Seremaia Bai’s dangerous tackle on Aled Brew earns him yellow

first_imgTuesday Nov 23, 2010 Seremaia Bai’s dangerous tackle on Aled Brew earns him yellow The Wales and Fiji game on Friday wasn’t too spectacular as for whatever reason, both sides failed to hit their straps. In an uneventful game, one of the moments that stood out was this tackle that resulted in a yellow card for Seremaia Bai. Bai, so often an integral part of the Fiji setup, was sent from the pitch for ten minutes after what was ruled as a spear, or dangerous , tackle. He certainly lifted Brew’s legs past the horizontal and by recent rulings that alone is enough to show a player yellow, and in some cases can even result in suspension, as we saw a few months back in the Tri Nations. If we look at it a little closer though, was this not a case of a great hit being over policed because of a technicality? By all means it looked like what we’ve all come to know as a good, solid, dump tackle. If a player’s legs happen to go up in the air at the last moment but he still lands in the same position he would have if they hadn’t, should the tackler be penalised for that? A lot of it is about momentum and balance. If anything, Bai seemed to land more awkwardly. It certainly wasn’t a lift, twist, and drive like we’ve seen rightly penalised in recent years. Bai actually went on to kick the all important penalty for the draw later in the game, so it was quite an interesting night for him. Technically this decision was correct and spear tackles should definitely be stamped out of the game, but do you agree that perhaps officials are told to judge on the position of the legs rather than the tackle for what it is? All opinions are welcome as I’m sure we all see it differently.

This is the first building that catches your eyes when you get out of the station. Accordingly, we have designed this building not just as a simple cube, but as a funny and interesting form composed by two sides of the façade in order to make people create various images. It is designed sharply, clearly and dynamically. The name of this place is Sumizome-Cho, Fushimi-Ku in Kyoto city. This building has three stories made of a steel structure. The first and the second floor are for tenants, a pharmacy and a nursery school respectively. The third floor is a residential space for the parents of the client.Save this picture!Sections The north side of this site faces the main street of this neighborhood. There is a bridge east of the site, which connects the site and the main shopping street. The railway station is just 5 meters away from here. A small canal runs along the site. It is named “Kamogawa-Unga,” one of the branches of the Lake Biwa Canal, which was constructed during the Meiji period. This man-made waterway reminds neighbors of the history of the development of this area. This is one of “the traces of Kyoto’s dream.” It will be explained below. Our young client was born in this place and is working in Tokyo now. His parents ran a vegetable shop, but they felt they were too old to keep it and decided to close it down. Their house for working and living was dilapidated, so their son, i.e. our client decided to rebuild it. Save this picture!© Koichi Torimura The program was very clear. The first and the second floor will be designed for shops or retails, and the third floor is a residence for his parents. In the future, he might come back to this place and will have his own office in this building. Our client believes that this town should be changed to a more beautiful place. When he was looking for an architect, he noticed an interesting building in his neighborhood. It was an apartment house named “Slit Court” designed by our office, the Eastern Design Office. Our office is also along this canal and we are neighbors. The “ Slit Court” built along the main street is just 15-meters west from this “Kanoko House”. This site is a nice viewpoint seen from the station near a small canal.  From this place, we can get a wide view of the main street and the canal. We have suggested several designs and the “asymmetrical form” was the one our client preferred, saying this irregularly shaped design is beautiful.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe first and the second floor for shops face to the canal with a glass facade. The third floor is rather enclosed and we have designed small windows at some points to get the light and sight. The idea of the entire shape is to cut a part of the north corner diagonally and make terraces in that area. We intended to make the volume of the three-story building into one controlled design, yet each tenant floor is open to the town to let them interact lively and actively. At the pharmacy on the first floor, moms and kids are able to play in a kids corner provided in front of the canal. That is where the tip of the diagonal cut west facade and the ground meat. At the nursery school on the second floor, you can see the kids playing. In the evening, the lighting of each floor is gently shining and at night, lighting from the small windows rhythmically flourishes. About the canal “Kamogawa Unga“, “a trace of Kyoto’s dream”. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraBefore the Meiji era, the capital of Japan had been in Kyoto, but it was transferred to Tokyo as a result of the Meiji Restoration, which consequently leads to the decline of Kyoto. Therefore, people of Kyoto decided to construct a new Lake Biwa Canal for tapping water, waterways as transportation artery and waterpower that would stimulate new industries to trigger the revitalization of Kyoto. At that time, most of the civil engineering construction was designed and supervised by foreign engineers, but these canals are the first project that was carried out by the Japanese engineers only. There has been a hydroelectric power station 1 km southwards from this site. This canal has played a key role as a basic driving power to contribute to thriving newer industries such as spinning, stretching copper panels, machinery, Tobacco and so on. Our client named this building “Kanoko building“ from the image of the fawn/young deer drinking water next to the bridge over the small canal.

Judge Orders IBM To Post $25M Bond In Indiana Welfare Case

first_imgIBM Corp. must post a $25 million bond as it appeals a $78 million judgment in a long-running case that stems from the company’s failed effort to automate much of Indiana’s welfare services. POSTED BY INDIANALAWYERJanuary 9, 2018 Marion Superior Court Judge Heather Welch issued the order Tuesday while granting IBM’s request to halt enforcement of the full monetary judgment as its appeal is pending. The company has two weeks to post the $25 million, which is Indiana’s maximum for an appeals bond.Armonk, New York-based IBM has appealed Welch’s finding in August that the technology and consulting giant owes Indiana $78 million in damages from its botched attempt to privatize and automate the processing of Indiana’s welfare applications.The judge wrote in Tuesday’s order that IBM had argued that its “financial strength proves that it will have the means to pay” about $90 million — the amount the award is expected to grow to, with interest, over the two years its appeal will likely take.She noted in approving the $25 million bond that Indiana’s attorneys had sought “more certainty” that IBM would be able pay up if its appeal fails. But Welch wrote that Indiana’s concerns about IBM’s long-term viability, and its ability to pay the full amount, seem “highly unlikely except under extreme circumstances” given the company’s annual revenues in the billions of dollars.“To no longer be viable, IBM would have to suffer a disaster or Enron-Ievel scandal to no longer be a viable company in the approximately two-year appeal process,” she wrote.story continues belowJohn Maley, a Barnes & Thornburg parnter representing Indiana, praised the judge’s “prompt ruling” coming a month after she heard arguments in the matter. “We’re pleased that IBM, like all others, is required to post this bond,” he said Wednesday.IBM spokesman Clint Roswell said the company is happy with the ruling.Indiana and IBM sued each other in 2010 after then-Gov. Mitch Daniels cancelled the company’s $1.3 billion contract under which an IBM-led team of vendors worked to process applications for food stamps, Medicaid and other benefits.Indiana pulled that contract in late 2009, less than three years into the 10-year deal, following complaints about long wait times, lost documents and improper rejections.The Indiana Supreme Court ruled in 2016 that IBM breached its contract and directed the trial court to calculate the damages. The justices affirmed an award of nearly $50 million to IBM in state fees, but allowed Indiana to seek more than $172 million in damages from IBM.center_img FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Pro Se Inmate Wins Appeal Of Sentence Modification

first_imgDave Stafford for www.theindianalawyer.comAn inmate’s pro se legal briefs arguing for a modification of his 70-year drug sentence impressed the Indiana Court of Appeals, who granted him another chance to make his case that he deserves leniency as a model prisoner who made the best of his time behind bars.Woodford, 61, has been in prison for 16 years after he was convicted of Class A felony dealing in cocaine, Class D felony possession of a controlled substance, and being adjudicated a habitual offender. Elkhart Circuit Judge Terry C. Shewmaker ordered that the final 12 years of Woodford’s sentence be served on in-home detention in community corrections. Woodford appealed because Shewmaker didn’t reduce his sentence despite Woodford’s exemplary record in the Department of Correction.In September 2015, Woodford filed a sentence modification petition that asked he be placed in community corrections. He cited his age, educational achievements, and the fact he had remained free of conduct violations during his 16 year incarceration. He argued on appeal that he was entitled to the full relief he sought and asked the court to weigh his appeal as an abuse of the trial court’s discretion, which the Court of Appeals declined to do.“The 2015 sentence modification statute gives the court authority to ‘reduce or suspend the sentence and impose a sentence that the court was authorized to impose at the time of sentencing,” Judge L. Mark Bailey wrote, citing I.C. § 35-38-1-17(e)(Supp. 2015). “Based on our review of the hearing transcript and the court’s written order, it is unclear whether the trial court was operating under the 2015 sentence modification statute when it modified Woodford’s placement rather than reduce or suspend his sentence. Accordingly, we will not review the trial court’s modification order for abuse of discretion as Woodford requests, but instead remand the petition for consideration under Indiana Code § 35-38-1-17 (Supp. 2015).”The court made this observation in a footnote: “Woodford obtained a legal assistance/paralegal diploma, earned a computer operator apprenticeship, and completed an associate degree in organizational leadership with a 3.917 GPA. Given the quality of Woodford’s written briefs in this case, we are not surprised by Woodford’s academic achievements.”The court also rejected the state’s arguments that Woodford could not seek a modification without the consent of the prosecutor. Consent was not required because Woodford’s convictions were not for violent offenses, the panel wrote.The case is William J. Woodford v. State of Indiana, 20A03-1601-CR-171.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

