Many of the banks reacted to political pressure to curb discretionary remuneration by hiking salaries in order to retain key staff. Share KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Maine passes sports betting bill

Maine has become the third state in New England to regulate sports betting after its legislature pushed a bill through the House and Senate in the last two days of the state’s regular session.Legislative Document 553, which moved rapidly through the legislature on Tuesday (June 18), was given final approval by each chamber yesterday (June 19), and will now pass to Governor Janet Mills to be signed into law.The one-line bill was filed by Senator Louis Lucchini in January this year, sitting with the legislature’s Veterans and Legal Affairs Committee while lawmakers developed a regulatory framework.Once this had been completed, the bill quickly moved through the Senate and House, aided by a suspension of rules to allow for two readings in a day, with only confirmatory votes required yesterday.LD553 opens up the market to all of the state’s bricks and mortar gaming venues, such as commercial racetracks, off-track betting facilities, and commercial and tribal casinos. It will also allow mobile operators to apply for licences without the need for a land-based partner in the state.Read the full story on iGB North America.

Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgThe SinnersSub-standardEngland coach Stuart Lancaster is in the doghouse with many England fans this week after their team fought  back from 16-3 down to lead by five points, only to let France in for a late, match-winning try.Among England’s leading lights in the clash at the Stade de France was scrum-half Danny Care, who was at his sniping best, setting up Mike Brown’s try with a swift break, causing the French all kinds of problems and even kicking a drop goal.Lancaster substituted Care for Lee Dickson with 19 minutes to go, when England were leading 21-16, and from there they lost their shape and went on to lose 26-24.Lancaster denied the substitution was pre-meditated and defended his decision, saying Care hadn’t had a lot of game time since the November Tests, although the scrum-half has actually played six times for Harlequins in that time.  Lancaster added: “We felt Lee Dickson would come on and bring energy and momentum to our game, and work defensively as well.”Unfortunately for the England boss, it didn’t work out that way. Floored: Esposito (14) is flat out as Cuthbert (left) celebratesNightmare startPoor Angelo Esposito. The 20-year-old Italy wing was playing his first Test and must have been hoping to make a steady start, at the very least.However, with just three minutes on the clock, Wales fly-half Rhys Priestland slotted a kick up the right wing, it took a wicked bounce and Esposito was left grasping at thin air as the ball wobbled past him and Alex Cuthbert pounced to touch down for the first try.In the cauldron of the Millennium Stadium, Esposito must have wanted the ground to swallow him up.Italy fought back to give Wales a run for their money, but Esposito knows his mistake presented his team-mates with an uphill battle they could have done without. Cup Chief: Steenson starred in the cup Club classThe RBS Six Nations is stealing most of the headlines at the moment but club rugby is still entertaining audiences and players are giving their all for their own local causes.Among this weekend’s club heroes was Northampton lock Samu Manoa, whose two tries gave the Saints a 20-16 win over Saracens and earned them a home semi-final in the LV= Cup. Saracens had taken the lead in the last quarter but Manoa had the final say, grabbing the crucial try.Gareth Steenson played a starring role for Exeter Chiefs as they walloped Worcester Warriors 42-3 to progress to the LV= Cup semi- finals from pool two. They needed a win to qualify and Steenson contributed 22 points, including one try, to make sure the Chiefs achieved their aim. TAGS: Exeter ChiefsOspreysSale Sharks Sharks shockerSale Sharks needed a bonus point win from their trip to play the Ospreys at the Brewery Field, in order to qualify for the LV= Cup semi-finals.They did all the hard work, scoring five tries in wet conditions, and were leading 36-30 as the match entered its dying moments. However, despite the fact they essentially had nothing but pride to play for in this last LV= Cup pool match, the Ospreys snatched a last minute try from wing Aisea Natoga and Sam Davies converted superbly from the touchline to steal the victory 37-36. At the doubleItaly centre Michele Campagnaro made a bright start to his RBS Six Nations career, scoring two tries against Wales and picking up the Man of the Match award in the 23-15 defeat in Cardiff.He ended up on the losing side, but the 20-year-old centre’s excellent effort, in only his third Test, should give Italy heart and reminds the other five nations not to take them lightly during the tournament.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS CARDIFF, WALES – FEBRUARY 01: Wales wing Alex Cuthbert celebrates the opening try during the RBS Six Nations match between Wales and Italy at the Millennium stadium on February 1, 2014 in Cardiff, Wales. (Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) Sale only had themselves to blame, with director of rugby Steve Diamond accusing them of switching off during the second half, thinking the job was done.Ross Harrison was sin-binned with 11 minutes to go, for foolishly stopping Ospreys scrum-half Tom Habberfield from taking a quick penalty in his own half. Marc Jones followed his team-mate to the bin a couple of minutes later for killing the ball close to his own line, so Sale were left with 13 men playing 15 and paid the price. What a finish! Gael Fickou gets set for take-off and  touch-down to score the winning try for France in ParisBy Katie FieldThe SaintsGael ForceFrance wing Gael Fickou was the toast of Paris on Saturday night after scoring the try which earned his nation a 26-24 win over England.It had looked like France were heading for defeat after England fought back valiantly from 16-3 down to lead 24-19. However, with four minutes to go, France put together a sustained attack and Fickou took a well-timed pass from Dimitri Szarzewski, dummied cleverly round Alex Goode and ran in under the posts to make the match-winning conversion easy for Maxime Machenaud. Cool-hand LeighIt’s the sign of a great player when he can put a potentially catastrophic mistake behind him and carry on doing his job to the best of his ability, and that’s exactly what Leigh Halfpenny did during Wales’s 23-15 win over Italy on Saturday.Wales had led for the whole match but Italy were hanging onto their coat-tails and suddenly came right back into the game when, in the 69th minute, Michele Campagnaro intercepted a pass by Halfpenny and raced in for a try which, with Tommaso Allan’s conversion, made the score 20-15 with ten minutes to go.The game was there for Wales to lose, but despite the fact an earlier, uncharacteristic penalty miss must have added to some jangling nerves for the Wales full-back, when Halfpenny was called upon to slot another three points from the tee in the 73rd minute he found the target and helped Wales keep Italy at bay.last_img read more

Mike Catt on how he tried to tackle Jonah Lomu on that fateful day 25 years ago

first_imgThursday Jun 18, 2020 Mike Catt on how he tried to tackle Jonah Lomu on that fateful day 25 years ago It’s 25 years since that famous day in South Africa when England felt the full wrath of New Zealand’s 20-year old prodigy, Jonah Lomu. The giant winger scored four tries in that semi final, blasting England out of the 1995 Rugby World Cup and leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. ADVERTISEMENTPerhaps the most famous of his tries on that day was when he ran over Mike Catt, the hapless England fullback who did all he could to attempt to stop the 118kg flyer.Catt spoke about it a few years ago, talking about his tactic for stopping the steam train heading his way.“If a 15 (fullback) has to make a tackle, that means 14 other people have missed that person,” Catt said.He says that he tried to follow the correct, basic technique of making a tackle – go low and drive through the tackle, but next thing he knew, he was on his back, turning to see Lomu scoring the try.Catt also spoke about it in this great video from World Rugby, showing Lomu’s impact on the tournament.ADVERTISEMENTWatch Lomu’s four tries, a semi final record in Rugby World Cup’s, below.

Roebuck Castle Student Residence, UCD / Kavanagh Tuite Architects

At present there are on-campus student residences for approximately 2,500 students, and it is intended to increase this to 5,000 over the coming years. The residences are grouped into defined ‘student villages’, and this project is part of the developing Roebuck Village, centred on Roebuck Castle, an historic structure dating back to c. 1200, though largely rebuilt in the 19th Century. Save this picture!© Paul TierneyThis building is the second stage of Roebuck Village, the first stage being Roebuck Hall, completed by Kavanagh Tuite Architects in 2006. When design started on Roebuck Castle residence in 2008, in establishing the brief with UCD it was decided to raise the bar, and aim for an exemplary ‘green’ project. Passive House was subsequently adopted as the reference standard, and the project has attained Passive House Certification, as well as receiving the RIAI (Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland) 2011 Award for the “Best Sustainable Project of the Year”. The project Save this picture!© Paul TierneyThe typical floor plan, for “hall of residence” style accommodation, contains en-suite student rooms and kitchenette, living and study rooms on either side of a spine corridor, arranged in two ‘apartments’ on either side of a central lift and stair core. Save this picture!© Kavanagh TuiteThis basic simple plan form is off-set and articulated around the central core, where at ground level the main entrance and cafeteria face onto a walkway through the building, providing a link with previous and future stages of the Roebuck student village. Secondary escape stairs at each end of the building are expressed, again articulating the simple compact building form. The roof-top plant room housing, containing the central plant (heat recovery ventilation, water storage tanks and other plant) is external to the insulated building volume, but is expressed as a vertical extension of the central lift and stair core. Save this picture!© Kavanagh TuiteThe building is of GGBS concrete cross-wall, stair core and floor structure, with lightweight unitised metal framed external wall panels to all the student rooms. The unitised panels create an airtight façade (point fixed to the slab edges for minimum cold bridging), and together with wood-framed curtain wall façades to the three stair core volumes, provide large sealed elements that are then easily air-sealed to the basic concrete structure with EPDM membranes. This strategy largely ‘designed-out’ problems of air sealing the project. The student rooms have passive house certified triple-glazed windows (U-value 0.8 W/m2K). They are openable, but have an interlock control, closing the local room heating circuit when the window is opened. Save this picture!elevationThe corridors and stair cores are not heated, and are glazed with wood-framed, high-performance double-glazed curtain walls (U-value 1.2 W/m2K). Save this picture!planAll concrete walls are insulated externally with 130mm foil-faced and taped PIR boards, and clad with the TrespaMeteon boards on Eurofoxrainscreen support system. This same cladding system runs over all the unitised light-weight wall panels, giving a uniform external appearance to all. The cladding has a limited number of earthy colours, relating to adjacent buildings and the natural context, helping to give the building an understandable and human scale. The project makes extensive use of renewable or recycled materials, such as acetic-acid modified timber (Accoya), recycled sorghumstrand board (Kirei Board), water-based paints, linoleum floor finishes (Marmoleum), and GGBS (ground granulated blast furnace slag) cement based concrete. Save this picture!plan GHeat recovery ventilation is provided through two central roof top heat-wheel air handling units, and heating is provided from spare capacity in the adjacent Roebuck Hall condensing gas boilers, supplying mini-radiators in the student rooms. Domestic hot water (the largest heat load in the building), is partially (33%) supplied by a drain-back flat-plate solar water heating system on the roof, coveringa local20% renewable energy requirement. Rainwater is harvested from the building roofs, and used for toilet flushing. Post-Completion Save this picture!rendering 2Post-completion commissioning and occupants’ reviews, monitoring of actual systems and comfort performance are essential for us to study and learn from the actual results, and to develop our skills and expertise going forward. Save this picture!renderingIn line with this, UCD Energy Research Group, funded by SEAI (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland), has commenced a two year programme of monitoring and post occupancy evaluation of the building. A roof-top weather station provides full climatic data,andmonitoring equipment, installed in 16 student rooms in the building, provides data on indoor temperature, humidity and CO2levels, electrical use and lighting loads. It also records overall energy required for space heating and domestic hot water; heat flows from MHRV and solar collectors. The data will be analysed by UCDBuilding Environmental Lab to inform on actual savings from individual systems, provide data for further research in the application of the Passivhaus Standard in Ireland, and ensure that the students are residing in a comfortable and healthy environment. Conclusions We have reached a stage where both regulatory changes and rising operational energy costs are giving a major ‘push’ towards better, “greener” building design standards. Improved building materials, elements and systems, and developing professional knowledge and expertise combine to give a huge opportunity for skilled designers to create better buildings, better architecture: advanced environmental performance and efficiency, functional, well detailed, and good looking solutions. Save this picture!siteThis project demonstrates that fine architectural design can be achieved together with exemplary high-performance building construction. It is necessary however, from the conceptual design stage, to ‘design-in’ thermal performance, and to ‘design-out’ thermal bridging and air-tightness problems.

The periphery of the building (a 70m x 1 m x 9 floor strip) is modeled to allow the maximum exploitation of view and cooling lines. The undulation of form thus created is percolated by careful grouping of a single window opening type.

Community demands justice as killer cop fired in Milwaukee

first_imgDemanding justice for Dontre Hamilton, Milwaukee, Oct. 16.Photo: Joe BruskyAs a result of almost six months of repeated protests organized by the Coalition for Justice and their allies, Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn announced at a press conference Oct. 15 that Christopher Manney, the cop who shot Dontre Hamilton 14 times, killing him instantly, has been fired. Hamilton family members were not invited to the press conference and were not allowed in when they arrived.Despite many dozens, perhaps hundreds, of lives — the majority Black and Brown — having been taken by Milwaukee police, this is perhaps the first firing of a police officer for killing someone in this city in more than 45 years. (, Oct. 20)Since Manney filed for duty disability retirement two days before his firing, he is eligible for possibly 75 percent of his full pay; a special board will rule on this.Meanwhile, Manney has yet to be charged with any crime whatsoever by Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm. Thus, while claiming a victory with Manney’s firing, coalition members and allies immediately demanded full justice and called for a protest the next day, Oct. 16, at Red Arrow Park where Hamilton was killed by Manney.“Dontre’s constitutional rights were violated,” declared Nate Hamilton, in front of the Milwaukee Police Department’s 1st District building during the demonstration. “His freedom was infringed upon. This officer, Christopher Manney, took my brother, so now we have no other choice but to stand up and make sure that justice prevails, not only for my brother, but for our city and our community.”The Coalition for Justice has issued a call for a 6 p.m. mass meeting Oct. 22 at All Peoples Church, 2600 N. 2nd St. in Milwaukee. It states in part:“It has been almost six months since this murder took place, and Dontre’s killer is yet to be brought to justice. We have recently learned that this officer has been fired from his duties for violating Dontre’s constitutional rights and breaching protocol. While the firing of this killer cop brings the family and the community one step closer to the justice we demand, we believe there are still other measures that must be taken to ensure that we get justice for our community.”The coalition is demanding DA Chisholm charge Manney with at least homicide. Coalition organizers are asking supporters of justice to continue contacting the DA’s office: call 414-278-4646 and/or email [email protected] more information and updates on the Dontre Hamilton “No Justice, No Compromise” fightback and other struggles against police terror, contact #NoJusticeNoCompromise, #Onward,, and FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Solidarity drives a taxi workers’ win

first_imgNew York Taxi Workers Alliance members and Executive Director Bhairavi Desai (standing,center) celebrate with allies in Taxis for All Campaign in Union Square, Aug. 9.In New York City within the last year, six taxi and “black car” limo drivers killed themselves — in financial desperation at no longer being able to support their families or pay their debts.The yellow and green cab, livery and black car drivers were being run into the ground by the advent of Uber and Lyft rides, cheated by “race-to-the-bottom” fares and placed in deadly competition with other desperate workers.Such is the result of the “new gig economy” — where someone is told you can “be your own boss” with “flexible hours,” but which really means 18-hour days with no minimum wage, no overtime, no health care, and the “freedom” to drive your own car and pay your own vehicle insurance. And, by the way, compete with every other taxi, limo, livery or Lyft/Uber driver on the road.But there is some very good news. Driver-workers won a huge victory Aug. 8. The New York Taxi Workers Alliance, after months of organizing, (encompassing the time of the six suicides), successfully drove legislation through the New York City Council that makes the city the first in the U.S. to regulate Uber and Lyft.One of the drivers tweeted the day of the victory: “We just beat Wall Street!”It’s one of the first worker victories in the 21st century gig economy, and all workers should celebrate it.In reality, the gig economy has a long and gruesome history. It was called “piece work.” Women labored in isolation day and night, each in her own room, to produce knitted or embroidered pieces at whatever small sum per item the boss offered, all the while cooking, cleaning, caretaking their children. Black women were paid next to nothing for washing and ironing at home. No minimum wage, no overtime, no health care. You provide your own scissors, needle and thread, soap and irons.Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels described the 2018 gig economy 170 years ago in the 1848 Communist Manifesto: “The laborers, who must sell themselves piecemeal, are a commodity, like every other article of commerce, and are consequently exposed to all the vicissitudes of competition, to all the fluctuations of the markets.” Before they begin to organize together, this working class is just “an incoherent mass … broken up by their mutual competition.”Since 2011 in New York City, the forces of capital have placed taxi and limo drivers in bitter competition with Uber and Lyft drivers, while using the techno-driven companies to reap immense profits from passengers and workers alike.The victory in NYC came from both “driver power” and “driver unity” since taxi and limo drivers overcame the competition to band together with exploited app drivers.They won minimum fare rates across the industry, as well as minimum pay for app drivers and app passenger fares. There will be a cap on the number of new for-hire vehicles for 12 months, with the exception of wheelchair accessible vehicles. The latter stipulation is one the NYTWA insisted on, in collaboration with the disability rights Taxis for All Campaign.The NYTWA expressed this worker unity in an Aug. 8 statement:“This victory belongs to yellow cab, green cab, livery, black car, Uber and Lyft drivers who united together in our union to transform shared struggle and heartbreak into hope and strength. And this victory belongs to New Yorkers and our allies who have stood with us to say, not one more death, not one more fallen driver crushed by poverty and despair.“What happened today didn’t just set a precedent for New York City, it set a precedent for the entire world as app companies like Uber and Lyft use technological innovation to return us to a time of sweated labor, destroying lives and livelihoods across the planet.“Today, New York City said, no more. We cannot be bought. Workers must come before a corporate agenda of greed at all costs.“Today, a workforce of over 100,000 men and women, a workforce of immigrants and people of color, finally have a reason to hope for an end to this crisis. Today we took the first step. Tomorrow we will continue to fight.” ( thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

