Sexual assault revelations rock Michigan State University

first_imgStudents take over MSU President’s office, Nov. 19, 2010.Students marched on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich., on Jan. 26, demanding safety and accountability from university officials in the ever-widening sexual abuse and sexual assault scandal rocking the university.The focus is now turning from Olympic gymnastics to MSU’s iconic and monied basketball and football programs and how accusations against student-athletes have been handled or mishandled by coaches and university officials.Ingham County (Michigan) Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina handed Larry Nassar his “death warrant” on Jan. 24, after seven days of heart-wrenching and powerful testimony from his victims. She sentenced the serial pedophile to 40 to 175 years in prison, to be served following Nassar’s 60-year term for federal child pornography convictions.The rising tide of the #metoo and #timesup movement across the U. S. propelled the Nassar case into the national limelight. One after another, more than 150 young women, many of them Olympic champions, entered the courtroom to courageously confront their abuser, tell their story and demand justice from a system that failed them at every turn. (See Monica Moorehead’s Jan. 23 “Gymnasts bravely expose Nassar sexual abuse” at was a sports physician at MSU for over 25 years. There he preyed on girls and young women, especially young gymnasts who were sent to him by USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee. Girls as young as 6 were required to submit to physical examinations from Nassar, who used this as a way to cover up sexual abuse. Young women suffered at his hands for years, even after some had reported him to many different authorities.He was finally exposed in 2016 after years of painstaking work and evidence collection by Rachael Denhollander, a gymnast survivor who became an attorney, coach and mother.Following Nassar’s sentencing, Lou Anna K. Simon announced her resignation that day as MSU’s longtime president. Acceding to a demand from the USOC, the entire board of USA Gymnastics announced its resignation on Jan. 26.Dominoes continue to fallOn Jan. 25, ESPN’s Outside the Lines reporters Paula Lavigne and Nicole Noren released a damning investigative report involving sexual assault allegations against several MSU Spartans football and basketball players. The report exposes a long history of “denial, inaction and information suppression” by MSU athletics officials and university leaders. (“OTL: Michigan State secrets extend far beyond Larry Nassar,” at’s acclaimed Athletic Director Mark Hollis tendered his resignation the next day.“Even MSU’s most-recognizable figures, football coach Mark Dantonio and basketball coach Tom Izzo, have had incidents involving their programs,” ESPN noted, including allegations leveled against 16 Spartans football players.Dantonio has arrogantly denied any wrongdoing or cover-up and called the allegations “completely false.” Dantonio is the winningest coach in Spartans football history and was celebrated for his team’s “comeback season” in 2017 even after several players were expelled for sexual assault.Despite mounting pressure, members of the statewide-elected MSU Board of Trustees, the university’s governing body, have refused to step down.Meanwhile, the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Michigan attorney general’s office are among the official entities that have announced investigations of MSU’s handling of the rampant sexual abuse by Nassar that went unnoticed and unchecked for over 25 years.WW in 2010 on MSU sexual assaults The ESPN report includes an account of allegations brought by a student in late August 2010 that she had been raped by two members of the basketball team. The team’s coach Izzo is a Hall of Fame member who has taken the Spartans seven times to the NCAA Final Four.At the time, Workers World covered the struggle at MSU led by the Coalition Against Sexual Violence, which fought to bring justice to the victim and create a safer environment on campus.In “Activists protest handling of rape charges” published Oct. 21, 2010, MSU alum and then-student activist Megan Spencer wrote:“The university administration has failed to suspend or expel the players from MSU, and has not even released a statement condemning the assault. In addition, Residence Life, the department in charge of on-campus housing, has failed to remove the players from their dorm room, further endangering women at MSU. Neither the director of MSU’s Athletic Department, Mark Hollis, nor men’s basketball coach Tom Izzo has commented publicly on the assault.“By failing to take action, punish the assailants or respond to this act of violence, MSU’s administration, Residence Life and the Athletic Department send the message that students can commit acts of sexual violence against other students without consequence. It also sends the message to survivors of sexual assault that their experiences are not significant to administrators, prosecutors and others with authority, thus discouraging future survivors from reporting assaults.”Coalition members were harassed and threatened at the time for daring to expose what was going on with the distinguished men’s basketball team. A Spartans player yelled “F**k you, b**ch!” at the activists as they protested at an athletic parade. A banner drop (“Rape is a Crime”) inside the Breslin Center resulted in students being manhandled, cursed at and ejected from the premises. (See WW articles at and MSU had acted properly in response to the coalition’s charges, years of additional harassment and assaults could have been prevented.WW photo: Kris Balderas HamelFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The plea was filed seeking an order to the respondent-officers to release the cash amounting to Rs.66,43,130/- seized from the residential premises of the petitioner and her husband.”This Court has carefully gone through Section 67 of the CGST Act, 2017 and the expression used in sub-section (2) of Section 67 is “confiscation of any documents or books or things, which in proper officer’s opinion shall be useful for or relevant to any proceedings under this Act, are secreted in any place”. Thereafter, sub-section (2) has two provisos and first proviso relates to goods and the second proviso refers to documents or books or things so seized shall be retained”, said the bench.The core issue before the Court was that whether expression “things” covers within its meaning the cash or not. In the opinion of the Court, the CGST Act, 2017 has to be seen as a whole and the definition clauses are the keys to unlock the intent and purpose of the various sections and expressions used therein, where the said provisions are put to implementation. “Section 2(17) defines “business” and Section 2(31) defines “consideration”. In the considered opinion of this Court a conjoint reading of Section 2(17), 2(31), 2(75) and 67(2) makes it clear that money can also be seized by authorised officer”, opined the bench.The bench held that the word “things” in Section 67(2) of the CGST Act, 2017 is to be given wide meaning and as per Black’s Law Dictionary, any subject matter of ownership within the spear of proprietary or valuable right, would come under the definition of ” thing”. Similarly, in the Wharton’s Law Lexicon, the word “thing” has been defined and it includes “money”. “It is a cardinal principle of interpretation of statute that unreasonable and inconvenient results are to be avoided, artificially and anomaly to be avoided and most importantly a statute is to be given interpretation which suppresses the mischief and advances the remedy”, said the bench.Therefore, keeping in view the aforesaid interpretation of the word “thing”, the bench concluded that money has to be included and it cannot be excluded as prayed by the petitioner from Section 67(2). The bench noted that the present case is at the stage of search and seizure- a search has been carried out and proceedings are going on. Resultantly, keeping in view the totality of the circumstances of the case, the material available in the case diary and also keeping in view Section 67(2) of the CGST Act, 2017, the Court was of the opinion that the authorities have rightly seized the amount from the husband of the petitioner and unless and until the investigation is carried out and the matter is finally adjudicated, the question of releasing the amount does not arise.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Authorities seize record-setting 1.7 tons of meth worth $1.29B at LA port

first_imgU.S. Customs and Border Protection(LOS ANGELES) — A joint drug bust between Australian and U.S. authorities in mid-January resulted in a record 1.7 tons of methamphetamine being seized at Los Angeles/Long Beach seaport.Customs and Border Protection announced the seizure of the three containers on Thursday, which were intended to be shipped to Australia before being searched on Jan. 11. The containers were filled with speakers “artfully” stuffed with the drugs.In addition to the 3,810 pounds of meth, the shipment also contained 55.9 pounds of cocaine and 11.5 pounds of heroin. Australian officials said the total street value of the haul was $1.29 billion.“There’s no question that the criminal organization behind this scheme has been dealt a significant blow,” Joseph Macias, special agent-in-charge for Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Los Angeles, said in a statement. “Along with our law enforcement partners here and around the world, we continue in a day-to-day battle against the blight of methamphetamine that continues to devastate our communities. Through a collaborative effort — pooling our information, resources and expertise — we are keeping this dangerous contraband from reaching our streets and potentially saving lives.”The bust was the largest amount of methamphetamine ever seized in the United States, according to police.Authorities said six people have been arrested in the scheme — two Americans and four Australians. The Americans were identified by Australian police as a 52-year-old man and 46-year-old woman living in Woodstock, Victoria.Australian Federal Police evidently found the seizure to be worthy of memorializing via pun. They asked commenters on their Facebook page to, “Help us celebrate and post your best ice puns below.”The bust is the third major seizure announced by U.S. authorities in a matter of weeks.CBP announced the largest-ever fentanyl bust on Jan. 31. Authorities seized 254 pounds of fentanyl, a powerful opioid, worth about $3.5 million at the Nogales Port of Entry in Arizona.Just two days later, the Maricopa, Arizona, County Sheriff’s Office announced they had seized 3,500 pounds of marijuana and over 220 pounds of meth near Gila Bend when two trucks swerved around a border patrol check and tried to elude authorities in a desert chase.

Millions of cicadas to emerge in parts of US for 1st time in 17 years, will produce ‘alien-like wail’

first_imgrpbirdman/iStockBy ELLA TORRES, ABC News(BLACKSBURG, Va.) — Americans won’t be the only ones emerging from their isolation this summer; so too will millions of insects that have been underAmericans won’t be the only ones emerging from their isolation this summer; so too will millions of insects that have been underground for nearly two decades.A species of cicadas will buzz around in southwest Virginia, parts of North Carolina and West Virginia for the first time in 17 years, with as many as 1.5 million cicadas emerging per acre, according to entomologists at Virginia Tech.“Communities and farms with large numbers of cicadas emerging at once may have a substantial noise issue,” Eric Day, an entomologist in Virginia Tech’s Department of Entomology, said in a statement. “Hopefully, any annoyance at the disturbance is tempered by just how infrequent — and amazing — this event is.”The cicadas that will emerge are part of the Brood IX species. They have spent most of their lives living in the soil and feeding on tree boots underground.The transition from “nymphs” to mature adults living outdoors is synchronized based on the year and temperature of the soil. The timing of the cycle, which can be either 13 years or 17 years, remains a mystery to scientists.Research suggests that the length of the brood cycle could be attributed to avoiding predators because when the cicadas emerge, the amount of biomass they provide could serve as a food source for potential predators. Because of this, one theory is that they evolve to avoid synching up with predator cycles.The cicadas are not harmful to humans and do not pose a danger to plants through feeding. The cicadas, however, can cause damage to plants through their egg-laying habits.Adult female cicadas implant their eggs onto branches or vines, causing them to either split and wither in a process called “flagging.” If it happens too many times, the plants can have their growth stunted or be killed altogether.The noises that cicadas produce are mating calls from the males who are attempting to attract females. It could be an annoyance to some, considering it is described as an “alien-like wail,” according to Virginia Tech.Most cicadas only have four to six weeks of activity before they die.“This insect is really fascinating, and if you don’t have fruit trees or grapevines to protect, you can enjoy this phenomenon while it lasts,” Doug Pfeiffer, a professor and Extension specialist in the Department of Entomology, said.A separate species of cicadas emerge every year.

Substorm ‐ Ring Current Coupling: A comparison of isolated and compound substorms

first_imgSubstorms are a highly variable process, which can occur as an isolated event or as part of a sequence of multiple substorms (compound substorms). In this study we identify how the low energy population of the ring current and subsequent energization varies for isolated substorms compared to the first substorm of a compound event. Using observations of H+ and O+ ions (1 eV to 50 keV) from the Helium Oxygen Proton Electron instrument onboard Van Allen Probe A, we determine the energy content of the ring current in L‐MLT space. We observe that the ring current energy content is significantly enhanced during compound substorms as compared to isolated substorms by ~ 20‐30%. Furthermore, we observe a significantly larger magnitude of energization (by ~ 40‐50%) following the onset of compound substorms relative to isolated substorms. Analysis suggests that the differences predominantly arise due to a sustained enhancement in dayside driving associated with compound substorms compared to isolated substorms. The strong solar wind driving prior to onset results in important differences in the time history of the magnetosphere, generating significantly different ring current conditions and responses to substorms. The observations reveal information about the substorm injected population and the transport of the plasma in the inner magnetosphere.last_img read more

Boomin portal to launch on 2nd April

first_imgAfter months of will-they-won’t-they speculation, Boomin says it will launch on Friday, 2nd April with 5,000 branches signed up including 55 of the top 100 agents in the UK.This, it claims, gives the Bruce brothers’ platform more agents using the platform at launch than either Zoopla or OnTheMarket managed when they first went live.Based on Rightmove’s recently-reported of just over 19,000 estate agency branches in the UK, this gives Boomin approximately 26% coverage of the overall market.Co-founder Michael Bruce says: “We are not just trying to build a credible alternative to Rightmove, we are determined to change the centre of gravity, where more of the power is held by the agents and the rewards more equally shared.“The portal of the future will go way beyond a classified advertising model and Boomin will spearhead that change.”Latest agents to sign up as ‘founder agents’ include Greenslade Taylor Hunt, Portico, McCartney, Hackney & Leigh and Edward Mellor.Simon Havens, Head of Residential Sales at Greenslade Taylor Hunt (pictured), says: “The Boomin proposition is exciting and looks very much like the portal of the future, opening up a wealth of new client/agent opportunities.”Agents have until 31st March to sign up to Boomin, after which the better deal offered to founder agents will be withdrawn.Bruce has also confirmed that his portal’s £50m media blitz is due to start on April 2nd.“The pips are already being squeezed by Rightmove and, if left unchecked and based on past experience the vast majority of agents will be paying 60% more by 2024,” says Bruce.Bruce: this is what Boomin will be.michael havens Boomin Greenslade Taylor Hunt Michael Bruce March 8, 2021Nigel Lewis2 commentsAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 8th March 2021 at 11:39 amNobody’s fool, Boomin swerve the 1st of April, and as they say they are not looking to win the big three portal race, they are in a different event altogether, looking to enrich agents and increase the UX of the property consumer. This is where the new battle lies, provide a great experience for a property consumer, provide tangible RIO for the agent client, and stop increasing your annual charges to your capitive agent clients, when you do not offer anything new. I advise on proptech and portals and platforms globally, it might make sense if RM, ZPG and OtM, take a non UK look at what is really going on. And what proptech should be featuring in any property portal strategy, they might be very surprised.

