It aims to establish federal oversight of sports betting across the US, with the goal of pushing illegal operators out of the market.It proposes a system under which US states must have their sports betting regulations approved by the Department of Justice. Each state would be required to submit an application setting out their proposed regulatory framework, as well as nominating a body to regulate the market.Each state’s attorney general or chief legal officer would also be required to provide assurances that the proposals, to the best of their knowledge, would allow for effective oversight of the state’s sports betting market.The US Attorney General would then have 180 days to assess and approve the plan, or reject it if they feel it does not set out a plan for effectively regulating the market. Upon approval, the regulations would be valid for three years, after which the states must apply for a renewal.Applicants would have to adhere to a series of standards set out in the Senators’ bill. States would be permitted to offer in-person wagering and online wagering, either restricted to state borders or across borders as long as a compact with another jurisdiction has been established. These compacts must also be approved by the US Attorney General.All states would have to use geolocation technology to ensure only customers located within approved borders can place wagers. Each state must also establish approved criteria for events on which wagers can be placed; all must be verifiable, generated by a reliable and independent process, and unlikely to be affected by betting.The bill also prohibits wagering on amateur sports, with exceptions for the Olympic Games, Paralympic Games, Pan-American Games and certain intercollegiate sports. States would also have the power to give operators notice that they are unable to offer wagering on certain events.In spite of all the talk of so-called integrity fees for the US professional sports leagues being included in the legislation, this appears to have been excised. However, the bill does mandate that all licensed sports betting operators must only use data provided either directly from the leagues, or authorised resellers, until December 31, 2024.It sets out a number of social responsibility measures, such as controls regarding bonus terms and conditions, which must be made clear to all participants, while advertising must include responsible gambling information.Each state that regulates sports betting would also be required to establish a self-exclusion database for players. This would feed into a national self-exclusion database, which would be administered by the National Sports Wagering Clearinghouse, a new non-profit organisation.The National Sports Wagering Clearinghouse will also be responsible for upholding sports betting integrity, monitoring activity for suspicious transactions and gathering anonymised sports betting data. It would also work on ways of tackling gambling addiction.The body would be funded via a federal excise tax on sports betting handle that has been in place since 1982 and, according to the bill, would be 0.25% of handle. This is estimated to bring in around $12m a year, with this sum set to rise as more states pass regulations.The funds raised from this excise tax will be deposited into the Wagering Trust Fund, with $3m to be used to fund the Clearinghouse, and $5m for the monitoring and treatment of gambling addiction.At the time of writing, the Sports Wagering Market Integrity Act of 2018 is yet to be assigned an official number or assigned to committee.“This bill is the first step toward ensuring that sports betting is done right in the states that choose to legalize it,” Hatch commented. “Just as importantly, it provides protections for states that choose not to go down that path. For the better part of this year, I have engaged with and learned from stakeholders on all sides of this issue – the gaming industry, professional and amateur sports leagues, consumer advocates, data providers, law enforcement, and many others.  The result of those discussions is a comprehensive bill that tackles numerous, complex issues and includes provisions to protect the interests of each of those stakeholders.”Schumer added that he felt Congress had an obligation to act following the repeal of PASPA to ensure the integrity of sports was not compromised.“That is why I believe the time is now to establish a strong national integrity standard for sports betting that will protect consumers and the games themselves from corruption,” he explained. “The bipartisan legislation that Senator Hatch and I have introduced, follows the principles laid out in the federal framework that I released in August and will serve as solid foundation upon which we build the appropriate guardrails around the burgeoning sports betting industry.“I will strongly advocate for this bill to move forward and for Congress to vote to pass federal legislation very soon.”last_img read more

If I had to pick out the worst-performing investments of 2020, the IAG (LSE: IAG) share price and easyJet (LSE: EZJ) share price would have to be strong contenders.In a year in which global air travel came to a virtual standstill, these two firms saw their sales and net income plunge. Both companies, which were formally some of the most fiscally healthy airlines in Europe, have had to rush to raise funds from investors to keep the lights on and planes in the sky.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…However, as the world starts to move on from the pandemic, I think these investments may begin to shine again in 2021. And with that being the case, I’m beginning to wonder if I should back the IAG share price and that of its smaller peer in the new year.Major headwinds Before the pandemic, easyJet was considered to be one of Europe’s best-run airlines. Now it’s not so clear.Nevertheless, what is clear is the fact that the group has managed to maintain its brand reputation. When the air travel market opened briefly over the summer, consumers flocked to the company. This helped support the easyJet share price, as it bought in some much-needed cash.Based on this, I think that if the business does manage to weather the storm, it could be a good investment in 2021. The company has claimed it has enough funding to get it through the pandemic in the near term. That’s incredibly positive. If true, when sales start to pick up again in the new year, easyJet could achieve a faster recovery than its peers.By comparison, I don’t think the IAG share price presents such an attractive proposition. The owner of the British Airways brand doesn’t have the same level of flexibility as its smaller peer. That’s something that concerns me.IAG share price concernsIAG’s flagship BA brand harvests the majority of its revenues from the lucrative Atlantic market between London and New York. The company controls most of the landing slots on this route in the UK, which gives it a strong competitive advantage.But in other markets, it doesn’t have a similar advantage. This could prove to be a problem over the next few years as other airlines fight each other for customers. Speaking from personal experience, I know that the BA offering is more expensive than that of easyJet across Europe, with the same level of comfort. In an economic recovery, consumers are unlikely to want to pay more for a similar product.As such, while I do believe the IAG share price could yield positive total returns for investors in the long run, I’d rather own the easyJet share price. In my opinion, the latter’s product should appeal to consumers much more in economic recovery. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Should I back the IAG and easyJet share prices in 2021? I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Long live a free Puerto Rico!

first_imgBerta Joubert-CeciWW photo: G. DunkelExcerpted from a talk by Berta Joubert-Ceci to the Workers World Party national conference in New York City, Nov. 15-16.We are seeing the effects and the consequences of this stage of capitalism — what we have called “capitalism at a dead end.” The intensification of the attacks at all levels on working people, on the oppressed and on the masses in general. The U.S. wars against the peoples abroad.The racist police murders of our Black and Brown youth, carried out with impunity. Attacks on migrant children and workers, layoffs and, in general, a war on the poor. And the pauperization of the population.Oscar LópezBut how does this manifest in the only “formal” colony of the United States in the Latin America-Caribbean region? In Puerto Rico, my homeland. Why is it important for us to study this?While many Latin American countries are gaining independence from Washington’s domination, Puerto Rico is slipping backwards. It’s losing population to Florida and Texas, while many people from the U.S. buy low-priced property on the island. It’s like a substitution of the population, similar to Hawaii’s history. Some 3,000 people a month migrate to the USA from Puerto Rico. Many are youths, often graduates of higher education — the future of the island! More Puerto Ricans live in the U.S. now than on the island.Puerto Rico’s experience concentrates all the effects of capitalism at a dead end.Norberto González ClaudioThere is an economic but also a social crisis.The amount of the country’s external debt gives an idea of the economic crisis: It’s close to $76 billion and unpayable! As a colony, we have no sovereignty — we cannot even file for bankruptcy. The U.S.-imposed constitution establishes that the bondholders must be paid first — before the needs of the population. The government of the island is just a servant of U.S. corporate interests and does not challenge that inhumane law.With few exceptions, the whole island has been privatized. Telephone, health care, roads, the international airport, our precious pineapple plantations.The cost of utilities has risen. Sales taxes have been imposed in a futile effort to pay the debt. Salaries are much lower than in the United States while most products are more expensive. Why? Because U.S.-imposed shipping laws forbid shipping with non-U.S. vessels. More than 80 percent of the food is imported.The people of Puerto Rico are being squeezed, resulting in an increase of violence at all levels.Solidarity needed nowComrades, it is a profound crisis. And that is why we should discuss it so we can give the solidarity that is needed now.The Boricuas have always been a fighting people. Starting with our Taíno warriors — Urayoán, Guarionex, Agueybaná — who revolted against the Spanish ­colonizers.U.S. colonization suppressed our real history and our heroes. These included Ramón Emeterio Betances, an internationalist, the father of the homeland and the independence movement. He organized the uprising against Spain and against slavery both in Puerto Rico and Haiti, and he participated in the French revolts. He advocated unity of the Antilles, much like Simón Bolívar did in Latin America. However, most Puerto Ricos don’t know him.The colonization process was meant to belittle the people, to make them feel dependent on Washington. Yet, an independence movement has always existed. With figures like Albizu Campos, Lolita Lebrón, Rafael Cancel Miranda and so many others.The colonizers always penalized those fighting for independence. Local police, FBI and all U.S. repressive forces target independence activists. We will never forget how in 2005 an FBI team was sent to the island to kill Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, the leader of Los Macheteros, an independence group. On a special day for the independence movement, Sept. 23 — known as Grito de Lares — the FBI shot him and let him bleed to death. And we will never forget how all Puerto Rican political prisoners have been charged with the same “seditious conspiracy” to overthrow the U.S. government.Recent movements like “the peoples’ strike” to prevent the privatization of the telephone company, the “U.S. Navy out of Vieques” and the University of Puerto Rico student strike demonstrate the people’s will to come together and fight back. Something similar is happening now with the demand for freedom for Oscar López, who has been 33 years in a Yankee cell.Along with the independence movement itself, now with the capitalist crisis two of the most militant and active movements on the island are the one headed by the UTIER — the electricity workers who are defending the electric company from privatization — and the teachers fighting against public school closings, both part of the anticolonial struggle. The Boston Consulting Group is demanding the schools close.It is important that we here show full solidarity with these struggles, as we did during the successful struggle to get the U.S. Navy out of Vieques.The people of Puerto Rico will continue fighting, but remember: The majority of Puerto Ricans are part of the working class inside this country. We have to join them in solidarity both here and in Puerto Rico. And demand the freedom of political prisoner Oscar López Rivera and Norberto González Claudio.I summon the forces of Urayoán, Guarionex, Betances, Filiberto and Lolita to help me say ¡Viva Puerto Rico Libre!¡Free Oscar and Norberto!Long live international solidarity! Workers of the world, unite!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Discriminatory use of official advertising in Kashmir

first_imgNews February 20, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Discriminatory use of official advertising in Kashmir April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 News Organisation IndiaAsia – Pacific to go further March 3, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information The English-language private daily Kashmir Observer, published in Srinagar (north-west India), has been experiencing serious financial difficulties ever since the Jammu and Kashmir state government decided to stop purchasing advertising space in the publication’s pages.Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) is concerned about the consequences of the new provincial government’s discriminatory policies, which could have grave long-term implications for the pluralism of information in the Kashmir region. The organisation has asked Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, Jammu and Kashmir’s Chief Minister, to distribute official advertising among the media of the province in an equitable manner free of political criteria.At the end of January 2003, the provincial government stopped buying advertising space in the Kashmir Observer newspaper. Some officials confirmed to the newspaper’s editorial staff that the paper had been crossed off the list of media entitled to these contracts. In an editorial dated 15 January 2003, Sajjad Haider, editor and publisher of the Kashmir Observer, had already objected to the provincial government’s attitude toward his newspaper and their delayed payments for official publicity. “This reluctance to pay advertising invoices is a subtle and insidious form of coercion. The government needs to be reminded that newspapers here are working solely to protect public interest,” he wrote. Sajjad Haider is the son-in-law of Molvi Abbas Ansari, one of the leaders of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (a separatist alliance). This family tie could well be the motive behind this boycott. The newspaper has also been suspected of illegally holding funds from abroad that are being used to aid the separatist movement.As a result of the conflict that has been tearing Kashmir apart since 1990, the largest companies have been leaving the province, thus depriving the media of advertising income. Official advertising and announcements therefore represent the main source of financing for Indian dailies like the Kashmir Observer.center_img IndiaAsia – Pacific News Follow the news on India News India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media Receive email alerts RSF_en February 23, 2021 Find out more Indian journalist wrongly accused of “wantonly” inaccurate reportinglast_img read more

This is the real first step in the appointment process,” said Mayor Victor Gordo.Originally the committee was scheduled to make selections based on the applications and send the candidates to the City Council, but Tyron Hampton asked for interviews with the nominations before they were sent to council.Mayor Gordo and Councilmember Steve Madison agreed with the idea.“We are looking for fairness and people with a willingness to look at all sides of the issue,” Gordo said. “I think it’s fair to ask questions of the candidates and get a response.”Local residents have called for citizen oversight of the police department since the early 1990s. After the commission is in place, Pasadena will have more oversight and advisory bodies related to its Police Department than most other departments –members of local community organizations for the city’s Police Oversight Commission.City Clerk Mark Jomsky’s office received 31 letters and four public speaker cards.Marshall McKenzie and Serrano received the majority of the support from that correspondence.The City Council approved the commission, along with an auditor in October after voting down an alternate version that would have granted the commission subpoena power.The council moved to provide more civilian oversight in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of a former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin on May 25, as well as a number of officer-involved deaths in Pasadena over the past several years.Following Floyd’s death, cities around the country, including Pasadena, erupted in highly emotional protests, marches, and occasional acts of violence.Chauvin, who was fired following the incident, is presently on trial for Floyd’s murder.The purpose of the commission, according to the city’s website, “is to enhance, develop, and strengthen community-police relations, and review and make recommendations regarding the ongoing operations of the police department to the chief of police, city manager, and/or city council.” Top of the News Business News STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News More Cool Stuff 21 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Lower ramps blamed for return to speeding

