Why I’d keep investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA after the FTSE 100’s market crash

Enter Your Email Address Why I’d keep investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA after the FTSE 100’s market crash The recent fall in the FTSE 100 may cause some investors to question whether they should go ahead with their Stocks and Shares ISA investments. They may be of the view that things could get worse for the stock market in the near term, and a cautious attitude is the best approach.Of course, further losses could be ahead and investing today may lead to paper losses for investors. However, the recovery potential of the FTSE 100, its low valuation and the long-term growth prospects for the world economy mean that now could be a logical time to invest in a diverse range of companies.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Low valuationsInvestors who are seeking to buy stocks when they are low may find that the FTSE 100 has greater appeal now than it did prior to its recent decline. The index itself has a dividend yield of around 5%, which is among its highest-ever levels and suggests that it offers a wide margin of safety.Clearly, there is scope for valuations to move even lower in the near term. However, for valuations to stand at attractive levels there usually must be an unclear outlook. For example, during the global financial crisis there were fears that the world economy would experience a prolonged depression. Similarly, other crises such as the 1987 crash and the tech bubble included periods when it seemed that the world economy would take many, many years to recover.However, the FTSE 100 and the world economy subsequently recovered from those challenging periods to post strong growth. Investors who bought when the outlook seemed at its most challenging are likely to have benefited from their actions. This could mean that low valuations today are a reason to buy and hold for the long term.Growth opportunitiesWhile the near-term growth prospects for the world economy are very challenging, over the long run, the prospects for major economies such as the US, China and India continue to be upbeat. They have strong fundamentals, while recent interest rate cuts in the US and other nations could lead to greater support for the macroeconomic outlook.Therefore, buying high-quality stocks with strong balance sheets, solid cash flow and that have exposure to fast-growing markets could lead to impressive returns in the long run. Their growth rates may be weaker over the coming quarters than those that were expected by investors earlier in the year prior to the spread of coronavirus, but their valuations appear to adequately factor this in across many of the FTSE 100’s members.Buying those companies today in a Stocks and Shares ISA may not produce high returns in the short run. But it could lead to an impressive total return in the coming years that improves your financial outlook.

Photo: Art Babych[Anglican Journal] Bishop Lydia Mamakwa wiped away tears of joy, while Archbishop David Ashdown and Archbishop Fred Hiltz swayed as a hymn was sung, minutes after General Synod on July 6 gave its unanimous concurrence to the creation of an indigenous diocese in northern Ontario.“This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad,” a beaming Hiltz said as members gave a standing ovation and extended applause when the resolution passed. Approval of Resolution B001 means that the diocese of Keewatin will cease to operate on Dec. 31, 2014, but will continue as a legal entity until Sept. 30, 2015, at which time Ashdown will end his term as diocesan bishop and metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province of Rupert’s Land. Other remaining parts of Keewatin will be “redeployed” to other dioceses. The diocese of Rupert’s Land has agreed to absorb Keewatin’s southern region churches.This means “there will be no increase in the number of dioceses,” states the resolution.Prior to the vote, several representatives of the diocese offered reflections about the resolution.“This is a historic moment,” said the Rev. Amos Winter, from Kingfisher Lake, Ont. “God is surely in control and he has guided this moment…We are being called to go where no church has gone before…Let us unite as the people of God.”The new northern Ontario diocese—whose name will be determined by aboriginal elders and other church and community members in September—will cover 16 First Nations communities belonging to Treaty 9 around Kingfisher Lake, north of Sioux Lookout. Mamakwa, who was elected in 2010, is the current area bishop.After the resolution passed, Mamakwa embraced Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, and presented him with a pair of moccasins as a gift. The primate promised to wear them as a sign of the church’s commitment “to walk together” with indigenous Anglicans. He paid tribute to Mamakwa’s leadership, describing it as “so inspiring and effective.” He noted her capacity to engage with both elders and youth.Hiltz also paid tribute to Ashdown, calling him “a courageous leader…[who] worked so hard for this day to come.”In an interview, Ashdown noted that the resolution also passed unanimously at the diocesan and provincial levels. “That says it’s very much the will of God. The spirit is moving, and the church recognizes the work of the Spirit,” he said.“We were a bit anxious a while ago about coming to General Synod for concurrence because we thought there was perhaps a lack of understanding about what we’re trying to do,” said Ashdown. Some members had initial concerns that “we might be creating a structure on top of another structure” and whether the diocese can in fact be self-sustaining and self-determining, he added. Keewatin has shown that “we’re not creating new structures,” he said. “We’re not dealing with something that’s brand new. It’s another step in a journey already begun. It’s working to a point where our mission is shaping our structures, not our mission being constrained by structure.”National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald, for his part, said the creation of an indigenous diocese “is the beginning of something glorious and wonderful.”Bishop Don Phillips, bishop of the diocese of Rupert’s Land, said, “I assure you that we are excited and proud to play a supportive role in this new life of our church.”The transfer of the southern region of Keewatin to the diocese of Rupert’s Land is “not an annexation,” he said. “God is doing something new…We are excited about what God has in store for us now and in the future.”Diocese of Saskatchewan Bishop Michael Hawkins, who chairs the Council of the North, said self-determination is not a political but a “theological concept.” He described the creation of the indigenous diocese as “a Pentecost moment.”last_img read more

House of Bishops Theology Committee examining ‘infection’ of white supremacy

first_img Submit an Event Listing Course Director Jerusalem, Israel This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Shreveport, LA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Jun 21, 2019 [Episcopal News Service] A committee of bishops and academic theologians is discussing how The Episcopal Church and its bishops can confront what its chair has called “the comprehensive role of white supremacy in our lives.”The House of Bishops Theology Committee wants to give The Episcopal Church some theological resources to help it respond to Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s invitation to become Beloved Community.The Beloved Community initiative is rooted in the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s call for racial equality, economic justice and world peace.However, “it sort of hit us like a ton of bricks that there was no way we could really move forward with integrity on a theological exploration of the very concepts of Beloved Community unless we acknowledged the reality and challenge of the ideology of white supremacy,” Diocese of Southern Ohio Bishop Thomas Breidenthal, who chairs the committee, told Episcopal News Service.In a letter to the House of Bishops earlier this year, Breidenthal said that the committee realizes that the church’s effort must begin by recognizing the role of white supremacy in “infecting all our perceptions, passions and patterns of thought.”The committee is working on “a fuller theological and historical account of white supremacy and its impact on The Episcopal Church,” according to his letter.However, Breidenthal acknowledged to ENS, that “this might be a very difficult conversation to have in the house and certainly in the church as a whole.” The committee wants to provide ways to “model honest and truthful conversations,” he said.Diocese of New York Bishop Suffragan Allen Shin told the House of Bishops in March that the committee “would like your guidance on the best way to invite this house and the wider church into reflection and dialogue on this issue.” He said the group hopes to have time at its next meeting to begin those conversations, centering first on three groups of questions that Breidenthal posed in his letter:How do you understand white supremacy? How have you experienced it?How has white supremacy influenced your view of God? The church?What does your vision of Beloved Community that repents of white supremacy look like? What will you do to work toward that vision?Breidenthal said in his letter that the committee is identifying historical documents relating to marginalized populations, including African American, Latino, Asian, indigenous and LGBTQ communities.To that end, Mark Duffy, the church’s canonical archivist and director of The Episcopal Church Archives told ENS that the committee has asked the Archives for help. The committee, he said, admired the Archives’ digital exhibit on African Americans in The Episcopal Church and wondered about developing a similar effort to tell the stories of the church’s Asian Americans.“For me, it says there’s been a lot of talk about reconciliation, there’s been a lot of talk about ‘beloved community,’ but are we doing the hard work here?” Duffy said. “Are we really looking at what we’ve done?”Duffy said his “historian side wants to see us do something that can be passed on, that can be brought to the next generation.”The committee is working in two other directions, as well. “More broadly, we are interested in noting the stories that The Episcopal Church has forgotten or never told about its minority members,” Breidenthal wrote in his letter. The committee also is looking at how human beings “generate narratives and repeat and alter them endlessly.” The members also are investigating “resources in Scripture and practices embedded in the history of the church that might help us embody faithful habits of listening to God and each other.”Racism and its impact on society and the church have drawn the bishops’ attention for more than 25 years. The house has issued two letters to the church on this topic, one adopted by the house in April 1994 and another one issued March 22, 2006.The House of Bishops Theology Committee, whose members are appointed by the presiding bishop, undertakes projects of theological inquiry as requested by him or her and the house. General Convention makes occasional requests of the committee. In the past, the committee has developed resources for the wider church and the bishops’ teaching ministry on such subjects as human sexuality, the environment and just war theory. In the 2013-15 triennium, the committee worked on a theology of discipleship and mission in the global economy that resulted in a digital interactive resource during Lent 2016.– The Rev.

Latin america

first_imgLatin americaOn 1 May 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article When multinationals entered the Latin American region a decade ago, the biggest challenge was to find capable staff. Today the problem of how to attract, motivate and retain high-impact performers is beginning to surface.In Latin America, as in the US, Canada and Europe, total remuneration packages start with base salary but also typically include long and short-term incentive pay and benefits. In countries with a strong flow of foreign investments such as Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Chile, a fair salary has to be topped up by a package of other rewards, incentives and working conditions.Surprisingly, one of the key motivators is cars, followed by bonuses. To attract top-level talent in Brazil for example, companies need to provide executives and managers with a luxury car, as well as a defined benefit retirement plan.But expectations and cultural values regarding total remuneration packages can differ significantly from country to country in the Latin region. “In Argentina where the economic situation is very unstable,” says Luis Perez Van Morlegan from Argentinean-based HR consultancy Bertoni & Asociados/H Neumann International, “many good executives are looking for work but obviously the top performers are employed and not always willing to leave unless another company offers them a substantial hiring bonus. One of the best methods of attraction is a bonus because it is linked to the performance of the employee within the company. It represents a percentage of the annual remuneration which is the equivalent to two to five times the wages.”Long-term incentives such as stock option programmes were implemented in a growing number of companies in the region, especially in the fast expanding hi-tech and telecommunication sectors. “In Mexico,” explains Hugo Oliveri, a consultant based at the Mexican offices of professional services firm Watson Wyatt, “stock options are becoming a very strong tool to retain highly skilled performers. They represent 25% of the basic salary. Bonuses are given in 80% of companies, which represents 20% of the basic salary.”A survey carried out by Watson Wyatt in Puerto Rico indicates that despite the high unemployment rate of approximately 11 per cent, base salary increases range from 4.5 per cent to 4.8 per cent each year. And yet, over 50 per cent of those companies surveyed are experiencing difficulties in attracting and retaining critical skills and talent.“To tackle this problem,” explains US-based HR consultant Douglas H. Hachenburg, “companies have to incorporate pay-for-performance with large opportunities for high performers. A strong recruitment strategy is also important to select the most qualified individual. Finally, improving employee communication in areas such as benefits is also crucial. Bonuses are paid at all levels, with more senior positions eligible for substantial payments, although not as high as in the US. Cars are one of the most attractive and frequent management perquisites in the country.”For many companies in the region, variable pay continues to play an important role in linking rewards to performance. Programmes that have increased in utilisation since 1998 are: individual performance incentives, team/small group incentives, spot recognition awards and retention bonuses.But there are also three non-financial incentives that have a strong impact in attracting highly skilled workers in the region – job stability, training and promotion.However, as work-life balance issues are important in Latin America, benefits that recognise family commitments go down well with employees too. Anna Maria Gonzalez, for example, HR manager of fmcg company Sara Lee in the Dominican Republic, says management at Sara Lee in the Latin region has focused on its employees’ number one priority – their families.“Dominican companies are following US examples by including family members in fringe benefits, such as life and health insurance, club memberships and so on. But we are also going the extra mile to look after employees by recognising home commitments. Help is given through organising summer camps, Christmas parties and picnics for staff and family members. At Christmas we also give out food baskets for the family,” says Gonzalez. “And this is a great way to hold on to staff.”Many companies in the region also provide free lunches and vitamins for employees, especially in areas where malnutrition is a problem.

