Watch for the word ‘half’ in Hispanic consumer studies

first_img 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr As the child of Mexican immigrants, I grew up in a household that was unique in many ways from those of my friends and peers. One of the differences was that my parents paid bills, saved money and accessed credit outside the traditional financial system. Hindsight being what it is, I can now see how much of an influence those financial choices had on my eventual career path.Although it came with challenges, my non-traditional American childhood absolutely empowered me. Today, I feel so fortunate to be living out my passion – introducing more Hispanic consumers to the life-changing benefits of becoming a credit union member.What’s equally exciting to me is introducing more organizations to benefits of serving Hispanic consumers. As I travel the country, talking with credit unions, colleges and other consumer-centric organizations, I’m learning so much about how perceptions continue to shape reality.One of the perceptions that Coopera colleagues and I are working hard to reshape is this idea the Hispanic market is homogenous. In fact, there are many nuances to the culture. Let’s take a look at a few… continue reading »last_img read more

Indonesia blames two more deaths on avian flu

first_imgSep 26, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Indonesian officials have blamed two more deaths on H5N1 avian influenza, bringing the country’s reported avian flu toll to six, although the cases have not yet been confirmed by an international reference laboratory.A 27-year-old woman who died today and a 5-year-old girl who died last week had the virus, according to officials quoted by the Associated Press (AP) and Agence France-Presse.In addition, Indonesian officials reported that several other people have tested positive for the virus, but they gave no details on those cases.The 27-year-old woman was hospitalized Sep 22 and died early today at the Jakarta hospital designated for possible avian flu cases, hospital spokesman Dr. Sardikin Giriputro told the AP. He said blood and saliva tests confirmed her infection, but samples were sent to a Hong Kong laboratory for further confirmation. AFP listed her name as Karwati.According to a Reuters report, Giriputro said it was unclear how the woman caught the virus, but 15 chickens in her household had died of unknown causes.A blood sample from the 5-year-old girl, named Riska, tested positive for the virus, although a saliva test was negative, said I Nyoman Kandun, the health ministry’s top infectious disease official, as quoted by AFP today. He said the ministry had classified her case as an avian flu death despite the mixed test results. Samples from the girl, who died Sep 21, have been sent to Hong Kong for further testing.A Reuters report today said a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test on the girl was negative, but the story didn’t explain who conducted that test.Previous deaths blamed on H5N1 avian flu in Indonesia include those of a 38-year-old man and his two young daughters in July and a 37-year-old woman who died Sep 10. In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Sep 22 that an 8-year-old boy hospitalized in Jakarta had the virus. (The WHO has said the test results for the 38-year-old man’s daughters did not meet the criteria for H5N1, but the Indonesian government regards their cases as confirmed.)Yesterday AFP quoted Giriputro as saying that five hospital patients in Jakarta had tested positive for avian flu while five others had tested negative. But the story gave no details on the cases.The AP said today that at least 34 people in Indonesia were hospitalized with possible avian flu symptoms. However, Health Minister Siti Fadila Separi said the situation remained under control and the virus did not appear to be spreading from person to person.Indonesia to receive oseltamivirThe Indonesian government announced today that 400,000 tablets of the antiviral drug oseltamivir (Tamiflu), enough to treat 40,000 people, were being donated to the country this week, the AP reported. Supari, the health minister, said donor countries and agencies were providing the drug to help Indonesia fight avian flu, but gave no details.The AP said the Australian government pledged today to give Indonesia enough antiviral medication to treat 40,000 people, but it was not immediately clear if the donation announced by Indonesia included the Australian contribution.FAO says control strategy underfundedIn other news, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) warned today, “The global strategy for the control of avian influenza in animals remains largely under-funded despite contributions pledged by some donors.”A strategy developed by the FAO and other agencies last May is expected to cost over $100 million over the next 3 years, the FAO said. So far, donor countries have pledged about $16.5 million. That includes $6 million each from Germany and the United States, $4 million from Switzerland, and $0.5 million from Japan.”It makes sense to stockpile antiviral drugs to protect humans against a potential avian influenza pandemic, but at the same time we have to contain the virus at source, in animals, to reduce the risk to people,” said Joseph Domenech, the FAO’s chief veterinary officer.The support pledged so far “is excellent, but it marks only a starting point and unless it translates into further financial funding to support affected countries, the cycle of bird flu infection that will occur in poultry this winter will not be stopped,” Domenech said.The statement said there is a “small window of opportunity” to vaccinate poultry before winter. Domenech said Vietnam, in particular, needs $10 million to complete its current nationwide poultry vaccination program, upgrade lab facilities, and conduct follow-up surveillance.The FAO also said countries along bird migration routes should set up surveillance programs and will need money to do that.”India and Bangladesh, Central Europe, the Middle East and parts of Africa should develop national prevention, early detection and rapid response plans,” the agency said. Domenech said those efforts would cost about $50 million for the next 3 years.FAO concerned about IndonesiaLast week, the FAO voiced concern about the spread of avian flu in Indonesia and called on the government to step up its efforts to control the virus.”Avian influenza has become endemic in Indonesia and it is continuing to spread,” Domenech said in the FAO’s Sept 22 statement. “In view of the worrying situation, it is necessary for the government to improve its virus control policies and strategies.”The agency said veterinary and civil authorities should be provided with the full authority to enforce disease-control measures.See also:Sep 26 FAO statement 22 FAO statement read more

Twitter conceals Trump tweet, ramping up dispute

first_imgHours later, the micro-messaging platform hid the tweet behind a message that said it “violates our policies regarding the glorification of violence based on the historical context of the last line, its connection to violence, and the risk it could inspire similar actions today.””As is standard with this notice, engagements with the Tweet will be limited. People will be able to Retweet with Comment, but will not be able to Like, Reply or Retweet it.” Users could still click through and view the full unedited tweet.Trump, who has more than 80 million followers on Twitter, lashed out at the platform on Thursday, signing an executive order seeking to strip social media giants of legal immunity for content on their platforms.  Twitter concealed one of Donald Trump’s tweets on Friday for “glorifying violence,” ramping up a dispute with the US president who says social media companies censor conservative voices like his. In a move bound to infuriate one of the platform’s most followed users, Twitter said it was placing a “public interest notice” on a Trump tweet about violent protests in Minneapolis over the death of an unarmed black man at the hands of the police.In a late night tweet, Trump wrote: “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” The order calls on government regulators to evaluate if online platforms should be eligible for liability protection for content posted by their millions of users.The move, which was slammed by critics as a legally dubious act of political revenge, came after Twitter labelled two earlier Trump tweets — on the increasingly contentious topic of mail-in voting — as misleading.If enforced, the action would upend decades of precedent and treat internet platforms as “publishers” potentially liable for user-generated content.Trump told reporters at the White House he acted because big tech firms “have had unchecked power to censor, restrict, edit, shape, hide, alter any form of communication between private citizens or large public audiences.””We can’t let this continue to happen,” Trump said.’President’s speech police’ Critics said however Trump has no authority to regulate private internet operators or change the law, known as Section 230, which backers say has allowed online platforms like Facebook and Twitter to flourish.The American Civil Liberties Union called Trump’s order “a blatant and unconstitutional threat to punish social media companies that displease the president.”Eric Goldman, director of the High-Tech Law Institute at Santa Clara University, said the order was “more about political theater than about changing the law.”The order “is not legally supportable — it flies in the face of more than 900 court decisions,” Goldman said.The White House seeks to sidestep the provisions giving internet firms immunity by treating them as publishers operating in part of a “public square.””Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube wield immense, if not unprecedented, power to shape the interpretation of public events; to censor, delete, or disappear information; and to control what people see or do not see,” the executive order said.While the Trump order would not prevent platforms from moderating content, it could open them up to a flood of lawsuits from anyone who claims to be harmed by content posted online.Critics said the action represents a dangerous effort by the government to regulate online speech.”Social media can be frustrating. But an Executive Order that would turn the FCC into the President’s speech police is not the answer,” said Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democratic member of Federal Communications Commission, one of the agencies tasked with enforcing the executive order.Matt Schruers, president of the Computer & Communications Industry Association, a trade group, warned that “retaliation against the private sector for fact-checking leadership is what we expect from foreign autocracies, not the United States.”Wading into quagmire Internet firms have denied Trump’s claims of bias, and point to his massive social media following. But the president’s move plays into his narrative ahead of his difficult November reelection battle that liberal forces are trying to censor Republicans.A wider debate has long been underway on the power that social media companies wield and what responsibility they bear for posts that are misleading or hurtful.Internet services like Twitter and Facebook have been struggling to root out misinformation, while at the same time keeping their platforms open to users.After long resisting calls to censure Trump over his frequent factually inaccurate posts, Twitter on Tuesday flagged the president for the first time for making false claims.Trump had tweeted — without any evidence — that more mail-in voting would lead to what he called a “Rigged Election” this November.Topics :last_img read more

Arnold admires German fan approach

first_img Press Association Staggering Champions League victories for Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in midweek and the prospect of an all-German final at Wembley on May 25 have shone a light on how differently the Bundesliga operates compared to England. With cheaper ticket prices, safe standing, match tickets affording free rail travel, a 10 per cent allocation to visiting supporters and, crucially, a competition run at a profit, Germany is viewed as a utopia for football fans, and Arnold said: “I think some of the work they do on fan communication and fan consultation are areas that we can learn from.” There are issues Arnold takes exception to – but better fan consultation is not amongst them. Arnold’s words are important because once chief executive David Gill stands down at the end of June, he will take over responsibilities for running the day-to-day Old Trafford operation as group managing director, with London-based Ed Woodward dealing with team affairs. It holds out hope for more interaction between the club and supporters, beyond the current Fans’ Forum initiative, which some believe to be ineffective anyway. Not that United are set to slash ticket prices to German levels any time soon given the vast scale of their support, although they have recently announced a price freeze on season tickets, a blow to revenues that will be cushioned somewhat by a massive new TV deal and the continuing expansion of their sponsorship portfolio. Contracts with leading Japanese social gaming company gloops and Vietnamese bank BIDV have been announced in the last 48 hours. Yet United’s status as football’s number one commercial enterprise took a blow earlier this year, when Bayern released figures that showed the German champions’ commercial income to be £160million, dwarfing the Red Devils’ £117.6million. “Bayern Munich are a very successful club and very well run,” said Arnold. “But the way they reported their numbers meant their corporate hospitality sales are included in their commercial figures. It means on a like-for-like basis we are significantly larger on our commercial business.” Despite Gill’s impending departure, United are set on a long-term course that will not alter and continued success on the pitch, whilst clearly desirable, has only minimal effect in the short-term. This will be seen when United eventually come to agreeing a new kit manufacturing deal given the present one, with Nike, which nets the club a basic £23.5million a year, runs out in 2015. center_img Manchester United commercial director Richard Arnold has admitted the Premier League champions can learn from their German counterparts about how they communicate with supporters.last_img read more

Swans heap more misery on Magpies

first_img The Magpies, who started the day just seven points clear of the relegation zone, went into first-half stoppage time leading through Ayoze Perez’s 20th-minute strike, but surrendered their advantage before they returned to the dressing room when striker Nelson Oliveira took advantage of weak defending to head home, and capitulated within five minutes of the restart as Gylfi Sigurdsson gave the visitors the lead. Jack Cork put the Swans further ahead 19 minutes from time and, although Siem de Jong marked his return from an eight-month injury nightmare with an 88th-minute goal, he could not prevent his side from slipping to a 3-2 loss. Cabella turned the ball into the path of Riviere, who out-paced midfielder Cork before crossing with the outside of his right foot. Defender Jordi Amat got the the ball first, but could only serve it up perfectly for Perez to fire into the empty net for his first goal since December 28. Federico Fernandez might have levelled with four minutes, but headed straight at goalkeeper Tim Krul from another Sigurdsson corner, and both Rangel and Sigurdsson tested the Dutchman from distance. But he was finally beaten in stoppage time, and in predictable fashion as loan signing Oliveira was allowed to run onto a Sigurdsson corner and send a downward header into the turf and up into the roof of the net. Newcastle resumed in positive fashion with Ryan Taylor curling a 48th-minute free-kick just wide, but they fell behind just two minutes later when Montero picked out Sigurdsson’s run into the box with a perfect pass and he finished off via the foot of the post. Swansea were brimming with confidence and Krul had to sprint from his line to hack away Sigurdsson’s 56th-minute through-ball marginally before Oliveira got to it, and Mike Williamson only just managed to hold off the striker after he broke through on the hour. The home side’s response was distinctly tepid, and their day was done 19 minutes from time when Oliveira’s deflected cross arrived at Cork’s feet, and he could not miss. Perez might have reduced the deficit six minutes later. Substitute De Jong did pull one back from Colback’s cross with two minutes remaining, but it proved too little, too late. John Carver’s problems took a turn for the worse as Swansea condemned Newcastle to an unwanted club record seventh successive Barclays Premier League defeat. There were protests by home fans among a crowd of 46,884 – the official attendance was lower than last Sunday’s against Tottenham when supporters were urged to stay away – both before and during the game, with owner Mike Ashley the target of pre-arranged action in the 34th minute, drawing attention to the £34million the club banked during the last financial year. Swansea headed back to South Wales having cemented their place in the top half of the table, but the Magpies face an anxious few weeks after losing a seventh league game on the trot for the first time since 1977 and failing to ease their fears of being dragged into a survival fight. Head coach Carver admitted after last weekend’s 3-1 home defeat by Spurs that he would set out to win ugly against the Swans, and, for 47 minutes, he would have been reasonably happy. With Emmanuel Riviere having been handed a rare start in support of Perez, who has spent much of his first season in English football playing as a lone and isolated striker, the home team were initially far more progressive than they have been in recent weeks. Remy Cabella saw plenty of possession in midfield with Jack Colback and Jonas Gutierrez – re-called to the starting line-up after resolving his differences with Carver – prompting, and full-backs Daryl Janmaat and Vurnon Anita were prominent too. It was Anita who provided the 13th-minute cross from which Perez headed wide at the far post, although that was the signal for the visitors to increase their tempo, and they might have taken the lead twice within seconds. First central defender Ashley Williams headed wastefully wide from a Sigurdsson corner, and then midfielder Jefferson Montero could not climb high enough to direct Angel Rangel’s cross at goal. But when the opening goal arrived on the half-hour, it did so at the other end. Press Associationlast_img read more

