Profit system spreads misery: Time to expose capitalism, fight for socialism

first_imgThe time to openly attack and expose capitalism and advocate for its opposite, socialism, has not been this ripe since the Great Depression of the 1930s. The capitalist system is transparently rotten to the core and taking a huge toll on the lives of workers — whether employed or unemployed. The devastation in the ­African-American, Latino/a and other oppressed communities is extreme.There are numerous studies by banks, ruling-class think tanks, universities and so on giving a partial picture of how bad things are. Even in the upper echelons of the rich and their thinkers, there is deep concern about the actual deterioration of economic and social conditions — ­because they fear eventual rebellion.Of course, this anxiety among those who have the real information is not at all reflected in the propaganda machine of big business, which continues to talk up the economy. For example, in the last quarter the economy is supposed to have grown at 3.5 percent. Unemployment, they tell us, is going down and hiring is on the rise.Talking up economy, playing down realityHere are some of the things the publicists of the rich do not dwell upon:Economic inequality is at obscene levels. Mass suffering is increasing as the stock market reaches new highs — despite its ups and downs. Working-class debt of all types goes up as bank profits soar.Trillions of dollars have been poured into the banking system to bail out the rich, even as millions of workers are under water and live from paycheck to paycheck — if they are fortunate enough to get a paycheck.The so-called decline in the unemployment rate is because workers have dropped out of the work force by the millions. Millions more are working at low-wage jobs, are forced to work part time or are working two and three jobs just to make ends meet.All television networks, mainstream newspapers and major politicians of the two big business parties tell us the system is basically sound and “we” are “coming back” from the capitalist crisis of 2007 to 2009. This is a smokescreen designed to conceal the fact that the “comeback” is only for the rich. The masses of people not only have not “come back” but are living with hardship on a daily basis.Half of those in cities are ‘economically insecure’According to a sweeping survey conducted by the Corporation for Enterprise Development, nearly half the people in major U.S. cities are living in a state of economic insecurity.The survey asked: “If you lost your job or had a bad accident, how long would your savings last?”The answers, according to a report in the Sept. 17 New York Times, showed: “Nearly half of all households in major cities don’t have enough money saved to cover essential expenses in an emergency.“For many Americans, living without any cushion can lead to financial disaster. This nerve-racking financial insecurity has come to characterize life in cities across the country.“In Newark, for example, three-quarters of the population does not have enough money to meet basic expenses for three months at the federal poverty level, about $6,000 for a family of four. The absence of assets that can be quickly converted to cash — like stocks, bank accounts or retirement accounts — is why the study calls these people ‘liquid asset poor.’ Other cities where more than half the population has nearly no financial leeway include Detroit at 68 percent, Miami at 67 percent, Cleveland at nearly 65 percent, as well as Laredo, Tex.; Birmingham, Ala.; Milwaukee; Buffalo; and Memphis.”This survey was conducted for the banks. While it undoubtedly understates the situation, the figures show that the profit system is grinding the people down.This survey does not include widespread rural poverty, which in many ways is even worse because support resources are scarcer, transportation costs are higher, and jobs are even harder to get. It is harder to conduct surveys where the population is dispersed.Half can’t raise $400 in an emergencyLast year the Federal Reserve Bank did an extensive study showing that half the population could not come up with $400 to meet an emergency car repair, doctor’s bill, etc., without borrowing money or selling something. (“Report on the Economic Well-Being of U.S. Households in 2013”) The same study showed that 60 percent of the people did not have enough savings to last three months if they lost their job, were injured, etc. This condition was much worst in African-American and Latino/a communities.As for the so-called decline in the unemployment rate, 6.3 million workers have dropped out of the work force, according to official statistics. These are among the “missing workers.” If they were counted, the unemployment rate would be 9.6 percent. Over 90 million people in the U.S. are not in the labor force.So the population has clearly not “come back” from the economic crisis.Studies don’t mention profit system as causeWhat these studies leave out, and what the working class needs to know above all, is that the problem is the capitalist system of wage slavery — and the solution is socialism.For example, student debt now exceeds $1.2 trillion. People in their sixties are still paying on their debt, while the new generation has become indentured to the banks because education is so expensive and the system of student loans is harsh and unjust.The students know this. But they also need to know that it is because of the capitalist system, in which the banks are powerful rulers who dictate legislation, fees, interest rates, penalties, etc. This is the financial core of capitalism — the so-called “free market” profit system. The privately owned, profit-making banks are so powerful that the only way to put an end to their blood sucking is to get rid of them and the profit system itself.It is not only student debt but mortgage debt, auto debt, credit card debt, payday loan debt and many other kinds of robbery of workers’ wages that weigh down the population.Communists must expose the systemThe struggle against capitalism and for socialism requires that communists bring explicit knowledge of the system of exploitation to the workers and the movement. That is essential to the struggle for socialism. Understanding the enemy is a basic necessity for working-class leaders.The truth is that the corporate industrialists, who are financed by the banks and merged with them, oppress and exploit workers for profit. It is a law of the system. The corporations and businesses own the economy — the factories, the hospitals, the big box stores, etc. Workers own only their ability to work and the few personal possessions they have been able to accumulate in a lifetime of labor.And the bosses completely dominate the political system. No promises or urging by capitalist politicians to create jobs, lessen inequality, etc., will turn the bosses around. They are guided by their own profit interests.Workers are dependent on the bosses to live. They must sell their ability to do a job of some type to a capitalist, day after day, month after month, year after year. If the bosses won’t hire them or business falls off, then the workers are out of luck. They work at the will of the owners.Workers get paid just enough to live, or nowadays even less than that. The wealth they create above and beyond the value of their wages goes into the pockets and vaults of the bosses. The more they can get from the workers, the more they can produce with fewer workers, the more profits they make.The masses are suffering from the law of the maximization of profit, which drives capitalism.That is why the bosses put in automation software and robotic production. That is why they outsource jobs to non-union sweatshops in low-wage countries. That is why they won’t pay benefits.They want to lower their labor costs by laying off workers and then extracting more out of the workers who remain on the job.And they can only do this because they own the means of production, transportation and services.Under capitalism, the working class is totally dependent on the bosses. This is why the unemployment rate won’t go down. This is why wages are permanently low. And this is why half the population, and probably more, live in a state of economic insecurity and worse.The fightback against the capitalists and their drive to extract more and more unpaid labor from the workers must be escalated. But in the long run, the working class and the oppressed must eliminate their dependence on the capitalist class by getting rid of them and their system. Only when there is a socialist revolution and workers take over the economy in order to run it for human need and not for profit will we be able to escape the capitalist nightmare.There is a great deal more that communists must explain. The roots of racism, sexism, bigotry and oppression of all types. The persecution and scapegoating of undocumented immigrants. The drive to militarism, intervention and war. The deceptive character of capitalist politics.True class consciousness means understanding the enemy class and all of its treacherous features.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Four Burundian journalists complete 12 months in arbitrary detention

first_img“As these journalists decided not to refer their case to the supreme court after their conviction was confirmed on appeal, they are eligible for a presidential pardon, which we ask Burundi’s recently elected president to grant,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.  “The release of these reporters, who did absolutely nothing wrong, would send a conciliatory message to the media and journalists who have been subjected to very intense persecution since the 2015 crisis. Keeping them in prison, on the other hand, would mean one can still be jailed just for reporting the news. After five long years of predatory practices towards the media, the continuation of this policy would send a terrible signal to the Burundian journalists who are still courageously trying to do their job.” During this year’s presidential election campaign, a ruling party parliamentarian reacted to an article he did not like by threatening to “crush the heads” of Iwacu’s journalists, while the president’s spokesman called them a “virus.” The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa As far as Burundi’s reporters recall, none of its journalists have ever spent so long in detention in the past. The fact that Christine Kamikazi, Agnès Ndirubusa, Térence Mpozenzi and Egide Harerimana will complete their first 12 months in prison tomorrow is therefore not just arbitrary but also unprecedented. Organisation Burundian appeal court upholds prison sentences for four journalists Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on Burundi’s new president to pardon four journalists who have been detained arbitrarily for the past year and who are victims of the country’s draconian curbs on the freedom to inform. to go further Employed by Iwacu, one of Burundi’s last bastions of freely reported news, they were arrested on 22 October 2019 after travelling to the northwest of the country to cover an incursion by a group of Burundian rebels based in the east of the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo.

Concern about death threats against head of news photographers’ association

first_img Organisation RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia ColombiaAmericas May 13, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information March 7, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Concern about death threats against head of news photographers’ association Reporters Without Borders today voiced concern about a series of death threats received by Gladys Barajas, the head of the Circle of Colombian News Photographers (CRGC), and urged the authorities to ensure her safety.”The messages received by Gladys Barajas constitute a new offensive by the enemies of press freedom, who no longer just target journalists but also their defenders,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to interior minister Fernando Londonno. “We urge you to do everything possible to ensure her safety and thereby prevent further deterioration in the already critical situation of the press.”Barajas announced her intention of leaving Colombia on 3 March, after receiving an e-mail message the previous evening warning her that she had seven days to live and that her silence “would no longer suffice” to save her life. Previously, On 17 and 25 February, she received anonymous letters saying that “the time of defending journalists is over” and pronouncing “death to trade unionists and the defenders of press freedom.” The origin of these threats is unknown.The CRGC had issued a press release on 13 February protesting against the beating received by Herminso Ruiz, a photographer with the weekly El Espectador, at the hands of police officers when he was covering the attack on the El Nogal night club on 7 February. The release also mentioned the cases of Wilson Vizcaino of the daily El Tiempo and Diego Cauca of the daily Portafolio, who were also recently harassed by police. The CRGC also took part in a demonstration by journalists on 24 January to demand the release of two foreign reporters who were abducted by guerrillas of the National Liberation Army (ELN) in Arauca department.Attacks on press freedom are taking an increasing toll on journalists in Colombia. According to information compiled by Reporters Without Borders, five journalists and media assistants were killed in 2002, about 60 were abducted, threatened or physically attacked, more than 20 were forced to flee the country or the region where they lived and worked, and there were eight attacks or attempted attacks with explosives. In January of 2003, eight journalists were kidnapped by illegal armed groups and seven others were obstructed in the course of their work by the police or other authorities.

Credit: Lance Hayashida/CaltechA team of physicists led by Caltech’s David Hsieh has discovered an unusual form of matter—not a conventional metal, insulator, or magnet, for example, but something entirely different. This phase, characterized by an unusual ordering of electrons, offers possibilities for new electronic device functionalities and could hold the solution to a long-standing mystery in condensed matter physics having to do with high-temperature superconductivity—the ability for some materials to conduct electricity without resistance, even at “high” temperatures approaching –100 degrees Celsius.“The discovery of this phase was completely unexpected and not based on any prior theoretical prediction,” says Hsieh, an assistant professor of physics, who previously was on a team that discovered another form of matter called a topological insulator. “The whole field of electronic materials is driven by the discovery of new phases, which provide the playgrounds in which to search for new macroscopic physical properties.”Artist’s rendition of spatially segregated domains of multipolar order in the Sr2IrO4 crystal. The orientation of the multipolar order in each domain is depicted by the multi-lobed object. Credit: Liuyan ZhaoHsieh and his colleagues describe their findings in the November issue of Nature Physics, and the paper is now available online. Liuyan Zhao, a postdoctoral scholar in Hsieh’s group, is lead author on the paper.The physicists made the discovery while testing a laser-based measurement technique that they recently developed to look for what is called multipolar order. To understand multipolar order, first consider a crystal with electrons moving around throughout its interior. Under certain conditions, it can be energetically favorable for these electrical charges to pile up in a regular, repeating fashion inside the crystal, forming what is called a charge-ordered phase. The building block of this type of order, namely charge, is simply a scalar quantity—that is, it can be described by just a numerical value, or magnitude.In addition to charge, electrons also have a degree of freedom known as spin. When spins line up parallel to each other (in a crystal, for example), they form a ferromagnet—the type of magnet you might use on your refrigerator and that is used in the strip on your credit card. Because spin has both a magnitude and a direction, a spin-ordered phase is described by a vector.Over the last several decades, physicists have developed sophisticated techniques to look for both of these types of phases. But what if the electrons in a material are not ordered in one of those ways? In other words, what if the order were described not by a scalar or vector but by something with more dimensionality, like a matrix? This could happen, for example, if the building block of the ordered phase was a pair of oppositely pointing spins—one pointing north and one pointing south—described by what is known as a magnetic quadrupole. Such examples of multipolar-ordered phases of matter are difficult to detect using traditional experimental probes.As it turns out, the new phase that the Hsieh group identified is precisely this type of multipolar order.To detect multipolar order, Hsieh’s group utilized an effect called optical harmonic generation, which is exhibited by all solids but is usually extremely weak. Typically, when you look at an object illuminated by a single frequency of light, all of the light that you see reflected from the object is at that frequency. When you shine a red laser pointer at a wall, for example, your eye detects red light. However, for all materials, there is a tiny amount of light bouncing off at integer multiples of the incoming frequency. So with the red laser pointer, there will also be some blue light bouncing off of the wall. You just do not see it because it is such a small percentage of the total light. These multiples are called optical harmonics.The Hsieh group’s experiment exploited the fact that changes in the symmetry of a crystal will affect the strength of each harmonic differently. Since the emergence of multipolar ordering changes the symmetry of the crystal in a very specific way—a way that can be largely invisible to conventional probes—their idea was that the optical harmonic response of a crystal could serve as a fingerprint of multipolar order.“We found that light reflected at the second harmonic frequency revealed a set of symmetries completely different from those of the known crystal structure, whereas this effect was completely absent for light reflected at the fundamental frequency,” says Hsieh. “This is a very clear fingerprint of a specific type of multipolar order.”The specific compound that the researchers studied was strontium-iridium oxide (Sr2IrO4), a member of the class of synthetic compounds broadly known as iridates. Over the past few years, there has been a lot of interest in Sr2IrO4 owing to certain features it shares with copper-oxide-based compounds, or cuprates. Cuprates are the only family of materials known to exhibit superconductivity at high temperatures—exceeding 100 Kelvin (–173 degrees Celsius). Structurally, iridates and cuprates are very similar. And like the cuprates, iridates are electrically insulating antiferromagnets that become increasingly metallic as electrons are added to or removed from them through a process called chemical doping. A high enough level of doping will transform cuprates into high-temperature superconductors, and as cuprates evolve from being insulators to superconductors, they first transition through a mysterious phase known as the pseudogap, where an additional amount of energy is required to strip electrons out of the material. For decades, scientists have debated the origin of the pseudogap and its relationship to superconductivity—whether it is a necessary precursor to superconductivity or a competing phase with a distinct set of symmetry properties. If that relationship were better understood, scientists believe, it might be possible to develop materials that superconduct at temperatures approaching room temperature.Recently, a pseudogap phase also has been observed in Sr2IrO4—and Hsieh’s group has found that the multipolar order they have identified exists over a doping and temperature window where the pseudogap is present. The researchers are still investigating whether the two overlap exactly, but Hsieh says the work suggests a connection between multipolar order and pseudogap phenomena.“There is also very recent work by other groups showing signatures of superconductivity in Sr2IrO4 of the same variety as that found in cuprates,” he says. “Given the highly similar phenomenology of the iridates and cuprates, perhaps iridates will help us resolve some of the longstanding debates about the relationship between the pseudogap and high-temperature superconductivity.”Hsieh says the finding emphasizes the importance of developing new tools to try to uncover new phenomena. “This was really enabled by a simultaneous technique advancement,” he says.Furthermore, he adds, these multipolar orders might exist in many more materials. “Sr2IrO4 is the first thing we looked at, so these orders could very well be lurking in other materials as well, and that’s exactly what we are pursuing next.”Additional Caltech authors on the paper, “Evidence of an odd-parity hidden order in a spin–orbit coupled correlated iridate,” are Darius H. Torchinsky, Hao Chu, and Vsevolod Ivanov. Ron Lifshitz of Tel Aviv University, Rebecca Flint of Iowa State University, and Tongfei Qi and Gang Cao of the University of Kentucky are also coauthors. The work was supported by funding from the Army Research Office, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter, an NSF Physics Frontiers Center with support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.

