Has peace broken out between bankers and politicians? Has the government caved in to the masters of the universe – or brought them to heal? And is it safe now to mention at dinner parties that you work in the City?There are many different sides claiming victory, but it is undoubtedly true that most of the government wants peace to break out.Certain members of the left might want a permanent war against bankers, since they are such a useful political enemy – just as Hugo Chavez has a permanent war with the Venezuelan middle classes. With a politically-motivated war, no punishment is enough, because the politics won’t change. Whatever pound of flesh is given, the insatiable cry would go up “we need more blood”.But the Prime Minister and chancellor know that no responsible government can be in permanent war with the most profitable – and highest tax-paying – part of the economy. The chancellor crowed at the Conservative Party conference that he has introduced the first permanent banking levy. He thundered in parliament this week that London now has the most stringent bonus regime in the world. Aren’t the bank bashers satisfied?The government thinks not – it wants to reach a settlement with banks, whereby it holds back on any new bonus clampdown, in return for banks increasing lending to small companies.These are strange times indeed, and awkward for the Conservatives. They don’t want a new bonus tax, but it had a 97 per cent public approval rating and would fill a big fiscal hole. The Conservatives are fundamentally free-market, but politics dictates they must boast about introducing pay controls in private companies, and tell banks how much to lend. It was politicians forcing banks to lend to causes that were morally worthy but not creditworthy that led to the subprime crisis, and sparked the banking implosion. The government must ensure the cure isn’t worse than the disease.Despite the peace moves, the coming weeks of bonus season are going to be politically febrile. It will be some time before peace really comes, and it is politically safe for politicians to talk up financial services once again.But even then, the threat to London as a financial centre will be far from over. Many policies damaging its competitiveness have been introduced, and in Brussels, where most financial services regulation comes from, they are unlikely to know that the war is over. Brussels’ grip over London’s financial services will probably prove to be the most profound legacy of this crisis, and the one that causes most problems in the long run.• Anthony Browne is an adviser to the Mayor of London. last_img read more

Kindred hires Johan Wilsby as new finance chief

first_img Kindred hires Johan Wilsby as new finance chief Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Kindred Group has appointed Johan Wilsby, formerly of eye-tracking technology company Tobii as chief financial officer, replacing Albin de Beauregard in the role.Wilsby has served as chief financial officer at Tobii, which develops solutions that allow those with communication disabilities to interact with other people or computers, since June 2017.Prior to this, he had held the same role at biometric recognition business Fingerprint Cards and networking solutions provider Transmode, as well as CFO of the Swedish and later Nordic divisions of Hewlett-Packard.“I am delighted and pleased to welcome Johan to the Kindred team,” Henrik Tjärnström, Kindred Group chief executive, said. “In addition to Johan’s capability in finance, his extensive experience from the digital industry will ensure he can engage in our operations from the start and be an important part of the management of the company.”Wilsby will start at Kindred at an as-yet unnamed date this autumn.“I really look forward to joining Kindred’s management team and to lead the finance organisation, and thereby contributing to the company’s future success in a dynamic market”, Wilsby said.He replaces Albin de Beauregard, who announced in November 2019 he would leave the CFO position in Q1 2020. The company’s former finance chief Graham Stretch supported the operator, and aided the search for de Beauregard’s replacement, during the transition period.Earlier today, Kindred reported an 11.3% rise in first quarter revenue to £249.7m €286.4m/$307.8m. The operator’s profit fell to £1.0m, but it said a number of exceptional costs incurred during the period made it difficult to compare results on a year-over-year basis.

Uncertainty over 2021 Women’s Six Nations

first_img Defending champs: England sealed back-to-back Grand Slams by beating Italy last year (Getty Images) Growing concerns over the championship with fixtures yet to be announced If those restrictions remain for the Women’s Six Nations, Ireland would need to play all their matches at home.It is also not clear if the Women’s Six Nations would fall under ‘elite sport’ in France and Italy, meaning those national teams would be exempt from certain travel restrictions. The women’s domestic leagues in France have been suspended since November.The Six Nations could be moved to a later window, perhaps April-May when the hope is that restrictions will have been eased, or maybe there will be limited fixtures with, say, England, Scotland and Wales playing matches with no air travel required.There are knock-on effects to any alternative plans, particularly in a World Cup year. A delay to the Six Nations would likely also delay the European RWC 2021 qualifiers, which involve Ireland, Italy, Scotland and the European Rugby Championship winner (still to be decided as that tournament has also been postponed). That in turn would delay the final qualifying tournament.World Rugby could decide that the Six Nations fixtures involving Ireland, Italy and Scotland should double up as RWC 2021 qualifiers. That was already due to be the case with the Italy v Scotland match scheduled for December until that, too, was cancelled and would reduce the amount of fixtures to fit in as the timeframe between now and the World Cup in New Zealand shortens.There is no easy fix given the ever-changing situation regarding the pandemic, but it’s important teams can adequately prepare for the World Cup or the integrity of that tournament will be called into question. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Uncertainty over 2021 Women’s Six NationsThere are growing concerns over when, or even if, this year’s Women’s Six Nations will take place.The women’s championship, which generally mirrors the men’s, is due to kick off in less than a month but the fixtures have not yet been confirmed.While the dates for this year’s men’s championship were announced back in 2019, the women’s fixtures are often announced much later, although they would usually be known by now.The continually changing picture regarding Covid-19 restrictions in the countries involved complicates matters, as we saw last year. Grand Slam winners England were the only team to play all five of their 2020 championship games as three fixtures were cancelled last autumn due to the coronavirus.Six Nations organisers are having ongoing discussions in order to stage the championship and are expected to make an announcement next week, but there is a lot of uncertainty.As the RFU head of women’s performance Nicky Ponsford told BBC Sport: “I do have concerns about how well we’re going to be able to get through this period.”Curtailed: Scotland drew 13-13 with France last autumn but their final two games were cancelled (Getty Images)While England’s players are professional and would be able to operate in a ‘bubble’ for the Six Nations, the same is not true of the other countries. France are semi-pro so may be able to commit to a similar training environment, but most Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales players are amateur, balancing rugby alongside jobs.On top of that are the travel restrictions in different countries. In the autumn, France agreed to play their fixture against Ireland in Dublin rather than Lille (before it was cancelled due to positive Covid cases) because the Irish players would have had to isolate for 14 days on their return had the match been played in France. That obviously presented problems given their work and family commitments, particularly as many players work in teaching and medicine. Can’t get to the shops?

Communities in Schools chief educates committee on organization’s work

first_img WhatsApp Pinterest Communities in Schools chief educates committee on organization’s work By admin – February 10, 2018 CISPBCISPB SchoolsDallas Women’s FoundationLow educational attainment tends to mean dropping out of school, most jobs being out of reach, being less likely to engage in the community, more likely to go to jail and more likely to have children who don’t graduate.These were just some of the probabilities Communities in Schools of the Permian Basin Executive Director Eliseo Elizondo presented to the Student Health Advisory Council. Elizondo said those factors can also lead people to engage in more risky behaviors, which can mean the need for more social services.A nationwide nonprofit organization, Communities in Schools is a dropout prevention program.Those who graduate from high school and college tend to earn more, are more likely to be insured, have better health, be more civically engaged and have children who graduate.According to a poll conducted by Communities in Schools, 88 percent of U.S. teachers believe that student poverty is the No. 1 barrier to effective learning in the classroom, Elizondo said.One out of every five children in the nation lives in poverty; one in four in Texas live in poverty and one in seven in Ector County, Elizondo said. Seventeen percent of all women and girls in Texas live in poverty and it’s even worse if you’re a woman of color, he said.Hispanic girls and women are more likely to live in poverty and be less educated, Elizondo said. The definition of poverty, he said, is a family of three living on less than $19,096 annually.“There still remains large gender inequality still exists in childcare, higher education, housing and health insurance …,” he said.In Texas, 63 percent of workers that earn minimum wage or less are women, according to the 2107 Center for Public Policy Priorities Economic Issues for Women in Texas report, sponsored by the Dallas Women’s Foundation.Women in Texas on average earn 79 percent (79 cents on the dollar) compared to their male counterparts. That drops to 59 percent for black women and 44 percent for Hispanic women.Elizondo also reviewed ECISD’s struggles during Thursday’s SHAC meeting. The district has eight schools on improvement required under state accountability standards. Ector Middle School and Noel and Zavala elementary schools are in their fifth year of improvement required. If they do not come off the list, the campuses will face closure or the Texas Education Commissioner will appoint a board of managers over the whole district.The teacher turnover rate for ECISD is 21 percent, which Elizondo said is above the state average. It is below the state average in terms of graduation rate and average attendance.Fifty-two percent of students in ECISD are economically disadvantaged, which is below the state average of 59 percent, he said. However, that translates to 16,246 students.The at-risk population for ECISD is 58 percent, compared to 51 percent statewide, which translates to 18,289 students, he said. Elizondo said he can serve about 800 students right now.For Elizondo, ground zero is Odessa High School. He said 75 percent of the roughly 4,000 students there would be eligible for Communities in Schools. Because of that, he said he would work toward adding more staff and programs into that campus.Communities in Schools served 1,160 students in 2016-17. Of those, Elizondo said 641 were in Odessa.Eighty-four percent of them were promoted and 96 percent of all students touched by CIS stayed in school. Ninety-eight percent of those were in Odessa.Overall, students in Communities in Schools has a 96 percent graduation rate.Ninety-five percent of Odessa students in CIS graduated. Elizondo said ECISD has an overall graduation rate of 86 percent.CIS was established in the Permian Basin in 1999. Elizondo said it is accredited by TEA and partially funded by TEA.Campus coordinators are stationed at every campus Communities in Schools serves, Elizondo said. Anyone can refer a student to the program, he added.Staff case manage anywhere from 90 to 100 students, Elizondo said. But that doesn’t include walk-ins.The nonprofit partners with local businesses, social service agencies, health care providers and volunteers to connect students and families with outside resources. The organization has been known to provide anything from clothing to tires to places to live and helped with payment of utility bills.However, Elizondo said he is seeking more funding and wants to start the program at Nimitz Middle School and expand some of the other programs CIS offers to ECISD.SCHOOLS COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS SERVESEctor County ISDCrockett Middle SchoolEctor Middle SchoolWilson and Young Medal of Honor Middle SchoolBowie Middle SchoolBonham Middle SchoolOdessa High SchoolPermian High SchoolAlternative Education CenterMidland County ISDGoddard Junior High SchoolLee Freshman High SchoolMidland Freshman High SchoolLee Senior High SchoolMidland Senior High SchoolGreenwood ISDGreenwood High SchoolBrooks Middle School Facebook Odessa High School’s Skylar Herrera (25) shoots against Permian’s Reyna Rayos (10) during the first half Tuesday night at the Permian Fieldhouse.

A statement made without intent cannot be considered to be a criminal offence u/s 153A,295A, 505 of IPC & 66 of IT Act.2) Alternatively…assuming thereto, is it not a case made under Section 95 and liable to be quashed?3) One cannot have alternative FIRs arising out the same alleged offence, doing so points to abuse of power.4) Also, assuming though not accepting that an FIR could lie, the jurisdiction cannot be beyond Noida where the broadcast was made, Devgan cannot be dragged to any and every corner of the country.Luthra argued that the basis of filing an FIR basis against Devgan stemmed from what was learnt by complainant on social media. “What is said on social media is often very toxic and if you read something toxic, does not mean the original content was. This man did not even watch the show and he states in the FIR itself that he got the information about Devgan’s derogatory statements from social media” he added.While one FIR did state that Devgan had the intention to insult the Sufi Saint, which he did deliberately (by using the word “Lootera” for Khwaja Moinnuddin Chisti on his show), Luthra argued that intention in no way makes out an offence. Then, the Senior Counsel argued that that a comment against a religious figure would not attract an offence under 295A IPC.There is absence of all ingredients made out against Devgan, under Section 153A, 295A or 505(2) of the IPC.”I would submit, how can the act fall within 505(2)? The mere usage of the word intent or deliberate in the FIR will not bring offences within the corners of these sections under IPC against,” said Luthra.Further, he contended that section 66(f) of the Information Technology act would also not be attracted as it stipulated ingredients of “Cyber Terrorism”.The bench is expected to hear arguments tomorrow throughout the day from 10.30 AM.Background:While hosting a debate on June 15 on PIL’s regarding the Place of Worship Special Provision Act on his show ‘Aar Par’, Amish had called Khwaja Moinuddin Chisthi, better known as Khwaja Ghreeb Nawaz, an “attacker” and “looter”.Following that, several police complaints and FIRs were registered against the anchor across the country.Devgan’s petition filed through Advocate Vivek Jain seeks quashing of the FIRs which have invoked sections 295A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs), ‪153A‬ (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc, and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony), 505 (Statements conducing to public mischief) and 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).Devgan had also profusely apologised for referring to the Sufi Saint as a “lootera” and called it an “inadvertent error”.His tweet of apology read:”In 1 of my debates,I inadvertently referred to ‘Khilji’ as Chishti. I sincerely apologise for this grave error and the anguish it may hv caused to followers of the Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti, whom I revere. I have in the past sought blessings at his dargah. I regret this error”.On July 8, the top court had directed a stay on an investigation and coercive action against journalist Amish Devgan.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The CIPD should focus on developing senior HR

first_imgThe CIPD should focus on developing senior HROn 5 Mar 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. This issue focuses on the tools HR people are using to demonstrate theimpact of their interventions on the bottom line. If you want to know where tofind the relevant articles, you’ll find the page numbers promoted prominentlyat the top of the front page. The use of metrics, balanced score cards, performance indicators and a wholeparaphernalia of related approaches is increasing as HR directors fight forcash for their initiatives and try to justify their existence. Butdemonstrating the value of progressive HR practices is really only the firstphase of a mammoth challenge – the ultimate aim should be to get board membersto view their staff as a value, or an asset that can be calculated, rather thana cost. As HR directors know to their frustration, there is still a long way togo. This is despite the fact that the CIPD has banged on about the evidencedemonstrating the impact of progressive HR practices on the bottom line atevery available opportunity. This is all very well, but the way to change theminds of top executives is to demonstrate the value of HR in a language theyunderstand, and to show it working in their organisations. There are manyhigh-calibre HR directors already achieving this, but they are in great demand.Real change will only come when there is a much bigger pool of senior HRprofessionals with the experience and capabilities to drive this agendaforward. The problem is that at the moment there is a vacuum in HR managers’continuing professional development at the highest levels. Every time senior HRpeople gather they bemoan the fact that the CIPD qualification has no relevanceat their level. Sadly, they also point out that the institute is making noconcerted effort to fill the gap in senior HR development. If the institute won’taddress this need, then someone else will have to.

