Activists ‘die-in’ over budget cuts to HIV, youth housing

first_imgPastor Franklin Hobbs speaks from the steps of the Massachusetts State House while protesters stage a ‘die-in’ on Sept. 19.Sept. 25 — In response to Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker’s murderous budget cuts to HIV, housing and youth services, protesters staged “die-ins” at the State House and a nearby busy shopping district in Boston on Sept. 19.Despite thousands of HIV infection cases in Massachusetts and hundreds of new cases each year, Gov. Baker used his line-item veto to cut nearly $3 million to HIV-related services from the state’s 2018 budget. Organizers called upon members of the state legislature to override these cuts, representing millions of dollars in services stolen from the oppressed.Protesters — led by ACT-UP Boston — leafleted and chanted. Then, each fell down “dead” in coordinated sequence, recalling militant direct actions of ACT-UP during its critical height in the late 1980s and early 1990 in response to the brutal, government-enabled HIV/AIDS crisis that claimed one victim in the U.S. every eight minutes.ACT-UP has also mounted demonstrations over the years to expose U.S. and European neocolonial pharmaceutical profiteers, who prioritized their bottom line over fighting the massive HIV/AIDS ­pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa.Youth organizers in Boston — most are younger than the 30-year-old ACT-UP movement — expressed outrage that after three decades, a militant fight for HIV/AIDS and related services is still as necessary as ever.Accessing treatment for HIV is often insurmountable for those without insurance and stable housing, especially poor and working people, trans, Black and/or Latinx people. HIV infection rates are also high among people who use drugs and face that related stigma disproportionately under capitalism.Among the programs set to be completely axed by Gov. Baker is Youth On Fire, a highly valued Cambridge program providing beds, meals, overdose prevention and other support for LGBTQ youth and youth with HIV.An affinity group of ACT-UP Boston, called ACT-UP CLASS WAR — the Coalition of Local Activists and Seropositive Siblings formed to Wipe out Austerity and Racism — mobilized to raise demands beyond the call to urge legislators to overturn budget cuts.The CLASS WAR group called for securing housing as a basic human right and for ending Boston’s exploding luxury housing market, which has produced mass evictions of longtime working-class and poor residents. They also demanded full, permanent funding for Youth On Fire, as well as additional services that would provide housing for homeless people living with HIV/AIDS and supervised consumption facilities for people who use drugs.As of this writing, the Massachusetts House has voted to override Gov. Baker’s cuts to 2018 funding for youth homelessness and HIV programs, including Youth On Fire. It remains to be seen if the state Senate will do the same. Two other programs — Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (which includes help for people with disabilities) and support for section 8 vouchers — have not yet received an override vote in either chamber.People wait anxiously to learn the fate of these budget items that seriously impact their lives. One “die-in” speaker related that they might not survive the winter if the line-item cuts get pushed through.As true today as it was 30 years ago, in the face of capitalist austerity, “Silence is death.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A division bench of Justice B V Nagarathna and Justice N S Sanjay Gowda extended the relief after Additional Government Advocate appearing on behalf of Additional Advocate General once again sought time to make submissions in the matter. The doctors have challenged the compulsory One year Urban service rule for Postgraduate Doctors who had taken admission through Management and NRI quota. The doctors are also challenging an order dated August 30, 2019, by which the court had upheld the constitutional validity of section 4 of the KCS Act. The appellants have claimed that they have no issue serving under the Disaster Management Act, dehors the KCS act. The bench had earlier raised a preliminary objection to the maintainability of the appeal holding that as per the Karnataka Compulsory Training Service By Candidates Completed Medical Courses Act 2012, a candidate includes all students belonging to all quota. It had said “What is so superior to the management quota that you cannot do service for one year in the state. The service you will do is not for gratis, they will pay you.” Advocate Akkamahadevi Hiremath, appearing for the appellants had argued that when they had taken admission in the private colleges, the Act was stayed by an order passed by the court. Moreover, the brochures issued by the private colleges also did not mention this rule of doing the compulsory service for students admitted under the management quota or NRI student’s. She even mentioned that the students have paid lakhs and crores of rupees for their education and since they have not received any benefit from the state government the dictum of ‘quid pro quo’ would not be applicable in their case.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

UK: BMS Launches Unique Laser for Repelling Hijackers or Potential Attackers

first_img Equipment & technology UK: BMS Launches Unique Laser for Repelling Hijackers or Potential Attackers Britannia Maritime Security (BMS) is launching a unique laser which offers the private maritime security industry a non-lethal option for repelling hijackers or other potential attackers.The SMU – 100 Laser Dazzler, which works both day and night at 800 metres with two square metres coverage, is designed to cause temporary blindness and nausea, with no long-term effects.BMS Managing Director Stuart Niven will introduce the weapon at the Ships & Ports Security session of the Transport Security Expo on 13-14 November at Olympia in London.“The Dazzler has been developed over a number of years by Paul Kerr, an ex-Royal Marine Commando and now Head of Development at our partner Photonic Security Services,” explains Niven. “Its unique pencil-thin beam is scanned over the scene to temporarily impair vision without any danger of long-term damage to either the user or the target.”The laser will penetrate sunglasses and, by scanning to cover two square metres, it affects all the people in an approaching skiff or boat. It comes with a mounting pole for use on a ship’s bridge wings, although it is also designed to be used by personnel on oil platforms and other maritime environments. Full training in using the weapon will be provided by BMS.“This unique product is key operated and intrinsically safe,” says Niven. “Conventional lasers use simple optics to generate an expanding beam and by-standers close to the unit can receive eye injury from reflections. This is not the case with the SMU-100 Laser Dazzler.“We are delighted to be given the opportunity to launch the SMU-100 Laser Dazzler at the Transport Security Expo as it attracts exactly the audience we want.”The SMU-100 Laser Dazzler is waterproof, low maintenance and the ideal product for deterring potential attackers without causing long-term damage.UK-based BMS specialises in best practice in managing risk, supplying escort vessels, protecting oil and gas assets and providing anti-piracy solutions. It was the first company accredited by Panama to offer protection on transits on board Panamanian flag vessels.[mappress]Press Release, November 26, 2013; Image: BMS Share this articlecenter_img November 26, 2013 Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: BMS Launches Unique Laser for Repelling Hijackers or Potential Attackers last_img read more

“LIVING OUTSIDE THE BOX”

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare “LIVING OUTSIDE THE BOX”Joe Wallace is the author of the forthcoming book called Living Outside the Box that took its inspiration from a series of situations where thinking outside the box never lead to action. Finally, in a moment of frustration, Joe uttered the words “what good does it do to think outside the box if you don’t have the courage to live outside the box?”   The title and the idea of this book were born with that statement.Excerpt from Chapter 2: Eternal Awareness“Some people seem to have an insatiable curiosity about what is going on around them.  Others are content to go with the flow and avoid the exercise of learning what makes their surroundings tick and more importantly what are the opportunities from the improvement that are literally right under one’s nose. The level of curiosity that a person has is directly proportional to the number of opportunities to enjoy life to the fullest or identify things within a particular region or ecosystem that are in need of improvement.The origins of entrepreneurship are the ideas and perspectives that people have and then act upon to create changes that often have profoundly positive economic or social outcomes. These outcomes can range from businesses that create wealth through solving problems by offering solid solutions to existing problems to elegant services that make human life better.Ideas and perspectives germinate in the minds of acutely aware individuals during the day to day activity of living. By the powers of observation and through a healthy feeling of discontentment with the status quo, curious visionaries identify potential solutions to society’s problems. When these visionaries have ambition, drive, and access to capital, sometimes they become entrepreneurs. When their ideas become successful products and services, the entrepreneurs and their communities can accumulate wealth and enhance the quality of life.”Author Bio:Joe Wallace is CEO and Chief Innovation Officer of the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership that operates the Palm Springs Innovation Hub where he also serves as the founding Managing Director. Wallace entered the world of mentoring entrepreneurs and businesses serving as the founding President and CEO of the Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville and Innovation Pointe where entrepreneurship was the prime focus. Joe’s work has been honored with the CSU San Bernardino’s Spirit of the Entrepreneur Award, the R & D Top 100 Award, the Clean Air Award, and the Indiana University Growth 100 Award along with many others.  Over his career, Joe has been recognized as a creative leader who is not afraid to live his life outside the box.  Wallace was graduated from Stanford University with an MS in Mechanical Engineering and has earned technical certifications from both Harvard and MIT. With over 10 start-up businesses and experience mentoring over 100 others, Joe enjoys a reputation of a person with a depth of technical knowledge who applies common sense solutions that work to business and life.EDITORS NOTE: We highly recommend if your a CEO of a developing corporation this book is a must read for you middle and upper echelon management team!Joe’s book is extremely insightful and intellectually based.last_img read more

The String Cheese Incident Welcomes Scott Sharrard At Scorching Summer Tour Closer

first_imgAfter a fun first night at the Kings Theatre, the String Cheese Incident returned to Brooklyn last night to complete their two-night run and their Summer tour to a close. The show was filled with thrilling moments, excellent jams, spot-on covers, and a high octane guest spot from Gregg Allman Band’s Scott Sharrard.Coming out of the gate hot, the band opened with a thumping, extended version of “Valley Of The Jig” that really got the crowd moving. The soulful and funky “Black And White” came next, and the band took that song out for a walk before segueing into a fun, Latin-tinged “Yo Se”. After a quick version of “Farther”, the band played “Sweet Spot”, a track from the band’s new SCI Sound Lab project. SCI kept the newer songs going with a fun take on the Kyle Hollingsworth tune “Stop Drop Roll” before finishing up set one with a huge, locked in version of their classic “Round The Wheel”.After a short break, SCI returned to the stage and immediately picked up where they left off. “Desert Dawn” was the perfect set two opener. After a spirited run through the song’s form, the band performed easily the jam of the night, moving as a unit through several unique, progressive rock-like sections before bringing the song to its natural end. The impressive improv section was a true highlight in a show filled with them.After the raging set two opener, the band returned to their Sound Lab to perform another new track, “Get Tight”. After a short-but-sweet version of the new song, the band picked things back up with a funky version of “Rain” that gave the band another opportunity to stretch out their improv muscles, with Michael Kang coming in at the perfect time to bring the jam to its climax.Rhythm guitarist / singer Billy Nershi then stepped up to the microphone to introduce a special guest, none other than Scott Sharrard. Sharrard played the entire Allmans Family Incident with the band at The Peach Festival on Friday, serving as band leader as the band worked through a set of Allman Brothers classics. The band seemed to be loving the Allman Brothers musical vibe, and kept the party going with incredible versions of “Hot’Lanta” and “Southbound” that simply had the audience going bananas. Sharrard was particularly impressive, trading lead solos with Michael Kang in true tension-release fashion, creating an enormous amount of energy in the room. Anyone who was at The Peach on Friday was gifted with some bonus Allmans material, and anyone who missed The Peach was absolutely blessed to catch some of the magic from that performance. Sharrard and SCI also managed to slip in a version of “On The Road” in between the two covers, and overall created a huge, non-stop segment of musical magic.Watch “Hot ‘Lanta” below, courtesy of Gabe Sokker.Sharrard left the stage to raucous applause, and the band kicked into the evening’s final segment. Starting with “Way Back Home”, the band moved quickly into “Whiskey Before Breakfast” before landing on an out-of-left-field, set-closing cover of Led Zeppelin‘s epic rocker “Kashmir” that left the crowd begging for more.The band took a short break before delivering a three-song encore to finish their summer tour. Opening with “Honky Tonk Heroes”, the band then turned in a quick version of “Hobo Song” before creating one more opportunity to rage with their fans, bringing things to a close with a huge version of “Rosie” that had the crowd dancing all the way out of venue and into the streets of Brooklyn.After a great summer that saw the String Cheese Incident bring their carnival-esque live show across the country, the band capped off their summer with an excellent show that found the band truly locked in and in command of their collective sound. The fun covers, spirited jamming, and all-around positive vibes all add up to a band that’s currently at the top of its game.The String Cheese Incident will now take a few months off before they play three nights at Suwanee Hulaween this October.The String Cheese Incident | Kings Theatre | Brooklyn, NY | 8/15/2016Set 1: Valley of the Jig, Black and White > Yo Se, Farther, Sweet Spot, Stop Drop Roll, Round the WheelSet 2: Desert Dawn, Get Tight, Rain, Hot ‘Lanta[1], On the Road[1] > Southbound[1], Way Back Home > Whiskey Before Breakfast > KashmirEncore: Honky Tonk Heroes, Hobo Song, Rosie[1] Feat.

