It pointed out there was no change to social housing rents for existing tenants, which is relevant to almost half of the company’s customer base.Peter Crook, chief executive of Provident Financial, said continuing favourable trends for the business helped “reinforce management’s confidence of delivering a good result for the year.” Tags: NULLcenter_img Wednesday 24 November 2010 9:05 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”Wanderoam Show Comments ▼ KCS-content last_img read more

What veterans’ poems can teach us about healing on Memorial Day

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your name here TAGSMemorial Previous articleOver 62,000 Pounds of Raw Beef Recalled amid E.coli worriesNext articleThe forgotten history of Memorial Day Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By James Dubinsky, Associate Professor of English, Virginia Tech and first published on theconversation.Memorial Day, a national holiday to honor the 1.17 million men and women who have died to create and maintain the freedoms outlined in our Constitution, is not the only Memorial Day.The holiday emerged from the Civil War as a celebration almost exclusively for veterans of the Union Army to remember those who had died. Veterans and their families from Confederate states held their own celebrations. Thus, it remains fraught with conflict and ambiguity.In 2017, seven states – Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia – chose to also celebrate some form of Confederate Memorial Day. It’s usually celebrated on April 26 – the day associated with the surrender of General Joe Johnston, nine days after General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox at the end of the Civil War.How can we overcome these deep divides?Having served 28 years in the U.S. Army and as a teacher and researcher who studies the roles veterans and their family play in society, I believe poems written by veterans that focus on honoring those who have died may give us a clue.Bridging divisionsThe tension between North and South remains. We see it not only on days dedicated to remembrance. It surfaces daily as communities such as New Orleans wrestle with whether or not to keep memorial statues honoring Confederate leaders like Robert E. Lee.Seaman Daniel Odoi of the Navy Operational Support Center of New York City presents the American flag on Memorial Day 2013. AP Photo/John MinchilloOne poet who does not ignore these divides is Yusef Komunyakaa, an Army veteran who served in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970 and earned a Bronze Star. He is now a professor at New York University.In “Facing It,” a poem about visiting the Vietnam War Memorial, Komunyakaa, an African-American, confronts the wall and issues linked to war and race. He writes:“My black face fades / hiding inside the black granite.”But he is also a veteran honoring those who died; he is balancing the pain of loss with the guilt of not being a name on the wall:“I go down the 58,022 names, / half-expecting to find / my own in letters like smoke. / I touch the name Andrew Johnson; / I see the booby trap’s white flash.”The poem ends with two powerful images that offer a glimmer of hope:“A white vet’s image floats / closer to me, then his pale eyes / look through mine. I’m a window. / He’s lost his right arm / inside the stone. In the black mirror / a woman’s trying to erase names: / No, she’s brushing a boy’s hair.”The image of the speaker becoming a “window” addresses how two vets, one white and one black, bridge the racial divide and become linked through shared acts of sacrifice and remembrance. Yet even with such a positive affirming metaphor, the speaker’s mind and heart are not fully at ease.The next image creates dissonance and worry: Will the names be erased? The concluding line relieves that worry – the names are not being erased. More importantly, the final image of a simple act of caring calls to mind the sacrifices made to protect women and children by those whose names are on the wall. As a result, their image in the stone becomes a living memorial.Memory and reflectionWe can also learn from Brock Jones, an Army veteran who served three tours of duty in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. He named his award-winning book “Cenotaph,” the name for a tomb to honor those whose graves lie elsewhere. By using the name of a monument for those not present, a monument with historical ties to ancient Greece and Egypt as well as our own culture, Brock highlights how honoring the dead goes beyond culture and country.Jones’ poems do not focus outward toward social strife, but inward. They address language’s inability to capture or express loss linked to memories of war. They also point to how those remaining alive, particularly those who have not served, might come to understand the depth of the sacrifice expressed by memorials and, by extension, Memorial Day.In “Arkansas,” a poem that takes place at the Arkansas pillar, one of 56 pillars at the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C., the speaker remembers a journey with his grandfather:“Dead eight years ago this summer / to the Atlantic pavilion engraved / with foreign names he never forgot. / Bastogne. / Yeah, we was there. / St. Marie Eglise. / We was near there.”The poem ends with the grandfather described as “a hunched figure, in front of ARKANSAS. Still, in front of ARKANSAS.” The grandfather is burdened by memories he carries, memories that render him “still” (motionless), memories that will remain with him “still.”“Memorial from a Park Bench” offers a broader perspective, one that any visitor sitting on a bench in front of a memorial might experience. For the visitor, the memorial becomes “an opened book,” a place where “A word loses its ability to conjure/trapped inside a black mirror.”The words are “names,” which “could be lines / of poems or a grocery list. / They could be just lines.” But they are not “just lines.”At poem’s end, when all is contemplated, “Here are names and black stone / and your only reflection.”Jones shifts the emotional and intellectual burden from the person on the bench to the poem’s readers, and thus to broader society. These words cannot be just lines or lists; they become, by being memorialized in a black stone, a “mirror,” the reader’s and thus society’s “reflection.” All on the bench are implicated; the names died for us, and, as a result, are us.Memorial Day and mindfulnessMemorial Day may have “official” roots honoring Union dead, but veteran poets of recent wars serving the United States have found ways to honor all those who have died in battle.Our country may be divided, but by taking a moment to pause and reflect on names etched on monument walls or gravestones, everyone on benches may see their own reflections, and in so doing further the task President Abraham Lincoln outlined in his 1865 Second Inaugural Address “to bind up the nation’s wounds…to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”By being mindful, we might understand what Robert Dana, a WWII vet wrote in “At the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C.”: that “These lives once theirs / are now ours.” You have entered an incorrect email address!

Renovation of a forge to single family home with guest room, studio and gardens. On a unique location in the city of Ghent a single-family is realized within the walls of an old industrial building. The old brick forge and carpentry became the scene for the house as scaled room. Some shed roofs are retained, others are removed. Similarly, pieces of the concrete flooring are retained or removed. The house, a wood and steel framing with rational structure and readable use of material, cuts the plot in half. The result is a south facing, bar shaped volume which absorbs the confrontation between two complementary outdoor spaces: the walled garden and the workshop. If one goes through the gate, one enters a first room, a workshop space covered with the original shed roof. Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThis open space is both a park and play area for the residents and a workplace. In that room three containers are strategically set up. Out of economic necessity, these compact prefabricated steel structures are used as storage and entry perpendicular to the house, and as ‘Bed&Breakfast’, stacked above the entrance porch. This ‘B&B’ is created by two containers internally linked to become a very vertical residence. At the same time they are used to stabilize the fragile old and by heritage intitutions protected front facade.
The second outdoor space is formed by an enclosed rear garden, bounded by a space under a maintained shed roof. This space looks back at the house. The feeling, of the room as a shed without a roof, is made permanent at any point of the plot.

Save this picture!SectionThe house is conceived as a transparent filter between the front and rear space. We inverse the classic principle: the opaque parts, in the otherwise glass front and back, are the opening parts. On summer days, when the walls are open, there is no visual separation between the more covered space to the street and the garden at the rear. Here the concept of front and rear becomes very ambiguous. A door opens very dramatically and changes the spatial constellation. On the south side the house gets translucent green plastic canopies to offer shade to the southern sun. On the first floor, these grills become a footbridge that gives the sleeping areas a relationship with the enclosed garden.

The construction of the house remains visible, slender white columns bear the open wooden scheduling. The cladding consists of untreated shingles. If they are wet, they become dark and get a varied and almost velvety appearance. Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe ground floor is characterized by the materialization of some specific and unique fixed furniture:

- The kitchen, made of green plywood, brass and green concrete
- The fireplace, a central and naked space separating element
- The entrance container, finished with polish pine plywood
- The stairs, at the same time the library, made of dark-stained oak veneer plywood and black HPL.

A sustainable project is realized by the conscious choice for a compact air-conditioned volume, well-insulated walls, triple glazing, balance ventilation and louvers on the south side to counteract extreme solar heating.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessPraça Municipal 47 Building / Arquitetura NacionalSelected ProjectsHouse in Funabashi / Koji Hatano ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Projectscenter_img “COPY” “COPY” Year:  Belgium Houses 2011 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs Year: last_img read more

EU and Japan Finalize Trade Deal Framework

first_img EU and Japan Finalize Trade Deal Framework The European Union and Japan have formally agreed to the outline of a new free trade deal. It will eventually lead to an agreement allowing free trade between two of the world’s biggest economies. There are few specific details available yet and a full and workable agreement may still take some time. The agreement is seen as a boon for the Japanese auto industry and for agricultural products from the E.U. The outline was formally signed this week in Brussels. Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, says the agreement shows the E.U.’s commitment to world trade. “We did it,” he says. “We were able to conclude political and trade talks with Japan. E.U. is more and more engaged globally.” Japan is the third-largest economy in the world and Europe’s seventh biggest export market. European Union dairy farmers have struggled with dropping domestic demand at the same time that Japan’s appetite for milk and dairy products has grown in recent years.Even with a signed agreement in place, it will likely take up to 15 years before the agreement is fully in effect. The delay gives businesses in both areas time to adjust to increased outside competition.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 7, 2017 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News EU and Japan Finalize Trade Deal Framework Previous articleU.S. Ethanol Production DeclinesNext articleOptimism Returning to the Ag Producers Barometer Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

Man accused of shooting death requests bench trial

first_img Man accused of shooting death requests bench trial Twitter Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Facebook Joshua Carrasco A man charged in the shooting death of his former roommate, originally scheduled to plead guilty Thursday morning, requested a new lawyer and a bench trial for his case.After filing a waiver of right to a jury trial on March 28, a guilty plea hearing for Joshua Carrasco was set for 10:30 a.m. Thursday in the 70th District Court of Judge Denn Whalen, but no plea was made. The defendant’s court-appointed attorney, Tony Chavez, informed Judge Whalen that Carrasco had requested a new lawyer and a bench trial. John Shrode is the prosecutor on the case.District Attorney Bobby Bland said a new lawyer would be appointed for Carrasco and a bench trial would be scheduled for a later date, but no trial date has been set at this time.A bench trial, as opposed to a jury trial, is a case presented directly to the judge, rather than a case presented to a jury.Carrasco, 30, was first charged with murder in April 2015 after he turned himself in following the shooting death of Orlando Mendivil.The probable cause affidavit stated Carrasco and Mendivil had previously been roommates at an apartment complex before being evicted, and Carrasco’s cousin told police someone broke into Mendivil and Carrasco’s apartment and took several items. Both men reportedly accused each other of being the suspect, Carrasco’s cousin told police.On the day of the shooting, Carrasco, his cousin and Mendivil were all in the living room of his cousin’s home in the 1600 block of West Seventh Street when Carrasco lit a package of fireworks and threw them out the front door of the home, a probable cause affidavit stated.Carrasco then reportedly shot Mendivil with a gun while the fireworks were going off before fleeing the scene in a dark green Ford Durango, the report detailed, and Mendivil was found dead at the home by police and EMS with a gunshot wound to the head.Jail records show Carrasco has been in the Ector County Detention Center since April 2015 and has a $500,000 bond.

Home Prices in Nevada Grow at Break-neck Speed

While Nevada showed the largest gain of all states increasing 12.6 percent year-over-year, Washington with an increase of 12.1 percent in home price appreciation,  Idaho with 11.5 percent, and Utah with 10.4 percent appreciation were among the other states on the West coast where home prices appreciated the most.The analysis also looked at states that had a larger peak-to-trough decline than the national average. It found that California, Idaho, and Michigan had all surpassed their pre-crisis home price appreciation peaks in June.Connecticut led the states where home prices in June were the farthest below their all-time home price appreciation high. Home prices in the state were still 17.6 percent below their July 2006 peak, the analysis revealed. Prices in 38 states (including the District of Columbia) have risen above their pre-crisis peaks, the analysis found.The analysis, which was based on the recently released CoreLogic Home Price Index found that the overall HPI had increased on a year-over-year basis every month since February 2012. it had gained 57.3 percent since hitting its bottom in March 2011. In June 2o18, the overall HPI was 5.2 percent higher than its pre-crisis peak in April 2006. However, when adjusted for inflation, home price appreciation remained 13.3 percent below their April 2006 peak.

Mapletree Investments bets big on European office market

first_imgShare via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink TagsEuropeOffice Real Estatecenter_img Chairman Edmund Cheng (Photos via Esplanade; Unsplash)Singapore-based real estate asset manager Mapletree Investments is launching a European office fund.The firm aims to raise a half billion euros, or around $606 million, for the Mapletreee Europe Income Trust and looks to reach that goal by the end of March, according to DealStreetAsia. Mapletree is targeting a 12 percent return on the fund.Mapletree seeded the fund with seven of its European commercial properties, including three in the United Kingdom and three on the European continent. The firm owns more than 100 properties in Europe, including 10 office properties.With the coronavirus pandemic squeezing landlords and driving down pricing, it’s a good time to buy. CBRE projects that office rents in the U.S. could fall by as much as 8 percent this year; some European markets could see a similar dip.Mapletree has around $60.5 billion in assets under management and is also active across Asia, Australia, and the United States. Institutional investors including pension funds and insurance companies are a large source of investment.In 2019, the firm made a push in the U.S. and European logistics sector with a $1.8 billion fund.

What Biden’s first 100 days meant for real estate

first_img Email Address* President Joe Biden (Getty, iStock)President Joe Biden’s administration on Wednesday unveiled a $1.8 trillion spending plan that would eliminate a “special real estate tax break” for certain investors.The partial demise of that tax break, mentioned briefly as part of the American Families Plan, is just one of several policy initiatives affecting real estate that have started to take shape under Biden, some of which fulfill promises he made on the campaign trail.The president has already extended the federal eviction and foreclosure moratoriums twice and teamed up with the Democratic Congress to distribute an unprecedented $27 billion in pandemic rent relief and emergency housing vouchers.As Biden marks his first 100 days in office on Thursday, here are the five issues that the real estate industry is watching.1031 exchangesThat “special tax break” the Biden administration alluded to is the 1031 exchange. Also known as like-kind exchanges, it allows real estate investors to defer capital gains taxes by funneling the proceeds from a sold property into a new one. Ultimately, this means investors can defer tax liabilities indefinitely by repeatedly selling properties and rolling the proceeds over.The American Families Plan, which would help fund access to education and child care, would eliminate 1031 exchanges in cases where the gains are more than $500,000. Industry experts have warned that changes to the program would prove economically devastating as the nation recovers from the pandemic.Opportunity ZonesDuring his campaign, Biden vowed to reform the Trump-era tax incentive aimed at encouraging development in designated “distressed areas.” But the question remains: What exactly will his administration try to do?On the campaign trail, Biden identified a few areas he sought to change, including increasing reporting requirements for investors. He also floated an incentive for Opportunity Zone funds to partner with community organizations to ensure that investments are dedicated to distressed areas.The key concern with the program is that it has failed to fulfill its goal of infusing investment in low-income communities. The program allowed investors and developers to defer unrealized capital gains by investing in “opportunity funds” that would, in turn, pour money into underserved communities.The latest report to find fault with the program was published last week by researchers from the University of California, Berkeley. It found that only 16 percent of the 8,000-plus census tracts designated as Opportunity Zones received investment in 2019. It also concluded that much of the money was sunk into real estate, construction and finance businesses in areas “with pre-existing upward trends in population, income and home values” and with fewer elderly and non-white residents, according to the New York Times.Fair housingShortly after his inauguration, Biden signed executive orders instructing the secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to study the effects of the Trump administration’s actions on key fair housing measures. One was the 2015 Affirmatively Further Fair Housing rule, which required local governments that receive federal funds to identify discriminatory housing policies and map out plans to combat them. Donald Trump repealed AFFH last summer.Another was the “disparate impact” rule, which codified a legal standard allowing claims of housing bias to move forward in cases where there wasn’t an explicit intent to discriminate. Last September, Trump upped the standards for such claims, establishing a five-pronged test for pursuing allegations of unintentional discrimination.This month, HUD took the first formal steps to reinstating the AFFH and “disparate impact” rules.InfrastructureThere is a lot packed into Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan, which not only pledges funds to roads, bridges and public transit, but also proposes changes to zoning laws and the public housing system.The plan reportedly includes funding for the long-delayed Gateway Tunnel under the Hudson River, a lifeline for commuters and nearby property owners when existing tunnels are eventually shut down for much-needed repairs. It also calls for the construction or rehabilitation of 500,000 homes for low- and middle-income buyers and an infusion of $40 billion into the country’s public housing system. According to a fact sheet on the plan, Biden is also pushing to eliminate exclusionary zoning laws including bans on multifamily housing.Climate goalsLast week, the president pledged that the U.S. would halve its emissions, from 2005 levels, by 2030.The plan’s success will rely, in part, on property owners. In 2019, residential and commercial properties accounted for 19 percent and 17 percent, respectively, of carbon emissions from fossil fuel combustion, including allocated electricity emissions, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Buy-in from those sectors will likely rely on incentives and investment at the federal and local levels in electrification and retrofitting programs.Contact Kathryn Brenzel Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Full Name*center_img Share via Shortlink Tags 1031 exchangesJoe BidenPoliticsReal Estate Investmentlast_img read more