The bench came down heavily on Patil the moment the hearing began, citing a shoddily drafted petition. “You say you are a doctorate in criminology but please show us a single paragraph drafted by you. Your entire petition is based on extracting paragraphs from a letter,” the bench observed. The court added that the contents of Patil’s petition were primarily based on the letter former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh has written to the Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray, making serious allegations of corruption against the State Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. “What is your contribution[ to the petition]? What are your original pleadings? What is your locus?” the bench asked the petitioner. Justice Shinde then asked why was the extraordinary jurisdiction of the Court invoked, to which Patil responded that she had not invoked the court’s extraordinary jurisdiction, only to realise her folly a couple of seconds later. Regarding her locus, Patil said she had first approached the police with a complaint but no action was taken. Moreover, she was an intervenor when Singh approached the Supreme Court. The court then asked Advocate General Ashutosh Kumbhakoni the status of Patil’s complaint. “The complaint is pending, but it’s a very shoddily drafted petition. Even the font size is different. I want to read a few Supreme Court judgements on this aspect.” The bench sought to know if other petitions are pending on the same issue, to which the AG informed the court that a division bench led by Chief Justice Dipankar Datta will hear Param Bir Singh’s PIL tomorrow. “There are other petitions, as well,” the AG submitted. The bench then suggested that the AG may apply for clubbing of the other pending writ petitions to avoid contradictory orders and posted the matter for hearing, on Thursday. Background Patil approached the Bombay High Court on March 23, seeking an investigation into Param Bir Singh’s letter by CBI, ED or any other independent agency. She has said that the investigation should also be conducted against Param Bir Singh, as well, considering he was the Mumbai Police Commissioner for a year but failed to bring such a heinous crime forward. Two other similar petitions are pending for an independent probe into the corruption and extortion allegation. One of them, a Pune based activist has sought an FIR And court-monitored probe against Maharashtra’s Chief Minister, Home Minister and Param Bir Singh.Next Storylast_img read more

Many afternoons, we walked them and trained them to set before we turned them out of the night.”Thompson spoke in “plurals” because she said, raising calves involves the entire family and, because she raised “calves.”“We worked as a family but I had much of the responsibility and I wanted that responsibility because I loved everything about raising and showing calves,” she said. “I showed a lot of steers and accepted that they were being raised for the market.”Thompson always had her eye on the prize – that of Grand Champion  — and, even when she came in last in a couple of shows, she was not discouraged.“I wanted to do better and I knew I could do better,” she said. “I would just have to work harder.”And work harder she did — and longer.“Cows went on our vacations,” Thompson said, laughing. “We planned our vacations around calf shows.”Thompson showed calves that had been purchased in Oklahoma and Texas but it was a $900 Alabama steer that won the title of the Alabama State Grand Champion.“Fred was the cheapest steer that I ever showed,” Thompson said. “He wasn’t much in the green stage but my dad had an eye for a steer’s potential.”The Waters family had moved to Henry County and that’s where Thompson’s dream of a championship came true.The year was 1995 and Thompson was 15 years old. She had placed second to her friend at several shows but her hopes were high at the state show in Montgomery.“I didn’t even think the judge had looked at my steer,” she said, with a smile. “When he started to tell about the steer he had picked, he said that this steer looked like a big teddy bear that you wanted to hug. He was talking about Fred.”Thompson said she cried and kissed her steer and cried some more.“In that one moment all of the hard work paid off,” she said.Thompson won many awards in showmanship and with other steers but nothing equaled the exhilaration and satisfaction of a job well done, like that one crowning moment.Her sister, Jennifer, won the Alabama State Steer Show in 2000 and brought the state title to Pike County for the first time.Thompson said she would not take anything for the time she and her family shared while raising and showing calves. And, if she could, she would be back in the ring today. But, as it is, she is grooming her two-year-old son to follow in her footsteps and his baby sister is waiting in the wings. “This year, we have eight young people from around the county that will be competing and we hope that everyone will stay and enjoy the 70th Annual Pike County Steer and Heifer Show,” Lyons said.Not only will Ammie Waters Thompson be there. She will be there with bells on.Thompson began showing calves when she was eight years old and, if she had her druthers, she would be in the ring when the show turns 70.“I have loved cows for as long as I can remember,” Thompson said. “We lived near Michael Goodson and his family raised show calves and I fell in love with them. My love blossomed and I’ve loved cows ever since. I still love cows.” Email the author Published 6:45 am Thursday, February 16, 2012 Any year or event that ends in zero is considered a milestone. So, The Pike County Steer and Heifer Show will reach a milestone on Saturday, March 3 with its 70th annual steer and heifer show.Grant Lyons, Pike County Extension coordinator, said that, over the 70 years, hundreds of young people have competed for the titles of Grand and Reserve Champion and for showmanship awards.“Not all of the competitors took home awards but they were all winners,” Lyons said.Ammie Waters Thompson with Sam, the fist steer she showed at her first Pike County Steer Show in 1989. (Submitted Photo) The time and effort invested in raising a show steer or heifer is tremendous and takes a year round commitment, not only from the young people but also from their families.“Raising show calves involves the entire family and a total commitment,” Lyons said. “At the 70th Annual Pike County Steer and Heifer Show on March 3, we want to recognize all of those who have been involved in the show over the years. So, everyone who has been involved in any capacity is invited to come and celebrate 70 years with us.”The pre-show hamburger supper will be at 5 p.m. and the calf show will begin at 6 p.m. The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Latest Stories Around the WebDoctor: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Health VideosIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

LA County leads US in COVID-19 cases, Florida sees highest 1-day increase

first_imgMyriam Borzee/iStockBy MATT GUTMAN and EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(LOS ANGELES) — Los Angeles County has more cases of coronavirus than any other county in the U.S. as of Wednesday morning.LA has over 88,500 residents diagnosed with COVID-19, followed by 87,700 cases in Cook County, Illinois, and 64,000 cases in Queens in New York City.For comparison, the entire state of Florida has 109,000 cases as of Wednesday morning — even with its highest one-day increase of 5,500.LA County has about 10 million residents while Florida’s population stands at roughly 21.4 million.In LA County’s fight against the virus, Los Angeles International Airport is implementing thermal camera technology and city officials are bringing mobile testing to about 25,000 people at 15 Los Angeles public housing developments.LA County is continuing to reopen by phases. Among the open facilities are: bars, wineries, public pools, beaches and piers, day camps, gyms and museums.Concert venues, nightclubs, youth sports leagues and movie theaters are among the businesses still closed.On Monday, the director of LA County’s Department of Public Health, Dr. Barbara Ferrer, revealed that she’s received death threats due to the pandemic.Ferrer said she was holding a COVID-19 briefing on Facebook Live in May “when someone very casually suggested that I should be shot.”“I didn’t immediately see the message, but my husband did, my children did, and so did my colleagues,” Ferrer said in a statement.“One reason I handle these briefings myself is to shield the extraordinary team at L.A. County Public Health from these attacks which have been going on, via emails, public postings, and letters — since March,” she continued. “It is deeply worrisome to imagine that our hardworking infectious disease physicians, nurses, epidemiologists and environmental health specialists or any of our other team members would have to face this level of hatred.”“Our job and our calling is to keep as many people as safe as possible during this pandemic,” Ferrer said. “While frustration boils over in our communities as people are done with this virus, this virus is not done with us.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_imgInternational newsOn 25 May 2004 in Personnel Today This week’s International newsUS suds giant pampers loyal staff with free holidays US household products giant Procter & Gamble is rewarding virtually allof its 90,000 employees with two free days off. The makers of Pampers nappiesand Clairol haircare products said it will provide the one-off benefit to allof its staff worldwide, giving them the choice of taking time off or the cashequivalent. Each year the company gives special awards of 50 shares of stock to2,000 employees. This year, it will increase that number to 3,000 employees.Chairman and chief executive Alan Lafley announced the benefits last week.”We’ve never before offered a company performance award such as this, butyou’ve earned it,” he said. UK bucks trend as EU pay rises slow down The rate of pay increases across the EU fell between 2002 and 2003, althoughthe UK bucked the trend, according to a report from the European Foundation forthe Improvement of Living and Working Conditions. In the EU and Norway averagecollectively agreed pay increases were 3.1 per cent in 2003, down from 3.5 percent the previous year. The UK collectively agreed pay increases of 3.2 percent on average in 2003, up from 3 per cent the previous year – higher than theaverage increases in other large EU countries such as Germany (2.5 per cent)and Italy (2.2 per cent).  www.eiro.eurofound.eu.int/2004/03/update/tn0403103u.htmlAccidents will happen – especially in Estonia While the UK’s record on serious accidents at work is getting worse, thefactories, building sites and offices of some eastern European countriesjoining the EU are becoming safer – except in Estonia. According to statisticalagency Eurostat, assuming serious accidents per 1,000 workers in 1998 are ratedat 100, the UK’s index for 2001 rose to 110, (although it fell to 92 for fatalaccidents). By contrast, some major improvements were made in Hungary, (whoseindex fell to 86 for serious accidents in 2001), and in Poland (78), Lithuania(85), Slovakia (84), and the Czech Republic (91). However, some worryingproblems were identified in Estonia, (up to 132), Cyprus (112) and Latvia(116). Protests grow as US catches anti-offshoring bug Trade unions in Europe have long been attacking moves by employers tooffshore work to lower-cost countries, and now similar grassroots initiativesare under way in the US, writes Mark Childs. An article in national dailynewspaper USA Today said corporate stock purchases, coffee-shop planningmeetings and picket lines are some of the tactics workers are using tocapitalise on the anti-offshoring sentiment. A group in Minnesota has formed anetwork of 1,000 people to contact federal and state legislators aboutoffshoring issues, and plans to boycott a company which has outsourced jobsabroad. Other tactics include buying stock in companies that outsource in a bidto influence board meetings. Comments are closed.

Seeing green: Land rush is on in latest states to legalize cannabis

first_img Tags Share via Shortlink (iStock)In November, voters in Arizona, New Jersey, Montana and South Dakota approved recreational cannabis use in their states.Those votes have opened the door for the sort of land rushes seen in other states that have legalized marijuana, with cannabis companies searching for retail and commercial space, according to the Wall Street Journal.It can be tough for pot purveyors seeking space to operate: Their choices are often limited by strict regulations on cannabis sales and cultivation, and landlords may hesitate to work with them because marijuana remains illegal at the federal level.For those companies, that means paying a premium to rent or buy. Anthony Coniglio’s company NewLake Capital Partners Inc. owns 19 properties in eight states leased to cannabis businesses.“It’s like holding the winning lottery ticket,” Coniglio said, regarding landlords who are willing to rent to those tenants.Massachusetts-based Curaleaf Holdings, which operates retail stores in 23 states, currently sells medical marijuana in New Jersey, which recently legalized cannabis but has not yet finalized a framework for distribution. The company bought its second dispensary in the state last year and reportedly paid about twice as much as the property would cost for other uses.“People know they can charge cannabis an absurd amount,” said Patrik Jonsson, Curaleaf’s regional president for the northeast. “It’s the new norm.” [WSJ] — Dennis Lynch cannabisCommercial Real Estate Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinklast_img read more

Student in drink- driving

first_imgAn Exeter student was arrested by police and held in custody overnight after a car crash in St Clement’s Street last week.According to other Exeter students, the third-year had earlier been thrown out of the college on 27 October by the porter, after littering the lodge with food and causing excessive noise before driving off in a car with a friend. It is not know whether it was he or his friend who was driving, or who was at the wheel at the time of the crash. The Exeter third-year has refused to comment on the issue. One student, who wished to remain anonymous, said, “Him and someone else went driving, and crashed the car. They were both arrested and spent the night in the cells.”“I’m not sure which one of them was driving at the time.”The student was of the opinion that they would both have been over the limit. Subsequently the police have confirmed that both students in the car were over the legal limit when arrested.The student, who wished not to be named, has been disciplined a number of times in the past, including being thrown out of three balls. He was made  to sign a contract by College authorities promising not to disturb college life any further after being expelled from an Exeter ball.“He got kicked out of 3 college balls: our own, Lincoln and Hilda’s,” said another Exeter student. “There was an incident last year in which the police were called to the college’s accommodation on Iffley Road to prevent him from drink driving then.”Another student, who also wished to remain anonymous, criticised the college for not acting more harshly with him.“He has totally deserved any punishment doled out by college. In fact, I would go as far as to tell you that the punishment is sending down, and even this is not far enough in my opinion. “He deserves everything he gets, and I hope he is sent to prison. It is a disgustingly selfish and vile action to drink drive, where not only your own life is at danger, but those of others around you,” they said.Thames Valley Police confirmed that police had been called to an incident on the morning of the 27 October in which a car had crashed into a barrier outside The Duke pub on St Clement’s, though they refused to confirm the names of those arrested.Both occupants of the vehicle were arrested for being above the legal alcohol limit and for failing to stop at a road accident. One was also arrested for using the vehicle without third-party insurance.They were released on police bail, under instruction to return to the station on 30 November to be either formally charged or acquitted. Exeter College refused to make a comment on the case, saying it was an internal disciplinary matter.According to a survey carried out in August by the charity Brake, almost one in five drivers from the ages 17-18 has admitted to drink driving. Jools Townsend, head of education at Brake, said “Every day young drivers kill and seriously injure themselves and others through a deadly combination of inexperience and taking risks like drink driving.” Brake have called for targeted road-side testing of drivers’ alcohol levels, in order to reduce drink-driving related deaths by youngsters.Louise Randall, OUSU Vice-President for Welfare, said that drink driving was extremely irresponsible as it put other road users in danger.“Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is extremely dangerous and potentially lethal not only to the driver but to those around them.”“We urge students to drink responsibly and never to take the wheel whilst under the influence. Nominate a designated driver, and don’t be afraid to take car keys off those who have been drinking. Don’t pay the price for taking risks, take a taxi,” she said.last_img read more

Employment law: a balancing act

first_imgEmployment law is predominantly concerned with protecting the rights of wor-kers but it also recognises that businesses require flexibility from their employees. When it comes to changing terms and conditions of employment – and where there is a pressing need for business change – the law will not simply allow the employee to stay on their existing contractual terms forever. The need to allow changes to be made while protecting an employee’s contractual rights is seen as a “balancing act” by the courts. How this process works in action has been helpfully re-stated in the recent case of Scott & Co v Andrew Richardson. The case concerns a change to shift patterns. Scott & Co runs a debt recovery service in Scotland. Richardson was employed to collect debts by Scott & Co. He acted as a door-to-door operative (known as a sheriff officer) and he worked standard daytime hours, with occasional overtime in the evenings when required. A change in the way that debt recovery was carried out in Scotland encouraged Scott & Co to change employee hours in order to move onto a shift system. An emphasis on negotiating repayment, rather than seizing goods, meant that some employees regularly had to work an evening shift rather than doing overtime. Richardson objected to this change.The perils of unilateral change UK employment law doesn’t allow an employer unilaterally to impose changes to an employee’s contract of employment. Normally, any change requires the employee’s agreement. To secure this agreement, employers will normally consult with their employees over suggested changes.Where all else fails and a reluctant minority refuse to agree to a change, an employer can only implement the change by dismissing those employees and offering re-engagement on the new, amended terms. Of course, this approach carries inherent risks. Employees have no obligation to accept; they can choose to claim unfair dismissal instead and an employment tribunal will then have to rule on whether the dismissal, based on the employer’s reasons and approach, was fair or unfair. Such was the case with Richardson. In his view, the move by Scott & Co to a shift system was an excuse not to pay overtime. Although his colleagues largely accepted the proposed change, Richardson held out against it and was ultimately dismissed. The tribunal’s decisionAt the initial tribunal hearing, Richardson succeeded in his claim for unfair dismissal. Scott & Co said that there was a sound business reason for dismissal. Legally this fell into the fair category for dismissal known as “some other substantial reason”, a catch-all provision normally invoked where there is a genuine business need to implement a change that might otherwise result in an unfair dismissal. However, the tribunal disagreed, based on the circumstances. It found that there was no fair reason for dismissal. The employment appeal tribunal overturned that decision and re-emphasised the degree of discretion that an employer has when seeking to re-organise its business. It found that unless a decision to change terms and conditions is “trivial” or “whimsical”, an employer should normally be able to pass the initial stage of proving that there was a potentially fair reason for dismissal.When proving that potentially fair reason, an employer’s commercial discretion over its own business practices will be respected. It must be appreciated, however, that having made out a potentially fair reason for dismissal, an employer must go on to demonstrate that it acted fairly in all circumstances. This is a “balancing act” between the interests of employer and employee. The appeal tribunal went on to consider the factors from previous case law, which indicate whether a dismissal is reasonable in these circumstances. These are likely to include:the benefit to the employer from the changes;whether the dismissal could be considered reasonable in light of the number of employees who accepted the changes;(where relevant) whether a trade union accepted that the change was reasonable and was ready to recommend it. On this point the appeal tribunal decided that Richardson’s case should be sent back to another tribunal for reconsideration. As the consultation process adopted by Scott & Co had convinced Richardson’s colleagues to accept the change, then applying the guidance from the appeal tribunal, it appears that he might have some difficulty in winning his claim the second time around!Practical stepsIn light of the indications given above, how will an employer normally implement contentious changes to terms and conditions of employment? Normally, an employer will engage in a process of consultation to sell the change to employees. This consultation will commonly take place with employees and/or their representatives, allowing the sound business reasons for change to be presented to the workforce and any incentives offered for the change to be explained. Only when consultation is exhausted without full agreement would the remaining employees have their existing contracts terminated upon notice with an offer of re-engagement upon the revised terms.

