first_imgAnne Peretz, founder of Parenting Journey (formerly The Family Center, Inc.), and Chris Byner, interim executive director of Boston Centers for Youth and Families (BCYF), will be honored at this year’s Summer Urban Program Auction, an annual fundraiser held by Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA). The auction, which will take place at Harvard University’s Knafel Center on April 15, raises money for PBHA’s award-winning summer camps for low-income families, while celebrating community members whose work enriches the lives of youth and families in Boston and Cambridge.Peretz is the founder of The Family Center, Inc., a family therapy clinic and family support program geared to low income and immigrant families. The Family Center (now known as The Parenting Journey) has also developed powerful curriculum for new parents, as well as training social workers and teachers in how to support families more effectively. There are currently over 500 Parenting Journey sites in several cities and Peretz has recently developed a comparable program in Burundi.Byner oversees BCYF’s network of 35 community centers, located in nearly every neighborhood in Boston. Byner is a former manager of the Streetworkers Program, a national model for effective youth violence prevention and intervention services. The success of the Boston Streetworkers Program has caused community and police groups to seek Byner’s help in setting up similar programs in other cities across the country.

first_imgIn the opening sequence of “Love Story,” a voiceover declares that the film is about a young woman named Jenny Cavalleri who dies at 25. That young woman, played by Ali MacGraw, loved “Mozart, Bach, the Beatles … and me.” The “me” is Oliver Barrett IV, played by Ryan O’Neal.Depending on whom you ask, the movie is either corny or enduring. But when “Love Story” was released in 1970 it became a zeitgeist hit, a modern “Romeo and Juliet” that lifted its young leads to stardom.And it all started at Harvard — the movie, written by Erich Segal ’58, A.M. ’59, Ph.D., ’65, was one of the last granted permission to film throughout campus, in spots as iconic as Harvard Stadium and alongside University students.In the 45 years since its release, “Love Story” has remained a touchstone for people who came of age in the ’60s and ’70s, as well as incoming Harvard freshmen, for whom a pre-semester screening has become a rite of passage.Some of those freshmen turned out at Kirkland House on Monday for an Office for the Arts-sponsored discussion with MacGraw and O’Neal, who pulled up in a vintage MG convertible like the one Oliver commandeers in the film. Draped in a crimson and ivory scarf, O’Neal could have been Oliver returned to campus for his 50th reunion and, if not for her character’s premature demise, MacGraw might still have been Jenny — the Radcliffe musician from a working-class family who upends Oliver’s world. Hand in hand, they strode across the street looking the same, but older.Of course the cameras were there to receive them, and when a passing student asked what was happening, he looked confused when the cameraman prattled off the actors’ names.“Google it!” the cameraman said with a laugh.Inside Kirkland House, the Harvard Arts Blog’s editor-in-chief, Alicia Anstead, led a discussion with the stars that ranged from their early impressions of Harvard to working together again after all these years. MacGraw and O’Neal are currently mid-tour for A.R. Gurney’s “Love Letters,” which runs through Saturday at Boston’s Citi Performing Arts Theater.O’Neal called Harvard “a character in our story,” and MacGraw noted that it still looked the same.The actors, now in their 70s, have weathered divorces and deaths and everything in between. MacGraw married producer Robert Evans and then her co-star Steve McQueen; bad boy O’Neal finally settled into a decades-long romance with Farrah Fawcett, who died from cancer in 2009.“I had done one film — zero experience — and this was my second film. It was this joyful experience,” recalled MacGraw. “I might tell you in the ensuing decade it was rarely duplicated in terms of fun or optimism.”She was paid just $20,000. “Not enough to pay my alimony,” quipped O’Neal.The success that followed the low-budget film, including Academy Award nominations, surprised them both. “We were just hardworking people who got lucky and became actors,” said O’Neal. “You have to keep your feet on the ground because it’s easy to lift off and behave badly. And I know.”On set, the two clicked immediately, said MacGraw. When pressed by Anstead to explain why, she answered: “There’s a chemistry and a caring, and we’re both Aries —”“She’s a good kisser,” O’Neal interjected. “Wow!”The longstanding mutual affection prompted one brave audience member to wonder aloud whether there was more to their story. Though they were both married at the time, “We had tremendous crushes on each other,” revealed MacGraw.As for Jenny’s famous line — “Love means never having to say you’re sorry” — MacGraw said, “I never questioned that — except for the next 45 years.”last_img read more

first_imgUniversity President Fr. John Jenkins wrote a letter Friday to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urging the State Department to expedite the process for international students to obtain student visas. In the letter, Jenkins noted he and University personnel had determined it would be safe to reopen campus to students in the fall. However, he said Notre Dame international students are facing more difficulties in regard to the global pandemic as many visa appointments are not scheduled until October or November, months after Notre Dame’s fall semester start date in August. “Approximately 400 international first-year students and graduate students who Notre Dame expected to enroll have been seriously delayed. Some academic departments will lose more than half of their incoming cohort of graduate students if visa appointments are not scheduled in the next few months,” Jenkins said. One of the nation’s leading universities for Fulbright Scholars, Jenkins said Notre Dame would have no scholars in the Fulbright program on campus in the fall if this issue is not resolved.“I ask that you help us in continuing the storied success of public diplomacy that the Fulbright program has come to represent,” he said.

Nowhere is that reflection brighter than at $6 billion asset CEFCU in Peoria, Ill., which lives by the words, “Not a Bank. Better.”The credit union distributed a record $50 million “Extraordinary Dividend” to members Nov. 30. The amount each member received was determined by dividends earned and interest paid during the first 11 months of the year.Among credit unions offering patronage dividends, the median amount is $316,000, according to June 2018 data reported by CUNA’s Member Benefits report. At that time, these payouts ranged from $1,200 to $40 million.Over the last 19 years, CEFCU has returned $280 million to members through Extraordinary Dividends.last_img read more

first_imgThis house at 21 Sinclair Drive, Ellen Grove, is on the market priced at $210,000-plus.Mr Lawless said the tighter credit environment was having an impact, as were affordability issues, reduced foreign investment and a rise in housing supply.Five of the eight capital cities recorded a fall in dwelling values over the month, including Brisbane (-0.2 per cent), Sydney (-0.3 per cent) and Melbourne (-0.6 per cent), though Brisbane was still in positive territory for the quarter (0.1 per cent) and annually (0.9 per cent) while the other two biggest capitals went backwards.

CoreLogic expects the more affordable end of the market to see strong growth.AFFORDABLE properties are set to spark a rise in demand in Brisbane with both lenders and buyers expected to turn more of their attention here, latest research has found. Nationally, the most inexpensive quarter of the market was the only segment to rise across the country over the past 12 months, according to industry research firm CoreLogic.CoreLogic research head Tim Lawless said the most inexpensive quarter of the market saw values rise 0.6 per cent in the past year, while the upper quarter logged a 5.4 per cent fall and the middle segments fell 0.5 per cent over the year. “In the higher value cities like Sydney and Melbourne, we’re seeing typical dwelling prices remain more than eight times higher than median household incomes, suggesting tighter credit conditions for borrowers with a high debt-to-income ratio will likely impact on demand more in these cities over others.”The comments come as the latest CoreLogic Hedonic Home Value Index saw national dwelling values fall for the eleventh consecutive month, dropping 0.3 per cent as the housing market continues its correction.

first_imgLauritzen Kosan, part of Danish shipping company J. Lauritzen, has reflagged two of its ships to Denmark for the first time since 2003.The ships in question are the 8,053 cbm Helena Kosan and the 3,666 cbm Linda Kosan.As informed, the registers of the two vessels have been changed to the Danish International Register of Shipping (DIS) as they begin a period time charter which will require an EU flag.“The reflagging of these two gas carriers to Denmark is driven by commercial arguments, and it goes to show that the Danish flag is now very close to being as competitive as Malta, Singapore and the Isle of Man. There are still some challenges, but we very much appreciate the clear pro-business signals currently being sent by the Danish political system,” Mads P. Zacho, CEO of J. Lauritzen, commented.“We very much appreciate the efforts made by the Maritime Strategy Team initiated by the Danish government, which gave its recommendations in April 2017. The subsequent proposals put forward by a broad coalition in parliament with new and significant measures to increase the competitiveness of the Danish flag have clearly had an impact, shown by the reflagging of our two gas carriers to DIS,” Zacho added.Currently, Lauritzen Kosan’s fleet is comprised of 31 gas carriers.last_img read more

first_img“It really worries me how narrow the definition of normal is becoming. We used to accept a wide range of behaviour from two-year-olds and talked about the terrible-twos. “Now a lack of concentration is a conduct disorder. Parents are scared their children are not going to function at school so they accept these labels.”The percentage of children with diagnosed mental health conditions jumped from 1.8% to 3.2% since 2007-08. Increasing numbers of children with anxiety, such as phobias, drove the increase, according to the Ministry of Health report.More than 15,500 children are diagnosed with anxiety, up from 2800 children five years ago.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/number-anxious-kids-skyrockets-5312650 ONE News 6 Jan 2013The rate of children diagnosed by a doctor with mental health conditions has almost doubled over the past five years.A suicide prevention advocate has slammed the results as bad science and says the definition of a “normal child” has narrowed too far.However, child psychology experts say the increasing rate could be a symptom of a more anxiety-driven society and improvements in the diagnosis of youngsters.About 25,000 children have been diagnosed with behavioural and emotional problems, with anxiety the fastest growing condition, according to the Ministry of Health’s latest children’s health report.Anxiety, ADHD and depression are the three most common disorders in children, and boys are twice as likely to be diagnosed with mental health problems.Casper chief executive Maria Bradshaw said she was horrified to hear of babies now being diagnosed as depressed.She founded suicide prevention group Casper after her teenage son took his life just two weeks after being prescribed prozac for depression.last_img read more

