Fort Worth race and culture task force asks for community input

Some in the audience dismissed the process, questioning not only the task force but even the choice of venue, the First Presbyterian Church. Tuesday’s gathering should have been held in a neutral place for blacks and non-church goers rather than a predominantly white church, said one speaker. He said it was irresponsible for the task force to try and address issues that relate to race and culture without addressing what a safe space is. He said all residents should feel welcome to join the discourse. Some speakers looked back at previous council meetings and said those meetings set a tone of dismissiveness on the part of city officials. Anrya Cano, a youth minister at Iglesia Bautista Victoria en Cristo, spoke of Price’s demeanor when protesters unsuccessfully appealed to the city council to join a court fight against a state law that allows police to ask questions about immigration status and citizenship. Cano said the meeting ended on a “sour note” because Price felt the need to state “she was not a racist and all night that was all she heard.”She said Price “didn’t care to hear the voices of hurt, the voices of fear.” Other speakers shared Cano’s sentiment. Another recalled that during a prior forum centered around race when residents voiced their concerns, Price referred to her constituents’ complaints as a “b—- fest.”  The speaker felt that this might make some residents hesitant to speak up.Another speaker said that minorities don’t always feel included in Fort Worth’s prosperity. And added the saying “the Fort Worth way” only applies to a select group of people. The speaker used the term mobilization to portray the distribution of wealth in Fort Worth and “how it appears that there is only one group of people that are moving forward.” The resident used the increasingly popular areas such as West 7th and Magnolia Street as examples of gentrification. She said although she’s a patron at the facilities, she doesn’t see people who look like her.The 23-member task force was created by the city council in August to develop a resolution for issues related to race and culture in Fort Worth. They will advise Mayor Price, City Manager David Cooke and the Fort Worth City Council on ways to promote racial and cultural equity.  Bernice Ogbondahhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/bernice-ogbondah/ Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Listen: Ball Don’t Lie: The Closer ReddItlast_img read more

Related Articles About Author: Brian Honea Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Results were mixed for some of the nation’s biggest banks when they released earnings statements earlier in the week: Citigroup and Bank of America both reported net income losses, while JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo reported big gains.New York-based investment bank Goldman Sachs reported a slight year-over-year decline in Q4 2014 net earnings, but for the whole year of 2014 the firm reported a slight uptick from 2013, according to the firm’s Q4 and year-end earnings statement released on Friday.Goldman Sachs’s net earnings for 2014 were $8.48 billion on $34.53 billion in revenues, compared to a net income of $8.04 billion on $34.21 billion in revenues for all of 2013. Diluted earnings per share rose from $15.46 in 2013 to $17.07 in 2014. The firm was first worldwide in announced and completed mergers and acquisitions for 2014, having advised on announced transactions valued at a combined $1 trillion. Net revenues on investment banking for 2014 totaled $6.46 billion, the second-highest annual total in the firm’s history and an increase from $6.0 billion for 2013.”We are pleased with our performance during a year characterized by mixed global economic and financial conditions,” said Lloyd C. Blankfein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The depth of our global client franchise and our continued discipline on expenses and capital management produced a solid return for our shareholders. Looking ahead, we see evidence of a continued pick up in momentum for the global economy that will improve the opportunity set for 2015.”For Q4 2014, Goldman Sachs reported a net income of $2.17 billion on $7.69 billion in revenues, down slightly from the net earnings of $2.33 billion on $8.78 in revenues for the same quarter a year earlier.For Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities Client Execution, Goldman Sachs reported net revenues of $8.46 billion for 2014, a 2 percent decrease from 2013. The minor decline can be attributed to slightly lower net revenues in interest rate products and mortgages, combined with significantly lower rates for credit products, offset by higher rates in both commodities and currency (significantly higher in the case of commodities). Credit products, interest rate products, and mortgages experienced generally low levels of activity in 2014 due to economic uncertainty.

Fitch Rates Nationstar’s U.S. RMBS

The affirmed ratings of Mr. Cooper is reflective of the company’s focus on operational enhancements, customer experience as well as experienced senior management, Fitch said in a statement. Given that a company’s financial status is a component of Fitch’s servicer rating analysis, the ratings agency’s financial institutions reviewed Mr. Cooper’s financial statements for internal assessment. However, the release stated, “Fitch does not publicly rate the credit and financial strength of Mr. Cooper.”The ratings were based on: —U.S. residential primary servicer rating for subprime product at ‘RPS2-‘—U.S. residential primary servicer rating for special servicing at ‘RSS2-‘—U.S. residential primary servicer rating for alt-a product at’RPS2-‘—U.S. residential primary servicer rating for master servicing at ‘RSM2+’Mr. Cooper completed a merger with WMIH Corp.(Washington Mutual, Inc.) on July 31, 2018, acquiring ownership from Fortress Investment Group, followed by an acquisition of the loan origination and servicing business of Pacific Union Financial with a scheduled closing in first-quarter 2019, bringing in $25 billion of loan servicing and an average annual loan origination production of over $10 billion, consisting of correspondent and warehouse channels.The affirmed ratings also elucidate on the company’s ‘Project Titan’ initiative to better align loan originations and servicing process flows and reduce cost. The company’s three lines of risk management framework across the loan servicing enterprise comprise continuous risk control self-assessment, governance and oversight functions, and internal audit. Internal audit results were satisfactory overall; however, Fitch analysts noted a continued opportunity for improvement in certain areas, which was taken into account in the rating assessment.There were no instances of material noncompliance identified in the Reg AB report for the year ended December 31, 2017.  Mr. Cooper’s customer service calls are routinely monitored for quality and compliance and the company engages a third party to conduct extensive customer feedback surveys to measure borrower satisfaction scores. Mr. Cooper’s call center performance metrics compare favorably with their industry peers, the ratings indicated. As of September 30, 2018, Nationstar serviced approximately 2.9 million loans with an unpaid principal balance (UPB) of $478 billion and was master servicer on 275,000 loans with an unpaid principal balance of $49.1 billion.

Blogger challenges Rightmove over agent’s ‘ghost’ rental property listings

first_img A blogger has highlighted over the weekend how reluctant the UK’s industry regulators are to deal with apparent ‘ghost’ rental properties on Rightmove.It details how late last year one branch of a leading London estate agent was suspected of re-listing properties that had already been let.After being contacted, Rightmove blamed the problem on a technical hitch within the agency’s property software, and that the portal had removed them manually.The blogger’s unnamed source, which includes screenshots of both Rightmove’s and Portico’s listings, also presented the information to local and national Trading Standards but was told the issue related to lettings and therefore could not be investigated.The re-listed properties were also referred to the Advertising Standards Authority, which treated the adverts as an informal issue and declined to launch a full investigation.Rightmove replyIn a letter issued by the portal concerning the re-let rental properties, one of its data quality team says: “Following feedback on how property’s update through the agent’s software to Rightmove, I have raised this directly with the agent’s software provider.“It has been found from our own technical investigations that the properties were being removed internally by the agent but were not coming off Rightmove.“The software provider has been testing this and confirmed the technical issue that they are causing the agent to have.”Rightmove says in the blog that it is now monitoring Portico’s listings to ensure the problem does not re-occur.Portico has been contacted by The Negotiator but has not to date replied to the points made in the blogger.  Portico Rightmove April 8, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

BREAKING NEWS: EPD Press Conference-Money Used in 2018 To Fight Gang Activity

first_imgAmanda PorterReporter and Anchor for 44News FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Officials say money will be allocated in 2018 to fund a gang task force in Evansville after recent violent crimes lead the city into the New Year.The gang task force will be split into two units, an intelligence unit, and an outreach unit with out reach programs where EPD meets with parents and kids likely, or known to partake in gang activity in an effort to prevent the kids from becoming apart of the criminal justice system, or victims of crimes themselves.Mayor Winnecke, Evansville Police Chief Bolin, and the Vanderburgh County Sheriff David Wedding all came together in a press conference to talk about what the city plans to do about violent crimes.Sheriff Wedding says there has been 19 murders in Evansville in 2017 alone, with 14 being killed with a gun.Evansville Police Chief Bolin says the department will continue building relationships with community outreach programs such as Coffee with a Cop.Chief Bolin says the shot spotter, a device alerting the public to gun shots fired in the area, shows violent crimes have increased and the suspects are getting younger and younger.That’s why in 2018, Mayor Winnecke says money will go towards improving the gang task force.“We have additional resources allocated to the gang task force, and those officers charged specifically with getting people who have gun, and drug, and gang activity background off the streets, that’s the biggest difference. this new allocation of resources will be dedicated to getting those people off the streets, and that is where we think we can make the biggest dent in reducing the number of violent crimes and murders in the community.”Officials says neighborhood watch groups can request officers to their neighborhoods, but the list is long.In 2017, E-P-D has responded to 827 shots fired calls and taken more than 480 guns off the street.Chief Bolin says these numbers shows how proactive the department is in getting guns, and violent criminals off the street.44News will have more details, and specifics of the conversation later tonight at 6 pm.last_img read more

Umphrey’s McGee Returns To NYC’s Central Park Summer Stage After 8 Years [Photos]

first_imgSetlist: Umphrey’s McGee | Central Park Summer Stage | New York, NY | 7/7/2017Set One: October Rain > Bridgeless, Miss Tinkle’s Overture, 2×2, Example 1 > Dump City > BridgelessSet Two: Plunger > North Route > Utopian Fir > Driven To Tears, Preamble > Mantis > The Triple Wide > MantisEncore: Rocker Pt. 2 (with Isaac Teel on percussion) Load remaining images Yesterday, Umphrey’s McGee and Aqueous took to New York City for a performance at Central Park Summer Stage. The show marked Umphrey’s third performance at the outdoor venue, with the last time falling way back in the summer of 2009. Ahead of Umphrey’s two-set headlining show, Aqueous warmed up the crowd. Despite the relatively short time allotment of 30 minutes, Aqueous tore through their performance, with an extensively jammed two-song set of “Second Sight” and “Kitty.” Following Aqueous’s opening performance, Umphrey’s McGee took the stage for two fiery sets following a bumpy start.Umphrey’s McGee Invites Jen Hartswick, Roosevelt Collier, And Snarky Puppy Members At Red Rocks Run [Video/Photos]After the opening number of “October Rain,” Umphrey’s started in on “Bridgeless,” which eventually was stopped as the group hit the song’s first verse. Issues with Ryan Stasik’s bass ultimately led to Umphrey’s leaving the stage twice early on in the show as the technical difficulties were resolved. However, once solved, the group more than made up for the disturbance, with a scorching rendition of “Miss Tinkle’s Overture” featuring note-perfect guitar harmonies from Jake Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss that ultimately served as a true masterclass in their signature dual-guitar attack.While the Summer Stage performance was mostly a Jake-centric show, the next number, “2×2,” gave Bayliss his opportunity to shine, delivering a powerful solo at the end of the number. Coming out of “Example 1,” “Dump City” served as a jam vehicle of the first set, with the song containing a wild and heavy jam that ultimately served as the set’s improvisational climax as it easefully and expertly weaved between metal and funk. With the group wholly dialed in, Umphrey’s seamlessly dropped back into the final portion of “Bridgeless” to close out the set, with the second take on the track showing the band in proper form and on fire.Watch Joel Cummins From Umphrey’s McGee Join Colorado’s Eminence Ensemble At Electric ForestWith the first set featuring an old-school setlist with all the songs being written to 2004 or prior, set two kept in line with the first set’s throwback song selection, starting things off with a “Plunger” opener. As the overwhelming heat of the day subsided, a much-welcomed downpour rolled in during “North Route” and “Utopian Fir,” the latter of which contained teases of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” that worked up the crowd into a frenzy during the extreme rain. After a rendition of The Police’s “Driven 2 Tears” to close out the second set’s first four-song sequence, Umphrey’s McGee kicked off the second non-stop ending song sequence with “Preamble.” The song was jammed through to “Mantis,” which kicked off the set-closing sandwich by way of “The Triple Wide.” To end the show on truly a high note, the group invited percussionist Isaac Teel of Tauk to the stage for Umphrey’s encore of “The Rocker, Pt. 2.”You can check out the full setlist from last night below, as well as check out photos from the Summer Stage performance, courtesy of Chris Capaci of Capacity Images.

