Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img Buying low and selling high. It’s a critical investment strategy that seems blindingly obvious to most of us. But it’s one that many share investors seem to be forgetting right now. It’s why there are mountains of top FTSE 100 dividend stocks that remain left on the shelf despite their rock-bottom prices.Economic downturns and stock market crashes are nothing new. They’re frightening and they take a bite out of our investment returns. However, studies show us that most share investors tend to make great returns even accounting for bouts of market volatility. Those that buy and hold stocks for the long run make an average annual return of between 8% and 10%.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…Snapping up cheap shares following the 2020 market crash gives us all a chance to maximise those returns. And the opportunities to buy some choice dividend shares remains strong despite some high-profile payout cuts in recent months.A 7%-yielding dividend stockFTSE 100 share Babcock International is one dividend share that’s attracting my attention today. At current prices the defence contractor carries a forward yield just shy of 7%. It trades on an ultra-low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of six times as well.Global defence spend has spiked in recent years and recent news flow suggests that this trend is set to continue. Sure, the economic consequences of Covid-19 will cause governments to scale back spending. But souring global diplomacy among major nations and a growing terrorist threat mean that arms-related expenditure will likely keep on rising. As an important supplier to Western militaries, Babcock International can therefore expect profits to keep racing ahead for some many years yet.Another FTSE 100 bargainI’d also pile into DS Smith at current prices. I bought into this FTSE 100 share a couple of years ago because it appealed to me as both an exciting growth and dividend stock. And fresh financials released last week reinforced my positivity.Then, the packaging giant said that soaring e-commerce sales continued to drive adjusted profits higher, as did rising demand for packaging made from sustainable sources. And the future remains very bright. As the business said, “the core market growth drivers of e-commerce, consumer and retail channel evolution and plastic substitution are more relevant than ever in the post-Covid-19 environment.”At current prices DS Smith trades on a forward P/E ratio of 11 times. It carries a bulky 4.6% dividend yield, too. And so I’d use recent price weakness as an opportunity to buy this FTSE 100 star.A 9% FTSE 100 yieldDirect Line Insurance Group also looks too good to miss at current prices. Today it can be snapped up on a forward P/E multiple of 11 times for 2020, though admittedly this isn’t why it catches my eye. Its 9% dividend yield makes it one of the best FTSE 100 income stocks to buy today.Even nervous investors can afford to buy Direct Line today. Even when people’s spending power falls during tough economic times like these their demand for general insurance remains robust. Sales of car insurance products, a specialty of this FTSE 100 insurer, stay particularly strong owing to its legal requirements. In my opinion the company’s cheap valuation doesn’t reflect its rock-hard defensive qualities and this makes it a top buy today. Image source: Getty Images.

Securitization of Reperforming Loans Gives Fannie Mae Options

first_img Share Save Tagged with: Fannie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities Reperforming Loans Securitization Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Secondary Market Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Later this year, Fannie Mae will begin securitizing reperforming mortgage loans (RPLs) on its balance sheet, according to an announcement from Fannie Mae on Monday.Reperforming mortgage loans are those that were delinquent at one point but subsequently returned to current status. Fannie Mae completed 6,592 loan modifications in February; the reperforming loans that will be packaged for securitization include loans that returned to current status either with or without the help of a loan modification, according to Fannie Mae.The securitization of these loans gives Fannie Mae the option of further reducing its retained mortgage portfolio by selling the mortgage-backed securities to investors. The portfolio contracted at an annual rate of 27.8 percent in February, which translated to a month-over-month decline of more than $11 billion down to a value of about $337.2 billion by the end of the month, according to Fannie Mae’s February 2016 Monthly Volume Summary. Fannie Mae’s mortgage portfolio has contracted in all but four months since June 2010; at the beginning of that stretch, the amount of unpaid principal balance (UPB) of the loans in the portfolio was $818 billion.“With these securitizations we’ll have more flexibility to manage our risk and reduce the size of our portfolio,” said Bob Ives, VP of Retained Portfolio Asset Management at Fannie Mae. “Over the long run, these securitizations can benefit investors, Fannie Mae, and taxpayers.”Fannie Mae has announced enhanced loan level disclosures for this population of RPLs; the enhanced disclosures will include updated credit scores at issuance, delinquency status, and modification details. Fannie Mae will also provide rounded unpaid principal balances for this round of RPLs due to borrower privacy considerations, and the early notification of the program is designed to allow market participants to prepare their systems to accept new data, according to Fannie Mae.Click here for more information on Fannie Mae’s mortgage-backed securities.

This is the third article of the series)15th July 2020 marks 111th birth anniversary of G. Durgabai. In this piece, I attempt to provide a glimpse into the wide-ranging interventions of the most active woman member of the Constituent Assembly. Born on 15th July 1909 in Rajahmundri, Kakinada, G. Durgabai participated in the freedom movement since her early childhood. At the age of 12, she quit school to protest imposition of English as medium of education and at the age 14, she volunteered at Indian National Congress’s conference in Kakinada. Later she studied at Benaras Hindu University and Waltair and Law College, Madras and practiced law at Madras High Court and Supreme Court of India.[1] She joined Constituent Assembly on 9th December 1946 from Madras. The Most Active Woman Member- The Indian Constituent Assembly had 15 women members in the 299 member body (around 5%). But not all women members actively participated in the assembly. Kamala Chaudhari, Leela Ray, Malati Chowdhary never spoke in the assembly, and few of the women members left assembly membership in between. But G. Durgabai was the most frequent voice in the assembly. She spoke on wide range of issues from film censorship to judiciary (some of which discussed below). She was member of the Rule Making Committee (the only woman member). She spoke most regularly as member of this committee and introduced various proposals for effective functioning of the Constituent Assembly. She was also member of Steering Committee of the assembly. Recognizing her important role, Granville Austin is his seminal work on Indian Constituent Assembly counted her in his list of the ’21 most important figures of the assembly’. However in a rather sexist manner he referred to her as ‘Wife of C.D. Deshmukh’ in her ‘After Constituent Assembly Introduction’. [2] On Judiciary: Her Most Frequent Interventions Apart from intervening on range of occasions on rules of working of Constituent Assembly, the second most frequent theme where she intervened was judiciary and judicial administration. Herself a lawyer, she spoke on following issues related to judiciary- On role of Chief Justice of India in appointment of judges of provincial courts.[3] On establishment of new high courts in any newly created provinces.[4] On citizenship of judges.[5] On Appellate jurisdiction of Supreme Court in Civil matters.[6] On abolition of jurisdiction of Privy Council.[7] On Sex Work The issue of prostitution (or rather sex work) is highly debated within the feminist discourse marked by the victim- agent dilemma i.e. when are women to be considered victims needing protection and when do women stand as active agents negotiating with power and carving out their own spaces.[8] However Constituent Assembly discourse saw sex workers only as ‘women at the mercy of their exploiters'[9], who needed to be ‘saved’ and ‘rescued’. Deshmukh along with her other women colleagues debated the question of sex work only within frame work of trafficking and forced labour under Ar. 23 of the Constitution. Prof. K.T. Shah moved an amendment to Ar. 23 of the Constitution suggesting that dedication of young women to Devdasis in temples shall be specifically prohibited through Ar. 23. Durgabai supported Shah’s position, and expressed her gratitude to him for his proposal. Although she advised him that since specific legislation had already been passed in Madras, there was no need for a categorical provision to abolish the Devdasi system in the Constitution. [10] This is in continuation of the mainstream feminism during the freedom struggle where mainstream feminists aimed at ‘rescuing’ sex workers and providing them with alternative shelters.[11] In this abolitionist zeal of Durgabai and her woman colleagues there was no recognition of sex workers and their agency. In fact, Forbes records that during the freedom struggle itself, sex workers themselves had resisted the reformer’s overtures of mainstream feminists. [12] However, invoking spiritual superiority of Indian women, Durgabai and her colleagues saw sex work against the duty of women in upholding moral standards.[13] Few years later Durgabai was ‘aghast’ at a petition in Allahabad High Court by one sex worker named Husna Bai who argued for her “right to carry on prostitution or the business of brothel keeping” as her fundamental right under Ar. 19.[14] On Fundamental Rights – Durgabai also intervened in debates around fundamental right. The three rights she primarily spoke on were Ar. 22, Ar. 25 and Ar. 32. On 16th September 1949, the Constituent Assembly debated Ar. 15-A of the Draft Constitution (Ar. 22 of the current Constitution). The article faced serious criticism from the members of the house for its wide power of preventive detention and anti-liberty stand. One of the members Shri Jaspat Roy Kapoor argued that the chapter on fundamental rights should be re named as “Limitations on Fundamental Rights” Another member referred to preventive detention powers under Ar. 22 as ‘crown of failure’. [15] However Durgabai sided with the position of Drafting Committee a ‘very happy compromise’ and argued that Ar. 22 is in fact an improvement over pre-constitutional public security acts. On another occasion, she moved an amendment to Ar. 25 and argued that the words ‘any class or section’ under sub-clause (b) of clause (2) of. Ar. 25 should be replaced with ‘all sections and classes’. The aim of her proposal was to enlarge the scope of social reform and welfare under the Article. She argued that there are various classes of religious institutions run by Hindus. Thus the clause should not be limited to temples, it should also cover maths, religious pathshalas, and educational institutions run by Hindus. [16] Speaking on Ar. 32, she termed the right of approaching the Supreme Court, ‘fundamental to all the fundamental rights’ and remarked- “the right to move the Supreme Court by appropriate proceedings for the enforcement of a person’s rights is a very very valuable right that is guaranteed under this Constitution. In my view this is a right which is fundamental to all the fundamental rights guaranteed under this Constitution. The main principle of this article is to secure an effective remedy to the fundamental rights guaranteed under this Constitution.”[17] Later, in the same remark, she also discussed whether principle of res judicata applies to exercise of remedies under writ jurisdiction. Sexism Faced- Indian Constituent Assembly saw various instances of sexism and sexist comments against women members in the assembly. G. Durgabai was no exception to it.[18] On 15th October 1949, G. Durgabai, as member of the Rule Making committee, moved certain proposals for addition of new rules to the Constituent Assembly rules. Naziruddin Ahmad, upset with the rules argued against them and added that, “a further difficulty has been placed by the Drafting Committee on the Members in that they have selected a lady Member to propose all these difficult rules.” He further went on, “the method followed by the Drafting Committee is like that of the Communists who fight with ladies at the front, so as to make it impossible for the other party to strike… The difficulty is that we cannot be hard upon her. After all some kind of gracefulness is necessary in dealing with a lady member. The fact is that the Drafting Committee has put a lady member to fight their cause.” His comments mark a classic sexist instance where a woman is not seen strong enough to be sent in front to defend a position; rather she is seen as ‘other’ in the fight between men. The stereotypical assumption is that it is not a war, a business for woman; it is the issue between two men who need to fight it out themselves rather than sending a woman. His language did not draw much flak from the members. Later in her response, Durgabai herself questioned the comments of Ahmad and expressed her regret that male members of the house were still conscious of ‘sex business’ though the women Members had completely forgotten it. She added that she very much wished that there should be no longer any talk of ‘this question of men and women’ in the assembly.[19] Apart from the above mentioned issues, she also spoke on the question of language,[20] question of film censorship,[21] protection of children from abandonment,[22] financial implications of declaration of Emergency,[23] etc. Thus, G. Durgabai was one of the leading voices of Constituent Assembly of India. Her role in the assembly continues to impact lives of women today. From sex work to her approach on preventive detention, critical engagement with her stands is warranted.Views are personal only. (Surbhi undertook her LL.M.

Gender-specific toilets flushed away at Regent’s Park

first_imgA motion has passed at Regent’s Park College to reverse the conversion of the only gender-neutral toilets on site into a male and disabled toilet.The change comes following what certain members of the JCR called a “disappointing” decision by the college administration to make these toilets available only to male and disabled students over the Christmas holidays, which was not discussed with the undergraduate student body.There was particular concern that the sign on the door discouraged disabled women from using the toilet, especially as it is the only disabled toilet in that area of the College.Regent’s Gender and Sexuality Representative Will Tomsett told Cherwell that the initial decision by the college authorities was the result of a complaint by a male member of cleaning staff, who felt uncomfortable cleaning the unisex toilets whilst women were using them.Tomsett, who proposed the motion, underlined the importance of gender-neutral toilets to the ‘welcoming and accepting body’ of the college.He also underlined how they planned to tackle the issue that had caused the conversion in the first place, telling Cherwell, “At the meeting we discussed putting up a sign saying ‘These toilets are cleaned by male members of staff’, which would hopefully negate the awkwardness felt by the member of staff upon encountering women users of the facilities.”The Welfare officer at Regent’s Park, Isobel Wilson, likewise expressed her satisfaction with the decision of the JCR, commenting, “Regent’s prides itself on its supportive and inclusive community, but to be so it is fundamental that we have a safe space for every member and guest of the college.”“The toilets, which service the college hall, are deemed particularly important with the consideration of transgender guests who may be visiting the college for Formal Hall, as well as providing a safe space for any students of the college who are unsure or undecided of their gender.” She went on to explain that she is now confident that the SCR will listen to the concerns of the undergraduate body over the issue and will reinstall the gender-neutral toilet with immediate effect.JCR president Alex Rennison issued the following statement, “The reinstatement of the toilets as a gender neutral space will of course be a change for the better, with the JCR feeling strongly that a reversion to gender-binary use would be a step back for a community that prides itself on being welcoming to all students and guests alike.”The motion could prove an important step to raising the awareness of the matters of sexuality across the university. Regent’s Gender and Sexuality Representative has expressed his hope that the decision acts as a stimulus for change and discussion.He commented, “I’d like to see unisex toilets provided in other colleges as all too often it is easy to ignore the real issues that trans people are confronted with in the simple act of going to the toilet.”“I welcome the recent survey conducted of college LGBTQ reps across the University relating to the provision of gender neutral toilets in colleges; creating a safe space for trans students and guests is a really important priority for JCRs to have, and I’m glad to see that this is being discussed across Oxford.”An additional motion to turn the women-only toilets into gender-neutral toilets has also been proposed, but was yesterday rejected at the general meeting with the support of Tomsett.Tomsett added, “I believe that to do so would be removing a safe space for female guests, as well as the fact that a number of female members of staff use these toilets to change into their work clothes at the start of the day.”Second year English student Morgan Harries told Cherwell,“I am really glad that the JCR managed to pass the motion, especially as we were not consulted on the change in the first place. These gender-neutral toilets prove our our college’s attitude of acceptance and its inclusive environment.”last_img read more

