Unusual occurrence of Illex argentinus (Cephalopoda: Ommastrephidae) in the diet of albatrosses breeding at Bird Island, South Georgia

first_imgIn Southwest Atlantic waters, the short-finned squid Illex argentinus is distributed along the Patagonian shelf and slope, from approximately 22° to 54°S ( Haimovici et al., 1998). I. argentinus has rarely been recorded in the diet of marine predators breeding on the Falkland Islands, but very few detailed studies have been undertaken (Thompson, 1992). However, it is present in the diet of wandering albatrosses Diomedea exulans (Rodhouse et al., 1987) and white-chinned petrels Procellaria aequinoctialis (Berrow and Croxall, 1999) breeding at Bird Island, South Georgia (54°S 38°W), approximately 600 km distant to the east.Other predators at South Georgia, such as the grey-headed albatross Thalassarche chrysostoma and black-browed albatross Thalassarche melanophrys have not been recordedfeeding on I. argentinus. The squid component of the diet f those species at South Georgia is dominated by Martialia hyadesi both in number and mass (Rodhouse et al., 1990; Rodhouse and Prince, 1993). This study presents new data on the unusual occurrence of I. argentinus in the diet ofalbatrosses breeding at South Georgia in 1999 and evaluates alternative hypotheses tolast_img read more

Annelid Fauna of the Prince Gustav Channel, a previously ice-covered seaway on the northeastern Antarctic Peninsula.

first_imgThe Prince Gustav Channel is a narrow seaway located in the western Weddell Sea on the northeastern-most tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. The channel is notable for both its deep (>1200 m) basins, and a dynamic glacial history that most recently includes the break-up of the Prince Gustav Ice Shelf, which covered the southern portion of the channel until its collapse in 1995. However, the channel remains mostly unsampled, with very little known about its benthic biology. We present a preliminary account of the benthic annelid fauna of the Prince Gustav Channel in addition to samples from Duse Bay, a sheltered, glacier-influenced embayment in the northwestern portion of the channel. Samples were collected using an Agassiz Trawl, targeting megafaunal and large macrofaunal sized animals at depths ranging between 200–1200 m; the seafloor and associated fauna were also documented in situ using a Shallow Underwater Camera System (SUCS). Sample sites varied in terms of depth, substrate type, and current regime, and communities were locally variable across sites in terms of richness, abundance, and both taxonomic and functional composition. The most diverse family included the motile predator/scavenger Polynoidae, with 105 individuals in at least 12 morphospecies, primarily from a single site. This study provides first insights into diverse and spatially heterogeneous benthic communities in a dynamic habitat with continuing glacial influence, filling sampling gaps in a poorly studied region of the Southern Ocean at direct risk from climate change. These specimens will also be utilized in future molecular investigations, both in terms of describing the genetic biodiversity of this site and as part of wider phylogeographic and population genetic analyses assessing the connectivity, evolutionary origins, and demographic history of annelid fauna in the region.last_img read more

Bird, meet cousin alligator

first_imgBirds and alligators have little in common, other than that the first is sometimes the other’s lunch. That hasn’t always been the case, though, and that’s what attracts Arkhat Abzhanov.Alligators and birds are part of the same larger group, called archosaurs, which has existed for 250 million years and which has given rise not only to birds and crocodilians, but also to dinosaurs. Though dinosaurs are now extinct, the crocodilians, such as alligators, crocodiles, and narrow-jawed gharials live on, and scientists see in them many characteristics of the primitive archosaurs.To Abzhanov, an assistant professor of organismic and evolutionary biology at Harvard who studies birds and how they developed, researching alligators gives him the chance to compare birds to something akin to their ancestors.“It’s really about opening a door to understand what happened in avian evolution to come up with their unique body plan,” Abzhanov said. “How did it evolve? What actually happened?”Millions of years ago, archosaurs diverged into several groups, scientists say. One became modern crocodilians, and another dinosaurs. The dinosaurs evolved many forms, including the smaller and feathered kind, like the archaeopteryx, which is considered ancestral to modern birds.“Archaeopteryx is a good example of a feathered dinosaur that could fly,” Abzhanov said. “It’s actually now hard to say where dinosaurs end and birds begin.”Modern birds do have many unusual features, including beaks and skulls with fused sutures. Their wings are modified forelimbs, and their backbones evolved to allow for flexible necks, waists, and fused lower vertebrae that form rigid foundations for tail feathers, called pygostyles.Crocodilians retained many of the characteristics of the primitive archosaurs, such as a more complex skull with bones lost in avian evolution, a large body, and a more conserved body plan.“If you look at the entire archosaur branch, we have one of the most derived groups, birds, still around,” Abzhanov said. “Unfortunately, we don’t have the intermediate group in dinosaurs, but we have crocodilians, one of the most basal groups.”In ongoing work that already has resulted in two scientific papers, Abzhanov examined alligator and bird embryos and compared the functioning of key developmental HOX genes. Prior research showed that HOX genes turn on and off at key points in an animal’s development and are responsible for the orderly growth of body segments. They ensure, in effect, that the head goes at the top, the feet at the bottom, and everything else in the proper positions in between.HOX genes are so important in animal development that they’ve been highly conserved across millions of years of evolution. Even jellyfish have three — front, middle, and back. Birds and alligators have 13 groups of HOX genes. Some of the key differences in their body plans are related to HOX-controlled neck and lower-back development. Abzhanov is examining those genes and the effects of the proteins they produce, called transcription factors, to get at the root of those differences.First, he looked at HOX genes from groups four and five, which control neck development in chick and mouse embryos. In alligators, the vertebrae forming the neck have cervical ribs, similar to the chest, and thus very little flexibility, which is why alligators have to turn their whole bodies to move their heads around. Such a condition is considered ancestral to all archosaurs and, in fact, all land vertebrates.Birds, on the other hand, couldn’t be more different. From the long, elegant neck of the swan to the rotationally flexible neck of the owl, birds’ neck vertebrae are ribless, allowing the head a lot of movement without having to turn the body.Abzhanov asked similar questions about the lower back, or lumbar region. Alligators’ lumbar vertebrae also sport short ribs and bestow little flexibility, also an ancestral feature. The backbones of birds lose their ribs as they approach the waist — a feature shared by some mammals, including humans — permitting flexibility. While the functioning of HOX genes in birds was known, their expression and operation in alligators largely was not, Abzhanov said.When he examined the HOX genes responsible for neck and lower-back development, though, the mystery deepened. Despite the very different developmental outcomes in birds and alligators, the genes themselves were expressed in pretty much the same domains in the two animals. HOX genes themselves also appear to be very similar in birds and alligators.The search is now leading Abzhanov deeper into the alligator and bird genome, and farther along the path of how HOX genes function. HOX genes are called master genes because the transcription factors they produce control the functioning of many other genes. Abzhanov believes the differences in alligator and bird bodies are due to different responses to those transcription factors in other genes.“What’s changed [between alligators and birds] is the interaction between HOX genes and downstream targets,” Abzhanov said. “What’s happening is the downstream genes lose, gain, or change binding sites for HOX [transcription factors]. Otherwise, the stage is set for the future body plan changes — the HOX genes were already deployed to allow for evolution of future distinct neck and lumbar regions.”The added complexity is not entirely unexpected, Abzhanov said. Because HOX genes control many downstream genes that do different things, changing the functioning of a HOX gene would produce many changes, not all desirable. From an evolutionary standpoint, it makes more sense to alter the sensitivity of downstream genes to HOX transcription factors, changing a single gene at a time.“It is a bit like building a house. You have the same bricks, the same tools, but buildings can come out differently,” Abzhanov said. “It’s how and when you use these tools that’s important.”last_img read more