WeWork exits first Hong Kong location as part of global downsizing

Part of that strategy involves shedding space around the globe.In its latest move, the co-working company exited its 90,000-square-foot office in Hong Kong, according to the South China Morning Post. That amounts to a 20 percent reduction in the territory, leaving WeWork with 360,000 square feet of office space.The company gave up eight floors at Phoenix Property’s Tower 535 in Causeway Bay.The Tower 535 office was WeWork’s first Hong Kong location when it opened in 2016. The company’s lease with Phoenix Property ends in 2025, and the early exit may result in a penalty for WeWork, according to the report.WeWork leased 830,000 square feet of office space in Hong Kong at its peak in 2019. The city’s wider property market has taken a hit since pro-democracy protests began later that year; the coronavirus pandemic has further weakened demand.WeWork’s recent move to cut space builds on new management’s mission to slash the company’s once-massive global footprint and become profitable by the fourth quarter.WeWork has been dumping leases in numerous cities for over a year. So far in 2021, WeWork has exited multiple Manhattan locations and at least one in Los Angeles.Co-working and flex-office firms have struggled amid the work-from-home world, which has reduced the need for conference room and event space, and for related office operations. Meanwhile, WeWork competitor IWG has added more than 50,000 square feet of flexible office space in Hong Kong over the last six months.[SCMP] — Dennis Lynch  hong kongOffice LeasingWeWork Tagslast_img read more

Studies of ionospheric F-region irregularities from geomagnetic mid-latitude conjugate regions

first_imgScintillation data from near Boston, U.S.A., and spread-F data from Argentine Islands, Antarctica are used to investigate the diurnal and seasonal variations of the simultaneous occurrence of medium-scale (~ 1–10 km) irregularities in the electron concentration in the F-region of the ionosphere at conjugate magnetic mid-latitude regions. It is found that these two stations near 52° CGL observe similar irregularity occurrence on ~75% of occasions at night when the data are considered on an hour by hour basis. During solstices, the relationship is dominated by occasions when irregularities are absent from both ends of the geomagnetic field lines; however, at equinoxes, periods of the simultaneous occurrence and non-occurrence of irregularities are approximately equally frequent. During periods of high geomagnetic activity, processes associated with the convection electric field and particle precipitation are likely to be important for the formation and transport of irregularities over these higher mid-latitude observatories. These processes are likely to occur simultaneously in conjugate regions. On days following geomagnetic activity, two processes may be operating that enhance the probability of the temperature-gradient instability, and hence lead to the formation of irregularities. These are the presence of stable auroral red arcs which occur simultaneously in conjugate locations, and the negative F-region storm effects whereby latitudinal plasma concentration gradients are increased; these effects are only similar in conjugate regions. During very quiet geomagnetic periods, F-region irregularities are occasionally observed, but seldom simultaneously at the two ends of the field lines. There is also an anomalous peak in the occurrence of irregularities over Argentine Islands associated with local sunrise in winter. No explanation is offered for these observations. Photo-electrons from the conjugate hemisphere appear to have no effect on irregularity occurrence.last_img read more

Making History With Ocean City Museum Camp

first_imgOcean City Historical Museum offers history camps such as these from the summer of 2018. (Courtesy Ocean City Historical Museum) By Maddy VitaleDid you ever wonder who founded Ocean City? What about when the Boardwalk was built? Did you ever hear of a ship named Sindia?These are just some of the questions that will be answered during the Ocean City Historical Museum’s History Camp.Sessions are $25 per child and run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. July 9-13 and July 16-20 and Aug. 6-10. The camp, in its third year, is sponsored by the Friends and Volunteers of the Ocean City Free Public Library, and includes snacks, prizes and a pizza party.  Babs Stefano, vice-president of the Museum’s Board of Trustees, said the children love history camp.  “It is a fun, exciting way to learn about the history of Ocean City,” she said.Museum volunteer Susan Hohman tells children about some of Ocean City’s history. (Courtesy Ocean City Historical Museum)The July camps, called “Museum Camp,” are designed to teach kids how to be tour guides. Children ages 7 and up are invited to attend the program. The camp offered in August called “Making History” is for children 10 and up. It offers a challenge for kids to select a topic, do research on it, and give a presentation to the public in the library on the last day of camp.About seven museum volunteers explain the rich history of Ocean City to the “campers.” Stefano said during the July camps, children learn specific facts about the historical pieces in the museum.“They become official tour guides for the last day of camp,” Stefano explained. “The museum volunteers don’t do the tours that day. The kids do.”  The older “campers” showcase what they learned in the August camp with a presentation.“What I stress in the “Making History” camp is they learn research techniques,” Stefano, a retired teacher said. “It helps them in school.”Children in the August camp session get to do a presentation on their favorite historical topic at the library. (Courtesy Ocean City Historical Museum)Last year children picked interesting topics for their presentations, Stefano said. One child explained the history of Ocean City’s mascot dog “Hobo.” Another child discussed the pools at the historic Flanders Hotel.Theo Wood, a University of Pennsylvania student, works at the museum in the summer. He helps with the history camps.“I like working with the kids and helping them learn about history in a more fun and interesting way,” Wood said.The kids participate in scavenger hunts, crossword puzzles and other educational games. The scavenger hunts are always a hit with the camp kids, Stefano noted.The students each get their own clipboard and badge and they go around and hunt for the objects on their piece of paper.“They have a lot of fun,” Stefano noted.This year the history camp is introducing a new game, involving a 24-piece puzzle. There are clues where to find the pieces, which are scattered in the museum.“It may say to find a puzzle piece behind the Sindia compass,” Stefano said.Babs Stefano, of the Ocean City Historical Museum, says the kids love the scavenger hunts.She said the goal of the camps is to show younger people all that the museum has to offer about Ocean City.  “We needed something that could get the kids interested in the museum,” Stefano said. “We wanted to show them all of the things they could learn.” Al Crescenzo, a museum volunteer and retired teacher, said the history camps have been a success and he hopes they could offer expanded daily hours for the camps in the future. Kids loved it so much the first year, they returned for the second camp, he said.Upper Township resident Lori Palombo stopped in to find out more about the history camps.Lori Palombo, of Upper Township, stopped by the museum Monday to find out more about the history camps. Palombo was a history major in college and thought her 8-year-old daughter might benefit from the camp.“I think it is great,” she said to Stefano. “Maybe, I will have my daughter do it.”Stefano said the camps offer more than just learning about history.The children become friends.“By the second day of the camp the kids form bonds. One little boy made a friend and his mom said he finally found someone he could really relate to,” she said. “The relationships they make with us as museum volunteers and each other is amazing.”The Ocean City Historical Museum is located at 1735 Simpson Ave. For more information visit or call (609) 399-1801.The last day of camp children receive certificates.

Saint Mary’s soccer captain earns academic honor

first_imgThe National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) recognized Saint Mary’s senior soccer captain Mollie Valencia with an honorable mention on the NSCAA College Division Women’s Scholar All-North/Central Region list.Valencia was one of five student-athletes in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA) to gain recognition and one of 40 midfielders to win an Honorable Mention, according to a College press release.“I worked hard, and it was more of an academic award than an athletic award,” Valencia said.Valencia, who is studying accounting, said she reacted to the honor with disbelief.“I was little bit surprised, just because there was so many people [in consideration],” she said. “My coach didn’t tell me he nominated me until later on.”Potential honorees must be nominated by an institution that is a current NSCAA College Services member. They also must be juniors or above in academic standing at their colleges or universities, Valencia said. She said they must also have started more than 50 percent of all games while contributing significantly to the team.“On the field I am a central midfielder, which means that I am involved in almost every play,” Valencia said. “Being the captain, I feel it is my responsibility to the lead the team, so I try to be a role model through my work ethic both on and off the field.“I am not a loud or boisterous leader. I like to say that I lead by example.”Valencia said she developed her leadership skills through her four years playing soccer for the Belles.“My experience on the team has led me to be more assertive, which is an important quality of a leader,” she said. “I realize that setting a good example is imperative to my role as a leader on the team.”Saint Mary’s soccer coach Michael Joyce nominated Valencia based on NSCAA standards that require candidates to maintain at least a 3.3 cumulative grade-point average on a 4.0 scale throughout his or her athletic career, Valencia said.While rewards extend beyond the field, Valencia said she acknowledges the amount of hard work and dedication she and her fellow teammates must commit to the sport they have loved and played since their youth.“It’s really time-consuming,” Valencia said. “During the fall, it’s really hard to keep up academics, keep up your athletics and still have a social life because we are Division III, and none of us are on scholarships.“We’re all just doing this because we love the game. I think that’s very different than Division I or Division II, which they’re basically getting paid to play soccer, but we basically put in the same amount of time as them.”Valencia said she credits her success to Joyce, who began his coaching career at Saint Mary’s the same season Valencia first became a Belle.“This is his fourth year here,” she said. “I like him as a coach. He’s a little bit quieter, but he knows what he’s talking about, and he’s always open to telling his players how they can improve.”Valencia said Joyce’s encouragement had a particularly positive impact on his team this season.“I feel like the past season was the best season for me, because I felt like we were really a team,” Valencia said. “Not just on the field. Off the field we would do a lot of team stuff together, and I’ve seen that in past seasons, but I think this season more than ever.”Though Valencia said recognition by the NSCAA is a wonderful tribute to her achievements in academics and athletics, she believes the greatest reward from her four years as a student athlete is her experience as a team leader.“I think anytime you’re the captain of a 27-person team, your leadership skills are going to develop,” she said. “I feel I’ve just been given responsibilities that have put me in the position to develop my leadership skills.“I have learned so many life lessons that I think will apply to life after college in the workforce.  I have developed very good time management skills as a result of being a student athlete.”Valencia said her team won only three games during her freshman year but now competes and often wins against some of the top teams in its conference.“I have watched the soccer program grow and I am proud to say I have played a small role in that growth,” she said. “I am proud to say that I am a soccer Belle.”Tags: award, saint mary’s, SMC Soccerlast_img read more

Trauma Tuesday: Surfing Shipsterns Edition

first_imgThe Originals from Dave otto on Vimeo.It’s summer! Let’s head down to the beach and do some surfing, Trauma Tuesday style.Shipsterns Bluff is a point of land that juts out from Tasmania, Australia – it is also known as Devil’s Point, so you get the idea. This is footage from surfing photographer Dave Otto from what appears to be long ago according to the video information on Vimeo. Shipsterns is considered to be one of the gnarliest, most remote, and most dangerous surf spots on the planet, and as you can see from the video, these waves are about as heavy as they get. Just the spray exploding out of the tubes is enough to make the pros weak in the knees. The video starts slow, and even has a shot of a guy getting barreled while chugging what I have to assume is a PBR, but then the action heats up. These wipeouts vary in their causes but the results are the same, getting crushed into the reef. Keep in mind that the guys on the boards are not weekend warriors, but seasoned veterans of the surfing grind: guys like Kelly Slater, Mike Brennan, Richie Vas, and more. There are some wins sprinkled into the carnage, but mostly it’s a wipeout supercut.Oh, yeah, there are also Great White Sharks. Like, a lot of them.Bonus: Here’s a video of pro surfer and native Tasmanian, James McKean talking about his greatest wipeout of all time, which of course occurred at Shipsterns and is pretty epic.Double Bonus: This video of divers almost getting inhaled by some Humpback Whales, Jonah-style.last_img read more

