first_imgJust when you thought all hope was lost for the music business, it turns out that some things do, in fact, get better. Last week, during the 48th week of 2016, vinyl album sales beat digital downloads in the UK for the first time ever. This new statistic, brought to us by the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) and The Vinyl Factory, expresses a huge growth in the vinyl market in just one year’s time.Vinyl sales in the UK tallied £2.4M to digital’s £2.1M in sales last week. For comparison, last year’s sales during the 48th week of the year saw £1.2M in vinyl sales to digital’s £4.4M. This shows a huge shift in consumer preference, as the popularity of vinyl amongst music lovers seems to be growing exponentially.This comes directly after Record Store Day Black Friday and the overall beginning of Christmas season, which may influence results in some way, but the outcome is all the same. Vinyl, at least for a week, is king. While the sales of digital downloads and CDs are plummeting, the sales of vinyl records are on the rise in a huge way.[photo courtesy of David’s Used Books]last_img read more

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Utility Dive:A Colorado electric cooperative filed with state regulators Thursday to ditch its coal-heavy generation supplier in pursuit of cheaper renewable energy, part of an industry-wide move toward wind and solar.The Delta Montrose Electric Association (DMEA) asked the Colorado Public Utilities Commission to adjudicate a fair exit price to end its generation contracts with the Tri-State Generation & Transmission Association, a multi-state power provider that requires member utilities to purchase 95% of their power from its largely fossil fuel fleet.DMEA’s exit could prompt moves from other Tri-State members, who have pressured the utility in recent years to allow more local renewable energy investment. Two of Tri-State’s rival utilities in Colorado this week pledged to move to 100% clean energy, and a recent economic analysis of Tri-State’s fleet suggests wind and solar could undercut its existing coal plants. DMEA’s decision to leave Tri-State demonstrates how the increasing competitiveness of renewable energy is upending the economics of power production in the American West.In a statement Thursday, DMEA officials said their primary motivator for splitting from the generation supplier is to limit costs to their customers. “Tri-State’s annual reports show that average member rates have increased 56% since 2005, which is more than double the increase in the Consumer Price Index over the same time period,” the co-op said. “This stands in stark contrast to the overall energy market in which prices have decreased significantly over the same period.”More: Colorado co-op seeks exit from coal-heavy Tri-State to pursue renewables Colorado distribution co-op wants out of coal-heavy power supply contractslast_img read more

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Wall Street Journal ($):Wind and solar farms are attracting interest from investors hungry for low-risk, stable-yield opportunities at a time of extraordinary market volatility.That interest is a boon for renewable projects, and could give them a financial boost in coming months and years. However, developers could face challenges in getting additional new projects financed and built amid the turmoil created by the new coronavirus.It might seem an odd time for a renewable-energy uptick, given the economic slowdown and a historic crash in oil prices that is making fossil fuels cheap. But wind and solar farms experienced a similar surge after the 2008 financial crisis, when investors seized on the projects as safe-harbor investments with yields in the mid-single-digit percentages.Wind and solar farms have contracts to sell their electrical output to utilities and companies with good credit ratings for a decade or longer, making their returns stable and relatively low risk.Corporations contracted for 46% of the 20.2 gigawatts of renewable energy added to the U.S. grid last year, according to the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance, a group that represents corporate purchasers. The largest buyers last year were Facebook Inc., Alphabet Inc. unit Google and AT&T Inc. Corporations have been contracting for renewable energy because prices are low and because many have made pledges to lower their carbon output. “No one has yet indicated that they intend to slow their purchase,” said Miranda Ballentine, the group’s CEO.“Renewable-power generation is largely uncorrelated to oil and natural-gas markets, which further strengthen their overall appeal, and may well be one of the first assets classes to unfreeze,” said Keith Derman, co-head of Ares Infrastructure and Power at Ares Management Corp.[Russell Gold]More ($): Wind, solar farms are seen as havens in coronavirus storm Interest in low risk, stable yield renewable energy projects remains strong—market participantslast_img read more

first_imgEveryone knows that fishing from a boat is superior to wade fishing. You can cover more water, get out farther, land more fish, and when your spouse calls to berate you for spending all your time fishing, there is no easy exit back to the car. Unfortunately, johnboats are cumbersome, canoes tend to tip over, and drift boats are impossibly expensive and require a trailer. The good news is that there’s another option that’s underutilized, accessible, affordable, and gaining popularity around the country: fishing from a kayak.Photographer Chris Funk began kayak fishing as a means to limit the fishing costs mentioned above and is now a member of the Jackson Kayak fishing team. He spends 99 percent of his days on the Chattahoochee River, but he has fished all over the South, including the Gulf Coast and Mobile Bay Delta. For him, catching fish is just one advantage of fishing from a kayak.“The older I get, the more therapeutic it is,” Funk said. “Just the drip of the water off the paddle is soothing. I can get to places no other vessel can get to. It’s just a true joy to put that little plastic boat on the water, paddle it wherever I want to go, and have a good day to myself or with friends.”With major kayak companies like Jackson, Hobie, and Native manufacturing models specifically designed for fishing, accessibility is at an all-time high, and getting better. Funk breaks down the advantages of the fly fishing kayak into three simple categories: simplicity, shallows, and stealth.Lightweight and streamlined, the kayak can get you where you want to go without any extra bells or whistles. Funk loves being able to grab a couple rods, a box of flies, and his paddle and hit the water without having to worry about trailers or gas. Because of the light weight, it is also easy to put into a river where another type of craft would have trouble. “The places that I launch in are my favorite spots. They have no launch so the boat has to be carried,” said Funk.A kayak also rides high on the water, allowing a paddler to maneuver over rocks and access spots that others cannot. Kayaks also make minimal noise on the water and have virtually no wake, allowing you to sneak around without spooking fish.“The kayak is so stealthy that I find I can get closer to my target,” Funk explains. “You’re not going to spook as many fish. I’ve had large bass get underneath my boat almost like I was a log instead of a vessel.”If you want to break into kayak fly fishing, borrow a friend’s boat and head to a lake to get acquainted with the technique. Careful, you may get hooked.last_img read more

first_imgBy Dialogo March 02, 2011 Colombia, Mexico, and the United States are moving forward on a joint operation directed toward “cutting the lines of communication” between drug-trafficking groups and focused especially on the fugitive head of the Mexican Sinaloa cartel, Joaquín Guzmán, alias El Chapo, the Colombian police revealed on 28 February. The operation has enabled the identification and inclusion on the so-called ‘Clinton List’ (the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control) of forty-five companies in Mexico, Ecuador, Panama, Spain, the United States, and Colombia. The trinational operation began the last week in February and has made it possible to issue three arrest warrants for purposes of extradition for Guzmán’s liaisons in Colombia, the commander of the Colombian police, Gen. Oscar Naranjo, announced at a press conference. According to Naranjo, the operation has enabled the detention of more than sixty individuals, including Sergio Antonio Mora, alias El Toto, a leader of the Mexican Los Zetas cartel who is allegedly responsible, he said, for the death of Jaime Zapata, a U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement agent. With regard to Colombia, Naranjo indicated that through Operation Mercury, Interpol has issued an international arrest notice for the brothers Jorge Milton, Dolly de Jesús, and Hildebrando Alexander Cifuentes Villa, who are sought for extradition by the United States on drug-trafficking and money-laundering charges. The operation’s second phase is focused on seeking and locating the members of the support network of the Sinaloa cartel boss, for whom the United States is offering a thirty-million-dollar reward, the Colombian police commander indicated.last_img read more

first_img SOUTHCOM carries out joint medical readiness training exercises (MEDRETEs) in Central America every year. The aim is to strengthen civilian-military cooperation between the seven Central American countries through humanitarian assistance operations. These exercises also test the capabilities of JTF-Bravo to quickly provide humanitarian assistance during disasters, such as earthquakes or hurricanes. Since October 2012, Honduran military doctors and dentists and physicians from JTF-Bravo have conducted five MEDRETES in the country, providing medical and dental treatment to more than 5,300 people in La Cuesta de la Virgen, El Aguacate, Barra Patuca, Usibila, El Rodeo, Raya, El Ciruelo, and Las Liconas. . The medical assistance that the Joint Task Force-Bravo provides in collaboration partner nation military and civilian authorities is part of an effort to improve ties with the people of the region, said Iñigo Guevara, a security analyst with the Collective for the Analysis of Security with Democracy (CASEDE) based in Mexico City. “Having these kinds of mechanisms like medical brigades can often mean the difference between life and death for many people” Guevara said. The collaboration between JTF-B and the Health Ministry of Honduras and Honduran military doctors and dentists is important because the effort directly benefits civilians, most of whom are in rural areas where medical care is scarce, Guevara said. MEDRETES are part of the ongoing cooperation between Honduras and the U.S. on security issues, which range from fighting organized crime to providing medical care for people in need, Guevara said. “Honduras and the United States maintain a deep relationship of cooperation in intelligence, defense, security, and humanitarian aid,” Guevara said. Interesting article. It’s good to find that that the armed forces provide this type of humanitarian relief instead of spending millions of dollars in absurd wars. Medical brigades: a collaborative effort Military doctors and dentists treat hundreds of patients Annual training A great need for medical services Medical brigades are “invaluable” because they provide the opportunity for military doctors and dentists from partner nations, such as Honduras, to work together, said U.S. Army Capt. Vicki English, a MEDEL member. English is a veteran of several medical brigades, according to a statement from the U.S. Embassy in Honduras. “We were part of an exercise to validate JTF-B’s relief efforts; we all worked together,” English said, according to the statement. “Many of these people usually do not have health care within reach. For many of them, it is the first time they have been seen by medical staff.” center_img Hundreds of Hondurans of all ages gathered around a shabby, wooden building in the department of Gracias a Dios, where military personnel set up a makeshift medical clinic. The military doctors and dentists, along with representatives from the Honduran Health Department, worked under difficult conditions, with no air conditioning, in a hot and humid climate, according to U.S. Army Lt. Col. Hu Luu, MEDEL commander for JTF-Bravo. Luu was quoted in the JTFB website. The doctors, dentists, health department workers, and volunteers “often worked all day without stopping to rest or eat,” Luu said, according to the website. Military physicians provided routine check-ups and treated patients with diarrhea, high blood pressure, respiratory conditions, skin infections, nutrition disorders, and chronic diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure. Military dentists provided cleanings and treated infections. Military doctors and dentists also provided classes on hygiene, nutrition, basic gynecology. There are virtually no roads in the region. Some patients walked more than 10 kilometers for medical and dental care. Patients expressed their gratitude to the doctors, dentists, and volunteers, Luu said. “People are grateful that we care enough to come, listen, and provide consultations,” Luu told the website. The military doctors and dentists provided services which are greatly needed in Honduras. Honduras has an average of 8.7 doctors per 10,000 inhabitants, which places it in last place among Central American countries, according to a report prepared in 2011 by the National Commission for the Defense of Human Rights in Honduras (CONADEH). Most of these doctors are concentrated in urban areas, according to the report. There are no doctors in at least 74 of the 298 Honduran municipalities, where more than 500,000 people live. . “There is so much need for medical care in these regions that often the only way that people can access health care is by swimming across rivers or walking through swamps,” said Dr. Yuki Pravia Navas, a Honduran general practioner. By Dialogo January 12, 2014 The Honduran Health Ministry and the Armed Forces of Honduras (FAH) recently collaborated with the U.S. Southern Command’s (SOUTHCOM) Joint Task Force-Bravo’s Medical Element (MEDEL) to provide medical care to hundreds of people in two remote villages. The Honduran and U.S. soldiers delivered the care from Dec. 2-5, 2013, during a Medical Readiness Education and Training Exercise (MEDRETE). A team of Honduran and U.S. military physicians combined their skills to provide basic health care to more than 1,200 people in the communities of Auka and Tipimuna, two remote regions in the municipality of Gracias a Dios, officials said. Joint Task Force Bravo (JTF-B) is based at the Soto Cano military base in Honduras. JTF-B transported medical supplies, equipment, military physicians and dentists and support personnel to the villages. last_img read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A drug addict believed to be responsible for a spate of 18 knife-point robberies on Long Island over the past three months was arrested immediately after robbing another store in Huntington Station on Monday night, police said.Shane Cashmore, 30, who is homeless but has connections to Lake Ronkonkoma, will be arraigned in both Nassau and Suffolk counties on 18 counts of first-degree robbery, officials said. While being escorted out of the 2nd Precinct in Huntington Tuesday morning, Cashmore told reporters that he suffered from heroin addiction.“We have no doubt that Mr. Cashmore is responsible for these 18 robberies and we are glad to bring this spree to an end,” said Suffolk County Police Commissioner Timothy Sini during a joint press conference with acting Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter.Two other suspects were also arrested Monday night—Juliana Panteleone, 31, and Paul Drab, 26, both of Levittown—but authorities did not elaborate on their roles in the robberies. They were charged only for the Monday night robbery in Huntington Station in which they were described as getaway drivers.At the time of their arrest, Panteleone was preparing to inject herself with heroin, authorities said. Sini noted that there was evidence that suspects were suffering from substance abuse and “likely committing robberies to fuel their addiction.” The investigation is continuing.Cashmore is accused of robbing 18 businesses across the Island from Feb. 13 through May 1. Stores he allegedly hit included Carvel, Subway, Baskin Robin, TCBY, Dunkin’ Donuts, and The Barn, among others, police said.“Over these several months and weeks, small business owners and workers at these small businesses have been on edge, but today they can rest a little more peacefully,” said Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas.The big break in the case came in mid-April when investigators learned that Cashmore had been driving a rare Hyundai model called the Tiburon, which was only in production between 1999 and 2008.Police began looking into each of the 200 Tiburon’s registered in New York City and Long Island and were briefing individual officer’s when one came forward with information about an arrest he made in March that fit the description of the car, a 2006 version, in which Drab was driving. Drab was charged with possession of a controlled substance for that incident.The car, which was registered by Panteleone, was placed under around-the-clock surveillance, and authorities followed the car’s every movement: when the suspects took cans to scrap, to New York City, and to Panteleone’s place of work.Investigators followed that car Monday night to Oyster Bay, but the suspects became spooked by officers in the vicinity and instead drove to Huntington Station. After Cashmore allegedly committed his 18th robbery, he was immediately placed under arrest, police said.Krumpter said they were unable to prevent Sunday’s robbery in Lake Ronkonkoma because the car wasn’t used.Sini and Krumpter said their respective department’s willingness to work in tandem created an environment that contributed to Monday night’s arrests.The collaborative efforts of Nassau’s Robbery Squad and Suffolk’s Pattern Crime Unit is a “model” of how such investigations should work.In the first two cases attributed to the suspect, he allegedly robbed a Carvel in South Farmingdale 20 minutes after trying to rob a Dunkin’ Donuts five miles away in Seaford, police have said.last_img read more

But it can also be difficult to lead a team that you don’t see in the office every day. Several leaders have expressed frustration that some of their team members aren’t as responsive or lack follow through since they have been working from home during the pandemic. The lack of personal interaction can make it more challenging to check in with team members who don’t seem to be pulling their weight.So how do you instill a sense of ownership and accountability in a virtual environment?Establish goals and outcomes. Although there may be fewer distractions—chatty coworkers, ad hoc meetings, etc.—when employees are working from home, it also can be challenging to focus. As a leader, it is important to set clear goals, outcomes and deadlines for projects and tasks so that each of your team members know exactly what your expectations are. Focusing on outcomes allows an employee to take ownership of a task or project and relieves you from having to micromanage the process. When setting a desired outcome, think about what the end result should look like and communicate that to the employee. At the beginning of the week, communicate exactly what you are expecting each team member to complete, the due date and how they should submit their work.last_img read more

first_imgNow General Manager Ryan Rennells is making a promise to the community Home Central has served for more than a decade. He says it’s too early for a timeline as to when the Vestal store will be rebuilt and back up and running, but they are currently working on picking up the pieces and sorting through what’s next. “We keep a warm room area for products that can’t freeze out in our warehouse, and we think it started there but we don’t know yet,” said Rennells. He says the people are a huge reason to stay positive. The blaze destroyed the store’s warehouse and took hours to put out. “We kind of pride ourselves to be that local hometown hardware store and so it’s important to us,” he said. “We wouldn’t be in business without the support of our community and we try a lot to give that support back out to them, so it means the world.” The cause of the fire is still under investigation. VESTAL (WBNG) — Late last week, flames ripped through the Vestal Home Central location on Stage Street. “It was really important that we had to go forward solution for them, so we brought all of the employees over here to Owego or our Candor location,” said Rennells. Now, Rennells and Home Central are vowing to give back. “They’ve got families to feed and we feel like we do good in the community.” The fire broke out Thursday afternoon. “It was a gut punch. It hurt. It didn’t seem real. I was actually out of town at the time at a buying show and you feel helpless, you’re so far away from home. We got back as quick as we could and started to take care of all of the pieces that we needed to to rebuild,” said Rennells. Thankfully, nobody was hurt. In the meantime, Rennells encourages people to come out to both the Owego and Candor locations. “We’re going to rebuild. We’ll be back. As quick as they let us,” said Rennells.