Lin-Manuel Miranda Makes Time’s 100 Most Influential People

first_img View Comments Tony and Pulitzer winner Lin-Manuel Miranda has yet another accolade to add to his resume in the wake of Hamilton’s praise: a spot on Time’s “100 Most Influential People.” The 2016 list also includes Tony winner and recent Oscar winner Mark Rylance, Broadway alum Ariana Grande and New York stage-bound Oscar Isaac.J.J. Abrams, a noted Hamilton fan who tasked Miranda with writing a song for the latest Star Wars movie, wrote a tribute for him in Time. “His wit would be intimidating if not for his natural and infectious charm,” Abrams said. “Somehow he is as generous, collaborative and lovable as he is innovative and brilliant.” Though Time does have an Artists section on the list, Miranda tops the Pioneers list, and is one of the magazine’s six commemorative covers for the issue.Steven Spielberg wrote of Rylance, “The impact he’s had on classical and contemporary theater is the stuff of legend…His heart belongs to a good story. His soul is pure. He just loves to act.” Rylance won his first Oscar in February for his performance in the Spielberg-helmed Bridge of Spies, and the two have a full lineup of upcoming projects together: The BFG, The Kidnapping of Edgargo Mortara and Ready Player One.Grande remains close to her Broadway roots, as evident by her choice in accompanist at the MTV Movie Awards earlier this month: Jason Robert Brown. The Tony-winning composer, whose musical 13 gave Grande her big break, wrote the following for the pop star: “That voice—powered by nothing but your remarkable empathy, your ravenous intelligence, your cool discipline and your voracious ambition. They’re going to underestimate you, and you, my beautiful friend, are going to make music.” Hamilton Related Shows Lin-Manuel Miranda(Photo: Bruce Glikas)center_img from $149.00 Star Files Lin-Manuel Mirandalast_img read more

$114,000 federal grant to make Winooski community center energy efficient

first_imgUS Rep. Peter Welch on Monday announced a $114,000 federal grant to improve the energy efficiency of the O Brien Community Center in Winooski. The funds will be used to fully insulate the community center s roof and implement other energy-saving measures. The O Brien Center spent $4,000 in heating bills last year. Once the new roof is installed, the center is expected to save 45 percent in heating costs. This grant will go a long way to improving a vital community center which provides great service to the people of Winooski, Welch said. By making the O Brien Center more energy efficient, we will help Winooski save money and do our small part to fight climate change.Welch made the announcement at the O Brien Center Monday morning alongside several Winooski residents, including Parks and Recreation Director Bob DiMasi, Mayor Mike O Brien, Acting City Manager George Cross, YMCA former board chairwoman Molly Lambert, chair of the project committee Penrose Jackson, YMCA Executive Director Mary Burns, Patricia McKitrich, Rep.

Newly revised Residential Building Energy Code now in effect

first_imgCommissioner Elizabeth Miller has announced that the newly revised Residential Building Energy Code is in effect as of October 1, 2011. Miller states, ‘As new building construction and renovations in existing buildings take place in Vermont, the new Residential Building Energy Codes will help ensure we are continuing to move to more efficient and sustainable homes.  Building new homes to the 2011 Residential Energy Code will yield increased energy savings of 10-20% over the previous Energy Code.  This means less energy consumption, fewer emissions, and lower energy bills for Vermonters.’  Commissioner Miller expects a similar, if not greater, impact with the new Commercial Energy Code which is on track to take effect in early January 2012. The 2011 Vermont Residential Building Energy Code, officially called the ‘Residential Building Energy Standards’ (RBES), was initially adopted by the Vermont legislature in May 1997 and updated in 2006.   The legislation provides for regular review and updates to the provisions in the Code by the Department of Public Service.  The Code has applied to all new residential construction in Vermont since it first went into effect July 1, 1998. The 2011 Residential Building Energy Code is based on Vermont amendments to the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code and is a minimum standard of energy efficiency that now applies to all alterations and renovations for existing homes as well as new construction.  The Department is also currently in the process of completing a statewide energy code compliance study that will outline a realistic approach for achieving 90 percent compliance with the Energy Codes by February 1, 2017.  The study will address how to best implement on-going training related to Energy Code updates, unified Energy Code enforcement measures, a process to evaluate and report annual rates of Energy Code compliance, and short and long term funding mechanisms for implementation.  Residential Energy Code handbooks, certificates and technical assistance are currently available at no cost. The handbook puts all the information you need to know about Vermont’s Energy Code for residential construction into one publication.  For additional information or a hard copy of the RBES handbook and certificate contact the Department of Public Service Planning and Energy Resources Division at 802-828-2811 or visit the website at http://publicservice.vermont.gov/energy/ee_resbuildingstandards.html(link is external).  For free technical assistance and training opportunities contact the Energy Code Assistance Center toll free at 855-887-0673. PSD. 10.3.2011last_img read more