Bugs Biting Lawns

first_imgHomeowners can prevent chinch bug invasions, at least to a degree. Sparks said St. Augustine is chinch bugs’ favorite grass, but they’ve also been found incentipede and Bermuda grass. * Don’t overfertilize. That practically invites chinch bugs into a buffet. “They lovelush, green lawns,” Sparks said. Many people mistake chinch bug damage for mowing too closely or drought damage.Chinch bugs inject a toxin into the grass that kills it quickly. That damage quicklyspreads as the chinch bugs move from the dead grass to other areas in the lawn. * Get rid of thatch. Thick thatch on the turf provides ideal places for chinch bugs tolive while they feast on your lawn. Spittlebugs’ damage is usually more sporadic within a yard. “It’s not necessarily goingto kill out the turf,” she said. “But you can get some browning-out and dying.” Start treating spittlebug damage by mowing your grass closely. The mowing actionpicks up the masses and mixes them with the clippings. Collect the clippings anddispose of them. A properly maintained compost pile will kill any nymphs in theclippings. To find chinch bugs, part the grass and look closely for a fast-moving insect aboutone-sixteenth of an inch long. These tiny insects reproduce fast. That’s part of whytheir damage spreads so quickly. Sparks said spittlebugs’ damage is quickly apparent. “You’ll see small patches dyingout and little frothy masses,” she said. Ah, summertime. The hot days, the dry grass. Sometimes the dying grass. But don’tconfuse grass dying from heat and lack of water with grass killed quickly by tinyinsects’ attack. Both insects use piercing mouthparts to suck the sap from the grass. That loss of liquidand nutrients can cause grass to die in isolated areas. Apply approved pesticides to treat either chinch bugs or spittlebugs. Sparks said towater your lawn first, especially if the grass is already drought-stressed. Then apply anapproved insecticide to the entire lawn and let it dry. The remaining insecticide is mosteffective if left on the grass where it kills both the immature and adult insects. Don’t forget, though, that these are insects, Sparks said. Look for spittlebugs near the soil line of the grass. The insect nymph will be inside anyfrothy masses you might find. “We estimate that lawn care professionals and homeowners spend about $4 million peryear attempting to control and replace the damage caused by chinch bugs,” saidUniversity of Georgia scientist Beverly Sparks. “With spittlebugs, that drops down to about $2.7 million (spent to control them andrepair their damage),” said Sparks, a research and extension entomologist with theUGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “They multiply quickly, and the immature insects feed with the adults,” she said. “Asthey finish eating in one area of grass and it dies, they move out into a fresh area. Andthe damage expands across the yard.” Chinch bugs and spittlebugs invade yards and grassy areas all over the Southeast. “The adults have wings, and new ones can fly into your yard from neighbors’ yards,”she said. “If you find these in your yard, chances are your neighbor has them, too. Andall of you need to coordinate your control programs for them.”last_img read more

Governor Douglas addresses congressional committee about fiscal conditions of states

first_imgVermont Governor Jim Douglas, chairman of the National Governors Association, testified today before the Commercial and Administrative Law Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee.  The hearing, titled State Taxation: The Impact of Congressional Legislation on State and Local Government Revenues, focused on the impact of federal actions on state and local taxing and spending decisions. Douglas told the panel that, unlike the federal government, states need to balance their budgets. To that goal, congressional attempts to stimulate the economy must keep in mind that the states will play a vital role in the recovery effort and that Congress must first “do no harm.” Douglas went on to say that the states as a whole saw a 7.5 percent drop in revenues in the last fiscal year. And even though the downturn started in late 2007, the negative cumulative effect on state budgets will continue through 2010 and 2011.”What these budgets show,” Douglas told the committee, “is that from a state fiscal standpoint, the worst is yet to come.”Governor Douglas’ Remarks:Testimony of Vermont Governor Jim DouglasChair, National Governors AssociationBefore the House Judiciary CommitteeSubcommittee on Commercial and Administrative LawU.S. House of RepresentativesState Taxation: The Impact of Congressional Legislation on State and LocalGovernment RevenuesApril 15, 2010Chairman Cohen, Ranking Member Franks, and members of the Subcommittee, thankyou for inviting me to testify today. On behalf of the nation’s governors and theresidents of my home state of Vermont, I appreciate you holding this hearing to explorethe fiscal condition of states and the effect Congressional action can have on our fiscalhealth.The bottom line is this: decisions about state revenue systems and state taxation shouldbe made by elected officials in the states. This principle is particularly important now asstates are working to emerge from a recession that has reduced state revenues to pre-2006 levels. Unlike the federal government, states must balance their budgets. Thisrequires states to make up for lost or decreased revenues by either cutting services andspending or raising revenues. Both actions, cutting services or raising taxes, can slowrecovery. As this committee, and Congress as a whole, considers legislation to spur theeconomy, create jobs or promote competitiveness, it should do so with an eye towardsthe critical role states play in promoting recovery. More specifically, legislation thatwould impact state taxes or taxing authority should adhere to the principles of “do noharm,” preserve flexibility, be clear and find the win-win so that states may continue tomanage their fiscal futures.Fiscal Condition of StatesThe fiscal condition of states started deteriorating rapidly when the recession began atthe end of 2007. In fact, repeatedly since the downturn started, states have had tolower revenue projections and make spending adjustments to meet balanced budgetrequirements. Governors in most states are in the process of finalizing or have justcompleted their budgets for fiscal year 2011, and in some cases 2012. What thesebudgets show is that from a state fiscal standpoint, the worst is yet to come.Previous downturns have demonstrated that the worst budget years for a state are thetwo years immediately after the national recession is declared over. This lag occursbecause state revenues continue to decline and state expenditures for safety netprograms continue to rise until after unemployment levels peak. However, unlike therecession earlier this decade, states’ recovery from the current recession may be prolonged,with most economists projecting a slow and potentially jobless nationalrecovery. Moreover, even when recovery begins, states will continue to strugglebecause they will need to replenish retiree pension and health care trust funds andfinance maintenance, technology, and infrastructure investments that were deferredduring the crisis. They will also need to rebuild contingency or rainy day funds and bothimplement and eventually pay a portion of the Medicaid expansion under national healthcare reform. Taken together, these facts mean that many states will not fully recoverfrom this recession until much later this decade.The Current Situation – The recent national economic downturn started in December2007 and likely ended around September 2009, making it the deepest and longestdownturn since the Great Depression. The slowdown directly affected state taxcollections, which according to the Rockefeller Institute declined for five consecutivequarters beginning in the last quarter of calendar year 2008 and extending through all of2009, with reductions of 3.9, 11.6, 16.4, 10.9 and 4.1 percent respectively. Thesefindings are consistent with the NGA/NASBO Fiscal Survey of States estimate that staterevenues declined 7.5 percent in fiscal year (FY) 2009, which for most states endedJune 30, 2009.Similarly, Medicaid spending, which accounts for about 22 percent of state budgets,averaged 7.9 percent growth in FY 2009, its highest rate since the end of the lastdownturn six years ago. Medicaid enrollment is also spiking, with projected growth of6.6 percent in FY 2010 compared with 5.4 percent in 2009.What these falling revenues and increasing expenditures create are budget gaps –holes in state budgets that must be reconciled to meet balanced budget requirements.The Fiscal Survey of States shows states closed budget gaps of $72.7 billion in FY2009 and $89.8 billion in FY 2010. This includes tax and fee increases of $23.9 billion in2010. Even with cuts and tax increases, states continue to experience new budgetshortfalls including more than $18.9 billion remaining for FY 2010, $55 billion projectedfor 2011 and $61 billion projected for 2012. All told, the combined remaining budgetgaps that must be filled for 2010 through 2012 equal $136 billion.For fiscal year 2011, Vermont faces a shortfall of approximately $154 million – roughly14% out of a General Fund budget of approximately $1.1 billion. In just over a year,more than 10,000 jobs have been lost and last year median family income fell nearly$2,000 from the year before. Although Vermont’s unemployment rate is among thelowest in the nation, our workforce is shrinking and too many are underemployed. As aresult, state revenues are $20 million below 2006 levels and a staggering $100 millionbelow where they were at the height of the economic bubble in 2008.While Vermonters have found it harder to pay the bills, our General Fund programshave seen unsustainable increases and new pressures. Demand for human serviceswill grow by $50 million, pension contributions are projected to increase by $29 million,and $75 million in federal recovery funds relied on for this year will no longer beavailable. With revenues not expected to return to pre-recession levels until 2013, ourfiscal crisis extends far beyond today. Without sustainable reductions, the fiscal 2012shortfall will balloon to over a quarter billion dollars – more than we spend on economicdevelopment, environmental protection, public safety, and higher education combined.Governors are making and have already made tough but necessary decisions toaddress these daunting challenges, including streamlining services, cutting programs,and reducing the state workforce. In Vermont, we are getting close to the end of ourlegislative session and we’re debating controversial but necessary proposals such asalternatives to incarceration for non-violent offenders, and I’m fighting hard to resistlegislative proposals to increase taxes on struggling manufacturers.The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) – State fiscal conditions wouldhave been worse if not for the passage of ARRA. Of the $787 billion in ARRA funds,about $246 billion came to or through states in more than 40 programs. Most important,the $87 billion in Medicaid funds and the $48 billion in state stabilization funds wereflexible and allowed states to offset some planned budget cuts and tax increases.Specifically, the Medicaid funds allowed states greater flexibility to manage state fundsallocated for Medicaid while the stabilization funds targeted help for elementary,secondary, and higher education, which represents about one-third of state spending.Without these funds, state budget cuts and tax increases would have been much moredraconian. In fact, given the ongoing fiscal problems in states, 47 governors recentlysigned a letter supporting a two-quarter extension of ARRA’s enhanced FMAP funding.Such an extension would help states avoid some cuts or tax increases that wouldotherwise be necessary to balance 2011 budgets.My own state of Vermont has received more $700 million dollars in Recovery Actdollars; $500 million of which was paid out before December 31, 2009 and helpedsupport more than 2,000 jobs.The Recovery Period – While there is still uncertainty regarding the shape of therecovery, there is a growing consensus that it will be slow. Numerous studies projectthat state revenues will likely not recover until 2014 or 2015. A recent forecast by MarkZandi at Economy.com showed that the national unemployment rate, which straddled5.5 percent during 2001–2007, will not attain that level again until 2014. Similarly,Zandi’s latest forecast indicated that state revenues will not return to the 2008 level inreal terms until FY 2013.Deferred Investments – Even when recovery begins in the 2014–2015 period, states willbe faced with a huge “over-hang” in needs and will have to accelerate payments intotheir retiree pension and health care trust funds, as well as fund deferred maintenanceand technology and infrastructure investments. They will also have to rebuildcontingency or rainy day funds. All of these needs were postponed or deferred duringthe 2009–2011 period and will have to be made up toward the end of the decade.According to a 2007 Pew Center on the States report, states have an outstandingliability of about $2.73 trillion in employee retirement, health, and other benefits comingdue over the next several decades, of which more than $1 trillion is unfunded.What all of this means is states will continue to struggle over the rest of this decadebecause of the combination of the length and depth of this economic downturn, theprojected slow recovery, and the additional Medicaid responsibilities. Even after statesbegin to see the light, they will face the “over-hang” of unmet needs accumulated during the downturn.With states having entered the recession in 2008, revenue shortfallspersisting into 2014, and a need to backfill deferred investments into core statefunctions, states will need maximum flexibility to manage their fiscal systems in order tofully emerge from the current recession.Principles for federal legislation related to state taxationGovernors believe federal action should favor the preservation of state sovereigntywhen legislating or regulating activity in the states. This is particularly true when itcomes to actions that affect the ability of states to manage their revenue systems. Theindependent ability of states to develop and manage their own revenue systems is abasic tenet of our federal system. Therefore, the federal government should avoidlegislation and regulations that would serve to preempt or prohibit, either directly orindirectly, sources of state revenues or state taxation methods that are otherwiseconstitutional.Since adoption of the U.S. Constitution, Congress has generally respected statesovereignty with regard to state taxes. Unfortunately, that trend has begun to changeover the last few years as Congress has increasingly restricted the rights of states todetermine their own tax structure. Recent legislative examples include the moratoriumon the taxation of charges for Internet access, prohibiting the taxation of nonresidentpension income, and the accelerated elimination of the state estate tax credit.As this committee considers whether to take up legislation related to state taxation,governors encourage the committee to review all proposals in light of the followingprinciples:• Do no harm: Legislation dealing with state taxing authority should notdisproportionately reduce existing state revenues. This principle is especiallyimportant at a time when states are cutting core services to meet balancedbudget requirements. Federal unfunded mandates or limits on state authority willonly exacerbate the fiscal problems states currently face.• Preserve flexibility: The fiscal crisis is forcing all governors and states to askfundamental questions about the role of government. These questions will leadto changes at the state level that could have long-term, positive effects on thedelivery of services, modernizing revenue systems and holding governmentaccountable. States should not be hindered in their pursuit of these reforms byfederal legislation that restricts a states authority to act.• Be clear: Federal legislation, especially in the context of state taxation, should beclear to limit ambiguity or the need for expensive and time-consuming legislation.• Find the win-win: The goal of all legislation should be to find a balance thatimproves the standing of all stakeholders. Especially in times such as thesewhere states are struggling with unprecedented budget gaps, Congress shouldonly consider legislation related to state taxation or state taxing authority that isbeneficial to all stakeholders.Conclusion:Congress, through its authority under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution,has broad authority to regulate state taxation. The key questions are when and howshould that authority be used. Governors believe that the ability of states to developand manage their fiscal systems is a core element of sovereignty – one that should notbe interfered with unless absolutely necessary to preserve interstate commerce. Thecurrent fiscal condition of states underscores this basic principle and should heightenCongressional consideration of the impact proposed legislation could have on states.Thank you for the opportunity to testify before you today. On behalf of my fellowgovernors, I look forward to working with you and would be happy to take anyquestions.Source: Douglas’ office. 4.15.2010last_img read more

