A Wall Against Drug Trafficking

first_img Diálogo: Beyond Central America, how are you working with other countries in our hemisphere to counteract transnational organized crime? Brig. Gen. Adolfo Zepeda Martínez: Nicaragua has developed an idea that we’re putting into practice and that we call the “Containment Wall.” It’s not a wall of stone and concrete; it’s an idea. By means of this idea, we’re trying to keep drug-trafficking elements away from the coasts, so that they don’t spread across our borders. What we’re trying to do [with this idea] is to have controls along the coasts, at the border, and in our airspace, so that drug-trafficking elements or criminal elements remain as far as possible from our territory, because Nicaragua is neither a producer nor a consumer. Nicaragua is like a bridge that drugs cross through any of its routes, by land, by sea, or by air. So we’re trying to do our part. How can we do it? By isolating them, so that they don’t penetrate Nicaragua, and that way other authorities with more resources, such as the United States, for example, can have more control at sea, in the air. Brig. Gen. Zepeda: We share quite extensive land borders with our sister Republic of Honduras, along the Coco River to the Cape of Gracias a Dios, and on the south with our sister Republic of Costa Rica, from Naranjo to San Juan de Nicaragua. We also have two broad coastlines, on the Caribbean and the Pacific. In the framework of the relationship that we have with Honduras, we’ve moved forward with regard to land during meetings between border commanders. These take place periodically. Every two or three months, the commanders of Honduran border units and the commanders of Nicaraguan border units meet in a specified location of common interest to both, sometimes in Nicaragua, other times in Honduras. There they exchange information, agree on coordinating some of the operations at a given location, and establish lines of communication that have proved to be important for greater control of these borders, which happen to be porous borders in some ways, due to their length, to the small number of personnel the Armies have available there, and the few means of transportation. Brig. Gen. Zepeda: Well, the commander in chief and the president have decided to create new units. Among them, we have created a battalion of Marines, who are going to have their base in Puerto Sandino. We’ll possibly inaugurate it in the course of this year. This battalion is going to be in charge of developing a Marine force that can have better results along the coasts, on lakes and inland waters. Nicaragua is a country of lakes and volcanoes, and we also have inland waters. We have two large lakes: Lake Managua (Xolotlán) and Lake Nicaragua (Cocibolca). We’ve found that drug-trafficking elements penetrate our southern border through the waters of Lake Cocibolca to permeate our national territory. The Marine battalion is going to support the inland-waters detachment, which is the one responsible for covering the lakes, to also confront the threats, not only along the coasts and at sea, but also on our inland waters. There’s going to be a force of approximately 500 personnel. The subject of the land border is still pending, but we’re already developing the corresponding controls along the border. We believe that as the fight against drug trafficking is waged in Guatemala, in Honduras, in El Salvador, in Belize, these elements may want to shift to other territories. So we’re paying attention to that phenomenon and building our strength in some places to prevent these elements from coming into our territory from the north and from the south. Diálogo: In practical terms, what measures are you taking to implement this idea? Brig. Gen. Zepeda: The Nicaraguan Army is part of the Conference of Central American Armed Forces (CFAC, for its Spanish acronym), in which we have different levels of cooperation. We also collaborate in different areas with the U.S. Southern Command, especially in the area of training for our officers, through CNIES [the Cooperating Nation Information Exchange System], in the transmission of information about the tracking of illegal movements by air and by sea, which can enable the interception or seizure of drugs along the coast, and following up on the possible illegal incursion of planes into our territory, among others at the country-to-country level. This collaborative effort stems from the document that the Nicaraguan president signed with corresponding U.S. authorities, a document called “Fighting Illicit Trafficking at Sea.” This is a legal document, through which Nicaragua receives the support of the U.S. Coast Guard, by radio, or in whatever way may be already established. Information is given to the Nicaraguan Navy, or vice versa. Diálogo: In protecting its borders, what kind of collaboration does Nicaragua have with its Central American neighbors? Brig. Gen. Zepeda: For me, it’s been a very positive experience. I’ve been able to listen to military leaders, all the experiences that they have, first hand, in person. We believe that if we’re successful with operations conducted at the national level, we can succeed in building a good synergy that can make it possible to improve regional results. We hope that this effort doesn’t end at the national level, but that it transforms into a regional effort. General Douglas Fraser [commander, U.S. Southern Command] has said the same thing, that he hopes that this strategy will become a regional strategy to fight these illicit activities and improve the results.

By Dialogo October 01, 2012 Diálogo: During CENTSEC 2012, there were references to Nicaragua’s implementation of a homegrown initiative for the fight against drug trafficking. Could you explain to us what this is about? When Brigadier General Adolfo Zepeda Martínez speaks about Nicaragua, he does so in an almost poetic tone. The head of the Intelligence and Counterintelligence Directorate of the nation’s Army tells of a “land of lakes and volcanoes” and traverses its geography, mentioning locations by name, as if he were enjoying an imaginary trip through each part of his country. In April, during the Central American Security Conference (CENTSEC 2012), sponsored by the U.S. Southern Command, Brig. Gen. Zepeda traveled to El Salvador to represent Nicaragua. On that occasion, during an interview granted to Diálogo, the military officer talked about the “Containment Wall,” a national strategy that seeks to keep drug traffickers within bounds, far from Nicaragua’s lakes, coasts and borders. Brig. Gen. Zepeda: At this time, we’re participating in Operation Martillo, which is being led by the Southern Command and JIATF–S (the Joint Interagency Task Force–South). Practically all the Central American countries and others, even European ones, are participating in that operation. We’ve also been participating in that effort with the Southern Command when they invite us to take part in military exercises, such as Panamax, for example.

Paratroopers Hold Multinational Jump

first_imgBy Kay Valle/Diálogo April 18, 2018 Paratroopers took over the skies of the central Honduran region of Comayagua for a multinational jump. More than 100 paratroopers came together at Soto Cano Air Base, headquarters of U.S. Southern Command’s (SOUTHCOM) Joint Task Force Bravo (JTF-Bravo) for the annual jump dubbed Flying Iguana 2018. The U.S. Army 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), in cooperation with the Honduran Army, through its 2nd Air Transport Infantry Battalion, hosted the February 24th event. Flying Iguana counted with 102 expert paratroopers from the United States, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Panama. “Each person was selected for this training at least a month ahead of time,” Honduran Army Colonel Jesús Jeovanny Moreno Cruz, spokesperson for the 2nd Air Transport Infantry Battalion, told Diálogo. “[They were chosen] abiding by the standards and regulations of a good paratrooper: discipline, judgment, and courage.” The purpose of the training is to enhance participants’ skills, share new techniques, and improve the field of jumping. The multinational event, which paratroopers look forward to, is also an opportunity to strengthen bonds of cooperation and camaraderie among partner nations in the Americas. Essential training Over the course of four days, participants trained for the event through various exercises, including physical training and mock jumps. “Even though participants were chosen for their experience, pre-jump preparation was essential, as soldiers had not previously worked together,” explained Honduran Army Lieutenant Colonel Carlos Fernando Torres Menjívar, deputy director of the Honduran Armed Forces Parachute School, who participated in Flying Iguana 2018. The colonel counts with 250 jumps throughout his career, including several international jumps. “[We reinforced] training for free fall to prevent fractures, jumps from 34 feet and practiced techniques to exit the aircraft,” Lt. Col. Torres explained. “[We practiced making] a good exit, checking the canopy of the chute, always looking around during descent, and preparing for landing—and also taking emergency actions inside the aircraft.” Participants also received academic instruction to complete the jumps safely. Service members studied different types of parachutes, the aircraft to be used for the jump, and jump zones, among other information. “All the training we received was given in a briefing in the jump zone, getting to learn about the helicopter for the jump and the voice commands lead jumpers use,” Lt. Col. Torres said. “In addition, [the training included] emergency actions before, during, and after the exercise.” The Flying Iguana jump Participants used round, static-line T-10 and MC1 parachutes manufactured in the United States. The exercise had logistics support from JTF-Bravo’s 1st Battalion, 228th Aviation Regiment, which not only facilitated the location but also provided a Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter for the jumps. Paratroopers completed their jumps from 07:00 to 11:00 hours, jumping from an altitude of more than 900 meters. Depending on weather variables, the weight of each jumper, and the type of parachute being used, the descent took between 2 and 4 minutes. “It’s important to mention that this kind of military training helps the Central American region forge brotherly bonds of cooperation,” Col. Moreno said. “[The exercise] reinforces those capacities, as parachuting is used to get to remote areas in support of humanitarian aid operations.” The multinational exercise was first held in 1997. In 2002, the exercise took on the name Flying Iguana in honor of a tree-borne lizard species at risk of extinction in the Central American region. The 2008 event saw the highest level of participation, with experts from 17 nations across the Americas (Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, the United States, and Uruguay). According to Col. Moreno, the 2019 edition will include for the first time female personnel from the Honduran Army. The elite paratrooper exercise ended with a wing exchange between partner nations in affirmation of their brotherhood. The experience, Lt. Col. Torres said, left behind “a good training and work relationship with the nations of Central America. We need to spread that for future training events.”last_img read more

CVS to Workers: Tell Us Your Weight or Pay $600

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York CVS Pharmacy is requesting that employees disclose their weight or pay a surcharge.CVS workers using the company’s health care plan will have to disclose their weight or pay up.The company’s new health care plan, which CVS is touting as a way to encourage workers to be healthier, tells employees to visit their primary care physician and have their height, weight, body fat percentage, blood pressure and pulse recorded, among other personal data, or risk paying $50 a month for medical coverage.“Avoid the $600 surcharge!” CVS wrote on its employee benefits website.The health screening form, which the Press obtained from a CVS employee, must be completed and signed by the employee seeking medical coverage as well as the worker’s physician.“Forms will NOT be accepted without both parties’ signatures,” it states.“We want to help our employees to be as healthy as they can be, which is why we decided to implement this plan,” CVS said in an emailed statement. “In fact, we have been working for a number of years on ways they can improve their health through preventive measures. Health care programs that incent employees to be healthier are not new. Many companies around the country already have plans similar to the one we are implementing.”The statement goes on to say that 79 percent of “large employers have health assessments incorporated into their programs,” according to the National Business Group on Health.“To encourage a higher level of participation in our wellness review, we reviewed best practices and determined that an additional cost for those who do not complete the review was the most effective way to incent our colleagues to improve their health care and manage health costs,” CVS added.One CVS employee still steaming over the new health care plan told the Press that this is just another ploy for the company to pad its pockets.“I don’t want anybody knowing my personal information,” said the worker, who asked to remain anonymous. “It’s not going to change people’s lifestyle.”The six-year CVS employee said she feels “violated” and noted that her fellow employees are complying with the new plan out of “fear that they’re going to lose their jobs.”“It’s none of their business!” she blasted.CVS’ plan was also criticized by one patient privacy advocate who described it as “coercive and blunt.”“Many employers want to do something for their workers, but very few of them are stupid enough to say give us the information and sign this form and say it’s voluntary,” Dr. Deborah Peel, founder of Patient Privacy Rights, told NBC.last_img read more

Gobernador Wolf: El compromiso de la Guardia Nacional de Pennsylvania viene con gran sacrificio, tanto Nacional como Internacional

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter August 21, 2020 National Issues,  Press Release,  Weather Safety Guardia de PA está lista para la temporada de huracanes El Gobernador Tom Wolf reconoció hoy los increíbles sacrificios hechos por los miembros de la Guardia Nacional de Pennsylvania (PNG, por sus siglas en inglés) durante las recientes respuestas para apoyar el clima severo y las emergencias de COVID-19 en el Estado.“Como la segunda Guardia Nacional más grande del país, Pennsylvania es una Guardia extremadamente activa que a menudo sirve en el extranjero protegiendo nuestras fronteras de la agresión extranjera, pero también juega un papel extremadamente importante sirviendo a nivel nacional”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “El nivel de compromiso de nuestra Guardia solo es superado por el sacrificio personal que estos hombres y mujeres hacen al estar lejos de sus seres queridos y ponerse en peligro para proteger a los demás”.La PNG responde de manera rutinaria a emergencias domésticas, a veces en otros estados, pero a menudo aquí mismo en Pennsylvania. Las responsabilidades de PNG durante estas emergencias incluyen: búsqueda y rescate; distribución de alimentos, suministros y equipos; transportar a los trabajadores de atención médica críticos a las instalaciones de atención médica; ayudar a evacuar y transportar ciudadanos a refugios; limpiar caminos de escombros; y preparación para la recuperación después de la tormenta.Más recientemente, miembros del PNG del Equipo de Rescate Acuático en Helicópteros de Pennsylvania (PA-HART, por sus siglas en inglés) ayudaron a rescatar a dos automovilistas varados en el agua en rápido aumento en el condado de Berks durante las inundaciones causadas por la tormenta tropical Isaías. Además del rescate, un helicóptero Chinook CH-47 de la Guardia de Pennsylvania y miembros de la tripulación acompañados por miembros de PA-HART ayudaron a buscar a una persona desaparecida en el río Schuylkill en Philadelphia. Un total de 100 miembros de PNG respondieron durante la tormenta Isaías.La PNG también se encontró en un tipo de emergencia doméstica muy diferente en los últimos meses, al lado de los socorristas de primera línea y los proveedores de atención médica de Pennsylvania para ayudar a mantener a las personas seguras durante el COVID-19. Si bien la mayor parte de Pennsylvania sufrió un distanciamiento social durante la pandemia, cientos de miembros de PNG se desplegaron en todo el estado para ayudar con una variedad de necesidades emergentes, incluida la dotación de personal en hogares de ancianos y la capacitación en PPE; ayudar en los sitios de prueba del condado; levantamiento de estaciones médicas; y trabajar en bancos de alimentos.“En un momento de incertidumbre, frente a un tipo de enemigo completamente nuevo, la Guardia Nacional de Pennsylvania estuvo a la altura de su eslogan ‘Vivimos aquí, entrenamos aquí, servimos aquí’”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Pennsylvania llamó y sin dudarlo, la Guardia Nacional respondió, dejando atrás a su familia y poniendo sus carreras en espera. Miles de ciudadanos de Pennsylvania están sanos y seguros gracias a este sacrificio desinteresado”.View this information in English.center_img Gobernador Wolf: El compromiso de la Guardia Nacional de Pennsylvania viene con gran sacrificio, tanto Nacional como Internacionallast_img read more

