Dividends are back! I’d buy this bargain FTSE 100 stock for long-term income

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Dividends are back! I’d buy this bargain FTSE 100 stock for long-term income Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The stock market crash is throwing up bargain FTSE 100 stocks everywhere you look. Unfortunately for income seekers, roughly half the index has stopped paying dividends due to the coronavirus pandemic and recession.Today, there’s light on the horizon. The UK’s largest commercial property development and investment company Land Securities Group (LSE: LAND) has announced it will reinstate dividends later this year. This bargain-priced FTSE 100 company says its tenants are now reopening premises and welcoming customers back.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…This is another step out of lockdown, with the government further easing restrictions tomorrow. Investors should be cautiously celebrating.Check out the Land Securities share priceToday, Landsec issued a promising update on June rent collection, and its share price is up around 2% as a result. All of its shopping centres and outlets are now open. On 30 June, some 79% of its retail units were trading, while 16 of its 18 leisure parks were also open. Landsec management said footfall levels are “encouraging”. They’re around 60% of last year levels, but like-for-like store sales have increased by 80%. As seen elsewhere in the retail industry, customers are venturing out less, but spending more when they do. You may find other FTSE 100 retail bargain stocks as a result.The £4.33bn’s group’s estate of high-quality offices is also open, with occupancy levels rising as customers return to work. Only its Accor-managed hotels remain closed, but with a phased opening planned over the next three months.I’d buy this bargain FTSE 100 stockOn 24 June, £122m of rent fell due. Of this, 60% was paid within five working days, which is well down from 94% last year. The group is holding “supportive and constructive dialogue” with tenants who’ve fallen behind. It has allocated £9m of “concessions”, out of its £80bn rent relief war chest. The pandemic will still hurt Land Securities.Today’s update is a positive sign the economy is creaking back into life, and I’m hoping the process should accelerate. Just as long as we don’t get further lockdowns.Management also said Landsec is “financially robust”. At 30 June, adjusted net debt stood at £3.92bn, down marginally from £3.93bn at 31 March. It has £1.2bn of cash and available facilities, boosting my faith in this FTSE 100 stock’s bargain potential. Today’s upbeat update is encouraging, coming so shortly after shopping centre management and development company INTU went into administration.I’m calling this FTSE 100 share a bargain because its share price is still down 40% since the start of the pandemic. That leaves it trading at 10.3 times earnings, if you can rely on traditional valuation metrics such as the P/E ratio. I’m not sure you can though.The board now intends to reinstate payments following its half-yearly results announcement on 10 November. If you’re looking for long-term income, keep a close watch on this bargain FTSE 100 stock. I think it’s on the way back.Here’s another to consider right now… 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.

Hargreaves Lansdown investors are buying ITM Power shares. Here’s what I’m doing

first_img Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” ITM Power (LSE: ITM) shares seem to be out of favour. The stock has fallen over 20% in one month. But despite this, the share price is still up more than 115% during the past 12 months.I’d still buy ITM power shares. My view appears to be echoed by users of Hargreaves Lansdown platform. The stock was the most purchased share there last week.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…Why have ITM Power shares fallen?Last year, the share price had a phenomenal run. But at some point the steam was going to run out of the rally. And this is exactly what has happened. ITM Power shares have seen a correction. In other words, the price has declined by more than 10%.I think there’s bags of potential for this company and this was recognised by other investors too. But I think reality has set in. While the firm is generating some revenue, it’s still loss-making and the route to profitability is likely to take some time. Also, the smart investors who put money into ITM Power shares early may have decided to bank some profits. I don’t blame them, as I’d do the same.Bull caseAt its half-year results in January, the AIM-listed company demonstrated it has a strong backlog and pipeline of contracts. I think this is great for ITM Power’s credibility and positioning as an expert in its field.It also managed to successfully raise money to boost its technology and manufacturing strategies. This should help the company in the long term as it now has the funding in place to accelerate growth. It won’t be smooth sailing, but it’s taking a step in the right direction.ITM Power is also developing strategic partnerships with the likes of Linde and Snam. These are large corporations. The fact that these firms have actively decided to partner with a smaller player, I think will boost ITM Power’s reputation.ITM MotiveLast week, the firm announced that it’s moving ITM Motive into a separate legal entity. It’s worth noting that this segment of the business owns and operates 12 Hydrogen Refuelling Stations (HRS). Of these, eight are currently commissioned with a further four in build or funded. It’s the largest HRS operator in the UK.ITM Motive will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of ITM Power. This separation makes complete sense to me. It will provide a transparent legal structure for this new firm to scale up. Again it highlights to me that there is significant growth potential for this new entity.Bear caseAs I said, ITM Power is generating some sales but it’s still making a loss. In 2020, it generated approximately £3m in revenue but delivered a pre-tax loss of £30m. It has highlighted that the road to profitability will take time, which may impact the shares.The stock has been volatile and this could continue. Especially in a company where there are high expectations for growth. Investors like me need to be aware of this before they dip their toes in. This is why I’d only invest what I could afford to lose. The stock is certainly not for the faint-hearted.Despite these concerns, I think there’s a lot of growth potential in ITM Power and I’d used this dip to snap up some shares.

The task was to remodel an existing single floor residence, part of a semi-detached house, and to build another floor. Building regulations demand to leave 3m to the limits, even to the line that divides the plot and the building in the middle, so only part of the building could be lifted up.Save this picture!© Dirk MayerOur aim was to create something that is still part of the original building, especially because the other half would not be altered, but also to go one step further, giving the new part a contemporary look and distinguish it from the old.Save this picture!© Dirk MayerThe solution was very simple, it takes the original shape of the roof one floor higher, creating a large balancing terrace that would give it a quite dynamic look. A material change in this floor from white render to cork panels and the long horizontal windows underline the impression of dynamics.Save this picture!Ground floor planThe balancing balcony provides shade for the wide openings and shelter for the outside sitting area. The village of Caniço, on Madeira Island, has a very mild climate all year around so a sheltered outside place, connected to the garden, is where family life is focused around.Save this picture!© Dirk MayerThe lower floor is conceived as an open space for kitchen, dining area and lounge area, where you can enjoy the light, the green garden and the ocean view between the trees and neighboring houses.An additional bedroom and bathroom complete this floor, but the parents suite is located upstairs, where you have a wide ocean view and a sheltered, private balcony.Save this picture!First floor planThe ground floor was planned to be mostly maintained, simply freed up of some interior walls, and only the top floor was to be constructed in light steel framing, but as the original structure proved to be very weak, the whole house was rebuilt in light steel framing.Save this picture!© Dirk MayerProject gallerySee allShow lessShortlist Revealed for 2019 Dulwich Pavilion in LondonArchitecture NewsCollège Maxime Javelly / Céline Teddé & Jérôme Apack architectesSelected Projects Share PEC House / Mayer & SeldersSave this projectSavePEC House / Mayer & Selders Area:  210 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Caniço, Portugal Houses PEC House / Mayer & Selders ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895714/pec-house-mayer-and-selders-architecture Clipboard Photographer:  Dirk Mayer Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Architects: Mayer & Selders Area Area of this architecture project Portugal Save this picture!© Dirk Mayer+ 23Curated by Pedro Vada Sharecenter_img ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895714/pec-house-mayer-and-selders-architecture Clipboard Photographs 2017 Year:  “COPY” Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMayer & SeldersOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCaniçoPortugalPublished on June 05, 2018Cite: “PEC House / Mayer & Selders” [Casa PEC / Mayer & Selders] 05 Jun 2018.

‘Let’s put our heads together’- Clare’s Cllr Crowe

first_imgEmail Advertisement WhatsApp THERE are many stark challenges facing the Mid-West region and the best way to tackle them is through a partnership approach, according to Clare councillor, Cathal Crowe. He told the Limerick Post: “The elected members of Clare County Council will continue to promote, encourage and facilitate the development of the University of Limerick’s north campus, and our council is presently acting as the lead authority in the the route selection stages of the proposed Limerick Northern Distributor road.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “It is also in the interests of both counties to have a well resourced and supported Shannon airport”.Turning to a more localised effort, he had this to say:“I think it would be both healthy and productive to have a number of joint meetings between the Killaloe Electoral Area councillors and Limerick City East Ward councillors.“Our administrative boundaries may be drawn at the mid-point of Athlunkard bridge, but this is most certainly not where the issues for our constituents begin and end.“It is vital that we sit down to discuss areas of mutual interest such as traffic, road maintenance, planning matters, etc. The boundary line between the counties must be accepted and respected for what it is and where it lies but the delivery of service across this boundary should be seamless”.Two years ago, he pointed out, Clare County Council combined efforts with Limerick City Council to install a new hand-railing on the Athlunkard bridge.“If heads are put together I think a lot can be achieved.“I am hopeful that my motion will be passed at this week’s meeting and if our colleagues in Limerick city are agreeable to it, we could have our first joint area meeting this Autumn”.

Among those rental investors, 62% said that they have rented back to current occupants of occupied homes.”Most of the investors who responded to Auction’s survey were small-scale—87% had purchased five or fewer investment homes in 2020. The majority, 78%, purchased properties that were within their own metro. Of the renter-occupied properties that went into foreclosure, 62% bought at auction were re-rented to the existing occupants.“A transparent and democratized distressed-property marketplace attracts a diverse set of mostly local real estate investors who are committed to doing good in the communities where they invest,” said Jason Allnutt, Auction.com CEO. “Not surprisingly, these local buyers are the best option for responsibly returning distressed properties to retail buyers and renters. Sixty-two percent of our buyers report they have successfully avoided an eviction by keeping the occupants in the homes as renters.”Auction reports 40% of the respondents said they believe their local market is overvalued with a correction possible, but 74% think home prices will continue to rise by at least 3% in 2021.Almost all, 93%, buyers expect their 2021 acquisitions to increase or remain the same compared to their 2020 acquisitions. Creating that new source of income and building wealth ranked as the top investing motivations for most buyers, Auction reported, but a combined 13% of buyers said “improving homes and neighborhoods or investing back into the community” was their top motivation for investing. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Previous: Brian Montgomery & Colleagues Launch Gate House Strategies Next: The Sky’s the Limit With SFR Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agolast_img read more

Oil Search announces capital and operating expenditure reductions

first_imgThe company said that the forecast capital expenditure going forward from April has been reduced from $400 – $500m to between $200m and $300m Oil Search is an oil and gas exploration and development company. (Credit: Pixabay/skeeze) In light of the recent material decline in oil prices and global circumstances, Oil Search has undertaken a comprehensive review of its planned activities in 2020. The objective of the review has been to minimise forward expenditure and maximise liquidity, while protecting the Company’s base value and preserving the option to deliver our world class growth projects when market conditions improve.Apart from work programmes required to ensure ongoing reliable and safe operations, all discretionary activities within the Company’s control that have not yet commenced are being suspended or deferred. Where possible, some projects that have commenced have also been suspended safely. This action will result in a material reduction in investment expenditure in 2020, from US$710 – 845 million as previously disclosed, to US$440 – 530 million. Forecast capital expenditure going forward from April has been reduced from US$400 – 500 million to between US$200 million and US$300 million.Oil Search has also commenced a systematic review of all operating and corporate overhead costs, aimed at delivering a sustainable, material reduction in these costs without compromising the ongoing and safe production of oil, condensate and gas in PNG. Deferrals of non-essential capital projects will flow through to material reductions in direct support and operating costs. Analysis and implementation of the flow-on impact on operating costs is currently underway and revised guidance on operating costs will be provided once the associated restructuring costs have been fully quantified.In addition to managing for the low oil price environment, Oil Search has prepared comprehensive business continuity plans and is well advanced in its preparations to adjust its work practices and exposures, to reduce the risk of disruption to reliable and safe operations from COVID-19.Dr Keiran Wulff, Oil Search’s Managing Director said:“The recent dramatic fall in oil prices to below US$40/bbl, due to the impact of COVID-19 on oil demand, combined with concerns about a material increase in oil production following the recent failed OPEC+ meeting on further production cuts, has led to a major drop in oil and gas company share prices. It is unclear how long these events and the consequent oil price and share market volatility will last.While Oil Search is fortunate to have world class assets, these unprecedented times require us to take immediate and decisive steps to position us for a potentially extended period of lower oil prices and business uncertainty.We have consequently implemented a halt in all discretionary spend, which will reduce capital expenditure significantly in 2020. While it is premature to forecast budgets for 2021, if lower oil prices persist, Oil Search will focus on protecting the value of our core assets and limiting any other activities. We are also well advanced in preparations to rapidly reduce our operating and corporate costs, for immediate implementation.Since early in the year, the Company has been evaluating the potential impact of COVID-19 across our business. We have established a multi-location, cross-functional COVID-19 Task Force which has prepared business continuity and emergency response plans to manage the impact of COVID19 on our workforce, operations and workplace environments. This has included identifying business critical personnel and projects and having layered plans for implementation.We have recently been made aware of an individual in PNG who has developed flu-like symptoms after returning from field break. This individual works for a landowner company that currently supplies services to one of our camps. In accordance with World Health Organisation advice and the Company’s protocols, the individual and his close contacts have been isolated and the relevant authorities notified. The individuals will remain in quarantine until they are fully recovered and cleared to return to work. The plans that the Company has made to minimise the impacts of Coronavirus onthe Company’s activities are now being implemented. The health and safety of our employees and contractor community remains our highest priority.The early systematic preparation for managing the impact of COVID-19 on our business and the measures we are now implementing to minimise capital spend, operating costs and corporate expenses, will assist the Company with the financial flexibility to ride through a potentially extended period of global disruption and enhance Oil Search’s resilience in a lower oil price environment.We are confident that these measures, combined with our balance sheet structure and liquidity, will position the Company for success despite the challenges currently facing the global energy industry.” Source: Company Press Releaselast_img read more