HOD, Director Of Hospital Ought To Know Nature Of Sickness And Treatment Of Patient: Delhi High Court

first_imgNews UpdatesHOD, Director Of Hospital Ought To Know Nature Of Sickness And Treatment Of Patient: Delhi High Court Nupur Thapliyal9 May 2021 10:06 PMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court has held that in the medical field, Head of Department and the Director of a medical institution ought to know the nature of sickness and treatment of the patient keeping in view the welfare of the patient.The observation came from a division bench comprising of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jasmeet Singh while dealing with a letter patent appeal filed by one Mehraz Bano who was apprehending that certain confidential information with regard to the medical treatment and the sickness of her minor son undergoing treatment in IHBAS could be shared with persons other than the doctors who were treating him.The appellant assailed a single judge bench order dated 28 April wherein Justice Pratibha Singh had disposed of the mother’s application on the assurance given by Advocate Tushar Sannu, appearing on behalf of IHBAS that apart from the team of treating doctors, consisting of the Head of the Department and the Director, no one else is permitted to access the record of the patient.Before the division bench, it was submitted on behalf of the appellant that as per sec. 5 and 23 of the Mental Health Care Act, 2017 (Right to Confidentiality) and also the Judgment in K.S.Puttaswamy (Retd.) vs. Union of India & Ors.,(2017) 10 SCC 1, the information with regards to medical treatment taken by the patient and the sickness from which the patient is suffering from, should not be shared with anyone else except the doctors of IHBAS who were treating the patient.Analysing the aforesaid submission, the division bench observed thus:”As is clear from a reading of the above provision that an exception has been carved out in the Act itself so that proper care and treatment could be provided to the person with mental illness. In our view also, it ought to be kept in mind that the Head of the Department and the Director of IHBAS ought to know the nature of sickness and the treatment of the patient. This is for the welfare of the patient. It ought to be kept in mind that to ensure whether the treatment is going on in correct direction or not, it has to be monitored by the Head of the Department and the Director of the IHBAS.”Noting that such a consultation of a doctor with HOD or Director in the medical field “is not just for nothing”, the bench went ahead to observe thus:”On the contrary, such consultation may prove helpful in giving treatment of the patient. It is like in the case of lawyer’s argument; whenever, main lawyer is arguing the case, he/she is always taking assistance from the other junior lawyers associated with him/her and vice versa.”Agreeing with the single judge bench order, the Court directed the Director and HOD of IHBAS that the information about the sickness of the patient and the nature of the treatment being undertaken by the patient, shall not be shared with any third party.Click Here To Read OrderTags#Delhi High Court Hod of medical institutions Directors of Medical Institution Right to confidentiality Privacy of paitents Chief Justice DN Patel Justice Jasmeet Singh Next Storylast_img read more

Submarine found in Pacific Ocean with $165 million in cocaine, Coast Guard says

first_imgiStock(NEW YORK) — A submarine in the Pacific Ocean was found with over 12,000 pounds of cocaine worth over $165 million dollars, officials said.The vessel was intercepted by officials with the U.S. Coast Guard, who arrested four suspected drug smugglers, the Coast Guard said in a statement announcing the apprehension.Crew members aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Valiant, along with members of the Coast Guard Pacific Tactical Law Enforcement Team, launched two small boats to board the 40-foot self-propelled semi-submersible ship on Sept. 5.Officials recovered 1,100 pounds of cocaine which was offloaded to the Valiant during operations, the Coast Guard said. The remaining cocaine could not be safely extracted because the submarine was unstable.“There are no words to describe the feeling Valiant crew is experiencing right now,” said Cmdr. Matthew Waldron, the ship’s commanding officer, in the statement.The drug bust is one of several the U.S. Coast Guard has made this month.The Coast Guard Cutter Seneca offloaded more than 12,000 pounds of cocaine on Sept. 20 in Miami.Two other Coast Guard vessels, the Tahoma and the Midgett, were responsible for seizing over 9,000 pounds of the drug earlier this month.“These down range counter-drug operations are a vital component to the Coast Guard and Department of Homeland Security’s mission and our national security,” commander of the Seneca, John Christensen, said in a statement.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Judge puts civil lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell on hold

first_imgKuzma/iStockBy JAMES HILL, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A federal magistrate judge overseeing the only active civil lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell and the estate of sex-offender Jeffery Epstein has ordered a temporary hold on the case until Maxwell’s criminal case is complete, finding that Maxwell’s right to a fair trial outweighed the alleged victim’s pursuit of a timely resolution of her claims.“Should discovery in the civil action proceed, Maxwell would be forced to decide whether to defend herself by making pretrial disclosures and giving deposition testimony … or to invoke her 5th Amendment privilege against self- incrimination,” wrote U.S. Magistrate Judge Debra Freeman in her order this week. “This legitimate concern, made more real and immediate by the active posture of [the] criminal case, militates in favor of a stay.”Federal prosecutors had asked Freeman earlier this month to halt proceedings in the lawsuit, which was filed in January by an alleged child sex-abuse victim against Maxwell and Epstein’s estate. Prosecutors told the judge that there is a “significant risk” that proceeding with the case “would adversely affect the ongoing criminal prosecution against Maxwell.”In a letter from Audrey Strauss, the Acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, prosecutors asserted that there is a “factual overlap between the civil and criminal cases” that could result in premature disclosure of evidence and testimony from witnesses who may be called upon in both cases.“Such witnesses may be forced to testify about any efforts to assist the criminal investigation and prosecution, and may thereby expose facts about the investigation … and could potentially expose witnesses and/or their families to harassment,” the government’s letter states. “Moreover, permitting any discovery to proceed in this lawsuit would enable Maxwell to seek a preview of trial testimony in the criminal case, and would afford her with a broader array of discovery than she is entitled to in the criminal case.”The civil lawsuit, filed under the pseudonym Jane Doe, contains allegations that are substantially similar to those contained in the criminal indictment against Maxwell, who allegedly groomed three minor girls to be abused by Epstein between 1994 and 1997 and, in some instances, participated in the abuse herself, according to prosecutors. Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to the charges and has denied the allegations in the civil suit.In its letter to the court, the government declined to address speculation Maxwell’s attorneys have raised in court filings that Doe is one of the alleged victims identified in the criminal case. Doe’s attorneys have declined to comment on the apparent parallels to the criminal case.By advocating for a stay in the civil case, the government found itself, in this instance, aligned with Maxwell and the co-executors of Epstein’s estate, who had been arguing for months that the case should be placed on hold while criminal investigations of Epstein’s alleged co-conspirators remain open.“Absent a stay, Ms. Maxwell will be forced to choose between her constitutional right to remain silent and her active and vigorous participation in defending against and refuting [Doe’s] false claims in this case,” wrote Maxwell’s lawyer, Laura Menninger, in a letter to the court earlier this month.Doe’s lawyers had opposed those efforts, arguing in court filings that a stay would “simply delay long overdue justice.”“[Doe] is seeking to hold defendant Maxwell accountable for the heinous and sick sexual acts she committed against [her] over the course of several years while [she] was just a child,” wrote her lawyer, Robert Glassman of Panish, Shea & Boyle, LLP in a letter to the court. “[She] is best served by pressing forward with her claims — not waiting even longer for justice.”Of more than 30 women who brought legal claims against Epstein’s estate following his death last year, Doe was the only accuser who had declined to voluntarily put her lawsuit on hold to pursue an alternative resolution via the Epstein Victims’ Compensation Fund, a non-adversarial program established by the estate that began evaluating claims in June.Doe alleges in her complaint that she was first approached at age 13 by Epstein and Maxwell in 1994 at a summer camp at the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan and that a months-long grooming process by Epstein and Maxwell continued after she returned home to Florida.Doe, now 40, alleges that the sexual abuse by Epstein escalated over the next few years as Epstein and Maxwell asserted control over her life. She claims she was sexually abused at Epstein’s homes in Florida, New York and his ranch in New Mexico, and that she would often travel to those locations with Epstein and Maxwell on one of Epstein’s private jets.“Epstein’s system of abuse was facilitated in large part by his co-conspirator and accomplice, Maxwell, who helped supply him with a steady stream of young and vulnerable girls,” the complaint said. “During Doe’s time in New York, Maxwell also regularly facilitated Epstein’s abuse of Doe and was frequently present when it occurred.”Maxwell formally requested a stay in Doe’s case last month, arguing that Doe had failed to articulate a “cogent reason” for wanting to press ahead with her lawsuit while the criminal case is ongoing and while Doe can choose to present her claims to the estate’s compensation fund.“If it is money she seeks, she can pursue it in the claims program,” Menninger wrote in a letter to the court last week. “If it is ‘justice’ she seeks, the criminal case will resolve those issues one way or the other.”Doe’s lawyers countered that a stay of the case would deprive her and the public with an opportunity to learn long-hidden information about Epstein’s alleged criminal sex-trafficking operation, and Maxwell’s alleged role in it.“The continuation of this last remaining civil avenue can furnish the public with critical information as to defendant Maxwell’s well-known criminal enterprise, how it was operated and all those involved. A stay of the civil proceedings would provide what defendant Maxwell has sought for years — concealing her heinous acts from public view,” Glassman wrote to the court last month.Judge Freeman was unpersuaded, determining that the public interest is best served by “protecting the integrity of criminal proceedings.”“Overall, and despite [Doe’s] assertion that a stay would work to her disadvantage, this Court finds that any generalized prejudice that she would suffer as the result of a stay is not sufficient to counterbalance the other factors that the Court should consider, which all heavily favor a stay,” Freeman wrote.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Atlanta shooting and the legacy of misogyny and racism against Asian women

first_imgMegan Varner/Getty ImagesBY: MARLENE LENTHANG, ABC NEWS(ATLANTA) — While authorities are still investigating the motive behind Tuesday’s shooting spree at three Atlanta-area spas that left eight people dead, including six Asian women, some advocates say the violence is inextricably linked to a history of racism and misogyny against Asian women.Suspect Robert Aaron Long, 21, told investigators that he blames the businesses he targeted for providing an outlet for his addiction to sex, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s office said, yet officials believe there were multiple motivators for the attack.However, advocates who spoke with ABC News say attacks against Asian Americans, in particular, Asian American women, is rooted in an ugly side of American history.“This is racially motivated sexual violence against women,” Sung Yeon Choimorrow, executive director of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum, told ABC News.“The reason they died wasn’t just because they were women, even though that’s what the killer says it is. They were murdered because they were Asian American women,” Choimorrow said. “You cannot separate that.”The Asian women who lost their lives in the shooting were Daoyou Feng, 44; Xiaojie Tan, 49; Delaina Hyun Jung Grant, 51; Suncha Kim, 69; Soon Chung Park, 74; and Yong A. Yue, 63. Two other people, Paul Andre Michels, 54; and Ashley Yaun, 33; were also fatally shot.Long has been charged with eight counts of murder in the attack, but has not been charged with a hate crime. Officials are still trying to piece together a motive.Still, Choimorrow pointed to harmful stereotypes that objectify and depict Asian women as what she described as “hypersexualized,” “meek” and “submissive.”“That really comes from America’s long history of how they have categorized Asian American women as commodity,” she said. “All the way back to 1875 with the Page Act, where they banned Chinese women from coming to the U.S. — really because they didn’t want the Chinese population to grow.”Legalized discriminationThe Page Act of 1875, “ostensibly barred the importation of women” from Asian countries, “for purposes of prostitution,” according to language in a 2011 congressional bill expressing regret for passing discriminatory laws against Chinese immigrants in America.The 2011 bill also referenced the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, which banned Chinese laborers from entering the United States and was the first federal law that excluded a single group of people on the basis of race, according to congressional documentation.Discriminatory exclusion laws against Chinese immigrants were repealed in 1943, according to the Department of State Office of the Historian’s website.American imperialism and pop cultureRacism against Asian Americans continued despite the end of discriminatory legislation.The United States’ imperial military presence in the Asia Pacific also played a role in stigmatizing Asians when American soldiers went abroad during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Philippine-American War.And degrading depictions of Asian women are “pervasive” in pop culture, Dr. Melissa Borja, an assistant professor of Asian/Pacific Islander American studies at the University of Michigan, told ABC News.“This depiction of Asian women as seductive, immoral, hypersexual … is in our popular culture in movies like ‘Full Metal Jacket’ and the musical ‘South Pacific’,” Borja said.She said the Atlanta shooting is part of a “long-standing trend of violence” against Asian American women this year and amid a spate of anti-Asian hate crimes fueled, in part, by the racist rhetoric surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.Former President Donald Trump, had repeatedly referred to COVID-19 as the “China virus,” among other offensive terms, during his presidency — speech that helped stoke anti-Asian sentiment, some critics have said. Despite his comments, last March Trump condemned xenophobic attacks against Asians and tweeted: “It is very important that we totally protect our Asian American community in the United States…The spreading of the Virus is NOT their fault in any way, shape, or form.”The Stop AAPI Hate coalition received nearly 3,800 hate incidents from March 19 to Feb. 28 of this year.Among those reports, 68% of the victims were women — meaning women were targeted 2.3 times more than men.Borja conducted research with the University of Michigan’s Virulent Hate Project which analyzed more than 1,100 incidents of anti-Asian news media reports and found 61% of victims were Asian women.“Asian American women were already dealing with the brunt of racist attacks in the past year, and they were already suffering,” Borja said. “Asian American women are feeling the rage in this moment, in the fear that they now have about their own safety, their own ability to go to work, walk down the street, go get groceries, go about their daily lives.”Women of color in labor jobs, such as the victims who worked at the spa, are even more vulnerable because even amid the pandemic and rising hate incidents, they have to leave the safety of their homes to work.Red Canary Song, a New York-based coalition of Asian advocates for massage parlor workers and sex workers, said Asians who work in these spaces are made “invisible” by gender and work.“The women who were killed faced specific racialized gendered violence for being Asian women and massage workers … they were subjected to sexualized violence stemming from the hatred of sex workers, Asian women, working class people, and immigrants,” the group said in a statement.Borja said the attack and today’s data are just “the tip of the iceberg in the range of incidents of hate.”She said there’s a lack of resources to document hate incidents against Asians, mistrust surrounding reporting incidents to law enforcement, a lack of cultural understanding around hate crimes, and language barriers. Stop AAPI Hate says it led the effort to improve data collection by allowing anyone across the nation to report anti-Asian hate incidents, without sharing it with law enforcement.Advocates are calling for conversations to unravel harmful stereotypes, for more ways to safely report hate crimes against Asians, for schools to educate youth on the nation’s Asian American history, and for legislation to address systemic issues at play.For now the Asian American community is grieving the lives lost in the shooting with the hope for a better tomorrow.“I want to tell all Asian women out there who are really struggling with thinking, ‘I know this is not about me, it’s about the eight victims,’ know that it’s okay to feel (for) both,” Choimorrow said “It’s okay to feel so scared because that feels so close to home.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Krill transport in the Scotia Sea and environs

first_imgHistorical observations of the large-scale flow and frontal structure of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current in the Scotia Sea region were combined with the wind-induced surface Ekman transport to produce a composite flow field. This was used with a Lagrangian model to investigate transport of Antarctic krill. Particle displacements from known krill spawning areas that result from surface Ekman drift, a composite large-scale flow, and the combination of the two were calculated. Surface Ekman drift alone only transports particles a few kilometres over the 150-day krill larval development time. The large-scale composite flow moves particles several hundreds of kilometres over the same time, suggesting this is the primary transport mechanism. An important contribution of the surface Ekman drift on particles released along the continental shelf break west of the Antarctic Peninsula is moving them north-northeast into the high-speed core of the southern Antarctic Circumpolar Current Front, which then transports the particles to South Georgia in about 140–160 days. Similar particle displacement calculations using surface flow fields obtained from the Fine Resolution Antarctic Model do not show overall transport from the Antarctic Peninsula to South Georgia due to the inaccurate position of the southern Antarctic Circumpolar Current Front in the simulated circulation fields. The particle transit times obtained with the composite large-scale flow field are consistent with regional abundances of larval krill developmental stages collected in the Scotia Sea. These results strongly suggest that krill populations west of the Antarctic Peninsula provide the source for the krill populations found around South Georgia.last_img read more

