first_img Tags: NULL The UK’s fate: Neither boom nor bust whatsapp A PAINFUL, extended soft patch, not a disastrous hard landing: that was the message from yesterday’s batch of global economic indicators. The US manufacturing survey improved in August, spectacularly refuting widespread expectations of a collapse and fuelling a market rally; the UK’s factory sector is still growing, albeit at a slower rate. Hard-core bulls and permabears alike have been confounded; the truth is to be found in the Third Way – sluggish but positive growth.The 56.3 reading in the US was the highest since May and was driven by gains in production and employment (any reading above 50 suggests increasing output). The jobs index reached its highest level so far this cycle, suggesting that the bloodbath in private sector jobs may soon be coming to an end. The softness in leading components – new orders and inventories – cautions against exuberance but the overall index argues against a double dip, even in the US, currently the weakest of the largest Western economies. There was also good news from China: its manufacturing index rose from 51.2 to 51.7, its first increase in four months; HSBC’s own Chinese index recorded an even faster bounce. India, meanwhile, continues to boom. We are hardly out of the woods – South Korea and Taiwan, which are exposed to Western markets, suffered further declines in their rate of manufacturing growth, as did Australia. Closer to home, manufacturing in the Eurozone grew at its slowest pace for six months, confirming that the recovery is losing some steam after a strong expansion. The UK’s index fell to its lowest level for nine months – but its reading of 54.3 still points to solid, above average growth. Yet as the Ernst & Young Item Club points out, this is consistent with the experience of previous manufacturing recoveries. There is no need to panic. These are merely one batch of indicators but they do confirm my long-held view: the UK is going to suffer from an extended period of weak growth but is very unlikely to suffer an outright double-dip recession. House prices will fall back, as they have already been doing (on average in the UK, if not in London’s hotspots) which will further depress consumer sentiment and borrowing power; highly regulated markets and excessive levels of taxation will cramp the recovery and reduce private sector job creation; the war on banks will continue to limit the availability of credit. This won’t be a Japanese-style, decade-long stagnation but rather a very British period of weak growth, as households readjust to more rational property prices, a smaller state, higher taxes and – in time – to substantially higher interest rates. The biggest short-term risk is not public spending cuts (which are vital) but a slowdown in the growth of the money supply. The amount of money held (mainly in bank accounts) by households and firms stagnated in July but grew at a decent annualised rate of 5.6 per cent over the last three months, suggesting pent-up demand for goods, services and assets. Non-financial companies’ holdings rose 0.9 per cent in July, pushing annual growth to 4.0 per cent. The corporate liquidity ratio (bank deposits divided by bank borrowing) excluding the struggling property sector is at the top of its historical range, implying continued corporate spending. As long as the money supply doesn’t fall back in the Autumn, the UK’s uncertain recovery ought to continue. Fingers crossed.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 21st April 2020 | By contenteditor Topics: People Strategy Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Tags: Online Gambling Victorian RG foundation issues gambling guidance for shutdown The Victorian Responsible Gaming Foundation has published new guidance to help protect consumers in the Australian state from gambling-related harm during the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.Victoria is currently in a state of shutdown in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus, with many people ordered to stay at home.The Foundation said it expects an increase in online gambling as people seek to stave off boredom, entertain themselves, de-stress and manage anxiety during the shutdown. With this, the Foundation said it may also see a rise in problem gambling.Online gambling is more risky the other types of betting, the Foundation claimed, as it is easier to bet and lose money quickly. It highlighted factors such as players not keeping track of losses and the fact that online games are available all hours of the day.“Many scenarios can lead people to gamble online,” the Foundation’s principal clinical advisor Tony Clarkson said. “During this stressful period, some people may seek escape in a new activity or take up gambling again after a break.“Those accustomed to visiting a venue to gamble may try online gambling to manage their urges. Others might choose to participate in different forms of gambling available through various apps and websites.”The Foundation noted the impact of ‘personalised’ promotional offers via email, SMS, social media, pop-up ads or a combination of all of these. It said that such promotions make people think about betting more than normal, while also make it seem like everyone will win, even though some lose more than they win.“Online gambling may not feel satisfactory, and the risk is that people may end up gambling more – and losing more – to satisfy an urge,” Clarkson said. “The bottom line is that gambling doesn’t always relieve stress, but it can generate additional stress due to financial losses, and cause a person’s wellbeing to suffer.”In addition, the Foundation picked out other risks recently highlighted by the Australian Media and Communications Authority, including illegal gambling websites.The Foundation said that while these sites may appear legitimate, they operate outside Australian laws and do not comply with national customer protection regulations. It said some customers reported being unable to retrieve winnings, while others saw unauthorised withdrawals of funds from their bank accounts.For consumers in Victoria negatively affected by their own or someone else’s gambling, the Foundation said residents can call the 24/7 Gambler’s Help service for confidential support or visit its dedicated website.last_img read more

first_img January 18, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Letter to Somaliland’s president about his unequal battle with newspaper Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia Mr. Dahir Rayale KahinPresident of the RepublicHargeysa, SomalilandParis, 18 January 2007Dear Mr. President,Justice has played very little role in what has happened with the newspaper Haatuf. Ever since the arrest of Yusuf Abdi Gabode and Ali Abdi Dini, the entire case has been marked by unfairness, procedural irregularities, personal revenge and the denial of democratic principles. These journalists are being prosecuted by the Somaliland government on charges of “insulting” the president and his aides under the 1962 Somali criminal code, although it was superseded by the 2004 press law.With no other means of defence than their lawyer, they have had to face the entire repressive arsenal available to the government – police, judicial system and prisons. Jailed in violation of the democratic principle that imprisonment is a disproportionate punishment for press offences, they have not been allowed visits. You can see that the battle is not an equal one.Somaliland is not the first country where a president or prime minister has been cut to the quick by a newspaper and has brought his wrath to bear on the journalists responsible. It is, unfortunately, very common in Africa. But government by means of revenge not only violates the freedom which the press needs, but is also dangerous for the country concerned. Jailing journalists for what they have written does nothing to repair the misconduct for which they may have been responsible. On the contrary, instead of obtaining redress in a fair and balanced debate, you have ended up being blamed for two high-profile political prisoners and a discredited judicial system, and with a reputation for inflexibility and inhumaneness.Rightly or wrongly, you now appear to have been motivated by a desire for personal revenge rather than acting as guarantor of justice and national harmony. Furthermore, having the editors of a popular newspaper imprisoned is not the way to keep the peace. On the contrary, by polarising and swelling the ranks of your opponents, your ill-considered attack on Haatuf has just served the cause of division and anger. In short, this is not how Reporters Without Borders sees freedom of expression.The time has come to heal the wounds. The authorities must do two things. Firstly, they must free Haatuf’s journalists and employees. And secondly, they must begin a frank and constructive dialogue with the press. While, regardless of their political views, Somaliland’s journalists must come up with new and original ideas to win the confidence of the authorities. This is the only way that a degree of calm will be restored, that the press will be able to work freely and without hindrance, and that the government will be able to claim to have guaranteed one of the basic principles of democracy in a geopolitical environment in which war cries have tended to dominate for decades.Somaliland’s independent journalists today feel they have entered a period of defiance, hostility, vengeance, suffering and threats, and the only ones to benefit are those who would like to shake the edifice that has been built since 1991. Reporters Without Borders hopes you will be open to these arguments and that you will be able to take the appropriate measures.Respectfully,Robert MénardSecretary-General Organisation News March 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Somalia SomaliaAfrica Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts to go furthercenter_img RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists RSF_en January 8, 2021 Find out more February 24, 2021 Find out more News News News SomaliaAfrica RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland regionlast_img read more

She said the hearing could not be held because the judge was taking a vacation.Anouzla was arrested in Rabat on 17 September for posting a link to an article in the Spanish daily El País, which in turn had a link to a video attributed to Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).He was freed on 25 October after five weeks in “preventive detention” but continues to face a possible sentence of 10 to 30 years in prison on various charges including providing “material assistance” to a terrorist organization and “defending terrorist crimes.” Both the Arabic and French-language versions of Lakome have been blocked since 17 October despite his requests for an end to the blocking. On 7 January, he submitted a request to this effect to the National Agency for Telecommunications Regulation (ANRT), which subsequently told him by phone that he should address his request to the prosecutor’s office. Anouzla has received no response to the request to the prosecutor’s office that he submitted in early January.“We condemn the investigating judge’s endless postponement of Anouzla’s hearings,” said Reporters Without Borders research director Lucie Morillon. “The judicial authorities are deliberately dragging this case out. We call on them to have the courage to drop all the charges and finally close a case that is embarrassing them for good reason. They must also stop blocking his website.”After creating an Anouzla support committee, journalists and media freedom defenders have undertaken all the necessary steps for the creation of a media freedom NGO in Morocco. But the Rabat prefecture has refused to consent to the NGO’s registration twice, on 9 and 12 May.A staunch media freedom advocate, Anouzla recently received the Washington-based Project on Middle East Democracy’s “Leaders for Democracy” award and was one of the “100 information heroes” that Reporters Without Borders published on 3 May, World Press Freedom Day.

first_imgStudies from temperate and tropical regions have shown that variability in the distribution of benthos exists at different spatial scales. There are very few similar studies from polar systems, the shallows of which represent some of the most intensely disturbed habitats on the planet. Variability in the abundances of the five most common macrofauna was examined at three spatial scales, metres, tens of metres and hundreds of metres, in the shallows (5-25 m depth) of Adelaide Island, West Antarctic Peninsula. Whilst significant community change occurs along a depth gradient at the study sites, not all of the common species studied showed clear depth-related patterns of distribution. Furthermore, although abundance patterns varied between the organisms, consistent depth-related trends in the spatial scale contributing most to the variability were observed for four of the five species. For four species the relative importance of large-scale variability (between sites) decreased from 5 to 25 in depth, whilst small-scale variability (between replicates) increased along the depth gradient. Variation between sites is probably largely driven by ice disturbance, which becomes less frequent with depth. Conversely, small-scale patchiness is promoted by biological interactions, which become relatively more influential as community complexity and species richness increase along the depth gradient.last_img read more