MBB : Jardine’s mistakes prove costly in frustrating loss to Golden Eagles

first_imgCLEVELAND — The brash, bumptious attitude was missing. For 34 games this season — 27 wins, seven losses — it was there in front of Scoop Jardine’s locker. Win or lose, always the same display.Sunday, though, was different. Sunday, Jardine sat slumped in front of his locker in a chair. He spoke in a low, muted voice instead of the usual upbeat, animated tone. He had to reflect, not look ahead.‘Just sucks to lose,’ Jardine said. ‘There’s just so much you can say right now. Especially when we had the game won. It’s tough.’In a game full of Syracuse mistakes, point guard Jardine made a select few that proved to be key and helped cost his team a third consecutive trip to the Sweet 16. In SU’s 66-62 season-ending loss to Marquette in the third round of the NCAA Tournament, Jardine finished with just six points and six assists in 36 minutes.More glaring, though, were the three turnovers and the poor shooting night. He shot 2-of-8 from the field, including just 1-of-5 from beyond the 3-point line. And one decision in particular — his decision to shoot a perhaps rushed 3-pointer the possession after Marquette’s Darius Johnson-Odom hit the eventual game-winner — had him questioning his decisions.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘Shot right there that I usually take — and I usually make,’ Jardine said. ‘But at that time, I probably should have tried to get to the rim.’In the first half, Jardine contributed to the Orange’s turnover-happy play after its quick 7-0 start. He forced passes that led to two consecutive giveaways. And in the second, SU’s floor general continued to make the kind of plays that made head coach Jim Boeheim issue his trademark glare from the bench.Midway through the second half, Jardine got the ball at the top of the key on the left side. Driving in, he tiptoed near the out-of-bounds line with nowhere to go. He flailed a pass up in the air for C.J. Fair, but Junior Cadougan of Marquette looked more like the intended target. Cadougan intercepted the pass and went back and forth with Jae Crowder down the court, and Crowder eventually found him underneath for a layup and foul. The free throw tied the game at 46-46.Boeheim stood up on the SU sidelines, hands on his hips.‘Our offense was fine,’ Boeheim said. ‘Except for the turnovers. The turnovers ended up being the difference in the basketball game.’Jardine was a part of the turnover that eventually led to Johnson-Odom’s second huge 3-pointer against the Orange this season, when Dion Waiters’ pass sailed and he dragged his foot backcourt.But what had Jardine and his teammates questioning him the most was his final decision that doomed Syracuse — his final 3-point attempt. Momentum gone but still with plenty of time, Syracuse had possession. Twenty-six seconds to make up a three-point deficit.‘We could have came down and got a better play,’ Waiters said. ‘But at the end of theday, it’s all adrenaline.’It was the same adrenaline Jardine felt when he made two 3s in the final minute of SU’s eventual Big East tournament loss to Connecticut. Those sent the game into overtime.This time, he had the same look as he raced down the court. He was impatient. But he was going to be the hero again.He came off a screen at the top of the key. Crowder backed off the slightest bit. Jardine saw his chance. He pulled up and fired. Off the backboard and out.‘We could have probably got a better shot off a set,’ SU forward Kris Joseph said. ‘But he made the same two shots against UConn, so you can’t really blame him for taking a shot.’The shot banged wildly off the glass with barely any chance for an offensive rebound. Cadougan secured it in his grasp for Marquette. This rebound, he wouldn’t let get away.Jardine raced again — this time helplessly — to the ball and fouled Cadougan with the game firmly in the Golden Eagles’ grasp as well.Through it all — sullen and surly in his chair— he was defiant. Marquette, he reiterated, was not the better team Sunday. Until the final minutes when, he admitted, the Golden Eagles made plays. Plays that defined both sides and eventually defined the outcome.‘We clearly were the better team,’ Jardine said. ‘They just made the better plays down the stretch to win the game.’ Published on March 20, 2011 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Bittersweet Senior Day for Badgers

first_imgKelsey Fenton / The Badger HeraldIt was a somber scene Sunday afternoon as the senior members of the Wisconsin softball team began to realize the inevitable end of their Badger careers, removing their name tags from the dugout lockers after the regular season finale at Goodman Diamond.Michigan State (24-24, 9-10 Big Ten) played the role of spoiler to a T, taking two of three games from No. 25 Wisconsin (39-11, 16-7) over the weekend, capping the series off with an 11-5 win over the Badgers in the second of two games Sunday.In her last home game for Wisconsin in front of a record-setting crowd, senior catcher/infielder Whitney Massey admited Sunday was emotional for her and the six other seniors.“There’s a lot of emotion,” Massey said. “I think for the seven of us, it’s kind of been a roller coaster for us these last four years, but it’s nice to know that we’re not done.”After being shut out in a 3-0 loss to Wisconsin in the first game of the doubleheader, the Michigan State bats came to life against senior lefthander Meghan McIntosh, scoring six runs in the first inning and chasing McIntosh off the mound after only one-third of an inning pitched.Taylor Paige-Stewart came in for relief of McIntosh in the first and went the rest of the way for UW, giving up five runs on five hits.“Tay did good,” UW pitching coach Tracie Adix said of Paige-Stewart’s relief appearance. “She came in, popped them up and kept them off balance. That’s really all we can ask from her, try to keep them contained so we can get some more runs.”Sunday marked Paige-Stewart’s only 11th appearance of the season in the circle. She now has a 2.28 ERA in 46 innings pitched.The Wisconsin offense did its best to pull off another comeback as it has been able to do all season, but the six first-inning runs by the Spartans proved to be too much for the Badgers to overcome. UW brought in just five runs in the 11-5 defeat.The silver lining came in the bottom of the fifth when Massey set the single-season record for home runs after the California native launched her 12th home run of the season to right field to score two and bring the deficit down to five.“She’s stepped it up,” Wisconsin head coach Yvette Healy said of Massey. “She’s catching for us and putting together some great games and she’s just tough. She’s fun and she’s going to be sorely missed.”The Badgers snagged their only win of the series against Michigan State in the early game of the twin bill on the back of an outstanding pitching performance from junior righthander Cassandra Darrah, who pitched seven scoreless innings for Wisconsin.The Michigan State hitters were making solid contact on Darrah’s pitches, but were only able to generate six hits off the Wisconsin defense, shutting out the Spartans en route to Darrah’s 23rd win.“Cass was ready to go and started mowing them down,” Adix said. “She was getting weak ground balls, pop-ups. She wasn’t trying to blow the ball by people. Cass just stuck to the game plan, kept them off balance and fielded her position well.”At the plate, it was junior rightfielder Mary Massei who started the game off with a bang on a lead-off no-doubter to left-center to give the Badgers the early 1-0 lead.Massei put a charge into another ball in the fifth inning off Michigan State’s ace Kelly Smith, notching her second home run of the day.“I was just seeing the ball well,” Massei said. “I knew that [Smith] went inside for strikes, so I backed off a little bit and just took hacks.”Wisconsin went on to win 3-0, giving Healy her 100th win with the program and UW its 39th win of the season.The series kicked off Saturday after Friday’s game was postponed due to poor weather. McIntosh got the nod for the Badgers but was unable to make it out of the second inning after giving up six runs, four earned, through 1 2/3 innings.Friday marked the second poor start for McIntosh who, until this weekend, had been having a career year sporting a microscopic 1.57 ERA coming into the series.“I think a lot of it sometimes has to do with the Senior Day,” Adix said of McIntosh’s struggles from the circle. “Some seniors will play well on Senior Day and some will feel just a little bit of nervousness. They think more about how it is the last time they are going to play on this field.”While coming away with just one win in the three-game series with the Spartans was not what the Badgers had in mind, Healy believes it will be a wake-up call for her team and help to prepare them for the Big Ten tournament, which is set to start next weekend.“I think it makes everybody a little aggravated and focused,” Healy said. “It’s better to have a weekend like this [happen] this weekend. Moving forward, there’s no room for error really; you have to play well or go home for the rest of the way out, so I think better now than later, and hopefully it keeps people hungry.”last_img read more

Nichushkin is also a fast skater who can win 1-on-1 battles and make creative plays on the fly. Equipped with a heavy shot, he’s able to shoot from anywhere with a power forward’s mentality, which helps him crash the net and get to the right areas.Nichushkin with the wheels! And a very nice goal.— NHL (@NHL) March 5, 2016Joining Colorado may just be the right opportunity. He’s gotten much better defensively over time, is able to better handle the puck and carry it up ice — it just needs to be seen on a consistent basis. Regardless of whether or not he can find his touch with the Avalanche, the team will be just fine; they have plenty of depth on the wing, and their 3.15 goals per game last season ranked 10th in the league.Ultimately, he’s a safe backup option — and may even win a spot in the lineup if he shows improvement in the preseason. The Avs have shown that they’ll take a chance on unproven, young wingers (Andre Burakovsky), and the kid has shown that he can play. A change of scenery may just be the answer, as seen before in the NHL, and there’s not really a downside to the deal. How he’ll stack up is a toss-up, but Colorado isn’t losing anything by signing a former first-rounder to a low-risk, inexpensive deal. NHL FREE AGENCY 2019: Tracker for all 31 teams’ RFAs, UFAsHis lackluster play, as well as inconsistency and lack of scoring since entering the organization, led Dallas to buy out the final year of his contract early in the offseason; however, the Avs see potential in the 2013 10th-overall pick and could benefit from his presence.”Valeri is a big, young winger who adds depth to our roster and brings competition to our training camp,” general manager Joe Sakic said in a team-issued press release. “He brings NHL experience to our team and we are excited to have him with our organization.”Once carrying the potential to become a first-line winger, Nichushkin has seen a decline in his play. After impressing with a solid 14 goals and 34-point performance in his rookie campaign, he suffered a hip injury the following year which held him to only eight games (one point). After that, he managed just nine more goals in the final year of his entry-level deal in 2015-16 before deciding to sign with the KHL’s CSKA Moscow.Overseas, he was able to register a combined total of 27 goals and 51 points in 86 games over the last two seasons, which included a 27-point campaign in 2017-18 topped off by a team-leading seven game-winning goals. However, none of that appeared to translate over to North America, where he struggled yet again and ultimately become a UFA.So what do the Avalanche get out of signing him? The Colorado Avalanche are taking a gamble on Valeri Nichushkin. They signed the 24-year-old winger to a one-year, one-way deal worth $850,000, the team announced Monday.Last season marked Nichushkin’s first NHL campaign with the Dallas Stars since 2015-16 (as a restricted free agent, he chose to sign overseas rather than return to the Stars). In 57 games, he failed to impress, going without a goal and putting up just 10 assists. He had a groin injury early on in the year and ultimately couldn’t live up to expectations or play any kind of top-6 role; he was scratched 16 times and appeared in just one postseason game.last_img read more

The Becerril invites all the Real’s subscribers to its stadium

first_img👋 Hello partners of the @Real society ✔️ We cannot bring the 34,119 members, but we can invite you to football. ✔️ Choose the day, visit our town and in the afternoon to football. ✔️ You just have to present the Real card at the box office. – CD.Becerril (@cd_becerril) February 17, 2020It is his response to one of the most mediatic gestures left by this Cup: the Royal Society’s invitation to each and every one of the inhabitants of Becerril de Campos (754) to a match at the Reale Arena (that of Valencia) with all expenses paid. This meeting will be held on Saturday, February 22 from 18:30. Juan Antonio Redondo, president of the Palentino club, explained what the invitation of the rival was: “Aperribay He told us to look for a weekend that would fit us well to go to San Sebastian to watch a Real match. They take care of everything, he told me. The players and managers pay us the bus, the entrance and even invite us to eat. And for the rest of the people who want to sign up they invite to the round trip and to the entrance to the game“.The modest Third Division club wanted to honor the love shown by the Royal Society, despite the fact that their income is exponentially lower. Thus, he has opted to invite any realistic subscriber to his stadium. They mediate, yes, about 350 kilometers and more than three hours by car between both locations. The Calf cannot pay for the trip, but invites his Mariano Haro. The new Copa del Rey has given the opportunity to the most modest clubs across the national scene to face the biggest. Ten teams from Regional played in the first round against rivals of the First Division, although none of them could hit the ground. Even so, some forged a brotherhood, which, months later, still exists. This is the case of the Becerril and the Royal Society, with crossed gifts that turned a knockout tie into more than just a match. The Becerril has announced in its social networks that it will invite each and every one of the subscribers of the Royal Society to the parties that they choose In the remainder of the season. In other words, any of the 34,119 followers with fertilizer at the Reale Arena may go to the Mariano Haro box office and withdraw your ticket for the meeting without mediating a single euro in the exchange. last_img read more

Ganta Breaks Ground for US$500K Multi-Purpose City Hall

first_imgMin Varney Sirleaf, maeks remarks after cutting the ribbon, symbolizing the ground-breaking for the Ganta City Hall project.Ganta City authorities in Nimba County on Saturday, May 4, 2019, broke ground to construct a multi-purpose city hall at the estimated cost of US$500,000.The project, according to Ganta City Mayor Amos N. Suah, will be completed in one year’s time to contain offices, guest rooms, conference halls, along with other modern facilities.“We will ensure that the building is completed in time so that our kids can have a place to celebrate any big event including Christmas,” the Mayor said.Construction work is already taking place as far as planting the pillars, to be followed by the first floor casting.In the wake of the construction work, the city authorities are soliciting funding from the residents, while at the same time, appealing to the government for support to meet up with the one year deadline of completion.The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by high profiled individuals headed by Internal Affairs Minister Varney Sirleaf and former Nimba Senator Hilary Gbomblee.Minister Sirleaf provided US$10,000 as President George Weah’s initial contribution to the construction and pledged government’s support to complete the project.“We are happy for this project, because it will host most of our workshops to cut down some of the expenses on renting private places for workshops,” he said.The Internal Affairs Minister praised Mayor Suah and his officials for undertaking such a huge project, but called on them to be accountable to every cent they will collect from the residents so as to get their continuous full support.With that caution, Mayor Suah promised to be very transparent with the citizens concerning the use of the money raised for the project. He said a committee will be set up to manage every cent collected, and give a periodic account to the public regarding expenditures.“We are calling on all the citizens, especially those residing in Ganta, to make meaningful contribution to speed up with the project,” Suah said. Ganta is one of the growing cities in Liberia. Yet the lack of city hall, pipe-borne water and access to the existing streets remain obstacles to the speedy development of the city.James V.

Parika family robbed by knife-wielding bandit

first_imgA Parika, East Bank Essequibo (EBE) family were in the wee hours of Tuesday morning attacked in their home by a knife-wielding bandit, who carted off with a sum of cash and jewellery.The Singh family was robbed at about 03:00h. Reports are the family were awakened by a noise emanating from a section of the lower flat of their two-storey home.According to 45-year-old Babita Singh, she was asleep when she heard a noise and got out of bed to investigate. She told Guyana Times that as she was about to exit her bedroom, which is located on the lower flat, she was attacked by a lone bandit.The woman recounted that frightened, she screamed for her husband, but had a knife placed to her neck by the perpetrator.As her husband ran to her rescue, the woman relayed that he was told to hand over valuables or his wife would be killed.“The man had a mask on, he hold me up and he press the knife to my neck so my husband couldn’t have done anything because he tell he if he aint listen that he gone kill me,” the woman related.Singh told this publication that scared, her husband handed over a sum of cash and jewellery to the man who quickly fled through a window.“After he run out, my husband run out behind he to see where he going but me holler and call he back inside because I didn’t want he get hurt and then we went to check on the kids that were asleep upstairs,” the woman recalled.The family then sounded an alarm alerting neighbours to the incident and the Police were notified.Singh was later taken to the hospital where she was treated for a wound which she sustained to her neck.

