(Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)Jake Fromm injury update: we now have more details on how the Georgia quarterback broke his non-throwing hand yesterday. Based on a report by Rivals, it was legitimately a freak accident involving a friend wakeboarding.News of the injury emerged on Wednesday afternoon. It was the second freakish injury that Fromm has suffered while participating in lake activities this off-season.Earlier in the year, the Georgia starter got a fishing lure caught in his leg, prompting a hospital trip. It was a minor, but gruesome-looking, injury.This latest incident was of a similar freakish, accidental variety. From Rivals:Apparently Fromm was with a group of friends who were trying to get someone up on a wake board, and their pull rope slipped away, snapping the attached handle back to hit Fromm in the hand. It was just a freak accident as all Fromm was doing was sitting in the back of the boat. The Georgia quarterback was just unlucky.The latest Jake Fromm injury is not expected to cost him major time.According to ESPN, it is a small fracture, and he is not expected to miss any summer workouts. That’s a good news for Fromm and the Dawgs.Fromm inherited his starting job at the beginning of last season, after starter Jacob Eason went down with an injury. From there, he led Georgia to the national championship game.He still has to perform this season, though. Georgia brought in elite blue-chipper Justin Fields in the 2018 recruiting class. He’s one of the most highly-touted players in the entire country.At the same time, Georgia’s QB depth is very thin behind Fields. Eason transferred to Washington this off-season, and highly regarded walk-on Stetson Bennett, who was set to be third-string, elected to head to junior college in order to attract FBS scholarship offers.[Rivals]last_img read more

first_img This 1949 Barn Find Coupe Was Resurrected As a 638-Horsepower Hellraiser Editors’ Recommendations The All-New 2020 Corvette Stingray Is a Mid-Engine Supercar for the Everyman Acura has had a rough go of it the last few years, proffering uninspired entry-level luxury vehicles with a vague sense of design language.Finally, things are looking up.

Chamber President Commends IT Workers in Mo-Bay Free Zone

first_imgNewly elected President of the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Nathan Robb, has commended workers in the Montego Bay Free Zone for providing quality service to “high-value” clients.“Having had an extensive tour of the Free Zone, for the first time, I have a new found respect for those thousands of young Jamaicans who work in the business processing sector. I saw them at their best, and I saw them giving value,” he said.The President was speaking at a meeting on May 27, held at the Sunset Resort, in Montego Bay, where an update on the Biennial Jamaica Diaspora Conference, to be held from June 16-19 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, was provided by State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hon. Arnaldo Brown.“Quite often we criticize young people and paint a picture of them as being worthless. I am telling you, you need to see those thousands of young persons there dealing with high-value clients,” Mr. Robb emphasized.He noted that representatives from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) were also on the visit, and they were impressed at the service provided at the call centres by Jamaicans.“They were totally amazed with the high value clients, and the fact that our young Jamaicans were dealing with it totally unscripted. These are areas that do exist in Western Jamaica, and we intend to fully participate in development that is going to be for the long term benefit of Jamaica, and all of us in Western Jamaica,” Mr. Robb said.Meanwhile, Minister of State in the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Sharon Ffolkes-Abrahams, said investors are pleased with the Montego Bay area for their call centre operations, and that expansions for the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) type operations are on the horizon for Mandeville, Portmore and other parts of the island.“We believe that Montego Bay is the centre of the IT industry, and investors want to come to Montego Bay. When you show them elsewhere, they generally prefer to come to Montego Bay. The city has the infrastructure, the community colleges, and the requisite persons who are trained in the area, and it is a beautiful area, and they like to live here,” the State Minister said.Mrs. Ffolkes-Abrahams said that investors in India and the Philippines want to come to Jamaica, “because we are near to the United States of America, and we speak English very well.”She pointed out that a company, Vistaprint, came and has now relocated its headquarters to Montego Bay, because of the people.“Our value is in the people, and the people are able, the people are willing, and they must have the opportunity to (provide quality service),” the State Minister said.Contact: Garfield L.

