President Says New Trade Deal a Great Victory for Farmers

first_img President Says New Trade Deal a Great Victory for Farmers By Andy Eubank – Oct 1, 2018 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News President Says New Trade Deal a Great Victory for Farmers Previous articleHarvest Problems in SE IndianaNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for October 2, 2018 Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter USMCA-AnnouncementThe U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, known as USMCA, is not NAFTA re-done according to President Donald Trump. It is a new trade deal between the three countries. The deal was reached just before the deadline at the end of September, and Monday at the White House the President said it has strong new labor, environmental and intellectual property protections. He said it is also a great victory for American farmers.“Our farmers have gone through a lot over the last fifteen years,” he said. “They’ve been taken advantage of by everybody, prices have gone way down. Mexico and Canada will be opened up a lot more than they are now, and I think there will be a better spirit between the three countries, which is important for our farmers. The agreement will give our farmers and ranchers far greater access to sell American grown produce in Mexico and in Canada. The deal includes a substantial increase in our farmers’ opportunities to export American wheat, poultry, eggs and dairy, including milk, butter, cheese, yogurt and ice cream.”U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the agreement is historic in its value, “the USMCA will cover $1.2 trillion, easily making it the biggest agreement in history.” And it came together in just 14 months, “and believe me in trade negotiating terms that’s like warp speed.”Lighthizer said there are provisions in USMCA to keep it up to date.“We’ve also agreed to a first of its kind review and termination provision, which will insure that the USMCA, unlike NAFTA, will not become unbalanced and out of date.”The U.S., Canadian and Mexican legislatures now must ratify the agreement, and some would like that done by December 1st, before the change of administration in Mexico.While anxious to review the details of the new agreement, the nation’s major commodity organizations applauded the last hour inclusion of Canada, at the same time the farm bill expired.(Official White House Photo by Stephanie Chasez)last_img read more

Private sector must match public transferors’ terms and conditions

first_img Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Private sector employers taking on public sector staff as a result oftendering will have to match their previous terms and conditions, includingpensions, according to a new code of practice. The code, due out imminently, also aims to quell union complaints about atwo-tier workforce by ensuring employees recruited by the private sector areoffered “broadly comparable terms and conditions” to thosetransferring from the local authority says???. It is expected to form part of the conditions of all local authoritycontracts as well as transfers following retendering and will apply theprinciples set out in the Cabinet Office Statement of Practice on StaffTransfers in the Public Sector. This states staff should transfer under theprotection of the TUPE regulations. Private sector employers must make pension provision that is actuariallycertified as being “broadly comparable” with the public servicescheme and allow staff to transfer their accrued service credits. New recruits must be offered employment on “fair and reasonable”terms and conditions which are, overall, broadly comparable to those of thetransferred employees, and must include an offer of “reasonable”pension arrangements. “In many ways the code is what many organisations with good personnelpractices have already been following,” said Mary Mallett, deputyvice-president of Socpo. But John McMullen, head of employment at Pinsent Curtis Biddle, said thecode would significantly reduce employers’ ability to negotiate flexibleagreements on staff transfers.

Antarctic winter tropospheric warming – the potential role of polar stratospheric clouds, a sensitivity study

first_imgOver the last 30 years, Antarctic mid-tropospheric temperatures in winter have increased by 0.5 K per decade, the largest regional tropospheric warming observed. Over this period, amounts of polar stratospheric cloud(PSC) have also increased, as rising CO2 concentrations cooled the stratosphere. By imposing an idealisation of these increases in PSC within the radiation scheme of an atmosphere-only general circulation model, we find that they could have contributed to the observed warming. The present generation of global climate models do not properly represent PSCs, and so these results demonstrate the need to improve the representation of PSCs. Copyright.

Press release: Boost for drivers as government backs clamp down on rogue parking firms

first_imgDrivers will receive new legal protections from unscrupulous private parking operators as Communities Secretary, Sajid Javid, today (28 January 2018) confirmed that government will support new legislation aimed at raising standards in the industry.Evidence shows that, in total, nearly 10,000 people approached the Citizen’s Advice Bureau for advice on private parking tickets last year and parking firms are issuing almost 13 times more tickets than decade ago.Drivers are increasingly complaining of inconsistent practices, substandard signage, confusing appeals processes and intimidating payment letters.That is why the government is supporting new legislation to regulate the private parking industry.Under the plans, which will deliver on a manifesto commitment to tackle rogue parking operators, a stringent new Code of Practice will be developed by the Secretary of State in conjunction with motorists groups and other experts.Those falling foul of the rules would then be blocked from accessing driver data and issuing fines, effectively forcing them out of the industry.These measures, introduced in a Bill by Sir Greg Knight MP, build on action government has already taken to tackle rogue private parking operators, including banning wheel clamping and towing, and over-zealous parking enforcement by councils and parking wardens.Secretary of State for Communities, Sajid Javid, said: Office address and general enquiries Twitter – https://twitter.com/mhclgFlickr – http://www.flickr.com/photos/mhclgLinkedIn – http://www.linkedin.com/company/mhclg Industry bodies have lined up to support the Bill, which will receive its Second Reading in the House of Commons on Friday (2 February 2018).Steve Gooding, director of the RAC Foundation, said: Andrew Pester, Chief Executive of the British Parking Association, said: Motorists will be delighted that the government is throwing its weight behind Sir Greg Knight’s move to bring some much needed regulatory rigour to the world of private parking. We all hoped the ban on clamping would end the sharp practices that had come to plague private parking, but the fact that companies are issuing millions of penalty tickets annually is clear evidence that something is still goingbadly awry. Drivers don’t want a parking free-for-all, but they do want a system that is fair to all parties and that’s what a code of practice set by government – rather than the industry itself – should bring about. For too long drivers have suffered from unjust fines at the hands of dodgy parking firms. We need a fairer, clearer and more consistent system that brings the small minority of unscrupulous operators in line with those who are behaving appropriately. That is why government is putting the brakes on these rogue operators and backing new laws that will put a stop to aggressive behaviour and provide a simpler way for drivers to appeal fines. General enquiries: please use this number if you are a member of the public 030 3444 0000 2 Marsham StreetLondonSW1P 4DF Contact form https://forms.communit… Social media – MHCLG Please use this number if you are a journalist wishing to speak to Press Office 0303 444 1209 Media enquiries Email [email protected] We welcome Sir Greg’s Bill that aims to drive consistency and fairness in the private parking sector. Our membership already complies with a robust Code of Practice which we continuously seek to improve through consultation. A single, mandatory code of practice across the whole sector is important to ensure that unscrupulous providers don’t undermine the parking sector with bad practice. As the leading authority in the sector we shall continue to work closely with government and key stakeholders to press for progress towards a positive outcome for all. Further informationThe Parking (Code of Practice) Bill is a Private Members Bill introduced by Sir Greg Knight MP.The new Code of Practice will be drafted up with stakeholders, and would provide the clarity of a single set of rules for private parking, with clearer processes for appeals.The Secretary of State would also have the power to raise a levy on the sector to fund the production, publishing and enforcement of the code.At present, there are 2 parking trade associations, the British Parking Association (BPA) and the International Parking Community (IPC). Each has a Code of Practice that their members are required to abide by. A single code is intended to set a higher standard for practices across the sector, especially in the area of appeals against parking tickets.Citizen’s Advice Bureau statistics show that, in 2017, 5,011 (2016: 4690) people went into their local CAB branch seeking help about private parking. In addition, 4,395 (stats not available for 2016) called the Consumer helpline.The RAC Foundation expects that, in 2018, 6 million tickets will be issued by firms operating on private land. This is up from 4.7 million in 2017.RAC Foundation statistics also show that, in the second quarter of 2017-18, 1,429,703 vehicle-keeper records were sold to the private parking firms to issue tickets. This was 1,177% – or almost 13 times – higher than the 111,944 records sold a decade earlier in the second quarter of 2007 to 2008.The government is currently consulting to stop unfair practices in the issuing of County Court judgments.

Guitarist Mike Gantzer Joins New Fan-Run Podcast “All In With Aqueous” For First Episode

first_imgThe relationship between a band and their fans is a sacred one. Up-and-comers Aqueous, in particular, have a truly special relationship with their fans. Recently, the Buffalo, NY quartet released a brand new live record, Element Pt. I, which consolidates the finest live cuts from their Spring 2017 tour into a two-part album. The tracks that eventually made the record—and there were a lot to choose from—were selected by the band’s fans. Guitarist Mike Gantzer spent hours digging through the tour’s recorded catalog, taking notice of the particular versions of songs that their fans loved the most.Well, any good relationship is a two-way street. Enter All In With Aqueous, a fan-run podcast started by diehard Aqueous fan Myke Menio. Says Menio, “I have been running fan-based content for Phish for over 5 years at lawnmemo.com and thought it was time to start to work on my favorite up-and-coming band. We have become great friends over the years and I always have thoughtful and intriguing conversations about music with the members of the band. After speaking with Mike Gantzer and throwing some ideas around, we decided a podcast could be perfect.” So Menio did what any fan in this position would do: he asked the questions he had always wanted answered.The series hopes to capture the fan’s perspective on the music and aims to recap some of the greatest and most memorable moments in Aqueous history. The podcast will shed light on specific songs and shows, talk about the exciting times coming up for the band, and even sit down with some of the fans that have been hanging around the steadily growing scene for years. “There are some interesting characters we plan on interviewing that should provide plenty of entertainment,” elaborates Menio. “Eventually, I plan on interviewing other musicians and people we all respect in the scene to find out their takes on Aqueous, as well. There are so many different perspectives that go into making and following a band and we hope to touch on as many as possible.”The band is fully on board with the podcast idea, and even enlisted their front of house engineer, Ryan Bress, to engineer and mix the episodes. “I was honored when Myke brought the idea of an all Aqueous-themed podcast to me,” says Gantzer. “I was really confident that he would not only do it justice, but take it to a level and depth that would give people a deeper look into the band’s roots, who we are personally, and also dive into our music in a really cool and unprecedented way.”Listen to the first episode of “All In With Aqueous” featuring an interview with Mike Gantzer below:Says Gantzer of All I With Aqueous‘s premiere episode, “It was amazing to be the guest for the podcast’s maiden voyage, and Myke came prepared with some amazing questions; it made for a situation in which I was able to reflect much deeper on the whole thing, and ultimately get much more personal with my thoughts about the band, my band mates, and even dive down the rabbit hole of memories and silliness and ups and downs in my 10 years with Aqueous that I never had before (on record) really. I’m excited for what this podcast will yield in the future as Myke brings different guests and band mates into the mix!”All future episodes of All In With Aqueous will be available here.[Cover Photo via Bill McAlaine]last_img read more