Remembering a Friend

first_imgThe sun shone brightly on the rolling fields of Warren Wilson College, illuminating the pack of riders who pedaled their way to the ash garden where they watched our young friend Callum Robertson return to the ground in his final epic ride.Brave friends and family stepped up to the pulpit in the packed chapel Saturday afternoon, remembering Callum’s smile, his energy, his love, his creativity, the adoration for his family, and, like any good rider, his propensity to exaggerate for the sake of a good story.It was confusing almost, that it was a funeral, rather than a wedding, as his family was in the midst of rejoicing over his choice in Caitlin Thomas as his bride. She, dressed in the brightest colors of the sun, professed her love to him at his funeral instead.We all marveled at how closely he melded the circles of friends, leaving us all in merely two degrees of separation. More than 20 people gathered on Sunday in Brevard to ride Callum’s favorite trails, blessed by a warm and sunny day. Afterward we packed the Altamont Brewery and welcomed the parade of bikes that rode across West Asheville via Haywood Road.I hope that his family will soon find peace in this tragedy and know that they blessed us all by raising a boy filled with beauty, which he easily bestowed on those he loved.Swannanoa–Callum Miles Robertson, 27, passed away Friday January 6, 2012 at his home. He was born June 7, 1984 to Ian Charles and Victoria Elaine Muscott Robertson. He is also survived by his fiancée Caitlin Thomas; sister Hannah Robertson of Chesapeake, VA; Victoria Winters of Scotland, UK; brother-in-law Matthew Freel of Chesapeake, VA; grandparent, William Muscott of Carlisle, UK; uncle Keith Muscott, aunts Lyn and Elaine, and cousins, all of the UK; nephew Logan Miles Robertson Freel; and niece Corinna Rose Robertson Freel. Callum was a graduate of Asheville High School, and attended Sheldon Jackson College of Alaska, and Warren Wilson College.Ian, Victoria and Hannah Robertson are sad to share news of the death of their beloved son and brother, Callum (6/7/84 to 1/6/12). Callum lived life to the fullest, enjoyed adventure, and travels worldwide with friends and family. He was an avid and competitive mountain biker, loving and generous friend to many, and a joy to be around. He could create and make beautiful objects from clay, wood, or metal and bicycle parts. We had rejoiced in his recent engagement to Caitlin Thomas with whom we share our grief. We do not want flowers. If you wish to remember Callum, please donate to the Warren Wilson College Mountain Bike Team or the Montessori Learning Center of Asheville, a non-profit preschool Callum loved, and support both of these programs. We take only magnificent and wonderful memories of Callum with us into the future.Join us in a celebration of Callum’s life at 2 p.m. Saturday, January 14, 2012 at Warren Wilson Chapel, with a reception after at the Fellowship Hall. Officiating will be Steve Runholt and Jeanne Sommer. Following this, his ashes are to be placed at the Warren Wilson cemetery. We invite those who want to participate to join us on a mountain bike ride through the fields or by car to the cemetery. Time will be given to allow sharing of memories at the chapel and the cemetery. Visit our community site: Robertson and Thomas Family Support Powered by Lotsa Helping Hands.last_img read more

Two-way transparency: The gold standard for high performance

first_img 90SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Joel Trammell Joel Trammell is a successful CEO and entrepreneur with a 20-year career in IT-related software companies. He is currently CEO of Khorus, which provides a business management system for CEOs … Web: www.khorus.com Details Slowly but surely, US business leaders are realizing that transparency within their companies is no longer an option. Enterprise technology, the expectations of Millennials, and the need for faster, better collaboration have pushed the concept of institutional openness into the mainstream. Our best CEOs are now embracing it as a significant competitive advantage.These leaders know that transparency isn’t just flashing a revenue slide at staff meetings, or about seeming trendy. They know it’s about a culture change, intended to engage the team and equip them with the information they need to do their best work.The two sides of transparencyHowever, the common understanding of organizational transparency—that the CEO and top leadership team will hand down relevant information to employees—leaves out a critical piece of the equation.For transparency to work at full capacity, relevant information has to flow both ways, from the CEO and to the CEO. When this happens, a feedback loop emerges:traditional top-down transparency helps employees see into the core of the business, even asbottom-up transparency gives the CEO a clear view of day-to-day operations and the insight of his team.These two brands of transparency reinforce and supplement each other. By keeping both sides in touch with the reality of the other, they result in a more cohesive, aligned company.It’s not unlike this recent study from Harvard Business School, which tested food quality in a restaurant based on whether the cooks and patrons could see each other. When transparency was one-way, food-quality ratings increased 10 percent. But when transparency was two-way—when customers and cooks could both see each other—quality ratings went up 17.3 percent and service was 13.2 percent faster.Who’s responsible for setting up two-way transparency in your credit union? Ultimately, it’s the chief executive. As I wrote in The CEO Tightrope, the best CEOs “set up a communication infrastructure that promotes transparent information flow both from the CEO and to the CEO, and this transparency helps keep the company on course toward its vision.”Let’s look at four modes CEOs may operate in depending on how well they carry out this responsibility.The walled-off CEO: No transparency either way This CEO guards information about finances, strategy, and key decisions like they’re the queen’s jewels, even as he fails to see into the daily operations of his team. There’s a brick wall between the inner sanctum of the CEO and the on-the-ground operations of his team.This lack of transparency either way cuts a deep divide in the organization. There’s chaos in the rank-and-file, and the CEO tries to lead without the critical insights his people hold.The giver CEO: Top-down transparency aloneThis CEO understands that the modern workforce wants and needs transparency, so she regularly hands out information to the team: company strategy and goals, financial performance, key decisions, etc.What she’s not so good at is ensuring that she has transparency into how things are proceeding on the ground. She’s basically set up a one-way mirror: the company can analyze her and all her plans and thought processes, but when she looks down into the organization, she sees her own reflection. She’s achieved half-transparency, but she still fits the old cliché about CEOs: she’s the last to know when something goes wrong. Good intentions aside, she won’t be an effective leader. The surveillance CEO: Bottom-up transparency aloneThis CEO demands transparency from his people, but he’s not so good at giving it them. He may set up complex data-collection systems, and want to know what’s on everyone’s plate at all times. And so help him God if he’s not the first to know when a project goes off the rails.Despite his goal of omniscience, this CEO leaves his team in the dark, reverting to an outmoded understanding of employees as mere ditch-diggers. His team is likely disengaged by lack of clarity on the state or direction of the company, and their efforts are probably diffuse and not well aligned with the CEO’s strategy.The truly transparent CEO: Two-way transparencyThis CEO strikes the right balance. She’s set up systems for sharing the company’s strategy, goals, and performance. She doesn’t just share data; she gives her informed take on what the company is doing right and where it needs to improve. She’s publicizes big wins internally, but is honest when the company faces a material challenge.At the same time, she’s set up systems that allow her people and teams to share information with her. She regularly gathers their feedback on how they think things are going—and what they expect for the future. She’s trained her employees to not just share data; they give her their honest, informed take on what’s going well and where potential problems are developing.Knowledge is power. Nowhere is that more true than in a company operating in a competitive, dynamic environment (and how many aren’t?). The most successful CEOs treat transparency like more than just another buzzword; they proactively set up processes that help everyone share honest information about the business.I founded Khorus precisely to help leaders scale this two-way transparency across the business. Get in touch today to learn how credit unions across the country are using enterprise software to bring more transparency, openness, and achievement to their organizations.last_img read more

