The FTSE 100’s moving back above the psychologically-critical 6,400-point marker in Wednesday business. It could pave the way for a healthy Santa Rally in the days and weeks ahead.I’m not pinning my hopes on the recent share rally continuing, though. News flow surrounding both Covid-19 and Brexit remain extremely fluid. Investor confidence could easily either fizz or flounder before the Christmas break.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Either scenario won’t impact my own investment strategy too much, though. I’ll continue investing in my Stocks and Shares ISA whatever happens.3 UK shares with BIG dividends on my ISA watchlistI’m confident that share prices will recover and recover strongly at some point. And I’ve already begun building my UK shares portfolio to capitalise on the eventual bull market. Here are three other top dividend-paying stocks I’m considering buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA today.#1: LXI REITReal estate investment trust (or REIT) LXI REIT is a great buy for an economic recovery, I feel. Its broad range of properties (like hotels, car showrooms, offices, gyms and car parks) spans a range of highly-cyclical sectors. But its exposure to more defensive segments like care homes and discount retail offers some security in the event of a lumpy rebound in the UK economy. This UK share also remains on the hunt for acquisitions to allow it to capitalise on the eventual recovery. LXI REIT carries a chunky forward dividend yield of 5% at current prices, making it a great buy for income investors like me.#2: Warehouse REITAnother big-yielding property stock that could surge in the new bull market is Warehouse REIT. This share is one of the few to have risen in 2020 during the coronavirus crisis. This is because its exposure to the e-commerce sector has paid dividends during that crisis. And the company — which provides warehouses to major blue-chip companies like Amazon and Hermes — will benefit from the improvement in consumer confidence as the economy improves. Today, Warehouse REIT carries a meaty forward dividend yield of 5.2%.#3: DevroSausage casings maker Devro is a brilliant buy for dividend investors, I feel, whatever their attitude to risk. Trading at the foodie has remained robust in 2020 despite the impact of Covid-19. And it can expect trading to pick up significantly during a post-coronavirus economic recovery. Demand for its products will rise in Europe as sales to the food service channel improve. The UK share can expect ripping emerging market sales to ratchet up a gear or two as well. Today Devro trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 9 times. It carries a monster 6% dividend yield as well. Consequently I think it’s a perfect pick for value investors. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Blues looking to topple Ulster

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Cardiff BluesUlster Referee: James Jones “Ulster are a better team and a better squad than they have been over the last two seasons, so we are going to have to be somewhere near our best if we are to secure the victory.”“Ulster pose a threat from a lot of areas but obviously Muller in the second row guarantees them lineout possession and is good in defence.”“Wannenburg, their Number 8, in the back of the scrum is a very strong ball carrier and can take them forward, while Pienaar has quality written all over him and good enough to play 9 or 10.”“They add to the players who have been there a while and have that never say die Ulster spirit.

They have won three of their four games against Welsh opponents this season.Speaking ahead of the match, David Young, said,“It’s a massive game for both teams, who have top four aspirations.”“Maybe it’s a tougher game for us because of the international withdrawals, as I don’t think they have as many, so it will test our squad a little bit more than them.”“There are two very important games for us during this Six Nations period before our internationals come back but we recorded a good win against Leinster last weekend.”“Our defence was excellent, the attack and approach was very good, but we just didn’t cross the whitewash enough.”“We have got to turn those try scoring opportunities into points and make sure we keep the scoreboard ticking over.”Ulster’s seven game losing run against Cardiff Blues ended at the Cardiff City Stadium in round eight, whilst the Ulstermen have not achieved a Magners League double over the Blues since season 2005/06.“I think we have been quite successful over in Ravenhill in recent years so know what it takes to win” added Young.“It’s always a place where I like going. There’s a great atmosphere, the crowd are very vocal, it’s very intense and it gets the hairs on the back of your neck on end. But there’s nothing better than coming away with a win, as very few teams do it.”last_img read more

The site is about 66 acres located on the north side of Lust Road just west of Binion Road and S.R. 429 and at the “gateway” to the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive (Loop Trail).As part of the process for attaining the site, the City has continually worked with SJRWMD and the OAS to help facilitate the eventual use and rehabilitation of the site and make it one of the premiere locations for birding enthusiasts. The City of Apopka and the OAS have completed an MOU to reflect the intent of the request to the SJRWMD for the site, and formally establish an MOU for the ownership, maintenance, and establishment of the “Gateway Birding Park” that will be managed by the OAS. The City envisions that this new Eco-Tourism Park will provide an accessible location for birding enthusiasts to enjoy, and provide a true gateway to the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive where additional birding opportunities exist.“The plan for this property is to make it a passive birding park,” explained Mayor Joe Kilsheimer. “It’s part of the overall eco-tourism plan. Because the (Lake Apopka) wildlife drive is only open three days a week plus federal holidays, the idea is to bring people to another natural place where birds congregate.”According to Kilsheimer, OAS has a plan to remove invasive plant species from the property, and replace them with native plants and trees that attract birds, with a long-term goal of establishing a visitor’s center to include classrooms.“Basically we intend to turn OAS loose on the Hickerson parcel and let them restore the natural balance,” Kilsheimer said.

The building site can be reached from 2 different directions: one from a 3 meter-wide lane that can only be used by motorbikes and another is from a 5 meter-wide lane. The site is landlocked by many closely placed buildings: the front of the 5m lane has the 4 storeys (15 meters high) townhouses and the back of this site adjacent with 7.5 meters high 2 storeys house. As a result, it forms the site with a distinctive zigzag shape, with “the Knots” effect in the middle.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe design solution is to divide the house into 3 blocks with different height levels to accommodate different building functions. These blocks are then connected by courtyard acting as transition space; bringing lights and natural ventilation throughout the site. The courtyard space is the design solution to “the Knots” part of the site and performed as flexible space to provide light, shade, air, privacy, and shelter.Save this picture!SketchThere are corridors stretches across 3 blocks at different levels which not only allow better circulation throughout building but also capturing lights reflected through changing shade of the materials during the different times of day.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe folded-roof system wrapped all space blocks together to define as one unity. The “angular geometry” roof system designed with different changing height levels corresponds to roof-scape and blends itself with the surrounding buildings. When it is seen from 5meter wide road, the unequal height of the house in comparison with other houses on the wider lane can be seen as the main viewpoint in the context.The louver system extends from roof to building facades in combination of folded roof pattern create an aesthetic connection of both external and interior spaces; also performs as comfortable shading system all year around.Save this picture!© Quang DamProject gallerySee allShow lessAluminum House / Fran Silvestre ArquitectosSelected ProjectsNew Australian Embassy Jakarta / Denton Corker MarshallSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Floating Offshore Wind global opportunity for Ireland

first_imgBilly Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash An unprecedented renewable energy opportunity for Ireland, the Shannon Estuary and the south and west coasts has been unveiled in a major study.Pat Keating, CEO of Shannon Foynes Port and Paul Doherty, MD Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions’ pictured at Foynes Port.The Offshore Wind Potential Study – commissioned by Shannon Foynes Port Company – by specialist geotechnical engineering consultancy Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions Ltd. (GDG) identifies the potential, through capitalising on our unique wind resource and deep-water port, to turn the State into an exporter of energy and generate unprecedented job creation in the process.The report estimates €12billion investment into the Estuary by 2050 under a medium growth scenario and without including export potential to other markets. As the floating wind sector is currently in its infancy, there is no well-established supply chain and this represents an opportunity for Ireland to be first movers in the floating wind sector, the report states.Pic Sean Curtin True Media.AN unprecedented renewable energy opportunity for Ireland, the Shannon Estuary and the south and west coasts has been unveiled in a major study.The Offshore Wind Potential Study – commissioned by Shannon Foynes Port Company – by specialist geotechnical engineering consultancy Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions Ltd. (GDG) identifies the potential, through capitalising on our unique wind resource and deep-water port, to turn the State into an exporter of energy and generate unprecedented job creation in the process.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up As the floating wind sector is currently in its infancy, there is no well-established supply chain and this represents an opportunity for Ireland to be first movers in the floating wind sector, the report states.The report estimates €12billion investment into the Estuary by 2050 under a medium growth scenario and without including export potential to other markets.The opportunity  is a confluence of the emergence of floating offshore wind technology as the biggest growth area for renewables globally, the Irish west coast having among the best wind resources in the world and the unrivalled deep waters of the Shannon Estuary – a key asset and component for the manufacturing and industrial ecosystem necessary to support the global scale floating offshore wind farmsThe report estimates that the available wind resource can generate up to 70GW of floating offshore wind energy and identifies not alone the export opportunity from excess electricity generated but also for green hydrogen produced from the offshore wind farm sites.“With investment into the Shannon Estuary, there exists huge potential to develop world-class and innovative facilities aimed at growing the floating offshore renewable energy (ORE) sector allied to the manufacturing potential in the Shannon Estuary. Therein exists the potential of dramatically reducing the Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE),” the report states.It finds that Shannon Foynes is best placed to service the future offshore floating wind market. This is due to the proximity to resource and market; availability of the deepest watercourse in Ireland and one of the deepest and most sheltered estuaries in the world; extensive future landbank availability; and the existence of Shannon Foynes Port Company as a statutory authority with National Tier 1 port status and European Commission, Trans European Transport Network (TEN-T) core corridor status on North/South and East/West corridors and existing 1.6 GW connectivity to our own national grid.“Offshore Floating Wind is rapidly expanding and therefore now is the time to capture the potential from this early-stage sector. Given the timelines to develop the required infrastructure, now is the time to commit the investment and ensure Ireland Inc. capitalises on the global opportunity as first movers in this exciting space. Shannon Foynes Port is the vehicle to maximise the benefits to Ireland Inc. from the floating wind market.”Closer to home, the report identifies the potential to create between 10,000 – 20,000 jobs in manufacturing and a further 10,000 industry jobs arising from four distinct supply chain opportunities – Manufacturing, Staging and Installation, Operations and Maintenance by 2050.Manufacturing could also extend to the preparation and export of component parts further afield to the East coast of USA and into European developments, both onshore and offshore.The study, which was carried out this year, found that the Shannon Estuary is best placed to service the future offshore floating wind market, both the domestic market and as a global exporter of energy and technology.It is, the report states, no surprise that the first Offshore Wind Farm sites in Ireland were all situated on the east coast, as they have fixed foundations. However, as the offshore floating wind technology becomes more efficient and the associated supply chain develops, the west coast of Ireland will become much more favourable.“The total potential capacity on the West coast dwarfs the East coast opportunity,” it adds.However, while floating wind presents an opportunity for Ireland to become a world leader, investment is needed in infrastructure. A large constraint will be the ability of Ireland to connect this resource to the grid and export the excess to other markets, it acknowledges.It also acknowledges the uniqueness of the Shannon Estuary and its potential for Green Hydrogen production, International ship refuelling and export potential of hydrogen and green ammonia.“To facilitate taking a lead in the global market, Ireland needs to apply significant investment in research & development to solve this market barrier along with looking to reduce the cost of floating wind technology,” it states.To this end, the planned International centre of Excellence for Floating offshore wind and its connectivity to our university’s offers a very rare opportunity also.Among the individual challenges that need to be overcome are lack of an overarching Government policy identifying the export opportunity, weaknesses in the planning and consenting process, the construction of new port infrastructure, lack of an integrated approach and other competing countries  are getting a head start, such as Scotland, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, France and Portugal.Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions’ report pinpoints huge potential for manufacturing facilities to be established in Shannon Estuary. It proposes Foynes Port as a Supply Chain Enterprise Park and the other local authority designated strategic development locations consisting of a total of 1200 hectares on the Shannon Estuary for device and component manufacture and assembly. It states that opportunities also exist for the production of green hydrogen using electricity produced from the new Atlantic offshore wind farms.Welcoming the report, Pat Keating, CEO of Shannon Foynes Port said:  “This report quantifies for the first time the unique floating offshore wind opportunity that exists for Ireland and not just for this region.“The mix of our world-class wind resources, the natural infrastructure here for a global manufacturing and industry base and climate change adds up to what is an unprecedented opportunity that we must capitalise on.“There is already significant interest in this from global energy players and we would anticipate generating a gigawatt of energy by the turn of the next decade. This would very much be a phased programme rivalling anything on an international scale but will transition Ireland to a global renewable energy leader.“It will deliver our own energy requirements through renewable resources, replacing fossil fuels in the long term, but will also see Ireland become becoming a significant exporter of energy into the bargain.” he said.Said Chairman of Shannon Foynes Port David McGarry: “A Danish study has recently calculated that every gigawatt of offshore renewable energy produced will support up to 14,600 jobs in the Danish economy.“The calculations are easy to do from there and even if we target only half of the estimated 70GW potential off the West Coast, there’s a huge economic and jobs bounce from this as well.“This can be transformational for the Irish economy and our environment. Floating technologies are relatively new in the offshore renewables sector and, coupled with the Atlantic’s mean wind speeds of 14m/s, we have global first mover advantage with this.” he added.Said Minister Patrick O’Donovan:  “This report underlines the unprecedented opportunity that awaits us now that floating offshore wind technology is ready.  It’s only a matter of time before we see its commercial deployment here off the Shannon Estuary given the unrivalled mix here.“It is perhaps our greatest ever opportunity and will be transformational with regard to the economic balance on the island of Ireland, spreading huge investment to the western half of the island and delivering on the goals of Project Ireland 2040.” he explained.Said Minister Niall Collins: “There’s been a general awareness for some time of potential from floating offshore wind generation for the West coast but this study sets out the scale of the opportunity and it’s unprecedented.“It’s incumbent now on all stakeholders to work together to make sure we do what’s necessary to build out this enormous opportunity for Limerick, the region and, indeed, the nation.  The economic, jobs and environmental gains are far too great for this not to be realised.”Said Deputy Brian Leddin: “The Shannon Estuary and West of Ireland, as this report shows, has a solution that goes way beyond meeting climate change targets.  Our programme for government has already paved the way for this as it has a clear and unambiguous commitment to harnessing the potential of the Shannon Estuary for economic development through renewable energy resources.“That opportunity has now arrived. We must now leave no stone unturned in realising this. This can catapult Ireland into the top tier of renewable energy generation and export nations.” TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Post LimerickNewsFloating Offshore Wind global opportunity for IrelandBy Meghann Scully – December 8, 2020 328 Previous articleWeekly Racing News | Hayes, Harnett and O’Connor headlineNext articleLiam Cunningham calls on the Irish public to support the world’s poorest communities this Christmas Meghann Scully RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter WhatsApp Advertisement Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener center_img Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Print Facebook Roisin Upton excited by “hockey talent coming through” in Limerick Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Linkedin Emaillast_img read more