They ponder the universe

first_img Inside the Antimatter Factory at CERN, the ATRAP antimatter experiment seeks to slow and trap antimatter for comparison with ordinary matter.On desktop, click and drag your mouse for 360° views. On mobile, use the YouTube app to watch these videos, and move your phone to explore. With a headset, such as Google Cardboard, use the YouTube mobile app to load the video and look around.“Those four years at CERN doing research were a very important part of my training,” said Harvard Physics Department chair Masahiro Morii, who was a research scientist at CERN early in his career. “It taught me things that are a bit difficult to quantify, but changed my perspective very drastically on what it means to be a scientist, what it means to be a high-energy physicist.”Year-round, the graduate students and postdoctoral fellows taking their initial career steps work among established scientists, learning and gaining experience difficult to get outside of CERN or a handful of other facilities around the world. Harvard’s Donner Professor of Science John Huth said what becomes apparent is science’s messiness.“They see the process as it unfold with all its warts. Science is pretty messy when you get into the nitty-gritty,” Huth said. “It’s just an invaluable experience. Even if you become a scientist in a different discipline or you leave science entirely, understanding that intrinsic messiness is really important.”In an environment focused on the practice of physics rather than the teaching of it, CERN puts the onus for learning onto the student, Morii said. Students build and test equipment, make sure what’s installed is running properly, and pluck the most meaningful pieces from the resulting data tsunami. They analyze it at all hours of the day and sometimes deep into the night, since there’s always someone awake and logged onto Skype to answer a question or share an insight.“People are really passionate, so it doesn’t really feel like you’re up until 11 doing your job. Maybe you’re thinking about something on the train home and you wanted to look into it. It’s not regular hours, but I don’t think that deters anyone,” said Harvard physics Ph.D. student Julia Gonski. “People like the work and it’s fun. Twenty-four hours a day, you can get on Skype and someone you know is on Skype and working.”While fellows and graduate students are at CERN year-round, each summer the campus’ population swells as undergraduates eager to take part in the world’s most famous science experiment step off the plane in Geneva.At CERN, they become part of a unique city of physicists from around the world, with different educational and cultural backgrounds but the same passions and similar goals.“It was this enormous scientific laboratory, with thousands of people working all hours of the night trying to understand the fundamentals of the universe, as corny as that is to say,” said Harvard postdoctoral fellow Alexander Tuna, who first came to CERN as a summer undergrad from Duke University in 2009. “It was really immersive and fun. There’s always someone around with an interesting insight or an answer to a question.”The secrets of the universeAs a visitor approaches CERN, the giant brown orb of the multistory Globe of Science and Innovation comes into view.The globe, looking like an enormous particle half-buried in the earth, serves as a CERN welcome center and is far more visually appealing than the main campus across the street. Protected by fences with access limited through guard stations, the campus’ narrow, twisting roadways wind between boxy, industrial-looking buildings numbered instead of named, as if creativity there is reserved for science instead of infrastructure. Even the cafeteria that serves as a central gathering spot is named simply “Restaurant 1.”“It was different than I expected,” said Harvard junior Matthew Bledsoe. “I figured a place on the forefront of physics would look fresher and newer, new buildings and stuff. But [they are] 1950s and ’60s-era buildings, so the buildings are pretty old. It looks like a factory.”Visitors quickly learn to look past the boxy exteriors to what’s inside. There they find thousands of people working on 18 experiments, seven associated with the LHC and the others with smaller accelerators and a decelerator, which is used for antimatter experiments like those run by Harvard Physics Professor Gerald Gabrielse’s ATRAP collaboration.ATRAP, short for “antihydrogen trap,” relies on the LHC’s high energy to make protons collide with a target to create antiprotons. The experiment then cools and slows the antiprotons, and combines them with positrons, the antimatter equivalent of electrons, to create antihydrogen for study and comparison with ordinary hydrogen. Gabrielse, who pioneered antimatter experiments at CERN, said that for students who want to go into high-energy physics, getting a taste of the enormous collaborations that are behind such experiments is key.“If you’re interested in making a career in doing those kinds of things [experimental particle physics], it’s extremely important to have this experience,” Gabrielse said.The LHC, with its potential to pierce the veil between the known world of the Standard Model and the mysteries that the model does not address, takes center stage. Yet to visitors wandering the halls and sidewalks of CERN, the LHC is nowhere to be seen.That’s because the LHC is buried 300 feet underground in a massive tunnel that runs 17 miles from Switzerland into France and back again. Its twin proton beams circle in opposite directions, crossing four times on their journey. At those crossings are four major particle detectors, one of which is ATLAS, a massive machine backed by a worldwide collaboration in which Harvard scientists play lead roles, and which was one of two experiments to detect the Higgs boson.Outside the ATLAS control room at the LHC. Joe Sherman/Harvard Staff Photographer“You can think of it (ATLAS) as a really large camera surrounding the collision point where protons collide,” Tuna said.ATLAS, which stands for A Toroidal LHC Apparatus, is 180 feet long, 82 feet in diameter, and weighs 7,000 tons. When the proton beams collide, they scatter particles in all directions. ATLAS dutifully records these collisions, producing far more data than current computing technology can store, so filters are employed that screen out more mundane results and keep only the most promising for analysis.The complex undertaking requires a collaboration that is as massive as the task the researchers have set for themselves. It includes about 3,000 physicists from 175 institutions in 38 countries.“This is the center of particle physics right now,” said Harvard Ph.D. student Karri DiPetrillo. “As a scientist, you like asking nature questions and seeing what the answer is. Because we have thousands of people working on a single experiment, you know we’re asking some of the hardest questions in the universe. If it takes thousands of people to find the answer, you know that it’s a good question.”For decades, physicists exploring the most basic particles that make up the universe were guided by the Standard Model, which held that everything is made of a limited number of quarks, leptons, and bosons. Over the years, one by one, experimental physicists, including Harvard faculty members, found the particles predicted by the theory: bottom quark, W boson, Z boson, top quark. In 2012, they found the Higgs boson, the last theorized particle.When the huge hubbub over the Higgs discovery faded, particle physicists began to assess the field’s new reality. After decades in which theoretical physicists were leading, telling experimental physicists what new particle to look for, the roles are now reversed.As reliable as the Standard Model has been, it doesn’t explain everything. And, while theoretical physicists have several ideas of where those mysteries might fit into current knowledge, no evidence exists to tip the scales toward one idea or another.Even the Higgs boson still holds secrets, as detecting it didn’t completely explain it. Scientists who continue to probe the Higgs boson hope that the particle may yet reveal clues — inconsistencies from what is expected from the Standard Model — that will outline the broader path forward.“There are really two paths. One path is to really push on what we understand about the Higgs boson because that has the strangest properties associated with it and if you push the theory at all the Higgs creates the most problems for it,” Huth said. “The other is the discovery region for something new, like dark matter.”The undergraduate summerA scientist’s path to CERN usually starts with a passion for physics. Graduate student Nathan Jones credits a family road trip to Colorado during which he read a library book about the universe. Undergrad Bledsoe was wowed by a trip to Fermilab outside Chicago as a high school freshman, while grad student Gonski traces it to the annoyance she felt when she learned her high school chemistry teacher had gotten the science wrong.“I remember being in chemistry class in high school when they told us protons and neutrons are indivisible,” said Gonski, who learned otherwise from Stephen Hawking’s “A Brief History of Time.” “I was so offended … I remember being frustrated and asking my parents, ‘Did you guys know?’ At that point I wanted to see how far down we can go [in particle size].”After that initial spark, students take classes and often work in a campus laboratory before heading overseas. Some undergraduates go to CERN through the Undergraduate Summer Research Experience program run by the University of Michigan for students across the country. Several Harvard students benefitted instead from the Weissman International Internship Program Grant, established in 1994 to provide faraway opportunities for them. <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87w92dMVlrE” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://img.youtube.com/vi/87w92dMVlrE/0.jpg” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a> Second in an occasional series on Harvard’s wide-ranging programs and research in Europe.GENEVA — Once you know enough math, Harvard Ph.D. student Tony Tong said, you get to know physics. And physics, he said, is simply amazing.“[Physics] is always helpful to answer the question of ‘Why?’ Why the skies are blue, why the universe is so big, basic stuff,” Tong said. “I’m always curious about those questions and the solution is always so beautiful.”Tong, it seems, had come to the right place. He was speaking on a warm July day in a small courtyard at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, the scientific campus on the outskirts of Geneva that is the world’s beating heart for high-energy particle physics. Home of the world’s most powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN made world headlines in 2012 when scientists announced the discovery of the Higgs boson, the final undiscovered particle in the theoretical framework of the universe called the Standard Model.The eyes of the scientific world remain focused on CERN today because the LHC is back in operation after a major upgrade that boosted its energy to 13 tera electron volts, allowing it to crash beams of protons into each other more powerfully than ever before. Now that the Standard Model is complete, scientists are looking for what’s still mysterious, sometimes called the “new physics” or “physics beyond the Standard Model.” Its form, presumably, would involve a particle born of these high-energy collisions, one that points the way to an even broader understanding of the universe, shedding light on such puzzling areas as dark matter, supersymmetry, dark energy, and even gravity, which has stubbornly refused to fit neatly into our understanding of the universe’s basic forces.CERN fired up its first accelerator in 1957. Among its milestone discoveries are the elementary particles called W and Z bosons, antihydrogen — the antimatter version of the common element — and the creation of the World Wide Web to share massive amounts of information among scientists, scattered at institutions around the world.The CERN campus, which straddles the Switzerland-France border amid breathtaking views of the distant Alps, produces more than just science, however. In ways technological, theoretical, educational, and inspirational, it also produces scientists. <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXiOlrzgUvo” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://img.youtube.com/vi/LXiOlrzgUvo/0.jpg” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a> A field of sunflowers stands at the roadside on the approach to CERN.On desktop, click and drag your mouse for 360° views.

With a headset, such as Google Cardboard, use the YouTube mobile app to load the video and look around.Once the funding is set, there’s nothing left but the plane ride and moving into their new digs. Undergraduates live in settings ranging from downtown Geneva to the French countryside. Last summer, three Harvard students — Ben Garber ’17, Gary Putnam ’17, and Bledsoe — rented an apartment over the border in France and commuted to work each day by bike, while Katie Fraser ’18 stayed closer, at CERN’s on-campus hostel.Days consisted of morning lectures on topics relevant to their work. After those lectures — and the occasional pickup basketball game at lunchtime — they’d spend afternoons working on a project. Garber worked with Tuna and DiPetrillo on an analysis of Higgs boson decay (the particle itself exists for a tiny period of time) into two W bosons. Bledsoe worked on hardware, building and testing a circuit board to be used in the planned 2018 ATLAS upgrade, in the cavernous Building 188 under the tutelage of Theo Alexopoulos from the Technical University of Athens. Wherever they were, whether doing project tasks or having cafeteria conversations, the students were steeped in physics.“It was a lot of fun, different than I expected. You learn stuff just by being there, pick up vocabulary in lunchtime conversations,” Fraser said. “It definitely solidified my desire to go into high-energy physics.”Melissa Franklin, Mallinckrodt Professor of Physics, said lessons can be found behind almost every door at CERN.“I was just amazed, it was unbelievable,” said Franklin, who first visited between her undergraduate and graduate years. “I went to every place I could on site and just knocked on doors and bugged people … You learn so much by osmosis. You have to learn to hang around and ask good questions.”Jennifer Roloff, a Harvard physics Ph.D. student, first came to CERN in 2011 as an undergraduate and has been back every summer. Now she helps manage the University of Michigan summer undergraduate program, which gives her a broad view of the student experience.“There are definitely some students who do miss home,” Roloff said. “For a lot of them it’s the first time out of the country [or] the first time long-term out of the country. For a lot of them, they realize this is not what they want to do. CERN is not for everyone. There are challenges and difficulties that are not in other physics.”That understanding, Gabrielse said, is as important a lesson as finding your intellectual home.“Some decide, based on it, to go into the field. Some decide not to,” Gabrielse said. “That guidance too is valuable.”Yet being at CERN is not just about science. Students have their weekends free and can explore their new surroundings. Some hike the Alps or the closer Jura Mountains. Others walk the ancient streets of Geneva, visiting its lakefront, restaurants, museums, and other attractions. Putnam loved a park near the University of Geneva where people played on large chessboards with giant pieces. He also soaked up the area’s natural splendor.“It’s so beautiful here,” Putnam said. “Sometimes I forget and do the normal thing of looking down and not paying attention, but being able to look up and see the mountains is really special.”On call for a particle emergencyLife at CERN as graduate students is not quite so fancy-free. Visits are limited to summers early in graduate careers as they complete coursework, but once that’s done, they can come and stay to conduct dissertation research.To keep the ATLAS collaboration running, graduate students are required to spend a year of research time doing work to benefit the experiment itself, to ensure that high-quality data is collected, for example, or that potentially significant collision events aren’t lost in the data.“We have to make sure the data we’re receiving is like you expect it, ready for analysis,” DiPetrillo said. “[It’s taken] probably half of my time in the last year; the other half has been working on Standard Model measurement of the Z boson.”A little physicist humor written on a CERN blackboard. Joe Sherman/Harvard Staff PhotographerPart of DiPetrillo’s duty is assisting in ATLAS’ day-to-day operation, working in the ATLAS control room — with its Mission Control feel, and dominated by a wall-sized screen — and monitoring one of several subsystems that make the whole operation work. Monitoring those subsystems makes ATLAS a 24/7 proposition.In addition to working overnight in the control room, DiPetrillo is often on call to back up someone on site. While on call, she has to stay near her phone and within an hour’s drive of the facility in case something goes wrong. If that happens, she troubleshoots the problem with the person in the control room or pushes the problem up to someone more senior.“You can think of ATLAS as always taking data so we always need people watching it, making sure ATLAS is working in a way that we want [it] to, that the detector is working … and that data looks the way we expect,” DiPetrillo said.When not on call or manning the control room overnight, a graduate student’s life at CERN is full of meetings to share and hear the latest findings, and of hours poring over the latest data looking for the kind of statistical bump that might indicate a new particle — or a new something else.The LHC’s recent upgrade has made scientists hopeful that a new particle will be discovered soon. But if not, another upgrade planned for about 2018 may do the trick. While the recent upgrade made the energy of the proton beam higher, the next one will increase luminosity, or the number of protons in the beam, multiplying the number of collisions at any given moment and improving the odds of detecting extremely rare events.“We’re all here to … discover stuff, but it’s so difficult. It’s impossible to do as one person,” Gonski said. “I would love to be one person on the 500-person team to discover [supersymmetry’s] stop quark. It’d be great for physics if we all discovered this and for me to say I want to do this — be a tiny fraction of a large group effort.”SaveSaveSavelast_img read more

Fairytales still make headlines

first_imgLast week, I stood toe-to-toe with Kate Middleton. Her hair was perfectly in place – not a single strand out of place. Her blue dress was exquisite, and I envied her sleek black heels. The gem on her left ring finger sparkled. The Duchess of Cambridge was, in a word, lovely. She was also entirely made out of wax. When I stood three feet from the newest member of Britain’s royal family, I stood in the main display room of Madame Tussauds wax museum in London on the evening before the wax figures of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would be unveiled to the world. A press ID from NBC News hung around my neck, and camera equipment flanked me as I stared at the royal couple poised perfectly on their display stands. This semester, I am a part-time intern at the London bureau of NBC News while I study abroad in the United Kingdom. During my 20-odd hours in the bureau each week, I work in the hub of foreign news coverage for NBC’s Today Show and Nightly News programs. My work here shows me the ins and outs of broadcast journalism, the fast pace of international reporting and the broad scope of a foreign bureau with NBC’s clout even in these economically challenging times. I have learned which stories sell and which do not. Wax or human, Kate always sells. Perhaps I did not quite expect an American news network to be so obsessed with the royal family. Then again, perhaps I forgot how obsessed America (myself included) was with the royal wedding last spring. As Will and Kate tied the knot, the nation stared across the pond and sighed when the picture-perfect couple shared a first kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. Kate seemed the average girl turned princess, and Will seemed the shining prince with the glass slipper. We loved it. Almost a year after the royal wedding, we still love it. As the couple prepares for its first anniversary, our entire bureau is poised for an announcement of a pregnancy. We interview royal experts on how Kate is handling the pressure of her new role, what her relationship with the Queen might be like and how the royal family has changed since Princess Diana’s time. We judged her first public speech (handled gracefully, of course), and we critique her wardrobe with an envious eye. I did have the chance to see Kate – the human Kate – in person with an NBC crew covering one of her first public appearances on her own. The Duchess traveled to Oxford and visited a primary school supported by a charity she patrons, and our crew arrived bright and early (after a 5:30 a.m. wake up call) to stalk her arrival with the rest of the British press. Out of my 12 hours that day with the crew, I saw Kate for a total of roughly nine minutes. We drove to Oxford early in the morning and arrived at the school about two hours before Kate would even be in the town. We introduced ourselves to Kate’s press representatives, set up our equipment in the designated corral for the media, adjusted the camera and speculated about what dress she might wear. And we waited. For hours. In the moment she stepped out of her car (stunning as usual), the cameras snapped into action. Even as half my mind focused on not dropping the sound equipment in my hand while the British press corps jostled each other around me, I craned my next to catch a good glimpse of Kate as she accepted flowers, talked with the children and smiled in genuine joy when they laughed at her jokes. I forgot my meagre hours of sleep and freezing fingers, and the children’s obvious excitement infected me as well when the Duchess passed five feet from my spot. My experience with NBC News has taught me huge lessons about international reporting, journalism and the stories that matter. Our correspondents report from Kabul, Toulouse, Syria and other locations around the world. They tell stories about life and death, peace and war. At first, even as a fan of all things royal, I thought the attraction to Kate in a bureau that follows so many hard-hitting stories was almost trivial. Yet in a day and age when these images of explosion, fighting, hatred and anger can populate the reports we produce, I understand why the public buzzed with excitement for Kate’s nine minutes on camera that day in Oxford. I can see why her wax figure (though eerie in its similarity to her real person) was in high demand. I know why this average woman, a newlywed bride from a small town, might be the focus of an international eye as well. We loved Kate’s story because her story was a fairytale. We still love Kate’s story because her story takes place in a world that is not perfect, but she navigates it with grace and poise and confidence. Kate’s story sells because we want to be reminded of that her story can exist, even here, even now. Fairytales still make headlines.last_img read more