first_img3News 2 September 2015Last week Story investigated a Putaruru charity making loads of money from dairy farming. But it’s not the only big money-making enterprise that says it’s a charity so doesn’t pay tax.There are two sides to the story – the big guys you probably don’t even know are a charity, then the little guys being told they’re not charitable enough.Community Housing Aotearoa (CHA) is building houses for people who couldn’t otherwise afford to buy their own homes.“Tens of thousands of people who might be renting, who might live in something that’s old, cold and mouldy and charging them a lot – look, they really want to have their own place,” says CHA director Scott Figenshow.It sounds laudable, but one of the charities paying for the project might not be a charity for much longer. Its status is under review. It’s not looking good; a similar housing charity in Queenstown has already been deregistered.Apparently providing a home for a family isn’t work a charity should be doing.But the housing charities aren’t alone.“There was a charity in Palmerston North that was operating a food bank,” says lawyer Susan Barker. “Their registration was challenged because they couldn’t prove that the people who were coming to the food bank were poor.”Ms Barker says the people regulating charities are being too harsh. They’re deciding some of these organisations aren’t doing enough or any public good.She reckons of 27,000 registered charities, 5100 have been stripped of their status in the past three years. The most famous examples are Greenpeace and Family First – both of whom argued their way back.“One in five charities are being deregistered. That is enormous because deregistration is supposed to be used only in the most extreme circumstances; it’s the most extreme sanction for a charity.”http://www.3news.co.nz/tvshows/story/small-scale-charities-struggle-to-keep-status-2015090218#axzz3ke3nVyCDlast_img read more

first_imgNZ Herald 17 August 2016Family First Comment: As we highlighted…“The Drug Foundation’s poll finds much less support (30 per cent) for legalising or decriminalising commercial sales of cannabis for any purpose and, oddly, even less support (20 per cent) for allowing small amounts to be grown and sold or given away to friends. Most of us, it seems, want any liberalisation of cannabis to ensure it strictly remains a personal and private activity for those who want it, not a substance for social sharing or commercial promotion.”But how do you regulate that? Remember synthetic cannabis? A disaster! The Prime Minister is unmoved by a poll for the Drug Foundation showing most New Zealanders now support legalising, or at least decriminalising, cannabis. His reluctance is understandable. The last time the Government went down this road, with synthetic cannabis, it got its fingers burned.It is easy to agree, as 64 per cent of those polled did, that possession for personal use should not be a crime. It is almost as easy to agree with the 52 per cent who would decriminalise its cultivation for personal use. But if the purpose is to save police time, it would probably do the reverse. How would police know a person found in possession of cannabis, or cultivating it, had no more than an amount permitted for personal use? And if cannabis was merely decriminalised, remaining illegal, what are police supposed to do about it? Their job is easier when crime is clearly defined.But ease of law enforcement is not the decisive consideration. The law should regulate drugs to the extent necessary to minimise the harm they can do.The case for relaxing the law against cannabis has been helped of late by cancer patients who find it an effective pain reliever. Unsurprisingly, more than 80 per cent of those polled agree cannabis should be permitted for pain relief but, again, changing the law is the easy part. How are people in pain going to be supplied? Must they all grow their own?The Drug Foundation’s poll finds much less support (30 per cent) for legalising or decriminalising commercial sales of cannabis for any purpose and, oddly, even less support (20 per cent) for allowing small amounts to be grown and sold or given away to friends. Most of us, it seems, want any liberalisation of cannabis to ensure it strictly remains a personal and private activity for those who want it, not a substance for social sharing or commercial promotion. But if it is going to be available for medical use it will need some sort of organised production and distribution.READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11695124last_img read more

first_imgTottenham’s Paulinho faces a month on the sidelines after sustaining ankle ligament damage in a challenge with Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam, who has denied suggestions of a personal vendetta against the north Londoners. During his time with Blackpool, Liverpool and Stoke, the 28-year-old has previously clashed with Gareth Bale on two occasions and once with Scott Parker. Tottenham’s anger at yet another incident was clear in a statement on Paulinho’s condition released on Tuesday morning, unusually highlighting the perpetrator’s role in the incident. “Following a MRI scan, the club can confirm that Paulinho has sustained significant ligament damage to his right ankle after a heavy challenge from Charlie Adam during Sunday’s win against Stoke City,” read a statement on the club’s official website, tottenhamhotspur.com. “The Brazil international was forced off as a result of the injury and is expected to be sidelined for at least four weeks.” Tottenham are reportedly considering making a formal complaint about the Scotland international, who came close to moving to White Hart Lane from Blackpool in January 2011. Adam has since become a hate figure with Spurs fans and was booed onto the pitch on Sunday, but rejected the notion of having an issue with Tottenham. “Just for the record and to the people tweeting me abuse saying so, I don’t and never have had anything against @SpursOfficial,” he tweeted via his account, @Charlie26Adam. “And I would never intend to injure a fellow professional.” Adam first caught Bale during his time at Blackpool in a Premier League game in May 2011. The Welshman was ruled out for three months with ankle ligament damage. Press Association They clashed again during a pre-season friendly between Liverpool and Spurs in the United States in 2012, after which Bale described Adam as a “coward”. Adam was also sent off after collecting a second yellow card for a foul on Parker during Spurs’ 4-0 win over Liverpool in September 2011. The Stoke midfielder’s challenge on Paulinho also led Spurs and Brazil team-mate Sandro to wade into the debate, if only in tongue-and-cheek style. The 24-year-old posted “Charlie Adams – THE BEAST IS WATCHING YOU!!!” via his Twitter account, with a link to a photo of him staring ominously into a camera. The Brazil midfielder, who impressed in his first start under new Spurs manager Tim Sherwood, was forced off 62 minutes into Sunday’s 3-0 win after being clattered by the Stoke man. Adam avoided a booking for the challenge but not the anger of Tottenham fans and staff, as this was the fourth time he has been involved in a high-profile incident against Spurs. last_img read more

first_img The Northern Irishman has been majestic all week and while he could not match his back-to-back 66s on Saturday, this round was arguably more impressive because of the way he responded to the challenge. When American Rickie Fowler birdied the 12th – picking up his sixth shot of the day – he drew level with McIlroy on 12 under. “It helps that I’ve been in this position before and I’ve been able to get the job done. “I think whenever you have such a big lead you really can’t think about anyone else but yourself. “You have to think about how you’re going to control your emotions, control whatever thoughts you have and focus on what you need to do.” His focus could not be questioned midway through his third round when it seemed his cloak of invincibility was slipping. “I knew Rickie was playing well in front and then I saw on 12 he got to within one of me and then I bogeyed the hole and it was tied,” he said. “But I never panicked. I didn’t feel uncomfortable. I knew I had some holes coming up I could take advantage of and make some birdies. “I was just very patient and waited for my chances and I was able to convert those. “I was conscious that Rickie was getting a little closer or Sergio (Garcia) but it was nice to be able to come up with the goods when I needed them the last few holes.” Ten years ago McIlroy’s dad Gerry and three friends each placed a £100 bet at odds of 500-1 that his son would become Open champion by the age of 25 but not even they could have expected that would mean he would be three-quarters of the way to a career grand slam. That is what is being talked about now though. “It would mean a lot of hype going into Augusta next year,” said McIlroy. “Not a lot of people have achieved the career grand slam and if everything goes the right way tomorrow to get to three-quarters of the way there is some achievement by the age of 25 (only Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have done it). “I’d be in pretty illustrious company. I didn’t think that I’d even have the chance at 25 to go for three legs of the Grand Slam so I’m going to try to put all of that out of my head. “It would be way too much to think about. First things first, just play a good solid round of golf tomorrow and if that means that I’m going to Augusta next year with a bit of hype, then so be it.” Within four holes the gap was extended to five after McIlroy eagled the 16th and another eagle at the last edged the gap wider even taking into account Fowler’s birdie there moments earlier. The chasing pack may have little hope of catching the 25-year-old, who is looking to secure the third leg of a career grand slam having already won the US Open and US PGA, but he will not be complacent. “I’ve won from seven back this year (at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth just four days after splitting from fiancee Caroline Wozniacki) so I know how leads can go very quickly and I’m not taking anything for granted,” he said. “If the guys in front of me had finished a little better, finished the way I did, then my lead wouldn’t have been as much as it was. “Instead of a six-shot lead it could have been a one or two-shot lead. “A lot can happen and I’ve been on the right side of it and I’ve been on the wrong side of it, that’s why you can’t let yourself think about winning, you’ve just got to completely stay in the present and that’s what I’m going to try to do for all 18 holes tomorrow.” McIlroy looked happy and relaxed during his post-round press conference and while the Claret Jug is effectively his to lose those sort of thoughts are not entering his head. “This is the third night in a row that I’ll sleep on the lead. I feel very comfortable leading the tournament,” added the Northern Irishman, who pledged to maintain his routine of going to the gym, eating and then settling down to watch a film. Open Championship leader Rory McIlroy is taking nothing for granted despite a third-round 68 giving him a six-shot cushion heading into the final day. Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img Advocaat, who has spent much of his managerial career competing for trophies, told SAFSee: “I would still prefer to play at the other side of the league because this is still a little bit frustrating in that we have to fight so hard to stay in. “We thought that with six points, we had enough, and now we have 10 points and we still need three points, so hopefully we can do that on Saturday.” That would provide a successful conclusion to a second remarkable escape in as many seasons, and Advocaat admits he is at a loss to explain why the club has struggled in recent campaigns. He said: “It’s a great club with a great stadium, the facilities at the training ground are brilliant, so in that way you can see that this club deserves more than the bottom, where they have been the last four years.” Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat is hoping to finally complete his survival mission on Saturday after twice having to re-assess his top-flight safety target. The 67-year-old Dutchman arrived on Wearside in March believing six or seven points from the remaining nine games of the campaign might be enough to keep the club in the Barclays Premier League. However, Saturday’s 2-0 win at Everton took his tally to 10 points from six games and the Black Cats are still not mathematically safe heading into this weekend’s showdown with form team Leicester. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img(CMC) – Track and Field’s regional governing body, NACAC, said it did not anticipate any major issues arising after the 49th CARIFTA Games was pushed back until next year because of the novel coronavirus outbreak.Bermuda, who was expected to stage the region’s premier junior track and field championship over the Eastern weekend, has been retained as host and the games will still be designated the 49th edition.Guyana, originally scheduled to host next year’s showpiece, will now be the venue for the 2022 event.“To be quite honest with you, I don’t see any logistical problems beyond the fact obviously the challenge now for Bermuda would be to confirm hotel accommodation which I believe they’re in a good position to do, simply because we have a year out to do it,” said Mike Sands, president of the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association (NACAC).“And obviously (there is the issue of) the travel arrangements into Bermuda. We had several charters lined up that were going to fly from the region including one from Trinidad and one from Antigua.”The decision to postpone the CARIFTA Games was arrived at after talks between the Bermuda National Athletics Association, the CARIFTA local organising committee, the Bermuda government and all CARIFTA countries.Antigua & Barbuda was the first nation to announce its withdrawal from the showpiece in early March and with COVID-19 already impacting several other Caribbean countries, it quickly became apparent the Games were in serious doubt.Already, Bermuda has recorded 57 cases and five deaths, with the Caribbean having reported thousands of confirmed infections.Bermuda’s Sports Minister, Lovitta Foggo, said government fully endorsed the decision to postpone until next year, and Sands said it was important the country was allowed to continue as host.“We took a decision that we would give them the Games in 2021 and it would still be the 49th edition of the Games,” he pointed out.“We’ve already cleared that with them because we’ve been in constant communication with them.”Up to 27 teams had been expected to contest the CARIFTA Games.last_img read more