EPL: Rudiger double rescues draw for Chelsea at Leicester

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori EPL: Foxes attack Burnley Lampard: Tomori won’t leave Chelsea A rare double from defender Antonio Rudiger earned Chelsea a point in an entertaining 2-2 draw with third-placed Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday. Chelsea manager Frank Lampard sprung a major surprise ahead of kick off by leaving out first choice goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga after some recent poor showings, handing a start to 38-year-old Willy Caballero. The veteran was called into action to make a smart save to deny Jamie Vardy in a first half otherwise largely dominated by Chelsea, who again struggled to make their chances count in front of goal. However, it did not take the visitors long after the break to take the lead, as Rudiger headed home his first league goal since October 2018 just over a minute into the second half. The lead did not last long though, as Harvey Barnes found the net eight minutes later via a huge deflection, before the turnaround was complete in the 64th minute as Ben Chilwell slotted home to give Leicester the lead. Rudiger had the final say, however, looping a header over Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel in the 71st minute to snatch a draw that means Leicester remain eight points clear of Lampard’s side in fourth, who have won just four of their last 13 league games.Tags: Antonio RudigerFrank LampardKepa ArrrizabalagaKing Power StadiumWilly Caballerolast_img read more

Robson backs Bale for United

first_img Robson feels the United manager would be wise to move for the Real Madrid forward now that the Dutchman can no longer count on Di Maria. “Bringing Bale in would be a really good signing if it was to happen,” said Robson, discussing the launch of ESPN’s Greatest Sporting Cities research, which was commissioned to discover the UK’s top city to be a fan. “The good thing with Bale, and this is what the manager likes, is he can play in two different positions – he can play wide coming in and also as a centre-forward. “It will be really difficult but if the manager can add him to the squad I think he will be a happy man.” For now, the chances of Bale leaving Real Madrid look slim. Manager Rafael Benitez insists Bale will stay at the Bernabeu and the former Tottenham player is happy to remain despite being criticised by the club’s fans last season. Robson, meanwhile, refused to criticise Di Maria for the manner of his exit from United. Some supporters reacted angrily to the news that their club-record signing wanted out after just one year at the club. Robson is more philosophical on the matter, though, and called on fans to accept the club’s decision to sell the £59.7million signing. Bryan Robson thinks Gareth Bale would be an ideal signing for Manchester United in the wake of Angel di Maria’s impending departure to Paris St Germain. Di Maria landed in Doha on Sunday night to put the finishing touches to his £44.3million move to PSG. United have been linked with a number of big names in the transfer market – including that of Bale – since Louis van Gaal admitted he has concerns about a lack of creativity and pace in his squad. “I think they both accepted the fact that it’s probably better for the player to move on,” the former United captain said. Di Maria’s spell at United started off promisingly, but his form soon deteriorated and he only started one of the final 10 games of last season. Robson feels Di Maria never really adapted to the physicality of the Barclays Premier League. “He’s a proven top-class player but the Premier League didn’t particularly suit him,” said Robson, who played 461 times for United. “Towards the end of the season he was very disappointing. “He looked really short of confidence.” :: ESPN’s Greatest Sporting Cities research was commissioned to discover the UK’s best city to be a fan.

Mayweather confident McGregor ‘gamble’ will pay off

first_imgFLOYD Mayweather Jr admits he is taking a big risk fighting Conor McGregor but remains confident his “granite chin” will see him deal with everything the UFC star throws at him.Mayweather will put his 49-0 record on the line in Las Vegas this weekend after opting to come out of retirement to face McGregor in a blockbuster fight that has caught the world’s attention.The American has long been favourite to come out of the bout with a victory given his experience and boxing know-how, but McGregor’s unpredictability has seen many backing an upset.Mayweather remains confident he has what it takes to preserve his undefeated record, though, and cited his battles with Manny Pacquiao, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Shane Mosley as prime examples of his strong chin.“I’ve been here so many times, I know what it takes in a fight of this magnitude,” he told a media conference at the MGM Grand yesterday.“He’s a hell of a fighter, a stand-up guy, a tough competitor, this is not going to be an easy fight; there will be blood, sweat and tears.“After 21 years I’ve been hit with everything and I’m still here.“He’s going to bring his best, it is not going to be easy, but remember Pacquiao got bombs, Canelo got bombs, Shane Mosley had bombs but I’ve got a granite chin.“I’m taking a gamble, but it’s a gamble worth taking.”Mayweather finished his complimentary speech with one final warning for McGregor, adding: “Remember, the same way you give it, you have to be able to take it.“One thing I can do is fight. To be 49-0 it is obvious I am giving it, not receiving it.” (Omnisport)last_img read more

Experienced Melius heads training squad for Youth World Cup

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Selectors have named three Under-17 players in a 21-man squad for a 10-day training camp in preparation for next January’s ICC Under-19 World Cup in South Africa.All-rounder Jaden Leacock and 15-year-old seamer Che Simmons, both of whom hail from Barbados, along with middle order batsman Teddy Bishop from Windward Islands, will join the experienced likes of Kimani Melius and Ashmead Nedd for the September 13-23 camp.“The 10-day camp will focus on getting the players to understand the game strategies required to win an ICC Under-19 World Cup,” said West Indies Under-19 head coach Graeme West.“We will be looking to establish player roles and the specific skills they will require to deliver winning performances. The skill work at the camp will be focussed on producing greater consistency and efficiency for all situations.“We will work through game scenarios to build greater game awareness and understanding. Additional practice matches will be played to assess the progress that has been made and the learning that took place at the trial matches in St Vincent.It’s also important that we formulate team values which underpin the behaviour, mindset and performance of the squad on and off the field.Melius, who made two half-centuries in the 2018 Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand, is the only player in the training squad with first-class experience having played three matches during the back end of the last domestic season for Windward Islands Volcanoes.In fact, he was good enough to score a half-century on debut against Barbados at Arnos Vale.West said Melius was one of the players who would be expected to provide the experience in the group.“Kimani Melius, who is the only player with first-class experience in the squad, Leonardo Julien and Jayden Seales are three players who were part of the CWI Development Team that played in last year’s Super50, so they are the three senior players in the setup,” West explained.“From the trial games at the end of the Under-19 Rising Stars Championship, left-arm seamer Ramon Simmonds is someone that stands out. He had batsmen jumping around with his pace and aggression and I am sure he will excite Windies fans.”He continued: “Successful one-day teams are often built around positive opening batsmen and in Kirk McKenzie the squad possesses a player with outstanding ball striking ability and a wide range of attacking options.“He is certainly a player that can take advantage of the first powerplay and lay down a firm foundation for his side.”West said Leacock, Simmons and Bishop had also made quite an impression already.“The three Under-17 Rising Stars players have shown great potential this summer and have earned their places at the training camp. They will benefit from entering the High Performance Pathway and are fortunate to have two chances of playing in an Under-19 World Cup.”A squad will be selected following the camp to contest an Under-19 Tri-Nation Series in the Caribbean involving England and Sri Lanka from December 6 to 21.SQUAD – Kevlon Anderson, Daniel Beckford, , Matthew Comerie, Matthew Forde, Elroy Francis, Leonardo Julien, Avinash Mahabirsingh, Nico Reifer, Matthew Patrick, Kirk McKenzie, Kimani Melius, Antonio Morris, Ashmead Need, Rivaldo Ramlogan, Jayden Seales, Ramon Simmonds, Mbeki Joseph, Nyeem Young, Jaden Leacock (Under-17 player), Teddy Bishop (Under-17 player), Che Simmons (Under-17 player).last_img read more

UW’s Yeagley to face alma mater

first_imgGoalkeeper Alex Horwath and the Badgers will play No. 13 Indiana at the McClimon Soccer Complex.[/media-credit]First-year head men’s soccer coach Todd Yeagley is looking for a positive result against his alma mater, No. 13 Indiana, this Friday at the McClimon Complex.The Badgers will go head-to-head with the Big Ten conference favorites in a special promotional event, “Pac the Mac,” which will allow fans to view the match from behind the goals.The Badgers will go into the Big Ten opener following a strong showing in the Milwaukee Panther Invitational Tournament last weekend in which the team came away with a 1-0 victory versus Oakland and a 1-1 draw against No. 7 UC-Santa Barbara.The team, I think, did take a good step forward, and that will help us for this weekend coming up against an Indiana team that is loaded all over the field,” Yeagley said during a Monday press conference.After recording two solid results this weekend, two players were awarded with Big Ten Player of the Week honors.Senior goalkeeper Alex Horwath picked up his second Defensive Player of the Week award this year after finishing his 16th career shutout versus Oakland and keeping out eight shots against No. 7 UC-Santa Barbara. Senior striker Brandon Miller scored each of the Badgers goals in the Panther Invite, earning him the accolade of Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week.“It’s a team award, offensive and defensive,” Horwath said. “Brandon couldn’t do it by himself, I couldn’t do it by myself. Hopefully, the team takes it as motivation. We can use it as a steppingstone to get to the next level.”The whole team is looking forward to having a loud and lively student section this Friday. Yeagley believes the student support will have a huge factor in determining the outcome of the game.“With bleachers right there on the field, it can really be a boost for our team and can be an intimidating factor for the visiting team,” Yeagley said.Knowing the task ahead, the players are looking for every advantage they can to overcome Indiana.“Indiana has a young goalie,” Horwath said. “Sometimes some people get flustered. So if the students can get back there and hassle him a little bit, give him a little bit of what we normally deal with on the road, it can definitely help us. It gets us excited when we see everybody out there.”Still, the Badgers know they cannot simply rely on the home-field advantage. In 37 previous meetings between the teams, the Hoosiers hold the overwhelming advantage, boasting 30 wins, three losses and four ties.Known for their unyielding defense, the Hoosiers will be looking to stop the in-form Badgers in order to remain the favorites for the Big Ten title.“If we can just keep that confidence going from last weekend, and continue to find ways to put the ball in the back of the net … I think we’ll be all right,” said Miller, the team’s leading scorer.But it won’t be just the Wisconsin offense that will have its hands full Friday night.Sophomore Will Bruin is part of Indiana’s arsenal, coming into the game with four goals. Last year, he picked up the Big Ten Freshman of the Year award and has been the Hoosiers’ top offensive threat ever since.“[Indiana is] very good at unbalancing on the dribble,” Yeagley said. “They have some very good athletes and technical players.”The Wisconsin defensive line will be without junior Cale Cooper, who suffered a season-ending knee injury Sept. 13 versus San Diego State.“We miss Cale,” Yeagley said. “However, Eric (Conklin) has done a really nice job filling in for him and will bring a few different skill sets to that position.”Prior to his injury, Cooper started all four games for the Badgers.This game will carry extra incentive for Wisconsin with an interesting subplot. Yeagley and assistant coach Ernie Yarborough both played on the Indiana soccer team together for four years, collecting a number of titles on the way.Yeagley returned to Indiana in 2003 as an assistant coach, where he helped lead the team to four Big Ten regular season titles, two Big Ten Tournament championships and a pair of NCAA championships. Every year Yeagley was involved with the Indiana team, both as a player and coach, the Hoosiers advanced to the NCAA Tournament.“I don’t know if I’m going to have quite the emotion that some might think,” Yeagley said. “I really have a job to do, and that’s to get this group ready.”Although the coach isn’t focusing on the emotional aspect of the meeting, he admits the players are very excited for the game and are well-prepared.Despite being marked as the underdogs, the Wisconsin team is expecting a fight until the end and hopes to please a large home crowd.“The key always is that we have to focus on what we do better,” Yeagley said. “If we go out and execute our game, and be aware of their strengths and weaknesses, then we’re going to play a sound and fundamental match.”last_img read more

