Instead of physical walls, glass tube and corner-less sash divide the space vaguely. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe glass tube that rises up from the garage functions as a ventilating device. It becomes the space that can install EV in the future. I paid my attention to reflectivity rather than permeability of the glass and it plays the role of the light pillar.

Save this picture!SectionThe ceiling height of the garage is 3m to be able to park the camper. I designed composition of a skip floor by using the height. The sight spreads not only to a horizontal direction but to top and bottom diagonally. There are various crossing sights in the house, and the sights lead to trees and sky of the further ahead. In the narrow space, by shifting your eyes aslant, the body inclines naturally.

12 ways charities are fundraising #PoundForPound with the new £1 coin

Putting a value on (28) £1 coinsMacmillan Cancer describes the new coin by numbers. And points out that 28 of these coins could pay for one hour of care from a Macmillan nurse.

Donate the old coins too while you canSt Joseph’s Hospice is inviting the public to donate the ‘old’ £1 coins, before they are withdrawn from circulation. They are just as valuable of course. 4.

Certainly charities overseas have noticed the new currency.That said, a £1 donated now to a charity is probably a better investment. 10.

Authorities poised to cut all communications at drop of hat

President Nursultan Nazarbayev is on the point of signing draconian amendments to the communications law that were passed by parliament on 2 April.If he goes ahead, the authorities will not only be able to block any website or social network in a matter of hours without a court order, but also to disconnect all means of communication.“These amendments legalize the most extreme forms of censorship,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “It is intolerable that the Kazakh authorities are assuming the right to disconnect all networks at the drop of a hat.“The explicit reference in these amendments to unauthorized demonstrations reveals their purpose, which is to prevent any criticism of the government even if it means dealing a fatal blow to freedom of information.”The communication law’s new article 41-1 says the authorities are empowered to temporarily disconnect any network or means of communication and block access to any online resource in the event of “harm to persons, society or the state” or “dissemination of information contravening the electoral law (…) or containing incitement to take part in extremist or terrorist activities, mass unrest, or mass (public) actions organized in violation of the established regulations.”The Communications and Information Agency will have one hour to transmit a blocking order from the prosecutor-general’s office to the competent operators and services, which will in turn have three hours to block access to the designated websites or social networks. The same procedure is envisaged for the suspension of communication services. “The criteria serving as grounds for blocking online resources are so broad and vague that they open the way for way for the most repressive interpretation,” Deloire added. “The political use of these measures is all the more likely because they require nothing more than administrative decisions, without any hearing and without any opportunity for the targeted sites to defend themselves. And since the operators and other technical intermediaries will have just a few hours to comply, they are unlikely to pay much attention to detail.”The amendments are the latest in a series of tough measures designed to nip any protests in the bud. On 28 January, the government approved a decree subjecting the media to prior censorship in “emergency situations of a social nature.” President Nazarbayev, who has ruled since independence, began accentuating his regime’s repressive nature after rioting in Zhanaozen in December 2011.Aside from uncertainties about the aging leader’s succession, some analysts link the latest repressive reforms to fears of an opposition movement inspired by the Ukrainian revolution. Others think they have been prompted by the panic following the devaluation of the national currency, the tenge, in February and the spread of rumours, especially by SMS, about the failure of three Kazakh banks.The amendments to the communications law come amid a regional trend towards more Internet censorship. In Russia, websites carrying calls for unauthorized demonstrations can be blocked without reference to the courts under amendments that took effect in February. In Turkey, government officials can block content that is “discriminatory or insulting” or “violates privacy” under a new law whose repressive scope was demonstrated when Twitter was blocked on 20 March and YouTube was blocked on 27 March.(Photos : AFP Photo / Johan MacDougall, Leon Neal – Pool / Getty Images) Kazakh reporter accuses police of attacking her RSF_en October 30, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Mayo Hernández tries to take his life, sees death as the only way out

first_img CubaAmericas to go further October 15, 2020 Find out more CubaAmericas Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders is extremely worried about the condition of Mario Enrique Mayo Hernández (photo), a journalist who has been detained since March 2003 and is serving a 20-year prison sentence. His wife and mother have reported that he tried to commit suicide twice and is still determined to end his life. The health of fellow-journalists Alfredo Manuel Pulido López (held like Mayo since March 2003) and Oscar Mario González (who was arrested in July) is also very worrying. RSF_en Organisation New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council RSF and Fundamedios welcome US asylum ruling in favor of Cuban journalist Serafin Moran Santiago October 12, 2018 Find out more Receive email alerts Follow the news on Cuba News News Reporters Without Borders today voiced deep concern about the condition of imprisoned journalist Mario Enrique Mayo Hernández after his wife and mother reported that he tried to commit suicide twice and is still determined to end his life. He has been detained since March 2003 and is serving a 20-year prison sentence.“Mayo cannot take any more, physically and mentally, nor can his family,” the press freedom organisation said. “Does death offer the only relief in Cuban prisons, as exiled journalist Raúl Rivero asked last week when fellow journalist Victor Rolando Arroyo Carmona was on hunger strike? We call on the Cuban authorities to free Mayo and all of the other 22 imprisoned journalists at once.”After many hours of wait and uncertainty, Mayo’s wife and mother were able to see him in Kilo 7 prison in Camagüey for about 30 minutes on 12 October. His wife, Maidelin Guerra, told Reporters Without Borders that he very debilitated, both physically and psychologically, and is determined to take his life.“He has written ‘Innocent. Freedom’ in large letters on his body with razor or a nail or something else he found, on his stomach, arms and face,” Guerra said. “He told us he would continue to write these words on himself until there was no more room and then he would commit suicide. He kept repeating to us, ‘I shouldn’t be here. I’ve done nothing.’ He cannot stand it any more.”Guerra added that the prison officials are “paving the way” by already disclaiming any responsibility in the event of Mayo’s death in prison. She said he should be receiving treatment but she had no way of verifying it. Mayo tried to take his life twice already by hanging himself with sheets or wire.Guerra also told Reporters Without Borders that Alfredo Manuel Pulido López, another journalist held at Kilo 7 prison, is confined to his bed. He is suffering from acute depression and migraines for which he needs to undergo tests. Arrested in the black spring of 2003 like Mayo, he is serving a 14-year prison sentence.Meanwhile, Oscar Mario González, who was arrested on 22 July, was hospitalised on 11 October. His wife, Mirta Wong, explained that during her most recent visits, he was suffering from memory loss and had difficulty putting sentences together. González is awaiting trial on charges that carry a possible 20-year prison sentence.

Zimbabwean journalist Hopewell Chin’ono denied bail

first_img RSF_en News to go further Reports Zimbabwean journalist Hopewell Chin’ono on September 2, 2020. Jekesai NJIKIZANA / AFP The winner of CNN’s African Journalist of the Year award in 2008, Chin’ono has been held since 3 November of charges of contempt of court and obstructing justice for tweeting that he had been told that the controversial president of the Zimbabwe Miners Federation, a powerful boss under former President Robert Mugabe, would be granted bail after being arrested during an attempt to smuggle 6 kilos of gold.Chin’ono will himself remain in a high security prison after being denied bail today. His lawyer, Doug Coltart, told RSF that the decision was clearly a “reprisal” and an attempt to silence someone who has been “at the forefront of the fight against corruption in Zimbabwe”. Coltart said he would appeal.“This journalist, who was already held for six weeks a few months ago and who is now having to sleep alongside some of the country’s most dangerous criminals, has absolutely no case to answer and is clearly the victim of an attempt to silence him,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “We firmly and unreservedly condemn the judicial harassment to which he is being subjected and we call for his unconditional release. His latest arrest speaks to the legacy of repression typical of the Mugabe era that the new authorities are proving slow to shake off.”Chin’ono spent a month and a half in prison on a charge of inciting an anti-government protest following arrest on 20 July. He was arrested just weeks after helping to expose a case of overbilling for medical supplies to combat the coronavirus pandemic that resulted in the health minister’s dismissal. He was finally released on bail in that case pending trial on 7 December.Despite the promises of change that accompanied the Mugabe’s fall in 2017, the press freedom situation is still very disturbing in Zimbabwe, which is ranked 126th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the Zimbabwean judicial system’s persecution of investigative journalist Hopewell Chin’ono after a Harare court refused to release him on bail today in connection with the tweet for which he was arrested nine days ago.

Protest over banning of journalists from press conferences

first_img Receive email alerts Follow the news on Serbia Organisation News to go further Reporters Without Borders today condemned local authorities in the region of the southern city of Novi Pazar for drawing up a blacklist of undesirable journalists ahead of press conferences.Enes Halilovic, local correspondent for the news agency FONET and the newspaper Blic, was banned from a press conference given by the EU and Swiss ambassadors on 25 September. The authorities said he had been excluded because he gave “too negative a view of the city of Novi Pazar”.The same journalist has also been denied entry to the city hall. He was strongly advised by the mayor’s personal bodyguard to apologise for his critical articles.“Whether the authorities in Novi Pazar like it or not, political leaders are not authorised to decide who has access to information which they make public and who has not,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.Both ambassadors, who were made aware of the situation, expressed support for Enes Halilovic by refusing to take part in the press conference, judging it unacceptable for the restrictions to be placed on journalists and on press freedom in general.“We urge the authorities in Novi Pazar to review the basis on which journalists are allowed into press events so that the freedom to inform the public and plurality of opinions are respected,” the organisation said.It had discovered the case was far from an isolated one. Similar action has been taken against several journalists in the region and Reporters Without Borders obtained information that the authorities were drawing up a blacklist of journalists ahead of each press conference.

Permanent gains from temporary workers: smart casuals

first_img The latest developments on agency workers’ rights have placed the spotlight on working conditions for temps. How can HR deal with them fairly and legally? Roisin Woolnough reportsThe role of temporary workers in the UK labour market has never been under so much scrutiny. Last month, the European Union confirmed that it was to agree to the CBI and TUC’s deal to give agency workers equal pay rights to permanent staff after working for an employer for 12 weeks, despite a directive pressing for those rights to be in place from day one.But that’s no excuse for employers to sit back on their laurels. Temporary staff account for three per cent of workers at any one time, according to the Confederation of British Industry. And at the moment, that demand is even higher than normal as many employers are trying to fill skills gaps without taking on more permanent employees. A report earlier this year by professional services provider KPMG and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation shows that demand for temp workers is buoyant, while permanent staff hires are in decline. The credit crunch is partly to blame, with employers loath to take on new staff in case they have to lay them off again, with all the ensuing costs and bureaucracy. Employers enjoy the flexibility of being able to take on and then shed temps as demand fluctuates, or as internal finances dictate. “There has been a shift towards some employers hiring temps rather than committing to full-time staff,” says Richard Grace, joint managing director at recruitment firm Gordon Yates. “This is because they can backpedal more easily.”Justifying the costMark Roberts, operations director at recruitment agency Gap Personnel, says employers are also keeping a close watch on the cost of temps and making managers account for any extra labour expenditure. “Many businesses are really focusing on their cost base and therefore making their senior managers justify the use of temporary labour,” he says. Susan Fanning, partner at law firm DLA Piper, thinks that – despite the EU’s decision to agree to equality after 12 weeks – the status of temporary workers is still bound to change over the next 18 months or two years. “One way or another the current position will change,” she says. “It is not clear what the next stage of the directive is, but there is bound to be some movement this year when the French get behind the [European Union] presidency this month.”Fanning says the main emphasis of the directive is on access to pay and the same benefits and employment conditions as permanent staff. There is also the controversial possibility of employment protection on the dismissal side. UK businesses have been lobbying for these changes to come into effect – if they have to – at 12 months. But at the moment, Fanning says it is looking as if the cut-off period will be six weeks. The directive is meant to protect and be beneficial to temps. However, the increased costs and administrative burden that it is bound to cause could actually work against them and lead to a reduction in demand for their services. “Although there are strong arguments for and against the AWD, the general feeling in the recruitment industry and across our clients is that it could stifle the flexibility of agency workers,” says Roberts. “Furthermore, industry analysis carried out by the CBI found that 57 per cent of companies questioned would decrease agency use under the AWD and 10 per cent would stop using agency labour completely.”Employment status claimsBusinesses don’t want the extra costs or administration and nor do they necessarily want temps to start making employment status claims. To protect themselves, Fanning says employers must make sure that all paperwork relating to agency workers reflects that they are an employee of the agency. “And be careful about including agency employees in more mainstream areas, such as training,” she says.That said, a chief complaint made by temps is that they are treated as second-class citizens in the workplace. A Gordon Yates survey found that 27 per cent of temps dislike the limited career development of temporary work, 14 per cent dislike the lack of recognition, and six per cent dislike not being part of a team. Yet, temps have a lot to offer and may even be able to teach in-house staff a thing or two. “An advantage of agency staff includes the potential extent of their experience,” says Isabelle Simon-Evans, assistant director of people and organisational development at the charity, The Children’s Society. “Experienced agency staff who have carried out a variety of placements may come with a wider knowledge base of processes and systems and an ability to hit the ground running.”Be careful that your permanent staff don’t feel outdone though. Managers need to let permanent staff know what any temps are being brought in to do and why and that everyone is to work together. Integrate the temp with your permanent workforce, particularly if it’s an assignment of some longevity. “A little bit of input and integration goes a long way,” says Grace. “Some companies are very good at bringing temps in, getting them accepted and part of the team quickly.”Take good careThe temp needs to feel an important, valued part of the workforce. If employers want to get the best out of the temps they use – and happy people tend to make better, more productive workers – they need to take care of them. This begins with induction. Induct a temp well, make sure they know what they’ve been hired to do and why and there’s a greater chance they can do the job they have been hired for.For some organisations, their casual workforce is so important that they take very good care of them. Many large retail organisations keep individuals on a database and re-hire them during busy periods. Asda has 10,000 seasonal workers on its payroll for key times of the year, such as Easter, Christmas and the current sunny season. “They are contracted to work a minimum of 10 weeks a year,” says Stuart Price from the colleague relations team at Asda. A major benefit for Asda of retaining these seasonal workers is that they can hit the ground running. “We only have to train seasonal colleagues once,” he says.Many of them will be on board now that summer is here. The agricultural industry, catering and hospitality, tourism also all make heavy use of temps over the summer months. So as HR departments build up their summer workforce, the need to think long-term about your temporary workforce is more pressing than ever. Top tips: Dealing with agency workers’ rights Don’t stick your head in the sand. The situation will continue to move this year so be ready for it Keep an eye on developments Consider getting involved on the lobbying side When new legislation comes in, make sure your paperwork reflects that agency workers are employees of the agency, not yourselves.