first_imgCruise ships Thus, according to the data from the official website of the Port of Dubrovnik Authority, 58 ships will enter Dubrovnik in the mentioned period, which should bring about 70.000 passengers, or a tolerable 460 passengers on average per day. But let’s go in order. Image by Ivan Bagic from Pixabay Flights will not return to normal until March next year, when all seven destinations will re-establish continuity in rotations towards Dubrovnik. According to available information, out of a total of about 50 hotels, about 10 of them should be open in Dubrovnik during the winter, possibly slightly less, while the capacities in private accommodation will be mostly closed. The exception is about 10 days between Christmas and the Feast of the Three Kings, when better occupancy is expected, so in that period can be expected to put on the market a larger number of capacities in private accommodation. Dubrovnik is one of the Croatian destinations that has all the realistic prerequisites for extending the tourist season.  If there are no events in the destination, at least according to the state of the CALENDAR OF EVENTS at the end of November, then it is completely logical that there is no interest in the destination, which consequently leads to a lack of winter airlines. Also, why the CALENDAR OF EVENTS if it is not harmonized between the competent institutions? Although it is difficult to get accurate data, it is estimated that out of a total of more than 600 catering facilities, by the end of the DUBROVNIK WINTER FESTIVAL (November 30.11.2019, 06.01.2020 – January 50, XNUMX), a smaller number will be open. Thus, only about XNUMX restaurants should be open. It is also to be expected that after the end of the FESTIVAL, most of them will close their doors, mostly by the beginning of March next year. Just for comparison, Venice, with which Dubrovnik is often compared, will be directly connected to a total of 60 world destinations in the same period. The question arises, how should a casual traveler cope in such a confusing situation? Respecting the effort and effort that the City of Dubrovnik is investing in order to make positive changes, objectively there is still a lot of room for better winter business. The key lies in the agreement of the public and private sectors, their joint agreement on the strategic goal that Dubrovnik must have a year-round tourism business. Continuously. The action plan that would follow should define tasks, activities, mutual obligations with the corresponding schedule of activities… Honest approach to this issue, creating an experience in the destination and better air connectivity would, among other things, certainly create the preconditions for such, better winter business. Regarding the number of destinations with which Dubrovnik will be connected by direct flights during the winter period 2019/2020, it is a total of seven. Here we are talking about an identical number of destinations compared to last year, not a single new one, with the difference that Madrid was “dropped” from the list, but now Athens is appearing in Greece. However, what is worrying are the interruptions in rotations in the period when they should be the least, and that is the period of January and February. Namely, there were not so many long breaks last winter in the same period. Thus, Vueling from Barcelona interrupts its rotations towards Dubrovnik in the period 06.01.2020-15.02.2020, which makes a total of 41 days, then again British Airways in the period from 14.01.2020 – 11.02.2020, which makes a total of 29 days, Vueling from Athens in the period 05.01.2020 – 24.02.2020, ie a total of 50 days, while Vueling from Rome interrupts its rotations towards Dubrovnik in the period from 08.01.2020 – 15.02.2020, which makes a total of 38 days. Nominally, Dubrovnik will be connected to seven world destinations during the winter period 2019/2020, while in reality during November and December 2019 there will be occasional interruptions in rotations from several destinations, while during January and February next year the interruptions will be more significant. , so that in that period Dubrovnik will remain continuously connected by direct airlines with only 3 world destinations, namely Frankfurt, Istanbul and Warsaw. For cruises in the period November 2019 – March 2020, the ships will enter Dubrovnik with reduced intensity and no higher numbers are expected, which is expected for the mentioned period. Approaching the end of November, the question arises as to what and how much has been done in order to be as ready as possible for the Dubrovnik tourist winter. How many, in fact, new direct winter airlines have been established, how many hotels and restaurants will be open during the winter, how many and what kind of events, how many ships will dock for cruises during that period…? Photo: Pixabay.com Istanbul and Frankfurt are significant regional hubs (HUB network of lines), through which Dubrovnik is accessible to guests from remote parts of the world during the winter. However, compared to direct air connectivity, connectivity via such hubs implies, among other things, higher travel costs, which ultimately increases the cost of the overall arrangement per passenger. Photo: Pixabay.com According to all of the above, an average Dubrovnik tourist winter awaits us, without a dramatically larger increase in the volume of work compared to previous years. The greatest intensity of work should traditionally take place between Christmas and the Feast of the Three Kings, followed by a decline in the fact that the DUBROVNIK WINTER FESTIVAL will close its doors. Hotels Restaurants Given the already mentioned situation around direct winter lines and calendar of events, it remains to be seen how many winter physical indicators will be in question, and whether the planned number of beds will be sufficient to accommodate all guests who intend to visit Dubrovnik in winter. AUTHOR: Tonći Skvrce Direct winter flights Unfortunately, when it comes to winter direct air connectivity, another post-season was missed without concrete initiatives aimed at increasing the number of direct winter air routes, which objectively leaves no preconditions for a significant increase in physical and financial indicators. Following this, the City of Dubrovnik has designed a very clear CALENDAR OF EVENTS, which can be found on their website. However, although it is already the end of November, the CALENDAR OF EVENTS for the period 01.11. 2019 – 31.03. 2020 is still half empty, with the proviso that in the period from 05.01.2019 – 31.03.2019 there is not a single planned event. To make the confusion bigger, the CALENDAR OF EVENTS on the pages of the Tourist Board of the City of Dubrovnik does not correspond to the one on the pages of the City of Dubrovnik, which is further confusing. It remains to be seen whether individual tour operators, as announced, will have a reason to “raise” charters to Dubrovnik, what volume will be discussed, and what can Dubrovnik expect from these operations at all? Calendar of winter events Until such an agreement is reached, we are left with missed opportunities for the realization of jobs of lower intensity during the winter, but jobs of continuity. Instead of better ones, half-results thus become generally accepted. What else to say but – a shame. It is to be hoped that the situation from previous years will not be repeated, when visitors to the historic core had problems finding open catering facilities during January and February. Conclusion Comparing the number of rotations, it is clear that November and December 2019 will have a slightly higher number of rotations compared to the same period in 2018, which is great. Namely, during the same period last year, Vueling from Barcelona had major interruptions in rotations, a total of 45 days in a “piece”, British Airlines from London a total of 35 days, and Vueling from Rome a total of 45 days. According to official data from the Dubrovnik Airport website, there will also be interruptions in rotations this November and December, but less. Thus, only British Airlines will have a longer break lasting a total of 32 days in a row (November 07.11 – December 08.12.2019, 10), while Vueling from Barcelona will have a break in rotations to Dubrovnik of XNUMX days in mid-November this year. As for the winter of 2019/2020, it is clear from all the above that the preconditions for better physical and financial results will only be partially met. As for open restaurants, it is expected that most of them will close as the year progresses, regardless of the stimulating decision of the City of Dubrovnik regarding the exemption from paying rent for public areas of caterers who are mainly engaged in serving food (restaurants, taverns, pizzerias) in the historic core, if they carry out their activities from 1 December 2019 to 29 February 2020. A prerequisite for any meaningful business during the winter period, in parallel with the establishment of a network of winter direct lines, should be quality programs, national and international cultural and other projects, which would be the reason for the arrival of guests at the destination.

first_imgCategories: Editorial, OpinionI have a New Year’s confession.I retweeted President Donald Trump with approval, not something I had expected to do, especially on the subject of Iran.But Trump has been right to get behind the brave Iranian protesters calling for political and economic change. These are the largest popular protests since the Iranian uprising in 2009 against a fraudulent election. I was in an enormous crowd (estimated in the millions) that marched from Tehran’s Enghelab (Revolution) Square to Azadi (Freedom) Square three days after the vote.Fear evaporated in that throng.I asked a young woman to whom I’d been talking what her name was. “My name is Iran,” she replied. The memory still gives me goose bumps.For a few days, the Islamic republic stood on a knife’s edge.I have often asked myself what would have happened if Mir Hussein Moussavi, the leader of the reformist Green Movement who was later placed under house arrest, had told that crowd to march on the seats of power in the name of the ballot box over theocratic whim.Signs of disarray were palpable before the regime led by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei cracked down through the thugs of the Basij militia. The tweet in question read:  As I wrote at the time, “There’s nothing more repugnant than seeing women being hit by big men armed with clubs and the license of the state.”In Tehran, then, the silence of the Obama White House was deafening: too little, too late. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed regret over this in 2014.Excessive caution was the mother of the Obama administration’s worst failures, not least in Syria.The slippery slope school of foreign policy has its limitations. Inaction, in the name of the ninth unanswerable “And then what?” question from the president, is as emphatic a statement as action.President Vladimir Putin, among other American rivals, took note.So Trump — even if he understands little or nothing of Iran, even if his talk of Iranian “human rights” sounds hollow from a sometime advocate of torture, even if his support of the Iranian people today is grotesque from the man who has wrongheadedly barred most Iranians from entering the United States — is right to speak up in solidarity and tweet that the “wealth of Iran is being looted” by a “brutal and corrupt Iranian regime.” It is.Given where American-Iranian relations stand, there is not much downside to this bluntness. The Revolution that promised Iranians freedom in 1979 has withered.The monopoly of force will probably be enough to sustain the Islamic republic.A crackdown is probable at some point. The real crisis of the regime will likely come at the moment of Khamenei’s succession.Still, the courage of Iranians should never be underestimated, nor the deep roots of their quest for freedom, and anything is possible.What has not changed since 2009 is the bravery of Iranians.I watched in awe as women stood their ground and faced down baton-wielding police officers.Today, protesters are chanting that Khamenei should go. They are chanting death to the Revolutionary Guards. They are chanting, “Independence, freedom, Iranian republic.” Among the most powerful slogans of demonstrators have been those expressing fury at money wasted in Syria, Lebanon and elsewhere when President Hassan Rouhani had promised jobs, not more of the surrogate wars of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.The demonstrations, this time, are different.They are smaller, but more widespread. They reflect the economic woes of the working class more than middle-class disaffection.They are happening, as Karim Sadjadpour has pointed out in The Atlantic, in an Iran of 48 million smartphones, against fewer than 1 million in 2009 (which is why the regime is trying to block the hugely popular Telegram messaging app).They originated in Mashhad and went on to Qom, two traditional regime strongholds — a sign of the regime’s ideological bankruptcy.The West-leaning middle class, fed up with the hypocrisy of the mullahs, has long sought political change.But the working class has been a pillar of the regime — manipulated with handouts and slogans. If they have shifted now, all the aging Khamenei has left is the Revolutionary Guards and the Basij. Trump’s White House should keep up the pressure.It should bring European allies in behind its condemnation and warnings.It should stop berating the nuclear deal, which gave Iranians hope and deprives the regime of a convenient scapegoat (it could always say times were hard because of Western sanctions).It should not, whatever happens, impose new sanctions: They only benefit the Revolutionary Guards.And it should learn, finally, that Iran is not, as Steve Bannon told Joshua Green, “like the fifth century — completely primeval” — but rather a sophisticated society of deep culture full of unrealized promise better served by engagement than estrangement.Roger Cohen is an op-ed columnist with the International New York Times.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more

The Netherlands has reported 2,460 cases including 76 deaths. The prime minister went to a supermarket on Thursday to promise Dutch people that there would be no shortages of one key commodity: toilet paper. The Dutch medical care minister resigned on Thursday after collapsing from what he said was exhaustion during a debate in parliament on the coronavirus outbreak.Bruno Bruins, whose responsibilities included dealing with the pandemic, fainted while standing at a lectern in parliament on Wednesday night and had to be helped to his feet.”The king has granted this resignation in the most honorable manner… with gratitude for the many and important services rendered” by Bruins, said a royal palace statement. “We have enough… we can all poop for ten years,” Rutte said.center_img Topics :last_img read more

first_img Published on April 28, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ For Katie Hursey, this weekend is one that has remained highlighted, circled and underlined on the calendar for a very long time. With the anticipation piling up, Hursey can’t help but feel a few butterflies in her stomach. But in Hursey’s mind, that’s a good thing. ‘I’m usually pretty nervous right before the race,’ Hursey said. ‘But it works. Usually, when I’m not nervous is when I don’t do well. I think it’s just adrenaline. Once the gun goes off, I’m able to breathe.’The Big East Outdoor Championships begin this Friday in Cincinnati. With the meet just a few days away and Syracuse looking to improve its ninth- (men) and 12th- (women) place finishes last season, runners have been looking forward to this weekend all season. And good health and calm nerves will be two things on the minds of the team before they begin the meet.Hursey is coming off her best time of the season at the Penn Relays this past weekend in the 4×1500-meter relay event with a split of 4:26.9. Riding a bit of recent momentum, she is eyeing a top-three finish in the 5000-meter run this weekend.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd Hursey isn’t the only one coming into the meet prepared and confident, looking forward to the opportunities this weekend presents. ‘I try not to think much about anything unless it’s about the race,’ graduate sprinter Antoine Clark said. ‘I try to visualize my race and I try to visualize myself being aggressive. I try to visualize me winning the race. I wouldn’t say meditate, I would say focus.’Clark, whose 10.84 and 22.06 marks in the 100- and 200-meter dash events this past weekend at the Cornell Big Red Invitational earned him qualifying trips to both the Big East championship and IC4A Outdoor Championships, understands the value of late-season preparation. For Clark, the Cornell meet was the last confidence builder of the season. He knows he needs to hold himself to a higher standard to reach his full potential in the conference championships.In regard to this weekend, Clark is focusing on being more aggressive at the start of the race to ensure stronger times and smoother finishes. That’s the primary focus as he attempts to help SU improve upon last season’s results.‘I want to go there and do pretty well,’ Clark said. ‘I’m looking (to) set a standard for myself for everything after that meet. I’m going to have to be much more aggressive, whether I have faster people in my heats or not. It’s up to me. That’s how it’s always been and that’s how it will be.’As a current sophomore making his second trip to the conference championships, hurdler Matthew Callanan feels much more confident getting ready for big events his second time around. He is able to center himself for longer, and staying cool before a race has come much more naturally.‘During my warmups, I try to build up to the race and to a point where I’m mentally excited and ready to run,’ Callanan said. ‘Then right before, I take a minute to clear my mind and relax. There’s nothing more you can do, so just get ready to run fast.’Since competing in more collegiate events, Callanan is getting better at channeling feelings of excitement before a race and being able to eliminate pressure to perform. This weekend, he is looking to match his 14.84 qualifying mark in the 110-meter hurdles in hopes of reaching the finals. Whether you’re a sprinter, hurdler or long-distance runner, keeping control of your nerves is always the first order of business. Assistant coach Dave Hegland is a big advocate of maintaining a cool head. ‘There’s some technical things that just don’t happen when you’re tensed up,’ Hegland said. ‘One thing you don’t want to do is try and do something out of the ordinary. We want to go in there and represent Syracuse really well.’[email protected]center_img Commentslast_img read more