Ms. Darling-Hammond, a veteran education researcher and policymaker in arenas like desegregation, school finance and teacher preparation, was considered a contender for Mr. Biden’s secretary of education, but took herself out of the running, saying she was committed to her work in California.The transition team’s strong representation from former Obama-era officials and teachers unions has been met with mixed reactions.In announcing the team, a transition official said its members had “deep backgrounds in key policy areas” with “a diversity of perspectives critical to addressing America’s most urgent and complex challenges.”- Advertisement – “There’s a lot of work to be done, but it will be nice to know there’s an education secretary who’s thinking about how to protect students from predatory schools instead of the other way around,” said Aaron Ament, the president of the National Student Legal Defense Network, which has sued the department for its efforts to roll back Obama-era rules on loan forgiveness and consumer protection.The team Mr. Biden has named to help the Education Department through the transition signaled the direction he intends to take.- Advertisement –center_img Keri Rodrigues, the president of the National Parents Union, which represents low-income parents and parents of color, said the composition of the team made her worried that the Biden administration might stack the government with people who are “interested in fortifying the status quo that has been failing so many of our kids.”“This is the biggest table right now,” she said of the transition team, “and I don’t see parent groups, family groups, community groups present.” She added, “It seems we’re back to the same old, ‘We’re going to do things to you, not with you.’”last_img read more

Homeless taste ‘luxury’ at Geneva hotel during pandemic

first_imgAt the hotel in the heart of Geneva’s Old City, 20 rooms have been provided to homeless women, while 11 have been given to unaccompanied minors like Rahmani who have no access to seeking asylum in Switzerland.”It happened fairly naturally,” hotel director Alain Meuwly told AFP, sitting in the breakfast room, where tables have been spaced far apart and equipped with only one chair each.When Switzerland began cancelling all public events and closing restaurants and shops to halt the spread of the virus in early March, “more than 90 percent of our bookings were cancelled,” he said.The hotel, a profit-driven business run by the Salvation Army, was empty. Topics : ‘Total comfort’ Rahmani is certainly happy with the arrangement. After making a treacherous boat crossing from Algeria to Spain three years ago, making his way to the streets of Paris, and finally to Geneva last month, he said hotel life was “total comfort.””We don’t have to think about food, we don’t have to worry where to sleep, or if we will be cold,” he said.”I’d like to stay here forever.”Geneva provides migrants who are unaccompanied minors with special provisions, often officially registering them with organizations and giving access to food and shelter.Hafida Marsli, a 42-year-old woman who made her way from Morocco to Switzerland a decade ago in search of a better life only to eventually find herself homeless in Geneva, agreed.”It is really good here,” she told AFP, adjusting her headscarf. “It’s all good.”  Valerie Spagna, who heads the Salvation Army’s night shelter program for the homeless in Geneva, said there was a world of difference from the regular shelters, where people can enter in the evening to sleep in large dormitories or shared rooms, and have to leave early in the morning.At the hotel, “they can finally relax, take care of themselves, sleep as long as they want,” she told AFP. “They have finally gotten a small taste of a more normal life.”She said what she feared most now was “the return to reality” once the homeless residents are asked to leave on June 1.”They are going to have to go back to real life at some point,” she said.”It is going to hurt.”  Sofiane Rahmani can hardly believe his luck. After several years of living on the street and bouncing between shelters, he now has his own hotel room, personal bathroom and all meals provided.”It’s true luxury,” the 16-year-old Algerian illegal migrant told AFP at the three-star Bel Esperance Hotel in Geneva.Last month, as the hotel faced a cascade of cancellations, it decided to turn over the entire establishment to house homeless women and youths and help get them off the streets during the COVID-19 pandemic.center_img At the same time colleagues within the Christian charity told him they were looking for safe ways to house some of the estimated 1,000 homeless people in Geneva. Good for business Switzerland, which to date has reported nearly 28,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and more than 1,100 deaths, does not have a national policy against homelessness, with each of the confederation’s 26 cantons implementing their own approaches.In Geneva, the Salvation Army and other organizations have long provided emergency overnight shelters with a few dozen beds, but never before anything with 24-hour service. Meuwly said the transformation process was quite simple.The hotel’s regular staff were all placed on temporary unemployment, and a team of social workers were brought in to accommodate the new residents, who will be allowed to stay until June 1. The dining area was spaced out, masks and disinfectant were provided and only one person was permitted per room.”Since this is a slightly different clientele we removed some gadgets that you would usually find in a three-star hotel room, like tablets and coffee-makers,” Meuwly acknowledged, stressing that the “comfort level is the same.””There are the same beds and bedding, TVs, and especially wifi. That is something everyone really seems to appreciate.”Ironically, the building served for more than 60 years as a shelter for vulnerable women, but in 1996 it was transformed into a hotel, which today offers elegant, plush rooms that during the high season can go for up to 600 Swiss francs ($620, 570 euros) a night.Meuwly said he was not worried that housing the homeless might harm business once the crisis ends.”Not at all,” he said, adding that he had received numerous messages from regular customers congratulating him for the initiative and asking how they could help.”I think it could even be an asset to the business.”last_img read more

Iceland further relaxes capital controls for pension funds

first_imgIcelandic pension funds will be able to invest ISK20bn (€141m) overseas over the first four months of 2016, after the country’s central bank further relaxed strict capital controls in place since 2008.The bank said the exemption, which applies to second and third-pillar funds, would be allocated to schemes based on their overall size and contribution levels as of the end of 2014.The bank added that the exemption would benefit the local economy, as it allowed the ISK2.9trn pension sector to diversify holdings, reducing the risk of instability when capital controls are completely lifted. A pension fund’s size will be given a weighting of 80%, while annual inflows will be given a weighting of 20% when deciding how much of the quota to allocate to individual funds. The split marks a slight change from the first ISK10bn exemption granted in July last year, when it was 70% in favour of total fund size.Gunnar Baldvinsson, managing director of €1.2bn pension fund Almenni, said the announcement pointed towards an improving Icelandic economy.“Foreign currency inflows in 2015 and a reduced uncertainty about the balance of payments following creditors’ approval of compensation proposals from the failed banks’ estates have created the scope to authorise pension funds to invest further in foreign-denominated financial instruments,” he said.LBI, the group managing the estate of Landesbanki following its collapse during the financial crisis, said this week it had settled all remaining accepted claims against the estate.Baldvinsson said he understood the central bank would be lifting investment restrictions “gradually”.“On the other hand,” he added, “we expect the [central bank’s] announcement to be the first of many to allow pension funds and other local investors to invest abroad for this year and the coming years, given that the current economic situation will not deteriorate significantly.”The Icelandic pension sector has been limited to investing in the domestic economy since the introduction of capital controls, put in place in the wake of the 2008 banking collapse.While domestic investment opportunities are available, such as last year’s financing of a silicon metal plant in the country’s North, pension investors have previously lamented the increased risk caused by such a geographically concentrated portfolio – with pension assets standing at 146% of Icelandic GDP, according to the OECD.The funds have channelled inflows into the mandatory system towards private equity and real estate but were also able to gain exposure to overseas currency through domestic bond issuances denominated in other currencies.last_img read more

GHB and Buddies Gym partner ahead of Pan American championships

first_imgTHE Guyana Hockey Board (GHB) has joined forces with Buddy’s Gym, located on Sheriff Street to allow the Guyana team unbridled access to the gym facilities ahead of the Pan American Indoor Championships.During a brief ceremony on Saturday at the Gym, President Philip Fernandes collected membership cards from the representative of the Gym for both the male and female teams to utilize the venue for the next six months.Speaking to the media, Fernandes said,” I think this is a very important occurrence for the Guyana National Hockey team. In the past, we have tried our best to prepare teams with the limited resources that we’ve had and we’ve had our challenges.“Preparing a top hockey team requires a lot of different aspects, not just technical and tactical training but also psychological competence and also speed, endurance training, strength, all these different things.”He noted that this time around, the partnership means that the teams will now take their endurance levels to greater levels than they have in the past, adding the GHB sees the sponsorship as an important one in forging champion teams.The teams have no easy task as they face several first world teams including the United States, Canada and Uruguay. Fernandes is aware of this but also underscored the importance of having a high quality facility to train at.Meanwhile, coach of the team, Dwayne Scott stated, “There’s a lot that goes into this. The contribution itself we cannot be anymore grateful for it and it will definitely help us to prepare mentally and physically for this tournament.”Guyana will come face to face with the best in the Western Hemisphere when they host the Pan American Indoor championships in October of this year. Apart from the US and Canada, Mexico, Barbados, Argentina and Trinidad and Tobago are in the Mens draw. Uruguay will send a female team.last_img read more

