE GUERRILLA FIGHTERS HAVE SPOKEN OF PEACE WITH THE THEY HAVE EVIL IN THEIR HEARTS THEY DON’T THINK ABOUT PEACE, JUST IN THE CHILDREN THEY RECRUIT TO ENGAGE IN ASSASSINATIONS….. All this is a farce, perpetrated by the poorly called President of Colombia, who, along with the Minister of Defense and all his committee, come up with these lies so the people can be deceived again with the story about peace. Meanwhile, the FARC spend their budget on bodyguards, armored cars, good hotels, the freedom to come and go from the country whenever they want. The people continue to suffer hunger, more violence, no hope. They go on kidnapping, killing, extorting and bleeding the country drier. And this poorly called President talking about false but yearned-for PEACE. Santos does not deserve to be the president of this country. It is shameful. In my view, the government should help to create jobs. Not just for youth but also for people of different ages and sectors. This is a way to give money to the population and employ it, keeping more people away from causing crime and adding new members to the revolutionary forces. If I live well and have what I need, why would I cause damage? There must be many who think the same way and just a few who do not. Really great As long as we don’t change the way we think (being negative, being pessimistic, being intolerant, being prideful, etc.), there is no reason to think about a change in our country… If we all were to opt to do the opposite, if we all pull in the same direction, if we all think the opposite, we’re positive… Be assured that change will be seen or will be noticed to be a certain percentage higher, and this change wouldn’t be for just a few, but for all, because it is in the interest of all of us, and the country would live in harmony, and with a deep peace, which is what we all desire. It doesn’t matter who is in charge now or who was in charge before or who will be in charge later; here what is important is that we all unite and each one of us contribute his or her little grain of sand and let us get out of this misnamed war crisis which in the end are criminal groups that hurt us every day… Please, Colombia, don’t blame anyone for the situation we’re in, let’s us speak nicely about our country no matter where we are, let’s not be prideful and you will see how well it will go for us… “We are all brothers, sons of our beautiful Colombia”. that is the best thing that could happen to Colombia, that they continue to attack those terrorists Peace doesn’t come from signatures and agreements with the terrorists. It will be achieved when in the country corruption, smuggling, drug trafficking, trafficking of minors is determined, when there is justice, education, employment, health for all, and not the band-aids the government gives us from those rights. We don’t want to see the President in the newspapers and newscasts giving out free houses, there are hardly enough. The photos of the thousands who have no houses. When there are no claims on these points in Colombia: WE WILL SIGN THE PEACE AGREEMENT. In 8 years Uribe brought the country back from the hands of the guerilla forces and in 5 years Juanpao gave it back. Too bad. I agree IF WE’RE WEAKENING THE FARC, ACCORDING TO YOUR NEWS, WHY ARE WE GOING TO TURN THE COUNTRY OVER TO THEM. YIELD ON EVERYTHING TO THE ASSASSINS WITH WHOM SANTOS’ CASTRO-CHAVEZ GOVERNMENT IS VACATIONING AND TALKING TO IN HAVANA. Very good article. I agree that the FARC and ELN have been decimated. The Military Forces should increase their actions against these groups without neglecting the Criminal Groups. Don’t forget that these subversive groups are nourished financially through drug trafficking. The government should have more of a presence, promoting social, economic, cultural development and equality in all the regions affected by the armed conflict. This article is not only disrespectful, it’s also contradictory. Can’t you see reality? Every day they blow up oil pipelines, they kill and kidnap military and civilians… they want more?That so-and-so character that you elected as President doesn’t fit the country very well. And as if that wasn’t enough, he put together a circus in Cuba which some idiots call a peace process… And still, those who oppose Santos don’t believe in the reduction in force the Colombian army has wrought on the FARC and they attribute the outcome to Uribe. Say anything you want about former president Uribe, but thanks to him you can go out wherever you want, to rivers and ravines, on the highways, since we were all kidnapped inside the cities,. Why don’t you acknowledge it, “ignoramuses”. You’ll realize the situation this country is in when this administration leaves, which is kneeling before its friends the FARC. We’ll pay the victims’ reparations with our own money while the FARC enjoy their wealth, out on vacation and drinking whiskey with the Congress’s and the President’s blessing. For God’s sake, wake up, open your eyes, long live our forefather. Enormous congratulations to all the members of the “SWORD OF HONOR” for all their achievements. GOD PROTECT YOU. What game are the FARC playing? Killing and kidnapping Alberto Puello, you sure are naive, don’t you watch the news?Attacks, kidnappings, assassinations, blowing up oil pipelines, etc. Get informed and wake up! Many, if not all, the members of the military forces have very low morale, because for Santos, the supporter of Castro and Chavez, an s.o.b. guerilla fighter is more important than a soldier for the homeland. Excellent way for me to keep up to date because sometimes I don’t have time to sit down and watch the news. Fot Juan Diego Oviedo, he must be related to Uribe, according to the comments against Santicos I think the FARC are mocking Santicos and sticking fingers in him let’s see if he has teeth. He should ignore them. And ask for advice from Mr. Petro, let’s see if he knows how it’s being played, because they don’t know the meaning of the word Peace. IGNORE THEM, don’t be so naive. The language used in this comment is highly offensive to the Colombian society: Here excuses are made for narco terrorism and a genocidal criminal group like the FARC is exalted, calling it so-called “revolutionary armed forces…”!!!! What in the world is that????? But, in addition, it would seem to be expressing a “message of great concern,” by pointing out the “financial weakening” of that horde of genocidal murderers!!!!!!!… Anyone would say they’re reading the “news correspondent of that criminal group!!!!!” It is high time now to let the country go forward. Let’s do ourselves a favor so all can reintegrate into society and we forge ahead with a better future for our children. PUT DOWN THE WEAPONS OF WAR. The only thing it creates is poverty and there are lots of mirrors to look into. You will see the change. My grand Landazabal sustained: the bandits sit down to talk only when we’re beating them militarily and politically. What’s going on in Cuba will not result in anything The thing about investments is just a pantomime. In the areas where the guerrilla fighters are, the army stigmatizes the rural people with the law force The mind and the heart of man without Christ is like an animal and is diabolic, because it doesn’t have the most beautiful thing God gave man: loveJustice, truth to achieve true peace. It is offensive to the nation to call them Revolutionary Armed Forces, when they’re a bunch of terrorist drug traffickers with a very high negative percentage among the Population. That’s great news;.”But”, what’s going on with everyday crime why hasn’t the government built new jails, so there’s no over capacity or over crowding. The money seized from drug trafficking should be used to get these jails built. I feel embarrased by Santos. How can we possibly believe in those peace talks? What’s going on in Havana is a circus. How does the FARC explain to us that they continue to kidnap and kill law officers and our soldiers. Please, Colombia, let’s wake up. What kind of country are we going to leave our grandchildren? President SANTOS is a clown. One of the agreements should be for them to say which people, institutions and others have been backing them, sponsoring them, publicly, since we are all victims. I am glad the Colombian army is decimating the FARC forces that way they’ll be reduced and brought down to little. Of course it’s just a saying, because the malice of A.K.A. Timonchecko has no limit, can’t you see how he gets all puffed up and prickly and towering, to talk the sh.. he speaks. And [cre]pontificate, like Osama Bin Laden The guerrilla-assassins of indigenous people of soldiers and police and kidnappers of unarmed civilians, speak a diabolic tongue and appear legitimate in their actions when in truth everyone watches in horror as they carry out their crimes. They call extortion a contribution to the economy and kidnappings a retention. When society reacts, they call it a temper tantrum in order to wave away wilful misconduct. These talks will have no result. It’s not pessimism, it’s that they themselves know that they won’t pay for their crimes in Colombia. Another authority will require it from them, like the Nazis and the Narcos, and they won’t do it. It’s been two years and this government will go and they’ll delay as long as needed. Non one believes them, not even themselves. In addition to this work being done by the army and the national police, which we acknowledge has great value, because that is what it is all about, to continually undermine their financial power so they are constantly forced to yield on their absurd expectations at the negotiating table in Havana. Meanwhile, I wonder: why is the Attorney General worried about giving them complete impunity, when he should be investigating their properties, among which are millions of hectares of lands acquired illegally with the proceeds of drug trafficking or forced displacement of thousands of unarmed rural people whose lands they took away, the long-time kidnappers who give no information on their victims, the massacres, including the one in Tacueyó which happened 29 years ago without any punishment of the responsible parties, the assassination in cold blood of the Valle representatives, the bank accounts this illegal group has abroad that the state should take over, etc. While it may be true that their political participation should come as a result of the negotiations, it makes no sense that people accused of committing crimes against humanity should expect to occupy elected positions and in addition and what is immensely painful, is the shameful disqualification and lack of recognition of innumerable victims they have left all over the country. Definitely, the enemies of the peace process are not the DEMONIC CENTER nor the extreme right forces, but the FARC itself. THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN THE PEOPLE’S ARMY, THEY WILL PERMANENTLY MASSACRE THE PEOPLE I hope all this marvelousness is truly for the good of the country I wish all this cruelty would end, in this country and Santos doesn’t have the guts to have war end in this country, so much violence. Keep voting for that idiot The truth is that we residents of Colombia do not see this security reflected anywhere. On the contrary, we feel more insecure each day even in our own homes, because we don’t know when a bomb is going to explode on us or these terrorists are going to kidnap us, since they even kidnap Generals of the Republic. In case they know where they are they don’t go after them Congratulations to our armed forces who give us security. But as long as the laws aren’t changed, and they change out those who are more corrupt than the judges or magistrates because all they’re after are benefits. Look at everything they’ve taken from the narcos which ends up in the hands of relatives or friends. The other thing with jails is that they should be like in other countries he who enters without anything like in the story without any clothes and no conjugal visits and I hope they don’t bump into him, visit him and you’ll feel it to commit The guerrilla force can be a terrible evil, but it is not the only one. The worst evil can be in a lack of education and an excess of time. We have to dedicate to matters that aren’t very important. In other words, there is no mass media that delves deeply, the truth is not told and this, we can do nothing to change it. AND IN SPITE OF ALL THAT BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, THE FARC STILL HASN’T BEEN EXTERMINATED AND THEY CONTINUE TO HOLD SWAY. ALL THIS IS NOTHING BUT OFFICIAL PROPAGANDA. IF THE PROPAGANDA WAS TRUE, THEN WHY DO WE HAVE A CONTINUOUS DEPLOYMENT OF A GREAT NUMBER OF COMBAT UNITS AND THE FARC SIDE DOES NOT CEASE WITH ITS ARMED ATTACKS. I believe that if the government would put an end to terrorism, it would be a resounding success, since it has enough strength. But the problem lies in the interests the high ranking politicians, capitalists, media and members of law enforcement itself have, who for half a century have taken the conflict as a way of life. These subjects are not interested in peace in Colombia. Why is it that while they speak of peace, on the other hand they take the lives of police and soldiers? What is President Santos thinking? You can’t hold a dialogue like this. How many families of police officers and soldiers from the north of Santander have lost their sons in this war which is a business and don’t even count. How many men have died up to now in the country. There is no number that would allow us to verify the truth Well, it offers a deeper look at what truly is happening in our country In brief, all the FARC want is a new role in the world. Wake up, Colombia. The more peace offerings made by the FARC and the ELN groups, the higher the demand for war, not just in Colombia, but all over the world Too bad the head of the executive branch has brought the country to its knees before the subversives with the acquiescence of the judiciary. I can absolutely relate to José Joaquín’s view True peace does not originate there, but it does in educating our children for tomorrow and creating employment sources for young people to work and support themselves and their families, and the big government leaders just try to fix the problem with warm towels, no, the problem has to be attacked at its roots (sources of employment, easy access to education in all three stages, continuous campaigns against drug addiction and above all guarantee a basic, comprehensive life system for each individual.) That is true peace. THAT IS PURE PROPAGANDA BLAH BLAH BLAH, MORE FALSE POSITIVES. JUST LOOK AT THE CASE OF GENERAL PAPAYA PRETENDING TO DO SOCIAL WORK WHEN WE REALLY KNOW THAT THE MILITARY ARE NOT WELCOME IN MOST RURAL POPULATIONS WHO ARE TERRIFIED OF A FALSE POSITIVE (AND SANTOS, ONE OF ITS INTELLECTUAL AUTHORS, UP THERE) Sooner than later, if it’s not human justice, it will be divine justice that will take care of them. They will have to pay for everything at once with their accomplices the current jelly government. Está usted en necesidad de un préstamo urgente?