Tarentum school: Then and now

first_img Published 7:46 pm Friday, October 24, 2014 Sponsored Content “We got our basic education at Tarentum School and, for some of us, that was just about the extent of our formal education,” Mobley said. “After I graduated from Tarentum School, I only got to go Brundidge one year because my daddy was a sharecropper and he needed me to help work on the farm. It was like that for a lot of the boys.”For the students at Tarentum School, the opportunity to go to school was greatly appreciated. For many of them it was a welcome diversion from their daily chores.“School didn’t keep us from going to the fields and doing other work around the farm, but it did give us something to look forward to,” Mobley said. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) Tarentum school: Then and now Students pose in front of the former Tarentum community school. Classmates recently gathered to reminisce about the school’s impact on their community and their lives.If the walls of the old Tarentum Schoolhouse could talk, oh, the tales they could tell.“That’s why they tore in down,” Wallace Mobley, an organizer of the Tarentum School Reunion, said laughing.Between 75 and 100 alumni of Tarentum School gathered at the Tarentum Community Building Saturday to renew friendships and pay tribute to the school that laid the foundation for who they are today. By Blood Sugar Blaster Mobley said “Miss’ Pete Galloway was the in charge of the school cafeteria and she fed the students well.“Some of us had to help in the cafeteria and “Miss” Pete made us wear hairnets to serve,” Wallace said. “We didn’t like it but we did it, without question.”The school was heated, first with potbellied stoves, and later modern radiators were installed.“We never got so modern that we had indoor toilets,” Mobley said. “We had long outhouses, one for the boys and one for the girls. They had wood walls in front of each of them for privacy.”Winnie Merle Helton said that it was at the girls’ outhouse that she learned about the birds and the bees.“Mary Helen would tell us jokes but we wouldn’t understand the jokes and she would have to explain them to us. Of course, we had a lot of questions and she could answer them all,” Helton said, laughing. “If it hadn’t been for Mary Helen and the outhouse, our sex education would have gone lacking.”Tarentum School was the traditional kind of “old timey” school. Each morning started with a devotional followed with prayer and then a salute to the flag.School assemblies were held each Friday and were highly anticipated happenings.“The whole school would go to the assembly and, if you had a talent, you could take the stage,” Helton said. “Don Avant and Joey Lewis would always sing and that’s all I’ll say about that.“There wasn’t much to do around Tarentum so we looked forward to anything. Many Saturday nights, Minifee Cressgal would come to the auditorium and show a cowboy movie – Tom Mix, Johnny Mac Brown, Gene Autrey — on a projector with two big reels. Usually it was a double feature and that was a big event for all of us.”Box suppers were also big events at Tarentum School. The women in the community would decorate boxes and fill them with a supper fit for a king.“The men would bid on the boxes and then get to share the one they won with the lady who had cooked it,” Helton said. “Box suppers were popular community events.”Addie Pearl Johnson was the most senior Tarentum School alumnus in attendance at Saturday’s school reunion. But, she said going to school at Tarentum was not much different when she started there in first grade.“We had one teacher for three different grades and we read about Dick and Jane,” she said. “We wrote in lined, blue tablets with a horse’s head on the cover. That was about all we had except for a few color crayons. But we loved school and were happy to be there.”Johnson said recess was a favorite part of the school day.“We all went outside at one time but the boys usually went over on one side of the grounds and the girls on the other,” she said. “We played simple games like dodge ball and farmer in the dell.“ And, we jumped rope. We loved jump rope.”The children took their lunches and, if the weather cooperated, they went outside and either ate on the grass out in the sunshine or under the shade tree where it was cool.Johnson said, when she was at Tarentum School, the students “did a lot of memorizing.”“We memorized songs and poems mainly but we also had to memorize a lot of our history lessons, important speeches and things like that,” she said.“I always liked the morning devotionals and the assemblies where we sang. We didn’t have a piano. We just opened our mouths and sang.”Although Tarentum School wasn’t a big school, it was a good school and prepared the students well.“That’s why we keep wanting to come back,” Mobley said. “We really appreciate the education we got at Tarentum School. It made us who we are.”Helton said most of the students who attended Tarentum School were not wealthy in a monetary kind of way.“We were po’ but we didn’t know any better,” Helton said, laughing, and then added in all seriousness, “but we wouldn’t take anything in the world for our raising.”A chorus of “amens” came behind that. Latest Stories Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day The teachers at Tarentum School taught two or three grades in the same classroom. The teachers of note at Tarentum School were “Miss” Louise Chambers, “Miss” Coggins, and “Miss” Mamie Dubose, who was also the principal and only carried the threat of a big stick.“We were proud to be a school so we behaved,” said Karo McWaters. “We didn’t get into too much trouble.”Jo Harris explained the children knew they had better behave “because if we didn’t we knew what we’d get when we got home.”The students all agreed that the teacher was always in the right and, if they got in the wrong, a whipping would be waiting for them when they got home.” Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Hunters takes aim at London float

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Hunters takes aim at London float previous nextAgencies & PeopleHunters takes aim at London floatHunters is set to float on the AIM Market, while Benham and Reeves claims to now be London’s largest independent letting agency.PROPERTYdrum25th June 20150590 Views Hunters is preparing to float on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange to take advantage of the improving residential property market.The large estate agency firms, which has over 150 branches, the vast majority of which are franchised, has already appointed Numis Securities as Nominated Adviser and Broker with a view to start trading on AIM by the end of next week.Kevin Hollinrake (left), the Chairman of Hunters, who was recently elected as a Conservative MP, said, “Hunters is a highly ambitious company. Our success to date has been born out of our focus on providing our customers with an exceptional service combined with local market knowledge. The Group is excited about its next chapter as a public company. This status will help to further enhance the Hunters brand and provide access to capital to accelerate business growth.”Hunters last week welcomed Norfolk-based Kudos Residential to its fast growing network estate agents. All seven of Kudos Residential’s branches, located across the county, including the main towns and cities of Norwich and Great Yarmouth, have all been rebranded.Glynis Frew (right), Managing Director of Hunters Property Group, said, “This is another exciting milestone for Hunters. As we continue to widen our reach, we are delighted to have Kudos Residential on-board and look forward to what promises to be a very successful future working together under the Hunters umbrella. This compliments our branch opening in Bungay, Suffolk in October 2014 – which saw us break into the East Anglian market for the very first time.”Kudos Residential’s seven-strong network encompasses offices in Norwich, Hellesdon, Brundall, Poringland, Long Stratton, Great Yarmouth and Gorleston.Chris Starkings, Director of Kudos Residential, said, “Through the opening of new offices and the acquisition of other local estate agents, we have grown organically to become Norfolk’s largest independent agent; with customer service at our heart.“It is unusual to see a business of Hunters size, which is so service driven and we wanted to partner with someone who had the same values as ourselves. The national network that Hunters offers is of huge benefit to our local offices – particularly the reach it has in London.”Meanwhile, Benham and Reeves Residential Lettings claims that it is poised to become London’s largest independent letting agency with the opening of two new offices in Hammersmith and in Wapping.“While some of our competitors are closing offices and just operating through a website, we feel there is nothing like face-to-face contact and a handshake,” said Managing Director Anita Mehra. “These new offices will allow us to ensure customer service is always at the forefront.”Glynis Frew London float London Stock Exchange lettings Kevin Hollinrake Hunters AIM market Benham and Reeves June 25, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Praise for additional rent protections

first_imgDear Editor:The Dec. 11 edition recently reported on additional tenant protections in our city. For seniors 2 percent, and other residents, 3 percent. I applaud Mayor Stack and all the commissioners for extending this to those living on fixed incomes or those struggling to pay their rent.Our residents should also check out the website, Twitter, or Facebook for Phil Murphy, candidate for governor.His website states that a minimum wage earner in NJ works at least 100 hours to rent an “average” 1-bedroom apartment. Candidate Murphy supports a minimum wage of $15. I do too.A minimum wage is roughly 50 percent below what’s needed for essentials.Moreover, this website declares that Gov. Christie has not provided enough aid to seniors and low-and-middle class income levels.Strengthening the minimum wage would “benefit about one million workers,” according to the website.I support Phil Murphy on these and other issues and refer readers to his website for more information and fact-checking.As Trump enters office, I plan to volunteer for Phil Murphy’s campaign and to say “no” to insider politics and “no” to Gov. Christie.Sincerely, Tony Squirelast_img read more

Finsbury UK bakery sales down 1.4% in full-year figures

first_imgDeclining prices have contributed to a 1.4% drop in UK bakery turnover at Finsbury Food Group.Like-for-like group turnover at the cake, bread and morning goods supplier fell 1.1% on a constant currency basis to £314.3m, the business has reported in an update on trading for the full financial year ended 1 July 2017. Taking into account currency, group sales rose 0.3%.Finsbury said the decline in UK bakery sales had slowed from 2.9% in the first half of the year to a 0.1% increase in the second half. The company added that trading in the UK bakery division was stronger in the second half of the year versus the full 2016 financial year as prices had started to rise again.Sales in Finsbury’s overseas division rose 17.3% – although 15.1% of this was from exchange rates – and had mitigated the effect of the euro on the UK business.“Ongoing product innovation and improvements in efficiency and productivity, together with the benefits of the group’s capital investment programme, has played an important role in addressing the previously noted industry-wide challenges,” reported the company.Finsbury had previously stated it would have to put up prices, and today’s (17 July) trading update reported that the business had had “productive discussions” with its customers on this during the period.It added that it continued to monitor and review the need for further action in light of cost spikes such as the current issue with butter, which has more than doubled in price in the past 12 months.The trading update added that, despite the current pressures on the industry, Finsbury was “well equipped” to deliver growth and improved shareholder value.“The hard work undertaken in prior periods has ensured that we have maintained our course, with the benefits of having a diversified business across channels and geography coming to the fore,” said Finsbury chief executive John Duffy.“Considering the pressures the industry faces, we are very pleased to have grown revenue and are confident the group is well positioned to maintain its strong market position and continue to deliver shareholder returns.”last_img read more

Green Mountain Coffee HQ to remain in VT, new plant under development

first_imgSource: August 17, 2009. WATERBURY, Vt.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Following announcements that they would be moving their corporate headquarters from Waterbury, Vermont, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters have revealed that the company will nonetheless remain in Vermont.According to the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters had been planning to relocate out of state, possibly to Seattle, Boston, or Tennessee. The company ultimately chose not to leave Vermont, although it declined to explain what factors were involved in its final decision, or what towns and cities were being considered for the new headquarters.The company said that its CEO, legal department, information technology, finance and corporate-responsibility teams, in addition to sections of human resources, will all be making the move. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters also said that the move would not lesson the importance of their Waterbury facility. The product development team will expand into Waterbury and the village will serve as base for the special coffee business unitGreen Mountain Coffee Roasters also announced that it has chosen Sumner, Washington as the future location for a new manufacturing and distribution facility for its specialty coffee Business unit. The new leased site will support the continued expansion of the Tully s Coffee brand and wholesale business, the national expansion of other brands and the growth of the company s single-cup business. We are extremely excited about joining the Sumner community and are grateful for the support we received from the State of Washington Department of Commerce, the Economic Development Board for Tacoma-Pierce County and the City of Sumner, said Jon Wettstein, VP of Supply Chain Operations for GMCR s Specialty Coffee Business Unit. Our investment in a new, modern site in Sumner will complement our existing facilities in our home state of Vermont and in Knox County, Tennessee. It will allow us to accommodate the significant growth and expansion we are planning for the Tully s business, as well as for the expansion of our other brands on the West Coast.The Sumner site is the latest in a series of expansions for GMCR s Specialty Coffee Business Unit. In 2007, new K-Cup production lines were added to its Waterbury plant, and the Company opened a second manufacturing site in Essex, Vermont. In September 2008, the Company opened a facility in Knox County, TN and is in the process of expanding operations there. The Sumner facility is expected to be operational this fall. There are many great cities in Washington, and after an extensive search, GMCR chose Sumner, said Mayor Dave Enslow. That is quite an honor for us, and we re so pleased to welcome GMCR as part of our community. last_img read more

TVA to consider closing two more coal plants

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Utility Dive:The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Board of Directors approved a 1.5% rate hike on Wednesday, along with a $10.5 billion budget for the upcoming fiscal year, but most importantly announced they would review its generation fleet with an eye towards shutting down older coal plants.According to S&P Global, the review will first focus on two older, low-efficiency coal plants: the 950 MW Bull Run unit and 1,150 MW Paradise Unit 3.TVA has six coal plants in operation, with 26 units. Coal makes up about 25% of its generation fleet capacity, down from almost 60% a decade ago.Although the utility is working to close less-efficient plants, coal will remain a significant part of its operations for at least the next decade. Looking out to 2027, based on the 2018 budget, the utility expects coal to still make up more than 20% of its portfolio.More: TVA to raise rates, will consider closing older coal plants TVA to consider closing two more coal plantslast_img read more

Muscle Confusion

first_imgIt’s actually hard to type this right now because my forearms are so sore.  My forearms, my fingers, my elbows…all sore. This is what I get for trying new things. It was raining during Tequila Tuesday, that beautiful night of the week when a bunch of dads get together to drink booze and ride bikes. We try to be socially minded mountain bikers, so when it rains, we don’t ride. So we went climbing. Fortunately, there’s a new climbing gym in town seems to have been built specifically for a rainy Tequila Tuesday, the Smoky Mountain Adventure Center. Not only does it have a plethora of bouldering and sport routes, it has a bar with half a dozen local taps hovering above all of those color-coded holds. You couldn’t create a better rendezvous for a group of dads looking to burn some calories and crush some beers while talking about falconry (more on that later).I used to climb quite a bit, but I’ve been so caught up in skiing through the winter, and biking now that the weather has turned, that I’ve neglected rock entirely. So yeah, I’m sore. I don’t care how much I run, or hit the gym, or bike, the only way you can get into climbing shape is by climbing. There’s nothing else like it. The action uses muscles I didn’t’ even know I had. I believe Tony Horton, the trainer from those P90X tapes, calls it muscle confusion.Consider my muscles confused.We took turns knocking out the easiest bouldering routes on the walls, while shirtless dudes crawled their way up inverted sport routes 30 feet above the padded floor. None of us are good climbers, but we had a blast trying and failing on V2 routes that pushed us to our limits. Then we played a game of tag, where one person traversed a section of the wall, and a second person chased after him after a 15 second head start. Then we drank beers in the bar above the action and talked about how much fun it was to do something different. Maybe we should keep trying new things each week? Mountain biking one week, climbing the next. Maybe skeet shooting and falconry. That seems cool. We could train falcons to run errands for us and retrieve beers. We could buy matching leather mitts and name our birds after ‘80s cartoons, like Voltron and Thundercat. Like Tony Horton says, it’s all about Muscle Confusion.last_img read more

President’s final budget proposal promotes increased access to retirement plans

first_imgPresident Obama’s final fiscal year budget proposal is a record $4.1 trillion package that includes provisions to increase access to retirement plans and portability of retirement benefits.Many of the President’s retirement plan provisions in his final budget proposal were included in previous budget proposals but were not acted upon, reflecting the difficulty that the Obama administration has had in moving retirement plan legislation through Congress. The Obama administration included two new provisions in its final budget proposal, both aimed at increasing access to retirement plans.One proposal would allow for the creation of open multiple employer plans that would permit unaffiliated employers to offer benefits through a single plan. Under current law, employers that participate in multiple employer plans are often employers that have some type of affiliation, such as belonging to the same trade or business association. The administration’s proposal would eliminate this “common bond” requirement.Allowing unaffiliated employers to participate in a single multiple employer plan, which would be treated as a single plan under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), would make it easier and less costly for small employers to offer tax-qualified retirement benefits to their employees. The administration believes that if it can reduce the complexities and costs associated with maintaining a retirement plan, small businesses will be more willing to offer retirement plans to their employees.The administration’s other new proposal is intended to encourage state retirement savings initiatives, such as the Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program. The Department of Labor (DOL) has recently proposed regulations and guidance to move forward with state-based retirement savings initiatives consistent with ERISA regulations. To further encourage these initiatives, the administration proposes to set aside $6.5 million to allow a handful of states to pilot and evaluate state-based 401(k)-type programs and automatic enrollment IRAs.All of the other retirement plan provisions in the President’s final budget proposal were included in previous budget proposals. Following are the major provisions that would affect IRAs.Required Minimum Distributions for Roth IRAs Roth IRAs would be subject to the same required minimum distribution (RMD) rules as Traditional IRAs. The proposal would require IRA owners to begin receiving RMDs from Roth IRAs in the year that they attain age 70½ and would no longer permit Roth IRA contributions after reaching age 70½.Automatic IRA Program Employers in business for at least two years that have 10 or more employees would be required to offer an automatic IRA option. Employers sponsoring a qualified retirement plan, simplified employee pension (SEP) plan, or savings incentive match plan for employees of small employers (SIMPLE) plan would not be required to offer an automatic IRA option. Under the administration’s proposal, annual contributions would be made to the IRAs on a payroll deduction basis. Employers would facilitate employee contributions using their existing payroll deduction systems, but no employer contributions would be required.Deductibility of Retirement Savings Plan ContributionsAnother administration proposal would limit the tax value of specified deductions or exclusions from adjusted gross income and all itemized deductions.The tax value of the exclusion for employee contributions would be reduced to a maximum of 28 percent for defined contribution retirement plans and IRAs instead of allowing taxpayers to exclude the contributions from the full 33 percent, 35 percent, or 39.6 percent that they would otherwise owe. Taxpayers in the 28 percent and lower brackets would be unaffected. This same provision also would limit the tax value of contributions made by these upper-income taxpayers to health savings accounts and Archer medical savings accounts.Limited Payout Options for Nonspouse BeneficiariesNonspouse beneficiaries of retirement plans and IRAs would be required to take distributions over a period of no more than five years. Under current law, depending on the original IRA owner’s date of death and whether there is a designated beneficiary under the plan, a nonspouse beneficiary may be able to take payments over his or her own life expectancy.Nonspouse Beneficiary Rollovers to Inherited IRAsThe options available to a nonspouse beneficiary under an employer-sponsored retirement plan or IRA for moving inherited plan or IRA assets to an inherited IRA would be expanded to allow 60-day rollovers (i.e., indirect rollovers) of such assets.No RMDs for Some TaxpayersRMDs would be eliminated if the aggregate value of an individual’s IRA and other tax-favored retirement plan accumulations does not exceed $100,000 on a measurement date. The RMD requirements would phase in ratably for individuals with aggregate retirement benefits between $100,000 and $110,000.Other ProvisionsOther provisions in the administration’s budget proposal would cap tax-advantaged retirement savings plan accumulations, expand penalty-free withdrawals from tax-qualified plans and IRAs for long-term unemployed individuals, limit Roth conversions to pretax dollars, and modify the cost-of-living adjustments to prevent deflationary adjustments.Chance of Becoming LawThe prospect for passing any of the President’s retirement savings proposals looks dim. The general consensus is that the Obama administration budget was dead on arrival on Capitol Hill, but the White House has expressed hope that it can obtain bipartisan support for a number of the President’s initiatives.That may be difficult with Republicans in control of both houses of Congress and the President’s lame-duck status, and given that many of his retirement savings proposals were included in previous budget packages and were not acted upon. Add that it’s a presidential election year with a highly polarized electorate, the prospect of a long drawn-out primary season for both parties with potential implications for down-ballot races, and a Supreme Court vacancy thrown in for good measure and it may be nearly impossible. Stay tuned. 24SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Dennis Zuehlke Dennis is Compliance Manager for Ascensus.