Police awaiting DPP’s advice before instituting charges

first_imgTuschen robberyThe Police is awaiting advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) before moving forward with charges in connection with Friday’s night robbery on the Five Star Chinese Restaurant, Tuschen New Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo (EBE).Mark Prince who was shot and killedOne bandit was killed during the robbery.When contacted on Tuesday, Region Three (Essequibo Islands- West Demerara) Police Commander Simon McBean said that three persons remained in custody even as Police were hunting a female who was also involved in the robbery.“We are still looking for the female who have, based on our evidence, is outstanding. We don’t have a name; we are searching based on description,” McBean stated.The regional commander further added that the Police have sought legal advice on the matter.“From yesterday (Tuesday) we would have still had the three persons arrested – one hospitalised, two in Police custody. We are preparing to seek advice in the matter,” he explained.The suspects in custody are a Police Constable attached to the Special Branch at Eve Leary, Georgetown; a 20-year-old Herstelling, East Bank Demerara (EBD) resident and a Buxton, East Coast Demerara (ECD) resident.Following the robbery, Mark Prince, called “Fine Man”, was shot dead.Speaking with Guyana Times, Prince’s reputed wife, Onika Thompson claimed that she was unaware that her partner had brushes with the law and was involved in the robbery.However, even as she claimed no knowledge of her partner’s criminal activities, in 2016, Police had issued a wanted bulletin for him. In 2017, Prince was charged jointly with Regan Singh, for trailing a businessman from a city bank and robbing him. In 2018, Prince was among six men who were nabbed at a Police roadblock on the Grove Public Road, EBD. The men, while on bail for various criminal offences, had attempted to commit armed robbery on poultry farmer Michael Chang Yuen.On Friday, Prince was among the bandits who pounced on Guang Hong Wang, 43, proprietor of the Five Star Chinese Restaurant and her husband who operate the food establishment in the lower flat of their premises. A customer, Navindra Lakahalall, 37, of Zeelugt New Housing, Scheme, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), was also robbed when the bandits invaded the premises. Reports are Lakahalall was in the restaurant when one of the male suspects and a female entered and purchased two beverages. Police reports stated that as soon as they consumed the beverages, they ordered a case of beer and in the process of Wang delivering the same, the male suspect whipped out a handgun and relieved her of two cellphones and an undisclosed sum of cash.He then turned his attention to Lakahalall, and relieved him of one silver chain and an undisclosed sum of cash. At the height of the robbery, the three other suspects entered.However, a neighbour, who is a licensed firearm holder, heard the commotion and immediately went to investigate and was attacked by the armed suspect and another with a cutlass. He then discharged several rounds in their direction after which the suspects fled the premises in a motor car with license plate PTT 8606 that had been parked nearby, leaving their accomplice Prince, who had been shot, at the scene.The Police were contacted and the vehicle was intercepted at a roadblock on the public road in front of the Den Amstel Police Station.At the time, the car had three occupants – one was in the back seat with what appeared to be a gunshot wound. He was questioned, arrested, and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital.An unlicensed pistol with an empty magazine was found in the vehicle along with an undisclosed sum of cash and cellular phones.It was later revealed that Prince who had been left behind with a gunshot wound to the neck died on the spot. A cutlass was in his right hand and a haversack was on his back.His body was taken to the Leonora Cottage Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Some $130,000 was found in his possession.last_img read more

Ghana football chief resigns after corruption suspension

first_img0Shares0000Kwesi Nyantakyi accused “scammers” of tricking him after stepping down as Ghanaian Football Association president © AFP/File / Carl DE SOUZAACCRA, Ghana, Jun 8 – Ghanian Football Association (GFA) president Kwesi Nyantakyi resigned on Friday just hours after world football governing body FIFA hit him with a 90-day suspension over corruption claims.In a statement carried on the GFA website, Nyantakyi apologised “unreservedly” for “a series of errors of indiscretion” after FIFA launched an ethics investigation into his activities. Nyantakyi was accused in an explosive documentary called ‘Number 12’, aired on Wednesday by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, of soliciting bribes amounting to several million dollars.The football chief said “scammers” had “deceived me into thinking they were genuine persons interested in investing in our country”.In the documentary he was accused of requesting $11 million (9.3 million euros) from reporters posing as investors to secure government contracts.He also allegedly tried to profit personally from a $5 million-a-year, five-year sponsorship deal with the GFA.Hidden camera footage also purportedly showed referees taking as little as $100 each to rig matches.Ghana’s government on Thursday said the documentary had exposed “gross malfunctioning… characterised by widespread fraud, corruption and bribery” at the GFA.Ghana’s information minister Mustapha Abdul-Hamid said the government would dissolve the GFA because of the “widespread nature of the apparent rot”.FIFA responded earlier on Friday by banning Nyantakyi from “all football-related activity” for 90 days pending an investigation with a possible further suspension of up to 45 days.Football is Ghana’s national sport and the revelations have sent shockwaves through the country, just under a week before the start of the World Cup finals in Russia, for which they failed to qualify.Before the last World Cup in Brazil in 2014, Nyantakyi was accused of signing a $170,000-deal for Ghana to play in a friendly organised by match fixers. He denied the accusations.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Barcelona move to tie down starlet amid Arsenal interest

first_img1 Munir El Haddadi Barcelona are set to offer a new contract to wonderkid Munir El Haddadi to ward off Premier League interest.The youngster scored on his debut for the club against Elche on Sunday and is tipped to be the next superstar to emerge from Barca’s fabled ‘La Masia’ academy.Munir signed a new deal in January but this was reported to have a release clause of under £10m.That alerted a number of clubs to his availability, including Arsenal, and Barca have reacted swiftly, with El Mundo Deportivo reporting that sporting director Andoni Zubizaretta telling the 18-year-old they will offer him a substantial pay-rise.His release clause will then automatically be raised to £27.82m, a sum which should ensure he continues to develop at the Nou Camp rather than be lured elsewhere.last_img read more

Napoli capitalise on Inter Milan’s slip to move top

first_img“It’s very pleasing to score 115 goals as a midfielder. That’s a good number,” Slovakian international Hamsik told Sky Sport Italia.Napoli’s win came after a 1-0 home defeat by Juventus a fortnight ago that saw them relinquish top spot to Inter and a poor goalless draw with Fiorentina last week that saw them fail to take advantage of Inter’s own 0-0 draw at Juve.“We are really happy with the performance,” added Hamsik.“I don’t know if it’s an advantage to be top of the table, but it can help us remember how strong we are.”The loss for Luciano Spalletti’s team also gives third-placed Juventus, themselves four points behind Napoli, the opportunity to leapfrog their old rivals Inter at Bologna on Sunday.“We will probably need of something (in the winter transfer window) if we’re going to make that step forward,” admitted Spalletti.Fourth-placed Roma moved level on points with Juve as Argentinian centre-back Federico Fazio’s 94th-minute goal grabbed a 1-0 win over Cagliari, after Diego Perotti had earlier missed a penalty.The capital club are well in the title race, just four points adrift of Napoli with a game in hand, as they bid for a first Scudetto since 2001.– Koulibaly strikes early –Kalidou Koulibaly sent Napoli on their way in the fourth minute when he headed home Allan’s flick-on from a corner, and the away side looked out of sight with just 25 minutes gone when Piotr Zielinski collected Jorginho’s precise through ball and slotted home their second.Hamsik effectively ended the match as a contest with 30 minutes gone when he swept home Dries Merten’s pass first time past Salvatore Sirigu, scoring his first goal since the start of October and finally equalling Maradona’s record.Torino striker Andrea Belotti pulled one back in the 63rd minute, ending an eight-game goal drought that stretched back nearly two months, but that was as good as it got for the hosts.“My players knew what Inter had done and that can either help or hinder you,” said Napoli coach Sarri.“They can give you the hunger to retake the top spot, but can also pile extra pressure on. Today the lads did well to make something positive from the result at the San Siro.”Inter looked like they were set to maintain their unbeaten record and momentarily extend their lead at the top when Mauro Icardi levelled the scores with his 18th goal of the season, a smart volley just 71 seconds after Kevin Lasagna’s 14th-minute opener.But despite dominating, the hosts could not find the breakthrough, and were punished just after the hour mark.Inter defender Davide Santon compounded a poor display by handballing Silvan Widmer’s cross, and after referee Maurizio Mariani consulted the video assistant referee to check that the ball had not gone out before the Udinese right-back reached the ball, he awarded the penalty from which Rodrigo De Paul gave the away side the lead.Inter continued to push and almost levelled in the 68th minute when Milan Skriniar thumped Antonio Candreva’s cross off the bar, but were punished when Antonin Barak finished a lightning break with 13 minutes left to sink the home side.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Udinese’s players celebrate after their Serie A victory over Inter Milan at the San Siro stadium in Milan © AFP / ALBERTO PIZZOLIMilan, Italy, Dec 16 – Marek Hamsik equalled Diego Maradona’s record as Napoli’s all-time top goalscorer as they took advantage of Inter Milan’s first defeat of the season and moved top of Serie A with a 3-1 win at Torino on Saturday.Inter went down 3-1 to Udinese at the San Siro earlier in the day and Hamsik, who now has 115 Napoli goals in all competitions, led the way as Maurizio Sarri’s side made the most of Inter’s loss with a three-goal blitz in the first half-hour that saw off Torino and moved them top on 42 points, two ahead of Inter, who drop back to second.last_img read more

Last-gasp Biraghi goal gives Mancini first competitive win

first_img0Shares0000Defender Cristiano Biraghi (L) scored his first goal for Italy. © AFP / Janek SKARZYNSKICHORZOW, Poland, Oct 15 – Cristiano Biraghi snatched a late victory to give new Italy coach Roberto Mancini his first competitive victory and keep the Azzurri’s Nations League hopes alive with a 1-0 win over Poland in their League A Group 3 clash in Chorzow on Sunday.Defender Biraghi, 26, slid in the winner two minutes into injury time for his first goal for Italy in a game his team had dominated. The defeat ensured Poland were relegated to League B. It gives Mancini his first competitive victory since taking over as Italy coach last May, after the four-time world champions failure to qualify for the World Cup.“A new cycle has already begun,” said Mancini“We dominated the game, we had to score the first goal, it would have been unfair to finish 0-0.“All the lads are trying to do their best. It’s a good win in a very good game.”Fiorentina defender Biraghi made the sign ’13’ with his hands when he scored, as he dedicated his first goal to former Italy and Fiorentina captain Davide Astori who died of a heart attack last March.“I owe everything to him. I’m here thanks to Davide who was a mentor for me,” said Biraghi, who was called up to Italy for the first time last month at the age of 26.European champions Portugal lead the three-team group with six points from two games with Italy on four points after three games with Poland relegated to League B with one point.Mancini stuck with the same eleven he started with in last Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against the Ukraine with Federico Bernardeschi, Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Chiesa leading the attack.Nicolo Barella, 21, was chosen to start over Lorenzo Pellegrini in midfield after making his international debut in Genoa.Poland opted for the strike partnership of Robert Lewandowski and Arkadiusz Milik over Genoa forward Krzysztof Piatek, who has scored 14 goals in ten competitive games for club and country.Italy had the best of the first half but once again demonstrated their difficulty finishing off.Jorginho rattled the bar within the first minute, with Federico Chiesa also hitting the woodwork after half an hour in the Silesian Stadium.Poland could thank Wojciech Szczesny for keeping them in the game with the under-pressure goalkeeper denying Alessandro Florenzi, Jorginho, Federico Bernardeschi and Juventus teammate Giorgio Chiellini in the first half.Italy had a goal disallowed after 65 minutes following a well-worked pass between Bernardeschi and Marco Verratti with Insigne offside in the box.Poland also had a couple of chances in the second half with Kamil Grosicki denied by Gianluigi Donnarumma, with Arkadiusz Milik curling over.– ‘Never say die attitude’ –Roberto Mancini got his first competitive win as Italy coach. © AFP / Marco BERTORELLOJust when it looked as if both sides would settle for a draw, off the last corner, substitute Kevin Lasagna, who made his international debut, steered in for the Biraghi to finish off.“It had looked as if the match was jinxed,” said Biraghi.“The minutes were going by and the ball wouldn’t go in.“When you create a lot and the ball doesn’t go in you start to get nervous, even risk losing.“Instead we stayed calm and believed until the end. This victory is thanks to the group’s never say die attitude.”The result ensures Italy stayed in the tier ahead of December’s Euro 2020 qualifying draw.Italy next host Portugal on November 17 with Poland playing in Portugal three days later.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Man United plotting move for £50m wonderkid, but he prefers Liverpool

first_imgManchester United are plotting a £50 million move for Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon, but the player reportedly would prefer a move to Liverpool.According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Chelsea are all tracking the burgeoning star, but it is United who will make a £50 million move for him this summer.The 18-year-old enjoyed an incredible season as he helped the Cottagers back to the Premier League and the club have maintained he is not for sale.However, should a move materialise, it seems as though Manchester United would be in pole position.According to the Sunday Express, Sessegnon feels an incredible affiliation to Fulham having spent his entire career there.But he did grow up supporting Liverpool as a boy and would be interested to move to Jurgen Klopp’s side if a bid came in.The winger (who can also play at left-back) was a key member of Slavisa Jokanovic’s side last season – scoring 16 goals and recording seven assists.He subsequently won the Championship Player of the Season and the Young Player of the Season awards at the ceremony back in April. 1 The two Premier League giants could be locked in a transfer battle for the wonderkid last_img read more


first_imgSinn Féin Justice Spokesperson Pádraig MacLochlainn has welcomed the Taoiseach’s apology to the women of the Magdalene Laundries.He also called for the State to ensure that any redress scheme must be based on the rights and needs of the women themselves.Deputy MacLochlainn said “It is shocking that it has taken this long that for the women who were incarcerated in the Magdalene institutions to get the apology they deserve. “The State was complicit with the church in ensuring that there was an architecture of containment there for those whom they viewed were in need of moral guardianship for anything from being very young orphaned girls, to simply being too pretty but unmarried.“Unfortunately, the Taoiseach’s apology doesn’t explicitly list the state’s exact wrongdoing. I hope this will be forthcoming in due course. I also hope that the Government will see fit to also acknowledge the state’s role in the wrongful practice of symphisiotomy through the year’s too.“What happened in those laundries is a national scandal. It was slavery. Women were beaten, they were stripped and their heads were shaved by the nuns who ran them. The courts, the gardaí and Irish society stood over this horror.“I look forward to seeing the detail of the redress scheme. Under the UN Convention on Torture, the women are entitled to compensation. Any redress scheme must be rights-based and woman-focused. The Taoiseach has used the term “fund” in his speech which would seem to indicate that there is a predetermined amount of money in mind for the State to meet the women’s needs. This redress scheme must not be based on what the state feels like handing over. It must be based on the actual needs of the women themselves.” MacLOCHLAINN WELCOMES TAOISEACH’S APOLOGY TO WOMEN OF MAGDALENE LAUNDRIES was last modified: February 20th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Students bring Raphoe to a standstill for climate change

first_imgDeele College students brought the school to a halt on Friday afternoon to highlight the global inaction in relation to climate change around the world.The Raphoe school is one of several schools throughout the country who undertook this action to highlight the need for drastic changes to combat pollution and reduce our carbon footprint.The strikes were coordinated through two autonomous groups – FFF Ireland and School Strikes 4 Climate – as well as the Schools’ Climate Action Network (SCAN), a student-driven network of young people whose schools support their decision to strike. All of these events are coinciding with a global protest in 75 countries prompted by the school strike by Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg.Taoiseach Leo Varadkar supported the action last week in the Dáil and said he was “inspired” by the strikers.In a twist to the Raphoe school strike, Deele College combined the strike with their annual Seachtain na Gaelige school Ceili, which saw the would-be Ceili stars strutting their stuff while also striking for climate change.This was being organised by both the Irish and Geography departments. The students blocked the road and were supported by local commuters in their efforts to highlight the important issue of the environment and global warming. Shouting chants demanding Government action on climate change, the students made a real stand for the environment of the future.Deputy Principal, Mr Danny McFadden says that the idea of students striking for serious issues like global warming and climate change shows how engaged the students are with real life issues.“I would applaud the students on their stance and I think that if everyone, including those in power, took the same decisive action, we would be able to to rectify global issues much easier.“There was a great atmosphere in the school today with the Ceili to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge and the strike, which really added to the day. Our students took a stand against climate change and it really highlights the importance of the issue for all our school community.”Students bring Raphoe to a standstill for climate change was last modified: March 17th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Boeing 737 turns 50

first_imgMany at Boeing never wanted to build the world’s bestselling and most reliable plane and at one stage the non-believers almost sold the design to a consortium of Japanese aerospace manufacturers.That plane, the Boeing 737, celebrated the 50th year of its first flight this month — as the latest version took to the air for the first time.Key to the success of the 737 has been the ability of Boeing to improve the plane. The latest design, the MAX, is the fourth major upgrade.Boeing started studies of a short-haul jet plane to supplement its very successful 727 for short routes.Design work began in May 1964, with the original design for a 60-passenger plane for routes up to 1600km.Many in Boeing thought the move was crazy because three other competitors already had similar jets flying or about to fly and there were few major customers left.But Boeing had a major advantage with its family concept as its 737 would use many of the parts and the same cabin cross section (six across) as its best-selling 707 and 727.Boeing’s sales pitch was big-jet comfort on regional routes.Germany’s Lufthansa and United Airlines were sold and the 737 was launched.By the time the first flight took place in April 1967, 17 airlines had signed up. However, storm clouds were brewing for Boeing.By 1969 the 747 was in trouble with its weight and engine performance and Boeing’s Super Sonic Transport had to be totally redesigned.In 1970, starved of funds, Boeing looked for products to quit and the 737 which had sold only 23 that year was the prime candidate.The 747’s issues were resolved with compromises on all sides, the US government cancelled the SST in 1971 and the pressure came off. The future was not going to be high-speed travel across the globe but more a focus on regional flights connecting thousands of cities, with the 737 set to be both the magic carpet and a golden goose.There is possibly no better example of how engine and aerodynamic technology has advanced aviation than the 737.The first 737 could carry 124 passengers over 2775km, whereas the latest version to fly, two weeks just last Friday, the 737MAX 9 can carry 204 passengers in the same configuration over 7000km. And the fuel consumption improvements have been spectacular.Since 2000 for instance the fuel burn has declined 20 per cent from the current model in airline service to the MAX.As well as countless under-the-skin improvements, Boeing has given the 737 a new interior incorporating design concepts from its bigger brothers the 787 and 777.Dubbed the Sky Interior, it totally transforms the 737. Boeing is building 42 737s a month and that rate is moving to 47 this year, 52 next year and 57 in 2019 to clear the backlog.Since 1965 Boeing has received orders for 13,954 737s, with 4506 still to be delivered. Of those, 3700 are for the latest MAX models.The problem now for Boeing is how to replace its bestselling jet.The aerospace company may launch one more version of the MAX series, with 12 extra seats, but a clean-sheet design is needed to take it to the middle of this century.Challenge is where is the sweet spot to capture the bulk of the market. The original 737 was positioned in the 90-150 seat segment but that has grown to 150-220 seats over the years, with airlines now asking for even more seats.More seats mean a push from a single-aisle plane to a twin-aisle for ease of boarding but that makes it less attractive at the lower capacity end of the market.Boeing, and its now merged partner McDonnell Douglas dabbled with 200-seat twin-aisle designs in the 1980s and 1990s but airlines were lukewarm.The width of the cabin allowed for economy seating of 2-2-2 rather than the familiar single-aisle 3-3.But fast forward to today’s nightmare of passengers’ demands, particularly in the US, for carry-on baggage only and a twin-aisle solution with more overhead space, and the design plans have great appeal.last_img read more