A comparative study of phycobilliprotein production in two strains of Pseudanabaena isolated from Arctic and tropical regions in relation to different light wavelengths and photoperiods

first_imgPhycobiliproteins, which include phycocyanin, allophycocyanin and phycoerythrin, are the group of colouredaccessory photosynthetic pigments present in cyanobacteria (blue-green algae). Pseudanabaena is a genus ofmicroscopic cyanobacteria, cosmopolitan in distribution and known to be rich in phycoerythrins. Cyanobacteriaare photosynthetic organisms, thus, one of the factors that influences their metabolism is the quality andquantity of incident light. In order to determine the production of phycobiliproteins (mainly phycocyanin andphycoerythrin) in this genus, the quantity of these pigments was investigated in two different strains ofPseudanabaena, P. catenata USMAC16 isolated from an Arctic location (Svalbard) and P. amphigranulataUSMAC18 from a tropical location (Tasik Harapan, USM, Malaysia). The aims of this study were twofold. First,to determine the influence of different light wavelengths (white, green and red) and exposure duration (photoperiodof 12–24 h (h)) on phycocyanin and phycoerythrin production in the two strains. Second, to comparethe production of phycobiliprotein between the two strains. Highest phycocyanin production was obtainedunder red light, while phycoerythrin production was highest under green light. Highest production was achievedwith photoperiod 24:00 h L:D (L: light, D: dark) in the polar strain and 12:12 h L: D in the tropical strain. P.catenata (Arctic strain) was a good producer of phycoerythrin when grown under green light.last_img read more

BBC virtual property tours investigation opens privacy ‘can of worms’

first_imgHome » News » BBC virtual property tours investigation opens privacy ‘can of worms’ previous nextProptechBBC virtual property tours investigation opens privacy ‘can of worms’Both virtual tours suppliers and estate agents will have to be much more vigilant when uploading 3D material to the internet, says one supplier.Nigel Lewis16th April 202101,596 Views A virtual viewings platform has warned that the industry faces a major privacy headache after the BBC’s revelations that a virtual tour uploaded to Rightmove by a Dartmoor estate agency included unblurred pictures of private financial documents belonging to the owner.This included a dividend cheque and an insurance policy document, along with other material identity thieves could easily use such as family photographs.Fowlers, based in Chagford (pictured), has apologised and told the BBC that the usual blurring of photographs and other material clearly visible in the tour had ‘slipped past’ both its staff and the owner. It has since withdrawn all its 3D tours to check them before they go live again.But virtual tours now present a major headache for both estate agents and the platforms that upload and host them, which in this case was Matterport, because of their high resolution.Privacy controlA competitor virtual tours provider, Pupil, says the problem for the virtual tours industry is that there are no agreed quality or privacy control measures for suppliers and agents to adhere to.The platform launched a year ago and says it has completed 100,000 tours so far.But it claims that because agents are required to ‘capture’ the property themselves and then the information is processed, published and hosted by the hardware manufacturer, this leaves a big hole in the process – as Fowlers has discovered.“The duty of care to consumers is lost in this process, raising a growing safeguarding issue in the residential market as more viewings take place online,” says  Pupil’s spokesperson Harry Turner (pictured).“This risks customer reputations, highly personal consumer data leaks and an erosion of trust in the residential property market.”Pupil says it has a dedicated digital quality control team that checks tours before they are published which is tasked with blurring out sensitive content.This includes a bewildering array of potential bloopers including door numbers, car registration number-plates, personal documents, any reference to names of occupants, personal photographs and even items picked up in reflections.“We are acutely aware of the risks, and we believe [this kind of best practice] needs to become a more widespread to keep consumers’ identities and personal details private.”Read the BBC article.virtual viewings privacy viewings privacy BBC viewings privacy Pupil virtual viewings Harry Turner Fowlers Matterport April 16, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Christ Church Chef avoids prison for knife threat

first_imgOn 30th January 2020, Christ Church kitchen staff member was spared jail yesterday for threatening a bouncer outside of Kiss Bar after a staff party on the evening of 10 January. Oxford Crown Court heard from prosecutor Julian Lynch that the incident took place in the early hours after the staff party outside Kiss Bar on Park End Street. The kitchen staffer, Dean Lewis, 28 years old, had already admitted one count of a knife threat in a public place. The police were called in the early hours of 11 January and Lewis was arrested and the knife he threatened the bouncer with was found in his pocket. During his police interview Lewis claimed that he could remember little about the night because of the amount of alcohol he had drunk. Described in a reference by his steward at Christ Church, Lewis was termed a “hard-working and talented young chef”. Lewis pleaded guilty and the Sentencing, Judge Ian Pringle QC ordered a 12-month jail term, suspended for two years. Lewis was also ordered to complete two programmes to tackle the charge of his offences and that he must obey a two-month curfew. After being denied re-entry due to intoxication, the situation escalated with verbal abuse and then revealed what was described in court as a ‘lock knife’ with a 6cm blade. Then Lewis threatened stabbing bouncer, Emeka Collins. The court also heard that Lewis has a number of previous convictions including the possession of a blade and wounding. Christ Church have declined to comment on Lewis’ employment status and any plans put measures in place to discourage excessive drinking at staff socials in the future.last_img read more

Governor Calls A Special Session To Focus On Taxes, School Safety

first_imgGovernor Calls A Special Session To Focus On Taxes, School SafetyMarch 21, 2018  By Abrahm HurtTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Eric Holcomb announced Monday that he will call a special session of the Indiana General Assembly to address the school safety and tax issues left unfinished in the disorganized end of the 2018 session last week.It would be the first special session in a non-budget year since 2002, Holcomb said, but necessary to complete the work.“In essence, what we’ll be doing is putting some time back on the clock,” Holcomb said. “As you know, many of these items, obviously these items, were on their way to passage, and would have signed them all but we ran out of time.”One of the more chaotic moves came when, as the clock clicked closer to midnight March 14, the official end of the session, Holcomb was asked by House and Senate leaders to extend it by one hour, to 1 a.m. Thursday.After Senate Minority Leader Tim Lanane, D-Anderson objected, President Pro Tem David Long, R-Fort Wayne, relented and at 12:10 a.m. the Senate adjourned. Bills that included additional money for school safety, autonomous vehicles and the state takeover of the Gary and Muncie school corporations died.Holcomb said he was told by House and Senate leaders that he had the authority to take that action.When asked why Republicans, who hold supermajorities in both the House and the Senate, could not complete their business before the deadline, Holcomb said, “Your guess is as good as mine.”Holcomb said he wants the special session to be limited in scope, such as adding $5 million to the Indiana Secured School Fund, allowing school corporations to get extra money for school safety and providing the Muncie School Corporation a $12 million loan.House Bill 1230 included $5 million for school safety Holcomb had requested from legislators. As the clock ticked down to midnight on the final day of the session, lawmakers rushed to finish committee reports in time for a vote on the floor but failed to do so.“It is what it is. We ran out of time,” Holcomb said. “But the beauty of our system is we can fix this, and we can do it in short order.”Holcomb also said he wants the General Assembly to update the state’s tax code to conform with changes in the federal tax law.The Chamber of Commerce said if the legislature fails to address the changes, Hoosier companies would have to file their taxes twice—once for the state and once for the federal level.“For smaller-sized businesses, that could mean another $1,000-$1,500 and for the larger ones, considerably more for internal staff time and/or outside accounting expertise,” the organization said in a news release. “In total, the compliance cost could easily be north of $100 million.”When asked about the cost of bringing back legislators for the special session, Holcomb could not give an exact number but his office has estimated it could reach $30,000 a day.“Whatever the cost is, is dwarfed by the cost of inaction,” he said.Lanane released a statement saying the public should not have to spend $30,000 a day for a special session.“There is absolutely no reason the Republican supermajority couldn’t get all of these bills, some of which enjoyed bipartisan support, passed on time,” he said in a press release. “It was internal bickering within the Republican caucuses that held everything up until the last minute causing them to run out of time.”Long said the Senate will support his decision.“We will be efficient and focused, and are committed to collaborating with our colleagues in the House and with the governor to act in the best interest of Hoosiers,” he said in a statement.House Minority leader Terry Goodin, D-Austin, said the only reason there should be a special session is to address the problems with the Department of Child Services.“It should be everyone’s priority to protect the lives of at-risk children,” he said in a press release. “During the session, the Republicans chose to do nothing, hiding under the guise of waiting for a private consultant to tell us what we already know: there’s a lot that’s wrong with DCS.”Holcomb called for a review of DCS in January after the agency’s former director, Mary Beth Bonaventura, resigned and said children are at risk because of a lack of funding. A review by the Child Welfare Policy and Practice Group will publish its full findings by June 21.Holcomb said he thought that problems with DCS can wait until next year’s session.Holcomb said he would meet with leaders from the House and the Senate later this week to talk about the agenda, which might include additional items lawmakers might add.FOOTNOTE:  Abrahm Hurt is a reporter for, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Law Enforcement Explorer Post Open House

first_img The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office will host a Law Enforcement Explorer open house and Recruitment Night on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017 at 6 p.m. The event will take place at the Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center located at 1901 Lynch Road. The program is open to young men and women ages 16-20 as well as their families.Law Enforcement Exploring is a career-oriented program that gives young adults the opportunity to explore a career in law enforcement with members of local law enforcement agencies. Founded on July 12, 1963, it is one of the Exploring programs offerd by Learning for Life, a non-scouting subsidiary of the Boy Scouts of America. Law Enforcement Exploring provides educational training programs for young adults on the purposes, mission and objectives of law enforcement. The program provides leadership opportunities and community service activities.Sheriff Dave Wedding explained, “Law Enforcement Exploring is a great way for students to develop leadership skills and improve self-confidence.” Sheriff Wedding added, “Through fun and exciting ‘hands-on’ career related activities and community service opportunities, students will gain valuable experience that will help prepare them for a career in law enforcement.”The primary goals of the program are to help young adults choose a career path within law enforcement and to challenge them to become responsible citizens within their communities. During the open house, potential post members will have the opportunity to observe just a sample of what they will see and experience throughout their experience with the law enforcement explorer post program. They will also have an opportunity to meet and speak with current Explorers.The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office Explorer Post 82 is open to young men and women ages 16 through 20 years old that are enrolled in High School or College with an interest in learning more about careers in the field of law enforcement. Explorer Post 82 is entering its sixth year in Vanderburgh County. Last year, over 20 youth from local high schools and universities participated in the Explorer Post. During the year, Explorers participated in classroom and hands-on-training with full time law enforcement and emergency services personnel. Training included: first aid, handcuffing and arrest techniques, firearms, emergency vehicle operations, criminal investigations, and community emergency response.Along with the class room and hands on training, Explorers interacted with children at the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office Tent at the Vanderburgh County 4H Fair, the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival, and staffing positions during Field Sobriety Check Points. Explorers have also participated in several “Ride-A-Long” opportunities.Agencies from federal, state and local levels coordinate the Law Enforcement Exploring programs throughout the United States. The majority of the community programs are managed by local police departments, including sheriffs, chiefs of police and state police.Nationally, over 33,000 explorers participate in Law Enforcement Exploring. The program highlights include: the National Law Enforcement Exploring Leadership Academies, motor patrol ride-alongs, career achievement awards, National Law Enforcement Exploring Conferences and scholarship opportunities.Law Enforcement Career Exploring posts typically meet on a monthly basis during the school year. Most programs parallel the high school calendar and begin in the fall. There are a number of programs that start at other times during the year to meet the needs of the host organization and participants. Programs are flexible enough to fit in with other activities.For more information contact Deputy Erik Nilssen at (812) 421-6201 or click here to email him.

Tough on Crime

first_img House Republican lawmakers are working hard on legislation to combat Indiana’s illegal drug epidemic, which is wreaking havoc on our communities, creating problems for law enforcement and straining our criminal justice system. Various proposals for new laws to curb illegal drugs are moving through the legislative process, including:House Bill 1235 would give prosecutors a powerful tool to keep the worst drug dealers behind bars. If passed, a drug dealer convicted of a Level 2 felony for dealing would receive a mandatory sentence of at least 10 years in prison, but could be sentenced up to 30 years.Under House Bill 1157, drug-related felony convictions would be uploaded to a statewide database, which would trigger a stop-sale alert if the felon attempts to buy medicine containing pseudoephedrine (PSE) without a prescription. PSE is used in various cold, flu and allergy medications and is also used to make meth.Under House Bill 1390, a consumer could purchase medications containing PSE without a prescription if they have a prior relationship with a pharmacy or purchase a smaller dose. A prescription would only be required in the small number of cases where a person does not have a pre-existing relationship with a pharmacy and refuses the smaller dosage or tamper-resistant options. This works to combat “smurfing,” where persons purchase PSE at multiple stores to skirt individual purchase limits with the intent to sell it to a meth cook.House Bill 1211 would give prosecutors more tools to convict those who attempt to make meth, and those who cause meth fires.These bills reflect a strong effort by the House Republicans to find common-sense solutions to the illegal drug epidemic plaguing all areas of our state. If you have questions or input as we continue moving Indiana forward, please contact me at (317) 232-9816 or [email protected],State Rep.

Smallest OC Baseball Player Stands Tall, Inspires Team and Coaches

first_imgBy Tim KellySebastian Hudak’s unlikely journey as a baseball player began with a note handed to him by a new friend at his new school.It ended — for this season — with a spot on his league’s All-Star team and a run at the South Jersey championship.Ten-year-old Sebastian has Noonan’s Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder which often manifests in a form of dwarfism. He relocated to Ocean City in 2017 from Riverton, Burlington County with parents Chuck and Kelly and six brothers and sisters. A seventh sibling, 10-month-old Clay, joined the brood a bit later.Following a year of home schooling to better adjust to their new town, the school-aged Hudaks entered the OC public school system last September.The usual “new kid” stigma did not affect Sebastian, whose nickname is “Sea Bass.”“He never had problems making friends,” his mom said. “Sea Bass makes friends wherever he goes.”Thus, it was unusual to hear that her son had bonded with Wyatt Tolson and his twin brother Graham. What was unusual was a note Sebastian handed her soon after he entered OC Primary School.“It was the name and phone number of (the twins’) dad Dan, and an invitation to come out for the Ocean City-Upper Township fall baseball program.“It was so ‘old school’ to receive a note like that and it was so Sebastian,” she said with a laugh.He played with the “fall ball” program and this spring joined the “Padres” of the 10-and-under Ocean City Little League where he played for Coach Terry Clemens.“What immediately stood out was Sebastian’s spirit, and how the other kids rallied behind him,” Clemens said. “He’s such an underdog as the smallest kid and so enthusiastic, it raised the level of play of all the kids.  I honestly I didn’t know he had any kind of (physical challenge) until I saw him trying to run.  He was hustling as hard as he could, but he wasn’t as fast as the other kids.”“Then I spoke to his Dad and found out that he had Noonan’s Syndrome. Until then he was just the little guy trying harder than anyone.”The Padres plowed through the regular season beating all comers and reached the championship game, where they finally lost.“They really had an amazing season,” Kelly said.Sebastian’s take: “I liked playing on that team. The best part was, we were really good!”Sea Bass contributed to the Padres’ on the field, and not just as their inspiration. “He always played hard.  He has a great glove,” his coach said.  “Offensively, he gets the bat on the ball.  The only area where (Noonan’s) affected his play was running the bases.”Children growing up with Noonan’s syndrome can be affected by short stature, heart defects and other physical problems and developmental delays, according to the Mayo Clinic website.In Sebastian’s case, a mild heart murmur shortly after birth developed into a larger problem with his heart valve and eventually, the Noonan’s diagnosis and open heart surgery. Since then, his symptoms have been managed well by his parents and doctors.“His current height is four feet, two inches”, his mom said. His spirit is so big it can’t be measured, both coaches said, and none of the physical challenges has held Sebastian back.The Hudak family needs just one more kid to field its own baseball team.