The neutralized FARC members includes operatives who were captured, who demobilized by surrendering, and who were killed by military and police forces. FARC and the National Liberation Army (ELN) do not have the capability to carry out large-scale military actions in the regions where Sword of Honor troops are providing security, according to the report “Six theses on the recent evolution of the armed conflict in Colombia,” which was released on September 23 by the Ideas for Peace Foundation. The “Sword of Honor” offensive by the Colombian National Army against the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) has been an enormous success, cutting into the terrorist group’s capabilities by 26 percent.

Gustavo Enrique Ortíz Lozada, who was assassinated while performing social activities in support of the civilian population, reported Info7. On July 21, Colombian National Police agent captured Martín Leonel Pérez, a suspected FARC operative who is also known as “Richard.” He allegedly managed about 60 percent of the FARC’s drug trafficking enterprises, according to La Prensa. Before he was captured, Richard allegedly transported large amounts of cocaine and marijuana to Central America, Mexico, and the United States. He also smuggled weapons to the FARC. The FARC’s ‘illusions of power’ Sword of Honor impacting terrorists In addition to neutralizing so many FARC operatives, Sword of Honor troops have improved public safety by maintaining a presence in 1,103 municipalities in the departments of Putumayo, Arauca, and Catabumbo. They protect both the civilian population and the local oil-production infrastructure – a frequent target by the FARC, which tries to extort money from petroleum companies and disrupt the economy. They’ve also made a dent in regional drug trafficking by seizing 235 tons of cocaine. Sword of Honor impacting terrorists “Although the FARC seeks to construct illusions of power, force, and territorial control, the state has greater military capacity and better tools at its disposal,” said Néstor Alfonso Rosanía, director of the Center for Security Studies, Defense, and International Affairs in Colombia.

In those regions – La Guajira, Tolima, Meta, Catatumbo, Tumaco, Bajo Cauca antioqueño, Nudo de Paramillo, the southern and northern regions of the Cauca Valle, Arauca, Caquetá, and Putumayo – FARC operatives are instead focusing on small-scale criminal enterprises, such as extortion and theft, according to Ideas for Peace. “Although the FARC seeks to construct illusions of power, force, and territorial control, the state has greater military capacity and better tools at its disposal,” said Néstor Alfonso Rosanía, director of the Center for Security Studies, Defense, and International Affairs in Colombia. last_img read more

first_img Press Association The German – a Bundesliga winner with Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg – replaced Rene Meulensteen last week with the remit of lifting Fulham out of the bottom three with only 12 league games remaining. Ahead of Saturday’s game against West Brom, Fulham are four points shy of 17th place and safety, but Magath is optimistic they can secure their top-flight future through hard work. New Fulham manager Felix Magath is sure the Cottagers will avoid relegation from the Barclays Premier League.center_img He told Sky Sports News: “In the next months we will have a lot of work to avoid relegation but in the first days here the work we’ve achieved has been very good. “I’m sure we will avoid relegation with this team as the players are willing to avoid relegation. “We have a good atmosphere at the club when we all work together. “We are able to avoid relegation and that’s now the most important thing. “Now we have to concentrate on the next 12 games, especially on the game on Saturday against West Brom.” Magath had been out of work since leaving Wolfsburg for the second time in October 2012 and expressed limited sympathy for Meulensteen and his assistant manager Ray Wilkins and first-team technical director Alan Curbishley, who have all left Craven Cottage. “I was sacked a few times also, I know the situation and I’m sorry for each coach,” he added. “But we have here a situation where the management waited a long time. “I think if you want to change something you have to do it now. It was late to change the team and change the atmosphere to have a chance to stay in the league. “It doesn’t look like it worked well enough so I don’t care about the reason for the manager before (why he was sacked). I don’t know what he had done, I don’t care. “I take over my duties and look forward to doing the best I can.” last_img read more

During the course of his knock, he also went past 1000 runs in Tests against South Africa. As captain, Kohli averages 63 and at home, his average is close to 68. He has 12 tons in India while overseas, he has 14 centuries.When he edged Keshav Maharaj for two fours in one over, Kohli notched up his 150. Kohli then edged Maharaj for the third time in two overs and he found the third man boundary. That four took him past his previous highest score against South Africa which was 153 which he achieved during the 2018 Centurion Test. Earlier, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane had weathered the storm on an overcast evening session on day 1 but Kohli showed his mettle to negotiate the bowling. He notched up his fifty with two boundaries off Vernon Philander as he remained unbeaten on 63. Resuming on day 2, Kohli had his fair share of luck. He edged a full ball from Philander but it just flew past Quinton de Kock for a boundary. Kohli, though, had no problems negotiating the nervous 90s as he notched up a magnificent century by straight driving Philander to the long on fence for a glorious boundary.last_img read more