Americas Olympic Qualifier tentatively set for February/March 2021

first_img….GBA heads back to the ‘drawing board’WITH the Americas Boxing Confederation Olympic Qualifier tournament tentatively set for between February and March of 2021, Steve Ninvalle, president of the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA), said despite being disappointed that the initial event was postponed, they will head back to the drawing board as soon as the boxers return home from Cuba.Ninvalle had appeared on the last edition of NCN’s Sports on Tuesday show, where he also spoke about his association’s plans for amateur boxers, once the green light is given for the sport to return.Canada-based Taveena Kum is the lone female on Guyana’s five-member team for the Olympic Qualifiers.With the support of the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) and the Government of Guyana, the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) had dispatched Keevin Allicock, Desmond Amsterdam, Colin Lewis and Dennis Thomas for a three-month training stint in Cuba.Apart from the boxers based in Cuba, Canada-based Taveena Kum is the lone female on Guyana’s five-member team that was set to feature in the Qualifier which was scheduled for March 26 to April 4 in Argentina.However, things went downhill for the GBA, after the Americas Olympic Qualifier for boxing was cancelled when Argentina’s Government restricted international events in the country with immediate effect.Ninvalle related that the postponement was a set-back, more so financially, since the GBA will now have hit the reset button on every aspect of the boxers’ preparation.He also felt that with the amount of work done, Guyana was robbed of not seeing a boxer qualify for the Olympic Games.“The four boxers that we have in Cuba, they were trained to a peak; their mental strength was there to a peak and I think it would’ve been the first time that we would’ve had a qualifier for the Olympics in a very, very long time,” Ninvalle said.John Douglas, Guyana’s flag bearer for the 1996 Olympic Games, was the last boxer to represent the Golden Arrowhead at the IOC’s flagship event, where he lost in the first round of his light heavyweight clash with Germany’s Thomas Ulrich, who went on to claim bronze at the event.“We will have to see their (the boxers) mindset when they get back to Guyana, and it is my hope that maybe we wouldn’t have to send them out again; we can bring in the Cuban coach and we can have a camp right here (in Guyana), where we’ll have persons from the CARICOM region and we can have our boxers train right at home,” the long-serving GBA president reasoned.Meanwhile, Ninvalle reasoned that the GBA was only able to run off one of their many tournaments for the year before things came to a grinding halt because of COVID-19, and so far, things remain up in the air as it relates to when the sport will see a return.“We’ll have to wait and see when Guyana is reopened,” Ninvalle said during the interview, while adding that “as it is, our boxers have all been advised to do nothing in close proximity of each other. So they can run and they can shadow box, but there’s no sparring.”He added that the boxers will be “just training to keep fit, because they can’t train for a competition that they don’t know when it’s going to be held. So as soon as we have the green light, then we will put our plans in place; but if you ask me, I don’t expect any boxing to be held in Guyana within the next four months.last_img read more

Okpekpe Organisers Set to Host a World-class Race

first_imgOrganisers of the fifth edition of the Okpekpe international 10km road race say they are ready to organise a bigger and better event on Saturday in Okpekpe near Auchi in Edo State.Race Director of Organisation, Zakari Amodu, said wednesday that the first and only IAAF Bronze Label race in Nigeria will live up to its billing as one of the prestigious road races in the world.“Everything is set for a good race on Saturday,” begins Amodu. “We have covered all grounds necessary for a good race that will help us in our push to be a silver label race come next year. We have the required number of nations and elite athletes to fulfill the requirements for a bronze label race. We have all the materials we wanted for effective doping control including a doping station at the finish area in Okpekpe,” he said. “The IAAF have set requirements for us to follow as a bronze label event and I can tell you we have met all the requirements and have even moved several steps higher,” he continued. ‘What we are waiting for is just for the race day to be here so that we can put into practice all we have been doing in terms of keeping to the requirements.“The international body also requested that prize money offered to competitors, including bonuses for times achieved shall be equal for all competitors regardless of their nationality or gender – in other words prize money for places should be equal for men and women and for nationals of the host country and athletes of other nationalities. This we have also done where the prize money for the first eight finishers are the same for men and women,” Amodu explained and added that drinking/sponging and refreshment stations will be adequately staffed by competent personnel and that water and refreshments shall be provided free of charge for all participants on the course and at the finish area.Amodu also revealed that the Okpekpe race is much more than the race on the road.”The Okpekpe race is conceptualised as a way of promoting distance and endurance related races for our athletes. It could pass for a high altitude high performance training for our athletes who need such conditions to be able to train effectively to be able to challenge the East Africans,” he said and believes the race has also offered the local community a first hand feel of hosting an international event while enjoying some of the economic benefit that could come with it.“We have also used the race to showcase the excellent standard of infrastructure that has been provided by the government of Edo State,” stressed Amodu.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Women of Troy hit the road once again

first_imgUSC women’s volleyball head coach Mick Haley constantly emphasizes the importance of traveling well. It is no secret in the world of sport that success is hardest to achieve away from the friendly confines of home. The Women of Troy will be tested in that respect early and often this season, and if the team’s performance in last weekend’s season-opening tournament is any indication, those wins might not be so difficult to earn after all.Back for more · After missing part of last season due to an injury, junior middle blocker Hannah Schraer (14) is healthy again and hopes to better her impressive freshman year numbers (1.75 kills per set, .383 hitting percentage). – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanThe opening tournament went swimmingly for the Women of Troy, who received stellar contributions from all parts of their lineup in a 3-0 sweep last weekend. After a 3-1 defeat of Purdue in the season’s first match, the club recorded back-to-back sweeps of Western Kentucky and Alabama A&M to win their first pre-conference tournament of the 2013 campaign.USC will now hit the road for the second of three consecutive weekends, traveling to the Midwest to participate in the Marquette Challenge. The squad will open with a Friday doubleheader against TCU and Marquette, followed by a Saturday trip to DeKalb, Ill. to face off against Northern Illinois.“I think we can be pretty good. We did some things that we’ve been practicing, which is encouraging because [that means] we’re doing a good job teaching,” Haley said. “I got to play a lot of players, and we had two very good matches against Western Kentucky and Purdue, both ranked teams.”Fittingly, a highly touted member of USC’s latest youth movement paved the way in the opening match. Freshman outside hitter Ebony Nwanebu recorded a team-high 15 kills and eight blocks in a stellar debut performance.“Since this was my first tournament, I really wanted to come out and make a statement,” Nwanebu said. “Everyone on the team has been supportive, so that has helped a lot with my confidence.”Nwanebu teamed up with sophomore standout Samantha Bricio in the next match, as the two combined for 22 kills to pace USC’s attack. Haley’s decision to play his freshmen paid off, as outsider hitter Elise Ruddins notched eight kills on 14 swings and setter Alice Pizzasegola had 19 assists to complement junior Hayley Crone’s 20.“I think Ebony performed very well, as did all of our freshmen, for their first tournament,” Haley said. “Ebony had a lot of responsibility and started playing well in the heat of the competition. She showed that she likes to compete and she brought some heat. I’d like to see her blocking and defense get better, but she’s good enough to be a six-rotation player, and that’s our goal for her.”The Women of Troy concluded the tournament with a dominant performance against Alabama A&M, as Bricio received her third career tournament MVP nod and joined Nwanebu and senior libero and captain Natalie Hagglund on the all-tournament team. Haley rotated all three of his freshman liberos, as newcomers Anne Marie Schmidt and Kelly Wimmer saw their first taste of collegiate action.“We still have some questions as to where we need to really spend our work,” Haley said. “We got some good blocking, but I don’t think we passed as well as we’re capable of, and we certainly made way too many service errors. We’re working on some things with the serving and trying to get the new kids comfortable.”Junior outside hitter Emily Young, who saw action in the first and third matches, praised the team’s performance but also noted the importance of redirecting focus to the upcoming tournament.“It was an excellent opening tournament for our team, and I think it was a great opportunity for us to test what we’ve been working on,” Young said. “But [Haley] is always looking toward the next game, so we can celebrate our win in the moment but we know we have worthy opponents to play.” Follow us on Twitter @dailytrojanlast_img read more

Justice for Saheed

first_imgThousands of human rights activists want justice for a mentally ill Jamaican-born immigrant shot to death by NYPD officers as millions around the country were celebrating the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holding silver pipeVassell, who was born in Jamaica and migrated with his family to Brooklyn, NY at age 6, was holding a silver metal pipe with a head on it on April 4th at Utica Avenue near the corner of Montgomery Street, in Brooklyn, when police opened fire, killing him. Shot 10 timesNYPD officials, including Chief of Department Terence Monahan, say the two plainclothes and two uniformed officers responding to a 911 call just before 5 p.m. ET about a man pointing what was described as a “silver firearm” at people at the corner, mistook the item for a silver gun. He said when officers arrived Vassell, 34, reportedly pointed the object at them and they opened fire, shooting a combined 10 times. Vassell was transported to Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn’s East Flatbush neighborhood, where he was pronounced dead. Wants justiceVassell’s mother, Lorna Vassell, called the killing of her son “unjustified.” “I want justice. They murdered my son, and I want justice for him,” she said, while questioning why police didn’t simply shoot her son in his leg. His father, Eric Vassell, said his son had bipolar disorder and had been admitted to the hospital multiple times in recent years, sometimes after encounters with the police.  Ironically, police also shot dead Vassell’s best friend, Ortanzso (Marlon) Bovell, on a Brooklyn street in August 2008. That killing, according to family members, set Vassell on a downward spiral mentally. “We were taking care of him, doing everything for him,” his mother stated. Vassell was one of four siblings who lived in their parents’ two-bedroom apartment as children in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. He dropped out of high school but ultimately built a career as a welder before his mental health breakdown. Kept stack of BiblesA stack of Bibles and religious books were among the items on Vassell’s bedroom dresser at his parents’ apartment, according to the New York Times. His various Bibles were placed neatly in size order, one on top of the other, with the largest at the bottom. He, reportedly, routinely attended 7:30 a.m. service at St. Matthew Roman Catholic Church. Vassell, a father of a teenage son, also went to Mass at the church every Sunday. New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman now also wants to know why the Jamaican immigrant, whose shooting has sparked an intense standoff between angry residents who knew Vassell, and police. and days of protests, was shot dead by police. “We’re committed to conducting an independent, comprehensive, and fair investigation,” Schneiderman said late last week. Protest marchAbout 2,000 people marched in the streets of Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights in response to the killing of Vassell. Nerdeen Kiswani, an organizer with Within Our Lifetime, said, “People who live here, people who worked here all knew Saheed. They knew that he walk around with various objects that he found. He would come into my dad’s store and show off what he had. Then my dad would give him water,” she said. Marchers also yelled: “FTP! F… the police!” to “How do you spell criminal? NYPD!,” as they tried to come to terms with yet another Black man shot down by police. (NewsAmericasNow.com)last_img read more