That rubbed off on all of the other players.”The other Hudaks are Fisher, 17; Mary, 15; Wade, 13; Charlie, 11; Poppy, 6; Ollie, 4; and baby Clay.Following their son’s big season with the regular team, Kelly was surprised to receive an e-mail from Tolson, asking why there had been no response to his call for players interested in representing the league on the All-Star tournament team.“(Sebastian) is exactly the kind of guy every team needs,” he said. He’s that kid who tries his hardest all the time, no matter what (the score might be),” Tolson said.Kelly was stunned. “He really did well (in the regular season).   But the All-Stars?  We didn’t respond initially because we assumed he was not at that level.”But when tourney play began there he was. Designated as a sub, Sea Bass came off the bench.Sebastian Hudek is introduced before a recent Ocean City Little League All-Star tournament game.In tournament play, Sebastian made his mark just as he did in the regular season, and again raised his team’s level of play. They went 2-1 in pool play to advance to the knockout round and reached the South Jersey semifinals before falling to Northfield.Inserted in right field against Middle Township, Sebastian made a spectacular catch to help preserve an 8-6 victory. “It was the defensive play of the game,” Tolson said. “It pumped everybody up.  They were so excited for their teammate.”Ocean City Little League official Greg Donohue said inclusion is a big part of the league’s mission.“We leave it up to the parents,” Donohue said. “If the parents think their child can benefit from participating, we make every effort we can to accommodate the opportunity to play baseball.”No one would doubt Sebastian benefitted. Earlier in the regular season, the youngster made an unusual request of his coach.“Sebastian told me ‘I want to pitch’ and we had the opportunity to put him out there on the mound,” Clemens said. “He did an outstanding job, pitching a scoreless inning.”Soon after the season, the note-passing that started Sea Bass’s baseball career came full circle.“I received a beautiful thank you note,” Clemens said. “Sebastian mentioned his stint pitching for us as one of the things he was thankful for.“That’s the kind of kid he is.”Mom Kelly Hudak with the younger branch of the family from left: Poppy, Clay, Sebastian and Ollie.

Experts explore how social networks influence behavior and decision-making

first_img Read Full Story Scholars and social media experts convened at Harvard Law School Feb. 6 to examine the ways in which electronic interactive media can sway human decision-making and behavior.The conference, “Social Media and Behavioral Economics,” was sponsored by Harvard Law School’s new Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy and created by the program’s director, Cass Sunstein ’78. Sunstein returned to the HLS faculty last August following three years in the Obama Administration as administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Office of Management and Budget.While serving in the OMB, Sunstein was known for trying to make the federal regulatory system “as sensible as possible” by applying cost-benefit analyses and assessments of human behavior to his reviews of proposed governmental rules. It was an approach in keeping with his previous work, such as the 2008 book, “Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness,” co-written with behavioral economist Richard H. Thaler, in which Sunstein has advocated that low-cost solutions are often better options than government regulation.Read more on the Harvard Law School website.last_img read more

Over and Under Seeding

first_imgFall is rapidly approaching, and homeowners will soon be interseeding or overseeding their lawns. Interseeding vs. overseedingInterseeding is the practice of seeding the same species into itself to increase lawn thickness and recover lost grass. For example, tall fescue is interseeded into tall fescue in the fall to improve the overall quality of the lawn, which may have declined through the summer stress period. Different cultivars may be used, but the turfgrass species should be the same. Core aeration is a common practice prior to interseeding, particularly in tall fescue. The benefits include exchanging soil and air, relieving compaction, increasing water filtration and improving planting or seedbed conditions. Overseeding is the practice of temporarily introducing a second turfgrass species – typically a cool-season grass – into a permanent species – typically a warm-season species. This is done to add winter color or traffic tolerance. An example would be overseeding a bermudagrass baseball field in the fall with perennial ryegrass, for a green field in the early spring. The second species can compete with the permanent species for light, water, space or nutrients, so overseeding can become an additional stress during green-up in the spring. Of the warm-season turfgrasses, bermudagrass is best adapted to and most tolerant of overseeding. Grasses that only have stolons and no rhizomes, like centipedegrass and St. Augustinegrass, should not be overseeded. Successful overseeding involves growing healthy grass prior to overseeding; proper seed and seeding rate selection; overseeding timing and preparation; post planting maintenance; and effective spring transition. It is particularly important to maintain proper soil fertility, relieve soil compaction and prevent excessive thatch development.Choose wiselyOverseeding selection involves selecting grasses that are suited to particular needs. Annual ryegrass has been replaced by perennial ryegrasses because of improved turf quality, color, stress and pest tolerance, and manageability. “Intermediate” ryegrasses tend to perform as the name implies – somewhere between annual and perennial ryegrass. Unfortunately, most are more like annual ryegrass, not half way between the two. Overseeding rates generally range between 5 and 10 pounds per 1,000 square feet in lawns. In higher traffic situations, like sports fields and golf courses, the seeding range is between 8 and 12 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Use certified (blue tag) seed that is free of weed species to maintain quality turf. Use seed treated with fungicides, like Apron, particularly for early fall overseeding since seedling blight diseases can be a problem.The 10-pound seeding rate generally provides a suitable lawn for fall use, while the 5-pound rate provides a thinner lawn and may not provide coverage until spring. Seeding rate generally relates to desired appearance and intended traffic or use. Higher traffic areas need higher seeding rates, but may lead to more difficult spring transition. Balancing seeding rate with need and desired appearance can affect bermudagrass the following spring.Proper timing of overseeding should result in a gradual transition from the warm-season turf to the cool-season turf. Overseed when soil temperatures are approaching 75 degrees F at a 4-inch depth, night temperatures fall into the 50s, average, midday temperatures are in the mid-70s or two to for weeks before the average, annual, first-killing frost date.Good soil contactInsure success by having good soil to seed contact. Prepare the seedbed by closely mowing or scalping with some light, vertical mowing. Then blow, sweep or vacuum loose plant debris from the soil surface. Generally, the more the turf is opened, the better the establishment rate and the more competitive the cool-season turf will be in the spring. Seed that germinates in thatch or above the soil surface is more likely to dry-out and die.After dragging the seed into the soil, lightly water to maintain good surface moisture and get the seed to germinate. Irrigate three to five times per day until the seedlings are well established. The total amount of water applied during a day would seldom exceed half an inch. Irrigate without causing puddling on the soil surface, as extra water encourages disease. After germination, gradually reduce the frequency and increase the time of irrigation until a normal irrigation program can be established. Begin mowing when seedling height is 30 percent higher than desired. Use a mower with sharp blades and mow when the grass is dry to reduce seedling injury. Use a rotary-type mower for the first mowing to insure seedlings are cut and not ripped. Transitioning to a reel-type mower after the second or third mowing will produce a high-quality appearance.Fertilize after seedling emergence (generally three weeks after seeding). Earlier fertilizing may encourage warm-season turf competition. One pound of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet per month is adequate. Use a soil test report to find out how much phosphorus is needed.

Brands To Believe In

first_imgBRO scratches beneath the greenwashed veneer to uncover the most environmentally conscious outdoor companies, including the brands that are most active in protecting public lands.The announcement blasted through the Salt Palace Convention Center’s speakers at a level that was hard to miss. By the third warning, it was clear what Outdoor Retailer and the Outdoor Industry Association wanted—everyone needed to be out in the streets, signs in hand, starting the march through Salt Lake City to the Utah state capitol a few blocks away.In about 2,500 ways, they got what they wanted—that’s the number of Outdoor Retailer attendees that made the march uptown on a July day in 2017 in a pissed-off farewell to a city and state that the industry decided didn’t care about public lands, or by extension, them.But even as the large, boisterous crowd made its way up State Street toward the end of a week filled with impassioned speeches decrying the state of Utah and worshiping Bears Ears, despite the happy hours benefiting the Access Fund and Conservation Alliance, despite the buildup for the march and the palpable excitement to leave Utah in Outdoor Retailer’s dust en route to the more politically-hospitable Denver, the show floor of the Salt Palace seemed remarkably…unchanged.Showgoers hustled through the narrow corridors between booths en route to afternoon meetings, happy hours kept their taps flowing, and business continued as if the public lands debate weren’t even on their radar. For some, it wasn’t—they inexplicably didn’t even know about the march. For others, their explanation of playing hookie on what seemed like required group advocacy time was as simple as a shrug. “It’s business as usual. Someone has to keep the lights on.”For some brands, it’s just that simple: Sure, without public lands, selling outdoor gear gets harder, but if we can’t sell gear because we’re too busy saving public lands, then what’s the point?Not everyone took that line, though. Scarpa’s entire booth was vacant, chairs blocking the entrance and a white sign with “GONE MARCHING” scribbled in marker. Other brands made their statements before the show, like Patagonia and Arc’teryx (a Canadian company), which quit the trade show months earlier over the Trump Administration’s decision to reverse President Obama’s designation of Bears Ears National Monument. Their goal? Pressure Emerald Expositions, the organizers of the Outdoor Retailer show, into fighting the state or leaving it. Their plan worked.But the march laid out in stark contrast the difference in environmental and political action across a seemingly (or at least, that’s what OIA would like you to think) united industry. On one end of the spectrum, Patagonia actively attempts to limit growth and profit. The idea is that by making their products last longer, repairable, or reusable, they’ll sell fewer and create less waste, put less in landfills, etc. Not to mention taking legal action against the government over environmental deregulation and bailing out of the industry’s biggest meeting in an effort to hijack the show from a state (and the economy of that state) that they don’t believe has the industry’s best interests in mind.Before the decision was made to leave Utah, the OIA would have had brands and consumers believe the biggest change would be made by brands sticking around the show—fighting—marching—raising their voices. The majority of brands apparently agreed, and most would probably say they stuck around for those same reasons. “Now more than ever, we need to act together to advocate and find a common voice to protect our most important asset—our public lands,” REI CEO Jerry Stritzke wrote in a letter posted on the company’s website just after Patagonia dropped out, explaining why his company wouldn’t be following suit.But if you were standing on the show floor while the seminal act of outdoor advocacy was organizing just outside the Salt Palace’s not-very-thick walls, you would be fair to think fighting for the outdoors is vital to the industry, so long as you didn’t already have a sales meeting scheduled.Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard told GreenBiz in 2013 that companies calling themselves “green” is just a buzzword that carries little weight, a marketing ploy targeted toward making consumers feel good about their purchases. Instead, he argues, brands should simply be making less product—“green” or not. That’s the basis of Patagonia’s environmental philosophy: encouraging their customers to buy less and create less waste.On the other end, The North Face looks to capitalize on that “green” idea in an effort to grow their piggy bank for environmental use on the back end. Last year, TNF launched its “Walls Are Meant For Climbing” campaign, donating $1 million to a trust dedicated to preserving public lands.And the fight for public lands might be the biggest window into brands’ motivations yet. Rather than universally supported causes like using recycled materials in product, supplying clean drinking water, or picking up trash, causes like the public lands fight and climate change are politically and culturally polarizing. While brands were, in the past, hesitant to endorse a single position on topics like this for fear of alienating a segment of their consumer base (especially for brands like Patagonia and The North Face whose customers extend far beyond the often politically homogeneous outdoor athlete), they’re more willing to take that potential hit in favor of the cause.Patagonia made headlines last winter for suing the Trump Administration over its delisting of Bears Ears National Monument, potentially the most effective yet riskiest method of securing America’s public lands. The listed defendants: Donald Trump, Ryan Zinke and a collection of other administration bureaucrats. While the statement was applauded by many of the brand’s customers, the hashtag #BoycottPatagonia began circulating online, an obvious sign that at least some potential customers were displeased.If a brand was willing to skip the march at Outdoor Retailer in favor of meeting with buyers, they likely wouldn’t be willing to sacrifice becoming the butt of a Twitter war with the Interior Department. Patagonia clearly didn’t care, pushing ahead with the suit. But then again, they want to sell fewer products anyway.PatagoniaWhile bringing out the big guns themselves, Patagonia also has a big belief in smaller, grassroots organizations, giving 1 percent of their sales (that’s more than just their profits) to these tiny, local groups annually. Grant winners include organizations demolishing dams, working on forest and waterway restoration, fighting climate change on a local level, protecting marine habitats, endangered plants and animals, and supporting local, sustainable agriculture. Over $89 million has gone out to groups like this since 1989. Plus, a new program called Patagonia Action Works gives everyday people who want to help out the resources to find local grant winners, encouraging more of their customers to give back too.ObozFor Oboz, the activist philosophy is simple: For every pair of shoes sold by the Bozeman, Montana boot manufacturer, they plant a tree. Since it was founded, the company has partnered with Trees for the Future to give a boost to biodiversity, food, crop windbreaks, mudslide control, and even tree-sourced medicine. As of August 2018, Oboz has spearheaded the planting of over 1,931,000 trees. At many Oboz retailers, you’ll walk out of the store with a sapling for simply trying a pair of boots on. “Like Dr. Seuss’ Lorax, I believed Oboz could speak for the trees,” said John Connelly, president and founder of Oboz. “The story was my favorite to read aloud to my kids and the tale has always stuck with me. So when we started Oboz, we could put the Lorax’s story into action and it was the right fit for our brand. People love trees.”Aspen Skiing CompanyWho has more to lose from climate change than the ski industry? Sure, pushing for renewable energy, funding climate change advocacy groups, and lobbying for political policy that acknowledges the risk of climate change does make good business sense for a brand like the Aspen Skiing Company (also known as Skico, which owns a collection of mountains primarily in Colorado), but they go above and beyond. The company has worked hard to diminish their own internal environmental impact, supported the advocacy group Protect Our Winters (POW), testified for the closure of two of Colorado’s coal power plants, filed legal briefs to the Supreme Court arguing that the EPA is required to regulate carbon dioxide emissions, and even boycotted Kleenex-brand products in their resorts over environmental concerns. “When it comes to sticking their neck out politically, [others] might not be as far out…Aspen Ski Co. has definitely been a leader in the industry,” POW’s executive director told the Denver Post.prAnaAnyone who has worked in retail knows the waste that is shipped into each store from retailers. On days new shipments of apparel arrive, plastic “poly bags” used to package individual garments pile up in garbage cans until they overflow. prAna decided to do away with the simple yet often-overlooked waste, instead rolling their garments and wrapping them in twine for shipment, a move the brand claims had kept 10.6 million poly bags out of landfills between 2011 and 2016—roughly the weight of 25 adult blue whales. But the brand doesn’t stop there. Sustainability is close at heart, with prAna making an effort to stick to organic cotton, recycled wool, hemp, recycled polyester, and responsibly-sourced down in as many of their products as possible.The North FaceTNF co-founder Doug Tompkins was a close friend of Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, and their environmental habits made that apparent, even if the brands utilize slightly different methods of advocacy today. Tompkins and his wife Kristine McDivitt Tompkins started spending their fortune (a total of $345 million) by buying large swaths of South American lands. Tompkins was killed in a kayaking accident in 2015 but earlier this year his wife finished the deal, donating 1 million acres to the government of Chile in exchange for the government designating another swath of land (they ended up adding another 9 million acres) to expand the country’s national parks and create a handful of new ones, growing the system by 40 percent.Hometown HeroesFarm to Feet SocksThese guys keep the sock business local by relying entirely on American materials (i.e. American sheep) and manufacturing done exclusively in the Carolinas. They claim to take “Made In the USA” one step further than most.Recover Brands This Hickory, North Carolina company makes shirts and other apparel entirely out of recycled materials. Post-consumer plastics (some of their shirts are made from water bottles—roughly 8 per shirt) and post-industrial cotton help keep these materials out of area landfills.ENOAsheville-based Eagles Nest Outfitters is, alongside Patagonia, part of One Percent for the Planet, giving 1 percent of their sales to environmental nonprofits. Plus, early this year, they announced that for every hammock sold, the brand would commit to planting two trees—one for each end of the hammock.Half-Moon OutfittersWith eight stores scattered across Georgia and South Carolina, the specialty outdoor retailer puts a high priority on sustainability. The chain’s second oldest shop is en route to being completely net-zero, meaning it produces roughly as much energy from rooftop solar panels as it uses. Another store features a large “tree” with metal limbs and solar panel leaves, aimed at powering a large part of that location.REPREVEWith aforementioned brands like Patagonia, prAva, Recover Brands, and more using their recycled fabrics, Greensboro, North Carolina’s REPREVE is a leading player in sustainable textiles. They’ve transformed over 13 billion plastic bottles into fibers and fabrics that then make technical wicking, cooling, and water-repellent materials popular within and without the outdoor industry.last_img read more