US Navy receives patent for seawater to fuel conversion

first_img US Navy works on enabling ships to produce fuel from seawater. Obtains first patent Authorities June 9, 2016 View post tag: US Navy The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has been granted the first U.S. patent for a method to simultaneously extract carbon dioxide and hydrogen from seawater.According to the U.S. Navy agency, this single process provides all the raw materials necessary for the production of synthetic liquid hydrocarbon fuels.Researchers from the U.S. Naval Reserve, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and NRL are among the co-contributors and inventors in the patent issued April 5, 2016, by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USTPO).The Electrolytic Cation Exchange Module (E-CEM), developed at NRL, provides the Navy the capability to produce fuel stock (LNG, CNG, F-76, JP-5, etc.) at sea, or in remote locations.According to NRL, the E-CEM has successfully demonstrated proof-of-concept for a simultaneous recovery process of carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen (H2) from seawater. The carbon dioxide and hydrogen gas recovered from the seawater as feedstock are catalytically converted to hydrocarbons in a second additional synthetic process step.“A ship’s ability to produce a significant fraction of the battle group’s fuel for operations at sea could reduce the mean time between refueling, and increase the operational flexibility and time on station,” said Cmdr. Felice DiMascio.“Reducing the logistics tail on fuel delivery with the potential to increase the Navy’s energy security and independence, with minimal impact on the environment, were key factors in the development of this program.”Dr. Heather Willauer, research chemist at NRL said: “Building on the success of the first exchange module, we have scaled-up the carbon capture process to improve efficiency and substantially increase feedstock production.” “Using a scaled-up, second generation E-CEM prototype, we will substantially increase CO2 and H2 production capable of producing up to one gallon of fuel per day, an increase nearly 40 times greater than with the earlier generation E-CEM.”To accommodate increased feedstock production, NRL is also scaling up the catalyst system to synthesize fuel from CO2 and H2. Having fully realized the product distribution of hydrocarbons using a small plug flow chemical reactor, NRL has recently partnered with a commercial entity to test the catalyst using their large-scale chemical reactor.“Basically we are optimizing both processes separately, CO2 and hydrogen production and recovery, and synthesis of hydrocarbons from CO2 and hydrogen,” Willauer said. “Since we will be producing enough feedstock in the near future, we envision integrating the two processes at our Key West facility to further evaluate how full-scale end-to-end production might evolve.”At these scales, Willauer contends there will remain several issues to resolve, however, the team hopes to have the two processes operating at Key West by late 2016.The Electrolytic Cation Exchange Module (E-CEM), developed at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), provides the Navy the capability to produce the raw materials necessary to develop synthetic fuel stock for production of LNG, CNG, F-76, and JP-5, at sea, or in remote locations. The size and scale of the E-CEM is the next step towards integrating and commercializing these systems.

News story: New protection against identity fraud for company directors

first_imgCompany directors are twice as likely to be victims of identity fraud, research shows New laws will allow directors to remove their personal address from the company register whilst still ensuring transparency at Companies House Protection will help to ensure the UK continues to be one of the best places in the world to start a business – a key part of our Industrial Strategy Under the new laws, directors can replace their personal addresses with an alternative one, like a company address, where they can be contacted to ensure companies meet their legal requirements.Currently, personal addresses can only be removed when Companies House and the relevant authorities judge there is a serious risk of violence or intimidation as a result of the company’s work.The new laws will also ensure transparency in legal information as public authorities such as the police, the insolvency service and the pension regulator will still be able to access directors’ information, such as their personal address.The laws will come into force by the end of summer 2018. New laws to help protect company directors from identity fraud and personal harm will be introduced by the Government today (22 February).The new laws will enable company directors to remove their personal addresses from the UK’s official company register on Companies House. Directors must still provide their business address as a legal requirement.This comes in response to reports that fraudsters are using this publicly available information to pose as company directors to buy products online. There are also concerns the information is leaving company directors vulnerable to violence and intimidation.They are twice as likely to be the victims of identity fraud, with company directors being victims in one in five recorded cases, according to research by fraud prevention organisation Cifas.These new regulations will also help to ensure people feel safe when setting up a new business by protecting directors from identity fraud.Business Minister Andrew Griffiths said:center_img Through our Industrial Strategy we have set our blueprint for ensuring we build on our reputation as one of the best places in the world to start and grow a business. These new laws will protect new and existing business owners from potential harm and identity fraud, while ensuring we maintain our high standards of corporate transparency.last_img read more

Intersnack buys KP Snacks business

first_imgUnited Biscuits has sold its KP Snacks business to Intersnack in a deal believed to be worth between £400m and £500m.In a joint announcement this morning (5 December), the biscuit manufacturer said the two companies had signed an agreement for the County Durham-based firm to acquire the snacks business for an undisclosed sum.The transaction is expected to be complete during the first quarter of 2013.The move means Intersnack will acquire such brands as McCoy’s, Hula Hoops, KP Nuts and Skips, as well as Phileas Fogg, Space Raiders, Nik Naks and Wheat Crunchies. In addition, the transaction includes KP’s UK manufacturing facility and a head office, among other assets.UB will retain ownership of its baked bagged snack brands manufactured in its biscuit factories, including Mini Cheddars and Twiglets.David Fish, group non-executive chairman at UB, said: “KP Snacks is an excellent fit into Intersnack’s existing operations. This exciting deal ensures the KP brands continue as part of a major European snacks business, which gives them the scale and support needed in a competitive marketplace. It also allows UB to concentrate its attention solely on continuing to develop and grow its baked biscuit and snack product range.”Maarten Leerdam, executive chairman, Intersnack, said: “We are very pleased to be teaming up with KP Snacks, which represents a strong and highly complementary fit with the Intersnack family of leading businesses throughout Europe. Intersnack is a strong believer in the power of iconic, local hero brands, and we aim to leverage these strengths for further expansion. As a privately-owned company, we operate our business with a long-term view. As such, the joint know-how of KP Snacks and Intersnack will drive the development of these iconic brands.”KP Snacks reported an annual turnover of £280m, as well as consistent top- and bottom-line growth over the last five years, and employs approximately 1,500 members of staff. British Baker reported on UB’s decision to separate the snacks business back in August, after the company steadily denied related rumours. Nick Bunker, formerly president of Kraft Foods UK/Ireland, was appointed as chief executive of KP Snacks in the same month.Intersnack is a European manufacturer of savoury snacks, producing such brands as Pom-Bear crisps.last_img read more

Talent on the sidelines

first_imgEvery year on May 1, high-achieving high school seniors around the country face the final deadline for college commitment. For many middle- and upper-middle-class students, the date marks the end of standardized-test taking, application essay writing, campus visits, and financial aid planning — the complex process otherwise known as the college admissions game.This spring, the conversation about the ever-more-fraught competition for a spot in one of America’s top universities has shifted to an often-overlooked group, thanks to research by Christopher Avery, Roy E. Larsen Professor of Public Policy and Management at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS). If admission to elite colleges is a game, Avery and his longtime colleague Caroline Hoxby found, it’s one that low-income students with high potential are too often sitting out.In a National Bureau of Economic Research paper presented in March, Avery and Hoxby, an economist at Stanford University, reported that promising but poor high school students (those who scored in the top 10 percent among SAT takers and whose families make $41,472 a year or less) often do not apply to any selective universities — despite the fact that those colleges, on average, would be more affordable than less-selective schools thanks to their robust financial aid policies.“These low-income students’ application behavior differs greatly from that of their high-income counterparts who have similar achievement,” they wrote. “The latter group generally follows the advice to apply to a few ‘par’ colleges, a few ‘reach’ colleges, and a couple of ‘safety’ schools.”In short, Avery and Hoxby wrote, low-income high performers “exhibit behavior that is typical of students of their income rather than typical of students of their achievement.”The paper spurred a wave of media coverage, much of it critical of the selective colleges Avery and Hoxby studied. If poor students weren’t applying to good schools, the logic went, then it must be the fault of those colleges for not trying hard enough to attract them. In some corners, their work was taken as a sign that the country’s higher education system was broken, or as evidence that growing wealth inequality was stifling opportunity for young people at the bottom of the economic ladder.“I can see why some people take the paper that way, but I don’t see it that way,” Avery said. “We know the colleges are trying really hard to attract these students, but they’re facing a problem that is systematically very challenging. This problem is too large for a handful of selective colleges to solve on their own.”High-achieving, low-income students often live far from major urban centers and from areas with high concentrations of colleges, such as the East Coast, he said. Colleges can still reach students through mailings, “but these students are getting piles and piles of brochures,” Avery said. “They may have heard of Harvard, but there are lots of other great colleges that they haven’t heard of, and they can’t distinguish within this pile where to apply.”Compounding the issue, he said, is the fact that many of these students are the first in their families who plan to go to college. Without any insider knowledge of selective colleges from friends or family members, low-income, geographically isolated students often don’t know what their options are, Avery said — a theme that has appeared in his research on college admission over the past two decades.Avery, who attended Harvard College and received his doctorate at Stanford, hadn’t intended to study higher education when he joined the HKS faculty in 1993.“I was trained in game theory, which is about strategic interactions and incentives,” he said. “I realized the college admissions system had evolved into a situation where there was a lot of strategy involved.”At HKS, Avery began working with a mid-career student, Andrew Fairbanks, whose interest in the economics of college admissions had been sparked by his time as an admissions officer at Wesleyan University. In 2003, with co-author Richard Zeckhauser, HKS’s Frank P. Ramsey Professor of Political Economy, Avery and Fairbanks published “The Early Admissions Game,” the first academic book to fully explore the growing practice of early admission.After studying half a million applications to 14 elite colleges, the authors found, somewhat controversially, that applying early gave students a documentable advantage over peers who applied by “regular decision” deadlines.“We were estimating that at a lot of the colleges we studied, applying early was the same as increasing your SAT score by 100 points,” Avery said. More important, he added, “was that experienced college counselors at private schools already knew this. In a sense, it wasn’t a level playing field.”Since the book’s publication in 2004, many colleges have stepped up their efforts to recruit students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds by raising awareness of their early decision and financial aid programs. Harvard, with its Financial Aid Initiative, was at the forefront of the movement, Avery said.Still, colleges and students alike have opportunities to boost the numbers, he said. Selective colleges that lack broad name recognition can tap alumni to reach out to high school students in isolated towns where admissions officers can’t afford to travel. Low-income students can request application fee waivers, allowing them to apply to several more colleges than they otherwise would and to then compare their financial aid packages.“It’s like looking at a couple of houses,” Avery said. “You may need more than one option.”Working with the Strategic Data Project at Harvard’s Center for Education Policy Research, Avery advises fellows who analyze data for some of the nation’s largest public school districts. Through the project, he has become more involved in tracking students of all achievement levels as they move from high school into college — or not.“I now see that there are a lot of students who could go to good colleges but who don’t go to college at all,” he said. One of the Strategic Data Project’s goals, he said, is to help school districts track former students to see how many actually pursue higher education — instead of relying on self-reported plans — and to develop interventions to help graduating students follow through on their college goals.Collaborating with researchers from across Harvard, from the Graduate School of Education (GSE) to the Economics Department, has broadened his work over the years, he said.“There’s a growing community here of people who are really dedicated to these problems,” he said. “We’re trying to figure out what we as researchers can do to lower the barriers that have been keeping talented people from making it to college and graduating from college.”last_img read more

4 backcountry skiers killed in Colorado avalanches in 4 days

first_imgThe bodies of three backcountry skiers buried in a large avalanche in southwestern Colorado were found Wednesday, and a slide near Vail Mountain Resort on Thursday killed another skier. Officials say the skiers in the first slide between the towns of Silverton and Ophir were located under more than 20 feet of debris. The bodies were left where they were found for now because bad weather prevented the helicopter from transporting them. The slide happened Monday. The skier killed in Thursday’s avalanche exited the resort through a backcountry access gate. Eight backcountry skiers have died in avalanches in Colorado this winter.last_img read more

