Science Group’s share price hits record highs after trading update Market appetite for UK shares remains quite sickly, as worries over rising inflation dominate investor thinking. Both the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 are in the red in Wednesday trading, though not all British stocks are struggling for grip. The Science Group (LSE: SAG) share price, for instance, has soared following the release of fresh financials.Prices of the consultancy group soared to fresh record peaks of 399p per share earlier in mid-week trading. They’ve settled lower but, at 390p, the Science Group share price remains 11% higher from Tuesday’s close.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Strong trading across Science GroupIn today’s update, Science Group, which describes itself as “an international consulting services group supporting the entire product innovation lifecycle,” said all three of its divisions have enjoyed “a good start to the year.”At its Services businesses, Science Group said its R&D Consultancy division — a unit responsible for around 44% of group revenues — “has seen particularly strong momentum in the Medical sector.” Growth here was strong in 2020, thanks to its participation in the UK government’s ventilator acquisition drive.Elsewhere, Science Group said “the Regulatory & Compliance division has continued the progress demonstrated in 2020.” Finally, it added that its Frontier product division “continues to perform well with material supply constraints likely to be the biggest risk in the current year.”On the back of this strong start, Science Group said it believes adjusted operating profit will grow 30% year-on-year in the first half of 2021. The company described it as “a particularly notable performance,” given the record profits it generated between January and June last year and the significant currency exchange headwinds it faces this time around.Asset sale ruled outScience Group also noted: “While it is still early in the year and the board is closely monitoring the impact of a strengthening sterling currency, this excellent start to 2021 provides a platform for the year as a whole and empowers the group management teams to continue to invest in future growth opportunities with confidence.”Additionally, Science Group said it has decided to retain its Frontier division after floating the idea of a sale earlier in the year. The company said ongoing review of the unit “not only confirmed the strategic position of Frontier but also identified a number of opportunities to further enhance and develop the business which are currently being evaluated.”Gross cash at Science Group stood at £29.5m as of 30 April, the firm said, while net funds clocked in at £13.3m. The company said added: “[Our] strong balance sheet and free cash flow generation enable [us] to continue to evaluate corporate opportunities to increase the scale and/or development of the Group in parallel with the organic investment activities.”City analysts think annual earnings at Science Group will rise 2% in 2021. This leaves the company trading on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 19.7 times. Enter Your Email Address Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

RBS 6 Nations: Round Four Talking Points

first_img He’s back! Freddie Michalak was dropped to the bench following the Wales defeat but starts against Ireland in DublinBy Alan DymockTHERE IS a lot of love in the air. Not the kind of sickly sweet love, where champagne with strawberries is a must and a handmade card has to be presented on top of the Eiffel or Blackpool Tower while Frankie Goes to Hollywood blares out from a boombox circa ’92. Just lovely love for all things nice.So celebrate all the international days and holidays this weekend by rounding up all of your chums, taking them down the boozer and indulging their love of Six Nations rugby. Here’s a look ahead at round four…Return of the ‘lakNo sooner had everyone gruffly agreed that France were better without Freddie Michalak than Philippe Saint-Andre reinstated the mercurial half-back for the game against Ireland.Inside him there is a steadying force, with Morgan Parra winning his 50th cap while having to hold the France fly-half’s hand. Their task will be to try to work around the Irish playmakers and hope that any trouble that befalls Michalak cannot be punished by a fit-enough Paddy Jackson.The match-up between Michalak and Jackson will be interesting, and while the Irishman certainly seems to have the full support of his team, it only takes one bit of Michalak magic for us all to remember how good a player he can be when he is not dabbing kicks into gleeful defender’s chops.In the perfect world the fancy flyers on either side perform, the packs put in brave displays and Jackson comes of age while Michalak actually pulls off something he has been trying since the opening whistle of the championship.In the real world, though, it will be the team that is less wasteful that will renege on their recent form. Italy need to play a tad more negatively than they have in previous rounds. Their offloading has been superb, but they need to box-kick and pick-and-go to sap the English before looking to play with Jacques Brunel’s style. It may even help playing negatively at the start before picking up the pace on either side of half-time and then becoming negative again. If it is non-stop action and offloads for 80 minutes they will burn out against an England side conditioned to last.For the hosts, they will be convinced that if they can keep swinging low, but at greater pace, they are assured of a victory. NOT FOR FEATURED LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Marksman: Wales’ Leigh HalfpennyContenders’ contestAt Murrayfield there is a meeting of two teams still in the hunt for a title. Whether or not Scotland are likely to claim their first ever Six Nations title or Wales retain the trophy is irrelevant. This is a spectacle for spectacle’s sake. Both teams are on a high and both want to ruck it out.The back threes on either side of the ball are exciting and this game represents a chance for the tournament to flourish once again, with tries and turnovers, runs and rearguard action capturing the imagination.If both throw the kitchen sink and the toilet, too, this has the potential to be the game of the tournament (unless Wales win. Then, of course, Wales versus England at the Millennium Stadium will undoubtedly be the game of the tournament…).Captain marvel: Sergio ParisseSlam-pedeThe Italians will be hoping that the reinstatement of Sergio Parisse can help them bounce back. However, England are on an upwards curve and by swapping in dynamic ball-carriers in Mako Vunipola, James Haskell and Danny Care, they are clearly planning an unrelenting punch to the guts of Italy.Italy may not double over, but England are marching towards a Grand Slam and they are trying to pick up the pace.last_img read more

As of this writing, eight people are known dead and others injured.The newscasts, sickeningly, are referring again and again to this horror as a “tragedy.” It is no such thing. A tragedy is inevitable. This was not. It was murder, murder of a particularly vile and poisonous kind. Human beings have moral agency. Someone chose to hate, and chose to kill. And now we are faced with a choice as well— to do nothing, or to reject this hatred in the strongest possible words and actions, and to refute in every way, in every forum, the philosophical foundations of anti-Semitism wherever they have gained a foothold in our churches and our society.We are waiting upon the leadership of the Jewish community of Pittsburgh as they consider an appropriate common response in which we also may join to express our grief and support. In the meantime, I ask all the congregations of this diocese to keep the people of Tree of Life, and their leadership, in our prayers, mentioning them particularly, during the prayers of the people in tomorrow’s liturgies, and including a time of silence in commemoration of their dead under the biddings for the departed.This terror is added to the great heap of such crimes we have witnessed in the past. Yet our hope is not dimmed, and our obligation is clear: “Behold, I set before you this day, life and death, blessing and curse: therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19) May we especially who bear the name of Christ be fierce in our love and unwavering in our courage, as we mourn with those who mourn, and work with others to lay the foundations for blessing, life and peace for all people.Faithfully your bishop,The Right Reverend) Dorsey W.

IoF and PFRA due to merge at end of July

first_img“The PFRA has achieved a huge amount since it was formed and was rightly credited during last year’s inquiries as being at the forefront of improving fundraising standards. That’s why we at the IoF are so excited to be moving towards a merger and are confident that this will ensure we have a single membership body driving best practice and speaking with one voice”.Paul Stallard, Chair of the PFRA added:“Our Board have rightly recognised the huge opportunities this merger presents to expand our compliance work into new forms of fundraising. We have worked hard over the last decade to strengthen street and door-to-door fundraising and we are now going one step further. The events of last year showed there can be no gaps in self-regulation if we are to preserve public trust, so I strongly believe this merger will provide an excellent platform to help our members deliver even higher standards of fundraising.” IoF and PFRA due to merge at end of July  159 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 The boards of the Institute of Fundraising and Public Fundraising Association (PFRA) have unanimously agreed the merger of the organisations to produce a single membership body for fundraisers in the UK, and one which offers a new range of compliance services for the membership.A final decision to ratify the merger agreement will take place at the PFRA’s AGM on 15th June, with the merger due to be completed by 31 July.The merger was proposed last year as part of the Etherington review into the self-regulation of fundraising, following criticism by some media of some fundraising practices.The Boards took their decisions “in the best interests of the fundraising community”.The reserves and assets of the PFRA will be transferred to the merged organisation. These will be ring-fenced under a three year agreement ending in July 2019, and used by the Institute for the purposes of supporting and furthering compliance in public fundraising.Compliance serviceThe current Chief Executive of the PFRA, Peter Hills-Jones, will take up a new position as Director of Fundraising Compliance at the Institute of Fundraising. Staff currently employed by the PFRA will become the Fundraising Compliance Directorate. There will be “no redundancies” as part of the merger according to the Institute.The PFRA has already established a mystery shopping programme for private site fundraising which involves a six month pilot programme launching on 1 April. It will gather information on current standards.New sub-committeesFollowing the merger, the Institute will create three new sub-committees of the main Board of Trustees – Door-to-Door Fundraising; Street and Private Site Fundraising; and Telephone Compliance.  Existing PFRA Directors will sit on the committee most closely related to their role and expertise. The committee chairs will be selected by the IoF and the PFRA.A full consultation will be launched next month, with a series of ‘Question and Answer’ sessions scheduled to allow PFRA members to discuss the proposal with Trustees of the IoF and Directors of the PFRA.Richard Taylor, Chair of the Institute of Fundraising said: Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for June 4, 2019

first_img Facebook Twitter The forecast is unchanged this morning for the immediate short term – today and tomorrow. The rest of the forecast is similar, but we are making a few tweaks that may benefit some, but not others. Here is our look at it this morning.Today will be sunny and dry again over the entire state. We likely see some clouds building this afternoon as moisture draws close across Illinois. However, it should be another good drying day in many areas.Scattered showers start to develop overnight and then continue through the day tomorrow. We can’t rule out a few thunderstorms too, although those will not hit all areas of the state. Because of the thunderstorm threat, we have a wide range for precipitation tomorrow, from .2”-1.2” and coverage will end up being around 80% of the state.  The heaviest rains or thunderstorm chances may set up in the afternoon running from areas around Fort Wayne all the way back into far SW Indiana. However, we don’t want to get too cute with that limitation. Most of us will be keeping fingers crossed to miss the bigger stuff…but someone somewhere is going to get it.Thursday, we start to see some separation in regions for the weather pattern. While we continue to see the frontal boundary from Wednesday over the Ohio Valley, we start to see some tropical moisture surging northward out of the gulf, and that will start to tie in with the old boundary. So, For Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we see our best chances of rain stay over the southern half of the state, and we can see dry weather up north. On Thursday, we look for a mix of clouds and sun from I-70 northward, and we can see scattered showers from I-70 southward. Those bring a few hundredths to .25” to the southern half of the state with 60% coverage. Similarly, Friday has partly to mostly sunny sky potential for the northern half of the state, while we see a lot of clouds and limited south down south, with the chance of showers bringing up to .25” over 70% of areas south of I-70. For Saturday, we see sun giving way to increasing clouds in the north, but clouds basically from the get-go in the south. Showers overspread the state from south to north, and by sunset we see showers from US 24 southward, bringing a few hundredths to .4” and 80% coverage. Sunday will feature scattered showers statewide, with the chance for an additional .1”-.4” and 80% coverage. The map shows rain totals through Sunday evening, which will encompass tomorrow’s rain, and then the weekend event too (along with the southern Indiana action the rest of this week.)Next week looks mostly dry. We see partly to mostly sunny skies Monday through Thursday. On Friday we see sunshine over most of the state too but have to look out for a few scattered showers from US 50 south. That means most of the state sees 5 straight days of dry weather potential next week.We finish out the extended period with a little more activity. Showers and thunderstorms are around for Saturday the 15th bringing .1”-.6” and 70% coverage. Then on Sunday we see a mix of clouds and sun up north, but a chance of late afternoon and evening showers south of I-70. Those showers can bring up to half an inch, but only 50% coverage. Monday the 17th shows potential for showers producing .05”-.45” rain and 60% coverage, then we go dry and partly sunny for Tuesday the 18th. Showers and thunderstorms are back for Wednesday the 19th over the northern half of the state, and could bring some bigger totals, from .25”-1.5” and 80% coverage.So, generally speaking, the north is looking a lot better in this forecast, if we truly do see this pattern evolve this way. The moisture staying south does not help everyone, but if we can see 3 days of drying up north and scoot by with rains in the lower end of the range tomorrow, that will allow for some additional fieldwork in northern locations later this week, in our opinion. Then after the weekend, we see an excellent chance of fieldwork next…but how much really will come down to what the weekend rains do in the north, and what the rains for the last have of the week and weekend down south (combined). Still, bigger holes opening up like this is a step in the right direction.

In 2004, the tourism department unveiled its statewide promotion, “The Year of the Garden.”“The idea behind the promotion was that you could go to Callaway Gardens in Georgia but why not go to the beautiful Bellingrath Gardens or Jasmine Hills Gardens right here at home,” Stamps said.“The Year of the Garden” was an incentive for people to see Alabama first and the “Year of … ” became an annual promotion.“We’ve had the ‘Year of’ the Great Outdoors, Alabama Art, Alabama Sports, History, Small Towns/Downtowns among others but the Year of Food in 2005 really took off so we had it back in 2012,” Stamps said. “The brochure, ‘100 dishes to eat in Alabama before you die’ received a huge response and is still very popular. People continue to use it as a guide to great places to eat when they travel around the state.”Locally, Mossy Grove, Sisters and Crowe’s in Troy are included in the brochure.Stamps, laughingly, said, in writing about “100 dishes” a reporter for the Atlanta Constitution quipped that he didn’t know there were 100 ways to cook road kill.“We took that as an insult and invited him try our 100 dishes,” she said.The reporter agreed and ate his way from North Alabama to the Gulf Coast.“He said people of Alabama couldn’t count either because there were at least 200 Alabama dishes to die for,” Stamps said.Alabama’s next promotion will be the “Year of Barbecue” and it should be extremely popular, too, Stamps said.Troy Tourism Director Shelia Jackson told the all-female audience that Troy and Pike County should also be considered as stay-cation destinations for travelers around the state.“And, we also should look in our own backyard for entertainment,” she said. “We have a variety of entertainment events offered by the Troy Arts Council, the Johnson Center for the Arts, the Pioneer Museum of Alabama, the Troy Recreation Department and Troy University and the We Piddle Around Theater and Studio 116 in Brundidge,” she said. “There’s no place like home and Troy and Pike County are great places to call home … and for stay-cations.”Female Factor is sponsored monthly by Troy Regional Medical Center.

