The Royal Mail share price: what’s next for the stock?

first_imgThe Royal Mail share price: what’s next for the stock? Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… The Royal Mail (LSE: RMG) share price has surpassed my expectations over the past 12 months. Since hitting a multi-year low of around 119p in March of last year, the stock has jumped 250%. Pandemic growth It seems to me that the coronavirus pandemic has led to a significant improvement in investor sentiment towards the business. For years, Royal Mail struggled with falling letter volumes and revenues, which had impacted profitability and sales. The pandemic exacerbated the decline in letter volumes but, on the flip side, it also led to a substantial increase in parcel volumes. 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…The company rose to the challenge. The introduction of automated parcel sorting machines helped improve efficiency. Meanwhile, the introduction of a parcel pick-up service billed as “one of the biggest changes to the daily delivery since the launch of the post box in 1852,” seems to have been well received. Thanks to these changes, Royal Mail’s outlook has substantially improved. This time last year, analysts were expecting the company to report earnings per share of 11p for 2021. Today, that figure is 25p. To me, these figures show that Royal Mail has been able to take advantage of the changing shopping habits driven by the pandemic. Doing so looks to me as if the business has been able to overcome the challenges it has faced in the past. What’s next for the Royal Mail share priceThe big question is, what happens next? It seems to me the primary reason why the stock has performed so well over the past 12 months is the fact analysts now think the company will return to growth in 2021/22. Unfortunately, it now looks as if much of this potential is already factored into the current share price. Indeed, shares in the organisation are currently changing hands at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of around 16, falling to 14 for 2021.However, in the past five years, the stock has struggled to get above a 10 times forward earnings valuation. To put it another way, it looks to me as if shares in the group are overvalued by 60% to 40% at current levels. That being said, Royal Mail has surpassed all expectations over the past 12 months. As such, I wouldn’t rule out further growth from the company in the near term. If the group can develop and consolidate its position in the parcel market, I reckon it’s highly likely the Royal Mail share price could continue to move higher. Therefore, I’m cautiously optimistic about the company’s future potential. As the e-commerce market’s size continues to grow, demand for Royal Mail’s services may also continue to increase. That could lead to further earnings upgrades. On that basis, I’d continue to own the stock in my portfolio, even after its recent positive performance.  Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Authorities step up harassment of independent news centre

first_img Help by sharing this information The Cuban authorities are waging a campaign to intimidate Hablemos Press, a Havana-based independent news centre, presumably because of its criticism of the government. In the past three months, 14 of its correspondents have been threatened and 10 have been briefly detained on at least one occasion. October 12, 2018 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Cuba News Receive email alerts CubaAmericas CubaAmericas May 6, 2020 Find out more Organisation July 1, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities step up harassment of independent news centrecenter_img News According to Hablemos Press director Roberto Jesús Guerra Pérez, the situation began to deteriorate during the 6th Congress of the Cuban Communist party in April, when new economic and social measures were announced. Security agents banned journalists from leaving home throughout the congress, Guerra said.The hounding of Hablemos Press is typical of the plight of independent journalists in Cuba, where civil liberties are universally flouted. A new crackdown has been launched on anyone trying to express dissident views. Journalists are being subject to repeated arrests and brief spells in detention with the aim of reducing them to silence.“The measures announced during the 6th Congress must be accompanied by an opening-up on human rights and democracy issues,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call for the legalization of independent media that are not controlled by the state, an end to the criminalization of dissident views, access for all Cubans to an unfiltered Internet and the repeal of all laws that restrict media freedom. The government must also honour its international obligations by ratifying the two UN conventions on civil and political rights that it signed in 2008.”“This is a psychological war,” Guerra said, referring to the harassment of journalists. “They are trying to silence us by means of death threats, incitement to leave the country with our families, and repeated detention and interrogation, often lasting more than four hours at a stretch.”According to a report that Guerra provided to Reporters Without Borders, the legal basis on which many independent journalists have been arrested and detained is a provision of Law 88 on the Protection of National Independence and the Cuban Economy, also known as the “gag law.” Under this provision, anyone who is deemed to have caused serious harm to the economy by cooperating with foreign media can be sentenced to two to eight years in prison. Many journalists were arrested under the same provision during the “Black Spring” of 2003.Calixto Ramos Martínez Arias, who has been a Hablemos Press correspondent since 2009, was arrested twice in May. The second time he was arrested, on 16 May, he spent 75 hours in police custody on the orders of a state security official, although no grounds were given. After destroying his ID card, the state security official said he would shoot Martínez in the head the next time he saw him in the police station. Martínez was repeatedly deported from Havana to Camaguey in 2010 because of his journalistic work.Jorge Alberto Liriano Linares, the Hablemos Press correspondent in Camagüey, was physically attacked by state security agents while covering a demonstration organized by the Carlos Manuel de Céspedes Human Rights Union in 3 June, suffering bruising to the ribs and cuts to the face and body. He was then held for eight hour in a state security unit, where he received no medical treatment. He says he was subjected to “psychological torture and systematic mistreatment.”Carlos Ríos Otero and Sandra Guerra have been threatened by both state security agents and members of the national police in Havana. Ríos has been arrested twice. Guerra was detained for more than 48 hours in her home by a total of 20 agents. Stones were thrown at the home of Jaime Leygonier Fernández after he wrote an article that was very critical of the government.

Gutiérrez was arrested on 17 and 22 June while covering dissident Jorge Cervantes’ hunger strike in Santiago de Cuba. Díaz was arrested in Guantánamo, where he was also physically attacked by government supporters during the 6th Congress. Alas was arrested in Cielo de Avila.Magaly Norvis Otero Suárez, a journalist who works for both Hablemos Press and Miami-based Radio Martí, was insulted on 7 June, She also keeps a blog in which she reports arbitrary arrests and other human rights abuses.Four prisoners – Alexander Suárez Torres, Carlos Amir Cárdenas Cartava, Jorge Félix Otero Morales and Ramón Arias Acosta – suffered a deterioration in prison conditions after providing Hablemos Press with information. Suárez and Cárdenas were transferred from Havana to prisons in Camagüey. Otero and Arias were confined to punishment cells.Finally, the dissident cyber-journalist Guillermo Fariñas, winner of the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought in 2010, was detained yet again on 27 May and was held for 12 hours at the provincial police operations headquarters along with 11 other dissidents.The Cuban people are still denied the right to receive and impart information and several journalists have been forced to leave the country. On World Refugee Day on 20 June, Reporters Without Borders paid tribute to those journalists who, after being forced to flee their country, continue to work as journalists and thereby defy those who tried to silence them.In this report, entitled “Forced to flee but not silenced – exile media fight on,” Reporters Without Borders interviewed refugee journalists from all parts of the world, including Cuba, with the aim of helping to make their voices heard. last_img read more

Cyber-dissident Zhang Lin released on completing five-year jail term

first_img RSF_en August 18, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Cyber-dissident Zhang Lin released on completing five-year jail term Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes April 27, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders welcomes the release of the well-known blogger and pro-democracy activist Zhang Lin on 12 August on completing a five-year sentence for posting articles online that were deemed to be “contrary to the bases of the constitution” and “a danger to national security.”“We are glad that Zhang Lin has been able to rejoin his wife and family,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His release is a relief but we cannot forget the other prisoners of opinion held by the Chinese government and we urge the authorities to free all the journalists and bloggers who have been convicted for using their right to free expression under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which China has signed.”Arrested illegally on 29 January 2005 in the eastern province of Anhui, where is from, Zhang was initially placed in “administrative detention.” He was then accused of threatening the country’s security by means of the articles he posted online and was given the five-year sentence on 14 October 2005.Zhang often posted articles on websites linked to the Falun Gong spiritual movement such as Dajiyuan.com and Epochtimes.com, as well as Boxun.com, a website about human rights in China. He was imprisoned from 1989 to 1991, and again from 1995 to 1998, when he was sentenced to hard labour. He then left for the United States to pursue his political activities, but reentered China clandestinely a few months later and was rearrested a third time, at which point he was sent to a labour camp until 2001. In all, he has spent 13 years in detention.At least 59 cyber-dissidents and 30 journalists are currently held in China in violation of the right to free expression. The latest bloggers to be detained include Ilham Tohti and Tan Zuoren. Their imprisonment is direct evidence of the censorship practiced by the Chinese government.

FG and FF both set to lose seats in Donegal Electoral Area

first_imgSitting Fine Gael Councillors Barry O’Neill and John Boyle face a tense few hours at the Donegal Electoral Area count in the St John Bosco Centre in Donegal Town, with suggestions that the final outcome will be three independents, and one each from Fianna Fail, Sinn Fein and Fine Gael.Who takes that Fine Gael seat is the question. With a tally of 1056 votes, Barry O’Neill is ahead of his party colleague by around 200 votes, but transfer patterns will be vital. Fine Gael’s third candidate John Mc Nulty has around 800 votes, and may transfer more to Boyle than O’Neill.There is another option, the nightmare for Fine Gael. Fianna Fail’s Brendan Byrne is currently at around 1,028, and is in danger of losing his seat. His difficulty will be attracting transfers, but if he can do, he could sneak that last seat, leaving Fine Gael without a seat. That, however, is seen as unlikely, and Fine Gael should take the last seat. Who takes it is another question, which at the moment is too close to call.

A California man mourns his beloved dog — until he gets a shocking phone call

first_imgiStock(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — A California man who was heartbroken when he brought his deceased dog to the shelter to be cremated was overcome with joy when he received an unexpected message on his phone.Ralph Johnson of Sacramento was working at home last week when his dog Cognac wandered off and disappeared. Johnson searched the area, but Cognac could not be found.The next day when he resumed his search, he found a dog on the side of the road that had been hit and killed.“The tears just started flowing,” Johnson told Sacramento ABC affiliate KXTV. “It’s my first dog. I had never experienced it.”Johnson took the dog to the Sacramento SPCA to have it cremated.“I was a wreck,” he said.Then, just a few days later, Johnson got an unexpected message from a staffer at the Front Street Animal Shelter.They said they had found Cognac.“I said, ‘He’s alive? What do you mean he’s alive?’” Johnson recalled, per KXTV.It turned out that while the dog Johnson discovered by the roadside looked just like Cognac, it wasn’t him. Instead, Cognac ended up at the local animal shelter, where they scanned him for a microchip.Johnson arrived at the shelter the next morning before the doors were even open. The shelter staff let him in and brought out Cognac.“He pulled the guy across the room and jumped in my arms,” Johnson said. “I’m hugging him, and I thought the whole place was going to erupt into applause.”Johnson credits Cognac’s return to the microchip he had implanted when he adopted Cognac last year.“Microchip is the reason we were reunited,” Johnson said. “That was his saving grace, that’s how I got him back.”“We had a gentleman who loved his pet; he thought there was a tragedy and he’d lost his pet,” said Bobby Mann of the Front Street Animal Shelter. “The story is really priceless.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