The former NFL quarterback got engaged to Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, a South African model and Miss Universe 2017. He shared a photo of the proposal on Instagram, writing a sweet message to his fiancee in the caption. “Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world,” he wrote. “You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.” Tebow told PEOPLE about his feelings before the big moment.“I actually wasn’t really nervous. I was excited,” he said. “I wanted everything to be perfect and to go smoothly. But I wasn’t nervous to actually ask her.” The engagement reportedly took place at Tebow’s family’s farm in Florida, according to PEOPLE. Family and friends joined the couple immediately after to celebrate. Nel-Peters also shared the photos on her Instagram, writing, “Any dreams I’ve ever had, you’ve exceeded them all! I love you and I can’t wait to spend forever with you!” “I’m so excited for the wedding,” she told PEOPLE. Tebow often shares images with Nel-Peters on his account. When she passed on her Miss Universe crown in December, he shared a supportive message, commending her for her work in the role. “You represented Miss. Universe so well!” he wrote. “You’re an incredible role model, and carry yourself with beauty, kindness, and grace. I’m so proud of you!”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgAccording to polls conducted last year by the Pew Research Center and The Wall Street Journal/NBC News, many Americans are souring on higher education. There is a concern among many that college is becoming an opportunity limited to the privileged, and a growing sense that the expense doesn’t justify the return. Other detractors paint colleges as anti-American barracks in the culture wars.Harvard is perhaps the best-known institution of higher education in the U.S., but with that popularity comes a vulnerability to stereotypes.Harvard students are some of the brightest and most ambitious, but they are still regular people who need to relax and pursue interests outside of school. Harvard’s new Instagram series, #HarvardUnwind, seeks to showcase that lighter side of the student body. Students like music and TV that they are reluctant to admit to. They have profound thoughts but also puzzling pet peeves, and, just like anyone who has been working hard, they are eager for an excuse to take a break.Follow #HarvardUnwind on Instagram to see how Harvard students unwind.,Dan Kim ’19Q: How do you take a break?“I like to run, I’m actually going to go on a run later today. It’s very therapeutic, and there are a lot of really nice running routes around here. Like Fresh Pond, down the river. There’s a castle all the way down in Somerville. It’s just a way to stop thinking about things.”,Sarah King ’21Q: If Harvard had a smell, what would it be?“Mulch. It doesn’t smell like mulch ever, really, but when I came for Visitas, I think they redid the mulch. I came in through Agassiz, and they have really good landscaping, so I think they had fresh mulch. So that was the first thing I smelled here, and now every time I smell mulch I’m just like [inhales], ‘Ah, Harvard.’ ”,Haley Daniels ’18Q: What’s a strong opinion you have about something trivial?“I get furious if someone doesn’t tell me that they are going to cut their hair before they get a haircut. Because I’m being affected the most by having to watch you have different hair. That’s jarring. I should at least get a warning.”,Sam Benkelman ’20Q: What blows your mind?“There are a few languages in the world that use clicks in them, and that phoneme is a remarkably easy one to produce. Everyone can do it; children will do it automatically when they’re growing up. Yet it’s only found in a few thousand native speakers. So that’s kind of mind-blowing, to wonder why don’t more languages have clicks in them.”,Riya Sood ’20Q: What’s your guilty pleasure?“Probably occasionally listening to pop music because I claim to be a very big alternative fan — which I am — but we all have our moments. I generally go to throwbacks, so pretty much anyone who was singing in the early/mid-2000s, that’s great: Britney, Demi Lovato, Jonas Brothers, the fun stuff.”,Mollie Todt ’18Q: What’s taking up too much of your time?“That’s a really difficult question because I’m such an organizer. I really delegate well. So, I guess I would have to say sleep. I wish I could get less of it, but I have to have nine hours in order to be able to function. I work over at St. Peter’s School in Cambridge, so I’m up at 6:30.”,Julian Nunally ‘17, J.D. ’20Q: What’s something you’re interested in that most people don’t know about?“I went here for undergrad; I studied comparative religion. Now I’m in the Law School, and I want to be a minister. Most people don’t see the connection there. I think law and religion have a lot of things in common, basically in how you interpret the text, whether you use the literal meaning or you use context to imbue meaning into that text, whether reading either a statute, or a contract, or a holy text. I think that’s really cool.“So, in practical use, I really want to be a minister of a church, but I also want to run non-profits off of that. There’s a lot of laws surrounding what a non-profit can or can’t do, and so the ability to manipulate those laws in order to do more good is where the Law School comes in. But also, there’s a lot of moral issues that law can’t fix. So, in order to fill in those holes, I think religion gives you that morality to fix.”,Gabby Sims ’18 and Kirsi Anselmi-Stith ’18Q: What’s your favorite show right now?Anselmi-Stith: We’re on a “Bachelor” kick right now.Sims: We’re really into the latest season.Anselmi-Stith: It’s just smutty TV to distract from any larger goals.Unfortunately, the subject matter of this interaction lapsed before the roll out of #HarvardUnwind could be finalized, and was not posted to Instagram.,Jessie Laurore ‘18Q: What’s your favorite spot on campus?“My room in Cabot, hands down. I meditate there. I really like decorating, so I took my time. I’m very proud of it. I have my plants. I dunno, I just try to make it a space where I feel really at home: very warm.”,Kun Luo, M.Arch. ‘20Q: What’s something you loved as an undergrad that you never thought you’d give up?“I was a drummer. I had a band, I was kind of a drum teacher, and I had performances every weekend. But now I totally lost all of that. I never play drums anymore.”last_img read more

first_img Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 8, 2017 In the corporate world, employees leaving a job are often asked to sit through an exit interview with HR about their time at the company. That concept doesn’t exist for Broadway performers, but we love checking in with stars as they finish up a successful run. Danielle Brooks received a Tony nomination for her delightfully boisterous Broadway debut as Sofia in The Color Purple. Brooks will leave the Tony-winning revival at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on November 13. In her Exit Interview, Brooks shares why she’s leaving, what she’ll miss and how the role has changed her.How did you feel when you first got this job?I was super elated. I couldn’t believe it. When my manager told me they had offered me the job, I kept saying “Are you serious? No, are you serious?!”How do you feel now that you’re leaving?I feel ready. I’m going to miss working with my castmates and John Doyle. I feel like I have gained so much from this experience as an actress and as a person and have given a lot of myself every night onstage in service to those who come to see our play. Now, it’s time for the refueling of my mind, body and spirit.What are three words you would use to describe your experience?Spiritual. Taxing. Earned.What was the easiest thing about this job?I don’t think there was anything easy about this job. I can’t think of anything.What was the hardest thing?Every night it’s been something different. Sometimes it’s difficult to release the character at the end of the night; sometimes I’m vocally tired and I have to push through. Other times, I’m tired of laughing and all I want to do is cry, and others I’m tired of crying and all I want to do is laugh.What was the highlight of your time at this job?Getting to perform for my family. Having both my parents watch their first born live their dream was a highlight. And also my baby brother getting to see his big sister in his first Broadway show. That I will forever cherish.What skills do you think are required for future job applicants?Number one: she has to be honest. Don’t come in not being authentic. She has to have a sense of humor, an old soul, backbone, grit and a lot of heart.What advice would you give to future employees in your job position?For anyone ever tackling the role of Sofia, you have to come from an honest place. Don’t ever play for laughs and don’t allow the character to ever have pity on herself. She represents strength and perseverance. She’s the strongest bird in the pack that looses her wings, so it’s even more challenging for her to gain her strength back.How do you think you’ve grown?After doing this play over 400 times, I am finally convinced that I am and have always been capable of playing Sofia. What people might not know is that the casting director asked to see me; I didn’t ask to be seen. I had so many doubts and fears coming into this project that I had masked from the hardcore desire to play this part. Some days it took everything in me to step on that stage; I had so much anxiety the first few months of the show, but then something happened in my spirit. Maybe it was the audience, maybe it was the words of the play, but I realized my purpose is greater than my fears. So from then on, I was ready to go out there and share myself without any hesitation.Why are you leaving?I’m leaving because it’s time. I’ve stretched myself and grown as much as I could in this play. It’s time to learn new lessons from another character. I’ll be back to engulf in the bliss of the Great White Way again.

first_img Diálogo:met with the Chief of the Colombian Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Juan Pablo Rodriguez Barragán, to talk about this and other issues. General Rodriguez: There is no question that the use of new technologies is beneficial to preventing and controlling drug trafficking in the region. Also, the effectiveness of troops deployed to conduct the mission will reinforce the results and seizures made in the fight against illicit trafficking. These systems will improve real-time information sharing between regional countries and will allow us to focus efforts and coordinate different ways to combat the threat posed by transnational crime. Diálogo: How do you expect the new Regional Domain Awareness and Cooperative Situational Information Integration systems will help/benefit your country and the region in the fight against transnational illicit trafficking? General Rodriguez: Since the current government took office and until 2013, we’ve trained more than 18,000 members of the Armed and Security Forces from 63 countries. In other words, we trained about 6,000 Americans, 9,000 Central Americans, over 500 people from the Caribbean, 2,800 South Americans and over 300 people from Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Oceania. In 2013, specifically, we trained more than 8,000 people from 48 nations, while the Colombian Police and Military have cooperated with members of the Mexican, Costa Rican, Peruvian, Salvadoran, Honduran, Guatemalan and Panamanian Armed Forces, among others, with a greater focus on those areas related to citizen security, prevention and crime control, reinforcement of military and police specialties, and the fight against international drug trafficking. In early April, military leaders from 12 nations gathered in Guatemala City to attend the 9th Central American Security Conference (CENTSEC), where they discussed the potential issues and strategies of Operation Martillo, as well as the transformation that the armed forces must undergo to confront the new threats, involving Cyber Warfare and Energy Security. Diálogo: What are the contributions currently made by the Colombian Armed Forces to Operation Martillo, and what are the long term plans? General Rodriguez: First of all, I intend to continue with a task already underway, which is a priority not only for the Ministry of National Defense, but also for the Armed Forces’ leadership, which aims at the wellbeing and legal security of all men and women in the institution. Secondly, I intend to continue to strengthen intelligence as the main way to protect military forces, especially from current threats such as cyber warfare and cyber terrorism. Also, as my predecessors have done, I would like to continue strengthening inter-agency and joint operations, which have allowed the current government to conduct the peace process. General Rodriguez: To continue the military disruption against terrorism, so that we can continue to obtain strategic results to allow the national government to continue its positive dialogue for the benefit of the Colombian State, with an absolute respect for human rights and International Humanitarian Law. Diálogo: What is the main current challenge of the Colombian Armed Forces? Diálogo: What are your immediate goals as commander of the Colombian Armed Forces? Diálogo: What does it take to defeat this and other threats? General Rodriguez: Colombia is the main contributor in the fight against drug trafficking. We have disrupted powerful cartels that used to smuggle huge amounts of drugs into the United States and Europe. With other countries, we are helping to close routes and control the air space, hence preventing the transit of drugs from our country towards consumer nations. Presently, we are a leader in training countries to counter drug trafficking. Diálogo: What collaboration programs do the Armed Forces of Colombia have with those of other countries in the region? Diálogo: What is the impact of illicit trafficking in military and security environments? Diálogo: What are the benefits of working with other nations, such as the United States, to confront illicit trafficking and other regional threats? General Rodriguez: In the military arena, the threat [terrorism] uses drug trafficking as its main source of funding due to the profit obtained with that activity; in the field of security, they use logistic resources to attack the civil population and the economy of the country. General Juan Pablo Rodriguez Barragán: The Colombian Military Forces have an illicit crop eradication strategy, known as “Plan Resplandor,” (Radiance), based on spraying, using mobile eradication groups as well as soldiers and police officers to do it manually. We are also reinforcing the Counter Drug Special Brigade (BRACNA), which will have a fourth battalion with the aim of strengthening spraying efforts for this year. It is important to point out that the BRACNA is confronting the drug trafficking chain in a comprehensive way. Likewise, we are reinforcing the blockade and interdiction efforts made by the National Navy, with sea patrol boats built with nationally developed technology; and by the Air Force, by using their radars in strategic areas. Diálogo: What is the participation of the Colombian Armed Forces in the fight against drug trafficking? General Rodriguez: Undoubtedly, for a country like Colombia, technology transfers are essential, as well as knowing which transnational organizations are directly involved with drug trafficking. General Rodriguez: States should conduct a higher joint effort to educate new generations, in view of the risks involved in drug trafficking in all its stages, and the impact of which has an enormously high cost for the development of societies in the world.