Samsung Galaxy S4: Sometimes, More Is Less [Review]

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#Android#Samsung#Samsung Galaxy CameraThe S4’s cameras have so much going on it deserves its own focus. Fortunately, though, the advanced camera functions are easy to use and understand. The Galaxy S4 has a 13-megapixel back camera and 2MP front camera – more than most competitors.The goal of the Galaxy S4 camera is to give regular people (not just professional photographers) the ability to use more of its features. “Where we really focused was allowing people to really get a professional kind of photo experience super, super easy,” DiCarlo said.The camera interface uses a simple “mode” button on the display to toggle through the different ways the Galaxy S4 let you take a picture. The Smartphone For Your Mom?The term “fear of missing out” – FoMo – has been applied to the sociological concept of not wanting to miss anything your friends are doing in relation to social media, but it could just as easily apply to the Galaxy S4. With all the things that this smartphone can do, it’s easy to get the feeling that you are missing out on the capabilities of your own device.Let’s take a look at some of the new features in the Galaxy S4:Air View: Hover over an item like an email or a calendar date and Air View will display a preview of what is inside. This feature originally appeared in Samsung’s Note 2 with the built-in stylus but now can be done with a finger.Air Gesture: Theoretically, you can answer a phone call, change songs on a music playlist, swap browser tabs or perform a variety of other functions just by waving your hand over he device. An extra infrared sensor picks up the motion and executes the command. At least it is supposed to. Except for one limited instance (moving an app from one home screen panel to another), I was not able to get Air Gesture to work. And this turned out be a disappointing theme with the Galaxy S4.Smart Stay/Smart Pause/Smart Scroll: With Smart Stay, the screen stays on as long as you are looking at it. Smart Pause is intended to pause a video if your eyes look away. Smart Scroll is supposed to follow your facial motion and the tilt of your device to automatically scroll down a website. But no matter how hard I tried, with a wide variety of apps, I could not get Smart Pause to work. Smart Stay seems to work OK, but it was often hard to tell since I mostly seem to look at my smartphone for only a few seconds at a time. It was also difficult to get Smart Scroll to work. The instructions for these features note that your face and the background behind you must be well-lit, so Samsung seems to acknowledge that these functions won’t work all the time.Multi-Window: You Can use two apps at the same time. A little tab appears on the left of the screen and essentially acts as a “recent apps” menu.[See Also: Samsung Galaxy S4: The Phone So Complicated, It Has An ‘Easy’ Mode]Easy Mode: For people who ave trouble using complicated devices, the Galaxy S4 has an entire mode with bigger fonts, icons and less home screen space. This works, but there’s no surer sign of the S4’s feature bloat than the need for an “easy mode.”WatchOn: OK, this feature is cool. WatchOn uses the device’s infrared sensor to turn the S4 into a programmable TV remote control. It even recognize your TV and cable/satellite provider and displays a programming guide.Samsung Hub: Samsung used to have several different media “hubs” for books, music, video and so forth. They have now all been consolidated to one Hub.Group Play: This feature lets you to connect to other Samsung devices and play the same song through all of them at the same time, with one person acting as the DJ. This could be fun in some situations, but it’s mostly just a gimmick.Expanded Settings/Notifications: Android comes with a simple drop-down notification center. Samsung’s TouchWiz has historically added radio buttons to it to control Wi-Fi, GPS, rotate and other functions. Since the S4 has so many new functions, the company added an entirely new section to the drop-down settings to toggle all the various features on and off.“What we have done is create a form here which allows people to learn about the feature and decide if you want to turn it on our off. It is another way making these really, really powerful features more accessible,” DiCarlo said.Samsung Galaxy S4 settings panelThe Galaxy S4 comes pre-loaded with widgets and apps on its Android home screen panels out of the box, but these can be easily removed. See the composite image below for the pre-loaded apps and widgets on a Sprint version of the S4. (Note: Spotify does not come pre-loaded. I put that in to the only available space I could find on the Galaxy S4. )With all this… stuff, is this really the phone that I would recommend to my mother? Or anyone’s mother? Related Posts Panorama modeOne note: Some of the functions (animated photo, sound and photo) are saved to the Galaxy S4 in a proprietary Samsung file and can be shared only with other Samsung devices.Hardware & DesignThe specs on the Galaxy S4 are comparable to other top smartphones on the market. The U.S. version sports the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor as the HTC One and LG Optimus Pro G.It has all the usual sensors – Gyroscope, accelerometer, proximity – as well as that extra infrared sensor that powers the gesture-based controls. It also is said to have a barometer and humidity sensors, but I have no idea what they do or how to use them.The Galaxy Sr’s 2600 mAh battery, biggest in a non-“phablet” smartphone, will definitely last all day and then some.The Galaxy S4 has the same flimsy plastic removable back as other Galaxy S models. DiCarlo explained the company’s reasoning:In terms of the material, we definitely heard the criticisms and comments. It definitely did not go unheard. Our thinking on that is that a removable battery is a good thing. If you are at CES working all day or at a concert or whatever, having an alternate battery is certainly a good thing. A lot of people still like removable memory. And a lot of our accessories allow the device to stay thin by replacing that back cover for wireless charging or whatever. There are a lot of user benefits as well as durability factor, something you can carry around with you in a case. Not to make any excuse for it, but just to explain the thinking.Samsung’s accessories, like the flip cover back, are definitely a big reason for the removable back. So is weight. At 4.59 ounces, it is almost a half-ounce lighter than the full-metal-casing HTC One. Your smartphone should not be a source of stress. With its new Galaxy S4, it seems Samsung may not have gotten the memo.It seems that every feature Samsung could possibly dream up ended up in the Galaxy S4. The company pushes the envelope with technologies and features that keep the rest of the industry on its toes. Yet it packs the Galaxy S4 with so many of its own branded apps, so many features of questionable value that don’t even work properly, that it detracts from the overall quality of the device.Samsung does allow you to strip away many of those features. Its custom-made widgets can be thrown out, and functions like Air Gesture and Smart Pause can be turned off. Once you strip away all the superfluous garbage, the Galaxy S4 is actually a pretty nice device. And there are indications that Samsung recognizes the problem.“Galaxy S3 and Note II are very feature-rich products. As is the S4. That is very core to the brand of ‘next big thing,’” said Nick DiCarlo, VP of Portfolio Planning and Product Marketing at Samsung Telecommunications America. “With the S4 you will notice that we have done a ton of things to make things simpler. We hope that this could be a phone that you would recommend to your mom.” dan rowinski Even though the S4 is a little smaller than the Galaxy S3, its screen is a little bigger, growing from 4.8 inches to 5 inches. The very nice screen is HD Super Amoled, coming in at 441 pixels per inch. If anything, the colors may seem a little over saturated.You Might Want This Smartphone, You Might NotSamsung will sell a lot of Galaxy S4s. Consumers will like the size and shape, the screen and the camera. Developers will like the chance to play with the gesture-based controls like AirView (if they can actually get them to work). Enterprises won’t mind employees bringing the device to work with its capability to use Knox, Samsung’s mobile enterprise management solution.Really, the Galaxy S4 is a solid smartphone, in just about every way.You just have to put up with Samsung’s insistence on loading you down with bloatware, pre-loaded apps and features that you will likely never use and just get in the way. Once you cut through all that, the Galaxy S4 is a first rate smartphone. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Best Photo: Takes a burst of eight pictures and selects the best.Auto: Classic smartphone camera feature, automatically adjusts for light settings. On by default.Beauty Face: Enhances facial features automatically.Best Face: Combines five photos of a face to create the ideal image.Sound & Shot: Takes a still photo and records nine seconds of sound to go with it. Annoyingly, the clips play automatically when you flip through photos in the gallery.Drama: Takes multiple pictures of a moving object and transposes them to one shot. A standard feature on most digital SLRs.Animated Photo: You take a picture of someone waving at you.

PM flags off Varanasi-Vadodara train

first_imgPrime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off a Mahanama Express train between Vadodara in Gujarat and Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh on Friday, connecting the two Lok Sabha constituencies he won from in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Mr. Modi flagged off the train through video conferencing in Varanasi. “Though the Prime Minister is in Varanasi, his heart is still in Vadodara,” Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said here. The train is being flagged off ahead of the Gujarat Assembly elections later this year. The Mahanama Express has enhanced passenger amenities such as a redesigned ladder, LED lights, an odour-control system and more charging points for electronic gadgets. It has eight sleeper, two two-tier AC and one first-class AC coaches.“This will be the first long-distance passenger train originating from Vadodara. All other trains mainly originate from Ahmedabad. So it will be beneficial for people of Vadodara and Surat,” Mr. Goyal said. Seven-hour gainHe added that the time taken to travel between Vadodara and Varanasi would reduce by seven hours. The Minister said the Railways had increased investment in Gujarat by over 600% to ₹4,000 crore in the past three years.last_img read more

Cavaliers Parade Past Knicks, 101-83

first_imgNEW YORK — LeBron James was sitting comfortably on the bench and figured on staying there. Then J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert punctuated their return to New York with an alley-oop that demanded he stand.“That was beautiful, that was special,” James said. “I was planning on not getting up too many times off the bench, start my treatment session, but that was special.”James and Kyrie Irving each scored 18 points, Smith had 17 and the Cleveland Cavaliers crushed the Knicks 101-83 on Feb. 22.James moved past Allen Iverson into 22nd place on the career scoring list, and added seven rebounds and seven assists.Kevin Love finished with 16 points and 16 boards, combining with James and Irving to outscore the inept Knicks in the first half.Cleveland won for the 16th time in 18 games and got good performances from Smith and Shumpert, who were acquired by the Cavs on Jan. 5 and have helped solidify a team that was still below.500 shortly after the trade.“I think it’s great,” Smith said. “Our mindsets have changed, as opposed to trying to get a win to expecting to win every game.”The Cavaliers are 35-22 now and have been untouchable since returning from the All-Star break, hammering Washington by 38 on Feb. 20 and leading this one by 30.Shumpert came off the bench for four points, five rebounds and seven assists, one of them when Smith jumped to catch his lob pass and slammed it down with his back to the basket for an 89-59 lead. The two guards hugged, and Smith jumped into James’ arms heading back to the bench.“I even told him in the timeout, ‘Thank you for the price of admission,’” Cavs coach David Blatt said. “That was special and really nice that it was here in New York.”Langston Galloway scored 13 for the Knicks, who shot 3 for 19 from 3-point range and lost their seventh straight.It was 62-38 at halftime and James, Love and Irving had 39 points. The Knicks missed all nine 3-point attempts in the first half.“It’s the same thing occurring over and over. It’s nothing new,” Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. said. “We need a better start to games, point blank.”James has 24,383 points. He came in four behind Iverson and passed the former Philadelphia 76ers star quickly during a 12-point first quarter, when he slammed the ball so hard after a steal that it ricocheted off his left shoulder over the baseline after going through the basket.He played only 29 minutes, ending his streak of 25-point games on the road at 11.(BRIAN MAHONEY, AP Basketball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Mesut Ozil on target as Arsenal hammer Bournemouth in Premier League

first_imgArsenal’s Mesut Ozil marked his first Premier League start of 2019 with a goal and an assist as his side hammered Bournemouth 5-1 in their Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.The German attacking midfielder had not started a game for Arsenal since their 1-1 draw away to Brighton & Hove Albion on December 26 due to a knee problem, but showed no ring rust as he rattled home the first goal in the fourth minute.Ozil, who has become a fairly peripheral figure during manager Unai Emery’s tenure, then turned provider for the home side in the 27th minute.He drew out Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc before playing a simple pass to allow Henrikh Mkhitaryan to fire into an empty net.Midfielder Matteo Guendouzi threw Bournemouth a lifeline shortly afterwards as he lost the ball on the edge of his own box to Dan Gosling, who squared it to Lys Moussett for a simple finish to make it 2-1.However, the revival was short-lived as Laurent Koscielny put Arsenal 3-1 up just after the break and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made it four just before the hour mark, finishing a counter-attack by rounding Boruc and slotting the ball home.Substitute Alexandre Lacazette completed the rout by scoring from a free kick 12 minutes from the end to hand Bournemouth their fourth defeat in their last five league games.It was Arsenal’s third straight league victory, with Emery delighted to welcome Ozil back into the starting line-up as he made a number of changes ahead of Saturday’s derby against Tottenham Hotspur.advertisement”(He was) good, good. I think he is happier with us. I am now also proud of every player, and the same with Mesut. He helped us with his quality and work, to be organised, and he can play in different systems,” Emery enthused.The win means that Tottenham, who remain third despite a 2-0 loss to Chelsea, are now only four points ahead of the fourth-placed Gunners going into Saturday’s showdown.Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe, reflecting on how his side have not won a league away match since October, said: “We pride ourselves on being very honest and we didn’t do the supporters justice tonight. I really feel for them.”Also Read | Luis Suarez nets brace as Barcelona thrash Real Madrid to reach Copa del Rey finalAlso Watch:last_img read more

Power Rankings: The Top Five 6’ and Under Receivers of the Mike Gundy Era

first_imgFollowing David Glidden’s explosion last weekend (4 receptions, 145 yards, 2 touchdowns), I began thinking about the near-necessity of the undersized receiver. Over the course of Mike Gundy’s tenure in Stillwater, we’ve seen a number of 6’ and under receivers play impact roles for the Cowboys. This begged the question — who has been the best?While scanning the rosters, I noticed a good number of shorties that never really panned out. But while regulation-sized guys like Adarius Bowman, Dez Bryant and Justin Blackmon have dominated the headlines/statistics, Gundy’s squads have a good track record with guys barely tall enough to ride the Wildcat at Frontier City.Here are my top five.5. Isaiah Anderson – 5’10” (2009-2012)Isaiah Anderson comes in at number five on my list, as I was long a fan of his during my time on campus. He was a contributor on the 2011 Fiesta Bowl squad, and shined even more a year later with the 2012 team.Isaiah Anderson (USATSI)Isaiah Anderson (USATSI)His career statistics aren’t mind blowing (63 receptions, 961 yards, 8 touchdowns), but he did enough to make the list.4. Tyreek Hill – 5’8” (2014)This could be considered invalid for any number of reasons, most notably the fact he played several different positions. While he could probably be considered a running back first, return man second and then a receiver…his home run threat and ability to catch the football land him at number four.Tyreek Hill (USATSI)Tyreek Hill (USATSI)His time in Stillwater came to an unceremonious end, and his statistics (31 receptions, 281 yards, 1 touchdown) aren’t blowing socks off either. But with more time in this offense, with a full season of Mason Rudolph….  The numbers would have been there for the taking.3. David Glidden – 5’8 (2012-Current)David Glidden hits number three on this list and he’s not quite done yet. Coming off his 42 receptions, 598 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2014, he’s off to a terrific start in his final season on campus. In fact, after two games, he’s already sitting with 9 receptions, 216 yards and 2 scores. Gildden is arguably the Cowboys’ best receiver, which is uncommon for guys his size. The chemistry he’s developed with Mason Rudolph has me drooling uncontrollably. Watch out.2. Josh Stewart – 5’10 (2011-2013)Still bitter about him leaving school early, I can’t even hear the name Josh Stewart and not become overcome with grief. Fact of the matter: Stewart was/is lightning in a bottle and his chemistry with J.W. Walsh was something to behold.Josh Stewart (USATSI)Josh Stewart (USATSI)Since his exit from Stillwater, the injury bug has been devastating for Stewart. But 180 receptions, 2,204 yards and 12 touchdowns over the course of three seasons lands him firmly at number two. I miss him to this day.1. Josh Cooper – 5’11 (2008-2011)Overshadowed by a two-time Biletnikoff Award-winning teammate in Justin Blackmon, Josh Cooper was the definition of reliable over the course of his tenure in Stillwater. Blackmon accounted for 40 touchdowns during his three years on campus, but it was often Cooper who would come up with a timely catch when it was needed most.Josh Cooper. (USATSI)Josh Cooper (USATSI)His 161 receptions, 1,695 yards and 9 touchdowns are not as appealing as Josh Stewart’s numbers, but his role on the best team in school history, coupled with his reliability, make Josh Cooper my number one on this list.There you have it, folks.