Authorities dismiss as hoax Facebook post on death of volunteers at COVID-19 hospital

first_imgThe post, which also featured purported photos of the two, was later taken down, but a screengrab of the Facebook post has since been circulating through other social media platforms, including Twitter.Human rights activists Nursyahbani Katjasungkana reposted the screenshot of the Facebook post on her Twitter account on Wednesday.Jika relawan saja tdk memperoleh perlindungan yg cukup, trus gimana pak Menkes? pic.twitter.com/x64AGu8SvZ— Nursyahbani K (@kicaunuri) April 1, 2020The head of the makeshift hospital’s COVID-19 task force, commander Brig. Gen. Agung Hermawanto, said authorities had not received any report regarding the information.”We currently have approximately 300 volunteers working at the emergency hospital, and so far, we have received no report on the death of volunteers,” Agung told The Jakarta Post. Authorities have dismissed as a hoax a rumor that two volunteers at Jakarta’s makeshift hospital for COVID-19 in the Kemayoran athletes village had died after contracting the coronavirus disease.The information began with a post on a Facebook account set up under the name Andriana Nova Grantina, in which the apparent account holder said her senior, named Sia Ai Hung, and the latter’s sister, Sia Ai, had died of COVID-19 on Monday and Wednesday, respectively.”Both of them were volunteers at the Kemayoran athletes village emergency hospital,” said the post published on Wednesday. Echoing Agung, the Joint Defense Area Command I commander Vice Adm. Yudo Margono said the information was a hoax.”We have checked the information through the BPPSDM’s [Board for Development and Empowerment Human Health Resources] database, and there are no volunteers under the names [Sia Ai Hung and Sia Ai] in the athlete village’s emergency hospital,” Yudo Margono told the Post.Yudo also assured the public that any information related to the makeshift hospital would be directly reported to him, so there would not be any missing information on the situation in the field.He went on to deplore circulating “fake news” regarding the hospital in social media in recent days.Read also: Why the novel coronavirus became a social media nightmareLast week, information purportedly telling people how to get into the emergency hospital at the Kemayoran athletes village through a designated doctor’s phone number was also circulating on social media, and later turned out to be a hoax.Jakarta Military Command chief Maj. Gen. Eko Margiyono, who has been appointed to lead the operation of the makeshift hospital, has also spoken out against circulating hoaxes, calling on residents to trust the government’s information and advice in the battle against COVID-19.”I demand that whoever is making such hoaxes stop their actions, as it will only make the situation worse,” Eko said as quoted by news agency Antara on March 26.He also advised people to not panic over information circulating on social media and reassured the public that the hospital was properly equipped with supporting facilities, including a safe-handling service and self-quarantine facility.Jakarta Police spokesperson Yusri Yunus said that 43 hoaxes regarding COVID-19 were under police investigation and had resulted in the arrest of seven suspects so far, all of whom were charged under the 2016 Electronic Information and Transactions (ITE) Law, kompas.com reported.Since it began operations last week, the makeshift hospital at the athletes village has treated some 428 patients, 111 of whom have tested positive for COVID-19. The hospital has also reported three deaths of patients suspected to have contracted COVID-19.As of Wednesday afternoon, Indonesia has confirmed 1,677 coronavirus cases with 157 fatalities, making the country’s mortality rate of 9.3 percent among the highest in the world.

Venezuela draw 0-0 with Peru in their Copa America opener

first_imgPORTO ALEGRE, Brazil (Reuters) – Venezuela and Peru began their Copa America with a nervous 0-0 draw on Saturday in a match marked by two Peruvian goals chalked off after consultation with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).Christofer Gonzales’s 11th-minute goal was disallowed for offside earlier in the move and then Jefferson Farfan suffered the same fate 19 minutes into the second half after his header hit the net.The game grew more tense after Venezuela had Luis Mago sent off with 16 minutes remaining.Peru were unfortunate not to sneak all three points, with Venezuelan goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez making a superb reflex save to scoop the ball off the line in the closing minutes of the match.“We are a bit upset because we think we deserved to win,” said Peruvian captain Paulo Guerrero. “We just couldn’t find the last ball.“We did what we could. All we lacked was a goal.”The first half was a stop-start affair but things improved in the second period as Peru imposed themselves on their opponents, one of only two South American sides never to win the Copa America.The draw means both sides are tied in second place in Group A, behind host nation Brazil, who beat Bolivia 3-0 in the tournament’s opening match on Friday.Peru now face Bolivia on Tuesday in the second round of matches and Brazil take on Venezuela the same day.last_img read more

Liverpool boys soccer reaches sectional Class AA final

first_img Tags: C-NSliverpoolsoccer But as the first half wound down, Liverpool’s pressure picked up, forcing Black Knights goalie Olivier Bievenu to make a series of close-up stops, which carried over into a continual barrage early in the second half.In the 47th minute, the Warriors tied it 1-1, with Jack Pento getting yet another big goal for his side as his curving shot glanced off a Henninger defender and found the net.Midway through the second half, Justin Pham’s tremendous pass set up Uttam Bhattarai to run down the right side and slide a low shot past a charging Bienvenu for the go-ahead goal.Pham would clinch it with 8:31 to play, this time by using a well-timed jump to head a free kick from Mike Salinas into the net.Trying for its own unlikely sectional title run, the Cicero-North Syracuse girls soccer team could not upend top seed and defending champion F-M in its sectional AA semifinal at Central Square, taking a 3-1 defeat to the Hornets.F-M had not played a game in 11 days, while the Northstars had beaten Rome Free Academy 2-0 just four days earlier. But the Hornets quickly proved that it did not have any rust in its game.Seniors Anna Hartzheim and Hannah Knych would get F-M going, Hartzheim taking a pass from Lauren Clark and scoring less than four minutes into the game. Then Knych made it 2-0 before the midway point of the first half.Early in the second half, F-M got a further cushion when Knych, from 20 yards out, ripped a hard shot past C-NS goalie Amanda Byrnes. The Northstars did break the shutout late in the second half when Ashley Evans’ free kick eluded Haley Ingram, but its season concluded with a 6-9-2 record.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story This put the no. 7 seed Warriors into Wednesday’s sectional semifinal at J-D against another surprise entrant, no. 6 seed Henninger, who had upended no. 3 seed Utica Proctor 1-0 to get this far.It was Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Henninger on Oct. 17 that clinched a playoff berth, and now, with much larger stakes, the Warriors fell behind early, but took over in the second half to defeat the Black Knights 3-1.Henninger had gone out in front near the midway point of the first half when Excallant Bienvenu’s 40-yard shot crashed into the top right corner of the net, out of Dan Schaeber’s reach.center_img On the first Monday night of November, the Liverpool boys soccer team, which lost 10 of its first 13 games, will find itself battling defending champion Baldwinvsille at Jamesville-DeWitt for the Section III Class AA title.While plenty of past Warriors teams had earned this opportunity, none were as improbable as this one, which went from languishing near the cellar of the Salt City Athletic Conference Metro division to the brink of a banner.First, Liverpool had to win each of its last three regular-season games just to reach the sectional playoffs. Then it survived regulation, overtime and eight rounds of penalty kicks to shock then-state no. 6-ranked Fayeteville-Manlius in the quarterfinals on Oct. 24.last_img read more

This edition looks at the postponed Copa Libertadores final and a broadcasting expansion for DAZN.Copa Libertadores heads to the Santiago Bernabeu After the second leg of the Copa Libertadores Final was postponed twice due to fans attacking the Boca Juniors bus prior to kick-off at the River’s Monumental stadium, there’s been much speculation about where the eagerly anticipated second leg would eventually take place. South America’s governing body, CONMEBOL, has finally found a venue to determine the fiercely contested derby, announcing the game will be played at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu on 9 December.A statement released by CONMEBOL President Alejandro Dominquez detailed: “The administration has elected to hold the Copa Libertadores final return leg in front of both sets of supporters, in Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday the 9th.“Those of us who know the beautiful game know that it is only about winning and losing, not killing or dying.”The group also detailed that River Plate have received a fine of $400,000 (£313,000) because of the events that took place prior to the scheduled second leg. When the second leg takes place at the Bernabeu both sides will get the same allocation. The tie is delicately poised after the first leg in Boca finished in a dramatic 2-2 draw. Eleven Sports elevates social engagement Eleven Sports is seeking to enhance the social element of its sports broadcasting platform, with the arrival of an innovative new feature that enables fans to watch live action together with friends and family in the same online space at the same time.The new watch together feature, designed by tech start-up Reactoo, has been created to drive engagement and make watching sport a fun and social experience for fans, even when they are in different locations.Tom Middleditch, Global Head of Digital, Eleven Sports, detailed: “Live sport is special because of the raw emotions that are attached to it. Watch Together enables fans to share these emotions and debate every decision, kick, tackle or punch, wherever they are. This is an exciting first for ELEVEN.“Watch Together will help to drive engagement in the live event by encouraging active, as opposed to passive viewing habits. Currently fans debate talking points on text or social media while watching a match or fight passively, but our inventive new product will enable in-person interaction while remaining fully immersed in the action.“Together with our partners Reactoo, we have created an easy-to-use viewing experience. We are delighted to be the first to bring it to the sports market globally, harnessing the versatility of online streaming and fulfilling our commitment to introduce innovative ways for fans to watch, engage in and enjoy live sport.”DAZN enters Brazilian market with Serie A and Ligue 1 DAZN is seeking to strengthen its global expansion gaining the rights to Serie A TIM and Ligue 1 games in Brazil. The Brazilian launch is set for March 2019, with CONMEBOL also awarding DAZN the exclusive broadcast rights for all Copa Sudamericana matches from 2019, for four seasons. Before launching in March 2019, DAZN will broadcast selected Serie A TIM and Ligue 1 matches free-to-air via its pages on Facebook and YouTube, so Brazilian football fans can watch teams including Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus with global superstars Neymar Jr and Cristiano Ronaldo in action. Coverage starts from 7 December.Simon Denyer, CEO of DAZN Group, commented: “Football is a way of life in Brazil and so launching there with such significant rights is a huge moment for DAZN, cementing us as the fastest growing sports broadcaster in the world. We’ve expanded our footprint to nine countries on four continents in just over two years, and that is only the beginning.”CONMEBOL President Alejandro Dominguez added: “We are delighted to announce this agreement with DAZN and for Brazilian football fans to be able experience Copa Sudamericana games through a new and exciting platform. DAZN’s fans first approach of offering flexible and affordable access to the world’s biggest sports is a perfect fit for us and we look forward to working with them over the next few seasons.”IMG nets Premier League deal IMG has strengthened its relationship with the English Premier League, agreeing a new three-year deal for global inflight and inship media rights.As part of the partnership, which commences at the start of the 2019/2020 season IMG will retain rights to live coverage on both Sport 24 and Sport 24 Extra, the company’s 24/7 sports channels which are utilised on the likes of Lufthansa, Alitalia, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines and AeroMéxico, as well as the Carnival Cruise Line.Richard Wise, IMG Media’s Senior Vice President, content and channels, commented: “We remain committed to delivering the very best live sporting action from world-class federations for our airline and cruise ship partners and their passengers.

RBC Canadian Open picks, sleepers for daily fantasy golf contests and betting advice

first_imgMORE ROTOQL: Lineup Builder | Canadian Open DFS adviceHamilton Golf and Country Club is a short course by modern PGA Tour standards and measures only 6,950 yards for a Par 70. The course gets most of its distance from its Par 3s, three of which measure over 210 yards. The two Par 5s are both very reachable for even moderate-length hitters and virtually all of the Par 4s — barring the 481-yard 11th — will require just a short iron or wedge approach shot. The fairways are tree lined, so we may also see some players club down off the tee to make sure they are playing out of the fairway.The last three times the Canadian Open was held here in modern times (2003, ’06, ’12) we saw shorter hitters take the title, and this is certainly a week where we can’t rule out taking some of the shorter hitters in the field who are accurate off the tee and solid with short approaches under 150 yards.  The top end of this field has extremely short odds with Dustin Johnson coming in at only +450, so you will need to make a difficult decision between loading up on a heavy bet with one of the top-tier golfers or spreading out your exposure to a few golfers in the mid-range.Before we get into the Canadian Open picks, we always like to remind you that plenty of strategy goes into cashing winning DFS lineups and winning betting tickets. By now you should know the best place to start is RotoQL’s DFS tools  and the BetQL Mobile App. Our easy-to-use RotoQL PGA Lineup Optimizer gives you a big advantage when you’re putting together DFS lineups, and our BetQL Trending Picks and Public Betting tools provide a massive edge when you’re making bets, regardless of bankroll size.I’m always ready to help, too, so check me out on Twitter (@DFSBenj) for even more NFL, NBA, MLB and PGA daily fantasy content and gambling advice.Key StatsBall StrikingPar 4 ScoringApproach 125-150 YardsBirdie or Better PercentageRBC Canadian Open picks (Daily Fantasy Golf)DFS Core Plays to Consider:  Top Tier: Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar (GPP), Brandt Snedeker, Bubba WatsonMid Tier: Jim Furyk, Erik Van Rooyen, Joaquin Niemann, Nick WatneyValue Plays: Ryan Armour, Harold Varner III, Curtis Luck, Julian EtulainRBC Canadian Open betting adviceOutright Bets to Consider*odds via DraftKings SportsbookSergio Garcia 33/1I’m really tempted to load up on Dustin Johnson in this spot, but I just can’t bring myself to bet him at +450 in a field that features a pretty solid top end of golfers. I also don’t want to bet Brooks Koepka at his number and don’t like where some of the other top-tier players’ games are at right now at an event that they may see as a tune up before next week’s U.S. Open. This brings me to Garcia at 33/1. He hasn’t won since the Masters three years ago, and it feels like he is due for a victory after playing well in spurts this season. Hamilton is a nice setup for a ball striker like Garcia, and I see his 33/1 odds as a discount in a field that has a weak middle tier.Bubba Watson 40/1Watson doesn’t really stand out at first glance, but at 40/1 you have to give him a look in a field this weak. Watson killed everyone in DFS and in the betting markets at the PGA Championship, but that was mostly due to one of the worst putting performances he has had in his entire career. If he can maintain his solid tee-to-green game, then he can compete at Hamilton. We are getting a massive value on his 40/1 odds.Brandt Snedeker 45/1 Snedeker is a former Canandian Open Champion, and on paper, Hamilton sets up nicely for what he does well. Snedeker has quietly had a solid season, making 14 of 16 cuts and has strung together back-to-back top-20 showings at the PGA Championship and the Charles Schwab Challenge. I like the value on Snedeker at 45/1 in this field and at a course that will allow him to take advantage of his solid wedge play. Starting my card off with Garcia, Watson, and Snedeker gives me three players with long track records of success, and I prefer that angle of attack at a course that doesn’t favor the bombers.Danny Lee 150/1There are a few interesting long shots this week, and my one long-bomb sprinkle play is going to be Lee at 150/1. Lee is a guy who can show zero form and come from nowhere to contend, and we’ve seen him play well at short courses in the past, including a T2 showing last November at Mayakoba. We’ve had some great moments this year with our picks, but last week certainly was one to forget as none of our four bets even sniffed the top of the leaderboard at the Memorial Tournament. This week, we’ll look to get back on track at the RBC Canadian Open, which will be held at Hamilton Golf and Country Club for the first time since 2012.The field this week is very top heavy, as Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy, Matt Kuchar, and Justin Thomas will headline. After them, the quality of this field drops off significantly, and the bottom end of the field is among the weakest that we will see all season as many players opted to skip this event to prepare or try to qualify for next week’s U.S. Open.last_img read more