Happy Birthday, Grease! 37 Fun Facts About Rydell High

first_imgSandy, Danny and the Rydell High gang are turning 37 today! The smash-hit movie Grease was released June 16, 1978, starring John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing and Jeff Conaway as the coolest high schoolers in history. Filmed on a shoestring budget, the movie adapted from the hit Broadway musical by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey went on to become the highest-grossing movie musical ever. Isn’t it the most, to say the least? Check out these 37 automatic, systematic, hydromatic facts all about our pals at Rydell High.1. The 1978 film was based on the 1972 Broadway musical of the same name, which originally ran for 3,388 performances and has since been revived twice.2. Several changes were made for the big-screen adaptation—the “Burger Palace Boys,” as the greasers were called in the Broadway show, were changed to the much catchier “T-Birds” in the movie.3. Originally, producers had the idea to make Grease an animated movie—they settled on a live-action film with animated opening credits instead.4. Four Grease film stars also appeared in the Broadway production: John Travolta (Doody on Broadway and Danny in the movie), Jeff Conaway (Danny on Broadway and Kenickie in the movie), Barry Pearl (Sonny on Broadway and Doody in the movie) and Jamie Donnelly (Jan on Broadway and in the movie).5. The majority of the cast hadn’t seen the inside of a high school in quite a while: John Travolta was 23 at the time of filming, Olivia Newton-John was 28 and Stockard Channing was 33.6. Frankie Valli sang the film’s title song “Grease,” which plays during the opening credits.7. Henry Winkler was considered for the part of Danny but he turned it down because he didn’t want to be typecast after starring on Happy Days.8. Susan Dey (The Partridge Family) and Deborah Raffin (7th Heaven) were both considered for the role of Sandy.9. John Travolta was initially star struck by singer Olivia Newton-John—he went to her house to convince her to co-star in the movie and was very impressed that she had a pool.10. To capitalize on Olivia Newton-John’s popularity, the film’s creators opted to keep her Australian accent and change Sandy’s last name from Dumbrowski to Olsen.11. Elvis was originally offered the role of Teen Angel, but he turned it down. It was played by Frankie Avalon in the movie.12. Another Elvis connection: In the play, “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee” had a reference to Sal Mineo, but he was murdered in 1976, so the reference was changed to Elvis for the film. Elvis died on August 16, 1977, the same day the scene was filmed.13. Dinah Manoff, who played Marty, couldn’t dance, so she was conveniently missing from most of the dance scenes.14. Lucie Arnaz was the studio’s original choice for Rizzo, but her mother Lucille Ball refused to let her do a screen test.15. Gerald Ford’s son Steven was initially cast as Sandy’s jock boyfriend Tom, but even though the part had no lines, he decided he was too nervous. The role went to Lorenzo Lamas instead.16. During the movie’s shoot, the cast reportedly chewed 100,000 pieces of bubble gum.17. “You’re the One that I Want” was filmed at a traveling carnival that was only in town for the day. Portions of the carnival had to be re-created later for close-up shots.18. The hickeys on Rizzo’s neck in the diner scene were authentic, given to Stockard Channing by Jeff Conaway, who played Kenickie. Talk about method acting!19. The song “Greased Lighting” was originally supposed to be sung by Jeff Conaway, but John Travolta convinced producers to let him sing it instead.20. In Mexico and Venezuela, Grease was released under the name Vaselina.21. John Travolta was disappointed when the last shot of the song “Sandy” ended with a cartoon hot dog jumping into a bun. “He wanted a close-up [on him],” director Robert Kleiser told The New York Post. “But that hot dog was fantastic. I didn’t want to shoot the close-up because I loved the hot dog. That was a battle, but I won.”22. The movie soundtrack had two number-one singles: “Grease” and “You’re the One That I Want.”23. Although he was taller than John Travolta, Jeff Conaway slouched when he was filmed with the star so he would appear taller.24. Most of the dancers had character names like Sauce, Trix, Cee Cee, Woppo and Bubba, even though they were never used in the movie.25. It was 116 degrees during the filming of the Rydell prom scene, which took two weeks to film in downtown Los Angeles. Several extras were treated for heat-related illnesses.26. In the final carnival scene, Eddie Deezen, who played Eugene, was filmed on a spinning ride. Afterwards, he got sick and threw up in the middle of the carnival lot.27.

Cocaine Paste Abuse Threatens Families Throughout Southern Cone

first_img MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay — Authorities in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Chile are fighting to contain the growing abuse of cocaine paste — a cheap, yellowish cocaine smoked by thousands of people throughout South America’s Southern Cone. In all four countries, the abuse of cocaine paste, also known in Argentina as paco, is far lower than that of marijuana or cocaine. Only 0.8 percent of Uruguay’s 3.4 million inhabitants use cocaine paste, according to the National Home Survey on Drug Use; that compares to 4 percent for cocaine and 12.2 percent for marijuana. Cocaine paste is often linked with criminals and those living on the fringes of society, authorities say. In fact, the proportion of cocaine paste users rises to 8 percent in the poorest neighborhoods of Montevideo, according to that same survey. Milton Romani, a Montevideo psychologist and substance-abuse expert who in April finished a six-year term as secretary of the Uruguayan National Drug Board, suggests that the abuse of cocaine paste is “a sign of the times” that first appeared in Argentina with that country’s 2001 peso devaluation, then spread rapidly across the Río de la Plata to Uruguay. “The financial crisis gave birth to a new market for drug traffickers. Cocaine base is a low-cost product that could penetrate a particular market segment, because drug trafficking follows market rules,” said Romani, an international human rights adviser. “Traffickers have to change with the times. Since they can no longer acquire large quantities of precursor chemicals, they must look at the way they make cocaine: the large laboratories in Bolivia are broken up into several drug kitchens throughout Bolivia and Argentina.” In fact, the strong dollar caused the cost of powder cocaine to skyrocket throughout the region, as did the 1998 decision to ban precursor chemicals, which by 2000 was having an impact. Both made cocaine paste a cheaper and more readily available alternative, authorities say. Between 2001 and 2005, according to a study by the Amsterdam-based Transnational Institute, the use of paco in Argentina jumped by 200 percent, with more than 150,000 youths taking it regularly. Even so, its users represent only 0.5 percent of Argentina’s population, said Mariano Donzelli of the Secretaria de Programacion de la Drogaddicion y la Lucha contra el Narcotrafico (Sedronar). That compares to cocaine, which is used by 2.6 percent of Argentines, and marijuana, which is smoked by 6.9 percent of the country’s inhabitants. In Chile, cocaine paste is abused by 0.4 percent of the population, compared to 0.7 percent for cocaine and 4.6 percent for marijuana, according to CONACE (Consejo Nacional para el Control de Estupefacientes de Chile). Its principal consumers are men aged 18 to 34 and from low-income groups. Cocaine paste is obtained from an intermediate phase in the transformation from coca leaf to cocaine hydrochloride. “When precursor chemicals were blocked in producer countries, those countries began to find it difficult to manufacture their final product, so they began to cut [the cocaine] with just about anything,” said Uruguayan judge Jorge Díaz, who specializes in organized crime. “Instead of exporting already purified cocaine from Colombia, they now export the cocaine paste — since production levels continue to be high — and they finish it later.” Romani said each kitchen is a small cog in the network that exports cocaine hydrochloride, which continues to generate the most business for drug traffickers, since that cocaine is shipped to Europe or the United States. Several variants of cocaine paste exist throughout the region, each with its own brand and distinct ingredients. It’s a very cheap product; a quick high costs less than $3.00. Users smoke it in a homemade pipe, and a single dose weighs less than a gram. The drug takes five to eight seconds to reach the brain, but the high generally doesn’t last for more than 10 minutes. Even so, it has devastating short-term effects including anorexia, antisocial and violent behavior, psychoses and hallucinations, according to a 2010 report by Uruguay’s Clemente Estable Biological Research Institute. “The first time a person uses cocaine paste, the pleasure is very fleeting,” Romani said. “Users then consume more of the drug to calm their anxiety and ill feelings.” Authorities say those living in poor neighborhoods eke out a living trafficking in cocaine paste, often as part of small, family-run networks. “This occurs in vulnerable sections of society because the factors that lead to all micro-trafficking are occurring there,” Romani said. “These are sustenance level networks that arose in the midst of the crisis.” The same pattern is found in Brazil, and it’s beginning to take root in Bolivia as well. Criminal organizations with specific characteristics are necessary to coordinate the importation, transportation, exportation and sale of cocaine. The effort requires a large initial investment. For example, in Uruguay one kilogram of cocaine powder costs $7,000 to $7,500, according to local officials; cocaine paste, by comparison, costs $2,000 per kilo. Díaz said shipments never exceed 30 kilos, and that shipments of 25 to 30 kilos are attempted only by very sophisticated trafficking networks. Smaller deliveries, which constitute the vast majority of shipments, usually employ “mules” or human couriers. “They find jobless youths, often drug addicts, and they pay them 10,000 pesos [about $550] per trip. The courier goes to Argentina, usually to Buenos Aires,” he said. “They even go and return by bus, bringing 10 or 15 kilos.” By Dialogo July 22, 2011 The paste is delivered to a certain area of Montevideo and from there it’s distributed to various neighborhoods that same night, since the points of sale receive their supplies on a daily basis. The mules make two or three trips a week, saving up money and getting to know their dealer. After awhile, they begin to buy some of the drugs for themselves. They transport 10 kilos for the dealer who hired them, and generally keep one kilo for their own use. Over the past few years, said Díaz, the trafficking business has spread like wildfire, and this has made it difficult to eradicate. “It’s very difficult to fight these dealers, because the dealers transport small amounts that they divide up quickly. Second, there are many small groups involved in trafficking. A sort of cottage industry has sprung up in the poorest areas: the families live off of this.” Even after a raid, he said, a family will keep selling drugs, “because if you prosecute the husband, the wife will take over; if you prosecute the wife, her mother will take over.” Added to this is the danger that small-time neighborhood trafficking rings might save up enough money in order to later export and traffic cocaine. However, few mechanisms or structures currently exist to encourage regional cooperation in battling cocaine paste. “We enforce laws on precursors, we prevent cocaine from being exported [to Europe or the United States], we have to combat coca cultivation, and we get stuck with this junk too?” Romani said. Recently, the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission — a unit of the Washington-based Organization of American States — has embarked on an initiative, spearheaded by Brazil with U.S. support, to deal with the spread of cocaine paste. The joint platform involving Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay consists of a first stage for technical and scientific cooperation to determine which substances will be targeted; a second phase for coordination of specific police and interdiction operations, and a third stage for medical treatment. Yet drug abuse alone doesn’t necessarily lead to a rise in violent crime, said Mario Layera, director-general of the Uruguayan Drug Trafficking Enforcement Bureau. “What I have seen in my area is that when drug abusers don’t have money, they will try by any means necessary to get their fix. First they sell everything they have, and later they start to steal other’s property to get money,” Layera said. “But I think those actions are better classified as simple theft and not as violent crime. To put it simply, using drugs isn’t what makes me a thug or mugger. Rather, it is other factors related to my actions or my personality that lead me down that road. I think violence is caused by many factors, and we should study all of them.” Alcohol and drugs accounted for 36 percent of crimes committed by Uruguayan prison inmates, according to a recent study by the Uruguayan National Drug Board. Half of those were alcohol-related; the other half were related to cocaine paste. This means that only 18 percent of the prisoners surveyed attributed their crimes to cocaine paste. Unfortunately with cocaine paste, the first target of the violence it creates is the user’s own family. Someone who abuses cocaine paste “begins stealing from his immediate family,” Romani said. It is very important to understand certain issues, mainly drugs, especially coca, where they really originate, where they go and what routes criminals use to get them to the desired location. It is very important that southern cone countries never stop combating this social ill! It is difficult for one country to fight it alone. Cooperation between all South American countries is necessary. Without this, there won’t be any results!last_img read more

Jan De Nul in Benin: Season’s Goal Completed

first_imgImage source: Jan De NulJan De Nul has just released the latest update on their underwater breakwater project in Benin, saying that the season’s goal was successfully completed.“Our vessel Pompei installed a total of 440,000 tonnes of rock in 132 days. Now getting ready for another 400,000 tonnes,” said Jan De Nul in its announcement.The stone installation works were kicked off in December 2018 in Avlékété.During the first phase, a submerged dike of 2 kilometers will be installed. Another two rock installation campaigns of 2 kilometers each will follow, one in Avlékété and another in Djégbadji.After the installation of the submerged dikes, Jan De Nul’s trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHDs) will reclaim sand to restore the affected beaches.Works will be completed in 2021.BackgroundThe Beninese Ministry of Living Environment and Sustainable Development recently kicked off the coastal protection works near the mentioned coastal villages – part of the town called Ouidah.At the beginning of 2018, the Ministry awarded Jan De Nul Group for its in-house developed design of a submerged dike installed off the coast to protect the coastline against the impact of the Atlantic Ocean.Jan De Nul’s design includes a submerged dike at about 150 meters off the coast. The dike has a wave damping effect, which means that the waves of the Atlantic Ocean are broken before they reach the coast.A wave-free climate develops between the submerged dike and the coast. This will significantly reduce the impact on the beaches, as a result of which the sand will move less and the erosion will decrease.last_img read more

Men’s soccer faces stiff test in Creighton

first_imgBlake Succa and the Badgers will be hard pressed to get a win against a Creighton team that has won four consecutive games against Wisconsin.[/media-credit]After only two games at home, the Wisconsin men’s soccer team gets back on the road this weekend to take on No. 16 Creighton.Sporting a 1-4-1 record, the Badgers are still looking for another win, as their only victory came in the first game of the season. Hitting the road to face the Bluejays Friday, though, will be a tough challenge.Creighton is 5-1-0 on the season, returning six starters from last season. The Bluejays also have a new head coach this year in Jamie Clark, who previously coached at Harvard where he brought the team to the NCAA tournament two years in a row.“For a team like that – I played some guys this summer – they’re fast, they’re strong,” sophomore defenseman Kyle McCrudden said. “It’s hard to prepare for a team like that – high intensity practices. Hopefully we’ll come out this weekend and just play well.”The last time Wisconsin and Creighton matched up was in 2006, when the Badgers fell 1-0 at home. Overall, Wisconsin is 2-6-1 against Creighton. In their last four meetings, the Bluejays have bested the Badgers, something UW hopes to change this year.“We started off on the road for the first four games, we’ve been traveling a lot and then we had a home stretch here this last week,” freshman defender Blake Succa said. “We’ve had a few days off. We know they’re going to be a big challenge for us so we rested up for two days and [Wednesday] we got back in it. We had a pretty hard practice knowing that we’ll have [another] day of rest.”With a solid defense already in place, Wisconsin is now looking to get their offense rolling. In the spots they missed last weekend at home – connecting on passes and controlling the ball in front of the opponent’s goal – the Badgers are hoping corrections will bring more success.“We’re doing a lot of focusing on our top of game play, which is positioning,” junior defenseman Arnel Zahorivic said. “Keeping the ball in small areas and then distributing it out wide. Just keep working on that and keep building so we can use that against Creighton. I think we’ll be very effective with that.”Despite all the work put in during practice, UW knows Creighton will still be one of its biggest challenges this year. For the young team, playing a top-20 team is certainly a helpful experience.“We’ll give it our best shot,” Succa said. “It’ll be a challenge, but I think it’ll be good for us.”Heading back on the road again will serve as a test for the Badgers. So far this season, the squad has been learning a lot with every game. While the Badgers feel they are continually improving, going on the road against a tough team will show how far the team has come.“We’re developing as well,” Zahirovic said. “If we just keep working hard, keep improving, I don’t see why we couldn’t put up a challenge against them. After all they’re just another team just like us.”last_img read more