GRC to host Women’s Week 2015

first_imgThis week, the Gender Relations Center (GRC) partnered with Shades of Ebony, a club that recognizes the University’s African-American women, to celebrate the third annual Women’s Week. The theme is “Weaving the Stories of Notre Dame’s History.”Sara Shoemake Junior Chizo Ekechukwu, vice president of Shades of Ebony, said the annual event started as a celebration of the 40th anniversary of coeducation at Notre Dame.“This is one of my favorite Shades [of Ebony] events because we really get to show campus the beauty and talent of women at this University,” she said. “With the passing of Fr. Hesburgh, we really want to give tribute to him and show our appreciation for his great accomplishments for women.”Secretary and marketing director for Shades of Ebony, junior Rachel Wallace also said Hesburgh’s death will influence the events.“With the passing of Fr. Hesburgh, it seems fitting that this week’s events are dedicated to him, as his impact on women at Notre Dame was, and still is, unparalleled,” Wallace said.Events begin Monday night in Geddes Hall with an alumni panel to celebrate the formation of the GRC a decade ago. The panel will start at 7 p.m. and a reception will follow.The club Notre Dames will partner with the GRC and Shades of Ebony on Tuesday night  for their weekly “Talk It Out Tuesday” at 6 p.m. in the Dooley Room of LaFortune. Discussion will focus on women in the media.The main event of the week will be the third annual Celebration of Women Dinner, which will be in the McKenna Hall Dining Room at 6:30 p.m. The program will be dedicated to Hesburgh and will feature three panelists. This event is RSVP only.In the Coleman-Morse Lounge at 8 p.m. Thursday, student groups on campus will collaborate to showcase and celebrate the stories of women’s lives in “Cafemme.” Desserts and coffee will be served and attendees are encouraged to bring toiletries to donate to St. Margaret’s House.Shades of Ebony president, junior Ray’Von Jones said she is looking forward to Cafemme most out of the week’s events.“This event is a performance-based coffeehouse in which various acts will be performing pieces about women,” she said. “This is a great chance for various stories related to women to be told. We wanted to make sure that we made a space for this to take place.”According to the Women’s Week 2015 website, toiletries will be collected in designated residence halls until Friday or can be dropped off at the GRC to benefit St. Margaret’s House.For Friday’s service project, local high school girls will come to campus to decorate toiletry boxes for St. Margaret’s House with the supplies collected throughout the week. They will also make bracelets for cancer patients, according to the Women’s Week 2015 website.To close out the week, Dillon Hall will host a “Rejoice!” Mass at 8 p.m., according to the Women’s Week 2015 website. The mass will feature the Voices of Faith Gospel Choir.More information about the events can be found at the event’s website, sites.google.com/a/nd.edu/womens-week/home.

Gasoline Reserve Comes to LI in Response to Sandy Fuel Chaos

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Long Island will be the site of New York State’s first Strategic Gasoline Reserve as part of a pilot program designed to prevent a crisis at the pump if gas stations lose power for an extended period of time like many did after Superstorm Sandy.The reserve is expected to hold 3 million gallons of fuel for drivers and first responders, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday.“The gap in gasoline supplies during Superstorm Sandy was incredibly disruptive to the daily routines of New Yorkers who needed to get to school and work as well as the operations of businesses during an already difficult time,” Cuomo said.The state’s Fuel NY initiative was created in response to long delays at gas stations battling power outages brought on by Sandy. Drivers across the Island were met with long lines at gas stations, and some were forced to sit on line for several hours only to discover that pumps dried up.About a week after the storm, both Nassau and Suffolk counties implemented odd/even days in an effort to ration fuel. Drivers were only allowed to pump gas if the last number of their license plate corresponded with the day of the month.The state is hoping to prevent a similar crisis in the future.The Strategic Gasoline Reserve will use capacity owned by Northville Industries on Long Island, the state said. The reserve, which will cost $10 million, could also be used to deliver fuel to other areas in the state.“By putting in place a fuel reserve on Long Island it will help relieve stress on the supply of fuel in a time of crisis,” Kevin Beyer, president of Long Island Gasoline Retailers Association, said in a statement.last_img read more

Wenger defends squad break

first_img The Arsenal manager branded criticism of his decision “unbelievable” ahead of his side’s Barclays Premier League trip to Stoke on Saturday. Wenger revealed Mesut Ozil will be fit to return after hip trouble for the weekend’s Potters clash, with Thomas Vermaelen also expected to be available. Wenger said German playmaker Ozil is now ready to shrug off his costly penalty miss in Arsenal’s 2-0 Champions League loss to Bayern Munich. “It’s not necessarily fatigue, I don’t see why that’s suddenly a problem,” said Wenger when questioned on the impromptu rest period he handed his squad this week. “We have played without a break since December, we don’t have to justify that, it’s unbelievable. “We are in a society where everyone wants to control everything; I don’t understand this at all. “We are entitled to do unusual things. We came out of a heavy schedule. We had two days off, that’s all. “Sometimes it’s not only physical, it’s mental, you’re under pressure all the time, there’s nothing unusual there.” Admitting he is still weighing up whether to employ Vermaelen at left back to cover other absentees, Wenger backed Ozil to shrug off recent struggles with the Premier League’s relentless intensity. “He (Ozil) had a difficult game because he missed that penalty, and it was on his mind,” said Wenger. “Sometimes when you’re under this kind of pressure it’s good to refresh. “My opportunity is just to put the best team out who can win the game, it’s not about individuals, it’s about the team. “If needed Thomas can play there (at left back), it’s not his preferred position. “He’s been out for a long time but I still have 48 hours to make that decision.” Olmypiacos loan forward Joel Campbell now has the physicality and temperament to secure himself a long-term future at Arsenal, Wenger revealed. The 21-year-old claimed a fine individual goal in the Greek side’s 2-0 Champions League victory over Manchester United in Athens in midweek. Wenger said a series of loan stints have stood the Costa Rica forward in good stead. “He was good (against Manchester United), convincing in going forward, he looks like he has adapted better to the physical side of the European game,” said Wenger. “We always knew that he had the talent to create something special. “He did rely a bit too much on that, but he has now been out at three different clubs, at Lorient, Sevilla, and Betis. “Now he is at Olympiacos and he has learned the toughness of the European leagues. “I will decide (his future) later, but why not? We bought him to bring him here.” Arsene Wenger has hit out at being forced to justify handing his Arsenal stars two days’ rest this week. Press Associationlast_img read more

Pearson maintains City belief

first_img “There is always scope to do something slightly different to keep morale high, but bottom line is players know they’ve done all right (against Spurs),” the Foxes boss said. “We’ve been unfortunate in different ways, deflections, penalty, own goal. “There are setbacks during game players have to deal with, and then the result, but what does remain there is belief among the group we can get out of the situation. “Whether other people believe it or not is not really relevant. We do believe we’ve been competitive. “It’d be nice to talk about we’ve got away with that today but that’s not what it is.” Instead, Pearson was bemoaning the match-changing penalty awarded by “arrogant” referee Mike Dean. Harry Kane duly converted to bring up his hat-trick, pushing his former club closer to the drop. The current golden boy of English football endured a frustrating loan spell at the King Power Stadium towards the end of the 2012/13 season, scoring just twice after being restricted to what was mostly a bench role by Pearson. Press Association Saturday’s display in the 4-3 defeat at Tottenham belied that of a team at the foot of the standings, although an eighth successive league match without a win only pushes them closer towards relegation. It leaves City seven points adrift of safety with nine matches remaining, yet Pearson insists the belief remains intact inside the dressing room. Leicester have been bottom of the Premier League since late November, yet manager Nigel Pearson still believes they have the wherewithal to beat the drop. The Foxes boss readily admits his rise since then has been “exceptional” – highlighted by this week’s maiden England call-up and his first Premier League hat-trick. “He was two years younger for a start,” Pearson said of the change in 21-year-old. “You’ve got to put it into context that we were not in a good run at that point. “It’s never easy for a young player on loan to come into a side that’s not on the top of their game, and have the impact that you may want “But he did very well in his time with us, but I don’t suppose anybody at that point would have seen the rise he’s had.” Kane’s treble against the Foxes made him the Premier League’s top scorer – a feat made all the more remarkable given the first of those 19 goals did not arrive until November 2. Now he goes away with England for matches against Lithuania and Italy – recognition Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino believes is wholly deserved. “I think it’s a very good thing for him, after scoring three goals,” the former Argentina international said. “It’s a very good moment to be in national team. “I think Harry is today, a player who people prize a lot. I think that this season Harry has a big impact in the English football. I think that he’s one of the better English players so far. “I think he’s a very humble person. From the beginning of the season, I think he impressed us, his human side. His mentality, always wants to improve, never complains. I think it’s a perfect mentality to develop his skill.” last_img read more

Jaguars Franchise League 3-day tournament….

first_imgTwenty-two wickets fall on day one between Georgetown and East Bank – Ricardo Adams lights up Albion with 145A mind-boggling 22 wickets fell on the opening day of the first round fixture of the Jaguars Franchise League three-day tournament between Georgetown and East Bank yesterday at the Lusignan Community Centre ground.Both teams were bowled out – East Bank first for 115 followed by Georgetown for 136 – with the East Bank franchise then reaching stumps on 20-2, batting a second time.Asked to bat first on a pitch which provided some early help for the bowlers, the East Bank franchise lurched feebly to 77-8 by lunch.With Test batsman Vishual Singh in their line-up, the East Bank franchise could not recover from the early loss of Stefon Browne (0) who offered a simple return catch to pacer Paul Wintz in the day’s third over.Thereafter, they lost fellow opener Sachin Singh (1), leg before-wicket to Qumar Torrington, while Robin Bacchus, and Joshua Wade claimed the wickets of Danny Narayan (7), and Ronaldo Ali-Mohamed (0), with the East Bank franchise being reduced to 25-4.However, the only defiance during that session came from the diminutive Vishual Singh and Sherfane Rutherford, with a fifth-wicket stand of 32, until Steven Sankar and Gajanan Suknanan reaped the rewards for some quality spin bowling.Sankar trapped Rutherford leg before wicket for 19, while Suknanan removed the West Indies reject, Singh for 32. He then then had the wicket of Corwin Austin without scoring before Sankar struck just before the interval when he removed Deonarine Seegobin for seven.Resuming after the interval, Sagar Hathiramani and Ershad Ali then provided some resistance, adding 20 runs before Hethiramani went to Sankar for seven.Ali who remained unbeaten on 18, then put together another vital partnership with Totaram Bishun, who contributed 13 in the 18-run stand before Suknanan claimed the final wicket.Both Sankar and Suknanan finished with figures of 3-38 and 3-24 respectively.The response was also a poor performance from the City batsmen. They too lost wickets at regular intervals, with only Bacchus (51) putting up a fight.Medium-pacer Ali-Mohamed started the demolition with the wickets of Martin Pestano-Belle (0) and Sunil Singh (2), but it was fellow medium-pacer Rutherford who sent the City team tumbling, with figures of 7-48.Dexter Solomon (29), Devon Lord (19) and Wade (12), were the other batsmen to reach double figures.Wintz then removed Browne (1) and Narayan (0) in a busy three-over spell, with the East Bank franchise being one run behind the first innings deficit, with eight second innings wickets in hand. Vishual Singh and Sachin Singh will resume today on six and four respectively.Meanwhile, the clash between Lower Corentyne and Essequibo at Albion ground saw Ricardo Adams hitting 145 in Essequibo’s total of 274. Lower Corentyne ended the day on 62-3, still training by 152 runs.West Berbice were bowled out for 93, replying to Upper Corentyne first innings total 152. Day one between East Coast and West Demerara at Wales Community Centre ground, was washed out.Play resume at all four venues today at 9:30hrs.last_img read more

As Syracuse advances deeper into the NCAA Tournament, will Syracuse win a national championship?