QAnon’s growth mirrors sharp spike in far-right extremist violence in US: Experts

first_imgCenter for Strategic and International StudiesBY: CHRIS FRANCESCANI, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — Experts who track extremist ideologies and movements as well as domestic terrorism in the U.S. say QAnon is a unique and unpredictable new strain of extremism in America’s far-right political landscape.The conspiracy theory imagines that President Donald Trump is secretly battling a global network of evil elites, Democrats, celebrities and their “deep state” bureaucratic counterparts — a dizzying conspiratorial alliance of thousands of American citizens who, behind closed doors, are believed to be closeted Satan-worshipping pedophiles who traffic, abuse and sacrifice children, and their enablers.Past and present far-right extremist movements in the U.S. are “much more anti-government in their perspective,” said Donald Haider-Markel, a University of Kansas political science professor who studies domestic extremism.“What’s weird about today is that if they are anti-government like QAnon, it’s about a ‘deep state,’ this second government,” he said. “Typically, on the far right, they’re wildly opposed to a strong federal government. But this doesn’t look like that. This is, in fact, a defense of what they see as their government.”Haider-Markel and other experts said QAnon’s penetration of mainstream American culture and politics is unprecedented in the modern political era for a far-right extremist conspiracy theory.“The closest thing I could compare it to is [that] this is the way anti-Communism spread,” he said. “Certainly, many people wouldn’t call that extremism, but that brand developed its own extremism, whether it be the John Birch Society or the tactics of McCarthyism in the U.S. Senate. But that… all-or-nothing anti-Communism in the context of the Cold War really is the closest thing to compare this to.”At the start of the Cold War in the 1950s, Wisconsin Sen. Joseph McCarthy and the John Birch Society were both at the forefront of a hunt for Soviet spies and Communist-sympathizers in America which verged on paranoia, a period scholars describe as the nation’s second “Red scare” of the 20th century.Brian Friedberg, a senior researcher at Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Affairs, who studies the impact of political disinformation from alternative media and anonymous groups, agreed that QAnon is unique among far-right extremists.“I jokingly call this authoritarian libertarianism — where there’s a libertarian streak of personal freedom and individuality that runs through these communities… exemplified by anonymous postings [and] the whole freedom of speech without consequences,” he said. “But they’re pining for this authoritarian figure who can do no wrong.”“A lot of these people before [QAnon] used to be just racist libertarians,” Friedberg added.‘Fighters for Trump’Like other researchers who spoke with ABC News, Friedberg said he has observed a growing and emboldened militancy among some of QAnon’s followers as the phenomenon has spread and expanded throughout Trump’s first term — especially this year, as QAnon has invaded mainstream American culture and politics.“One of the most disturbing things I noticed was QAnon folks marching with the Proud Boys,” he said, referring to a far-right white identity group that has clashed frequently with Black Lives Matter demonstrators across the nation this year. “That, to me, is the future.”“Previously in the alt right era — [from] 2016 up until [the 2017] Charlottesville [neo-Nazi protests] — you had the Trumpian kids on [the website] 4chan, who were called Kekistan… who would march with the colors and symbols they have… their fake flag, their fake nation. They would march with alt-right groups and militia groups at various protests around the country. It was largely considered dumb, larky,” he said.“They were made fun of by the right and the left. You know, ‘Go back to your mom’s basement,’ that kind of stuff,” Friedberg said. “But then [recently], I saw one guy in particular with one of these [QAnon slogan] shields [symbolically] painted green that had nails coming out of it.”Last year, a declassified FBI field office internal memo declared conspiracy theory movements like QAnon potential domestic terror threats, and last month, the Combating Terror Center at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, published a research paper which asserts that QAnon “represents a militant and anti-establishment ideology [which] finds resonance with other far-right extremist movements.”‘Some extremists may use violence’The spread of QAnon parallels a dramatic increase in recent years in far-right domestic terror plots and attacks, according to a June analysis by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) of nearly 900 domestic terrorism incidents and plots over the past 25 years.The CSIS analysis concluded that right-wing extremists perpetrated two-thirds of the attacks and plots in the U.S. in 2019, and more than 90% between Jan. 1 and May 8, 2020.The report — which, according to its lead author, will be updated in September to cover the summer months — suggests that Trump losing the election in November could trigger far-right violence.“As U.S. Department of Justice documents have highlighted, some far-right extremists have referred to themselves as ‘Trumpenkriegers’ — or ‘fighters for Trump,’” it said. “If President Trump loses the election, some extremists may use violence because they believe — however incorrectly — that there was fraud or that the election of Democratic candidate Joe Biden will undermine their extremist objectives.”Haider-Markel said that the CSIS analysis is consistent with decades of studies on the rise of far-right violence in modern America.“General right-wing terrorism is responsible for more attacks in the United States since 9/11 than any other group, movement or ideology… whether you compare it to jihadis or the left wing,” he said, adding that the past two years represent “the biggest growth of extremist group activity since the 9/11 attacks.”It’s the same conclusion QAnon experts have reached after looking at legions of QAnon Trump supporters and their actions.“If Trump loses, there is a massive crisis within Q[Anon] when that happens,” said Fredrick Brennan, the creator of 8chan — the anonymous imageboard site where “Q drops” first appeared in 2017.Brennan relinquished control of the site several years ago, disillusioned by the growing rhetorical violence and hate speech on the site’s board. He is now an active critic of QAnon, who tracks the spread of the movement. He contends that a loss for Trump in November could have significant ramifications for the QAnon movement.“If Trump loses, I think that how a lot of people are going to view it is: the deep state has won. Trump has lost. Our god, essentially, has been crucified,” he said. Because, “Trump is — for many of them — a god, and they are going to punish Democrats on the other side with political violence. That’s what I see happening.”‘Bottom up’Like all forms of domestic extremism in the digital age, QAnon poses a raft of challenges to law enforcement and homeland security agencies.“Here’s the big issue: QAnon is symptomatic of what is a very decentralized domestic extremist landscape in the U.S.,” said Seth Jones, the CSIS analysis’ lead author and a former director of the International Security and Defense Policy Center at RAND Corporation.“It’s going to be very difficult for the U.S. government over the foreseeable future to get its hands on this, because it’s not like killing Osama bin Laden or Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,” he said, referring to the former leader of al Qaeda and the former leader of the Islamic State, both whom were killed by U.S. forces.“There’s no head to chop off,” he said. “This is a bottom-up, not a top-down movement.”Both Jones and Haider-Markel agreed that the gun rights movements that took root in the 1990s has intensified both the nature and the visibility of the far-right extremist threat.“In one form or another, [the] open carry [law] is legal in most states now, so that people can show up at events with firearms in many places,” Haider-Markel said.A separate report that CSIS released in July reported that despite a 50% drop in terrorism globally between 2014 and 2019, U.S. domestic terrorism rose 141% during that period. Citing data from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), the July report concluded that the number of firearm background checks for gun purchases in the U.S. has spiked to its highest level ever in 2020, reaching nearly 4 million in June 2020.One leading QAnon researcher said his greatest fear is that QAnon’s relentless momentum combined with a Trump reelection could normalize QAnon’s outrageous far-right extremist conspiracy theories.Like some prominent QAnon critics who have faced severe harassment online, this researcher asked to be identified only by his Twitter handle, @dappergander, and his region, New England.“With all these people running for Congress who say they believe in QAnon, my real fear is the moment when someone says, ‘Do you think we really could arrest all the Democrats? We already have a built-in base of support for that that’s terminally online,’” the researcher said.“And I don’t think we’re going to get there… but even that conversation happening behind closed doors is really dangerous,” he said. “And if, God forbid, in 2022 even more QAnon people run for office to the point where it’s going to be like the Tea Party, and there’s now a QAnon caucus in Washington?”At least 24 candidates who have “endorsed or given credence to the conspiracy theory or promoted QAnon content” — 22 Republicans and two independents — having secured a spot on the ballot in the 2020 congressional elections, according to the media watchdog Media Matters, although it’s unclear how many actually have a chance to win their elections. Last month, one candidate who pollsters say is almost certain to win her heavily GOP district in Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene, appeared to rescind her previous support for QAnon, telling Fox News that “once I started finding misinformation, I decided that I would choose another path.”Earlier this month, the former chief of intelligence at the Department of Homeland Security filed a whistleblower complaint alleging that the Trump administration sought to “censor or manipulate” intelligence for political purposes, including downplaying the threats of Russian meddling in the 2020 election, and the threat of violence from far-right extremism.ABC News’ Nicholas Tucker contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Molecular phylogeny of coleoid cephalopods (Mollusca: Cephalopoda) inferred from three mitochondrial and six nuclear loci: a comparison of alignment, implied alignment and analysis methods

first_imgRecent molecular studies investigating higher-level phylogenetics of coleoid cephalopods (octopuses, squids and cuttlefishes) have produced conflicting results. A wide range of sequence alignment and analysis methods are used in cephalopod phylogenetic studies. The present study investigated the effect of commonly used alignment and analysis methods on higher-level cephalopod phylogenetics. Two sequence homology methods: (1) eye alignment, (2) implied alignment, and three analysis methods: (1) parsimony, (2) maximum likelihood, (3) Bayesian methodologies, were employed on the longest sequence dataset available for the coleoid cephalopods, comprising three mitochondrial and six nuclear loci. The data were also tested for base composition heterogeneity, which was detected in three genes and resolved using RY coding. The Octopoda, Argonautoidea, Oegopsida and Ommastrephidae are monophyletic in the phylogenies resulting from each of the alignment and analysis combinations. Furthermore, the Bathyteuthidae are the sister taxon of the Oegopsida in each case. However many relationships within the Coleoidea differed depending upon the alignment and analysis method used. This study demonstrates how differences in alignment and analysis methods commonly used in cephalopod phylogenetics can lead to different, but often highly supported, relationships.last_img read more

Lockheed Martin Modernizes Air Operations Capabilities for U.S. Marine Corps

first_img View post tag: Martin View post tag: Operations Back to overview,Home naval-today Lockheed Martin Modernizes Air Operations Capabilities for U.S. Marine Corps View post tag: air The Theater Battle Management Core System (TBMCS) within the U.S. Marine Corps Tactical Air Command Center was upgraded with the Marine Corps Air Mission Planner application to provide the Marines with a modernized mission planning application to better plan and execute aviation operations.Developed by Lockheed Martin, TBMCS is the primary system for coordinating and executing the air campaign. It links the command and control systems for the United States Air Force, United States Navy, and United States Marine Corps, and integrates with ground systems for the Army systems, enabling coordinated, synchronized air battle management.“Replacing 18 years of legacy applications was a challenge,” said Dr. Rob Smith, vice president of C4ISR for Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Solutions. “By collaborating with the Marines on a regular basis we provided a system with the functionality that met all their expectations.”The TBMCS system integrates a full range of intelligence, targeting, and airspace deconfliction applications that support coordination of precision engagement fires, safe passage and near real-time warnings of threats. For the Marine Corps, Lockheed Martin updated the airborne command and control capabilities that produce air tasking orders that coordinate flying operations for fighters, cargo planes, helicopters, and unmanned aerial vehicles. By replacing 1.5 million lines of legacy code with 500K lines of modernized code, the updated planner offers the USMC improved capabilities for planning, tasking, and coordinating their air operations.In a joint development test consisting of Marines, Navy, Army and Air Force personnel, the Marine Corps Air Mission Planner was formally evaluated in March 2014 at the Ryan Center at Langley, AFB in Virginia. The planner successfully passed the most rigorous test environment that TBMCS had seen in several years.[mappress]Press Release, June 12, 2014; Image: Lockheed Martin The system that allows the U.S. Marines to coordinate flying operations for all air assets has been modernized by Lockheed Martin.

