Enter Your Email Address One oilie that has posted some monster gains in recent sessions is Royal Dutch Shell. The FTSE 100 colossus has barged through £23 per share and to two-and-a-half-month highs at the start of this week, propelled by the Brent benchmark rising through $70 per barrel for the first time since last May.And blue-chip rival BP just moved through the 500p marker and to levels not seen since the middle of November, too.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…It hasn’t exactly been a shock to see shares in the oil majors rising in the wake of rising tensions in the Middle East, as markets gear up for possible disruption in the supply of the black stuff. And further oil price gains could be just around the corner with this psychologically-critical milestone now fallen and signs that tensions in the politically-sensitive region are escalating.State of playNeither US President Donald Trump nor the Iranian authorities are showing any signs of dialling down the rhetoric at present. It’s clear that the Middle East is becoming an increasingly volatile powder keg that threatens world peace and that could also have severe implications for the global flow of oil. But are investor expectations of oil reaching ever higher highs because of this unrealistic? Well, the boffins at Goldman Sachs certainly suggest so.In a report released today, its analysts are suggesting that black gold prices may struggle to remain around current levels unless a significant disruption to supplies from the region transpires. The bank pointed out that recent trouble at the US Embassy in Baghdad took place away from nearby oil fields and that any Iranian actions may not take the form of moves on oil-producing assets.Goldman Sachs said that prices were already looking toppy following “an over-enthusiastic December risk-on rally in the face of limited evidence of a material acceleration in global growth,” and that prices now sit at a chunky premium to its “fundamental fair value” of $63 per barrel.This underlines the importance of investing in companies you believe in for the long term and not reacting to short-term price spikes (and we all hope this situation is short term and that some sense can prevail).What should you do?But with the political situation moving hour by hour it’s clear that no scenario can be ruled out, and that oil prices could defy the warnings of Goldman Sachs and keep shooting through the roof for a while. Still, I for one am not tempted to load up on the likes of BP or Shell right now.Those warnings from the investment bank add to my existing sense of unease as a slowing global economy, allied with rising oil production from non-OPEC nations, already casts a shadow over crude price forecasts. So despite the monster dividend yields offered by these Footsie oilies, I would rather use my hard-earned cash to invest elsewhere.

How to make passive income from dividends in 2021 Setting up a passive income stream with whatever savings one has could be a very wise way to begin 2021. With the Covid-19 continuing to hold businesses back and unemployment levels likely to rise, having a second source of cash coming in never made more sense.Here’s how I’d get started.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Passive income 101The first thing to sort before buying anything whatsoever is to open up a Stocks and Shares ISA. By doing so, I know that any dividends I receive won’t be taxed. That might mean saving only a few pence in the beginning, but it could amount to an awful lot of pounds as the years pass.As an aside, sheltering my investments in an ISA will also protect me from paying capital gains tax further down the line when I come to sell. Again, why would anyone want to hand back money to the government if they can legally avoid doing so?Buy the bestOnce an investor has an ISA ready to go, it’s time to buy some shares. Rather than dive in indiscriminately however, I’d look for the best of the best. The first thing I’d check for is whether a firm is actually paying dividends. Unfortunately, a lot of previously great dividend stocks are not currently giving anything back due to the coronavirus. This may be because they’d rather not or, more worryingly, because they simply can’t. Assuming a company is still providing holders with a passive income stream however, the next thing to check is whether the dividends are sustainable. The key thing to look at here is the dividend yield.As a rough rule of thumb, a yield greater than 6% usually requires further investigation. It suggests the market suspects this cash may not be returned. Since a yield can look massive when a share price has fallen heavily, it’s vital to check how a company is faring before buying its shares.  Another ratio to look at is the dividend cover. This is the extent to which dividends are covered by profits. A cover of two is ideal here. Anything less than one is best avoided. It means a company is tapping into its reserves to pay shareholders.A final thing to note is whether dividends have been/are increasing. A regularly-hiked payout suggests a business is growing and management is confident about the future. Stagnant dividends can point to a company treading water.Plan BIf picking individual stocks feels too risky, there’s another way of generating passive income. This involves buying what’s known as an exchange-traded fund. These cheap funds simply track a basket of shares rather than a single company. The iShares Core FTSE 100 UCITS ETF, for example, generates the same return as the FTSE 100 index. Most importantly, buying a product like the one above pays dividends. At the time of writing, the iShares ETF yields a very respectable 3.1%. That’s a lot more than I’d get from a Cash ISA!One last thingAlthough spending any dividends I receive from shares is tempting, I’m also aware that reinvesting this cash will make me considerably richer in time thanks to the brilliance of compound interest. While generating a second income in 2021 is wise, throwing whatever I receive back into the market is an even better plan.Receive, reinvest, repeat. That’s the Foolish way. Enter Your Email Addresslast_img read more

Louver House / LSS

To satisfy a client’s passion for barns, we sought to capture the qualities of traditional barn structures (generous spaces; repetitive timber frames), while developing a modern building responding to the demands both of a residential program, and a site’s dramatic views of the adjacent corn field and nearby moody Atlantic coast. The main home is accompanied by a woodshop with adjoining changing rooms for use of the lap pool that lies just beyond. The woodshop was a special request from the client, an avid woodworker with passionate requirements about the shop’s aesthetic and geographical relationship to the house. With such a strong affinity for a hobby exercised indoors, we exploited the impressive scope of the site and the accompanying nature by designing a compound of buildings that incorporate the emotion of the surrounding outdoors from within the buildings themselves. Save this picture!© Paul WarcholThe entrance of the house is approached along a raised boardwalk. The entry sequence draws one through the building’s louvered skin into a two-story foyer overlooking a three story interior garden courtyard. The house’s public spaces are elevated to the second floor to capture the long views. The main space, an open living, dining and kitchen hall, opens to a billiard room below, and to a mezzanine and a ceiling-scape of delicate three-dimensional hybrid wood-and-steel timber frame members and slot skylight above. An immense stone fireplace divides this hall from the outdoor, screened porch beyond. The mezzanine opens outside to a rooftop garden connecting to a study tucked into the rafters. Save this picture!© Paul WarcholThe foremost determining feature of the project’s architecture is its collaborative use of inside and outside spaces that come together to form a dualistic experience; succeeding in bringing the outside in. To unify the various internal and external spaces, we created a translucent wrapper for the building of louvers and rain screen siding. In all, five outdoor courts and garden spaces are unified under the single roof, giving the structure a double reading of complexity from up close, and simple monolithic harmony from afar. When lit at night, the main house’s light shines from within the spaces between the louvers, allowing a gauzy translucence rarely seen in solid, volumetric structures. Save this picture!© Paul WarcholThe woodshop building also maintains the indoor-outdoor parti with a semi-covered rooftop patio alongside the upstairs woodshop entrance. Down below are the changing rooms, kitchen area and garage, with a breezeway dividing the indoor spaces on either side, paving the way to the pool straight ahead.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholProject gallerySee allShow lessWIFI Technology Center Proposal / AllesWirdGut + FCPArticlesCompetition for Design of Transport PackagingArticles Share CopyAbout this officeLSSOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited StatesPublished on December 26, 2011Cite: “Louver House / LSS” 26 Dec 2011.

The Gooden-Nahome family wanted to create a home on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica and they found an incredible site overlooking the ocean. The biggest challenge we encountered was that their plot of land was predominantly comprised of a very steep slope, and the view of the ocean could only be seen from the upper-mid portion of the site. We saw this as an opportunity rather than a constraint and immediately considered an architectural response that was appropriate for these conditions. Save this picture!© Garcia Lachner photographyOriginally, we explored possibilities of creating large retaining walls and cutting back the soil in order to place the house, a technique typically employed for nearby buildings. Ultimately, we decided to do the exact opposite and therefore allow the slope, the earth, the vegetation, water, and animals to flow underneath the house. We essentially lifted the house up into the air on a series of piloti which gives the impression that it is floating above the hillside. By doing this we saved the immense cost of creating soil retention walls around the site. This common sense solution allowed us to create a very delicate intervention, one that allows the terrain to breathe whilst providing spectacular views out towards the ocean from the key location on the site.

A 1000 m2 plot at a five-minute walk from the center of Reus. In the middle of the site, a self-built country house. A hidden misfit gem. The late grandfather bought this mas many years ago. He spent the second part of his life taking care of it. Using his skills as a watchmaker, he patiently assembled additions, welding, screwing, and growing all kinds of rooms, huts, shacks, porches, fig trees, palm trees, plants, and shades: An outdoors abode, a second house around the former one-floor self-built construction. The house was in a perpetual state of construction, a never-ending laborious enjoyment for its dwellers. And then in 2016 the father died, and the place was empty. A year after the father’s passing, the son, his wife, and daughter -the JECs- decided to move back in. Their only initial demand was that they wanted to live on the ground floor. The JECs first question was whether it was better to keep the existing mas, or to demolish it and build a new structure instead?Save this picture!© José HeviaThe value of this place was not the existing main house. Although its structure was quite in good shape, what made it inhabitable were its self-built garden structures. These outdoor shelters are the real quality of this place. They are impossible to design. Probably they are impossible to reproduce. They are extremely fragile, to the point that it seems impossible to repair them. What we needed to find was a way to up-cycle these structures, and add some more inhabitable air among them. Our approach was not to touch what we wanted to keep -we would just paint it.Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!Plan 01Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!© José HeviaSo neither we kept the existing mas as is, nor we totally demolished it. Instead, we placed more inhabitable air in the worst area of the plot, which was often shaded by the main house. The extension is family to the existing porches. In order to minimise the impact of this new structure, we kept its weight light as a porch, using CLT panels and thin steel tubes. The presence of quite tall apartment blocks on the northern and north-western side protects the site from the strong Mestral winds and shades it during the hot summer afternoons. Surrounded by this slight geological ring, a microclimate unfolds.Save this picture!© José HeviaWe took advantage of our neighbour’s accidental gift by using some lighter construction techniques and opening up towards the western light. By maintaining the old constructions, we got three autonomous habitats, that the family will use according to their changing needs through the seasons and decades. We erased any trace of the program or specific use in the mas. Kitchen, gone. Bathrooms, gone. Rooms, gone. A space is devoid of any program or even suggestion of use. What could be foreseen as a buffer space might become the daughter’s house. What was thought of as a guest apartment might become the writing room…Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!Cross section 02Save this picture!© José HeviaWe separated the bid into two: one for the off-site CLT panels system, with a tolerance of 2 mm; the other for the on-site wet and hot masonry work; and established a very simple protocol so the two parts could work well together. The engineered timber extension was assembled in two weeks. The old house took almost a year to be ready, and it ended up in a final paradox: we had to change many construction details to adapt them to the specific skills of the masons, moving from BIM to bricolage, as if their hand’s were conduits of the late father’s soul, imprinted in the up-cycled terrazzo pavement or the polished brick floors. The late father’s workshop is now a very popular guest apartment.Save this picture!© José HeviaProject gallerySee allShow lessAlison Brooks Imagines Cadence, a Mixed-Use Urban Block, Part of the King’s Cross Ce…Architecture NewsCAA Designs a Modular and Futuristic Floating City for LegoArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Aixopluc Area Area of this architecture project 2018last_img read more

Place-based giving schemes positively affect local philanthropy, report finds

first_imgPlace-based giving schemes positively affect local philanthropy, report finds Melanie May | 13 September 2018 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis20  206 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis20 Place-based giving schemes in England are having a positive effect on local philanthropy, according to a study commissioned by the Office for Civil Society, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.The research, Place-based Giving Schemes Funding, engaging and creating stronger communities, was authored by Dr Catherine Walker, Director at The Researchery with Rhodri Davies, Head of Policy at Charities Aid Foundation as Policy Advisor on the project.It uncovered a large and growing number of place-based giving schemes, with 13 case studies included in the report. These reveal a high level of collaborative working between funders and other organisations spanning the private, public and third sectors, including local councils, local and metro mayors, independent grant-making foundations, businesses and local residents.According to the report, place-based giving schemes in England currently include 21 London Borough Place-based Giving Schemes; 43 Community Foundations; 69 giving circles; plus a number of other forms, differing greatly in approach, scale and maturity.The study also found a strong desire to see more place-based schemes developed, providing they are not seen as a ‘magic bullet’ for solving all issues. In addition, the research suggests there is significant potential to harness people’s sense of identity and community to drive more locally focused charitable giving around the country.However, a number of challenges were highlighted in the research. The most frequently mentioned factors were practical considerations, with funding taking centre stage. Interviewees mentioned the importance of both seed funding and ongoing core cost funding, in part to overcome capacity issues and also to fund a dedicated development worker.Other challenges schemes face included building partnerships: with funders, including corporates, and the local community; building a reputation and track record; evaluating impact; establishing and communicating a brand; and avoiding unhelpful competition with already established local charities.The research also looked at civic philanthropy programmes supported by local mayors. Here it found that while there is currently some partnership working and collaboration between place-based funders and schemes,  there is considerable scope for more, as well as a role for greater collaboration with place-based schemes in many mayoral functions.Rhodri Davies, Head of Policy at CAF, said:“The obvious enthusiasm for the idea of a renewed culture of civic philanthropy is great to see. And the introduction of new forms of local political power such as directly elected mayors offers real opportunities to move this agenda forward. If we can use new place-based models and approaches to harness more giving, it could play a huge role in reinvigorating towns and cities around the UK, and helping them to prepare for the challenges and opportunities the future will bring.”The report will be available to read in full online from today.As a result of the research, the Office for Civil Society promised in the recently published Civil Society Strategy that over £750,000 will be invested in the growth of place-based giving schemes before 2020, to support civic philanthropy.Author of the report, Dr Catherine Walker of The Researchery, said: Advertisement Tagged with: Office for Civil Society place-based giving Research / statistics  205 total views,  1 views today “It was a real eye-opener to see the number and variety of place-based schemes happening all over the country, and I’m thrilled that on the back of this research the government has announced, as part of the new Civil Society Strategy, a new pot of money to help more place-based schemes develop.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

This latest obstacle for the station comes a month after the police raided its Minsk bureau and seized equipment.“The authorities are continuing to harass Radio Racyja, one of the few independent news outlets in Belarus,” the press freedom organisation said. “We call for an end to this administrative persecution, which is motivated solely by political considerations.”Minchonak was summoned to the foreign ministry on 28 May and was told his request for accreditation had been turned down on the grounds that he had already begun to work without permission.The decision was “absurd,” Minchonak told Reporters Without Borders. “One the one hand, the foreign ministry targets us for working without accreditation, while on the other hand it continues to refuse our requests.”The police still have not returned the five computers and other equipment they seized in the raid on Radio Racyja’s Minsk bureau a month ago. The pretext for the raid was the station’s alleged role in creating animated cartoons posted on the Internet in 2005, which were deemed to have insulted President Alexandre Lukashenko.Radio Racyja was launched in 1999 by the Polish government and the Dutch embassy in Warsaw. Its repeated requests for accreditation in Belarus have always been rejected by the foreign ministry. It broadcasts from Poland and has a network of correspondents in Belarus who work without accreditation. It often criticises the government, unlike Belarus’ own state-controlled radio stations.