LIVE: Italy vs Saudi Arabia

first_imgItaly 2 Saudi Arabia 1: Balotelli repays Mancini’s faith Patric Ridge Last updated 1 year ago 04:47 5/29/18 Mario Balotelli - cropped Getty Images Mario Balotelli scored his first Italy goal in almost four years as Robert Mancini’s Azzurri side claimed a 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia. Mario Balotelli marked his return to international football in style as his goal helped Italy secure a 2-1 friendly victory over Saudi Arabia in Robert Mancini’s first match in charge.Having recalled Balotelli to the Italy squad for the first time since the 2014 World Cup, Mancini – instilled as boss on 14 May – showed no hesitation in starting his former Inter and Manchester City prodigy as the spearhead in a relatively inexperienced line-up.And Balotelli duly repaid Mancini’s faith, capping his first start since the 1-0 defeat to Uruguay on June 24, 2014, with a sublime solo strike 21 minutes into Monday’s clash in St. Gallen.

Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Unlike the Azzurri, Saudi Arabia have qualified for this year’s World Cup, up against Egypt, Uruguay and hosts Russia in Group A, but Juan Antonio Pizzi’s side were lacklustre throughout – Domenico Criscito hitting the woodwork as Italy pressed for a second.Balotelli made way to a standing ovation just before the hour, and that change proved decisive when substitute Andrea Belotti drilled in Italy’s second on 68 minutes.Sloppy play from Davide Zappacosta enabled Yahya Al Shehri to pull one back for Saudi Arabia, but Italy – thanks to a great stop from Gianluigi Donnarumma – held firm to get Mancini’s tenure off to a winning start.26 – Tonight’s starting XI is the youngest fielded by Italy since November 2010: average age is 26 years 8 days.

US trade gap grows to 487B in November consumer spend more on

US trade gap grows to $48.7B in November; consumer spend more on imports, while exports lag by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Jan 11, 2013 7:06 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – The U.S. trade deficit expanded in November to its widest point in seven months, driven by a surge in imports that outpaced only modest growth in exports.The Commerce Department report Friday suggests trade will drag on economic growth in the October-December quarter. A wider trade gap slows growth because it means Americans spent more on foreign products while U.S. businesses earned less in overseas sales.Still, the report showed consumers have maintained an appetite for spending. They kept buying iPhones and other imported goods in November, despite high unemployment and low wage growth.“A strong rebound in imports is not necessarily all bad for the U.S. economy because it indicates that consumers are spending. It shows the private sector is not dead,” said Gregory Daco, senior economist at HIS Global Insight.The trade gap widened 15.8 per cent to $48.7 billion in November from October, the report noted. Imports grew 3.8 per cent, led by gains in shipments of cellphones, including Apple’s new iPhone.Exports increased only 1 per cent. And exports to Europe fell 1.3 per cent, further evidence of the prolonged debt crisis that has gripped the region.Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, predicts trade trimmed growth by about 0.5 percentage point in the final three months of the year. He expects fourth-quarter growth to be no more than an annual rate of 1.5 per cent. That would be nearly half the 3.1 per cent rate reported for the July-September quarter, which was helped by healthy growth in exports.Martin Schwerdtfeger, senior economist at TD Bank, also expects the trade deficit to subtract from October-December growth. But he said the flood of imports could be signalling stronger consumer spending and business investment.“The higher imports could mean that domestic consumption is improving. That would override some of the drag from a higher trade deficit,” Schwerdtfeger said.Through the first 11 months of 2012, the trade deficit is running at an annual rate of $546.6 billion. That’s roughly 2.4 per cent lower than the 2011 deficit.Imports of consumer goods grew to a monthly record in November. Much of the growth was from cellphones and other household electronics products.Oil imports dropped 2.5 per cent, reflecting a fall in prices and lower volume.Imports of foreign-made autos and auto parts rose, likely reflecting catch-up shipments following port disruptions in October caused by Superstorm Sandy.The U.S. trade deficit with China, the largest with any country, totalled $29 billion in November. That’s down slightly from the monthly record of $29.5 billion in October. But the trade gap with China is still on track to set a new annual record in 2012.Trade was a modest positive for overall economic growth in 2012 and many economists believe that trend will continue in 2013. However, that forecast is based on a view that the European debt crisis stabilizes and growth in Asia begins to rebound.In its latest outlook, a forecasting panel for the National Association for Business Economics predicted that the U.S. trade deficit for 2013 will total $533 billion, a slight improvement from the $540 billion deficit they expect when the trade numbers are totalled up for all of 2012. That expectation for a slight improvement is based on a view that export growth will outpace imports in 2013. read more

Google cutting 1200 more Motorola jobs as cellphone division struggles to compete

Google cutting 1,200 more Motorola jobs as cellphone division struggles to compete AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by The Associated Press Posted Mar 8, 2013 8:05 am MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – Google is cutting an additional 1,200 jobs in its Motorola division as the unprofitable cellphone maker struggles to compete.Last summer, Google Inc. announced 4,000 Motorola job cuts. The latest reductions are in addition to those and will be in countries including the U.S., China and India.“These cuts are a continuation of the reductions we announced last summer,” Google spokeswoman Niki Fenwick said in an email.When Mountain View, Calif.-based Google bought Motorola last year for $12.4 billion, it had about 20,000 employees.The online search leader also expects to pare jobs at the division with a planned $2.35 billion sale of the Motorola set-top business, which has about 7,000 employees. Google had about 53,000 employees as of late September.Google bought Motorola primarily for its 17,000 patents, bolstering the company in the mobile device arms race with other technology companies. The cellphone business has lost market share to Apple and Samsung, however, and posted operating losses of $1.1 billion since Google completed the Motorola deal in May.Analysts have been concerned that adding a phone manufacturing business could hurt Google’s profitability and potentially alienate the other device makers that use Google’s Android mobile operating system. Samsung, HTC and other phone makers run Android. Apple and BlackBerry have their own systems.The Wall Street Journal reported the Motorola job cuts in Friday’s editions.Google shares rose $3.39 to $835.99 in premarket trading. read more

CES gadget show features computing power software breakthroughs leading to autonomous cars

by Tom Krisher, The Associated Press Posted Jan 5, 2016 12:55 pm MDT Last Updated Jan 5, 2016 at 1:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Powerful computers that can drive better than people, high-definition road maps and low-cost sensors are about to remove some big barriers to self-driving cars.Some breakthrough features will come to your dashboard quickly, while others will take a few years. But companies from Silicon Valley to Detroit will use the CES gadget show in Las Vegas this week to demonstrate that autonomous car technology is heading for prime time.“It can happen today. The technology is more or less ready,” said Amnon Shashua, chief technical officer of Mobileye, an Israeli company that makes computers to process information from car-mounted cameras that are increasingly sophisticated.Legal and government policy issues remain, and computer controls haven’t quite been perfected. Still, Shashua and others say it’s reasonable to expect cars to take over more driving tasks from humans on the way to full automation in about five years.In addition to the building blocks of autonomous driving, at least three automakers are rolling out new vehicles at CES, which is rapidly becoming a showcase for the auto industry. Volkswagen will show off a battery-powered Microbus that could go on sale in 2017, and General Motors will uncover the final version of its Chevrolet Bolt electric car with a 200-plus-mile range. Upstart electric car maker Faraday Future unveiled a futuristic concept race car.Details will come later, but here are five areas to be featured at the Las Vegas show:THE SEEING CARRadar, camera sensors and a remote-sensing technology called Lidar will help cars see their surroundings and decide what actions to take. One of the more important announcements will come from Quanergy, which will unveil low-cost solid-state Lidar, or lasers, that can see 360 degrees regardless of weather. Early self-driving cars had bulky globes on the roof with spinning Lidar sensors, costing around $70,000. Quanergy’s Lidar eliminates the globe and cuts the cost to about $1,000 per car. Lidar works with three-dimensional mapping to help steer cars. Announcements about sophisticated mapping also are expected, including one from Detroit-area auto parts supplier Delphi.SENSOR FUSIONA self-driving car needs technology that can make sense of the thousands of camera images and data from radar and Lidar. Companies such as Nvidia are working on artificial intelligence to decide how to handle the millions of situations a car will encounter. On Monday, the company unveiled a lunchbox-sized automotive supercomputer with the processing power of 150 MacBook laptops. The company says Volvo will be the first automaker to work with the computers. Nvidia says the computers will be able to see images, read street signs, spot pedestrians and process information better than humans. “It really shifts the game then to a software-defined vehicle,” said Daniel Shapiro, Nvidia’s director of automotive marketing.THE BONESToday’s luxury cars have about 50 computers and run more than 100 lines of software code, more than a large passenger jet. But the wiring in cars is already strained and won’t transfer data fast enough for advanced safety devices. Delphi will show off a new wiring architecture to handle 1,000 times more information, so cars won’t be obsolete as soon as they leave the dealer. The technology will come to Audi vehicles first this year and handle radar and cameras for automatic emergency braking. But it also can integrate Lidar. Jeff Owens, Delphi chief technical officer, says data travels slowly on car networks now — inadequate for safety and other critical functions. “Literally every nanosecond counts,” he said.CYBER SECURITYWhen benevolent hackers took over a Jeep Cherokee through its radio last year, the auto industry got nervous. At CES, parts maker Visteon is among companies that will show off infotainment systems that are better protected from hacking attacks. Visteon CEO Sachin Lawande says radios today don’t even have a minimum level of security. His company’s radios have codes in chips and use encryption to stop unauthorized applications. Yet the chips boot up in under 10 seconds, a requirement in autos.LET THE CAR DO THE TALKINGIt won’t be long until the car can communicate with everything from a home thermostat to other cars and even the McDonald’s drive through. Delphi is offering a phone cradle that lets the car transmit orders to a restaurant, while BMW and others will show off technology that controls home devices. There’s also vehicle-to-vehicle technology coming. Visteon’s will be able to communicate with cars ahead of you on a freeway to warn you of stopped traffic or hazards such as black ice.

Yemen UN chief welcomes announcement of humanitarian ceasefire

The pause will commence on Friday, 10 July, to permit humanitarian actors to reach civilians in need and its acceptance was conveyed by Yemen’s President Abdrabuh Mansour Hadi to the Secretary-General in a letter earlier this week. Likewise, Mr. Ban has also received assurances through his Special Envoy on Yemen, Ould Cheikh Ahmed, from the Houthis, the General People’s Congress and other parties that the pause will be “fully respected and that there will be no violations from any combatants under their control.” “It is imperative and urgent that humanitarian aid can reach all vulnerable people of Yemen unimpeded and through an unconditional humanitarian pause,” the Secretary-General’s Spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric, told reporters at UN Headquarters this afternoon, ahead of a statement issued by his Office. “Full and unhindered access by humanitarian agencies to all parts of the country, including through sea and airports, should be ensured with a view to reaching people in need, including with essential medicines, vaccinations, food and water,” the statement added. According to the latest UN data, the humanitarian crisis in Yemen has been steadily deteriorating since the outbreak of fighting in late March 2015. In the past three months alone, some 3,000 Yemenis have been killed, half of them civilians, and 14,000 injured. Over a million people have had to flee their homes and 21 million need immediate help, close to 13 million people are unable to meet their food needs, 15 million people have no healthcare and outbreaks of dengue and malaria are raging unchecked. Humanitarian partners have reached 4.4 million people with aid in the past three months, but this is a fraction of those in need, says the UN Spokesperson. The United Nations, the Red Cross/Red Crescent movement and international non-governmental organizations working together have now activated the highest level of emergency response. The first pause in the hostilities took place in mid-May. “The Secretary-General reminds the parties to the conflict of their obligations under international humanitarian law to protect civilians and calls on all sides to contribute to preventing a humanitarian catastrophe in the country,” continued the statement. The UN spokesperson added that Mr. Ban was “grateful” for Mr. Ould Cheikh Ahmed’s ongoing efforts to engage with all Yemeni stakeholders to take confidence-building steps towards a durable cease-fire and develop a mechanism for the withdrawal of forces, release of political prisoners and the resumption of an inclusive political process. In mid-June, Mr. Ould Cheikh Ahmed facilitated in Geneva a round of consultations among key Yemeni stakeholders. These measures, he said, would ultimately form part of subsequent agreements which will require further consultations. “The Secretary-General encourages all parties to the conflict to extend their full cooperation and support to his Special Envoy on the way forward,” the statement concluded. “The Secretary-General firmly believes that the only sustainable solution to the conflict in Yemen is through peaceful and all-inclusive political dialogue and negotiations.” read more