Students, University respond to arrests

first_imgIn response to the large number of students recently arrested and incarcerated for underage drinking, representatives from the University and student government met with the South Bend Police Department (SBPD) this week.  “It’s the pattern to me that is of most concern,” he said. “We need to make sure that our students’ rights and their dignity is protected and that’s why we went down to meet with them face to face.” He added that it is not excise officers’ protocol to incarcerate people for underage drinking, but certain conditions may provoke it. Doyle asked students, especially those who are underage, to be “model citizens” in the community this weekend. Trent expects complaints will subside once the weather cools down because parties will move indoors and residents will sleep with their windows shut.  Indiana State Excise Police Commander Lt. Tim Cleveland said excise police will also be in St. Joseph County this weekend, but does not have plans to step up enforcement. Doyle said the University met with police because students repeatedly shared stories in which they felt their rights or dignity had been violated when interacting with law enforcement officers.  These meetings opened communication channels and resulted in small changes in SBPD procedure, Fr. Tom Doyle, vice president for Student Affairs said. The recent trend to incarcerate students — rather than issue citations — stems from the fact that police hold a certain amount of liability for students who are allowed to go home, Trent said. “There were lots of conversations we can work on within student government that can lead to greater changes,” she said. “As long as they’re in proximity to the car, there will be an audio account,” he said. “This is for the officer’s security and this is for everybody’s security.” “I expect my officers to be respectful of those that they’re citing or arresting, and likewise we expect those who are being issued summons or arrested to be respectful as well,” he said.  South Bend police officers will wear and activate body microphones, Doyle said. “We’re not in a situation any longer where we can just shrug and allow 50 or 100 students in a residential neighborhood to just disperse,” Trent said.  Trent said officers are responding to noise complaints and are “not trying to hinder or put a stop to the college experience.” “From our perspective, we’re getting calls from people and they’re saying ‘I’m trying to sleep and there’s a mob behind my house,’” he said. But Doyle also said there are two sides to every story and used the University’s meeting with police Tuesday as an opportunity to hear from the other side.  Cleveland also encouraged students to work with law enforcement officers and said “a little cooperation goes a long way.”  “If they’re not cooperative or they’re too intoxicated, then I’ll leave that to my officers discretion as whether to incarcerate,” he said.  Going into the first home football weekend, there will be 25 South Bend police officers patrolling the city Friday and Saturday night, Soler said.  “They have a very hard job to do and we understand that,” he said.  Doyle said SBPD was “receptive” and Soler agreed. She said student government plans to meet with police again within two weeks.  For example, if a group of people are stopped on Washington Street, two miles from campus, they would have a lengthy walk back to campus after being issued a citation and could potentially get into trouble. Police have also noticed younger students appear “profoundly drunk,” even when they have low blood alcohol contents, because of their lack of experience with alcohol.  SBPD spokesman Capt. Phil Trent attributes this change to circumstances, rather than a “conspiracy.” Trent said Notre Dame student off-campus housing used to be concentrated around Eddy Street and Notre Dame Avenue, as were the bars and night spots for students.  Now, students live in more residential neighborhoods and parties draw more complaints. Student body president Catherine Soler met with the SBPD Thursday night, and said the aim of this meeting was to decrease tensions between the student body and law enforcement officers. Both the University and police recognized the attention to, and punishment for, alcohol related violations this year is different than it has been in the past. “Our hope is that we can get through this weekend without significant incident or conflict, that we can start to build the kinds of communication channels between administration and students and law enforcement where we’re not so much in conflict with one another,” he said. Soler said the student body can expect an e-mail from student government detailing the meeting with SBPD sometime today.  “They are going to continue to do their job, but with a bit more of an understanding of the student’s perspective,” student body president Catherine Soler said after Thursday night’s meeting. “There is definitely going to be more discretion in the situations involving arrests and ticketing.”last_img read more

Beautiful Buckwheat

first_imgBuckwheat adds nitrogen to garden plots, produces beautiful flowers and delicious pancakes.Each year I start my garden with grand visions of endless bounty. Something happens around the first part of July, though.By then, I’ve had plenty of squash and cucumbers, and even had a few choice tomatoes; basically, my stomach gets too full to keep up.Now, the spring vegetables are petering out, as well as some of those early squash and cucumbers. The stifling heat and humidity make going out in the garden almost impossible before 7 p.m.This year I have a plan to keep those garden beds from turning into pastureland. No, it’s not mountains of mulch or more hours with the hoe and tiller. It’s buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum).Buckwheat is an unusually fast-growing plant produced by commercial agriculture for its grain-like seeds. In the home garden, it is one of the best summer cover/green manure crops available.George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were some of the first American farmers to grow buckwheat, as they recognized its benefit in a healthy crop rotation. Native to Russia, the flexibility and adaptability led buckwheat to be grown on more than a million acres in the U.S. in the late 1800s.The grain is ground into flour and used in a variety of foods, from noodles in Japan to breakfast staples like cereal and pancakes in the U.S. I even had pillows made from buckwheat hulls when I lived in the tropical Pacific. The pillows are meant to be cooler because of the increased space for air. I never got past the crinkling noise I heard each time I moved.Buckwheat is easy to grow. Simply broadcast the seeds and lightly rake them in. A pound of seed is recommended per 500 square feet of garden space, or 3 ounces of seed per 100 square feet. You can’t really put too much seed down. Since it’s usually sold in bulk from the local feed store, it’s better to err on the side of too much. Buckwheat does not require highly fertile soils but will benefit from modest levels of nitrogen. Its many fine roots are well adapted to find lower levels of phosphorous, and when crop residues are returned to the soil, it becomes more available for other plants.Germination begins in about three to four days, and within 10 to 14 days, the ground should be fully covered with emerging leaves. This quick leaf cover protects the soil from erosion, retains moisture and shades out those dastardly weed seeds.Now just sit back, drink some iced tea and wait for the best part: the floral display that begins three to four weeks after planting. A large, dense planting will literally stop traffic. My neighbors tell me they always slow down to admire the 5-by-100-foot strip I planted along the roadside.The prolific flowers on buckwheat are a good nectar source for honeybees and other pollinators. The resulting honey is dark-colored and distinctly different in taste from clover or wildflower honey. The timing of flowering is also very beneficial to bees because midsummer is usually when there is less native forage available.Remember that those prolific flowers turn into a seed if allowed to develop and dry on the plant. If you do not want buckwheat carrying over into your next planting, cut the plants or till them under two to three weeks after flowering. Some farmers cut it and leave the plant residue on the surface as mulch, which will provide a premulched area for new transplants.last_img read more

Bar’s annual fee statements are on the way

first_img Bar’s annual fee statements are on the way Members may now pay their fees online at www.flabar.org Mark D. Killian Managing Editor Florida Bar members soon will receive their 2005-06 fee statements, reflecting no increase in annual fees and only minor modifications to the form.The fees are payable July 1 and are late after August 15.Members will receive one of two fee statements: one designed for active members and another for those who have elected inactive status. Annual fees are $265. Inactive members pay $175.“Members should be aware that the fee statements are two-sided and must be completed both front and back and be mailed along with their payment to cover their fees and sections joined,” Bar Finance Director Allen Martin said.Under the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, fees postmarked after August 15 will be assessed a $50 late fee. Members who do not pay by September 30 will be deemed delinquent. The delinquency may be cleared by petitioning the Bar, paying the fees, the late fee, and a $150 reinstatement fee. Online Payment Members have the option to complete their annual fee statement and pay their fees online via the Bar’s Web site at www.flabar.org, an option exercised by more than 8,500 members last year. But to do so, members must first be registered on the Bar’s Web site. If you have not registered, go to www3.flabar.org, click on the “register” link and then follow the prompts. Instructions for paying Bar fees online also are includedwith the paper form mailed to your official Bar address. Challenge for Children Members also have an option to make a voluntary $45 contribution to The Florida Bar Foundation’s Lawyers’ Challenge for Children campaign to help bring the benefits of the law and of lawyers to the lives of poor children. The Foundation will dedicate Bar members’ contributions to legal assistance to children through grants to legal aid and legal services programs across the state, according to Bar President-elect Alan Bookman. (See story above.) Last year, Florida lawyers contributed more than $180,000 to the Challenge for Children campaign. Pro Bono Reports This year’s fee form again includes a pro bono section for Bar members to report if they have met the Supreme Court’s aspirational pro bono goals. The court asks lawyers to provide 20 hours of pro bono service or donate $350 to a legal aid program each year.A series of questions promulgated by the court appears on the fee statement, depending on what option the attorney selected. The court wants to know:• How many hours of pro bono service the lawyer donated and if the work was done through an organized legal aid program or on the lawyer’s own.• If the lawyer’s firm provided pro bono collectively under a plan operated by a circuit pro bono committee, with an indication of how much was allocated to the member.• If the lawyer has contributed to a legal aid organization in lieu of performing pro bono work.• Whether the attorney was unable to provide pro bono service or met the provision for being deferred.• How the lawyer fulfilled his or her service if done in some manner not specifically envisioned by the plan. Community Service This year’s fee statement again features a purely voluntary section that allows members to report the community and public service they have performed over the past year. The purpose is to obtain data to show contributions lawyers make by way of community service. Lawyers may voluntarily report whether they have provided service to the legal community, religious organizations, civic organizations, or other charities and the number of hours donated.The community service questions are separate from the court’s pro bono reporting requirements, and answering these questions does not constitute compliance with the required pro bono responses. Trust Accounting The statement requires that all lawyers indicate whether they comply with the Bar’s trust accounting requirements and the interest on trust accounts rule.answering the trust accounting question, members certify compliance with Bar rules that mandate, “All nominal and short-term funds belonging to clients or third persons which are placed in trust with any member of The Florida Bar practicing from an office or other business location within the state of Florida shall be deposited in one or more interest-bearing trust checking accounts in an eligible financial institution for the benefit of the Foundation.”The Florida Bar Foundation may be contacted at (800) 541-2195 (for in-state members only) or (407) 843-0045 to answer IOTA questions. Installments Members who meet eligibility requirements may pay annual fees in three equal installments. The first payment must be postmarked by August 15. To be eligible, members must be in the second or third year since admission to the Bar or be employed by a government agency in a nonelected position that requires the individual to maintain membership in good standing with the Bar. Only annual fees or prorated fees may be paid in installments. Section dues must be paid in full.The three payments must be postmarked by August 15, November 1, and February 1, 2006.

Active members may not elect inactive status online.Those who chose inactive status on last year’s statement will receive an inactive membership fee statement this year. It has many of the same features as the active membership fee statement, but does not allow the inactive member to join sections. Inactive members, however, can become affiliate members of the Out-of-State Practitioners Division or the Administrative Law, Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law, Environmental and Land Use Law, and Tax sections.choosing inactive status, Bar members will reduce their annual fees by $90 and receive automatic exemptions from continuing legal education requirements. They will, however, give up a number of privileges, including the privilege to practice or advise on Florida law or hold a job that requires a Florida law license; to participate in the Bar’s certification program; to vote in Bar elections or be counted for purposes of apportionment of the Board of Governors; and to receive Bar publications, including the Journal and annual directory.Inactive members continue to receive The Florida Bar News.