She now takes advantage of every opportunity to share her stories about “Sweet Home, Alabama” and to encourage residents to take “stay-cations” and see what all Alabama has to offer.“When the Alabama Department of Tourism wrote its bylaws, it mandated that the department could not advertise within the state,” Stamps said. “That makes it rather difficult to let residents know what we have right here in our own backyard.“With the downturn in the economy, fewer of our residents were traveling outside the state so it became even more important to let Alabama residents know what all Alabama has to offer.”The Tourism Department found a way to highlight Alabama through its “Year of …” promotions. The packed audience applauded it.“Sweet home, Alabama” was the main topic at the Female Factor Wednesday at The Studio in downtown Troy.Stamps, a semi-retired publications manager for the Alabama Department of Tourism and 2012 Employee of the Year, was the guest speaker. And, Stamps did what she does best, cheer for the home state.last_img read more

“Breaking” news: Bryan Cranston lists eco-friendly SoCal beach pad

first_img Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags Bryan Cranston and his California beach house (Getty, Realtor)Actor Bryan Cranston has listed the eco-friendly Ventura County, California home he built during the final season of “Breaking Bad.”Cranston and his wife Robin Dearden bought the property the home sits on in 2007 for around $2.5 million, and completed the 2,450-square-foot house in 2013. It’s listed for just under $5 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.The actor — who told the publication that he’s an architecture “nerd” — helped design the three-bedroom home, and brought in a team of designers to make it as eco-friendly as possible. The listing for the property calls it “a true net-zero build” that produces as much electricity as it consumes.Cranston told the Journal he’s selling because he doesn’t spend much time there, but initially resisted the idea of parting ways with it because of how much work was involved. He’s since had a change of heart.“There’s something lovely about creating something of tremendous pride and effort and turning it over to someone,” he told the publication.Beach houses in Southern California have sold well amid the pandemic, particularly in nearby Malibu. Tyra Banks recently bought a home overlooking the Pacific Ocean near Cranston’s target price range.Some homes have traded for eight figures: Investment banker Ken Moelis bought his neighbor’s beach house for $21.5 million earlier in February, while cosmetics mogul Chris Tawil flipped a beach house for $24 million at the end of January.

Hornbeck Offshore enters into restructuring support agreement

first_imgThe Restructuring Support Agreement contemplates a $75m debtor-in-possession term loan facility provided by existing creditors Hornbeck enters into restructuring support agreement for comprehensive balance sheet restructuring. (Credit: C Morrison from Pixabay) Hornbeck Offshore Services announced that the Company and certain of its subsidiaries have entered into a restructuring support agreement (the “Restructuring Support Agreement”) with secured lenders holding approximately 83% of the Company’s aggregate secured indebtedness and unsecured noteholders holding approximately 79% of the Company’s aggregate unsecured notes outstanding related to a balance sheet restructuring of the Company expected to be implemented through a voluntary pre-packaged Chapter 11 case in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas in the coming weeks with a targeted completion date prior to the end of the second quarter of 2020.The Restructuring Support Agreement contemplates a $75 million debtor-in-possession term loan facility provided by existing creditors and permitted use of existing cash on hand and cash generated from operations to support the business during the financial restructuring process, which will enable the Company to operate in the ordinary course of business without disruption to its customers, vendors and workforce.  The Restructuring Support Agreement provides for payment in full of all vendors and employees.In addition, pursuant to the reorganization contemplated by the Restructuring Support Agreement, the Company will achieve long term enterprise benefits including (i) a significant de-levering of its capital structure; (ii) post-emergence access to $100 million of new equity capital through a common stock rights offering, fully-backstopped by existing creditors and (iii) the ability to arrange additional post-emergence financings for certain purposes, including strategic initiatives.The parties to the Restructuring Support Agreement agreed to other customary terms and conditions including certain transfer restrictions, releases of all claims and interests that are treated in the plan of reorganization, and termination rights upon the occurrence of certain events, including the failure of the Company to achieve certain milestones, which milestones may be extended with the consent of the holders of a requisite amount of secured and unsecured indebtedness and the Company.The Company expects the pre-packaged Chapter 11 reorganization to be completed very quickly with the support of its creditors.  Both prior to and subsequent to the expected Chapter 11 filing, the Company will have sufficient liquidity to continue operations, meet all operational payment obligations and support its business, and will continue to operate in the ordinary course of business without disruption to its customers, vendors and workforce. The Company remains focused on executing on its strategic priorities and is committed to maintaining safe, efficient and responsive operations during the reorganization with its vessels available and service delivery continuing as normal.Commenting on the Company’s plans, Todd M. Hornbeck, Chairman, President and CEO stated, “The COVID-19 pandemic and the recent drop in oil prices due to an acute global supply-demand imbalance have significantly impacted the industries we serve, making an already challenging environment for the Company even more difficult.  The shared objectives of the Company and our creditors are to meaningfully reduce the Company’s financial leverage on a consensual basis and source new capital to position the Company for future growth.  I want to thank our secured lenders and unsecured noteholders for joining together with us on a game plan for an expedited court-supervised financial restructuring process.  This consensual approach to reorganization and recapitalization is in the best long-term interest of our Company, as it will enable us to take advantage of new opportunities while continuing to support our customers, retain our employees and pay our vendors.”As previously reported, on March 31, 2020, the Company entered into agreements pursuant to which requisite majorities of the Company’s secured lenders and unsecured noteholders agreed to forbear from exercising certain of their rights and remedies with respect to certain defaults by the Company.  Pursuant to the Restructuring Support Agreement, these forbearances are extended contemporaneously to the relevant dates in the Restructuring Support Agreement.Kirkland & Ellis LLP, Winstead PC and Jackson Walker LLP are serving as legal counsel to the Company, Guggenheim Securities, LLC is acting as financial advisor, Portage Point Partners, LLC is serving as restructuring advisor and Stretto is serving as claims and noticing agent.

Judge Blocks Indiana’s Attempt To Limit Birth Certificate Ruling

first_imgJudge Blocks Indiana’s Attempt To Limit Birth Certificate RulingMarilyn Odendahl for www.the indianalawyer.comIndiana’s motion to alter the judgment allowing both females in a same-sex marriage to be listed on their child’s birth certificate was met with a sharp caution from the bench about re-litigating or attempting to limit the court’s order.Judge Tanya Walton Pratt of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, Indianapolis Division, issued a ruling Dec. 30 granting in part and denying in part the state’s motion to alter or amend judgment in Ashlee Henderson and Ruby Henderson, et al. v Dr. Jerome Adams, et al., 1:15-cv-00220.The Hendersons and seven other female, same-sex married couples and their children had filed a complaint against the state because the birth certificates only listed the birth mother as a parent.Finding that Indiana was discriminating against these women and violating the Equal Protection and Due Process clauses, the court entered a permanent injunction preventing the state from withholding the presumption of parenthood to female, same-sex spouses of birth mothers.The state responded to the June 2016 ruling with a motion asking the court to modify and clarify the declaratory judgment and permanent injunction.In particular, it requested the court remove its order barring the state from enforcing the “born in wedlock” and “born out of wedlock” statutes. Indiana argued the plaintiffs lack standing because the law only applies to adoption proceedings.However, the court provided a reminder that the state’s Fed. R. Civ. P. Rule 59(e) motion is not an opportunity to re-litigate motions.Pratt wrote, “Because the State Defendant has failed to point out a manifest error of law or fact and seems to simply relitigate its argument from its summary judgment reply brief, the Court DENIES the Motion to Amend Judgment regarding the request to remove any declaration or injunction directed at Indiana Code 31-9-2-15 and 31-9-2-16.”Again, the court fired back when the state asked for clarification of whether the permanent injunction applied only to wives of birth mothers who conceived through artificial insemination by an anonymous donor.The court noted that nowhere in its order were “anonymous donors” discussed or considered.“The Order means what it says and says what it means,” Pratt wrote. “It applies to female, same-sex spouses of birth mothers and children born to a birth mother who is married to a same-sex spouse. It does not apply additional limitations as the State Defendant questions.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Butcher MI Dickson to extend bakery production

first_imgButcher MI Dickson is extending its South Shields bakery after getting a £200,000 boost from the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE).The family business is investing another £800,000 in kitting out the site, which will double capacity and create five new jobs. The 2,000sq m site is adding another 575sq m to the building, allowing it to produce an extra 15 tonnes of baked goods a week.MI Dickson produces cooked meats and sausages, as well as pies, pasties and bread, which is used to make sandwiches at its 20 delicatessens around the north east. Said marketing manager Elena Dickson: “The expansion will allow us to have a much better factory for baking, cooling and packing.”Pies and pasties are sold under its own brand in Asda and Sainsbury’s shops in the region, but Dickson added that, with the extra capacity, the company hoped to be able to get into local Tesco and Morrisons stores as well, before targeting nationwide distribution. Adrian Sherwood, RDPE manager at One North East, said: “The new ovens they are buying with RDPE funding are more energy-efficient than their existing ones; the refrigeration areas are better insulated and the compressors are more efficient – together ensuring reduced energy consumption.”MI Dickson was named ‘Best UK Family Business’ in the £5m-£25m turnover category of the Coutts Prize for Family Business 2009/10 and was recently visited by David Miliband MP, who toured the factory and saw the factory plans.last_img read more

Senate breaks filibuster on disaster relief funding bill

first_imgA $7 billion emergency aid bill for victims of Hurricane Irene, including the flooding in Vermont, and other natural disasters advanced to the next legislative step in the Senate late Tuesday as an initial Republican filibuster on the bill was broken in a vote of 61 to 38. The bill will replenish the depleted coffers of the Emergency Relief Fund of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).In a Senate Floor speech illustrated with stark photos of the devastation wrought upon Vermont’s highways and transportation infrastructure, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) urged the Senate to overcome “political games and point-scoring” in considering disaster relief remedies. Leahy is a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee which last week drafted and approved the core of the disaster relief bill now before the Senate.Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) said befor ethe vote: ‘Vermont communities stick together in hard times, and it has been absolutely amazing to see the volunteer efforts taking place from one end of the state to the other. We’re seeing that in almost every area, strangers coming to help people whose homes and businesses were flooded,’ Sanders said.‘But the simple fact is that Vermont cannot do it alone, nor can any other state hard hit by disaster. The scale of what Hurricane Irene did is overwhelming for a state of our size. The federal government has an important role to play in disaster relief and recovery.’The vote sets the stage for passage of the bill later this week.The text of Leahy’s remarks follows: SENATOR PATRICK LEAHY IRENE’S EFFECTS ON TRANSPORTATION IN VERMONT SENATE FLOOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2011 As Vermont continues to grapple with the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irene, I would like to call the Senate’s attention today to the severe and extensive damage that was done to our state’s transportation infrastructure and to how the washed out roads and bridges are affecting the lives of all Vermonters. These are just a few scenes of the destruction brought on by the flooding. â ¢ One of my outreach staffers in Vermont took this photo of Vermont Route 100 just south of Plymouth ‘ home to President Calvin Coolidge. You can see where the road is completely washed away ‘ and where the machine is working to reroute the road about 100 feet above the new riverbed. â ¢ I took this photo of U.S. Route 4 ‘ a major East-West route across Vermont ‘ when Governor Shumlin and I toured the state by helicopter immediately after Irene. â ¢ This third image depicts the New England Central rail line in Central Vermont, which hosts Amtrak’s Vermonter train. Economic recovery act funds had just repaired this line to nearly mint condition ; now you see parts of it are completely washed away. â ¢ Finally, this shot was taken along Vermont Route 30 in Jamaica ‘ or what’s left of it ‘ while rains from the remnants of Hurricane Lee fell in Vermont. You can see work crews trying desperately to stay ahead of the rising water. Sadly, this is just the tip of the iceberg, as roads, bridges, and rail lines all over the state have been wiped out. Flooding closed more than 300 town and state roads and damaged more than 20 bridges in Vermont, stranding people in more than a dozen towns for days. Damage to the state’s federal-aid roads and bridges will exceed half a billion dollars. It is going to take years and years to recover. It has been extremely difficult to move emergency supplies and rebuilding materials around, as some of the washed-out roads have gaping gullies in the middle that are 30 feet or more deep, and some of the reopened roads and bridges are not yet recommended for heavy traffic. The consequences have been harsh. Residents are forced to make 30-mile-plus detours to the nearest grocery store or doctor ‘ on mountain roads, some of them unpaved. Businesses are struggling to reopen and find customers. Schools have been forced to remain closed until repairs are made. And tourists are worried about traveling to Vermont this fall to see the foliage or this winter to do some skiing. The end of construction season in Vermont is fast approaching. By November it will be too cold to lay asphalt, and by December snow and ice will cover the mountains, leaving many towns dangerously isolated. I applaud the Vermont Agency of Transportation, the Vermont National Guard, and work crews and Guardsmen from states all around the country for moving quickly to make emergency road repairs and install temporary bridges. These are lifelines to the hardest hit communities. But we need to make more permanent repairs as soon as possible or future rains and the fall’s freeze-thaw cycle will further deteriorate our roads and make them all put impassable this winter. Given the breadth and depth of Irene’s destruction, on top of the ongoing disasters already declared in all 50 states, we must ensure that FEMA and the Department of Transportation have all of the resources they need to help our citizens in their desperate time of need. We must act quickly to replenish the FEMA Disaster Relief Fund and the Federal Highway Emergency Road Fund ‘ both of which are at dangerously low levels right now. Without supplemental funding to these and other emergency accounts, Vermont and all of the other 49 states with ongoing federal disasters will not have the resources they need to rebuild. With so much on the line, so starkly, for so many, it would be harmful and unseemly to play politics with disaster relief. Thousands of American families and businesses have been devastated by an unprecedented series of floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires, and other natural disasters this year. The people hurting out there are not worried about Democrats against Republicans or Red States versus Blue States. They are desperate for a helping hand from their fellow Americans. We are one Nation, and we traditionally have come to aid of our fellow Americans in times of need. In my 37 years in the United States Senate, we always have dealt with disaster bills together, working across the aisle, in a spirit of bipartisanship. As a nation, can we afford to toss that tradition and cooperation overboard? It is unconscionable that some have decided to inject politics and political point-scoring into a situation that already is so difficult and so laden with grim realities for so many of our fellow citizens. Leader Reid is right to bring an emergency disaster relief package to the floor that will get aid to all 50 states suffering from the effects of unprecedented natural disasters. But we need Republican cooperation to get this urgent job done. I encourage my colleagues to end a shameful filibuster of this essential disaster relief bill, and let us proceed to a full debate on how to help our fellow Americans as quickly as possible. # # # # #last_img read more

41% of items on the average to-do list are never finished

first_imgby: Dan BergerDo you like to use to-do lists? I do, but like most people, I rarely complete all my list items. However, I don’t feel that bad about it – at least not now:  According to an article in Forbes, 41 percent of the items on the average to-do list are never finished.That means that to-do lists often turn into more of a source of stress than satisfaction. “It’s no wonder we feel so overwhelmed in the day, but fight insomnia at night,” Forbes notes.Also – when you pick items to finish from the list, are you picking the most important items or just focusing on what can get done fast? That can leave important issues – like regular check-ups with your doctor – unaddressed because of that never-ending list of more “urgent” (but less important) tasks.Forbes contributor Kevin Kruse says that in his more than 200 interviews with billionaires, Olympic athletes and entrepreneurs, no one has mentioned a to-do list. Instead, he says, they “live and work from their calendar.” Calendars show you how much time you’re spending on each issue, allow you to prioritize and keep things balanced. When you’re not trying to race through a list but are working to balance your week, you might find it helps you focus on what you need – and what your team needs. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The stats on voice banking

first_img 17SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » When consumers talk, it’s always a good idea to listen. And right now, they’re talking about voice banking. In response, you should ask an important question: Is our credit union ready to meet those expectations?The popularity of voice banking—or conversational banking, which includes chat messaging functions—is evident across multiple market indicators, including the most recent quarterly consumer trends survey by Fiserv. The Expectations & Experiences: Channels and New Entrants survey found that half of consumers used a voice-activated device in the past year, with 79% doing so through their smartphones. The research, surveyed adults who used their checking accounts to pay a bill or make a purchase in the 30 days prior to the survey, also found that 8% of consumers used a hands-free voice-activated device, such as Amazon Echo or Google Home in the past year. That percentage doesn’t seem so small when you consider the product category was not even widely available until mid-2015.A multigenerational appealThe growing interest in voice banking is also compelling for credit unions constantly in search of ways to enhance consumer experiences to spark deeper and broader engagement.last_img read more