first_imgCHICAGO — Ronnie Arrow felt the itch. Having sat out from coaching for two years on a self-imposed sabbatical, the former South Alabama coach was ready to get back to coaching. He and his wife decided by the time their brand-new house was built, he would have a job back on the sidelines.”I was hungry; I was out of coaching for two years,” Arrow said. “My spark was back, and I was ready to go.” Right on cue, with his new home only three weeks from completion, Arrow — with a little help from his friend Tim Floyd — was hired as the new head coach of upstart Texas A&M Corpus Christi.When No. 2-seeded Wisconsin takes the floor Friday afternoon against No. 15 Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, the Badgers will be taking on an opponent that has built itself up from nothing in only nine years. “That’s very impressive. It says a lot about the coach and the coaching staff and the players that are there, how focused they are, how willing they are to buy into the system,” UW senior guard Kammron Taylor said. “Probably a couple years ago, nobody would ever have thought they would be here. So it’s a good story to see them here playing in the tournament.”Just nine years ago, TAMUCC didn’t even have a basketball team. They only had a dream, a hope of one day hosting big time college basketball. That dream comes true Friday, as the Islanders — in only their eighth year of play, and in just their first year of non-independent status — have reached the small-school mountaintop: the NCAA tournament.”We are very thrilled to be here; we paved the way to be here,” said senior Taurean Mitchell, a native of Corpus Christi. “I’ve been here four years. [Now] we have a chance.”It wasn’t easy starting from scratch. “This program has been my baby, from the embryo stage on to now,” Arrow said. “Nine years ago, we had nothing. We had no logo; we didn’t have pencils and papers. I was in four different offices. … We had nothing.”Nothing but a coach. Next, the school needed a team. That part wasn’t too difficult, as the island university in many ways sells itself.”Our university is on an island right on the Gulf of Mexico,” Arrow said. “They can go 25 yards out of their apartments and catch supper. It’s a beautiful, beautiful place. We can sell Texas A&M Corpus Christi.”Senior guard Josh Ervin put it a little bit differently.”It’s really sunny, we’ve got some great weather, pretty ladies and everything,” Ervin said. Once the school had players and a coach, they needed a place to play. That’s when things really got hard. Playing in an ice rink with a floor over it in a chilly make-shift arena referred to by Arrow as “The Cold Dome” — cold enough to see your breath — the Islanders weren’t exactly playing in Madison Square Garden. “We’d drive-by recruits,” Arrow said. “We’d say ‘That’s where we play,’ and keep on going. There was no way we were showing them that place.”The team finally received a more fitting home in 2004, when the American Bank Center was completed, with the team playing its first game there Nov. 6.”It may not be as big, but it’s nice as any place in the country,” Arrow said. The school had a coach, a team and now an arena. Now they needed success. While playing in the purgatory that is Division-I Independent play, the Islanders had flirted with .500 in their first five years. However, in the 2004-05 season, the team won 20 games, and then repeated the following season, becoming the first Independent school since Notre Dame in 1989 to accomplish the feat. But for all of its hard work, all Corpus Christi could get as a reward was a long vacation, something the Islanders would gladly trade for an invitation to a post-season tournament. Despite the 20-win seasons, an invitation didn’t come.”The guys who came to our university the past eight years had no chance,” Arrow said. “For the past two years, we were the first Independent since ’89 with Notre Dame … to have back-to-back 20-win seasons, but we didn’t have a chance to get into [the postseason].”The players were equally frustrated.”The first three years I was here that we weren’t in a conference, we went 20-8 and still didn’t get a bid anywhere,” Ervin said. “We really wanted to prove to a lot of people that Texas A&M Corpus Christi can really play some basketball.”This year, the Islanders get their chance, gaining admission to the Southland conference. The team promptly showed its gratitude for being added to the league by going 26-6, taking the regular-season Southland title, winning the conference tournament and stealing the automatic-bid to the NCAA tournament in just its first year.”We are so appreciative of being able to get into the Southland Conference,” Arrow said. “We don’t want to wait for any more committees to invite us; we invited ourselves.”Now, Corpus Christi finds itself in a dream position, with the chance, finally, to dance and to knock off one of the nation’s premier schools. “This is a one-shot deal; this isn’t a series and on any given night,” Arrow added. “We understand that in the history of the NCAA tournament only four times has a 15 (seed) beat a two (seed), and we hope to be No. 5.”The Badgers realize their opponent cannot be taken lightly at all, or else UW could find itself as the latest seemingly impossible mission accomplished by TAMUCC.”Our eyes are open. It’s not like a non-conference game or a regular-season game; … anyone can knock you out,” senior forward Alando Tucker said. “You can’t overlook any opponent, and we recognize that.”In truth, it would be an act of pure wonderment for Wisconsin to overlook a program that has to garner so much respect for the amazing job of rising not from the ashes, but from the dirt itself to become an NCAA tournament team. “You do it with hard work and perseverance and because in America you can,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said.Nine years ago, Arrow was working on completing a house. Now he is looking to complete building his program. The Badgers had better be ready.”I know and respect the job that they do,” said Arrow. “But we’re comin’ to play.”last_img read more

first_imgUW\’s Keaton Nankivil gets a hand on a jump ball, while guard Trevon Hughes watches to the right. Hughes played only 24 minutes after picking up two early fouls in the first half of Wisconsin\’s win.[/media-credit]When the Wisconsin offense struggled recently, it seemed as if it were only a matter of time until the Badgers would find their rhythm and go on a hot shooting streak.That time came Tuesday night.On a night when No. 5 Michigan State shot just 37 percent overall and 22.2 percent from beyond the arc, the 16th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers made better than 50 percent of their shots and 34.6 from 3-point land.After shooting as low as 34 percent from the field and 16.7 percent beyond the arc against Michigan on Jan. 20, the Badgers have shot better of late, hitting more than 40 percent of their shots in the four games.Never one to overreact to something positive or negative, UW head coach Bo Ryan noted that shooting streaks are simply a part of the game of basketball.“Some games we can’t buy a bucket early, some games you get on a little run,” Ryan said. “You just have to stay even-keeled with your players. And the players have to stay that way and have to believe that if we get an open look, we’re going to shoot it.”Wisconsin had plenty of open looks in both halves, but the Badgers were especially effective before halftime.On 15 first-half attempts, UW shot 40 percent, hitting six threes. Michigan State, on the other hand, missed its only 3-point attempt in the first half.Coupled with 15-of-27 shooting overall before the break, the Badgers’ hot hand gave them a 38-23 lead over the Tom Izzo-led Spartans, which entered the game a perfect 9-0 in Big Ten play.As they have in the past against highly ranked opponents, Wisconsin jumped out to an impressive lead early, pushing the score to 10-1 in the first four minutes before MSU made a field goal in the game.“It got the crowd into the game and threes are better than dunks because dunks only count two and threes count three,” Izzo said. “Early, we have to look to ourselves, give them credit, they made open shots… [but] for whatever reason, we didn’t play with the energy we normally play with defensively.”Making the Badgers’ hot shooting even more surprising is the fact senior guard and captain Trevon Hughes sat out the final 16:57 of the half after picking up his second foul.In that way, the Wisconsin-Michigan State matchup took on a similar feel to the Badgers’ win over then-No. 4 Purdue on Jan. 9. Against the Boilermakers, Hughes went out within the first five minutes as well, forcing fellow guards Jordan Taylor and Jason Bohannon to step up and carry the load.They did just that, scoring 12 points apiece in the first half.According to Taylor, the team never doubted itself when Hughes went out just over three minutes into the game.“We just try to stay aggressive and try to make something happen.”One play in particular that demonstrated just how well the night was going for the Badgers offensively came late in the second half when Taylor hit a contested three as the shot clock wound down.Bohannon dribbled around for much of the possession trying to find a shot or an open teammate. Finally, with under five to shoot, he found Taylor on a pass that was nearly intercepted by an MSU defender before the 6-foot-1 guard from Bloomington, Minn., hit the 3-point attempt to make it 58-42 and all but seal the UW victory.According to Bohannon, his pass was one that assistant coach Howard Moore criticized as he let it go, but ended up working out for the Badgers.“I was trying to make a play and see what happened. … I saw Jordan out of the corner of my eye and I threw it as quick as I could,” Bohannon said. “I usually don’t hear things on the floor, but I heard Coach Moore yelling at me in the background, ‘What kind of pass was that?’“Luckily [Taylor] got it, and it wasn’t picked and went the other way and Jordan hit a three.”Wisconsin’s aggressiveness, along with excellent shooting all night, allowed the Badgers to overcome two things that usually lead to losses: a lack of both rebounds and free throws.As in two of their three Big Ten losses, the Badgers were outrebounded by the Spartans — by a margin of 33-26 — and shot fewer free throws (four) than Michigan State made (13) in the game, a stat that is typically reversed when UW plays at the Kohl Center.Wisconsin made up for its poor performance on the boards and lack of trips to the line with its usual excellent ball security. Heading into the game, UW led the nation with only 9.4 turnovers per game, while Taylor’s +3.89 assist-to-turnover ratio also is the nation’s best.The Badgers turned the ball over just five times in the game Tuesday night, compared to 13 for Michigan State. As a result, UW finished with a 17-4 advantage in points off turnovers.“When you get 17-5 assist-to-turnover ratios and they’re 11-13, that’s 13 times they’re not getting a shot at the basket and only five for us,” Taylor said. “You just try to make the right decision and… it’s pretty easy when (Ryan) pretty much tells us what to do.”last_img read more

first_img“I can’t help you.”The words sent ice down her spine. Then-junior Kelsey Reinhardt sat across the desk from Dr. TJ Rai, a psychiatrist who was supposed to have all the answers. He was at a loss for words. He didn’t know what to tell her.Reinhardt had spent seven years hiding — hiding an eating disorder and an addiction to exercise — and she was done. Now, she just wanted to get better. And he was telling her that he couldn’t help.Rai explained that without inpatient treatment, it would be nearly impossible to administer proper care to Reinhardt. Already underweight, she had lost 10 pounds in the three weeks leading up to sorority recruitment. Every effort she made over the past two years at USC to shed the eating disorder had failed.To change, Reinhardt needed to get out.“I was the kid who loved school, who never even thought it was an option to not go to school,” Reinhardt said. “To consider taking a semester off … That was terrifying to me. It just wasn’t done. It wasn’t even on my radar.”She made the decision on a Friday — she needed a break. That morning, Reinhardt contacted her adviser and began filing for a leave of absence. The next week, she informed each of her professors in person that she was leaving to seek inpatient treatment. She told only a few close friends, then packed her clothes and left her life behind.That day was the beginning of a transformation for Reinhardt. Now a senior, she credits her ongoing recovery from anorexia and depression to the inpatient treatment she received during her leave of absence.According to David Glasgow, assistant vice provost for undergraduate programs, 273 undergraduate students take leaves of absence from USC each year. This makes up about 1.4 percent of the undergraduate population. Yet students such as Reinhardt who do take a leave find that this time off has the potential to be life-changing.For Reinhardt, it was a period of growth, of refocusing. She first developed an eating disorder as a freshman in high school. Throughout high school, her sense of self-worth intertwined itself with the way she viewed her weight.It didn’t matter how much weight she lost. When Reinhardt looked in the mirror, she saw a body that was still too fat. By the time she came to USC, Reinhardt’s eating disorder was the axis of her life.“When you have an eating disorder, it’s like another person, someone who’s not you but who controls a huge part of your life,” Reinhardt said. “It was the focus of my life. It gave me control, it gave me this feeling that if I could control this part of who I was, I could succeed.”In her sophomore year, Reinhardt was depressed and fatigued from malnutrition. In an attempt to improve her situation, Reinhardt threw herself into her academics and her sorority life. But staying busy only made it easier to rationalize the continuation of the disorder that was tearing her apart.The secret had become too heavy to carry around on a day-to-day basis. During Thanksgiving break, Reinhardt’s parents finally asked what was wrong. She told them everything. They had no way to completely understand what was going on inside their daughter’s brain. But they tried, and Reinhardt loved them for the support they gave.“With my family, it was a lot of educating at first,” Reinhardt said. “My dad would tell me to just eat more, to just put on some weight. They didn’t have the slightest idea what to do, they just knew that we had to do something, we had to change this.”What came next was a long series of failed attempts to find a solution.First, Reinhardt tried a combination of meeting with a dietician and non-specialized therapist for seven months. It wasn’t enough. Reinhardt wasn’t tracking her weight, but she didn’t need to see a number on the scale to know that she wasn’t improving. So she moved on to the next option, intensive outpatient therapy.Her time in this program lasted for only a week. At the end of the week, the program director told her that there was nothing outpatient treatment could do for Reinhardt. She needed constant monitoring to restructure her eating and exercise habits.So in October of her sophomore year, Reinhardt left behind her life at USC and checked into Center for Discovery, an intensive inpatient treatment facility.“I was too far gone at that point,” Reinhardt said. “I needed time where all I was thinking about, all I was focused on, was getting better. I needed time more than anything else.”Reinhardt left with a single intention — to rid herself of the eating disorder that had dominated the last six years of her life. This is the type of action that is suggested by counselors at the Engemann Health Center when students take a leave of absence.Dr. Kelly Greco, the Engemann Center’s interim assistant director of outreach services, believes that students should only take the break when their mental health concerns threaten their ability to function as a student. At that time, she hopes that students will use their time off for appropriate therapy or treatment programs.“It’s critical for the student to be doing what is best in order to return them to a state where they can come back to school and succeed as quickly as possible,” Greco said. “That means surrounding themselves with positive people and seeking whatever treatment they need. It’s a purposeful break.”Reinhardt’s time off was intentional, exactly as Greco would hope. For three months, she lived alongside other women with eating disorders. At Center for Discovery, every meal was planned. Each day revolved around intense therapy sessions focused on reshaping the way Reinhardt approached her lifestyle.When she returned to USC in the spring, life felt off-kilter at first, but Reinhardt felt a new sense of motivation. She studied abroad in Italy over the summer and took on the position of vice president of recruitment for her sorority. She stayed healthy. The time off had made its impact.Though she’s made improvements, Reinhardt emphasizes that she isn’t “fixed.” She’s still working to bring certain foods that she had forbidden herself from eating — french fries, meats — back into her diet. But for Reinhardt, this process would never have started without taking time to focus on her mental health.Most importantly, Reinhardt is happy now.“I don’t want to think where I would be today if I hadn’t taken that time off,” Reinhardt said. “It gave me a chance to breathe. I didn’t want the eating disorder, [and] I still don’t want it. I want to be healthy. And you come to a point where you have to choose to put that health ­— that goal of being OK again — you have to put that first.”last_img read more

first_img‘This year’s race will be organised with a gold label template because we have applied for a gold label status for next year’s race,’ said Amodu who is confident organisers will pull off another world class event on May 25,2019.‘We have the experience and the trust by the IAAF that we can deliver a world-class race. Right from the inaugural edition of the race we have proved to be up to the task as far as the technical organisation of the race isconcerned and this was recognised by the IAAF who first granted us a bronze label status in 2015,the first ever in Nigeria nay West Africa.“We also proved we can organise a label event without supervision and the result is the elevation to a silver label status,” he said.Amodu reveals organisers of the race are not unaware of the new changes that have been made to the IAAF Label regulations for 2019 and the fact that all label races must have a minimum of six men and six women from the pool of athletes whose status corresponds to the Label being applied for. This will ensure that a Gold Label race, for example, has at least 12 of the world’s 300 best specialists at that particular distance.“This will make this year’s race the most competitive in the seven year old history of the event. We are going to have a minimum of 12 gold level running athletes for this year’s race and we don’t have to start looking for them all over the world. If we can get all 12 from Kenya, so be it,” he said and believes Nigeria, in no distant future will start having athletes who fall into these categories.”The previous rules obliged label race organisers to have elite athletes from at least five countries. From 2019 that rule will no longer exist, meaning races can, a) focus on building stronger elite fields and b) aspire to a label even with domestic elite athletes who are on the pool of the required status. “Our prayer will be to have many Nigerian athletes who will fall into the gold label category or other labels for other road races in Nigeria that are yet to be granted labels or those who are yet to move from bronze label to the next stage,” he concluded.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Today marks 30 days to go until the start of the seventh Okpekpe International 10km Road Race which is scheduled top hold on Saturday, May 25 in Okpekpe, a rural, hilly town in Etsako East Local Government Area of Edo State.Zack Amodu, the race’s director of organisation has assured of a bigger and better race organised in strict accordance with International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) competition rules.The race, elevated by the IAAF to a silver label status last year will however hold with the aim of getting it upgraded to a first ever gold label road race in West Africa by next year.last_img read more