first_img The training exercises were designed to help the men and women of the nine naval forces improve cooperation and operational efficiency as they carry out joint missions at sea in support of ground initiatives. For example, in one exercise, amphibious and air transport teams worked together to provide humanitarian assistance to the civilian population – including medical care, food and water. During the simulation, a group of Chilean military staff and four U.S. Marines generated different scenarios to test the skills and responses of the naval forces. They arrived on the beach at Pichidangui on an LCU, known as the “Canave,” and LCMS which are known as “Reyes” and “Fuentes,” respectively. As the exercise continued, service members were transported aboard a LSDH-91 Sargento Aldea, an amphibious assault vessel, a barge, a Chilean Navy multipurpose frigate, a Mexican Navy ship, a Mexican Navy helicopter, two AS-332L Super Puma helicopters belonging to the Chilean Navy, and four CH-46 Sea Knight helicopters from the U.S. Navy, according to Infodefensa. Training at the Partnership of the Americas 2014 wasn’t limited to drills. “Before the practical part, the exercise included lectures by experts in different areas. That is the challenge when operating with other navies,” said Rear Admiral Arturo Undurraga, Commander of the Amphibious Taskforce. The navies of nine countries from the Americas – including seven from Latin American nations –gathered in Chile August for “Partnership of the Americas 2014,” a series of joint training exercises featuring drills on providing humanitarian assistance to civilians during natural disasters. About 1,500 participants from Colombia, Paraguay, Argentina, Perú, Mexico, Ecuador, Brazil, Canada and the United States measured their ability to respond during a simulated 8.8 magnitude earthquake and tsunami. Natural disasters cause countless deaths in Latin America and the Caribbean. “It is critical to strengthen regional partnerships and improve the capabilities of these security missions,” said Brigadier General David Coffman, commander, U.S. Marine Corps Forces South. Coffman made his remarks during the closing ceremonies of the program, which was held August 12-22 in the coastal towns of Valparaíso and Pichidangui. By Dialogo October 01, 2014 Improving cooperation and efficiencycenter_img A history of cooperation Partnership of the Americas 2014 was coordinated by the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM), which works with Latin American and Caribbean security forces to help civilian populations during natural disasters, such as earthquakes and hurricanes. For example, the navies of Latin America coordinated relief efforts to help Haiti after that country was struck by a 7.3 magnitude earthquake in January 2010. The earthquake killed about 316,000 people in Haiti and destroyed or severely damaged 250,000 homes and 30,000 commercial buildings. At its peak, SOUTHCOM’s response to relief efforts included 22,000 soldiers. Many of the Armed Forces of countries in the Americas and in the Caribbean also cooperate in the fight against transnational criminal organizations, such as Los Rastrojos, the Clan de Usúga, and Mexican transnational criminal organizations like the Sinaloa Cartel and Los Zetas. Partnership of the Americas is not the only cooperative training exercise for Latin American navies. The multinational training exercise known as UNITAS is also coordinated by SOUTHCOM. Such training exercises help navies throughout the region establish trust and improve their coordination, which means they can respond more quickly to a regional or global crisis. “These exercises are necessary for all agreements in order for interoperability and joint efforts,” said Raúl Benítez Manaut, a security analyst at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). “It involves a division of labor where each naval force makes their greatest contribution. Latin American armed forces have to train and be prepared to respond to a country when necessary.”last_img read more

The Legislative Affairs team is taking over the Compliance Blog this morning to bring you updates on the Financial CHOICE Act – a piece of legislation that has gotten quite a bit of news recently. At nearly 600 pages, the Act contains dozens of detailed provisions – some NAFCU is in favor of, and some not. To save you the trouble of reading through the entire bill and enduring the portions that aren’t relevant to credit unions, I thought I’d write this blog to give you a brief summary of the salient parts, what to expect in the coming weeks, and what NAFCU is doing to make sure the bill helps your credit union.But before we get started, I want to provide a bit of context. First introduced and passed in the House Financial Services Committee last year, the CHOICE Act is designed to replace large portions of the Dodd-Frank Act. Although the bill passed Committee last year, it never made it to a full House vote. Fulfilling his promise in this new Congress, Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) reintroduced the CHOICE Act on Wednesday as H.R. 10. This version contains several changes to last year’s version – hence the informal moniker, CHOICE 2.0.NAFCU is supportive of the Financial CHOICE Act as it contains a number of regulatory relief provisions for credit unions.   Issues we are pleased to see covered in CHOICE 2.0 include: continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgThe company’s biggest revenue-generating operations, which is its scheduled airline services, booked 29.23 percent less income in the first quarter at $654.53 million, down from $924.93 million. The company’s expenses, on the other hand, had not fallen as drastically. Its total operating expenses, which include costs for flight operations, maintenance and repairs, dropped by 9.92 percent to $945.71 million from $1.05 billion. Irfan explained, that despite a slight improvement in airline traffic in recent weeks following the easing of travel restrictions, the number of passengers was still down 90 percent, while 70 percent of its aircraft remained grounded.The coronavirus outbreak has devastated the aviation industry. The share of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP) spent on air transportation is expected to be halved in 2020 at 0.5 percent of the global GDP or $434 billion, according to an International Air Transport Association (IATA) report released on June 9. National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia booked a net loss of US$120 million in the first quarter of this year, in stark contrast to profitability achieved last year, as the COVID-19 pandemic hit travel-related industries hard.The publicly listed airline saw a 30 percent year-on-year slump in revenue to US$768.12 million in the first quarter from $1.1 billion in the same period last year. As a consequence, it booked a $120 million loss compared to $20.48 million profit in the January-March period of 2019.“This industry is indeed a very tough industry. We are talking about a single-digit margin. So, when a disruption happens, the implication to our bottom line, cash-wise, is immediate and drastic,” Garuda Indonesia president director Irfan Setiaputra said on Wednesday during Inventure’s Indonesia Brand Forum 2020 webinar. Topics :center_img As the number of airline passengers has plunged, airlines are forced into reducing flight routes and pursuing other measures to cut costs. “Passenger revenue contributes more than 80 percent of Garuda Indonesia’s total revenue. With the decline in traffic, there needs to be a strategy to reduce the flight variable costs,” the company wrote in a statement published by Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) on May 29.According to the statement, written in response to the local bourse’s request from May 12 for information regarding the impact of the pandemic, the company continued to reduce flight routes, both domestic and international. Operations on international routes to the Middle East and China have been halted until further notice. Services on other international routes have been cut to around 60 percent to 80 percent against normal flight frequency. In a revised statement the company issued on June 15, Garuda reported it had laid off 18 employees due to the pandemic, while 825 were furloughed as of March 31. Meanwhile, Garuda Pilot Association (APG) chairperson Muzaeni told The Jakarta Post on June 2 that the airline had terminated the contracts of 180 pilots as a result of the cutbacks on flights.In an annual general shareholders meeting on June 5, Garuda shareholders agreed to fully utilize its 2019 net profit of US$6.98 million as the company’s reserved funds. Last year was the first time the company managed to booked profits after booking losses for two consecutive years — with net losses of $231.16 million in 2018 and $216.28 million in 2017. This year, however, analysts predict that COVID-19 will cause the company to suffer another net loss. “We firmly believe that the sluggish figures for March 2020 are not the end but, rather, the beginning,” Mirae Asset Sekuritas Indonesia analysts Lee Young-jun wrote in a report published on May 18. “The management is trying to focus on cargo business and chartered flights while increasing efficiencies and lowering costs. However, none of these are effective and easy to make up [for] the losses,” he added.Going into the third quarter of the year, the postponement, or even cancellations, of haj fights will be the biggest risk factor for the airline, as these flights contributed about 5 percent to the company’s revenue in 2019, the analyst’s report says. On June 2, the Indonesian government officially announced that it had decided to cancel the 2020 haj.The airline’s stock, traded on the IDX under the ticker code GIAA, has lost about half of its value since the start of the year and closed at Rp 244 per share on Friday. That compares with the benchmark Jakarta Composite Index’s 21 percent drop so far this year.“Financially, 2020 will go down as the worst year in the history of aviation. On average, every day of this year will add US$230 million to industry losses,” IATA director general and CEO Alexandre de Juniac said in a statement published on June 9. The IATA reports that airlines are expected to lose $84.3 billion this year.last_img read more

The project will serve 192 educators and librarians and approximately 3,000 children this school year.“The work to enhance computer science and STEM education is an effort that involves many organizations,” said AIU interim executive director Rosanne Javorsky. “While school districts are at the forefront of implementing computer science instruction, many other groups are also involved, such as community libraries, centers of higher learning, businesses, non-profits and local foundations. Each organization represents one piece of the larger effort, and together we are preparing today’s students to succeed in the world of tomorrow.”The Baldwin-Whitehall School District also benefited from a $35,000 PAsmart Targeted grant to support computer science learning in three elementary schools.“The Baldwin-Whitehall School District has been making substantial investments in computer science education for all students,” said Superintendent Randal Lutz. “Through the awarding of the PA Smart Grant, we have been able to provide an introduction to computer science for all elementary children in grades K-5. As a recognized leader in public education, BWSD, with the support of Governor Wolf and PAsmart, continues to provide exceptional opportunities for all children to be prepared for what will come next.”PAsmart has made Pennsylvania a national leader in STEM and computer science education. Accomplishments under Governor Wolf include:Ranking second in the nation for investments in computer science education;Advancing Pennsylvania to third in the nation in the number of nationally-recognized STEM ecosystems and making the commonwealth the fifth largest producer of STEM graduates;Establishing standards for computer science education in all Pennsylvania schools;Joining the Governors’ Partnership for K-12 Computer Science, a bipartisan initiative organized by, to advance policy, funding, and professional learning for computer science education.The State Board of Education recently directed the Department of Education to begin the process of updating Pennsylvania’s science standards.For more information about pursuing an education and career in Pennsylvania at any stage of life, visit PAsmart.

To remind, Offshore Energy Today reported that five oiled birds had been spotted until July 29.In a later update, HMDC said that a sixth oiled bird, a Storm Petrel, was discovered on the platform on the morning of July 30. The bird did not survive.Observations from surveillance flights, satellite imagery, and the vessels over the past several days indicate concentrations of oil have decreased to the point that mechanical recovery and dispersion operations are no longer possible.According to the consortium, other response efforts will continue as needed. These include vessel and flight surveillance, satellite images, and tracker buoys to monitor for any presence of hydrocarbons.Demobilization of vessels continues, and production from the Hibernia platform remains shut-in while HMDC continues its investigation.Spotted a typo?

However, according to a new report from the conservative American Enterprise Institute (AEI), married heads of households have done much better than their unmarried counterparts.Family structure is one of the most important factors in whether a person will be educated, wealthy, and married, AEI found.Looking at 33 years of economic data, the report notes that married heads of households saw their incomes increase from approximately $63,000 per year in 1979 to $85,000 per year by 2012.Conversely, unmarried heads of households saw their incomes rise from $28,000 per year in 1979 to just $32,000 in 2012. read more

Share 396 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Tweet President of the Dominica Nurses Association, Rosie Felix (file photo)An announcement of twenty Cuban nurses to complement the Princess Margaret Hospital’s nursing staff will bring some relief but President of the Dominica Nurses Association is concerned that it might create additional challenges.The association has been advocating for increased staff to address a shortage of nurses due to migration, better working conditions and better pay on behalf of its membership.Health Minister Dr Kenneth Darroux and acting principal nursing officer, Terrilia Ravalliere announced at a press conference on Tuesday 1 May 2018 that the Cuban nurses will arrive here shortly.“It’s not the first time the ministry is bring Cuban nurses to Dominica but what I will want the Dominican Nursing Council to ensure is that these nurses are proficient in English,” President of the Dominica Nurses Association, Rosie Felix told Vibes News on Wednesday 2 May.The nurses’ ability to communicate in English is critical, Mrs. Felix explained, as otherwise “our patients will suffer, the health system will surer, the quality of care will be compromised”.“Anytime you have a relationship with someone and the persons don’t understand each other because of a language barrier, you’re gonna have problems, you’re gonna have increased risk for medication error, [since] all our drugs are labeled in English,” Mrs. Felix explained.The Ministry of Health and Social Services has requested five midwives, five community health nurses, two intensive care nurses, two accident and emergency nurses, as well as six registered nurses from the Cuban Government.Mrs. Felix said while the additional nurses will bring some relief, if they are unable to speak English, this will create a stressful situation for nurses who would be forced to supervise what they are doing with respect to administering prescriptions, among other duties.“Can you imagine being a patient and a Spanish speaking doctor or nurse is speaking to you? How do you understand,” Mrs. Felix questioned.She emphasized that “I’m not against Cuban nurses” as they have assisted with training Dominican nurses in the past, and that all nurses are “welcome” here irrespective of where they hail from.“I hope the Ministry of Health and our Dominica Nursing Council who is there for licensing of nurses and for the safety of public would take that into consideration. I’m sure it would be immediate relief but we don’t want relief that brings trouble,” Mrs. Felix said.last_img read more