Court rules simultaneous elections as ‘most constitutional’

first_imgThe Constitutional Court (MK) has ruled against the plaintiffs of the review petition on the simultaneous general elections that aimed to have the practice abolished, saying that the presidential, House of Representatives, and Regional Representatives Council (DPD) elections must be held concurrently.During the hearing on Wednesday, justice Saldi Isra communicated the court’s belief that holding the presidential and national legislative elections separately would directly contradict the 1945 Constitution.“The court believes that the most constitutional method to be to hold the elections for both the presidency and the national legislature simultaneously,” Saldi said as quoted by Antara News. “Holding the general election for the national legislature and the president and vice president simultaneously is the logical consequence of trying to strengthen the presidential system.” The petitioners, which comprised election watchdogs Pemantau Pemilu Arjuna and Pemantau Pemilu Pena, had argued that the 2019 simultaneous elections had caused many deaths in addition to making it difficult for voters to get to know all the candidates.Last year’s presidential and legislative elections in Indonesia, held simultaneously on April 17, 2019, were dubbed the most complex single-day election in the world. Unlike in the past, when the presidential election was held around three months after the legislative election, voters across the country were given five ballot papers to cast in a single day, one ballot paper each for the presidential election and four legislative elections: the House of Representatives, the provincial and the regental or municipal Regional Legislative Councils (DPRDs) and the DPD. This meant that voters had to choose from among hundreds of candidates, while polling station workers worked overtime to ensure that the ballots were counted within the given deadline. Overwork is thought to have been a contributing factor in the deaths of over 500 polling station workers in the month following the election, many from exhaustion, sleep deprivation and ensuing health complications.Despite its ruling that the presidential and House elections must be held simultaneously, the court did not rule out the possibility for the other, lower-level legislative elections to be held separately.Saldi read out five possible alternatives, including a simultaneous election for the presidency, House and DPD while a separate simultaneous election could be held for regional heads and DPRDs.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has stated that 2020 will be the worst year in history for airlines, with global airlines expected to face a combined US$84.3 billion in losses.The MCB scheme is part of the government’s national economic recovery (PEN) program, to support the recovery of the virus battered economy. The government expects the fiscal deficit to reach 6.34 percent this year as it allocates Rp 695.2 trillion in stimuli, partially to bolster the economy amid the pandemic.Under Government Regulation No. 23/3030 on the national economic recovery program, the government has allocated more than Rp 152 trillion to bail out SOEs through PMN, among other mechanisms, of which Garuda is set to receive Rp 8.5 trillion. The House of Representatives has given the green light for the government to provide Rp 8.5 trillion (US$583 million) for pandemic-hit national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, in the form of a mandatory convertible bond (MCB).The MCB will require conversion of the said bond into stocks in accordance with the contractual conversion date. The MCB for the airline is expected to have a tenor of three years, with state-owned infrastructure financing company PT Sarana Multi Infrastruktur (SMI) projected to act as a buyer for the bond and eventually a shareholder of the company.The legislature made the decision after a working meeting with State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) Minister Erick Thohir on Wednesday, citing the reason that Garuda could not receive state-capital injections (PMN) as it is a publicly listed company. Garuda Indonesia service and business development director Ade R. Susardi said on a separate occasion that the company was in dire need of government funding as it had been operating at a loss since the COVID-19 outbreak hit Indonesia.“Our flight occupancy rate currently stands at around 40 percent, which cannot even cover the operation cost. We hope that Garuda can receive funding in the form of MCB,” he said during an online webinar held by The Habibie Center on Wednesday.Garuda’s flight traffic has also fallen to around 40 daily flights as of July from the average rate of 330 daily flights before the crisis, Ade added.As the number of passengers fell, Garuda saw a 30 percent year-on-year slump in revenue to $768.12 million in the first quarter from $1.1 billion in the same period last year. The company also booked a $120 million loss in the first quarter this year, compared to $20.48 million profit in the January-March period of 2019.Read also: Garuda books $120m net loss in Q1 as travel industry hit hard by COVID-19Amid its financial woes, the company recently secured a three-year extension on $500 million worth of global sukuk (global Islamic bonds) that were due in June, as a result of liquidity problems caused by the pandemic.“We are now trying to increase the number of passengers in order to help Garuda by convincing passengers that it is safe to fly. With the rising number of passengers, we can boost our cash flow,” Ade said.Convincing the public about the safety of air travel has become a major challenge for the aviation industry, as in a recent survey conducted by state-owned airport operator Angkasa Pura I, 84 percent of respondents said they were still taking a “wait-and-see” approach toward using air transportation.Garuda was previously embroiled in an incident on June 27, when a passenger was allowed to board a Garuda Indonesia flight from Jakarta to Sorong, West Papua, despite having recently tested positive for COVID-19.Topics :last_img read more

Greek, Italian lenders receive capital boost from EU IFRS 9

first_imgThe release of the data followed the announcement last month by the European Commission of measures to relieve the regulatory and capital burden on Europe’s lenders during the coronavirus pandemic.In particular, the Commission urged lenders to adopt the IFRS 9 transitional measures it first proposed back in 2018 to phase in the move from the International Accounting Standards Board’s legacy impairment model under International Accounting Standard 39 to International Financial Reporting Standard 9.The transitional arrangement allows banks to add back in IFRS 9-related additional impairment allowances over a gradually reducing five-year timeframe, starting with 95% in 2018 and reducing to 25% in 2022.IFRS 9, which the EU adopted with effect from 1 January 2018, sets out to address the concern that the backward-looking IAS 39 incurred-loss impairment model meant banks were too slow to book losses during the 2008 Financial Crisis.The standard instead requires lenders to book an upfront impairment allowance when it takes a financial asset on to its books.This allowance is an estimate of the anticipated full life-time losses that the bank expects to materialise over a 12-month time horizon.The transparency exercise, in contrast to a stress test, presents a snapshot of the capital position, assets and liabilities, and leverage of some 127 banks across the EU and EEA at the relevant reference dates.Meanwhile, the data also revealed that the French and UK banks in the sample lead their peers in terms of trading book volumes.The total trading assets of French banks in the survey came in at €1.4trn with UK banks following with €1.2trn.The percentage portfolio holdings are potentially significant because trading book assets are generally accounted for at fair value under IFRS 9.IFRS 13, which determines the process for measuring assets at fair value, features a three-level hierarchy.Assets reported under Level 1 of that framework rely on quoted market prices. Assets under Levels 2 and 3, however, are priced according to modelled outputs.The majority of the assets classified to fair value by French and UK banks are in Level 2.Critics of this approach say that Levels 2 and 3 concentrate risk in times of a sudden shock to the financial system because such assets are in danger of becoming highly illiquid.However, in February of this year, the European Systemic Risk Board issued a report in which it noted that EU banks held fair value assets worth some €7.3trn on their balance sheets in December 2018.Of this total, some €2.4trn were accounted for at Level 1 under the fair value hierarchy, €4.6trn were in Level 2 and €300bn in Level 3.The ESRB said this represented a “sizeable decline in the total value of financial instruments measured at fair value” compared with the position at the end of 2016 and noted that it was “driven by a decline in derivative positions”.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here. Greek and Italian banks made the greatest use of the European Union’s transitional relief aimed at relieving the burden on the bloc’s banks of the move to a more burdensome forward-looking loan-loss accounting model.Transparency data released by the European Banking Authority (EBA) covering 30 September and December 2019 revealed that the four Greek lenders in the survey boosted their total capital by some €4.8bn.The same survey data also revealed that 11 Italian banks increased their total capital position by €6.4bn.EBA chair Jose Manuel Campa said: “The EBA considers that the provision to market participants of continuous information on banks’ exposures and asset quality is crucial, particularly in moments of increased uncertainty.”last_img read more

OSRL Rolls Out New Subsea Well Capping Technology

first_imgOil Spill Response Limited’s (OSRL) latest development in subsea well capping technology, Offset Installation Equipment (OIE), has been officially launched from the equipment’s new home base in Trieste, Italy.The event, which featured figures from across the offshore industry, represented the culmination of six years work between members of the Subsea Well Intervention Project (SWRP), OSRL and oil and gas engineering specialists, Saipem.Designed specifically for scenarios where direct vertical access to a wellhead is not possible, the new OIE enables well capping or related equipment to be installed at a safe distance from an incident for the first time, OSRL explained.OIE is now available to existing OSRL members through a Subsea Well Intervention Services (SWIS) supplementary agreement and current OIE members include BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Petrobras, Shell, Statoil and Total – all of which represent the founding members of SWRP.The OIE’s arrival is an industry first and coincides with the final phase of SWRP, following completion of the related capping and containment projects, as OSRL’s chief executive, Robert Limb, explains: “For us, and all those involved in SWRP, the launch of the OIE is final piece of the puzzle and the culmination of a lot of hard work. Since the formation of the project in 2011, we had one core objective; to design and build a comprehensive range of well capping solutions, with the flexibility to meet the current and future requirements of the industry. With the arrival of OIE here in Italy, that objective is met.”SWRP Project Lead, Eli Bøhnsdalen, commented: “OIE has the potential to make a huge difference in the time it takes to cap a well or stop a critical blowout and has never been attempted before. With that in mind, it is with great pride that I’m able to say the equipment is now available to the industry. Saipem, which has been responsible for the design, fabrication and testing, will now be responsible for the OIE’s ongoing storage and maintenance, from its base here, in Trieste. Saipem’s extensive experience working with equipment designed for harsh environments, remote areas and deepwater means that the OIE couldn’t be in safer hands.”Stefano Porcari, COO of Saipem’s E&C offshore division, added: “Working on such a pioneering and prestigious project involved Saipem’s know-how from various technological centres and represented a unique opportunity to test Saipem expertise in technology and innovation. OIE marks an unprecedented solution for use in the event of a subsea well incident, where vertical well access by vessel is not possible. Having actively participated in this project constitutes a remarkable achievement of which we are proud.”OIE equipment can be deployed up to 500 metres from an incident site and is suitable for use at a working depth of 75 to 600 metres. OIE is also fully compatible with OSRL’s capping equipment, creating an end-to-end capping and containment solution suitable for almost all subsea scenarios.In line with OSRL’s approach, each member organisation will be provided with training to enable their own experienced personnel to understand the capabilities of the system and operate the OIE during an incident. Following the end of SWRP, the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) through the Well Experts Committee (WEC) will work with OSRL to ensure that all stakeholders gain awareness of OIE’s capabilities as part of the process of promoting the adoption of good practice worldwide.last_img read more

Chelsea announce £96.6m loss

first_imgRelatedPosts Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Chelsea sink Brighton to make winning start Chelsea recorded a loss of nearly £100 million for the year ending June 30, 2019 as the club released their latest financial results. However, despite the figures, the Blues insisted they are still compliant with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations. Turnover grew marginally to £446.7 million with the club citing a lack of Champions League football, costs associated with changing manager and a record outlay on players Kepa Arrizabalaga, Christian Pulisic, Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho for the £96.6 million loss. Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says the club can’t be too “reactionary” in the January transfer window after having their ban lifted Chairman Bruce Buck said: “Consistent revenue growth and careful financial management over recent seasons has allowed the club to make significant levels of investment in the playing staff whilst maintaining compliance with UEFA Financial Fair Play regulations. “This has contributed to another Europa League victory at the end of the 2018-19 season and a return to the highest level of European competition. “This solid commercial foundation, allied to a young and exciting team now led by Frank Lampard, means that the club is well placed to sustain its pursuit of success both on and off the pitch as well as maintain its financial stability over the coming years.”Tags: ChelseaKepa ArrizabalagaMateo KovacicUEFA Financial Fair Playlast_img read more

Buxton wins ‘eastern derby’, Kings hold up Conquerors

first_img…another Elite double-header on todayBy Ras WadadaBUXTON United, aided by poor goalkeeping, carved out a 3-2 win over Monedderlust FC, while a resilient Victoria Kings held Fruta Conquerors to the first score-less tie of season two when Game Day two was played at the Tucville ground last Friday.After over an hour delay the first encounter was played before several dozen spectators who did not have to wait long to see the first goal of the ‘eastern derby’. Speedy left midfielder Teron McDonald broke the deadlock in the 17th minute when he fired a powerful right-booter from inside the area that rocked the net at the far post to give the number five village side the early initiative.The celebrations had barely ended when the Buxtonians equalized after the first of three costly errors by the Monedderlust’s goalkeeper, Elvis Rutherford. His failed grasp from in the box was quickly pounced on by Dillon Wright who scored in an open goal after stealing the rebound.Inspired by the equalizer and led by a dominant Captain Devor Dennis in the midfield,the Buxtonians took the lead in the 32nd minute when Wright, in what appeared to be an attempted cross, scored again.His instep left booter, after eluding his marker, from close to the left corner pole sailed over the head of Rutherford at the near post and into the ‘V’ of the far post much to the disbelief of the custodian. Wright should have made it a treble ten minutes later but his effort, from close up, on an unguarded goal went wide of the upright.Kenston Lindley then gleefully accepted a loose ball in the area after a poor clearance by the Buxton’s defense to level the score in the first of three minutes of time added on for the first segment.The Herbert McPherson-coached side continued to dominate the proceedings after the interval as Monedderlust’s coach, Floyd Cadogan made substitutions in an effort to regain the lead, but it was Buxton, who always looked in control that took the lead.The 45-metres direct free-kick by Captain Dennis, in the 65th minute, somehow grazed through the hands of Rutherford much to the surprise of all since it came straight to him and inches above his height. If the first or second goal did not take the fight and spirit from the Monedderlust team, the third one certainly did as it turned out to be the winner and no points from the opening game for the Berbicians.Both sides will be in action again today when competition switches to Camp Ayangana where there will be another double-header. In the opening game set for 16:00hrs, Top XX oppose Monederlust and in the feature game to follow, the Army tackle Buxton United.Meanwhile,the nigh cap for last Friday produced the first score-less stalemate and Red Card of season two when a very determined effort by Victoria Kings dashed all hopes Fruta Conquerors had of securing three more maximum points.The Kings looked a different unit with the League’s oldest player at 42, Winston Pompey in the line-up and in control of the midfield. The game which was fiercely contested produced very little creativity in the final third at both ends of the pitch.The youthful home side did make inroads down the flanks but more than often their crosses were well cut out by stalwart defending in the middle by former national player Sherlock Dowden in tandem with Shawn Samuels.After the break the game continued in the same physical vein causing referee Sherwin Johnson to caution 16 year-old Raushan Ritch the left back for Conquerors in the 56th minute for a rough tackle on the 40year-old Aubrey Gibson. Conquerors were denied the lead by a headed clearance off the line by Dowden with the goalkeeper out of position in the 72nd minute and three minutes later they were reduced to ten.Ritch who was having a solid game received his second Yellow Card in the 75th minute and with it came the first expulsion from a game in the new season. Although they looked tired towards the end the Sampson Gilbert-coached side withstood all the Kings had to offer and in the end the points were shared.It was a solid rebound for the Kings who were dubbed 7-1 in their first game by the GDF while Conquerors will be disappointed at dropping their first two points after a comfortable 3-0 opening win against Top XX.last_img read more