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error OAKLAND — The Clippers were not supposed to play as well Thursday as they did in a 40-point rout of Golden State on Monday in the second game of their best-of-seven Western Conference playoff series.They also entered the lion’s den that is Oracle Arena knowing full well that the fans there would be as wild and crazy as any home fans they might face. That’s not to mention the Clippers knew they had to win a game on the road after losing homecourt advantage by falling in Game 1 at home.No problem.After withstanding a furious rally by the Warriors that saw them erase all but one point off an 18-point deficit, the Clippers came away with a 98-96 victory over Golden State before a wild crowd of 19,596. The Warriors had one more chance, but Steph Curry missed badly on a 3-point attempt that would have won the game.DeAndre Jordan had 14 points and 22 rebounds for the Clippers, tying a franchise record for rebounds in a playoff game. He also blocked five shots.“DeAndre really protected the basket tonight,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.Paul scored 15 points and doled out 10 assists.Thompson led the Warriors with 26 points, Curry had 16 and Draymond Green had 13 points, 11 rebounds and one flagrant 1 foul to match the one taken by the Clippers’ Matt Barnes.“That’s not physical play,” Rivers said, when asked about the physical nature of the game. “That’s something else, and I don’t like either one of them (flagrant fouls).”The Clippers may have homecourt back, but that doesn’t mean Rivers is stoked about it.“No, we have to play better,” he said. “And I told our guys that after the game.”Rivers did not like the very idea that his team had to stave off the Warriors after they had been so dominant the first half of the third quarter before Golden State slowly but surely began to eat away at the Clippers’ lead.“I didn’t think we closed it out well,” Rivers said.Rivers liked the defense Paul played on Curry on the last shot, saying he didn’t think there was any foul.“I think it was a great play,” Rivers said. “I think Steph jumped out to try to draw the foul, but the ref’s not going to bail him out on that play.”With the momentum definitely back in the Clippers’ favor, Warriors coach Mark Jackson said he knows exactly what his team must do now.“Our job is to take care of business Sunday because we have proven we can go over there and win,” he said. The Clippers shot 46.5 percent from the field, 28.6 percent (8 of 28) from 3-point range. The Warriors shot 41.6 percent, just 19.4 percent from beyond the 3-point line.Contributing nicely for the Clippers was Jamal Crawford with 13 points; he made 3 of 6 shots from 3-point range. Warriors fans were going bananas throughout. Jackson talked about that pre-game.“These are the best fans, no secret about that,” he said. “Playoff basketball here is incredible. They’re passionate, energetic and enthusiastic. For the guys that haven’t been in a Warriors uniform prior to this year, it will be brand-new to them, and for the Clippers.“This will be different than it was in L.A., with all due respect. That being said, they (fans) will not score a basket, they won’t get a defensive stop and they won’t get a rebound. But this place will be off the charts as far as the energy in the building.”center_img The Clippers lead the series 2-1 and the teams play again Sunday afternoon.L.A. led 68-50 when J.J. Redick (14 points) buried a 3-pointer with 5:30 to play in the third quarter. When Klay Thompson banked in a six-footer with 4:22 to play, Golden State was within 87-86.But Blake Griffin, who led the Clippers with 32 points and eight rebounds, began a 7-0 Clippers run with a fallaway 17-footer. Chris Paul came back with a 12-footer and then Paul made a 3-pointer, after which he pounded his chest, for a 94-86 lead with 2:40 to play.Leading 94-88, Draymond Green was whistled for a foul on Paul, who stepped to the line and made both free throws for a 96-88 Clippers lead with 1:38 to play, seemingly sealing Golden State’s fate.Not that the Warriors threw in the towel. They again pulled within a point before Paul made one of two free throws for a 98-96 lead with 8.6 seconds left. last_img read more

first_img Emmanuel Sanders injury update: Broncos wideout (Achilles) reveals he had ankle surgery, too Theo Riddick injury update: Broncos running back out 6-8 weeks with shoulder fracture, report says “You always miss coaching, but it’s been five years,” Shanahan said. “I made the decision a long time ago, right when I got fired (by the Redskins), I said if I didn’t get the right job right away, where you had a chance to win a Super Bowl, that I was probably going to do what I’m doing, being a dad, kind of following your son, the organization, being a part of it.”Despite Shanahan being fired by the Broncos after the 2008 season, general manager John Elway — who Shanahan coached in the mid-90s — said Shanahan will always be a member of the Broncos.”Mike’s always been a big part of this organization,” Elway said. “And it’s nice to get him back out, in my mind it was never really closed, but it was nice to get the communication back — I’ve played some golf with Mike … it’s always good to see him out here because I always enjoy talking football with him … glad he was able to come back and know that this is home to him.” After his time in Denver came to an end, Shanahan coached the Redskins from 2010-13, but hasn’t coached since he was fired at the end of the 2013 season after posting a 3-13 record.Shanahan said he does miss coaching, but is content watching from the sideline now and rooting on his son, Kyle.center_img Mike Shanahan said he was gearing up to return as the Broncos’ coach before the 2018 season, but that it “didn’t work out.”Shanahan was watching son Kyle Shanahan, the current 49ers coach, play against the Broncos during Saturday’s joint practice when he made the surprise revelation. “I was close, I was close,” Shanahan said, via ESPN.com. “One thing that has to happen is you all have to be on the same page. One thing you’ve got to make sure of when you are a head football coach that the owner, the GM, the quarterback are all on the same page. And if it doesn’t happen the chances of you winning the Super Bowl aren’t very good. … I had a great conversation with John as everybody knows, it didn’t work out, sometimes it works out for the right reasons.”Shanahan was the coach of the Broncos from 1995-2008, where he led the team to 146-91 record in the regular and postseason. In 1997 and ’98, he pushed Denver to two Super Bowl wins. Related Newslast_img read more

first_imgWEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWe have drastically different types of QBs as sleepers. You could take old man Philip Rivers, rookie Drew Lock, or previously benched Andy Dalton in favorable matchups if you’re looking for a quarterback stream this week. Our sleeper D/STs and at least two of our TEs are all available on the waiver wire, too. If you read one part of our Week 15 sleepers article, we really, really, really hope it was the Perriman section. Three touchdowns was even better than we could’ve dreamed of. If you followed our Ryan Tannehill advice, that didn’t work out too bad, either. Sony Michel delivered coming off a bad week, and so did Jared Goff (eventually). Even Chris Conley found the end zone twice, and A.J. Brown was the stud we expected.Patrick Laird didn’t work out quite as well, but at least he got touches. Peyton Barber was as pedestrian as usual. And tight end wasn’t great, as Ian Thomas disappointed and David Njoku was a surprise inactive.MORE WEEK 16: Busts | Start ’em, sit ’emWeek 16 Fantasy Sleepers: Running backsTarik Cohen, Bears vs. Chiefs (Billy Heyen). Cohen’s going to be on the field a lot as the Bears very likely get involved in a passing shootout, and coming off eight carries, he might also exploit Kansas City’s poor run defense a couple of times.Adrian Peterson, Redskins vs. Giants (Vinnie Iyer). He seems to get the ball All Day, and the Giants can’t offer much resistance against him all the way through the red zone.Mike Boone, Vikings vs. Packers (Matt Lutovsky). Someone has to start at RB on Monday for the Vikings, and with Dalvin Cook (shoulder) and Alexander Mattison (ribs) banged up, it could be Boone, who ran for 56 yards and a score on 13 carries in relief of Cook last week. The Packers allow the seventh-most fantasy points to RBs, so this is a potential fantasy legend-making spot for Boone. WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWeek 16 Fantasy Football Sleepers: QuarterbacksPhilip Rivers, Chargers vs. Raiders (Heyen). The Raiders continue to have one of the league’s worst pass defenses, and Rivers has a bevy of weapons to work with. The possession passes to Keenan Allen, throws down the seam to Hunter Henry, jump balls to Mike Williams, and screens to Austin Ekeler should add up to a solid day.Andy Dalton, Bengals @ Dolphins (Iyer). He should put some numbers dueling Fitzmagic with his receivers all having good matchups, and there’s no weather worry here.Drew Lock, Broncos vs. Lions (Lutovsky). The Lions have allowed three or more passing TDs in six of the past nine games, and Lock threw for 443 yards and five TDs in his first two (non-snowy) starts. Take advantage of a collapsing Lions defense if you’re in a QB bind. WEEK 16 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPWeek 16 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Wide receiversJustin Watson, Buccaneers vs. Texans (Heyen). Breshad Perriman will get his, but as long as Chris Godwin (hamstring) is out, Watson should see eight-plus targets and produce.Breshad Perriman, Buccaneers vs. Texans (Iyer). He steps into another potential smash spot at home to be Jameis Winston’s most trusted outside target.Russell Gage, Falcons vs. Jaguars (Lutovsky). Gage was shut down in Week 15 against the 49ers, but he’s still the No. 2 receiver in a pass-happy offense. The Jaguars are reeling on defense, so Gage has a good shot to pile up receptions this week. MORE WEEK 16 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderWeek 16 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Tight endsJacob Hollister, Seahawks vs. Cardinals (Heyen). Yes, this is low-hanging (but delicious) fruit. Hollister should be played in every league possible against a defense that’s allowed more than 800 yards and 15 touchdowns to the position this season. Noah Fant, Broncos vs. Lions (Iyer). He can make multiple big plays against a defense giving up a ton and with no safety or linebacker to contain him.O.J. Howard, Buccaneers vs. Texans (Lutovsky). Yes, another Buc. Howard led the team in targets (8) last week, and Houston is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to TEs. The Bucs throw almost 40 times per game, so there will be plenty of targets to go around. MORE WEEK 16: Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tips If you haven’t heard of Mike Boone before this week, that’s understandable. But with Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison hurting, Boone is in position to be a Week 16 sleeper on Monday Night Football with fantasy football championships on the line. Of course, there are other sleepers — and you certainly wouldn’t want to play any busts — but it would take some guts to play Boone. As usual, though, it’s all about matchup and the opportunities, which is why other injury fill-ins like Breshad Perriman and O.J. Howard are listed below.Receivers Justin Watson and Russell Gage are both benefiting from increased opportunities thanks to injuries to Mike Evans/Chris Godwin and Calvin Ridley, respectively, but players don’t necessarily need to injuries for chances to shine. Tarik Cohen, for example, has a favorable matchup and could have the game script turn in his favor.  Week 16 Fantasy Sleepers: DefensesLos Angeles Chargers vs. Raiders (Heyen). Derek Carr was so poor against the Jaguars that he was booed off the field in the Raiders’ final home game in Oakland. The Chargers have a talented enough defense to keep Carr’s struggles going.Indianapolis Colts vs. Panthers (Iyer). Always use defenses going against QBs making their NFL debut, especially when those defenses are at home. Denver Broncos @ Lions (Lutovsky). Over the past four games, Detroit has allowed 15 sacks and 10 takeaways while averaging 15 offensive points per game. Denver has 10 sacks and seven takeaways in that span. With this game in Denver, expect plenty of turnovers.last_img read more

first_imgA South Florida family is searching for answers after their two-year-old daughter came home from her first day at a day care center with second-degree burns.Salma Yemmas and Hudson Michel say they dropped their daughter off to the Exploration Station on Miami Dade College’s North Campus Monday but hours later, they received a concerning phone call.Their daughter’s teacher called Yemmas to ask if she dropped her daughter off with a cut or scratch on her stomach. When Yemmas said no, the teacher told the mother not to worry and that she would take care of it.Several hours after that, day care center called Yemmas again and told her that her daughter needed to be picked up because the wound was not getting any better.Yemmas arrived at the day care to her daughter who she says was cry hysterically.I’d never seen her cry like this,” Yemmas explained. “I lift up her shirt and it’s big — skin peeled off — it’s a big wound.”Yemmas then took her daughter to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital where the staff told her that her daughter suffered a second-degree burn.On top of the diagnosis, Yemmas says she does not know what happened to her daughter because she is too young to remember and the staff who were supposed to be watching her say they did not see what happened.“They’re like, ‘We can’t say it’s a burn because we don’t know what happened.’ I said, ‘You were with my daughter. How do you not know what happened?’” Yemmas said to reporter.“Don’’ just say you don’t know,” Michel added. “You’re getting paid to watch my daughter and other kids.”While the day car declined to comment on the specific situation, they did release a statement say that the safety if their staff and the children are their top priority and that they are currently investigating the incident.last_img read more

first_img Barcelona star Lionel Messi has been linked with a move to Manchester City Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has refused to discuss fresh rumours linking Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi with an Etihad Stadium switch.Reports on Friday suggested the club had met with the Argentine ace’s agent to begin discussions over an audacious £800,000-per-week contract offer.But, following successive defeats, City boss Pellegrini insists Saturday’s clash with Southampton is his priority, not fuelling speculation over a Messi mega-deal.Asked about the Messi offer claims at his latest press conference, Pellegrini said: “I don’t talk about rumours. I think every manager in the world would like Lionel Messi.”When pressed further, Pellegrini – who was similarly reluctant to talk about reports linking Pep Guardiola with his job – said simply: “I think we must win against Southampton.”The Blues boss also confirmed he will have to make do without Joe Hart for the Southampton clash, with the England goalkeeper set for around ten days out with a hamstring injury picked up in the Champions League.The absence of Hart means third-choice Richard Wright, the 38-year-old former England international, will be on the City bench. He last played in the top flight for Everton nine years ago and has not played a competitive game at any level since appearing for Ipswich in 2011.On the positive side, David Silva and Wilfried Bony are available again as City look to bounce back from last week’s Premier League mauling by Liverpool and Wednesday’s defeat at Juventus in Europe.City slipped to third in the Premier League table after their 4-1 hammering by Liverpool, but with top two Leicester and Manchester United playing each other, they have a chance to make up ground this weekend.The loss of Hart, who has been in fine form this season, is undoubtedly a blow but Pellegrini has confidence in his replacement Willy Caballero.Pellegrini said: “I think he will be around ten days out. Fortunately it is not a very serious injury but it is a muscle injury so it is important for him to recover well.“But I never complain about players who are injured. That is why we have a squad. We lost Joe in a very good moment but it is what happens. I trust a lot in Willy Caballero. I am sure he will have a good performance in these games.”Meanwhile, the return of Silva provides a big lift after a nine-game absence with an ankle problem while the availability of Bony increases attacking options at a time when Sergio Aguero still lacks match-sharpness.Pellegrini said: “David is a very important player, the same as Kun – one of the players that is very difficult to replace. I hope both of them can recover.” 1last_img read more

first_imgA High Court challenge has been launched against Donegal County Council’s decision to defer offering housing support to a Traveller family of seven living in a caravan without basic facilities including running water.The action has been brought on behalf of Brian and Eileen Ward, and their five children who are members of the Irish Travelling Community. They are currently living in a caravan at Shore Front, Bundoran.The Irish Independent reports that the family, supported by the Child and Family Agency who voiced concerns over their living conditions, applied to the Council for social housing support.The Wards, who have two children with medical needs, were deemed by the Council to be “an unacceptable risk of anti social behaviour” and the offer of housing was deferred.The family was informed last March that they could make a fresh application in 12 months time but the Wards say the council informed them it would be five years before it would be in a position to offer them housing.The family’s lawyers argue that the council has failed to engage meaningfully with the Wards before arriving at its decision. They also claim the decision was disproportionate and made without relevant considerations.At the High Court on Wednesday the family’s barrister Mark Lynam, instructed by solicitors for the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, said the council’s decision was taken without any input from the Wards who had been unaware that the process was even taking place.Mr Lynam said the council had made its decision based on the Ward’s housing file rather than putting its concerns to the family for their comment.The Wards claim they should have been afforded a hearing and that up to date information should have been sought.Mr Lynam said that any decision to defer or refuse housing due to any alleged anti-social behaviour must be proportionate. He said that in arriving at its decision the council failed to give due weight to Tusla’s concern about the family’s welfare, the conditions they reside in and the fact they are homeless.They currently had no running water and had limited use of a generator. They had tried but had not been able to secure private rented accommodation.In their proceedings against the Council the family seek an order quashing the local authority’s decision to defer offering them social housing.They also seek declarations including that the council’s decision was disproportionate, breaches their constitutional rights and rights under the European Convention on Human Rights.Permission to bring the challenge was granted, on an ex parte basis, by Mr Justice Richard Humphreys. The judge made the matter returnable to a date in September.High Court challenge by Donegal family over council’s decision to defer housing support was last modified: September 1st, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bundoranHIGH COURThousing challengewardslast_img read more

first_img The way the district is implementing its diversity initiatives ranks high with Mark Weiss, chairman of the district advisory committee, who will attend the meetings. Weiss said diversity consciousness is increasing inside classrooms and in the community, where it’s also much needed. “We’re small, but we’re continuing to grow and we need to be able to show respect for each other,” Weiss said. At the same time, Weiss said the district should expand its education for students to include more technical training for those who don’t plan on attending universities upon graduation. Tyler Johnstone agrees. The UCLA student served as the student school board member last year for the district and will also attend these meetings to bring up that point. He said the district should review the classes offered and needs to re-emphasize its school-to-career program. “The district is going on a different path right now, and I think that path needs to be re-evaluated,” Johnstone said. Johnstone said that although the district has adjusted to an explosion in enrollment that happened about 10 years ago, growth should remain on the radar. That way, the district will always be prepared for it. Meetings will be held at 10 a.m., 3:30 and 7 p.m. on Jan. 17 in the West Ranch High School library; Jan. 18 at Placerita Junior High; and Jan. 19 at Sierra Vista Junior High.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Everything from curriculum to community relations will be discussed. The district wants to know what it’s doing well, what could be better and what should be the focus for the next five years, said Pat Willett, district spokeswoman. Consultants will review information from the 90-minute meetings and will break it down into main topics that the district and school board will focus on. “It’s a road map, so you know where you’re going and how you’re going to get there,” Willett said. Willett said input from business leaders, elected officials and people who don’t have students in the district are especially wanted at these meetings, since the district’s graduates eventually become members of the working world and the community. SANTA CLARITA – David Trepp became involved with his son’s education so there wouldn’t be any surprises when report cards came home. The Canyon Country man wanted open communication with teachers and to know what his son was learning in school each day. Now he’s in the know. And now he hopes other parents will get involved in the same way, something he’ll recommend next month during open strategic plan meetings where parents, students and community members with ideas about the future of the William S. Hart Union High School District are invited to speak out. “All along I’ve been told that the more involved a parent is with their kid’s education the more educated that kid will be,” Trepp said.last_img read more

