A review of observational, theoretical and numerical studies of VLF triggered emissions

first_imgWe review theoretical and numerical studies of VLF triggered emissions generated by manmade signals propagating in the whistler mode in the magnetosphere. Instead of listing all the past studies on the subject we select some of those works which give important ideas and the theoretical basis for future studies. The main purpose of the paper is to clarify what problems remain unresolved and to make suggestions for future studies. We first describe the phenomenon of VLF triggered emissions and give a brief review of experiments and observations. We then summarize the basic physics of VLF wave-particle interactions, which is indispensable for an understanding of the triggering mechanisms. We review important ideas and theories, as well as numerical models so far employed, summarize the present understanding of the phenomenon and consider briefly those problems which need further study. Especially, we focus our attention on numerical simulations whose capabilities in nonlinear physics are increasing with the increasing power of supercomputers.last_img read more

Baker Mayfield ‘frustrated’ by losing, has tense exchange with reporter

first_imgOctober 30, 2019 /Sports News – National Baker Mayfield ‘frustrated’ by losing, has tense exchange with reporter FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPhoto by Allen Kee / ESPN Images(CLEVELAND) — Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield abruptly ended a media session on Wednesday after a reporter asked him about the team’s sense of urgency in last week’s loss to the New England Patriots.Discussing the team’s final possession of the first half of that game, Mayfield told Tony Grossi, a reporter for 850 WKNR, an ESPN Radio affiliate in Cleveland to “Stop saying ‘but.’ I just told you the clock was running and we had a penalty.”“You want to give them the ball back? No. You don’t play, you don’t know it. That’s just plain and simple.”When asked if he was pleased with the drive, Mayfield got agitated, saying “Was I happy with the drive? No, we didn’t score points. The dumbest question you could ask. What? Jesus, Tony.”Minutes later, Mayfield tweeted about the situation. “Don’t call it emotional when it’s convenient and passion when it fits. I care about winning, so yeah I’m frustrated.”“If I was to act like it’s okay to lose, then y’all would say I’ve gotten complacent. My sense of urgency is at an all time high,” Mayfield said. “And if I offend anybody along the way…that’s too bad.”The Browns have disappointed to start the season, winning just two of their first seven games. That after the team was a trendy pick to win the AFC North division. Mayfield, meanwhile, has been at the center of those struggles, having thrown the most interceptions of any quarterback this season. Cleveland faces the Denver Broncos on the road this Sunday.

USS Coronado wraps up operational testing of COBRA

first_img April 24, 2018 US Navy littoral combat ship USS Coronado (LCS 4) has successfully completed operational testing of the Coastal Battlefield Reconnaissance and Analysis (COBRA) System, the navy has announced.This second phase of testing for Coronado, which began shortly after completion of developmental testing, Feb. 22, involved in port and underway operations with support from Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 21 and Mine Countermeasure Detachment 6.“The crew onboard was the perfect fit to conduct this testing,” said Danny Lunden, test director for Mine Countermeasure Mission Package, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division. “We all worked so well together and did so in such a short amount of time.”The operational testing included identifying possible landing zones for amphibious forces, detecting mines, and locating obstacles that would prevent forces from entering mission critical areas.Personnel used both an MQ-8B Fire Scout and a MH-60 Sierra to process information and plan beach zone operations. As well, the testing required an upgrade to the Fire Scout and Mission Package Computing Environment to support the coastal mine reconnaissance missions.Designated LCS testing ships, of which Coronado is one, are single-crewed and focus solely on testing hardware, software and concepts of operations for specific mission modules in order to develop the best tactics and doctrine within each ship’s specified warfare area.Sailors assigned to the test ships say they are excited to be part of shaping the future of LCS.“This was an incredible and ground-breaking experience for myself and the mission package detachment,” said Chief Mineman Lindsey Wolghemuth, mine detachment chief petty officer. “We get to see how LCS can not only rapidly respond, but how diverse each mission can be on each platform.” Authorities USS Coronado wraps up COBRA coastal mine detection system operational testing View post tag: US Navy View post tag: LCS View post tag: Cobra Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Coronado wraps up COBRA coastal mine detection system operational testing Share this articlelast_img read more

US Navy sets up CMV-22B Osprey COD wing

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today CMV-22B Osprey Carrier Onboard Delivery wing set up in San Diego Share this article Authorities October 11, 2019, by The US Navy established Fleet Logistics Multi-Mission Wing (COMVRMWING) 1 in a ceremony aboard Naval Air Station North Island, San Diego, on October 10.Capt. Dewon Chaney assumed command of the new wing and will be the first commodore to take on the integration and implementation of the CMV-22B Osprey into fleet operations.The mission for the wing will be to conduct high priority cargo and passenger transport services in support of aircraft carrier strike groups and task forces.“Sailors and Marines have worked hard to ensure the mission capability of these aircraft, and the opportunity to lead this group is a privilege,” said Chaney, a career helicopter pilot with extensive experience piloting four different Navy aircraft. “This community’s stand up is a joint endeavor, and will bring unmatched capability to a carrier strike group near you.”The CMV-22B Osprey is a variant of the MV-22B and is the replacement for the C-2A Greyhound for the Carrier Onboard Delivery (COD) mission. The Osprey is a tiltrotor aircraft that can take off and land as a helicopter but transit as a turboprop aircraft, and the airframe recently surpassed the threshold of 500,000 flight hours.Osprey, with its increased range, speed and payload capabilities will provide the Navy with significant increases in capability and operational flexibility over the C-2A, which has served the fleet since 1965. CMV-22B operations can be either shore-based, expeditionary or sea-based.Vice Adm. DeWolfe Miller, commander, Naval Air Forces, was the principal speaker at the event and said Naval Aviation is peaking, and the carrier air wing of the future is coming soon.“The aircraft carrier remains the centerpiece of naval power, and carrier strike groups bring unparalleled power to the fight” said Miller, the Navy’s ‘Air Boss’. “No other weapons system has the responsiveness, endurance, battlespace awareness, and command and control capabilities of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, its embarked air wing and accompanying ships.”Miller continued to say that as our adversaries evolve, so must our ships, aircraft training and tactics; the COD mission has played a pivotal role for carriers since the first TBM Avenger in World War II, and the C-2 Greyhound has filled that role admirably since 1965.“The CMV-22 Osprey is not only part of our future,” emphasized Miller. “It’s part of our ‘now’ that’s going to be provided in every subsequent squadron that transitions.”A year ago, the Navy established the first CMV-22 squadron (VRM-30) and plans are in the works to establish a sister squadron on the east coast.The first deployment for VRM-30 is currently planned for 2021 aboard USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), and officials say the complete transition from the venerable Greyhound to the newer and more modern CMV-22B Osprey is expected by 2028.Photo: Bell Boeing View post tag: US Navycenter_img CMV-22B Osprey Carrier Onboard Delivery wing set up in San Diego View post tag: CMV-22 View post tag: Cod navaltodaylast_img read more

Something doesn’t smell right

first_imgFor most animals, the scent of rotting meat is powerfully repulsive. But for others, such as carrion-feeding vultures and insects, it’s a scent that can be just as powerfully attractive.The question of why some animals are repelled and others attracted to a particular scent, scientists say, gets at one of the most basic and poorly understood mysteries in neuroscience: How does the brain encode likes and dislikes?Harvard scientists say they’re closer to unraveling that question with the discovery of the first receptors in any species evolved to detect cadaverine and, two of the chemical byproducts responsible for the distinctive — and to most creatures repulsive — smell of rotting flesh. The study is described in a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.“This is the first time we’ve identified a receptor for these chemicals,” said Associate Professor of Cell Biology Stephen Liberles, a senior author of the paper. “The larger question we’re interested in is: What does it mean that something is an aversive or attractive odor? How are likes and dislikes encoded in the brain? Understanding the receptors that respond to those cues could give us a powerful inroad to understanding that.”Graduate School of Arts and Sciences student Zecai Liang with Liberles in his lab. Liberles is trying to unravel the scent question: How are likes and dislikes encoded in the brain?Though researchers have long understood that olfaction involves receptors, which detect odors and in turn activate brain neurons, Liberles, together with Nobel laureate Linda Buck, recently discovered a second family of receptors, dubbed trace amine-associated receptors, or TAARs.Though fewer in number than other odorant receptors — mice, for example, have 15, versus more than 1,000 odorant receptors, while humans have 350 receptors and just six TAARs — Liberles said the functions of the TAARs remained largely unknown.“We knew they were olfactory receptors, but we didn’t know what ligands might activate them,” Liberles said of the TAARs. “We know in the taste system there are different families of receptors for bitter and sweet, so we thought the TAARs might be doing something specific in olfaction.”To understand how the TAARs function, researchers sought to identify scents that would activate them, hoping they might offer clues into why a second olfactory system evolved. In recent years, scientists working in Liberles’ lab identified odors that activated six TAARs in mice and seven in rats, nearly all of which were highly aversive.To check TAARs in fish, Liberles’ team worked with colleagues in Germany to implant olfactory receptors in cell cultures and test them against hundreds of possible odorants, hoping to identify which ones activated the receptor.What the researchers discovered, Liberles said, was that one particular receptor appeared to act as a sensor for diamines — a class of chemicals that include cadaverine and putrescine — nearly all of which are notoriously foul-smelling. Later tests using live zebrafish showed that when researchers marked part of a fish tank with the scent of rotting fish, the fish were highly likely to avoid the area.“What’s also interesting is that this odor — like the predator odor we identified in mice — was aversive the very first time the animal encountered it,” Liberles said. “That suggests the aversion is innate — it’s not learned — and that it involves genetic circuits that are genetically predetermined, that exist, dormant, in the animal waiting for it to encounter the odor.“You might like the smell of baking cookies, but it’s only because you’ve learned to associate it with their taste, or the sugar rush you get from eating them,” he continued. “But this aversion is there from birth. That suggests there is some developmental mechanism underlying these circuits. The question is, what is that?”Though researchers have thus far only shown that the TAARs are activated by amines, Liberles said it’s unlikely that is their only role in olfaction.“We’ve been hunting for a unified theme for what the TAARs might be doing,” he said. “One model is that they’re amine receptors, and another is that they’re all encoding for aversion. I don’t think either is quite correct. I think they may have started as amine receptors, but they have since evolved to do other things.”Understanding how odorants like cadaverine and putrescine work in the olfactory system could also shed light on why some scents — such as rotting meat — repel some creatures, but attract others.“Species-specific behavioral responses suggest that somehow the neural circuits are changing from species to species,” Liberles said. “For instance, tests in our lab have shown that trimethylamine is attractive to mice, but highly aversive to rats. Something similar might be happening with cadaverine.“How does that happen? It’s not known,” he continued. “We don’t understand, as a field, how aversive and attractive odors are differentially processed … but identifying the receptor gives us a handle on the neural circuits that are involved. Now that we have the receptor, we can ask basic questions about aversion and attraction circuitry in general. From there, we can begin to understand how attractive and aversive stimuli are differentially encoded, and cadaverine is about as aversive as you can get.” <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaC2P7IU8dU” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://img.youtube.com/vi/oaC2P7IU8dU/0.jpg” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a>last_img read more

To improve bicycle safety, crash reports need to capture more data

first_imgHarvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health researchers are calling upon police in all states to improve their reporting of crashes involving vehicles and bicycles, according to a new study. Currently, details on crashes are handwritten by police on paper and there are few bicycle-relevant codes. The researchers are calling for police to use electronic tablets that would include more options to gather bicycle-specific data, such as drawings of the scene and additional codes that could indicate, for example, if the bicyclist was riding inside a painted bike lane and ran into a driver’s open car door. This detailed information about each vehicle/bicycle crash could be automatically uploaded into spreadsheets for later analysis. Analysis, especially when combined with big data, could then guide the building of safer bicycle environments, encouraging more people to cycle, the authors said.The study was published online April 2, 2015 in Injury Prevention.“Self-driving cars have been invented and apps tell cyclists of approaching vehicles but the vehicle/bicycle crash details are still hand written and drawn on the police crash report template, making crash analysis labor-intensive. To equal other technological advancements and improve the safety of bicyclists, multiple bicycle-crash-scene codes should be created for immediate data entry,” said co-author Anne Lusk, research scientist in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard Chan.