Anthony Veder Nets 1st Sustainable Shipping Loan

first_imgzoom Gas carrier owner Anthony Veder Group has secured the industry’s first sustainable shipping loan via its €66 million (USD 71 million) Euro Private Placement concluded in the fourth quarter of 2015, the company said.As disclosed, the loan is fully certified according to the Clean Shipping Index Guidelines by Bureau Veritas and it is a landmark transaction in the global shipping industry which to date, has not joined the ranks of verified sustainable financing.The transaction was solely arranged by ABN AMRO to finance the building of the 18,000 cubic metre Ice Class 1A Super LNG carrier Coral EnergICE, which uses the boil off of its cargo to fuel the propulsion of the vessel. The vessel will be on a long term time charter contract with Finland’s Gasum to serve its 100% subsidiary Skangas.The financing has been structured as a 20 year European Private Placement and placed with Delta Lloyd Asset Management.ABN AMRO worked with Anthony Veder Group to create a Sustainable Shipping Framework and managed the process with Clean Shipping Index and Bureau Veritas, which verified the vessel’s compliance with applicable sustainability principles.Jan Valkier, CEO Anthony Veder comments: “The creation of this framework reflects our commitment to developing cost and energy-efficient solutions for small to mid-size LNG carriers and we are extremely pleased with this innovative transaction and the professional and efficient manner in which ABN AMRO and Delta Lloyd managed this process.”“This is a unique deal. ABN AMRO and Delta Lloyd are the first financial institutions to perform a thorough sustainability assessment of a ship design during the loan approval process. Investing in clean ships is a key driver for enhancing the environmental development of the maritime industry and sets a good example for other banks and investors,” Merijn Hougee of Clean Shipping Index said.last_img read more

Place à la sécurité en ce début de la saison de la

first_imgOn encourage vivement les pêcheurs de homard du sud-ouest de la Nouvelle-Écosse à faire preuve de prudence à l’occasion du début de leur saison de pêche lundi 27 novembre. « Les pêches sont une industrie fière et dynamique au cœur de notre patrimoine, mais pêcher est aussi une des professions les plus dangereuses dans la province, indique Labi Kousoulis, ministre du Travail et de l’Éducation postsecondaire. J’espère que nos pêcheurs connaîtront une bonne saison mais, ce qui est encore plus important, j’espère qu’ils rentreront à la maison sans avoir connu de problèmes. » Le jour de l’ouverture de la pêche, les capitaines et les équipages partent en mer avant le lever du jour, leurs bateaux bien remplis de casiers à homard. Les casiers sont lourds et peuvent être source de problèmes si la mer est agitée. On encourage fortement les pêcheurs à surveiller les prévisions météorologiques avant de prendre la mer, à examiner régulièrement leur équipement de sécurité, à porter leur vêtement de flottaison individuel et à être toujours prêts à intervenir en cas d’urgence. « Les pêcheurs ont pris l’initiative d’améliorer la sécurité à l’échelle de l’industrie. Je les félicite de leur engagement continu, indique Stuart McLean, directeur général de la Commission des accidents du travail de la Nouvelle-Écosse. Nous devons continuer d’intégrer la sécurité dans toutes nos conversations et nous devons poursuivre nos efforts en vue d’éliminer les blessures et les décès au travail. » L’amélioration de la sécurité dans l’industrie de la pêche a entraîné la réduction du tarif de l’employeur à la Commission des accidents du travail à son niveau le plus bas depuis 1991, ainsi qu’une réduction considérable du nombre de jours d’absence en raison d’une blessure. L’industrie et le gouvernement ont élaboré un plan intitulé « Objectif : Sécurité des pêches » afin d’améliorer la sécurité dans l’industrie de la pêche commerciale. Pour en apprendre davantage : La nécessité de réduire le nombre de décès et de blessures au travail dans des industries telles que la pêche est un élément clé de la stratégie sur la sécurité au travail de la Nouvelle-Écosse.