Swiss schemes have ‘long way to go’ on responsible investment

first_imgMost of the 20 largest Swiss pension funds do not systematically consider sustainability criteria in their investment decisions, instead seeming to see responsible investment as an add-on rather than integral part of the investment process, according to ShareAction and WWF Switzerland.The conclusions are based on a survey of the 20 largest* pension funds in Switzerland, representing CHF281bn (€253bn) in assets, or around 36% of all Swiss occupational pension funds.Sixteen of the pension funds participated in the survey by filling out a questionnaire, while the other four were assessed only on the basis of publicly available information.WWF and ShareAction then grouped the pension funds into quintiles, ranging from “best practice” to “underpeformers/no scoring possible”. None of the pension funds obtained the “best practice” score or were classed as “underperformers”.There were five that scored the highest overall, being classed as demonstrating “good practice” : BVK Kanton Zurich, Pensionskasse Post, Pensionskasse Stadt Zurich, Bernische Pensionskasse and CPEG-État de Genève.Sonia Hierzig, research officer at ShareAction and author of the survey report, said: “The results demonstrate that, whilst the 20 funds we looked at do consider responsible investment, there’s a long way to go to adopt international best practice, particularly when it comes to transparency and climate risk management.”Overall, according to the report, “the industry still seems to understand Responsible Investment mainly as an activity separate from other aspects of the investment process, rather than fully integrating environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) considerations into investment decisions”.Only one pension fund has developed a strategy on the financial risks related to climate change, the groups said.The survey found that nine of the 16 participating funds have a detailed responsible investment policy, four have a general policy and the remainder none.All of the participating pension funds outsource some or all investment management, and nine said they took the responsible investment capabilities of all asset managers and consultants into account when choosing which to hire.Only two of the 20 pension funds have signed up to the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment, according to the survey report.It noted that five of the pension funds surveyed were founding members of SVVK-ASIR, the Swiss association for responsible investment, “which indicates that Swiss pension funds are increasingly taking up responsible investment activities”.SVVK-ASIR could not be reached for comment by the time of publication.*Based on AUM in 2014.

WLAX : Holden develops into consistent scorer for Syracuse in junior year

first_img Comments Published on April 18, 2011 at 12:00 pm Near the end of her freshman season, Sarah Holden roared like she never had before. Holden stood in the middle of a circle with her teammates on the Syracuse women’s lacrosse team. To a bystander watching from afar, it would look like nothing more than a team discussing its Big East finale at Rutgers in April 2009.But the team made up what it calls the noise circle. Players make a cacophony of noises to get themselves and their teammates pumped up. The players were yelping and growling. But suddenly, this time, the quiet freshman Holden put them to shame.‘I had no idea I could do that,’ Holden said. ‘It just kind of came out.’Holden, who is now a junior, has changed a lot since her freshman year. This season the midfielder has started in nine of the team’s 12 games. She has scored in all but two of those games, amassing 19 goals on the season. That tally is the third most on the Orange (5-7, 3-1 Big East). Although she is not the team’s star, she said she feels established as a hustle player. And even after moving up the ranks, Holden still roars before every game.By the fall of her senior year in high school, Holden was still not committed to a college. Syracuse head coach Gary Gait arrived at SU that same fall to a recruiting class far from complete. He had seen Holden play against his daughter and remembered her.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘She was dominating at Marcellus (High School) and certainly the best player on the team,’ Gait said. ‘It was a situation where I got here in September and I had to regroup and find some last-minute recruits to fill a class, and Sarah was certainly one of the local standouts.’Holden said that when she got to SU, she went from being one of those local stars to being a rookie on an established college team.Over the past few years, senior attack Tee Ladouceur said the biggest change she’s seen in Holden has been confidence. Holden was a good athlete when she came in, but Ladouceur said she has become a much more effective contributor as she’s matured.‘Now that other people have graduated, she’s stepped into the roles of other people and has a much bigger role on the team these days,’ Ladouceur said.Last season Holden started only once and scored four goals. At the end of that season, she set goals of getting more playing time and earning a consistent starting spot. She worked particularly hard on her fitness in the offseason to achieve those goals.Now not only is she playing and starting more, but she has also scored at least once in each of the past seven games. She said this season she has been a utility player of sorts.‘I’m more of a hustle person, a person that can look to step up more but needs to fit the role of really whatever the team needs,’ Holden said.And although she is a standout in the noise circle, Holden often goes unnoticed in her role on the team because of the presence of strong offensive players such as Ladouceur, Michelle Tumolo and Katie Webster.Yet Holden has been a consistent scorer with the ability to get back and defend. Gait said Holden is particularly good at cutting off the ball, which helps get her open to score.Gait still sees room for improvement in the former last-ditch recruit. Despite the impressive number of goals she’s had this season, Gait wants her role on the team to increase.‘One thing she could focus a little more on is a little dodging and actually taking the ball to the net a little bit more,’ Gait said. ‘She could step up her shooting a little bit and score some more goals for us.’[email protected]center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Jamaica Sees Record Low Unemployment Rate of 7.2%

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica – Jamaica’s unemployment rate has dipped to a new record low of 7.2 per cent as of October 2019, according to the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN).The new rate represents a decline of over 1 percentage point. In July 2018, SATIN reported that the unemployment rate had fallen to a new low of 8.4 per cent.According to STATIN, the employed labour force for October 2019 was 1,248,400, which was 29,200 or 2.4 per cent larger than in October 2018.It said the increase in employment for females was nearly twice that of males during the period under review. The number of employed males increased by 10,600 to 682,800 while employed females moved up by 18,600 to 565,600.STATIN said the occupation group ‘Clerks’ had the largest increase in employment of 17,700 persons (19.3per cent), between October 2018 and October 2019. Some 109,400 people are now employed in this group. Of the increase in employment in this group, females accounted for 11,200 persons.The second-highest increase was for the occupation group ‘Service Workers and Shop and Market Sales Workers’ which grew by 13,900.The government’s increased efforts to strengthen the numbers in the security forces are paying off as STATIN is reporting that the largest change in employment by industry group was in ‘Public Administration & Defence; Compulsory Social Security’. This group increased by 10,800 persons, moving from 60,300 in October 2018 to 71,100 in October 2019.This group also saw the largest increase in male employment (6,700), moving from 31,100 to 37,800. The industry group ‘Hotels & Restaurants Services’ accounted for the largest increase in female employment of 4,800 moving from 62,300 in October 2018 to 67,100 in October 2019.However, employment decreased in ‘Agriculture, Hunting, Forestry & Fishing’ by 6,500 persons to 188,500 over the same period.And, while it remains high, the unemployment rate for youth aged 14-24 years, was 21.1 per cent in October 2019 compared to 24.9 per cent in the comparable period in October 2018. The unemployment rate for male youth decreased by 3.6 percentage points to 18.2 per cent in October 2019, while the unemployment rate for female youth declined by 3.9 percentage points to 24.7 per cent during the same period.In the meantime, STATIN has advised that the number of unemployed persons in Jamaica in October 2019 was 96,700, a decrease of 19,000 (16.4per cent) when compared to October 2018. It said male unemployment decreased by 3,000 to 43,300 in October 2019 while the number of unemployed females declined by 16,000 persons to 53,400.last_img read more

Russell Westbrook clinches third straight triple-double season

first_img“It’ll hit me at some point,” Westbrook told reporters afterward, when asked about the trio of triple-doubles. “Like it’s gonna hit everybody else in this room, too.”Thunder teammate Paul George has already pondered the accomplishment.”He’ll go down as a Hall of Famer, one of the best,” George said (via ESPN). Nobody, I don’t believe, will be able to match that or beat that. You’ve got to be wired a certain way on a nightly basis to be able to compete at that level. He’s special.”OKC coach Billy Donovan echoed those thoughts. And just like that, Westbrook will now average a triple-double for the third straight season.Before Westbrook’s first triple-double season a couple of years ago, no one had performed the feat since 1962, when Oscar Robertson became the first player in league history with the achievement. Related News NBA wrap: Magic put on stunning offensive performance, move up in playoff race Russell Westbrook has done it again.The Thunder point guard had 15 assists in a 123-110 win over the Pistons Friday night. Just another typical Westbrook performance in that category, yet that outing means he will now average at least 10 assists per game this season. “I think the fact that he has done this three years in a row, people don’t understand what has happened, in my opinion,” Donovan said. “And I’m shocked that they don’t talk about it. And I know they’re numbers, and I get all that stuff, but in terms of the historic part of the game, people are going to look back in time, and I think what he has done will be more appreciated later on than it is right now.”Westbrook is now averaging 22.9 points,11.1 rebounds and 10.6 assists this season. There’s not a statistic for “incredible plays,” but he performed one Friday night with this no-look assist to Steven Adams.T-Ferg is all of us right now.— OKC THUNDER (@okcthunder) April 6, 2019″[I’m] just blessed,” Westbrook said. “I do what I do every single night, regardless of what anybody says, what they call it, what they say.”last_img read more

Fireworks Display Supports Riverview’s Future

first_img“We’re blessed to have this beautiful view that our patients, in their most vulnerable time, are able to get lost in. They can take a step back, take in the serene environment and put themselves in the right frame of mind for their journey to recovery. We firmly believe the environment plays a vital role in the healing process,” O’Brien said. Kelli O’Brien, Riverview’s chief hospital executive, said the event aided a recent remodel of the medical center’s oncology pavilion, which overlooks the serene river setting and assists patients in healing their minds and their ailments. Guests have access to a variety of food options, including popular food trucks, as well as inflatable rides and games, not to mention a front row seat to the fireworks show. Entrance to the event serves as a donation to the Meridian Health Foundation’s Giving Heals campaign, which supports Riverview Medical Center’s ongoing initiatives to strengthen oncology services, improve clinical outcomes, enhance the patient experience and broaden clinical research and academic programs. This event is one of many that has contributed to the more than $95 million raised by the foundation in support of Hackensack Meridian Health medical centers in Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex counties. And on July 3, after the sun sets, the river will once again reflect River view’s mission to care for the community when the spectacular lights of the seventh annual Family Fireworks on The Navesink, a major fundraiser at the DiPiero home near the Oceanic Bridge, are reflected off the water. “It’s a joy to host this event every year,” said event chair and Riverview Medical Center Foundation trustee Hilary DiPiero. “It has continued to grow and attract new community members, many of whom leave with a commitment to support Riverview Medical Center. We hope that this year’s event will be even more successful than those of previous years.” O’Brien added that without fundraisers like the forthcoming fireworks extravaganza, additions like the oncology pavilion and new technology would not be available to medical center personnel. The display has consistently delivered on its promise to light up the night sky for all within view, including the 400 guests who attended an exclusive viewing party hosted by the DiPieros last summer. The people behind Riverview Medical Center, where picture windows have been maximized in its new cancer center, believe the calm views of the Navesink can inspire serenity and healing. “It’s because of the community’s support with events like this that we’re able to do what we do best,” O’Brien said. “We’ve been on the river for 90 years, and every step of the way it’s the community’s support that has helped us prepare for the future and endure.” The beautiful NavesinkRiver can be so many thingsto different people. Reservations for the event are required.

Holmdel Probes Turf Field Controversy

first_imgThe idea that Vieiro came up with the idea for the turf field is “ludicrous.” He accused Hinds of “putting on a charade.” Pascucci said, “My working hypothesis is that T&M was ordered to do this. They didn’t do it on their own. That the administration and probably two township committee members directed, ordered, whatever you want to call it, that these things be done.” He did not name the people he referred to. By Allison Perrine The investigation will continue Sept. 23 with the testimony of former administrator Donna Vieiro, who did not attend Thursday’s meeting. She was the administrator for six years, but under scrutiny for claims of nepotism and improperly directed checks, she resigned in good standing. “Once Donna directed me to start working on the project, I had a conversation with Eric (Mayor Hinds) about turf fields…He just asked me ‘How are we doing with the turf fields?’” Stevens said. The rushed timeline prompted laughs from several attendees. The last 20 minutes of themeeting were given to publiccomment. Last year the committee approved a $2.5 million bond ordinance for a broad scope of improvements for all recreation groups in Holmdel Youth Activities Association (HYAA), said deputy mayor Mike Nikolis. But he later discovered that money was “grabbed” and “taken from them. That’s wrong,” he said. Nine residents spoke.None were happy about thecontroversy. Nearly all of the questions came from Nikolis and committeemen Rocco Pascucci and Greg Buontempo. HOLMDEL – For months, several Holmdel elected leaders have wanted to pin down exactly who authorized cost related to a $2.1 million turf field project without township committee approval. “Why don’t you admit you were behind it? You are not fit to be mayor of this town. Why don’t you step down before this gets worse.” In their responses under oath, both Mullan and Stevens said they received direction from Vieiro to prepare work for a new turf field at the swim club, located at the end of Bailey Lane. The next hearing on the issue will be held Monday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. While reading the consent agenda in his packet, under bills payable, he said he discovered that $2.1 million was going to be redirected for an all-purpose turf field at the Holmdel swim club. “That’s not normal, you don’t do that. I was shocked. It was hidden in there, clearly hidden,” Nikolis said. “And that’s not the proper way to do government business.” James Yannello pointed out that Hinds, while on the committee in years past, tried and failed to bring turf fields to land bordered by County Route 520 (Main Street/Newman Springs Road), Route 34 and County Road 4 (South Holmdel Road), and then later at Cross Farm Park. Direction for the work wasgiven by Vieiro mostly byphone calls, he said, but somewere in emails, meetings andwritten correspondences. In questioning the DPW’sStevens, Pascucci asked whodirected him to do the prepwork at the swim club. Nikolis said he found it “troubling that taxpayer money was spent without approval, without resolution, without discussion.” Ultimately it took three or four weeks to do, Mullan said, but he said it was not uncommon to be pressured to finish field projects quickly so that they are ready for fall sports. That controversy over the expenditure of taxpayer dollars came to a head at a rare “special investigatory hearing” at town hall Sept. 12, held before a public audience of at least 40 residents. At the two-hour-long hearing, mostly focused on the turf field near the Holmdel swim club, the five township committee members heard testimony from Francis Mullan of T&M Associates, the township’s engineering firm, and Victor Stevens Jr., director of infrastructure and operations at the township public works department. As he left the meeting, Hinds told The Two River Times, “Obviously, everybody in the town knows I’ve tried hard to try to get multipurpose turf. This was a great location; it should have been a great project. “I never heard of this,” said committeeman Rocco Pascucci. “We never discussed this in public or private session with anyone. I find that irregular, unethical and maybe illegal,” he said. An additional $58,000 was spent for preparation work before it was listed on the governing body’s agenda. “The administrator was so clear and concise and directive. It was made very clear to me that this was to be fast-tracked,” said Mullan. “This normally would take three or four months and I was told they were, she was, expecting me to get it done in three or four days,” he said. “Unfortunately, some people want to make it very political. I’m sad for Holmdel that the process wasn’t followed to the ‘T’. I’m sad that people changed their minds, but we move on.” last_img read more