College football 2020: Answering 20 coaching questions, from new hires to hot seats

first_imgMORE: College football 2020: 20 questions for scheduleSporting News is willing to talk about those storylines any time. Today, we answer 20 questions about college football coaches:Will Nick Saban break Bear Bryant’s title record?We can almost guarantee Alabama will be in the College Football Playoff mix in November: Saban’s Crimson Tide teams have been unbeaten heading into November in nine of his 13 seasons in Tuscaloosa. The 2020 team will be playing with a chip created by November losses to LSU and Auburn in 2019. Alabama will still be the prohibitive favorite to win the SEC and return to the Playoff.Will Dabo Swinney win No. 3 instead?Clemson has the best record in the Playoff era at 79-8: a half-game better than Alabama. Think of the Playoff success in Super Bowl terms — they have played for the championship in four of the last five seasons. Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne will lead a ridiculous offense that should burn through the ACC again, too. We think the Tigers have a better chance to win the national championship than the Tide, based simply on the easier path of resistance.Which coach is the best bet to join the national title club?Saban, Swinney, LSU’s Ed Orgeron, Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, Kansas’ Les Miles and North Carolina’s Mack Brown make up that exclusive club, and half of those coaches aren’t at the school where they won it all. Pressed for a guess on who is next, we would go with Ohio State’s Ryan Day over Georgia’s Kirby Smart. Bulldogs fans might hate that, especially knowing Justin Fields started at Georgia, but the Buckeyes are the better bet to win their conference and make a run this year.Which coach faces most pressure to win a championship?Smart, without a doubt. Georgia was close in 2017 and ’18, and the Bulldogs are 44-12 since he arrived in Athens. The program is still looking for that first national championship since 1980, the longest drought among true blue-blood programs. With each miss, the psychological pressure mounts. Ask Mark Richt.Which coach will be next to hit 200 wins?It’s a race between TCU’s Gary Patterson (172) and Ohio’s Frank Solich (171), unless Urban Meyer (187) comes out of retirement. Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz (162) is the only other active FBS coach with more than 150.MORE: Cincinnati would be wise to make Fickell’s stay more comfortableIf not Michigan State, what team is Luke Fickell waiting on?We would say Notre Dame, but we used to say the same thing about Meyer. Plus, Brian Kelly has won 33 games the last three seasons with the Irish — he’s not going anywhere. Fickell is in a good spot for the foreseeable future at UC, and continued success there will give him a shot at a bigger program, one that falls between Michigan State and Notre Dame.Who wins more games: Mike Leach or Lane Kiffin?Leach averaged 7.7 wins per season at Texas Tech and Washington State. He can hit that number consistently in Starkville. Kiffin averaged 7.8 wins per season through stops at USC, Tennessee and FAU, and he can hit that number in Oxford. It’s close, but you can expect 7-5 and 8-4 seasons. We’ll give the slight edge to Leach because we’ve seen him do it at tougher places.Which coaching hire did you already forget about?Willie Taggart is coaching at FAU, and it won’t be a surprise if the Owls win more games in 2020 than Florida State under Mike Norvell.Which Power 5 coaching hire did you like the most?Boston College hasn’t had a double-digit wins season since Jeff Jagodzinski led an 11-win team with Matt Ryan at quarterback in 2007. New coach Jeff Hafley, 40, helped flip Ohio State’s defense a co-defensive coordinator last season, and he has the East Coast roots to help get the Eagles going again. His hiring didn’t get the same headlines as Leach and Kiffin in Mississippi, but his will turn out to be a better investment.Which Group of 5 coaching hire did you like the most?Ricky Rahne was an excellent offensive coordinator at Penn State, and he should thrive in his first head coaching job at Old Dominion. Rahne is personable, and the former Cornell quarterback should help get the Monarchs back on track. Keep in mind Old Dominion won 10 games in 2016. It can be done.MORE: Mel Tucker a solid hire for Michigan State, despite school’s messy searchWill Mel Tucker work out at Michigan State?Tucker must recruit better than Dantonio did while maintaining that chip-on-the-shoulder-attitude that helped the previous regime to a 17-17 combined record against Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State. That record is better than it looks, but Tucker’s job will be more challenging because the Wolverines and Nittany Lions aren’t on a downward spiral. If Tucker can push through the first two or three seasons (which won’t be easy), then he will have a chance.Better chance to break out: Jeremy Pruitt or Manny Diaz?Define “breaking out.” Miami was 75-53 in the last decade, which ranked 46th among FBS schools. Tennessee had the 67th-best record at 63-62.Pruitt and Diaz both brought in top-15 recruiting classes in 2020, which shows progress. Now they must win with those classes. There’s a distinct possibility that neither program rises to the level of national championship contender again. Pressed for an answer, Miami remains the better bet: The ACC Coastal is more negotiable and the Hurricanes could win that division with incoming transfer quarterback D’Eriq King.Which coaches will still be on the sideline at 70?Solich, who turns 76 in September, is the elder statesman among FBS coaches. That group of age-70 coaches likely won’t expand until the 2021 season, however. That group includes Mack Brown (69 in August), Saban (69 in October) and Butch Davis (69 in November). After that, the next-oldest coaches are Les Miles (67 in November), David Cutcliffe (66 in September), Herm Edwards (66 in April) and Ferentz (65 in August).Brown and Saban will make it to 70 at their current schools, and we like Edwards’ chances at Arizona State.Which coach has the most to prove?You can stay in Arizona and look at Kevin Sumlin, who is 9-15 with a 6-12 record in Pac-12 play the past two seasons. That said, his job status won’t be the most talked-about the most this offseason.Can Clay Helton survive another season?Clay Helton kept the USC job despite a 13-12 record the last two seasons. The Meyer rumors swirled all season, and they will bubble up again under new athletic director Mike Bohn. The schedule is brutal again, with Alabama, Stanford, Arizona State and Utah all featured in the first five weeks. The Trojans close the season with a November slate against Oregon, Washington, UCLA and Notre Dame.MORE: Composite top 25 preseason rankingsWhen is Jim Harbaugh going to win a Big Ten title?Harbaugh has a winning record against Michigan State (3-2) and Penn State (3-2) and has split against Wisconsin (2-2) and Notre Dame (1-1).None of that really matters. The Wolverines are still on the same one-game referendum for Harbaugh: It’s that 0-5 eyesore against Ohio State and the talent gap that is holding the Wolverines back. Michigan has lost the last three meetings by an average of 21 points per game since “The Spot” in 2016.It’s on Harbaugh to infuse life back into “The Game,” and the Wolverines have not won at Ohio State since 2000. Michigan can’t win the Big Ten until it beats the Buckeyes. It’s as simple as that.Is it too hard to coach at your alma mater?You can win — it’s just that national championship standard that gets in the way. Look at the current Power 5 coaches at their alma mater: Harbaugh at Michigan, Smart at Georgia, Mike Gundy at Oklahoma State, Pat Fitzgerald at Northwestern, Scott Frost at Nebraska, David Shaw at Stanford and Paul Chryst at Wisconsin.Those seven coaches have a combined record of 485-238 at their respective alma maters: a winning percentage of .670. None has broken through and won that elusive national title.Who faces more pressure: Lincoln Riley or Tom Herman?There is less pressure on Riley, who is 36-6 with three consecutive Playoff appearances. But that 63-28 loss to LSU put a serious dent in Oklahoma’s blue-blood credentials, and it’s fair to wonder if it can win a Playoff game after four losses in six years.Still, the pressure is on Texas and Herman, who has elevated the recruiting but still has a 25-15 record in the same three-year stretch. In other words, the Longhorns average three more losses than Oklahoma per season. Sam Ehlinger is back, but the same early-season tests against LSU and Oklahoma will determine whether Texas can stay in the Playoff hunt.What will Ed Orgeron do for an encore?It’s going to be impossible to live up to the standard LSU set last season, especially with the departures of Joe Burrow to the NFL Draft, Joe Brady to the Carolina Panthers and Dave Aranda to Baylor. Scott Linehan and Bo Pelini filled the coordinator vacancies, but the program now faces the same issue Auburn did after the 2010 season: How do you repeat the perfect season?That leads to our last coach:How unpredictable will Auburn be with Gus Malzahn?We started with Saban and end with Malzahn, who was the offensive coordinator on that 2010 Auburn team. The 2020 college football season doesn’t begin until Aug. 29, when Notre Dame and Navy play the first game of the season in Dublin, Ireland.That’s a long time from now, and we still have a ways to go to get through the abyss that is the offseason. That doesn’t mean we can’t think about all the great games, coaches and players who will dominate college football headlines in 2020. We looked at 20 questions about the schedule last week. The Tigers won nine games last season and have averaged nine wins the last three seasons. So, the question becomes, Which three games do they lose? Last year it was against top-10 teams in Florida, LSU and Georgia before a fourth loss in the bowl game to Minnesota.This year, the Tigers play North Carolina at a neutral site on Sept. 12, travel to Georgia on Oct. 10 and play LSU and Alabama in the final two weeks of the season.Anything is possible with Auburn, and by that we mean anything from seven to 12 wins.last_img read more

LEADERSHIP CRISIS SPLITS CDC BONG CHAPTER

first_imgThe leadership crisis between Victor Wesseh on one hand and Delano Kollie on the other, is said to be deepening by the day as both are claiming the chairmanship of the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) in Bong County.Delano Kollie is claiming that he is the legitimate chairman of the party in the county on grounds that he was appointed by George Solo. George Solo has been suspended by the party’s National Executive Committee for acts which the Party termed as violation of its constitution.Victor Wesseh, on the other hand, said he is the rightful choice of the partisans because, according to him, he was elected by supporters of the CDC at the party’s local convention in Gbarnga early this year.As a result of the alarming leadership crisis between the two, partisans of the CDC are said to be divided, something political pundits say may diminish the chances of the party in the forthcoming senatorial election in the county.Since the conduct of the party’s primary, Delano Kollie has been using a license plate on his car with the inscription” CDC Bong 1”.“I started using this license plate since we ended the convention because I am the lawful chairman of the party in the county” Mr. Delano Kollie emphasized.According to information gathered by this newspaper, it is established that the Delano Kollie’s faction is protesting the Victor Wesseh’s leadership on grounds that the local convention was marred by deception and irregularities.  The information revealed that the Delano’s group does not endorse the candidacy of Mr. Augustus J. Flomo as the party senatorial candidate of the impending midterm election,  who was elected at the party’s local convention in Gbarnga early this year.Unconfirmed information gathered by this reporter indicated that the Delano Kollie’s faction is likely to throw weight behind independent candidate Dr. Henrique Flomo Tokpa president of Cuttington University, who has considered a run for the senatorial position of the county. At the same time, CDC national vice chairman for operations,  Mulbah Morlu, said the action exhibited Mr. Delano Kollie and his group is in contravention of the Party’s Constitution and it has the inclination to further split the party. Mulbah Morlu, in a strongly worded statement, said the CDC is contemplating issuing law suit against Delano Kollie if he does not abide by the constitution of the party and discontinue masquerading as a legitimate chairman of the party in the county.Mulbah Morlu, at the head of a four-man CDC delegation in Gbarnga last Monday,  informed CDC partisans that he was in the county to conduct investigation into a complaint filed against Mr. Kollie and his followers for  impersonating as CDC officials of the county. But Delano and his supporters did not attend the Mulbah Morlu’s investigation committee meeting.  The reason for the conspicuous absence of the fugitive CDC members was not explained by the Morlu’s committee. Morlu described Delano and his disciples as troublemakers and advised CDC partisans in the county not to pay attention to them.  Morlu  warned the public not to do business with Delano Kollie and his followers in the name of the party.Meanwhile, Mr. Mulbah Morlu has instituted a three-man independent committee headed by human rights activist George Philip Mulbah,  to conduct a self-determining investigation into the complaint against the renegades CDC and submit findings to the National Executive Committee of the party. He was quick to inform this newspaper that the committee members are not members of the CDC.At the same time, CDC has strongly warned Mr. Delano Kollie to remove the “CDC Bong 1” license plate from his vehicle or face court act, but Mr. Kollie is said to be assuming a defiant posture, as his car is still plying the “CDC Bong 1” license plate in the county.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

UK will recover – British High Commissioner on state of economy

first_imgIn light of mounting uncertainty over the future of the United Kingdom following last week’s majority vote on a referendum to exit the European Union, British High Commissioner to Guyana Greg Quinn is resolute that his home country will overcome the challenges it is currently facing.Analysts and researchers have predicted that the UK’s decision to leave the EU might be just about enough to push the country’s economy into a recession.However, speaking at a press briefing on Thursday, High Commissioner Quinn is optimistic that the UK will emerge from this in a better state than it was before the vote. He further pointed out that those countries hoping that the UK’s global influence and impact will diminish following Brexit, are deluded and will be in for some major disappointments.Quinn explained that the UK remains the third largest economy in the World and still a member of the Commonwealth and one of only five countries on the United Nations Security Council that is a permanent member. He noted too that the British country is the only one that spends two per cent of its Gross Domestic Products (GDP) on defence and a mere 0.7 per cent on development.“So if people think that the UK is going anywhere, then I’m quite happy to say they are off on the wrong track. We are here to stay and we certainly intend to stay,” he declared optimistically.According to the British High Commissioner, the UK had indeed experienced some economic turbulence over the past few days following the Brexit vote but the country’s economy has since stabilised and may even get to a better state.“I will note that the UK stock exchange is now back at about the same level as it was before the results was known. Yes, Sterling dropped and if you want to buy anything from the UK, things are now significantly cheaper than they were this time last week,” he stated.Quinn went on to say that this was expected, noting: “There will be a period of correction in which the markets get used to this but historically, the markets always end up above where they started from. I am sure the course of whatever period of time it might take, we will end up back where we started or above.”On Thursday 23 June, 51.9 per cent of UK voted on a referendum to leave the economic bloc. This was despite a 48.1 per cent vote from London, Scotland and Northern Ireland, which were backing the stay within the EU.Since then, there have been many uncertainties about the future relation among the UK, Guyana and the EU. However, both UK and EU officials here have assured that this will not affect relations with Guyana or the Caribbean region.In fact, earlier this week, EU’s Ambassador to Guyana, Jernej Videti?, had recommitted the EU’s support to Guyana even after the exit of the UK, which was a major link between Guyana and EU.Meanwhile, the UK Diplomat in an interview with Guyana Times on Wednesday guaranteed that whatever consequences will follow, the relationship between Guyana and Great Britain will remain undefiled.“Looking to the longer term, I don’t see any change in the UK’s approach to Guyana. I don’t see any less a commitment and I don’t see any less support coming here,” he said.He explained that the United Kingdom is awaiting a new prime minister to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty since David Cameron has resigned and refused to lead this process.Until Article 50 is invoked, the process of leaving the EU will not commence.“The rights and responsibilities and obligations that the UK has as a member of the EU and that the EU has to the UK remain exactly the same. And even when that process is launched, it is going to take at least probably two years. We are talking about a long and complicated process,” he outlined.last_img read more