Timeless Rock Classic?

first_imgThe Datsuns Outta Sight/Outta Mind The brazen simplicity of The Datsuns’ self-titled first album (2002) seemed cleverly-timed. Not being modish, knowing or subtle made them attractive to rock fans seeking spanking riffs without an overdose of thought. And after two years of touring, their second studio album reveals that The Datsuns really weren’t joking – they just like rock music. Outta Sight/Outta Mind begins with ‘Blacken My Thumb.’ With a relentless tempo and throwaway riffing, it’s a good summary of what they do. As you listen to the eleven subsequent tracks on the album, it becomes clear that they don’t do much else. Bossy vocals and riffdriven arrangements will certainly be enough to satisfy those listeners looking for a return to the days when a rock and roll attitude was nothing to be ashamed of. But they seem to be taking their influences more seriously this time. They have ex-Led Zeppelin band member John Paul Jones producing. Despite this promising collaboration, their take on classic rock has regressed from their early-career highlight ‘Harmonic Generator.’ They also claim to offer a more considered attitude to songwriting. Lead singer Dolf de Datsun (real name Rudolph de Borst) describes Outta Sight/Outta Mind as “an album of stories.” But lyrics are not as carefully constructed as this might suggest; instead, they sing loudly about some things that have happened to them. He is even honest about their flightiness, describing the band as “constantly running from one drama or another.” Light relief can be found in ‘Girls Best Friend’. This song and “What I’ve lost” distinguish themselves by offering some lyrical depth. Dolf has commented, “I really love the idea that albums can be time capsules, that when you listen to that album you hear where the band were at, at that point in time.” Anyone digging up Outta Sight/Outta Mindsome time in the future would struggle to discover much at all about where The Datsuns were ‘at’. As Dolf reminds us in ‘Messin’ Around,’ “If it’s pure and it’s simple, doesn’t make it right.” A variation on a theme is fine but the Datsuns fail to provide enough interest to make their high-intensity guitar sound worthwhile over the course of an album.ARCHIVE: 6th week TT 2004last_img read more

Vice-Chancellor slams safe-space culture

first_imgOxford Vice-Chancellor Louise Richardson has hit out at the “cosseted” culture of university ‘safe-spaces’ and ‘no platform’ policies.In an interview for the Irish Times, Richardson said: “It may be that middle-class children have been too cosseted by their professional parents.“It may be in part accentuated in social media where we tend to operate within an echo chamber of like-minded people,” she said.This reflects comments made by the Vice-Chancellor last year, in which she called on students to engage with ideas they don’t agree with.In an interview with the Daily Telegraph after her appointment as the University’s highest-ranking executive officer in January 2016, she said: “We need to expose our students to ideas that make them uncomfortable so that they can think about why it is that they feel uncomfortable and what it is about those ideas that they object to.”In the Irish Times interview Richardson also expressed concerns over the impact of Brexit on Oxford University. She described the University’s academic staff as “eminently poachable” as a result of Britain’s planned exit from the EU.According to the Oxford University statement on Brexit, 18 per cent of Oxford’s staff and 16 per cent of its students are from the EU.An Irish national, she revealed that she had applied for a British passport before the EU referendum last year.“To be perfectly honest I started the process of applying for British citizenship in anticipation of Brexit because I thought it could be difficult if I found myself as Vice- Chancellor of Oxford without the right to remain,” she said. Richardson’s comments come after Oxford University was deemed a “hostile environment for free speech” by the online politics magazine Spiked in February.The magazine cited OUSU’s ban of pro-life groups and the prevention of the student magazine No Offence from being handed out at the 2015 freshers’ fair as its justification.In a statement, the University said that it considers freedom of speech to be “the lifeblood of a university”.In March, Universities Minister Jo Johnson wrote a letter to be disseminated to all universities outlining his desire to restrict censorship.Johnson said: “The government proposes to raise the issue of freedom of speech, with a view to ensuring that a principle underscoring the importance of free speech in higher education is given due consideration.”last_img read more

Inter Link boss quits to restore monastery

first_imgCake company Inter Link moved to calm anxiety in the City this week, following the sudden resignation of chief executive Paul Griffiths.Griffiths left immediately to focus on private and charitable interests, including the £7m restoration of Gorton Monastery in Manchester, which he hopes to turn into a venue for concerts and events.The news came a week after Alternative Investment Market listed Inter Link revealed a private equity house had approached it with a bid to take it private (British Baker, 22 September, pg 12). Firms said to be interested include 3i, Hg Capital and LDC.Non-executive director Jeremy Hamer told British Baker the management changes will not affect these discussions, which are expected to conclude in the next month.He said: “It was a surprise to us when Paul decided that he wanted to spend time away from the business world. It is a big change, but Alwin Thompson, Inter Link’s executive chairman, has always been very hands on, and there will be continuity at the top.”Chris Thompson, previously finance director, has been appointed interim chief executive and may take the position permanently, Hamer said. The firm will also strengthen its senior finance team.Hamer emphasised: “We have an executive chairman, the founder of the company who still runs the company to a very large degree.”Paul Griffiths, 53, was appointed as Inter Link chief executive in September 2003. He grew up in Gorton and served as an altar boy at the monastery. He had been thinking about leaving his £200,000-a-year post for some time, he said.last_img read more

From a flat mirror, designer light

first_imgExploiting a novel technique called phase discontinuity, researchers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have induced light rays to behave in a way that defies the centuries-old laws of reflection and refraction.The discovery, published Sept. 2 in the journal Science, has led to a reformulation of the mathematical laws that predict the path of a ray of light bouncing off a surface or traveling from one medium into another — for example, from air into glass.“Using designer surfaces, we’ve created the effects of a fun-house mirror on a flat plane,” said co-principal investigator Federico Capasso, Robert L. Wallace Professor of Applied Physics and Vinton Hayes Senior Research Fellow in Electrical Engineering at SEAS. “Our discovery carries optics into new territory and opens the door to exciting developments in photonics technology.”It has been recognized since ancient times that light travels at different speeds through different media. Reflection and refraction occur whenever light encounters a material at an angle, because one side of the beam is able to race ahead of the other. As a result, the wave front changes direction.The conventional laws, taught in physics classrooms worldwide, predict the angles of reflection and refraction based only on the incident (incoming) angle and the properties of the two media.While studying the behavior of light impinging on surfaces patterned with metallic nanostructures, the researchers realized that the usual equations were insufficient to describe the bizarre phenomena observed in the lab.The new generalized laws, derived and experimentally demonstrated at Harvard, take into account the Capasso group’s discovery that the boundary between two media, if specially patterned, can itself behave like a third medium.“Ordinarily, a surface like the surface of a pond is simply a geometric boundary between two media, air and water,” said lead author Nanfang Yu, Ph.D. ’09, a research associate in Capasso’s lab at SEAS. “But now, in this special case, the boundary becomes an active interface that can bend the light by itself.”The key component is an array of tiny gold antennas etched into the surface of the silicon used in Capasso’s lab. The array is structured on a scale much thinner than the wavelength of the light hitting it. This means that, unlike in a conventional optical system, the engineered boundary between the air and the silicon imparts an abrupt phase shift — dubbed “phase discontinuity” — to the crests of the light wave crossing it.Each antenna in the array is a tiny resonator that can trap the light, holding its energy for a given amount of time before releasing it. A gradient of different types of nanoscale resonators across the surface of the silicon can effectively bend the light before it even begins to propagate through the new medium.The resulting phenomenon breaks the old rules, creating beams of light that reflect and refract in arbitrary ways, depending on the surface pattern.In order to generalize the textbook laws of reflection and refraction, the Harvard researchers added a new term to the equations, representing the gradient of phase shifts imparted at the boundary. Importantly, in the absence of a surface gradient, the new laws reduce to the well-known ones.“By incorporating a gradient of phase discontinuities across the interface, the laws of reflection and refraction become designer laws, and a panoply of new phenomena appear,” said Zeno Gaburro, a visiting scholar in Capasso’s group who was co-principal investigator for this work. “The reflected beam can bounce backward instead of forward. You can create negative refraction. There is a new angle of total internal reflection.”Nanfang Yu, Zeno Gaburro, Federico Capasso, and colleagues at SEAS have created strange optical effects, including corkscrew-like vortex beams, by reflecting light off a flat, nanostructured surface. Image courtesy of Nanfang Yu/SEASMoreover, the frequency (color), amplitude (brightness), and polarization of the light can also be controlled, meaning that the output is in essence a designer beam.The researchers have already succeeded at producing a vortex beam (a helical, corkscrew-shaped stream of light) from a flat surface. They also envision flat lenses that could focus an image without aberrations.Yu, Capasso, and Gaburro’s co-authors included Patrice Genevet, Mikhail A. Kats, Francesco Aieta, and Jean-Philippe Tetienne.The research was supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the NSF-funded Harvard Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center, the Center for Nanoscale Systems at Harvard (part of the NSF-funded National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network), the European Communities Seventh Framework Programme, and the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences’ Science Division Research Computing Group.last_img read more

Costa Rica: Coast Guard invests in infrastructure, technology

first_imgBy Dialogo July 18, 2012 SAN JOSÉ, Costa Rica – The Costa Rican National Coast Guard Service (SNG) is on a building spree, aiming to open 12 bases along the Pacific and Caribbean coasts by the end of the year, said SNG Director Martín Arias. “We are going to have buildings that are modern and comfortable for our people and close to the communities they work with,” he added. “What the National Police Force does in security work, we are also going to have in our communities.” The SNG, which celebrated the 12th anniversary of its founding in May, has seized more than 30 tons of drugs since 2005 – an amount Arias said is roughly equivalent to US$500 million in profits taken away from international narco-trafficking organizations. The SNG seized more than five tons of narcotics between May 2011 and May 2012. “Thirty tons is an important achievement and I believe the country should feel very confident in a service like ours,” Arias said. The SNG’s growth, in terms of both new stations and new boats in the national fleet, has been funded in part by approximately US$5.5 million in aid from the United States, according to the Public Security Ministry. Of the US$5.5 million, US$3.5 million went toward building an SNG station in Puerto Caldera on the Pacific Coast that opened this past March. The United States also donated two high-tech interceptor boats worth about US$1.8 million. Arias said the SNG spent US$1.2 million to purchase seven interceptor boats from Colombia, with four having already arrived in the Central American nation. The agency is investing US$650,000 to rebuild an older patrol boat as part of a US$3.3 million investment to develop its fleet this year. “We’re looking hard at our coastal fleet,” Arias said. “We’re looking to improve our smaller boats and our interceptor boats, as well as restoring patrol boats that haven’t been used in years.” Arias said the SNG recently opened a new station on the Northern Caribbean Coast near the estuary of the Pacuare River, giving security forces access to the Tortuguero Canals, which have been used by narco-traffickers and poachers who snatch sea turtle eggs. The SNG is building a US$900,000 facility to be inaugurated near the end of August at the Caribbean shipping port in Moín. The SNG also is planning to build a station in the town of Sixaola, near the Panamanian border, Arias said. On the Pacific Coast, the SNG is expected to build a station near the town of Drake and another station, which is part of a joint project with the Environment Ministry, at Puerto Coyote. In November, the Environment Ministry and the Public Security Ministry (MSP) signed an accord to cooperate in the protection of Costa Rica’s marine resources with a focus on illegal fishing. “We are going to open a new Coast Guard station in Nandayure, which is an area where we’ve had little presence,” Arias said. “And in July, we’re going to lay the first stone of the Coast Guard station in Flamingo, in Santa Cruz, which represents an investment of US$1.25 million financed by the government of the United States.” Arias added the SNG would be investing in improvements in a station near Murciélago, close to the Nicaraguan border. Public Security Minister Mario Zamora said the SNG currently has about 44 boats stationed along the Pacific and Caribbean coasts. “The Coast Guard also is in the process of incorporating new technologies, specifically the placement of radar stations, on the Pacific and Atlantic coasts,” Zamora said. Zamora said the SNG will also be adding GPS units to patrol boats, enabling command centers to monitor the status of boats on the high sea. The units will help conserve fuel and ensure captains are patrolling assigned areas. “Today, there are manual systems and the captain of the ships can do what they desire to do,” he added. “With these technological systems, we’re going to incorporate important levels of internal controls.”last_img read more