Library access from afar

first_imgHarvard University today (Jan. 20) launched the library module of the Harvard mobile app, offering access to the world’s largest university research library from virtually anywhere.The University is restructuring its library system in response to a rapidly changing technological and intellectual landscape, and the app will allow the Harvard Library to better serve patrons who increasingly rely on an array of mobile devices. It gives users access to the HOLLIS catalog, a database containing 12.8 million records of journals, manuscripts, government documents, maps, microforms, music scores, sound recordings, visual materials, and data files in the University’s collection. In addition, users will be able to access information about Harvard’s library facilities and archive collections.“Academic libraries must not only collect and preserve materials, but must also be engines of innovation in this rapidly changing world,” said Helen Shenton, executive director of the new Harvard Library. “This is a big step toward making the Harvard Library collections accessible to our patrons, regardless of their location or platform.”Harvard launched its University-wide mobile initiative — both a native iPhone app and a mobile web application for any Internet-enabled phone — last September, providing users with access to campus maps, directories, and dining hall menus, as well as University news, events, shuttle schedules, and course catalogs. Since then, the native iPhone app has been downloaded more than 10,000 times, and the mobile web application has received hundreds of thousands of page views from campus community and visitors. The University will continue to develop and improve these applications, and expand the initiative by bringing in more mobile-aware and mobile-appropriate content.The Harvard native iPhone app is free and can be used with the iPhone 4, 3GS, and 3G hardware, but users must download the free iOS 4 software update. Users with earlier versions of the iPhone app can access the new library component by refreshing the app. The mobile web application is available at m.harvard.edu.The library component is the product of a collaboration among Harvard Public Affairs and Communications, Modo Labs in Cambridge, and staff in Harvard University Library’s Office for Information Systems. Library staff provided key user testing as the mobile-friendly site was completed earlier this month.The site is located at http://m.harvard.edu/libraries/.last_img read more

SDB hosts week to increase disability awareness

first_imgIn an effort to increase knowledge about mental and learning disabilities, the Student Diversity Board (SDB) is hosting a week dedicated to raising awareness around the Saint Mary’s campus among students, faculty and staff. Disabilities Awareness Week, which continues today and ends Friday, is an annual event SDB organizes in order to encourage students to educate themselves about disabilities. Senior Maggie Galvin, SDB president, said the week is especially important to highlight students at Saint Mary’s who experience different types of disabilities. “Student Diversity Board hosts Disabilities Awareness Week to shed light on the various disabilities on Saint Mary’s campus,” she said. “So many girls are living with unseen disabilities and struggling with them every day – from learning disabilities to mental disabilities.” According to Galvin, another goal of the week is to prevent the formation of stereotypes and judgments. She said people need to understand that having a disability is something people of all types and backgrounds experience. “Student Diversity Board would like to show that disabilities, whether they can be seen or not, should not be ignored and more prevalent than one may think,” she said. “We started to fulfill this goal last year with our posters of celebrities and their disabilities, which will continue with this year’s week.” Rhonda Tomenko, a communicative disorders professor at the College, will conduct hearing screenings today from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the Student Center atrium as part of Disabilities Awareness Week.  “Hearing screens are administered to children because of school rules, but as we age we do not receive them anymore unless one notices a problem with their hearing,” Galvin said. “With how loudly we listen to our music in our ear buds, it is very important to know if you have any sort of hearing loss.” On Wednesday, SDB will show a movie from 8 to 10 p.m. in Vander Vennet Theater in the basement of the Student Center. Galvin said the movie choice has not been determined yet but will either be “Aphasia” or “Tru Confessions.” “‘Tru Confessions’ is a Disney Channel movie about a girl who makes a documentary about her brother who has a developmental disability that causes him to act like a child,” Galvin said. “‘Aphasia’ is a documentary about one father’s struggle to relearn how to speak after he has a stroke.” On Thursday, the board will hang posters around campus that showcase different celebrities with learning and mood disabilities. “I love walking around campus and seeing girls reading the posters of celebrities and saying ‘Oh! Steve Jobs was dyslexic?’” she said. “It really sinks in that anyone can be living with a disability and you would never know.” Galvin said Disabilities Awareness Week is an important asset to the Saint Mary’s community and students have a lot to learn. “Students should attend the events for Disabilities Awareness Week because they are engaging as well as educational.” Contact Bridget Feeney at [email protected]last_img read more

Garth Brooks to host soundcheck free to Notre Dame students

first_imgIn Monday night’s “Inside Studio G: A Monday Night Conversation,” Garth Brooks announced that the Notre Dame community can attend his soundcheck for free on Oct. 19, the night before his concert at Notre Dame Stadium.“We’re going to [do a] question and answer during soundcheck and you can actually see behind the curtain on what’s happening,” he said in the Facebook Live conversation. “So this should all be pretty cool. This is all weather permitting.”Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross students can gain free entry into the soundcheck with a mobile ticket reserved in advance, Mike Seamon, vice president for campus safety and event management, said in an email to students Thursday. Students also must present their ID cards at Notre Dame Stadium’s Rockne Gate, which will open at 7 p.m., 30 minutes before the event starts.The event is expected to last about an hour. Brooks said the soundcheck serves as an opportunity to rehearse for the concert. Brooks’ wife, Trisha Yearwood, will also be present at the sound check to answer questions.“You run through the spots of where you’re going to be, you’re kind of rehearsing but you’re also feeling what the stadium feels like,” Brooks said. “You’re out on the very points, as far as you can get away from each other out there and see how you hear. A lot of it’s tech, a lot of it’s the guys running through. It’s one last shot before they drop the flag and here we go.”Brooks described the Notre Dame concert as “a chapter in the next book of our lives” and said he looked forward to the soundcheck before his concert.“I’m hoping it’s beautiful, I’m hoping it’s perfect weather and I’m hoping there’s interested people showing up and coming out here and seeing us,” he said. “You can ask any questions about the business, about whatever.”Updated Oct. 11 at 8:30 p.m.Tags: Garth Brooks, Garth Brooks Concert, Notre Dame Stadium, sound checklast_img read more

Food Law Shifts Focus

first_imgShoppers’ demand for fresh produce year-round has already increased the supply of imported foods. A University of Georgia scientist said tougher enforcement of a new food safety law may bring even more foods across the border.And with the rising imports may come even more of the pesticide and pathogen problems the law is meant to stop. Congress passed the Food Quality Protection Act in 1996. The bill reflected the findings of a two-year National Academy of Science study of the effects of pesticides on fruits and vegetables among infants and small children. The FQPA requires the Environmental Protection Agency to reevaluate every pesticide food tolerance — about 9,000 of them. “These new controls may force more and more of our growers out of business,” said Paul Guillebeau, an Extension Service entomologist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “That would force us to have to import more foods.” The main safety concerns with imported foods usually are bacterial contamination. But pesticides can be a problem, too. “We’re already getting more and more imported foods. And the inspectors are overwhelmed,” Guillebeau said. “They can only test a small sample. Besides, we have little control over other countries’ pesticides uses.” The NAS study changed the focus of pesticide safety from adults to children, he said. “If it’s deemed dangerous to children, a pesticide can’t remain registered as it is.” Pesticides were first registered only individually. And if a pesticide was being registered for use on food, they considered only its effect on food. Now, though, the EPA will consider them in groups. And any nonoccupational use will be counted as part of the food tolerance. “Food tolerances have to consider all those avenues and their effect on children,” Guillebeau said. “It certainly sounds like a good idea. No one is against protecting children. “But the question is: how much is a child exposed if, say, a termite exterminator uses a chemical?” he said. “The situation may appear more dangerous than it is.” From the farmer’s point of view, Guillebeau said, growers will lose important pesticides. They use those products to grow high-quality, affordable food. “EPA had proposed something very drastic like canceling large numbers of organophosphates, carbamates and others, including vital fungicides,” he said. Guillebeau said those chemical groups account for 70 percent of pesticide applications. “Without some of those fungicides, we simply couldn’t produce many of the crops we grow in Georgia,” he said. EPA’s approach to the act was to suddenly take all the suspect chemicals off the market. “It was scary for a while,” Guillebeau said. “Congress had intended a more orderly approach, a more organized, gradual shift away from the pesticides identified as dangerous for children.” Letters from the Senate and House ag subcommittees and Vice President Al Gore have urged EPA to allow farmers more time, technical help and support to devise new pest management plans. “Pesticide action groups are working from the other side,” Guillebeau said. “They hold EPA to a very strict deadline. They hope to get a lot of these things off the market fast. It’s a real political firefight.”last_img read more

Reopening economy too early could backfire for humans and markets, investors say

first_imgLast week, Trump urged Americans to halt most social activities for 15 days. It is unclear what power Trump actually has to simply turn the economy back on by executive order.News of Trump reopening the US economy anytime soon would not be taken well by investors, who remain anxious about the coronavirus’ uncertain trajectory and its economic toll, said Axel Merk, chief investment officer of Merk Investments.“Markets will react badly because they have learned that this approach doesn’t work,” Merk said. “From a medical point of view, you have to break the exponential growth and you do that with shelter in place policies.”The S&P 500 Index sank 3 percent on Monday. It is down more than 30 percent from its Feb. 19 peak and is at levels not seen since the end of 2016, giving up nearly all of its gains from before Trump was elected. Bleak estimatesInitial estimates of the pandemic’s economic fallout have grown bleaker in recent days.US unemployment could hit 30 percent and second-quarter economic output could be half the norm, St. Louis Federal Reserve President James Bullard said.Jennifer Pline, head of wealth management for Cambridge Trust in Boston, said it is too soon to judge whether to reopen the economy just yet.“As we’re just starting to close things down fairly tightly, we need to wait a while until we get more traction and less contagion with the virus.”The cost of a mistake could be deadly. A March 16 study by Imperial College in London predicts 2.2 million deaths in the United States in an unmitigated epidemic, with critical care bed capacity exceeded as early as the second week in April.Economists at Northwestern University and Berlin’s Freie University estimated an “optimal containment policy” in the United States would deepen the subsequent recession but save 600,000 lives.Ellis Phifer, market strategist for Raymond James in Memphis, Tenn. said he has struggled with the question of whether it would be best to reopen parts of the economy.“It’s really hard to determine which costs more,” Phifer said of the dueling approaches of lifting restrictions sooner or later. On balance, he would be inclined to follow the advice of public health experts like Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who have largely advocated for more restrictions.Testing keyIn an interview last week, Richmond Federal Reserve president Thomas Barkin said any call to try to resume normal economic activity will depend on widespread testing quick enough that businesses can establish protocols to ensure worker and customer safety.David Kotok, chairman & chief investment officer of Cumberland Advisors, said what is imperative is to get accurate antibody tests, and to read the recovery rate as well as confirmed cases and deaths.“I don’t think the market will get the economic growth if people are dying all over the place,” said Kotok.Others thought that the more important thing would be to get the economy back open.“You leave this USA shut for another 60 days and you may have no economy or healthcare left,” said John Lekas at Leader Capital.Rob Arnott, founder of asset manager Research Affiliates said the toll of job losses and other economic hardship that may stem from shutdowns and other measures could potentially be more harmful than the virus itself.“Our way of handling this will kill a lot more people than it saves,” said Arnott.But now the measures are taken and the population is fearful, there may be no going back.Gregory Daco, Chief US Economist at Oxford Economics, said even if the lockdowns were lifted, “businesses and households would remain very cautious, and financial intermediation would remain under stress… And, with the rest of the world under lockdown, you would presumably further alienate yourself.”Topics : US President Donald Trump’s desire to rapidly reopen the economy despite signs the coronavirus is still spreading may backfire, with higher deaths and citizens remaining fearful of going out, some investors said.US markets have been roiled by the spread of the virus in the country and as states have shut parts of their economies.Trump said on Monday that at the end of a 15-day shutdown period, which would run to the end of the month, “we will make a decision as to which way we want to go.”last_img read more

Seacor-Montco liftboat joint venture goes live

first_imgU.S. offshore vessel owner Seacor Marine has closed its joint venture with liftboat specialist Montco Offshore (MOI) announced last year.Namely, Seacor Marine last June announced a stalking horse bid to form a joint venture with Montco Offshore which had earlier filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This type of bid allows the distressed company to avoid low bids on its assets and choose the stalking horse to make the first bid.The U.S. bankruptcy court approved the stalking horse bid in January 2018, allowing the two companies to continue with their JV plans.On Friday, February 9 Seacor Marine announced that the formation and capitalization of the new joint venture company with MOI was consummated on February 8, 2018.In accordance with the terms of a joint venture contribution and formation agreement, Seacor Marine and MOI contributed certain liftboat vessels and other related assets to the joint venture, and the joint venture assumed certain operating liabilities and indebtedness associated with the liftboat vessels and related assets.The joint venture consolidates the ownership and operation of eleven liftboat vessels previously operated by a wholly-owned subsidiary of Seacor Marine, six liftboat vessels previously operated by MOI, and two liftboat vessels previously operated by a previously existing joint venture between an affiliate of MOI and an affiliate of Seacor Marine.The JV assumed approximately $131 million of indebtedness from MOI’s pre-petition facilities which, apart from a guarantee of interest payments for two years after the closing of the transactions, is non-recourse to Seacor Marine.Seacor Marine holds approximately 72% of all equity interests in the JV, and is entitled to appoint a majority of the board of managers of the JV.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

Chelsea demand £80m N’Golo Kante transfer fee

first_img Conte is also keen on fellow Chelsea stars Olivier Giroud and Emerson Palmieri from his former side – although faces a stand-off with Inter to get his transfer requests approved. The Italian outfit also need to raise funds in order to fund a move for Kante, even before trying to match his £150,000-a-week wages. Roberto Gagliardini, Matias Vecino, Marcelo Brozovic and even Eriksen could all be shipped out to finance the transfer.