Malaria: Down but not out

first_imgMalaria is like a metal spring compressed by the massive effort to suppress it, one analyst said. Authorities have to finish the fight against the disease or it will rapidly uncoil and roar back, as it did after the failure of 1950s-era eradication efforts.“If we relax our efforts, even for a moment, this thing will come back and be worse than before,” said Sonia Shah, a science journalist and author of the 2010 history of malaria, “The Fever.”Shah acknowledged that malaria is a difficult opponent, partly because it is so widespread — with 207,000,000 cases in 2012 and 627,000 deaths — partly because its biggest impact is in parts of the world with few resources, partly because traditional healers are often the first to treat sufferers, and partly because many people in malaria-endemic countries have already gotten the disease so often they can be blasé about it.Shah compared it to driving a car in this country: Many people die in car accidents, but people drive so much that most don’t worry about the dangers when they hop behind the wheel. That perception that malaria is low-risk is partly due to familiarity, but also because many adults who have had repeated cases have developed some immunity to it, so their cases are relatively mild.Shah was part of a panel that discussed malaria on Monday at the Barker Center’s Fong Auditorium. The event, “In Our Blood: Challenging Millennials to End Malaria,” was sponsored by the Harvard Undergraduate Global Health Forum, along with the Harvard Defeating Malaria Initiative. It featured Shah, Kate Otto, a global health consultant with the World Bank, and John Brownstein, associate professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Harvard-affiliated Boston Children’s Hospital. It was moderated by Maggie Koerth-Baker, a science journalist and Nieman Fellow at Harvard this year.Panelists questioned whether today’s strategies are most effective at the community level, or whether the success of certain strategies in attracting funding may make them more popular than others that might be just as effective. Shah said that the final eradication of malaria in the United States is often attributed to the discovery of the pesticide DDT, but malaria here was actually on the decline before DDT came on the scene. It was put on the run by practices such as draining wetlands, upgrading housing, and paving dirt roads, where standing water provided potential breeding sites for mosquitoes.Panelists said institutional failures have hampered efforts to fight malaria and resulted in rising drug resistance in the parasite, widespread counterfeiting of malaria drugs, and insecticide resistance in the mosquito that delivers the parasite. They also said solutions must reflect local concerns and values to be effective.But there have been positive developments. Recent renewed efforts have pumped billions of dollars into the fight against the disease at a time when technology has provided what Otto called “one of the greatest discoveries of the 21st century” — the cell phone. The communications revolution in the developing world has led to drastic changes in just the past five years, Otto said, providing new ways to communicate, to reach patients and providers, to order supplies, and to perform other functions that previously weren’t easily possible. Today, Otto said, she can reach someone in a rural Ethiopian village as quickly as she can a colleague down the hall, a change that provides immense opportunity.Otto urged students eager to join the fight against disease to consider whether their efforts are directed in areas that are truly useful, or instead are in areas that are appealing because they offer a quick result.“When we aim to do good in the world, we look at what it is that we can do and achieve rather than what is really needed,” Otto said. “We’re encouraged to move quickly and think quickly, to move at the speed of technology.”Brownstein added, however, that technological innovations are still needed in public health and that there are many areas where a small improvement can make a difference, even through “a little chunk at a time.”Bianca Mulaney, co-president of Harvard Undergraduate Global Health Forum, said she hoped the event would provide insights beyond just malaria.“We’re hoping this discussion is not relevant only to malaria but to all global health issues,” Mulaney said.last_img read more

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton Will Launch Tour in September 2016

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s blockbuster Broadway musical Hamilton will launch its first national tour in Chicago. The production will kick off with an open-ended run at the Windy City’s newly named PrivateBank Theatre beginning September 27, 2016. According to The Chicago Tribune, a second production will launch on the West Coast before continuing to cities across the country. Casting and further dates for the tour have not yet been announced.”I’m going to bring to Chicago a production of the same size, volume and quality as the one at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York,” lead producer Jeffrey Seller told the Tribune. “Chicago is the biggest theater market after New York. I wanted to sit down in a city that could support the show for a long term.”Directed by Thomas Kail and featuring a book, music and lyrics by Miranda, Hamilton is inspired by the book Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. The new musical follows the scrappy young immigrant who forever changed America, from bastard orphan to Washington’s right hand man, rebel to war hero, loving husband caught in the country’s first sex scandal to Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Hamilton and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe, Aaron Burr, all make appearances in the tuner about America’s fiery past.Starring Miranda in the title role, the Broadway cast of Hamilton includes Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton, Anthony Ramos as John Laurens and Phillip Hamilton, Daveed Diggs as Marquis De Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson and Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler. Javier Muñoz plays Hamilton at select performances. Lin-Manuel Miranda Star Files View Comments read more

Bountiful blueberries

first_imgBy Faith PeppersUniversity of Georgia A late spring freeze followed by heavy rains were a blessing for some Georgia blueberry growers. But they brought more hard work to others, according to University of Georgia experts.The heavy rains delayed harvest of the southeast Georgia crop, causing some early concerns about highbush berry quality. “We had to work harder to make grade due to the heavy rains this spring, but it’s turning out to be good year for rabbiteye growers,” said UGA Cooperative Extension blueberry agent Danny Stanaland.“We grow two blueberry crops in Georgia – highbush and rabbiteye,” Stanaland went on to explain. The highbush crop in some areas of southeast Georgia, which is the state’s major commercial production area, “was hit hard by the late freeze and will produce only about 35 to 50 percent of the crop.” Robust rabbiteye cropFortunately, blueberry fans all over Georgia can expect a bumper crop from the rabbiteye variety. “It will be the largest crop of rabbiteye blueberries we’ve had in several years,” Stanaland said. That’s especially good news for Georgia’s 300 blueberry growers. The majority of the crop is rabbiteye variety, and about 10 percent of the total crop is highbush variety. “The highbush variety blooms and fruits early, making it more susceptible to the low temperatures and rain,” Stanaland said. “But, May 20 we finished harvesting highbush. That crop is gone.” Growers are now harvesting rabbiteye berries in three phases. “The early rabbiteye berries were wet and had some grading issues because it required more selective picking to get the good berries,” he said. “Now that it’s dry again, it’s much easier to harvest and grade, and fruit quality is very positive. We have the heaviest rabbiteye fruit set we’ve had in years. So, while we were short on highbush berries, we are going to be long on rabbiteye.”Pick-your-own timeIn the northern half of the state, where most blueberry operations are pick-your-own, growers are reporting larger-than-normal berries and an abundant crop, just in time for many markets to open this weekend. In 2008, Georgia blueberry growers harvested more than 14,000 acres of blueberries with an off-the-farm value of close to $61 million dollars, slightly above the five-year average. This year, growers expect to harvest between 12,000 and 14,000 acres, but that figure could surge as high as 15,000 to 20,000 acres, according to Stanaland and county Extension agent reports. About 75 percent of those acres are in southeast Georgia. Prices are holding steady in spite of the abundance of available fruit this year, which usually drives prices down. Growers are getting about $14 per flat — or $1.40 per pound — for fresh berries, only a shade lower than last year’s price.last_img read more

U.S. Reserves Right To Meet Cyber Attack With Force

first_imgBy Dialogo November 17, 2011 The United States reserves the right to retaliate with military force against a cyber attack and is working to sharpen its ability to track down the source of any breach, the Pentagon said in a report made public on Tuesday, November 15. The 12-page report to Congress, mandated by the 2011 Defense Authorization Act, was one of the clearest statements to date of U.S. cybersecurity policy and the role of the military in the event of a computer-borne attack. “When warranted, we will respond to hostile attacks in cyberspace as we would to any other threat to our country,” the report said. “We reserve the right to use all necessary means – diplomatic, informational, military and economic – to defend our nation, our allies, our partners and our interests.” Hostile acts, it said, could include “significant cyber attacks directed against the U.S. economy, government or military” and the response could use electronic means or more conventional military options. Cyberspace is a particularly challenging domain for the Pentagon. Defense Department employees operate more than 15,000 computer networks with 7 million computers at hundreds of locations around the world. Their networks are probed millions of times a day and penetrations have caused the loss of thousands of files. The report said the Defense Department was attempting to deter aggression in cyberspace by developing effective defenses that prevent adversaries from achieving their objectives and by finding ways to make attackers pay a price for their actions. “Should the ‘deny objectives’ element of deterrence not prove adequate,” the report said, “DoD (Department of Defense) maintains, and is further developing, the ability to respond militarily in cyberspace and in other domains.” Key to a military response is being able to quickly identify the source of an attack, particularly challenging due to the anonymous nature of the Internet, the report said. In an effort to crack that problem, the Pentagon is supporting research focusing on tracing the physical source of an attack and using behavior-based algorithms to assess the likely identity of an attacker, the report said. U.S. security agencies also are grooming a cadre of highly skilled cyber forensics experts and are working with international partners to share information in a timely manner about cyber threats, including malicious code and the people behind it, it said. Before moving to offensive action, the United States would exhaust all other options, weigh the risk of action against the cost of inaction and “act in a way that reflects our values and strengthens our legitimacy, seeking broad international support wherever possible,” the report said.last_img read more

Costa Rican authorities arrest Augustin Reyes Aragon, alleged leader of ‘Los Tarzanes’

first_img Reyes Aragon has been wanted for drug trafficking since 2010, when Nicaraguan police issued an arrest warrant for him. The OIJ had been investigating the activities of Reyes Aragon and Los Tarzanes since 2012, according to OIJ Director Francisco Segura Montero. Los Tarzanes, which is allegedly is run by Reyes Aragon and his six brothers, is suspected of smuggling cocaine from Colombia and marijuana from Jamaica into Costa Rica. Authorities believe Los Tarzanes operatives store the drugs in Limon for later shipment by boat or truck to Honduras and Mexico, or for sale in Costa Rica’s domestic illicit drug market. Los Tarzanes In addition to the arrests of the suspected members of Los Tarzanes, Costa Rica police and security forces have scored a number of successes against transnational criminal organizations engaged in the drug trade. For example, on June 10 and 11, 2014, the Costa Rica Coast Guard seized more than 4 tons of cocaine found on Costa Rican fishing boats off the Pacific Coast. The seizure was reportedly the largest in the country’s history. Costa Rican drug seizures have more than doubled since 2011. Costa Rica security forces have dismantled more than a dozen international drug trafficking operations since 2006, according to published reports. The capture of Reyes Aragon and the increase in drug seizures may indicate that Costa Rican security forces are improving their effectiveness in fighting drug trafficking, said Armando Rodríguez Luna, a security analyst at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). Costa Rican security forces have improved their effectiveness in fighting Los Tarzanes and other organized crime groups “because they have improved their ability to protect the country’s border in the fight against drug trafficking, and they have continued to collaborate and exchange information with other governments in joint border operations,” according to Rodríguez Luna. Julieta Pelcastre contributed to this article. Costa Rican authorities have arrested the alleged leader of a Nicaraguan drug trafficking group known as Los Tarzanes. Agents of Costa Rica’s Judicial Investigation Body (OIJ) arrested Agustin Reyes Aragon, 40, on June 12. They arrested Reyes Aragon during a series of raids in the Caribbean coastal province of Limon. Security forces also detained three other suspects: a Nicaraguan man, a Honduran man, and a female whose nationality was not immediately determined. OIJ agents confiscated two AK-47 assault rifles, a vehicle and currency in the amount of $14,000 (USD) and one million colones during the raids. Wanted in Nicaragua center_img Los Tarzanes was founded in the mid-1990s as part of a drug trafficking network operated by the now defunct Norte del Valle Cartel in Colombia, Nicaraguan police have said. Operating primarily as transporters, Los Tarzanes operatives use go-fast boats and vehicles to move shipments of Colombian cocaine and precursor chemicals for methamphetamine production north for eventual sale to Mexican transnational criminal organizations such as the Gulf Cartel (CDG). Los Tarzanes was originally based along Nicaragua’s southern border. In recent years, as Nicaraguan security forces have increased patrols in that region, the drug trafficking group has increased its operations on the Costa Rican border.

Brazilian Army Officers Fulfill Unprecedented Mission in the Central African Republic

first_imgBy Taciana Moury/Diálogo April 23, 2019 Major Felipe Biasi Filho, Captain Pedro Henrique de Araujo Bezerra Mendes, and Captain Albemar Rodrigues Lima, all from the Brazilian Army (EB, in Portuguese), are part of an unprecedented Brazilian mission to the Central African Republic (CAR). The officers are part of a group of 180 service members from 12 nations, who work at the European Training Mission in the Central African Republic or EUTM RCA (RCA being the French acronym for the African country). EUTM RCA, with headquarters in Bangui, the country’s capital, is a peacekeeping operation that works in coordination with the United Nations Integrated Multidimensional Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic and other international and nongovernmental organizations. The goal is to overhaul the defense department and national security through planning and execution of consulting, training, and operational training activities for the Central African Armed Forces (FACA, in French). “In general, our function is to support the development of FACA’s capabilities, to make it self-sustainable to fulfill legal requirements in the defense and security department,” said Maj. Biasi. The Brazilian officers arrived in the African country in January 2019, and will remain there until January 2020. For administrative purposes, EB service members are linked to the Portuguese contingent. A bilateral Brazil-Portugal agreement approved by the European Parliament secured Brazil’s participation in the mission. History The conflict in CAR started in December 2012. The predominantly Muslim Seleka—a coalition of armed groups from the north of the country, whose name means alliance, in Sango, the region’s creole language—conducted an offensive operation toward the capital and assumed power. Violent incidents led to the emergence of Anti-Balak, Christian allegedly self-defense groups, which aggravated confrontations. EUTM RCA activities are based on three pillars: strategic advice, to aid planning and execution of activities at the Armed Forces General Staff and Defense Ministry levels; educational, to train FACA’s officers and noncommissioned officers (NCOs); and operational training to plan and execute training for segments of FACA units. Within this organization, Brazilian service members occupy strategic advisory positions with Capt. Albemar, and educational advisory positions with Maj. Biasi and Capt. Pedro Mendes. “Capt. Albemar performs logistics advisory functions through the implementation of planning and participation in meetings with the Armed Forces General Staff, the Ministry of Defense, and logistics companies within the country to find solutions and promote the strengthening of the sector,” said Maj. Biasi to Diálogo. “I teach intelligence courses and Capt. Pedro Mendes is in charge of International Humanitarian Law and English,” he said. The officers teach their respective areas in officer training classes, short-term internships, and refresher classes for officers and NCOs who are part of FACA’s Territorial Infantry battalions. At EUTM RCA’s base, the official language is English, used for internal documents and daily briefings. However, French is the language for courses, meetings, reports, and interactions with agencies and local institutions. Preparations for the mission took place in two phases. The first was under the coordination of the Land Forces Command, an EB unit with headquarters in Rio de Janeiro. Participants underwent psychological tests, among others, and received all the material for individual protection, uniforms, and medicine needed for the trip. In December 2018, the second phase took place at the Portuguese Army’s 1st Anti-Aircraft Artillery Group in Queluz city, Lisbon. The unit prepares the Portuguese contingent. “We receive instructions on the current situation in CAR and on the specifics of EUTM RCA. We do target practice with individual weapons (rifle and pistol) from the Portuguese Army, combat first aid and psychological first aid training, and attend French classes,” said Maj. Biasi. Challenge According to Brazilian service members, the unprecedented nature of the experience was the main challenge to overcome. “We must keep the high standards of professionalism and dedication of Brazilian service members who were part of a UN [United Nations] peacekeeping operation,” said Maj. Biasi. “The fact that this activity has a different characteristic from what we are used to with the UN also makes it difficult.” “There is no room for failure; After all, it’s important to be able to contribute to the development of the armed forces of a country that’s temporarily unstable,” said Capt. Albemar. “The best part is to see the initial results of this work on site, with the assurance that this effort contributed, directly or indirectly, to save lives.” Capt. Pedro Mendes pointed out that the sacrifices and risks related to this type of activity are real, but the magnitude of the mission is motivating. “We can honor one of the principles of our profession, which is to avoid war. We help a country devastated by civil war and with serious social issues,” he said. “To be a peace instructor in one of the countries with the worst HDI [Human Development Index] in the world is, without a doubt, one of the most noble missions I was assigned in my life.” The officer also highlighted the importance of Brazilian service members working with different armies worldwide. “This is a way of expressing Brazilian military national power, showing that we are on equal footing with other countries in the world,” said Capt. Pedro Mendes. “The professional exchange enables the training of EB’s human resources.”last_img read more

Tech Time: Preventing potential hacks

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr It takes more than just your IT staff to make it happen.by: Jim DeitchThe Sony, Home Depot, Target and other recent cyberhacks have credit union executives asking, “What can we do to prevent similar hacks to our systems?”And it’s a good question.Notably, most hackers don’t enter the security perimeter through traditional IT security systems. The “headline hacks” almost always begin with an employee or vendor inadvertently providing access. Lesser known financial services hacks have resulted in significant losses:A financial institution employee at work clicked on a link from an email that was supposedly from the president of that institution. The link inserted malware, which a hacker used to obtain complete network compromise, customer data, and a gateway into other systems in a federally insured financial institution.An employee clicked on a “spoofed” Wi-Fi connection that was thought to be secure. Logon information was stolen, and systems were compromised through insertion of malware into the initial compromised laptop. continue reading »last_img read more