Widespread association between the ericoid mycorrhizal fungus Rhizoscyphus ericae and a leafy liverwort in the maritime and sub-Antarctic

first_imgA recent study identified a fungal isolate from the Antarctic leafy liverwort Cephaloziella varians as the ericoid mycorrhizal associate Rhizoscyphus ericae. However, nothing is known about the wider Antarctic distribution of R. ericae in C. varians, and inoculation experiments confirming the ability of the fungus to form coils in the liverwort are lacking. Using direct isolation and baiting with Vaccinium macrocarpon seedlings, fungi were isolated from C. varians sampled from eight sites across a 1875-km transect through sub- and maritime Antarctica. The ability of an isolate to form coils in aseptically grown C. varians was also tested. Fungi with 98–99% sequence identity to R. ericae internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and partial large subunit ribosomal (r)DNA sequences were frequently isolated from C. varians at all sites sampled. The EF4/Fung5 primer set did not amplify small subunit rDNA from three of five R. ericae isolates, probably accounting for the reported absence of the fungus from C. varians in a previous study. Rhizoscyphus ericae was found to colonize aseptically-grown C. varians intracellularly, forming hyphal coils. This study shows that the association between R. ericae and C. varians is apparently widespread in Antarctica, and confirms that R. ericae is at least in part responsible for the formation of the coils observed in rhizoids of field-collected C. varians.last_img read more

first_imgAn Oxford pharmacologist has attacked the government’s plans to upgrade cannabis to a class B drug, ignoring directions not to speak to journalists.Professor Les Iversen (above), a leading expert on the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD), said that the government should not ignore the advice of the group, which is expected to conclude that reclassification is not justified.“I was not pleased to read what appears to be a deliberate leak about the government’s alleged intention to reclassify, regardless of advise received,” Iversen said.His outburst follows claims that the Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Home Secretary Jaqui Smith are determined to reverse the decision to downgrade the drug to class C once the ACMD has completed their report in the next few months.He claimed that if the government went ahead with reclassification regardless of the ACMD’s report, its authority would be undermined.“If [we] were to recommend no change and this were to happen, I believe it would be the first time that any Home Secretary acted against the recommendations offered and it would call into question the whole function and future of this group,” he continued.The general recommendations of the ACMD report are not yet known, but ministers are already making clear that Jaqui Smith is prepared to overrule the expert group.According to the Reverend Martin Blakeborough, a former member of ACMD, Les Iversen and his collegues will be opposed to the Government’s stance. “There is no significantly new evidence to suggest that cannabis is any more harmful than in the last review we did eighteen months ago,” he explained. “There is no way that the ACMD would support any reclassification of cannabis unless there were some political shenanigans going on.”by Omotola Akerelelast_img read more

first_imgGARRET MATHEWS PRESENTS “SANDRA’S STORY” A TWO ACT DRAMA/COMEDY“Sandra’s Story” is a two-act drama/comedy that examines urban poverty through the eyes of a precocious 10-year-old girl. Only one child in Sandra’s class does not qualify for the free-lunch program. Few caregivers graduated high school. Many have problems with drugs and alcohol.A dozen or so years ago, she invited me to volunteer at her fourth-grade class at Cedar Hall Elementary, an at-risk school in Evansville. It was truly an eye-opening experience. Many of her kids had never been to the mall or a ball game or a museum. So I took them, usually in groups of two or three. Occasionally I wrote metro columns (Evansville Courier & Press) about our adventures.Not only did Mindy welcome me into her classroom, she facilitated our excursions by clearing the way with the children’s caregivers.While “Sandra’s Story” is a work of fiction, several things that transpired in Mindy’s classroom and on our little field trips are in the play.I dedicate this production to Mindy, and educators like her in the ongoing struggle to impart knowledge and wisdom to their young charges when the home front isn’t always what it should be.Toni Schaperjohn directs “Sandra’s Story.” Jasmine Withrow is stage manager.The eight-person cast includes veteran performers Rick Kersting, Candi Vincent, Mark Atchison and Jim Hunter.Show dates are March 18, 7 p.m.; March 19, 7 p.m.; March 20, 2 p.m.; March 24, 7 p.m.; March 25, 7 p.m.; March 26, 7 p.m.  at Studio 321 on the East Side near Eastland Mall.  Evansville-area agencies that work with at-risk young people have been invited to set up informational booths in the theater lobby. EDITORS NOTE:  Garret Mathews is retired from writing the metro column for The Evansville Courier & Press. He came to the newspaper in 1987 after writing for the Bluefield (W.Va.) Daily Telegraph for 15 years. He penned more than 6,500 columns on subjects ranging from mail-order brides and Appalachian snake-handlers to a female bootlegger from Western Kentucky who was still selling wine and beer on the sly at 91.

Haiti opens debate on proposed constitutional changes

first_imgPORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Haiti has unveiled multiple proposed changes to overhaul the country’s Constitution that officials plan to present to voters starting this week for an upcoming referendum that looms amid growing unrest. The public meetings are scheduled to be held across Haiti for the next three weeks, ahead of the April 25 constitutional referendum, which would be the first one held in more than 30 years. One of the biggest changes is an omission in the draft issued by an independent commission tasked with creating the constitutional changes that have angered many. Haiti’s current Constitution bars presidents from serving two consecutive terms, but the draft only states that a president cannot serve for more than two terms; it says nothing about whether they can be served consecutively.last_img read more

2016 Election Observer: Matthew Hall

first_imgEditor’s Note: Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, The Observer will sit down with Notre Dame experts to break down the election and its importance to students. In this sixth installment, News writer Rachel O’Grady asks professor of political science and director of graduate studies Matthew Hall about the consequences of the results of the Nevada caucus and the upcoming Super Tuesday primaries.  Rachel O’Grady: Trump just pretty handily won Nevada, and this is his third win in a row. What does this mean for the Republican Party? Can Trump secure the nomination?Matthew Hall: I’d say it means two things for the Republican Party. First, the anger and frustration the party’s base feels toward the party elites has [been] reaching an unprecedented boiling point, and the voters are rejecting their leadership’s direction. Second, if Trump succeeds, it may mean a fundamental redefinition of the party’s stance on issues such as trade, taxes and foreign policy. Can Trump win? Of course he CAN win. Technically you or I CAN win — the votes haven’t been cast yet, and anything could happen if this election goes to a brokered convention. Will he win? There’s no way to tell for sure, and if this election has taught us anything, it’s that experts can’t predict what is going to happen.ROG: Super Tuesday is this coming Tuesday. What should we be looking for? How much does it matter?MH: Ordinarily, Super Tuesday favors candidates who can compete on a large scale. Unlike the early states, in which retails politics can propel an unknown candidate into the spotlight, on the Super Tuesday the advantage goes to candidates with name recognition, media attention and money. That means it should be even easier for Trump to win big. The real questions: Can Rubio or Cruz win any state at all — other than Cruz winning Texas? If not, Trump appears to be unstoppable.ROG: Looking more at the Democrats, Sanders beat Clinton significantly on young women 18 – 24 years old. What does this mean for either one of their campaigns? Will this hurt Clinton long term?MH: I doubt Clinton’s lack of support among young voters — or specifically, young women — will hurt her if she secures the nomination. I’d wager that most of these young voters will support Clinton in a general election. The critical questions moving forward are: 1. whether young people turn out to vote in large numbers and 2. whether younger Hispanic and African American voters continue to move toward Sanders. If either or both of those things happen, Clinton may have a difficult time securing the nomination.ROG: In your research and opinion, what do you think will be the most important issue in the general election?MH: I think it largely depends on world events, which I cannot predict. What happens in Syria. What happens on the stock market. Usually, events drive the discussion more than anything else, so I can’t predict what the discussion of issues will look like. If it’s Trump vs. Clinton, I would expect little focus on issues at all. Instead, I’d expect a campaign of insults, posturing and scandals.ROG: Taking it back to college campuses, particularly here at ND, primaries in many of our home states are coming up. What is something we, as college students, should be paying particular attention to?MH: Everyone should be figuring out right now where and how they can vote. Can you register here in Indiana? Can you vote absentee back home? Our current politics look the way they do because young people don’t participate. If every college student who talked about the election on soil media actually voted, we would get wildly different outcomes.

Cotton Variety Selection

first_imgWith so many options on the market, growers have had to learn how to manage different varieties. In Terrell County, McGhee used different seed varieties from different companies, planted them in field trials and harvested the crops to see what variety worked best in his county. “We rely heavily on cooperation with our county agents to get these trials planted and harvested,” Whitaker said. “We use the information from these trials implemented by our agents to get an idea of how well varieties perform across the state.” Nick McGhee, Terrell County Extension coordinator, is one of those cooperating Extension agents.“This program is something that a lot of the growers in Terrell County can benefit from. Cotton variety selection is an important decision that they face every year,” he said. With cotton prices plummeting below 60 cents this winter, selecting a variety to plant for the upcoming season is a critical decision for Georgia farmers. The University of Georgia Cotton Variety Selection Program provides growers with the research-based information they need to produce the state’s No. 1 row crop.UGA Extension agronomist Jared Whitaker, who helped start the program, said he has seen the right variety choice add $100 an acre or more to a farmer’s bottom line. In 2014, DP 1252 B2RF, CG3783 B2RF and PHY 333 WRF were the varieties with statistically similar and highest average lint yield when averaged across all 20 trials. With regards to consistency across those trials, those same varieties had yields within the top three of 12 varieties evaluated in at least 45 percent of the 20 trials. For more information about variety performance from this program, contact your local county agent or visit the UGA Cotton Web page at data produced from the cotton variety selection can be seen at to UGA’s Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, Georgia produced more than $1.2 billion in cotton in 2013. “We started the program so that we could evaluate a small set of promising varieties across a large number of locations and environments to observe performance in various situations and get an idea of where varieties perform best and which are most consistent,” Whitaker said.Jeff Davis County cotton farmer Wayne Herndon has helped with the program since its inception. Whitaker uses Herndon’s land to plant and test different cotton varieties.center_img “The program allows us to see what variety works best in different types of soil and environments,” Herndon said. “And it has helped me decide what varieties to plant.”Rather than growing cotton in just one part of the state for the UGA program, Whitaker aims to grow cotton in different counties across Georgia to see how the different varieties perform in various environments. Cotton seed can be expensive, and yields can be attributed to the variety that farmers choose. According to McGhee, cotton producers have the potential to increase their gross revenue by more than $3.5 million annually in Terrell County if they choose the right variety. “They were all planted in the same field and managed the same way, which determined what variety yielded the best,” McGhee said.

Peru Aims to Eradicate Record-Setting 22,000 Hectares of Coca in 2013

first_img LIMA — Peru’s government wants the world to know it’s dead serious about eliminating illegal coca crops used to produce cocaine. Interior Minister Wilfredo Pedraza announced Jan. 14 that his government will eradicate at least 22,000 hectares of coca in 2013. This is 4,000 hectares more than the original target for the year, and well above the record-breaking 14,100 hectares destroyed in 2012. Meeting the ambitious eradication target would be a major step in reversing the upward trend in Peruvian coca production that began around 2005. While previous governments met eradication targets, coca-growing farmers replanted at a faster rate. The government’s new plan includes a much broader reach for the eradication squad, known by its Spanish acronym CORAH, an increase in the budget for coca eradication and drug interdiction, and a program to dramatically boost the state’s presence not only in zones where coca is currently grown, but in areas where it could be grown. “We are developing post-coca and preventative strategies,” said Mario Ríos, head of the promotion and monitoring unit at state anti-drug agency DEVIDA. “We need to provide alternatives to farmers leaving coca, and make sure coca does not spread to other areas.” It’s still unclear if the CORAH eradication brigades will move into Loreto. Zarate said an eradication program similar to the Upper Huallaga would be too costly, because of the remoteness of the area. An alternative would be periodic eradication missions, as well as anti-drug operations coordinated with Brazilian and Colombian authorities. Peru and Brazil set up a task force late last year to develop protocols for joint police and military operations in border zones, given the fact that the two countries share nearly 3,000 kilometers (1,800 miles) of jungle border. Peru recorded 62,500 hectares of coca in 2011, according to the annual report presented by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), an increase of slightly more than 2 percent over the previous year. That gain came despite the eradication of more than 12,000 hectares in 2010. Peru is the world’s second-largest coca producer, according to UNODC figures — right behind first-place Colombia, with 64,000 hectares under cultivation, and ahead of Bolivia, with 27,200 hectares. President Ollanta Humala has declared he’d like to see Peru fall to last place by the time he leaves office in July 2016. While estimates differ on production, most analysts believe Peru produces between 350 and 400 metric tons of cocaine annually. TThe Peruvian government had kept eradication brigades out of the VRAEM for fear of a social explosion, fueled not only by the Shining Path and drug traffickers, but also due to the lack of a state presence. Yet the Humala government, faced with increased violence and the spread of coca crops in the Belgium-sized zone, ultimately announced a major offensive for 2013. The Humala administration has earmarked $1.1 billion for the VRAEM this year, more than double the previous year’s budget. This includes major outlays in roads, water, electricity systems, education and health care. Defense Minister Pedro Cateriano announced in late December that the state would also incur $300 million in new debt in 2013 to fight terrorism and drug trafficking in the zone, including the construction of eight anti-terrorism bases and acquisition of boats and aircraft. Former coca farmer Teodoro Rojas said extending eradication to the VRAEM is contingent upon the government following through on its development pledge. “Coca can be eradicated, but the state also needs to eradicate the root cause behind coca-growing, which is poverty,” he said. “If the root cause is not eliminated, coca will only spread elsewhere.” Ríos said that Loreto is “a troubling new scenario. We are seeing a spread of coca and [opium] poppies happening at a fast pace.” Retired Police Gen. Juan Zarate, who coordinates CORAH, said the VRAEM and Loreto pose different challenges. The issue in the VRAEM, according to Zarate, is security, and the eradicators will require protection. This should be helped by legislation passed by Congress in late 2012, which gives Peru’s Armed Forces a role in fighting drugs. The government estimates that it will need at least six years to get a firm grip on the coca-cocaine problem in the VRAEM. The Humala administration has budgeted about $15 million for CORAH in 2013. This may not seem like much, but it’s the first time the program has its own line item in the budget. In the past, CORAH has been funded primarily by international donors led by the United States and the 27-member European Union. CORAH extends coca eradication efforts to VRAEM By Dialogo January 21, 2013center_img This year, Peru plans to extend its forced eradication program to major hotspots. The eradication brigade, CORAH, has focused exclusively on the northern Upper Huallaga Valley since its founding. Ríos said the coming year will see eradication in the valleys formed by the Apurímac, Ene and Mantaro rivers, known as the VRAEM, and possibly in the Putumayo zone, in the department of Loreto, along the northern border where Peru meets Brazil and Colombia. In 2012, the VRAEM was home to nearly 20,000 hectares of coca, said the UNODC report, accounting for 32 percent of Peru’s total land devoted to coca cultivation. Coca crops have been on the rise there since early in the past decade. The area — the last bastion of leftist Shining Path rebels — has also been under a state of emergency since June 2003. Last year saw a jump in Shining Path violence, including the mass kidnapping of gas pipeline workers in April, and the killing of 20 police officers and soldiers. While coca crops in Loreto represented just 7 percent of land used for coca in the UNODC report, they have expanded rapidly, increasing from 1,209 hectares in 2008 to 4,450 hectares in 2011; that same year, coca output jumped by 40 percent. “This is the first time there will be eradication in the VRAEM and it has to be done correctly, accompanied by a state platform that provides all the necessary services. Isolated programs will not work,” said Ríos. Authorities say eradication will succeed only if coca farmers have viable alternatives and markets for what they grow. Peru has already replaced coca with coffee and cacao; other alternative products that show promise include rubber, biofuels and tropical fruits. “Alternative development is working and we are focusing on cooperation, not only in financial assistance but cooperation for technical assistance, creating markets and certifying products. We have to guarantee a diversity of products and markets for farmers,” said Carmen Masias, the director of DEVIDA. Project gets $1.1 billion in funding this year last_img read more

Sturridge could face Everton

first_imgLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has not given up hope of Daniel Sturridge playing some part in the Merseyside derby. Press Association The England striker has been sorely missed by the Reds since sustaining a thigh injury on international duty earlier this month but is inching ever closer to a comeback. In his absence Rodgers’ side have lost to Aston Villa and West Ham, snuck a last-gasp win over Ludogorets in the Champions League and required penalties to see off Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup. The 19-year-old forward, whose contract at Anfield runs until 2017, is one of the brightest young talents in the Premier League and has had an impressive start to the season but his manager is not losing sleep over the reported interest. “It shows that he’s playing exceptionally well,” said Rodgers. “I think you could probably link Raheem with every club in the world at the moment. He’s a fantastic young talent. “I’ve nothing really to add to it. There’s obviously lots of speculation every day about players coming and going here at Liverpool. “He’s a wonderful boy who’s developing very, very well here. I think him and his representatives and the people close to him know how comfortable he is here and I’m sure at some point in the future, whatever contract we’re looking to work with will be sorted, but he’s still got three years left and there’s no rush from my perspective.” They would dearly love to unleash the 25-year-old against their neighbours at Anfield but although Rodgers was upbeat about his recovery, an appearance this weekend appears to be based on hope as much as expectation. “We’ll be very happy to have him back and we hope that can be this weekend,” said the Northern Irishman. “We’ve got a number of injuries that we’re going to give every chance to. “He (Sturridge) is a player who’s out on the field working. Him and a number of others we’ll just assess nearer the time. But if he doesn’t make it he won’t be far off after that. “He’s someone that responds well to treatment. Obviously it’s gone well but there are still a couple of days to go before the game. The most important thing is he’s near to fitness. “He certainly won’t be match-fit, he hasn’t played for a few weeks, but it’ll be great to have him back because he’s a wonderful player for us. “He’s a great reference for our team at the top of the field, his pace and movement and quality, which we saw the last time he played against Tottenham.” Another of Rodgers’ talented young England stars, Raheem Sterling, has been linked this week with Spanish giants Real Madrid. last_img read more

Arsenal and Tottenham fans hit out over lack of transfer window signings

first_imgFans from Arsenal and Tottenham have expressed their frustration at the north London rivals’ lack of activity during the summer transfer window. Press Association “Arsenal are in a very strong financial position and it is of course disappointing that the transfer window has closed with just the signing of Petr Cech,” it statement read. “Arsenal have built a strong squad and just one or two more good additions would have strengthened the chances of winning a first title in 11 years. “No one wants Arsenal to buy players just for the sake of it, but we do want to see the money being invested to make the club stronger.” The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust is angry that Spurs missed out on West Brom striker Saido Berahino despite repeated bids, leaving the club with Harry Kane as their only available forward. “We think a credible explanation from the board to address the genuine concerns of supporters, many of whom have backed the current board consistently, is now required,” it said in a statement. “We welcome the good signings that have been made, but are concerned at the gaps that still exist and the pressure this places on the manager and the team.” center_img Arsenal’s solitary signing has been goalkeeper Petr Cech from Chelsea for £10million, making them the only club from a major European league not to recruit an outfield player this summer.