Rouhollah Zam, the editor of the Amadnews website and Telegram news channel, was hanged after being sentenced to death in an unfair trial. Although executions are common in Iran, it was the first time in 30 years that a journalist has been subjected to this archaic and barbaric practice. Of all the journalists killed in connection with their work in 2020, 84% were knowingly targeted and deliberately murdered, as compared to  63% in 2019.

What is being attacked is the right to be informed, which is everyone’s right.” As in the past, the most dangerous stories are investigations into cases of local corruption or misuse of public funds (10 journalists killed in 2020) or investigations into the activities of organised crime (four killed). In a new development in 2020, seven journalists were killed while covering protests.  In Nigeria, two journalists fell victim to the climate of violence accompanying protests, especially protests against the brutality of a police unit tasked with combating crime. In Colombia, a reporter for a community radio station was fatally shot while covering an indigenous community protest against the privatisation of local land that was violently dispersed by regular police, riot police and soldiers. In the 2020 annual round-up of journalists who are detained, held hostage or missing at the end of the year, published on 14 December, RSF reported that 387 journalists are currently detained in connection with their work. This is virtually the same as a year ago and means the number of journalists detained worldwide is still at a historically high level.  In Mexico, Julio Valdivia Rodríguez, a reporter for the daily El Mundo, was found beheaded in the eastern state of Veracruz, while Víctor Fernando Álvarez Chávez, the editor of the local news website Punto x Punto Noticias, was cut to pieces in the western city of Acapulco. In India, Rakesh “Nirbhik” Singh, a reporter for the Rashtriya Swaroop newspaper, was burned alive in December after being doused with a highly flammable, alcohol-based hand sanitiser in his home in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh by men sent by a local official whose corrupt practices he had criticised, while Isravel Moses, a TV reporter in the southeastern state of Tamil Nadu, was hacked to death with machetes.

The wedding was held on April 17, it was attended by around 80 to 90 people. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice B V Nagarathna said “We make it clear that we are not on one individual function already held on 17th April. But we are on the question of State Government permitting such functions which prima facie will defeat the very object of imposing lockdown and introducing several prohibitions. If the policy of the Central Government and State Government is to permit holding of such marriage functions which can be attended by more than 50 persons, the Government must say so in writing so that all the citizens will be entitled to benefit of the said facility.” The observation was made after the state government submitted that “Permission for the ceremony was granted by the Deputy Commissioner, Ramanagara District on April 16. Private security persons were deployed by the organizers with strict instructions to permit only invitees, and the same was ensured under the supervision of the Dy. SP. Ramanagara. A team of health officials were deployed at the marriage ceremony for thermal screening of all attendees. The officials also ensured that masks and sanitizers were distributed to everyone present as per the Covid-19 protocol. In addition, bandobast arrangements were made at the venue of the marriage, and the general public were strictly not permitted to attend the ceremony.” Additional Advocate General relied upon Clause (4) of Annexure I to the order dated 15th April, of the Ministry of Home Affairs. Annexure I is of “National Directives for COVID-19 Management”. Clause (4) is under title “PUBLIC SPACES” which provides that “Gatherings such as marriages and funerals shall remain regulated by the District Magistrate”. However, the bench said “Assuming that the District Magistrate had power to grant permission for holding a marriage ceremony on 17th April, we are surprised to note that he has omitted to mention in the purported permission any ceiling on the number of guests attending the marriage function.” The court referred to orders dated 15th April, 2020 and 1st May, 2020, and called for a policy statement from the Central Government and State Government on whether it is open for the District Magistrates to grant permission for holding of marriage ceremonies and other gatherings which are prohibited, irrespective of number of guests attending the function. It reminded the authorities about Clause (5) of Annexure-I of the order dated 1st May 2020,which specifically records that marriages related gatherings shall ensure social distancing, and maximum number of guests allowed shall not be more than 50. In Annexure-I to notification dated 15th April, 2020, there was no such relaxation granted allowing attendance of not more than 50 guests. The State Government has also been told to submit details about how many Movement Passes for inter district travel of the vehicles were granted to enable the guests to attend the function held on 17th April, 2020 Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Press release: Edinburgh Airport COVID-19 testing centre opens to Key Workers

first_imgA drive-through coronavirus testing facility has opened at Edinburgh Airport as part of the Government’s UK-wide drive to increase testing for thousands more NHS and other key workers.The Edinburgh Airport site sits alongside a rapidly expanding network of testing sites being set up around the UK, and is operating on an appointment-only basis for NHS staff and other key workers. The facility will be piloted for its first few days of operation.This follows the launch of the Government’s partnership with universities, research institutes and companies to begin rollout of the network of new ‘lighthouse’ labs and field testing sites across the UK, with 27 testing sites opened to date.This network will provide thousands more PCR swab tests – which are used to identify if you currently have the virus – for critical key workers, starting with NHS front line staff. This means those who test negative for coronavirus can return to work as soon as possible, and those who test positive are able to recover.The Edinburgh Airport testing centre is being operated in partnership with Sodexo, with Boots medical staff administering some tests and others being self-administered. Those tested will receive their results within 48 hours.Health Minister Lord Bethell said:“The UK Government is rapidly scaling up the national effort to boost testing capacity for coronavirus to protect the vulnerable, support our NHS, and ultimately save lives.“This new service will help end the uncertainty of whether NHS and social care staff need to stay at home meaning those who test negative will be able to return to work.“This is a national effort and we are proud to be working with a number of partners to turn this ambition into a reality and roll out additional capacity to where it is needed.”Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said:“This new testing centre at Edinburgh Airport, which is funded by the UK Government, will help key workers continue to do their lifesaving work and look after those who need it most.“The UK Government has committed to expand our testing capacity right across the UK and this new centre is now one of three in Scotland. We will continue to work for everyone in the UK to save lives and protect our NHS.”Professor John Newton, National Coordinator for the UK Coronavirus Testing Strategy, said:“New testing sites such as this one are a key pillar of our 5-pillar plan to scale up testing, and are critical in supporting NHS staff who are isolating at home to return safely to work if the test is negative.”“This is a brilliant example of industries and businesses turning their resources to creating and rolling out mass testing at scale, which will help to deliver on our aim of carrying out 100,000 tests a day across the UK by the end of the month.”A Boots UK Spokesperson said:“We feel incredibly proud to be supporting COVID-19 testing for critical workers in Edinburgh.”“Boots has been at the heart of UK healthcare for 171 years and has always come forward to support the community in times of need. Our team in Edinburgh is no exception. Some of our colleagues have already stepped forward to volunteer to run this COVID-19 testing station, which will start testing its first critical workers today.”Sean Haley, regional chair of Sodexo UK & Ireland said:“Sodexo teams have moved quickly to set up COVID-19 testing centres as part of the industry-wide effort to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. The opening of the Edinburgh Airport testing site will mean more frontline NHS and other staff can be tested and cleared to provide care to those who need it most.”“I am proud of our colleagues who are working together with pace and dedication to support the NHS.”Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:“We understand that the coronavirus pandemic is a national issue that requires a national response, and we realise we have a role to play by offering up space that can be utilised for crucial testing.“The Government is also urgently working on setting up a home-testing service for critical key workers, supported by Amazon’s logistics network and other commercial partners.last_img read more

Bob Dylan Announces ‘Rolling Thunder Revue’ Boxset, Release Date For Martin Scorsese Documentary

The box set will also include three discs of rehearsals and one disc of rare performances.Rolling Thunder Review Tour was more of a traveling musical caravan than a well-structured concert run. It began back in October 1975 and continued until March 1976, with 57 total shows performed over two legs. The tour featured an impressive mix of guest musicians including Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Beatnik icon and poet Allen Ginsberg, Mick Ronson, and many more.Dylan’s Desire LP would also be released in January 1976 between the two parts of the lengthy tour, which was initially chronicled in a 1978 film, Renaldo and Clara. The tour was titled in tribute to a Native American shaman by the same name, although some have claimed the tour name was a reference to the aerial bombardment campaign by the U.S., which took place during the late 1960s as part of the Vietnam War.Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings Disc Listing:DISC 1: S.I.R.

The derailment is currently under investigation, he added. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said approximately 600 passengers were on board at the time of the derailment, which spawned service disruptions on the Ronkonkoma, Oyster Bay and Port Jefferson branches. Service was also suspended between Jamaica and Hicksville—one of the railroad’s busiest branches. LIRR riders were advised to use Montauk, Babylon and Hempstead lines.

EU programme targets €2.1bn boost for venture capital

first_imgThe European Commission and the European Investment Fund (EIF) have launched a venture capital programme aimed at resolving the size problem that has deterred many investors from allocating to the asset class.Through the VentureEU programme, the EU will fund six venture capital funds-of-funds to the tune of €410m with a view to the funds raising up to €2.1bn from public and private investors.The Commission said this was expected to unlock €6.5bn of new investment in innovative start-up and scale-up companies across Europe, doubling the amount of venture capital currently available on the continent.Developing venture capital in Europe is part of the Commission’s Capital Markets Union (CMU) plan. InvestEurope, the European venture capital association, said the aim of the programme was to attract global investors such as pension funds and insurers that currently found European venture capital funds too small.The average venture capital fund in Europe was currently around €65m, according to the association, but funds needed to be able to raise at least €150m to attract large private investors.“For the last eight years, Invest Europe has advocated using public money in new ways to bring in more private capital and facilitate the next stage of venture capital’s evolution in Europe,” said Michael Collins, CEO of the trade body. “It is a great step forward for investment in European innovation that this is now becoming a reality.”The Commission said the average size of European venture capital funds was €56m compared with €156m in the US, but agreed that they were too small.Commission vice-president Jyrki Katainen said: “In venture capital, size matters.”The six funds are to be managed by Aberdeen Standard Investments, Axon Partners Group, IsomerCapital, LGT, Lombard Odier Investment Managers and Schroder Adveq.The underlying funds will focus on at least four European countries each and invest in a range of start-ups and small and medium-sized companies in sectors such as information and communications technology, life sciences, and energy.The EU’s investment in VentureEU will be managed by the EIF.last_img read more

Moyes could not resist United lure

first_img In an emotional press conference, his first since confirmation on Thursday he would be leaving Goodison Park after 11 years, it was clear how much Everton means to Moyes, who said: “I’m disappointed to be leaving such a great club. The club has been such a great part of my life.” But when asked if he had considered turning down United’s approach, Moyes said simply: “I have to be honest and say no.” The huge numbers of media present underlined the interest in Moyes replacing Ferguson. Moyes greeted those present with a wisecrack: “Have you nothing to do today?”, before confirming he wished to talk solely about Everton, which he did with an acute sense of pride. “It has been very difficult,” he added. “I have great respect for the chairman and have a great relationship with him. He is a really good guy. We had a difficult meeting on Wednesday but he totally understood.” Moyes leaves Goodison Park with a sense of regret at not being able to claim the silverware he craved. The nearest he managed was the 2009 FA Cup final, when the Toffees were beaten by Chelsea. Yet, as he pointed out, Everton had only collected one cup in the decade prior to his arrival, so that empty trophy cabinet is not something he should be condemned for, even if those United fans not entirely comfortable with Ferguson’s replacement have been quick to point it out. Instead, Moyes prefers to focus on how his own approach to the job has developed. “I might have got mellower, although you could argue that is a bad thing,” he said. “When you are young, you are intense. I have not lost the intensity but maybe I use it in the right way. The experience and comfort which I have felt in my job, because I had good players and a stable board, has helped me mature and develop. But I hope I have not lost the inner devilment which I think I still have within me.” Press Associationcenter_img Outgoing Everton manager David Moyes said he was disappointed to be leaving a “great club” but admitted there was no way he could turn down the opportunity to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.last_img read more

Local wheelsmen sign petition to remove GCF president, other officials

first_img… President admits to conflicts LOCAL cyclists, disgruntled with the way the Guyana Cycling Federation (GCF) has been operating over the past 16 months since the new executive assumed office, have finally said `enough is enough’ and to this end, 40 licensed riders have affixed their signatures to a petition seeking the resignation of the Federation’s principal officers.One day after another section of the media broke the news of the petition, GCF president Horace Burrowes was contacted and admitted that the Federation had been plagued with internal conflicts at the executive level and that was responsible for the downward spiral of the sport. However, he stated that he was committed to addressing the concerns of the cyclists.The cyclists, who have signed the petition and who have all been doing Guyana proud at the regional and international levels, want to see the backs of the president (Horrace Burrowes), secretary (Maria Leung), vice-president (Jerome Allicock) and treasurer (Rosanna Sukhoo).According to the cyclists, among the reasons for their drastic call is the fact that the officials have shown scant respect for the oath they took to serve and take the sport to another level.Among the stated infractions are: Failure to hold meetings and/or attend which shows disrespect for their commitment to cyclists; the failure of the president and most of his executives to attend the 2016 national championship; the failure of the president to publish the results of the WADA drug test of November 2015; the incompetence of the president in publishing inaccurate information on social media, resulting in the GCF being embarrassed; the president being non-resident, communication is difficult.However, Burrowes who is resident in the USA, in responding to the cyclists’ petition told another section of the media that he would be in Guyana in another few weeks and he would be meeting with his executives and clubs to address their concerns.He said over the past months he had been meeting with other cycling federations with a view of getting technical and other assistance for local cyclists and he was currently in talks with the Mexico cycling body, seeking assistance for the development of Guyanese track cyclists.He said he also plans to pursue more alliances with the Pan American Cycling Confederation (COPACI) when he attends the COPACI Annual General Meeting fixed for Cuba next January.last_img