180 Million Cost of the New American Embassy in Rabat

Rabat- Built on 16,000 square meters of which 3,500 covered, the new US embassy in Rabat has reportedly required a total investment of $180 million. The new premises will be officially inaugurated around November 20th by the US Vice President Joe Biden and another top official whose identity has not yet been revealed, according to Le 360 website.“The land on which the embassy was built belongs to the US government. It was offered by the late king Hassan II to the United States in 1978,” says Aziz Younes, an American diplomat of Lebanese descent. He is also the head of project whose work began in February 2012 in the presence of the then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her Moroccan counterpart Saad Eddine El Othmani at the time Minister of Foreign Affairs. “The new premises have been designed to be eco-friendly, with the installation of a water recycling unit and a solar energy supply up to 35% of total consumption, said the U.S. official.“The embassy has the most sophisticated and modern protection systems and security surveillance. The chancery was built on the model of those of Pakistan and Jakarta in Indonesia,” he added. © Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

Moroccan Police Arrest Couple Assaulting a Child Domestic Worker

Rabat – Following a recent investigation into a case of child labor and employer abuse at the orders of the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN), Casablanca police found marks of physical violence on the victim, a 13-year-old girl who worked as a domestic employee in Casablanca.The victim’s family had known of the abuse their child experienced and filed complaints against the child’s employers, a married couple. The couple blackmailed the parents and forced them into withdrawing the lawsuit. The husband and wife are currently in police custody on charges of assault and battery, as more investigations are ongoing into the motives of the violence. Read Also: Low Standards in Moroccan Schools Put Children’s Education at RiskMeanwhile, an investigation into the local police officer whom DGSN accused of professional misconduct and laxity is ongoing under the supervision of the King’s attorney general to carry out the disciplinary procedures.Soon after media reports of the abuse of a child emerged, DGSN opened an investigation into the incident and judged that the police officer in charge of the case did not abide by the Penal Code criminalizing torture.According to Articles 231-1 and 231-3 of the Moroccan Penal Code, “any act of torture or intentional causing of pain or acute physical or mental suffering to a person by a public officer for the purpose of intimidating, pressuring him/her” is punishable by imprisonment from 10 to 20 years and a fine of MAD 20,000 to 50,000. read more

Former UN legal chief to mediate dispute between Equatorial Guinea Gabon

17 September 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced today that he has appointed the recently departed legal chief of the United Nations as his Special Adviser and Mediator to assist in resolving the continuing maritime border dispute between Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced today that he has appointed the recently departed legal chief of the United Nations as his Special Adviser and Mediator to assist in resolving the continuing maritime border dispute between Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.The two countries have been informed that Nicolas Michel of Switzerland – who served as UN Legal Counsel from August 2005 until the start of this month – will be the Special Adviser, UN spokesperson Marie Okabe told reporters.Mr. Michel had already been dealing with the border dispute as part of his duties as UN Legal Counsel, and Ms. Okabe said he would bring a reputation for impartiality and a commitment to the peaceful settlement of disputes, as well as his diplomatic and legal skills, to the new post.In July, after two days of meetings at the UN Office at Geneva (UNOG), Equatorial Guinea and Gabon issued a joint statement saying they had made substantial progress towards referring the maritime border dispute to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the main judicial organ of the UN.Representatives of the neighbouring African nations said they had worked on key documents for a planned joint submission to the ICJ, which would then adjudicate on the boundary.The dispute between Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, which emerged in 2003, centres on an island which has oil resources. The two States, which have agreed to exploit the area jointly until the dispute is resolved, plan to meet again in New York in September to finalize the documents being submitted to the ICJ. In another senior appointment announced today, Mr. Ban has selected Karin Landgren of Sweden as his Deputy Special Representative for Nepal, where a UN political mission (known as UNMIN) is based. Currently the head of child protection for the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Ms. Landgren has also worked for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). read more