Division bench of Justice RK Deshpande and Justice Amit Borkar of the Nagpur bench were hearing a PIL filed by aggrieved residents of the Wathoda area who challenged the order passed by the Deputy Municipal Commissioner, Nagpur, establishing the Bakra Mandi at Wathoda on May 4, 2020 allowing establishment of Bakra Mandi at Wathoda. In the previous hearing, on May 26, APMC supported the cause of the petitioner residents and was anxious to get the order passed by the Deputy Municipal Commissioner establishing the Bakra Mandi at Wathoda, set aside. Court noted- “In the absence of any claim for time to establish Bakra Mandi in Kalamna Market Yard, we carried an impression that all the infrastructural facilities for such a market are ready and the market can be made functional immediately.” Thus, the PIL was disposed of by the Court permitting the APMC to establish Bakra Mandi and upon such creation of Bakra Mandi, order dated May 4 passed by the Deputy Municipal Commissioner shall stand recalled. However, in yesterday’s hearing, a complaint was made before the Court that neither the APMC has created the Bakra Mandi nor the NMC has shifted Bakra Mandi from Wathoda to Kalamna. APMC’s counsel submitted that for creation of all the infrastructural facilities in the area of the at least four weeks time is required. Calling it an excuse, Court said- “We are unable to understand such a stand in the light of what transpired before us on 26.05.2020 and we were made to carry an impression that the APMC is prepared to establish the Bakra Mandi immediately or at least within a period of eight days and thus we find it to be total mis-representation on the part of the APMC. We therefore, direct the APMC to deposit costs of Rs. 25,000 within a period of one week from today for misrepresenting the Court.”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.

Dig yields historical treasures for Troy students

first_img Dig yields historical treasures for Troy students Print Article The Troy University Archaeological Research Center’s summer field school is excavating a site along the Pea River near the Hobdy’s bridge. The site has been determined to be between 3,500 and 4,00 years old and contains a ‘structure’ that is thought to have been a community building of some sort. Jason Mann, Director of TUARC, said the finding of the structure was a total surprise.Everything was quiet at the dig site within a stone’s throw of the Pea River near Hobdy’s Bridge. Only the sounds of sliding of shovels and dirt being tossed broke the stillness of the hot July morning.The students at the dig site were participating the Troy University Archaeological Research Center’s summer field school and were intently focused on their specific roles until … “Jason, I’ve got something big.”Hunter Holland was skimming the dirt in search of artifacts. Holland found a ‘hammer stone’.All movement stopped, and all eyes turned to where Hunter Holland was carefully moving dirt with the sharp shovel blade. By Jaine Treadwell Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “Or a vacation condo,” the students added laughing.Mann said the big, square structure was some type of domestic building.“What we have found are cooking vessels, tools for daily use and for processing wild animals,” he said. “The structure was used by Indians who would stay around for a while. Maybe, by those who came back to the area on an annual basis to hunt deer and turkeys or by those who followed live plants.”Mann speculated that those who made use of the structure were members of the Poverty Point Culture of Louisiana that formed a large trading network throughout the area and into North Georgia, Tennessee and Arkansas.The identity of those who inhabited the area around the dig site and the specific use of the structure are left to speculation. However, Mann said the discovery of the structure will be documented and the artifacts found there will be photographed, documented and analyzed in the lab and will lend greater knowledge of the Indians and their way of life.At the dig sites, Mann said the students have unearthed a large number of artifacts and sifted through mounds of sand to find answers to the Pea River people of the past.“As you would expect, we have found many arrowheads and pieces of pottery,” Mann said. “It is would be very rare to find a whole piece of pottery. About 90 percent of the stuff we find was trash, things that nobody wanted.”Findings at the site include fire pits with tiny pieces of charcoal that can be radiocarbon dated to pinpoint the date of the campsite. The campfire pits also revealed the eating habits of those at the site.Deer and turkey, fish and even a beaver were the most popular menu items of the Indians who inhabited the area hundreds and thousands of years ago.“We found beaver teeth along with pieces of charcoal and that lets us know they ate beavers,” Mann said.Impressions left by decaying tree roots, animal burrows and the coloring of the earth all play a role in the telling of the story of Indians who were keepers of the land that is now Pike County.The sun was hot; the air was humid and the bees were buzzing at the dig site but the eight archeology students weren’t bothered by the discomforts of the day.Hannah Mills explained why.She is fourth-year senior in the program and has participated on a dig with the Troy University on the other side of the world.She participated in a six-weeks dig in Israel that was much different from the dig along Pea River.“The dig was at the site of a Persian City that dated 500 BC,” Mills said. “It was where a house and burned. The walls were stone and we had to dig with pick axes. We found vessels, glass objects and beads, even a body.”But no matter where she is “digging up history,” Mills said archeology is fascinating.“It’s so cool to touch something that nobody has touched in thousands of years and to see something that no one else has seen,” she said.On a day when the temperature hit the high 90s and the sun was beating down, the Troy University Archaeological Research Center’s summer field school was the “coolest” place to be. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder Email the author But, surprisingly, at the third dig site the students unearthed something really big – a structure that dates back 3,500 to 4,000 years.“It was a total surprise,” Mann said. “We have unearthed many interesting items that tell us a lot about the Indians in this area and how they lived. But to find a structure that dates back nearly 4,000 years – that’s big.”Of course, the wood structure has been gone for thousands of years. But, through the meticulous excavation of the site, the students have been able to define the walls and floor of the structure, which Mann said was some kind of permanent structure for community use.Dakota Tillis was a dirt sifter.“Maybe like a hunting club,” he said.

‘Premeditated, cold and cruel murder’: Prosecutors’ final arguments in Patrick Frazee trial

first_imgABC News(DENVER, Colorado) — As the trial of a Colorado man accused of killing his fiancee came to a close, prosecutors Monday described the case as a “deliberate, premeditated, cold and cruel murder.”Patrick Frazee is accused of attacking his fiancee Kelsey Berreth with a baseball bat at her Woodland Park, Colorado, home on Nov. 22, 2018 — which was Thanksgiving — while the couple’s 1-year-old daughter, Kaylee, sat in a playpen in a back room.Prosecutors allege Frazee then put Berreth’s body in a black plastic tote and burned it on his property.His defense attorneys, who did not call any witnesses, stress that a body and a murder weapon have never been recovered.‘Only one person knows why’In closing arguments on Monday, prosecutors said Frazee knew Berreth, 29, was dead because he never attempted to contact her after Nov. 25, 2018.Prosecutor Beth Reid also reminded the jury that Frazee was captured on a neighbor’s surveillance camera outside Berreth’s condo at the same time he claimed he was 40 miles away tending to his cattle.Reid showed the jury security camera photos that captured Frazee’s red pickup truck driving in Woodland Park on Thanksgiving with a large black tote box in the back.“Her beaten and battered body is in that box, which he keeps on the back of the truck while he eats Thanksgiving dinner,” said Reid.Reid told jurors that they did not need to agree on Frazee’s alleged motive in order to convict him of murder.“The reality is,” Reid told the jurors, “only one person knows why.”Ex-girlfriend takes the standFrazee’s ex-girlfriend Krystal Lee was a star witness for the prosecution, and testified that Frazee called her to come to Berreth’s house to clean up the bloody aftermath.Lee told jurors that Frazee admitted to tying a blindfold around Berreth’s head and asked her to guess the scent of candles before beating her to death with a baseball bat.“I saw blood all over the floor and blood all over the wall,” she testified. “There was blood on the front of the stove and the dishwasher, and on the floor there were bloody footprints.”Lee, who has admitted to disposing of Berreth’s phone, has pleaded guilty to tampering with physical evidence. Records showed Berreth’s phone traveled with Lee’s phone to Idaho where Lee says she destroyed it. She is awaiting sentencing once Frazee’s case concludes.Notes to an inmateLast Friday, an inmate testified that Frazee recently asked him to use his connections to a prison gang to kill several witnesses in the case, including Lee.The inmate says he and Frazee were in jail together from Sept. 26 to Oct. 12, 2019.“He would pass me notes if his information was too sensitive,” the inmate said, claiming Frazee told him he’d take care of him financially when he got out.In court, a state investigator read from a number of those notes, which were written on paper towels and napkins. The notes, the investigator testified, contained hit lists, along with detailed instructions on where to find the witnesses. The list included Lee, her parents and her ex-husband.“They all need to disappear, unseen until 11/22 after the trial,” said a note, which the investigator testified appeared to be in Frazee’s handwriting. “I’d really like to see Krystal with a bullet in her head.”‘Patrick Frazee is not guilty’Defense attorney Adam Steigerwald questioned the credibility of Lee and the evidence, saying in his closing argument Monday, “This case has been built on a foundation it cannot support. Patrick Frazee is not guilty.”Steigerwald argued that the case against Frazee is circumstantial and based on a story “made up” by Lee, adding she didn’t cooperate with investigators until the district attorney agreed to a deal to not prosecute her for more serious crimes.“There is not one word from Krystal Lee until she has a signature on the dotted line,” Steigerwald said. “There is nothing she talked about that is believable.”Steigerwald also pointed out that neither Frazee nor Lee’s DNA were detected anywhere in Berreth’s condo, despite the prosecution theory that her condo was where Frazee killed Berreth and where Lee cleaned up the aftermath.Steigerwald also attacked evidence provided by a neighbor’s security camera, saying it did not show Frazee going onto Berreth’s home — or coming out — carrying a baseball bat or a tote. In addition, Steigerwald said none of Berreth’s neighbors heard or saw anything suspicious on Thanksgiving, which Steigerwald called an unlikely day to plan a murder.“Is there a day of the year when people are less likely to be alone? To be missed? To speak to your family than Thanksgiving Day?” Steigerwald asked the jury.Frazee was arrested in December 2018 on charges including first-degree murder. Judge Scott Sells told the jury they can also consider finding Frazee guilty of second-degree murder or manslaughter.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