first_img Published on March 24, 2010 at 12:00 pm Comments Remember that time Syracuse was playing Gonzaga and the feisty Bulldog attack was supposed to expose a planet-sized hole in the Orange’s game plan after Rick Jackson committed his third foul?  Yeah, me neither.The truth is, Syracuse chugged along Saturday with its biggest weakness exposed, flapping behind it like a loose bumper on the highway, begging for the well-equipped Zags to take a stab at it. And 30 minutes later, Wes Johnson and company were still rolling, ignoring the ‘check engine’ light and plowing through their second-round matchup. It should have been a distraction, or at least a bump along the way, but the Orange ended up winning the game by 22 — the Bulldogs just another blurry vision in the rearview mirror.It has been the same story all year. We all thought Syracuse would eventually slip up. It never did. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt’s that kind of resilience that shows why Syracuse will win the national championship. ‘We took it amongst ourselves to go out there and play hard,’ Johnson said. ‘We’re coming off the two-game losing streak and winning the previous game with Vermont. We came here and played our game of basketball. That was the main thing we were trying to do.’ The story last Sunday was supposed to be about life without injured center Arinze Onuaku and moving on without the ‘seven-starter’ rotation that had gotten Syracuse to the Big Dance in the first place. But by day’s end, all the chatter was about how dynamic Johnson played, how freshman point guard Brandon Triche appears more confident than ever, and how Andy Rautins continues to keep his team humble and emotionally under control. The game showed that Syracuse wasn’t mired in a funk following the Big East tournament, just as it showed that SU wasn’t just a polished clunker with no horsepower like some of its conference counterparts. ‘Syracuse basketball is about being ready to play and being consistent,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. ‘We’re usually ready to play.’It has gotten to the point where this isn’t really that much of a bold statement. Forget Bracketology, how Syracuse fares against mid-majors or its record west of the Mississippi.The reason Syracuse is primed for a national championship is because of moments like the ones Sunday against Gonzaga. It has been right in front of our eyes the whole time. Throughout the season, there were a million occurrences when the Orange was expected to fail and it proved everybody wrong. North Carolina was supposed to be too tall, too physical for Syracuse in November. Cornell was pegged as the quintessential trap game, the ideal opportunity for SU to come crashing back down to earth before the conference schedule started. With a banged-up Johnson, Syracuse was supposed to struggle against Villanova in front of a sold-out Dome, just like it was against Georgetown down in D.C. And when facing Gonzaga, the Orange was supposed to struggle without one half of its two-headed frontcourt monster. The team has been hearing these doubts, these second guesses since Midnight Madness, and it’s getting to the point where Syracuse deserves the benefit of the doubt. If there’s a leak in the frontcourt, it’s more than likely they’ll fix it. If the opposition has better guard play, chances are SU will be able to game plan around it. It’s the same thing the team’s been doing all year. ‘We try to play with a chip on our shoulder whenever we go out there,’ sophomore guard Scoop Jardine said. ‘It was a team that was doubted in the beginning of the year. Every time we go out there we try to take it one game at a time and play Syracuse basketball. ‘Coming into the Tournament, we had lost two games straight. People kind of turned their heads. Then we lost Arinze Onuaku. We knew it was a good team all year and we could stick together and just play basketball.’And now, as Syracuse begins the final drive toward another Final Four, there’s going to be a whole new set of doubts and concerns. What will SU do if Butler gets red hot from beyond the 3-point arc? How will it contain Kansas State’s Jacob Pullen in the Elite Eight? Will Evan Turner or John Wall take over and crush the dream in Indianapolis? At this point, we might now know a little better. Think about the last time you doubted Syracuse this season and remember what happened. Odds will say 30 out of 34 times you were better off ignoring it and trusting in the team that has defied all of our expectations.

Syracuse University hopes to build new Carrier Dome roof over old one

first_imgJustin Mattingly | Editor in ChiefNext draftA revised draft of the Framework will be presented to the SU community in January 2017, Sala said. That will come after a feedback phase in October-November and a review by the Campus Framework Advisory Committee in November-December.Disclaimer: The Daily Orange leases a house on Ostrom Avenue owned by Syracuse University. As part of the long-term Campus Framework implementation, the university has proposed building student housing on Ostrom Avenue where The Daily Orange currently operates. Comments Syracuse University may not have to move any home football or basketball games as a result of the upcoming Carrier Dome renovations by building the new Dome roof over the current one.In an update on the university’s infrastructure given Tuesday, SU Vice President and Chief Campus Facilities Officer Pete Sala said the university is in a “good place” when it comes to finding a plan to renovate the Dome roof, which has been the source of much debate and discussion since SU announced its intentions to renovate the campus fixture. Sala said the goal is to build the new roof over the old roof and added that Dome renovations are still “very conceptual.”The plan for the roof and its timetable have not been publicly revealed. SU announced in May that Dome roof renovations are expected to cost about $105 million with another $100 million in other improvements.The decision to replace the Dome roof was years in the making and intensified in the winter of 2014. In that time, the city and university formed a task force to look into an SU stadium. Those conversations died, however, and the university turned internal with the Campus Framework to look into the Dome renovations.The Framework is a 20-year roadmap for SU’s infrastructure and is one of three parts of Chancellor Kent Syverud’s Fast Forward initiative.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSala added in his presentation that Dome renovations are three pricing projects — the roof, the interior and the exterior. He mentioned that there’s the possibility of a bump out — a glass-based addition shown in presented renderings — to the exterior of the Dome.The update Tuesday was the first of six such presentations that will be given in the next two months. They come after summer construction updates and scrutinized communication over the University Place Promenade — the first major project of the Framework — in the spring.The next Framework update meeting will be Saturday at 11 a.m. in the 001 auditorium in the Life Sciences Complex. Five other Framework forums will be held throughout the semester in addition to four construction information sessions.Here are other noteworthy updates given Tuesday.Schine Student CenterThe 30-year-old Schine Student Center is set to be renovated as part of the Campus Framework. Sala said Tuesday that donor involvement is going to shape what’s next when it comes to the renovations of the student center.The loading docks in the back of Schine will also be removed as part of the plan.Sheraton parking garageThe renderings provided Tuesday displayed a new building where the Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel and Conference Center parking garage currently stands. The university doesn’t know what the building will be, Sala said, but commented that the parking garage is an “eyesore.”The university owns the Sheraton and as part of the Framework, plans to convert it into student housing to go along with the major goal of moving all student housing onto Main Campus.“The Arch”Updated renderings of “The Arch,” a renovated Archbold Gymnasium, were part of the presentation. The university plans to start construction on the gymnasium in December, Sala said.

Syracuse men’s basketball’s Tyler Lydon named to All-ACC preseason 2nd team

first_img Published on October 26, 2016 at 4:46 pm Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse sophomore forward Tyler Lydon was named to the Atlantic Coast Conference’s preseason second team, the conference announced Wednesday afternoon.Lydon came off the bench in all 37 games for Syracuse last season. He averaged 10.1 points per game, 6.3 rebounds per game and 30.3 minutes per game. Lydon shot 40.5 percent from 3 and 48 percent from the field as a freshman. His 67 blocked shots were third most by a freshman in school history. The Orange was 16-4 when he scored 10 or more points in a game.In the NCAA Tournament, Lydon made several key plays late in games to keep Syracuse’s season alive. He scored 51 points in five games in the tournament and displayed his defensive ability with six blocks against Middle Tennessee, six against Gonzaga and five against Virginia.“He’ll be very important,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said of Lydon at the team’s media day on Friday. “He’ll probably start at the 3 and he’ll probably play some 4 and play some 5. Sometimes he’s one of the few players that I would ever let try to do that. In fact, he’s probably the only player I’ve let play those three positions and he can do it.”Here’s a look at the ACC’s full preseason first and second teams (votes in parenthesis).AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFirst TeamGrayson Allen, Duke (87, POY)Jaron Blossomgame, Clemson (70)Joel Berry II, North Carolina (45)London Perrantes, Virginia (36)Dennis Smith, Jr., NC State (34)Second TeamJustin Jackson, North Carolina (22)Jayson Tatum, Duke (21)Tyler Lydon, Syracuse (20)Dwayne Bacon, Florida State (16)Michael Young, Pitt (14) Commentslast_img read more

Men’s tennis battles through rebuilding year

first_imgAlthough the youthful Wisconsin squad struggled throughout the season, Greg Van Emburgh looks forward to the team’s future.[/media-credit]Coming off of a record-setting season, the 2010-11 Wisconsin men’s tennis team had big shoes to fill. In 2010, the University of Wisconsin was selected to enter the NCAA tournament for the fourth straight season, a school-record, and managed to make it to its first-ever sweet 16 appearance.When the 2011 season started, head coach Greg Van Emburgh knew it was going to be a rebuilding year for his young team. The Badgers went from three seniors and three freshmen on their 2009-10 roster to a 2010-11 season where the team was predominantly freshmen.The lack of experience seemed to be the Badger’s achilles’ heel.In January, the Badgers began their season with two wins and three losses before losing their first conference match against Minnesota, the team that would end their season months later in the Big Ten Tournament.After its first conference match, Wisconsin seemed to hit a high note with two wins against Marquette and UIC, 6-1 and 7-0, respectively. However, the happiness was short lived, as the Badgers struggled to continue their winning ways.Throughout the season, consistency seemed to be a major problem for the Badgers as a whole. They would win a game, and then lose two. Lose a game, and then win two. Not once in the season did they win more than two consecutive games.When March rolled around, Wisconsin ended up claiming the No. 6 seed for the Big Ten Tournament. With a win against No. 11 seed Penn State, Wisconsin was able to continue tournament play against No. 3 seed Minnesota. But their tournament play was short-lived, as Wisconsin fell early to its conference rivals.Although they struggled as a team, Marek Michalicka, Billy Bertha, Rodney Carey and Fredrik Ask proved that individually it was a different story.The seven freshmen that played as Badgers this season gained valuable experience that is needed for the success of their future seasons. Two of the freshman, the doubles duo of Carey and Ask, worked their way into the UW system perfectly and ended their season by working their way to the No. 2 doubles slot.Bertha, a sophomore, is known for his passionate, fiery play and will lead next year’s team. Bertha and Michalicka played the entire season at the No. 1 doubles spot and together they gained the lone win of the day in the Big Ten Tournament against Minnesota, ending their season with an 18-5 doubles record together.Whether in doubles play with Bertha or singles play, Michalicka led his team by example with his experience. Optimistic and focused, Michalicka was spoken very highly of during his time at Wisconsin and ended up earning Big Ten honors for his play. His team-high record of 17-6 in the No. 1 singles slot and his 8-2 record in Big Ten play earned him a spot on the first team All-Big Ten team as well as the recognition of being a Badgers’ Big Ten sportsmanship honoree.While his time at the UW is coming to a close, Michalicka’s tennis career is still booming. On Tuesday, the NCAA selection show aired and Michalicka looked to get his third-straight NCAA singles berth. Ranked No. 57 in the nation, UW’s senior captain got what he wanted and was selected as one of 64 singles players to compete in the 2011 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Tennis Championships.Although the season has come to a close, with such a young team, you haven’t seen the last of many of these Badgers. Van Emburgh is proud of his team and how far it has come and looks forward to his growing future with such a young team.last_img read more

Syracuse dominates Florida State, 30-7; SU gets first win over FSU in 52 years

first_imgStanding in the locker room after Syracuse’s 30-7 win over Florida State, Dino Babers reflected on 1966, the last time Syracuse beat Florida State. Floyd Little rushed for 193 yards and three touchdowns in his last game in Archbold Stadium.“The last time it happened the Beatles were hot. The last time it happened the 66 Mustang was the baddest thing on the road,” Babers said before pausing and letting his head down for a moment. “Because I’m telling you now you just put yourself on the map. You took a bunch of non-believers and all the sudden they’ve got a lot to learn.”Similar speeches from Babers were shown after the 2016 win over Virginia Tech and last year’s upset against Clemson. But after the best defensive performance in conference play under Babers, the celebration came for different reasons.In Syracuse’s (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) most lopsided Atlantic Coast Conference victory since 2014, it held FSU (1-2, 0-2) to 62 yards rushing and 240 total yards of offense. That’s more than 200 yards less than SU allowed on average last season and more than 50 percent lower than it’s 2016 average. The Syracuse defense, which has ranked in the bottom quarter of the country each of the last two seasons, tallied four sacks and an interception while allowing one Florida State third-down conversion.The Seminoles had struggled this season, but not like this. In their first two games of the season, against No. 13 Virginia Tech and Samford, FSU eclipsed 300 yards of total of offense. Deondre Francois threw more than 230 in both games.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn Syracuse’s opening conference game of 2018, against a team which has won three conference championships in the last seven years, the Orange flipped the narrative.“This performance show’s a lot of growth from the team where we were two years ago and even last year,” Defensive end Kendall Coleman said. “It means everything going forward because this is going to be major in establishing who we are this season.”With just more than a minute remaining in the first half, Coleman rushed off the left side of the line and beat the left tackle inside before collapsing on Deondre Francois’ ankles. Coleman’s sack, his first of two on the day, was a culmination of defensive line pressure throughout the first half.Francois, who completed eight passes for 70 yards in the first half, finished most passing plays on his back. On the second play from scrimmage, Francois was hit as he threw. Chris Slayton smacked Francois from behind and the pass dribbled incomplete.The next series, Florida State set up in an empty backfield, leaving little protection for Francois. Slayton ran in again. Francois let the pass fly and Slayton drove him into the ground.In the second quarter, a short Francois pass proved more costly for Florida State. With FSU still scoreless, defensive back Christopher Fredrick trailed his receiver on a vertical route with safety help above him. Fredrick noted that he’d seen Francois throw the ball in a line drive motion as opposed to lofting it on longer routes. What Fredrick saw on film happened, the ball came in low and behind the receiver and ended up in Fredrick’s, not an FSU player’s hands.“It was pretty visible that he was feeling us,” Coleman said. “Francois felt the pressure and that helped us in the passing game down the field with our coverage.”In years past Syracuse’s defense had been its Achilles heel. In 2017, Syracuse allowed more than 340 yards to Miami, Louisiana State and FSU, all three of which were games Syracuse played within a score deep into the fourth quarter. In Babers first season with SU, Syracuse allowed 454 yards of offense to a Willie Taggart coached South Florida team in a 45-20 SU loss which started SU 1-2 on the year.On Saturday, Taggart’s offense didn’t resemble the Bulls offense of 2016. The first year head coach wanted his team to move fast offensively but never strung enough plays together to do so.Repeated offensive line errors proved costly for FSU. On a third down in the third quarter, with FSU still scoreless, Kingsley Jonathan crashed down on Francois from behind while Chris Slayton sandwiched Francois from his front side.Jonathan ran out of the pile of players and stood alone in the middle of the field around the 30-yard line. He stomped, lurking like a slender man type creature. He paused, stood proud and took in the roars.“It was not trickery,” Babers said. “It was just guys lining up and whooping the guy in front of them.”After the game, Taggart reflected on a 1-2 start in his first season as the FSU head coach. He was asked about a shifting offensive line which has rotated 10 players through three games. People questioned his approach.In the Syracuse locker room, almost exactly two years after the USF loss, Babers and his players celebrated.“I don’t think it was an upset at all,” Senior defensive end Alton Robinson said. “The better team won tonight.” Comments Published on September 15, 2018 at 3:55 pm Contact Josh: [email protected] | @Schafer_44center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Kevin Durant: Lakers are “couple years away from where I wanted to be”