UN aid for Afghan refugees repatriating from Pakistan set to resume

30 March 2009Afghan refugees seeking to return to their home country from north-west Pakistan will receive a boost when the United Nations resumes its voluntary repatriation programme this week. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) traditionally suspends its scheme during the winter months when few people decide to return to Afghanistan.The agency’s repatriation programme for registered Afghans in Peshawar, near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, will kick off on 1 April, while the start date for returnees from Quetta, further south in Pakistan, will be announced later.A large-scale voluntary return programme from Pakistan and Iran began in 2002, following the fall of the Taliban, and 4.4 million Afghans have returned home to date. Last year, 280,000 refugees repatriated under the initiative, and UNHCR predicts that some 220,000 others may opt to return this year.Registered Afghans repatriating with UNHCR’s help will receive around $100 per person as a transportation and re-integration grant to help them settle in Afghanistan.Last month, the Pakistani Government reached an agreement with UNHCR to allow some 1.7 million Afghans to continue sheltering in their country until the end of 2012.There are still nearly 3 million registered Afghan refugees in Pakistan and Iran, most of whom have been in exile for over two decades. read more

Wallace Ming should have accepted quashed penalty points

first_imgONE OF LUKE ‘Ming’ Flanagan’s fellow independent TDs has said Flanagan should have accepted the penalty points he was given for using a mobile phone while driving.Wexford TD Mick Wallace said, however, that Flanagan’s actions did not undermine the broader campaign by some TDs to highlight alleged Garda malpractice by having penalty points expunged.“He’s made a mistake, he’s got to learn from it,” Wallace told RTÉ’s Morning Ireland.“It doesn’t change the bigger picture, the bigger issue – which is the fact that we have evidence of serious malpractice in the Garda Síochána,” he added.Wallace and Flanagan were among four TDs who had held a press conference before Christmas, where details from a Garda dossier – which outlined tens of thousands of cases where penalty point offences had been wiped from the records – were revealed.The others were Clare Daly and Joan Collins of the United Left Alliance.“The termination of penalty points is widespread,” Wallace said. We have evidence of anywhere between 60,000 and 100,000 episodes of it.Last night, in a debate on new legislation to allow minor criminal convictions be wiped from a person’s record, Flanagan said he would appeal for the penalty points and associated fines to be restored to his licence.via HEAnetHe was caught using a mobile phone while driving on two occasions in 2011 – once on June 3, after which a Garda sergeant advised him to write and explain his business, after which no penalty points were added to his licence.On the second occasion, he was travelling to a council meeting in Roscommon when he was again stopped for using his mobile – mentioning the incident to a council official when he arrived.He said that official had called him again later that evening, advising that they had “sorted out” the issue for him.Longstanding legal precedent means members of the Oireachtas cannot be prosecuted for traffic offences if they are travelling on official Oireachtas business.Read: Ming: I want my penalty points backlast_img read more

Toutefois, les Français sondés sont seulement 48% à le vouloir.Les Européens vivront-ils plus vieux que leurs parents ? C’est en tout cas leur souhait, de manière globale, si l’on se fie à la dernière étude Pileje/Ifop, relayée par Le Parisien, et menée auprès d’un échantillon de 2.543 personnes, âgées de 18 ans et plus, selon la méthode des quotas.