Revealed: Oxford research associate’s far-right links

first_imgCW: This article contains reference to anti-Semitic and Islamophobic content and language.An Oxford research associate and former Exeter fellow – who was scheduled to speak at a far-right conference last week – wrote, ‘liked’, and retweeted anti-Semitic and Islamophobic content, Cherwell can reveal.A University spokesperson stressed he was no longer part of University staff, leaving in 2017.On Twitter, Leonard also argued that immigration “should be fought with every means possible,” writing that “tens of millions of Muslims support ISIS,” and claiming that immigrants are responsible for 82% of crime in Sweden.Leonard also wrote: “With so few Jews, it is extraordinary that the [Swedish] print media is largely owned and edited by Jewish families.”George Soros, who frequently features in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, was also targeted. According to Leonard, the “arch plutocrat” desires “the break-up of the national consciousness” via immigration.After being contacted by Cherwell two days before the separate Traditional Britain Group (TBG) conference – which was held last Saturday week – Dr Stephen Pax Leonard distanced himself from the event, stating that he had cancelled his speech “some time ago” after realising that TBG was a far-right group.TBG gained notoriety in 2013 when it called for those of “non-European stock” to be “requested to return to their natural homelands.” When Cherwell contacted TBG founder Gregory Lauder-Frost, however, the far-right organiser said that Dr Leonard pulled out “precisely 48 hours beforehand.” On the TBG website, the group complained that the cancellation of his “long-standing” booking at such short notice had prevented them from finding an adequate replacement.The ethnographer would have been speaking alongside representatives of the German AfD and Austrian FPÖ, who have been criticised in recent years for Islamophobia.Two of Leonard’s books have been published by Arktos Publishing, which is led by UK CEO Gregory Lauder-Frost. According to its editor-in-chief Jason Jorjani, the publishing house is “the leading press of the alt right.” It is also linked to Identity Evropa, a group the Southern Poverty Law Center says “peddles the delusion of white genocide.”In his most recent book, The Ideology of Failure – which was to be the topic of his talk – Leonard rails against Islam, ‘cultural Marxism,’ and migrants, who, he argues, “are committing rape and murder on a daily basis.”His previous book, Travels in Cultural Nihilism, in which he argued that diversity was equivalent to “cultural abandonment and ethnic dilution,” was described as by white supremacists online as ‘eloquent’ and ‘impassioned’.Leonard personally recommended the book via Twitter to Pamela Geller, the far-right anti-Islam campaigner and friend of Tommy Robinson.A University spokesperson told Cherwell: “Dr Leonard was employed as a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Oxford on a project in linguistic anthropology until 2017 when his fellowship ended.“On leaving the University, he was accorded the title of Research Associate, which is often extended to external researchers collaborating with Oxford academics on specific projects. Dr Leonard has no current collaborations with Oxford and this unpaid title is due to expire in April 2019.“Dr Leonard is not a member of Oxford University staff, no longer writes or comments as an Oxford academic, and the University therefore has no comment on his current activities and publications.”Dr Leonard is currently a Senior Research Fellow at Durham University, who described his views as “wholly inconsistent” with their own.Dr Leonard has been contacted for further comment on his online activity.An earlier version of this article stated that Dr Leonard was employed by Durham University. We’d like to clarify that he is actually a Senior Research Fellow, and is not employed by St. Chad’s or by the University. The Senior Research Fellow position is an entirely honorary position and expires at the end of this academic year.last_img read more

IS IT TRUE SEPTEMBER 7, 2018

first_imgWe hope that today’s “IS IT TRUE” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way? IS IT TRUE we predict that the Mayor will stack the City Council Chambers this coming Monday evening with supporters of the proposed $28 million dollars Aquatic Center at Garvin Park?  …when the Mayor makes his public pitch to City Council to build the Aqua Center we hope they will ask him to give them a detailed breakdown on how much of our tax dollars has he spent on projects since he been in office?  …we hear that total the projects costs he presents to City Council will be mind-boggling? IS IT TRUE on Monday we predicted that Garvin Park across from the entrance of Bosse Field will be the proposed site for the new $28 million dollars Aquatic Center? …its now being reported by other media outlets that the new Garvin Park Aquatic Center will accommodate the needs of competitive swimmers of as well as recreational swimmer?. …the proposed Garvin Park Aquatic Center will also have designated areas for diving, competitive swimming, as well as swimming lessons if the Evansville City Council approves this $28 million dollars project? IS IT TRUE we still stand by our prediction that once the $28 million Aquatic Center is finished that the Mayor will sign a contract with the local YMCA to manage the new Aquatic Center?  …that the local downtown YMCA is currently building a new state-of-the facility next to their current location?  …since the city is going to sign a long-term contract with YMCA to manage the new Aquatic Center we wonder why the Mayor didn’t suggest to the YMCA Board of Directors that they make the new Aquatic Center part of the new downtown YMCA facility? … it’s obvious that the blending of the new YMCA facility and the proposed Garvin Park Aquatic Center into an adjoining facility would not only save a bunch of money but also would be the crowning jewel for development of downtown?IS IT TRUE  Mayor Winnecke told the Courier and Press that “he’s really disappointed by the decision to reduce the security force at the Evansville Regional Airport?” …Winnecke also told the Courier and Press that “I’ve expressed that opinion to Mr. Joest multiple times over the last 12 months?”  …the Mayor makes 3 out of 5 appointments to the Evansville Regional Airport Authority?  …it’s common knowledge that the Mayor has a major influence on the decisions on board that he makes the majority appointments to?  …many of our readers feel that its time that the Mayor puts political pressure on the current Airport board members by asking them to enhance public safety at the Evansville Regional Airport Authority Board?IS IT TRUE  several years ago we remember when the “Jacobsville Join In” office was officially opened on North Main Street?  …that a large group of people observed the Mayor, officials from Echo Housing and the Evansville DMD officially cutting the ribbon to opening the office?  …at the official opening, the dignitaries in attendance told us how “Jacobsville Join In” is going to make major positive changes in the North Main Street corridor? …recently without fanfare “Jacobsville Join In” group abruptly vacated their office located on North Main Street?  …that “Jacobsville Join In” was sponsored by ECHO Housing and allegedly received their operating funds from the Evansville DMD?  …we hope the reason for the abrupt closing of “Jacobsville Join In” office on North Main Street didn’t have anything to do with the current “Forensic Audit” being conducted at ECHO Housing Corporation?IS IT TRUE that after all said and done last week Evansville showed that it could put on a controversial event without looking like fools?… Ford Center set a record for attendance at any event ever held or ever will be held with approximately 11,500 people jammed inside to show support for President Donald Trump?…the Evansville Police Department estimated that an additional 2,000 were outside wanting to get in but were denied entry due to the limited capacity of the venue to safely hold more than 11,500 people?…the recording capacity at Roberts Stadium was just over 14,000 that drove from miles around for a KISS concert in the mid 1970s when the Gotham rockers were the rage of the teenage nation and the kings of the nighttime world?…we do wonder if President Trump could have broken the record that KISS set if the capacity to hold more people was in place?IS IT TRUE there were resistance members who held a rally far over by The Centre whose numbers have been estimated around a 1,000 people? …except for three solitary incidents both crowds were well behaved toward one another and that is a reason for all of the Tri-State to be proud?…one of those three instances was a disturbed person who shook a knife and a middle finger at a helicopter that was circling the Ford Center for some undisclosed official purpose?… Evansville showed better behavior that big American cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York when President Trump showed up?…in these other cities violence and destruction of property are commonplace when President Trump comes to town and that says very bad things about the people and cities where such things occur unopposed?IS IT TRUE that the real head-scratcher of the day was the fact that Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke seemly invented a reason to be out of town for a presidential visit that makes most Mayors gleeful with civic pride? …what really puzzled us is why didn’t the Mayor allow Deputy Mayor Steve Schaefer to publicly welcomed the President to Evansville? …we hear that President Trump was cordial about the fact that no one from the Winnecke Administration was available to welcome him to Evansville since he held off on making up names for the cast of characters who normally would have been at the front of the receiving line?IS IT TRUE we were told that Steve Hammer give some of his 70 VIP tickets to the “Trump and Braun” political rally at the Ford Center to the some of the following well known local Republicans? …they were; Steve Schaefer, Richard Martin, Hobart Scales, Nicholas Hermann, Michael Duckworth, Christine Keck, Gary Schutte, Jr., Alfonso Vidal, David Clark, Marsha Abell Barnhart, Aulden Nance, Brenda Goff, Jeff Knight,  Michelle and Frank Peterlin, Chad Howard,  Dottie Thomas, Aaron Wilson, and Danny Koester to name a few?  …we were told that they really enjoyed themselves?Todays“Readers Poll” question is: Do you feel that the new owners of Ellis Park are going to invest the money to make the track and casino more upscale and customer friendly?Please take time and read our articles entitled “STATEHOUSE Files, Channel 44 News, LAW ENFORCEMENT, READERS POLL, BIRTHDAYS, Hot Jobs” and “LOCAL SPORTS”.  You now are able to subscribe to get the CCO daily.If you would like to advertise on the CCO please contact us [email protected]: City-County Observer Comment Policy.  Be kind to people.

Bob Weir And Wolf Bros Welcome Sasha Dobson To Kick Off Two-Night Stand in New Jersey [Photos]

first_imgLoad remaining images Bob Weir and Wolf Bros boogied into Red Bank, New Jersey on Wednesday, March 13th, for the first of two nights at the historic Count Basie Theatre. Weir, along with bassist Don Was and drummer Jay Lane enthusiastically performed a mix of covers and original tunes to a tie-dye soaked crowd of around 1,500 at the nearly sold-out venue. Predictably, the easygoing vibe of the audience and the intimacy of the venue made for an exceedingly friendly atmosphere and attending the show felt like going to a family reunion.Related: On Tour With The Grateful Dead 1987: Reliving The First East Coast Shows After Jerry Garcia’s ComaThe band kicked off the show with a beautiful rendition of “Only a River”, a cut from Weir’s 2016 solo album Blue Mountain, and followed it with “The Winners” from Weir’s live collaboration with bassist Rob Wasserman. They then dug into the Grateful Dead’s repertoire, delivering a grooving “Jack Straw” before Weir swapped his acoustic guitar for an electric to rumble through crowd favorite, “Tennessee Jed”. Together, the rhythm players locked down the beat to allow Weir to launch his musical explorations during the song’s extended solo section; moments like this defined the night and provided insight into Weir’s mind and musicality. For those in the audience who only knew Weir as a rhythm guitarist (albeit one of the very best and most unique), these moments proved especially captivating.A cover of Bob Dylan’s “Maggie’s Farm” came next, showcasing Weir’s slide guitar techniques while Lane kept a tight and energetic beat as Was dug deeply into funky, inventive basslines. Weir returned to his own songbook and donned his gray Stratocaster for a quick “Shade of Grey” before moving purposefully into the Dead gem, “Weather Report Suite”. The gray-haired guitarist then launched into the turbulent and expected “Let It Grow”, ending the first set with a raucous jam.Weir and the boys started the second set with a spirited singalong in covering Kris Kristofferson’s “Me and Bobby McGee”. A second Grateful Dead song pairing followed, with “Lost Sailor” cascading satisfyingly right into “Saint of Circumstance”. Weir returned to the Dylan stockpile to break out “All Along the Watchtower” to roaring applause, and from the outro emerged a spicy reggae jam which brought seated holdouts to the aisles to dance. The band kept up the energy through “I Need a Miracle”, which saw Weir orchestrating blistering slide licks while the rhythm section swung.A tender “Looks Like Rain” fell next, delighting many in the audience with the raw emotion of one of Weir’s staple tunes. The outro saw Weir hit his soulful peak for the evening, belting improvised lyrics and howling “Here comes the rain!” An exceptionally smooth and energetic transition brought the band into a dynamic performance of “The Music Never Stopped”, and Weir colored the solo section with his last real bit of creative exploration for the evening. He then brought out special guest Sasha Dobson of Puss N Boots, a talented jazz singer from Weir’s Bay Area sphere, who provided backing vocals on a downright mean “Easy Answers”. The band transitioned from a final jam back into the outro of “The Music Never Stopped” with Dobson to end the second set. After a few moments of anticipatory applause, Weir, Was, Lane, and Dobson returned to the stage to deliver a heartrending “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” encore.Fans can check out the photos from Wednesday night’s show in the gallery below, courtesy of Chris Capaci.Bob Weir and Wolf Bros continue their tour tonight, March 14, with a second concert at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey, at 8 p.m.Setlist: Bob Weir and Wolf Bros | Count Basie Center for the Arts | Red Bank, NJ | 3/13/2019Set One: Only A River, The Winners, Jack Straw, Tennessee Jed, Maggie’s Farm (Bob Dylan cover), Shade of Grey, Weather Report Suite > Let It GrowSet Two: Me & Bobby McGee (Kris Kristofferson cover), Lost Sailor > Saint of Circumstance, All Along The Watchtower (Bob Dylan cover) > I Need A Miracle > Looks Like Rain > The Music Never Stopped > Easy Answers* > The Music Never Stopped*Encore: Knocking On Heaven’s Door* (Bob Dylan cover)* w/ Sasha DobsonBob Weir and Wolf Bros | Count Basie Center for the Arts | Red Bank, NJ | 3/13/2019 | Photos: Chris Capacilast_img read more