first_imgMinister Varadkar officially opening the Coast Guard station in Killybegs yesterday. Now Malin Head is to get a massive IT upgradeDD Exclusive: The future of Malin Head Coast Guard station is guaranteed after a promise from Minister Leo Varadkar that it will share in a €1M upgrade of its IT systems, Donegal Daily can reveal.More than €330,000 of new technology is on its way to the station in the next few months, with the rest of the money being spent upgrading both Dublin HQ and Valencia Island Coast Guard station.Irish Coast Guard Director Chris Reynolds shocked an audience in Killybegs yesterday where their new state-of-the art Coast Guard station was opened. “I am delighted to have this opportunity to tell you all that a new €1M upgrade of our IT systems will be announced shortly and Malin Head will share in that,” he said.Afterwards Donegal TD Joe McHugh said the official announcement, which will be made in a few weeks, was proof Malin Head is now safe from cuts.“The fact is that Minister Varadkar came to Malin Head Coast Guard station himself to see the work done there and he guaranteed its future afterwards,” said Deputy McHugh last night.“Unfortunately there were unfounded rumours since that the station was still under threat and that just wasn’t true but those claims took on a life of their own and this €330,000 spend on new technology at Malin Head will puts those rumours to bed once and for all. “It is a testament to the fantastic work done 24 hours every day and 365 days of each year by the dedicated staff at Malin Head who are heroes, not just to people around Ireland every day, but to seafarers around the world.”Minister Varadkar said he was “delighted” that Malin Head will get a one third share in the new technology upgrade, adding: “We are working all the time to upgrade our Coast Guard services with the aim of opening a new station every year.“The IT upgrade is also part of our commitment to the service.” €1M PROMISE GUARANTEES FUTURE OF MALIN HEAD COAST GUARD STATION was last modified: March 29th, 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:coast guardIT upgradeKillybegsMalin Headlast_img read more

first_img24 April 2007Language is no longer a barrier to using a computer in South Africa, thanks to a non-profit organisation that has translated a range of computer software into the country’s 11 official languages – and created the first all-South African language keyboard.Translate.org.za, which focuses on the localisation of open source software, has released the popular word-processing, spreadsheet and presentation software OpenOffice.org, web browser Mozilla Firefox and e-mail programme Mozilla Thunderbird in all 11 official languages.“This is the first Africans-helping-Africans, no strings attached free software,” Translate.org.za founder Dwayne Bailey said in November after the organisation won the African ICT Achiever 2006 Award for bridging the digital divide in Africa.Overcoming the language barrier, Bailey said, meant that the more than 20% of South Africans who did not speak fluent English could now use a computer in their own language.“When you use a word processing application, it is not about the product but about the document you wish to create,” Bailey told the Daily Mail. “When you send e-mail you simply want to communicate.“It is much simpler to teach a computer to speak isiZulu than to teach someone to speak English.”The South African keyboardAccording to Bailey, Translate.org.za intervenes “whenever technology becomes a barrier to language”.For example – as the organisation’s own translators found – Venda, one of South Africa’s official languages of South Africa, cannot be accurately typed on a computer.Tshivenda has five additional characters which are not used by any other language. These characters use diacritic marks which, on a standard keyboard, can only be inserted in a tedious, roundabout way – but which change the meanings of words if they are left out.The same applies, to a lesser extent, to three other South African languages, namely Afrikaans, Sepedi and Setswana.Translate.org.za’s “South African keyboard” overcomes this problem. Released as open source software, it can be downloaded from the Translate.org.za website and installed on any number of keyboards without affecting their normal functioning.Impact on language prideThe shortcoming in standard keyboards was more than just a practical barrier, says Bailey; it also lowered Venda’s standing as one of the country’s official languages.“Our work has a parallel impact on language pride in that people now see their languages as modern and relevant.”Translate.org.za has also developed spell checkers for all official South African languages.“Although English is a universal language and is used largely to conduct business in South Africa, people still underestimate the power of indigenous languages,” Bailey told the Daily Mail.“By removing the language barrier the computer, and the information it provides access to, becomes accessible.”Translate.org.za is also a founding partner of the WordForge Foundation, an international organisation dedicated to helping “digitally endangered languages”, and has been working – along with other WordForge partners – on a translation management system that will enable others to start localisation projects in their own countries.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

first_img5 February 2013South Africans are an argumentative lot – and the country’s problems become amplified simply because we shout past each other, National Planning Minister Trevor Manuel told delegates at the Investing in African Mining Indaba in Cape Town on Monday.Instead, Manuel said in his presentation on the National Development Plan (NDP), government and the private sector should “lower the volume of the exchanges so that we can begin to persuade each other”.The two parties needed to recognise what they had in common and move forward, Manuel told delegates to the world’s largest mining conference.‘Opportunity to work together’Transformation was about much more than compliance and should rather be seen as an opportunity for business and government to work together to create an equitable society, he said.The minister’s speech echoed that of President Jacob Zuma after their meeting with other political leaders and senior business representatives in Pretoria on Sunday, where solutions to the country’s economic challenges were discussed.Zuma commented after the four-hour long meeting that whenever government and business pulled together, “we manage to achieve a lot for our country and its people”.Describing the global mining industry as a “milieu of carelessness”, Manuel said resource nationalisation was not a uniquely South African discussion, but rather an issue that has been sharply debated all over the world, in countries such as Australia, Canada and Brazil.“As South Africans we often feel hard done by, but the issues are global,” he said.Investors’ concerns about possible nationalisation of mines in South Africa had been addressed, especially after the ruling African National Congress (ANC) rejected nationalisation as policy at its annual congress in Manguang in November last year.The party instead resolved to create a state mining company that would compete with the private sector.“We must build with what we have, not from what we wish we had,” Manuel said.South Africa’s history meant the country did not yet have the educated workforce we think we need, for example, but South Africa had rich mineral endowments – and that was what the country needed to make the best of.Blueprint for development, growthManuel is a key architect behind the National Development Plan, which is a blueprint for the country’s development and growth. It aims to eliminate poverty and reduce inequality by 2030.He worked on the plan with 25 other commissioners, all of them from outside of the government. “This is not a government plan,” he insisted. “It is a plan for the future of all South Africans” which used the Constitutional ideal of achieving a better life for all as its starting point.The government was very committed to the implementation of the NDP, Manuel said, but would need the help of business and industry to make it happen. “Active citizenry and responsible leadership is at the heart of the plan. This is what will lead to realising our Constitutional promise.”This year’s Mining Indaba, now in its 19th year, is the largest ever, with around 7 500 delegates from all over the world attending.Welcoming delegates to the conference on Monday, Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille said the Indaba had generated R336-million and created 3 000 jobs over the past five years.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

first_imgIn creating her web series, Women On Sex, Mmabatho Montsho decided to publish it on the online medium because she wanted to maintain its integrity. She has interviewed numerous women from all walks of life, who speak candidly on topics related to women’s sexuality and sexual health. Actress and filmmaker Mmabatho Montsho has created a candid web series of videos in which women openly and honestly discuss issues related to female sexuality. (Image: Facebook) Priya PitamberA locally made web series, Women on Sex, from actress and filmmaker Mmabatho Montsho, is allowing women to talk openly about female sexuality. No topic is taboo, and in a series of interviews, women talk openly about things such as rape culture, virginity, sex and liberation, and much more.“The series features candid, funny, thought-provoking interviews with amazing women such as Khanyi Mbau, Masasa Mbangeni, Hajra Omarjee and Refiloe Mpakanyane, among others,” Montsho wrote on her Facebook page.Speaking to the Mail and Guardian, she said: “I hope to challenge the existing narrative that African women don’t engage with their own sexuality in progressive and intellectual ways; the perception (is) that we are ‘helpless victims’.“This narrative has been forced on us and it’s our duty as black female filmmakers to dismantle those stereotypes and decolonise our stories.” She said that previously, there was no content that reflected black women as critical, thinking beings.She started filming in 2012, but took a few breaks to raise funding for the series. So far, she has managed to shoot and publish six out of the 10 episodes. The first deals with virginity. “Virginity in a man is frowned upon, whereas (in) a woman it is imposed; it is expected,” said Khosi Jiyane, a clinical psychologist.Watch the first episode here:See the rest of the web series:ReactionPeople have lauded the videos, describing the series as empowering, and the interviewees as incredible.“I am hooked on this,” wrote Thola Antamu on the Women On Sex Facebook page. “These women are incredible. I would love to know more about this concept. Why not turn it into a TV series? South Africa needs this. SABC needs this.”Nontobeko Mdlalose described the series as thought-provoking. “It was about time that this be spoken about openly.”Make sure to watch keep up with the whole series… Great insight! https://t.co/99WnAQMvqE— Khensani.

Those are the difficulties creatives are facing. That said, South Africa is still primarily a TV-watching audience, so my dream is to find a comfortable compromise and serve that audience.”last_img read more

first_img11 May 2015Cape Town International Airport is set for an overhaul with the upgrading of its domestic and international terminals planned for the airport, along with the realignment of its runway, forming the bulk of Airports Company South Africa’s R7.7bn expansion plans.Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) spokesperson Collin Naidoo, speaking at the Indaba 2015 in Durban on Sunday, said the developments were part of Acsa’s new operating model aimed at improving South Africa’s airports. The expansion is set to be completed over the next three years.The 21-year-old company is run by the Department of Transport and, says Naidoo, is “one of the better performing parastatals”. More than 38-million passengers move through South Africa’s nine airports every year.‘Signs of growth’When asked about the proposed expansions at Lanseria, South Africa’s only privately owned international airport which plans to build a new airport terminal, Naidoo said Acsa did not see it as a threat but rather a sign of good growth for the country.“This is both a challenge and an opportunity, seeing all the upgrades and growth at Lanseria is promising, it says good things about the area,” said Naidoo.Global operationsAcsa manages the Mumbai International Airport and is facilitating the development of a new airport terminal. The Indian airport sees more than 28-million passengers annually. Acasa has a 10% stake in the airport, and is positioned to be at its helm for the next 25 years, Naidoo said.Acsa also runs Brazil’s airport in Sao Paulo, which recently built a new terminal. Two years ago, Acsa signed a memorandum of understanding with Ghana Airports to manage its airports.Naidoo said Acsa’s way of doing business kept the company accountable to its stakeholders, including government, and saved it from “relying on handouts”.Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

first_imgThere is something to be said for playing fast, if not loose, with the facts when it comes to presenting the essentials of a building project. Or at least that’s the driving concept behind the 10x10x10 Green Building Slam, scheduled for Wednesday at the Magic Lantern Theatre in Spokane, Washington.Ten builders, using 10 slides apiece, will have 10 minutes each to highlight the green components of one of their recent projects. Like poetry-slam competitions whose contestants punctuate their verse with dramatized readings, participants in the 10x10x10 Green Building Slam will use slides and concise, vivid description to highlight the green design, landscaping, water efficiency, energy efficiency, and materials aspects of their projects.This event – one of at least nine similar events held recently in the Northwest – will not feature audience voting. And if it falls just short of poetry, it still could come close to it for the commercial and residential builders, architects, designers, and engineers the event is expected to attract.The projects were selected by a seven-member panel for their innovation in design and construction in both urban and suburban settings, notes a blog post by conservation website Down to Earth NW. And the lineup goes beyond residential and commercial buildings.A wide range of project typesFor example, lighting designer Elizabeth Pece, of MW Consulting Engineers’ Escent Lighting Gallery, will deliver 10 minutes on Escent’s photovoltaic lighting installation for the Spokane Convention Center south parking lot. And Alex Mann, of engineering firm AHBL, will zero in on an 11-block street storm-water retrofit, called the Lincoln Street SURGE Project, in a section of Spokane’s South Hill residential neighborhood.Entries focused on buildings include MW Consulting Engineers’ work on a lecture wing of Spokane Falls Community College’s science building and Uptic Studios’ office designs for advertising firm Magner Sanborn.Five single-family homes and one multifamily project are on the building slam roster.One of the more unusual single-family buildings on the schedule, Earthflow House, in Elk, Washington, is a three-bedroom, two-bath of almost 1,900-sq.-ft. A portion of the house is buried in the hill behind it so that the building looks as if it is snaking in and out of the earth.Colin Anderson, of Copeland Architecture & Construction, designed the home and will present its 10 minutes at the building slam. He tells GreenBuildingAdvisor that the slab and buried walls are insulated to R-15, while the exterior walls, built of structural insulated panels, are R-27. The SIP roof is insulated to R-43, while buried portions of the roof are insulated with a minimum 10 in. (sloping up to 16 in.) of expanded polystyrene.Anderson said he is not at liberty to disclose the construction cost but did note that it was very close to that for conventional construction.The Building Slam is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Magic Lantern, 25 W. Main Avenue, in Spokane. Admission is $10, $5 for students.last_img read more

first_imgThe United States does less to conserve energy than most of the world’s largest economies and is putting itself at a competitive disadvantage because of it, a new report from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy says.The International Energy Efficiency Scorecard measured efficiency efforts in the world’s 16 largest economies that together account for 81% of global gross domestic product and 71% of the global consumption of electricity.The U.S. was ranked 13th, with a total of 42 of a possible 100 points — better than Russia, Brazil, and Mexico but behind the rest of the world. The U.S. scored 23 fewer points than top-ranked Germany.“A country that uses less energy to achieve the same or better results reduces its costs and pollution, creating a strong, more competitive economy,” the report from the nonprofit group said. “While energy efficiency has played a role in the economies of developing nations for decades, cost-effective energy efficiency remains a massively underutilized energy resource.” Scorecard measures efforts in 31 areasThe authors used 31 separate metrics in four broad categories: transportation, buildings, industry, and national policy. Roughly half of the score is based on policies and half on quantifiable performance.The authors looked at such things as fuel economy standards for vehicles, efficiency standards for appliances, whether there was a national energy savings target, average miles per gallon for passenger vehicles, and the energy consumed per square foot of residential floor space.Germany had the highest individual score. Top-scoring countries in individual categories were China (buildings), Germany (industry), Italy (transportation), and France, Italy and the European Union (tied, in national efforts).“For every metric, at least one country (and often several) received full points,” the report says. “However, every country also has serious weaknesses, and the average score was just 50 points.”The authors said that the U.S. has made progress toward greater efficiency in recent years in such things as building codes, appliance standards, fuel economy standards for cars and trucks, and in voluntary partnerships between government and industry. “However,” they added, “the overall story is disappointing.”Progress here has been slow since the last scorecard was issued in 2012, they wrote, while efforts in Germany, Japan, China and other countries “are surging ahead.”“The inefficiency in the U.S. economy means a tremendous waste of energy resources and money,” the report says. Countries with higher scores — such as Canada, Australia, India, and South Korea — have a competitive advantage over the U.S. because it takes less energy there to produce and distribute the same goods.The report questions how the U.S. can compete globally if it “continues to waste money and energy that other industrialized nations save and can reinvest.”Among the report’s recommendations:Congress should pass a national energy savings target.National building codes should be stronger.The federal government should do more for education and training in manufacturing and industrial sectors.More should be done to promote energy efficient modes of transportation for both people and freight.last_img read more