EAT gets shirty with Jobcentre

first_img Comments are closed. EAT gets shirty with JobcentreOn 1 Feb 2004 in Personnel Today A legal ruling that decided a man working for Jobcentre Plus had beentreated less favourably because he was required to wear a collar and tie towork has been overturned after an appeal. An Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has ruled that the case must be heardagain before another tribunal in Manchester, although the case could eventuallyend up at the Court of Appeal. The original verdict last year backed Matthew Thompson’s claim that he wasbeing unfairly treated on the grounds of his sex because higher standards ofdress were expected of male staff. This cleared the way for a further 6,950 other male job centre staff tolodge similar complaints. However, the appeal has now put the outcome of the case – Work and Pensionsv Thompson, EAT/0254/03 – back in the balance by deciding the first tribunaldid not ask the right question. Michael Ball, employment partner at law firm Halliwell Landau, said adefinitive outcome could be some way off. “The EAT said that the questionthe employment tribunal should have asked was whether, applying contemporarystandards of conventional dresswear, the level of smartness required by staffcould only be achieved by men if they wore a collar and tie.” The next hearing of the case, which will be heard within the next sixmonths, must consider if men can achieve an appropriate level of smartnesswithout wearing a collar and tie. “The issue is not resolved by asking whether the requirement for acollar an tie meant a higher level of smartness was required of men than women.It’s whether an equivalent level of smartness could only be achieved in thecase of men by making them wear a collar and tie,” Ball explained. “The tribunal had not made any findings that specifically determinedthe correct question. It could go on for a while yet.” Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Oxford Council husts hotly contested

first_imgCandidates for wards representing Oxford University students have clashed over key issues ahead of city council elections on May 3.The hustings at Oriel College on Wednesday evening saw prospective councillors for the Carfax, Holywell and North Wards pitch themselves to an audience of students and local residents, facing a multitude of questions on topics ranging from education to wheelchair accessibility in the city centre.The twelve candidates include three current Oxford finalists, Alex Harvey, Sam Hollick, and Robin McGhee. There were also two University members of staff: Anne-Marie Canning and John Howson.Classic battlegrounds of housing and bicycle theft were hotly debated. Accusations were levelled at Labour and the Greens by the Liberal Democrats, with their candidate for Holywell, Robin McGhee, bemoaning a stifling of housing availability. He said that the two parties “just don’t get the point” about the use of caps.However, Adam Ramsay, Green candidate for Carfax, later released a statement denying that he supported housing quotas.The Conservatives currently have no councillors in Oxford and are expected to suffer from the factor of incumbency on a national level.Tim Patmore, Conservative candidate for Carfax, comparing Oxford to other local authorities with “less council tax and regulations”, said that he “would like to transform Oxford into a town more like Banbury”.His fellow party candidate for Holywell, Robert Sargent, said, “Bringing in a couple of Tory councillors will bring some sanity to the city.”The Green Party is looking to boost their presence in Oxford, one of places in the country where they are best represented. Amongst other proposals they pledged “sensible measures” to bring back the recently scrapped Educational Maintenance Allowance (EMA).When asked to explain how he would fund the EMA, Ramsay vowed to tax four- and five-star hotels, bluntly declaring, “We want to take it off rich people.” He believes that government policy has led to pupils being unable to finish school, and remarked, “In the city famous for education, I think it’s a disgrace.’ Robin McGhee, however, pointed out, “City councils don’t actually have the powers to do that.”Ramsay’s Labour rival Anne-Marie Canning, defending the council’s record, maintained that “the Labour vote’s the only vote for a student”.National politics inevitably also framed the debate. Adam Ramsay claimed, “We’re seeing inequality widen across the country at the fastest rate we’ve seen since Victorian Britain.”Labour Party candidate for Holywell, Alex Harvey, took a swipe at the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government: “They can’t play politics with people’s lives in the name of deficit reduction.”“This is a government that is both economically incompetent and morally incompetent.”Robin McGhee was defiant in the face of perceived popular disaffection with the Lib Dems. “I haven’t been amazingly pleased with everything we’ve done in government, but I’ve been proud by the way we’ve prevented the Tories from doing some very bad things indeed.”Previously a minority administration, Oxford City Council became a majority Labour council after the last local elections in 2010. Labour currently hold 26 out of 48 seats, whilst the Lib Dems hold 16 seats and the Greens hold 5. Polling will take place between 7am – 10pm next Thursday. The full list of candidates is as follows:Carfax: Anne-Marie Canning, LAB; Tim Patmore, CON; Adam Ramsay, GRN; Duncan Stott, LD. Colleges: Balliol, Blackfriars, Brasenose, Exeter, Jesus, Keble, Lincoln, Pembroke, Regent’s Park, St John’s, St Peter’s, Nuffield, St Benet’s, St Cross, TrinityHolywell: Alex Harvey, LAB; Sam Hollick, GRN; Robin McGhee, LD; Robert Sargent, CON.

Hundreds Race in Ocean City For Cure to Crohn’s Disease

first_imgEmily Kropp, left, who vacations in Ocean City, and her best friend, Megan Fant, participate in the Guts and Glory 5K Run-Walk in Kropp’s honor. She suffers from Crohn’s disease and has raised more than $32,000 for a cure. By Maddy VitaleEmily Kropp was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory bowel disease, when she was just a child. More than 30 years later, she still fights the ailment, which is under control at the moment.Instead of concentrating on her own struggles, Kropp, of Philadelphia, helps others by raising funds for research in hopes of finding a cure.Over the last nine years she and her team, “Team Tummy,” have raised $32,000 through the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, and that number keeps growing.On Sunday morning, Kropp, the 2018 “Honored Hero” for the foundation, gave opening remarks at the 24th annual Guts and Glory 5K Run-Walk in Ocean City benefiting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.Participants start the run/walk geared up in their team shirts.“This is a very special day for me,” Kropp, 40, who summers in Ocean City, shouted into the microphone.  “I look forward to this day. It shows how a small community comes together.” The event serves as a fundraiser for the charity and is also a meeting place for people to connect with others suffering from irritable bowel disorders, according to the CACF.Before the start of the race, Carly Presnell, development director for the foundation, addressed the crowd.“You are our heroes. You are the reason we gathered here today. You all empower, inspire, connect us to our mission to raise funds for a cure,” Presnell said to applause “We admire your strength and perseverance.”Carly Presnell, development director for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, gives opening remarks before the race.Hundreds of runners and walkers lined up at the intersection of Haven Avenue and 18th Street for the start the race wearing team shirts that read: “Jogging Josh,” “Team Tummy” and “Got Guts.”Kropp and her best friend, Megan Fant, walked side by side.Kropp was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at the age of eight and has had her battles with the uncomfortable, sometimes debilitating disease.Medicine, she said, keeps it under control. Her disease is considered stable, but she suffers from flareups.“I feel very lucky I have had such wonderful healthcare,” Kropp said.Runners are triumphant as they cross the finish line.Kropp may have grown weary from going to doctors throughout her life, but it is also how she found her calling, she said.She is a nurse in the oncology department at the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOPS).“I was exposed to a lot of nurses as a kid, and it sounds cliché, but it is the silver lining in all of this,” Kropp said. “I found my passion.”Kropp’s friend Fant said one of the things that makes Kropp so special is that through all of the health struggles, she never complains. “She is such an inspiration,” Fant said, while walking with Kropp for “Team Tummy.”Rhondell Domilici, director of advancement and volunteer engagement for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, said there are between 1.6 million and 3.1 million patients suffering from irritable bowel disease nationwide.“A lot of people suffer in silence,” Domilici said. She was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when she was 12. Like Kropp, Domilici credited advancements in medicine to help her manage the disease. But there is a lot more that could be learned about the disease, which would help to hopefully find a cure, she added. Teams race for their family members who suffer from Crohn’s disease.“There is a plethora of medications and new options,” Domilici said. “Other than finding a cure, we are hoping to be able to personalize the treatment approaches with a couple of lab tests rather than patients trying different drugs to see if they work.”Domilici said medical experts have found a correlation between Crohn’s disease and genetics. Stress, diet and viruses are also the culprits in the ailment that is most prevalent in the United States, Canada and Europe.Paul Gellar, director of the Philadelphia/Delaware Valley Chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, said roughly 90,000 people suffer from the disease throughout the region.“The growth is incredible,” Gellar noted of the disease diagnosis being on the rise in the area. Some people didn’t participate in the event but were there to support their loved ones who did.Bob McArthur runs for two family members with the disease.Allison Spiro, of Red Bank, and Emma Johnson, of Hopewell Township in Mercer County, watched as their friend ran in support of a friend’s daughter who has Crohn’s disease.“We are here to show our support,” Spiro said. “Everyone knows someone with the disease.”For more information or to donate visit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation at read more

Steve Dawson resigns from Real Good Food board

first_imgSteve Dawson – who helped turn around the Bahlsen US business – is to leave his non-executive position on the board of Renshaw owner Real Good Food (RGF).Dawson joined the board as an independent non-executive director just under a year ago, when RGF described him as an “experienced specialist in food and beverage brands in the UK and in North America”. He was previously interim CEO of Bahlsen North America, where he stabilised the business and cut operating losses by two-thirds.RGF appointed Dawson as it looked to turn the business around following a troubled period that included the exit of founder and executive chairman Pieter Totté, a string of profit warnings and concerns over its corporate governance.Dawson became CEO of the US division of desserts supplier Pots & Co in July, and told RGF that this commitment meant he would have to quit his non-exec role. He will serve on the board until 31 October.“The board would like to thank Steve for his contribution as a non-executive director over the past 12 months and wish him well with his future endeavours,” stated RGF, adding that the process of finding a replacement was under way.RGF recently announced its full-year results and revealed plans for the development of its cake decorations division.last_img read more

Jamiroquai Announces First U.S. Show In 13 Years

War-torn Yemen reports coronavirus cases in three more provinces

The Houthis ousted the government from power in the capital, Sanaa, in late 2014.The World Health Organization says it fears COVID-19 could rip through Yemen as the population has some of the lowest levels of immunity to disease compared with other countries. Minimal testing capacity has added to concerns.The five-year war has shattered Yemen’s health system and left its population weakened by hunger and disease. Around 80% of the population, or 24 million people, rely on humanitarian aid and 10 million are at risk of starvation.The Aden government has now reported infections in seven provinces under its control, stretching from the Red Sea in the west to the Omani border in the country’s east.

Woodward expects few new arrivals

first_img “There is incredible depth. We could put two first teams out with 11 internationals in each. It has been a phenomenal season. We are a long way ahead in the Premier League and whilst I wouldn’t describe the way we got knocked out of the Champions League as luck things could have gone differently in that game. “We have a young squad and each of those are a year older. We are very comfortable with the make up of team and squad.” Nevertheless, Ferguson will continue to be linked with a series of star players, most recently Robert Lewandowski and Ramadel Falcao, whilst newly crowned FWA Player of the Year Gareth Bale is another United admire. The Red Devils can certainly feel bullish about attracting the top talent when it is considered their year-on-year turnover for the first nine months has risen 13.1 per cent to £278.1million. Of that, commercial income is now £114.5million, an increase of 27.9 per cent. It underlines just how strong United have become in that area of their business, and it doesn’t include the new £120million, eight-year deal with AON, which includes naming rights to their Carrington training complex and sponsorship of their training kit and overseas tours. Broadcast and matchday sectors show a 21.7 per cent and 34 per cent increase on the corresponding three months, whilst gross debt stands at £367.6million, still a vast sum, a decrease of 15.9 per cent since June 30 last year. However, total operating expenses for the third quarter increased 18.6 per cent year-on-year to £79million. That has been put down partly to the arrival of new signings, including Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa, new contracts for the likes of Danny Welbeck and the growing commercial arm which means the club now have in excess of 800 staff. Press Association Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is not anticipating “a major retooling” of Sir Alex Ferguson’s squad this summer.center_img Woodward was speaking to outline United’s third quarter results, which once again show an impressive rise in their commercial income. And with Ferguson admitting he was giving his squad rebuilding idea some thought, it has been anticipated further big name signings would be made. However, after winning the Premier League title this term with four games to spare, Woodward is not sure that is strictly necessary. “I wouldn’t expect there to be a major retooling of the squad,” said Woodward. last_img read more

British and Irish success in Minsk

first_img Leeds light-flyweight Jack Bateson continued to impress in his first major international tournament with a unanimous points victory over Romania’s Ovidiu Berceanu. And Scotland’s Charlie Flynn is also through to his first major quarter-final after an equally emphatic victory over Serban Miroslav of the Czech Republic. Bateson and Flynn join fellow Britons Andrew Selby, Sam Maxwell and Joe Joyce, who negotiated their respective paths to the last eight on Monday. Five British and five Irish boxers will fight for guaranteed medals on Wednesday after another successful day at the European Amateur Championships in Minsk. Belfast’s double Olympic bronze medallist Paddy Barnes marched into the last eight of the light-flyweight division with a unanimous win over gutsy Welshman Ashley Williams. Olympic silver medallist and bantamweight top seed John Joe Nevin is also through after impressing in a 3-0 win over Selcuk Exer of Turkey. On a good day for Ireland, middleweight Jason Quigley and heavyweight Tommy McCarthy also moved through with points wins over Austria’s Arbi Chakaev and Finland’s Tomi Honka respectively. They join Ireland team-mate and Olympic bronze medallist Michael Conlan, who booked his place in the bantamweight quarter-finals on Monday. There was disappointment for Sunderland heavyweight Warren Baister, who was outpointed by Russia’s Aleksei Egorov, Birmingham bantamweight Gamal Yafai, who lost a split decision to Armenian Aram Avagyan, and middleweight Antony Fowler who lost to fourth-seeded German Stefan Haertel. Scotland pair Aston Brown and Joe Ham also bowed out with defeats to Romania’s Bogdan Juratoni and Russia’s Vladimir Nikitin respectively. The only Irishman to exit on Tuesday was London Olympian Adam Nolan, who fell to a unanimous points loss in his welterweight clash with Ukrainian Boghdan Shelestyuk. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Size vs. speed debate no longer necessary