Badgers survive shootout in OT

first_imgBRYAN FAUST/Herald photoWhile many were figuratively knocked to the floor by the play of Winthrop down the stretch, head coach Gregg Marshall was literally floored as No. 11 Wisconsin turned the tables on the Eagles in overtime.After weathering the late Winthrop storm that saw the Eagles discard a late double-digit UW lead, the Badgers got hot in OT and built a nine-point lead they would not relinquish, eking out an 82-79 overtime victory over the NCAA’s premiere giant hunter.”Oh, it stings. Yeah, it stings,” said Marshall, who took a nasty spill midway through UW’s overtime run while arguing a traveling call on his team. “Wisconsin moved up to No. 11 today (in the polls), so we’re ’11 B.’ That’s the way it is, they’re 11, we’re ’11 B.'””You can tell by the way both teams were playing, there wasn’t any lack of respect for one another,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said. “That was a hard-fought, toe-to-toe, December game.”The Badgers (8-1, 0-0 Big Ten) narrowly avoided becoming the latest upset victim for the small school in Rock Hill, S.C. (enrollment: 6,600), which has toppled Providence, Clemson, Marquette and Mississippi State in recent years, as well as narrowly missing out on dealing North Carolina, Gonzaga, Tennessee and Maryland losses as well.The Eagles (6-3, 0-0 Big South) made 15-of-25 shots from beyond the arc (compared to 6-of-25 by UW) and were led by a stellar performance from senior guard Torrell Martin, who made 7-of-11 three-pointers and tallied 31 points.Martin had a chance to win the game for the Eagles with a three-point attempt at the second half buzzer, but hit the rim and allowed for overtime to ensue.”I had a great shot, just didn’t knock it down,” Martin said. “I was about as open I could get. … I just didn’t make the play when I needed to make it.”The game appeared to be well in hand for Wisconsin with 9:20 remaining in the second half, as the Badgers held a comfortable 14-point lead and hadn’t really been threatened since halftime. Then, all of a sudden, the Eagles became white-hot, scoring on nine of their last 10 possessions, culminating with the upset-minded squad taking a two-point lead with only 54 seconds left on the clock.”We were just trying to take it right at them,” Martin said after the game. “Really, it was about good players stepping up and making big time shots, because Wisconsin was playing great defense at the end.””Once they started hitting shots, their energy picked up,” said senior forward Alando Tucker, who poured in 21 points. “Their defense picked up their offense.”While Winthrop was making it look easy, on the other end of the floor, UW’s conversion of a final shot to tie the game was more of a struggle than passing a kidney stone. The Badgers needed four shots, three offensive rebounds and two stoppages of play before the unheralded Michael Flowers — who had 21 points, five assists and two steals — snagged an offensive rebound and put it back in with 11 seconds remaining to tie the score.”In order for him to get that opportunity, we had to fight for the other ones,” Ryan said. “They were scrapping, we were scrapping … he gets the last opportunity. He’s an opportunistic young man.”Wisconsin was hardly out of the woods yet, however, as the Eagles had enough time for a final shot. Winthrop came down the floor and somehow found Martin open with the clock winding down, but the Columbia, S.C., native missed the open look.”After watching him put the ball in the hoop all game long and [then seeing him] have the ball in his hands with point-something seconds left on the game clock, my heart sank,” Flowers said.Gifted with second life, the Badgers gave Winthrop some of its own medicine, scoring on its first eight overtime possessions (with only nine overall) and building that nine-point lead they would not let go this time.”Once we got that second chance … we knew we had it,” Tucker said. “We sat down at the end of regulation, and I looked everyone in their eyes and we had confidence. [I knew] it was our game now.”While the big plays by Flowers and Martin defined the game, what might’ve truly been the tale of the tape was Wisconsin’s ability to outmuscle Winthrop inside. While the Badgers and Eagles both scored 26 points in the paint, UW out-rebounded their Big South foe by 40-18 and made 34 trips to the line, compared to only 10 for Winthrop.”The real key was us getting on the glass, there’s no two ways about it,” Ryan said. “It also helped us getting to the free throw line, getting on the glass.”The Badgers will have a chance to catch their breath before playing their true first road game of the season Saturday against in-state rival Marquette, ranked No. 17.last_img read more

Organization aims for more female leaders

first_imgYiqing Sun, a first-year student in the Master’s of Science in Entrepreneurship and Innovation program, has become the city ambassador for the Beijing organization GirlsUp. As campus ambassador, she hopes to encourage young women to get out of their comfort zones and start their own businesses.GirlsUp, which is known as GirlUp in Beijing and is also where the organization was founded, serves as an incubator for young female entrepreneurs by connecting them to investors. The organization, which operates under the three themes of empowerment, communication and lifestyle, helps young women to develop their business models and strengthen their pitches. GirlsUp also hopes to provide an environment where young women can meet mentors and form connections.Sun said that in her classes she does not necessarily feel outnumbered by men. She said, however, that she felt that there were not a lot of women in USC taking positions of power.Winners · Left to right, Amanda Yodowitz, Alina Efford, Lloyd Greif and Stephanie Schwartz pose with a check to help develop a business concept. – Photo courtesy of Helena Yli-Renko“Leadership is a real issue,” Sun said.With GirlsUp, she hopes to change that. Her sentiment is shared by other students at USC.“I agree that there’s a disparity between female entrepreneurs and male entrepreneurs at USC,” said Rani Tiruveedhula, an alumna who graduated in 2014 in an email. “When I was an undergrad, I would take trips with the entrepreneur club members to Northern California to meet with companies. There was one trip in which I was the only woman.”Other students felt that men also tended to have an advantage in terms of business resources.“I feel like there is not enough resources, especially for women who want to become entrepreneurs in comparison to men,” said Karishma Nagar, a senior majoring in industrial and systems engineering and co-founder and president of her own startup, Pixeom, in an email.The Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies is taking measures to encourage young women to become entrepreneurs.“The Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies encourages female entrepreneurship by bringing in successful women entrepreneurs as faculty, guest speakers, and mentors into the entrepreneurship program,” said Helena Yli-Renko, director of the Greif Center in an email.In January 2014, the Greif Center and the Marshall MBA Career Center organized the first Marshall Women’s Pitch Competition. Forty female entrepreneurs competed for the grand prize of $40,000.In the spring, the Greif Center also held the Venture Seed Competition where participants took part in workshops to refine their business concepts. At the end of the competition, students presented their businesses to a panel of judges and received cash prizes. Two of the groups that won $5,000 were composed of primarily women.Through GirlsUp, Sun hopes to further promote the entrepreneurial spirit of young women at USC. She hopes to maintain the brand spirit of the GirlsUp in Beijing, while also customizing it for the United States.“Instead of setting up traditional career fairs, I hope to create events where people can just talk,” Sun said. “Once a month, I also hope to create fun outings so members can meet.”Sun wants to expand to other campuses nearby.“I am also planning a pitch competition with other universities in the area like UCLA and Santa Barbara, so that students can meet each other and bounce ideas back and forth,” Sun said.Sun believes that the biggest reason women decide not to follow through with their ideas is because they don’t know how to carry them out.“They have a brilliant idea and they know their goal, they just do not know how to achieve it,” she said. “With GirlsUp, we hope to teach young women how to carry out their goals.”Yli-Renko encourages all aspiring entrepreneurs take action and start their businesses.“I must say I’ve never felt that being a woman is a disadvantage or would somehow have made starting the business more challenging” Yli-Renko said. “If anything, it might help — you stand out in the crowd and people remember you.”GirlsUp will be holding its first event on Wednesday and Thursday in TCC 302. The organization is inviting people to come for tea in the afternoon so that they can get to know the organization better and meet other aspiring female entrepreneurs.“I don’t want women to sit back and wait for their ideas to unfold,” Sun said. “I want them to take action. I want women to create something beautiful.”last_img read more

Sophomores launch social hangout app

first_img“It took about a year and a half to finally push it to market … so it’s been a while, but now that we’ve released it, we’re really happy with the results,” said Tahbaz, a sophomore majoring in real estate development.  “We pretty much found out a way that this would be the best way to bring people together through the use of statuses, which no app is currently doing,” Tahbaz said. “I think it’s a pretty new market … but I think that one big app could really just change the entire landscape and cause a lot of more apps to come into play.” Lam came up with the idea during high school but only started working on it with his roommate in Fall 2018. They hired a developer in India to create the app.  “So we developed this idea because this would allow you to know exactly when all of your friends would be available at any point,” said Lam, a sophomore majoring in business administration. “When you’re bored, you can just see who is available and then text them — people who you wouldn’t have texted in the first place.”  The app, which launched Nov. 18, makes it easier for users to see their friend’s availability  and message them or make a group chat ideally leading to more spontaneous plans.  Lam and Tahbaz are trying to grow the app’s usership by marketing primarily through social media and posting on college Facebook pages.  The app contains three pages that include messages, a directory and the user’s profile. The directory page shows the friends’ statuses, and the profile shows the user’s own availability status and interests. “It definitely has been easier,” Tahbaz said. “We’ve been using it, and it’s made it more convenient for us to figure out who’s available and who’s not at whatever time that we want to hang out, go get something to eat or go watch a movie or something.” “[The app] makes it really easy to just go straight to who’s free to hang right now instead of having to ask a bunch of people,” Tang said. “It’s a wonderful accessory on top of your other messaging apps.” Users can share their availability through a green, yellow or gray dot on their status to show whether they are available, may be available later or are unavailable.  “A lot of people enjoyed the UI [user interface] of the app. It’s really clean, it’s really basic. We’re slowly gaining traction,” Lam said. “We’re just slowly trying to gain more traction to get some more users on the app and hope that it grows bigger in the coming few months.” Like many college students, Tiger Lam and Sallar Tahbaz found it difficult to make plans during their freshman year because all of their friends had different schedules. Learning from their frustrations, they decided to take matters into their own hands. The duo created Hangski, an app that allows users to input their schedules and see when their friends are available, to help other students avoid this issue. Robert Tang, a sophomore majoring in business administration, said he started using the app after he heard about it from his friends and said he liked how convenient the app made it for him to hang out with friends he wouldn’t normally see.  He said they are already working on an update to make the app more accessible, allowing users to upload their class schedule and personal activities so the app can automatically change their status.  “I think that would help a lot because a lot of people find it a little bit tedious to change your status every time you’re free and change your status every time you’re not free,” Lam said.  Tahbaz said the app has made it easier for him and his friends to plan activities with others and helped him avoid scheduling conflicts and miscommunications.  Lam said he believes the app would be useful to other students like him who had faced trouble coordinating plans or didn’t know who to hang out with when they were bored, especially on a large college campus that can be isolating for students who aren’t involved in organizations. Lam and Tahbaz looked to apps such as Snapchat, Instagram and Skype when developing the feature that shows when users are on the app. Tahbaz said he wanted to use this feature in a way that would help people meet up in real life, rather than just show when they could chat with each other online.  Two sophomores, Sallar Tahbaz (left) and Tiger Lam (right), launched Hangski, an app dedicated to helping students coordinate their schedules.

GiGse will explore the marriage of esports and gaming

first_imgEsports is set to play a big part at the 2017 edition of  GiGse (April 26 – 28, Marriott Marquis Marina, San Diego) with sessions looking at how the gambling sector can gain a market share of the economy. Sadie Walters, GiGseIt will look at this relationship both in terms of igaming and casinos. Day 1’s Talking Heads session, entitled ‘Our relationship with esports – we’re moving in together!’ will feature the likes of Adam Steinberg, Senior Vice President, Spectrum Gaming Group; Kingsley Edwards, Founder and CEO, Leet; Seth Schorr, CEO, Fifth Street Gaming and Dan Kelly, Principal, The Factory Network.  The debates will include how operators can refine their casino based esports offering, how to monetise the tournament industry as well as posing the question of whether there is a conversion between on-premise esports activity and casino revenue?Sadie Walters, Conference Manager responsible for GiGse said: “With architects confidently predicting the development of purpose built state of the art esports arenas and the very real possibility of esports becoming an Olympic event, perhaps as early as Tokyo 2020, the commercial opportunities for gaming entrepreneurs are huge.”When it comes to Las Vegas and casinos, there is unmatched potential for these to be used to hold mid-level esports tournaments in their venues. Only yesterday it was announced that Esports Arena, in partnership with Allied Esports, is re-vamping a 30,000 square foot nightclub space in the Luxor on the Strip for a dedicated esports venue.Nearby in the downtown part of the city, Millennial Esports has its 200 seater venue at the Neonopolis.