News story: Matt Hancock warns of dangers of social media on children’s mental health

first_img Mental health is just as important as physical health and should be treated as such. I recognise there is concern amongst parents about the impact of social media on their children’s mental health so I am conducting a thorough evidence review and will draw up advice to help empower parents and provide clarity. Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock has issued an urgent warning on the potential dangers of social media on children’s mental health, stating that the threat of social media on mental health is similar to that of sugar on physical health.He confirmed that the Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Professor Dame Sally Davies, is reviewing the impact that excessive social media can have on children’s mental health.The CMO will draw up guidance to help parents ensure children don’t use social media in a way that harms their mental health.The guidance will include what age a child should be allowed to sign up to a social media account, and how often they should have access.The CMO’s review will also cover: cyberbullying online gaming where there is a social media aspect sleep problems problematic internet use, also known as ‘internet addiction’ Chief Medical Officer Professor Dame Sally Davies said:center_img Dame Sally will publish interim findings from the review in December.Evidence shows that children who spend more than 3 hours using social networking websites on a school day are twice as likely to report high or very high scores for mental ill-health.The government has made children and young people’s mental health a top priority in the NHS, and is half way through a major programme to improve access to specialist NHS services, supported by £1.4 billion of funding.While the Health and Social Care Secretary welcomes the progress some social media companies have made, there is much more to do.Next year, the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) will work with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to launch an online awareness campaign to raise awareness of all existing information and tools for parents on limiting their children’s screen time.Matt Hancock is also continuing to engage with his ministerial colleagues at DCMS and the Home Office around their upcoming Online Harms white paper.The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care said: Overwhelmingly technology is a force for good, but we are seeing more and more evidence that children using social media sites for hours on end each day is having a detrimental impact on their mental health. I want to empower parents to keep their children safe in the digital age which is why I’ve asked the Chief Medical Officer to draw up helpful guidance to allow them to make an informed choicelast_img read more

Op-Ed: Montana Is Blessed With Vast Renewable Energy

first_imgOp-Ed: Montana Is Blessed With Vast Renewable Energy
 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Jeff L. Fox for the Billings Gazette:The Bozeman Daily Chronicle recently editorialized that it’s “Time Montana realized coal’s limitations.” Similarly, The Billings Gazette recently ran editorials claiming that “Montana can’t stake its future on coal,” and Montana’s economy and energy sector must “Diversify or die, it’s our choice.”The editorials ran in response to the state’s grappling with the reality of a shrinking coal sector. Both editorial boards correctly identified that the challenges facing Montana’s coal sector extend far beyond the EPA’s “Clean Power Plan” carbon regulations. Both also correctly identified that Montana’s economy is diverse, and that further diversification will help us shrug off any coming coal losses. However, neither fully captured the opportunity that renewable energy development can play in building a brighter future for Montana.Montana is blessed with one of the best wind resources in the United States, which can help power our state and large portions of the economies of Washington, Oregon and California, just like Montana’s coal currently does. Additionally, our solar energy resource is more than adequate to meet a sizable portion of our own in-state demand, if we get serious about utilizing it.People who want to invest in and help build Montana’s renewable energy future are already here, ready to bring forward the clean energy that is in demand. Reviewing the interconnection requests on NorthWestern Energy’s system reveals every utility-scale electric energy project being actively developed (more than 50 in total on NorthWestern Energy’s system) is either a wind or solar energy project. Not every project currently being developed is likely to be successful, but the fact that all are renewable is an indicator of where we are going and where we should focus our efforts.Tallying up proposed wind projects statewide reveals there are more than 2,000 megawatts of wind energy being actively developed right now in Montana. If built, 2,000 megawatts of installed wind energy would probably represent something like $3 billion in capital investment, more than 11,000 construction job years, and more than 500 permanent jobs, based on the “Employment Effects of Clean Energy Investments in Montana” report authored by energy consulting firm Synapse Energy.Two thousand megawatts is a good starting point, but we have nearly limitless low-cost wind potential in Montana that can complement the renewable resources in neighboring states. How much wind resource we develop is really up to us, but commitment to even a modest goal could provide significant economic impact to help with our energy transition.Matching coal’s economic footprint would provide support for Montana’s rural communities, pumping tax dollars, local spending, landowner payments and, most important, jobs into small towns, without disrupting their character. A wind project in every county would help keep small town schools — the lifeblood of rural Montana communities —in good health.Meanwhile, Montana is seeing our first utility-scale solar projects being developed and community solar projects taking off with rural electric cooperatives leading the way. The rooftop solar market is experiencing sustained double-digit growth in Montana and today there are already more than 50 main street Montana-based businesses involved in selling, installing and connecting rooftop solar energy systems.Finally, large pumped hydroenergy storage projects proposed for Montana could further increase the value of wind and solar energy potential.The transition to cleaner energy is happening all across the country. It can happen here, too.Nationwide the solar industry already employs more workers than the entirety of the coal industry. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects wind energy technicians to be the fastest growing occupation in the nation through 2024.None of this is to suggest the challenges facing coal communities aren’t real and potentially painful. Together, we all must ensure that utilities, mine operators, and politicians do right by the workers if those jobs disappear or are phased out. But, Montana also has enormous benefits to realize in the clean energy transition, if we are open to seizing the opportunities.Guest opinion: Renewables can diversify Montana’s energy economylast_img read more

UK reports lowest virus death toll in weeks

first_imgDespite the slowdown — which came at a weekend when the toll has often been lower — Environment Secretary George Eustice said now was not the time to relax strict social distancing rules.”There are encouraging signs of progress,” he said at the daily Downing Street press briefing. “But before we consider it safe to adjust any of the current system distancing measures, we must be satisfied that we have met the five tests set last week.”These included making sure the British health service NHS was able to cope, and a “sustained and consistent” fall in the daily death rate. Britain on Sunday reported its lowest daily rise in coronavirus deaths in nearly four weeks as the government resisted calls for an early easing of countrywide lockdown rules.The number of people who have died from the virus has risen by 413 to 20,732, officials said Sunday, the lowest reported daily increase in fatalities in all of April.The last time the health department recorded a smaller increase was on March 31, at 381 deaths.  Influence row Meanwhile a row continues over the role played by Johnson’s chief advisor, Dominic Cummings, after it emerged he attended meetings of the main scientific group-advising ministers on the coronavirus pandemic. Downing Street denied that Cummings and another advisor, Ben Warner, were members of what is supposed to be the politically independent Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) but said they attended so as to “understand better” the scientific debates concerning this emergency”.A former Conservative frontbencher, David Davis, tweeted: “We should publish the membership of SAGE: remove any non-scientist members”. Johnson returning Raab told Sky News that Johnson would be back in his Downing Street office on Monday after recovering and was in “good spirits” and “raring to go”.He has been recuperating at the British prime ministerial retreat, Chequers, outside London since his release from hospital on April 12.Despite Sunday’s lower death toll Britain remains one of the worst-hit countries in the world by the virus.The government has been under scrutiny, especially over shortages in personal protective equipment and a lack of widespread testing, particularly of frontline health and social care workers.center_img Topics : The UK was initially placed into lockdown on March 23. This was extended on April 16 and a review is due on May 7.Eustice echoed statements made by Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab — who has been deputizing for Boris Johnson as the prime minister recovers from contracting the virus — earlier on Sunday that the lockdown rules would “be with us for some time” and were the “new normal”.Raab told the BBC: “We do want to look at when it’s safe, when it’s responsible, at ways to allow more outside activities to take place but, again, we have got to have the evidence that it’s a surefooted step and doesn’t allow the coronavirus to get a grip back on the country.”There have been calls for the rules to be relaxed from within the ruling Conservative Party.The new opposition Labor party leader Keir Starmer meanwhile wrote to Johnson on Sunday asking for details on a potential lifting of restrictions.He accused the government of “mistakes” at the beginning of the crisis and added: “The government cannot fall short in its preparations for what happens when the time is right for lockdown measures to be lifted.”Sunday’s figures also showed another 4,463 people had tested positive for the virus, bringing the total to almost 153,000.last_img read more

Latin America tops four million coronavirus cases

first_imgMore than four million coronavirus cases have been recorded in Latin America and the Caribbean, half of them in Brazil, according to an AFP tally based on official figures.The region passed the bleak milestone as Brazil reported a daily record of 67,860 new coronavirus cases Wednesday.Latin America is one of the hardest-hit regions in the world, with 4,040,925 recorded cases and 172,886 people killed by COVID-19. Mexico’s death toll has surged to become the fourth-highest in the world, at 40,400.The country surpassed Italy on Sunday, and now has more victims than anywhere but the United States, Brazil and Britain.Worldwide, the virus has infected more than 15 million people and killed nearly 625,000 since it emerged in China late last year.Brazil in particular has struggled to set a strategy for responding to the pandemic.President Jair Bolsonaro faces criticism for downplaying the virus and attacking social distancing measures adopted by state and local authorities.The far-right leader, who has regularly hit the streets mask-less for rallies by his supporters, has been in quarantine at the presidential palace since July 7 after contracting the virus himself.His office announced Wednesday he had again tested positive, saying he would continue his quarantine and suspend his upcoming travel plans.Bolsonaro, 65, argues the economic fallout from stay-at-home measures could be worse than the virus itself, and is instead pushing the unproven malaria drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine as remedies, following in the footsteps of US President Donald Trump.Margareth Dalcomo, an expert at Brazil’s leading public-health institute, Fiocruz, said Bolsonaro’s hydroxychloroquine-pushing was “deplorable.””This politicization of the drug by the US and Brazilian presidents for murky reasons has no justification, and it deceives people,” she told AFP.”It has been proven this drug has no effect against COVID-19.”Bolsonaro is on his third health minister since the pandemic reached Brazil five months ago, after falling out with two doctors who previously held the post over their recommendations on containing the virus.The current minister, an interim, is Eduardo Pazuello, an army general with no prior medical experience.The World Health Organization voiced optimism last week that the outbreak in Brazil had finally reached a plateau, urging the country to use the opportunity to “take control.”But though the level of daily infections and deaths has stabilized, it remains high.The country has recorded an average of more than 37,000 infections and 1,050 deaths a day over the past week. Topics :center_img That is the highest caseload of any region except North America, and the highest death toll of any region except Europe.Brazil alone has registered 2.2 million cases and 82,771 deaths, the second-biggest outbreak in the world after the United States.Although many Latin American countries have begun relaxing stay-at-home measures, the virus is still spreading quickly across much of the region.Peru, Mexico and Chile are also on the list of the top 10 countries by total cases, with well over 300,000 each.last_img read more

Mourinho confident of Blues return

first_img He added: “I feel the people there love me and in life you have to look for that. Life is beautiful and short and you must look for what you think is best for you.” Mourinho managed Chelsea between 2004 and 2007 and led them to back-to-back Premier League titles in 2005 and 2006. The 50-year-old looks set to replace former interim manager Rafael Benitez, who left the club are leading them to a third-place finish and the Europa League trophy. Mourinho’s appointment may be imminent but the Premier League was forced to issue an apology to Chelsea after their own website jumped the gun on the announcement. An article, headlined ‘Jose Mourinho makes Chelsea return’, was published on Sunday with Monday’s date on it but has since been removed from the website. A spokesman for the Premier League confirmed the article had been published in error. ”It was a publishing error. We took it down as soon as we were notified of it, and we’ve spoken to and apologised to Chelsea. We have no prior knowledge of any movement or any announcement (regarding Mourinho).” The article’s sub-header read ‘Portuguese coach back at Stamford Bridge after signing a XX-year contract’, and the Premier League indicated it was an article which was being prepared in anticipation of a possible announcement. The Premier League is trying to ascertain whether the publication of the article was the result of a system failure or human error. Mourinho’s era as Real Madrid boss ended on Saturday night with a 4-2 win over Osasuna in the Primera Division, with the Portuguese having already confirmed he would leave the Spanish giants at the end of the season. Before he left Spain, Mourinho spoke to TV football show Punto Pelota about his future plans, and said: “I’m going to London on Monday and at the end of the week I will be the manager of Chelsea.” Jose Mourinho has said that he will be the new Chelsea manager by the end of the week.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Villa resume Sinclair talks

first_imgAston Villa are back in the running to sign Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair. Press Association The club have resumed talks with City over a possible move for the Etihad misfit, Press Association Sport understands. Villa manager Paul Lambert said last week any deal for Sinclair was dead but it has now been revived, with a loan the most likely outcome. center_img Sinclair has made just three starts since signing for City from Swansea in 2012 and 19 appearances in total. He has played only four games this season – a total of 25 minutes – and has not featured for Manuel Pellegrini this year. Sinclair spent last season on loan at West Brom, where he made 11 appearances and failed to make an impact at The Hawthorns. The former Chelsea trainee would become Villa’s second signing of the transfer window after Carles Gil joined from Valencia earlier this month. Villa, who go to Arsenal on Sunday, are in desperate need of goals, having scored just 11 in the Barclays Premier League this season, and want to bring in more creative players in January. last_img read more

Hazard and Costa fire warning of Chelsea’s title ambitions

first_imgBy Martyn HermanLONDON,(Reuters)-Chelsea’s points tally after 10 games shows they are twice as good as they were at this stage of last season’s Premier League campaign, which considering the form of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa is hardly surprising.They were both on target yesterday as Chelsea outclassed Southampton 2-0 to move into fourth spot with 22 points — just one behind Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.The poor form and questionable appetite of both Costa and Hazard was blamed partly for Chelsea’s dire start to last season that ultimately cost manager Jose Mourinho his job.However, the duo who helped fire Chelsea to the 2014-15 title are thriving once again in Antonio Conte’s 3-4-3 system.Hazard’s opener after six minutes meant he has scored in three consecutive Premier League games and has five for the season. This time last year he had failed to register and did not score his first league goal until April.Likewise, Costa, looking again like the marauding bruiser who ran defences ragged when he first arrived at Stamford Bridge rather than the disinterested figure he cut early last season, already has eight league goals to his credit.It took him until January to reach that total last season and he had managed just two in the league when Mourinho was sacked.His second-half effort, a curling shot from 25 metres, was sublime but it was his work rate across the pitch that rubbed off on the Spain international’s team mates.“When you see Eden and Diego, and Pedro, working very hard during the game, you are happy,” Conte said of his front three.“They are strikers and usually it’s a bit difficult for the strikers to work for the team, but their commitment and work-rate is fantastic.”Chelsea’s defending too has been unrecognisable this season. They have conceded nine goals compared to the 19 they had already leaked after 10 games under Mourinho a year ago.Even with skipper John Terry fit to return yesterday, Brazilian David Luiz was again preferred alongside Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta and did not put a foot out of place.“I’m very happy after this performance. I saw great commitment, work rate — with the ball and without it. For the fourth game we keep a clean sheet, it’s fantastic,” Conte said.“It’s early for us to speak about title contenders. We have to work very hard to continue. We can improve a lot. We must improve.”last_img read more

The 72kg Women’s Open Raw, which was won by Chitra John and the 84+kg Women’s Open Raw, which was won by Esther Maycock.The men had the bulk of the record-breaking performances and several of the established names were able to excel.