Swimmer Lian Winter – getting back on focus as she prepares for CARIFTA

first_imgQUALIFYING for the CARIFTA Swimming Championships is a big step for 13-year-old swimmer Lian Winter, who had earlier this year gotten off to a bad start in her season clocking times way below her norm.The Dorado Speed Swim Club athlete says she just wasn’t feeling it for swimming, but now her eyes are set on doing her best to represent Guyana well at the CARIFTA Swimming Championships set for April 14-19 in the Bahamas.“I don’t know what happened during that time. I just wasn’t feeling like myself, but now I’m starting to get back there,” Winter said, as she reflected on how her year has been going so far.But now it’s all about putting on a good show and making her country and herself proud when she hits the pool in the Bahamas.“I will push myself hard, I really think I could medal at this meet, and even if I don’t medal, I’ll be happy knowing that I pushed myself as hard as I could,” Winter declared.Lian WinteWinter is one of three Guyanese swimmers who made qualifying times for the international CARIFTA meet, and one of only two who will be travelling, after one of the other swimmers had conflicting academic commitments.So the Guyana team this year will only comprise herself and national age group record holder Leon Seaton.Lian will be in six events at the meet: the 50m, 100m and 200m butterfly, and the 50m, 100m and 200m backstroke.Attending this meet will be the biggest thing for Winter since she first began swimming competitively back in 2011. Winter’s progress since then has been slow, but steady.She has so far represented Guyana at the regional Goodwill Swim Meet, and the Inter-Guiana Games (IGG). Her high point came last year December after scoring her first medal overseas, when she won bronze in the girls’ 11-12 200m butterfly of the ASATT Invitational.Making it into regional competition has been somewhat of a struggle for Winter, who admits that when she first started competing regionally she was totally bowled over by just how competitive things were outside of Guyana.“At first I was like, okay, I was doing so well in Guyana and I was thinking that this (competing) overseas, was just going to be as normal and fun, but then I got beaten by a lot of people. I felt normal, but I didn’t expect it to be so hard,” Winter related.But of course perseverance is the key, and Winter says she has too many persons supporting her and wanting her to succeed for her to just throw in the towel anytime soon.“When I don’t meet those goals, I just keep telling myself that there is always next time and I just have to keep pushing myself hard to get to those goals. Yea, there are times when my coach pushes me hard and I would feel like dropping out but everyone is expecting things from me so I have to push,” she says.last_img read more

West Indies  set to announceWorld Cup squad tomorrow

first_img…Russell, Pollard, Narine: Who will make the Windies 15?WITH just a day to go before the Tuesday deadline set by the ICC, West Indies remain the only team yet to announce their squad for the upcoming World Cup.ESPNcricinfo understand Cricket West Indies (CWI) will submit the 15-man squad to the ICC today, but will announce the squad only tomorrow afternoon in Barbados (1.30 pm local time).The squad will be picked by the freshly appointed interim selection panel chaired by Robert Haynes, along with Jimmy Adams (director of cricket) and West Indies’ newly appointed coach Floyd Reifer.Although Jason Holder will continue to be the captain and Chris Gayle will almost certainly play his fifth World Cup, questions remain over the participation of the country’s other superstars, who have been successful in the last five years in domestic T20 leagues around the world.Will Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, and even Dwayne Bravo, who opted to retire from international cricket last year, find a spot? Will Marlon Samuels, who has recovered from his knee injury, get the opportunity to play his fourth World Cup?The hope comes from a new administration taking charge at CWI. Ricky Skerritt, the newly elected president of CWI, who was also once the manager of the West Indies team at the turn of the millennium, had said that the selectors will be looking at all available options.The key questions for the selectors concern the two allrounders that would feature in addition to Holder. Will it be Russell and Carols Brathwaite? Who will be Gayle’s opening partner, Evin Lewis or John Campbell? Who among Devendra Bishoo, Ashley Nurse and Fabian Allen will be part of the spinners’ group? Who among Keemo Paul, Sheldon Cottrell and Shannon Gabriel will accompany Kemar Roach in the fast bowling group? Will Nicholas Pooran make it as the back-up wicketkeeper?With about 24 hours left for squad to be finalised, ESPNcricinfo has listed the key names Haynes’ selection panel will deliberate on.last_img read more

Men’s Hockey: Crease Creatures craziest student section in hockey

first_imgThe No. 7 University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (4-2-0, 0-0-0 Big Ten) has impressed in a major way through the first few weeks of the new season, but without the Crease Creatures and the rest of the Kohl Center faithful, their success may not have come to fruition.Behind star freshmen Alex Turcotte and Cole Caufield, the Badgers wouldn’t be standing as the potential team to beat come conference play in November. But it’s impossible to give credit to the team without the fans and the atmosphere of the Kohl Center.Formed as a student organization in 2017, the Crease Creatures have increased the gameday atmosphere during home hockey games for several years now. Unlike previous years, however, the Creatures are now a full-fledged organization that is being supported by the UW Athletic Department and the hockey team, including student giveaways.“The difference is this year, our adviser, Allison [Minisce] came to us and she’s like ‘What could we do for a student giveaway,’ and we ended up deciding on red glow sticks and red student t-shirts for the home opener,” Director of Gameday Atmosphere Jack Pientka said.Crease Creatures: the story behind UW’s first hockey student orgWhen you’re standing in the student section of the Kohl Center, it can be easy to feel distant from all Read…With the leadership of organizational board members — including President JT Nejedlo, Vice President Ashley Cherney, Secretary Kaitlin Indermuehle and Pientka — the club has found their sweet spot in 2019.In their first meeting, the group said they had about 25 members come to learn more about what the Creatures are all about. They also stated there are approximately 45 members in their club group chat.With the help of these “official” members and the rest of the student section, the Crease Creatures successfully cheered the Badgers to a home sweep against the two-time defending NCAA Champion Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs.In game one of the weekend matchup, the Badgers scored three goals in the third period to win 6–2. To follow up that performance, the Badgers came out Saturday night and put the Bulldogs away with two goals in the second period en route to a 3–1 victory. The atmosphere of both games was truly insane and much of that energy can be chalked up to the Crease Creatures and the rest of the student section.“[Coach Granato] says it, and he’ll say it again: The energy in the Kohl Center comes from the student section,” Cherney said. “And that’s why we definitely need people to pack those stands.”Men’s Hockey: Badgers dominate reigning NCAA Champion Minnesota-Duluth in home-opening sweepThe No. 6 ranked University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (3-1-0) made a big statement this past weekend in front Read…The Crease Creatures were created as a way to both increase attendance and interaction with the men’s hockey team. Today, it’s safe to say that goal has been met.Between the planning of student giveaways and the annual “Skate with the Badgers” event, the connectedness of the hockey community has steadily risen for the past several years, even with teams that have underperformed.Despite this lack of success, this season provides hope for fans as the team finds themselves with several top draft picks from the 2019 NHL Draft and stands as the No. 6 team in the country to this point. In their home-opening weekend, the Badgers displayed their incredible scoring ability against one of the best teams in the country, reinforcing the hope in longtime Badger fans.“We haven’t made it to the NCAA Tournament and that feels like something that we should’ve been in some years, but we haven’t been in it for awhile now,” Pientka said. “So with all the talent we have on the team I think that getting into that tournament should be the hope at a minimum.”Men’s Hockey: Badgers NHL draftees set to take off in freshman seasonFollowing an NHL Draft that featured four Badgers, the University of Wisconsin squad is loaded with young talent. Alex Turcotte, Read…What separates the Crease Creatures from a conventional hockey fan is their vested interest and love for the game. The Creatures are an organization for hockey fans who want to be part of more than just a game and care about making the gameday experience and atmosphere better.Many of the Crease Creatures weren’t even that into hockey before coming to UW. In fact, both Ashley and JT came from backgrounds that didn’t involve watching much hockey, professionally or collegiately.“I watched professional hockey a little bit in middle school, but I’ve never had a connection to any sort of team,” Nejedlo said. “I came here and I thought the games were a lot of fun, so that’s pretty much the only hockey that I watch.”With the help of the Crease Creatures, the student section and the rest of the mass of fans that enter the Kohl Center each night, expect Wisconsin to continue to thrive in home matchups all season and hopefully make a return to the NCAA Tournament come April.You can learn more about the Crease Creatures by following them on Twitter @CreaseCreatures or you can attend a UW men’s hockey game and search for the loudest fans in the student section.last_img read more

Women’s volleyball grabs two more home victories

first_imgSophomore opposite hitter Khalia Lanier led the Women of Troy to victories over Utah and Colorado last week, totaling 38 kills across the two matches. Photo by Ling Luo | Daily TrojanThe women’s volleyball team collected two more wins at home last week to improve to 20-7 on the season. The No. 17 Women of Troy surged past No. 15 Utah on Thursday night 3-1 and narrowly edged No. 25 Colorado 3-2 on Saturday. With the two victories, USC moved to 10-1 at home and 12-4 against Pac-12 conference opponents this year, and the team rose to No. 14 in this week’s AVCA Coaches poll. The Women of Troy played a five-set thriller against the Buffaloes on Saturday afternoon. USC raced out an early 10-8 lead, but a 7-1 Colorado run shifted the momentum in the first set. The Trojans responded with a 7-2 run of their own to take a slight 18-17 lead. But crucial attack errors allowed the Buffaloes to break off another 7-0 run to seize a 24-18 advantage, and they eventually claimed the first set 25-20.The Trojans rebounded in the second frame, leading by as much as 9 points to tie things up with a 25-17 win. The third set was an extremely close battle, as neither team could gain a distinct advantage with several tied scores and short-lived leads. USC tied it late at 24 and took brief 1-point leads, but the Buffaloes never gave up, knotting the set up at 26-26 and later 27-27. Eventually, a kill by Abu Naghede and a USC attack error gave the Buffaloes a 29-27 third-set win.The Buffaloes took an early 3-2 lead in the fourth, but the Trojans responded with a devastating 18-3 run to take a 20-3 lead, and they surged to a 25-11 win to tie the match 2-2. Despite trailing 8-6 early on in the final frame, the Women of Troy rallied back with a 9-3 run to clinch the match with a 15-11 fifth-set victory.The Women of Troy were led by sophomore outside hitter Khalia Lanier, who recorded a double-double with 21 kills and 14 digs on a .333 hitting percentage. Freshman opposite hitter Brooke Botkin chipped in 14 kills on .290 hitting percentage, and senior opposite hitters Niki Withers and Brittany Abercrombie combined for 21 kills.

The team will return to the Galen Center to face UCLA on Nov. 25 for its regular-season finale.last_img read more

To Nationals from Astros, Will Harris becomes teammate from rival as deal agreed

first_img Sreehari Menon Will Harris was one of the top remaining relievers on the free-agent market and the Washington Nationals have landed him with a sizable investment. Harris will be 38 when the contract expires. There are no additional options at the end of it. The right-hander will straightaway become one of the top arms in Washington’s bullpen, which was a severe weakness this past season. Though Will Harris has a long track record of success, a three-year commitment is significant considering that the righty turned 35 last August. Only two other relievers Drew Pomeranz and Will Smith received three or more guaranteed years in free agency this off-season. Also Read: MLB Trade Rumours: Rangers Chase Ozuna, Braves Contemplate Donaldson ReunionMLB trade rumours: Nationals unlikely to pursue Daniel Hudson after Will Harris captureThe Will Harris deal means the Washington Nationals are unlikely to pursue Hudson, a free agent who expressed a desire to come back to Washington. The Nationals were not willing to pay Daniel Hudson for more than two years and $10 million, according to sources. Hudson was looking for something close to the two-year, $14 million deal reliever Chris Martin signed with the Atlanta Braves in November.Also Read: MLB: Gio Gonzalez Adds To Chicago White Sox’s Rotation After Signing $5 Million DealMLB trade rumours: Will Harris adds significant depth to the NationalsAfter re-signing Howie Kendrick, Stephen Strasburg and Yan Gomes, Will Harris represents the first significant new face to join the Nationals this off-season.  The bullpen was undeniably a substantial need for the Nationals, who also have to fill posts at third base (after Anthony Rendon’s exit), second base, and first base, though Kendrick will be deployed around the infield in some manner and star prospect Carter Kieboom is expected to play a more prominent role in 2020. Clearly there aren’t any hard feelings on Harris’ part and the Nationals are undoubtedly happy to add such a highly-touted reliever to their bullpen.Also Read: MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates Sign Up Socrates Brito, Miguel Del Pozo And Phillip Evans Last Updated: 3rd January, 2020 18:31 IST To Nationals From Astros, Will Harris Becomes Teammate From Rival As Deal Agreed Washington Nationals have added a significant name to their bullpen, snapping up Will Harris from rivals Houston Astros in a reported $24 million deal. The Major League Baseball (MLB) off-season is in full swing and Washington Nationals have made a further foray into the trade market. The Nationals have reportedly snapped up Will Harris on a 3-year deal.