NBA free agency rumors: Nikola Vucevic will commit to a 4-year, $100M deal with Magic

first_img Kevin Durant free agency rumors: Nets no longer front-runners for Warriors star Orlando made a big stride to secure its big man.According to a report from The Athletic, the Magic put together a four-year deal that will exceed $100 million and that was good enough for Nikola Vucevic. The Orlando Magic are preparing a four-year offer believed to be in excess of $90 million to their All-Star center Nikola Vucevic in hopes of completing a deal shortly after Sunday’s opening bell in free agency, league sources say— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) June 28, 2019According to an earlier report from The Dallas Morning News, Vucevic was eyeing $25 million per year, which is what he’ll get with the team’s newest terms.”Last, but not least, is the question of All-Star center Vucevic, who has long been reported, including by The News, as a likely Mavericks free-agent target. Sources, however, now tell The News that while the Mavericks see Vucevic as a viable fit alongside Kristaps Porzingis, Vucevic is seeking a starting salary of $25 million and thus is out of Dallas’ price range. And there is little-to-no chance of Vucevic falling into the Mavericks’ comfort-level price because his current team, Orlando, wants to keep him and because he has other suitors, particularly Sacramento and Boston.”Vucevic wrapped up his seventh season with the Magic and is coming off a career year where he averaged personal bests in points (20.8) and rebounds (12). Related News Celtics’ problems extend beyond Kyrie Irving, report says Klay Thompson free agency rumors: Warriors, star agree to 5-year, $190M max contract He is planning on committing to the offer when free agency begins 6 p.m. ET Sunday. Orlando free agent All-Star Nikola Vucevic plans to commit to a four-year, $100 million deal to return to the Magic, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 30, 2019A previous report hinted that the deal would exceed $90 million, which would have been under the amount the All-Star was hoping for.last_img read more

Lazza set to release maiden tag

first_imgTomorrow’s Jamaica’s Racehorse Trainers’ Association (JRTA) 10-race programme at Caymanas Park offers a Pick-9 carryover of $2.7 million from race two to 10 and a $1.2 million carryover in the first Super-6 from race one to six.The second Super-6, which starts anew with a guaranteed minimum of $750,000 will embrace races five to 10, including the JRTA feature over 1200 metres to be contested by the maximum 16 starters, the final race on the card.We look at the first Super-6, which commences with the Dye Job Sprint over 1200 metres (restricted stakes) for native and imported two-year-olds. Seven starters have been declared, and from all indications, the unbeaten BLUE DIXIE, with former champion jockey Omar Walker riding for trainer Gary Subratie, should repeat.The bay filly by Sky Mesa out of Dixieland Bull made a smashing debut over this trip on September 27, making all to win by nine lengths from BIG AL in 1:14.4. Having looked sharp at exercise since, BLUE DIXIE should win from RALLY BABY, an easy winner over the straight on November 18.The recent winner BATIDOR DE MUNDO from the stables of Clifford Atkinson Jr holds the key to the second race (claiming $350,000-$300,000) over 1820 metres, despite the presence of PERSIAN BELLE, ABOVE THE RADAR, and GO GO TRAIN, all of whom have won over this trip in the past year.BATIDOR DE MUNDO, however, has won three races over the distance lifetime and with the useful 4.0kg claiming apprentice AndrÈ Powell securing the ride, will prove hard to beat. Prior to his recent win over PERSIAN BELLE at a mile, BATIDOR DE MUNDO beat MISS BOSS LADY over this trip on a $350,000 claiming tag August 15 and back in action from the convenient mark of 53.0kg, should win from PERSIAN BELLE (Dane Nelson up) and GO GO TRAIN (Wesley Henry).GOODFORMLAZZA, who has been knocking at the door, looks best of a moderate field of maiden three-year-olds in the third race over 1500 metres with Shamaree Muir aboard. There is not much good form present among the eight starters, hence LAZZA, who finished third to WELL BLESSED over 1200 metres last Saturday, has most appeal, ahead of MINY LEE, who is steadily coming along.Bang in form FORCE DE JOUR won his seventh race from his last eight starts last Saturday, and despite running from a different barn (claimed), is definitely one to follow with competent Harleston Lewis aboard. The 4-y-o colt from the stables of Lawrence Freemantle has most to fear from old rival SUNLIGHT EXPRESS, both having finished first and second, respectively, over the straight on October 19 in the good time of 59.1. They should form the quinella.The last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by BIGDADDYKOOL (Shane Ellis up) and NATSHADONTPLAY (apprentice Linton Steadman), who caught the eye last Saturday when a fast-finishing fourth to TOUCH DE ROAD over 1300 metres.Their respective dangers are THE PROMISE LAND in the 2-y-o race and GENUINE FRIEND, who was second to TOUCH DE ROAD recently.FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIES(1) BLUE DIXIE(2) BATIDOR DE MUNDO/PERSIAN BELLE(3) LAZZA/MINY LEE(4) FORCE DE JOUR/SUNLIGHT EXPRESS(5) BIGDADDYKOOL/THE PROMISE LAND(6) NATASHADONTPLAY/GENUINE FRIENDlast_img read more

$6.5M HEYS grant for Region 9 youths

first_imgSome 130 youths from 19 villages and communities in Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) who participated in the Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Ministry’s Hinterland Employment Youth Service (HEYS) Programme received an additional financial boost to their respective businesses established under the youth programme.Youths from 11 villages in South Central, Rupununi, and eight in Karasabai with existing businesses received their grants on Wednesday last in Shulinab and Karasabai.Minister within the Indigenous People’s Affairs Ministry, Minister Valerie Garrido-Lowe, in her remarks to the youths said she is pleased with the overwhelming response the programme has received from villages and youths and is extremely proud of the success stories seen and heard from across the hinterland. She urged the youths to fully capitalise on the opportunity which will ensure they receive an improved standard of living.Also present at the exercise were the Coordinator of the HEYS Programme, Junior Williams; Region Nine HEYS Monitor, Rohan Bishop; and the respective village Toshaos’ and senior Councillors.Meanwhile, the Ministry has been evaluating the programme and from all indications the success stories are compelling and already villages have been lobbying to have a third cohort.The Hinterland Employment and Youth Service, provided one year of training to 3795 youths in 222 villages over the last two years. This training allows for capacity building, strengthening of life skills, bolstering literacy and numeracy skills, creating self-awareness and building esteem, strengthening individual vocational interests and entrepreneurial aptitudes.”Businesses range from cattle rearing, poultry rearing (broilers, layers and ducks), crops and vegetable farming, nursery (grafting of fruit trees), fishing, fish farming, sheep, goat and pig rearing, cassava bread/quinches/cassareep production, honey production, hardware stores, and a floating grocery store.last_img read more

Chaotic but still on course, Spain seek major World Cup improvement

first_img“Long live VAR! But like this we won’t win the World Cup,” declared the front page of Spanish sports daily Marca on Tuesday.A last minute solution to patch up the errors of a miserable start is the story of Spain’s World Cup so far.Coach Julen Lopetegui was sacked two days before their tournament opener against Portugal, with Fernando Hierro rushed into the role despite his lack of previous managerial experience.Hierro has been unable to match the heights of La Roja’s brilliant qualifying campaign under Lopetegui, although he was praised for the impact of his substitutions against Morocco as Aspas and Rodrigo came off the bench to save the day.By winning the group Spain face hosts Russia in Moscow on Sunday and find themselves on the more favourable side of the draw, as is reflected by their new status as tournament favourites by bookmakers.However, a series of defensive lapses need to be eradicated if they are to go any further.“We like to be clear and honest,” said captain Sergio Ramos, who was at fault for both Moroccan goals. “This is not the way forward.“The group stages always allow you a margin for error, these errors from now on send you home.”– ‘Transparent’ De Gea –Dropped? David de Gea could be left out for Spain’s World Cup last 16 tie with Russia © AFP / Jewel SAMADRamos and Gerard Pique have at times endured a frosty off-field relationship due to their roles as figureheads for the Real Madrid-Barcelona rivalry.On the field, though, they have rarely been questioned with multiple Champions League medals for their clubs and World Cup and European Championship winners for Spain.Both have been error-strewn so far in Russia with Pique also lucky to escape an early red card against Morocco.Behind them David de Gea looks a different goalkeeper to the one who has won Manchester United’s player of the year for four of the past five seasons.De Gea let a simple Cristiano Ronaldo effort through his hands in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Portugal and has made just one save in three games.“Goalkeepers have moments where they lose their confidence and become transparent because they don’t make any saves. That is what is happening right now to De Gea,” former Spanish international ‘keeper Santi Canizares told radio station Cadena SER.De Gea’s understudy, Athletic Bilbao’s Kepa Arrizabalaga, has never even started a competitive international. But there are increasing calls for the 23-year-old to be thrown into the intimidating atmosphere of 80,000 home fans baying for an upset at the Luzhniki Stadium this weekend.“From now the games of life and death begin and we can’t continue gifting goals away,” said Isco, Spain’s best performer in Russia to date.Heroes of Spain’s three successive tournament wins between 2008 and 2012, Andres Iniesta and David Silva’s places in the team are also under threat from the more youthful Koke, Saul Niguez and Marco Asensio.Hierro promised to make “as few changes as possible” when hired less than two weeks ago. Now he is under pressure to revolutionise his team to ensure Spain remain in Russia.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000VAR to the rescue: Iago Aspas celebrates his equaliser against Morocco © AFP / Patrick HERTZOGSAINT PETERSBURG, Russian Federation, Jun 26 – In a chaotic World Cup, Spain have lost a coach and won just one game, but remain ultimately where they want to be after winning Group B in dramatic fashion with the help of VAR.Iago Aspas’s injury time equaliser to secure a 2-2 draw against already eliminated Morocco had initially been ruled out by an errant offside flag before the video assistant referee intervened.last_img read more

New setback for automakers

first_imgBrendan Bell, a Washington representative for the Union of Concerned Scientists, said Sessions’ swift rejection of their arguments could lead judges considering similar disputes in California and Rhode Island to dismiss the cases. One of the plaintiffs, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, which represents General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co., Toyota Motor Co. and others, has not said whether it will appeal the Vermont decision. Sessions’ ruling built upon the momentum for stronger emissions requirements created by the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in April that said the EPA has the authority to regulate greenhouse gas pollution. As a result, the EPA now has dozens of scientists and researchers developing new regulations that are slated to be released by the end of the year. The rules are expected to incorporate President Bush’s “20 in 10” proposal to reduce gasoline use by 20 percent by 2017. Bell said the decision was “one more turn of the crank putting pressure” on the EPA as it develops the rules. “It sets the bar,” Bell said. “What California is proposing is technologically feasible and is the floor.” EPA spokeswoman Jennifer Wood said the agency was “in the process of taking the first regulatory step in addressing greenhouse gas emissions from new cars” and would issue a proposal by the end of the year. The Vermont case will also be part of the backdrop in the negotiations expected to begin this fall on an energy bill. The Senate approved tougher fuel economy regulations in June that would require automakers to reach 35 mpg by 2020. A similar House bill was silent on the issue and lawmakers from both chambers will need to resolve the differences. The industry has tried to build support for an alternative that would seek more moderate increases in the standards for cars and trucks, up to 32 to 35 mpg by 2022. Frank O’Donnell, president of Clean Air Watch, a nonprofit environmental group, said the ruling would help House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., build consensus around the Senate version. “The Senate provisions look quite tame compared to California, they look very modest and moderate so it gives Pelosi a very strong argument,” O’Donnell said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – A ruling by a Vermont judge this week against the auto industry over tough rules curbing greenhouse gas emissions could have national ramifications, from government agencies developing new regulations to the halls of Congress. The decision, the latest setback for the auto industry, could stifle similar litigation pursued by carmakers while placing more pressure on Congress to implement strict fuel economy rules in an energy bill expected to be negotiated this fall. Environmental groups said Judge William Sessions III’s decision on Wednesday bolstered the attempt by California and its allies to receive a waiver from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to set up more stringent vehicle anti-pollution standards than those used by the federal government. “This, I think, turns up the heat on the EPA on the question of the waiver which is the key step here,” said Phil Sharp, a former Indiana congressman who serves as president of Resources for the Future, an environmental group. The EPA has said it will decide on the waiver by the end of the year. Under the Clean Air Act, California has permission to implement its own pollution rules if it receives a federal waiver. Vermont is among a dozen states that have adopted California’s standards. In Vermont, automakers challenged the limits developed by California that would require a 30 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from cars and trucks by 2016. The industry said that would require average fuel economy standards to surpass 43 miles per gallon, well above the current requirement of 27.5 mpg for passenger cars. Those standards are unattainable, the industry said during the April trial, arguing that it would create a patchwork of regulations across the nation and cause financial hardships for the manufacturers. But Sessions was unconvinced, writing that “history suggests that the ingenuity of the industry, once put in gear, responds admirably to most technological challenges.” The judge reached his decision after listening to hours of expert testimony and analysis put forth by the auto industry during the 16-day trial. last_img read more

Lampard to raid former club for top academy graduate

first_img Burke has been at West Ham since he was nine Frank Lampard will return to his boyhood club West Ham to try and nab Reece Burke.New Derby manager Lampard has come in at the eleventh hour in a bid to pip Championship rivals Hull City to the Hammers academy graduate. Centre-back Burke, 21, was all set to join Hull for £1.5million on Monday after leaving West Ham’s pre-season training camp in Switzerland to fly home for a medical.Derby, though, have made an improved offer and West Ham fan Burke is also tempted by Lampard’s club connection, The Sun report.Lampard also came through West Ham’s academy before joining Chelsea, while his dad, Frank senior played more than 500 times for the Hammers.Burke would be Lampard’s biggest signing so far having taken the job in May and has already snapped up former Arsenal forward Aaron Eyoma on a free transfer.Burke is reluctantly quitting West Ham after being told his appearances would be limited under new boss Manuel Pellegrini.The East Londoner joined the club aged nine and played five Premier League appearances before being sent on loan to Wigan, Bolton and Bradford.The arrival of club-record signing Issa Diop for £24 million has pushed him further down the pecking order.center_img 1last_img read more


first_imgKILLYBEGS is celebrating a massive jobs boost today – with 36 new posts in the seafood processing sector and a further 250 in a pilot jobs initiative.The national seafood processing sector has been given a massive jobs boost with the creation of 160  new posts – 36 of them in Killybegs – over the next three years.Simon Coveney, minister for the marine, revealed 18 companies nationwide been approved for grant aid of 1.7 million euro to improve efficiency, promote consolidation and bring in additional income. A pilot jobs initiative for Killybegs has also been announced aimed at creating an additional 250 jobs in the area by 2014.Mr Coveney said the projects approved for support create additional income and employment.“For example, Fastnet Mussels in Cork will be investing in new capital equipment in order to produce value added cooked mussel products,” he said.“Atlan Fish in Donegal are developing a value added processing area in order to increase production and broaden their product range, while Rockabill Shellfish in Dublin plan to increase production of value added prawn products and improve efficiencies through the installation of energy efficient equipment. “In total 158 new jobs will be created around the country and will be a huge boost to local economies, many in rural coastal communities.”Elsewhere the Killybegs jobs initiative is the result of an economic study carried out for the EU Commission which assessed the status, development and potential diversification of Killybegs as a fisheries dependent community.Mr Coveney said: “It is clear from this economic report that significant job creation potential exists for fisheries-dependent regions such as Killybegs, provided there is a focus on the natural resources that are obvious to the region.“I am conscious that there needs to be greater integration and ‘joined up thinking’ from state agencies and stakeholders in the region if this potential is to be achieved. With that in mind, I’m establishing a focused expert group to identify a direct series of actions that I believe can deliver 250 jobs in the Killybegs region over the next three years.”The minister added: “I am confident that this model of co-ordinated developmentally focused activity which is concentrated on natural resources can be a good model to drive economic development and job creation in the Killybegs region.” DELIGHT AS 286 NEW JOBS ANNOUNCED FOR KILLYBEGS was last modified: June 3rd, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more


first_imgENOUGH county councillors will vote today to enforce a ban on Donegal County Council officials from using personal data to track down people who haven’t paid the Household Charge, a councillor is hoping.Sinn Fein’s Jack Murray managed to read out his motion a fortnight ago before Fine Gael Mayor Noel McBride could stop him.That has meant the motion is on the agenda for today’s county council meeting. Cllr Murray says he now has the support of the independent councillors including Michael McBride, Labour’s Frank McBrearty and many of the Fianna Fail representatives.This will set a legal precedent in Donegal – if passed – where council civil servants will not be able to use utility bills and family welfare details to track down the estimated 70% of people in this county who have not paid the charge.Cllr Murray said: “I have personally contacted every single councillor and I am confident that the emergency motion I put to the council two weeks ago will now be voted on and will be carried.“I am hoping that this will set a precedent for other councils throughout the state to follow suit.” Cllr McBrearty is set to defy the Labour Party and support the Sinn Fein motion, calling for a review of the charge so that those who can’t pay don’t have to. DONE DEAL: SINN FEIN/LABOUR/FIANNA FAIL PACT TO TAKE ON FINE GAEL OVER HOUSEHOLD TAX was last modified: April 16th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Christy Toye and Michael Langan were the other goal scorers for St Michael’s who delivered an accomplished performance in difficult conditions at The Bridge.The score-line would suggest St. Michaels had it all their own way, but in truth the first-half was a closely fought game.Bundoran had the advantage of the breeze, but in truth were unable to take advantage of it and only posted four first-half points.St. Michaels also found scores hard to come by in the opening period, but a penalty from Colm McFadden and great team move involving Martin McElhinney, Ciaran Gallagher and Oisin Langan was finished off brilliantly by Michael Langan. Those goals ensured St Michaels led 2-01 to 0-04 at the interval.In the second-half St. Michaels were absolutely clinical and ruthless in their play, and outscored Bundoran 2-09 to 0-02.St. Michaels were fantastic in the second-half, and with players from both Kilcar and Glenswilly in attendance at the game, St. Michaels have certainly gave them food for thought ahead of their forthcoming clashes with both teams in the next couple of weeks.    ST.