Opinion Stay or play Who will get the starting nod at quarterback

Left: Then-junior quarterback Braxton Miller during a game against Illinois on Nov. 16, 2013, in Champaign, Ill. Center: Redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones during the College Football Playoff National Championship against Oregon on Jan. 12 in Arlington, Texas. Right: Redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett during a game against Minnesota on Nov. 15 in Minneapolis.The Ohio State football team walked off the field at AT&T Stadium early Tuesday morning as the national champions of college football, but its quarterback situation could not have been more undetermined. The Buckeyes currently have three quarterbacks on the roster who could easily start at almost any school in the country and maybe one or two who could be valuable backups right away in the NFL.That said, I broke down each quarterback and why they should stay or leave, and I made a prediction of what each signal caller will ultimately decide. Senior — Braxton MillerWhy he should stay: In his 2 1/2 years as a starting quarterback at OSU, Miller has become a fan favorite and a staple of college football. A two-time Big Ten Conference MVP and Offensive Player of the Year, Miller led the Buckeyes to an undefeated season in 2012 and broke multiple school records en route to a 26-8 record as OSU’s starting quarterback. He also finished in the top 10 of the Heisman Trophy vote twice, finishing fifth in 2012 and ninth in 2013. Miller not only has the most experience of any quarterback on OSU’s roster, he also has received more individual awards and led the Buckeyes in total yards for three straight seasons. Entering the 2014 season, Miller needed just 504 total yards to break the school career record set by Art Schlichter from 1978-81 (8,850).Safe to say if Miller returns, in any capacity and remains healthy, he will do just that. Why he should leave: Frankly, there is no guarantee Miller would start in any capacity in 2015, let alone at quarterback. Miller would be up against the reigning Big Ten Quarterback of the Year in redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett and a national title winner in redshirt-sophomore Cardale Jones — and that is just if he wants to play quarterback. If Miller stays and does not win the starting job, it is likely he would play H-back and would then have to compete with redshirt-freshman Jalin Marshall and sophomore Dontre Wilson for playing time. If Miller were to transfer, he could easily earn a starting job at probably 80 percent of Division I football schools in the country.But at OSU, his chances are dwindling. Prediction: Miller will remain at OSU, but not as its starting quarterback. Will play significant time as a wildcat quarterback and as an H-back. Redshirt-freshman — J.T. BarrettWhy he should stay: Why wouldn’t he?Barrett not only led the Buckeyes to an 11-1 record, he won the Quarterback of the Year award as, in reality, a backup. He finished fifth in the 2014 Heisman Trophy voting, and likely would have been invited to New York as a finalist had a fractured ankle against Michigan not cut his season short. Barrett broke Drew Brees’ Big Ten conference record for total touchdowns in a season in just 11 and three-fourths games and is the youngest of the three quarterbacks in this discussion. Even if Jones and Miller both decide to stay, and Barrett doesn’t win the job in 2015, he could still very well be the Buckeye starter in 2016 and almost guaranteed the spot in 2017 should he return for a redshirt-senior season. Why he should leave: Since Barrett is not yet eligible for the NFL Draft, it is hard to find a reason for the Texas native to leave Columbus. Barrett could transfer and still have two remaining years of eligibility, but this would ultimately set him back considering all he has accomplished as a young player. If the NFL was a possibility, it would make sense more than anyone on this list for Barrett to book for the big leagues. He has a full season of experience under his belt in a conference that now has a national title and two New Year’s Six bowl wins next to its name. A long shot prediction could be made that Barrett will follow now-former OSU offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman down to Houston where Herman is now the head coach to play in his home state. But Barrett said after the title game that he will return to Columbus, and seemed happy to do so. Prediction: Barrett returns to OSU, sitting out most of spring practice because of rehab from an ankle injury, and earns the starting job in 2015 because of his knowledge of the game and production. Redshirt-sophomore — Cardale JonesWhy he should stay: Not only is Jones an Ohio native, he helped bring OSU its first national championship in 12 years, which is the last major title won by an Ohio team in that span. Jones has become a household name, and will be forever remembered by Buckeyes everywhere. And he got a hug from LeBron James, so why ruin that, right?But in all seriousness, Jones has the tools and ability to be an NFL quarterback. Standing 6-feet-5-inches and 250 pounds with a cannon for an arm, Jones is a prototype for the NFL. However, just going on three starts, albeit against Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon, doesn’t give us a lot to go off of. NFL scouts dissect every aspect of a player’s game, and frankly, there isn’t enough film on Jones just yet.His physical talent, along with Miller and Barrett nursing injuries, will give him an early edge on the competition should he decide to return.Why he should leave: Jones has been in a similar situation before.Jones was the starting quarterback throughout spring practice in 2014 as Miller nursed shoulder surgery and, despite a poor passing performance in the spring game (14-31 for 126 yards), beat out Barrett for the backup job.After that, however, Barrett made a late push and was announced as Miller’s backup just days before Miller re-injured his shoulder.Jones was reduced to third-string, and who is to say that won’t happen again in this off-season?If he stays, Jones will, in all likelihood, enter spring practice as the starter with Barrett and Miller recovering from their injuries, but can he make a big enough push to beat out both?Jones’ stock will never be higher than it is right now barring being named the OSU starter and earning another national title.If he leaves now, he not only puts himself in a situation to make money, he puts the Buckeyes in a situation to make an easier decision at quarterback.Prediction: Jones stays, does well enough in spring practice to earn the No. 2 spot on the depth chart and backs up Barrett in 2015.Oh, and don’t forget that top-dual threat quarterback recruit Torrance Gibson is verbally committed to play for Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes.But I don’t dare to go there … yet. read more

Advertising crackdown on secondary ticketing websites over fees and charges

first_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Singer Amy Macdonald has also warned music fans about resellers Credit:Getty The advertising watchdog has clamped down on four of the main secondary ticketing websites by banning their “misleading” pricing information.The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has taken action against StubHub, Viagogo, Seatwave and GetMeIn after finding that they were not upfront and clear with consumers about additional ticket fees and charges that were added at the end of the booking process.It has banned the websites from not making the total ticket price, VAT-inclusive booking fee and delivery fee clear at the start of the booking process.The ASA has banned Viagogo from claiming that it is the “official site” after it misleadingly implied it was an official primary ticket outlet rather than a second-hand ticket website.Viagogo is also banned from making a “100% Guarantee” claim in its ads which the ASA said misleadingly suggested that consumers were guaranteed entry to the relevant venue.The ASA found there was a reasonable risk that customers could be denied entry with a ticket bought from a secondary site. “The message from our rulings is simple and it’s clear: The price you see at the start should be the price you pay at the end.”A StubHub spokeswoman said: “As a consumer-first ticket marketplace, StubHub supports any measures which make ticket buying easier, more convenient and more transparent for fans.”We welcome this opportunity to work closely with the ASA and we will be fully compliant with its decision.”We hope that other players in the ticketing industry, including primary issuers, follow suit.”In November the competition watchdog announced it was taking enforcement action against secondary ticketing websites suspected of breaking consumer law.The Competition and Markets Authority, which did not identify the sites, had been investigating the market.A number of artists including Ed Sheeran, Mumford And Sons, Radiohead and Amy Macdonald have encouraged music lovers to stop using Viagogo, GetMeIn, StubHub and Seatwave.A spokeswoman for Ticketmaster, which owns Seatwave and GetMeIn, said: “Our ticket resale sites already ensure fans know exactly what they will pay at every stage of the buying process, displaying all fees as soon as the customer selects and submits the number of tickets they are looking to buy.”We will continue to work with both the ASA and the CMA to further develop levels of transparency and consumer protection within the UK ticketing sector.” UK advertising rules require quoted prices to include non-optional taxes and fees that apply to all or most buyers, and advertisers should also list any applicable delivery fees.ASA chief executive Guy Parker said: “Many of us will recognise the frustration of being happy with the initial price of tickets on a secondary website only to be stung by hefty fees when we come to book. Alex Neill, Which? managing director of home products and services, said: “It’s absolutely right that the ASA has stepped in to prevent secondary ticketing websites from misleading people and potentially leaving them disappointed and out of pocket.”With people increasingly finding that they have to buy tickets through secondary sites, the sector must be closely scrutinised and action should be taken against companies that aren’t playing by the rules.” Singer Amy Macdonald has also warned music fans about resellers last_img read more

Row over Bluebird legacy splits Donald Campbells admirers

Gina Campbell, the daughter of the late Donald Campbell CBE, with Whoppit, the teddy bear mascot belonging to her fatherCredit:Getty Donald Campbell crashed on Coniston Water in 1967 She told The Telegraph: “It would be fantastic to take her around the world and show her off. That would be the proper way of perpetuating my father’s achievements – to inspire people to set their own records.“If children could see Bluebird in all her magnificence it might inspire them to become engineers, scientists, pilots and record setters and that would be wonderful.”Ms Campbell had initially backed the museum plan, but changed her mind after seeing the restored Bluebird unveiled for the first time at Loch Fad, on the Isle of Bute in Scotland, last August.“When I saw Bluebird running at Bute I realised she is a living, breathing thing and it would be wrong to stick her away in a museum,” she said. “I used to think she should be kept at Coniston, which of course is her spiritual home and it’s where my father is buried in the graveyard there.“But the public will not be able to see her in very great numbers there. She needs to be shown off at events around the world.”Ms Campbell was just 17 when she was told her father’s K7 had crashed and sunk while attempting to set a daring new speed record, receiving the news of his death at the age of 45 while working abroad at a ski resort.The accident came as Campbell was attempting to beat his own water speed record of 276.33mph set three years earlier.The badly damaged craft lay on the bed of Coniston Water until it was raised in 2001 by Bill Smith, an engineer who led the Bluebird Project Team’s restoration of Bluebird at his workshop in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

A bitter row over the future of Bluebird, which claimed the life of speed record breaker Donald Campbell when it crashed on Coniston Water in 1967, has split those charged with preserving his enduring legacy.While some want to put the newly-restored hydrofoil on permanent display at a museum in the village where Campbell is buried, others want the craft to tour the world as a way of inspiring future generations.Now Campbell’s daughter has stepped into the dispute, endorsing the ambition of the volunteers who restored Bluebird to show her off at various sites around Britain and the rest of the world.Her call comes despite having gifted the wreck of the Bluebird K7 to the Ruskin Museum at Coniston village, which plans to display her in a purpose-built wing of the building.While the Ruskin Museum wants the craft on permanent display, the Bluebird Project Team volunteers who worked tirelessly to restore the craft after she was recovered from the waters of the lake say she should be used in periodic displays on water, where her engineering prowess can be showed off to its full effect.Ms Campbell – who was a teenager when her father was killed attempting to smash through the 300 mph barrier – has now said the hydrofoil should be seen by as many people as possible rather than being kept in a museum as a relic. Donald Campbell crashed on Coniston Water in 1967Credit:PA Gina Campbell, the daughter of the late Donald Campbell CBE, with Whoppit, the teddy bear mascot belonging to her father Their plan had been to take the hydrofoil back onto Coniston Water in July, in a fitting tribute to Campbell.But last month the outing was called off after what the Bluebird Event Working Group – made up of local villagers, business representatives and councillors – described as “unforeseen circumstances”. It is understood the group felt they needed more time to plan the event properly.Mr Smith’s ambition is to eventually display Bluebird at some of the sites of Campbell’s greatest achievements – such as  Lake Mead in Nevada, where K7 set a record of 216 mph in 1955.He said: “It’s a no brainer Bluebird should be seen by as many people as possible rather than being stuck behind closed doors. She belongs on the water, that’s when she comes alive.”Ms Campbell, who in 1990 broke her own World Water Speed Record in New Zealand – achieving 166 mph in a three point hydroplane – now fears the matter could end up in the courts and has called for the two groups to sit down together to resolve the dispute.“They need to talk to each other and reach a compromise,” she said. “But I’m afraid they seem miles apart at the moment.”Additional reporting by Jen Bowey read more

You could hear a pin drop – 400 jobs at risk at

first_imgUpdated 21:57LUFTHANSA TECHNIK AIRMOTIVE Ireland (LTAI) today announced it is to start a process “to consider closing the company”.The firm has a jet engine overhaul facility at Rathcoole in Dublin which employs 400 people. Today Lufthansa said it will consult with employee representatives and begin immediate negotiations with trade unions.This decision follows an “extensive review of operations”, the company said, in the context of “declining revenues and shrinking international market opportunities”.Commenting on the announcement, Managing Director of LTAI Wolfgang Mörig praised the workforce for their contributions over the years and expressed “regret” that the company is now at this point.He noted “the increased quality and efficiency of the new generations of aircraft engines, with reduced need for overhaul”.StunnedWorkers were informed of the company’s decision today and UNITE regional officer Willie Quigley told that “you could hear a pin drop”.“The workers were stunned,” he said. “No one anywhere envisaged anything like this. Work was very scarce in the plant for a couple of weeks but this has happened before and changes have been asked for and conceded by workers.”I’m sure there was absolute horror and devastation in the families when they heard. A lot of them have young kids and kids in college and Christmas is just five or six weeks away.The union represents more than 200 of the workers in the plant and Quigley said representatives will be looking at “every potential alternative” to closure.Redundancy“If all that fails, we’ve no other choice than to get the best possible redundancy deal and secure pensions, but right now we’ll be trying to get the company to look at alternatives to keep it as it is, even with reduced numbers,” he said.A council with representatives of all three unions involved will hold a meeting on Monday morning and they will then meet with management in the afternoon to start negotiations.Lufthansa Technik took a 60 per cent shareholding of Airmotive Ireland, which was set up by Airlingus, in 1997.

Irelands abortion laws to be challenged at the UN for a second

first_imgA SECOND CHALLENGE to Irish laws forbidding abortions for medical reasons has been lodged with the UN.The Centre for Reproductive Rights (CRR), which filed three petitions on behalf of an Irish woman, Amanda Mellett, alleging human rights violations with the UN Human Rights Committee in November, announced today that they are bringing another case to the committee.The Centre filed the case on behalf of Siobhán Whelan, who was forced by Ireland’s restrictions on abortion to travel to the United Kingdom to obtain safe and legal abortion services after she learned that she was carrying a foetus with a fatal anomaly.The Centre say that they filed today’s petition to “hold Ireland accountable for violating Siobhán’s basic human rights by subjecting her to cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, interfering with her privacy, and discriminating against her on the basis of her gender”.Johanna Westeson, regional director for Europe at the Centre for Reproductive Rights said that the Irish system is “cruel”.“Rather than ensuring women with non-viable pregnancies have all the information and services they need to make their own personal decisions about their reproductive health, the Irish health system cruelly denies them both critical reproductive health information and safe and legal options to end pregnancy.”Siobhán’s storySiobhán Whelan became pregnant in September 2009.About 21 weeks into the pregnancy, doctors at Dublin’s National Maternity Hospital informed Siobhán that the foetus had a fatal anomaly called Trisomy 13.One doctor informed Siobhán that in another jurisdiction she would be offered a termination, but that this was not possible in Ireland.On January 20, 2010, at 22 weeks, Siobhán’s pregnancy was terminated at the Fetal Assessment Center at Liverpool Women’s Hospital. When she returned to Ireland, Siobhán was not offered any support to deal with her grief.“The Irish doctors made me feel like it was illegal to discuss the option of termination for fear of having the door slammed in my face or of not receiving any help whatsoever,” said Siobhán Whelan.“I will never understand why I had to pack my bags and leave Ireland so I could access the medical care I needed. It is truly demeaning and I will never forget it.”Siobhán is a member of Terminations for Medical Reasons Ireland (TFMR Ireland), an advocacy group campaigning for Ireland to amend the abortion law to allow women to terminate pregnancies due to fatal foetal abnormalities.TFMR continues to meet and offer support to women whose babies have been diagnosed with fatal foetal abnormalities. The group’s website can be found here. They be reached by email: Support group Leanbh mo Chroi can also be found on Facebook, or contacted by email at or by telephone on 086 747 4746.Read: Women who travelled to UK for terminations to bring case to United Nationslast_img read more

AHC want apology from Abbott

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Opposition Leader Tony Abbott recently made a comment criticising the Gillard government’s move to boost funds for the International Monetary Fund (IMF), saying “the risk is that the Australian taxpayer will end up contributing another $5 billion to the IMF so that Greeks can continue to retire at 50”. The Australian Hellenic Council (NSW) wrote Mr Abbott an email last week, expressing their “profound disappointment” at his comments and adding that “neither Australian nor IMF nor EU funds are being used in this way”. The email, written jointly by Council coordinator George Vellis and Media Director Dr Panayiotis Diamadis includes a request for a written correction of Mr Abbott’s statements, which is said to “appear to ridicule the real suffering of the people of Greece”. Mr Abbott, however, maintains that the Coalition supports the IMF, but not Australia’s involvement in what the MP describes as a “European bailout”. Federal Treasurer Wayne Swan has also derided Mr Abbott’s comments, saying to ABC’s Radio National that “the government will not contribute directly to the European bailout fund, and it’s up to the IMF to decide what to do with any funding increase”.last_img read more

Multicultural issues ignored

first_imgThe lack of detailed attention given to multicultural issues during the federal election campaign culminating in tomorrow’s ballot was noticeable, according to Australia’s ethnic community leaders.In the lead-up to the 2013 federal election, the Federation of Ethnic Communities Council of Australia (FECCA), the peak national body representing citizens from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, aimed to address a range of key areas that affect everyday life of ethnically diverse Australia. Issues such as, the 457 visa, employment, equal access to services for aged and disability care, asylum seeker and family reunion, the development of a federal multicultural act, advancing the status and interests of culturally and linguistically diverse women, as well as addressing undertaking of research on Multicultural Australia, were not discussed.Eugenia Grammatikakis, Senior Deputy Chair of FECCA when asked by Neos Kosmos about the way the election campaigned dealt with issues of interest to multicultural Australia said that both major parties have re-iterated their support for multiculturalism. However she said, her organisation is concerned by the fact that both parties did not articulate their policies. “National issues, issues of equality and access, such as the implementation of the National Disability Scheme or employment opportunities, have to be addresses from an ethnic point of view as well” stated Ms Grammatikakis.Joe Caputo, the Chairperson of the Ethnic Communities Council of Victoria, a state organisation for various ethnic community bodies in Victoria and an Executive Committee member of FECCA, speaking to Neos Kosmos, stated that he was very concerned because both major parties did not commit themselves to safeguarding all the infrastructure that already exists for ethnic communities in Australia, or that nothing was stated regarding issues that matter such as visa applications and family reunions. “There was not sufficient public debate, as a matter of fact the debate about multicultural Australia is diminishing in scope” said Mr Caputo.Costas Markos, Secretary General of the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria, through Neos Kosmos said that “The election campaign did not address, at least in public, the overall multicultural direction of Australia in the future. Even the discussion about the asylum seekers centred on the smugglers networks and not on the legitimacy of those who wish to find salvation in Australia or on how Australia can benefit from them”. Mr Markos then went to state that in relation to the Greek Australian Community “the aged care needs were not addressed, neither were the needs of Australian citizens of Greek origin who return to this country as a result of the crisis in Greece. There is a need for the creation of special support programs.” “Greek speaking care staff for our elderly are of great need. Also the Department of Human Services has to be more in tune with the needs of returned expatriates,” he concluded.In order to safeguard multiculturalism in Australia and to build a wider consensus around core issues, The Federation of Ethnic Communities Council of Australia, has for the last few months run a campaign trying to lobby Australian political parties to pass a Multicultural Act through Parliament, that would ensure all future governments supported measures such as anti-discrimination legislation and a National Language and a Accreditation Authority covering translators and interpreters.