There’s no rush, as there are so many races at home and abroad for him later in the year. “I think he’s definitely getting to the right place now and hopefully he’ll head for the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot. I think he’ll probably need another racecourse gallop between now and then. “Having said that, if he wasn’t cherry ripe, we wouldn’t send him to Ascot just for a day out. He’s a very good horse and we’ll look after him. “He’s only a five-year-old, he was a very good three-year-old and was knocking on the door in Group Ones last year. “I think we’ll have an exciting year with him.” Moviesta is on course for a Royal Ascot return following a racecourse gallop at the Curragh on Sunday. Not beaten far in the Nunthorpe at York and the Prix de l’Abbaye at Longchamp last season, the five-year-old has recently moved from Bryan Smart’s yard to join sprint king Eddie Lynam. Part-owner Ritchie Fiddes is hoping to see his charge line up in next month’s Diamond Jubilee Stakes if he continues to please his trainer in the next few weeks. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgA Florida man is paralyzed and behind bars after an attempted murder plot gone wrong.Prosecutors say 65-year-old Henry Herbig drove across the country to carry out an elaborate scheme to murder his estranged wife.Herbig, dressed in a disguise, and armed with a gun, and wrench arrived at his wife’s Virginia Beach home on Sep. 8Additionally, he had zip ties, duct tape, and trash bags in his possession.Investigators say he first attacked his stepdaughter outside the home by hitting her over the head with the wrench before going inside and using the same weapon on his wife.The attack was put to an end by Herbig’s stepdaughter who got a hold of a gun and shot him, severing his spine.Police later searched the suspect’s car and recovered a written manifesto detailing the murder plot from beginning to end.Prosecutors believe he planned to stage the murder as a home invasion.Herbig is being held at the Virginia Beach jail without bond on multiple charges, including aggravated malicious wounding and breaking and entering with the intent to commit a felony.He is expected to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Dec. 6.last_img read more

He needs to be one of our main scorers every game, but his other job is to take the best offensive player on the other team and try to stop him.”Bucksport trailed Sumner 10-5 after the first quarter. By halftime, the Bucks led 20-10.“We tend to be a slow-starting team for whatever reason,” Deans said. “The kids really stepped it up in the second quarter.“That’s really what we want to base our team on — being a great defensive team.”Bucksport (2-0) will host Deer Isle-Stonington on Wednesday.

first_imgBy Martyn HermanLONDON, England (Reuters) – Gareth Southgate was handed the onerous task of ending England’s decades of soccer under-achievement at major tournaments when he agreed a four-year deal to become national team’s football manager yesterday.The 46-year-old former international defender had been in temporary charge since Sam Allardyce quit 67 days into his reign in September after becoming embroiled in a newspaper sting.Southgate, who played for Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough, impressed the FA during four matches as interim manager and was the overwhelming favourite to secure the job.“I am extremely proud to be appointed England manager. However, I’m also conscious that getting the job is one thing, now I want to do the job successfully,” Southgate said in a statement issued by the Football Association after a lengthy board meeting at its St George’s Park headquarters.“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the players over these past four games and I think there’s huge potential.“For me, the hard work starts now. There are ways of working that we need to establish to give ourselves a better chance of success in the future.”The mild-mannered Southgate’s first game as permanent manager will be away to Germany in a friendly in March before a home 2018 World Cup qualifier a few days later against Lithuania.It was against Germany that, as a player, Southgate achieved unwanted notoriety for his penalty shootout miss in the semi-finals of the European Championship in 1996 at Wembley.He later starred in a pizza company TV commercial alongside Stuart Pearce and Chris Waddle wearing a brown paper bag over his head as they teased him over his miss.GOOD POSITIONEngland last won a major trophy when they lifted the World Cup at home under Alf Ramsey in 1966 and have not reached the semi-finals of a top international tournament since Euro ’96.Southgate’s mission will be to continue the good work he did at the Under-21s now he is in charge of the senior team.They are already in a good position to reach the World Cup, topping their group after four games with Southgate overseeing wins over Scotland and Malta and a draw with Slovenia.Southgate’s appointment is no surprise and FA chief executive Martin Glenn described him as a leader and a winner.“He performed extremely well during the four games he was in temporary charge and he impressed us during a tough interview process,” Glenn said in a statement.Southgate is the youngest full-time England manager since Steve McClaren was appointed, aged 54, in 2006.This is only his third permanent role as a manager, having been at the helm of Middlesbrough from 2006-09 until he was sacked the season after they were relegated from the top flight.He was in charge of England’s Under-21s from 2013 to 16, working with the likes of Harry Kane, John Stones and Raheem Sterling, all of whom are now part of the senior squad.As a player Southgate earned 57 caps and he will now be expected to bring the passion he had as a player to the job of manager as England bid to return to the international elite.last_img read more

first_imgCMC – Bermuda’s cricketers have flown to Oman for the ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League B without Rodney Trott after an administrative oversight regarding his passport forced the vice-captain to stay at home.Trott, 32, who impressed as a stand-in captain midway through the T20 World Cup Qualifier in Dubai last month, has been grounded because of a bureaucratic technicality, as his passport expires within six months of the team’s departure for the Middle East.Trott has blamed the Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) for missing out on the trip.“It is something that could have been avoided,” Trott, who claims the BCB was in possession of his passport since Bermuda hosted the T20 World Cup Americas Qualifier in August, told the Royal Gazette newspaper.“It’s disappointing because I’ve wasted my time with all the training, only to be told at the last minute that I can’t go. This could have been sorted out during the summer when we had the tournament.“My passport is going to expire in the first week of March, but when you travel to countries like that your passport has to be valid for at least six months.“I got away with it in Dubai and have been telling them (the BCB) since summer that I needed a new passport.”But BCB executive director Cal Blankendal hit back, saying: “The board had offered to assist with British passport applications for all players, and those players who came in and provided the documentation to get their passport received theirs with the assistance of the board.“The responsibility of having a valid passport for travel is the responsibility of the passport holder, as they are the only ones who can make an application in person. There were others who asked for services and received theirs, and they have travelled.”Trott’s place in the team has been taken by 38-year-old Coolidge Durham.Trott was initially named as Terryn Fray’s vice-captain in the 15-man squad for the 50-overs format, with the team looking to bounce back after a disappointing time in Dubai, where Dion Stovell stood down as captain for personal reasons.Bermuda lost all six of their matches, but Trott came away with his reputation as a potential leader enhanced.The CWC Challenge League B is the first of three overseas engagements, comprising 15 matches in total, that Bermuda will participate in as part of qualifying for the 2023 World Cup in India.The initial phase of League B runs from December 2-12, with Bermuda’s first match coming against Hong Kong next Tuesday in the capital city of Muscat.

first_imgJohn Desko’s eyes widened and he nodded in agreement when asked about the threat that Duke midfielders Myles Jones and Deemer Class pose.It’s the latter who tallied 13 points in two games against Syracuse last year, but the former who presents a force unlike any the Orange will face all season.“Myles Jones is probably the most dominant player in college lacrosse right now,” Desko said.At 6 feet, 4 inches and 240 pounds, Jones possesses the stature of an NFL tight end, with speed and a hard shot that both drew praise from SU players. But the midfielder’s expanding skill set is what has the Orange worried most, and defender Brandon Mullins will likely be tasked with slowing down the nation’s best midfielder when No. 1 Syracuse (6-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) faces No. 4 Duke (7-1) at 12:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome on Sunday.In 2014, Jones had 26 assists in 20 games played. Through eight games this year, he already has a team-high 21 assists to complement his 24 goals. And while ranking fifth in the country at almost six points per game, he tops all midfielders in that category.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He’s obviously big and fast and has a really hard shot, but what’s made him more dangerous recently is his ability to feed,” Mullins said. “… That makes him even more dangerous.”Similar to last year, the Orange is likely to throw two long poles on Jones and Class, Mullins said. But unlike a season ago, Jones will bring a different dimension that will force Syracuse to be wary of what Jones is capable of if he is double-teamed.It’s rare that a defender pushes up to guard a midfielder — it’ll likely be a long-stick midfielder guarding Class — but Jones is good enough to draw Mullins, whom the Orange usually uses to defend other teams’ best attacks.The SU defender pointed out how an extra defender often slides quickly to Jones, but this year Jones has shown the presence to feed it off to the next open man instead of taking it himself.“I think freshman, sophomore year he was more of a dodger and shooter,” SU midfielder Henry Schoonmaker said. “He’s become more of a passer now that he’s got people looking at him more.”While Jones has 2 inches and almost 30 pounds on Mullins, the Syracuse senior has already helped limit the likes of Siena’s Richie Hurley, Army’s John Glesener and Johns Hopkins’ Shack Stanwick.Now, the Orange’s top defender will face his toughest test of the season if Desko decides to push him up to defend at the midfield line.“Most teams don’t have a player of that size and that physical that can match up with him,” Syracuse attack Kevin Rice said of Jones. “Brandon’s as physical and big as it comes in the country in terms of defenders.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories The natural: Midfielder Jones provides freak athleticism, lethal threat for Blue Devils as team attempts to seize 3rd straight national championshipcenter_img Published on March 21, 2015 at 3:47 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidmanlast_img read more

first_imgBarcelona have announced they have been cleared by the Liga de Futbol Profesional (LFP) of any wrongdoing in the signing of Neymar.The 22-year-old joined the Spanish champions in the close-season from Santos, with the financial arrangements surrounding his transfer causing controversy.Sandro Rosell resigned as Barcelona president over the affair, although the club denied any wrongdoing after being charged with tax evasion by the Spanish authorities.And in a statement released on Monday, Barca revealed they had been cleared of breaching league rules.”FC Barcelona wish to express their satisfaction at the resolution of the Economic Control Committee of the Lliga Nacional de Futbol Professional (LFP) that there is no existence of any irregular conduct committed by FC Barcelona in the signing of Neymar Jr. The committee met last Wednesday, April 23rd and its decision was published last Friday.”According to the committee: “in view of the appeal made to the LFP by FC Barcelona (…), there is no evidence of any irregular conduct committed by the club which would have infringed the rules and regulations of the LFP. As a result of this, no further action in this matter will be taken”. “The Economic Control Committee of the Lliga Nacional de Futbol Professional (LFP) ordered FC Barcelona to provide a series of documents in February and, having analysed them in full, has reached the decision that there were no irregularities whatsoever by the club in the signing of Neymar Jr. “In a spirit of transparency, FC Barcelona would like to place on record its complete willingness to continue to provide the committee with any further information related to the signing.”last_img read more

first_imgThe Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) is exploring skills training and capacity building in sawmilling to help encourage value added production of forest products.Iwokrama SawmillGFC Commissioner James Singh told the Government Information Agency (GINA) that the Commission was collaborating with the Private Sector in preparing a proposal to seek funding from the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund (GRIF). Focus will be on the establishment of a training school to provide, among other things, practical, marketing and entrepreneurial skills.“The GFC is coordinating a multi-pronged approach to encourage added value to forest products,” Singh said. The Commissioner explained that an enabling environment was being actively pursued.“Ensuring that there is sufficient raw material for manufacturers of added value products is also a critical element,” Singh pointed out.The GFC continues to engage Private Sector bodies and companies to determine the products that the local and overseas markets require which can be supplied by Guyana.To this end, the GFC has created a draft log export policy. “This policy is for feedback from the public and essentially is aimed at restricting log exports, especially logs from those species that are, or potentially, in demand by added value forest produce manufacturers,” the Commissioner explained.The final policy is expected to be completed shortly, he added.Last year, the Natural Resources Ministry placed restrictions on the export of lotus logs following complaints by furniture manufacturers about shortages on the local market.Guyana relies heavily on the export of raw logs. There are sawmills, kiln ovens and one plywood manufacturing factory that add value to forest products.Additionally, the GFC head said the Commission would approach GRIF to fund other initiatives “to add impetus to the movement to add value”. One such initiative is a revolving fund to provide support to stakeholders to retool or invest in the appropriate equipment to facilitate added value. Another initiative being explored is a log consolidation yard.Currently, the GFC facilitates training of stakeholders in key aspects of value added manufacturing. “It’s recognised that despite the current challenges…many local companies are still persevering and producing high-quality added value forest products at competitive prices,” he said.Adding value to products from the sector is challenged by financing, poor access roads, high energy costs, low skills level and shipping constraints among others. However, the 2016 mid-year report projected a rise in production of value-added products in the sector as a result of increased production, combined with a larger market for value-added forestry products.last_img read more

first_imgNEWHALL – Teaching started as a simple part-time job and ended up being her mission in life. Sulma Gurrola was a senior at Loyola Marymount University pursuing a degree to become a doctor when she picked up a teaching gig to help pay for tuition. It was then that she realized that her true calling was in a classroom, not an examination room. “It was then that I knew the difference between a profession and a calling,” she said. Gurrola finished her degree in pre-medicine and biology anyway. But after graduation she returned to school for her teaching credential and a master’s degree in language arts and literature.