The Frenchman, 29, is facing an uncertain future with Frank Lampard still seemingly undecided whether or not to keep him in his plans. And according to the Express, the Blues have decided they would accept any offers of £80m should they come in. Inter Milan look the most likely side to land Kante in this transfer window. Former Blues boss Antonio Conte brought Kante from Leicester to Stamford Bridge in 2016. And it is thought the Italian would be keen on a reunion at the San Siro. Conte has already snapped up Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Christian Eriksen, Ashley Young and Victor Moses from the Premier League since joining Inter a year ago. But landing the World Cup and two-time Premier League winner would be a major coup for the Europa League finalists, who are also eyeing Lionel Messi.Advertisementcenter_img Loading… last_img read more

Flatlander IMCA Modified checkers fly for Gemmill, Heim

first_imgGOODLAND, Kan. (Sept. 26-27) – Long runs at the front ended with Brendon Gemmill and Chris Heim $1,500 richer for their IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified efforts at Sherman County Speed­way’s Flatlander special. Gemmill was scored first on all but the first circuit on Friday night at Goodland despite a souring power plant. Heim, a weekly regular at Goodland, was even more dominating with a flag-to-flag run on Saturday. Their victories put both drivers on the ballot for the 2015 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. A single caution slowed the opening night Modified main seven laps in. Gemmill’s motor started missing and it took a couple circuits for him to get his momentum back. “I thought something was goofy. I thought it was a fuel issue but I was down a cylinder,” said Gem­mill, who nonetheless caught up with the back of the pack the last time around. “We’ve strug­gled a bit this year but made a lot of changes and now I think we’re competitive again.” Brady Coen, Clay Sellard, Jeremy Frenier and Bubba Alvarado were next across the stripe.Heim drew the pole for the caution-free Saturday show. He caught up with lapped traffic near mid­way and scored his fifth feature win of the season comfortably ahead of Frenier.“There was a lot of good competition here,” Heim said. “I ran one groove off the bottom. It just seemed like there wasn’t much on the top side. I’d rather run there but you’ve got to go where it’s going to work.” Rounding out the top five were Jeff Hunter, Coen and John Hansen. IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winners at the 25th annual Flatlander were Nick Tubbs and Justin Bus­sell. Darren Crouch and Chad Dolan won Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main events and Colin Heim and Eric Ross were IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock winners. Tubbs extended his opening night and two-day overall point success to a fifth straight Flatlander. After starting seventh, he was one of the few drivers to try the high side, had the lead by halfway and beat Wheat Lippelmann across the line by three car lengths.A Flatlander winner previously in the super stocks, Bussell scored his career first sanctioned vic­tory on Saturday. Tubbs had started 13th and was in the lead when the white flag came out; Bus­sell picked the right line to pass Nick Tubbs and Jeff Tubbs after the front three encountered a lapped car. “It felt awesome,” Bussell said. “I think we’ve finished in the top four in every Flatlander for five years.” A single caution slowed Friday’s SportMod main. Crouch had started third, took the lead on the eighth of 20 laps and was catching up to the back on the field with a couple circuits left. Bryan Herrick closed in before Crouch motored away.Dolan led every lap of Saturday’s caution-slowed contest and won ahead of Eric Munoz. “This was one of the biggest wins of my career, because it came just after my brother had passed away and because it was the 25th annual Flatlander,” he said. “It was pretty emotional. It was just meant to be. Everything that needed to happen happened.” A junior at Hoxie High School, Colin Heim took his Friday night Hobby Stock foes to class in lead­ing every lap of a green to checkered feature. “It’s always to end the season with a win,” said Heim, who rebuffed Michael Brunswick for the victory. Ross needed five trips around the track to race from fourth to first on Saturday, making the most of the middle line.Kyle Pfeifer passed Heim following a restart with three laps to go but Ross stayed strong up front and won by four car lengths. Both Modified, Stock Car and Northern SportMod features doubled as Blood, Sweat and Tears Series events. Champions in those respective divisions were Frenier, Angel Munoz and Dolan.

Dougherty: Clemson football culture shows why Syracuse will stay behind

first_img Published on October 27, 2014 at 12:20 am Facebook Twitter Google+ CLEMSON, S.C. — Half a dozen fields are filled with tailgaters seven hours before kickoff, sweet tea is the same price as water and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. There are as many Clemson-themed tents as there are cars and RVs and a cutout of Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney is holding a cake and wishing a 4-year-old fan named Bobby “A Happy Clemson Birthday” in a speech bubble.Syracuse and No. 21 Clemson are set to kick off at 7 p.m. And just past noon on homecoming Saturday there is more than enough orange paraphernalia to fill 10 Carrier Domes and enough purple to satisfy years of Mardi Gras parades.There’s no game to watch, not yet, but it’s already the consummate Atlantic Coast Conference football environment. Welcome to Tiger town. Clemson country. Death Valley.“They just love football,” SU offensive coordinator Tim Lester said of the atmosphere at Clemson. “The environment was electric and we were excited to be a part of it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse (3-5, 1-3 ACC) head coach Scott Shafer was recently asked how his Orange can start bridging the gap between ACC powers like Clemson (6-2, 5-1) and Florida State and he aptly pointed to the recruiting trails.But gameday in Clemson, which with kids sliding down hills on flattened cardboard while their parents drank beers ended with a 16-6 Syracuse loss, detailed SU’s disadvantages that transcend records and coaching staffs.Shafer referenced a disparity in talent with the Tigers after the Orange’s loss and while he didn’t connect it to the Clemson atmosphere, it is a feasible factor.The difference between the football cultures in Clemson and Syracuse showed that recruiting one or two four-star recruits and piecing together above-average classes isn’t the antidote to SU football’s mediocrity.It’s more of a meek starting point.“That environment,” Shafer said after the game, “I’ll tell you, that’s a special place and they do a hell of a job there.”Try and pretend you’re a few inches taller, a few seconds faster and looking for a place to live and play college football for three or four years.Put aside the pedigrees of each program, Clemson as a perennial contender and Syracuse as a consistently inconsistent middle-of-the-pack program. Forget all that and think about the environment you’d want to play in if you were visiting these campuses, or ones like them, and had a choice between the two.You could walk to the stadium in late October and see a gathering here and there, some blow-ups on the school quad and have to zip up your warmup to the top of your neck and maybe even don a team beanie. Or you could fight your way through a sea of tailgates, smell a mix of southern barbecue and eventually take a bus to the top of Memorial Stadium and run down a hill with your teammates to a chorus of 80,031 raucous cheers.It’s not that Syracuse doesn’t have things to offer. It does. It has a solid track record in the NFL and has more to offer to student-athletes than a lot of schools. But if the goal is to eventually contend with schools like Clemson and Florida State for top talent, there’s the undeniable fact that high school players like shiny things, die-hard student bodies and alumni, and full, loud stadiums in nice weather.In that department, Syracuse can’t contend until it clears out lots for pregame partying, recruits tens of thousands of fans to create a tailgating metropolis and in that atmosphere makes fans stay until the ends of games. Those aren’t the kinds of changes you can make over night. Or even over a year. They are cultural changes that build on family tradition, championship banners and, unluckily for the Orange, the right climate. “I just want to keep fighting so when we get them back in the Dome, I want their coach to walk away and say, ‘That Dome was crazy, that was hard,’” Shafer said. “That’s my goal. And the only way we do that is to keep getting our team better. Keep our folks back home believing in us in tough times. “We just have to keep finding ways.”And to that, I say good luck.

Getting the right picture, or getting the picture right?

first_imgDear Editor,Getting the right picture, or getting the picture right? In response to WPA’s criticisms of the high-handed manner in which WPA Executive Member David Hinds was booted out of the pages of the State-owned Guyana Chronicle as a fifth columnist, a picture of President David Granger and WPA’s co-leader Rupert Roopnaraine embracing each other graced the pages of the Chronicle, along with a plea by Roopnaraine for the WPA to remain within the APNU. It was obvious that the Chronicle’s picture was worth a thousand words.The article featured Roopnaraine’s appeal to the WPA not to break away from the APNU and the governing coalition of the APNU/AFC. The WPA is an integral part of the APNU. It is interesting to note that presidential candidate Granger, in the 2015 elections, campaigned with a picture of Moses Nagamootoo and himself as a symbol of racial unity. What exactly was the picture of the President and Roopnaraine projecting in the current situation?After running with David Granger in the 2011 elections, Roopnaraine and the WPA cleared the way for Moses Nagamootoo to become the Prime Minister in 2015. At the press conference announcing the signing of the Cummingsburg Accord, when asked by a reporter if the WPA was not concerned that it had lost its place and was now a junior partner, Tacuma Ogunseye responded that, for the WPA, the national interest was more important than the party’s interest, and that was a price that the WPA was willing to pay to advance the country.As was pointed out in Ogunseye’s account of events in relation to the 2011 elections, the PNCR wanted an Indian prime ministerial candidate to run with presidential candidate Granger. This was to symbolize racial outreach within the APNU platform.The abrupt termination of the Walter Rodney Commission of Inquiry (WRCOI) posed a serious challenge to the WPA very early in the life of the new Government. Roopnaraine’s silence on this matter exposed the WPA to ridicule both at home and abroad. At the same time, it proved to President Granger that he could rely on Roopnaraine to subvert the will of the WPA.The manner in which Roopnaraine was assigned the Ministry of Education without any consultations whatsoever with the WPA revealed a single-mindedness of President Granger in party politics. Roopnaraine’s assignment as Education Minister was arbitrarily decided. His subsequent removal from the ministry and reassignment to another ministry in the most bizarre of manner displayed a contempt for both Roopnaraine and the WPA that would have made the Mona Lisa weep.The debate surrounding the posturing of Roopnaraine is now a source of great concern for the WPA. There is an obvious and glaring problem when Tacuma Ogunseye put the possibility of the WPA withdrawing from the APNU coalition if it is not treated with some respect, only to be contradicted by Roopnaraine. There was no explanation whatsoever on the part of Dr Roopnaraine on why the WPA must be treated in such a disgraceful manner and remain within APNU.The Chronicle picture portrays a message of racial unity, disregarding three years of non-consultation with the WPA on serious matters of Government policies, placing it in a delicate position were it to attempt to discipline Roopnaraine.Any attempt by the WPA to deal with Roopnaraine’s misguided role as it affects the well-being of the WPA may be open to exploitation by opponents of the WPA. These opponents will seek to portray it as an attempt by the African members of the party to rid itself of one of its Indian leaders, a possibility that has forced the WPA to tread carefully on this matter. But failure to resolve this issue will only continue to do more damage to the WPA. The party will have to trust the public’s opinion as to whether it has acted correctly on this matter, and will have to deal with it in a transparent manner, so that the right image can be projected.Sincerely,Rohit KanhaiMember of Working People’s Alliance Overseas Associates (WPAOA)last_img read more