Washougal River Mercantile revved up for business

first_imgThousands of motocross spectators today will wend their way up the Washougal River past the sleepy general store next to the steel bridge at the Clark-Skamania line.Hopefully, say the store’s family owners, the fans won’t forget their wallets.This could be the busiest day of the year for Washougal River Mercantile, which is ready to welcome crowds of dirt-bike fans, riders and pit crews that will breeze by on the way to the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship at Washougal MX Park, a couple of miles up the road. The national race often signals the height of the summer season for the out-of-the-way country store.“Nobody gets the weekend off during motocross,” said Ted Fuller, 79, the Texan-born patriarch of a family business that employs his wife, Charroll, four of their six adult children and umpteen grandchildren.“We’re the only store around for 10 miles,” Fuller said.That’s why its racks are flush with snacks such as Doritos and the 36-foot-long cooler is stockpiled with ice-cold drinks. Day trippers and overnight campers alike will find gas, propane and sunscreen at the 5,000-square-foot mercantile. The store also carries a full line of groceries, hardware and fishing tackle, and features a delicatessen, a feed store and a gunsmithing shop.The Fullers say customer turnout from the motocross race is always critical to the store’s annual sales. But this year’s event, expected to draw more than 20,000 people, is more important than ever to the business, after a two-year slump due to the recession.last_img read more

Fresh Drifting Snow Slowing Progress Along Iditarod Trail

first_imgAily Zirkle blew through Kaltag. (Photo by Emily Schwing)In the final push for Nome, Iditarod mushers are making big moves and cutting rest, but fresh snow, and drifted trail isn’t only slowing the leaders – trail conditions have also slowed dog teams in chase mode.Download AudioWhen Aliy Zirkle pulled her dog team into Koyuk, she was in good spirits, but her dog team was lacking their usually energy.Zirkle summed up the 50 mile run from Shaktoolik in one word: Slow.“I didn’t walk, although my dogs did,” Zirkle said. “I jog on the treadmill faster than we were going.”Overnight, at least four inches of fresh snow fell along the trail to Koyuk. Back in Unalakleet, Zirkle hinted that she planned to make a move. She wanted to blow through Shaktoolik in an attempt to catch Dallas Seavey, but she says the snow slowed her team and ruined her plan.“This was my – what do you call that when you throw that long pass?” Zirkle said. “This was my Hail Mary and I think they other team caught it and scored a touch down.”Zirkle says her team is unlikely to recover.Schwing: “Are you still in this race?Zirkle: “Oh no, I’m not in it for first, that’s for sure.”Schwing: “What are you in it for?”Zirkle: “I don’t know I’ll get back to you on that too.”Jessie Royer, arrived roughly a half hour after Zirkle.“This snow is horrible. I do not like this snow,” Royer said. “It is just – I mean it’s not setting up. The dogs just work so hard and they’re not getting anywhere.”Royer made a big push to catch the front of the pack, but of the teams running in the top five, hers has rested the least number of hours since Kaltag.“Oh, I’m a little low on rest, yeah, but they’re doing alright though,” she said. “They’re tired, but they’re not exhausted.”Royer is also realistic about how the race is likely to play out ahead of her.“Oh, you know, Dallas is pretty tough,” Royer said. “Something would have to happen to Dallas, because right now if you look at the times Dallas and I are running, he’s running faster than I am and he’s three hours ahead of me and that doesn’t look good unless something happens.”“Of all people I should know that it’s not over till it’s over, after it went down last year,” Dallas Seavey said.Last year, Seavey didn’t know he’d won the Iditarod until after he crossed the finish line. A fierce windstorm at the end of the race shook up teams at the front of the pack.This year, Seavey is running a similar race schedule. He was able to grab four and a half hours of rest in Shaktoolik and run to Koyuk in just over seven hours.“We got speed, that’s our thing,” Seavey said.As he cut up frozen food for his dogs with his ax, he said he was well aware of the dramatics moves mushers were making behind him, but he also knows they are cutting rest to keep up.“You can do runs like that, but then you’re in deep debt to your dog team, you owe them rest,” he said. “So as much as the other teams have been running hard to get here, I’ve been resting hard.”In his attempt to take that lead, Aaron Burmeister tried to run 90 miles to Koyuk from Unalakleet on minimal rest, but it took his team more than 15-and-a-half hours to break the trail.“I know he had a much easier run than I did coming over here, because he was following a trail, he didn’t have to tell his leaders ‘gee’ and ‘haw’ every five minutes going through the dark with the only thing you can see for the sign of a trail was a reflector,” he said.Burmeister says it was a gamble, but he doesn’t regret the move. The trail report calls for more fresh snow and heavy drifting, He says he’s happy to hand over the trail breaking effort to rival Dallas Seavey.last_img read more

Rain fury in Kerala death toll 76 287 L people in relief

first_imgThiruvananthapuram: With rains subsiding in many parts of Kerala, search operations are on in landslide-hit Kavalappara and Puthumala in Malappuram and Wayanad districts, as the toll in the monsoon fury climbed to 76 and 2.87 lakh people have sought refuge in relief camps. The toll is expected to go up as 50 people are still missing in Malappuram. Also Read – Enforcement Directorate summons Karnataka Congress leader D.K. Shivakumar Advertise With Us There is no ‘red alert’ of torrential rains for any of the 14 districts on Tuesday, but “orange alert” has been issued for six districts. An “orange” weather warning means people should “be prepared” and there is an increased likelihood of bad or extreme weather, which may disrupt road and air travel and threaten life and property. The state’s northern districts of Malappuram, Wayanad and Kozhikode and Idukki in central Kerala were the worst hit in the torrential rains. Also Read – Fresh restrictions imposed in Kashmir Valley Advertise With Us Malappuram was rocked by a series of landslips triggered by heavy rain since August 8 at Kavalappara and Kottakunnu in which 24 people have died. With the recovery of more bodies, including 24 from Malappuram, 17 from Kozhikode and 12 from Wayanad since August 8, the toll has gone up to 76. In Malappuram, 59,351 people have been lodged in 240 camps. Advertise With Us In neighbouring Wayanad, which was also rocked by a massive landslide at Puthumala, 12 people have lost their lives and seven are still missing. In the 212 relief camps in the district over 35,000 people have taken shelter, an official release said. In Kozhikode district, 17 deaths have been reported and over 60,000 people shifted to 209 camps. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi visited relief camps and flood-hit areas in his Wayanad Lok Sabha constituency, including worst-hit Puthumala, and interacted with people. “It is a tragedy not only for Wayanad but for Kerala and also some southern states. This is not only a Wayanad issue, this is a Kerala issue, this is a Karnataka issue. I think the Central government needs to pay attention and aggressively support the people of these states,” the Congress leader told reporters at Kalpetta after attending a review meeting with government officials on the flood situation in his constituency. He also tweeted that he had visited the epicentre of Puthumala landslide at Meppadi in Wayanad. “This is the site of a terrible landslide that destroyed an entire village, many people are still feared to be trapped & rescue work is ongoing,” he said. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Monday directed district collectors to ensure all necessary facilities for people living in relief camps and sanitation drive is being conducted in a proper manner in flood-hit places. Steps should be taken to restore power supply and drinking water distribution in rain-hit areas, he said. Vijayan, during a review meeting with collectors through video conference, also asked district authorities to provide temporary lodging for those who had lost their houses, even after the relief camps are wound up. As the rains receded, rescue operations in affected areas have become smooth, he said, adding that the next major rescue task was to evacuate people from mudslide-prone areas. Vijayan will visit Malappuram and Wayanad districts on Tuesday. Stoking a controversy, the CPI(M) politburo claimed that Home Minister Amit Shah had “deliberately skipped” aerial survey of the flood-hit areas of the State and instead chose to visit BJP-ruled states like Maharashtra and Karnataka. “The home minister in his aerial survey of flood-hit areas chose to go only to BJP ruled states of Maharashtra & Karnataka. It appears that he deliberately skipped the survey of the badly affected Kerala,” it alleged in a statement. According to an India Meteorological Department (IMD) update, heavy rains are likely in the next two days in southern Kerala. Thunderstorm accompanied by moderate rainfall with wind speed reaching 40 to 50 kmph is very likely to occur at one or two places in Alappuzha, Ernakulam and Pathanamthitta districts. ‘Orange Alert” has been sounded in six districts including Kannur, Wayanad, Malappuram, Idukki, Ernakulam and Alappuzha and ‘yellow alert’ (severe bad weather) in five-Kasaragod, Kozhikode, Palakkad, Thrissur and Pathanamthitta- on Tuesday, IMD sources said. The flood-affected Shoranur-Kozhikode section has been fully restored and up and down lines have been made fit for train operation, Railways said. Holiday has been declared for educational institutions in five districts– Ernakulam, Thrissur, Kozhikode, Wayanad and Malappuram– on Tuesday and various university examinations have been postponed, authorities said. In the wake of the torrential rains and loss to lives and property, the state had a subdued Eid celebration on Monday as a majority of the people avoided festivities and focused on collecting relief material for the flood-affected. At relief camps in districts like Kozhikode, a Muslim-dominated area, authorities and volunteers prepared biryani (a dish made with highly seasoned rice and meat, fish, or vegetables) for inmates and ensured facilities for them to offer prayers. Setting a fine example of unity, Muslim youths cleaned Hindu temples, which were filled with mud after being inundated, in Kannur and Wayanad which had witnessed torrential rains during the past few days.last_img read more

Brazils 200yrold museum hit by fire

first_imgA fire burns at the National Museum of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 2 September, 2018. Photo: ReutersA massive fire on Sunday ripped through Rio de Janeiro’s National Museum, one of Brazil’s oldest, in what the nation’s president said was a “tragic” loss of knowledge and heritage.Television footage showed the majestic building engulfed in flames that firefighters had yet to bring under control, with plumes of smoke shooting into the night sky.Though some 20 fire brigades dashed to the scene after the blaze erupted around 2230 GMT, they had yet to smother the inferno that was tearing through hundreds of rooms.The museum, located in the city’s north, was closed to the public when the fire broke out and no injuries were immediately reported. Neither were there any details about the cause of the blaze.The museum was founded in 1818 by King Joao VI and is considered a jewel of Brazilian culture, housing more than 20 million valuable pieces.”This is a tragic day for Brazil,” president Michel Temer said in a statement.”Two hundred years of work and research and knowledge are lost.”The collection included art and artifacts from Greco-Roman times and Egypt, as well as the oldest human fossil found within today’s Brazilian borders, known as “Luzia.”The museum’s deputy director, Luiz Fernando Dias Duarte, voiced “profound discouragement and immense anger” as the treasured institution burned, accusing Brazilian authorities of a “lack of attention.”He said the museum, a former palace that was once the official resident of the royal family, had never had necessary support.The National Museum, which is linked to the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, had suffered from funding cuts.As the fire raged researchers, professors and university students expressed a mix of sorrow and indignation, with some calling for demonstrations Monday in front of the ravaged building.Senator Lindbergh Faris of the country’s leftist Workers’ Party decried the institution’s lack of funding and blamed it on spending cuts ordered by the government.The fire comes as campaigning for October’s critical presidential vote gets underway, one of the most uncertain Brazilian elections in decades.last_img read more

Attorney Says He Paid Adult Film Actress Who Alleges Affair With Trump

first_img Share Pablo Martinez Monsivais/APMichael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, says he paid $130,000 to adult film star.Updated at 2:51 p.m. ETPresident Trump’s personal attorney says he paid $130,000 to an adult film star who said she had an affair with Trump.In a statement first provided to The New York Times, Michael Cohen says that “in a private transaction in 2016, I used my own personal funds to facilitate a payment of $130,000 to Ms. Stephanie Clifford. Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly.”Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, says she met Trump during a golf tournament in 2006. In a 2011 interview with In Touch Weekly, she said she had an affair with Trump while he was married to his current wife, Melania, shortly after she gave birth to their son, Barron. Cohen has stated that Trump has denied the affair. After the allegations became public, Clifford went on a publicity tour but was coy about the specifics.On Wednesday, Daniels’ manager, Gina Rodriguez, told The Associated Press that Cohen had violated the non-disclosure agreement between Daniels and Cohen and that the actress was now free to tell her side of the story.“Everything is off now, and Stormy is going to tell her story,” Rodriguez told the AP.Cohen says his payment to Clifford, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, “was lawful and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.” Cohen initially denied making the payments in the first Wall Street Journal story. He cited a complaint filed by Common Cause to the Federal Election Commission that he said “alleges that I somehow violated campaign finance laws by facilitating an excess, in-kind contribution.” Cohen says the allegation in the complaint “are factually unsupported and without legal merit,” adding his counsel has submitted a response to the FEC.Cohen said he would not have any further comment on the complaint or Clifford.Paul Seamus Ryan, the lawyer for Common Cause who filed the FEC complaint, said Cohen’s denial only included the Trump Organization and Trump campaign, not Trump himself.Cohen “did not remove the possibility that he was reimbursed by Donald Trump himself or by someone other than Donald Trump, for this payment,” said Ryan.Of Cohen’s allegation that the payment to Daniels had nothing to do with the campaign, Ryan said, “this came came a week after the Access Hollywood tapes, so the Trump campaign already was mired in sexual misconduct allegations, or a sexual misconduct scandal.”Copyright 2018 NPR.

Occupants of the building ran out of the apartment in panic and people residing in adjacent buildings also got frightened seeing the thick black smoke and they too rushed out of their homes. Police and fire brigade were immediately informed. Primarily three fire tenders were sent to douse the flames but fire fighters realised that the intensity of the fire is quite high and therefore fire brigade control room was asked to send more fire tenders. Later, in two phases eight more fire tenders were sent at the incident site.