Bolt pulls out of Zurich meet

first_imgAfter his 9.98 100m performance in Warsaw on Saturday night, Usain Bolt has decided to end his 2014 season and will not compete in the 100m in the IAAF Diamond League final in Zurich this coming Thursday, organisers for the Swiss meeting announced on Sunday (24).Usain Bolt’s background training this year was disrupted by injury and while his coach Glen Mills is satisfied with his performances in the three competitions he took part in, he feels it is now time to bring an end to the season while the sprinter is healthy and injury free, with a view to his preparations for the 2015 season.Bolt will now take a period of rest, do some sponsor activities, and then resume training in October.Patrick Magyar, Meeting Director of Weltklasse Zurich, regrets but understands Bolt and his coach’s decision: “Usain’s body has delivered tremendous performances over the last years but it is a body and not a machine.If an athlete of that level and his coach feel more rest is needed, we are certainly not going to question this and fully support this decision.”last_img read more

Bolt breaks 10 seconds for first time this season in Monaco win

first_imgEight-times Olympic sprinting champion Usain Bolt ran under 10 seconds for the first time this year as he narrowly won the 100 metres at the Monaco Diamond League meeting on Friday.The Jamaican was slow out of the blocks, just as he was in his last race in Ostrava last month, and never managed to put a big gap between him and the field.He won in 9.95 seconds, three hundredths of a second ahead of American Isiah Young. South Africa’s Akani Simbine was third in 10.02.Before the meeting, Bolt went to Germany to have treatment on back issues that have troubled him for years. It was his last outing before next month’s world championships in London where he will race in the 100 metres and 4x100m relay.Olympic and world champion Wayde Van Niekerk won a titanic battle against Botwana’s Isaac Makwala to take the 400 metres.The South African, also the world record holder in the event, made a lightning start, then Makwala recovered to lead coming off the final bend before Van Niekerk powered down the final straight to win in 43.73 seconds. Makwala’s time of 43.84 was a personal best. Van Niekerk’s fellow South African, Caster Semenya, won a dramatic women’s 800 metres in a season’s best and meeting record time of 1:55.27.The Olympic champion snatched the win in the last few metres ahead of Burundi’s Francine Niyonsaba and Ajee Wilson, who both set national records. The trio had been neck and neck down the final straight.Wilson’s 1:55.61 shattered the previous U.S. record of 1:56.40 set by Jearl Miles-Clark in 1999.Elijah Manangoi upstaged a strong field to win the men’s 1500 metres in a year’s best time of 3:28.80. He sped past compatriot Timothy Cheruiyot on the final straight after the two broke clear of the field while Olympic champion Matt Centrowitz was well beaten in ninth.Manangoi’s fellow Kenyan, Emmanuel Korir, also ran the fastest time of the year as he won the men’s 800 metres in 1:43.10.last_img read more

It may be tough keeping Trax of this series

first_imgThe first time Greinke faced Cardinals No. 2 hitter Carlos Beltran, for example, was a three-pitch at-bat. All of the pitches were called strikes.The first two pitches nicked the outer edge of the strike zone box. The third, a back-door slider, was a hair outside, but umpire Gerry Davis called Beltran out.Beltran stood at the plate a bit baffled but walked away.In the third inning, after Greinke set down eight in a row, he gave up a single to pitcher Joe Kelly. Then came a walk to Matt Carpenter.Beltran came up again with Greinke suddenly on the ropes.First pitch: Taken low, ball one.Second pitch: Shows it hits the bottom left of the batter’s box. Beltran takes it. Davis calls ball two.Third pitch: Low and just outside the box. Beltran swings and misses. Strike one.Fourth pitch: Way outside. Ball three.Fifth pitch: Bottom right of the strike zone. Beltran swings and doubles off the wall in center field to tie the game 2-2.What did we learn from that exchange? Not quite sure. But maybe the fact Greinke got the borderline strike call the first time, but not the second time, was either just how the graphic was calibrated or Davis was adjusting his calls to how Greinke performed at the moment.It’s left to our own confusing interpretation, really.When the Dodgers start up their own network next season, will they resort to employing it based on a producer’s philosophy on how to do a game that’s supposed to be more in tune with how younger viewers are used to watching? Or is there already enough clutter on a TV screen, having more real estate to cover because of today’s wide-screen technology?It may be that we’ve finally been able to finally decipher that score/ball/strike/out/baserunner dot-pattern on the top left corner as a baseball instrument rather than a bowling alley scratch pad.Would a Dodger PitchTrax cause Vin Scully to adjust the way he describes a game on TV? It could. And if it did, would we all be better for it?Keep watching, and see how it starts to skew your judgment, right or wrong. Then decide if it’s something you want in your wheelhouse.• If you’re apt to believe the Vegas wise guys have it figured out, the Dodgers will knock the Cardinals out in seven games, according to Bovada, which has set the odds of that prediction at the lowest, 7/2. A Dodgers win in six is next at 4/1.A Cardinals win in six or seven is next at 5/1.But then again, why even bother with that? The Dodgers already are dead even with Boston to win the World Series at 12/5, according to them as well. St. Louis is only a 3/1 choice.A Dodgers-Red Sox match-up, if you wanted to pick a match-up, is at 2/1, with Dodgers-Tigers at 5/2. Read between the lines: they’re saying the Dodgers’’chances are better than advancing than the Cardinals, since a pairing of the Cardinals/Red Sox (11/4) or Cardinals/Tigers (7/2) are higher odds.• TBS reported viewership has been up six percent compared to last year for viewership of the division series games, even with two fewer Game 5’s.The five most-watched games, however, don’t involve the Dodgers, who exist in the country’s No. 2 TV market.Those would be:1.Pittsburgh vs. St. Louis, NLDS Game 5: 6.1 million total viewers2.Detroit vs. Oakland, ALDS Game 5: 5.5 million3.Boston vs. Tampa Bay, ALDS Game 4: 5.2 million4.Tampa Bay vs. Cleveland, A.L.

She’s seeking 100 responses.Then what?Not much, really. They’ve been attempted in past years, and none of the networks have been tempted to bite.Representatives at TBS already have admitted getting Scully to be part of its NLCS coverage has been discussed but is not likely. Fox has the World Series starting Oct. 23 and likely would consider having Scully as a guest broadcaster only in middle innings. TBS has used it for years now, refining it on its regular-season Sunday package of games that you’ve most likely checked out infrequently.The pros: If accurate, it’s another decent tool to demonstrate things such as how a) Yasiel Puig really does swing at a lot of balls or b) an ump can change the zone to his liking no matter what the computer says, and the players seem to live with it as long as he’s consistent.The cons: If you start relying on it as an exact science, you miss the point.It’s daunting enough to try to figure out just what the rectangle box with red and green circled numbers means after a while. During some extended at-bats, it looks like an overhead shot of a billiards table.Where we found it somewhat compelling was how it showed the way Dodgers starter Zach Greinke worked the zone during his outing in Game 1 of the NL Championship Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Joe Burrow willing to fight for NFL success, LSU coach Ed Orgeron says

first_imgJoe Burrow will fare better than other first overall picks because he “hasn’t had a silver spoon in his mouth,” according to his coach at LSU.Ed Orgeron believes Burrow, who won the Heisman Trophy and led LSU to a national championship in 2019, is capable of handling the pressure and intense scrutiny that comes with being taken at the top of the NFL Draft. The Cincinnati Bengals are expected to pick him first overall on Thursday. “The way he worked every day, the way he earned the right to be the starting quarterback at LSU,” Orgeron said. “The way he got better, the way he captured the football team, the way he led.”His work ethic, attitude and smarts will [translate to the NFL and] make him a great player.”The last quarterback to be taken No. 1 overall and win a Super Bowl was Eli Manning, who was the first pick in 2004. He famously did not play for the team that picked him, though. He was selected by the San Diego Chargers, who dealt him to the New York Giants for a package led by No. 4 pick Philip Rivers and Shawne Merriman, taken 12th that year by San Diego. Manning led Big Blue to two Lombardi Trophies. BENDER: Why Burrow’s connection to Ohio matters more than everBurrow had to fight for a role as a college starter after being unable to make a breakthrough with Ohio State. He took time to progress once he had transferred to LSU.”You know, Joe didn’t play in three years, and he came here and he earned the respect of the football team,” Orgeron said to ESPN. “Joe wasn’t the Heisman Trophy winner when he got here. He developed, he got better, he kept his mouth shut. “Obviously we all heard the stories [of other No. 1 picks] going to this team or that team, they haven’t had a good record or whatever. “I think that Joe has not had a silver spoon in his mouth all his life. I think Joe has had to fight all his life. “And I think if he does have to fight — and it may be Cincinnati — he’s willing to fight for that. And he’s willing to build a team. And he’s willing to go through adversity if he has to.”Nothing was promised to him here [at LSU]. He came here with faith and built a championship team. And I don’t see why he couldn’t do it at Cincinnati.”— LSU Football (@LSUfootball) April 20, 2020Orgeron was asked why he was so certain Burrow — who had 60 touchdowns to just six interceptions as he threw for 5,671 yards in an unbelievable 2019 campaign — would thrive at the NFL level.last_img read more

Ronaldinho: “I didn’t change the history of Barcelona”

first_imgRonaldo de Assis Moreira ‘Ronaldinho’, the striker who gave impetus to the Barcelona of Frank Rijkaard and Joan Laporta, says it is “a pride” to hear that Barça’s history changed, but does not agree: “It was not me, it was a group of players who were going through a great moment. ” In an interview published in the January issue of the magazine ‘Panenka’, Ronaldinho recalls that in Barcelona “everything was very nice” from day one, from the first game. “It was more than special,” he said. He said that it is not only in Barcelona where he has been happy, but that he has generally been “playing football”. As for Leo Messi, Ronaldinho recalls that when he arrived at Barça “there was already talk of a child” who stood out among the little ones. “Then we were friends, we started playing together and we got along very well. He came to be different from everyone else, and we talked with Rijkaard to come and train with usIt was all very fast. I was lucky to give him the pass of his first goal. Over time, it is very nice to see someone who starts and then conquers the world so close, “he recalls. Ronaldinho comments that Messi did not leave him any particular teaching. “We were always very friends, we learned things from day to day, he taught me Spanish and I Portuguese, but with the ball we understood each other perfectly. I would stay with how calm he is. That is something I love about him, I never know he gets in trouble, he is always with his family and the closest ones, “he says. Asked about what quality Messi could stay with Ronaldinho if he could, the Brazilian says: “Leo has it all, he doesn’t need anything from me.” He has such a good memory of his past in Barcelona, ​​that it is “impossible” to keep one. “From the first game it was all joy, there are many memories. I think I have arrived with thousands of people waiting for me at the stadium, to be received is how to get home,” he admits. He has praise for Frank Rijkaard, his coach at Barça. “He is a great coach, a very quiet guy, the best I have worked with. He knew everything because he played at the best level, and that made things very easy for us. Everything he asked us he had already lived before that spoke to us in a very simple and direct way, “he insists. Ronaldinho comments that the Dutchman gave him “a lot of freedom” to do his football, despite the tactical demands.“After all, when we didn’t have the ball, we also had to fulfill our obligations. But when we did, it made me feel completely free,” he insisted. That is why he has no doubt in admitting that Barça football is the one that best fit his playing style, because “having the ball” is a characteristic of Barça’s game. “Everything that is done is with a ball. When you train in this way, then everything goes well.” Then he went through Milan, a “wonderful” team with Kaka, Pirlo, Beckham, Seedorf, Ibra, Thiago Silva, Gattuso, Maldini. “It was like arriving at a selection of the best in the world, such as the Madrid of the Galactic,” he argues. And he finished his career in Brazil, where he won the Libertadores with Atlético Mineiro. “It was very nice that return to my country. I really wanted to because I had left very young and I needed to win the Libertadores and be able to participate in other competitions.

Jordan, Edghill clash over $200M ‘malicious prosecution’ lawsuit

first_imgFinance Minister Winston Jordan and Opposition Member of Parliament (MP) Juan Edghill have clashed over the $200 million lawsuit that Jordan has filed for the “Malicious Prosecution of the Offence of Misconduct in Public Office,” and for other damages.Edghill, in responding to a request for comment in regard to the recent lawsuit filed against him by Winston Jordan, has maintained that the $200 million lawsuit does not have any bearing, and he will not be intimidated, nor is he fearful of the action.“It is clear that the Government is running out of headlines and they badly needed a distraction over the weekend; so Edghill became the target,” he told media operatives at the sidelines of Monday’s sitting at the National Assembly. Edghill also said he is yet to be served with the lawsuit.The Opposition MP has argued that he cannot be sued for malicious persecution on the basis of filing a private criminal charge against Jordan.Minister Jordan has responded to Edghill’s comments by stating that the courts would decide whether or not the case is just about grabbing newspaper headlines.“I don’t make joke with my integrity at all! So he (Edghill) could spin how much he wants now, he will have to spin in court eventually,” Jordan added.Responding to Edghill’s statements that there is no basis for the lawsuit, Minister Jordan said a determination will be made by the court in that respect. He said, “It’s for the court to decide…This is not a matter for the court of public opinion, but (for) a judicial court.”On April 23, Edghill initiated private criminal charges against Minister Jordan and Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson jointly, as well as against Public Service Minister Dr Rupert Roopnaraine, alleging a breach of the Procurement Act in relation to the expenditure of $906 million in public funds to a private company, Homestretch Development Inc, for construction of the controversial D’Urban Park Project, which has been a contentious issue for some time now.Jordan and Patterson were jointly charged with misconduct and abuse of public trust for having allegedly authorised the payment; while Dr Roopnaraine, who was a director of the company, was charged with alleged misconduct and the abuse of public trust for having received, in his capacity as director, the $906 million in public funds while serving as minister.However, those charges were subsequently discontinued by the DDP, Shalimar Ali-Hack, who said that in the interest of good governance, such allegations against serving ministers ought first to have been reported to the Guyana Police Force for an investigation to be launched and the advice of the DPP sought.Despite the charges being dismissed, Jordan, in his application to the court, said the private criminal charge filed by the Opposition Parliamentarian was intended to embarrass, humiliate, and cause him to suffer public odium and contempt.The Finance Minister explained in his application that the $906 million was approved by the National Assembly, and thereafter made available to the Public Infrastructure Ministry from the Consolidated Fund.He noted that, as a Member of Parliament, Edghill could not honestly believe that he acted without reasonable excuse or justification in respect of issuing a warrant to effect disbursements and allocation of the money to the Public Infrastructure Ministry.“…the respondent was therefore aware, or ought to have been reasonably aware, that the sum of $906,000,000… was approved by the National Assembly“And as Minister of Finance, I was obligated by law to issue the necessary warrant to ensure that the said approved sum of money was available to the Ministry of Public Infrastructure; and, as such, there could be no honest belief that I willfully misconducted myself, as alleged by the respondent,” Jordan argued.Jordan pointed out that as Finance Minister he did not, and could not, have paid or authorise the payment of the $906 million to Homestretch Development Inc., as alleged by Opposition Parliamentarian.“…notwithstanding that the Respondent was… a former Minister of Finance within the Ministry of Finance…even an ordinary prudent and cautious citizen placed as a Complainant in the said Criminal Proceedings of Misconduct in Public Office against me could not have reasonably concluded that I was guilty of the offence, or even draw an inference that I was guilty of the offence of Misconduct in Public Office as alleged…,” Jordan stated.Those private charges that Edghill had initiated were the second set of charges filed by the Opposition, they were thrown out by the DPP, citing the same reasons.Two days before dismissing the charges against Ministers Jordan and Patterson, the DPP had also discontinued charges against Government Ministers Volda Lawrence and George Norton.Those charges were previously filed over the sole-sourcing of over $600 million in drugs and other pharmaceuticals for the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, and the rental of a house in Sussex Street, Albouystown, Georgetown to be utilised as a drug bond at a cost of $12M monthly respectively.last_img read more

