2 UK stocks from my ‘best shares to buy now’ list

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The uncertain economic outlook may mean that some investors are unsure about buying UK stocks at the present time. For example, they could suffer from weak operating conditions, and may even deliver negative returns.However, the risks posed by an uncertain economic performance may have been priced into the valuations of many FTSE 100 stocks. As such, they could offer favourable risk/reward opportunities on a long-term basis.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…Here are two companies that could be among the best shares to buy now because of their low valuations and capacity to benefit from a potential improving long-term economic outlook.A cheap bank among UK stocksSome of the worst-performing UK stocks over the last year have been banks such as Barclays. Its stock price is down by around 20%, even after a recent surge. Low interest rates and a tough economic outlook seem to be causing investor sentiment to weaken. This trend could continue, depending on how coronavirus affects the economy in the coming months.However, this risk appears to be factored in to the Barclays share price. The bank has a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 10, yet it’s forecast to produce a 45% rise in net profit next year. This could catalyse investor sentiment, while the prospect of a return to paying dividends may also cause interest in the stock to increase.Barclays is also reducing its costs to become more efficient. The global nature of its operations may provide some diversification benefits versus UK stocks that lack a geographical spread.One of the best shares to buy now?Another FTSE 100 stock that could be one of the best shares to buy now is Barratt. The housebuilder appears to offer good value for money relative to other UK stocks. It has a P/E ratio of 11, and is forecast to post a 10% rise in its bottom line in the next financial year.It also has a high customer satisfaction rating that may reduce potential costs in the coming years. Its strong balance sheet could mean it’s in a good position to outperform sector peers.Of course, factors such as a change in government policy towards the housing market could weigh on its future prospects. However, with other potential catalysts, such as low interest rates having the capacity to provide sound operating conditions for the housebuilding sector, the long-term outlook for the company could be relatively positive.Clearly, Barratt’s lack of international diversity means it’s very dependent on the UK for its financial returns. As such, buying other UK stocks as part of a diverse portfolio could reduce geographic risk. It may also allow an investor to capitalise on faster-growing economies from across the world. Over time, this may produce relatively high returns that have a positive impact on a portfolio’s performance.

Nightingale House Hospice wins Innovation in Income Generation Award

first_imgNightingale House Hospice wins Innovation in Income Generation Award Howard Lake | 24 October 2013 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Nightingale House Hospice has won the Innovation in Income Generation Award at the third annual Help the Hospices Awards.It won it for its unusual social enterprise project based on the sale of eco-friendly cardboard animal bedding.Income from cardboard boxesThe award-winning intiative came about when the hospice came across a cardboard baling and shredding machine for animal bedding. It saw it as an opportunity to set up a social enterprise and develop a new and sustainable income stream.The machine had been used for the training of long-term unemployed people and people with special needs to work in a factory. Although selling the bedding was not the hospice’s primary objective, research into animal bedding indicated that it could prove a source of income.Corrugated cardboard is proving a cost-effective alternative to traditional straw products due to the cost and availability of straw. Corrugated cardboard has all the properties of straw as well as higher absorption and good insulation. It is also environmentally friendly as it can be spread on fields in the same way as straw products.The first phase of the business focused on horse owners within a 50 mile radius of the hospice. The second phase involved reduced pack sizes for the small animal market.Initial set-up costs were £10,000, which covered the cost of purchasing the machine and moving it to the Wrexham area. Overheads were kept low by moving the hospice’s retail shop distribution centre to new and larger premises which could be shared with the social enterprise.John Savage, CEO of Nightingale House Hospice, said that in their first full year Ecozorb Animal Bedding Solutions Ltd are expecting sales of £30,000 and a profit of £12,000 – £15,000. Over the first five years they are looking to grow the business to a turnover in excess of £60,000 generating profits in the region of £25,000 a year.About the Help the Hospices AwardsThe Innovation in Income Generation Award was announced together with the winners of awards for Innovation in Volunteering and Innovation in Clinical Practice.The Help the Hospices Awards are supported by The National Gardens Scheme, which opens 3,800 gardens of quality, character and interest to the public each year. Since 1996 the National Gardens Scheme has donated £2.6 million to hospice care and is the largest funder of Help the Hospices work.Photo: corrugated cardboard by Creative Nature Media on Shutterstock.com Advertisement Tagged with: Awards Trading  27 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1last_img read more

Open letter to prime minister about freedom of information reforms

Media offences must be decriminalized without delay if Somalia is to enjoy freedom of information and its benefits.Last year was a particularly difficult one for Somali journalists. Somalia fell 11 places in the latest Reporters Without Borders press index and is now ranked 175th out of 179 countries. A total of 18 journalists were killed in bombings or targeted murders in 2012, making it the deadliest year in the Somali media’s history.The vulnerability of journalists is reinforced by the failure to punish those responsible for the crimes against them. No investigation has so far been conducted into any of last year’s 18 murders. As reform of the police and judicial authorities is one of your government’s announced priorities, we urge you to quickly adopt significant measures to combat this impunity and to protect journalists.The decriminalization of media offences and the protection of journalists would enable Somalia to face the human rights and development challenges ahead with the credibility that democracies derive from their ability to guarantee freedom of information. Your government’s recent statements allow us to hope that 2013 will see a renewal of human rights and media freedom in Somalia.Sincerely, RSF_en RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region News RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists January 8, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Shannon Airport will play a key role in redressing economic imbalance

first_imgFacebook Shannon Airport Limerick Chamber has said that aviation must be one of the key focus areas for the government if it is to redress the current economic imbalance between the Dublin region and the rest of the country.In its submission to the National Planning Framework (NPF), ‘Ireland 2040 – Our Plan’, the Chamber said that in the long-term, regional cities on the western half of the island will play a key role in the national economy but policy must be put in place to direct that correction.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Two key areas highlighted in the Chamber submission for promotion under the NPF were Shannon Airport and the Shannon Estuary.  “It is the single most important piece of planning in the interest of the wider nation that any government will take on in our lifetime.  Minister Coveney must be congratulated on initiating this but we have to get it right,” the submission read.“We have an economy about to tip over on one side almost and the NPF is the opportunity to redress that. To do that we must create policy that will create an environment for the regions to fulfil their potential, create greater opportunity in the regions and relieve the burden from Dublin.“There’s a direct correlation between airport growth and regional growth.  Right now, the DAA monopoly is mopping up the growth, with 86% of the market up from 81% five years ago. In the meantime, Cork’s market share has dropped alarming from 10% to 6.5% and Shannon to a lesser degree, from 5.9% to 5.5%.  If the regions are to grow, which is essential, these airports must grow their market share. If they don’t, it can only lead to more growth in and pressure on Dublin and less growth in the regions.  It must be dealt with,” he said.The Chamber submission called for current aviation policy to be updated and aligned with the objectives of the NPF: “If the NPF is to be the guiding document for the development of our country, with a focus on supporting effective regional development and our second tier cities, it is vital that the 2015 National Aviation Policy should be updated to align with it,” the document read.“Currently, much of the growth in passenger numbers is centred on Dublin Airport, which is further adding to its monopolistic position.  Unregulated growth of Dublin Airport’s market share will not be in the national interest and will require careful regulation in the future if the Limerick, Galway and Cork cities are to drive their regions’ development in terms of attracting FDI, developing tourism and supporting indigenous industry.” Email Linkedin Sad day for Limerick and Mid-West following Aer Lingus announcement – Mayor Michael Collins Twitter Previous articleBeyond the neon runesNext articleFashion Knitwear collection showcases LSAD student’s talent Editor Shannon Airport “has been abandoned” RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Printcenter_img TAGSLIMERICK ChamberNational Aviation PolicyNational Planning FrameworkShannon airport One of the world’s most unusual aircraft arrives at Shannon Airport Aer Lingus announcement for Shannon base – Limerick Chamber statement WhatsApp Advertisement Aer Lingus needs to clarify Shannon plans – Crowe BusinessNewsPoliticsShannon Airport will play a key role in redressing economic imbalanceBy Editor – May 26, 2017 966 Urgent action needed to ensure Regional Air Connectivity last_img read more

Addressing Student Debt and Homebuying Habits

first_img September 23, 2019 1,993 Views Doug Duncan serves as the SVP and Chief Economist at Fannie Mae and he is responsible for forecasts and analysis of the economy, housing, and mortgage markets. He also oversees strategic research on the potential impact of external factors on the housing industry. Under Duncan’s lead, Fannie Mae’s Economic & Strategic Research Group won the NABE Outlook Award, presented for the most GDP and Treasury note yield forecasts in both 2015 and 2016—the first recipient to be honored two years in a row.Duncan was named one of Bloomberg/Business Week’s “50 Most Powerful People in Real Estate.” He recently sat down with DS News to discuss how buyers can take advantage of the low-inventory environment, the impact student debt is having on housing, and how a recession could impact millennials coming into the housing market. How is student debt impacting first-time homebuyers?The evidence we saw was that people were buying [homes] at a point in time when they had amortized enough of it [student debt] so that their debt-to-income ratio wasn’t an issue. Simply because you have student debt doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t get a mortgage. There is a significant cohort of folks for whom that’s not an issue.However, if you’ve got the student debt and you didn’t get the terminal degree, that’s a problem. Our data has found that those folks with student debt and no degree have less probability of being a homebuyer than people who never went to college and have no student debt.How will millennial homebuyers be impacted if we do see another recession or economic downturn?This cohort of young people is the most conservative we’ve seen in a long time. Fannie Mae has data that shows the share of millennials paying more than 30% of their income for their housing is much lower in the past, which means they’ll be more resilient to a downturn. Their debt-to-income ratio is lower than previous cohorts would have been. So that on the credit side is a real positive.Millennials are an incredibly credentialed group when it comes to education, making them employable even in a downturn. So, they might be in okay shape. If unemployment rises, house prices are not going to be going up as rapidly and demand may be reduced because of the rise in unemployment. The Fed is going to ease and interest rates will fall. With slowing house prices and lower interest rates, if you’re still employed, it could be a pretty good time to buy a house. It depends where you are in the job categories that are damaged by a recession. We run stress scenarios and the current stress scenario we’ve run this year is one of a regional recession. The last downturn was a national recession, but we think this one is likely going to be regional.You might get some slowdown in markets where there’s shipping. That is related to imports and exports. In a recession, energy demand would probably fall, so you might get some impact in energy-rich regions which could see a decline in [home] prices.  Addressing Student Debt and Homebuying Habits Tagged with: Expenses Home Buying HOUSING loans Millennials mortgage Student Debt Expenses Home Buying HOUSING loans Millennials mortgage Student Debt 2019-09-23 Mike Albanese Previous: Xactware and RES.NET Partner for Digital Asset Management Next: Examining the Single-Family Rental Market Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Mike Albanese Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Addressing Student Debt and Homebuying Habits Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agocenter_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

1-year-old daughter of Indiana police officer dies from falling off cruise ship in Puerto Rico: Officials