first_imgThe old size-versus-speed debate is one of the most overused and illogical ways to analyze or preview a college football game.Unfortunately, Badger fans heard all about it leading up to the Champs Sports Bowl against “speedy” Miami.Many believed “The U” would be too fast for the Badgers. Experts feared those watching would inevitably be blinded by the overwhelming quickness of the ‘Canes. The powerful UW rushing attack was supposed to pale in comparison to the Hurricanes’ athletic front seven.So how did the Badgers manage to upend Miami down in Orlando? How did they hold that explosive Miami attack to just 249 yards of total offense?To sit here and say that it was UW’s size that defeated Miami’s speed is quite honestly false. Those two teams represent a lot more than those two words.Sure, Wisconsin’s powerful rushing attack and enormous offensive line had something to do with the signature victory, but UW outplayed the Hurricanes in every aspect of the game. They were not just the more physically imposing team, they were simply the better team. The Badgers are more than just powerful — they are incredibly balanced and, yeah, they too have some fast players on the roster.True to form, UW ran it down Miami’s throats and it was an impressive display, but that’s not all it did. The Badgers won that game with a relentless pass rush, sure tackling and the ability to consistently convert on third down through the air.You know what’s funny about all those things? The vast majority of teams in college football, whether labeled speedy or not, are well aware they lead to wins.And that’s what makes this whole speed and size debate so aggravating: it just doesn’t exist. Everyone needs speed and everyone needs physicality — this is football we’re talking about after all.Twenty years ago there may have been a gap in speed and athleticism across college football. I wouldn’t disagree that the southern teams had more speed, but in today’s game, every program gets its hands on quick players. Recruiting now goes coast-to-coast as midwestern programs continue to bring in players from Florida and California.As far as speed is concerned, the playing field is now pretty much even.And while everyone was busy talking about the difference in styles between the two programs, no one acknowledged that Miami had almost the exact same offensive game plan as the Badgers. Most overlook this, but the Hurricanes’ offense is only successful when they get their running game going. They had three backs combine to total over two thousand yards on the year — that’s physical football. They have a big offensive line and physical runners, but they are labeled as the speedy finesse team. The Miami players shivering in 50-degree weather didn’t promote a very rugged image, but they at least wanted to be physical up front.There are very few teams in football that can run their offenses effectively without moving the ball on the ground or winning the battles on line of scrimmage. UW won those battles and got pressure on Jacory Harris, while Scott Tolzien was comfortable in the pocket. That’s why we saw the Badgers dominate in the passing game, because I don’t care how fast your receivers are, without time to throw, no one looks open.And as the Hurricanes’ offense struggled, Tolzien became the first Wisconsin quarterback to reach 200 completions in a season, but you won’t hear anyone acknowledge the strides UW has made in the passing game.Yet, the 2009 Champs Sports Bowl isn’t the only example of a game that illuminates the idiocy of the speed and size debate, especially in the Big Ten.Ohio State and Terrelle Pryor ran wild in the Rose Bowl. The Buckeyes dominated the line of scrimmage and wore down an Oregon offense that was said to be the most explosive in the country. And thanks to Iowa and Penn State, the Big Ten proved it has some capable athletes to go along with oversized linemen (four Big Ten teams finished in the top 16).Here’s the thing — in college football today we have so many types of offenses, so many formations that we lose sight of the basics. Some teams spread it out, some opt to play between the tackles and others pull out some crazy triple option attack. But in the end each team’s core objective remains the same: you must control the line of scrimmage.Down in those trenches you need size, you need to be physical. Big Ten teams, SEC teams, ACC teams, all of them. And as unbelievable as it sounds, the good teams have both size and speed.Just check out Miami head coach Randy Shannon’s comments to prior to the bowl game.“It’s not going to be a situation where we’re going to be faster than those guys or they’re going to be faster than us,” he said. “We have a big offensive line; they have a big offensive line. They have big guys on defense; we have big guys on defense. It’s going to work itself out.“It’s just a myth that if you’re down south you run faster.”Coach Shannon was proved right as UW dispelled the ridiculous myth once again. I guess if the south wants to regain the speed advantage they just need to get faster, because the rest of the country has certainly caught up.Max is a junior majoring in journalism.

Sulunteh No. 2 on ANC Ticket

first_imgCummings (right) and Sulunteh. The Alternative National Congress (ANC) has named Liberia’s former Ambassador to the United States, Canada and Mexico, Jeremiah C. Sulunteh as running mate to the party’s standard bearer, Alexander B. Cummings (nicknamed ABC), barely two months after Sulunteh resigned from the governing Unity Party (UP).Cummings announced Sulunteh as his running mate, shortly after he was formally endorsed as standard bearer by members of the party’s executive committee.The ceremony, which was witnessed by party delegates from Liberia’s 15 counties, was held last Saturday at the Kakata City Hall in Margibi County.Since he crossed over to the ANC last month, Sulunteh has been accompanying Mr. Cummings on his trips across Liberia – the most recent one being to Gbarpolu and Bomi counties where the ANC held primaries that endorsed Cummings as standard bearer.Shortly after the Cummings-Sulunteh ticket was announced, executive committee members of the party described Mr. Cummings’ election as historic, “because of the political trend the ANC has illustrated. It is the first of its kind in the country’s political history for the political leader of a party to be elected standard bearer through a county-by-county primary election,” they asserted.The ANC is one of Liberia’s newest political parties, having gained full-fledged party status in 2013.Cummings said, “The party is dedicated to creating an inclusive government that will work for Liberians at all levels.”Meanwhile, Sulunteh served as senior national vice chairman of the ruling Unity Party that successfully re-elected President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in 2011. He resigned from the party on February 15.After his endorsement, Sulunteh expressed gratitude to the ANC and Mr. Cummings. “I am honored by my election as Cummings’ vice standard bearer. I believe and trust in Cummings’ leadership capacity and I am also inspired by Mr. Cummings and by his leadership. He is the best alternative Liberia has longed for due primarily to the many challenges the country faces. He is a reformer and achiever. The leadership and dedication of Cummings has inspired me so much, and the structural cohesion at the ANC has impressed me as well,” said Sulunteh.“With me as your pick, send me, because we will both sail Liberia to the destination where our children and children’s children can be proud of,” Sulunteh added.A crowd of Sulunteh supporters, under the banner, “Friends of Jeremiah Sulunteh,” also joined the ANC activities on Saturday.Mr. Sulunteh rose through the ranks of Liberia’s public service from senior commercial aide at the Bong County Agriculture Development Project in 1981, to the position of Liberia’s Ambassador to the United States, Mexico and Canada.He has held several cabinet positions, including Minister of Transport, Minister of Labor, Transport and Post and Telecommunications. Following his first appointment as Transport Minister, Sulunteh undertook a project to build an elementary and junior high school in his hometown of Gboimu.In addition, Mr. Sulunteh taught Economic Development at the Cuttington University Graduate School, his alma mater, and Public Finance Administration at the University of Liberia. He and his wife, Kabeh, are blessed with three children.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

PCC Mayor Inducted President of Association of Mayors of Liberia

first_imgMayor Gibson “we will work with the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA), United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG-A)”Paynesville City Mayor Cyvette M. Gibson was yesterday inducted as president of the Association of Mayors and Local Government Authorities of Liberia (AMLOGAL) at a program held at the Centennial Memorial Pavilion in Monrovia.Her 10-person administration will steer the affairs of AMLOGAL for the next two years. Madam Gibson said AMLOGAL will function to embrace all local authorities to build their capacities to become part of the government’s decentralization program.She said soliciting support from stakeholders and partners will be “our key strategy towards achieving this goal.”“In this regard, we will work with the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA), United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG-A) to put in place a full-fledged secretariat in six months, including hiring a robust, dedicated, and effective administrator with strong implementation skills to lead the secretariat,” she said.The secretariat will begin the implementation of “our five-year medium-term strategic plan under our leadership. During the same period, we will strive to obtain a Legislative Charter for AMLOGAL to enable it to have the appropriate status deserving of such an organization in the eyes of the Liberian society and the international community,” said Gibson.She said her leadership will engage the MIA to initiate the drafting of an act to be submitted to the Legislature.Mayor Gibson called on the MIA, UCLG-A and Cities Alliance to organize a one-week team building and resource mobilization training workshop for quick impact skills development and capacity building of the twenty city mayors who are the nucleus of AMLOGAL.“I assure our partners that the burden of financing this organization will not be your obligation. The first line of funding for AMLOGAL will be a one percent assessment of our individual city budgets which will be contributed as the annual membership dues,” Madam Gibson said.The secretary general of the UCLG-A Secretariat, Mr. Jean Pierre Elong Mbassi, pledged the organization’s support to the Liberian chapter.“I want to thank you for your clear vision, objectives and core values as mayors, who have led the formation of this body. I urge you to push your government to sign and ratify the Local Government Chapter. Since 2014, your government has yet to sign or ratify that agreement,” he noted.In remarks, the senior urban specialist of Cities Alliance, Mr. Omar Siddique, promised his organization’s commitment to providing financial support to the new AMLOGAL leadership.He disclosed that Liberia has become the 41st country in Africa to organize the local government association, stressing that this will further promote development at the local level.MIA’s Deputy Minister for Urban Affairs, Mr. Stephen Y. Neufville, said AMLOGAL will be a catalyst bringing many development benefits to Liberia as it paves the way for knowledge sharing among sister cities.Among the visitors at the occasion were Vice President Joseph Boakai, House Speaker Emmanuel Nuquay, Speaker, Pro Tempore Armah Z. Jallah, Internal Affairs Minister Henrique Tokpa, Deputy Minister at MIA Stephen Neufville, and GSA director general Mary T.

Workers get $637,000 in overdue pay

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Attorney Cynthia Dersh Schein, who represented the Davids, said all the nursing homes were owned and managed by separate companies, although in each company the Davids hold ownership interests. Nursing-home managers did not know when employees were working at other facilities that shared ownership, she said. She said state labor laws differ from federal laws on requiring overtime pay for work done at separate companies with shared ownership. “It was a totally innocent situation,” she said. “It’s not intentional.” Labor officials said the firm worked with the department to resolve the issues identified in the investigation and confirmed that measures are now in place to ensure that all hours worked by employees at multiple facilities are combined for overtime pay. Charles F. Bostwick, (661) 267-5742 [email protected] LANCASTER – Twenty-five employees at two Lancaster nursing homes will share $79,000 in back pay ordered by a U.S. Department of Labor investigation into overtime pay. Federal officials said the homes were among 13 in Southern California, owned jointly by Emmanuel and Ofelia David, that did not pay overtime when employees split their time between two or more facilities to work more than 40 hours a week. “The workers in this case were not getting their full pay, and I am glad that we were able to recover $637,000 in back wages for them,” U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao said in an announcement by her department. In all, 212 workers received back pay last month totaling $637,000 for work performed between December 2002 and July 2005 at the 13 facilities, the Labor Department said. The facilities were located from Riverside County to Los Angeles, and included Antelope Valley Healthcare and the neighboring Antelope Valley Care Center on 15th Street West in Lancaster. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgTHE DONEGAL County Board’s success in staging the Ulster Championship clash with Tyrone in Ballybofey is expected to pay rich dividends – all 18,000 tickets are expected to sell out.The Board are already discussing how they deal with a frenzied rush on tickets for the clash.But for the player it’s a rich reward for all their hard work. Mark McHugh reflected the feelings of all the players on the Ulster Council’s decision to refuse Tyrone’s bid to switch the match to their own back yard in Clones.“We are delighted, it’s a big lift to us. It is something we have been pushing for since we first heard the draw,” said Mark“We felt we deserved the game to be in Ballybofey, us being All-Ireland champions, so we are delighted.“Championship training starts next Tuesday and we’ll be fully focused on it and everything we do from now will be concentrating on Tyrone. “I think we half expected it maybe to go to Clones. The majority of people seemed to think Ballybofey was too small.