first_img Related Stories Syracuse role players provide spark off bench in win over WagnerGallery: Syracuse rolls over Wagner 88-57 in home opener Syracuse teased Wagner in the first half.The Orange’s shots clanked off the rim, spoiling good looks at the basket. Syracuse’s misses let the Seahawks stay close, giving them false hope that they could stay competitive for the duration of the game. That hope didn’t last long.The Orange (2-0) broke the game open in the second half, shooting 19-of-28 from the field to cruise to an 88-57 win over Wagner in the Carrier Dome on Sunday in front of 17,273 fans. Brandon Triche continued to assert his role as the floor leader for Syracuse with 21 points, but Michael Carter-Williams sliced Wagner’s defense to create open looks for his teammates.The sophomore finished with 11 assists, eight of them coming in the second half. He dished the ball off effectively and SU’s offense clicked because of it.“I thought he really played like a point guard today,” head coach Jim Boeheim said. “He really got the ball to people. I thought he did a really good job of that, finding people. He had 11 assists, he probably could’ve had 15 or 16 if we made a couple jump shots there.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse shot just 36.1 percent in the first half. Boeheim said his team’s offense was “in and out.” Its jump shots were off the mark and Wagner handcuffed the Orange down low to contest what could’ve been easy layups. But mostly, it was the outside shots where SU struggled the most. Syracuse was just 1-of-10 from beyond the arc.The Orange took a 36-23 lead into the break, but it could’ve been closer if Wagner shot better than a paltry 25 percent from the field. The Seahawks also sent Syracuse to the line 14 times, where it hit nine of those free throws.Against a team that fell to Delaware State in its season opener, Syracuse’s first half was a surprise.“I think we started getting our rhythm in the second half. We started to play Syracuse basketball,” Carter-Williams said. “I think a lot of games are going to be like that when we don’t play well in the first half. We’ve just got to play better in the second half.”Carter-Williams took on the role of playmaker for the entire second half.He found a wide-open C.J. Fair in the right corner less than a minute into the half, and Fair hit the 3-pointer to put Syracuse up 16. About two minutes later, he stole the ball from Wagner’s Kenneth Ortiz, then raced down the court to convert a fast-break layup that gave Syracuse a 45-26 lead.“Mike definitely ran the show in the second half,” forward James Southerland said. “Michael Carter-Williams did a good job of adjusting to the pressure in the second half. He did a good job of finding plays for his teammates, he got us open shots.”Carter-Williams also helped create some crowd-dazzling plays. Four minutes into the second half, he lofted a pass to Rakeem Christmas for an alley-oop. Christmas slammed the ball through the hoop to put Syracuse up 48-29.Everyone on the SU bench rose to their feet and applauded the play that seemingly put a stamp on the game for the Orange.“I was just trying to get other players involved,” Carter-Williams said. “That’s my role on this team, is to get everyone involved and to get everyone open shots.”He even had a dunk of his own at the 13:21 mark. After Seahawks guard Latif Rivers lost the ball, SU guard Trevor Cooney picked it up and dished to Carter-Williams for a fast break slam that made it 54-31 Syracuse.Carter-Williams fed Southerland all through the second half for both shots from the outside and precision passes for dunks. Carter-Williams assisted Southerland on all seven of his second-half points.The sophomore point guard created plays and powered Syracuse’s offense after halftime. The Orange shot nearly 68 percent in the second half, and Carter-Williams was seemingly responsible for all of it.“He’s one of the best guards in the country. He showed it today,” Cooney said. “He not only was able to get to the basket and finish, but he was also able to find open shots for us. He’s able to do that, and when he does that, it only makes us so much better.” Comments Published on November 18, 2012 at 3:02 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @chris_isemancenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgA new AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety report indicates 88 percent of millennials (aged 18 to 25) admitted being  involved in driving infractions in the past 30 days, earning the dubious distinction as the worst behaved U.S. drivers.These dangerous behaviors which increase the risk of accidents, included texting while driving, running red-lights and speeding. These findings come as U.S. traffic deaths rose to 35,092 in 2015, an increase of more than 7 percent, the largest single-year increase in five decades.“Alarmingly, some of the drivers believe their dangerous driving behavior is acceptable,” said Dr. David Yang, AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety executive director. “It’s critical that these drivers understand the potentially deadly consequences of engaging in these types of behaviors and that they change their behavior and attitudes in order to reverse the growing number of fatalities on U.S. roads.”In the research conducted among 2,511 drivers over 16, AAA found 88.4 percent of drivers aged 19 to 24 admitted to engaging in speeding, red light running or texting behind the wheel in the past 30 days include, compared to 68 percent of drivers over age 60.Traffic attorney, Michale Ramos of Miami, concurs with the report as he says over 70 percent of his clients who recently received traffic tickets mostly for speeding, running red lights and testing-while-driving offenses, were young adults age -20 to 35.According to AAA the report, drivers ages 19-24 were 1.6 times as likely as all drivers to report having read a text message or e-mail while driving in the last 30 days (66.1 percent vs. 40.2 percent). Drivers ages 19-24 were nearly twice as likely as all drivers to report having typed or sent a text message or e-mail while driving (59.3 percent vs. 31.4 percent).Regarding speeding offenses, drivers ages 19-24 were 1.4 times as likely as all drivers to report having driven 10 mph over the speed limit on a residential street. Nearly 12 percent of drivers ages 19-24 reported feeling that it is acceptable to drive 10 mph over the speed limit in a school zone, compared to less than 5 percent of all drivers.In the case of drivers who run red lights, the report found nearly 50 percent of drivers ages 19-24 reported driving through a light that had just turned red when they could have stopped safely, compared to 36 percent of all drivers.Nearly 14 percent of drivers ages 19-24 reported feeling that it is acceptable to drive through a light that just turned red, when they could have stopped safely, compared to about 6 percent of all drivers.“Too often we see what can happen as a result of underestimating risk while driving,” said Amy Stracke, AAA – The Auto Club Group managing director for traffic safety advocacy. “Change starts with our own behavior.  We need to set a good example by following speed limits, putting the phone down and fully focusing on the task of driving.”last_img read more

first_img“It has always been a dream of mine to play in the Premier League and I have done.” Jamaican international Wes Morgan has not only realised his dream, he is also flourishing, making up for lost time even, as he leads unlikely title contenders Leicester City on a dream campaign.In many ways, Morgan’s rise has mirrored that of his club. It would fit perfectly well in a fairy tale book – Leicester battling with the big boys this season after last year’s near relegation and Morgan struggling in the lower leagues before making his top-flight debut at 30.”I thought the opportunity to play in the Premier League had passed me by. Everyone wants to play at the highest level, and it took a lot longer than I anticipated and wanted, but I got there eventually. I am enjoying it a lot!” Morgan said.He is today considered one of the most reliable defenders in the English Premier League, but it didn’t always look to be heading in that direction for the towering defender.Morgan was an awkward teenager, overweight with knees that rubbed together – hardly the model look for a footballer.He arrived at Nottingham Forest in 2002 after being cut from Notts County and spending a couple years at Dunkirk in the lower leagues.His arrival at Forest on trial was hardly an ‘arrival’ in truth, with then academy director John Pemberton admitting to hiding the out-of-shape-looking Morgan from the head coach for several months.The defender would eventually whip himself into shape and worked his way into a first team position at the club.”Getting released wasn’t nice. It was hard to take, but I remained positive and I got a trial at Forest, and that was an opportunity to get back into it, and that’s where it all started,” Morgan reminisced to bbc.com.He would end up moving to Leicester after a decade at Forest, where he had developed a reputation has a hard-nosed, studs-to-ankle type of defender. Exactly what the Foxes’ coaching staff was looking for.KEY FACTOREighteen months after making his Premier League debut, Morgan’s strength at the back has been a key factor in Leicester’s table-topping season.The defender is averaging 2.7 interceptions; 1.1 tackles; 5.3 clearances and 1.1 blocks per game to rank among the best in the league.But his focus is on the team and what they can achieve this season.”To be in the position we are in is an achievement in itself. Anything that happens now is definitely a bonus. People tipped us to be relegated at the start of the season, and we are competing at the top of the league,” said Morgan.”We are just delighted with how things have gone so far.”We have a real confidence and belief and know that on our day we can be as good, if not better, than anyone out there in this league,” he added.The Jamaican international has not forgotten his roots either and spends his weekdays coaching youngsters, perhaps with his mind on his own struggles at that stage.last_img read more