While a section of firefighters sprayed water from the ground floor, other firefighters divided into two groups sprayed water from other buildings. The Disaster Management Group (DMG), Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) and Calcutta Electric Supply Corporation (CESC) also joined the fire fighters to bring the flames under control. The situation turned serious when a major vertical crack developed on the building due to the heat. Soon, a huge portion of the building collapsed. According to firefighters, the building was weak and therefore it collapsed but necessary safety precautions were taken in this regard. Fire minister Sujit Bose and Director General of Fire Jag Mohan arrived at the spot to take stock of the situation. After an elaborate discussion with the fire officials, Bose said: “Senior officials have visited the spot. The flames were brought under controlled after two hours. Though a part of the building collapsed, no one is trapped or injured. Some parts of the apartment need to be demolished. KMC will take a decision on that. An inquiry will be conducted to find out whether the building authorities have mandatory fire license and no objection certificates. Stringent action will be taken if negligence is found on anybody’s part. Some residents told me that they were alerted by the fire alarm.” According to CESC, engineers reached the site within 20 minutes and found that the fire erupted on the 4th floor of the multi-storied building. After consulting the fire brigade officials, power supply to the affected building was re-energised within 5 minutes. CESC engineers and workers kept a minute-to-minute watch till the fire was completely doused. Later, after the clearance given by the fire brigade, power supply was restored.last_img read more

Using Ultrasound Scientists Deliver Drugs To Specific Brain Regions

first_imgScientists used ultrasound to deliver a drug to a rat, like the one captured here. (Credit: Pan Xunbin/shutterstock)At least 50 million people worldwide live with epilepsy. For nearly one-third of those people, anti-seizure medications don’t work. Surgery to remove the part of the brain that causes epileptic fits is an option for some, but the intrusive treatment might not work. It could also lead to memory and language problems, among other complications. Now researchers from Stanford University have developed a noninvasive technique that could enable patients to know the outcome of such a surgery before it happens.“We can anesthetize tissue and see if the electrophysiological characteristics go away,” said Raag Airan, a neuroradiologist, who led the new research. “And at the same time, ask the patient if they can speak and remember.”Unprecedented PrecisionAiran and his team made this possible using ultrasound. In a study published Wednesday in the journal Neuron, the researchers show in rats that they can deliver an anesthetic drug to millimeter-sized regions of the brain using a focused beam of sound waves beyond the audible limit of human hearing. The approach could also help people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, the researchers say.In the new work, Airan and team used a drug called propofol to anesthetize the part of the brain that processes visual information known as the primary visual cortex. The anesthetic is also sometimes used as an antiepilepsy medication. To deliver the compound to the visual cortex, the researchers first created a biodegradable nanoparticle cage for the drug. When the right frequency of ultrasound hits the nanoparticle, its liquid-filled center vibrates until it ruptures and releases the drug.Airan and team injected the propofol nanoparticles into the rats’ bloodstream, which then circulated throughout the body. But, the nanoparticle cages only released the anesthetic where the researchers delivered small bursts of ultrasound.“Where we zap with the ultrasound is exactly where we anesthetize the brain,” Airan said. “When we’re zapping is when the brain is anesthetized and when we stop zapping, the brain recovers.”Treatment TranslationThe nanoparticle cages are less than half the size of fat-based microbubbles other groups have used to deliver compounds to the brain with ultrasound. They’re also made from ingredients the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has already approved. Airan hopes to translate the technology to clinical use in the next few years, saying the approach has a range of potential uses including delivering chemotherapies.“At this point, we’re limited by people, time and money to explore these options,” Airan said. “But we’re not limited by the technology. There’s kind of a million and one things to do.”last_img read more

Harleys electric hog targets selfietaking green hipsters

first_imgAfter a 10-minute test ride on surface streets, riders park the bikes. Before they get off, a Harley photographer takes a picture and hands them an access code so they can download the picture and post it on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram. Next, they’re shuttled to a video camera to record instant impressions and then are asked to fill out a 10-minute survey on an iPad.Sample questions include “What words come to mind when you first rolled the throttle?” and “How would you describe the bike’s look, sound and feel?” The survey also asks how much a buyer would expect to pay, starting from “below $15,000” to as high as “$35,000 and above.”For all the “awesomes” and “wows” collected on the commentaries, there also are criticisms: a desire for more battery range, for example, or on-board charging ports and storage. Several riders said the price would need to be near or below $15,000.Myburgh, who rides a 2011 Brammo electric bike, said he likes the bike’s sound, which he likens to the TIE fighter Darth Vader flies in the “Star Wars” movies. Myburgh said he appreciates the innovation and the risk Harley is taking by developing a bike so counter to its snarley-Harley roots.“You’re going to get guys saying it’s not a true Harley- Davidson — it’s not air-cooled, it doesn’t make a lot of noise and it doesn’t fall apart,” Myburgh said. “But you have to embrace the future at some point.” Follow @ModernMotoGuy as he shares his 1st electric motorcycle journey with the world aboard #ProjectLiveWire.— Harley-Davidson (@harleydavidson) July 8, 2014 While motorcycles are already quite efficient — most Harleys go 30 to 60 miles on a gallon of gasoline — Myburgh said he won’t own a Harley unless they make one that doesn’t require gas.The electric bike’s battery range is about 53 miles and the engine can be operated in three modes: sport, power and range. There are no gears to shift through, so the prototype rides as easily as a moped, albeit one that’s frighteningly quick. Acceleration goes from zero to 60 miles (97 kilometers) per hour in under four seconds. It has foot and hand brakes and also slows quickly when the throttle is released.If Harley does go green, it’ll compete against a handful of companies, including Brammo, based in Talent, Ore., and Zero Motorcycles, based in Scotts Valley, Calif. Global sales of electric motorcycles are expected to grow slightly, according to a report from Navigant Research, to 1.4 million annually in 2023 from 1.2 million this year.For much of its 111-year history, Harley sold choppers as fast as it could to riders it knew well: wealthy, middle-aged American white men. The recession shook that up.Revenue in 2009 fell almost a quarter from a year earlier. Wandell, hired from auto-parts maker Johnson Controls, cut costs and pushed Harley to try to expand its customer base to women, younger drivers, non-whites and non-Americans.The company is projected to increase sales 7 percent to $5.6 billion this year, based on analysts’ estimates compiled by Bloomberg. After receiving 25 percent of its revenue from outside the U.S. in 2006, the company forecasts 40 percent of sales this year will be in foreign markets, which is where more than half of its dealerships are located.Harley’s stock, which dropped each of two years before Wandell arrived, has risen annually since. So far this year the stock has declined 9.6 percent to $62.56.The electric bike program is an extension of how Harley also has changed the way it develops motorcycles, using focus groups and clinics and opening test-runs to a wide circle of consumers and dealers. Earlier results hit the market last year with a new Touring line, equipped with voice-activated and touch-screen GPS systems, and Street bikes, Harley’s first lightweight motorcycles in decades.The electric version “is going to appeal to a whole new set of customers,” Wandell said. “It’s getting folks thinking about our products that maybe typically wouldn’t have.”David Hood, a 46-year-old from Old Hickory, Tenn., came to Boswell’s dealership not to scout a potential purchase, but to have a peek into what may be the future. He’s old-school Harley, riding a 2008 Street Bob and loving the potato-potato rumble of its V-twin engine.“It’s cool,” Smith said. “Today’s world is the world of innovation. Everything’s changing.”© 2014, Bloomberg News Facebook Comments SOUTHFIELD, Michigan – Tyler Dean has the jeans, jacket and beard that place him squarely in the target market for Harley-Davidson. Another draw for the motorcycle maker: Dean has a social media account, and he knows how to use it.Harley, the manufacturer of road hogs famous for roaring throttles, said in June it’s considering selling a relatively quiet, electric motorcycle. It’s now showcasing the bikes on a 30-city tour to seek feedback and drum up interest among people like Dean, who cares about the environment and can spread the word about his likes on social media like Twitter and Instagram.“Businesswise, this is smart,” said Dean, 31, who stopped riding after he got married three years ago and is starting to feel the itch again. “I’m going to take my photo of me sitting on this and post it to everyone I know. I’m not going to post me sitting in a Toyota.” While the idea of an e-hog has risks, he said “if Harley is doing it, that means it’s a viable thing.”The tour is part of a push by Chief Executive Officer Keith Wandell to make the once-insular company more open and ensure its perch atop a U.S. motorcycle market that researcher IBISWorld pegs at $6.9 billion, with Harley getting about half. The company views electric power as a way to reduce emissions and prepare for a time when petroleum-based fuel may be more scarce. It’s also a way to appeal to younger, affluent consumers who want a clean way to get around in style without dropping $100,000 or more on a Tesla Model S.Harley, based in Milwaukee, wants “to make sure we’re not missing something” as the tour continues in more U.S. cities and Europe and Canada next year, Wandell said in an interview. “We don’t want to come to market with something that falls short of somebody’s expectation.”Like Dean, 25-year-old Ben Myburgh isn’t in Harley’s current core market, which skews older and wealthier. He is, however, the type of customer the company wants to win.Myburgh races electric bikes in his spare time and signed up in June to be in the first group of five riders at the start of the tour’s stop in Nashville, at Boswell’s Harley-Davidson dealership. The Nissan quality engineer came prepared: With his padded riding jacket and pants, he was the only member of the quintet not clad in blue jeans and black shirtsleeves. He wore a Google Glass headset, which he used to film his test run.Social media has been a big part of Harley’s marketing effort. Project Livewire, as the bike is called, garnered 340 million media impressions as of mid-July. To help fuel that, test riders are encouraged to work their networks.“Email and social media gave HOGs a louder voice and more access,” Erik Gordon, a professor at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, said in an interview, referring to the motorcycle maker’s enthusiasts. “To Harley’s credit, they see that as an asset, not a threat.” Related posts:A Paris climate change talks primer for Costa Rica Embattled ride-sharing Uber faces global crackdown US inflames debate on climate finance with plan for UN talks What Paris climate talks have accomplishedlast_img read more

Solomon Airlines SIVB join forces to stage major Australian tou

first_imgSolomon Airlines & SIVB join forces to stage major Australian tourism pushSolomon Airlines and the Solomon Islands Visitors Bureau have combined resources to stage what represents one of the biggest ever Solomon Islands tourism promotions staged in Australia. Intended to play a two edge role in promoting both the national carrier’s soon to commence Sydney-Honiara direct service and also encouraging Australians to holiday in the Solomon Islands, a six week Sydney media campaign combining print, radio and online media kicks off this week. The road show got off to a cracking start on Monday night when more than 40 of Queensland’s senior travel management, Brisbane media guests and VIPs crowded into Brisbane’s Hotel Urban on Monday night to meet the combined airline and national tourist office team. Dignitaries in attendance included the Solomon Islands High Commission’s Ms Jenny Barile, and Solomon Islands community representative Miller Apusi.SIVB chairman Wilson Ne’e, SIVB CEO Josefa Tuamoto, Solomon Airlines head office marketing division manager Colin Sigimanu and Solomon Airlines’ regional director Australia, New Zealand and Asia, Victor Sharan also attended the event. Target audience for the NSW media campaign is 4.5 million Sydneysiders and a further close on 700,000 people residing in Wollongong, the Blue and the Central Coast.An estimated 200,000 motorists are also expected to hear the promotion every day on their car radios while commuting from Wollongong, the Central Coast and the Blue Mountains to Sydney during the campaign.The radio campaign also offers listeners the opportunity to win one of 10 Solomon Island holidays for two while the print media advertising – plus a giant billboard located at Sydney domestic airport – will promote special holiday packages.The airline and national tourist office are adding further profile to the promotion via a series of top level media, travel industry and consumer events taking place in Sydney, Parramatta, Wollongong, and Gosford.Highlights of each event will be performances given by the Hageulu Panpipers from Isabel Province.The group will also perform on Sydney’s famous Circular Quay in front of the iconic Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge as well as at one of the biggest shopping malls in Sydney, Westfield Parramatta, which attracts some 800,000 shoppers on a weekly basis.Pictured – the SIVB team at the Brisbane event.

which riders can use an app on their phones to pay a nominal fee to unlock a bike and ride to their destination where it locks for the next riderThe new rules which still require final approval by the

them easily locatable There are parking rules—upright and not against trees for example—and fines for violatorsPete Haga a senior city staffer has long been working on the question of a new bike-share system He said at least one of two companies City Hall has been speaking with—Spin and LimeBike—could submit applications for operating permits soon"If an application (for a permit) came in I would

"It was a very good discussion and we were very cordial to each other Hopefully we can still get something worked out"Suda said she was not surprised however by the board’s decision to reject the higher amount"When districts are in a hardship for money of course they want to keep as much money in their district as they can We all do" she saidThe Hillsboro School Board will discuss the issue again at its regular meeting Thursday but Suda was uncertain if any progress would be made"I’m not sure with all the new findings . the board is going to have to decide if it moves forward or if it

Gopi’s performance (2:1525) can be appreciated only if one knows his back story Gopi lost his father when he was a toddler and he stayed in a per-metric hostel for scheduled caste students The physical education teacher spotted his natural talent during an athletics meet at a government high school Vijayi was not only a coach but also treated the boy who never shirked from training hard like her son “During the school holidays the hostel would also be shut but to ensure that Gopi’s training did not suffer I asked him to stay at my house I could ensure that he had a proper diet and monitored his training The bond between us grew and soon he was part of the family” Vijayi says Training Gopi and watching him go from strength to strength also helped Vijayi to keep her spirits up

rootha re which had composers Vishal-Shekhar at the helm had Pakistani singer Javed Bashir’s powerful vocals merging with some hard-hitting electric guitar riffs — a rousing blend of sounds and styles A thumping score on similar lines is what Akira AR Murugadoss’s Hindi remake of his Tamil thriller Mouna Guru could’ve gone for We can do with dialled back and deconstructed experiments in the case of this bright composer-duo What’s hard to digest however is them making a soundtrack that sounds exactly like so many others floating around Be it their last outing Sultan or Akira the duo hasn’t evolved in terms of their musical identity and has come up with a combination of some average and below average tunes The album opens with Rajj rajj ke that comes in three versions While the original song has been sung by Indian Idol Junior runner-up Nahid Afrin and Vishal Dadlani another is an auto-tuned version with Sonakshi Sinha’s voice and a remix The prelude followed by Afrin’s voice is promising as she sings to a constant synth chord followed by powerful riffs and drumbeats The 14-year-old’s delivery of vendetta and angst in a full-bodied melody is impressive and the hookline begins to seep in after a while to turn this into a relatively fitting centrepiece Sonakshi Sinha’s version of the same piece is slightly pitchy but quite on the surface The remix version which just makes the existing melody faster could have been completely done away with Then comes one of the better melodies from the album Purza the lyrics of which feature an interesting line “Mai purza tera na aadha pauna tera” Arijit Singh moves away from his usual style to deliver a breezy melody A guitar is paired with the accordion and drums and has him hooting scatting changing his voice texture and making it move It is somewhat sonically absorbing mostly because we aren’t used to him attempting something like this But the problem with the album is that even its better songs aren’t any more than ordinary when put in the larger soundscape Kehkasha tu meri has Shekhar behind the microphone and the duo reusing one of their old tunes — Haravali pakhare from the Marathi film Balak Palak It’s a monotonous melody that is neither emotionally compelling nor cohesive This is followed by Baadal sung by Sunidhi Chauhan The song an average melody works only because of what Sunidhi Chauhan does to it Her cinematic voice has the power to transform something transient into transcendental It has a slow-building structure with guitars pianos and synths but sticks to the same drum loop throughout It’s sung well but is unlikely to stick The album isn’t revelatory in any manner Vishal-Shekhar need to re-look into their current compositions and not be afraid to nosedive into something new weird

April 22 2014 12:13 am Related News Mainstream BJP must acknowledge its responsibility to confront its hate-mongering fringe In the second half of this election the voices of majoritarian triumphalism in the BJP’s campaign though scattered appear to be getting louder After its Lok Sabha candidate from Bihar Giriraj Singh said that those opposed to Narendra Modi should be sent to Pakistan the BJP’s top leadership has not publicly reprimanded him or taken any action against him In the event the message that is sent out is that such “fringe” opinions are free to do their work unchecked Even Pravin Togadia the VHP’s old face is back at it encouraging a Hindu gathering to forcibly take over Muslim property armed with stones tyres and tomatoes For all that Togadia and his ilk have been sidelined in Gujarat by Modi they seem to be empowered anew by Modi’s ascendance in the national arena The onus is on the BJP to disprove the perception that its vote-maximising strategy involves employing several vocabularies depending on the context and their utility This is an old charge against the party that has been renewed in this election In Uttar Pradesh its lieutenants and footsoldiers have used the language of communal incitement Party general secretary and Modi’s trusted assistant Amit Shah has invoked themes of revenge and self-respect in Muzaffarnagar where the memory of such violence is still raw Meanwhile as prime-ministerial candidate Modi himself speaks of growth and the Gujarat model avoiding a forthright engagement with the charges of 2002 but he is not above making references to cow slaughter and meat exports to receptive audiences When asked in interviews about why he refuses to wear a skullcap he says he does not believe in gestures of “appeasement” though he has been ready to wear the headgear of other (non-Muslim) communities and switch his idiom to appeal to them when needed Many of these incomplete responses and conspicuous silences would appear to draw a continuum from Modi to Togadia to the RSS — regardless of the admittedly fraught relationships among them The RSS has recently released pamphlets exhorting Hindus to vote and make history unless they wanted to be consigned to history themselves The BJP’s pragmatic establishment recognises that “India has changed” and pledges to put “India first” and not make instrumental use of minorities like the “secular” parties do But their protestations will carry little credibility unless they also acknowledge the mainstream BJP’s responsibility to confront its fringe If the Modi-led BJP comes to power backed by these forces even if he has the best intentions it will be difficult to contain these violent energies It is important that the BJP distance itself from the voices of hate