After Henry’s shocking death, Pace remembers, perseveres

first_imgTo see the effect Danroy ‘D.J.’ Henry had on a profound number of people, look no further than the 800 that crowded the Pace University gymnasium in his memory last Sunday. One by one, Henry’s friends and other Pace students told stories and anecdotes about how they remembered him best. ‘Danroy was very popular and had a lot of friends,’ said Joe O’Donnell, Pace’s athletic director. ‘I think the students that got up and said something were able to get some of the feelings they had out.’ Henry was shot and killed by two police officers Oct. 17 outside a bar in Thornwood, N.Y. His death occurred hours after Pace lost its Homecoming game to Stonehill College, a college coincidentally located in Henry’s hometown of Easton, Mass. Henry’s death has become a national story. There are highly conflicting accounts of the shooting from police and witnesses, and there are questions about whether proper medical attention was given to him after he was shot. Pace will take the field for its first game after Henry’s death this Saturday in a league matchup against University of New Haven. This is one of the first steps toward normalcy in what has been a hectic series of events for the Pace football team. Or as close to normal as it can get.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text O’Donnell said the team has taken steps to bring things back to the way they were. Last week’s game against Bentley College — which was supposed to be Homecoming in Waltham, Mass. — was cancelled. The players took Sunday and Monday off from practice after the death of their teammate and resumed practices Tuesday. O’Donnell said this was an effort to bring back the normalcy to which the team is accustomed. The last time Pace had to cancel a game was in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. But O’Donnell doesn’t expect that normalcy to return soon. ‘There’s nothing in the makeup of college kids to handle something like this,’ he said. ‘Most people don’t experience the loss of a parent, brother or sister until later in life. To lose something like this, this is very dramatic.’ That Sunday night, a candlelight vigil was held on the football field. Immediately following the vigil, those students returned to the Pace gym to tell their stories. Stories of how Henry is remembered as a genuinely good-natured person. Pat Casey, a senior finance, accounting and entrepreneurship and emerging enterprises major at Syracuse, went to Oliver Ames High School in Easton, Mass., with Henry and played football with him for three years. When he first met Henry during their freshman year of high school, Henry was a much smaller person. After putting in time in the weight room year after year, Casey said he became fit and much more of an athlete. He said Henry always planned to play sports in college. A three-sport athlete at Oliver Ames, he constantly put in effort to succeed. After graduating from Oliver Ames in 2007, Henry did a post-graduate year to improve as a player and was recruited to play at Iona College. When Iona dropped its football program in 2008, Henry searched for a new team and found a home at Division II Pace, located in Westchester County. ‘He wasn’t insecure at all, he was comfortable in his own skin,’ Casey said. ‘He knew what he was capable of. He wanted to grow from that.’ Casey called him an inspiring figure. ‘He was one of those kids who really was working his a** off and really going hard, going out of his way to be nice to people,’ Casey said. ‘He showed appreciation for where he was in life.’ So Pace will show that same respect to its routine. For them, getting on the field each Saturday is normal. So at 1 p.m., when the game kicks off, some of that normal might return. That return to the field helped Connecticut after a similar tragedy occurred in Storrs last season. Almost a year to the day before Henry was killed, UConn cornerback Jasper Howard was stabbed and killed at an on-campus event following the Huskies’ win over Louisville. UConn took to the field to escape the pressures surrounding the situation. ‘The games and practices were really healthy because it let you think just about football and nothing else,’ said Connecticut Associate Director of Athletics/Communications Mike Enright. ‘It’s a place to escape, if you will.’ UConn scheduled practices and press conferences in the days following Howard’s death at the same time they had always been scheduled. It wasn’t normal, but it was consistent. It helped to keep the team together. The team also emphasized the attitude of playing the remaining games the way Howard ‘would have wanted them to play football,’ Enright said. That is a sentiment that also holds true for the Setters. ‘The attitude is there. It’s a good attitude,’ O’Donnell said. ‘They want to play this for D.J., which will be normal. … We try not to get too emotional.’ After discussing with his captains, head coach Chris Dapolito thought this was the best move for the team. ‘We’ve talked to everyone, we’ve talked to the faculty,’ O’Donnell said. ‘The faculty has been absolutely wonderful in the ways they’ve tried to help the student-athletes get back to normalcy. If there is a normalcy after this.’ [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 27, 2010 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Commentslast_img read more

Men’s hockey: Badgers notch first Big Ten win of season against Ohio State

first_imgFriday night’s loss seemed to be the final straw for Wisconsin men’s hockey head coach Mike Eaves.After another Big Ten defeat against Ohio State, the Badgers were still searching for their first conference win of the season Saturday.In game one of Wisconsin’s two-game road series against Ohio State, the Badgers got off to a hot start when forward Corbin McGuire scored on a rebound less than five minutes into the game to give Wisconsin an early one goal lead.While Wisconsin remained ahead by a goal one period, the second period completely belonged to the Buckeyes. A goal by Ohio State’s Tyler Lundley returned the momentum to the Buckeyes, and they never gave it back.With two minutes to play in the period, OSU forward Nick Shilkey put the Buckeyes up for good with a wrist shot that found the top left corner of the net.The Buckeyes entered the third leading 2-1, and that was how the game ended following a scoreless third period. The Badgers were outshot 42-20, and after the game, it appeared Eaves had run out of patience with his young team.“They have to start to get it going,” Eaves said. “That’s what is a little bit frustrating as a coach, and I think it’s on them as players. After Christmas, there are no true freshmen anymore. We should be better, so we have to figure that out.”Eaves was also critical of senior goaltender Joel Rumpel, who made forty saves in Friday night’s 2-1 defeat.“He kept us in it, he kept it 2-1, but I’ll be the first to say he’ll want both goals back,” Eaves said. “He played like the rest of the team. He was inconsistent.”But on Saturday in game two of the series, the Badgers seemed to take their coach’s words to heart, responding with an impressive bounce-back performance in Saturday night’s rematch that gave them their first Big Ten win of the season.After Ohio State scored just over a minute into Saturday night’s game, Wisconsin’s Grant Besse erased the Buckeyes’ lead in the 12th minute of the period with his 10th goal of the year.The teams remained deadlocked at one at the first intermission, but Ohio State’s Christian Lampasso opened up the scoring in the second period eight minutes to put the Buckeyes up by a goal once again.Down 2-1 in the second period, Wisconsin was in the same situation they were in the night before. However, this time, it would be a much happier ending for the Badgers.Four minutes after Ohio State took the lead, Wisconsin senior Joseph LaBate scored off a pass from Adam Rockwood to bring the Badgers and the Buckeyes even at two goals apiece.The game remained tied at two until just over four minutes were left in the final period when Rockwood and LaBate combined for a goal again. This time LaBate fed Rockwood for the late go-ahead goal.Led by goaltender Joel Rumpel, who made 28 saves, the Badgers held Ohio State without a goal in the final four minutes to escape Columbus with their first conference win.Next weekend, the Badgers will return to the Kohl Center to host Michigan State, hoping to put together their first winning streak of the season.last_img read more

Arsenal defeat Vietnam in historic match

first_imgArsenal strolled to a 7-1 victory on Wednesday over Vietnam’s national team in a match which saw the first English premier league club play in the Communist country.Olivier Giroud drove home the first goal just five minutes into the game to rapturous applause from the packed stadium. He secured a hat-trick just moments before the end of the first half.Action gathered pace in the second half, despite hot and humid temperatures, with Arsenal scoring another four goals. As the humidity turned to rain, Vietnam fought back with a goal close to full-time, but the two minutes of extra time wasn’t enough to save them.Arsene Wenger’s team will wrap up their pre-season tour in Japan with two more friendlies. They beat an Indonesian team 7-0 late Sunday.Premiership clubs are very popular in Vietnam – much to the detriment of local teams. Around 25 000 fans turned out to cheer Wenger and his players at My Dinh National Stadium during the training session Tuesday night.Devoted fans have been following the North London team since they arrived in the capital on Monday. But one fan made such a big impression that he was invited to lead Arsenal onto the pitch for the game on Wednesday, according to media reports.The fan, dubbed “Running Man” by the club, was filmed from the window as he ran alongside the team’s bus for several kilometres. He was eventually allowed onto the bus to get his shirt signed. Despite the team’s popularity, the Gunners’ historic trip doesn’t come without controversy. The team’s sponsor in Vietnam, business group Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL), was the subject of a report in May by Global Witness, a campaign group which highlights abuses related to the exploitation of natural resources.The group accused HAGL of acquiring vast amounts of land and contributing to environmental and human rights abuses at its rubber plantations in Laos and Cambodia. HAGL, which is run by one of Vietnam’s richest men, Doan Nguyen Duc, denied the accusations.“As a large listed company, we always abide by the laws and regulations of countries where we do business, and we meet all the environmental criteria of Laos and Cambodia,” he was quoted as saying in state-run newspaper Viet Nam News in May.last_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersWith a dominant Shaquille O’Neal and an unstoppable Kobe Bryant, the Lakers ran through Portland by a margin of 14.6 points in what was then a best-of-5 three-game sweep; 9.25 points against Sacramento in the second round and destroyed the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs by an average 22.25 points.“It felt easy while we were doing it,” said Brian Shaw, a guard on those teams and now an assistant coach on Luke Walton’s Lakers staff. “I don’t think we were really ever threatened in any of the first three rounds.”It was only in Game 1 of the Finals against Philadelphia 76ers guard Allen Iverson, who scored 48 points and stepped over Tyronn Lue en route to victory, that the Lakers were tripped up, losing, 107-101, in overtime.The Lakers stared at their feet as they shuffled off the Staples Center court that night. Bryant walked briskly past his teammates into the locker room.“When we lost that first game it sent a shudder through the entire team and through all of L.A.,” said Mark Madsen, a Lakers rookie in 2000-01. “But then to go on and win decisively after that, in Philadelphia, it made it special.” When it came to dominant postseason teams, the 2001 Lakers were without peer in NBA history.Then these Golden State Warriors came along, assembling one of the most fearsome and star-studded lineups ever assembled and breezed to an NBA-record 12-0 start in the playoffs.With Game 1 of the Finals on Thursday night at Oracle Arena in Oakland, observers are only left to wonder: Could the Warriors, facing LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for the third straight year, become the first team to go undefeated to win a title?Sixteen years ago, the Lakers were the team that came the closest. Ron Harper, a veteran on that team, remembers someone saying after Game 1 that the Finals were shaping up to be a good series.“I said, ‘No it’s not going to be. We’re going to win the next four games,’” Harper said. “I knew they won the first game. The only thing they did is make us upset.”The Lakers finished the postseason 15-1, the best winning percentage in NBA history.Will the Warriors challenge that mark? After sweeping Portland, Utah and the Spurs, they became just the third team in league history to enter the Finals undefeated in the playoffs, joining the ’01 and 1989 Lakers.Cleveland, coached by Lue, missed joining that club by a hair, losing Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals to Boston and brings a 12-1 mark into the Finals.“As much as Golden State is being talked about,” Shaw said, “Cleveland is still the defending champions.”The Warriors have lost once dating to March 14 and are beating teams in the playoffs by a healthy average of 16.3 points.“They force you to play a perfect game and that was just the thing that we did too,” said Devean George, who played on three Lakers championship teams from 2000-02 and played for the Warriors in 2009-10. “We forced teams to really – like really – play perfect and really not make too many turnovers because if you gave us extra opportunities then it was going to be a bad night.”Sixteen years ago, the Lakers hit their stride in the final month of the season, winning the last eight games of the regular season.“Everything was hitting on all cylinders,” Shaw said, “and I think it was the combination of the players got into a rhythm, the coaching staff, everything we did, that’s kind of what you always hope for and we had that.”Said Madsen: “We got to the playoffs we knew other teams’ offenses better than they did. That was how much tape we watched, that was the preparation level. It was an impressive thing.”As significant as the Lakers’ streak was, members of the 2001 team all repeated that the most important thing was hoisting the Larry O’Brien Trophy at the end of the series with the Sixers, rather than what their postseason record was.“Whether Golden State goes 16-0 if they win it, or 16-3, the ultimate goal is to win the championship,” Shaw said.Harper agreed that regular-season accomplishments or reaching the Finals undefeated only has meaning if a title follows.“When Golden State was 73-9 (last year), they had a great year, but they didn’t win the NBA championship,” said Harper, who won five titles as a player, including three with Michael Jordan’s Bulls. “That’s like when New England went 18-0 and then they lost the Super Bowl. Who cares? You lost the Super Bowl. That’s what you play for.”Cleveland won 53 games in the regular season, while Golden State scorched the league to a 67-15 mark, boasting the league’s top-ranked offense and No. 2 defense.In the playoffs, however, Cleveland has been nearly as dominant as Golden State through the first three rounds and seemingly little separates the two sides that have traded championships the last two years.Harper, an Ohio native who was drafted by the Cavs in 1986, said, “It’s not going to be a sweep. That will not happen.”There should be, after more than a month of romps, some competition.“I don’t want to see what has been going on, I want last-second shots, nail-biters, a minute left, the game is tied, that’s what I want to see,” George said. “I don’t want to see a sweep or 20-point blowouts.”Those are only fun for the players on the team running the table.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Suzyn Waldman, Yankees broadcaster, sings the national anthem to fulfill a promise to Gerrit Cole