Rec Department Copes With COVID By Livestreaming Games

first_imgBy DONALD WITTKOWSKIIt’s not exactly NBA TV.You won’t see LeBron James, Joel Embiid or Luka Doncic throwing down dunks or hitting three-pointers.But perhaps there are some future Lebrons, Joels or Lukas in the making. Call it mini-NBA TV.Parents wanting to see their children showing off their moves on the basketball court may now watch the games on livestreaming offered by the Ocean City Recreation Department.Livestreaming of the Recreation Department’s community basketball league for kids in the third to eighth grades is yet another innovative way for parents and grandparents to share in their children and grandchildren’s lives in the COVID age.Dan Kelchner, director of Ocean City Community Services, called it a “creative solution” for coping with the challenges of the pandemic.“It’s one of the things where the unique circumstances of COVID allowed the Recreation Department and the community to get together to overcome something that presented itself as a problem,” he said.The state’s COVID moratorium on large gatherings prevents parents and grandparents from attending the basketball games, which take place every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Ocean City Intermediate School.As an alternative to watching the games in person, the Recreation Department borrowed the video equipment from the Intermediate School’s library to livestream the action.“We’re getting positive comments from parents,” Recreation Supervisor Kristie Fenton said, adding that grandparents enjoy it, too.A link is sent by the Recreation Department to the families for the livestreaming. The first games on Jan. 16 were not recorded. However, the department now plans to record the games, allowing the players to watch themselves after they get home, Fenton said.Fenton characterized it as “phase one” of a broader livestreaming program that will also include the Recreation Department leagues for children’s indoor soccer and lacrosse.Games are also being recorded so the children can watch themselves after they get home.Indoor soccer and lacrosse are coming up after the basketball league wraps up on Feb. 27. Registration for basketball is now closed, but the Recreation Department is opening it up for other sports. Visit for details.Children from Ocean City, Upper Township and Sea Isle City participate in the leagues, Kelchner and Fenton said.In the past, the Recreation Department used the Ocean City Sports & Civic Center at Sixth Street and the Boardwalk for league games. The sports center, however, is under reconstruction now for an expansion project, so the basketball games are taking place at the Intermediate School.“The only way we could do anything was through our continued collaboration with the school district,” Kelchner said of the help from the Intermediate School.For sports and other activities for even younger children, the Recreation Department is offering the “Little Rec’ers” program Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Eighth Street Recreation Center in Ocean City.Essentially, children between the ages of 3 and 5 from Ocean City, Upper Township and Sea Isle enjoy a half day of activities ranging from arts and crafts to sports, yoga and even science, Kelchner said.In the past, there was a fee for the Little Rec’ers program, but the city is now offering it for free during the pandemic.Sign-ups for the program are on a daily basis. Visit for details. The Ocean City Recreation Department children’s basketball league games are now being livestreamed for parents and grandparents to watch.

A season of surprises

first_imgThis is one in a series of profiles showcasing some of Harvard’s stellar graduates.Shanna Peeples was back in her home state of Texas. It was week eight of the COVID-19 quarantine and despite the circumstances, Peeples was feeling grateful.After spending three years in the Doctor of Education Leadership (Ed.L.D.) program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE), she had at last reached a milestone: Her final paper, all 25,240 words, was written, edited, revised, and uploaded to her adviser.The paper was an interesting end to her time at Harvard. Although she had worked for years as an education reporter before spending 15 years teaching middle and high school students in Texas (and earning the honor of National Teacher of the Year in 2015), Peeples  had never really expected writing to continue to play such a major role in her graduate school life. Yes, there would be term papers to knock out and emails to answer; that was a given. But during her three years at the Ed School, she also managed to write content for “Pedagogy of the Obsessed,” the education podcast she started with a few other students in her program, and blog about current events. She even wrote and published a book for teachers, “Think Like Socrates: Using Questions to Invite Wonder and Empathy into the Classroom, Grades 4‒12.”“That’s been the biggest surprise, how much I’ve leaned on writing while here,” Peeples says. “I guess, in a sense, writing becomes a pair of lungs. It is so much a part of me. Still, I didn’t think it was good enough, for want of a better term. When you’ve done something for so long, and you go to a place like Harvard, you think, now I need to step up my game. I’ve got to do something new and groundbreaking. For me, it was more of the same, but with different opportunities with the writing” — the blog, the podcast, and the book. “If I think about the deepest part of what Harvard did for me … it gave me this integration of so many things and it let me write myself into more authenticity.” — Shanna Peeples, Ed.L.D. ’20 Writing also gave her the chance to synthesize the three areas that she has found her life consistently orbiting around: connecting through words, schools and learning, and social justice. Never was this more apparent than during the second year of her doctoral program, when she took a class at the Harvard Kennedy School with public policy lecturer Timothy Patrick McCarthy. McCarthy asked the class to write an op-ed. If they got it published, great, but the goal was to play around with advocating for something.Peeples knew exactly what she wanted to write about. She had just finished co-teaching a section on gender and sexuality as a teaching fellow in one of Kay Merseth’s undergraduate education courses. While teaching the section, she did something she had never done before: She stood up in front of a group of students and identified herself as someone who is gay.“Having a gay identity in the Texas panhandle was always something I had to hide and be quiet about,” she says. “I certainly couldn’t be out at all as a teacher. That was always something that was difficult for me as a teacher. I always felt like I was not being authentic, and being authentic was a deep value for me. I always felt like I was in my own way there.”But sharing her truth to the undergraduates as a teacher in Merseth’s class changed everything.“I wasn’t prepared for what that would do for me, and certainly not what it would do for these kids,” she says. “One of them came up to me after and said, ‘I’m a senior and you’re my first out teacher.’ That was really surprising to me. I had a very emotional experience with the students.” “Having a gay identity in the Texas panhandle was always something I had to hide and be quiet about.” — Shanna Peeples The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news.center_img She ended up interviewing four of the students who identified as gay, bisexual, queer, and transgender, and then wrote her op-ed for McCarthy’s class. Not wanting it to end there, Peeples decided to post “The Importance of an Out Teacher for LGBTQ Youth” last September on her Medium account, where it gained attention from educators from all over the world.“That was the piece where all of this came together for me as far as an identity,” Peeples says. “That was amazing, and it continues to get hits. The people I’ve heard from, the teachers around the world who read it and said it helped them. There are so many places where that’s a dangerous thing: to be out and a teacher.”Now back in Texas, Peeples is consulting with a number of schools on issues of equity and working with teachers who were also past teacher of the year winners at the national, state, and territory level — something she has done for the past four years. She is also thinking deeply about what’s next in our new virtual realities, and what this means for how we communicate, at work and in schools. And she is writing, for others — and herself.“If I think about the deepest part of what Harvard did for me, and my time at Harvard, it gave me this integration of so many things and it let me write myself into more authenticity,” Peeples says. “It let me write myself into the courage to be who I am. It helped me do the one thing I couldn’t do in 15 years in a Texas classroom: be a role model for students, particularly queer students.”last_img read more

Brazil, Peru, and Colombia Join Forces to Fight Crime on Border Rivers

first_imgBy Andréa Barretto/Diálogo July 27, 2016 Brazil, Colombia, and Peru have agreed to join forces tocombat unlawful activities through the Memorandum of Understanding to CombatUnlawful Activities on Border or Shared Rivers, signed by the three countriesin 2008 and promulgated by Brazil in March of 2016. “Operations are conducted individually (by each of theArmed Forces on its own), jointly (with the other Brazilian Armed Forces), orcombined (with the other border countries, including Colombia and Peru),”explained Rear Admiral Flávio Augusto Viana Rocha, director of the Center ofSocial Communications for the Brazilian Navy. “One of the farthest-reaching operations conductedperiodically is the so-called Operation Ágata, coordinated by the Joint Staffof the Armed Forces (reporting to the Ministry of Defense), in which the Navy,the Army, and the Air Force act jointly with multiple agencies like the FederalPolice Department and the Federal Revenue Service,” Rear Admiral Vianaadded. The latest iteration of Ágata took place June 13th to 22nd and covered the full length of Brazil’s border – nearly17,000 kilometers, including the 9,523 kilometers of borders formed by rivers,lakes, and canals. During the 11 days of the operation, 720 inspections weredone on vessels. Navy conducts daily prevention and enforcement actions The 9th Naval District Command, headquartered in Manaus inthe state of Amazonas, is the Brazilian Navy unit responsible for Brazil’sborder rivers as well as those shared with Colombia and Peru. Its coverage areaalso includes the states of Acre, Rondônia, and Roraima. There are 768 service personnel involved every day inpreventive and penal activities aimed at monitoring the enforcement of laws andat fighting crime on river borders, which are coordinated by the 9th Naval DistrictCommand, according to Rear Adm. Vianna. Five patrol ships are used during these activities, alongwith speedboats from the port authorities, police stations, and agenciesdistributed throughout the military unit’s jurisdiction, which extends throughouta 26,000-kilometer waterway network. The Army employs 6,340 personnel on the borders with Peruand Colombia The Army has already deployed around 6,340 service personnel in the border regions with Peru and Colombia who are subordinate to the military organizations of the 2nd, 16th, and 17th Jungle Infantry Brigades. “The Brazil-Peru-Colombia border has 19 Special BorderPlatoons that stop vessels every day, seeking to combat transbordercrimes,” the Amazon Military Command (CMA, for its Portuguese acronym)explained through its communications office. “These platoons also do at least one borderreconnaissance operation in their areas of responsibility along the borderrivers, citing anyone who commits a crime,” the CMA added. Less lethal weapons and munitions are employed during theseactions, in addition to standard-issue weapons and munitions (pistols and lightautomatic rifles), as well as Army vessels and helicopters. The Federal Police keep watch on the Solimões River The Federal Police is the main agency tasked with combating narcotrafficking in Brazil. In September 2015, the agency reopened the Anozl Base on the triple border with Colombia and Peru, a set of two floating check points set up on the banks of the Solimões River. “Since waterways are the primary method of transport inthe region, nearly all the illicit drugs produced in Peru and Colombia aretransported along the Solimões River,” stated Alexandre Silveira deOliveira, Regional Executive Officer of the Federal Police Administration in Amazonas,in a report published by Diálogo on November 23, 2015, concerning the AnzolBase. Federal agents work at one of the floating check points,inspecting boats and passengers, while Army solders remain on alert on theother, ready to intercept any vessel that threatens to flee the scene. In addition to this ongoing action, the Federal Police alsoparticipates in operations with the Armed Forces, such as Operation Ágata. Example of operations among the three countries The most comprehensive operation ever done by joint forcesfrom Brazil, Peru, and Colombia was Operation Traira, which ran April 4-8, 2016. Traira covered a total area of 1,426 kilometers, equal insize to the state of São Paulo.last_img read more

Helping 9th graders experience the “real world”

first_img 58SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Lacey Yasick Lacey is the Communications Manager for the National Credit Union Foundation. She works to develop and execute all communication efforts that support the Foundation’s national programs and engagement strategy.Lacey … Web: Details “He told me how he was getting frustrated from having a good amount of money, to barely having $20 at the end. He told me he can see how hard it is for his dad and myself…raising four children and both working full-time jobs. I was happy, and proud that he got to experience a little of what being an adult is and what comes with it,” said the mother of a child who attended High Plains Federal Credit Union’s Reality Check Day.This was the reaction of a parent whose 9th grader just attended a special experiential learning event put on by their local credit union in collaboration with the United Way of Eastern New Mexico, and over 2o community partners. Through the combined efforts of the community partners, High Plains Federal Credit Union (HPFCU) created a “Reality Check Day” at a local high school. What is a Reality Check Day you may ask?Through an Experiential Learning Grant distributed from the National Credit Union Foundation, HPFCU was able to host a day-long event called “Reality Check Day” that placed high school students into the shoes of their future selves, and sensitized them to the financial hardships that some American families experience every day.HPFCU utilized CUNA’s Mad City Money program, a hands-on experience that allows students to learn some of the financial challenges they will face when they start life on their own. Students identify their career and starting salary, and are required to complete a budget sheet requiring them to live within their monthly means.Throughout the fair, there are many temptations for additional spending, helping students learn to balance needs versus wants. This experience helps students to learn about finances, budgeting, and how hard it might be for their parents to provide for their families.In addition to the Mad City Money program, the Reality Check Day also included a Poverty Simulation/Life Simulation, in which the students learned what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family, struggling to survive month to month. This simulation helps students to be more aware of the daily realities that many families face each day, and the emotions that come from money stress and making financial decisions.“Reality Check Day made an impact on over 580 freshman students plus their parents, teachers, community leaders and over 60 volunteers,” said Veronica Barnard, MSR Manager at HPFCU. “It was an eye opener for the students. They learned about debt, cash flow, budgeting and life as a low income family. In addition to new knowledge, they also took away valuable skills such as completing employment applications, time management, the use of a financial institution, how to find community resources, and the importance of saving for unexpected expenses. They now have a sense of how important finances are in their family’s day to day life. They have also created a relationship with their parents about finances that they never understood before.”This Reality Check Day made a lasting impact on these 9th grade students, who are now better prepared for their financial future. Through the hard work of their local credit union, and valuable community partners who volunteered their time, these students were given a dose of reality.You can see a video highlighting the Reality Check Day here. last_img read more