Register online to receive a login: https://apply.gse.harvard.edu/register/military2018 U.S. Army Cpl. Arthur Briggs Church, 32, was killed on a French battlefield during an attack on Germany’s fortified Hindenburg Line on Sept. 28, 1918.Marine Lt. Carleton Burr, 26, was leading his men in an advance on the battlefields of Picardie, France, when he was struck and killed by shrapnel on Sept. 20, 1918.And in the skies over Chamery, France, on Bastille Day 1918, Lt. Quentin Roosevelt, the 20-year-old son of President Theodore Roosevelt, was shot down and killed in a dogfight with a flock of German planes.Church, Burr, and Roosevelt, who all died in the final months of World War I, are just three of the 372 students, alumni and faculty whose names are engraved on the granite walls of the Memorial Room in Harvard’s Memorial Church.The Great War left an enduring legacy on the Harvard campus. The Memorial Church, its bell, and the Memorial Room are all testaments to the sense of loss the University community felt in its wake.“The Memorial Room commemorates the Harvard men who died in World War I, and to whom the church is dedicated,” said Edward Elwyn Jones, Gund University organist and choirmaster. “The Memorial Church holds such a prominent place on Harvard’s campus, and it is first a church dedicated to peace, but also to sacrifice. I think it is wonderful for us, especially this year, to be mindful of that sacrifice.”,Over the next several weeks, Memorial Church will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the war with a series of performances featuring the music and composers of the era. The performances, which will all take place in the church sanctuary, are free and open to the public.Friday, noon — Uppsala University Chamber Ensemble musicians and French pianist Paul André Bempéchat present a concert of chamber music by Swedish romantic composers, including Wilhelm Peterson-Berger, Dag Wirén, André Chini, Christer Hermansson, and Gunnar de Frumerie.Saturday, 7:30 p.m. — Massachusetts vocalists Deborah Selig and David McFerrin and pianist Clifton J. Nobel present “Angel Spirits: Music of World War I.”Sunday, 4 p.m. — Harvard University Choir Concert, “Remembering,” featuring the music of Lili Boulanger and Charles Hubert Hastings Parry and the U.S. premiere of a new choral piece, “In Flanders Fields,” by Gareth Treseder.Friday, 9 a.m.‒noon; Saturday, 8 a.m.‒7:30 p.m.; Sunday, 1 p.m.‒4 p.m. — Exhibition of the wartime etchings of Alphege Brewer.Dec 4, 8 p.m. — The Tactus Ensemble, “Songs of Farewell.”The concerts offer a teaching moment about the war’s impact. The carnage decimated a generation, including its artists. The English composer Parry, for example, lost many of his former students, Jones said.“I talk a certain amount to our students about the history of the war itself, but also the artistic endeavors and reactions to the war,” he said. “Many artists and musicians fought during the war and many lost their lives. But the ones who were left behind were deeply affected by it. Parry’s reactions to the war are very visceral and we hear that in the music.” That deep sense of loss and sacrifice also permeates the Memorial Church, which was dedicated in 1932 to honor those in the Harvard community killed in World War I.Inscribed at the top of the wall of the Memorial Room are the words of Harvard President A. Lawrence Lowell, who also donated the church’s bell: “While a bright future beckoned, they freely gave their lives and fondest hopes for us and our allies that we might learn from them courage in peace to spend our lives making a better world for others.”The Memorial Church recognizes the service and sacrifice of all Harvard veterans, especially during Veterans Day weekend. The walls of the sanctuary are dedicated to more than 1,000 members of the Harvard community who died in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.,The Rev. Jonathan L. Walton, Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church, said every time he steps into the church sanctuary and the Memorial Room he is reminded of the words of the Rev. Phillips Brooks, the longtime rector of Boston’s Trinity Church and namesake of Harvard’s Phillips Brooks House.“‘How carefully most men creep into nameless graves, when occasionally one or two forget themselves into immortality,’ Brooks wrote,” Walton said. “Etched on the walls are the names of men and women who were able to live a life that was worth living because they found a cause and a purpose greater than themselves. We continue to honor their service, their sacrifice, and their memory.”On Sunday, members of Harvard ROTC will speak at the Faith & Life Forum at 9:30 a.m. in the Buttrick Room. The Commemoration of Benefactors and of the War Dead will take place during the Sunday Service beginning at 11 a.m. Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval L. Patrick will preach. The church will also be open on Veterans Day from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. Morning Prayers, which begin at 8:30 a.m., will feature U.S. Army veteran Richard Martinez ’21.last_img read more

Oscar Winner Christopher Walken Will Star in NBC’s Peter Pan Live!

first_img View Comments An Oscar winner for The Deer Hunter, Walken is no stranger to bringing Broadway musicals to the screen, having starred in this summer’s Clint Eastwood-helmed Jersey Boys and the film adaptation of Hairspray (produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who will reunite with Walken for Peter Pan). Walken’s  many films include Stand Up Guys, A Late Quartet and Seven Psychopaths. The actor began his career in the 1950s as a Broadway dancer. He received Tony nods for his performances in The Dead and A Behanding in Spokane. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt confirmed at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour that the titular role will be played by a woman, as it is traditionally performed. The network honcho revealed that Frozen star Kristen Bell was at one point considered for Peter, saying, “she was interested but she’s doing House of Lies. It’s tricky finding the right person in the schedule that we need but we’re actually close.” “I started my career in musicals,” Walken said in a statement, “and it’s wonderful after all this time, at this point in my career, to be in this classic musical I watched as a child and to work with Neil Meron and Craig Zadan again after Hairspray. It’s a chance to put on my tap shoes again.”center_img A Great White Way family classic, Peter Pan premiered on October 20, 1954 at the Winter Garden Theatre, featuring a book by J.M. Barrie, music by Mark “Moose” Charlap and Jule Style, lyrics by Carolyn Leigh, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, direction and choreography by Jerome Robbins and Mary Martin in the lead role of the boy who won’t grow up. NBC has broadcast the musical live a total of three times previously: in 1955 (when it reached 65 million viewers), 1956 and 1960. The musical has been revived five times on Broadway since. Who’s the swiniest swine in the world? Oscar winner and Tony nominee Christopher Walken will headline NBC’s previously announced Peter Pan Live!. Walken will take on the role of the self-proclaimed “greatest villain of all time,” Captain Hook. The Peacock Network’s follow-up to the highly rated Sound of Music Live!, which starred Carrie Underwood along with many Broadway favorites, Pan will broadcast on December 4. Additional casting will be revealed at a later date.last_img read more

Long Island Muslims, Faith Leaders Condemn Paris Attacks

first_imgThe US takes in nearly 70,000 refugees annually, according to the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement. And since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the United States has resettled 784,000 refugees, according to the independent nonprofit Migration Policy Institute. Out of that number, only three “have been arrested for planning terrorist activities—and it is worth noting two were not planning an attack in the United States and the plans of the third were barely credible,” the organization said. ISIS’ meteoric rise in the last few years has many concerned that radicalized individuals overseas could come to the United States and carry out attacks similar to the one that shocked Paris on Friday. Sixty-eight alleged ISIS sympathizers have been arrested within the United States—80 percent of whom were home-grown citizens, according to The Center on National Security at Fordham Law. The charges range from providing material support to conspiracy to kill to fraud, immigration violations, and drug crimes. Three of those arrested were categorized as refugees or asylum seekers. Humanitarian aid groups believe seeking refugee status in the US is actually the most difficult way of entering the country. “Refugees are the most security vetted population who come to the United States,” the New York-based International Rescue Committee said in a statement Tuesday. “Security screenings are rigorous and involve the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and the Department of Defense.” Similar statements were made by a bevy of aid groups. But the fear of further terror attacks has made Obama’s Syrian refugee program one of the most politically-charged initiatives of his presidency, with some expressing utter shock that the White House would even consider allowing Syrians in. For others, opening up the United States’ gates to 10,000 refugees, they say, is the best way to respond to bloodthirsty criminals hoping western nations forsake their values out of fear. “It is clear what we oppose, it is clear what we denounce, it is also clear what we promote,” Sniffen, of the Cathedral of Incarnation in Garden City, said Friday. “We promote communities of diversity, of love, and of faith commitments of every persuasion rooted in love of God and love of neighbor.” Even so, a poll conducted in 1939 found that 61 percent of those polled were not in favor of allowing 10,000 refugee children into the United States. Ben Carson, who is also seeking the GOP nomination, compared some Syrian refugees to “rabid dogs” before later softening his tone. Rep. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush suggested the United States should focus on protecting Christians over Muslims, and more than two-dozen governors have opposed President Obama’s plan to bring in 10,000 Syrian refugees who have been fleeing unconscionable slaughters, rapes, barbaric beheadings, and poverty, as their home country continues to be soaked in blood. Denouncing extremism and xenophobia on Friday was Dr. Isma Chaudhry, president of the Islamic Center of Long Island, who said all faiths should stand together as a united front. “This is not a social or a political calling,” she said, “for us Muslims this is a religious calling, to stand together in solidarity with all faiths against injustice, against terrorism, against bloodshed.” Chaudhry argued that the fissure of fear being created only empowers terror groups like ISIS. “I urge you to think and reflect,” she implored. “This is a small group of self-proclaimed people, a small group of criminals, who in the name of Islam have done barbaric acts of violence.”“We as Muslims strongly condemn these un-Islamic actions,” Chaudry continued. “This is not Islam. ISIS is not Islam. Muslims are not violent, barbaric people. This is a small group of criminals and we, by dividing ourselves, are making them big.” RELATED: No Syrian Refugee “Tent City” Coming to Long Island, Local Aid Group InsistsImam Ibrahim Negm, a visiting scholar and preacher, said Muslims worldwide denounce the slayings in Paris. “Islam is a faith that promotes peace, that brings about stability to societies,” he told about two dozen onlookers, “not the distorted image of Islam that are propagated by these radical few which is creating terror and havoc throughout the world.” Dr. Faroque Khan, an ICLI co-founder and board member, said ISIS’s self-declared caliphate was illegitimate. “There is nothing Islamic about them, and it’s an illegal state,” he said. Speakers also took exception with recent comments and actions by elected officials who question the logic of permitting refugees entrance into the United States, despite claims from resettlement agencies that anyone seeking refugee status goes through multi-layered security as part of a rigorous process that takes 18 to 24 months to complete. On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted on a bill to further strengthen refugee security protocols, a measure the White House has threatened to veto. Rev. Lukens said denying destitute refugees is not only un-American but it goes against God’s teachings. “All people of faith and goodwill have mourned these past weeks, the terrible atrocities that were committed in Paris, Beirut, Nigeria and in Baghdad, atrocities that were committed by people whose creed is terror and hatred and whose aim is to sow fear,” Lukens said. “And in the face of that, people of faith and goodwill of every faith have a decision to make about how we will move on—whether we will grant these terrorists victory by letting our own fear diminish us as people, diminish our faith, turn us against one another, cause us to turn our back on the innocent in their hour of need. “The teaching(s) of the Gospel are clear and unequivocal,” he continued. “We are our brother and our sister’s keeper and we are taught as Christians that Christ himself is found among those who are called the least of these—the stranger, the outcast, the refugee—and that we will be judged by how we behaved toward these people at times precisely like these.”The Very Rev’d Michael Sniffen, dean of the Cathedral of Incarnation in Garden City, said acts of terror should inspire people of all faiths to follow their hearts, rather than be consumed by fear and selfishness. “In this time when our brothers and sisters across this world flee acts of terrorism and genocide,” Sniffen said, “we who stand in a privileged nation such as this cannot walk by on the road and call ourselves faithful. We must stop what we’re doing and look at our neighbor in need and pick them up and treat them as we would treat our own child.” For groups like ISIS, Khan said, it’s their hope that nations like the US to deny refugees access. “This xenophobia is not what American values are all about…it’s a violation of the spirit of our constitution, and most importantly plays into the strategy of ISIS,” he said, “which is trying to create a religious divide and anti-refugee backlash so the billion-plus Muslims will feel alienated and some will turn to extremism. If so, then our leaders are following a script and a trap put forth by ISIS and are becoming their best recruiters.” Recent polls have found that the majority of Americans do not support Obama’s plan to bring in 10,000 refugees, just a tiny fraction of the overall 12 million displaced Syrians—and 4 million who have fled, half of whom are children. The United States has a long history of accepting refugees, though the program has historically been unpopular, even going back to World War II. According to a recently uncovered poll conducted in 1938, nearly 70 percent of US respondents opposed German and Austrian refugees—the majority of whom were Jews displaced by the Holocaust—entering the US. The poll was conducted in the early years following the Great Depression, so many Americans may have been consumed by economic concerns. center_img Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Standing on the steps of an archway leading to a sun-splashed courtyard at the Islamic Center of Long Island on Friday, about a dozen leaders from various faiths delivered an impassioned condemnation of last week’s terror attacks in Paris, and voiced a striking repudiation of the so-called Islamic State and the vile atrocities the group commits in the name of Islam. Armed only with Biblical verses, Koranic teachings, heavy hearts, and signs that proclaimed “ISIS Does Not Represent Islam,” Christians, Jews, and Muslims gathered outside the Westbury mosque to denounce extremism and call on America—a country of immigrants—to welcome war-ravaged Syrians fleeing the 4-year-old civil war back home. “Let us show these disciples of death, these murdering ISIS thugs, how a truly great nation and her people behave in the face of terror. Islam is not our enemy,” said Rev. Mark Lukens, chair of The Interfaith Alliance of Long Island. “Fear is our enemy. Hatred is our enemy. And we defeat that enemy with faith, with courage, with unity and with love.” Their remarks came exactly one week after terrorists killed 129 people in Paris and injured more than 300 in coordinated strikes on cafes, restaurants, and a packed music hall.The attacks have prompted an outpouring of support for Parisians, but has also fueled what many consider anti-Islamic statements from US presidential candidates out of fear that members of the self-declared Islamic State could use the historic flow of refugees from Syria as cover to enter the United States. Donald Trump, vying for the Republican nomination, has said he’d consider shutting down mosques and implementing a database of Muslims in America, before suggesting the latter wasn’t his idea. last_img read more