first_imgThe pastor of the Bethel Cathedral of Hope, John Baryogar, has urged a newly wedded couple to live their lives in conformity with principles governing marriage as instituted and ordained by God in keeping with the scriptures.Rev. Baryogar gave the admonition Saturday, May 3, during the solemnization of holy matrimony between D. Irene Kwanue, and Jimmy N.C. Bokay in Monrovia.Irene is the daughter of Daily Observer’s educational columnist, C.Y. Kwanue.Both Irene and Jimmy had obtained their first degree from the African Methodist Episcopal Zion University (AMEZU where their relationship began few years ago.“From this day onward till death do you part, the two of you are husband and wife; as such, you must live the life of a marry couple with the motto, “Love, not Hatred,” and shun listening to gossips. Do not entertain negative interferences in your relationship,” Rev. Baryogar warned to the delight of the congregation, comprising mainly young people.According to him, God is the maker of marriage, and as such, the couple should do everything at all times to satisfy or maintain their marital vows relatives to its principles.Quoting Genesis Chapter two, Pastor Baryogar said, “It is not good for the man to be alone,” because God has made for him a suitable female helper.Based on this instruction, he maintained that it was important to know that the one, who makes marriage or family, is still on the throne and, as such, “if we obey the principle of the Bible, we will get the desire results from our marriage.”Other officiating clergies included the Bishop-designate of the Bethel Cathedral of Hope, M. Wolo Belleh, Resident Pastor, Rev. Della B. Belleh, the Assistant Pastor, Rev. Augustus C. Tolbert, among others. The brief, but time-bound and well coordinated ceremony brought together friends, and relatives of the bride and groom as well as other well-wishers.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe Jewish holiday of Hanukkah lasts for eight days. Why? As explained in the Book of Maccabees, the Syrian- Greeks under the leadership of Antiochus conquered Jerusalem in 168 BCE. They destroyed most of the city and its inhabitants. They also desecrated the Temple, Judaism’s holiest site, by erecting statues of pagan gods within it and butchering pigs on its altar. Three years later, Judah Maccabee organized a revolt by Jewish rebels. The Maccabees, as they came to be known, defeated the Syrian-Greeks and entered Jerusalem in triumph. They removed the idols from the Temple, cleaned it and rededicated it. The First Book of Maccabees reports what happened next: “For eight days, they celebrated the dedication of the altar, joyfully offering burnt offerings, communion and thanksgiving sacrifices.” Hanukkah literally means “dedication.” Lighting the great menorah would signify the Temple had been cleansed and rededicated. This required oil that had been consecrated to that purpose. A thorough search of the Temple grounds discovered enough oil to last only one day. Acquiring more would take a week. Rather than wait, the religious authorities decided to light the oil they had and trust in – “dedicate” themselves to – God’s power to work miracles. The one-day measure of consecrated oil continued burning for the entire eight days. This is the miracle we celebrate. There are two kinds of menorahs. The one in the Temple had six branches. During Hanukkah, we use a special one called a Chanukkiah. It has eight branches to hold a separate candle for each day of the celebration. There is a ninth candle, always at a different level than the others, called the Shamash (helper) that we use to light the others. The last question we ask ourselves and our children before we light the candles is, “In what way did you bring light into the world today? In what way is the world a better place today because you are in it?” It is then, and only then, that we light the candles in joyous celebration that we have truly answered God’s call. We wish you a happy Hanukkah, a merry Christmas and a new year filled with many occasions to celebrate. — Rabbi Gary Greenebaum is western regional director of the American Jewish Committee.

In this way, we show no favoritism for any of the individual days. It reminds us that Judaism calls us to be fair and equitable in all our relationships. We light one candle on the first night of Hanukkah, two candles on the second, and so on. Our responsibility as Jews is always to increase – never to decrease – the amount of light in the world. The procedure: Adding from the right, lighting from the left. Hebrew, which is read from right to left, reminds us how to place the candles. On the first night, we place one candle in the far-right-hand branch of the Chanukkiah. On the next, we replace the candle(s) from the night before and add one immediately to its left. Although we add the candles from right to left, we light them from left to right. Why? To teach equality and consideration for others by giving each candle the opportunity to be the first one lit. We recommend that every Jewish family discuss the history and meanings of Hanukkah.

first_imgMinister Zwane to open Mining Indaba 2016 https://t.co/dvHYV5TuIZ via @Mineweb pic.twitter.com/hkba1upiGW— Moneyweb News (@Moneyweb) February 2, 2016Mineral Resources Minister Mosebenzi Zwane was part of a discussion panel at a New Age Business Breakfast held in Sandton on 5 February. The event’s theme was “Revival of the mining sector, its business viability and ensuring job security”.Mineral Resources Discussion underway #TNABizBrief with Minister Zwane, Acting DG Msiza and Analyst Clive @DMR_SA pic.twitter.com/sVT3BkSd9G— Karabo (@Iam_KaraboDark) February 5, 2016The panel included David Msiza, the acting director-general in the Department of Mineral Resources, and investment specialist Clive Ramathibela-Smith. Also in attendance were industry players, government officials and other stakeholders, including Eskom chief executive Brian Molefe.Zwane kicked off the discussion with an admission that 2016 was going to be a challenging year for the mining sector: “This year is not only a time to talk but also for action to push the industry forward.”Msiza added that there were several short- and long-term plans to enable this progress, most vitally addressing mining job losses. “We have formulated a declaration on saving jobs in mining that will have to be implemented this year. Transformation as well as health and safety are also very important to the sector.”Unpacking these important issues during his first five months as minister, Zwane said he had met with several chief executives of primary right holder companies. The meetings had been held to address the lack of progress in the ideals of the Mining Charter, in essence the 26% black ownership goal.According to the minister, all parties wanted to solve this issue amicably, without the need for legal steps, as had been reported in the media, because all parties fully believed in the principles of the charter. He insisted that this was not a compromise on the government’s stance on black empowerment, but something that needed to fit all the stakeholders concerned.“I have also sat down with overseas stakeholders in order to stop predicted job losses. I am happy to say that these discussions managed to save 3 000 jobs in the sector this year.”This was a good step on which to start off the Mining Indaba, Zwane said, with several African governments and private sector players involved in mapping out a constructive way forward for the industry, or as he called it: “reviving the industry to its full potential and ensuring obstacles are removed to address concerns of all stakeholders involved”.All his discussions were fruitful and the parties concerned welcomed his open-door policy regarding labour disputes, including resolving issues with Section 54 mine stoppage notices that had affected productivity during 2015.The panel moderator, SABC’s Peter Ndoro, asked the acting director-general about one of the prominent issues in the sector, particularly when it came to ongoing labour negotiations: the sometimes opaque policy. When do stakeholders get full clarity on mining policies in South Africa, he asked?Msiza reiterated the belief that collaboration was key: “Each stakeholder might have different views on things like policy legislation and labour disputes, but in the end, we all have the same objective, which is the sustainability of the mining sector and that the right people benefit from the industry.”Ongoing negotiations and amendments around the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act and open discussions at events such as the Mining Indaba went a long way to addressing challenges and gaining clarity on what mining in South Africa was and what it should be for all its stakeholders.Further highlightsSelected quotes#Zwane #TNABizBrief the period we are in needs cool heads and proper leadership.

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Silicon Valley-based startup incubator Y Combinator (YC) announced today that is has raised $8.25 million with which it plans to provide funding to a larger group of startups this summer. Leading the funding was Sequoia Capital along with several angel investors, including Ron Conway, Paul Buchheit, Aydin Senkut, XG Ventures, and Geoff Ralston – many of same investors which provided YC with $2 million in March of last year.“The new fund is more than four times larger than the preceding one, partly because it’s meant to last for several years, and partly because we’re going to use it to increase the number of startups we fund,” wrote Y Combinator founder Paul Graham today on the program’s blog. “It looks like we will have at least 35 in the summer 2010 funding cycle.”“We’re going to use it to increase the number of startups we fund. It looks like we will have at least 35 in the summer 2010 funding cycle.”– Paul Graham35 startups would be nearly a 30% increase in participants from the winter session from earlier this year – a good sign that these invaluable startup incubators are continuing to expand and provide further opportunities to a growing number of early-stage companies. In fact, it’s not too late to get in on the game for this summer with YC; the incubator is accepting late applications to assure the best companies are accepted, so those 35 startups and 30% figures could still grow.The more prominent startup incubators have had an attractive track record to venture capitalists, and thus are prime targets for increased amounts of funding. Y Combinator has produced several well known successful startups, such as Bump, DailyBooth, Drop Box, Justin.TV, Loopt and Posterous. TechStars, with programs in Seattle, Boulder and Boston, is responsible for helping startups like Brightkite, Intense Debate, DailyBurn, Occipital and Everlater get off the ground.Young entrepreneurs out there should be excited that programs like Y Combinator and TechStars are continuing to grow because that means the chances of being accepted into one of these highly coveted programs are that much better.

It’s a follow-up to some of the recent changes that Google has made to help tackle email overload, most notably with the addition of the Priority Inbox.The new feature, only available in Labs at the moment, is called Smart Labs and it adds filters to your incoming email based on their type – Bulk, Notification, or Forum.“Bulk” mail includes any kind of mass mailing, such as newsletters and promotional emails. These are filtered out of your inbox. “Notifications” are messages that are sent to you directly, but include things like billing statements and receipts. Email from group mailing lists are labeled as “Forums.” If you already use filters to organize your messages, you’ll be relieved to know that these new labels won’t impact your system. You are able to edit your current filters so that they are included or excluded from the Smart Label categorization. You can also edit the Smart Label filters themselves.If you don’t currently use an elaborate labeling system, then Smart Labels can certainly help you get started by putting some of these very basic filters in place.Having a smarter, more manageable inbox isn’t just something that Google is working on. The new Smart Labels are reminscent of the service offered by OtherInbox, which also helps minimize your email clutter but then goes the extra step of sending you a nice email reminder with a digest of that “other stuff” so that you don’t miss important messages that aren’t in your inbox any more but in some other vast pile of unread messages.To activate the new feature in Gmail, go to the Labs tab under Settings and search for Smart Labels.last_img read more