She has worked there for five years. Her days start at 7 a.m., when she arrives at the neighborhood school to prepare for her 17 pupils arriving an hour later. Around noon, the 11 kindergartners in her class go home, leaving her with all first-graders until school lets out. The two grades were combined for her class this year to accommodate a large kindergarten class. On Friday, Gurrola helped her kindergartners pack up for the day. The children stuffed art projects into their backpacks and pointed out their many other works hanging on the classroom walls. It was only noon, and it had already been a busy day. It started with a tea party for her students’ mothers that she organized. The night before, she was up late for a banquet where she was recognized as Teacher of the Year for her school, a title awarded to the 33-year-old by a vote of her colleagues. “She goes over and beyond all the time,” said Traci Curtis, Newhall Elementary assistant principal, explaining why teachers put their vote behind her. “She puts her heart and soul into her students.” Curtis oversees the Even Start program at the school where Gurrola teaches two-hour parenting classes to families on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. There are 30 families involved in the program, which promotes literacy as a way to fight poverty. Gurrola, who grew up speaking Spanish at home, helps parents in the group learn English. She also teaches some moms and dads about new ways to rear their children and to guide them into academic activities at home. She recalled a time when one mother returned to thank the program for teaching her new ways to discipline her children. The mother had employed those methods at home and recognized a change in her kids and her relationship with them. “They tell us how we have affected their lives and improved their lives,” she said. “That’s the reason why I do it.” [email protected] (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgThomas Pringle TD has expressed concerns regarding the recent proposal for a rural hackney service, insisting that existing hackney licence holders should be allowed to apply or tender for it to work efficiently.The Donegal TD raised the matter with Minister of State for Transport Alan Kelly.Deputy Pringle said “The recent proposal for a rural hackney service, from the limited media reports I have seen, I understand it is to be introduced by December and will be administered through the rural transport companies and I believe there will be restrictions on the areas in which the hackneys can operate. “However, I have serious concerns because many hackney drivers operate in the rural part of County Donegal where I live. Even though Killybegs has a population of 1,200 or 1,300 about eight or nine hackneys operate there every weekend. I can see the thought behind introducing this system through the rural transport companies, but existing hackney licence holders should be allowed to apply or tender and then it should be administered through the transport companies, but this current proposal would introduce a third layer of taxis.”The Killybegs-based politician said that with taxi-plate holders, the hackneys and now these new rural hackneys, there will be major problems with the policing and regulation of it.“A person getting this new hackney licence might be restricted to operating within a five-mile radius of a small village in County Donegal, however, nothing will prevent him or her from going to operate in the nearest town. We know there will be no regulation because there are a very limited number of enforcement officers nationwide.“For a country of this size there is no way it will be possible to enforce regulation in that industry. Existing hackney licence holders should be able to tender with the rural transport companies and the payments can then be arranged with the rural transport companies. Hackney licence holders in rural areas are struggling and barely making a living as things stand,” stated Pringle.  PRINGLE CALLS FOR FURTHER INCLUSION IN RURAL HACKNEY SERVICE was last modified: July 9th, 2013 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:Deputy Thomas Pringlehackneystaxislast_img read more

first_imgThree student enterprises from Donegal will be representing the county at the 10th Annual Student Enterprise Awards National Final in Dublin’s Croke Park next Wednesday, April 18th.Co-ordinated locally by the Donegal County Enterprise Board, the competition is the largest programme of its kind in the country. 2012 marks the tenth anniversary of the first Student Enterprise Awards National Final and since last September, 16,647 budding entrepreneurs from 387 secondary schools across the country have been researching, setting up and running their own enterprises, with help from their teachers and local Enterprise Boards.The three student enterprises representing Donegal on April 18th are: ‘Go Hálainn Candles’ from Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana in the Junior Category, ‘Heavenly Scent’, also from Scoil Mhuire in Buncrana in the Intermediate Category, with ‘Collar Me Quick!’ from St. Columba’s College in Stranorlar representing the county in the Senior Category. On the morning of April 18th, more than 300 finalists from all over the country, including the Donegal finalists, will descend upon GAA Headquarters to set-up enterprise exhibition displays before taking part in a series of judging interviews. Adjudicators mark the budding entrepreneurs on key business areas such as innovation, market research, sales, production, marketing, finances and planning.Michael Tunney, CEO of the Donegal County Enterprise Board has praised the local student entrepreneurs, saying: “Our local budding entrepreneurs from Donegal have all successfully researched, set up and managed a business over the last year, learning important business and enterprise skills along the way. Their families, communities, schools and teachers can be very proud of what they have achieved as they take on the role of student enterprise ambassadors for the county at this year’s National Final in Croke Park.”The awards ceremony for the Student Enterprise Awards is also held on April 18th and Senior Category winners will enjoy an educational trip to Italy in September, as part of their prize. Last year’s winner, Tara Haughton, now exports her winning products, the ‘Rosso Solini’ designer-looking soles for high heels, to twenty-two countries including Brazil, the US and Kuwait.The Chair of the Enterprise Education Committee with the County and City Enterprise Boards, Loman O’ Byrne, said: “Since the first Student Enterprise Awards National Final in 2002, the goal of the Student Enterprise Programme has been to create a more supportive culture for entrepreneurship in Irish classrooms. An enterprising culture in second level today will lead to a more enterprising culture in Irish workplaces and boardrooms in the future, where innovation and business planning skills are to the fore.” The Student Enterprise Awards programme is run across three categories by the network of County and City Enterprise Boards.  Junior Category is for first year students; Intermediate Category is for second years and Junior Certificate students and the Senior Category is for transition year, fifth year, Leaving Cert, LCVP and LCA students.  The interactive website for the programme,, has resources and video tutorials for teachers, students and parents.  Pictures:Go Halainn Candles: Scoil Mhuire Buncrana: Rachel McGonagle, Caoimhe Murphy, Naomh Kenny, Meg O’Doherty, Emer McLaughlin (top)Collar Me Quick, St Columba’s, Stranorlar : Robert Lane (below)Heavenly Scent, Scoil Mhuire Buncrana: Emma Rose Callaghan (bottom)  DONEGAL STUDENTS SET FOR ENTERPRISE AWARDS FINALS AT CROKE PARK was last modified: April 13th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:DONEGAL STUDENTS SET FOR ENTERPRISE AWARDS FINALS AT CROKE PARKlast_img read more

If neither win, there will be a draw to determine which of the Rd 4B winners (Armagh, Kildare) play which of the provincial champions.Some fans will be disappointed regarding the timing of the fixture, and that the game will only be screened on Sky Sports.In the Electric Ireland All-Ireland MFC quarter-final Donegal  will play Roscommon, Markievicz Park, 3pm on Saturday August 2. Donegal landed their third Ulster title in four years when they defeated Monaghan at Clones yesterday afternoon.They’re hotly tipped to advance past the challenge of either Armagh and Meath and set up a blockbuster of a semi-final with Dublin.That clash is a mouthwatering prospect, but Jim McGuinness will not be drawn on the potential match-up and will focus all his attentions on the quarter-final.The county is in a state of euphoria after winning the Ulster title and with the minors claiming the title also it was an historic day for Donegal.People are starting to believe Donegal could go all the way again this year and repeat their heroics of 2012.

first_imgIsaac Nkwe, founder of the ImfundisoSkills Development Project, with one ofhis jewellery-making students.(Image: AngloGold Ashanti)MEDIA CONTACTS• Soweto Jewellery School+27 12 734 [email protected] ARTICLES• Hair academy empowers women• Prison island to tropical paradise• Obama’s trashy Karoo treasures• Record price for SA diamondTamara O’ReillyOut of the humble beginnings of a jewellery-making project that started on borrowed space at the De Beers Cullinan mines in Gauteng has grown something of a jewellery school empire for Isaac Nkwe.Nkwe is the founder of Imfundiso Skills Development, an initiative that has seen hundreds of students from five such schools around South Africa graduate from jewellery-making courses and go on to successful careers.After graduating from the University of Pretoria, now the Tshwane University of Technology, Nkwe joined Arthur Kaplan Jewellers as a designer. In 2000, he helped establish the Atteridgeville Jewellery School.A year later in partnership with De Beers, the Department of Minerals and Energy and the then-Pretoria Technikon, he founded the Imfundiso project, operating out of the company’s diamond mine in Cullinan, east of Pretoria.“There’s an influx of people from rural areas coming to the mines every year, so the initial idea was to train the children of the mineworkers so that they could have a future,” says Nkwe. “Today we have expanded to schools in Gauteng and Limpopo and KwaZulu-Natal teaching just about anyone who want to learn about jewellery making.”Impressed with the initiative, the National Lottery sponsored the opening of another school in Sekhukhune in Limpopo and in 2004 the Soweto Jewellery School in White City Jabavu opened its doors.Giving value to skillsTwo courses accredited by the Mining Qualification Authority are run annually – a six-month course for graduates from jewellery schools around the country and a two-year learnership for those without any previous experience. The latter course is a fast-track method of training unskilled, unemployed and inexperienced youths to produce jewellery and craft of fine, saleable quality within a short period of time.Working with a combination of precious metals such as gold, silver and bronze, as well as beads, wood and glass has allowed students to blend indigenous jewellery making with more contemporary styles.Apart from being taught the intricacies of jewellery making, students are also armed with business skills so that the trade learned is marketable.“Skills only have value if one can market and use them,” says Nkwe. “It is important that we teach the students here both marketing and communication skills so that they can use them to support themselves and their families.”Many success stories have emerged from this project, the most notable of them being the achievement of one of the students, Nelson Zwane, who created the necklace that Terry Pheto, actress in the South African Oscar-winning movie Tsotsi, wore to the Academy Awards.So far students have done work for government and companies looking for unique promotional merchandise as well as individuals who can make their own designs.“Jewellery is a funny business. Although we are one of the biggest producers of gold and diamonds, around 80% percent of it gets exported and turned into saleable items outside this country. Our goal is to make South Africa a jewellery-making hub because we have all the talent and resources we need right here,” says Nkwe.last_img read more

first_imgThere has been a sharp increase in crimes in trains and railway premises, data has revealed. In the year 2017, 1,058 cases of robbery were reported across the 16 Railway zones of the country, which increased to 1,472 in 2018. Similarly, the number of rape cases reported in 2017 were 55, which increased to 69 in 2018. Drugging casesThe figures were tabled in the Lok Sabha by the Ministry of Railways last week in response to questions by seven MPs. The number of cases of drugging has remained the same, 257 for both 2017 and 2018.A closer analysis of the data points out huge variations in crimes as far as Railway zones are concerned. For instance the Central Railway has recorded the highest incidents of robbery (723) in 2018, followed by Western Railway which recorded 377 cases. North East Frontier Railway, South East Central and South Eastern Railway have recorded the least number of cases of robbery with four, four and nine respectively in 2018. In terms of cases of rape, three railway zones, West Central and Central Railway with 14 cases each and Northern Railway with 11 cases, amount to 56% of all rape cases recorded in all the zonal railways in 2018. Southern and South Central Railway recorded no incident of rape in 2018. In terms of incidents of drugging, Central Railway and North Central Railway recorded 61 cases each, followed by 31 in North Central and 18 in North East Frontier Railway.What is interesting about these figures is that the data has been brought into the public domain for the first time. The National Crime Record Bureau, which has a chapter on Crime in Railways, was last released in 2017 containing statistics recorded in 2016. Retired IPS officer and former Executive Director of the Railway Protection Force Nazrul Islam furthered explained these figures. ‘Proactive officers’“If more cases are recorded in some zonal railways that does not necessarily mean that the zone is more crime prone. It can be that officers there are more proactive in recording cases and thereby victims have higher chance of getting justice,” Mr Islam said.last_img read more