IHOC : LaCombe cousins bring chemistry from playing together in high school to SU

first_img Comments Published on November 30, 2011 at 12:00 pm Christina and Allie LaCombe might have different personalities off the ice, but the cousins have a perfect connection on it.‘(Christina’s) more quiet and reserved, I’d like to say. She’s very introverted. She’s extremely nice and outgoing when you get to know her, but she has to let people in,’ said Allie, a Syracuse freshman forward. ‘And I’m very social and outgoing, and I just make friends easily, so I just bring her with me places and get her to meet more people outside the hockey team.’Their personalities differ off the ice, but on it the two gel effortlessly. After three years of playing hockey at Eden Prarie (Minn.) High School on the same line, the cohesion has developed to the point where one cousin knows where the other will be even before the plays start. And though Christina is a defender, she and Allie are looking forward to connecting for multiple goals this season on SU, as they did in high school.The LaCombes will aim to get Syracuse (6-10) on the board when the Orange takes on Lindenwood (1-14) this weekend at Tennity Ice Pavilion. The two teams meet Friday at 7 p.m. and again Saturday at 2 p.m.Allie said the SU coaching staff realized how well the two played on the ice together. With Christina playing for the Orange last season, Allie was not too far behind.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU head coach Paul Flanagan said it is not uncommon for siblings or relatives to find a way to play together, even in college. The LaCombe cousins come from a big hockey family, so there was a comfort level that came with the chance to be teammates again.‘Her decision to come here influenced my decision to come here,’ Allie said.But for a season, both of the cousins were forced out of their comfort zone.With Allie and Christina a year apart, last season both had to take the ice without the other. After they played together for most of their high school careers and countless times during family pond hockey, it was an adjustment.Christina said the transition was hard because she had to find someone else to fill the void without Allie on the ice.But Allie said it also gave them the chance to grow without always relying on each other. By working on their own skills for a year, both are stronger than ever.‘Now being here, we play so much better than in high school together,’ Allie said.With both of them back on the ice again, they hope to continue to produce the way they did in high school, with one feeding the other for a goal and vice versa.And their chemistry on the ice is apparent to their teammates.‘A little play here and a little play there, like they’re more aware of what’s going on,’ senior forward Megan Skelly said. ‘They’re better able to read off each other than I would be able to read off them.’Back in high school, Allie estimates at least 75 percent of her goals came off assists from Christina. For Christina, at least half her goals came when Allie was feeding her the puck.And with that uncanny ability to read each other, both hope to find more ice time on the same line at Syracuse. Both said they are simply more confident when they’re on the ice together.‘We were on the same power-play unit for a couple games, and I hope (Flanagan) will put us on again so we can light it up,’ Christina said.Flanagan said they’ve been on and off the ice at different times for various reasons, but he said he’s hoping to put them on the same line in the near future.Whether they skate on the same line, it’s still a situation Allie is happy to be a part of. She said she wouldn’t have it any other way.‘I couldn’t ask for anything more,’ Allie said. ‘Especially being here at such a great school with my cousin as my roommate and my teammate, it’s kind of the perfect situation.’[email protected] center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

GAA proposes changes to championship structure

first_imgReplays in all championship games will be abolished, unless it finishes level after extra-time. In Rounds 1, 2 and 3 of the qualifiers, a Division 3 or 4 side drawn against a Division 1 or 2 team will automatically be given home advantage. The format of the “A” and “B” sides to the qualifier draw will be eliminated. The proposed change will also ensure that 24 counties will be out of the championship by the 3rd week in July freeing up time for club matches. The All-Ireland Semi-Finals will be played over one weekend. They’ve proposed 4 rounds of qualifiers as normal, with the 4 winners of the Round 4 games joining the Provincial Champions in the Quarter-Finals. The Quarter Finals will feature 2 groups of 4 with 2 provincial champions joined by 2 Round 4 qualifiers with the top 2 in each Group advancing to the semi-finals. The format of the draws for the Quarter-Final group stage will see each side play at Croke Park once, at home once, and away once adding 8 games to the Championship.last_img read more

Gambling Commission tackles crime at Scottish betting shops

Korea e-Sports Association (KeSPA) refuse to participate in 2017 AIMAG, Turkmenistan

first_imgThe Korean e-Sports Association (“KeSPA”) has announced today that it will not take part in the 2017 Asian Indoor Martial Arts Games (“AIMAG”), Turkmenistan. In brief, the reasons for its refusal are as follows:Esports discipline conducted by a non-international federation (and lack of general procedures as a huge sporting event);Esports disciplines decided without consensus with National Federations.The news also outlines that China, Iran, Mongolia and Vietnam are to respond to the issue with a unified statement. It comes after recent news of the esports trials at AIMAG, including the titles: Hearthstone, Dota 2, FIFA/NBA and Starcraft II.The release details in extensive detail the reasons as to why KeSPA will not participate. It mentions the history of KeSPA and AIMAG, with the former assisting the latter at the 2009 and 2013 trials. At the last AIMAG, which was held on Korea, KeSPA worked closely with the International e-Sports Federation (“IeSF”) to conduct and manage esports discipline during the AIMAG. The IeSF has been in continuous conversation with the OCA and 2017 Turkmenistan AIMAG Organising Committee for esports to continue its involvement as a title in the Games. However due to the lack internet infrastructure and budget, it was concluded that it is not able to manage esports with sufficient resources in the region.The main issue that KeSPA has is the fact that instead, the OCA has announced that esports will be managed for 2017, 2018 and 2022 games by Alisports, a private enterprise owned by Alibaba – rather than conducting itself through the officially recognised international federation, which in this case is the IeSF. It also bemoans the fact that official national team selection will not be conducted through the National Federations and National Olympic Committees, but anyone can register online and the qualifiers will be conducted online.  A further gripe is the way the specific game titles were selected. KeSPA outlines in its statement that no consensus was made with the NOC, National Federation or the athletes. It also goes on to say “it has been found through investigation, that the announcement to include esports has been conducted without consideration of the athletes, not being eligible to receive support in becoming a member of the national team squad”. KeSPA approached the Korean Olympic Committee (KOC) to ask about the participation process of the 2017 AIMAG and received the following feedback:“KOC has already finalised national team squad for all participating disciplines and therefore cannot dispatch additional esports athletes as official national team members. KOC added after their internal check, that it is a non-medal event, and moreover, that the registration platform is connected a web of a private enterprise (Alisports), and not the official registration platform of Turkmenistan Organizing Committee, an incident which has never been seen or existed before. Considering the current circumstances, KeSPA has also concluded not to dispatch national team members for the rights and interest of Korean esports athletes cannot be protected at this point of time.”The final issue that KeSPA raise is the fact that Alisports formed an organisation called Asian Esports Federation, supposedly “under the nose” of IeSF, in order to manage esports at events such as AIMAG. Esports Insider says: It’s safe to say that KeSPA aren’t happy about this at all. From what they’ve said, it’s fairly easy to see why.last_img read more

1000-player PUBG? Automaton raises $10m to overhaul survival genre

first_imgBritish independent game studio Automaton Games yesterday announced the securing of a $10m (£7.37m) investment from Cambridge Ventures as they work on a survival-combat game of enormous proportions.Automaton is on the warpath. Teaming up with games technology company Improbable, they have their eyes set on the Battle Royale-themed gaming space, where PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (‘PUBG’) is currently blazing a trail to the top of the PC market.The indie producers will be utilising CryEngine and Improbable’s cloud-based SpatialOS tech, which the company claims is ‘unconstrained by the computational and concurrent player limits of a single engine’. Therein lies the key to the ludicrous-sounding map population, which will see a thousand concurrent players occupying a single shared world, with up to 400 engaging in direct combat.It’s a novel pitch from Automaton, who describe a company-wide philosophy of ‘pushing forward virtual world development and massively multiplayer experiences’. Earlier this year, their pioneering approach was aptly demonstrated with the release of unique asymmetrical horror game Deceit, which has turned heads for its intriguing concept after a March release on Steam.Currently in development, Automaton’s as-of-yet-unnamed brainchild will feature a gargantuan map with some impressive dynamic properties. For example, the world will feature a destructive environment, changeable weather, blood trails, effects for both fire and water, and even wildlife that will roam around the map – presumably dodging bullets and reconsidering the benefits of migration.If that doesn’t sound impressive enough, the map will encompass 12 square kilometres – over double the size of PUBG’s Erangel. The decision to go large or go home was made early on –  and SpatialOS provided “an extremely natural fit”, according to Automaton CEO James Thompson.“We’ve spent the last two years building the technology for a next-generation massively multiplayer online game that requires an entirely new approach to game design and development,” James said. “This project delivers an unprecedented fidelity and scale of world simulation, and complex interactions between authored and player-driven content.”“I’m hugely excited that our next step is deploying this $10m investment to bring the game to launch in 2018.”Achieving the unachievable is a key driver for Improbable’s CEO Herman Narula, who described the company’s aim “to give developers the power to make previously impossible games.” Herman said that Automaton proved themselves with Deceit, and is looking forward to seeing what they can do next:“We’re excited by their vision for this new game: the survival genre is seeing a huge amount of attention and excitement, and we’re excited to see what this talented team can do with the massive scale, persistent world and rich systems made possible by SpatialOS.”The game is scheduled for release early next year, with the first playable content slated for access sometime in Spring.Esports Insider says: PUBG has seen a meteoric rise to the top, but this game is on another scale. Whether that will ultimately add sufficiently to gameplay to attract as significant a playerbase as PUBG commands remains to be seen. But whether the product dominates sales or not, this investment promises to push Automaton towards broadening the horizons of the gaming experience regardless.last_img read more

FBI begins investigation into Boston Marathon ‘terror’ blasts

first_imgAn investigation is under way after two explosions near the finishing line of the Boston Marathon left three people dead and more than 100 injured.The FBI has taken over co-ordination of what it described as a “potential terrorist inquiry”.Boston police say officers are working around the clock and all leave has been cancelled.At least 17 people are critically wounded, officials say, and the injuries include several amputations.In a televised address, President Barack Obama vowed to bring those behind the attack to justice.“We will find out who did this. We’ll find out why they did this,” he said. “Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice.”Although he did not use the word “terrorism”, a White House official later said: “Any event with multiple explosive devices – as this appears to be – is clearly an act of terror, and will be approached as an act of terror.”The first explosion came at about 14:50 local time (18:50 GMT) on the north side of Boylston Street, about two hours after the winners crossed the line.There was initial confusion and panic. Some runners fell to the floor while police and bystanders ran to help those caught in the blast.Then seconds later, a second explosion ripped into the crowd further away from the finishing line. TV footage showed bloodied runners and spectators being treated at the scene and the road strewn with debris. Rescuers tore down temporary fencing to reach the casualties.At an initial news conference, Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis said authorities had received “no specific intelligence that anything was going to happen”.He urged people to stay indoors and not congregate in large groups.At a second conference he said the death toll now stood at three. He said that no suspects were in custody.A local TV station reported that a search related to the inquiry was under way at a flat in a Boston suburb. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, speaking at the same news conference, confirmed reports that more than 100 people had been injured, some gravely.He said Boston would be “open” on Tuesday but that there would be “a heightened law enforcement presence”.“There will be random checks of backpacks and other parcels. We are also asking that everyone be on a state of heightened vigilance,” he said.FBI Special Agent Richard DesLauriers also appeared, saying that the inquiry involved city, state and federal officials, but refusing to give any details of the investigation.Details of the victims have also not been revealed, however the Associated Press news agency reported that an eight-year-old boy was among the dead. Quoting a family friend, the report said the boy’s mother and sister were also injured as they waited for his father to finish the race. Officers have already begun poring over video and photographs from the marathon.State police officer Roupen Bastajian had just finished the race when he heard the blasts.“I started running toward the blast and there were people all over the floor,” he said.“We started grabbing tourniquets and started tying legs. At least 25 to 30 people have at least one leg missing, or an ankle missing, or two legs missing.”A doctor at Massachusetts General Hospital said “several amputations” had been performed there. As a massive security operation swung into operation, the Federal Aviation Administration barred low-flying aircraft from within 3.5 miles (5.6km) of the site.Key sites in Washington DC and New York have also seen security tightened.Officials in Washington said no group or individual had so far said they carried out the attack.Shortly after the blasts, a fire broke out at Boston’s John F Kennedy Library a few miles away from the explosions.Police said the blaze might have been caused by an incendiary device but it is unclear whether it is related to the explosions. The annual Boston Marathon this year had a field of about 23,000 runners and was watched by hundreds of thousands of spectators.It is held on Patriots Day, a Massachusetts state holiday which commemorates the first battles of the American Revolution in 1775.British police are reviewing security plans for Sunday’s London Marathon, the next major international marathon, following events in Boston.last_img read more