first_imgUPDATED on Feb. 9, 2017Reformulated versions of spray polyurethane foam with only a tiny fraction of the global warming potential of their predecessors are getting easier to find.Texas-based Demilec, a manufacturer with distribution in both the U.S. and Canada, is among those offering a medium-density closed-cell spray foam made with a hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) blowing agent, the next generation of chemistry for the industry. Similar products are here or on the way.Blowing agents are essential ingredients in spray foam insulation. They create the tiny bubbles of trapped gas that slow the movement of heat and make foam such a good insulator. But the most common blowing agent in spray polyurethane foam today, a hydrofluorocarbon, has a global warming potential (GWP) more than 1,000 times that of carbon dioxide. The HFO Demilec and others now offer — a chemical made by Honeywell called Solstice Liquid Blowing Agent — has a GWP of 1.Demilec’s Heatlok XT HFO enters the market three years ahead of a federal ban on HFC 245fa, the blowing agent that’s now used in most brands of closed-cell spray polyurethane foam. The high GWP of hydrofluorocarbons is one reason some builders flatly refuse to use spray foam, despite its superior insulating and air-sealing characteristics. The transition has been slowMoving from one blowing agent to another is a painful process for manufacturers. Although Honeywell intended Solstice as a drop-in replacement for HFC 245fa, it apparently hasn’t been that simple.“To change a blowing agent, it’s a several year process,” said Rick Duncan, technical director for the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance, an industry trade group. “They have to reformulate their B side and retest all their products in the field, and redo all the fire testing. It costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to do that, and usually a couple of years.”Of the 20 or so major U.S. producers of spray foam component chemicals, what the industry calls “systems houses,” only a few are known to offer HFO-blown foam with a density of 2 lb. per cubic foot — the type of closed-cell foam used in wall and roof cavities. NCFI and Henry Co. have HFO-blown 3-lb. spray foam, the type used on roof exteriors, but not 2-lb. versions.NCFI senior product manager Jason Hoerter said the company is working on a medium-density HFO formulation but isn’t quite ready to roll it out. “I would hope by the end of the year,” he said, “if not sooner.”Lapolla and Elastochem advertise 2-lb. versions on their websites. But product details from the other companies listed by Honeywell were harder to come by.Everyone will have to make the switch eventually, however. Neither Harris nor Duncan think that the change of guard in Washington, with new leadership in the White House and at the EPA, will affect the 2020 deadline currently on the books.In the meantime, do builders really care? Some obviously do, but the clamor for more environmentally benign blowing agents seems to have fallen off in the last few years, Harris said.Part of the reason is that HFC-blown foam still meets the letter of the law, and because of that there isn’t the pressure from building owners and product specifiers for newer versions. Plus, insulation contractors can be wary of experimenting with a new product that hasn’t been used much in the field, what Harris calls the “comfort factor.”“The conversation about environmental impact has waned a bit in the last few years,” he said. “That’s too bad, but it will change again. The industry has been through this transition many times. We wanted to be in front of the curve.”Harris said he expects Demilec, which for now still offers at HFC-blown version, to be “100% HFOs” by the end of this year. Tom Harris, Demilec’s vice president for building science and innovation, said that Heatlok XT HFO is available nationally, although the spray foam will come at a slightly higher cost than foam made with HFCs.Demilec is one of several companies in the U.S. and Canada switching to Solstice LBA. A list provided by Honeywell also includes Lapolla (Foam-Lok 2000-4G); Elastochem Specialty Chemicals , a Canadian company marketing Insulthane Extreme; SES Polyurethane Systems; Covestro; Accella Polyurethane Systems; NCFI Polyurethanes; and Henry Co.However, product details were not available for all of them, and not all of the manufacturers currently have medium-density versions of the foam for insulating wall and roof cavities in houses. Higher cost, better performanceHarris said the new spray foam has several advantages over products made with HFCs. One is an increase in the maximum thickness of each layer, or “lift,” of foam that can be applied without the risk it will catch on fire.Spray foams are mixed on site in an application gun. The ensuing chemical reaction is exothermic — producing heat as well as the characteristic foam. If the foam applied in a single pass is too thick, the chemical reaction can generate so much heat that it catches on fire. Typically, spray foam can be applied in lifts of a couple of inches, but Harris said XT HFO can be applied 6 1/2 inches thick in a single pass.The HFO-blown foam also has high R-values: R-6.3 per inch when measured in a 2-inch thick layer, but R-7.4 per inch at a depth of 8 inches, Harris said. The “stacked R-value” is higher, he said, because the thermal resistance of a thicker layer of foam is not linear — it adds up faster than a simple multiplication of its 1-inch R-value would suggest.Contractors who have used the foam say it handles better than HFC-blown version; it has less of a tendency to “stick in the gun,” which reduces the number of times a gun must be cleaned during the day, according to Harris. This post was updated on Feb. 9 with new information provided by Honeywellcenter_img Friendlier Foam Insulation On the Way, EventuallyAvoiding the Global Warming Impact of InsulationCalculating the Global Warming Impact of Insulation New Blowing Agent Addresses Climate Impact of Foam InsulationInsulation to Keep Us Warm — Not Warm the PlanetPHIUS Says No to Some Types of Spray FoamGreen Basics: Spray Foam Insulation: Open- and Closed-Cell RELATED ARTICLES Honeywell says interest is growingHoneywell said through a spokeswoman that spray foams formulated with Solstice LBA have “grown tremendously” over the last year.“The conversion to Solstice LBA systems [is] being seen in both residential and commercial markets,” the company said. “Over 30% of the systems houses have adopted Solstice systems well ahead of regulations. Why? Because the systems have better performance and are better for the environment. We are consistently seeing improved thermal performance and yields up to a 10 percent improvement.”One concern with contractors will be cost, but Honeywell said the impact should actually be minimal even if the price of the blowing agent itself is a little higher.“The superior performance in thermal performance and yields will make these systems cost-neutral to the contractor on an installed basis,” the spokeswoman said in an email.The company also asserts there has been an “uptick” in the demand for products with a better environmental footprint, not the waning of interest Harris mentioned.No matter what blowing agents are used for the spray foam, some builders and designers are likely to stay away from the insulation. 475 High Performance Building Supply, for example, is a proponent of foam-free construction. The firm argues against foam on a number of grounds, including the toxicity of its ingredients and the danger it poses in the event of fire. Like-minded designers and builders would rather specify a material like cellulose or mineral wool and stay away from insulation based on petrochemicals.last_img read more

first_imgXiaomi is gearing up to launch a new Note in China. This would be the successor of the Redmi Note 4 and will be called the Redmi Note 5. No surprises there. The phone will be launched first in China but given how  popular is the Redmi Note 4 in India there is a chance that the Note 5 may also come to India pretty soon. So far there are a number of specs and leaks that we have seen concerning the Redmi Note 5. The latest comes from the website of TENAA, the Chinese agency for certifying gadgets and electronics goods.The phone last week was spotted on TENAA, giving details of its specifications. The webpage for the Note 5 showed that it will come with a 18:9 aspect ratio radio and nearly bezel-less design. If Xiaomi launches the Redmi Note 5 with prices similar to the earlier Redmi Note phones, it is possible that this phone would be the first phone in its segment to come with bezel-less screen.But we get ahead of ourselves. Before we talk of the expected here is everything that we know about the Redmi Note 5, including its possible specs and features.Display: The latest leak from TENAA suggest that Xiaomi will launch a bezel-less Redmi Note 5. There are rumours that the phone will come with 6-inch 18:9 full HD IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.Design: It has been rumoured that for the Redmi Note 5, Xiaomi is working on an entirely new design that will make the phone look very premium. The Redmi Note 5 is expected to sport a metal body and edge-to-edge screen. It is expected that the device will have fingerprint sensor on the rear instead of on the front the way the Redmi Note 4 has. This, suggest rumours, is being done so that on the front of the Note 5 there is just screen and nothing else.advertisementBattery: There are speculations that the Redmi Note 5 will come with a smaller battery than the one inside the Note 4. The Redmi Note 4 comes with a 4100mAh battery while leaks hint that the Redmi Note 5 may come with a 4000mAh battery.Also Read: Xiaomi’s bezel-less Redmi Note 5 may ship with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processorProcessor: Earlier rumours hinted that Note 5 could come with Snapdragon 630 nut now a report from GizmoChina suggests that Xiaomi could use Snapdragon 636 in the Redmi Note 4 successor. The Snapdragon 636 is made on 14nm FinFET technology and it was announced recently, so it seems that the Note 5 could be the first phone to use it. Qualcomm says the Snapdragon 636 offers 40 per cent better performance compared to the Snapdragon 630 as it uses newly-minted Kryo 260 cores.  The Snapdragon 636 is a 64-bit octa-core processor with eight cores of Kryo 260 clocked at the speed of 1.8 GHz.Also Read: Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 prototype leak shows off bezel-less screen and dual camerasCamera: The TENAA leak also shows that the Redmi Note 5 could come with a single lens camera contrary to earlier rumours that suggested that the phone would come with dual camera lens. Chances are that Xiaomi could integrate the dual camera set up in one of the variants of the Note 5. So far, it is rumoured that the Redmi Note 5 will come with 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera.RAM and storage: There  could be three variants of the Redmi Note 5: base variant of the Redmi Note 5 with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, Note 5 with 4GB RAM with 32GB storage and one with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.Price: There are speculations that the base model of Redmi Note 5 could be priced around  $175 (approx Rs 11,338), 4GB RAM and 32GB storage at  $175 (approx Rs 11,338), and lastly the Redmi Note 5 with 64GB storage at $220 (approx Rs 14,253). In other words, when it comes to India it is possible that the Redmi Note 5 will cost similar to what the Redmi Note 4 costs right now.last_img read more

first_imgA generic picture of three footballs next to a pylonOne college football program will be without its starting quarterback for a significant portion of the season. According to the Las Vegas Sun, University of Nevada, Las Vegas quarterback Armani Rogers is out indefinitely.Rogers reportedly suffered a toe injury in the team’s loss to Arkansas State over the weekend. As a result, head coach Tony Sanchez revealed that Rogers will be out “indefinitely”It’s a tough blow for the Rebels, who sit at 2-2 on the season after Saturday’s loss. Sophomore Max Gilliam will take over as the team’s starter while Rogers is out.Here’s more from the report:The expected timeline for Rogers’ injury — a torn plantar plate — is about six weeks, though UNLV head coach Tony Sanchez didn’t want to put a timeline on Rogers’ return.“Best-case scenario, maybe six weeks,” Sanchez said. “It could be longer or shorter, but right now we’ll put the ‘indefinitely’ on it.”Rogers not only leads the team in passing, but he also is the team’s leading rusher after four games.Gilliam kicked off his college career at Cal before transferring to Saddleback College. At Saddleback last year, he completed 69.7 percent of his passes for 1,185 yards and 10 touchdowns with seven interceptions.[Las Vegas Sun]last_img read more