Day by day, Dodgers’ Kiké Hernandez might be growing from role player to every-day guy

first_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Kiké Hernandez has spent his first five years in the big leagues trying to shed one label for another – every-day player.For the first time, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, he can see that happening.“Yeah,” Roberts said before Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the Atlanta Braves. “Does that mean he’s going to start every game this series? Maybe, maybe not. But this is the first time I see that he has a legitimate case to be an every-day player, yeah.”Hernandez has always had value as a role player. He plays seven positions and might be the best defender on the Dodgers’ roster at a few of them. But he has always been limited to playing against left-handed pitching because of severe splits – a .221 career average and .665 OPS against righties, .266 and .847 against lefties. Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “I’ll never be done saying thank you to Chase Utley.”Roberts sees the growth in Hernandez but he also sees refinement in his approach and swing as being instrumental in smoothing out the inconsistencies in Hernandez’s game.“There has been a mechanical component to it with him, kind of getting on plane sooner with his swing,” Roberts said. “That’s kind of the mechanical part of it. I think more important there’s a commitment to using the big part of the field and also just really appreciating the value of staying in the strike zone and not always trying to slug.“So there’s the mechanical piece to be able to stay on the baseball when the ball is going away from you, with the secondaries (breaking pitches) typically, and to not always try to slug allows you to see the ball a tick longer. I think those three things have allowed him to be the player he is.”PITCHING PLANSBraves manager Brian Snitker said before Game 2 that “we’re going to lean toward (Kevin) Gausman” to start Game 3 in Atlanta on Sunday.“That being said, I was going to send him back (to Atlanta) today but we’re not,” Snitker said.Instead, Gausman was available to pitch in relief Friday “just in case something happens tonight.” Snitker already used one starter (left-hander Sean Newcomb) in relief in Game 1 after starter Mike Foltynewicz lasted just two innings.Gausman was obtained from the Baltimore Orioles at the trade deadline and went 5-3 with a 2.87 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 10 starts with the Braves.LEFT OUTAfter platooning aggressively in September, Roberts used the same eight position players in Games 1 and 2. That could continue with the Dodgers likely to see only right-handed starters from the Braves.So Roberts said the Dodgers will have a simulated game Sunday afternoon at SunTrust Park so that players like Matt Kemp, Brian Dozier and David Freese can get at-bats in a live setting and stay “current.”Related Articles That imbalance has leveled off this season. Hernandez hit .252 against righties, .260 against lefties, with a higher OPS (.833 to .780) and more home runs off righties (12) than lefties (nine). Combine that with Brian Dozier’s deep slump since arriving from the Minnesota Twins at the end of July and a window of opportunity opened for Hernandez, who made 39 starts against right-handed pitchers during the regular season and the first two games of the postseason.Hernandez took advantage by hitting .349 with a .976 OPS over the final two months of the season. He hit one of the Dodgers’ three home runs in their Game 1 win.“I think for like three years now everybody knows what I can do with my glove and my arm or whatever, but it was about putting it together at the plate,” Hernandez said. “The last two or three years I’ve been fighting myself, fighting my brain … wanting to play every day really bad and not really focusing on the big picture and taking it one day at a time.”The 27-year-old Hernandez has always had a Gold Glove-level ability to find his way in front of a camera. But this year he has gone from wearing a banana suit to T-shirts celebrating his adopted ‘dad,’ veteran Chase Utley. The relationship with Utley has helped him mature and understand what a work ethic really looks like, Hernandez said.“I had probably the best season of my career so far,” Hernandez said. “Obviously I’m not going to say that my talent, my ability didn’t have anything to do with it. But I give most of the credit to Chase, because the work ethic that I created by being around him was what allowed me to have a pretty solid season and contribute a lot to the team.

Dan Plesac supports umpire leniency in Rockies-Cubs beanball war

first_img“I liked it. We saw an overreaction from the umpires the other night,” Plesac said. “If you look at the way (the Rockies) have pitched Kris Bryant … as a pitching staff you cannot whether it’s by accident or not, you cannot let a team throw up-and-in (to your star player).”MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNThere were plenty of fireworks between the Cubs and Rockies 🎇@Plesac19 explains why he’s in favor of how things went down.#ChangeUp pic.twitter.com/IeAr8U3DsO— DAZN USA (@DAZN_USA) June 13, 2019Colorado and Chicago are not scheduled to play again this season, so barring a playoff matchup, Arenado’s “spicy” series must wait until next year. By then, perhaps tensions will have cooled down. More likely, though, the star figures in this beef will continue to hold a grudge moving forward, even if it doesn’t translate to additional on-field theatrics. Three years of dislike doesn’t dissipate overnight. Four hit by pitches — two each way — prompted strong words from the Rockies and Cubs clubhouses Wednesday afternoon. Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado, clearly unhappy with being plunked on the forearm by Cole Hamels in the third inning, said his team’s next meeting with Chicago could be “spicy.”The animosity between organizations dates back to several up-and-in pitches to Cubs infielder Kris Bryant in recent years, spilling into this week when Bryant took another two offerings from the Rockies to his body. In a departure from what baseball fans witnessed a couple of days before, when Josh Donaldson and Joe Musgrove were given quick ejections for a confrontation in Atlanta, umpires did not dismiss anyone from the Rockies-Cubs contest. Longtime MLB pitcher Dan Plesac, who now works as a baseball analyst, appeared on DAZN’s “ChangeUp” to support how the teams were allowed to govern themselves Wednesday.last_img read more

‘Barça’ licenses, a € 63M business hit by the coronavirus

first_imgThe club recovered, in July 2018, the direct exploitation of the retail, licensing and marketing of the Barça brand, that the last sixteen years had been managed by Nike.In order to protect his brand image and generate new income, he created the company BLM (Barça Licensing and Merchandising), which currently manages six of its own stores (Camp Nou, Passeig de Gracia, La Roca Village, Airport T2, Airport T1 and the recently opened one on the Rambla in Barcelona). This business unit, which employs about 330 people and has become strategic for the clubIt also has eleven other licensed stores, 328 licensees and more than 7,000 licensed products.However, the health emergency has hit its economy hard, like any other sector, and The 17 stores that sell official club products have been closed since the government decreed the state of alarm.When the pandemic passes, the uncertainty about when the competitions will resume and the logical and predictable fall of tourism -two factors that significantly increase turnover- will only slow down the recovery.However, sources from FC Barcelona have assured EFE that the objective is, as far as possible, to avoid an ERTE that affects not only BLM employees but the rest of the club’s employees. Although all the scenarios are being considered, there is still no decision made.On the other hand, the entity continues working on the salary reductions of the players that they militate in the teams of their professional sports with the purpose that, if finally it is necessary to raise possible non-sports affectations, they have the least possible impact. The retail sale of licensed products, a business that generates about 63 million euros a year FC Barcelona, is also being hit by the coronavirus, although lThe Barça entity still does not know what exactly the losses that the pandemic will leave.last_img read more

Vox Pop | Coaches react to ISSA rule change ahead of Champs 2017

first_imgMichael Clarke (Calabar) The decision is a retrograde one and I hope it is a move in the right direction. On the other hand, they could see it as a progressive step as they are thinking about the future for these athletes and they are thinking of the participation of more students at these Championships. Danny Hawthorne (Wolmer’s Boys’ School) From a health-wise perspective, I think this is a good decision as the principals are thinking about the protection of the athletes. This will not affect our team as we are in the building process and with this it will help in maximising the efforts of more students. David Riley (Excelsior High) The principals have made their decision and we just have to work with it. This will not affect my team adversely as we are always working on developing athletes, especially in hurdling. The timing could have been better but we will just have to proceed and do what we have to do by producing good athletes. John Mair (Vere Technical) The timing is bad to implement these changes in the middle of the season and will definitely affect my team especially in the sprints. If you can’t beat them you have to join them and I am not surprised with the decision as coaches have no say on what goes on and are not given any respect. Michael Dyke (Edwin Allen High) I think more time should have been given to sensitise the coaches. However, a decision has been made and we have to work with it. This will definitely help bigger teams like mine and it will also help with more participation and more athletes will be given a chance to compete. This is difficult for the smaller teams which usually have limited athletes to maximise with and I am hoping this decision will not affect the quality of performances going forward.last_img read more

Coalition Councillors threaten to shut down Region 5 RDC again

first_imgCoalition Councillors of the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) of Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) have threatened to shut down the RDC for the rest of the year. The threat came as the Council met on Thursday.The residents of Region Five were given a holiday present in December when the RDC met on December 21, 2017.  The coalition side of the Council promised they would be put first in 2018 and as such, they will participate in the RDC meetings but that promise might have only been short-lived for one meeting.Argument broke out at conclusion at Region Five RDC meetingThe threat was made at the end of the meeting and the Chairman was asked to reconvene the meeting. After stating that it had ended, some of the Councillors stated that he will not have a chance to close another meeting with them again and reminded him of what was done in 2016 and 2017.Prior to that, the meeting could have been considered fruitful with several recommendations being made and the REO being instructed to implement them while several issues were debated.The coalition claimed that the Chairman, Vickchand Ramphal, concluded the meeting abruptly and without giving some Councillors a chance to address an issue.In both 2016 and 2017, the coalition refused to sit in most of the meetings.Between January and July 2016, the coalition Councillors refused to sit at the meetings demanding an apology from the Chairman for not attending a function in the region at which President Granger was the guest of honour. In was until the President addressed the issue in August of that year stating that he did not want an apology that the coalition Councillors returned to the table.In May 2017, they walked out after the Regional Executive Officer, Ovid Morrison, demanded an apology from the Chairman saying his creditability was at stake when Ramphal called for an investigation into allegations that two NDC officials had used an NDIA machine to carry out personal work. Morrison said he saw the machine being used and is of the opinion that since he stated that he saw the machine carrying out personal work, no investigation is needed and to call for an investigation is an insult to his integrity.However, in December last, the Council assured residents that in 2018, the Council would put the development of the region first.Meanwhile, during Thursday’s meeting, Councillor Gloria Wolf noted that in 2017, Ramphal did not attend the function when President Granger visited the region to commission two David ‘G’ busses in December of 2016. She said last week the President was in the region again to commission another bus and the Regional Chairman did not attend the function. In fact, he picketed the President. The Councillor asked for an explanation.According to Ramphal, he was not officially informed of the President’s visit. (Andrew Carmichael)last_img read more

Spurs star Harry Kane admits: ‘Finishing below Arsenal would be hard to stomach’

first_imgTottenham star Harry Kane admits finishing below Arsenal this season would be a bitter pill to swallow.Spurs have sat ahead of their north London rivals since January, but Sunday’s defeat at home to Southampton means they can be overtaken on the final day of the campaign.Arsenal have closed the gap to two points following their draw at Manchester City and will finish second if they win at home to Aston Villa next weekend and Tottenham lose at Newcastle.A superior goal difference of 13 means a draw against the Magpies, who will be already relegated if Sunderland beat Everton on Wednesday, should be enough for Spurs – who are looking to finish above the Gunners for the first time since 1995.“Finishing third would be hard to stomach,” Kane said.“To finish above Arsenal would be a very good thing. It is not something I think we focus on at the start of the season but now we are here, it would be good.“It would be good for the fans to have the bragging rights for the first time in a long time. We want to finish second. It is in our hands, we have just got to win our game and the job will be done.“We all know what it means. We have not won the league this year but there is still a lot to play for and that is definitely one thing. The fans are urging us on.”Tottenham seemed destined to end their rivals’ hegemony in 2012, when they sat 12 points clear of Arsenal in February, but Harry Redknapp’s side collapsed and ended up fourth, one point behind.The dip has been far less dramatic this time around, but Spurs appear vulnerable heading into the final day.Their laboured performance against Southampton, in what was their final home game of the season, suggests there may be lingering disappointment from their failed title challengeThey have now taken only two points from the last nine available.“It has been a long season,” Kane said.“We have been fighting hard, mentally and physically, but I still think we looked good out there against Southampton. We played good football.“In recent weeks we just have not been finishing teams off. We have been going ahead, and then maybe lacked concentration.”The season has been particularly long for Kane, who has played every one of Tottenham’s 37 league matches and made 57 appearances overall for club and country.“I feel good. I look after my body, which is important,” Kane said. “I feel fit and ready. Hopefully we’ll finish strong next week and then I’ll look forward to the Euros.” Finishing below an out-of-form Arsenal would be a bitter blow for Spurs 1last_img read more