New Year brings no assurances of owed payments – Puran

first_imgGarbage collectors deadlockThe decision of Central Government to bail out City Hall from debts owed to two main solid waste collectors in the new year remains unfulfilled and there has been no contact between the two parties on the way forward.The two major solid waste collectorsSpeaking with Guyana Times on Wednesday, General Manager of Puran Brother’s Disposal Services, Khalesh Puran explained that no payments were made on behalf of the Government for services to resume.“There is still no payment from them or any date that these payments will be made,” said Puran.Without a date, collectors are questioning if they will be paid within the first week of January as was promised. Business Development Supervisor of Cevon Waste Management, Morris Archer had informed this media outlet that this was the assurance given.At that time, high hopes were beaming as expectations suggested that they would receive owed payments.On November 25, 2018, the collectors withdrew their services after examining the feasibility of operating without payments and being owed for over six months. Immediately after, services were provided by five agencies; namely Granderson, Trash Tech, Tri Star, C&S Services and Garbage Eaters.By the first week in December, Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan met with the collectors and officials of City Hall, where it was declared that Central Government would stand the outstanding $160 million by the ending of 2018.“It yielded what we believe to be credible assurances that settlement of the outstanding debt will commence very shortly. Our understanding is that the first payment will be made before the end of 2018. We have, without prejudice, accepted those assurances,” the service providers jointly announced.Meanwhile, buildups of waste across business enterprises and residential communities proved that the contractors were essential and further, that the smaller contractors were unable to service the entire city.For this, the contractor proposed to resume operations immediately with confirmation from the M&CC. This did not materialise to which they issued another statement, affirming that services would not be provided without credible assurances.“Timely payment under the terms of our contract with the Georgetown City Council is a fundamental issue.  We cannot, we submit, be expected to provide services without reasonable assurances of timely payment. Where there is slippage we are prepared, as we have, over time, to exercise some measure of understanding to an extent that is reasonable.”last_img read more

first_imgBY CATHAL MacSUIBHNE: So let’s be honest, how many of us went to the Bogside today with quite a bit of doubt in the back of our minds? All we’ve read of late is of a Donegal team in crisis and conversely a Derry team on the up and ready to have a real tilt at an Ulster title. This match represented as big a test as Donegal have faced in the McGuinness era but yet again when it mattered, when Championship football was put in front of his men, they delivered.A triumph of management skill and coaching was what we saw in Celtic Park as McGuinness carefully constructed a match winning performance with astute switches, well-timed substitutions and above all an efficient use of resources. He took a calculated risk in opting to start with a more inexperienced fifteen before adapting to a more settled side in the second half but it proved to be a masterstroke.Midfield was always going to be the key sector – with Rory Kavanagh suspended and Neil Gallagher struggling for full fitness, whoever came up against the Derry powerhouses of Patsy Bradley and Fergal Doherty were going to have their work cut out. Christy Toye and Odhran MacNiallais were initially assigned the centrefield roles, with plenty of support being provided by the roaming Michael Murphy in the first half. The primary difference in actual play between league and championship is in the physical stakes and this was illustrated early on – Paddy McGrath, Murphy and Leo McLoone all put in shuddering hits on their opponents during the first half, with McLoone’s particularly vital as he stopped a Derry attack from getting in behind the Donegal cover. Thankfully, even with the introduction of the black card and the fear that it would bring a decline in this facet of the game, there was some good old-fashioned shoulders going in from both sides today and the game was better for it.McGrath was a late inclusion and despite the lack of any game-time for his county this year he seamlessly slotted into his customary corner back position and played a blinder. A feature of the Donegal defenders today, led by the Ardara man, was in how well they shepherded on-coming attackers wide and away from goal. Instead of putting in a tackle and risk giving away the free they forced the Oakleaf forwards out to the wings, thus making them turn back for help and recycle possession.It was tight and tense in the early stages and Donegal were holding their own. Derry kicked on in the second quarter and despite seeing the influential Doherty go off injured they put some daylight between the teams but the visitors managed to stay within striking distance at the break, only two points back.Jim was very clever in his use of the Creeslough pairing of Toye and Martin McElhinney; the former was Donegal’s most dangerous player in the first half and he had been instructed to empty the tank in that opening period. At the short whistle, McElhinney took up the baton and, buzzing with energy and running, he produced a carbon copy all action cameo, capping it off with a lung bursting score late in the game. The changes at the break, which also included the introduction of Neil Gallagher, allowed Michael to spend more time in front of the Derry goal and the Maestro was immense. Derry full-back Chrissy McKaigue had a wonderful league campaign and the battle between these two was well flagged before the game – it was a battle that Murphy won hands down. Interestingly alongside McKaigue was Gareth McKinless, who carried out an excellent man marking job on Murphy in the Ulster club final last December but on today’s form nobody could have held the big man. The ball going into him from out the field had a lot to do with his performance so credit must go to the likes of Anthony Thompson and Frank McGlynn for finding their captain so often.In the early part of the second half, just as they did so often during their All-Ireland run, Donegal blitzed their opponents and Murphy had his fingerprints over all of the scores during this period. His gorgeous dummy to fool McKaigue allowed him to launch a skyscraper to split Thomas Mallon’s posts while he was also involved in Leo McLoone’s goal when he set McGlynn on his way into enemy territory.He saved his best until a few minutes later when Donegal were awarded a line ball on the 45’, close to where the Donegal management team were standing. It was a lovely moment for supporters on that side of the pitch as we got a close up view of the action as McGuinness walked up to his commander and uttered the words ‘put it over the bar’; mere mortals wouldn’t dream of attempting such an audacious effort but Michael did as he was asked and dispatched a monster of a point, registering as good a score as you’re ever likely to see.Leo’s goal was always going to be crucial in such a close encounter but just as critical was what transpired in front of the Donegal goal moments later. A flowing move up the field ended with wing back Kevin Johnston one on one with Paul Durcan but just as he pulled the trigger Neil McGee appeared out of nowhere to produce a fantastic block and keep his side’s hard fought lead intact.McGee’s clubmate MacNiallais put in an accomplished performance around the middle third and can be delighted with his championship debut. Likewise Darach O’Connor, who used his pace to great effect to open his side’s scoring account and he was a real danger throughout his time on the field. As is usually the case, Donegal sat on their lead somewhat and made things a bit more nerve-wracking for the supporters than maybe it needed to be, as the home side ate into the lead bit by bit. Durcan’s role was crucial though and when he really needed to, he was able to find his men with his pinpoint kick outs; one miscue apart Papa provided the platform for his team all day and all the different strategies that were worked on during the league came to fruition today.In the end it was the goal that separated the teams and the man who scored it, McLoone, walked away with the RTE man of the match gong. His finish for the goal was sublime and it shows the worth of a player being comfortable on both feet. McLoone’s last big goal for Donegal came in the 2012 Ulster Final, when he finished wonderfully with his right foot past Down’s Brendan McVeigh – he also got the insurance point today off his left but we’ve seen on numerous occasions that either foot is fine for the Glenties man.So in spite of all the prophets of doom that have spoken in the build up to the game (Colm O’Rourke was especially dismissive in his newspaper column this morning), it seems as though reports of our demise have been greatly exaggerated. The aftermath of the League final and the supposed clues it offered on the state of the team needed to be looked at in a bit of context. Seven weeks prior to that final, Donegal dismantled Monaghan in O’Donnell Park and on that evening they sat at the summit of the league table with maximum points. At that stage McGuinness’ men needed four points from the remaining eight to ensure promotion. One eye was already on May 25th at that point in time but after a big victory against one of the better sides in the division, their gaze completely switched to championship and preparing for the challenge of Derry.With all the talk of the supposed shallowness of the Donegal panel, the team now goes into an Ulster semi-final on the back of an outstanding display and with Rory Kavanagh, David Walsh, Big Neil and Martin McElhinney trying to force their way into the starting line-up. That competition will be very healthy for the squad and management as they face into their last four clash with either Fermanagh or Antrim. Regardless of who they play, Donegal will be overwhelming favourites but they have to go about their business in the right way and with lads battling for starting spots, that should be a given. May 25th is done and dusted, now it’s all about June 22nd.

Celtic honour former homeplace of legend Patsy Gallacher in Ramelton

first_imgLisbon Lion John Clark was in Ramelton this morning to honour the memory of Celtic legend Patsy Gallacher.Clark, the sweeper on the Hoops’ side of 1967 that beat Inter Milan in the European Cup final, told of his honour to represent the club as he laid a wreath at the former homeplace of ‘The Mighty Atom’.A wreath was also laid at the nearby Gallagher Park, where Clark addressed a large crowd of Celtic supporters, who had gathered in the hope of a visit from Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, following his appearance at a function last night in the Silver Tassie Hotel. Though Rodgers was unavailable for the event, Clark, who brought with him the Scottish Cup, adorned in Celtic’s green and white ribbons stood in.Having played 318 times for Celtic – including 140 consecutive games from 1965 to 1967 – Clark is an icon at Parched.“I played on one of the best teams ever,” Clark said.“It’s a great testament that after 50 years you’re still recognised. We really appreciate that.” Frank McGuire from the Celtic Graves Society said: “Patsy summed up everything that was great about Celtic with his attacking flair, never-say-die attitude and his ability to come up with the unexpected.”Sinn Féin Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn spoke of the deep affinity between Celtic and Donegal, while the drones of Raphoe piper Christy Murray kept the crowd entertained.Ramelton’s number 1 Celtic supporter Sonny Gallagher was proud as punch as he presented Clark with a memento of the occasion.Although now unable to make the voyage to see his beloved Hoops in the flesh, Sonny has kept up his tradition of buying a season ticket for Celtic Park.McGuire spoke of the connect between Donegal and Celtic, noting how the society, in 2013, marked the Frosses relating place of Joseph Francis McGroary, who had served on Celtic’s first-ever committee. He also touched on the links that go back to Alex Collins, from Burt, who played for Celtic in 1888 and Charlie McElhinney, from Manor, who made his debut in 1893.McGuire said: “A strong part of Celtic’s identity is the connection with Ireland and Donegal in particular.“The Celtic Graves Society are deeply proud of our heritage.“The connection between Celtic and Donegal was there right form the start. The link is as strong today as it was at our club’s birth over 130 years ago.” Celtic honour former homeplace of legend Patsy Gallacher in Ramelton was last modified: March 26th, 2018 by Chris McNultyShare 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:Brendan RodgersCelticJohn ClarkLisbon LionsPatsy GallacherRameltonlast_img read more

first_imgChelsea face competition from Arsenal for the signing of Newcastle star Hatem Ben Arfa, the Daily Mirror say.The Magpies winger has attracted interest from Chelsea for some time, but it is suggested that Arsenal are now strong contenders to sign him.It is also claimed that Ben Arfa fears he would not play regularly if he were to move to Stamford Bridge.The Daily Express say Chelsea are to increase their bid for Wigan’s Victor Moses to £5.5m.The Sun suggest Wigan are prepared to double Moses’ wages in order to keep him.Meanwhile, QPR are in talks with Danny Murphy but face a fight with Blackburn for his signature, according to the Mirror.The veteran midfielder, whose Fulham contract expires this summer, played under R’s boss Mark Hughes when the Welshman was manager at Craven Cottage.It is claimed that Murphy has spoken to relegated Rovers about joining them on a two-year deal but will move to Rangers if they match the Championship side’s terms.The Daily Mail report that Fulham have offered £1.6m for Vitesse Arnhem left-back Alexander Buttner, have also shown interest in Sevilla’s Argentine centre-back Federico Fazio and remain keen on Huddersfield’s Jordan Rhodes.And the Express say Fulham have turned down a £1m bid for teenager Kerim Frei from Turkish club Galatasaray, who are now planning to make a £2m offer. Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

AmaZulu World to boost tourism

first_imgZulu king Goodwill Zwelithini and Ruwaaddevelopers at the launch of AmaZulu Worldin Dubai. (Image: The Mercury)Janine ErasmusDubai-based developer Ruwaad, a member of the Dubai 9 group of companies, has announced plans to build a mega-scale themed entertainment development on the north coast of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN). Known as AmaZulu World, the development will be the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in Africa, according to the company.Making the announcement at the Cityscape 2008 real estate exhibition in Dubai in early October 2008, Ruwaad described the proposed R44-billion ($5-billion) project as a master-planned, uniquely African destination development which will cover about 16 500ha of land.Ruwaad chair Hanif Merchant said the company was very proud to be leading the development and bringing a world-class destination experience to African investors, residents and tourists alike.“AmaZulu World will have a perfect blend of development zones,” said Ruwaad group CEO Hayan Merchant, describing key elements of the development. In typical larger-than-life Dubai style, they include Africa’s first world-class internationally branded entertainment theme park, as well as the continent’s largest shopping destination, most comprehensive and advanced sports village development, largest lifestyle community and first dedicated education and health village.In addition, the development will have its very own Statue of Liberty in the form of a 106m-tall figure of iconic Zulu king Shaka, and will be a key cultural element of the development.The sports village will offer cricket, rugby and tennis facilities and, says Merchant, will be an ideal place for English and European teams to practice during their off-season.AmaZulu World is expected to become one of Africa’s premier destinations, an expectation supported by the forthcoming Fifa World Cup which South Africa hosts in 2010, and the corresponding investment in infrastructure upgrade and increase in foreign investment in telecommunications- and tourism-related projects.These factors, say Ruwaad, and others such as its excellent year-round climate and outstanding natural beauty, made the country a natural choice for the project. However the company is also impressed by political and economic developments in recent years in South Africa which are pushing it to the forefront of emerging world markets.A royal seal of approvalThe project has received endorsement from KZN premier Sibusiso Ndebele and Zulu king Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu, both of whom were on hand at the announcement in Dubai. “Ruwaad has demonstrated to our community its firm commitment to developing a destination that fits with our area’s unique natural, cultural and historical character,” said Zwelithini.“With confidence, the local community is hugely excited to welcome Ruwaad to our province, and we look forward to the future employment, and economic growth that will contribute to the sustainability of our area; for the inhabitants of today and those for generations to come.”The project is expected to create more than 200 000 new jobs and increase regional tourism by around 40%, according to initial research conducted by local consultancy Pam Golding Hospitality. AmaZulu World will be built in phases over 25 years, with completion of the first phase planned for 2012 to 2014.However, there are a few displeased local community members who are opposing the development as they do not wish to be relocated. The eMacambi clan, owners of some of the land where development will take place, say they will take the matter to court if necessary. A spokesman for Ndebele has said that government and the developers will consult with everyone involved and that all the required legal routes will be followed.A uniquely African destinationSituated just north of the Thukela River, which originates in the Drakensberg Mountains and meanders through the KZN Midlands before flowing into the Indian Ocean, AmaZulu World will straddle both sides of the national N2 highway, which connects the province’s capital Durban with Richards Bay and other developing areas in northern KZN.It will also lie conveniently close to the new R8.85-billion ($1-billion) King Shaka International Airport, currently under construction at La Mercy, 30km north of Durban. The new airport will replace Durban’s existing international airport and is expected to be operational by 2010.The eco-friendly tourist destination will be designed to have a minimal impact on the area’s natural surroundings and will incorporate entertainment, sport, leisure, hotel and residential destinations, boosting economic growth in the region.In addition to the theme park, shopping centre and sports village, tourists can expect to enjoy a wide range of activities and facilities, including hotels, resorts and spas, an agricultural village, and a marina. The development will also feature residential homes and offices as well as six golf courses, an equestrian estate, a nature reserve for those who seek more restful forms of leisure, and 22km of beachfront. Education, community, medical, emergency and security facilities will be available.AmaZulu World’s vision, according to Ruwaad, is to be African in identity and world-class in standing, in order to attract visitors and residents from around the world to the region.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Reinardt races to Cycle Challenge victory