Football Bees’ rally against C-NS falls just short

first_imgA minute remained in the half and the Northstars surprised the Bees with an onside kick, recovering it at midfield. Just 11 seconds before intermission, J.J. Razmovski found a streaking Adron Pafford down the right sideline for a 37-yard scoring play.In a span of less than four minutes, a close contest was now a 28-7 game, and B’ville could not afford to fall further behind. Instead, it began to climb back, sparked by a defense that held C-NS without a first down in the third quarter.Mixing in runs and passes from Braden McCard (including a 20-yard tipped pass to Pat May on fourth down, the Bees drove to the one, where Strong scored his second TD of the night.Then, on the first play of the fourth quarter, McCard, from his own 40, threw down the left sideline to Pat May, who caught it, cut back and found the end zone, and the Bees were within a score, 28-21, with plenty of time to catch up.Pinned at its own 13-yard line after the ensuing kickoff, C-NS regrouped, and Razmovski made his three best throws of the night.One was a third-down pass to Mason Ellis that covered 23 yards. Then, on fourth-and-four at the Bees’ 47, Razmovski hit Pafford, who broke tackles on a 37-yard run to set up first-and-goal. Three plays later, Pafford lost his defender on a cut to the middle and Razmovski found him again, the TD covering 12 yards with 4:55 to play.That turned out to be the game-winner because B’ville again responded, McCard throwing a 12-yard TD pass to May with 1:13 left, but an onside kick was smothered by the Northstars, who were able to run out the clock.McCard completed eight of 10 passes for 177 yards and also ran for a career-best 103 yards on 10 carries, while Strong finished with 142 yards on 24 carries. May and Robert Hamm led the defense with seven tackles apiece as Dan Ewald added five tackles and three assists.B’ville (2-2 league, 3-3 overall) visits Fayetteville-Manlius (1-3 league, 2-4 overall) in next Friday’s regular-season finale. Only a win guarantees a post-season berth since a loss creates a three-way tie for third between the Bees, Hornets and the winner of the West Genesee-Rome Free Academy game, and of those three, two will qualify for the playoffs.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story In the past, if the Baldwinsville football team ever had to face a three-touchdown-deficit in the second half, its style of play would almost preclude any idea for a glorious comeback.Yet on Friday night at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium, the Bees found itself battling back against visiting Cicero-North Syracuse, knowing that if it could complete its rally from a 28-7 hole, it would likely host a first-round Section III Class AA playoff game.B’ville did find the end zone three times – but it wasn’t quite enough as the Northstars parlayed a fourth-quarter scoring drive into a tense 35-28 victory and a chance to grab the Class AA-2 division regular-season title if it beats Utica Proctor next weekend. Both teams arrived at this game with 2-1 league marks, and they would trade scoring drives in the early going, C-NS taking a 7-0 lead, B’ville countering with a strong ground attack anchored by Willie Strong as he scored on a one-yard plunge early in the second quarter.It was still 7-7 when C-NS erupted late in the half. The catalyst was a scoring drive familiar to B’ville fans where the Northstars ran the ball on all 12 plays, with Mike Washington getting 11 of those carries and going the final yard for the TD.By contrast, the next time C-NS had the ball after a fourth-down stop by the defense at the B’ville 38, Washington needed only one play to sprint 62 yards to the end zone, making it 21-7.center_img Tags: Baldwinsvillefootballlast_img read more

After struggling in first 2 games, Brewers bullpen shuts down Dodgers in Game 3

first_imgOn Saturday in Milwaukee, there were questions about whether the Brewers might have overplayed their hand with their vaunted bullpen. In Game 1 on Friday, they had pulled starter Gio Gonzalez after just two innings, giving the Dodgers looks at six of their relievers. They’d also used relief ace Josh Hader for three innings. They held on to that victory, winning 6-5 after leading 6-1. The next day, with Hader unavailable, the Brewers blew a 3-0 lead.Jeremy Jeffress gave up the lead when he allowed Justin Turner to hit a two-run homer.Jeffress, who had been in something of a rough patch even before the Turner homer, again got the ball on Monday, with a four-run lead in the ninth. Although he allowed the Dodgers to load the bases with one out, he struck out Yasmani Grandal and Brian Dozier to end it.“He’s been in plenty of situations like that,” reliever Corey Knebel said. “Bases loaded, one out. He’s done it before. Everyone knew he could do it. He dominated. He was lights out there.”Jeffress said he never lacked confidence, and clearly, his teammates didn’t lose confidence in him. Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco LOS ANGELES — That was the Milwaukee Brewers bullpen that you’ve heard so much about.After they nearly blew the first game and did blow the second, the Brewers’ relievers sliced through the Dodgers with relative ease – besides one temporary hiccup in the ninth – on their way to closing a 4-0 victory in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.Not only did the Brewers blank the Dodgers over the final 11 outs of the game, but they did so in such an efficient manner that all of their relievers will be available again in Game 4 on Tuesday.“That was really good for us, after what happened the last day in Milwaukee,” right-hander Joakim Soria said. “Every guy tells me every day I’m an All-Star,” Jeffress said. “They say I’m a great pitcher. Don’t let anything get in your way. Forget all the negativity and just continue to pitch the way you can pitch.”While Jeffress finished the game, perhaps the most significant piece of the relief puzzle was put into place when Hader pitched in the eighth inning.The Brewers have used him judiciously this season. He had a major league-leading 33 appearances of at least four outs. As a result, he pitched in back-to-back games only six times this season, and he’d never pitched three times in a row.With games on three straight days at Dodger Stadium, the Brewers could have been without Hader for one of the games. Winning a game without using him would have been a boon to their chances of winning the series.Related Articles Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire center_img They had a shot at that, with a four-run lead in the eighth, but Manager Craig Counsell still opted to use him with lefties Joc Pederson and Max Muncy due.“At some point, the other team is pretty good and you respect their hitters on their team,” Counsell said. “And I thought getting Pederson and Muncy out of the game for pinch-hitters with Josh was a good way to get outs.”Hader struck out pinch-hitters David Freese and Matt Kemp, and he did so on just eight pitches, which means he can go again on Tuesday. Even Knebel, who recorded five outs, needed just 19 pitches. No one threw more than Jeffress’ 21.With Gonzalez starting and likely to go only a few innings, the Brewers will have the entire bullpen ready behind him.“We feel like we’re in really good shape,” Counsell said. “We’re not just trying to win games here. We’re trying to win the series.

Higuain determined to leave, says AC Milan coach Gattuso

first_imgMilan paid 18 million euros ($20.75 million) to sign him on loan, with a clause to make the deal permanent for a further 36 million euros.Higuain had his most successful season under Sarri, breaking the Serie A goalscoring record with 36 goals in the 2015/16 campaign.“I’ve talked to him a great deal, but it’s hard to give advice, because the career of a player only lasts 13-14 years,” continued Gattuso.“It’s his mind, not mine. The most important thing is to talk as men, look each other in the eyes and speak the truth.“I still don’t understand what Higuain’s unhappy about, because I see a happy lad, involved in the locker room.“We’ll see what happens. If it was up to me, I’d keep him at my house and feed him my dinner.”Share on: WhatsApp Milan, Italy | AFP | Gonzalo Higuain has made up his mind to leave AC Milan, coach Gennaro Gattuso said on Saturday amid speculation linking the striker to Premier League side Chelsea.Higuain joined Milan on a season-long loan from Juventus in July with an option to make the deal permanent, but he has struggled to settle at the San Siro, scoring eight goals in all competitions.The 31-year-old again drew a blank in AC Milan’s 2-0 Italian Cup win over Sampdoria on Saturday as substitute Patrick Cutrone netted a double in extra time.“When a player makes up his mind it becomes hard to convince them otherwise,” said Gattuso of Higuain.“I have a relationship with him that features great honesty, we say things to one another’s face.“At the moment, he’s our player and we’re holding on tightly to him. I don’t know what will happen.”The Argentina international reportedly wants to join his former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.last_img read more

State Reportedly Fast-tracking Rules to Expand Pharmacists’ Services

first_imgAt the request of Republican House Speaker Jose Oliva, of Miami Lakes, the Florida Legislature on March 11 passed the measure (HB 389) expanding the authority of pharmacists. DeSantis signed the bill into law the same day.Under the law, certain pharmacists will be authorized to enter “collaborative pharmacy practice agreements” with doctors that allow pharmacists to treat and manage patients.Those pharmacists will be authorized to treat participating physicians’ patients for conditions including: arthritis; asthma; chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases; Type 2 diabetes; human immunodeficiency virus or acquired immune deficiency syndrome; obesity; or “any other chronic condition adopted in rule.”To enter into the collaborative pharmacy practice agreements, pharmacists must either have doctorates in pharmacy or must have practiced at least five years and have clear and unencumbered licenses. They must also take an additional 20-hour course.The law requires the Board of Pharmacy to develop a set of new rules in order to carry out the changes, including a list of drugs that pharmacists may prescribe. The rules also must include guidelines for advising patients when to seek follow-up care from doctors.There is no word at this time on when the rules could go into effect, and at what level. Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration is seeking to fast-track rules that would potentially expand the health care services that pharmacists are authorized to provide.The move worries some members of a physician-licensing board.Ed Tellechea, general counsel of the Florida Board of Medicine, told members of a committee on Wednesday that “there is pressure” to finalize rules by Aug. 1 to proceed with a new law that would allow certain pharmacists to test patients for flu and streptococcus, as well as to treat patients with chronic illnesses.“The governor’s office would like them (the Board of Pharmacy) to get working on this right away and to get a product as soon as possible, because they want to have the pharmacists available to be able to assist in dealing with the current public-health crisis, and when it flares up again in the fall,” Tellechea said.His remarks came after comments from Board of Medicine Vice Chairman Hector Vila, who believes the Board of Pharmacy should initially draft narrow rules that could be expanded further down the road. Vila also said that he wants the rules to specifically preclude pharmacists from being able to test and treat patients for coronavirus.“This is a pretty big change. And I would move slowly and not try to cut any corners,” said Vila, who is a Tampa-area doctor. “Move very slowly, very deliberately, and then it’s more likely to end up a success.”last_img read more

English pacer Jofra Archer abused on social media! Read what one racist ‘fan’ called…

Powered by Firework England’s World Cup hero, Jofra Archer has condemned the racial abuse he suffers “on a regular basis” – while asking the authorities to take proper action. On Tuesday the 24-year-old speedster uploaded a screenshot of the racial slurs he received on the social media platform Instagram a couple of days ago, citing that he does not understand why someone would make such comments. Advertisement Picture Credit: BBC Sport“I have given a lot of thought about reacting to this and I hope no one else has to deal with stuff like this on a regular basis, it is not ever acceptable and should be addressed properly in my opinion. I will never understand how people feel so free to say these things to another human being, it baffles me,” Archer wrote on his Instagram story along with the screenshot of the racial abuse on Monday evening.Picture Credit: IG/jofraarcherThe Rajasthan Royals bowler, who helped England lift their first ever World Cup last year at home, said the issue needed to be “addressed properly”.Advertisement However, this isn’t the first time that Archer has been subjected to racial abuse. During England’s tour of New Zealand last November, Archer experienced the shameful practice as he scored a second-innings 30 during England’s defeat in Mount Maunganui.“A bit disturbing hearing racial insults today while battling to help save my team. The crowd has been amazing this week except for that one guy. The Barmy Army was good as usual also.” Archer tweeted after the match.Advertisement Following the incident, a police investigation was launched and the New Zealand Cricket Council on January announced that a 28-year-old man had been identified as the perpetrator. The man was then handed a ban from all of the country’s stadiums for two years while being issued a verbal warning for using insulting language by the authorities.But Archer feels that isn’t enough to stop such incidents. The Sussex pacer who is recovering from a stress fracture in his elbow, last week, tweeted a link to a YouTube video which accused him of pulling “race card nonsense” regarding the abuse he suffered in New Zealand.“This is the most rubbish I’ve ever seen on the internet and it makes me sick to my stomach,” he said in the tweet. You may also like:Jofra Archer subjected to racial abuse in innings defeat, New Zealand Cricket issues apologyPolice are investigating alleged racially-aggravated assault at Chelsea’s club academy Advertisementlast_img read more

Chelsea’s greatest treasure is not in the lead

first_imgMOST EXPENSIVE FOOTBALL PLAYERS OF THE ARSENALPierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 70 million euros.Alexandre Lacazette, 70 million euros.Nicolás Pépé, 65 million euros.Mattéo Guendouzi, 50 million euros.Lucas Torreira, 45 million euros. MOST CARE FOOTBALL PLAYERS OF TOTTENHAMHarry Kane, 150 million euros.Christian Eriksen, 90 million euros.Dele Alli, 90 million euros.Heung-min Son, 80 million euros.Tanguy Ndombélé, 65 million euros. Chelsea is not living the most usual season in its recent history. Accustomed to large investments in the last decades since the arrival of Roman Abramovich, the FIFA sanction meant that they could not sign last summer, thus reconverting the reinforcement project and, in turn, readjusting all the movements.Everything happened to be measured with another nuance. Everything happened to be analyzed from another point of view since any departure in the squad could not be replaced with a player outside the club. Finally, the punishment was less, since the TAS redirected its path, modified the sanction and minimized the established period of restriction without being able to sign. Everything remained in just one window of the market without reinforcements, thus opening the possibility that now in January they can have free access to be able to obtain new players from other teams if necessary.Starting from an unusual, almost unexpected context, there has also been a surprising situation. Analyzing the day to day of the club, studying the sports dynamics of Chelsea, soon names such as Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Willian or Pulisic are positioned on the table, all led by Frank Lampard.However, the latest Transfermarkt market update reflects a curious economic situation that contrasts the Stamford Bridge team with respect to its rivals, both in British and European island territory. Are your most media players the most valuable in the market?CHELSEA’S MOST EXPENSIVE FOOTBALL PLAYERSN’Golo Kanté, 100 million euros.Jorginho, 65 million euros.Kepa Arrizabalaga, 60 million euros.Christian Pulisic, 60 million euros.Antonio Rüdiger, 50 million euros. The three players with the highest market value in Chelsea are not offensive players, and within the TOP 5 of this most expensive ranking, it is striking that four of the names that appear little, or nothing, have to do purely with the goal. A significant fact that cancels the assimilated current that the most expensive of football stands in the figures of the great scorers, of the players who define the matches with their scoring sense of smell.The TOP 3 of players presents Kanté and Jorginho (key pieces of the midfield with more defensive than offensive tones) and Kepa (the goalkeeper of the team) as the highest values ​​of the costumes. A curious situation that reflects the reality of the London season. The difference with respect to the rest of the English Big Six teams, in addition, further accentuates this scenario that, for the moment, keeps Lampard in the battle for European positions in the Premier League and I live in the Champions League.LOWEST FOOTBALL PLAYERS OF LIVERPOOLMohamed Salah, 150 million euros.Sadio Mané, 150 million euros.Trent Alexander-Arnold, 110 million euros.Virgil van Dijk, 100 million euros.Alisson, 90 million euros. MANCHESTER CITY FOOTBALL PLAYERSRaheem Sterling, 160 million euros.Kevin De Bruyne, 150 million euros.Leroy Sané, 100 million euros.Bernardo Silva, 100 million euros.Rodrigo, 80 million euros. MANCHESTER UNITED FOOTBALL PLAYERSPaul Pogba, 100 million euros.Marcus Rashford, 80 million euros.Harry Maguire, 70 million euros.David De Gea, 60 million euros.Anthony Martial, 60 million euros. Except, the case of Liverpool (which has some similarity with the Blues, but bases its two most expensive players in the lead), the great stars of English football have a close relationship with the goal. It is not the case of Chelsea. If at first glance names like Salah, Mané, Sterling, De Bruyne, Aubameyang, Lacazette, Kane, Eriksen, Pogba or Rashford (all of them offensive, with important scoring figures every year), in Chelsea names like Kanté, Jorginho or Kepa come out. Almost somewhat antagonistic. Almost an antithesis.A curious difference that reflects the strength of the team, the great value of this Chelsea who has lived different sections this season. After a summer of doubts, several stumbling blocks in the first few weeks, set off an alarm that went off with the arrival of the wind in favor. After a couple of positive months in English and European territory now, on the contrary, they again have tension as they have seen their distance to their persecutors reduced.last_img read more