Liberian Women Raise Money to Support Haiti

first_imgIn early October, many countries were hit by Hurricane Matthew. Of the countries ravaged by the hurricane, Haiti recorded the highest number of deaths and loss of property.Haiti is no stranger to disaster. In 2008, the country was rocked by an earthquake, and while still recovering from its devastating effects, the country was again swept by an outbreak of cholera, which caused the deaths of hundreds of Haitians.Haiti, which means “mountainous country,” is located in the Caribbean. With a population that is mostly black, many elements of Haitian culture originate from Africa, the continent from which many Haitians trace their roots.In many historical accounting, Haiti is considered the first Black Republic. The country gained its independence after successfully revolting against their slave masters. Although Liberia did not gain independence from slave masters, I could not help but observe some similarities between the two black nations of Liberia and Haiti, with Haiti being the first free Black Republic to gain their independence from slave masters, and Liberia being the first African Country to become a Republic. Both nations have also been plagued with mismanagement and poor governance by their leaders, with both countries still being considered among “the poorest countries in the world.” Dismal health care, low education, lack of basic infrastructures and social services, to name but a few, stand out as unwanted features of the two nations.So here is Haiti once again, devastated by another natural disaster, and the world either shrugs with indifference, or move into action to support.In 2014 when Liberia was hit by the deadly Ebola Virus disease, Haiti, a “poor” country like Liberia, looked to her sister country and came to our aid albeit in a small way. Still, they came.In solidarity with Liberia, Haiti joined ActionAid member counties to raise funds in support of ActionAid-Liberia’s Ebola Response, which was mainly focused on support to vulnerable women and children in affected areas. This money was timely and needed. Along with its local partners, ActionAid-Liberia was prompt in providing support to several Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs), quarantined families, and provided several needy communities with support “kits.” Again, the support from Haiti (and other ActionAid Federation countries) proved to be timely, needed and impactful.Today, Haiti has recorded over 800 deaths, with of course, women and children being most affected. Thousands have lost their homes, leaving them homeless and their livelihood affected.Liberia can never forget. We remembered that in our time of need, Haiti, also a “poor nation,” responded as best as they could. They answered our call for help. True to the nation’s character of never abandoning a friend, a number of national organizations that participated in ActionAid-Liberia’s Ebola Response efforts which Haiti supported have decided to join ActionAid-Liberia in fundraising efforts to support women and children recently affected by the deadly Hurricane Matthew.AAL sounded the urgent call to action! It was a call to raise funds to assist and support Haiti. Mrs. Naomi Tulay-Solanke, founder of the Community Health Initiative (CHI), decided to lead the initiative on behalf of AAL’s local partner organizations. The organizations included CHI, COSEO, NEP and KEEP along with some ActionAid Liberia staff and other well-meaning Liberian women who also heard and responded to the call for action. They, too, decided to support. The women organized 3 days of car wash at various traffic lights around Monrovia and offered to wash the windscreens of cars and serve passengers and passersby hot tea to raise funds. For 2 days the women set aside personal pride and made time for up to 4 hours in the early hours of the morning to undertake the exercise. They washed cars. They served tea, often to passengers andpassersby, who took them because the women insisted. Some of the women explained that at the beginning, passersby were curious to know why they were doing what they were doing. Once explained, they would receive small additional donations. For these Liberians, it seems to be the right thing to do. And yet, it was not to be unexpected that a few passersby were rude and abrasive while others were very supportive expressing how sad they felt for what was happening to the people of Haiti. Many of these people would donate whatever little cash they had to support Haiti.The women noted that a majority of the contributions came from taxi drivers and passengers in commercial vehicles while drivers of private vehicles mostly refused to support and threw out insulting words. The fundraising team also went into the local markets where they got a lot of support from the market women who willingly give L$10-20 each. Each woman in the market contacted said they could relate to having lost everything in a heartbeat during the civil war and knew what the mothers of Haiti were experiencing. On the third day of their fundraising activity, the women went to various offices of private companies, government ministries and agencies. At the end of the exercise, they were able to raise US$1,425 and L$62,000 (Liberian currency). The takeover of sorts of this activity by local organizations led by women is profound and admirable. It also reinforces a campaign championed earlier this year by many organizations calling for more localization of aid and the empowerment of local/national organizations as well as the recognition of women as capable First Responders in times of crisis and natural disasters.Naomi of CHI explained “When I saw what was happening in Haiti, my heart broke for the suffering and it reminded me of the various trials we have faced here in Liberia. I was pondering what we as Liberians could do to help, and just in that time, I saw an email from ActionAid-Liberia reaching out to its local implementing partners to contribute to funds being raised to support the people ofHaiti. Recognizing what my organization – CHI- had started doing to raise funds in Liberia to support our work during Ebola, I thought it would be a good strategy to use to support the cause for Haiti.”The initiative was led by women who currently run local charity organizations in Liberia. Many worked as First Responders during the Ebola Virus outbreak in areas ranging from community awareness on Ebola preventive measures, providing psychosocial counseling support, or ensuring that thousands of Liberian school children remained engaged academically during the compulsory closure of schools. Other Liberian women who heard about the work on social media also volunteered their time during the car wash fundraising drive to help support the effort. Mrs. Souriah Haider Dennis, a young mother and entrepreneur, said: “As a concerned Liberian, I saw this as an extremely important initiative and I immediately cleared my schedule to assist. This fundraising act of good will and kindness felt like the right thing to do. While it is true that our challenges as a nation seem to never end, it doesn’t mean we can’t help others in their time of need especially when they did the same for Liberia. The fundraising effort was a very fulfilling experience for me personally and I would like to extend my gratitude to the people of Liberia who contributed to this cause, especially the market women and commercial drivers. As a Liberian, it felt good to see the reaction of fellow Liberians when they were told about the devastation in Haiti as a result of the hurricane” For me, as a “young” Liberian woman who is personally committed to seeing positive changes in Liberia, this collective support from a cross range of Liberians – old, young, male, female, the haves and the have-nots – has warmed my heart and shown me that Liberians are caring people, and will continue to give to humanitarian causes. This is contrary to the common belief that Liberians do not give or care about what is happening globally. I am even more motivated and touched to see Liberian women stepping up and moving into unchartered territories proving that women can indeed be First Responders – that we can lead and show the efficacy of localization even in times of crisis.

5 things we learned from the Premier League

first_imgThe top five are now eight points clear of the chasing pack, with Manchester United, in seventh, looking increasingly unlikely to join the party after being held to a 2-2 draw by lowly Southampton.Here are five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend:– Liverpool show champion grit –Winning ugly is a tired cliche but Liverpool are showing the mindset of champions as they refuse to let Premier League pacesetters Manchester City out of their sight.Liverpool celebrate their late win against Everton at Anfield © AFP / Oli SCARFFJurgen Klopp’s side are not playing with the same free-flowing verve as they did last season but just look at the numbers.Liverpool pulled back to within two points of City with a 1-0 win against Everton after Divock Origi was in the right place to punish an astonishing error from England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.Liverpool have scored 16 goals fewer than City but have the meanest defence in the league — with just five goals conceded in 14 matches.– All Guns blazing –After the toxic atmosphere that characterised Arsenal home matches in the miserable final years of Arsene Wenger’s reign, it was hard to imagine the Emirates Stadium ever again becoming a raucous cauldron of emotion.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as Arsenal beat Tottenham 4-2 © AFP / Adrian DENNISGunners fans had become used to their team choking on the big occasion but in just a few short months Unai Emery has got the fans of the north London club back on their feet.A pulsating 4-2 win over arch-rivals Tottenham, which saw the Gunners recover from 2-1 down thanks to a second-half blitz, was a major statement of intent from Arsenal.– City tough it out –Bournemouth must hate the sight of Raheem Sterling after the England forward put champions Manchester City back into the lead with his eighth goal in six Premier League matches against the Cherries.Raheem Sterling celebrates his goal against Bournemouth © AFP / Oli SCARFFIlkay Gundogan added a third for a 3-1 victory in what looks on paper like a comfortable eighth successive home Premier League win this season but that hid the truth of a hard-earned win.Bournemouth made it an uncomfortable afternoon for City and Pep Guardiola was delighted his team were able to dig deep.“A good win, after the Champions League it is always tough,” said Guardiola. “People think it’s easy for us but that is not the truth so I like to win in this way.”– Rashford offers hope for Mourinho –Frustrated by Manchester United’s lack of killer instinct during their three-match winless run in the league, Jose Mourinho can take consolation from Marcus Rashford’s encouraging display in Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Southampton.Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford set up both of his side’s goals in the 2-2 draw at Southampton © AFP / Glyn KIRKTrailing 2-0 after a dismal opening at St Mary’s, United escaped an embarrassing defeat against Mark Hughes’s struggling side thanks to large part to Rashford’s contributions.The 21-year-old has scored only twice for his club this season but he showed his value to United lies in more than his goal tally as the England forward provided assists for Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera as Mourinho’s men drew level before half-time.“I have to say that I’m super happy with Marcus Rashford’s performance and he didn’t score a goal. So sometimes goals are not everything,” Mourinho said.– Kante earns good report –N’Golo Kante came in for some unexpected criticism from Maurizio Sarri after Chelsea were beaten 3-1 by Tottenham last week but he is back in his manager’s good books.Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante in action against Fulham © AFP / Glyn KIRKThe French World Cup winner set up Pedro’s opening goal in a 2-0 win against Fulham by winning the ball back in midfield.“I think he played very well,” said Sarri. “He defended very well. He needs to improve a little more tactically but that’s natural.“For the national team he usually plays with two midfielders. Last season sometimes with a two and sometimes with three, but in a central position, so it’s normal that he needs to improve.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang celebrates after scoring the opening goal for Arsenal against TottenhamLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 3 – Manchester City won their sixth Premier League match on the spin to underline their status as firm favourites but Liverpool clung on to their coat-tails after a dramatic late win against Everton.Elsewhere on a Premier League weekend dominated by derbies, Arsenal beat Tottenham 4-2 and Chelsea overcame Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham 2-0.last_img read more

New Durban port cranes an African first

first_img “We celebrate a milestone with the delivery of three mega cranes, the largest of their kind deployed at any container terminal in the southern hemisphere,” said Transnet Port Terminal’s acting chief executive, Pru Archary. “This acquisition will make Durban Container Terminal Pier 2 the first terminal in Africa to operate tandem lift ship-to-shore cranes, which reaffirms our commitment to delivering world-class port services in Africa.” 30 November 2012 South African port operator Transnet Port Terminals set a precedent in Africa when it took possession of three new tandem lift ship-to-shore cranes for the Durban Container Terminal that are the first of their kind on the continent. The equipment – purchased from Zhenhua Heavy Industries Co (ZPMC) in Shanghai, China – will revive the Durban terminal and result in improved efficiencies and reduced service times, the organisation said in a statement when the cranes arrived on 20 November. The cranes form part of a fleet of seven meant to boost equipment at the country’s flagship terminal; the remaining four will arrive early in 2013. A Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) team headed by general manager for capital projects, Logan Naidoo, has been working on the design standards of the cranes for the past 15 months.‘Designed to improve port’s longevity’ “These cranes have been designed to take us into the next 20 years of the port’s longevity and are capable of servicing the latest-generation container vessels with with a span of 24 containers across the deck,” Naidoo said. They will also be able to service the next generation of “megamax” vessels that will dock at the terminal’s North Quay once it is deepened, which is scheduled for the near future. “These cranes will ensure that the Durban Container Terminal is taken as a serious player in the global shipping fraternity and its arrival is a milestone in the delivery of Transnet’s market demand strategy,” TPT said. “TPT has R33-billion worth of capital projects planned over the next seven years, with a key focus on upgrading infrastructure at various terminals and replacing aged equipment,” Naidoo said. “The investment in the tandem lift ship-to-shore cranes, valued at R700-million, was prioritised as one of TPT’s top 10 capital projects under the market demand strategy.”center_img In addition to improving efficiency and productivity at the terminal, the acquisition will allow for job creation and opportunities for local engineering companies and graduates. “In line with Transnet’s tender policy, the recipient of every tender is required to produce a competitive supplier development plan (CSDP),” the company said. As such, ZPMC has selected local port equipment spares and maintenance company, Elgin Marine Services, as its CSDP partner. “Elgin Marine Services has employed and will mentor and develop 11 young newly graduated engineers from previously disadvantaged communities to whom skills will be transferred,” Transnet Port Terminals said.

Newspaper Wants Readers to Pay to Comment

first_imgTags:#news#web Earlier this year, the Sun Chronicle, a small Massachusetts-based newspaper, closed down comments on its website after discussions in the paper’s comment section got out of hand. Now, in order to “encourage intelligent and meaningful conversation,” all posters on the site will have to register with their full name, address, phone number, email and credit card number. Users will have to verify their identity by using their credit card to pay a one-time fee of $0.99 to activate their accounts. All comments will now include the full name and hometown of the commenter.For those of us who regularly frequent the comment sections of blogs and news sites, the revelation that anonymous comments don’t always lead to “intelligent and meaningful conversations” doesn’t come as a surprise. Some sites, including MetaFilter, already charge users a small fee to activate their accounts in order to ensure that commenters are committed to providing quality content (and to keep spammers away). MetaFilter, however, still allows users to remain anonymous.Earlier this week, Blizzard – the company behind the immensely popular World of Warcraft and Starcraft games – announced that it would require users of its forums to use their real names when posting to the company’s forums. This, according to Blizzard, will reduce “flame wars, trolling and other unpleasantness” on the forums. Does Anonymity Only Encourage “Ugly Speech?According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Eva Galperin, however, it’s wrong to assume that online anonymity only enables “ugly speech.” Instead, she argues, that “behind the veil of anonymity, individuals are more free to surface honest observations, unheard complaints, unpopular opinions.”What Do You Think?What do you think? Does the use of real names encourage better online discussions or does it keep users from really expressing their honest opinions? Let us know in the comments (where you can remain fully anonymous).

How Will Technology Disrupt the Enterprise in 2011?

first_imgCognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Tags:#Analysis#enterprise klint finley Related Posts Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo…center_img We just looked at some potentially disruptive technologies that fall outside the usual domain of the enterprise.In this post, we’ll look at some of the more near-term challenges facing the enterprise as seen by Constellation Research Group. In the first report from this newly formed consulting organization, co-founder R “Ray” Wang lists a set of five core disruptive technologies: social, mobile, cloud, analytics and unified communications. Together, these technologies could form a working definition of “enterprise 2.0.” I’d add next-generation network and storage technology to that list and perhaps swap analytics with “big data,” of which analytics is a subset, but these five serve as a good starting point.In Constellation’s Research Outlook For 2011, the consulting group’s analyst team identifies generating business value as the core issue for enterprises taking advantage of its five listed core enterprise 2.0 technologies. To this end, the report identifies three main challenges for decision makers.Assessing which disruptive technologies show promise for their organizations.Identifying how these technologies can be applied to generate business value.Finding ways to fund investments and cut the costs of legacy investments.Constellation’s analysts go on to make several predictions for 2011. We’ve broken most of them down by category.SocialSocial and collaborative technology will be noisy and confusing in 2011. Social technology will come from four camps: pure play enterprise social software vendors; ERP and CRM providers adding a social layer to existing products; networking and UC providers adding social networking to VOIP and online meeting offerings, and specialist HR and LMS vendors extending offerings to include collaboration.The social media landscape will undergo an interesting transformation as it ushers in a genre of information commerce and the 3 C’s of social content: creation, curation and consumption.Tools, networks and services that cater to the role of the curator will emerge. Examples in the consumer space include Storify,, Pearltrees and will realize that for social media to feel sexy there is a lot of work that needs to happen behind the scenes.MobileIT will support at least two or three mobile devices per person: smart phones, laptops and maybe tablets or other use-specific devices.Organizations will get serious about mobilizing apps and embrace the platforms to support mobility.Android will become more enterprise friendly by fixing major manageability issues.Cloud2011 will be the year when SaaS providers find the issue of security turning from a perceived weakness of their offerings to a perceived strength.Despite this, private clouds will prevail in 2011.See also: 14 Cloud Computing Predictions for 2011 from Chirag Mehta and R “Ray” Wang.AnalyticsSocial analytics will evolve from ad hoc experiments into refined information services.Unified CommunicationsLarge enterprises will stall on adoption of cloud for voice communications.BudgetsCorporate IT spending will barely keep up with dollar inflation.Technology refresh cycles will accelerate through 2011.Organizations will cautiously recommit to BPO and the distinction between BPO and ITO will blur.Organizations that reevaluate their IT strategies and contracts hand in hand will save the most money.Organizations held hostage by high and useless software maintenance contracts will lead a massive backlash.We’ve seen a lot of predictions for 2011 by this point.