first_imgThose overseas wins include the overall title in the Tour de Bretagne, the Ronde van Overijssel, the Circuit de Wallonie and the Ronde van Zeeland, as well as the points’ title in the Tour of Portugal. Little wonder then that he has been signed up by an overseas team. Laws, who recently signed with Momentum Toyota, South Africa’s leading women’s professional road race team, took the fight to the rest of the field, breaking away with 50 kilometres to go, and going on to win by over five minutes in a time of two hours, 39 minutes and 34 seconds. Excellent resultsThe MTN Qhubeka star’s results in 2012 have included winning the national time trial title, becoming only the second rider after his team-mate Arran Brown to win the Cycle Challenge and Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour in the same year, and 14 overseas victories. Fellow Brit, Catherine Williamson of team bizhub FCF claimed second place, with South African time trial champion, Cherise Stander (Momentum Toyota), the 2010 Cycle Challenge winner in third place in her last competitive road race for the foreseeable future. From next year she will follow in the footsteps of her husband, Burry, and concentrate on mountain biking. Women’s raceBritish road racing champion Sharon Laws, who was a controversial omission from the British team for the London Olympics, convincingly ended Ashley Moolman-Pasio’s bid to become the first rider to win the Argus, the South African Road Championship, the African Continental Championship and the Cycle Challenge in the same year. The Cycle Challenge was, however, the last race for Janse van Rensburg with MTN Qhubeka. After an excellent season, he has signed a two-year contract with the Netherlands-based Team Argos-Shimano. Second place went to Johann Rabie of Team Bonitas, two second behind the winner, with defending champion Arran Brown of MTN Qhubeka in third a further six seconds off the pace. Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio had said she was tired when she returned from the African Continental Cycling Championships on Burkina Faso on Wednesday, but she nonetheless managed fourth place ahead of Joanna van de Winkel, giving Momentum Toyota four of the top five finishers. ‘It was great to win’“It was great to win today for my new team. We went into the race with no chosen leader, but decided to make the pace as hard as possible. I was just fortunate that my move stuck and I was the one that could win today,” Laws said afterwards. It was an emotional victory for the 23-year-old, who crossed the finishing line in two hours, 10 minutes, and 19 seconds; he rode the race in memory of his father, who had passed away two weeks before the event. Over 25 000 riders took to the roads of Johannesburg on Sunday, with Reinardt Janse van Rensburg capturing the men’s title in the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge and Sharon Laws becoming the first non-South African to win the women’s race. 20 November 2012 “Although I had a long solo ride, I must thank my teammates for their role in my win. It was most certainly very much a team success today.” “I’m not a great sprinter and breakaways suit me better. It wasn’t planned that I’d go so far out though, but when I realised I was making good progress over the hills and into a rather disconcerting headwind, I just kept at it.

Manchester derby no PL title decider – Owen

first_imgManchester United v Manchester City Manchester derby won’t decide Premier League title – Owen Tom Webber Last updated 1 year ago 23:07 12/7/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(2) pep guardiola jose mourinho - cropped Getty Images Manchester United v Manchester City Premier League Manchester United Manchester City Although Man City can enhance their lead at the top even further, the ex-England star feels there will be enough time for others to catch up Manchester City can go 11 points clear at the Premier League summit by beating arch-rivals Manchester United on Sunday, but Michael Owen does not believe such a result would end the title race.Pep Guardiola’s side have been in phenomenal form in 2017-18 and head into the Manchester derby at Old Trafford as the top flight’s only unbeaten side.City took an early advantage at the summit last season before Chelsea surged to the title, and former United forward Owen does not think they will be able to ease off should they open a sizeable lead. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player “I think City were quite a few points ahead last season and didn’t go on to win it and actually Chelsea went on to win it at an absolute breeze, so definitely nothing is going to be decided so soon,” Owen told Omnisport, speaking courtesy of Hublot.”City at the moment look brilliant. They score a lot of goals and look sterner at the back. Manchester United [have made] a massive step forward from last season as well.”I thought last season even though they had a couple of trophies in the bag and qualification for the Champions League, I still watched them thinking there was more in the tank and I think this season they’ve looked a lot better.Kevin De Bruyne Manchester City“Obviously, they’ve been strengthened mainly down the spine of the team – [Nemanja] Matic has been a brilliant signing.”I think it will be a huge game but I don’t think it will be a decider so soon in the season.”Owen made his mark on the derby with a 96th-minute winner as United triumphed 4-3 in a memorable clash at Old Trafford in September 2009.That victory came soon after City’s takeover by Sheikh Mansour, a factor that made the triumph even sweeter for the former striker.Marcus Rashford, Man Utd“I was lucky enough to play in quite a few derbies in my career but the Manchester derby was one of those that I gained a lot of satisfaction, obviously from scoring that goal in the 96th minute or whatever it was,” said Owen.”At the time, I think Manchester City were beginning to make noises, they’d been taken over and a lot of money spent.”I think Sir Alex Ferguson and all the fans were probably thinking they’ve always been in Manchester United’s shadows – or they have certainly for a long, long time – and probably starting to get a little bit nervous that a lot of money was getting spent down the road.”So I think all the lead up to that game in particular was quite funny. Carlos Tevez had just moved across to the blue half of the city and there was all that ‘Welcome to Manchester’ signage and Ferguson and [Mark] Hughes having a bit of a ding-dong in the press.”It just built into a great game, a big game that everyone was desperate to win and of course the game matched it and to score in the last minute was certainly a rush of adrenaline.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

USA: WSF Is One Step Closer to LNG Propulsion

first_imgzoom Washington State Ferries is another step closer to significantly reducing fuel costs and transportation emissions by switching a class of vessels from diesel fuel to liquefied natural gas.After more than three years of study, WSF has a plan to safely convert six Issaquah Class vessels to run on cleaner-burning LNG. The proposal was officially submitted to the U.S. Coast Guard on Nov. 18 in a formal letter of intent (LOI) and waterways suitability assessment (WSA). The submission of the LOI and WSA marks the official starting point of the Coast Guard’s review process. WSF expects the Coast Guard to issue a finding regarding the LNG conversion proposal in 2014.“Fuel is WSF’s fastest growing operating expense,” said David Moseley, assistant secretary for the Washington State Department of Transportation, Ferries Division. “Replacing diesel with LNG on the Issaquah Class ferries could result in very substantial savings on fuel over the remaining 30 years of their service life. This will also mean a cleaner, more efficient future for our fleet by significantly decreasing emissions.”The average Issaquah Class vessel carries up to 124 cars and 1,200 passengers, serving on some of the state’s busiest ferry routes. Converting the fuel systems from ultra-low sulfur diesel to LNG would significantly reduce emissions according to WSDOT’s Air Emissions Model, including: 89 percent reduction in particulate matter61 percent reduction in nitrous oxide28 percent reduction in carbon dioxide59 percent reduction in sulfur dioxideFor the proposed LNG conversions, WSF would install main propulsion engines to use natural gas and retrofit LNG fuel tanks on the top decks of the six vessels. The proposal calls for a phased approach for conversions to avoid schedule changes or delays. Once vessels are converted and back in service, they would begin a routine overnight, out-of-service refueling process similar to current diesel refueling.Since 2010, WSF has been studying the benefits of alternative fuels and evaluating the feasibility and safety of using LNG to fuel its vessels. The process included the U.S. Coast Guard, multiple agencies at the state and local level, private industry organizations, the Washington State Joint Transportation Committee and consultants including Cedar River Group and Det Norske Veritas, the world’s leading authority on LNG-fueled passenger ferries.WSF concluded its study process by issuing the final waterways suitability assessment, which includes a safety and security assessment and a risk-management plan. The study found that the LNG proposal is inherently safe with risks as low as reasonably practicable.Use of LNG to power passenger ferries has been proven technically and operationally feasible worldwide for more than a decade, with Norway operating LNG-fueled passenger vessels since 2000. LNG is also fast becoming an efficient alternative fuel for buses and semi-trucks. 此页面无法正确加载 Google 地图。您是否拥有此网站?确定 My location Print  Close WSDOT, November 22, 2013last_img read more

NASA engineers install legs wheels on Mars 2020 rover

first_imgLos Angeles: NASA engineers have recently installed the legs and wheels, known as the mobility suspension on the Mars 2020 rover, according to a latest release of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). More than a dozen “bunny suit”-clad engineers integrated the rover’s legs and wheels on June 13 in the clean room of the Spacecraft Assembly Facility at JPL, marking another milestone in the rover’s building, Xinhua news agency reported on Saturday. Also Read – Spotify rolls out Siri support, new Apple TV app Adding to the complexity of the engineering team’s integration effort was the “rocker-bogie” suspension system, which keeps the rover body balanced, enabling it to “rock” up or down, depending on the various positions of the six wheels, according to JPL. Measuring 52.5 centimeters in diameter and machined with traction-providing cleats, or grousers, the current wheels are engineering models that will be replaced with flight models next year, JPL said. Every wheel has its own motor. The two front and two rear wheels also have individual steering motors that enable the vehicle to turn a full 360 degrees in place. Mars 2020 will launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida in July 2020. It is scheduled to land at Jezero Crater on February 18, 2021.last_img read more

Ukraine foreign minister warns G7 of Russian threats to western democracy

first_imgTORONTO – Russia is using Ukraine as a test ground for its information war against Western democracy, Ukraine’s foreign minister told G7 ministers meeting here on Sunday.Foreign Affairs Minister Chystia Freeland wants the disruptive influence of Russia on the West to be a top agenda item, and she set the table — literally — for Ukrainian foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin to deliver that message to her G7 counterparts.Freeland invited Klimkin to be part of Sunday’s talks, hosting him and other ministers at her home for a traditional brunch that was prepared by her own children.“It was amazing how she organized it, in the sense of creating this friendly atmosphere of hospitality with ministers sitting around the table with her kids … what they had personally prepared,” Klimkin told The Canadian Press in an interview Sunday afternoon.Their conversation was decidedly less festive, with Klimkin pressing the G7 to make a strong, unified stand against what he described as Kremlin efforts to destabilize democracy through election interference and other cyber-meddling.He said the petri dish for that strategy remains his country, which Russia invaded in 2014, annexing Crimea and occupying its eastern Donbass region.“Fundamentally, Ukraine is perceived by many and also by Russia as a sort of test range for testing Russian nonconventional warfare — hybrid war,” Klimkin said.He called this part of a bigger war “against the democratic transatlantic community.” Supporting Ukraine, he said, should be seen “as a part of a bigger pattern.“Fighting along with Ukraine would give an immense asset to the whole democratic community in the sense of understanding Russian efforts to destabilize the western world.”Freeland views the clash of the forces of democracy and authoritarianism as a defining feature of our time, and she has singled out Russian President Vladimir Putin as a major disrupter.Klimkin said all G7 ministers are committed to protecting democratic institutions. That includes the Trump administration in the U.S., where former FBI director Robert Mueller is leading the special investigation of possible collusion between Russia and the campaign that brought Trump to power in 2016.Klimkin said he had a “great meeting” in Toronto on Saturday with U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan.“We have clear, consistent bipartisan support on (Capitol) Hill. We have such support from the administration.”Trump has nominated his CIA Director Mike Pompeo as his next secretary of state, but Pompeo isn’t in Toronto because he continues to face opposition to his confirmation.The G7 foreign ministers began meetings in Toronto on Sunday about the world’s many peace and security challenges, with the ongoing tensions with Russia and the North Korean nuclear crisis taking centre stageThe gathering comes days after North Korea pledged to suspend testing of its nuclear and long-range missiles and close its nuclear test site, and days ahead of this week’s historic summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.Trump is also working on his own landmark meeting with the North Korean leader in the coming weeks, after dispatching Pompeo on a secret mission to meet Kim two weeks ago to lay the groundwork.No date has been set, and there is uncertainty about what Trump might be able to accomplish.Trump’s envoy to Canada, Ambassador Kelly Craft, says her boss is leading international efforts to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons arsenal.“Concerning the upcoming meeting, President Trump is really carrying the water on the North Korea issue,” Craft said in a statement to The Canadian Press. “It’s something we’ve also been working closely with Canada on.”Freeland co-hosted an international meeting on North Korea in January with Trump’s recently fired secretary of state, Rex Tillerson.Freeland announced that she and the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs, Federica Mogherini, will co-host a meeting of women foreign ministers in Canada this September.Canada has made the advancement of gender equality a pervasive theme that cuts across all G7 discussions, and the foreign ministers’ meeting is no exception.Freeland invited about a half-dozen non-G7 foreign ministers also attending the summit to a separate Saturday night dinner.She said her male Japanese counterpart, Taro Kono, was the only man at Saturday’s dinner table. She noted that she and the other female ministers “are often in meetings where we are the only woman, and so Taro got to see a little bit what it was like.”Canada and Japan signed a military co-operation agreement on Saturday that will allow each other’s militaries to share equipment during joint exercises.Freeland and Kono also met last month in Tokyo, where they affirmed their commitment to keep economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea to end its nuclear program at this G7 meeting.Freeland will be joined Monday by Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, who will lead his G7 interior minister counterparts in talks on terrorism and cyber security.last_img read more

Stephen Fry Speaks About Mental Illness

first_imgSpeaking to an audience about his bipolar disorder and attempt to commit suicide last year, actor Stephen Fry had some commonsensical things to say.The president of Mind since 2011, a charity that provides information and support to those experiencing mental health problems, Fry is committed to openly discussing mental illness, including his own.“I am the victim of my own moods,” says Fry, “more than most people are perhaps, in as much as I have a condition which requires me to take medication so that I don’t get either too hyper or too depressed to the point of suicide.”Nevertheless, in his hotel room after a day of filming last year, Fry says he took very many pills and a lot of vodka, which caused his body to convulse so much that while unconscious he broke four ribs. It was thanks to his producer visiting his room that Fry was found and taken to hospital.“There is no ‘why’,” says Fry, “it’s not the right question. There’s no reason. If there were a reason for it, you could reason someone out of it, and you could tell them why they shouldn’t take their own life. My role, as I see it, is not to be shy about the morbidity and genuine nature of the likelihood of death amongst people with certain mood disorders.”Copyright ©2013Look to the Starslast_img read more