Leveling the playing field

first_imgWhile Khadka knew she wanted to attend college, for most students at her high school that meant perhaps Iowa State or the University of Iowa, not faraway Harvard.“Out-of-state schools aren’t really on the radar unless someone from your family went there,” she said. “But I wanted to see what Harvard was like … so I did a lot of research on the website. If you asked me where anything was on the site, I could tell you, because I read that site thoroughly.”While Khadka earned top grades in high school, the notion of attending Harvard didn’t feel as though it was in reach until she stumbled on a video about Lucerito Oritz ’10, a student from California who had received aid.“Just seeing that story made me realize that maybe I could afford this,” she said. “I went online and checked the net price calculator, and that was when I found out my parental contribution would be zero.“It felt unreal,” she added. “You hear things about how expensive college is all the time, but to get into my dream school, and then to see the financial aid offer, I said to myself, ‘Oh my God, this is real.’”As Harvard’s doors open wide to students from increasingly diverse backgrounds, Khadka, a Cabot House resident and social studies and statistics concentrator, said that it’s natural to see that shift reflected across campus and in classrooms.“Last semester, I took a class called the Economics of Education,” Khadka said. “And as we talked about the different aspects of education here in the U.S., what was interesting was that no single person in the class had the same experience. There were students who had gone to private schools, students from public schools, and students who had qualified for Head Start programs.“Whereas before you might only read about something in a paper, students in the class were able to give real-life insights,” she continued. “So the diversity in terms of socio-economic status has really transformed the classroom dynamics in some ways as well.”For new graduate Alicia Hamilton ’18, coming to Harvard was in many ways the culmination of her parents’ efforts to instill in her the importance of education.,Growing up in Kingston, Jamaica, Hamilton remembers her father picking her up from school every day and taking her to the travel agency he managed, where he would make sure she and her sister were conscientious about completing their homework.“Because he didn’t have a college education, my father went from managing a travel agency to working the front desk at a car rental agency,” said Hamilton, an Eliot House resident and history concentrator. “But even when he was working crazy hours, he always made it a priority to wake up in the morning and walk me to school, and still made sure that my homework was completed.”And as incredible as it felt to be accepted, knowing that not only would she be able to afford to attend Harvard but would graduate debt-free was beyond imagining. Hamilton will spend the next year teaching 11th-grade U.S. history in California as part of the third cohort of Harvard Teacher Fellows through the Graduate School of Education, with a goal of getting her license to teach in Massachusetts and working toward a master’s in education.“I thought it was a joke at first,” when she heard Harvard’s financial aid offer, she said. “My family was prepared to take out hundreds of thousands of dollars in loans for me to have this Harvard experience, so being able to attend what many people would consider the top university in the country for less than it would cost to attend community college, it’s not something you can wrap your mind around. You can’t put into words the blessing that it is.“For me, the Harvard Financial Aid Initiative has made Harvard a place of hope,” she said, reflecting on how it has changed the campus. “Harvard has become an attainable place of hope — somewhere people can invest their dreams in. It’s diversity in its truest form.” “The initiative was launched as a call to action for institutions of higher education to make sure they continued in the important societal role of being engines of opportunity for young people,” Donahue said. “We did a great deal of research to make sure we were reaching all talented students who might think of Harvard as an opportunity, and we actually came to the conclusion that we weren’t.”That realization, she said, led to the initiative and to new efforts to make sure that students around the world understood that Harvard was within their reach.“We wanted to deliver a clear message that Harvard’s doors are open to all talented students, so … what we said when we launched HFAI in 2004 was that if your family makes less than $40,000 a year, we will not ask them to contribute to the cost of your education,” she said. “We wanted to be simple and transparent and encourage young people to apply to Harvard, to assure them they would be considered on the merits of their achievements, without regard for their family’s ability to pay.”Two years after the initiative was launched, the income ceiling at which families pay nothing for the cost of a Harvard education was increased to $60,000, and in 2011 it was increased again, to $65,000. In addition, families with incomes between $65,000 and $150,000 contribute from zero to 10 percent of their income.“Access and affordability, enabled by generous financial aid, are fundamental to Harvard’s identity and excellence,” Harvard President Drew Faust said in 2011 in announcing expansion of the aid program. “We admit students without regard to their financial need, and we make sure that they are given the means to attend and take advantage of the Harvard College experience. This is a bedrock commitment.”,That commitment has led to a dramatic growth in funding for aid, from $80 million in 2005 to more than $190 million today. During this time, more than $1.8 billion in need-based scholarships has been awarded though the program.The initiative quickly became so deep a part of the Harvard experience that when the international financial crisis struck in 2008, Faust and Edgerley Family Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Michael D. Smith made it a point to protect it from budget cuts.“At the time I felt strongly, and I still do feel, that we had to find a way to continue to fund that, and to keep that program headed in the right direction,” Smith said. “We had done a tremendous amount to invest in financial aid and have it truly help talented students realize that they could come to Harvard and take advantage of the opportunities we have here, and not be held back because of their family’s particular financial circumstances. It was having such a huge impact on our students and the kinds of talent we were bringing here that it was clear we didn’t want to interrupt that in any way.”Five years later, Faust and Smith again made student aid a priority in Harvard’s capital campaign, drawing significant philanthropic attention to the issue, perhaps most notably in the form of Kenneth C. Griffin AB ’89.In 2014, Griffin made the largest gift in Harvard College history — more than $125 million — principally focused on supporting Harvard’s financial aid program. When announcing the gift, Griffin, founder and CEO of Citadel LLC, cited the importance of breaking down barriers to education.“The greatest legacy I can leave behind is for Harvard to open its doors to everyone who’s qualified to go there,” he said at the time. “Simply put, my Harvard experience changed my life. My hope is that with this gift we will make it possible for the best and brightest in our nation and in our world to have the same experience that I had at Harvard.”That generosity, Donahue said, has extended across the country and even around the globe.Roughly 12 percent of the Class of 2022 is composed of students from outside the country.“Another thing that is unusual about Harvard,” Donahue said, “is that we are able to fully extend our financial aid to admitted students from countries all over the world. As a result, we have a very different international student population than many other colleges and universities. Intelligence, leadership, and talent don’t fall along economic lines, and we want to be sure our doors are open to young people from across the globe.”One such young person is Ahilya Khadka ’19, who emigrated from Nepal to Iowa at age 16.“I went to an all-girls Catholic school in Kathmandu through 10th grade,” Khadka said. “But the main reason my parents decided to move to the U.S. was for the educational opportunities. Nepal has schools through secondary school, but after that it’s not as specialized, so a lot of students move to the U.S. for college.” “Everyone benefits from this increased socio-economic diversity in the classroom and beyond. All members of the Harvard community have to grow and listen to points of view that are very different from their own, and this has enhanced our collective understanding of what it means to be an educated citizen.” — Sally Donahue, Griffin Director of Financial Aid This is the fifth and final installment in Learning from Difference, a series on diversity at Harvard.When Brandon Buell applied to Harvard, he expected to be rejected. But here’s the twist: He got in.“I wanted to apply to one school that seemed like a real reach just so I could get rejected, move on to some other school, and never have to wonder ‘What if?’” said Buell ’20. “Harvard wasn’t even on my radar. I don’t think it was until I was accepted that I truly considered Harvard a possibility.”Often, though, getting into college and paying for it are two very different challenges, particularly for a kid like Buell, whose parents are factory workers and whose grandparents were dairy farmers.But that’s where Harvard’s Financial Aid Initiative (HFAI) comes in.Announced by then-President Lawrence Summers in 2004 and later expanded under President Drew Faust, HFAI was intended to open the College’s doors to exceptional students regardless of their economic backgrounds by providing grant aid to support — or in some cases cover the full cost of — attending Harvard for students from low-income families.For Buell, who grew up in a small, upstate New York town of fewer than 5,000 people and was one of just 28 students in his high school graduating class, that changed the game.“One of the primary reasons I came here was because the aid I received was far beyond what any other school gave me,” said Buell, a Leverett House resident and applied math and statistics concentrator. “There were schools giving me full-tuition merit scholarships, but I would have ended up paying more there than if I came here.”,While the initiative’s impact on students’ lives can be hard to overstate, Buell said its effects aren’t limited to the balance sheet.“One of them is the idea that this is an institution that belongs to you,” Buell said. “There is a connotation of Harvard as a bastion of wealth and elitism. If you feel like maybe you don’t belong here, that can stop you from wanting to snap up that acceptance letter. HFAI and the financial aid office do a great deal of work with low-income students to make Harvard feel much more inclusive.“But there is also just the fundamental question of ‘Can I afford this?’” he added. “HFAI has dismantled the financial obstacles to coming here.”That dismantling, Griffin Director of Financial Aid Sally Donahue said, was among the initiative’s goals from the beginning.By opening the College’s doors to exceptional students regardless of their family incomes, the initiative has brought to campus new diversity — both racial and economic — and has created opportunities for students from a wide range of backgrounds to interact and learn from one another.Since the start of the initiative, “We’ve seen about a 30 percent increase in the number of low-income students in the College,” Donahue said. “Over 16 percent of the Class of 2022 are first-generation students. Those changes are largely the result of our enhanced financial aid program, and have changed the face of the College.“Everyone benefits from this increased socio-economic diversity in the classroom and beyond. All members of the Harvard community have to grow and listen to points of view that are very different from their own, and this has enhanced our collective understanding of what it means to be an educated citizen.”Though financial aid for students has been part of Harvard’s educational model from the start — the College’s first scholarship was awarded in 1643 — the HFAI program takes the notion of providing aid to students and runs with it. “Intelligence, leadership, and talent don’t fall along economic lines, and we want to be sure our doors are open to young people from across the globe.” — Sally Donahue, Griffin Director of Financial Aidlast_img read more

Office of Sustainability unveils new mascot: Big Stu

first_imgCourtesy of Alyssa Carroll Big Stu, pictured, is the Office of Sustainability’s new mascot designed by senior Alyssa Carroll.Carroll, a marketing and visual communications design double-major, has been working with the office since the beginning of her junior year. She said that she has focused on strengthening the Office of Sustainability’s brand and was inspired to begin designing a mascot based on old Office of Sustainability promotional materials.“We found this really old poster from 10 or 15 years ago that some employee of the office had made, and [a squirrel] was on it, and all the interns and I were in love with him,” Carroll said. “We put the poster up in our office. Having these conversations about rebranding, it crossed my mind that maybe that would be a good way for people to relate to sustainability.”On Monday, the Office of Sustainability’s social media accounts made posts teasing a new mascot — before revealing the character the following day, on National Squirrel Appreciation Day.“We are hoping that by having a not-super-serious mascot, it’ll make sustainability more fun and accessible,” Carroll said. “It’s targeted at students — just kind of a silly way to get the word out about how to live more sustainably, especially in the context of Notre Dame, and how to use the resources on campus. Hopefully people will respond to it more so than they would to a more formal-sounding communication.”Carroll said that she and the other interns at the office brainstormed names before eventually settling on “Big Stu.”“We had a lot of conversations about what the name should be,” she said. “We wanted it to be catchy and go along with the theme of sustainability, but also just be fun. We decided on ‘Stu’ because it kind of works with ‘Stu-stainability.’ That’s not the only reason, but we all thought that it fit his persona.”Donnetta McClellan, Office of Sustainability project and communications coordinator, said that, in addition to social media, the office plans to use Big Stu for their “sustainability tips” and is working to have Big Stu displayed on a board in the Duncan Student Center.“We really do have a lot of fun in our office, and she wanted to use this as a way to show that it really is fun — you can be sustainable, you can do the right thing and you can still have fun doing it,” she said.While fun, McClellan also said that Stu serves an important purpose in communicating the importance of being sustainable.“We would like to use it as another communication tool,” she said. “The goal of the Office of Sustainability is not just reducing trash and recycling, but to communicate the sustainability as a whole that the campus is doing, and how to be more sustainable with our own lives at home as well as here. The mission of the Catholic University is also taking care of our common home — part of ‘Laudato Si’ from Pope Francis.”Carroll said she hopes that Stu will increase the Office of Sustainability’s visibility and encourage students to learn more about the office and get involved.“The Office of Sustainability does so many really cool things on campus, and as somebody who works there I feel like a lot of people, even my friends, don’t know what we’re doing on campus,” Carroll said. “I think it would be great if there was more awareness about what’s going on and more people participating in what we’re doing.”Tags: Big Stu, mascot, Office of Sustainability, Squirrel, sustainability On Tuesday, the Office of Sustainability revealed Big Stu to the world — the cartoon squirrel that will serve as the office’s new mascot.Big Stu was designed by Office of Sustainability graphic design intern and senior Alyssa Carroll, and will be used in the office’s promotional and educational materials. So far, Stu has appeared on Facebook and Twitter, and has his own new Instagram account.last_img read more

Trail Mix: Blake Christiana and Yarn plus more Rooster Walk tickets

first_imgYarn is the band I always wish I had found. Out of context, that doesn’t make much sense. To make it clearer, you should know that I help book a music festival in Bristol, TN/VA, and Yarn is a band that someone else on the music committee found. Someone else discovered them and brought them to the table.That still sticks in my craw. How could a band this good miss my notice? How could someone else bring them to the table before I did? This reality is particularly loathsome, considering how quickly I became a very big fan of Yarn.Brooklyn-based Yarn combines the dusty country sounds of Texas with the bluegrass pickin’ of these Appalachian Mountains. Their music is equal parts Gram Parsons and Bill Monroe. At the center of it all is Blake Christiana, the band’s singer, principal songwriter, and guitarist. I caught up with Blake to chat about the band’s upcoming appearance at Rooster Walk, outrageous demands in the band’s rider, and wet dreams.Yep. You read that right.BRO – Yarn is the only band playing two nights this weekend. What kind of dirt do you have on the Rooster Walk guys?BC – Even if I did have the dirt, I would never share it. Their secrets are safe with me. They’ve just been so damned supportive of Yarn. I love those guys so very much. We are working on something together for 2015, and I really hope we can get it off the ground. It’s going to be fun, so stay tuned!BRO – This a return trip to Rooster Walk for you guys. Fondest memory of your first go ‘round?BC – Our Sunday night set was amazing. I particularly remember playing “When The Summer Ends” and getting to the sing along part. I would bet ninety percent of the audience had no idea who we were, but they were singing “Glory, glory, hallelujah” about as loud as any group of people could. It was a moment.BRO – What band at Rooster Walk are you most excited to see?BC – James Justin, of course. He’s my boy and I love everything he does. Stephen Wrembel, Tim O’Brien and Darrell Scott, and Kings of Belmont. It’s a great line up. The entire weekend is a musical wet dream. Just hurry up, May 22nd . . . . I’m ready.BRO – Tell me a bit about your collection of acoustic tunes, Shine The Light On.BC – It’s all about the songs. I just wanted to release something very raw, like our first two records, and hopefully people enjoy it and can relate to it a little bit. It’s time for the next one.BRO – If you could add one outrageous item to your rider and demand the Rooster Walk guy comply, what would it be?BC – There’s a doctor in Las Vegas who parks his medical truck on the strip and sells IV drips of this vitamin cocktail that pretty much cures a hangover within an hour. I want that.You can catch Blake Christiana and the rest of Yarn at Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival on Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday at 10:00 p.m.If you’d like to make it out for Yarn’s sets – along with everything else going on between Friday and Sunday of this weekend’s Rooster Walk – take a shot at our trivia question below. The Rooster Walk folks are letting us give away a weekend pass (Friday thru Sunday) with a camping permit!Email your answer to the trivia question below to [email protected] A winner of the passes and camping permit will be chosen from all correct answers received by noon tomorrow – Thursday, May 22.Also, be sure to surf over to www.roosterwalk.com for more information on the line up, set times, and all around good fun going on at this weekend’s festival.Question . . . .