first_imgALEXIUZ/iStock (NEW YORK) — The 1-year-old daughter of an Indiana police officer died on Sunday after falling from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship docked in Puerto Rico, officials said.The little girl, who was traveling with her grandparents and parents, was playing with her grandfather on the pool level of the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas when she fell from a window, investigators believe, according to the Puerto Rico Department of Public Safety.Details on how she fell are still under investigation, authorities said.The cruise ship was docked at the Pan American dock in San Juan at the time, the department of public safety said.The Puerto Rico prosecutor has been conducting interviews.The young girl was the daughter of a South Bend police officer, according to the department.“The South Bend Police Department offers its sincerest condolences to Officer Alan Wiegand and his family during this difficult time following the tragic loss of their child while in Puerto Rico,” the department said in a statement. “The department asks the community to pray for the entire Wiegand family as they grieve and to respect their privacy.”Owen Torres, corporate communications manager with Royal Caribbean, said in a statement: “We are deeply saddened by yesterday’s tragic incident, and our hearts go out to the family. We’ve made our Care Team available to assist the family with any resources they need. Out of respect for their privacy, we do not plan to comment further on the incident.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgLettersOn 10 Feb 2004 in Personnel Today This week’s lettersYou don’t speak for me, KilroyThirty years ago, terms such as ‘nigger in the wood pile’ were considered‘normal’. Equal opportunities ambassadors were accused of ‘taking the fun outof work’ for outlawing them. Fun for whom? Nowadays, we use much more subtle ways of keeping people in their place,therein maintaining the status quo. We play on words and use language totransmit subtle messages to preserve privileged status and demonise anyone whois different. This is effectively what Robert Kilroy-Silk did when he reverted to oversimplistic, monofaceted, stereotypes of Arabs in a recent newspaper article.His subsequent attempts to redirect his comments towards ‘states’ rather thanpeople do little to negate the impact of his original message. Under the Race Relations Act, the BBC had little option but to suspendKilroy’s TV show until matters have been investigated, as requested by theCommission for Racial Equality. What surprises me is that the learned Kilroy has not been held to accountbefore now – his-ill fated article first appeared back in April 2003, butfailed to attract attention. His claim of “not intending to causeoffence” is no defence. What matters is the impact of his actions and, inthis case, the spokesperson for The Muslim Council made it clear that offencewas taken. My work as a diversity specialist involves challenging ways of thinking anddoing business that is taken for granted, as well as pushing comfort zones. Thepeople who push back with the cry of ‘political correctness gone mad’ areinvariably people with a vested interest in the status quo. For inclusion to work, undoubtedly a much broader distribution of power isneeded and this is possibly the single biggest threat to those who historicallyhave enjoyed positions of privilege. The main criteria for such positions areoften the ‘right’ colour, the ‘right’ sex, and the ‘right’ education, alongwith the ‘right’ accent. Kilroy’s comments will no doubt speak for some, as was the case with EnochPowell’s infamous ‘Rivers of blood’ speech. But not for those of us who valuethe contribution of Arabs and other marginalised groups in our society. Your‘truth’ is not mine, and you don’t speak for me, Kilroy. Tess Finch-Lees Diversity specialist, Pearn Kandola Do you support age discrimination? It would appear that Personnel Today believes in age discrimination in theworkplace. Not only do you have Stephen Burgess from Virgin Atlantic – a companynotorious for its ageist beliefs – on the judging panel for the Recruitment AdvertisingAwards (RADS), you also award the airline for one of its discriminatoryadverts. This specifically states a ridiculous upper age limit, which has nobearing on the job, except for pandering to Mr Branson’s sexist and ageistbeliefs. Martin Simpson Details supplied John Langford, RADS chairman of judges, replies: As you would expectfrom a judging panel containing a number of senior HR professionals, neitherthe age requirement nor the potentially sexist tone of some of the Virgin adsescaped comment. Indeed, on the point of age in particular, a discussion ensued as to whetherthe work should be excluded. Opinions were divided, but unless someone canadvise differently, nothing in the ads constituted a breach of employment lawas it stands, and Virgin have supportable reasons for the policy. As such, itwould have been a controversial piece of censorship to exclude Virgin on thegrounds it raised political hackles. Where would that end? It is a feature of a great deal of very good advertising that it stands alittle closer to the line than some find comfortable. The RADS judge quality ofcommunications, originality and effectiveness, not the underlying HR policy orcorporate culture. Stephen Burgess from Virgin Atlantic did not judge or in any way act as anadvocate in any categories where Virgin had an entry in the final shortlists –a rule applied to all judges. The judging criteria do allow a significant proportion of the marks awardedto be based on how well the individual judge feels the employer has compliedwith current best practice, and compliance with such issues as diversity andequality. The judges each scored this section according to their opinion. Recruitment agents need to back off I read with some amusement and interest HR Hartley’s column on recruitmentconsultants (HR Viewpoint, 27 January). I work in a town where there are close to 20 recruitment agencies. Thecompetition is fierce and the phone calls I receive as an HR recruiter arerelentless. They seem to stem from one particular breed – 20 to 25 years of age, blonde,plenty of ‘slap’ (that will infuriate one of your recent correspondents), andall desperately eager to get sole rights for my recruitment needs. Initially, I would agree to meet the agencies. I would explain about thecompany and our recruitment strategy. So it is incredibly annoying when somecompanies phone me every Friday afternoon or Monday morning asking me if I needa temp. One well-known agency has a very eager new recruit, who called to tell me shehad the perfect candidate and when would I like to interview her? My responsethat I wasn’t recruiting at the moment caused a brief intake of breath,followed by a very assertive: “Well, when will you be recruiting, I cankeep her for you?” I responded: “When I need someone”. Clearly, that was not thecorrect answer. She said she would call me back the following week to reassessmy recruitment needs. She also said she would visit me in the next week todiscuss, in person, my recruiting requirements. Is it any wonder that people like me try to avoid calls from agencies? Theyshould spend less time and money on endless silly freebies – pens, mousemats,baskets of sweets on Valentine’s Day, etc. Then maybe they could take a goodlook at how they pay their staff, rather than have them on some kind ofcommission basis, which puts pressure on them to make a sale. I tell the agencies that if I am looking to recruit, I will contact them.How hard is that to understand? My only consolation is that the agency employees usually get so frustratedthat they move on pretty quickly. The downside is that some other eager hopefulcomes on board to begin the harassment afresh. Details supplied Skills pool must be of a high standard I read with interest HR Hartley’s column (HR Viewpoint, 3 February) in whichhe chastises the Government about the poor state of the nation’s basic literacyand numeracy skills. The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) is the catalyst between business andeducation – working to reduce the differences between the skill needs ofemployers and the skills of staff. Hartley highlights two specific points. First, the very real problems the UKmust overcome with regard to basic literacy and numeracy. Second, the roletraining professionals play in overcoming skills shortages in the workplace. In that, he had described the two key points behind Modern Apprenticeships –the need to address the country’s skill standards, and the critical role of theemployer in delivering workplace training. Modern Apprenticeships allow businesses to train new or existing employees,aged 16 to 24, in the specific skill needs of their organisation. The LSCprovides funding towards training, and businesses benefit by having moreproductive staff. The Modern Apprenticeship includes essential key skills, from communicationto the application of numbers, and industry-developed vocational qualifications– resulting in a National Vocational Qualification. Modern Apprenticeships arecreated by business, for business. The LSC will spend £815m on Modern Apprenticeships over the next academicyear, and more than £900m in 2005/06. But our funding is not enough. We need employers to join us, making acommitment to introduce the Modern Apprenticeship as workplace training. This isworkplace training that has been strategically developed to address everyaspect of the skills shortage – from key skills to vocational skills – not justfor the individual business, but to ensure that the skills pool we all drinkfrom is filled to the highest standard. Gaynor Field Programme manager – work-based learning, Learning and Skills Council Mr Overell needs to check his dates Steven Overell (Off Message, 20 January) suggests Max Weber’s seminal The ProtestantWork Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism was first published in 1958. I think not. A little research soon reveals it was published in 1920, theyear of Weber’s death. But then I am old enough to remember the bad old dayswhen the IPM (as was) examination syllabus included a course of study insociology.

Bacterioplankton production in freshwater Antarctic lakes

first_img1. Bacterioplankton production was measured in the water columns of two ultra-oligotrophic, freshwater Antarctic lakes (Crooked Lake and Lake Druzhby) during an annual cycle. In both lakes bacterial production, measured by the incorporation of [H-3] thymidine, continued in winter and showed a cycle over the year. The range of production was between 0 and 479 ng C L-1 h(-1) in Crooked Lake and 0-354 ng L-1 h(-1) in Lake Druzhby. 2. Abundance and mean cell volume both varied, producing marked changes in biomass during the year, with highest biomass occurring in the winter and early spring. Biomass showed similar seasonal trends in both lakes. 3. For most of the year inorganic forms of nitrogen and phosphorus were detectable in the water columns of the lakes and were unlikely to have limited bacterial production. Dissolved organic carbon (DOC) was below 3000 mug L-1. Dissolved amino acids and carbohydrates contributed 5-25% of the DOC pool in Crooked Lake and 5-64% in Lake Druzhby. Dissolved carbohydrates were consistently low, suggesting that this may have been the preferred carbon substrate for bacterioplankton. 4. Aggregate associated bacteria had higher mean cell volume, abundances and production than freely suspended bacteria in Lake Druzhby, while in Crooked Lake aggregate associated bacteria consistently had higher mean cell volumes than free bacteria, but abundance and production were on occasion higher in free bacteria compared with aggregate associated communities. 5. The data indicated that production is limited by continuous low temperatures and the limited availability of suitable DOC substrate. However, the bacterioplankton functions year round, responding to factors other than temperature.last_img read more

Fun is the Product at Heritage Surf and Sport

first_imgDan Heritage opened his first store in Sea Isle in 1962.“We sell fun,” said Jim Hennessy of Ocean City’s Heritage Surf and Sport. “I am the luckiest guy in the world.  I couldn’t ask for a better job.”The enthusiasm is infectious throughout the Heritage stores in Sea Isle, Margate, and of course Ocean City. The original location in Sea Isle has been an institution there since it opened as the Little Wave Surf Shop 1962.  The founding Heritage family then changed the name to Heritage Surf and Sport and launched its location in their Ocean City hometown in 1978.“Our mantra is to be the best surf shop we can be,” Hennessy says. “We want to provide the best customer experience with honesty, integrity for everyone.  We want every customer to walk out of here feeling good.  If you want to ride big waves in Nicaragua we’ve got you covered.  If you want to learn to surf on a soft board we’ve got you covered.”Heritage has also embraced the skater community and provides a full range of boards, helmets, pads and clothing. Hennessy was on the advisory panel that met over a two year period in the planning stages of the new skate park, and he praised the final outcome.  “The city and the designers of the park really nailed it, coming up with more of a surf-oriented park, as compared to the street type park. It is more in line with the community.  Skating came from surfing.  At its very origin, the sport was called sidewalk surfing.”In response to the new skating market in town, Heritage offers long boards, short boards and everything in between.So what else is new at Heritage?Hennessy said this season’s clothing lines are arriving daily. “The colors are nice and vibrant,” he says.  “Blues and oranges, for example.  They are bright but normal colors, not the extra bright neons we’ve seen the last few years.”The other new additions are shorts and shirts made with a 4-way stretch type fabric.“These items are great for mobility for surfing and leisure. The fabric moves with you, not against you.”He said breathable “dri-fit” clothes continue to have a significant share of the inventory, and have begun to show up in some of the womens’ garments, as have the stretchy blended fabrics.“It’s all about being comfortable,” he says.Heritage’s main store is at 744 West Ave., a 7,000-sq. ft. paradise for the surfer or surf clothing enthusiast. They can be reached at (609) 398-6390; by email at [email protected] and online shopping is available at www.heritagesurf.com.They also have a store at 14th St. on the Boardwalk that specializes in clothing, board rentals and lessons.  Surfing lessons take place every day in the summer.  Group and individual lessons are available as are private lessons.“We will do whatever it takes to tailor the lessons to the person,” Hennessy says. “We even do birthday parties.”When he speaks of his customers, Jim waxes poetic.“We are honored to be there and help meet the needs of the surfing and skating communities,” he says.Spoken like a man who knows how to sell fun.last_img read more

Good Grain Bakery seeks £150k via crowdfunding

first_imgFree-from baker Tara Taylor has launched a crowdfunding campaign to secure £150,000 investment for her Good Grain Bakery business.Taylor said the investment would enable her to upgrade and expand the equipment at the bakery, boost its brand presence and create the capacity to launch into major grocery outlets.“For now, we’ve got the capacity to expand within our current premises, so we’d be looking to upgrade our equipment – which we need a deposit for,” Taylor told British Baker.“We’d also like to increase our shift output so we can run two shifts and produce up to four times what we currently do, as well as introduce some automation in the packing department.”The campaign is currently being run through Crowdcube, which gives businesses the opportunity to gain investment shares for 30 days after 20% of the target has been reached.Taylor set the target investment as £150k but hopes she can over-fund and reach a total of £250k.To support this, she has been promoting the page on social media.“The idea is that you raise the money through your own network of people, so I’ve really promoted the campaign on LinkedIn, and I’ve made promotional videos to share on there. I’m also using sponsored campaigns, emails, and talking to friends, family and customers,” Taylor added.Investors paying over £5,000 will receive a share in the business, and those under that amount will receive preferential shares.last_img read more

Students in Rome celebrate Francis

first_imgWhen Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio stepped onto the Vatican balcony to reveal himself as the new leader of the Catholic Church on Wednesday, several Saint Mary’s students waiting in St. Peter’s Square witnessed this historic moment. Sophomores Nikki Charter, Lauren Osmanski and Tori Wilbraham are participating in the College’s study abroad semester in Rome. Charter, a communications major, said seeing the result of the conclave’s decision has been the highlight of her semester.   “This entire semester has been an absolute whirlwind,” Charter said. “The conclave has been the best part of my experience so far. Words cannot describe what it felt like to be in [St. Peter’s] Square and in the midst of it all.” The three students said the excitement began when they attended the opening conclave Mass on March 12th.  Wilbraham, a religious studies major, said the Mass’s atmosphere felt electric.   “Knowing I was in the room with the future pope at that Mass was very exciting,” Wilbraham said. “You could really start to feel an atmosphere of uncertainty and excitement after the Mass finished and the cardinals proceeded to start the conclave.” After the Mass, the students said they waited anxiously to see white smoke billowing from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel, an indication that the conclave had made a decision. Osmamski, a business major, said their thoughts and prayers remained focused on the conclave.   “We, like the rest of the world, had to wait to see the smoke,” Osmanski said. “We waited and waited. We prayed the Holy Spirit would guide the conclave and white smoke would appear soon. “ While waiting, Charter and other members of the abroad program draped United States and Saint Mary’s flags around their arms. “I was proud to represent my country and my school,” Charter said. “Words cannot express how much I love Saint Mary’s College. This school empowers young Catholic women. Saint Mary’s gave me the opportunity to be here for this experience and I could not be more thankful.” Osmanski said when the smoke appeared around 8 p.m. local time, everyone in the crowd cheered, “It’s white. It’s white.” “We sprinted forward when we saw the white smoke,” Osmanski said. “We wanted to be as close as we could to the balcony so we could see the new pope emerge.” Charter said the crowd was “buzzing” and attempting to guess who would be the next leader of the Catholic Church. “When the cardinals first came out, the crowd was cheering with excitement and then almost [immediately] the crowd fell silent,” Charter said. “Thousands of people were in that square and every single person was silent, waiting for one man to appear on the balcony. At that moment, waiting for the new pope to emerge, you could really feel the power of prayer and faith.” Wilbraham said when Pope Francis first walked onto the balcony, her heart stopped and she “took a deep breath in awe” of this man. “It was as if no one could say anything for a couple of seconds,” Wilbraham said. “Everyone was in true awe of this man. I thought to myself, ‘This is real. This is happening. The seat is no longer empty. We have a father of our church again.’” Osmanski said she first did not understand the official announcement introducing the new pope to the world. “Around us people were yelling ‘Argentina. Argentina’,” Osmanski said. “That is when we made the connection and were more than happy our new pope is non-European.” Osmanski said everyone around her was excited about “this breath of fresh air.” “Because Pope Francis is from Argentina, he will bring a new perspective to the table,” Osmanski said. “This is important and sculpts a more inclusive community. Catholic roots run deeper than Europe and I truly believe this will benefit the Church in the greatest way possible.” Charter said Pope Francis seems like a humble man who will take the Church in a new direction. “He will lead the Church into a new era,” Charter said. “When he stood on that balcony he showed the world that the Catholic community is still strong.” Wilbraham said the entire experience has reminded her of the international Catholic community. “This whole experience makes you realize that this Church is more than you and your own personal faith,” Wilbraham said. “It is even more than the people of your parish.” All three students said their experiences in Rome have started them on a spiritual journey of a lifetime. “None of us thought it would be such a spiritual journey,” Wilbraham said. “The growth in my faith is the biggest thing I will take with me when I leave to return to the States. I was able to witness historic events with the company of some of my best friends. Everyone on this program was able to witness the start of a new era in the Church – and for that I am very thankful.”last_img read more