first_imgIn an open letter published in The Times (London) newspaper and promoted through a digital billboard at Waterloo station, American celebrities Susan Sarandon, Daryl Hannah and Robert Kennedy Jr joined US NGOs, trade groups and businesses such as Food & Water Watch, the Sierra Club, the Rachel Carson Council, Friends of the Earth, the Organic Consumers Association, Dr Bronner’s and NYR Organic to warn British citizens of the dangers of growing GM crops and urge them to speak out before it’s too late.The warning comes at a critical time as the European Parliament will vote in January whether member states can decide for themselves to grow GM crops or not. If this legislation is passed, the UK could see the planting of commercial GM crops within the next six to eighteen months.The letter, which highlights the problems and challenges which American farmers, consumers and others have faced over nearly two decades of growing and eating GM crops, was delivered to Downing Street by a delegation which included fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, actor Jeremy Irons and chef Val Warner and MPs, Zac Goldsmith and Michael Meacher. It also included the two campaigners from the US who helped drive the letter, Pamm Larry and Diana Reeves, as well as Beyond GM Director, Pat Thomas, who coordinated the effort in the UK.The fully referenced letter, signed by groups and individuals representing some 57 million members and supporters, argues that GM crops have never delivered on their promises to increase yields and profits or to decrease pesticide use. In fact, they have done the opposite with the cost of growing GM crops now greater than conventional crops in the US and pesticide use 24% higher amongst GM farmers than non-GM farmers planting the same crops.The environmental harm caused by this increased herbicide has also led to the destruction of vital insect and bee populations. The population of the Monarch butterfly, for example, has dropped by over 80% in some parts of the US as the herbicide, Roundup, kills milkweed – the Monarch’s key food source. It also damages soil structure and makes essential micronutrients unavailable to the plant and therefore our food.The Americans warn that after nearly 20 years of use, GM ingredients are now everywhere in their food chain – over 70% of all processed foods in the US contain them. As a result, traces of glyphosate – the active ingredient in Roundup – have been found in high levels in the breast milk and urine of American mothers as well as in their drinking water. The levels in the breast milk were around 1,600 times higher than what is currently allowable in European drinking water.The American signatories believe their experience of using what they call a “failing agricultural technology” serves as a warning to other countries about to journey down the same road. They conclude that GM food “has never really been about public good, or feeding the hungry, or supporting farmers. Nor is it about consumer choice. Instead it’s about private, corporate control of the food system.”Susan Sarandon says: “Instead of bringing certainty and security, GMOs have raised more and more worrying questions about their effectiveness, their necessity, and even their safety. Polls show that the majority of US citizens – and in fact citizens everywhere – either want them labelled or taken out of the food system altogether.”Activist attorney Robert Kennedy Jr says: “An informed and engaged public is one of our greatest weapons against widespread threats to health and environmental justice. Initiatives like The Letter from America highlight clearly the problems we have faced in the US in the 17 years we have been planting and eating GMOs.”Vivienne Westwood, who was one of the British celebrities who helped deliver the petition to Downing Street this morning says: “GMOs are a democratic issue. They are a massive, unethical experiment in human and environmental health. People are voicing legitimate concerns about how they and their families will be affected by eating them, how planting them will affect the environment and biodiversity, how forcing them on developing countries will disempower and impoverish farmers there and most of all why, if so many unanswered question remain about GMOs, our government is continuing to try and force them on the British public.”Pat Thomas, the campaign director for Beyond GM says: “The American experience of GMOs shines a light on how our own food future will unfold if we continue to race pell-mell down the road to a genetically modified Britain. It also can teach us about the importance and effectiveness of public engagement. Biotech companies have spent a lot of time and money sidelining public opinion, and turning the GM debate into an abstract and academic affair. It’s time the public was brought back into the ‘public debate’ about what they eat, and what they feed their children, and it’s time politicians and regulators started listening.”For the full version of the Letter from America please visit: www.theletterfromamerica.org.last_img read more

7 March 2008The head of the United Nations anti-crime agency today welcomed Thailand’s arrest of Viktor Bout, the infamous weapons smuggler, dubbed the “Merchant of Death,” who is accused of profiting from some of the most violence conflicts around the globe. The head of the United Nations anti-crime agency today welcomed Thailand’s arrest of Viktor Bout, the infamous weapons smuggler, dubbed the “Merchant of Death,” who is accused of profiting from some of the most violence conflicts around the globe. “Let him face justice for the destruction that he has inflicted on humanity,” Antonio Maria Costa, Executive Director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, said of Mr. Bout, who was apprehended in Bangkok yesterday. Seen as a kingpin in the global trade of illegal arms, he is believed to have been the inspiration for the character played by Nicolas Cage in the 2005 film “Lord of War.” The vast majority of firearms, one of the planet’s biggest killers, used in conflicts start out legally traded but end up in the illicit market through theft, corruption, poor management and weak transfer control mechanisms. Mr. Costa urged Thailand to ratify the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime to “make it easier to bring criminals of [Mr. Bout’s] ilk to justice, for example through mutual legal assistance and extradition.” He also took the opportunity to appeal to Member States to ratify the UN Firearms Protocol – also known as the Protocol against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms, Their Parts and Components and Ammunition – and “implement its measures to stop arms dealers from flooding the world with illicit weapons.” According to UNODC, three quarters of the nearly 1 billion guns in circulation worldwide are in the hands of civilians. Every year, 8 million new guns are manufactured, as well as billions of ammunition rounds – enough to kill the world’s population twice over. “The Firearms Protocol – which is a powerful yet forgotten piece of international law – can reduce the threat posed by these weapons,” said the UNODC head. In a related development, the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs will meet next week in Vienna to review progress made on global drug control efforts. One decade ago, the General Assembly committed itself to “eliminating or significantly reducing the illicit cultivation of the coca bush, the cannabis plant and the opium poppy by the year 2008.” The upcoming weeklong meeting – which will be attended by ministers and top anti-narcotics officials from 53 member countries of the Commission, including Bolivia, Colombia and Iran – will assess the effectiveness of measures that have been taken. “The drug control system has succeeded in containing drug use to less than 5 per cent of the adult population of the world,” Mr. Costa said, calling this an “extraordinary” achievement. “However, the problem has not been solved; fundamental objectives of the drug control conventions have not yet been achieved, and some of the targets set ten years ago remain elusive,” he warned. Next week’s meeting will focus on issues such as the impacts of drug trafficking, reducing demand, and alternative development as a key drug control strategy. read more

The cyclist who was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after a hit-and-run collision in Tillsonburg Tuesday, has died, OPP said in a statement Wednesday.Michael Jones, a Tillsonburg resident, was hit by a vehicle at the intersection of Broadway and Christie Street shortly before 11 a.m. Tuesday.After a second collision, the OPP charged Springfield’s Mark Newell with a raft of crimes.Newell is charged with theft of a motor vehicle, criminal negligence causing death, failing to stop at the scene of an accident resulting in death, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.He is being held in custody, provincial police said.Police are asking anyone with information to contact Oxford County OPP at 1-888-310-1122.Tips can be submitted anonymously via Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. read more

“In the end we are all facing poverty if we fail to address environmental decline, if we fail to reinvest in nature’s capital,” UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Executive Director Klaus Toepfer told the opening session of a three-day brainstorming seminar at the London School of Economics on how to mainstream environment in pro-poor development strategies.“You cannot continue to drive a car if all you do is put petrol in the tank,” he warned. “It needs servicing, parts require replacing and we must pay for the roads and infrastructure on which it runs. In reality, nature is even more complicated. “By continually depleting and damaging it and without investment in the running, maintenance and management costs, the Earth’s life support can suddenly and abruptly fade or switch to become less productive and unpredictable.“I believe we are slowly winning this political and economic argument but not fast enough. So we must hurry up, otherwise all 6 billion of us will eventually be scratching around trying to survive,” he added.The 10-12 October seminar has brought together experts in environmental economics as well as senior figures from the environmental and intergovernmental fields. They are discussing multilateral agreements governing such environmental concerns as biological diversity, migratory species and the global climate.These treaties could go a long way towards helping refine ecosystem valuations and to improve cost-benefit analysis of targeted investments in degraded ecosystems to boost political and financial support for this nature-based approach.One of the primary aims is to see how pro-poor markets can be created to generate income for those in desperate need while conserving the life-support systems upon which they and the rest of the world depend. read more

The two men discussed the escalating humanitarian crisis and the disconcerting rise in sectarian violence in Syria over a working dinner in New York last night, according to a read-out provided by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson. In June, discussions about the international conference were held in Geneva with participation from senior United States, Russian and UN officials, led by the Joint Special Representative of the UN and the League of Arab States, Lakhdar Brahimi.Still not scheduled, the goal of such a conference would to be to achieve a political solution to the conflict in Syria through a comprehensive agreement between the Government and the opposition for the full implementation of the Geneva communiqué of 30 June 2012.Issued after a meeting of the Action Group for Syria, the document lays out key steps in a process to end the violence. Among others, it calls for the establishment of a transitional governing body, with full executive powers and made up by members of the present Government and the opposition and other groups, as part of agreed principles and guidelines for a Syrian-led political transition.Since fighting began in March 2011 between the Syrian Government and opposition groups seeking to oust President Bashar Al-Assad, more than 100,000 people have been killed, almost 2 million have fled to neighbouring countries and a further 4 million have been internally displaced. In addition, at least 6.8 million Syrian require urgent humanitarian assistance.Mr. Ban and Mr. Lavrov also discussed the Middle East peace process, with the UN chief saying he was encouraged by the resumption of direct negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and reiterating that the UN would do its utmost to support them.The Secretary-General and the Foreign Minister also discussed the situations in Lebanon and Afghanistan, among other topics. read more

While congratulating the Government and people of Liberia for the progress made so far as reflected by “clear evidence” that new cases of Ebola were reducing, Dr. Nabarro said in an interview with UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) radio, in Monrovia: “The disease has not gone away.”“You have to stay alert, vigilant and sustain the response until every last person with Ebola infection is able to be treated and then the virus goes away,” he said. “That continued alert and vigilance is absolutely essential, otherwise things will get worse again like they were in August and September.”During his visit, he met with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, as well as staff at the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response’s (UNMEER) office in Monrovia, and key Ebola response partners in the country. In his radio interview, Dr. Nabarro urged Liberians to “to work at county level to continue to find people who are suspected to having Ebola and make sure they are properly assessed and diagnosed, and then treated.”“In all disease control efforts, we see that the most dangerous time is actually when it looks as though you are near a point where the disease is coming under control because people relax and stop being vigilant,” he said. “And so we need to have the money, commitment and the people until every last case is under treatment.”He also encouraged Liberians to “work with other countries in the region so they too can move into direction you have.”Meanwhile, World Bank Group President, Jim Yong Kim, who is also in the region, travelled today from Guinea to Sierra Leone, where he pledged his organization will stay “until it gets to zero Ebola cases,” boost economic development and open doors for businesses in the West African country. Mr. Kim said in remarks to reporters in Conakry however, that the Bank did not “need to wait until we get to zero cases to start working on the economic recovery, so our second area of support is agriculture.”“We are concerned that agricultural production has dropped significantly as a result of this Ebola epidemic,” he said. “We will help farmers recover from this crisis by boosting agriculture productivity, enhancing the skills of workers, as well as by promoting regional trade integration. We must make sure that the Ebola epidemic is not followed by a food security crisis.”The UN World Health Organization today released its latest figures on the outbreak, which showed that 17,145 reported cases with 6070 reported deaths. WHO also reported that new cases were slightly increasing in Guinea, stable or declining in Liberia, and “may still be increasing in Sierra Leone.”“Response activities in the three intense-transmission countries continue to intensify in line with the UNMEER aim to isolate and treat 70 per cent of cases, and safely bury 70 per cent Ebola-related deaths by 1 December, with the ultimate goal of reaching 100 per cent by 1 January,” the WHO report said. Meanwhile today, the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, has established an Ebola isolation centre in the refugee camp in Kouankan, Guinea hosting more than 5,000 refugees, UNMEER reported, adding that no Ebola cases have yet been registered in the camp. read more