UK industry digests minimum income test in ECJ pensions guarantee ruling

first_imgEarlier this month Edmund Truell, founder of commercial consolidator Pension Superfund and former chair of the London Pension Fund Authority, said the Superfund estimated a potential cost to the UK of over £160bn (€187bn) as well as the potential forced closure of all UK defined benefit funds.Today Superfund CEO Luke Webster argued that although the ECJ had not ruled that 100% of benefits must always be paid, “the administrative cost is likely to be very significant, and an increased PPF levy will place further burden on the resources available to the pensions system as a whole”.‘Pragmatic’At the PLSA, director of policy and research Nigel Peaple described today’s ruling as “a pragmatic solution,” an assessment that was echoed by David Everett, partner and head of pensions research at consultancy LCP, who welcomed the judges taking “a sensible approach”.Their take was that, from a PPF financial perspective, the ruling represented a relief.“[I]t seems likely that many people in the PPF would be above the minimum income allowed,” said Peaple, although he warned the PPF would need to carry out detailed analysis before there could be certainty about the impact of the judgement on the liabilities of the PPF and on UK pensions.He noted there could be a shortfall in PPF’s funding, which could result in higher levies for pension schemes.“Compared to expectations, the administrative challenge is greater and the funding challenge probably much less.”Nigel Peaple, director of policy and research, PLSAEarlier this week the PPF confirmed its levy estimate for 2020/21 would be £620m, and IPE understands it will not be changing this as a result of this week’s ruling. A PPF spokesperson said: “The recent ECJ judgment in the case of PSV v Gunther Bauer has restated that, as a minimum, every individual must receive at least 50% of their accrued benefits. We consider that the implementation methodology we announced following the ECJ’s judgment in Hampshire, which will make sure that all our members receive at least 50% of the value of their accrued benefits, meets this requirement.“There are other details of the judgment that we’ll need to work through with the Department for Work and Pensions.” Anna Rogers, senior partner at ARC Pensions Law, said the financial impact on the PPF would be mitigated but that the minimum income test “looks like a nightmare to implement for the PPF”.Peaple put it this way: “Compared to expectations prior to the ruling, the administrative challenge is greater and the funding challenge probably much less.”This article was updated on 20 December with additional comments from the PPF. In a keenly anticipated pension guarantee ruling the European Court of Justice (ECJ) today rejected a previous argument that all defined benefit pension rights must be protected on employer insolvency, which had led to speculation UK DB employers could be faced with a huge new bill.In a judgement in the case of the Pension-Sicherungs-Verein v Günther Bauer, the ECJ instead ruled that the current EU legal requirement that individuals should be entitled to at least 50% of their benefits still stood as long as this level of compensation would not put them at risk of living below the poverty line.As explained by the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA), in the UK many people had thought the ruling might spell a requirement for the country’s pension lifeboat fund to increase compensation to 100% of benefits in all cases, potentially with ensuing “enormous new costs” for employers and possibly the government.The Pension Protection Fund (PPF) provides 100% of defined benefits to members already drawing their pension when the sponsor goes insolvent, and 90% to those who are not yet retired.last_img read more

Senate Passes Massive $2 Trillion Stimulus Package

first_img(Washington, DC) — Financial help for struggling Americans is slowly moving through Congress.The Senate is sending a roughly $2-trillion dollar stimulus package to the House after passing it last night. The bill will send cash to businesses and individuals to help keep the economy going during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Most Americans who make less than $75,000 a year will get a $1200 check.Families will also get an additional $500 for each child. There is also money set aside for small business loans and it expands unemployment insurance for workers. However, if those companies do not lay employees off, those loans will be forgiven. There is also money set aside for small business loans and the expansion of unemployment insurance for workers. However, if those companies do not lay employees off, those loans will be forgiven. There are additional funds to help the health care system deal with the pandemic, and money to loan big businesses like the air and cruise lines that have been hit hard by the coronavirus crisis.The Senate moved quickly, putting together the largest stimulus package in the nation’s history in about five days. The fate of the bill in the House is unknown. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has suggested trying to pass it by unanimous consent, since most members are out of town and the body is in recess. However, some members of Congress have raised doubts about the bill and only one “no” vote could derail it. Getting the House back together quickly during a pandemic with many cities and states in lock down might be difficult.The House is expected to vote on the bill Friday.last_img read more

Kobelt falls to freshman stud Loeb in Syracuse’s 7-0 loss to North Carolina

first_img Published on March 30, 2014 at 7:31 pm Contact Ryan: rlraigro@syr.edu After battling back and forth for the entire second set, Maddie Kobelt won three straight points to give herself three chances to win the set against the No. 1 ranked women’s tennis player in the country, Jamie Loeb.Unfortunately for Kobelt, Loeb just executed the big points better. She would save the three straight set points Kobelt had to send it to deuce, and then save another set point at deuce before closing the game out.From there, Loeb failed to lose another game, breaking Kobelt’s serve and then holding on to win the tight second set 7-5 and the match 6-0, 7-5. For the day, No. 8 North Carolina (19-3, 8-1 Atlantic Coast)) defeated Syracuse (3-10, 3-5) 7-0 Sunday at Drumlins Tennis Club.As the match ended, the crowd gave Kobelt a standing ovation for her efforts against Loeb, although it came in defeat.“She came up with some great returns,” Kobelt said. “She did great with the pressure. Even when I had the chance to break her at 5-4, she came up with the big shots at the right time. That’s what makes her above everyone else.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTo save those three set points, it took everything Loeb had. Down 4-5, love-40, Loeb hit a great passing shot as Kobelt approached the net. Kobelt employed the same strategy on the next point, hitting a volley as she approached the net, but Loeb was able to hit a passing shot that clipped the tape on the net before whizzing past Kobelt. To save the last of the three straight set points, Loeb hit a serve so big Kobelt could not place her return in play.After battling back to draw the game even at deuce, Loeb handed Kobelt another chance to take the set by double faulting. But again Loeb would not allow Kobelt to finish her opportunity, hitting another passing shot over Kobelt’s head as she approached that clipped the baseline and fell in play. Loeb would not allow Kobelt another opportunity, hitting a serve that drew a long return followed by an ace that led her to shout, “Let’s go!”“Jamie played great today,” SU interim head coach Shelley George said. “I give her credit. She is a great player. She does have that No. 1 ranking behind her. Maddie played a great match today and I’m really proud of her effort.”After failing to finish her set points and take the match to a third set, Kobelt struggled. At love all, Kobelt netted an easy put-away overhead and at 15-all, netted an easy put-away volley after a strong serve. From there, Loeb was just too good. She hit a forehand passing shot on the straight run after a volley by Kobelt that zoomed right past Kobelt and gave her break point. Kobelt would approach down 30-40, but Loeb’s passing shots carried too much power, forcing Kobelt to make the error and give Loeb the deciding break.“When the pressure was on she came up with some great shots,” Kobelt said. “And I missed some opportunities as well.”Before the second set started, the match appeared like it would be a routine blowout for one of the best women’s players in the nation. Loeb absolutely dominated the first set, taking it 6-0 and barely allowing Kobelt to win any points.Kobelt’s strategy to keep approaching and rely on her volley game worked much more effectively in the second set and slowed down Loeb’s momentum. She also got her first-serve percentage numbers up, hitting much more powerful and better-placed first serves throughout the second set.Loeb went from running away with the match to facing set points against her seemingly out of nowhere — but she edged the senior and lived up to her growing pedigree as one of the nation’s best players. “I executed my game more, and getting my first-serve percentage up,” Kobelt said. “I didn’t make enough first serves to be effective in the first set. And I think she was grooving in on the second serve and she had her confidence up.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

David Leonhardt talks ‘nerd journalism’

first_imgDavid Leonhardt, the editor of  “The Upshot,” a New York Times website focusing on politics and public policy, visited the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism Tuesday to discuss how mathematics is mixing with the news industry.Roundtable discussion · On Tuesday, David Leonhardt met with students in the Geoffrey Cowan Forum in Annenberg. Leonhardt expressed to students the importance of reporters telling more than just a story. – Austin Vogel | Daily TrojanLeonhardt is at the forefront of the growing world of “nerd journalism,” a term he uses to describe a new way to convey news using data, analytics and statistics.“We are not shy about being nerdy,” Leonhardt said. “We all want to be the nerdiest.”He explained that the website’s goal is to improve clarity surrounding important events.“Our basic mission is to write about big, complicated events in a conversational way,” Leonhardt said. “We want to help people understand events they otherwise may have trouble comprehending.”Leonhardt started The Upshot at The New York Times to fill the void left by Nate Silver after he took his immensely popular FiveThirtyEight blog to ESPN.  Silver famously correctly predicted the winner of all 50 states in the 2012 presidential election, creating popular interest in data-driven journalism. The Upshot will now look to capitalize on this growing field by taking more unconventional routes to report news.“In order to give people information that they don’t already have, journalists now often need to go a level deeper,” Leonhardt said. “One of the ways to do that is to do nerd journalism. It is to go heavily into the numbers behind something, get really wonky about it and try to explain to people what is going on in a way an                     eleven-hundred word newspaper story cannot.”In an age where housing foreclosures and unemployment rates are staples on the front pages of newspapers across the country, Leonhardt and The Upshot want to ensure that anyone can interpret the news.“People want to understand the details and the numbers and the facts that they are surrounded by in a very deep way,” Leonhardt said.The Upshot will feature not only in-depth reporting and infographics, but also data-driven charts, tables and animations to help readers understand complex topics.“What we are doing is really nerdy stuff,”  Leonardt said. “Yet it is all meant to appeal to people who don’t have any sort of expertise, who don’t have any sort of degree in economics. I like to think of the audience for this type of journalism as really smart people who come into something knowing absolutely nothing.”The evolution of  “nerd journalism” forces the next generation of reporters and writers to do more than just tell a story, Leonhardt said.“I want an article to teach me something that I don’t already know,” Leonhardt said. “A lot of times, I don’t really care if you show me something showing that you covered a big story. What I’m looking for is something that can help me understand something even better. It’s writing a story that no one else has written.”last_img read more

Professor writes books on history of Nazis in Los Angeles

first_img“People want to know — how do we resist hate in America?” That’s what USC history professor Steven Ross said the appeal of his latest book was. Although the nonfiction historical work explores a spy group’s efforts to combat fascist groups in America in the mid-1900s, Ross said the ideas apply more generally to how hate becomes popular and how governments can be complicit in it. Titled Hitler in Los Angeles: How Jews Foiled Nazi Plots Against Hollywood and America, the book is set for release Tuesday. The work follows the journey of attorney Leon Lewis and the spy group he created to infiltrate and prevent fascist groups in Los Angeles from carrying out plots to kill Hollywood professionals and Jews living in the area.Writing on hate · Professor of history Steven Ross developed the idea for Hitler in Los Angeles: How Jews Foiled Nazi Plots Against Hollywood and America after he found reports at Cal State Northridge that documented fascist activity in Los Angeles.