Virus, climate change cause food shortages in parts of Indonesia

first_imgShortages in key commodities have been reported in most of Indonesia’s 34 provinces as the nation copes with the double whammy of the coronavirus outbreak causing supply chain disruption and a dry spell hurting harvests.Garlic, sugar, chili and chicken eggs are in short supply in more than 20 provinces, while rice, a staple food for Indonesians, is in deficit in seven provinces across the archipelago, according to government data presented by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo. Making matters worse, a dry season is looming on the horizon and may impact the overall output of the agriculture sector, which employs more than a quarter of the national workforce.Read also: Govt to secure staple food stocks as dry season approachesThe Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) has projected that more than 30 percent of the country’s regions, including parts of Bali, Java, Sumatra and Sulawesi, might face an unusually harsh dry season this month.“So there are two challenges right now: climate change and supply chain disruption due to the outbreak,” Institute for Development of Economics and Finance (Indef) researcher Dhenny Yuartha told The Jakarta Post.Of the 11 commodities, sugar, garlic and beef are the most at risk of short supply. The Food Security Agency has suggested speeding up the import of 207,743 tons of garlic, 85,474 tons of beef and 622,123 tons of sugar to ensure enough supplies for the April–June period.For sugar, for instance, shortages have been recorded in 30 provinces, causing prices to soar to Rp 18,250 (US$1.21) per kilogram, 46 percent higher than the government’s price ceiling of Rp 12,500 per kg.Dhenny said the shortages and soaring prices were mainly caused by late imports and disrupted supply chains. East Java, the country’s largest sugar cane producer, is a COVID-19 red zone.Center for Indonesian Policy Studies (CIPS) researcher Galuh Octania said the government should pay utmost attention to food stocks beyond November, because some of the regions hit by the worse-than-normal dry season were staple food production centers.President Jokowi has ordered his administration to store rainwater and start filling reservoirs, retention ponds and other artificial water storages to mitigate the impact. The government is also easing import processes to ensure sufficient food stocks, although the logistics of this are challenging as some producing countries have imposed lockdowns.Read also: Staple food imports arriving in May to safeguard stocks, prices: AirlanggaCoordinating Economic Minister Airlangga Hartarto reported Tuesday that 94,000 tons of garlic had arrived from China in April and estimated that 78,000 tons more would be shipped this month. As a result, the average price of garlic declined by 5 percent to Rp 42,650 per kg between March and April. However, it is still far higher than the government’s target of below Rp 30,000 per kg.Soaring food prices also hurt farmers, since two out of three farmers in the country are classified as “net consumers” and some of them are poor, according to Galuh. Food accounts for more than 60 percent of the monthly expenses among poor citizens, those who spend around Rp 500,000 a month, according to a 2019 survey by Statistics Indonesia (BPS).The government plans to provide Rp 300,000 in cash and production inputs like seeds and fertilizer valued at another Rp 300,000 per month to 2.7 million poor farmers. Eligible households can also get the Rp 200,000 monthly assistance to purchase food with the Staple Food Card program.“Rising prices may lower farmers’ purchasing power,” Galuh told the Post via text message. “Amid the coronavirus outbreak, farmers must fear that either they cannot sell their produce due to logistical disruption or their products may spoil.”Read also: Bulog struggles to import staple food as producing countries cap exportsThe Agriculture Ministry is considering making available 600,000 hectares of peatland in Central Kalimantan to produce buffer stocks. The government has yet to work out the details, but a similar measure under former president Soeharto on 1 million ha of peatland in the province resulted in crop failure.“If done in a hurry, the costly project to open a new field will lead to crop failure that hurt farmers and a greater risk of environmental damage,” CIPS researcher Felipa Ann Amanta was quoted as saying in a statement released on Tuesday.Topics : The data clash with the Agriculture Ministry’s claims that stockpiles, especially of Indonesia’s 11 key commodities, are “safe” and sufficient to meet nationwide demand during the annual peak consumption season of Ramadan, which began on April 24.The Food Security Agency’s head of food availability and security, Andriko Noto Susanto, said Indonesia had recorded surpluses in the 11 key food commodities at the national level, and any shortages at the regional level were “a normal situation”.“That is because there are provinces that serve as production centers, and there are those that do not,” Andriko told The Jakarta Post in a phone interview on Wednesday. “Provinces not producing rice may record a short supply of rice.”The Home Ministry went as far as encouraging district heads to empower local communities across Indonesia’s regions to plant their own staple foods, especially those in territories facing shortage. The COVID-19 pandemic will disrupt food supply within the country and around the world, exacerbating the situation.last_img read more

Mask after mask, Osaka brings protest to international audience

first_imgShe had previously worn a mask honoring Breonna Taylor, a Black woman killed by police officers who burst into her apartment in March, at her first-round match on Monday, and said she had seven different masks with her at the tournament.”When I heard about his story it was very hurtful,” Osaka later told reporters, when asked about McClain. In a lawsuit filed last month against the city of Aurora and its police, McClain’s family alleged he was tackled by police officers during an encounter despite presenting no physical threat.”I still don’t think his name is very put out there compared to, like, George Floyd or Breonna Taylor. For me, today was very special in the way that I wanted to represent him very well,” she said.The fourth-seeded Osaka, who has seen her platform grow with her success on the court, sent shockwaves through her sport when she announced last week that she would forego her Western & Southern Open semifinal in protest of police brutality and racial injustice in the United States.”I feel like the platform I have right now is something I used to take for granted,” she said.