Her heart fixed, girl to return home

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals “When we first got Abi, we were told we would fix a heart and break our own,” she said. “… This incredible journey that we have taken will live on in our hearts forever.” The family volunteered to host Abi through Santa Clarita-based Healing the Children and The Two Marias International Children’s Fund, named for the twin Guatemalan girls who were conjoined at the head and surgically separated at UCLA in 2002. The Bachelises had a personal interest in getting involved. Their daughter, Sarah, now 13, was born with five heart defects and has undergone four successful surgeries at UCLA. Dr. Juan Alejos, associate professor of pediatric cardiology at Mattel, praised Abi and the family, calling them remarkable. “The Bachelises have done an extraordinary job getting her through very difficult surgeries,” he said. AGOURA HILLS – The Bachelis family took in a toddler named Abi so she could mend her heart, and now that they’re in love with her, she’s about to break theirs. Abi Vega Cruz came to Southern California from Quito, Ecuador, seven months ago to have a life-threatening heart defect repaired. The 2-year-old was born with a heart muscle so big it couldn’t pump properly. She underwent two surgeries at UCLA’s Mattel Children’s Hospital, paid for through a fund supported by actor Mel Gibson. Now, she’s a ball of energy who loves dressing up as a University of California, Los Angeles, cheerleader and watching her foster brother’s basketball games. She has recovered so well, in fact, that she will return home to Quito on Wednesday, just in time for Christmas. And while it’s been uplifting to watch her recover, it will be heart-rending to see her leave, said her volunteer foster mother, Jamie Bachelis. Abi arrived in Agoura Hills on May 5, a shy and sick 18-month-old. She hardly made a peep, Jamie Bachelis said. “I couldn’t tell if she didn’t feel well or if it was because she didn’t know anyone here,” she said. Eight days later, she was on an operating table, a surgeon’s blade sectioning out pieces of her heart and repairing a hole in it, a condition called a ventricle septal defect. A month later, a doctor implanted a pacemaker. As if that wasn’t enough, Abi also suffers from hip dysplasia and has been wearing a brace for five months to help improve her condition. After leaving the hospital, she was practically a brand new girl, singing and dancing, speaking both her native Spanish and a little English, and watching sports, Jamie Bachelis said. “Since the surgery, she has become a very happy child,” she said. “… I wish we didn’t have to give her up.” Abi arrived for her surgery thanks to the Two Marias fund, established in October 2004. Gibson donated $5 million to provide the hospital with reimbursement for medical care to children from foreign countries unable to afford care at home. To date, 27 children have come to UCLA through Two Marias. The fund pays for a patient’s medical expenses, but Healing the Children and the foster families take care of travel and day-to-day expenses, which average about $2,500 per child. To qualify for treatment, children must have serious medical conditions for which they are unable to be treated in their own countries. At UCLA, cardiology, neurology, optometry and cancer specialists have helped children from 1 to 18 years old. Gibson also donated another $5 million to Cedars Sinai Medical Center and has funded trips by medical teams to treat children in their own countries, said Chris Embleton, director and founder of Healing the Children. “He’s really saved the lives of hundreds of kids,” said Embleton, who founded the group 28 years ago after her adopted daughter died from an infection that started in her eye. The Bachelises helped Abi through some of the most difficult times she will ever face. “For Abi, it was really touch-and-go for a while,” she said. “Her heart problems were very complicated. Her foster family adores that child. Because of the love and care they gave to her, we now have a precious girl who has a bright future.” Eric Leach, (805) 583-7602 [email protected] HOW TO HELP To contribute to the Two Marias International Children’s Fund or become a foster family, call Healing the Children at (661) 288-1957.

First Milan derby of the season takes center stage as Serie A returns

first_imgCagliari vs GenoaSerdegna Arena, CagliariFriday, 20-09-2019 @9:45pmCagliari are looking for their first home win of the season with Giovanni Simeone hoping to score against his old club Genoa.The hosts picked up their first points last weekend with a comprehensive 3-1 win away to Parma, inspired by centre-half Luca Ceppitelli’s first half brace. Antonino Barillà pulled one back for the for the home side before Giovanni Simeone sealed the victory for the visitors.The Sardi had lost both their opening two fixtures at the Sardegna Arena, a 1-0 defeat to newly promoted Brescia was followed up by a narrow 2-1 loss to a revamped Inter side.Coach Rolando Maran has several injuries to contend with, as goalkeeper Alessio Cragno and striker Leonardo Pavoletti are long-term absentees, while Radja Nainggolan, Paolo Faragò and Luca Pellegrini are also on the treatment table and face late fitness tests ahead of this one.The Grifone, on the other hand, lost their first game of the season at the weekend when Atalanta left Marassi with the three points after a 2-1 victory. Duvan Zapata’s 95th-minute winner was enough to steal the win after it had looked like Domenico Criscito’s debatable 91st-minute penalty had given both sides a share of the spoils.The Ligurian club had played out an exciting 3-3 draw away to Roma on the opening day of the season, before defeating Fiorentina 2-1 at home the following week.Stefano Sturaro is joined on the injury list by Francesco Cassata, but Danish veteran Lasse Schone is already taking control of the midfield following his transfer from Ajax.Expect this game to be a tight enough affair, the Sardi will want to get their first win at home and will be confident after their good win over Parma last weekend. Meanwhile, the away team will hope to bounce back after their first defeat of the season.The Sardinians have lost their last four at home, whereas Genoa are without a win in 10 Serie A away fixtures.Udinese vs BresciaDercia Arena, UdineSaturday, 21-09-2019 @4pmThis already feels like a relegation dogfight, with Udinese and Brescia both coming off two consecutive defeats.Igor Tudor’s side won the opener against Milan, but it’s been all downhill from there, falling 3-1 to Parma and only 1-0 away to Inter, albeit with Rodrigo De Paul sent off. The Argentina international begins a three-match ban for slapping Antonio Candreva in an off-the-ball incident and is a big loss for the Friulani.Ignacio Pussetto is expected to step in as support for Kevin Lasagna, although Stefano Okaka is another option after his deadline day transfer from Watford.Brescia are still without their star man Mario Balotelli, who will be available from the midweek round once his leftover ban from Ligue 1 has expired. Daniele Dessena is also suspended for this trip to Udine, joining injured Ernesto Torregrossa, Giangiacomo Magnani, Bruno Martella and Emanuele Ndoj.There was already talk this week of sacking Coach Eugenio Corini to bring in Stefano Pioli after a 4-3 capitulation to Bologna. It’d be extremely harsh, considering they had been 3-1 up before Dessena’s foolish red card.A victory for Udinese would be a real tonic for their games ahead, as they come up against Hellas Verona and Bologna in their subsequent fixtures. If surviving the drop is the ultimate aim, then Brescia need to churn out consistent performances and upset teams of Udinese’s calibre.Brescia’s 2-1 result in September 2004 was their only Serie A victory away to Udinese, along with four draws and five defeats.Juventus vs Hellas VeronaAllianz Stadium, TorinoSaturday, 14-09-2019 @7pmJuventus fell off the top of the Serie A table after almost two years and host revitalised Hellas Verona after a midweek Atletico Madrid draw.The Bianconeri remain unbeaten this season, but the 0-0 draw at Fiorentina allowed Inter to break away as sole leaders. It was followed by the fumbling of a 2-0 lead in Madrid for the Champions League, as defending on set plays is becoming a real problem.The build-up has also been marred by events off the pitch after the arrest of 12 Juventus Ultras, which has even led to rumours that the game is even at risk of postponement, considering the bad blood that already exists between these fans.Maurizio Sarri may opt to rotate his side, as they continue in a hectic period, where they play their third of seven games in three weeks. Giorgio Chiellini is a long-term absentee, whilst Douglas Costa and Mattia De Sciglio missed the two draws against Atletico and Fiorentina.Players looking to step in include Gigi Buffon, Merih Demiral, Emre Can and Federico Bernardeschi, while Juan Cuadrado could move to right-back.Verona come into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Milan, where striker Mariusz Stepinski was sent off. Having defended admirably for 68 minutes, Krzysztof Piatek’s penalty gave Milan the win. They can take heart from their defensive performance that night, and a similar effort will be required against champions Juventus.Verona’s early season form has left them sitting in 11th, with a win away at Lecce and a 1-1 draw at Bologna their other results this season. Goals have been low on the agenda in Verona’s games, scoring twice and conceding twice across the three games, so if Juventus can break through the rigid defence, expect them to struggle to net themselves.Verona will be without Stepinski following his red card last time out, whilst Emmanuel Badu, Daniel Bessa and Salvatore Bocchetti are injured.Hellas Verona have never won away to Juventus in Serie A, managing four draws from 28 attempts.AC Milan vs Inter MilanStadio Guiseppe Meazza, MilanSaturday, 21-09-2019 @9:45pmThe Derby della Madonnina of the season has Inter looking to continue their perfect Serie A start against their city rivals, whose season is yet to take off.Milan have opened up their 2019-20 campaign with two less-than-convincing wins against newly promoted Verona and Brescia, and a disappointing 1-0 defeat in Udine. Just two goals in three games shows where they are lacking currently, with Krzysztof Piatek only netting his first goal of the season from the penalty spot in the win over 10-man Verona.As for Inter, they have played three, won three and are sitting pretty at the top of the Serie A table. However, they only scraped a late equaliser against Sparta Prague in their first Champions League group stage game, a result that was not in the script, especially after their impressive start domestically.Inter certainly aren’t struggling for goals at this early stage, scoring eight in their four games in all competitions. Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez seem to be firing, as well as the sparkling form of Stefano Sensi, who is making a real name for himself.Given their respective starts, Inter certainly have the better form and confidence, but we all know that means very little when it comes to the Derby della Madonnina.Milan are struggling in the final third and they should have conceded at least the one against Verona at the weekend, which will worry Marco Giampaolo. Even more concerning was how Milan failed to break down a team that were down to 10 men and even then, the goal came from the spot.Inter look like a team ready to challenge for the title and they have that bit of steeliness about them, as was shown in the game against Cagliari in Week 2.You would expect Diego Godin to be recalled after being rested midweek, which will only add to their defensive quality. Milan will need to find something they have, as of yet, failed to show – goal-scoring threat.Long-term viewers will know Inter’s tendency to put performances together before a collapse, and in a derby, teams find that extra edge. Milan do have the weapons to hurt Inter and could give Ante Rebic his first start after the Eintracht Frankfurt transfer, though he’s in competition with Lucas Paqueta and Samu Castillejo. Andrea Conti steps in for suspended Davide Calabria at right-back.The record shows that Milan are without a win in six Serie A derbies, so a seventh would represent their worst run since 1999. Derbies are mental battles just as much as physical ones and Milan will have to find their identity quickly.Inter are favourites and a few steps ahead of where Milan are right now, so Conte’s men will be keen to put a few things right after their disappointing result on Tuesday. This could well be a confirmation of how serious Inter are this season and they will be looking to keep the strong run going.There have only been two 0-0 draws in the derby in the last 15 years.Sassuolo vs SPALMAPEI Stadium, Raggio nell’EmiliaSunday, 22-09-2019 @1:30pmSPAL got off the mark with a comeback to beat Lazio, but Sassuolo’s all-attack approach is proving risky.Following last week’s defeat at the hands of Roma, the Neroverdi will put all their hopes on Domenico Berardi, who is leading the Capocannoniere race with five goals. The 25-year-old has been with Sassuolo from the age of 16, and while being heavily linked with Juventus in the past, he decided to remain with them and help the Emilian club’s cause. Huge expectations have been surrounding Berardi ever since his Serie A debut in 2013 and this year could prove decisive.Visitors SPAL are fresh from a 2-1 win against Lazio, thanks to Jasmin Kurtic’s vital goal in stoppage time. Coach Leonardo Semplici was full of praise for his men and will probably look to build upon their second-half performance, where Federico Di Francesco took a more advanced role on the right and proved decisive for the team. Semplici’s tactical lucidity and the healthy competition he created within the Biancazzurri squad will be decisive this year.Both Coaches promote an attack-minded football, representing the young generation of Italian tacticians that distance themselves from the classic defensive approach. Expect a dynamic game with potentially many goals. Roberto De Zerbi will be without 21-year-old Rogerio, while SPAL have lost Mohamed Fares due to injury.SPAL have never won against Sassuolo in Serie A and will certainly look to improve their defensive play, Lazio still having showed in the previous match the many flaws Leonardo Semplici’s team has.Each time Sassuolo and SPAL met at the Mapei Stadium the game ended 1-1.Bologna vs RomaStadio Renato Dall’Ara, BolognaSunday, 21-09-2019 @4pmDetails to follow Lecce vs NapoliStadio Comunale Via del Mare, LecceSunday, 21-09-2019 @4pmNapoli are buzzing after beating Champions League holders Liverpool, while Lecce also caused a stir with their shock victory at Torino.The Partenopei put in a convincing performance to see off Liverpool 2-0 at the Stadio San Paolo on Tuesday evening, with Dries Mertens and Fernando Llorente on target. Just 24 hours before that, Fabio Liverani’s Lecce got their first points of the season in style, taking down a Torino side who until Monday night had a perfect record.Carlo Ancelotti’s men are finding their feet after wins over Fiorentina and Sampdoria, plus only a last-gasp defeat to Juventus once they’d cancelled out a three-goal deficit.Having started the first two games of the season conceding seven goals between Juve and Fiorentina, Napoli looked like a defensive liability, but most recently obtaining two consecutive clean sheets against Sampdoria and Liverpool, they are finally hitting their stride.The squad seems to be healthy and vibrant, aside from some minor problems. Kostas Manolas and Lorenzo Tonelli were training individually and will continue to be monitored, leaving the possibility for Nikola Maskimovic to once again fill in. Dries Mertens put in great work midweek, but could well be rested in favour of Fernando Llorente or Arkadiusz Milik.Lecce had failed to register a goal or point until their shock victory away to joint leaders Torino. Having started the season with back to back losses at the hands of Inter and Hellas Verona, Fabio Liverani’s men are hoping they’ve found their Serie A groove.The Salentini come up against the likes of Roma, Milan and Juventus in the coming month, not to mention Napoli this Sunday. With a home advantage to protect, Lecce will look to pull off the Cinderella story here and give their home fans something to cheer about.Marco Mancosu scored the winner in the last fixture to give the newly promoted side their first three points, but Filippo Falco hit the headlines, because when he runs at defenders, he is extremely difficult to stop.There is no shortage of options, as Diego Farias, Khouma Babacar and Gianluca Lapadula are all battling for the centre-forward spot. Cristian Dell’Orco and Biagio Meccariello are injured in defence.Napoli have scored nine goals in the first three Serie A rounds, having more prolific starts only in 1931-32 (10) and 1953-54 (11).Sampdoria vs TorinoStadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, GenoaSunday, 21-09-2019 @4pmEusebio Di Francesco is already facing threats of the sack after three straight defeats, as Sampdoria host a Torino side fresh from their own huge setback.After three rounds of Serie A, the Blucerchiati are the only side not to have picked up any points so far, and new Coach Di Francesco is already feeling the pressure. On the Granata side of things, after victory in their first two games and the strong likelihood they’d be joint top of the table with Inter, they suffered a shock defeat at home to newly-promoted Lecce. It was the second major disappointment of the campaign after their Europa League play-off failure against Wolves.It is an understatement to say that both teams need something from this clash.The ownership issue continues to rumble on for the 1991 Scudetto winners, as President Massimo Ferrero continues his “public discussions” with former playing legend Gianluca Vialli. Until the situation behind the scenes is resolved, the performance on the field may very well continue to be affected.So far, Samp have switched players and formations, as Di Francesco has tried to find the right balance in a squad that lacks quality, but is still better than their bottom dweller position. There are issues at both ends of the field, as they have scored just once and have allowed nine at the back. Up front, Fabio Quagliarella has been the only forward to start all three games so far, and it will be interesting to see which of Gianluca Caprari, Manolo Gabbiadini, Gaston Ramirez, Emiliano Rigoni etc…will try to supply the veteran.Walter Mazzarri meanwhile mentioned that a number of his players came back late from international duty last week. Having almost a full week’s training with his entire squad, he will need to work out the kinks that allowed such a poor performance against Lecce. The biggest question of his team might be whether to employ Simone Zaza up front to partner the in form Andrea Belotti.Given the pressure that Samp are under and having this match at home, they ought to be seeking a victory, as even a draw does not help their cause. Torino’s best blueprint for success could be their impressive victory over Atalanta earlier in the campaign, when they came back from 1-2 in the second half, to emerge victorious 3-2.Gonzalo Maroni and Jakub Jankto are undergoing treatment, while Torino are without Cristian Ansaldi and winger Vittorio Parigini.Samp have never lost the opening four games of the Serie A season, so could set a new club record.Atalanta vs FiorentinaStadio Enio Tardini, ParmaSunday, 21-09-2019 @7pmDetails to follow   Lazio vs ParmaStadio Olimpico, RomeSunday, 21-09-2019 @9:45pmFrustration is growing at Lazio after almost identical defeats to SPAL and Cluj, while Parma are also struggling this season.Simone Inzaghi lamented his side’s lack of effort in the second half against SPAL, but they repeated the pattern in the Europa League on Thursday evening, again taking the lead only to lose 2-1 in Romania with CFR Cluj.Ciro Immobile, Stefan Radu and Luis Alberto didn’t even make the trip, while Adam Marusic was suspended for that tournament. Squad rotation therefore suggests those four could start on Sunday.Lazio will be hoping luck comes their way this weekend after hitting the woodwork four times, yet they face a Parma side who endured similar frustrations against Cagliari. The Ducali lost 3-1 at the Stadio Tardini, but had plenty of opportunities, not to mention a goal and potential penalty ruled out by VAR.Juraj Kucka, Matteo Scozzarella and Alberto Grassi are all injury doubts, while Yann Karamoh was punished for failing to turn up to training. The statement from the club confirmed this was not an isolated incident for the winger on loan from Inter.Parma have lost each of their last five Serie A encounters with Lazio, not to mention the most recent six trips to the Olimpico. However, the Aquile are without a league home win in four.Parma could win their opening two away fixtures of a Serie A season, something they achieved only once in 1997-98.Comments Tags: AC MilanInter MilanItalian Serie Alast_img read more