So I said when I was finished with Hollywood Left and Right, I would go back to Northridge and try to figure out what the story was. So that’s what I did.”Ross started working on Hitler in Los Angeles in 2011, following the completion of his last book. According to Ross, he researched and wrote the book over the course of five years, finishing the manuscript in December 2016. At first, Ross had trouble piecing together Lewis’ story with the documents he found at Cal State Northridge because most information about the spy operation was kept secret. He finally made a breakthrough by returning to USC, where he found detailed papers kept by Joe Roos, who worked closely with Lewis in his spying operation, Ross said. “After reading 30 pages of [Roos’ papers], I knew exactly what the story was, because he explained exactly what was going on, and at that point I knew I had a thriller,” Ross said. “Not just a history book, but a thriller.”Beyond the fascinating nature of the content, Ross said he wrote the book because he has a personal history with the Nazis’ actions. “My parents are both Holocaust survivors,” Ross said. “My mother had been in Auschwitz, and my father in Dachau, and from childhood on, I wondered how all this could happen, and my childhood self asked, ‘Why didn’t Jews do more to fight [Adolf] Hitler?’”Throughout his research, however, Ross found that his question was a commonly held misconception about Jewish action against Nazism. Many historians, including Ross initially, believed American Jews didn’t do enough to fight Hitler’s actions. But the real problem, he realized, wasn’t Jewish complacency, but rather a lack of action on the part of the American government partly because of its preoccupation with combating communism at home.“I realized that I had been asking the wrong questions, as had many decades of historians,” Ross said. “What I found was that Jews were very active in combating Hitler … the real villain of this era isn’t Jewish complacency, but the American government and their obsession with finding ‘reds’ in America, and their virtual, total ignoring of Nazis and fascists in America.” Fighting fascism · History professor Steven Ross’ book details undercover spy operations to undermine fascist plots in California. Photo from Bloomsbury PublishingConversely, Ross said the people who spied for Lewis saw Jews not as a separate group, but as Americans. “[Of] the spies, the men and women who went to help Leon Lewis, only one was a Jew,” Ross said. “Everyone else was a Christian. And they believed they were fighting not on behalf of Jews, they were fighting on behalf of Americans. As far as they were concerned, the notion of the hyphenated American — the Jewish-American, the Catholic-American, the Black-American — the first part of the hyphen was an adjective, and what mattered was the noun, American, and they did not want to see one group attacking another group of Americans.”Even before publication, the book is gaining widespread attention. Ross’ work has been featured in The New Yorker and the Los Angeles Times. He attributes this attention to the presence of fascist groups in Los Angeles during WWII, which holds a stark similarity to the rise of modern-day hate groups. “It’s a story of what happens when hate groups move from the margins to the mainstream of American society, and when government authorities are either complacent or complicit in it,” Ross said. “I think my book is a warning. It’s both a story of the past and a warning of the present, because [what we see now is] not real Nazis but neo-Nazis, not Klan members but white supremacists.”last_img read more

Football: Badgers’ trio looks to add next chapter of ‘Running-Back U’

first_imgWisconsin men’s football didn’t have a 1,000-yard rusher last season for the first time since 2008.After Heisman hopeful and potential first round pick Corey Clement suffered an early groin injury in week one’s blowout loss to Alabama, backups Taiwan Deal and Dare Ogunbowale were unable to carry the unanticipated load and fell flat during a mediocre season.The two amassed only 1,322 total yards and averaged a combined 3.8 yards per carry.While Clement recovered with enough time to play against Rutgers on Halloween, he finished the year with only 231 rushing yards and was forced to sit out the season finale at Minnesota for off-field disciplinary issues.Football: Clement cited for off-campus altercationThe miserable junior season for Wisconsin running back Corey Clement took another ugly turn Wednesday. According to Zach Heilprin of Read…The numbers were particularly atypical for a school that is frequently known for its legendary backfields, but the three returning backs remain unfazed by the expectations that come each season.“With Corey down last season and Dare and I vying for time, we all just became really close,” Deal said. “It’s a party every time we see each other now and we carry that fun off the field into our practice and work each week.”Wisconsin has never been a stranger to a two-back set, and has sported some of the most productive tandems college football has ever seen.That list is headlined by five straight years with John Clay and Montee Ball in 2010, Ball and James White from 2011-12, White and Melvin Gordon in 2013 and Gordon and Clement in 2014. Each duo racked up more than 2,600 yards on the ground and made up five of the top six most efficient two-back sets in Big Ten history.Despite all the success two running back offenses have had for the Badgers over the years, this close triangle of guys has a different feel. With Clement finally returning to health late in spring practice, a rare three-back set could emerge entering an especially brutal fall schedule.“We’re all brothers,” Clement said. “Whether it’s a good or a bad play, we hold each other accountable and work with each other to make it positive. No one guy thinks they’re higher than any other guy in the group and that makes it fun to be around.”Football: As spring winds down, quarterback battle heats upThe battle for the Wisconsin’s quarterback spot is in full swing this spring and remains one of the big question marks Read…The backs enter their second season under head running backs coach John Settle. Settle resumed his position at University of Wisconsin after a brief stint with the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns and University of Pittsburg before returning to Madison with current head coach Paul Chryst. Settle told ESPN’s Jesse Temple in March this year’s core really thought they were able to do the little things last season to help the Badgers get wins, and their close relationship will make them dangerous in the coming season.“Coach Settle does an excellent job of implementing both collegiate and NFL skills on and off the field,” Clement said. “He treats us like adults and that’s how we, as a unit, want to be treated. Whoever’s the freshman in the room is going to get treated like a senior and that’s the mentality he wants you to have.”Despite the lack of productivity a season ago, Clement’s absence might have been what this unit needed to reach the elite level associated with a typical Wisconsin backfield. The entire offensive line from last season is coming back and Chryst has finally built the power running unit he set out to establish in his return to Wisconsin.“I think we can be one of the best tandems in the country,” Deal said. “Three running backs that all have power and speed; we can do some really good things this season.”With the final week of spring practice in the books, the three will enter summer play at full strength and look forward to the fall. Clement rehabbed his way back into live scrimmages at practice and seems relatively healthy entering his senior year.“[Ogunbawole and Deal] are motivating competitors and just always going,” Clement said. “You want those guys around you to help you get better.”Settle and the backs seemed incredibly confident exiting spring practice last Thursday. All in all, team cohesion in the backfield looks solid and could push the Badgers back into form as a running powerhouse.“It feels great to carry on the tradition and legacy of some of those legendary running backs,” Deal said. “This is Wisconsin football and we are the ‘running back university.’”last_img read more

Manager Mike Scioscia monitoring Angels’ bullpen, but not more than usual

first_imgScioscia insisted Saturday that he’s not more concerned about overtaxing his bullpen than in the past. The Angels’ new six-man starting rotation this season also is not a reason for keeping a closer watch on their relievers than usual, according to Scioscia.The Angels have seven relievers to go with a six-man rotation used to accommodate Shohei Ohtani, a rookie from Japan who is pitching and serving as a designated hitter this season. Even if the Angels had eight relievers, Scioscia said he would keep a close watch on his bullpen.The starters simply haven’t chewed up the needed innings to give the bullpen a break, he said.“You always pay a lot of attention to your bullpen,” Scioscia said. “But when you’re in the situation that we’ve been in for the first quarter of the season, you certainly have to pay more attention to it. We’ve been fortunate to have mostly an eight-man bullpen, which helps for the first 40 games.”Seven relievers should be plenty, as far as Scioscia is concerned. ANAHEIM — No question, the Angels’ bullpen was overworked to start the 2018 season. Their relief corps needed to be monitored and protected as much as possible as the days and weeks passed and their starters failed to pitch deep enough in games.Matters seemed to be changing for the better, with Angels starters posting a 2.14 ERA in May, the fourth-best mark in the majors. Handoffs from their starters to their relievers continue to be problematic, however, with Friday’s bullpen collapse the latest case in point.Manager Mike Scioscia tried to avoid using Jose Alvarez, Kenyan Middleton and Jim Johnson on Friday, giving them a rest after they pitched Thursday. Instead, Scioscia stayed with Justin Anderson, who gave up three runs in 1-1/3 innings in the Angels’ 5-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins.Middleton is the only Angels reliever to have pitched three consecutive days, and he ended up on the disabled list because of a right elbow inflammation after throwing April 21-22-23. Three consecutive days of throwing now seems to be the no-go zone.Related Articles Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros “Our issue has been for a lot of the first quarter of the season is we were averaging 14 outs from a lot of the rotation,” he said. “That’s a lot for you bullpen to pick up every night. We’re protective of every pitcher in our bullpen. They need a day (off), they get a day.”OHTANI WORKLOAD UPDATEThe Angels hope Ohtani will shift from pitching every seven days to every six days, which was their game plan going into the season. When it happens is anyone’s guess, although the Angels finally have six healthy starters with the return of Nick Tropeano from the disabled list Saturday.“Hopefully, Shohei will be able to come back on a six-day rest instead of a seven-day,” Scioscia said. “As he gets comfortable and starts to get innings under his belt, hopefully, he’ll be able to recover and be able to do that at some point. It will help us a lot.“(But) we don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves.”COVERING THE BASESThe Angels sent reliever Akeel Morris to Triple-A Salt Lake in order to make room for Tropeano on the roster. Tropeano, who started Saturday against the Twins, had been on the disabled list because of shoulder inflammation since May 2.Reliever Blake Wood is scheduled to make a rehab appearance with Class-A Inland Empire on Monday, Scioscia said. Wood, a right-hander, has been on the DL since April 23 because of an impingement in his right shoulder.

Bellator 220 results: Rory MacDonald, Jon Fitch fight to controversial majority draw