Creativity Under Pressure: Micro-Budget Your Time

first_imgDon’t get stuck on inconsequentials!  Follow this trick for better time management.It’s easy for creative professionals to get lost in the minutia of their projects, tweaking and reworking to perfection.  Unfortunately though, time is money.  This perfectionist mindset may work for passion projects, but when there’s a paying client involved you need to keep a wider focus.  A broad view of a project’s needs encourages forward momentum – allowing you to get your job done well and on-time.  Follow this trick to keep you moving forward:Micro-Budget Your TimeIn most cases you aren’t blowing your time on one detail. It’s just that when combined, all of those little time drains result in a significant loss.  Are you spending too much time on the little things?  Work with self-imposed time constraints to be more efficient.Say, you’re a photographer.  You’ve got a shot that really needs some color work.  Give yourself a time budget to do it, “I’ve got 5 minutes to tweak this shot.”  Watch the clock.  By the end of 5 minutes you would likely have made positive changes to the image.  Now, it’s time to move on.Diminishing Returns Over TimeWithout imposing time constraints, 5 minutes can turn into 10, 20, or much longer.  The more time you spend tackling a detail, the less and less of an impact it has on the final result.  Apply these micro time budgets anytime you start something that you feel has the potential to drag on.Over time you’ll develop a better feel for for how long you should be budgeting for certain tasks based on how long they take you to complete and how important they are to the overall project.This method is applicable for any creative position – video editors, photographers, writers, graphic designers.  Allow yourself to come back to make minor adjustments at the end of the project…IF time allows.Time Management = Key To ProfitabilityYou don’t want to get to the end of budgeted hours and still have significant progress to make.   Either the client will have to pay for additional time (which they certainly do not want to do) or you have to accept any additional work put in as a profit loss.  Sharpen your time management skills.  It’s imperative for increasing your success and profitability.Got time management and productivity tips for success?Please share them in the comments!last_img read more

Steve Smith, James Faulkner star as Australia live to fight another day

first_imgPakistan were knocked out of the ICC World Twenty20 2016 after their 21-run defeat to Australia at the Punjab Cricket Association stadium.Here’s what the two captains had to say at the post-match presentation ceremony. Shahid Afridi says Pakistan are not good enough at the moment to compete with top sides. Honestly speaking, we are not good enough. Bowlers gave too many runs in last 4-5 overs. I’ll go back home and then make a decision [about retirement]. I’ll do what’s best for the team. I want to thank the management, the players who have supported me. I want to thank the people of Kolkata who gave us a lot of support. Also want to thank the people of Kashmir who came down for supporting us. And thank you to the BCCI for their hospitality as well: Shahid Afridi Winning skipper Steve Smith is aware of the big game on Sunday. Usman has been batting beautifully and Finch came in and looked good as well. We need to win the remaining three games if we want to win the World Cup. The game against India is in two days time. Probably, we’ll see some footage and stuff. But tomorrow, we’ll just rest: Smith Pakistan innings:The game between Australia and India on Sunday is the virtual quarter-final now. Australia and India are tied at four points each. Australia have a better net run-rate than India though.  Nothing went Pakistan’s way today. Usman Khawaja hurt them early in the match. Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell shared a 74-run partnership to make sure Australia total was too good in the end for Pakistan’s batting unit. Sharjeel, Latif and Akmal showed signs of regression for Pakistan but they weren’t able to ride on individual efforts. Another bad day for Pakistan and their skipper Afridi in the tournament. Let’s wait for what he has to say at the presentation ceremony today. advertisement18.20 IST: Two runs off the last ball. Pakistan’s campaign at this year’s ICC World Twenty20 comes to an end. Faulkner five-for makes sure Australia live to fight another day. Pakistan fell short of the target by 21 runs. PAK 172/8 25 from 2.. 18.16 IST: OUT! Another one, two in two for Faulkner. He now has taken five wickets in this innings. Brilliant effort from the all-rounder. He has ended Pakistan’s hopes here. Wahab Riaz was his latest victim. PAK 164/8 18.14 IST: OUT! Sarfraz Ahmed didn’t trouble the scorers much. A wicket off the first ball. Pakistan now need five sixes from now on. You never know what would happen after what we saw on Wednesday. PAK 164/7 18.13 IST: 14 from the 19th over. Malik gives Pakistan a slim chance after hitting two boundaries off the last two balls. Pakistan now need 30 from 6 balls. PAK 164/6 in 19 overs. 18.09 IST: No hat-trick there for Pakistan. Nevertheless, a brilliant 18th over from the Australian all-rounder, only five runs came off it. Malik is Pakistan’s only hope now. Sarfraz Khan has joined him. Pakistan need 44 from 12. Looks impossible. PAK 150/6 in 18 overs.18.08 IST: OUT! Two in two for Faulkner. He is on-a-hat-trick. Pakistan lose Imad Wasim for 0. It’s all going down for Pakistan. PAK 147/6 in 17.4 overs. 18.06 IST: OUT! Faulkner gets Latif for 46 off 41. Not a good time to lose a wicket, to lose an in-form batsman. Pakistan still need 47 runs from 15 balls. PAK 147/5 in 17.3 overs. 18.02 IST: Latif and Malik have stitched a 35-run partnership so far. However, they are not able to keep up to the asking rate. PAK 145/4 in 17 overs. They still need 49 runs from 18 balls.  17.58 IST: Malik and Latif are crucial to Pakistan’s chances here. Malik hit Zampa for a big six in the last over and is already on 13 off 7 balls. PAK 135/4 in 16 overs chasing 194.  17.54 IST: Pakistan are 125/4 in 15 overs. They need 69 from 30 which is looking a bit tall for their batting. However, Latif is in good form and Malik can come in handy in these situations.  Pakistan’s required run-rate is steadily climbing up. They are losing batsmen at regular intervals. They now need 80 runs at 13.33 an over.  Zampa has already two wickets. Shoaib Malik joins Latif now17.48 IST: OUT! Afridi dissapoints once again. After hitting leg-spinner Zampa for a six, he falls in the next ball. The skipper was able to manage only 14. PAK 110/4 in 13.2 overs. 17.41 IST: Four dot balls,  a single and a six. Glenn Maxwell completes a decent 12th over. Afridi hits the first six of his innings, smashes Maxwell to the long on boundary. PAK  94/3 in 12 overs.17.37 IST: Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi is the new man in. Will this be last game? Here’s what he had to say about his retirement earlier today   advertisement17.35 IST: OUT! Big wicket for Australia. The leg-spinner Zampa removes Umar Akmal for 32. The young man showed promise but plays a slog sweep only to see the ball crashing into the middle stump. Australia are celebrating big here. They know the importance of the wicket. PAK 85/3 in 10.3 overs. 17.33 IST: Umar Akmal and Khalid Latif have stitched a 43-run partnership from just 28 balls. This is good batting from these two right-handers. They are keeping Pakistan in the hunt. On this Mohali wicket, you need to give some time and then start playing your strokes and these two have exactly done that. PAK 83/2 in 10.1 overs 17.25 IST:  Adam Zampa bowls a decent first over, concedes just four runs and has put brakes to Pakistan’s scoring rate. Pakistan’s chances depend on how their batsmen handle the tricky leg-spinner. PAK 62/2 in 8 overs17.23 IST: Akmal doesn’t wait to hit the big shots. He has taken Watson to the cleaners with a six and two boundaries in the seventh over. Watson looked 17 off it. PAK 58/2 in 7 overs. 17.18 IST: Umar Akmal joins Latif in the middle  17.14 IST: Sharjeel Khan (30 off 19) fails to convert another start. He drags one off Faulkner and walks back the hut. Pakistan slip to 40/2 in 5.3 overs. That was a big, big wicket for Australia.  17.11 IST: Pakistan have lost Ahmed Shehzad inside the first five overs. Sharjeel Khan is keeping this chase interesting with 30 off 17 balls. He has hit five boundaries already. Sharjeel gave Pakistan a good start against New Zealand also. He is one Pakistan batsman to keep an eye on. PAK 36/1 in 5 overs. Australia innings: 16.31 IST: Wahab Riaz says the pitch will remain the same in the second innings and that their team has the firepower to gun down 193. It’s going to be a tough task for Pakistan though. Australian attack looks settled and leg-spinner Adam Zampa is a big threat to Pakistan’s chances today.  Pakistan need 194 to win. They need to score more than nine runs an over to be on the winning side today. 16.30 IST: Australia have ended with a massive 193/4 on board in 20 overs. Watson hit two more boundaries of Amir’s last over to hurt Pakistan more. He finishes with 44 from 21 balls while Smith was ice-cool and scored 61 from just 43 balls. These two stitched a crucial 74-run stand from 38 balls. Imad Wasim and Wahab Riaz picked up two wickets each for Australia. The bowling card doesn’t look impressive otherwise.    16.24 IST: Watson and Smith have scored at a rapid pace to push Australia towards a massive total here. These two have contributed 60 runs off just 32 balls. Serious power-hitting here. AUS 179 /4 in 19 overs. How much can they get from the next six balls?

Moreover, the pitch likely to remain the same for the entire match.Preview: Their path to the semifinals looking relatively easier in comparison, Australia will fancy their chances when they lock horns with a struggling Pakistan side whose hopes hangs by a thread.Pakistan have struggled so far in the tournament but Australia are in no mood to take them lightly in a must-win match for both teams. With two losses from three games, Pakistan’s chances of progressing in the tournament are slim. Even their coach Waqar Younis thinks the team doesn’t deserve to qualify for the semifinals with the way it has played.Australia, on the other hand, have their own issues to sort out after the loss to New Zealand and a not so convincing win against Bangladesh. A win for Australia will certainly end Pakistan’s sorry campaign in the tournament and make their final league match against hosts India a virtual quarterfinal with New Zealand already qualifying from the group.last_img read more

Special honour to become Manchester United manager: Jose Mourinho

first_imgManchester United have appointed Jose Mourinho as manager on athree-year contract with an option to stay on until at least 2020, the PremierLeague club said on Friday.The 53-year-old Portuguese replaces Dutchman Louis van Gaalwhose two-year reign at Old Trafford ended on Monday when he was sacked twodays after United won the FA Cup.’JOSE IS THE BEST'”Jose is quite simply the best manager in the game today.He has won trophies and inspired players in countries across Europe and, ofcourse, he knows the Premier League very well, having won three titles here,”United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said in a statement.”I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome him toManchester United. His track record of success is ideal to take the clubforward.”Mourinho, sacked by Chelsea in December, had been widelyexpected to succeed Van Gaal and his agent Jorge Mendes met United officials onTuesday to discuss personal terms.The talks with the former Porto, Inter Milan and Real Madridmanager became protracted, however, when it emerged that Chelsea, who sackedMourinho in December, still owned his name as a trademark.Now the stage is set for the marriage of two of world soccer’sbiggest names – Mourinho, the manager who collects trophies wherever he goes,and Manchester United, England’s most successful club and a global giant.’SPECIAL HONOUR FOR ME’ “To become Manchester United manager is a special honour inthe game,” Mourinho said in the statement.”It is a club known and admired throughout the world. Thereis a mystique and a romance about it which no other club can match.advertisement”I have always felt an affinity with Old Trafford; it hashosted some important memories for me in my career and I have always enjoyed arapport with the United fans.”I’m looking forward to being their manager and enjoyingtheir magnificent support in the coming years.”JOSE’S GLORIOUS PASTIn two spells at Chelsea, the Portuguese won the Premier Leaguethree times – including their first league title for 50 years – and both the FACup and League Cup.He also won league championships in his first seasons at Portoand Inter Milan before helping Real Madrid to their first La Liga crown in fouryears.By their own high standards, United have struggled since AlexFerguson retired three years ago, never finishing higher than fourth in theEnglish standings.Their fifth-place finish under Van Gaal this season meant theyfailed to qualify for the Champions League for the second time since Fergusonleft.LONE SILVERWARE FOR VAN GAALVan Gaal did win the FA Cup – the first time United had liftedthe trophy in 12 years – but due to widespread condemnation of the style offootball his team played it was not enough to save him.There are reservations about Mourinho’s preferred style of play,with former United striker Eric Cantona saying the club should have optedinstead for Pep Guardiola, who is taking over as manager of Manchester City.But other former players, including goalkeeper Peter Schmeicheland former captain Steve Bruce, believe he will revive the club’s fortunes.Mourinho, who has won the Champions League with Porto and InterMilan, will lead United in the Europa League next season.last_img read more

Tuchel: Verratti is one of world’s best

first_imgThomas Tuchel believes Marco Verratti is among the best players in the world and can help the Paris Saint-Germain fans fall in love with his team.PSG have made a flying start to the new season, winning their first eight Ligue 1 matches and recovering from a Champions League defeat to Liverpool by thrashing Red Star Belgrade 6-1.Italy international Verratti stood out in the triumph over Red Star and coach Tuchel picked out the midfielder as a key player in his bid to create a team that appeals to supporters.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! “For me, it’s not a surprise [how Verratti plays],” Tuchel told a pre-match news conference ahead of facing Lyon. “Marco is very important, he is an extraordinary player.”He is one of the best players in the world. He finds solutions in closed situations, in very tight spaces. He is very confident and he works like crazy when we lose the ball.”It’s very good for us, to influence all the others, and also the fans. I want our fans to fall in love with the team – we have the best players in the world. It’s very important for us.” Tuchel was speaking in advance of his side looking to make it nine wins out of nine in Ligue 1 and extend the eight-point gap to Lille in second place, with the team buoyed by the revivial of their European campaign after a limp defeat at Anfield in September. Lyon opened their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 win away at Manchester City.”It is a tough match against a top-quality team,” he said. “OL are better against bigger sides, as we saw against both Marseille and Manchester City – we saw their true ability both times. Lyon feel freer when they are not considered favourites.”last_img read more

Bayern Completes Arsenal’s Euro Misery with Another 5-1 Win

first_imgBayern’s Thiago Alcantara, right, is challenged by Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka during the Champions League round of 16 second leg soccer match between Arsenal and Bayern Munich. (AP Photo/Frank Augstein)And there was no sympathy from Bayern, with the five-time European champions joining in the derision by tweeting: “What time is it? Yep, it’s ten to!”The night’s other game saw the first-leg score replicated as Real Madrid beat Napoli 3-1 to reach the last eight for a seventh successive season.But Bayern enjoyed such an emphatic advantage that Arsenal had an uphill task. A glimmer of hope, though, came in the 20th minute when Theo Walcott beat goalkeeper Manuel Neuer at his near post.Nothing went Arsenal’s way after that. Walcott was denied a potential penalty and then Koscielny was dismissed after the referee initially prepared to show the captain a yellow card for bringing down Robert Lewandowski 10 minutes into the second half.“The game was difficult until the penalty,” said Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti, who is looking to win the Champions League with a third different club after successes with AC Milan and Real Madrid. “We were too open. They pushed as we expected. We were not so clear with the ball as we usually are.”Arsenal didn’t do itself any favors, going into freefall as Bayern tore Wenger’s side apart with a clinical attacking masterclass. Arjen Robben netted after a poor clearance by goalkeeper David Ospina in the 68th minute, and Douglas Costa added another in the 78th before Arturo Vidal scored twice in the space of five minutes.Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski, second right, celebrates with teammates after scoring a penalty during the Champions League round of 16 second leg soccer match between Arsenal and Bayern Munich at the Emirates Stadium in London, Tuesday, March 7, 2017. (AP Photo/Frank Augstein)“Bayern can be a good side but tonight they can also say thank you to the decisions of the referee,” Wenger said. “It leaves me very angry, very frustrated … (the referee) killed the game.”As Bayern marched into the quarterfinals for the sixth consecutive year, Arsenal cannot be certain it will even be back in the competition next season. Not only are the Gunners far from winning the Premier League for the first time since 2004 but they are out of the top four.The objectives are clearer for Bayern: collecting a fifth successive Bundesliga title and winning the Champions League for the first time since its Wembley success in London in 2013.“We just want to keep chugging along,” Neuer said. “We don’t intend on letting up.”TweetPinShare0 Shares LONDON – With a second 5-1 rout in three weeks, Bayern Munich completed Arsenal’s humiliation on a night of protests against manager Arsene Wenger.Whether Wenger gets a chance to return to the Champions League next season remains unclear, as his latest contract will expire at the end of this season after 21 years at the club.His team’s heaviest-ever loss at the Emirates Stadium, completing a 10-2 aggregate loss on Tuesday as the German champions reached the quarterfinals, will only heighten demands by pockets of supporters for Wenger to go.Asked if he will manage Arsenal again in the Champions League, Wenger replied: “I don’t know … I am here to talk about football not my future.”It is Wenger’s failure to deliver Arsenal’s first European Cup that has diminished his standing among fans who once lauded him as a coaching revolutionary.For the seventh consecutive season, Arsenal has exited the Champions League in the Round of 16 and it has still only reached the final once, back in 2006.Wenger deflected questions about his own future by reprimanding Tuesday’s referee for what the Frenchman called “unexplainable and scandalous” decisions.last_img read more