Early Massive Galaxies Will Require Theory Overhaul (Again)

first_imgBig bang theory didn’t expect massive galaxies so early, but they’ve known about this problem for over a decade.Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) reported an unexpectedly large number of massive galaxies in the early universe. An infrared survey using the VISTA telescope showed many galaxies that had escaped earlier scrutiny. The team led by Karina Caputi counted 574 massive galaxies estimated to have existed just one billion years after the big bang. The big bang is commonly dated at 13.7 billion years ago. Why is that a problem?In addition, the astronomers found that massive galaxies were more plentiful than had been thought. Galaxies that were previously hidden make up half of the total number of massive galaxies present when the Universe was between 1.1 and 1.5 billion years old. These new results, however, contradict current models of how galaxies evolved in the early Universe, which do not predict any monster galaxies at these early times.To complicate things further, if massive galaxies are unexpectedly dustier in the early Universe than astronomers predict then even UltraVISTA wouldn’t be able to detect them. If this is indeed the case, the currently-held picture of how galaxies formed in the early Universe may also require a complete overhaul.There was a dropoff in massive galaxy counts at earlier ages, but as the quote above explains, that may be because the telescope is unable to detect them.A footnote explains what is meant by massive galaxy: “In this context, ‘massive’ means more than 50 billion times the mass of the Sun. The total mass of the stars in the Milky Way is also close to this figure.”Update 11/19/15: Quotes on about this: “their existence so close to the time of the Big Bang calls into question scientists’ best understanding of how large galaxies form” and “There’s basically not enough time for these kinds of objects to form.” The Hubble team is making the excuse that galaxies were more efficient at making stars back then, PhysOrg says, but that sounds like special pleading to dodge the issue. The “unexpected result” of finding “a lot more bright, highly star-forming galaxies in the early universe than scientists previously thought” has “implications for galaxy formation at the earliest times,” the article says. What implications, exactly? That astronomers were totally wrong in their expectations?What? They were supposed to overhaul their theories years ago. In his video What You’re Not Being Told About Astronomy, Vol II: Our Created Stars and Galaxies, Spike Psarris cited reports from 2007 of mature galaxies 500 million years after the big bang, much earlier than these (see 7/25/07). He quotes Nature in 2009 after more discoveries of early galaxies were reported: “The findings could overturn existing models for the formation and evolution of galaxies… that was the reason for the surprise – that it disagrees so radically with what the predictions told us we should be seeing” (see 4/02/09). As for those “existing models” threatened with overturning, Psarris had earlier showed that astronomers are clueless about how galaxies form at all. This early in their big-bang scenario, there were barely supposed to be stars, let alone massive galaxies. (Incidentally, secular astronomers also consider star formation to be a major unsolved problem; see 2/22/11.)This article reinforces what we have been reporting since 1/08/2002: the “grand finale came first” in the cosmic fireworks show (see also 1/02/04, 1/23/04, 3/31/06, 8/18/06, 8/11/07, 2/19/08, 1/09/14, etc.). It’s like the Cambrian Explosion in the fossil record. Instead of slow-and-gradual evolution, you have the nearly instantaneous appearance of complex structure. The early mature galaxy problem contradicts evolutionary predictions and models, just like the Cambrian Explosion contradicts Darwinism. Do these independent instances of falsification have something in common? Yes: secular materialism.Astronomers are like corporate cronies on the government dole who consider themselves too big to fail. They are bankrupt and have promised to overhaul their practices for a dozen years now. It’s time to call them to account. “Get ‘er done,” Larry the Cable Guy would say. We call on the secular astronomers to show us their action plan for a “complete overhaul” right away, or else do the honest thing and quit. Word has it truck companies are hiring.Recommended article and video: “It’s really not rocket science” by Granville Sewell on Evolution News & Views.(Visited 51 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Bafana slip to 1-0 loss to Norway

first_img9 January 2013Bafana Bafana went down 1-0 to Norway in Cape Town on Tuesday in a warm-up match for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations. For South Africa, as has long been the case, finishing proved to be a problem.Coach Gordon Igesund, who looked frustrated at times during the match, put a positive spin on matters after the contest. “Of course I am disappointed with the loss,” he said, “but I am happy that we have shown much improvement from our previous matches.“What is important is that we are now creating a lot of chances and we are close to getting it right. We were just unlucky tonight because we could have been at least three goals in the lead at the end of the first half,” he added.‘They will learn from this experience’Looking ahead, Igesund said: “We need to use our ball possession better but that will come, come the Afcon tournament. I am glad the players made mistakes in this match and not in the tournament, so that we are able to rectify where we are going wrong. They will learn from this experience.”Captain Bongani Khumalo suggested Bafana needed to show more urgency in the opposing box, saying: “We played a good brand of football, but maybe at times we should get more ugly in the box and gamble. But these are the things we will work on.”At first, Bafana Bafana struggled to settle as they struggled to string passes together. When they did, they lacked penetration.Blocked shotAfter 15 minutes, however, the home team found a cutting edge when Reneilwe Letsholonyane picked out striker Katlego Mphela just outside the box on the right. Mphela smartly turned his marker and got off a shot that goalkeeper blocked with his right leg.Just minutes later, Siphiwe Tshabalala almost played Mphela in. The striker beat one defender, but the last man hacked the ball away to prevent Mphela getting a shot off.Norway responded with an attack of their own, but captain Tarik Elyounoussi failed to make contact with Erik Huseklepp’s dangerous cross to the far post.After a strong run, Thuso Phala fired in a cross for Mphela. The Norwegian central defenders cut it out, but the ball bounced high in the air, close to Lerato Chabangu. He went down under a challenge as the ball was scrambled behind for a corner and his claims for a penalty were brushed aside by the referee.ParriedIn the 24th minute, Bjorn Helge Riise let rip from outside the South African area with a first-time effort, forcing goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune to parry the ball to his right before collecting it at the second attempt.Just after the half-hour mark, fullback Anele Ngcongca joined in an attack and was played in by Kagisho Dikgacoi. He should have shot from close range, but instead crossed when he had ample time to shoot.Ten minutes before the break, Phala rounded the Nigerian defence on the right and sprinted in on goal. He slid a pass into the six-yard box, forcing goalkeeper Jarstein to dive and knock the ball away from his goal. It went just past Mphela and towards Letsholonyane, who nipped the ball past two defenders before it was desperately cleared it to safety by a third.GoalFive minutes from the break, Risse picked out Elyounoussi in the South African box. The Norwegian skipper broke inside, taking the ball wide of two defenders as he headed towards the middle of the box, which at the same time opened up a couple of angles for him. He left-footed shot comfortably beat Khune to his left, giving the visitors the lead.The first chance of the second half went Bafana Bafana’s way when Phala sent substitute striker Tokelo Rantie clear. Rantie’s first touch was a little heavy, however, and Jarstein was able to block the shot with his legs. Phala followed up, but his shot was stopped by one of three defenders covering the goalkeeper.In the 65th minute, Norway attacked down the right flank. There were plenty of defenders back when the low cross came in, but captain Bongani Khumalo was caught in a difficult position and the ball deflected towards Elyounoussi on the edge of the box. The Norwegian captain fired, but Khumalo put his body on the line to stop the shot.Brave saveSouth Africa surged back onto the attack. Phala was picked up with a lovely through ball, which gave him space on the right. His cross to Thulani Serero, another of the substitutes, forced Jarstein into a brave save at the feet of the South African attacker, mere metres from the goal.The home team kept pressing, forcing Norway to concede a number of corners. From one of them, the Norwegians were almost caught out when Serero was able to receive a ball to his feet deep inside the box. His strike, though, hit the body of a defender and was cleared.With only five minutes to go, Phala should have scored when the ball was cut back to him, but he fired over the crossbar from the edge of the six-yard box, raising oohs and aahs from the crowd.Norway held on to triumph 1-0 in a game that South Africa dominated. The home team deserved a goal given their control of the contest, but their finishing undid an otherwise decent performance.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

The (not so spooky) tale of Halloween pumpkins

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest On a day with no shortage of haunting pumpkins around the corner, many people may be wondering just how the largest, most terrifying of these autumn staples come to be. The answer is not nearly as spooky as the end product. A bit of late night investigation will reveal there is a fair amount of agricultural expertise behind those giant Halloween pumpkins.Even first-time growers are capable of growing pumpkins in excess of 400 pounds if the seeds are the Atlantic Giant variety, which are available at numerous garden centers and catalogs, according to Mike Estadt, educator, Ohio State University Extension.“To grow pumpkins in excess of half a ton, it all begins with superior genetics,” Estadt wrote in Growing Giant Pumpkins in the Home Garden, a new Ohioline fact sheet.Ohioline is OSU Extension’s free online information resource and can be found at OSU Extension is the outreach arm of The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.Generally speaking, some of the other things to consider when growing pumpkins, Estadt said, include the following.Site selection and planting: Each pumpkin plant should be allowed 1,000 square feet of growing space in an area that has several hours of daily sunlight and access to water, considering that pumpkins require large amounts of water.Fertilizer and lime: When planting, you’ll need to have the soil tested to determine whether lime and fertilizers are needed based on your soil requirements.Planting and space requirements: The pumpkin seeds should be planted individually in 12-inch peat pots indoors in April and can be transferred to the ground when the first true leaf is fully expanded, typically 10–14 days after seeding. Once planted outside, they can be protected from frost using row covers, or a small greenhouse.Irrigation: Pumpkins have shallow roots, so they will need to be watered slowly with at least 1 inch of water per week if the area doesn’t experience an adequate amount of rainfall.Insects and diseases: An insect and disease control program should be initiated when you transplant the pumpkin plants from the pots to the ground. This is because once a bacterial or viral infection has occurred, there is no way to stop it. And several pests are attracted to pumpkins, including striped cucumber beetles, squash bugs, and squash vie borer.Pollination: While hand pollination is the preferred method to fruit-setting, natural pollination by honey bees, squash bees, and bumble bees will also work well.Shade: Once the pumpkins get to a certain size, they need to be protected from direct sunlight. For example, you can use a bedsheet draped over the pumpkin, leaving the stem exposed.Ohio is one of the top producers of the large, carving type of pumpkins, usually ranking between third or fourth among states for pumpkin production, according to the Ohio Department of Agriculture, with more that 66 million pounds of pumpkin produced statewide last year.And, from a nutritional standpoint, pumpkins are an excellent, healthy food because they are low in calories, are full of potassium and antioxidants, and the seeds make excellently nutritious and tasty snacks.last_img read more