first_imgLuckily, the restaurant was approved for the loan. The next steps for El Cholo involved adapting to the new normal, which meant adding online ordering for the first time and arranging deliveries through GrubHub. The restaurant has been able to sell food, albeit at a significantly lower rate than its usual dining-in experience.  Chicharroland has also taken up delivery and pickup orders to comply with state and local guidelines. These orders have been easier for Fonseca to make because he has a bit of a heads-up from customers. It makes the process less stressful than dining in, but it is still no replacement for the in-person connections Fonseca makes with his customers.  The restaurant is also going to continue to maintain its delivery and takeout business, which Salisbury estimates will make up an important part of sales for the next 12 to 18 months.  About a 10-minute drive down Vermont Avenue is a place that also has close ties with its customers. With Love Market and Cafe is known for three essential things: its grocery store, cafe and community programs. Even during the pandemic, With Love remains committed to community service. “I thought it was going to be a lot slower,” Fonseca said.” “I’m just thinking of people not being able to work, not having that income that they’re used to. Of course, I felt like that was going to eventually affect us economically. So the fact that it really hasn’t — that’s what surprised me.” “The same people keep coming through, so it becomes like a family thing where you do miss the people,” Fonseca said. “Even though they still come to pick up the food, there’s not really much talk between us going on, and it’s just kind of getting your food and then [leaving].” “He was like, ‘I could tell that you guys care about the business — not just because of the money, but like you’re sharing a tradition with us,’” Fonseca said. “I feel like our foundation, our overall take on this business — I think is what makes those stand out versus just [making] money out of people.” Although With Love has a market and a cafe, the cafe side of their operation was the most popular part of the business. College students would gather in the cafe to study for midterms and finals. The spring season was also With Love’s busiest time due to graduation parties and extra catering orders. This year, With Love founder Andrew McDowell had to quickly determine how he was going to adjust to his business. Similarly, at Chicharroland, it is all about family. Chicharroland is run by the Fonseca family, who have been taking care of the restaurant for 11 years. Chicharroland sells chicharrones, a Mexican dish that is generally made out of fried pork. After the restaurant industry was hit hard by the pandemic, Roberto Fonseca, co-owner of Chicharroland, was shocked to find his business still running.  Moving forward, the restaurant is creating contingency plans to reimagine business under post-pandemic guidelines. The restaurant is figuring out different ways to set up the facility, taking into consideration the distance between tables and what the space might look like on the busiest nights.  “So, obviously, there’s no idea of what it’ll actually look like when we get there, or even when we get there, but it doesn’t hurt to kind of have that planned out,” Salisbury said.  The future remains unpredictable for McDowell and his business, but he hopes to one day grow With Love by adding a pizzeria to the store. For now, he is working almost every day to keep his business running and remains optimistic that he will emerge stronger from these struggles. “I think there’s 530 people that we employ,” Salisbury said. “They get their health insurance from us. They put food on their table. Some people have worked for us for 40, 50 years.”  They say the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. And after nearly 100 years in the business, El Cholo couldn’t agree more.  For Salisbury, it’s not about making money. It’s about the history of the restaurant and the families who rely on the business.  But as safer-at-home orders were slowly put in place, the once lively restaurant chain turned silent as El Cholo shut its doors for the longest time in its history. In order to ensure the safety of their employees and customers, the restaurants did not serve food for about a month. During that period, Brendon Salisbury, the chief financial officer of El Cholo, enacted protective measures as sales began to fall at the restaurant. Although there was an extra demand for grocery items, McDowell experienced a shortage of staff.  To help alleviate the financial struggle, El Cholo applied to the Paycheck Protection Program, a loan disbursed by the U.S. Small Business Administration that allows employers to keep their staff on payroll. center_img “It’s probably like 25% of what we would usually do sales-wise,” Salisbury said. “It’s just so limited. We’re a full-service restaurant — you come in, you can get a margarita, you can sit down, you know, order dessert and stuff like that.” To do so, With Love created a share box program through which customers can buy a box full of grocery supplies, such as rices, flours, beans and sugars, and it also partners with different organizations to deliver the boxes to families in need. Additionally, With Love is hiring drivers to employ more workers for the business.  Fonseca has not received any additional help from the government, even though he applied to the Economic Injury Disaster Loan which, according to the SBA, is meant to provide economic relief to businesses experiencing a temporary loss of revenue.  “We had to figure out pretty much overnight what we could do to be able to serve our community and be able to keep our employees,” McDowell said. “Pretty quickly, we realized that our grocery — which is an area we haven’t focused on very much and wasn’t as popular as some of the other things — became super popular immediately.” “I feel like you want to do more than you should, which is always the goal, right?” Fonseca said. “To do something better. But as a small business, you don’t really have the financial support where you could just invest $20,000 into a new look, for example. So it just kind of humbled me down. You don’t need to have all of that as long as your food is good and the people like it.” Fonseca is grateful for the loyalty of his customers, crediting their support and friendship as one of the reasons why Chicarroland has been able to thrive. Since the pandemic started, Chicharroland has been receiving more positive reviews on Yelp. To investigate further, Fonseca asked one of his customers one day what makes him come to his restaurant.  (Claire Wong | Daily Trojan) For now, Salisbury is using the tradition El Cholo grounded in to continue to motivate him. El Cholo is family-run, and Salisbury — who is the fourth generation of Salisburys to take over the restaurant — is not leaving any members of the El Cholo family behind.  “Figuring out staff is difficult because in the middle of a pandemic, you have staff [whose] lives are changing too,” McDowell said. “It’s not just your business. Can they still come to work? Are they living with high-risk people? Do they have a cough?” After experiencing loss in clientele due to Trader Joe’s opening in USC Village in 2017, With Love’s market is suddenly reaching new peaks in sales. The cafe side of the business, however, is operating at 10% to 15% of its normal capacity. To keep business going, McDowell started a program to send lunch boxes to hospital workers.  “It definitely means a lot more than just trying to [make] money or whatever,” Salisbury said. “It’s keeping a business alive. I mean, my great grandparents and grandparents survived the Great Depression, so I think I could survive COVID-19.” The pandemic, however, has not crushed Fonseca’s spirits; in fact, it’s allowed him to learn more about himself and his business.  “I didn’t have a salary,” Salisbury said. “We kept only one person on our head of human resources just to have a contact for employees to reach out to and stuff like that. It was basically me and her turning off gas at a certain restaurant, locking it up, making sure that they were all safe.” About half of With Love’s staff couldn’t work within a couple of days of the safer-at-home order. To remedy the shortage, McDowell picked up extra hours at the store.  El Cholo is Los Angeles’ very first Mexican restaurant, founded in 1923 by Alejandro and Rosa Borquez. It has outlasted the Great Depression, World War II and the Rodney King riots. The restaurant has become more and more successful through each phase in history — so much so that it was able to expand to six different locations throughout Southern California.  “We wanted to get into that program and help us, support us and bring our staff back on so we could start paying staff again,” Salisbury said. last_img read more

first_imgCorrection: A previous version of this article stated that it was illegal to ride bicycles on sidewalk. Under LAMC 56.15, it is only illegal to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk with a “willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property,” according to Despite recent student complaints about increased enforcement of bicycle rules by the Dept. of Public Safety and Los Angeles Police Department, DPS said the enforcement was intended to educate students about bike rules on campus and LAPD said enforcement was not targeted at students.Parking spot · Bikes that are not locked to a rack can be impounded by the Dept. of Public Safety and recovered for a $20 fee, according to SCampus guidelines. – Katelynn Whitaker | Daily TrojanDPS Capt. David Carlisle said bikes have been impounded without attached fines because informing students of bicycle-related rules was the primary intention. SCampus says students can receive a $20 fine for each impoundment.“We are trying to educate students about appropriate bike protocols, not punish,” Carlisle said in an email. “Bicyclists need to be considerate of others.”Students have also expressed concern over intermittent enforcement of bike violations by LAPD.According to LAPD Sgt. C. Mayberry, increases in LAPD presence is directly related to officer availability.“We can only do what we have resources for at the time, and we cannot sit [on the streets] for 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Mayberry said. “If we’re out handling radio calls, we might not be on the street enforcing basic traffic violations.”DPS had a station on campus Thursday for students to claim bikes that were confiscated because of violations of USC’s bicycle policy, including being illegally parked. Carlisle said approximately 320 bicycles were impounded.Though students were not fined this time, Carlisle said students who deliberately disregard campus bicycle policy from now on will be fined.“Sometimes fines are appropriate for students who intentionally ignore the rules such as when they block handicapped ramps,” Carlisle said. “During the last [Disability Task Force] meeting there were complaints of bikes blocking the handicapped ramp at Leavey, which is a chronic problem.”SCampus says students who block building access, wheelchair ramps or handicapped ramps receive a $35 impound fee and those who lock their bikes to a ramp receive a $75 fee.Rachel Bensimon, a freshman majoring in communication who had her bike confiscated by DPS, said the university could easily reduce the number of bikes that are in violation of USC bicycle policy by increasing the number of bike racks around campus.“I had my bicycle confiscated by [DPS] after I parked it outside of EVK because all the spots on the bike rack near EVK were full,” Bensimon said. “If [the university] wants to see fewer bike violations in the future, [it] should build more bike racks, because [it] will help prevent bikes from being parked in places that obstruct key areas on campus.”Other students said a strict enforcement of bicycle policy is critical for bicycle security, particularly in regards to the locking and parking student bikes.“It’s great that DPS is taking the initiative [to impound bikes], so we know that they care about bicycle security,” said Kathryn Kinas, a freshman majoring in business. “Bicycle [theft] is a major crime on campus, so DPS should show students that they are addressing the issue seriously.”Some students also said there are more important things LAPD can focus its limited resources on.“I received a $300 ticket for not walking my bike 20 feet across an intersection, and there are people who speed [in their cars] and are ignored,” said Daniella Acuna, a senior majoring in international relations. “If DPS and LAPD want to make a big difference on and off campus, they should focus on reducing crime, since I’ve had four bikes stolen since I’ve been at USC.”The California Department of Motor Vehicles considers bicyclists moving vehicles, so it is illegal to not stop for pedestrians, ride on the wrong side of the road, ride on the sidewalk without prioritizing the safety of others, wear headphones while riding or talk on a cell phone when riding.The Undergraduate Student Government hosted a forum about bicycle usage on campus last year and intends to address the issue with its newest task force, “We are considerate, we are USC.” The task force will discuss the issue during its first meeting later this month.last_img read more