England Rises Again, Greece and Belgium Slumps in Nations League Drama

first_imgGENEVA (AP) — England surged into the UEFA Nations League finals tournament on Sunday, and Belgium threw away its place in a stunning 5-2 loss at Switzerland.On a day of come-from-behind wins and twisting fortunes for the World Cup’s beaten semifinalists, England edged Croatia 2-1 to avenge defeat when the teams met in Russia in July.England had to beat Croatia to advance over group leader Spain and trailed late, before Jesse Lingard leveled in the 78th and captain Harry Kane got the decisive goal in the 85th.Belgium, which finished third in Russia, seemed certain to join England and host Portugal in the inaugural Final Four of world soccer’s newest tournament in June.The top-ranked team still needs a trophy to back up its status and eased into a quick 2-0 lead against Switzerland.Needing to score at least four to advance, the Swiss got three by halftime and added two more later to shock the Belgians.“Too many individual errors. I have no words,” Belgium defender Toby Alderweireld said.England’s Harry Kane, center, celebrates after scoring his side’s second goal during the UEFA Nations League soccer match between England and Croatia at Wembley stadium in London, Sunday Nov. 18, 2018. (AP Photo/Rui Vieira)The group was settled on a head-to-head tiebreaker with both teams on nine points. Switzerland’s three-goal margin outweighed Belgium’s 2-1 win in Brussels last month.Sunday’s dramatic games between top 10-ranked teams added to the strong impression made by the first Nations League.UEFA created the competition — amid some skepticism given the busy soccer calendar — to replace mostly meaningless and unpopular international friendly games.It gives unheralded national teams in the lower tiers a route to qualify for the European Championship through a subsequent playoff round.At the top, the best national teams get guaranteed games against each other and fight for a trophy in the odd-numbered years between World Cups and Euros.Portugal, England and Switzerland will be joined in the Final Four by either France or the Netherlands. The Dutch will advance if they get at least a draw on Monday in Germany, which has already been relegated to the second tier.The Nations League Final Four draw takes place Dec. 3 in Dublin.BELGIUM COLLAPSEBeaten by France in the World Cup semifinals, Belgium won the third-place game against England in Russia and made a smooth start to the Nations League.Many thought an overdue trophy could come next year for the so-called golden generation led by Eden Hazard, though missing the injured Kevin De Bruyne on Sunday.Not now.Thorgan Hazard scored after 66 seconds and 17 minutes in Lucerne but, by halftime, Ricardo Rodriguez scored a penalty and forward Haris Seferovic struck twice to bring the Swiss within one goal of advancing. They got two more, both from headers gifted by poor Belgian marking.Defender Nico Elvedi scored to make up for a bad mistake gifting Hazard his early opener, and Seferovic clinched his first international hat trick in the 84th, winning over home fans who are often criticizing him.ENGLAND RISINGEngland started a tough three-team group with a home loss against Spain, and trailed again at Wembley Stadium on Sunday when Andrej Kramaric scored in the 57th. That result would have been enough for Croatia to advance, despite its opening 6-0 rout by Spain in September.Things can change fast in the rapid-fire Nations League groups, and England scored twice late on to win the group and condemn Croatia to relegation into the second tier.“I’ve never seen (Wembley) like this in an England shirt,” said Kane, captain of an England team riding a wave of acclaim and affection at home under coach Gareth Southgate.BELARUS ADVANCESIn League D, Belarus sealed winning Group 2 with a sixth straight shutout in a 2-0 win at San Marino, making Luxembourg’s 1-1 draw at Moldova immaterial.Belarus joins Georgia in being promoted to League C in two years’ time, and taking their places in the League D playoffs in March 2020.Those playoffs featuring the four fourth-tier group winners will send one of Europe’s lowest-ranked teams to the 2020 European Championship tournament.The other two playoff entries are decided Monday and Tuesday, with Macedonia and Kosovo currently leading their groups.In other games Sunday, Austria won 2-1 at Northern Ireland in a League B group already won by Bosnia-Herzegovina.In a League C group, Finland had already won promotion and Estonia was already relegated before the final round of games Sunday ended with Hungary beating Finland 2-0, and Greece losing 1-0 at home to Estonia.___By GRAHAM DUNBAR , AP Sports WriterAssociated Press writer Raf Casert in Brussels contributed to this reportTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Nouvelles recommandations relatives aux doses du vaccin contre la grippe H1N1 pour

first_imgLes enfants âgés de six mois à neuf ans qui ont déjà reçu une dose du vaccin contre la grippe H1N1 n’ont pas besoin d’une deuxième dose pendant la saison grippale 2009-2010. La nouvelle recommandation provient du Groupe de travail national sur les vaccins pandémiques. « L’annonce est basée sur le faible taux d’activité grippale H1N1 à l’échelle du pays et sur l’attente que l’activité n’augmentera pas au printemps, a dit le Dr Robert Strang, médecin-hygiéniste en chef de la Nouvelle-Écosse. Toutefois, j’encourage toujours les gens qui n’ont pas encore reçu le vaccin contre la grippe H1N1 à se faire vacciner. » Le vaccin contre la grippe H1N1 peut encore être administré aux enfants au besoin, mais seule une dose est nécessaire. Cette directive inclut tous les enfants âgés de six mois à neuf ans, peu importe leurs antécédents médicaux. L’activité grippale H1N1 demeure faible en Nouvelle-Écosse. Seuls deux cas ont été confirmés en laboratoire depuis le début de l’année 2010. Au cours de la saison grippale 2009-2010, un total de 752 cas de grippe H1N1 ont été confirmés en laboratoire.

Father of Humboldt Bronco player got apology in tearful meeting with truck

first_imgMELFORT, Sask. — The father of a player killed in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash says he thinks meeting face-to-face with the truck driver who caused the collision was a powerful moment in both of their lives.Scott Thomas, whose son Evan died in the April 6 crash, said both he and Jakirat Singh Sidhu cried when the two met privately at Sidhu’s sentencing hearing this week.  “It was a very powerful, very emotional 15 minutes,” said Thomas. “There were lots of tears on both our parts.“He said exactly what he said in court … ‘I’m sorry, I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry.’”Thomas was sitting in court in Melfort, Sask., Wednesday when Sidhu’s brother tapped him on the knee and asked if Thomas would meet with their family after the hearing ended for the day.“We went into a small room in the back,” Thomas told The Canadian Press in an interview Thursday.Thomas had frequently said he would like to meet with the truck driver.He said Sidhu asked him how he could make it right for his family.“I said, ‘So far, you’ve done everything that’s in your power,’” Thomas recalled. “He pled guilty, he took away the possibility of a long, drawn-out trial. He ended the proceedings in a pretty short and quick and efficient manner and definitely saved our families a lot of grief going forward.“In his words, he can’t do anything to make it better, but he can stop proceedings that make it worse. That’s what he did. He’s already taken steps in that direction.”Thomas said he accepted Sidhu’s apology.“Absolutely,” said Thomas. “It was a powerful moment in both of our lives, I think. It’s what I had asked for.”Ninety victim impact statements were submitted from family members over three days. They cried as they spoke of their unending grief for those who died and their frustration for those forever scarred. Some said they can forgive Sidhu, while others said they are too angry.Crown prosecutor Thomas Healey told court that he admired the ability to forgive, but that actions must have consequences. He said that while there has been no case like it before in Canada, a sentence of 10 years with a 10-year driving prohibition would be appropriate.The defence made no specific sentence recommendation but cited other dangerous driving penalties stretching from 1 1/2 to 4 1/2 years behind bars.Thomas said he wouldn’t want to be in the judge’s position of having to determine Sidhu’s sentence.“There’s definitely some parts of our conversation I am still not talking about, but the range of human tragedy in this is unbelievable,” said Thomas. “Any time I think I can’t get any deeper into this, something happens to continually break my heart.”Sitting through the victim impact statements was sometimes harder than the days after the crash, he said.“A couple of Mr. Sidhu’s family members were in the meeting with us and you could see the pain in their faces. So many families on so many levels.“From the 29 people on the bus to the billet families to the first responders who were there. There’s thousands and thousands of people who were impacted by this and every one of them has a unique story. It’s unbelievable.”Thomas said his strongest feelings in the case are reserved for a system that allowed Sidhu on the road with little experience and even less training.“If I harbour long lasting hard feelings toward anybody it’s toward the company that employed him … the trucking industry that allowed this to happen and the governments that allowed a man like him to be behind the wheel,” Thomas said. “I have a horrible feeling there are hundreds of others who are trained just as poorly out on the road right now. He thought he was just doing his job.”Provincial court Judge Inez Cardinal said she will hand down her sentence March 22.“However this happens, there’s no winners here,” said Thomas.“There’s going to be losers. No matter how that decision comes down, a whole bunch more people are going to lose.”— By Colette Derworiz in Edmonton.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Will Ferrell To Host Massive Charity Desert Showdown

first_imgWill Ferrell is ready to bring the heat to the Desert Showdown, heading to the desert to commemorate the greatest (and most competitive!) 10th Anniversary of charity tennis and golf yet!Hosted by Will Ferrell, and held at the world famous La Quinta Resort & Club, the event has expanded to two days this year to include “The Will Powered Golf Classic”, a golf tournament unlike any other, exclusive post-round cocktail reception and celebrity entertainment.Leading into the neighboring BNP Paribas Open, the two-day event will benefit Cancer For College, a 501c3, non-profit organization that provides college scholarships for cancer survivors. Since 1993, the charity has granted nearly $2 million to more than 1,000 cancer survivors.To kick off the event on Monday, March 3, 2014, “The 21st Annual Will Powered Golf Classic” will take place on at the renowned Bighorn Golf Club in Palm Desert, CA. The tournament will be played in a shamble format with planned ceremonial tee off at 12 noon featuring Ferrell and Cancer for College Founder Craig Pollard. Following the golf, there will be a private evening reception with hosted bar and hors d’oeuvres at the gorgeous Big Horn Golf Club pool area adjacent to the clubhouse.March 4th, 2014, marks Day 2 and the 10th Anniversary of the Desert Smash, and tennis portion of the Showdown. The day kicks off with The Desert Smash Pro/Celebrity-Am Tennis Tournament, where donating amateurs pay to play with celebrity players and WTA/ATP Tour Pros. Following the Pro/Celebrity-Am Tournament, the fan favorite, Pro-Tennis Exhibition will kick off at 2:15pm on La Quinta’s intimate Stadium Court. This sell-out event, is notorious for bringing together some of the world’s best professional tennis players with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars for fun, entertaining tennis in addition to several exciting live auction items auctioned off with the help of the players.Early players scheduled to appear at this year’s exhibition include: loyal Desert Smasher’s ATP World No. 2 Novak Djokovic, and 2013 Australian Open Doubles Champions and ATP World No. 1 Doubles Team Bob & Mike Bryan. Star players that have participated in the past include: WTA World No. 10 Caroline Wozniacki, Andre Agassi, Stefanie Graf, Marat Safin, Victoria Azarenka and Mardy Fish. Last year’s big celebrity battle with Novak Djokovic & Jeremy Piven vs. RedFoo and Mardy Fish was an entertaining, fun match that the crowd loved!Ferrell’s reasoning for his involvement in the Smash: “Cancer for College is an amazing cause. To see these cancer survivors realize their dream of a college education is inspiring. You know what else is inspiring? Me embarrassing Kevin Spacey on a tennis court in front of a thousand people. Those Academy Awards aren’t going to help him one bit when I’m raining fire on him from the baseline. It’s going to be a sight to behold. If an exhibition of pure athletic prowess does not make you want to give to this great cause, I don’t know what will.”Kevin Spacey will definitely be bringing the heat to the desert, having been training for months with premier coaches for his Pro/Celeb match against Ferrell. He sounds off taunting, “Will, I have long admired you, as I hope you know; but there will be no mercy in Palm Springs. I have taken this assignment like the greatest method actor who ever walked the face of the boards of the most inspired playhouse of all time… Za Actor’s Studio (and not just Inside but Outside too!) I’m ready, excited and very, very pumped to head out on the court and KILL YOU AT THE NET!!!!!”The Desert Smash Celebrity/Pro-Am Tournament is arguably one of the country’s best, composed of currently ranked WTA and ATP Tour players and some of the best known celebrity players. Past participants include: Stan Wawrinka, Ivan Ljubicic, Dinara Safina, Ernests Gulbis, Daniela Hantuchova, Paul Henri Mathieu, Xavier Malisse, James Blake, Jack Sock and Grand Slam Champion Svetlana Kuznetsova.Each year, the Desert Smash attracts both celebrity and tennis fans who flock to La Quinta to rub elbows with the world’s best tennis players. Celebrities scheduled to appear this year include event host and “Anchorman” star Will Ferrell, two-time Oscar winner and current House of Cards star Kevin Spacey, Kaley Cuoco (Big Bang Theory), Justin Chambers (Grey’s Anatomy), Kevin McKidd (Grey’s Anatomy, Brave), Timothy Olyphant (Justified, Live Free or Die Hard), RedFoo (LMFAO), Jeremy Piven (Entourage, Old School), Lance Bass and Boris Kodjoe.Past celebrity attendees included: Michael B. Jordan, Christian Slater, Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani, Ryan Kwanten, Joe Pesci, Justin Chambers, Timothy Olyphant, Boris Kodjoe, Michael Vartan, Lance Bass, Joanna Garcia, Eliza Dushku, Jennifer Morrison, and Kirk Fox.Capping off an epic two days of fundraising and tennis, the celebration will continue into the night with the 10th Anniversary Desert Smash Player Party, which will give supporters and attendees the chance to rub elbows with both Hollywood celebrities and tennis stars while supporting Cancer for College through an exciting live auction all the while enjoying cocktails, a fun selection of food and a live musical performance by Nelly and Boyz II Men.Ferrell notes: “This event is going to be huge. I believe, between the golf and tennis alone, we’re expecting over 12 million people at the Desert Showdown this year. It might be a record for attendance. It’s gonna make Coachella look like a pancake breakfast. Look, I’m not going to sugarcoat it. It’s going to be a lot of work, but there’s nothing easy about cancer. It can devastate a family physically, emotionally and financially. It’s what makes Cancer for College so important. They make a college education a reality for these survivors who have been through so much. Helping these families after all they have been through is the absolute least we can do.”Find out more about the events here.last_img read more

TMC heavyweights go on campaign trail across state

first_imgKolkata: Trinamool Congress candidates across the state hit the campaign trail on Sunday, with party leaders Subrata Mukherjee, Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Mala Roy, Mamata Bala Thakur and Moon Moon Sen among others seen interacting with voters of their respective constituencies.Mala Roy, who is contesting from the Kolkata South seat, started her campaign near the Tollygunge railway station, accompanied by state Public Works Department (PWD) minister and Tollygunge MLA Aroop Biswas.