2017 CUNA Volunteer Conference includes key partners

first_imgCUNA will partner with the World Council of Credit Unions and the Caribbean Confederation of Credit Unions (CCCU) for the CUNA Volunteer Conference, Jan. 15-17, in Montego Bay, Jamaica.Through the arrangement, CUNA, World Council and CCCU will work to get Caribbean credit union volunteers involved in the conference.“What’s exciting about this cooperation is that it allows us to expand the traditional audience for CUNA Volunteer Conference,” said Michelle Johnson, Instructional Design Manager at CUNA.“We can’t wait to see the unique perspectives that Caribbean volunteers will bring to the conference and look forward to providing them with meaningful professional value through its expert-led sessions, discussions and networking.”The cooperative relationship between the three organizations will focus on using CUNA Volunteer Conference to provide quality education to volunteers in the Caribbean region. For their part, WOCCU and CCCU will promote the conference to Caribbean credit unions and actively recruit board representatives from the region to attend. continue reading » 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

So, in the name of research (and maybe just to help myself feel better), I asked a few college students about their biggest financial concerns. Here’s what they said:Chapel, 22: “I’m probably just worried about being taken advantage of, somehow or some way. I feel pretty good about managing my spending habits, but when it comes to other stuff — credit cards, loans, where I’m working with someone else — I’m worried my lack of experience could lead to me getting screwed over.”Hannah, 20: “My biggest financial concern at this current time is having to pay rent. With no steady income coming in due to the coronavirus, $650 per month is a lot along with groceries and utilities.”Carly, 22: “I’m worried about not having enough in savings to cover emergencies, like car trouble or medical bills.”Brian, 21: “I’ve only been able to support myself in college through a very large but also very finite amount of money given to me by family members. I’m worried that I will be screwed once that runs out, and I’m not being paid much by wherever I’m currently working.”Mac, 18: ”I’m scared of doing or acting in something, and not knowing the terms of it. Like getting a mortgage, but not knowing what I got into.”Kathryn, 21: “I worry about my family’s business being at risk of going under.”I was somehow both surprised and not surprised to learn that I wasn’t the only one with serious financial worries. Though we’re often trivialized or patronized by older generations, I think young people today are smart, observant and fiscally conscious — maybe because we grew up amidst the effects of the 2008 Recession, or watched older generations struggle to pay debt or retire.At Zogo, we’ve talked to hundreds of young people about personal finance, listening to the stories of all the mistakes they’ve made: accumulating heaps of credit card debt, failing to invest an inheritance, buying a car with a 22 percent interest rate. It’s a long list of financial lessons learned the hard way.I don’t want that for myself or for any of the students I talked to, and I can’t think of a credit union that would want that for its members.Even though they’re just kicking off their adult lives, Gen Zers already have their fair share of financial worries. What is your credit union doing to earn their trust?Visit www.zogofinance.com to see how 25 credit unions are using Zogo to connect with the new generation of members.last_img read more

Meet the new burger-flipping owner of Pat Rafter’s house

first_imgMediterranean white-on-white luxury was the theme here.And given he and wife Louise’s newest digs on the beach plus the business’ expansion plans, it’s probably safe to say he’s achieved that.Mr Hales has seen his Betty’s Burgers concept grow from the first outlet in Hastings Street to seven across South East Queensland including Newstead, Chermside, Surfers Paradise and Pacific Fair, one in Darling Harbour and one in Melbourne — and the firm has been flagging “more locations coming soon”.

The “concrete” in the business refers to frozen custard offerings.The business — which has a similar name to the infamous Betty’s Beach Burgers that plied its trade in Noosa’s main street from 1978 until several years ago — was reportedly named after his grandmother Betty Anderson and not Noosa legend Betty Wallace.He told The Sunshine Coast Daily when he launched the business that it had “no association with Betty’s Beach Burgers”.He continued “if I can be even half as successful as Betty Wallace and her burgers were, I would be more than happy”. David Hales’ offer for Pat Rafter’s beach house is equivalent to about 1.4 million of his classic burgers. Picture: Eric Blaich.

Tasmanian-born entrepreneur David Hales, 38, paid one of the highest prices the area has ever seen. His successes had previously spanned pizza and burger food businesses, restaurants and pubs in his birth state.

Call for early withdrawals from Austrian long-term savings accounts

first_imgProviders must offer a guarantee equal to the gross amount of contributions made and a maximum of 40% can be invested in equities.Andreas Csurda, chair of the occupational severance pay funds umbrella group, Plattform der Betrieblichen Vorsorgekassen, said the ÖGB’s proposal could be acceptable on the basis of a compromise that would include the extension of the time the money remains in the accounts.“We propose withdrawing the money in principle at the beginning of the retirement period, except in cases of difficult situations, if the person dies or is suddenly heavily ill, or in case of unemployment for a long period of time,” Csurda told IPE, adding that in the event of an early withdrawal the guarantee falls aside.“I cannot invest and at the same time offer a permanent withdrawal option, and the possibility to take the money after two or three months is counterproductive for us given the capital guarantee,” he said.“I cannot invest and at the same time offer a permanent withdrawal option, and the possibility to take the money after two or three months is counterproductive”Andreas Csurda, chair of Plattform der Betrieblichen VorsorgekassenCsurda said reform would be complex, although he understood the proposal of the union, particularly at a time of crisis when unemployment is rising.“I would be very optimistic that we would manage to find a compromise if we had a bit of time for intense discussions on how to reform the Abfertigung Neu, but because of the crisis now it is too late to find a compromise,” he said. Nevertheless, he added that this could be the starting point for a future solution.Csurda added that Abfertigung Neu should in any case be reformed by extending the investment period on average longer than 36 months, as well as by adding the option to withdraw the money without guarantees in emergency situations.Abfertigung Neu reform is not currently an important political issue. “Politics perceives this issue as marginal. Only for the unions is it important, but I believe it makes sense the proposal of the unions,” Csurda said.The average contribution to severance pay accounts is €25 per month, or 1.53% of the mean salary.Andreas Zakostelsky, chair of the Association of Austrian Occupational Pension Funds and general director of the VBV-Group, said the ÖGB’s approach is “more than understandable” in times of high unemployment, although it is important to reinforce the fundamental idea of retirement provisions for everyone.“From our point of view, it would be important that the money should remain in the fund until retirement to ensure long-term provision for employees,” he said, adding that Vorsorgekassen can significantly increase annual returns.It is too early to say whether the current crisis could accelerate the path towards reform of the severance pay system.“If the social partners propose a good solution for Austrians it will definitely be possible to talk to the government about it,” Zakostelsky said.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine? Read the digital edition here. The COVID-19 crisis has reignited a debate in Austria over the long-term severance pay saving system, with a call for early withdrawals.Wolfgang Katzian, president of the country’s Trade Union Federation (ÖGB), has proposed allowing the withdrawal of assets before the 36 month minimum period that applies under the current rule in cases of employment termination.Under the so-called Abfertigung Neu severance pay system, employers pay 1.53% of the gross salary from the second month of  employment to a dedicated account.At the end of 2018, some 3.5 million Austrians had saved €11.5bn in severance pay accounts with eight providers of so-called betriebliche Vorsorgekassen.last_img read more

Steve’s Jewellery sponsors gold pendants for Guyana Softball Cup MVPs

first_imgSEVEN years, seven pairs of gold pieces for the Most Valuable Players (MVP). That’s the commitment from Steve’s Jewellery to the Guyana Softball Cup, the seventh edition of which will be held from November 3-5.At a simple ceremony yesterday, proprietor Steve Naraine presented the prizes to executives of the Guyana Floodlight Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA), the founding and organising body of the tournament.As is customary, Steve’s Jewellery has provided the MVP prizes for the top player in both the Open and Masters categories. This year, the prizes are two gold pendants in the shape of a cricket bat. Proprietor Naraine was delighted to once again be on board with the international softball event, which will attract teams from Guyana, Canada, Florida and New York.“Last year we did similar gifts and this year we do the bats with the diamond pendants and they’re worth at least $100,000 each. We’re proud to be on board once again with this organisation because we know over the years what it has been doing in terms of giving back to the community,” Naraine said.Naraine pointed out that there are many reasons why Guyanese should come out and view the three days of games, especially the final day, which will conclude under floodlights at the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) ground, Queenstown.Among them are the high quality of cricket that is usually played and the fantastic organising by the GFSCA. The GFSCA was understandably elated to once again partner with the Church Street jewellery store.GFSCA member, Surendra Nauth, commended Naraine and his company for devotedly supporting the premier international softball tournament, noting that the prizes will go a far way in encouraging the players to play to their optimal.The champion team in the Open category will receive $800,000, while winner of the Masters division is assured of $600,000. Matches will be played at the Police, Guyana Defence Force (GDF), Demerara Cricket Club (DCC), Malteenoes and Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) grounds.In 2016, Speedboat XI pulled off a massive upset by dethroning defending champions Regal All-Stars to win the Open segment, while Floodlights XI outplayed Fishermen XI to win the Masters category.The tournament has received corporate support from Stag Beer, Rubis Guyana, Trophy Stall, Steve’s Jewellery, Clear Waters, Busta, Rohan Auto Spares, A&R Jewanram Printery, WJ Enterprise, Mike’s Pharmacy, Ramchand Auto Spares and Survival Group of Business.last_img read more