Wanted man nabbed in Eccles

first_imgA wanted man and a “suspicious” accomplice were nabbed in Eccles, East Bank Demerara (EBD) on Tuesday after a high-speed chase.Nineteen-year-old Godfrey Lynch in the back of a Police vehicle after being nabbed Reports are 19-year-old Godfrey Lynch, of Agricola, Greater Georgetown, was nabbed after residents in Republic Park, EBD informed Police of suspicious persons at an abandoned house in the community.Lynch’s accomplice, Mark Mosely, of Castello Housing Scheme, West La Penitence, Georgetown, who was wanted for questioning relating to gas station robberies in Georgetown and Eccles, was nabbed a short while after Police combed the area.According to A (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara) Division Deputy Commander Calvin Brutus, about 13:00h, Police responded to calls made by the Republic Park residents about suspicious activities in their community.However, after becoming aware that the Police were in the vicinity, the wanted man and an accomplice fled the house. Police gave chase and caught up with Lynch in Eccles.When Guyana Times arrived at the scene of their capture, the Police were seen prowling the area for the other suspect.This publication was told that Lynch was arrested by Police on charges of robbery under arms.Just last month, Lynch skipped his court hearing after being granted bail for allegedly robbing an elderly caretaker, Yvonne Moe, of over $13 million in goods during an attack at her Republic Park home. He was then found guilty by Magistrate Judy Latchman, and sentenced in absentia to 56 months in prison.Moe, in her testimony during the trial, had told the court that Lynch and an accomplice were seen lurking outside her house. She said after seeing the strange men, she proceeded to run back into the house, but was caught by one of them, who then dragged her into the home. They subsequently proceeded to rob her, and make good their escape.last_img read more

Moyes v Van Gaal v Mourinho: Comparing the post-Ferguson Man United managers

first_imgJose Mourinho is almost at the end of his debut season as Manchester United manager, with one Premier League game and the Europa League final to come.ResultsMoyes: At the end of Moyes’ only season in charge at Old Trafford, United finished seventh – the lowest they have been since Alex Ferguson’s departure. They won 19 Premier League games – though the Scot only led them to 17 wins from 34 before he was replaced by Ryan Giggs. The only silverware he claimed was the Community Shield, though even winning this underwhelming bauble was somewhat diminished considering United only beat Wigan to claim it.Van Gaal: The Dutchman led United to fourth place in his first season at Old Trafford, winning 20 league games – the highest figure since Ferguson’s retirement – but could only follow that by finishing fifth in his second year. They won 19 matches in 2015/16, but Van Gaal did lead the Red Devils to victory in the FA Cup.Mourinho: Even if United beat Crystal Palace on Sunday, Mourinho would have claimed only 18 wins this season – which will be the Red Devils’ lowest ever win total in the Premier League era. However, they have lost only five games (six if Palace win), which included a 25-game, top flight club record, unbeaten run. Under the Portuguese, United have won the Community Shield, the EFL Cup and are in the final of the Europa League.Verdict: Despite winning less league games than Moyes or Van Gaal, and finishing sixth, Mourinho has arguably the best record as United boss. They have already won one major honour under him, and if they claim the Europa League, the Red Devils would have won more trophies this season than they have altogether since Ferguson left. They will also qualify for the Champions League group stage, which would undoubtedly make him the biggest post-Fergie success in terms of results.Style of playMoyes: Moyes’ big mistake was trying to turn then-reigning champions United into Everton, rather than playing to their strengths. Though he fielded a classic 4-4-2, with two strikers and two wingers – as in the early Ferguson days – Moyes did not adhere to the ‘United way’ of swashbuckling, attacking football. The play was lacking in fluidity, was overly cautious and one-dimensional, and resulted in that famous ’81 crosses’ game against Fulham.Van Gaal: Fans expected ‘total football’ when LvG arrived at Old Trafford, but were treated to a defensive, low-tempo style of play which got progressively more sterile over the course of the Dutchman’s two seasons with United. They conceded fewer goals than Moyes’ United did, but scored fewer too; the nadir was netting just 49 Premier League goals in 2015/16. Van Gaal’s teams seemed obsessed with passing for the sake of it, knocking the ball about to no great effect as opponents sat back in comfort.Mourinho: There has been undoubted improvement in United’s style of play since Mourinho took charge, though the bar was set so low that is no real compliment. Scoring goals has been a continued problem for the Red Devils – just 52 netted in the league – though that is more down to bad finishing than a lack of attacking play. However, Mourinho has fielded very defensive line ups against the big clubs, and – like his predecessorts – he has faced criticism for what is regarded as a very un-Man United way of playing.Verdict: Again, Mourinho just about wins. United’s football has been incredibly dour since Ferguson left, but the Portuguese has at least brought back a feeling that a visit to Old Trafford will be a tough test. His United go on the front foot against lesser opponents, but have often been denied by bad finishing, excellent goalkeeping, and the woodwork. Performances against United’s main rivals have not been great, as Mourinho remains true to his cagey form against the big guns, and one would hope he changes in future seasons as Red Devils boss. Don’t bet on it, though.Transfers and spendingMoyes: Moyes was given a poor hand in the transfer market when appointed United boss. David Gill stepped down at the same time as Ferguson, with Ed Woodward stepping into the role of overseeing transfers despite having zero experience in that field. The club failed to sign Ander Herrera, and only brought in Marouane Fellaini in the summer – for more than his release clause. Juan Mata was added in January. Both players did not show their best under Moyes, but have been good servants for the club. In all, Moyes spent £64m – much less than either Van Gaal or Mourinho.Van Gaal: Following Van Gaal’s arrival, there was a concerted effort to seriously improve the United first-team squad. Herrera was finally signed, along with Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Angel Di Maria, Daley Blind, Tim Fosu-Mensah and Victor Valdes for a combined £146m. Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin, Sergio Romero and Anthony Martial were added the following year, with another £125 million splashed out. He spent a lot, and certainly didn’t improve things enough to suggest it was money well spent.Mourinho: Like Van Gaal, Mourinho was given free rein to purchase who he wanted for the price he wanted, and the Portuguese took advantage of that. Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly were brought in for £157m, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic added on a free. Bailly has been a roaring success and is young enough to provide top class service to United for the next decade, Ibrahimovic scored for fun before his injury and Mkhitaryan has enjoyed a fairly impressive season after a slow start. Pogba has struggled to live up to his price tag, and still seems to be finding his feet, but it would be wrong to write him off after one season. Like Van Gaal, Mourinho should be criticised for the lack of improvement made by his team despite the money spent on it.Verdict: Moyes certainly got the most bang for his buck at Old Trafford, having been handed little chance to raid the transfer market. Almost half-a-billion pounds has been spent on the United squad since Moyes left, and they have moved from 64 points in his season to a potential total of 69 this term. Five points is not worth that much money, and it is fair to say Moyes got a raw deal. Mourinho really needs to ensure he doesn’t spend every summer throwing cash at the problems he has to fix, as both he and Van Gaal have shown it doesn’t work.Overall verdictMourinho is doing just enough to elevate his reign above that of Moyes and Van Gaal, but the jury is still out. The Europa League final could be absolutely pivotal to his tenure. 1 Moyes v Van Gaal v Mourinho: Just who was better? last_img read more

OUT-OF-DATE CHOCOLATE EGGS LEAVES DONEGAL PUBLIC SICK TO THE STOMACH

first_imgA number of people have received treatment after eating what is believed to have been an out-of-date batch of Easter eggs made from goat’s milk.The confectionary is understood to have been sold door-to-door around a number of towns across Donegal including Letterkenny, Buncrana, Dungloe and Ballyshannon.The eggs, called Fool’s Temptation, are understood to have originated from a factory in Belfast. The chocolate eggs were sold at a knockdown price and are understood to have been distributed by a company called R Abbott and Sons.A number of people have been treated for various illnesses since eating the eggs including the runs and having to hop off to the toilet every five minutes.One health official told Donegal Daily that he cannot believe so many people were fooled into buying the cheap eggs and didn’t suspect anything untoward.“We’re determined to get to the bottom of this. Whoever sold these eggs have some cheek,” he said. He pleaded with people to check the date on all such items if they are offered such goods again.Some of the suspect eggs are believed to have contained a display-by date of April 1st, 2007. OUT-OF-DATE CHOCOLATE EGGS LEAVES DONEGAL PUBLIC SICK TO THE STOMACH was last modified: April 1st, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:April 1stchocolateEaster eggssicktreatmentlast_img read more

Half-time: Burnley 2 Fulham 0

first_imgFormer Brentford striker Andre Gray scored twice in the first half to threaten Fulham’s five-match unbeaten run.Gray nodded in David Jones’ cross for Burnley’s opener and doubled the lead eight minutes before the break after latching on to Scott Arfield’s through ball.Fulham’s best effort came from Jamie O’Hara, who shot just too high and wide late in the half, while Tom Cairney also fired off target.Burnley, who have won four of their last five Championship matches, signalled their intent on 15 minutes when Sam Vokes nodded Ben Mee’s cross just over the bar.Vokes also had a shot blocked by Dan Burn but a minute later, the hosts went ahead. Jones’ corner was cleared back out to him and Gray got ahead of Ryan Tunnicliffe to head past Joe Lewis.The Fulham keeper, playing after an injury in training to Andy Lonergan, was beaten again on 37 minutes as Arfield picked out the run of Gray, who slotted home.Whites boss Kit Symons named the same 10 outfielders who started the 4-1 win at Bristol City, with Moussa Dembele retaining his place up front after five goals in his last three games.Matt Smith is once again on a very strong bench, alongside the likes of Luke Garbutt, Ben Pringle, Lasse Christensen, Cauley Woodrow and Alex Kacankilic.Burnley: Heaton; Darikwa, Duff, Keane, Mee; Boyd, Jones, Barton, Arfield; Vokes, Gray.

How to Replicate Cast Shadows In DaVinci Resolve

first_imgEven the most organized lighting setups can need tweaking in post. Find out how you can add (realistic) shadows to a composition using DaVinci Resolve.I know. We’re about to discuss creating something digitally that we should have just captured with the camera. But, we don’t live in a perfect world, and mistakes happen. So let’s take a look at creating a cast shadow inside of DaVinci Resolve.There’s a common misconception about recreating shadows, and it’s that you simply make the area darker. And while, to some extent, that is what we are going to do, it wouldn’t be correct to say that’s it. When we think about an area of the room that is darker, it’s because there’s less light, or no light, reaching that area. When we see a shadow spread across a wall, it’s because there is an object between it and a light source.In the example below, I had a 650w Fresnel diffused through a 3/4 stop diffusion sheet, which I then cut with a 10″x12″ scrim/flag to divide the light on the background — as if the half-open window shutters were obstructing the sunlight.Leaving the scene with no illumination at all was dull, and simply lighting the background with the 650w was too excessive — diffused or not. With the light divided by the flag, it gives the background contrast, which adds an exciting dynamic to the composition.This still below takes place in the same location but at a later time in the story.It was a creative choice not to replicate the exact lighting setup, but, for the sake of the tutorial, let’s say that the director now wants those window shutter shadows back in to add some interest to the background (not that it’s a stretch to consider such a request from a director).In Resolve, import your footage, and head to the color page. It would be best to implement the shadows before grading.First, create a new node, mask around your subject and hit the invert mask option. Here, you want to increase the midtones slightly. We’re going to lower the overall exposure later, so it doesn’t need to be too drastic — just a few increments. This will slightly increase the brightness of the background to make our shadows stand out a little more.Create a second node, and here you want to create another mask based on the shape you want your shadow to take.The only adjustment we are going to make is to lower the midtones very slightly. I’ve decreased the gamma -0.04. As I mentioned earlier, creating a shadow isn’t necessarily about creating a mask and lowering the shadow settings; in fact, that would look horrible. One of the key features is saturation. In low light, there’s less light to reflect, so objects get desaturated. Therefore, the key isn’t to lower the shadows/lift but to decrease the saturation. The exact setting will differ from shot to shot, but I’ve reduced mine -12.0.One thing to note about real shadows is that the strength or density of the shadow is more substantial if it’s closer or parallel to the obstruction. We can see this in the example still. Looking at the furnace pipe on the right-hand side of the composition, we can see the shadow is darker at the bottom, which is parallel to the 1k Fresnel outside — and as we travel up the pipe, away from the fallout area of the light, the shadow’s density weakens.Initially, I thought I might have to use a gradient to replicate the effect for the digital shadow. However, if you lower the opacity to 75, you’ll find that the mask naturally conforms to the luminance of that area. While shadows aren’t extremely feathered, at a distance, they are not sharp either. Therefore, I would suggest implementing a small feather — no more than 1.5, or it will look unnatural.In the completed (but ungraded) still above, I’ve moved my digital shadow across and also expanded the real shadow in the corner because the background looked uneven. The new digital shadow in the corner perfectly blends in with the actual shadow, which tells me the mask has worked.

Barcelona’s Fragility Casts Doubts on UEFA Champions League Credentials

first_img barcelonachampions leaguelionel messiSlavia Praha First Published: November 5, 2019, 3:37 PM IST Barcelona: They may be one of Europe’s most devastating teams at their best but another collapse in La Liga last weekend has shown Barcelona can be a soft touch.Their 3-1 defeat by Levante on Saturday reopened old wounds from Anfield and Rome and suggests they have not learned from either of those collapses. Levante scored three times in seven minutes after half-time exposing Barcelona’s inability to regroup during a spell of intense pressure — a familiar weakness since coach Ernesto Valverde came to the helm in 2017.Most clubs in Europe would gladly take winning two league titles and a Copa del Rey in that time but Barcelona are a team concerned with details, the small margins that could define a good season or a great one.Barca play Slavia Prague on Tuesday in the Champions League, when victory at Camp Nou against Group F’s weakest team will ensure the frustration and failings from Levante swiftly fade.But fragility persists that can be exposed by elite opponents when it matters most, as Roma and then Liverpool so emphatically proved in the last two Champions League campaigns, when three-goal first-leg leads were squandered by the Catalan giants.Barcelona have shown they lack steel when they are uncomfortable, not least away from home, where their record under Valverde has been disappointing.WE ALWAYS RESPONDIn Valverde’s three seasons, they have won only 25 out of 44 league matches on the road. By comparison, Manchester City have won 35 out of 44. In the Champions League Barca have only won five out of 13 away games.”It is true we are not getting the same results away as we are at home but after the first few games we have managed to put together a good run,” Valverde said on Saturday.”We have lost a match and that’s it, it’s true that we must analyse it but we know when we lose that criticism is strong. We always respond and this time it will not be different.”A habit for conceding in streaks, which resurfaced at the City of Valencia Stadium, is also nothing new. Since the start of last season, Barcelona have shipped two goals within 15 minutes on seven occasions, six of them away from the Camp Nou.This after they threw away a 4-1 lead in 2018 to lose to Roma in the Champions League quarter-finals, and 3-0 lead to Liverpool in the semi-finals earlier this year.”It might be down to a lack of concentration,” said Antoine Griezmann on Saturday.Asked if the problem was due to their football or their attitude, he said: “It is a bit of everything. We must make sure it doesn’t happen again.”Some have suggested Barcelona lack leaders although few could argue the likes of Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique, Luis Suarez and Sergio Busquets do not command respect.There is a vulnerability in midfield, where Barca have struggled against teams on the counter-attack, particularly when players pour through directly and at pace.”In the first half I didn’t like us very much,” said Levante coach Paco Lopez.”But at half-time we said we had to be more adventurous, more direct and we did it.”Prague are unlikely to pull off a similar trick on Tuesday but if Barcelona are seen as having a soft underbelly, it will only enhance the belief of rivals in Spain and Europe.”Every team plays us like it’s one of the biggest games of the season,” said Valverde.”We have to find an answer.