Twitter, Facebook and YouTube Survived Election Day. More Tests Loom.

first_imgOAKLAND, Calif. — For months, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube prepared to clamp down on misinformation on Election Day.On Tuesday, most of their plans went off without a hitch. The social platforms added labels to misleading posts by President Trump and notified their users that there was no immediate outcome to the presidential race. On television, news anchors even cited fact-checks similar to those made by Twitter and Facebook.- Advertisement – Then came Wednesday. With ballots still being counted and the absence of a clear result, the flow of misinformation shifted away from seeding doubts about the vote to false claims of victory. Twitter rapidly labeled several tweets by Mr. Trump over the course of the day as being misleading about the result of his race, and also did the same to tweets from others in his circle, such as Eric Trump and the White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany. And Facebook and YouTube used their home pages to show people accurate information about the election.The actions reinforced how even a smooth performance on Election Day did not mean that the social media companies could relax, fighting a relentless flow of toxic content. In fact, the biggest tests for Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are still looming, misinformation researchers said, as false narratives may surge until a final result in the presidential race is certified. “What we actually saw on Election Day from the companies is that they were extremely responsive and faster than they’ve ever been,” said Graham Brookie, the director of the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab. But now, he said, misinformation was solely focused on the results and undermining them.- Advertisement – “Platforms need to quickly expand their efforts before the country is plunged into further chaos and confusion,” he said. “It is a democratic emergency.” On Tuesday night, Facebook had to do just that. Shortly after Mr. Trump posted about the election’s being stolen from him, Facebook officials added labels to his posts. The labels noted that “no winner of the presidential election had been projected.”After the polls closed, Facebook also sent users a notification that if they were waiting to vote at a polling place, they could still vote if they were already standing in line.On Wednesday, Facebook added more labels to new posts from Mr. Trump, checking his claims by noting that “as expected, election results will take longer this year.” On Tuesday, as Americans voted across the country, falsehoods about broken voting machines and biased poll workers popped up repeatedly. But the companies weren’t tested until Mr. Trump — with early results showing how tight the race was — posted on Twitter and Facebook just before 1 a.m. Eastern time to baselessly lash out at the electoral process. “They are trying to STEAL the Election,” Mr. Trump posted on the sites, without being specific about who he meant.Twitter moved quickly, hiding Mr. Trump’s inaccurate tweet behind a label that cautioned people that the claim was “disputed” and “might be misleading about an election or other civic process.” Twitter, which had started labeling Mr. Trump’s tweets for the first time in May, also restricted users’ ability to like and share the post.On Wednesday morning, Twitter added more labels to posts from Mr. Trump. In one, he tweeted that his early leads in Democratic states “started to magically disappear.” In another message, Mr. Trump said unnamed people were working to make his lead in the battleground state of Pennsylvania “disappear.”Twitter also applied other labels to posts that falsely asserted victory. One was added to a post by Ben Wikler, head of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, in which he asserted prematurely that Joseph R. Biden Jr. had won the state. The Associated Press and other news outlets later called Wisconsin for Mr. Biden, though Mr. Trump called for a recount.On Wednesday afternoon, Twitter also affixed context to tweets from Eric Trump, one of Mr. Trump’s sons, and Ms. McEnany when they preemptively claimed that Mr. Trump had won in Pennsylvania, even though the race there had not been called. The company also fact-checked other assertions from Mr. Trump claiming victory in several battleground states such as North Carolina and Georgia, where the race has not been called, and restricted his false statements about voter fraud from being shared.“As votes are still being counted across the country, our teams continue to take enforcement action on tweets that prematurely declare victory or contain misleading information about the election broadly,” Twitter said. But the site did encounter a problem early on Tuesday night when several YouTube channels, one with more than a million subscribers, said they were livestreaming election results. What the live streams actually showed was a graphic of a projection of an election outcome with Mr. Biden leading. They were also among the first results that appeared when users searched for election results.After media reports pointed out the issue, YouTube removed the video streams, citing its policy prohibiting spam, deceptive practices and scams.On Wednesday, One America News Network, a conservative cable news network with nearly a million subscribers on YouTube, also posted a video commentary to the site claiming that Mr. Trump had already won the election and that Democrats were “tossing Republican ballots, harvesting fake ballots and delaying results” to cause confusion. The video has been viewed more than 280,000 times.Farshad Shadloo, a YouTube spokesman, said the video did not violate the company’s policy regarding misleading claims about voting. He said the video carried a label that the election results were not final. YouTube added that it had removed ads from the video because it did not allow creators to make money off content that undermined “confidence in elections with demonstrably false information.”Alex Stamos, director of the Stanford Internet Observatory, said the tech companies still had a fight ahead against election misinformation, but were prepared for it.“There will always be a long tail of disinformation, but it will become less impactful,” he said. “They are still working, for sure, and will try to maintain this staffing level and focus until the outcome is generally accepted.”But Fadi Quran, campaign director at Avaaz, a progressive nonprofit that tracks misinformation, said Facebook, Twitter and YouTube needed to do more.center_img “You have a hyperfocused audience and a moment in time where there is a huge amount of uncertainty, and bad actors can use that opportunistically,” he said.Twitter said it was continuing to monitor for misinformation. Facebook said, “Our work isn’t done — we’ll stay vigilant and promote reliable information on Facebook as votes continue to be counted.” YouTube said it also was on alert for “election-related content” in the coming days.The companies had all braced for a chaotic Election Day, working to avoid a repeat of 2016, when their platforms were misused by Russians to spread divisive disinformation. In recent months, the companies had rolled out numerous anti-misinformation measures, including suspending or banning political ads, slowing down the flow of information and highlighting accurate information and context. – Advertisement – Updated Nov. 4, 2020, 5:23 p.m. ET Unlike Twitter, Facebook did not restrict users from sharing or commenting on Mr. Trump’s posts. But it was the first time Facebook had used such labels, part of the company’s plan to add context to posts about the election. A spokesman said the company “planned and prepared for these scenarios and built the essential systems and tools.”YouTube, which is not used regularly by Mr. Trump, faced fewer high-profile problems than Twitter and Facebook. All YouTube videos about election results included a label that said the election might not be over and linked to a Google page with results from The Associated Press. Facebook took a more cautious approach. Mark Zuckerberg, its chief executive, has said he has no desire to fact-check the president or other political figures because he believes in free speech. Yet to prevent itself from being misused in the election, Facebook said it would couch premature claims of victory with a notification that the election had yet to be called for a candidate, if necessary. – Advertisement –last_img read more

WHO lowers reported Marburg toll in Angola

first_img Also yesterday, Latina Prensa (Latin American News Agency) quoted an Angolan official as saying the disease has killed more than 400 people. The story said Health Minister Sebastiao Veloso told reporters “that the infection still inflicts fatalities every five or six days, and that the death toll already exceeds 400 in four months, affecting seven provinces.” See also: MSF said the epidemic “seems to be grinding to a halt,” with only a few new cases confirmed in the past few weeks. “MSF has ended its emergency intervention and handed over its activities,” the article said. After a review of data on the epidemic, the Angolan Ministry of Health reported a total of 351 cases, 312 of them fatal, the WHO said today. In a Jun 17 update, the WHO had listed the Ministry of Health’s tally as 422 cases with 356 deaths. The WHO offered no explanation for the change in the numbers. However, the WHO statement said the outbreak response team in Angola “is currently following up 64 contacts in Uige Province,” where the vast majority of cases have occurred. “The team continues to receive and investigate alerts to potential cases,” the WHO said. “Clinical specimens from alerts are being transported to the Canadian National Microbiology Laboratory.” Jun 17 WHO report on Marburg epidemichttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2005_06_17/en/index.html The story says that 16 staff members in Uige’s main hospital died of Marburg as a result of inadequate infection control measures. The MSF article describes the difficulties that medical workers faced as they worked to control the epidemic by quickly burying bodies and isolating patients while trying not to alienate the population. People suspected of being infected were often reluctant to go to health facilities for diagnosis and possible isolation, mainly because there is no cure for the disease. The medical aid group Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF), or Doctors without Borders, in an article published online yesterday, put the size of the outbreak at 391 cases with 350 deaths. Dr. Armand Sprecher, a public health specialist who has dealt with both Ebola fever and Marburg, called Marburg “even scarier” than Ebola. “A person can feel a bit weak and look slightly ill but drop dead the next day,” he was quoted as saying. Jul 13 WHO statement on Marburg epidemichttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2005_07_13/en/index.html Jul 13, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – The latest report from the World Health Organization (WHO) on the Marburg hemorrhagic fever epidemic in Angola gives significantly lower numbers of cases and deaths than previous reports. Meanwhile, still other numbers have been reported by other sources this week. The report says Marburg is hard to detect, with symptoms—high fever, diarrhea, and vomiting—that resemble those of other common tropical diseases such as malaria. “The disease is not as dramatic and ‘gory’ as media reports portray it to be,” the story says.last_img read more

​UK DB schemes ‘holding too much’ in growth assets, illiquids

first_imgUK defined benefit (DB) schemes have reduced investment risk in the last nine years as they have matured, but for some sponsors this process has still not gone far enough, according to a new report.Research by consultancy Barnett Waddingham showed that, as FTSE 350 DB pension schemes have matured, asset allocation has ratcheted down to 31% growth assets in 2019 – from 51% in 2010.However, schemes approaching buyout in the next five years had an average of 27% allocated to growth assets, which exposed companies to unnecessary risk, the firm said.Nick Griggs, head of corporate consulting at the firm, said: “As schemes have matured, a general de-risking has been inevitable, but corporates need to seriously consider whether they have gone far enough. “Especially for those close to the endgame, being proactive with your strategy is crucial in ensuring the level of investment risk matches the agreed objective, whether that’s an insurance company buyout or a run-off.”The consultancy said it would expect to see companies aiming for a buyout within two years typically holding 10-15% or less in growth assets. Those that were two to five years away should hold no more than 15-25% – although the recommendation depended on the individual scheme.UK DB schemes’ funding positions were still under threat from falls in long-term interest rates, according to the consultancy.“With economic and political uncertainty driving global bond yields lower, as investors look to move into safe haven assets, schemes can do more to neutralise the impact of this and reduce the volatility of funding levels,” it said.Some firms looking to buyout in the next five years were also holding illiquid assets, with 4% of their assets on average being property investments, the firm said.“These take time to dispose of, and are unlikely to be accepted by insurers as part of a premium payment for buyout,” it warned.Barnett Waddingham also said overexposure to growth assets – particularly illiquid investments – could cause cashflow issues. It said 90% of schemes were already cashflow negative, and one in eight FTSE 350 schemes had a cashflow burden above 5% of total assets.UK private sector pension deficit hits two-year highThe combined funding shortfall of UK private sector DB schemes hit £163bn (€182.6bn) at the end August, according to the Pension Protection Fund (PPF), as stock market volatility increased and bond yields fell sharply.According to the PPF’s 7800 Index, which tracks the net funding position of UK DB schemes, the figure marked the biggest deficit recorded since May 2017, when the deficit was £168bn.Total assets increased during August by 1.5%, from £1,730bn to £1,756bn, but aggregate liabilities rose by 5.4%, from £1,821bn to £1,919bn.Data from Mercer released last week showed the aggregate funding position of DB funds linked to FTSE 350 companies declined, from a £51bn deficit to £67bn.Funding position of UK private sector pension schemesChart MakerSion Cole, Head of UK fiduciary business at BlackRock, said: “Whether a scheme is in surplus or deficit will largely have decided how schemes have fared in August.“Generally speaking, better-funded schemes have more hedging and are taking less investment risk so will have coped better with the market turbulence in August. Conversely, their underfunded counterparts who need to chase returns will have been hit hardest.” Nick Reevelast_img read more

Barbados leads the way in fertility healthcare for US patients

first_img Sharing is caring! Tweet Share Share Flag of Barbados. Image via: flagsofnet.comBRIDGETOWN, Barbados — Barbados Fertility Centre (BFC) will be featured in the Vanguard documentary ‘Under the knife abroad’, which airs on Monday 14 November 9:00pm PST/8:00pm CT on Current TV. The documentary looks at the future of US healthcare and how many Americans are forced to leave their homes for affordable treatment outside of the US. BFC is a JCI accredited centre of excellence for IVF treatment and is considered to be one of the leaders in the field of reproductive medicine with success rates as high as 71% for women under 35. These success rates are attributed to the cutting edge technology employed by the medical team combined with the relaxing option of undergoing treatment on the Caribbean island of Barbados, which is only 3 hours from Miami and 4 hours from New York with daily direct flights. With treatment costs less than half at BFC of what US couples are paying for IVF at home. The airing of the documentary also coincides with the launch of The Fertility App, available from the App store, which has been developed by BFC to support every woman who has made the life changing decision to start a family covering everything from ovulation through to a positive pregnancy test. Dr Juliet Skinner, head clinician at BFC said. “We pride ourselves on offering our patients the latest in technology to help them conceive, and are delighted to be able to share our knowledge with women across the globe via The Fertility App.” Infertility affects one in six couples worldwide, and if a couple tries to conceive for more than 12 months without success then they need to seek medical advice. The app has been designed to help women conceive with an ovulation calculator, which is connected to the calendar. This then syncs with the users device to send them alerts and reminders. The user can add appointments and medications and there is a full medical glossary explaining all the medical terms associated with both male and female fertility. There is also a full description of pre conception supplements and medications and their effects on the body when trying to conceive. BFC have also compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions from their patients and there is a healthy lifestyle section to improve a couple’s chance of success. Within the Fertility App there is the opportunity to connect with BFC on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates from the medical team, they can also watch videos on the BFC YouTube channel and connect with other people trying for a baby in the patient support forum. If a couple have had no success after 12 months and need medical assistance they can also connect directly with the BFC medical team from within the app and request a consultation with Dr Skinner or go directly to the BFC website for more information.