Police secure extension to hold RK guards

first_imgCrime Chief Wendell Blanhum on Friday confirmed the Police Force can lawfully detain RK’s security guards, Damion Pearce and Cleveland Pyle in connection with the robbery committed at an East Coast Demerara bank on Monday evening.According to the Crime Chief the Police are expected to wrap up their investigations over the weekend and once legal advice is had, the men will make a court appearance in the new week.He also stated that based on information, they are hunting two others who were also part of the staged robbery.The two men reportedly confessed to the robbery during interrogation by police while at the same time implicating two others.On Monday last, Pearce and Pyle who are attached to the RK Security Service were taking cash to the ECD bank to be deposited when they claimed they were relieved of the money and the firearms they were carrying.During the well-orchestrated robbery, one of the men shot himself to the leg to make it look as if they were attacked by armed gunmen.Following their confession, the duo led police to an A Field Sophia, Georgetown, house where they dug up the $3 million from the back yard. The guns which they claimed were taken by the bandits were also unearthed at the same location. The occupant of the house at the time who is the girlfriend of Pearce was taken into police custody.Attempts to contact the owner of RK Security for a comment proved futile.

Foreign Affairs Ministry yet to receive report of incident

first_imgStranded IndonesiansGuyana’s Foreign Affairs Ministry said that it was yet to receive an official report on the incident involving 26 Indonesian nationals, who have been stranded in Guyana for the past five days. The men were brought to Guyana to work with a popular fishing establishment, but were relieved of their duties after raising objection to their remuneration package.“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will like to state that while it has seen references to the issue in the media, the matter hasn’t been brought to the attention of the Ministry and, therefore, as of now the Ministry has no role in relation to the matter,” the Public Relations Department of the Ministry said in a statement to Guyana Times.The stranded IndonesiansThe men reported that they were offered US$400 (5,367,200 Indonesian Rupiah) per month to come and work with the popular fishing establishment, but they were being paid in Guyanese dollars, which did not translate into the promised amount. They objected to this, but got no satisfaction and were ordered out of the fishing establishment’s Providence branch and have been seeking refuge at the Providence Sunnatul Masjid ever since.When this publication reached out to the company, via telephone, the representatives refused to given any information relating to the incident and subsequently disconnected the call.A female member of the Masjid told this newspaper that the brothers at the mosque made contact with the Indonesian Embassy in neighbouring Suriname and a representative was expected in Guyana on Monday to address the men’s situation, but it was unclear if the representative did arrive.last_img read more

Jagdeo in favour of non-custodial sentences for small quantities of marijuana

first_img– says APNU and AFC divided on issue; accuses AFC of being ‘opportunistic’Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has thrown his support for custodial sentences for small quantities of marijuana to be removed from the law books in its entirety, but maintained that he is not in favour of the legalisation of marijuana for commercial purposes.Jagdeo made this announcement on Thursday during his weekly press conference at his Church Street, Georgetown office. He reminded that the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has made a commitment to support a ‘conscience vote’ should the matter come up for a vote in the National Assembly.“To send somebody, a young person or even an older person…to jail for less than a quarter ounce of marijuana for three years, when we have people who are traffickers, and we have people growing large quantities of marijuana, becauseOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeothey have money they get off from the system,” he explained.The former President said he is not opposed to having them face some penalty, but he would recommend alternative or non-custodial sentencing such as: community work and rehabilitation. “Sentence them to community work, sentence them to rehabilitation… you don’t want them locked away,” he added.Jagdeo noted that it was not a contentious issue as that of the death penalty and could be resolved.Further, the PPP General Secretary noted that it is clear that the Alliance For Change (AFC) and the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) is divided on the issue. Also, the AFC he said, has used the recent sentencing of a father to three years to speak about it, describing the party as opportunistic.For almost three years, the AFC has still not managed to find support from the APNU to support the motion in the name of AFC parliamentarian, Michael Carrington, to move the first reading of the Narcotics Drug and Psychotropic Substances (Control) (Amendment) Bill. The motion to have the first reading of the Bill was tabled since December 10, 2015. The Bill itself has not been made public.Former AFC Chairman Nigel Hughes, with the help of Attorney Mark Waldron, had drafted the bill, which seeks to soften the penalties for marijuana possession. That draft bill stipulates that persons who are found in possession of the drug for personal use would be required to pay a fine of $10,000, or perform community service for a period of time, something that is being widely supported.But Jagdeo also explained that calls for public consultation on this very issue by Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams, is just an attempt to delay the issue. He said AFC members in Government are also being pressured by its party members to push for the changes to the marijuana laws. “Their best way to deal with it (division) is to push it off via a call for public consultation,” Jagdeo observed.He said, “This public consultation, I think is to solve the contradiction that they have among themselves.” When questioned as to whether he would support looking into the economic benefits of marijuana, Jagdeo said, “I am not supporting the legalisation of marijuana, growing marijuana, trading marijuana, selling marijuana in Guyana, you go to jail for that sort of thing, that’s our law I am not supporting that.”Minister of State Joseph Harmon has also affirmed that decriminalising the use of this substance is not on its immediate radar. He instead has laid that responsibility at the feet of the Judiciary, stating that the matter of sentencing lies within the purview of the Judiciary.“With respect to decriminalisation of marijuana, that is not a matter that is engaging our immediate attention. What we have (is) a motion in the National Assembly by one of our members about the sentencing policy with regard to marijuana,” he explained.Carrington’s draft legislation intended to reduce the penalties attached to possession of small amounts of marijuana intended for personal use has been pending for a year now in Parliament.While a number of developed countries have acted to decriminalise marijuana, and the movement is gaining momentum worldwide, President David Granger has instead cautioned against buying into practices being embarked upon by developed countries that have the requisite framework in place to support such legislative reforms.The President has made it clear that such reforms are currently not a concern of the Government; and, on a more personal note, has declared that he would not subscribe to the usage of marijuana.According to Guyana’s Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (Control) Act, once someone has summarily been convicted of possession of any narcotic, that person is liable to be imprisoned – for at least three years and at most five. There is also a fine attached to such conviction.last_img read more

Ramjattan’s “more charges” utterance validates PPP’s claims of political witch-hunting – Nandlall

first_imgOne day after Alliance For Change (AFC) Chairman and Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan said the coalition Administration will continue to prosecute more former Government officials under the previous People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) regime, even if it is perceived as political witch-hunting, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall posited that the Minister’s utterance has reaffirmed his party’s position all along.“Minister Khemraj Ramjattan has emphatically confirmed what we have been saying all along, that is, that the criminal charges that are being filed against former Ministers and officials of the PPP Government, are politically inspired and driven,” Nandlall asserted.At a press conference on Friday, Ramjattan admitted he is well aware of the perception that Government was victimising political opponents but he insisted that they will continue along that path.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan“I am aware that the prosecution of a predecessor who belongs to a competing political party, is likely to be perceived as politically motivated… We have evidence, it’s warranted and so it will move on,” he said, adding that “otherwise members of this Government may feel the need to practice selling State properties without the lawful procedures. We cannot allow that.”Last year, several former Government officials including former President and current Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo were hauled in for questioning over the acquisition of lands on the East Coast of Demerara. Moreover, last month charges were brought against former Finance Minister, Dr Ashni Singh and former National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL) Chief Executive Officer Winston Brassington by the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) in relation to the sale of three plots of lands to investors.However, Nandlall, who is among the battery of lawyers representing the two former Government officials, pointed out that in a normal democracy, which is governed by the rule of law, the Executive Government and Ministers have no business whatsoever, in the institution and of criminal charges. These matters, he posited, fall within the exclusive remit of the constitutional agencies, that is, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the Guyana Police Force, which are functionally autonomous and independent agencies that are strongly insulated in law from any type of political and ministerial influence or interference.“So how does Minister Ramjattan know that there are more charges to be filed against former Ministers? Does he also know if and what charges are going to be filed by Police against every Guyanese? I am sure he does not. But he knows that charges will be filed against former Ministers because he is part of a political directorate that is instructing behind the scenes, that these charges be filed,” the former Attorney General insisted.Nandlall went on to remind that Ramjattan had admitted publicly of knocking glasses with British Advisor to SOCU, Dr Sam Sittlington; Head of SOCU, Sydney James; and a diplomat at city nightspot on the evening one day after when Jagdeo along with former Head of Presidential Secretariat, Dr Roger Luncheon, former Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee and other leaders of the PPP/C were arrested and taken to SOCU.“When Sittlington’s contract ended, Ramjattan boasted in the press that he will bring him back because he has a lot of work to do. Indeed, Sittlington is now back. Mr Ramjattan is an experienced lawyer. As a result, I know that he knows that what he is doing is wrong. However, hatred, political vengeance and his desire for revenge, have destroyed his objectivity and his sense of reason. But I wish to remind him of an old saying that every rope, no matter how long, has an end,” Nandlall said.last_img read more

Euro 2016: Germany 0-2 France: Griezmann double books hosts’ final place

first_imgAntoine Griezmann netted a double to book France’s place in the Euro 2016 final, sending world champions Germany home with a 2-0 win at Stade Velodrome.Didier Deschamps’ men will face Portugal in Sunday’s match at Stade de France – LIVE on talkSPORT – thanks to a hard-fought performance against Joachim Low’s side.The Germans dominated possession in the first half, but the Euro 2016 hosts were ahead seconds before the interval as Bastian Schweinsteiger was penalised for a handball in the box. Forward Griezmann, 25, stepped up to send Manuel Neuer the wrong way from the spot. The normally reliable Neuer was at fault in the second half as he dropped the ball when collecting a cross, which the Atletico Madrid striker tidied up, reacting quickest to put his side two up, edging them closer to the final.Germany looked to pull one back, with Hugo Lloris making a stunning save late on as the French also took home a clean sheet.The atmosphere was electric in Marseille before kick-off and the game started openly, with Germany dominating possession and France struggling to get the ball without N’Golo Kante, who was on the bench.The host nation nearly scored one of the goals of the tournament after six minutes when Griezmann combined brilliantly with Blaise Matuidi. The latter made two neat one-twos on the left with the Atletico forward, who eventually got a flicked return on the edge of the box but he was on his weaker right foot and Neuer made a comfortable save.Olivier Giroud should have put the men in blue ahead when he was sent clean through on goal. He raced through but he lacked pace as the German defence soon tracked back to prevent him from getting a shot off.While the Germans had more of the ball, they had less chances as Lloris was rarely tested. On the occasion the Tottenham goalkeeper was called into action, he performed brilliantly, diving low to his right to get a hand to Emre Can’s 10-yard strike.France were penned in, as a Germany goal looked imminent, but it was Deschamps’ men again who had more testing efforts, Neuer saving Payet’s free-kick with relative ease.Griezmann looked sharp throughout and, as the game looked to be heading into the break still goalless, the Frenchman stepped up to coolly convert a penalty on 45 minutes. That came after Schweinsteiger was pulled up for a handball in the box when he jumped for a header, and the Atletico man made no mistake.Germany suffered a cruel blow early in the second half when Jerome Boateng pulled up with a suspected hamstring problem and the former Manchester City defender had to be replaced.As Boateng sat on the bench worried about potentially missing the final, his side conceded a second just over ten minutes later.As Pogba – linked with a move to Manchester United in a reported £100million deal – found space on the left, he was soon closed down but he showed fancy footwork to put the ball onto his weaker foot, sending a cross in from the left wing. The normally cool Neuer came out but he fumbled the ball and it fell to Griezmann, who needed no second invitation to drill through a crowded box into an empty goal.Germany looked like they would react well by pulling one back as right-back Joshua Kimmich, of Bayern Munich, sent a curling shot past Lloris and crashing into the upright.Low’s men struggled to find a way through in the closing stages, with Griezmann nearly grabbing a hat-trick on the counter, as Deschamps’ men booked their place in the final. 1 Antoine Griezmann: The Atletico Madrid frontman netted twice to book France’s place in the final last_img read more