MLB trade rumors: Potential sleeper moves Astros, Yankees, Phillies could make to bolster rotations

first_imgThe first name that springs to mind for help would be Jon Gray of the Rockies. There’s a couple of reasons for that. For one, he is a predominantly four-seam fastball/slider pitcher, which Houston loves, and the Astros already considered drafting him back in 2013 when they passed over him and Kris Bryant to take Mark Appel. Gray hasn’t been great, but get him to the Astros and Brent Strom and out of Coors Field and who knows what will happen. It should be noted, Gray is not available just yet, but if the Rockies continue to struggle, he very well could be.Jeff Samardzija is along the same line as Gray. He’s a four-seam fastball/slider pitcher (or at least those are his most effective pitches) and he has had to pitch in a division with some tough ballparks in Colorado and Arizona. Now, does Houston want to pay another $25 million on an older pitcher? Maybe not. But with only three pitchers locked up for the rotation next season, Houston will likely want to add a player with team control and Samardzija might be a good bridge man for a year. Houston has had interest in him in a trade in the past, as well.Phillies: Steven Matz, Mets; Marco Gonzales, MarinersThe Phillies need a lefty in their rotation — desperately. It’s why they had interest in Dallas Keuchel before the year and it’s also why they have been looking at Mike Minor of the Rangers. While their pitchers have different arsenals, all of them are right-handed, including the top three rotation of Aaron Nola, Jake Arrieta and Zach Eflin. The team has to pick up a lefty for a potential playoff run and Steven Matz is the odd man out right now in New York. He is also controllable with two years of arbitration left and has great stuff too, so he’s definitely appealing. The only question is whether the Mets would trade him to a division rival? We all know who is going to be traded at the July 31 deadline. You could write that yourselves. Madison Bumgarner, Marcus Stroman and Matthew Boyd are all likely to move and you’ve read just about all you can take on those guys.But, what about the pitchers who are going to surprise you? Because let’s be honest, there is a surprise move every year. In 2015 the Astros got Mike Fiers in the Carlos Gomez deal, in 2018, the Yankees picked up Lance Lynn and even this year Andrew Cashner has already been dealt to the Red Sox. MLB trade rumors: Here’s who the Yankees could want from teams targeting Clint Frazier MLB trade rumors: What could Yankees, Astros, Padres offer for Noah Syndergaard? Marco Gonzales probably won’t get dealt, but if the Mariners want to get a good return with a trade at the deadline, he could be the player to get it for them. He still has one year left on his pre-arbitration deal and three years of arbitration remaining. While he hasn’t been fantastic, that would definitely be enough to send some talent back Seattle’s way. He’s also left-handed and has been pretty good over the last two years. If the Mariners truly want to blow it up, then the Phillies could come calling, especially considering the two teams have a good working relationship after they made a big deal involving Jean Segura this offseason.Yankees: Aaron Sanchez, Blue Jays; Jason Vargas, MetsAaron Sanchez is the definition of a buy-low candidate, but that’s what general manager Brian Cashman loves right now. The team doesn’t want to take on big money and Sanchez is certainly not making that. He has not been good this year, though, which makes it a leap of faith to acquire him, but he has fantastic stuff and has shown flashes of great this season and was pretty good recently at Yankee Stadium. Now, it might be more of a question of if Toronto even wants to deal him because of how little value it might get for him.Jason Vargas isn’t a popular name, but he’s shown he can be a very good innings eater and will give quality starts here and there. It wouldn’t be a popular move if the Yankees pulled it off, but it would give New York someone it could pitch for a second half and possibly ease the wait for Luis Severino to return — if he does return. He could also eat up some innings late in the season while the team waits for the playoffs, which could take some burden off of Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia, who need to be 100 percent in the playoffs. MLB trade rumors: What could it take to land Madison Bumgarner? These weren’t widely talked about moves before they happened, but they did have influences on teams down the road. So who could those players be this year? We took a few of these out of left field, but, while they would be surprising, it wouldn’t surprise us if they happened.Potential sleeper moves Astros, Yankees, Phillies could make to bolster rotationsAstros: Jon Gray, Rockies; Jeff Samardzija, GiantsThe Astros are desperate for help in their starting rotation as is evident in the team’s last two pitching outings. Add that to Brad Peacock’s questionable health, Josh James and Collin McHugh’s limited current pitch counts and the team’s disappointment with their minor-league pitchers and Houston will almost undoubtedly look outside the organization for assistance.

Five things we learned in the Premier League

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Chelsea’s shock defeat against Crystal Palace breathed new life into the title race as Tottenham closed the gap on the leaders. Arsenal and Manchester City played out a thrilling draw and Liverpool won the Merseyside derby.Here are five things we learned in the Premier League this weekend:Chelsea rocked by PalaceWhen Cesc Fabregas put Chelsea ahead after just five minutes of Saturday’s London derby with Crystal Palace, it looked like the leaders’ march to the title was about to clear another hurdle. Antonio Conte’s side had won their past 10 league games at Stamford Bridge and had not lost there in any competition since September 16. But Palace have been resurgent in recent weeks and they breathed new life into the title race with two quickfire strikes. First Ivory Coast winger Wilfried Zaha fired home in the ninth minute, then Christian Benteke netted with a deft finish 91 seconds later. Chelsea were stunned and despite 24 shots at goal, their second-highest total in 29 league games this season, they were unable to find an equaliser. Chances came and went as Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey made 11 saves, leaving Chelsea frustrated as their first defeat in nine league games allowed Tottenham to close within seven points. Game on. Spurs back in the hunt As news filtered through to Turf Moor of Chelsea’s shock defeat against Crystal Palace, the realisation quickly sank in with Tottenham’s players and fans — the title race is back on. A 2-0 victory over Burnley, usually so formidable at home, was already reason enough for optimism in the Spurs camp, but Chelsea’s slip was the icing on the cake. Second half goals from England international Eric Dier and South Korea forward Son Heung-Min moved Spurs to within seven points of Chelsea with nine games remaining and even the injuries suffered by Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama couldn’t quash the north Londoners’ glee as they headed home dreaming of an incredible title triumph.Arsenal rediscovered some backboneAfter a dismal sequence of four defeats in five games, during which dissent towards manager Arsene Wenger reached a crescendo, the last thing Arsenal needed was to fall behind after just five minutes of their home game with Manchester City. Theo Walcott equalised, only for Sergio Aguero to restore City’s lead just 131 seconds later. But Arsenal dug deep to level again courtesy of Shkodran Mustafi’s header and while neither side could find a winner, Wenger’s men at least managed to stop the rot. The Arsenal manager’s future remains the subject of intense speculation, but in the short term, he said the performance against City would help “rebuild confidence”.Coutinho left Barkley in the shadeIt was a tale of two playmakers in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Everton in the Merseyside derby. Liverpool’s number 10, Philippe Coutinho, ran the show, restoring Liverpool’s lead with a brilliant solo goal after Matthew Pennington had cancelled out Sadio Mane’s opener and setting up Divock Origi for Liverpool’s third. But his opposite number, England international Ross Barkley, had a torrid afternoon. The 23-year-old seemed incapable of influencing proceedings and his display was chiefly memorable for two wild challenges on Emre Can and Dejan Lovren in the first half. The second — a crude, studs-up foul that caught Lovren on the shin — should have yielded more than a yellow card. While Barkley’s ability is clear, he remains some way short of the finished article.Home draws have hurt Man UnitedManchester United’s 0-0 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion extended their unbeaten run to 19 matches, but nobody was celebrating at Old Trafford. United have now drawn eight times in front of their own fans this season. Had they won even half of those games, they would be in the thick of the Champions League picture, instead of five points adrift of the top four (albeit with a game in hand). Top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s absence through suspension was clearly a contributing factor against West Brom. But the Swede was on the pitch when United dropped points at home to Stoke City, Burnley, Arsenal, West Ham United, Liverpool, Hull City and Bournemouth. United’s attacking problems run deeper.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Steelers lose home field advantage

first_imgCoach Mike Tomlin showed absolutely no confidence in his backup quarterbacks, Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon, as he started a severely injured Ben Roethlisberger and played him the entire game despite him being terribly ineffective, which led to an embarrassing 20-3 defeat at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers. SACKED—Ben Roethlisberger (7) is sacked by San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith during the fourth quarter in San Francisco, Dec. 19. Smith had 2-1/2 sacks for San Francisco’s stingy defense. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma) Three interceptions and one lost ball led to 20 unanswered points by the 49ers that pushed the Steelers out of the driver’s seat into the back seat of the AFC race.After the San Diego Chargers slaughtered the Baltimore Ravens 34-14, Steelers’ victories over the 49ers, the St. Louis Rams (2-12) and the Cleveland Browns (4-10) would have given them home field throughout the playoffs. But instead of going with one of his backup quarterbacks, Tomlin stayed with the banged up Roethlisberger, who could barely walk, let alone play the quarterback position. He couldn’t plant his feet because of the pain which caused inaccurate throws leading to three interceptions, and his inability to move in the or out of the pocket, led to a fumble. In essence, he made good defensive players look like Hall of Famers. Just about every turnover led to San Francisco scores.San Francisco also became the first team in NFL history to hold an opponent without a rushing touchdown through each of the first 14 games. The 49ers also have gone 36 games without allowing a 100-yard rusher. Rashard Mendenhall had 15 carries for 64 yards.“It’s very frustrating to feel like you let down your team and your fans and your coaches. It’s tough,” Roethlisberger said. “I’m not going to make excuses. I played a bad football game, I turned the ball over and that one’s on me.”Once again the defense played outstanding ball but without James Harrison, and LaMarr Woodley for most of the game, but with the offense showing absolutely no life, they could not pull off the victory.Even the announcers in the booth wondered why Roethlisberger played the entire second half despite being totally ineffective, and the game being out of reach late in the fourth quarter.If the Steelers are going to be a factor in the playoffs, Tomlin needs to make some tough decisions. The first is to bench Roethlisberger so he can be healthy for the playoffs. Batch and Dixon showed last season that they can do the job if given the chance. Now it’s time to give the ball to one of them dropping Ben down to third string for the final two regular season games. Why even suit him up.The Steelers, Ravens and Houston Texans losses put the New England Patriots in first place. Their final two games should be easy wins, against the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills. The Ravens have a tougher schedule against the Cleveland Browns and the Cincinnati Bengals. But they would have to lose both games for the Steelers to have a chance of winning the AFC North title.“I think we need to acknowledge that was 49er football tonight,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.“We played the game on their terms. They created turnovers, they got turnovers, they got us with a few concept plays, they controlled the ball offensively. We had an opportunity and we didn’t seize it. We’ll evaluate this performance and make the necessary corrections.

first_imgHORSES UNDER CARE OF TRAINERS NAMED IN FEDERAL INDICTMENT TO UNDERGO MANDATORY MINIMUM 60-DAY STAND DOWN PERIOD PRIOR TO RACING AGAIN AT STRONACH GROUP TRACKSHALLANDALE BEACH, FL – The Stronach Group announced today that all horses who were under the custody of trainers named in the federal indictment earlier this week will undergo a mandatory minimum of a 60-day stand down period and are prohibited from racing at any Stronach Group racing facility during that time.“Our goal is to keep these horses safe and from competing if there is any possibility that they may have performance-enhancing drugs in their system,” said Dr. Dionne Benson, Chief Veterinarian, The Stronach Group.  “This is being done not only to first and foremost protect the horses, but also to protect the majority of the trainers and owners who are doing things properly. We are disgusted by the conduct set out in the indictments. It is extremely important to honor our commitment to always put the health and safety of the horse first.”The trainers named in the indictment were barred from entering their horses at any Stronach Group facility earlier this week.All horses who were under custody of trainers at the time of indictment have been placed on the Official Veterinarian’s List for a minimum of 60 days.  The time period of 60 days started from the time the horse was transferred from the custody of an indicted individual.In order to be removed from the Official Veterinarian’s List, these horses must have a hair sample submitted for testing a minimum of 30 days after being transferred and must test clean for any prohibitive substances. At the conclusion of the 60 days, and with a negative hair test, the horse can work off of the Official Veterinarian’s List with approved medication for their jurisdiction and pass both a blood and urine test. Under normal circumstances only a blood test is required when working off of the Official Veterinarian’s List.The Stronach Group will also institute a stand down period for horses recently claimed from the indicted individuals.  Those horses will be placed on the Official Veterinarian’s List for minimum of 60 days, effective from the date of the claim.   All claimed horses are subject to out-of-competition testing, including blood, urine and hair testing (performed a minimum of 30 days after the claim) and must also work off of the Official Veterinarian’s List.A complete list of requirements for all of the affected horses is available from the racing offices of each Stronach Group track.last_img read more

Antic, the doublet technician

first_imgHe Barcelona He also had Antic on his bench in 2003. It was after van Gaal’s dismissal on Matchday 20 with the team three points from relegation and leaving him sixth. The Serbian had a proposal to continue in the Barça club but with the change of directive they decided not to continue.Antic continued his career on the bench of Celta, of the Serbian team which led to the 2010 South Africa World Cup and after which he was dismissed, and Shandong Luneng in 2013 and Hebei Zhonghji in 2015.Footballer and commentatorRadomir Antic leaves a great memory for his charisma in the press room and as a commentator on “Sports Carousel” of the Cadena SER and then in COPE “Playing Time”.As a footballer he began his career as a player in the Sloboda Uzice before joining the Partizan Belgrade with which he won a Yugoslav league. From there he made the jump to Fenerbahçe raising a Turkish League. His career in Spain began in 1978 with Zaragoza and two years later he went to play Luton Town English, team where he hung his boots as a player in 1984. Radomir Antic has passed away this Monday at the age of 71. The Serbian will be remembered for his time in LaLiga, especially as the coach who achieved the double with Atlético de Madrid. Antic also trained the other two greats of Spanish football, Real Madrid and Barcelona. But it was at Atlético that he made history and won the League and Cup in 1996. The Serb is the fourth coach who has led Atlético with the most games with 189 games in five seasons divided into three periods. Antic earned the affection of the Calderón who sang “Radomir, I love you”.The ex-technician began his career on the bench of the Belgrade Partisan in 1985. In his three seasons he managed two leagues. After playing for Zaragoza in 1978, he returned to the Aragonese team as a coach ten years later, leaving the team in fifth place. In 1990 the opportunity would come to train Real Madrid. Antic arrived replacing Di Stefano and he was dismissed midway through the following season with LaLiga’s leading white team.Antic trained the Oviedo two and a half seasons between 1992 and 1995 before coming to Atlético de Madrid. The Serbian wrote with gold letters in the history of the rojiblanco club when he proclaimed himself champion of the League and the Copa del Rey in the same season 1995/1996. Antic built a legendary team with Molina in goal, the defensive security of Solazábal and Santi Denia, a midfield with the leadership of Diego Pablo Simeone, the quality of Caminero Y Biscayan, the center of Pantic, the great discovery of Antic and one of the rojiblanos idols, and the goals in front of Kiko Y Penev. After finishing his first stage in 1998 he returned a year later to save Atleti from relegation, a goal for which he would be hired again in 2000 and which he did not achieve. Antic was dismissed at the end of that season. His return to Oviedo was not positive when the team dropped to Second.last_img read more