Saving Sustainably: Pouring the Slab

first_img RELATED ARTICLES Editor’s note: This is one in a series of blogs detailing the construction of a net-zero energy house in Point Roberts, Washington, by an owner/builder with relatively little building experience. You’ll find Matt Bath’s full blog, Saving Sustainably, here. If you want to follow project costs, you can keep an eye on a budget worksheet here. Green Encyclopedia: Slab FoundationsSub-Slab Mineral WoolUrban Rustic: Prepping for a Basement Slab Insulating a Slab on Grade Q&A: Can the Concrete Slab Be Eliminated in a Super-Insulated Slab?Polyethylene Under Concrete Slabs Joseph Lstiburek: Concrete Floor Problems BLOGS BY MATT BATH Designing and Installing a Septic SystemFoundation FormworkAn Introduction And now the slabA freshly poured slab is an incredibly beautiful thing. When the concrete first comes out of a truck it looks like a messy slop of oatmeal with blueberries in it (the blueberries being the gravel). The crew used a long, straight 2×4 as a screed and ran it back and forth to level the slop.After about 20 to 30 minutes, the slop has started to gel a bit, and the gravel sinks down just a little. At this time, a long pole with a metal “float” attached is run across the surface (see Image #4 below). The float pushes the gravel further down and brings this very creamy part of the concrete up to the top. It is at this stage when the concrete really starts to take on a new personality, like an awkward teenager emerging from acne-filled puberty.Another 30 to 45 minutes go by, and the concrete really starts to harden, but when you run a float over the top you can still get a tiny layer of cream to appear. You continue working this cream back and forth over the top, smoothing and smoothing until it, too, begins to harden. At this time, a strong force over a small area of concrete will create an indentation, but by kneeling on pieces of plywood, the pressure is applied over a larger surface area and the concrete doesn’t move. Using these “kneeboards,” you can get over to the center of the slab and work that as well without marring the surface.I must admit that I had another learning experience during this pour as well: We ended up running out of concrete with a tiny corner of the slab left to go. I made a quick trip to the hardware store and snagged 13 bags of concrete. We mixed it up and finished the job. All said and done, you can’t tell the difference, and hopefully there will be no negative side effects down the road.After the concrete hardened, I went out and sprayed it down with a fine mist every 15 minutes or so. While excess water added to the concrete before it has set will reduce its strength, when water is added after setting it slows the curing process and prevents cracking that can occur when the concrete sets too quickly. Adding mineral wool insulationWith the forms removed, I placed 2-inch thick Comfortboard 80 on the interior vertical face of the stem walls. Many people are puzzled by a layer of insulation sandwiched inside two pours of concrete, but it will serve two important purposes. It will protect the slab from frost heaves during the winter, and work in unison with the walls and roof to reduce the heating and cooling loads required to maintain a comfortable temperature in the house all year long.Mineral wool insulation doesn’t have the disadvantages that some types of rigid foams have. It really is an incredible product. You can soak it down with a hose all you want, peel back the outer layer, and the inside will be bone dry.I cut a 45-degree angle on the top edge of the insulation. This will allow for maximum insulation while also giving the slab a firm connection to the concrete.More insulation will follow, but in the meantime, I capped off the entire DWV (drain, waste, vent) system and filled it with water. I added a 10-foot section of ABS pipe to one of the vents so I could show the required “10 foot head of pressure” for the inspector. The force of gravity on the column of water held in that pipe applies a force to the entire system; the code recognizes this test to show there are no leaks in the system.center_img A gravel capillary breakCapillary forces are very powerful. Have you ever been to a redwood forest and wondered how water gets from the roots to the leaves at the very top of the tree? The answer is capillary force, and surprisingly, it works even more efficiently in concrete than it does in trees! Scientists believe concrete has such powerful capillary force that it theoretically has the ability to drive water 6 miles upward against the force of gravity. Wood maxes out at about 400 feet, which is why you don’t see any trees taller than that.In an effort to curb these powerful forces, building codes require that a layer of gravel and a vapor barrier be placed underneath a concrete slab. The gravel allows any standing water to drain away, and the vapor barrier takes care of any water vapor.I added a gravel layer inside my stem walls (see Image #2 below). The long 2x12s you see in the photo act as barriers to prevent the gravel from falling into the “shovel footing” at the center of the slab. That is necessary to support the bearing wall that will soon be framed directly above it. Once all the gravel has been added and compacted, the boards will be removed and a 12-inch-wide and 8-inch-deep ditch will be left behind. It is much easier to create the ditch this way rather than by shoveling the gravel out.When we pour the concrete for the slab, the concrete will flow into this ditch and the slab will be 8 inches thicker along that line, giving added support to the bearing wall. The entire roof of the house is supported on only two exterior walls, so none of the interior second-story walls have any weight to carry. I could have supported the weight of the floor joists between the first and second stories in the same way, but I would have had to use special engineered I-joists. Instead, it was much easier to use two lengths of 2×12 joists and have them meet on top of one of the first story interior walls. This wall is the bearing wall. With advice from customer service, I used a sledge to pound each stake in a few inches and then used the JackJaw to pull it up until it wouldn’t move any farther, then repeated the process. It was an agonizingly slow process, and I still have four stakes in the ground as I’m typing this, but that’s about 92 stakes less than I had in the ground a week ago.With the stakes out, you might think it would be quite easy to pull off the form boards. The smooth plywood forms were still greasy from the last time they had been used so they didn’t adhere to the concrete. All the screws and stakes holding them together had been removed. Unfortunately, because of the way the concrete had curled up and around the bottom of the form boards, removing them was just as excruciatingly time-consuming as pulling out the stakes. Like running a marathon, it didn’t seem like a lot of fun while I was in the middle of it, but looking back on it the experience was much more rewarding this way and I surely have some additional muscle tone to show for it. After a couple weeks of frustration, I was rewarded with my second successful inspection today, giving me a green light to pour the concrete slab that will complete the foundation. It is hard to believe that at the next inspection, the house will be completely framed!The frustrations I experienced over the last two weeks resulted from once again underestimating the fantastic power of concrete. I should have removed the stakes and forms for the stem walls as soon as 24 hours had passed, but I was nervous and decided to wait an extra day. When I finally got the nerve to pull the stakes they didn’t budge a millimeter. I had purchased a fancy stake puller called a JackJaw that my mentor had used to remove his form stakes, but I had decided to go for the $225 unit instead of the $450 one. The result was the rapid destruction of the tool.Thankfully, JackJaw has outstanding customer service and offered to accept the unit back at a full price credit towards the more expensive one. After a week of waiting, it finally arrived, and though it was many times more powerful it was still a battle to get the stakes out. They had been setting in a layer of concrete about 16 inches thick in footings beneath the stem walls for more than a week. More insulation caps the gravelAfter all of the gravel had been added, I leveled it out and installed the horizontal layer of mineral wool, as you can see in Image #3 below. The 2-inch-thick insulation extends inward from the stem walls a total of 2 feet. (The center of the slab is not insulated.) Keep in mind that the more insulation added now, the lower the heating bill will be in the future. Investing an extra $300 now will quickly pay off in a year or two, and then I will reap the benefits every year after that for the life of the house.Once the insulation was added, I ran a plate compactor around everywhere to ensure the gravel was well compacted. Then I pulled out the long 2x12s to create the shovel footing.A plastic vapor barrier tops the layer of mineral wool insulation. Seams and penetrations are sealed with tape. The rebar is on a 4-foot grid, and is held 2 inches off the plastic with chairs. That will place the reinforcing steel in the middle of the 4-inch slab.The last steps before the pour were to add the vapor barrier and the rebar. The 15-mil vapor barrier comes in a large roll so it was simply a matter of rolling it out and cutting it to fit. Wherever a pipe penetrated the plastic I used vapor barrier Tuck Tape to seal the hole. I tucked all the edges of the barrier in between the two layers of insulation.I lined up the rebar in a neat, 4-foot grid and set it on 2-inch-high chairs so it would end up right in the middle of the 4-inch slab (see photo at left).last_img read more

Amazon: Can It Stay King Of Cloud Computing Forever?

first_imgHow Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud Tags:#Amazon#AWS#Azure#cloud computing#Cloud Providers#Google#IBM#Microsoft#OpenStack#Red Hat Matt Asay Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… Related Posts center_img Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting IBM’s decision to throw its considerable weight behind OpenStack has some folks declaring victory for the open source cloud consortium. The hitch? Amazon already claims a considerable lead, with more than 70% of the market, according to Forrester’s James Staten, and as one prominent Amazon backer declares, the lead grows daily.Can Amazon Withstand Sustained Cloud Computing Competition?The question is whether Amazon can withstand a sustained, concerted attack by nearly everyone else in the cloud computing industry.So far, according to Adrian Cockroft, director of architecture for Netflix, Amazon Web Services’ biggest customer, the answer is an emphatic “Yes.” In a Twitter exchange last week, Infoworld’s Eric Knorr asked “Is the choice really between OpenStack and AWS? What about other cloud solutions?” Cockroft’s response was clear:When asked which features, in particular, AWS had that OpenStack couldn’t match, Cockroft insisted that there is “too much to list,” but “Availability Zones and Autoscale Groups” are two features that stand out. Furthermore, Cockroft indicated that OpenStack’s six-month release cycle cripples its ability to catch up with Amazon, which rolls out new features (and price drops) on a continuous basis.In other words, “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”Has Amazon Already Won? Yes and No.But has Amazon already won? If you look at the absolute number of jobs being created, relative to OpenStack or Cloudstack, the answer is yes. Ditto if you go off general interest, as measured by Web searches:But if you look at relative job growth, suddenly OpenStack has a fighting chance.Perhaps even more tellingly, a foray into the code contributions for OpenStack suggest a truly dynamic, growing entity, one that is no longer Rackspace’s pet project, but rather a true community effort. The most recent data I could find is a year old, but already shows growing influence by Red Hat and others.Does this matter? Absolutely.Big Players Will Make A Big DifferenceHowever, I suspect that OpenStack will gain prominence in tandem with a few of its primary supporters gaining outsized influence due to these code contributions. Linux took off as IBM invested $1 billion (and then much more) and Red Hat, in particular, invested armies of engineers to make it into an enterprise-grade operating system standard.The same will hold true of OpenStack. Right now it’s making waves by being the open, community standard. That’s nice, but insufficient and somewhat misleading, as Gartner’s Kyle Hilgendorf has established. Ultimately, enterprises don’t care about community and openness unless the product itself is rock solid.Which is one reason that Microsoft and Google also can’t be counted out. Microsoft holds sway with CIOs, and has been actively welcoming open-source technologies to its Azure cloud service. Google, for its part, was building clouds long before it was cool, and has so many hooks into developers with its various software and services, from Android to Maps to YouTube to Apps, that it cannot help but be a major player. Google Compute Engine’s performance compares well against Amazon, too, but it’s the ease developers will have tying into Google’s services that truly favor it.Has Amazon won Round 1 of the Public Cloud wars? No question. But some serious competitors are looming, each with attributes (Microsoft, enterprise fealty; OpenStack, community; Google, popular developer services) that give them a real chance to cut into Amazon’s significant lead.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.last_img read more

IPL 2011: India gears up for IPL after World Cup glory

first_imgJust six days after its national team sparked nationwide celebrations by winning the World Cup, India’s obsession with cricket will switch to the start of the money-spinning Indian Premier League when the Twenty20 event gets under way on Friday.The euphoria since India beat Sri Lanka to secure the 50-over world title on Saturday can only be good news for the fourth edition of the IPL, which starts in Chennai after allegations of corruption prompted a change in management.The league’s former head Lalit Modi has been suspended since April 2010 by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, which has been investigating bribery allegations in the 2008 auction for new IPL teams. Modi was later replaced by Indian cricket board vice president Chirayu Amin.The IPL is the world’s richest cricket tournament, worth $4 billion in franchise fees and television rights. It has some of the best-known Bollywood cinema stars and billionaire tycoons among its owners, while several of the world’s top cricketers play in its teams.Two new franchises – Kochi and Pune – joined in 2011 after bids worth a combined $703 million. The newcomers will increase the league to 10 teams and the number of matches from 60 to 74 for the April 8-May 28 event.Sahara Adventure Sports, part of the diversified Sahara Group, bought the rights for a team in the western city of Pune for $370 million, and called it Pune Warriors. A consortium called Rendezvous Sports World won the franchise for the southern city of Kochi for $333 million and named it Kochi Tuskers Kerala.advertisementTeams have also undergone an overhaul following the second player auction in January. Only 12 players were retained by five of the eight teams from their original squads.Defending champion Chennai Super Kings retained Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, his compatriots Suresh Raina and Murali Vijay, and South African Albie Morkel – as it parted with half of the $9 million salary cap available to teams.The 2010 finalist Mumbai Indians kept India stars Sachin Tendulkar and Harbhajan Singh, Sri Lankan pace bowler Lasith Malinga and West Indian allrounder Kieron Pollard for $4.5 million.India batting star Gautam Gambhir was the most expensive player at the auction, picked up for $2.4 million for two years by Kolkata Knight Riders. The team also bought Indian allrounder Yusuf Pathan for $2.1 million.Among other top internationals at the high end of the bidding were Sri Lanka vice-captain Mahela Jayawardene, bought by Kochi for $1.5 million, Australian David Hussey, hired by Punjab for $1.4 million and a South African trio – Dale Steyn, netted by Deccan Chargers for $1.2 million, AB de Villiers by Bangalore and Jacques Kallis by Kolkata for $1.1 million each.Mukesh Ambani, who controls India’s most valuable company, Reliance Industries, and film actors Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Shilpa Shetty, all own teams in the IPL.last_img read more

Modi swearing-in ceremony: Unwell Lata not to attend

first_imgSinging legend Lata Mangeshkar is not attending Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi’s swearing in ceremony on Monday.Media reports said the melody queen is unwell, hence she will not attend the star-studded ceremony, that is being tipped as a globally watched event.The other top film celebrity who is not attending the event that is being graced by 4000 guests at the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan is Rajinikanth.Among the key notables giving the event a miss are Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy.While megastar Amitabh Bachchan and actor Rekha were invited to the event, reports said Bachchan might skip the same. While indusrialist Mukesh Ambani had already arrived, sports icon Sachin Tendulkar was also due to come.    Narendra Modi displays the victory symbol. AP PhotoThe event has drawn global attention in view of South Asian Association for Regional Co-operation (SAARC) leaders, including Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, arriving in New Delhi for the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government swearing-in.As for the Union Council of Ministers, there will be 25 ministers of Cabinet rank, while a similar number of leaders will take oath as state minister.Since all the regional political parties of Tamil Nadu including the ruling AIADMK, DMK, PMK, MDMK and a host of various Tamil groups are opposing Sri Lankan President Rajapaksa’s visit, Tamil protestors strongly felt that Rajinikanth should boycott the swearing-in.last_img read more

IPL 2015: Ecstatic Virat Kohli praises AB de Villiers

first_imgAs Royal Challengers Bangalore started their IPL 2016 campaign with a bang, skipper Virat Kohli was over the moon with his team’s all round show at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru on Tuesday night. (Match Report | Highlights)Put in to bat, AB de Viliers and Kohli stitched a 157-run stand to power RCB to a mammoth 227/4 in their 20 overs. In reply, Sunrisers Hyderabad could only manage 182/6, losing the match by 45 runs.Put under pressure in the second over when Bhuvneshwar Kumar removed Chris Gayle, but it was De Villiers who decided to take on the bowlers ease some pressure off his captain’s shoulder.”We lost the toss and did not get what we wanted to. It was a really good effort from the batsmen. AB was fantastic and we’ve had a big partnership in Bombay as well. He took the pressure off me,” Kohli said in the post-match presentation ceremony.De Villiers, who struck seven fours and six maximums in his blitzkrieg knock, was relived to return to form.”Absolutely love playing here. The crowd always gets behind us. Loved batting with Virat and enjoyed myself. I have been scratchy in the last few weeks, even in the nets I felt horrible,” De Villiers said.De Villiers also had a special word of praise for his team’s bowling unit.”The bowlers have played together for quite a few years. All of a sudden it looks like a very good combination of youth and experience. Some very good signs for this season. Hopefully we’ll take this into the next few games,” he said.advertisementNehra out for a couple of gamesSunrisers have been dealt a massive blow as Ashish Nehra has been ruled out of at least two games due to a groin injury. Skipper David Warner said Nehra’s absence will hurt the team.”It hurts when one bowler goes down. Tough ask for the boys to go out there and get 228. Nehra will be out for a couple of games dur to groin injury,” Warner said.However, Warner heaped praise on young Bangladeshi pacer Mustafizur Rahman for his brilliant bowling.”Mustafizur bowled well throughout the World Cup and he’s definitely a find. We have a nice batting track in Hyderabad, and we have to execute well with the ball and not lose wickets in clumps,” he said.last_img read more

Indian Premier League 2016, Match 15, Gujarat Lions vs Sunrisers Hyderabad: As It Happened

first_imgSunrisers Hyderabad ended Gujarat Lions’ three-match winning streak with a 10-wicket thumping win in an Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Thursday. (Scorecard)Updates:23.10 IST: David Warner: “I have to give credit to the bowlers. They gave us the opportunity to win, and the way we judged the situation, getting their in 14 odd overs, was fantastic. I felt the ball kept a little bit low. We knew it would be two-paced and the ball didn’t get up much. Bhuvi’s change of pace is amazing and Mustafizur is very hard to hit, his change of pace is amazing. I faced him first in Bangalore and he knocked my blocks off. I think he will play Test and ODI cricket one day too. If we can keep chasing totals like this, we will go a long way in the tournament.” 23.07 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar is adjudged Man of the Match. 23.04 IST: Suresh Raina: “The toss is not really crucial. We thought the wicket will slow up later. We just didn’t score enough. Started well but lost too many wickets. 160 would have been good. This wicket was different to the last one. Every batter has to be clear with his batting plan but has to build a partnership before going for the big shots. We needed to have wickets in hand to execute plans later. We need to work hard with the new ball to get wickets. We will come hard in the next game.” 22.57 IST: Gujarat Lions’ winning streak of three matches comes to an end.