first_imgMeanwhile, the Lakers have a promising young roster headlined by D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Brandon Ingram, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. Yet, skepticism remains on how quickly the Lakers can rebuild considering both the team’s youth and finishing the last two seasons with its worst records in franchise history. Nonetheless, Durant’s apathy toward the Lakers arguably validates his contention that Kobe Bryant received unfair criticism about his presence deterring free agents. Concerns arose about the size of Bryant’s contract (two years, $48 million), his durability (three season-ending injuries in recent years) and personality. Yet, Bryant played a factor in the Lakers landing a meeting with Carmelo Anthony and nearly convincing Pau Gasol to stay. LaMarcus Aldridge reportedly found Bryant’s talk one of the few positives out of a meeting he believed centered too much on business opportunities instead of basketball. Although Dwight Howard clashed with Bryant during their lone season together in 2012-13, Howard also left because of the team’s rebuilding direction and philosophical differences with former coach Mike D’Antoni.“I just like having the back of our players in this league,” Durant said, referring toward defending Bryant. “It’s a brotherhood and I respect every guy in this league. So you can’t get me to talk to you about anybody else in a negative manner.” Plenty have talked about Durant in a negative manner ever since leaving the Thunder for the Warriors. LAS VEGAS >> The Lakers chased another star. Once again, that star ran away. This time, the reasons had nothing to do with personality conflicts with teammates, salary or a poor sales pitch in its meeting. Kevin Durant did not grant the Lakers a meeting at all namely because he figured it would be a waste of time. “Nothing against the Lakers, but I already had my mind set on who I wanted to talk to,” Durant said following practice with the U.S. Olympic team on Monday at UNLV. “I really respect their team. I just thought they were a couple years away from where I wanted to be.”Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder for Golden State, a move that on paper could make the Warriors seemingly unstoppable. They have two sharp shooters (Steph Curry, Klay Thompson), versatile forwards (Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala) and an innovative coach (Steve Kerr). TNT analysts Charles Barkley and Reggie Miller became the most vocal, arguing Durant took the easy way toward pursuing an NBA title after failing to win one in Oklahoma City through 10 seasons. Although the Warriors lost the NBA Finals in seven games to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State set an NBA record for most regular-season wins (73). “I chose my own path,” Durant said. “They had their careers and they did what they wanted to do. I respect the hell out of Reggie Miller and Charles Barkley.”Durant also stressed he respects Thunder guard Russell Westbrook. Although Durant admits he has not spoken to him leaving Oklahoma City, he dismissed reports that Westbrook’s presence as a dominant scorer partly factored into leaving. “I just made a decision based on where I wanted to go,” Durant said. “It’s just simple. This is where I wanted to play basketball.”Durant also considered playing basketball for the Clippers and Boston Celtics, which featured Patriots quarterback Tom Brady as part of their pitch. Durant admitted “it was great to be in the presence of greatness.” Durant then added, “I couldn’t let that distract me.”Neither did the ensuing criticism as Durant enters the 2016-17 season as the league’s villain. So much that he has not sought out advice from LeBron James, who experienced a backlash after leaving Cleveland for Miami in 2010 before eventually winning two NBA titles and returning in 2014 to the Cavaliers. “When you make decisions based on everyone else, I think that’s the wrong decision. I can’t make a decision on my life because everybody else is going to be upset about it,” Durant said. “I just told myself to put me first and think about what I wanted. This is what I wanted.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

New guard recruited Pitt, not the other way around

first_imgPITTSBURGH (AP)—Most major college basketball players are recruited by multiple schools. Chase Adams landed at Pitt after recruiting the Panthers. When Centenary dropped from NCAA Division I to Division III, Adams went looking for a program that fit his skills.Last season’s Summit League defensive player of the year wanted to play on a team that valued defense. He also sought to move up to a higher level, but not have to sit the bench. He also wanted a team that needed an experienced guard—now.Whenever he went down his checklist, Pitt landed on top.“I did my research, I contacted Pittsburgh and sent stuff out to a couple of schools and I was able to make this transition,” said Adams, who doesn’t have to sit out a season because of his former school’s downgrade. “This is the best situation I could ever want.”Some players might be intimidated at moving up from what was the nation’s smallest Division I program to a school that was ranked No. 1 for a time last season. Adams is certain he can make the transition, and in a hurry.He must, since he is a senior and this will be his only Big East season.Curiously, what he is trying to achieve at Pitt, which has about 33,000 students, is similar to what he was trying to get done at Centenary, which had fewer than 900 students.There, he sought to get noticed on a team that gets little national attention. At Pitt, he’s trying to help a team that was gutted by graduation not get overwhelmed in one of college basketball’s toughest conferences.Pitt lost its top three players—NBA second-round picks DeJuan Blair and Sam Young and point guard Levance Fields—plus starting forward Tyrell Biggs. The Panthers also will be without their lone returning starter, injured guard Jermaine Dixon, plus forward Gilbert Brown, who is academically ineligible until late next month, when the season starts Friday against Wofford.Pitt is starting over, much like Adams is doing in his career.“It’s a major step,” said Adams, who is from Baltimore. “We were the smallest D-I school in the nation and there you’re fighting for respect. We’re going to be fighting for respect this year because people are going to be counting us out. This is the big-time and the big level.”Adams isn’t big—he’s 5-10—but he’s shown coach Jamie Dixon during practice he can be a lockdown defender much like Jermaine Dixon, one of the Big East’s top defensive players last season.Adams also has surprised Pitt with his outside shooting. He shot 40 percent from 3-point range last season, and could help Pitt fill what seems to be a yearly need for a reliable long-range shooter.“I’m going to bring a lot of intensity, a lot of patience on the offensive end—and I shoot pretty well,” Adams said. “Competitiveness, that’s the main thing.”Jamie Dixon welcomes that.Once Jermaine Dixon’s broken right foot heals, Adams will join Dixon, Ashton Gibbs, Brad Wanamaker and redshirt freshman Travon Woodall in a crowded backcourt. Adams doesn’t plan on sitting, not with so much to do in so little time.“This is it for me,” Adams said. “This is my shot.”last_img read more

Strangers donate kidneys to each other’s parents

first_imgIt was 28-year-old Tiffany’s decision to turn it down so a third victim of renal disease could get a transplant. Acceptance would have dissolved the swap, though Tiffany said she would have donated her kidney to Stella either way. “A lot of people would take that kidney and run,” Veale said. “Tiffany said: `No way. I don’t want Mrs. Williams not to have a kidney.’ This stranger out there who got that kidney is now eating pizza and traveling.” About 5,000 people in Los Angeles and 16,000 statewide are awaiting kidney transplants. In 70 percent of those cases, donors have come forward, but their organs don’t match. UCLA’s kidney transplant team hopes this first local cross-match will ignite more living-donor swaps, Veale said. “We hope this kind of program will develop across the city and eventually the country to share kidneys,” said Dr. Albin Gritsch, the program’s surgical director. Veale said the costs of the four surgeries hadn’t been tabulated, but he noted that with living donors, expenses fall. Kazuyuki Furuya joked with reporters: “This is your tax dollars at its best.” It was tough for the Furuya family of Santa Clarita to watch Kazuyuki’s reliance on grueling dialysis, a three- to four-hour, three-day-a-week treatment to remove waste from the bloodstream when the kidneys won’t. With no donor on the horizon, Tiffany, an engineer, offered hers. “My dad had been waiting for a kidney for almost six years,” she said. “We saw his health decline. It was pretty difficult to watch him.” Stella Williams, 51, was just two months on dialysis after falling ill to kidney disease. “I knew I couldn’t do it the rest of my life,” she said. “I felt like a prisoner. I felt my husband was a prisoner.” Her own daughter’s kidney was a match, but the younger woman became pregnant and could not donate, so both Jason and his brother offered to help their stepmother. “As soon as I heard about it, I just wanted to see what I could do,” Jason said. “I knew she needed it more than I did.” Stella, from Victorville, and Jason, 24, who lives in Upland and works in his father’s construction business, spoke briefly of a rough relationship erased by their new bond. She hugged her stepson and fought back tears speaking of his gift to her that was waylaid to a man he had never met and how she is now living with Tiffany’s organ. “It’s a big thing, it’s a big decision he had to make,” she said. “We’ve had a rough go of it, but we’ve both learned. He’s grown into a wonderful man. He’s someone we can rely on, be proud of. He gave of himself.” The two families, bonded for life by the sacrifices of their children, said they planned to keep in touch. Right now, however, the focus is on healing. “I’m a little sore, but other than that I feel really good,” Tiffany said, explaining the minimally invasive laproscopic surgery for donors. “It’s pretty crazy. They took an organ out of me just a week ago, five days ago.” All but Kazuyuki Furuya are on their feet. Yet he joined his daughter and their new family in looking to a return to normal, saying, “I’d like to get on with the rest of my life.” [email protected] (661) 257-5251160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! When her father needed a kidney transplant, Tiffany Furuya stepped forward and offered one of her own. And Jason Williams, who admitted a rocky relationship with his stepmother, never hesitated when she, too, needed an organ donor. Disappointing news followed, though, when both learned their kidneys weren’t matches. But in a heartwarming twist for two seriously ill patients, UCLA doctors found a surprising cross-match. “By coincidence, Tiffany matched Jason’s mother, and Jason matched Tiffany’s father,” said Dr. Jeffrey Veale, director of the paired kidney donation program at the University of California, Los Angeles, Medical Center. The surgeries were performed Thursday, and all four patients are out of the hospital, facing lives touched by strangers in the first-ever “living donor kidney swap” at UCLA. On Tuesday, amid hugs and some tears, the tale unfolded of strangers whose lives intertwined when Tiffany’s kidney proved a match for Stella Williams and Jason’s for Kazuyuki Furuya. “He’s my son, a son that I never had,” said Kazuyuki, seated in a wheelchair but set for release from the hospital that afternoon. “I’ll take as many dads as I can have,” Jason said. “He’s a good guy.” Adding to the magic of the moment, doctors told of a cadaver kidney that had become available for the elder Furuya, a 61-year-old software engineer, who had made his way to the top of the transplant waiting list. last_img