Players, coaches and other organization members were retested for the coronavirus Saturday and Sunday after one player was sidelined because of a positive result. The final two games of a series against Pittsburgh at Great American Ball Park were postponed.The Reds made travel plans for Kansas City and expected to start Luis Castillo (0-2) in the series opener, assuming it’s played.ROUND 2The Yankees look for revenge against the Rays when they open a three-game series in the Bronx. Tampa Bay took three of four from the AL East leaders a week ago and could steal away the division lead with a sweep in the second of three series scheduled between the rivals in this pandemic-shortened season. The Yankees are still without injured stars Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and DJ LeMahieu. New York right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (0-0, 2.31 ERA) opposes 2018 AL Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell (1-0, 2.08) in the opener.PROSPECT TRIES AGAINBlue Jays rookie Nate Pearson (0-0, 5.11 ERA) makes his fourth start, looking for a bounce-back performance against the Orioles after giving up four runs in 2 1/3 innings to Miami last week. The 23-year-old launched his big league career on July 29 with five shutout innings against the defending World Series champion Nationals but hasn’t been as sharp against Atlanta and the Marlins.Pearson said he made an adjustment to his delivery after his last start and intends to be more aggressive on the mound.“I’m developing at the highest level,” Pearson said. “When I don’t have my best stuff, I’m going to struggle.”A BETTER BUNDYBreakout right-hander Dylan Bundy tries to keep rolling for the Angels against San Francisco. Acquired from Baltimore last offseason after four underwhelming seasons, Bundy (3-1, 1.57) has been electric in Anaheim, striking out 35 and walking three in 28 2/3 innings over four starts.TIGER TRYOUTSDetroit is unleashing a few of its top prospects this week, including left-hander Tarik Skubal. The 23-year-old will start against the White Sox in his major league debut after being promoted from the alternate site. Skubal posted a 2.13 ERA in nine starts at Double-A last season and ranks among the top lefty prospects in baseball. He’ll be followed Wednesday by right-hander Casey Mize, the No. 1 pick in the 2018 draft also set for his big league debut. Tigers infielder Isaac Paredes has also been promoted.PITCHING INStruggling to assemble a consistent rotation, the Atlanta Braves dip into their bullpen once again for a starter. Josh Tomlin makes his first start this season against Washington, two days after Robbie Erlin tossed four innings in a 4-0 victory over Miami. The Braves hope that formula works again with Tomlin, used mostly as a reliever during his two seasons in Atlanta. Not that Tomlin doesn’t have plenty of experience in a lead role. He made 144 starts over nine seasons with the Cleveland Indians.“Whatever they want me to do, I’m very capable of doing it,” Tomlin said. “You never really lose that starter mentality.”The Braves’ rotation is in tatters after a season-ending injury to ace Mike Soroka and the demotion of both Mike Foltynewicz and Sean Newcomb. But, for now, the team has decided not to turn to a pair of top prospects, Ian Anderson and Tucker Davidson.Image credits: AP Written Bylast_img read more

But the Pilots actually had two spring seasons in Tempe. The team went bankrupt and was in the process of being sold to Bud Selig in the spring of 1970. The sale wasn’t approved officially until April 1, six days before the start of the regular season. As players awaited their fate in Tempe, the team’s equipment was sitting in Provo, Utah with drivers waited to be told whether to take it to Seattle or Milwaukee. They ended up going to Wisconsin in a rush, and the players wore altered versions of their old Pilots uniforms.