My strength is swing and in T20s, no batsman expects a bowler to swing the ball. (On Mustafizur) He’s a bowler who has a different action, slower ball is difficult to pick and he’s a fun-loving boy. A little trouble with language for him, but he’s been great. Easy in first six to score runs, but the last overs, it was stopping.”  21.34 IST: Innings break!! Gujarat Lions end up getting 135/8 in their allotted 20 overs with Suresh Raina top-scoring for his team with 75 runs.

The IPL debutants have won their two away matches against Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians. They also overcame fellow debutants Rising Pune Supergiants here by seven wickets. (Full IPL 2016 coverage)Gujarat, captained by Suresh Raina, have been guided by the heroics of Australian opening batsman Aaron Finch. The right-hander will be Hyderabad’s biggest danger as he has scores of 74, 50 and 67 not out respectively in the three matches so far.However, his opening partner, retired New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum hasn’t really fire yet, barring a 49 against Pune, while Raina has failed to convert starts of 20s and 30s into big ones. It could be a crucial game for McCullum as West Indian Dwayne Smith is waiting for his chance.Other batsmen in the team are wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik and all-rounders Dwayne Bravo and James Faulkner. The return of local star Ravindra Jadeja is yet to be confirmed as the all-rounder got married recently.Gujarat’s bowling is also strong and has delivered keeping its reputations in tact. Medium pacers Praveen Kumar, Dhawal Kulkarni, Bravo and Faulkner has been complemented well by spinners in the form of Shadab Jakati and Praveen Tambe.advertisementThey also have ace pacer Dale Steyn in their ranks and it will be interesting when Raina plays the South African.In the other camp, Indian opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan’s poor run has bee a worry for Hyderabad. The left-hander has scored 16 runs in the three games so far and Hyderabad definitely need him to end hid slump. He also had a poor World Twenty20 during which he scored 43 runs in four outing before being dropped for the semi-final against eventual champions West Indies. (Dhawan’s poor form not much of concern, says VVS Laxman)Captain David Warner has looked in very good touch with scores 90 and 58 in the three matches and the Australian’s performance is key to Hyderbad’s success.The middle order batsmen Eoin Morgan and Moises Henriques need to raise their game, while the performance of Deepak Hooda and Naman Ojha will be crucial against the tricky death-overs specialists Bravo and Kumar.Hyderabad have missed the experience and all-round capability of Yuvraj Singh, who is nursing an injury, as did New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson.In the bowling department, however, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Bangladeshi left-armer Mustafizur Rahman have ensured that Hyderabad don’t miss veteran Ashish Nehra, who injured his groin during the opening game against RCB on April 12.Spinners Bipul Sharma and Karn Sharma will face a big task in containing Gujarat batsmen, along with the medium pace of Barinder Sran and Henriques.last_img read more

Young Smokers Invited to Open Casting Call

Feb. 6-11: New Glasgow, Highland Square Mall Feb. 14–17: Antigonish, St. FX University Feb. 21–24: Sydney, Mayflower Mall Feb. 28–March 3: Lunenburg, NSCC Campus March 7–10: Wolfville, Acadia University March 14-17: Halifax, location to be confirmed If you sneak off for a smoke by a dumpster, stand out in the freezing cold, or hide your smoking from family and friends, you might just land yourself a role in a new series of television ads currently in the works for Nova Scotia Health Promotion. The ads will feature young Nova Scotians telling their stories about the lengths they will, and have to go to have a smoke. An open casting call throughout Nova Scotia was launched today, Feb. 6. “The best way to get our message out to young Nova Scotians who smoke is for them to hear it from others who are just like them,” said Health Promotion Minister Rodney MacDonald. “Smoking is becoming harder and less appealing and we hope young people will see themselves in these ads and decide that they have good reason to quit.” The idea came while researching the current campaign. “We talked to young smokers about the lengths they must go and suddenly we started hearing all kinds of stories,” said Steve Machat, manager of tobacco control for Nova Scotia Health Promotion. “These stories provide valuable insight into the real-life situations smokers experience.” Mr. Machat said it’s important for people to know that help is available for quitting. He pointed out that five years ago, 30 per cent of Nova Scotians smoked and today it has dropped to 20 per cent. While this is good news, rates among young adults remain high and this campaign hopes to change that. Similar to past anti-smoking campaigns, this campaign will not focus on the health effects of tobacco use, nor will it preach quitting. The campaign will share real stories about the realities of smoking for young people and will invite young people to think about their own smoking habit and come to their own conclusions about quitting. A kiosk will travel throughout Nova Scotia in the next few weeks, visiting the following locations:last_img read more

Russian plane evacuated due to smell two hospitalised

first_imgMoscow: Two people were hospitalised Friday after an Armenia-bound plane was evacuated in Moscow following a strange smell and smoke in the cabin, the airline and airport officials said. The early morning flight operated by Russia’s Nordwind Airlines had to be aborted during takeoff after a “foreign smell” on board the Boeing 737, the company said. The crew used emergency slides to evacuate the passengers — 162 adults and 11 children. Citing the plane’s commander, Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport where the incident took place, said there was smoke in the cabin but no fire. Five passengers sought medical help and two were hospitalised, Sheremetyevo said. The plane was replaced but 28 passengers refused to continue their journey.

first_imgTennis icons and equal rights champions, Serena and Venus Williams have joined the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative (BJKLI) advisory board, it was announced today.In addition to their success on the tennis court, where they’ve captured a combined 30 Grand Slam singles titles, along with 14 Grand Slam doubles titles, and 4 Olympic gold medals each, the Williams sisters are strong advocates for equal prize money in the sport. They are also accomplished businesswomen and dedicated philanthropists. In 2016, Serena and Venus teamed up to establish The Williams Sisters Fund, which seeks to support various philanthropic efforts. Their first project, The Yetunde Price Resource Center, was created in honor of their late sister, Yetunde Price.Billie Jean King and the Williams sisters first met at a World TeamTennis clinic in Long Beach, California when Serena and Venus were young girls. They also worked together on the court when King was the Captain of the US Fed Cup and Olympic teams.“I’m thrilled to announce that my dear friends, Serena and Venus Williams, have joined the BJKLI advisory board,” said BJKLI Founder, Billie Jean King. “Without a doubt, they are two of the foremost athletes of their generation and true forces in challenging the public discourse on equality in sport and society. Serena and Venus will be tremendous additions to the BJKLI, and we are pleased to welcome them to our organization.”The BJKLI was founded in 2014 by Billie Jean King, her partner Ilana Kloss, and the global CEO advisory firm, Teneo, in an effort to move the needle forward on issues impacting equality and inclusion in the workplace. Since its inception, the BJKLI has partnered on industry-leading research and hosted a number of symposiums that have brought together diverse leaders from a range of industries to have honest conversations on the state of equality and how to broker tangible positive change.“It is truly an honor to join the advisory board of the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative,” commented Serena Williams on her appointment. “Billie Jean has been an inspiration to me on and off the court, and I am excited to play a role in shaping the future of the organization and driving its mission forward.”“Billie Jean has been a role model for me and I’ve always admired her spirit of giving,” said Venus Williams. “I’m delighted to join the advisory board of the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative, and I intend to continue to do everything I can until Billie Jean’s dream of equality is made real.”The release of the Battle of the Sexes film in 2017 marked a pivotal year for the BJKLI. The organization celebrated at a luncheon at New York’s iconic Rainbow Room. The film, which is centered on the story of the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, highlights the inequality that existed between men and women. It serves as a poignant reminder that while progress has been made in the fight to achieve equality for all, much remains to be done.Building on the momentum of last year, 2018 is a milestone year for both the BJKLI and its founder. The BJKLI recently announced a partnership with Starbucks and support for the company’s commitment to global gender pay equity, encouraging others to embrace the principles of equal pay and make change. In the fall, the BJKLI will celebrate its fifth anniversary, and King will celebrate her 75th birthday. Events are planned to mark both occasions.The Williams sisters join other notable advisory board members including:Billie Jean King; IIana Kloss (Co-founder, BJKLI); Paul Keary (Vice-Chair, BJKLI and Co-founder & COO, Teneo Holdings); Christiane Amanpour (Anchor and Chief International Correspondent, CNN); Jason Collins (Former NBA Player and Civil Rights Advocate); David Furnish (Chairman, Elton John AIDS Foundation & CEO, Rocket Entertainment Group); Margo Georgiadis (CEO, Mattel); Maritza Gomez-Montiel (Former Vice Chairman and Deputy CEO, Deloitte LLP); Sir Elton John; Jonathan Kraft (President, The Kraft Group); Robert McCann (Chairman, UBS Americas); Pat Mitchell (Founder & CEO, POW!

Objections blunt momentum for foreign lobbying law overhaul

first_imgWASHINGTON – A push to give the Justice Department more enforcement authority over the lucrative and at times shadowy world of foreign lobbying is stalled amid opposition from pro-business groups, nonprofits and privacy advocates.Organizations that range from the influential U.S. Chamber of Commerce to the National Association of Criminal Defence Lawyers have raised objections to legislation that would sharpen the teeth of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The law, enacted 80 years ago to expose Nazi propaganda, requires people to disclose when they lobby in the U.S. on behalf of foreign governments or political entities.While there’s bipartisan support for cracking down on unregistered foreign agents, several of the changes proposed in congressional bills could backfire by sweeping in a host of unintended targets, according to critics. That pushback has effectively kept the legislation from advancing as lobbying groups press for revisions.One of the most contentious provisions would eliminate a popular loophole that permits lobbyists representing foreign commercial interests to be exempt from the law, known as FARA. That shift, one business group has warned, could extend the rigorous disclosure requirements to U.S. subsidiaries of global companies, stigmatizing them as foreign agents even though they employ thousands of Americans.Congressional interest in fortifying the law comes in the aftermath of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and a special counsel investigation that’s drawn greater attention to the inner workings of international influence peddling.Most recently, Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, admitted in a plea deal that he’d failed to register as a foreign agent when he directed a lobbying operation for Ukrainian interests. Prosecutors said he concealed millions of dollars in income for the work from the IRS.Earlier this year, federal prosecutors unveiled an indictment against a Russian troll farm accused of interfering in the 2016 election through bogus Facebook posts that revealed how foreign parties can weaponize social media to influence public opinion.Yet criminal cases under FARA have been rare, with fewer than a dozen since 1966 as the Justice Department generally emphasized voluntary compliance over prosecution. Lawmakers supporting the bills say a 2016 inspector general’s report found that the department lacked the tools it needed to properly enforce FARA. A violation of the law is punishable by a fine or up to five years in prison.But the defence lawyers association and the Center for Democracy and Technology, a civil-liberties group, have declared that Fourth Amendment privacy protections would be undermined by a section of the bill that would expand the Justice Department’s power to investigate possible violations of the law.And an alliance of nongovernmental organizations called InterAction has urged lawmakers to repair vague and outdated provisions in the current law before passing a new one that strengthens the government’s hand. These groups fear that the law, if not repaired, could leave nonprofits open “to possible politicized enforcement actions and attack,” according to an open letter more than 40 members and partners of InterAction wrote earlier this year.The House version of the bill, sponsored by Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., seemed to be on the fast track to passage in the GOP-led House after a committee approved it in January by a comfortable margin. Yet eight months later, it hasn’t moved any further.Johnson described the objections as “overblown” and said he’s hopeful the full House will vote on his bill before the end of the year. The House is in recess and won’t return until after the Nov. 6 elections.“People in Washington are resistant to change,” Johnson said. “The longer we wait to enact these reforms the more critical they become.”An identical Senate bill, by Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, is bottled up in the Foreign Relations Committee. Grassley charged last year that there has been “rampant disregard” of the law by foreign agents and “lacklustre enforcement by federal authorities.”President Donald Trump invoked the law in a Sept. 13 tweet that attacked former Secretary of State John Kerry for meeting with Iran’s foreign minister, who was his main interlocutor during the Iran nuclear deal negotiations. Trump called the meetings illegal and questioned whether Kerry, now a private citizen, had registered as a foreign agent.But Trump’s broadside appeared to be off base. Meetings between a private U.S. citizen and foreign official are not against the law and not necessarily inappropriate or a violation of federal regulations. Further, FARA provisions don’t extend to activities conducted entirely overseas.“What we are currently seeing is a lot of confusion over the vagueness of FARA and concern that the breadth of the law can lead to its politicized use,” said Nick Robinson, legal adviser at the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law.Lobbyists that register under FARA must report specific meetings, phone calls and other details of contacts with members of Congress or federal officials to the Justice Department, which then posts the material online .The loophole targeted for elimination permits lobbyists representing foreign commercial interests to get an exemption provided that they register under the less-demanding Lobbying Disclosure Act. The quarterly reports filed with the House and Senate under the 1995 Lobbying Disclosure Act also are made public but require much less information.U.S.-based subsidiaries of international companies say the change may lead officials to avoid meeting with companies bound by FARA, putting them at a disadvantage with their domestic competitors.The legislation is supposed to target foreign governments or political parties but may “catch these companies in the crosshairs,” said Nancy McLernon, president of the Organization for International Investment, a lobbying group that represents the U.S. operations of global businesses including BP America, Honda North America, Nestle USA and Samsung.“No one wants to be labeled a foreign agent,” she said. “It sounds like a spy for a foreign government.”The legislation also would allow the Justice Department to demand that individuals and businesses turn over material relevant to federal investigations into alleged violations of FARA. Backers of the bill say the department’s FARA registration unit has long sought the use of administrative subpoenas to better enforce the law. The bill, they added, includes safeguards to ensure this authority isn’t abused.But the National Association of Criminal Defence Lawyers, in a sharply worded letter to the leaders of the House Judiciary Committee, said the investigative procedures proposed in the bill amount to an “expansion of unchecked law-enforcement authority.” The department would be able “to compel the production of documents and force the testimony of the targets of criminal investigations, without any prior showing of probable cause or court approval,” the association’s letter said.The letter was written in January. Spokesman Ivan Dominguez said the association’s position has not changed.___Contact Richard Lardner on Twitter at read more