The Snite Museum of Art, an essential part of campus

first_imgThe Snite Museum of Art sits in the middle of campus, surrounded by the Duncan Student Center, DeBartolo Hall and O’Shaughnessy Hall.Ann Knoll, associate director of the Snite Museum of Art, said the arts have long had a presence on campus and continue to benefit Notre Dame, which is emphasized by the Snite’s central location.The Snite saw its beginnings in 1874, when Fr. Sorin traveled to Rome and met Italian artist Luigi Gregori, then working as an art restorer at the Vatican. Fr. Sorin brought Gregori back to South Bend to decorate the interiors of the Main Building. At the time, Knoll said the Main Building had classrooms, student living quarters, a library and, thanks to Gregori and Fr. Sorin, a museum.As the University grew, artworks were housed in a number of places, Knoll said, until Notre Dame constructed its first building devoted solely to the arts, the O’Shaughnessy Gallery. Three years after its 1952 creation, the University expanded its art collection into yet another new building, the Mestrovic Sculpture Studio.Some 20 years later, in 1976, the Snite grew into what it is today with the help of Frederick B. Snite Sr.’s donation made in honor of his son, who died in 1954.“This very generous gift enabled the Snite Museum of Art to be opened to the public in November of 1980,” Knoll said. “The building links the O’Shaughnessy Galleries and the Mestrovic Sculpture Studio. So, it’s is really three different buildings built at different times to form the current Snite Museum.”The museum doesn’t end there, she said. The newest addition to the Snite, opened in 2012, is the Charles B. Hayes Family Sculpture Park, she said, which is now home to 12 sculptures. The University recently received a lead gift for another addition: the future Raclin Murphy Museum of Art.“Of course, we’re all excited for the next phase, which is the new Raclin Murphy Museum of Art at Notre Dame,” Knoll said. “We have been busy working with a New York architect and the University’s architect office to plan the new Raclin Murphy, which will be in the sculpture park.”The Snite’s presence on campus goes beyond a growing physical area, she said, as it also offers many activities for students such as monthly yoga sessions, trivia nights and MFA student exhibitions.“These activities are much more interactive than just, you know, reading about something in a book, or staring at it through a display case,” Knoll said. “We’re trying to offer things that are different on campus in terms of not only learning about art, but making art, such as self-screening a canvas bag or t-shirt.”While the Snite offers many activities for students on campus, students can also take the opportunity to look at the many types of artwork it showcases. Freshman Gabby Keller said she has already visited the Snite with friends to take a break from studies and look at some of the different art it has to offer.“Visiting the Snite is really interesting because it’s almost a break from normal campus — it lets me touch in on my creative side, which I don’t often get to use in calculus or chemistry,” Keller said. “I can go look at pictures or sculptures or photographs, and it’s even free.”The Snite tries to add to students’ educational experience, Knoll said, whether it be by exposing them to creativity or advancing their current classes, especially those in foreign languages. The museum can also be a resource for research materials, she said.“A lot of students come here, especially in the art [and] art history and design program, to do original research,” she said. “Bridget Hoyt, one of our two curators of education, manages to find objects in our collection that students can look at and relate to their curriculum.”Knoll said students should view the Snite as a place they can use both academically and recreationally.“The Snite is a different atmosphere than the library or just sitting in your dorm room,” Knoll said. “It’s a beautiful environment to learn and to study in. We are a place for students to take a moment to meditate, to relax, to use the artwork as inspiration. That’s not something you necessarily have in any other buildings on campus.”Tags: Charles B.

CFO Focus: Best practices in benefits pre-funding

first_img 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr More than 10 years ago, National Credit Union Administration Rule 701.19 went into effect. It gave federally chartered credit unions the ability to purchase investments that would otherwise be impermissible under parts 703 and 704 of NCUA’s rules and regulations, as long as these investments directly relate to the credit unions’ obligation or future obligation to support employee benefit plans, including such things as health insurance and 401(k) plans.Over the years, there hasn’t been much discussion about the regulatory expectations, which include board oversight and approval of a credit union’s associated investment policy used to fund the pre-funding plan. This is due in large part to the Great Recession, which occurred shortly after 701.19’s implementation. At the time, the financial crisis dampened credit unions’ interest in new types of investments.Now, with the improving economic environment and the increasing need to retain and attract top talent, credit union interest in investments with higher yields to help improve employee benefits has grown. So has regulator interest. Examiner directives related to lack of due diligence and/or board and management oversight on pre-funding arrangements are now much more prevalent.In the current environment, we suggest credit unions take three steps: continue reading »last_img read more

Rain doesn’t stop 2nd annual Pastor Lyle Ward Memorial Fundraiser

first_imgChapter president Curtis Hammond said the money raised will go toward putting the kids in camps and giving them real life experiences. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – On Saturday, The Punishers Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club put on the 2nd Annual Pastor Lyle Ward Memorial Fundraiser. The club hopes the fundraiser can return to normal next summer. “My family adopted four foster care kids out of the system, so foster care is huge in my family,” Hammond said. “The foster care system around here needs as much help as we can give them so that’s why we do this event.” Hammond, who is also the grandson of Pastor Ward, told 12 News the foster care system has always been very important to his family. Due to COVID-19, this year’s fundraiser was a drive through barbecue. From late morning to early afternoon cars flooded the parking lot of the Lowe’s in Binghamton to get a barbecue dinner. The fundraiser raises money for kids in the foster care system in Broome County. last_img read more

CAUTIOUS RESPONSE: Regional leaders give measured response to death of al-Qaeda leader

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! Share BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – Caribbean governments have been giving a cautious response to the death of Osama bin laden, the leader of the terrorist group al-Qaeda, who was killed by a special United States military unit in Pakistan on Sunday.While the 15-member Caribbean Community (CARICOM) grouping is yet to issue a joint statement on the matter, individual regional countries have been making their position known on the issue.Grenada’s Prime Minister Tillman Thomas, who is also the CARICOM Chairman, said “one thing that is for sure, his death will demorallise the group and there is the likelihood of different fractions emerging because the person they looked on as a leader is no more.“He was the person who guided the members and he will not be replaced very easily”.Barbados Prime Minister Fruendel Stuart is quoted in the DAILY NATION newspaper as saying that his country, like all other countries worldwide would be interested in Bin laden’s death.“Barbados does not get itself involved in disputes of this kind. Our foreign policy is still what it always used to be: ‘friends of all, satellites of none’. But we cannot bury our heads in the sand. We are a tourist economy and if a terrorist element anywhere in the world feels offended by something that another country has done and the residents of that country come to Barbados, we have to face the reality to take all the necessary precautions,” he said.The Prime Minister said the best Barbados could do in the present circumstance was to hope the situation quickly settled itself and that the fallout was not too great.“Let’s be frank about it. The relationship between the extremists and the United States, Britain and Australia is not a very good relationship at the moment, and we just have to factor in that there could be could be reprisals,” Stuart said.He warned that “none of us is insulated from any of this and we just have to take all the precautions that we can to protect ourselves from the worst possible effects of the events of the last 24 hours”.Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar told reporters that bin Laden’s killing created a complicated scenario for the world.“Half the world is rejoicing and there are others who are not rejoicing. It is a very complicated issue but for the free world there is rejoicing,” she said.Trinidad and Tobago has indicated that it is likely to beef up security at its embassies in the United States and Britain.“At the moment, there is no indication that there is any threat to Trinidad and Tobago, none whatsoever,” she said.Fourteen Trinidadians died in the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington on September 11, 2001.Earlier, Jamaica said it welcomed the death bin Laden, saying it is satisfied that justice had been served.“For many years the world has had to live with the threat of international terrorism and to suffer the wanton assaults on innocent men, women, and children that have destroyed countless lives, wounded thousands, and left a legacy of pain and hurt that abide in our individual and collective memories,” Foreign Minister Dr Ken Baugh said in a statement.“The Government of Jamaica is satisfied that justice has indeed been served by the execution of Osama bin Laden by US Special Forces and commends the US Government and military for their resolve and tenacity in the fight against international terrorism.”The Dominica government is warning against complacency by the international community in the aftermath of the killing bin Laden.Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office, Alvin Bernard said the Roosevelt Skerrit led administration was pleased with the recent development but said the fight against terrorist activity should continue unabated.“From the Dominica perspective, the government of Dominica has always taken a stance against terrorism and has taken the initiative to implement legislation to deal with acts of terrorism.“However, while the events over the last 72 hrs would have provided relief and consolation for all concerned it is no cause for complacency. This is because ten years have elapsed since the events of 9/11 and during that interval a lot has happened as the movement of al Qaeda has become more entrenched and more pervasive,” Bernard said.But the Dominica government is urging the international community not to sit back and think the fight against international terrorism has ended.“I think in fact we have to become even more resolved against this phenomenon,” Bernard said, adding that he expects security to be increased at ports of entries as a necessary precaution against increased terrorist activity.“I expect the inconveniences of travel but I recognize it is a necessary inconvenience for all concerned and we ought not to let our guard down because I believe the whole phenomenon of terrorism is immoral,” he said.center_img Tweet NewsRegional CAUTIOUS RESPONSE: Regional leaders give measured response to death of al-Qaeda leader by: – May 4, 2011 34 Views   one commentlast_img read more

Suarez surprised by Arsenal bid

first_img Press Association The Reds rejected the Gunners’ offer last week but agent Pere Guardiola told managing director Ian Ayre and manager Brendan Rodgers at a meeting on Monday that his client wanted Champions League football. “One has to value that despite everything that’s happened one is still in the market… that clubs still value players for what they can do on the field,” he said about Arsenal’s bid. Liverpool striker Luis Suarez admits he was surprised by Arsenal’s £30million bid for him but took it as a sign that opinion on his talent has not been lost among all the controversy.center_img “That makes me think that I can come back and do things well over there. They (the press) have given it to me in England but, like we say, I’ve given them stuff to eat because if I hadn’t done anything then probably they wouldn’t have been as bad. “But football is like that and you have to be accustomed to all that and it’s good that the English clubs still want me.” Real Madrid, whom Suarez expressed an interest in last month during a series of interviews which put his future at Anfield in serious doubt, remain favourites although they have yet to make any approach. After Monday’s talks it appears Guardiola will have to find clubs willing to bid over £40million and then take those offers to Liverpool. But Suarez claims he has a number of avenues to explore. “There are a few options and the club knows that. Are there any concrete options? No, so far there hasn’t been any,” he told Uruguayan radio station Sport 890. “There are two or three clubs who I think are willing and the club knows that. My agent is in charge, he knows what I want. “I have to present myself on July 21 to Liverpool for their tour of Australia but no one knows what could happen. I’ve already said what I have to say and initially I have to be there on the 21 but a maybe a phone call one day can change all your plans.” last_img read more

633 Divers Set World Record Cleaning Ocean Floor Near Deerfield Beach

first_imgAnother Guinness World Record has been broken, and it happened this weekend right here in South Florida.On Saturday, 633 scuba divers spent part of their morning scooping up trash from the bottom of the ocean near the Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier.Guinness adjudicator Michael Empric confirmed the record-breaking number of participants, saying, “I actually stood there and clicked off everyone as they got in the water.” He added, “It doesn’t matter what happens today with the Guinness World Records. What really matters is that everyone is out there cleaning up around the pier and trying to improve the community.”Divers entered the ocean in groups and were required to stay in the water for at least 15 minutes to be counted.Although the total amount of crash collected is still being counted, diver and environmentalist RJ Harper says the divers recovered 1,600 pounds of lead fishing weights alone.Until Saturday’s event, the previous record for the most divers participating in an underwater cleanup was held by Ahmed Gabr, a former Egyptian Army scuba diver, who joined a team of 614 divers in the Red Sea in Egypt four years ago.last_img read more

Valencia Close Gap On La Liga Leaders With Betis’ Thrashing

first_imgValencia’s recent renaissance in the Spanish La Liga continued on Sunday after they thrashed their hosts Real Betis 6-3 in their Matchday 8 clash.Star players like Geoffrey Kondogbia, in-form Simone Zaza and Santi Mina got the goals for Valencia, who nearly squandered a 4-0 lead during the game. Arsenal loanee Joel Campbell started the fightback for the home side and two more goals were scored to put the scoreline at a slim 4-3 but Valencia showed their superiority with two late goals for a 6-3 victory.The win means Valencia (18 points) have moved into the top two and also close the gap to within four points of league leaders Barcelona while Real Betis (13 points) have fallen from 6th to 9th because of the heavy defeat.RelatedSpanish La Liga Wrap: Real Madrid, Valencia Close Gap On Leaders Barcelona With VictoriesDecember 10, 2017In “Europe”La Liga Review: Atletico Thrash Sevilla To Trim Gap On Leaders BarcelonaFebruary 26, 2018In “Europe”Spanish La Liga Review: Atletico, Valencia Narrow Gap On Leaders Barcelona With Respective VictoriesJanuary 7, 2018In “Europe”last_img read more