Students, faculty remember Cathy Pieronek

first_imgLast Thursday, Catherine “Cathy” Pieronek, an associate dean in the College of Engineering and the director of the women’s engineering program, passed away suddenly at the age of 52.According to College of Engineering Dean Peter Kilpatrick, Pieronek proved to be a champion of the women engineers on Notre Dame’s campus, but also on a national level. Students have recalled her dedication to the engineers and also to the school as a campus leader who sought to continually improve the University and, specifically, the College of Engineering.In an email, Kilpatrick described one of Pieronek’s large contributions to the women’s engineering program that dealt with residence halls. When Pieronek joined the engineering faculty in 2002, female enrollment in the college was lower than it was now, and each women’s residence hall only had “one to two” engineers living in it.“This meant that women who wanted to study with their classmates and other engineers would have to go to another residence hall (often a male residence hall) and when the parietals require women students leaving male dorms at midnight (despite whether the homework or studying was all finished), this placed a hardship on the women engineering students,” he said.“So Cathy, in concert with others in the College, got [the Office of Residence Life] to start clustering women engineers in fewer dorms so women could develop natural study partners in their own residence hall. This strategy, and many others, has led to a dramatic increase in both the retention and the numbers and percentages of women in engineering here at Notre Dame. We are now well over 30 percent, a remarkable increase in the last 10-plus years. Cathy played by far the dominant role in this transformation.”Kilpatrick and others recalled her tendency to be extremely direct with students in her role as an advisor.“I have so many memories of Cathy, but perhaps my favorite memory was when I shared with her recently how grateful a parent was for the direct and forceful advice that Cathy gave his son on the occasion of struggling academically and disciplinarily and the way the young man had been able to turn things around with Cathy’s support and encouragement,” he said. “Cathy gave me a simple ‘aw, shucks’ response and immediately deflected the accolade.“This was classic Cathy. She did what she did for our students because she was deeply committed and cared about them as persons. In this regard, Cathy taught us how to be fully human and fully Christian.”Senior Cecilia Ruiz said she met Pieronek when she was a first-year engineering student and member of the First Year Engineering Council.“What I remember the most is her passion to education and her devotion to her students,” Ruiz said in an email. “She touched many lives with her advice and picked up many of us who struggled through some of our semesters.“Always understanding, but firm, she encouraged me to continue in my endeavors and challenged all whose lives she touched to be the best version of themselves. I can’t think of a better role model to follow as an aspiring female aerospace engineer, and I am grateful for her presence in my life.”Senior Maggie Miller said her relationship with Pieronek began during her freshman year. She said Pieronek took an interest in her summer job with Notre Dame’s Introduction to Engineering Program and talked to her frequently throughout the summer.“Most of the conversations we would have were about how we could make the College better, how we could improve the perception of engineers on campus,” Miller said in an email. “This was especially pertinent to me as I have been heavily involved with various performing arts groups during my time at Notre Dame, and Cathy always took a surprising interest in this and in other students that were leaving their mark on campus in areas other than engineering. She wanted us to feel like we were students and to get away from seeing ourselves as nerds who could only sit in their rooms and study.“She fought relentlessly for the students in the College, and even though she was often very hard on struggling students they were always better for it. Tough love was definitely her approach, but it was in fact a deep love that she showed the students.”Miller said Pieronek was especially important for the women of the College, which she witnessed firsthand as a student representative on the College of Engineering Council.“I remember in one meeting looking around and realizing that Cathy and myself were the only women in the room of 20 or so other people, and Cathy always played a large role in running those meetings,” Miller said. “She became someone I very much wanted to emulate in her confidence and in her caring.”Senior Ryan Griffin said Pieronek cared about all her students in the College of Engineering, which led to a tough but rewarding mentoring style.“She expected you to own up to your mistakes and act like an adult,” Griffin said in an email. “But if you were capable of doing that, Cathy would match you every step of the way working with you, teachers, the department, advisors, you name it, in order to help you succeed. She was also an incredible mentor to the students who got close to her.“Those of us who were lucky enough to call her a mentor will forever treasure the advice she gave us and carry her words with us in our careers.”Tags: Cathy Pieronek, College of Engineering, SWE, Women’s engineeringlast_img read more

Joint Operation Dismantles Criminal Alliance Between ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, FARC in Panama

first_img Cooperative framework to fight crime In recent years, Panamanian authorities have focused on fighting money laundering to protect the country’s financial sector. By Dialogo December 11, 2015 And they said it wasn’t so. Juanpa assures us the FARC are angels, that they don’t have even a cent for victim reparations, shame on them. MAY MEXICO FREEDOM PEACE AND JUSTICE While the peace talks continue, these Colombian “FARC” terrorists go on committing crimes here and outside of Colombia and if that weren’t enough, they’re raising the cost of services and the VAT to support these scoundrels paid for by us, the Colombians.Definitely, President Santos, you’ve screwed the country up. The cynicism of the “Colombian revolutionary forces” FARC, is unheard of. How can a group call itself revolutionary when it is clearly a drug trafficking group? I am, openly, in favor of the peace process airing in Havana, Cuba. I maintain hope that in the FARC group there are still idealists who want a decent homeland, respectful of civil rights and a democratic model of governance. They themselves should denounce the drug traffickers comfortably embedded in their ranks. The rest of us, the Colombians, openly and sincerely, will unite to fight them.Germán Sánchez Bernal If these FARC bandits aren’t going to go to jail for all the crimes they have it’s useless while someone goes to jail for stealing a soup packet from a supermarket to make broth to satisfy their hunger. Which of the two has committed more crimes, it’s anyone’s guess. It’s urgent for the communities to pressure their government leaders to unite in their actions and once and for all get rid of this scourge. It is important that those responsible in each country set up rules to keep public officials from getting involved in this scourge which are drugs. If that were to happen, an official would be banned for life from any public activity And where do you think the insurgent groups go to finance the wars. To the black market for all kinds of things: mining, oil, gas, weapons, drugs very interesting… What does your sour puss comment have to do with the article??? Where the laws are useless against those who steal the money from a country and go in pursuit of more money to be able to pay for their whims. MY FRIENDS, IT IS MY PERSONAL OPINION THAT WE WOULD SPEND LESS MONEY ON LEGALIZING THE USE AND CONSUMPTION OF DRUGS, BECAUSE I SEE AT THE RATE WE’RE GOING, IT’S A WAR WITH NO END. LET’S DO A WORLD-WIDE STUDY AND YOU’LL SEE I’M RIGHT. These terrorists have hurt us too much to be allowed to go on as if they had done nothing FOR GOD’S SAKE! SOMEONE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE DAMN DRUGS THAT ARE KILLING OUR YOUTH The news are very good If controlling the mafias by legalizing the production and sale of alcohol helped the USA by taxing them and this way strengthening the economy. Why don’t they legalize drugs, tax them, and sell them all over the place and they’ll put an end to so-called micro-trafficking and with this revenue increase health services for the people and this way control the evil that can come from using drugs, I let you ponder. The fewer fleas a dog has, the less he scratches Interesting articles in the magazine starting in 2016. Congratulations. Coca leaves are used as medicine. Unscrupulous people are the ones who use it for evil, in order to profit. Nothing can ever be done because the big countries are the main consumers and in addition they are the ones who move this whole mafia, the money from this business is what moves all the countries together. No matter how many strict laws we pass it will never change. The powerful traffickers are the big governments, that is why drug trafficking will never end. SOS for the drug addicts. This scourge that is overwhelming humanity and dragging us evermore toward destruction will have to be stopped. If not, we might end up exterminating the human race as a whole, since human ambition has no limits. What has been stated is very good Go hard on that crime against humanity MY FRIENDS.- THE WAR AGAINST DRUGS IS USELESS TOO MUCH EFFORT IS MADE, THEY HAVE BEEN FOUGHT FOR MANY YEARS AND THEY WILL CONTINUE TO BE FOUGHT AND WILL NEVER BE STOPPED COMPLETELY, THE EASIEST WAY TO FIGHT THIS EVIL IS A WORLD-WIDE DETAILED STUDY TO LEGALIZE DRUGS I hope the same is done in Bolivia in order to improve its image. I take this opportunity to say to national authorities that coca has never been millenary. It’s true that they used it just for rituals but not to consume because it was prohibited by a decree from the Inca. Bolivia has many natural resources that are not exploited due to a lack of support for investment. The exploitation of agriculture with advanced technology is a solution to capture financial resources that would help my country grow. Very good and great. That hurts youth eradicate that junk Legislating the use of cocaine would put an end to those large businesses since the price would go down and those who hold large quantities would have everything tumble down and they would lose large amounts of money. If someone wants to hurt themself, it’s their issue because cigarettes are as harmful as cocaine. God willing that the current authorities aren’t mixed up with drug trafficking and the ministries don’t shield them. That is the worst evil for the development of countries because those who have financial power seek political power to violate the rights of the citizens. It’s not enough we still have to fight on all fronts Good news, dismantle criminal gangs. IT IS TIME TO PUT AN END TO ORGANIZED CRIME WHICH IS HURTING OUR SOCIETY SO BADLY This subject, more than politics, the military and the economy, needs something better; such as for example having sophisticated means and material that monitor conversations by politicians, economists, etc. etc. everyone. Since it’s impossible to control drug trafficking through all its channels, there is, it is possible to speak of the extraterrestrial invasion which truly is an undoubtable presence in the world. Just as now where they try to hide these facts, they also try to hide monitoring drug trafficking. The question is why aren’t they controlled, who benefits from these cases and why. Otherwise let’s develop sustainable projects with drugs and vitamins derived from coca, because they would benefit in particular poor countries very much. And, let’s stop investing so much money in things politicians, investors and multinational institutions cannot control.Sincerely,ANONYMOUS Propper information which prevents crime How can it be that there is no follow up in Colombia of all suspicious foreign nationals who enter the country seeking drug negotiations, who function as links with drug cartels abroad, particularly in Mexico To foster continuing cooperation in the fight against transnational organized crime, Mexico and Panama approved a memorandum of understanding on November 25. The Mexico-Panama High-Level Group document, which was signed by Min. Aguilera and Mexican Internal Affairs Secretary Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong, spells out a cooperative framework for the countries to work together on public security, intelligence, international security and terrorism, legal cooperation and justice, crime prevention, customs, and immigration. Following a joint, 18-month investigation, Panamanian authorities announced on November 4th the arrest of 50 suspects allegedly engaged in drug trafficking or money laundering for the Sinaloa Cartel – the world’s largest transnational criminal organization – or the FARC. Two Mexicans residing in a wealthy part of the Panamanian capital allegedly served as the go-between in drug deals between the two organizations, and that connection led authorities to dismantle the network, Panama National Police Commissioner Omar Pinzón told local and international journalists. Panamanian security forces confiscated two tons of cocaine, $500,000 in cash, five go-fast boats, and 40 cars during the operation. The cooperation among the three countries “allowed us to dismantle this gang which, we have proven, was led by El Chapo Guzmán from Sinaloa,” Panamanian Minister of Public Security Rodolfo Aguilera stated. El Chapo has been wanted in Mexico and the United States in connection with drug trafficking, homicide, and other crimes since escaping from a maximum-security prison in Mexico in July. Panamanian security authorities said he hasn’t been seen in Panama. “We detected Mexican drug cartels with connections to the FARC,” Commissioner Pinzón said. “Security operations such as the one that uncovered the nexus between El Chapo and Panama are the result of the mutual trust that has been established among the various governments, which has allowed us to share accurate and timely security information.” In cooperation with Colombian and Mexican authorities, Panamanian security forces captured dozens of suspects who were allegedly part of a criminal partnership between the Sinaloa Cartel, led by drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia’s (FARC) 30th Front. “We in Panama comply with all rules established by the International Financial Action Task Force (FATF-GAFI) to shield our financial system and keep it from being used by criminals for their illegal activities,” Donadío said.last_img read more