Backups get practice time as injured rest

first_imgThe bye week couldn’t have come at a better time for the Trojans.Like father, like son · USC coach Lane Kiffin and his father, defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, have used the bye week to prepare for Oregon. – Mannat Saini | Daily Trojan Without the pressure of an impending game and the necessity to work out all the kinks by Saturday, the coaching staff can let players rest and recover from nagging injuries.The entire starting offensive line, beside redshirt sophomore Matt Kalil, sat out or was limited during practice. Senior center Kristofer O’Dowd rested what he called a “strained shoulder.”He was seen at the beginning of practice wearing a wrap around his shoulder, which was removed by the end of the practice session. He expressed no doubt he’d be ready for the game against Oregon on Oct. 30 and said he was expecting a Tuesday return. He called sitting out a preventative measure to ensure full health.Junior tackle Tyron Smith sat out with an ankle injury, and senior guard Butch Lewis sat out with an undisclosed injury. Redshirt sophomore guard Khaled Holmes was limited and sat on a training table during the second half of practice.“As we’ve said all along, hopefully we get these guys back by Monday, and be ready to go with a full week of practice,” said USC coach Lane Kiffin.—With all the injuries and the lack of depth on the team, the bye week functions as a training ground for the younger players to earn playing time and demonstrate to the coaching staff whether their talents can translate to the collegiate level.The Trojans spent significant time in a four wide receiver set from the shotgun to simulate the style of play of the highly touted, high-scoring Oregon offense.Sophomore quarterback Matt Barkley was hurrying the team to the line and coaches were emphasizing quickness and speed on both sides of the ball.During a receivers and defensive backs drill, Kiffin told his players to ask themselves, “How am I going to tackle the fastest team in the country?”It was a common line from the coaching staff during the moments when the team was working on full-speed drills, especially during the scrimmage at the end of practice.—Freshman running back D.J. Morgan got a number of carries during Thursday’s practice, even with the first-team offense.He broke one of his carries for a touchdown and was picking up a number of yards on each attempt.Kiffin praised Morgan on his ability and said that it was promising that the freshman was able to show off his skill set in practice.“This is the first week that we’ve been able to see a lot with him,” Kiffin said. “He looks very explosive, even though he’s not 100 percent yet.”last_img read more

Men’s basketball picks up key recruits

first_imgTrevor Sochoki | Daily TrojanSummer in Southern California normally means one thing: USC football is right around the corner. Fresh off a Rose Bowl victory, Heisman-hopeful quarterback Sam Darnold stayed healthy while his sophomore coach, Clay Helton, welcomed a highly ranked recruiting class.Normally, that is enough to satiate Trojan fans’ title-thirsty anticipation. Yet for one sunshiny week at the end of June, another program shared the limelight.From June 26 through July 2, the men’s basketball team received three commitments from four-star recruits: forward J’Raan Brooks, guard Kevin Porter and forward Taeshon Cherry (who some scouts list as five-star). At the time, the trio gave the Trojans the top 2018 recruiting class per Only last week did conference rival Arizona edge USC out, when five-star point guard Jahvon Quinerly committed to the Wildcats. With their rapid growth, the Trojans have a legitimate chance to reach the Final Four as early as this season — a sentence that may still sound far-fetched to many USC fans. But it’s true: Head coach Andy Enfield’s squad figures to be a preseason top-15 team, and last year’s entire rotation will return.The Trojans also welcome a top-30 recruiting class led by two four-star shooting guards: Jordan Usher from Marietta, Ga., and Las Vegas native Charles O’Bannon, Jr., whose father started at power forward on UCLA’s 1995 NCAA Championship team. Seven-foot center Victor Uyaelunmo, from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., rounds out the class of freshmen.But the newcomer most likely to contribute immediately is Duke transfer Derryck Thornton, now eligible after sitting out last season. Thornton was the top-ranked transfer in 2016 after starting 22 games at point guard for a Final Four Blue Devils team loaded with talented stars such as guard Grayson Allen and forward Brandon Ingram. USC could form a superteam of its own this season pending a final recruiting twist. The top prospect in the class of 2018, power forward Marvin Bagley III, has petitioned the NCAA to reclassify for this year. Although Bagley would forgo his senior year in high school and the extra year of development that comes with it, scouts still consider him a potential No. 1 draft pick next year. He has listed USC and Duke as his top two colleges ahead of powerhouses Arizona, Kansas, UCLA and Kentucky. If all goes smoothly, he could dawn a Trojan uniform as early as this fall. If not, Enfield will hope at minimum Bagley does not choose a Pac-12 rival.But the Trojans want him badly. According to Sports Illustrated, Enfield has not only offered a scholarship to Bagley, but also to his sophomore brother, Marcus, plus their 7-year-old brother, Marlay. USC has already filled all 13 scholarships for the 2017-18 school year, but someone could be on the move whether or not Bagley arrives. With Usher, O’Bannon and Thornton in the fold, the roster is flush with guards. The list goes on: returning senior captain Jordan McLaughlin, senior Elijah Stewart, sophomores De’Anthony Melton and Jonah Mathews and redshirt sophomore Shaqquan Aaron.Enfield could choose any number of rotations from this group, but the depth at his disposal could be a blessing and a curse. Only three of these players can start as long as junior forwards (and NBA Draft prospects) Chimezie Metu and Bennie Boatwright stay healthy. The rest will be strapped for minutes. At least one player — likely more — is bound to be unhappy. Someone could transfer before the season begins. If not, maintaining chemistry may be challenging even if the team is winning at a program-record pace. Enfield faced the opposite problem last season. During some rough stretches, it appeared they could barely field a starting five. McLaughlin and Metu, the Pac-12 Most Improved Player, were the only consistent contributors. Stewart and Aaron showed flashes of brilliance but then disappeared for weeks. Aaron, the Louisville transfer, even won Pac-12 Player of the Week in late January when his 23-point performance led the Trojans to a stunning upset over No. 8 UCLA at the Galen Center. Throughout the rest of the season, however, he scored in double digits just twice; and in three NCAA Tournament games, he did not score in 23 minutes of play.While USC is rich at guard, it enjoys less depth at forward. Behind Boatwright and Metu stands a giant question mark as sophomores Nick Rakocevic and Harrison Henderson andthree-star recruit Victor Uyaelunmo complete the roster. Should either starter get hurt, Enfield must either play small or trust one of these three to shoulder the remaining weight.Last year when Boatwright missed 17 games, Rakocevic received plenty of playing time. While he impressed at times, he also floundered when matched-up against first-round NBA draft picks such as Ivan Rabb and Lauri Markkanen. Meanwhile, Henderson played just 50 minutes the entire season, and Uyaelunmo awaits his collegiate debut.Despite USC’s depth dichotomy, the program’s recent recruiting prowess has given Enfield a significant boost. Just last summer, the verdict was still out after his best players and earliest recruits, Julian Jacobs and Nikola Jovanovic, forwent their senior year for the draft only to fail to make NBA rosters. Consequently, most experts tempered expectations for the Trojans and essentially adopted the mantra “What Could Have Been?” After being mere minutes away from the Sweet Sixteen last season, the sky is the limit for the Enfield era. For the first time in his five-year tenure, Enfield has established senior leaders in McLaughlin and Stewart, and he will not have to rely on a host of freshmen starters. If likely draft picks Boatwright and Metu stay healthy, the Trojans could conceivably win their first conference title since 2009 — andmaybe play basketball into April. But even in the case of Murphy’s Law — if injuries strike, Boatwright and Metu forgo their senior seasons and Bagley chooses UCLA — USC still looks set to compete for the foreseeable future. It is only a matter of time before Trojan fans start dividing their summers evenly between football and basketball recruiting.last_img read more

Ghana begins on strong foot at NorthWest Africa Women’s Cricket tournament

first_imgGhana began on a strong foot at the 2nd edition of the Africa Cricket Association NorthWest Africa women’s tournament on Friday.Ghana is hosting three other West African countries; Nigeria, Sierra Leone and the Gambia at the Achimota Cricket Oval for the three-day tournament. The host nation opened up the tournament against the Gambia and did not hesitate to sound a strong note of caution. The Gambia batted first and scored 110 runs, a third of which came from wide and no balls, losing 5 wickets in 20 overs.Ghana, therefore, required a run rate of 5.5 per over but incredibly pushed the notch higher to do 9.25 runs per over, scoring an incredible 111 runs in a little over twelve overs, losing only three wickets. Ghana thus won the game by seven wickets. In the day’s other game which was played simultaneously at the second oval in Achimota, Nigeria and Sierra Leone both tried to out-play each other defensively. They prevented each other from scoring many runs.The Nigerians bated first and scored 65 runs, losing 5 wickets in 20 overs. Sierra Leone needed only 14.1 overs to win by scoring 68 runs for 7 wickets.last_img read more

first_imgSenior FootballNaomh Mhuire got off to a strong start against Buncrana at the Scarvey on Sunday and went in 07-to 02 at half-time. Buncrana fought back valiantly in the second half but were unable to close the deficit. Simon Cuffe and William McLaughlin performed well for Buncrana on the half-back line and Christy Bell did well in the middle of the park. Due mainly to some inconsistent results from most teams in division three this season Buncrana still sit top of the league. The final score was 1-9 to 1-12. Naomh Mhuire reserves also edged ahead of Buncrana reserves. On Saturday 1st October, Buncrana travel to Carndonagh. Throw-in time is 2:30pm.

The Ulster Council supports over 250,000 volunteers working in 580 constituent GAA clubs and approximately 600 constituent educational units across the Province.BORD na nÓG Colaiste Inis EoghainA draw was probably a fair result at the end of an entertaining Rannafast Cup Section A game, played in Muff on Friday afternoon 23rd September. Going into the game Macartans would have been strong favourites to return home with the two points, having only suffered two defeats in two years, losing in a Corn na nOg semi final in 2009 and again to St Pats Maghera in the Brock Cup Final last year.The Monaghan boys started off brightly and had the ball in the net after just three minutes, following a fine move on the left, which carved an opening for David McAllister to slot home. Inis Eoghain began to find their feet, but they were guilty of missing a number of easy scores, following good approach play. Tom Hayes added a second point for Macartans on eleven minutes and by the end of the first quarter looked to be in complete control. The home side made a number of positional switches, with Kevin McLaughlin moving to midfield alongside Conor Harkin and their domination helped to set up Darragh O Connor for their first score on fourteen minutes. Midfielder Thomas Lynch restored the visitor’s three-point advantage when he fired over on nineteen minutes. The final seven minutes of the half belonged to the lively Darragh O Connor, first he hit a point on twenty-three minutes and then in a three minute spell before the break, he opened up the Monaghan defence to fire home two superb strikes to give the home side a lead of 2.02 to 1.02Inis Eoghain stretched their lead immediately after the break when Darragh O’Connor fired over another point, but Christopher McAneneley responded two minutes later with a fine score from play. Buncrana youngster John Campbell, playing at full forward made his mark on the game for the home side on forty-three minutes with a long range point and then two minutes later he somehow managed to get his hand to a high ball on the edge of the square to flick it to the net for to stretch the lead to seven points as the game entered the final quarter.St Macartans upped their game at this stage, showing a lot of quality play to score three unanswered points through Christopher McAneneley, Jason McHugh and the impressive Conor McCarthy. Inis Eoghain stretched their lead again to five through a point from Kevin McLaughlin and looked set to score a memorable victory, with just five minutes left on the clock. Kevin Loughran had different ideas, as he pushed forward from half back, starting and finishing a fine move to find the back of the net and it was game on, as St Macartans sensed panic in the home defence. The visitors finished in a flurry, Christopher McAneneley reduced the deficit to a point and then Conor McCarthy, who had an outstanding game in the middle of the park hit the equalising point in added time, much to the delight of the visiting support. Overall an entertaining game played on a fine surface at Muff, and despite a strong swirling wind and both sides will be pleased with their first outing, knowing the result could have gone either way. Best for Inis Eoghain were, Darren Gallagher, Conor Harkin, Darragh O Connor and Kevin McLaughlin, while Kevin Loghran, Christopher McAneneley David McAllister and man of the match Conor McCarthy.Colaisti Inis Eoghain: Caolan McGonagle, Danny Monagle, Kieran O’Connor, Shane McLaughlin, Ryan Doherty, Aaron Friel, Tony McCleneghan, Conor Harkin, Fergal Doherty, Darren Gallagher, Darragh O’Connor (2.02), Kevin McLaughlin, (0.01), Adam Byrne, Ciaran Diver, John Campbell (1.01), Conor Byrne, Niall Diver, Ciaran Hirrel, Ruairi Bradley, Georgie Kelly, Mark Doherty, Caolan McLaughlin, Jamie McLaughlin, Conor Doherty.www.ulstercollegesgaa.orgUnder 10 Hurling Blitz Our club hosted a well attended u10 hurling blitz on Sunday which was kindly sponsored Kavanaghs Supervalue Buncrana, Tommy O’Neills team preformed well only losing one match to Setanta. and winning three.Under 13 HurlingThe u13 hurlers finished top of their group and are through to the semi-final of Division 1 of the Northwest league, they beat Dungannon in Banagher on Sunday last in impressive fashion.

first_imgDeputy Charlie McConalogue has slammed the news that NO new Gardai will be coming to Co Donegal despite the recent spate of criminality.No new Gardai will be coming to Donegal.The Dail was told that there are currently 412 Gardai and 29 Garda Reserves serving the entire county.But Deputy McConalogue says this is down from 466 in recent years. And the Fianna Fail TD said once again that Donegal is a special case because of its close proximity to the border.“The Minister for Justice is just not listening to the fact that Donegal is a special case and recent weeks has shown that once again.“The Minister says that he will continue with intelligence-led operations ro combat crime but that is only one aspect of policing.“The bottom line remains that there is no greater deterrent to criminals than to see Gardai on the street. “The reality is that numbers for Gardai in Donegal have reduced from 466 to 412 which is around a 12% reduction.“That is sending out all the worng messages to criminals that they can just use the border areas to come and go.“We have seen evidence of this in recent weeks with incidents along the border,” he said. OPEN SEASON FOR CRIMINALS AS JUSTICE MINISTER SNUBS DONEGAL was last modified: December 13th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:Charlie McConalogueGardaiJUSTICE MINISTERlast_img read more

first_imgEXCLUSIVE: GARDAI in County Donegal have smashed two separate drugs rings after raids today.Officers seized cannabis with an estimated value of €120,000 in the townland of Leitir, Kilmcrennan.More than 150 plants were found in two grow houses after the raid which was led by local detectives investigating organised crime gangs. In a separate investigation officers seized €20,000 worth of cannabis from a house in Milford.The estimated value of the drugs is subject to examination.Donegal Daily understands the seizure in Milford – at a property at Aras Ui Domhnaill – came after a nationwide crackdown on drugs gangs using rural counties to grow cannabis.Sources in Sligo say today’s raids are linked to a seizure there. One man and one woman have been arrested and a quantity of cannabis herb has been seized following a stop and search of a vehicle in Ballymote last night.Gardaí stopped a car on the N4, Castlebaldwin, Ballymote, said a spokesman.When the car was searched Gardaí recovered 4 Kg of cannabis resin with an estimated street value of €80,000 subject to analysis.The two occupants of the car, a man in his mid 30s and a woman in her mid 20s, were arrested at the scene. They are currently detained at Ballymote Garda station under Section 2 of the Criminal Justice (Drug Trafficking) Act 1996 and can be detained for up to seven days.Following today’s raids one man has been detained by Gardai and is being questioned in Letterkenny.