COVID-19: Central Java students demand ‘creativity’ amid boredom of remote studying

first_imgAmelia Adiputri Diansari, a student at SMA 1 state high school in Sragen, said the apparent lack of digital literacy among teachers had become a major issue as the entire classroom moved into the virtual space as a result of physical-distancing measures.“Many teachers, especially the senior ones, are tech-illiterate. Since the study-from-home policy was issued, these teachers have had difficulty adjusting [to digital platforms],” Amelia said on Wednesday.Amelia, who serves as the head of Central Java Children’s Forum, was among the students from over 35 cities and regencies across the province who were invited to share their remote-learning experiences with Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo on Wednesday.The 150-minute online forum, which was held virtually via video conference, aimed to address issues that students have experienced since they started studying from home. Ganjar encouraged teachers to be more creative in designing learning modules to spark students’ interest.“The point is that [students] need . They need to see their teachers’ faces. Teachers may even assign students projects that they like, such as vlogs,” Ganjar said.According to a recent online survey conducted by the Central Java Children’s Forum in collaboration with the Central Java Child Protection and Empowerment and Population Control Agency, the majority of students are “bored” by the current learning method, Amelia said.“The survey found that 80 percent of students were bored,” she said.She went on to say that, in an unusual display of role-reversal, students have often initiated video conferences themselves to maintain interactivity in the classroom.Read also: Studying from home: Seven online learning platforms for studentsIn a bid to improve the remote-learning experience amid the COVID-19 pandemic, public television broadcaster TVRI regularly airs a full-day education program called Belajar dari Rumah (Study from Home) in cooperation with the Education and Culture Ministry.The programs, for all levels of education from pre-kindergarten to high school, focus on developing student literacy, numeracy and character and life skills.Education and Culture Minister Nadiem Makarim said the program was the ministry’s effort to help students who faced hindrances in remote internet learning.”This program can help students who have limited internet access for economic or geographic reasons,” Nadiem said. (rfa)Topics : Under normal circumstances, teachers usually have the authority to decide how to deliver their lessons on various subjects to their students in the classroom.But the current COVID-19 pandemic has overhauled the old study process as teachers now find themselves under constant pressure to become tech-savvy with the current study-from-home policy. The scheme requires knowledge about the ins and outs of digital communication platforms – largely uncharted territory, especially for older members of the faculty who have been accustomed to markers and whiteboards.In Semarang, Central Java, some students have taken it upon themselves to spice up their remote learning experience, claiming that their teachers have failed to fully adjust to the all-digital reality amid the ongoing public health crisis.last_img read more

Fewer Queenslanders applying for mortgages as housing market cools

first_imgFewer Queenslanders are applying for mortgages according to new research.Mr Luffman said the figures could indicate people were turning to credit to support their household and discretionary spending.“Given the current subdued growth in household incomes, and below-neutral consumer sentiment, it is understandable that Australians may be becoming more circumspect in their use of consumer credit products,” he said.Mortgage applications are a good indicator of homebuyer demand and housing turnover.It comes as Brisbane home prices recorded their slowest rate of growth in four years over the past financial year, rising just two per cent, according to CoreLogic.

Brash’s call on cannabis ‘dopey and dangerous’

first_imgONE News 26 Sep 2011Family First says a call by Act Party leader Don Brash to decriminalise cannabis sends the wrong message. Act leader Don Brash is calling for the decriminalisation of cannabis, saying prohibition of the drug has not worked. Brash told TVNZ’s Q + A programme policing cannabis costs millions of taxpayer dollars and clogs up the court system. But Family First spokesman Bob McCoskrie said decriminalisation tells the public, especially younger people, that small amounts of drug use is no big deal. “Brash also misunderstands the real harm that personal consumption of the drug actually does,” McCoskrie said. He said Act should instead be calling for better treatment facilities for addiction and mental illness. McCoskrie says a zero-tolerance approach to the use of drugs combined with treatment options is a far better solution.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/brash-s-call-cannabis-dopey-and-dangerous-4419091ALSO – ACT leader questions marijuana lawsNZ Herald 25 Sep 2011Act Party leader Don Brash is calling for thought to be given to decriminalising marijuana.

According to L’Equipe, Les Parisiens have sent a letter to the French Football Federation stating their opposition to Mbappe being called up for the Olympics, while Neymar is expected to get similar treatment. Both players, though, are keen to take part in the tournament in Japan, where they could be drawn against South Africa’s U23 national team. The Olympics is not considered an official FIFA tournament, which allows clubs to oppose the release of their players. The main issue stems from the fact that both Mbappe and Neymar seemingly want to play in two international tournaments in the off-season after the 2019/20 club campaign ends.

This is the latest in what is becoming an increasingly strained relationship between Mbappe and PSG, with some of the club’s fans getting more and more frustrated with the 21-year-old’s antics of late.

Vigil Held for Broward Teen Football Star who Committed Suicide by Train

first_img(Deerfield Beach, FL) — A high school football star’s death in Broward County is being ruled a suicide by train and is prompting his friends to confront mental illness. A candlelight vigil was held last night at Deerfield Beach High School for 17-year-old Bryce Gowdy, a wide-receiver prospect headed to Georgia Tech who committed suicide this week by standing in the path of a freight train in Broward County. His death came just days before Gowdy was to leave for college at Georgia Tech, which had given him a football scholarship. A DBHS teammate tells NBC 6 mental illness is very serious, and it’s hard for others to understand what someone might be going through. The death of a Florida teen football star fatally struck by a freight train has been ruled a suicide, officials said.Gowdy’s mom, Shibbon Winelle, said in a video posted to her Facebook page the teen had been “talking in circles” and asking “a lot of questions about spirituality and life” in the days before his death.She said both she and her son battled their own personal “demons,” alluding to mental health struggles.“I said, ‘Bryce, you have to dig within and fight these demons that you’re fighting,’” Winelle said.“I told him I wasn’t strong enough to help him right now, and I have my own demons that I was trying to fight.”She said the family had recently become homeless and she last saw him when she asked him to get her favorite blanket from the car.He never returned, and hours later his body was found near train tracks in Deerfield Beach.Georgia Teach mourned Gowdy’s death in a tweet posted by the team’s coach, Geoff Collins.“Our entire Georgia Tech football family is devastated by the news of Bryce’s passing,” Collins wrote.“Bryce was an outstanding young man with a very bright future. He was a great friend to many, including many of our current and incoming team members. … Bryce and his family will always be a part of the Georgia Tech football family.”last_img read more

Boys soccer Warriors, Wildcats earn league wins

first_img Tags: Bishop Luddenboys soccerWest GeneseeWesthill WG featured a well-balanced attack where four different players – Tom Shields, Jacob Sachar, Josh Rimauldo and David Puma – found the net. Nolan Merritt and Jesper Behr earned assists, with Alex Toumbarcis and Josh Farrell combining for 11 saves.Bishop Ludden, having moved to no. 11 in the state Class C rankings, reinforced that high status in last Tuesday’s 6-1 romp over the LaFayette Lancers, where Michael Gaughan again stood out.Already up 2-0, at halftime, the Gaelic Knights got away with Gaughan pouring in four goals and adding an assist. Mark Collins and Luke Infanti also found the net as Liam Mahar got two assists and Charlie Colella added an assist.At Tully two days later, Ludden again jumped out in front with a pair of first-half goals, only here that was the only thing needed to gain a 2-0 shutout of the Black Knights.Gaughan and Mahar earned the goals, with Colella adding an assist. Tully had plenty of its own chances throughout the game, but goalie Jim McGarvey turned back all 10 of the Black Knights’ shots.Solvay lost, 5-0 to Chittenango last Monday, and then struggled again two days later in a 7-2 defeat to Cazenovia, though Ty Martineau did score a goal and assist on Alex Wilsch’s tally.

Trojans take their final stand at home

first_imgThis is it.For USC’s senior class, Saturday will be its last hurrah at the Coliseum. Although the season may not have gone as planned for the 19 players suiting up for the final time at home, establishing bowl bids and the Pac-10 pecking order will still be at stake when No. 20 USC (8-3, 5-3) takes on Arizona (7-4, 5-3) Saturday at 12:30 p.m.Saying goodbye · Sixth-year defensive back Josh Pinkard will be among the 19 seniors that will suit up at the Coliseum for the final time on Saturday against Arizona. – Mike Lee | Daily TrojanA bid to the Holiday Bowl could be on the line for both the Wildcats and the Trojans, pending the result of Thursday night’s game between Oregon and Oregon State. Both USC and Arizona could finish the season either tied for second in the Pac-10 or tumble down to sixth place.“We’re kind of feeling good about getting back on track after the two weeks prior,” USC coach Pete Carroll said. “We are looking forward to this last go round.”Safety Taylor Mays is among the seniors who will be playing for the final time in the Coliseum. Cornerback Josh Pinkard and offensive guard Jeff Byers will also be making their final starts after six years with USC.“It’s a great group of kids and we hate seeing them go,” Carroll said. “We’d love to send them off on a great note.”Despite securing two late touchdown drives against UCLA, including a controversial decision to throw a touchdown to redshirt junior wide receiver Damian Williams in the final minute, Carroll is still looking for more out of his offense. He said he was especially concerned with the team’s performance on third downs, where penalties and plays for negative yards kept the Trojans behind the chains.USC converted four of 12 third-down attempts last week and ranks 100th out of 120 Football Bowl Subdivision teams in third-down efficiency.“It continues to be an issue,” Carroll said. “Because of the long yardage situations, we gave up on some of them just to kick the football back. We have to improve there.”With junior running back Joe McKnight sitting out practice Wednesday, redshirt junior running back Allen Bradford could see an increased workload following a two-touchdown performance against UCLA. Bradford carried the ball 14 times against the Bruins and helped USC control the ball and keep the clock running late in the game.“We love him being part of the offense,” Carroll said. “So it wouldn’t be any problem for me at all to run him 25 times if that was the case in the game.”The Wildcats have experienced a rocky season in which six of their games have been decided by eight points or less. Last week, Arizona needed a last-second field goal to defeat rival Arizona State.But for all the progress that Arizona has made this season, USC remains one of the few great tests. The Wildcats have not beaten the Trojans in the last seven years, despite holding the contest close in each of the last two years.Arizona coach Mike Stoops said Saturday’s game would be a good measuring stick for how far the program has come.“Competing against USC, I think tells you a lot about where you’re at,” Stoops said. “I think you learn more and more about your team as you go through it. Certainly we’ll see how we match up with USC Saturday.”The Wildcats are still sorting our a series of injuries to several key players on their explosive offense. Junior running back Nic Grigsby is not expected to play Saturday because of a shoulder injury. Sophomore quarterback Nick Foles has a broken non-throwing hand but will still try to play against the Trojans. Backup sophomore quarterback Matt Scott is expected to see time on a handful of plays as a change-of-pace player.But even with the injuries, Carroll noted that the Wildcats’ attack was dangerous because of its versatility.“We have a big preparation in store here to get ready for this thing,” Carroll said. “They’ve scored a lot of points this year and done a lot of good stuff with their offense.”last_img read more

What ensued was one of the biggest wins in Syracuse’s history.