A boost to Sanders

first_imgChicago Mayor-elect Lori Lightfoot’s overwhelming victory was a message by the city’s voters Tuesday that they want an overhaul and makeover of City Hall and that they want to trash the entrenched political machine that has ruled the city for so long. The nation’s third largest city is now the largest American city ever to elect a black woman mayor. Lightfoot, a former federal prosecutor, never held elective office until now. She won the election by besting Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle who, herself, served many years on the City Council. More than any candidate in recent times, Lightfoot racked up support in every single section of the city. She won in each of the city’s 50 wards. She had the support of Revolution Now, the progressive group founded by supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders. She will be sworn in on May 20 and on that day joins a group of seven other black women serving as mayors in large U.S. cities including Atlanta and New Orleans. After Jane Byrne, she becomes the second woman to serve as mayor of Chicago. Lightfoot and Preckwinkle, also an African American, say they are working to heal some of the differences between them and some of the divisions in the progressive community which saw unions and other organisations divided in whom they supported. Preckwinkle was perceived by many voters as having too close a connection to the old political machine and Lightfoot was criticised for not being strong enough in her prosecution of police misconduct. The other historical aspect of the elections is that avowed socialists won four additional seats on the City Council by the time polls closed. Many of the socialist aldermen are women of colour. Three aldermanic hopefuls backed by the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America won seats in the runoffs. In the 20th Ward Jeanette Taylor, with 60 per cent of the vote, grabbed the seat held by indicted Willie Cochran. In the 25th Ward, Byron Sigcho-Lopez, with 54 per cent of the vote, took the seat long held by Danny Solis. Solis was the powerful chair of the city’s Zoning Commission. In the 40th Ward, Andre Vasquez defeated the nine-term incumbent Pat O’Connor with 54 per cent of the vote. A fourth Democratic Socialists of America candidate, Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez, was leading by 64 votes with all precincts reporting. The winner will be determined when all the absentee ballots are counted and a recount is conducted. All of the new socialist aldermen will join Carlos-Ramirez-Rosa, a socialist incumbent in the 35th ward and newcomer Daniel LaSpata, another socialist incumbent. Both of them had won in the first-round elections in February. The results mean that in a 50-seat city council at least 10 per cent are members of the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America. “As democratic socialists, we’re ready to build a Chicago for all of us, not just a wealthy few,” said Lucie Macias, one of two Chicago DSA co-chairs. “Our Chicago for All platform is based on three main planks: housing for all, sanctuary for all, and education for all. We’re excited to build a socialist caucus in city hall to carry out this agenda and fight for Chicago’s working class.” The Chicago victories in the aldermanic races reflect a national trend of victories by DSA candidates. The most well-known, of course, was the victory in New York of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. DSA has already endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders for president. Sanders carried the 1st, 25th, 33rd, 35th, and 40th wards in the 2016 Democratic primary in Chicago.(Courtesy: People’s World Views expressed are strictly personal)last_img read more

Swagatalakshmi pays her tribute to Tagore

first_imgAs a gift to lovers of Rabindra sangeet, Swagatalakshmi Dasgupta – a noted Randindra Sangeet exponent – will be presenting a solo programme at Rabindra Sadan, on May 2 (the eve of Kabipaksha).The programme will start with the last song composed by Rabindra Nath and end with the poet’s first song ‘Nirab Rajani Dekho’. Also at the event, Bhavna Cassettes and Records will bring out an experimental CD titled ‘Ogo Bideshini’ by Dasgupta. Tagore had come in contact with Western music from his early life. That is why, in many of his compositions, the influence of Western music is evident. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainTherefore, the CD will have the singer’s compilation of original Western songs and the songs composed by Tagore. The compilation will also have some English, Scottish and Irish original songs, from which Tagore has taken the tunes and later composed his songs. Some of these songs are ‘Drink to me’, ‘Auld lang sune’, ‘Nancy lee’, ‘British Grenadiers’, ‘In good King Charles’, to name a few. The Bengal compositions include ‘Kotobaro bhebechinu’, ‘Purano sei diner kotha’, ‘Kali kali bolore aj’, ‘O dekhbi re bhai’, ‘Sokoli Phuralo’, etc. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardSwagatalakshmi got her initial training from her father Pabitra Dasgupta, who used to sing various types of songs when she was a kid. And, even her mother Subrata was a student of great Rabindrasangeet exponent Debabrata Biswas. After her mother’s demise, Swagatalakshmi translated 53 of Tagore songs which were later published in a book titled ‘Galaxy’. The singer also had the honour to sing in Parliament in 1995 and took part in functions all over the globe. Dasgupta was the playback singer in Rituporno Ghosh’s Chokher Bali. She got an award for singing ‘Eki labonye purno pran’ in the playback in a film directed by Gautam Ghosh. During her career, she came in contact with stalwarts like Kanika Bandyopadhyay, Supriyo Thakur, Suchitra Mitra, William Radice, Amartya Sen, among others. Dasgupta has given music to 75 songs from ‘Gitabitan’ which have not been given the musical form.last_img read more

Mexico declares renegotiated gas pipeline contracts will save billions

CALGARY — Mexico’s president says his government has reached a deal with private natural gas pipeline operators to solve a dispute over fees and payments.The pipelines would allow Mexico to import U.S. natural gas and distribute gas throughout Mexico. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said the private companies, one of which is believed to be Calgary-based TC Energy Corp., had taken advantage of the country when the contracts were signed under previous administrations.Lopez Obrador said Tuesday that companies from the U.S., Canada and Mexico had agreed to restructure fees. He said the companies accepted about a 30 per cent lower profit margin.The president said the deal would save Mexico — especially the national electricity utility — as much as $4.5 billion over the next three decades.In its recent second-quarter financial report, TC Energy said its Mexican state power utility customer had filed in June for arbitration on contracts for three of its natural gas pipelines, seeking nullification of clauses related to force majeure and reimbursement of fixed capacity payments.It said it had completed construction and commissioning for its Sur de Texas gas import pipeline but had not yet been allowed by the regulator or customer to begin service. Meanwhile, construction was continuing despite delays on its Villa de Reyes project to be completed later this year and its Tula project, where the targeted completion date has been pushed back to the end of 2021.“In our view, the contracts were properly established in accordance with all original bid and regulatory requirements and remain valid and enforceable,” TC reported. “We will defend them as necessary through the arbitration proceedings.” Companies in this story: (TSX:TRP).The Canadian Press read more

Debate Room Its only fair that Catholic children are prioritised in Catholic

first_img Jan 23rd 2017, 7:30 PM Caitriona O’Neill and William Gallagher Short URL Share409 Tweet Email2 Monday 23 Jan 2017, 7:30 PM 144 Comments By Caitriona O’Neill and William Gallagher 2,379 Views In a speech at a seminar organised by Equate, a campaign group in this area, Minister Bruton said that he believes that it is unfair that preference is given by publicly-funded religious schools to children of their own religion who might live some distance away, ahead of children of a different religion or of no religion who live close to the school.However, some people claim that faith schools must be permitted to carry out their purpose, and and that is to serve children and parents who share the faith of the school. Is it fair to prioritise Catholic children in Catholic schools when they are publicly-funded? We asked two commentators to debate.YES. The Minister for Education, Richard Bruton, has initiated a consultation on schools’ admissions policies which has ignited a great deal of, not always well informed, debate.There are, therefore, a few points I would like to clarify. Firstly a Baptism Certificate is not needed for admission to a Catholic school. For well over 95% of Catholic primary schools, everyone who applies is admitted. I joked recently that if Damien from The Omen turned up to one of our schools and we had space, we would take him. But it was to make a very serious point. No Catholic primary schools want to refuse any child for any reason.Between 3 and 6% of Catholic primary schools are oversubscribedThere are more applications than places, and in these schools we do prioritise Catholic children. This issue is mainly confined to the greater Dublin area and to the commuter belt (though it can flare up elsewhere).In Dublin our research indicates that 1.2% of applications that did not result in an enrolment in the current school year relate to baptism. We believe there is a growing problem of oversubscription in certain areas in Dublin and would urge Government action to address this as a matter of urgency, through the provision of new schools or the funding of enlargements of existing schools.Right of minority faiths to priorities pupils of their faithIn areas where there is a choice of schools and schools are oversubscribed, we feel it is only fair that Catholic children from that area are given priority access to schools under Catholic patronage. These schools exist to provide Catholic parents with the opportunity for their children to receive an education in line with the parents’ wishes and beliefs.We are also deeply concerned about the right of minority faiths to prioritise pupils of their faith attending their schools. Faith schools are at the heart of many minority faith communities and are absolutely critical to their sustainability.There is a real danger that measures designed to hit a Catholic target end up harming an innocent bystander: small local faith schools. This would be deeply unjust.Seamus Mulconry is General Secretary of the Catholic Primary Schools Management Association. Debate Room: ‘It’s only fair that Catholic children are prioritised in Catholic schools’ Minister for Education, Richard Bruton, plans to legislate on the controversial school admissions system soon. But what about the right of minority faiths to prioritise pupils of their faith? Source: RollingNews.ieNO. I didn’t bow to the whole “baptising your child to get them into school” nonsense and here’s why.First of all, I didn’t get a choice as to what religion, if any, I wanted to be born into. So my children can make up their own minds about these kind of things. Secondly, when I think religion, education doesn’t suddenly spring to mind, but ignorance does. And how I wasted a good chunk of my precious life on bended knee, praying idly, while the church perfected inequality and hypocrisy.Five years ago (when my first child was born) education equality was finally being tackled by Ruairi Quinn, so the idea of a “baptism barrier” still being in place by the time my child started school seemed inconceivable.Same old battle, different gatesYet here we are today. And the church does not want to let go of their grip, as we found out when we went to enroll our child in the local Catholic primary school, a literal stone’s throw from our house.Despite not having a Baptismal Cert the interview started off very “inclusively.” But as the enrolment meeting progressed, it soon became clear that the “baptism barrier” was just one big smokescreen for a wholly bigger issue. Indoctrination.Of course our child was welcome to attend the school, but there were clear conditions which were non-negotiable.Children of other religious faiths and none must sit in the crying room of the church during rehearsals for Communion and Confirmation.Children of other religious faiths and none must do so unsupervised as their teacher will be at the altar preparing the other religious kids.Children of other religious faiths can “opt” out of religion class, albeit sit in the same classroom where religious instruction is taking place. I said to the principal that I can’t accept my child receiving mixed messages about virgins and birth which contradicts biology and evidence-based facts of life.During religion class children of other religious faiths and none can do their homework, or are encouraged to get more “involved”  by helping with the preparation for Communion, by colouring in some “Jesus Loves You” banner.I offered (as a registered member of the Irish Teacher’s Council) to supervise my child and other children during religion class, as that would solve the school’s lack of teaching resources for class separation. I was flatly rejected.Why the “baptism barrier” won’t washMinister Bruton, what you mean when you state: “Within this approach, there is capacity to allow religious schools to require parents or students to indicate some support or respect for the ethos of the school” is what is translated to the above experience.This is my own lived and discriminating experience of trying to access equal education for my child in a publicly-funded school that promotes exclusion, segregation, ignorance, noncooperation and apathy.Grace Vaughan is a wholly irreverent mother and writer who lives in Co Meath with current husband.Catholic group says 95% of their schools don’t have a baptism barrier>“It’s not something that should be up for vote” – can the problem with religion in Irish schools be solved?>What do you think? Is it fair that Catholic children are prioritised in publicly-funded Catholic schools? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

as an anti-Kerala move The Sabarimala issue came at a time when the saffron party was finding it difficult to counter the state government and the ruling front’s charge that the obstructions mounted by the Narendra Modi government to its overseas fund mobilisation drive were a part of political vendetta towards the state and an affront to people reeling under the calamity Amit Shah in Kannur on Saturday Twitter/@AmitShah The BJP state unit was initially reluctant to launch an agitation against the Supreme Court verdict as such a stance was at variance with the stand most parties took at the national level in favour of gender equality In the beginning the party extended its support to the protesters However the party joined the protests after it saw thousands of devotees especially women coming out openly against the Supreme Court verdict The party took charge of the protests after they spread throughout the state evoking support from most sections of the Hindu believers The saffron party’s job was made easy by the LDF government which tried to implement the verdict without consulting the stakeholders The attempt made by the police to take a few women activists within the banned age group to the temple with heavy protection further angered the devotees The police action also provoked the thantri and the priests While the high priest threatened to close the temple his aides staged a protest in the temple precincts Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan added fuel to the protests by making allegedly derogatory remarks against the thantri who is the supreme authority over the temple rituals and questioning his right over the temple The Hindu groups viewed the overzealousness of the police in taking women from the banned age group to the temple as part of the government’s plan to implement its agenda in the hill shrine The BJP and the Sangh Parivar outfits seized the opportunity and launched protests against the government The attempt by the chief minister earlier to tie the hands of the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB) an autonomous body established by law to protect the interests of the devotees further supported their claim Leaders of the Sangh Parivar and devotees felt that the protests would not have snowballed if the government had allowed the TDB to file a review petition against the verdict The state leaders of the BJP said that the government was not allowing the TDB to discharge its responsibility as it was bent upon implementing the apex court verdict The party leaders say that the massive police crackdown on the protesters and the declaration of roads leading to the hill shrine as high security zones was aimed at paving the way for women from the banned age group to enter the temple during the pilgrim season beginning from 17 November “The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the review petitions and the writ petitions against the five-judge constitution bench on 13 November Instead of waiting to know the outcome of the hearing the government is trying to bulldoze its way at Sabarimala” said state BJP president PS Sreedharan Pillai He said that the desperate attempt being made by the government to take young women to the hill shrine is part of its attempt to implement the ruling front’s agenda of destroying the temple Amit Shah has given the protests a political spin by accusing the LDF government of meddling with the faith of Hindus and destroying their places of worship "Since 26 October around 2000 workers of the BJP RSS and other Hindu organisations have been thrown into jails This is an attempt to suppress the devotees If the government goes ahead with the move the BJP will stand by the devotees not just in Kerala but across the country and even pull down government” he added The chief minister has taken the warning seriously Terming the BJP chief’s statement as a call to topple the democratically elected government he has urged the democratic forces to come out against it He has termed Shah’s statement as an indictment of the country’s highest court “The BJP president is giving a call to dislodge the government for implementing the court order and protecting the constitutionally guaranteed rights of the people The democratically minded people will rise against this threat and give a befitting reply to the BJP” Vijayan said while reacting to Amit Shah’s statement Jacob George a political analyst based at Thiruvananthapuram said that the standoff at Sabarimala has made it a political hotspot “Every party sees potential in the Supreme Court verdict to reap political capital The parties fighting for the devotees have nothing to do with faith Their eyes are on the votes” he said “While the BJP is trying to use the issue to polarise the Hindus the LDF is targeting the minority votes The Congress on the other hand is trying to protect its base among the upper caste Hindus by expressing solidarity with the devotees and taking its pro-Hindu stand to them through public campaigns” he added He said that the LDF is optimistic that whatever gains the BJP may make over Sabarimala may not affect its poll prospects as the former’s support base among Hindus are the committed cadres belonging to the lower castes These members of the cadre have stood by the LDF even after an organisation from the community floated a political party and joined hands with the BJP “This may be the reason why the chief minister has tried to create a wedge between the lower castes and upper castes over the Sabarimala verdict This is aimed at consolidating his party’s base among the lower castes and making additional gains from the minorities and progressive sections Curiously some of the organisations representing the lower castes like the SNDP have been supporting the government” Jacob said He feels that the offensive line adopted by the BJP and the LDF with respect to the Supreme Court verdict may turn Sabarimala into a site of conflict Rome: Roma sporting director Monchi claimed that

fasting where people fast or lower their calories substantially for a short period of time (This diet plan also has potential lifespan-extending benefits) But new research published in JAMA Internal Medicine suggests that the fasting diet may not be the weight loss key it’s been hyped up to be In the new trial researchers wanted to know whether people who tried a fasting diet would be more successful than those on a standard diet They told 100 people with obesity to follow one of three diets for a year Some were told to cut their calorie consumption by 25% per daya typical calorie restriction dietwhile others did an alternate-day fasting diet where they ate about 500 calories on "fast" days and whatever they wanted on "feast” days The last group which served as the control group ate what they normally would MORE: You Asked: What’s the Best Way to Lose Weight The researchers expected that the people in the fasting group would lose more weight and have an easier time sticking to the diet than regular dieters but the results didn’t reflect that At the end of the year people who did the fasting diet and those who just cut calories both lost an average of 13 pounds However people in the fasting group actually had a harder time sticking to the diet and more people in that group dropped out of the study MORE: 100 Super Healthy and Filling Foods "I really thought