Caution urged as further snow-ice warning issued

first_imgThere is no let up to the cold snap as Met Éireann has issued a new nationwide snow-ice warning as more wintry showers are forecast for tomorrow night.Scattered snow showers are expected tomorrow night and into Friday morning, with accumulations of less than 3cm possible.They warn of slippery paths and roads due to the accumulation of ice on untreated surfaces. The warning comes into effect tomorrow evening at 9pm, and will remain in place until 12 noon on Friday.The regional forecast suggests that tomorrow will be mostly mild with the risk of thundery showers before temperatures dip in the evening.“Some of the showers in the west will turn heavy and possibly thundery during the afternoon and evening. Highs of 5 to 8 Celsius in light to moderate southwest breezes, which will increase fresh to strong near the west coast,” Met Éireann says.The heavy snowfall across Donegal last night rendered the roads treacherous, with emergency services attended the scene of an accident N13 road at Drumkeen on the Letterkenny to Ballybofey Road. There were several reports of cars slipping off roads across the county, with a Letterkenny motorist colliding with a stop sign yesterday evening and a Toyota Avensis sliding into a ditch on the road between Fintown and Meenaroy this morning. A car slipped into a ditch on the road between Fintown and Meenaroy in the early hours of this morning. Picture by Tomo Pattison.Picture by Tomo Pattison.Gardaí are asking road users to exercise caution and to keep up to date with weather alerts and traffic conditions during the cold snap.They urge motorists to reduce their speed and increase braking distances, use dipped headlights at all times, give extra space to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.Gardaí also advise cyclists and motorcyclists to consider alternative transport where necessary and ask pedestrians to walk on the right hand side of the road facing traffic if there are no footpaths.You can keep up to date on gritting information by following Donegal County Council on Twitter @RoadsDCC or @DonegalCouncil or on their Donegal County Council Facebook page.Caution urged as further snow-ice warning issued was last modified: February 9th, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:Met Eireannsnow ice warningweatherlast_img read more

Nightly water restrictions planned to save for busy Easter period

first_imgIrish Water is to issue nightly water restrictions from tomorrow (Mon) night in the Rossnowlagh and Ballyshannon areas. The company said it is preparing for increased demand for water during the Easter bank holiday weekend and is putting plans in place to safeguard supply for homes, businesses and tourists during this busy period.The issue was raised at this week’s meeting of the local municipal authority by Cllr Michael Naughton. Irish Water will need to restrict water supply at nighttime over the coming weeks to fill treated water storage reservoirs.Beginning tomorrow water supply will be restricted each night from 11pm to 7am for customers supplied from the Ballyshannon Public Water Supply Scheme in the Rossnowlagh area during the Easter Holiday season.Tankers will be available to assist in maintaining reservoir levels. The use of tankers is not a sustainable option and Irish Water is appealing to residents, businesses and visitors to reduce their usage to ensure a consistent supply of water for all.Kevin Love Irish water stated “We are managing water supply at the minute but when activity increases due to increased demand over the Easter holidays we will start to run out. “Irish Water, is upgrading the pumping system supplying water to the Rossnowlagh area to cater for the increased demand for high quality drinking water in Rossnowlagh during the holiday season. Irish Water is also urging residents, businesses and visitors in Rossnowlagh to conserve water to help prevent any supply shortages later in the summer.“However it would be very helpful if customers started to conserve water now before demand increases. Customers on higher ground may experience more interrupted supply and we are urging those customers to contact the Irish Water call centre where they experience prolonged outages on 1850 278 278.”The company is replacing 4.1km of problematic water main on R-231 at Corker, Ballyshannon at the end of April 2019 which should help with securing a constant water supply at Rossnowlagh.It is expected that works will last for approximately five weeks.This will result in an improved level of service for consumers being served from this watermain and a reduction in leakage.There will be traffic management in place during these works and Irish Water is working to minimise disruption to consumers and the travelling public during these essential works. To help conserve water customers are also being asked to report any leaks they see on the public network and to repair any private side leaks in their homes and businesses to help restore water levels in the network. Customers can report any public side leaks online at or by calling the customer care helpline 24/7 on 1850 278 278.Irish Water and Donegal County Council have apologised for any inconvenience caused and would like to thank the public in advance for their co-operation.Updates will be issued on the water storage levels at the reservoirs and consumers will be advised when they can return to normal usage.Nightly water restrictions planned to save for busy Easter period was last modified: April 14th, 2019 by StephenShare 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:EasterIrish WaterRossnowlaghlast_img read more

Lyme Disease warning signs to be erected in Letterkenny-Milford area

first_imgCouncillors of the Letterkenny-Milford area have passed a motion calling for signs to alert the public to the dangers of contracting Lyme Disease from ticks.The council will work with the National Parks and Wildlife Service to explore options for placing signage at Glenveagh National Park and local woodlands.The signs are expected to be proposed countywide after Letterkenny-Milford Municipal District Mayor John O’Donnell raised the matter with the local authority on Tuesday. Cllr O’Donnell said that many local Lyme Disease sufferers brought the issue to his attention.Lyme disease is a debilitating bacterial infection that is spread to humans by infected ticks. Not every tick carries Lyme, but it is estimated that 6-10% of the insects are carriers.Cllr O’Donnell said that awareness of the illness is growing as more people get diagnosed. However, those who can afford to Germany for specific diagnoses are facing significant challenges as their results are often not recognised by Irish doctors.Cllr O’Donnell welcomed the response from the council as they plan to contact the National Parks and Wildlife Service under the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.  Small area of Donegal seeing high incidence of Lyme Disease, says expertLyme Disease warning signs to be erected in Letterkenny-Milford area was last modified: September 12th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:Cllr John O’Donnellletterkenny-milford municipal districtLyme Diseasetickslast_img read more

Labor Day Thoughts on Unemployment and Weatherization

first_imgI’ve been thinking more than usual this Labor Day weekend about putting Americans to work while solving our energy crises. If our goals are to reduce unemployment, reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, and improve all the buildings that are bleeding energy into the night sky, we need a better way to sell and finance home energy weatherization contracts.The problem: how we sell weatherization workNeed-driven solar subsidies and PACE-type loan programs require the initiative to come from the client. But most people are not very motivated to save energy unless the improvements are free or “pay for themselves.” They aren’t likely to pick up the phone and call for an energy audit, let alone schedule the small improvements that would actually have decent payback.If, instead of a need-based subsidy, future tax credit, or any type of home-equity loan, we could sell $600 to $6,000 audit / weatherization packages as contract add-ons to the electrical connection, we could cut the paperwork and dramatically simplify the sales process. Instead of advertising to motivate customers to act, weatherization companies could target neighborhoods with door hangers and a deal where all you have to do is get a quick “energy nosebleed” audit, sign a contract agreeing to have the cost of the audit and repairs added to your monthly utility bill proportional to the anticipated cost savings, and give the utility permission to stop service for non-payment.I can’t believe what I’m seeingI’m talking about the little “I can’t believe what I’m seeing here” energy nosebleeds I see in middle-class homes and starter mansions: the disconnected, torn, or crushed AC supply ducts in the attic; the powered attic ventilators that are sucking conditioned air out of houses; the unsealed and uninsulated kitchen soffits; the inadequate attic ventilation; the tub drain cut-outs, HVAC chases, and skylight chases that are draining energy from homes. These problems don’t cost much to fix, and the payback for the repair work is decent compared with solar panels and new windows.The contract add-on would be similar to the way some cable TV and internet is sold, as an add-on to the phone bill. There would be no impact on home equity, no need for an additional credit check, as that is in place from the original utility connection. The preliminary audit would identify the “nosebleeds” that would have payback equivalent to the cost of the service during the time-frame of the agreement. Owner-occupied homes would be the logical target, but the pay-by-utility bill approach could work for rentals and light commercial properties as well.There would have to be language in the contract to cover payment or transfer at sale of the property as well as to cover situations where service cancellation due to non-payment could damage property or occupant health.The sales would be handled by weatherization contractors; all the utility would do is pass on the payment. Licensed energy auditors would find the nosebleeds as part of the sales team for the weatherization companies.Quality control would be managed through state energy office, with spot checks similar to termite-treatment companies. The same energy offices could manage the financial end, as middleman between investment firms selling green investment bonds and the weatherization companies signing on to sell and install large amounts of weatherization. Community colleges could train auditors, installers, and managers.This would allow weatherization companies to go door-to-door promoting a low-cost home energy tune-up with zero cash outlay, no impact on home equity, and minimal inconvenience to the occupants in the execution of the work — 100% financed by energy savings. This way, rather than waiting for the consumer to call and set up an appointment, a company can target whole neighborhoods and sign up a large percentage of the homes in a subdivision and reach some economies of scale and efficiencies of neighborhood implementation.Subsidized weatherization skews the value of for-profit weatherizationI’m opposed to subsidies for solar and weatherization, because I believe they skew the value of the work, creating the impression that it “isn’t worth it” unless subsidized. People will buy as much solar as the government will subsidize, and stop there. They like getting something for nothing, and if they can get up to a certain part of solar at half price, they wonder why they should pay full price for additional capacity.Even fully subsidized “free” weatherization for low-income families is problematical, because middle-class and wealthy people live and work in buildings that can save energy with modest weatherization improvements; since some people get this work for free, it sets the expectation that the work shouldn’t be expensive.I’m equally opposed to subsidies for the gas, nuclear, and coal industries. When gas goes over $3.50 a gallon, people sell gas-guzzlers and buy mopeds and hybrids, or they plan their driving so they can drive less. Once gas prices stabilize, we see new Mustangs and monster trucks on the highways.Rather than spending stimulus money on rebuilding roads, let’s just change the way we sell weatherization. We should invest in research and education to retrain our own people to reduce our need for energy through American ingenuity. We can put people to work at the same time that we reduce the deficit.Author’s note: These opinions are mine alone and don’t necessarily reflect those of others who contribute to or frequent this site.last_img read more

The New DJI Phantom 4 Cuts Through the Sky on Its Own

first_imgThe DJI Phantom 4 (priced at $1399) has more built-in cameras and sensors, twice as many as the previous Phantom 3. Not only do these advanced electronics help avoid obstacles, they keep the Phantom 4 absolutely still when holding its position.The new magensium core makes the Phantom 4 a stronger, more rigid drone without compromising weight. The new shell is more aerodynamic, allowing you to cut through the sky. The weight and flight advancements have allowed DJI to increase the Phantom’s flight time to an average of 28 minutes. That’s 25% longer than the Phantom 3.The new Phantom 4 camera features 4K video up to 30fps and 1080p up to 120fps. The aspherical lens offers a 94-degree field of view, reduces distortion by 36% and chromatic aberration by 56% versus the Phantom 3. The shorter hyperfocal length will allow you to get closer to an object and keep them in focus.TapFlyImage via DJI The DJI Phantom 4 doesn’t even require the pilot to use the sticks on the radio controller anymore. In its simplest TapFly mode, you can just tap on your tablet and the Phantom 4 does everything for you.Want to fly between some trees, but you’re not confident in your piloting skills? Just open the live video feed, double tap a location on your tablet, and the Phantom 4 will start flying autonomously. The new Obstacle Sensing System will maneuver the Phantom 4 on its own, avoiding people, trees, buildings, etc. The new DJI Phantom 4 drone almost flies itself. Take a closer look at the the fastest and smartest Phantom yet.Top image via DJIThe leader in drone production, DJI, has packaged many of their best features (and those of competitors) into a new ultimate aircraft. If you are a beginner, this drone is perfect for you. If you are an advanced pilot, this drone still makes you want to reach for your wallet. Let’s take a look at the newest features. Image via DJIThe Verge got to talk to the DJI Phantom 4 development team about many of the latest features.It’s the first consumer unit that can see the world around it and adjust accordingly, the next big step towards a truly autonomous aircraft. Try and drive it into a wall, the Phantom 4 will put on the brakes. If you ask it to fly from your position to a spot across a river, and there is a bridge in between, it will make a judgement call: increase speed to clear the obstacle or, if that isn’t possible, stop and hover in place, awaiting your next command.The Phantom 4 accomplishes this feat with the help of five cameras: two on the front and two on the bottom, plus the main 4K camera that has always been onboard to capture video. The images captured by these cameras are run through computer vision software which constructs a 3D model of the world around it that the drone can intelligently navigate. Sport ModeSport Mode gives the Phantom 4 incredibly responsive controls. Using the controller, easily speed through the air and maneuver your craft with ease. The built-in gimbal and new battery are positioned near the aircraft’s center of gravity, offering more precise movements. The new raise motors increase torque, and offer a more reliable flight control and safer flight at high speeds.center_img ActiveTrackImage via DJIThe new ActiveTrack feature allows the Phantom 4 to track a subject automatically. With your tablet, trace around the subject you want to keep in frame. The onboard computer then builds a 3D model of the subject and begins following immediately.You can then use the remote controller to make small adjustments to the focus, framing, or camera settings. The Phantom 4 perfectly executes a 360-degree orbit with this new feature. Set the ActiveTrack border around your subject, and then just throttle the stick to the left or right.