Maluku administration approves land plot for Masela gas project harbor

first_img“We’re continuing to hold discussions related to land acquisition and preparing local workforces,” said Murad in a statement last week on March 9, adding that the plant was expected to begin construction in 2021.Read also: PLN, Pupuk Indonesia to buy LNG from Masela plantAbadi is one of two LNG facilities being developed in Indonesia. The other facility is British Petroleum’s (BP) Tangguh Train 3 plant in West Papua. The two facilities, once operational, are expected to double Indonesia’s LNG production capacity to 33.1 million tons each year to increase its global exports of the commodity. The development of a long-stalled, nationally strategic gas project in the offshore Masela Block has taken a step forward as the Maluku governor has allocated 27 hectares of land for the project’s harbor.Maluku Governor Murad Ismail issued on Feb. 14 letter No. 96/2020, which allocated a small plot of land on Nustual Island for the development of the harbor to be used to move items related to the establishment of the Abadi Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant in the Masela Block. In a follow-up announcement received by The Jakarta Post on Sunday, the provincial administration said that acquiring the land – parts of which are currently owned by two different individuals – would take about eight months.The policeman-turned-governor previously gave the plant’s operator, Japanese oil company Inpex Corp, a recommendation for between 900 Ha and 1,000 Ha of land on a separate island to develop the plant itself. The Upstream Oil and Gas Special Regulatory Taskforce (SKK Migas), which spearheads the government’s efforts on upstream gas-related matters, expects higher LNG exports to help offset Indonesia’s growing oil imports, which are a main contributor to the country’s trade deficit.Oil and gas imports reached US$1.75 billion in February, up 10.7 percent from the same month last year, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) data shows.Despite being listed as a nationally strategic project, the Abadi LNG plant’s development has been delayed for 18 years due to a disagreement between Inpex and Indonesia over the block’s development plan, including whether the LNG plant would be built onshore or offshore.Locals have also resisted the project. The Maluku People’s Forum (Formama) told reporters in Jakarta in December of last year that members were unsatisfied with the project’s contribution to local residents’ welfare, as reported by Tribunnews.com. Contrary to Murad’s expectations, Japan’s Inpex expects to begin plant construction in early 2023 and have the facility operational by 2027, when it expects to produce 9.5 million metric tons of LNG per annum (mtpa).Read also: Construction of Abadi LNG facilities to contribute Rp 73 trillion to economyInpex Masela corporate communications manager Moch N Kurniawan said the company would continually engage stakeholders to ensure “we can execute the Abadi LNG project as per the plan of development agreed upon with the Indonesian government”.SKK Migas deputy of operations Julius Wiratno added in a statement on Monday that developers were facing a slight delay due to the novel coronavirus epidemic. They had to clean survey equipment to ensure employees were not affected by the virus.“We need about a month to disinfect survey equipment, particularly the equipment that comes from countries infected by COVID-19,” he said.Julius added that Inpex was currently working on the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) plans for the project.Topics :last_img read more

DNV GL to Provide Project Certification for German North Sea HVDC Platforms

first_imgDNV GL and TenneT have signed a four-year framework agreement covering project certification of new high-voltage direct current (HVDC) substations in the German North Sea.The transmission system operator awarded DNV GL the contract following an independent EU tendering process.The agreement includes the certification of the planned DolWin5 converter platform which features a grid connection concept for wind farms that could dramatically reduce costs for the offshore wind industry, DNV GL said.The platform features an innovative connection concept to link, for example, the “Borkum Riffgrund West I and II” and “Northern Energy OWP West” wind farms to an offshore HVDC converter next to the wind farms. The DolWin5 concept connects the wind turbines directly to the offshore platform via 66kV cables.This removes the need for separate substations for each wind farm and the 155kV cables previously used to connect the wind farm substation to the converter platform leading to huge cost savings, according to DNV GL. The platform is planned to start operations in 2024.Tim Meyerjürgens, COO of TenneT, said: “This connection concept leads to an enormous cost reduction for the wind farms and the grid connection. With the 66-kV direct connection, we have developed a new generation of cost-efficient offshore grid connections for the German North Sea that will make an important contribution to the transformation of energy systems”.Project certification will be performed according to the BSH Standard Design, in order to verify compliance with requirements of the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH).“With the framework agreement DNV GL and TenneT are partnering in qualifying this new connection technology in Germany,” said Kim Mørk, Executive Vice President for Renewables Certification at DNV GL.”We are already involved in over 80% of German offshore wind projects and are committed to helping the global offshore wind industry to verify new products and technologies that improve the cost effectiveness of wind power and enable the clean energy transition. To this end, we continue to write and define new standards to enable the certification of new technologies.”last_img read more

Families struggling as costs climb

first_imgOtago Daily Times 29 November 2013Families are struggling to keep up with bill payments as everyday expenses continue to rise, a budgeting service says.A Statistics New Zealand survey shows average weekly household spending has increased by more than $90 over the past three years, to $1111.That’s been driven by significant increases in the cost of food, transport, housing and household utilities like gas and electricity.Aucklanders are spending the most, an average of $1253 a week, and spend significantly more on housing, transport and food than residents elsewhere in the country.The Household Economic Survey showed housing costs and utilities were the biggest household costs at $272, making up about a quarter of household bills on average.Food costs made up one-fifth of expenses, costing $192 a week on average, up from $177 three years ago.Darryl Evans, CEO of the Mangere Budgeting Service, said clients were spending a large portion of their income on rent, with very little left for food.http://www.odt.co.nz/news/national/283364/families-struggling-costs-climblast_img read more

Bulldogs Blank Pirates

first_imgThe Batesville Bulldogs traveled for an away game to face the Greensburg Pirates winning 7-0.The Bulldogs came into the match determined to win by working together as a unit and maintaining possession. The first goal came from Johnathan Lynch crossing a ball into Miles Bowser for a header directly down into the back of the net. Next, Miles found Calvin Sherwood with space for a driven ball from deep outside the 18 into the goal. Miles Bowser stole the ball from the opponent in the midfield and played a nice through ball to Michael Ripperger, who nicely tapped it outside of the keepers reach. The first half ended 3-0 with the Bulldogs controlling the ball and defending the Pirates.Second half started, and minutes in, there was a dropkick which was won by Michael Ripperger, who dribbled up and passed through to Miles Bowser for a goal. Similar to a previous goal, Johnathan Lynch once again crossed the ball into Miles Bowser for his hat trick. Later, Ian Powers crossed a ball driven in and it deflected off of a defender into an own goal. Minutes remaining, Daniel Gutzwiller passed to Ian Powers for a one touch shot past the keeper. The game ended 7-0 shutout for the Bulldogs.Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Kyle Hartenman.Heading into their third game in three days, the Greensburg Pirates hosted the Batesville Bulldogs and fell 7-0 on senior night.The Pirates were visibly tired and got off to their slowest start of the season, allowing 3 goals in the game’s first 10 minutes. From there, the Pirates found their footing and held tough for the rest of the half, not allowing many shots to finish the first 40 minutes. Fatigue started to set in for half number 2 as Batesville found the back of the net four more times to push the lead to 7-0.

Hammond Motorsports has new awards for IMCA Modified, Northern SportMod specials

first_imgDeWITT, Iowa – A company that will ship to all 50 states and eight foreign countries looks to build its customer base even more with a new IMCA awards program.Hammond Motorsports of DeWitt, Iowa, gives $75 product certificates, good toward the purchase of a set of chassis set-up plates, to top five finishers at each of 45 IMCA Modified and Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod special events.The custom chassis parts and shock manufacturer is owned by veteran Modified driver Dave Hammond, who relocated the business from North Carolina to his home state in 2009.“I’ve been involved with the IMCA Modified division since 1983 when I started building chassis,” said the second-generation driver. “IMCA is the largest sanctioning body and our new program with them is one way I’m looking to build my customer numbers in IMCA. We’ve wanted to step in and get our feet wet with IMCA.”Hammond started the business in the mid-1980s. More than a few fans followed his IMCA Modified Firecracker Tour exploits in 2004 and he was a Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational candidate the next year.“When I design a product, I test it personally. I put it in my own car before I put it in anybody else’s,” he said. “We do a tremendous amount of business now in the Western United States and Canada. I want to work more with chassis manufacturers and expand more into the IMCA market.”A portable pull-down rig Hammond designed will be new to the HMS product line. That will be on display at PRI in December.Hammond product certificates are mailed within a week after race results are received at the IMCA home office.“Dave Hammond is an innovator and has great new products for IMCA racers,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “We’re excited about this new program and are confident we’ll build a relationship for years to come. “More information is available by calling 563 659-1153 and at the www.hammondmotorsports.com website.last_img read more

World silver for Ireland’s Quigley

first_imgIreland’s Jason Quigley had to settle for a silver medal after losing his middleweight final in the World Championships in Almaty on Saturday. Quigley was knocked down in the first round and dropped a unanimous decision to busy home Kazakh boxer Zhanibek Alimkhanuly. The Donegal 22-year-old was the first Irish fighter to reach a men’s world final and the second to claim a medal in Almaty with light-heavyweight Joe Ward taking bronze. Quigley said: “It’s just a shame I couldn’t take it a step further. I would have loved to take home gold. I knew before I got in the ring that he was a good lad. “I know when I go away and look at things I’ll be happy with how I went. If anyone had told me beforehand I would have won a medal, I would have taken their arms off.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Murray cool ahead of Italy clash

first_img The 25-year-old said he is equally happy partnering Leinster’s Ian Madigan or club-mate Ian Keatley, the two fly-halves vying to start in Rome while Sexton completes his 12-week concussion lay-off. “There’s no more pressure than usual,” said Murray of conducting Ireland’s tempo in Sexton’s absence. “Other people might say there is but I don’t see that. “It’s come up with Munster before that there might be a bit more pressure on me but I just try and play my own game, try and play well and if I play well hopefully all that stuff, that pressure and responsibility, looks after itself. “The two lads, the two Ians who are going for the 10 spot this weekend, have been in and out of the team in training. “They have been getting their reps in and doing real well and I have no issue with whoever gets picked. ” Forwards coach Simon Easterby confirmed fit-again flanker Sean O’Brien is “in the mix” for selection following his strong showing for Ireland Wolfhounds on Friday night. The abrasive Leinster back-rower has endured two reconstructions on the same shoulder in 14 months, but is now primed for his first Test action since November 2013. The British and Irish Lions scrum-half is “through that first contact fear” after a month out with neck trouble, and should start against the Azzurri in Rome. The sharp tactician shoulders the brunt of the playmaking duties in a French-style half-back set-up at Munster, but does not expect a repeat at Test level this weekend. “Sean was good on Friday night, in his own assessment he blew up a little bit and you would do,” said Easterby. “He’s a long time out of the game but we all saw what he can be, the competitiveness of the man. “Certainly having him in the mix for selection is a real positive, especially after losing Chris Henry and Rhys Ruddock after the autumn. “Obviously Rhys broke his arm and Chris has had his illness, so we’ve had a few players step through, but having Sean come back to full fitness and back into the squad and in the mix is great to have him as a selection option.” Jamie Heaslip remained a fitness doubt on Tuesday with shoulder trouble, but Easterby said the Leinster number eight still has time to prove his fitness. “Players might not train until a Tuesday, that’s not unusual,” said Easterby. “You have to adapt and give players opportunity, without it affecting preparation.” Boss Joe Schmidt will be relieved to have frontline nine Murray fit to start in Rome, with the increasingly-poised half-back crucial to Ireland’s tactical nous. Murray’s ability to run a game in the manner of a fly-half from the nine berth could prove priceless at the Stadio Olimpico, especially in the absence of Racing Metro 10 Sexton. Murray said he has eased comfortably back into confrontational training, claiming there is “no hassle” now over the disc problem that has blighted his last month. “I just over-extended my neck against Zebre about a month ago,” said Murray. “I maybe could have got back for the two European games, but the specialists and doctors advised against it. “I’m feeling good and fit to play now. “It was a disc problem in my neck. It’s gone now. There is no hassle over it. “I just ran into a player’s chest and squashed myself. It wasn’t the smartest idea – I won’t be doing that again! “I have done all my contact. I have done bag work, tackled a few of the lads and feel good. I’ve gotten through that first contact fear if you want to call it that.” Press Association Conor Murray insists Johnny Sexton’s absence will not heap extra pressure on him to spearhead Ireland’s attack in Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations opener in Italy.last_img read more

Clinical ATK punish wasteful Mumbai City

first_imgMumbai: ATK brought Mumbai City FC’s six-game unbeaten run to an end after a 2-0 win at the Mumbai Football Arena here on Saturday.First-half goals from Pronay Halder (29’) and Michael Soosairaj (43’) were enough as Mumbai City were left to rue the chances they missed in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL).The win sees ATK draw level on points (21) at the top of the table with FC Goa while Mumbai City is placed fourth (16).A frantic start to the match saw both goalkeepers tested early in the game. Mumbai custodian Amrinder Singh had to get down smartly to keep out a long-ranger from Jayesh Rane in the third minute, while Diego Carlos stung ATK goalkeeper Arindam Bhattacharya’s palms with a good effort from inside the box minutes later.Mumbai continued to trouble the ATK defense as the game wore on with Mohammed Larbi and Amine Chermiti going close in quick succession. The pick of the chances, though, went to Modou Sougou after Carlos fed Chermiti down the left. The Moroccan’s cutback from the byline was sent straight at Arindam by Sougou.ATK saw off that spell of pressure and started to make inroads of their own. Roy Krishna shot agonizingly wide in the 22nd minute after a lovely reverse pass from Rane found him in space inside the box.ATK was not to be denied in the 29th minute when Javier Hernandez and Roy Krishna combined delightfully to send David Williams into the penalty box. The Australian had the presence of mind to pick out an onrushing Pronay Halder who slotted it into the net.The celebrations, though, were soured by an injury that Halder picked up, with Antonio Habas forced to send in Michael Soosairaj in place of the goalscorer. That move paid off handsomely in the 43rd minute when Soosairaj found himself in possession down the left-wing. He went on to place a sensational curler into the far corner to double ATK’s advantage at the break.A stung Mumbai City showed greater urgency in the second half as they sought a way back into the game. As Jorge Costa’s men mounted pressure on ATK’s defense, the likes of Roy Krishna and Soosairaj were finding spaces to run too.One such move saw Soosairaj twist and turn Pratik Chaudhury, before picking out Krishna at the near post. But his first-time volley from close range rattled back of the crossbar.Mumbai, at the other end, had no luck either. Sougou did find the back of the net in the 68th minute but the effort was chalked out for offside. The Islanders continued to pepper the ATK goal with attempts but saw chances go begging, thanks to a combination of last-ditch defending and poor finishing. Chermiti was denied in the 74th minute after a desperate goal-line clearance following a scramble inside the box.Mumbai continued to pour forward desperately but lady luck did not shine on them. Sougou thought he had a goal in the 82nd minute when Arindam spilled a ball and he turned it in, but the referee disallowed it for a foul on the goalkeeper. Minutes later, Serge Kevyn headed wide from point-blank range.Towards the end, Sougou hit the woodwork, as well as Mumbai, were left to ponder the chances they wasted.