British Grand Prix: F1 to organise anti-racism protest after criticism

first_imgFormula 1 will organise an anti-racism protest before Sunday’s British Grand Prix following criticisms of the sport’s approach to the subject.The move comes in the wake of Lewis Hamilton accusing F1 and governing body the FIA of “lacking leadership” on the issue after the last race in Hungary.F1 is to specify a time in the schedule for the protest.It will allow drivers and other personnel to demonstrate their opposition to racism.Senior figures and drivers were concerned by poorly co-ordinated protests at the last two races.The sport began the season proclaiming an anti-racism and inclusivity campaign – and at the opening race in Austria, a demonstration was organised at the front of the grid before the national anthem for drivers to show their support. All drivers wore “end racism” T-shirts, other than Hamilton, whose said “Black Lives Matter”.Most drivers took the knee alongside Hamilton, employing a gesture that originated in American football’s NFL as a protest against racism and police brutality. But six drivers who were not comfortable with what they saw as the political connotations of that action chose to remain standing.At the subsequent two races, no time was allocated in the schedule and drivers ended up running to make it in time, some not managing it, and the protest not being effectively covered by the television broadcast.Hamilton said after winning in Hungary: “F1 did an OK job at the first race. It’s not good enough in terms of what you see in other sports, but still it was a step forwards. And then it’s almost like it’s gone off the agenda after that.“It’s lacking leadership – and ultimately, we perform in a sport. There needs to be leadership from the top. They need to come out with: ‘This is what we’re going to do and we want you all to be part of it.’ And there is none of that.” Before the British Grand Prix, F1 and the FIA have told the drivers and teams that there will be a specific time for the anti-racism protest allocated in the pre-race schedule.All drivers will be required to assemble and T-shirts will again be provided, but it will be left to each individual to demonstrate their support in their own way.After winning in Hungary, Hamilton said part of the problem with the chaotic protests was that “from a drivers’ point of view, many people seem to be of the opinion that they have done it once and they’re not going to do it again”.Hamilton also implied that some of the objection to the protest in general – and taking the knee specifically – may be caused by personal animosity towards him.“I try not to lean so much on the drivers because I don’t want them to feel it’s me who’s doing it, because that probably could be in some cases the reason they don’t want to do it – because they think I’m doing it,” the Mercedes driver said. “But I don’t think it’s being taken seriously. There are perhaps people who have not grown up around it so don’t understand it, and there are those that think because of that, ‘it doesn’t affect me’. I have heard those comments: ‘It doesn’t do anything for me, so why should I do it?’“But it’s not about me and it’s not about you. It’s about this fight that the world… people out there who are experiencing discrimination. That’s what we’re fighting for – we’re fighting for change in organisations.”last_img read more

Kawhi Leonard scores 30, as Clippers overwhelm Lakers with depth in opener

first_img How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed While the All-Star teammate he helped recruit via trade, Paul George, was laid up on the bench in a dapper outfit topped with a bowtie, Leonard was complemented by returning Clipper Lou Williams, who skipped his way to 21 points. Harrell, Williams’ chief bench partner, finished strong with 17. Maurice Harkless and JaMychal Green were also convincing threats from the wings, combining for 22 points.The performance was enough that Clippers coach Doc Rivers said he thought his already stellar returning bench contributors could get even better as a unit.The Lakers’ fault was not in their stars, who combined for 43 points in their debut, but in their weakened supporting cast, which was without both Kyle Kuzma and Rajon Rondo, who couldn’t play because of injuries. The Lakers’ bench was only 7 for 21 from the field. The Lakers’ monstrous lineups also counted for little on the boards, as the Clippers outrebounded them 45-41.The exception was Leonard’s former Spurs and Raptors teammate, Danny Green. The 32-year-old swingman lit up the arc in a splashy third quarter, scoring 18 of his team-leading 28 points while bringing the Lakers to an 85-all tie after they had trailed by as much as 14. Green’s unlikely night vaulted him above Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (27 points) in the franchise record books for most points in a Lakers debut.“I was just trying to play basketball, trying to win the game,” Green said. “Find shots that you start hitting, you find some more. But it wasn’t like, ‘Let’s create a spark,’ it’s ‘Let’s get back in this game, let’s create a rhythm.’”Green’s 7-for-9 night from 3-point range, however, polished an otherwise uninspiring night for the Lakers’ incoming class of shooters: The rest of the team was just 6 for 24 on deep shots.In the end, even the Lakers’ stars themselves tired. Davis and James shot poorly in the second half, in particular, finishing a combined 15 for 40 from the field. James finished with nine rebounds and eight assists, while Davis had a 10-rebound double-double.After a week of playing down the potential rivalry emerging in their own backyard, the Lakers tried to move on from their season-opening loss just as briskly. Davis said the team wasn’t “down or upset” after the loss, and James echoed the relatively positive sentiments.“We did some good things tonight, we did some not-so-good things,” James said. “And that happens in game one. Especially for a new club.”A night meant to anoint a new, more hopeful Clippers era began with a painful reminder of the franchise’s longtime place in Los Angeles. As the team unfurled a new hype video and introduced a Leonard-led lineup, Lakers fans infiltrating the big night rained down boos – even as Leonard cradled the mic for a pregame address.Leonard said the booing didn’t register. He just raised his voice.“I just heard loud noise, so I was just trying to be as loud as I can,” he said. “I wasn’t sure if the Clippers fans were being loud, or if it was Lakers fans.”Related Articles PreviousLos Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James, right, is defended by Los Angeles Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard during the first half of an NBA basketball game Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2019, in Los Angeles.

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)ExpandLOS ANGELES — On the first night of the NBA season, the spotlight shone brightly on Staples Center.The sellout crowd, split in their loyalties, screamed for the Kawhi Leonard stepbacks, the twirling Anthony Davis jumpers, the LeBron James chase-down block in the third quarter. The sheer number of highlights alone was worth a whole summer of hype that has settled in Southern California and seen the price of tickets for games creep up for both would-be contenders.But for all the star power that now has L.A. pro basketball bursting at the seams, Tuesday’s season opener was a reminder that it’s not just about the headliners.While Leonard led the effort with 30 points in his first outing as a Clipper, his teammates backed him up. Their second unit, which last year was the best in the NBA, outscored the Laker reserves by an overwhelming 60-19 margin in the 112-102 victory. Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img The game itself started with similar gusto for the designated visitors. James twirled into the paint to kiss a layup off the glass for the first points of the season. Davis got his first points as a Laker at the free-throw line, but twisted past Patrick Patterson for his first basket and gave the Lakers an 11-point lead early.The Lakers said their defense broke down the more Leonard started working his midrange game: Guards had less success funneling attackers down to bigs, who didn’t step up enough to stop them. Davis called it “a two-way street” of a defensive letdown.“I didn’t like anything about our defense in the second quarter,” Frank Vogel said following his first game as Lakers coach. “We weren’t good enough on the ball and we weren’t good enough with our help. So, that quarter probably cost us the game.”The negative feedback from disgruntled Lakers fans never quite ended, but the Clippers’ win ended up drowning out the rest of the noise. After the build-up, which Rivers said escalated in a “prizefight way,” he felt his team showed the same character it had from last season – albeit with a few very special new pieces.“What I saw in our team was just overall toughness,” Rivers said. “They took us with a punch to start, but we just kept moving forward.” Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersIt was telling that the Clippers achieved a clinching 11-2 run during a three-minute stretch while Leonard cooled his heels on the bench. He’s on his kind of team: One that bills itself with a defensive intensity before anything else.“We got players on the team that want to play defense pretty much,” Leonard said. “We got some big bodies, we’re long, as long as we come out and be aggressive and play with our active hands, be in spots, it’s gonna be tough for people to score on us when it’s in a half-court.”In their own half-court sets, Leonard helped make the Clippers hard to guard himself.At his apex, Leonard was unstoppable – hitting seven straight shots in the first half to lead a 25-point swing in his team’s favor. Given the tough assignment of guarding the reigning NBA Finals MVP, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was hardly a hindrance as Leonard muscled his way to his spots, memorably finishing his run with a dunk through traffic.“For him to be out there on the floor and just be able to get a feel for him and what he can do on both ends of the floor felt amazing,” Montrezl Harrell said. “It’s what it’s about, it’s what we’ve been building up to.” Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions last_img read more

In the final match of the day, Uganda notched up its second victory of the series when it downed Malaysia by four wickets.The feature of the fourth round action was a match-winning spell of fast bowling by Oman’s Bilal Khan (five for 19) against Singapore, excellent half-centuries by Canada’s Dhanuka Pathirana (87) and Bhavindu Adhihetty (67) against the USA, and an unbeaten century by Uganda’s Mohammad Irfan against Malaysia.With the top two sides from this event to progress to the ICC World Cricket League Division 2, Canada and Oman will go head to head against Singapore and Malaysia respectively on Monday, while host Uganda will take on the USA.Victories for table-topper Canada and Oman, who are separated by a fraction of a point on Net Run-Rate, will mean the two will take one step closer to their ambitions of playing in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The USA and Malaysia are already out of contention for promotion to Division 2, but Uganda and Singapore can make the event interesting if they can win their respective matches and Malaysia can turn the tables on Oman.At Kyambogo Cricket Oval, Kampala, Canada, put into bat by the USA, posted a convincing 256 for eight in 50 overs after Pathirana and Adhihetty added 64 runs for the third wicket. Their partnership came at the back of a 74-run first wicket stand between Adhihetty and Nitish Kumar (30). Pathirana, for the sixth wicket, put on crucial 58 runs with Nikhil Dutta (31 not out).Pathirana faced 94 balls for his 87 and hit nine four and a six, while Adhihetty’s 93-ball 67 included seven fours.In its run-chase, the USA was never in the hunt after half the side was back in the hut at the score of 61. It eventually was dismissed for 160 in 43 overs, thanks to a 35-run last wicket partnership between Elmore Hutchinson (29) and Nosthush Kengije.For Canada, Rizwan Cheema was the pick of the bowlers with three for 31, while Saad Bin Zadar bagged two for 29 and Satsimranjit Dhindsa scooped two for 19.Canada captain, Nitish Kumar said: “I mean it was a pressure game and we had to win this to do well in the future. Our boys did really well.”USA captain Steven Taylor said: “We won the toss and we thought when we put them into bat, we could restrict them to a low total. But they got away at the end, getting 256. In reply, we never had any partnerships throughout the game and Canada stuck to their game plan, batted well and got their wickets. Hats off to Canada.”At Entebbe Cricket Oval, Oman’s 29-year-old left-arm fast bowler Bilal Khan was in sparkling form when he finished with figures of 7.1-2-19-5 as Singapore was sent packing for 100 in 37.1 overs after losing its last seven wickets for 17 runs. Oman, in its turn at the wicket, lost both the openers inside two overs but Ajay Lalcheta (37) and Sultan Ahmed (32) put their side back on track by putting on 63 runs for the third wicket. In the end, Aqib Ilyas made victory easy by clubbing five fours in a 15-ball 22 not out.Oman captain, Sultan Ahmad said: “It was a good toss to win. We bowled first, when we got here. I was really pleased that we could restrict them to a 100.”Syed Aziz Mubarak from Malaysia feels the pinch as another chance goes down begging. PHOTO ICC CRICKET.COMUganda’s Mohammad Irfan was in a punishing mood at the Lugogo Cricket Club, Kampala, when he clobbered seven fours and 10 sixes in a 71-ball 108 not out as his side achieved the 190-run target with four wickets and 13.4 overs to spare.Irfan had walked onto the crease with his side reeling at 32 for three in 15.2 overs and immediately took the charge by taking the attack to the bowlers and single-handedly steering his side home. His domination of the Malaysia bowling can be judged from the fact that when he took the guard, his side needed 151 runs and when he returned unbeaten, he had scored 108 out of those runs.Earlier, Malaysia’s 189 in 50 overs revolved around Shafiq Sharif (58) and Virandeep Singh (39), while bowling honours went to Frank Nsubuga (four for 43) and Henry Ssenyondo (three for 30).Malaysian captain, Faiz Ahmed said: “This game was crucial for us. I am happy with the batting, to score 189 runs and our bowlers did well for the first 20 overs. But because of the fielding, we gave the game away. Afridi scored a good innings of 108 runs, congratulations to them.”Uganda’s Davis Karashani said: “As I always said, we have to take it one game at a time. Today we came out knowing we needed to win big and we did it thanks to a big performance from Afridi Lala.“He showed he wanted to win it for us. He always desired to bat high up the order and which we have allowed him to do today and throughout the tournament. For him to play this well in such a big game is tremendous.”The top two sides from this competition will be promoted to ICC World Cricket League Division 2. From Division 2, the top two sides will join four sides from the ICC World Cricket League Championship and the bottom four ranked sides from the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018. The top two sides from the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier will progress to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, to be staged in the United Kingdom from 30 May to 15 July.Scores in briefCanada beat USA by 96 runs at Kyambogo Cricket Oval, KampalaCanada 256-8, 50 overs (Dhanuka Pathirana 87, Bhavindu Adhihetty 67, Nikhil Dutta 31 not out; Mrunal Patel 3-35)USA 160 all out, 43 overs (Ibrahim Khaleel 37, Elmore Hutchinson 29; Rizwan Cheema 3-31, Saad bin Zafar 2-29, Satsimranjit Dhindsa 2-19)last_img read more