first_imgSeville, Spain | AFP | David de Gea deflected the attention away from Paul Pogba with another spectacular display of goalkeeping as Manchester United came away from their Champions League last 16, first leg against Sevilla in Spain with a 0-0 draw on Wednesday.De Gea made two breathtaking saves to deny Steven N’Zonzi and Luis Muriel at the end of the first half at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, denying Sevilla a lead to take to England for next month’s return.Sevilla were the more likely side, with United offering little going forward despite the presence of Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata in their attack.Lukaku had a late goal disallowed, but United’s was the kind of cautious approach seen time and again in such games by Mourinho’s teams down the years.Their inability, unwillingness even, to get an away goal leaves the tie wide open ahead of the second leg, with United looking to reach the quarter-finals in their first appearance in the knockout stage of the Champions League since 2014.“The only moment where we felt relieved was in the last couple of moments of the first half when from a couple of our mistakes in possession they had a couple of good situations and De Gea made good saves,” said Mourinho.His team managed just one attempt on target to Sevilla’s eight, but Mourinho added: “Apart from that the game was even, but the statistics are what they are.“I really feel the result reflected what the game was — you ask me was it a good result, and I say it was not good and not bad.”Mourinho decided to leave Pogba out of his starting line-up, despite the Frenchman being back in the squad after illness had kept him out of United’s FA Cup win at Huddersfield Town.Fuelling the speculation of an uneasy relationship between Mourinho and the France midfielder, the United manager chose to select 21-year-old Scott McTominay ahead of Pogba in a midfield three. – Pogba thrown on –However, an untimely injury to Ander Herrera meant Pogba was thrown on after just 17 minutes of a first half dominated by the Spanish side.Sevilla, looking to make it past the last 16 of the Champions League after falling in their three previous appearances at this stage over the last decade, could and should have had a goal to show for their performance.De Gea made one good early save low down to deny Colombian Muriel, while Jesus Navas, impressive at right-back, fired just wide after latching onto Ever Banega’s cross-field pass.Stepping up the pressure just before half-time, Joaquin Correa’s shot from a good position was too easy for De Gea, but the Spain ‘keeper displayed all his class as he kept out headed attempts from N’Zonzi and Muriel from point-blank range, both saves requiring breathtaking reactions.The importance to United of not letting in a goal was clear — they had kept eight clean sheets in their 10 matches before heading to Andalusia, with their only defeats in that time coming in the two games in which they had conceded.And they were content to leave Spain with a 0-0 draw, continuing to soak up pressure in the second half and relying on Sevilla’s indecision in the final third.They were also aided by Pablo Sarabia’s inability to find the target from an inviting Muriel cross in the 73rd minute, before Lukaku’s goal was ruled out by French referee Clement Turpin for a handball as he controlled before shooting.“I am very happy with the character shown by the team,” Sevilla’s Italian coach Vincenzo Montella told Spanish television. “We have to be pleased with the performance. The 0-0 leaves everything open.”Whether Mourinho’s team should have been more adventurous will only become clear after the return in Manchester in three weeks.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Levy took money off Modric transfer after Zagreb boss asked for five shirts

first_imgDANIEL LEVY has long been regarded as a driver of a hard bargain.And he lived up to his reputation with a brilliant story about the Spurs chief’s transfer negotiations when he signed Luka Modric.1 Daniel Levy knocked off the price of five Spurs shirts when he signed Luka Modric from Dinamo ZagrebCredit: ReutersThe midfielder, now 34, moved to White Hart Lane from Dinamo Zagreb in the summer of 2008 for around £16.5million.But the Croatian side made one cheeky request: for five Spurs Modric shirts. Levy granted the request – but made Zagreb pay.Speaking to FourFourTwo, then executive director Zdravko Mamic said: “Levy is, in my opinion, the most capable negotiator in the world. I had enough time to experience it and appreciate him.”One funny story, but at the same time a story that shows how he protects the interests of his club, is that after we agreed the transfer of Luka to Tottenham, I politely asked for five of Luka’s jerseys.”Levy gave them to me, but the invoice for the transfer, €23m, was minus the value of the jerseys.”That was quite unbelievable to me. It showed me how to appreciate every penny a club spends.”WORTH EVERY PENNYLevy was determined to make every pound count in a deal which proved a major success.Modric played 159 games for the North Londoners across four seasons before Real Madrid came calling with £30m.In his seven full seasons at the Bernabeu, he has won it all – La Liga, the Copa del Rey, four Champions Leagues and four Club World Cups.He won the Ballon d’Or and Fifa’s The Best last year as he helped Croatia reach the World Cup final. But who knows if he ever covered the cost of those five shirts for his former club.Mamic also gave details of when Spurs tried to sign two more Zagreb players.He added: “I also negotiated the transfer of Allen Halilovic and Tin Jedwaj to Tottenham. My son was their agent and translator. We were sitting in Levy’s office, and sporting director Franco Baldini was there.Latest Tottenham newsHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrong”They offered €10m (£8m) and the secretary brought us tea.

Levy and Baldini realised that I was getting a little more aggressive and then I told them “you go all **** ** mother!”.”After that, we continued the negotiations and agreed on a compensation of €25m (£20m).

“We’re Grateful for Liberians Spirit in Ebola’s Fight”

first_imgThe two United States (US) Army generals who now replaced the other as commander of the U.S.-led Military Operation United Shield in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD) across Africa have both commended Liberians for their resilience and positive  spirit in the fight to contain the disease.The two American top brass military personnel made the commendation over the weekend at the Barclay Training Center (BTC) in Monrovia at the official ceremony marking the Operation United Assistance Joint Force Command’s Transfer of Authority (TOA).At the brief but well coordinated occasion, the former Commander of the force, Major General Darryl Williams,  transferred authority to another Major General, Gary J. Volesky.  The transfer of authority was characterized by military traditional activities.The exercise was attended by Defense Minister Brownie J. Samukai, Jr. and U.S. Ambassador to Liberia, Deborah R. Malac, among other officials.Maj/Gen Volesky replaces Maj. /Gen. Williams, who led  the US soldiers to Liberia since five weeks ago.“The fight to contain EVD is faced with enormous challenges, but we are grateful to Liberians and other partners for their collective efforts to stamp out the disease,” the two soldiers asserted in their separate statements as they, to the delight of the audience,  exchanged colors marking the TOA. In a separate remark earlier, the outgoing commander, Maj/Gen Williams expressed gratitude to authorities at the Ministry of National Defense (MOD), and the Chief of Staff (COS) of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), Brigadier General Daniel Ziankhan, for the “friendship and excellent” leadership qualities exhibited during his tenure, which sets the condition for onward operations of the U.S. Military.According to him, Operation United Shield involves the efforts of the AFL and the U.S. military team to build a united front in the fight against the EVD.For his part, the incoming Commander, Maj/Gen. Volesky, described the exercise as challenging since its  operations have to include the training of healthcare givers in the fight against the EVD and the manning of the various Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs) across the country.Prior to coming to Liberia, he served in his latest assignment as Commanding General, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and Fort Campbell. As the Army Service Component Command for U.S. Africa Command, the US Army Africa, Southern European Task Force (USARAF/SETAF) enables a full spectrum operation, while conducting sustained security engagement with African land forces to promote security, stability, and peace.As directed, USARAF/SETAF deploys a contingency headquarters in support of crisis response. USAARAF is America’s premier Army team dedicated to positive change in Africa such as the fight to contain the outbreak by providing their respective expertise.As of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), it provides the US with an unmatched expeditionary Air Assault capability to conduct forcible entry and other worldwide unified land operations in support of combatant commanders.    Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

69 Corrections Officers Plead for Pay

first_imgSixty nine Corrections Officers, who were recruited, trained and subsequently assigned to various prison facilities throughout the country, are seeking intervention to have their names placed on the government’s payroll.The group claims that since their deployment in October 2014 to man prison facilities in the country, they are yet to receive a dime from the Ministry of Justice (MOJ).The aggrieved officers, who last week walked into the McDonald Street office of the Daily Observer, said they would not get themselves involved into any violent activities, instead they would continue to seek dialogue with relevant government agencies, including the Ministries of Justice and Finance to address their situation.Their spokesman, Jackson K. Kolako, appealed to the Liberian government to place their names on the payroll in keeping with government’s policy.Kolako told this newspaper that “despite the economic hardship imposed on Liberians as a result of the Ebola outbreak, we remained at our respective assigned posts around the country.”According to him, since they were assigned effective October 5, 2014 to present, they have not been paid.“They have not compensated us. We don’t even have proper identification cards (ID cards) neither have we been certificated to confirm that we actually completed our training,” he contended.“Since December,” Mr. Kolako claimed, “the names of 69 of us have not been placed on payroll and we are working without any benefit. Our children are also unable to attend school. This is why we are appealing for our names to be placed on government’s pay system.”According to him, since June last year, they have not be able to meet their domestic responsibilities including making sure that their families are properly fed and sheltered and receive medical attention.Though authorities at the MOJ are yet to make an official statement in response to the officers’ appeal, Kolako claimed that they have already reduced their appeal into several written communications submitted to the MOJ as well as to members of the National Legislature with reference to the office of the Senate Committee on Defense and Intelligence.It may be recalled that during President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s visit on December 23, 2014, to the Monrovia Central Prison, representatives of the concerned 69 corrections officers brought their plight to her attention.The President immediately instructed the Minister of Justice to handle the matter with urgency.A source close to the Minister said the case of the 69 officers is being looked into and that an appropriate action was pending. A highly placed source in the office of the Minister of Justice, Cllr. Benedict Sannoh, has assured the aggrieved officers that their issue will be attended to with the utmost urgency.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Adolescent mothers to be reintegrated into school system

first_img…over 6000 pregnancies recorded in 2 yearsAfter over one year of research and consultations, the National Policy for the Reintegration of Adolescent Mothers into the Formal Education System was on Monday released to the Education Ministry.UNICEF Representative Sylvie Fouet presenting the policy to Education Minister Nicolette HenryWith this initiative – that will be implemented soon – many adolescent mothers will be given an opportunity to complete their formal secondary education and the system will also be used as a preventative measure whereby stakeholders will be sensitized to ensure that the policy is effective.Present at the launch of the policy framework document was the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) representative, Sylvie Fouet, who highlighted that Guyana is second on the list for the highest number of teenage mothers in the Caribbean and Latin America, with about 97 births for every 1000 teenage girls. It is also in close range with The Dominican Republic which tops he list.Some alarming statistics according to her reveal that, “Teen pregnancy is about 20 to 22 per cent or about one out of five teenage girls below the age of 19.”Among the 15 factors that lead to teenage pregnancies as highlighted in the study, it was revealed that some of them include school dropouts, lack of knowledge and difficult relationships with parents and family members, poverty, incest, exploitation and sexual abuse.During interactions with teen mothers, most of them had thoughts of illegal abortion and abandoning their newborn child.Meanwhile, Chief Education Officer Marcel Hutson highlighted that unsuccessful attempts by the Education Ministry to bring awareness in the past could be blamed on the lack of a framework document to use as a guide when dealing with such situations.“A factor that must not be discounted is that many adolescent pregnancies maybe a consequence of forced sex, rather than consensual or risky sexual behaviour and therefore we have a responsibility to protect those girls.”Brief remarks were also given by Education Minister Nicolette Henry who noted that this is a way of modernising education in Guyana.“Teenage pregnancy is a complex issue which has multiple contributing factors that are common knowledge to many. It is a symptom of a bigger societal sickness. It is now just a health issue, but a development issue that is deep-rooted in poverty, gender inequality, violence, child forced marriages, and power imbalances between teenage girls and their partners,” she said.In 2015, some 3712 girls were reported pregnant while in 2016, a total of 3032 were recorded. In both cases, the age range was between 15 to19 years.last_img read more

Springing forward

first_imgTODAY will likely be a challenge to many people who find their computers, PDAs and clocks stuck in the past. One hour in the past. It’s no Y2K-like horror – at least one hopes – but it will surely cause some headaches and minor glitches as we struggle to adjust our technology to an earlier-than-normal spring time change. In 2005, Congress decided to extend daylight to save energy costs. The change will come three weeks earlier and last one week later in the fall. The net gain is hours and hours, but technology is all programmed for a different time change. The move is expected to reduce energy costs as well as give Americans more daylight at the tail of the day – when we need it the most. The days of up-with-the-dawn jobs are, for most of us, over. Yes, this sure is to come with some bumps, but the benefit is sunshine in the evening. Even if our computers aren’t quite ready for the early change to longer days and extra sunlight, we surely are. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WOW! ADAM’S INCREDIBLE HALO SUNSET PICTURE OVER DONEGAL

first_imgAdam’s picture at sunset this eveningDONEGAL photographer Adam Rory Porter has done it again.The man whose pictures of the Northern Lights over the county went global has captured another incredible phenomenon in our skies – a 22 Degree Halo.His picture this evening in Buncrana captures it beautifully “We always get stunning sunsets on the shores of Lough Swilly and every now and then we get the odd rare phenomenon too,” he laughed.A halo is a ring of light surrounding the sun or moon. Most halos appear as bright white rings but in some instances, the dispersion of light as it passes through ice crystals found in upper level cirrus clouds can cause a halo to have colour.A 22 degree halo is a ring of light 22 degrees from the sun (or moon) and is the most common type of halo observed and is formed by hexagonal ice crystals with diameters less than 20.5 micrometers!   WOW!