Trojans gear up to defend last year’s title

first_imgAfter claiming a share of the Pac-10 regular season title and winning the Pac-10 tournament crown, the No. 5 USC men’s tennis team has one more goal to accomplish — repeat as NCAA champions.Defenders · Freshman J.T. Sundling, who won the Pac-10 Invitational Singles Tournament last week, will try to help the Trojans win a second straight NCAA championship. – Gary Fung | Daily Trojan All season, the Trojans have been geared to prepare for the NCAA Championships, which begin May 14th. The Trojans (19-3, 5-1) will be hosting the first two rounds, and the rest of the tournament will be played in Athens, Ga.The USC’s men’s tennis team is hoping to capture its 18th national title in program history.Following a lengthy season, being physically fit is often the element that separates the winners and the losers.“It’s easy to get motivated for such a big tournament,” said junior Jaak Poldma. “The physical part is most important. The key to winning is being healthy and being ready to play. Last year we did so great, we didn’t have injuries, and we were ready for each match.”In an effort to better understand the environment surrounding the championships, the Trojans scheduled a trip to Georgia during spring break, which is even more crucial as USC could potentially face Georgia in the round of 16.“That’s why we went there, to gain familiarity,” said USC coach Peter Smith of the 4-2 victory over the Bulldogs which broke Georgia’s 71-home match win streak. “To know how the courts play and have that recall during the NCAAs.”With all of the time off between the Pac-10 championships and the start of the NCAA tournament, the team has to focus on honing the necessary skills for success.“It’s training camp,” Smith said. “[The players] are preparing for finals in the classroom, and they have to prepare for finals on the court.  It’s time to sharpen the tools, coach them well and improve on the things we need to improve on: conditioning, fitness and doubles.”The players understand that proper preparation depends on using all of the time that they have wisely.“A lot is up to us in how we use our time,” Poldma said. “With the mental part, we have a little break, and we can come back more motivated and use the time off to get healthy.”With the experience from last season, Smith felt that the three keys to capturing the title last season were “character, leadership and doubles.”The doubles point has been a key factor throughout the season.Whenever USC won the doubles point, they went on to win the match, but whenever they lost the initial point, the Trojans ended up falling short.Last season proved to be a breakthrough as Smith won his first national championship as coach of the Trojans.The experience of winning the title has the Trojans determined to defend their title.“This year, we are a little more prepared,” said sophomore Steve Johnson. “We now know what it takes to win again. We’re going to do what we need to do as a team to prepare.”last_img read more

Basketball: Trice overcomes injury, prepared with new perspectives

first_imgNCAA Basketball: Here is all you need to know about new CBB reformsThe NCAA announced new guidelines Wednesday, in an effort to curb corruption in college basketball and restore accountability to an Read…Though that’s not to say Trice was the type to sit idly by for a season and simply wait for his body to heal.In the meantime, he trained to have a new, more cerebral take on the game.“I think that I learned a lot from sitting on the sidelines and getting to take in different perspectives, more as a coach than a player,” Trice said. “I had to find different ways to lead and get guys involved and be a leader from the sidelines.”He said he was able to glean more from the expressions of his coaches – what they see and what they’re talking about – than he would from his normal view when he’s playing. Trice could see from his coaches’ views how different players take criticism and how they apply it to their games in their own ways.Even though it was only a limited time that the 22-year-old guard played the role of quasi-coach, Trice said he thinks it has changed his teammates’ perceptions of him.“Guys look at me differently now than they did last year,” Trice said.Football: NCAA to institute new redshirt guidelines, replacing antiquated, unjust rulesLast month, the NCAA Division 1 Council agreed to a proposal to revamp College Football’s ill-considered redshirt policy. Division 1 Read…With this new experience, it’s hard not to think Trice has a career in coaching ahead of him. For now though, Trice said he’ll stick to playing.Since he got back to 100 percent last spring, Trice said his main focus has been on his body this off-season. He’s gained ten pounds and set new personal marks bench pressing and squatting.“I think it will translate on the court having more confidence and not being able to be pushed around by those bigger guards,” Trice said. “I finally have that big point guard body where I think that will be important later in the season where that ten pounds I didn’t have last year will prevent me from getting fatigued.”As for this upcoming year, the Badgers and Head Coach Greg Gard are going to have some tough decisions to make regarding playing time in the backcourt. With King and Trice coming back from injury, last year’s freshman phenom Brad Davison returning for his sophomore season, and newcomers transfer Trevor Anderson and freshman Tai Strickland, there is certainly more talent than the single-faceted rotations the Badgers were stuck with last season.Football: Quarterback recruit Graham Mertz prepares to ‘bring a natty’ to MadisonIn a Tweet Thursday, four star quarterback recruit Graham Mertz confirmed his commitment to Wisconsin. Clear mind… #OnWisconsin pic.twitter.com/ZihIQ9ri9G — Read…These are good problems to have, and Trice looks forward to intense practices before the season gets started this fall.Now, Trice heads into the 2018-19 season with a new perspective, a healthy body and another shot at his sophomore season. Sometimes you come across a story that typifies a platitude so faultlessly that you don’t even feel cliché, and you know you just have to go for it.That being said: D’Mitrick Trice’s injury early into last season was a devastating blow to Wisconsin basketball and contributed to their worst season in two decades, but every cloud has its silver lining.Back in December of 2017, Trice was sidelined with a right foot injury that required surgery, rehab and eventually held him out the entire rest of the year. Trice was a breakout player in his freshman season in 2016-17, playing in 37 games and factoring in as the Badger’s top bench player. Coming into his sophomore year, Trice was slotted as the starting point guard and was projected to be a leader, on and off the court, for the young Badgers rotation.Football: CB Dontye Carriere-Williams granted release, will pursue transferWisconsin’s most seasoned cornerback Dontye Carriere-Williams announced he would be leaving the program in a tweet last night. The redshirt Read…Trice would start the first ten games of the season before his injury, which happened just in time for Trice to preserve his eligibility and be granted a medical redshirt for the season.“I think the time the injury happened was a blessing,” Trice said. “Honestly if it happened any later I wouldn’t have been eligible for the redshirt and I would have lost a whole year. I think things happen for a reason.”During his rehabilitation, Trice found support in those who have gone through similar injuries, like Kyle Ahrens who plays basketball for Michigan State University. Ahrens succumbed to a foot injury as well, and the two western Ohio natives talked frequently about their shared obstacle.Football: Western Kentucky comes to town to kick off seasonFriday evening, Badger fans will make the first of many treks down to Camp Randall as Wisconsin Football takes on Read…Wisconsin Basketball Assistant Coach Joe Krabbenhoft also served as an adviser for Trice, as Krabbenhoft fell victim to the same injury during his own basketball career.Trice dealt with his disappointment by maintaining a positive attitude, and “not being too down in the dumps.”“Other than not being able to play and be out there with my teammates I tried to keep in high spirits, I can’t really complain,” Trice said.last_img read more

Dylan Floro found his way back to Dodgers with chip on his shoulder, life on his fastball

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ A free agent after the season ended, Floro signed with the Cincinnati Reds and used his experience as fuel. Floro had tasted the big leagues with the Tampa Bay Rays and Cubs over the past two years and decided it was time he stayed there.“When I came in this year, I wanted to prove a point, knowing I can pitch up here and just needed a chance,” Floro said. “I got that with the Reds. I’ve just been trusting my stuff more, throwing my two-seamer to both sides of the plate and attacking the zone as much as I can. I just wanted to prove to people that I belong up here.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.“I’m just a little more focused and trying to prove a point.”His fastball has made the argument for him. Floro has gained almost 2 mph in velocity this year, averaging over 95 mph on his fastball. His slider has also jumped to 88 mph.The Dodgers saw enough potential in Floro to try and re-sign him after last season, according to GM Farhan Zaidi who called Floro “the one that got away” among a group of minor-league free agents that included Max Muncy (who re-signed with the Dodgers). When Floro started fulfilling that potential with the Reds (he had a 2.72 ERA and 57 ground-ball rate in 25 appearances), the Dodgers re-acquired him in a trade last week. It was the first of two moves in the past week aimed at adding to the team’s bullpen options. Left-hander Zac Rosscup was claimed on waivers from the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday and will join the Dodgers this weekend. Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day SAN DIEGO — Five times last season, right-hander Dylan Floro was promoted from Triple-A to the Chicago Cubs. And five times he was sent back to the minors.He made only three appearances for the Cubs. And, at the end of July when they needed room on their 40-man roster for their trade-deadline pickups, Floro was designated for assignment and the roller coaster stopped. He was claimed on waivers by the Dodgers and finished the season in Triple-A.A year like that can put a chip on a guy’s shoulder.“Yeah, it does,” the former Cal State Fullerton reliever said. “Last year with the Cubs – nothing against them – but going up and down so much and getting DFA’d, that wasn’t much fun.” “He (Floro) was a strong-performing starting pitcher in the Rays’ system actually, converted to the ’pen in ’16,” Zaidi said. “He was kind of 88-90 as a starter. When we had him last year he was 90-92, which was kind of an uptick but probably not where he needed to be at to make an impact at this level.“He came in this year and I don’t know what mechanical changes he made. I think some of it is just that some guys take a little longer to get comfortable in the ’pen and get that mindset of letting it go because you’re only going to be throwing one or two innings.”In his first three appearances for the Dodgers (including a 1-2-3 eighth Thursday in San Diego), Floro has retired all 10 batters he has faced – five on ground balls, four on strikeouts. The two outings confirmed the “steady increase in velocity and the action on the sinker” that attracted the Dodgers, Zaidi said.“When I talked to him after the trade, I said, ‘Look, I know it was a disappointing experience for you, getting claimed by us and not getting up, getting outrighted,’” the GM said. “‘You wanted to find a better opportunity and you found it because you went to a new team, you made the team and you pitched well. And you’re a big leaguer now.’”STILL HERESince making three starts for the Dodgers in the first half of June, rookie left-hander Caleb Ferguson has pitched a total of 11 innings in almost four weeks (six of them in two Clayton Kershaw starts when Kershaw’s availability was limited).The Dodgers will have to make a roster move to add Rosscup this weekend but Manager Dave Roberts said he expects Ferguson to stay around “a little longer” rather than head back to Triple-A to continue his development as a starter.“I think right now Caleb’s done a really nice job and part of his growth is being able to watch major-league players get ready each day,” Roberts said.“I know he sees himself as a starter, and the organization does. But right now, we just see so much value in him for our big-league club in that (long relief) capacity. The role that Ross (Stripling) filled in ’16 helped him get acclimated to the big leagues, making some spot starts. Can I see that happening? Absolutely. Whether it plays out that way, I can’t speak to. Right now, I think he’s a good piece in our ’pen.”ALSORoberts said Astros manager A.J. Hinch invited him to join him on a tour of the White House while the two are in Washington for the All-Star Game next week.