Romelu Lukaku rates himself among world’s top strikers

first_imgEverton’s Romelu Lukaku has described himself as one of the most gifted strikers in world football after scoring 25 goals in all competitions for his Premier League club last season. (FULL SQUADS: SPAIN | ENGLAND | GERMANY | FRANCE | CZECH REPUBLIC | PORTUGAL)Despite his form in front of goal Everton finished 11th and sacked manager Roberto Martinez, although Lukaku still rates the season as his finest in terms of individual achievement.”I’m among the best. That’s good. Personally I am happy,” Lukaku said in an interview with the June edition of World Soccer magazine. “I did expect to produce a season of this calibre.”The 23-year-old is part of Belgium’s squad for this month’s European Championship in France, where his team play Italy, Ireland and Sweden in Group E.Lukaku, who may face club mates Seamus Coleman, Aiden McGeady and James McCarthy when Belgium play Ireland on June 18, said the prospect of going head-to-head with them at the Euros had been part of the dressing room banter at the club.”They are happy to be going to France and warn me that they are going to make life difficult for us. I jokingly reply that we won’t be easy meat,” the Belgian said.Eveton have yet to appoint a replacement for Martinez.last_img read more

Nova Scotia British Columbia to Share Marine Renewable Development Information

first_imgThe provinces of Nova Scotia and British Columbia have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will encourage greater collaboration on tidal energy research and policy development. The memorandum, signed by Energy Minister Charlie Parker and British Columbia Energy, Mines and Natural Gas Minister Rich Coleman, will help advance extracting renewable energy from offshore wind, waves and tides, as well as river currents. It was signed during the federal, provincial and territorial Energy and Mines Ministers’ meeting in Charlottetown. “This is an important step in supporting small-scale tidal energy projects that could be developed near rural communities, providing community and economic benefits in both provinces and in other parts of Canada,” said Mr. Parker. “Partnerships and collaboration like this one will advance the industry in Nova Scotia and help ensure a consistent regulatory framework across the country.” “By working together, British Columbia and Nova Scotia can support marine renewable energy research and development and provide regulatory certainty to investors and project developers by developing a clear regulatory and permitting pathway for projects,” said Mr. Coleman. “British Columbia and Nova Scotia have coastal resources that include wind, tidal and wave energy. There are opportunities to provide power to coastal and First Nations communities, many currently served by diesel power.” Nova Scotia is a world leader in in-stream tidal technology development with the Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy in the Bay of Fundy. Research is also being done by the Offshore Energy Research Association of Nova Scotia on tidal energy impacts, environmental affects and monitoring. In May, Nova Scotia released its Marine Renewable Electricity Plan to guide ocean energy resources development into affordable clean, renewable electricity, and use that to build exports. British Columbian companies have developed innovative in-stream turbines and wave-energy converters to generate electricity from ocean as well as river currents. Many B.C. sites are being examined for ocean energy potential. One pilot project has produced electricity from tidal currents, while three others aim to show innovative wave and tidal energy technology in the waters around Vancouver Island. All jurisdictions involved in marine renewable energy, including Nova Scotia, B.C., the U.S. and the U.K., support incremental development to build technical knowledge and allow research on ecological impacts, and community and public engagement.last_img read more

The Monday news briefing An ataglance survey of some top stories

first_imgHighlights from the news file for Monday, Oct. 16———AMID BACKLASH, LIBERALS TRIM SMALL-BIZ TAX: The Trudeau government took the first of several steps Monday to stanch the bleeding from a self-inflicted political wound, resurrecting a campaign promise to cut taxes for small businesses outraged by its controversial tax-reform proposals. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to gradually trim the small-business tax rate to nine per cent by 2019, down from its current level of 10.5 per cent, and also to make further changes to the plan that triggered the angry backlash from entrepreneurs in the first place. Doctors, lawyers, accountants, shop owners, farmers, premiers and even some Liberal backbenchers have denounced the tax proposals, contending they’d hurt the very middle class Trudeau claims to be trying to help. In hope of calming critics, Trudeau also announced Monday he will abandon at least one of the tax-reform elements: changing the lifetime capital gains rule, which is an adjustment intended to avoid negative impacts on the intergenerational transfer of family businesses, like farms.———SOMALI-CANADIANS LEFT REELING AFTER BOMBING: Somali-Canadians say they’re in shock after a bomb blast killed hundreds of people in Mogadishu on Saturday, and they’re calling on the federal government to help those affected by the attack. More than 300 people were killed and nearly 400 others are injured, many badly burned, after the truck bombing on a crowded street in Somalia’s capital. Jibril Ibrahim, president of the Somali Canadian Cultural Society of Edmonton, says the country has been devastated by the attack and the Canadian government should be offering help. Ibrahim says the Canadian government should work to help get the wounded out of Mogadishu and into places where they can get adequate medical treatment. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has tweeted his condolences to the Somali-Canadian community and the family and friends of those who lost their lives in the attack, but Global Affairs did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether the government would send increased aid to the region in the wake of the bombing.———PHARMACISTS WANT EXPANDED ROLE IN OPIOID CRISIS: The head of the BC Pharmacy Association says chronic opioid users in rural and remote communities should have access to supervised injectable treatment that is already available in the Vancouver area. Geraldine Vance says the overdose epidemic demands immediate involvement by community pharmacists and up to 20 pilot projects should be started in under-served parts of British Columbia. Vance says there’s already a pilot study in Vancouver to expand on injectable treatment provided at the city’s Crosstown clinic, where patients receive hydromorphone and pharmaceutical-grade heroin. She says that service needs to be expanded to areas where overdose deaths have increased dramatically, and pharmacists could help play a vital role in dispensing the drug and monitoring patients. Vance says her association has been in discussions with the BC Centre on Substance Use and the BC Centre for Disease Control since the spring about how pharmacists could be involved.———FAMILY OF INDIGENOUS GIRL FROZEN TO DEATH TESTIFIES: Family members of a 16-year-old Indigenous girl who was found frozen to death behind an auto body shop in Winnipeg say they do not want her death to be in vain. Relatives of Nicole Daniels were the first to testify as the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women opened four days of hearings in the Manitoba capital. Daniels was found face down in the snow in April 2009, the morning after, her family says, she had gone out with a middle-aged man she had met on a telephone chat line. An autopsy showed she had a high level of alcohol in her system and died from hypothermia. The police ruled out foul play. Her aunt, Joan Winning, says the teen’s clothes were undone, and that — along with other factors — leaves the family convinced that she was murdered. Nicole’s cousin, Isabel Daniels, told the hearing society sees Indigenous women as disposable and that has to change.———LOBLAW TO LAY OFF 500 PEOPLE FROM OFFICE JOBS: Loblaw Companies Ltd. says it is laying off 500 workers from its office operations. President Sarah Davis wrote in a memo to employees that some of the employees were informed Monday and many of the positions will be eliminated immediately. She said the business faces growing pressures from both new costs and competition, and remains committed to reducing costs and running efficiently. Davis said Loblaw is making major investments in omni-channel, financial services and other growing areas and expects to create hundreds of near-term jobs. Spokesman Kevin Groh said the job cuts will come from its offices around the country, including Calgary, Toronto, Winnipeg, Halifax and Montreal. He said Loblaw employs about 200,000 people across Canada.———U.S. SEEKS END TO SUPPLY MANAGEMENT AS NAFTA TALKS CONTINUE: The United States has requested a complete end to Canada’s supply management system for dairy, poultry, eggs and turkey within a decade. Two sources tell The Canadian Press the request came last night at the NAFTA talks. One says the request came with an initial phase-in period of five per cent more market access per year. Both say the goal would be to end all quotas and tariffs within 10 years. They say the Canadian government is calling the idea a non-starter. The federal Liberal government has promised to maintain the protected system for supply-managed products like dairy, arguing that the U.S. maintains numerous support programs to support its own farmers. The nearly completed NAFTA round in Washington has featured a series of aggressive demands from the U.S. that have prompted fears about whether a deal is possible. The U.S. has made tough requests on auto parts, dispute-resolution mechanisms, Buy American rules, and on a so-called sunset clause that could result in NAFTA ending within five years.———ACCUSED KIDNAPPER SAYS HE WAS COERCED: One of the men accused of kidnapping Amanda Lindhout says he was forced to travel to a house outside Mogadishu where she was being held in August 2008. Testifying Monday in Ontario Superior Court, Ali Omar Ader said he had no role in planning to seize Lindhout, who was working as a journalist in Somalia. Ader said he was suddenly approached by men who told him to accompany them, or else he would die. Ader, a 40-year-old Somalian national, has pleaded not guilty to a criminal charge of hostage-taking for his alleged role as a negotiator and translator. Lindhout, a native of Red Deer, Alta., and Australian photographer Nigel Brennan were abducted by armed men while working on a story, the beginning of 15 months in captivity. Both were freed in November 2009.———HALF A MILLION STUDENTS AFFECTED BY ONTARIO COLLEGE STRIKE: Classes were cancelled for about half a million students in Ontario on Monday as faculty at the province’s colleges went on strike. The labour dispute involving more than 12,000 professors, instructors, counsellors and librarians began late Sunday after the two sides couldn’t resolve their differences by a deadline of 12:01 a.m. Monday. Both sides say there are currently no talks scheduled to end the dispute that involves Ontario’s 24 colleges. The Ontario Public Services Employees Union says it is up to the College Employer Council, which bargains for the colleges, to re-start talks. The union presented a proposal Saturday night that called for the number of full-time faculty to match the number of faculty members on contract but the colleges say it would add more than $250 million costs each year. More than 45,000 people have signed a petition calling for a tuition reimbursement for each day lost to a strike. Matthews would not comment on that idea or the possibility of eventual back-to-work legislation, saying she wouldn’t discuss hypotheticals.———POLLEY SPEAKS OUT ABOUT EXPERIENCE WITH WEINSTEIN: Canadian film and TV star Sarah Polley says Harvey Weinstein once suggested they have a “close relationship” in order to advance her career, but she turned him down. In an op-ed in the New York Times over the weekend, the Oscar-nominated actress-turned-filmmaker wrote the encounter happened when she was 19 years old and starring in the 1999 Miramax film “Guinevere.” The Toronto native says she was doing a photo shoot for the film when the fallen Hollywood producer summoned her into his office. When a publicist insisted she accompany the actress to the meeting and assured her she wouldn’t leave her side, Polley says she “knew everything I needed to know in that moment, and I was grateful.” Polley says Weinstein told her if she had a “close relationship” with him, like the one he had with a famous star a few years her senior, she could have a similarly successful career. But Polley told him she wasn’t very ambitious or interested in acting and indicated that he was wasting his time. The op-ed was published as Weinstein faces mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault in a saga that first broke in the Times.———GM WORKERS AT CAMI APPROVE DEAL: Workers at General Motors’ CAMI plant are ending their four-week strike after accepting a new contract Monday that includes higher compensation, financial penalties against GM for future layoffs and the preservation of production shifts. The contract proposal was hammered out last week and Unifor, which represents 2,500 of the 2,800 workers affected at the plant in Ingersoll, Ont., had recommended the deal be accepted. The union said almost 86 per cent of production workers and 79 per cent of tradesworkers approved the contract. About 2,400 workers voted. The automaker threatened last week to shift more production to Mexico if a settlement wasn’t reached swiftly and the two sides agreed to a deal on Friday. Workers will receive two per cent wage increases in the first and fourth year of the deal, a $6,000 signing bonus and annual payments of $2,000 each Christmas. The automaker will also be forced to pay $300 million for any future job cuts. About 400 workers are currently on layoff. Retirement packages will be offered to entice about 100 workers to leave their positions for laid-off colleagues.———last_img read more

Softball rule changing for transgender players after Edmonton coach cries foul

first_imgEDMONTON – Businessman Pete Howell was preparing to coach another season of community softball when his stepdaughter invited a transgender friend to join her on the McLeod Royals.Sports officials told him the 15-year-old had to provide medical proof of gender reassignment before she would be allowed on the Edmonton girls team.Howell was shocked.“I have three kids I signed up in the same league and they weren’t singled out. They weren’t asked questions like that,” he said. “Technically not all kids can play — as much as they talk about it — without being put to the side and having to jump through a bunch of hoops.“We’re talking community level here, not the Olympics.”Howell complained about the rule and said other parents also voiced concerns. During the controversy, the girl decided she no longer wanted to join the team.Then Howell quit as coach.“I just said, ‘You know what? Good luck, I don’t want to be part of this.’”Hugh Mitchener, chief executive officer with Softball Canada in Ottawa, said it wasn’t until the Edmonton coach cried foul that the organization learned its policy on transgender players was outdated and illegal. The federal government added gender identity and expression to the Canadian Human Rights Code last year.“I checked with our lawyer and he said, ‘Yep. It’s no longer compliant. You need to change it,’” said Mitchener.“So that’s what we quickly are doing.”A draft of the new policy, which has yet to be approved by a board of directors, allows players to join the team they self-identify with, he said.Mitchener said some provincial softball groups which had adopted the old national policy, including Softball Alberta, are being notified that a new rule will be ready in time for the upcoming season.“I regret that it’s inconvenienced anybody,” Mitchener said. “I expect that this will make it a lot more comfortable for transgender players to compete in softball.”A spokesperson with Softball Alberta could not be reached for comment.Tom Clooney, president of the Edmonton Youth Softball Association, said his group trusted national and provincial softball groups to stay on top of policies and the law.The Edmonton association is talking with lawyers and LGBTQ community associations to craft a new transgender policy that ensures “all participants feel safe, accepted and have fun,” he said.last_img read more

Sean Penn Awarded Red Cross International Humanitarian Service Award

first_imgThe American Red Cross presented Sean Penn its International Humanitarian Service Award at a ceremony on October 24, 2012.The award recognizes an individual or group whose work exemplifies or inspires the humanitarian values of human dignity, respect, compassion and the protection and assistance implied in the Fundamental Principles of the global Red Cross and Red Crescent network.Penn was chosen because of his tireless work in Haiti since the catastrophic earthquake on January 12, 2010. Shortly after learning of the quake, Penn established the J/P Haitian Relief Organization (J/P HRO), with the goal to help lift the nation of Haiti out of the rubble and give the Haitian people a better future. Earlier this year, Penn was named Ambassador at Large for Haiti by President Michel Martelly. Penn is the first non-Haitian to take on this role.J/P HRO has become a leader in Haiti across multiple sectors seeking to improve living conditions in camps and surrounding neighborhoods by clearing rubble, and providing medical services, education and enrichment programs, housing construction and neighborhood redevelopment. J/P HRO is dedicated to saving lives and bringing sustainable programs to the Haitian people quickly and effectively.“Many people – both famous and not famous – generously gave their time and support for the people of Haiti in the days following the earthquake. What sets Ambassador Penn apart is his sustained dedication over the past two and a half years to improving the conditions for Haitians affected by the devastating earthquake,” said David Meltzer, Senior Vice President, International Services, American Red Cross. “He continues to raise funds and attention for Haiti, has spent months in camps and communities working directly with beneficiaries, and consistently advocates on behalf of Haitians with the highest levels of government, civil society and media to improve people’s lives.”Penn and the American Red Cross worked together in the early days following the outbreak of cholera to offload and deliver medical supplies and equipment. He personally intervened with the Government of Haiti on behalf of the American Red Cross, and he has publicly spoken in support of American Red Cross relief and recovery efforts in Haiti.Penn, a two time Academy Award winning actor, a film writer, producer and director, is committed to the multiple social causes and has received numerous honors and awards for his efforts. He most recently was presented with the 2012 Peace Summit Award at the 12th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates.The Red Cross also presented two other awards that evening.