PHOTO @arsenal Arsenal 3 (Ozil 45, Aubameyang 63, 66) Leicester 1 (Bellerin 31-og)Aubameyang, Ozil star as Arsenal make it perfect 10London, United Kingdom | AFP | Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mesut Ozil stole the show as Arsenal swept to their 10th successive win with a dominant 3-1 victory against Leicester on Monday.Unai Emery’s side trailed to Hector Bellerin’s first half own goal at the Emirates Stadium.But Ozil, captaining Arsenal on his return to the side after back spasms, produced a majestic display to lead the Gunners’ impressive fightback.Ozil, shrugging off his poor start to the season, equalised just before half-time and played a key role in Aubameyang’s second half double.Gabon striker Aubameyang scored twice in quick succession after coming off the bench, ensuring Arsenal won 10 consecutive matches in all competitions for the first time since 2007.They have scored 30 goals in that blistering streak and climb to fourth place in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Manchester City.On the 69th birthday of Emery’s predecessor Arsene Wenger, this was the kind of swashbuckling show that recalled Arsenal’s glory days under the Frenchman.It was the perfect start to a hectic week that sees Arsenal travel to Portugal for a Europa League tie against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday before returning to domestic action at Crystal Palace on Sunday.Emery has made a remarkable impact since replacing Wenger in the close-season.The Spanish manager’s two-game losing streak at the start of his Arsenal reign is now a distant memory as Gunners fans start to dream of a title challenge after their seventh successive league win.Initially, Arsenal struggled to get up to speed and Kelechi Iheanacho made a break behind Stephane Lichtsteiner, leaving him trailing in his wake as he cut into the area for a shot that was deflected over by Rob Holding.Iheanacho threatened again moments later, taking possession on the edge of the area before unleashing a curling effort that Bernd Leno pushed away.– Driving forward –Leicester had a strong claim for a spot-kick when Holding raised his arm above his head and clearly handled as he jumped to meet Jamie Vardy’s flick on, yet referee Christopher Kavanagh waved play on. Harry Maguire’s towering header forced a good save from Leno and Leicester’s pressure reaped a tangible reward in the 31st minute.Wilfried Ndidi’s pass picked out Ben Chilwell, who made a superb run in behind Bellerin and drilled a low shot that deflected off the Arsenal defender on its way past the wrong-footed Leno.Stunned into action by that setback, Arsenal nearly snatched an immediate equaliser when Granit Xhaka’s free-kick was tipped over by Kasper Schmeichel.Suddenly, Arsenal were driving forward with purpose and they drew level on the stroke of half-time.Ozil was the catalyst as his pass sent Bellerin away down the right and when the defender crossed into the Leicester area, it was the German midfielder who timed his run perfectly to guide a delicate finish into the far corner.Ndidi led the Leicester response with a powerful header that rattled the bar from James Maddison’s corner.But Emery sent on Aubameyang for Lichtsteiner after 61 minutes and it the match-winning switch paid instant dividends two minutes later. Ozil played a superb pass to Bellerin and the Spaniard’s low cross was just right for the unmarked Aubameyang to slot home from close-range.Aubameyang was in the right place at the right time again in the 66th minute as Arsenal conjured up another incisive raid.This was Arsenal at their finest as Ozil and Lacazette combined to carve open the Leicester defence in a blur of flicks and tricks, presenting Aubameyang with a simple chance to tap in his eighth goal of the season.Rounding off a depressing evening for Leicester, Vardy was forced off, leaving the visitors, who had already made all their substitutions, down to 10 men for the final minutes.center_img Tough week starts with winIt was the first win at the start of a week that  Emery still admits Arsenal will struggle to cope with a draining schedule.The Gunners next  travel to Portugal for a Europa League tie against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday before returning to domestic action at Crystal Palace on Sunday.In contrast, Sporting were due to face Loures on Saturday night, giving them more time to recover before hosting Arsenal.Emery has fielded a strong side in Arsenal’s previous Europa League matches, but he will be forced to rotate more heavily this time.“We are one team with a very high level and very high demand for us,” he said.“Every player, they need to feel they can play every match. With only three days difference between one match and another, you can’t do that.“You can’t do that with play and rest, play and we can’t do that without changing players. But if I decide to play with the same players Monday, Thursday, Sunday, the players can’t do that.“We want to play a lot of matches. We want to continue doing our way with different possibilities tactically and with the players – but with a lot of matches, we can’t do that.”Arsenal are on a ten-match winning streak in all competitions, but their chances of extending that run past the coming week will be severely tested.– ‘Not an excuse’ –“The TV has the target to choose the matches Friday, Sunday, Monday. If they decided we are going to play Monday we don’t stop to think if it is better to play Monday or not,” Emery said.“I prefer to play Saturday or Sunday. It (playing on Monday) has the advantage for more time to prepare the match – that’s one positive.“After, we are going to play Thursday, we are going to play Sunday also, two matches very quickly after Leicester. For me it’s not an excuse because we are preparing for Monday.”Meanwhile, Leicester manager Claude Puel earlier said he always knew Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette would come good.Lacazette endured a difficult first season with Arsenal, but has five goals in 10 games this term.Puel, who gave Lacazette his senior debut in 2010 when they were together at Lyon, said: “He is a complete player with good transition with the ball and without the ball. He is always available for the team.“He works all the time and he has kept his clinical edge and I am not surprised about his quality and his good work with Arsenal.“He started with me. His first game at the beginning he was always a striker but to find a place and get game time in the team he started as a winger.“He had always the same quality and was clinical in the box.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more


first_imgJOCKEY QUOTES     MIKE SMITH MIRTH, WINNER: (On riding Mirth for the first time): “I’ve watched her, and she’s been running dynamite. It looked like she wasn’t far from pulling one of these off, so I knew it was in her. It was just a matter of whether I could get a little brave and start marching a little early. She doesn’t really have a turn of foot; she just seems to keep staying and keep going. I felt like I had gotten away with that at the half-mile pole, so going into the turn I started marching on where I was going to lengthen everybody’s kick instead of trying to make an explosive move. It worked today. It might not work next time, but it worked today.”TRAINER QUOTES   PHIL D’AMATO, MIRTH, WINNER: “She was kind of a late entry into the race. We were the lone speed and Mike (Smith) just kind of doled it out the right way and had plenty left.”   BILLY KOCH, LITTLE RED FEATHER RACING: “When she turned for home she kept going at the same pace and I didn’t see anybody coming . . . It was really great.”               NOTES: The winning owner is Little Red Feather Racing.last_img read more

Hansen: Rules should be simpler

first_imgAfter Owen Farrell had levelled the score at 15-15 with a 78th-minute penalty, the All Blacks looked set to be given a chance to claim victory when referee Poite awarded a penalty to the hosts from the restart.However, after consulting the television match official and his touch judges, Poite ultimately decided that Lions hooker Ken Owens was accidentally offside when collecting a knock-on from full-back Liam Williams, meaning New Zealand were only granted a scrum rather than the opportunity to kick at goal.”It’s a tough game to ref. We all know what happened and what should have happened,” said Hansen in his post-match news conference.”But as little kids you are told to take the good with the bad. We are accepting over decisions that are made. It is a decision the ref has made and we will live with it.”Hansen added: “They used the video and had a pow-wow. The ref’s initial instincts were that it was a penalty, then he spoke to his team of three and one suggested it was accidental. It is what is.”There’s too many avenues that you can go down, but that’s not the ref’s fault, that’s the rulebook. People that are running the game need to ask themselves do we need to make it simpler. My answer to that would be yes. Tomorrow would be great.”In an apparent reference to New Zealand spurning several excellent opportunities to add to Ngani Laumape and Jordie Barrett’s first-half scores, Hansen said: “If we had scored another try ourselves it wouldn’t have been such a problem. We can’t control the refs.”On the drawn series, he added: “We’ve ended up with a hand on the trophy each, which is a little bit like kissing your sister. There’s not a lot in it for anybody.”last_img read more

Disappointed with re-election of Mayor

first_imgDear Editor,Over the last three years, as a resident of Georgetown and a business owner, I have always wondered why the City budget is always a top-secret document just like the infamous parking meter contract.There are never proper discussions with residents and relevant interest groups, but merely a sham consultation and instead of properly publicising the estimates of income and expenditure, as they are required to do by law, there is only a vague, pie in the sky, long-winded budget speech by the Finance Chairman each year.This year, just like the two previous years, the draft 2018 budget was surreptitiously rushed through, and passed in the Extraordinary Statutory Meeting of the Council on Wednesday March 7, 2018, and now I am beginning to understand why.It is clear that the City Council does not want the citizens to realise through the details contained in budget, the level of contempt they have for them as this budget contains no creative solutions for improving the quality of life of the residents but rather focuses on the re-elected Mayor, some of the Councillors and the administration thoroughly enjoying themselves by spending lavishly on itself, partying, travelling, and having a good time.How could they explain allocating $20 million for city anniversary celebrations, $5 million for a Christmas party, tons of money for overseas travel, billions on salaries and wages, new vehicles, etc. Comparatively, very small amounts have been set aside for the rehabilitation of City Hall, for the maintenance of roads, for street lighting, etc.In such circumstances that prevail at City Hall, it is disappointing but not surprising that the Mayor was re-elected for a third term. Are we to understand by that that she is the best of the lot of city fathers and mothers? Are we to understand that her dismal record for the last two terms does not matter, only what instructions were given by the party’s hierarchy? So what can we look out for in the next nine months? Lots more travel and another scam like the parking meters?Sincerely,Magagula Jacksonlast_img read more

Hurricanes, bombings among biggest stories in a year of disasters

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The story of 2005 was told in the faces of human suffering – people touched by tragedy at the hands of nature’s vicious winds and waters, or by the design of terrorists who set their sights on soldiers, hotels and simple morning commutes. You can mark the days and months of the year by tracing the grief and loss and horror that reached across the world, from faroff Pakistan to Sudan, in the capitals of Amman and London, in remote tornado-ravaged towns in Indiana. And New Orleans. Indelibly, the suffering that 2005 brought to so many places was captured by the American catastrophe – first natural, then humanitarian – that devastated Louisiana and Mississippi over one wrenching late-summer week, and for years to come. Beneath it all was the steady drip, drip, drip of U.S. military deaths in Iraq, leaving behind grieving families and a nation increasingly souring on the war. The conflict marked its 1,000th day this year, and its 2,000th fallen soldier. There were moments when the suffering was reverent: In April, Archibishop Stanislaw Dziwisz wept as he placed a white silk veil over the face of Pope John Paul II just before his coffin was closed, the world mourning with him as it bid farewell to a man known as the first rock-star pontiff. And there were moments when it was highly disputed: We watched grainy video showing the face of a brain-damaged Florida woman named Terri Schiavo, her eyes perhaps following a balloon, or gazing back at her mother. Deprived of a feeding tube, was she dying as her husband insists she asked? Or should she have been kept alive, as her parents demanded? Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey was slain in Iraq, staged an epic summer protest at President Bush’s Texas ranch, galvanizing the nation’s antiwar movement. Was she an anguished mother demanding answers? Or a publicity hound and lackey of the left exploiting her own child? At times the suffering seemed inescapable, even like some cruel joke of fate. On July 6, cheers broke out on the London Underground subway as news spread that London had been awarded the 2012 Olympic Games. “Many people do reckon that London is the greatest city in the whole world at the moment,” said Prime Minister Tony Blair. Not 24 hours later, those same subway cars were filled with smoke and blood and panic. During the morning rush hour, terrorists killed 52 commuters and injured more than 700 in the worst attack on London since World War II. One particularly jarring picture taken that day showed a man embracing a dazed subway passenger and leading her away from the Edgware Road station. Her face was wrapped entirely in white gauze, her hands pressed to her cheeks, a ghostly image of shock. But nothing – not the somber, yearlong cleanup from the Asian tsunami, not the devastating earthquake in Pakistan – captured the nation’s attention, and evoked national horror and disbelief, like Hurricane Katrina. The monster barreled toward New Orleans over a late August weekend, seemingly the storm the bowl-shaped, depressed Big Easy had always feared. Then it jogged to the east, devastating the Mississippi coast. New Orleans, it was said, had dodged a bullet. But then the levees broke, and the water rose, and the country watched for a week as a great American city descended into a ruinous scene of looting, shooting, fires and bloated corpses floating in the reeking, toxic muck left behind by the storm. New Orleanians who had opted to ride out the storm – or simply did not have the means to get out of town – desperately sought deliverance from the infamous convention center, or the teeming Superdome. Or their own rooftops. Bush – dogged by his remark to Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Michael Brown that “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job” – made trip after trip to the Gulf Coast, and pledged in the French Quarter: “There is no way to imagine America without New Orleans, and this great city will rise again.” Still, at year’s end, the victims of Katrina remained scattered in cities across the nation, unsure when they could return to their homes – or whether even they wanted to. The death toll stood at more than 1,300. And the hurricanes kept coming. Rita followed four weeks later – at one point it had menacing winds gusting to 185 mph – and tore through east Texas and west Louisiana. Then Wilma slashed through Florida, leaving 6 million people without electricity. And then, in a first, they ran out of names. Five new late-season storms were assigned Greek letters, all the way up to Epsilon, which formed in early December, mocking the official end of hurricane season Nov. 30. The war in Iraq raged for a third year, and the war against terrorism entered its fifth, and the nation pondered the meaning of torture and when, if ever, it was appropriate. It seems ages ago, but a year so defined by tragedy actually began with a bold challenge to end suffering and oppression: President Bush was inaugurated for a second term Jan. 20, and from the Capitol he issued a call for freedom in every nation with the ultimate goal of “ending tyranny in our world.” But then he watched as his administration suffered an interstate pileup of setbacks: The war. The response to Katrina. Soaring gas prices, past $3 per gallon in some places. A stalled effort to revamp Social Security. The Harriet Miers Supreme Court nomination. In October, Lewis “Scooter” Libby, top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, was indicted on charges of lying to a grand jury investigating the outing of a CIA officer. The year ended with the investigation still open, and clouds of uncertainty still surrounding Karl Rove, the president’s top adviser. In the courts, there were trials: Michael Jackson walked out of a California courtroom one June afternoon and returned to his Neverland ranch after being found not guilty on child-molestation charges. His lawyer proclaimed “Justice is done” – but said the pop star would no longer sleep with children in his bedroom. Saddam Hussein, brandishing a team of lawyers rather than a rifle, went on trial in Iraq for mass murder and torture, lashing out in theatrical rants about “American rules” and shouting for the five judges to “Go to hell!” Important as they were, these stories sometimes seemed no more than sideshows, distractions from the march of catastrophes that plagued the world this year. At times they seemed so frequent and massive that we were almost numb to their numbers. Millions went without food in Niger, and epic violence raged in Sudan. An earthquake in Pakistan killed a staggering 87,000. The somber count of victims of the late 2004 tsunami continued all year, the death toll eventually climbing to an incomprehensible 176,000. It was an extreme, gut-churning example of the suffering felt all over the world this tumultuous year.last_img read more