Lazier lashes out at Patrick

first_img On Monday, Lazier was more upset with Patrick’s words than the contact. She let out various insults about Lazier on Sunday. “Lazier was a problem all day,” Patrick said. “He’s been a problem for years.” Danica Patrick accepted the IRL’s Rookie of the Year award Monday night along with some unkind words from Jaques Lazier. A day after Patrick made some kind of contact with Lazier in the back of an IRL safety vehicle, the issue remained a hotly debated topic at a postseason party at Paramount Studios. “It doesn’t matter if it was a tap, but there’s no room for that in this series,” he said. “It was contact, and it’s inexcusable in my book.” Lazier continued, questioning her behavior and experience. “She’s a rookie this year,” he said. “She could not possibly know my history in the IRL. I have built a reputation for being a clean driver. To be attacked like that is inexcusable, and that shows her inexperience.” The punch or tap was the first known fisticuffs in the IRL since A.J. Foyt shoved Arie Luyendyk following a race at the Texas Motor Speedway in 1997. Foyt wasn’t suspended or fined for the incident by the IRL, which was caught on camera. IRL officials don’t have the benefit of videotape as they attempt to assess what happened in the back of the safety truck, although there was at least one bystander who saw or at the very least heard what took place. Dr. Kevin Scheid, who was driving the SUV, stopped the vehicle briefly to calm Lazier and Patrick en route to the infield care center. “I’m not going to break that tie,” he told the Indianapolis Star. IRL spokesperson Amy Konrath said the series’ investigation would likely stretch into next week. Ganassi, the owner of Lazier’s car, said “something” should happen to Patrick when asked if she deserved to be punished. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DONEGAL TD WANTS TALKS BEFORE JUNIOR CERT IS SCRAPPED

first_imgCharlie McConalogue TDGOVERNMENT plans to scrap the Junior Cert and replace it with class exams and assessments are facing heavy criticism, especially from unions.Ireland is set to introduce a system used in the UK for the past 20 years before being scrapped.Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Education and Skills Charlie McConalogue is urging Education Minister Ruairí Quinn to enter mediation talks with teacher representatives on the proposed reform of the Junior Cert, under the auspicious of an independent mediator. Deputy McConalogue said: “It’s clear that trust needs to be built up in this process or the reform agenda will go nowhere fast.”He added: “I don’t think anyone will benefit from a fractious or divisive process and I do not want to see teachers going down the road of industrial action or non-co-operation or feel that they have to in order for their voices to be heard.“Unfortunately the the Minister has, until now, paid little more than lip service to teachers and many others who have expressed concerns in relation to junior cert reform plans.“I am urging the Minister to act now on the issue and seek to use the conciliation service available at the Labour Relations Commission to build renewed trust among teachers’ unions and the Department of Education. In the event of any form of industrial action both sides will likely end up before the LRC anyway. The Minister should be looking at everything possible to avoid a divisive dispute. “Fundamentally this is about the beginning of a major reform of our education system and we have to get it right from the start. This is about teachers and parents having confidence and trust in the reform agenda and those leading it. Without that confidence I believe the buy-in needed by parents and ultimately the students, who will be directly affected by a reformed Junior Cert, will be harder to gain.“If the Minister is serious about bringing teachers along in this process he will find the appropriate forum to reach out and ensure we have a genuinely inclusive consultation process.” DONEGAL TD WANTS TALKS BEFORE JUNIOR CERT IS SCRAPPED was last modified: January 20th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:assessmentsclass examsJunior Certscrappedlast_img read more

Huge deposit boost for SA platinum

first_img6 February 2013 A huge mineral deposit recently discovered in Limpopo province is even bigger than previously thought, and represents “enormous good news” for the future of platinum mining in South Africa, the head of Canadian company Ivanplats announced at the Investing in African Mining Indaba in Cape Town on Wednesday. Located on the northern limb of South Africa’s Bushveld Complex, the Platreef (or Flatreef) discovery is a massive deposit offering high-quality metals – “650-million tons of indicated and referred resources in a six square kilometre area”, Robert Friedland, the chairman of Ivanhoe Capital Corporation and the executive chairman of Ivanplats, told Indaba delegates.Clean, sustainable model promised In exploiting this reserve, the company promises a clean model, to be environmentally responsible, to have zero fatalities and to be sustainable. It would have a better model of employment and pay above-average wages, and it would have a “very broad-based black economic empowerment” component. It would deliver benefits beyond its mine, Friedland promised, including jobs and new skills. “Beneficiation will be our key driver. We can make catalytic convertors and jewellery right here.” He said that an intensive drilling programme in 2011 and 2012 had dramatically expanded and upgraded Platreef’s precious and base-metal mineral resources.Massive Bushveld deposit Bloomberg reported recently that Platreef’s indicated mineral resources now totalled 223-million tons at a grading of 4.1 grams per ton of platinum, palladium, gold and rhodium, at a cumulative, average true thickness of 24.3 metres. It also has nickel and copper. “Flatreef is distinguished from other Bushveld projects by its tremendous size, the remarkable thickness of the polymetallic mineralised reef and its potential for significant by-product credits of nickel and copper,” Friedland said on Wednesday. “The successful upgrading and expansion of the selective high-grade underground resources advance the definition of the initial mine plan in which we intend to incorporate safe, efficient, large-scale, mechanised mining methods.”Possible South African listing Friedland said Ivanplats would apply to the Department of Mineral Resources for a mining licence “that will have a large BBBEE [broad-based black economic empowerment] component.” The Canadian company, which has been exploring in Africa since 1994, listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange in October 2012. “We are now thinking of listing in South Africa as our secondary listing. Having been here, we think a listing in South Africa is more appropriate than London.” Friedland said it was critical to generate sustainable livelihoods around mines. “We must build mines where younger mine workers are more like skilled surgeons.” Also, the buyers of the end products – the car buyers in Japan, for example – would want to know the product was built with more than muscle power, and that the community around the mine was benefiting too. “We need to work here, find and forge a new economic model,” Friedland said, adding that it was “enormous good news” for South Africa that the discovery was in this country, which already produced 75% of the world’s primary platinum. Friedland was also very upbeat on the future of Africa, and South Africa in particular. “This is the beginning of incredible economic growth in Africa. Seven of the top 10 countries in terms of GDP [gross domestic product] growth are in Africa. Sub-Saharan Africa will have greater GDP growth,” he said. “So I am very optimistic about the future of this country.” He also predicted continuing demand for metals, saying there would be 37 megacities around the world by 2020. “All will need metals, particularly platinum to clean the air,” as well as copper and iron for high-speed trains. “We have come to a point of no return. Planet Earth is going urban. And an urban world is immensely consumptive of metals.” Source: Industrial Development Corporationlast_img read more

Joburg acts to beat climate change

first_imgThe City of Joburg has retrofitted five buildings with energy efficient lights. It plans to do the same with 104 more council buildings. (Image: Media Club South Africa) • Christa Venter Project Assistant C40 Climate Change Summit +27 82 492 2424 • Megacities to talk climate change in Johannesburg • Cities combat climate change • Climate Reality Project counts carbon costs • Green buildings sprouting in South AfricaLucille DavieMitigation and adaptation are universally accepted approaches to tackling climate change. Johannesburg, the host city of the fifth biennial C40 Cities Mayors Summit in February, has a climate change strategy that is in line with these imperatives.The C40 is a network of 63 of the world’s megacities that are taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in an effort to reduce climate risks locally and globally. The summit will bring together mayors for three days, from 4 to 6 February, to consider urban solutions to global climate change “through individual efforts as well as international engagement and collaboration”.“A principle of working together to create and build partnerships is crucial to the success of achieving the city’s strategic agenda, including matters relating to resource sustainability,” says Joburg Executive Mayor Parks Tau. He will host the summit, together with C40 chair Michael Bloomberg, who is the mayor of New York City.City delegates, business people, environmentalists, activists and community representatives are expected to attend. They will deliberate on the progress being made by cities around the world, and suggest interventions that can be jointly undertaken to address environmental issues. The theme for the summit is “Towards resilient and liveable megacities: demonstrating action, impact and opportunity”.“Even if emissions are stabilised relatively soon, climate change and its effects will last many years, and adaptation will be necessary. Climate change adaptation is especially important in developing cities since those cities are predicted to bear the brunt of the effects of climate change.”The city of Johannesburg, the country’s commercial heart – which contributes 16% to the country’s gross domestic product – is among the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases in South Africa, largely from industrial, transport and residential activities. Its long-term growth and development strategy, Joburg 2040, has a strong focus on climate change and depletion of natural resources.Climate change mitigationRegarding climate change mitigation, Joburg’s Rea Vaya Bus Rapid Transit system, introduced in 2009, has resulted in 233 buses taking to the roads, driving in dedicated lanes. It has led to the removal of 500 taxis and minibuses from Joburg’s streets. Some 44 new buses will be introduced to the roads in mid-February, taking the total to 277. Rea Vaya transports more than 50 000 commuters daily.“With the full implementation of Bus Rapid Transit it is estimated that the city will save 1.6 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions by 2020,” explains Matshidiso Mfikoe, the mayoral committee member for environment and infrastructure services.The Rea Vaya buses will eventually transport passengers along 330km through the suburbs and city, with modern fleet buses. This will give more than 80% of Joburg’s residents the choice of catching a bus, placing residents within 500m of a trunk route or feeder corridor. Running on low-sulphur diesel with the most advanced pollution reduction equipment, the Rea Vaya buses are the cleanest on the continent. They reduce nitrous oxides, the most dangerous health risk from vehicular emissions, by thousands of tons a year, and particulate matter, such as soot, by hundreds of tons annually.Joburg aims to replace more than one third of its Metrobus fleet with modern dual fuel green buses in the future. It is also developing a Metrobus gas refuelling station, and has retrofitted five municipal buildings with energy efficient lighting with a total saving of 100 tons of carbon dioxide.“One hundred and four municipal buildings have been identified to be retrofitted under a larger energy efficiency building retrofit programme. This building retrofit programme will include lighting, cooling, and heating systems,” says Mfikoe.Efforts are being made to convert waste to energy. The city is now flaring methane gas at one of its five landfill sites, producing 5MW of renewable electricity, which is sufficient to supply power to 4 500 houses. This reduces the carbon emissions from the landfill by about 149 000 tons of carbon dioxide a year. The other four sites will be operational in the near future, and will generate 19MW of electricity to supply 12 500 households over the next 20 years and beyond.Sections of the city are also being greened, such as the townships of Soweto in south-western Johannesburg. Since 2006, 200 000 trees have been planted in the region. Joburg is already one of the most forested cities in the world, with over 10 million trees, making it an urban forest. This has led to an improvement in the air quality. “Furthermore, there has been rehabilitation of the southern catchments, park developments in disadvantaged areas, and the provision of green servitudes and ecological assessments of the city’s catchments,” adds Mfikoe.Joburg has also installed over a thousand low pressure solar water geysers to households in Cosmo City, a housing development in the north. Installing energy efficient lights and planting fruit trees has also been undertaken. In 2012, it launched the Solar Water Geyser Programme, under which it aims to roll out 110 000 geysers to poor and low income households over three years.Climate change adaptationA Johannesburg Climate Change Adaptation Plan or CCAP was completed in 2009. Adaptation initiatives coming out of this plan include a Vulnerability Assessment and Risk Management Plan, flood modelling for flood prone areas, and disaster response. Johannesburg has several rivers running through its suburbs, which flood readily during the city’s summer heavy rains.The CCAP was recently one of only 29 projects globally nominated for the C40 and Siemens Climate Leadership Award.Guided by the CCAP, Joburg is mapping flood prone areas, developing early warning systems, and raising awareness in vulnerable communities, particularly through Alexandra township. CCAP recommendations have been integrated into long-term city strategy and day-to-day operations.Some 30 organic food gardens were planted in schools and communities between 2010 and 2011, a project that is “a vehicle to grow green minds and hearts”. The project supplements the schools’ feeding programmes, at the same time giving communities an additional source of income through the sale of produce. “Organic food gardens produce fewer greenhouse gases and are better for the environment and our health,” notes Mfikoe.Johannesburg is one of four C40 cities in Africa, along with Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, Cairo in Egypt and Lagos in Nigeria. Climate change affects not only the industrialised but also those living in rural areas, where changes in weather patterns threaten crops and livestock.last_img read more