Vijender Gupta slams Delhi govt for not fulfilling promises

first_imgNew Delhi: The Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly, Vijender Gupta, on Sunday issued a statement claiming that his inspections of foot-over-bridges that were supposed to be completed years ago have shown that the Delhi government’s incompetence in fulfilling their promises.With poll dates drawing closer, Gupta went on a full offensive, accusing the AAP-led government in the Capital of being “useless” and blaming other forces for their flaws. The senior BJP leader claimed to have inspected foot-over-bridges that were supposed to be constructed by the Kejriwal government at Mukarba Chowk, Nirankari Samagam, Jahangirpuri, and Jagatpur. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderIn a statement, Gupta said that the only reason for construction on these bridges to be stalled was callousness displayed by the Delhi government regarding this matter. Gupta further went on to say that the construction of unfinished bridges does not require full-statehood, hence Kejriwal “has no excuse to blame the Central government or BJP for not allowing him to work.” In addition, Gupta claimed that the AAP government’s apparent inaction has led the people of Delhi to realise that BJP must come to power in the upcoming election. “The people have now made up their minds that they will teach them (AAP) a lesson in the coming Lok Sabha elections,” he said. In a tweet tagging the Chief Minister, Gupta also asked him to answer for the delay in constructing these bridges.last_img read more

Egypt officer killed in clashes with wanted militants

first_imgCAIRO- An Egyptian police officer was shot dead north of Cairo on Thursday while on a mission to arrest militants suspected of assassinating a senior security official, the interior ministry said.Captain Ahmed Samer Mahmoud was killed at dawn in an operation in the Nile Delta town of Qulubiya when a team of special forces exchanged gunfire with militants, the ministry said.The team was chasing “terrorist elements” wanted for the murder of Lieutenant Colonel Mohamed Mabruk, it said in a statement, adding that two arrests were made. Mabruk, an officer involved in the crackdown against Islamists and members of the Muslim Brotherhood to which ousted president Mohamed Morsi belonged, was shot dead on Sunday in Cairo.A Sinai-based group linked to Al-Qaeda, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, said its militants had gunned him down.Militant groups such as Ansar Beit al-Maqdis have escalated their attacks since the ouster of Morsi and have expanded to targeting security forces outside the restive Sinai Peninsula.The group had previously claimed bombing the interior minister’s convoy in a failed assassination attempt in September.Egypt’s new military-installed authorities are engaged in a crackdown on Islamist supporters of Morsi.More than 1,000 people have been killed in clashes with police since his ouster in July, and thousands have been arrested.last_img read more

Fintech challenge pushing big banks into cutting fees and offering new options

OTTAWA — Technology firms have turned several industries on their head. The way people buy books, hail a ride home from the bar or find a room for the night while on vacation have all changed.And now financial technology or fintech firms are turning their sights on the banking industry, but Canada’s big banks aren’t going to give up their dominant position without a fight.Joanna Rotenberg, head of personal wealth management at BMO Financial Group, says the needs of customers are shifting and clients are seeking out digital tools to access and manage their money.Once touted as world’s soundest, Canadian banks are falling behind global peers on a key strength gaugeIn response, earlier this year the Bank of Montreal launched its SmartFolio investment service, which offers a professionally managed portfolio online for a low fee.“It’s for clients who want support from human professionals,” Rotenberg said. “It’s not a robot behind the scenes, but people who want to be able to access that digitally versus needing the hand-holding and face-to-face support.”The BMO offering comes as companies like Wealthsimple, Nest Wealth and ModernAdvisor look to take a bite out of the big players by making easy-to-open accounts online and cheaper by using exchange-traded funds.Rotenberg says it has been more than just digital-savvy millennials opening accounts with the new BMO service, adding that it has attracted the attention of a wide range of clients in both age and amount of savings they have to invest.“You can’t stereotype people in terms of who is interested. It really is about people who are looking for something that they can use on their smartphone, but they are going to get the money management support that they need,” she said.And it isn’t just investing where the big banks are fighting off new competitors. Retail banking, long the bedrock of the big banks, is seeing new challengers offering basic banking services to Canadians who have long complained about the fees they pay.You can’t stereotype people in terms of who is interested. It really is about people who are looking for something that they can use on their smartphoneOnline banks like EQ Bank, which is backed by Equitable Bank, and Zag Bank, which is supported by Desjardins Group, have launched with promises of lower fees and high interest rates on deposits as well as apps to help people manage their money.Among the big banks, Scotiabank and its Tangerine brand is the largest player in the online banking business. The former ING Bank of Canada operations, which Scotiabank acquired in 2012, was one of the first online banks in the country.But the other big banks have also been upping their game in a bid to remain competitive by cutting fees and making it easier to open accounts and manage money online.The Royal Bank has started offering unlimited free Interac e-transfer payments for personal chequing accounts, while CIBC is offering an account with a flexible fee that varies depending on how many transactions customers make. TD Bank has launched a real-time money management app to track spending habits from eligible TD accounts and credit cards.We’re pretty lucky in a lot of ways that we’re able to work with some of the smaller playersLinda Mantia, executive vice-president, digital, payments and cards at RBC, said mobile applications have been a key focus.“There’s very few things that allow you to be more relevant to the client, more convenient to the client, more secure than other channels and obviously incredibly cost-effective,” she said.Royal Bank has recently launched a new version of its RBC Mobile and RBC Wallet apps and revamped the look of its online banking website. A redesign of its online brokerage site is on the way.Mantia said RBC both works with and competes against fintech companies.“We’re pretty lucky in a lot of ways that we’re able to work with some of the smaller players,” she said.“It is a bit win-win for us — to be scared of them, to meet with them, to visit them — because the last thing you want is for people who have always been in banking trying to reimagine banking. You need the stimulus of outsiders.” read more

Military to be disengaged from all commercial activity

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein had told the UN Human Rights Council recently that despite welcomed steps towards demilitarization after the currenjt Government took office, such as the removal of checkpoints, the military presence in the north and east remains heavy and a culture of surveillance and, in certain instances, intimidation and harassment persists.He had also said that former detainees released after rehabilitation and civil society groups working with victims continue to face regular security checks and questioning about their work. (Colombo Gazette) The Foreign Minister said the Government wants to ensure military activities in the North and East are on par to what is seen in other parts of the country. Tamil political parties and groups have been calling on the Government to reduce the military presence in the North and East and remove the army from commercial activities.The army has been operating shops, a hotel and has been engaging in other public commercial operations since the end of the war. He noted that the Government has already replaced the military governors in the North and East with civilian governors. The military is to be disengaged from commercial activity, Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera said today.He said that the process is now underway and should be completed as part of the de-militarisation of the country by 2018. read more

Import of nonessential goods to be restricted

It was also proposed at today’s NEC that apatite of Eppawala phosphate deposit to be used for manufacturing single phosphate as a substitute to the imported triphosphate for fertilizer. This measure, it was highlighted, would help Sri Lanka prevent the outflow of important foreign exchange in the future.NEC also reviewed the present screening system at Sri Lanka customs. The NEC emphasized the need to screen all containers instead of the present system of random screening at Sri Lanka customs. The President required an urgent report on the status of the screening capacity of Sri Lanka customs.The Kaluganga basin flood control projects, that aim to control the floods that affect the mainly Rathnapura and Kaluthara cities, were taken up for discussion at the NEC. T The NEC deliberated extensively on measures that Sri Lanka should take in the context of challenges arising due to the appreciation of the US Dollar globally. Special attention was paid to restricting the import of non-essential goods as a temporary measure, while encouraging local substitutes. It was discussed to revise the measures currently in place to restrict the import of non-essential goods. The President also highlighted the importance of restricting the import of non-essential polythene products that have significant environmental concerns and impact local industries negatively. He also pointed out that the country’s prevailing negative balance of trade can be neutralized by prudent measures to revise the import of non-essential items when combined with a proper mechanism to collect the due levies at point of custom clearance. The NEC also took up some concerns of local manufacturers and traders for discussion. As such, the NEC listened to some concerns raised by the importers of sugar to Sri Lanka, who pointed out that they had to incur considerable losses when sugar is sold at the current maximum retail price. However, given the fact that global sugar prices have now decreased continuously, the NEC advised Ministry of Finance and Consumer Affairs Authority to proper mechanism address the concerns of the sugar importers.Local manufacturers of fruit drinks, presenting their concerns to the NEC, sought relief on taxes that have been imposed based on the amount of added sugar in fruit drinks. It was agreed that local fruit growers and manufacturers need to be encouraged and prioritized. As such, it was advised for NEC to appoint a committee to identify a proper mechanism to support the industry. Considering the challenges that Sri Lanka is currently facing due to global uncertainty, President Maithripala Sirisena has instructed the Ministry of Finance to submit a report on imported goods which can be temporarily restricted.The President made these remarks at the 20th session of the National Economic Council, which was held at the Presidential Secretariat this morning (Oct. 16). Ministers Mangala Samaraweera, RajithaSenarathna, Dr. Sarath Amunugama, Duminda Dissanayake, Mahinda Amaraweera, Mahinda Samarasinghe, Malik Samarawickrema, and Secretary to President Udaya R Senaviratne, Chief Economist and Secretary-General of National Economic Council Professor Lalith Samarakoon, Secretary to the Ministry of Finance Dr. R.H.S. Samaratunga, Senior Deputy Governor of the Central Bank Dr. Nandlal Weerasinghe and other officers were present at the session.

Colin Kaepernick believes he is an elite quarterback and expects to be paid as such. The San Francisco 49ers may or may not agree with him. One thing apparently is sure, according to a report: Both sides will meet in the Bay area this week to hash it out.The sides have previously been in contact and met at the NFL draft combine in February, but this upcoming session is an indication that the 49ers and Kaepernick are ready to dig in on a potential deal, according to the Sacramento Bee, which earlier reported the upcoming talks Tuesday morning.Kaepernick, 26, is entering the final season of the four-year contract he received as a second-round pick in 2011. The 49ers can give Kaepernick the franchise tag next winter if a new deal isn’t agreed upon, but the intention of the team is to get a deal done.Kaepernick is 21-8 as the 49ers’ starting quarterback and has led the team to a Super Bowl and two NFC title games.“I’m letting my agents handle all of that, and I’m worried about being out here, trying to get better with my teammates and get ready for the season,” Kaepernick said last week.  “I’m playing football regardless.”San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York, general manager Trent Baalke and coach Jim Harbaugh have all publicly said this offseason that the team’s goal is to get a new contract for Kaepernick this year.Talks have been quiet the past two months as Kaepernick has been part of an ongoing investigation in Miami for what police describe as a “suspicious incident.” Police have said Kaepernick is not a criminal suspect. Authorities hope to wrap up the investigation, which started April 3, in the coming weeks. Kaepernick has strongly denied any wrongdoing. Harbaugh has defended him publicly.Kaepernick likely will look for a salary between $18 million and $20 million. He is set to make $1.073 million this season. The 49ers have $9.142 million in salary-cap room, which is enough to fit in a deal for the quarterback. read more

Poor shooting dooms Ohio State mens basketball against Indiana 7264

Junior forward LaQuinton Ross (10) drives past an opposing player during a game against Northwestern Feb. 19 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won 76-60.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorOhio State men’s basketball coach Thad Matta said it was the little things — like missing free throws — that cost his team against Penn State last week.That song remained the same Sunday, as the Buckeyes shot 14-23 from the line compared to 17-21 for Indiana, helping the Hoosiers prevail, 72-64.The free throw line was not the only place No. 22 OSU (22-8, 9-8, sixth in the Big Ten) struggled against the Hoosiers, as the Buckeyes failed to make a 3-pointer in the game, finishing 0-11.A layup by senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. with 51 seconds left brought the Buckeyes within six points, but the Hoosiers (17-12, 7-9, seventh in the Big Ten) made enough free throws down the stretch to hold off OSU.The Buckeyes started out strong, much like they did against Penn State Thursday, and led 20-12 after a free throw by Smith Jr. at the 7:54 mark of the first half.That lead didn’t stand, however, as the Hoosiers ripped off 16 straight points to take the lead, 28-20. A pair of layups and a free throw by OSU helped to stop the bleeding, but Indiana still finished the first half on a 21-5 run on its way to a 33-25 halftime advantage.The Buckeyes attempted to fight their way back into the game for the majority of the second half, but were unable to get closer than two in the second half.Indiana was called for its ninth foul of the second half with 10:50 left, but OSU failed to take advantage of the double-bonus, only shooting five free throws for the rest of the game.OSU trailed 58-53 after a layup by junior forward LaQuinton Ross with 3:55 remaining, but Hoosiers’ sophomore forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea then finished an alley oop while getting fouled by Ross. It was Ross’ fifth personal foul of the game, and he exited with 19 points.The Buckeyes struggled the rest of the way to score without Ross on the floor, missing multiple jump shots as they tried to get back in the game.Smith Jr. also tallied 19 points for the Buckeyes, who have now lost back-to-back games after winning six out of seven previous games.The Hoosiers were led by leading scorer and sophomore guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell, who scored a game-high 20 points and dished out four assists. Senior forward Will Sheehey had 19 points and six rebounds.OSU senior guard Aaron Craft struggled offensively for the Buckeyes, going 2-11 from the field to finish with seven points. His three steals in the game gave him 324 in his career, tying him for the most all-time in the Big Ten with former Illinois guard Bruce Douglas.The loss drops OSU to sixth in the Big Ten standings, just a half game behind No. 20 Iowa and Nebraska for fourth place. The top four teams in the final Big Ten standings earn a first-round bye in the Big Ten Tournament, set to begin March 13.The Buckeyes have a week off before their next scheduled game, as they are set to host No. 18 Michigan State Sunday on Senior Day. Tipoff is slated for 4:30 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Op Ed A Jaundiced Jeffrey