That’s baseball, Suzyn.Long before Gerrit Cole put ink to paper and realized a boyhood dream, Yankees radio voice Suzyn Waldman made a promise to him: Sign with New York and you’ll get to hear me sing the national anthem. Well, prior to Friday night’s Yankees home opener, Waldman kept that promise: She sang the anthem for an audience of Cole and everyone else who was allowed in the building.Tonight’s National Anthem was performed by Suzyn Waldman. Suzyn was the very first voice ever heard on WFAN radio. She has been a beat reporter, TV analyst, play by play broadcaster, and is the first and only woman ever to have a full-time analyst job with a Major League team. pic.twitter.com/9IEmHzzv6D— New York Yankees (@Yankees) July 31, 2020A moment years in the making. pic.twitter.com/woxgETnTFX— New York Yankees (@Yankees) July 31, 2020MORE: Did Donald Trump lie about throwing out first pitch at Yankees game?It’s far from the first time Waldman used the mic for singing and not analyzing. The trailblazing, longtime analyst for the Yankees’ radio network has sung the national anthem not only at Yankee Stadium but other baseball stadiums many times in the past, including prior to Game 7 of the 1986 ALCS at Fenway Park. Suzyn Waldman is singing the National Anthem before tonight’s Yankees home openerShe can really do it all pic.twitter.com/uE1OueHjMa— Talkin’ Yanks (@TalkinYanks) July 31, 2020The 73-year-old Waldman was a stage actor in musicals long before heading up to the booth, where her pairing with play-by-play man John Sterling is in its 16th season for WFAN.

BAFFERT TRIO OF EL KABEIR, HOPPERTUNITY & CAT BURGLAR HEAD FIELD OF EIGHT IN SATURDAY’S GRADE II, $500,000 SAN ANTONIO STAKES GOING 1 1/8 MILES ON THE MAIN TRACK

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 3, 2016) – Bob Baffert’s trio of El Kabeir, Hoppertunity and Cat Burglar will all hope to cash in on the $500,000 purse in Saturday’s 79th running of the Grade II San Antonio Stakes at 1 1/8 miles contested on the main track.Formerly trained by New York based John Terranova, El Kabeir has been in Baffert’s shedrow here in Southern California since early December and will have his 4-year-old debut and a return to longer distances this Saturday. A winner of the Grade III, one mile Jerome at Aqueduct in January of his 3-year-old year and also a winner of the Grade III, mile and a sixteenth Gotham in March, El Kabeir most recently ran fourth to the 2015 Eclipse Champion Sprinter, Runhappy in the seven furlong, Grade I Malibu Dec. 26 at Santa Anita.With two bullet works serving as his most recent over the Santa Anita main track, El Kabeir would appear to like his new base of operations.

Not a caring Government

first_imgDear Editor,The unemployment rate in Guyana is staggering and climbing every day. In the three years of this A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition, the Government has demonstrated its inability to grow the economy and to create jobs, especially for young people in the rural areas. About two months ago, a 58-year old resident of Tempie, Marlin Kwok, invested over $400,000 to construct a car-wash bay for her 19-year old grandson, Joshua Johnson, to keep him gainfully employed. She was concerned of the high usage of drugs by youths in the neighbouring Number 30 Village, and was determined to give her grandson an opportunity to make something meaningful with his life. She viewed her investment as a means of creating employment for him and other youths in the village of Tempie. The wash bay employs three, with others on a part-time basic when things get busy on the weekends. But this is about to end.Last Sunday, Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) APNU Regional Councillor, Dillon Crawford, hand-delivered a letter signed by his wife, Oneca Sam, the Overseer of the Tempie/Seafield NDC, advising of the imminent closure of this car-wash bay if it is not “demolished” within 48 hours.In an interview I had with Marlin Kwok, she claims that several members of the Tempie/Seafield NDC, including the Chairman, Frank Wilson, had prior knowledge of the wash bay at the time of construction and could have stopped her then, rather than waiting until she had spent over $400,000 to complete the project. The area is concreted with a wooden ramp. There is no building associated with the car-wash.Over 12 years ago, Kwok built a small wooden road-side shack on the same reserve, where she has been selling fruits and vegetables since. She was never given notice to move by the previous Administration, and wonders if her livelihood will now be taken away by the APNU+AFC she voted for in 2015.Admittedly, Ms Kwok is well aware that both her fruit shack and her grandson’s car-wash bay are illegally constructed on Government’s reserve. However, there is much need for both these services in the Tempie area, and the need to encourage more young entrepreneurs to help reduce the unemployment rate.In addition, there is no plan by Government that I am aware of, to utilise this piece of waste land in the foreseeable future. There are no neighbours close by to complain, and the water used by the car-wash is disposed of properly without causing floods. So why not leave them alone? These people are just trying to survive and make an honest living during the hard times we’re facing as a nation. And any attempt to “demolish” this wash bay will not only deny them a chance of achieving the “good life” the Government touts about, but this heartless act would send a strong message to their own supporters that the APNU/AFC Government is not caring at all.Sincerely,Harry GillPPP/C Memberof Parliamentlast_img read more

Chelsea starlet admits he’s stunned by his success

first_img1 Chelsea starlet Ruben Loftus-Cheek admits he is still pleasantly surprised to have made his first-team breakthrough at Stamford Bridge this season.The 19-year-old midfielder started the first Premier League match of his career against Liverpool two weeks ago, and has now made three league appearances for the champions.Jose Mourinho has revealed the academy graduate will be a permanent fixture in the first team next season as the Blues attempt to defend their crown, and that is a real surprise for the England Under-21 star who was on the periphery at the start of the campaign.“I look back to pre-season and I didn’t even go away with the first team, so it has been a massive jump,” he said.“I didn’t expect to spend half the season in the first-team squad so I am really happy with how things have gone.” Ruben Loftus-Cheek last_img read more

Arsene Wenger revels in Arsenal’s ‘perfect week’ following back-to-back wins

first_imgArsene Wenger has reflected on a “perfect week” for Arsenal, after his side followed up Champions League victory over Bayern Munich with three points against Everton to go top of the Premier League table.The Gunners sealed a surprise 2-0 win over the German giants on Tuesday to kick-start their European campaign, and were eager to claim maximum points against the Toffees with title rivals Manchester City facing a tough derby clash with United at Old Trafford on Sunday.First-half goals Olivier Giroud and defender Laurent Koscielny in the space of two minutes looked to have set the Gunners up for a comfortable evening, before Ross Barkley hauled Everton back into the contest with a brilliant solo goal on the stroke of half-time.Both sides had chances to add to the scoreline after the break, with Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Romelu Lukaku all hitting the woodwork, but Arsenal were the more impressive side to seal a 2-1 win over an Everton side which finished the game with ten men after Gareth Barry earned two yellow cards.And while Wenger accepts there is little to read into the league table just yet, things are now starting to come together for the Gunners“It is a perfect week and it is not easy to have that,” said the Arsenal boss.“I believe that we will keep that solidarity, that desire to do well and I think we are well focused to do well and together we have improved on that front and we know that when we have the ball we can create goal chances.“We went to Watford and won 3-0 and beat Bayern Munich 2-0 and beat Everton tonight in one week, it has been a fantastic week. It is not easy.“The only negatives is that we lost some players through in jury during the week, but I will have to rest some players Tuesday night against Sheffield [Wednesday in the League Cup] as I think for some players I think it will be one game too many for them.”Wenger admitted he did not expect Arsenal to be at the head of the table at this stage following their poor start.“I thought after ten games, no, honestly. I thought it would take much longer because Manchester City started with five wins, so it was difficult to envisage that we would come back but we had no choice,” he added.“I’m pleased because we had a very difficult start. After a difficult game against West Ham [a 2-0 defeat at the Emirates on the opening day] nobody would have predicted we would have been at the top after ten gams.“But we are there, that shows we have made some ground up, so let’s keep our togetherness and fight for the future games, that is all we can do.“It is very early in the season but we are happy to be where we are.”last_img read more

SPEEDING DRIVERS WALK FREE FROM COURT AFTER LOOPHOLE EXPOSED

first_imgThousands of people who were fined for speeding could escape without paying a fine or getting penalty points after  a loophole was exposed by a Donegal court.The glitch in the way speeding summonses are issued by private camera speed operators Go Safe has already seen a number of people having their cases dismissed at Buncrana District Court.Judge Paul Kelly dismissed the cases after drivers simply claimed they did not receive the fines in the post to their homes. Now the Garda Press office has admitted to Donegaldaily.com that summonses issued by the privately-operated speed camera company are sent by ordinary post.A number of people who appeared before Judge Kelly said the first they knew of a speeding fine was when Gardai arrived at their homes.They claimed they had never received any notification of the fines by post.Judge Kelly asked those who claimed the speeding fines did not arrive at their homes if they were prepared to swear on oath that this was the case.Each person did so and Judge Kelly was left with no option but to dismiss the cases.One woman told Judge Kelly that she was very embarrassed by the incident.“The first I knew of any speeding fine was when the Gardai called to my house. It was very embarrassing.“These letters should be sent by registered post so they can make sure that people get them.“I have had to take a day off work to be here in court and I don’t think that’s right. This kind of thing shouldn’t happen,” she said.The Garda Press office said they could not comment on the operational matters of the Go Safe company.Many of those employed to man the Go Safe vans are former Gardai.Go Safe began in November last year and has designated 750 safety camera sites in 518 zones across the country.The numbers of drivers getting penalty points for speeding this year is expected to surpass last year in many counties.Between January and June of this year almost 96,000 drivers had received penalty points.This figure is over 70% of the total for last year which was 131,000.COPYRIGHT: DONEGALDAILY.COMSPEEDING DRIVERS WALK FREE FROM COURT AFTER LOOPHOLE EXPOSED was last modified: September 11th, 2011 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:Buncrana District CourtfinesGoSafeJudge Paul Kellyspeedinglast_img read more

Dons can treasure this win

One out of two isn’t bad. In fact, Marcroft may well remember Friday’s events for the rest of her life. Cerritos (6-0 Suburban League) trailed 18-15 in the first game, then went on a 10-0 run to take momentum into Game 2. The Dons led 20-13, but Mayfair (8-8, 5-1) made it 20-19 before the Dons again pulled away. “We won this for (Marcroft), she wanted it so bad,” Cerritos senior outside hitter Kristy Trimble said. Cerritos had match point at 24-21 in Game 3, but first-year Mayfair coach Zac Chan called timeout and sent his players back out to tie the game at 24-24. The two teams then traded points from a 24-24 tie until it was 36-36, with opposing senior outside hitters Jill Sorem for Mayfair and Cerritos’ Kristy Trimble playing major roles. Finally, Cerritos won, though the Monsoons can still end up with the league’s top playoff seed if they beat the Dons in the season’s final match Nov. 3. last_img read more

Newspaper circulation falls 2.6 percent in six months

first_imgNEW YORK – Average weekday circulation at U.S. newspapers fell 2.6 percent during the six-month period ending in September in the latest sign of trouble in the newspaper business, an industry group reported Monday. Sunday circulation also fell 3.1 percent at newspapers reporting to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, according to an analysis of the data by the Newspaper Association of America. The declines from the same period a year ago show an acceleration of a years-long trend of falling circulation at daily newspapers as more people, especially young adults, turn to the Internet for news and as newspapers cut back on less profitable circulation. In the previous six-month reporting period ending in March, weekday circulation fell 1.9 percent at U.S. daily newspapers and Sunday circulation fell 2.5 percent. By comparison, a year ago newspapers reported a 0.9 percent decline in weekday circulation and a 1.5 percent fall Sundays. Newspapers also face sluggish growth in advertising, higher newsprint prices and increasing concern among investors about newspaper growth prospects. The second-largest newspaper publisher in the country, Knight Ridder Inc., is facing a revolt from two of its top shareholders, who want the company to be sold. John Murray, the vice president in charge of circulation at the NAA, said on a conference call with reporters that, despite the continued slippage in overall paid circulation, newspapers were retaining subscribers longer. That can save newspapers money over time as costs fall for replacing subscribers who don’t renew. Newspaper executives also say advertisers are increasingly looking for “quality” circulation, meaning copies that aren’t sold at a discount or given away for free to people who might be less interested in actually reading the paper than someone who signed up and is paying full price. To that end, newspapers are steadily reducing their reliance on telemarketing to replace lost subscribers since those readers are more likely to drop out. Telemarketing has also become more difficult and expensive after the national “do-not-call” law went into effect in 2003. As of 2004, the number of new subscribers from telemarketing fell to 30.9 percent versus 39.1 percent in 2002, the NAA says. Newspapers are also hoping to keep subscribers longer by signing them up for recurring payment options such as automatic checking account deductions or credit card charges. Murray said the portion of papers using automatic payment plans rose to 15 percent last year versus less than 5 percent two years before that. Stricter circulation reporting rules and increased caution following a circulation misstatement scandal a year ago have also led to publishers being more conservative in reporting their circulation figures, Murray said. “The price of making a mistake went up dramatically in terms of visibility and notoriety,” Murray said. Four major newspapers that had been barred from filing circulation data for the previous two reporting periods deferred making reports until their next six-month audits are complete. Those papers are Newsday of New York’s Long Island; The Dallas Morning News; the Chicago Sun-Times; and Hoy, a Spanish-language newspaper in New York. Four other newspapers whose circulation was affected by Hurricane Katrina did not file statements with the Audit Bureau: The Times-Picayune of New Orleans; the American Press in Lake Charles, La.; The Beaumont Enterprise in Texas; and The Daily Leader in Brookhaven, Miss. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Circulation has been steadily declining at newspapers for several years as readers look to other media for news.