Among the dozens of events that kicked off the opening in Sendai, Japan, of the Third World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, a key multi-stakeholder dialogue heard participants urge greater efforts to expand and strengthen opportunities, and make full use of the leadership of women in disaster risk reduction. When disasters strike, women are most heavily impacted but often overcome immense obstacles to lead response efforts and provide care and support, even at risk of their own health and well-being, the heads of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), told the first of the Conference’s intergovernmental high-level partnership dialogues, on “Mobilizing Women’s Leadership in Disaster Risk Reduction.”The aim of the Conference, which wraps up Wednesday, 18 March, is to update the landmark Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), agreed decade ago and named after the Japanese city in which it was negotiated and which details the work required from all sectors and actors to reduce disaster losses.According to the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), while progress has been made in the implementation of the HFA, it is widely recognized that serious gaps and challenges remain in delivering on the international community’s commitments to gender equality and women’s rights in disaster risk reduction efforts. Engagement and leadership of women as change agents in their societies are still often overlooked in disaster risk management, where women are often categorized as a vulnerable group.WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin underscored that the “global reset” beginning today in Sendai – the first of a crucial series of UN-backed conferences and meetings set for 2015 respectively on development financing, sustainable development and climate change, all aimed at ensuring a safer and more prosperous world for all – must include steps to place women at the centre of disaster risk reduction efforts.Without those steps, none of the ambitious goals proposed this year would be met. Questioning why there had been more “grey suits” in the room of the main hall when the Third World Conference had opened earlier today “than there are when we are here talking about women,” she said disasters indeed exacerbated pre-existing barriers and inequalities that women faced, putting them at greater risk of injury and death.As such, “women must be sitting in the lead chairs during these discussions; they must be part of the decision-making; they must be part of this conversation,” Ms. Cousin said, stressing that it is time cast aside the restrictive view of women as vulnerable and merely accepting aid. Indeed, women must be recognized for who they are and the roles they undertake, which are central pillars of disaster response and recovery.“We must recognize and mobilize women going forward…it is time to move from aspiration to implementation,” she said calling for efforts to ensure commitments made in the landmark Beijing Platform for Action, which is this year marking its 20th anniversary, as well as the Hyogo Framework.For his part, UNFPA Executive Director Babatunde Osotimehin said the Sendai Conference offers a new opportunity for the world to galvanize around a common disaster risk reduction agenda and commit to collective actions that put women at its centre.The fact that serious gaps remain in the area is not for lack of guidance and tools on relevant gender-based approaches and best practices. What is needed is requisite political will to make ensure that women’s voices were enhanced and participation ensured. All such efforts must bolster women’s rights, included sexual and reproductive health rights, he said.Continuing, he suggested key actions that could be taken at all levels, stressing that dedicated resources are lacking and as such, money must be devoted to disaster risk reduction and women must be empowered to play a real role in that area. Mr. Osotimehin also said sustained and sustainable disaster risk reduction requires an accountability framework with indicators and targets to measure progress and ensure that national and local actors move towards implementation.In a keynote address, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said his country had endured many disasters and such harsh experiences had Japan keenly aware that the power of women is essential for risk reduction as well as reconstruction in the wake of such events.He said that Japan had long understood the importance of enhancing the voice, visibility and participation of women. Fore example, he said that if a disaster struck during the middle of the day, most of the people at home would be women so their perspective is essential “absolutely essential for restoring devastated.”“’No matter how much the ground shakes, we will remain calm in our hearts,’” said Prime Minister Abe, quoting the powerful words of women in one of the districts he had visited in the wake of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and pledging Japan’s ongoing strong commitment to ensuring all women played a greater role in disaster risk reduction.The panel was co-Chaired by Sanae Takaichi, Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japan and Loren Legarda, Senator from the Philippines.Panellists included Tarja Halonen, Former President of Finland, Emiko Okuyama, Mayor of Sendai city, Kristalina Georgieva, Vice-President of the European Commission for Budget and Human Resources, and Adi Vasulevu Merewalasi of FemLINKPACIFIC. read more

Given his reputation as a dual-threat QB, it might surprise you (it surprised us) that Watson led a pass-first offense last year, averaging almost double the yards through the air (334) as on the ground (170). According to expected points added, Clemson’s passing game generated 9.1 more points per contest than its rushing attack. Fast forward to 2017, and the offense has changed its focus, winning with a dominating run game. As a team, the Tigers are rushing for 105 yards more a game than last year, causing their offensive EPA to tilt in favor of the running game by 10 points per game.After serving as Watson’s understudy for his first two years, junior quarterback Kelly Bryant has been a driving force behind this change in playing style. Bryant is notching 25 yards more on the ground per game than Watson did last season. And he already has seven rushing touchdowns — Watson scored nine all of last season.It’s not been all about the offense, though. Defensive holdovers Austin Bryant and Dorian O’Daniel have helped Clemson’s D generate 6.1 more EPA per game in 2017 than it did last year. And unlike the offense, the Tigers’ defense has improved against both the pass and the run, cutting their points allowed per game almost in half to just 9.2.Swinney’s greatest coaching feat may come soon if Clemson continues winning. So few coaches in the game have shown the ability to continue winning amid a drastic change in playing style — Nick Saban and his recent rotating stable of quarterbacks at Alabama come to mind. And, not coincidentally, Saban — whose Alabama teams faced off against Clemson in the past two title games — will likely be waiting for him in the College Football Playoff. Undefeated and ranked No. 2 in the AP poll, the defending champion Clemson Tigers are roughly a third of the way to reaching this season’s college football national title game. It would be their third straight trip. That’s hard to do, so much so that no college football team has made it to three in a row since the Florida State Seminoles did so from 1998 to 2000.On Saturday, Dabo Swinney’s 4-0 Tigers will travel to Virginia Tech for what may be their toughest — and most important — game until the playoff bracket is decided. And they’re already coping with one major change in 2017 from the school’s last two dominating teams: Deshaun Watson now plays for the Houston Texans. But despite the departure of the superlative quarterback, Clemson has managed to survive by transforming the strength of its offense overnight.Heading into 2017, you couldn’t be blamed for thinking Watson’s production would be sorely missed. After all, he averaged 5,218 total yards in his last two seasons at Clemson — 4,351 yards passing and 867 yards running. And as we’ve previously noted, it’s difficult for teams to maintain offensive efficiency the season after losing their starting quarterback. But Clemson hasn’t missed a beat on offense. The Tigers are averaging 37.8 points per game through four games, compared with 39.2 for all of last season, and that includes a 14-6 dogfight with the Auburn Tigers in Week 2. So how has Clemson managed to play so well despite losing their talismanic quarterback? read more

first_imgObtala Resources has recovered a 23.30 ct and 11.92 ct ‘special’ stone from its Bakidu operation in Sierra Leone. In addition to this special stone (defined as being greater than 10.8 ct), six stones of 5.15, 5.16, 5.75, 7.60, 8.86 and 9.05 ct have been recovered. The mining licences for this alluvial diamond mining operation at Konoma are held by the 100% owned Obtala subsidiary, Sierra Leone Hard Rock (SLHR). Over the past two months, Obtala has been evaluating a change in the current mining strategy, adopted from previous workers. Historically most of the production was processed through the main 2 Mt/y DMS plant located at Konoma. Obtala intends to revise this strategy in an attempt to reduce operating costs and improve overall production rates, by using a number of lower-cost mobile DMS plants which will be strategically located along the Bafi River. These smaller units will allow for focused, localised mining with reduced haulage distances and operating costs. Obtala is currently operating a 5 t/h DMS at the Bakidu site, some 15 km east of the Konoma main plant.Historic bulk sampling at Bakidu identified a mineralised palaeo-channel with results indicating that grades of 0.17ct/m3 are achievable, with the current work by Obtala confirming this grade estimate. Obtala has recovered 963.95 ct from 8,336 t of gravel processed at Bakidu, with an average stone size of 0.73 ct per stone. Geological continuity of this channel is possible and represents upside potential for the project. Additional exploration for such palaeo-channels will offer further upside potential and be will locations where the mobile DMS plants will operate in the future.Additional capital equipment has been purchased with an excavator expected to arrive in-country in late August and an additional excavator expected in late November of this year. Diamonds recovered from the gravels treated are reported at over 95% gem quality.The local Community Mining Scheme, which is fully endorsed by the Government of Sierra Leone is in full operation with 450 local miners employed, with stones expected to be recovered within the next week or so. Frank Scolaro, Chairman of Obtala, commented: “The results of this work at Bakidu, utilising the mobile DMS unit, illustrates the way forward for the mining strategy of the company. The recovery of the ‘special’ stones with this small scale plant demonstrates that low cost production with high profitability is very achievable. We continue to optimise operations with a view to increasing our production levels, which will be greatly enhanced with the arrival of new mining equipment. The on-going Community Mining Scheme is very encouraging and has helped build our relationship with the local community and I am delighted that they will shortly start to produce stones. We remain focussed on achieving our goal of low cost, quality production which produces a sustainable and profitable business”last_img read more

first_imgWhen a for-profit business that travels the nation buying coins, precious metals and paper currency made a stop in Vancouver this week, Ed and Mary Ann Statler decided to check it out.“There were old coins that we had been carrying around for years,” said Mary Ann Statler, 67. “I went on the Internet to see what they were worth.” Then she and Ed, 70, headed to the International Coin Collectors Association event, where the Battle Ground couple sold several historic coins and some silver.Despite concerns posted online about the coin-collecting business and its parent, THR & Associates, Mary Anne Statler said she felt she got a good deal on the trades — selling old pennies for two cents that have a resale value of three cents, for example.Online criticisms primarily focus on THR & Associates’ approach to valuing goods, which is done without the use of an appraiser, and on the fact that the company does not allow sellers to reclaim merchandise, which is often required of pawn shops and other physical stores.last_img read more

first_imgA video deposition of a man implicated in the 1997 John Hartman murder in Fairbanks, was played in court Wednesday.Download AudioThe interview of Jason Wallace aired as part of an evidenciary hearing being conducted to determine if four other men, convicted of the crime, are innocent.The Wallace deposition offered no new insight into the Hartman attack, as Wallace repeatedly invoked the 5th amendment right not to self-incriminate.Meanwhile Judge Paul Lyle refuted state attorney’s attempts to suppress earlier statements Wallace made about his involvement to attorneys in 2003, while initially jailed for an unrelated killing for which he’s now serving life in prison.Judge Lyle says Wallace’s recently leaked statements about the Hartman attack can’t be used against him, but will be put into the court record.“If Mr. Wallace were ever charged with anything, or any civil suit were ever filed against Mr. Wallace related to what he said to his attorney, those statements would not be admissible under the current rules, but they’re admissible in this proceeding,” he said.Judge Lyle emphasized that it’s still to be decided if Wallace’s statements about the Hartman attack will be considered in determining the innocence of the four other men convicted of the crime.“Whether or not they are admitted for hearsay purposes, is the next level of analysis,” Lyle said.Wallace’s 2003 statement says he and friends randomly targeted 15-year-old John Hartman on a downtown street.His accounting is to some degree backed by a more recent confession from former Fairbanks friend William Holmes, who’s also serving life for other killings. Holmes testified Monday that he drove the car, while Wallace and others went after Hartman.The hearing is expected to continue through October, after which judge Paul Lyle could exonerate the men convicted of the Hartman killing.George Frese, Eugene Vent, and Kevin Pease remain jailed.