first_imgDemand to learn Chinese in Donegal has officially surpassed all expectations.No less than three levels of evening classes are now being offered at Letterkenny Institute of Technology in Mandarin Chinese.Since LYIT first introduced Level One Mandarin Chinese evening classes last year, interest in the subject has been unprecedented with more than 100 pupils enrolled to learn the language. Under the directorship of teacher, Jill Murphy, almost one hundred people have become involved with Mandarin Chinese at LYIT, either through evening classes or the one week intensive programmes.The first round of Mandarin Chinese evening classes for 2013 will begin on January 24 and will cater for both Level One Beginners and Level Three. Level Two will resume later in the year and intensive weeks will run at Easter and during the Summer.There are 10 classes in each of the Level One Beginners and Level Three classes and they will be held on Thursday evenings at LYIT. Level One Class time is 5pm to 7pm (with a 15 minute break).This year, Level One will be taught by Catherine Devine. Catherine explained: “Level One is perfect for anyone who has an interest in learning Mandarin Chinese in a fun way. You will learn basic Mandarin conversation so you will be able to introduce yourself and your family, ask questions and hold a basic conversation. You will also learn some other basics and how to say and write the numbers 1 – 10.”The classes are kept small to ensure a quality lesson. The cost of the course is €150 for non-students at LYIT and €125 for students for the 10 weeks. This also includes the course text book and CD.Level Three will be taught by Jill Murphy and the first of ten evening classes will also beginon January 24 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. Level Three classes are suitable for those who have already completed levels one and two.The past year has also seen the hosting of Letterkenny’s first ever Chinese Social evening. It took place in Hee’s Chinese Restaurant and saw more than 60 people with a shared interest in Chinese getting together for an evening of language, culture and food.Plans for the next Chinese Social Evening are already well underway and it will be heldon February 1 to mark the Chinese New Year. Jill explained: “The first social evening was such a success and we wanted to continue to have an outlet where anyone with an interest in Chinese, as well as the local Chinese community, could get together outside a classroom setting. Of course, the Chinese New Year is the perfect opportunity for a celebration and we are hoping to have another great informal evening of Chinese food, conversation and culture.”Anyone who wishes to sign up for evening classes can e-mail [email protected] facebook page providing information of Chinese events, trips and classes can be joined at www.facebook.com/letterkenny.chineseCHINESE HAS DONEGAL FOLK SPEAKING IN TONGUES! was last modified: January 15th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Chinese MandarinlanguageLYITlast_img read more

Man threatened to throw Gardaí off bridge

first_imgCOURTS: A man threatened to throw Gardaí off a bridge and caused damage to a Donegal bar during a drunken rage.Paul Martin, 28, with an address at 72 Forge Avenue, Ballintra appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday morning charged with public order offences and criminal damage. On the 7th May, of this year, the defendant was ejected from The Cavern Bar just before 1am for being in an intoxicated state.However, Mr Martin kicked at the front door of The Cavern Bar and caused €100 worth of damage.Management contacted Gardaí, the defendant attended the station the next morning and made a statement in relation to the incident.On May 22nd of this year, Gardaí were alerted to a disturbance at 4.45 am at Long Lane, Letterkenny.The court heard how Gardaí found a male lying intoxicated in the front garden outside a home in Long Lane.The male was Paul Martin, and he was barely able to stand, he wasn’t very forthcoming with Gardaí and was acting confrontational.He then told Gardaí that he would throw them round the place and throw them off the bridge, he was subsequently arrested after failing to co-operate with Gardaí.The defendant had 44 previous convictions with offences ranging from sale and supply of drugs, criminal damage, theft and a disqualification from driving for eight years.Solicitor for the defendant said his client had a serious issue with alcohol, but had taken steps to rectify the issue and has found employment as a chef.Mr Gallagher said, “He was in a long-term relationship, and is a father-of-two – he accepts and admits he has a serious issue with alcohol.“His life fell apart around him at the time of these incidents, but he’s back on track now, he’s in contact with his sponsor and attends daily AA meetings.“All his previous offences were alcohol related, but he was co-operative with Gardaí in relation to these incidents and as I said has his life back on track.“He is now sober and is working as a chef in a hotel, and he is also finishing off the final year of a catering course in Killybegs which is run in conjunction with LYIT.”Judge Paul Kelly requested a probation report and a community service report on the defendant – and adjourned the case until November 17th.Man threatened to throw Gardaí off bridge was last modified: July 22nd, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Gowalla Offers Trips & Travel Guides with USA TODAY

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Tags:#Location#mobile#web The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Location-based service Gowalla announced this week that it has struck up a partnership with national newspaper USA TODAY to offer special content for the summer travel season. According to Gowalla community manager Jonathon Carroll’s blog post on the partnership, the deal will offer Gowalla users select content when they check in to more than 40 of the busiest airports in the country. What happens is this – when you check in at one of these airports, the app will ask if you want to follow USA TODAY on Gowalla. If you do, you’ll get a “Jet Setter” pin for your Gowalla passport and access to airline and air travel news, trips (which consist of a number of recommended check-in locations to visit in the city you’re checked in to), and airport guides, which “let travelers know the cheapest place to park, the quickest way to get through security, the best options for dining and shopping, real-time flight information and more.” Once you’ve followed the USA TODAY account on Gowalla, any subsequent check-in at a selected airport will allow you to access this content. The partnership does something we don’t think we’ve seen much of before in the LBS sphere – it offers content that directly relates to the activity and reason for checking in to the location you’re checking in to. You’re at an airport, so you must be traveling and you obviously would be interested in information such as flight times or a guide for the airport you’re at. It’s precisely the type of catering of information that Robert Scoble argued for when he discussed the failures of LBS apps like Gowalla, Foursquare and others. Rather than simply offering users restaurant reviews from a local paper every time they check in somewhere, this new deal takes into account where the user is checking in and offers content based on that. While it is currently limited to a select number of airports across the country, we think it is an important step in the right direction. As Scoble argued, though, the real next step is for applications like Gowalla to recognize that when you check in to a car wash, the coffee shop two blocks away and the nearest public bathrooms should be suggested, not the lamp store across the street. mike melansoncenter_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaceslast_img read more

The sorry tale of Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar and nine finals

first_imgIndia’s ninth straight defeat in one-day international finals has set off lamentations of “why us”and “not again”. Perhaps it was unreasonable to expect the streak to end at eight losing finals.On that day, the Indians were not good enough to beat the South Africans as they won’t be on any,India’s ninth straight defeat in one-day international finals has set off lamentations of “why us”and “not again”. Perhaps it was unreasonable to expect the streak to end at eight losing finals.On that day, the Indians were not good enough to beat the South Africans as they won’t be on any eight days out of 10.The reason there was optimism at all was because the two fire starters – Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar – had scored blazing hundreds in the league match against Kenya, and broken many records on the way.A more measured study of their performance in the finals would have warned against too much celebration because neither Ganguly nor Tendulkar have really fired in recent finals.Tendulkar has played only five of the nine finals, scored one 50, two ducks and averages 18. Ganguly, does better, averaging 30 in the nine finals. But he has crossed double figures only once in the past four finals. In truth only one statistic really matters: the team’s win percentage in big games. It’s not looking good and the big boys know why. THE SORRY TALE OF TWO TITANS AND NINE FINALS Season  Venue  Championship  Lost to Tendulkar  Ganguly  1998-99 India  Pepsi Cup Pakistan  DNP 13 1998-99 Sharjah Coca-Cola Cup Pakistan   DNP  50 1999-00 Singapore Singapore Challenge West Indies 046 1999-00 Nairobi LG Cup South Africa DNP  10 2000-01 Nairobi ICC Knock-out New Zealand 69 117 2000-01 Sharjah Champions Trophy Sri Lanka 5 3 2001-02 Zimbabwe Coca-Cola Trophy West Indies 0 28 2001-02 Sri Lanka Coca-Cola Trophy Sri Lanka DNP1 2001-02 South Africa Summer Spice Trophy South Africa 17  9advertisementlast_img read more

England players’ desire must not be questioned, says Ben Stokes

first_imgEngland players deserve criticism for poor performances but questioning the team’s desire is uncalled for, vice-captain Ben Stokes has said ahead of the third of the four-test series against South Africa at The Oval on Thursday.Former players and pundits criticised the Lions after a weak batting display in the final innings of the second test at Trent Bridge saw the team get bowled out for 133 and lose the match by a massive 340 runs.All-rounder Stokes, who scored 18 runs and collected four wickets as South Africa levelled the series at 1-1, said the backlash was fair but some critics took it too far.”For anyone to question our fight or desire I think is wrong. They should know how much it means to play for England – how much to wear the Three Lions on your chest,” Stokes told reporters.”We have to take criticism on performances which we are understanding of, but (questioning our) desire is too much.”The last time these two sides played a test at the Oval was in July 2012, when South Africa came out on top by an innings and 12 runs.last_img read more

Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman pleads guilty in college admissions scandal

first_imgDesperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty Monday in the college admissions bribery scheme, the biggest name to do so in a scandal that has underscored the lengths to which some wealthy parents will go to get their children into top universities.The Emmy-winning actress, 56, could face prison time after she admitted to participating in the nationwide scam, in which authorities say parents bribed coaches, rigged entrance exams or both to game the admissions system.Huffman pleaded guilty in federal court to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter’s answers on the SAT. She also considered going through with the plan for her younger daughter before ultimately deciding not to, authorities say.Felicity Huffman has arrived at court in Boston and is expected to plead guilty to paying $15,000 to have a proctor boost her daughter’s SAT scores. It is part of one of the largest college admissions scandals. pic.twitter.com/37jdyJV45f— CBS 13 News (@WGME) May 13, 2019The consultant, Rick Singer, arranged for the cheating by having students obtain permission for extra time on the exams through diagnoses for things like learning disabilities, and then taking the exams at his testing center, prosecutors say.In court, Huffman explained her daughter had been seeing a neuropsychologist for years and been getting extra time on tests since she was 11 an apparent attempt to explain that her daughter’s doctor had no part in the scheme.I just didn’t want to create the impression that neuropsychologists have any part in this, a tearful Huffman said before stopping to collect herself.advertisementSentencing was set for Sept. 13. Because she agreed to plead guilty, prosecutors said they would recommend four months in prison, but the judge could choose not to put her behind bars at all.She arrived at court holding the hand of her brother Moore Huffman Jr. and did not say anything to journalists. In court, she wore a gray dress and a sweater and sat flanked by her attorneys while her brother watched from the front row. Her husband, actor William H. Macy, didn’t attend.Huffman had apologized in a statement last month and said she will accept the consequences. She said she betrayed her 18-year-old daughter, who was not aware of her plan.This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty, Huffman said.Investigators have said Macy, 69, was with her when admissions consultant Rick Singer explained how he could arrange for the cheating because he controlled a test center. Both Huffman and Macy agreed to the plan, authorities say, but Macy has not been charged. Prosecutors have not explained why.California businessman Devin Sloane also pleaded guilty Monday to paying $250,000 in bribes to get his son into the University of Southern California as a fake water polo recruit. Officials say he bought athletic gear and worked with a designer to create a bogus photo of his son playing the sport for the application.Huffman and Sloane are among 14 parents who agreed to plead guilty in the biggest admissions scandal ever prosecuted in the U.S., known as Operation Varsity Blues. The scandal involves prestigious schools across the country and has also embroiled prominent college coaches.The parents are accused of paying Singer to bribe coaches in exchange for helping their children get into schools as fake athletic recruits. Singer also paid off entrance exam administrators to allow someone else to take tests for students or fix their answers, authorities say.Some parents and coaches who have agreed to plead guilty are cooperating with prosecutors against current or future co-defendants, but Huffman is not known to be among them.Singer has pleaded guilty to charges including racketeering conspiracy. He began working with authorities last year and secretly recorded his conversations with actress Lori Loughlin, Huffman and other parents in the hopes of getting a lenient sentence.Some parents have decided to fight the charges, including Full House star Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, who have pleaded not guilty to paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters into the University of Southern California as crew recruits, even though neither is a rower.Loughlin and Giannulli, who are also charged with money laundering conspiracy, have not publicly commented.Huffman was a star of ABC’s Desperate Housewives, which won her an Emmy Award in 2005. She was nominated for an Oscar for playing a transgender woman in the movie Transamerica.advertisementExperts differ on whether Huffman’s swift acceptance of responsibility will leave her with an acting career.After she agreed to plead guilty, Netflix officials said that a film starring her, Otherhood, would not be released as planned in April and that a new date would be determined. A limited series featuring Huffman on the Central Park Five case is expected to debut this month.last_img read more