Prison island to tropical paradise

first_imgFrom Ibo Island you can sail by dhow to have lunch on an offshore sandbar. The ramparts of Ibo Island’s Fort of São João Batista, which variously served as a Portuguese military bastion, a slave house and a prison. Inside the fort, a silversmith continues the island’s long tradition of intricate craftwork. Ibo is one of those places that constantly feels like it’s falling down – as if its buildings are crumbling into the sand and the sea. (Images: Chris Thurman) MEDIA CONTACTS • Ibo Island Lodge +27 21 702 0285 [email protected] RELATED ARTICLES • A holiday – in Zimbabwe? • The adventure starts here • Wandering the Whale Trail• Scuba-diving South AfricaChris ThurmanThe old fort is full of intriguing sense data. Walking past one doorway, you hear the clang of metal beating metal and the murmur of voices; through another, you catch a glimpse of a man bringing a fire to life with the bellows of his lungs. The smoke mixes with the salty-stale smell of the ocean blowing in over the ramparts.Outside, the sun that has flaked the paint on the walls beats down on your skin, and you seek shade under the canopy of the lone tree in the whitewashed courtyard.Nowadays the Fort of São João Batista, or St John the Baptist, on the shore of Ibo Island off the coast of northern Mozambique is a pleasant place, occupied by a cohort of silversmiths producing finely-wrought jewellery. But for most of its more than 200-year history, the fort was a site of violence and oppression: the clanging sounds would have come from shackles and iron bars, the smoke would have risen from guns and canons, the voices would have been screams and moans.The fort was built by the Portuguese in 1791 as a military bastion to ward off the Dutch, from whom they had wrested control of the Mozambican trade routes, after ousting Arab traders from the region some two centuries before that. It subsequently served as a slave house and then a prison in which many of those who opposed colonial rule were detained and tortured.Its star-shaped, pentagonal building is the most recognisable structure on Ibo. It is the island’s most potent symbol, with its changing fortunes mirroring the shifting historical tides shaping life on the island.Ibo is part of the Quirimbas archipelago, some 27 islands that form part of Mozambique’s Quirimbas National Park. While a strategically significant location for Portugal’s imperial ambitions, the archipelago remained isolated and developed its own particular cultural flavour.As with the rest of Mozambique, Portuguese is a lingua franca, but locals greet each other with “Salama”, a linguistic reminder that there was an Arab settlement on Ibo in the 12th century. Arab and Chinese trading posts were established along the coastline of the mainland as early as 600 AD.Ibo is one of those places that constantly feels like it’s falling down – as if its buildings are crumbling into the sand and the sea. Nowhere is this more evident than in the ghostly streets of what used to be the island’s wealthy areas, which are lined with the hollow shells of houses that were abandoned overnight when the post-independence government effectively expelled all “foreigners” in 1975.This lends the island an evocative charm, but, of course, such slow degeneration is only romantic to temporary sojourners and holidaymakers. For those who live on Ibo, the lack of socioeconomic opportunity is a serious problem.Yet the island’s great appeal to adventurous travellers is also its salvation. The Quirimbas are an exquisitely beautiful natural formation: warm azure seas, dazzling coral reefs, abundant sea life – a tropical paradise. Some of the islands are uninhabited or privately owned. Not so on Ibo, where the permanent population numbers some 4 000 – and the jobs available are limited.For this reason, the silversmiths’ combined workshop and showroom at the fort is a welcome intervention. While the artisan-artists there are simply continuing an ancient Ibo tradition of producing fine metalwork, the growth of jewellery production and the employment it provides is largely the work Fiona and Kevin Record, the owners of Ibo Island Lodge.When they first sailed into the harbour at Ibo some 15 years ago, the Records did not plan to stay for long. But the magic of the place soon captured them, and they decided to settle on Ibo and open the lodge.This was a huge logistical challenge, but the beautifully understated coral-and-limestone lodge buildings Fiona and Kevin renovated are testimony to their determination. Since then, they’ve profited from bringing visitors to the island, but have also worked to create jobs for the people of Ibo.“Part of Ibo’s charm was that it had fallen into decline, and harboured a history, culture and marine world totally unexplored,” says Fiona. “The area’s pristine beauty and the hospitality of the local people had a profound effect on us. We made a commitment to create a tourism project that would positively affect the lives of the impoverished community on Ibo.”The silversmith venture is just one of the Records’ initiatives. In addition to employing 40 staff, each of whom supports an estimated 20 other people, the lodge is the centre of numerous community schemes providing both income and development opportunities. There is a Montessori school for the island’s children, as well as an adult education facility that teaches English and tourism awareness, as well as training in conservation, gardening and guiding.Creating jobs also helps protect the local environment. The more jobs there are that don’t depend on fishing, the better for the increasingly overtaxed marine life of this World Heritage Site.Along with a host of impossibly-coloured fish, underwater life in the Quirimbas includes a variety of turtles, sharks and rays. They, like the birds overhead that are an equally vital part of the ecosystem (there are 10 red-listed species in the Ibo area), are threatened by the sheer numbers of people whose livelihood is fishing.Given all of this, Ibo Island Lodge offers guests something that most accommodation establishments cannot.Yes, there are the bright and richly-furnished rooms, and the veranda view between palms and bougainvillea blossoms out to sea. Activities include kayaking through mangroves, snorkelling and dhow sailing, while low tide brings an opportunity to have lunch on a sandbar surrounded by nothing but crystal blue ocean. And each day ends with sundowners on the roof, listening to the deep beat of humpback whales striking their tail-fins against the surface of the water.As gratifying as any of these, though, is the sense that a visit to Ibo is not a one-sided affair in which only the tourist benefits. As much as 50% of the island’s population is positively affected by the presence of Ibo Island Lodge. Now that’s responsible tourism.last_img read more

All-Electric vs. Natural Gas

first_imgThink twice about a heat-pump water heaterAs load management on the grid becomes more sophisticated, consumers may reap some financial rewards from “smart” or “grid-aware” appliances, suggests Dana Dorsett. Plus, conventional water heaters are simpler in design and have fewer moving parts than heat-pump water heaters (HPWHs), making them a potentially better investment.The wild card in this equation is whether ERCOT (the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which manages the regional grid) can offer financial incentives to homeowners.“So far, ERCOT doesn’t have a capacity market to bid into, but high value frequency and voltage stabilization services are there,” Dorsett says. “One such aggregator operating large fleets of residential water heaters as a ‘virtual power plant’ in the PJM grid region is Mosaic Power.”Because Texas has some of the most creative electricity markets in the country, Dorsett says, someone will be figuring out a way to make money with aggregated distributed resources.If Markus does choose a heat-pump water heater, Dorsett adds, he would be better off installing it in a conditioned attic rather than in the garage.“Installing the HPWH in the conditioned attic is better from a whole-house efficiency point of view than putting it in the garage,” Dorsett says. “A better-than-code house with a high SEER cooling system in Houston will have excess latent load to deal with. Installing the HPWH in the attic, inside the pressure boundary of the house, reduces the latent load, directly converting it to sensible heat inside the insulated tank, whereas a dehumidifier delivers it as sensible heat into the room air, raising the cooling load.” Given a photovoltaic system with a capacity of as much as 8 kilowatts, does it make any sense to include natural gas appliances in a new house, or would an all-electric design be more practical?That’s the question Markus ponders as he plans a new house in Houston, Texas. Although he has natural gas service in the house where he currently lives, the size of his new rooftop solar system could prompt a change of heart.“It will probably be a ‘Pretty Good’ house — dense-packed cellulose and exterior rigid foam insulation with an encapsulated attic and targeting an ach50 of less than 3 with an ERV system for ventilation,” Markus writes in a Q&A post at Green Building Advisor. “I will have a sizable PV array on the roof — 6 to 8 kW — so I have been debating whether to use natural gas as in my current house for multiple appliances or go all-electric.”Markus finds both pluses and minuses with an all-electric design. The benefits include avoiding a monthly $25 charge for gas; better air quality without the risk of backdrafting; the chance to use an induction range for cooking; using a heat-pump water heater to help cool the attic or garage; and not having to run gas lines around the house. RELATED ARTICLES Our expert’s opinionGBA technical director Peter Yost adds these thoughts:Great discussion, and the sidebar points to some equally useful past GBA articles for this topic. Just a few additional points from me:All-electric vs. incorporating natural gas: Moving electrons around in a house just seems inherently easier and safer to me; eliminating open-combustion devices is always a wise choice. And with grid-tied PV, those moving electrons are literally a mobile and self-regulating currency for all your energy needs.Long-term performance of heat-pump water heaters: How many times have HPWHs been introduced to the marketplace? How complicated is it to assess their performance? Should a heat pump be dedicated solely to producing domestic hot water? I sure hope that this time around that HPWH energy performance and service life rise to the occasion, but even if I lived in a mild climate, I would be putting my dollars, time, and head-scratching in other parts of the building.Induction cooking performance: I am not a chef or even a day-to-day cook, but it would be nice to put this issue to rest. For more on that, see these articles on induction cooking: from The New York Times; from Treehugger; and from Daily Meal.If we could get every home cook to run a CO2 monitor and hygrometer when they fire up their gas burners, the invisible costs of cooking with gas might become more apparent. That could help make a stronger case for induction cooktops. He does, however, point to a few disadvantages. Markus says electrical equipment is “more complicated and less reliable,” which could mean more repairs, and natural gas would give the house higher resale value. He likes his gas dryer, and points out that an all-electric house might be a problem in the event of a hurricane.“Anything I might have not considered here?” he asks. “Anyone else had to make this choice in a cooling-driven climate? Anyone had bad experience with reliability of newer electrical units vs. natural gas ones?” Those are the questions for this Q&A Spotlight. Electrical equipment is not necessarily problematicGBA senior editor Martin Holladay commends Markus for his analysis, but he thinks Markus is off base in believing that electrical equipment is more prone to breakdowns than equipment using gas.“It’s simply untrue that ‘electrical equipment is more complicated and less reliable’ than gas equipment,” Holladay writes. “I’ve had a balky gas-fired tankless water heater from Bosch that has driven me crazy for years — it has a pilot light that doesn’t want to stay lit. Makes me wish I had a dumb-as-a-rock electric-resistance water heater.”Nor does Holladay understand Markus’s preference for a gas clothes dryer. After all, Holladay says, “when you open the door, the clothes are dry, no matter which fuel was used to dry them.”There is another reason that an all-electric design is sensible, Holladay says: “Green builders who look at our current climate crisis, and who want to be part of a global transition away from fossil fuels, generally lean toward all-electric homes equipped with PV.” Installing gas as a hedgeAnon3 thinks Markus should go ahead and run gas lines even if he has no intention of using natural gas. If natural gas lines are installed, the house will be worth more as a resale. “Just don’t use it yourself,” Anon3 says.Gas will not only make the house more valuable, Anon3 says, but it’s difficult to add after the house has been built. “The inability to have a gas oven can often be a deal-killer for high-end homes,” he says. “If this is a $100,000 house, you don’t have to worry about this, people expect electric-only at this price point.”John Clark agrees: “Gas hookups will expand your pool of potential buyers, especially if they don’t want the PV array on the roof,” Clark says.Stephen Sheehy thinks otherwise. “I disagree with Anon,” Sheehy writes. “For resale, people want to be comfortable. They are less likely to care about what fuel keeps them comfortable. Skip the cost of running gas pipes all over the place and build a nice tight house, well insulated, heated and cooled with efficient heat pumps.“Just my opinion,” Sheehy continues, “but I think it makes no sense to spend money installing features you don’t want, because some future buyer might want them. If it makes sense to use minisplits for heat and AC, installing ductwork for future gas heating, cooling, and cooking doesn’t make sense.”Malcolm Taylor adds that people buy houses for a variety of reasons, but he can’t imagine a buyer passing up an otherwise attractive house because it didn’t allow switching energy sources in the future. “I bet the absence of a walk-in closet in the master bedroom has more effect on the marketability of a house than gas stub-outs,” he says. Not cooking with gasKitchens and kitchen appliances are typically a key selling point in any real estate transaction, but Sheehy doesn’t see any particular advantage to gas ovens or gas ranges.“I’ve never met a cook who prefers a gas oven to electric,” he says. “And once they use an induction cooktop, they all prefer them to gas.”Michael Maines, who has designed a number of high-end kitchens, finds that people who actually cook in their own kitchens prefer electric convection ovens. “They have finer control and more even heat than gas ovens,” he says.Maines also recommends induction cooktops, although he’s had trouble convincing cooks (including his wife) to give up their $1,000+ investments in All-Clad cookware in order to save $10 or $20 on energy use in a year.Non-metallic pots and pans won’t work on an induction range, but as Sheehy points out that some All-Clad and its clones will work just fine, as will cast iron. (All-Clad’s MC2 line is not magnetic, Maines adds, so the test that Sheehy suggests is probably good advice: “If a magnet sticks to it, it’ll work.”) Heat-Pump Water Heaters Come of AgeAll About Water HeatersGoing High-Tech With an Induction CooktopThe Hazards of Cooking With GasNatural Gas — Not as Green as it Used to BeThe Pretty Good Houselast_img read more

Nigeria’s 100m gold medallist flunks dope test at CWG: report

first_imgThe Commonwealth Games was on Monday rocked by its first doping case when Nigerian women’s 100m gold medallist Osayemi Oludamola tested positive for a banned stimulant.Commonwealth Games Federation chief Michael Fennell announced on Monday morning that Osayemi tested positive for methylhaxaneamine and her ‘B’ sample test and hearing will be held later on Monday.”I regret to announce that a positive dope case has come out. Nigeria’s Osayemi Oludamola has tested positive for methylhexaneamine and under anti-doping rules of the Games, she has been handed a provisional suspension,” Fennell said at his customary media conference.”Under anti-doping procedures she has been notified and she has requested for a ‘B’ sample testing. The ‘B’sample testing will be done today and her hearing will also be held today,” he added.Asked whether the gold medal has been taken back from the Nigerian, the CGF chief said, “At the moment no decision has been taken about the medal. She has been put under provisional suspension.”Oludamola was handed gold after Australian Sally Pearson was stripped of her medal in a controversial 100m dash on Thursday for a false start. The Nigerian had crossed the finish line in second place behind the Aussie woman.Fennell said the CGF wants the Games to be clean and would take “appropriate action” under anti-doping rules.”We have taken 950 dope tests (against 1,500 targeted) and so around 700 results have come. We are very transparent and upfront in dealing with doping cases.”At the same time there is also need to keep secrecy until the athlete is notified under anti-doping rules. We have done that and we regret any dope positive case whether the event is high profile or not. We want a clean Games and clean sports,” he said.advertisementAsked if the dope case will damage the image of the Games, he said, “But I don’t know about any damage which would accrue to the Games by the dope case. We are very vigilant, testing and laboratory analysis will be of highest standard,” he added.Organising Committee Secretary General Lalit Bhanot said action would be taken if any athlete is found guilty of doping.”We want a dope free Games and that is why we had done 1,500 tests. If anybody is caught doping, action will be taken under anti-doping rules. This will also give a message to others that doping cannot be condoned,” Bhanot said.The Athletics Federation of Nigeria has said the positive result is the result of the prescription medication she took for a toothache.”She took medication for her toothache and we strongly suspect that it was that, which led to her failed drug test,” AFN President Solomon Ogba told Nigerian news site www.vanguardngr.com.last_img read more