Big meet for scientists in South Africa

first_imgThe Academy of Science of South Africais co-hosting the event – pictured is theorganisation’s board.(Image: Rhodes University)MEDIA CONTACTS • Dorothy NgilaASSAf secretariat+27 12 349 6607Cadine PillayOne of the most prominent science events to occur in Africa will see hundreds of scientists from all over the world convene in Johannesburg, Gauteng at the end of May as South Africa hosts the Global Young Academy (GYA) General Assembly.The event will take place from 20 to 23 May at the Gordon Institute of Business Science’s Johannesburg campus, and will attract a number of prominent people in varying fields of science.The joint hosts are the South African Young Academy of Science (SAYAS) and the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf).Hosting the assembly offers South Africa and Africa a unique opportunity and will serve as a motivating factor for young scientists to fully participate in national and global scientific issues, SAYAS said in a statement.Science and technology minister Naledi Pandor will give the keynote address, speaking to the theme Sustainability: Lessons on the road from Rio to Rio+20. The meeting will focus on producing a statement from these combined views to highlight at the Rio+20 meeting.Rio+20 is the UN Conference on Sustainable Development to take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June 2012. The highly-anticipated event is a follow-up to the UN Conference on Environment and Development that was held 20 years ago in the same city.Promoting science for young mindsThrough the work of SAYAS, young South African scientists are drawn from all backgrounds and recognise that the solution of local and global challenges requires deep understanding across disciplines and cultures. Since its inception in 2011, the organisation has worked hard to recognise the need for young scientists to contribute towards these challenges.On this foundation, it will link up with the GYA to provide opportunities for local scientists to interact with their international counterparts and give them a platform to influence policy decisions in their field of work.From the perspective of SAYAS, the main objective for the assembly is to contribute to the career development of young and emerging scientists. Equally important is the ability to promote science as a subject among pupils and society in general.The organisation also wishes to foster solid links between scientists and the business community by showcasing workshops and presentations by the senior scientists.“We are excited about the workshop on national young academies that will bring together voices from established academies and those that are just starting,” said SAYAS founding member Prof Bernard Slippers.“The intention is to stimulate and support the establishment of more such academies around the world, and to link the existing ones even stronger.”Bridging the international gapThe assembly will showcase the GYA’s various projects which are aimed at bridging the gap between scientists in Africa and the rest of the world. It will serve as a motivating factor for young South African scientists to fully participate in national and global scientific events.Given the support by the Department of Science and Technology and ASSAf, as well as the Forestry and Agricultural Biotechnology Institute at the University of Pretoria, the event will raise the profile of SAYAS within the science fraternity in South Africa.Furthermore, delegates will also engage in outreach activities in collaboration with South African higher learning institutions. Members of the GYA are expected to visit various universities and other research organisations, schools in Soweto, Alexandra and Pretoria, and science centres such as Sci-Bono Discovery Centre and SciEnza, to promote science as a career and speak to pupils.‘The voice of young scientists around the world’The GYA was founded in 2010 and established itself as “the voice of scientists around the world”. The academy’s main objective is to unlock the potential of the world’s young scientists and to mobilise them in their creative prime.The academy currently has 172 active members who include leading young scientists – with an average age of 35 years – from 54 countries. Members were selected for their excellence and commitment to service from nominations submitted by the academies in their different countries.The GYA’s diverse range of member scientists includes Onoja Matthew Akpa, a bio-medical statistics specialist from Nigeria; Fernando Febres Cordero, a theoretical physicist from Venezuela whose research interest lies in particle physics phenomenology; and Ranjini Bandyopadhyay, from the Raman Research Institute in India.The organisation’s membership is expected to grow over the next two years to 200 members, each serving a four-year term with them. The vibrancy of the GYA, according to a statement from the organisation, results from the energy of its members who are passionate about the role of science in creating a better world.Slippers said although this will be an important event on the calendar of GYA, and will boost its outputs and impacts worldwide, it will be equally important for SAYAS, increasing its momentum as an organisation that will impact science in South Africa and its international connectedness.“It is also likely to touch various aspects of science and science development beyond these two organisations, as senior and young scientists from around the world interact with scientists and society around the country,” he said.last_img read more

‘Emery won’t win the title with Arsenal’

first_imgArsenal ‘Emery won’t win the title with Arsenal’ – Parlour expects lack of funds to hold new boss back Chris Burton 02:06 5/26/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(3) Unai Emery Arsenal Getty/Goal Arsenal Premier League The former midfielder believes the big spending of champions Manchester City and other rivals will keep the Gunners away from the top-flight crown Unai Emery will not deliver Premier League title success at Arsenal as big-spending rivals will continue to dominate, says Ray Parlour.The Gunners are about to open a new chapter after 22 years with Arsene Wenger at the helm, with the Frenchman having been famed for a frugal approach to recruitment throughout his reign.It may be that the purse strings are loosened a little under a new boss, with Emery being charged with the task of returning the club to the top four and challenging for major honours. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now The Spaniard is a proven winner from spells at Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain, but Parlour fears the grandest of prizes in England will prove beyond him as he lacks the financial support to challenge.The former Gunners midfielder told talkSPORT: “I would love him to do it, but I’m going to say no.“I think Man City are going to get stronger and stronger, and I think Pep Guardiola is going to stick around.“I can’t see who’s going to challenge them.“Top four is going to be important [for Arsenal].“They’ve got to get back into the Champions League, so, for me, top four will be a very successful season.”Parlour added: “Unless there’s massive investment, the same as at Man City, [they’ll never win the league].“Man City will go out and buy the big players. If Pep Guardiola stays around and they keep trying to make the squad better, it’s going to be very difficult.”Arsenal’s last title triumph came back in 2003-04 when their iconic team of ‘Invincibles’ secured domestic dominance in style.They have only finished as runners-up on two occasions since then, with a humbling period of regression endured under Wenger.The last two campaigns have seen the Gunners lose their standing among the Champions League elite, with the club having to console themselves with Thursday night football in the Europa League.last_img read more

No doubt about it,” he said.Although neither Marcus Rashford nor Romelu Lukaku were able to trouble Barca keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen on Wednesday, Solskjaer believes the United forwards can get opportunities in Spain.”We are a goal threat, be it Rom or Rash or whoever is playing up there we have to create chances for them.”We have to take our chances. You have to be very efficient over there. We know we are not going to create loads of chances.