Elder Law Section, FAWL support gay adoption lobbying

first_imgElder Law Section, FAWL support gay adoption lobbying Elder Law Section, FAWL support gay adoption lobbying Senior Editor The Bar’s Elder Law Section and the Florida Association for Women Lawyers have become the latest organizations to endorse the Family Law and Public Interest Law sections’ request to lobby for the repeal of the Florida law that bans gays from adopting.The FAWL executive council at a recent meeting endorsed a resolution supporting the two sections, which want both to repeal the gay adoption ban and adopt a best-interest-of-the-child standard.The Elder Law Section Executive Council decided at its October 4 meeting to support the two sections’ request to push their position at the legislature.The matter is pending before the Bar Board of Governors, which exercises a general oversight of lobbying by sections. The two sections presented their case to the Bar Legislation Committee in August, but the committee tabled the matter with members saying they were concerned the matter raised deep philosophical differences among Bar members.Under Bar policies, sections, which have voluntary membership and dues payments, are given wide latitude on subjects they wish to lobby. Those positions must not contradict a Bar-wide legislative position, and must not create deep philosophical divisions among Bar members. The sections must also make it clear they are representing only themselves and not the Bar as a whole.Legislation Committee members said they were not concerned with the propriety of repealing the ban on gay adoptions and having a best-interest-of-the-child standard, but were worried that the repeal issue could create deep philosophical divisions. Members suggested the two sections approach other sections for their views and support their contention that seeking the repeal would not produce deep philosophical divisions.The Public Interest Law and Family Law sections had planned to take their case to sections during the Bar’s General Meeting, but that was postponed because of hurricanes, and most sections did not meet during the rescheduled meeting.Evan Marks, chair of the Family Law Section, said the two sections have sent letters to other sections asking them to look at the issue.“Our goal is not to get every section to say that the gay adoption law should be repealed, although if they did, that would be wonderful,” he said. “At the very least we would like the sections to say this is not so divisive within a substantial section of The Florida Bar as to prohibit the Family Law Section from lobbying.”Marks said he was happy that FAWL and the Elder Law Section had acted. He noted the section executive council not only supported PILS and the Family Law Section lobbying the issue, but concluded that the issue was not divisive of Bar members. Both section actions were by unanimous vote.The Family Law Section has posted information about the issue at its Web site, www.familylawfla.org. The date includes 11 major organizations, from the American Medical Association to the American Psychiatric Association, that support gay adoptions.Marks said he doesn’t think the gay adoption issue is any more divisive than the Bar’s support a few years ago of merit appointments for all trial judges and its recent vote to oppose Amendment 3 — which limited contingency fees in medical malpractice actions — on the November 2 ballot.He also noted that as this News went to press, the Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors was scheduled to debate the issue, and make a recommendation for the Board of Governors’ December meeting.So far, although several individual lawyers have contacted Bar leaders and written letters to the editor in the Bar News, no legal organization has voted to oppose the two sections’ requests, Marks said.Aside from the Elder Law Section and FAWL, the two sections’ efforts have also been endorsed by the Equal Opportunities Law Section and the Bar’s Legal Needs of Children Committee.

The Key States Biden Won en Route to the White House

first_imgUpdated Nov. 7, 2020, 7:37 p.m. ET And although it took days to learn who had won and the race was quite close, Pennsylvania indeed proved critical to the outcome. As expected, Mr. Trump jumped out to an early lead, thanks to ballots cast on Election Day, but Mr. Biden clawed back slowly and eventually overtook Mr. Trump as more and more absentee ballots were counted.- Advertisement – Florida (29 Electoral College votes)Perhaps no state was more closely watched this cycle than Florida, and the results there almost immediately dashed Democrats’ hopes of a blue landslide. Mr. Trump won the state by a significantly wider margin than he did in 2016, despite polling averages that showed him trailing before Election Day.More than half of the counties in Florida swung further right than they did four years ago. And although Mr. Biden did make gains in some areas of the state, he vastly underperformed in Florida’s most populous county, Miami-Dade, especially in precincts with a majority Hispanic population.Iowa (six votes), Ohio (18 votes) and Texas (38 votes)Optimistic Democrats hopeful for a blue wave saw Iowa, Ohio and Texas as potentially in play this cycle, but that proved to be wishful thinking. Mr. Trump thumped Mr. Biden by significant margins in all three conservative-leaning states, winning them for a second time.Of the three, Texas, where the president won by roughly six percentage points, ended up being the closest. Even as some white voters in urban and suburban areas moved in large numbers toward Democrats, many Hispanic voters in the Rio Grande Valley shifted decisively toward Mr. Trump.Nick Corasaniti and Reid J. Epstein contributed reporting. An initial look at county-level data suggests that Mr. Biden ran ahead of Mrs. Clinton’s performance in 2016 in most parts of the state. He showed particular strength in the suburbs around Philadelphia, an area that had been trending blue in 2016 and has only grown bluer since. He flipped the state back into the Democratic column with 37,000 more votes than Mr. Trump.Michigan (16 votes) and Wisconsin (10 votes)Four years ago, Mr. Trump became the first Republican presidential candidate to win either Michigan or Wisconsin in decades when he defeated Mrs. Clinton by roughly 33,000 votes in both states combined.From the start of Mr. Biden’s presidential campaign all the way to Election Day, he and his team believed that rebuilding the Democratic “blue wall” in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania would perhaps be the clearest and cleanest path to winning the White House. Mr. Biden also believed that the Democratic Party had to garner support from working-class and middle-class voters in Northern industrial states — those from families like the one he grew up in.- Advertisement – After days of vote counting, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. has amassed the 270 Electoral College votes he needed to secure the presidency.All along, it was clear that Mr. Biden’s path to victory involved flipping a handful of states that then-candidate Donald J. Trump won in 2016 while also retaining the states that Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee in 2016, won in that cycle.- Advertisement – In Michigan, a spike in turnout in Detroit and its wealthy suburbs, along with shrinking support for Mr. Trump among middle-class voters, helped secure the state for Mr. Biden. About two-thirds of the predominately white counties that backed Mr. Trump in 2016 moved somewhat left four years later, and a greater share of voters in those counties backed Mr. Biden than they supported Mrs. Clinton in 2016.Battleground States Biden Kept That strategy paid off, as Mr. Biden rode the support in Wisconsin’s cities and suburbs to victory. He was aided particularly by massive turnout in Dane County (home to Madison) and he ate into Mr. Trump’s margins in the Milwaukee suburbs.center_img New Hampshire (14 votes)The Cook Political Report considered New Hampshire competitive with a Democratic lean, and it was tightly contested in 2016. But Mr. Biden won handily, by seven percentage points, and the race was called relatively quickly. Though there were many twists and turns, Mr. Biden appears to have done exactly that. Here is a quick look at the key states he won, and what we know about why he won them.States Biden FlippedPennsylvania (20 Electoral College votes)Pennsylvania has been in the spotlight for months, and it was long considered a potential “tipping-point state” — the state where victory could determine the outcome of the entire presidential contest. Elections officials had signaled all along that it would take time to count the votes there, and that a final tally would not be available on election night. Mr. Trump won the state by less than one percentage point in 2016, but polls had Mr. Biden ahead in the run-up to Election Day. Noteworthy States Biden Lost Minnesota (10 Electoral College votes)Mr. Trump came surprisingly close to a victory in Minnesota four years ago, and his campaign poured significant resources into the state this cycle in hopes of flipping it. Nonetheless, Mr. Biden maintained a comfortable if not insurmountable lead in Minnesota throughout much of the race, and polling there ended up being pretty spot on.Mr. Biden won comfortably, by about seven percentage points. He ran up the margins in densely populated urban counties and made significant inroads in the suburban counties that Mr. Trump won in 2016.Nevada (Six votes)Mr. Biden managed to hang onto Nevada, a state Mrs. Clinton won in 2016, but it was a nail-biter that took days to decide. Like Mrs. Clinton, he did it by winning Clark and Washoe Counties, home to Las Vegas and Reno, which account for over 85 percent of the state’s total votes. His margin of victory in Clark County was down slightly from the margin in 2016, but it was up in Washoe. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Marijuana ‘may be worse than cigarettes for cardiovascular health’

first_imgMedical News Today 9 August 2017Family First Comment: So much for it being a “harmless substance that just makes you feel good and doesn’t harm anyone….”www.saynopetodope.nzPeople who use marijuana may be three times more likely to die from high blood pressure than non-users of the drug, a new study finds.The researchers say that their findings indicate that marijuana use is a greater risk factor for poor cardiovascular health than cigarette smoking.Lead study author Barbara A. Yankey, of the School of Public Health at Georgia State University in Atlanta, and her team recently reported their results in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.High blood pressure, or hypertension, arises when the force of blood pushing against the blood vessel walls becomes too high.Around 75 million people in the United States – or 32 percent of the U.S. population – have high blood pressure.High blood pressure can increase the likelihood of stroke and heart disease, and in 2014, the condition was the main or contributing factor in more than 410,000 deaths in the U.S.Cigarette smoking is a well-established risk factor for high blood pressure and poor cardiovascular health, but according to the new study from Yankey and team, marijuana use may be even more harmful.Death from hypertension increased threefoldThe researchers came to their findings by analyzing the data of 1,213 adults aged 20 and older, all of whom had participated in the 2005-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.As part of the survey, subjects were asked whether they had ever used marijuana, and if so, the age at which they first used the drug. Information on cigarette use was also collected.In order to calculate the duration of marijuana use among participants, the researchers subtracted the age at first marijuana use from subjects’ current age.Using 2011 data from the National Center for Health Statistics, the researchers assessed whether or not marijuana use might influence the risk of death from hypertension, heart disease, and cerebrovascular disease.READ MORE: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/318854.phplast_img read more

Duke prevails at Path Valley for third straight PASS win

first_imgMike Alleman grabbed the early lead but just as the leaders were moving into heavy traffic, a lap seven caution bunched the field. On the restart, Duke, who had moved from sixth starting position into third, shot to the front.  Nick Sweigart, Jake Frye and Alleman rounded out the top five.  Feature results – 1. Ken Duke Jr.; 2. Doug Dodson; 3. Nick Sweigart; 4. Jake Frye; 5. Mike Alleman; 6. Zachery Newlin; 7. Tyler Cochran; 8. Drew Ritchey; 9. John Fiore; 10. Devin Adams; 11. Kyle Ganoe; 12. John Walp; 13. Brad Mellott; 14. Cale Reigle; 15. Colton Hoover; 16. Terry Schaeffer; 17. Donnie Hendershot; 18. Keith Prutzman; 19. Dave Wickham; 20. Jim Kennedy; 21. Dave Graber; 22. Ryan Lynn. SPRING RUN, Pa. (April 13) – Ken Duke Jr. preserved his 2019 Pennsylvania Sprint Series winning streak Saturday night, winning the 20-lap feature race at Path Valley Speedway more than four tenth’s of a second over Doug Dodson.  The longest green-flag run of the night followed a lap nine restart and Duke made it through traffic well enough to keep his challengers at bay. Terry Schaeffer got into the turn three wall with two laps remaining, but on the restart, Duke chose the middle lane and held off the outside-running Dodson for the win.  The second-place finish was also the season’s best for Dodson, a PASS rookie with extensive experience in other sprint car divisions and super sportsman. This year’s large PASS/IMCA rookie class includes several drivers who are rookies in name only: Keith Prutzman has been racing for more than four decades.  On Saturday night, April 20, PASS returns to BAPS Motor Speedway to complete a feature called due to rain on April 7 after one lap had been completed. A full show of heats and another 20-lap feature will be run as well.  On Friday, April 26, PASS will join the Laurel Highlands Sprint Series for a co-sanctioned event at Clinton County Motor Speedway, and it will return to Port Royal Speedway on April 27.  The Selinsgrove racer has now captured all three IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car features run so far, but this was hardly an easy win. With 21 of the 22 sprinters on hand making the call for the feature, traffic was an incessant issue on the wide Path Valley quarter mile. last_img read more