Toddler dies after being stung by scorpion

first_imgAn investigation has been launched into the death of 2-year-old Romero Lucian, who died while receiving medical attention for a scorpion bite. The lad was reportedly bitten by the scorpion on Wednesday last at his home located at Kobarimo Hill, Mabaruma, North West District, Region One (Barima-Waini).Dead: Romero LucianThe child’s grandmother reportedly told health workers that on the day in question, the child’s mother heard him crying and upon checking, she noticed a scorpion in his pants.As a remedy, the grandmother killed the scorpion and took some of its remains to rub on the wound.This, she stated, did not help and as such, the child was taken to the Mabaruma Hospital. Whilst there, the relatives were told that there was no treatment for the bite and that the child would have to be air-dashed to Georgetown.Further, the relatives were told that a plane was expected to arrive and the necessary arrangements would be made for the child to be transported. The grandmother told the media that the aircraft arrived several hours later.Nevertheless, the child was transported to Ogle Airport but there was yet another delay since they had to wait on an ambulance. Eventually, the child was admitted and the treatment commenced but soon after, the relatives were given the devastating news.It is on this note that the grandmother lashed out at the manner in which her grandson’s case was handled. The incident was brought to the attention of Regional Chairman, Brentnol Ashely, who promised a full investigation.He has since requested a report from the health authorities at Mabaruma since the medical facility should have been equipped with the necessary medication to treat snake and scorpion bites.Meanwhile, a post-mortem performed on the body of the toddler proved that he died due to the collapse of his respiratory system, which was a direct result of the scorpion bite.last_img read more

Blaze blackens acreage near I-5

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – Scores of Los Angeles County firefighters fought a fast-moving brush fire Saturday south of Gorman. Fanned by winds up to 40 mph, the blaze scorched more than 2,000 acres within four hours as it quickly spread over the rugged, unpopulated terrain. “Fire has been burning in inaccessible areas; we’re using helicopters to get into (there),” said Mike Brown, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. “Hand crews are fighting from the ground.” Flames were spotted just before 2 p.m. on the southbound side of the Golden State Freeway, north of state Route 138, but winds quickly spread the blaze. The freeway was not closed and traffic was moving normally, he said. Hand crews who hiked into the remote area planned to work through the night, hoping to cut a containment line around the flames. Authorities said the cause of the blaze is unknown but an investigation is under way.

Late Saturday, crews were still struggling to contain the fire near the unincorporated community of Gorman in northwestern Los Angeles County about 30 miles north of Santa Clarita. No structures were immediately threatened, but officials warned that if the wind changed direction, homes south of Quail Lake Road in Hungry Valley could be in danger. Record low rainfall has left the region parched and created critical fire conditions. On Friday, Caltrans announced plans to expedite brush-clearing projects on its land in areas of high fire danger. At least 30 county engines, eight hand crews and three water-dropping helicopters responded to Saturday’s fire. The city of Los Angeles also deployed a helicopter. The flames scorched acreage in the Angeles and Los Padres national forests, where a fire warning was issued earlier this week. U.S. Forest Service strike crews from both areas responded, Brown said. last_img read more

Ronaldo rocket gives Juventus scrappy win at Empoli

first_img0Shares0000Cristiano Ronaldo netted both goals as Juventus extended their unbeaten start in Italy © AFP / MARCO BERTORELLOMilan, Italy, Oct 27 – Cristiano Ronaldo struck twice, including a thunderous 25-yard drive, as Italian champions Juventus surged seven points clear in Serie A on Saturday following a battling 2-1 victory at Empoli.Empoli, without a win since the opening weekend of the season, grabbed a 28th-minute lead at the Stadio Carlo Castellani as Francesco Caputo curled home following a lung-busting run by Afriyie Acquah. But Juventus turned to their 100-million-euro man Ronaldo in the second half, as the Portugal forward equalised from the spot before blasting home a magnificent second to secure a ninth win in 10 Serie A matches for Massimiliano Allegri’s team.“It was a very complicated game. We knew it would be difficult, especially after a Champions League tie and we were a bit tired,” Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.“We stayed in the game, increased our possession, created more chances after the break and in the end deserved the victory.“I don’t remember the goal very well, I’ll have to watch it again! It all happened very quickly, but I felt confident and I went for the goal.”After Caputo’s opener, the hosts appealed for a penalty when Miha Zajc’s shot glanced the arm of Leonardo Bonucci as he attempted to charge down the attempt, but the referee opted against punishing the Italy defender after reviewing the incident on video.Empoli goalkeeper Ivan Provedel pulled off two spectacular saves in quick succession to thwart Alex Sandro and Miralem Pjanic early in the second half, as Juventus — who beat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford in midweek — saw their unbeaten record come under threat.Provedel flung himself in front of a firmly-hit effort by Sandro from close range, and then sprang acrobatically to his right to touch a Pjanic drive onto the crossbar as Empoli failed to clear after the initial attack.– ‘Moment of magic’ –But Juve hit back when Paulo Dybala pinched the ball off a dallying Ismael Bennacer in the Empoli box, drawing a penalty as the Algeria midfielder proceeded to bundle over the Argentine.Ronaldo sent Provedel the wrong way from the spot to score for the third league game running and bring Juve level on 54 minutes, as the turmoil of rape allegations do not appear to be unsettling the Portuguese forward on the pitch.After last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Genoa, Ronaldo completed a much more successful week for Juve as he unleashed an unstoppable shot into the top left corner 20 minutes from time.“I told the lads, this was a game we had to win, it didn’t matter how well or badly we played,” said Allegri. “The goal was a moment of magic from an extraordinary player and it’s something kids will try to copy in the schoolyard.”An own goal by Fiorentina goalkeeper Alban Lafont allowed Torino to make it five games without defeat following a 1-1 draw, while Atalanta collected a second win on the trot as they beat promoted Parma 3-0.Second-place Napoli can return to within four points of Juve on Sunday when they host Roma, and Inter Milan will bid for a sixth straight league victory at Lazio on Monday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgMEP Pat the Cope Gallagher has welcomed further efforts at an EU level to bring down the cost of mobile phone roaming charges.The move will affect many Donegal customers because of their close proximity to the border.Pat the Cope said today “Mobile and smart phone users can look forward to cheaper roaming costs from this summer as the European Parliament has finalised an agreement on the future of roaming for both the wholesale and the retail sector.” “Making a telephone call, sending a text message or consulting your emails whilst on holiday abroad in Europe will no longer cost a fortune.“The tariffs for mobile roaming within the European Union will substantially decrease in the next two years.”The new roaming charges will progressively go down and by July 2014, the aim is that roaming consumers will pay no more than 19 cents to make a call and 20 cents per megabyte of data.The cost of receiving a call will fall to 5 cents and sending a text to 6 cents. “Probably the most significant step forward for consumers in this Roaming regulation is the low cap on the roaming costs for data – from no caps on the costs per Megabyte so far to 0.70 EUR this summer and 0.20 EUR in 2014.”“From July this year, people will get a warning text message, email or pop-up window when they are nearing 50 Euros worth of data downloads.”The European Parliament will be voting on this decision in May and consumers travelling abroad can expect to receive lower bills from 01 July this year.”CUT IN MOBILE ROAMING CHARGES WELCOME – PAT THE COPE was last modified: March 29th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:MOBILE ROAMING CHARGESlast_img read more

Jose: City or Liverpool will be champions

first_imgChelsea boss Jose Mourinho continued to play down his side’s title chances after their stunning 2-0 victory against leaders Liverpool at Anfield.Goals from Demba Ba and Willian moved the Blues to within two points of Brendan Rodgers’ team and meant Manchester City can secure the title by winning their remaining games.Mourinho told Sky Sports: “Now we can say we won both matches against the champions. If it’s Liverpool, we won both. If it’s City, we won both.“With these three points we need one point to finish third. It was a good season for us and an evolution in many aspects of this team.“The champions will be City or Liverpool so we have nothing to celebrate.“Obviously many people would be expecting us to come here and lose 3-0 or 5-0, like others. Many people thought it was impossible to get this result.“But the boys had an amazing performance so I’m so happy for them and for the fans. This is the spirit we always want at Chelsea.“We deserved to win – no doubt about it. At 1-0 for 45 minutes we were always comfortable and never in trouble against a fantastic team with beautiful players who score a lot of goals and smash every team who comes here.”More reaction from Anfield to follow later.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Top marks for SA’s World Cup

first_imgSouth Africans were great hosts, said Fifa. Fifa President Sepp Blatter gave South Africanine out 10 for hosting a great tournament. Government believes its investments willyield great results. (Images: Bongani Nkosi)MEDIA CONTACTS• Jermaine CraigMedia ManagerLocal Organising Committee+27 11 567 2010+27 83 201 0121RELATED ARTICLES• SA ablaze as World Cup wraps up• World Cup driving SA tourism• World Cup spirit in Soweto• Bafana frenzy grips the nation• SA buzzing with World Cup spiritBongani NkosiSouth Africa has come out with flying colours for hosting one of the most successful World Cups of all time.This was announced by Fifa boss Sepp Blatter at a press briefing in Johannesburg on 12 July – after a glittering closing ceremony and nail-biting final match between the Netherlands and Spain the night before.Blatter has given the country nine out of 10 for organising the tournament with such flair. This means we got 90% for the job, as far as the international football body is concerned.This score is an improvement on the one Fifa gave the country for hosting the Confederations Cup in 2009. “At the end of the Confederations Cup I gave 7.5. They were very disappointed. Nine on 10 is the highest,” he said.Blatter said this was the most favourable rating possible, because “perfection does not exist”.“It’s not low marks. I think it’s excellent,” President Jacob Zuma said in response.The rating is based on all the Fifa requirements South Africa had to meet for the tournament to be classed as a success. With the billions of rands that went into preparations, the nation did all it could to please the Swiss-based organisation.“Compliments to the government for all the guarantees they gave and met,” Blatter said. “We trusted South Africa and we at Fifa are satisfied.“They can be proud. The compliments must go to South Africa, and not Fifa,” he added. “Africa has proven that it can host such a huge event.”World-class facilitiesIn total, government spent about R28-billion (US$3.7-billion) on infrastructure development and upgrades ahead of the spectacle, with a firm focus on stadium-building, transport and crime-prevention.Thanks to this, South Africa is now home to 10 world-class stadiums – five of which were built from scratch. More than R9.8-billion ($1.3-billion) went into the construction and refurbishment of these facilities, and the development of precincts around them.The eye-catching calabash-shaped Soccer City in Johannesburg was completely upgraded, after the older stadium on that site was dismantled. Nelspruit and Polokwane also scored impressive new stadiums, as did Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth.Almost 3.2-million spectators poured into the 10 stadiums during the month-long tournament – this is the third highest attendance in the history of the World Cup, after the US-hosted one in 1994 and Germany’s in 2006.Government beefed up public transport to accommodate football fans by pumping more than R11-billion ($1.5-billion) into the sector. R6.7-billion ($8.83-million) went towards the new King Shaka International airport in KwaZulu-Natal, while OR Tambo International in Johannesburg and Cape Town International received massive facelifts. All these facilities were ready in time for the kick-off on 11 June.Five other domestic airports – including the one in East London – were also upgraded, while the new Bus Rapid Transit system and Gautrain in Johannesburg successfully ferried thousands of fans around the city.Investments will yield resultsThe heavy investment in 2010 football projects did not affect government’s local budget, Zuma said.“The World Cup did not compromise the focus or the funding that we have maintained since 1994 on improving the health, safety, education and economic well-being of our people.”But, “bringing this event to the country compelled us to fast-track certain aspects of the country’s development”, he added.Government is also confident that the 2010 projects will benefit the country in the future: “We are sure that the investments we have made will contribute to increased tourism, trade and investment,” the president said.“This will ultimately create the opportunities and bring in the revenue for us to address social challenges.”Tribute to South Africa’s hospitalitySouth Africans’ welcoming spirit shown throughout the World Cup should also be applauded, said Blatter. “The wonderful hospitality given by the people … is something that has been great,” he said.The country proudly defied some absurd expectations of the foreign media, particularly those of the UK tabloids, which, before the tournament, warned of machete race wars in the streets, poisonous snakes at the stadiums – and even an earthquake that would hit South Africa!Mercifully, these ludicrous suggestions weren’t taken seriously by the legions of fans who came to the country.Government did its best to prevent common crimes by getting the South African Police Service to deploy 41 000 officers specifically for the World Cup, while working closely with international security agencies.There was a large security presence on the streets and at many venues, including stadiums and public viewing areas. Police were also deployed at the hotels where players and dignitaries stayed.“We have to congratulate the police services for what they have done,” Fifa secretary-general Jérôme Valcke said. “They’ve done more than we expected.”International security agencies “were highly impressed by the performance of our enforcements”, according to South Africa’s deputy president, Kgalema Motlanthe.All this praise and positivity was well expressed by a BBC journalist at the press briefing, who said: “No one doubts that this has been an incredible World Cup organised by South Africa.”last_img read more

Search Startup Bans Content Farms, But is That What People Really Want?