What can you do about those late credit card payments?

first_img 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr I am a firm believer in not making the same mistake twice; I prefer to make new ones instead.  In that vein, please do me a favor and double-check the way your credit union handles delinquent credit card accounts.Late last week, a federal district court in Massachusetts ruled that American Airlines Federal Credit Union violated both the Truth in Lending Act and a similarly worded Massachusetts state law by seizing funds in the member’s account after she became delinquent on credit card payments due to the credit union.  A recurring question that the Association’s Compliance Department fields is just what steps credit unions can take to “offset” member funds when they fall behind on credit card payments.  The case provides a great opportunity for everyone to remember the basic rules and double-check their procedures.  (See Martino v. Am. Airlines Fed. Credit Union, No. 14-10310-DPW, 2015 WL 4920015, at *4 (D. Mass. Aug. 18, 2015)).The most important thing to keep in mind is that the Truth in Lending Act extends added protections to credit card holders.  Consequently, if you want the option of claiming funds to recover delinquent credit card payments, there are several steps you must take ahead of time.  Fortunately, this is one area where the regulations are self-explanatory. continue reading »last_img read more

How the Istra Inspirit story “Casanova Tour” exceeded all my expectations

first_imgHow to start the story of Istra Inspirit, one of the world’s best tourist stories, confirmed and U, than with one story.A book is a book, a brochure is a brochure, an information board is a board, and no matter how many written words describe an event, it can become a real and striking experience only if we experience it live. On the other hand, we all know the power of stories, which accompany us from a young age to youth, work, and eventually we ourselves become storytellers when we become parents and tell the same stories to our children. The power of the story has always followed and will always follow the human race. Why? Because stories evoke strong emotions and experiences in us, and thus are strongly positioned. Pure biology.That is why the world of marketing has long accepted the storytelling concept in promotion, and for a long time big brands do not sell products but emotions, experiences and products are identified with human characteristics. So Nike doesn’t sell sneakers, Harley Davidson doesn’t sell motorcycles, while Coca-Cola doesn’t sell drinks.And tourism is the best of all – stories, emotions and experiences. Here’s a “trick” question: What do you remember from your last vacation? Accommodation or some special moments with the family? The answer is surely some experience, moment, emotion, not a hotel or accommodation. It was the power of the story that took me to Vrsar, the love destination of Giacomo Casanova, an adventurer and the world’s most famous seducer, who in 1743 stayed in Vrsar for a year. But this information, no matter how interesting, would not have any value without interpretation and would certainly not be remembered for long.And this is where storytelling and Istra Inspirit come into play, a multi-award winning experience tourism project that enriches the cultural and tourist offer of the peninsula by reviving historical events in authentic locations, through staged Istrian legends and myths.Thus, Istra Inspirit actors introduced tourists to ancient times or time travel, through the authentic streets and locations of Vrsar when Casanova walked and stayed in Vrsar, all through a storytelling concept or an interactive costumed walk. ‘In addition to numerous cultural and entertainment events that are traditionally organized during the summer months, Vrsar will try to provide its guests with a unique experience of traveling into history this summer. In addition to the Old Samnja, which revives Vrsar in the time of the Vrsar County and which will have two editions this year, we also started the Casanova Tour. Like the previous Casanovafest, this new interactive tour has the character of Giacomo Casanova and the description of his stay in Vrsar from the famous Memoirs.”Said Natalija Vugrinec, director of the Tourist Board of Vrsar and added that this event is a continuation of the story at Casanovafest, which was organized over the past nine years, and which through lectures, plays, film screenings, exhibitions and concerts presented the theme of love and eroticism in various forms. art.In cooperation with Istra Inspirit, a new concept has been designed for this tourist season – a guided interactive tour in six terms, in order to enable as many guests as possible to get acquainted with the interesting rich history of our place. “For the next season, Casanova Tour is planned to be supplemented with a gastronomic experience, in accordance with the EU project “I enjoy tradition” in which TZO Vrsar is one of the partners, and whose theme is the preservation and tourist valorization of indigenous foods and dishes. We are sure that such an event will be extremely attractive to guests in our destination, but also that it will have a significant promotional effect.. ‘ Vugrinec emphasized.Casanova Tour is a great example of the promotion of a destination through cultural and historical heritage and its interpretation in the manner of storytelling through theatrical expression in performance. A performance that is at least more than impressive, in the manner of legendary and striking Hollywood actors, without any exaggeration. You know the feeling when a movie scene becomes legendary, that’s exactly what the performance was like. By the way, over 200 different artists, performers and actors are participating in the Istra Inspirit project under the artistic direction of director Petra B. Blašković.Thus, the professional actors of Istra Inspirit, as part of the ‘Casanova Tour’, took all visitors on an unforgettable journey to the time of the Vrsar County when the seducer and adventurer, Giacomo Casanova, stayed in Vrsar twice. The first time, as he states in his ‘Memoirs’, which served as a source for the script of this innovative tour, he visited Vrsar for three days in August 1743, still as a poor and infamous priest, while the second time he came to Vrsar as a soldier during a voyage from the Venetian island of Malamocco, when his ship anchored at night in the port of Vrsar. Giacomo Casanova, accompanied by the voice of the greatest lover in history, was returning to Vrsar, allegedly because of the beautiful women from Vrsar. Through entertaining and educational content, visitors were able to discover the more intimate side of Casanovina Vrsar, and all the interesting events that characterized his stay in Vrsar, and among other things, visited the lookout under the palm tree near the church of St. Anton, the lookout of Casanova, the main city gate, and Casanova’s refuge within the city walls, ie we met Vrsar in a different way and I am sure an unforgettable way. The cast that participates in the Casanova tour consists of Frano Novljan, Šandor Slacki, Luka Barešić, Sedina Cerovac and Ivona Bulešić, who with their striking and above all impressive interpretation met, laughed and intrigued everyone present, and through interaction drew the audience into the story. and the tourists themselves became part of the story.As I was familiar with the Istra inspirit story, I had high expectations and a clear idea of ​​what awaited me, but to be honest, my expectations were not only met, but were completely exceeded. I was delighted with the level of acting and how the actors immersed themselves in the roles. With the old town backdrop of Vrsar, the costumed actors and the striking interpretation of the story was more than credible, and I can say for sure that the visitors of the Casanova Tour felt as if they were really in that time and space. At times, we were brought back to reality by random passers-by who visually “interrupted” the sense of history and time travel.Surely he would never have known Vrsar so well, nor would he have remained in such a strong memory that I walked the streets of the city alone. That is why the storytelling concept is so important in tourism, because it is precisely about strong emotions and experience.But, as I mentioned at the beginning of this story, the word is the word, and no matter how powerful the words may be and trigger an avalanche of reactions, you can only understand the true experience and value of this story if you experience it. That is why Istra Inspirit interpretations should be one of the compulsory subjects for all tourism students.In any case, if you want to find out what a storytelling concept is, I definitely recommend that you experience one of the 13 Istra Inspirit stories, whether you are from the world of tourism or marketing. Ultimately, as is usually the case in Lijepa naša, everything that is ours is wrong, or if you think I have gone too far with the use of superlatives in the description, I challenge you to see for yourself.last_img read more

After 5 Months, Colorado Sees Downside of Legal High

first_imgNew York Times 31 May 2014Five months after Colorado became the first state to allow recreational marijuana sales, the battle over legalization is still raging.Law enforcement officers in Colorado and neighboring states, emergency room doctors and legalization opponents increasingly are highlighting a series of recent problems as cautionary lessons for other states flirting with loosening marijuana laws.There is the Denver man who, hours after buying a package of marijuana-infused Karma Kandy from one of Colorado’s new recreational marijuana shops, began raving about the end of the world and then pulled a handgun from the family safe and killed his wife, the authorities say. Some hospital officials say they are treating growing numbers of children and adults sickened by potent doses of edible marijuana. Sheriffs in neighboring states complain about stoned drivers streaming out of Colorado and through their towns.“I think, by any measure, the experience of Colorado has not been a good one unless you’re in the marijuana business,” said Kevin A. Sabet, executive director of Smart Approaches to Marijuana, which opposes legalization. “We’ve seen lives damaged. We’ve seen deaths directly attributed to marijuana legalization. We’ve seen marijuana slipping through Colorado’s borders. We’ve seen marijuana getting into the hands of kids.”http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/01/us/after-5-months-of-sales-colorado-sees-the-downside-of-a-legal-high.html?_r=1&referrerlast_img read more

Harvard study suggests tumbling object may have been alien craft

first_imgCambridge, Ma. — A mysterious cigar-shaped object spotted tumbling through our solar system last year may have been an alien spacecraft sent to investigate Earth, astronomers from Harvard University have suggested.The object, nicknamed ‘Oumuamua, meaning “a messenger that reaches out from the distant past” in Hawaiian, was first discovered in October 2017 by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii.Since its discovery, scientists have been at odds to explain its unusual features and precise origins, with researchers first calling it a comet and then an asteroid, before finally deeming it the first of its kind: a new class of “interstellar objects.”Now, a new paper by researchers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics raises the possibility that the elongated dark-red object, which is 10 times as long as it is wide and traveling at speeds of 196,000 mph, might have an “artificial origin.”“‘Oumuamua may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization,” they wrote in the paper, which has been submitted to the Astrophysical Journal Letters.The theory is based on the object’s “excess acceleration,” or its unexpected boost in speed as it traveled through and ultimately out of our solar system in January 2018.“Considering an artificial origin, one possibility is that ‘Oumuamua is a light sail, floating in interstellar space as a debris from an advanced technological equipment,” wrote the paper’s authors, suggesting that the object could be propelled by solar radiation.The paper, written by Abraham Loeb, professor and chair of astronomy, and Shmuel Bialy, a postdoctoral scholar, at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, points out that comparable light-sails already exist on earth.“Light-sails with similar dimensions have been designed and constructed by our own civilization, including the IKAROS project and the Starshot Initiative. The light-sail technology might be abundantly used for transportation of cargos between planets or between stars.”In the paper, the pair theorize that the object’s high speed and its unusual trajectory could be the result of it no longer being operational.“This would account for the various anomalies of ‘Oumuamua, such as the unusual geometry inferred from its light-curve, its low thermal emission, suggesting high reflectivity, and its deviation from a Keplerian orbit without any sign of a cometary tail or spin-up torques.”‘Oumuamua is the first object ever seen in our solar system that is known to have originated elsewhere.At first, astronomers thought the rapidly moving faint light was a regular comet or an asteroid that had originated in our solar system.Comets, in particular, are known to speed-up due to a process known as “outgassing,” in which the sun heats up the surface of the icy comet, releasing melted gas. But ‘Oumuamua didn’t have a “coma,” the atmosphere and dust that surrounds comets as they melt.Multiple telescopes focused on the object for three nights to determine what it was before it moved out of sight.“We are fortunate that our sky survey telescope was looking in the right place at the right time to capture this historic moment,” NASA Planetary Defense Officer Lindley Johnson said in a statement last year.“This serendipitous discovery is bonus science enabled by NASA’s efforts to find, track and characterize near-Earth objects that could potentially pose a threat to our planet.” CNN Wire Reportlast_img read more

Cricket News Bhaad Mein Gaya Pitch: Ravi Shastri On India’s Core Motto Of Taking 20 Wickets

first_imgNew Delhi: The Indian cricket team put on a dominant performance in the Test series against South Africa. Rohit Sharma capitalised on his new life as an opener by smashing twin centuries in Vizag and a maiden double ton in Ranchi. Virat Kohli notched up his highest individual score in the Pune Test while centuries from Mayank Agarwal and Ajinkya Rahane made the Indian batting intimidating. Crucial contributions from Cheteshwar Pujara and Ravindra Jadeja ensured South Africa never took 20 wickets in all the three Tests. Ravi Shastri, the head coach of the Indian cricket team, has likened his team’s batsmen to a Ferrari car.”Our batting is pretty much like a Ferrari taking off. Ajinkya Rahane was always there. He just needed to rediscover himself. When you need to open in Tests, you might get out in the first 10 balls. But Rohit did well to hang in there for the first two hours. And things changed after lunch for him to take advantage of that. The job satisfaction that an opener gets is wonderful. You have a captain who leads with example and gets a double hundred. You have Pujara chipping in, you have Rahane scoring the runs in the middle order,” Shastri said. Focus on taking 20 wicketsShastri’s compliment for the batsmen, though, did not take away the core focus of the Indian cricket team which was to take 20 wickets irrespective of the conditions. The pitches in the current series against South Africa helped both the pacers and the spinners, with Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja complimented well by Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma.”We had a wish that we could take pitch out of the equation. ‘Bhaad me gaya pitch’ (to hell with the pitches). Whether it’s Johannesburg or Melbourne or Mumbai, we want to take the pitch out of the equation. We always wanted to take 20 wickets irrespective of where we were playing. We are just focussed on taking 20 wickets. Normally, in India you have two players hogging the limelight. But here you have 6 or 7 chipping in,” Shastri said.Also Read | Will Talk To Virat Kohli Like A BCCI President Does: Sourav GangulyShastri complimented Shahbaz Nadeem, the debutant who made a good impression in the Ranchi Test. Nadeem’s first wicket of Temba Bavuma was hailed by former India spin legend Bishan Singh Bedi and his four wickets in the match was an impressive return after slogging away in the past decade in domestic cricket. “Extremely impressed with Nadeem. He comes over the top and has a great wrist position. The guy has put in the yards at the domestic level and am glad he finally had his chance at his home ground. He had no nerves and bowled three maidens on the trot,” Shastri said.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

England appoint Gough as fast bowling consultant ahead of NZ Tests

first_img(REUTERS) – Former seamer Darren Gough has been appointed as England’s fast bowling consultant for the warm-up period leading into November’s two-test tour of New Zealand, the country’s cricket board (ECB) said on Wednesday.Gough claimed 229 wickets in 58 Tests for England between 1994 and 2003.“I’m delighted to have Darren on board,” England head coach Chris Silverwood said in a statement.“I have known him a long time and his vast knowledge and experience at international level will drive our bowling unit forward leading into the two-match test series. He will be excellent around the group and will settle in quickly.”England are without a bowling coach after Silverwood was promoted to head coach’s role earlier this month.Gough, a former Yorkshire team mate of Silverwood, will join the test squad in Auckland on Nov. 5 and will work with the pace attack for two weeks before the first test in Mount Maunganui which begins on Nov. 21.“It is a tremendous honour to be asked by Chris Silverwood and Ashley Giles to be involved in this elite environment,” Gough said.“I will gain a lot from the experience and to work at this level will benefit me as a coach for the long-term.”last_img read more

Kevin Prince-Boateng: Choosing Ghana over Germany was a great decision

first_imgBeşiktaş forward, Kevin Prince-Boateng, has revealed that choosing Ghana over Germany was the best decision in his career.The former AC Milan attacker revealed this in a Puma interview with Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry.Boateng confirmed his nationality switch before the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and was part of the Black Stars team for that tournament and the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.Overall, he played 15 times for Ghana.When asked by the former Gunner why he chose Ghana over Germany, the 33-year-old highlighted the fact that he was of a mixed race and was discovering himself as he grew up.“That’s a tricky one. But it is simple. If you were like me, like yourself, we are all mixed race. Two sides.When you are young, you do not really know who you are. So you always have a lot of questions, trying to figure out yourself.So I did not feel German 100%, neither did I feel Ghanaian 100%. Of course, I am both Ghanaian and German but a lot of mixed-race people born in Germany feel 100% German.Others also felt they were more Nigerian, Cameroonian, Ghanaian or whatever but I was always in the middle not knowing 100% what I was”.Boateng admitted he was willing to represent Germany at the national level but thought he did not have the right character to be able to make the jump to the first team of the national team.“So when football came in and offered me the chance to play for Germany, I was proud to play for them, to hear the national anthem and what have you.But as I grew older, and kept my brains where I was, I said what I think, I always wanted to prove my point, whatever. It was not so welcomed, let’s put it like that. I always said it’s like this and the coaches will be like ‘no, it is like that’. Obviously the coaches are right but I always wanted to prove my point.So there came a point when I thought that maybe I would not play for the first team of Germany. Because maybe it will not be about qualities. My character did not fit so I chose to play for Ghana and honestly, it is the best decision I have made in my career.Because to go home to see your roots, to see your people, different culture and I had the chance to play two World cups. It gave me a lot”.Boateng (first from bottom left) in a Black Stars team picture during the 2010 World Cup in South Africalast_img read more