Stars stunned by Arizona weather

first_img Like the other 63 players in the Accenture Match Play Championship, Poulter was back at Dove Mountain near Tucson for the resumption of a first round halted by the wintry conditions. Less than four hours’ play was possible and 10 games – including those of top seeds Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Luke Donald – did not even tee off. “This weather is officially ridiculous,” McIlroy, who plays Shane Lowry in one of two all-Irish clashes, said on Twitter. The other one between Graeme McDowell and Padraig Harrington had only just started when the suspension came and McDowell commented: “Holy coldness. I’ve only ever played in an event with conditions like this once.” It was the West of Ireland Championship in “about 1998”. Poulter, winner in 2010 and perhaps the most feared match play golfer around after his deeds at the Ryder Cup, was going well. He stood three up on Scot Stephen Gallacher, who three-putted the short sixth and conceded the eighth and 10th. “What’s the problem? Let’s play,” Poulter joked on Twitter. “The caddies have officially just had a snowball fight. Never seen anything like it.” He then posted a picture of “at least two inches of snow” on his courtesy car. Lee Westwood was two up on Spaniard Rafael Cabrera Bello after five and Justin Rose two up at the turn on South Korean KJ Choi, although he had been four up after five. Welshman Jamie Donaldson, winner of last month’s Abu Dhabi Championship, had to take a penalty drop after his opening drive and bogeyed five of the first seven holes to be three down to Thorbjorn Olesen, but Bristol’s Chris Wood, who won his first European Tour title a week later in Qatar, was level with Masters champion Bubba Watson after six. Closest to winning was Sergio Garcia, whose first shot on his return will be a 12-foot putt to beat Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee on the 16th green. The forecast was for the snow to have cleared away overnight, but there was the possibility of early frost and that would delay things further. Ian Poulter has never seen anything like it – caddies having a snowball fight in the Arizona desert.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Omoluwa, Golf Community Mourn Shagaya’s Death

first_imgInterestingly, when he was alive, General Shagaya was fond of telling the story of how he prevailed on Omoluwa to be a member of the IBB Golf Club Board of Trustees.Shagaya mentioned that he picked on Omoluwa so there could be a sweet mix between the young and all other elderly members in the club’s Board of Trustees.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram A prominent member of the Board of Trustees of the IBB Golf Club in Abuja, Sir Lucky Omoluwa, has said that the passing of General John Shagaya (rtd) in a car crash last Sunday came to him as a rude shock.Omoluwa who received the sad news at the time he was about to preside over presentation of prizes at the last IBB Ladies Open believes the shocking demise of Shagaya would leave a yawning gap in the nation, especially the IBB Golf Club he helped build.Omoluwa also said that: “Without Shagaya there could not have been the IBB Golf Club. The man served the club diligently and selflessly. I don’t think we should allow all that to go away because the man is no longer around. We must immortalise him. I can only pray that God will grant him eternal rest. He was a good man”.last_img read more

Tulane truly grateful

first_imgNine weeks ago, Tulane University football players had many things to be excited about. They were picked to finish third in the Conference USA preseason poll and were returning a talented crew of upperclassmen. Players were even discussing a possible return to a bowl game.”There are no specific goals, it’s just to be a champion,” Tulane quarterback Lester Ricard said in a preseason press release. “Whether that’s conference champion or some type of bowl. My expectations are high. I feel like we can go 13-0, max it out.”In the beginning, expectations were high and players were pumped. However no one was expecting Hurricane Katrina.When the hurricane hit eight weeks ago, it forced Tulane athletes and students to relocate for the semester. Green Wave athletes suddenly had different goals in mind. “We’re not going to use being a homeless football team as a reason to not try to succeed on the field,” Tulane head coach Chris Scelfo said in a press release. “We’re playing for a lot of people and the pressure is high, but our coaches and players are all up for the challenge. We are representing our university and our city and that gives us inspiration.”Though heads may have initially hung low, Tulane football players and other athletes have been grateful with their new homes. The football team has relocated to Ruston, La., and enrolled at Louisiana Tech University. Six other teams — men’s basketball, women’s swimming and diving, women’s volleyball, women’s soccer and men and women’s tennis have moved to Texas A&M University. Texas Tech has welcomed baseball and women’s basketball squads, while Southern Methodist University has admitted men and women’s golf. Both cross country teams will not compete this year.It’s been a rough two months for these athletes. They no longer need a win to be satisfied. Most players have been thrilled through simply competing.”Our team opened with an exhibition meet this weekend and that was the best four hours of therapy this group of student-athlete and coaches could have gotten,” Tulane head swim coach Daniella Irle said Monday in an e-mail. “Eight weeks ago we were not sure we were going to have an athletic department let alone a season. In these past eight weeks I can honestly say that this staff has been truly challenged both professionally and personally, as have our student-athletes. It has been very difficult at times but we also have had some very gratifying and humbling moments as well. I have always felt that the swimming and diving community possessed unusual generosity and camaraderie and I really know that to be true.”It may have taken a new home for these athletes to finally find the true meaning of sports — the thrill of competition — but they have been in a struggle to find ways to win. Though once tabbed the nation’s No. 1 defense after allowing an average of 176 yards per game, the football team has been in a rut, winning only two games this season. Tulane volleyball has only managed to post a 2-8 record midway through the season. Last year, the team won seven of its first 10 games.The Green Wave women’s soccer team has only posted one victory in 11 games, although it did not have an impressive record last season (7-10-2).All sports teams have found their schedules shortened. They have also been forced to play all games on the road.It’s a grim situation, but their seasons would not have taken place without the help of Texas A&M, SMU, Texas Tech and Louisiana Tech.”Our thanks go out to so many people who have made this season happen for us,” Irle said. “So many people have come together to help us provide our ladies with a season that is similar to what they had beforehand. [Everyone who has donated is] the reason we got off to a great start this year and the reason we are even in business right now. Our budgets are really non-existent at this time, so these gifts have been our only source of securing items and a sense of normalcy for our young women.”Though winning may not be a priority for Tulane, as it is for other schools, Green Wave athletes are satisfied by just competing, and that is what athletics should be about.last_img read more

Second-string proves not to be 2nd rate

first_imgIOWA CITY, Iowa — It may have been Senior Day at Kinnick Stadium, but the afternoon belonged to a junior. Making his first career start, in place of the injured John Stocco, junior quarterback Tyler Donovan was thrust into about as unsavory a situation as could be imagined. The shifty scrambler was charged with leading Wisconsin into one of the Big Ten’s most hostile environments to take on a team no current Badger had ever beaten: the Iowa Hawkeyes, who were looking to right a season that has gone awry with another timely win over UW. “It doesn’t get much more high pressure than that,” sophomore cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu said. Surrounded by noise and bloodthirsty defenders, Donovan, playing with a chip on his shoulder that could be seen from the nosebleed section, calmly quarterbacked Wisconsin to a hard-fought 24-21 victory.”I wanted to prove something to myself, but more so, I wanted to prove something to the team,” a reserved and still very collected Donovan said after the game. “I don’t think you can say enough about a guy starting his first game in the Big Ten finale in a hostile environment,” Bielema said. “The plays he was able to come up with today were amazing and gratifying to watch as a coach.”Often standing in the middle of a maelstrom of chaos, with blitzing Hawkeyes coming at him from every direction, Donovan calmly led the Badgers down the field on several key scoring drives. After getting out to a fast start, where Donovan completed his first seven passes en route to a 10-0 Wisconsin lead, the Badgers watched Iowa’s Drew Tate briefly catch fire, as the Hawkeyes scored twice and took the lead. With the pendulum of momentum — a favorite expression of Barry Alvarez — swinging in the direction of Iowa, the junior signal-caller almost immediately led UW on a six-play 73-yard scoring drive punctuated by a spectacular 42-yard touchdown by receiver Luke Swan. On the drive, Donovan accounted for every yard, either via passing or scrambling. “He took some shots, too,” senior safety Joe Stellmacher said. “I don’t know how he got up from all of them, but he did.”Donovan came up big again late. As the Badgers clung to a perilous 17-14 lead, Iowa downed a punt at the UW 3-yard line that left Donovan standing in the Hawkeyes’ end zone — with the howling student section at his back, no more than 20 feet away. After a short P.J. Hill run, Donovan took the snap and dropped back 2 yards deep into the Iowa scoring box and with two Iowa defenders closing in, he completed a strike to tight end Travis Beckum for 13 yards and some much needed breathing room. The play set up a simply sparkling 15-play, 97-yard scoring drive that proved to be the decisive point in the contest. The march down the field might’ve been led by a quarterback making his first start, but during it Donovan was nothing less than a field general, poised beyond his experience. “For the first start of his career he was so poised,” Stellmacher said. “He was really playing to win, I mean you could see that. He was holding nothing back, he was playing to win and played his heart out.”My hat’s off to him.”Donovan has had to sit behind Stocco for three years and hear questions about his decision-making and arm strength. He then had to watch the new coaching staff bring in an experienced transfer in former Kansas State starter Allen Evridge, who will be eligible to play next season. The game may prove to be something of an audition for Donovan as the Badgers’ 2007 starting quarterback position. “I’m sure after this season is completed, everybody is going to want to know who the starting quarterback is at the University of Wisconsin, and I think [Donovan] took a huge step forward in that area right now,” Bielema said. “Today he went out there, was able to execute and get a win.”last_img read more

3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 41-3 handling of Holy Cross

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 28, 2019 at 3:26 pm Contact Josh: [email protected] | @Schafer_44 Syracuse handled Holy Cross 41-3 on Saturday afternoon in the Carrier Dome. After exploding for 52 points against Western Michigan last week, the Orange offense throttled their FCS opponent. The Orange extended their turnover streak to 19 with a Holy Cross fumbled punt in the first quarter which led to a score. Quarterback Tommy DeVito completed 19-of-31 passes for 269 yards and four touchdowns, including freshman Luke Benson’s 70-yard touchdown reception. Below are takeaways from the Orange’s (3-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) rout of the Crusaders (1-3).The return of Taj HarrisA year ago Taj Harris caught 40 passes for 565 yards and three touchdowns as a freshman. But through four games this year he’d caught just 11 balls for 163 yards. Saturday, Harris tallied 107 yards receiving and a touchdown for his first 100-yard game in 2019.Harris’ first big play came on over the middle. About 10 yards down the field, Harris spun off two defenders and barreled toward the sideline for a first down. In the second half he caught a pass in a similar location, only this time as he tracked back one step, blockers set up around him. Almost like a punt return, Harris dashed horizontally across the field to the sideline as Syracuse blockers formed a wall. Harris ran down the sidelines and converted on the touchdown.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe game from Harris came at a much needed time for Syracuse. The Orange receiving unit hadn’t had consistent yard gainers outside of Trishton Jackson, who entered Saturday’s game with more than 150 receiving yards than the next receiver.Defense holds up After entering the game favored by as many as 38.5 points, the defense held up its end of the bargain in regards to blowout expectations. It held Holy Cross to 138 yards, including just 18 yards on the ground.The Crusaders’ few attempts to run the ball up the middle failed and as the score opened up, they opted to throw more often. In pass defense, Syracuse’s defensive line finished with five sacks and constantly pressured Holy Cross quarterback Connor Degenhardt.One of the pressure’s on Degenhardt came from defensive linemen Tyrell Richards. As Degenhardt escaped one defender and paroused his options down field, Richards came barreling straight at the quarterback and lowered his head into Degenhardt’s shoulder. The hit elicited an “ooo” from the crowd and after review, Richard was flagged for targeting and ejected from the game.Syracuse’s suffocating defensive line took over in the third quarter. On one series, with Holy Cross still trailing 21, the Orange defensive line pinned the Crusaders against their own end zone. On the first play Alton Robinson and Kenneth Ruff wrapped up Holy Cross running back Domenic Cozier four yards behind the line of scrimmage. The next play, Holy Cross attempted a quick screen to an outside receiver but the ball never made it past Robinson’s hands as he batted and nearly intercepted the pass. Josh Black negated a running back almost immediately after the catch on the following play and one of Holy Cross’ last attempts to stay in the game fell short again.He can kick field goals too! Late in the first quarter Syracuse lined up for a 52-yard field goal but last year’s Lou Groza Award-winning kicker wasn’t attempting the field goal. Instead, punter Sterling Hofrichter trotted out and drilled a 52-yard field goal.Hofrichter, who Dino Babers has praised for hang time on his punts in the past, also kicks off for the Orange. His displays of leg strength in the past correlated with him having a bit of room on the long kick. Andre Szmyt, the Orange’s usual place kicker, kicked all other field goals including attempts after Hofrichter’s long kick. Commentslast_img read more