Wazeer Dhanraj–veteran umpire still taking command of the game in the middle

first_imgBy Elroy Stephney‘BEING knowledgeable of the laws whilst looking at the game makes it more enjoyable’ was how the veteran 55- year-old Essequibian, Wazeer Dhanraj described his love and passion for umpiring.It all began in 1994 when he was encouraged to join the Essequibo Umpiring and Scorers Association despite not having any experience in the field at the time. While he confessed to playing cricket primarily during his schooling career, he was unknown around the cricketing circle.His unforgettable journey became even more exciting however, when in 1995 he topped the country at the Preliminary Umpiring exams, gaining 78 marks, while the following year he was successfully in his final written exams.He eventually became a fully qualified Umpire after passing his oral and practical examinations soon after, and then officially commenced his career.The thoughtful and affable ‘countryman’ is revered for memorising the cricketing laws, as he can unhesitatingly pronounce on any of the laws governing cricket, including the recently revised laws too. He acknowledged having regretted not being into Umpiring much earlier since he would have had a better chance of officiating at the national level, given that he would have been much younger.However, he was proud of his achievements, including officiating in inter-county matches at the under-15 and under-19 levels, as well as on the local scene where he still commands respect on the field. He was also privileged to have had the opportunity to witness most of Guyana’s talented cricketers in action.Given his organisational skills and personality, Dhanraj also functions in other capacities, including being Secretary of the Essequibo Cricket Board and the Essequibo Coast/Scorers Association, as well as being a representative on the Guyana Cricket Board. He also previously served as Manager of the Essequibo Senior Inter-County squad; key responsibilities that would have served to enhance his stature in the game.Expressing no regrets at being an Umpire, Dhanraj stated that he will do it all over again since he remains committed and motivated towards improving the general standard of cricket through his action in the middle.In this regard, the multi-talented and soft-spoken former Administrator is now intimately involved in tutoring prospective Umpires whom he is encouraging to take the profession seriously, since it is rewarding according to him. The veteran Umpire also warned of the existing indiscipline of players which he said is discouraging persons from becoming Umpires.However, he was quite supportive of the revised laws that would have been implemented recently which gives Umpires more authority to act. In Essequibo, according to Dhanraj, Umpiring is the last option in the sport, since there are very few qualified Umpires.He is therefore encouraging persons, especially those who would have already played the game, to show an interest by registering with the Association in order to obtain theoretical as well as practical knowledge of the game. The well admired Umpire can be seen on most Sundays standing in the middle and being in command, without much difficulty.Though in the twighlight of his career, he still displays a deep passion for his profession and posited determination, love for the sport and loyalty as primary incentives towards his longevity in the game. He also credited his colleagues, including Deonarine Sewnarine, Dasroy Balgobin, Deva Dass, Kayman Sankar Group of Companies and the Guyana Umpires’ Council as being the driving force behind his accomplishments.While he still enjoys raising his index finger whilst making a legitimate decision, the firm and resilient Dhanraj insists that Umpires must at all times uphold the rule of law, be impartial and conduct the game in the most sportsmanlike fashion.The astute and firm Wazeer Dhanraj is still upholding those sacred principles to date, after 23 years as a dedicated Umpire.last_img read more

‘Right process followed’ – ICC defends Dharmasena’s overthrows call

first_imgBy Nagraj GollapudiTHE International Cricket Council (ICC) has come out in support of umpire Kumar Dharmasena for his controversial awarding of six overthrows, instead of five, to England in the World Cup final on July 14 at Lord’s. In their first public statement of the incident, the governing body insisted the ‘right process’ was followed.The overthrow, which allowed England to resuscitate the chase from what had seemed a very difficult position a ball earlier – when they needed nine off three deliveries – resulted in six runs after the balls skimmed off Ben Stokes’ bat to the third man boundary after he had dived to complete his second run.Dharmasena said the decision was a collective one as he had consulted his on-field partner Marais Erasmus, a conversation that was audible to the rest of the match officials.“They (on-field umpires) had to make a judgement call on the day as to whether the batsmen had crossed when the throw was released,” ICC’s general manager of cricket Geoff Allardice told ESPNcricinfo in a wide-ranging interview. “After everything that went on during that delivery, they got together over their comms system and made their decision. They certainly followed the right process when making the decision.”While there is no time limit for match officials to ascertain their decisions, Allardice said the playing conditions did not allow the third umpire or match referee, both of whom had access to the TV, to intervene.“They were aware of the law when they made the judgment about whether the batsmen had crossed or not at the time,” he said. “The playing conditions don’t allow them to refer to such a decision to a third umpire. The match referee cannot intervene when the umpires on the field have to make a judgement call like that.”He also said the entire final would be “considered” by the ICC’s Cricket Committee, led by former India captain Anil Kumble. However, the committee is not scheduled to meet until the first quarter of 2020.Allardice also emphatically stated the importance of having a winner, when asked if there were questions raised about a shared World Cup, at the ICC Annual Conference in London last week.“The consistent view has been that the World Cup final needs a winner and a Super Over was in the playing conditions to decide a tied Final in each of the last three World Cups (2011, 2015 and 2019).” COUNTDOWN CLOCK TO COMBAT SLOW OVER-RATESThe Cricket Committee has also given the nod to a stop clock to combat slow over-rates in limited-overs cricket. Allardice said this will be trialled over the next nine months in select matches to judge its effectiveness.“In a T20 innings, the clock would start at 85 minutes when the first ball is bowled, and countdown to zero. The aim is that players, umpires and fans will know that when the clock gets to zero the bowling team should have started the last over. If there is a delay or interruption in the match due to an injury or a DRS review then the umpire will push a button on a timer that adds time back onto clock.” (ESPN Cricinfo)last_img read more

Todd Sitrin – EA Competitive Gaming – Our games should be as fun to…

first_imgTodd Sitrin, EATodd Sitrin is the SVP and GM of the EA Competitive Gaming Division. An advisor to the upcoming Esports BAR (February 12-14 2018), the ‘World’s Esports Business Arena’ in Cannes of which we’re a Key Content Partner, we caught up with him to discuss this, as well as plans for the new seasons for both FIFA 18 and Madden NFL 18. Esports Insider: The format for FIFA esports’ main competition has been changed for this coming season, with the introduction of the FIFA eWorld Cup. What was the thinking behind this?Todd Sitrin: We fostered incredible competition with the FIFA 17 Ultimate Team Championship Series last year as millions competed in pursuit of the FIFA Interactive World Cup. It was a landmark achievement for a competitive gaming ecosystem in its first year.“Unifying all football competitions under one global series was key to our strategy”Entering year two, it is our top priority to exponentially expand the global competitive ecosystem to reach even more players. Unifying all football competitions under one global series was key to our strategy.  Through our intrinsic partnership with FIFA the organization, the EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Global Series will enable millions to join The Road to the eWorld Cup. This global ecosystem is comparable in scale to the top MOBAs in esports and it is the logical next step for moving competitive FIFA into the mainstream. Considering this is a World Cup year, the time to rapidly accelerate is now.  ESI: Can you reveal any more about the ‘league partner’ and qualifying competitions, and the licensed qualifying competitions, or when can we expect to learn more about these?Todd: One outcome of our last year’s competitive series is that we received a tremendous number of requests from football leagues and other 3rd parties to partner on FIFA 18 tournaments this year. Partners want to get in early on the fast-growing FIFA competitive gaming ecosystem and to be part of the world’s most popular sport.  We will be announcing the official league partner competitions as well as 3rd party competitions that feed into the global EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Global Series very soon.ESI: Away from FIFA, and over to Madden. With NBA 2K making a big splash with its inaugural league and reportedly lots of plans for brand activations, how will you be competing with the Madden 18 Championship Series?Todd: Firstly, we’re looking forward to seeing the NBA 2K eLeague. Success across the industry is beneficial for all players.“We received a tremendous number of requests from football leagues and other 3rd parties to partner on FIFA 18 tournaments this year”In August we announced the first-ever Madden NFL 18 Club Championship in close partnership with the NFL. This landmark competitive gaming event is underway now and involves the entire NFL – all 32 team – as millions compete to be the official representative of their favorite club.No traditional North American sports league has ever committed all franchises to competitive gaming in this capacity and if you’re a NFL fan, you now have a new way to root for, support and connect with your favorite team. The Madden NFL 18 Club Championship is poised to quickly grow the community by connecting NFL fans to Madden through this uniquely engaging experience.  After months of competition to locate the official 32 representatives, the Madden NFL Club Championship will pit the players, one per team, against each other at the NFL Pro Bowl in Orlando this January. From there, the final four will advance to compete at the Super Bowl in Minneapolis – there, one will lead their favorite NFL team to a championship through Madden NFL.ESI: With the Olympics being mentioned in connection with esports a lot lately, what are your thoughts here? After all sports simulation games are perhaps a more natural fit for the IOC…Todd: The mere fact that we are talking about the Olympics and competitive gaming is a great sign of how far the industry has come.“We’re watching closely and would love to see competitive gaming featured at the Olympics”We’re watching closely and would love to see competitive gaming featured at the Olympics. We are also heavily intrigued by the medal competitions at the 2022 Asian Games and believe global competitions on the world stage moves the industry forward.ESI: Have things changed much at EA Sports since Peter Moore’s departure? What are the objectives for the remainder of 2018?Todd: Our vision has remained since we founded the EA Competitive Gaming Division (CGD) in December 2015. That vision is to ‘Make Stars of All Our Players’ by creating a global ecosystem of competitive gaming accessible to as many players as possible.“For spectators, we are focused on building a more watchable broadcast that more deeply engages viewers. Our games should be as fun to watch as they are to play”In 2018 we accelerate our efforts to deliver on this vision.  We want to further our engagement with both game players and spectators.  This means turning more people into game players and having them play our games longer. For spectators, we are focused on building a more watchable broadcast that more deeply engages viewers.  Our games should be as fun to watch as they are to play.  And we want to get that broadcast in front of as many people as we can via both digital and linear TV distribution deals.  2018 will also be the year we introduce our Battlefield Competitive Gaming, our first non-sports competitive product.ESI: You’re on the board of advisors for the Esports BAR which is stepping it up a gear for its events in 2018. Can you tell us why you’re involved and what you’re looking forward to at the February Cannes edition?Todd: The esports industry is rapidly expanding with new entrants joining every few months.“The Esports BAR is a catalyst to creating these crucial partnerships”Esports will grow faster through partnerships.  The Esports BAR is a catalyst to creating these crucial partnerships.  I joined the board of advisors because I’m committed to helping the industry grow.  In February, I’m most excited to meet new companies and explore ways in which we can partner to bring esports to a mass audience.Disclaimer: Esports Insider is a Key Content Partner of the Esports BAR Canneslast_img read more

A look at the best among the six independent teams:Independent college football team rankings1. Notre Dame2. Army3. BYU4. Liberty5. New Mexico State6. UMassNotre Dame has a much tougher schedule this season, but Kelly has done an impressive job with the program-wide makeover the last two seasons. The Irish are 22-4 in that stretch, one game better than Army’s 21-5 mark. Those are the two best bets to crack the New Year’s Day Six this season. It’s tough to pick which school will have the better record.Biggest independent games in 2019Army at Michigan (Sept. 7). The Black Knights took Oklahoma to the limit in 2018, and they’ll get a noon kickoff at the Big House to test Don Brown’s defense. A win here would vault Army into the New Year’s Day Six discussion.BYU at Tennessee (Sept. 7). The Cougars also play Utah, USC and Washington in September, but an upset in Neyland Stadium against an SEC opponent would get the most attention.Notre Dame at Georgia (Sept. 21). This game shaped both teams’ seasons in 2017. It will be the same case in Athens in a great quarterback matchup between Ian Book and Jake Fromm.Notre Dame at Michigan (Oct. 26). It’s an odd place on the schedule for one of the game’s classic rivalries, but the Irish catch the Wolverines coming off a trip to Penn State the previous week. Notre Dame hasn’t won at Michigan since 2005.Independent Heisman hopefulsIan Book, Notre Dame. The Irish have not had a Heisman winner since 1987, but Book could have a chance over a full season. He completed 68.2 percent of his passes over 10 games and will add to last year’s yardage and touchdown totals. The big-game spotlight won’t be an issue here.Kelvin Hopkins Jr., Army. The Black Knights haven’t had a Heisman winner since 1958, but Hopkins should pile up the statistics as the quarterback of an option offense. Hopkins was a 1,000/1,000 player last year. Keep in mind that Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds finished fifth in the Heisman voting in 2015.Zach Wilson, QB, BYU. Wilson had a brilliant performance in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl by finishing 18 of 18 for 317 yards and four touchdowns. That continued development against the rough September schedule will be key for the Cougars.MORE: Ranking coaches 1-130 for 2019 seasonIndependent stat that mattersNotre Dame, Army and BYU will get the most attention of the independents, and to keep that attention you must play ranked opponents. The Irish are 7-4 against ranked teams the last two years. BYU is 1-4 and Army is 0-2. Given those big September matchups we outlined for all three teams, they need to be on top of their games. Independents’ biggest question: Notre Dame or Army in NY6?That’s a difficult question. If the Black Knights upset Michigan, then there’s a decent chance they could have a 13-0 record at season’s end. The Irish face Georgia, Michigan and Stanford on the road, along with their rivalry with USC and five-game arrangement with the ACC.Both teams have a good chance to get to double-digit victories, but what about crashing the New Year’s Day Six?Independent predictions for 2019Army will make the Wolverines nervous in the second half at the Big House, but without that upset they won’t make the New Year’s Day Six. Notre Dame will lose at Georgia and Michigan but still make the New Year’s Day Six with a 10-2 season. BYU and Liberty also make bowl games, and Hugh Freeze’s name will get tossed around for Power 5 jobs again.last_img read more