Scholes is right, Mourinho’s Man Utd are embarrassing

first_imgIn many ways this was exactly the kind of fixture Manchester United needed. After the week from hell which culminated in a pathetic 3-1 defeat at West Ham on Saturday, the visit of an under-performing Valencia to Old Trafford on Tuesday could have been hand-picked.But their inability to create anything of any note in a tense and tepid 0-0 draw emphasised the state of things right now in M16. Paul Scholes claimed before kick-off that Jose Mourinho’s management of the club had reached “embarrassing” levels, and the events on the pitch will have done nothing to alleviate the pressure on the under-fire Portuguese.For the opening 10 minutes it looked like United were ready to throw everything at the cause, with their attacking tempo being high and their football smart. Yet that quickly evaporated and thereafter United’s performance was lacking in confidence, belief and creativity. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Aside from a couple of moments of individual intent from Marcus Rashford there were few signs that the home side were going to cause serious issues for a Valencia side boasting only one win in eight matches this season. United’s build-up was far too slow, far too predictable, and the result was a bore-fest for much of the night.Things could easily have been worse for them, as Goncalo Guedes proved time and again to have the beating of Antonio Valencia but on almost every occasion he managed to waste the opportunity to cause United serious damage.Right now United need to be much, much better than this. There are rifts in the camp, with the manager barely speaking to many of his players, and all the while the football has become as tedious as at any stage in the 55-year-old’s reign.They needed more than anything to work up the supporters tonight, subsequently generating the kind of vociferous atmosphere which has dragged Manchester United kicking and screaming over the line in many a Champions League night for years gone by. But instead they sucked the life out of the whole occasion.And that is exactly where we are with United at this moment in time. Mourinho is questioning his players’ desire at every turn, the players are questioning the manager’s tactics, and the rest of the world has been forced to pick a side. Add in the fact the game had to be delayed because United arrived late for a home game and the club’s slow slide into the realms of ridiculousness are there for all to see.Michy Batshuayi Chris Smalling Manchester United Valencia UEFA Champions League 02102018All the while, their football is every bit as anxious and uncertain as is every supporter of a red, white and black persuasion.With the likes of Ryan Giggs, Denis Law and David Beckham in attendance this should have been a night to remind the United greats of some of the wonderful Old Trafford nights of yesteryear. Instead, every time they were caught on camera they looked as though they would rather be anywhere else, and their mood reflected that of the whole stadium. As a neutral it was hard not to feel embarrassed on their behalf given the turgid rubbish being served up in front of them.There was a flicker of late drama when Rashford drove a left-wing free-kick onto the far corner of the Valencia woodwork, but like so many United performances of late they never really looked likely to grab a winner.But neither did they really deserve one. When your football is too slow, your passing too indecisive and your every move carrying signs of nervousness, 0-0 draws are about the best you can hope for.This mess is not about to end quickly, and could get far more embarrassing yet.last_img read more

Haryana police takes steps to check eve-teasing

first_imgChandigarh, Apr 24 (PTI) In its bid to check eve-teasing, the Haryana Police has prepared a comprehensive plan, including identifying trouble spots, taking strict actions against mischievous elements and organising activities aimed at empowering women.The police is also partnering with the youth through Youth Against Sexual Harassment (YASH) initiative.Through the initiative, the Haryana Police will encourage the youths to enrol with them and in turn become part of the campaign to prevent incidents of eve-teasing, an official said.”We have put in place a comprehensive programme to stop eve-teasing. The hot spots have been identified. Work to sanitise them by way of warning and cautioning signages, CCTV cameras, plain cloth traps and time-aligned uniformed police patrolling is in progress.”We are also collaborating with schools, colleges, parents, businesses, Panchayats, non-governmental organisations and other government departments to teach girls bravery and boys chivalry through public speaking workshops, adventure and endurance sports and self-defence training. We are very keen to team up with the youths (our natural allies in our fight for making public places safer for women),” Haryana Polices Additional Director General of Police (Headquarters), O P Singh told PTI here today.Speaking about YASH initiative, Singh noted, “We aim to give young boys and girls a platform to voice their opposition to gender-based victimisation. They can make a difference by simply taking a pledge to resist it, speak against it on social media, wear a T-shirt condemning it, spread a word about the seriousness of the problem, organise events to create awareness, alert us about such outrage and so on.advertisementHe said DGP K P Singh had recently addressed Commissioners of Police and SPs through video conferencing for the implementation of the plan to prevent incidents of eve-teasing and crime against women. “We will also encourage young boys and girls to enrol as volunteers by subscribing to our website mahilapolicestation.in. At the rate of 5,000 volunteers per district, we look forward to have some 1,10,000 volunteers onboard in next one month. “They will be guiding our actions to weed out gender-based street violence, usually trivalised as eve-teasing. We will, in turn, train them through online tutorials to be change makers,” Singh said. The ADGP said all women police stations of the state were functional at all district police headquarters as well as their extension centres in sub-divisions. “Over 800 police officials with 130 vehicles work round-the-clock to prevent and detect crimes specific to women. Rolled out in August 2015, these police stations deliver ease of reporting, empathetic listening and prompt action for women victims. So far, the officials have disposed of over 53,000 inquiries and investigated around 4,000 cases,” Singh added. PTI SUN SRYlast_img read more

Andy Murray dumped but not disgraced under Kyle Edmund’s Eastbourne storm

first_imgOn another warm afternoon in Eastbourne, Murray, who turned 31 last month, showed in losing to Kyle Edmund over two decent sets in the second round of the Nature Valley International that most of the components he needs to compete at the highest level are in place. Whether he can reproduce it over five sets in a slam, nobody knows, not even him.He served well enough after a slow start, his backhand slice whirred like a butcher’s blade, he struck some pleasing forehand winners and his movement was satisfactory. But Edmund, whose hard, flat groundstrokes are feared on the circuit, was pretty much in control at the end, and he won 6-4, 6-4 in an hour and 40 minutes.“I feel all right,” Murray said of his body’s reaction to two matches in three days. He said he would probably decide before the draw on Friday morning but would not play an exhibition match. “I don’t feel like I get as much out of them as competitive matches.”He added: “I don’t anticipate any issues from today’s match. With each match I’m trying to gain information about where I’m at physically and where my game is at. Today I was reacting a lot rather than being the one that was dictating on my own serve. They are the sort of things that when you play against the best players, that tells [you] a little bit.“Maybe there are things I can do to improve over the next few days or maybe there are not. I’ll need a little bit more time. There is no risk [to his hip] of me playing tennis just now. It’s just whether I feel like I’m able to do myself justice. I want to be able to compete properly. If I don’t feel like I can do that, then I won’t play. If I do and physically I feel ready, mentally I’m in the right place, then I’ll go for it.”This was, some said, the future of British tennis against the recurring past, but Edmund – who plays Mikhail Kukushkin next – resisted the idea it represented a changing of the guard.

Konta increasingly attempted to force play which particularly suited Wozniacki with the short ball and contributed to unforced errors. She held at 0-40 down to move to 3-4 but eventually proved incapable of resisting when, for the fifth time this year, she lost against one of the world’s leading players after taking the first set.The promising Cameron Norrie, 22, reached the quarter-finals of the men’s competition after defeating fellow Briton Jay Clarke 6-4, 6-3.

Thank you. “He’s the best ever British player and one of the best tennis players that’s ever lived,” he said, looking back on the time when they started working together at Murray’s Miami winter training camp six years ago. “For me to be a young 17-year-old who just got a pro ranking, it was amazing to be part of that. And all these years later it was weird playing him at Queen’s first [in 2016], and now to be on the winning end. But that’s sport. It happens. You have to be selfish and win. He probably did the same thing when he beat Tim [Henman] for the first time [at Basel in 2006].”There is no denying the operation Murray had in Melbourne in January has pinched a yard or two of pace from his trademark retrievals, especially when he moves to the right off his left leg, and, while Edmund was alive to that vulnerability, he said later he did not prey on it just because of the injury.Edmund is just the fifth British player to beat Murray, alongside Henman, Matthew Hilton, David Sherwood and Tom Greenland. Kyle Edmund Twitter Facebook Victory for Murray on Wednesday was always going to be in the performance rather than the result. After breaking a 342-day absence at Queen’s last week with a three-set workout over two hours and 39 minutes against Nick Kyrgios, he beat Stan Wawrinka in style in an hour and 17 minutes here on Tuesday, even if the Swiss was struggling with his own knee troubles. One out of three is not bad.Murray had his chances against Edmund, and the crowd seemed evenly split – although sentiment for the triple-slam knight of tennis grew as he began to struggle. As Murray dug deep to hold for 4-5 in the first set, there were successive shouts from the packed stands of “Come on, Andy”, “Come on, Kyle”… and “Come on, both of you.”But there was little the Scot could do about a second-serve 117mph ace down the T that delivered the set to Edmund. The second frame was old-fashioned attrition, Murray broken twice and saving five of seven break points, then breaking back before a wicked Edmund backhand down the line finished the job.Johanna Konta ousted at EastbourneJohanna Konta has lost to the world No 2, Caroline Wozniacki, in the third round at Eastbourne. The 27-year-old made a promising start but her preparations for Wimbledon, which begins on Monday, were undermined by a 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 defeat.Wozniacki, who had lost her previous two matches against Konta, progresses to the quarter‑finals where on Thursday she will meet Ashleigh Barty of Australia.Playing in her home town and against an opponent whose natural strengths are not suited to competing on grass, Konta made an impressive start. She broke Wozniacki in the first game and went 2-0 up to build a sense of momentum.Even when she dropped serve to allow the Dane back to 3-3 she responded by breaking Wozniacki again and closing out the set.During her victory against Aleksandra Krunic on Tuesday there were hints of the inconsistency that undermined her in the second set against Wozniacki. Johanna Konta fires a backhand return to Caroline Wozniacki. Photograph: Tom Jenkins/Guardian Andy Murray has only a day or so to analyse his form and fitness three matches into his comeback but, if he does commit to playing Wimbledon next week – he was still undecided on Wednesday night – he will return as surely the best three-digit outrider in the world rankings since Andre Agassi.The mercurial American, Murray’s childhood hero, drifted as low as No 141 a year after being No 1 in the world during an existential collapse in the 90s before climbing back to the top, and retired a decade later at 36.Agassi’s dip was spiritual and his comeback redemptive; Murray, who has slipped to No 156, is renewing his tennis after the physical trauma of surgery to groin and hip, as well as the internal discussion he must have about his self‑belief in the strongest era of the sport.

North East votes Confusion among Muslims voters

first_imgNew Delhi: Whom to vote, Congress candidate Sheila Dikshit or AAP candidate Dilip Pandey? Vote division and the confusion prevailed among the Muslim voters in the North East Constituency of Delhi.Congress worker Maaruf Saifi said, “Former CM Sheila Dikshit’s decision to contest from here is something that people did not expect and feel fortunate that a huge figure like her has chosen the area which resulted the vote drifted towards the Aam Aadmi Party returning to the Congress so that the national party can put up a fight and defeat the BJP.” Also Read – Cylinder blast kills mother and daughter in Karawal NagarShahid Mirza, who owns chemist shop at the main Mustafabad road, said that he supports Aam Aadmi Party because of the work done by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, but feels that since Dikshit is not an ordinary Congress leader, the older generations will take her side and this splitted the vote bank which may benefitted the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He further added that locals have realised that the Dilip Pandey’s campaign was strong on ground and has been campaigning and building outreach among locals for almost two years now. Also Read – Two persons arrested for killing manager of Muthoot FinanceEarlier, he was only the symphathiser of North East voters in Muslim ghettos and has been closely involved in governance of Delhi government, but last time entry of Sheila Dixit has created a rift among the Muslims voters.

A first time voter from Ghonda and a social worker, Riyaz malik said that ever since the congress candidate Dikshit has entered the campaign, the voters have realised that the game is big and Congress will be a better tactical vote.