Fourth of July

first_imgIt is the birthday of our nation.  Traditionally, this has always been a day to enjoy picnics and watch baseball.  Thank heavens some things still follow tradition.  Although if you find anyone playing a double header today, it will be because of necessity and not a planned event.With million dollar contracts and agents, baseball players truly like the idea of independence.  When they were making little money, they played whatever management said.  Now it is written in baseball rules that you can only play so many games in so many days.  As you can tell, I am not exactly in favor of this.Don’t let the fact that your favorite team will only play one game today, because the 4th of July is about freedom and family.  Have a great day with your family!last_img read more

Wisconsin leads nation in most statistical categories en route to unbeaten 1st half

first_imgWith a pair of convincing wins over St. Cloud State this weekend, head coach Mark Johnson and his top-ranked Wisconsin women’s hockey team finished the first half of their season virtually unblemished. The 18-0-2 Badgers can now take a few weeks off, relax and prepare for a daunting second half of the season that includes tough away series at top-five rivals Minnesota and Minnesota-Duluth.St. Cloud came to the Kohl Center ranked third in the WCHA with plenty of momentum courtesy of a five-game winning streak. The Badgers, however, were sporting an 18-game unbeaten streak that included eight wins over top 10 opponents.Wisconsin’s 7-0 and 6-2 wins over the Huskies finalized a near-perfect first half of the season, and gave Wisconsin some breathing room atop the rankings of a very competitive WCHA.Statistically, the Badgers are leading the nation in nearly every offensive and defensive category. Wisconsin is allowing a slight 0.94 goals a contest while scoring 5.26 goals a game, leading the nation in both categories.Individually, Wisconsin has plenty of representation in the national leaderboard. Six Badgers rank in the top 20 nationally in scoring. Sophomore Hilary Knight leads the nation in points, with 22 goals and 17 assists. Senior captain Erika Lawler is second nationally in points, with 32, and first in assists with 23. Also in the top 20 nationally for points are freshman Brooke Ammerman (30), junior Meghan Duggan (28), junior Jasmine Giles (24) and senior Angie Keseley (23).Senior goaltender Jessie Vetter leads the nation with an impressive 0.952 save percentage. Vetter also leads all net-minders with 17 wins and a slim 0.827 goals against average.Johnson noted how valuable Vetter has been to the team’s success, adding that strong defensive play has also helped limit opposing offenses.“She has been a stonewall back there,” Johnson said following Wisconsin’s 6-2 win on Saturday. “The people in front of her are playing well, they are playing very responsible within our own end. If we have breakdowns or the other team creates opportunities, [Vetter] has been very comfortable and she can make the saves. If we have kids that are committed to playing hard in their own end, it makes it very difficult for the other team to score goals.”The Badgers have been powered by a well-blended mix of productive freshman and veterans who dedicated themselves following last spring’s crushing loss to Minnesota-Duluth in the national championship. Johnson likes where his team is at this juncture of the season, but notes that there still is plenty of work to be done.“We are in good position, but we have 20 games still when we come back,” Lawler said. “I would not have predicted us being in this position in September. You have to complement the players, and I did after the game. They committed themselves last spring, they trained hard over the summer, put themselves in a position to get a good start and they have kept the momentum building, and building.”Also touching on the fruits of the team’s efforts was Lawler.“It is a tremendous thing that we have the best record in program history,” Lawler said. “I think we are all very proud of ourselves, because we worked for it, and it definitely did not come easy. ”Lawler, the Badgers’ pint-sized senior captain and emotional leader, sees her team as one that enjoys playing together and has great cohesion on all fronts.“A huge contribution to how successful we have been is how well we get along on and off the ice,” Lawler said. “Everyone seems to have a really good work ethic. We have found good chemistry on all four lines. I could go down the line with all my teammates and talk about how each is contributing to our success, whether they play a lot or not. Everyone is contributing in some way or another. ”last_img read more

USC notches road win over rival UCLA

first_imgUSC secured an outright Pac-10 championship Saturday  following a 4-3 win over crosstown rival UCLA — its first road win against the Bruins since 2004.“They are our biggest rivals,” said freshman Emilio Gomez. “It’s like you have to win. You have to be ready. Winning this here is amazing. I’m so proud of our team.”After winning the doubles point with victories at the No. 1 and No. 3 spots, things became increasingly difficult for the Trojans (21-2, 6-0).On the front courts, only junior Steve Johnson was able to walk away with the win, beating Daniel Kosakowski 6-4, 6-1, while junior Daniel Nguyen and senior Jaak Poldma lost, 4-6, 7-6.After losing his first set, Poldma lost the match for the first time this season in a grueling back-and-forth second set, which he ultimately lost to Amit Inbar.Playing at No. 6 for the Trojans was senior Peter Lucassen, who won his first set but lost his second and third sets 6-4 and 6-1, eventually falling to UCLA’s Maxime Tabatruong. Freshmen Ray Sarmiento and Gomez were at No. 4 and No. 5, and both lost their first sets.Sarmiento would make a decisive comeback in his second set, beating Adrien Puget 6-4. Gomez, too, was able to extend the match to three sets against Holden Seguso. “We were down and with Ray we came back,” Gomez said.Sarmiento ended his match first, winning 2-6, 6-4, 6-2. With two matches remaining, USC led 3-2.All eyes were on Gomez, who was up 4-3 in the third, but lost a game to the Bruins’ Seguso to even things up 4-4. The crowd went wild, swapping rivalry chants as Gomez secured a 5-4 edge after several grueling deuce points were played. He eventually prevailed 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.“At the beginning, I was uncomfortable on the court,” Gomez said. “I kept fighting though. At first I was more defensive, and then I attacked.”last_img read more

Nola drives in 4, Mariners snap Dodgers streak with 6-4 win

first_img FOLLOW US Last Updated: 20th August, 2020 11:26 IST Nola Drives In 4, Mariners Snap Dodgers Streak With 6-4 Win When he was younger and probably a little more stubborn, Seattle’s Taijuan Walker would have struggled to make a major in-game adjustment that called for abandoning the original game plan SUBSCRIBE TO US When he was younger and probably a little more stubborn, Seattle’s Taijuan Walker would have struggled to make a major in-game adjustment that called for abandoning the original game plan.With the Los Angeles Dodgers sitting on Walker’s fastball on Wednesday night and clubbing it for three early home runs, there had to be a change.“I faced the Dodgers a lot when I was at Arizona and my attack plan was mostly fastball, changeup to them,” Walker said. “But this year I have a curveball now and a pretty good slider, and the confidence I have with them let me be able to go out there and make that adjustment and really trust my pitches.”Walker overcame the early long-ball issues to throw seven strong innings, Austin Nola hit a three-run homer run and had four RBIs, and the Mariners beat Los Angeles 6-4, snapping the Dodgers’ seven-game win streak.Nola had an RBI single in the first inning and added his third home run of the season in the third as the Mariners snapped a seven-game skid. Dylan Moore added a solo home run in the sixth inning.Walker (2-2) was outstanding once he stopped giving up home runs. Max Muncy, Joc Pederson and Cody Bellinger hit solo homers and Walker seemed destined for an early exit.But after Bellinger’s home run in the third inning gave the Dodgers a 3-1 lead, Walker settled down. He found success with his curveball and retired 13 of the final 14 batters he faced. The only batter to reach came on an error.Walker allowed just four hits and struck out eight.“The last time that Taijuan was a Mariner here a few years ago, he couldn’t have made that adjustment mid-game,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. “He’s learned. He went to some changeups, a lot of curveballs, got the cutter going, and it really slowed things down, slowed them down in the batter’s box.”Justin Turner had an RBI single in the eighth off reliever Anthony Misiewicz. Taylor Williams loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth after walking Mookie Betts, but struck out Corey Seager for his fourth save.Dodgers starter Julio Urías didn’t make it out of the second inning. Urías labored to record five outs and was pulled by manager Dave Roberts with two outs in the second. Seattle tagged reliever Dennis Santana (1-1) for four runs in the third inning, including Nola’s long ball. Seattle sent nine batters to the plate.“He’ll pitch his next turn. Just got to continue to be better,” Roberts said of Urías. “The last three starts, it’s been that first inning he hasn’t really looked sharp. I don’t know if it’s the pregame prep, whether it’s too much early, not enough early to get ready for that first inning. We’ll talk about it, but we’ve got to be ready from pitch one.”EARLY EXITRoberts, Muncy and hitting coach Robert Van Scoyoc were ejected in the sixth inning by home plate umpire Mark Ripperger. Van Scoyoc and Roberts had been barking from the dugout about balls and strikes for much of the game. Van Scoyoc was ejected first, followed by Roberts during Muncy’s at-bat. Muncy had some words for Ripperger and was tossed after striking out.“Robert didn’t agree with a couple of the calls and got run, and for me, I came out to question why would he throw out our guy and then I got tossed,” Roberts said.TRAINER’S ROOMRookie Seattle 1B Evan White was removed from the game in the third inning after fouling a pitch off his left knee. White was down for a few minutes before walking off on his own. X-rays were negative and the team said he was day-to-day.ROSTER MOVESThe Dodgers recalled LHP Victor González ahead of the series against Seattle and optioned RHP Tony Gonsolin. It’s the second stint this season for González, who appeared in one game last month.The Mariners made a flurry of moves, highlighted by designating for assignment struggling DH Daniel Vogelbach, who was hitting just .094. Vogelbach was an All-Star selection a year ago. The Mariners also optioned right-hander Art Warren and outrighted right-hander Bryan Shaw to its alternate training site.REMEMBERING GORTONThe Mariners held a moment of silence before the game for former U.S. Sen. Slade Gorton, who died on Wednesday at 92. Gorton was a huge advocate for baseball in Seattle and had a major hand in the Mariners arrival in 1977 as an expansion franchise after the Pilots left for Milwaukee following the 1969 season. He later helped facilitate the sale of the team to local ownership that kept the team in Seattle in the 1990s.“Probably no single person was as important to the history of Major League Baseball in Seattle and the Mariners as Slade,” Mariners chairman John Stanton said.UP NEXTDodgers: LHP Clayton Kershaw (2-1, 2.65) threw seven innings and allowed one run in his last start against the Angels. Kershaw is 3-0 all-time against Seattle.Mariners: LHP Yusei Kikuchi (0-1, 5.28) is scheduled to return to the rotation after being scratched from his last start due to neck spasms. Kikuchi’s last start came on Aug. 7 when he gave up four runs in 5 2/3 innings against Colorado.Image credits: AP First Published: 20th August, 2020 11:26 IST Associated Press Television News center_img Written By COMMENT LIVE TV WATCH US LIVElast_img read more

Hundreds of Linden CIIP workers issued termination letters

first_imgBY UTAMU BELLEOver 200 workers under the Community Infrastructure Improvement Project (CIIP) in Linden have been issued termination letters, to facilitate the rehiring of about 50 less workers under a “superior contract”.This newspaper understands that approximately 300 persons from both Wismar and Mackenzie, Linden were initially on the programme, however under the superior contract which is expected to take shape sometime next month, only 250 would be hired. This has created some amount of disagreement by some workers, who are at odds with the decision.Speaking on the issue, Linden Town Clerk Jenella Bowen explained that the programme which is conducted through the municipality of the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) has undergone some restructuring, based on agreement with the Ministry of Communities.Region 10 Chairman Renis Morian“There were several discussions between the Ministry of Communities and the CIIP project. PS (Permanent Secretary) is aware and all the other players from the ministry, as it relates to this project. A decision was made where we would have 250 persons working instead of 300 persons…we would have started with Mackenzie, having termination contracts for the persons on Mackenzie. So what happens is that the entire CIIP programme will be restructured based on the Council’s agreement. Everyone will be terminated and then people will be rehired. There were 300 persons on, but now we have to bring that figure down to 250”, the Town Clerk indicated.She added that the decision was based on an agreement with the Ministry of Communities, which was embraced by the Council.Bowen further stated that some workers had agreed to uplift their termination letters and that all were terminated to facilitate the rehiring process in both “fairness and justice”. The workers, she noted, were given a one month notice of their termination.Bowen said workers under the programme will continue working 4 hours per day, for 16 days in this month for the usual payment of $12,500. However, come September 5, when the re-established work process commences, the work time will be 8 hours per day, for eight days and the payment increased to $25,000. NIS would also be deducted, according to Bowen.Linden Town Clerk Jenella Bowen“So instead of working 16 days it is 8 days, 8 hours a day…I think that the system can work. I think that it’s for the betterment of the community. I will embrace it. Many of the persons from what I know are single parents. Many of them mothers, and for that I am grateful…and I know the Council will also embrace the project”, the town clerk said.Regional Chairman wants letters rescindedMeanwhile, Region 10 (Upper Demerara- Berbice) Chairman Renis Morian has called for the letters of termination to be rescinded, since he noted it has created a lot of uncertainty and uneasiness among the workers who depend on the project for a living. He said the decision was not made in “fairness” and proper consultation should have been made to prepare the workers for the changes to come.“You have people in Region 10 who are unemployed, who are doing the CIIP work. So you have a contract that for whatever reason, you’re pulling this contract because it is alleged that you have framed a superior contract. You’re pulling this contract now and there’s a long uncertainty period. I’m saying, pull back the letters. When you’re ready with your new contracts, call the people…I’m saying to the Minister of Communities and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Communities that those letters should be withdrawn…you don’t just pull a contract and leave a man hanging in the air and you know a man was earning…it has to be discussed with them and they agree…”, Morian stated.The regional chairman said he hopes that good sense will prevail regarding the issue. He recently stated that he was given all assurance by the minister that this will be done.last_img read more