first_img Rio Ferdinand tells Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop struggling 1 min. story Hannibal Mejbri is set to join Manchester United (Picture: Getty)Manchester United expect to complete a deal for Monaco wonderkid Hannibal Mejbri in the next 24 hours after seeing off late competition from Arsenal for the midfielder.The 16-year-old has been in negotiations with the Red Devils for over eight months and he’s been omitted from Monaco’s youth set-up after a long dispute with the club over his contract.Mejbri’s family claim the Ligue 1 giants have reneged on an agreement with the teenager and the disagreement threatened to spiral into a legal dispute.Part of the disagreement stems from Mejbri’s desire to move to Old Trafford but there’s been plenty of interest in the 16-year-old, who Monaco paid £1m for when he was just 14 years old.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT Coming Next PLAY Read More Manchester United captain Harry Maguire Advertisement Skip Ad Read More Hannibal Mejbri set to sign for Manchester United after rejecting late offer from Arsenal Comment 1/1 Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE Read Morecenter_img Top articles Read More Skip SPONSORED Full Screen by Metro Metro Sport ReporterThursday 1 Aug 2019 7:49 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link3.5kShares / United had hoped to sign Mejbri for a small compensation fee but the Red Devils have agreed to pay around £9.1m (€10m) fee for the wonderkid.According to L’Equipe, United had to fight off late competition from Arsenal to sign Mejbri.More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errorsThe Gunners were willing to rival United’s offer for the midfielder but the deal was too far down the line to backtrack.Mejbri and his representatives are expected in the north-west today to finalise the move and he’s set to become United’s third signing of the summer after Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.Mejbri is expected to go straight into United’s U18s squad as he awaits his professional debut and his signing will be seen as a coup for the club, who have been on an aggressive academy recruitment drive in the last 18 months.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to make at least two signings in the next week with Harry Maguire seen as a priority.Leicester are holding out for £80m for the England international.MORE: Jose Mourinho encourages Frank Lampard to use Kurt Zouma and Tammy Abraham at Chelsea Read More About Connatix V67539 Video Settings Advertisementlast_img read more

​Seven more Danish pension players back tax code of conduct

first_img“We expect our collaboration on responsible tax practices to strengthen our dialogue with external managers and thereby contribute to avoiding aggressive tax planning and at the same time promote fiscal transparency in investments,” they added.The need for a set of common principles on tax, for external managers within unlisted investments, became clear to many in the Danish pension industry after pension funds ATP, PFA and PKA moved to distance themselves from scandal-hit Australian bank Macquarie in autumn 2018.The CEOs of the seven pension funds now joining the tax protocol made their own joint statement, saying: “By highlighting a fair distribution of values and supporting the intentions underlying the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we can thereby control tax avoidance and aggressive tax planning.”They added that they hoped banding together would give the firms more influence with which to combat improper tax practices, and ensure a coordinated approach in conveying the funds’ expectations to external managers.Last month, while in talks with the four creators of the Danish Tax Code of Conduct, Velliv said it was introducing new tax practices for its investments, which would mean running more checks on its unlisted investments and participating in schemes such as the United Nations’ (UN) Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), which works to promote fair taxation. Seven large Danish pension funds have agreed to abide by a set of common tax principles aimed at stamping out aggressive tax planning by external managers, adding to the original four funds signing the code in August last year.PensionDenmark and ATP – two of the first signatories of the Danish Tax Code of Conduct alongside Industriens Pension and PFA Pension – announced today they are being joined by AP Pension, Lægernes Pension, MP Pension, PenSam, Pædagogernes Pension, P+ and Velliv.This brings the total number of signatory firms to 11, which together have DKK2.5trn (€335bn) in assets under external management, according to ATP and PensionDanmark.The chief executive officers of the four pension funds who originated the code of conduct said in a joint statement: “By joining forces, we naturally increase our influence.last_img read more

Police paying for child abuse tipoff leaves them open to ‘trumped up complaints’

A Children’s Commissioner with some common sense!!!!“Complaints could be made for money. They could be trumped up complaints, they could be half truths used to further the interests of a party. So it would have to be for serious alleged instances where no other information is available,” Mr Beecroft said.”      Children’s Commissioner Andrew Beecroft is cautiously supporting a police proposal to pay people to dob in child abusers.The plan has been revealed as another shocking and horrendous story of neglect has come to light, after a landlord found faeces and maggots in a Nelson house where two children under nine had been living.Other child abuse cases have ended fatally and Detective Superintendent Tim Anderson says people had known abuse was going on.“When we look and debrief cases like Nia Glassie, Kahui twins, we know that within the family environment there are people there that know the offending or abuse is taking place,” he said.Mr Beecroft supports the idea of paying informants.“With proper safeguards to those serious situations who could be against it if it saves the life of a child?” he said.But the former Youth Court judge concedes people could abuse the system.“Complaints could be made for money. They could be trumped up complaints, they could be half truths used to further the interests of a party.