Week 15 NFL DFS Picks: Best value players, sleepers for FanDuel, DraftKings daily fantasy football lineups

first_imgDrew Brees and Jameis Winston were the two highest-scoring players on DraftKings in Week 14, and 12 more scored 30-plus points in what was a monster DFS slate. While it’s difficult to project if a similar range of high outcomes will occur in daily fantasy this week, there are a number of solid value options available, all of which would allow you to spend up on some studs. Let’s check out some Week 15 values. But before we break down top Week 15 value plays, please note that the picks and analysis below are provided by the industry-leading DFS experts at RotoQL Find out why 100,000 DFS players trust RotoQL to build lineups. Optimize, find value plays, and increase your chances of cashing today!  WEEK 15 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPNFL DFS Picks Week 15: QB sleepers, valuesKyler Murray: Cardinals vs. Browns (DraftKings $5,600 | FanDuel $7,600)Since Murray hasn’t eclipsed the 200-yard passing mark in any of his last three starts, he will most likely be extremely low-owned this week. Over that span, his offensive line has let him down (he’s taken 15 sacks), and he’s thrown four interceptions. However, in this price range on both sites, Murray’s upside (due to the rushing ability he’s flashed a few times this year) makes him a solid GPP target in Week 15. Gardner Minshew: Jaguars at Raiders (DraftKings $5,500 | FanDuel $6,900)Minshew went 24-for-37 for just 162 yards and a touchdown in last week’s start, but added 31 yards on the ground in a lopsided loss. The Raiders have allowed 34, 40 and 42 points to the Jets, Chiefs and Titans in consecutive games, and Minshew Mania might be in store once again on Sunday. It’s also worth mentioning that Jacksonville’s defense has been torched in recent weeks, which only inflates Minshew’s fantasy upside.David Blough: Lions vs. Buccaneers (DraftKings $5,200 | FanDuel $7,300)Blough only comes into play if Matthew Stafford (hip/back) sits again. The Bucs have allowed 278.8 passing yards per game (2nd-most), and even though the Lions just lost Marvin Jones Jr. (ankle) to the IR, Tampa Bay’s pass funnel defense hasn’t posed much of a risk to opposing quarterbacks all season long.WEEK 15 NON-PPR RANKINGS: Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWeek 15 DraftKings, FanDuel Picks: RB sleepers, valuesRaheem Mostert: 49ers vs. Falcons (DraftKings: $5,200 | FanDuel: $7,500)In Week 13, Mostert saw 73.7 percent of the running back snaps and broke out against the Ravens. Last week, as part of a healthy three-headed monster with Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida, Mostert saw an impressive 59.7 percent of the snaps and might have earned himself lead-back duties due to his production. He took 10 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown and added two catches for 40 yards and another score in last week’s shootout win over the Saints. On the year, he’s averaging an insane 6.0 yards per carry (on 102 attempts) and 13.3 yards per catch, both of which convey his explosiveness. While he’s slightly priced up on FanDuel, he’s one of the best DraftKings values of the week.Patrick Laird: Dolphins at Giants (DraftKings $4,500 | FanDuel $5,500)Other than becoming a viral sensation on Twitter, Laird’s appealing at his price tag due to the volume he’s been seeing. He rushed for 48 yards on 15 carries against the Jets last week and also caught four of five targets for 38 more yards. The week before, he rushed for a touchdown and caught four of five targets for 43 yards. While Laird isn’t the most gifted runner between the tackles, his chemistry with Ryan Fitzpatrick has been clear. Laird played 81.9 percent of the snaps against the Jets and should see a similar rate against the Giants this week.Dion Lewis: Titans vs. Texans (DraftKings $3,700 | FanDuel $4,700)With Derrick Henry (hamstring) slightly banged up, there’s a chance that Lewis could see additional work this week against the Texans. While Lewis hasn’t found the end zone yet this season and has only averaged 3.5 yards per rush and 5.8 yards per reception, Houston’s defense was annihilated by Patriots running back James White a couple weeks ago. White primarily assumes a passing-down role, and there’s a chance former Patriot and current Titans coach Mike Vrabel and company check out that film and find an edge. FanDuel, DraftKings Picks Week 15: WR sleepers, valuesGreg Ward: Eagles at Redskins (DraftKings $3,000 | FanDuel $4,900)Due to numerous injuries at the position, Ward could be one of a few healthy Eagles receivers that can suit up against the Redskins. Although he hauled in just four of nine targets on Monday Night Football, that volume is a sight for sore eyes on DraftKings, where he’s the minimum price. While it’ll be important to pay attention to the injury news throughout the week, Ward will be a stellar target if he’s projected to be a piece of Philadelphia’s passing game. JJ Arceda-Whiteside: Eagles at Redskins (DraftKings $3,300 | FanDuel $5,500)The same goes for Arceda-Whiteside. While he only had two catches on three targets for 29 yards on Monday, he could be vaulted into a starting role against Washington. If you recall, the former Stanford standout was a preseason monster. At this price tag, especially on DraftKings, he can easily pay off his salary if he’s involved in the offense. Once again, monitoring the health of the other wideouts is necessary throughout the week. Corey Davis: Titans vs. Texans (DraftKings $3,800 | FanDuel $5,000)Limiting Derrick Henry has been no easy task for opposing defenses this season. However, it appears that the Texans are going to sell out in an attempt to do so. Per USA TODAY, Bill O’Brien indicated that their defense is going to attempt to “build a wall” in front of Henry and force Ryan Tannehill to beat them through the air. Based on last week’s performance, A.J. Brown will be a popular target from this game, but Davis is a stellar GPP play with upside who can pay off his salary with one long touchdown catch.WEEK 15 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWeek 15 NFL DFS Picks: TE sleepers, valuesO.J. Howard: Buccaneers at Lions (DraftKings $3,500 | FanDuel $5,700)While Howard’s involvement in Tampa Bay’s offense hasn’t been consistent this season, he’s had nine catches on 11 targets for 134 yards over his last two weeks and caught a 25-yard pass and 33-yard pass in that span, which indicates that he’s catching Jameis Winston’s eye. Winston is going to sling the rock every week and Howard is due for his first touchdown since November 10th. Mike Evans’ injury could also create more opportunity for Howard.Logan Thomas: Lions vs. Buccaneers (DraftKings $2,600 | FanDuel $4,700)Last week, with T.J. Hockenson out, the Lions decided to split snaps between Jesse James and Logan Thomas at the tight end position. James started the game and saw 38 snaps and just two targets while Thomas saw 40 snaps and received four targets from David Blough. Although that turned into just two catches for 21 yards, it’s worth mentioning that Thomas caught a touchdown pass the week before and might see additional looks due to the fact that Marvin Jones Jr. was just placed on the IR. At this point of the season and out of playoff contention, perhaps Detroit elects to give Thomas a more extended look. BetQL, RotoQL’s sister product, simplifies the research process for sports bettors by equipping them with real-time line movements, value bets of the day and meaningful team trends. Check it out here!MORE WEEK 15 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderWeek 15 NFL DFS values: D/ST sleepersNew York D/ST: Giants vs. Dolphins (DraftKings $2,700 | FanDuel $3,900) They’re facing the Dolphins. End of analysis. Washington D/ST: Redskins vs. Eagles (DraftKings $2,600 | FanDuel $3,500)If Philadelphia’s main wide receivers are all slated to miss this game, Carson Wentz might be in store for a difficult time finding open targets. Washington has been awful this season, but their defense hasn’t been an issue lately. They’ve allowed 16, 21 and 20 points over their last three contests, the last of which came against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Lambeau Field. You can do a lot worse than rostering them in this spot and at this price considering that rostering any defense is subject to variability.last_img read more

Iowa’s governor says e-cigarette use among teens ‘alarming’

first_imgDES MOINES — Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds says there are dangers associated with “vaping” and she’s discussing policy options with key advisers.“I think it’s alarming what we’re continuing to see and the increase in the number of cases and so we continue to work with the Iowa Department of Public Health to collect the data,” she says.State officials announced last Friday that nearly two dozen Iowans had been diagnosed with a respiratory illness linked to so-called “vaping” with an electronic cigarette. Reynolds says a majority of the illnesses involved vaping products containing THC, a chemical from marijuana.“That’s a significant concern,” Reynolds says. “That’s, you know, illegal.”According to federal officials, nine people have died in the U.S. from the mysterious illness connected to vaping and hundreds have been hospitalized.“The increases that we’re seeing in people using, especially young people, is concerning,” Reynolds says, “to see the growth really in a short time frame.”This week the Republican governor of Massachusetts declared vaping a “public health emergency” and imposed a four-month ban on all vaping products. Also this week, Minnesota’s governor called on his state’s legislature to ban the sale of the flavored pods inserted in “e-cigarettes.” Similar bans are already in effect in New York and Michigan.A federal study found the number of high school seniors who were “vaping” doubled from 2017 to 2018. Preliminary data from this year’s survey indicates one in nine teenagers “vapes” daily.last_img read more

Tusker sends entire technical bench packing

first_img0Shares0000Tusker FC head coach Sam Timbe consults with assistant coach Francis Baraza during a training session at the Ruaraka Grounds in Nairobi on January 3, 2018. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUNAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 22- Eleven-time Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker FC have sent their entire technical bench packing, led by head coach Sam Timbe, after just 11 matches into the new season with immediate former AFC Leopards boss Robert Matano poised for a return to Ruaraka.Though the Tusker FC officials remained coy on the issue, Capital Sport has established that the coaches were informed of the board’s decision on Sunday morning, barely 24 hours after they surprisingly lost 3-1 to Zoo Kericho on Saturday. “It is true that we have all lost our jobs. We were informed of the decision this morning and we have no choice but to oblige. It is how football is sometimes but we will move on and hopefully other opportunities present themselves,” a member of the technical bench who sought anonymity told Capital Sport.Tusker FC Chief Executive Officer Charles Obiny could not confirm nor deny the development.Tusker FC unveiled 10 new signings for the 2018 KPL season.“We will release a comprehensive statement tomorrow morning on that matter,” Obiny said in a brief response.Timbe joined Tusker at the beginning of the season with the heavy task of building up a new team with most of the first team regulars leaving in a massive clear-out at the end of the 2017 season which also claimed coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe.It wasn’t to be a ride worth remembering as Tusker struggled for results and out of 11 outings managed to celebrate victory only twice, a statistic that didn’t go in good taste with the bosses at Tusker’s headquarters in Ruaraka.A troubled season it was as assistant coach Francis Baraza was at one point asked to step aside after being accused of sabotage, but the bridges were finally bridged with the former Chemelil Sugar man reinstated in the team.However, the results didn’t change and just last week, Timbe asked for patience from the Tusker board and fans as he sought to stabilize a ship that was almost wrecking barely halfway through the season.The team will now move in fast to secure a bench ready for Wednesday’s match against Wazito FC at the Camp Toyoyo Ground.AFC Leopards head coach Robert matano shouts instructions to his players during their GOtv Shield semi-final match against Vihiga United on September 24, 2017 at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“Matano had been approached early on in the season when it looked certain that Timbe will not last. They have more or less agreed that he will take over at the club,” a source privy to the ongoings at the club informed Capital Sport.Matano was at the club in 2012 and 2013, guiding them to their league title in his first half season in charge. The tactician was sacked at Ingwe a month ago.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

CROOK FRANCOIS: COURT CASE ADJOURNED AS FRAUDSTER SAYS ‘I’M BROKE’!

first_imgA judge in the North has warned that fraudster Francois de Dietrich must be ready to go to jail if he is found – but his case has been put back because the conman claims he can’t afford a legal defence.The conman faces an 18-month sentence for failing to disclose assets but his appeal was put back yesterday when the court was told the crook doesn’t have any money – despite stealing millions!Donegaldaily unmasked the fraudster six months ago, exposing how he bagged €20M from people in Donegal. Court proceedings launched by the Financial Services Authority led to an injunction banning de Dietrich and his company ETIC Solutions from taking any more cash from victomsThe regulatory body also obtained an initial order freezing more than £20m in assets linked to the businessman.De Dietrich was then held to be in contempt of an order to disclose his financial affairs in full to the FSA.Yesterday the North’s most senior judge Sir Declan Morgan was told that a solicitor for the businessman has been able to receive ‘indirect’ instructions from him. Sir Declan described the information given to him as “very opaque”.However, he agreed to take the case out and have it mentioned again in September.“It seems to us that the liberty of Mr de Dietrich is, at least in theory, at issue in this case,” he said.“Therefore where an issue of funding for legal representation to enable points to be made on his behalf arises we should afford a reasonable opportunity to enable an application for such funding to be obtained.”The judge added: “It remains the position that Mr de Dietrich is subject to the contempt order made by Mr Justice Deeny. “In the event he is discovered it must be expected he will be required to serve the term imposed on him.”CROOK FRANCOIS: COURT CASE ADJOURNED AS FRAUDSTER SAYS ‘I’M BROKE’! was last modified: June 17th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Onduparaka name unsettled Shaban named in 2017/18 squad

first_imgFOOTBALL–Onduparaka have included want-away striker Muhammad Shaban in a 31-man squad released by the Caterpillars a head of the new 2017/2018 league season.While the squad was bursting at the seams with new faces the inclusion of the unsettled striker struck a chord with Caterpillars fans.Shaban’s future at Green Light Stadium diminished into uncertainty following a fall out with the club administration.At the height of the fallout, the club stripped Shaban of captaincy and subsequently appointed Rashid Toha as new skipper with Alex Adriko Gasper, Denis Andama and Gaddafi Muhammad the assistants.Since then, Shaban’s desire to leave the Caterpillars this off-season became a public secret noticeable in various interviews and social media posts where he relayed apparent openness to leave .The club, for their part, rebuffed initial overtures from local clubs and only insisted to do business with suitors abroad.Following unsuccessful trials with South African giants SuperSport United last month, the striker’s chances of leaving Green Light Stadium wore thin, and sources indicate that he had no choice but to stay put.Vipers SC were reportedly monitoring Shaban’s uncertain future with keen interest as they  were desperately seeking alternatives to bolster their striking force.But the cold-shoulder treatment the player received during his first spell with the Kitende-based side returned to shatter the slimmest of hopes  for the deal to crystallise.Champions KCCA were also rumoured to have picked interested in working the striker as replacement for Geoffrey Sserunkuma after the veteran striker went for greener pastures with Zambian outfit Buildco FC.Shaban scored 13 league goals for the Arua-based outfit last season to steer Onduparaka to respectable 5th place finish in their UPL debut season, and despite altercations with his bosses, he was at the heart of everything good the Caterpillars achieved in the season.The released squad 1.