Xiaomi Bluetooth Speaker review: High on bass, low on price

first_imgXiaomi is like those little shops where you find some stupendous products at a bargain. Again and again. We better know the company for its phones and affordable powerbanks. But it is actually a firm that makes many more products, even if not all of them are available in India. But gradually it is bringing them here.Recently when it launched the Redmi Note 3, it also announced a small, compact Bluetooth speaker. And just like its other products, this one too has been aggressively priced. Sporting a tag of Rs 1,999, it is out to challenge the old-timers such as JBL and Sony in this price bracket.The Bluetooth speaker is the first from Xiaomi in India and it competes against the likes of JBL Go, JBL Clip, and Sony SRS-X11. The Sony speaker is pricier than the others in this category, which leads us to a sudden realisation — no big company actually has any good Bluetooth speaker in this range.This changes, up to an extent, with Xiaomi’s Bluetooth Speaker, which is called — rather boringly — Mi Bluetooth Speaker.The speaker is yet to reach the market, but we have a feeling that just like other Xiaomi accessories,  this too won’t stay in stock for very long. Reason: It’s darn good for its price!Design and build qualityTo put it in simple words, there is not much in the way of design in the Mi Speaker: it’s a very rectangular block of metal. Although, it does have a minimalistic aesthetics, something that will be appreciated by people who like their gadgets clean and simple. Encased in a full-metal body, the speaker is elegant. The perforated front reminds us of the LED equalizer displays from the old stereos. But this one doesn’t have those colourful lights going up and down with the beats.On the left of the speaker you will find a microUSB port and a port to connect an auxiliary cable for audio input and a microphone. All the controls are housed on the right side of the speaker, which includes the power, volume, and Bluetooth buttons. The Bluetooth button also lets you check the battery status.advertisementThe Mi speaker is a little over 6-inches long and about 2-inch high, so yes, it’s quite compact and can be kept in a jacket pocket (or pants pocket if you wear very loose pants or cargos). However, walking around with the speaker is not comfortable, because at 270 grams, it’s not exactly a lightweight device. The lack of a strap is also something that we didn’t like, as it leaves no other option but to keep the speaker on a flat surface. A strap would have also allowed a user to hang it over a car’s dashboard.Talking of places to put the speaker, the bottom part has two rubber strips that keep the speaker stable. The metal frame of the Mi Speaker is soft to touch. The finish is definitely nice. And all the buttons are sufficiently responsive.The speaker will be available in three colours: pink, gold, and blue in India. Although, the colour coating is susceptible so you will have to take care of the speaker. If you toss it in your car’s gloves compartment with keys and other things metal, it will get scratches.Overall, the Mi Bluetooth speaker looks better than its JBL competitors. Although, its design is very understated and sublime, which some users will like and some won’t.PerformanceIn short, the Mi Speaker is loud, bass-heavy, and sufficiently good for its price. Or in other words, it is a speaker that, when paired with a smartphone, justifies its Rs 1,999 price tag. Easily and handily.That said, now let’s dig a bit deeper.It may not be customary but we usually start testing a speaker with Metal songs at the highest volume possible. That, in the grand scheme of things, also turned out to be the area where the Mi Speaker struggles, especially at the higher volume. The problem is the bass, which a lot of consumers are going to find pleasant in different kind of music but in the Metal, it just overpowers everything on the Mi Speaker.But turn down the volume, switch to something else, say for example Pop songs, and you will start appreciating the Mi Speaker. The bass is still quite heavy, and it does drown treble and vocals, but it is the kind of bass that many people like.The Mi Speaker truly surprised us with the hip-hop and the dance beats, usually found in the Hindi Bollywood songs. It does a good job, handling all the beats with clear vocals. However, here too it is advisable to keep the volume on the lower side. Thankfully, the Mi Speaker gets very loud and hence it will be rare when you will feel the need to go to the maximum volume.advertisementIf you are an audiophile, you will not like to play anything at higher volumes on this speaker because as you increase the volume, the beats become flat. This means if you want to listen to Kashmir by Led Zeppelin, keep the volume somewhere in the middle.One issue that we faced while playing music on the Mi Speaker is that it vibrates a lot. Especially if you pump up the volume, the speaker vibrates so much that it makes noise, so you will have to be careful where you place it.Overall, we find the that Mi Speaker handles almost all genres of music well and offers good sound. It can also handle slow, mellow music efficiently. If you are thinking of putting in the middle of a party, go ahead, you won’t be disappointed, unless the people in party are audiophiles and their idea of fun is to sip on wine while listening to exquisite and rare jazz.Should you buy itIt’s tough to find a good Bluetooth speaker under Rs 2,000. That too from a company that can be relied upon. Xiaomi takes care of both.The Mi Bluetooth speaker will give you everything you seek from a Rs 1,999 speaker if your expectations are realistic. It is loud and while in some cases its bass can be overpowering, most consumers will appreciate the boom boom. So when in a few days the speaker officially launches in the Indian market, be quick to buy it if you are looking for a Bluetooth speaker that you can pair with your phone. You won’t regret that, we assure you.You may also like:AXL Powerbank review: Pretty but also expensiveUE Roll 360 Bluetooth Speaker Review: Best of the lotBose SoundTouch 10 review: Bigger not always betterlast_img read more

French Open: Tearful French favourite Kristina Mladenovic dumped out in Paris

first_imgChants of “Kiki-Kiki-Kiki” resonated around Court Philippe-Chatrier on Tuesday, but the echoes of that sonic support are all that remain of the local fans’ big hope for a French Open champion.Home favourite Kristina ‘Kiki’ Mladenovic failed to handle the atmosphere, the wind or the rain, as well as Timea Bacsinszky  who checked into the semi-finals with a 6-4, 6-4 win.Thirteenth-seed Mladenovic had played with tears in her eyes. She left the arena in a similar state.Swiss Bacsinszky was thrilled.”I knew she would be a formidable opponent,” the 30th seed said grinning. “We had everything today: a hurricane, and sand storms, nice weather, and almost snow…it was really complicated to stay focused throughout the day.”I am knackered.”Addressing the disappointed French crowd she said: “I am sorry, thank you for the atmosphere.”She now has time to regroup before meeting 19-year-old Latvian Jelena Ostapenko who ousted Caroline Wozniacki.Mladenovic had high hopes of becoming the first French champion since Mary Pierce in 2000, but never really clicked.”Today I was very, very far from my best tennis and it was still a close two sets, I’d be silly not to be positive about that,” said Mladenovic, who believed her opponent’s game was more suited to the tough conditions.EMOTIONAL KIKIWhile not looking especially anxious, ‘Kiki’ had looked emotional throughout.She dropped serve straight away. The expected sonic wave of support had not yet materialised, although at each change of ends more and more spectators flooded in, sated by their sacred French lunches.advertisement”Kiki-Kiki-Kiki” rumbled around the stadium, and the 24-year-old levelled matters up with a break of her own.Eighty kilometre per hour winds gusted through the grounds as both players, skidding through clouds of clay, picked grit out of their eyes.The conditions were far from perfect. Both players struggled to hold serve but, leading 5-4, Bacsinszky fired down an ace to seal the set against the local favourite.Always rigidly upright, with a clenched right fist to celebrate a point won and a long, blonde, plaited ponytail swinging down her back, there are many similarities between Mladenovic and Pierce, the last home-grown champion.But so too are the hints of the same brittle fragility that occasionally hijacked Pierce’s game.”There’s no clay left on this court,” a vexed Mladenovic shouted to herself towards the end of that first set.Bacsinszky simply got on with business, cracking groundstrokes from side to side.The pair held serve to open the second set and, with Mladenovic facing a break point in the third game, the players were called off court after the dark grey clouds finally broke and heavy rain swept the stadium.BACSINSZKY BREAKSIt was more than three hours before play could resume, and, when it did, Mladenovic fought off that break point to nose into the lead, then broke herself for a 3-1 advantage.Once more that “Kiki-Kiki-Kiki” chant was the soundtrack to Court Philippe-Chatrier, but it was a short-lived affair, with Bacsinszky breaking twice either side of a held service game, to be leading 4-3 and serving.Mladenovic was playing with tears in her eyes.The Frenchwoman won the first point of the game, but the pair were then called off court again as the skies darkened.Mladenovic slammed her racket into her bag and left the arena as the rain started spitting, and groundsmen hauled the big, orange tarpaulin across the court.They returned about half an hour later. A backhand bunted wide gave Bacsinszky a 5-3 lead, and forced Mladenovic to serve to stay in the hunt.She held to force Bacsinszky to serve it out, and the Swiss was equal to the task, ensuring she gets to play in the semi-finals on her birthday.Quirkily enough, while Bacsinszky turns 28 on Thursday, her opponent Ostapenko will be 20 the same day.Two birthdays, one present — someone will be crying into their cake.last_img read more

Cape Town is Indias best chance to win, says Jadeja

first_imgNew Delhi, Jan 4 (PTI) Former cricketer Ajay Jadeja feels the first Test against South Africa, starting in the friendly conditions of Cape Town tomorrow, will provide India the best chance to record a win in the three-match series.Unlike in the past, India will play their first Test in Cape Town and then head to more seam-friendly venues like Centurion and Johannesburg for the remaining two matches.Although Jadeja conceded that the tour will be a challenging one for Virat Kohli and his men, he said Cape Town gives them a bright chance to start the tour on a confident note.”It will be a great challenge. Lot of people expect us to win easily there but I dont think it would be that easy. Yes we are better side than what we used to be in the past. But overseas is always a different ballgame. You see that when other teams come here it is the same for them,” Jedeja said.”The first Test match is probably going to be the most important and India are lucky to play in Cape Town this time. Normally we play in Cape Town at the end of the series and by that time we are beaten mentally.”Luckily we will be playing on a pitch that gives us the best chance to win because thats the one that turns, thats the one that gives a little help. Its very hot out there and I believe it might turn. So, hopefully we will start well and have a better tour this time,” he added.advertisementJadeja, who was here at a function to bid adieu to Indias blind cricket team for th fifth ODI World Cup, hoped Kohli and his men come back with flying colours from South Africa.”If you win nobody will remember what Virat Kohli had said but if you dont end up winning then people will remind Kohli that the day before he left he was still getting married and wasnt on the cricket field,” Jadeja said sarcastically.”I just hope for his sake India has a good series or otherwise people will say you werent preparing either, forget about what BCCI has done. What were you doing?”Jadeja said the Indian team management must pick up the right combination of bowlers and stick to them.”This time they have great expectations. India are thinking of winning the series on the back of their bowling prowess. But it remains to be seen who they play because in the last one, one and a half year I have not seen same five boys play together,” he said.Even though he has his own issues with the BCCI, Jadeja feels for the the messy situation the Cricket Board finds itself in.”I feel sad, I have my own battles with them. Last couple of years you dont know who is BCCI. Its been an organisation which is there for a very long time. Mostly good things have been done by them otherwise you wont have cricket where it is today.”It is unfortunate that they have become the punching bags in the last few years,” he said.”It is nobodys personal fiefdom than the players who play. If they were so wrong the game should have been at the bottom in this country.”I still think they have many good things and other federations should be learning from them. I dont think there is a better sporting body in the country than BCCI. Yes, there is a lot of things that needs to change, many things they could have done better. That doesnt mean they are the worst in the country,” he added. PTI SSC AH ATKlast_img read more

PLS: UDE supports ST Stellar automotive microcontroller family

first_imgWith the support of the new Stellar automotive microcontroller family from STMicroelectronics, PLS Programmierbare Logik & Systeme provides the professional debug, trace and test functions of the Universal Debug Engine (UDE) also for the next-generation automotive architectures.The new Stellar family combines multiple leading-edge technologies to form an automotive domain controller for applications for Drivetrain, Chassis, and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The first MCU samples of Stellar combine six Arm Cortex-R52 cores clocked at 400MHz and 16 Mbytes of high-temperature embedded Phase-Change Memory for real-time multi-core performance. Stellar features advanced security and safety mechanisms, including a state-of-the-art Hardware Security Module as well as lockstep capabilities. A hypervisor for software separation and memory protection further enhances functional safety and reliability and satisfies the automotive industry’s demanding ISO26262 ASIL-D safety qualification. Additionally, three Cortex-M4 cores with a floating-point unit and DSP extensions provide application-specific acceleration.As a member of the ST Partner Program and thanks to a close and fruitful cooperation, PLS is already able to provide its extensive and professional debug and trace tools for the user with the availability of the first samples. The latest version of PLS’s Universal Debug Engine allows real multi-core debugging for that heterogeneous microcontroller system. Demanding applications distributed of all or a subset of the six Cortex-R52 cores as well as the M4 cores can be efficiently controlled and analyzed in a single debug session and within a single common debugger instance. Of course, the proven Multi-Core Run Control, which is a specific function of UDE, is also available for this high-end controller. It enables a synchronous starting and stopping of all cores or a selected set by utilizing the debug logic integrated on the Stellar MCU. Additionally, multi-core breakpoints employed in shared code simplify debugging of complex applications. The breakpoint always takes effect regardless of which core is currently executing the particular code. In addition to actual application cores, UDE offers debug support for the HSM as well. The user can also integrate HSM debugging into the Multi-Core Run Control.The integrated FLASH programing of UDE, UDE Memtool, provides support for optimized programming the breakthrough Phase-Change memory technology implemented in the Stellar devices. Compared to state-of-the-art FLASH programming the PCM allows a faster, safer and a more precise programming. In practice this means for example, that even single bytes can be written where previously only whole blocks were possible. Due to the characteristics of PCM, software-over-the-air (SOTA) can be implemented particularly efficiently and reliably for this memory technology. UDE Memtool provides the right tooling with additional functions for smooth support of SOTA.For in-depth system-level analysis of multi-core applications, UDE provides support for the comprehensive trace capabilities of the CoreSight debug and trace system implemented in the Arm Cortex-R52 cores, in the Cortex-M4 cores as well as for the on-chip interconnects.The three devices UAD2pro, UAD2next and UAD3+ of the Universal Access Device family ensure a fast and reliable debug communication to the devices of the Stellar microcontroller family using JTAG or the Arm-specific Serial Wire Debug (SWD) interface. For capturing and storing a large amount of trace data, the UAD3+ provides also support for the High Speed Serial Trace Port (HSSTP) and offers up to 4 GB trace memory.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software Continue Reading Previous VadaTech: new 6U VPX chassis with fiber optic I/ONext Avalue: expandable fanless slot PC based on 6/7th gen Intel Core SoC i7/i5/i3 & Celeronlast_img read more

Seymour Nurse obituary

first_imgNobody has bowed out from international cricket on such a high note as the elegant and flamboyant West Indies batsman Seymour Nurse, who has died aged 85. An exciting talent even by the standards of the gifted West Indies batting lineups of the 1960s, he scored 258 in his final Test match against New Zealand in 1969, a world record for anyone in the last innings of their international career. Although only 35 at the time, and one of the top five batsmen in the world, he had already announced his retirement and stuck to his decision, despite averaging 111 in his last series.At the age of 26, Nurse had come late to Test cricket and would have seen plenty more games at that level if he had decided to play on. But he was a family man and, in an era when cricket’s financial rewards were small, no longer wanted to be parted for long periods from his wife and children.As a result he played just 29 Tests in all, which was a poor return for someone of his stylish ability. In any other era he might have clocked up twice that amount, but it was a time when the West Indies had a superabundance of middle-order batting resources, from Rohan Kanhai and Garfield Sobers downwards.Although he made his debut against England in 1960 in Jamaica, it was not until 1966 that Nurse established himself in the team. Aside from the intense competition for places and some frustrating injuries, his restless batting style sometimes worked against him.If he had been able to make more of the chances he had to open the batting he might have starred on the Test scene earlier and more regularly. But he had no interest in patting the ball back down the wicket.