first_imgThe big Five Europe leagues they will close the winter signing period today with a top spending to the 700 million of euros, which is a 20% more that last season and the second historical figure after the 2017-2018 season. On the last day — the so-called deadline day– some are not discarded last operations renowned and with important sums on the table. The most popular movements may be those of Giroud, that leaves Chelsea for Lazio, or Emre Can, who will play in the Dortmund after leaving Juventus.Yesterday it was learned that Piatek passes from Milan to Hertha from Berlin. The big clubs of the Premier they have left some of their duties for the end, such as the late hiring of Bruno Fernandes by United in exchange for 55 million or Bergwijn to the Tottenham by 30. That is undoubtedly inflating the final expense of the Continent.But great animator of the market has been the italian soccer. In the absence of a day for closing, the Calcium had spent 164 million in signings, well above the average of recent years. The 48 that Naples has spent on Lobotka, Rrahmani Y Demme; the 35 of Juventus by Kulusevski; or Inter 20 by Eriksen They have triggered an expense that has affected Europe’s global. Today we will know how much.The Hertha, agitator surpriseThe european club that aims to spend more money In this winter market he doesn’t even play in the Champions League. Its about Hertha from Berlin. The arrival of an investor in November to acquire 49.9% of the shares has meant a economic injection which has translated into signings. Hertha has signed a Ascacibar for 10 million and to Toussart by 20, in addition to the 27 that represent the arrival of Piatek. That is, a total of 57 million To all this we must add the arrival of Klinsmann as a new team technician. The market situation in the other major European leaguesFrance. Cavani was the key to everything. Close at 00:00 The PSG handled some alternatives in case finally Cavani He ended up abandoning Parisian discipline, although it seems complicated. Everything else is in a background. The Monaco announced the hiring of Mock, from Strasbourg, and from Tchouameni, from Bordeaux, which will be new reinforcements for Robert Moreno. Harisson Marcelin, 19-year-old defense of the Auxerre, can still arrive. For its part, the Rennes signed Nzonzi and he wants Wanyama from Tottenham, in case he leaves London. Soumaoro, of Lille, is near the Genoa. The one that won’t move is Marseille, which will shoot until the end of the season with what it had so far.GERMANY. Bayern falls short. Close at 18:00. The Hertha from Berlin pays 27 million euros for Piatek, the Polish striker of Milan and one of the most sought after in this winter market. The whole capital has been the great stirrer in the last days of market in the Bundesliga after signing Toussart (Lyon) as well. The Dortmund It will also have activity almost to the end. The march of Paco Alcacer Villarreal is not his last move. The arrival of Emre Can from Juventus allows to reinforce his center of the field. The Bayern, While, tied to Odriozola but he falls short again in his signing offensive. The current champion trusts everything to the next summer window.ITALY. Lazio ties Giroud. Close at 20:00. After the arrivals of Eriksen, Moses and Young, Inter closes the discharge chapter. Juventus will not move, except the march of Emre Can al Dortmund. The rest of the teams do have plans planned for the last day. Piatek leaves Milan and will be a Hertha player. The set rossonero is interested in the Uruguayan side Viña, from Nacional, and in the Belgian Saelemaekers. The Rome closed to Carles Pérez and Gonzalo Villar. The big bomb can be the arrival of Giroud to Lazio. For its part, the only doubt in Naples is whether Martens stays, which interests Chelsea. Atalanta achieved the transfer of Bellanova (Bordeaux) and wants Tazeme (Nice).ENGLAND. United and Spurs, for a ‘9’. Close at 00:00. The great teams of the Premier keep the doors open. Liverpool have signed Minamino and it doesn’t seem like it will be reinforced on the last day. Yes, Shaqiri can leave. The City, meanwhile, is looking for power stations. A final attempt is not ruled out by Skriniar, from Inter. The Arsenal He also wants a defense, in addition to the already hired Pablo Marí. Cedric Soares sounds. The United is trying to reinforce the front and the Venezuelan Solomon Rondón It would be the alternative. The Chelsea He has failed in his attempts to sign and, even so, he can part with Giroud. Tottenham yielded to Rose to Newcastle and he wants a nine for Kane.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Nantes’ defender Diego Carlos (C) receives a red card on January 14, 2018 © AFP / LOIC VENANCEPARIS, France, Jan 14 – Angel Di Maria scored the only goal as Paris Saint-Germain claimed a controversial 1-0 Ligue 1 win at Nantes on Sunday that was marred by a bizarre late sending off.There was drama in added time as Nantes centre-back Diego Carlos was sent off by Tony Chapron for appearing to accidentally trip up the referee, with the official responding by kicking out at the Brazilian and brandishing a second yellow card. Players told French television after the game that Chapron claimed he had slipped and not kicked Carlos on purpose, despite clear video evidence to the contrary.Di Maria poked in a 12th-minute opener for the visitors, before producing a glaring miss later in the first half.Emiliano Sala thought he had headed in an equaliser for Nantes, but was incorrectly denied by the linesman’s flag.Unai Emery’s visitors took full advantage of their good fortune, and draws for Monaco and Lyon earlier in the weekend, to move 11 points clear at the top of the table.“It was different to lots of (our) matches,” said Emery.“This was a difficult team that put a lot of pressure on us. It’s true that in the second half they pushed more… But I think the win is deserved.”Paris Saint-Germain’s forward Angel Di Maria poked in a 12th-minute opener for the visitors © AFP / DAMIEN MEYERClaudio Ranieri’s Nantes stay fifth, eight points adrift of fourth-placed Marseille.“We did not even score the goal to get a draw, but here there is no video, like in Italy,” bemoaned Ranieri.“Sala comes from behind and the goal was valid. But that’s football.”World-record signing Neymar missed out for PSG with a rib problem but Edinson Cavani returned from injury, looking for the two goals he needed to break Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s club goalscoring record.Argentinian international Di Maria took advantage of Neymar’s absence as he gave PSG the lead with his seventh goal of the season.The front three were all involved as Cavani played a pass into Kylian Mbappe, and the teenager let the ball run for Di Maria to divert past Nantes goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu.Di Maria should have doubled the advantage before half-time, but after meeting Adrien Rabiot’s pass six yards out with an open goal to aim at, he contrived to hit the crossbar.Nantes continued to plug away and came close to a leveller early in the second period, but Sala was denied by a sprawling Alphonse Areola after latching onto a slack Layvin Kurzawa backpass.– Sala effort ruled out –Lyon’s forward Nabil Fekir (R) jumps for the ball in front of Angers’ defender Vincent Manceau on January 14, 2018 © AFP / ROMAIN LAFABREGUEPSG almost took full advantage as Mbappe led a rapid breakaway, with Di Maria again the guilty party as he sliced horribly wide from the winger’s cutback.Ranieri’s Canaries continued to trouble the runaway league leaders and Argentinian striker Sala glanced home a header from a free-kick, only to be flagged offside despite clearly being behind the last defender when the ball was played.The barely believable sending off in injury-time summed up a bitterly disappointing day for Nantes, with Chapron definitely the villain in the eyes of the home fans.Earlier on Sunday, Lyon failed to take second spot after being held to a 1-1 home draw by Angers, despite a goal from Nabil Fekir.Monaco’s goalless draw at Montpellier on Saturday handed Lyon the chance to leapfrog the principality club.Karl Toko Ekambi gave the lowly visitors a shock 14-minute lead from the penalty spot, but the in-form Fekir dragged the hosts level shortly after half-time with his 14th league goal of the season.Bruno Genesio’s men remain third, behind reigning champions Monaco on goal difference.“We’re very disappointed, we had a bad start to the match and a difficult first half,” said Fekir.Saint-Etienne ended a 10-match winless streak with a 2-0 win over Toulouse thanks to goals from Robert Beric and Assane Diousse.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Harambee Stars legend Dennis Oliech with Gor Mahia head coach Hassan Oktay after his first training session at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on December 28, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 28 – Gor Mahia head coach Hassan Oktay has tipped striker Dennis Oliech to be part of Kenya’s squad to June’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON), saying he is experienced and a good role model to the upcoming players.Oliech, whose goal took Kenya to its last Cup of Nations in 2004, has been away from the Gor team over the last two games over a pay row, but returned in Wednesday’s 1-0 win over Tusker FC in Machakos. Oktay says he was pleased to have the experienced forward back and hopes the circumstances that led to his absence will not arise again.“He is one of my best players and I am happy to have him back. I care about my players; sometimes they can lose track, doesn’t matter. It is my job to fix my players and help them improve. Dennis is a great footballer, a great professional with a lot of positive attitude and I wish to see him at AFCON,” the tactician stated.Oliech was not part of head coach Sebastien Migne’s first preliminary training squad, though the French tactician said there was still space for him if he proves his worth on the pitch.The talisman who has scored four times for Gor since he stepped out of retirement to join them was slowed down by a hamstring injury, but has managed to shake it away and return to action.Dennis Oliech in action against Posta Rangers at the Kasarani Stadium on January 9, 2019. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaHe came on as a second half substitute in the win over Tusker yesterday and had a late chance to cap it off with a goal but he blasted his chance over.Meanwhile, the tactician has lavished his players with praise after their victory over Tusker Despite playing for almost three quarters of the game with 10 men following Boniface Oluoch’s red card.He added he was impressed with the squad especially because he made only one change from the team that played in the CAF Confederations Cup on Sunday.“We knew it was going to be a very tough game and I didn’t want to risk and rotate the team very much. With 10 men, tired legs from the Confederations Cup game, mentally and physically exhausted, we played a tough team which is also gunning for the title and winning like this, I am proud of the boys. Tremendous performance; excellent,”He added; “We missed lots of chances, the game should be 4-0 or 5-0.”Gor Mahia had light training on Thursday morning ahead of their trip to Algeria on Friday where they are scheduled to play NA Hussein Dey in the return leg of their CAF Confederations Cup.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgColm McFadden in action at O’Donnell Park: Picture by BrianMcDaid/Cristeph GalleryIT may be Division Two football Donegal are playing this year, but it’s very good football – and manager Jim McGuinness is very happy after three wins on the bounce.Taking on Ulster Champions Monaghan, even at home at O’Donnell Park, was never going to be easy.But Donegal coped with everything the Farney men threw at them. And that was very pleasing for McGuinness.“From our own point of view it’s good to get up and running at home,” he said.“We had two good away matches where the performance levels were of similar quality to today. So that’s three good performances back-to-back for us now.“We played nice expansive football at times against Monaghan, with some really good support play. Overall the attitude was excellent and we now have six points on the board.” The Glenties man says expanding his squad and mixing youth with experience is helping the side reap rich rewards.“Every team in the country is on a mission in terms of goals and objectives for the season. We’re no different,” he said.“We’re a team that’s benefiting from having a lot of senior players who are still central to the team. We have them back in the fold and the added advantage of having new guys like Odhran MacNiallais and Darach O’Connor coming in is a boost.“Dermot Molloy’s form has been really good. Patrick (McBrearty) after his injuries is getting 20 minutes in matches and he’s making an impact every day he’s comes on.“Our overall objective is try and get the lads who had the major injuries last year up to the level required by the end of the League, while also giving youth an opportunity to play in the team. “Those two things have been going quite well in the three games and that’s good.”SO FAR, SO GOOD – McGUINNESS HAPPY WITH LEAGUE PROGRESS was last modified: March 2nd, 2014 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:donegalGAAJim McGuinnessMonaghanNational Leaguelast_img read more