3 myths about young people and credit unions

first_imgSince the beginning of time, older generations have been claiming that “kids these days” are somehow in worse shape than their elders ever were — don’t let your credit union fall into that same dismissive mindset!If you haven’t thought much about bringing young people into your credit union or incorporating younger generations into your financial institution’s marketing strategy, it’s time to reconsider. First things first, let’s clear up some popular misconceptions about young people and finance:Myth #1: Young adults aren’t a very valuable market for credit unions. It’s true that teenagers and twenty-somethings haven’t yet reached their prime borrowing years — but it’s also true that much of the current credit union market has passed that stage of their financial lives! Finance experts will tell you that prime borrowing years fall between the ages of 30 and 50. The average credit union member is nearly 50 years old.By beginning to build relationships and recruit young members now, you can set your credit union up for success in the future. If you bring Gen Zers or young millennials into your organization now, your credit union can expect to thrive for years to come. continue reading » 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

FDA finds Salmonella in crackers amid recall flurry

first_imgJan 19, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The company implicated in the national Salmonella outbreak has recalled more of its peanut products, some distributed beyond US borders, as Kellogg Corp. announced today that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found the pathogen in one package of its peanut butter sandwich crackers.National peanut butter brands sold through retail stores have not been linked to the Salmonella outbreak, but the FDA has warned consumers to avoid any commercially made products containing peanut butter—such as crackers, cookies, and ice cream—and any peanut butter served in institutions such as schools and nursing homes until investigators determine more about the scope of the contamination.Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), based in Lynchburg, Va., said yesterday in a press release that it is expanding the recall of peanut butter made at its Blakely, Ga., facility and is voluntarily recalling peanut paste made at the same plant. The company said the peanut butter and peanut paste were distributed to institutions, food services industries, and private-label food companies in 24 states, the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, Korea, and Haiti.”In addition, affected product was used as an ingredient in other products that may have been distributed in other states,” the company said, emphasizing that none of its recalled peanut butter is sold to consumers through retail stores.The peanut butter and peanut paste involved in the expanded recall was made on or after Jul 1, 2008, at the Blakely, Ga., facility. The company said tests on environmental samples and a small number of unopened containers have yielded Salmonella, though the company did not say if the pathogen matched the national outbreak strain of Salmonella enterica serotype Typhimurium.The recall affects 200 lots of peanut butter and peanut paste as well as 52 lots of coarse natural paste, according to PCA.PCA is advising companies to segregate and hold the product and call PCA for further instructions.Meanwhile, Kellogg Corp. said in a press release today that Salmonella has been found in one package of its Austin peanut butter sandwich crackers, one of the brands the company has already recalled. The company did not indicate if the Salmonella found in the package of crackers matches the national outbreak strain.On Jan 14 customers and consumers were advised by the company to hold certain cracker brands pending more information from PCA. Two day later Kellogg recalled the products and said it has asked its salespeople and a retrieval company to remove the recalled products from store shelves.In other developments, more companies recalled products that may contain possibly tainted peanut butter or peanut paste supplied by PCA. The companies include:Ralcorp Frozen Bakery Products: Wal-Mart Bakery peanut butter cookies, peanut butter no-bake cookies, and peanut butter fudge no-bake cookies; Lofthouse brand peanut butter cookies, peanut butter no-bake cookies, and peanut butter fudge no-bake cookies; Parco Foods’ Chuck’s Chunky food service peanut butter cookies; Pastries Plus gourmet cookies; Food Lion Bake Shop peanut butter cookiesMeijer: cheese and peanut butter sandwich crackers, toasty peanut butter sandwich crackers, peanut butter and jelly ice cream, peanut butter cup ice creamGeneral Mills: Larabar peanut butter cookie flavor snack bars, JamFrakas Blisscrisp peanut butter flavor snack barsSo far the outbreak strain has been connected to 474 illnesses in 43 states, according to a Jan 17 update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The outbreak may have played a role in 6 deaths, and 107 case-patients have been hospitalized.Agriculture officials in Georgia and Connecticut have isolated Salmonella in unopened 5-pound jars of King Nut peanut butter and are awaiting further test results to determine if the pathogen matches the outbreak strain. Earlier this month, public health officials in Minnesota found the outbreak strain in an open container of King Nut peanut butter, a bulk brand that is produced by PCA but is distributed to food service institutions by King Nut Corporation.See also:Jan 19 Kellogg press releaseJan 19 General Mills press releaseJan 18 CIDRAP News story “FDA warns not to eat selected peanut butter products”Jan 19 Meijer press releaseJan 18 Ralcorp Lofthouse press releaseJan 18 Ralcorp Wal-Mart product press releaseJan 18 Ralcorp Food Lion press releaseJan 17 CDC Salmonella outbreak updateJan 18 FDA outbreak updatelast_img read more

With the grim distinction of the highest suicide rate among G7 nations, Japan adopted legal and corporate changes that helped lower the toll to just over 20,000 last year.Worried the current crisis will reverse that downward trend, frontline workers are urging the government to boost both fiscal aid and practical support.”We need to take steps now, before the deaths begin,” said Hisao Sato, head of an NGO that provides counseling and economic advice in Akita, a northern prefecture long known for Japan’s worst suicide rate.National suicides fell 20% year-on-year in April, the first month of the country’s soft lockdown, but experts said that was likely due to an internationally recognized phenomenon in which suicides decrease during crises, only to rise afterwards. “It’s the quiet before the storm, but the clouds are upon us,” Sato said.Prevention workers see echoes of 1998 when a sales tax hike and the Asian economic crisis first drove annual suicides above 30,000, then to a peak of almost 34,500 in 2003.Economic circumstance is the second biggest reason for suicides, behind health, according to 2019 police data, which also shows that men are nearly three times more likely to kill themselves than women, and most are in the 40-60 age group.The current crisis, which is forecast to shrink Japan’s economy 22.2 percent this quarter, is especially dangerous for cash-strapped small and medium-sized businesses for whom government subsidies might not arrive in time.”It’s tough. A lot of people are really worried,” said Shinnosuke Hirose, chief executive of a small human resources firm that has lost nearly 90% of its business. “It’s like waiting at the execution grounds to see if they survive or not.”A Health Ministry official in charge of suicide policy told Reuters his department planned to ask for more money from a $1.1 trillion central government stimulus package to help fund measures such as extra hotlines. The official, who declined to be named as he was not authorized to speak on the record, added there were limits to central government action and local efforts were crucial.Jobless linkSome believe the steps taken in recent years to bring down the suicide rate will hold firm through the current crisis, but others are not so sure.Kyoto University’s Resilience Research Unit has predicted 2,400 more suicides for each 1% rise in unemployment. If the virus subsides in a year, unemployment could peak at around 6% by March, lifting annual suicides to around 34,000, it estimated. If pandemic conditions persist for two years, a rise to 8% unemployment by March 2022 would see suicides spike over 39,000.”Of course social support is important … but they won’t be able to ramp this up suddenly,” said unit director Satoshi Fujii. “Preventing bankruptcies will start helping immediately.”At the Tokyo Befrienders call center, the phones continue to ring. The formerly nightly service now opens on Tuesdays only, with one volunteer a shift instead of four, although it plans to reinstate another day in June.”Everyone has tried hard to get through lockdown, but now they’ll reflect and think ‘why was I doing it? What hope do I have?'” Nakayama said. “At that time I think a lot could choose death.” The phones at the Tokyo suicide hotline start ringing as soon as it opens for its once-weekly overnight session. They don’t stop until the lone volunteer fielding calls from hundreds of people yearning to talk signs out early the next morning.Both operating days and volunteer numbers at the volunteer-run Tokyo Befrienders call center have been cut to avoid coronavirus infection, but the desperate need remains.”There are so many people who want to connect and talk to somebody, but the fact is we can’t answer all of them,” center director Machiko Nakayama told Reuters.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Mackay stands firm as sack looms

first_img Mackay received an ultimatum via email from owner Vincent Tan on Monday, telling the 41-year-old to quit his post, or face being sacked. Details of the message first emerged on Thursday night. Mackay did not attend Friday’s pre-match media conference ahead of the trip to Anfield, with assistant David Kerslake taking his place. But the former Watford boss has travelled to Liverpool with his squad for what appears almost certain to be his last game in charge. Discussions between club directors had taken place throughout Friday, with Tan flying into the UK from Malaysia on Friday evening. Press Association Sport understands Dalman met with Tan in London on Friday night to discuss the situation. Mackay regards Dalman as a close ally having helped him through the loss of head of recruitment Iain Moody in October. But it is believed relations between Tan and Mackay have deteriorated to such an extent that there is little chance of the Bluebirds’ boss escaping the axe, despite Dalman’s attempt to intervene. Mackay had been due to face the media on Friday morning ahead of the game at Anfield, but instead it was his assistant Kerslake who spoke at a press conference which lasted barely five minutes. Kerslake refused to discuss Mackay’s situation. He said: ”I am here to talk about the Liverpool match, I came in this morning and was asked to do the press conference. Malky Mackay looks set to take charge of Cardiff for the last time at Liverpool on Saturday despite chairman Mehmet Dalman’s efforts to earn the Scot a reprieve. ”Malky is in the training pavilion as we speak, we are just here to talk about the game.” When asked if Mackay was still in charge, Kerslake added: ”No one has said any different to me, everything has been as normal. Players have got on with their jobs. ”Without being boring it has been a normal week.” When Kerslake came in for more aggressive questioning on Mackay’s position a club spokesman stepped in to say: ”Malky Mackay is unavailable to speak to the media, the assistant manager is here.” He later added: ”Malky Mackay is still in charge, I have spoken to Malky this morning.” When faced with further queries on Mackay, Kerslake consistently replied: ”I will answer any questions you have about the game of football tomorrow.” Tan’s email to Mackay had outlined his grievances with the former Watford boss at great length. The owner was highly critical of Mackay’s signings, style of play, results and record as a manager. It concluded with the ultimatum that the Scot quit or be given the boot by the controversial Malaysian businessman. Mackay, who led Cardiff to the 2012 League Cup final before securing the Championship title last term, has previously stated he would not resign from his position, and it is believed it could cost Tan somewhere in the region of £3million to sack him with his contract running until 2016. Mackay’s position as Bluebirds boss has been under scrutiny since Tan removed Moody in October amid suggestions of a summer transfer window overspend, something the Scot and Moody denied outright. The problems at the club deepened on Monday, the same day as Tan’s email was sent, when chief executive Simon Lim released a statement claiming Tan was ”extremely upset” at Mackay’s comments that he hoped to bring in three players in January, and that there would not be ”a single penny” available to spend next month. The latest row with Tan has also seen odds on the Scot becoming the next West Brom manager slashed. Former Manchester United striker and current Molde boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and ex-England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson have already been tipped as possible replacements for Mackay. Turkish manager Yilmaz Vural has also emerged as a contender; just a matter of weeks ago Cardiff chairman Dalman had denied knowing who the 60-year-old, who has managed over 20 clubs in his homeland, even was. Dave Jones, Bluebirds boss between 2005 and 2011, had also been mentioned, but a return to the Welsh capital for the former Sheffield Wednesday manager is thought to be unlikely.

Mourinho dismisses Costa reports

first_img Costa was substituted with five minutes of the first half remaining as the Barclays Premiership League champions ended their season by dispatching Sydney FC 1-0 at ANZ Stadium, Loic Remy with an excellent goal. Mourinho revealed that Costa’s demeanour around the squad is not that of a player seeking to leave. ‘He’s the guy responsible for everything good we have in the dressing room,” the Chelsea boss said on the club’s official website. “He’s so happy, so funny. He enjoys every minute and is the happiest guy in the dressing room. If this is unhappiness I’m happy with that. He was not happy with the news.” Mourinho was pleased with Costa’s attitude as Chelsea, who fielded a host of regulars including Eden Hazard and John Terry, brought down the curtain on a long season in front of a crowd of 83,598 in Sydney. “Diego tried, but we didn’t want to take any risks. I told him to give the fans at least half an hour and he played until the 40th minute. We felt that was enough,” Mourinho said. Mourinho was far less impressed with English prospect Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Chelsea’s great hope of producing a home-grown first-team regular. The Portuguese stated that his relationship with Loftus-Cheek had moved “one step back” for what he viewed as a lazy performance by the 19-year-old midfielder, who departed Sydney with a scathing assessment from his manager ringing in his ears. “Ruben said he had a pain in his back, but what I was feeling was that he only had the pain when Sydney had the ball,” Mourinho said. “When Chelsea had the ball he was playing very well, but when Sydney had the ball I think he was more impressed by watching Nemanja Matic and John Obi Mikel work, instead of him working. “So, with Ruben, it’s one step back in terms of my relationship with him. If he doesn’t know what it is to play for me and Chelsea, it’s one step back. “He has to learn that at 19 you have to run three times more than the others, you have to play to your limits and not play like a superstar with the ball at your feet because this is not Under-18s. “The Under-18 competition is too easy for him. He’s too good to play in the Under-18s. “But I don’t accept that when he’s playing in midfield with Mikel and Matic, when we don’t have the ball he doesn’t press, doesn’t have intensity and he’s waiting for everybody else to recover the ball. “I don’t accept that in the superstars so how can I accept that in a kid? He has to learn what it takes to play for us.” Jose Mourinho insists Diego Costa is content at Chelsea in response to reports linking the Spanish striker with a return to Atletico Madrid.