The Limits of Scientific Speculation

first_imgHow far can a scientist speculate and get a respectful hearing, just because he or she is a scientist?  One case to examine is a story on PhysOrg, “The Chance for Life on Io” (see also Astrobio.net).  Jupiter’s innermost large moon Io might be considered the last place to look for life.  It is the most volcanically active place in the solar system.  Its surface varies between scalding hot lava lakes 1649°C and frozen sulfur dioxide snowfields at -130°F.  Beside that, the surface is bathed in Jupiter’s deadly radiation – and there is no liquid water.  Yet astrobiologist Dirk Schulze-Makuch at Washington State University speculates that there could be life there.    In the article, Schulze-Makuch acknowledges that most other scientists generally dismiss Io as a habitat for life, but he thinks there might have been a time in its history when water ice was plentiful, and if ice was there, liquid water might have been there, too.  If liquid water was there, maybe life was there.  If life evolved, maybe some if it went underground and still survives below the surface.  He thinks that the possibility is enough to warrant a future mission to Io to look for signs of life.    The comments after this article were interesting.  Readers got into questions of creation and evolution, atheism and religion.  One called it sheer speculation, but no one seemed to ask whether it was a scientific practice to engage in this kind of evidence-free speculation.Some of the Darwiniac drive-by mudslingers who pass by this site call what happens here “science bashing.”  OK, please: where is the science in the above PhysOrg story?  If you will point it out, we will gladly respect it and honor it.  Why?  Because we love science here (e.g., 06/12/2010, 06/09/2010 and 650 more “Amazing Facts” entries).  But we deplore nonsense.  Is it OK to bash nonsense?  Would you Darwiniacs join with us in bashing nonsense?    This astrobiologist has asked for willing suspension of disbelief by taking the most unlikely body in the solar system for finding life and telling us it might be under the surface.  OK, let’s play that game.  It might be under the sun, too.  After all, the sun has the building blocks of life: protons and electrons.  The sun is not a very likely place for life now, but early in its history it was cooler.  You never know, maybe life arose in a form we cannot even imagine – and maybe it persists today!  We shouldn’t rule that out.  NASA should send a probe to the sun to search for life under the sun.  (No, we won’t add the old joke about doing it at night.)    That extreme example could be multiplied endlessly with milder examples throughout the solar system.  We could speculate endlessly and mindlessly about life on Mimas, or Ganymede, or Iapetus, Pluto, Venus, Miranda, Triton, whatever.  Lots of bodies have water ice.  Many of them might have liquid water deep down under the surface.  Why stop at the current astrobiology favorites of Mars, Titan and Europa?  As long as evidence isn’t required, speculate at will.  All that is necessary is (1) Be a “scientist” in the modern sense (i.e., have a degree, work at a university), which entails no obligation of being correct, and (2) have the Darwinians on your side.  Then you are guaranteed to have a lapdog press to propagandize your views without critical analysis, and an army of Darwin Dobermans who will viciously attack anyone who calls your nonsense speculations “nonsense” as engaging in “science bashing.”  Most of our readers are astute enough to see what is going on.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Learn From the Pros: Reverse Engineer an After Effects Template

first_imgHow To Change the Frame Rate of an After Effects TemplateOne of the things you might want to change in your purchased template is the frame rate. Many templates are created at 29.97 frames per second, which is fine for US customers, but if you’re in Europe you might want to adjust them to the PAL 25pfps. An easy way to do this all in one go is to download and install a free script from redefinery.com, called rd_compsetter. This is actually one of 50 free scripts you can grab in this bundle.To install a script, simply drag and drop the rd_compsetter.jsx file into and restart After Effects if it’s already open.Mac = Applications > Adobe After Effects CC 2015 > ScriptsWindows = Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CC 2015 \Support Files\ScriptsTo run the script, first select all of the folders in the project panel and then hit File > Script > rd_compsetterAdjust the frame rate to whatever you need it to be, and every composition in the project will be updated at once. If you have a template that also includes some video elements, and not just After Effects graphics animations, then you might want to use the interpret footage function as well. What You Can Learn Breaking Down an After Effects ProjectOne of the benefits of breaking down another motion graphic artist’s project file is that you can not only learn from what they have done, but the way in which they have done it.For example, they might have a shortcut to achieving an effect you’ve been taking the long way around with. You can also learn how to structure and organize your projects in a more professional manner, or at the very least you can learn to replicate specific techniques with ease.How to Reveal the Hidden MagicBefore we go any further you’ll want to make sure any investigation work you do – which might also involve messing things up by accident – is done in a duplicate of your project. So just make sure you save a copy of the original project file for safe keeping.One of the good things about RocketStock’s After Effects projects is that all the inner workings are normally hidden from view. So for simple use — update the logo, change the text, adjust the colours — it’s very straight forward. But for our purposes, we need to see what’s really happening under the hood.To do this you simply need to click on the ‘Shy Guy’ icon to reveal every layer that has been set to hidden by the creator. The image before shows the project as it is when you originally open it.As you can see, this reveals everything that’s going on to make this lower third function. Another useful keyboard shortcut to use is ‘U’ which reveals all of the animated parameters in a selected layer. Even more helpfully a quick double tap of ‘UU’ will reveal all animated layers in the composition. In the image below, you can see all the animated properties for the first layer. Understand the ConnectionsAnother useful thing to check out, in order to understand how all of the compositions are connected and working together, is to open up the ‘composition mini flow chart’ from the tool bar in the top of the timeline for a quick view, or click on the main flowchart panel via Window > Flowchart. Learning Point – Fonts Matter MostThe most obvious thing that you can learn from looking at someone else’s motion graphics work is that good design is a LOT about choosing a great font.In these lower third layouts in the lower thirds package Venue, you can see two fonts at work in the capitalized title and lower case subtitle; Monserrat and Myriad Pro. The take away here is that although there are two fonts at work, they actually look very similar, which helps to keep the design looking clean and the legibility high, making it easy to read.A good design principle is to have one font and vary the weighting (bold, italic, thin etc) to create visual contrast, rather than chucking in too many random fonts. Although sometimes you are simply lumbered with the clients terrible font and have to make do. If you’re after some free fonts for motion design, this previous PremiumBeat post is a good place to start.If you’re looking to learn more about what makes for good design – including font selection, layout, and much more, then I would highly recommend this series on lynda.com, which breaks down some simple design situations and unpacks the essential principles.

If you’re looking to improve your After Effects abilities, an easy way to learn is to break down an After Effects Template.Whether you are learning After Effects for the first time, or an experienced user trying to improve your skills, one way to learn from other professional motion graphics artists is to break down their work and see how they’re making the magic happen. Now, you can do this with a keen eye and a lot of experimentation as you try to mimic reference material — such as a cool trailer, title sequence or animation — but you still need to know what you’re doing in order to recreate their techniques.An easier way is to simply buy a copy of their work and open up their After Effects project file and see exactly how they did it. How can you do this? Through sites like RocketStock.com, where you can get free and paid After Effects templates like the one below.last_img read more

How to Make an Impromptu Shot Usable for Your Film

first_imgYou stumble across a scene that would work perfectly in your film or video project — but all you have is your camera. How do you capture an impromptu moment without a tripod or other support gear and still make it look pro?Top image via ShutterstockIt’s crazy to think that the compact camera you keep in your backpack to take pictures of your dog at the park might also be the camera responsible for capturing stunt footage in the latest billion-dollar grossing blockbuster. It’s crazy, yes. But, it’s also true, thanks to the ever-increasing speed of industry innovation.So, what steps should you take when something worth including in your next project suddenly appears during your day-to-day adventures? Obviously, you quickly grab the camera from your backpack, but you have zero of support gear  — no lights, no mics, etc. — so what next?The following steps can help you obtain good clips in an impromptu setting. Of course, this will not be a one-stop shop for all improvised settings — these steps will work best for establishing shots.Step 1: Dial in Your Camera SettingsVideo Playerhttps://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Original.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: https://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Original.mp4?_=100:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.I took the video above during a recent hike. The scenery was perfect for a project I was working, but, unfortunately, I only had my camera. No tripod in sight. Not only that, I was on an uneven surface with a slight wind blowing me off balance. Not the best situation to start with. As you can see, there’s a bit of camera shake, and it looks quite unprofessional.Before hitting record, I increased the resolution from 1080p to 4k. Even though the rest of my project was being delivered in 1080p, it was crucial to capture this spontaneous shot in the highest resolution possible.This approach will help greatly in post when it comes time to stabilize the footage. Additionally, this approach adds some wiggle room should you decide to include a pan or tilt. Lastly, take note — if you know there might be a chance of cropping your image, it’s always best to move back a little before you hit record.Step 2: Stabilize as Much as PossibleImage via ShutterstockYou could say that two of the core principles of a professional shot are stability and movement. A stable shot is going to look better than a clip that’s shaking too much. A moving shot, for the most part, will look better (or at least add more character) than a stable shot.It’s important to note that there’s a difference between camera shake and handheld cinematography. When you hold a camera with just your hands, every step, vibration, and movement is transferred directly to the camera itself. The lighter the camera, the more kinetic energy will be visible within the footage. There’s no absorption to counterbalance the movement.With larger cameras (or with cameras on a shoulder rig) you have several more points of connection with your body, and the energy of the movement is dispersed more evenly.Because you’ll be running your footage through a stabilizer in post-production, your shot needs to be as stable as possible. Leave pans and tilts for post, too, as those kinds of shots are almost impossible to pull off handheld.I would suggest resting your camera on your camera bag or the flattest surface possible. If you haven’t already, it’s always worth acquiring a camera beanbag. They fit in the average rucksack and are perfect for situations like this.Step 3: Make Post-Production TweaksAs discussed above, this kind of impromptu footage benefits greatly from stabilization. If you’re working with After Effects, here is an excellent guide offering several ways to do just that.When your shot is fixed, you need to change the composition size from 4k to 1080p, and scale down your footage (as you can see in the image above). Leave some over-trim on the side or top if you want to include a pan or tilt.To increase or decrease the scale of a shot/media file within After Effects, select a layer within your timeline and hit S on the keyboard. With the shot scaled down and selected, hit P on your keyboard to bring up the position control, and click the stopwatch to activate a key frame. Move your timeline cursor near the end of the clip, and then move the position of the shot according to if you are creating a pan or tilt.To make the movement look more legit, change the end keyframe to an Easy Ease by selecting the keyframe and pressing F9. This will slow the movement down toward the end, instead of abruptly coming to a stop.Finally, apply your color correction to match the sequence within your project, and you are good to go. Here’s the before and after:Video Playerhttps://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/720-Tilt.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: https://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/720-Tilt.mp4?_=200:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.As you can see, the shot has been transformed from something filmed spontaneously with no support gear into something that looks like it was shot on a tripod.If your DSLR doesn’t support 4k or a higher resolution than 1080p, you can still achieve the same effect by using a 1080p letterbox rather than scaling the footage down.So, to recap, take these steps to make impromptu footage look like it was planned all along:Film in the highest resolution possible.Find your framing, then step back a few paces.Stabilize the camera as much as possible before recording.Stabilize the footage in post-production.Convert the composition to a smaller resolution.Downscale the footage.Add a position keyframe, and then move the shot up, down, left or right.Apply your color grade.Celebrate a job well done.