Her uncle Francis Duffy from Lisfannon will also be the auctioneer on the night.“There will be spot prizes for the ladies and there will also be a raffle on the night with some great prizes to be won,” Bernie tells Donegal Daily.Fahan woman Bernie says that as she attended the hospital as a baby, Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital has always been a place that’s close to her heart, and wanted to give back by fundraising to help other children in need.“I have raised for this hospital throughout the years as I have great things to say about this hospital and the work they do,” she explained.” Bernie would like to thank everyone who has supported the event, especially businesses that have donated items and farmers who have donated farm animals.“I would like to mention the businesses throughout Donegal and overseas that have donated items for the auction and the raffle, and to the local farmers who have donated farm animals to the auction. I am so grateful to them and their support, without them this event would not be taking place, and to my family and friends who are being so supportive and helping out with this event and all the hard work that is going into organizing it this week.“This is going to be a great night with lots of laughs for women and men, it’s something different as well!”Music on the night will be provided by High Heels.‘Ewe’ are all invited to join Bernie on Saturday the 3rd of February at 9pm at the Halfway House, Burnfoot for this unmissable night.  Bernie’s ‘woolly’ wonderful fundraiser for children’s hospital was last modified: January 28th, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:bernie duffybuncranaBurnfootfarmer’s auctionfundraiserHALFWAY HOUSElast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ohio landowners could avoid soaring property tax increases in the future as both the House and Senate introduced bills that make changes to the Current Agricultural Use Value (CAUV) formula that would result in more accurate valuations for landowners.Rep. Brian Hill, R-Zanesville, is the sponsor of House Bill 398, and Sen. Cliff Hite, R-Findlay, is the sponsor of Senate Bill 246.“We appreciate Representative Hill’s and Senator Hite’s leadership in sponsoring these bills, which will improve the accuracy of the CAUV formula and mitigate the size of tax increases,” said John C. (Jack) Fisher, Ohio Farm Bureau Federation Executive Vice President.Ohio Farm Bureau has done an extensive study of the CAUV program and identified adjustments to the formula that would provide fairness and accuracy while protecting the integrity of the program. Because no administrative action has been taken on its proposed CAUV changes, Ohio Farm Bureau began pursuing legislative changes.Both bills would enact Ohio Farm Bureau’s suggested CAUV changes. The organization is challenging two inaccurate assumptions in the CAUV formula’s capitalization rate: that land is a short-term investment and that it becomes more valuable as its mortgage is paid down.The two bills would prohibit certain non-agricultural factors from being used in the CAUV formula and remove disincentives for farmers to engage in certain conservation practices. The current CAUV formula assumes land is held for only five years when in reality farmland is typically held for decades and across multiple generations. Currently, there are non-use factors in the formula that inflate farmland value by assuming land appreciates and landowners achieve equity buildup at predetermined rates. But these have nothing to do with the agricultural use of the land. In both bills, the use of equity buildup and appreciation factors would be prohibited.Also in the bills are stipulations that CAUV land used for a conservation practice or enrolled in a federal land retirement or conservation program for at least three years be valued at the lowest of the values assigned on the basis of soil type. This requirement would encourage practices that protect the environment and water quality. Currently, farmers are discouraged from idling land because it is taxed as though it is producing crops. Farm Bureau believes taxing conservation lands at the CAUV minimum value is appropriate because conservation lands are non-producing.This is Ohio Farm Bureau’s second set of recommended changes to the CAUV program. The Ohio Department of Taxation enacted Ohio Farm Bureau’s first round of suggested changes: to more closely tie tax values to current economic conditions in agriculture; include more recent data on crop mix, prices, yields and production costs; and better represent the true value of woodlands compared to cropland. Those changes affect taxes paid in 2016 for counties going through a reassessment this year.last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA — Canada’s health program for refugees and asylum seekers is getting a $283 million boost over the next two years.Immigration officials say the funding increase — contained in last week’s federal budget —  is needed because more people are making refugee claims.The number of asylum claims in Canada more than doubled over the last two years with 55,000 people making refugee claims in 2018.The refugee health program provides health care coverage for claimants while their applications are being reviewed but some reports suggest there is confusion among health care providers about how the program works.Early findings of a study being conducted by law professors at the University of Ottawa have found some refugees are being turned away by health care providers who are under the mistaken assumption they do not qualify for health coverage.Lead researcher Y.Y. Brandon Chen says health practitioners aren’t fully aware that previous cuts to the program were reversed and are also often frustrated by the red tape involved in getting reimbursed for refugee health costs.

In its annual report to the General Assembly, the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) states that more than half of the 541 recommendations it made during 2003-04 have either been implemented or are already in progress.The recommendations called for $16.4 million of savings and recoveries, but OIOS says an extra $10.2 million was actually saved when some recommendations from previous years were finally implemented. Since it began work in 1994, OIOS has identified an average of $31 million in savings every year.Under-Secretary-General for Internal Oversight Services Dileep Nair, who completes his five-year term in April next year, says in the report that OIOS can and should have more independence from the UN, especially in managing its finances and its staff.”Operationally, this will remove any potential for a conflict of interest, given that OIOS has to go through departments that it has oversight of,” he states.The report highlights the 153 audits conducted by OIOS, including reviews of peacekeeping operations, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and procurement and programme management.It also states that it is auditing field security procedures at 14 peacekeeping missions and six political and peace-building missions.During the year, OIOS identified and reviewed several examples of fraud, mismanagement or poor financial or administrative planning across the UN system.In one case, a security officer with the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) defrauded the UN of $130,000 by submitting fraudulent claims for education grants. The ICTR is now implementing the Office’s recommendations in the matter.In another example, the honorary representative of a field office with UNHCR was found to have abused his position for many years to organize the buying and re-selling, at profit, of international driver licences. That representative’s contract has not been renewed. read more

Yesterday’s New York marathon victor, Paul Tergat of Kenya, is not only the world’s fastest man over 26 miles, but an Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), who credits his successful athletic career to the food he received from the agency as a child. “Few people are better qualified to explain how food aid can transform the life of a child,” WFP Executive Director James Morris said in congratulating him on yesterday’s victory. “He exemplifies how just a small amount of help – such as one school meal a day – can make such an incredible difference. We are very grateful to Paul for his tremendous work and commitment as a WFP Ambassador Against Hunger,” he added.Mr. Tergat, who ran himself into the record books in Berlin in 2003 by becoming the first man to run the Marathon in less than two hours four minutes, slicing a remarkable 43 seconds off the previous best for the 26-mile race, struggled to make the three-mile trek to school as an eight-year-old child growing up in the drought- and poverty-ridden Baringo district of Kenya’s Rift Valley.But his life changed in 1977, when WFP started distributing free school lunches at his Riwo Primary School. “Without food, it was very difficult to walk to school, let alone concentrate on our studies. WFP’s lunches made it easier for us to make the most of our education,” Mr. Tergat said on being appointed a WFP Ambassador in January 2004. “A full meal was also the perfect incentive to keep us in the classroom.” WFP school meals cost just $0.19 a day or $34 a year. Research shows that school feeding dramatically increases school attendance and boosts performance in the classroom.Mr. Morris recently announced that the number of hungry people the agency is trying to feed this year in sub-Saharan Africa had climbed to 43 million – an all-time high and double the number from a decade ago. read more

Lakhdar Brahimi briefed journalists at the Palais des Nations after a third day of talks with him acting as a buffer between representatives of the Syrian Government and opposition groups.“In the morning we discussed a paper presented by the Government, general principles, most of those principles are already in the Geneva Declaration,” he said. “And tomorrow we are going to talk about the Geneva Declaration itself and see if we can start debate.”The discussions focused this weekend on getting an aid convoy into Homs, and on allowing civilians to leave the besieged city, cut off from supplies. The idea is that if agreement can be reached on humanitarian issues, it could bring the parties together to work through the political challenges.The Syrian Government has agreed to allow women and children to exit “immediately”, but has asked for a list of the men’s names before letting the rest of the civilians pass.“I think the Government is willing to make it happen, but it’s not easy because there are snipers and there are all sorts of problems,” Mr. Brahimi said.On the food convoy, a topic that was to be discussed today in Syria by the Homs Governor, his advisors and the Government in Damascus, “there is no decision yet to let them in.”“So I am still begging, asking, that we, something be done about these areas, whether these areas are under siege by the Government or by the armed groups,” Mr. Brahimi stressed.Of the more than 9.3 million people within the country needing humanitarian aid, over 2.5 million live in areas where access is seriously constrained or non-existent, such as Homs.In addition, well over 100,000 people have been killed and nearly 9 million others driven from their homes since the conflict erupted in March 2011 between the Government and various groups seeking the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad.“My expectation from this conference is that the unjust war will stop. But I know this is not going to happen today or tomorrow or next week,” Mr. Brahimi told journalists, adding that despite a lack of progress, there is “will to continue these discussions.”The goal of the conference is to achieve a political solution to the three-year-long conflict through a comprehensive agreement between the two sides for the full implementation of the Geneva communiqué, adopted after the first international meeting on the issue on 30 June 2012, and since endorsed by the UN Security Council.The communiqué lays out key steps in a process to end the violence. Among others, it calls for the establishment of a transitional governing body, with full executive powers and made up by members of the present Government and the opposition and other groups, as part of agreed principles and guidelines for a Syrian-led political transition.Mr. Brahimi, who has briefed journalists daily since the latest round of the talks started, also called on the two sides to be “a bit careful” with statement made to the media.“I have told them this afternoon that there was need to be responsible and respect, if possible, the confidentiality of the discussions,” the joint envoy said. “If you don’t respect the confidentiality at least don’t overstate the case.” read more