first_img— Bellator 220 presents some of the more notable names in the organization. Don’t sleep, though, on Gaston Bolanos, who begins the main card action.— A lot is on the line for MacDonald ahead of his first title defense.— Benson Henderson wanted Brent Primus. Instead, he’s getting Adam Piccolotti. Henderson goes in-depth to SN on why he’s getting the latter and not the former. MMA pundits expected welterweight champion Rory MacDonald to steamroll through Jon Fitch and advance to the semifinals of the Welterweight Grand Prix in the main event of Bellator 220.Fitch and the judges inside the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., had other plans. MacDonald and Fitch fought to a majority draw (48-46 Fitch, 47-47, 47-47). Sporting News scored it 48-47 for MacDonald. Despite the bout ending in a tie, MacDonald, as the welterweight titleholder, advances to the semifinals to face Neiman Gracie on June 14. Join DAZN and watch Canelo vs. Jacobs on May 4If the ending of the fight wasn’t strange enough, MacDonald’s comments during his postfight interview should be of concern. He wouldn’t even say whether he will take on Gracie a little less than seven weeks from now at Madison Square Garden in New York.”It’s hard to pull the trigger,” MacDonald told John McCarthy. “I don’t have that killer instinct. It’s hard to explain … it takes a certain spirit to come in here and put a man through pain and I don’t know if I have that same drive to hurt people anymore.”MacDonald (20-5-1) got off to a good start in the first two rounds. He landed the harder shots and was able to get right back to his feet when Fitch took him down. The momentum shifted in Fitch’s favor in the third round when he was able to get MacDonald to the canvas. This time, though, Fitch didn’t let MacDonald go. The 41-year-old connected on sharp elbows to bloody up MacDonald, digging punches to his body and grinding him to knock the wind out of him. MacDonald came out relentless in the fourth round, landing a sharp elbow and immediately connecting on a head kick that staggered Fitch. But Fitch remained determined; he moved forward and scored another takedown to remain in top control for the rest of the round. Fitch (32-7-2, one-no contest) went back to grappling in the fifth, taking down MacDonald and giving him no space to get back to his feet. That paved the way for the controversial majority draw ruling.Here is what happened at Bellator 220 (all times Eastern):Bellator 220 updates, resultsRory MacDonald and Jon Fitch fight to a majority draw; MacDonald advances to semifinals1:12 a.m.: MacDonald and Fitch go to a majority draw (48-46 Fitch, 47-47, 47-47); by rule, the champion advances to the next round. Hard to see where a judge gave Fitch an apparent 10-8 round. He wasn’t dominant enough to warrant such a score. Not a fan of MacDonald moving on this way. A sixth round should have been ordered and whoever won it would have advanced.  Round 5: Knowing he needed to be dominant, Fitch sent MacDonald right back to the mat. Fitch had himself in great position and didn’t give MacDonald room to breathe by pounding the body. I don’t get why Fitch didn’t try to go for the finish because it wasn’t a 10-8 round and he didn’t put MacDonald in a dangerous position to be stopped. I have a feeling these scorecards are going to be all over the place. (48-47 MacDonald)Round 4: MacDonald started out on fire, wobbling Fitch with a sharp elbow and following it up immediately with a hard body kick. To Fitch’s credit, he hung in there and took MacDonald back down to the canvas. Unlike the previous round, Fitch didn’t do much with it. Hard to award rounds when you have dominant position and do nothing with it. Fitch needs a stoppage to win the championship. (39-37 MacDonald)Round 3: Fitch needed to change the tide and he did just that. Not only did he secure another takedown, but this time, he kept MacDonald down and went to work. He got into MacDonald and bloodied up him with elbows and continuous punches to the body and head. It isn’t the most crowd-pleasing style to implement, but it is effective. If Fitch is going win the belt, he needs to keep getting takedowns. (29-28 MacDonald)Round 2: Fitch once again scored two takedowns, but MacDonald got up each time with relative ease. MacDonald is doing a good job in controlling the action on the feet and using his distance well. An impressive takedown at the end of the round by MacDonald to let Fitch know he can do that, too. If MacDonald can do it again with some time, watch out, as he’s lethal when on top. (20-18 MacDonald)Round 1: The fight is already playing out the way pundits had expected it go. MacDonald needed to keep it on the feet and Fitch to get takedowns. While Fitch scored two takedowns, MacDonald threw and connected on the harder punches. (10-9 MacDonald)12:28 a.m.: It is now time for the main event of Bellator 220: Rory MacDonald puts the welterweight title on the line against Jon Fitch in the final bout of the opening round of the Welterweight Grand Prix. Will MacDonald (20-5) be able to erase the nightmare of getting battered by Gegard Mousasi in their middleweight title bout in September? If he can’t, Fitch (32-7-1, one no-contest) has a good shot at walking out with the gold.Ilima-Lei Macfarlane stops Veta Arteaga to retain the women’s flyweight championship12:14 a.m.: Macfarlane def. Arteaga via TKO at 1:56 of the third round when the ringside doctor stopped the fight. Macfarlane began the third with another takedown, then connected on one of the most vicious elbows you will ever see (or hear). The crack from elbow to forehead was audible. Immediately, blood gushed out of Arteaga’s forehead. Referee Jason Herzog called for a timeout. The ringside doctor looked at the deep cut and wouldn’t allow Arteaga to go on.Big elbow from the champ, @Ilimanator in round two. 💪💥 pic.twitter.com/sTAlCSajzk— Bellator MMA (@BellatorMMA) April 28, 2019An entertaining fight and one that should be run back. Even though Macfarlane won the first two rounds, they were close and Arteaga made a good showing. Macfarlane wants a rematch and, hopefully, Bellator officials let it happen.Round 2: Macfarlane wasted no time going right at Arteaga and taking her to the mat. What she didn’t expect was Arteaga landing a sharp elbow to cause a cut to Macfarlane. But what Arteaga didn’t expect when the fight made it back to the feet was that Macfarlane would be effective standing by staying on the outside and throwing leg kicks to control distance. Arteaga has to find a way to get on the inside. (20-18 Macfarlane)Round 1: A fun opening round. Smart move by Macfarlane going for and being able to get a takedown right away. She tried for a kneebar and submission to no avail. Have to give Arteaga credit. She didn’t get overwhelmed and kept herself in the right positions to avoid trouble. (10-9 Macfarlane)11:47 p.m.: What an entrance by Macfarlane. One of the best in MMA.🍍👊The champ is here! @Ilimanator makes her walk to the cage in typical and extravagant fashion. pic.twitter.com/7quLTaZVMF— Bellator MMA (@BellatorMMA) April 28, 201911:44 p.m.: It is time for the co-main event of Bellator 220: Ilima-Lei Macfarlane defends the Bellator women’s flyweight championship against Veta Arteaga. Since winning the belt, Macfarlane (9-0) has won both of her title defenses, over Alejandra Lara and Valerie Letourneau, by submission. Arteaga (5-2) earned her shot at the belt by defeating Emily Ducote and Denise Kielholtz, respectively.Arteaga has to keep the fight on the feet because if Macfarlane gets it on the ground, it’s all over.11:31 p.m.: Henderson def. Piccolotti by split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28). Unbelievable fight. That was one of the best grappling contests you will see inside an MMA cage. Piccolotti had the advantage in the first round and Henderson had the upper hand in the second. Everything came down to the third round. Each guy secured a choke, but Piccolotti made a gigantic mistake with his. He left a slight opening and Henderson capitalized. He stayed composed, slipped out and got into full mount to land right and left hands to the final bell. The judges remembered what happened at the end, and it was Henderson in control. Henderson has now won three consecutive fights and is back in the lightweight title picture. One more win and Henderson will get another chance to win the championship.11:15 p.m.: Highly entertaining first round. Piccolotti tried for a couple of chokes and Henderson rose back to his feet with about 40 seconds remaining. Henderson blasted Piccolotti with a series of leg kicks and a sharp elbow and staggered him with a head kick to close the stanza.11:08 p.m.: Coming up at Bellator 220, Benson Henderson squares off with Adam Piccolotti in lightweight action. Henderson (26-8), a former UFC and WEC lightweight champion, seems to have gained his footing inside the Bellator cage, winning back-to-back fights after losing three of his first four bouts in the organization. After losing back-to-back affairs, Piccolotti (11-2) has gotten those two wins back. This fight is the biggest of Piccolotti’s career and one Henderson cannot overlook.Phil Davis chops down Liam McGeary to earn a submission victory11:57 p.m.: Davis def. McGeary by submission (rear-naked choke) at 4:11 of the third round. Davis threw a left jab to break McGeary’s jaw and send him to the canvas. Davis mounted McGeary and threw a couple hard ground-and-pound punches. Davis went for a rear-naked choke and as soon as he touched McGeary’s jaw, the Englishman tapped out. A surprising performance by Davis. Very shocked to see him willing to engage, stay on the outside and throw leg kicks. McGeary had no answer for the strategy until he decided to go forward in the third round, but Davis’ striking proved to be too much..@PhilMrWonderful gets the victory via TKO! 💥@BellatorMMA #Bellator220 pic.twitter.com/JYgW533yGs— DAZN USA (@DAZN_USA) April 28, 2019If Davis can keep working on his striking, light heavyweight champion Ryan Bader better watch out.10:45 p.m.: Why isn’t McGeary checking Davis’ leg kicks? All those kicks are adding up to a ton of damage. McGeary needs to alter his strategy in a hurry as the third and final round is about to begin.10:31 p.m.: Up next at Bellator 220, Phil Davis goes up against Liam McGeary in light heavyweight action. Davis and McGeary (13-3) met at Bellator 163 in November 2016 with the former using his dominant wrestling to become the light heavyweight champion. Can Davis put on a repeat performance, or has McGeary learned from his past mistakes?Gaston Bolanos makes quick work of Nathan Stolen 10:18 p.m.: Bolanos def. Stolen by TKO at 2:21 of the first round. A great ending to the fight when Bolanos and Stolen were attempting to throw left hooks at the same time. Bolanos connected first to send Stolen to the mat. He threw two ground-and-pound punches to finish off Stolen. It’s time for Bolanos to face a quality opponent. The talent is there; now he needs a test to see how good he really is.

Sunday blog: Tuesday’s city council appointment was a mixed bag

first_imgCommentary by Tracy McCue — Tuesday, the Wellington City Council found itself in a no-win situation when it chose a replacement for B.J. Tracy, who resigned from the board last month. The council was split, and ultimately the majority chose Bill Butts to represent Wellington in the vacant seat until the spring or fall of 2017 depending when the Kansas Legislature mandates the next municipal election.Cindy AntonichThe debate centered on whether or not to choose in a field of seven applicants candidate Cindy Antonich who received the fourth largest vote total — and highest number of those candidates not elected — in the previous April election. Instead, three of the council members: Kelly Green, Vince Wetta and Kip Etter ultimately went with Butts, who they felt was the best candidate to represent Wellington. Butts did not run for office in 2015.Bill ButtsAs city law is written, those council members did nothing wrong. They did what they were asked to do under the bylaws of city policy. They also did not do anything unusual.On national, state and county levels where there are partisan politics, when elected officials resign or retire in midstream they are replaced by members of their own party. If it’s a Republican official, nobody thinks twice when appointing another Republican. For example, when U.S. Senator Bob Dole resigned to run for U.S. President in 1996, fellow Republican Sheila Frahm replaced him.Frahm did not run against Dole in the previous election in 1992. A Democrat named Gloria O’Dell was his challenger. Was O’Dell appointed because she had the second most votes? No. Was Democrat George McGovern appointed as President when Republican Richard Nixon resigned? Has Sumner County Republicans ever replaced a midstream vacancy with a Democrat?This view that the council has a morale obligation to go with the next candidate vote total especially so soon after an election, may have validity since the city council is non-partisan.But it most certainly is not a requirement. Appointments are not the same as elections. We elect those in office so they can make these kinds of decisions. That is why it so important for you to make an informed vote during an election so you have the right elected official making the right decision.In the Butts vs. Antonich issue, the council can be absolved of any wrong doing.But here is what the council did do wrong…•••••The council did itself no favors by how it conducted the process.After a 15-day application process, the council went over applications at the end of a previous work session and asked candidates to approach them.Two applicants told Sumner Newscow they never got a chance to address or speak to the council. One candidate said he never received an e-mail and for that matter did not know the meeting took place.And if the Wellington City Clerk Shane Shield’s e-mail was the only thing that was used to contact these applicants, there is nothing that indicates that they would be interviewed.When the vote came around at the next public meeting, neither the applicants or the citizens were allowed input, before the vote was taken.As citizen Tom McAlister pointed out, it appeared as if the council was ramrodding this through.What the council should have done is either hold a special meeting, not a work session, or hold the interviews during the regular session on Tuesday.I would have given each candidate a certified letter saying such a meeting will take place, that they would be asked to speak, and invite the media and public at large.The council members should have given each candidate an opportunity to speak for five minutes, follow with a question and answer session, allow input from the audience, before debating amongst themselves and voting. Get the whole meeting taped on Channel 55.If the council would have shown more transparency, they may have avoided much of the ensuing wrath.  I, personally as a voter and city taxpayer, didn’t feel as if I got a chance to learn anything about the seven applicants.  As a reporter, I didn’t make it a priority to attend that work session for which I should have. But I, like at least two of the applicants, must have missed the memo.There is no indication each council member did not invest the time to pick who they thought would be the most deserving council member to serve out Tracy’s term. But that didn’t get conveyed.Maybe, next time.Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Why would you need to be asked or told? Would it not be advantage to have attended the session so you would be up to speed on what the counsel was working on. You would have been sworn in if appointed so any extra knowledge would only be a plus. Why is it that some feel like they need to have been guided or told to attend. What kind of leader has to be told to be somewhere. Some seek out the opportunity. Tracy you even pointed out you knew about the meeting you just didn’t attend.

Many of the candidates who “lost” in the election attended many workshops and work sessions along the way. Why should they have to undergo an “interview?” You already know them. Finding loopholes and wording it “best candidate” to justify an appointment does not make it right. Best candidate in whose eyes? The eyes of three. This is the problem.

The details should be outlined step by step, including the timeline for applications, those who will conduct interviews, the interview process, and the approval process.

Man Utd stun Chelsea to close gap on top four

first_imgCaptain Maguire heads home to give Man Utd a 2 goal advantage.London, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester United moved to within three points of fourth-placed Chelsea with a smash and grab 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge thanks to goals from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire on Monday.Chelsea had two goals disallowed by VAR reviews and were furious Maguire was not sent-off early on for an off-the-ball kick out at Michy Batshuayi.However, Blues boss Frank Lampard cut a frustrated figure as the flaws in both boxes which have seen his side win just four of their last 14 league games were exposed once more against ordinary opposition.Victory lifts United up to seventh and within two points of Tottenham in fifth, which could be good enough to qualify for the Champions League next season pending Manchester City’s appeal again a two-season ban from European competition.Lampard made a bold call before kick-off by again dropping the most expensive goalkeeper in football history, Kepa Arrizabalaga, to the bench in favour of the 38-year-old Willy Caballero.Batshuayi also started with Tammy Abraham ruled out by injury and Lampard’s anger at missing out on a striker in the January window was borne out by a poor night for the misfiring Belgium forward.Chelsea suffered another injury blow early on when N’Golo Kante hobbled off and the France World Cup winner is now a doubt to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League next week.The loss of Kante did not disrupt the home side’s early rhythm as Reece James and Willian fired just wide.Chelsea were then furious Maguire somehow escaped without being sent-off for kicking Batshuayi after the two collided in front of the dugouts.The former Marseille attacker then squandered the first of a host of chances by firing wide from Mason Mount’s cut-back.– One-way traffic – Chelsea’s sense of injustice increased when Willian was harshly booked for diving as he went down under a challenge from Bruno Fernandes looking for a penalty.United had not made Caballero make a single save before going in front a minute before the break when Martial planted a brilliant header into the far corner from Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s cross.There was still time for Batshuayi to miss another chance before half-time when he skewed wide from a narrow angle.The one-way traffic continued at the start of the second period as Mount hit the post and a brave block from Wan-Bissaka deflected Pedro’s goal-bound effort behind.But even when Chelsea did get the ball in the net through substitute Kurt Zouma, the goal was ruled out by VAR for a push on Brandon Williams by Cesar Azpilicueta.Fernandes was unable to make much of an impact from open play in his second United appearance since a £47 million ($62 million) move from Sporting Lisbon.However, the Portuguese international is a huge threat from set-pieces and nearly caught Caballero out with a free-kick that crashed back off the post.Moments later, Fernandes provided his first assist for the Red Devils with a corner which Maguire powered home.Lampard had seen enough from Batshuayi and handed Olivier Giroud a rare appearance off the bench for the final quarter.The French striker thought he had given Chelsea a lifeline with a near post header, but was ruled offside after a VAR review.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