West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace laments over Saido Berahino situation

first_img It read: “Sad how i cant say exactly how the club has treated me but i can officially say i will never play Jeremy Peace. The Baggies rejected a total of four bids from Tottenham while they also turned down Berahino’s transfer request last month, a nd while the club are yet to address his apparent outburst directly, Peace admitted they must move on. “We have a key player who has been very unsettled by antics which were designed to get him out of our club cheaply,” he said in a club statement. “Those tactics have continued despite my making our position clear in my first conversation with Daniel Levy on this subject in mid-August. “I said selling Saido so late in the window was not on our agenda. “Tottenham’s offers failed substantially to reflect Saido’s true value while the timing made no allowance for our own recruitment of a suitable replacement for a proven Premier League goalscorer. “Saido has been unsettled to the point where our head coach has not felt able to select him for our last three games. “We are now left with the task of repairing the damage created by this unfortunate episode.” West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace insisted the Baggies must start repairing the damage left by the Saido Berahino saga. Press Association It is understood Tottenham’s bids on Tuesday were marginally better than the north London club’s second offer, made last month, which would have only risen to £21million with clauses and add-ons. The Baggies remained determined to keep the 22-year-old at the Hawthorns after Peace held talks with the player last week and reiterated he would not be sold. Albion are understood to be unhappy with Spurs’ approach to the deal, which has only strengthened their resolve to keep Berahino. The frontman has been left out of West Brom’s last three squads during the speculation, with boss Tony Pulis insisting he was not in the right state of mind to play. Spurs had been searching for more firepower to help Harry Kane and, despite signing Son Heung-min from Bayer Leverkusen, maintained their interest in Berahino. He scored 20 goals last season and earned a call-up to the England senior squad, but missed this summer’s European Under-21 Championship with a knee injury. The Albion owner rejected two deadline day bids from Tottenham for the striker who has appeared to have indicated he will never play for the club again. In a message on his official Twitter account, the striker seemed to hint he was prepared to go on strike at the Hawthorns. last_img read more

Shafer shoots down questions about McDonald-Lester switch, puts topic to rest

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Regardless of how the questions were phrased, Scott Shafer shot them down.Holding his weekly press conference Thursday morning, the Syracuse (2-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) head coach didn’t entertain questions about his demotion of George McDonald from offensive coordinator to solely wide receivers coach and his subsequent promotion of quarterbacks coach Tim Lester to the head of the offense. The switch was announced Monday following the Orange’s third consecutive loss on Friday.In his interview sessions earlier in the week, Shafer discussed the matter and how the coaching staff has handled it. But as a meeting with No. 1 Florida State (5-0, 3-0) loomed 50 hours away, the head coach put his foot down Thursday morning.“Every decision I’ve made is in the direction that points towards the best interests in developing our players and becoming a better football team,” Shafer said. “I’m not going to go backwards and rehash all these things. I don’t believe in living life that way.”When a reporter attempted a follow-up question, Shafer cut him off before the question could be finished.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I’m having a hard time with your questions because I’m not looking forward to going backwards and I’m not going to do it,” Shafer said. “You want to keep asking them, you can. But I’m done. I answered them. I feel good about where we’re going and it’s not in the best interests of this team to continue to go backwards, so I won’t.”About six minutes later, Shafer was asked if he was concerned about the trend in college football of coaches leaving programs and bringing recruits with them.McDonald’s demotion raises doubt about his future in Syracuse — and as a master recruiter, doubts about the Orange’s recruiting future have surfaced — but Shafer again took a firm stance and declined to discuss the negative implications of his decision.“You’re asking backwards again,” Shafer said. “You two need to get together because I don’t want to talk about this and I’m not going to because it’s not in the best interests of our team. The best interests of our team is to say we’re fighting our butts off as a family to get better every single day. I know you guys get paid to look backwards, but that’s not what we’re doing because that’s a waste of time.“I’ve addressed it. I’m done addressing it and I really can’t say any more.” Comments Published on October 9, 2014 at 11:35 am Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbblast_img read more

First Three Points Excites Remo Stars’ Ugbade

first_imgNPFL…NPFL…NPFL… By Duro IkhazuagbeAfter recording his first victory in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) against Abia Warriors yesterday, Technical Adviser of Remo Stars FC, Nduka Ugbade heaved sigh of arrival in the topflight.Victor Mbaoma’s penalty kick was enough to give Remo Stars it’s much awaited first win of the season against Abia Warriors in the Match-day three the Gateway International Stadium in Sagamu,According to Ugbade, it was a well deserved victory for his team that have no experience in the NPFL and very happy that they have now been able to get their first victory in the league.“It’s a deserved victory that the guys who have no experience before in the NPFL have now been able to get their first victory in the league.”“The next thing here is to keep fighting for every match, points and getting wins and draws, this will boost them psychologically to know that there is nothing there.”“All that is there is experience and it can be acquired over a period of time, though we don’t have too much of time in a league that is more like a marathon.”The goal came in the 90th minute when Abia Warriors defender handled the ball in the box while trying to stop the Sky Blue Stars from getting a goal.It was an entertaining 90minutes as both sides thrilled their fans with ball artistry.The game started on a high as Remo Stars had chances of getting a goal ahead of the visitors in the early minutes of the game.Fans of Remo Stars were thrown into jubilation mood after Captain of the side, Victor Mbaoma scored from the spot to make it three goals in three games.The next point of call for the Sky Blue Stars is an away game against Nasarawa United on Wednesday.In Port Harcourt, Guy Kuemian netted the only goal of an underwhelming NPFL Match-day 3 contest as Rivers United FC defeated Niger Tornadoes 1-0.The attacker volleyed home a Lukman Mohammed’s cross after the hosts sprang Tornadoes’ offside trap in the 22nd minute. Victory for the pride of Rivers moves them up to third place on the NPFL standings with seven points while Tornadoes remain bottom of the log with a solitary point from their first three matches. Sunday’s display by the ‘Pride of Rivers’ was anything but convincing as they had to rely on several heroic stops from goalkeeper, Sunday Rotimi in the second half to hold out for what could turn out to be potentially crucial points in the home strait of the season. In truth, United made life complicated for themselves by fluffing a plethora of chances when cold-bloodedness and precision by their attackers could have ended the game as a contest long before the midway stage of the second half. . Unrelenting pressure eventually yielded fruit in the 22nd minute as Kuemian fired home an unstoppable volley with Tornadoes failing horribly in their attempt to play a high line. Chances were few and far between for the rest of a half that failed to hit the heights as both side struggled for sustained levels of fluency in their passing and movement. Tornadoes improved dramatically after the break and were extremely unfortunate not to level matters on more than one occasion.United’s Technical Manager, Stanley Eguma was less than impressed with his side’s display and rued the many missed which could have made the win more emphatic. “It was a very difficult game for us. We never underrated Tornadoes because it is a game of football. “We planned to win but unfortunately, we did not have a very good game. “We won but we were not able to string the passes (together the way we usually do). “My players were jittery and we lost the midfield battles to our opponents and it made them have the upper hand,” he said at the post match press conference. Tornadoes coach, Bala Abubakar spoke about a game plan which was carried out to perfection against storied opposition.“Rivers United is a big team representing Nigeria on the continent. “Our team is seventy percent new and gradually, we are trying to stabilize the team. “We came here (to Port Harcourt) with a game plan. “We knew it would be difficult but we gave a very good account of ourselves,” he said.Rivers United next travel to Nnewi to play FC Ifeanyiubah while Tornadoes have a home fixture against Wikki Tourists.  Both games will be played on Wednesday.  At the Agege Stadium in Lagos, a fierce display from Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club saw coach Fidelis Ilechukwu and his wards dispatch visiting Lobi Stars 4-0.A hat-trick from Stephen Odey and a thunderous shot from Tchato Giscard capped an interesting Match-day 3 for the Lagos-based outfit.Ilechukwu made five changes to the side that suffered 4-0 defeat on Match-day 2 at FC Ifeanyiubah with Agbane Candy dropped to the bench.Lobi Stars gaffer Godwin Uwua fielded his trusted players to give his side a chance of at least getting their first away points of the season but they bowed to the superior attacking play of MFM FC as they suffered yet another away defeat.Teenage striker, Stephen Odey opened the scoring for MFM FC after 27 minutes of exchange with a brilliant lob over Lobi Stars goalkeeper, John Lawrence off an assist from Sikiru Olatunbosun.The Olukoya Boys travel to Ibadan for a date with Shooting Stars on Wednesday in an encounter tagged the ‘Southwest Derby.’ Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Andy Murray: U.S. Open singles ‘not the target’ after Queen’s Club doubles win in return

first_img“I sort of have a bit of a decision to make,” he said. “I either set a goal of maybe trying to play singles post-U.S. Open and then I would maybe have a few weeks training. Two weeks training after Wimbledon and then maybe keep going with some doubles through the U.S. Open swing. “Or take a little bit more time to train and maybe give myself three or four weeks, another month of building up and playing some singles.”I could potentially try just before then at some of the tournaments, like Cincinnati or Winston-Salem. I could do something like that, but I need to see my team. I’m just really happy that my body’s fine, I’m feeling good, I’m healthy and I’m going to take my time.”I’m not going to rush this because I don’t want to and I don’t need to and if it means not playing singles until a bit later fine I’m just happy to be back on the court with no pain in my hip.” An emotional Murray said that his tennis career may be over when he pulled out of the Australian Open in January before going under the knife again.The 32-year-old hopes to play singles this season but is unsure how soon he will be able to go it alone.It really happened.Andy Murray.

Then I might be able to play singles close to the U.S. Open.”But getting to the U.S. Open this year and being competitive isn’t the target.”Murray, who will pair with Marcelo Melo in the doubles at Eastbourne this week before teaming up with Pierre-Hugues Herbert at Wimbledon, also discussed his options on court after his Queen’s success.

Kobe Bryant dies at 41

first_imgBryant was a five-time NBA champion in a career that began in 1996 straight out of a high school and lasted until his retirement in 2016.He also was a two-time Olympic gold medalist, helping spark the US squad of NBA stars to titles in 2008 at Beijing and 2012 at London.Bryant bowed out of the NBA in 2016, scoring 60 points in his final appearance before his adoring fans at the Staples Center.It was a fairytale farewell to a sporting career which had begun two decades earlier.The son of former NBA player Joe “Jellybean” Bryant, the Lakers legend was born in Philadelphia in 1978 while his father played for the 76ers.The elder Bryant played from 1984 to 1991 in Italy, giving young Kobe a global worldview as he grew up dreaming of following his dad into the NBA.When his father retired as a player, the family moved back to the Philadelphia area and Kobe began his star turn at Lower Merion High School, where his jersey number 33 was retired.He decided at age 17 to jump directly from the prep ranks to the NBA, only the sixth player and first guard to make such a leap.Bryant was selected 13th overall by the Charlotte Hornets in the 1996 NBA Draft but they were picking for the Lakers in a deal made before the draft.At 18, Bryant became, at the time, the youngest player or starter in an NBA game and the youngest winner of the NBA Slam Dunk Contest.In 1998, he became the youngest NBA All-Star starter. In a 1999 campaign shortened by a labor dispute, Bryant started every game for the Lakers and signed a six-year deal worth $70 million.As the Michael Jordan era ended in Chicago, Bulls coach Phil Jackson wound up joining the Lakers and with sharpshooter Bryant joining dominating inside force Shaquille O’Neal, the Lakers captured three NBA crowns in a row from 2000-2002, returning the team to glory days unseen since 1988.He remained with the franchise for the remainder of his career, successfully branching out into the entertainment industry following his retirement.In 2018, he won an Oscar for his animated short film “Dear Basketball”, a love letter to the sport which brought him fame and fortune.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 5x NBA Champion2x Finals MVP1x NBA Most Valuable Player 18x NBA All-Star4x NBA All-Star Game MVP11x All-NBA First Team2x All-NBA Second Team2x All-NBA Third Team9x NBA All-Defensive First Team2x NBA Scoring Champion2x Olympic Gold MedalistLos Angeles, United States | AFP |  NBA legend Kobe Bryant died Sunday when a helicopter crashed and burst into flames in foggy conditions in suburban Los Angeles, leaving five people dead, US media reported on Sunday.Los Angeles County Sheriff’s officials said there were no survivors from the morning crash on a rugged hillside in Calabasas, west of Los Angeles.The helicopter was described as a Sikorsky S-76, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said.TMZ was the first US outlet to report that Bryant was among the fatalities. The NBA icon’s death was later confirmed by ESPN, CNN and the Los Angeles Times citing unidentified sources.TMZ reported that Bryant’s wife, Vanessa was not among those on board the helicopter.Early reports of Bryant’s death sent shockwaves throughout the world, with fellow stars and celebrities expressing disbelief at the news.“I’m stunned,” wrote Hall-of-Fame NBA star Scottie Pippen. “Words can’t even come close to describing it. Just an incredibly sad and tragic day.”“This can’t be true,” Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic wrote on Twitter. “No please.”Tennis great Martina Navratilova added: “Gone much too soon, how devastating to hear of his passing, he gave joy to so many for so long – deep condolences to his family, his friends, his Laker family. RIP Kobe.”At the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, dozens of shocked fans gathered to pay tribute to the star.The crash came only hours after the 41-year-old former Los Angeles Lakers icon was passed by current Lakers star LeBron James for third on the all-time NBA scoring list in a Saturday game at Philadelphia.Bryant’s final post on social media had been a tweet congratulating James on surpassing him.“Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames,” Bryant wrote. “Much respect my brother #33644”.– Five-time champion –last_img read more