Barbie and Bratz dolls slug it out over popularity claims

first_img“They tried this last year,” said Mattel spokeswoman Lauren Dougherty, “but Barbie is still the number one fashion theme doll for the year in the United States and worldwide.” So who is the real princess? Neither, according to Alison Marek, the managing editor of TD monthly, a specialty toy trade magazine. “As far as (my readers) are concerned, neither Bratz or Barbie is the number one doll because they don’t want their kids playing with them,” she said. “A lot of parents would prefer that their kids find something that reflects their own peer group.” But the competition is healthy. “If somebody is breathing down your neck,” Marek said, “you need to think of the next thing.” [email protected] (818) 713-3735 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Let the catfight begin. If the toy industry is one big popularity contest, Barbie and Bratz are wrestling over the queen’s crown. Both claimed Monday to be the fashionable doll that has won the hearts – and purses – of little girls. The dueling claims are the latest in a drawn-out battle between the two doll makers that has included lawsuits, counter-lawsuits and backhanded gossip about the dolls. Both Mattel, which makes Barbie, and MGA Entertainment, which makes Bratz, can say they are number one by touting different statistics from the NPD Group, a market research firm. If you look at sales from the last three months of 2006 in the United States, Bratz reigns. After trailing in Barbie’s taller, thinner shadow for years, Bratz elbowed Barbie out of the way with 34 percent of sales in the fourth quarter, said Isaac Larian, head of MGA in Van Nuys. Mattel declined to disclose Barbie’s market share for the same period. “For the whole year they were just a little bit higher than us,” Larian said. “For the past seven years we have not been able to beat them. But we finally beat them.” Larian expects Bratz’s lead to last because January sales of the dolls increased by double digits. But Bratz’s lead disappears if you step back and examine sales from the entire year. Then, Barbie is the favorite. last_img read more

Perfect score not enough on ‘Dancing’

first_imgBut in a second dance, he earned a score of just 28, bringing his total score for the week to 58. Even though it was just two points less than perfect, it was the lowest of the week. Judges’ scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which couple is eliminated. The three remaining celebrity dancers – Laila Ali, Joey Fatone and Apolo Anton Ohno – will begin the competition’s final round on Monday, when they will perform a dance chosen by the judges as well as a freestyle dance. The new “Dancing With the Stars” champion will be named on May 22. – Asssociated Press He earned a perfect score and glowing praise from the judges. But that wasn’t enough to keep Ian Ziering on “Dancing With the Stars.” The 43-year-old actor was booted from the ABC dance-off Tuesday during the competition’s semifinal round. “We’re in it to win it,” the “Beverly Hills 90210” alumnus said before his performance Monday. “This week you’re going to see a whole new Ian Ziering on the dance floor.” Judge Len Goodman seemed to think so, praising Ziering’s tango as “your best dance ever” and calling him “technically … the soundest of all the celebrity dancers.” He earned a perfect score of 30. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

49ers add a veteran quarterback to roster

Daryl ‘Nightmare’ Naidu: scaring off Durban’s bullies

first_img“I don’t know if it’s my intimidating looks or the good work I do but kids look up to me,” says Daryl “Nightmare” Naidu. (Image: Daryl Naidu)Daryl “The Nightmare” Naidu is the blueprint of a wrestler – a ball of aggression with ripped legs and toned arms – but he blows away every pigeonholed idea you may have. At almost two metres tall and as broad as heaven’s expanse, the first impression Naidu creates is one of explosive anger. His ringside antics give you only a cursory glance into the chaotic world of a man who has earned renown as a wrestler and, more importantly, as a community youth worker.It’s not his intimidating demeanour that allows him to connect with the kids he helps. He welcomes anyone to his wrestling academy, based at the Chatsworth Youth Centre, and encourages kids to join him in volunteering at the other outreach projects at the centre. He is successful because he talks to kids in a language they understand. “Humour … humour … and making them laugh when I talk to them. Kids are looking for someone they can relate to and not some stern guy in a suit and tie.” “I am a walking billboard for everything I believe in,” Daryl Nightmare Naidu.

Springing surprises of Jharkhand

first_imgTribal dances add colour and vigour to any local festivalDelightful trails that wind their way through pear orchards or lead to the shores of the serenely rippling lake await you in Jharkhand. If you’re adventurous enough to go deep into the forests, you may stumble on one of the leaf huts in which the local adivasis live, tucked away in the deepest shadow of the sal trees. And if you’re even luckier, you may tread in the footsteps of a tiger that has climbed the plateau. Satyajit Ray was so charmed by the forests that he shot parts of Aranyer Din Ratri here. Jharkhand, in the last five years, has wandered experimentally down new trails of many kinds.Metro mixEating options are everincreasing in the capitalUrban Jharkhand has always been developing in cities like Jamshedpur, but now Ranchi is catching up. The city has the Big Bazar shopping mall at its heart with all the convenience of electronics on the first floor, furniture on the second and fashions of the third. There’s a two-screen multiplex, Eylex showing the latest blockbusters and the Sujata Miniplex, that has been recently upgraded. The City Centre Mall is being built with Singapore consultancy and when complete, will include Ranchi’s first five-star hotel.Culture curryVisit tribal artists in Ranchi to pick up souvenirsIt isn’t all about modern shopping. Jharkhand is working on how best to display its traditions too. The Hotwar Museum is as recent as September 2009 and it sprawls over 10,000 sqm at the mega sports complex in Ranchi. Its air-conditioned interior houses an impressive collection of artefacts from the pre-historic and Harappan periods, along with recent historic finds excavated at Khukhragarh in the Ranchi district. Among must-sees are the prehistoric hand tools, monoliths and painted and unpainted pottery, some of them moulded between 1100-350 BC, the period in which Vyasa wrote the Mahabharata. There are also over a hundred 12th-century sculptures of Yakshas and Yakshinis found during an excavation at Ichagarh in East Singbhum.Another museum, this time focussing on Jharkhand’s tribals is to be found at the Sanskriti Centre in Hazaribagh. The Centre is housed in a heritage building set in the middle of six acres of lush orchards and trees. The museum houses a detailed archaeological record of the Hazaribagh region, ranging from the Lower Palaeolithic to the present, while the art gallery showcases 15 styles of painting in the Khovar and Sohrai schools with over 300 works of art on display.Tribal women artists exhibit their work at the gallery and, all in all, the Centre is a celebration of the colour and vibrancy of tribal life. In the last five years it has also worked around to developing its website so that it can appeal to a worldwide audience.Arty talesThe Hotwar Museum, a must visit, sprawls over 10,000 sqmHundreds of families of Amadubi village near Jamshedpur in Jharkhand have been illustrating local folk dances and tribal legends as well as other religious tales through the unique paintings that they have been making for centuries. What makes the paintings unique is the brightness and appeal of the illustrations that are made from different base media and colours ground from local herbs and stones. The tradition of paintings has been kept alive through the Guru-Shishya teaching method. The State Government is training the villagers to make their work more commercially sustainable.Tribal lifeAlong with art and culture, adivasi tourism is also developing fast. The Santhals are one of the oldest tribes in the country and then there are the Asurs, the Lohars and the Mundas. Some of them weave baskets, some are skilled blacksmiths forging intricate ornaments from iron, while others work with the bamboo. Thanks to a new tourism initiative many of these villages have opened up to tourists so that it is possible to sample their unspoilt way of life.Mine aheadOpt for the speedy way on the waters of JharkhandJharkhand has always been known for its mineral wealth, but there is an initiative to use the mines for something more than just minerals. Mining tourism is a concept that has been booming in Australia and South Africa and steps are being taken to make areas like the Regrappa mines and the North Karmpura mines in Ranchi district suitable for mining tourism. Hindustan Copper Ltd (HCL) and Central Coalfields Ltd (CCL) are consulting with the Jharkhand Tourism authorities and offering their mines for the experience.Festive spiritBig Bazar shopping mall in Ranchi is a huge step towards modernismThe Baba Baidyanath Vishva Mahotsav was kick-started in 2008 and ‘rollicking’ is how everyone describes the three-day affair. A blend of religion and adventure tourism, it gives visitors a chance to explore Deoghar’s temples and after the blessings try their hand at kayaking, snorkelling and yachting in 18 specially chosen lakes and rivers. Performers are brought in from the eastern states during August and there are also tribal dances and folk songs adding their rhythm.Adventure tourism is coming to Jharkhand in a big way promising to make life even more of an adventure in the coming days.

Indiana Ends Liberty Dream, 66-51

first_imgNEW YORK — Tamika Catchings has made a habit of playing her best with the most at stake in her final postseason run.She scored 14 points and made key defensive plays to help Indiana beat the New York Liberty 66-51 on Sept. 29 in the decisive Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, advancing the Fever to the WNBA championship.They will face the Lynx in the finals that begin Oct. 4. in Minnesota.“This is awesome,” Catchings said. “If you had asked me before the season if I’d be sitting right here, we’re going to try, I don’t know. To be sitting here means a lot for the organization, for my team.”Catchings, who announced she’s retiring at the end of next season, has willed her team to victories. The Fever won the final two games in the opening round against Chicago, then, against New York, the Fever swept the final two contests, rallying from an 18-point deficit in the second quarter in Game 2 to force the game.“Nobody thought we’d win the first series,” Catchings said. “No one thought we’d win this round. No one thinks we’ll win the finals. We’re not done yet.”Indiana is back in the finals for the first time since 2012 — the only season the Fever won the championship.“It’s special to be back there,” said Fever coach Stephanie White, who is the first rookie WNBA coach to lead a team to the finals.The Fever improved to 8-2 in elimination games in the past four seasons and Catchings is a huge reason why. She averaged 21.2 points and 8.8 rebounds in the first nine of those games.“Just watching her play, you know you want to do what you can to help her win,” said Marissa Coleman, who scored 15 points — hitting five 3-pointers. “She always makes the play when we need it most.”Catchings and Indiana looked ready to cruise to the finals, building an 18-point lead in the third quarter. Coleman hit three 3-pointers in the third quarter to help the Fever build their huge lead after Indiana held a 33-22 halftime advantage.New York wasn’t done. Epiphanny Prince, who was scoreless in the first half, hit a 3-pointer to start a 12-3 run to close the period and bring New York within nine heading to the fourth.The Liberty hit three 3s during that spurt, capped by Candice Wiggins’ shot that made it 49-40 with 28 seconds left in the quarter and brought the loud crowd to its feet.As he’s done at so many Knicks games, Spike Lee was leading the charge from the sideline, trying to spur the Liberty to a monumental rally. The Liberty kept it going to start the fourth as Wiggins scored the first five points of the period to get New York within 49-45.But Catchings made two free throws that started a 10-0 run and restored the double-digit lead, essentially sealing the victory for the Fever.“We came close, just couldn’t make the plays when we needed to,” said Tina Charles, who finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds to lead New York.New York was trying to make its first appearance in the WNBA Finals since 2002. The Liberty have been to the championship four times and lost each one.Charles finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds to lead New York, which had the best record in franchise history and was the top seed in the Eastern Conference before falling short in the playoffs. Wiggins led New York with 15 points. (DOUG FEINBERG, AP Basketball Writer) TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Akani Simbine wins 100m gold in London Diamond League

first_imgSouth African Akani Simbine pulled off something of a surprise in the London Diamond League 100 metres on Saturday, holding off local hope Zharnel Hughes and former world champion Yohan Blake to come home in 9.93 seconds.Hughes had clocked an impressive 9.96 in the heats, despite easing up and running into a slight headwind but after an early stumble he was always trailing in the final, posting 9.95.Blake, the joint-second fastest man of all time with his 9.69 set in 2012, is getting back towards his best and continued his good season with third in 9.97 as the top five all broke 10 seconds.Simbini has been knocking at the door for a few years, with fifth places in the Olympics and world championships and gold at the Commonwealth Games and African championships and now looks equipped to challenge the best of the United States at this year’s worlds in Doha in September.”I’m really happy with the time. I came here to make sure I got the win to build confidence and I came away with a season’s best,” he said.”It’s about getting through the races and winning them so by the time I get to world champs and I’m facing the rest of the world I’ll be ready and the confidence will be there and I’ll be able to believe in the work I’ve done.”Olympic champion Elaine Thompson was a convincing winner of the women’s 200m in 22.13, holding off fast-finishing Marie-Josee Ta Lou (22.36) and Britain’s Beth Dobbin, who was delighted with a personal best of 22.50 having had to miss the race a year ago to work.advertisementThere was more to cheer for home fans as Laura Muir delivered a dominant front-running display and a blistering last lap to win the 1500m in 3:58.25. “That’s probably close to my 400m PB,” the Scot said of the 57.54 burn up.Jamaica’s Danielle Williams fired out the fastest time of the year in winning the 100m hurdles in 12.32 – a shade behind the world record set by American Kendra Harrision in the same meeting three years ago.Also Read | Hima Das wins 5th gold of the month after successful return to 400mlast_img read more

NAT: 2Q 2015 Encouraging for Tanker Market

first_imgzoom In the first quarter of 2015 Nordic American Tankers (NAT) benefited from both a strong Suezmax tanker market and a significant drop in the oil price that had a positive effect on the tanker industry.Cashflow from operations was USD 50 million, compared with USD 24.5 million in 4Q2014. For all of 2014, cashflow from operations was USD 77.7m compared with -USD 11.1m in 2013.The strong level in 1Q2015 was reflected in an average TCE rate of about USD 37,000 per vessel per day, as against USD 24,000 per day per vessel achieved in 4Q2014 and USD 26,300 in 1Q2014.Earnings per share in 1Q2015 was USD 0.34, compared with -USD 0.02 in 4Q2014, and USD 0.05 for 1Q2014.“The size of its fleet allows NAT to reap immediate and sizeable profits when spot market rates rise. Even with its inherent volatility, the tanker market remains strong. So far, the 2Q2015 tanker market is encouraging,” NAT said.On April 14, 2015, NAT declared a cash dividend of USD 0.38 per share payable to shareholders of record as of May 7, 2015. The dividend is expected to be paid on or about May 21, 2015.The balance sheet was strengthened in 1Q2015 as NAT retained about USD 17m of cashflow from operations during the quarter.“In an opportunistic way NAT is now assessing investments that further build up the position of the company. After an acquisition of vessels or other forms of expansion, our objective is for the company to pay a higher dividend per share and produce higher earnings per share than had such an acquisition not taken place,” the company said.According to NAT, despite decreased seaborne imports of crude oil into the US, going forward, European crude imports have shown a rising trend along with economies in the Far East that have resumed their growth.last_img read more

Trudeau pledges tougher gun control as he tries to get campaign back

first_imgTORONTO – Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is promising to ban all military-style assault rifles as part of a broader gun-control plan that will also take steps towards restricting and banning handguns.“People are dying. Families are grieving. Communities are suffering,” he said. “So we’re going to do more and we’re going to do better. Thoughts and prayers are just not going to cut it.”In Toronto, Liberal Leader @JustinTrudeau making a gun control announcement #elxn43 #cdnpoli— Cormac Mac Sweeney (@cmaconthehill) September 20, 2019Trudeau made the pledge in Toronto as he worked to get his campaign back on track after apologizing for wearing blackface years ago. The Liberals have also pledged to work with provinces and territories to empower municipalities to further restrict or ban handguns.He made the announcement in the city’s Greektown neighbourhood, where a gunman killed two people and wounded 13 others last year in a shooting rampage.The party says it will protect the rights of law-abiding hunters and vows not to re-establish the controversial long-gun registry that was scrapped by the previous Conservative government.Trudeau says the Liberals will ban military assault rifles and allow municipalities to implement hand gun bans #elxn43 pic.twitter.com/YFsewnoZw6— Cynthia Mulligan (@CityCynthia) September 20, 2019But Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has said that Trudeau’s party is focused on the wrong things.“Our plan goes after the real criminals.