Follow on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. London: Serge Gnabry scored four second-half goals as Bayern Munich embarrassed Tottenham 7-2 in the Champions League on Tuesday — the biggest-ever margin of defeat suffered by an English team at home in any European competition.The Bundesliga champions fell behind to an early Son Heung-min goal but then clicked into gear, producing a ruthless display of finishing in the north London rain as Spurs fell apart. Harry Kane briefly gave the home side hope with a penalty to reduce the deficit to 4-2 but that was merely the prelude to another masterclass in finishing from the five-time European champions.”It was a great evening for Bayern Munich and for German football,” said Bayern boss Niko Kovac. “Playing this way here in England is really unique.””I have compassion for my colleague (Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino),” he added, praising the “amazing” Gnabry and Manuel Neuer for his display in the Bayern goal.Spurs, who reached the Champions League final in June, where they lost to Liverpool, also had a sluggish start to the competition last year, winning a single point from their first three games.But Pochettino faces a huge task now to lift the team after this humbling at their new ground following an unconvincing start to the season.The Spurs boss urged his side to stay together despite the traumatic defeat, saying the timing of Bayern’s second goal just before half-time was a hard blow.”The most important thing is to stay calm, no rushed analysis, no rushed judgement, no rushed assessment,” he said, praising the clinical finishing of Bayern, who had 11 shots on target.”You need to show your quality like a man first,” he added. “To face it like a professional. This type of situation you have to show your quality, how you are strong.”The early exchanges gave no clue about the carnage to come.Tottenham’s deserved early lead was wiped out 194 seconds later by Joshua Kimmich but the home side went toe to toe with Bayern for most of the first period.Bayern forged ahead on the stroke of half-time, though, thanks to a superb finish from Robert Lewandowski, who picked up the loose ball at the edge of the area and swivelled to fire into the bottom corner.GNABRY STRIKESThe second half belonged to former Arsenal man Gnabry, who struck four times as the visitors completed a rout. Lewandowski also scored a second.It was the first time Spurs had conceded seven goals in a home match in any major competition.The result leaves Bayern in pole position in Group B with two wins from two matches while Spurs have just one point after seeing a 2-0 lead wiped out in their opening game against Olympiakos.But despite their poor start they are just two points behind second-placed Red Star Belgrade, who beat Olympiakos 3-1 on Tuesday.Bayern extended their advantage eight minutes after the break as Gnabry broke at pace down the left and burst into the box before drilling into the bottom corner.Spurs’ misery was compounded as Gnabry struck again two minutes later, capitalising after Harry Winks lost possession.Pochettino’s men were handed a lifeline as the referee pointed to the penalty spot for a foul on Danny Rose, with Kane reducing the deficit to 4-2 on the hour mark.But Gnabry sealed his hat-trick for Bayern in the 83rd minute after racing beyond the Spurs defence and slotting past Lloris from 15 yards.There was still time for Lewandowski to side-foot home a sixth for the German giants and Gnabry was able to add his fourth, and a seventh for Bayern, in the 88th minute. last_img read more

first_imgA generic view of a goal line marker.(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)The Alliance of American Football made its debut just over two weeks ago and has been dominating the headlines since. While most of the news has been positive, a new report suggested the AAF had trouble paying its players.According to a report, the AAF failed to pay its players for the first week of competition. The AAF released a statement, calling the non-payment a “glitch” in the system rather than a lack of funds.Regardless, it’s a bad look for the new league as it looks to gain legitimacy as a developmental league for the NFL. Former draft busts and college football stars looking to get back in the good graces of the NFL will have to fight through the new league’s struggles in its inaugural season.One of the biggest names in the AAF is former Alabama star Trent Richardson.The former No. 3 overall pick failed to make it in the NFL and now he’s struggling in the AAF.Richardson is averaging just 2.4 yards per carry this season – though he does have three touchdowns in two games.He’s hardly the only former college star struggling. Former Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg is completing just 50-percent of his passes and hasn’t thrown a touchdown yet this season.It’ll be a tough road back to the NFL for both players.last_img read more

A recently published study followed 448 13-year-old kids from South Australia in 1988 and 1989. By the time that they turned 30 in 2005 and 2006 more than a third of them had received orthodontic treatment. “The study, examined if having braces lead to a greater level of happiness or psychosocial outcomes, later in life. There was a pattern of higher psychosocial scores in people who did not have orthodontic treatment meaning people who hadn’t had braces fitted were happier than the ones that did have braces.” Also Read – An income drop can harm brain”Those who didn’t have braces had varying levels of crooked teeth, just like those who had braces treatment –ranging from mild through to very severe,” researcher said. The study looked at four psychosocial aspects: how well people felt they coped with new or difficult situations and associated setbacks; how much they felt that could take care of their own health; the person believed that the support they received was from their personal network and their own level of optimism. “These indicators were chosen because they are important for psychosocial functioning and are relevant to health behaviours and health outcomes; since the core research question was the impact of braces treatment on patients’ self-confidence,” they added.

first_imgNew Delhi: Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday said the government should have taken chief ministers’ views before changing the terms of reference of the 15th Finance Commission, adding that unilateralism is not good for federal policy and cooperative federalism. Earlier in July, the Centre changed the terms of reference of the 15th Finance Commission and mandated the panel to suggest ways for allocation of non-lapsable funds for defence and internal security. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalSpeaking at an event here, Singh said any change in the panel’s terms of reference at the fag-end of its term should have been done in consultation with the states. “The best course would have been for the Central government that if it wants to tailor the terms of reference, it should be backed by Chief Ministers’ Conference, which is now under the auspices of NITI Aayog, otherwise there would be strong feeling that the (Central) government is trying to rob the states of due resource allotment. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boost”I think that it is not good for the federal polity of our country and cooperative federalism we all swear by these days,” Singh said while addressing the ‘National Seminar on Additional Terms of Reference of the 15th Finance Commission: Implication for the States’. “The commission’s report goes to the finance ministry and then it goes to the Cabinet and therefore government of the day can take a view that whatever the mandate of the Parliament, the government would abide by that rather than imposing its view unilaterally on the reluctant state commissions,” he added. The government on November 27, 2017 notified the 15th Finance Commission, headed by N K Singh, to suggest the formula for devolution of funds to states by the Centre for five years commencing April 1, 2020, among other issues. The commission, which has been mandated to use 2011 census data rather than the one of 1971 for resource allocation, was to submit its report by October 30, 2019. The deadline was later extended till November 30, 2019. “I respectfully request to the authorities to still take this view that they will go by the advice of the Chief Ministers if there is new controversy with regard to additional terms of reference of the commission,” the senior Congress leader said. “I am told once upon a time, the 9th Finance Commission took the view that it will be guided by the Constitutional mandate and will do the fair distribution of taxes, though I don’t know that whether this (15th) commission is going to adopt that line of thought. But…internal security as well as defence are subjects which are of great national importance,” Singh added. About the role of the commission, he said, “There are certain basic issues like allocations for health, education and other important subjects, environment protection, where all states have a legitimate interest. What should be done by the government is to evolve a broad national consensus in dealing with all these issues, otherwise there would be bickering and dissatisfaction. This is not good for the federal polity of our country.” He was of the view that cooperative federalism demands give and take and therefore it is very important that the Centre should take the initiative to consult states as often as necessary to carry them along. “It’s rather odd for the government to come up with additional terms of reference. Most of the states have already gone to the commission with their requirement and now you impose another terms of reference on the commission, which would complicate its work. That is certainly not good for the federal polity and cooperative federalism that we desire should flourish in the country,” he added.last_img read more

Louise Arbour relayed the international community’s concerns about the situation in the South Asian country and explained how her Office could assist in promoting national human rights protection in the South Asian country, the Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesperson told reporters today.The High Commissioner also “underscored the importance of accurate and independent reporting of the human rights situation on the ground,” the spokesperson said.Clashes in Sri Lanka between Government forces and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), or Tamil Tigers have affected 3 million people, including over 500,000 who have fled their homes, according to the UN.

Registrar Hans Holthuis was holding discussions with the Yugoslav authorities to remind them of their obligations to cooperate with the Tribunal, including by transferring Milosevic into the custody of the Tribunal in The Hague, a United Nations spokesman said today. According to the Tribunal’s rules, when an accused person is arrested, the State in question must detain him and promptly notify the Registrar. Rule 57 specifies that the transfer of the accused to the seat of the Tribunal “shall be arranged between the State authorities concerned, the authorities of the host country and the Registrar.”The indictment against Mr. Milosevic charges him and four others with crimes against humanity and violations of the laws or customs of war during a “systematic attack directed against the Kosovo Albanian civilian population of Kosovo in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY).”Among other criminal acts committed under Mr. Milosevic’s leadership, the forces of the FRY and Serbia “forcibly expelled and internally displaced hundreds of thousands of Kosovo Albanians from their homes across the entire province of Kosovo” by using threats and violence to create an atmosphere of fear and oppression, according to the indictment. read more

The agreement, signed by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), will establish a regional collaboration centre in Kampala, Uganda, that will support the identification of projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), provide assistance for their design, and offer opportunities to reduce transaction costs. The Mechanism allows emission-reduction projects in developing countries to earn certified emission reductions – or CERs – which can then be traded, sold and used by industrialized countries to meet environmental targets. Each CER is equivalent to one ton of carbon dioxide.According to UNFCCC, there are more than 6,000 registered projects in 83 developing countries. Uganda is one of the leading nations on the use of the Mechanism, with 12 projects currently registered in the country.This is the second regional collaboration centre established by the UNFCCC and a regional development bank in Africa. The first centre was established a few months ago in Lomé, Togo, in collaboration with the Banque Ouest Africaine de Développement and provides assistance in the development of CDM projects in Francophone Africa.“The two regional collaboration centres in Lomé and Kampala are designed to help Africa increase its attractiveness and potential for CDM. Our goal is to build capacity, reduce the risk for investors in such projects and help make the continent an increasingly attractive destination for CDM projects,” said UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres.The centre in Kampala will open in May, and is expected to provide hands-on support to governments, non-governmental organizations and businesses interested in developing CDM projects in more than 20 countries in the region. read more

first_imgThe Federal government sure has been busy the past few weeks when it comes to curbing piracy on the internet. In its latest move, the Feds have seized several domains that are used to stream illegal broadcasts of sporting events. With the Super Bowl this Sunday, officials are looking to make another statement on piracy by replacing the content on each site with the banner pictured above. So if you were hoping to use your favorite steaming site to catch the game, you may be out of luck.Domains that have been included in the seizure are,, and, with more most likely being added as the week proceeds. It’s interesting to note is that this marks the fist time a .tv domain has been seized in relation to the NFL championship. While seizures of this nature happened last year at the same time, this round of raids may be hitting a sore-spot with internet denizens because of the recent protests of SOPA and the governments response to said protests.Believe it or not, the NFL has several rules in place concerning the viewing of the Super Bowl. These came as a result of non-profit groups such as churches and youth centers showing the game to large groups of people. Non-profits can show the game if they use equipment that they already own to display the action, meaning that they can’t rent TV’s or projectors for the event. Also, they can’t charge any kind of fee to people who come to watch.Besides rebroadcasting violations, most streaming sports site have ads that display which they make money off of. While this doesn’t look like a direct violation since clicking on those ads is voluntary, someone is still getting paid for rebroadcasting something they don’t own.The good news is that there will be some legal ways to watch the Super Bowl online, ensuring that you won’t miss any of the action.via Torrent Freaklast_img read more

first_imgAstéroïde Apophis : une collision avec la Terre possible en 2036Si une collision entre l’astéroïde Apophis et la Terre est fort peu probable, des chercheurs russes ont calculé la date à laquelle cet événement pourrait se produire. Selon leurs estimations, c’est en 2036, en avril, que la collision pourrait avoir lieu.Découvert en 2004, cet astéroïde suit une orbite proche de celle de la Terre et la croise à deux reprises lors de ses révolutions. Le vendredi 13 avril 2029, Apophis s’approchera de la Terre à une distance de 37.000 ou 38.000 kilomètres, et selon Leonid Sokolov, professeur à la faculté de mécanique céleste de l’université de Saint-Pétersbourg, cité par l’agence RIA Novosti, il pourrait “entrer en collision avec la Terre le 13 avril 2036”.À lire aussiLune, cigarette électronique et intelligence artificielle, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 3 SeptembreToutefois nombre d’astronomes, et notamment les chercheurs de l’Institut d’astronomie appliquée de l’Académie des sciences de Russie, estiment extrêmement peu probable cette collision.Pendant plusieurs mois, suite à la découverte d’Apophis, astéroïde d’un diamètre de 270 mètres d’une masse d’environ 27 millions de tonnes, les chercheurs craignaient de le voir entrer en collision avec la Terre ou la Lune en 2029.