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error This was an encounter that flashed back to an epic five-minute, 11-pitch at-bat between the same two in Game 6 of last October’s NL Championship Series, which also ended with a Carpenter double and started a four-run rally in the third inning that marked the beginning of the end for Kershaw and the Dodgers’ playoff run.Maybe this rematch set the tone for the rest of the series — the Cardinals, and Carpenter, never feel backed into a corner.“You know, there was a moment during that at-bat when I was kind of feeling the same kind of emotions I was having last year,” said Carpenter. “It was a very similar thing. Very similar at-bat. “With (Kershaw), he’s got a fastball that’s anywhere between 94 and 96 (mph), so you’ve got to be on time with that. When I face him, I just try to be aggressive and try to be on time. There’s not a lot of success in (trying to hit) his slider and curveball, especially from a left-hander, so you got to do a good job of trying to lay off that one.“I can’t tell you why I’ve been able to have some success against him, because it’s not that easy. I don’t enjoy facing him. It’s the postseason, crazy things happen.” It’s not as if Carpenter was trying to limit the damage this time around.Down 0 and 2 in the count — fouling off the first pitch, then swinging and missing on the next — Carpenter fouled another pitch off. He laid off two sliders for balls. He fouled off two more. Then on a pitch down and in, he sent Matt Kemp to the right-field wall, allowing Yadier Molina, Matt Adams and Jon Jay to score to push the Cardinals ahead 7-6 and send Kershaw out.St. Louis’ eight-run seventh inning was capped off two batters later by Matt Holiday’s home run for a 10-6 advantage.And that was the second time in Friday’s game that Carpenter proved Kershaw wasn’t all invincible. Carpenter’s solo homer against him in the sixth inning ended a string of 16 consecutive batters that Kershaw had set down between Randal Grichuk’s first-inning homer and one out in the sixth.“I just enjoy competing in those moments,” said Carpenter. “He’s a competitive guy, I would like to feel that I’m a competitive guy and when I get in those at-bats versus him, I just try to fight.”Dodgers manager Don Mattingly acknowledged that Kershaw struck out the leadoff man Carpenter to start the game, but credited the career .293 hitter, who was 20 points below that average this season, as being “a tough out … we give him credit. He fights. But we’re not going to give in to that matchup.”Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Carpenter “sets the tone for the offense” with his grit.“He leaves it all out there,” said Matheny, “and takes pride in every at-bat. He doesn’t just turn it on and off. Certain guys in certain situations just step up in the process.“He puts his nose in there and fights to the end.”Comparing the eight-pitch encounter to the 11-pitch battle a year ago, Matheny added: “I imagine this one may be talked about awhile, too.”center_img If the judges’ cards show that St. Louis got the 10-9 decision over the Dodgers in round one of the National League Division Series, credit Matt Carpenter with delivering the punch that knocked all the hot wind out of Dodger Stadium.But it’s not as if Clayton Kershaw, or the Dodgers, were blindsided or anything by it.Carpenter’s eight-pitch faceoff in the seventh inning Friday against the likely repeat Cy Young Award winner ended with a crushing bases-loaded double off the base of the right-field wall, scoring three runs and bringing the Cardinals all the way back from what was already deemed an insurmountable five-run deficit at one point, based on Kershaw’s history.The blow may not have sent Kershaw directly to the showers, but he was reeling again, in the Dodgers’ dugout, trying to find his equilibrium.last_img read more

Dodgers swept by Giants, who celebrate wild-card berth

first_imgThe Dodgers’ offense did its familiar disappearing act against a left-handed pitcher. Matt Moore didn’t give up a hit until the fourth inning when singles by Justin Turner, Adrian Gonzalez and Yasmani Grandal produced the Dodgers’ only run.“There should be no carryover,” Dodgers rookie shortstop Corey Seager said of the poor finish. “It’s just one of those weird times where you go from being so high after clinching. You can’t read anything into it. Just reset, regroup.”The game ended Vin Scully’s 67-year Hall of Fame broadcasting career. The iconic broadcaster traveled to San Francisco to call the final three games of the regular season. Sunday’s finale came 80 years to the day after a lopsided World Series defeat (18-4) of the New York Giants had made Scully a baseball — and Giants — fan.It’s a familiar story that Scully recounted once more as part of multiple tributes to the retiring legend during his final broadcast Sunday which was punctuated with several standing ovations, a visit from Willie Mays in the booth and a plaque placed there by the Giants honoring Scully.“It has been a party,” Scully said during the broadcast of his last game.“Don’t be sad that it’s over. Smile because it happened.” SAN FRANCISCO >> The Dodgers couldn’t knock the St. Louis Cardinals out of the postseason in 2013 or 2014. But they did Sunday.The San Francisco Giants scored five times in the first two innings against Kenta Maeda and collected 16 hits in all on their way to handing the Dodgers a 7-1 defeat Sunday afternoon, completing a three-game sweep on the final weekend of the regular season at AT&T Park.That means the Giants have qualified for the postseason as the National League’s second wild-card team — the same door they used on the way to winning the 2014 World Series — and will play the New York Mets on Wednesday. The Cardinals were eliminated with the Giants’ victory.The Dodgers, meanwhile, lost five of their six games after clinching their fourth consecutive NL West title a week ago. They will open the playoffs at Washington on Friday. “In talking to a couple coaches, that’s what we’re going to have to do — we’re going to have to hit the ‘reset’ button,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “It was a crazy week. Some highs and obviously some lows. To come in here and play a team that had their backs against the wall — they played like it. They won three games here, three games that they needed to win.“When you’re trying to play the middle — get guys rested, set your rotation, things like that — it’s really kind of against what we’ve done all year. No excuse. We’ll be ready go go on Friday.”Matters were settled early Sunday.Maeda earned a $1.5 million bonus by making his 32nd start of the season Sunday. It was not the best money the Dodgers ever spent. He gave up hits to seven of the first 12 Giants batters, walked another and didn’t make it out of the third inning.“My command was off. I didn’t have any sharpness to any of my pitches,” Maeda said through his interpreter. “It’s too bad that my season ended on a bad note. But I’m going to go through my usual adjustments and get ready for my next start.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Kenley Jansen serves up ninth-inning grand slam as Padres walk off with win over Dodgers

first_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire The next batter, Wil Myers, made it two bunt hits in a row when his rolled untouched through the grass on the third-base side of the pitcher’s mound as Seager went to cover second base, Turner third and Jansen broke slowly from the mound.Good Wil bunting loaded the bases.“I’ve got to get to my responsibility and make sure we get an out,” Turner said. “They have their 7 and 8 hitters coming up. Get an out there and let Kenley pitch his way out of it.“It wasn’t a great bunt. But my responsibility there is to make sure we get an out.”Jansen nearly did work his way out of it anyway. He struck out Greg Garcia and got Francisco Mejia to pop out, moving an out away from escaping with the win.“Oh, man – that’s the suck part of it because I visualized myself out of it,” Jansen said.Renfroe came off the bench to pinch hit and took a called strike down the middle from Jansen. The second pitch was another cut fastball over the heart of the plate, only slightly higher.Renfroe didn’t hesitate. He drove it deep into the left-field stands, tossing his bat away and throwing his arms in the air before starting his victory lap.“Second pitch I tried to go up and up,” Jansen said. “I tried to climb the ladder but the ball stayed a little down and he put a good swing on it.“Sometimes stuff like that is going to happen. … Things happen. You can’t question yourself. How about that perfect bunt Margot put down? JT thought that was going to go foul. It stayed fair. Stuff like that is going to happen sometimes. This sucks right now. At the same time, I fought well out there.”Renfroe’s slam was the fourth home run Jansen has given up already this season (after giving up 13 last year, the most by any reliever in the NL). But it was the paper cuts that lingered.“You know, if that’s the way they have to beat me, I’ll take that,” Jansen said of the bunt singles by Margot and Myers. “It’s a compliment for me. Two perfect bunts, that’s how they beat me today.” PreviousThe Los Angeles Dodgers’ Max Muncy, center, reacts with teammate David Freese, right, after hitting a three-run home run during the fifth inning of a baseball game against the San Diego Padres, Sunday, May 5, 2019, in San Diego.

(AP Photo/Gregory Bull)ExpandSAN DIEGO — The Dodgers spent the weekend in San Diego with their outstretched arm planted firmly on the Padres’ forehead, letting them swing away only to come up short.The Padres connected Sunday afternoon.Hunter Renfroe’s pinch-hit grand slam with two outs in the ninth inning off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen gave the San Diego Padres an 8-5 walkoff win Sunday afternoon and prevented a Dodgers sweep of the sold-out series at Petco Park.The series drew 133,456 fans (a lot of them wearing Dodger blue), a record for a three-game series at Petco Park and prompted questions about the “rivalry” between the two teams – questions Dodgers manager Dave Roberts joked he seems to get in every city the Dodgers visit.center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season After a miserable first month to the season (he was batting .162 three days ago), Taylor came to life in San Diego. He was 7 for 13 in the series with two home runs, a double and four RBI.“He’s getting opportunities to go out there and play,” Roberts said, alluding to the five consecutive left-handed starters the Dodgers faced this week. “I think he’s taking better swings. When he does get a ball in the strike zone, he’s getting it going forward and not fouling it off or swinging through it.“And when you start to get some hits it breeds confidence – even a couple balls that were softly hit. You see an ‘H’ on the board and you start to get a little more confidence.”Starter Kenta Maeda and relievers Pedro Baez and Ross Stripling retired 14 consecutive Padres – seven in a row on strikeouts at one point – through the bottom of the eighth and handed the one-run lead to Jansen who saved each of the first two games in this series.But Jansen gave up a leadoff single to Eric Hosmer then Manuel Margot dropped a bunt down the third-base line. Justin Turner had no play, instead hoping it would go foul. It didn’t.Related Articles “That one hurts, for sure,” Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager said. “We’re down all game, come back to get the lead. That stings. But we won the series and that’s what matters.”They did, despite leading after just three innings, one each day.“They’re hungry. They want to beat us,” Jansen said after Sunday’s loss. “Everyone wants to beat us in this division. Everyone wants to beat us in the National League. We’re two-time National League champions so every game we’re going to play against teams it’s going to be their ‘A’ games.“They’re hungry to beat us. But I can’t let this beat us. A situation like this happens. I’ve got to turn the page on it.”For the third consecutive game, the Dodgers spotted the Padres an early lead and seemed poised to ruin their day. Max Muncy hit a three-run home run in the fifth to make it a one-run game, 4-3, then Chris Taylor gave the Dodgers a 5-4 lead with a two-run home run in the eighth inning.

NFL Draft: 5 things to get ready for

first_imgAaron Donald (Courier Photo/William McBride/File)NEW YORK (AP) – Every NFL draft is filled with intrigue. When the crop of college players has 102 early entrants, including the likes of Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel, that simply ratchets up the excitement.Here are five things to watch for in the first round Thursday night:WE’RE NO. 1: That would be the Texans, who went 2-14 last season to more than earn the first spot in the proceedings. But there’s no certainty who they will grab, or if they will stay there.General manager Rick Smith has made it clear the Texans have listened to offers for the first pick.“If we take the first pick, we know who we want,” Smith said. “(But) we are obviously open to moving out of the first pick, if in fact there is an opportunity for us to do so and if we think that is in the best interest of the organization.”Teams that could be interested in jumping up to the top, presumably to select South Carolina star defensive end Clowney, are Atlanta, Tampa Bay and even Dallas, which needs lots of work on its defense.GOING DEEP: Many analysts have dubbed this the best draft for wide receivers in years, perhaps ever. The consensus top guy is Clemson’s Sammy Watkins, followed by Mike Evans of Texas A&M, Brandin Cooks of Oregon State, Odell Beckham Jr., of LSU, Marqise Lee of Southern California, and Kelvin Benjamin of national champion Florida State.Watkins is projected to go in the first five picks, unusually high for a wideout.“I think what sets Sammy apart is his sincerity and passion for the game,” ESPN analyst and 2003 Super Bowl-winning coach Jon Gruden said last week. “Everyone I’ve talked to has come away very impressed with Watkins’ passion to be great and to put forth a tremendous work ethic.”QB CLASS: No one is comparing this to the 2012 class that produced Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson. Still, there’s talk four quarterbacks could go in the opening round.There’s also some thought that only two, Texas A&M’s Manziel and Central Florida’s Blake Bortles, will be taken Thursday night.The other highly rated quarterbacks to watch for are Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater, Fresno State’s Derek Carr, and two late risers: Georgia’s Aaron Murray and Pittsburgh’s Tom Savage.Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, has lots of boom or bust in him. Nobody can deny he is a big-time playmaker, though.“When you’re dealing with a high-profile position like the quarterback, obviously there’s some well-documented things to cover and to consider,” Gruden said. “Manziel brings a lot of excitement and interest to your organization. Maybe some people don’t want to be part of it. That will be up to them.”IN THE TRENCHES: No fewer than a dozen guys who play on either the offensive or defensive line figure to go Thursday. They range from the NFL-ready tackle Jake Matthews of Texas A&M, whose dad, Bruce, is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, to UCLA guard Xavier Su’a Filo on offense. On defense, look for Pittsburgh tackle Aaron Donald and Notre Dame nose tackle Louis Nix III.It’s possible that the first three players chosen all will do their work in the trenches: Clowney, Buffalo DE-LB Khalil Mack, and Auburn tackle Greg Robinson.LESSER KNOWNS: Some players from smaller schools to watch out for, if not in the first round then certainly in the second:LB-DE Khalil Mack, Buffalo – A certain high pick who can disrupt any offense with his pass-rushing skills and is no slouch against the run.S Jimmie Ward, Northern Illinois – Hits a ton and had an impressive Senior Bowl. But he comes off foot surgery.QB Jimmy Garappolo, Eastern Illinois – From the same school that produced Tony Romo, he’s skilled, mature and a leader.OL Joel Bitonio, Nevada – Versatile blocker who can play anywhere on the line, he has a real mean streak.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

Fligor Named New Harbor Head; Resigns From Council

first_img“John is leaving huge shoes to fill,” Fligor said. “There was bay water and boats that floated all the way up to the highway during Sandy. And John had things back up and running in nine months. You can’t ever be completely prepared for an event like Sandy. And God forbid anything like that ever happens again. But I’m part of great team in this town. And we’ll push along, because we have to, because the marina is important to our community.” The marina has more than 700 boat slips and Hubeny said it was close to 100 percent capacity in the 2019 season. The marina operates with a more than $6 million budget and generates $1.5 million in revenue from boat slip rentals for the borough’s tax base. At a meeting Sept. 25, the council appointed Kerri Kennedy to fill his unexpired term. Hubeny said the selection process was rigorous. Fligor’s application was one of 20 the borough received after the position was advertised in various local, county and state newspapers, and online on the New Jersey Marine Trades Association website. “I appreciate the council’s support and I just hope I’m everything you think I am. I’ve served on this council for 18 years… This is a great town. Take care of it,” Fligor said to the council. Fligor, who grew up working on boats in the marina and has had four of his own stored there over the years, will lead one of only eight municipally owned and operated marinas in New Jersey. It’s the single largest of that ilk from Maine to Florida, according to Hubeny. Fligor has served as a councilman for the better part of two decades and has volunteered his time with various organizations for the last 23, including the Atlantic Highlands Historical Society and the Harbor Commission. ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – Louis Fligor’s eyes welled up at a recent borough council meeting when the governing body voted unanimously to name the longtime elected official the municipality’s new harbor manager. But resigning his seat on the council to take the harbor manager position was an emotional moment for Fligor. Atlantic Highlands does not currently have a nepotism policy, but borough administrator Adam Hubeny quickly dismissed the notion. “(Fligor’s) experience might actually be a positive despite the optics,” borough resident Tucker Snedeker told The Two River Times. “The real problem is he got his son-in-law a job at the harbor a few years ago. So how do you get a fair shake as a fellow employee and peer? Who gets the day off or the bonus or the promotion or the better work assignment?” center_img Fligor, 58, officially took the reins of the Marina Sept. 27, and will earn an annual starting salary of $62,500. “Lou’s son-in-law works at the harbor, but there’s insulation there,” Hubeny explained to residents at the Aug. 13 council meeting, noting that all harbor employees report to dockmaster James Osborn. “Mr. Osborne has (worked at the marina) for 42 years. The dockmaster reports to Jim Phillips, who is our DPW director. And if there’s a personnel matter, they will report to me. Normally they would report to the harbor manager, but in this case, if it involves Lou’s son-in-law, they’ll come to me.” The selection committee then interviewed seven candidates and whittled that field down to three potential choices. After a subsequent round of interviews, the committee decided that Fligor checked all of the boxes. Though borough lands are nearly completely built out, Fligor hopes to implement a series of floating boat slips situated in marina waters that will increase capacity and revenue. “It’s something that can be done. It’s part of the vision. But that will take some time,” Fligor said. Though the governing body may have given its vote of confidence, Fligor’s appointment comes with pushback from some residents who wonder if nepotism played a role. According to councilman Steve Borracchia, one of the reasons Fligor was selected for the position is because of his vision to expand the marina’s footprint and make it a more profitable utility. Longtime Atlantic Highlands councilman and community volunteer Louis Fligor has been appointed harbor manager at the marina.Photo by Chris Rotolo Fligor will succeed former harbor manager John Amici who accepted the position in July 2009, not long before the Bayshore was slammed by historic weather events like Hurricane Irene in 2011 and Super Storm Sandy in 2012. “This has to be the least political thing I’ve seen happen in Atlantic Highlands since I’ve been coming to meetings,” said council member Lori Hohenleitner. “Everyone on the harbor commission was fully confident that this was the best person for the job. I’m not necessarily going to be sitting up here for the rest of my life, but if I’ve made one decision that really showed the true character of our town, I’m confident this is one of them.” last_img read more