Ramos works with the group and will be ready for Valladolid

first_imgSergio Ramos is ready to play again on Real Madrid’s visit to Valladolid this Sunday (9:00 pm). The captain of the white team had a sprained right ankle during the final of the Spanish Super Cup against Atletico de Madrid that was played in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), which made him miss two games so far: the victory over Sevilla at the Bernabéu and the visit to Unionists last Wednesday. The central pressed and in fact tried to play the first of the two crashes, but from the medical services of Real Madrid they stopped him and made him see that the risk did not compensate. Finally, he rested in the League and also in the Cup, but this Friday Ramos completed the session with the group without problems and everything indicates that, if he repeats tomorrow in the last training before the day, he can start in the visit to Valladolid.The one who won’t be in that game will be Gareth Bale, that left injured in the first minutes of the second part of the Unionistas-Madrid, also with a sprained ankle. The Welshman worked inside the Valdebebas facilities and his return is expected for next week, probably for Atlético’s visit to the Bernabéu.Asensio and Hazard continue to recover from their injuries and both returned to work with the ball. The Belgian is about to reappear, it is expected that next week he can already do at least part of the sessions with the group.last_img read more

Setién: “Like the players do not interpret some things well”

first_imgThere are some things that do not interpret well. Or maybe we don’t explain them well. What we have seen We have given passes without depth and we do not work for that. There are things to try to correct. The best thing was that we had gone to rest 0-0. In the second we have been better but that is not enough. But Valencia is also a great team, which has left us well from the pressure and hurt us. It is something that we work, that we talk about, and that we have to improve.Can you go Vidal?I already said about the market that I was not going to talk. There is nothing to say now that I have not said before.Is the team worse than I expected?The only thing we are valuing is the position of the players and the understanding we have to have of what we want. One thing is that they understand the board and another thing they develop. We haven’t found the right place in the first part. We have corrected some things so that they understood them better and that has been noticed and has helped us a lot because we have gained space.What happened to Carles Pérez?From conversations with players you will understand that he does not speak. They are private things.Do you understand that a team asks for the transfer of Rodrigo?The only thing I have said about Rodrigo is that he is a great footballer, and that he preferred that he was not in the field. Above all else, someone always has a brown to hide. I have nothing to say.Why do you think De Jong’s level has dropped so much?That is your opinion. It is true that not only he, but the rest of the team, sometimes lacks understanding. Frenkie has played in a concrete way in recent months and now we are asking for others. – Too much punishment 2-0?-The first part we have been frankly bad. We have not placed ourselves well. We have not had that pause and that precision. We have provided four or five cons. There are many things that we have to value from the first part. There are things we have not understood. We may not have explained ourselves well, or you have to understand things in a better way. In the second part we have been able to make more progress. There have been very clear occasions. But unfortunately we have not made the goal and we have made the second. We must bear in mind that, being fair, in the first part Valencia deserved some more. We have not been well at all. There are many things to improve. Things to talk about I think that of Ansu or the ones that Leo has had, the rival was very involved in his house and had tied, we would have balanced it a lot. But in the end, a painful defeat that we will try to digest as soon as possible.Quique then went to the press room:What worries you most about this defeat, fails what you ask the players? Quique Setién spoke on the microphones of Barça TV before going through the press room.last_img read more

first_imgAre you called Duffy, O’Neill, O’Reilly or O’Donnell? If you are, you may be an heir to a fortune!Hundreds of Irish names are on the British Treasury’s list of unclaimed estates.Millions of pounds could therefore be lying in wait for the heirs of Irish people who died intestate in Britain. One of the largest cases was that of an Irish woman who left an estate in Belgravia, London, valued at over £1.5 million.Estates of those who die with no obvious next-of-kin automatically default to the British Government.Each year, approximately 2,000 cases are referred to the Treasury Solicitor’s Department.Last year the British Government collected £33 million in unclaimed estates. Fraser & Fraser, a London firm specialising in probate research, has handled over £100 million of inheritance in the past 10 years.They estimate that Irish cases account for about 10 per cent of their caseload.One case was the story of Michael Moran, who died in London aged 84 with an estate of £300,000. Born in Westport, Co. Mayo in 1922, Mr Moran died intestate in 2007 in Windsor.Using parish records, Mr Moran’s heirs were found and his estate was distributed.Another of Fraser & Fraser’s three teams repatriated some £4 million to beneficiaries in Ireland in a single 18-month period up to 2011. At present Fraser & Fraser, who have featured on the BBC TV series Heir Hunters, have details of an unclaimed case valued at £45,000 under the name Michael Delaney, a 70-year-old bachelor who died in Luton, Bedfordshire in 2000.The Bona Vacantia list, within the Treasury Solicitor’s Department, holds more than 10,500 unclaimed estates.Among them are hundreds of Irish-born men and women who died intestate between 1997 and 2012.Many Irish surnames such as Brennan, Connolly, Fitzgerald, Murphy, Kelly, O’Brien, O’Neill and O’Connor feature on the Treasury’s lists of unclaimed estates from across Britain, including London, West Yorkshire, Kent, Sussex, Essex and Staffordshire. The list is updated weekly — however no values are included to avoid fraudulent claims.The Treasury only deals with solvent estates of £500 or more.Many of these estates are worth little but others include bank savings, life insurance policies and real estate valued at tens of thousands of pounds.Bona Vacantia make enquiries for entitled kin on their website as well as in national and local press advertisements.Respondents are required to provide evidence of their blood relationship in the form of birth, marriage and death certificates, along with evidence of their identity.Two thirds of people in Britain have no will and every year over 12,000 people die without leaving any entitled kin next-of-kin.The most recent Bona Vacantia list shows details of 16 deceased persons all listed with birthplaces in Ireland. These include:■ John Watson, a bachelor, aged 82 years, who died in Plaistow, London, in October 2012■ Eugene Fitzpatrick, a widower, aged 88 years, who died in Brighouse, West Yorkshire, in February 2007■ James Emmett O’Reilly, whose marital status is unknown, aged 58 years, who died in Harrow, Middlesex in April 1989■ Anthony McDonagh, a widower, aged 89 years, who died in Halifax, West Yorkshire in February 2008■ Michael O’Donnell, aged 45 years, who died in Gillingham, Kent, in June 2003ARE YOU A SECRET MILLIONAIRE?

Method actor Anthony Franciosa

first_imgAnthony Franciosa, whose strong portrayals of moody, troubled characters made him a Hollywood star in the 1950s and ’60s but whose combative behavior on movie sets hampered his career, has died, his publicist said Friday. He was 77. Franciosa died Thursday at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles after suffering a massive stroke, publicist Dick Guttman said. The actor’s wife, Rita, and children were present. The Rev. Jesse Jackson, a longtime friend, visited the family later, Guttman said. Franciosa was part of a new wave in the mid-20th century who revolutionized film acting with their introspective, intensely realistic approach to their roles. Most of them were schooled in the method acting of New York’s Actors Studio. They included Marlon Brando, James Dean, Rod Steiger, Shelley Winters and Paul Newman. Franciosa was once married to Winters, who died last weekend. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card From his first important film role as the brother of a drug addict in “A Hatful of Rain,” Franciosa became known for his portrayals of complicated young men. He received a 1956 Tony nomination for his performance in the role he created on Broadway, then an Oscar nod. In 1957, the actor appeared in three other films, “This Could Be the Night,” “A Face in the Crowd” and “Wild Is the Wind.” Franciosa’s career continued in high gear with such films as “The Long Hot Summer,” “The Naked Maja” (as Goya), “The Story on Page One,” “Period of Adjustment,” “Rio Conchos” and “The Pleasure Seekers.” The actor’s behavior on movie productions became the subject of Hollywood gossip. The stories alleged fiery disputes with directors, sulking in his dressing room and outbursts with other actors. “I went out to Hollywood in the mid-1950s,” he remarked in a 1996 interview, “and I would say I went there a little too early. It was an incredible amount of attention, and I wasn’t quite mature enough psychologically and emotionally for it.” Besides Winters, Franciosa was married to writer Beatrice Bakalyar and real estate agent Judy Kanter, with whom he had a daughter, Nina. His last marriage was to Rita Thiel, a German fashion model. They were parents of sons Christopher and Marco., 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgWestend League Cup Results courtesy of inishowenfl.ieCarn F.C. 4 Carrowmena F.C. 1Carndonagh started brightly and were ahead inside the first 5 minutes when Daniel Mc Laughlin picked up the ball about 25 yards out, advanced past three defenders and found the net from close in. The score was doubled midway through the half after Mc Grenra accepted a pass from Ronan Doherty and finished from 12 yards. The home side continued to have the upper hand and added a third on 35 minutes when Eanna Newton’s powerful run carried him into the penalty area and he scored from 10 yards. The visitors tried to get back into the game after the break and pulled a goal back close to the hour mark when slackness in the home defence allowed Pearse Parkinson to head home. However, Carn restored their three goal advantage in the closing stages following good work by Declan Mc Gonagle Doherty turned and fired home from 8 yards to complete the scoring.   Gleneely Colts 0 Killea F.C.5   The visitors were in the ascendancy throughout and ran out deserved winners as they recorded their first victory on their return to Inishowen football. And it was a personal triumph for Gary Crossan who notched up a hat trick. However, he had to wait until the half hour mark for his opener when he latched onto a ball from the right, rounded a home defender and drove the ball home from the edge to the area. There were no other chances of note in the half. Gleneely started brightly after the interval with Cory O’ Brien having the ball in the net but the score did not stand due to a handball infringement in the buildup. Crossan grabbed his second on 56 minutes when he headed home from 8 yards when he got on the end of a delivery from the left. On 63 minutes John Logue cut in from the left wing, advanced through the home rearguard and fired the ball to the net past Mooney for Killea’s third goal. With 20 minutes remaining Gleneely almost pulled a goal back but Cathal Diver’s header from an John Doherty cross shaved the post. The visitors completed the scoring with two goals in the final five minutes. First Frankie Mc Brearty turned the ball home from 6 yards following a goalmouth scramble and with a minute to go Crossan completed his hat trick from the spot after a handball offence.  Rasheney F.C. 0 Buncrana Hearts 6  Buncrana dominated throughout, were 2 – 0 ahead at half time and ran out deserving winners. The home team created a few openings early on. John Mc Laughlin delivered through the centre to the inrushing Hegarty but goalkeeper Rory Kelly was alert and made a claim. Then the same player hooked high and wide when well placed after getting on the end of a deep cross from Mc Gilloway. But most of the play was in the direction of the home goal with the visitors holding the upper hand for rest of the half. They came close to scoring when Declan Fullerton set up O’Donnell but the latter’s ground shot beat keeper Noone but the ball went agonisingly wide of the left hand post. Then Noone reacted well to palm away a header from Robbie Fullerton and immediately afterwards Kieran Mc Daid was out of luck twice in quick succession after good work from Foreshaw and Mc Carron. Mid way through the half Foreshaw was denied by the legs of the advancing Noone. On 33 minutes Buncrana moved into the lead. Mc Daid was released along the left wing. He got close to the byeline and his low cross found Declan Fullerton who drove to the net from 12 yards for the opener. Within two minutes the lead was doubled when Liam Mc Carron’s excellent 30 yard attempt smacked back of the crossbar only for Mc Daid to hook home. There were further letoffs for the home goal before half time with both Fullerton and Mc Donnell not being able capitalise when excellent chances were created in front of goal. Rasheney got a sight of Kelly’s nets just after the restart but the keeper denied sub Charlie Doherty who shot strongly after latching on to a John Mc Laughlin cross field ball. But Buncrana continued to carve out openings and after Foreshaw and Fullerton came close, the visitors were awarded a penalty after Noone was adjudged to have fouled Fullerton right on the byeline. However, the keeper redeemed himself and made a superb save and then watched as the rebound being driven wide. Mid way through the second half Buncrana made it 3 – 0 when Fullerton set up sub Stephen Mc Hugh to score from close in. On 70 mins the home defence, already under severe pressure, had further pressure heaped on it when a defender was shown a second yellow card. The visitors went on to score three more goals. Mc Hugh fired home after getting onto Diarmuid Fullerton/s left wing cross, Mc Daid dribbled into the area and managed to evade several defenders before scoring and Mc Hugh completed his hat trick right at the death.    Greencastle 0-8 Illies After 2 mins: Greencastles Rory Laffertys inswinging corner was gathered by illies keeper Grahame Doherty then on 5 mins a high ball into Greencastle box caused confusion and Paddy Doherty for illies gained possession and hit a low shot to bottom corner to give illies a 1 0 lead. after10 mins: Jack Keys for greencastle had a 12 yard shot blocked after good build up play from Andrew Mc Laughlin on 25 mins: Paddy Doherty for illies broke on the right hand side and crossed for Gerard Mc Daid who beat the offside trap and gave home keeper Mc Geoghan no chance to make it 2 0 in the 30th min, Illies increased their lead 5 mins later when Shane Devlin broke on his own from midfield, beat off a defender and rounded the keeper to roll the ball into an empty net to make it 3 0 after 35 mins: Greencastle had a chance when Christy Craig raced clear of the Illies defence but illies keeper cleared the danger in the 40th min Illies went 4 up when Liam Doherty squared from the left for Liam O’Connor to score from the edge of the box, on the stroke of half time illies went 5 0 up whe Liam Doherty played in Paul Doherty jnr who calmly converted to bottom corner 5 min into second half Greencastle had the first chance of the half when Michael Barr broke into the box and layed it off to rory lafferty who shot just wide, Jack Keys then played in christy craig whose shot was well saved,13 mins: Liam O’Connor raced clear of the home defence and blasted home to put illies 6 0 up, in 73 mins: Jack Keys shot grazed illies bar after good build up Illies keeper Graeme Doherty had a low save from a Cathal Kelly free lick, then Paddy Doherty for Illies lobbed home keeper after good through ball and then Gavin Doherty for illies volleyed home after cross from right hand side Moville Celtic 2 0 QPS This match was dominated by well marshalled defences with both sides limited to few chances. QPS were first to show when in the 9th minute Buchanan received the ball from a throw in on the right, cut inside, but his shot was weak and did little to trouble Moville keeper McLaughlin. Moville then produced some neat interplay which resulted in Sean Doherty attempting a long range effort which just missed the visitors far post. On the half hour Moville went a goal up. Moville captain Canning won the ball in midfield and chipped over the QPS backline to Boyce whose shot ricocheted nicely off the outrushing keeper McColgan for him to gather and stroke home into an empty net. QPS replied in the 34th minute with Buchanan’s well driven 25 yard free kick tipped over the bar by McLaughlin for a corner.Early in the second half, the ever dangerous Buchanan evaded a host of Moville tackles on the left enabling him to get a shot away with his right foot but lacked accuracy and struck the Moville side netting. QPS had all the concerted pressure at this point and moments later McColgan harried a Moville defender enough to win the ball at the touchline and produce a fine cutback across the Moville goal which was just missed by two inrushing Swifts attackers. Moville attacked with an over the top ball which the visiting defenders missed allowing McMonagle through on goal but his shot was wide of the target when well placed. The game was halted for a lengthy period following an injury to Buchanan and on the restart Swifts sub Johnston had a close effort from the left wing but failed to find the target. On the 80th minute Lafferty for Moville chipped a lovely ball to McElhinney past the QPS defence but his lob over McColgan hit the far post and was hacked to safety. A minute later Moville secured the victory after Doherty reacted well to a kick out from McLaughlin which the QPS defenders failed to cut out and gathered the ball, rounding the keeper and two defenders to cooly sidefoot home from 15 yards to make the final score 2 nil to the home side.