Congress drawing political mileage from floods and calamity: BJP

first_imgThe war of words between the BJP and Opposition over management of the floods continues with the Congress and its senior leadership being accused of politicising the rescue and relief operation. This follows former chief minster Prithviraj Chavan’s allegation last week that the government was biased against the flood-hit western Maharashtra and may have responded differently if it had affected Vidarbha, a BJP stronghold and home to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. State unit BJP spokesperson Madhav Bhandari pointed out that the CM had cancelled his Vidarbha tour and returned to Mumbai to hold an emergency cabinet meeting. “He then went to New Delhi to participate in the last rites of Sushma Swaraj only to come back and visit Kolhapur the same day. This CM is 24×7 focussed. He even cancelled a tour to Russia,” said Mr Bhandari. Comparing the relief work to that during the 2005 floods, Mr. Bhandari said while over a thousand people had died then, not everyone was adequately compensated by the then government. Not everyone benefited from the State’s schemes and the Congress should ponder over the fact that it left Mumbai to fend for itself under the watch of its then leader from western Maharashtra, he said. “Mr. Chavan should be concerned about the work done by his party’s government during the 2005 floods,” Mr. Bhandari said.last_img read more

Viswanathan Anand holds Hikaru Nakmura in Sinquefield Cup first round

first_imgViswanathan Anand, the five-time world champion, started the Sinquefield Cup with a draw against USA’s Hikaru Nakmura on Saturday. Sinquefield Cup in St. Louis is a part of the Grand Chess tour.Anand, who finished last in the rapid and blitz event earlier this month, did not give Nakamura any chance to hold the American to an easy draw.The pieces changed hands at regular intervals as Anand equalised with a typical central breakthrough in the middle game and the players arrived at a drawn queen and pawns endgame in quick time where the peace was a just result.Shakhriyar Mamedyarov of Azerbaijan got off to a flier cruising past Wesley So of the US.In the other decisive game of the day, Levon Aronian of Armenia came up with a brilliant endgame show to beat Sergey Karjakin of Russia.The other two games in the ten-player round-robin tournament ended in draws as Maxime Vachier-Lagrave split the point with world champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway and USA’s Fabiano Caruana could not make much headway against Alexander Grischuk of Russia.With eight rounds still remaining in the 300000 USD prize money tournament, Mamedyarov and Aronian emerged as early leaders with one point, while Anand, Nakamura, Carlsen, Vachier-Lagrave, Caruana and Grischuk follow them at half point behind.It turned out to be a good day for Mamedyarov who enjoyed his typical variety of chess with complications remaining for the major part.Until a week ago, Wesley So was leading the Grand Chess tour but the pounding in rapid and blitz and the first round loss here means that the Filipino-turned-American will have to recover lost ground.advertisementIt was another Queen’s gambit declined of the day but Mamedyarov put pressure on the king side to win a pawn by force. The technicalities remained but the Azerbaijani made it look like child’s play and it was a picturesque finale where the checkmate was imminent.Aronian outwitted Karjakin out of a Berlin defense game as white. Slow manoeuvring throughout the game out of a level position ensued in the queen-less middle game and Karjakin was the first to err. Aronian wrapped it up in 69 moves.Results round 1: Hikaru Nakamura (Usa) drew with V Anand (Ind); Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (Fra) drew with Magnus Carlsen (Nor); Fabiano Caruana (Usa) drew with Alexander Grischuk (Rus); Shakhriyar Mamedyarov (Aze) beat Wesley So (Usa); Levon Aronian (Arm) beat Sergey Karjakin (Rus).(With inputs from PTI)last_img read more

The fact that he missed out at CWG 2018 perhaps pushed him even more and in the end, he was able to fulfill one of his aims in Jakarta.”It was one of my aims to win a medal [at the Asian Games]. The practice for the Games was extremely good in Czech Republic, where there was a nice weather and good food. I also got a lot of competition and companionship in practice there,” Anas told IndiaToday.in.advertisementAnas topped the charts in both the rounds before the Final and clocked a brilliant 45.30 seconds in the Semifinals. During the Final, he got off the blocks brilliantly but faded away towards the end and just about managed to hold on to a silver medal.Also read – Asian Games 2018: Muhammed Anas wins men’s 400m silverAnas accepted that fatigue played its part in his run at the Final but was still happy to have achieve the silver medal finish.”Yes, I got fatigued after the Semifinals and I guess that affected my run a bit but I want to thank God that I won a medal here.”During the Heats and Semifinals in Jakarta, it was evident how Anas attempted to break into massive speed in the last 100m at so to give himself a chance to win the race.Like it was seen even with India’s newest sensation Hima Das during her IAAF U20 World Championships gold medal run, she burst in the last 80 metres to take the gold.Anas said how he and his coach worked extremely hard on his speed ahead of the Asian Games and it bore its fruit. However, he added that he still needs to get better in that aspect and managed his body better.”During the practice for the Asian Games, we lay special focus on my speed. I still need to develop my speed further to run better,” Anas said.Sunday proved be a silver day for India in athletics as along with Anas, Hima and Dutee Chand also won silver medals in Women’s 400m and Women’s 100m, respectively.By the end of Day 8 of the Asian Games 2018, India stood at ninth in the medals tally table with 36 medals — 7 gold, 10 silver and 19 bronze.last_img read more

Messi and Suarez lead Barca to Rayo victory

first_imgMadrid: Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez might have been rested but instead both played and scored as Barcelona came from behind to beat Rayo Vallecano, ahead of their crunch Champions League second leg against Lyon. Raul de Tomas’ scintillating strike gave struggling Rayo a surprise lead at the Camp Nou but Messi converted a penalty and Suarez finished a brilliant passing move to seal a 3-1 win, after Gerard Pique had headed in an equaliser on Saturday. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football togetherWhen Barca kicked off, Atletico Madrid had just completed their own 1-0 victory over Leganes, although Diego Simeone was more cautious, resting Antoine Griezmann, Alvaro Morata and Saul Niguez, with Tuesday’s trip to Juventus in mind. “It is normal when there is an important game on Tuesday,” said Simeone, who substituted Griezmann at half-time. “He was not injured, he had just given all that he had to give.” There was always a risk that La Liga’s top two might take their eye off the ball, given Barcelona’s last 16-tie with Lyon hangs in the balance after a goalless draw in France, while Atletico hold a 2-0 lead over Juve but can expect an onslaught in Turin. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian Open”We have a crucial match on Wednesday,” Ernesto Valverde said. “We know the importance it has for many reasons — because of the opponent, the competition and because we have seen what has happened to other big teams already.” Yet both avoided slip-ups to leave Real Madrid even further adrift in La Liga before they play away at Real Valladolid on Sunday. Barca stay seven points clear of Atletico and, temporarily at least, move 15 ahead of Real. Even with a two-goal cushion for the final eight minutes, Ernesto Valverde kept Messi and Suarez on until the end, which may have surprised some, given he was accused of exhausting key players last season at the expense of success in Europe. Messi’s appearance was his 443rd for Barcelona in La Liga, moving him ahead of Andres Iniesta and behind only Xavi Hernandez, on 505, in the club’s all-time list. Samuel Umtiti started his second match in three months after recovering from a knee injury. “Little by little he is reaching his level,” said Valverde. But Philippe Coutinho was underwhelming again, despite being picked ahead of Ousmane Dembele. He poked an early chance wide after a Messi cross and De Tomas put Rayo in front soon after, driving at Pique before unleashing a sizzling shot past Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Pique headed one Messi free-kick wide and then another in at the near post, nipping in front of Rayo goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski to nod in his sixth goal of the season. Dembele came on for Arthur Melo at half-time and Coutinho dropped deeper, but it was right-back Nelson Semedo that earned the penalty, after a foul from Jordi Amat. Messi made no mistake. Rayo’s belief, and energy, melted away and Barca’s third was their best of the night. Suarez freed Dembele down the right and he found Suarez again with a pull-back. Instead of shooting, Suarez bounced the ball off Ivan Rakitic in the area before finally tapping home. There was nothing as free-flowing at the Wanda Metropolitano where perhaps the greatest show of creativity came from Leganes, whose players wore shirts with the name of their mothers on their backs to celebrate International Women’s Day on Friday. The first half was almost entirely forgettable but despite the absence of attacking punch, Griezmann came off at half-time for Thomas Lemar, with no visible sign of an injury. Griezmann would have taken the penalty soon after, won by Angel Correa with some quick feet in the area, which lured Kenneth Omeruo into a clumsy challenge. Saul stepped up and missed, but tucked in the rebound after Andriy Lunin could only push the ball back into his path.last_img read more

Rao Inderjit Singh, a Union Minister and son of former Haryana Chief Minister Rao Birender Singh, is in fray from Gurgaon. Singh, the sitting MP from Gurgaon, had ended his family’s decades old association with the Congress ahead of the 2014 elections and joined the BJP. Kuldeep Sharma, a former Haryana Speaker, the Congress candidate from Karnal is also in the fray to retain his family legacy. The Karnal seat was won by his late father Chiranji Lal four times in a row, thrice defeating BJP bigwig Sushma Swaraj. Also in the fray are Hooda father-son duo with Bhupender Singh Hooda, a former Haryana Chief Minister, contesting from Sonepat constituency and his son Deepender Singh Hooda contesting from Rohtak. The Hooda son, who is a sitting MP from Rohtak constituency, was the lone Congress candidate to win in 2014 Lok Sabha elections. However, the Hoodas do not see a problem with dynasty politics. He told PTI, “if people have been voting for us for several terms means they have faith in us and find us credible. What is the problem with that?” PTIlast_img read more

Morocco Frente Polisario remain far apart on Western Sahara – Ban Kimoon

Morocco and the Frente Polisario are still far apart on how to provide for the self-determination of the people of Western Sahara, despite the two parties’ commitment to a process of negotiations, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says in a new report.Mr. Ban writes that during the latest round of talks, held earlier this month in Manhasset, New York, the two sides held several sessions of face-to-face discussions but did not examine specific elements in each other’s proposals.“Although the parties dynamically interacted with each other, there was hardly any exchange that could be characterized as negotiations,” he states, adding that “their stated position remained far apart on ways to achieve a just, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution.”The talks – attended also by Algeria and Mauritania as neighbouring countries – were limited largely to preliminary discussions on thematic subjects such as administration, competencies and organs, while the parties discussed but did not agree on any confidence-building measures.But Mr. Ban notes that in a communiqué issued by his Personal Envoy for Western Sahara, Peter van Walsum, after the talks, the two sides “agreed on the need to move the process into a more intensive and substantive phase of negotiations.”Morocco and Frente Polisario also welcomed the intention of Mr. van Walsum to visit the region shortly for in-depth consultations and agreed to re-convene for a fourth round of talks in Manhasset, scheduled for 11 to 13 March.The UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) has been in the Territory since September 1991 to monitor the ceasefire between Morocco and the Frente Polisario. 29 January 2008Morocco and the Frente Polisario are still far apart on how to provide for the self-determination of the people of Western Sahara, despite the two parties’ commitment to a process of negotiations, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says in a new report. read more