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#audio#journalism#radio#Soundcloud#YouTube Another key feature – new even to beta testers like myself – is the Explore tab. It’s here that SoundCloud hopes to connect users with the content creators who are collectively publishing 10 hours of music, remixes, radio shows and audio commentary to SoundCloud every minute.It’s this lean-back, no-clicks-required listening experience that the company hopes will keep people engaged, spending their work days with SoundCloud instead of something like Pandora or Spotify. So far, it appears to be working. Since launching the private beta of this redesign in May, SoundCloud has seen a 30% increase in engagement. “This will be the biggest update we’ve ever done in terms of core metrics,” says SoundCloud cofounder and CTO Eric Wahlforss. In addition to the juicy 10 hours-per-minute audio upload stat, the company now boasts a reach of 180 million users. That’s overall reach, not registered users, a metric Wahlforss says the company focusing less on these days. Wahlforss won’t talk about revenue or the number of paying, premium subscribers, but he says the freemium model is working out.  The site’s massive overhaul coincides with the company’s other big strategic initiative: courting radio programs and other audio content providers beyond the musicians, DJs and remix artists who have populated the site from day one. This summer, SoundCloud hired public radio vet Jim Colgan to oversee content relationships, and the platform is increasingly beloved by journalists. The company stops short of using the term “radio” in its marketing efforts, but you can see how SoundCloud could slowly carve out a key role in that medium’s future. SoundCloud Grows Into a Truly Social PlatformContinuous playback is nice (and some might say, now a fairly standard feature on music sites), but it’s not enough to keep people tuned in. There has to be some intelligence behind what content is playing and why. To achieve that, SoundCloud is becoming more social, leveraging Facebook user data to connect users with the most appropriate sound creators and building in some Twitter-style interactive features of its own.Starting with the sign-up screen, the Facebook integration is tighter. When you authenticate using your Facbeook account, SoundCloud scans your likes and tries to figure out which record labels, radio programs, musicians and everyday users you might want to follow. Again, this is fairly standard stuff for a social service (and the lack of a Twitter friend-finder is surprising), but it’s a significant step toward SoundCloud becoming not just an audio-hosting service, but a sound discovery engine as well.“The better we know you, the better the stuff we can play for you,” says Wahlforss. “I think the future is very much going in that direction: A highly personalized continuous playback experience powered by smart algorithms on the one hand and great curators on the other.”It makes sense. The more people you follow, the more relevant audio will playback and the longer you’ll keep SoundCloud.com running in one of your browser tabs. It’s not just about integrations with existing social services: SoundCloud is slowly positioning itself as a social network in its own right. The site has long encouraged collaboration and interactivity through standard “likes” as well as time-based comments that can be posted at any point in an audio file’s waveform.Today, it takes things up a notch by adding a “repost” button that lets users share each other’s sounds as they would on Twitter or Tumblr. That’s great for discovery and user engagement and thus good for SoundCloud’s longterm prospects. It’s also potentially huge for sound creators, whose bedroom-produced remixes might – just maybe – get reshared by Snoop Dogg.  SoundCloud is different now. After months of testing the next iteration of its Web app in private beta, the fast-growing audio service relaunched Tuesday morning. The result is a stickier, more social experience that bolsters SoundCloud’s position as the YouTube of audio.The most striking change is how SoundCloud looks. It sports a cleaner, more app-like interface with a vastly simplified navigation. Instead of five top-level navigation buttons, it now has just two, flanked by a much more prominent search box. Beyond Looks: How SoundCloud Works NowIt’s a huge visual refresh, but the aesthetics are practically a footnote to what’s really new here. The entire service has been reengineered to fundamentally change the way people interact with it. Audio now plays back continuously as you browse the site, even as you jump from page to page. When one track ends, the next one in that user’s audio stream begins. SoundCloud is also going live with a feature called “sets,” which are basically user-curated playlists that exist in a single waveform.  12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…center_img 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout john paul titlowlast_img read more

The controller also puts an HDMI port into the mix, so users can watch the drone footage in high definition.As for safety, the product designers included an automatic kill switch, which kicks in upon contact to stop the propellers. And if that somehow fails, those propellers are fabricated from a softer plastic, to mitigate any damage.Parrot may be a forerunner in the consumer drone market, but its latest still isn’t a perfect product. It takes more than two hours to charge Bebop’s battery, after which, you only get 12 minutes of flight. And once again, its most interesting feature—virtual flight via Oculus Rift—isn’t actually available to consumers yet. Still, it’s a peep at a rather futuristic scenario, and it offers a glimmer of what people are creating with emerging technologies. Such immersive experiences could do a lot of good in the right hands. I imagine farmers using this in the field, to more accurately assess their crops, or emergency workers literally looking around a dangerous site to spot the injured.Of course, anything that puts a high-definition camera in the skies has a potential creep factor, and Oculus-powered “vision” could up that factor. But it looks like we’ll have some time to think that through before any sort of Paroculus goes mainstream. At the press event Thursday, Parrot CEO Henri Seydoux called the Bebop a “flying camera,” so it’s no surprise the company would pack a powerful one in there. The copter comes with a 1080p HD video camera that offers finer detail than previous versions. And customers can still take advantage of that roomy field of view to make the camera pan and zoom (though they’ll be viewing the action on a mobile screen). Improvements to the software also boost stability for photos and video captured during flight.The quadcopter offers 8GB of built-in flash storage, and with the integrated GPS, the drone can complete a pre-designated flight plan, or come running home at the push of a button. Tags:#drones#Oculus Rift#parrot 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe Appcenter_img Parrot’s AR drones have been a darling in the tech world for the past few years. The small, lightweight smartphone-controlled rigs are like souped-up toys for your inner child, but powered by very grown-up technology.Now the French gadget maker has announced a new high-flying machine, the Bebop, which is designed to work with another very buzzwordy technology, the Oculus Rift virtual reality goggles. This virtual-reality-to-actual-reality combination gives people an immersive way to see and experience “firsthand” what the drone sees while it’s in flight. It’s practically like soaring and hovering yourself, without strapping on wings.Brandon Stark, eat your heart out.The Closest You Can Get To FlyingLike the youngest Stark’s “warg” sight on Game of Thrones, Oculus wearers can survey things from the literal bird’s eye view of this drone.Thank the company’s other new gadget—an all-new optional Skycontroller. It connects the VR goggles to the system and to the 14 megapixel, full-HD video camera with fish-eye lens. The latter offers an exceptional 180-degree field of view, so Oculus-donning users can simply look around to control pitch, panning and tilt as the copter hovers or flies. adriana lee The Paris-based company knows how to crank things up a few notches and attract interest. Too bad it can’t overcome the fact that Oculus isn’t actually a commercial consumer product yet, so everyday customers wouldn’t be able to experience this kind of flight. And Parrot only works with version 1 of the VR goggles for now (though work on version 2 support has already begun).Not that this should stop Bebop hopefuls from claiming their quadcopter anyway. Because even without the warg sight, this model is impressive in its own right.Drone On, Fly High 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout The Bebop will be available in Q4 2014, alone or as part of a bundle with the Skycontroller. No information on Bebop or Skycontroller pricing was announced at press time. Oculus Rift, version 2, is not currently available for purchase.

first_imgA women’s organisation in Arunachal Pradesh has sought a ‘one man, one wife’ policy for ending polygamy among resourceful tribal people in the State.The Arunachal Pradesh Women’s Welfare Society (APWWS) has also suggested the implementation of the Central Civil Services (Conduct) Rules in the State to stop polygamy and adultery by government employees, besides denial of tickets to men with “multiple wives” for rural and Assembly elections.The APWWS made the suggestions in a memorandum to Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Women chairperson Radhilu Chai Techi during a programme to observe its 40th foundation day on Thursday.The organisation’s outgoing president Dipti Bengia Tadar said that rich and well-qualified officers in the State had been indulging in polygamy, causing distress to many tribal families.Arunachal Pradesh has 26 major tribes and scores of sub-tribes. Traditional tribal laws allow polygamy among certain tribes and associated disputes are usually settled by customary courts that are allegedly pro-men.The first district and sessions courts were set up only after December 2007 when the judiciary was separated from the executive in the State.The State women’s commission has demanded compulsory registration of marriages towards stopping polygamy and cases of domestic violence against women in Arunachal Pradesh.Ms. Techi and other members of the commission in June met Chief Minister Pema Khandu to apprise him of “hundreds of cases related to marriage” that the commission deals with.“Marital disputes remain unresolved or partially resolved due to lack of registration,” Ms. Techi said, asking the government to come up with a feasible Act under which all marriages are registered.Women’s rights activists say polygamous men usually take teenage girls from economically weaker sections of society as the second or third wife apparently to rescue them from poverty. Many of these young wives end up as victims of abuse and need to be rescued. Some are abandoned too. The APWWS has been facilitating the stay of such victims at safe homes.last_img read more

The 2013 Wimbledon champion toyed with the left-hander, who failed to break Murray. (Also read: Serena Williams, Nick Kyrgios enter round two at Wimbledon) “It’s not that easy playing someone you know so well, but I did OK,” Murray said.Murray piled up 31 winners, including a forehand drop shot on match point.Murray finished the match just before the first rain delay of the tournament. Tarps were pulled over all of the outside courts, and the retractable roof on Centre Court was closed for the ensuing women’s match between Svetlana Kuznetsova and Caroline Wozniacki.Also reaching the second round with straight-set wins were seeded Frenchman Richard Gasquet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.No. 7 Gasquet swept past Britain’s Aljaz Bedene 6-3, 6-4, 6-3, while No. 12 Tsonga got past Spain’s Inigo Cervantes 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-4.

He was also warned for an audible obscenity, but otherwise kept on his best behavior and settled down to dominate the fourth set.”A couple years ago, if I get broken there, I’m probably going to end up losing the match,” Kyrgios said. “It’s just maturity.”The highlight of the match came when Kyrgios hit a between-the-legs “tweener” from behind the baseline that sailed over Stepanek’s head at the net and dropped in for a perfect lob winner in the opening game of the third set.

first_imgNew Delhi, Nov 9 (PTI) The Supreme Court has directed a former AIADMK MP to appear before it or face arrest in a more than a decade old case of breaching contract with a company over transfer of its subsidiary firm.A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra issued notice to former MP K C Palanisamy asking him to be personally present before it on November 28, failing which a non-bailable arrest warrant would be issued against him and his properties would be attached.”Having heard counsel for the parties, we are of the considered opinion that the real contesting party is respondent no. 3 (Palanisamy),” the bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, said and ordered issuance of notice to him.It said the notice should be issued “with a stipulation that he shall remain personally present before this court on November 28, 2017, failing which a non-bailable warrant of arrest shall be issued against him, apart from attaching his properties.”The apex court was hearing a civil appeal filed against National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) order of July 5 this year in favour of Kasturi and Sons Ltd (KSL), owner of The Hindu newspaper whose subsidiary firm was sold to Palanisamy in 2004.The former MP had allegedly failed to make the payment for purchasing KSLs subsidiary, Sporting Pastime India Ltd, a press note issued by KSL said.However, after an arbitration between the parties, he was directed to return the firm to KSL. The order was upheld by the National Company Law Tribunal as well as NCLAT, it said.advertisementThe matter reached the apex court when a firm, Cheran Properties Ltd, allegedly owned by Palanisamy, filed a special leave petition against the NCLAT order.The case involves transfer of Sporting Pastime India Ltd, a 100 per cent subsidiary of KSL, to K C Palanisamy and his nominees in 2004, the press note said.

first_imgSince the beginning of 2018, Asus has been trying its best to play the disruptor in the smartphone industry. We already saw what the Zenfone Max Pro M1 did to the established rivals such as the Redmi Note 5 Pro and Moto G5S earlier in the year, i.e. they offered equally good hardware at a price that undercut the established ones by some huge margin. With the Max Pro M2, Asus has mostly repeated that same formula and thrown in a mix of fresh features at a seriously affordable price. However, Asus wanted to tap the slightly lower rung of the market with the same formula. This is where the ZenFone Max M2 enters the picture.This is a phone with which Asus hopes to take on the Xiaomi and Honor devices in the Indian market in this price segment. And my impression, after reviewing the ZenFone Max M2, I feel that Asus has done a fairly good job with it and it can surely match up to the likes of the Redmi 6 Pro.The ZenFone Max M2 is a slightly watered-down version of the more accomplished Max Pro M2, to fit a price tag that makes it more accessible. It sports a notched display, has a reasonably big 4000mAh battery, a stock Android interface and a fairly powerful Snapdragon 632 chipset — basically everything that will satisfy consumers looking for a smartphone around a price point of Rs 10,000. The phone even has robust build quality with a metal body and matte finish compared to the glossy finish that Nokia and Honor offer with their phones in this price bracket. But the best bit about the Max M2 is its price: Asus is selling the base variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage for Rs 9,999 while the one with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage costs Rs 11,999.advertisementZenFone Max M2 design reviewAs I stated earlier, Asus has played it very safe with the design of the Max M2. There’s no fancy glossy polycarbonate or glass at back. Instead, there is just a good old metal-plastic combination. There’s a dual camera setup stacked vertically to the left edge while the fingerprint sensor rests at the centre. Wait, have we seen this design somewhere before? Yes, it’s the same layout that’s available on the Zenfone Max Pro M1. In fact, keep the Max M2 and the Max Pro M1 together and you will be hard-pressed to find the differences. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. A metal body with a plastic chassis means that you can go out in the world with it without slapping on a case on it. Sadly, you would still need a screen guard. Asus doesn’t explain if the phone has Gorilla Glass on top of the display or not. The front features an almost fullscreen display with a notch on top and a thick chin. The notch is fairly sizeable and contains an 8MP front camera accompanied by an LED flash and an earpiece that also holds the notification LED.Other usual features such as the buttons and a micro USB port can be found to the side. The SIM tray can also hold two nano SIM cards and a micro SD card at the same time. In my opinion, the Max M2 feels solid in the hands and should age well over the course of time if you take care. That said, I would have liked to see Asus jazz up the design a bit, and may opt for a smaller notch.Zenfone Max M2 display reviewAsus hasn’t really done anything new with the display. The Max M2 now sports a notched display that has become the norm in the segment. Unlike the Redmi 6 Pro, the Max M2 has only be given an HD+ display. For cost-cutting, I feel this is too much. Nonetheless, the screen is bigger at 6.2-inches. It is a typical IPS LCD panel and for the most part, I find it works well in most scenarios. The screen is dull, and I will say average in terms of showing colours. The contrast is average too but the brightness levels are high, which makes it easy to read chats on WhatsApp or go through web pages even under direct sunlight. With a sufficiently wide viewing angle, it is never a hassle to binge on YouTube videos with friends. The notch doesn’t invade into the viewing experience while watching videos or playing games.Zenfone Max M2 performance reviewAsus understands that even the average Indian smartphone consumer demands a fairly powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset that runs a software as close to the stock version of Android. So, it gives the M2 exactly these features. The Max M2 features a Snapdragon 632 chipset paired with either 3GB or 4GB RAM. Inside the software is stock Android Oreo 8.1 OS. The Snapdragon 632 is the successor to the popular Snapdragon 625 used by the Redmi 6 Pro. The new chip has Kryo 250 cores but retains the old Adreno 506 GPU.advertisementWith a phone running a stock Android OS, performance isn’t usually an issue and the Max M2 works very well. I had the Max M2 as a daily driver for a couple of days, running all the basic utility apps as well as games, constantly connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi and 4G network. And I have to say the Max M2 left a fairly good impression on me. The phone was always at ease while I was on social media apps and there was no lag when I switched between apps. The memory management is also good. Since the Snapdragon 632 is an out-and-out midrange chipset, I did miss the smooth performance while playing some resource-intensive games like PUBG MOBILE and F1 Mobile Racing. That said, the lighter and agile stock Android means I never encountered choppy frame rates and embarrassing lags that cost me the victory. I wish Asus had prepared their Android Pie build by the time the Max M2 was launched. Nonetheless, Android Pie will be coming shortly and should help improve the performance a little.Zenfone Max M2 camera reviewAsus hasn’t been able to crack that sweet spot for cameras on its smartphones. The Max M2 doesn’t change any of that fact. At the back, there’s a 13-megapixel primary sensor with F1.8 lens and 1.12um pixels. This is accompanied by a secondary 2MP depth sensor and an LED flash. For the front, there’s an 8-megapixel camera that’s also assisted by an LED flash. For most of the time, the Max M2 manages to be a decent camera in well-lit scenarios. It can capture a wide range of colours while the contrasts are towards the higher side. Sadly, all Asus smartphones suffer from the issue of overexposure and the Max M2 is no exception. The camera does struggle in daylight to balance the exposures. However, the enhanced exposure helps during low-light scenes or during the night. Subjects are evenly lit in most situations. The camera tends to suppress noise well but loses out on sharpness in low light. The colour accuracy is also lost. The portrait mode is a mess that takes blurry photos with choppy edge-detection and extremely dull colour tones.IMAGE SAMPLESAs for the front camera, it captures vibrant colours. But it also is plagued by the overexposure bug and tends to bring in a lot of noise even in well-lit ambience. The details are absent while the portrait mode is rather average with its results. The front camera also offers face unlock feature. In well-lit ambience, the system works well but is slower than the fingerprint sensor.advertisementZenfone Max M2 battery reviewWhile the Max M2 disappoints with is camera optics, it kind of redeems itself with its reasonably big 4000mAh battery. I topped it up to 100 per cent and even on a very busy day, which demanded a lot of texting, web browsing, streaming on YouTube, playing short sessions of PUBG and light camera work, the Max M2 still had around 20 per cent of juice at the end of the day. The 10W fast charger does top it up pretty quickly.Asus understands that even the average Indian smartphone consumer demands a fairly powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset that runs a software as close to the stock version of Android. So, it gives the M2 exactly these features.Should you buy the Zenfone Max M2Definitely, if all you prefer is a smartphone that offers a solid user experience with a clean Android interface, a reliable battery, a sturdy build and a big display, then the Max M2 is a good choice. For most consumers, I believe the Zenfone Max M2 is a dependable option. Surely, it isn’t as appealing as its flamboyant rivals such as the Honor 9 Lite, the Lenovo K9 and the Nokia 5.1 Plus. The camera performance is also not on par with the what the Redmi 6 Pro manages to deliver.However, the biggest threat the Max M2 is its own big brother — the Zenfone Max Pro M1. At almost a similar price, the Max Pro M1 offers the more potent Snapdragon 636 chipset, a full HD+ display and a bigger 5000mAh battery. Asus is aware of that and hence positions the Max M2 for those who want the notched display over a powerful chip. I can’t figure out why users should choose a big display over a more well-rounded smartphone. Till the ZenFone Max Pro M1 stays in the market, the Max M2 can be a tough sell.ALSO READ | ZenFone Max Pro M2 vs Redmi Note 6 Pro: Asus-Xiaomi battle continues in under Rs 15,000 marketALSO READ | PUBG MOBILE is a hit on smartphones because it isn’t a mobile game, it’s a PC gameZenfone Max M2 review7.5/10ProsSmooth performanceReliable batteryStock AndroidConsBoring designCamera performanceAndroid Oreolast_img read more