Shock as parish clean-up reveals nine dead animals

first_imgMembers of the community involved in the Fanad Clean Up Day have expressed their horror and disgust at finding a number of dead animals along a number of roads.In all nine animals were discovered including five calves, three ewes and a dog.Adding to the shock was that a number of children were involved at a particularly obnoxious site where recently dumped sheep carcasses and some of the rotting calves were discovered. On Tuesday the Council veterinary and road services along with an independent operator removed three sheep and two calves from very difficult terrain close to Mulroy Bay at Tullynadall.Martin Roarty, the Letterkenny area Litter Warden who supervised the operation said it was the most sickening experience of his time as a litter warden. He also confirmed that two mature calves had mysteriously disappeared from the site over the weekend.Mr. Roarty told the Tirconail Tribune that the dead calves had been dumped 25 feet off the roadside on steep and treacherous incline.However the undergrowth and trees could not conceal the stench coming from the location. It is located on a stretch of road with no occupied houses between Kindrum crossroads and the townland of Tullynadall, a distance of around one mile. A dead dog wrapped in polythene was discovered near Rossnakill on the road to Aughadreena while on the road between Massmount and Kindrum another dead calf was discovered.The Council’s litter services were not involved in disposing of these carcasses.There are unconfirmed reports of livestock losses across parts of Donegal with dumping of dead animals reported being seen along the cliff faces on the Knockalla Road and on the sea coast.A number of Fanad’s roads are not included in the clean-up day on the basis of safety: fast moving traffic and too many dangerous bends. One lady said she’d looked at some stretches of these routes and was shocked at the level of household dumping.There were eighty volunteers engaged in the Clean Up Day in Fanad with a number of schools also participating. Close to three tonnes of refuse was collected. However, there is much more evidence in locations that are too difficult to access. The extent of the refuse dumping is reflected on a half a kilometre of road outside Tamney where one family group collected seven large sacks of refuse including cans half filled with paint, a vast array of wine bottles, coffee cups and the debris from takeaway meals.On a quiet road near Aughadreena volunteers were shocked with the number of Tennent’s lager cans in one location…over a hundred in all on top of a huge volume of black refuse sacks bursting at the seams with waste materials.A spokeswoman for the Clean Up Campaign has spoken of their horror and revulsion of finding decaying calves and the dreadful smells. She said it was a traumatic day but nevertheless the community is committed to ensuring that the huge litter problem in the peninsula is cleared annually.The group has spoken of their horror at finding dead and decaying livestock and have appealed to those responsible to have more respect for the environment and their animals and to use the authorised services available. The remains of a dead calf which was also found.Litter Warden, Martin Roarty who had the task of climbing down the dangerous slope at Tullynadall to inspect the number of dead calves said he was horrified at what he saw and heard from the volunteers who found the carcasses in Fanad.“What was most worrying,” said Mr.Roarty is that there is ample evidence of bits of skeletons and bones to suggest that this has been a site for dead animals being disposed for a number of years. He said that the problem of litter remains a major one for everyone and detection on country roads where there are many unoccupied houses is causing a huge problem for the litter services.”An appeal has now gone out from the volunteers engaged in the clean-up for anyone with knowledge of ownership of the dead animals to contact the Gardai urgently.Martin Roarty says that these problems must be tackled and in most instances there is local knowledge and those dumping cattle are well acquainted with the localities involved.He said: “Like so many other community volunteers, the Fanad group does massive work in the clean-up of the parish and they had almost 80 people involved. They filled four massive skips and there are remote byroads that are not done because of the time factor involved. Certain people are using quiet back roads to dispose of household rubbish.Shock as parish clean-up reveals nine dead animals was last modified: April 29th, 2018 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:animalscalvesdeaddonegalFanadhorsesvetlast_img read more

Budget 2014: Increases in old age, child support grants

first_imgSouth Africa’s monthly old age and disability grants will increase from R1 270 to R1 350 from April, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan told Parliament on Wednesday.(Image: South Africa Social Security Agency)Child support grants will increase from R300 to R310 a month from April and to R320 a month from October, while foster care grants will increase to R830 a month. The increases are in line with inflation forecasts of 6.2% for the 2014/15 financial year.Delivering his Budget speech in Cape Town, Gordhan said the number of South Africans who were eligible for grants would increase to 16.5-million over the next three years.The good news for the fiscus is that the recent re-registration of grant recipients, along with the introduction of a modernised payment system has lowered the cost of administering the system, while removing hundreds of thousands of invalid beneficiaries from the database.South Africa’s social assistance system, one of the largest in Africa, is the government’s most direct means of combating poverty. Spending on social grants accounts for 3% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) and is projected to rise from R118-billion in 2013/14 to R145-billion by 2016.The child support and old age grants are the two largest grant programmes, constituting about 75% of total grant spending.Over the past decade, the number of social grant beneficiaries has doubled, from 7.9-million in 2003 to 15.8-million this year, largely due to an expansion of the child support grant.Source: you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Building a Predictive Analytics Model From Scratch

first_imgThere’s a lot of talk right now about the potential value AI can bring to businesses, and the logistics business – because of its complexity and how much e-commerce depends on it – is no exception.Imagine your e-commerce business needs to ship an order from San Francisco to Seattle and you’ve promised 2-day delivery. It’s 3:34pm and USPS, UPS, FedEx, and Ontrac all have different cutoff times at their sortation facilities. It’s going to take your warehouse between 15 and 45 minutes to pick and pack the order, and there’s a 62% chance of a thunderstorm over San Francisco tonight. Do you ship it by air (express) or by ground?If you choose to ship it by air you lose all of your profit margin. If you choose ground your margin is great, but it may be late and you risk losing the customer. The only way to make this decision in real-time, thousands of times per day for your growing business is to predict the future. There’s far too many variables and factors for a human to take into account – you need AI. You need a predictive model. And if you don’t have one and your competitors do you will cede ground to them and lose the competitive advantage.Start With the DataThis is the promise of AI and Machine Learning (ML) – collect a mountain of data, feed it into a predictive model, and profit! Unfortunately, it’s not quite that simple. Even the best neural networks have difficulty extracting accurate predictions for very complex real-world questions.In 2016 DeepMind used a self-taught neural network to beat the 18-time world champion Go player – a game arguably more complex than chess. Training a neural network to play games (e.g. Chess or Go) isn’t easy, however it is different from the real-world in that you have perfect, accurate data at all times. You know the positions and possibilities for every piece on the board, and you know instantly when they change. This is rarely the case for difficult business questions that you want answered in order to gain a competitive advantage or reduce costs.Your data is likely coming from multiple sources of varying quality, it’s not guaranteed to be delivered to you in real-time, and there’s far too much of it – more noise than signal. Before you start dumping all of your data into Tensorflow or Google Cloud AutoML Table you need to deeply understand your domain, and hire a data scientist.Statistical processing has been around for decades, and only a trained data scientist is going to be able to work through the petabytes of data you’ve collected and clean it up so that your predictions will be accurate. A lot of the excitement around AI and ML is that we’ll get better models with much less work – no more tedious feature extraction or selecting variables! But that’s just not the case… yet. Almost none of your raw data is going to be optimally suited for a predictive model – it will all need to be massaged into multiple formats for each specific application.It’s common for people new to the field to get excited by how easy modern AI and ML tools are to use, however the devil is in the details. Even the simplest models will give you a prediction, but the accuracy of those predictions will be so bad that you won’t be able to extract business value from them. Unfortunately the difference between a naive model and a sophisticated one developed by a data scientist will be borne out in the accuracy and confidence you have in its predictions.Our ExperienceAt EasyPost we try to predict when shipments will arrive at their destinations, however even with tens of billions of data points about past shipments this is extremely difficult to do. When we began trying to make these predictions with our tracking data alone the results were abysmal. However, when we began pairing data scientists with shipping experts we were able to make huge strides in speed and accuracy.An example of where human intelligence can assist the AI is that our human experts understand the importance of cutoff times at sortation facilities in the logistics industry. By adding data from domain experts – in this case the cutoff times at each facility type in the carrier networks – we were able to vastly improve our results. By adding domain specific, relevant data to our scientists’ toolkit we are able to create a more intelligent model than with AI alone.ConclusionIn our experience a complicated question like the one posed earlier about shipping times contains too many variables for today’s best neural networks to learn and solve on their own. Luckily, they don’t have to, but you’ll need data scientists to work with domain experts in order to properly weight the significance of air humidity levels over the Bay Area!The future for predictive models is bright, however don’t ignore the past! Statistical processing and data science are the key to framing and simplifying complex business questions so that state of the art AI and ML can grapple with them.

Wawrinka ends wretched run with solid start at Queen’s

first_img\R London, Jun 18 (AFP) Stan Wawrinka kicked off his Wimbledon preparations with a 6-2, 6-3 win over British youngster Cameron Norrie in the Queen’s Club first round today. Wawrinka has struggled to return to peak form since suffering a left knee injury last yeat that required two operations and wiped out the second half of the Swiss star’s season. Still hampered by the problem this term, Wawrinka was sidelined again for three months in between a second round exit at the Australian Open and a first round loss in the French Open. The 33-year-old arrived in west London having lost six of his last seven ATP Tour matches and, given grass has never been Wawrinka’s favourite surface, he might have feared more misery at the pre-Wimbledon event. But the three-time Grand Slam champion had an obliging opponent in wild card entry Norrie. Wawrinka hardly had to break sweat to see off Norrie and next faces former Queen’s winner Sam Querrey of the United States, who beat British wild card and ATP Tour debutant Jay Clarke 6-3, 6-3. “Mentally it’s tough when you see how far you are and how long it will take. Still now, it’s not easy,” Wawrinka said of his injury woes. “It takes time to get where you want to be. I need to be really patient with myself, to accept less in a way, because, when you win Grand Slams, I always expect so much from myself.” In other first round action, top seed Marin Cilic made a flying start to his bid for another strong grass-court campaign with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco.advertisement Former US Open champion Cilic is bidding for a second Queen’s title and a fourth appearance in the final after losing last year’s title match against Feliciano Lopez. The world number six, who finished as Australian Open runner-up in January, was back on grass in London for the first time since his tearful injury-plagued Wimbledon final defeat against Roger Federer last year. Cilic made short work of Verdasco and his second round opponent is Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller, who beat rising Canadian star Denis Shapovalov 7-6 (9/7), 7-6 (8/6). Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, the biggest names in the Queen’s draw, are both due in first round action tomorrow. Djokovic plays Australian qualifier John Millman and Murray will make his first appearance for 11 months after finally recovering from a hip injury that needed surgery in January. – ‘Awesome’ Murray – The former world number one faces a tricky opener against talented but temperamental Australian Nick Kyrgios, who pushed Roger Federer to three sets before narrowly losing in the Stuttgart semi-finals at the weekend. Murray, a two-time Wimbledon winner, has admitted he doesn’t have great expectations at the start of his comeback after so long on the sidelines. Finally free of a nagging elbow injury, world number 21 Kyrgios has grander plans — starting with securing his first win over his good friend at the sixth attempt. “I feel good. My elbow is fine and I played three quality matches in Stuttgart. Pretty disappointed I didn’t win against Roger but it was a good match,” Kyrgios said. “I’m feeling confident. I’m excited (to play Murray), obviously one of my better mates on tour. “It’s just good to see him back ultimately. I think it’s been pretty shitty without him. “To see him healthy is the main thing. I think he’s awesome for the sport.” Kyrgios has a well-earned reputation as one of the tour’s more controversial figures after some petulant behaviour in the past. The 23-year-old remains combustible, but for now he insists he’s focused on ruining Murray’s return. “Early in my career probably didn’t play my best against Andy. I wasn’t as confident back then as I am now,” he said. “Hopefully I’ve still got more to show him. Maybe we’ll see tomorrow.” (AFP) AHAHlast_img read more