Detroit Lions Matthew Stafford Makes The Play For Healthy Habits

first_img“Making the play” – something quarterback Matthew Stafford does week after week each season with the Detroit Lions – is something he couldn’t accomplish without good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) wants to know how kids in grades four through eight would make Michigan healthier through its second annual “Make the Play for Healthy Habits” video contest.The student that submits the winning video will get to star as a host of his/her own healthy lifestyle video blog series on aHealthierMichigan.org, and will receive a school assembly featuring Stafford.Video submissions are being accepted Jan. 30 – March 29. In April, 10 semifinalists will be selected and notified and their video submissions will be posted on aHealthierMichigan.org for a two-week public voting period. The winner will be announced in early May.“Last year we had such a tremendous response from kids across Michigan to this contest, we are excited to do it again,” said Andrew Hetzel, BCBSM vice president for corporate communications. “Kids are naturally creative. Working with their parents and teachers, Blue Cross wants to see their creativity come to life with the goal of making their schools and communities healthier.”Video submissions should be no more than two minutes long. They should creatively answer the question “What would you do to make Michigan healthier?” and include the student’s perspective on how themselves, their family, teachers and classmates can live a healthier life. Students should explain how they would communicate healthy lifestyle choices with their families and fellow students.Students can submit a video using any digital recording device using an MP3 format, such as a smartphone, iPad, Flip video or webcam, or they can upload a video via YouTube. For more information, please visit aHealthierMichigan.org/kidcontest.Students, grades four through eight, must be enrolled in an accredited public or private learning institution within Michigan to participate.According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), childhood obesity has both immediate and long-term effects on health and well-being. The CDC also reports that 14.2 percent of Michigan adolescents in grades nine through 12 are overweight, while 11.9 percent are obese. In children ages two to five years, 16.3 percent are overweight and 13.3 percent are obese.Schools play a particularly critical role in combating obesity by establishing a safe and supportive environment with policies and practices that can encourage healthy behaviors. Schools also provide opportunities for students to learn about and practice healthy eating and physical activity behaviors.The “Make the Play for Healthy Habits” kid contest is an extension of BCBSM’s ongoing efforts to combat childhood obesity by encouraging kids to share their ideas using creativity and new media. In addition, this week BCBSM announced that elementary schools can apply for a new round of grant funding from Building Healthy Communities, a partnership with the Michigan Fitness Foundation, Wayne State University’s College of Education Center for School Health and the United Dairy Institute of Michigan. Since 2009, BCBSM, the program’s creator and primary funder, has invested more than $3 million in the Building Healthy Communities program in an effort to promote healthier lifestyles and prevent childhood obesity and its associated health risks.Immediate health effects of childhood obesity: • Obese youth are more likely to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure. In a population-based sample of five- to 17-year-olds, 70 percent of obese youth had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease. • Obese adolescents are more likely to have pre-diabetes, a condition in which blood glucose levels indicate a high risk for development of diabetes. • Children and adolescents who are obese are at greater risk for bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, and social and psychological problems such as stigmatization and poor self-esteem.Long-term health effects of childhood obesity: • Children and adolescents who are obese are likely to be obese as adults and are therefore more at risk for adult health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several types of cancer and osteoarthritis. One study showed that children who became obese as early as age two were more likely to be obese as adults. • Overweight and obesity are associated with increased risk for many types of cancer, including cancer of the breast, colon, endometrium, esophagus, kidney, pancreas, gall bladder, thyroid, ovary, cervix and prostate, as well as multiple myeloma and Hodgkin’s lymphoma.Knowledge and prevention: • According to the CDC, healthy lifestyle habits, including healthy eating and physical activity, can lower the risk of becoming obese and developing related diseases. • The dietary and physical activity behaviors of children and adolescents are influenced by many sectors of society, including families, communities, schools, child care settings, medical care providers, faith-based institutions, government agencies and the media, as well as the food, beverage and entertainment industries.Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network are nonprofit corporations and independent licensees of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.

Despite much progress more must be done to protect childrens rights –

“It is unacceptable that children are still dying from preventable causes, like pneumonia, malaria, measles and malnutrition,” UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Ann M. Veneman said in releasing the annual State of the World’s Children report.The special edition of UNICEF’s flagship report comes on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child by the UN General Assembly. “Many of the world’s children will never see the inside of a school room, and millions lack protection against violence, abuse, exploitation, discrimination and neglect,” she added, stressing the “particularly alarming” problem of violence against children, with between 500 million and 1.5 billion youngsters estimated to suffer such abuse annually. The Convention “is the most ratified human rights treaty in human history” with 193 States parties, she said, listing the benefits achieved since its inception. Beyond the mortality reduction, these include access to improved water sources for 1.6 billion people; an increase in primary-school-age children in class to around 84 per cent, with the gender gap narrowing; more care for children in the HIV and AIDS pandemic; steps to protect youngsters from serving as soldiers or trafficked into prostitution or domestic servitude; a rise in age of children getting married; and a gradual fall in the number of girls subjected to genital cutting. The rights of girls still require special attention, the report stresses. The majority of children not attending primary school are girls, and girls are more likely to suffer sexual violence, be trafficked or forced into child marriage. In many regions they are less likely to receive essential healthcare. The report includes special expert essays from public and private sector representatives, alongside examples of the child rights situation in a range of countries. The essays offer advice on the role the Convention can have in an increasingly populous, urbanized and environmentally challenged world, over the next 20 years and beyond. More than 160 events are taking place worldwide commemorating the anniversary. The report launched today is part of UNICEF’s contribution, which includes jointly hosting with civil society and government partners a global commemoration and panel discussion at UN Headquarters in New York tomorrow. In a foreword to the report, Ms. Veneman called for broad collaboration at international and national levels in implementing the Convention’s principles and the rights contained in it. “The challenge for the next 20 years is to build on the progress achieved, working together to reach those children who are still being denied their rights to survival, development, protection and participation,” she wrote. “The Convention on the Rights of the Child stands as a universal standard for building a better world – a world in which the best interests of children are a primary concern of all.” 19 November 2009Despite considerable progress over the past 20 years in improving the lot of the world’s children, including a 28 per cent drop in annual mortality of those under five from 12.5 million to an estimated 8.8 million, their rights are still far from assured, according to a new United Nations report issued today. read more

Steal pebbles from beach and risk prosecution visitors in Pembrokeshire warned

The poster has had a mixed reaction online, with one resident saying it was difficult to prevent people taking stones from beaches.Ben Williams wrote: “When your three-year-old little girl wants to keep a pretty little pebble she found, I can’t say no.”A spokesman for Pembrokeshire County Council confirmed while the unsigned poster was not one of theirs, they agreed with the sentiment. The sign warned the pebbles were a "vital" part of the beach's sea defences.  The sign warned the pebbles were a “vital” part of the beach’s sea defences. Credit:Alamy An anonymous sign has appeared at a beach warning visitors who take pebbles as keepsakes they will be prosecuted.The unsigned, laminated sign, appeared on a beach in Amroth, Pembrokeshire, where it warned that “the stones on this beach are part of Amroth’s vital sea defences”.”Removal is a criminal offence,” it read.”Offenders are liable to prosecution.”The offence falls under the Coastal Protection Act 1949, which leaves offenders liable for a fine for leaving areas exposed to erosion.It comes after a holidaymaker was forced to drive hundreds of miles to a beach in Cornwall to return pebbles he had taken last year, after a Cornish council threatened court action.The incident took place in Crackington Haven, Cornwall, where pebble theft has become so common St Gennys Parish Council was forced to put up signs on the beaches warning the practice was illegal. “If everyone started taking pebbles from the beach then we would have a problem. But we have no plans to put up any of our own signs at the moment,” he said. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

New global headquarters for Tenova focuses on developing new talents and skills

first_imgTenova, one of the world’s major suppliers of technologies, advanced engineering products and services for the mining and metallurgical industries, is moving its main headquarters to Castellanza (Varese), to a new and modern corporate campus. The Tenova Campus extends over a surface of approximately 100,000 m2 and will host over 400 employees. It was designed and developed in accordance with principles of functionality and environmental sustainability, characterised by the integration of new buildings with the Tenova Pomini offices and production site. The company has invested a total of approximately €15 million in the project.“The campus is an expression of the Tenova working approach, grounded in a heightened attention to and awareness of sharing, collaboration and the integration of different company functions”, explains Andrea Lovato, Chief Executive Office of Tenova. “This choice reflects Tenova’s long-term strategic vision, focused on continuous innovation and on attracting, training and developing talents and skills capable of sustaining the company’s future development.”“In this new location, Tenova’s industrial vocation will be fully expressed: the company’s various business units, functional staff and the existing Pomini factory will all come together in a single site, creating a work environment congenial to the interaction and exchange of best practices between engineers, office staff, specialised and professional workers, with positive effects on the efficiency of the company’s processes.” Collaboration, sharing and integration will all be developed alongside another of the company’s values, ‘transparency’, which will also be palpable in the campus’ architecture. Indeed Tenova says all of its offices will be characterised by floor-to-ceiling windows and walls, for bright interiors overlooking outdoor green areas, which will “also guarantee internal visibility, for a continuous environment where staff can work together.”Tenova says it will focus on young people and is set to bolster exchanges with universities, schools and technical institutes. On-site areas have been specifically created for this purpose: for example, in the congress centre there are training rooms and a 150-seat auditorium. The campus will also feature numerous meeting rooms and break areas as well as a canteen that has been designed to encourage conviviality and sharing. In order to guarantee staff wellness, services available to the company’s employees include a new sports and fitness area.last_img read more

Gay couples too face domestic violence

first_imgWhile intimate partner violence is a prevalent and pressing concern in heterosexual relationships, gay couples too may be at an increased risk of physical and sexual violence, emotional abuse as well as controlling behaviour, finds a study.According to researchers, the violence links back to HIV prevention because men in abusive relationships may find it hard to negotiate for condom use or even when and how they have sex. A gay man who is struggling with his identity might lash out at his partner with physical or emotional abuse as a stress response behaviour – similar to heterosexual couples, where an unemployed man lashes out at his female partner because he feels inadequate. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe study makes a strong connection between internalized homophobia and violence, the findings showed.”If you just looked at physical and sexual violence in male couples, it’s about 25 to 30 per cent, roughly the same as women,” said Rob Stephenson, Professor at the University of Michigan in the US.”We’re stuck in this mental representation of domestic violence as a female victim and a male perpetrator, and while that is very important, there are other forms of domestic violence in all types of relationships,” Stephenson added. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe research is important because it debunks that stereotype, and accounts for controlling and isolating behaviours as well as physical abuse, Stephenson said.For the study, published in the American Journal of Men’s Health, the researchers recruited 320 men (160 couples) to independently complete individual surveys measuring demographic information, partner violence experience and perpetration, and individual and relationship characteristics that may shape the experience of violence. They found that 46 per cent of the 320 men (160 couples) experienced some form of intimate partner violence in the last year – physical and sexual violence, emotional abuse and controlling behaviour.The Supreme Court in India has began hearing a number of petitions challenging Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalises consensual homosexuality for people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.last_img read more

Bengaluru fail to break Chennai, Gaya, AFP The government scientist, Modi was supposed to be this Rube from Hicktown…instead we got a foreign policy PM This present government has a lot to do with the economic and political tipping points of India.When this Prime Minister took office he surprised a lot of people by turning out to be a foreign policy prime minister If you went by the Indian media’s general characterisation of him he was a Rube from Hicktown Yet it turned out that unbeknownst to many people over the decades he had spent a lot of time in this country (US) in China in Japan besides his more than a dozen years as the head of a large state (Gujarat) That was supposed to be his metier when he became the Prime Minister but right off the start he was a foreign policy Prime Minister and a very ambitious one I don’t think we’ve seen this kind of thrust on foreign policy since Pandit Nehru’s times This is despite three Prime Ministers since that time who had already served as foreign ministers This was at a time when India’s sheen had been taken off and I think he has been successful in repositioning India The response is overwhelming from policy makers and the average cab driver People who can wax eloquent about the US Senate’s filibuster rules don’t seem to understand that without a majority in the Rajya Sabha you cannot pass bills Economically from 2014 onwards there was a lot of debate in India as to what would be the next big reform in India There was a lot of criticism initially that this government was not getting down to economic reforms It’s ironic because within the first three or four months this Prime Minister made a risky reach He tried to undo the land acquisition act which has been considered by many to be a major bottleneck to investment and economic growth It turned out that if everything worked like clockwork it would take 55 months for any land to be acquired by any investor And nothing works like clockwork It was an ambitious reach and there were those ordinances because the Bill couldn’t be passed He (Modi) had to step back because it became a wedge issue that got the entire Opposition to align Now I find it amazing that people don’t understand the simple arithmetic of political capital in India People who can wax eloquent about the US Senate’s filibuster rules don’t seem to understand that without a majority in the Rajya

University in honour of Arvind Panagariya who until recently was Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog Known to be addicted to witticisms he picked up in Cambridge of the 1950s Bhagwati poked fun at government processes and shone a light on why he is cheering Panda on for India’s top job in the future: “Like those who live in the US know that executive action is a big thing here because you can’t get things through the Congress The trouble with that is because it is easier to impose it is also easier to revoke But way back I asked Jay about it and he pointed out how you can renew ordinances again and again If you can do that it undermines the legitimacy of the Congress or (Indian) Parliament and so we must worry about it Jay Panda was the first person who drew my attention to this the same thing is happening in France Today this is a big big issue I am particularly grateful to Jay for pointing this out early in the game To find politicians who are interested in the issues is not easy Most of