first_imgNew Delhi: Former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram’s plea to see the evidence before it is placed before the court will adversely affect several cases involving economic offenders and terror funding, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the Supreme Court on Thursday. Mehta, representing the Enforcement Directorate, was arguing before a bench headed by Justice Banumathi. He contended that if the court accepts Chidambaram’s plea then it is bound to adversely affect other cases including those of Vijay Mallya, Mehul Choksi, Nirav Modi, Shardha chit fund, terror funding and others. Also Read – Shah urges women to shun plastic bags Advertise With Us “Chidambaram’s submission to confront him with the evidence before the same is placed before court is preposterous. It will lead to exposing evidences and witnesses in similar cases at an investigating stage,” Mehta submitted before the court. He further argued that at pre-complaint stage the prosecution is entitled to oppose bail based on material in its possession, and whether the accused’s reply to its queries was evasive or not, is a decision within the ambit of the probe agency. Also Read – Free bus travel for women gets Cabinet nod Advertise With Us “Confronting the accused with evidence who is free, it is an open invitation to tamper the evidence…cannot show the material even to the court, due to the sensitivity of the material,” submitted Mehta. He said that if the evidence was shown to the accused then he will immediately erase the details of the money trail. He referred to Chidambaram as an individual having resources and knowledge on the issues. Advertise With Us Maintaining the secrecy of the material in possession of the agency is vital, Mehta said adding it is best to confront the accused with evidence when he is in custody. And, if accused is confronted with evidence at a pre anticipatory bail stage, then this would destroy the case. Arguing on the jurisdiction of the top court, Mehta said the court cannot be created as a regular court entertaining the appeal of the orders of the high courts, lower courts, and magistrates. “Supreme Court is meant to lay down the law,” stated Mehta. Mehta also justified the High Court’s observation that the allegations against Chidambaram are grave. “The quantum of punishment is no measurement of gravity of offence. What is relevant is the impact of the offence on society and the nation… Offences against the economy of the country… Economic offences are gravest of offences,” contended Mehta in court. Mehta rubbished Chidambaram’s lawyers’ argument that the alleged transaction took place in 2007-08 and that PMLA provisions, under which he is charged, were introduced in 2009. He informed the court that the offence has continued till date, and the money acquired, following these corrupt transactions, eventually helped Chidambaram acquire property and further launder. On the retrospective effect of PMLA, Mehta argued that the Section 8 of PMLA, 2002 was in the statute at the very inception. Therefore, there is no retrospective imposition of charges on Chidambaram. He told the court under specific sections of the Act, it is clearly held that those who assist or play an active role in shielding the laundered money, technically are also guilty of money laundering.last_img read more

first_imgSandy Huffaker/AFP/Getty Images/Via NPRShoppers walk toward the San Ysidro, Calif., Port of Entry after making purchases at outlet malls along the US-Mexico border on Dec. 29.Updated Jan. 25 at 9:05 a.m. ETThe Trump administration on Friday is implementing its plan requiring asylum-seekers, mainly from Central America, to remain in Mexico while their legal proceedings are conducted in the U.S. court system.The policy will be rolled out at San Diego’s San Ysidro border crossing, the nation’s busiest, a senior official with U.S. Customs and Border Protection tells NPR. The plan, coming out of talks with Mexican officials, is to bus asylum-seekers back and forth from Tijuana, Mexico, to a courthouse in downtown San Diego. The administration plans to eventually implement the policy at other border crossings.Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen first announced the plans for this “historic” policy, called the “Migration Protection Protocols,” in a memo issued in late December.“Aliens trying to game the system to get into our country illegally will no longer be able to disappear into the United States, where many skip their court dates. Instead, they will wait for an immigration court decision while they are in Mexico. ‘Catch and release’ will be replaced with ‘catch and return,’” said Nielsen.“Catch and release” is a term the Trump administration uses for the traditional policy of allowing asylum-seekers to remain in the U.S. pending a court hearing.A “Fact Sheet” issued by the Department of Homeland Security to explain the new policy says asylum seekers “will be given a ‘Notice to Appear’ for their immigration court hearing and will be returned to Mexico until their hearing date.”“While aliens await their hearings in Mexico, the Mexican government has made its own determination to provide such individuals the ability to stay in Mexico, under applicable protection based on the type of status given to them.“Aliens who need to return to the U.S. to attend their immigration court hearings will be allowed to enter the U.S. and attend that hearing. Aliens whose claims are found meritorious by an immigration judge will be allowed to remain in the U.S. Those determined to be without valid claims will be removed from the U.S. to their country of nationality or citizenship.“DHS is working closely with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review to streamline the process and conclude removal proceedings as expeditiously as possible.”The new policy, which has been dubbed “Remain in Mexico” by administration officials and critics alike, will not apply to children traveling alone, known as unaccompanied minors, or to asylum-seekers from Mexico.A senior official with Customs and Border Protection told NPR he expects the new policy will be met with a swift legal challenge.Immigrant and asylum advocates were quick to denounce the policy change.“Forcing families seeking asylum to remain in dangerous conditions in Mexico spits in the face of the values at the core of our country’s identity,” said Jess Morales Rocketto, chair of Families Belong Together, a coalition of 250 groups opposing the administration’s immigration policies. “The reality of this plan is suffering. These children and families will be left unsafe, without food or shelter, in violation of their human rights.”Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit https://www.npr.org. Sharelast_img read more

first_img “Fail fast” is a well-known phrase in the startup scene. The spirit of failing fast is getting to market with a minimum viable product and then rapidly iterating toward success. Failing fast acknowledges that entrepreneurs are unlikely to design a successful end-state solution before testing it with real customers and real consequences. This is the “ready, fire, aim” approach. Or, if the blowback is big enough, it’s the “ready, fire, pivot” approach.Consider this quote from Reid Hoffman, CEO of LinkedIn: “If you’re not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.”Related: Ready or Not, It’s Time to Embrace AIThe opposite of failing fast is a “waterfall” approach to software development, where a significant amount of time is invested upfront — requirements analysis, design and scenario planning — before the software is ever tested with real customers.When it comes to the emerging potential of artificial intelligence, I believe failing fast is a recipe for disaster.Artificial intelligence is here to stay.Many different types of artificially intelligent software surround us. Most AI has minimal authority today. For instance, Amazon’s software recommends things you might like to buy, but it doesn’t actually purchase those things on your behalf — yet. Spotify’s software makes a decision to create a playlist for you, but if a song doesn’t suit your tastes, the consequences are benign. Google’s software decides which websites are most relevant for your search terms but doesn’t decide which website you will visit. In all of these cases, failing fast is okay. Usage leads to more data, which leads to improvements in the algorithms.But intelligence software is beginning to make independent decisions that represent much higher risk. The risk of failure is too great to take lightly, because the consequences can be irreversible or ubiquitous.We wouldn’t want NASA to fail fast. A single Space Shuttle launch costs $450 million and places human lives in jeopardy.The risks of AI are increasing.Imagine this: What if we exposed 100+ million people to intelligent software that decided which news they read, and we later discovered the news may have been misleading or even fake and resulted in influencing the election for the President of the United States of America? Who would be held responsible?Related: 5 Ways in Which Digital and Artificial Intelligence are Changing Work DynamicsIt sounds far-fetched, but media reports indicate Russian influence reached 126 million people through Facebook alone. The stakes are getting higher, and we don’t know whom to hold accountable. I am fearful the companies spearheading advancements in AI aren’t cognizant of the responsibility. Failing fast shouldn’t be an acceptable excuse for unintended outcomes.If you’re not convinced, imagine these scenarios as a by-product of a fail fast mindset:What if your entire retirement savings evaporated overnight due to artificial intelligence? Here’s how it could happen. In the near future, millions of Americans will use intelligent software to invest billions of dollars in retirement savings. The software will decide where to invest the money. When the market experiences a massive correction, as it does occasionally, the software will need to react quickly to re-distribute your money. This could lead to an investment that bottoms out in minutes and your funds disappear. Is anyone responsible?What if your friend were killed in an automobile accident due to artificial intelligence? Here’s how it could happen. In the near future, millions of Americans will purchase driverless automobiles controlled by intelligent software. The software will decide the fate of many Americans. Will the artificial intelligence choose to hit a pedestrian that accidentally steps into the street or steer the vehicle off the road? These are split-second decisions with real-world consequences. If the decision is fatal, is anyone responsible?What if your daughter or son suffered from depression due to artificial intelligence? Here’s how it could happen. In the near future, millions of kids will have an artificial best friend. It will be sort of like an invisible friend. It will be a companion named Siri or Alexa or something else that talks and behaves like a confidant. We’ll introduce this friend to our children because it will be friendly, smart and caring. It might even replace a babysitter. However, if your daughter or son spends all their discretionary time with this artificial friend and years later can’t sustain meaningful relationships in the real world, is anyone responsible?In some cases, the consequences can’t be undone.Responsible approach to AI.The counter-argument is that humans already cause these tragedies. Humans spread fake news. Humans lose money in the stock market. Humans kill one another with automobiles. Humans get depressed.Related: Life Coaching Guru Tony Robbins Tells Us Why He;s Investing in an AI CompanyThe difference is that humans are individual cases. The risk with AI that replaces or competes with human intelligence is that it can be applied at scale simultaneously. The scope and reach of AI is both massive and instantaneous. It’s fundamentally introducing higher risk. While one driver who makes an error is truly unfortunate, one driver that makes the same error for millions of people should be unacceptable.A more responsible approach to AI is needed. Our mindset should shift toward risk prevention, security planning and simulation testing. While this defies the modern ethos of the tech industry, we have a responsibility to prevent the majority of unlikely and unwanted outcomes before they occur. The good news is that with the right mindset, we can prevent the scenarios above from becoming true.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.