Mason City leaders say development agreement signed for downtown hotel

first_imgMASON CITY — Mason City city leaders say they’ve finalized an agreement with Gatehouse Mason City LLC for the construction of a hotel that’s part of the River City Renaissance project. The hotel is a key component as it fulfills the private investment portion of the $39 million project being supported through the Iowa Reinvestment Act.City Administrator Aaron Burnett says, “The agreement contains incentives for the development of the hotel and conference center, and then also requirements for those incentives, such as the development of a conference center that can accommodate 700 people, a hotel that will have over a hundred rooms in it, and obviously a select service hotel, a very quality hotel, and providing an avenue for developing the River City Renaissance to the to the vision that’s been provided.”Burnett says the time frame for the project is still a long one. “It will take a long time to design, to finance, and to complete the hotel, but this step was if it was a critical step forward. Gatehouse has been proactive in trying to make sure that the next steps move smoothly, working with construction companies and engineering firms and architecture firms and financing, to make sure that we can move as quickly as possible beyond this step. This is a big leap forward to making this vision a reality.”Burnett says despite the length of time it took to reach the agreement, both the city and Gatehouse are ready to move forward on the project. “It’s a legal document, and it’s a long legal document, and it is an important structure for making sure that the city gets what it needs for the incentives that are provided for the project, and also making sure that Gatehouse has the confidence in the city performing on its incentives and its requirements.”The city council will review the development agreement document at their meeting next Tuesday night, with final approval of the agreement slated for the council’s July 16th meeting. Burnett made his comments as part of a social media posting by Mayor Bill Schickel.last_img read more

Sheriff: “The most fair result would have been a draw”

first_imgWhy has defended the lack of Messi?We have a staff that is dedicated to work and we had prepared during the trainings their way of executing the faults and it worked out well.How have you seen Messi?With desire. When you have the day it is very difficult to stop. It has been bright at specific times.Why do you think the tie was the fairest result?They have had their chances, but so have we. If a team is better than us, I recognize it. Today the fair result was a draw.Is this the roof of the Real?We still have a lot to improve and grow. The team is young. We have ten or twelve players who were four years ago competing with me in Second B. That says a lot how the Real works the quarry issue.How have they stopped the ball out of Barça?We had it prepared. We knew that we could harm them also in transitions and positional play. What rating do you make of the match?We have deserved for the boldness and what my team has done in the field for at least one draw.What do you think of the penalty?I respect the referees to the fullest, sometimes they benefit and harm. If he has called it, it is because he has seen it.Were they tired because of the Cup match?We had made a great effort, but we proved to be in a good moment and we had a very competitive team. We have faced a Barcelona in the Camp Nou.What do you think of Barcelona?It has been our merit. I have great respect for the rival team and colleagues. We have done a great job and if Barcelona has not been at a great level it is because we have done many things well.Have you missed more success in the last meter?You are right. Look we make goals, but this time we have missed the last pass or the last shot. But the ball did not want to enter. There are times when you get hurt, but in this defeat I am happy, proud and satisfied.last_img read more

Week of woe looms large for Arsenal

first_imgLONDON (AP):Out of the Champions League. Out of the FA Cup. Out of the Premier League title race?A miserable week for Arsenal would be capped on Saturday if the team fails to beat Everton.The Premier League trophy, which the Gunners haven’t won since 2004, will become increasingly unobtainable if their three-game winless league run continues.At the start of the year, Arsenal were two points in front of Leicester in first place and in contention for three trophies.Three months later, Arsenal trail Leicester by 11 points and are sitting third. Arsenal’s FA Cup defence was surprisingly ended by Watford on Sunday, before Barcelona beat the Gunners in the Champions League.As so often, barring a collapse by Leicester, Arsenal’s season could come down to securing a top-four place and Champions League qualification. That’s not enough for some Arsenal fans, who expect more from their wealthy team.But as Everton manager Roberto Martinez prepares to host counterpart Arsene Wenger, he is amazed that a vocal section of Arsenal fans is calling for the Frenchman to leave after 20 years in charge.RUTHLESS GAME”It seems it doesn’t matter what you’ve done in a football club, how you’ve built it or if you’ve been the best manager in the last 20 years in European football, the modern game is ruthless,” Martinez said yesterday. “On the back of a defeat, you are going to get criticised. Everyone has gotan opinion, everyone knows better than you and that’s disappointing.”Martinez was playing for Wigan when Wenger took charge of Arsenal in 1996 and two years later led them to the first of three Premier League titles.”The management that he brought into the British game has changed British football,” said Martinez, who has also coached Swansea and Wigan. “What he has achieved at Arsenal is a model that many, many football people have been inspired by. The short-term situation of one or two results sometimes overshadows the incredible work over the years.DON’T PUSH ASIDE”The style that Arsene Wenger represents shouldn’t just be put aside. It’s just a reflection of the modern times when we are easily led to criticise a manager who has done incredible things in the game.”Arsenal will be hoping Tottenham slip up at home to Bournemouth, given that their London rivals are six points ahead and have played a game more.Leicester, who are five points ahead of Tottenham, face a Crystal Palace team which has dropped from sixth in December to 15th by winning only one in 16 games.last_img read more

Arnett, BT to rock Trench Town in Red Stripe Premier League

first_imgFollowing their defeat last week, defending champions Arnett Gardens will not only be seeking to return to winning ways today, but will also be fighting for bragging rights on Collie Smith Drive.Sharing the same street, Collie Smith Drive, Arnett Gardens will be hoping to share little else with their neighbours when the two meet this evening at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.Arnett Gardens should enjoy home advantage, but that in itself should not mean much if their last performance is anything to go by. Against Cavalier, they looked lost as they allowed themselves to be dictated to by the less fancied opposition.Their opening game, played at home, saw a better show by them, but that was against newcomers UWI FC, who were also beaten 3-0 in their second game by Montego Bay United.”We lost Monday’s game, but we just have to concentrate on the game at hand,” said coach Jerome Waite of Arnett Gardens.”Preseason training is important before the competition starts. Where that is concerned, Arnett Gardens failed. We had some players going overseas, some playing business house, some playing corner league, so we did not have proper preparation, so what is happening is basically preseason work,” Waite added, explaining his team’s below par performance.Despite that situation, Waite expects his players to put in a much better performance today.”The work that the team put in this week was much improved, so we should see a better performance. They are still not where I want them to be but we can still do enough to pull off a victory,” Waite said.Boys’ Town’s Andrew Price is expecting a tough game.”This game is going to be very competitive. All Collie Smith Drive games are and I don’t expect this to be different,” said Price.Unlike Arnett Gardens, Boys’ Town have not won any of their two games so far, but have not lost any either. They started brightly in both of their games, but were unable to put away the opposition.”My team is slowly getting to where we want to be. One of the things that we have been working on is keeping the lead. We need to keep our shape in defence and midfield because we have the players who will score for us,” said Price.He added: “Peter Keyes and Michael Blygen have looked sharp, Rafeik Thomas scored 16 goals for us last season and there is also the youngster, Shamar Nicholson, who should feature at some point.”If Arnett Gardens are to win, the leadership qualities of O’Neil Thompson will need to be at its best, as he, along with Andrew Phang and Leon Strickland, will have to carry the youngsters.At Drewsland Stadium, visitors Portmore United will be aiming to maintain their unbeaten record when they go up against Waterhouse, who have just one point from their one completed game.Rivoli United will be looking for their first win of the season when they entertain UWI FC, who are still to record a win or score a goal in the League, while Tivoli Gardens will host Humble Lion without the electric Jermaine Johnson.On Monday night, Harbour View will play Reno under lights.Today’s Games6:00 p.m.: Arnett Gardens vs Boys’ Town at Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex4:00 p.m.: Rivoli United vs UWI FC at Spanish Town Prison Oval3:30 p.m.: Tivoli Gardens vs Humble Lion at Edward Seaga Sports Complex4:00 p.m.: Waterhouse vs Portmore United at Drewsland StadiumMonday Night Game8:30 p.m.: Harbour View vs Reno at Harbour View StadiumStandingsTeams P W D L GF GA GD PtsPortmore 2 2 0 0 3 0 3 6Cavalier 2 1 1 0 1 0 1 4Arnett 2 1 0 1 3 1 1 3MoBay Utd 2 1 0 1 3 2 1 3Reno 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 3Boys’ Town 2 0 2 0 2 2 0 2H.View 2 0 2 0 2 2 0 2Tivoli 2 0 2 0 1 1 0 2Waterhouse 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1Humble Lion 2 0 1 1 1 2 -1 1Rivoli 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1UWI FC 2 0 0 2 0 6 -6 0last_img read more

Convicted rapist acquitted of 2 child rape charges

first_imgConvicted child rapist Mark Campbell was on Tuesday afternoon acquitted of raping another boy when his case came up before Sexual Offences Court Judge Simone Morris Ramlall.The unrepresented accused was indicted on two counts of child sexual activity with a family member in a case that was presented by State Prosecutors Orinthia Schmidt and Shawnette Austin.Convicted rapist Mark Campbell was acquitted of an additional child rape chargesThe 12-member jury returned an 11-1 not guilty verdict on the first count after three hours of deliberations. The jury was, however, unable to reach a formal verdict on the second count, and Justice Ramlall announced that it was up to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to decide if Campbell would face another trial.Guyana Times was told that the incidents allegedly occurred in the county of Demerara during September 2011 and July 2013 when the child was three and five years old respectively. The particulars of the charges contended that the acts were allegedly penetrative in nature.Campbell walked out of court smiling, but he would remain incarcerated having been sentenced to 30 years in prison in October last year for raping another male family member who was seven and eight when he was violated in 2011 and 2013.At that trial in 2017, the jury had unanimously found Campbell guilty of two counts of sexual activity with a child that was left in his care by a mother who was working nights. At that time, Campbell, who was unrepresented, claimed that he did not receive a fair trial.last_img read more

Grieving father still waiting for justice

first_img…as son’s killer roams freely“One year has come and gone, and my son’s killer is still a free man, roaming the streets of Lethem.”Those were the words of Puran Persaud of Lot 165 Henrietta Housing Scheme, Essequibo Coast. Persaud’s son, 32-year-old Haimchand Persaud, was murdered at about 02:30h on April 18, 2017 in Lethem, Region Nine. He was stabbed once to the chest.Dead: Haimchand PersaudSpeaking to this newspaper in a recent interview, the still grieving Persaud said his son and daughter-in-law Shenika were returning home after selling at a pageant held in the community when he was attacked and killed by someone known to the couple.According to the father, his daughter-in-law had over $800,000 in cash in a handbag she was carrying, but the killer did not take it, leading the family to believe that the incident was not a robbery.Persaud, was a security guard at the Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry in Lethem. The dead man’s father related that based on the reports coming out after the incident, the killer was known to the couple. He said that he has exhausted all means in trying to get justice for his son. He said that according to information the family received recently, his son’s killer is living with his brother in deep Takutu, and frequently visits relatives in Lethem; and yet no arrest has been made.The father said that he has written to Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan, Commissioner of Police, Crime Chief, and Officer in Charge of Lethem Police Station on several occasions. A copy of one of the letters, dated February 26, 2018, was shown to this publication.The father, in tears, told this publication that he has not received any acknowledgement of the letters written, and is very frustrated with the way the Lethem Police are handling the matter.last_img read more