City thrash Schalke to reach Champions League quarters

first_imgAguero’s penalty opened the scoring at and the Argentine forward netted again before Leroy Sane, who also contributed three assists, struck against his former club.Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus all scored after the interval to complete City’s biggest home win in the Champions League.Pep Guardiola’s side, who lifted the League Cup in February, remain on course for an unprecedented quadruple, sitting one point ahead of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League before this weekend’s FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea.Sergio Aguero scored twice in Manchester City’s 7-0 thrashing of SchalkeThis emphatic victory was the joint-biggest ever Champions League knockout stage win but won’t linger long in the memory given Schalke’s total lack of resistence. However it could be a good omen as City beat Schalke en route to winning their only European trophy in the 1970 Cup Winners’ Cup.Twice a Champions League winner as Barcelona boss, Guardiola claimed this week that City are “teenagers” in the competition compared to the more established European powers.They have never won the Champions League, with their best performance a semi-final appearance in 2016 under Guardiola’s predecessor Manuel Pellegrini.But City are one of the favourites to claim the trophy after Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain crashed out and, on this evidence, Guardiola’s players are up for the challenge of showing they are more mature than he believes.It seems only winning Europe’s elite club prize can make City fans fall in the love with the tournament.Once again they loudly jeered the Champions League anthem, this time in frustration at UEFA’s recent investigation into the club over allegations of financial misconduct.Guardiola had claimed it would be a “dangerous situation” to underestimate Schalke, but the struggling Bundesliga team were never a realistic candidate to spring a surprise.– Floodgates opened –Sergio Aguero was in predatory form in Manchester City’s demolition of SchalkeSprinting onto Kyle Walker’s pass, Sterling crossed for Aguero to shoot against a post in the opening moments.Guardiola’s men monopolised possession and their territorial dominance finally paid off in the 35th minute.Ilkay Gundogan clipped a pass into the Schalke penalty area and Jeffrey Bruma bundled over Bernardo, with the spot-kick awarded after being checked by VAR.Aguero stepped up to nonchalantly chip the penalty down the middle as Ralf Fahrmann dived the wrong way.Aguero has now scored in four successive Champions League games for the first time.That opened the floodgates as Aguero quickly put the result beyond doubt three minutes later.Sterling was the provider as he raced onto Gundogan’s pass and pulled the ball back to Aguero, who squeezed his shot past Fahrmann from a tight angle for his 27th goal of the season.An interminable VAR delay of several minutes while Sterling was confirmed as onside drew more boos from City fans.Leroy Sane shone against his former side SchalkeBut they were celebrating again in the 42nd minute.This time it was Sane who ripped open the shambolic Schalke defence, the German winger sent clear on goal by Oleksandr Zinchenko before driving a clinical strike into the far corner.City were streets ahead of Schalke in every phase of the game and Sterling maintained his sublime form with a cool finish from Sane’s majestic pass in the 56th minute.Bernardo made it five in the 71st minute, netting with a first-time shot from Sane’s pass.There was still time for Foden to bag his first Champions League goal as the young midfielder took Sane’s pass and slotted home in the 78th minute.Jesus beat Fahrmann’s weak attempted save with six minutes left to complete City’s perfect evening.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City players celebrate one of their seven goals against Schalke during a Champions League tie at the Etihad Stadium on March 13, 2019MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Mar 13 – Manchester City thrashed Schalke 7-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday to romp into the Champions League quarter-finals and keep their quadruple bid alive.City had snatched two late goals to win the first leg 3-2 and they made the most of that fightback with a ruthless demolition job at the Etihad Stadium to clinch a 10-2 aggregate victory.last_img read more

Buti Manamela addresses National Union of Mineworkers Youth Council

first_imgKeynote address by Deputy Minister Buti Manamela to the National Union of Mineworkers National Youth Council, Birchwood Hotel, EkurhuleniDeputy Minister in Presidency Buti ManamelaThe General Secretary, Comrade Frans BaleniSabelo Mgotshwa, National Secretary of NUM youth councilLeaders of the NUM and National Youth CouncilComrades and friendsIt is indeed a pleasure and a privilege to address the NUM National Youth Council meeting today. The General Secretary has requested me to speak about the National Youth Policy 2020. I am mindful that I am speaking to youth activists who have always championed a progressive youth development agenda.Before I speak about the NYP 2020, I would like to make a few comments on the attacks on foreign nationals that have been taking place recently.These images of violence and criminality directed at foreign nationals have been splattered over the front pages of our newspapers and our television screens. They have tugged at our hearts and sometimes brought tears to our eyes.We have seen young people at the forefront of these attacks often displaying the most brute and thuggish behaviour. There can be no justification for this. This is not the South Africa we know. The majority of South Africans are peace loving and want good relations with our brothers and sisters on the continent.We have also seen young South Africans stand up and boldly declare “NOT IN MY NAME”. These young people have courageously said that they will not be silent in the face of xenophobia and attacks on foreign nationals. They will not allow the name of South Africa to be associated with these dastardly acts committed by the few.As youth leaders gathered here today we have a responsibility to provide direction and education to our young people. We have to guide young people to live out the values within our Constitution and within the African Youth Charter.Without us providing leadership, our young people will be at the command of selfish populist voices that do not share in the values of our Constitution. These selfish populist voices will not be there when our young people have to face the consequences of their criminal actions.So I encourage you today, let’s take our responsibility as leaders of youth seriously. We must stand up and boldly declare that xenophobia and attacks on foreign nationals will not happen in my name. And we must mobilise our young people to stand up and clearly say: NOT IN MY NAME.I am reminded that it was in this very same venue on 29 and 30 March, the Presidency held a National Consultation with youth organisations and other stakeholders on the NYP 2020. We directly engaged youth in provincial, regional and local consultations across the nine provinces. We went to schools, shebeens, taxi ranks, bus stations and workplaces speaking with young people. We met with key youth formations from across our diverse youth sector. We received over 100 written submissions on the NYP 2020 from varied youth voices across the country.We could not meet all young people face to face. So we used social media platforms extensively. All NYP 2020 activities were put on the Facebook and Twitter accounts of The Presidency to ensure that young people were always kept abreast of the consultative meetings happening in their area.We reached about 100 000 young people with the # NYP 2020 campaign and got young people talking through the photos they took holding up boards and a message of what they want to see in the National Youth Policy 2020.We consulted extensively because we believe that the National Youth Policy 2020 is about the youth, for the youth and by the youth of South Africa. Nothing for us without us. Our consultations were rooted in the unwavering assurance that young men and women have a critical role to play in their own development. Their views matter and their voices must be heard.The draft NYP 2020 will shortly be submitted to the respective cabinet committee for review and subsequently be submitted to cabinet for approval. We expect the NYP2020 to be launched by the President in June 2015.The objectives of the NYP 2020 are clear. These objectives are to:• Consolidate and integrate youth development into the mainstream of government policies, programmes and the national budget• Strengthen the capacity of key youth development institutions and ensure integration and co-ordination in the delivery of youth services• Strengthen the capacity of young people to enable them to take charge of their own well-being through building their assets and ultimately realising their potential to the fullest• Strengthen a culture of patriotic citizenship among young people and to help them become responsible adults who care for their families and others• Foster a sense of national cohesion, while acknowledging the existence of diverse circumstances and inculcate the spirit of patriotism by encouraging visible and active participation in different youth initiatives or projects and nation-building activitiesOf course all these policy objectives must lead us to the desired policy outcome. This outcome is “to produce empowered young people who are able to realise their full potential and understand their roles and responsibilities in making a meaningful contribution to the development of a non-racial, equal, democratic and prosperous South Africa.”Through the initial research we have undertaken we identified five priorities for the NYP 2020.These five priorities are:• Enabling economic participation and transformation• Facilitating education, skills development and second chances (quality and access)• Health care and combating substance abuse• Facilitating nation building and social cohesion• Optimising youth machinery for effective delivery and responsivenessThere are many policy proposals in each of the 5 identified priorities. I encourage you to read the draft NYP 2020. However I want to outline some key policy proposals in each area.In the priority area of economic participation and transformation, the NYP 2020 calls for:• Improved public employment schemes leading to better exiting possibilities for youth. These include the Youth Brigades, Expanded Public Works Programme and Community Works Programme.• Better and faster implementation of the Youth Employment Accord including a vigorous and robust monitoring and evaluation framework that must support the implementation of this youth policy.• Development of the Youth in ICT Strategy.• An impact study to examine the effectiveness of the Employment Tax incentive in stimulating job creation for new entrants into the labour market.• Scaling up of public service internships to create 60,000 internship opportunities.• A National Jobs Fair drive to support the integration and coordination of public and private sector work placement services.• A National Campaign to place university students and graduates who need work experience into Technical and Vocational Education and Training as part of completing their studies.• A mass youth enterprise creation programme.• Training young people on skills relevant to agriculture and agro-processing.• Improving small scale and commercial agriculture through stimulating and supporting young farmers.In the priority area of education, skills and second chances, the NYP 2020 calls for:• The performance of schools should improve to ensure that the majority of learners achieve above 50% in all learning areas.• The existing incentives to attract young people into the teaching profession should be retained at least for the next 5 years and teacher salaries should be competitive.• All learners should learn an indigenous language with sign language being progressively introduced in schools.• After school programmes to support learning and life skills.• Scaling up of programmes that provide learners with a second chance to pass matric.• Expansion of TVET colleges to increase the participation rate to 25% and the graduation rate to 75%.• Progressive introduction of free education for poor learners until undergraduate level with increased funding options available to support students at post-secondary level.• An expansion of career guidance offerings at all levels of schooling.In the priority area of health care and combatting substance abuse, the NYP 2020 calls for:• Increasing the access and availability of social workers with particular reference to mental health promotion and prevention.• Enabling access to sexual and reproductive health and rights services.• Expanding recreational facilities and diversion programmes.• Expanding access to drug prevention, treatment and rehabilitation centres.• Breaking down barriers through innovative healthy lifestyle campaigns on key health care themes.In the priority area of nation-building and social cohesion, the NYP 2020 calls for:• Young people must know and understand the National symbols in fostering a common identity.• Confronting racism in all its forms utilising social media platforms and other innovative campaigns and programmes initiated by youth.• Supporting youth leadership develop for active citizenry.• Better implementation of the National Youth Service.• Broadening sport and recreation opportunities including compulsory schools sports.In the priority area of optimising the youth machinery for effective delivery and responsiveness, the NYP 2020 calls for:• The re-establishment of the Youth Presidential Working Group to provide political support for the implementation of the NYP 2020 and its integrated youth development strategy.• Establishment of youth desks at national, provincial and local levels with adequate, capable and competent personnel and resources.• The amendment of the NYDA Act to allow for a more focused and responsive NYDA.• Strengthening of the South African Youth Council to enable it to discharge its mandate effectively.• The revival of the Youth Development Forum to promote greater commitment from the private sector towards youth development.I have highlighted a few of the key policy proposals. There are many more proposals and interventions within the NYP 2020 and I encourage you to read the policy document.A policy document, irrespective of how well it is crafted and consulted on, is not worth the paper it is written on if the policy is not effectively implemented and monitored. Strong and effective implementation and monitoring will help us learn lessons so that we can do things better.I made the call at the National Consultation Forum and I will re-iterate it today. We cannot implement this policy without the co-operation and partnership of civil society organisations like you.You can cooperate and partner with us in many ways. Some of these may include:• Identifying a niche area in the policy that the NUM can contribute to and advance. This may be a particular programme or campaign that NUM can develop to address a priority area.• Popularising the NYP 2020 with stakeholders in your domain. This may include education sessions with young workers and private sector companies that you are in contact with.• Directing resources, both financial and human capital, towards a particular priority area within the NYP 2020.• Holding government accountable towards the effective implementation of the NYP 2020.You have participated in the consultation process leading towards the development of the NYP 2020.I invite you to partner with us in the implementation and monitoring of the NYP 2020.I want to conclude with some remarks that I made to delegates at the National Youth Policy Consultative Conference. I concluded my address at the conference by stating a concern that I have. It’s a concern that has been with me for a while now. We know young people to be a special type, with unique characteristics. They are vibrant. They are energetic. They are creative. They are robust. They are resourceful. They are imaginative. They are original.So my concern and my question is this: Why is it that our youth engagement and our youth programmes do not reflect these unique characteristics.Have we become boring and unimaginative• Have we resorted to the safe and sterile• Have we put too much emphasis on the tried and tested• When I look around I see youth engagements and youth programmes, both in government and civil society, lacking vibrancy, energy and creativity.It makes our youth development stale. This is not what we want because it does not reflect the unique characteristics of being young.So I challenge you, as I challenge myself – Lets re-imagine youth development. Let’s push the boundaries. Let’s put ourselves out there. Let’s embark on this journey towards re-imaging youth development.Let’s take youth development to that place where it encounters and fuses with the unique characteristics of being young. We want our youth development to be vibrant, energetic, creative, robust, resourceful, imaginative and original.Let’s re-imagine youth development together.Issued by: The PresidencyPretoriaWebsite: www.thepresidency.gov.zaOperation Phakisa: www.operationphakisa.gov.zalast_img read more

Bread bags bring big benefits

first_imgDaycare runners enjoy prize giving day. (Image: BizCommunity) Sasko, the bakery, launched the Siyasizana Day-care Project for day cares in Tembisa, in Gauteng in late September 2015 – and the pre-school centres are already reaping the rewards.When the project was launched, there was a simple request made of day cares: collect used Sasko bread bags that would otherwise be thrown away, and redeem them for items such as mattresses, backpacks, basins, carpets, chairs and even fridges or stoves.Siyasizana is isiZulu for “we are helping each other”. The project mobilised Tembisa residents to work together to support of their local day cares by all collecting their plastic bags. In total, 300 000 bread bags were collected, exceeding the expectations of all involved.“We looked at the number of bread bags being discarded and the needs of the day cares in Tembisa,” Riaz Badroodeen, the brand manager of Sasko Bread, told SA Goodnews. “By collecting these bags to recycle, we are able to assist the mamas with the basic needs to make their day care environments more comfortable, ultimately benefiting the children in their care.“Collecting bags is a small gesture, with a large impact. With a tidy sum of 300 000 bags, participating day cares will now be able to refrigerate food, prepare cooked meals, provide blankets to keep children warm, and set up tables and chairs during activity and meal times.”THE PROJECT IS ON-GOINGThe success of the project now means it will be rolled out in other parts of the country.“Based on the success of the programme in Tembisa, we plan on rolling out the Sasko Siyasizana Day-care Project in other parts of South Africa. As the programme grows, we’ll continue to look at the needs of the participating day cares and how Sasko can assist,” Badroodeen said.Jane Mokgonyana of Tender Care Day Care was the ultimate winner after collecting 20 000 of the 300 000 packets. Runner-up Matema Mashilo from Bophelong Day Care collected 10 050 bags and was closely followed by Nanini Day Care, where Nomthandazo Mkhondwana collected a total of 9 550 bags.Seven other day cares in Tembisa also won something for their contribution to the project.Sasko Siyasizana Day-care Project is an ongoing programme hosted and implemented by Sasko Bread.