Chase Utley’s influence goes beyond analytics for Dodgers and their future

first_imgLOS ANGELES >> Baseball’s deep dive into statistical analysis has created a new language of exit velocities, launch angles, FIPs, WHIPs and BABIPs.But this is another new concept courtesy of the analytics crowd – a 37-year-old “bounceback candidate.”Chase Utley posted career-lows across the board offensively last season. A .212 batting average, .286 on-base percentage, .629 OPS and only eight home runs in over 400 plate appearances. Combined with the fact that he would turn 37 in December, the numbers seemed to scream of a player in decline. His 140 plate appearances with the Dodgers over the final two months of the season didn’t paint any prettier a picture (he hit .202 with a .654 OPS). Utley did bounce back. The oldest leadoff hitter in baseball this year, Utley has started 69 of the Dodgers’ first 94 games there – and eased a massive problem. Last year, Dodgers’ leadoff hitters (primarily Rollins and Joc Pederson) combined for the lowest batting average in the majors (.233), one of the lowest OBPs (.319, 20th) and fewest runs scored (93, 24th). Those numbers this season are a healthier middle of the pack in the National League.If not for a June swoon that lopped more than 20 points off his batting average, Utley’s individual statistics would be in line with most of his career norms.“I still feel like I can contribute. That’s the bottom line,” said Utley of his own belief in his bounciness.“Early in the (2015) season, first week or so, I felt like I was swinging the bat really well,” he said of his sub-par 2015, a season that started with him trying to play through an ankle injury suffered during an off-season workout. “For a couple weeks after that, even though I did swing the bat well I didn’t have a whole lot to show for it. At that point, I think it’s only natural to try to figure out a way to help your team. For me, I got out of what I’m most comfortable doing. Instead of trying to hit the ball hard I was trying to find places to hit the ball. And that didn’t work so well.“I took some time off (a six-week stint on the DL at mid-season) and got my body in more of a position to be successful. After that, I felt like I swung the bat okay, better than my baseball card would show. Obviously I appreciate that they were able to see beyond that.”For all their adherence to the measurables produced by an analytics department of unknown size but unquestioned influence, Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman and Zaidi also saw beyond Utley’s value in the batter’s box. When they re-signed Utley, they readily admit they were paying for intangibles as well.“The leadership, the attention to detail he has for the game — it was a huge boost for us down the stretch and into the playoffs (in 2015) and was an important thing for us to get back,” Zaidi said. “He just has such a strong reputation that even if you didn’t get quite that (offensive) production there was a lot of value to having him on your team.”The Dodgers expect to benefit from that value well beyond Utley’s one-year contract. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he “absolutely” sees Utley’s old-school influence impacting the Dodgers’ new wave of talent, young players like Corey Seager, Trayce Thompson and Joc Pederson.“Unbelievable. I can’t even, don’t even know where to start,” Seager said when asked if Utley has had a positive influence on him. “He’s helped me on the field, off the field, in the clubhouse. Anything you can think or imagine I’ve asked him and he’s talked to me about.“Just little things I’m picking up that people do, tipping pitches and little stuff that I personally never looked at that he’s shown me, tried to involve me. Obviously I’m a work in progress. I’m not awesome at it even when I know what he’s doing, the tipping or whatever.”Seager said he followed Utley’s career while growing up in North Carolina. Now he finds his locker next to Utley’s in the Dodgers’ home clubhouse and becomes effusive when talking about the benefits that flow from that relationship, saying he believes “100 percent” that being Utley’s teammate will benefit his career.“Just watching his at-bats, watching him grind through at-bats – I’m lost for words how impressive it is,” Seager said. “Watching him as a fan while I was growing up, you just think he’s this great player. He’s just that much better than everybody. But you watch him work – he grinds everything out, his attention to detail is off the charts.”Utley acknowledges the responsibility he has to provide a positive role model for a future star like Seager as well as others, whether through words or action.“For me, I don’t want to always be that guy, the teammate telling someone what to do. That’s not the way to go about it,” Utley said. “I think you play the game the way you think you should and hopefully some guys see how that can be beneficial and try to implement that into their game.” Utley’s long-time double-play partner, Jimmy Rollins, had similar numbers in those categories over a full season with the Dodgers last season and found himself unsigned until late February this spring when he accepted a minor-league contract offer from the Chicago White Sox. He made the White Sox’s roster and took a deep paycut (from $11 million to $2 million) only to be released in mid-June.But Utley barely had to wait until December to re-sign with the Dodgers for $7 million with other suitors lined up, willing to sign a 37-year-old middle infielder coming off the worst season of his career.“It was a couple things,” Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi said, explaining the thinking behind last winter’s most surprising decision by a front office that has advertised a desire to build a younger roster. “One, purely on the performance side, even when he was with us last year – he really had bad luck in that 150 at-bat sample. We looked at his hard-hit percentage, line drive percentage – that kind of stuff. It was actually very much in line with the numbers he’s putting up now. You would have thought he was a .280 to .300 hitter with .420 or .450 slug.“I think he was viewed as a strong bounceback candidate, that it (his poor offensive production) was going to be just one year.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

WATCH: Ron Burgundy drops by LA Kings broadcast booth, kisses burrito

first_imgThe Los Angeles Kings had a special guest in the broadcast booth when the team hosted the San Jose Sharks.Will Ferrell stopped by ready to perform in his “Anchorman” character, Ron Burgundy. The character stepped out of his local San Diego beat to deliver hilarious commentary alongside Fox Sports broadcasters Alex Faust and Jim Fox during the second period of the game. NHL announces 2019 Global Series schedule “Take, that San Jose!” Burgundy said on the broadcast, per NBC Sports. “Zero Stanley Cups! Zero Stanley Cups for the San Jose Sharks.

Dance of the Millions: How much did Zeljeznicar earn this Summer?

first_imgAfter being defeated by FC Standard from Liege last night (0:1), the Sarajevo FC Zeljeznicar ended its European adventure. The Blues played very well, and in the end just a little bit of luck was missing. Thanks to the excellent plays of the team from Grbavica, as well as some other factors, the team from Zvornicka 27 is on an excellent path to resolve the financial difficulties with which the club has been dealing for a long time now.From UEFA only, Zeljeznicar earned 630.000 Euros this summer (first qualifying round 200.000, second qualifying round 210.000, third qualifying round 220.000 Euros), and the cherry on top was the transfer of Edin Dzeko to Roma.According to information coming from the Apennines, Dzeko will go to Roma for 20 million Euros. Of these 20 million Euros, Zeljeznicar will get 3.5 percent, which is 700.000 Euros.Prior to the match against Standard, Josip Kvesic was sold and the Blues cashed 115.000 Euros. One day before the match, it was announced that Rijad Bajic will go to Konyaspor, and last night the Maniacs said goodbye to their favorite. According to the information in the media, Bajic’s transfer will amount to 400.000 Euros.The exact information on how much did Zeljeznicar earn from the sale of tickets is not available, but it is estimated that the team from Zvornicka 27 cashed 50.000 BAM from the match with Balzan, 180.000 BAM from the match with Ferencvaros, and 250.000 BAM from the match with standard. Thereby the Masindzije earned 480.000 BAM from the tickets sold in their European matches.If the transfer of Edin Dzeko and Riad Bajic is successfully realized, Zeljeznicar will this summer earn somehow incredible money for the BH football. All summed up, the Blues have earned 4.140.000 BAM this summer. Taking into consideration the expenses of travelling and the organization of matches this summer, the Blues will certainly have 3.500.000 BAM remaining, which is a really unbelievable amount of money for the BH football circumstances.(Source: radiosarajevo.ba)last_img read more

Bundesliga footballers Thuram and Sancho join US killing protests

first_imgMoenchengladbach’s French forward Marcus Thuram took a knee after scoringBerlin, Germany | AFP |  French star Marcus Thuram and England international Jadon Sancho joined the protests over racism and police brutality in the United States on Sunday after scoring in the Bundesliga.Thuram took a knee after scoring for Borussia Moenchengladbach in the game against Union Berlin.Sancho marked his goal for Borussia Dortmund against Paderborn by lifting his jersey to reveal a T-shirt bearing the words “Justice for George Floyd”.On Saturday, Schalke’s US midfielder Weston McKennie wore an armband against Werder Bremen bearing the words “Justice for George”.Thuram’s gesture echoed past protests by National Football League players in the US in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.The issue has surged back into the headlines following the death of unarmed black man George Floyd during a police arrest in Minneapolis.Sancho revealed his protest after scoring in the 57th minute – and was promptly yellow-carded for his troubles.Thuram, a 22-year-old French striker, continued his recent hot form with two goals as Borussia Moenchengladbach beat visiting Union Berlin 4-1.Because of social distancing rules, goal celebrations were muted but after Thuram headed his team’s second goal just before half-time he took the opportunity to make a solitary statement, kneeling and bowing his head.At half-time, his club tweeted a photo with the caption: “No explanation needed.”After the game, Gladbach coach Marco Rose said Thuram had his backing.“Marcus has made the point. He has set an example against racism that we all support,” Rose said.Thuram, whose father, French World Cup winner Lilian runs the Education against Racism foundation in Paris, was the latest show of solidarity with the current protests sweeping the United States.On Saturday, McKennie said it had been crucial to make a stand. “To be able to use my platform to bring attention to a problem that has been going on too long feels good!!!” he tweeted.Meanwhile, in the United States, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said there “remains an urgent need for action” as violent protests rocked the country.“The protesters’ reactions to these incidents reflect the pain, anger and frustration that so many of us feel,” Goodell said. “As current events dramatically underscore, there remains much more to do as a country and as a league.”Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown returned to his native Georgia to lead a peaceful protest march in Atlanta.“I drove 15 hours to get to Georgia, my community,” Brown said. “Being a celebrity, being an NBA player, don’t exclude me from no conversations at all. First and foremost, I’m a black man and I’m a member of this community.”-‘Am I next?’ –NBA star LeBron James was among those who contrasted pictures of police officer Derek Chauvin’s knee on Floyd’s neck with the kneeling protests of former NFL star Colin Kaepernick in 2016.Kaepernick, who was ostracised by the NFL for kneeling during the national anthem in protest against racial injustice, has launched a fund to pay for legal representation for protesters who need it.Serena Williams tweeted a video by Nike, which also sponsors Kaepernick, picking out the line: “Don’t pretend there’s not a problem in America.”Two-time Grand Slam tennis champion Naomi Osaka posted pictures of protests from Minneapolis on her Instagram account.“Just because it isn’t happening to you doesn’t mean it isn’t happening at all,” wrote Osaka, whose mother is Japanese and whose father is Haitian.Rising US tennis star Coco Gauff, a 16-year-old African American, showed on Instagram the faces of black Americans who died in recent years at the hands of authorities or white fellow citizens.“Am I next?” Gauff asked.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Woman admits killing push cart vendor over $1000