GECOM wants evidence of names left off of voters’ list

first_imgFollowing allegations that hundreds of names have been omitted from the Guyana Elections Commission’s (GECOM’s) list of voters for Local Government Elections (LGE), GECOM is saying it wants evidence that persons were unable to vote because their names were omitted from the list.Public Relations Officer at GECOM, Yolanda Warde, during an interview with this publication on Friday, made known this position.As promised, she informed that the Commission had met with the various heads of the disciplined forces as investigations continue into what exactly had transpired on the disciplined forces’ voting day.She said, “I am not aware (of the full extent of the situation). I have seen reports in the media of an alarming and this overwhelming hundreds of people (being left off the voters’ lists). I am not aware, and GECOM is not aware, of that; and if that is the case, then I ask that those persons provide the evidence to us”.Warde explained that GECOM cannot possibly leave persons’ names off the voters’ list. She surmised that one of two things could have transpired.“If an officer does not reside in a Local Authority Area (LAA), then — this is Local Government Elections — he or she will not be required to vote in these elections,” she informed. She added, “We observe that there might have been cases where the respective disciplined services did not provide the information to us, so when those officers turned up to vote, they could not have voted”.The GECOM spokesperson added that she was aware of one case where persons in a hinterland area were unable to vote, as the weather conditions were poor and did not allow for the landing of the aircraft transporting the necessary electionGECOM Public Relations Officer Yolanda Wardematerials.This, however, does not mean that members of the disciplined services will not be given a chance to vote, as they will get another opportunity come November 12, on the actual LGE Day.Last week, GECOM had related plans to meet with the various heads of the disciplined services following the discovery of names of ranks being missing from the voters’ list on November 2, when ranks voted in the Local Government Elections.“The list of persons from the disciplined services that was provided to us actually came from the Guyana Police Force, the Guyana Defence Force (and) the (Guyana) Prison Service; so those persons, we’ve worked with that list that they would have provided to us. So if there were omissions on that part, where the respective agency did not provide an officer’s name to us, that is not an omission on GECOM’s part,” she said.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo took GECOM to task for the missing names during a recent press conference. He said he also had received information that there have been over 100 reports of this occurring, in sharp contrast to the two reports cited by Warde.“I am very unhappy with a situation that was brought to our attention today (Friday),” Jagdeo stated. “We have received over a hundred reports where soldiers and Police turned up to vote and were told that they will be unable to do so, since their names were not on the list to vote today, although they had done so in 2015 and 2016 on D-day.“So far, we have sought answers from GECOM; the explanations are not satisfactory. We will follow this matter intensely over the next few days, to ensure that no member of the disciplined services is disenfranchised,” he promised.last_img read more

Soaring into postseason

first_imgThe Angels reached the postseason for the third time in four seasons, defeating the New York Yankees in the first round before losing in a controversial six-game series to the eventual World Series champion Chicago White Sox. The season also was highlighted by individual achievement with 21-game winner Bartolo Colon winning the American League Cy Young Award as the league’s top pitcher. Off the field, the club stirred some controversy by changing its name from the Anaheim Angels to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The move was designed to create a greater presence nationally and increase corporate sponsorship. The city of Anaheim took the club to court and a final ruling is pending. Unlike past seasons when the Angels won with a high-power offense, the club struggled because of injuries to left fielder Garret Anderson and rookie third baseman Dallas McPherson and inconsistency at the plate by newly acquired center fielder Steve Finley. The next batter, Joe Crede, hit a game-winning double and the White Sox didn’t lose another playoff game. During the offseason, the Angels lost solid right-hander Paul Byrd to free agency and cut ties with longtime starter Jarrod Washburn and catcher Bengie Molina. Bench coach Joe Maddon also left to become manager of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. — Matt McHale, (818) 713-3622 [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Guerrero, the reigning AL MVP, finished with 32 homers and 108 RBI, but his batting average dropped more than 30 points. The Angels also lost starter Kelvim Escobar to persistent elbow problems, which eventually required surgery. But Escobar’s injury led to the emergence of rookie right-hander Ervin Santana as a solid starter. He won 12 games in the regular season and won the clinching Game 5 against the Yankees. Santana took over in the second inning of that game when Colon went down with a shoulder injury that forced him out of the playoffs. The jet-lagged Angels, who had played Game 4 of the ALDS in New York, won Game 5 in Anaheim and flew to Chicago to play Game 1 of the ALCS the following day. They won the first game, but lost Game 2 in extra innings. The White Sox scored the winning run after catcher A.J. Pierzynski reached base on an apparent strike three. Angels catcher Josh Paul ran off the field and Pierzynski ran to first after home plate umpire Doug Eddings ruled Paul did not catch the ball cleanly.last_img read more

Vodafone Forced to Send Pro-Government Text Messages in Egypt

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#news#NYT#web audrey watters Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Telecommunications company Vodafone says that it has been forced to send pro-government messages to its subscribers in Egypt during the country’s recent protests.In a short press statement released today, the network said that the Egyptian government had invoked emergency powers to instruct the mobile networks of Mobinil, Etisalat and Vodafone to send scripted messages to subscribers.These messages included statements like “The Armed Forces asks Egypt’s honest and loyal men to confront the traitors and criminals and protect our people and honor and our precious Egypt.”“These messages are not scripted by any of the mobile network operators and we do not have the ability to respond to the authorities on their content,” says the company.

Shock over Centre’s move keeps Kashmir Valley streets silent

first_imgA sense of shock and disbelief keeps the streets of Kashmir Valley unusually silent in reaction to the abrogation of Article 370, bifurcation and stripping of statehood, even as curfew-like restrictions and communication blockade continued for the fifth day on Friday.A senior police officer, monitoring the situation since August 5 on specially circulated phone series, told The Hindu that street agitation compared to the 2008 Amarnath land row, the 2009 alleged rape-and-murder of two women in Shopian, the hanging of Afzal Guru in 2013 and the killing of militant ‘commander’ Burhan Wani 2016 “is far far less with just one casualty, due to drowning at Safa Kadal reported during a protest, in the first four days.”“It is disconcerting as much as heartening to see the streets silent in Kashmir. We witnessed an over 20-day shutdown and street protests in 2018 on mere rumours of Article 35A being heard by the Supreme Court (SC),” a senior police officer told The Hindu.Also Read  Nazir Ahmad, an Arts graduate from Khanyar, said, “We are angry about what has been done to J&K. However, this is no more an issue to be settled with just stones or street agitation. We have reached a pass where political solution to J&K has to be now or never.”Many locals are awaiting the release of leaders, both mainstream and separatists. “Let (National Conference vice-president) Omar Abdullah be released from jail. We want our leadership to take a final call on this. It is the second time New Delhi has backstabbed the NC, the first time in 1953,” said Ghulam Nabi, an NC worker.Around 250 leaders, including top brass of the Peoples Democratic Party and the NC, have been arrested in the clampdown.Meanwhile, curfew-like restrictions have made life difficult in the Valley. Only movement for emergencies is allowed, ATMs are running dry and eatables are scarce.“I was surrounded by policemen in the old city and forced to delete all videos of protests,” Shafat Ahmad, a stringer of the BBC, told The Hindu.The communication blockade is unlikely to be withdrawn any time soon.“Around 300 telephone booths will be set up in Kashmir so that relatives of people outside can get in touch with their families,” said Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, Baseer Khan.This service will also be used by over 30,000 Haj pilgrims from J&K in Saudi Arabia at present. They will start returning after Eid on Monday next. “Transportation and security will be made available to them,” said Mr. Khan.

Mahatma Gandhi’s poster defaced in Madhya Pradesh’s Rewa museum

first_imgA poster of Mahatma Gandhi at a museum in Rewa, Madhya Pradesh, was found defaced, and the miscreants wrote rashtradrohi (traitor) on it. The Rewa police have registered a case against unidentified persons.Furthermore, Congress district president Gurmeet Singh (Mangu) has claimed an urn carrying the ashes of Gandhiji was also stolen from the Bapu Bhavan museum on the intervening night of Tuesday and Wednesday.“We are investigating the case of the poster being smeared. No arrests have been made so far,” said Abid Khan, Rewa Superintendent of Police.In a written complaint to the police, Mr. Singh said: “On a poster of Mahatma Gandhi at the Bapu Bhawan, words like traitor had been written. And an urn carrying his mortal remains was also missing. A high-level inquiry must be initiated into this.”Though the police have taken the complaint, Mr. Khan said, the Lakshman Bagh Sansthan, which manages the Bhavan, has not approached them yet.“The urn, if it existed and was stolen, didn’t carry remains,” claimed Mr. Khan. “We are not investigating the urn aspect for now. Whether there was such an urn there in the first place needs to be looked into. If it was stolen, why didn’t the sansthan, the custodian, file a complaint,” he wondered.The police had registered a case against unidentified persons under Sections 153 (B) [ Imputations, assertions prejudicial to national-integration], 504 [Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace] and 505 [Statements conducing to public mischief] of the Indian Penal Code.last_img read more

Worst thing in cricket: Virat Kohli on rain interruptions during match

first_imgRain turned the first one-dayer between India and West Indies at the Providence Stadium, Guyana, into a stop-start match and eventually forced the match to be called off with just 13 overs being bowled. Intermittent rain on Thursday frustrated India captain Virat Kohli as he said such interferences during play was the ‘worst’ thing in cricket.The start of the series opener was delayed by 90 minutes due to morning showers and was reduced to 43-overs a side before rain once again played a spoilsport and after two interruptions in the play the match was abandoned.Virat Kohli said interferences during the match that keep forcing players off the field is not a good feeling.”It’s probably the worst part of cricket, a stop-start is never a good feeling. Either it should rain out or play the full game. The more stops you have, the more you want to be careful to ensure that the players don’t injure themselves,” Kohli said in a post-match presentation.”A few pitches might have good pace and bounce, while others can be a bit slower and difficult. So you have assess them and play accordingly,” Kohli added when asked on playing in the West Indies.Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to field against West Indies. The first interruption in the game happened after 5.4 overs with West Indies yet to reach the double digits. However, the play resumed after an hour with game reduced to 40-overs-per side.The players came back on the field once the sun came out but waited for the ground staff to complete their job as a damp outfield further delayed the resumption.advertisementThe players went back into their respective dressing rooms and then came back out again after a lengthy delay with the match being further reduced to 34 overs-per-side.West Indies opener Evin Lewis then troubled pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar and smashed him for a six. Lewis went on to give Indian pacers a hard time as he hit Khaleel Ahmed for a six and two boundaries to cream 15 overs from the over.However, Chris Gayle continued to struggle with the bat as he played his slowest-ever ODI innings, scoring only four singles in 31 deliveries.Kuldeep Yadav managed to pick up the wicket of Chris Gayle for 4 soon after the resumption in the 11th over even as Evin Lewis started upping the ante from the other end.But the game lasted just a few more minutes as rain once again stopped play after the 13th over with West Indies reaching 54 for 1 with Evin Lewis (40 not out) and Shai Hope (6 not out) at the crease.last_img read more

He is very happy here.”Dortmund will look to continue their electric form to start the Bundesliga campaign which has seen them pick up four wins and a draw in their first five games to lead the league.Aubameyang has been a big part of that run, scoring five goals over that span for the club.