Pensioners have been left outraged after piles of old vehicles at a nearby car scrapyard reached 50ft high behind their homes.Residents in Poole, Dorset, described the five-storey stacks of written off cars as a “hideous monstrosity” which now dwarfs their bungalows.Homeowners also warned the giant structure is a fire hazard amid fears over a repeat of a blaze that swept through the compound in 2016, when over 170 vehicles were destroyed.Charles Tent, the scrapyard owners, said the stacking system enabled vehicles to be piled up in a “more modern and cleaner way”.However, retired engineer Charles Caffey, 73, claimed the “eyesore”, which backs directly onto his home, has blocked out natural light and is a safety risk.He said: “When I’m sat in the back garden it feels like I’m in the middle of a scrap yard. “The cars are so close to us I and the other residents fear what could happen in a fire.Poole Borough Council has written to Charles Tent and said it was “investigating” amid claims the structure may need planning permission.However, the owners insist the pile of cars is legal due to a “loophole” in planning laws.Planning Consultant Ken Parke, who have applied for a lawful development certificate on behalf of Charles Tent, said: “”It is not the height that determines whether or not the racking is development requiring planning permission. read more

first_imgHOMEOWNERS AFFECTED BY Spain’s economic crisis and their defenders hailed a big step forward today after Europe’s top court ruled that the country’s eviction laws breached EU rules.“There is no justice in Spain, but luckily there is in Europe,” said Delia Esther Molina, 57, an unemployed Cuban who is facing eviction, demonstrating outside the Spanish parliament.The European Court of Justice (EDJ) ruled that Spanish legislation breached a EU consumer rights directive by preventing courts from halting evictions based on “unfair” mortgage agreements.The Spanish government promised its law would be “corrected” to comply with the ruling.The decision by the EU court in Luxembourg gave a fresh boost for a popular protest movement which last month persuaded the Spanish parliament to consider reforms to the eviction laws.“We are very satisfied,” said Ada Colau, a spokeswoman for the Platform for Mortgage Victims (PAH), the organisation that brought that motion backed by 1.4 million signatures.“This is a big step forward for what we have been campaigning for, over four very hard years,” since the worst of Spain’s financial crisis broke out, she said.At the discretion of judgesThe Barcelona judge who took the case to the European court, Jose Maria Fernandez Seijo, said that “from now on, any judge who detects abusive clauses can decide as a precaution not to evict the consumer” until he has decided whether the terms of the mortgage are fair.Campaigners have accused banks of predatory lending during the Spanish construction boom that collapsed in 2008 and of misleading unwitting borrowers.“I bought my house in 2005. I’m not highly literate, so they really fooled me,” said Jorge Teran, an Ecuadoran plumber who lost his job in 2008.“If they had explained to me the interest rates and everything, I would never have signed.”In a deep recession which has pushed unemployment to record highs of 26 percent, hundreds of thousands of people have defaulted on their loans and been evicted as the banks scramble to get their loans back.Large number of evictions carried outSpain’s top legal authority, the General Council of Judicial Power, says 415,000 eviction orders have been issued since 2008, including for second homes, land and commercial property. Some 60 percent of those evictions have been carried out.In response to popular protests and a string of reported suicides of people facing eviction, Spain’s government in November passed a two-year moratorium on evictions – but campaigners insist it go further.The activist’s bill calls for an end to evictions and for insolvent homeowners to be allowed to write off their debts by surrendering their home.Under current Spanish law, a bank can pursue a mortgage holder to pay off the rest of a loan if the value of the seized property falls short.“I want to be able to hand them my home and have them write off the debt,” said Molina. “I have nothing.”The group also demands that empty properties held by Spanish banks be transformed into social housing.Colau said Spain was an “anomaly” in Europe for the harshness of its eviction laws.“The Spanish exception is over,” thanks to today’s ruling, she said.Gonzalo Moliner, chairman of the judicial council, said the change required by the European ruling was “immediately applicable” in Spain.The head of the Spanish consumers’ association Facua, Ruben Sanchez, called it “a turning point in relations between mortgage-holders and the banks”.Beyond the EU court’s ruling, PAH activists now demand Spain enshrine the group’s demands in new legislation.“They have to change the law, for all the people like me who were fooled,” said Teran.- © AFP 2013.last_img read more

first_imgHP Inc. said Thursday it plans to eliminate between 3,000 and 4,000 jobs over the next two years as it restructures amid falling sales.The company had 287,000 employees worldwide at this time last year. HP said the job cuts will save between $200 million and $300 million annually.Through the first three quarters of its current fiscal year, HP’s revenues totaled $35.7 billion, down from $39.2 billion in the same period a year earlier. Profits totaled $783 million, down from $854 million the prior year.HP Inc. took the personal computer and printer businesses from Hewlett-Packard Corp. when that company split in two last year. HP eliminated 3,300 jobs then in connection with that separation.HP’s printer group has substantial operations in Vancouver and Corvallis, Ore.

first_img Register Now » The deployment of IT services has historically been a one-way street from the software provider to the IT department and, then, the end user. End users received a ‘you must use this application’ mandate from IT, which had to integrate services into the enterprise. Younger workers who grew up with technology, generally lumped together as ‘millennials’,are pushing back. They are having a profound impact on technology choices in the workplace and driving a new equilibrium of power.The top-down approach to IT services made sense when IT departments did extensive product evaluations, purchased software from IT vendors and installed, configured and maintained that software. This significant enterprise investment resulted in a virtual mandate that all employees use corporate applications.Related:6 Tips for Managing Millennials (Whether You Find Them to be Entitled or Not)End users were relatively naive technologically, which made them more receptive to learning the enterprise’s applications. In addition, end users had few or no comparison applications against which to evaluate them.With the cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) applications now becoming viable and even beneficial means of deploying IT services, IT is going through a new evolutionary phase. Evaluating and deploying IT services no longer require significant time and capital. Upgrades and maintenance occur more rapidly and with more consistency. Without the hard constraints of implementing back-end services on premises, IT can focus on matching available cloud services to end users requirements.The age of millennials. With the advent of the iPhone, smartphone use exploded among consumers and the business workforce. Indeed, the line between a consumer and a business user is now blurred, as they are typically one and the same. These users carry the millennial label, as they are the first generation of converged users.What does this means for IT? End users in the workforce are no longer completely naive of technology. In fact, millennials have a strong understanding of what technology can do for them. A study commissioned by Intel Corporation in 2013found that millennials want more from technology, and that in itself has had an impact on innovation in areas ranging from personalization and self-configuration to ease of use.A manual that teaches employees how to use an application is a relic today. Millennials are a new breed of business users who enter the workforce with strong expectations of how technology should be delivered and function. In the truest sense, the democratization of IT has begun.When faced with ‘older-generation’ technology that doesn’t meet their expectations, millennials have the technical savvy to find applications on consumer app stores and to attempt to integrate them into their business world. There is even a name for these millennials: rogue users. You can’t really fault them. Instead of being forced to adapt to technology that doesn’t work for them, they seek out technology that helps them work effectively and efficiently.Related:Want to Nab Top, Young Talent? Millennial-Proof Your Office.Unfortunately, many consumer apps lack features such as business-level security, centralized administration and control, and support and quality-of-service metrics that businesses require. These deficits set up an end user vs. IT conflict that generally results in a winner and a loser.A new equilibrium. A new dawn has arrived for IT, which if embraced, can create a collaborative equilibrium that will have a positive impact on workforce productivity while lowering IT costs and complexities. By collaborating with millennials and cloud vendors, IT can drive consumer features into business-hardened cloud services, creating benefits for end users, IT and the enterprise. The alternatives — forcing employees to use antiquated vendor-driven services or making IT manage multiple consumer-based apps — will lead to one side or the other feeling the pain. Neither side will hold 100 percent of the power going forward. They can achieve a happy medium by working together with cloud vendors committed to delivering business-hardened services that meet the expectations of millennial end users,.Where the future lies. Clearly, the ability of end users to influence IT to deliver a better user experience without compromising enterprise requirements for security, privacy, manageability, support and reliability is a step in the right direction. Service providers can play a key role in integrating feedback from end users and IT into next-generation services that can better meet the needs of both.Related: Want to Nab Top, Young Talent?