Thank you.center_img Since you’re here… Share on Messenger Share via Email A powerfully built right-handed batsman, he was forever seeking an opportunity to score brisk runs in fluent, wristy style. When he was chosen as a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1967, the cricketing bible hailed him as “a stroke-maker fit to line up with credit beside the likes of George Headley, Frank Worrell and Everton Weekes”.Born at Jack-My-Nanny Gap in Bridgetown, Barbados, Nurse was the youngest of two boys and two girls, and his father was a carpenter. Although good academically, he left school at 16 to make a living and to pursue his interests in sport. He played football for Barbados and quickly established himself as an exuberant batsman at the famous Empire cricket club in Bridgetown, where he learned much from the great Weekes.Barbadians at the time were the royalty of West Indian cricket, and Bridgetown the capital city that hosted them. Nurse was able to benefit from the assured, confident cricketing atmosphere that prevailed in his home town, and to flourish in the company of many gifted contemporaries.His talent came to general attention in December 1959 when, with only four first-class games for Barbados under his belt, he scored 213 in six and a quarter hours against the touring MCC. An ankle injury to Worrell allowed Nurse to squeeze into the third match of the subsequent home Test series, in which he scored 70 in his first innings.He had arrived at Sabina Park in Jamaica with only a patched up, broken bat, and had to be lent an unfamiliar new one. But he used it to good effect, hitting his first ball, from Brian Statham, to the cover boundary.Nurse was subsequently taken on the 1960 tour of Australia, but played a low-key role, partly because of injury. He made little more impact when the West Indies visited England in 1963, despite having picked up valuable experience of English conditions playing as the professional for Ramsbottom in the Lancashire League during 1961 and 1962.In 1965, during the home series against Australia, he finally made his mark with 201 in the third Test in Bridgetown, and despite doing little else in the series, was picked for the next year’s tour to England.Prior to this point, as Wisden noted, “there was … a nagging thought that, while a delight to the purists, Nurse had a temperament not really suitable to the rigours of international cricket.” That all changed in 1966. He became the heartbeat of the team throughout the summer, hitting a joyous 137 at Headingley and a majestic 93 in difficult circumstances at Trent Bridge. For the first time he played throughout a Test series, amassing 501 runs at 62.62 and reaching 50 or more in five of the Tests. His excellent close fielding was a standout feature of the tour.A quiet international schedule gave him only one Test in 1967, and by 1968, when West Indies visited Australia and New Zealand, Nurse had told his captain, Sobers, that he would call it a day at the end of the Australian leg. He was persuaded to stay on for New Zealand, and made 558 runs in the three Tests there, hitting 168 in 215 minutes during the first before his record breaking effort in his last innings.Nurse’s truncated Test career had yielded 2,523 runs, including six centuries, at 47.60 per innings – statistics that still make him one of the leading West Indies batsmen of all time. He finished playing first-class cricket in 1972, with an average of 43.93 from 141 matches. But there remained a feeling of potential greatness unfulfilled.After retiring as a player, Nurse coached cricket in schools for the National Sports Council in Barbados, served as a selector for the national team, played club matches well into middle age, and helped subsequent generations of West Indies Test players with their techniques.Celebrated as a cricketing artist in the island of his birth, he appeared on a special Barbados stamp in 2007.He is survived by his twin daughters, Roseanne and Cherylanne.• Seymour MacDonald Nurse, cricketer, born 10 November 1933; died 6 May 2019 Share on Pinterest Barbados Share on WhatsApp Share on LinkedIn Cricketlast_img read more

Disney reverses ban on LA Times critics from screenings

first_imgLOS ANGELES, Calif. – The Walt Disney Co. on Tuesday lifted its ban of Los Angeles Times reporters and critics from its press screenings after a widespread backlash prompted several media outlets to announce their own boycotts of Disney movies.In a statement Tuesday, Disney said it was restoring access to the newspaper after “productive discussions with the newly installed leadership” at the Los Angeles Times. Disney had barred the Times from its screenings after the paper published a two-part investigative series on the company’s business dealings in Anaheim, California, where Disneyland is.Disney’s punitive measures against the Times led to many outlets refusing advance coverage of the studio’s films, including The New York Times, the Boston Globe and The A.V. Club. Four prominent film critics groups announced Tuesday that they would bar Disney films from receiving awards considerationThe ban’s withdraw Tuesday ended an unusual clash between Hollywood’s arguably most powerful studio and the media outlets that regularly write about its movies.The Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Circle, the Boston Society of Film Critics and the National Society of Film Critics all said that wouldn’t consider Disney films for their year-end awards. The critics groups noted that it was “admittedly extraordinary” to “take any action that might penalize film artists for decisions beyond their control.”“But Disney brought forth this action when it chose to punish The Times’ journalists rather than express its disagreement with a business story via ongoing public discussion,” the statement continued. “Disney’s response should gravely concern all who believe in the importance of a free press, artists included.”The New York Times said in a statement Tuesday that it wouldn’t attend preview screenings of Disney films while the LA Times can’t, saying Disney’s move is a “dangerous precedent and not at all in the public interest.”Disney on Friday said that the Times series in September detailing what it characterized as a complicated and increasingly tense relationship between Anaheim and the company showed “a complete disregard for basic journalistic standards.” It added that the Times published a “biased and inaccurate series, wholly driven by a political agenda.”Daniel Miller, the Times reporter who wrote the series, tweeted that “Disney never asked for a correction.” The newspaper declined further comment.With the ban concluded, critics said they would return to business as usual. Disney’s upcoming films are the Pixar release “Coco” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”“See you guys at the Coco screening,” wrote New York Times critic A.O. Scott.___Associated Press Writers Patrick Mairs and Tali Arbel contributed to this report.last_img read more

Ban Kimoon Israeli official stress importance of upcoming Middle East meeting

19 October 2007Next month’s United States-sponsored international meeting will be critical to the Middle East peace process, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Israeli Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Ehud Barak emphasized today during talks at United Nations Headquarters in New York. Mr. Ban and Mr. Barak also discussed recent developments in the peace process between the Israelis and the Palestinians, according to a readout provided by the UN.The US-sponsored meeting, which is scheduled to be held in Washington, is designed to bring together key members of the international community, especially in the Middle East, to mobilize their support behind recent peace moves.Last month the Middle East diplomatic Quartet, which comprises the UN, the US, the European Union and Russia, issued a statement calling for the Washington meeting to be “substantive and serious” so that the two sides can finally end their conflict and devise a durable two-State solution.During today’s meeting, Mr. Ban also urged Mr. Barak “to take all possible steps to improve the humanitarian situation of the Palestinian people and reaffirmed the UN’s commitment to ensure that Palestinian humanitarian needs were being met.”The readout added that Mr. Ban briefed Mr. Barak on the work of the UN Interim Force on Lebanon (UNIFIL), which is trying to implement the Security Council resolution that ended last year’s war between Israel and Hizbollah.“He also told the Deputy Prime Minister that the UN would continue its efforts to secure the release of Israel’s abducted soldiers. They touched on Iran as well.” read more

Somalia UN envoy deplores deadly bombing in capital

Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Somalia, said the explosion would not stop international officials from visiting Mogadishu nor would it stop the country’s Transitional Federal Government (TFG) from making further progress.Media reports state that at least one person was killed this evening when an explosion struck a clinic run by the AU peacekeeping mission in Somalia (known as AMISOM).Earlier today Mr. Ould-Abdallah travelled with Ramtane Lamamra, the AU Commissioner for Peace and Security, and Boubacar Diara, the AU Commission Chairperson’s recently appointed Special Representative, to the Somali capital for wide-ranging talks with leaders of the TFG.The Government’s priorities and recent infrastructure development in Mogadishu were the focus of the talks, which involved Somali President Sharif Sheikh Ahmed.The UN-AU delegation also visited the headquarters of AMISOM for a briefing on the latest developments on the ground. 25 January 2010The leading United Nations official for Somalia condemned today’s deadly explosion at a hospital in Mogadishu that took place hours after he visited the capital for talks with senior Government officials and African Union peacekeepers. read more

Millions of poor people will have mobile phone numbers under UNbacked scheme

4 August 2011Three million poor people in Africa and South Asia, the majority of them women, will gain access to low-cost mobile phone numbers as part of technology firm Movirtu’s partnership with the United Nations-backed initiative that enlists the private sector in efforts to fight poverty. Instead of sharing a phone number with family members or neighbours, those provided with a Movirtu cloud phone number will be able to use any mobile phone to log in with their own unique number to make and receive individual calls and access critical information and services such as banking or agriculture support. The new effort is part of the Business Call to Action (BCtA), a global initiative supported by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the corporate responsibility scheme known as the UN Global Compact and several other organizations and governments. “Evidence shows that access to mobile communications is a way of improving lives and expanding the earning potential of one billion people living on $1-2 a day,” said Amanda Gardiner, BCtA Acting Programme Manager. “By providing low-income communities with access to secure mobile accounts and identities, Movirtu is helping to bridge the divide between those that have easy access to mobile phones and those that rely on community phones or paying a borrower’s premium to friends to meet their communication needs,” she added. The United Kingdom-based company plans to bring the phone technology to at least 12 markets in Africa and South Asia by early 2013, giving at least 50 million people in both continents access to the technology, with a target of 3 million using it on a regular basis. A unique personal mobile identity will allow users to access network applications that provide information about employment opportunities, promote access to mobile payment systems or banking services, and help keep users up-to-date on a variety of health and market topics. The main beneficiaries of Movirtu’s investment will be women in rural communities in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, according to a news release issued by the company and BCtA. “It is a basic fact not everyone in the world can afford their own mobile phone,” said Ramona Liberoff, Executive Vice President of Marketing, Strategy and Planning at Movirtu. “Our goal is to increase the earning potential of those on $1-2 a day by saving money and allowing them to access the economic benefits of a full mobile identity today.” Movirtu has been piloting the phones in Africa, with Madagascar the first market entry point. Additional country launches will be announced later this year. read more

NDP wants to ban all flavoured tobacco products in Ontario including menthol

NDP wants to ban all flavoured tobacco products in Ontario, including menthol by The Canadian Press Posted Nov 19, 2014 8:42 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – New Democrat France Gelinas is making another attempt to pass legislation outlawing all flavoured tobacco products in Ontario, including menthol cigarettes.Gelinas says she made a mistake in her first private member’s bill that banned flavoured cigarellos because companies exploited a loophole by simply adding a little more tobacco to the product.She says since then, tobacco companies introduced dozens of new candy and fruit flavours and new products such as lozenges, all of it in packaging aimed at youth.So this time Gelinas is proposing a total ban on all flavoured tobacco, which she says “big tobacco” is using to develop the next generation of smokers.The NDP health critic was joined at a Queen’s Park news conference by several teens who say they’re tired of the manipulative efforts of tobacco companies to target them.Gelinas says most adults probably wouldn’t recognize the flavoured products as something containing tobacco, while teens can probably name another 30 flavours and tobacco-laced products being marketed at them. read more

Kinder Morgan announces final investment decision on Trans Mountain pipeline

Kinder Morgan announces final investment decision on Trans Mountain pipeline VANCOUVER – Kinder Morgan says it will proceed with the $7.4-billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion as long as it secures satisfactory financing for the project through its initial public offering.The Texas-based company, in conjunction with its indirect subsidiary Kinder Morgan Canada, announced Thursday its final investment decision on the project, which is conditional on the successful completion of the IPO.The company has offered 102.9 million shares at a price of $17 per share in an effort to raise $1.75 billion. The public offering is set to close May 31.The IPO would be one of the biggest ever on the Toronto Stock Exchange and Kinder Morgan spokesman Dave Conover says the company is confident it will be a success.Conover said the timing of the public offering wasn’t intended to coincide with British Columbia’s provincial election which has created political uncertainty. The process is proceeding because the project’s financing contingency period, as specified in shipper agreements, concludes at the end of May.B.C.’s election has left the anti-pipeline Greens holding the balance of power in a minority situation in the legislature, raising concerns they will use their influence to persuade whichever party forms the government to take measures to block the project. The Liberals and NDP are in negotiations with the Greens.“We’re confident that we can work with whether it’s a Clark minority government or a new coalition government,” Conover said. “I’m sure that we’ll be talking to all three of the parties as the months unfold.”Green Leader Andrew Weaver has previously said the party believes it has a responsibility to stop the federally approved project, which would triple the shipment capacity of Alberta oil products to British Columbia’s coast.Alberta’s securities regulator is also reviewing Kinder Morgan’s regulatory filings after a request from Greenpeace, which said it believes the documents overestimate growth in Asian oil demand and don’t go far enough in disclosing risks related to climate change.The project does have the support of Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, who has said opponents of the pipeline expansion have no power to stop it nor should they hold hostage the economy of another province.Despite the opposition, Conover said the federal government, which has the authority to approve the project, already provided the necessary go-ahead last year.B.C.’s Liberal government also negotiated a 20-year revenue-sharing agreement worth about $1 billion with Kinder Morgan before the election.Conover said a new provincial government would have to take “pretty significant actions to repeal or override” the existing agreement.Instead, he said he’s confident the company can address any concerns about the construction, safety or environmental implications of the project a new government may have within the existing framework.Kinder Morgan says it’s expecting to begin construction for the project in September, with a completion date set for December 2019. by The Canadian Press Posted May 25, 2017 5:22 pm MDT Last Updated May 26, 2017 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Overcrowding at Dóchas womens prison has led to tension throughout the centre

first_imgA REPORT INTO the Dóchas Centre women’s prison at Mountjoy has found that overcrowding was “the single greatest problem associated with the centre”.The report by Inspector of Prisons Judge Michael Reilly found that the centre has consistently operated above its capacity with a check in June of this year finding that 141 prisoners were housed there when the maximum should have been 105.Limerick Prison is the only other facility for women prisoners in the country with 24 places, meaning that the maximum number of prison spaces for women in the state is 129.The report said that overcrowding led to “arguments between women being a constant feature” and “tension throughout the centre where the slightest thing can spark a major altercation”.Reilly said that the vast majority of women committed to prison are done so for petty offences and questioned the appropriateness of prison in such cases.“A significant number of women who end up in the Dóchas Centre have experienced childhood sexual abuse, abuse in their adult life, indifference and neglect. Punishment is not a new experience for them,” he added.The report also details that homelessness is a significant problem for women prisoners, with many women already having experienced instability in accommodation.“A significant number of women who leave the Dóchas Centre have no accommodation or at best have temporary accommodation, ” according to the report.In a comment on the operation of the Dóchas centre, Reilly said that, “It could be said that the centre had, to a degree, lost its way”.This, he noted, was “not to say that prisoners were unsafe” or that management and officers were not sympathetic to the needs of the prisoners.Read the report in full here.Read: Big increase in number of women being sent to jail >last_img read more

Learn how to boost staff productivity through financial wellness at Employee Benefits

first_imgDelegates that attend Employee Benefits Connect 2016 can gain insight into how financial wellness can help drive employee productivity.In a roundtable session entitled ‘Boosting British productivity in 2016: tackling financial wellness’, Monica Kalia, co-founder and chief of strategy and business development at Neyber, will discuss the role of financial wellbeing in improving staff engagement, productivity and motivation.The interactive roundtable discussion will also cover how today’s working lives impact workplace productivity in Britain, what financial mindfulness means, and how changing societal influences affect workforces.Kalia (pictured) will also examine the key findings of Neyber’s Working well report, January 2016, which was conducted in collaboration with the Social Market Foundation. The report found that 70% of all respondents and 80% of millennial respondents were affected by financial worries in the past year. It also found that financial issues cause 24% of respondents to feel exhausted, and 16% struggle to concentrate at work because of financial concerns.Kalia said: “The UK has had quite a poor track record with productivity in the past, driven by a skills shortage that employers are powerless to control.“Financial wellbeing is not a new thing but it has been somewhat overlooked despite the fact that it affects reward and benefits across the board.“At the roundtable session, I am going to share data from the Working well report and [encourage] employers to open up about their experiences with the issues their employees are facing to make the session interactive.“I will also discuss whether employees’ financial wellbeing is actually employers’ responsibility. The fact is, employers want their employees to have their mind on their job.”Employee Benefits Connect 2016 will take place on 9 March at the Lancaster London.