Windies Impasse … Players reject pay cut ahead of T20 World Cup

first_imgA year and half after the regional team called off a tour to India, there is fresh controversy in West Indies cricket as the players are now opposed to a pay cut ahead of the ICC Twenty20 World Cup. Members of the West Indies squad are demanding that the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) improve the financial terms of their contracts for the tournament and have requested an urgent meeting ahead of the March 8 – April 3 competition, set for India. The concerns, which centres around a 75 per cent-pay cut were outlined in a letter from team captain Darren Sammy to the WICB, which among other things, pointed to a fall-off in guaranteed earnings from the tournament compared to previous arrangements. The players are demanding 100 per cent of prize money and a doubling of match fees, which currently stand at $6,900. Fourteen of the 15 members selected to represent the West Indies in India next month are yet to sign their contracts for the tournament with the deadline set for February 14, 2016 and Sammy, who rejected the credibility of the West Indies Players Association (WIPA), made it clear that the WIPA negotiated terms will not be accepted by the players. One player on the squad has already signed the WICB’s Twenty20 World Cup contract with Sulieman Benn reportedly putting pen to paper. Referring to a US$8-million ICC payment received by the WICB, Sammy urged the Board to revert to a previous remuneration package, which saw players earning 25 per cent of income received by the WICB for participation in ICC tournaments. He noted that under the previous deal, players would be guaranteed US$133,000 as opposed to the US$27,600 under the current terms if they play in all official matches. “We have collectively discussed the remuneration on offer to participate in the T20 World Cup. Considering that 14 out of the 15 man squad are not part of WIPA – and hence have not given authorisation to WIPA to negotiate on our behalf – and a large number do not receive any significant remuneration from WICB at all, we want the opportunity to negotiate fairly the financial terms within the contract,” Sammy’s letter stated. The 2015 World Cup took place with the WI squad remunerated under the terms and conditions that had been in place for the World Cups previous – that is 25 per cent of income received by the WICB for participating in the tournament was distributed to the squad,” Sammy letter was quoted. However, in a response, WICB CEO Michael Muirhead, underlined that the organisation will only negotiate with WIPA on compensation matters, while outlining that the ICC’s new payment cycle which now sees an eight-year distribution arrangement replacing lump sum payments, means that the WICB cannot identify exactly how much it will be paid in relation to the World Twenty20. “… It is not possible to calculate a percentage to be paid to the Squad, as the ICC distribution is no longer being made in the traditional manner. The WICB, in recognition of this, and in an effort at fairness and transparency, allocates 25 per cent of WICB revenues estimated over a four – year period – including ICC distributions – to players, through a guaranteed minimum revenue pool, out of which player payments are made,” he said. “Anything in excess of this minimum over the relevant 4 – year cycle, will be divided solely among the international players, as agreed with WIPA,” added Muirhead’s response to Sammy. Muirhead also noted that the match fee is three times the usual fee and also noted that players would receive 50 percent net of sponsorship generated for the event and 80 percent of prize money, which has seen an 86 percent increase. In an interview with Hitz 92FM yesterday afternoon, Muirhead also noted that they are prepared to send other players to the T20 World Cup if contracts aren’t signed by the February 14 deadline. There were indications that things were coming to a head when suggestive Instagram posts were made by Sammy and Dwyane Bravo. Bravo, in a post with himself, Samuel Badree, Andre Russell and Sammy, stated: “If U all have any idea what’s going on an what we thinking again sad times but lets see how this one will end.”last_img read more

Gov’t Vows to Use Sinoe’s CDF for Damage at GVL

first_imgThe Government has vowed to use Sinoe County’s Development Funds (CDF) to pay for damages caused by rioters at the Golden Verolum-Liberia (GVL) recently.At the Ministry of Information press briefing yesterday, Minister Lewis Brown explained that the relevant government authorities, including the Ministries of Justice and Labor have been directed to work with the GVL to carry out a full assessment of the damages to the concession’s properties. He said the government will use the Social or the County Development Fund to pay for properties damaged by the rioters.Minister Brown said the Liberia National Police (LNP) had begun a thorough search and seizure of operations in Butaw for the looted properties of GVL. During the incident several persons were held hostage, including the Minister of Gender, Julia Duncan-Cassell, who acted as Chairman of the Cabinet in the absence of the President from the country, and the Deputy Minister for Administration at the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Varney Sirleaf.Minister Brown further disclosed that when the rioters or their ring leaders are found and properly identified they will be arrested along with anyone that harbored them. The retrieved looted properties will be returned to the company.“Authorities at the MOJ have also been instructed to press for additional charges including that of economic sabotage against such persons whenever applicable.” According to Min. Brown, the violence in Butaw does not threaten our peace and security. “It undermines our collective livelihood and unfairly portrays the country as an unsafe destination for foreign investments,” he pointed out. The government, he declared, had worked hard to return the country to an enviable place for foreign and domestic investments in order to create much needed jobs and improve the living conditions of its citizenry.The government will decisively and effectively resist any effort by anyone or any group either to alter our course or reverse the collective progress gained over the years by all Liberians, he emphasizedHe stated that “the government will not accept the misuse or abuse of international protocols to undermine its sovereign duties and responsibilities, thereby making it difficult, if not impossible, for her to meet the needs and fulfill the expectations of its people.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgLast week, August 12, several countries, including Liberia, commemorated the International Youth Day to honor the actions of young people around the world to improve their well-being and that of their communities. During the said week, Messengers of Peace (MOP)-Liberia in close collaboration with the Catholic Media Center, Radio Veritas launched ;“Youth Media Education Program”(YMEP).In sic with the theme for this year’s IYD: “Youth Civic Engagement” and in preparation for the Conference on Youth Involvement in Peace and Security, Amman-Jordan, to which the Executive Director of MOP-Liberia has been selected from a list of over ten thousand applicants across the globe, MOP Liberia organized schools debate on highlighting the role as well as the meaningful involvement of young people in peace and security. The theme of the debate: “Should young people be involved in peace and security issues?”We agreed that in actualizing the role of young people in peace and security, it is essential to deal directly with the issues of poverty, cronyism and corruption. Youth should first ask themselves if they are part of the problems or the solution and if they have done enough for their school and society, whether their attitudes and behaviours are in tune with national development.We also agreed the only way to defend peace is to sustain it. Young people, they argued play a cardinal role in maintaining peace and security, therefore, should be meaningfully involved.We concluded our debate and dialogue on the motion that for peace and security to prevail over conflicts, violence and war, government, policy makers and implementers must invest in social security and commit to a strategic partnership with young people.We must teach young people to live in peace and promote a culture that engages youth in poverty alleviation programmes, such as vocational and literary skills development. The issues of corruption, cronyism has to be dealt with at all level. We must also educate the population, especially those in positions of authority on what to do to take the lofty SDGs from rhetoric to reality. As Aristotle said: Good habits formed at youth make all the difference”Messengers of Peace (MOP) – Liberia is keen to empower young people to unleash their potentials and form habits that put them in the right position. We cannot and must not be seen to encourage corrupt practices. Young people must be proud of their achievements and strive for excellence.Peace and Development in Liberia, especially as we cope with the aftermath of Ebola and the countdown to an Ebola free country is essential and achievable if we address issues of poverty, cronyism, bribe and corruption.Our Ebola Educates programme continues and we seek your support. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to the very important visitors to new MOP office located on Broad Street and look forward to others as we partner to eradicate Ebola from our country.Until next week, when we come to you with our concluding article on: “Ebola Educates: Poverty, Cronyism, Corruption and Development-Part IV”, Peace First, Peace above all else, May Peace prevail on earth.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Alleged mastermind slapped with murder charge

first_imgVendor’s murderThirty-two-year-old Roy Stanford of ‘A’ Field, Sophia, alleged mastermind in the shooting death of Bourda Market cheese vendor Troy Ramalho, committed on August 15 during the course of a robbery, was on Friday remanded to prison after being arraigned before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan on a charge of murder.Late last month, two other men who are also said to be implicated in the murder were remanded to jail.During Friday’s court hearing, taxi driver George Patron told the court he was not a part of the heinous crime that was committed, and that he was only a taxi driver who was hired to take the men to the location.The trio are expected to make their next court appearance on September 24.Reports are that, after the killing, Patron allegedly admitted to investigators that he had transported Morris and two other men to the scene of the robbery.The taxi driver reportedly told Police he had picked up the men at Stabroek, Georgetown, and they had asked him to drive to Robb Street, Georgetown.He claimed he was told to wait for the men to return, and was instructed to park on Alexander Street, between Regent Street and North Road.According to him, after the men had excited the vehicle, he heard gunshots, after which they came running towards the car. He reportedly told Police the following day he was given $40,000 by the men, who are known to him.last_img read more

Messi hits four as Barca maintain perfect start

first_img0Shares0000Barcelona’s Lionel Messi (L) vies with Eibar’s David Junca during their match in Barcelona on September 19, 2017 © AFP / PAU BARRENAMADRID, Spain, Sep 19 – Lionel Messi added four more goals to his soaring early season tally as a much-changed Barcelona maintained their 100 percent start to La Liga by routing Eibar 6-1 on Tuesday.Paulinho and Denis Suarez also netted for the second consecutive game as Barca stretched their lead at the top of La Liga to seven points over Real Madrid, who host Real Betis on Wednesday. “That Messi scored four goals now isn’t news,” said Barca boss Ernesto Valverde after the Argentine’s 43rd career hat-trick.“He has done it so many nights, in so many games. To keep repeating it is the most difficult thing.“He is an extraordinary player. I have run out of words for him.”Messi played in a more central role as Valverde heavily rotated his side for the first time since taking charge with Luis Suarez dropping to the bench among six changes from Saturday’s hard-fought 2-1 win at Getafe.And contrary to their fortunes last season, Barca’s back-ups proved Valverde can take the luxury of resting some of his star names with Paulinho particularly impressive on his first start.Messi opened the scoring in nonchalant fashion from the penalty spot on 21 minutes after Nelson Semedo had been felled by an ungainly challenge from Alejandro Galvez.Paulinho’s 40-million-euro ($48 million) signing from Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande was one of a series of moves that drew stinging criticism for Barca’s board following Neymar’s world-record departure for Paris Saint-Germain.However, after coming off the bench to score the winner at Getafe, Paulinho powered home his second Barca goal from Denis Suarez’s corner seven minutes before half-time.Paulinho also played his part in Barca’s third with a cute dummy that freed Messi and, when his shot was parried by Marko Dmitrovic, Denis Suarez fired home the rebound.Sergi Enrich reduced the arrears when he capitalised on some sloppy Barca defending to slot home David Junca’s cross.However, Messi quickly restored Barca’s three-goal lead with a lovely measured finish from the edge of the box.The five-time world player of the year completed his hat-trick just after the hour mark by prodding through Dmitrovic’s legs from Paulinho’s pass.And he added his 12th goal in just eight games this season three minutes from time after a neat one-two with Aleix Vidal.Valencia’s Simone Zaza, pictured in January 2017, bagged a hat-trick against Malaga © AFP/File / JOSE JORDAN– Anger fuels Zaza –Barca lead second-placed Sevilla, who host Las Palmas on Wednesday, by five points with Valencia now just a point further adrift as they moved up to third thanks to Simone Zaza’s seven-minute hat-trick in a 5-0 thrashing of Malaga.By contrast, a fifth straight defeat to start the season sees Malaga slip to bottom of the table and plunges coach Michel into further danger of becoming the second La Liga boss to be sacked this term.“I am tremendously proud of the performance of the players. It is a joy to be able to enjoy it with our fans,” said Valencia coach Marcelino.Santi Mina got the rout started after just 17 minutes with a neat header from Carles Soler’s cross.Zaza then completed his first ever hat-trick with three clinical close-range finishes between the 55th and 62nd minute before substitute Rodrigo rounded off the scoring.And the former Juventus striker shrugged off a bust-up with Marcelino after being dropped for Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Levante.“I didn’t have anything to prove,” Zaza told BeIN Sports Spain.“What happened on Saturday is already forgotten, I think it is normal that a player is angry when he doesn’t play.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Figures show just how popular the Donegal GAA jersey is

first_imgTHE DONEGAL jersey has rarely been more popular than in the last two of years.At the launch of the new Donegal kit on Monday, it was revealed that Donegal’s jersey sales have been second only to Dublin over the last 30 months.All-Ireland champions Dublin led the way for kit sales by manufacturers O’Neill’s Sportswear, but Donegal’s winning of the Ulster title in each of the last two summers has clearly had a big impact. Donegal County Board Chairman Mick McGrath told Monday’s launch that 20,000 jerseys had been sold in the last two years.“They have been sold all over the world and all over Ireland and the UK,” Mr McGrath said. “There is a huge fan base out there. There is a big fan base in Donegal we are progressing. There is a huge amount of work going on and there are exciting things happening in Donegal.”Donegal’s deal with O’Neill’s includes royalties off each item sold meaning the sales of jerseys and other official team wear has the potential to be a good money spinner. McGrath said that the building at the Donegal GAA Training Centre in Convoy is almost ready for opening while the County Board have embarked on a big fundraising drive that includes a €100 ticket draw that has the first prize of a house in Dublin.The new jerseys are again emblazoned with the logo of main sponsors KN Group and tier 2 sponsors, Abbey Hotel.O’Neill’s Sportswear’s Kieran Kennedy said: “We’re looking forward to working together in 2020. O’Neill’s have a tradition of employing skilled personnel from across the north-west and we are embedded in this area. We have 736 people employed in Strabane and 950 on the island of Ireland. Our motto is to think global and employ local.”Figures show just how popular the Donegal GAA jersey is was last modified: November 19th, 2019 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:Declan Bonnerdonegal county boardDonegal GAAMick McGrathO’Neill’s Sportswearlast_img read more

Darwinism Produces Irrational Hate

first_img(Visited 409 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享26 Darwinism should be opposed simply on the grounds of what it does to people’s sensibilities and manners.On CEH’s Twitter feed @crevinfo, we occasionally have to block abusive responders. We give fair warning with the following notice:Each violation produces an additional warning, but this usually just makes the abusive person angrier until they blow off in a cloud of smoke. Invariably, the abusive tweets come from Darwinists who mock creation, using any or all the fallacies in the Baloney Detector. Judging from the language, some are probably uninformed scoffers living in their parents’ basement in their underwear with nothing better to do than mock creation, religion, or whatever else their subculture tells them to hate.Some, however, are working scientists. One might hope scientists would be experienced in the practice of civil discourse during disputes about observational evidence, but that skill must not be part of the curriculum of some. They may start with civility—as if wearing a Greek happy mask—but it usually doesn’t take long for the mask to come off and the reptilian parts of their brains to kick in (22 Jan 2019).A recent case in point is Ray Simpson, a student at Yale earning a PhD in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, who is also an illustrator of Fishes of the Western Atlantic. Illustrating beautifully-designed fish is a worthy enterprise, and it appears from his website and Twitter page that he does great work. Something in his background or education, however, triggers wrath when Darwinism is questioned. Here’s how he responded to our 9 November 2019 article, “Shoving Fossils onto Darwin’s Timeline,” which we tweeted as:CEH: Darwinists shove fossils onto the geologic column kicking and screaming. We show examples from dinosaurs and mammals. Because of the poor fit, the Darwinians have to make up just-so stories of elaborate credulity, like the “pecan pie period.”We backed up that tweet with specific examples in the article. Here is the Twitter dialogue that ensued:Simpson: Please identify the modern kinds of organism found in the Cambrian Explosion, or explain using the creation model why we find no modern kinds of marine organisms in this typical shallow water fauna. No fossil is “forced” in to the column. All Cambrian creatures are BASAL taxa!CEH: Did you read the article? The rules require addressing questions or comments to the contents of a specific article [rules posted]. Please read: [link to article].The article contains nothing about the Cambrian explosion, so his first tweet was not related to the article. There was also nothing about “kinds” as opposed to phyla. He smells a creationist. The mask starts coming off. He continued:Simpson: Maybe answer my question, which was nowhere in that pseudoscience article. WHAT kinds of life living today were alive in the Cambrian? Remember you don’t believe in evolution so kinds can’t be phylum!CEH: That article was not about the Cambrian explosion, but I’m not sure you, an evolutionist, want to go there! 20 phyla appearing suddenly w/o ancestors? I suppose you know about sponges, ctenophores, corals, tardigrades, annelids? Not to mention arthropods, mollusks and chordates.Simpson: They were PHYLA (not kind), and the STEM members of each phylum. Do you know what the stem member of Chordata looks like? It looks like a lancelet, which is a primitive chordate. I certainly DO want to go there, as the primitive life of the Cambrian fits perfectly into evolutionSimpson: Actually there are as many phyla originating in the Cambrian as there are after the Cambrian, and lots of phyla that originate in the Precambrian. There are many phyla that arise in the Cambrian and go extinct soon after. Not sure how this fits creationism???CEH: So you believe in miracles. Instant complex body plans with organs, systems, eyes, articulating limbs, digestive systems, central nervous systems. I don’t have enough faith to believe in your miracles. Neither did atheist Lee Strobel. [Link to episode from The Case for a Creator about the Cambrian explosion.]Simpson mischaracterized the Cambrian explosion, which world experts since Darwin still agree is a major problem for evolutionary theory. But all arguments about the facts of the Cambrian explosion are now fruitless. Simpson goes into attack mode against his hated foes, creationism and the Bible. In violation of the rules, he is way off topic from the original article, and is forcing the discussion toward his preferred direction (see Shifting the Burden of Proof). One clever propaganda ploy is to accuse your opponent of propaganda. Nothing in our tweets so far constitutes a Straw Man fallacy.Simpson: Strawman… none of those are miracles. None of those body plans were “instant”, nor just popped out of nowhere. You believe in lots of miracles, like how freshwater life survived your magic flood or how giant waves didn’t capsize a rudderless barge, or removing all the heatSimpson: You didn’t address my question AGAIN. Why are you creationists so quick to change the subject and post videos. Do your own talking you fraud. Can you please identify ANY modern KIND of organism in the Cambrian Explosion? Where are all the fish, crab, snails, whales, starfish?CEH: strike oneSimpson: No answer huh? You have no idea where all the fish, crabs, lobsters, clams, gastropods, and corals are in the Cambrian, because the Cambrian was 500 million years ago and those creatures didn’t exist yet! What’s your magic flood‘s explanation? Typical creationist threats to banHe has now broken all three rules for dialogue with CEH. He didn’t read the article; he didn’t mention anything from the article, and he calls his opponent a fraud. The mask is off, and the hate appears.CEH: strike two.Simpson: Strike 3, you’re a coward who knows nothing about evolution.We get that response often. When trying to mention facts that contradict Darwinism, mockers respond that we “know nothing about evolution” (see Ridicule, Generalities, Ad Hominem in the Baloney Detector). Since one cannot have a dialogue with a blowtorch, we have to block Mr. Simpson, wishing there had been an opportunity for civil discourse with an expert on Atlantic fish.CEH: Well, you were warned. I hope you can get some therapy for your irrational hatred. Jesus Christ said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Peace.This kind of Twitter interaction could be illustrated with many instances.We were able to print this thread because it did not contain the profanity often included in similar dead-end discussions. What is it that makes Darwinists so full of hate, pride and arrogance? Try as we might to have a respectful conversation about facts, many pro-Darwinism responders cannot abide by common rules of civility.Perhaps it is the nature of social media to make people write with more ferocity against faceless opponents. But we do give fair warning that only civil dialogue will be permitted. And it has to be about something specific in one of our articles. We try to hold them to the rules, asking sometimes repeatedly if they actually read the article under consideration. It’s often doubtful from their tweets that they did read it, and if they did, that they understood it. Their tweets, rather, show that pre-existent hatred was triggered by the mere existence of a voice skeptical of Darwin. Is it surprising that Darwinism produces irrational hate? How could a godless belief in an amoral, unguided process that celebrates ‘fitness’ do otherwise? Darwinism gives license to the worst instincts of man, because it appears to remove all responsibility to a just and moral Creator.Jesus said you would “know them by their fruits.”  The Apostle Paul listed the fruit of the Spirit as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control (Galatians 5:22-23). He contrasted these with with the works of the flesh, which include not only sexual sins, but also “enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions” which have roots in pride. He warned Timothy that in the last days, “people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God” as well as sexually immoral (II Timothy 3:1-4).While it is not pleasant to face the ongoing wrath of Darwinists, in a way it is very satisfying. The righteous are known not only by the friends they keep, but also by those who hate them. Paul saw his persecutors as haters who would have been shouting “Crucify him!” at Jesus. He was grateful to God to take some blows in his stead, because of the greater good that God was accomplishing through him (Colossians 1:24ff):Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God that was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known, the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.last_img read more