So it is good to get back to Ballybofey. For the local people of Donegal, it will bring a bit of a boost to the economy. There is going to be a lot of hype building up to it.”Certainly local businesses are delighted.A spokesman for Jackson’s Hotel told us: “There’s already quite a few enquiries about rooms that weekend.

first_imgPearse Doherty TDSinn Fein Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has strongly criticised the Government’s plan for an inquiry into the GSOC controversy but said it is not too late for it to establish one that is truly independent.The Donegal South-West TD made the comments while speaking in the Dáil tonight during the debate on a Sinn Féin PMB motion calling for a fully independent inquiry into the matter.Deputy Doherty said: “Every TD and political party should be screaming for a full and independent investigation into this incident.“The government’s plan smacks of a desperate attempt at damage limitation and does and will not address the concerns of the public.“It was wrong of Minister Shatter to try to turn this incident on its head and put GSOC in the dock. Entrusting the Minister to set the terms of reference means that the enquiry will do nothing to restore public confidence.“This crisis could be an opportunity to make a break from past bad habits and to move our society and police force into a more modern transparent era. Instead the conservative instinct of this government has won out and no questions are to be asked without prior approval. “It is not too late for this government to bring about a truly independent enquiry that will be about getting to the truth and not about getting over this weeks’ political crisis for them. The public are not going to settle for a cop-out- they demand an independent inquiry into the affair.Deputy Doherty also argued strongly for increased powers for GSOC stating:“The GSOC was established following the Morris tribunal in my home county of Donegal. This is the context in which the Garda Síochána Act, the GSOC and the Garda Síochána Inspectorate were introduced.“Sinn Fein argued very strongly that the GSOC did not have the requisite powers to do its job. GSOC must have oversight of the Commissioner and access to the PULSE system.” ‘WE NEED INDEPENDENT INQUIRY INTO GOSC’ – DOHERTY was last modified: February 19th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GOSCinquiryPearse Dohertylast_img read more

Rescued lions find home in South Africa

first_img3 May 2016Iron, Zeus, and Rapunzel are part of the group of rescued lions that arrived in South Africa on 1 May. They are three of the 33 big cats saved by Animal Defenders International (ADI) from circuses in Peru and Columbia and rehomed at the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in Limpopo.Iron’s release into the enclosure is the fairy-tale ending for 33 mistreated circus lions.“Iron is one of the Colombian 9, the first animals to be handed over after the country’s wild animal circus ban was passed,” wrote ADI on its Facebook page. “With his cage mate Ojiclaro, Iron was a pitiful sight, the years of suffering clearly visible on his face.”Iron is the first to be released! He’s enjoying a satisfying rub against a tree! #33lions— ADI (@AnimalDefenders) May 1, 2016Hear the lions roar at the airport, as they are transported to the sanctuary:According to the ADI, this is the largest transfer of lions, a process which started 18 months ago. The cost per cat per transfer was $10 000 (approximately R142 000).Care neededThe animals are no longer able to function in the wild, and will need to be taken care of.“Almost all of the rescued lions have been mutilated to remove their claws, one has lost an eye, another is almost blind, and many have smashed and broken teeth so would not survive in the wild,” ADI said in a statement.Their new South African home is a large natural enclosures containing drinking pools, platforms and toys.“The lion habitats will be steadily expanded over the coming months as the lions become familiar with their new life and are introduced to each other.”ADI president, Jan Creamer, said this is the first time the animals are in their natural habitat. “It’s the best environment for them.They have been beaten, they have been starved, and they have been deprived of everything that makes life worth living for a lion. We have brought them back to paradise, where they belong.” South reporterlast_img read more

What Is the Building Code?

first_imgBuilding Codes were established a long time ago as a way to ensure a minimum level of safety and sanitation. Plumbing codes keep our houses sanitary. Electrical codes reduce the risk of accidental electrocution and our homes from burning down. General building codes help stop the spread of fire if they do burn, but they also dictate structural stability based on natural calamities such as hurricanes, earthquakes, wind, flooding or temperature conditions as well as man-made events such as fires. It also mitigates slow degradation that can lead to structural catastrophes, like rotting beams or deck ledgers — it seems like every year we hear about a second or third-story deck collapse.Perhaps the most important part of the safety and sanitation mission is dictating a minimum standard without unintentionally creating un-affordability. If no one can afford to buy a home, it doesn’t matter how safe or sanitary it is built.The International Code Council (ICC) publishes the International Building Code, International Plumbing Code, International Mechanical Code and the International Fuel Gas Code. These codes are the typical reference documents for a new commercial building. The ICC also publishes the International Residential Code (IRC) that is normally the reference document for new homes. The IRC includes architectural, structural, energy efficiency, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas and electrical provisions all in one book, but for new construction. The International Property Maintenance Code sets out the minimum code requirements for existing buildings. This code establishes those conditions that are regarded as unsafe and allows an inspector to order repairs necessary to mitigate the unsafe condition. The International Energy Conservation Code goes farther than the IRC in energy efficiency measures and is more commonly used for commercial buildings.Uniformity and consistency across the nationBuilding Codes have been historically regulated at the local or state level in all 50 states. The need for more consistency has lead to model codes across large regions of the country. The result in the early twentieth century was three separate major codes developed by different associations — the Uniform Building Code (ICBO), the Southern Building Code (SBCCI), the BOCA Basic Building Code (BOCA) and the One and Two Family Dwelling Code (CABO). While this was an improvement, it still was cumbersome for the builders, architects or engineers working in more than one jurisdiction.Worse, the different standards meant that various parts of the United States had higher or lower standards for safety, sanitation and health. However, with the advent of the IRC in 2000, this improved dramatically. The IRC, now in its 4th edition, is adopted in 48 states and the District of Columbia. Now the country is more consistent in building code enforcement that ever before. While the model codes help establish uniformity across the continent, each jurisdiction amends the code to reflect local tradition, custom, or circumstances. Because of this, building codes still sometimes conflict across city, county or state boundaries. Over time, these boundary disputes will become fewer, but thanks to the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, they will always be present. Because of state autonomy guaranteed by the 10th amendment, there will never be a federally enforced building code across all 50 states. Hopefully, there will be more consistency as more states decrease local amendments.last_img read more

Photograph: Ben Curtis/AP Share on Messenger Read more Share on LinkedIn John Isner will play no-Trumps but a lot of aces in his first Wimbledon semi-final on Friday as, despite a cheeky invitation this week from the flagpole-tall American, the president and the first lady will be having afternoon tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle at about the time Big John puts his umpteenth free point past Kevin Anderson.Isner, at 33 and 6ft 8in, has played the most consistent tennis of his life over the first 10 days of this tournament and declared after beating Milos Raonic in the quarter-finals on Wednesday: “It’s by far the best grand slam I’ve ever played in my career, and I’ve been playing for 11 years. From my very first practice … I knew I was in a good spot. Physically I’ve felt awesome.” Share on WhatsApp Since you’re here… Support The Guardian Wimbledon Rafael Nadal Not only has he cracked 161 aces, more than anyone else and 48 ahead of Anderson, who is no slouch with ball in hand, but he has topped the tournament table for accuracy, landing 405 of 535 first serves in the box, conceded only seven break points and saved them all, way above the average of 64%, and has won all his 95 service games. That is scarily good, especially with the ball arriving at the other end at up to 144mph.While Trump would have been a distraction in the royal box – especially if the wind were to cut through his hair spray – the 15,000 sunbathers on Centre Court instead have a double bill of Isner and Anderson at 1pm, followed by the main course, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.It is fair to say the first semi-final will feature less subtlety than the second. Neither Isner nor the 6ft 8in South African (who lives in Florida with his American wife and has applied for dual citizenship) will go gently. Anderson has served pretty well, too, though not with quite the non-stop intensity of his friend and rival.They played each other at college – still the main nursery for professional tennis in the United States – and have met 11 times on the Tour. Isner leads their head-to-head record 8-3, including their only match on grass, at Queen’s eight years ago, but most of those have been close.Anderson comes to the final Friday with the biggest possible boost after coming from two sets and match-point down to beat the eight-times champion, Roger Federer, in a heart-stopping match on No 1 Court, the Swiss’s first visit there since 2015. He will probably not want to go back.Isner and his wife are expecting their first child in September and he says: “There’s a lot of very cool things going on right now, life-changing things.” He said the only time he has played on Centre Court was during the London Olympics, and admitted: “I have no clue what that court looks like. I played Roger in 2012. I can’t really remember it.” He lost in straight sets – with a tie-break, of course.But, for all that Isner is on a high, literally and figuratively, Anderson’s win over Federer could be the key to this match. It has dramatically boosted the sometimes fragile self-belief of one of the game’s most amenable souls. It will be close – and tough on the backboards.Nadal is similarly battle-hardened after outlasting Juan Martín del Potro in the best match of the men’s draw so far, a judgment handed down from the BBC commentary box by Andy Murray.After smoothly slicing through his first four matches the five-set struggle over four hours and 47 minutes, the longest of the tournament, was probably Nadal’s perfect preparation for Djokovic, who will test his stamina and movement in entirely different ways, with swift changes of direction rather than raw power and, if it is singing, his serve. Share on Twitter Novak Djokovic It will be their 52nd meeting and, as Nadal reminded everyone, nobody in the game has such a rivalry. Djokovic leads by the single victory.“It’s always a big challenge to face Novak,” Nadal said (probably for the 51st time). “He is one of the more complex players that I’ve ever seen in our sport.”He is that – in more ways than one. Djokovic has had the air of a troubled man for most of this tournament and has been reluctant to talk about his serial flare-ups on court, against officials, fans, his box and himself.But, as he said after bawling and bashing his way past Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals, he can use that psychological energy to find an edge – yet it did not sound wholly convincing. It is true he is most dangerous when fired up but there are better ways to do that than screaming at the chair umpire or his team.Still, he has played some superb tennis this fortnight. Murray said the other day it would not surprise him if Djokovic went on to win his fourth singles title here. And he could be right.

Paul Finebaum Asks The Unthinkable About Tua Tagovailoa

For the season, the sophomore sidearm tossed 43 touchdowns against only six interceptions.Do we know how Tagovailoa will be in the NFL? No, of course not. He’s still a year away from being there.But Finebaum is stretching things a little bit here. He probably wanted to do that though in the first place.

He’s not afraid to ruffle the feathers of SEC fans.Alabama fans might have a bone to pick with the ESPN radio host after he questioned their starting quarterback on the air today. It happened right at the beginning of Finebaum’s show.While riffing about different SEC topics, Finebaum touched on Tua Tagovailoa and asked if he’s “really that good,” good enough for NFL teams to want to “tank” for him.“What about ‘Tanking for Tua?’ Is that a good idea?

Mary Kom enters final allIndian final in seven mens categories

first_imgGuwahati: Six-time world champion Mary Kom overcame some stiff resistance to beat promising Nikhat Zareen in a split decision to enter the women’s 51kg category final, while the men pugilists dominated the ring by making it an all-Indian gold-medal clash in seven categories in the India Open here Thursday. In the most-anticipated bout of the day, 22-year-old former world junior champion Nikhat of Telangana was at her aggressive best against her ‘idol’ Mary Kom who was happy to play the waiting game before taking the upper hand in the third round to win 4-1. Also Read – We don’t ask for kind of tracks we get: Bowling coach ArunThe 36-year-old Mary Kom, who was making her competitive debut at home in 51kg, took some blows initially but was quick to make amends as Nikhat was not able to connect her punches as the bout progressed. Using her vast experience, Mary Kom regained her composure and dealt a few telling blows on the Strandja Memorial gold winner Nikhat and that seemed to have clinched the issue in favour of the London Olympics bronze medallist Manipuri in the third round. Also Read – Bastian Schweinsteiger announces retirement, could join Germany set-upMary Kom will face Vanlal Duati of Mizoram in the gold-medal bout on Friday. In the men’s section, 17 Indians stormed into the final in 10 weight categories. Continuing his dream run, former world youth champion Sachin Siwach registered an upset win over reigning Commonwealth Games champion Gaurav Solanki in a unanimous decision to set up a 51kg gold medal clash against Asian Games gold medalist Amit Panghal. A day after he eliminated World Championship bronze medalist Rogen Ladon in a well-calculated bout, the 20-year-old from Haryana had his task cut out against his sparring partner but he again emerged victorious. Panghal, who had clinched a gold in his new weight category in the Asian Championship, defeated national champion P L Prasad in the second 52kg semifinal. Panghal had won the Asian Games gold in Jakarta last year in 49kg. “Amit has improved a lot of late but this is my big chance to show my prowess at a major competition. I hope to give my best and return winner,” Siwach, who won a bronze at the GeeBee Boxing tournament in Finland in March, said. Shiva Thapa also remained on course to clinching a gold at the same venue where he was crowned national champion three years ago as he fended off a strong challenge from his Polish opponent D Krystian Sczepanski to emerge 5-0 winner. Sczepanski was at his aggressive best and kept hurling punches but Shiva cleverly kept frustrating his opponent by going out of his range. “It made him tired at the end of every round. I was playing my style, did not give my 100 per cent. I was just trying to be tactical with him and let his punches go in the air and miss it so that he loses his control and confidence,” Shiva said. He will face Manish Kaushik in the 60kg final on Friday. There was also a setback in store for India in the men’s 75kg category, when Manjeet Panghal twisted his knee in the first round to be knocked out by his Filipino opponent Eumir Felix Delos Santosh. Santosh will face Ashish Kumar in the final.last_img read more