Falcao gives Brazil a pre-World Cup reality check

The tournament itself is the focus of Tite’s attention, as proved in an experimental line-up that took a 1-1 draw away to Colombia on Tuesday. Almost as a reminder that Russia 2018 will be a different prospect, the coach received a timely jolt of reality after his dream start in the job. Radamel Falcao’s towering header robbed Brazil of their 100 percent record in his tenure – they had won the previous nine qualifiers disputed since Tite’s arrival – and could not complain about a result that reflected each team’s performance fairly. The game was tense and scrappy throughout, with Colombia and Brazil sharing possession in Barranquilla and both enjoying chances. Alisson in the Selecao net had more work to do than usual but looked comfortable enough, while aside from a few pieces of individual magic and his assist for Willian, Neymar was closely watched and struggled to make space.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career?

Facing a team fighting intensely for their own World Cup place, in the stifling 37°C heat of Barranquilla and with stars like Juan Cuadrado, James Rodriguez and Falcao on the pitch, Brazil never looked like losing. Radamel Falcao García Colombia vs Brasil Eliminatoria Rusia 2018With 10 qualifiers under his belt now, Tite has finally tasted disappointment in a competitive game. Nine brilliant victories sent the Selecao steaming into Russia and expelled from memory the dark days of Dunga, but Brazil must also remember that victory is not a foregone conclusion, especially in a World Cup. That reality check, along with a valuable look at players like Roberto Firmino, Fernandinho, Thiago Silva and Filipe Luis, who started on Tuesday but are far from regular first-teamers – Firmino the exception, as it was the unfamiliar position of centre-forward that was new to him – who will make up part of his alternative XI once in Russia, was exactly what Tite wanted, and he will leave Colombia in decent spirirs in spite of the dropped points. Brazil’s preparations for the World Cup have only just begun. Similar squad rotation will surely be witnessed in October, when the Selecao finish up their CONMEBOL campaign against Bolivia and Chile, and now there is only one goal within the ranks: to arrive in Russia in the best possible way, with all 23 players ready and willing to star at the world’s biggest football competition.last_img read more

Gov’t Appoints Boards To Supervise Juvenile Facilities

first_imgStory Highlights The Boards of Visitors will give oversight to the operations of juvenile facilities, with the primary objective of ensuring that the children are protected. The establishment of the Boards of Visitors is a direct response to the Armadale tragedy on March 22, 2009. The Government is continuing on its strategic path to protect and promote the rights and well-being of the nation’s children through the establishment of Boards of Visitors for juvenile facilities.This was stated by Chief Technical Director in the Ministry of National Security, Karen Clarke-Davis, during a meeting for members of the Boards on November 21, at the Jamaica Conference Centre, downtown Kingston.The Boards of Visitors will give oversight to the operations of juvenile facilities, with the primary objective of ensuring that the best interests of the children in correctional and remand centres are protected.They will monitor the operations of the Metcalfe Street Secure Juvenile Centre; Rio Cobre Juvenile Correctional Centre; Hill Top Juvenile Correctional Centre; South Camp Juvenile Correctional and Remand Centre, and ensure that they meet minimum standards.The establishment of the Boards of Visitors is a direct response to the Armadale tragedy on March 22, 2009.Mrs. Clarke Davis said the Ministry remains resolute in safeguarding the wellbeing of all of Jamaica’s children, in particular, the 275 who are currently in the care of the Department of Correctional Services (DCS).“The Ministry accepts the task of protecting the interest and welfare of our juveniles is a mammoth one and believes that the development of our nation requires a multi-faceted and collaborative approach,” she said.She reminded the members of the Boards that they have the opportunity to influence the outcomes of rehabilitation programmes, to shape the reintegration strategy, and to contribute to the wards’ return to society as positive citizens.“We look forward to receiving your recommendations and to a cordial working relationship. The children are our future, let us provide each one with every opportunity to excel and realise their full potential,” she stated.The Chief Technical Director implored them to seek to make a difference and execute their functions with compassion, understanding and love for the children as they aim to protect their best interests.“Discharge your functions without fear or favour but be friendly. Be thorough but thoughtful, be robust but be respectful. We must seek to do all in our powers to ensure that there is never a repeat of an ‘Armadale’,” she said.Each Board, which will meet once per month, is mandated to submit reports to the Children’s Advocate, the Superintendent of the specified institution, the Commissioner of Corrections and the Minister of National Security.

Province Adds New Stroketreatment Drug to Pharmacare

first_imgNova Scotians being treated for abnormal heart rhythm caused by blood flow will have access to a new stroke-prevention drug under the provincial Pharmacare program. The province announced today, May 17, it will provide $2.5 million in funding to add the anti-coagulant Dabigatran to Pharmacare for eligible patients who need an alternative to Warfarin. Starting in June, Dabigatran, best known by the brand name Pradax, will be listed as a benefit to help prevent stroke in non-valvular atrial fibrillation patients who cannot be treated with Warfarin. “We heard from many Nova Scotians who couldn’t take warfarin but could not afford the alternative drug,” said Health and Wellness Minister Maureen MacDonald. “Starting next month, Pradax will be available to these patients to help prevent stroke.” At the usual dose, Pradax is similar to Warfarin in preventing stroke and has a similar safety profile. Unlike Warfarin, Pradax does not need to be monitored as frequently. “Working with the manufacturer and other provinces and territories, Nova Scotia established specific listing criteria that will allow eligible patients to access this medication under Pharmacare,” said Ms. MacDonald. “For many patients, this drug provides an alternative to manage risk of stroke, while minimizing budget impact concerns.” About 8,000 to 10,000 Nova Scotians are taking Warfarin for atrial fibrillation and other conditions. “I’ve been telling my patients about options to Warfarin therapy for some time now,” said Dr. Adam Clarke, a cardiologist with Valley Regional Hospital. “While I appreciate there is a cost associated with adding a new drug to the Pharmacare coverage, I applaud the government for this decision. This addition will make a significant difference for many people who could not previously get the care they needed. “I believe there will be fewer Nova Scotians having strokes this year because of this update.” Funding for Pradax is an example of how the province is taking action to get lower, fair prices for generic drugs and keep the dramatic growth of spending on drugs through Pharmacare in check. This year, government is on track to spend $6 million less on drugs because of its fair drug pricing plan. Nearly 180,000 Nova Scotians benefit from Nova Scotia’s Pharmacare program.

Stimac has brought lots of fresh ideas Soosairaj

first_imgNew Delhi: The Indian men’s football team is currently going through a transition period, with a number of players getting their debuts under new head coach Igor Stimac. One such player is Michael Soosairaj, who has impressed one and all over the course of the last two seasons in the I-League and then the Indian Super League. A call up to the national camp was followed by him getting selected for the final 23 for the King’s Cup 2019 in Thailand. In Thailand, Stimac went on to give as many as six debuts against a tough Curacao team in the tournament opener — Soosairaj was one of them. Also Read – Djokovic heaps praise on ‘very complete’ Medvedev The 24-year-old rated the moment of coming on as a substitute in the second half as his best moment in his playing career so far. “I remember it. The coach pointed at me and asked me to gear-up,” recalled Soosairaj. “I was nervous. But I kept on telling myself, ‘Okay, Soosai! Be cool.

We were provided individual programmes. There wasn’t any room for any compromise. We have to stay fit, if we are to have a chance of making it to the team. And by saying ‘staying fit,’ I mean attaining top international fitness standards,” he continued. “In his style of play, Stimac ensures that the whole team fights together. We defend together, and we attack together.” With the Intercontinental Cup coming up, Soosairaj is hard at work in Mumbai, where the probables for the Indian squad are training ahead of the tournament. “Last year, I watched it on television from my home. But this time it’s different. I am really excited to be a part of the camp ahead of the tournament. I shall most certainly give it my all if I’m picked.”last_img read more

GOP health bill offers provisions aimed at helping 2 states

first_imgWASHINGTON – Provisions shoehorned into the Republican health care bill dangle extra money for Alaska and Wisconsin, home states of one GOP senator whose vote party leaders desperately need and another who co-sponsored the legislation, according to analysts who’ve studied the legislation.The 140-page measure, which top Republicans hope to push through the Senate next week, is stuffed with language making some states winners and others losers. Aides say the legislation is still changing as leaders hunt the 50 GOP “yes” votes they’ll need to turn this summer’s jarring Senate rejection of the party’s crusade to erase President Barack Obama’s law into an eleventh-hour triumph.Alaska is home to GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who’s among a handful of Republicans who’ve not said how they’ll vote. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., is one of the bill’s co-sponsors and his support is not in question, but the episode suggests the value of helping craft of legislation.The bill was chiefly written by GOP Sens. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham. It would end Obama’s Medicaid expansion and subsidies for people buying private insurance and combine the money into new block grants for states.With all Democrats opposed, Republicans controlling the Senate 52-48 can lose only two votes if they are to succeed, leaving the bill’s fate uncertain. Generally, it would shift money from states that expanded their Medicaid programs for the poor under Obama’s statute, which tend to be run by Democrats, to the largely Republican-run states that shunned that expansion.The measure would shield Alaska from some cuts it imposes on Medicaid, according to analysts, including from the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation, by limiting spending to a maximum amount per beneficiary starting in 2020. The federal-state program for low earners has always automatically provided whatever money is needed for eligible recipients. Montana would also qualify for the exemption.It would also increase federal Medicaid funds for states with high American Indian populations, including Alaska, according to health care consultant April Grady.Analysts offered no figures about how much money the provisions would mean for Alaska.The provisions hardly ensure support from Murkowski, who’s said she’s studying how the measure would affect her state. The administration was pushing for her support, with Vice-President Mike Pence calling into an Anchorage talk-radio show Thursday and urging listeners to contact Murkowski and ask her to “stand with President Trump” and support the bill.According to studies released this week by Kaiser and the consulting firm Avalere Health, Alaska is among many states that would lose money overall under the bill. Alaska has unusually high health care costs because of the remoteness of many communities.The provisions do not mention Alaska or Wisconsin by name.But the bill allows a state that turned down extra federal funds to expand Medicaid under Obama’s statute to count the rejected money in determining how large its block grant will be, analysts say.Grady, Avalere analyst Chris Sloan and others said they were unaware of states other than Wisconsin that would benefit from the provision. This language could mean “potentially hundreds of millions” of extra dollars for Wisconsin, said Grady.In a written statement provided by aides, Johnson said funding formulas to correct “the grossly unfair” distribution of money under Obama’s law needed to be changed “to reflect the unique circumstances of many states, including recognizing the innovative reforms of Wisconsin.”Wisconsin is among 19 states that declined to fully expand Medicaid under Obama’s law, which also provided generous federal reimbursements. Under Gov. Scott Walker, a GOP 2016 presidential contender, Wisconsin just partially expanded Medicaid and agreed to accept smaller federal subsidies.The provision in the health care bill applies to states that expanded Medicaid only up to 100 per cent of the federal poverty level and had that expansion in effect this past Sept. 1.Since the bill’s details emerged, health industry and other groups have been lining up against it.The National Association of Medicaid Directors, representing state officials who administer Medicaid, said it is concerned the measure would have damaging consequences on state budgets. Also announcing opposition recently was America’s Health Insurance Plans, a huge health insurers’ trade group, the American Hospital Association and the American Medical Association.___Associated Press writer Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar contributed.last_img read more