first_img…sentenced to more than 12 years in jailTwenty-seven-year-old Vanessa Baird was handed a 12-and-a-half-year prison sentence on Tuesday after she admitted to killing 43-year-old push cart vendor Percival Williams, on December 21, 2013 over $1000 at the Parika Stelling, East Bank Essequibo.Represented by Defence Counsel, Mark Conway, the mother of one, in tears, asked the court to be lenient with her so that she can return to care for her seven-year-old child.According to the State’s case which was presented by Prosecutors Abigail Gibbs, Natasha Backer and Tiffini Lyken, Williams was given $1000 by his would-be killer to purchase Chinese food for her and her son. At some point however, she asked Williams, a former Hague, West Coast Demerara resident for the money that she gave him and the two exchanged expletives after he did not comply.Baird held onto Williams’ jersey and a scuffle ensued and she then stabbed him in the lower chest area. The prosecution further relayed that the accused in her caution statement admitted that she had taken the knife from another person and committed the act.Williams immediately fell to the ground and was pronounced dead at the Leonora Cottage Hospital. His post-mortem examination showed that he died from perforation of the lung and heart due to stabbing. Reports back then were that Williams had converted the money to his own use.In making pleas of mitigation, Baird’s attorney observed that at the time of the incident, the woman was encountering financial difficulties being a single parent. Conway highlighted that his client has reflected on her actions and has improved her ability to have self-control. The court also heard that the woman now attends church services, sewing and drama classes whilst being incarcerated.Presiding Judge Navindra Singh, noted that it did not make sense to kill Baird in the manner which he lost his life. He encouraged her to seek out anger management classes as she continues the rehabilitation process. Baird’s time spent on remand awaiting trial will be deducted from her overall sentence.last_img read more

“Harmon’s powers not too burdensome” – Granger tells AFC

first_imgBy Devina SamarooPresident David Granger has completely disregarded calls made by the Alliance For Change (AFC) for the powers entrusted to Minister of State Joseph Harmon to be reduced, noting that his duties and responsibilities are not at all too burdensome.The AFC, the smaller partner in the A Partnership for National Unity/AFC coalition Government, believes that too much authority has been given to Minister Harmon.In this regard, the party called for Harmon’s powers to be trimmed. The AFC had explained that the concentration of the powers of the office of the Cabinet Secretary, the Minister of State in the Ministry of the Presidency and the effective Head of the Presidential Secretariat in a single person is a matter of concern and that in fact, the powers should be separated.Responding to these demands, President Granger appeared to be in full support of the duties and responsibilities assigned to Minister Harmon.“I don’t think that they are so burdensome that he cannot take all three responsibilities. I am standing by the duties which were assigned to him last May and this is what we have been working with for the last 11 months and this is what was explained to the Cabinet retreat in January,” the President said.He also posited that he was surprised that the AFC now seemed to find fault in the distribution of duties and responsibilities among Cabinet members.“We had a retreat of the Cabinet earlier this year and we put out a very clear statement on the responsibilities of all 14 Ministers and the Ministry of the Presidency. So there is a book and it is stated, and nobody made any objections to the duties which were assigned to the Minister of State then and it would be surprising that after two months, people feel that the duties are being misused or they need to be trimmed,” he explained.Notwithstanding his firm position in defence of Minister Harmon, the President said the matter would be extensively discussed when Cabinet meets today.“I have to wait to find out from our colleagues what they actually mean, but as far as I am concerned, there is no overburdening of the Ministry and I don’t see what powers they need to be reduced,” he stated.last_img read more

Exclusive – Meulensteen warns Man United: Robben looks happy at Bayern Munich

first_imgRene Meulensteen admits Manchester United have already missed out on Arjen Robben once before – and believes the Red Devils may be set for failure again this summer.The Bayern Munich flyer has been one of the players of the 2014 World Cup, despite some criticism for diving, and will line up for Holland in their semi-final clash with Argentina on Wednesday night.Dutch manager Louis van Gaal is ready to launch a raid for the 30-year-old, when he takes his place as Man United boss, with the duo’s close working relationship expected to aid the bid.But former Old Trafford assistant manager Meulensteen has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show he is unsure whether the winger would leave the Bundesliga giants.“I’m sure Van Gaal would love to take Arjen Robben to Manchester United,” he told talkSPORT. “That’s not a surprise.“When I was at Manchester United, we looked at that possibility for a few years, but then he signed for Bayern Munich. He’s been happy ever since and had a lot of success there.”last_img read more

DD Pets: Adding a second dog to a home – with LK Pets

first_imgIf you are thinking on adding a dog to your house with an existing dog there is a few things you should take into consideration. Firstly ask yourself are you getting a second dog for the right reasons? Lots of people get second dogs in hope that their dog will stop its destructive behaviour, nuisance barking or their separation anxiety.by Ray Breslin of the K9 Academy, Letterkenny. Sometimes this can help but more often than not you will end up with two noisy destructive dogs as dogs quickly learn from other dogs.Often people get a second dog as they feel guilty for not spending enough time with their existing dog and just want a friend to keep their dog company. Although the thought is nice and well intended its not a good reason to get a second dog as you will then have two dogs craving their humans companionship.So you have decided that none of the above are applicable to you and you just love dogs and want another, what do you need to know and do before getting another?If you have an elderly dog that just likes a small walk and to relax inside with its humans you should look into rescuing a dog of similar energy. Adding a puppy would only make life stressful for an older dog and both could end up with behavioural issues. Although most of the time same gender dogs get along just fine for novice dog owners it is best to get the opposite gender to what you already have in the house.Adding a big dog to a house with a small dog and vice versa. This is completely fine as long as your existing dog does not mind big/small dogs. Usually after a month or two they will get along just fine.If you are getting a puppy or adding any new dog into your house it is important to give your existing dog lots of attention as often the new arrival gets all the attention and this can stress out your existing dog and create conflict between the two.Your existing dog may act suspicious for awhile if you see them being extra watchful of the new member of the family be careful as often a dog fight can follow. So set up a management system and keep all interactions outside until your dog has accepted the new member.Do not let your existing dog “put the new dog in his place” this is a ranking system and dogs do not follow a ranking system. If you allow this to happen there can be possible conflict throughout their lives together. Ask a professional for help choosing the right dog or puppy to bring into your house.Always introduce the two dogs away from the home in a neutral area this will help ease the transition of the new dog into the house.DD Pets: Adding a second dog to a home – with LK Pets was last modified: October 10th, 2016 by Ray BreslinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Renewable Energy Provider Teams Up With Amazon

first_imgAmazon and renewable energy broker Arcadia Power have joined forces to offer homeowners a package that includes web-enabled devices designed to save energy plus a source of renewable energy. The two are partnering on the “Home Efficiency Bundle.”  The package of services includes the installation of smart devices, such as the Ecobee thermostat and the Amazon Echo Dot, and a switch to Arcadia Power’s source of clean energy. Customers pay nothing for the installation of the wi-fi gadgets by an Amazon tech. A monthly fee of $20 or $36, depending on which bundle of equipment they choose, is added to the the electricity bill from Arcadia for a term of 36 months.RELATED ARTICLESWind Energy Hits a High NoteUtilities Grapple with Rooftop Solar and the New Energy LandscapeWhen Will Rooftop Solar Be Cheaper Than the Grid?The Internet of Things Takes Center StageGet Ready for Smart Appliances In an article about the new offering, Business Insider described the arrangement as a way for Amazon to get its Alexa technology into more homes while heading off competition from rival Google. The basic package includes the Ecobee thermostat, three smart LED bulbs, an Amazon Dot, and four wi-fi connected electrical receptacles. The upgraded  bundle adds a Ring doorbell and swaps an Amazon Show for the Dot. The Echo Dot is a voice-controlled speaker that can play music, answer questions, or check the weather, according to Amazon’s website. The Echo Show is an upgraded version with a 10-inch screen for watching videos and TV shows. Ecobee can use local weather data to regulate home heating and cooling systems with potential savings of 23% a year, Arcadia claims. The thermostat also can send alerts in the event the HVAC system malfunctions. Wi-fi enabled plugs can be used to turn things on and off remotely. Tapping into the renewables market Kiran Bhatraju, who grew up in eastern Kentucky coal country, founded Arcadia Power in 2014 as a way of offering customers the best possible price on renewable energy, according to an article in Forbes earlier this year. Once customers are connected to Arcadia, they are assured of getting 50% of their electricity from renewable sources, mainly wind, with the option of signing up for a variety of other clean power sources, such as community solar or 100% wind energy. It took Arcadia years to build a system connecting the company with utilities around the country. It now has more than 80,000 members and deals with 100 utilities representing all 50 states. Last year, Arcadia reached the “tipping point” where it had enough of a customer base to negotiate lower prices for clean power, with rates often running 10% to 25% less than standard utility offerings, Forbes said. Bhatraju said that rising demand for clean power could stretch sources of renewable energy that are currently available, but at the same time would become an incentive for the addition of new clean energy sources. He told Forbes: “That’s when we become the market maker, with millions of customers leading the way, and making the decision on what kind of power plants to build being initiated by consumers rather than utilities and regulators.”last_img read more

European Court Orders Google To “Forget” Old Search Results

first_imgA European court ruled that Google must delete “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant” information from its search results when a user requests it. The ruling upholds the “right to be forgotten,” and allows people to cherry-pick their historical records and eliminate anything they don’t want other people to discover on the search engine.Google was hit with a “right to forget” lawsuit in Spain three years ago. The country’s Data Protection Agency ordered Google to remove search links on 90 people. The company refused to remove any data.See Also: How To Remove Yourself From The InternetAccording to the Guardian, in the first case of many against Google, Mario Costeja González from Spain wanted information relating to an auction for his repossessed home in 1998 erased from two pages on a newspaper’s website, and the European Court of justice ruled that under European Union data privacy laws, Google must remove the links that point to those pages.Google is the Internet’s encyclopedia, collecting and indexing public and historical information for people to find in the future. Allowing people to scrub history could also effectively let people rewrite it. If the ruling is upheld, people will be able to sanitize their background by erasing links to public information in one of the world’s largest information repositories.See also: Spain Asks Google For The Right To Be ForgottenEuropean citizens could now have greater control of their data, but questions remain on how people can enforce these rules, and even whether a “right to be forgotten” is a good idea in the first place. People should have a right to have their data protected online, and companies like Google and other social media companies have been slapped with lawsuits in the past for violating users’ rights. But there’s a big difference between private, personal data like information shared with friends on Facebook and public records that are published in a newspaper or other outlet online. In this case Google, as the collector of information around the Web, only has to remove the links that point to the information; it doesn’t have power to remove the information itself. The two pages are still live on the newspaper’s website, so a savvy user would eventually be able to find them, it would just take more than a cursory search.Lead image courtesy of Robert Scoble on Flickr 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market selena larson Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#European Union#Google#now#privacy#Right to be forgotten#Spain center_img Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

first_imgJohn Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Boston Celtics’ Kyrie Irving (11) shoots over Sacramento Kings’ George Hill (3). APBOSTON — Jaylen Brown has already figured out he’ll receive a lot less attention from opposing defenses when he’s on the floor with Kyrie Irving. Brown has also realized he’ll get some open shots, too. “This is about where we’re going to be two years from now. I have to look at it in a broader lens on a day-to-day basis.” Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Read Next “Kyrie and (Al) Horford are going to draw so much attention, especially Kyrie,” Brown said. “I’m just licking my chops anytime they double-team Kyrie. I’m just trying to be as ready as possible to take the pressure off them.”Irving also scored 22 for the Celtics, who posted their 11th consecutive win over the Kings in Boston, dating to their last loss on Jan. 19, 2007.