Stolt-Nielsen Eyes LNG Distribution Projects

first_imgzoom Oslo-listed shipowner Stolt-Nielsen Limited plans to build a global business of small-scale regional LNG distribution projects, focusing on terminals in strategic locations, which would be serviced by a flexible fleet of ships, the company said.The shipowner added that these LNG distribution projects would be underwritten by a committed base load demand.The company is also looking to develop an integrated model to include sourcing of LNG, shipping to small scale terminals (10,000 cbm – 30,000 cbm) and distribution from the terminalsvia truck and ISO containers to the end user.According to Stolt-Nielsen, the company is seeing potential projects in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, South America, India, Indonesia, Africa and Canada.The projects would have an aim to service stranded-demand customers out of reach of conventional pipeline gas. Stolt-Nielsen noted that the “off-take agreements are currently in the 10-15 year range with suitable counterparty credit.”“I think this is a huge growth area for Stolt-Nielsen,” the company’s CEO Niels G. Stolt-Nielsen said, adding that the LNG segment could prove to be of grate value to the firm.Stolt-Nielsen earlier issued a guarded outlook for Stolt Tankers despite improved operating results in the first six months of 2016, saying that the division might be facing delays and cancellations of newbuildings.“Going forward, we remain guarded with respect to the outlook for Stolt Tankers in 2017 and 2018. The orderbook stands at 27% of the existing fleet, but it remains unclear how this will ultimately play out, as some delays and cancellations of newbuildings seem increasingly likely. Also, higher exports of certain commodity chemicals from the U.S. Gulf are pulling tonnage out of our niche market in specialty chemicals, thus helping to maintain our freight rates,” Stolt-Nielsen said.The company reported its net profit at USD 37.8 million for the second quarter ended May 31, 2016, up from a net profit of USD 30.4 million seen in the first quarter of the year.The revenue for the period also increased to USD 478.9 million, from USD 464 million seen in the first quarter of 2016.last_img read more

Why BJP leaders only attacking oppn not highlighting own achievements Akhilesh Yadav

Nepal UN foreign envoys call for investigation into disappearances

9 December 2009Foreign envoys to Nepal today called for an end to impunity for those responsible for a series of disappearances during the decade-long civil war in Nepal, one year after the United Nations issued a report calling for justice and redress. Officials representing eight nations and the European Union, along with the representative of the UN human rights office in the Asian nation, visited Bardiya District, where at least 170 people disappeared between 2001 and 2004 during the conflict, which claimed some 13,000 lives and ended in 2006 when the Government and the Maoists signed a peace deal.Victims of the disappearances in Bardiya were arrested and held without due process of law, according to the Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal). They were also tortured, physically and psychologically, and many are presumed to have been executed, in clear violation of Nepali and international law.Although the cases have been well documented by both OHCHR and the National Human Rights Commission and despite a 2007 ruling by Nepal’s Supreme Court, no official investigation has taken place into these serious allegations.“Now is the time to act to account for the crimes of the past and to end impunity for those soldiers, police and Maoists implicated in these horrific crimes,” the envoys, who met with the Conflict Victims Committee and victims’ families today, said in a statement. “It is clear that their desire for truth and justice cannot go unfulfilled.”The officials also visited the notorious Bhada Bridge in Bhadapur, where it is alleged that nine people were summarily executed by the Royal Nepal Army in May 2002, with their bodies being buried in a sandbank.“The long refusal of the Army, police and Maoists to cooperate has prolonged the pain of the relatives and delayed justice,” they stressed, calling on the Unified CPN-Maoist to bring to light the fate of individuals abducted by Maoists during the conflict and to cooperate with investigations.“Similarly, we call on the Government to ensure that members of the Nepal Army and other state personnel involved in disappearances are brought to justice, and that measures are taken to protect victims and witnesses of the crimes…“Effectively dealing with the legacy of the conflict will allow Nepal’s transition to peace, democracy and development to continue on the basis of trust, truth and reconciliation.”The nine envoys represented Australia, Denmark, Finland, the EU, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. read more

With some 1000 refugees arriving daily Greek islands under severe strain warns

Close to 1,000 refugees are now arriving on the Greek islands every day, creating an unprecedented emergency for Greece and other countries, the UN refugee agency warned on Friday. “Greece’s volatile economic situation, combined with the increasing numbers of new arrivals, is putting severe strain on small island communities, which lack the basic infrastructure and services to adequately respond to the growing humanitarian needs,” William Spindler , a spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), said during a press briefing in Geneva. Since the beginning of the year, a “staggering” 77,100 people had arrived in Greece by sea, many on flimsy and unsafe vessels. Almost 60 per cent of the new arrivals are from Syria while others come from Afghanistan, Iraq, Eritrea and Somalia. A boat leaving Turkey on Tuesday loaded with up to 40 refugees capsized between the Greek islands of Agathonisi and Farmakonisi, said Mr. Spindler. Authorities say 19 people were rescued, but five bodies were retrieved and up to 16 people are still missing. UNHCR said that the number of people arriving is now so high that, despite all efforts, the authorities and local communities can no longer cope. A majority of the refugees arriving in Greece are moving onward, trying to reach countries in western and northern Europe through the western Balkans region. Countries in this region such as the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Serbia, have witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of refugees. In the first half of this year, some 45,000 people sought asylum in the region, almost a ninefold increase of asylum applications compared with the same period in 2014. However, these are only some of the refugees entering the two countries, with most continuing directly on their way to Hungary and further north. It is estimated that half of all refugees who are actually passing through the region do so without being registered by the authorities, and are exposed to violence and abuse by smugglers and criminal gangs. “An urgent response from Europe is needed before the situation deteriorates further,” Mr. Spindler stressed. “Tightening borders is not the solution, including the plans of the Hungarian government to build a fence along the Serbian border.” Expressing concerns for the well-being of refugees, including pregnant women and children, the spokesperson stressed that, despite the precarious situation facing the livelihoods of many Greek people, their response towards refugees has for the most part been “welcoming and generous.” In the face of such situation, more UNHCR staffers have already been deployed to five locations in the eastern Aegean, to provide advice and assistance to new arrivals and care for unaccompanied children and people with specific needs. read more

It was quiet for a few innings until the top of the third, when Texas scored five times, with only one being earned due to four Ohio State errors in the inning.

PETA une campagne contre les cosmétiques testés sur les animaux

first_imgPETA : une campagne contre les cosmétiques testés sur les animauxL’association PETA qui milite pour la défense des droits des animaux lance une nouvelle campagne. Celle-ci vise à convaincre la Commission européenne de ne pas repousser l’interdiction de vente de tout produit cosmétique contenant des ingrédients testés sur les animaux.”Cosmétiques testés sur les animaux : le côté moche de la beauté. Ne repoussez pas l’interdiction de l’UE”. Ceci est le slogan de la nouvelle campagne que vient tout juste de lancer l’association PETA qui défend les droits des animaux et milite contre toute forme de cruauté qui peut leur être infligés. Mais pour cette campagne, l’association a concentré ces efforts sur une cause bien particulière : l’expérimentation sur les animaux de certains ingrédients contenus dans les cosmétiques. À lire aussiLe chat de Pallas, un félin sauvage aussi irrésistible que méconnuPlus précisément, la PETA demande à la Commission Européenne de ne pas repousser l’échéance de 2013 pour interdire la vente de tout produit cosmétique contenant de tels ingrédients. En effet, en 2003, le Parlement Européen a voté la fin de ventes de tous les articles cosmétiques et de toilette contenant des ingrédients testés sur les animaux d’ici 2013. Mais sous la pression de l’industrie des cosmétiques, la Commission Européenne réfléchit aujourd’hui à repousser cette échéance.L’association a donc décidé de frapper fort. L’affiche montre Kimberly Wyatt, juge de l’émission britannique “Got to Dance” et fondatrice de BM Beauty, les yeux injectés de sang et le visage incrustés de plaies censées rappeler les effets produits par les tests chimiques sur les animaux. “Cela me rend malade de penser que les lapins et d’autres animaux sont toujours gavés de substances chimiques toxiques pour du rouge à lèvre ou du shampoing. Cette interdiction est mise en œuvre depuis 10 ans maintenant. La Commission Européenne ne devrait pas laisser durer cette cruauté une seule année de plus”, a estimé Kimberly Wyatt citée par 20minutes.fr.Ajouté à cette campagne, plusieurs milliers de militants des associations européennes affiliées à PETA ont directement contacté la Commission pour lui demander que l’échéance ne soit pas repoussée. En décembre dernier, les sympathisants de PETA Etats-Unis ont même livré plus de 50.000 lettres et e-mails au Commissaire Européen John Dalli, qui doit prendre une décision concernant cette interdiction dans les semaines à venir.Le 15 janvier 2012 à 11:26 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

that would dramatically cut taxes for most Americans and the biggest businesses He was proud of his proposal to end inheritance taxes on estates of any size and change how married couples to calculate their joint income For the self-professed policy wonk this was where he wanted to run his campaign for President Then the specter of Donald Trump appeared Toward the end of the campaign event in Raleigh North Carolina a questioner tossed Bush what would generously be described as a softball question and the former Florida governor veered a little off script to attack Trump "We always hear politicians promising to cut taxes and I have to say Im skeptical that theyll actually be able to get the job done" the questioner began "Can you convince us that you can actually accomplish what youve outlined in this plan" Politics Newsletter Sign up to receive the day’s top political stories View Sample Sign Up Now Bush responded by dinging Trump and implicitly 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney who made broad economic promises but never fleshed out the details enough that economists could evaluate them MORE: Bush Goes After Trump in His First Campaign Ad of 2016 "The first thing you do is you dont have a secret plan You have a full plan You have to be willing to take a chance" he said He contrasted that with his approach Wednesday arguing that he his plan was a thoughtful way to cut rates and close loopholes “Ive laid out a plan that has the most details of any candidate running for office" he said That may be true although that’s not saying much at this stage in the game Budget experts who looked at the backgrounder provided by the Bush campaign found some things to like as well as some major unresolved questions that would make it hard to evaluate the proposal’s effect on the deficit Maya MacGuineas president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget called the Bush proposal “a good starting place” because it would simplify the tax code and get rid of some tax breaks But she said it’s impossible to know for sure exactly how much money the Bush proposal would cost the government "Theres not enough to figure out anything conclusively" she said Liberal budget-watchers were not as generous Harry Stein director of fiscal policy at the Center for American Progress Action Fund the advocacy arm of the liberal think tank Center for American Progress said the plan did not appear revenue-neutral meaning it would reduce the amount of tax money coming into the government "We do know that very rich people will get huge tax cuts from this" Stein said noting the changes in how the tax rates for top earners were shrinking "There will still be important question marks that we need to digest" At the end of the Raleigh event Bush was done with policy He had made his pitch for three tax brackets instead of the current seven increasing standard deductions and phasing out specific ones He turned instead to politics arguing that Trump and other Republican rivals were full of bluster "You know this political environment were in now where the louder voices just turn up the volume and thats a sign of leadership It isnt" Bush said "People know that" Instead Bush suggested leadership meant having convictions and policies to match them "It is the only way big ideas will be implemented in Washington DC” Meanwhile back in Washington Trump and Texas Sen Ted Cruz were holding a rally on the steps of the US Capitol against a proposed Iran nuclear deal Cable news networks showed the protest live while giving short shrift to Bush’s wonkier event But Bush whose first campaign ad also took a jab at Trump was getting more comfortable knocking the frontrunner although in a typically understated way "Dont demonize people who disagree with you" he added "I dont have the skill sets requiredand I never want themwhere you push someone down who disagrees with you" Read Next: Donald Trump and Ted Cruz Rally Against Iran Deal in Washington