Virat Kohli won’t score a hundred during Australia tour: Pat Cummins

first_imgVirat Kohli scored his first Test century in 2011 in Australia. During 2014 tour, he amassed four centuries in the Test series Down Under. But Aussie pacer Pat Cummins says the Indian captain will not score a hundred when Indian team plays a four-Test series in Australia later this year.”My brave, bold prediction; I’d say I think Virat Kohli is not going to get a hundred and we’re going to knock them off over here,” Cummins said at a Channel 7 event.Apart from five centuries in Australia, Kohli averages 62 in the eight Tests he has played in the country.In the absence of the suspended Steve Smith and David Warner, India have a good chance of winning their maiden series in Australia.Australian fast bowling great Glenn McGrath was present at the function alongside Cummins. McGrath predicted that Australia would blank India 4-0. He also wants to see the home team target Kohli.”I want to see Australians put pressure on Kohli and just see how he handles it. It’s going to be a good, hard, tough series. Kohli has got a bit of an aggressive attitude, but showed last time he was out here he’s not going to take a backward step,” he said.”The Windies of the late 70s, early 80s were an incredible team and they used to target the captain of the opposition team and get on top of him and have a big impact. I tried to bring that in by targeting players when I played.advertisement”If you get on top of them, the No.1 player and their captain, it makes the job so much easier. If they can get on top of Kohli I think it can have a big effect on the game,” McGrath added.India will be touring Australia for the 12th time this summer. They are yet to win a Test series in 11 attempts, having drawn in 1981, 1985 and 2003. India have won just five out of the 44 Tests.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more

India sleeping giants of women’s cricket, says Australia coach

first_imgIndia are the “sleeping giants” of women’s cricket with the resources they have at their disposal, feels Australia coach Matthew Mott.The interest in women’s cricket in India has been on the rise ever since they finished runners-up in the 2017 World Cup in the United Kingdom.India also entered the semi-finals of last November’s T20 World Cup in the West Indies.”They’re (India) the sleeping giant in women’s cricket. They’ve got a country that’s mad on the game, and in their batting, they’ve already got three or four world-class players,” said Mott.”The depth in their batting is outstanding, their bowling’s got potential as well and their fielding has improved out of sight,” he was quoted as saying by entered two World Cup finals (2005, 2017) but finished on the losing on both occasions.But Mott believes if they continue in the same vein, the future is bright for women’s cricket in India.”They’re going to be a force in world cricket.

US factory orders up 16 per cent best in 7 months

On Thursday, March 3, 2016, the Commerce Department reports on U.S. factory orders for January. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren) US factory orders up 1.6 per cent, best in 7 months WASHINGTON – Orders to U.S. factories increased in January by the most in seven months, while a key category that tracks business investment plans rose by the largest amount in 19 months.Factory orders rose 1.6 per cent in January after two months of declines, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. It was the biggest jump since June, though it was driven by demand in the volatile category of commercial aircraft. At the same time, orders in a core sector that serves as a proxy for business investment rose 3.4 per cent — the sharpest one-month gain since June 2014.U.S. manufacturers’ export sales have been hurt this year by spreading economic weakness overseas and by a strong dollar, which has made their goods less competitive. And a sharp fall in oil prices has hurt investment.Demand for durable goods — items ranging from autos and appliances to airplanes and battleships — increased 4.7 per cent in January, slightly lower than the 4.9 per cent the government had estimated in a preliminary report last week.Orders for nondurable goods, including chemicals, paper and clothing, fell 1.4 per cent in January after a 1.1 per cent drop in December. This category has posted a string of declines in part because of the big drop in energy prices. The data is not adjusted for price changes.Orders for commercial aircraft jumped 54.4 per cent, with smaller gains for military aircraft and autos and auto parts.And orders for machinery increased 4.6 per cent. This category was led by a surge in demand for mining, oil and gas equipment, an area that has been weak because of the cutbacks that energy companies are making in response to falling energy prices.While January posted a strong overall gain, analysts cautioned against reading too much into one month of data. They noted that many major overseas markets are still struggling with weak growth. And the dollar has risen even further in recent months.The Institute for Supply Management said this week that U.S. factory activity remained at a recession level in February for a fifth straight month. While the level of activity was up a bit from January, it stayed below 50, indicating that manufacturing was shrinking. read more

Knights Badgers tip off for United Way

Niagara College President Dan Patterson (left), and Brock President Jack Lightstone are ready for this year’s Peninsula Hoop Classic benefitting United Way, set for Sept. 27. The Niagara College Knights and Brock University Badgers men’s and women’s basketball teams will hit the hardcourt Sept. 27 in support of the United Way.The games are part of the fifth annual Peninsula Hoop Classic, which brings the region’s two post-secondary institutions together to benefit a key community organization.“The Peninsula Hoop Classic is a fantastic way to kick off the post-secondary athletics season as the event showcases the premier basketball talent in the Niagara region” said Matthew Davies, Niagara College’s director of athletics and recreation and the co-chair of the Niagara College United Way campaign. “Niagara College has set the goal of raising $40,000 for the United Way, and the Hoop Classic will serve as the tip-off event for our 2014 fundraising events.”“Niagara College and Brock University have worked together over the past five years not only to continue to build on the great relationship we already have, but to continue to help out with the United Way campaign,” said Brock University interim director of athletics Chris Critelli. “The Peninsula Hoop Classic provides a great opportunity through sport, to raise awareness and funds for the Niagara region.”This year’s event will see more than bragging rights amongst the players on the line as Niagara College’s president Dan Patterson and Brock University president Jack Lightstone have entered into a friendly wager on the outcome. The bet will see the president of the losing school wear the jersey of the winning team to a board meeting.“I think friendly rivalries always celebrate the relationship between two institutions,” Lightstone said. “In this case, it’s for a very good cause and also to have some fun along the way.”Patterson called the event a “worthy cause” that brings together Niagara’s post-secondary schools.“The idea that post-secondary education supports United Way in a big way is so important to us,” Patterson said. “To have both institutions get together in a fun-like, sports-like event brings a lot of attention to the importance of Unites Way, and that’s really good.”The Peninsula Hoop Classic alternates between venues, and will be held this year at Niagara College’s Welland Campus Athletic Centre. The women’s teams will tip off at 6 p.m., with the men’s game scheduled for an 8 p.m. start. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $5. All current NC and Brock students and those under the age of 17 will be admitted for free. Throughout the evening donations will be accepted in support of the United Way. Parking is free for this event.As host of this year’s game, Niagara College invites the community to enjoy complimentary refreshments, and meet students and staff prior to tip off. Doors will open at 5 p.m.The Peninsula Hoop Classic originated in 2010, and was the first game played in Niagara College’s Welland Campus Athletic Centre. While the United Way has been the biggest winner in the five-year history of the Hoop Classic, Brock has so far held the edge on the scoreboard sporting an overall record of 7-1. In 2012, the last time Niagara College hosted the event, the Knights men’s basketball program captured a 78-71 victory over the Badgers. read more

(Photo: AFP)Rebeca has been doing it for six months as inflation and shortages have worsened. When the school day finishes, she heads to Caracas’s posher districts to pick up what richer citizens have thrown away.“My mother did not want to accept it,” she says. “But what else can I do with the way the country is?”– Losing weight –Some 9.6 million Venezuelans are living on two or fewer meals a day, according to the Living Conditions Survey.And 1.5 million are living on food given to them or found in bins, says one of the report’s authors, nutritionist Maritza Landaeta.Nearly 52 per cent of the population lives in extreme poverty, says the study by a group of universities.Seven out of 10 people in the country have lost weight — 8.7 kilograms (17 pounds) on average.Rebeca says her mother “had got to the point where her bones were showing through. My son was becoming undernourished so at last I said, I have to go and look for food in the street.”– Humiliation –Rebeca waits in a small crowd of 70 people, including several children, for the rubbish trucks to come.The group shares out the food from those and from the bins in the restaurants.“I used to cry because I felt humiliated. But I don’t care about that anymore,” she says.“If you don’t have a job, and you don’t look in the bins, then you don’t eat.”Outside one restaurant, unemployed builder Jose Godoy, 53, anxiously licks a disposable plate he has found.His daughters of seven and nine drink juice found in a can.They are suffering from anaemia. They are used to eating just banana or yucca once a day.“One night, we had to go to bed without eating. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. The children were crying: ‘I’m hungry,” he says.“I sold my tools and everything, and in the end I came out searching in the streets. There are thousands of us living off garbage.”– Bags of food –The crisis caused by falling oil prices has raised pressure on Socialist President Nicolas Maduro.Opponents blame corruption and his economic management for the crisis.Supermarkets sell rations of food and household supplies. But even at state-subsidized prices they are unaffordable for many.The International Monetary Fund estimates that inflation will reach 1,660 per cent this year.Maduro says poverty actually lessened last year. The United Nations acknowledged his efforts to fight hunger in 2015.His government has been targeting bags of subsidised goods at poor areas. He says that will help millions of households this year.But Rebeca and her family have only received those bags twice.– Faint with hunger –Tired and haggard, Rebeca returns home having found virtually nothing.“Sometimes you do, and sometimes you don’t — at least not today. Today it went badly,” she says.Next she must walk for an hour to get to school as her hungry daily grind begins again.There she will study alongside schoolmates who sometimes “faint from hunger,” she says.“I don’t want to carry on like this.” read more

Homes within 50m of Eirgrid pylons will be considered for compensation

first_imgIF EIRGRID ARE unable to route the pylons more than 50 metres away from homes, they will engage with residents about compensation, said the Chief Executive of Eirgrid Fintan Slye.Speaking on RTE’s Morning Ireland today about the new independent commission that will examine the possibility of putting high-voltage power lines underground instead of on large pylons, Slyle said “where, despite our best efforts we are unable to route the line more than 50 metre away we will engage” but he added that these would be “exceptional cases”.Compensation When asked if people would be given compensation up to the value of their homes, Slye said: “It is certainly something we will consider.” He added, however, that some people may not want to move in any event.In early January, Rabbitte also said that just like people who have roads build through their lands are compensated, it was something that Eirgrid would be assessing, but indicated that it was very much a possibility they would be.Yesterday it was announced by Minister Pat Rabbitte that an independent commission, chaired by former Supreme Court judge Catherine McGuinness, will investigate the possibility of placing electricity power lines underground as opposed to on large pylons across parts of the countryside in the west, south and east of the country.However, there was speculation that the North South Interconnector project would not be included in the review. This is one of the older Eirgrid plans and is set to deliver a new high capacity electricity interconnector between the electricity networks of Ireland and Northern Ireland.Meeting Fine Gael TD Sean Conlon said he had met with the Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister Pat Rabbitte last night about the North South Interconnector project being included in the review and said he had come away from the meeting “happy” adding that he was confident that in the next 48 hours it would be announced that the reports, that have already been commissioned and carried out on the project, will be reviewed by the panel.However, when asked about this Slye said he was not aware of the conversation between the Taoiseach and Conlon on the issue, stating that work on that project was already underway and planning permission would be applied for in the coming weeks.When asked how long the review will take in terms of delaying Eirgrid’s plans, he denied that it would be up to a year, stating “I don’t think so.”He said Eirgrid they were in “listening mode” and had received a huge number of submissions from around the country in relation to their projects.EngageThe Chief Executive said they will engage with the expert panel, and look at the possibility of underground cables, but said reports had been commissioned to show that this could mean “very significant additional costs”.Minister Rabbitte previously said that if underground cables are installed rather than overhead pylons then “electricity consumers must be prepared to take the hit on their bills over the next 50 years”.He said that that while underground cables are “feasible” the extra cost will go “onto the bills of you and I and every other domestic customer”.Explainer: What’s happening with electricity pylons and why is it such a big issue?>Read: Could controversial power lines go underground?