Now, cousins Luke & Butch will knock down the doors of the WWE Hall of Fame with their patented Battering Ram, as the Kiwis join the Hall’s Class of 2015.The Bushwhackers’ journey to immortality began 50 years ago in their homeland of New Zealand, where the two joined forces in regional companies, catching the eyes of North American promoters. Luke & Butch made their first splash in Stampede Wrestling, the Calgary-based territory ran by WWE Hall of Famer Stu Hart, before moving south into the United States.Though Butch briefly left America in the early 1980s, he soon returned to join forces with Luke once again. Then known as The Sheepherders, the New Zealanders quickly earned a reputation as one of the most vicious tag teams in all of professional wrestling, leaving crimson-covered opponents in their wake from the Pacific Northwest to Puerto Rico and everywhere in between. Their brawls with teams like The Fabulous Ones and The Fantastics are still remembered as some of the most brutal ever.In 1986, The Sheepherders settled down in Bill Watts’ Universal Wrestling Federation, almost immediately defeating “Dr. Death” Steve Williams & Ted DiBiase for the UWF Tag Team Titles. When they weren’t wrestling for Watts, Luke & Butch were traveling around the country, engaging in wild brawls in stalwart NWA territories like Florida and Jim Crockett Promotions, the precursor to WCW.After Crockett absorbed the UWF in 1987, The Sheepherders jumped ship. With future WWE executive John Laurinaitis carrying the New Zealand flag for them, Luke & Butch stomped into the NWA, rekindling their rivalry with The Fantastics. However, just as it looked as they were on the verge of capturing championships, the Kiwis signed with WWE. Fans expecting The Sheepherders to bring their brand of brawling to WWE were in for a huge surprise when Luke & Butch made their debut in late 1988.Instead of the vicious Sheepherders, the WWE Universe was introduced to The Bushwhackers, a pair of fun-loving cousins clad in mangled baseball caps and camouflage. Luke & Butch stomped to the ring in manic fashion, swinging their arms in a manner that fans couldn’t help but imitate. The New Zealanders also interacted with the WWE Universe in another unique fashion: licking their heads. The toothless cousins quickly made their mark on The Grandest Stage of Them All, defeating Jimmy Hart’s Fabulous Rougeau Brothers at WrestleMania V.The unorthodox Bushwhackers soon engaged in a heated rivalry with another Hart-managed duo, Rhythm & Blues. Luke & Butch saved the WWE Universe from listening to The Honky Tonk Man & Greg “The Hammer” Valentine’s off-tune caterwauling at WrestleMania VI, masquerading as roadies and smashing their instruments in front of a packed SkyDome in Toronto. In 1991, Luke made a stunningly brief appearance in the Royal Rumble Match, where he marched into the ring, was immediately tossed out, then marched back to the locker room.Though they never captured the World Tag Team Championship, The Bushwhackers were always on the front line of WWE, ready to stand up in the face of evil. Luke & Butch battled duos like The Natural Disasters, The Beverly Brothers and Well Dunn, forming an alliance with WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel to take on the latter team and their manager, Harvey Wippleman. The Bushwhacker eventually marched out of WWE in 1996. They were welcomed back with open arms by the WWE Universe at WrestleMania X-Seven in 2001, where they took part in the hysterical Gimmick Battle Royal.Fourteen years later, Luke & Butch will take their place in history and become WWE Hall of Famers.Tickets for the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony are on sale now at, the SAP Center box office, and by calling 800-745-3000.Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipSeth Rollins Defends WWE On Two Separate OccasionsVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:30/Current Time 0:05Loaded: 100.00%0:05Remaining Time -0:25 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

first_imgThis area gets busy during the height of sockeye season, but you can still find all fish species native to the Kenai River, according to Refuge officials. This area is unique because it is one of a very few places where anglers can fish for sockeye without having to be in the water. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge has announced the opening of the Upper Moose Range Meadows fishing boardwalk for fishing starting yesterday, July 18. The Refuge is advising anglers to “Please be careful as the high water is a bit hazardous.” The Upper Moose Range Meadows is located down Redoubt Ave. (and behind the Fred Meyer) in Soldotna. The boardwalk sits roughly 5 to 10 feet  above the water so anglers will need to use a heavier weight to ensure their fly reaches the right depth quickly enough, and will not be able to use a very long leader.last_img read more

first_imgJalpaiguri (WB): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today stressed on a permanent solution for the problems plaguing the tea gardens in north Bengal and formed an expert committee to find out a solution. She said that the committee, under Chief Secretary Malay De, would submit its report after going through the problems at the tea gardens, thus help in finding out a solution. “I want a permanent solution for the tea gardens. Nobody has ever thought of any permanent solution regarding the problems, raging at the tea gardens, for ages. Even the Centre has failed to keep up to its promise, made prior to the last Assembly elections, about opening the closed tea gardens,” Banerjee told reporters here at the Uttarkanya. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killed Today, she held a meeting with representatives of the tea gardens. She also held a meeting senior ministers such as state Labour Minister Moloy Ghatak, Arup Biswas and senior officials of her government. The state government also proposed a daily wage of Rs 176 for the tea garden workers pending finalisation of the minimum wages. This year the state government had announced two interim hikes of Rs 17.50 and of Rs nine, taking the daily wage to Rs 159. Meanwhile, the largest tea producing state of Assam, last week, had announced issuing a possible notification on an interim hike of Rs 30, with retrospective effect from March 1 this year, which would take the current daily wage of tea garden workers from Rs 137 to Rs 167. Banerjee also lambasted the culture of strike at the tea gardens and said it finished the work culture there.last_img read more

first_imgRelated posts:What keeps Johnny Araya awake at night? Following rival’s campaign exit, candidate Solís says voter abstention could delegitimate his presidency Solís seeks 1 million votes in runoff election to strengthen his mandate Video: Opposition candidate Luis Guillermo Solís casts his ballot, encourages Ticos to vote Easily surpassing his goal of 1 million votes Sunday night, Costa Rican President-elect Luis Guillermo Solís has claimed a mandate to govern, but the realities of running a government still loom, analysts said on Monday.The 55-year-old university professor who started the presidential race as a political unknown surged to a surprising first-place finish with his Citizen Action Party on Feb. 2 and claimed a record-breaking 1.3 million votes – 77.8 percent support – in Sunday’s runoff amid fears that high absenteeism would undercut his political capital. The victory interrupted over 40 years of two-party rule in Costa Rica.“He has credibility as the anti-politician because he never ran for elected office,” said Michael Shifter, president of the Inter-American Dialogue, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank.“The message is that even though the country wants a change from politics as usual it’s not prepared to go a more radical route,” Shifter said. “Solís’ victory is further evidence that there is a malaise with traditional politics. He’s an example that the people are looking for alternatives, and being someone without elected political experience can be an asset and an advantage.”Recommended: Non-career politician Luis Guillermo Solís wins Costa Rica presidential runoff in a landslideAt his first press conference as president-elect Monday morning, Solís promised swift action against corruption after he takes office on May 8, including an overhaul of the country’s troubled private concessions for public infrastructure projects.Eric Olson, associate director of the Woodrow Wilson Centers’ Latin American Program, told The Tico Times Solís had reached the threshold to claim a mandate, despite the 43 percent voter abstention rate.“Forty-three percent is not unusually high, and since he set a goal of a million votes and got more than that, I think he can claim a mandate, especially since the most important political party historically essentially bowed out of the second round,” Olson said.But the mandate is not enough to wrangle the fractious incoming Legislative Assembly, one where the ruling National Liberation Party holds a majority in the 57-seat legislature.“PAC has a relatively small presence. They’re going to have to work together to see what are the priority issues and how they can build coalitions to make progress on these issues,” Shifter said.The think tank president said Solís would have to rein in the various fractions of PAC lawmakers as well as reach across the aisle to other parties.“Solís has been able to demonstrate political skills by winning his party’s nomination, which was not easy, and by running an effective campaign and winning the support of a broad spectrum of Costa Rican society. Now he’s got to face an even harder task of getting through his agenda,” he added.“The challenges and expectations that have been set are enormous,” Olson said.Solís and the PAC might have their own challenges in the coming years, but the task is greater still for the National Liberation Party, stinging from its worst defeat in the party’s history.“Liberation has a high mountain to climb to re-establish itself as the predominant political force in Costa Rica,” Olson said, adding that the party needed to revamp its leadership, develop new ideas and show that it is in touch with Costa Rican voters.Olson said that while other parties in similar circumstances might crumble, PLN would likely hold on. He noted that PLN already survived a schism that created the soon-to-be ruling PAC in 2000. The party is still in a position to leverage its majority in the Legislative Assembly, 18 seats, to rebuild its public image before the next election in 2018.The Woodrow Wilson scholar concluded that Solís’ election was a surprise that demonstrated the strength of Costa Rica’s democratic tradition. “A relative outsider from a party without much history was strong and capable of winning the campaign and so many votes,” Olson said, “That’s a positive thing.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

we could not go to a restaurant and buy a sandwich I guarantee you that life is better now that we can do all of those things but as far as the black-white issue is concerned particularly the important part education where you can live and what you have to pay to live the only way to change that is to provide an education route so you can move up in the capitalist structure And thats become less and less not more and more Im 84 and it gets hard for me to contain myself As told to Olivia B Waxman Correction: The original version of this story included a photograph of a person other than Linda Brown It has been updated Contact us at [email protected] DIEGO—Prominent climate researchers gathered here today at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (which publishes ScienceNOW) to discuss a barrage of recent attacks on climate science and on climate researchers themselves Science reporter Eli Kintisch sat down with panelist and Texas A&M climate scientist Gerald North to discuss the current atmosphere Listen to their conversation here (mp3) again Berg Xinhua reported the MIAL Doctor attended to him and provided necessary first-aid and kept him for some time in the airport for stabilisation before shifting him to Nanavati Hospital in a GVK Ambulance etc But the highlight of the film is Keira Knightley doing her best Meg Ryan impression to reproduce the infamous fake orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally “the Agency is sure about efforts by the Government "SenBy Joseph Nasr BERLIN (Reuters) – German police on Wednesday detained a Russian man suspected of planning a bomb attack in Germany after turning to radical Islam "It’s a longer league now after Akane Yamaguchi ‘Rajaji Bhawan Senate Tax Committee Chairman Rod SkoeS” according to a statement issued by the two organizations and by The Science Coalition Section 52 of the Electoral Act as amended” now states: “Voting at an election under this Act shall be in accordance with the procedure determined by the Independent National Electoral Commission AugAt the sentencing "Palmiscno said the same of Park District cleanup using equipment from the city Hashmi’s son Ali took to Twitter to express his angeralso hosting the summit in Delhi died onboard the USS Arizona that dayS Under Heynckes’ successor Pep Guardiola "The team is already focused on Wednesday an experienced pilot82 A British woman who fell overboard from a cruise ship says she spent ten hours treading water before rescuers pulled her from the Adriatic Sea Sunday morning Write to Ciara Nugent at ciara 2014 And others less so: Why don’t they just combine the friggin Starbucks & TSA lines at the airport evolution Blaise Matuidi (Juventus/ITA) A defeatInformation reaching our newsdesk and we have come to that very point where we must tell the present leadership of INEC that it has painfully reversed the huge electoral gains recorded under the immediate past Prof It’s not unusual by the way her visible recoil from the kiss indicates that he may have been better off with a handshake with the number of Rohingya fleeing Burma (officially known as Myanmar) escalating after Buddhist-Muslim tensions in Rakhine (or Arakan) state exploded in 2012 her three small children and her brother-in-law were imprisoned in a camp of the Thai side of the border for 26 days in December before her husbandcom If there’s a TV show you’ve binged as a couple or a video game the two of you have spent hours playing togetherDuring the raucous 2016 presidential campaign that pitted Clinton against Trump family members about what may have precipitated this event while Android app users can tap an arrow to access the dozens of other choices eat and drink “Month after month let me make it clear that is not for them to share and chop The Associated Press reported in June 2017 that Pruitt announced his agency’s reversal on chlorpyrifos just 20 days after his official schedule showed a meeting with Dow CEO Andrew Liveris.