first_imgIn his June 2015 Report, released today, June 17, Auditor General Michael Pickup said that aquaculture monitoring needs improvement. He also said that the Department of Health and Wellness does not know if prevention and treatment work is reducing gambling-related harms. He found that while government procurement generally followed legislation and policy, work is needed to make sure items are properly approved. As well, he found that six departments and agencies have made significant progress in implementing his office’s previous recommendations. Mr. Pickup identified concerns with aquaculture monitoring. He noted the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture has limited ability to make operators follow environmental monitoring requirements. “The department can cancel licences but needs other options for minor offences,” said Mr. Pickup. “Additionally, information systems do not support effective management of aquaculture in Nova Scotia because the systems do not contain complete information.” The auditor general found that the department followed its policies in issuing aquaculture licences, leases and renewals but needs more written documentation to guide staff. While the department is providing fish health monitoring services and responding to emergencies, it may not always be aware of disease outbreaks or if these are properly managed. The relocation of most of the Aquaculture Division and resulting loss of staff likely contributed to a backlog and delay in processing aquaculture renewal applications. The department also stopped processing new applications while it waited for significant regulatory changes. An audit of the prevention and treatment of problem gambling found the Department of Health and Wellness does not know if prevention and treatment work is reducing the number of Nova Scotians experiencing gambling-related harms. “Many Nova Scotians who need help with problems related to their gambling do not reach out to provincial services. Health and Wellness needs to figure out why this is and focus on getting more of those people to look for help.” The audit also looked at responsible gambling. It found that while the Nova Scotia Provincial Lotteries and Casino Corporation has a number of programs to promote responsible gambling, improvements are needed in evaluating those programs to make sure they reach enough people. Additionally, agreements between the province and First Nations bands do not always include responsible gambling requirements and there are no processes to make sure gambling on reserves is in compliance with provincial laws. Another audit looked at procurement of professional services in six departments and found opportunities for improvement. “Procurement requirements were generally followed but departments need to do more to make sure purchases are properly approved,” Mr. Pickup said. The report notes that government completes limited monitoring to verify that the procurement act and policy are followed. While contracts were monitored to make sure government received the services it paid for, in some cases, contracts were signed after work started and in some situations, there were no contracts. Important contract terms related to penalty clauses and dispute resolution were also missing. For the second time in the past year, the auditor general found that government departments may not be following Canada Revenue Agency requirements when they hire contractors. “Government needs to look at the risk of not following the agency rules across departments and take appropriate action to correct any issues identified.” In his followup of recommendations the office made in 2011 and 2012, the auditor general found that six departments and agencies are doing a better job of implementing recommendations from his office. “While the 57 per cent overall implementation rate is only a slight improvement from last year’s 50 per cent rate, it is encouraging to see the improvement to 70 per cent or more in these six organizations,” Mr. Pickup said. “However, some entities had very low rates of less than 50 per cent and should look to those organizations with higher implementation rates for ways to more quickly deal with issues they know exist.” The 82-page report contains 25 recommendations to government.

By Sanae ElouaziRabat- A bottle of vodka claimed to be the most expensive in the world was reportedly found empty on a construction site, after being stolen earlier this week from a bar in the Danish capital of Copenhagen, local Police confirmed on Twitter.The owner of the Cafe 33 bar, Brian Ingberg, told Denmark’s Ekstra Bladet that the bottle is worth USD 1.3 million and appeared on the US television series “House of Cards,” where the Russian president gifts the bottle to US President Frank Underwood. “The expensive vodka bottle that was stolen in Vesterbro [central Copenhagen neighbourhood, ed.] in the early hours of Tuesday has been found,” the police’s tweet read.“The bottle is now in police custody, and appears to be intact and will be examined,” said a second tweet.Created by the Russian luxury car maker Russo-Baltique, the bottle is made of gold and silver and has a diamond-studded cap.“I had loaned [the bottle] from the Dartz Factory in Russia, which is known for making the world’s most expensive cars and vodka. It has been part of my collection for six months,” the owner said. “Unfortunately, it’s empty. It is one of the employees working on the construction site that has found it.”“I feel fantastic. The vodka god saved us,” he added.Since the bottle was found unbroken, Ingberg said that he is planning to refill it again and put it back on display.A CCTV footage of the robbery featured what appeared to be a masked young man entering the bar and looking around the storage before taking the high-value bottle. “They apparently had a key or copied a key, and they rolled up the shutters and unlocked the door, then gone into the bar and broken down the door to the vodka museum in the basement. They then left with only one bottle, even though there are 1,200 bottles they could have taken,” Ingberg told the media outlet TV2. read more

“We consider the re-election of the Director-General today a confirmation of our appreciation of his innovativeness and dedication to the noble work of this organization,” Vice-Chairperson of the ILO Governing Body, Ambassador Eui-Yong Chung, said in endorsing the re-election.Mr. Somavia, a Chilean and the first representative of the Southern Hemisphere to head ILO, received a second five-year mandate from the Governing Body. He will formally begin his next term in March 2004, during which he pledged to work towards decent work for all.”Work is central to people’s lives and people everywhere are asking for solutions. We are responding to that call,” Mr. Somavia said, calling the vote an endorsement of the ILO’s ongoing efforts to deliver dignity to workers and decency to work. “Because we have voiced the concerns of people, the ILO is relevant, visible and in demand.”Over the past four years, the ILO launched the Decent Work Agenda aimed at promoting workers’ rights, employment and enterprise creation and social protection. In addition, the agency established a top-level panel to promote international dialogue on ways to make globalization more inclusive and fair. read more

Due to the extreme heat that has hit Niagara in recent days, Brock’s main campus cooling systems are operating at maximum capacity.Given the sustained high temperatures, the campus demand has exceeded the cooling capacity.Normally the system recovers overnight, but due to nightly temperatures well over 20°C, the central plant cannot sufficiently ‘catch up.’ As a result, a continual rise in interior temperatures is being experienced.Many areas across campus can expect higher than normal (23°C) indoor temperatures. Facilities Management trades, staff and contractors are monitoring the systems 24-7 and responding to and repairing the various systems as best they can to help alleviate higher temperatures.Please use window shades and blinds where equipped and limit use of any heat generating equipment and lighting.If your area is experiencing extreme or ongoing temperature issues, contact Facilities Management at [email protected] or x3717. read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Measures designed to ease the pressure on over-indebted households, included in article 49 of the labour ministry’s draft omnibus bill, were withdrawn by Labour Minister Yiorgos Koutroumanis, after discussion on the bill had begun in parliament. The labour minister said that the decision to withdraw the measures was taken because consultation with the European Central Bank was continuing and that they would be re-tabled as an amendment once the ECB report on the issue was released some time next week.The specific article introduces a series of measures to ease pressure on households with an excess debt burden, such as an extension for debt settlement, more favourable interest rates and a freeze on a debtor’s main residence, as well as a ban on seizing sums less than 1,500 euro from regular bank accounts, or 2,000 euro from joint accounts.It also introduces changes to the regime for out-of-court debt settlements and made the measures for households open to entrepreneurs that had one-person businesses and do not have the right to file for bankruptcy under the code for businesses.

first_img I got my first taste of Shadow of the Tomb Raider back during this year’s Tribeca Games festival. At the event, we were shown an extended demo that showcased the story and gameplay. At the time, I desperately wanted to play it. I am a massive fan of Tomb Raider, after all. Thankfully, I got my wish during E3 when I checked out the game in the NVIDIA meeting room. Spoiler warning: I really liked what I experienced.This demo ran on a PC with a GeForce 1080Ti graphics card. I played Rise of the Tomb Raider on my own PC which has a GTX 1080 card. I thought that was mind-blowing, but Shadow of the Tomb Raider running on a 1080Ti completely destroys it. The game looks absolutely stunning. The only drawback with the demo is that I had to play with a mouse and keyboard. I’ve only ever played Tomb Raider (and 99.9% of all games) with a controller. Despite that, I managed to complete the entire 20-minute long demo; even if it wasn’t as elegantly as I would have liked.Most of the playable parts of the demo took place within a labyrinthine cave. This meant I had to flex my platforming skills in order to progress. Even though I didn’t need to do so for the demo, I made sure to pick up items found on the ground and read all of the inscriptions on the walls. Basically, doing Tomb Raider-y things. The highlight of this section was going underwater where I had to watch out for falling rocks and giant eels. As a person who is afraid of being underwater (don’t judge me!), this was intense stuff! Despite my inexperience with mouse and keyboard, I found the controls smooth and precise.The demo ends with a massive firefight against a group of Trinity soldiers. Under normal circumstances, I would have no problems with a combat scenario like this. However, with a mouse and keyboard, it was exponentially more challenging. Thankfully, it’s now possible to end encounters by hiding from foes for long enough. I took my time and silently killed all of my enemies, shooting only when I absolutely had to. I knew the game places a bigger emphasis on stealth combat, but it was nice to experience this first hand.Going into further detail about stealth, I love how Lara can now better use the environment to hide and attack. I can see why this game takes place in a jungle. It opens up stealth in new and creative ways. Like before, Lara can conceal herself within bushes and massive leaves on the ground. She can also hide inside of plants which cover the sides of buildings. I didn’t experience this in the demo, but Lara can also cover herself in mud to make herself invisible to foes. Basically, you can live out your fantasy of being Arnold Schwarzenegger from Predator. Lara can also instill fear in foes similar to the way Batman does in the Arkham series. This is a Lara Croft you do not want to mess with.Story-wise, I didn’t see anything that wasn’t already shown during the Tribeca Games festival demo. As the developers have stated, this installment focuses more on Lara’s journey of finally becoming the “Tomb Raider.” Things won’t go smoothly, and we’ll see our hero possibly doing some decidedly unheroic things along the way. Is Lara Croft truly the “good guy” in this tale? The fact the game is even raising that type of question shows Eidos’ willingness to push boundaries with the character. If this demo is anything to go by, our hero is going to get tested in many ways.I’m a big fan of the current iteration of Tomb Raider so this demo has only gotten me more hyped than I already was. In 20 minutes, it showed me everything I wanted to see. Namely, story, combat, stealth, platforming, and puzzles. I didn’t get to face off against any land animals like panthers, but I suppose I can wait to play the full game to experience that. I’m sure there are even more gameplay surprises awaiting gamers, as well as narrative twists and turns. I can’t wait to see what Square-Enix and Eidos Interactive have in store for us.The only question I have now is: should I upgrade my graphics card to experience Shadow of the Tomb Raider in all of its eye-bleedingly awesome glory? I have until now and September 14 to make that decision, I suppose. If not, I can always play the game on Xbox One or PS4. I’m sure the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro versions of the game will look stunning as well. Whatever platform you play on, do yourself a favor and check out Shadow of the Tomb Raider.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target Simon Belmont, King K.

first_img What to watch for in the heavens above The coming year will bring the usual array of annual meteor showers, but it isn’t predicted to yield any notable meteor outbursts or especially bright comets for skywatchers. There will be a few treats in 2019 worth gazing up for, however. Things kick off with the super blood wolf moon January 20, which occurs every few years or so, including last January.  A few rare celestial events to mark on your calendars include Mercury’s transit across the sun on Nov. 11. There’s also another total solar eclipse like the one that wowed millions in the US in August 2017, though this one, on July 2, will only be visible in parts of South America and the South Pacific.  Sci-Tech Virgin space plane skims the edge of space Now playing: Watch this: More mission milestones As the new year begins, plenty of missions are already underway and several will reach their targets over the next 12 months. The action began in the first hours of 2019, as NASA’s New Horizons flew by super-distant object Ultima Thule in the Kuiper Belt. A few other spacecraft will get even closer to space rocks in 2019. Both Japan’s Hayabusa-2 and NASA’s Osiris-Rex will spend part of the year making preparations to swipe samples of the asteroids Ryugu and Bennu, respectively. Hayabusa-2 is scheduled to collect its sample this year, while Osiris-Rex will wait until 2020.  1:47 Comment Finally, we’ll receive a close pass from a particularly weird asteroid named 1999 KW4 making its once-every-18-years visit through our neighborhood on May 25. This potentially hazardous asteroid is a big one, perhaps as wide as a small town, with a diameter of up to 3 kilometers (1.9 miles). It’s also a binary system, meaning it’s orbited by a smaller asteroid moon. No need to worry, though. Although it’s classified as potentially hazardous due mainly to its size, it will sail by us at a very safe distance of over 5 million kilometers (3.1 million miles). So the world should make it all the way to 2020, when even more big space missions are on tap, including possibly the world’s first artificial meteor shower. Say whaaa? Stay tuned and heads up!

Update Jan. 4 at 9:25 a.m. PT: Added that China’s Chang’e-4 spacecraft has landed on the moon. Tags 21 Photos Elsewhere in the solar system, NASA’s Juno spacecraft is scheduled to make seven more close passes by Jupiter in 2019, hopefully leading to a better understanding of the mysterious, massive planet. On the much smaller and redder world next door, the recently landed Mars Insight probe will get to work drilling into the Martian surface to explore the planet’s interior and listen for “Marsquakes.” Perhaps the biggest daredevil maneuvers in the entire solar system will be performed by the Parker Solar Probe, also launched in 2018, which will again approach the sun in April and September, extracting valuable data from the star’s outer atmosphere. Then in December it will use a Venus gravity assist to get even faster, breaking its own records and sliding closer to the sun than ever before. There aren’t as many big-ticket scientific probes and telescopes set to launch in 2019 as there were in 2018. One worth tracking, however, is Europe’s Characterizing Exoplanets Satellite (Cheops), which is meant to provide a better look at exoplanets around distant stars. It could launch as soon as November.