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedOp-Ed: A Jaundiced JeffreyFebruary 22, 2018In “Opinion”Letter: Take a stand against authoritarianism or sit subjugated and repressedDecember 12, 2017In “Letters”Op-Ed: The Constitution will always be a hindrance to authoritarianismFebruary 16, 2018In “Opinion” By: Mohabir Anil Nandlall, MPAttorney-at-LawLast week, I examined how a democratic Constitution, with its checks and balances, poses a hindrance to authoritarianism. In order to make the essay pragmatic, I gave real-life supporting examples of how the authoritarian runs afoul of the Constitution. I chose events in the rule of Guyana’s most authoritarian politician, Mr. Forbes Burnham, historically, and actions of President David Granger, of more recent vintage, as illustrations to buttress the main plank of my proposition.That article evoked a spirited response from Dr. Henry B. Jeffrey, in his “Future notes” published on the 21st day of February, 2018, in Stabroek News, under the bold caption: “Nandlall’s flawed political theorizing”. The main reason why I chose to support my thesis with both historical and contemporary events involving prominent political personas was, precisely, to avoid theorizing in abstract. Unfortunately, my efforts failed to either persuade or impress Dr. Jeffrey, who accused me of “extremely dubious” and “flawed” political theorizing.The goodly Political Scientist begun by taking umbrage to my contention that Mr. Burnham recognised very early that he could not function under the Westminster Constitution promulgated by Great Britain, and therefore, swiftly moved to change it, eventually, scrapping it all together. He argues that Mr. Burnham operated for 16 years under that Constitution before his own creation, the 1980 Constitution, came into force. To the extent that the inherited Constitution remained in force for 16 years, Dr. Jeffrey is correct. However, he refuses to recognize the underlying and demonstrable dislike, which Mr. Burnham had for that instrument which resulted in constant, incremental, but fundamental changes, made to the Constitution, which struck at its very foundation during that period.In 1964, when Mr. Burnham took the reins of Government under a coalition, comprising of the PNC and the UF, the head of the Judiciary was the Chief Justice. The incumbent was Sir Joseph Luckhoo, a fiercely independent and outstanding jurist, with whom Mr. Burnham did not enjoy good relations. To a democrat that ought not to have mattered. Not Mr. Burnham. For an authoritarian, there must be complicity, if not subservience, in the judicial branch. In 1966, the Independence Constitution not only brought into being the Guyana Court of Appeal but the occasion was used to create a new office as head of the Judiciary. That of the Office of Chancellor – the only of its kind in the entire Commonwealth other than England, herself! To this office, Sir Kenneth Sievewright Stoby, a Guyanese, then in Barbados, was imported and installed. By these constitutional machinations, Sir Joseph Luckhoo, the sitting Chief Justice and hitherto head of the Judiciary, was unceremoniously demoted! Rather than endure such indignity, this distinguished jurist migrated from these shores and took up an appointment as President of the Jamaican Court of Appeal, where he remained up until his retirement.Republican ConstitutionThe second set of major constitutional alterations came on the 23rd day of February, 1970, with the promulgation of the Republican Constitution. This move legally severed our constitutional relationship with Great Britain and replaced the Queen as Head of State with the newly created titular President, with the head of the Executive being the Prime Minister. Thus, the Govern General, as representative of the Queen, as Head of State, was permanently removed from our constitutional infrastructure. It is this constitutional maneuver which laid the foundation for a merger of the Head of State and head of the Executive into one office, styled, the Executive President, which the 1980 Constitution birthed. This Constitution, as I explained last week, was one crafted to Mr. Burnham’s liking and was brought into force by a fraudulent referendum process.Significantly, it is the 1970 constitutional changes that abolished all appeals to Her Majesty’s Privy Council and removed that Court completely from Guyana’s legal system, making the Guyana Court of Appeal the apex of our Judiciary. The environment was, therefore, created for political interference with the Judiciary to begin.At this juncture, it is apposite that I mention that during this period, there was pending, in the court system, a legal challenge to the rigged 1968 national elections, filed by an elector. Had this challenge traveled all the way to the Privy Council, those elections, more likely than not, may have been nullified. Many believed that Mr. Burnham was not prepared to take such a monumental risk. As history has recorded, Mr. Burnham rigged several elections after that and subverted the rule of law in multiple ways. Therefore, the abolition of appeals to the Privy Council was a very calculated artifice.So, Dr. Jeffrey, while the Westminster Constitution remained in force, in six short years Mr. Burnham systematically uprooted and dismantled certain fundamentals pillars upon which it was constructed. By 1980, it was wholly replaced. I hope I have provided enough evidence to persuade you to my point.Dr. Jeffrey next posits that the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) “also ran an autocratic regime and by the time, it demitted office 60% of its own constituency and 80% of Africans did not care for them”. Dr. Jeffrey was a Minister and sat at Cabinet and in the National Assembly for 17 consecutive years in that very PPP Government. I respectfully suggest that he dedicate one edition of “Future notes” to inform what role he played in resisting the PPP’s autocracy. I hope he will not tell us that he was a mere officious bystander. That would not only be incredible but would render him equally guilty by omission. As it regards the latter part of his statement (quoted above), it took a coalition of five political parties, via questionable elections, to remove the PPP after 23 years in Government and yet, only by less than 5,000 votes. Those statistics provided by Dr. Jeffrey, therefore, cannot be correct.Guyana Bar AssociationDr. Jeffrey next attributes to me a proposition, which he labels “absurd” but which I never advanced. He writes: “Furthermore, absurd as it is, Mr. Nandlall appeared to have been suggesting that gridlock does not now exist in the appointment process…”Of course it does. It is in recognition of this gridlock that I posited that the framers of the Constitution also recognised the same and in order to break this gridlock, crafted Article 127 (2). Dr. Jeffrey does not so construe Article 127 (2). Well, I do not know for what else Article 127 (2) was intended, if not to break a gridlock, created by Article 127 (1). He then blames the PPP Government “for not making sufficient effort to use the constitutional reform process to solve the problem”. That it was the constitutional reform process that produced the “problem”, clearly eluded Dr. Jeffrey. In fact, there was no “constitutional reform process” thereafter, for the PPP to “solve the problem”.Dr. Jeffrey then advances the proposition that in his opinion, the President can still lawfully appoint his nominees to act by utilizing Article 127 (2). No, he cannot. Clearly, the goodly Doctor is wandering into territory with which he is unfamiliar. My views aside, the Guyana Bar Association in a recent missive declared that should that occur, the appointments would be “null, void and unconstitutional”.Finally, I endorse Dr. Jeffrey’s concurrence with the sentiments expressed by the President of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) that, “acting appointments for protracted periods are generally inimical to fearless, independent performance” and that “good governance and the welfare of the citizens require that the top judicial officers of Chancellor and Chief Justice be properly filled…” However, I digress sharply from the learned President of the CCJ, who places the solution in litigation. In my view, apart from making declaratory orders to the effect, that such a state of affairs is repugnant to the rule of law, a Court can do no more, having regard to the clear and express language of Article 127 (1). It cannot compel the agreement, which the Article requires. Neither can it substitute itself for those in whom the Constitution places the responsibility to procure those appointments. Should a Court endeavour to do either, it would be turning the Separation of Powers doctrine on its head. read more

No gender in life under Davy Fitz gains in the GAA and

first_img Mar 6th 2019, 7:00 AM Short URL Wednesday 6 Mar 2019, 7:00 AM 29,103 Views “I do see the value now — when you’re in the thick of things and putting in serious hours — the value of having the right people around you. Your friends and your family, that’s so important for me anyway. It’s environmental. That’s number one. “Number two: role models. You don’t see yourself as a role model, you see yourself as someone going in and getting the job done. Step up and deliver what you have to do, look to be challenged at every turn.”The 31-year-old has experienced absolutely no issues so far as a female coach — she sees herself as just a coach, plain and simple, exactly as her players and the rest of the backroom team do — and she was, in no way, forced to have a thicker skin from the get-go. In goal with Wexford in 2016. Source: Donall Farmer/INPHOShe had the confidence, and that was noted.“My own confidence was backed by a gentleman who gave me an opportunity, and that man’s name is Davy Fitzgerald,” she smiles.“There was no gender. There was someone who has achieved something and who maybe brings something different. That’s a sign of a strong leader who is willing to look outside the box and not just go to the normal tool kit and bring in the norm.“I was given an opportunity to come in last year and link in with the head goalkeeping coach. To assist him and to bring new ideas — any ideas. It was a great learning curve for me to be involved. This year I’ve taken a wider, broader stance. I’m involved in outfield collective play as well. I do a lot of face-to-face with the player.”With Chelsea Women’s Super League manager Hayes to her immediate right, D’Arcy alludes to her set-up, and her players in London. “When you’re in the professional side of sport, you have more contact with players,” she continues. “There’s an opportunity to go in from nine to four each day and see the player, talk to the player, get to know the player.“In GAA circles, you have three to four hours in the evenings. Players are coming in, stressed coming from work with stuff going on in their lives. They’re there to train.“What has evolved in the game, I think, is getting to know the player outside of the training environment. That will only bring them on in the training environment too.“I’ve loved every minute of it. I have everything positive to say about my experience. The lads are great. Davy’s a mentor. The other coaches are mentors to me as well. I have a lot to learn still, I put my hands up there.” Wexford hurling coach Mags D’Arcy. Source: Donall Farmer/INPHOWhile she says she puts them up, D’Arcy is taking that need to learn more into her own hands and using her initiative. Valentine’s Day this year was an interesting one, — she again thanks her partner — spent in London, putting in a few valuable hours with the Arsenal Women’s Super League team. Their manager, Joe Montemurro, welcomed her in with open arms to watch a training session. ‘This is just going to be everything beyond my expectation,’ D’Arcy thought to herself before watching Irish duo Katie McCabe and Louise Quinn run through their daily routine with their side.“I was just looking at it going, ‘Isn’t it fantastic to be a player able to just rock in as professionally as you can under a great coaching staff, and to be looked after to the best of their ability.’ Everything they were doing, we do it back here in Ireland in the GAA. “There was no differential in terms of what we’re trying to achieve: the game itself, the movement, the positioning of players, tactical work. We do it here but just on a lesser scale in terms of face-to-face time. “We talk about gains in the game. Gains in the game in the GAA for me is getting to develop the player off the field so when they come to training, the team has the confidence to develop to a greater height.”As she touched on earlier, being a role model is a big thing for D’Arcy. She tells a story of how in Wexford Park a few weeks ago, she was walking towards the dressing rooms with two of the senior hurlers when she heard a voice. Mags, we want your autograph…It was the father of a young girl, with D’Arcy more than happy to oblige as the two Model men’s stars shuffled on towards their destination, slightly bemused.

They were unable to field a team in an early round of the league and having lost their manager, there’s been plenty of backlash since.MC Joanne Cantwell stalls her, prying for D’Arcy’s opinion or inside knowledge, but that’s to no avail. “We’re here for a specific reason today,” the Wexford coach puts her foot down, before picking up where she was.“To be honest, I do take my role very seriously. I do want to make sure that I am challenging myself at every turn, that I’m exposing myself to as many people in the industry, and as many teams in as many sports to upskill continuously.“In this game, once you are the same as everyone else, you’re pretty much a static commodity. You have to be evolving, your thinking has to be evolving. It has helped my general play as a current club player. “Sunday didn’t go to the manner we had wished, but that’s a learning curve for me as a player and me as a wannabe coach in years to come.”After a bit more chat and further questioning of Hayes and Neville, it’s back to D’Arcy for her parting shot. D’Arcy dejected in Croke Park on Sunday. Source: Oisin Keniry/INPHOCantwell is straight in: does she see herself as the next Wexford camogie or hurling manager?“I’m still at my learning phase, I’m not getting… you’re trying to take a headline there!” she responds, to more laughter and applause from the audience. “Davy is not under threat by anything.“I think before you assert yourself in that that position, you have to do your internship as such. That’s what I frame what I’m doing at the moment.“I couldn’t be in a better environment for it. I feel quite lucky to be in the environment I’m in. For Wexford hurling, it’s three years of a three-year plan. The guys are getting stronger, more conditioned, they’re faster. It’s going to be a very exciting summer for Wexford hopefully.“We’ve utilised a lot of the panel in the league. We’re at a stage now where we have options off the bench, something every team are aspiring to have after Limerick’s state of play last year. It’s at the point now where we’re ready for silverware.”Silverware in the league, is that a priority?“Everything’s a priority, Joanne.

Génétique Homo sapiens est sorti dAfrique via la péninsule arabique

first_imgGénétique : Homo sapiens est sorti d’Afrique via la péninsule arabiquePubliant ses travaux dans la revue Molecular Biology and Evolution, une équipe internationale, a développé avec l’aide d’IBM une nouvelle approche pour étudier la diversité génétique humaine. Grâce à cela, elle a découvert une route migratoire de nos ancêtres sortis d’Afrique passant bien plus au Sud que prévu, par la côte méridionale de l’Arabie et du Moyen-Orient.Depuis 6 ans, le Genographic Project, une étude génétique internationale dirigée par le Dr Spencer Wells, s’appuie sur les puissants calculateurs du Computational Biology Center d’IBM pour explorer les modes de recombinaison au sein du génome humain. Un processus naturel qui fait se diviser et se recombiner nos molécules d’ADN.À lire aussiLa migration de millions de crabes rouges filmée sur l’île de Christmas”Près de 99% du matériel génétique d’un individu est fait de ‘couches’ d’empreintes génétiques de nombreuses lignées. Notre défi était de savoir s’il était encore possible de démêler ces lignées afin d’en comprendre les points communs. Grâce à une approche analytique et de modélisation mathématique, nous avons entrepris la tâche complexe de reconstituer l’histoire génétique d’une population”, explique ainsi Laxmi Parida, d’IBM cité par BBC News.Or, ces chercheurs ont constaté que les populations indiennes actuelles avaient une plus grande diversité génétique – donc une plus grande ancienneté – que les Européens et les Asiatiques de l’est. Ce qui suggère que les premiers Homo sapiens sortant d’Afrique (il y a 60 à 70.000 ans), plutôt que de passer par l’Égypte et le Sinaï, ont suivi une route côtière, passant (vraisemblablement à pied sec, vu le niveau de la Mer Rouge à l’époque) de la corne de l’Afrique à la Péninsule Arabique, puis longeant la côte sud de cette dernière pour atteindre, assez tôt, le sous-continent indien.”Cela suggère que d’autres domaines de recherche tels que l’archéologie et l’anthropologie devraient rechercher des indices supplémentaires sur la route de migration des premiers humains”, conclut Ajay Royyuru, co-auteur de l’étude, laquelle a utilisé du matériel génétique issu de près de 500.000 personnes du monde entier.