Cricket Legend Sachin Tendulkar Highlights Fathers Role In Childrens Early Development

first_imgSachin Tendulkar and UNICEF today released a new video to celebrate fatherhood and highlight the importance of love, play, protection and good nutrition for the healthy development of young children’s brains.Video: Sachin Tendulkar on why early moments matter I UNICEFThe video will be played at the International Cricket Council Champions Trophy 2017 Final at The Oval, London on Sunday 18 June, when more than 80 countries celebrate Father’s Day.The video features cricketer and father-of-two Sachin Tendulkar who is widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time. It is part of UNICEF’s Super Dads initiative, which invites families to post photos and videos of what it takes to be ‘super dads,’ using the hashtag #EarlyMomentsMatter on their Instagram and Twitter accounts.To inspire families across the world to share their ‘super dads’ moments, photos and videos of UNICEF ambassadors and supporters who have got behind the campaign will be posted on UNICEF’s Instagram and Twitter, and featured on the campaign’s gallery between 6 and 18 June.“When I was a young child, my father gave me the right amount of love, freedom and support to shape who I am today,” said UNICEF Ambassador Sachin Tendulkar. “Every kid needs protection, love, good food and play to support growth and development, and it’s up to both parents to provide these.”Good parenting in early childhood, especially during the first 1,000 days, sparks neural connections in children’s brains, laying the foundation for their future successes. Research suggests that when children positively interact with their fathers, they have better psychological health, self-esteem and life-satisfaction in the long-term.The ‘Super Dads’ initiative forms part of UNICEF’s #EarlyMomentsMatter campaign, which aims to drive increased understanding of how children’s environments and experiences in early childhood can shape their future health, well-being, ability to learn, and even how much they will earn as adults.All photo and video submissions to the Super Dads initiative will feature on the #EarlyMomentsMatter gallery. UNICEF will select the most heart-warming, humorous, and imaginative photo and video submissions post them on the organization’s own digital platforms.last_img read more

Passenger vehicle retail sales slide 2 in April

first_imgNew Delhi: Automobile dealers’ body FADA Wednesday said retail sales of passenger vehicles (PV) in March declined by 2 per cent to 2,42,457 units as compared to the same period last year. PV sales stood at 2,47,278 units in April 2018, according to Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations (FADA).Two-wheeler sales declined by 9 per cent to 12,85,470 units last month compared with 14,09,662 units in the year-ago period. Commercial vehicle sales declined by 16 per cent to 63,360 units against 75,622 units in April last year. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraThree-wheeler sales saw a dip of 13 per cent to 47,183 units last month. Total sales, across categories, declined by 8 per cent to 16,38,470 units in April, against 17,86,994 units in the same month last year. “On a year-on-year basis, there was de-growth in all the categories as April 2018 had a very high base,” FADA President Ashish Harsharaj Kale said in a statement. The near-term outlook continues to be negative to neutral with the absence of any immediate positive triggers which could affect retail sales, he added. Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysKale said that despite negative situation, which is expected to continue over the next 8-12 weeks, the industry still believes that things could become better if there is a stable government in place. Besides, an average to above average monsoon with an even spread and continued easing of liquidity by Reserve Bank of India can also help the sector, he added. Kale said that inventory levels continue to remain high and requires further correction than done in recent months. “We believe that high inventory at this time is an extra burden on the auto dealers especially when the current environment is witnessing negative sales growth combined with extremely tight working capital availability,” he added. FADA will be strongly advocating for a leaner inventory of 21 days for its members thus helping them reduce a huge cost burden to stay afloat in these challenging times, Kale said. He added that consumer liquidity in April has seen marginal improvement but continues to be tight and still far away from the normal levels. “FADA is extremely concerned at the dealer liquidity which continues to remain very very tight and access to working capital for dealers has reduced further with the banking system taking a negative view towards auto retail in the current circumstances,” Kale said. There have been an unusually high number of dealership closures in recent times, especially in metro and tier 1 cities.last_img read more

US employers advertised 467 million job openings in June most since February

WASHINGTON – U.S. employers in June advertised the most monthly job openings in more than 13 years.Employers posted 4.67 million jobs in June, up 2.1 per cent from May’s total of 4.58 million, the Labor Department reported Tuesday. The number of advertised openings was the highest since February 2001, a positive sign that points to a strengthening economy.The report “provides further confirmation that the US labour market has indeed shifted to a period of stronger growth,” said Jeremy Schwartz, an analyst at the bank Credit Suisse.Known as the Job Openings and Labor Turnover survey or JOLTS, the report provides a detailed look at where employment might be heading. It records job postings, overall hiring and the number of workers who either quit or were laid-off. By contrast, the monthly employment report shows the net total of job gains or losses.Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen relies on the JOLTS report as a barometer for economic conditions. The June figures indicate that employers are looking to expand, yet actual hiring has not increased as significantly in recent months.Roughly the same percentage of Americans quit their jobs in June as they did in May, though the rate has increased over the past year. Quit rates usually rise when employees are finding new and better-paying jobs.Hiring rose in June to 4.83 million, up from 4.74 million in May. Still, the hiring rate has not risen over the past year as quickly as the number of positions being advertised.Job openings have increased 17.6 per cent during the past 12 months, while hiring has risen 9.3 per cent during the same period.This suggests a mismatch in the jobs market.Some economists interpret the slower pace of hiring as a sign that workers lack the necessary skills. People who previously worked in manufacturing or construction might not have the right background to segue into the health care sector.The other possibility is that companies are offering low wages that fail to attract the workers they want. If companies offered higher salaries, which could cause more openings to be filled and boost wages, which have barely match inflation since the recession ended more than five years ago.But the pressure on employers to offer more generous wages could be increasing. On average, there are 2 unemployed workers for every job opening. That’s down from an average of 2.6 unemployed people per opening at the start of the year. As that ratio continues to fall, employers will likely have to boost salaries.

New Mexico State arrives hoping to spook the Buckeyes

New Mexico State travels to Columbus to face No. 17 Ohio State Saturday on Halloween.The Aggies (3-5, 1-3) are not expected to give the Buckeyes (6-2, 4-1) much of a scare, but OSU coach Jim Tressel remains firm in his stance that his team cannot afford to overlook any opponent.Purdue held a record of 1-5 when it upset OSU in West Lafayette, Ind.“To me, focused is having a moment-by-moment awareness of what needs to be done,” Tressel said. “I don’t feel like we did a great job of having that focus or awareness a couple weeks ago. … Purdue did what you have to do. They got five takeaways, they did this and they did that. If we have an understanding of what needs to be done today, we go do that as well as we can do it.”Saturday’s contest is a rare non conference game, breaking up the eight-game Big Ten slate.While the Aggies hope to come into The ‘Shoe and trick a confident Buckeye squad, their struggling defense could be a treat for a progressing OSU offense. New Mexico State has allowed 28 points and nearly 370 yards of offense per game.After five turnovers and only 18 points against Purdue, the Buckeye offense produced more than 500 yards against Minnesota during Saturday’s 38-7 victory.Tressel said he was satisfied with the evidence of offensive progression, which must continue this week against the Aggies.“I hope that they do understand that the progress we make or we don’t make will affect the next time we play when we get back in the conference. They seem to be a group that is willing to take instruction and if it’s reasonable, if it makes some sense, yeah, it makes some sense, we need to get better, well, let’s go get better. I don’t think that’s going to disrupt us.”The injury bug has taken its toll on the Buckeye roster, especially at running backs. Against Wisconsin on Oct. 10, Dan Herron reinjured the ankle he had sprained two weeks earlier, and Brandon Saine suffered a concussion during last week’s rout of Minnesota. Both backs’ statuses are up in the air, Tressel said.“If Brandon Saine is cleared, Brandon’s playing,” he said. “If ‘Boom’ Herron is cleared, he’s going to play. This is an important game, that’s one thing. We need to get better. That’s just as important. So the best chance you have to get better is on Saturdays.”New Mexico State has had its share of quarterback struggles. Jeff Fleming and Trevor Walls have split the duties, combining for four touchdowns and 11 interceptions, while completing just 52 percent of their passes.No matter how inferior an opponent the Buckeyes might face on any given week, Tressel said he wants his troops concentrating on improving.“This is game nine,” he said. “We’ve got to progress. I’m not sitting here today saying, you know what, I think we’ll put this guy in or that guy in. No, we’re going out all barrels blazing and do what the situation calls for.” read more

Softball rallies around firstyear coach

New coach, no problem. Despite being saddled with the difficult task of replacing a program legend, first-year Ohio State coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly is embracing her new role at the helm of the Buckeyes softball team. Prior to Schoenly’s arrival from Miami (Ohio), OSU had been under the direction of former coach Linda Kalafatis, who compiled 538 wins and six NCAA Tournament appearances in her 16 seasons leading the Buckeyes. Kalafatis was let go in May after OSU declined to renew her contract. “I have a ton of respect for (Kalafatis) and the coaching staffs she’s brought to the program through the years,” Schoenly said. “We constantly tell the girls she’s part of our tradition … She’s a great coaching legend for the Ohio State softball program and I’m proud to follow in her footsteps.” While replacing a program stalwart is difficult enough, trying to get 21 players, 17 of whom played under the previous regime, to buy into a new coach’s identity can be equally challenging. “Every group of girls is going to have its own mentality,” Schoenly said. “So you just want to embrace the personalities in the group that you have. I’m not trying to change them, you have to find the strength in each kid and let it come out.” With wins against three ranked opponents (No. 8 Georgia, No. 16 Louisville and No. 14 Arizona), Schoenly’s Buckeyes are off to a hot start at 9-6. “I think the team has responded great,” said senior third baseman Megan Coletta. “It was a fresh start for everyone and the (new) coaches made it really easy with how they were open to us and very friendly with us.” Coletta said there haven’t been any issues with the new staff so far and that everything is going smoothly in the early season. “All of our new coaches are really energetic and lively,” said freshman utility fielder Cammi Prantl. “The team’s feeding off their energy and creating our own energy. I think everyone likes the positive environment.” During the transitional period after Kalafatis’ departure and Schoenly’s arrival, the team’s four seniors led off-season workouts to keep the women on the same page and to welcome the incoming freshmen to a coachless environment. “It’s not like we’re just freshmen to them,” Prantl said. “We’ve been included in the group the whole time.” The summer workouts paid dividends for the team’s eventual bonding once Schoenly was named coach. “This summer when there wasn’t a coach at all, the seniors were really involved with keeping the freshmen active,” Schoenly said. “(The seniors) were like little assistant coaches before we arrived, just keeping the freshmen on track and wanting to be here.” With the Big Ten season looming after OSU’s spring break, Schoenly said the real test begins once her team starts conference play against Indiana on March 22. Each day the OSU softball team spends together, they get closer and more familiar with the ways of their new head coach. The team knows the growing pains they suffer now will help them better prepare for the grind of conference play. “The adjustment is having to get to know all 21 (players),” Schoenly said. “You have to find out which buttons to push for which kids, and that takes some time to learn … My goal is to find out which kids fit what roles and to put them in positions to have success.” OSU is next scheduled to take on Maryland on Saturday at 1 p.m. in College Park, Md. read more

Mens Lacrosse No 5 Ohio State faces No 11 Notre Dame in

Then-sophomore attackman Jack Jasinski heads for the goal in the fourth quarter during the first round of the NCAA tournament against Loyola Maryland on May 14, 2017. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Former Oller ReporterThe Ohio State men’s lacrosse team will face its biggest test of the season to this point when it travels to take on No. 11 Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, on Saturday.Despite being the only undefeated team left in Division I, the Buckeyes (6-0) have yet to face a ranked opponent this season, and the Fighting Irish (4-2) will be the first.“To beat a team like Notre Dame, you’re going to have to be pretty buttoned up in almost every area, so that’s where our focus has been,” Ohio State head coach Nick Myers said.The No. 5 Buckeyes come into the game with some rest after their game scheduled against Denver last Saturday was canceled due to weather conditions.Myers said he was disappointed in not being able to play, but said the team used its break to come together as a team. But not playing a game since March 9 could prove to be costly for the Buckeyes.“Having two weeks off presents some positives but also so some challenges,” Myers said. “There’s a rhythm that you lose.”Notre Dame got back to its winning ways against Michigan on Tuesday, winning the contest 12-9 off the heels of senior Brendan Gleason’s two goals and an assist. The Fighting Irish also have two ranked wins against No. 4 Maryland and No. 13 Denver.The matchup between the two teams look very similar on paper. Ohio State and Notre Dame have a nearly identical scoring defense, with the Buckeye ranked 12th and Notre Dame ranked 13th. To Myers, the X play will be crucial to the overall success of Ohio State.Ohio State’s sophomore midfielder Justin Inacio has been dominant this season in the faceoff circle with a 63.6 win percentage. Inacio has also been massive on the ground game, ranking No. 5 in ground balls, recording 10.17 per game.Ohio State junior midfielder Christian Feliziani has helped a lot with the faceoff unit, not only with his on-field performance, but through his leadership.“Because of an injury, I couldn’t do a lot in the fall physically, so I tried to use my voice and what I could from the sidelines,” Feliziani said. “I would like to say I was a coach kind of.”Notre Dame  junior faceoff specialist Charles Leonard picked up a career-high 16 ground balls last week against Michigan, and was also dominant in the faceoff play, winning an impressive 20-of-24 faceoffs.Saturday will be the 44th matchup between the teams, with Notre Dame leading the series 34-9.No. 5 Ohio State will take on No. 11 Notre Dame on the road at 1 p.m Saturday. read more