Should parents lose custody of super-obese kids?.

first_img Share Should parents of extremely obese children lose custody for not controlling their kids’ weight? A provocative commentary in one of the nation’s most distinguished medical journals argues yes, and its authors are joining a quiet chorus of advocates who say the government should be allowed to intervene in extreme cases.It has happened a few times in the U.S., and the opinion piece in Wednesday’s Journal of the American Medical Association says putting children temporarily in foster care is in some cases more ethical than obesity surgery.Dr. David Ludwig, an obesity specialist at Harvard-affiliated Children’s Hospital Boston, said the point isn’t to blame parents, but rather to act in children’s best interest and get them help that for whatever reason their parents can’t provide.State intervention “ideally will support not just the child but the whole family, with the goal of reuniting child and family as soon as possible. That may require instruction on parenting,” said Ludwig, who wrote the article with Lindsey Murtagh, a lawyer and a researcher at Harvard’s School of Public Health.“Despite the discomfort posed by state intervention, it may sometimes be necessary to protect a child,” Murtagh said.But University of Pennsylvania bioethicist Art Caplan said he worries that the debate risks putting too much blame on parents. Obese children are victims of advertising, marketing, peer pressure and bullying — things a parent can’t control, he said.“If you’re going to change a child’s weight, you’re going to have to change all of them,” Caplan said.Roughly 2 million U.S. children are extremely obese. Most are not in imminent danger, Ludwig said. But some have obesity-related conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, breathing difficulties and liver problems that could kill them by age 30. It is these kids for whom state intervention, including education, parent training, and temporary protective custody in the most extreme cases, should be considered, Ludwig said.While some doctors promote weight-loss surgery for severely obese teens, Ludwig said it hasn’t been used for very long in adolescents and can have serious, sometimes life-threatening complications.“We don’t know the long-term safety and effectiveness of these procedures done at an early age,” he said.Ludwig said he starting thinking about the issue after a 90-pound 3-year-old girl came to his obesity clinic several years ago. Her parents had physical disabilities, little money and difficulty controlling her weight. Last year, at age 12, she weighed 400 pounds and had developed diabetes, cholesterol problems, high blood pressure and sleep apnea.“Out of medical concern, the state placed this girl in foster care, where she simply received three balanced meals a day and a snack or two and moderate physical activity,” he said. After a year, she lost 130 pounds. Though she is still obese, her diabetes and apnea disappeared; she remains in foster care, he said.In a commentary in the medical journal BMJ last year, London pediatrician Dr. Russell Viner and colleagues said obesity was a factor in several child protection cases in Britain. They argued that child protection services should be considered if parents are neglectful or actively reject efforts to control an extremely obese child’s weight.A 2009 opinion article in Pediatrics made similar arguments. Its authors said temporary removal from the home would be warranted “when all reasonable alternative options have been exhausted.”That piece discussed a 440-pound 16-year-old girl who developed breathing problems from excess weight and nearly died at a University of Wisconsin hospital. Doctors discussed whether to report her family for neglect. But they didn’t need to, because her medical crisis “was a wake-up call” for her family, and the girl ended up losing about 100 pounds, said co-author Dr. Norman Fost, a medical ethicist at the university’s Madison campus.How to tell if your child is at risk for obesityState intervention in obesity “doesn’t necessarily involve new legal requirements,” Ludwig said. Health care providers are required to report children who are at immediate risk, and that can be for a variety of reasons, including neglect, abuse and what doctors call “failure to thrive.” That’s when children are severely underweight.Jerri Gray, a Greenville, S.C., single mother who lost custody of her 555-pound 14-year-old son two years ago, said authorities don’t understand the challenges families may face in trying to control their kids’ weight.“I was always working two jobs so we wouldn’t end up living in ghettos,” Gray said. She said she often didn’t have time to cook, so she would buy her son fast food. She said she asked doctors for help for her son’s big appetite but was accused of neglect.Her sister has custody of the boy, now 16. The sister has the money to help him with a special diet and exercise, and the boy has lost more than 200 pounds, Gray said.“Even though good has come out of this as far as him losing weight, he told me just last week, ‘Mommy, I want to be back with you so bad.’ They’ve done damage by pulling us apart,” Gray said.Stormy Bradley, an Atlanta mother whose overweight 14-year-old daughter is participating in a Georgia advocacy group’s “Stop Childhood Obesity” campaign, said she sympathizes with families facing legal action because of their kids’ weight.Healthier food often costs more, and trying to monitor kids’ weight can be difficult, especially when they reach their teens and shun parental control, Bradley said. But taking youngsters away from their parents “definitely seems too extreme,” she said.Dr. Lainie Ross, a medical ethicist at the University of Chicago, said: “There’s a stigma with state intervention. We just have to do it with caution and humility and make sure we really can say that our interventions are going to do more good than harm.”By:  Lindsey TannerYahoo Shine 12 Views   no discussions HealthLifestyle Should parents lose custody of super-obese kids?. by: – July 19, 2011 Tweetcenter_img Share Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Bremen snatch play-off survival chance, champions Bayern rout Wolfsburg

first_img “I have experienced a few derbies, but I don’t care who we face. I just want to appeal to the fans to stay home to watch it,” added Kohfeldt, with games still behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic. A burst of goals from Osako, Milot Rashica and Niclas Fuellkrug – all in the space of eight minutes – had Werder 3-0 up at the break against Cologne at the Weserstadion. Former Everton midfielder Davy Klaassen then fired home a rebound just after the break before Osako, facing his old side, added his second and USA international Josh Sargent completed the rout. Dominick Drexler pulled a goal back for Cologne. Four-time Bundesliga champions Werder also needed a favour from Berlin and got one as Union beat Fortuna 3-0 with goals from Nigerian duo Anthony Ujah and Suleiman Abdullahi either side of veteran midfielder Christian Gentner’s effort. Bremen will find out their opponents on Sunday, with Heidenheim currently in the play-off place ahead of the final round of matches in the second division. – Hundred up for Bayern – At Wolfsburg, Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski scored a penalty for his 34th league goal of the season, finishing as the top scorer for the fifth time. Robert Lewandowski in action for champions Bayern Munich in their 4-0 win at Wolfsburg on SaturdayKingsley Coman, Michael Cuisance and Thomas Mueller also got on the scoresheet as Bayern, champions for the eighth straight season, finished 13 points clear of second-placed Borussia Dortmund following a 4-0 win.Mueller set up Coman for Bayern’s opening goal to finish the campaign with a league record 21 assists, and his goal that rounded out the win was also Bayern’s 100th league goal this season – one short of the Bundesliga record.“I am proud of the way we have played over the past few months,” said Bayern coach Hansi Flick, who has won 28 of his first 31 games in charge.Flick also hailed the efforts made to ensure the Bundesliga became the first top European league to resume following the coronavirus lockdown.“The Bundesliga has led the way in Europe, which was an outstanding achievement,” added Flick. “In this respect, this is a very special championship for us.”– Gladbach into Champions League –Gladbach celebrate clinching the fourth and final Champions League placeMeanwhile, Borussia Moenchengladbach and RB Leipzig secured qualification for next season’s Champions League after 2-1 wins over Hertha Berlin and Augsburg respectively, as fifth-placed Bayer Leverkusen missed out by two points despite beating Mainz 1-0.Dortmund, who had already wrapped up second place, crashed to a 4-0 home defeat by Hoffenheim, for whom Croatia striker Andrej Kramaric scored all four goals, including a no-look penalty.That result allowed Hoffenheim to leapfrog Wolfsburg and take sixth place, although both sides will go into the Europa League next season along with Leverkusen.Before kick-off in Dortmund, Mario Goetze, who scored Germany’s winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final, was given a send-off by the club with his contract expiring this month.Elsewhere, Timo Werner signed off with a brace in RB Leipzig’s 2-1 win at Augsburg in what was his final appearance for the club before moving to Chelsea.Read Also: Video: Liverpool stars wildly celebrate first ever EPL title winSchalke’s disastrous second half of the season was completed with a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Freiburg as they finished the season 12th, having been third in December.Eintracht Frankfurt beat bottom side Paderborn 3-2 in Saturday’s other game.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Promoted ContentThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s Hysterical10 Hyper-Realistic 3D Street Art By OdeithMind-Bending Technology That Was Predicted Before It AppearedHere Are The Best Movies Since 1982 You Should Definitely SeeThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Bancroft guides Australia A to tight win