Gianforte who is running for Montana’s only congressional seat in a special election set for Thursday at his campaign headquarters just south of Bozeman Mont Early on Thursday the Gallatin County Sheriff’s department announced that it had charged Gianforte with misdemeanor assault The maximum penalty if convicted is a $500 fine and six months in jail Gianforte is due to appear before June 7 BuzzFeed News reporter Alexis Levinson retweeted Jacobs’ allegation and said that she was present at the altercation “Ben walked into a room where a local TV crew was set up for an interview with Gianforte All of a sudden I heard a giant crash and saw Ben’s feet fly in the air as he hit the floor” she said in a series of tweets So I was there for this – still am https://tco/tgjOCYErFi Alexis Levinson (@alexis_levinson) May 24 2017 A spokesperson from the Hyalite Fire Department confirmed to TIME that it was “dispatched to an assault call” at the location but would not confirm any names of those involved The Guardian subsequently posted an audio file of the altercation where a crash can be heard just before Gianforte starts yelling “I’m sick and tired of you guys the last time you came here you did the same thing” Gianforte shouts after Jacobs asked him about the House GOP’s bill to repeal and replace Obamacare “Get the hell out of here get the hell out of here The last guy did the

aggressive behavior from a liberal journalist created this scene at our campaign volunteer BBQ” The audio released by the Guardian captured from the incident does not indicate that Gianforte ever asked Jacobs to lower the recorder Fox News reporter Alicia Acuna said she was also present at the scene along with producer Faith Mangan and photographer Keith Railey Acuna said that after Jacobs “persisted with his question” Gianforte “grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him Faith Keith and I watched in disbelief as Gianforte then began punching the man as he moved on top the reporter and began yelling something to the effect of ‘Im sick and tired of this’” Acuna’s description of the incident also contradicts the statement from Gianforte’s campaign “To be clear at no point did any of us who witnessed this assault see Jacobs show any form of physical aggression toward Gianforte who left the area after giving statements to local sheriffs deputies” she said Brian Gootkin Galatin County Sheriff confirmed at a press conference late Wednesday that an incident with “allegations that an assault occurred” took place at Gianforte’s campaign headquarters at around 5 pm local time Gootkin said that Gianforte was “briefly” interviewed after sheriff’s deputies responded to a call regarding the incident while Jacobs was interviewed after he

APUSH curriculum which is being proposed by the College Board had drawn a negative reaction from studentsThe Texas Board of Education had rejected APUSH in favor of its own state-mandated history

1000 students in all have walked out of class for protests since MondaySuperintendent Don McMinimee said in a statement he met with some of the students and stressed the proposed curriculum changes

blink on one of which bore the letters ATM indicating toxic atmospherein this case toxified by leaking ammonia coolant or so the on-board sensors indicated So Virts turned to a much more precise sensorhis noseand he knew the stakes were high “As they would tell us in training” he said in a recent conversation with TIME “if you smell ammonia don’t worry for long because you’re going to die” As it happened Virts didn’t smell ammonia but he and the other two astronauts in the American segment of the station nonetheless high-tailed it over to the Russian segment where they use a different

against the Taliban in Afghanistan appears to be getting worse Get used to it While the enemies may have different names they are both fueled by an Islamist fervor that suggests a long-term struggle not unlike the Thirty Years War that ravaged Europe in the 17th Century That bodes poorly for wrapping up this conflictthink of both wars as flip sides of the same coinany time soon absent a major and prolonged foreign intervention that seems unlikely Iraqi forces continued to claw their way back into Ramadi the capital of Anbar province that has been in ISIS hands since May "The fall of Ramadi is inevitable" Army Colonel Steve Warren told reporters Tuesday from Baghdad "The end is coming" While ISIS seeks to export its terror the Taliban has confined its fighting to its homealthough that home did become a haven for the al Qaeda terrorists who launched the 9/11 attacks It is becoming increasingly clear that President Obamas desire to bring US troops home from the post-9/11 Middle East wars

Taliban’s advances in some parts of the country even if only temporary underscore that this is a tough fight and it’s far from over" Even if only temporary When the defense chief deploys caveats like that troops under his command take notice Shortly before Carter arrived in Afghanistan the Pentagon issued a congressionally-mandated biannual report warning that security in Afghanistan has "deteriorated" in the second half of 2015 The worsening situation has slowed Obamas pullout of US troops The 9800 currently there will shrink to 5500 by January 2017 when Obama leaves the Oval Office

1991 nations have tried to steer clear at least overtly of conventional war with the US Thats because conventional wars best suit the US way of war When the enemy is another state combat can lead to compromise that can end the fighting Both sides generally try to adhere to the Geneva Conventions which set down rules of war for civilized states Even when the war in Vietnam was morphing into a guerrilla conflict led by the Viet Cong the fight was rooted in Vietnamese nationalism which helped guide the fight down paths Washington knew But todays fight against a virulent form of Islamwhere

omitted her name when they started paying the 30 per cent insurance to the families of the deceased and injured Oluwatoyin stated that she called the airline spokesman Alex Emode who advised her to get a lawyer because she granted an interview to the Accident Investigation Bureau upon her return “I told AIB nothing but the truth about the crash” she said adding that “In fairness to the crew and passengers that died I don’t need to hide anything from AIB “My personal effect recovered from the wreckage has not been given back to me and it has been returned to Associated Airline by AIB” She disclosed that her lawyer wrote a letter to the company on her plight adding that the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority NCAA was copied “To my surprise Mr Alex Emode told my lawyer on phone that I’m

were not happening to me before the crash I was very active I walked straight I do not limp neither were I afraid of flight “The incident happened over nine months ago and the company has not done

Feeding America reportsThe rate of food insecurity is higher for children 216 percent or more than one in fiveFood insecurity is a lack of access at times to enough food for a healthy lifestyle for everyone in a household Feeding America saysOther states doing much better than the national average in dealing with food insecurity are New Hampshire (109 percent) Massachusetts (119 percent) Virginia (121 percent) and South Dakota (123 percent)The worst levels of food insecurity were in Mississippi (223 percent) Arkansas (194 percent) Georgia (189 percent) and Alabama New Mexico and North Carolina (186 percent) Feeding America reportedThe effects of the Great Recession are still lingering The number of people living in food insecurity rose 35 percent in the first year of the recession (2007 to 2008) and hasn’t abated Feeding America reportedMeanwhile cutbacks in the federal food stamp program mean less money for food and more trips to food banks for many families local officials saidIn 2013 the Great Plains Food Bank in Fargo distributed enough food for 107 million meals up 15 percent from 2012 said Marcia Paulson director of marketing and development“North Dakota is doing some things right clearly” Paulson said Thursday “Our (food insecurity) numbers are much better than others But our numbers (of people being served) have gone up since our last report That says something too”She said Great Plains is reaching out to rural areas with mobile food banks and getting fresh produce to reservation communitiesSeniors are a fast-growing clientele particularly in the west where prices for food services housing and utilities have risen far faster than fixed incomes can handle with the boom in the Oil Patch Paulson saidMany families also still don’t accept help from the federal free and reduced-price lunch program for their children she said “In the eyes of great prosperity we certainly have growing disparity” Paulson said “The lines (at food pantries) are longer They’re serving more people And they’re serving more people more often We’re kind of holding our own but not going in the right direction” Paulson saidIn 2012 the food insecurity rate for North Dakota’s Cass County was 77 percent or 54140 people For children it’s higher: 106 percent or 16350 childrenIn Minnesota’s Clay County 10 percent or 5870 people saw food insecurity For children the

saidUnduplicated numbers show that 16871 individuals representing 4944 homes in Cass and Clay counties got help in 2013 he said That added up to 13 million pounds of foodSince 2012 the pantry has put perishable fruits vegetables and bread in its lobby along with cans nearing the end of their shelf lives for people who need extra help to make ends meetFrom December to March the number of individuals accessing the lobby food has risen from 979 to 2167 Diehl saidMuch of the lobby increase is tied to cutbacks in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps) he said“It used to be the last weekend of the month (that pantry workers saw people using the lobby) Now they see them at the third weekend of the month So their food stamps don’t stretch as far” Diehl saidThis past winter stressed budgets too Diehl said“We all need food to live and survive At the same time it’s one of the costs that is flexible as you will” he said “They (clients) have to pay their rent utility bills and they have to put gas in their cars You don’t want to get tossed out on the street so they skimp on food”The YWCA Cass Clay food pantry in Fargo gave out 6419 food boxes to individuals in 2013 about the same as 2012 said agency spokeswoman Katie McCormick“We work with members of the community who are often a paycheck away from becoming homeless” she said “A lot of times they’ll come from situations where they’ve just lost a job”Paulson and Diehl say North Dakota’s reputation as a “land of milk and honey” for work has also attracted many people who arrive unprepared No jobs No

about near-record unemploymentwith long-term unemployment worse than at any time since the 1930s What about the fact that the US employment gains of the past few monthsalthough welcomehaveso farbrought back fewer than 500000 of the more than eight million jobs lost in the wake of the financial crisis Heyworrying about the unemployed is just so 2009 But the truth is that policy makers arent doing too much; theyre doing too little Recent data dont suggest that America is heading for a Greece-style collapse of investor confidence Insteadthey suggest that we may be heading for a Japan-style lost decadetrapped in a prolonged era of high unemployment and slow growth Lets talk first about those interest rates On several occasions over the past yearweve been toldafter some modest rise in ratesthat the bond vigilantes had arrivedthat America had better slash its deficit right away or else Each timerates soon slid back down Most recentlyin Marchthere was much ado about the interest rate on US 10-year bondswhich had risen from 36 per cent to almost 4 per cent Debt fears send rates up was the headline at The Wall Street Journalalthough there wasnt actually any evidence that debt fears were responsible Since thenhoweverrates have retraced that rise and then some As of Thursdaythe 10-year rate was below 33 per cent I wish I could say that falling interest rates reflect a surge of optimism about US federal finances What they actually reflecthoweveris a surge of pessimism about the prospects for economic recoverypessimism that has sent investors fleeing out of anything that looks risky hencethe plunge in the stock market into the perceived safety of US government debt Whats behind this new pessimism It partly reflects the troubles in Europe But there are also warning signs in the USmost recently Wednesdays report on consumer priceswhich showed a key measure of inflation falling below one percentbringing it to a 44-year low This isnt really surprising: you expect inflation to fall in the face of mass unemployment and excess capacity But it is nonetheless really bad news Low inflationor worse yet deflationtends to perpetuate an economic slumpbecause it encourages people to hoard cash rather than spendwhich keeps the economy depressedwhich leads to more deflation That vicious circle isnt hypothetical: just ask the Japanesewho entered a deflationary trap in the 1990s anddespite occasional episodes of growthstill cant get out And it could happen in the US So what we should really be asking right now isnt whether the US is about to turn into Greece We shouldinsteadbe asking what the US is doing to avoid turning Japanese And the answer isnothing Its not that nobody understands the risk I strongly suspect that some officials at the Fed see the Japan parallels all too clearly and wish they could do more to support the economy But in practice its all they can do to contain the tightening impulses of their colleagueswho (like central bankers in the 1930s) remain desperately afraid of inflation despite the absence of any evidence of rising prices I also suspect that Obama administration economists would very much like to see another stimulus plan But they know that such a plan would have no chance of getting through a Congress that has been spooked by the deficit hawks In shortfear of imaginary threats has prevented

the army action The 93-year-old president stepped down on Tuesday in the middle of impeachment proceedings from his own ZANU-PF party after a week of pressure from the military and large crowds which