New Mineral Resources Minister to be sworn in today

first_img23 September 2015 The new minister of Mineral Resources, Mosebenzi Joseph Zwane, will be sworn into office today at the Union Buildings.This comes after President Jacob Zuma announced a minor cabinet reshuffle on Tuesday evening.Ngoako Ramatlhodi will take the role of Public Service and Administration minister which became available after Minister Collins Chabane died in a motor accident in March.Zwane is a Member of Parliament who has previously served as MEC in the portfolios of Agriculture and Rural Development as well as Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs in the Free State provincial government.It means that Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa, who had been the acting Minister for Public Service, will now step down as Ramatlhodi takes up the position.President Zuma thanked Mthethwa for temporarily filling the post and wished both Zwane and Ramathlodi well in their new portfolios.Mining in South AfricaAs minister of mineral resources, Zwane’s role will be central to keeping stability in an industry that increases South Africa’s global competiveness. The country produces the highest amount of manganese in the world, and South Africa remains the largest gold exporter on the continent.Mining plays a vital role in the country. According to business news website, Moneyweb: “Mining accounts for more than half of the nation’s exports and employs about 440 000 people.”Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more

eLearning to address new challenges in controlled environment animal production

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The animal industries are facing challenges and need a trained workforce.Animal production is the largest sector of agriculture and plays an important role in the U.S. economy. Over the past decades, mechanization development and economic pressure have driven commercial animal production into large-scale and industrialized operations for high production efficiency. The large-scale animal production is facing significant challenges due to their environmental impact, climate change and variability, animal welfare issues, and increasing energy costs. Facility and environmental control technologies play a critical role in animal production and can potentially provide solutions to these emerging challenges. The animal industry needs a competent workforce of professionals who are trained with new knowledge in emerging technologies for animal facility and environmental control. This workforce will thus be able to address the challenges related to animal production and to transform the industries’ challenges into opportunities for sustainable operations.Existing trainings do not meet the new needs.A course in Environmental Control for Agricultural Structures is traditionally offered in many agricultural and biological engineering programs at land-grant universities to meet the animal industries’ needs for environmental control technologies. Unfortunately, fewer universities offer the course than in the past, which means many students do not have the opportunity to take such a course. Furthermore, the existing courses primarily focus on meeting thermal comfort needs of animals or plants through ventilation in conjunction with heating and/or cooling. The new challenges facing animal agriculture are not being addressed. OSU is developing new trainings on challenges in enrolled environment animal productionSignificant research developments have occurred in the past decade in areas of mitigation and adaptation to the climate change; effects of indoor environment on animal health and welfare, food safety, and farm biosecurity; energy efficiency analysis of animal buildings; and renewable energy use and production on farms. There is a critical need to capitalize on recent research findings to develop new teaching modules addressing current and future challenges. OSU is leading a multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional team to address this critical need by advancing educational curriculum materials in controlled environment animal production (eCEAP).New eLearning educational modules are being developed in four emerging challenge areas related to animal production: climate change, sustainable energy, food safety, and animal health and welfare. Climate changeThe projected climate change will have significant impacts on animal production. Many scientists expect increases in heat-related morbidity and mortality. Sustainability of current animal production systems in a warming climate is a legitimate concern. Higher temperatures and humidity directly cause animal heat stress. Extreme weather conditions require more resilient livestock systems. Therefore, new designs and management of environmental control systems of animal production facilities are needed in consideration of the climate change factors. New indoor environmental control technology and strategies for both abatement and adaptation to global climate change and variability are needed. The associated educational materials are needed to prepare future workforce of the animal industry. The educational focuses of this module are strategies for cooling animal environments and the associate ventilation needs. Sustainable energyModern animal production systems raise animals in buildings with ventilation, heating, and/or cooling environmental control that uses large amounts of natural gas or electrical energy. As the energy prices increase, sustainability of modern farm operation comes into a question. On the other hand, farms have the resources to generate on-farm renewable energy, such as biogas, geothermal energy, and solar and wind energy. It is important to develop energy efficient facilities with renewable on-farm energy systems for future animal production. The educational focuses of the module are (1) methods and tools for comprehensive energy audits; (2) methods to reduce the use of energy and water, therefore reducing GHG emission; (3) on-farm renewable energy systems, and (4) new building and environmental control systems using renewable energy.Food safety issues have caused significant public health concerns. Salmonella and E-coli outbreak investigations have linked the pathogen sources to animal production. A collaborating research between researchers of OSU and Michigan State University has demonstrated thermal environment of animal facilities directly correlated with Salmonella prevalence and thermal environmental control is a cost effective pre-harvest intervention for Salmonella prevalence in swine Therefore, it is beneficial to address the food safety problem at the source using pre-harvest environmental control prevention during animal production. In addition, indoor air quality studies of housing facilities concluded that airborne microbial contaminations (i.e., bioaerosols) within buildings lead to animal and human exposures. Moreover, bioaerosols may transport off the farm sites, promoting disease propagation and outbreak. Ventilation directly affects bioaerosol concentration and distribution. The educational focuses of this module are sources, transport, and control of pathogens in animal facilities and outdoors in neighboring communities and the associated environmental control technologies for food safety and animal health.Animal welfare and health play a critical role in the sustainability, viability, and competitiveness of the U.S. animal industry. Enhancing animal welfare throughout the production chain remains a challenge. In animal grow-out cycles, environmental stresses compromise animal welfare and productivity. Enhanced or alternative housing designs are being implemented as solutions to improve animal welfare. The educational focuses of this module are the animal welfare issues, assessment tools and methods, and facilities and management practices for improvement.last_img read more

Netflix on the iPhone? Yes, Please!

first_imgTags:#Apple#mobile#Multimedia#NYT#Video Services#web Recently, Netflix sent out a survey to select subscribers in order to determine interest in an iPhone application for streaming movies via mobile phones. According to the survey’s wording, the proposed app would be Wi-Fi only and would offer the same content that the Netflix “Watch Instantly” service provides. Currently, subscribers are able to stream movies and TV shows to their PCs and Macs as well as to game consoles like the Xbox 360 and certain set-top boxes like the Roku. However, plans for an iPhone application were far out on the company’s roadmap last anyone heard. This past September, for example, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings told Reuters that an iPhone application would “come over time, but nothing in the short term.” Now insiders are wondering if something has changed the company’s mind. And could that something be the iPad?Netflix Asks Customers: How Do You Feel About the iPhone?A blog post on the Netflix news-tracking resource Hacking Netflix offers up the full text of the survey, which reads:Imagine that Netflix offers its subscribers the ability to instantly watch movies & TV episodes on their iPhone. The selection availability to instantly watch includes some new releases, lots of classics and TV episodes. There are no advertisements or trailers, and movies start in as little as 30 seconds. You can fast-forward, rewind, and pause or watch again. The movies & TV episodes you instantly watch are included in your Netflix membership for no additional fee.Whenever you want to instantly watch content on your iPhone, your iPhone must be connected to a Wi-Fi network (such as one you might have at home or at work, or in public places like coffee shops, book stores, hotels, airports, etc.)If this functionality were available, how likely would you or someone in your household be to instantly watch movies & TV episodes on your iPhone via a Wi-Fi network?”Although this is an unofficial source for the news, the official Netflix blog links to the Hacking Netflix site in their blog’s sidebar, which at least somewhat speaks to the legitimacy of the content posted there. If Netflix Supports iPhone, it Supports iPad Too So why is Netflix considering an iPhone application now? This renewed interest is intriguing, especially when it comes only six months after CEO Hastings told reporters that “we will get to mobile eventually, including the iPhone.” At the time, he stated the company’s interest was more focused on getting Netflix content onto video game consoles and TVs. With the new crop of Internet-connected television sets, there has been plenty to keep the company busy in that regard. A likely reason for the new direction may have to do with the impending launch of the Apple iPad. The thin, slate-like computer, sometimes described as “a big iPod Touch,” is predicted to do well according to numerous technology analysts. Already, major media publications are looking into iPad versions of their print and web content, with the hope that the device will help them tap into a new audience of content consumers. Perhaps Netflix wants to do the same. It’s worth noting that the iPad will run the same mobile operating system as Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch, so although the survey doesn’t specify this, an iPhone app could run on the iPad just as easily as it does on the iPhone.What’s Required to Make this WorkThe only question now is how will the company build it? The iPhone doesn’t support Adobe Flash, the technology that’s typically used on the web for streaming video. However, that’s no matter to Netflix. They opted to go with Microsoft’s Flash competitor, Silverlight, when they launched their web streaming “Watch Instantly” service for Mac (and, unofficially, some Linux) users back in October 2008. An interesting side note about Silverlight? It alreadyworks on the iPhone. In fact, in November 2009, Microsoft User Experience Platform Manager Brian Goldfarb demonstrated Silverlight streaming on the iPhone during a live presentation at Microsoft’s Professional Developer Conference. Reports quoted him as saying that Microsoft “worked with Apple” to create this iPhone-ready server-side solution, much to the surprise of Apple-watchers everywhere. Goldfarb later clarified his statement, saying that he meant Microsoft did all the work on the technology, but he did add that they “made sure Apple was comfortable with it.” However, Silverlight is not yet enabled on the iPhone, so the true level of comfort Apple may or may not have is still undetermined. But then again, one never knows what Apple has in store for the future. Assuming Apple was to give the green light to Silverlight, Netflix wouldn’t have many code changes to make in order to transform their database of movies and TV shows into iPhone-ready content. Of course, without official acknowledgement from Netflix itself, their future plans for the iPhone are just speculation at this point. We’ve reached out to multiple company representatives but have yet to hear back by press time. If we receive word, we’ll update this post with details. Update: CEO Hastings did have this to say about the company’s plans for an iPhone/iPad app on January’s earnings call, which makes it sound like the company’s plans have not changed since September:“We haven’t yet done or submitted an iPhone application. We are optimistic that…it would be approved…Of course that application if it works on the iPhone, it would work on the iPad. It is not a huge priority for us because we are so focused on the larger screen. Until we get our TV ubiquity and our Blue-Ray ubiquity…we would next turn to the small screen…It is something we will get around to but it is not in the near-term.” Related Posts 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex…center_img sarah perez 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