Des cellules pancréatiques humaines créées en laboratoire

first_imgDes cellules pancréatiques humaines créées en laboratoireDes chercheurs de l’Inserm et du CNRS viennent de créer en laboratoire des cellules bêta pancréatiques humaines. Des cellules défectueuses dans les deux types de diabète 1 et 2 et si importantes pour réguler le taux de sucre dans l’organisme.C’est une première pour la recherche et plus particulièrement dans la lutte contre le diabète, maladie qui touche actuellement plus de trois millions de personnes en France. Depuis 30 ans, les chercheurs du monde entier tentent sans succès de reproduire les cellules bêta, productrices d’insuline, en laboratoire pour les étudier et comprendre leurs dysfonctionnements. Les cellules alpha et ces cellules bêta sont organisés en îlots dans la partie endocrine du pancréas, autrement dit celle qui produit les hormones. Tandis que les premières génèrent du glucagon, les secondes produisent, quant à elles, la fameuse insuline. Ce sont ces deux hormones qui régulent le taux de sucre dans l’organisme, une fois libérées dans le pancréas. Or, la destruction des cellules bêta productrices d’insuline conduit au diabète de type 1 tandis que la perturbation du fonctionnement de ces mêmes cellules conduit au diabète de type 2. D’où l’importance de concentrer des recherches sur ces structures comme l’ont fait les chercheurs de l’Inserm et du CNRS qui sont finalement parvenus à produire des cellules bêta pancréatiques humaines fonctionnelles productrices et sécrétrices d’insuline.Modifier l’expression génétique des cellules bêtaPour obtenir de telles cellules, les scientifiques ont dû suivre un protocole complexe en plusieurs étapes. Dans un premier temps, ils ont utilisé dans un fragment de foie foetal, un vecteur viral capable de s’intégrer dans l’ADN des cellules bêta, permettant ainsi d’effectuer un transfert de gènes et de conférer aux structures un avantage sélectif. Autrement dit, les cellules bêta sont devenues aptes à se multiplier continuellement sans dépérir.Dans un second temps, ils ont transplanté le tissu pancréatique dans l’organisme d’une souris immunodéficiente, permettant ainsi la différenciation et l’amplification des cellules bêta matures. Puis, après plusieurs mois, la tumeur formée a été retirée et dissociée, tandis que les cellules générées ont été amplifiées en culture, formant au final des lignées de cellules bêta stables, explique le communiqué du CNRS.”Certaines de ces lignées ont des propriétés moléculaires et fonctionnelles très proches d’une cellule bêta humaine adulte. Ces cellules expriment tous les gènes d’une cellule bêta. Aucune expression significative des autres hormones du pancréas endocrine ni des marqueurs du pancréas exocrine n’a été retrouvée “, explique ainsi Raphaël Scharfmann, directeur de recherche à l’Inserm.De nouveaux fondements thérapeutiquesÀ lire aussiDes chercheurs observent une nouvelle forme d’ADN dans des cellules vivantesUne fois les lignées conçues, il restait donc à tester l’efficacité des cellules. Pour ce faire, les chercheurs les ont greffées à une souris diabétique chez qui elles ont alors, parfaitement restauré le contrôle de la glycémie, indique Philippe Ravassard, co auteur de cette étude.Au vu de résultats si prometteurs, cette découverte a donc ouvert la voie à de nombreuses équipes de recherche pour travailler sur ces cellules bêta humaines tant attendues. Grâce à ce nouveau matériel, elles peuvent désormais espérer en savoir plus sur les propriétés et les dysfonctionnements de ces structures ou encore sur leur destruction observée dans les diabètes de type 1 et 2. Par ailleurs, ces cellules recréées rendront également possible la recherche de nouvelles molécules voire leur utilisation comme modèles précliniques de thérapie cellulaire du diabète.Mais avant de pouvoir faire de ces cellules un véritable traitement pour les diabétiques, il reste tout de même du chemin à parcourir.

Mass Effect Andromeda takes flight

first_imgElectronic Arts opened up their press conference with a big bang, announcing the much anticipated Mass Effect: Andromeda. The near two-minute-long trailer shows a glimpse of environments and cinematic sequences, just enough to whet our appetites and bemoan the Holiday 2016 release date.Bioware has kept the details of this new game under lock and key, with the exception of some survey info that was leaked earlier this year. What we do know is it takes place in a galaxy far away from the one we grew up in playing the original Mass Effetc trilogy. Your character, a human protagonist, will take point in this all new adventure; with new teammates and worlds to discover. But the character we see decked out in full N7 armor in the trailer? That’s not your main player, according to Bioware’s official press release anyways.The video also treats us to shots of the new and (hopefully) improved Mako, the all terrain vehicle that can scale mountains, but has a hard time making tight corners. We got to see some concept art in motion of the new worlds we’re expected to see in the game. Bioware built the new look in their Frost engine, and the depth and vividness of these locations are unparalleled with anything we’ve seen in the Mass Effect universe to date. They are taking full advantage of what the next generation of graphics cards and consoles have to offer players.There’s not a lot of information out about Andromeda beyond what we already knew from last year’s initial announcement , but everything about this feels like the ultimate space western!last_img read more

Musk Says Falcon Heavy Rocket Might Explode During First Flight

first_img Elon Musk’s Cheeky ‘Nuke Mars!’ Post Is Taking Over TwitterTesla EV Catches Fire After Colliding With Tow Truck in Moscow Stay on target Space travel ain’t easy, and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk knows it. Last year one of SpaceX’s rockets exploded on the launch pad causing damage that has left the company struggling to catch up on its orders. Soon the company will finally launch its ultra-heavy rocket, the Falcon Heavy. It’ll be the largest, most powerful rocket since the Saturn V ferried astronauts to the Moon in the 60s and 70s, and Musk thinks its maiden voyage will be a disaster, possibly repeating last year’s fiasco.“I hope it makes it far enough away from the pad that it does not cause pad damage. I would consider even that a win, to be honest,” Musk told NASA International Space Station program manager Kirk Shireman. “Major pucker factor, really; that’s, like, the only way to describe it.”Musk and Shireman spoke at the 2017 International Space Station Research and Development conference in DC just yesterday. The summit was a who’s who of advanced space and aeronautics research and engineering, but Musk, as he is wont to do, stole the show with talk of the Falcon Heavy, but not without reason.The US currently lacks a heavy-duty rocket, and Space X has had a bunch of spectacular wins recently. That has everyone buzzing with talk of the Falcon Heavy, because it will be the first vehicle since the Saturn V capable of carrying an astronaut to the Moon or even Mars. But Musk doesn’t want people jumping the gun. There’s a lot of technical hurdles his team had to address, and there’s plenty more testing it needs before people will be able to ride along.Falcon Heavy’s problem is a simple one, and it stems from Musk’s push to make space flight cheap and accessible — this rocket is basically just three Falcon 9s strapped together. But, obviously, that rocket wasn’t designed to work in tandem with others, so Musk and the team at SpaceX had to re-engineer the structure of the central column to support the additional weight and vibration. Not to mention account for extra drag, etc.All that means that the Falcon heavy loses a little bit of its theoretical maximum thrust, dropping it from 67 metric tons to 63.8.“At first, it sounds really easy: Just stick two first stages on as strap-on boosters. How hard can that be?” Musk said. “But then everything changes. All the loads change, aerodynamics change, you’ve tripled the vibration and acoustics… We had to redesign the whole center-core airframe. It’s not like the Falcon 9, because it’s got to take so much load.”Musk says that the engineering behind the new rocket was extensive, and given how much of the machine the team hasn’t been able to test in the lab, that a failure, crash, or explosion is likely. He promises that no matter what, the first mission will be “exciting.”There’s no official launch date set, but it’s likely to be early fall.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

ZSW engineers build lithiumion battery able to last for 27 years

The content is provided for information purposes only. More information: www.zsw-bw.de/uploads/media/pi … hiumbatterien_EN.pdf (Phys.org) —Officials at Germany’s Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg, (ZSW) have issued a press release describing improvements they’ve made to lithium-ion batteries. They claim their improvements allow a single battery to be recharged up to 10,000 times while still retaining 85 percent of its charging capacity. Such a battery, if used in an electric car, they note, would allow its owner to recharge the battery every day for 27.4 years. Citation: ZSW engineers build lithium-ion battery able to last for 27 years (2013, June 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-06-zsw-lithium-ion-battery-years.html Besides the initial high cost of car batteries for electric vehicles, one of the main factors preventing further adoption of electric vehicles is the knowledge that the batteries will need to be replaced after just eight to ten years of use (and in some cases as few as just 3). Batteries that could last 25 or 30 years would likely outlive many of the other cars’ parts, or the car itself, and if not too expensive, could finally give car buyers a compelling reason to switch from those that still rely on gasoline.ZSW’s announcement doesn’t come as a surprise to most in the auto industry—the company published a paper in Journal of Power Sources last year describing ongoing research into electrode manufacturing process improvements that they claimed could dramatically improve the longevity of lithium-ion batteries. They noted then that electrode thickness changes, how much the electrodes compact during use and the type of conducting agent used in their construction when engineered in a new way, could help such batteries endure more recharging.The newly redesigned batteries have approximately four times the density of current batteries (1,100 Watts per kilogram) and have been designed for use in storing power created by wind and solar farms and also in automotive vehicles.ZSW doesn’t say in its press release when they expect to deliver their new battery to manufacturers for use in actual cars or alternative storage devices. This likely means the company is still testing its concept to ensure that not only will the batteries hold up to claims of longevity but are safe in other ways as well. The company also noted that it has designed the new cell type itself as well as developing the manufacturing process used to make the battery. They’ve also made several prototype batteries in the 18650 format. Explore further Credit: ZSW Understanding the life of lithium ion batteries in electric vehicleslast_img read more

New York New York – Reported by Elite Traveler t

first_imgNew York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineWith lush-green mountains towering over 13,000 feet and a sub-tropical climate weather, Taiwan offers a variety of incredible natural resources. Recently named by Lonely Planet as one of the “Top 10 Best Countries to Visit in 2012,” the island is progressively transforming itself into a “Nature Wonderland” for international travelers to enjoy. In March, Taiwan will host two popular green events; the International Orchid Show in Tainan from March 3 – 12, and Yilan Green Exposition in Yilan from March 31 – May 20, to demonstrate its commitment to eco-tourism.“Taiwan’s mission to provide green sustainable living has been recognized by our international peers,” said Trust Lin, Director of Taiwan Tourism Bureau Los Angeles. “Our island is considered a ‘green trendsetter’ because of our continuous effort to develop impactful events focusing on green living. To us, this style of living is the only way to preserve Taiwan’s natural treasures, and a healthy sustainable environment for our people and travelers.”The Taiwan International Orchid Show in Tainan from March 3 – 12 is considered the most popular horticultural event for the past 10 years because the county has consistently produced 40% of all orchids grown in Taiwan. Tainan’s rich botanical resources for cultivating orchids has secured the island as the world’s largest orchid exporter, and recognized by orchid collectors worldwide as the “Orchid Kingdom.” And with an expected attendance of over 3,000 international floral exporters and buyers at the show, the “Orchid Kingdom” plans to unveil its newly developed breeds – Phalaenopsis and Oncidium (Dancing Lady Orchid) – for the world to admire.In continuation of its commitment to green living, the island is hosting the 13th annual Yilan Green Expo from March 31 – May 20. Lasting two months, the popular expo plans to incorporate the “Organic” concept into three key exhibit areas – Garden, Food & Lifestyle and Farm.In the Garden area, visitors will learn the importance of how and which of the Five Chinese natural elements – metal, wood, water, fire and earth – define their personality. Then, the fun will begin when they let their defined personalities guide them to experience and enjoy a variety of food, music and gardening throughout the expo.For the interactive visitors, the Food & Lifestyle area will provide demonstrations on how to save food during the cooking process. In addition, visitors can roll-up their sleeves to learn how to grow an organic family garden through recycling kitchen waste.As for visitors interested in learning about how the traditional Taiwanese farmers lived, enjoyed and maintained a true healthy sustainable green lifestyle, the Farm area will include a traditional farmstead mansion, a terraced field and a rice paddy field specifically designed and built for the expo to educate local and international visitors on the various aspects of farm life.www.go2taiwan.netlast_img read more

Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan has written to Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Urjit Patel seeking an inquiry into the issue In his letter Chavan referred to an article on Firstpost which pointed out that the number of loan accounts reported by public sector banks to the state government was initially exaggerated by about 910 lakhs He also referred to an article in The Indian Express which said that the Union Bank of India initially gave an estimate of 648 lakh defaulting farmers which was later brought down to 134 lakhs by the state government "As a result the loan disbursement process in the state has collapsed leaving millions of farmers in (the) lurch" the letter which was sent on 29 November states Prithviraj Chavan has lashed out at the role of the banks which resulted in mismanagement of the scheme "The implementation of the (farm loan waiver) scheme has hit a serious roadblock as the banks both the public sector and co-operative were found to have inflated the number of farm loan accounts by about 14 lakhs" he wrote However he has also stated that there could be a ‘problem in the state government’s online application process and not in the bank data’ The letter sent by Prithviraj Chavan to RBI Governor Urjit Patel Sanjay Sawant/Firstpost In June this year the State Level Bankers Committee announced that Rs 34022 crore was sanctioned to be deposited in 89 lakh beneficiary accounts However the number dropped sharply to 7729 lakh accounts owing to stringent screening methods removing the scope of ghost accounts and multiple beneficiaries from the same family In an interview to Firstpost on 25 November Chavan alleged that Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis is using the loan waiver as a ‘publicity tool’ He said that the government must either file a criminal case against the banks or the chief minister should ‘reveal the truth about the mess’ Chavan further stated that the requirement of Aadhaar cards and the complexity of the application form— with 66 sections to be filled— affected the rollout of the scheme As this report points out the state government initially received 105 crore applications from farmers The banks furnished a list of 7729 lakh who according to their records were eligible for the waiver But a combined master list by Innowave— the government’s IT vendor— had only 239 lakh valid applicants Mismatches in Aadhaar numbers incorrect names and loan amounts have led to delays in the disbursement of the loan waiver As a result of the technical glitches very few farmers have actually received the benefit of the scheme as yet With the winter session of the Legislative Assembly to begin on 11 December in Nagpur the Devendra Fadnavis-led government is expected to be at the receiving end of severe criticism as Opposition parties have been lashing out at it over the scheme Mumbai: Shiv Sena on Friday backed Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s remarks that secularism was the "most misused" term and hit out at Congress alleging that it effected constitutional amendments to suit its "dirty politics" The party said that the Dalit population has over the years realised that Congress has used the ‘divide-and-rule formula’ to serve its "selfish politics" of votebank Representational image AFP "The Congress ensured that walls of caste creed and religion were permanent The word secularism has been misused in our country" the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece Saamna "The Constitution was framed to ensure that the country remains a strong sovereign nation But several amendments were made for dirty politics In the Shah Bano case constitutional amendment was made to overturn a historic Supreme Court verdict" the ruling alliance partner alleged Because of such instances the country’s sovereignty is under threat it said "Secularism is the most misused word in the country Its misuse should come to an end Because of the rampant misuse of the word there have been instances of tension in the society" Rajanth had said on Thursday during a debate on the ‘Commitment to India’s Constitution’ as part of 125th birth anniversary of BR Ambedkar in Lok Sabha Singh had also said that Ambedkar the architect of the Constitution had never thought of putting the term ‘secularism’ in the Preamble but it was incorporated through an amendment in 1976 "The words ‘socialist’ and ‘secular’ were incorporated in the Preamble through the 42nd amendment of the Constitution We have no objection" he said Referring to the debate in Lok Sabha the Saamna editorial slammed the Congress for claiming that Ambedkar his constitutional framework and its implementation were all because of the party "The Dalit population has over the years realised that the Congress which ensured Ambedkar’s defeat in the Lok Sabha polls has used the ‘divide-and-rule formula’ and used followers of Ambedkar for their selfish politics as votebank" the Sena further alleged The celebration of Constitution Day would be meaningful if wisdom dawns on selfish politicians not to use these words the editorial opined PTI Written by Shiny Varghese | Updated: March 5 2017 12:22 pm Charting their own course — From L to R: Chitra Vishwanath Brinda Somaya and Sheila Sri Prakash Related News Histories of women are seldom narrated much less of those in the design realm be it Ray Eames who needed a Pat Kirkham to bring her out of her husband Charles’s shadow or closer home Urmila Eulie Chowdhury who worked closely with Le Corbusier in the planning of Chandigarh but rarely finds a mention in conversations around its making The male-dominated space of architecture has little room for women to practice the profession without male partners We speak to three women architects in the country who set up offices on their own steam stayed conscious of their values and questioned the very definition of architecture Brinda Somaya Somaya and Kalappa Consultants Mumbai Can you tell us about a project that gave you insights into the act of architecture In 1995 we were working on the revitalisation of the Nityanand Ashram outside Bombay The clients wanted a plaza near the temple for the flower-sellers We built them nice shops but they refused to move in We later realised that we had never asked them what they wanted They needed shops that could be raised so that they could store unsold flowers in the dark a space for water etc So no matter how big or small a project is if you don’t understand why and what you are building then there’s no point to it In your four decades of practice you have done hotels and slum housing commercial and conservation projects As an architect what satisfies youthe most We have built across the country from the Himalayas to south India from Kolkata to Jharkhand We believe in doing pro bono projects; it accounts for about 20 per cent of our work There was a project in Badli Kutch soon after the 2001 earthquake When I got there people were out in the cold their houses had been turned to rubble They wanted to build on their original parcels of land close to their own neighbours So we did an accurate survey and built it in a grid pattern just as they had desired During my first visit I saw a little girl sleeping in the open When we went there the last time she had gone to another village because she’s now in high school It gave me an immense sense of satisfaction We as architects are privileged We have the creativity and ability to innovate new forms restore and rebuild As the chairperson of the School of Planning and Architecture Vijaywada what do you have to say about the process of selection for the Amaravati Capital Complex project Our biggest tragedy as a profession is that there are not enough architects and urban planners who can effect change Cities should not be planned in government offices; urban designers have a role to play When a committee is formed it should have 90 per cent professionals but often it’s mere tokenism I’m not against foreign architects We have collaborated with many international firms But we have to understand whom we are building for What was it like when you began Somaya and Kalappa Consultants in 1978 I never dreamt that I would build as I did I began work in my own garden shed with no business plan My husband was in the army and we moved around quite a bit There were times when I said I was an architect but would be introduced as an interior designer I built a body of work slowly and steadily You’ve spoken in the past of women labourers on construction sites and the wage discrepancies they suffer which male architects often overlook Do you think women architects respond differently to issues It is not necessarily gender-based Over the years many architects who worked in our firm have been men but they have been equally sensitive on a construction site Though Zaha Hadid is quoted to have said that the well-being of construction labourers isn’t her responsibility It really depends on an individual What’s on your drawing board that excites you currently We are the exhibition designers for a travelling show ‘India and the World: A History in Nine Stories’ It has been planned as a celebration of 70 years of India’s independence and will show objects and artwork from specific periods of India’s history besides iconic objects from the British Museum collection We will also open a campus in Indore soon that will house 1500 engineers These projects epitomise the breadth of our work as a firm Chitra Vishwanath Biome Solutions Bangalore Chitra Vishwanath doesn’t believe in walls Be it the four walls of a house or the separation of water energy and food from the act of building itself Her own home-cum-studio in Vidyaranyapura north Bangalore has minimal doors maximum windows and spaces with ample air and light that obey the diurnal movement of the sun While many professionals speak of green architecture like a coat of paint on a wall Vishwanath puts it to practice “How does one manage water and sanitation in an urban context We don’t just do a one-off home outside the city We build in the city for salaried common people Even if it is a 600 sq ft plot it will have daylight and rainwater harvested” says Vishwanath Her firm Biome Environmental Solutions was created from the merger of Chitra Vishwanath Architects and Rainwater Club founded by her husband — engineer and water warrior S Vishwanath — in 2008 Vishwanath evangelises the use of stabilised mud blocks as an alternative to bricks — their own home became the testing lab: from recycling wastewater to solar cooking and a waterless toilet “We scooped out soil to make a basement though we didn’t know if it would work But today we insist that every house should have a basement because it’s cooler We built a mezzanine and went about placing thermometers in every room to check the temperature On cold nights the mezzanine is the warmest place We also learnt that placing bedrooms lower than the kitchen can be a problem for an ageing parent” says the 54-year-old Vishwanath’s penchant for making came from her sculptor father who often has visitors like KG Subramanyan visiting their home “We made our own cabinets and if it didn’t work we reworked them My father was always talking about new materials and experimenting We would talk about construction as a profession as a craft as an act” she says Is skilled manpower a challenge to her engineered buildings “As architects you imagine someone else to be born with the skills and all that architects need to do is spout jargon and wear black The question is: what are you expecting Are you expecting a wall to be beautiful or the space to be beautiful lf you make good spaces and there’s a little flaw on the wall it’s okay it’s wabi-sabi the Japanese acceptance of imperfection What good is a perfect wall but a poor space Should we make regurgitated designs for a glossy foreign magazine or are we looking at how to empower an agricultural labourer in the city during the dry months to feed his family” For Vishwanath engaging with the city and people has little to do with brick and mortar “I work in my area mostly with women garbage collectors What I’m personally interested in are the inclusive play spaces we are creating for children with disabilities We have been partnering with Kilikili a registered trust formed by parents of children with special needs” she says Ultimately being a woman in a man’s world has never been a problem for Vishwanath who studied civil engineering before architecture at the Centre for Environment Planning and Technology (CEPT) University Ahmedabad Not only does she know how to cost a building but she also has a nuanced understanding of structural details “Often it’s your own peers whom you have to confront Would Zaha Hadid be lampooned as much if she were a man” she says Sheila Sri Prakash Shilpa Architects Chennai Is there a difference between “ready-made space” and “space in the making” Architect Sheila Sri Prakash finds her rhythm in the latter As a Bharatanatyam artiste much of her sense of movement and space comes from dance “Both my dance and architecture are connected Both involve line and movement One learns how rhythm can be created and broken and how boundaries are set As a dancer one is always creating a storyline an ambience for the audience It’s that space in your head before it’s enacted where a river flows and the mountain lies” says 61-year-old Prakash Her practice Shilpa Architects that was launched in 1979 has seen the construction of civic commercial residential and industrial buildings across Tamil Nadu but it didn’t come easy for the award-winning architect A professor at the School of Architecture and Planning in Chennai asked her at the entry interview if she would be depriving another student; clients told her to design for free because she’s a woman — Prakash battled indifference and scepticism early in her career But she learnt to balance cynicism with craft If the Cholamandal Centre for Contemporary Art in Chennai honours artists of the Madras Movement the Mahindra World City Club draws from the cultural heritage of Kanchipuram Her response to the materiality of materials is based on its usage “I love the earthy quality of brick and its porosity and the transparency of glass Today people put a film over glass place it in the wrong direction which generates too much heat We need to ask: why are we placing these windows Is it only for a view Or is it for air Can its proportions change” At a conference on steel last year Prakash spoke of its sculptural possibilities Though she seldom uses it in her own buildings she asked if the profession could move beyond the industrial use of steel and allow it the movement it affords like in Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava’s Milwaukee Art Museum where the moveable roof spans out like wings based on the position of the sun Prakash’s idea of sustainable design in cities values the role of multiple participants “It’s like an orchestra where you include the movement and silences of every member The reciprocity of design is a value system for urban design indicators which bring holistic sustainability You can’t design without considering climate availability of water human potential and social values” says Prakash who has presented this idea of urban design in forums in India and abroad Yet Chennai stays close to her heart even if her army upbringing had her travelling across the country “I’m from Chennai and the artistic values I received from the city and my gurus are strong within me These values are our strength; it’s what differentiates us from the others” For all the latest

next week with the government reaching out to opposition parties even as the Congress described the exercise as "constructive and positive" Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanyam today held several rounds of talks with leaders of Congress and other parties including the Samajwadi Party JD(U) and CPI(M) Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram Anand Sharma and Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha participated in the discussions with Jaitley There were two rounds with the Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi PTI "Serious effort is being made to bring a consensus on the GST bill" Sharma said without disclosing details on whether the Congress was insisting on its standing about putting a cap on the levy in the Constitution bill Congress sources said party Vice President Rahul Gandhi also expects a positive outcome from these consultations They said the discussions have entered a "decisive and positive phase" "Talks are on with various parties on GST and so far things are moving forward as expected" a senior government functionary said adding the effort is on to present it in the Rajya Sabha next week Sources say Jaitley told the opposition leaders that government wants to bring consensus on the GST and was ready for talks with any leader even during the weekend to hear out and address their concerns on the issue A top congress leader however said they were awaiting the draft of the legislation after "extensive talks" with the government and hoped for a "positive outcome" At the meeting of Business Advisory Committee (BAC) of Upper House today evening the GST bill was not discussed as it has already earmarked five hours for the bill last week Jaitley also met SP leader Ram Gopal Yadav and CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury and held talks with other leaders also Sources add that the government is also in touch with AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa on the key bill Prime Minister Narendra Modi talked to Yadav when the Rajya Sabha was adjourned briefly during the Question Hour Modi remained seated in the House during the brief adjournment and spoke to Yadav and another SP member Neeraj Shekhar Meanwhile five parties including the Left on Thursday asked the Centre to assure states that their financial needs will be taken care of before the GST Bill is brought which they allege seeks to take away states’ right to raise resources This was conveyed by them to Jaitley when leaders of the parties in Rajya Sabha belonging CPI(M) CPI Trinamool Congress Samajwadi Party and BJD met him CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury said the Constitution amendment bill would make the states "to come with a begging bowl to the Centre placing them at the Centre’s mercy" He said the GST Bill would deprive the states of their "right to raise resources" through sales tax surcharge or cess "The state governments will be deprived of their only right to raise revenue as this right will be abolished with the Bill" as they would not be able to impose any cess even during an emergency or natural disaster he said adding that this was conveyed to the Finance Minister at the meeting "The GST Bill is only meant for imposing a tax It does not deal with Centre-State relations So a resolution has to be found outside the Bill and the government has to come out with an assurance" the CPI(M) leader said adding that "we will have to see how the government addresses this issue" Regarding the meeting Yechury said "we were merely informed about the discussion the government had with the Congress There was no scope for a discussion" He also said there is "nothing in writing so far" on what the latest bill actually says Accusing the Narendra Modi government of going by the strength of the parties in Parliament to hold discussions on the GST Bill he said "so we are immaterial in terms of number of seats we have It is a game between the BJP and the Congress" Asked whether Jaitley indicated by when the bill will be brought to Rajya Sabha