Nicaragua UN rights chief alarmed by imminent expulsion of key human rights

According to High Commissioner Bachelet, the two non-profit human rights organisations were set up by the Inter-American Commission for Human Rights (IACHR), “in full cooperation with the Government after the violence and unrest earlier this year”. One of them is MESENI, a follow-up mechanism from IACHR set up specifically for Nicaragua, and the other is known as GIEI – the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts.“After the earlier cancellation of the registration and confiscation of properties of national NGOs working on human rights, the de facto expulsion of the two IACHR organizations means there are now virtually no functioning independent human rights bodies left in Nicaragua,” said Ms. Bachelet, who added that “the Government has said it will no longer accept visits by the IACHR itself”.Civil society is in danger of being shut out altogether, and international organizations are also struggling to keep operating – UN rights chief Michelle BacheletSince April, when student-led protests began in response to a decree which raised taxes and ordered changes to social security, hundreds have been arrested. The UN human rights office (OHCHR), has received reports that fair trial rights of protesters and their leaders are being violated.According to media reports, the violence and civil unrest has led to around 300 deaths, and a report from the UN rights office in late August, detailed numerous violations carried out by Nicaraguan security forces, including extra-judicial killings and enforced disappearances. The report noted that 22 police officers had also lost their lives. “Coupled with the parallel clamp-down on independent media, including last weekend’s raids on media outlets, the net result is a country where civil society is in danger of being shut out altogether, and international organizations are also struggling to keep operating,” warned the UN Human Rights High Commissioner.“These actions by the Government make resolution of the crisis affecting the country much more difficult and risk blocking all dialogue within the country, with neighbouring states and with the international community at large, with possible wide-ranging consequences,” she added, hoping that some common ground can be found with the Government so this trend can be reversed. read more

Scottish economy performed half as well as UK last year

first_img“By making Scotland the highest taxed part of the UK, the Scottish Government risks damaging, rather than growing, our economy.”Dean Lockhart, the Tory economy spokesman said the SNP could not blame anyone else, adding: “It’s not because of Brexit and not because of Westminster. It’s been caused by the actions of a short-sighted, high-tax and anti-business SNP government.” Nicola Sturgeon said her government was working to support businessCredit:PA New figures have revealed that Scotland’s economy performed only half as well as the rest of the UK last year, amid warnings that tax hikes taking effect from Friday risk damaging to economic growth.The latest Scottish Government statistics show that GDP grew by 0.3 per cent in the last three months of 2017.Annual growth for Scotland was 0.8 per cent higher than the previous 12 months, but the UK economy grew over the same period by 1.8 per cent.The Scottish Conservatives said the statistics were the fault of SNP administrations that have been in charge of the country’s economy for more than a decade.David Mundell, the Scottish Secretary, claimed that while it was good that GDP continued to grow, for the fourth quarter in a row, it was ”increasingly concerning that a significant gap persists between Scotland’s economy and the rest of the UK”.He added: “The Scottish Government has the powers to boost productivity and strengthen the economy, and must use them to close this gap.

UK growth itself is pretty pathetic.”Nicola Sturgeon, visiting a power firm in Dumbarton, said her government was working to support businesses despite t”he Brexit headwinds”.She added: “This is the fourth consecutive quarter of positive economic growth in Scotland and we are seeing growth his year that is stronger than the growth in our economy last year.”Its important that we continue to support businesses and companies across Scotland to see that growth accelerate – that’s why we’re investing in research and development, its why we’ve set out plans to establish a National Investment Bank, investing in manufacturing and supporting the economy in every way.”Of course one of the biggest challenges Scotland and the UK faces over the next few years is Brexit, which is why its so in the interests of our economy to see Scotland remaining in the single market.”Jamie Hepburn, Minister for Employability and Training, said that compared to the same point in 2016, Scotland’s economy grew by 1.1 per cent. nicola sturgeon “Scotland deserves better than SNP ministers content to put their fingers in their ears, do nothing and blame bad economic performance on Brexit.” Scotland’s quarterly growth was slightly up from the previous quarter figure of 0.2 per cent, and slightly behind the 0.4 per cent economic growth seen across Britain.However, construction decline by 2.6 per cent, the eighth consecutive fall, with agriculture, forestry and fishing also reduced.The services sector, making up about 75 per cent of Scotland’s economy, grew by 0.5 per cent while output in the production sector was up by 0.9 per cent. David Mundell said Scottish Government tax hikes risked damaging the economyCredit:Getty The Scottish Parliament ratified the SNP administration’s tax plans in February, which will mean people earning over £26,000 paying more tax than those south of the border.The new five-band system creates a 19p “starter” rate for lower earners and a 21p “intermediate” rate for earnings over £24,000. A penny has also been added to both the higher and top rates of tax, making them 41p and 46p respectively.Jackie Baillie, Scottish Labour’s economy spokesman, said any amount of economic growth was welcome, but claimed the figures exposed “how Scotland’s pitiful economic growth under the SNP is low and slow”.She added: “Scotland’s economy is still lagging far behind the rest of the UK, while the continued contraction in the construction sector is a particular concern. He added: ”These figures are welcome, but we are determined to do more to grow our economy.”last_img read more

Armed Forces told to ignore rank in bid to prevent suicides

The higher degree of risk and pressure in the armed forces can lead to suicidal thoughts, the Samaritans says, as new support is offered to service personnel.Credit:Heathcliff O’Malley The higher degree of risk and pressure in the armed forces can lead to suicidal thoughts, the Samaritans says, as new support is offered to service personnel. Soldiers must report their superiors if they think they are a suicide risk, the first ever suicide prevention booklet given to the armed forces says.The new pocket guide to help armed forces personnel spot and support those who may be struggling with their mental health will be launched on September 4th. The guide, jointly launched by Samaritans and the Ministry of Defence, gives advice on how to identify signs that someone may be having difficulties and considering suicide. It suggests ways of offering support and gives information on where help can be found.All military personnel and reserves, some 200,000 people, will have access to either a hard copy or digital version of the booklet.A loss of personal discipline, drinking alone and appearing “not quite there” are all warning signs, the guide says. Using negative statements such as ‘it’s like everything is against me’ could be an indication the individual is struggling.‘Being in the armed forces means you are exposed to a higher degree of risk and pressure than you might expect in other jobs,’ the booklet states. The guide champions ‘looking after your mates’ and is specifically designed to promote peer support amongst those serving, regardless of rank.   Gavin Williamson, the Defence Secretary, said: “Mental health issues can affect anyone and I want to ensure no one in our military suffers in silence. It is vital that service personnel know where to turn to in times of crisis, and this guide will raise awareness of the support available”.“By helping our people to spot the early signs that someone may be struggling, we give them the best chance of a full recovery.”The booklet will also help personnel spot signs that colleagues may be having suicidal thoughts and provides information on how such a situation should be approached, and where support is available.The military rate of suicide was 8 per 100,000 in 2017, compared to 18 per 100,000 in the general population in 2016. Although the number of military personnel who take their lives continues to be below rates for the general population, Minister for Defence People and Veterans, Tobias Ellwood, said: “We’re committed to ensuring that those who need help are able to get the support they need”.Mr Ellwood has previously championed the cause of mental health care for the armed forces, having revealed his army veteran uncle killed himself having suffered depression in silence.The guide acknowledges suicide is a complex issue and says there is rarely only one reason why someone chooses to take their own life. It highlights homesickness, losing custody of a child, long-term separation and the recent loss of a friend or loved one as being possible triggers. Loss of identity for those leaving the armed forces is also a concern.The booklet is the first in a series of joint initiatives by the Samaritans and the MoD to offer training and support to serving personnel, veterans and their families who are struggling with mental health issues. The programme has been funded by £3.5 million from fines levied on the banking industry for manipulating the LIBOR rate.Samaritans CEO, Ruth Sutherland, said: “Samaritans is committed to bringing the expertise we have gained in training people to provide peer support to the military, in order to prevent suicides. This is the first step in a journey to provide a variety of support for serving personnel, veterans, reservists and their families.”The Ministry of Defence is now spending £220 million over the next decade to improve mental health services for serving personnel. In February of this year, the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson also announced the establishment of a 24-Hour Mental Health Helpline for serving personnel and their families, funded by the MoD and run by the charity Combat Stress.

Police hunting £48m golden lavatory thieves release man 66 on bail

Guide book showing the location of works by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan at Blenheim Palace including “America”, a solid gold toilet that has apparently been stolen.Credit:Heathcliff O’Malley Guide book showing the location of works by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan at Blenheim Palace including "America", a solid gold toilet that has apparently been stolen. “From the speed the robbery was executed we can say for sure they are great performers,” he said.“Dear thieves, please, if you are reading this, let me know how much you like the piece and how it feels to pee on gold,” he added.Cattelan described his golden lavatory as “the 1 per cent for the 99 per cent, and I hope it still is. I want to be positive and think the robbery is a kind of Robin Hood-inspired action.” The golden lavatory, on display in New York Investigating officer Detective Inspector Jess Milne said: “We are still actively searching for the stolen piece of artwork and there will be a continued police presence in and around the palace while this search continues.“We believe a group of people used at least two vehicles during the burglary, which was reported to Thames Valley Police at 4.57am on Saturday.“Investigations are continuing and it is our main priority to locate the stolen item and the offenders involved.“I would urge anybody with any information about the burglary, no matter how insignificant you believe this to be, to call the 24-hour non-emergency number 101, quoting URN 273.” “Who’s so stupid to steal a toilet? America was the 1% for the 99%, and I hope it still is. I want to be positive and think the robbery is a kind of Robin Hood-inspired action…”- Maurizio Cattelan#RIPgoldtoilethttps://t.co/Ol7x6CfGjF pic.twitter.com/4QLBuCbgZN— Blenheim Palace (@BlenheimPalace) September 16, 2019 Blenheim Palace said the robbery caused  “significant damage and flooding” and released a picture of the stall today.The lavatory, plumbed into the water system so that visitors could fully engage with the artwork, is worth £4.8 million and its creator, Maurizio Cattelan, 58, said the burglars who stole it were “the real artists”. Mr Hare did not think the man was an employee and had no idea how police had connected him to the lavatory. Police searching for a gang of burglars who stole a solid gold lavatory from Blenheim Palace have released a 66 year-old man on bail.He had been taken in for questioning just hours after the artwork was ripped out of an interior wall at the country house where Winston Churchill was born.This morning, Dominic Hare, Chief Executive of Blenheim Palace told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “You always take a risk in showing art. We have a sophisticated security system, but are now challenged to look hard at ourselves.”Last month, Edward Spencer-Churchill, half-brother of the current Duke of Marlborough and founder of the Blenheim Art Foundation, told the Sunday Times: “It’s not going to be the easiest thing to nick.“Firstly, it’s plumbed in and secondly, a potential thief will have no idea who last used the toilet or what they ate. So no, I don’t plan to be guarding it.” “Our imagination runs wild, but they are still holding him so they must be convinced there’s a clear connection,” he added.Asked if the artist could have played a part in the theft, Mr Hare said: “I think he would be mortified by that suggestion and has said so. That simply hasn’t happened here.”But he is right. He feels like he is in a heist movie and I think it took him quite a few minutes to comprehend that this had actually happened.”He was mortified, shocked, praying that it was a prank and that it would come back. Now he’s just reflecting, I think.”Ticket holders who booked three-minute time slots to see the fully functioning lavatory will be reimbursed.“They could fully perform on it if they wished, but most people couldn’t time it that way so they just took selfies,” Mr Hare said.