Former Nicaraguan foreign minister set to be next General Assembly President

24 March 2008The former Nicaraguan foreign minister Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann is likely to become the next President of the General Assembly after the Latin American and Caribbean countries at the United Nations agreed to endorse his candidature, an Assembly spokesperson said today. Ambassador Aura Mahuampi Rodriguez de Ortiz of Venezuela, who serves as the current chair of the Latin American and Caribbean Group of countries (GRULAC) at the UN, sent a letter last week to the current President, Srgjan Kerim, informing him of the group’s decision, the spokesperson told reporters in New York.Under the Assembly principle of regional rotation, the next GA President – who is scheduled to start serving on 16 September this year – should come from one of the countries in GRULAC.In recent years the election of a General Assembly President has been by acclamation, with the last case of a formal vote occurring at the 46th session (1991-92), when there were three declared candidates. Assembly rules and procedures state that a president must be elected at least three months before the new session, which in the case means before 16 June.Mr. D’Escoto Brockmann, 75, served as foreign minister of Nicaragua from July 1979 to April 1990 and in February last year he was appointed special senior adviser, with the rank of minister, for foreign policies and boundary issues to Nicaragua’s current President Daniel Ortega Saavedra. read more

GuineaBissau gaining ground but still at risk of major setbacks says Annan

“A strong commitment to improve the political climate continued to emerge” during the past three months, Mr. Annan said in his latest report to the Security Council on the work of the UN Peacebuilding Support Office, known as UNOGBIS.He cited progress in the national dialogue process, the efforts of Guinea-Bissau’s two major political parties to heal serious internal divisions and advances in reconciliation efforts within the defence and security forces.But Mr. Annan said the socio-economic situation is dire, with a sharp drop in revenue from the staple cashew nut crop, a poor rice harvest this season and the problem of salary arrears in the public sector combining to exacerbate social tensions.Stressing that the international community must continue to support Guinea-Bissau’s efforts to achieve political stability, the Secretary-General said he planned to revise UNOGBIS’ mandate slightly and extend its operation until the end of next year.UNOGBIS was created in 1999 to help Guinea-Bissau, one of the poorest nations in the world, emerge from the devastation of a civil war in which thousands were killed, wounded or forced from their homes.In his report Mr. Annan also called on the international community to give generously during a donors’ round table for Guinea-Bissau in Geneva in early November. read more

BC fishing industry upset over pending announcement of marine protection area

VANCOUVER – The federal government’s decision to ban all fishing in some marine protected areas off Canada’s west coast threatens the livelihoods of hundreds of Canadians and ignores years of discussions with the fishing industry, says the country’s largest commercial fishermen’s association.Jim McIsaac, the Pacific vice-president of the Canadian Independent Fish Harvesters’ Federation, said that an anticipated marine-conservation announcement by the Fisheries Department will hurt jobs and raise seafood prices.“We’ve been sold down the road,” McIsaac said on Wednesday, calling the move both extreme and unnecessary.“We’re more than disappointed,” he added. “These are people’s lives. These are people’s livelihoods.”The federal government is expected to announce on Thursday a 2,000-square-kilometre marine conservation area comprising three sites between Vancouver Island and the archipelago of Haida Gwaii aimed at protecting the region’s sensitive glass-sponge reefs.The B.C. coast is believed to be one of the last remaining homes for glass-sponge reefs, described by the environmental organization Living Oceans as fragile relics of prehistoric times that were thought to have gone extinct before their rediscovery in the late 1980s.Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc said in Vancouver on Wednesday that the government does not believe imposing fishing restrictions to protect the marine ecosystem is an either/or proposition, adding that it is possible to do so while balancing the interests of industry.“People should be careful before they pull the fire alarm and tell Canadians that, as the government meets the commitments that we made to Canadians, it will necessarily have these devastating economic impacts,” LeBlanc said.“Obviously, that’s not a view we have and we’ll continue to work with the industry to make sure that’s the case.”LeBlanc made the comments after announcing the government’s official endorsement of a marine conservation agreement between federal, provincial and First Nations governments for Canada’s Pacific coast.The government is committed to meeting its target of protecting five per cent of Canada’s marine ecosystem by the end of the year, and 10 per cent by 2020, he added.Only about 1.3 per cent of Canada’s ocean territory was protected when the federal Liberals were elected in late 2015.McIsaac said the government’s conservation announcement will have a “cascading effect” that could hurt workers, including those who crew the more than 50 boats that fish in the area and those involved in processing the catch.The federation had proposed a plan to protect about 1,000 square kilometres of seabed but still allow fishing in the surrounding areas and in the water above the glass-sponge reefs, he said.“From the fishing community’s point of view, fishermen have been working on protecting sponge reefs for considerably longer than the seven years in the marine-protected-area process, McIsaac said.Fishermen brought in a voluntary closure around the reefs in 2000 and endorsed an official closure under the Fisheries Act in 2002, he added.“We’re trying to protect the environment and our jobs, and that doesn’t seem to be on the agenda,” McIsaac said.The federation represents 8,000 fishing industry workers across Canada.— Follow @gwomand on Twitter B.C. fishing industry upset over pending announcement of marine protection area by Geordon Omand, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 15, 2017 1:17 pm MDT Last Updated Feb 15, 2017 at 6:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, Dominic LeBlanc, right, looks at a boom used to contain oil spills while being given a tour of environmental response equipment by Michael Martens, left, Canadian Coast Guard Acting Senior Environmental Response Officer, after an announcement at the Sea Island Canadian Coast Guard Base, in Richmond, B.C., on Wednesday February 15, 2017.

Womens basketball Former Duke transfer Sierra Calhoun finding her niche at Ohio

Ohio State redshirt junior guard Sierra Calhoun takes a shot during the Buckeyes’ game against Washington on Nov. 19. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorMoving from one place to another can be a difficult process.In redshirt junior guard Sierra Calhoun’s case, however, it was not.  When Calhoun decided to transfer from Duke to Ohio State in 2015, she felt she had an idea of what awaited.Having already known some of the players and coaches at Ohio State, it only made the move that much easier. “I really liked the culture at OSU,” Calhoun said. “I knew a couple of players prior to transferring here, so it didn’t take long to gel with them. I also knew a couple of the coaches here prior to my visit. I thought it was a good fit in terms of coaching staff, personnel, atmosphere, stuff like that.”A product of Christ the King High School located in Queens, New York, Calhoun was the top prospect in the state and committed to Duke in 2013. As a freshman, she posted 10.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. Despite starting the first 13 games for the Blue Devils, Calhoun abruptly left the program midseason, deciding Ohio State would be the best place for her. “It was a lot of things, but it just didn’t work out,” Calhoun said. “It wasn’t a bad transition at all. It was actually pretty easy. The universities are very different. Obviously, coming from a small university to a bigger university is a change. I’m from New York, so moving to a bigger university wasn’t really that hard of a transition.”After sitting out the 2015 season due to transfer rules, the former Blue Devil emerged as one of Ohio State’s best players during her first season in Columbus. She started every contest during the 2016-17 season for Ohio State, averaging 9.5 points per game as the Buckeyes’ resident sharpshooter. Calhoun averaged a team-best 38.6 percent shooting from beyond the arc and made the second-most 3-pointers (68). Watching the previous season unfold beforehand wasn’t easy for Calhoun, but it not only provided invaluable experience, it helped her see the game from a different perspective. “Last year, sitting out a while was hard, but I also got to look at the game from a different perspective,” Calhoun said. “I feel like that helped me last year in terms of looking at things from a different angle and seeing what other people are doing well, so I can help my teammates out more. This year, I definitely have more experience under my belt. We’re gelling more.”The 2017-18 campaign began inconsistently for Calhoun in her second season on the court as a Buckeye. She hit worse than 27 percent of her shots in four of the first five games of the season. But as the season has progressed, so has her shooting stroke. Calhoun has hit 12-of-27 triples in her last four games.Through 10 total games this season, Calhoun is averaging 10.8 points — on 37-of-111 shots from the field for a 33.3 percent field goal percentage — and three rebounds, while shooting 29 percent from 3-point range (18-for-62). At this point in her Buckeye career, Calhoun is more than proving her worth to the 12th-ranked team in college basketball.In a starting lineup featuring seniors at every position except her own, Calhoun has managed to carve out her own niche as a leader, which can only help Ohio State in Calhoun’s eyes. “I definitely want to show that I have more experience,” Calhoun said. “I don’t want to make any sophomore or rookie mistakes. I just want to be a leader out there. We have a lot of leaders on our team. I think it’d be a great to have a lot of coaches on the floor. It’ll help us have a great season.” read more