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Analysis#search#web marshall kirkpatrick Related Posts center_img Large quantities of low quality content, of marginal relevance, intended to draw visitors through search, but drive them to click through ads to other sites – that’s what’s called a content farm. The voices of critics of Google are getting louder with allegations that the world’s leading search engine has been thoroughly gamed and is now drowning in content farmed links. Content farm is a very subjective designation, though.Search startup Blekko is betting that web users want to search without seeing results from companies that are pumping out low-quality content just for the ad revenue. But is one person’s low quality content another person’s more-accessible reading material? Today Blekko released a list of the top 20 domains that its users have clicked the “SPAM” button on in their search results. Content from those sites will never show up in a Blekko search again, the company says. What do you think of this list?“These sites are the worst spam publishers on the Web according to our users,” said Rich Skrenta, CEO of Blekko. “They are literally responsible for millions of pages on the Web that our users say are just not helpful and they’d prefer they were banned permanently. So we’re going to do that for them.”The list is: ehow.comexperts-exchange.comnaymz.comactivehotels.comrobtex.comencyclopedia.comfixya.comchacha.com123people.comdownload3k.competitionspot.comthefreedictionary.comnetworkedblogs.combuzzillions.comshopwiki.comwowxos.comanswerbag.comallexperts.comfreewebs.comcopygator.comWant to see what search results from those domains look like? You can’t do it using Blekko anymore, but here’s a Google Custom Search Engine that searches inside just those domains alone. LoadingAre These Spam Domains? Maybe NotA lot of these domains are pretty obnoxious, but that’s just my opinion. Other peoples’ opinions are different. People complain about Demand Media’s eHow, for example, but the site also has one of the most popular free iPhone apps in the iTunes store. The content is directly useful, highly readable and easy to navigate.In a semi-literate, post-functional world, people need basic instructions on everyday matters. Picture the dystopia in the movie Back to the Future II, where Biff ends up a powerful media mogul and the world is awash in insipid, screeching, 24-hour infomercials. That’s kind of where we live, folks, and our brains have turned a little softer than some of us might like as a result.Where else are you going to learn about basic things in this world? On Wikipedia? Have you read a Wikipedia entry lately? In a semi-literate, post-functional world, people need basic instructions on everyday matters.

On Wikipedia? Have you read a Wikipedia entry lately? They trend wonky, over-detailed from the top and according to a New York Times report yesterday, written almost entirely by men.The content on the domains above may seem like spam to the egg-headed geniuses behind Blekko, and the highly discerning early customers of that site, but I don’t think they always look like spam to the rest of the people on the web. Fixya is another domain that’s on that list that I guarantee loads of everyday people are thankful for, not calling for banishment of. The site is littered with advertisements and poor writing. News flash: so is the rest of the world. That might offend the sensibilities of enough sophisticated Blekko users to click that Spam button on the Blekko site, but we’ll see who wins long-term – Blekko or the content farms.I use Blekko every day. But I don’t use it for “spam control.” The determination of whether something is spam or not is really about context. I use Blekko for other types of context filtering. The ability to set up custom lists of domains not to exclude, but to limit a search to, is what’s most useful for me about Blekko. I use the site to limit my searches and see what tech bloggers have written about a subject, or what tech industry analysts have, or bloggers who cover developments in the Middle East, or venture capitalists. I understand that most people don’t want to perform searches limited to contexts as sophisticated as that, perhaps. But those same masses of users who don’t want to do anything too sophisticated are also likely to want some easy-to-read tutorial content like what you find on eHow. Is Blekko intending to serve just people who are interested in creating their own topical collections, or are they aimed at mainstream users? Do mainstream users really dislike these sites that Blekko is now banishing? I’m not so sure they do.Banishing “content farms” may make sense in the minds of the people behind Blekko, but I’m not sure it’s the best idea for everyone.

Report: Cardiff 2 Bournemouth 0

first_imgBobby Reid scored a brace on his 26th birthday to help Cardiff City end their four-game winless Premier League streak with a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth as the club paid tribute to missing striker Emiliano Sala.It was Cardiff’s first win of 2019 and one they thoroughly deserved after successfully shackling a Bournemouth side who put four past Chelsea in their previous outing.Reid converted a fifth-minute penalty and was a constant menace to Bournemouth’s defenders, who failed to contain him when he doubled the Bluebirds’ lead just seconds into the second half. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? The result was not enough to lift Cardiff out of the relegation zone – they are two points behind 17th-placed Burnley – but on an emotional night they pulled together and delivered a result and a performance that the whole club sorely needed. Sala became Cardiff’s record signing last month when he moved from Nantes, but while crossing the English Channel his plane subsequently disappeared.Steve Cook handled a high ball in the penalty area to divert it away from Oumar Niasse after just five minutes and Reid sent the ensuing spot-kick straight down the middle to beat Artur Boruc.Bournemouth grew into the game with Josh King and Andrew Surman pulling the strings and Ryan Fraser curled a shot around the post from 18 yards with Cardiff’s defenders backing away from him.Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge made a superb save to turn Surman’s dipping 20-yard shot onto the crossbar and at the other end Adam Smith defended Josh Murphy’s cross superbly, sweeping the ball away from Callum Paterson when the winger would surely have scored at close range.The second half was just 13 seconds old when Aron Gunnarsson’s long ball forward split the Bournemouth defence and Reid took a touch to guide it past Boruc before tucking it into the empty net.Bournemouth pressed throughout the second half without giving Etheridge any real scares and Eddie Howe’s men certainly missed the creativity of David Brooks as they suffered a second defeat in four games.2 – Bobby Reid is the first player to score a brace on his birthday in the Premier League since Christian Benteke vs Southampton in December 2016.

A chat with the guys at STAG

first_imgIn 2009, Steve Shuck and Don Weir were pissed off. The scarcity of menswear stores in Austin was at an all time low, and the pair struggled to identify any single destination that provided all manner of man stuff – accessories, gadgets, grooming, etcetera. Fortunately, their disgruntlement led to the birth of STAG, a modern-day general store/haven for men stocking everything from John Derian prints to vintage Lee jackets and Hammerpress stationery.The Manual caught up with them one windy Thursday evening to talk essential provisions for the modern gentleman and weekend plans.When did you open the store?The store opened in December 2009.From where did the General Store for men concept originate?When we were thinking about the store, we recognized that Austin was riddled with loads of shops and boutiques aimed at women, but very few catering to men. The few men’s stores that existed either sat side by side with a women’s boutique (and felt like an afterthought) or were very small with little selection. We really set out to create a space exclusively for men, with an assortment of goods that met many of his needs in one place – apparel, accessories, furniture, grooming, design, music, art, gifts, and more.What is your definition of a modern gentleman?For us, he’s a guy that cares about classic style over current fashion. He’s confident in himself and his taste, yet open minded to new thoughts and ideas. He values quality and tradition, but is not beholden to old ways. He’s intellectually curious, and thinks about the world outside of his immediate view.What’s on your radar for summer? We’ve stocked the store with modern spins on classic menswear styles and fabrics for summer. You’ll find a strong selection of madras, seersucker, gingham, and other lightweight cotton favorites in everything from short sleeved camp shirts and Bermuda length shorts to more tailored suits and vests. There’s also a lot of nautical influence this summer, lots of indigos and stripes, that’s more merchant marine than Nantucket. And, as Austin temperatures will be in the triple digits soon, a great swimsuit from Saturdays or Katin and a beach towel from the Hudson Bay Company to hit Barton Springs (a natural spring-fed pool in town) along with a cooler of cold beer are a must.You talk about selecting products with ‘authentic, red-blooded style’ what do you mean by this?We mean classic items with an American point of view that can stand the test of time in both style and wear & tear. We want our guy to feel good about investing in quality workmanship and special details over trends and embellishments. We try to only select items for the shop that can be in his closet for years to come.Thanks for the chat! Do you have any exciting plans this weekend?There’s a big Grand Prix motorcycle race in town that several friends are going to, but we need to take down the 18′ Sioux tipi that’s in our back yard. It’s an amazing place to hang out with friends in the winter and spring, but absolutely brutal in the summer.

Onetime Community Crime Prevention Grants Available

first_imgThe province is helping make families and communities safer by funding projects that will reduce crime in Nova Scotia. Funding grants are available for community-based activities, projects and programs that address community needs. “We need to prevent crime from happening in the first place,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Maurice Smith, on behalf of Justice Minister Ross Landry. “By investing at the community level, we are able to help provide practical ways to address the needs of a community and, in some cases, directly impact the root causes of crime.” The One-time Community Crime Prevention Investment Grant Program awards $40,000 annually. Nova Scotians are eligible to apply for grants of $1,000 to $5,000. Previous recipients include community organizations, schools and the private sector. The Nova Scotia Police Youth Program was one of 49 recipients to get a grant in 2012, which was used to help fund a provincial youth police training weekend. “The police training weekend was an excellent opportunity for police to mentor youth from across the province and teach them leadership and crime-prevention fundamentals,” said Cst. Ken MacDonald, New Glasgow Police and training co-ordinator. “The success of the week was impacted by support from the Department of Justice and the crime prevention investment grant.” Government invests annually in initiatives that support crime prevention and community safety. Among these are the Lighthouses Program, which awards funding to community organizations that help keep youth from being involved in crime, the Additional Officer Program, which puts additional officers and resources in our communities, and the internationally recognized Nova Scotia Restorative Justice Program. Online applications for the One-time Community Crime Prevention Investment Grant Program will be accepted until Jan. 31. For more information and applications, visit read more

Moroccan Journalist Meryem Bouzaachane Gives Voice to Those With No Voice

Meknes – Meryem Bouzaachane, a 24-year-old Moroccan journalist at Al Akhbar newspaper, has won the youth journalist award in Dubai as part of the 14th annual Arab Media Forum.In an exclusive interview with Morocco World News, youth journalist award winner Meryem Bouzaachane described her life journey and the troubles and triumphs she experienced along the way.Bouzaachane prides herself on using journalism to defend people who have no way to express themselves. After obtaining her baccalaureate degree with distinction, Bouzaachane became one of the founding members of Rachid Nini’s Al Akhbar newspaper. “Journalism was a dream for me; since my childhood I wished to be a journalist neither for fame nor for money, but to be a spoken pen defending the rights of the indigent and speechless people. I desired many times to be their voice and transmit their messages,” Bouzaachane told Morocco World News. “I always receive people at the office of the newspaper and take their statements and their complaints and turn them into articles in order to crack their problems,” she continued.Bouzaachane went on to describe how her journey was an unexpected one. “Once, I failed the enrollment test for the Higher Institute of Media and Communications (ISIC). I was going to study engineering, but in the summer I was truly impressed by a series narrating a tale of a journalist in the Iraq war. And I said ‘I should be like that journalist,’ and I no longer wanted to be an engineer.”Bouzaachane continued, “I made many efforts to persuade my father in order to go to Casablanca and study in a private institute of journalism there. Ultimately, thanks to God, my childhood dream came true,” Bouzaachane said.Bouzaachane encountered many obstacles. First, she faced the difficulty of finding information for articles and the bureaucracy that all journalists face. Additionally, some ministers decline to make statements and interviews for fear of political backlash. Moreover, she also faced safety issues common to her field, with the possibility of being sent to prison for an article that reveals too much always looming over her head and limiting her ability to publish the truth.Currently, Bouzaachane hopes to keep on the investigative path her life has taken her down. She hopes to enhance her journalistic potential through the training she’s received at home and abroad and benefit from her diverse educational background. “I always dreamed of obtaining awards in order to show the value of journalism in Morocco and show people that their voice is heard,” Bouzaachane concluded.© Morocco World News.