It’s going to hurt more if we still lose to San Miguel,” said Cruz.Aguilar added: “Coach told us next man up. So it was a total team effort from us. We reserves stepped up and we’re lucky that we got the win. We needed this so that we won’t go down the standings and we’re fortunate that we had a good effort on our defense and our shots went in.”Playing stupendously in slaying the reigning three-time Philippine Cup champions, it’s almost a certainty that Aguilar and Cruz will be raring to go whenever Cone calls their numbers.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew LATEST STORIES PBA IMAGESWithout Greg Slaughter in Ginebra’s collossal duel against San Miguel on Sunday, coach Tim Cone feared for the worst with June Mar Fajardo primed to dominate his squad’s frontline.That was the case in the first quarter as the Beermen leapt to a 16-point lead, 33-17.ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more

AG Williams desecrates Parliament

first_imgDear Editor,The Parliament of this nation is a most sacrosanct, constitutional creation, which houses our nation’s legislative branch of Government. The nature of its work and its constitutional role under the doctrine of Separation of Powers, mandate that it must not be contaminated by petty party politics neither should its facilities be used to accommodate the activities of political parties.Against this backdrop, we must condemn in the strongest terms, the use of Parliament Building and the hallowed halls of the Chambers of the National Assembly to host an event, which, from all indications was a People’s National Congress (PNC) activity, where a grouping calling themselves “Patriots”, gathered in the National Assembly, seating themselves in its chairs, where the Chairman of the PNC, Basil Williams, addressed them about the importance of Parliament. Alarmingly, the news report says the Clerk of the National Assembly facilitated this exercise and the Clerk and staff of the National Assembly made presentations, as well.It is public knowledge that the Chairman of the PNC may be incapable of appreciating the transgressions, which he committed. However, I wish to register my deep dismay that the Speaker would permit such a pantomime to take place in the sacred halls of the National Assembly and that the Clerk has allowed himself to be used in the process. These officers are responsible for the preservation of the sanctity of our Parliament. Or is it that they have now become full-fledged creatures of the PNC.Is it that party paramountcy is now fully with us and that we should next expect that the Chairman of the PNC will soon take another party group, ensconced them in the Court of Appeal of Guyana and then lecture them on how the Judiciary works?Sincerely,Anil Nandlall, MPlast_img read more

Chinoweng Village gets boat, engine to transport children to school

first_imgThe “Five Bs” Initiative began some three years ago, and President David Granger has since donated 27 buses and 14 boats to aid the transportation of school children across Guyana.President David Granger handing over the key to Toshao Roger Ronald of Chinoweng VillageAccording to the Department of Public Information (DPI), these donations were all made possible through contributions from private and business persons, but President Granger said last Sunday that the objective of allowing every child to go to school remains the same.The Head of State has handed over to the Village of Chinoweng, in Region Seven, (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) a new boat and engine worth $1.3 million.Giving remarks before the presentation was made to Toshao Roger Ronald, President Granger recalled the road which led to the initiative back in 2015.“Three years ago, when I entered office after a very long campaign, I went into many rivers, and one of the important things I noticed was that many children were not going to school because they didn’t have transportation. And we started in 2015 what we called “Three Bs”,” the president told villagers.He said the programme has so far acquired 27 buses and 14 boats, which he noted will help children attend school free of charge. He reminded that in communities with roads, children are given bicycles.Just last week, while celebrating Emancipation with villagers at Number 53 Village on the Corentyne, the Head of State donated another 25 bicycles to children along the Corentyne Coast.“The most important thing about this boat — and I am reminding Chinoweng — is that children must go to school; children must not be kept away from school. I am proud of this presentation,” the Head of State told Chinoweng residents.The donation was made possible through Beverly Tapp of B & J Civil Works, in observance of her company’s 25th anniversary. Tapp said, “I decided that we are going to donate a boat (and engine). I just want you to use it safely and care it.” She noted that the business community is “here to support the people”.The contribution came at a time when the village is participating in the annual Upper Mazaruni District Games in Waramadong.last_img read more

Tattoo artist stabbed to death

first_img… minibus conductor arrestedA tattoo artist was on Friday evening stabbed to death during an alleged robbery in the vicinity of Demico House, Stabroek Market, Georgetown. Raul Rodrigues, 40, also called “Tattoo Man” of Lot 64 Leopold Street, Georgetown, was attacked and stabbed once to his chest by two men during the robbery.Dead tattoo artist: Raul RodriguesReports are Rodrigues, who is also a mason, was consuming alcohol in Leopold Street, Georgetown earlier in the day but reportedly left to collect his child’s mother, who was getting off from work at 20:00h.However, Guyana Times understands that while walking in the vicinity of Dairy Bus Park, he was attacked by two males where he was stabbed. In an attempt to escape from his assailants, he collapsed in front of Demico House. The perpetrators reportedly relieved him of an iPhone he was carrying at the time.He was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) where he reportedly died while receiving medical attention.Annastacia Rodrigues, a sister of the dead man told Guyana Times that she was at home in Campbell Street, Albouystown, when she received a telephone call informing her that her brother was stabbed. As she was hurrying out, another friend told her that he was dead and that the family must rush to the hospital.Upon arriving at the medical facility, she was restricted from seeing her brother although she pleaded with the security guards to be allowed to see him.“About an hour and a half later, they come out and tell us that he was dead,” she related. Again, she requested to see her bother but that request was denied. However, she returned to the Police Station on Saturday morning where she was told that someone was arrested for the murder.“The Police tell me that they arrested a man, but they could not say if he was the one who stabbed my brother, but they tell me that investigations are continuing,” she noted.Nevertheless, she recalled that her sister was also stabbed and killed six years ago but no one was ever charged for the murder. She however, vowed to seek justice for her brother this time around.While at Rodrigues’ house, her mother fainted several times as she cried out “they kill him… they kill him… no body nah do nothing to save he life.”Meanwhile, the mother of the dead man’s child reportedly told Police that she left work and was heading to the minibus park when she saw someone lying on the ground and upon checking, she realised that it was Rodrigues. She noted that from all indications, he was already dead.The Police in a release stated that Rodrigues was involved in an altercation with two men when one of them armed himself with an object and dealt him one blow to the region of his heart. Guyana Times understands that a 28-year-old minibus conductor was arrested and is being questioned in relation to the murder.Rodrigues leaves to mourn his mother, siblings and three daughters.last_img read more

Vetttel claims 50th win, goes top in title race

first_imgVettel’s third victory this season lifted him to 121 points ahead of Hamilton on 120 after seven races, ending the defending four-time champion’s hopes of a record-equalling seventh win at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve where he won from pole for the last three years.It was Ferrari’s first win in Canada since 2004 and came from their first pole there in 17 years. It was also Vettel’s second win in Canada where he won in 2013 for Red Bull.Australian Daniel Ricciardo, who clocked the fastest lap at the end, managed to resist a late charge from Hamilton in the closing laps and retain fourth place ahead of the Englishman who extended his record points-scoring run to 32 races.Finn Kimi Raikkonen finished sixth in the second Ferrari.Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel celebrates on the podium with his trophy after winning the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve © GETTY/AFP / Mark ThompsonGerman Nico Hulkenberg came home seventh ahead of his Renault team-mate Spaniard Carlos Sainz, Frenchman Esteban Ocon of Force India and Monegasque Charles Leclerc of Sauber.“Perfect is a good way to describe this,” said a delighted Vettel.“I said yesterday that this place means a lot to Ferrari and to have a race like this is unbelievable.“After a long stretch here without a Ferrari win, I looked around and the people are so very happy. It means a lot. There’s a long way to go in the season so I am not bothered about the title now, but it’s a good side affect for me.”He said the win was special because it came 40 years after Canadian Gilles Villeneuve had won his first race for Ferrari.– Hartley run off the road –The race began in near-perfect conditions with an air temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and the track at 45 as the lights went out.Vettel, from his fourth Canadian pole, made a clean start while behind him Bottas had to scrap to resist a robust attack from Verstappen.Hamilton stayed fourth ahead of Ricciardo who made quick work of passing Raikkonen before, after only half a lap, a heavy collision between Brendon Hartley’s Toro Rosso and local hero Lance Stroll’s Williams.Sebastian Vettel during the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix – Mark Thompson/Getty Images/AFP © GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP / Mark ThompsonThe New Zealander appeared to be squeezed into the barriers as Stroll, with a puncture, moved sideways ahead of him at Turn Five and the Toro Rosso was lifted off the ground before both flew off the track.Both men were unhurt. “He just ran me out of road,” said the luckless Hartley.Hamilton’s early pit-stop on an enforced two-stop strategy, due to an engine heating problem, had done him no favours, but when Raikkonen pitted after 33 laps the Englishman was able to hang on and regain fifth as the Ferrari rejoined.This left Vettel and Bottas out in front, 24 seconds ahead of Verstappen, but still running on their original ultra-softs. Bottas was first to blink on lap 37, Vettel following one lap later, both going to super-softs.All this left Vettel in command after 40 laps, 5.7 seconds clear of Bottas with Verstappen third ahead of Ricciardo, Hamilton and Raikkonen.After 42 laps, sadly, Fernando Alonso’s 300th Grand Prix weekend came to an end when, chasing 10th, he was called in to pit and retire. “No power, no gears,” said the Spaniard. “Sorry mate, gutted,” said his McLaren engineer.With 20 laps remaining, Hamilton began to find a rhythm to move within a second of Ricciardo while Bottas, at the front, trimmed Vettel’s lead to 3.8 seconds.A grandstand finish looked possible until Bottas ran off at Turn One and took to the grass before recovering. He had lost two seconds and Vettel, turning the screw, responded with a fastest lap before cruising to a crushing victory.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Sebastian Vettel claimed the 50th win of his career and reclaimed the lead of this year’s world championship on Sunday when he ended Lewis Hamilton’s run of supremacy at the Canadian Grand Prix © GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP / Mark ThompsonMONTREAL, Canada, Jun 10 – Sebastian Vettel claimed the 50th win of his career and reclaimed the lead of this year’s world championship on Sunday when he ended Lewis Hamilton’s run of supremacy at the Canadian Grand Prix.The four-time champion German drove his Ferrari with near flawless aplomb to convert his 54th pole position into a triumphant afternoon ahead of Finn Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes and determined Dutchman Max Verstappen, who was third for Red Bull.last_img read more

Boro hero ‘perfect’ for Newcastle and ‘exceptional’ Allardyce should stay at West Ham

first_imgFormer Newcastle United player Lee Bowyer claims Derby County manager Steve McClaren would be perfect for the job at St. James’ Park.Current Toon boss John Carver has seen his side lose six consecutive games and win just twice in 2015, meaning chairman Mike Ashley is likely to look for a new manager at the end of the season.If the Newcastle lose to Swansea this weekend, they will set a new club record with seven Premier League losses on the bounce.And Bowyer, who made 79 Premier League appearances for the Magpies believes former England manager McClaren, who guided Middlesbrough to the 2004 League Cup coupled with his success at Derby County, makes him perfect for the Tyneside job.“I think he’d be perfect, because he’s managed England and there is a lot of pressure in that job, and there is a lot of pressure to manage Newcastle so I think he’d be perfect for it,” he told the Weekend Sports Breakfast.“Derby don’t look like they are going to go up, unless they go up through the play-offs.”Talking about his other former employers, West Ham United, Bowyer believes manager Sam Allardyce is still the man for the job at Upton Park, claiming he has done an exceptional job at the helm.“He’s done what they’ve asked and got the team back into the Premier League and now they have been established,” Bowyer said.“They’re always finishing mid-table, which I think is good for West Ham and sometimes I think you have to be careful with what you wish for.”last_img read more

Arsenal 4-0 Aston Villa: Gunners retain FA Cup in emphatic style at Wembley

first_imgArsenal retained the FA Cup and became the most successful club in the competition’s history with a four-goal demolition of Aston Villa at Wembley.The Gunners deservedly went ahead against an insipid Villa side through Theo Walcott’s fine volley, before Alexis Sanchez’s sumptuous effort doubled the lead just after half time.Per Mertesacker was awarded the freedom of the Villa penalty area to add a third halfway through the second half, before substitute Olivier Giroud flicked in a fourth in stoppage time. Arsenal’s rampant display ensured Arsene Wenger moved level with George Ramsay as the most proficient manager in FA Cup history with six titles, while the Gunners’ 12th success elevated them ahead of Manchester United in the record books.In their first FA Cup final for 15 years, the Villa players looked out of their depth and daunted by the magnitude of the task at hand, with Arsenal quick to assert their superiority.Shay Given, in his first FA Cup final appearance for 17 years, brilliantly denied Laurent Koscielny’s header before Aaron Ramsey uncharacteristically lashed over after a mistake by Ron Vlaar.Kieran Richardson was then on hand to keep the Gunners at bay with a desperate block from Walcott’s close range effort, but the England international, chosen ahead of Giroud, wasn’t to be denied for long.Five minutes before the break, the Gunners and Walcott deservedly broke the deadlock; capitalising on some hesitant Villa defending to confidently volley home left footed from Sanchez’s knock down.It took the same time difference the other side of half time for Arsenal to double their lead, with Sanchez’s dipping effort beating Given all ends up from the best part of 30 yards.Arsenal could smell blood, and Given got down smartly to palm away Santi Cazorla’s low strike before Jores Okore intervened after Walcott had initially skipped past the labouring centre back.The Gunners moved even further ahead just after the hour mark, as Mertesacker escaped Christian Benteke’s attentions to nod home a third from Cazorla’s corner.On another day Walcott could have notched a hat-trick, and Giroud soon replaced the 26-year-old with the Gunners coasting – Jack Wilshere also introduced for the impressive Mesut Ozil.Giroud was to get his goal, too, cleverly flicking in fellow substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s low cross in the final minute of added time to add gloss to the scoreline.Tim Sherwood’s Villa side, in truth, looked completely overawed by the occasion and failed to register a shot on target in the entire 90 minutes, but the result was more a reflection of Arsenal’s brilliance than the Villans’ negligence. 1 Arsenal players last_img read more