With the horrors of Hurricane Harvey still on many American minds, it’s up to The Manual to impress upon the people of this country that there’s more to this city than disaster; Houston is back and better than ever. From finger-licking, no-frills barbecue at Killen’s to the upscale and refined Manready Mercantile (winner of best local brand), Houston’s laid-back and welcoming atmosphere, combined with all the options of a world-class city, make it a true standout in the American South.Read more…Pittsburgh, PennsylvaniaYou might not expect it from a reportedly decrepit, Rust Belt city, but Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a pretty happening place. Writer Amanda Gabriele attests to that with her choices for the best of the best of the Steel City. When the greatest watering hole in town is a Tiki bar, and the best local brand is a bow tie manufacturer, critics of Pittsburgh will turn head and realize that this vibrant, 21st-century city will not square with their outdated vision of it from the 20th. From craft brewing, Italian eateries, and SUPing on the city’s three rivers, Pittsburgh has more than enough for a relaxing weekend away. Pay a visit this summer and prepare to be impressed.Read more…Louisville, KentuckyThere’s more to Louisville than just horse-racing and bourbon. But, if we’re being honest (and Food and Drink Editor Sam Slaughter always is), these are reason enough on their own to visit Louisville. However, Slaughter encourages you to break out of the horse-racing and whiskey-drinking carousel and head further afield for a bit more culture and nuance. Check out Louisville’s best barbershop (aptly named Beards and Beers) and catch a straight-razor shave followed by a spin down the Ohio River on the Belle of Louisville boat tour. But whatever you do, don’t leave the city without checking out Bourbon Barrel Foods and the terrifyingly-named, but ultimately excellent Apocalypse Brew Works. See, we told you there was more than bourbon in Louisville–there’s beer, too!Read more…Boston, MassachusettsAs travel writer Mike Richard notes in his picks for the best of Beantown, Boston is more American than any other city in the country (yes, even you, Philadelphia). Because of its patriotic reputation, it may come as a surprise to some that the city’s best restaurant is a Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant called Ruka, but Bostonians will tell you this sort of cultural blending and fusion occurs everywhere in this almost 400-year-old city. Don’t believe us? The best barbershop in the city, Boston Barber and Tattoo Co., will not only will give you a cut and shave, it’ll give you some fresh ink too. Now that’s what we call ‘doing double-duty.’Read more…Minneapolis, MinnesotaLocated squarely in Minnesota’s Land of 10,000 Lakes, Minneapolis is, according to Sam Slaughter, a can’t-miss American travel destination for 2018. With best local brands like Red Wing Shoes, great restaurants that offer up “amusements” with each course, and a barbershop whose mascot is a pit bull called Bertha Mae, Minneapolis stands head and shoulders above its twin city across the river. And thanks to its vibrant, unique, and ever-expanding culture and economy, it looks like it will stay that way for the foreseeable future. So head to the city at the head of the Mississippi this summer and spend some time in the Upper-Midwest’s mecca of cool.Read more…Athens, GeorgiaEditor-in-Chief Cator Sparks wants you to know that Athens, Georgia, is more than just a Southern college town. The city has come a long way since its days as an alternative music mecca, with new restaurants, shops, and bars popping up every year. Make a reservation at one of chef Hugh Acheson’s restaurants and you won’t be disappointed. Follow that up with a trip to Local Bar, where you can wet your whistle while waiting on a delivery from Atomic Pizza next door. After your midnight snack, hit the hay, because you’ve got a long day of hiking the gorgeous Oconee Forest Park ahead of you. Athens is a place for relaxation, rest, and maybe a little light reading — if only to please its namesake.Read more…Milwaukee, WisconsinAccording to Associate Editor Chase McPeak, there’s more to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, than just beer, cheese, and funny accents. Okay, most of the appeal is in the beer, cheese (our fave shop is a cheese market!), and funny accents, but seriously, there’s so much more. With a heaping helping of excellent restaurants, gourmet coffee shops, surprisingly-well curated museums (including Harley-Davidson’s), and a prime locale directly on Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is a true Midwestern sleeper hit. What makes it even better? Tons of yearly festivals and a little something called STIHL Timbersports Lumberjack Competition. What else can you expect from a city at the edge of the Great Northern Woods. Timber!Read more…Copy by Chase McPeaklast_img read more

New World Record for Underwater Clean-Up Set in Abu …

first_imgzoom In a resounding sustainability achievement, ADMA-OPCO in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Port Company have set a new world record for the most participants in an underwater clean-up (Single Venue) as part of the “Dive Together To Protect Our Marine Environment” Campaign organized on April 23rd.Collecting around 9 tonnes of waste, a world breaking number of 300 divers using diving support vessels (DSV) with full diving equipped plus dive boats participated in the clean-up that covered Abu Dhabi’s Free Port. The clean-up aimed to raise awareness of the negative impact of underwater debris.Marking the achievement, ADMA-OPCO hosted a ceremony at its HQ on April 24 that grouped together representatives of the Guinness World Records, and Senior Management teams of ADMA-OPCO and ADPC along with a number of the two companies’ employees.“A big thank you goes out to all our volunteers and partners for all their support and concerns regarding our environment and for backing up and making “Dive Together” Campaign a big success,” ADMA-OPCO Chief Executive officer Mr. Ali R. Al-Jarwan said at the ceremony.“The campaign fits within the context of our Corporate Social Responsibility commitments and sustained endeavors for the protection of the environment in general and the marine ecology in particular. Sustainability is everyone’s responsibility. And we, at ADMA-OPCO, under the umbrella of ADNOC lay special focus on conservation of the marine environment where we carry out our daily operations.”Capt. Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO, ADPC, said “This is a fantastic achievement our heartfelt thanks go to all the volunteer divers for their hard work. We thank them for giving up their time and for taking part with such enthusiasm.“We collected an enormous amount of rubbish which will make a big difference to the marine species in our waters. The sea is a source of livelihood for many of us – from the fishermen in the Dhow Harbor to all of the businesses and organizations providing services for the increasing number of cruise ships visiting Abu Dhabi –as a result, protecting the marine environment is a top priority for everyone.”An exhibition was set- up alongside the campaign to showcase the success story of the previous campaign and included marine and environment protection presentations, and a photo gallery.As part of the event, ADNOC Crisis Management Team demonstrated a real-life scenario regarding what actions should be taken in case of an oil spill.Representatives from high-profile organizations participated in the campaign, including ADGAS, Mubadala Petroleum, Tadweer, Abu Dhabi Police, Abu Dhabi City Municipality, and the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi (EAD) along with ecologists, environmental activists and fishermen.ADPC, April 29, 2014last_img read more

Genco Widens Full Year Loss

first_imgzoom US-based dry bulk specialist Genco Shipping and Trading widened its 2016 net loss to USD 217.2 million from a net loss of USD 194.9 million reported a year earlier.Revenues for the full year dropped to USD 135.6 million from USD 154 million reported for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015 due to lower spot market rates achieved by the majority of the company’s vessels.Average daily time charter equivalent (TCE) rates decreased to USD 4,907 per day in 2016, compared to USD 5,445 per day seen in 2015.However, Genco managed to cut its quarterly losses as it posted a net loss of USD 24.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, less then USD 49.5 million of net loss seen in the same period in 2015.The company’s fourth quarter revenues increased to USD 43.9 million from USD 35 million reported for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The increase was primarily due to higher spot market rates achieved by the majority of the vessels during the period.TCE rates were at USD 6,659 per day for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 as compared to USD 4,711 earned in the same period a year earlier.“During the fourth quarter and full-year 2016, Genco took important steps to further strengthen its leading drybulk platform and reposition the company to capitalize on a market recovery,” John C. Wobensmith, President, said.Namely, the company completed a USD 125 million capital raise and closed on a USD 400 million credit facility, which “transformed our balance sheet and capital structure.”Additionally, Genco continued to optimize the deployment, strategic positioning and profile of its diversified fleet.“We enter 2017 in a strong position to utilize our modern fleet to serve leading charterers, while drawing upon our significant financial flexibility to take advantage of compelling growth opportunities,” Wobensmith said.last_img read more

Yamuna water recedes in Delhi its close to danger mark in Mathura

first_imgNEW DELHI: The water level in the Yamuna river continued to recede and was flowing below the ‘warning mark’ of 204.50 metres, an official said on Friday. Meanwhile, the water level in the Yamuna is inching towards the danger mark in Mathura, an official said on Friday. The Delhi government is monitoring the situation, the official said. According to the Flood Control Room, Yamuna was flowing at 204.28 metres at 1 pm on Friday.”The water level of Yamuna is expected to further recede as Haryana has not released water from Hathni Kund barrage in large quantity,” the official said. On Thursday, the river flowed below the “danger mark” of 205.33 metres.

The river started receding from Wednesday afternoon and the water level was at 206.44 metres at 6 pm. Meanwhile, the situation is opposite in Mathura. “The Yamuna has crossed the warning level and it is moving towards the danger mark,”ADM Brajesh Kumar said. He said no casualty had been reported so far. After the discharge of 8.28 cusecs of water from the Tajjewala headworks on August 18 followed by the release of water from the Hathni Kund barrage in Haryana, the impact in Mathura was visible on Thursday, he said.

Ontario inquest bears echo of residential school tragedy First Nation leader

first_imgThe Canadian PressOTTAWA – An Ontario inquest into the deaths of seven First Nations high school students is raising difficult questions and themes sure to be echoed by a forthcoming inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women, Aboriginal leaders say. The inquiry, which resumes Monday in Thunder Bay, is exploring how the deaths were investigated and the level of communication between officials and families, Nishnawbe Aski Nation Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler said in an interview. Nishnawbe Aski is one of the parties with standing at the inquest. “I think there are a couple of themes that have emerged from this inquest that we see a strong parallel with the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls,” Fiddler said. “One is the racism that these students experienced here in Thunder Bay and the lack of proper attention by the authorities into these deaths. There were delays in launching a full-scale search for these students once they were reported missing.” The inquest, which is being conducted in phases in front of a jury, is exploring what happened to 15-year-old Jethro Anderson, 18-year-old Curran Strang, 21-year-old Paul Panacheese, 19-year-old Robyn Harper, 17-year-old Kyle Morrisseau, 15-year-old Jordan Wabasse and 15-year-old Reggie Bushie. The deaths, which occurred between 2000 and 2011, all took place while the students were living in Thunder Bay, away from their First Nations communities, in order to be able to attend high school. Many northern Ontario communities lack high schools, which forces young people to live in boarding houses that are closer to available facilities, Fiddler said. “For the most part, you don’t have a choice but to go to high school _ whether it is in Sioux Lookout or Timmins or Thunder Bay,” he said. It’s an experience with which Fiddler has first-hand knowledge. “For me, it was the realization I was one of those kids,” he said, recalling the memory of leaving his First Nations community to attend school in Sioux Lookout and Thunder Bay. “It hits pretty close to home. You can’t help but feel that you have to do something about what was happening _ and what is happening.” Although the jury’s conclusions are not binding, the hope is that it can make recommendations in order to prevent deaths in similar circumstances. The inquest is expected to highlight systemic problems with First Nations child welfare and access to education _ areas also flagged in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s recent findings in its exhaustive study of Canada’s now-defunct residential school system. In an interview with The Canadian Press, Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett called the Thunder Bay deaths a “terrible tragedy.” “Obviously the child welfare system is not working and I have already promised that we will look at it and overhaul it to make sure that we can have families stay together whenever possible,” said Bennett. “This is truly sobering, this inquest … we want to be able to put in place concrete actions at all levels of government to prevent this tragedy in the future.” Canada may no longer have residential schools, but the attitudes and stigmas that helped bring them about are still a factor, said NDP Indigenous affairs critic Charlie Angus, whose northern Ontario riding includes a number of First Nations communities. “I’ve spoken with young people who have left home at 14 and lived in boarding houses,” Angus said.“ They talk about the residential schools; they say, ‘This is what my grandparents when through.”’ Young Indigenous people are often forced to leave their tight-knit home communities behind, ending up in big cities that can be dark and dangerous alternate worlds, Angus said. “Why is that situation happening? It is because the federal government doesn’t supply high schools in many of these communities.” Bennett said the new Liberal government is looking at solutions. “I’m heartened by the fact that so many people are thinking about these things and obviously it really touches Charlie Angus’s riding,” she said. “The kinds of supports and services that are there for those communities (are) clearly not adequate.”last_img read more

App to detect fake currency developed

first_imgKolkata: Researchers at IIT Kharagpur have developed a smartphone-based application to detect counterfeit currency and also provided solutions for industrial operations ranging from thermal power plants to nuclear radiation tracking, an official said. A group of six students from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering developed the code for a smartphone application to detecting counterfeit currency. The image processing application which can detect counterfeit currency, can be installed on smartphones and thus used by people at various points to reduce the chances of fraud, a statement said. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellers”A user can upload a currency note image and the mobile app would verify its authenticity using 25 features extracted from the front and rear side of the currency note. In case of detection of a fake note, the user will also be notified…,” TYSS Santosh, the research leader, said. To address the issue of occupational hazard for people working in the domain of a nuclear-powered device, students were asked to develop a solution for visualising and localising a 3D radiation source along with its size, shape and orientation, given the data on spatial dosage. The 6-member student team proposed a solution based on Boltzmann Transport Equations dealing with the flow of heat in fluids from hotter regions to colder ones. The students solved the reverse Boltzmann Transport Equations using the dataset for a given area to estimate the source location. “This solution is well-suited to occupational workers carrying wearable sensors detecting radiation dose data.”last_img read more