Duterte drug war an example to the whole world says Sirisena

After his government vowed last year to “replicate the success” of the Philippines’ drug war, Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisena again heaped praises on President Rodrigo Duterte’s top crusade, saying it is an example to the whole world, ABS-CBN News reported.In his toast during a state banquet in Malacañang, Sirisena said Duterte’s drug war is also a personal example to him. Official police data put the death toll from drug operations at a little over 5,000, but human rights groups say this figure is significantly lower than the actual number of killings.Sirisena is in the country for a five-day state visit that will also see him visit the Asian Development Bank in Mandaluyong, and the International Rice Research Institute in Los Baños. (Colombo Gazette) “Excellency, the war against crime and drugs carried out by you is an example to the whole world, and personally to me. Drug menace is rampant in my country and I feel that we should follow your footsteps to control this hazard,” he said. While lauded by Duterte’s supporters, the war on drugs has drawn global condemnation for the mounting deaths linked to it. read more

Increased minimum wage a win for workers Brock labour studies prof

Tuesday’s announcement to raise the minimum wage in Ontario should be considered a victory for the labour movement, says a Brock University professor.Simon Black, Assistant Professor in Brock’s Centre for Labour Studies, calls the announcement by Premier Kathleen Wynne to raise minimum wage to $15 by 2019 a “huge victory.”“Right now, the minimum wage is poverty wage,” Black says. “We can’t have people working upwards of 40 hours a week and then at the end of the year they’re still below that poverty line cutoff.”Under the announced plan, the legal minimum hourly wage will increase from the current $11.40 to $11.60 in October, then to $14 on Jan. 1, 2018, and to $15 one year later. The plan also includes additional benefits such as increased vacation time and equal pay for part-time workers doing the same job as full-time staff.That $15 per hour threshold was something the labour movement has been fighting hard for, says Black, who was part of the international “$15 and Fairness” campaign.“I think (the increases) are great, but they shouldn’t be seen as a gift bestowed upon low-wage workers by the Liberal government. This is the product of a social movement, a product of organizing and mobilizing. This didn’t just materialize out of thin air,” Black says.To criticism that the increased wages will hurt small businesses, Black says it will all balance out.“This will give minimum-wage workers more money in their pockets to buy the things they need, which will contribute to growing the economy.” read more

After being relegated to the sidelines Etienne Sabino is making noise on

Redshirt junior linebacker Etienne Sabino had an interesting road to a starting job for the Ohio State defense. After Sabino lost the job to current senior Andrew Sweat last spring, he and the coaches decided a redshirt might be in the his best interest. The decision was difficult for Sabino to cope with. “I would say it was probably one of the hardest years of my life,” Sabino said. “The toughest part was sitting on the sideline on Saturday and not being able to play.” Injuries to OSU’s defense and special teams units almost forced Sabino to give up his redshirt and play, but the team held out, giving him more time to grow. Despite his yearlong hiatus being difficult, Sabino said it helped him develop as a player. “I think I really got a better grasp of the defense as a whole,” he said. “As far as with me redshirting last year, I really think that helped me in that sense.” With another year in the system, Sabino is projected to be a starter at middle linebacker this season, replacing last year’s leading tackler, Brian Rolle, who recorded 76 tackles. Sabino said learning the defensive schemes has helped him progress as a linebacker. “It actually slows the game down for you when you’re out there and not thinking, and you can just react and know what you have,” he said. “It just helps your game and your overall football knowledge.” As a junior, Sabino is expected to take on a leadership role for the Buckeye defense, and junior defensive back Orhian Johnson said he thinks Sabino has blossomed into someone the defense can rely on. “He’s definitely stepped up into that leadership role,” Johnson said. “He’s been showing his dedication a lot, and I just really feel like he’s ready to let it all go and go out and perform.” Junior defensive lineman John Simon said Sabino’s presence on the defense makes the group better. “He’s a physical player and he gets the whole defense riled up,” Simon said. “We love having him out there when he’s making plays for us.” Spring practice has proven Sabino is ready to contribute to the defense, Simon said. “Right now is probably the best I’ve felt,” Sabino said, “and I feel very comfortable out there.” Johnson said he thinks Sabino has always had the talent but that he has become even better this spring. “We saw bright spots for him in his future,” Johnson said, “but he’s definitely stepped up a lot.” Even with the progress he has made in the system and the talent he has, Sabino said there is room to improve. “I’m really just trying to work on my little techniques and really just trying to get better in that sense,” he said. “I’m just focused on every day — I’m trying to get better every day.” With a young defense and the departure of starting linebackers Rolle and Ross Homan, Sabino said he is working to be a force on this year’s version of the Silver Bullets. “I’m just trying to be a playmaker,” he said, “and just help this team win in any way that I can.” read more

This fortnightly project watch is a great way of keeping up to date with your peers – other mining companies, other consultants or other engineering companies. These issues build into a global mine project overview. If you are a supplier – it is full of potential sales leads.The official opening ceremony of the Perkoa zinc project in Burkina Faso was held on-site on the 19 January 2013 with over 1,000 people attending including representatives of Glencore and Blackthorn Resources as well as senior government officials and Prime Minister Tiao. The commissioning of the process plant is on-going with test batches of concentrate continuing to be produced. Glencore has previously agreed to provide development capital of $120 million to fund the expanded project construction and commissioning via a combination of project equity and project loans. In addition, Glencore agreed to provide or source a working capital facility to a maximum of $20 million, for a total financing package of $140 million. Commissioning is now expected to be complete by the end of February 2013. This revised estimate brings the total cost of the project to the end of commissioning (including Blackthorn Resources’ initial $80 million capital spend) to approximately $260 million.Oromin Explorations, on behalf of Oromin Joint Venture Group (OJVG), has announced the positive results of its 2013 Carbon-in-Leach (CIL) feasibility study (FS) and Mineral Reserve update for its OJVG gold project in Senegal, West Africa. The FS was compiled by SRK Consulting (Canada). Highlights include an average gold production for first three years of full production at 182,000 payable oz/y; average LOM gold production of 144,000 oz/y; both open pit and underground gold mining with a current mine life of 17 years; and a probable mineral reserves increase of 64% to 2.335 Mo of contained gold since the 2010 FS – the OJVG gold project now hosts the largest gold reserve in Senegal.Marengo Mining has received pricing for a fixed lump sum, turnkey, Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for development of its Yandera copper-molybdenum-gold project in Madang Province, Papua New Guinea from major Chinese engineering, construction and mining company, China Nonferrous Metal Industry’s Foreign Engineering and Construction (NFC). The EPC pricing provides a strong foundation for the completion and delivery of the Yandera feasibility study, which is scheduled for completion in March 2013. As previously advised, NFC has prepared its EPC pricing by working in parallel with the Feasibility Study team as part of the overall development strategy at Yandera. Other infrastructure, including mining fleet, pre-strip and power transmission line, subject to the completion of the pending feasibility study, is currently estimated in the range of $300-400 million for a total project capex in the range of $1.7-$1.85 billion.Ivanplats has announced that an intensive drilling program during 2011 and 2012 at the company’s Flatreef Discovery in the Northern Limb of the Bushveld Complex in South Africa has dramatically expanded and upgraded the Flatreef precious- and base-metal mineral resources. Speaking in a keynote address at the Investing in African Mining Indaba Conference, Robert Friedland, Executive Chairman, said that a new mineral resource model based on drilling results audited by AMEC E&C Services of Reno, Nevada, has upgraded more than 220 Mt of the Flatreef Discovery’s previously declared Inferred mineral resources into the higher-confidence classification of Indicated mineral resources.Flatreef’s Indicated mineral resources now total 223 Mt grading 4.1 g/t 4PE (platinum, palladium, gold and rhodium), 0.34% Ni and 0.16% Cu, at a 2.0 g/t 4PE cut-off grade and at a cumulative, average true thickness of 24.3 m.

We have significantly de-risked the project and now have one of the largest tungsten reserves outside China. We are confident that Sisson is on track to earn the necessary environmental and construction permits from federal and provincial regulators in 2014, and Northcliff will be pursuing partnerships with global companies interested in the Sisson project or tungsten off-take agreements, positioning Northcliff to achieve the financing necessary to initiate project construction in 2014 and commissioning by 2016.”There’s much more information in the report, which runs to nearly 40 pages.last_img read more

Seller Confidence Gets a Boost

center_img For Redfin, the top answer on its latest Home-Seller Sentiment Survey was a pleasant irony. When asked to list their top three concerns about selling their homes, a quarter of the sellers who responded said they had none.This was a marked jump in seller confidence, if measured against the last time Redfin surveyed sellers in January. April’s numbers reflect a nine-point jump in unconcerned sellers, and “no concerns” leapt from the eighth-most common answer to the top of the list three months later. There was also a drop in the percentage of sellers worried about finding a replacement home, down from 24 percent in January to 18 percent in April.Redfin credited a strong selling season in March for the boost in confidence. One measure of increased confidence was that sellers adopted a more aggressive pricing strategy. The share of sellers reporting they would price high because they believe negotiation in inevitable increased almost 6 percent, to 21 percent in April.At the same time, the firm’s chief economist, Nela Richardson, said prospective sellers have been slow to list their homes.“New listings dropped 2.3 percent in the first three months of the year compared to the same period last year,” Richardson said. “Would-be sellers are likely waiting for prices to peak; they’re trying to time the market to fetch the largest possible gain.”Whether this is a good thing is open to debate. Sylva Khayalian, a Redfin agent in Los Angeles, said, “Over-pricing one’s home is a common mistake made in a seller’s market. Especially as we progress through the spring and into the summer months, homeowners see neighbors receive multiple offers and sell for more than their asking price and some assume they can ask for even more.Another measure of seller confidence is that a fifth of sellers told Redfin they had all the power in a sale right now. That’s up 7 percent from January. Meanwhile, 22.5 percent of sellers said buyers have zero power. That’s up 9 percent from January.Lest that come across the wrong way, the bulk of respondents put things a little more modestly. Almost 36 percent of sellers said they had a little more power in a negotiation and sale than buyers. And that number was actual down since January. Then, more than 40 percent of sellers had the same thing.But whether that number dropped because more sellers think buyers have greater leverage or because they shifted their views from “some” to “all” in terms of the power sellers hold is unclear.

Kanzi apple harvest kicks off in Australia

first_img Kanzi apple harvest kicks off in Australia … Berries Australia: Govt must do more to address la … Australian veggie exports jump in 2018 … The company noted that berry industry volume remains high, with corresponding pricing offsets being the consequence, particularly in the peak season. Blueberry volume was up +25.2%, with pricing down -7.5%, while raspberry volume growth was +19.1% and pricing down -6.3%.Costa also said that it had established a dedicated varietal improvement facility at Atherton (FNQ) with the aim of developing varieties specifically suited to low latitude environments, both in Australia and overseas, especially China and Mexico.The citrus category, which Costa said achieved a “standout result” for the financial year, benefitted from a late start to the 2017 season and early start to the 2018 season coupled with excellent crop quality and strong export market demand for navel oranges and seedless mandarins.The 2018 calendar season is forecasted to produce circa 80,000 metric tons (MT), a 20% reduction on the prior season, reflecting the normal biennial bearing cycle of citrus crops.The company said that with 75% of its citrus exporting to countries including Japan, the U.S. and China, the reduction of Korean citrus trade tariffs has opened up an exciting new export market, highlighted by the fact that consumer preferences are similar to those of Japan, but with greater per capita demand.International berry growthThe company noted its China expansion program is progressing well, with a total of 100 hectares planted at the end of the financial year. These plantings are across three farms, with 77 hectares of blueberries, 16 hectares of raspberries and 7 hectares of blackberries.”A further 65 hectares consisting predominantly of blueberries is to be planted in 2019, with significant development and preparation work completed ahead of the current wet season. Land options for 2020 plantings are also currently being explored,” it said.Morocco blueberry plantings totaled 294 hectares at the end of the period across six farms, including 21 hectares in Agadir (720km south of its existing farms) for season extension. The 2018-19 program will focus on further plantings in Agadir.OutlookCosta said that during 2019 “significant scale” will be delivered in mushrooms and avocados, and together with growth in tomatoes and berries they are expected to provide long-term sustainable returns.Based on the current trading conditions, the company expects to generate low double-digit profit growth in the year ahead to June 30, 2019. Australia ups efforts against Queensland fruit fly … center_img You might also be interested in Australia-based Costa Group registered a 26% rise in net profit to AUD$76.7 million for the 2018 financial year, thanks partly to strong export demand for citrus which offset challenging conditions for blueberry production in Morocco.Australia’s biggest listed fresh produce company also notched 10% revenue growth to AUD$1 billion over the period ended July 1.In its results, the company announced a AUD$67 million expansion of glasshouse tomato production in New South Wales and said it has made six avocado-related acquisitions over the last 18 months.“Performance in FY2018 once again reinforces the value and resilience of our diversified portfolio and business model,” said Costa Group CEO Harry Debney.”The citrus category had a standout performance, boosted by excellent crop quality and strong export demand, while mushrooms and tomatoes also performed well, with results exceeding targets.”This performance countered a materially lower than expected contribution from African Blue due to prolonged cold weather, causing up to an eight week delay in maturity of the Moroccan crop.”Costa said it made “significant progress” during the year on its growth projects, including berry expansion plantings across Australia, China and Morocco, continued construction of additional capacity at the Monarto, South Australia mushroom farm and expansion of ist avocado business – the company’s newest vertically integrated core produce category.Berries and citrusCosta said blueberry production over the period was impacted by lower yields. It said the cold Northern Hemisphere spring and early summer period delayed the Morocco harvests, with yields in the country around 10% lower.