Here Is How Georgia QB Jake Fromm Reportedly Broke His Hand On July 4th

first_imgJake Fromm throwing the ball for Georgia.KNOXVILLE, TN – SEPTEMBER 30: Jake Fromm #11 of the Georgia Bulldogs throws a pass in the second quarter of a game against the Tennessee Volunteers at Neyland Stadium on September 30, 2017 in Knoxville, Tennessee. (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

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 : http://www.workplacesafetystrategy.ca/Home/Fishing-Safety.

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.

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

La majorité des Européens aimeraient vivre très vieux

first_imgLa majorité des Européens aimeraient vivre très vieuxSelon une étude Pileje/Ifop parue le 29 avril, 52% des Européens souhaiteraient vivre très vieux, par exemple au-delà de cent ans. 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. À lire aussiC’est prouvé : être bienveillant envers soi-même est bon pour la santéAinsi, les Espagnols et Italiens se verraient bien vivre vieux, au-delà de 100 ans (respectivement 62% et 63% des sondés). Toutefois, les Anglais (49%), Allemands (44%) et Français (48%) ne montrent pas autant d’enthousiasme à cette perspective. En moyenne, les personnes interrogées estiment qu’elles vivront jusqu’à 83,9 ans. Toujours d’après l’étude, la vieillesse est perçue par 65% des sondés comme “un moment pouvant être heureux, mais pas toujours”. C’est aussi l’avis des Français, qui sont également 64% à juger qu’il faut pouvoir être autonome et vivre chez soi pour être heureux lorsqu’on vieillit.Concernant la santé, “une bonne hygiène de vie” est citée comme premier critère à prendre en compte (61% des Européens et 77% des Français).Le 3 mai 2011 à 10:25 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

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.

Video Ronaldo breaks silence on losing out in FIFA awards

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo has broken his silence on FIFA’s The Best awards that saw him lose out to both Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah respectivelyThe Juventus star was left empty-handed as his former Real Madrid teammate Modric claimed FIFA Player of the Year award.This came despite the fact that it had been Ronaldo who inspired Los Blancos to a third successive Champions League triumph last season with an impressive 15 goals.Meanwhile, the Portuguese superstar’s spectacular overhead kick against Juventus in last term’s Champions League quarter-finals was also overlooked for FIFA’s Puskas award in favour of Salah’s strike against Everton in the Premier League.However, Ronaldo instead showed respect and congratulated the pair on their achievements.Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.Although he put in a reminder of what he has accomplished himself.“I congratulate him [Modric], sometimes it’s like that, you win and lose. I’m happy with what I’m doing, I’m at the same level for the last 15 years,” he said in an Instagram Live video.“His [Salah] is definitely a well-deserved award, it was a nice goal, but my overhead kick against Juventus in the Champions League was better. That’s okay though, I already have that prize at home.”Ronaldo will likely line-up for Juventus today ahead of their showdown with title rivals Napoli at Turin at 18:00 (GMT +2).last_img read more

Gender pay gap in hightech sector is 25

first_imgThere is a 25% gender pay gap in the UK’s high-tech sector, according to research by Mercer.Its study, which is based on an analysis of 66,000 employees across 153 organisations using data from its Comptryx database, also found that small organisations within the high-tech sector have the largest gender pay gap, with a 30% difference in median pay between all male and female employees, and a 26% difference in mean base salaries.When looking at specific job roles, the research found that those with professional experience encounter the highest pay gap, with female professionals earning 19% less than their male counterparts. There is a 32% gender pay gap across sales and marketing functions within the sector.In terms of discretionary pay, such as bonuses, women are paid 20% less than men. This represents a typical payment of 3.7% of base pay for men and 3% for women.Chris Charman (pictured), reward expert at Mercer, said: “The considerable gender pay gap in the tech sector comes as no surprise to most, though this relatively crude measure hides a bigger issue than just pay. A simple averaged figure across a whole organisation is easily skewed by disproportionate numbers of senior male high earners and men in specialist roles.“In fact, a large gap is more likely to indicate a lack of women in professional and senior positions, rather than simply an uneven pay structure. To narrow the gap, it is not enough for [organisations] to be equal pay compliant, they also need to develop and support a healthy pipeline of women being promoted up through the organisation.“With closer analysis, it’s clear that the gender pay gap is about more than just pay. Unfortunately, the proposed government regulations on gender pay gap reporting are too blunt a tool of measurement and will not solve the issue.“To genuinely address the gender pay gap in a generation, the government must take more steps to promote shared parental leave, support organisations in creating balanced talent pipelines, and support educational initiatives that challenge gender stereotypes in work to enable young boys and girls to see a less gendered view of their roles in society in the future.”last_img read more

After all when a team invests the kind of resourc

first_imgAfter all, when a team invests the kind of resources it did to get Kolb — and then perhaps passed on a chance to sign Peyton Manning because they were afraid of losing him — there’s no other way to view things.And it’s a shame.Now the Cardinals are, for better or worse, in pretty much the same place they were two summers ago, minus the possibility that their franchise QB could be on the way. Drew Stanton is alright, but in no way projected to be a star. Brian Hoyer played admirably last season, but the same could be said for him.Then there’s John Skelton and Ryan Lindley who, well, yeah.The Cardinals swung for the fences when they made the deal for Kolb, as he was the biggest name on the market and many believed he was destined to blossom into a quality quarterback. As anyone who knows baseball could tell you, sometimes a cut like that leads to a home run, and sometimes it results in a strikeout. The Cardinals didn’t connect, and now the Kevin Kolb era is over in Arizona. He will go on to sign with another team and, maybe, stay on the field long enough to show what kind of quarterback he can be. It’d be nice to finally find out.

People always use round numbers but at Skyscanner

first_imgPeople always use round numbers but at Skyscanner we like to do things differently. £104 is close enough to the ton, but with the extra four quid gets you to a really quite exotic place.Part of Skyscanner’s functionality you may not have used is the “Weekend breaks” option which appears under “Suggestions” on the homepage. This allows you to pick a weekend in the future and quickly find flights (in ascending price order) for destinations all over the world. Booking flights for a romantic weekend, a stag or hen-do, a birthday surprise, a sporting couple of days or just a short get-away takes hardly any time with Skyscanner since all the dates are already listed. Having chosen your departure airport, a selection of cities appears with just a click of a button.The list of destinations below shows just a selection of possible trips using Skyscanner’s search engine capabilities. All return prices are correct at the time of writing and all relate to the same weekend 14th-16th March 2008.Skiing in FinlandFlights: London Stansted – Tampere, Finland with Ryanair Price: £44.18 per personWhen you think of weekend ski trips in early spring, Finland is not a country which immediately leaps to mind – not to my mind anyway. Himos is one of Finland’s most popular ski resorts and is just 95km from the airport in Tampere. The resort can be reached by bus or by hire car and the trip takes about 90 mins – a reasonably short transfer time to a ski resort.Himos has 21 runs – the longest being just under one kilometre and 13 lifts. There are slopes to suit all abilities and children under the age of 7 with a helmet can ski for free. Unlike many resorts in the rest of Europe, you can ski from late October and also unlike many resorts, day prices for adult lift passes are around 30 Euros.For more information see:www.himos.comA taste of North AfricaFlights: London Gatwick – Marrakech, Menara with Royal Air Maroc from www.ebookers.comPrice: £104.00 per personA quick three and a half hour flight can transport the weekend traveller to a city that is genuinely very different to cities in western Europe. The airport is just 4km from the city and a quick bus or taxi ride can take you to the heart of the city. The first stop for the visitor is often the Medina (or Old City).In the centre of the Medina is Djemaa el-Fna – a busy square with a carnival-style atmosphere which draws tourists to witness the entertainers and performers and to sample delicious Moroccan food from local stalls. The city also affords the visitor the opportunity to explore a maze of alleyways full of bazaars and shopkeepers selling local products – get your haggling skills sharpened up before embarking on a spending spree. With average temperatures in March reaching up to 21 degrees, you might even get a bit of a tan.For more information see:www.fodors.comwww.morocco.comHistoric GranadaFlights: Liverpool – Granada, Spain with RyanairPrice: £77.92 per personThe Spanish city of Granada is famous for, amongst other things, the magnificent Alhambra – the Moors’ hilltop citadel and their last stronghold before being ousted in 1492. Over two million visitors a year flock to see it every year and as such tickets are at a premium. The number of tickets is strictly controlled so rather than risk a long queue and potential disappointment, it is best to get tickets in advance (more information here).On a hill opposite the Alhambra is the Albaicín – the old Arabic quarter – which still retains the feel of its origins. The winding cobbled streets and white-washed houses are a photographer or painter’s dream and almost everywhere one goes, there is a beautiful view to be had. Exploring the area, one finds countless squares, restaurants and shops – a beautiful and picturesque place to while away an afternoon or two.For more information see:www.timeout.comgranadainfo.comEastern European adventures in SloveniaFlights: London Stansted – Ljubljana, Slovenia with EasyjetPrice: £64.98 per personLjubljana is the capital of Slovenia and only a couple of hours away by air. It is one of the most attractive of the former Soviet Bloc countries, and its capital is well worth a visit.The buildings of the city centre were shaped in the main by architect, Jože Pleènik though they have also been influenced by other nations who have passed through the city in the preceding centuries. The city offers the visitor a wealth of sites with one of the most popular being Ljubljana Castle where you can either don a stout pair of walking legs and climb to it or catch a funicular railway. The castle affords the visitor fine views of the city and is certainly recommended. Elsewhere, you can enjoy museums, galleries or simply sit in one of the many squares enjoying a coffee and watching the world go by.Ljubljana is not just a city of sights though: there is a vibrant nightlife supported by one of the youngest populations of any European capital. The bars and clubs offer an eclectic mix and there is surely something to suit any visitor from the cool, clubber to those wanting just a quiet drink somewhere.For more information see:www.cityguide.travel-guides.comwww.lonelyplanet.com**Belgium – not your first choice for a weekend away perhaps…;Flights: London Heathrow – Brussels International, Belgium with bmiPrice: £64 per personOrFlights: Glasgow Prestwick – Brussels International, Belgium with RyanairPrice**: £56.49 personMost people will agree that Brussels is not a particularly attractive city and as such, I would suggest you leave it as quickly as possible and get on a train (conveniently located at the airport) and make your way on the 90 minute journey to Ghent.Belgium gets a bad press from many European countries despite its lovely countryside and unspoilt towns and cities; Ghent is one of these. Much of the city’s medieval architecture remains remarkably well-preserved and wandering around the picturesque streets is a real pleasure as you walk down winding streets with stylish shops on either side – only to find yet another historic building. Ghent has the largest car-free area of any Belgian city so it is ideal for visitors exploring on foot.If walking is not your thing, then perhaps take a boat ride down Ghent’s canals. These offer an excellent way to get to know the city and also offer an attractive backdrop for a bite to eat or a drink in the many cafés and restaurants.Belgium is famous for its beer and there is no shortage of bars where a bewildering array of choice is available. A large student population ensures that there are always places open and you can be guaranteed a good night out courtesy of the friendly and helpful locals.For more information see:www.travel-library.comwww.world66.comPrices correct as at January 2008ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedHow to search for flights with Skyscanner’s new Facebook Messenger botIntroducing Skyscanner’s latest flight search innovation: the Skyscanner bot for Facebook Messenger.