first_imgDropping it inHere’s an example of Rosen’s picturesque ability to throw receivers open.Arizona trailed 17-10 when Rosen opened up a five-play, 80-yard drive with a dime to Seals-Jones, who breaks off linebacker Bobby Wagner on the inside and just in front of a defensive back bearing down on him from behind. The pass is inches out of the reach of Wagner, who is in solid position to break up a pass that isn’t closer to the sideline.“When you look at some of the throws, particularly the two to Ricky, late in the game, tight windows, very impressive,” head coach Steve Wilks said. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 7 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories On several occasions, Rosen threw his receivers open, putting the ball through tight windows and keeping them out of reach of defenders.Here are five throws that stood out from Arizona’s 20-17 home loss to Seattle.The home run ballLet’s start out with a deep ball that would’ve been close to a score.A play-action shot to J.J. Nelson hit the wideout well enough after he blew past the Seahawks’ backend defenders, but Nelson couldn’t come up with the catch in the second quarter. The drop forced the Cardinals to put together a lengthy drive that was aided by a pass interference penalty, putting Arizona in the red zone. Fantastic throw from Rosen. Ruled incomplete as only 1 foot came down in bounds though— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) September 30, 2018Rosen’s pass had enough zip that it got to Williams before Thomas, who wasn’t fooled, could converge. Williams made the grab, and the play was first ruled a touchdown before replay showed he didn’t get a second foot cleanly inbounds. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen (3) throws over Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Jarran Reed (90),offensive guard Germain Ifedi (65) and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (98) during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Rosen takes hit late from twisting DE and hits TE in stride— Matt Waldman (@MattWaldman) October 1, 2018Close but no cigarAt the Seattle 27-yard line with 24 seconds left in the first quarter, Rosen not only got the ball off with a Seahawks defender bearing down on his backside — he put it in the perfect spot for a catch by receiver Chad Williams.As was a theme Sunday, the quarterback put the ball in between two defenders, forcing Williams to go get the ball high and at the pylon, out of danger of being intercepted.“I saw man across the board, dropped back, tried to push (safety Earl Thomas) to one side and throw to the other,” Rosen said. “Real close but no cigar.” Josh Rosen to Chad Williams touchdown— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) September 30, 2018The Cardinals used the momentum from the play above to score.A protection-heavy package put just two receivers — Williams and Larry Fitzgerald — out on a deep crossing route from 22 yards out in the fourth quarter.That gave Rosen what he called “hours” to make a play, and he admitted to going back and forth, determining if he could connect with either Fitzgerald, who ended up on the right side of the field, or Williams. Rosen eventually settled for a bullet of a pass at the knees of Williams, which once again kept it out of the hands of the Seattle defensive backs. Thomas, who was trailing Williams on the play, ended up breaking his leg on the play, and Rosen even spoke to that in detailing the touchdown pass after the game.“It’s not really as much a scheme to it as we just got heavy play action and we got two guys on routes and hopefully one of them will find a way,” the rookie said. “Just kind of sat back there for awhile, had Larry and Chad on two really deep crossing routes and kind of felt the pocket, I had some time so went back and forth a couple times. Maybe if I’d had gave Chad a little better ball, Earl wouldn’t have been on the ground. I feel kind of bad about that.” – / 28 We need to import some legit receivers in to save Rosen— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) September 30, 2018Rosen could nitpick that the ball should have traveled 60 yards through the air instead of 55, but a catchable ball is a catchable ball.Stepping up in the pocketRelated LinksCardinals drops, Earl Thomas’ errant finger stand out vs. SeahawksIn a loss that had plenty of blown opportunities, Dawson’s kicks stand outCardinals open up playbook but go conservative late in loss to SeahawksThe Cardinals are 0-4 yet the biggest takeaway is cause for celebrationRosen’s performance provides rare bright spot for CardinalsThis one looked like trouble upon the release. Rosen didn’t panic with the pocket collapsing toward him, stepping into a throw just before he was clobbered by a Seattle pass-rusher.More frighteningly, he put the ball in the middle of five players: two receivers from Arizona and three defenders. Dog wuuuuutttttt— Jon Ledyard (@LedyardNFLDraft) October 1, 2018Patience, accuracy and a bullet The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Josh Rosen’s composure might’ve been the big surprise in his debut as the Arizona Cardinals’ starting quarterback Sunday.Take away his lack of NFL experience, and it was still as eye-popping of a performance as one could have in completing 15 of 27 passes for just 180 yards. Save for missing a very wide open Christian Kirk in the end zone while in the red zone, the rookie’s game against the Seattle Seahawks couldn’t have been much more impressive. But like Rosen’s other strikes from his starting debut, the only player with his head turned is a teammate, tight end Ricky Seals-Jones, who made the grab while streaking along the right sideline for a 31-yard gain to start off what would become a game-tying touchdown drive in the front end of the fourth quarter.last_img read more

pronunciation The video went viral with 2044517 so far So unhappy were some Delhi girls after watching the video that they did a parody called The Real Delhi Girl which garnered them 504678 views “We knew that every Delhi girl would be successful just because of the culturally iconic status that Delhi’s young ladies have in our country today She is young and beautiful and has the confidence of someone who knows that the world is at her feet and the sky is the limit The reason people like to laugh at a video like “Every Delhi Girl In the World” is the same reason we like to mock the Ambani’s wealth or male models for their good fortune of being born good looking enough to not have to be smart It is just mild jealousy” shares Karl Katgara Creative Director Culture Machine with Indian Express “The self obsessed rude shallow materialistic person who only listens to Yoyo Honey Singh and cannot pronounce most English words that have more than three syllables in them… Is a caricature Its a joke The rest of us laugh at her with a mild sour grapes attitude We choose to ignore the educated socially responsible career woman who represents Delhi We tease her because we like her” adds

in the competition for EU money Ministry of Education Universities and Research ROME—Last month the Italian government angered many scientists by announcing a series of deep cuts in the budgets of state institutes as part of a broader austerity package ScienceInsider talked to Francesco Profumo who as minister of education universities and research in Italy’s ‘technocratic’ government will have to implement those cuts Profumo 59 is an engineer who was widely praised for the reforms he enacted as rector of the Polytechnic University of Turin one of Italy’s top universities between 2005 and 2011 Before accepting the appointment as minister he served as the president of the National Research Council for 3 months Questions and answers have been translated from Italian and edited for clarity and brevity Q: The budget cuts announced last month will hit 12 state-funded institutes hard and have caused a great deal of commotion Won’t they harm Italian science FP: First of all let’s stop calling them cuts I prefer to use the term "spending reviews" Since the announcement the first 30 million in austerity measures which would have affected national research institutes in 2012 has been canceled through an amendment in the Senate Also I have met with the heads of the targeted institutes and together we agreed to plan a concerted path to share the sacrifices among the various institutes In September we will meet again to start a process to decide where to intervene Our ministry needs to make a contribution for the country which is facing serious economic troubles I think the effects of this spending review for research are tolerable if you take into consideration that the ministry’s total research funds are 7 billion But we need to determine which research institutes can make the biggest contributions And we must reconsider the models of research management in our country and aim for greater efficiency I also want to allow our research bodies to be able to obtain more European funds I will never tire of repeating that for every euro Italy invests in the European research pot our country takes back only 60 cents What strikes me is that there isn’t more indignation about this This is money coming from taxpayers’ pockets after all Q: So you hope Italy can secure more EU money FP: Yes my biggest bet will be on Europe Horizon 2020 the new European research funding scheme will ultimately provide 80 billion Its scope is still under debate and we should use this period to train Italian researchers so that they will be able to compete when it starts in 2014 We contributed 15% to the cost of Framework Programme 7 the predecessor to Horizon 2020 but we received only 85% of the funding in return—in other words we lost about 500 million per year Those are worrisome data Our contribution to Horizon 2020 will be about 17 billion per year If we don’t increase our participation rate we risk losing between 800 million and 900 million per year The key to winning is not necessarily to submit more proposals but a substantial effort to improve the quality of Italian proposals Q: Italian governments often seem to see research as a financial burden rather than an investment Science and innovation have never been priorities Will that change FP: I believe that will change dramatically because of Europe It’s difficult to change the Italian attitude toward science from within But forces from outside will change the trend I am confident that Italy will once again play a leading role in Europe—including in the scientific area Let’s not forget that Italy is one of the founder countries of the EU Q: Italy’s private sector invests very little in research—between 04% and 05% of GDP compared to the European average of 12% What’s keeping them from contributing more FP: The culture really isn’t there in Italian industry No government has ever motivated them to invest in research—for instance by introducing tax breaks I’d like to do that but it’s an expensive proposition I hope the country will enter a phase of greater economic and political stability so that we can provide tax breaks At the same time researchers are not doing enough to publish their results and make them visible and understandable Communication has to improve in this respect Companies could also invest in the universities to help train the people that they might need in the future; that would save them money spent on training and development later on Q: Your reform of the Research Projects of National Interest (PRIN) the main source of public funding for research projects has come under fire Critics say the new rules favor big multiuniversity projects and hurt smaller groups working at the cutting edge How do you respond FP: That has to do with Europe as well Our position in Italy is getting weaker and weaker both in terms of research and funds Some of the newer members of the EU are quite competitive We must change gears Our excellent researchers often lack cohesion and they have difficulty transforming the qualities of single scientists into an organic project I believe that there is a need to create critical mass That’s what we hope to achieve with PRIN Scientists should change attitude and become more generous sharing ideas and projects especially during the grim times Italy is now facing Q: The national research evaluation agency is now working on its first reviews How will they be used FP: The agency will wrap up its first evaluation in June 2013 Italy has not adequately rewarded its best-performing research so far It is true that the system needs more money but that money must be linked to performance For the first time peer review evaluation and bibliometric indicators such as the h-index will be used Originality innovation and competitiveness will be also key parameters Q: You want to increase the number of courses taught in English at the master’s level Why FP: We face a historical moment where more than ever we deal with cultural confrontation I love diversity because I believe that it brings new stimuli energy and creativity Attracting foreigners can be a stimulus for our students and for professors too English is the common language that needs to be mastered in order to become part of the global community I am also collaborating closely with the Italian Ministry of the Interior to set up offices