Crack down on illegal puppy farms

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Victorian government is cracking down on illegal puppy farms by introducing tough new penalties, massive fines for cruelty, equipping the RSPCA with new policing and confiscation powers, seizing profits and assets of illegal puppy farms and establishing an Animal Welfare Fund. “Legislation being introduced into Parliament this week will deliver on our election commitment to crack down on illegal puppy farms and ensure operators are held accountable for the welfare of animals in their care,” Mr Baillieu said. “We are not going to tolerate cruelty to animals and these are some of the strongest laws ever introduced to protect animals from abuse and neglect. “I am appalled by the images I have seen of abused and helpless animals and we will be establishing a $1.6 million Animal Welfare Fund to assist organisations that provide care and treatment for these abused animals. “The legislation will also make it illegal to sell or advertise the sale of puppies without a microchip identification number or notice, giving the community confidence that puppies sold are only from legitimate breeders,” Mr Baillieu said. The crackdown includes: • an increase in maximum penalties for puppy farms operating illegally, from $1,195 to $20,000• penalties of up to $30,000 for rogue operators that breach a Code of Practice• a ban on owning animals, of up to 10 years, for those found guilty of operating un-registered puppy farms or breaching a code of conduct• the introduction of a new offence for breeding establishments that fail to provide a microchip number (or council domestic animal business registration number) in an advertisement for a dog or cat• the potential seizure of profits, assets and property of illegal puppy farm operatorslast_img read more

Unattended stove caused Christmas Eve house fire in Vancouver

first_imgThe Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office determined a Christmas Eve fire in the Oakbrook neighborhood that killed a cat and dog was caused by an unattended stove.A resident at the home in the 3500 block of N.E. 103rd Ave., south of the interchange for Interstate 205 and state Highway 500, prepared food and left for a friend’s residence, according to Lead Deputy Fire Marshal Chad Lawry.“They left the stove on. A pot of oil caught fire and spread,” Lawry said.Crews with the Vancouver Fire Department were dispatched to the home about 1:15 p.m. Arriving firefighters found smoke and flames billowing from around the front door, department spokesman Joe Spatz said. Battalion Chief Tige Harmon said firefighters had the fire out in less than 10 minutes, and the fire was contained to the kitchen.Flames spread from the stove to cabinets and then outward from there, Lawry said. The kitchen is destroyed, he said, and intense heat damaged parts of the home, but it should be repairable.No one was home at the time of the fire.Spatz said firefighters found a dog inside unconscious and were able to resuscitate it, but a cat and another dog were killed. The fire displaced two people living at the house and two pets.The deputy fire marshal estimated the total monetary loss to be around $61,000.last_img read more

Senate Seems Poised to Disapprove of Wall Emergency

first_img ADC AUTHOR Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) became the fourth senator to say he’ll back a House-passed resolution reversing President Trump’s declaration to use military construction funds to build a southern border wall.“I can’t vote to give the President the power to spend money that hasn’t been appropriated by Congress,” Paul said Sunday, according to the Bowling Green Daily News. “We may want more money for border security, but Congress didn’t authorize it. If we take away those checks and balances, it’s a dangerous thing.”Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) have said they will support the resolution when it comes to the Senate floor. If four Republicans join all Democrats, the resolution would pass in the Senate, but Congress does not seem to have the votes to override a promised veto.DOD photo by U.S. Army Sgt. Amber I.

Wellknown eateries in Balurghat run without Food Safety Licences

first_imgBalurghat: Most of the well-known eateries running in Balurghat have no ‘Food Safety Licences’.The matter came to light following joint drives conducted by the officials of the concerned district Food Safety Department and Balurghat Civic Body over the past two days.It may be mentioned that the state Urban Development department has instructed all civic bodies to conduct raids at restaurants and eateries after a racket selling rotten and stale meat was unearthed in Kolkata. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe concerned officials have asked the owners of the restaurants and eateries to follow the food safety norms strictly, failing which they will close down the establishments.During the drives, the officials found that the hotels and restaurants are being run flouting the mentioned norms. In most of the restaurants, the kitchens are being run in unhygienic conditions. However, no stale and rotten meat was found stored in the freezers.

Hydro cyber attack shuts down several metal extrusion plants

first_imgOne of the largest producers of aluminum in the world, Norsk Hydro, was hit by a cyber attack in the company’s IT system on Monday evening affecting major parts of its smelting operations. The attack which escalated overnight and which is still ongoing has caused the company to resort to manual operations at its smelting facilities.

Thursday with 10 spots in the knock-out stages still up for grabs Only six teams — Unites States of America Paraguay Iran Brazil France and England — have booked a place in the Round-of-16 stage all six having a 100 percent win record They will be joined by the six second-placed finishers and also the four best third-placed finishers The four best third-place finishers clause means none of the 24 teams are definitively out of the reckoning; every team has a mathematical possibility of qualification Even India who find themselves bottom of Group A without a point can be in the Round-of-16 if they can record their first ever World Cup win and other results go their way As last-chance saloon beckons the teams scrapping to reach the Round-of-16 would not onlyhave to bring their A-game to the table but also keep the calculators handy To make things simpler for the average fan here’s an explainer of the overall qualification criteria and scenariosfor each group: The rankings of teams in each group are determined as: 1 Points obtained in all group matches 2 Goal difference in all group matches 3 Number of goals scored in all group matches If two or more teams are equal on the basis of the above criteria their rankings are then determined as follows: The four best teams among those ranked third will be determined by the following criteria: 1 Points obtained in all group matches 2 Goal difference in all group matches 3 Number of goals scored in all group matches 4 Fair play points 5 Drawing of lots by the FIFA Organising Committee Thus in accordance to the above criteria here’s a group-wise look at the qualification scenarios and what each team needs to do to ensure they are among the final 16: Group A Group A standings after two rounds Last round matches:United States vs Colombia; India vs Ghana United States:The US are assured of a place in the next round and their clash with Colombia will be all about ensuring they top the group A draw will secure top spot for John Hackworth’s side irrespective of the result in the other match A defeat against Colombia will leave the door open for Ghana to join the two teams on six points meaning it will all be down to goal difference But with the US also boasting a healthy goal difference GD of +4 only a heavy defeat against the South Americans or a big win for Ghana will prevent the Americans from topping Group A Colombia:The South Americans need a win to confirm their passage to the next round while a draw will ensure they will finish no lower than third place thus keeping them in contention for a place in the Round of 16 A drawwould most likely be enough to go through as one of the better third-place teams but it will mean Colombia will have to wait till the last game of the group stage to learn their fate A defeat against the group leaders would put their campaign in jeopardy Especially if Ghana also manages to defeat India A win or draw for Ghana would confirma third-place finish for the South Americans but a win for India would bring it all down to goal difference between the three teams Ghana:The Africans head into the final match against Indiaknowing a win would be enough to book a place in the last-16 either as group winners runner-up or as a higher-rankedthird-place team Their situation is similar to Colombia where a draw could eventually prove to be enough but a loss could increase chances of an early exit However their opponents are India considered the weakest team in the group so Ghana have a better chance of qualification than Colombia India:The hosts making their World Cup debut are yet to open their account After defeats in their two matches India have left themselves with all to do against Ghana The Indians face a must-win situation against the Africans and even victory may not be enough to send them through to the next stage Luis Norton de Matos’ side would need to beat Ghana by a margin of two goals to stay alive in the competition at least till the final whistle of the last game of group stages India could confirm qualification as runner-up if they beat Ghana by a three-goal margin and Colombia lose to the US Any other result apart from victory would endIndia’s campaign Group B Group B standings after two rounds Last round matches:New Zealand vs Mali; Paraguay vs Turkey Paraguay:The South Americans sealed qualification with an impressive comeback win over New Zealand in the previous match and will go into the final game looking toseal top spot in the group A win or draw would do the job for them but a defeat could see them slip lower down the table It’s unlikely that Paraguay will finish third in the group giventheir healthy goal difference Mali:The African champions will seal qualification with a win A draw would also do the job thanks to their superior goal difference A defeat could mean them having to qualify as one of the third-placed teams unless they lose heavily So as long as they avoid a heavy defeat against New Zealand Mali have a good chance ofqualification New Zealand:The Kiwisneed a victory to have any chance of qualifying for the knock-out stages A win would most likely be enough to send them through — either as group runner-up or as one of the better third-placed teams Any other result apart from a victory would leave the Kiwis with almost no chance of qualifying Turkey:With a goal difference of -3 Turkey can only qualify if they beat Paraguay in the final game on Thursday Like New Zealand a win may do the trick but any other result would send them packing Group C Group C standings after two rounds Last round matches:Costa Rica vs Iran; Guinea vs Germany Iran:The Asian champions floored Germany in their previousgame and are certain to qualify In alllikelihood owing to their superior goal difference they will do so as group winners As long as they avoid a heavy defeat toCosta Rica in the final game Iran will progress as Group C winners Germany:Germany will have to pick up the pieces from the mauling they received at the hands of Iran and get their act together A win against Guinea will send them through at least as runner-up while a draw could also be enough to at least qualify as one of the better third-placed teams A defeat will mean they are heavily dependenton the other results going their way Costa Rica:Theyneed a win to keep their hopes of qualification alive either as runner-up but more likely as one of the better third-placed teams Any other result would mean they will have a very minor chance of making the cut Guinea:Guinea’s fate is similar to Costa Rica’s They would need to beat the Germans to have any chance with any other result severely damaging their chances of qualification Group D Group D standings after two rounds Last round matches:Spain vs North Korea; Niger vs Brazil Brazil:The South American champions have qualified after recording two wins from their opening two games They now need a point to secure qualification as group winners Defeat though could leave the door open for Nigerand Spain to catch them in the table Defeat against Niger with a win for Spain against North Korea could mean Brazil will have to settle for second spot But the ‘Samba Boys’ are unlikely to slipbeyond the second spot even if they lose to Niger Spain:Thanks to their superior goal difference a draw against North Korea could be enough for the European champions to qualify at least as a third-placed team in case Niger upsets Brazil A defeat would leave them in a spot of bother but their goal difference could again work in their favour So Spain have to avoid a heavy defeat to ensure progression A win would secure second spot for them Niger:Niger would need to upset the mighty Brazil to harbour hopes of qualification They would need to get something out of their final match sincetheir inferior goal difference could prove to be their undoing in a scrap amongthird-placed teams A win would guarantee them a place in the next round North Korea:The Asians find themselves with a mountain to climb in the final game They would need to beat Spain to have any say in qualification matters They would need a big win over the European champions to have a realistic chance of making the cut for the last-16 Any other result apart from a win would spell the end of their campaign Group E Group E standings after tworounds Last round matches:France vs Honduras; Japan vs New Caledonia France: Les Bluesare through to the next round after maintaining a hundred percent record in thegroupso far Their goal difference of +7 means that even defeat against Honduras may keep them on top spot if Japan fail to do what other teams in the group have so efficiently done so far — smash a handful of goals past New Caledonia So France would be looking for at least a draw against Honduras to secure their passage to the next round as group winners Japan:A point would secure qualification for Japan thanks to their healthy goal difference but winning the game against New Caledonia shouldn’t be a major problem for Japan who could seal second spot with three points Even in the case of an unlikely defeat Japan would progress thanks to their superior goal difference either as runners-up if France beat Honduras or as a better third-place team if Honduras nick a point or beat France Honduras:They did well to repair the damage of a 6-1 defeat to Japan with a 5-0 win over New Caledonia As things stand Honduras is the best third-placed team in the tournament But they’re facing a tough last-round match against France and itwould be a big challenge to maintain this position Awin would help them qualify but even a draw could be enough considering their goal difference New Caledonia:Although the Oceanian side remains in contention on paper there is virtually no chance of them making the next round if their performances in the first two matchesare anything to go by Even a win over Japan in the final game may not be enoughthanks to

to Van Basten’s proposal to introduce a new orange-card sanction that sees players temporarily removed from the pitch for up to 10 minutes But the offside law should be sacrosanct as removing it would change the dynamic of the game according to Wenger “Offside is what makes the team be together” the Frenchman said “It’s a big quality of a team sport It’s an intelligent rule as well where you can use your intelligence It’s very important to keep that in the game “Overall football improves as well People say it’s too tight too compact but the evolution of the game has always been like that

goal and in front of the other goal with space on the pitch and no play Just to wait until the ball arrives in the box” In his days as a defender West Ham manager Slaven Bilic would not have liked the