Steelworkers accuse Alcoa of bargaining in bad faith during Quebec negotiations

first_imgTROIS-RIVIERES, Que. — With a negotiation deadline looming, the United Steelworkers union has filed a complaint with Quebec’s Administrative Labour Tribunal alleging bad faith bargaining by Alcoa Corp. at its aluminum smelter near Trois-Rivieres, where unionized workers have been locked out since January.Local union president Clement Masse says Alcoa is “not taking the negotiation process seriously,” claiming the company has reneged on previous commitments at the bargaining table.Alcoa is calling the union complaint “false and unfounded,” and says the mine’s management has been negotiating in good faith.In November, the Quebec government appointed a special mediation council, chaired by former premier Lucien Bouchard, with a settlement deadline set for Friday.Alcoa announced Wednesday it would cut output in half at its ABI smelter in Becancour, Que., due to the impact of an ongoing lockout.The Pittsburgh-based company curtailed two of the facility’s three pot lines in January after unionized workers rejected a company contract proposal.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

He said this when he met the UN country team headed by Una McCauley, the current UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative. Northern Province Chief Minister C V Wigneswaran noted he had differences of opinion with Subinay Nandy, the former United Nations Country Representative for Sri Lanka.Wigneswaran says the differences of opinion arose as Nandy had pushed him to fall in line with the Government. “We were not prepared to do so,” Wigneswaran said. Wigneswaran says the perceptions of the Northern Provincial Council were not taken into consideration by Subinay Nandy.“We had told Mr. Nandy that many matters that needed consideration by the UN at that time were not considered by him,” Wigneswaran said.

You have to be in the game. You have to keep making the case.”TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP) first applied for a U.S. presidential permit to build the $5.4-billion pipeline more than five years ago. The company is hoping a final U.S. State Department decision on the line will come early next year.The project has become a major focus for the U.S. environmental movement, which has raised concerns over the pipeline’s role in enabling oilsands development and its potential environmental impact in the event of a spill.In his speech, Hughes stressed the need to get access to markets not just to the south, but also to Canada’s east and west coasts by building pipelines.Alberta Premier Alison Redford is to make her fifth trip to Washington next week.

UN experts sound alarm on mounting rights concerns in Puerto Rico in

“The hurricane has aggravated the island’s existing dire situation caused by debt and austerity measures,” the experts said in a news release issued by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), calling conditions “alarming” for the 3.5 million residents in the US territory. “Thousands of people are displaced, with homes destroyed, and without any relief in sight. More than 80 per cent of the population, or close to 2.8 million people, continue to live without electricity. Few hospitals are functioning. There are allegations that the water available ¬–for those who have access to it – may be contaminated,” the experts elaborated. “With winter approaching, we call for a speedy and well-resourced emergency response that prioritizes the most vulnerable and at risk – children, older people, people with disabilities, women and homeless people,” they stressed. The Independent Expert on foreign debt and human rights, Juan Pablo Bohoslavsky, said that “even before Hurricane Maria struck, Puerto Rico’s human rights were being massively undermined by the economic and financial crisis and austerity policies, affecting the rights to health, food, education, housing, water and social security.” The experts maintained that even before the hurricane struck, nearly half of Puerto Rico’s population were living below the poverty line. “We can’t fail to note the dissimilar urgency and priority given to the emergency response in Puerto Rico, compared to the US states affected by hurricanes in recent months,” pointed out Leilani Farha, Special Rapporteur on the right to housing. “After a natural disaster, with around 90 thousand homes totally destroyed, people are at their most vulnerable. It’s the obligation of all levels of government to act to protect them, and to ensure that lives can return to some normality quickly. People need safe and adequate homes – temporary and long-term – with electricity, clean drinking water and sanitation facilities” she stressed. The Special Rapporteur on the right to food, Hilal Elver, highlighted: “Hurricane Maria wiped out most of the island’s crops. Banana and coffee – the Island’s most valuable exports – were the hardest hit. The population is facing immediate food shortages but also long-term consequences from the destruction of the entire agricultural infrastructure.” “We call on the United States and Puerto Rican authorities to remove regulatory and financial barriers to reconstruction and recovery,” they stated. “All reconstruction efforts should be guided by international human rights standards, ensuring that people can rebuild where they have lived and close to their communities. Reconstruction should aim to increase the resilience of Puerto Rico’s infrastructure, housing and hospitals against future natural disasters.” They also stressed the need for debt relief for the island, which filed for bankruptcy in May 2017 under the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Act. A federal court in San Juan has begun hearings over the biggest public debt restructuring in US history. Special Rapporteurs and independent experts are appointed by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a specific human rights theme or a country situation. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

Lettuce shortages and hosepipe ban as heatwave continues

Severn Trent said: “We’re set for another hot weekend, and, with demand for water really high, we’re producing millions of extra litres.”We’re asking customers to be careful with their water and for now avoid using the garden sprinkler or hosepipe.”Trent Water’s reservoirs were at 88 percent of capacity on June 18, down from 97 percent in April.The British Leafy Salad Growers Association (BLSGA) said the “soaring” temperatures were causing “havoc” for growers.It said the last week a record 18 million lettuces had been sold, about 40% more than last year and warned that that “when the mercury hits 30C lettuces can’t grow”.In good weather the crop normally grows rapidly, but at current high temperatures it effectively stops growing because it is “under stress”.Dieter Lloyd, spokesman for the BLSGA, said it “looks entirely likely that there will be shortages” from the “middle to end of next week”.One East anglian grower added: “I think that if the weather keeps going the way that it’s going absolutely we wouldn’t be in a position to fulfil the demand that we’re seeing with UK-grown produce.”The Met Office said the highest temperature on Friday was 32.5C (90.5F) in Porthmadog, in north-west Wales, and highs of 30C-31C (86F-87.8F) are expected on Saturday. The recent hot spell has put a strain on water firms, which have been pumping millions of litres into their systems. Farmers have warned of a shortage of lettuce while gardeners in England have been told not to use hosepipes as waters shortages deepen as a result of the heatwave.Lettuce and other vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower could be in short supply as high temperatures put the produce “under stress” and stop them growing.Growers say that with traditionally high summer demand for lettuce they may have to import salad leaves from the US to make up the shortfall, at a time when more than 90 per cent usually originates here.Farmers have also said there could be problems with the wheat and barley harvest if there is no rain in the next few weeks, as these crops depend on rainfall rather than irrigation.At the same time water companies have asked customers to conserve supplies by not using hosepipes or water sprinklers, with the heatwave continuing into the weekend.The first hosepipe ban began in Northern Ireland at 6pm on Friday, and on Saturday Severn Trent Water in the Midlands and United Utilities in the north west began to urge people not to use hosepipes and sprinklers. This compares with average temperatures for the time of year of 17C (62.6F) in the north and 21C (69.8F) in the south.Senior forecaster Marco Petagna said: “There’s a lot of fine weather still to come.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Revenue increase at Google driven by the number of paid clicks

first_imgWALL STREET WAS impressed by Google’s third-quarter revenue figures as declines in average ad prices were cancelled out by stats showing how frequently people are clicking on them.The numbers released yesterday impressed investors who had been fretting about a downturn in Google’s ad prices that began two years ago. Those concerns evaporated, at least temporarily, with a third-quarter performance that exceeded the analyst projections.Google’s ad prices are still sagging as marketers pay less for commercial pitches on mobile devices, but the number of revenue generating clicks on those ads is rising at a much faster rate.The equation resulted in a 36 per cent increase in Google’s earnings for the three months ending in September.Google’s stock surged 8 per cent to $959 in extended trading after the report came out. That leaves it poised to reach an all-time high in today’s regular trading session.The robust rally represents an abrupt about-face. As the overall stock market rose, Google’s shares had slipped slightly during the past three months.Google’s average ad price has now declined from the prior year in each of the last eight quarters, primarily because advertisers aren’t yet paying as much for mobile ads because the screens on smartphones and tablet computers are smaller than those on laptop and desktop computers.As more people rely on mobile devices to connect to Google’s search engine and other services, it’s driving down the company’s average ad price, or “cost per click.”In Google’s latest quarter, that measure fell 8 per cent from last year. That was worse than the 6 per cent drop in the previous quarter.But the number of so-called “paid clicks” on Google’s ads helped offset the lower prices in the third quarter. The clicking volume increased 26 percent from last year, an indication that Google’s data analysis is doing a good job matching ads with the interests of its services’ users.(CEO Larry Page will no longer partipate in revenue announcements. Pic: AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)Google Inc. earned nearly $3 billion, or $8.75 per share, during the three months ending in September. That compared to income of $2.2 billion, or $6.53 per share, at the same time last year.If not for its expenses for employee stock compensation, Google said it would have earned $10.74 per share. That figure topped the average estimate of $10.36 per share among analysts polled by FactSet.Revenue for the third quarter rose 12 per cent from last year to $14.9 billion. After subtracting commissions paid to Google’s ad partners, Google’s revenue stood at $11.9 billion, about $227 million above analysts’ predictions.Motorola Mobility, a mobile device maker that Google acquired for $12.4 billion last year, remains a financial drag. The division lost $248 million in the quarter, and still hasn’t made any money under Google’s ownership.In a mild surprise, Google CEO Larry Page disclosed that he doesn’t plan to regularly participate in the company’s quarterly earnings calls with analysts in the future.Page, 40, missed an earnings call last year because of an ailment on his vocal chords that made it difficult for him to talk. Although his voice remains raspy, Page didn’t mention that as a reason for skipping the calls. He said he wants to devote more time to running the company and helping Google’s engineers build great products.Read: Google exec grilled in UK over ‘devious’ use of Ireland to reduce tax >Read: 10 ways Google changed our lives >last_img read more

Merkel ally I told Enda Kenny that Ireland has no chance of

first_imgAN ALLY OF German chancellor Angela Merkel has said he told Taoiseach Enda Kenny that Ireland cannot use the new eurozone bailout fund to retrospectively recapitalise its banks.Dr Joachim Pfeiffer, economic policy spokesperson for Merkel’s party the Christian Democrats, has said that the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) can only be used for future banking debt issues and not legacy ones.He told today that he communicated this to Enda Kenny in a meeting yesterday but said the Taoiseach did not share his view.“He said the instrument was put in situ – that it can be used. But from my point of view it’s an instrument for the future,” Pfeiffer said of Kenny’s response.For over two years the Irish government has been pushing for the use of the ESM to retrospectively recapitalise its pillar banks, AIB and Bank of Ireland, which received some €25 billion in State funding at the height of the financial crisis.The government and Finance Minister Michael Noonan have repeatedly maintained that they will seek relief on legacy bank debt when the ESM is fully established later this year but these latest comments will do little to bolster the government’s case.Pfeiffer has been in Dublin this week attending events and meetings with the German-Irish Chamber of Industry and Commerce. He has repeatedly said in interviews that Ireland has no chance of using the ESM for legacy debt.“The ESM is an emergency instrument for the handling of the future problems that hopefully we are going to prevent,” he said this morning, adding “definitely not” when asked if it could be used for legacy debt.He said that every country has to deal with its own debt burden, saying it is not the responsibility of other eurozone nations to provide relief.He said: “Every country has to carry it’s own burden.

I tried again with the second; I’ve watched the opening episodes of the third Intellectually I know this is an amazing series (Matt Zoller Seitz eloquently makes the case for it at Vulture) As a visual document it’s the closest network TV gets to pure art It’s structurally daring and psychologically probing; its images are as rich as the flesh of a beast fed only acorns and oysters Butthis is not a thing a serious critic is supposed to sayI just don’t like it No more like I can’t like it I can admire it be awed by it but I can’t connect with it in any way that makes me want to tune in the next episode It leaves me cold I don’t find Lecter fascinating or even interesting nor Will Graham’s tortured empathy I know that it is a show about a killer who aestheticizes violence (though the violence often happens offscreen) and yet I can’t help but be skeeved by the aestheticization of violencethe endless searing chops pan reductions and unctuous juices (Sidebar: do you really serve man-flesh that rare Isn’t it more like pork) I simply find nothing to attach to in it It is a shimmering sheer glass wall that I lack the emotional suction cups to scale I don’t however assume that Hannibal‘s makers or its fans get off on cannibalism I don’t think they find suffering amusing And I resist the idea that depicting a thing equals endorsing that thing (a charge against TV going back to Tony Soprano and Archie Bunker) Hannibal isn’t cheaply dumbly exploitative (unlike say last season’s Stalker) See The Real-Life People Who Inspired Game of Thrones Characters From left: Cersei and Margaret of Anjou HBO;

move that has been challenged by several Senators in the high court even though the change has been approved by PU Syndicate According to the Senators who are opposing the move the request for a change in faculties is unjustified as the direction given by the high court in 2012 allowed Senators to change their faculties only on the completion of two years since being assigned the faculties