Dungeons Dragons best offthebeaten monster races

first_imgWe’ve all been there. You’re relatively early on in a new Dungeons & Dragons campaign, excited to see what kind of monsters you’ll run across. You trek through the shadowy cave and are confronted by…Goblins. Again. Or maybe you’re a Dungeon Master, and are struggling to figure out what villainous civilization your players will be running up against next and all you can think of are…Orcs. Again.Fortunately for you, the 5th Edition Monster Manual features a ton of different monster races to use instead of those old green-skinned standbys. We’ve collected our favorites below! <> 1/11FeyFor my money, one of the most habitually underrepresented creature types in D&D is the Fey. No, creatures like Sprites, Pixies and Satyrs aren’t typically evil, but there’s no reason they couldn’t become rather territorial to a group of adventurers stomping through their woods killing spiders and wolves. 1/11GithUnlike most races on this list, the Gith are enemies meant for higher level characters to tackle, but considering your pals don’t tap out at level 5, that should actually be pretty useful. Though they don’t typically hang out in mortal planes too often, it shouldn’t be too hard to come up with a reason for your characters to run up against the evil Githyanki or the more neutral Githzerai. 1/11GnollsGnolls are one of my absolute favorite Dungeons & Dragons races and it’s not just because I like saying the name. They’re basically evil hyena men with demonic magic. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, they’re also massive, growing to a hulking 7 and a half feet tall. Best of all, the Monster Manual has a variety of Gnoll types, from the ½ CR standard-issue, to the 4 CR Gnoll Fang of Yeenoghu. 1/11HumansIt might seem weird to place Humans on a list like this, but Dungeon Masters often overlook the vast amount of options for human NPCs and enemies at the back of the Monster Manual. You could have a Cult Fanatic and her flock of Cultists, a Druid and an army of assorted blights and awakened plants, a Berserker accompanied by Tribal Warriors, or any combination of the above! 1/11KoboldsKobolds are a Dungeons & Dragons standby, but they don’t get anywhere near the love of Goblins and Orcs, likely because they never showed up in a Tolkien book. While they don’t have as many varieties as other creatures, the reptilian Kobolds come in both winged and non-winged fights, both of which boast pack tactics, which can make for some pretty exciting combat situations. 1/11Kuo-ToaLike the Gith, Kuo-Toa are Underdark dwellers that were once enslaved by the mind flayers. What makes these fish-men so fun, however, is that they’re absolutely bugnuts insane, making up their own bonkers gods that, through their power of their subconscious minds, can actually physically manifest themselves in the real world. 1/11LizardfolkLike Kobolds, Lizardfolk are reptilian in nature, but they boast much more well-developed societies, albeit ones that are completely amoral. They’re extremely territorial though, which should give you plenty of excuses for your player characters to run up against an army of Lizardfolks, their Shamans and perhaps, even their King or Queen. 1/11ModronsSo, in all likelihood, early on in you campaigns, players probably won’t be visiting the plane of Mechanus, which is where the Modrons make their home. But if they do, or if you think of a way to get these little robotic cuties onto their plane, they could make for some great, bizarre enemies, as each subtype is restricted to a certain number of activities it’s capable of performing. 1/11SahauginBoth Kuo-Toa and Sahaugin are evil fish-people, but there’s an important difference. While the Kuo-Toa are a nutty, wacky kind of evil, the Sahaugin are a vicious, terrible, invade-shoreline-areas type of evil. Their Monster Manual entry is also fully fleshed out, giving you access to a fighter, a priestess and a ruler, making for a pretty nasty war party. 1/11Thri-kreenThough they’re best known from their considerable presence in the world of Athas, as seen in the Dark Sun campaign setting, Thri-Kreen also warrant a page in the standard 5th Edition Monster Manual. Best of all, the help the insectoids feel even more alien, the entry also includes several Thri-Kreen specific weapons, as well as some psionic abilities. 1/11Yuan-TiAnd finally, we come to the Yuan-Ti, a fancy way of saying something rather simple: Snake People. The coolest thing about the Yuan-Ti is that the Monster Manual offers up lots of different snake-person combos, from the almost all snake Abominations to three different varieties of blended Malisons to the almost completely human looking Purebloods.center_img There you have it: Eleven different ways to mix up the mobs that your players will be facing in Dungeons & Dragons.