Indigenous womans grave site brings pilgrims to former BC residential school

first_imgFRASER LAKE, B.C. – Rose Prince arrived at the former Lejac Residential School in British Columbia when she was six years old and never left.Her grave site on the grounds of the Catholic-run institution at Fraser Lake is all that remains of the school, but it brings Indigenous and non-Indigenous visitors on pilgrimages every year seeking spiritual and physical healing.Prince was known for her devout faith, compassion, humility and self-sacrifice. But it’s the almost unreal circumstances surrounding her death and claims of healing that prompts the pilgrimage to her grave every July.Her acclaim has gained the attention of the Vatican as a possible candidate for sainthood.Prince was 34 when she died of tuberculosis in 1949. It has been reported that Prince’s body did not cool after she died at the former St. John’s Hospital in nearby Vanderhoof.When her gravesite was disturbed by construction two years later, her opened casket revealed her body hadn’t decayed.“The workers were amazed to find her body and clothing perfectly preserved,” says a brochure produced by the Prince George diocese.“They found her body in perfect condition. She seemed to be transparent and looked as if she were sleeping. There was ‘just a tiny bit of a smile on her face.’ A bouquet of withered flowers was on her chest.”Gravediggers, nuns and priests from the residential school reported a floral scent in the air. Only the bouquet of flowers she was buried with had wilted.Among Catholics, “incorruption” of the body is believed to be a sign of a life of holiness and reflects the victory of Christ over death.Grand Chief Ed John said he can’t confirm miracles but has experienced an unexplained phenomenon at Prince’s grave.John, who spent seven years at the Lejac school, said he often visits Prince’s grave to pray and seek strength from her spirit. Many Indigenous people across B.C. already consider Prince a saint, he said, but it could take the church decades or more to decide.“She’s a special person in our peoples’ history and we revere her in many respects,” said John, the leader of the First Nations Summit, one of B.C.’s largest Indigenous organizations. “We’ve heard stories of people who have had miraculous cures. I understand the church has taken steps to document that.”He can’t logically explain what he felt during one visit to the grave, but John said he experienced her presence.“I was there and I get out of my vehicle and I’m walking towards the site of her burial and all you could smell were roses,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it. It was early enough that there wasn’t really any flowers out there yet. I can’t make heads or tails of that.”Jack Lacerte was 10 years old when he saw Prince’s body after the coffin opened in 1951 as he helped his father, who was a caretaker at the school.Lacerte died three years ago and was the last surviving person who saw the body, but his wife Shirley said her husband — one of Canada’s first Indigenous RCMP officers — never changed his story.The pilgrimages to the Lejac school site, which started in 1990, bring people from across Western Canada and the North, said Rev. Vince James of St. Andrew’s Parish in Fraser Lake, located about 160 kilometres west of Prince George.Fraser Lake miner Nick Loza told the Vancouver Sun in the 1990s he became pain free after soil from Prince’s grave was mixed with holy water and rubbed on his damaged spine.A letter signed by Loza describes the experience he had on Aug. 13, 1991: “The afternoon of August 13th, Father Jules Goulet anointed me and prayed for me through the intercession of Rose Prince. Since the anointing I just keep getting better. After three days I was able to walk again having to endure little pain. I was also able to have a full night’s rest every night.”James said he sees the pilgrimages as “people gathering to share their faith with each other.”“I believe that Rose is a great soul and a holy woman. Some people claim she, through her intercession, they’re healed physically or spiritually.”He said the church moves slowly on matters of sainthood, but “Rome knows about Rose. We’ve sent information over that we had.”James said a Vatican official has visited the parish about Prince.The Vatican’s five steps to sainthood involve waiting five years after the person’s death, becoming a servant of God, showing proof of a life of heroic virtue, verifying miracles and canonization.James said the pilgrimages are emotional gatherings because Prince brings those wanting to share their faith, but many wounded by their residential school experiences also arrive at the former school, which was torn down in 1976.“They say, I hated the place,” he said. “My grandmother went here. I’ve come here not to be happy, but now that I’ve experienced the weekend I feel good about it. I haven’t forgiven. I’ve got a lot of pain in my heart.”Among the school’s darkest chapters was the death of four boys in 1937. Ranging in age from seven to nine, the boys froze to death in January 1937 on Fraser Lake after running away from the school in -29 C temperatures.Prince was at the school when the boys died.“They were found huddled together on the ice the next morning,” said John. “It’s just tragic. It’s heartbreaking for us to see it now.”He said the boys were trying to get home, much the same as Chanie Wenjack, the Indigenous youth who died trying to return to his family from a residential school in Ontario. Wenjack’s journey became the subject of an illustrated book and recording by the Tragically Hip’s Gord Downie, who died this year.Wilma Pattison said she considers her aunt a saint who lived a devout life where worldly things did not matter.Prince died when Pattison was three years old, but she’ll never forget walking into St. Andrew’s Parish in Fraser Lake for her first time almost 50 years ago.Minutes after entering the church, Pattison said Sister Mary Ann gave her a greeting card made by Prince. The card was dated July 1948, the year before she died, and was addressed to the nun.Sister Mary Ann said she vowed to give the card to the first person from Prince’s family to come to the church.Pattison says the card is signed, “With Love from Rose Prince.”“May all the days of all the years that God has still in store be filled with every joy and grace to bless you more and more,” said one of the handwritten verses.last_img read more

Christine Sinclair probably wont play forever So appreciate her now

first_imgIn today’s Big Story podcast, Canada’s opening match at the Women’s World Cup is today. And, as usual, the best player on the pitch will be Christine Sinclair.

UN agency to begin training electoral observers ahead of Solomon Islands polls

30 July 2010Officials from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will this weekend begin training and briefing more than 60 international observers who have arrived in the Solomon Islands to monitor parliamentary elections being staged next week. Officials from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will this weekend begin training and briefing more than 60 international observers who have arrived in the Solomon Islands to monitor parliamentary elections being staged next week.A team from UNDP and other development partners will give deployment plans, pre- and post-election briefings, and administrative, logistical and operational support to the observers, according to a statement issued by the agency yesterday in Honiara, the national capital.The observers, working in pairs, are expected to monitor conduct at more than 180 of the nearly 900 polling stations being set up across the Pacific archipelago for next Wednesday’s ballot.UNDP has been coordinating the election observer programme after a request from the Solomon Islands Government and electoral authorities in the country.In its statement the agency stressed the importance of free and fair elections, saying such polls are the “basis for healthy democracy, and vital to ensure political stability and a climate fostering sustainable human development.”Solomon Islands, which has been independent since 1978, has a 50-member national parliament whose members are elected to four-year terms. The last polls were held in 2006. read more

UNs key role flagged as Security Council debates challenges of Afghan transition

19 December 2011The United Nations peacekeeping chief today reaffirmed the world body’s unwavering commitment to stand by Afghanistan, adding that it is examining how it can best assist the country as it proceeds with the transfer of security responsibilities and takes greater ownership of its development. “The United Nations is committed to supporting the Afghan Government and its people for the long term,” Hervé Ladsous, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, told the Security Council as it met to discuss the situation in Afghanistan.“We have been in Afghanistan for more than half a century assisting the Afghan people and we will be there far beyond 2014 as long as the Afghans need us,” he added.The Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) is currently leading a comprehensive review of the mandated activities of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) and the UN’s support in country, as requested by the Council. “International assistance must support the Afghans in their efforts to strengthen their institutions and to advance economic development, rule of law and respect for human rights,” noted Mr. Ladsous, who recently visited the country and held talks with a range of actors on the UN’s future role. “These processes take time in the best of conditions. They will also take time to materialize in Afghanistan.” At the International Conference on Afghanistan, held in the German city of Bonn earlier this month, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon outlined three main priorities for the UN as it moves forward. These are to help link security and development; to promote and assist an Afghan-led, inclusive reconciliation process based on dialogue and consensus; and to continue to advocate for and promote human rights, in particular the rights of women and children. The UN received a clear message of support in Bonn for its crucial role in Afghanistan from the Afghan Government and the international community, Mr. Ladsous said. “It is time to look again at that role and refocus our mandate, adjusting it to the evolving situation on the ground.”An inter-agency team that visited the country recently will compile its findings and recommendations to inform the Council’s discussions related to the renewal of UNAMA’s mandate in March 2012.Mr. Ladsous also reported that the transfer of security responsibilities to Afghan forces is proceeding apace. “But there is no room for complacency,” he stated, stressing that for the transition to be sustainable, security has to be linked to development.“The Afghan people must see tangible improvements to their daily lives, especially in terms of economic opportunities. It is more urgent than ever, therefore, that the civilian side of transition proceed equally strongly and briskly.” Also noteworthy, he added, are recent apparent signs of a relative decline in the number of security incidents, as the UN records them. To date this year there has been a 21 per cent rise in incidents as compared to 2010. However, this was mainly due to the elevated number of incidents in the early part of the year. In September, October and November, the number of incidents fell as compared to the previous three months. Mr. Ladsous added that there is still “a long way to go” in protecting civilians, securing the rights of women, and tackling humanitarian concerns that continue to afflict the country. Jawed Ludin, Deputy Foreign Minister of Afghanistan, told the Council that, as the country moves forward, the role of the UN will remain “crucial.” He reported that, with the implementation of the second tranche of the transition announced by President Hamid Karzai last month, Afghan forces are taking charge of security for over 50 per cent of the country. “Transition, however, is not just about security,” he added. “As we move to take full responsibility for defending our country and securing the lives of our people, we are also assuming greater ownership of affairs on the civilian front, including the political process and the development agenda.”The Council, in a statement read by Ambassador Vitaly Churkin of Russia, which holds the Council’s presidency for this month, said it welcomes the conclusions of the International Conference on Afghanistan and the declaration in Bonn which states that the process of transition, which will end in 2014, should be followed by a decade of transformation in which “Afghanistan consolidates its sovereignty through strengthening a fully functioning, sustainable state in the service of its people.”The Council stressed that the process of transition should entail the assumption of the leadership responsibility by the Afghan Government and that this should be followed with strong partnerships and commitments between the Government and the international community.The Council also heard from the former Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of UNAMA, Staffan de Mistura, and was introduced to his successor, Jan Kubiš, who will take up his duties next month. read more

UN appeals for funds to avert cut in food aid to Syrian

“We have raised just 40 per cent of the $4.4 billion needed for Syria and neighbouring countries for this year,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the 68th General Assembly on its opening day in a briefing on Syria. “I call on Governments to help us meet this unprecedented crisis while still meeting their commitments to other emergencies.”Over 100,000 Syrians have been killed, more than 2 million have fled to neighbouring countries and a further 4 million have been internally displaced since fighting began in March 2011 between the Government and opposition groups seeking to oust President Bashar Al-Assad. Mr. Ban called the situation “desperate” in a briefing largely devoted to the findings of a UN report that Sarin gas was used in a chemical attack that reportedly killed hundreds of people on the outskirts of Damascus last month. Specifically outlining the severe consequences of the funding shortfall, UN agencies called for greater generosity to avert a cutback in food aid next month for hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees in Lebanon, where $127 million still needs to be raised.Some 720,000 Syrians have so far poured into Lebanon, fleeing the civil war raging in their own country, while the funding for Lebanon is only 27 per cent covered, UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokesperson Melissa Fleming told a news briefing in Geneva, citing the needs of the UN World Food Programme (WFP).If the UN had the means, many more needs could be addressed, but if the current trend continued, there would need to be prioritization, she said when asked about reports that the UN would cut down aid to Syrian refugees in Lebanon as of 1 October. Those most vulnerable, those in greatest needs and those unable to support themselves in any way would need to be put first, she added. There were some refugees who had absolutely nothing, no recourse to work and no relatives or support system in Lebanon. Meanwhile, the WFP reported today that it has extended its distribution of food vouchers to Syrian refugees in Jordan to 100,000 more people, living in Zaatari camp. The scheme substitutes vouchers for direct food delivery, allowing refugees to buy the food of their choice from designated shops inside the camp while allowing the local economy to benefit. In August, WFP reached more than 300,000 Syrian refugees living in Jordan through vouchers, injecting over $11 million into the Jordanian economy.“By involving Jordanian community organizations to set up the shops and ensuring supplies are sourced from local traders, the voucher system also helps to support the towns and villages around the camp and boost the local economy,” WFP Emergency Coordinator in Jordan, Jonathan Campbell said in the capital, Amman.For an introductory period refugees in Zaatari will receive a voucher in addition to the regular WFP monthly ration of bulgur wheat, pasta, rice, lentils, sugar and salt so that they have time to familiarize themselves with this new form of assistance, gradually increasing the value of the voucher while reducing the food commodities until the camp is aided entirely through the voucher system.“I haven’t had eggs for a long time,” said Sawsan, a mother of five children, from Dara’a, who fled the conflict a year ago. “I can now buy milk and cheese,” she added as she entered one of the shops, crowded with refugees eager to use their new vouchers. WFP also uses food vouchers for Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt, and local economies have received over $153 million since the beginning of 2013 through the system.In the part of his briefing devoted to the use of Sarin gas in Syria, Mr. Ban repeated the remarks he made yesterday on presenting the report. “The United Nations Mission has now confirmed, unequivocally and objectively, that chemical weapons have been used in Syria,” he said. “The facts speak for themselves. This is the most significant confirmed use of chemical weapons against civilians since Saddam Hussein used them in Halabja in 1988. “This is a war crime and a grave violation of the 1925 Protocol and other rules of customary international law. I trust all can join me in condemning this despicable crime,” he added, calling for an end to arms flows to Syria, “which only sustain the bloodshed.” read more