Arctic cold front to bring weekend wind, rain, snow

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Usually balmy Southern California will get downright chilly this weekend as a blast of cold air moves in from Alaska, bringing heavy rain, thunderstorms and snow to the local mountains, forecasters said Thursday. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm watch beginning tonight, warning of cold temperatures, wind gusts up to 40 mph and significant precipitation, including snow to the 1,500-foot level. “The bulk of the rain will come Saturday,” said Bill Forwood, meteorologist with the NWS. “You’ll have showers that will last through Sunday.” The NWS expects between 1 and 2 inches of rain in the San Gabriel Valley, Forwood said. Rain and snow will make travel treacherous, officials said, especially along Interstate 5 from Castaic to the Grapevine, as well as Interstate 15 through Soledad Canyon. “People like to go to the mountains when there is snow, but they need to make sure that the roadways are clear and open and that they have chains if required,” said California Highway Patrol Officer Humberto Jimenez. Rainfall from tonight through Sunday is expected to range from a half-inch to an inch across coastal and valley locations, with 2 inches in the foothills and mountains. Officials at mountain resorts say they will welcome the snow, but the stormy conditions might slow traffic over the weekend. “We’re looking forward to it. Any snow that we get is going to be fantastic,” said John McColly, director of marketing for Mountain High Resort in Wrightwood. “I think we are going to see good business this weekend, but not huge crowds because of the weather. I hope we have great business next week.” Ventura County agriculture officials said the Southland’s winter has been mild, encouraging avocado trees to bloom early, and farmers fear the cold snap could slow the bloom and reduce next year’s crop. Agricultural Commissioner Earl McPhail said farmers will be staying close to home this weekend to protect their crops. “These late winter storms are pretty unpredictable, especially this far south,” he said. “Normally we don’t have any major freezes after February, but anything is possible.” eric.leach@dailynews.com (805) 583-7602last_img read more

Arcadia headed to top event

first_img For a program that has won seven consecutive freshman Pacific League titles and six JV titles, the thrill of winning a varsity title had eluded the Apaches until last year. “We beat out (Crescenta Valley) last year,” senior William Vinopal said of the team’s first league title in over a decade. “This year we expect the same. They’re a young and improving team.” And the rest of the league? “CV is it,” senior T.J. Bacic said. “No offense to rest, but they’re our main competition. We’ll be ready for them.” Beckwith, Pilavjian, Bacic, Vinopal, senior Daniel Miller and juniors Kazuya Koda and Alan Tsai already have faced CV once, back at Woodbridge. While they easily finished higher as a team than the Falcons, Crescenta Valley’s top runner, junior Nathan Sellers, was the top individual finisher among their rivals. It’s a loss that O’Brien doesn’t put much stock into. “We were more focused on getting all our runners up to speed,” O’Brien said. “It was more important for them to run as a pack.” O’Brien’s new goal for his team come Saturday is to familiarize themselves with the course. “(Woodward) has plenty of hills,” O’Brien said. “We’ll be working on our speed and other drills. This should be interesting.” Vinopal and the Apaches couldn’t agree more. “Our goal is to win state,” Vinopal said. “What better place to get ready than at Woodward?” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! ARCADIA — As early preparations began for this Saturday’s Clovis Invitational in Fresno’s Woodward Park, Arcadia High cross country coach Jim O’Brien began to think of the possibilities. “This course, this race will provide us with a big learning experience,” O’Brien said. “It gives the guys an opportunity to run on the state course. This will be a good practice for if and when we make it to the state finals.” Paced by a strong performance from senior Paul Beckwith (16:01) who finished 19th, the Apaches took seventh overall in team competition at the prestigious Stanford Invitational up in Palo Alto. A week earlier at the highly competitive Woodbridge Invitational, Arcadia placed four runners in the top 100, led by junior Andrew Pilavjian’s (15:02) 19th-place showing. “These kids have been putting in the time this summer,” said O’Brien, who made each of his varsity runners run more than 1,000 miles during the summer. “Luckily, a lot of our runners are back this year. This hasn’t always been the case.” One of the fascinating quirks that O’Brien has had to deal with in his 10 years as the boys’ coach, has been strong competition. Though Not the type that you find on the field, but off. “We’ve had trouble keeping a lot of kids in the program after their sophomore year,” he said. “A lot of parents have pulled their kids out of cross country during their junior year because they have felt that it’s the most academically rigorous year.” center_img The way the Apaches have been running lately, a return visit to Woodward on Nov. 26 for the state cross country finals appears in sight.

SA singer is new T-Mobile voice

first_imgSouth Africa singer/songwriter Baz Corden is the voice of T-Mobile’s new European television campaign. (Image: Baz Corden) Having achieved success at home, Corden is currently touring overseas. (Image: 2Feet Music) You Are Here – Baz Corden’s début album. (Image: 2Feet Music)Janine ErasmusHomegrown musical talent is once more in the international spotlight. South African singer/songwriter Baz Corden has been snapped up by major international mobile provider T-Mobile as the voice of their latest advertising campaign.The UK-based singer has contributed his latest single “There’s a Right Time for Everything”, to T-Mobile’s new television campaign, which is currently flighting in Europe.Corden released his solo album You Are Here, produced by David Birch (Stealing Love Jones, Parlotones and Perez), for 2Feet Music in 2008. The singer’s gentle, mainly acoustic style is described as a blend of jazz, folk, country and rock, sprinkled with whimsical, sometimes cryptic, lyrics.Mere weeks later, Corden was approached by the mobile provider and asked to provide music for its current European television campaign.T-Mobile is the world’s sixth largest mobile phone service provider according to number of subscribers. After UK-based Vodafone and Spain’s Telefónica, it is the third largest multi-national, with operations in the US, the UK, and 10 European countries. T-Mobile USA is the fourth largest wireless telecommunications network in America after AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and Sprint Nextel.T-Mobile asserts that it tries to use new tracks by up and coming artists in its adverts, adding that it would love to help take a musician’s career to the next level.This philosophy certainly seems to be working, as several songs from You Are Here have also been chosen for a National Geographic-sponsored documentary directed by Australian film maker Beau Miles.Home-grown talentBorn in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, Barry “Baz” Corden was introduced to music when he was seven, after his parents gave him a guitar for Christmas – although he recalls that what he really wanted was a toy bakkie (pick-up truck).Later Corden formed his first punk band The Melted Crayons and took his first steps on the road to an exciting career. After stints in various other groups, he took a break from the band environment to work with popular South African solo musicians such as Nibs van der Spuy, Guy Buttery, Josie Field, Farryl Purkiss, and Luke Siedle.The guitarist also has previous international exposure, in the form of his former band Pistolfish, which was playlisted on college stations in the US. In addition, he has worked with producer Bjorn Thorsrud of Smashing Pumpkins fame.“I’m interested in, and fascinated by, the search for beautiful things in life,” said Corden. “Experiences, moments, things people might say or do.”With this noteworthy achievement Corden has taken one step closer to following in the footsteps of internationally famous South African artists such as Johnny Clegg, rock bands Seether and Tree63, and Afro-fusion group Freshlyground.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Women SHGs in Maharashtra to get interest-free loans

first_imgNagpur, Feb 22 (PTI) Appreciating the Self-Help Groups in Maharashtra for their repayment ratio, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has offered interest-free loan to women SHGs in the state.The amount of interest on loans given to these SHGs would be borne by the government, Fadnavis said addressing a divisional-level womens convention held at Sports Complex in Mankapur here yesterday.He said the interest-free loan scheme will encourage women to become entrepreneurs and also help promote different activities in cottage and small units.Many business groups in the state have defaulted on repayment of bank and financial institutional loans, while the women SHGs have earned a reputation of making full and timely repayment of loan.”Interest-free loan scheme is a gift to all these SHGs of women who are sincere and understand their responsibilities,” Fadnavis said, at the convention attended by nearly 30,000 women from across eastern Vidarbha region.The countrys development depends on the contribution extended by women, who constitute 50 per cent of the total population, the CM said.While recognising potential of the products manufactured by women through SHGs, he said proper branding and packaging of these products would help the economy in a big way.The products manufactured by womens SHGs have potential to compete in bigger markets and challenge the brands of big companies, he observed.As part of the initiative to further the cause of packaging and branding of products made by womens SHGs, Fadnavis said the government will set up SHG Mall in each district of Maharashtra.advertisementThe first one will be set up on a plot of land owned by zilla parishad at Badkas Square in Mahal area of the city, he said.The mall will be constructed within a year and shops will be allotted only to SHGs of the state. After completion of Nagpur project, other districts will also get the facility.State Rural Development and Women and Child Development Minister Pankaja Munde presided over the programme while Energy Minister and Nagpur District Gaudian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule was also present at the event.

Yankees Take Off White Sox, 12-3

first_imgCHICAGO — From Jacoby Ellsbury all the way down to Stephen Drew at the bottom of the lineup, the New York Yankees bashed their way to a winning road trip.Ellsbury and Mark Teixeira homered against Jeff Samardzija, and the Yankees pounded the Chicago White Sox 12-3 on Aug. 2.Drew added three hits and four RBIs, helping the AL East-leading Yankees close out a 6-4 trip to Minnesota, Texas and Chicago — matching a season long. Chase Headley, Didi Gregorius and Drew — the bottom three hitters in the order — combined for seven hits, six RBIs and eight runs scored.“Outstanding job by our offense today,” Manager Joe Girardi said.New York also got a lift from Ivan Nova (4-3), who pitched six innings of five-hit ball in his third consecutive victory.Nova’s previous start on July 27 at Texas was cut short by arm fatigue, a condition he contributed to his comeback from Tommy John surgery in April 2014.Chicago was coming off an 8-2 victory on Aug. 1 night and averaged seven runs in its previous 10 games, but Nova allowed just one run on Melky Cabrera’s RBI single in the sixth.“Feeling good was something I was expecting after the fatigue I had last time out,” Nova said. “I got to get out because I was a little bit tired and being able to go six innings and feel good, that’s real important.”Samardzija (8-6) was tagged for nine runs, matching a season high, and eight hits in 4 2-3 innings.Samardzija, who is eligible for free agency after the season, also walked two and hit two batters in his first start since the White Sox decided to keep the right-hander at Friday’s non-waiver trade deadline.“I put too many guys on base for free, for sure,” Samardzija said. “Especially against a lineup like that, you’ve got to get the outs and make them put it in play.”Ellsbury drove Samardzija’s second pitch of the game over the wall in center for his first leadoff homer of the season and No. 12 for his career.He also had a sacrifice fly in New York’s five-run fourth inning and a run-scoring groundout in the seventh.Teixeira led off the fifth with his 29th homer, a 415-foot drive to right on a 3-1 pitch. The slugger connected from both sides of the plate in New York’s 13-6 victory in the series opener on July 31 and had five homers in the last four games of the road trip.A two-out walk for Gregorius sent Samardzija to the dugout, and Drew greeted Scott Carroll with a two-run double. Drew also had a two-run triple against Carroll in the seventh.“This whole road trip, from top to bottom, everybody was doing their job,” Gregorius said. “Everybody’s getting on base. Everybody’s scoring, so that’s what we want.”Alexei Ramirez and Geovany Soto homered for Chicago, and Jose Abreu extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a single in the first.(JAY COHEN, AP Sports Writer) TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

ams: light sensor with 50/60Hz flicker detect eliminates banding

first_imgams introduces a new color (RGB), proximity and flicker detection sensor, the TCS3707, which enables a mobile phone camera to take clean, unblemished photo-graphs in artificial lighting scenes.When equipped with a TCS3707, a mobile phone’s camera may be used in any conditions, including under artificial light sources such as fluorescent lights or street lamps, without suffering from banding or other image artefacts generated by the invisible flickering of AC powered lighting.The TCS3707’s ultra-high sensitive RGB, Clear, Wideband channels enable accurate measurements of the color and intensity of ambient light across a wide range of lighting conditions. This enables mobile phone makers to deploy sophisticated display brightness and color management schemes, and to implement camera and flash color balancing.The device’s flicker detection engine can detect the flickering of any artificial light source operating from 50Hz or 60Hz alternating current cycles. Flicker produces banding and other artefacts in pictures taken by an image sensor with a rolling shutter. The effect is produced when the flickering light turns on or off while the shutter is in operation.The TCS3707’s flicker detection capability allows the camera controller to synchronize the shutter with the ‘On’ part of the AC cycle. The sensor can also supply flicker measurements to the mobile phone’s applications processor to support flicker cancellation firmware at frequencies other than50/60Hz by using the internal FIFO on the device.The TCS3707 proximity sensor embeds IR cross-talk rejection and, when paired with an IR emitter, produces reliable proximity detection. The TCS3707 is supplied in a 2.0 x 2.5 x 0.5mm OQFN package.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous Cypress: Bluetooth MCUs deliver mesh networking with ubiquitous smartphone connectivityNext Azul Systems teams with Eurotech to provide Open Source Java on Eurotech’s embedded boardslast_img read more