Crafty Chinese stores selling 128MB flash drives as 500GB HDD

first_imgThe price of storage seems to come down every year with manufacturers maintaining their profit margins by just offering more of it at the same price point. But that’s not enough for some salesman who want significantly more than the drives they are selling are worth.In China, some crafty salesman have figured out how to create what some would class as a magical hard drive. From the outside it looks like an official Samsung portable drive with all the right labels. The salesman will even show you the storage capacity of 500GB and copy a large file to it. What more convincing do you need before a sale at an unbelievably low price?AdChoices广告But then you hand over your money to the smiling assistant and take the drive home. It seems to accept all your file copies without issue, but when you come to access them something is amiss. That HD movie you put on there only plays for 5 minutes before looping back to the start. Is it a faulty drive?Apparently this scenario is becoming quite common with portable drives bought in a certain area of China near the border with Russia. A Russian repair shop captured the two images you see here to show us how these magical hard drives are being created.What these Chinese stores are doing is taking a typical portable hard drive case and gluing a 128MB flash drive inside along with some heavy metal objects to make the weight feel right in the hand. The clever bit is tricking any computer it connects to over USB into thinking the drive is much larger than it is, and also how it never runs out of space, rather just looping and copying over what is already on the tiny drive. This is most likely done with some modification performed to the controller in the drive.I suspect the stores doing this somehow ended up with a shipment of portable hard drive cases and decided to make some money with them. The very low price they sell for still turns a big profit for the seller, and the customer won’t realize for a few hours or days at least that he has been conned.via Jitbit Softwarelast_img read more

Is the situation really as simple as cash for passports here in

first_img Monday 27 Mar 2017, 6:30 AM Share520 Tweet Email11 By Éilis Ryan Dublin city councillor, Workers’ Party Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 63 Comments Éilis Ryan HOW MUCH WOULD you guess is the cost of buying Irish citizenship? Your first reaction might actually be that surely you can’t simply buy your way to such a thing. Mine certainly was.But what if you heard it is possible to buy citizenship for the low low cost of a couple of million Euro? Not exactly equal opportunities access to Irish passports.Last week, it was reported that the Forbes billionaire list included eight Irish billionaires.But on closer examination, it turns out that two of these are former American citizens, who Forbes indicates renounced US citizenship and took up Irish citizenship primarily to reduce their billionaire’s tax bill: John Dorrance, heir to the Campbell’s soup-empire, and John Grayken, founder of Lone Star private equity fund.Ireland doesn’t tax wealth properlyThe amount of wealth accumulated by these super-wealthy is unjustifiable in itself but in Ireland we do not even tax this wealth properly.A republic has no business luring the super-wealthy by telling them they can pay less tax here.The fact that two of the eight people listed as “Irish” billionaires have effectively only taken up Irish citizenship to avoid paying taxes on their wealth is in itself an indictment on Ireland’s tax system.Is it really as simple as “cash for passports”?Twice in the last number of decades, the Irish government has instigated schemes that effectively allow the super-wealthy to simply buy an Irish passport. Their ostensible justification is as a means of encouraging investment in jobs in the country.For a decade until the mid-1990s, an “economic citizenship” scheme operated by the Irish government allowed anybody to make a one-off investment of $1.7 million in return for instant citizenship within 90 days.Beneficiaries had to buy a home in Ireland and reside there for at least 60 days during their first two years of citizenship, but that was it.In 2012, the Labour/ Fine Gael coalition re-introduced the scheme, and in 2013, to encourage higher uptake, the cost of the cheapest “investment” scheme available to obtain residency and then citizenship was halved to €500,000. Part of this sum can include payment of third-level fees if the children of the “investor” attend university in Ireland.The European border crack-down Such “cash for passports” programmes stand in stark contrast to the situation of the over 4,000 people currently residing in Ireland’s many direct provision centres, awaiting decisions on their applications for asylum to live indefinitely in Ireland.And this is without even considering the thousands of migrants who have died in the waters surrounding Europe who wish to take up residency here.The migrant death toll, and the brutal system that is direct provision, are justified by our government on the grounds that we need a fair, transparent way of assessing who is and is not “entitled” to reside in Ireland.Ireland’s record on granting asylum to those who seek refugee status is exceptionally low. Between 2012 and 2014, the United Nations High Commisioner on Refugees estimated that Ireland accepted around 3% of applications for asylum received – placing us 21st out of 30 European countries.Many of those who are refused asylum are told that, even though they come from poor, war torn environments, they do not meet exceptionally strict criteria proving they will be in danger if they return to their home country.It’s a far cry from simply buying your way into the country.Irish citizenship – why bother? So why does Irish citizenship attract interest from the super wealthy?The main advantage you’ll often hear about Irish citizenship is that allows access to the entire EU and that, globally, it is uniquely hassle-free to travel on an Irish passport. But, more likely of interest to our super-wealthy “investors”, there are also clear tax benefits for those super-wealthy who swap their US passports for Irish citizenship.When John Dorrance, who inherited Campbell’s soup, sold his stake in the empire, he emigrated to Ireland, according to Forbes, in order to avoid capital gains tax.The Philadelphia Inquirer at the time reported:In Ireland, he can pay half the 30 percent US tax rate on dividends, and when he dies, his estate will be taxed at 2 percent, rather than 55 percent in the United States.Dorrance was reportedly granted citizenship in exchange for planting €1.5million worth of trees in Ireland. There are also question marks over whether the billionaires brought in through the Irish government’s cash-for-passports scheme act in the public interest.John Grayken, meanwhile, is CEO and founder of Lone Star private equity firm. Lone Star, owned by now-Irish billionaire John Grayken, is one of the major vulture funds buying and selling distressed Irish mortgages and debt. Companies like Lone Star have been instrumental to worsening the debt and evictions crisis in Ireland.That we reward the founders of such company with citizenship – and the tax breaks that come with that in Ireland – speaks volumes to our state’s attitude to who deserves what in Ireland.A republic of equals? The notion that thousands of applicants for Irish residency, many fleeing war, poverty and persecution, are kept in prison conditions in direct provision centres, while the super-rich can simply throw us a few million, and be rewarded with Irish citizenship and a dramatically reduced tax bill, goes against the founding principles of our republic.As US warplanes continue to travel through Shannon airport, and our government continues to strengthen its links to NATO’s war machine, we should not forget the role we have played in creating the flow of migrants into Europe.A republic of equals must start with how we treat the most marginalised, not with favours for billionaires.Éilis Ryan is a councillor for the Workers’ Party in north inner city Dublin.án Ó Ríordáin: ‘It’s time Irish people stood up against racism. We were the terrorists at one time’>‘Syrians are increasingly likely to opt for a strongman like Assad, capable of bringing stability’> 6,393 Views Mar 27th 2017, 6:30 AM Short URL ‘Is the situation really as simple as “cash for passports” here in Ireland?

Le massacre des éléphants du Liberia

first_imgLe massacre des éléphants du LiberiaDans les années 1980, 20.000 éléphants peuplaient le Liberia. Trente ans plus tard, 19.000 d’entre eux ont été tués par des braconniers. Un véritable massacre dénoncé par Patrick Omondi, directeur du Kenya Wildlife Service, lors d’une Conférence organisé à Monrovia, la capitale du pays.”Malgré la lutte du Liberia contre le commerce de l’ivoire, il est encore pratiqué illégalement dans le pays. Ce commerce a un impact négatif sur les ressources du pays, et c’est pourquoi nous devons tous allier nos efforts afin de protéger la richesse de la faune sauvage”, a insisté Patrick Omondi lors d’une conférence rapportée par le Liberian Daily Observer.En l’espace de trente ans, 95% de la population d’éléphants du Liberia aurait été tués par des braconniers. 20.000 dans les années 1980, ils ne seraient aujourd’hui plus qu’un millier. La conférence de Monrovia avait pour visée de renforcer le rôle de la communauté scientifique libérienne au sein de la Convention sur le commerce international des espèces de faune et de flore sauvages menacées d’extinction (Cites). Rétablir l’autorité de cette communauté est primordial pour organiser une lutte efficace contre le massacre des éléphants, et plus globalement pour faire face au défi que représente la préservation de la faune et la flore du Liberia, estime Patrick Orandi. Et d’évoquer la menace du réchauffement climatique, l’augmentation de la population qui empiète de plus en plus sur les espaces naturels, ou encore la déforestation.Mais après quatorze ans de guerre civile, la restauration de l’autorité de la communauté scientifique libérienne semble trop prématurée. Selon Moses Wogbeh, directeur général de l’Autorité pour le développement de la sylviculture (FDA), le Liberia n’est à ce jour “pas capable de gérer seul la préservation de la biodiversité” qu’abrite le pays.Le 29 janvier 2011 à 17:49 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Virgin Money reports a 36 mean gender pay gap

first_imgVirgin Money had a mean gender pay gap of 36% at April 2016, according to the organisation’s 2016 annual report.The financial services organisation recorded a median gender pay gap of 39% at April 2016.The pay gap has been attributed to the under-representation of female employees in senior leadership roles and the under-representation of of men in more junior positions.Virgin Money had a gender pay gap of 0.6% in the lowest pay quartile, 1.7% in the second quartile, 2.5% in the third quartile, and a 13.8% gender pay gap in the highest pay quartile.Virgin Money has voluntarily published its gender pay gap data ahead of the publication date set by the government of April 2018. The current timeline for mandatory gender pay gap reporting requires employers to capture data on 5 April 2017 and then publish findings no later than 4 April 2018, with this cycle continuing on a yearly basis.The reporting regulations require organisations with 250 or more employees to publish the difference between both the mean and median hourly rate of pay for male and female full-time employees; the difference between both the mean bonus pay and median bonus pay for male and female employees; the proportions of male and female employees who were awarded bonus pay; and the proportions of male and female full-time employees in the lower, lower middle, upper middle and upper quartile pay bands.Virgin Money has set a target to achieve a 50:50 gender balance by 2020 as part of its commitment to the Women in Finance Charter, which asks organisations within the financial services sector to commit to increase the representation of women in senior management positions.The percentage of women holding senior management roles increased from 18% to 22% between 2015 and 2016. As of January 2017, women made up 31% of Virgin Money’s executive committee and their direct reports.In 2016, Virgin Money focused on a range of measures to reduce the gender pay gap, such as unconscious bias training for senior managers, the launch of an app that enables staff on parental leave to stay in touch with the business and access personalised information, the promotion of shared parental leave, and the establishment of a Gender Agenda Network designed to organise events and increase education.The organisation also incorporated a gender analysis tool into its annual pay process to help managers see the impact salary and bonus decisions have on the gender pay gap within their teams, and introduced a flexible matching recruitment policy that commits to matching senior prospective employees’ current flexible-working arrangements.Virgin Money plans to take further action to address the gender pay gap and meet its Women in Finance Charter commitments in 2017. This includes setting bonus targets for all senior leaders to improve gender balance; extending unconscious bias training to all people managers and diversity training for those preparing to take on people management roles; offering a maternity mentoring scheme to all staff.The organisation will also continue to promote flexible-working arrangements by establishing a flexible-working register to increase job sharing, upgrading IT systems to better enable flexible working, and committing to allowing employees to work from home one day per week where possible.According to the 2016 annual report, the average salary increase for employees across the organisation was 4% in 2016.Jayne-Anne Gadhia, CBE, chief executive officer at Virgin Money, said: “Looking at April 2016 pay, Virgin Money had a gender pay gap of 36%. We are confident that men and women are paid on equal terms for doing the same jobs across the business, but the under-representation of women in the senior leadership team and of men in more junior areas of the business, creates this pay gap. This is not acceptable and we are committed to remedying it.”Matt Elliott, people director at Virgin Money, added: “We intend to be early adopters of the UK government’s new gender pay gap reporting requirements and support the findings of both the Hampton-Alexander and Parker reports, which advocate action to generate improved gender and ethnic equality in business.“We will continue to celebrate difference and work to ensure every [employee] feels equally valued and able to thrive at Virgin Money.”last_img read more

first_img RelatedTop 20 travel hacks and money saving tipsYou may be skint, but you can still holiday in style; here’s how.How to stay fit and healthy on holidayHow to stay fit and healthy on holiday7 ways to stay healthy on long haul flights7 ways to stay healthy on long haul flights 1. Holidays are great for your health. Most people work hard and experience a lot of stress, so it’s important not to try to do too much on holiday. Sleep as much as you can – get to bed early, lie in and take naps to help your adrenal glands recover and encourage relaxation.2. Travelling can put a strain on your health and diet. Try to avoid processed and junk food at airports and on the flight. These will give you an immediate sugar rush, followed quickly by an energy slump – when you’ll want to have another sugary snack.3. Plan what you’ll eat on the journey. Take a piece of fruit and a handful of nuts and seeds for snacks. I like Bounce Balls and Nakd bars, both are natural with no added sugar. I usually pack a salad in a Tubberware box to eat on the flight.4. Drink plenty of water, especially when flying. All that air-conditioning and the thin air in the sky really dehydrates your body.5. When on holiday, eat a big healthy breakfast, such as fruit and natural yoghurt followed by eggs or smoked salmon on wholewheat toast. Eat a good lunch plus snacks in the morning and afternoon and try to have a light dinner with no starchy carbohydates (pasta, potatoes or rice).6. Take advantage of local and seasonal food. If you’re staying by the sea, eat lots of fresh grilled fish. Oily fish – including sardines, fresh tuna, salmon and mackerel – is particularly good as it’s rich in Omega 3, which keeps your skin hydrated and encourages healthy digestion as well as weight loss.7. If you do plan a boozy night out, eat plenty of protein first and try to alternate glasses of alcohol with water. A couple of glasses of red wine is the best option. Cava has been found to be good for blood sugar management – it releases its sugar slowly into the body. Cocktails are the worst due to all the sweet mixers and sugar in them.8. Try to eat a variety of different coloured fruits and vegetables – oranges, red peppers, green courgettes, yellow sweet corn – to get a wide range of antioxidants.9. Lying in the sun feels great but you only need 10 minutes of unprotected sunshine to get your daily dose of vitamin D. After that you should use sunblock. As we get older, the collagen in our skin breaks down more rapidly, leading to lines, wrinkles and discolouring.10. To prevent the breaking down of collagen, eat lots of purple fruits, such as fresh blackberries, blueberries and black grapes. One study showed that eating tomatoes reduces your risk of turning red in the sun so have a glass of tomato juice – though it’s much safer to use sunblock!Amelia Freer is a member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists and works for the Healthy Holiday Company which offers spa holidays and yoga holidays across Europe.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Nutritional therapist Amelia Freer explains how to stick to a healthy diet and lifestyle on your summer holiday.last_img read more