Judge strikes out request to withdraw Bisrams murder charge

-Bisram’s lead attorney ordered to pay State $250,000 in court costsHigh Court Judge Gino Persaud on Tuesday ruled against the application to have the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) withdraw the case against high profile murder accused Marcus Bisram who is currently awaiting extradition from the United States.Murder accused: Marcus BisramOne day after his absence angered Justice Persaud, Bisram’s lead attorney, Sanjeev Datadin appeared at the High Court to defend his hurried application to have the matter withdrawn before the judge who was initially set to rule on Monday. However, despite the lawyer requesting to withdraw, Justice Persaud ruled against Datadin withdrawing at this late stage, later citing that the court has the duty to stand against ‘dubious methods’ that could bring the justice system into disrepute.On September 25, Datadin filed an application on behalf of Bisram’s mother Sharmilla Inderjali to quash the murder charge against Bisram on grounds that one of main witnesses for the Prosecution recanted their statement, a contention which the lawyer maintained outside of court on Tuesday.The judge however, observed that the attorney’s notice of discontinuation, which was filed on Friday, was an abuse of process. As such, Justice Persaud struck out the entire case highlighting that there was “material non-disclosure” on Datadin’s behalf, since he did not include in his affidavit that he made an application on December last to stop the DPP from advising the police in Bisram murder probe. Justice Persaud stated that an applicant is required to present all facts, even if they are against the said applicant, adding that the court must be approached  “with clean hands” when seeking prerogative relief.Sanjeev Datadin exiting court on Tuesday“The application of 2016 was not disclosed to this court and it was only through the court’s records that it was detected,” the Judge explained.In his judgment, he further noted that there are clear legal provisions to discharge orders nisi when there is material non-disclosure, without going into the further merits of the case.Justice Persaud struck out three orders nisi, one of which sought to prevent the three respondents – the DPP, Chief Magistrate and Commissioner of Police from pursuing the murder probe against Bisram. As the orders nisi were discharged, Datadin was also ordered to pay the State by way of the three respondents, $250,000 in court costs.Murdered: Fiyazz NarinedattNew Yorker, Marcus Bisram, was charged in absentia last year for the murder of 27-year-old, Number 70 Village Corentyne Carpenter, Fiyazz Narinedatt who was killed after he reportedly rejected Bisram’s sexual advances.The five other men charged for the November 1, 2016, killing of Narinedatt were Radesh Motie, 39; Diadatt Datt, 18; Harri Paul Parsram, 49; Orlando Dickie and Niran Yacoob, 37.Two of the accused had reportedly confessed to investigators that they were ordered by the overseas-based Guyanese businessman to dump the carpenter’s body on the Number 70 Public Road to make his death seem the result of a hit and run accident.Additionally, the businessman’s mother and sister were also charged and remanded to prison after they allegedly offered bribes to Police ranks to “duck the case”. The mother, Inderjali was recently charged for witness tampering.Since the commencement of the preliminary inquiry in Berbice, several persons have been accused of witness tampering and Nariendatt’s family stated outside of court on Tuesday that they are constantly living in fear that they could be shot and killed at any moment due to the influence Bisram has with money and power.

FaceTime glitch shows random pictures iPhone captured itself

first_imgA strange topic has been brought up on the Apple Discussions forum. It seems that some people using FaceTime are seeing photos of the person they’re talking to, or themselves, in the middle of their conversation. It gets stranger though, as those photos seem to have been captured without the user’s knowledge.User Kar0786 started by saying her and her boyfriend have both experienced the problem several times recently. Apparently, a picture freezes on the screen when one person is calling the other. The person on the receiving end only sees a black screen. The concern is that the photos being brought up are pictures of them both at work. Kar0786 has used FaceTime at work but never taken a picture while there with her phone. Her boyfriend hasn’t used FaceTime or taken a picture at work, so the iPhone is seemingly capturing images without their knowledge. These are showing up on Kar0786’s end, whereas her boyfriend is still seeing the black screen, and vice versa when her boyfriend calls her.Another user said he called his girlfriend using FaceTime and a photo showed up that was not even stored in his phone confirming this isn’t an isolated issue.According to the comments, it’s a hard thing to fix. User nasetron said they called Apple support, and was told to restore the phone and manually re-install all of their apps, but that didn’t seem to do the trick. Apple then had the user return the iPhone and swap it out for a different one, which also didn’t help. The same user said they are using iOS 4.3, and hadn’t updated yet to 4.3.1. Another commenter said she’s using the newest OS update, and her boyfriend isn’t, and they have the problem, so maybe it’s a iOS 4.3 and iOS 4.3.1 compatibility issue?The issue of privacy has been brought up, because most people don’t want photos of them being taken from their own phone when they’re unaware of it.Have you experienced this problem with FaceTime?Read more at Apple Discussionslast_img read more

Xbox 360 update removes Twitter and Facebook apps

first_imgEarlier this week Microsoft finalized and started rolling out the latest update to the Xbox 360 menu interface–the Dashboard. One of the big new editions is an Internet Explorer app for surfing the Internet and accessing a range of browser-based online services. However, those who have applied the update notice IE has come at a cost of a couple of popular apps.Microsoft has removed both the Twitter and Facebook apps that were previously available to use on its console from the Xbox Marketplace. No explanation has been given for them disappearing, but it is thought they have gone in order to encourage use of Internet Explorer. Both Twitter and Facebook are setup to work through a browser interface, so that make some sense, but it seems silly to force use of the browser to get access to popular social services.If you already had the Twitter and Facebook apps installed, don’t worry, they won’t disappear with the update and you can continue to use them. All new users are out of luck, though. However, my suspicion is that if enough people get upset about the removal Microsoft will make them available again. Alternatively, this is a mistake on Microsoft’s part which will be rectified in the coming days.The roll out of the Dashboard update is quite limited at the moment. Most consoles won’t get it until October 23 at which point this issue will have been resolved one way or another. I don’t think even Microsoft knows for sure what’s happening as both Facebook and Twitter are still listed on the Xbox Live partners page.via The Vergelast_img read more

25 arrested for human trafficking

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Twenty-five people, including four police officers, were arrested in a police operation to dismantle one of the largest human trafficking rings in Eastern Europe and the Balkans which was active in the “recruitment “ of foreign women that were then made to work in strip clubs, illegal brothels or as escorts. Raids were conducted on eight night clubs, four brothels, two yachts and 10 houses. The leader of the ring was a nightclub owner and the two “lieutenants” were also in the same line of work. Their operation included four strip clubs in Greece and one in Germany, while two more such clubs were being planned in the west Athens district of Peristeri and on the Aegean islands of Rhodes.last_img read more

Danny Rose reveals side of club football he wouldnt wish on

first_imgEngland’s Danny Rose has started to understand how football can overwhelm people after experiences in the club game that he “wouldn’t wish on anybody”.Rose received an outpouring of goodwill from the public and fellow players after opening up about his struggles with mental health. He explained how a lengthy injury lay-off and the suicide of an uncle led him to visit a psychologist and spend a number of months on medication.The Tottenham left-back intends to help other sufferers after the World Cup, using his revelations to shine light on the side of professional football rarely seen.Asked why he is so honest, Rose told IRN via Evening Standard:“I don’t know, really.“It is the best job in the world, don’t get me wrong, but I think people seem to think there’s no other issues within football.

I don’t believe in hiding that from people.“Even though I feel very privileged to play football, it’s not something I would – with the things I’ve experienced within the game – be shouting from the rooftops to recommend to people’s children to be a footballer.“Because there are a lot of things that happen on a day-to-day basis at club football that I wouldn’t wish on anybody.”Rose would not go into specifics but added:“There’s pressure, there’s politics – there’s loads of things.“There’s not just playing on a Saturday and you receiving your money at the end of the month.

Man uses iPad app to track down stolen SUV

first_imgA Vancouver restaurant owner used a downloaded program on his iPad on Thursday morning to locate his stolen truck, authorities said.When Teo Ramirez, 28, arrived to Los Potrillos Mexican Restaurant, 14415 S.E.

statistics On paper it seems like STD rates should be dropping Condom use is up Teenagers and millennials are having less sex with fewer partners than generations past Stigmas around sexuality and sexual health are beginning to break down And yet for four consecutive years STD rates have broken records Why The problem is complicated says Dr Bradley Stoner medical director of the St Louis STD/HIV Prevention Training Center at Washington University in St Louis But a good portion of it he says can be traced back to lackluster funding for federal resources like the CDC which has seen its budget for STD prevention sit stagnant for almost two decades Increasing federal funding he says could allow organizations like the CDC to hire more people focused on STD prevention increase public health education campaigns and make testing and treatment resources more accessible Without adequate resources however Stoner says the STD prevention community doesn’t have the manpower to take steps that could really work things like building out systems and procedures for contacting and screening the partners of people who are diagnosed with infections who may be carrying and spreading STDs without knowing it (Many STDs are asymptomatic often making it difficult to know if you have one Stoner says) “If we could bump up the STD workforce in terms of things like partner notification and outreach education and awareness then we would have a better chance at bringing these rates down” Stoner says The nationwide closure of publicly funded STD clinics hasn’t helped matters either Stoner says “With the Affordable Care Act there was a sense that people are going to have a medical home and you’re not going to need these publicly funded clinics” Stoner says But as these facilities close their doors more and more people are either unable to get the care they need or are turning up at emergency rooms or urgent care clinics “where they may not have the STD expertise” necessary to screen and treat patients properly Stoner says Alison Marshall a clinical expert at the Sylvie Ratelle STD/HIV Prevention Center of New England and a clinical instructor at Boston College’s Connell School of Nursing says a counterintuitive factor may also be contributing to riskier sexual behaviors: medical advances against HIV and AIDS In the past Marshall says people thought of AIDS as a “death sentence” and took precautions accordingly But today with effective treatments and preventive measures on the market “our younger generations didn’t grow up with that pressure We wonder if that public health message dimming down a little bit has had the repercussions of certain people choosing not to use contraception” Marshall says That effect may be particularly pronounced among men who have sex with men who accounted for around 70% of syphilis diagnoses in 2017 according to the CDC report Even still syphilis is slowly but surely spreading to other populations according to the CDC which could point to changing cultural norms “There’s a lot of sexual fluidity right now” Marshall says with more and more people identifying as bisexual or gender fluid or deciding not to self-identify at all These “bridge populations” Stoner says may spread traditionally group-specific diseases such as syphilis to new communities Syphilis is also a good case study for how socioeconomic factors can influence STD prevalence Rates of congenital syphilis infections that affect babies at birth are also up which Stoner says points at least in part to lax screening practices among doctors But diagnoses are also concentrated among mothers in the South “where health care access for under-resourced women is pretty poor” Marshall notes “Part of the congenital syphilis problem is access to care” Similar trends occur at the local level for virtually any kind of STD Stoner says “You can look and map STDs in any city and you’ll find some parts of town that have higher rates than others” he says “A lot of it’s along those gradients of economic disparity and other markers of societal marginalization” That pattern Marshall says partially explains why national STD rates are increasing even in the face of seemingly promising research about things like more widespread condom use “People who tend to think about STI prevention are often the people who are risk-averse” that is people who don’t abuse substances or have sex with multiple partners she says “You can have 10 non-risky people adopt using condoms and really have no effect on the STD rate But if you have one risky person who’s not using them you can have a multiplier effect” That problem she says again gets back to funding for STD prevention and the need for a renewed focus on public health campaigns and education Stoner agrees “This is not a moment where people are really excited about tax and spend opportunities” Stoner says “but I really do think there’s a responsibility of public health systems to use tax money for the betterment of the entire community” Write to Jamie Ducharme at [email protected] Banks has been cast as alliterative villain Rita Repulsa in the upcoming Power Rangers film The film

Adarsh Housing Society has not revealed any fresh findings and its investigation into the case is over The agency last week informed a division bench of Justices R V More and Sadhana Jadhav that it has submitted a report in a sealed cover to another bench of the HC The division bench headed by Justices More is hearing a petition filed by Congress leader Ashok Chavan challenging the governor’s decision granting the CBI nod to prosecute him in the Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society scam In October last the HC had asked the CBI to conduct further probe into alleged `benami’ (proxy) flats in the Adarsh building even as the Central agency said it has already completed its probe in the scam and submitted chargesheet two years ago The order was passed on a PIL filed by activist Pravin Wategaonkar alleging that senior bureaucrats and politicians held benami flats in the south Mumbai high rise which was a quid-pro-quo for clearing files related to the housing society in violation of several norms Last week Chavan’s counsel Amit Desai while claiming the CBI was only acting at the behest of the BJP-led government told the division bench that it has been a year since the HC ordered the agency to carry out further probe in the case but till date no report in the form of supplementary chargesheet has been filed in the lower court To this CBI counsel Hiten Venegaonkar told the HC

fresh material is found Our report says there is nothing more to probe in the case and that our investigation is complete” Venegaonkar said Wategaonkar’s petition is likely to come up for hearing in November The agency had filed a first information report (FIR) on January 29 2011 in which it named 14 accused including Chavan a former Maharashtra chief minister The other accused included top bureaucrats and retired army officials among others The agency filed its first chargesheet in July 2012 The Central agency had later filed a supplementary chargesheet in the case revealing details of