Finn Harps pair detained by Gardai after public order incident

first_imgFinn Harps have said that they are ‘aware of a situation’ after two players were reported to have been detained by Gardai following an alleged incident in Dundalk.The alleged incident happened in the early hours of Monday morning on Park Street in Dundalk.The two players, brothers Michael and Ciaran O’Connor, who featured in Saturday night’s 2-0 win over Cobh Ramblers, will be available for Harps’ game against Wexford Youths on Friday night in Ballybofey, the club has said. Michael O’Connor is on loan at Harps from Shamrock Rovers, while Ciaran O’Connor is in his second spell at Harps having previously been at the club last season.Gardai have confirmed that two males were detained for public order offences and were held for a number of hours.Harps have held their own internal enquiries.“The club is aware of a situation but cannot make any further comment,” a club spokesman said.

South Africa’s Dungeons surf spot unleashes world class waves

first_imgSituated at the foot of the Sentinel Mountain outside Hout Bay, Western Cape, the Dungeons has for years been a popular, but challenging surfing spot for both locals and globetrotting surfing adventurers.[Monday Mind Surf] Starving for the next swell? Fill up on this sweet Dungeonsslab- https://t.co/VJS5pZUnFo pic.twitter.com/OPMRJDnC8u—Zigzag – SA Surf Mag (@Zigzagsurf) August 29,2016Voted as one of the must-surf ‘big wave’ destinations by numerous international surfing experts, the Dungeons’ distinctive giant swells are few and far between, but always worth the wait.Thisis a barreling Dungeons set!! (Found at http://t.co/33qXyKVYEL) #surf #barrel #getLifted #surfing #surfingPhoto pic.twitter.com/2bs9RtTWwu—HomeGrownClone (@homegrownclone) August27, 2014The big waves usually occur more frequently during the South African winter, generated from Southern Hemisphere ocean storms known as the Roaring Forties. This year, the pinnacle of the Dungeons’ power was on 24 August with local and international surfers, some of whom wait months on the shoreline for the big wave season, fully prepared to take on the legendary wave.The Dungeons was first ridden in 1984 by Cape Town surfers Pierre de Villiers and Peter Button. Ten years later, the advancement of surfing equipment such as lighter boards and better wetsuits allowed others to tackle this mythical Cape of Storms beast.Wave swells of over 14m due to the combination of wind conditions and the reef layouts have been recorded at Dungeons.The more common 3m to 4m waves, however, are not for the fainthearted. Sportswriter Steve Barilotti calls the Dungeons “a deadly prima donna of a wave, not to mention a favourite feeding ground for Great White (sharks)”.Upclose and knarly Dungeons later today thanks Shaun Thompson for invite going tobe great the surf is huge pic.twitter.com/siTsbTBpQk—Wayne Roberts (@WaynoRoberts) April 23,2016Sharks attacks took place in the past when surfers swam through the dark and deep channel to get to the breaks, but these days they are safely towed using jet- skis to get to where the big waves are at their best.While the sharks still pose an obstacle, it is the waves themselves that has built a legendary and deadly status.Wipe-outs are common, even amongst the most seasoned surfers. Yet if negotiated successfully, the Dungeons’ payoff is said to be indescribable. Beginning with a harrowing near-vertical take-off atop of a swell, surfers can tackle one or more churning bowl sections, with rides lasting for up to 300m before tapering off into the deep-water channel.Untitled – Dungeons – Cape Town – South Africa, 2014 © Grier Fisher @GrierF #surf #sport #fotodelgiorno pic.twitter.com/v5neKPsBdf— Fotodel Giorno (@Foto_del_Giorno) September 21, 2015Masters of the Dungeons include South Africa’s Grant ‘Twiggy’ Baker and Jeremy Johnson, who spend months preparing at other locations for a single session in the Dungeons. Despite the dangers, the spot proves inescapable for surfers keen to prove their mettle.American Greg Long, widely regarded as the best big wave surfer in the world, is the only surfer in history to score a perfect 10-pointer ride on the Dungeons at the Red Bull Big Wave Africa event in 2008.Source: EWN SouthAfrica.info reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SouthAfrica.info materiallast_img read more

World Cup: Rodriguez bags brace for Colombia, sends Uruguay packing

first_imgJames Rodriguez struck twice to seal Colombia’s 2-0 win and eliminate Uruguay from the FIFA World Cup James Rodriguez scored one of the best goals of the tournament and then added a second to put Colombia into the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time with a 2-0 win over Uruguay on Saturday.Statistical Highlights | Match Photos Rodriguez gave his team the lead with a stunning long-range volley on the turn in the 28th minute and netted the second from close range shortly after the break as Colombia dominated a Uruguay side that sorely missed banned striker Luis Suarez.Rodriguez now has a tournament-leading five goals in Brazil and further enhanced his status as perhaps the tournament’s biggest revelation.Uruguay, meanwhile, struggled badly in attack without Suarez and his replacement Diego Forlan was substituted in the 53rd after a disappointing performance in what was probably his final World Cup appearance.Colombia will play Brazil in the quarterfinals on July 4 in Fortaleza after the host beat Chile in a penalty shootout earlier Saturday.Rodriguez showed once again that the Brazilians have every reason to be wary.The opener was his most spectacular goal yet. He chested the ball down with his back to goal well outside the area and in one fluid motion turned around and fired a left-foot volley that went off the underside of the crossbar and into the net.His second was a perfectly executed team move as Colombia worked the ball over from the right flank to the left, where Pablo Armero sent in a cross that was met by Juan Cuadrado at the far post. Cuadrado headed back across goal toward Rodriguez, who slotted in from just a few yards (meters) out.advertisementUruguay coach Oscar Tabarez tried to respond with a double substitution, taking off Forlan and Alvaro Pereira for Gaston Ramirez and Cristhian Stuani. That livened up the attack, with goalkeeper David Ospina having to make good saves from Cristhian Rodriguez and Maxi Pereira before diving to push away a shot from Edinson Cavani in the 84th.But in the end Uruguay simply couldn’t cope without Suarez, who was banned for four months for biting an opponent in the group-stage victory against Italy that sent the team through to the next round. Suarez also missed Uruguay’s first game of the tournament, a 3-1 loss to Costa Rica, before scoring both goals in a 2-1 win over England.Forlan was named the best player of the 2010 World Cup but again looked well past his prime and leaves Brazil without scoring a goal.Rodriguez was taken off near the end to a standing ovation, and then rushed onto the field with his teammates at the final whistle.Team Line-ups(from):Uruguay: Fernando Muslera; Martin Caceres, Jose Gimenez, Diego Godin, Maximiliano Pereira; Alvaro Pereira (Gaston Ramirez, 53rd), Alvaro Gonzalez (Abel Hernandez, 67th), Egidio Arevalo, Cristian Rodriguez; Edinson Cavani, Diego Forlan (Christian Stuani, 53rd)Colombia: David Ospina; Juan Zuniga, Cristian Zapata, Mario Yepes, Pablo Armero; Juan Cuadrado (Fredy Guarin, 81st), Abel Aguilar, Carlos Sanchez, James Rodriguez (Adrian Ramos, 85th); Teofilo Gutierrez (Alexander Mejia, 68th), Jackson Martinezlast_img read more

FIFA Confederations Cup: Mexico recover to beat New Zealand 2-1 in fiery game

first_imgMexico asserted their superiority in the second half against New Zealand to avoid a Confederations Cup embarrassment on Wednesday, coming from behind to win a fiery Group A encounter 2-1 that ended in a brawl.The on-pitch fracas involved so many players that the referee had to go to touchline to assess the skirmishes on a screen, rather than just relying on video replay assistants.”It was intense, it was competitive,” New Zealand coach Anthony Hudson said after the game that was settled by Oribe Peralta’s 72nd-minute strike for Mexico.”If I was a big team in world football and we were taken right to the edge by a smaller team like New Zealand there’s a certain amount of discomfort there and big pressure. So I would imagine that’s part of (the incident).”Three players were eventually booked for their involvement in the second flashpoint of the game in the south Russian resort city of Sochi where Mexico made eight changes from the side that drew with Portugal.Tensions erupted in the first half when Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio swore at the New Zealand coaching staff over an injury to Carlos Salcedo that medics later determined would rule the defender out of the rest of the tournament.Salcedo injured his shoulder while falling in an off-the-ball tangle with Chris Wood, who angered the Mexicans by shooting while his opponent was incapacitated on the turf.”I apologize, my words were wrong,” Osorio said through a translator of the incident captured on the official broadcast feed. “Our players and myself were shouting to stop the game but there was no reaction on the side.advertisement”The game was really rough and violent. That’s unacceptable and why I lost my temper. I felt very offended and I had some insults in my direction in Spanish. It’s true that the camera shows some things I said but (New Zealand’s) assistant coach is responsible for what happened.”After Salcedo was carried off on a stretcher, Wood went on to put New Zealand into a surprise lead in the 42nd minute. New Zealand’s hopes of a first-ever victory in its fourth appearance at the World Cup warm-up tournament were thwarted nine minutes into the second half. Javier Aquino and Marco Fabian combined to set up Raul Jimenez to strike on the turn into the top corner.Peralta completed Mexico’s comeback in the Fisht Stadium by meeting Javier Aquino’s cutback and sweeping a shot past goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic.”We took them to the very limit,” Hudson said after his team was eliminated with a game remaining in Group A, “and at times they couldn’t handle that.”last_img read more