first_imgCAMERON Bancroft’s patient 58* helped Australia A seal their nervy chase of 159 to beat India A by three wickets on the final day of the first unofficial Test in Brisbane.Wet ground conditions delayed the start of the fourth day for almost three hours, but Australia A knocked off the 100 runs required in 35.3 overs to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.(Final scores:Australia A 228 (Handscomb 87, Burns 78, Aaron 3-41) and 7 for 161 (Bancroft 58*, Thakur 3-42) beat India A 230 (Pandey 77, Fazal 48, Swepson 4-78) and 156 (Yadav 46, Sayers 3-21) by three wickets)Australia’s chase looked rather comfortable when overnight batsmen Bancroft and Beau Webster added 57 for the fifth wicket.

Baldwinsville field hockey shut out by C-NS again

first_imgWithout any rest, B’ville would host defending sectional Class B champion Holland Patent 24 hours later, and again the Bees were shut out, this time 2-0 by the Golden Knights.Neither side got on the board in the first half. Vredenburg was sensational, recording 14 saves, but HP got to her in the second half as Haley Acevedo and Maja Helmer earned the goals, with Maggie Cummings adding an assist. The Bees were held to just three shots.Following Monday’s game against visiting Liverpool, the Bees (5-6)  would get a much-need respite, not playing again for more than a week before hosting East Syracuse Minoa on Oct. 8. Tags: Baldwinsvillefield hockey Through 10 games, the Baldwinsville field hockey team only had a mark of 5-5, in large part because it struggled to produce goes against familiar opposition.And no one has frustrated the Bees more than defending Section III Class A champion Cicero-North Syracuse, who again topped B’ville 1-0 when these sides met last Thursday night at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium.Three weeks earlier, it had gone to overtime at Bragman Stadium, with the Bees robbed early in the extra period by Northstars goalie Allie Wagner and then seeing C-NS put in the game-winning goal a few minutes later. Here, the decisive tally came early. The Northstars applied pressure and then saw freshman forward Christina Wagner take a pass from Emily Colgiovanni and direct a shot past Bees goalie Claire Vredenburg.From there, B’ville kept the Northstars quiet, Vredenburg earning six saves, and had plenty of its own opportunities to get in front.However, C-NS’s defense turned them all away and Ally Wagner, constantly challenged, came up with nine total saves to earn the shutout.

Nicky Galasso, Syracuse defense pace better start in win over UNC

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 25, 2015 at 1:08 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman CHESTER, Pa. – Kevin Rice knew Syracuse had a reputation of coming out slow on the road.In its three games away from the Carrier Dome this season, the Orange trailed 4-0 against St. Johns, faced a 9-3 deficit against Notre Dame and fell behind 5-0 against North Carolina.But on Friday night, albeit not by the margin it’s found itself on the other side of, the Orange scored the first two goals and never trailed by more than one in the first half.“We talked about it all week, that the book on us is sort of that we can’t play well early on the road,” Rice said. “We wanted to answer those critics a little bit.”Syracuse was paced in the first half by a Nicky Galasso hat trick and entered halftime tied at five, a stark contrast from the four-goal deficit it found itself in at the break two weeks ago in North Carolina. The improved start wasn’t anything that blew the game open early, but rather something that prevented the third-seeded Orange (10-2, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) from having to dig out of a hole against the second-seeded Tar Heels (12-3, 3-1) in a 9-8 win at PPL Park in the ACC tournament semifinals.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd whether it was Galasso’s hot start or SU’s defense silencing Chad Tutton, Jimmy Bitter and Joey Sankey at the onset, the Orange rode it early to advance and face fourth-seeded Duke in the finals on Sunday.“Nicky played awesome. He got like two or three goals right off the bat there, he really sparked their offense,” Tutton said. “We had a bit of a slow start and just look at the first three goals of the game, guys who aren’t normally scoring goals.“I put that onus on us, specifically me, Joey and Jimmy, we’ve got to do a better job of getting our offense started early.”Just more than a minute into the game, Galasso received a pass from Randy Staats almost horizontal to the goal on the right side of the crease. He sharply planted with his left foot and cut past Jake Matthai before slotting one through goalie Kieran Burke’s legs.Then as two defenders collapsed on Dylan Donahue, Galasso cut through the middle, received a pass and fired a right-handed shot past Burke for a 2-0 lead before throwing both his hands straight up in the air.“It’s up to the individual to make plays,” UNC head coach Joe Breschi said. “… and Nicky made plays for them.”In the second quarter, Wardwell made back-to-back saves on Bitter and Sankey, with his knees and in between his legs, respectively, in just one of the instances SU kept the nation’s highest-scoring duo at bay.On the ESPNU broadcast at halftime, John Desko credited Galasso’s comfort level against his former team for his early success. He also praised his defense for defending against UNC’s picks early, which helped silence Bitter and Sankey.And though North Carolina was able to come back from a three-goal deficit to tie the game in the second half and Galasso was held without a goal or assist, Syracuse did enough early on to set itself up for an easier road to the finals.“Nicky always loves playing against Carolina,” Rice said. “He really took it to them early which helped settle everyone in.” Commentslast_img read more