Siding and Interior Finish Work in New Hampshire

first_imgQuarter-sawn spruce clapboardsStarting in late July, we turned our attention to the exterior and specifically the siding. While we considered trying to tackle this ourselves, we hired Eric again. Besides his skill and experience, he also had staging and a siding nail gun. Eric took the lead on the entire siding project. I helped on and off the staging and Kyra (plus her dad) did tons of staining.We had already ordered the siding in 2013 and stored it over the winter. The siding was quarter-sawn spruce clapboards from Ward Clapboard Mill in Vermont. Although quarter-sawn clapboards are more expensive than plain-sawn, they are more stable and less prone to cupping. We were willing to pay for this high quality, and balanced it by choosing Ward’s cottage grade, which includes blemishes and knots. This area on the west side of the house shows a large awning window with stained spruce clapboards, stained pine corner boards, and pine window trim finished with Vermont Natural Coatings exterior wood finish.Kyra was concerned that the cottage grade might look junky, but we liked how it turned out on another house project we had been following online (“Building a super-insulated Vermont home”). We also saved enough by choosing cottage grade that we paid to have the clapboards pre-primed — a good call that meant huge time savings for us. We installed the clapboards rough side out, and it looks awesome.The other big decision was what to do about a rainscreen.The siding project went from early August until mid-September 2014. Kyra and I also built overhangs over the two large fixed south-facing windows.We knew this was an important feature to build into the exterior, but weren’t sure about what materials to use. We ruled out 1×4 furring strips because we thought they would push out the siding too much and complicate the window trim. Ripping plywood sheets into strips was an option, but we settled on products from Cor-A-Vent, partially because we had seen them used successfully at the Up Hill House. We used Sturdi-Strips and SV-3 Siding Vent to create a â…œ-inch rainscreen gap, vented at both the top and bottom of the wall. Editor’s note: This is Part 4 of a multi-part blog series on the construction of Brian and Kyra’s home in New Hampshire. Here is a link to Part 5: Finishing Touches for a Pretty Good House in New Hampshire. Keeping the waterline from freezingOur well contractor was scheduled to come back in September to install the submerged well pump and well tank, and to hook it all up. Before this could happen, I had to do some stressful research and decision-making about what kind of heat cable to get.Because the water line was already hooked into the well casing and backfilled, we would have to push the heat cable into the water line from the house. The water line ran about 175 feet from the house to the well with some sweeping turns around the house and back towards the well. We made the call to get a 120-foot in-pipe heat cable that would protect the most vulnerable part of the water line starting at the house. (The 50 feet + near the well was buried deeper.)Our well contractor suggested a certain heat cable product, but I wasn’t able to find enough information about the product to make me feel comfortable with the purchase. After some internet research, I came across a company based in Canada called Heat-Line. We went with the 120-volt version of their Retro-Line, 120 feet long. It cost almost $2,000, but we didn’t have other good options. Pushing the 120-foot heat cable into the water line was straightforward. After all the stress, the work was completed in mid-September. ARTICLES BY BRIAN POST Building a Small House in the White MountainsPouring the Slab and Framing the WallsWindows, Housewrap, and Roofing Underlayment Finishing Touches for a Pretty Good House in New Hampshire Kyra and her dad working on the trim for one of the big south facing windows. These are fixed windows.After this was done, I sealed up the rough window openings with canned spray foam and we started working on window trim. Kyra’s dad came for the first of many visits at this time, helping on various projects with his woodworking skills.We liked the look of simple pine trim and went with 12-inch pine boards for the jambs and 4-inch pine boards for the casing. The window trim work required a lot of shimming and other fitting work, but it came out well. Kyra working on the east door overhang.To protect the exterior doors and entrance areas, we also hired a friend, Ray, to help us build protective roofs. We used Douglas fir posts, 2x6s, tongue-and-groove pine boards, and pine trim. We also used some leftover synthetic roofing underlayment and small metal roofing panels. Exhaust-only ventilationBased on the recommendation of our foundation/shell contractor, we went with an exhaust ventilation setup consisting of Panasonic WhisperGreen bath fans with Panasonic passive air inlets. We eventually settled on a WhisperGreen model that could run on continuous levels as low as 30 cfm and then be boosted (for set time periods or until turned “off”) up to 80 cfm.One fan was installed in the full bath upstairs and one in the half bath downstairs. Before insulation and drywall, we installed 4-inch rigid duct through the walls in the fan locations and the needed plastic duct for two passive air inlets (one downstairs and one in the main bedroom). The Panasonic passive air inlets are rated for 12 to 18 cfm, so we figured it would be OK to start with two, giving us up to 36 cfm of makeup air.Later, when we first powered on the fans with our electrician, we figured out that the two passive air inlets were not providing enough makeup air. The house was getting depressurized even with one fan running at only 30 cfm. This was happening because the house is so tight and the passive air inlets don’t allow as much air as advertised. (One online review said they tested at 10 cfm). For various reasons, adjusting our ventilation setup would be an ongoing theme as time went on; more on this later. Cabinets and interior stairsWe made good (but slow) interior progress over the winter and into spring 2014. The snow bank on the north side of the house finally melted in early May 2014; we continued with interior work and turned some attention to outside.Cabinet material stacked in the kitchen and ready to assemble.We had ordered ready-to-assemble cabinets from Barker Cabinets and kept everything stacked in the kitchen. We decided on Barker rather than a local cabinet company because the cabinets were higher quality for the price and the online ordering process was also straightforward. Brian Post is a photographer and website builder. He lives in Jackson, New Hampshire with his wife, Kyra Salancy, and a fluffy black dog. When not working on their house, Brian and Kyra enjoy climbing and skiing in the White Mountains. Space heat is all electricWe scheduled the installation of the ductless minisplit for early June 2014. One of these on the first floor would be our main heat source for the entire house. As backup on extremely cold nights (or if the minisplit malfunctioned) we planned to install small Stiebel Eltron wall-mounted electric heaters in each bathroom and bedroom, as well as a couple more in the open downstairs area.We went back and forth about which size minisplit to get, but eventually decided on a Mitsubishi FH12NA. While our Energy Star HERS rater suggested we might be better going up one size, we thought the FH12NA would meet our needs. Fortunately, the installation was completed in time to take advantage of a $500 rebate from the state of New Hampshire. Soffits and small protective roofsWe rehired Eric, one of the workers who helped the foundation/shell contractor, to take the lead on finishing the soffit. We used 1×8 tongue-and-groove pine, treated with an exterior wood finish from Vermont Natural Coatings. It came out great, and we really liked the natural pine look. We used 1×8 tongue and groove pine for the soffit. The exterior unit of the ductless minisplit. We built the small roof to protect the unit from rain and snow coming off the north side of the main roof.I helped Ray build the first roof and he helped us get started on the second. We took it from there and would end up using the same concept for overhangs over our large south facing windows and the exterior unit of the ductless minisplit. Finishing joists and floorsKyra and I, with help from her dad, continued on various interior projects. I spent multiple days on a stepladder with a face mask and eye protection working on the rough-sawn hemlock floor joists. I used a wire brush to clean them up and did some light sanding. We installed two clear coats of Vermont Natural Coatings. We used Southern yellow pine for the stair treads. We’ll make sure to install the skirtboards first next time.Kyra and her dad also worked on the stairs. The kitchen floor after the application of concrete stain and sealer.In early November 2014, we started finishing our concrete first floor. We had narrowed down our options to hiring a professional to grind and polish the slab or staining and sealing ourselves. Kyra and I decided this would be a good job to take on ourselves and save several thousand dollars. From Eco Safety Products we purchased several concrete finishing products, including their etcher and cleaner, stain, and finish/sealer.The first step was to test colors. We did this in an area that would be hidden later; we decided on the “Black Granite” color for most of the floor area.We tackled the kitchen first so that we could install cabinets before moving on to another floor section. The work was very labor-intensive. The steps consisted of: scrape/sand, clean floor with Simple Green, use etching/cleaning product, let floor dry, install two coats of stain, let dry, and install five or more coats of the finish/sealer.This work also required a lot of vacuuming, taping, rinsing, and the somewhat impossible task of keeping random debris and dog hair off the floor. The work was tiring, but we were happy with how the floors were turning out. We finished the kitchen and saved the other floor areas for later. The rough-sawn 2×12 hemlock floor joists were cleaned with a wire brush, sanded lightly, and protected with a clear finish. The winter of 2013-2014 started without much snow, but progressed into an extended period of cold and snow from February through March. Normally, we’d take advantage of this on skis, but the house project was occupying most of our attention. Drywall, window trim, and interior doorsThe drywall crew completed hanging, taping, and mudding the drywall in early February 2014. We went with rounded corners and the crew did a great job. The interior minisplit unit is on an interior wall in the central part of the first floor. Behind the wall is a small mechanical area, which allowed for easy runs of the lines to the exterior. Septic system and spruce floorsAs spring turned into summer, the septic system was finally inspected, approved, and backfilled.We continued on various interior and exterior projects. I ripped the Vycor Plus flashing tape off the exterior doors, spray foamed any gaps in the rough openings, used Siga Wigluv tape on the exterior part of the rough openings, patched up the housewrap, and installed some pine trim. The first room we finished was the second bedroom.The 2×6 tongue-and-groove spruce used for the second-story floors had gotten pretty beat up during the main construction phase. We rented a commercial orbital floor sander and that (along with some hand-held orbital sander work) did a good job of cleaning up the floors. We used a product from Vermont Natural Coatings (Polywhey Floor Finish) to finish the spruce floors.Kyra and I decided to finish the second bedroom first so it could serve as an initial finished room. We installed some pine baseboard and Kyra tackled the painting.We started by installing horizontal lengths of SV-3 siding vent along the bottom of the wall. Then we stapled the vertical Sturdi-Strips over the 16-inch-on-center studs. The Sturdi-Strips were doubled up on the corners. We installed the pine corner boards before the siding. The goal: an occupancy permitOver the rest of November and December, we continued on interior projects that would help us get an occupancy permit:Kyra and her dad put together the cabinet parts that we would install and secure to the walls later.Kyra and I built simple open vanities for the bathrooms.We had recently hired contractors to tile the shower and bathroom floors, Kyra and her dad installed the shower door.Our plumbing contractor came back to install and hookup the toilets, sinks, and hot water heater.I used my climbing skills and equipment to replace the plumbing vent flashing on the roof as it had a slight leak from a poor install job.Speaking of hot water, we decided on a short 30-gallon Rheem electric-resistance water heater because it was cheap, would meet our needs, and would fit in the mechanical room under the stairs.At this point in the house project, we were working hard towards getting the certificate of occupancy (CO), which we thought we needed to move in. While we had an affordable rental situation with friends, I was really itching to move into the house so we could stop paying rent and not have to commute back and forth. Editor’s note: This is the fourth in a series of blogs chronicling the design and construction of a house owned by Brian Post and Kyra Salancy. The first blog in the series was titled Building a Small House in the White Mountains. RELATED ARTICLES Up Hill HousePretty Good, Not So Big Maine HouseThe Potwine Passivhaus in AmherstKicking the Tires on a Passivhaus ProjectThe Pretty Good HouseMartin’s Pretty Good House ManifestoGreen Building for Beginners There was no functioning kitchen, but the house had heat and functioning bathrooms (see Image #3, below). One day, I met with the Jackson building inspector about our remaining tasks and found out it was OK for us to move in without the CO. That was all I needed to hear.Kyra was worried that the house wouldn’t be comfortable to live in yet, but I convinced her to go for it. In a matter of days, we moved all our belongings up to the house and spent our first night on the floor of the guest bedroom. It was December 23, 2014. We had a long ways to go, but it felt great to be in the house. We were also focusing on the upstairs: painting, installing pine trim, and hanging interior doors. We were trying to keep costs down, but did get affordable solid pine wood doors. With finishing products, we went with no/low VOC and more natural products whenever we could. This included using Vermont Natural Coatings PolyWhey finish on all the pine trim. This Panasonic FV-08VKS3 WhisperGreen bath fan was installed in the upstairs bathroom. The exhaust duct has a short, straight run to the east wall. We installed this fan in a frame below the ceiling so we wouldn’t break our air barrier. The 2x4s will later be trimmed with pine boards.last_img read more

India vs England: Virat Kohli walks off with stiff back, returns after treatment

first_imgIndia captain Virat Kohli was forced to miss the on-field action for a few overs during the last session of Day 3 of the second Test against England at Lord’s on Saturday.Kohli, who also suffered a sore back during the tour of South Africa earlier this year, was seen spending some time off the field during the third session.While Chris Woakes and Johnny Bairstow were tormenting the Indian bowlers, Kohli had to leave his troops to treat his sore back. Reports suggest that he was feeling pain in his lower back and that is where he perhaps received treatment.Kohli scored a gritty century in the first Test against England at Edgbaston, which was also his maiden hundred in the country.The innings helped Kohli exorcise the demons of 2014 England tour, when he scored only 134 runs in 10 innings. He also scored a half-century in the second innings of Edgbaston Test.INDIA VS ENGLAND 2ND TEST DAY 3: FOLLOW LIVE UPDATESDespite Kohli’s best effort, India lost the match by 31 runs and went 1-0 down in the five-match series.Lord’s Test, a crucial one for India in the series, started on a bad note for the visitors when the dry conditions of Lord’s went under a makeover after the first day was washed out due to rain.The second day was also marred by rain but the toss finally took place, which was won by Joe Root as England decided to bowl first.Kohli and his batting troops once again faltered as India were bowled out for just 107 runs. On the third day in London, the sun shone bright as England took the field to bat.advertisementEven as the bowlers gave India early breakthroughs with Mohammed Shami being the pick of the lot, Bairstow and Woakes stitched together a huge partnership to peg India back again.With the Test slipping out of India’s hands, Kohli’s troubled back could mean even bigger problems. Even during the second session of the day, Kohli sat out for some time but it is not confirmed if that was due to the back problem.Kohli returned to the field in the 71st over with a smile on his face, perhaps indicating that he was fine, but it remains to be seen how problematic this re-occurence of the back problem could be.During the South Africa tour as well, Kohli went off the field during the second T20I with what he later termed as a glute strain. He later missed the third and final T20I of the series citing a sore back.Ahead of the England tour, Kohli also suffered from a neck sprain that saw him missing out on a county experience with Surrey.last_img read more

Trudeau leans on Trump to help Canadians detained in China at G20

first_imgOTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is leaving for a major international summit in Japan this morning, hoping to make progress, or at least find allies, in a multi-front dispute with China.The G20 leaders’ summit in Osaka comes at a critical moment for Trudeau, months ahead of the October election and as Canada continues to push for the release of two Canadians in China’s custody — Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor.China detained the two, a former diplomat and an entrepreneur, days after Canada arrested Chinese high-tech executive Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver on a U.S. extradition warrant in December.Tuesday, China sought to suspend imports of Canadian meat on the grounds that its authorities don’t trust Canadian assurances about the quality of its exports, and has previously obstructed shipments of Canadian canola, peas and soybeans.Canadian ministers and officials have had little luck getting to speak to their opposite numbers in China about any of it.In order to get a message across, Trudeau will lean on the power and influence of the mercurial Donald Trump to raise the issue of two detained Canadians during a one-on-one meeting with China’s president Xi Jinping.Earlier this month in Normandy, France, Trudeau said he was looking forward to attending the G20 and that the “opportunity to engage with the Chinese president directly is certainly something that we are looking at.”A Canadian government official now says it is “unlikely” to request such a meeting in Osaka, where key themes include the global economy, trade, investment and innovation.The G20 includes countries with large economies from all over the world, with much more divergent interests than the smaller G7. Its members include Russia, China, Turkey, Indonesia, Brazil and South Korea.Ahead of the meeting, Trump pledged his support for Canada’s detainees in China during a meeting with Trudeau last Thursday in the Oval Office, where the two leaders sat together in bright yellow armchairs and the president vowed to bring up the issue with China’s Xi.“Are you trying to get a meeting?” Trump asked of Trudeau in response to a reporter’s question, to which the prime minister replied: “We’ve got a lot of things to discuss. ““Anything I can do to help Canada, I will be doing,” Trump said.Trudeau needs that assistance.David Mulroney, a former Canadian ambassador to China, said it should not come as a surprise that China is not interested in a meeting between its president and the prime minister.Trump will be Canada’s best shot to address the issue of the detentions, said Mulroney.“That would be the strongest card that could be played in our interests,” he said.“It would be an American card played to say … ‘If you want a normal relationship with us, you’ll leave our allies alone.’”Mulroney said he would also use the G20 to talk to other leaders who face similar challenges with China and are susceptible to its bullying.“If we can build this sense of shared purpose in pushing back against China, in not allowing ourselves to be isolated like this, that’s a big step forward,” he said.“It is in America’s interest and it is in the interest of a lot of other countries to see China pull back from hostage diplomacy and bullying … The only way to counter that is through collective action and that is a long, hard slog.”Trudeau is expected to meet with European partners to discuss a range of issues on Friday.Christopher Sands, the director of the Center for Canadian Studies at John Hopkins University, said Canada doesn’t play offence very much but agrees it would be advisable for Canada to talk to other leaders about the detained Canadians.Beyond asking for Trump’s support, countries like Japan, South Korea and perhaps India might be willing to do the same, Sands said, adding that would only strengthen the U.S. president’s commitment to the cause.An official confirmed Trudeau is expected to sit down with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the summit — a conversation where the detentions are likely to be raised.To date, a list of countries including Australia, France, German, Spain, the U.S. and the U.K. have spoken in support of the detained Canadians. Rohinton Medhora, the president of the Centre for International Governance Innovation, said he will be watching to see who else Xi meets in one-on-one sessions — called “bilaterals,” or just “bilats,” in diplomatic circles.“Beyond the Trump bilat, how many other bilats does he grant?” Medhora said. “If it turns out that he has very few others, then I wouldn’t read that much into it. On the other hand, if he has half a dozen and Canada isn’t one of them, then I would read something into that.”The G20 is an opportunity to show whether Canada is a player or not and its place in the world, Medhora added.“I would say the pressure (is on), especially going into an election when you have to demonstrate that Canada is better and different than four years ago,” he said.Conservative foreign-affairs critic Erin O’Toole echoed that point, saying it is critical Canada not let the opportunity afforded by the G20 pass, especially given the upcoming election campaign.“As of September, the writ will drop,” he said. “This is really the last major time to really shake up and try to stop the spiral of the China relationship.”—Follow @kkirkup on TwitterKristy Kirkup, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Beware of the taxman File before the April 30 deadline or face

by Linda Nguyen, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 3, 2017 8:00 am MDT Last Updated Apr 3, 2017 at 4:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Beware of the taxman: File before the April 30 deadline or face penalties TORONTO – Like many Canadians, Justin Schaefer gets stressed every year as the tax deadline approaches.And he has good reason to be.That’s because the last time the 32-year-old reported his income to the Canada Revenue Agency was for the 2011 tax year, and now he’s on the hook for $28,000 in back taxes and penalties.He’s not alone.According to the CRA, 8.6 per cent of Canadians who filed their tax returns last year did so after the April 30 deadline, triggering penalties, interest and in Schaefer’s case, warning letters, phone calls and even his missing returns completed for him by the federal government agency.“Tax season gives me a lot of anxiety,” said Schaefer, who is a contract worker in audio visual production in Toronto.Sheryl Troup, a director of tax and estate planning at the Investors Group in Winnipeg, says there are many reasons why Canadians file their taxes late, ranging from being too busy, dealing with personal or professional issues or just forgetting or not caring about the deadline.For the self-employed or those whose spouse or common-law partner is self-employed, the deadline to file is June 15. But for those who have a balance owing, it must be paid by April 30.If someone owing taxes forgoes the filing deadline, they can expect to pay a five per cent late penalty on the balance they owe, plus one per cent of their balance owing for each full month their return is late, to a maximum of 12 months. And if being late is something that they’ve done before, it could be worse.If the CRA charged a late-filing penalty on someone’s return for 2013, 2014 or 2015, the late-filing penalty for 2016 may be 10 per cent of their 2016 balance owing, plus two per cent of the 2016 balance owing for each full month the return is late, to a maximum of 20 months.“Procrastination is the worst,” says Troup.Another common excuse she hears for delaying filing is that people believe they are entitled to a refund, and will not face any penalties if they file late.But that isn’t necessarily true because late filers, especially those who are low- to middle-income, risk losing government benefits such as child tax credits, access to provincial assistance programs and GST rebates if they don’t file on time. The CRA uses current tax reports to calculate eligibility for those programs each year.“The other thing too is that the concept of the refund is that you’re owed money,” Troup says. “So why let the government use your money rather than have it for yourself?”She also notes that on-time filers will benefit from receiving their refund earlier rather than later because that money can immediately be put towards personal savings or investments.Lisa Gittens with H&R Block Canada says a key to meeting the deadline is to ensure all the paperwork, including T4 slips and receipts, are in order, and to make sure you have the professional help of an accountant if you need it.There are also strategies for late filers once they begin to catch up.The CRA has a voluntary disclosure program that gives Canadians a “second chance” to correct a previously filed tax return or to file one that is late.Taxpayers will still be required to pay any tax and interest that is owed, but under the program a filer can apply for relief from prosecution and penalties.The agency may also be able to put you on a payment plan if you are unable to pay the whole amount of owed taxes at once.“The CRA is good at communicating with clients and taxpayers so just communicate with them and let them know what’s happening,” said Gittens, a tax professional in Toronto.For Schaefer, he’s optimistic that he will eventually be up-to-date with his returns.He has scheduled an appointment with his accountant to get help with his 2012 taxes, and has been making progress with the CRA to get his tax bill down.Follow @LindaNguyenTO on Twitter.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version incorrectly stated the penalty charged for late tax filers. read more