La tomate une pomme empoisonnée devenue fruit adulé

first_imgLa tomate, une ‘pomme empoisonnée’ devenue fruit aduléSi la tomate est aujourd’hui une composante presque essentielle de l’alimentation mondiale, cela n’a pas toujours été le cas. En effet, ses débuts de jeune première n’ont pas été si faciles, et celle-ci a dû, deux siècles durant, prouver qu’elle n’était pas toxique. Il était une fois un fruit rouge, à l’aspect lisse et aux courbes avantageuses, la tomate. Originaire d’Amérique du sud, cette espèce de plantes herbacées est aujourd’hui devenue un élément incontournable de la gastronomie de certains pays et est largement cultivée à travers le monde. Pourtant, il y a quelques siècles, l’engouement était bien moins important. Pire encore, la tomate avait été complètement laissée de côté, n’étant utilisée que pour décorer. Pourquoi un tel traitement ? Parce que le fruit a longtemps été considéré comme toxique… En effet, la tomate a été introduite en Europe, en Espagne puis en Italie, par les Espagnols au XVIe siècle, comme un aliment fort en goût et exotique. Son aspect séducteur lui vaut alors rapidement les surnoms de “pomodoro”, “pomme d’or” ou même “pomme d’amour”. Mais si elle commence à être cultivée dans quelques régions, elle est loin de séduire tout le monde, notamment en raison de ses origines. La tomate est une plante qui appartient à la même famille que la belladone, plante connue en Europe pour sa toxicité. Ainsi, au XVIe siècle, de nombreux botanistes considèrent naturellement la tomate également comme toxique et non comestible. John Gerard, un botaniste et chirurgien anglais, notamment est l’un des premiers à cultiver la plante au Royaume-Uni mais la décrit comme vénéneuse dans son herbier The Herbal or General History of Plants paru en 1597. “Une pomme empoisonnée” Les Européens qui se risquent à la goûter ne peuvent évidemment que considérer qu’elle est bien comestible. Pourtant, cette mauvaise réputation va perdurer pendant deux siècles, lui valant le surnom de “pomme empoisonnée”. Pour ne rien arranger, quelques faits divers s’ajoutent à l’avis des botanistes. En effet, à l’époque, certaines personnes faisant partie des couches aisées de la société ont été empoisonnées après avoir consommé de la tomate, alimentant encore la mauvaise réputation du fruit. En vérité, ces étranges accidents n’étaient pas à attribuer directement au fruit mais à la vaisselle dans laquelle il était mangé : des assiettes fabriquées à base d’étain et de plomb. Dans l’assiette, la tomate acide, avait tendance à absorber le plomb toxique pour la santé et causait donc effectivement des empoisonnements une fois consommée. Heureusement, les populations les plus pauvres d’Europe s’étaient déjà laissé séduire par l’aliment, mettant au point de multiples recettes l’utilisant. Des recettes qui firent du bien à la tomate  Ceci permît de diffuser peu à peu l’utilisation de la tomate jusqu’au milieu du XVIIIe siècle où elle fut finalement reconnue comme comestible. Les cultures commencèrent alors à se multiplier à travers le monde tandis que la demande augmentait. En France, les Provençaux furent les premiers à la consommer. Mais l’introduction de la tomate fût plus lente avant de connaitre une importante accélération vers 1790, grâce notamment à des restaurants proposant des recettes à base du fruit.La tomate n’était alors plus une plante ornementale mais un aliment précieux pouvant être consommé chaud comme froid. Les recettes continuèrent ensuite à se multiplier, soupe, sauce et enfin la fameuse pizza imaginée à la fin du XVIIIe siècle en Italie. Celles-ci mirent tout le monde d’accord et introduisirent définitivement la tomate comme composante essentielle et juteuse de l’alimentation européenne. Un marché très productif À lire aussiVoici pourquoi il faut éviter les aliments ultra-transformésCette plante est aujourd’hui cultivée par 170 pays à travers le monde, la Chine en tête, selon les données de la FAO. En quelques décennies, la production n’a cessé d’augmenter pour dépasser, en 2007, les 120 millions de tonnes produits sur près de 5 millions d’hectares. La même année, la France en a produit 750.000 tonnes, sans compter les productions familiales et vivrières. Le nombre de variétés de tomates cultivées a également connu au fil des décennies une remarquable hausse. Désormais, la tomate est reconnu comme un fruit (et un légume) particulièrement riche en vitamine C et en lycopène. A ce titre, on lui attribue de nombreux bienfaits nutritionnels contre le vieillissement et contre certaines maladies notamment. Le 26 juin 2013 à 09:57 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Weather Eye: Smoky air’s silver lining is lower-than-forecast temperatures

first_img The smoke and haze were so thick Monday that we barely made it to 82 degrees, far from the forecasted high in the low 90s. It was a forecast bust, but cooler is better. We are still waiting to get one more day of 90 degrees or better to break the record of 27 days in a calendar year set way back in 1906. The forecast calls for 90 degrees or higher today and Wednesday. If we fail, I do not see any high temperatures in the 90s for some time. A deep trough of low pressure swings inland on Thursday causing temperatures to drop back to the 70s with morning clouds. We could see drizzle in areas of Western Washington, best chance is at the coast. By the weekend, another low drops in and showers are possible. It is still up in the air as to where and how much. Vancouver hasn’t had measurable precipitation since July 2. The thick smoke was even at the coast, where it was socked in like fog. You could even smell smoke on the beach, and there is nowhere to escape the smoke the next couple of days in Washington and Oregon.The warmest temperature at 4 p.m. Monday was Bellingham with 86 degrees. Both Seattle and Vancouver had 81 degrees. I hate to rush the season, but I am ready for autumn with its cool, crisp air and, yes, even some rain. You feel trapped under all this smoke.Stay indoors if possible, or wear a face mask if highly sensitive to the unhealthy air. Hope for a good marine push by Thursday. We’ll chat again on that day.

GH London employees at Heathrow Airport awarded a 91 pay rise

first_imgBaggage handlers and check-in staff employed by GH London at Heathrow Airport, who are members of the trade union Unite, will receive a 9.1% pay increase to mitigate strike action.Negotiations between Unite and GH London, formally known as Azzurra, have confirmed that affected staff will receive a 6.1% pay rise backdated for 2017 and 2018 and a 3% wage increase for 2019.The pay deal was agreed after 300 Unite members employed by GH London, based at terminals two and four at Heathrow Airport, voted 99.2% in favour of strike action in April 2019; this was in response to ongoing pay freezes, according to Unite.Kevin Hall, regional officer at Unite, said: “The overwhelming vote for strike action was proof that [employees] at Heathrow had had enough of year-on-year pay freezes. There was a lot of anger, but more and more [staff] joined Unite and were able to demand an end to the pay injustice.“Once constructive talks got underway, the [employees’] representatives negotiated a 9.1% pay deal. We’re pleased that GH London is now recognising its [employees’] contribution with a significant pay increase.”Azzurra was unavailable for comment at the time of publication.last_img read more

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Good competition. Both men have been practicing very well the last couple of days,” Holcomb said. “It’s an ongoing process, it’s a constant rotation.”Benwikere played 34 snaps on defense to Taylor’s 55 Sunday in a 16-14 loss to Chicago, though many of those were in the interior as a fifth or sixth defensive back.It’s possible he could continue to earn more snaps in that role if Taylor continues seeing most of the snaps at corner.EXTRA POINT— Cardinals offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, on the mobility and arm strength that Rosen brings to the table: “You do so many drills during the day or during the week of, you’re not just sitting back there dropping, sitting in the pocket. You got to be able to move, you got to know when you can step up, when you can flush, what are the certain looks, where are the hot answers when things break down. I think as we’ve all seen in the short amount of time he’s been with us that he can throw on the run and get out of certain things and make some plays with his feet.” He remembers the early days, when the first thing he’d do upon hearing a play-call was double-check where he was supposed to line up or where a hole might open up.“I was so worried about, alright, don’t forget that. This is your move. This is what you got,” he said.“Now I hear a play, I already know what I got, I’m already looking at the defense. I’m all about the defense now. It’s slowed it down for me tremendously.”Cornerback competition on the radarNew coaching staff, new year, same microscope on the Cardinals’ cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson.Jamar Taylor, who was acquired from the Cleveland Browns in a trade this offseason, began the year as Arizona’s starter. But on Sunday, he was lifted in the fourth quarter for Wilks-taught defensive back Bene Benwikere.Benwikere played for Wilks from 2014-16 after he was the Carolina Panthers’ fifth-round pick in 2014. He’s since bounced around, playing for the Dallas Cowboys last season.Wilks said Sunday that inserting Benwikere at corner was about searching for a spark and this week reiterated the competition is open. Defensive coordinator Al Holcomb said the call is Wilks’ to make, but did say Thursday that a competition is taking place.

I was always taught in college: prepare for the worst and react to the easy.“I look at a full play that I’m trying to study and let it go — so I try not to think about it. And then I rewind it. And then I’ll try to break it down, step-by-step, what I have to do, what my job is, where my eyes and O-line are on that look.”Edmonds said he’s grown immensely in how fast he’s able to process information, even comparing earlier parts of training camp with Week 1 of the regular season. 4 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires TEMPE, Ariz. — Typical NFL quarterback he is, Josh Rosen is supposed to be the most confident. As a rookie now tasked with leading the Arizona Cardinals, he is not supposed to show weakness.“Fake it ’til you make it,” he’s said since being drafted No. 10 overall.Subtly, he broke that rule about carrying all the confidence in the world by complimenting rookie running back Chase Edmonds.“I think he’s smarter than all of us,” Rosen said Wednesday, speaking of his fellow Cardinals rookies. “He’s the one fixing a lot of protections.”last_img read more

in Chief to spend April 6 2017 in the company of the Chinese President at Mar-a-Lago So it appeared that the 100th anniversary of America’s entry into World War I would be a bigger deal in Kansas City than elsewhere This felt familiar The transformative and tragic war was the harbinger of modern America which reluctantly emerged as a world power amid the death throes of Old Europe Yet for complicated reasons it isn’t lodged in the nation’s memory The battles of Gettysburg and Normandy are retold generation by generation while the Battle of the Argonne Forest–where more than 26000 Americans gave their lives in the autumn of 1918–is gone like a nightmare that vanishes with the dawn But the overlooked war looms large over Kansas City Mo, Rising to 217 ft. the Liberty Memorial tower commands a solemn plaza flanked on one side by a Memory Hall dedicated to 441 area residents who died in the war and by a small exhibition hall on the other At the dedication of the site in 1921 the most famous Missourian in the world–General John J Pershing commander of the American Expeditionary Forces in the Great War–was joined by his brother commanders from France Great Britain Italy and

doctor Captain William T Fitzsimons Another local man Major Mark Hanna was one of the last to die It was an era of great energy in this young American boomtown The feedlots and meatpackers of the Missouri River bottoms fed the nation with steaks and bacon Prohibition was just a bad rumor in the city’s nightclubs which pulsed with jazz and sex A young ambulance driver home from France Walt Disney was surely in that crowd Not yet 20 but matured by the war he was starting a business making animated cartoons His Kansas City studio didn’t last but the mouse he befriended here was destined for immortality In short everything was up to date in the so-called Paris of the Plains The soaring memorial would be a boldly visible expression of its ambitions How could they know that the war they endured which cost more than 100000 American lives and left Europe decimated was but a wretched overture to an even more horrible one Nor could they imagine that their decorations vice chairman would build an American-led order strong enough to assure the longest reign of peace among great powers since the Roman Empire The future has an urgency that drowns out the past Over time the Liberty Memorial fell into disrepair But Kansas City never gave up on it In 1998 citizens voted to tax themselves for maintenance and six years later they passed a bond issue to build an award-winning museum and research center beneath the memorial In time Congress granted an official designation: the National World War I Museum and Memorial There are plans finally to build a memorial in the nation’s

News Two consecutive draws and a little rant by Cristiano Ronaldo have put Real Madrid on the verge of an early crisis Real Madrid got off to a good start this season but setbacks against Villarreal and Las Palmas in the Spanish league combined with Ronaldo’s angry reaction after being substituted on Saturday have created an air of turmoil The Spanish powerhouse still holds the league lead but its advantage over Barcelona was cut to one point after the recent lackluster performances Madrid also struggled against Sporting Lisbon in its Champions League opener when it needed two late goals to salvage a 2-1 win at home The biggest problem facing coach Zinedine Zidane may be Ronaldo who was visibly upset after being replaced in the 72nd minute in the 2-2 draw at Las Palmas The Portuguese forward did not look at Zidane as they quickly shook hands after the substitution Zidane was the one who moved toward Ronaldo and extended his hand Ronaldo had walked briskly toward the sideline after seeing he was being replaced by youngster Lucas Vazquez sputtering words to himself and not hiding his disappointment He continued talking apparently in Portuguese on his way to the bench where he watched the rest of the game After the match Zidane tried to downplay Ronaldo’s attitude saying he didn’t think the player was angry at being replaced The coach said he took his star forward out to rest him ahead of the team’s Champions League match at Borussia Dortmund “We’ve got a game on Tuesday and I thought that it was the right time to bring him off” Zidane said “That’s all there is to it He always wants to play and be out there on the pitch but I’ve also got to think about the player and he needed to rest and think about Tuesday” Madrid was winning 2-1 when Ronaldo was replaced and Las Palmas equalized near the end to keep Madrid winless for the second straight match “We’re relaxed” Zidane said “We are working hard and focused on what we’re doing We have to realize that you can’t always win but we’re on the right track” Ronaldo did not play well but set up the team’s second goal on Saturday scored by Karim Benzema just minutes before being taken off the field The forward has been supportive of Zidane since the former player took over the squad last season always praising his way of coaching There had never been any signs of discontent from Ronaldo before Saturday’s

tug-of-war in the Samajwadi Party is a serious assault on secular politics in Uttar Pradesh The secular vote in the state is presently in a dilemma due to the war between the Mulayam Singh and Akhilesh Yadav camps The need of the moment was that the SP should have remained a unified unit taking along like-minded parties so that a Bihar-type front against communal forces could emerge But now that seems very difficult” The editor of Roznama Khabrein Qasim Syed in a signed front page commentary on the same day writes: “In case the SP is divided there is every possibility that Muslim voters whose sole strategy is to defeat BJP would move towards BSP which claims that its victory will be ensured with 22 per cent Dalit and 20 per cent Muslim votes Even if 50 per cent of the Muslim vote goes over to the BSP the BJP’s castle in the air would fall to the ground Now even an understanding between the two warring groups of the SP will prove the opposition’s allegation that it was a fixed match (noora kushti)” The daily Sahafat in its front page lead on January 10 quotes an unnamed senior leader close to Mulayam and Shivpal Yadav saying that in case the two groups of SP contest the

occasionally Another said that such incidents are bound to take place if girls wear provocative dresses He also said that ants are bound to go where there is sugar and fire would certainly spread if brought near petrol Thus they held girls themselves responsible for the shameful treatment meted out to them He should be asked what provocative dress an 11-month-old child who was raped in Delhi a few days ago was wearing” Rashtriya Sahara on January 10 in a strange tone writes: “Incidents ranging from the mass molestation in Bengaluru to the many cases of indiscriminate killings reported daily are giving a loud message that human society and governments are not capable of stopping them They can be stopped only by sincerely following the path shown by the creator of the universe who has