Former Mumbai Indians coach Ricky Ponting selected his best-ever XI from 10 years of the Indian Premier League Seven of the playing eleven spots were taken up by Indian players Interestingly MS Dhoni was named as the skipper of the side “It was a very tough team to pick because I could only get the four overseas guys in there” he said and added”So there were a few notable names that have missed out on selection Things got pretty difficult but I’ve tried to put the best possible team together that I’ve ever seen in IPL history” For the opening slot Ponting has chosen the destructive duo of Chris Gayle and David Warner “I’ve gone for two extremely dynamic opening batsmen and I wouldn’t like to be an opening bowler bowling to these two together” The middle order comprises of a strong unit featuring Virat Kohli Rohit Sharma Suresh Raina MS Dhoni “MS Dhoni is at No6 and he’ll also be the captain of my side He brings huge experience and whenever he’s at the crease … you’re always a chance of winning the game I’ve seen him do it off his own bat on several occasions so I’ll go with him as skipper with the gloves and batting at No6” Following this is are the trio of Dwayne Bravo Harbhajan Singh Amit Mishra Explaining his choice of going with Amit Mishra he said” I’ve gone for a bit of a shock here and have put Amit Mishra on the side He’s got an outstanding IPL record he’s got great variations and he’s a wicket-taker because he’s not scared to throw the ball up He turns the ball enough both ways and he’s been a great performer for a long long time” Among the pacers Lasith Malinga and Ashish Nehra lead the attack “A left-arm option is always nice so Ashish Nehra is the other quick I’ve gone for He’s been around a long time offers great consistency the ability to swing the new ball just enough and his ability to nail what he needs to nail at the right times under pressure is probably what sets him aside from most others” For all the latest Sports News download Indian

birth for Euro final (Source: Reuters) Top News Wales have no reason to fear Portugal in their Euro 2016 semi-final on Wednesday and despite key players missing coach Chris Coleman said he had complete faith in their replacements to do the job His team have been one of the big surprises of the tournament topping a group including neighbours England dumping out one of the favourites Belgium in the quarter-finals and progressing to highs not seen enjoyed by the Welsh side since 1958 “It’s new territory You will either be blinded by the lights and crawl back to where you came from or have belief in yourself and stand up for your identity” Coleman told reporters at his side’s training camp in Brittany on Sunday “You spend too much time thinking about what you don’t want to happen rather than concentrating on what you want to happen The message has been no fear there’s nothing to be afraid of “We screamed long and hard to be at a major tournament and as soon as we got here the handcuffs were off We’re not restricted” Coleman’s biggest selection dilemma will be seeing how to replace influential midfielder Aaron Ramsey – who has scored one goal and contributed four assists – and centre back Ben Davies Both miss the match in Lyon through suspension but Coleman was adamant that he had enough strength in depth team togetherness and tactical ability to overcome the setback “They are two outstanding players but it’s not like we haven’t been without them before” he said “Our biggest gripe before the tournament was that we couldn’t get our strongest team on pitch for enough consecutive games “I have no worries about whoever steps in I don’t worry about these players because they know the drill what’s expected of them the game plan that won’t change” Coleman sought to play down the hype on the potential rivalry between his talisman Gareth Bale who has scored three goals at Euro 2016 and Portuguese captain Cristiano Ronaldo who unlike his Real Madrid team mate has yet to really impress during the tournament Coleman said focusing too much on Ronaldo would be detrimental and a distraction to his team because Portugal’s top scorer was capable of doing “something special” at any moment “But we have one in our team” he said referring to Bale “It balances itself out We will just concentrate on what we’re good at That’s our identity we’re strong on

dramatically upended the music industry and allowed you to carry “1000 songs in your pocket” If the iPod changed the way we listened to music the company’s own dramatic transformation in fortunes from a struggling laggard to one of the world’s most valuable businesses is also entwined with music Back then the Napster-hit recording industry was reeling from declining CD sales and a spike in online piracy Apple’s iTunes was the first alternative that promised to slow the industry’s revenue haemorrhage by making it possible for users to purchase individual songs for a small fee Its spectacular success earned Apple the grudging gratitude of record labels which could at last take a break from their unsurprisingly unpopular tactic of suing college kids and grandmothers for copyright violation — at least until the company’s dominant position inevitably bred resentment In the decade since high-speed internet has once again changed how we listen to music Instead of carrying our extensive libraries around in our pockets we simply access the “cloud” that magical place where all our songs photos and videos are stored This transformation was so quick that Apple the market leader till just the other day was left behind streaming services like Spotify and internet radio stations like Pandora Now the company is making another stab at regaining its prominence with Apple Music a streaming service But despite the company’s formidable reputation and its staggering pile of cash this foray might be coming too late The music industry though should applaud Apple’s entry A stuttering recovery

shelf life” she added For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Ila Patnaik | Published: October 24 2013 4:17 am Related News Before the next wave of volatilityemerging markets must set their house in order The recent slowdown in GDP growth and some of its causes are not unique to India While a lot of our problems appear homegrownit is interesting to note that several emerging economies are facing similar downturns This sudden deceleration of growth in emerging markets (EMs) poses challenges for the world economy EMs had contributed significantly to global growth and a slowdown in these economies could result in a downturn for the world economy Global growth forecasts have been cut primarily due to the sluggish growth in emerging economies This slowdown was the focus of many a debate at the annual meetings of the IMF and the World Bank earlier this month Almost all EMs are now showing a decline in GDP growth Furthermost forecasts for EM growth have been cut The discussion suggested that emerging economies will face three major challenges in the coming months: high volatility of capital flowsa cyclical downturn and structural problems The high volatility of capital flows in recent times stems from the anticipation of decisions that are yet to be taken by the US Fed Everyone understands that the Fed must cut back on its asset purchases Indeedit is argued that they are no longer necessaryas the balance sheet of the Fed is large enough to support much greater credit growth if there was enough demand for it The money multiplier has fallen sharply While there is an increase in reserve money growththe corresponding growth in money supplywhich happens only when there is demand for credit and lending by banksis much lower Howeverthe asset purchase programme of the Fed has also become a signalling device As long as the Fed is buying assetspeople believe that long-term interest rates in the US will remain low Ben Bernankes carefully drafted May 22 communicationthat the Fed must now start devising a strategy to reduce its asset purchaseswas read by jittery financial markets as an announcement of the programmes withdrawal The nervousness of the marketsand the perception that the Feds purchases must be reduced and eventually stopped has created a tense situation Every tiny bit of information about the US economy has the potential to induce the entry or exit of waves of capital in the US The impact on EMs has been far greater and more sudden than what was initially expected Not only is there no prior example of such unconventional monetary policythe inflows and outflows of capital from EMs are not symmetric When the Fed purchases startedthe inflow into EMs was slower and less dramatic than the outflow has been now Some observers believe that the May-July drama was only a trailer of what is to come when the Fed actually starts tapering its bond purchases Market participants and investors seem to be bracing themselves for higher volatility Others believe that the markets have already factored in the effect of a US tapering the corrections that were to be made in investor portfolios and EM currencies have already been made Policy-makersespecially among emerging economiesprefer to think that the worstin terms of market volatilityis over This is understandableas there is a limited menu of possible responses The most common opinion appears to be that before the next wave of volatility hits financial marketsthat isbefore the US Fed starts talking about tapering againemerging economies with weak macroeconomic fundamentals should set their house in order As of nowEMs have got some respite This is mainly due to two reasons FirstUS unemployment numbers showed a reduction in labour participationsuggesting that the labour market is not healthyso a reduction in the unemployment rate cannot be taken literally Secondthe fiscal contraction in the US has slowed down the expected pace of recovery Setting ones house in order is not easyespecially since growth is expected to be slower For exampleeven though slower growth is forecastboth for cyclical and structural reasonsthe IMF has suggested that EMs undertake fiscal consolidation Indiafor exampleoverdid its fiscal stimulus in 2009 and 2010 and a correction for this would entail fiscal contraction This couldhoweverimpact emerging economies growth rates adversely On the monetary policy frontwhile the IMF did not say that emerging economies should maintain a tight monetary stance in response to higher US interest ratesit did recommend that countries with high inflationary expectations put in place a sound framework for monetary policy Howeverin many countriessuch as Indiathis would mean a tightening of monetary policy A framework may not be credible or capable of pulling down inflationary expectations unless such a tightening were undertaken But tighter monetary policy could mean a further contraction in output In the aftermath of the recent volatilitytwo distinct sets of countries seem to have emerged Firstthose that have sound macroeconomic fundamentals small fiscal and current account deficitsand low inflation Secondthose that had witnessed fiscal expansions and inflation that was higher than world inflation in recent years Countries like Mexico and Chile appear to be well prepared for the taperingwith sound fiscal and monetary policies in placebut they have slowed down for structural reasons They need to undertake structural reforms Other EMs have to counter the impact of tighter fiscal and monetary policies Structural reforms like building infrastructurecreating greater labour flexibility and a good business environment can increase growth But such long-term reforms are a political process In democratic countries like IndiaTurkey and Brazilthey require building political consensus and are not quick and easy The only instrument that might help is currency flexibility An assessment of currency mismatches suggests that emerging economies are better placed and more resilient today than in the past Countries that allow currency depreciation might be in a better position to take advantage of the pick-up in the US economy and world trade than those that do not For emerging economies like Indiathe coming months might witness slower growthhigher volatilitycontractionary fiscal policy and monetary tightening The writerRBI Chair Professor at the NIPFPDelhiis a consulting editor for The Indian Express and non-resident scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIn a climate where freedom of speech and expression is under attack on numerous fronts and with even the judiciary refusing to stand up for freedom of speech the draft Protection of Speech and Reputation Bill 2016 is a welcome development in expanding this important right As part of an initiative being spearheaded by Tathagatha Satpathy a Member of Parliament belonging to the Biju Janata Dal it’s a noble effort to re-assert the right to free speech in India The bill is currently in the draft stage and is open to public comments for further refinement and fine-tuning Representational image AFP The bill itself aims to re-balance the relationship between the freedom of speech and the right to reputation Following the judgment of the Supreme Court upholding the constitutional validity of Section 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code 1860 which criminalises defamation in India many felt that the balance had tilted dangerously away from the freedom of speech and towards the protection of reputation Even though the Constitution recognises that the freedom of speech may be limited through “reasonable restrictions” in the interests of preventing defamation the Supreme Court’s judgment went even further and seemed to make freedom of speech itself subordinate to the right to reputation Crucially the court failed to reason why even if reputation is a sound basis to limit freedom of speech defamation should necessarily be criminalised for these purposes as a “reasonable restriction” permitted under the Constitution This state of affairs of its own making does not seem to have dawned on the court as it wonders why persons in power continue to harass critics with criminal defamation cases The bill cuts through this flawed and incoherent reasoning of the Supreme Court and aims to create a legal framework that maintains a healthy balance; recognising both the primacy of freedom of speech and the need to have sufficient protection for an individual’s reputation as well To this effect the bill does two very important things: one it provides a reasonable procedure for protecting reputation without damaging freedom of speech and two it decriminalises defamation altogether by deleting Sections 499 to 502 of the IPC The two important changes are related to each other Criminal defamation is resorted to by parties simply because the regular civil remedy is not considered effective This is not a reflection of the substantive law of defamation alone It is a reflection of India’s civil justice system and the enormous delays and backlog that plague it The weaknesses in the justice system have meant that few people resort to this to claim damages for a legal injury suffered by them This results in the threat of damages not being a sufficient deterrent to those who cause the injury nor is there a promise of effective remedy to those who suffer such legal injury It is therefore easier for an aggrieved party to use the blunt instrument of criminal defamation with the threat of imprisonment and fine for the alleged defamer even if it doesn’t mean that there will be damages paid out to her for such defamation Criminal defamation law as it stands though is also open to serious abuse It has been used and continues to be used to harass political opposition and have a chilling effect on the criticism of the government and those in positions of power Initially intended to prevent people from taking the law into their own hands (usually by challenging other to duels unto death in public) criminal defamation law has now become a favoured tool to punish a critic through the process rather than actually deter defamers The bill goes some distance in addressing these two inter-linked issues —providing an effective remedy for civil defamation and removing the offence of criminal defamation as an offence from the IPC The bill cuts through this flawed and incoherent reasoning of the Supreme Court and aims to create a legal framework that maintains a healthy balance; recognising both the primacy of freedom of speech and the need to have sufficient protection for an individual’s reputation as well Being a bill introduced in Parliament it of course has its limitations For one it can’t undertake the kind of wholescale reform needed to restore public confidence in the civil justice system In as much as the bill attempts to provide an effective civil remedy for defamation it can’t make sure that the system as a whole responds to the needs of a litigant for quick and effective justice It does limit the scope for abuse for instance by demanding that a suit for defamation be filed in an area where the defendant resides or carries on a business or profession However this requires district court judges in India to be alert to the possibility of abuse where a case has been deliberately filed in a court lacking jurisdiction —something that overburdened and ill-equipped judges have not been able to do in other cases However this criticism must not detract from the key innovations and changes proposed in the bill They are much needed and should be seriously considered by Parliament for passage Though the history of successfully passed private members’ bills is not very encouraging nonetheless given that this is a bill which will have important implications for members of the political class who are likely to face criminal defamation from their political opponents one hopes that it will be taken up seriously for debate and discussion if not ultimate passage as a law The author is a Senior Resident Fellow at the Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy and views