5 questions for FrenchSwiss artist Julian Charrière

first_imgRelated posts:5 questions for blues musician Steve Arvey 5 questions for a Costa Rican oxcart painter 5 questions for a Costa Rican singer 5 questions for a couple of clowns in Costa Rica This week, Julian Charrière is in San José to kick off his first solo exhibit Latin America: an array of complex artwork exploring the concepts of time, nature, entropy and geology.Charrière, 28, was born in Switzerland to a Swiss father and French mother. He studied art at the École cantonale d’art du Valais, the Berlin University of the Arts and Olafur Eliasson’s Institute of Spatial Experiments. A resident of Berlin, Germany for the past 11 years, he had had  solo exhibitions in Germany, France, Switzerland, United States and now Costa Rica.His art incorporates natural materials he has found in the different remote locations he has visited. These include a 30,000-year-old iceberg in Iceland, a gigantic Bolivian salt flat, volcanoes in Mexico, Stalin’s nuclear test sites in Kazakhstan and the isolated region of Chernobyl. He collects both materials and information that he later uses to create works using various techniques and media, including photography, sculpture and installations.One of his most recognized pieces, created with German artist Julius von Bismarck, is called Some pigeons are more equal than others. The artists created a device that trapped and quickly dyed the feathers of random pigeons in the Piazza San Marco, Venice, causing passersby to notice an animal that is generally overlooked as part of the landscape.Charrière’s solo exhibition Siempre cuenta cuántos cuentos cuentas will be inaugurated on Thursday, Oct. 20 at the Despacio Gallery. The Tico Times visited Despacio to speak with Charrière about his life and work at Despacio, located between Calle 9 and Avenida Central. Excerpts follow.Why did you become an artist?As a young child, I wanted to be a cook and an explorer who would go into places that nobody had gone before. After a while, I understood that we’ve already been everywhere. Then I thought I could be an architect; I liked the idea of building things that have utility.In high school, I had a very interesting art teacher, and I thought that maybe I didn’t want to be a cook or an architect; I could bring all of these things together and make art. [My work] is a little bit about cooking ideas. It’s also a little bit about architecture, somehow, but there’s much more freedom… From one encounter to the other, it happened. I was lucky enough to get into a program, to get to know all of these great people in Berlin.Berlin is still very important for creation in Europe. It’s the city with the biggest number of creative people and artists in Europe, so you’ve a lot of production and great energy to create there. It’s not an art market like it would it be in New York or London. Every artist is there to produce. The space is very cheap. It’s a creative economy with studios, print shops and workshops that are very specialized. Charrière’s artwork explores scientific phenomena. (Courtesy Eddy Mottaz)How did you come up with the idea of the red pigeon?The pigeon is very interesting because humans took it from the natural world 1,000 years ago and domesticated it like a device. At some point, the pigeon was an apparatus of communication that we used to send messages. We took an animal, living in nature, and made it into a device to be able to communicate.At some point, that device became obsolete. It’s not interesting anymore. Now, pigeons hang around, depend on us and share public spaces and cities with us. They’re also sharing the urban landscape; we share the same infrastructure, but we forget that. So we were interested on focusing attention on them. When you place color on the pigeon, the pigeon becomes somebody. Usually a pigeon is very plain and you never distinguish them. Once you have a red pigeon, and see it every day, then you start having a relationship with it. You have to a relationship with other species that are in the same space, which I think it’s a nice result. It works as a sort of graffiti… creating these moving dots, which focus your attention on different objects depending on where they are.How did you come to focus your work on the ideas of time and entropy? Time is very important, but it’s a very abstract concept… you think about 1,000 years without being able to grasp what that really is. You can think about your grandfather, your great-grandfather and your great-great-grandfather. After that, it’s a mess.Now we’re talking ecology and the legacy [we’ll leave for] the future… What are we going to leave behind when we’re not here anymore? This is something that is very bound to the arts because of culture and its traces. The idea of a museum, culture, and voyage is about traces. Going to space is about traces… This is something that I wanted to reflect through images. A lot of people write about it. For me writing is not my main medium, so I represent it through objects or visual ideas.How did you get the idea of extracting lithium from the Bolivian desert?Lithium is the material of the future. Everybody needs it. Communication needs lithium. Green energy needs lithium. [The use of] lithium is rising because we need to save energy. I read about mining and found that there was this big salt flat in Bolivia with all of this lithium lying underneath the salt… It’s a very beautiful and fragile ecosystem due to its dryness. Everything is very connected, delicate and crystalline. The salt is also a crystal and it’s very important in alchemy, which I’m very interested in.Before I went, I did a lot of research. I contacted miners and indigenous people, who are a little bit against the lithium production… The end result was very visual, a very heavy sculpture made out of tons of salt and lithium brine. Nobody knows what lithium looks like; I didn’t know lithium was a liquid and found in a desert. It’s something very mysterious and magical. The material itself is so beautiful, and people don’t talk too much about it. “We Are All Astronauts,” by Julian Charrière. (Courtesy of Julian Charrière)Why do you feel the need to research the relationship between humanity and nature?Nobody is dealing properly with this problem between nature and humanity,.. If you look into nature today, you’ll find isotopes and acid rain. Everything is going to change. You’re not going to find something [one hundred percent] natural… Since it’s so blurry, I find it very interesting to try to create spaces for others to reflect [upon it]. I travel so that others can reflect. Sometimes it’s easier with an image, and it’s more direct than reading a text. You’re offering a space for reflection and it’s also my reflecting space. I like to share it.Sometimes people come with a very simple mentality. For example, you see the photo of a man burning an iceberg, and it’s very easy to say it’s climate change, but then you’ve got to think, why is he doing that? It’s like the [metaphor] of the iceberg itself. You see the tip of the iceberg out of the water, but then you have to analyze what it actually is [underneath] .It’s like opening a door. People can have a view, a little of information, have the tip of the iceberg, or they can dive into it. This work is so small [physically], but I can see more and go super deep. You can go deeper, deeper and deeper. You can either understand more or get lost. When you admit that you’re lost in reality, it’s because you’re looking for explanations. It’s the feeling of trying to find an answer.For more information on Julian Charrière’s first solo exhibition in Latin America, visit Despacio’s Facebook Page.

(AP Photo/Matt Dunham, File) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK — Your sister, best friend or beloved cousin just had her first baby and you’d like to treat your favoured newborn to some luxury. But where to begin?Where you live and how you shop — online only, swanky department stores or exclusive boutiques — will help determine your options, along with the fast-moving local trends where your little “royal” resides.The mindset of baby’s parents also matters. Do they have traditional taste? Are they modernists? Is laid-back chic, chemical free or New Age more their style?In celebration of the upcoming birth of the first baby for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, some gear and gift ideas to get you started:PRAM OR STROLLERWhat does actual royalty use? Well, in Britain it’s usually Silver Cross. Founded in 1877, the company has been bouncing royal babies in their fancy prams since the birth of King George VI. Prince Charles got around in one when he was born and now the three children of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, have shared their Silver Cross ride.The company has lots of options if you can’t afford the top of the line, hand-built Silver Cross Surf Aston Martin, for example. It’s available at Harrods for about $4,000, as is the Marie-Chantal Kensington for nearly $2,000. They convert from carry pram to stroller. Silver Cross is available in stores around the world, including the United States.Too rich for your blood, or simply not the right vibe? Go for UPPAbaby (one in the Vista collection with a bassinet runs nearly $1,000) or a fun and funky Bugaboo. The convertible Track collection from Bugaboo sells for up to $2,000 or so, depending on add-ons.ROYAL DUDSLet’s just cut to the chase. While thoroughly modern Meghan may choose less traditional looks for her No. 7 in line for the throne, sister-in-law Kate has some favourite British brands for her brood, including No. 3 Prince George and little sis Charlotte.The bite-size princess, especially, is quite the fashion influencer, with some of her smock dresses selling out in just a few hours. Thrifty Kate does believe in passing down, though she has two boys and a girl.Some of her brands: Amaia (Charlotte’s $184 burgundy coat for her first day of school), Pepa & Co. (George’s whale jumper — think sweater — when he was 3) and My 1st Years, because who can forget that adorable monogrammed robe George sported to meet then-President Barack Obama?Kate’s choices aren’t always hugely pricey, so don’t sweat it.And for Meghan’s royal bundle? Meghan the American. Meghan the Californian. Petit Tresor has all manner of gear, nursery furniture and baby blankets, including monogrammed cashmere blankets with crochet trim for up to $700. Elegant Child of Beverly Hills has a selection of Charlotte-worthy party dresses in the $380 to $480 range.For the feet? Perhaps the Duchess of Sussex will hop on the Freshly Picked bandwagon and outfit her baby in a pair of $60 “it” fringe moccasin-style soft shoes. There’s a wide range to choose from.SILVER SPOONS AND SUCHThere’s always that gift option of a keepsake. Take your pick at Tiffany & Co. for silver spoons, cups and baby brushes. Don’t miss the company’s earthenware banks for $125. They include elephants, pigs and bunnies.Queen Elizabeth II, the Duchess of Cambridge and various other royals and celebrities have been spotted at London’s high-end Fortnum & Mason department store. Online, you can find the timeless Harmony Barbell Rattle for 140 British pounds. It’s hand-tuned. It has 16 tones. It’s crafted from German silver with an ample covering of sterling for added strength.How about you hunt down a rare edition of a children’s classic book? Let Abebooks.com drop some knowledge on that. Search the site for the world’s most valuable editions.THAT CALIFORNIA VIBEMarkle has embraced mindfulness as her pregnancy has progressed. Jerico Mandybur is fresh out with “Neo Tarot: A Fresh Approach to Self-Care, Healing and Empowerment,” a beautiful deck of illustrated tarot cards published by Hardie Grant and available on Amazon for $22.48. Mandybur shows how to use the ancient cards and practices as healing tools first and foremost.Just how Southern California the Duchess of Sussex will get when it comes to her baby is unknown. The nursery at Frogmore Cottage, on the grounds of Windsor Castle, will reportedly be eco-friendly and gender-neutral in design touches heavy on grey and white.Will that colour scheme take off in baby gifts? Saks Fifth Avenue online sells an Aden (plus) Anais 100 per cent cotton baby blanket, the Dream Serengeti, in a grey print with rhinos for nearly $50.Stella McCartney isn’t a Californian, but she’s feeling “cool California vibes” in the latest from her children’s collection. That includes an adorable grey baby jumpsuit (for any gender) with a green and blue snake wending through, done in 100% organic cotton for $80.

capital out of Delhi to a faraway place strikes a chord with those who feel that the place is now so tainted by power and corruption that the only solution is its transfer to an inaccessible village Every day is a grim reminder of the sheer ugliness of Indias capitalthe monumental scale of its nefarious operations political backlashclass warsbattles for utilities and all the expected clashes brought on by sheer numbers and densities of peopleclosely packed and defined by greed The dissolution of the capital is a serious idea whose time has come When the British set up Calcutta as Indias first cityit was for mercantile reasons The citys accessibility through a large port and across the sea allowed goods to be transported to consumers in England The convenience of an urban centre to lend administrative credibility to a massive trade operation was both a necessity and a burdenbut Calcutta performed the function admirably Laterwhen the Empire altered its commercial roots to acquire a larger political stake in Indiathe shift of the capital to Delhi took on a different hue The grand vision of the subjugation of a people was realised in monumentalismdomed and classical architecture and grand axial symmetries in planning layouts Almost a century after the Great Durbar and the grandiose colonial visionthe pantomime of greatness and excessive power has become a sad satirical reality Except for Russia and its East European satellitesnowhere does government makes its presence more physically felt than in the Indian capital Rashtrapati Bhawanthe prime ministers cordoned residencethe diplomatic enclaveministers bungalowsbureaucrats flatsministry officesforeign service apartmentsnaval staff quartersservices headquartersnot to mention the mile-upon-mile of public housingchippedpeeling and smudged bureaucratic citadelswasteful and degraded that are the visible public face of India Everything about the Delhi skyline is a reminder of the eternal presence of the government Throughout the world there are examples of capital cities that have remained only minor places of political culture and have let their larger metros develop into cultural and business centres Look westward and you will see how little a citys urbanism is affected by bureaucratic presence Canadas capital Ottawa has a small town feela minor European streetscape of horse carriages and cobble stones The cultural component of Paris far overwhelms its political importance; in Londonthe prime ministers home is just another door on Downing Street Even Washington DC designed on axial symmetries similar to Delhi has the urban atmosphere of a stretched fairground where politics survives along with museums and galleries No special bungalows for congressmenno housing for the servicesno architectural privileges for bureaucratsno party headquarters Politics is just another presence in the ordinary scheme of the city Delhihoweveris a city of overlapping influences where industrypoliticsbusinessfinanceculture are now all part of the same decision-making process Business heads influence economic policy decisions; bureaucrats are selected to head art museums and national science institutions; police officers are transferred for not towing unstated administrative directives These are all the shadowy undercurrents of excessive and uncomfortable proximitieswhere Indian political and economic culture today remains trapped in colonial clothes Moreoverthe capital today has become an unfortunate handicap to a nation no longer governed by a Centre (and often not governed at all) As it standsmany states pay little heed to Delhi Uttar PradeshGujaratWest BengalBihar and Tamil Nadu among others are serious individual playerswith great veto powersoften rendering the Centre ineffective The dissolution of the capital may be a first step towards an eventual devolution of power to these or other smaller entities Of coursethe mere transfer of the capital from Delhi to another place would result in a recongregation of the old guard in the new place Separation of those who govern from those who run business and industryfrom those that make policy and economic decisionsand those who administer art and culturewould return responsibility where it belongs to individual and institutional choice Such a separation would effectively break the deep nexus between politicsreal estatethe bureaucracy and business How then do you disperse the politicalbusiness and cultural wealth of Delhi Some in the art world favour a move to make Bhopal the cultural capital For its central locationsome suggest Nagpur for political administration Yet othersMumbai as fiscal capital and Cochin for the armed services Whatever the new locationsa number of smaller capitals would be far preferable to one unwieldy one And though its hard to predict the precise character of a dissolved capital or indeed the spirit of its new smaller avatarsthe mere wish for an

government has asked the Centre for an institutional credit mechanism to help the 31 lakh farmers who cannot avail crop loans due to pending debts Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis led a delegation of senior BJP and Shiv Sena ministers and elected members to meet Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh in New Delhi Friday At the end of the meeting

legislature assembly and council in the ongoing session Congress and NCP have been systematically working to expose the Sena and BJP divide in the current session At the meeting two of the key issues raised by the delegation were: the Centre should evolve an institutional credit mechanism to bring maximum farmers in the crop loan bracket and the Centre and state can together work to address the

their outstanding loans amount to Rs 30500 crore” While the state government is not against the loan waiver it is not economically feasible to write-off the loans of such magnitude immediately as it would have an adverse impact on the ongoing policies and projects undertaken to help the agriculture sector and make farmers self reliant At the meeting Fadnavis gave details about the state’s agriculture status and challenges He said “The Centre will have to work out a mechanism to help the state to address the problems of farmers” There are 108 crore farmers in Maharashtra who have