Garda escort bikes out of action for two months

first_imgALL OF THE garda escort motorcycles in the country were taken off-road for July and August, while local traffic units covered escorts, TheJournal.ie has learned.The motorcycles, which are used for presidential escorts, in the transportation of prisoners to and from court and for escorting ambulances to hospitals in serious cases, are also used in regular traffic duty.There are around 20 of these bikes, based in the Dublin Metropolitan Region, and all of them were out of action for two months, under the premise that they would be undergoing health and safety checks, sources have said.“That would have taken no more than two weeks,” a source said. “People were asking why they were sitting there for another six weeks and why no one was using them.”Over this two month period, gardaí were doing escorts on traffic motorcycles which were described as “substandard”, as they are much less powerful than the Yamaha FJR escort bikes and cannot reach the speeds required.TheJournal.ie also learned that the traffic corps in Dublin had been pushing escorts towards local traffic units, though escort duty is generally performed by gardaí based at Dublin Castle.Stretched resourcesSources said there is a belief among gardaí that this move was taken to make immediate savings in the stretched garda budget. Overall numbers of garda vehicles have been decreasing in the last number of years from 2,677 in 2011 to 2,473 in June 2013.The number of garda motorcycles has fallen from 238 in 2009 to 170 in March of this year.Almost 130 of these vehicles were more than five-years-old with 71 of those being used for at least seven years. An Garda Síochána is required to replace vehicles once they reach a certain mileage but the limit for motorcycles is much lower than for cars and it is thought that the ageing bikes are being kept off the roads to delay their replacement.One garda source said the budget limits the purchase of new vehicles but there is a larger provision for repairs and so they are often fixed up multiple times – even if it costs more than replacing them.It is understood that last year, a garda car involved in a head-on collision in Limerick was repaired at a cost of almost €6,000, despite the fact that the car could have been replaced for about €3,000.“If that car had cost €10,000 to repair it would have been paid because the repairs budget is higher – there’s no lateral thinking”, the source explained. We’re in cars with wires exposed, radios and sirens not working, crashed and then patched up. There’s no budget for new cars but there’s a budget for repairing them so when something should be written off, instead there’s thousands poured into it to keep it on the road.‘Monitored and reviewed’In response to a query on the issue, the Garda Press Office said:The allocation of these vehicles will be determined by Garda Traffic, Dublin Castle consistent with operational requirements and the operational requirements in the Dublin Metropolitan Region will be considered within the the overall operational requirement of the organisation.“The allocation of garda motorcycles is monitored and reviewed on a continual basis to ensure the best match with operational requirements,” it added.When contacted by TheJournal.ie, the Department of Justice declined to comment.This report was first published on Monday, 23 September 2013, at 6am.Read: Gardaí feel like ‘sitting ducks’ after decision to withdraw Uzi submachine gun>Read: ‘I have given as much as I can’ – garda speaks out against pay cuts>last_img read more

But if you’re not, here is Alice from First Dates on how to find your boo.center_img 3,607 Views By Alice Marr First Dates is easily the most human dating show we’ve ever seen, although admittedly most of us watch its fly-on-the-wall intimacy through our fingers. First Dates Ireland waitress Alice Marr writes us a guest column about love, romance, first dates and Valentine’s Day.I’M NOT A dating expert. But from the eclectic assortment of dates I have been on, and all of the moments in the First Dates restaurant, I like to think I have picked up a few ideas about the dating world.When it comes to how to behave with your date, as much as it sounds cliché, I really put an emphasis on being yourself. Do you ever notice that you find yourself attracted to people who are really at ease and comfortable in their skin, no matter what they might look like? Confidence and self-assurance is sexy.So instead of putting all this energy into being who you think your date might want you to be, find ways to express the best parts of you. I would never complain or moan much on a date as who really wants to hear that. I tend to focus on the positive and on the real.But don’t delve too deeply into the personal. There will be plenty of time for that if the relationship grows.Embrace it, but be chillFrom working on First Dates, I’ve learned that everyone gets nervous. No matter who you are, in that moment when you are waiting to meet your possible match, you’re bound to be nervous.I would recommend getting something you know you will take your time drinking, so that you don’t accidentally drink a lot before getting to the main course. It’s lovely to have a drink or two as you ease into the date, but I would cap it there. We all know how we can get after having that one drink too many.Low expectations Source: Shutterstock/Kaspars GrinvaldsThere are many people we may initially find attractive. But with time how many end up being compatible with us? When heading out for a date I would keep expectations to a minimum.Yes, sometimes you can hope it will all go fantastically and you will never look at anyone else again, but sometimes being realistic is a necessity.Try to enjoy yourself, have a laugh and see where it may or may not go. Sometimes it is just really fun to date and keep it relaxed without being enveloped in expectations.Decoding body languageYou can read a lot about a person by their physicality, the distance they create between themselves and you, as they connect with you and focus on you. Watch out too if every exterior stimuli is distracting them.Everyone is different so obviously this is not a blanket statement. But if they are interested you can tell by how they are interacting with you verbally and physically.While I am on a date there are certain indications that lead me to believe that the date isn’t working. If the other person seems to be paying me very little attention and not connecting with me, I think it either means that they are just not that interested or that maybe they are a little too interested in themselves. Both of those are warning signs for me not to pursue this any further.I want to meet someone who is intrigued by meThis may seem harsh but sometimes in dating you have to be cut throat, so that you can foresee the car crashes before they happen.When you know you don’t want to see the other person again, in my experience the best way to deal with it is clarity. Say directly that you don’t want to pursue it anymore. This way there are no mixed signals and other than mild rejection, any major hurt is avoided.Mind gamesIn those exciting times when the date goes well (yay) I would try to gauge the possibility of us meeting again before we part. In the past I have allowed time pass and waited to see if they are interested enough to want to meet again. But at this stage I get a little tired of the games that we play when we are interested in someone.Of course, you don’t want to come on too strong. It’s best to keep some of your cards close to your chest. But when you are both hitting it off, there is no reason to be afraid of saying that you’d like to see each other again.So there you go, a little insight into Alice’s world of dating. This is what works for me, but as we know, every date is unique and comes with a different set of rules.Alice Marr is a waitress on First Dates Ireland.

Soylent Stops Selling Powdered Meal Mix Because Its Making People Barf

first_imgStay on target Soylent’s efforts to replace regular solid food have been derailed. The Silicon Valley startup has been forced to take its flagship meal replacement powder off the market following multiple reports of nausea, vomiting, and other gastrointestinal issues. This is the second product Soylent has pulled in recent weeks because of customer complaints.The pitch for Soylent is that it’s easier and cheaper than eating regular healthy food. You can get a cheeseburger pretty cheap, but living entirely on fast food isn’t smart. Soylent is designed to include all the fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, protein, and other nutrients you need to consume in a day. So, instead of making dinner or paying someone else to do it, you mix up some Soylent when you have a spare moment and guzzle it down.Soylent has been gaining popularity, especially in the tech sector. Soylent announced the v2.0 update to its formula last year, but it has only been available as a pre-mixed bottle. The dry powder is the more economical option, and it’s still at v1.6. That’s what has been causing the stomach issues for consumers, but the v1.5 formulation wasn’t doing that. The company contends that only 0.1% of its customers have experienced any problems with the 1.6 powder. Testing has allegedly ruled out any food-borne pathogens or toxic materials.The recently released nutrition bars were pulled several weeks ago because of similar complaints. So, Soylent says it has narrowed the cause down to one of several ingredients that were added in the v1.6 powder and were present in the nutrition bar. For the time being, you can still buy the Soylent drink, which costs $32 for 12 bottles, but you drink five per day for a full Soylent diet. The powder was only $54 for a month supply.

ASAs SoyGrowerscom Partners with MachineryLink to Help Farmers Bottomline Profit

first_imgAs much as 40 percent of a farmer’s total crop production expenses can be tied up in equipment. With that in mind, SoyGrowers.com, a service of the American Soybean Association (ASA), has joined with MachineryLink to help growers reduce that production cost.By signing on to www.SoyGrowers.com and using MachineryLink, farmers will be able to share, lease, sell or purchase equipment in ways that will help them make more efficient use of their equipment dollars. For example, the Innovation Managed Lease Program allows growers to utilize the newest, most efficient, name-brand combines for a fraction of the cost of full ownership or traditional leases. The Innovation Fractional Ownership Program provides similar benefits for those preferring to retain some ownership.“Growers from Montana to Oklahoma have been participating in the Innovation Programs and tell us these programs are far better than having expensive equipment sit idle for 10 months while finance, storage and insurance costs continue,” said David Forsee, President of MachineryLink.ASA President Bart Ruth of Rising City, NE, called the new alliance “a wonderful way to give farmers the opportunity to be more profitable in one expense area where they can make an impact on their bottom line while gaining efficiency.”A typical Innovation Program scenario includes the sharing of one combine by multiple growers on either a lease basis or through fractional ownership similar to the way corporate jets are shared. The combine might start with a grower in Oklahoma who harvests winter wheat, then moves to a North Dakota grower and finally moves to Iowa where a farmer harvests soybeans in the fall.MachineryLink, based in Kansas City, was started by Kansas farmer Dave Govert who set out to create a better ag machinery resource that would help growers reduce their total annual production costs. In addition to the Innovation Equipment Programs, MachineryLink offers an online Marketplace with more than 11,000 pieces of used ag equipment for sale, a Resource Center that includes tractor pricing guidelines, as well as other equipment resources for farmers.In addition to MachineryLink, SoyGrowers.com also offers a service called, “Crop and Yield Planner,” to help growers increase profitability. The service provides highly-accurate satellite-based projections of soybean, corn, and winter wheat yields a month prior to U.S. Department of Agriculture projections and projects growing season conditions and planting times several months ahead of the season.last_img read more

week of December China intruded nearly a kilometre into Indian territory at Arunachal Pradesh and started road-construction activities before they were challenged by Indian security forces and beat a

and Indian troops handed over road-building equipment Chinese workers which they left behind China claimed its construction workers “inadvertently” strayed into India’s side of the Line of Actual

salami-slicing tactics China’s madness is methodical It never does ‘inadvertent’ things Just as Doka La was initiated to achieve multiple targets — test the boundaries of India’s tolerance threshold establish military control over a strategic location and drive a wedge between India and Bhutan — similarly the Arunachal incursion and attempt to change ‘facts on the ground’ through construction activities will have larger implications A larger question stares at us: What does China hope to achieve by salami-slicing into sovereign territories At the height of Doka La standoff COAS Rawat sounded apprehensive about the possibility of a two-front war arising out of China’s ‘salami-slicing’ tactics ‘Salami-slicing’ (coined by Hungarian Communist leader Mátyás Rákosi in the late 1940s) refers to the Chinese strategy of incremental and clandestine acts of territorial aggression that are individually well below the limits of tolerance but pose a cumulative political and strategic threat eventually seeking to undermine a nation’s sovereignty Through these seemingly imperceptible actions China subtly alters the status quo changes ‘facts on ground’ and lays claim over the altered reality Under President Xi Jinping China is increasingly employing this coercive strategy to assert itself across Asia Pacific and in the high Himalayan region where it shares a nearly 4000-kilometre

doping "Our stand is no excuse towards someone who has cheated As of today any athlete who has offended will be hit by a life ban" he said The move means Ethiopian athletes who fail tests and are subject to a four-year ban from 28 December onwards will no longer be able to represent the country in any competition The punishment is much stricter than the one currently imposed by the International Olympic Committee whose rules stipulate that athletes caught doping can face four-year bans but after serving it they are eligible to compete in any international event including the Olympics Gebrselassie said his aim was to convince the sport’s world governing body that Ethiopia was serious in tackling doping and for it to be removed from the list of countries identified by IAAF

coerce India to amend its national IP regime to suit the former’s business interests (Reuters) Related News Even as the Khobragade scandal fades from public memory another controversy threatens to derail US-India bilateral relations This time around the battle is over intellectual property (IP) rights A US governmental agency the International Trade Commission (ITC) recently initiated an inquiry into allegations that India’s IP regime was flawed and at odds with US business interests In the Khobragade case there had been noise about how India had to learn to respect the “national” laws of the US The present controversy highlights the US’s efforts to coerce India to amend its national IP regime to suit the former’s business interests Clearly multinational pharmaceutical companies are upset with India’s rigorous patent threshold In other countries patent regimes are routinely gamed to protect and even promote the evergreening of drugs (that is when an old drug that is off patent is modified ever so slightly so that an additional patent monopoply can be procured) India in its 2005 amendments to the patents act sent a clear message that it would not suffer evergreening The “notorious” Section 3(d) has been used to axe many an evergreening attempt the most significant being Novartis’s anti-cancer drug Glivec In similar vein India went on to grant a compulsory licence to Bayer’s excessively priced anti-cancer drug (selling at Rs 28 lakh a month) paving the way for a cheaper generic to enter the market at Rs 8800 per month All of this was done in conformity with Indian patent law and WTO obligations More importantly the licence was issued after a rigorous judicial process Yet big pharma continues to remain peeved and has been offering testimony after testimony in the US on how Indian IP law is not “respectful” of global pharma interests It seems oblivious to the fact that US courts denied injunctions to patentees and effectively granted de facto compulsory licences when they deemed it necessary in “public interest” The Bayer and the Novartis cases will no doubt take centrestage at this inquiry triggered by senators who complained among other things that India “has applied its patent law in a discriminatory manner particularly against innovative US pharmaceutical companies so as to advantage its domestic industries” In what appears to be a bid to show India in poor light at these hearings the US Chamber of Commerce’s Global IP Centre (GIPC) issued a timely report ranking the IP regimes of a curious assortment of 25 countries Unsurprisingly the US topped the list and India came in last The Chamber of Commerce has now gone on to demand that the US trade representative classify India as a “priority foreign country” a status reserved for the worst IP offenders and one that could potentially lead to trade sanctions Given that the GIPC report was authored by prominent members of a thinktank (Pugatch Consilium) who consult significantly with big pharma it is reasonable to suspect its “independence” This is more than evident from a methodology that seems designed to make India look bad First the report lumps together a diverse set of countries without regard to their socio-economic status or their developmental imperatives If history is any indication almost every country had minimalist IP protection at the start of its technological trajectory and moved to a maximalist IP position when its indigenous units had built sufficient capacity Indeed as the American historian Doron Ben Atar reminds us the US was once a “pirate” economy with American enterprises being encouraged to “borrow” freely from European technology Second there is no real mention of why the GIPC report picked the indicators they did or how it weighted them For instance the baseline value of the compulsory licencing index and the consequent ranking is extremely critical of any issuance of a licence even when it is fully compliant with WTO-TRIPS norms Third much of the ranking rests on “perception” and conveniently enough the perception of US multinationals that have faced difficulty extracting excessive patent rents from India Relying on perception particularly when patent numbers and “data” abound is not just shoddy but dishonest Last there is a delicious paradox underlying the flawed GIPC ranking and methodology The report appears premised on the perception that an IP regime that offers more protection to inventions even trivial ones is a “strong” one Countries such as India which stands for genuine invention and will not suffer low quality evergreened varieties are surprisingly labelled as “weak” In fact stretched to its logical limit the GIPC index would suggest a score of “infinity”