Mavericks Barbers: Tips for a traditional shave at home

first_imgThe male grooming experts at Mavericks Traditional Barbershop Letterkenny talk about the tools and tricks you need to give yourself the best shave:Something the Mavericks have been focusing on lately is to further improve the experience of our Luxury Hot Towel Shave! If we do say so ourselves, it is something every man should experience, we have men who come in every single week for a Luxury Hot Towel Shave. Yes, the finish is second to none, but the experience is what it is all about. It is a half hour of complete relaxation and serenity!So if you what to experience a more traditional shave in your own home what do you need? Not all products or techniques work the same for everyone. Pick virtually any ingredient used and you’ll find some people that love it, and some people that hate it. So experiment, but experiment with good quality products. Spend the money to invest in decent tools. It doesn’t have to be the most expensive…  what’s important is that they are GREAT quality. Razor:- if you want to try the complete traditional experience using a cut-throat razor, then go for it, we recommend it! But please make sure you know what you’re doing, they are dangerous, even just ask your barber for pointers on how to use it, they will only be delighted to talk to you about it (that’s if they know how to use it!)  Brush:- There’s always an argument… natural versus synthetic. You can find great brushes of both types, so this is where you experiment and find what works for you. I personally like synthetic while the rest of the Mavericks like badger and boar hair, it’s just what works for you!Soap:- A traditional shave does not come in a can. Will it work? Sure. But is it the best? Absolutely not. Next, you’ll say ‘€12 for a shaving soap’?! But these things are concentrated and dehydrated and will last 4 -5 times longer than a typical can of foam or gel! Again when it comes to quality, if you get the right one there is no comparison.You can get these products in any good pharmacy, but if you are struggling to find a good range, Mavericks have one of the largest ranges of shaving and beard products in the north-west.

first_imgBottles of the golden liquid are snappedup by a growing number of mead drinkers.(Image: Makana Meadery) It is the hard work of the Cape honey beethat produces the main ingredient forMakana’s popular beverage. (Image: Mashpedia) MEDIA CONTACTS • Garth Cambray  Makana Meadery  +27 46 636 1227 RELATED ARTICLES • Bee fence keeps elephants out • New wine label protects trees • SA develops rooibos flavour wheel • Sudan brews its own beer industry • SAB first with UV purificationChristel JordaanMead – although the name of this wine made from fermented honey may conjure up images of medieval frivolity, this is no longer the case.Biotechnologist Garth Cambray and his team at Makana Meadery are proving that even a 20 000-year-old recipe has a place in today’s modern era.Located in the picturesque city of Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape, Grahamstown Brewery – trading as Makana Meadery – was founded in 2000 by Cambray, his colleague the late Winston Leukes, and beekeeper Vuyani Ntantiso as a means to commercially produce and market iQhilika (isiXhosa, meaning “mead”).In African culture, mead is said to give the drinker the strength of a lion. Mead is produced throughout the continent in numerous variations and in the Eastern Cape, the local Xhosa people and their ancestors have made it for centuries.Cave paintings in the area show the ancient San Bushmen sipping iQhilika some 25 000 years ago, and their knowledge has come down through the years to the local people.Making changes for the betterCambray explained his interest in mead succinctly: “They stole my bicycle“.He added: “I was a second-year student at Rhodes and needed to make some extra money for a new bicycle.” Through Leukes, he became involved with bees and beekeeping and through this, with mead production.When it opened its doors 11 years ago, Makana Meadery had a staff count of around 15 people. The meadery is proving that even small companies can make a profound impact on areas like unemployment, skills development, technology, sustainability and biodiversity.Makana is 50% owned by previously disadvantaged people, who now have a chance at a brighter future.The introduction of an extensive beekeeping programme enabled Makana staff to train no fewer than 400 unemployed people – some from as far away as the Congo, according to Cambray – in the delicate art of beekeeping. This has equipped them with life-changing skills that can be passed on from generation to generation and bring in an income for their families.Makana uses the indigenous Cape honey bee, Apis mellifera capensis, which occurs throughout the southern part of South Africa.“The beekeepers we’ve trained are all independent and we encourage them to sell their honey into the local market,” said Cambray. “If there is then any surplus, we buy it from them.”A demand for mead means a demand for bees. According to Cambray, bees provide a crucial ecological service not only to vegetation but also to the human food supply.“For instance, most canola farms keep three or four beehives per hectare as they help with the pollination process.”A single bee in a hive can travel up to three kilometres per trip to collect nectar and can visit on average 400 flowers per trip.“About 120 bees leave the hive every minute to do this and they do it for sometimes eight or nine hours a day,” said Cambray. In this case millions of flowers can be pollinated every day.This also means that the taste of the honey is never exactly the same, as the bees travel to different flowers all the time. So too, the flavours in mead have subtle variations from batch to batch.As with conventional wine, mead can be dry or sweet – the taste depends on how much honey is used during the fermentation process. The more honey, the sweeter the end result. But whatever the flavour and whatever the recipe, Cambray and his team are proving that even the harsh sting of a bee can leave a sweet taste on the lips.Refining the production processMead production is a time-consuming process and is often a labour of love rather than a pursuit of profit. The technological aspect is complicated as the fermentation process with honey takes longer than that of grapes or hops.Cambray has redeveloped and streamlined the process, with no ill effects on the final product, which has been hailed for its authentic taste by traditional iQhilika brewers.“All fermentation processes, be it mead or wine or beer, uses technology that is thousands of years old,” he said. “I just looked at it and thought about what would make it easier and then cut out areas where most problems arise.”His innovation has allowed the meadery to now produce up to 15 000 bottles of mead annually. In addition to the popular drink, Makana also produces mead vinegar, honey mead mustard, conventional honey, and honey-based jams and marmalades.Sustainable operationNot only is Makana facilitating a positive change in the community around them, it’s showing that this can be done without a negative impact on the environment. With the growing concerns of global warming and water shortages, Cambray and his team are making progress in the areas of sustainability and biodiversity.While even a small brewery can use over 150 litres of water to produce 1 litre of beer, mead production uses a mere four to six litres of water per litre of mead.The beverage also does not require the use of any cultivated agricultural land or resources such as irrigation. The honey used is usually collected from local bee populations in natural vegetation.Also, if the production process is carried out carefully, it can spur the growth of a wild bee population. This in turn causes natural forests and vegetation to proliferate. Therefore, when a bottle of mead is purchased, the consumer can rest assured that they are actively supporting the conservation of ecosystems and promoting sustainability.The future of Makana Meadery is looking green with Cambray’s plans to eventually use iQhilika bee-pollinated sunflower oil to transport the mead wherever it may need to go. By converting sunflower oil to biofuel, the meadery’s ecological footprint is lowered even further.A sawmill on the premises is used to provide wood for beehives, which are manufactured at Makana. More beehives, more honey, more mead. The wood is also used to make a variety of other products such as picnic tables and mead storage racks. Nothing is wasted – left-over pieces are used to make dog kennels and various sized chairs.Increasing demandThe local demand for mead varies from year to year – when the local demand is high, most of Makana’s mead is sold in the area and when the demand is low, it is exported, mostly to the US.The popularity of Makana’s mead varieties in the US is seen in the many awards the products have won. The Africa Herbal Blossom mead took the gold medal in 2006 and 2007 at the International Mead Convention held in Boulder, Colorado, while the spicy African Birds Eye Chilli mead won silver in its category.Although bee populations are shrinking in Europe and mead doesn’t seem to be as popular there, the hope is that African mead and all its different variations – as African regions have their own method of mead production – will begin fuelling a need for mead in Europe.last_img read more

Dr Benn builds a clinic without walls

first_imgDr Carol Benn is the leader, but she praises her team for the success of the HJ Breast Clinic. Sulaiman PhilipPink has never seemed as soothing as it does on the walls of the HJ Breast Cancer Clinic at Helen Joseph Hospital in Johannesburg. The colour warms up the windowless warren of consulting, counselling and treatment rooms.Warming the sterile environment even more is clinic head Dr Carol Benn. She is a dervish of energy and conversation, stopping to check on patients waiting for treatment, leaving smiles in her wake.Most are black, some are white. The little girl of one patient is falling asleep on a chair next to her mother. All are sitting straight-backed on plastic chairs. One has dressed up, reminding the world she is a sensual, vital woman. Another is wrapped tightly in starch-stiff traditional dress. Some are mothers, other grandmothers. One looks just old enough to have finished high school and another has the weary look of someone who has lived a long and difficult life. They are all women who look to Benn and her staff to make them and their lives better.The team at the HJ Breast Clinic has created a welcoming, healing space for women. Their success is just another step towards creating what the doctor calls a “clinic without walls”, a health system that treats its patients as whole beings and not just a collection of diseased organs. The HJ Breast Clinic survives on the generosity of former patients and corporates. One of whom donated the pink paint to brighten up the clinic (Image credit: Shout-Africa).Dressed in surgical scrubs, bag slung over a shoulder, a bottle of something green cradled in her arms, Benn starts talking. “I had a patient tell me she had to stop chemo because she could not be a wife to her husband. She chose death for her husband; is that what men should be demanding from the women in their lives?”Her clinic without walls is a place where a multitude of medical and social disciplines look at the whole of the patient during treatment. She is pushing to move away from the small pond kind of medicine that has been standard, especially in the public health system, where the social challenges patients face have a bigger effect on treatment outcomes.“Nobody dies from a cancer in the breast; it’s the damage that the disease does elsewhere. With a multidisciplinary team we can ensure that a woman, for example, one day post-op does not have to take a taxi home and she must not be discharged before a social worker or counsellor sees her.”At the breast clinic, Benn oversees a group of passionate doctors, nurses and administrative staff who care for each patient from her first visit onwards. They work tirelessly to promote safe and healthy lifestyles for the 200 women a day who visit the clinic.“We love what we do. If we were not passionate about helping to create better lives for South African women we would need to evaluate how we spend our days.”The clinic is a centre built on the free access to information, awareness and treatment. Despite the challenges, Benn is recreating a system she uses in her private practice to provide the best care for her patients, many of whom lack the information or the resources that can stop their treatable disease from being a death sentence.“This is the kitchen of the house, where we come together as family,” she begins. Her home analogy builds as she talks of the women who seek treatment as kin. “It would feel like I was kicking someone out of the nest if we could not offer this other help. Our work is not just about operating; it’s also about health awareness and taking away the stigma.“We need to get education out to everyone. We need to get health awareness into our young girls about condoms, safe sex, about gynae and breast exams. If, by the time the girl is out of school or university, you have instilled that in her, she will encourage her mom, sister and family to go for check-ups.”One line for penises and one for breasts is the way Benn remembers the first breast clinic she was asked to set up in Soweto’s Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in 1997. Her clinic was a desk in the urology department, where she treated about two patients a week. The numbers, she says, were down to a lack of information about and awareness of breast cancer.Instead of welcoming her light work load, Benn started pushing back against the lack of awareness because, as she explains, she was tired of “looking into the sad faces of women who would line up for emergency breast cancer operations”. Her biggest success then was to re-introduce breast reconstruction into South African operating rooms, especially in the public health system.“Doctors would tell patients it was their breasts or their lives and they would not do immediate reconstructions.” Now she counsels patients that it is their body and they need to be fully informed and take part in decisions about their treatment.And she is off again, her voice raising as she warms to the point she is making. Benn, a patron of the newly formed Medical Women’s Association of South Africa (MWASA), hopes that people will learn to give back instead of asking what is being done for them. At the MWASA founding congress, she heard a story from an internist about a woman who would seek treatment after being abused by her partner, but could not leave him. She had nowhere to go to escape her tormentor; her escape came when he killed her.“Where is the community hall named after her? Why is there no shelter for women in her community, a place where meals and a bed are available? With security. How much could that cost?”Benn comes to a pause in a consulting room, overstuffed couches and framed portraits add touches of comfort and home. In rest she is just as excitable. Not a collage, but gilt framed portraits of women who have conquered breast cancer line the walls. There are celebrities – Lillian Dube, women young and old, all heroes to her. “Here, look at this woman. She beat breast cancer. Came back to the hospital and donated blankets. She felt a need to give back; we need more people like her.”When she asks “what are you doing to make your community better” it is heavy with substance. Victims of domestic abuse who cross her path, many too scared to leave or without a place to flee too, have her phone number and are welcome in her home till they find a safe place.Choosing to work at Helen Joseph is one way that Benn makes a difference in her world. She wonders aloud how quickly the public health system would improve if other doctors did as she does. “We make a real difference in women’s lives. Can you imagine if other doctors volunteered? We could change health care for the better.”last_img read more

Anthony Wayne members tour Sunshine facilities

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest On September 20th, several Anthony Wayne FFA members took a field trip to the Sunshine facilities in Maumee. To begin the field trip, the classes toured Sunshine’s barn and greenhouse, while learning about volunteer opportunities. After the tour, the classes split up and began different activities. The Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources II and Genetics classes worked with the residents of Sunshine to build their own hydroponics systems out of gallon jugs. They will be growing basil and lettuce in these systems. Madelynn Mangold said “My favorite part was helping the residents and seeing the smiles on their faces when they knew that they were going to be able to grow their own food by hydroponics”.  The Equine & Vet Science and Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources II students cleaned horse stalls in the barn. They also painted and washed ponies to help desensitize the animals so that they are safe for the Sunshine residents. After returning to Anthony Wayne, several students worked to take apart old pallets and cut wood for Sunshine residents to use to create pallet yard art. This new collaboration has been a great opportunity for FFA members to be involved in their community while learning more about Sunshine. Kayleigh Roberts disassembled pallets for Sunshine residents to create scarecrows and snowmen pallet art. Anthony Wayne FFA members (Left to right: Madelynn Mangold, Ava Siwa, Jensen Sharp, Carley Winslow, Luke Gunn, Aubrey Armstrong) along with two Sunshine residents built hydroponic systems together. Maggie Burkett, Miranda King, Megan Eisinger and Autumn Atamanick painted a pony to help remove the sunset for Sunshine residents. FFA members took a tour of the greenhouses and raised gardens at Sunshine.last_img read more