Morris is scheduled to go on the upcoming road trip.HAYWARD UPDATEStevens talked about star Gordon Hayward’s progress from a gruesome broken left ankle suffered in the team’s opener at Cleveland.“He’s going to be in a boot for however long,” the coach said. “It’s going to be a while before he’s allowed to put any weight on it.”Stevens said Hayward is in “good spirits” and “has been doing his chair shooting every day.”The injured forward has visited the team’s practice facility a few times.STAY CALMJoerger talked about the need to stay positive before the game despite his team’s rough start.“I try not to hit them over the head every timeout, being negative,” he said, breaking into a smile. “Very rarely have I lost it this season, which I think you can do twice a season — you can go temporarily insane.

Pacific Basin’s Loss Up Despite Stronger TCE Earnings

first_imgzoom Due to extraordinarily weak dry bulk market conditions seen in the first half of 2016, the Hong Kong-listed dry bulk shipping company Pacific Basin Shipping reported a net loss of USD 60.4 million, against a net loss of USD 15.4 million seen a year earlier, despite its strong TCE earnings premium.“While we were loss-making over this challenging period, our Handysize and Supramax earnings outperformed spot market rates by 56% and 29% respectively and we generated a positive operating cash flow,” Mats Berglund, CEO of Pacific Basin, said.The company’s said that its recent rights issue enhances its ability to navigate the protracted challenging environment, but also the ability to attract cargo and to assess and potentially purchase secondhand vessels at low prices.Average Handysize and Supramax daily earnings of USD 6,080 and USD 5,910 per day outperformed BHSI and BSI spot market indices by 56% and 29%, respectively.The sluggish dry bulk shipping market led to the reduction of the company’s daily Handysize vessel operating costs and shore-side G&A expenses compared to last year as Pacific Basin Shipping operated an average of 129 Handysize and 79 Supramax ships resulting in a 13% reduction and 39% increase in revenue days year on year.Driven primarily by South American agricultural exports, dry bulk rates have improved on increasing activity since the record lows of mid-February, the company said, adding that it is “continuing to manage for a weak market in the medium term, driving further cost savings and conducting our business efficiently and safely while astutely combining ships and cargoes to maximise our margins.”As at 30 June 2016, Pacific Basin Shipping operates 212 dry bulk ships of which 87 are owned and 125 are chartered. A further 12 owned and 5 chartered newbuildings are scheduled to join the company’s core fleet over the next two years.last_img read more

Ontarios teen royal wedding guest ready with dream dress

first_imgLONDON – Teenage royal wedding guest Faith Dickinson says she’s got her “dream dress” ready for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.The Peterborough, Ont., resident is among the throngs of royal fans who have flooded the town of Windsor west of London to celebrate the union at Windsor Castle on Saturday.But unlike most, the 15-year-old will watch the spectacle from the castle grounds, as one of seven youth associated with the Diana Award to receive a coveted spot outside St. George’s Chapel.Some 200 others from a range of charities are also invited onto the grounds, as well as more than 2,000 members of the public. Tens of thousands of other royal fans are expected to line the historic town’s winding streets.Dickinson expected she’ll have a prime view of the couple’s arrival, as well as their emergence from the ceremony as newlyweds.But her day will start early — she says she’ll have to dress and complete her makeup for an 8:30 a.m. arrival at the castle.With the wedding not set to begin until noon, and the couple’s procession through town not expected until 1 p.m., it’ll make for a long morning spent outside, the teen noted Friday.“But it’s all worth it,” Dickinson said, adding she’ll also get a chance to enter the chapel after the guests leave.“I love them, they’re a perfect couple and they do so much amazing charity work.”It’ll be a whirlwind trip for Dickinson, who arrived in London on Thursday, heads to Scotland on Sunday and returns to Canada on Wednesday.She’s still in school, after all, she points out.The Grade 10 student brought homework to tackle on the train to Edinburgh and back.“I have to get back to school — it’s exam season so I can’t miss too much,” said Dickinson, who brought math, history and science work.Nevertheless, she’s soaking up as much of her fairy tale trip as possible and plans to bring a camera to snap some prime shots of famous guests.And she gushed over her bespoke silk and lace dress by Ottawa designer Nora Pucci of the brand Zarucci, and a matching fascinator by Toronto milliner David Dunkley.“It’s a perfect outfit, my dream,” she said of the dress, in mauve.Dickinson said it was exactly one year ago that she met Prince Harry in London to receive a Diana Award for her charity work. Cuddles for Cancer provides blankets to cancer patients and veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.“I would never have imagined that I would be back for his wedding.”last_img read more

Ban calls for greater efforts to protect children in armed conflict in

In his latest report on the issue, the Secretary-General encourages national and international justice systems to take strong action ending impunity for crimes against children committed within their jurisdictions.Among other recommendations aimed at halting violations committed against the young caught up in war zones and bolstering their protection, the Secretary-General urged the Security Council to put measures into place against repeat offenders.“Accountability for perpetrators will create a sense of justice for the victims and it will also have a deterrence effect,” noted Radhika Coomaraswamy, Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Children and Armed Conflict.“Persistent violators have to realize that their crimes will not remain unpunished,” she added.The Secretary-General’s annual report to the Security Council explicitly lists in its annexes 56 parties, both State and non-State, who have committed grave violations against children, including 19 persistent violators who have been listed for more than 4 years. The report covers compliance and progress in ending six grave violations against children caught up in armed conflict: the recruitment and use of children, killing and maiming of children, rape and other grave sexual violence, abductions, attacks on schools and hospitals, and denial of humanitarian access to children.Noting that while progress has been made through plans to release child soldiers in several countries, such as in Burundi, the Central African Republic (CAR), Côte d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Uganda, children continue to suffer in many conflicts.The report also documents grave violations against children in 20 countries: Afghanistan, Burundi, CAR, Chad, Colombia, Côte d’Ivoire, DRC, Georgia, Haiti, Iraq, Lebanon, Myanmar, Nepal, Occupied Palestinian Territory and Israel, the Philippines, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Thailand and Uganda. Ms. Coomaraswamy stressed that the child protection community was waiting for a strong signal from the Security Council on its commitment to tackle the protection of children during armed conflict when it discusses the report on 29 April. 22 April 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called on the Security Council and judicial systems to step up action in the fight to end abuse of children in conflict zones around the world. read more

Brock scribe cooks up a literary hit

Samantha Craggs, Web editor, Marketing and CommunicationsSamantha Craggs is a Brock University communications and news media specialist who decided to try her hand at fiction-writing.She’s off to an excellent start.Craggs, a writer and web editor in University Marketing and Communications department, is one of the top three winners in the Toronto Star 2011 Short Story Contest, the most competitive event of its kind in Canada.She received her award Wednesday (April 27) in a ceremony at the Toronto Reference Library, where she shared the podium with first-place winner Toronto novelist Richelle Kosar, and University of Toronto physicist Erik Martinez, who won second prize.Craggs, a former newspaper reporter who joined Brock’s Communications staff in 2009, won for her submission Drinking in the Basement. Set in Niagara Falls, N.Y., it is the story of a frustrated wife dealing with her husband’s alcoholism.She said she was “stunned” when she was contacted and told she was a finalist.“It still hasn’t really sunk in,” she said after this week’s ceremony. “Fiction writing is a labour of love. It’s a whole lot of rejection, even for the best of them, so to get a ‘yes’ like that was amazing.“I was especially happy to get the chance to mention Brock University.”Now in its 33rd year, the Star’s literary competition is the biggest of its type in Canada and one of the largest in North America.With national prestige and thousands of dollars in prize money on the table, the competition is stiff.

first_imgLaw enforcement and school officials are warning of possible “stranger danger” near Gaiser Middle School.Three students reported being spoken to by a suspicious man in a pickup truck in the 2200 block of Northeast 94th Street, a few blocks from the school, about 8:20 a.m. Thursday, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.The man spoke to a female Gaiser student, but the girl pulled out her cellphone, acted as if she was making a call and kept walking, the sheriff’s office said.A moment later, police said the same man then spoke to a male student, asking him if he wanted candy. The boy began texting and kept walking. Another boy walking behind the first boy also saw the man in the pickup and kept walking.“They did the exact right thing: ignored the suspect adult who was trying to get their attention,” said Sgt. Fred Neiman. He added that while pretending to call someone is a good thing to do, “Don’t be afraid to make a call to 911 if you feel threatened as you’re walking to school.”The suspicious man is described as white, heavy-set, 30 to 50 years old, and with gray hair and a short beard. He was reportedly wearing a blue or tan shirt and smoking a cigarette.

Art and evolution

first_imgWorks of artists from Portugal, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Mozambique and India comprise the travelling exhibition underway at the India International Centre here. The series of uncanny artworks seem to tell a story. An anti-clock wise tour of the gallery indicates an evolution, a moving forward of time.Organised by Perve Galeria with support of the Portugal Embassy, the exhibition Lusophonies/Lusofonias display both modern and contemporary art by different generations of the Portuguese speaking countries or Lusophones which include Portugal, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Mozambique and certain parts of India. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’All the artworks in the exhibition have a common connection, whether experiential or through a formal aesthetic, related to African roots. A troika of oxymoronic images, two from India and one from Africa, serves as a prologue to the collection which manifests the cross-cultural developments that followed the colonization across continents and the struggle against it.“The origin of this collection was the need to reflect on how lusophone countries saw and see Lusophonie, a plural and dialectical vision, full of discrepancies, ambiguities and mutual contamination about culture, society, and even about a common language,” says Nunes. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe show has been chronologically divided into three sections: ‘Colonialism’, ‘Independence’ and ‘Miscegenation and Diaspora.’  Moving from one period to another in the anthology portrays a clear evolution from the “tendency to use art as a revolutionary discourse” in colonies to the establishment of sovereign political regimes after independence.“In Portugal, the freedom of speech that followed several decades of repression was a symptom of the artistic development,” says Nunes. The final part of the Lusophonies exhibition represents the artistic development that has occurred over time extending up to the present, not only in the lusophone world, but also in the countries where artists today work about Lusophonie and African influence issues. Representation from India includes two photographs by Subodh Kerkar and a set of pots or ‘matkas’ usually used by women in Indian villages to carry water.Closing this chapter of exhibition, which speaks majorly of the African influence, is a box of postcard sized artworks, some of them suspended in the air through strings around it, by Nobel Laureate author Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The exhibition is set to be on display till February 15.last_img read more

the Paris Climate Accord will prove only a temporary setback to reducing greenhouse gas emissions because "disaster still looms" unless the world moves urgently on the issue Brown toldAssociated Press during his visit to a clean energy conference in Beijing that China European countries and US state governors will for now fill the gap left by the federal government’s move to abdicate leadership on the issue "Nobody can stay on the sidelines We can’t afford any dropouts in the tremendous human challenge to make the transition to a sustainable future" Brown said "Disaster still looms and we’ve got to make the turn" Trump’s decision to leave the Paris accord has drawn heavy criticism within the US and internationally including in China The president argued that the Paris agreement favours emerging economies such as China’s and India’s at the expense of US workers California governor Jerry Brown AP Without mentioning Trump by name Brown told attendees at a forum on electric vehicles that "there are still people in powerful places who are resisting reality who are resisting the obvious science that we know governs our lives" Later when asked by the AP what could prompt the US to return to the forefront of climate change efforts Brown replied "Science facts the world the marketplace" Chinese Science and Technology Minister Wan Gang and Brown signed an agreement on behalf of their respective governments calling for greater collaboration on countering climate change Wan did not publicly address Trump’s move on the accord which has been ratified by almost 150 countries Brown signed similar collaboration agreements over the past several days with leaders in two Chinese provinces Jiangsu and Sichuan The US has long been a leader in the clean energy arena driving