Tourism Minister says $1.2 Billion in Place for Projects

first_imgMinister of Tourism and Entertainment, Hon. Dr. Wykeham McNeill, has assured that funding is in place to implement the $1.2 billion transformational development projects, which he announced in his Sectoral Debate presentation on July 2, in the House of Representatives.The Minister pointed out that the plans and activities span several agencies, with gestation periods of up to nine months.Dr. McNeill, who was speaking to journalists at a post-Sectoral Debate press briefing, hosted by Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer, at Jamaica House, on Wednesday, July 3, said the approach taken by the Ministry was to announce the plans when they had been completed, instead of during the planning stages.The projects, being financed by the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) include: the refurbishing and upgrading of the Ocho Rios cruise ship terminal, at a cost of $400 million; lighting of the ‘Elegant Corridor’ in Montego Bay, St. James, at a cost of $400 million; the installation of bicycle tracks and pedestrian pathways along the Norman Manley Boulevard in Negril, at a cost of $170 million; the rehabilitation of the Naval Hospital and the creation of a museum in Port Royal, as well as the upgrading of films shown at a state-of-the-art theatre that has already been established there. Some $220 million has been earmarked for this project.A Memorandum of Understanding has already been signed for implementation of the projects, and the funds transferred to the implementing agencies.Dr. McNeill informed that other areas are being looked at for further development, in the next phase of the transformational projects. These include Falmouth, where he conducted a tour last week. Discussions have also been held regarding projects for Port Antonio, Portland, and Spanish Town, St. Catherine.“There are projects we are doing now, but in the meantime, we are developing the next wave of transformational projects…The actual planning is very detailed, and it will take us some time to roll them out, but we are going to be working on a series of these projects,” he added.Contact: Alphea Saunderslast_img read more

Paul Gallant, chair of the Nova Scotia Arts and Culture Partnership Council, announced today, Sept. 7, that Antoine Landry, the mayor of Caraquet, N.B., has been confirmed as the keynote speaker. “Caraquet was a single-industry town just 50 years ago,” said Mr. Landry, who comes from a large musical family and has been involved for many years in the cultural development of Caraquet. “Today, with the right focus and investment, it has become a community brimming with social, tourism, economic and cultural activities.” Caraquet’s cultural commitment is exemplary for a town of fewer than 5,000 residents. In New Brunswick, it is considered a role model both as a centre for Acadian culture and as an artistically vibrant community, and in 2003, Canadian Heritage awarded it the distinction of Cultural Capital of Canada. “It is an incredible story that demonstrates the importance of arts and culture to the well-being of our communities,” said Mr. Gallant. “We hope it will inspire representatives from Nova Scotia’s arts and culture sector to continue developing, fostering and promoting arts and culture in their communities.” The Arts and Culture Conference and Awards Gala, hosted by the Nova Scotia Arts and Culture Partnership Council, will also feature a number of panelists and presenters. Anyone interested in attending is urged to register right away, as space is limited and filling up quickly. The awards gala, which will celebrate and support the pursuit of excellence, innovation and artistic expression by Nova Scotia artists, will include the presentation of the Portia White Prize, Aliant New Media Prize and Prix Grand-Pré Prize. The deadline for submitting nominations for the Portia White Prize and applications for the Aliant New Media Prize is Friday, Sept. 15. The Nova Scotia Arts and Culture Partnership Council was established in 2003. In consultation with the arts and culture sector, it provides advice and recommendations to guide the Department of Tourism, Culture and Heritage regarding ongoing investment in Nova Scotia’s artists, cultural industries and cultural activities.last_img read more

Plan to revoke H4 visas yet to get final shape US official

first_imgWashington DC: The Trump administration’s decision to rescind work authorisation for H-4 visa holders, a large number of whom are the spouses of high-skilled Indian IT professionals, is yet to get a final shape as the rule making process is incomplete, an official has said. Under the previous Obama administration, certain H-4 workers were allowed to get employment authorisation. However, US President Donald Trump, soon after coming to power, said that he plans to rescind such a rule. Also Read – Merkel warns UK Brexit deal ‘unlikely’ without compromise: LondonThe proposed rule is yet to be formally notified and the Trump administration has delayed the notification a number of times in the past two years. The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) “continues reviewing” all employment-based visa programmes, including the H-4 EADs or employment authorisation card, an official said. H-4 visas are issued to the spouses of H-1B visa holders, a significantly large number of whom are high-skilled professionals from India. “No decision about the Obama administration regulation granting work authorisation to certain H-4 spouses is final until the rule making process is completed,” the official said. Recently, the Department of Homeland Security in its annual spring agenda reiterated the proposal to remove from its regulations certain H-4 spouses of H-1B non-immigrants as a class of aliens eligible for employment authorisation.last_img read more

UNEuropean Union ties can prove that multilateralism works – Ban

26 September 2008The United Nations and the European Union (EU) share a responsibility to show that multilateralism works, that it delivers results and can address current and future crises, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today. “As organizations, the United Nations and the European Union embody a belief in the power of multilateralism,” Mr. Ban told a seminar on UN-EU cooperation in crisis management and security.However, “if we are not effective, or are seen as compromised, competing visions based on more traditional balance of power concepts could take hold. Unilateral action could increase,” he cautioned. To avoid this, the Secretary-General stressed the need to ensure that joint efforts are coherent, noting that, in specific instances, a division of labour may be desirable, based on the strengths and added value of each organization.Also important was better information-sharing, both to keep situations from turning into crises and, once a crisis has erupted, to clarify common objectives.In addition, he emphasized that multilateralism means inclusiveness. “UN-EU cooperation must not be a private club. It should reach out to other regional and subregional organizations, as well as to international financial institutions and civil society actors, to build the global networks required to address today’s crises,” he stated.In a new report released today, the Secretary-General highlighted cooperation between the UN and other regional and intergovernmental organizations, including the African Union (AU), the League of Arab States and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).He noted that the UN and AU have deepened their collaboration with the establishment of the AU-UN Hybrid Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) and the planning and support for the AU Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). Meanwhile, Alexander Stubb, Foreign Minister of Finland and Chairman-in-Office of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), today briefed the Security Council, telling the 15-member body that recent crises, such as last month’s conflict in Georgia, had underlined the critical importance of collaboration between the UN and the OSCE. read more

Kinder Morgans Trans Mountain pipeline shut down after succumbing to second leak

HOPE, B.C. — Kinder Morgan has shut down its Trans Mountain pipeline in British Columbia for the second time in as many weeks, due to an oil leak.The second incident occurred 40 kilometres east of Hope, and it comes the same day the company plans an open house in Metro Vancouver to discuss its proposal to expand the line that runs from Alberta to the port of Vancouver.“We saw some oil staining in the soil,” said company spokesman Andy Galarnyk, describing how company crews discovered the leak.Galarnyk said sensors had pinpointed some kind of trouble on the line.“We were there to investigate this anomaly,” Galarnyk said.“We initiated a precautionary shutdown of the line as that was required by regulation and we are continuing to investigate further.”He could not say how much oil had leaked.On June 12, Kinder Morgan was forced to shut down the pipeline when several barrels of oil seeped from a crack in the line near Merritt, about 120 kilometres north of Hope.Kinder Morgan plans to expand the line to almost triple the capacity and include shipments of diluted bitumen, a heavier, molasses-like oil that critics claim is harder to clean up.The Trans Mountain line currently moves 300,000 barrels per day of various petroleum products across southern B.C.National Energy Board spokeswoman Rebecca Taylor confirmed Kinder Morgan contacted the regulatory agency on Wednesday to report the leak.She said an NEB team was at the scene early Thursday and there were no immediate safety concerns for residents in the rugged, rural area, about 150 kilometres east of Vancouver.“We obviously have an investigation ongoing into the discovery of oil from the 12th of June,” said Taylor.“We will look to determine whether these are isolated incidents or whether they’re similar in nature and whether additional action is taken by the board.”She said NEB and Kinder Morgan crews are working to remove any contaminated soil from the Hope area and remediate the land.The Canadian Press read more

Opposition with common agenda

Among the issues to be highlighted is abolishing the Executive Presidency, strengthening the 17th Amendment to the constitution, implementing the recommendations of the LLRC report, fighting corruption at a National level and also strengthening free health and free education.

He said that accordingly it was agreed that the joint opposition will come together on one stage from August to draw focus to several national issues. Attanayake said that apart from the ‘vipaksha virodi” opposition alliance, several other opposition political parties have also agreed to join the campaign. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Womens Lacrosse McKayla Contis six goals lead Ohio State to 1413 win

Ohio State then-junior attack Molly Wood races up field against Penn State on April 12, 2016 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsThe Ohio State women’s lacrosse team picked up its second win of the season on the road Friday, defeating Binghamton 14-13. The Buckeyes (2-3) capitalized off their 10-day break by holding an advantage over the Bearcats (3-4) in shots, ground balls, and draw controls. Both teams were tied at 7-7 going into the half after Binghamton senior attack Tiffany Ryan  scored with 21 seconds left in the second quarter. After the Buckeyes fell behind 9-7 early in the second half, Ohio State responded with a goal from junior midfielder Baley Parrott, followed by three consecutive goals from junior attack McKayla Conti in the first 10 minutes of the third quarter.Freshman midfielder Lindsay Epstein scored the final goal for Ohio State on a free position shot with 9:28 left in the game. The Bearcats attempted to inch their way closer, but three fouls and two turnovers kept them from a comeback win. The final score of the game came when Binghamton redshirt senior attacker Brianne Arthur cut down Ohio State’s lead to one with less than five minutes left in the half. Conti led Ohio State with a game-high six goals while Parrott had four, along with three draw controls and one caused turnover. Both teams had 10 saves and the Bearcats gave up 18 turnovers compared to the Buckeyes’ 14. Ohio State was 7-for-12 in free position shots while Binghamton was 1-for-3. Ohio State will quickly turnaround to play Massachusetts at noon Sunday at Albright College in Reading, Pennsylvania. read more

National targets for ambulance response times to be abandoned

first_imgNATIONAL TARGETS for the response times by which an ambulance should be dispatched to deal with a life-threatening medical emergency are to be abandoned.The Minister for Health, James Reilly, says alternative methods of evaluating the performance of the ambulance service will be formulated.The decision comes only weeks after HIQA increased its targets for response times for ambulances and medical personnel who are called to a life-threatening cardiac or respiratory emergency.Since January of last year, ambulances responding to such emergencies – known as ‘ECHO’ calls – were due to respond to 75 per cent of calls within 18 minutes and 59 seconds of being alerted. Last month the target was raised to 85 per cent.Separate targets for both ‘ECHO’ and ‘DELTA’ calls, involving life-threatening conditions not involving cardiac or respiratory problems, are that a first responder trained in defibrillator use and minimum life support skills should be dispatched – ahead of an ambulance – within 7 minutes and 59 seconds.In response to a Dáil question from Richard Boyd Barrett, Reilly said the decision to review the analysis criteria was “in line with international views” and also followed other changes including the operation of a trial air ambulance service and the formulation of a Performance Improvement Action Plan by the HSE’s National Ambulance Service.Reilly did not indicate whether HIQA’s current targets had been met, instead referring the query on to the HSE.He said, however, that the use of clinical indicators would “enable a focus” on ECHO and DELTA calls.Responding to similar questions last year, Reilly said the targets for first responders were met for 53.1 per cent of ECHO calls in 2011, while the targets for DELTA calls were met only 28.45 per cent of the time.On that instance Reilly said part of the difficulty in dispatching ambulances in time was the habit of using ambulances to transfer patients between hospitals, which tied them up and left them unavailable to respond to new urgent calls.last_img read more