Trout Time: AL All-Stars top NL 6-3

first_imgCINCINNATI — Mike Trout flashed the skill that puts him at the front of baseball’s new generation, just moments after four of the all-time greats walked off the field.Trout became the first player in 38 years to homer leading off an All-Star Game, then became the first player to take home the Midsummer Classic’s MVP award two years in row.A new-look All-Star Game finished with the same old result. The AL beat the NL 6-3 on July 14 and will open the World Series at home for the 10th time in 13 years.“It’s obviously a humbling honor with the MVPs,” Trout said in his usual understated, aw-shucks manner.After Trout completed a career All-Star cycle in just his fifth big league season, Prince Fielder delivered. He drove in two runs, sending Trout blazing home ahead of Joc Pederson’s throw with the run off Clayton Kershaw that put the AL ahead for good.In an age of dominant pitching, Felix Hernandez, winner David Price, Zach Britton, Dellin Betances and Wade Davis took scoreless turns in the AL’s third win a row.Playing on the AL West-leading Los Angeles Angels, Trout could add an even bigger honor this fall — his first World Series ring.“He can do anything that anybody can do on a baseball field,” AL Manager Ned Yost said. “He can hit with power. He can run. He can drive the gap. He’s a great defender. He’s just special. When you look at Mike, you don’t look at a 23-year-old. You look at a guy that is one of the best baseball players on this planet.”A season after the retirement of Derek Jeter dropped the curtain on the turn-of-century greats, Trout was among six starting position players under 25 — the most since 1965. At last year’s game in Minneapolis, he hit a tie-breaking triple and later a go-ahead double.This time Trout sent Zack Greinke’s fourth pitch, a 94 mph fastball on the outer half of the plate, over the wall in right next to the visiting bullpen for an opposite-field homer.Winner of his first season AL MVP award in 2014, the center fielder joined Willie Mays, Steve Garvey, Gary Carter and Cal Ripken, Jr. as the only two-time All-Star MVPs.Stars old and young gathered in one of baseball’s most traditional towns. The Reds became baseball’s first professional team in 1869, and players wore caps with horizontal stripes in an attempt at a 19th Century feel.Pete Rose, Cincinnati’s hometown hero and baseball’s banned career hits leader, was given an 80-second ovation when he walked onto the field before the game to join Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan and Barry Larkin, elected by fans as the Reds’ greatest players.Wearing a red jacket and tie and walking stiffly, the now 74-year-old Charlie Hustle was applauded as soon as his image appeared on the video boards, even before he emerged from the AL dugout.And in the first All-Star Game at Great American Ballpark, which opened in 2003, fans got to see some great ballplayers.Bench, changed into a blue jacket, returned with Hank Aaron, Mays and Sandy Koufax, voted baseball’s great living players by fans as part of the promotion.In a sentimental yet stunning reminder of generational change, Aaron, 81, and Morgan, 71, needed canes to reach the infield, and Mays, 84, was aided on and off the field by an assistant.“Growing up, I didn’t get to see them play that much,” Trout said. “But looking up, seeing highlights of all the Hall of Famers, it’s something I really look forward to looking at and I’m learning more about them, just how great they played in every respect of the game.”Above the field, new Commissioner Rob Manfred watched from a luxury suite, the first All-Star Game not presided over by Bud Selig since 1992.Many players of the new generation love bling in a manner that puzzles the old guard: Buster Posey wore a gold-colored helmet behind the plate, looking a bit like the Great Gazoo or a Praetorian Guard, accessorizing with a chest protector, shin guards and cleats all with gold-colored trim.Baltimore’s Adam Jones was shod in bright orange cleats, and Kansas City’s Lorenzo Cain and Washington’s Bryce Harper donned golden spikes.Trout, a Generation Y star with a baby boomer work ethic, completed a unique cycle on a clear evening that followed a heavy afternoon downpour.He singled in his All-Star debut in 2012, doubled to open 2013 game and tripled in the first inning last year. He was just the ninth player to hit for an All-Star cycle in his entire career, joining an illustrious list that includes Hall of Famers Ted Williams, Roberto Clemente, Ernie Banks, George Brett, Mike Schmidt and Mays. Fielder later became the 10th.No one had homered leading off an All-Star Game since 1977 at old Yankee Stadium, when Morgan connected off Jim Palmer. Greinke, coming off five scoreless outings, had not allowed a run since June 13.“It’s not easy,” Greinke said of pitching to Trout. “You’ve got like a 2-inch window up in the zone. If you throw it higher than that, he takes it. If you throw it lower, he does what he did.”Fielder and Cain had run-scoring hits in the fifth against Kershaw, the reigning NL MVP, that put the AL ahead 3-1.Manny Machado, at 23 another of the sport’s fresh faces, hit a double off the right-field wall against Francisco Rodriguez in the seventh and scored on Fielder’s sacrifice fly. And Brian Dozier, the last player added to the game as an injury replacement, hit a solo home run off Mark Melancon in the eighth.NL runs came home on Jhonny Peralta’s RBI single in the second, Andrew McCutchen’s homer off Chris Archer in the sixth and Brandon Crawford’s sacrifice fly in the ninth.NL manager Bruce Bochy thought ahead to some future ceremony involving Trout, perhaps at an All-Star Game or World Series, perhaps at the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.“He’s going to be standing there, I think, with the guys we saw tonight,” Bochy said.(RONALD BLUM, AP Baseball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Game Against Auburn Had Impact On Former Georgia Cornerback Josh Harvey-Clemons Choosing Louisville

first_imgRicardo Louis hauls in a touchdown off deflection against Georgia, in what is called the "Prayer at Jordan-Hare."Georgia doesn’t want to see a repeat of this in 2015.Louisville loses a number of defensive stars, including interception machine Gerod Holliman, from last year’s excellent defense, but a pair of Georgia transfers will look to pick up the slack. Josh Harvey-Clemons and Shaq Wiggins both played for current Louisville defensive coordinator at UGA. Harvey-Clemons was directly involved in Georgia’s heartbreaking 2013 loss to Auburn. Nick Marshall’s 4th-and-18 heave deflected off of his hands into those of receiver Ricardo Louis for the game-winning touchdown. That’s the type of play that could haunt a guy for his entire career, but for Harvey-Clemons, the chance to play Auburn again was a major selling point that helped lock up his transfer to Louisville.When former Georgia safety Josh Harvey-Clemons was being recruited to Louisville, one of the unexpected selling points for defensive coordinator Todd Grantham — formerly at UGA as well — was who the Cardinals would play in Harvey-Clemons’ first eligible game with the new program. Auburn. “When he said that,” Harvey-Clemons said, “I just knew it was meant for me to come here, really. I’ve been waiting to play them again. I look forward to it.”With Jeremy Johnson at quarterback, Auburn may be a bit more pass-oriented than they have been in recent years under Gus Malzahn. Harvey-Clemons and Wiggins might have a few opportunities to get some revenge on the Tigers come September 5 in Atlanta. [Courier-Journal]last_img read more

“What the world needs now is a new state of mind,” President Sarkozy told the Assembly. “We need a genuine, global new deal.”This must be based on the notion that “the common goods that belong to all of humankind must be the common responsibility of all of us,” he said, appealing to the UN to work to ensure that all people have access to resources, water, energy, food, medicine and knowledge.“I appeal solemnly to the United Nations to tackle the question of a fairer distribution of profits, of the earnings from commodities and raw materials and the benefits of new technologies,” he said, adding that the UN must also “tackle the issue of introducing more morality into financial capitalism so as to place it more at the service of development.”The President said justice, globally, requires a State for the Palestinian people, as well as the right of the people of Israel to live in security. “Justice means a return for the Lebanese people to the plentitude of freedom, independence and sovereignty” and for the Iraqi people “reconciliation and democracy.”Justice, he stressed, “means the same chances of success for each poor child in the world as for each rich one.”He urged strong action against the proliferation of nuclear arms, referring in particular to Iran. The country, he said, is entitled to nuclear power for civilian purposes. “But,” he added, “if we allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons, we would incur unacceptable risk to stability in the region and the world.”The issue, he said, could only be resolved “by combining firmness with dialogue.”President Sarkozy called for respect for diversity, national identities, religion, beliefs and cultures. “Attachment to one’s faith, to one’s language and culture, and to one’s way of life, thought and belief – all this is natural, legitimate and profoundly human,” he said. “To deny that is to sow the seeds of humiliation. It stokes the fires of the very nationalism, fanaticism and terrorism we claim to be fighting.”A “clash of civilizations,” he said, “will not be averted by forcing everyone to think and believe alike; cultural and religious diversity must be accepted everywhere and by all.” The UN, he said, embodies no one religious belief or ideology. “It embodies what is universal in all ideologies, all religions, all beliefs… which is why it is the only place in the world where all people can speak to one another and understand each other.” 25 September 2007French President Nicolas Sarkozy today urged national leaders attending the annual high-level debate of the United Nations General Assembly to forge a “new deal” that will ensure justice for all. read more

Church of England announces new 10 commandments for social media

One of the commandments mirrors Christianity’s “golden rule” by urging followers to speak to others online as you would speak to them in person. Another warns people to remember they may be held accountable for posts that could remain online forever.In a plea for kindness, the rules also encourage users to give credit if citing or sharing the work of others.The Church hopes the digital charter will be “a resource for Christians, people of other faiths and people of no faith”. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Mr Welby said: “Social media has transformed the way we live our lives. “Each time we interact online we have the opportunity either to add to currents of cynicism and abuse or to choose instead to share light and grace.” The Church of England will issue a set of social media commandments to combat “cynicism and abuse” online.Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, will outline them on Monday in a live video message from Facebook’s British headquarters.He will encourage users to follow 10 “community guidelines” in a digital charter drawn up to reflect Christian values.People will be able to pledge to abide by them by posting a link on social media. The guidance acknowledges that social media provides “many joys”, such as its “immediate, interactive, conversational and open-ended” platform. But it says there can be “downsides” if users “do not apply the same common sense, kindness and sound judgment which we would use in a face-to-face encounter”. read more

Landmark New Century Resources life of mine contract for Waanyi Downer JV

first_imgDowner EDI Ltd has announced that, along with its joint venture partner Waanyi, it had been awarded a life of mine contract by New Century Resources Ltd (NCZ) to provide mining services for the mining of East Fault Block and South Block Resources immediately adjacent to the Century Open Pit Mine in Queensland.The execution of the Mining Services Agreement with the Waanyi Downer Joint Venture (WDJV) forms part of a unique compensation arrangement between New Century Resources and the Waanyi People. An industry first, it provides a viable mechanism to properly recognise the significant value of Indigenous Cultural Heritage, while also empowering Traditional Owner communities with mining developments occurring within their traditional lands. The agreement allows for the potential development of the South Block and East Fault Block Resources, should that proceed following the completion of the Expansion Feasibility Study, due by the end of September 2018.The scope of work to be carried out includes waste and ore removal and haulage; equipment supply and maintenance; drilling services; and technical and mine management.This mining services contract is in addition to the contract awarded in April 2018 to the Waanyi Downer joint venture partners for the provision of training services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities to the Century Mine.Waanyi PBC Chairman, Alec Doomadgee, commented on the signing of the agreements:“This is an Australian first – an agreement which genuinely recognises the significant value of Indigenous Peoples. This could only happen with our trusted JV partner in Downer, where we have a genuine relationship built on enduring mutual respect. Our ability to engage in real economic development through the Waanyi Downer JV will contribute significantly to a model of self-determination for the Waanyi People.”New Century Resources Managing Director, Patrick Walta, said: “New Century looks forward to continuing our collaboration and cooperation with the Waanyi People and working with the Waanyi Downer JV.”The WDJV is Chaired by Warren Mundine, former Head of the Prime Minister’s Indigenous Advisory Council. Mr Mundine said: “The Waanyi people are central to this. The focus has always been, and must remain that the operation is on Waanyi country and must benefit the Waanyi People. This is why this arrangement has been so successful to date, and will continue to be, because of this focus. I’d like to think this partnership is unique and a case study for other operations around the country.”last_img read more

EHF CL 20102011 TOP 16 Karabatić and Co surprised by Kadetten

← Previous Story Cancellation epidemic in Montenegro NT, Mladen Rakčević: “Federation destroy our dreams” Next Story → Rene Toft Hansen in THW Kiel from 2012 EHF Champions LeagueKadetten SchaffhausenMontpellier handball The first leg of the Last 16 in the VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League started with a huge surprise: Swiss champions Kadetten Schaffhausen beat the favoured French team Montpellier 31:26 – and could have won with an even bigger margin. In the second match Valladolid dreamed of taking two points from Hamburg until halftime. In the end the Germans won 28:22.HSV Hamburg (GER) vs. Cuatro Rayas Valladolid (ESP) 28:22 (11:15)As expected it was a tough fight for HSV to beat Valladolid in the first leg of the Last 16. And it needed a very loud interruption of coach Martin Schwalb in the halftime break to turn the match in the second half, as the Spaniards surprisingly led 15:11 after 30 minutes. In the end the Germans take a six-goal lead to the return match in Spain next weekend. Top scorers in this high tensioned encounter were Havard Tvedten with eight goals for Valladolid and Pascal Hens and Hans Lindbergh with six goals each for HSV.The 2,610 spectators were surprised when Valladolid took an easy 3:0 lead and extended it to 7:3. First after that Hamburg seemed to wake up and reduced to 7:8 in minute 20. Later clever tactics of Valladolid coach Pastor hit Hamburg hard: Despite twice having one player on the bench due to a suspension, he substituted the goalkeeper for another field player – and Hamburg could not cope with this situation. And as goalkeeper Sierra played strongly, the Spaniards took a well-deserved 15:11 to the dressing rooms.Nothing changed in the first nine minutes after the break as Valladolid still led 19:15. But then it took only nine minutes before Hamburg was in front for the first time ever in this match. Thanks to seven straight goals the Germans did not only equalize at 19:19 but went away to 20:19 and 22:19. The game turned completely, and HSV even missed several chances to give the Spaniards an early knock-out after they had lost their pace.The game was still equal until 25:22 in minute 55, before the Germans scored three more straight goals to the final result – after Asier Antonio had received a red card after three suspensions.Statements after the match:Martin Schwalb, coach Hamburg: “This victory is only the halftime result of the Last 16. And to be honest this result isn’t a good one for us. It won’t be easier in Spain. Today we took too many wrong decisions before the break, in the second half our defence and goalkeeper Johannes Bitter paved the way to the victory. As Valladolid played really strong today, this victory doesn’t mean anything for the second leg.”Juan Carlos Pastor, coach Valladolid: “We deserved a better result. Two facts were decisive in the end: the suspensions against our team and the huge numbers of balls we lost. Now we have to focus on the return leg.”Mathias Flohr, player Hamburg: “It was quite loud in our dressing room during the break, but we were really pushed by our coach’s speech. So we were able to improve. Still this was only part one of the Last 16. The real final will be played in Valladolid.”Havard Tvedten, player Valladolid: “Having a look on the statistics you can see that we made too many mistakes, as we lost too many easy balls against a strong HSV defence. But we still have another 60 minutes to change the result.”Kadetten Schaffhausen (SUI) – Montpellier Agglomeration HB (FRA) 31:26 (17:11)It was one of the biggest sensations ever in Swiss handball history: Kadetten Schaffhausen could reach the Quarterfinals of the VELUX EHF Men’s Champions League for the first time ever. Montpellier can even be lucky that they lost with a five goal difference ‘only’.Like in the last domestic matches before, Montpellier (missing Accambray, Hamed and Di Panda due to injuries) was far away from their normal form – while Schaffhausen showed their match of the year.Kadetten played out of their skins for 50 minutes – and the French team with all their World Champions stood aside. Outstanding player of the match was Kadetten goalkeeper Björgvin Gustvasson who saved 17 shots of Montpellier. Thanks to his performance Schaffhausen had the confidence that Montpellier was missing all over.After 4:4 the Kadetten engine started – and thanks to three goals after the 14:11 they took a well-deserved six goal lead into the second half. And it became even worse for Montpellier: As Schaffhausen showed a brilliant offensive performance, Montpellier became nervous, hectic and with one mistake after the next. Having no real leader on court Montpellier had to face their fate.In minute 45 it looked like a desaster for the French champion as Kadetten had extended the gap to ten goals (26:16) for the first time. This distance remained until the 29:19, then Montpellier started their late catch-up chase. Thanks to a 7:2 series they kept the hopes alive to turn the result on home ground – but will at least need a six goal victory. There is a high risk for them to be eliminated by Kadetten if they play like on Wednesday. Top scorers were Goepfert and Ursic with seven goals each for Schaffhausen and Bojinovic with six goals for Montpellier.Text from: Bjorn Pazen – eurohandball.com read more