into an electricity grid still dominated by coal-fueled power plants At the same time Chinese leaders face growing public pressure at home to reduce the health-damaging smog that blankets many urban areas The government has pledged that greenhouse gas emissions will peak no later than 2030 under the Paris pact and start to fall after then It has canceled the planned construction of more than 100 new coal-fired power plants and plans to invest at least $360 billion in green-energy projects by the end of the decade Its consumption of coal fell in 2016 for a third consecutive year It could meet its 2030 target a decade early US Energy Secretary Rick Perry also is due to attend this week’s energy meeting in Beijing Observers say delegates from other countries will be listening closely to the former Texas governor to gauge how Trump administration policies will shape global energy trends Trump is a strong advocate of boosting US fossil fuel industries in particular coal mining which suffered a steep decline in production during the tenure of former President Barack Obama Cheap natural gas and tighter pollution restrictions toppled coal from its dominant position in the US power

as equals when facing Real Madrid in the last La Liga derby at Atletico’s Vicente Calderon stadium on Saturday File image of Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone AP Simeone has overseen a dramatic turnaround in Atletico’s fortunes since taking over nearly five years ago including ending a 14-year winless streak against Real to win the Copa del Rey in 2013 Since then Atletico have lost two Champions League finals to Real but haven’t lost in their last six league meetings with the European champions "We believe in our own strengths we know our own virtues and above all our own deficiencies" said Simeone on Friday "We know there was a long time when they were better than us and nowadays we compete on a par with them "It is obvious one match is not a league it is just one match and anything can happen" Atletico won’t be short of motivation in the first clash between the sides since Real edged May’s Champions League final on penalties The club plans to move to a new 67000 capacity stadium next season but as well as possibly hosting Real for the final time at the Calderon Atletico are also in more need of the points as they trail the league leaders by six points "The fans will be the same as always we need them to be the 12th man" added Simeone Whilst Real are injury-ravaged without four key players in Pepe Casemiro Toni Kroos and Alvaro Morata Atletico hope to be at full-strength should top-scorer Antoine Griezmann shake off a bruised left foot to start "He is better he trained normally yesterday" said Simeone when quizzed on Griezmann’s fitness "This morning he was treated again He is making a huge effort to be fit "I hope he finishes training today in good shape and to be able to include him in the squad" By: IANS | Mumbai | Published: March 3

Azmi has said that mainstream Hindi cinema is witnessing a change from the stereotypical portrayal of mothers and other characters in earlier times See Pics:Sonam Kapoor Shabana Azmi Bond At Neerja’s Successmeet “There is a change coming in mainstream Hindi cinema Earlier when there used to be a role of a mother she would drop the thaali and scream ‘nahi’ an absolutely stereotypical role And in Hindi films there was always an attempt to wipe out all the details” Azmi said at a press meet regarding the success of her film ‘Neerja’ This has been changing now she said adding that if you see in mainstream cinema we are locating our characters Azmi plays a role based on Rama Bhanot in the film the mother of Neerja Bhanot (played by Sonam Kapoor) a flight attendant who laid her life in protecting passengers on a hijacked flight in 1986 Also read:Sonam Kapoor disappointed with ‘Neerja’ piracy in Pakistan The relationship between her and Sonam has been one of the highlights of the film having earned appreciation from critics and fans While there were numerous Punjabi mothers shown in Hindi films many of them have been stereotypical with the accent mannerisms and behaviour Also read:My focus was to create an ‘emotional reality’ in Neerja: Ram Madhvani “For any character it is important that you play different types of characters and in Neerja’s character there was a Punjabiyat but we didn’t blow trumpets about it only a few lines of it were used and people have appreciated it That’s the way forward The most delightful feeling is that numerous Punjabi mothers said that I looked exactly like them” Azmi said She also said that she’s getting numerous compliments from people who said that she made them cry “Javed sahab cried a lot when he saw the trial; he was speechless for a substantial time He then watched it in the theatre and again cried a lot there” she responded on being asked if her husband Javed Akhtar also feels the same ‘Neerja’ has done good

of “Reporters” and actress Kritika Kamra has only fond memories to take back from the TV show She says she is not signing another fiction entertainer anytime soon as she needs a much-deserved break Rumour mills have been abuzz that Kritika has been approached for a new TV show on &tv but she wonders where her name has cropped up from “I’m not doing any show (as of now) I have just finished the last day of shooting for ‘Reporters’ on October 6 and right now I have no plan to take up anything so soon I need a break” Kritika told IANS over phone from Mumbai Not one to do back-to-back fiction

personally” “It has been a very special show with great people…It was a dream team The concept was something new and what was particularly wonderful was that the story was not changed or moulded for the sake of TRPs” she said What Kritika especially loved about “Reporters” was its finite concept The show began on Sony Entertainment Television only in April and will end soon “One of the reasons why I loved doing ‘Reporters’ is that it was a finite show and It was a clear script from start to finish Indian television needs more of such formats” she said The curtains came down on the show’s

Suarez and Lionel Messi left Barcelona with a 2-1 Copa del Rey semi-final first leg advantage over Atletico Madrid to take back to the Camp Nou next week Suarez’s solo effort and a thunderous strike from Messi gave Barca a deserved commanding lead at half-time Barcelona ride on Luis Suarez Messi masterclass in the first leg of the Copa del Rey AP Yet Atletico roared back after the break as Antoine Griezmann halved the arrears and the hosts went close to an equaliser as they piled on the pressure in the final stages However Diego Simeone’s men were left to rue their slow start with Barca now favourites to make a fourth straight Cup final ahead of the second leg on 7 February "It is normal that playing here at their home they would push us and they were much better in the second-half than the first" said Suarez "The didn’t have anything to lose They risked a lot more and made us suffer a little" The honours have been split two apiece in the four previous two-legged ties between these sides in the past three seasons Yet there was a gulf in class as Barca took control in the first 45 minutes It took just seven minutes for Suarez to open the scoring with his seventh goal in nine appearances against Atletico The Uruguayan ran half the length of the field leaving Diego Godin and Stefan Savic in his wake before slotting the ball home with the outside of his foot into the far corner Suarez should have had a second when he was played in by Neymar but inside of going for goal the former Liverpool striker tried to return the ball to the Brazilian who couldn’t control Messi was the source of most of Barca’s best moves and sealed a scintillating first-half performance with a stunning finish for the second 12 minutes before half-time when he blasted home off the inside of the post from outside the box Atletico had offered precious little other than one effort from Koke that dipped onto the roof of the net before the break However the hosts were a team transformed after the break with Fernando Torres introduced alongside Griezmann up front "We spoke at half-time and I think in the second-half we got close to the team we have always been" said Atletico boss Simeone "I am left with that positive feeling We were close to a draw we fronted up against all the difficulties we faced in the first-half" Atletico were back in the tie just before the hour mark when a free-kick to the back post found Godin and his header across goal was turned home by Griezmann The French international had a glorious chance to then level moments later when he was picked out perfectly by Filipe Luis’s low cross However Griezmann’s effort was straight at Jasper Cillessen who saved from point blank range Barca could have put the tie to bed with a third away goal as a Messi free-kick was brilliantly turned onto the bar by Miguel Angel Moya Neymar then had a glorious chance as Messi again split the Atletico defence but his careless finish flew miles over the bar with just Moya to beat Barca could and arguably should have been punished in the latter stages as Torres flicked another fine Luis cross inches wide Torres also fired wide with a much better opening from the edge of the area before Griezmann rifled a thirty-yard strike inches past Cillessen’s far post "As per my source, there would be a core campaign team,Navalgund spoke about three space

I wrote this piece not to comment on the masses or the problems of communalism in India and its villages, but first we must teach them respect and love of their fellow man. An off-spinner opening the bowling; opening batsman attacking the new ball instead of merely taking the shine off it? These are old hat now but back then it was crazy time And very exciting You tuned in because you didn’t know what you might see next And Crowe as their leader and best batsman was at the heart of everything they did But that loss and Pakistan’s eventual victory in the final meant the tournament would forever be remembered for Pakistan’s great escape with Crowe (the leading run-scorer in the tournament) and New Zealand’s revolutionary cricket relegated to a supporting role In a way that match was a microcosm of Crowe’s career A strong muscular batsman with all the shots and the footwork of a boxer (a batsman needs the footwork of a boxer he used to say) Crowe is undoubtedly one of New Zealand’s finest-ever cricketers and one of his generations finest batsman An average of 4536 from 77 Tests with 17 centuries is a Test record nine out of every 10 batsman would gladly accept Yet injuries forced him into early retirement at the age of 33 at a time when he had averaged 5052 over the previous 10 years In other words something great might have been greater still At his peak between 1985 and 1993 Crowe averaged 5475 and scored a century once every 321 Tests The late Peter Roebuck once wrote that Crowe could “soar like an eagle” at the crease Gideon Haigh in a masterly tribute to Crowe on ESPNcricinfo describes Crowe’s 188 against Australia in 1985 thus: “I can see him now — tight upright playing pedantically in the V the sleeves buttoned to the wrists the distinctive white headband beneath the distinctive white helmet as understated and soaringly magnificent as a Doric column” No one was harder on Crowe than Crowe himself In his second autobiography Raw published in 2013 after he had been diagnosed with cancer Crowe admitted he had led a somewhat tortured existence Calling himself the “the world record holder for grievances" he said he suffered an "ongoing problem of mine — a disconnected spirit and soul overwhelmed by the ego and the emotional instability created from my unfinished teenage development" Yet he was also one of the finest thinkers of the sport and grew into a skilled writer expounding eruditely on technique individual players and the state of the global game In his tribute Haigh reveals that Crowe was “an astonishingly assiduous correspondent hugely motivated to become a better writer always wanting to know what you thought of his work endlessly encouraging of your own” Crowe was particularly insightful when it came to the inner life of a batsman In a column titled Minding the Gap he wrote: “The gap between balls that 30-second time span between when the last ball became dead and the next ball becomes live is arguably the most important period in a batsman’s innings” He also wrote movingly about his own career and his love for New Zealand cricket even as cancer ravaged his body And he was a ceaseless advocate for playing cricket with respect and for the right reasons His final column for ESPNCricinfo in May 2015 was fittingly titled ‘Ain’t No Time to Hate’: “What we can strive for is to restore our sport’s lost integrity and loving feeling so the fans can be lifted once more from their daily grind International cricket nation vs nation is about patriotism and a bit of tribalism but not hate It does no harm to remind ourselves of why we play the game: for the love of entertaining every fan We play to satisfy our pride of place where we live It was clear he cared deeply about the game of cricket and wanted the best both for the sport and the players His inventiveness followed him into retirement and he created a precursor to Twenty20 cricket in Cricket Max a three-hour format but with two innings of 10 8-ball overs per side One of the rules was a free hit after a no-ball something that is now common currency in limited-over cricket today Crowe came up with it in the mid-1990s He was also generous with his time not only as a mentor to the next generation of New Zealand cricketers but also to complete strangers such as fellow Firstpost writer Dennis Freedman an account of which you can read here Whatever demons Crowe had to deal with throughout his life it appears he had conquered them at

tortoise in the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador where he is on a tour to encourage environmental protection for the world heritage site The United Nations Secretary General became the godfather of the giant tortoise named Encantada the 57th born in the Chelonoidis darwini species from Santiago Island while he was visiting the Giant Tortoise Breeding Centre of the Galapagos National Park (GNP) in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz Island Efe news reported Encantada was hatched in artificial incubators in the Puerto Ayora Galapagos breeding centre as part of a conservation programme carried out by the Ecuadorian Ministry of Environment The baby tortoise will stay in the breeding centre for the next five years and will then return to its home island of Santiago the GNP said in a statement "It is our responsibility to preserve the Galapagos truly a unique world heritage site for current and future generations" Ban said during a ceremony to recognise him as Encantada’s godfather The GNP’s