Mayor Bowser Gets Mixed Reviews

first_imgThe mayor of the District has been in office for half of a year and she has pleased some residents but disappointed others.D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser faces criticism after six months in office. (Photo Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons)D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) took office in January and immediately faced weather challenges and a fatal accident in the Washington Metro transit system at the L’Enfant Plaza Station. She flexed political muscle when both of her candidates in the Ward 4 and 8 D.C. Council races won their seats recently.Two weeks ago, Bowser worked to keep D.C. United, Washington’s D.C. professional soccer team, from moving to Loudoun County, Va., by announcing a stadium deal in the Buzzard Point section of Southwest Washington.However, despite Bowser’s accomplishments in the first six months of her administration, there are some residents who are not happy.“I don’t feel her presence in the community and it is disheartening,” Jauhar Abraham, an anti-gang violence activist who lives in Ward 8, said. “She said that in her last debate as a candidate for mayor that she was going to work with the community regarding public safety. What she does with that is put more police on the streets and I don’t think she understands the tensions between the police and low-income residents.”Abraham said that there is tension between the residents of the Woodland Terrace housing project and nearby neighborhoods and Bowser hasn’t done enough to stem the ill feelings and the violence.“Her approach to the Woodlands is truly off,” he said. “When there is a problem in Ward 8 she sends her MOCR (Mayors Office of Community Relations) worker and while Markus Batchelor is a fine young man he doesn’t understand street culture. This is no criticism of Markus because we want all of our young people to be just like him.”Constance Woody, a longtime resident in Ward 7, has doubts about Bowser and her selection of the ward’s MOCR.“I don’t think she has done much of anything as mayor,” Woody said. “The MOCR here in Ward 7 doesn’t seem to know what he is doing and I have had several interactions with him. To me, he is a reflection of his boss, the mayor.”The MOCRS in Ward 7 are Wendell Felder and Brian Wood.Sandra “S.S.” Seegars, is a former advisory neighborhood commissioner in Ward 8 said that Bowser has not retained quality executive-level personnel.“She should not have let William Howland go,” Seegars said, speaking of the D.C. Department of Public Works director who has worked with three previous mayors. “He was doing a good job cleaning up the snow. I guess now she is going to get her own person.”Bowser has kept D.C. Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson and D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier from the mayoral administration of Vincent C. Gray.Seegars said that Courtney Snowden, the deputy mayor for greater economic opportunity, seems confused about her duties.“I was at a meeting when Snowden was the speaker a few days ago,” she said. “It seems to me that Courtney Snowden doesn’t know what she is supposed to do. I do know that she is a friend of the mayor’s and I guess that is what is important.”Dr. E. Faye Williams, the chair of the National Congress of Black Women, said that she supports Bowser but the mayor needs to improve.“My biggest disappointment is that the city is not a comfortable place to be,” Williams said. “The repair of our streets is horrible and that is everywhere in the city, not just in certain neighborhoods.”Williams said that the city is continuing to develop economically and that is good but she is concerned that the mayor is too focused on certain projects like the soccer stadium.“Many people don’t care about that soccer stadium,” she said. “They want a better quality of life.”Joshua Lopez, a friend of Bowser, said that it is impossible to meet everyone’s expectations.“Mayor Bowser has done some great things in the short time she has been in office,” Lopez said. “She had a budget that addressed affordable housing, a serious problem in this city and she is making progress with improving education in the middle schools.”Lopez said that City Administrator Rashad Young, Deputy Mayor of Planning and Economic Development Brian Kenner and Snowden are great talents. He reminds the mayor’s critics that change will not come overnight.“Mayor Bowser is still working under the previous mayor’s budget but when her budget kicks in this fall, people will see positive change,” he said.The AFRO contacted Bowser’s communications office for comments regarding the criticism of residents for this article but didn’t receive a response by press time.last_img read more

Silent Encounters

first_imgArtist Amit Bharis is all set to take over the Capital with his magical canvases. Bhar belongs to the artistic tradition which is inspired by silent moods and contemplative conditions. His images are easy and uncomplicated, caressed by a mysterious but pleasant feeling. There is no room for strong, emotional outbursts in his works; they are never to be touched by anger, apprehension, anguish, or bitterness. Instead, Bhar’s art takes the course of a pilgrimage or a spiritual sojourn where negative thoughts are systematically filtered and eliminated; and in their place feelings of all-pervasive love, subtlety and gentle playfulness come to rest. Bhar’s works represents a meditative reflection, unburdened ambiance and a nuanced poignancy of an empowered spirit. It is clear that for the artist, creativity is an act of devotion, an act of connection, and a process of sharing. His paintings are acts of revelation, of affection, of softly spoken discourse, of giving as well as receiving. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Bhar chooses the realistic mode for his artistic expression – a mode that is at once, penetrative, insightful and striking. The artist sees and perceives all things made by man and nature with all the care and grace they deserve. His paintings are filled with hues that pleases the eye. Bhar’s skill lies  in mixing colours, perfecting the line and forming a texture. He also captures the nuances of a magical moment, a silent chant, a personalized mantra. Light is his biggest source of stimulation; the shadow, a willing and worthy companion.Bhar’s art is about positive energy and joyous associations, be it with the serene Ganga herself with her sensuous waves and ripples; or the Enlightened One himself exuding both tranquillity and expansion at the same time. Don’t miss this one!When: 1st March till 15th March, 2014Where: ART INDUS, 37, Santushti Shopping Complex, Chanakyapurilast_img read more

Prospective Homebuyers Favor Low Down Payments Fixed Rates

first_imgProspective Homebuyers Favor Low Down Payments, Fixed Rates Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Demand Home Prices Home Sales Investors Lenders & Servicers LendingTree Mortgage Rates Processing Service Providers 2013-06-20 Krista Franks Brock June 20, 2013 401 Views A plurality of prospective homebuyers responding to an industry survey anticipate down payments of less than 15 percent when they purchase a new home. Forty-four percent of respondents anticipate low down payments of no more than 15 percent, while 34 percent foresee paying between 15 and 24 percent of purchase price at closing. [IMAGE]Nineteen percent say they will put down more than 25 percent of their home purchase price when the purchase their next home, according to the survey conducted this May by Research Data Technology on behalf of Charlotte, North Carolina-based “”LendingTree.””:https://www.lendingtree.com/ Data was collected from 600 people planning to purchase a new home sometime in the next year. About 57 percent or respondents will be first-time homebuyers. When it comes to the type of mortgage prospective homebuyers prefer, the plurality–45 percent–favors a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage loan. [COLUMN_BREAK]The 15-year, fixed-rate mortgage was the second-most popular choice with 36 percent of respondents expecting to obtain this type of loan. Seven percent plan to apply for an adjustable-rate loan. The greatest frustrations with the mortgage process include time-consuming paperwork, complex loan terms, and the borrower’s own uncertainty about whether he/she is receiving a fair deal. At the same time, the greatest obstacles to obtaining a mortgage and purchasing a home are prospective buyers’ financial situations and ability to obtain sufficient funds for a down payment, according to LendingTree’s survey. A majority of survey respondents anticipate rising home prices and rising interest rates over the next 12 months, meaning time is of the essence for those planning to purchase a home. Sixty-four percent of prospective homebuyers believe interest rates will rise in the next 12 months, and 68 percent believe home prices will rise over the same time period. “”Increasing home prices are providing would-be sellers with the confidence needed to take action, while rising interest rates are placing a sense of urgency on potential home buyers,”” said Doug Lebda, founder and CEO of LendingTree.””Together this creates a unique window of opportunity for buyers and sellers to take advantage of the market while home prices and rates are still reasonably affordable,”” Lebda said.center_img Share in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicinglast_img read more

Next week, non-veterans will participate in a mandatory three-day minicamp. – / 22 Within a couple of weeks of his mid-January hire, Bruce Arians had rounded out his 21-member coaching staff.He fused together a team of experienced, long-tenured coaches with young, up-and-coming names to create a staff that outnumbered former Arizona Cardinals’ head coach Ken Whisenhunt’s regime by four. Then, Arians said that his staff — one of the largest in the NFL — would take pay cuts in order to up the coach-to-player ratio. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo As OTAs resumed on Monday, Arians spoke highly of his staff and the work they’ve done this offseason.“I’ve been really pleased,” the coach said following Monday’s activities. “The staff has done a phenomenal job, especially in fundamentals and teaching techniques.” Arians went on to speak to the all-around progress that he has seen his coaches put into effect as the changing-of-the-guard process continues.“In each phase, at every position, in each group, we’ve got 95 percent of everything installed, both sides of the ball and the kicking game.”That considered, the coach couldn’t help to reiterate: “I’ve just been really pleased. I can’t say enough good things about this staff.”But he didn’t limit his praise to his fellow coaches. The players, too, Arians insisted, were right on track.“This group is way beyond where I thought they’d be right now,” he said, speaking of the names on his roster.In addition to being generally ahead of schedule with their OTA progress, Arians pointed out the sharpness of his players as they resumed activities after a week off.

In fact,C. scientists were cautiously supportive of the government’s gutsy decision on 15 May to allow BP to squirt tens of thousands of gallons of dispersants a day a mile deep More than a million gallons of Corexit have been released on the sea floor since with another 800000 gallons sprayed by plane on the surface—in what amounts to a major unprecedented experiment Overall the researchers said the move saved vast areas of coastal ecosystems and greatly reduced the amount of oil that would need to be collected or burned Dispersants break the oil into tiny molecules that present tens of thousands of times more surface area than normal crude to microbes to be eaten; the molecules also rise to the surface much more slowly than raw crude Some 50 scientists at a workshop at Louisiana State University predicted these benefits from the dispersants in May signaling their support for the decision the government had made; some dissenters led by Sylvia Earle have said it was too soon to declare it a success But scientists at last week’s congressional briefing said say some important risks to the undersea environment remain: Facebook may be eyeing a significant move into the world of mobile payments The company is close to receiving regulatory approval in Ireland to launch a service that would allow users to store money and make electronic payments through the social network according to a report in the Financial Times Such a service would put Facebook in direct competition with eBay’s PayPal division and Googles Wallet app Facebook has long had an interest in online payments The company launched the virtual currency Facebook Credits in 2011 as a way for users to pay for games on the social network but shuttered the program the next year because it was overly complicated to convert Credits into international currencies Early last year the company debuted Facebook Cards reusable gift cards that can be loaded with credits available in a variety of physical and digital stores In the fall Facebook began a partnership with PayPal to allow users to tie their credit card info to their Facebook login to more quickly make online purchases around the Web A financial payments service that links directly to customers bank accounts would go a step further than past efforts As people become more comfortable performing financial transactions online theres a growing demand for secure payment options especially in emerging markets The new Facebook service will reportedly target those markets where the social network is focusing much of its energies these days (For example: the $19 billion purchase of WhatsApp and the plan to beam affordable Internet to more parts of the world using drones) A Facebook spokesperson declined to comment on the report If successful a payments service would be a huge boon for all parts of Facebooks business Though the company makes most if its money from advertising it pulled in nearly $900 million last year by claiming a fee on transactions carried out via the social network usually for in-app purchases in video games However the migration of casual gaming to mobile apps has caused these fees to decline significantly as an overall portion of Facebooks revenue from 18 percent at the beginning of 2012 to 9 percent at the end of 2013 Expanding the ways people can spend money on Facebook could reverse this trend The service would also make Facebooks ad units more appealing The social network already has a massive trove of personal data on its 12 billion users More information about exactly when users spend money would only drive up the value of this data for crafting targeted ads The company could even incorporate point-of-purchase sales directly into users News Feeds a feature Twitter is currently considering Still users have so far not latched onto Facebook’s previous attempts en masse Meanwhile competitors like Google have lost money in the sector But with other companies like Chinese tech giants Alibaba and Tencent already attempting to merge social networking and commerce this may be another example of Facebook staking a claim in an emerging sector to ensure the survival of its core business Write to Victor Luckerson at victor_luckerson@timeinccomThe settlement of the Indian Ocean’s largest island is one of the great mysteries in humanity’s colonization of the globe Madagascar lies just 400 kilometers off the East African coast Yet the Malagasy people’s cuisine rituals and religious beliefs resemble those of Borneo some 9000 kilometers to the east Their language is more closely related to Hawaiian than to Bantu and about half their genes can be traced to Austronesia—that is Indonesia and the islands of the Pacific Archaeological evidence of this distant connection was lacking however Now new studies—recent or soon-to-be-published—trace a wave of Austronesian colonization between 700 CE and 1200 CE The telltale evidence is in effect breadcrumbs: crops distinctive to Austronesia sprinkled across Madagascar and neighboring islands “We finally have a signal of this Austronesian expansion” said Nicole Boivin an archaeologist and director of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena Germany who discussed the findings at the recent Society for American Archaeology (SAA) meeting here The study by Boivin and her colleagues published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that these voyagers did not stop at Madagascar Some also settled the Comoro Islands scattered between Madagascar and the African coast “The discovery of an Austronesian connection for the Comoros is surprising” says David Burney a paleobiologist at the National Tropical Botanical Garden in Koloa Hawaii who has studied the region Yet the Austronesians stopped short of the African coast “There was a culinary frontier” says Alison Crowther an archaeologist at the University of Queensland St Lucia in Brisbane Australia who led the study Her team collected more than 2400 samples of botanical remains at 20 sites on the African mainland and on offshore islands and Madagascar and obtained 43 radiocarbon dates from crop