USDA launches webpage highlighting resources to help rural communities address the opioid crisis

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development Anne Hazlett today unveiled a new webpage featuring resources to help rural communities respond to the opioid crisis.“While no corner of the country has gone untouched by the opioid crisis, small towns and rural places have been particularly hard hit,” Hazlett said. “The challenge of opioid misuse is an issue of rural prosperity and will take all hands on deck to address. The webpage we are launching today will help rural leaders build a response that is tailored to meet the needs of their community.”The National Center for Health Statistics estimates that more than 63,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2016. More than half of those deaths involved opioids, including prescription drugs and heroin.USDA is playing an important role to help rural communities address this national problem at the local level through program investment, strategic partnerships and best practice implementation.In April 2017, President Donald J. Trump established the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity to identify legislative, regulatory and policy changes that could promote agriculture and prosperity in rural communities. In January 2018, Secretary Perdue presented the Task Force’s findings to President Trump, which included 31 recommendations to align the federal government with state, local and tribal governments to take advantage of opportunities that exist in rural America.In the area of quality of life, the Task Force included a recommendation to modernize health care access. The report highlighted the importance of telemedicine in enhancing access to primary care and specialty providers. The Task Force also found that improved access to mental and behavioral health care, particularly prevention, treatment and recovery resources, is vital to addressing the opioid crisis and other substance misuse in rural communities.last_img read more

Oases of Green Thinking in New Mexico

first_imgA homes tour in the Santa Fe area features properties certified under Build Green New Mexico and LEED for HomesThe Annual GreenBuilt Tour, now in its tenth year, features 25 homes in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Taos, and surrounding areas. Scheduled for May 16 and 17, the tour is a good opportunity to inspect properties that not only earned Build Green New Mexico or LEED for Homes certification when they were completed, but have put their green amenities to the test over time.In other words, these homes are green theory, ingenuity, and materials hard at work.One of the stars of the tour, highlighted recently in the Santa Fe New Mexican, is a home completed in November 2007 in West Basin, a 944-acre conservation community of five homesites on the southwest edge of the Galisteo Basin Preserve.The preserve, a 13,522-acre development and conservation project operated by the nonprofit Commonweal Conservancy, includes other housing projects, one with 20 homesites and another, 300-acre site with 950 homes and mixed-used construction. The development projects are intended to help pay for the Commonweal’s purchase of the remaining 12,000, which will remain publicly accessible open space.The home at West Basin was the first preserve residence to be completed in the preserve, the New Mexican story notes, and it is among the most efficient, operating off the grid by virtue of its 33 PV panels and a 5.1 kW battery installation, as well as walls made with rammed earth and autoclaved aerated concrete blocks.The home includes windows made from fast-growing lyptus wood and vigas rafters harvested from standing dead timber. The building also is equipped with water-efficient appliances and fixtures, a water-permeable driveway to prevent runoff and erosion, and features a deep butterfly roof that channels rainwater into storage tanks.The owners worked with Signer Harris Architects, of Boston, and WoodMetalConcrete, of Santa Fe.last_img read more

first_imgThe much-hyped Indian boxing squad, led by Olympic medal winner Vijender Singh, flopped but the unheralded athletics contingent exceeded expectations when Krishna Pooniya led an unprecedented clean sweep of all the women’s discus medals in the Commonwealth Games on Monday.Baton has passed from me: Milkha | Video: Indian boxers falter in semisPooniya led a historic Indian 1-2-3 by hurling the disc to 61.51m and became the country’s first woman in 52 years to win the gold on a day the Games was rocked by its first doping scandal when woman’s 100m champion gold medallist Osayemi Oludamola of Nigeria returned a positive test for a banned stimulant.Pooniya is the second Indian athlete after Milkha Singh (1958, Cardiff) to garner a gold in track and field events and her title enabled the country to equal its previous-best gold medal haul in Games history. The country had won 30 gold at Manchester eight years ago.She swept the discus event with Harwant Kaur (60.66m) and national record holder Seema Antil (58.46m) bagging the silver and bronze to lift the host country’s tally in athletics to a record seven.However, the story that emerged from the boxing ring was disappointing with Vijender and three others biting the dust in the semis and settling for the bronze.The consolation was the entry of southpaw Suranjoy Singh (52kg), Manoj Kumar (64kg) and Paramjit Samota (+91kg) into the finals after winning their semi final bouts.Suranjoy reached the gold medal round defeating Haroon Iqbal of Pakistan, Manoj Kumar made the title round edging out Valentino Knowles of Bahamas and Samota outpunched F A Junior of Tonga.advertisementThe shock defeat of hot title favourite Vijender led the Indians to lodge a protest with the event’s officialdom after the referee penalised the Indian star towards the fag end of the bout when he led narrowly.Amandeep Singh (49kg), Asian champion Jai Bhagwan (60kg) and Dilbag Singh (69kg) also lost their semi final bouts and had to be content with bronze medals.Women rifle shooters Tejaswini Sawant and Meena Kumari also grabbed the bronze in the women’s 50 metres rifle prone event after logging one point less than the gold and silver medalists.last_img read more

Celebrity Clasico: MS Dhoni’s brace sets up cricketers’ victory over Bollywood stars

first_imgMS Dhoni struck two free-kicks as Virat Kohli-led All Hearts FC thrashed Abhishek Bachchan’s All Stars FC 7-3 in the Celebrity Clasico at the Mumbai Football Arena on Sunday.The match was a continuation of an yearly tradition that started last year, when the game ended 2-2 and it will be played next year as well.Dhoni dazzled once more but this time on a football pitch with two free-kick goals giving All Hearts a 2-0 lead within 40 minutes of the game.Live that super Mahical moment! ?????? pic.twitter.com/cGrjDL5oxr- Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) October 15, 2017While the first goal came from a deflection, the second goal was a thing of beauty — one that Sunil Chhetri, All Hearts manager for the match, would be proud of.It is well known that Dhoni was a footballer before being drawn towards cricket and that showed when he took on the field in the Celebrity Clasico.With the rule of rollover substitution, Dhoni was seen on and off on the pitch which was attributed to the fact that he is flat-footed and has troubles staying in the footballing shoes for too long.Ashish Nehra, the mentor of All Hearts FC, said on the sidelines of the game that Dhoni was the one chatting the most in the dressing room.Even though Dhoni was the fulcrum of the unit and his sense of positioning was for all to see, Virat Kohli with his constant runnings and bundle of energy was a threat at all times.advertisementAfter two of Dhoni’s goals, Anirudh Srikanth, son of former India opener Kris Srikanth, also scored a brace — one being a header and the other a composed penalty.Now @aniruda77’s turn! #CelebrityClasico ?? pic.twitter.com/0hVMTd36Dd- Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) October 15, 2017Besides Anirudh, Kedar Jadhav also scored on a rebound, with his brand-new studs that he bought for the game, after All Stars goalkeeper has stopped a shot from Kohli.Even though Kohli failed to find the net once, his hard work was rewarded in the end as he sealed the match with a beautiful chip, which turned out to be the second last goal of the match.Shikhar Dhawan, in the end, got his name on the scoresheet as he scored from the penalty spot after theopposition’s goalkeeper handled the ball outside the penalty area.For All Stars FC, Shabbir Ahluwalia, Ranbir Kapoor and Armaan Jain scored.MS Dhoni was very calm after scoring the goal!

Lozano showing superstar potential for PSV

first_imgHirving Lozano Lozano showing superstar potential for high-flying PSV Peter McVitie Last updated 1 year ago 16:00 11/25/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Hirving Lozano PSV Getty PSV Excelsior v PSV Excelsior Eredivisie Opinion The 22-year-old has made an immediate impact in Netherlands for a side sitting clear at the top of the Eredivisie PSV knew they were getting something special when they lured Hirving Lozano to Eindhoven, but no one expected such an electrifying start from the 22-year-old.Even those who had witnessed Mexico’s most promising attacker blossom in his homeland with Pachuca were shocked.PSV -1 4/5 v Excelsior Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player “He has been extraordinary, even above the expectations we had,” his former side’s sporting director, Marco Garces, told Marca this month. “We always knew that Hirving was a great player, he had everything to prove it in Europe, but the scoring ability that he has shown is above what he showed here. It fills us with pride.”After knocking back Manchester City to secure immediate first-team football in his first voyage to Europe, the winger quickly emerged as the Eredivisie’s star player and has been nominated for the CONCACAF Player of the Year award after finishing runner-up last time.It took just eight league matches for him to reach a tally of nine goals and three assists and Dutch pundits are already caught up in the excitement of speculating the price a superpower will have to pay to get him after just one season. TV show Studio Voetbal started the estimates at €70 million.Man City are said to still be interested, and Arsenal have reportedly highlighted him as a potential successor to Alexis Sanchez.GFX Info Marco Garces quote Hirving Lozano PSVHirving Lozano Mexico BelgiumJust a few months into his six-year contract, however, Lozano has settled with his family in Netherlands and is just getting started with a team that has taken a surprise hold of first place in the Dutch top flight.Phillip Cocu’s side have collected 33 points from 12 matches, scoring an incredible 38 goals, and Lozano has been a big inspiration.His pace, skill and directness make him a devastating threat, but his neat passes make him useful in building quick attacks and opening chances for others.”Making and creating something, that is of course his greatest quality,” Cocu said in October. “He is still a young player and busy learning all facets of European football.“It’s great to work with him and he has so much quality that he can make a difference.”As Lozano shines amid a flourishing attack, PSV have emerged as a favourite for the Eredivisie title.After last season’s third-place finish, some big summer departures and an early elimination from Europe, a tough campaign was expected for Cocu’s team.Instead, they are on form reminiscent of the Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnadum-led side that lifted the crown in 2014-15 and again have an attack that is proving difficult to contain for Dutch defences.They are eight points clear of main rivals Ajax and 14 ahead of reigning champions Feyenoord, who have won just one of their last nine games in all competitions.A 2-0 loss at Heerenveen in week four has been the only negative for them, but they recovered with a 1-0 win over Feyenoord. A 7-1 trouncing of Utrecht followed and they scored at least three in each of the next five before scraping to last week’s victory at fourth-placed PEC Zwolle.Not focused on dominating possession, instead, quick, fluid attacks are central to PSV and they have the right attackers to make it work.Joint-top of the Eredivisie goal chart with Lozano, Jurgen Locadia is again a vital player after falling in and out of the team in recent years and a lengthy injury spell last term. The PSV academy graduate is dangerous as he lingers in the box, and although he is capable of fabulous goals, his tendency to shoot from distance is frustratingly wasteful.On his third loan spell at the Philips Stadion, Marco van Ginkel has been vital for their attack. The midfielder steams towards opponents’ boxes and picks out team-mates while continuing to chip in with goals – already netting seven this term.Uruguayan attacker Gaston Pereiro and Steven Bergwijn are key in supplying chances to Locadia and Lozano, while Luuk de Jong has become useful again despite his ongoing struggles in front of goal as he helps link the attack together.Hirving Lozano PSVPSV FeyenoordTheir record of 13 goals conceded is a good one at this stage, and Cocu has settled on his ideal back four, while Jorrit Hendrix is impressing at the base of the midfield, but teams like Heerenveen, Feyenoord and PEC have been able to put them under pressure.PSV can be exploited, but Feyenoord showed clear defensive weaknesses last term and stayed top of the table all season.Issues await Cocu’s side, however, as a few injuries will force him to call upon talented but untested youngsters that may struggle to click with their fast attacks.A few slip ups will prove costly as Ajax are showing signs of stabilising after some early wobbles under Marcel Keizer. Like PSV, they are already out of Europe and have a strong enough squad to build on last week’s 8-0 win over NAC Breda. Last year’s Eredivisie and Europa League runners-up need to get either Kasper Dolberg or Klaas-Jan Huntelaar firing regularly up front and improve their pressing, but they will likely pull closer to the frontrunners soon.PSV still have a lot to prove in their bid for the Eredivisie title as they await Ajax to push them further, but with Lozano, Locadia and Co. impressing, they are showing real credentials a third of the way into the campaign.last_img read more

Chelsea fear massive cost of missing out on Champions League

first_imgA harrowing home defeat by Tottenham on Sunday left Chelsea eight points adrift of the Champions League qualification places with seven matches to play. Although the meagre consolation of the Europa League awaits, next season would be the second in three spent outside Europe’s premier club competition. So what could be the ramifications?Finances will take a hitFailure to qualify for the Champions League will affect income, even with the sums generated through Premier League media rights. The club’s most recent financial figures, covering a 2016-17 campaign spent out of Europe altogether, serve as a gauge. They show revenues rose by £32m, yet that was less than half the increase recorded by Manchester United (£82m), Arsenal (£72m) and Manchester City (£66m), who were competing in the Champions League. Match-day incomes fell 6% to £66m and, although the Europa League awaits, those games will not attract the same glitz, glamour or gates. A club who made £193m between 2012 and 2017 from playing in Europe will inevitably suffer another downturn. Share via Email Pochettino used to bow to Chelsea but now Tottenham dictate the terms Listen Share on WhatsApp There will be an impact on retaining key players and the current staffChelsea retained their best players after the trauma of 2015-16 but, two years down the line, concerns centre on their Belgians. Thibaut Courtois enters the last 12 months of his contract in July and, although talks are scheduled to resume in the summer, a goalkeeper consistently linked with a return to Spain may not be quite as keen to re-sign if the immediate future comes without the perk of Champions League football. Eden Hazard’s deal does not expire until 2020, with Chelsea apparently willing to offer him the most lucrative terms in their history, but he seems intent on waiting to see if Real Madrid’s long-standing interest crystallises into a firm offer.Squad strengthening may be harderChelsea thrived in the summer of 2016, prising N’Golo Kanté from Leicester, with David Luiz and Marcos Alonso also added, so they have strengthened without the Champions League factor in the recent past. Theirs is a relatively young setup and hardly in need of a radical overhaul, which is just as well because recruitment would be a challenge. They have spent relatively heavily in recent windows, for all Conte’s complaints, albeit with money recouped for players such as Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic. The problem has arguably been the reluctance to secure stellar arrivals – Conte was after established pedigree – and the size of the revamp instigated in each window, with so many ins and outs. The senior squad hardly feels significantly deeper than it did two years ago. This will be a shorter summer window, crammed largely into the post‑World Cup period, which will bring its own complications to be confronted at present without a technical director. Marina Granovskaia has held informal talks with prospective candidates to replace Michael Emenalo but the club do not appear certain quite what the role will entail. Whether that lack of clarity proves a hindrance remains to be seen. Share on Pinterest Antonio Conte Chelsea Topics Spurs end Stamford Bridge curse as Manchester City close on title – Football Weeklycenter_img Read more features Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Champions League Share on Messenger More pertinently perhaps, so will the club’s reputationIn October Chelsea’s commercial director, Chris Townsend, targeted doubling revenues to more than £650m over the next seven to 10 years “to be a top-four or -five club in Europe [by revenues], rather than ranked eighth”. The aim was to increase the number of sponsors from 12 to between 30 and 35 premium brands, plans considered highly ambitious in a market where clubs such as Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid boast a significant head start. It would, according to Townsend, “allow Chelsea to invest more in players”. Yet will prospective sponsors find Chelsea as attractive without the Champions League? At a time when Roman Abramovich is hoping to push through a £1bn redevelopment of Stamford Bridge, a scheme likely to require significant outside investment, the suspicion that Chelsea have regressed into a club who flit in and out of Europe’s elite competition would be damaging.Will the pursuit of a new head coach be affected?The chances of Antonio Conte remaining next season were remote even if the team achieved a top‑four finish, given his relationship with the hierarchy has long since fractured beyond repair. The Italian was plucked from his national association by a club apparently on their knees but the worry remains that the recruitment of an elite successor may be hampered without Champions League football. Certainly any faint hopes of luring Mauricio Pochettino across the capital would have to be abandoned. Luis Enrique might not be overly concerned at life outside the European elite in the short term but his contract at the Camp Nou in his previous position is understood to have been worth far more than Conte’s £9.5m a season. Thomas Tuchel is apparently not under consideration, though other young coaches may come into the hierarchy’s thinking. A club who go through two-season managerial cycles may have to sell a long-term project to prospective candidates. Share on Facebook Reuse this contentlast_img read more

1 Million to Support African Nova Scotian Learners

first_imgA $1 million investment in African Nova Scotian learners will give students more opportunities to upgrade their skills and provide them with more support in school. The investment is part of government’s new plan for education, Learning for Life II: Brighter Futures Together. Education Minister Jamie Muir made the announcement today, July 20, during a leadership and management conference for African Nova Scotian educators in North Preston, Halifax Regional Municipality. “We’re focused on making investments that directly impact students,” said Mr. Muir. “We’re going to hire more student support workers, increase community college scholarships and work with the Nova Scotia Community College to provide more opportunities for students. All of these initiatives will contribute to a more equitable and accessible education system.” This year’s investment doubles the $500,000 government invested in 2004-05. It is part of a $4.1-million commitment to implement the operational recommendations of the Black Learners Advisory Committee Report on Education over four years. Many recommendations have already been implemented including the establishment of the Council on African Canadian Education and an elected seat on every school board for an African Nova Scotian representative. “This $1-million commitment will allow the Council on African Canadian Education and its partners to build on the work already started toward establishing an Africentric Learning Institute,” said Charles Sheppard, chair of the council. “The first africentric leadership and management training being offered for educators this week is an example of the innovative and unique programs the institute will offer.” Some of the initiatives being implemented in 2005-06 are: The Department of Education and the Council of African Canadian Education have also established a review committee to identify the needs of the Africentric Learning Institute. The committee will review the institute’s structure, role and function within the community, its sustainability and programming, as well as its capital requirements. In December, the committee will make recommendations about what is required to get the institute up and running. $156,000 to aid in the development and delivery of programs for the Africentric Learning Institute $310,000 for school boards to hire eight new student-support workers $90,000 to the Council of African Canadian Education to support its operations $50,000 to implement youth leadership and development programs $30,000 to increase parental involvement in the education system $49,000 to increase Community College Awards by 50 per cent, to $1,800 per student $50,000 for short-term, employment-related training for which students are not eligible to receive student loan support $80,000 to expand adult programming $100,000 to establish a program to enable African Nova Scotian youth to upgrade their skills with the goal of entering community college programs, in partnership with the Nova Scotia Community College $56,000 to continue implementing curriculum that represents a diverse populationlast_img read more