GreenBuild Conference Opens in Toronto

Start Free Trial Already a member? Log incenter_img The GreenBuild conference in Toronto, Ontario, opened its gates on October 5, 2011. This is the first time that the U.S. Green Building Council has held its annual conference outside of the United States.The keynote speech was provided by New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, a longtime promoter of the benefits of globalization. His usual “capitalism is good for the planet” message has been tempered lately by some sensible opinions on the need for governments to impose carbon taxes on fossil fuels, and his speech was well received by the crowd. The event, held in a hockey arena decorated by a 20 foot by 40 foot custom-made neon sign blinking “Next” — USGBC’s chosen theme for this year’s conference — was conducted like a pep rally. There were several opportunities for green building promoters to engage in self-congratulation. Friedman, a quick study, understood the mood and did his part, repeatedly praising those who construct green buildings.After Friedman spoke, he joined an on-stage panel discussion with Cokie Roberts of NPR, former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell, and Dr. Paul Farmer of Partners in Health, a true hero. Unfortunately, Dr. Farmer had few opportunities to share stories of his work in Haiti, in spite of valiant attempts by Cokie Roberts to balance a conversation that in many ways was dominated by Friedman’s mostly optimistic world view.This morning I attended a presentation on the Passivhaus standard. The two American presenters, Bronwyn Barry and Prudence Ferreira, managed to get through their explanations of how the standard works in the U.S. without once mentioning the PHI/PHIUS divorce. The closest that Barry came to the topic was when she explained that “You can have your building certified. These certifications are now changing.”The trade show floor has a few interesting products, including a… last_img read more

Minister Accepts Electricity Committee Recommendations

first_img Sustaining a reliable electricity supply will be the province’snumber one priority as it makes changes to Nova Scotia’selectricity system to increase competition and encourage morerenewable energy sources. Energy Minister Cecil Clarke has accepted the recommendations ina report submitted by the Electricity Marketplace GovernanceCommittee in October. The comprehensive report addresses a numberof complex issues with respect to electricity markets,competition, transmission, renewable energy, meeting an increasedenergy demand, and co-generation and makes 89 recommendations. “The report provides us with a framework for improving ourelectricity market by encouraging competition and renewableenergy generation in a way that protects the reliability of oursystem,” said Mr. Clarke. “Implementing the framework will be along-term process — we’re going to be cautious, collaborativeand we’re going to do this the right way so that we are able tomeet our energy needs today and into the future.” The Department of Energy will be working with the Nova ScotiaUtility and Review Board (UARB), Nova Scotia Power and otherstakeholders in the coming months to establish transmissionaccess to power producers, open competition for municipalutilities and permit the sale of renewable energy. Some of the recommendations will require approval from the UARB,while others will require changes to legislation. “Like the Energy Strategy, the report identifies a number ofinitiatives that we can start right away to begin the process,”said Mr. Clarke. “We’re responding to those now while we work onour approach to some of the more complex recommendations in thereport.” The department will make the report a key priority in the 2004-05business plan and will report on progress made through thegovernment’s yearly accountability report and the annual EnergyStrategy Progress Report. The Electricity Marketplace Governance Committee was created inMay 2002 to make recommendations to the Minister of Energy on thestrategic implementation, development, structure, and rules forthe electricity sector. The committee had seven members and twoobservers and was chaired by Robert Fournier.

UN rights expert calls for independent probe into humanitarian crisis in Fallujah

Paul Hunt, the Commission’s Special Rapporteur on the right to health, said according to some reports, 90 per cent of the estimated 750 civilians killed in Fallujah were non-combatants.His letter lists a number of allegations that have been made against coalition forces, including the use of indiscriminate force, resulting in civilian deaths and casualties; blocking civilians from entering Fallujah’s main hospital; preventing medical staff from either working at the hospital or redeploying medical supplies to an improvised health facility; occupying the hospital; and firing upon ambulances.”These are extremely serious allegations,” the Special Rapporteur said. “An independent investigation can establish whether or not they are true. If they are not true, the coalition should not be falsely accused. If they are true, steps must be taken to ensure these grave breaches of international law do not recur. Lives are at stake – and so is the coalition’s credibility,” he said.”An independent enquiry is especially important because recent events in Fallujah have been shielded from international scrutiny,” Mr. Hunt added. “Access to the city has been severely restricted – and the extreme insecurity has meant that very few independent monitors have been able to report on events.” read more

Neither entered last Saturday’s game against UNLV.Though the Buckeyes will return multiple starters against Rutgers, Ohio State received bad news as Meyer announced redshirt freshman defensive tackle Malik Barrow will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL. Redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Robert Landers is probable for Saturday’s game. He did not play against UNLV and was wearing a walking boot during pregame warmups.Redshirt sophomore backup quarterback Joe Burrow, who suffered a broken bone in his throwing hand prior to the season, played in his first game of the season Saturday and completed all four passes he threw for 37 yards. He only played one offensive series, compared with fellow backup quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who led the offense for seven series.“Last week I wasn’t going to put him in harm’s way,” Meyer said. “Joe is such a tough guy. He thought he was ready after seven days. It’s a broken bone. So that’s why he went in later.”Redshirt senior defensive tackle Michael Hill will not play against Rutgers due to an ongoing suspension for undisclosed reasons.Offensive line important as everLast year, junior right tackle Isaiah Prince struggled mightily and the issues continued as he gave up two sacks during Ohio State’s 31-16 loss to Oklahoma. But Prince, whom Meyer said had his best week of practice, was named the offensive player of the game by Ohio State’s coaching staff for his performance against UNLV.Prince’s improvement will be key to the Buckeyes’ offensive success. Meyer called Ohio State an “offensive line-driven program.” In 2016, Ohio State had two first-team All-American offensive linemen, center Pat Elflein and right guard Billy Price. “I think any coach would stand in front of you and say if your offensive line becomes best in the conference, you’re probably going to win the conference,” Meyer said. “And last year we were not and we did not. So that means that we should be in the hunt if we continue to grow as an offensive line, and Isaiah is a big part of that.”Chris Ash and what makes a good head coachFew coaches have a coaching tree as vast as Meyer. From Texas coach Tom Herman to Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell and South Florida coach Charlie Strong, Meyer has been influential in the careers of many of his former assistants.Rutgers coach Chris Ash looks on during a game against the Washington Huskies at Husky Stadium in Seattle, WA on Saturday, Sept. 3.Credit: Courtesy of Rutgers Athletic CommunicationsTherefore, he has seen what types of personalities work as head coaches and what don’t.“I think if he lives in a little-tunnel world, sometimes those are your best assistant coaches, but they’re not meant to be a head coach,” Meyer said. “If they’re big picture people, and I think especially in college, the recruiting aspect, they can’t be good; they have to be your best recruiter on your staff or they’re going to fail.”Rutgers coach Chris Ash, whom the Buckeyes will face off against Saturday night, worked under Meyer as Ohio State’s co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach in 2014 and 2015 before taking his first head coaching job.Meyer said he thinks the Scarlet Knights have one of the most improved defenses in the country in Ash’s second year at the helm.“I knew Chris was going to be — he’s one of the best we’ve had,” Meyer said. “And obviously did a great job. We went from most missed tackles in college football to the fewest.” read more

iPhone 5 nanoSIM creates 62000 pounds of plastic waste in a weekend

first_imgThe launch of Apple’s latest smartphone has come and gone, sending millions of users home with the latest in mobile tech from Apple. Everything about the iPhone 5 C$269.63 at Amazon is thinner, lighter, and smaller, right down to the SIM card.For the second time since the original iPhone, Apple has opted for a smaller SIM to go in their phone. Micro-SIM cards are now the standard for many carriers, just in time for Apple to adopt the smaller nano-SIM for their devices. This means that every iPhone 5 user, even the ones that are moving from the iPhone 4S, need to move to a new SIM card and throw their old ones away. On an individual scale this is no big deal, but what does such a small change mean on a global scale?Within the first day of pre-orders, Apple had sold more than two million iPhone 5 handsets. This doesn’t include any of the hordes of people that waited outside of an Apple Store on the release day for the phone (which took that figure up to 5 million). This launch was the biggest one Apple has ever had, and the largest pre-order event any smartphone has ever had. More than five million people, most of whom already had a smartphone, now need a new SIM card.Despite the nano-SIM being much smaller than previous cards, the plastic tray that every user is given is the exact same size. This credit card sized piece of plastic has a small rectangle notched out where you punch through and pop out your nano-SIM. The previous SIM and the plastic holder for the new SIM are then tossed in the garbage.The previous SIM and the casing to the new SIM together will weigh about 5.6 grams. If you look at the five million users that managed to secure an iPhone 5 already, that is roughly 62,000 pounds of plastic waste generated just by forcing every user to replace their SIM card. Nearly 62,000 pounds of plastic waste generated in a single weekend, and the knowledge that if any of those users move away from the iPhone 5 to another device any time soon, that user will need to change SIM cards all over again.Apple maintains a page on their own website that describes all of the environmental practices, including the things they have done to improve their packaging and manufacturing process along the way. That page has not yet been updated to the iPhone 5, and so does not include any information on what Apple feels the footprint of their latest smartphone is.If you are someone who has just picked up the iPhone 5 and changed SIM, please recyle the plastic.last_img read more

Greek Photobucket hacker offered unpaid position

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A Greek computer programmer who was found to be hacking into Photobucket is now an official employee of the company.Twenty-seven-year-old Athanasios ‘Thaos’ Andrianakis and his accomplice Brandon Bourret were found to have pirated thousands of nude images that were being stored on the photo-sharing service’s software.According to the Denver Post, Bourret has been sentenced to 29 months in prison, while Photobucket will take advantage of Andrianakis’ knowledge. Aware of the company’s online weaknesses, the programmer will assist with the writing and development of software that will seek out and expose any child pornographers using the service.He will work as an unpaid intern for a minimum of 15 months to pay off $90,000 worth of compensation.The reason for the different legal sentences is that the case for each defendant were different: Andrianakis played a technical role that focused and exploited Photobucket’s weaknesses, while Bourret contacted victims requesting monetary remuneration to remove their images from a public forum.last_img read more

Grocery Social stocks more than cocktails in downtown Vancouver

first_imgWhy: The Grocery Cocktail & Social is a well-established, casual cocktail lounge in downtown Vancouver. The menu features comfort food made from scratch with locally sourced ingredients and handcrafted cocktails.What I tried: My dining companion and I tried the meat and cheese plate, the mac ‘n’ cheese, the pork braised collards, the Grocery burger with fingerling jojos, and the grilled romaine hearts.The highlight was the burger, which begins with an airy, toasted potato bun and a Cascade Natural beef patty. A sweet and salty bacon jam, sweet onions, garlic mayonnaise and handmade American cheese with a bit of lettuce is stacked on the burger. It was the best burger I have had in recent memory. The ingredients could not have been more suited to meet atop the beef patty; the result was a delight to the palate. Bacon jam has been appearing on burgers everywhere as of late and until The Grocery’s, I had yet to find one done right. The fingerling potatoes made into jojos were equally impressive. Such a simple thing, but they were perfectly cooked, crisped and seasoned.The grilled romaine hearts combine capers, Parmesan and a creamy, toasted garlic vinaigrette. Topped with a sunny side up egg and crispy anchovies, this is a unique salad worth trying.The mac ‘n’ cheese we found to be bland and less creamy than expected.If you like collards, the pork braised collards will likely satisfy.The meat and cheese plate consists of a couple of meat options and three cheeses along with grilled sourdough baguette slices, dried fruit and pickled vegetables. We found most of it agreeable. I especially enjoyed the creamy variety of cheese, which could be spread on the bread; however, the salami was a bit too fatty for my liking.I also had a hot toddy to ward off the cold evening. It was expertly made.last_img read more

Costa Rica passes bill to curb hot money investments

first_imgThe Legislative Assembly approved in a second-round vote Monday afternoon a long-delayed capital-control bill that requires foreign investors to deposit 25 percent of their investment with the Central Bank (BCCR).The bill’s passage is a reminder of how quickly the winds of foreign capital can change direction. Last year, when the bill was first introduced, President Laura Chinchilla’s administration was concerned that short-term foreign investors looking to turn a quick profit on high interest rates would overheat the Costa Rican economy. But after the colón’s recent devaluation, Costa Rica might gladly welcome back some of those short-term investments, also known as hot money.“This gives the executive branch the tools to confront foreign capital whose only purpose is to take advantage of high rates of return and destabilize the country’s economy,” said National Liberation Party lawmaker and Financial Affairs Commission President Siany Villalobos.The bill requires investors outside Costa Rica to deposit 25 percent of their investment with the BCCR in the same denomination as their investment.The new powers will permit the BCCR’s board of directors to raise taxes by up to 30 percent on capital gains or other investment yields for up to six months at a time if they believe the investments could destabilize the economy.The BCCR released a statement Tuesday that these restrictions would not apply to other kinds of foreign investment, such as property, factories or other investment projects.The bank added that the hot money flows that sparked the need for legislation were no longer an issue, and that there was no plan to implement these new tax powers.“In the current conditions, it would not be necessary or possible to use the measures the bill approves,” the bank wrote in a statement on its website, adding that the Central Bank did not anticipate any change in the exchange rate, capital investment or other economic variables because of the bill’s passage.Costa Rica has seen its currency, the colón, devalue roughly 10 percent against the U.S. dollar since January, prompting the BCCR to intervene. Central Bank President Rodrigo Bolaños previously argued that the sudden rise in the colón coincided with the second announcement by the U.S. Federal Reserve that it would pull back economic stimulus from the U.S. economy.The new bill will become law once signed by President Chinchilla and published in the official government newspaper La Gaceta.