Star Trek at 50: For 50 years, the Star Trek franchise has made history with its vision of the future. Astrobotic designed a lunar lander capable of delivering a payload to the moon’s surface. Astrobotic Much of the major space news from 2018 seemed to involve either big, new rockets or robotic spacecraft traveling to faraway places. But 2019 appears to be focused on a single celestial body: our moon. For sky watchers, a “super blood wolf moon” (a combination of a total lunar eclipse and the moon at its closest point to Earth) will put on a show in late January. A lot of space organizations have big plans for our sole natural satellite. The new year had barely started, in fact, when China’s space agency landed its Chang’e-4 spacecraft and the rover it carries on the far side of the moon. The lander will explore the area near the south pole on the side of the moon that always faces away from Earth. Lunar traffic will likely pick up with a planned lander/rover mission by India’s space agency that could launch as soon as Jan. 30. A few weeks later, a SpaceX Falcon 9 is scheduled to send the first Israeli lunar lander on its way. israelmoonmissionThis Israeli spacecraft is expected to land on the moon in early 2019. Eliran Avital The latter is the product of private company SpaceIL, which was the sole Israeli team to compete in the Google Lunar XPrize. Although the competition ended without any winners making it to the moon, SpaceIL and at least three other finalists — Berlin’s PTScientists, India’s Team Indus and Florida-based Moon Express — are all aiming to land on the moon at some point in 2019. Moon Express and a fifth XPrize finalist, Astrobotic, have also been chosen to work with NASA to send new science experiments to the surface of the moon. At a press conference in November, the space agency said the first commercial lunar payloads from the program could fly in 2019. They’ll likely demonstrate technology needed to develop future lunar landers and missions. It might not be a total coincidence that so many programs are aiming for the moon in 2019. This July will mark the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo landing on the moon and Neil Armstrong’s historic steps on the surface. NASA has been planning a celebration for some time now and there will be different events happening at locations across the US. If everything goes according to schedule, there may be more lunar action to celebrate in 2019. China may be able to launch its Chang’e-5 mission by the end of the year. The follow-up to Chang’e-4 would collect samples from the surface and bring them back to Earth, marking the first time that’s happened in decades.  Even more launches Of course, not every space mission will be heading to the moon in 2019. Numerous launches of satellites and missions to the International Space Station are planned. Right now at least a few of them are set to take advantage of the massive SpaceX Falcon Heavy, which we haven’t seen in action since its spectacular, if somewhat silly, demonstration launch of a Tesla last February.  SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has also promised that we’ll see the first short test flights or “hops” of his “Starship,” meant to eventually carry people to the moon, Mars and beyond. This will likely come after the demonstration of another important SpaceX product — the Crew Dragon spaceship that will carry astronauts to the ISS from American soil for the first time in several years. Crew Dragon’s unmanned test launch will be followed later in the year by the debut of Boeing’s new Starliner, which will also ferry crew to the ISS in the future.  group-photoEnlarge ImageNASA assigned nine astronauts to crew the first test flight and mission of both Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX’s Crew Dragon. NASA Another notable launch now set for February will be the Russian Soyuz rocket carrying the first 10 OneWeb satellites, which are designed to provide broadband internet service from low Earth orbit. Musk and SpaceX have promised to launch a competing service in the coming years with a constellation of up to nearly 12,000 small satellites.  Musk’s fellow billionaire space enthusiasts are looking to keep busy in the next year as well. Richard Branson’s Virgin Orbit could move closer to its own satellite launch service, while Virgin Galactic may send its first paying customers (and Branson himself) into space for sightseeing missions.  Also expect to see more from Jeff Bezos-owned Blue Origin, which will partner with NASA to send science payloads on a trip to space early in 2019. It will also compete with Musk and Branson for future payloads, human and otherwise. 1 Now playing: Watch this: Now playing: Watch this: 4:35 Target Blue Origin Elon Musk Jeff Bezos Boeing NASA Space Richard Branson SpaceX Virgin Galacticlast_img read more

first_img X 00:00 /01:32 Ed MayberryLars Gert Lose is the Ambassador of Denmark to the United StatesLars Lose was appointed to his post just over a year ago, after having served as foreign policy adviser for the Danish prime minister. A typical day for the ambassador revolves around promoting trade opportunities with Denmark, as well as working with Washington on fighting terrorism and dealing with conflicts around the world.“I think the idea of an ambassador making, you know, secret deals in dark corners, smoke-filled dark corners of the room — those days are gone,” Lose said. “What we do today is we do a lot of commercial work. I think about 60 percent of my time is helping Danish businesses getting established in the, in the U.S.”But the job also centers on diplomatic work on security and foreign policy, “talking to people in the State Department and the White House — coordinating,” Lose said. “Denmark is a very transatlantic country, together with the UK, probably the most transatlantic country in Europe. We are firmly anchored in NATO and cooperate with the U.S. whenever we can.”  Lose was in Houston to talk to the Houston Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas about trade opportunities between Texas and Denmark. There’s a significant presence of Danish businesses here.“We actually have 655 Danish companies in the U.S., creating more than 62,000 jobs in the U.S.I think it’s pretty for a small country like Denmark, and Houston is the cornerstone in all that. Ten percent of the Danish companies have a presence here, so it’s really important to Denmark. We create jobs for more than 5,000 people in Texas.”Denmark is one of 92 countries with consulates here in Houston.

first_img Unless we’re talking about $1,000 iPhones, you can’t really count on Apple to update its products with the same frequency as it once used to. But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If these machines are supposed to be so useful and wonderful then yeah they should totally last for more than twelve months without being rendered obsolete. And when an aging device does get an update, like the iPad Air and iPad Mini, it can be even more exciting because you weren’t expecting it.And we definitely weren’t expecting this. After four years, Apple just dropped a surprise new revision of the iPod Touch.Historically the “iPhone without the phone,” the iPod Touch lets users enjoy the form-factor of an iPhone along with the apps and functionality of iOS without having to tether yourself to a carrier’s data plan. This became slightly less of an issue as unlocked phones became the norm, but the iPod Touch still served a niche of parents who didn’t want to get their kids a phone just yet. I enjoyed an iPod Touch for years before getting an iPhone.And now that flagship iPhones like the XS Max are so expensive, the iPod Touch lets you dip into that ecosystem without breaking the bank. The new iPod Touch, starting at $199, just brings you closer to that experience. It has the A10 Fusion processor of the iPhone 7 for improved overall performance and specific perks like group FaceTime and augmented reality support in games like Angry Birds, Pokemon Go, and the upcoming Minecraft: Earth. Other specs include an 8MP rear camera and potential 40-hour battery life.But as someone who thinks phones are just too big, I appreciate the new iPhone Touch as a new Apple product that retains a manageable 4-inch screen. Makes me wonder where the next-gen iPhone SE is and worry about whether or not it keeps the headphone jack.These new iPod Touch models are available now in a variety of colors (Space Gray, Gold, Silver, Pink, Blue, and Red) and storage configurations (32GB, 128GB, 256GB).

first_img Share Tags: Profit Report, Statistics, WestJet Wednesday, December 5, 2018 By: The Canadian Press TORONTO — WestJet Airlines Ltd. aims to lift its profits over the next four years, predicting earnings growth of 40% on a per share basis between 2019 and 2022 after a turbulent year.Soaring fuel costs, labour unrest and steep competition at home and abroad caused Canada’s second-largest airline to incur its first loss in 13 years during the second quarter, followed by a steep year-over-year drop in the third quarter – which nonetheless bounced back into the black.Revenues and efficiency were “nowhere near” the airline’s potential, chief executive Ed Sims said at a WestJet investor conference in Toronto Tuesday.Strong demand, more branded fares and higher ancillary fees will boost its revenue per available seat mile to between two per cent and four per cent in 2019, Sims said.Branded fares bundle various perks – such as pre-reserved seats and baggage checks – at a higher total price.Earlier this year, the airline launched transatlantic service on the first three of an expected 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in a bid for business passengers that challenges Air Canada’s transatlantic dominance.A crowded domestic market resulted in “over-supply” and weaker revenue per available seat mile – a key industry metric that divides operating income by passenger carrying capacity.A freshly expanded Flair Airlines, soon-to-launch Canada Jetlines Ltd., and Air Canada’s low-cost Rouge are all crowding the budget airspace that WestJet has flown into with its four-month-old, ultra-low-cost Swoop.More news:  TRAVELSAVERS welcomes Julie Virgilio to the teamThe market saturation means WestJet will “step back from profitless volume,” Sims said.The airline aims to grow passenger capacity by between 6.5 per cent and 8.5 per cent next year, mainly through three Dreamliners embarking on non-stop service from Calgary to Dublin, Paris and London’s Gatwick Airport this spring.Only a sliver of the beefed-up capacity will come from the domestic realm, where Swoop plans to expand its fleet to 10, WestJet said.The airline is battling with Air Canada on a number of fronts. Its Encore regional service goes up against Air Canada Express and its ultra-low-cost Swoop airline recently launched flights to the U.S. and the Caribbean, in competition with Air Canada’s six-year-old Rouge unit.On top of a long-range fleet that still dwarfs WestJet’s, Air Canada’s recent deal as the lead of a consortium to buy the Aeroplan reward program from Aimia Inc. represents another potential advantage Sims hopes to reduce through a travel rewards partnership with Mastercard and the Royal Bank of Canada.Sims appeared undaunted by his biggest competitor’s purchase of Aeroplan, announced Nov. 26.“I don’t have a concern,” he said in an interview Friday.“I think competition in this space is healthy. It forces both coalitions to strengthen the relationship, and I would characterize our relationship with RBC and Mastercard as every bit as strong as our competitor’s relationship with TD, CIBC and VISA.”More news:  Hotel charges Bollywood star $8.50 for two bananas and the Internet has thoughts“We fully expect a number of our passengers to be carrying both cards,” he added.On Tuesday his airline broadened its codeshare agreement with Qantas Airways, giving WestJet access to the Australian carrier’s flights between Los Angeles and Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, along with any attendant reward miles. WestJet’s joint venture with Delta Air Lines, announced in July, opens up more of the southern U.S. and western European markets via flights to Atlanta and Barcelona. Nonetheless, luring high-flying passengers away from Air Canada without an alliance network to top it off could prove tough.WestJet remains outside the constellation of major airline alliances, comprised of Star Alliance – of which Air Canada is a member – SkyTeam and Oneworld.Next year, WestJet expects to spend about $1.1 billion on deposits and purchases related to the Dreamliners and Boeing 737 MAX narrow-body aircraft. It also plans expenditures of about $980 million in 2020 and $1.1 billion in 2021 on seven more Dreamliners.The company has signed a letter of intent to sell and lease back the first three Dreamliners, on track for delivery early next year. << Previous PostNext Post >> WestJet aims for turnaround after turbulent yearlast_img read more

each of us will have to answer What did I do Could I have done more And could it have made a difference Did I let my prejudice my indifference and my fear overwhelm my reason And how would I react next time"His most important legacy as secretary general was his rejection of the long-standing notion that the UN could not interfere in the internal affairs of a member countryHe finally persuaded the UN that a government’s suppression of its own people threatened international stability making it a proper issue for the Security Council This doctrine eventually led to the UN resolution that authorized the NATO bombing that helped end the dictatorial regime of Moammar Gaddafi in Libya in 2011Annan tried to make the position of secretary general more familiar to Americans He threw out the first pitch at a 1999 World Series game in Yankee Stadium He appeared on the children’s television show "Sesame Street" leading the squabbling Muppets in a UN group hugHe and his wife Nane danced at so many dinners and parties that William H Luers a veteran US diplomat and a past president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art once called him a "social star of New York society"Annan’s first celebrated term as secretary general was capped by the Nobel Peace Prize "In an organization that can hardly become more than its members permit he has made clear that sovereignty can not be a shield behind which member states conceal their violations" the Nobel committee wroteThe UN works best when the secretary general and the US president agree on most major issues For that reason Annan had a bruising second term as he pushed back against President George W Bush’s growing determination to invade Iraq for supposedly harboring weapons of mass destruction"He had the bad luck to be secretary general when Washington was run by a band of ideologues" Brian Urquhart a former undersecretary general who is the dean of UN commentators said of Annan in an interview "If the United States had been on his side he would have been regarded as in the class of Dag Hammarskjold" the Swedish diplomat widely regarded as the UN’s greatest secretary generalAnnan became a continual irritant to the Americans He eliminated an easy excuse for war by persuading the Iraqis to allow UN inspectors back in to search for weapons of mass destruction He emboldened the ambassadors from Chile and Mexico to withhold support for an American resolution authorizing an invasionWhen US forces invaded Iraq in March 2003 Annan deplored the American failure "to solve this problem by a collective decision"Afterward Annan infuriated the White House by telling a BBC reporter that the invasion was "illegal" and by sending a letter to Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair imploring them not to attack the Sunni Muslim city of FallujahBush aides thought the secretary general was trying to embarrass the president during his 2004 re-election campaign Randy Scheunemann a Republican foreign policy specialist told the BBC that Annan’s labeling of the war as illegal was "outrageous" and "reeks of political interference"Annan wanted to keep channels open so that the UN could help the people of Iraq after the invasion This would come to haunt the secretary general when a suicide bomber blew up UN headquarters in Baghdad in August 2003 killing his friend and troubleshooter Sergio Vieira de Mello of Brazil and 21 other UN officials"You send in some of your best people who are friends" Annan said in an interview "and they get killed for trying to sort out the aftermath of the war you didn’t support you can imagine my discouragement and melancholy It was tough"Annan was buffeted a year or so after the invasion by a conservative campaign against him over what was called the "oil-for-food" scandal Under the program developed in 1996 while Iraq was under sanctions before the invasion Saddam Hussein was allowed to sell some oil to buy food for his peopleA commission headed by former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker found that Hussein had profited illegally by almost $2 billion under the program from overpayments for oil and kickbacks for foodOutside the oil-for-food corruption according to the Volcker commission the Iraqi regime had earned even more illegal profits – almost $11 billion – by smuggling oil to Turkey Jordan and other countries Annan told reporters that most of these illegal sales had been allowed by American and British officials who "decided to close their eyes to smuggling to Turkey and Jordan because they were allies"This US-British complicity in the illegal commerce – an open secret for years – was confirmed later by Kenneth Pollack who monitored Iraqi oil sales for the Clinton White HouseThe Volcker commission did not accuse Annan of making a single penny from the oil-for-food transactions But it accused him of a failure of management for not preventing the corruptionMoreover the commission found that Annan’s son Kojo was on the secret payroll of a Swiss company trying to do business under the oil-for-food program The secretary general was cleared of trying to do anything to favor the Swiss firm but the son’s foolishness as Annan put it "caused me lots of grief"Annan was still venerated throughout the rest of the world and after retiring from the UN in 2006 he soon took on a role in the mold of former South African president Nelson Mandela as a wise noble elder trying to mediate a host of conflicts in his native AfricaKofi Atta Annan was born with a twin sister on April 8 1938 in Kumasi Ghana – in what was then the British colony of the Gold Coast His father was a senior buyer of cocoa for the Anglo-Dutch corporation Unilever He named his son in the Ghanian Akan language: Kofi means "born on Friday" and Atta means "twin"After attending schools in the Gold Coast Annan won a Ford Foundation scholarship to Macalester College in St Paul Minn After receiving a bachelor’s degree in economics in 1961 he found work as a junior administrative and budget officer with the UN’s World Health Organization in Geneva He received a master’s degree in management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1972Annan began to attract wider notice at the start of the Persian Gulf War in 1990 On a special mission to Baghdad as chief of personnel he helped persuade the Iraqis to release 900 UN employees and dependents held as hostages He also organized an airlift of hundreds of thousands of Asian workers back to their original homesBoutros-Ghali pulled Annan out of the UN’s bureaucratic ranks in 1992 naming him deputy chief of peacekeeping the most dramatic work done by the UN The next year Annan was promoted to chief of peacekeeping with the rank of undersecretary general the highest in the UN civil service Annan presided over a record expansion of peacekeeping to 75000 troops in 19 missionsIn his new role Annan drew strong criticism from some journalists and activists for failing to sound the alarm about the threat of impending genocide in Rwanda He and his aides worked behind the scenes to prevent the widespread killing in Rwanda but they said the forces of ethnic hatred were too strong to temper When the massacres erupted in the mid-1990s the UN Security Council led by the United States did little to stop them; hundreds of thousands were killedAnnan’s first marriage to Nigerian-born Titilola Alakija ended in divorce In 1984 he married Nane Lagergren a Swedish lawyer and jurist Her uncle was Raoul Wallenberg the Swedish diplomat who saved the lives of thousands of Hungarian Jews during World War II and disappeared mysteriously in 1945 while in the custody of the Soviet armyIn retirement Annan lived in Switzerland Besides his wife survivors include two children from his first marriage; and a stepdaughter A complete list of survivors could not be confirmedThough soft-spoken Annan was often eloquent He received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo just three months after the Sept 11 2001 attacks and his acceptance speech took note of that terrible day"Ladies and gentlemen" he said "we have entered the third millennium through a gate of fire If today after the horror of 11 September we see better and we see further – we will realize that humanity is indivisible New threats make no distinctions between races nations or regions

director of International Programs at Dickinson State University completed the process to become a naturalized US citizen at a ceremony in Fargo earlier this monthShe grew up in India and has spent time living in the Middle East as well but came to the US as a student originally She began the naturalization process in 2010 but noted that it was a very lengthy and somewhat expensive process—something many cannot afford"The only reason I actually became a naturalized citizen is because my country doesn’t allow dual citizenship so it was kind of bittersweet to give up citizenship of a country where I was born and brought up" she said "But I’ve been (in the US) for over 12 years so I guess this is home"While it took Polishwalla seven years to become a US citizen for others it can be a much lengthier process depending on where a person came from and what their reasons were for immigrating to the US in the first place"It is complicated it’s dealing with the federal government" she said with a laughThe ceremony was "very interesting" Polishwalla said For many people who completed the process with her the new step was emotional There was an immigration officer a guest speaker and a judge who presides over the ceremony The group did the Oath of Allegiance and then sang the national anthemIt was fun for Polishwalla to be able to meet other people both young and old from all over the world who were obtaining their citizenship as well The amount of time people have spent in the country also varies She met someone who had been in the US for 25 years before they completed their naturalization process"I think it was really cool" she said "This was my first time I’ve had friends and other people I know get naturalized but I’ve never been to a ceremony so I did not know what to expect It was nice"While she hasn’t been back to India in about three years Polishwalla looks forward to the opportunity to visit her family and friends while on vacation But for her Dickinson is home"I think I came here at an age where a lot of things affected and molded the person that I am today so it’s hard to fit back in in that society" she saidSharon Kilzer project manager