Urban Meyer This is not another game this is The Game

With a spot in the Big Ten Championship Game locked up and a 42-27 win against Indiana in the rearview mirror, Urban Meyer and Ohio State have their sights set on archrival Michigan.Meyer — entering his third Michigan week as the Buckeyes’ coach — met with the media on Monday to discuss The Game and what it means to everyone involved, and also touched on some key points from OSU’s Saturday win over the Hoosiers.Meyer said he is “very pleased” to have another crack at the Big Ten title game this season.He said junior offensive lineman Taylor Decker, redshirt-sophomore offensive lineman Pat Elflein, senior wide receivers Evan Spencer and Devin Smith, and redshirt-junior wide receiver Corey Smith graded as champions on offense against Indiana.Sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott and redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall were the players of the game on offense, Meyer said.Marshall was also the player of the game on special teams.Meyer said sophomore safety Vonn Bell, junior linebacker Joshua Perry, sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa, junior defensive lineman Adolphus Washington and freshman linebacker Raekwon McMillan were champions on defense.He said senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett was the defensive player of the game.Meyer on the Indiana game: “We put that one to bed rather quickly” with Michigan on the horizon.He said OSU-Michigan matchup is not like any other game. “That’s the way it is here, and that’s the way it should be.”“This is not another game, this is The Game,” Meyer said.“How to have fun is to sing the fight song in the locker room after a win against your rivals,” he said of the mindset he wants his players to have going into the game.Meyer said he likes to educate the players about the rivalry to make sure they understand the significance.He said “there are great players there,” in reference to Michigan.Meyer said he expects the Wolverines to raise their level of play against the Buckeyes: “Their personnel will play their very best against us.”He said Bennett has been “outstanding” for the last month.Meyer said it is “very important to be hitting your stride” at this point in the season.He called the Buckeyes the “most improved team out there.”Meyer said “motivation won’t be an issue” even though Michigan has a 5-6 record this season.When asked if he ever thought he would be recruited by OSU in high school, Meyer joked: “Of course I did, my mom told me I was a great player. Things didn’t work out. I was waiting for that letter, it never happened.”He stressed that having a chance to sing the fight song after a win is the way to have fun with a rivalry game.The Game is scheduled for Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

First crematorium in Greece to be up and running in 2019

first_imgThe construction of Thessaloniki’s first crematorium is well underway at the First Municipal Cemetery in Thermi.On Wednesday during a tour of ongoing municipal initiatives the port city’s mayor, Yiannis Boutaris was optimistic it would be up and running by the first half of 2019.“The process has moved forward quite significantly,” he said.“All that is left is the local zoning plan, which we believe will be finished and approved by the end of the summer.”Since cremations were legalised in Greece in 2006 there has been strong opposition from the Church of Greece.Aside from religious motivations, traditional burials are also a significant source of revenue for the funeral industry, local churches and municipalities.Currently those seeking to cremate their deceased loved ones have been transporting the bodies to Bulgaria with the estimated price tag of €10,000.Once local cremation centres are open and running, the average cost will be around €500 to €600.In addition to the crematorium underway in Thessaloniki, there are also plans to construct similar centres in Athens and Patra.

The Full Moon is Electric Boogie Woogie Woogie

first_img Rare Harvest Moon Will Light Up Night Sky on Friday the 13thIndia Finds Lost Vikram Lander on Moon’s Surface Stay on target Sure, the Moon shines because its surface reflects light from the Sun. But a new study suggests there is more to that bright lunar glow than meets the naked eye.As reported by National Geographic, Earth’s satellite is surrounded by an electric shell, which gathers power when the Moon shows its full face once a month.“In effect, when you gaze at a bright full Moon shining in the sky, you are probably seeing the lunar orb at its most electric,” the magazine said.Despite its barely there gravitational field, the Moon does possess a very tenuous atmosphere, called the exosphere. Even more surprising, though, was the discovery of a lunar ionosphere.The ephemeral layer of charged particles—roughly 1 million times more nebulous than the one topping our planet—is so weak it’s barely detectable when drenched in solar and cosmic radiation.“There’s a lot we don’t know about it, and it’s fair to say there’s still some controversy,” lead study author Jasper Halekas, an associate professor of experimental space physics at the University of Iowa, told NatGeo.In an effort to answer their questions, Halekas and his team turned to NASA’s Acceleration, Reconnection, Turbulence and Electrodynamics of the Moon’s Interaction with the Sun (ARTEMIS) mission.The operation features two probes, placed in unusual orbits near the Moon, which can peer into the orb’s diffuse exosphere. The best views, however, come around once a month.“When the Moon passes through the near vacuum of the geomagnetic tail of the Earth each lunar month around Full Moon, its presence becomes more important,” according to the study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.“In this unique environment, the lunar-derived charged particle density becomes comparable to the ambient value,” the team wrote, “and the presence of the lunar ionosphere can appreciably affect its surroundings.”During this window, ARTEMIS can track the plasma waves coming from the sun-saturated lunar dayside, and create a more detailed picture of the Moon’s ionosphere.“We utilize measurements from lunar orbit to investigate the density, structure, and dynamics of the faint lunar ionosphere and its interaction with the local environment of the geomagnetic tail,” the study said.This points to a higher density of lunar-derived plasma during the full Moon, suggesting, NatGeo explained, that the planetoid’s ionosphere becomes more prominent while in Earth’s protection.The Moon remains a mystery to most people—but maybe not for long. Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa will fly to Earth’s satellite as SpaceX’s first private astronaut. And NASA’s kilopower project could enable crewed missions to the Moon.

Wilshere If Wenger had stayed I would have stayed at Arsenal

first_imgJack Wilshere revealed that Arsene Wenger’s departure from Arsenal in the summer led to his own exitThe 26-year-old midfielder signed for West Ham United on a three-year deal in July as a free agent after ending a 17-year association at Arsenal.Wilshere opted to leave the Emirates Stadium following talks with new manager Unai Emery over his role at the club.But Wilshere admits that Wenger would have convinced him to stay with the Gunners as the Frenchman would have ensured his place in the team.“If Arsene had stayed I would have stayed because of the influence he had in my career and the trust he had in me,” Wilshere told the Islington Gazette.Daniel Fark, Norwich City, Premier LeagueDaniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R.

Senators Add Community Infrastructure Money to Defense Spending Package

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Senate on Thursday approved an amendment to a two-bill spending package allocating $20 million to the new authority allowing DOD to provide funding to state and local governments for off-base infrastructure projects, bringing the opportunity for communities to obtain funding under the Defense Community Infrastructure Pilot Program in the new fiscal year one step closer. By Thursday evening, the chamber approved the underlying $857 billion minibus made up of the defense and Labor-HHS-Education appropriations measures.The Senate’s approval of the fiscal 2019 defense spending bill in August positions Congress to possibly avoid starting the new fiscal year with a series of continuing resolutions to fund the Pentagon. The path to working out a compromise spending bill with the House that could be sent to the president is uncertain, however. The House passed its FY 2019 defense spending bill in June, but its Labor-HHS-Education measure has not been debated on the floor. One option is for the chambers to hash out a conference report for the defense bill by itself, but that’s not the first choice of Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.). “We’d like to go to conference as soon as we can with the House with the bills coupled together,” Shelby said, reported CQ.The chairman of the House Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations Subcommittee also indicated he would like to see the two spending bills move together as a way to gain House Republicans’ support for a large domestic spending measure. Attaching the two, though, likely would complicate the path toward a House-Senate compromise, slowing enactment of the defense title. The good news is there are five weeks before the new fiscal year gets under way.At this point, passage of the Senate amendment funding the defense community infrastructure initiative represents a significant achievement for ADC, with much of the credit going to Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), co-chair of the Senate Defense Communities Caucus, and the association’s Federal Outreach Advisory Committee.The provision was included in a package of non-controversial amendments that passed by unanimous consent. Another provision, offered by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), would allocate $45 million to clean PFOA and PFOS contamination at military bases.The defense spending bill would provide about $675 billion for military and intelligence programs, including almost $68 billion for the overseas contingency operations account, matching the topline in the House version. Still, there are considerable differences in funding for individual programs between the two versions that need to be reconciled.last_img read more

Afghanistan says Pakistan will help in peace talks

Baradar was reportedly conducting talks with the Afghan government that were kept secret from the Pakistanis.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Some members of the peace council suggested that Pakistan’s religious and political leadership might be having a change of heart _ in part because of violence committed by Pakistan’s branch of the Taliban movement.“This is the first time that we really saw some changing of the minds while we were speaking,” said Qayumuddin Kashaf, a member of peace council and head of the top religious council in Afghanistan. He said that in the past, Pakistani religious leaders insisted that insurgents were waging a holy war in Afghanistan. “Now we see some changing of the mindset because the security situation in Pakistan is very bad if not worse than Afghanistan.”Others in Kabul believe, however, that Pakistan may simply be playing a waiting game, trying to appease Afghanistan with small gestures until international troops leave Afghanistan and the Taliban can try to mount a comeback.Despite the prisoner release, the peace process still has little traction and has experienced many setbacks, including the assassination of Rabbani’s father in September 2011. Burhanuddin Rabbani, a former Afghan president and the first leader of the peace council, was killed in his Kabul home by a suicide bomber posing as an emissary from the Taliban. Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – A top Afghan peace mediator hailed Pakistan’s recent decision to free nine members of the Taliban who favor negotiations, saying Saturday it was a sign Islamabad is willing to help bring the militant group to the table and end Afghanistan’s 11-year-old war.The cooperation of Pakistan, which has longstanding ties to the Taliban, is seen as key to jumpstarting the stalled Afghan peace process. The Afghan and U.S. governments accuse Islamabad of backing insurgents _ an allegation Pakistan denies _ and say many militant leaders are hiding in the country.

They said Pakistan, Afghanistan and the United States would provide safe passage to members of the Taliban who want to talk with negotiators.They agreed to work with the international community to remove prospective Taliban negotiators from the U.N. sanctions list so they can participate in any peace talks. The sanctions include a travel ban, arms embargo and assets freeze.Afghanistan and Pakistan also agreed to hold a conference of religious leaders and scholars from Islamic countries to address violence in the name of Islam, council members said.The peace council did not identify the prisoners who were freed, but an Afghan official familiar with the peace process gave The Associated Press a list of eight.

In the past, the Pakistanis have arrested Taliban figures interested in peace talks with the Afghan government, he said, but now the government is releasing them and pledging to give them safe passage to negotiations.“It seems that Pakistani officials have realized that a close cooperation between Afghanistan and Pakistan can be effective for the peace initiative,” Rabbani said. “Of course, this is a vision we have been insisting on for a long time.”Rabbani, whose delegation spent four days in Islamabad this week meeting with high-ranking government, political and religious leaders, said Pakistan has pledged to release additional Taliban prisoners who will be allowed to stay in Pakistan, return to Afghanistan or seek residence in a third country. While nothing can guarantee they won’t rejoin Taliban fighters, Rabbani said he was confident that they would continue to cooperate with the peace council. “We will be in contact with those released,” he said.

Sharma Jan09 2018 17:02 48 IST Comment 0 Tweet Several years ago when Rajputs were demanding deification of Roop Kanwar — a young woman burnt on her husband’s funeral pyre in Rajasthan’s Deorala — some hotheads armed with swords surrounded former vice president Bhairon Singh Shekhawat at a railway station The Rajputs who were back then led by the some of the leaders currently threatening to burn down Rajasthan if Padmavat is released demanded that Shekhawat support their demand for getting Roop Kanwar declared ‘Sati Mata’ a deity Surrounded by a violent mob brandishing swords confronted by leaders of his own community Shekhawat could have taken the easier option of succumbing to the thugs perhaps even hijacking the agitation for glorification of a young woman killed by her family and community in the name of tradition But Shekhawat refused to give in to threats of violence and ostracism "My father died when we were young If my mother had become sati then I would not have been here No I will never support sati" Shekhawat then the leader of the opposition in the state assembly told the raucous Rajputs Stared down by him the mob scattered Deepika Padukone in a still from Padmavat How would have Shekhawat the man who single-handedly kept the BJP alive in Rajasthan for decades reacted to threats of violence by Rajput groups if Padmavat were released in Rajasthan My bet is he would have looked the thugs in the eye reprimanded them in his famous baritone and warned them of dire consequences for taking on the state Unfortunately as Shekhawat fans once proudly claimed Rajasthan has had just one Singh (lion) Since his death the state has been deprived of leaders with a mass appeal and moral rectitude and courage This lack of courage is evident in the way the state has bowed to the demands of Rajput hotheads for banning Padmavat This is not just about the diffidence of the state government that has genuflected to the Karni Sena and its cohorts leading the campaign against Padmavat There is a saying in India that the waqar (dignity) of sarkar (government) should be buland (high) But the Rajasthan government has surrendered its waqar ironically in the name of the dignity of a fictional character by banning the movie even when it has been cleared by the film certification board of India Clearly it doesn’t trust the censor board constituted by its own government at the Centre for taking the right decision The Karni Sena has been threatening to burn down theatres in Rajasthan if Padmavat is released By doing this it is putting a sword to the government’s neck In any other democracy in any other place where the Supreme Court and other constitutional bodies have rejected demands for a blanket ban the government would have come down with its full might on the Karni Sena Instead it has surrendered to threats and blackmail Rajputs are nearly ten per cent of the state It is difficult to believe that all of them subscribe to the politics of violence practised by the Karni Sena But the state government has banned the movie purportedly to defend the dignity of Rajasthan Unfortunately there is no bigger humiliation than running away from the fight for artistic freedom and India’s constitutional ethics at the sight of a handful of adversaries Such chicanery in the land of Rana Pratap Prithviraj Chouhan and Amar Singh Rathore is embarrassing The Congress too is watching in silence this cowardly surrender the attack on state’s dignity None of its leaders have come out in support of the film or stood up for freedom of expression There was a time when Congress leader Ashok Gehlot was known for taking brave decisions He had once ridiculed Chandraswami in public even when he enjoyed the patronage of Congress leaders like PV Narasimha Rao A few years ago he had shown exceptional courage in dealing strictly with Asaram and his followers when the self-proclaimed godman was accused of rape and blackmail That Gehlot of yore is now watching in silence Perhaps his conscience too is heavy with the burden of surrendering to Muslim hardliners when they demanded Salman Rushdie not be allowed to speak at the Jaipur Literature Festival According to Malik Mohammad Jayasi’s legend Padmini had shown jauhar (courage) by immolating herself rather than letting Alauddin Khalji attack her honour and dignity Clearly the Congress and the BJP both lack the jauhar to take on those attacking the foundations of Indian democracy This is the second time a film is being banned in Rajasthan A few years ago Rajputs hadJodha Akbar banned because they couldn’t bear to see a princess of Amber (near Jaipur) marry a Mughal emperor A few years after the ban the film became a regular on Indian TV channels turning the diktat into a joke The current ban on Padmavat won’t work either In the age of pirated prints free downloads anybody who really wants to watch a film can do so in the comfort of his home Ultimately the legend of Padmavati retold by Sanjay Leela Bhansali would become a household tale in India People may or may not remember the film But what would not be forgotten is how a state known for valor and countless fights for honour and dignity wiped out its own legacy with a collective show of cowardice Not just fictitious character like Padmavati even legends like Shekhawat would have been ashamed

in 2017: From Golmaal Again to Padmavat debating the what ifs and what nots of the year New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday sought the Gujarat government’s response to an allegation that it was suppressing or manipulating data regarding the number of Class 1 seats on its primary education website affecting the enrolment of students from the weaker sections A bench of Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud issued notices to the Gujarat government and its Directorate of Primary Education on a petition seeking a direction for enrolment of 63610 students from the weaker sections and disadvantaged groups at the school entry level of Class 1 within 30 days The matter is likely to come up for hearing next week The court agreed to hear the matter after senior advocate Colin Gonsalves submitted that the issue was coming inthe way of the provisions of Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 Representational image of the Supreme Court of India Reuters The plea filed by Sandip Harshadray Munjyasara through advocate Satya Mitra has alleged that the state government was colluding with the schools to hide the data regarding the actual enrolment in violation of provisions of the act It also sought a direction to the state to give access to the relevant servers/computer containing the data to the forensic sciences laboratory here "in order to retrieve the data being suppressed or manipulated" The plea alleged that the modus operandi followed by the over 9000 schools in Gujarat to avoid ensuring that 25 percent of the strength of each class was of children belonging to the weaker sections was "to hide the strength of the class ie the total number of children in a particular class" "If the total strength is understated then the 25 percent is also understated and the schools are then able to violate the act by admitting very few children belonging to the weaker sections and disadvantaged groups" the plea said It claimed that the websites maintained by the Gujarat government showed thousands of schools hiding the student strength at the entry-level Class 1 to "such an extent that it made a mockery of the act" The petitioner moved the Supreme Court against the 20 April order of Gujarat High Court refusing to pass any direction to the authorities on his petition He sought a direction to the state government "to ensure that 63610 students from weaker sections and disadvantaged groups be enrolled in Class 1 forthwith and be allowed to fill up the online admission form for a period of 30 days" The plea sought direction to the secretary of the state’s department of education to disclose names and addresses of all schools in Gujarat with the sanctioned strength of Class 1 of each school and actual enrolment for the years 2014-2015 2015-2016 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 It said the enrolment list of general and weaker sections and disadvantaged group students enrolled school-wise for the specified years be also provided The petitioner claimed that his research has revealed that over 1000 schools had shown "zero strength" in Class 1 and over 4000 schools "less than 40 students" as the strength in the same class It was alleged that the Gujarat government after being exposed had "immediately taken steps to change their website data" and started "eliminating the incriminating data" particularly in respect of schools showing very low student strength at the entry level The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a case against Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav his wife Rabri Devi son