The Rams Wont Get As Much From LA As The Lakers And

The source of an NFL team’s fortune looks a lot different than what fills the coffers for MLB, NBA and NHL teams. While 83 percent of the average team’s revenue in those sports comes from sources other than national TV deals — sources largely tied up in local earnings such as gate receipts and regional sports networks (more on those later) — that figure is only 46 percent for the average NFL club. Thus, financially, it matters less where an NFL team is located, because the team is going to get billions anyway from national revenue-sharing arrangements.1The NFL’s total revenue from national TV rights is a sum of deals with five networks: CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN and the NFL Network, plus a contract with DirecTV. Disclosure: FiveThirtyEight is owned by ESPN.This flattening of large-market revenue happens in other ways across all pro sports, such as the shared revenue brought in by licensing and merchandise (hats, jerseys, pagan blood contracts with FanKings), which insidery estimates put at approximately $3 billion annually — another $87 million or so per year per team after the league takes its 10 percent cut — and which is shared equally among 31 NFL teams. (The Cowboys are the only team that has an individual licensing and merchandising deal, because of course they are.)Comparing the Rams’ situation to those of teams in the NBA, NHL and MLB, all of which have lucrative regional TV deals that the NFL can’t tap into, reveals how little the Rams gain in television money by moving to Los Angeles. Specifically, we can zoom in to the revenue from Los Angeles teams’ TV contracts to see how much money the Lakers, Dodgers, Angels, Clippers, Kings and Ducks are pulling in from regional contracts: After years of speculation over which NFL team would be the first to surrender to Hollywood’s siren call, the inevitable finally happened: The league’s owners voted this week to allow the Rams to move from St. Louis to Los Angeles. In his attempt to justify the move, Rams owner Stan Kroenke made a lot of claims about the St. Louis area. He believed, or at least said, his team would be “on the road to financial ruin” if it stayed in the Gateway City because of what he alleged were poor economic prospects for the metro area, a declining population and various other local factors. The kabuki was unconvincing.Kroenke’s arguments rang hollow for a number of reasons, but his silly obsession with the drawbacks of the St. Louis area holds a major logical flaw: The Rams play in the only major pro league where local revenue takes a backseat to the revenue generated by shared, national television contracts. Regional sports networks (RSNs) have been all the rage for a while now, and the profits teams haul in by selling their cable rights — or, better yet, starting their own team-operated channels — have fueled the ballooning revenues in other leagues. In LA alone, the Lakers inked an RSN deal worth an average of $200 million a year,2Hence the figure we list above, a 20-year average from their contract with Time Warner Cable. and the Dodgers dropped jaws when it was announced their RSN contract would net $334 million per year in revenue. Even the Clippers, who come in well behind the Lakers, recently turned down a $60 million per year local deal, presumably because they’re holding out for something more lucrative.If you’re keeping score at home, that’s 60 percent more TV dollars than the average NFL team rakes in annually. And since the NFL does its television business on a strictly national basis, the Rams can’t unleash the power of an RSN on the eyeballs of the nation’s second-biggest media market.Kroenke would of course argue that the financial benefit comes from attendance — St. Louis was dead last in the NFL this season, and has floated around the bottom three during this decade. But even then, it’s not as though the Rams were always a draw in LA, as the Los Angeles Times noted in a 1994 game story titled “Attendance Is Not Exactly Peachy,” as just 32,969 fans turned out for a 14-12 snoozer against the Cardinals. (This was the “announced” attendance, which is definitionally lower than the actual attendance. Anaheim Stadium’s football capacity was 69,008.) The Rams were last in the league in attendance in 1994, their last year in Los Angeles.So Kroenke gains little in the way of media money by uprooting the Rams, and the benefits to the gate are far from certain once we look to LA’s not-that-distant history as a football town. What then does he gain by fistfighting St. Louis and burning every bridge on his way out of Missouri? One way to make sense of this is to look away from league revenue or fan interest and shift our attention downward, to Stan Kroenke’s pockets. Holy Cross economics professor Victor Matheson told the International Business Times that economists generally expect the Rams’ valuation to rise by at least $500 million with the move to LA. read more

Sony demonstrates how to use its 133inch digital paper notepad

first_imgEarlier this week Sony unveiled a new digital paper prototype device with a couple of key differences over what we’re used to seeing in e-readers. The first is its size. Rather than the typical 6-inch displays such as the Kindle uses, Sony has gone with a 13.3-inch 1200 x 1600 A4 panel. The other key difference is the fact you can use a stylus to scribble notes on your e-books.All we had for the announcement a few days ago was a picture of the device, but Sony has now decided to show off what its digital paper notepad can do at a trade show. You can see it in action in the video below:What’s clear immediately is how light the notepad is in the hand. As you can see, most people are easily holding it in one hand. That’s due to the fact it doesn’t use glass for the display, just plastic. In fact, the display is the new E Ink Mobius panel, which has been created with the help of Sony who brought their mass production experience into the mix.Writing on the notepad looks like it could be a pleasant experience despite the clear delay before characters appear. The resolution of the screen also helps to keep the text looking very crisp and allows you a lot of space to write without having to constantly move to a new sheet of digital paper.Sony is carrying out a test release of the device at three universities in Japan soon, but has also promised a commercial release before the end of 2013. All that’s missing now is a price point. I’m really hoping Sony can come in lower than tablets, otherwise this digital notepad is going to be a hard sell.last_img read more

first_imgUne caspsule spatiale sovétique vendue à 2,8 millions de dollarsLa capsule soviétique Vostok 3KA-2 vient d’être vendue à New York pour 2,8 millions de dollars à un PDG russe.La capsule russe Vostok 3KA-2, mise aux enchères à New York par la maison Sotheby’s vient de trouver un acquéreur. Cette capsule avait été envoyée dans l’espace par l’URSS en mars 1961 avec à son bord un mannequin et un chien. Le lancement de l’appareil avait pour objectif de préparer le vol de Youri Gagarine, premier homme à être aller dans l’espace, un mois plus tard.Evgueni Iourtchenko, l’acheteur russe a dû débourser 2,8 millions de dollars pour finir par emporter l’enchère. Dans un communiqué, il a précisé qu’il comptait rapporter l’objet en Russie. Il explique que “cette capsule appartient à l’histoire du programme soviétique de conquête de l’espace. Son retour intact sur terre donna le feu vert pour le vol de Gagarine.

Atomtronic transistor and diode could advance quantum computing

first_img Can alkaline earth metals be used in quantum computing? ( — What if atoms could be used to perform the functions currently the province of electronic devices? The goal of atomtronics is to do just that by creating analogues to the common items found in electronic devices. Ron Pepino, a graduate student at JILA and the University of Colorado, believes that he and his colleagues have found a way to create the atomtronic versions of diode and transistor circuits. The work of Pepino, Cooper, Anderson and Holland is described in Physical Review Letters: “Atomtronic Circuits of Diodes and Transistors.” Citation: Atomtronic transistor and diode could advance quantum computing (2009, October 9) retrieved 18 August 2019 from “In our work, we create a one-to-one analogy between conventional electronic circuits and atoms trapped in optical lattices,” Pepino tells “In this analogy, the current carriers — the electrons — are replaced with neutral, ultracold atoms, the semiconductor material that the electrons traverse is replaced with an optical lattice, and the electric potential difference — which induces the flow of electrons around the circuit — is replaced by a chemical potential difference”“The dynamics of atoms in optical lattices, which are basically crystals of light, have been studied both theoretically and experimentally for many years now. We add to this field by theoretically demonstrating that the electronic properties of the diode and transistor can be observed in specifically tailored optical lattices,” Pepino continues.The team at JILA believes that it is possible to emulate the behavior of a semiconductor diode in these atomic systems. “We have predicted that you can take the optical lattice, manipulate its experimentally-tunable parameters in a specific way, and recover diode-like phenomena,” Pepino explains, “Our simulations show that this augmented optical lattice will allow atoms to flow across it from left to right, for example, but forbids the atoms to traverse the lattice going the other way. We have modeled this, and we think it might work.”Pepino and his peers have also modeled an atomtronic transistor. “All modern electronics contain transistors; they are the fundamental building blocks of electronics and computers. Naturally, we want an atomtronic version.” The transistor designed by Pepino and his colleagues exhibits on/off switching behavior, and acts as an amplifier. By configuring the optical lattice in a manner discussed in their article, they show that it is possible to recover the characteristics of the conventional electronic transistor in the atomic world. He points out that atomtronics probably won’t replace electronics. “Atoms are sluggish compared to electrons, and that means that you probably won’t see atomtronics replace current electronic devices. What atomtronics might be useful for is the field of quantum information.” Because electrons lose any possible initial quantum state as they bounce around through the energy dissipating semiconductor or metallic systems, they are ill-equipped for quantum computing. “In quantum computing, you store a quantum state on an object, perform operations on the object and then read out the final state. If the system is not coherent, the initial stored information is lost,” Pepino points out. “Atoms trapped in optical lattices have been considered extensively for specific quantum computing schemes due to their inherent energy conserving characteristics. The dynamics of our atomtronic devices would be coherent and potentially useful in quantum computing.” He also suggests that there is the possibility that atomtronics could be useful in obtaining sensitive measurements. At the very least, he concludes, “atomtronic systems provide a nice test of fundamental concepts in condensed matter physics.”While these ideas have been modeled, they have yet to be built. Pepino says that an effort is under way to set up experiments that could provide a proof of principle for the work being done at JILA and the University of Colorado by experimental collaborator and co-author Dana Anderson.More information: Pepino, et. al. “Atomtronic Circuits of Diodes and Transistors,” Physical Review Letters (2009).

Drivers protest against plying of illegal autos

first_imgKolkata: The drivers of Baguiati-Ultadanga auto rickshaw route suspended their service alleging that several autos are plying illegally on the same route. It has been alleged that the drivers of such auto-rickshaws behave badly with the passengers.According to the sources, the number legal autos on the Baguiati-Ultadanga route is around 350. But every day approximately 600 autos ply on the same route. The auto drivers with legal documents alleged that over 250 autos are plying without any valid papers. “As people do not know about these autos, they tend to blame all the auto drivers in case of extra fare or rude behaviour,” said an auto driver. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe auto drivers on Friday afternoon stopped their service protesting against the illegal auto drivers. They demanded strict action against the illegal autos plying on their mentioned regularly. Due to plying of illegal autos, the legal auto drivers’ earning have came down. In the evening, the number of autos that ply has become low compared to the number of passengers. Sources informed that several autos do not have any insurance as they are not authorised by the Regional Transport Authority (RTA). Thus, the passengers of those autos will not get any compensation if the auto meets with an accident.last_img read more

FireEye reports North Korean state sponsored hacking group APT38 is targeting financial

first_imgYesterday, FireEye revealed a new group of hackers named APT38, a financially motivated North Korean regime-backed group responsible for conducting destructive attacks against financial institutions, as well as for some of the world’s largest cyber heists. FireEye Inc. is a cybersecurity firm that provides products and services to protect against advanced persistent threats and spear phishing. Earlier this year, FireEye helped Facebook find suspicious accounts linked to Russia and Iran on its platform and also alerted Google of election influence operations linked to Iranian groups. Now FireEye cybersecurity researchers released a special report titled APT38: Un-usual Suspects, to expose the methods used by the APT38 group. In the report, they said,“Based on observed activity, we judge that APT38’s primary mission is targeting financial institutions and manipulating inter-bank financial systems to raise large sums of money for the North Korean regime.” The researchers also state that the group has attempted to steal more than $1.1 billion and were also responsible for some of the more high-profile attacks on financial institutions in the last few years.  Some of the publicly reported attempted heists attributable to APT38 include: Vietnam TP Bank in December 2015 Bangladesh Bank in February 2016 Far Eastern International Bank in Taiwan in October 2017 Bancomext in January 2018 Banco de Chile in May 2018 Sandra Joyce, FireEye’s vice president of global intelligence says, “The hallmark of this group is that it deploys destructive malware after stealing money from an organization, not only to cover its tracks, but [also]  in order to distract defenders, complicate the incident response process, and gain time to get out the door.” Some details of the APT38 targeting Since at least 2014, APT38 has conducted operations in more than 16 organizations in at least 11 countries. The total number of organizations targeted by APT38 may be even higher when considering the probable low incident reporting rate from affected organizations. The group is careful, calculated, and has demonstrated a desire to maintain access to a victim environment for as long as necessary to understand the network layout, required permissions, and system technologies to achieve its goals. On average, they have observed that APT38 remain within a victim network for approximately 155 days, with the longest time within a compromised environment believed to be almost two years. In just the publicly reported heists alone, APT38 has attempted to steal over $1.1 billion dollars from financial institutions. APT38 Attack Lifecycle FireEye researchers believe that APT38’s financial motivation, unique toolset, tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) observed during their carefully executed operations are distinct enough to be tracked separately from other North Korean cyber activity. The APT38 group overlaps characteristics with other operations, known as ‘Lazarus’ and the actor they call as TEMP.Hermit. On Tuesday, the U.S. government released details on malware it alleges Pyongyang’s computer operatives have used to fraudulently withdraw money from ATMs in various countries. The unmasking of APT38 comes weeks after the Justice Department announced charges against Park Jin Hyok, a North Korean computer programmer, in connection with the 2014 hack of Sony Pictures and the 2017 WannaCry ransomware attack. According to Jacqueline O’Leary, a senior threat intelligence analyst at FireEye, Park has likely contributed to both APT38 and TEMP.Hermit operations. However, the North Korean government has denied allegations that it sponsors such hacking.

Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by P Vaidyanathan Iyer | Updated: September 21 2016 3:47 pm A more meaningful exercise could be for the government to encourage larger public participation in Budget-making Top News The government’s plan to advance the Budget date to January instead of February-end helps it on a couple of counts The first: it obviates the administrative need of presenting a Vote On Account to allow for government spending in the first few months of the financial year India follows the April 1-March 31 financial year While the Budget is presented at the end of February it is passed by both the Houses of Parliament only by mid-May This makes it necessary for the finance ministry to get approved a Vote On Account by Parliament A VoA allows the government to draw funds from the Consolidated Fund of India for routine government expenditure till the Union Budget is approved by both the houses The second: it facilitates more planned spending by various ministries and departments in the government during the first quarter Government expenditure in the first quarter is generally lackadaisical In fact despite stringent guidelines on spending and reminders by the finance ministry many ministries and departments bunch their expenditure in the second half and more so in the last quarter of the financial year lending themselves to criticism of inefficient spending The advancing of the Budget date should however not be seen in isolation with the government also considering a change in the financial year A committee under former Chief Economic Advisor Shankar Acharya was set up on July 6 to examine the desirability and feasibility of having a new financial year It will examine the merits and demerits of various dates for the commencement of the financial year including the existing April 1-March 31 Two new financial year dates the committee may study are: one the calendar year January 1-December 31 that aligns India with most countries and global financial institutions such as IMF and the World Bank and two October-September because the government has a good idea of how the country’s principal monsoon season (South-West monsoon in June-September) has fared and its likely impact on agriculture The committee is required to submit its report before December 31 this year Meanwhile a Niti Aayog paper has noted that there is a need to change the financial year for better Budget planning and has noted that January-December is most widely followed across countries and by UN bodies and also by 70 per cent of the top 50 Fortune 500 companies So for the move to be much more than a mere statement of ‘change’ it must not only address the issue of immediate concern that is better expenditure planning but also take into account the possibility of a change in the financial year currently being studied by the Shankar Acharya committee A more meaningful exercise could be for the government to encourage larger public participation in Budget-making It can do so by placing the proposed expenditure plan for the forthcoming year in the public domain This will lend itself to wider discussion and debate ahead of the actual presentation of the Budget and perhaps influence a more efficient spending programme For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top