DSS attends FCA Innovate

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#UnitedStates, December 14, 2017 – New York – The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the conduct regulator for over 56,000 financial services firms and financial markets in the UK, recently hosted a gathering of financial regulators, financial institutions, and FinTech firms to discuss “FinTech Innovation in Anti-money Laundering & Digital ID”.   The goal for FinTech Innovate, which took place in London from 5 – 6 December 2017, was to “encourage innovation in the interest of consumers”.Domus Semo Sancus (DSS) was one of the FinTech firms that got an invitation to the gathering, and it was represented by its Chairman and CEO, E. Jay Saunders, and Head of Technical Development, Rohit Trivedi. During the two day gathering, attendees discussed how to promote innovation within current AML requirements, combining data protection with AML innovation, unlocking new technologies in AML compliance, transaction monitoring technologies, AML and digital ID considerations in Open Banking, and the FCA’s Regulatory Sandbox.Commenting on DSS’ attendance at the gathering, Saunders stated that “we would like to thank the FCA for inviting us to FCA Innovate.   London is the FinTech capital of the world and it is one of two cities that we’re currently considering for our European headquarters, and so it made sense for us to attend.”   He further expressed that “UK financial firms spend over US$5B per year on regulatory compliance, a market that our award-winning enhanced due diligence software SafetyNet.ai caters to, and it would be remiss of us not to seek to establish a foothold in this market, especially considering our close ties to the UK.” Related Items:last_img read more

Webcams Gone Creative

first_img In an effort to be more accessible, more transparent and more “in your face,” entrepreneurs are looking to live webcams to broadcast their business. Check out how these four companies are leveraging the power of streaming footage–and learn how you can, too.Beachwood BBQThe idea: Live snapshots in 15-minute intervals of the restaurant’s beer menusWithin a year of opening in 2006, Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach, Calif., had upped its beer list significantly. But it became quite a chore for co-founders Gabriel Gordon, 31, and Lena Perelman, 32, to update the list online. The website often went untouched for weeks, Gordon says, which was bad for customers who arrived expecting a specific beer on tap.The byproduct: There are certainly no more disappointed customers, Gordon says. And in addition to increasing page hits, it’s helped boost the restaurant’s sales, too, from $635,000 in 2007 to about $1.4 million last year.The unexpected: Gordon says, “There are people on the East Coast who’ve written saying they check [the Hopcam] every day.”Lisa P. MaxwellThe idea: Live feeds (with chat capabilities) on the company’s 32 employeesAndrew Miller, 42, knew Lisa P. Maxwell’s website needed reviving to fit the Chicago creative marketing agency’s buzzworthy style. Miller says, “The sense of transparency and open honesty really appealed to me.”The byproduct: In the first month after the application went live last fall, there were about six blog posts about it daily, Miller says. The 7-year-old company works to get buzz for its clients, so it’s more convincing “to a client when we can say we’ve also done it for ourselves.”The unexpected: Miller says the innovation did present some issues, including inappropriate messages and personal chat.Sugar Hooker EntertainmentThe idea: Live, weekly TV shows onlineWhen Jerra Spence, 29, launched Sugar Hooker Entertainment in 2004, it quickly transformed into a fully integrated, multiplatform lifestyle brand for teenage girls. She says, “Instead of it being all about commerce, it ended up being all about community.” And that’s where the weekly girl culture variety show came in. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global March 12, 2009 40%of SMBs Plan to Add Customer reviews to their websites this year; 26% plan to incorporate video.(Source: The Kelsey Group)The byproduct: Since launching SHE TV through Stickam.com in October, the site has attracted more than 37,000 weekly viewers. “It’s grown my e-commerce sales significantly,” Spence says–to nearly $2 million last year.The unexpected: With the success of the variety show spawning others, she says, “I think it’s going to end up being an almost 24-hour entertainment channel.”DogtopiaThe idea: Real-time footage of dog day-care franchise facilitiesEver since Amy Nichols, 35, opened her first Dogtopia center in 2002, she wanted customers to be able to easily check on their pooches. “When I had to kennel my dog, I felt really guilty,” she says. So through OnlineDoggy.com, a provider of pet-care webcam systems, Nichols launched the webcam feature in 2005.The byproduct: “Customers love it, and it’s a big selling point,” Nichols says. While the system can be expensive upfront, “it only takes one [happy] customer for the franchisee to realize the value.”The unexpected: The live webcams double as security cameras and training tools. 3 min readcenter_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

6 Ways Gen Z Will Change the Tech World

first_imgNovember 25, 2016 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 5 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. The world of technology is in constant motion. Video games launch every few days, social media apps come out with weekly updates and Apple manages to pump out a new, slimmer phone every September.Our society is inundated with technological progress, and there are no signs that it is slowing down. In this age of fast innovation, everyone is a witness, but certain demographics are more influenced than others by the vast changes our technology is experiencing.Generation Zers are often the first adopters of up-and-coming technology, while also being vocal about the tsunami of new inventions. Here are six reasons why Gen Z has the potential to shape the tech world.1.  Enormous consumption.It’s no secret that today’s society hinges on a consumerist culture that devours products and services of all types. Gen Z stands at the forefront of this mass of hungry buyers.With 35.5 percent of Gen Zers admitting to spending an average of six to 10 hours per day on their mobile devices, it’s no wonder that new technology is developing so quickly. Combine this insatiable appetite for new goods with the tech industry’s propensity for sending forth new gadgets with lightning speed and you have our current situation.Consumer expectancy drives tech companies to constantly innovate, and constant innovation is what makes consumers expectant. It’s a continuous cycle in which each side feeds and shapes the other. As consumption burgeons, tech industries are encouraged to work at even greater speeds.Related: 5 Truths About Gen-Z Businesses That Want a Future Need to Know2. Instant demand.As a society, we have become accustomed to instant gratification. Goods and services are almost immediately available and in constant supply, so we as consumers have grown used to instant demand.Services such as Netflix, Hulu and VIDGO all offer content streaming, but the success of these services is not due solely to the popularity of digital streaming. The instantaneous nature of the new services is also attractive to consumers. In fact, according to Nielsen, 40 percent of Gen Zers plan to drop traditional pay TV service in favor of online-only options.Instant demand can shape the habits of the tech world by further encouraging businesses to act quickly and publicize their newest products as soon as consumers tire of the old ones.Related: Are You Ready for Gen Z?3. Social media influence.In our society, the Internet and social media pervade everything. Anyone can voice their opinions through these media outlets, and their availability only makes them more popular. A quick perusal of the internet and social media will turn up opinions and commentary on virtually any topic people are willing to talk about.Gen Z is especially susceptible to the ideas spread on social media, with 42 percent reporting that what they read on social platforms directly influences how they feel and think.With Gen Z consumers thoroughly discussing everything there is to know about modern technology, tech companies are more driven to innovate and give the people of the internet more to talk about.Related: The Thrill of Working at a Startup Holds Little Appeal for Gen Z4. Independent coders.Most of today’s consumers possess the power to voice their opinions to tech companies, and this can be a powerful way of getting their attention. What is less commonly recognized is the capacity of today’s consumers to create on their own.With a wealth of information easily accessible on the internet, ordinary people willing to learn can follow in the footsteps of tech giants with ingenuity and determination.As an example, many young people have learned how to create smartphone apps and websites, and have succeeded in marketing the products of their labor to much larger, better-equipped tech companies. Although programming remains a largely independent sphere, and does not have a significant presence in the classroom, earlier this year President Obama promised $4 billion of funding toward computer science in U.S. classrooms.These changes, and the presence of websites like code.org, certainly strengthen the ability of individuals to innovate in programming.5. Instant gratification.Most of the technology on the market falls under the category of smartphones, tablets and laptops. The demographic most associated with smartphones and communications technology is Gen Z.No other age group in our society uses social media, the internet and text messaging as frequently as Generation Z. A case study conducted by Tech.co found that 13 percent of all Gen Zers check their phone every few seconds, and as much as 14 percent uses their phones for more than 12 hours a day.It is for these reasons that they are the target market for most tech companies; the whims and desires of Gen Z shape the tech world much more than those of other age groups.As time progresses, tech companies are recognizing the trends in the desires of Gen Z and ultimately becoming more beholden to their cravings for new features, bigger screens, thinner phones and other innovations.6. Generational divide.Opinions on the usefulness and appropriateness of different technologies vary from age group to age group. While older consumers tend to view the new technology with a degree of skepticism, younger generations are much more welcoming of technological innovation.In a study surveying a thousand people between the ages 14 and 69, Gen Zers overwhelmingly answered that 13 was an appropriate age to get a first smartphone; older generations more often suggested that 18 was a better age.The generational divide in opinions on technology’s place in our lives can certainly influence the habits of tech companies.With Gen Z the most frequent consumers of up-and-coming tech, the tech world is more inclined to create new products aimed at the younger generations.last_img read more

Therefore, (Source: PTI) Related News Prime?Minister KP Oli’s government in Nepal dragged itself back last week from the Himalayan abyss towards which it was skipping — but its suicidal urges are certain to cause friends of the country no small amount of concern in months to come This time the government was saved after Pushpa Kumar Dahal the leader of Nepal’s Maoists reneged on a deal that would have meant abandoning the alliance with the Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist) and forming a new government with the Nepali Congress’s Sher Bahadur Deuba Persuaded by influential figures both inside Nepal and in India Dahal came to the conclusion that the Maoists’ best interests would be served by continuing with a Left-led Left-dominated alliance government In time the alliance’s friends have promised Oli will be made to keep his promises to hand over power to the Maoists junior partners in the alliance giving Dahal a chance to become prime minister The Congress is entitled to feel hard done by — it had agreed to a deal that would have given it second place in a Dahal-led government even though it has twice as many seats in Parliament — but is likely consoling itself with the thought that the last word hasn’t been written A blame-game has begun putting fresh strain on India-Nepal ties The Nepal government has cancelled the trip of President Bidhya Devi Bhandari to India and recalled its ambassador in Delhi But for Prime Minister Oli’s government the crisis must be an opportunity for introspection: Instead of laying the foundations for the republic that ought be emerging from the country’s new Constitution it has instead allowed its energies to be frittered away on crisis after crisis He has notably failed to build bridges with the peoples of Nepal’s Terai plains where large swathes of opinion are embittered over what they perceive to be political disenfranchisement in favour of mountain communities Though the violent movement that tore apart the country last year has stilled the government has singularly failed to build a genuine consensus on the way forward Perhaps more important the government’s record on rebuilding infrastructure destroyed in last year’s earthquake has been appalling to the dismay of international donors and the country’s people alike There has been growing anger too over everything from controversial ambassadorial appointments to that old feature of government across the region — corruption India’s considerable equities in this situation are clear: a Nepal torn by ethnic conflict or lapsing back into armed violence will have serious consequences across the border too There’s little doubt though that heavy-handed diplomacy will prove counter productive Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s early efforts to push Nepal into an accomodation with the Terai leadership achieved little other than to harden faultlines within the country and embitter large swathes of public opinion against India Prime Minister Oli’s eleventh-hour reprieve almost certainly will be followed by many more trips to the chopping block New Delhi must allow events to take their course even as it