Second election likely in Italy as Bersani fails to seal grip on

first_imgITALIANS ARE LIKELY to have to go to the polls again in the coming weeks to hold a second general election, after votes cast in this week’s ballots failed to conclusively appoint a new government.The centre-left coalition led by Pier Luigi Bersani topped the polls for both the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate, but the strength of Silvio Berlusconi’s centre-right movement in key regions has put a roadblock on Bersani’s path to power.Italian law means that the coalition that tops the nationwide poll for the Chamber of Deputies is guaranteed a majority in that house, ensuring that Bersani has a comfortable majority there – even though he scored barely 1 per cent more of the vote than Berlusconi.In the Senate, however, coalitions are given bonus seats depending on the results of regional ballots – meaning that Berlusconi’s victories in key provinces like Sicily and Lombardy, which includes his home city of Milan, meant his coalition is the largest in terms of Senate seats.A further complicating factor is the phenomenal performance of the ‘Five Star Movement’, an apolitical anti-establishment movement led by former TV comedian Beppe Grillo, which is the single largest party in the Chamber and took over a sixth of the Senate.Bersani-Monti alliance falls shortBersani had hoped that he could form a power-sharing administration with the supporters of the outgoing technocratic premier Mario Monti, who registered a new political party to fight the election – but his support failed to materialise, with voters shunning him for introducing unpopular austerity measures.Monti’s movement won just over 10 per cent of votes for the Chamber, and 9 per cent for the Senate – with the later meaning that the Bersani-Monti coalition would have only 125 seats in the Senate, still way short of the 158 needed for a majority.If Grillo’s movement was to ally with Berlusconi, the pair would have 171 Senate seats – easily enough for a majority in the Senate – but would still face Bersani’s legally-guaranteed massive majority in the Chamber.The only prospect that would avert the need for another election is if Grillo and his supporters decided to back a Bersani-Monti partnership – though this could prove difficult to stomach for Italians who voted for the Five Star Alliance simply as a protest vote against the established parties.Nonetheless, Italian state news agency Ansa quoted a spokesman for the Alliance who said the new party would “gather, listen to the network and decide what to do”.The Five Star Alliance chose its parliamentary candidates based on an online primary, and campaigns on a platform that free internet access should be considered a human right – suggesting that the party could canvas its supporters to decide how to respond.Berlusconi, for his part, told Italy’s Channel 5 he did not believe it was “useful” to consider holding a second election.Further complicationsThe elections are further complicated by the forthcoming retirement of the Italian president, Georgio Napolitano, whose seven-year term lapses in May.The Italian presidency is elected by the parliament, but only the President has the power to dissolve the parliament – meaning the new dysfunctional parliament may have to convene and elect a new president whose first task could be to call another election.In the meantime, Mario Monti’s outgoing government remains in place in a caretaker capacity – but its power to legislate is nullified by the absence of parliamentary support, while any sense of a public mandate has been lost by the poor showing of support for Monti in the election.Investors have already acted with unease to the result of the election: the interest rate on a 10-year loan for the Italian government by 0.25 per cent yesterday.Italy would now have to pay 4.85 per cent annual interest on a 10-year loan – up from 4.07 per cent only a month ago.Explainer: Everything you need to know about the Italian electionlast_img read more

This nanny died before her incredible secret photographic talent was revealed

first_img“Well, I suppose nothing is meant to last forever. We have to make room for other people. It’s a wheel. You get on, you have to go to the end. And then somebody has the same opportunity to go to the end and so on.” – Vivian MaierWHO WAS VIVIAN Maier?She was a nanny. She was unmarried. She often wore anachronistic clothing and was both remarkable and unremarkable.She was born in the USA. Or was it France? She had a French accent. She had a fake accent.She loved children. She had no children. She disliked some children.She was 7ft tall. She was 5ft 9.She was paradoxical and interesting, she was a woman who people knew but who nobody knew.She was one of the 20th century’s greatest street photographers.Just who was Vivian Maier? This photograph taken Thursday, Jan. 6, 2011 at an exhibit of Vivian Maier’s photography at the Chicago Cultural Center, shows a 1984 letter sent to Maier soliciting her services as a nanny in Chicago Source: AP/Press Association ImagesIf the lines above seem like a bundle of contradictions, then a new film about Maier’s life might provide you some answers, but even more questions.Finding Vivian Maier is co-directed by Charlie Siskel and John Maloof. The latter is the young Chicagoan who bought a box of negatives at an auction in 2007 while searching for images for a local history book.Initially, Maloof put them aside, but after scanning some of the negatives, he realised he had some incredible special photographs in his possession.In 2009, the same year Maier died, Maloof posted this link on Flickr, asking what he should do with the images he now owned:The reaction was incredible – it was clear he now owned photos that were not of the usual amateur photographer standard. Source: AP/Press Association ImagesHungry for more of Maier’s work, he sought and bought more of her possessions, finding himself the owner of thousands of negatives, and undeveloped rolls of film, as well as numerous books, rumpled hats and shirts, personal tchotchkes, piles of newspapers and letters.In essence, Maloof became the new owner of Maier’s life, and after he discovered she had recently passed away, he could not abandon this new responsibility.In Finding Vivian Maier, we see how this intriguing woman documented her life, venturing into dangerous or poor parts of town, often bringing her reluctant child charges with her.We also realise that Vivian Maier left various and differing impressions on the lives of the people she met. Source: AP/Press Association ImagesPiecing together Maier’s story has become Maloof’s life, and he treats this task as sensitively as he can in the film, even when the subject turns quite dark.Maier appears to have been a forthright, passionate but slightly reclusive woman, who was sensitive to injustice and uncompromising about the way she lived her life.The question ‘what was a nanny doing taking photographs?’ – as Maloof asks at the beginning of the film – underlines not only that she stepped out of prescribed gender and societal roles from the 1950s, but that these assumptions still linger on.Maloof is frustrated at what he sees as a refusal of the art world to accept Maier’s posthumously developed work, but at the same time he has been able to exhibit her photos in the United States and Europe.Whether Vivian Maier is ever considered a ‘great’ by those in the higher echelons of the Art world makes no odds when you witness the responses to her work.Technically brilliant, exquisitely framed, whether they were snapshots of downtrodden lives or experimental self-portraits, Maier’s photographs show that she had that rare combination that makes a great photographer.Just as the chemical mix needed in the darkoom has to be 100% correct to develop an image, Maier had a combination of talents that allowed her take such stunning shots.She had the eye, the nose for a good shot and sense of mystery, an empathy for the vulnerable, and a talent for working with light and shadow. In this photo taken Thursday, Jan. 6, 2011, John Maloof looks at Vivian Maier’s negatives on a light table at his home in Chicago. Source: AP/Press Association ImagesBut, like us all, she wasn’t perfect. This, the documentary makes clear.Some might call it a ‘failing’ that she never appeared to try and bring her work to a wider audience, but only she knows the reason behind that.The rest of us can feel grateful for whatever twist of fate led her to layer and pile her life into the boxes that ended up in the hands of the capable John Maloof.

Marshadow Is The Newest Mythical Pokemon Being Added InGame

first_imgStay on target If you foolishly thought you knew everything there is to know about Pokemon, you’re going to want to think again. There’s a new mythical Pokemon in town, and its name is Marshadow. The new Pokemon has had the rumor mill up in arms over the last few months. But it’s finally official, and we can finally welcome Marshadow to the world, with a brand new trailer that not only shows Marshadow off but gives you a glimpse at what might be coming in the future for this rare Pokemon.Marshadow won’t be just another average Pokemon, however. The Pokemon Company has already made it very clear that you won’t be able to capture it during normal gameplay. But there aren’t any details just yet on how, exactly, you will be able to add it to your collection. What we do know about Marshadow is that it’s going to be a dual-type fighting and ghost Pokemon that won’t evolve into another Pokemon or evolve from another Pokemon, though it kindles images of Litwick and similar creatures.It does have a special Z-Move, which is the Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike, which, according to Bulbapedia “punches and kicks the target consecutively with full force.” Perhaps we’ll see some of that Z-Move on display in the upcoming Pokemon movie that’s scheduled for a July release in Japan, called Pokemon: I Choose You!, as yet unconfirmed for a Western release.Marshadow is an interesting new addition to the Pokemon family, and it’ll be interesting to see what happens when it’s finally available for us to check out. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer below for a glimpse at what we might be able to expect from this dark and diminutive Pokemon.

Serious crashes on rise in Vancouver

first_imgAfter decades of downward progress, the number of fatal and serious injury crashes nationally and statewide are trending upward. The same largely holds true in Vancouver.City officials discussed some of the key findings of a Transportation System Safety Analysis by the city of Vancouver during a presentation to the Vancouver City Council during a workshop Monday.Above all: Vancouver drivers are driving too fast, getting distracted and having trouble safely navigating their way through large intersections; the city’s pedestrians are especially at risk; and there are solutions that can be applied to specific intersections and across the city’s roadways that could improve safety conditions.The city built the report by examining the years 2010 to 2016 with crash data from the Washington State Department of Transportation to build its analysis. They also used crash trend data to compare Vancouver’s crash factors to those included in the state’s strategic highway safety plan, Target Zero. The city then took the data a step further and looked deeper into the data and analyzed crashes at specific intersections and road segments.By the city’s data, the number of crashes has been trending upward since 2013. The number peaked in 2015 with just under 1,600 crashes in the city. In 2016, the figure was somewhat lower, at just over 1,400. No one was injured in those crashes 56 percent of the time.last_img read more

18th District lawmakers host town hall marathon

first_imgIn order to address citizens across the 18th Legislative District before the new session starts Jan. 14, Sen. Ann Rivers, R-La Center, Rep. Brandon Vick, R-Felida, and Rep.-elect Larry Hoff hosted a marathon town hall session on Saturday starting at 9 a.m. in Ridgefield and ending at 4:30 p.m. in Salmon Creek.The schedule was so jam packed Hoff even got a speeding ticket trying to get between Ridgefield and Battle Ground in a timely fashion.Room after room was packed full and the public came armed with insightful questions about everything from opioids and climate change to mental health, education funding and as many might predict, what’s going on with the Interstate 5 Bridge.Vick said Ridgefield and Camas both focused more on environmental issues, Battle Ground dove into property rights and the railroad and Salmon Creek asked about anything and everything. The Salmon Creek town hall was a first for the 18th Legislative District; usually the stops include just Ridgefield, Battle Ground and Camas. But as Vick noted, Salmon Creek had the best attendance and nearly everyone who stopped by asked it to become a regular occurrence.Rivers said as she marked off her 60th town hall Saturday, she’s looking forward to adding more events to the schedule.“My district is changing, the demographic, the issues that my district cares about is changing significantly,” she said. “I just want to know where my district is at with respect to the myriad of issues so that … I can hear things, I can sort of pluck out and see if I can come up with elegant solutions or compromises.”last_img read more

Undiagnosed thyroid increases infertility risk

first_imgOver 20 per cent women in India live with an undiagnosed thyroid problem and do not even realise that it is the cause of various health issues including infertility, health experts have said. Thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland in the neck that produces thyroid hormones that help regulate the human body’s energy use. Sometimes the thyroid makes too much or too little of these hormones. When thyroid hormone production drops (hypothyroidism), the body’s processes slow down and change. On the other hand, overactive levels of the hormone (hyperthyroidism) can speed up the body’s functions. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfHypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid could make women unable to conceive. Low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with ovulation, which impairs fertility, the experts said. “Thyroid is a very common problem especially post 25 years of age and women are four times more prone to thyroid disorders than men,” experts said. “Undiagnosed and untreated thyroid disease can be a cause for infertility or frequent miscarriage.” Infertility symptoms can include disturbed menstrual cycle, heavy and less frequent periods, low basal body temperature and difficulty in conceiving. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveLow thyroid levels, which make the ovaries less able to produce progesterone, also lead to symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), affecting about 70 per cent of women. An undiagnosed thyroid problem could also be the cause of other health issues including symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, constipation, muscle and joint aches, sluggishness, intolerance towards cold weather, abnormal and irregular periods and sleeplessness, among others. “Infertility is a major health threat due to thyroid and many other conditions that are often the direct result of undiagnosed and untreated thyroid conditions,” explained experts. “In order to lead a healthy life I would recommend that all patients who recognize any of these symptoms should go for a TSH test,” experts noted. Hyperthyroidism can be treated in many ways such as TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test, chest X-ray, T4 or thyroxin test. However, a doctor chooses the line of treatment on the basis of a number of variables like the underlying cause of hyperthyroidism, the age of the patient, the size of the thyroid gland and the presence of coexisting medical illnesses. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including getting proper diagnosis, weight loss, ample sleep, de-stressing, regular exercise, not ignoring early symptoms and an adequate diet are essential.last_img read more