Mamatas remedy

first_imgThe recently concluded strike by West Bengal doctors had many unusual features to it. There is nothing new in irate relatives of patients attacking doctors. Such outbursts keep occurring regularly in different parts of the country. There is nothing new in the affected doctors going on strikes demanding better protection either. What is new this time is the larger political dimension the entire issue assumed in West Bengal. Even as the state was being rocked by post-poll violence with BJP being on the offensive, the ruling party at the Centre opened a new front. When the junior doctors in the state went on a flash strike to protest against serious attack on two of their colleagues by the unruly relatives of a patient who died at NRS Medical College and Hospital on 10 June 2019, BJP saw an opportunity to fish in the troubled waters. The ruling powers at the Centre swung into action. Also Read – A special kind of bondThen something hitherto unheard of happened. On June 13, 2019, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) called for a four-day nationwide protest including a one-day all-India solidarity strike on June 17. On the morning of June 14, meetings were arranged between Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan and no less than half a dozen doctors’ associations in Delhi, where they complained to him about attacks on two of their colleagues in Kolkata. In a highly controversial move, on June 15, while writing a letter to all chief ministers about beefing up security to doctors, Harsh Vardhan also circulated an old 2017 Bill titled Draft Protection of Medical Service Persons and Medical Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss of Property) Act, 2017 as a model bill of sorts. The Bill, however, had been drafted by the IMA and not by the Union Health Ministry, and it prescribed ten years of rigorous punishment to those who assault doctors, almost considering them at par with murderers, and the Bill had not been vetted by the Union Law Ministry or approved by the Cabinet! Also Read – Insider threat managementIn another unusual gesture, the Union Home Ministry under BJP strongman Amit Shah sought reports from the West Bengal government not only about the general political violence in the state but also specifically on the attack on these two doctors. In an equally unusual gesture, on June 15, the AIIMS Doctors’ Association, known to be loyal to Harsh Vardhan, gave a two-day media “ultimatum” to the West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee though they were at a loss to explain what the ultimatum was about. On June 17, from Ahmedabad to Hyderabad, and from Lucknow to Patna, and in Pondicherry and Chandigarh, tens of thousands of doctors went on a strike. In yet another surprise development, the RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat stooped down to the level of a mofussil politician and criticised Mamata personally for the doctors’ strike while addressing the concluding session of a training programme for RSS volunteers at Nagpur on June 17. Are the assaults on doctors by patients’ relatives too widespread and is the entire medical community too incensed to go on a spontaneous strike in solidarity with the striking West Bengal doctors? Is the issue really so serious at all parts of the country that it was snowballing into a major all-India media and political issue? No, not at all! The local IMA chapters and BJP wings among the doctors took care to explain to doctors that there would be no action as the strike enjoyed the indirect support of BJP governments. In this sense, it was an engineered strike. But the dramatic anti-climax happened in Kolkata that day. Mamata Banerjee, sensing the BJP’s larger plan, invited doctors for talks on June 17. Being a consummate political communicator, she even accepted their precondition for live-streaming the meeting. On June 17, the day of the all-India strike, she met with an unusually large delegation of two representatives each from more than 30 hospitals, and in the meeting, she assured them of full protection and accepted almost all their demands. Meanwhile, pressure and public criticism were also mounting against doctors and one patient even died in Malda allegedly in the absence of timely medical attention. The young doctors were not carried away by the unexpected new-found all-India support from BJP but withdrew their strike. BJP, which had hoped to further rake up the issue against Mamata, ended up with egg on its face! The high-point of Mamata’s agreement with doctors was the establishment of complaint redressal cell in each hospital, a sensible institutional option which patients can use to take up their grievances instead of resorting to blind physical violence against doctors. Mamata also directed the police chief to appoint nodal officers to oversee security arrangements for doctors in each hospital, who would be answerable for that. These were the most practical and sensible solutions to the vexing issue. Regarding legislative protection to doctors, Tamil Nadu had already passed an act in 2018 called Tamil Nadu Medicare Service Persons and Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage or Loss to Property) Act, 2008, that made any act of violence against any medical personnel or institution a cognizable non-bailable offence and prescribed imprisonment for a term not less than three years but which may extend to ten years with fine. This itself was called too stringent by rights groups which feared its misuse against poor people and nobody has been punished under it though and there has been no review of its functioning by the Centre either. Instead of proceeding in that direction and drafting a realistic Bill at the ministerial level after consulting the Law Ministry, Harsh Vardhan thought it fit to circulate an unofficial Bill prepared by the IMA that made a mockery of criminal jurisprudence and the principle of proportionality. The young doctors of Bengal remained stuck to their professional concerns and failed to walk into the trap of political manipulation. Mamata Banerjee also outsmarted the BJP in their own political gameplan. (The views expressed are strictly personal)last_img read more

Sienna Miller Visits Refugees In Lebanon

first_imgInternational Medical Corps Global Ambassador Sienna Miller is in Lebanon to raise awareness about the ongoing Syria crisis – now well into its fourth year – and the enormous impact the war is having on both Syrian refugees and the communities in Lebanon that are assisting them.The estimated 1.1 million Syrians in Lebanon now comprise more than one-fourth of the country’s total population, putting a huge strain on Lebanon’s scarce resources. Lebanon hosts more Syrian refugees than any other country.“These Syrian families have lost loved ones, their homes and livelihoods, and witnessed unspeakable horrors,” Miller said. “Throughout the crisis the true First Responders in Lebanon have been the host communities. It is the people of Lebanon who generously provided space, shared food and access to water, opened their health centers and their schools.”“The most vulnerable include pregnant women, and children under the age of five who have not received vaccinations for years during the war. There is also a severe risk of disease outbreaks in the settlements, where access to clean water, hygiene and sanitation is extremely challenging. Groups like International Medical Corps and donors such as the European Commission are achieving incredible things but it is important that the world does not forget about Syria’s refugees or their hosts in Lebanon.”Earlier this year, Miller joined European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response Kristalina Georgieva to launch the First Responders Campaign, a collaboration between International Medical Corps and the European Commission to celebrate humanitarian first responders in places like Lebanon who are saving lives every day.“International Medical Corps and donors such as the European Commission support local communities around the world in being their own best First Responders. I am doing all I can to stand behind these heroic individuals and raise awareness of the lifesaving work they are doing every day.”last_img read more

Tourism to Israel drops dramatically as jittery tourists fearful after Gaza war

by Tia Goldenberg, The Associated Press Posted Sep 28, 2014 3:44 pm MDT Tourism to Israel drops dramatically as jittery tourists fearful after Gaza war with Hamas JERUSALEM – It was supposed to be a record-breaking year for tourist visits to Israel. But all that changed when the 50-day war between Israel and Hamas prompted jittery travellers to cancel trips en masse, leaving empty hotel rooms and barren tourist sites in their wake.The summertime fighting delivered a serious hit to Israel’s thriving tourism industry, causing losses of hundreds of millions of dollars and sparking concern that aftershocks may continue well after the war.“Our challenge is how to prevent more cancellations. Despite a month having passed since the war, there is still an image among tourists that it is not safe to travel here,” said Oded Grofman of the Israel Incoming Tour Operators Association.Israel’s war against Hamas came at the beginning of the peak tourist season, which includes July and August and runs through the Jewish High Holiday season and early winter.Israel launched the war July 8 in response to rocket fire from the Gaza Strip and to destroy a network of tunnels used to attack Israelis. More than 2,100 Palestinians and 72 people on the Israeli side were killed. Israel and Hamas signed a cease-fire on Aug. 26.None of the casualties on the Israeli side occurred in the country’s tourist hubs of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, which endured rocket attacks but were largely protected by the Iron Dome missile defence system. Still, gruesome images of the war beamed around the world scared tourists away. One rocket that landed near Israel’s international airport spurred American and European airlines to suspend flights for 48 hours, sending a chill through the local tourism industry.Before the war, the country hoped for a record-breaking year for tourist visitors. Since the second Palestinian uprising subsided nearly a decade ago, Israel has enjoyed a tourism boom, with as many as 3.6 million foreign visitors to the country last year. Tourism is now an estimated $5 billion industry and provides more than 110,000 jobs in Israel.But the war caused a 31 per cent drop in foreign visitors to Israel during that period compared to 2013, with the decline in August reaching 36 per cent. The amount of visitors during that month was the lowest since February 2009, shortly after fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants. Israel’s Tourism Ministry estimates the losses to be upward of $544 million. A postwar influx of visitors for the Jewish holidays is expected to bring some relief, but not enough to salvage a miserable season.Merchants in Jerusalem’s Old City, a top tourist destination, say they are still feeling the sting. The area’s cobblestone streets are typically filled with tourists purchasing chintzy wares and cheeky T-shirts and visiting the holy sites. But they’ve been eerily empty over the summer.“When the Gaza war started it just went down,” said Kevork Kahvedjian, whose family has run a shop selling old photos in the Old City since 1949. “There were no people at all, none. It was as if there was a curfew or something.” Kahvedjian said his sales declined as much as 90 per cent.Beyond tourists, the war also drove away foreign acts, with many artists slated to perform this summer — among them Neil Young, the Backstreet Boys and Lana Del Rey — pulling out. Singer Lady Gaga did end up performing in front of a crowd of 20,000 people in Tel Aviv, however.The slump in tourism comes amid a wider economic slowdown in Israel, which emerged intact from the 2008 global financial crisis though is now suffering from timid growth. The Bank of Israel has taken measures to stimulate the economy, dropping interest rate levels to 0.25 per cent — the lowest ever — but some economists fear the country may be headed toward a recession. The Gaza war and its side effects may compound the sluggish growth.Mirit Craven Schneider was among the droves of tourists who cancelled trips to Israel because of the war. She was set to spend two weeks touring the country with her husband and three young children in what would have been their first trip to Israel.“Once everything started happening, it was very concerning,” said Craven Schneider, a first grade teacher from Houston, Texas. “We didn’t want to be there with air raid sirens going off, and the kids having to spend time in bomb shelters.”The industry is hoping to bounce back. Israel’s Tourism Ministry is set to launch new campaigns in markets in the U.S., Germany and Russia meant to target niche travellers, including Jewish and Christian communities. This year is largely unsalvageable, but officials hope that the numbers will rise again.“People abroad might feel that things here are unsafe but this is a very, very safe country,” Tourism Minister Uzi Landau said. “This is exactly the kind of perception that we would like to share with all of our potential visitors.”___Follow Tia Goldenberg on Twitter at www.twitter.com/tgoldenberg .

Darfur UN humanitarian officials deplore fatal attack on health workers

On Tuesday, unidentified gunmen ambushed a vehicle about 40 kilometres from Geneina in Kreinik locality which was carrying two health ministry staff and a doctor from the World Health Organization (WHO). The three health workers were unharmed, but the driver and a security official were killed in the attack. The assailants then stole the vehicle and fled the scene. “Insecurity continues to hamper the operations of courageous humanitarian workers in Darfur, as demonstrated by Tuesday’s violent act,” said the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Sudan, Marta Ruedas, as she condemned the attack. “Over 2.5 million vulnerable people in Darfur need some form of humanitarian assistance, yet humanitarian workers are confronted by danger on a daily basis,” she added in a news release.Also deploring the attack was Dr. Naeema Hassan al-Gaseer, WHO Representative in Sudan. “Health services are a pivotal part of all humanitarian work, and we will continue to work tirelessly to provide this basic right to the most vulnerable people in Sudan,” she stated. The health ministry and WHO representatives were working on an ongoing assessment throughout Darfur to ascertain whether guinea-worm disease (dracunculiasis) is still present in Sudan. WHO is currently carrying out random sampling at health facilities and in villages to assess the presence of the parasitic disease, with a view to certifying Sudan as dracunculiasis-free. WHO is the only organization mandated to certify countries as free of the disease.Kreinik locality hosts about 80,000 displaced people, in three main camps. It is one of the localities in West Darfur with the greatest humanitarian needs and many humanitarian organisations travel frequently to the area.Since January 2015 there have been 131 security incidents in Darfur that have affected humanitarian workers and peacekeepers, including abductions, armed attacks, carjackings and crime. read more

BTWObama Satan and Lizard People are Planning to Eat You TTYL

first_imgThe above video is very confusing to me. Apparently the world blew up yesterday because Obama went on an “aeroplane” to visit India. There’s different types of aliens. Some reptilians. Nazis are in there somewhere. The Pope. The tsunami in Indonesia is involved somehow. A space archangel is due to arrive in February. And I think the devil is behind it all–but so is Syria.Yup.But, for me, that’s not even the most confusing part. These are the visions of the mother of the universe Colleen Thomas who is coming to warn us all of impending space slavery. She has a YouTube channel. She also has a radio show and wants you to call her.I was hesitant to even post what seems like the ramblings of an ill woman. But it’s already bouncing around the internet, people are talking about it. But, is this a big joke? Colleen seems pretty put together and in a nice house. Can you go that far off the rails and hold up like that? Also, from a production stand point, this video is a step above the paranoid ramblings you’ll find elsewhere on the YouTubes and Public Access Channels of the world. Just saying–this all seems a little too watchable.OR is Colleen in on the conspiracy and telling us all a little bit of truth slobbered in a whole bunch of wackiness? That way, the powers that be (reptilians, The Pope, bankers, etc.) can remain covered in a shroud of plausible deniability. “You believe we want to harvest your bodies for food? Oh sure, that’s what we want to do. I guess I’ll go ask the Pleidians and Syrians all about it!” Eh?!? Think about it. But which is real and which is foolery? Now we’re back to square-friggin’-one. OR am I in on this whole conspiracy? Are you?Like I said, confusing.last_img read more

Microsoft makes Worlds Most Ethical Companies list Apple Google Facebook dont

first_imgEach year, a list comes out of the  most ethical companies in the world, and there’s a surprising amount of tech companies you’d expect to find on it that are missing. The World’s Most Ethical Companies designation recognizes companies that actually demonstrate “real and sustained ethical leadership within their industry.” So which companies made it? Microsoft was on there, but big names like Facebook, Google, and Apple are not.More than 3,000 companies apply to the Ethisphere Institute’s annual list. Ethisphere ranks them based on factors like history of regulatory infractions, sustainable business practices, and peer nominations. There’s no set number of companies that make the list each year. Thirty-six of this year’s companies are new to the list, and 26 dropped off of the list. “Drop-offs” usually occur due to litigation and ethics violations, as well as increased competition from their industry.In Microsoft’s case, the company started making something they call “Corporate Citizenship” a priority, which honors non-profit organizations to work on strengthening economies, addressing societal challenges, and promoting a healthy online ecosystem, among other things. This helped to follow the negative fallout from its antitrust trials. Microsoft has since donated millions of dollars to non-profits. It also doesn’t hurt that Bill Gates is quite the philanthropist, evidenced after his loss of his position as Fortune’s World’s Richest Man because he donated a chunk of his wealth to charity.As mentioned above, any company that has had significant legal trouble in the last five years are out of the running, which eliminates Google due to the European Union’s antitrust investigation.Besides Microsoft, who else made the list? Tech companies on there include Cisco, eBay, Salesforce, Symantec, Hitachi, Adobe, Teradata, Xerox, GE, and Avaya. Surprisingly, Zappos is listed under the “Internet” category, even though it was bought by Amazon in 2009. Best Buy is listed under “Specialty Retail,” but seems to be the only tech-centric retail store on the list. T-Mobile is listed as a telecom service.Read more at Ethisphere and Business Insiderlast_img read more

City to Consider Impact of Drawdown at Ft Bragg

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The city of Fayetteville, N.C., will use a $300,000 grant from DOD’s Office of Economic Adjustment to assess the economic impact of downsizing at Fort Bragg as the Army shrinks its active-duty end strength from 490,000 to 450,000 soldiers by the end of fiscal 2018.Fort Bragg — home to more than 53,000 personnel — is slated to experience a net loss of 842 soldiers as a result of the Army’s latest round of restructuring.The study will look at the economic impact of troop losses on Fayetteville and Cumberland, Harnett and Hoke counties, Rochelle Small-Toney, a deputy city manager, told the Fayetteville Observer. The grant does not require a match of city funds. The city plans to hire a temporary project manager and a consultant who would work through its Economic and Business Development Department, Small-Toney said.The project is scheduled to be completed by March 2017.last_img read more

Childhood abuse worsens depression in adulthood

first_imgFacing trauma in childhood can significantly change the structure of the brain, which may result in severe depression which could even be recurrent in adulthood, say researchers. The results from MRI scan images suggest that both childhood maltreatment and recurring depression are associated with similar reductions in the surface area of the insular cortex, part of the brain that regulates emotion and self-awareness. This reduction could make a future relapse more likely, said the study, published in The Lancet Psychiatry journal, which found childhood maltreatment one of the strongest risk factors for major depression in adulthood. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Given the impact of the insular cortex on brain functions such as emotional awareness, it’s possible that the changes we saw make patients less responsive to conventional treatments,” said lead researcher Nils Opel from the University of Munster in Germany. The study included 110 patients aged 18 to 60 years. Of the 75 patients who experienced a relapse, 48 had experienced one additional episode, seven reported two episodes, and six experienced three episodes. Fourteen had a remission period of less than two months and could therefore be regarded as having chronic depression. The findings are to develop or improve risk-adapted interventions for people susceptible to a worse long-term clinical outcome. Future research should therefore explore how the findings could be translated into care and treatment that could improve patient outcomes.last_img read more