Dixon beats Sato at Gateway in reverse finish of Indy 500

first_img Associated Press Television News First Published: 30th August, 2020 07:05 IST COMMENT LIVE TV Written By Last Updated: 30th August, 2020 07:05 IST Dixon Beats Sato At Gateway In Reverse Finish Of Indy 500 Scott Dixon and Takuma Sato repeated their 20-lap shootout from the Indianapolis 500 a week ago, with Dixon reversing the finishing order Saturday by winning at World Wide Technology Raceway outside of St. Louiscenter_img SUBSCRIBE TO US WATCH US LIVE Scott Dixon and Takuma Sato repeated their 20-lap shootout from the Indianapolis 500 a week ago, with Dixon reversing the finishing order Saturday by winning at World Wide Technology Raceway outside of St. Louis.Sato held off Dixon last Sunday for his second Indy 500 victory in four years. Dixon had 20 laps to chase Sato down, but a late caution ended the race under yellow.At Gateway, Dixon took the lead by first beating Pato O’Ward out of the pits and then cycled to the front when Sato made his stop with 25 laps remaining. Sato returned to the track in third, passed O’Ward with a bold outside move then set his sights on Dixon.Dixon had 20 laps to navigate lapped traffic while holding off Sato.“Sato was coming on strong at the end,” Dixon said. “I didn’t realize how strong he was coming. We were in reserve mode to look out for the engine and he was coming with a head of steam.”Dixon beat Sato by 0.1404 seconds for his fourth win of the season and 50th overall and praised his Chip Ganassi Racing team. The New Zealander led 111 of 200 laps at Indy but couldn’t catch Sato in the closing laps before the caution froze the field.“Last week at Indianapolis was a bit of a bummer,” Dixon admitted.Dixon moved within two victories of Mario Andretti on IndyCar’s victory list. Andretti is second with 52; A.J. Foyt is the leader at 67.“I’m very lucky and very fortunate,” the 40-year-old New Zealander said. “It’s not just me, it’s the team. I’m very fortunate to work with these guys. It’s them. Fifty is a great number and I’d like to think there’s 50 more.”Dixon holds a 117-point lead in the IndyCar championship standings as he chases a fifth title. IndyCar races again Sunday at Gateway.“That was a textbook Scott Dixon race. Steady, one at a time, here, there, nothing fancy,” said winning team owner Ganassi.Sato finished second for a 1-2 sweep for Honda. O’Ward, the highest finishing rookie in last week’s 500, was third for Arrow McLaren SP in a Chevrolet.O’Ward led a race-high 94 laps, moved to the front on Lap 68 and held it until he and Dixon pitted on Lap 162.“Towards the end Dixon got us in the pits,” O’Ward said. “We didn’t have enough pace to get up and pass him. I just couldn’t keep up.”Sato was attempting to become the first driver since Arie Luyendyk in 1997 to win the race immediately following the Indy 500.“Since last week we carried a lot of momentum,” said Sato of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. “The boys did a fantastic job two weeks in a row, I’m very proud of them.”Sato also used a bold outside pass on O’Ward and although the cars never touched — O’Ward initially thought there was contact — the close proximity caused O’Ward to wiggle.“It was nothing risky at all,” Sato said. “We were just able to have a go because Dixon was running away with it. We had fresher tire and I think they helped. I gave him enough room. It was tight.”The race got off to a rocky start with a multi-car accident when the green flag waved. Alex Palou and Oliver Askew, both rookies, were penalized by IndyCar for triggering a crash that knocked out three cars from Andretti Autosport.Alexander Rossi, still seeking his first win of the season in a horrible year for the perennial title contender, was collected with teammates Marco Andretti and Zach Veach. It also ended the race for Ed Carpenter and Simon Pagenaud eventually had to retire with damage to his car.“I was driving straight. I don’t know what you want me to say,” said Rossi, who likened the incident to an iRacing video race.Image credits: AP FOLLOW USlast_img read more

first_imgPhoto credit: Grace Foods KINGSTON, Jamaica – Even during the current pandemic, Jamaicans and members of the diaspora have been sticking to the annual tradition of eating bun and cheese during the Easter season.A week or two before Good Friday, the shelves of supermarkets and smaller stores are stacked with bun and tin cheese as residents begin to purchase in bulk, in preparation for the holidays. Those abroad also search high and low for Jamaican shops and stores that possibly supply “Easter bun”. But while Jamaicans enjoy this delicacy every year, not many people are aware of how the tradition even began.Eating Bun and Cheese was originally a British tradition in the United Kingdom during the 1600 and 1700s. In the UK, small, round, and slightly sweet buns, called hot cross buns, were made with a cross cut into the tops.Hot Cross BunSale and consumption of the buns were supposedly forbidden in England, except during specific times, one of which was Good Friday. The cross came to symbolise the crucifixion of Jesus. The Hot Cross Buns nursery rhyme was thought to be used by pedlars announcing their selling of the treats. Many grew up singing the nursery rhyme in Jamaica:Hot cross buns!Hot cross buns!One a penny, two a penny,Hot cross buns!If you have no daughters,Give them to your sons.One a penny two a penny,Hot cross buns!The nursery rhyme and the buns made their way to Jamaica via the British, who carried their traditions with them when they colonised the island in the mid-1600s. Over time, Jamaicans of course, put their spin on the custom.Variations of the hot cross bun were made and old in Jamaica, with the same tradition of eating it during Easter. Eventually, like with many other baked staple goods, Jamaicans added cheese into the mix and began the tradition of a bun and cheese sandwich.Although bun and cheese is sold all year long, there is a spike in sales during Easter because of the tradition. Whether home or abroad, if you visit any Jamaican’s home during Easter, it is very likely that you will find bun and cheese.last_img read more

Pirates injury update: Starling Marte, Erik Gonzalez head to IL after violent collision

first_imgIt’s a big blow to the Pirates (11-6), who began Saturday in first place in the NL Central, one game ahead of the Brewers. The loss of Marte, a 2016 All-Star and two-time Gold Glove winner, is especially tough for a team already dealing with the loss of three of their top four outfielders. Right fielder Gregory Polanco (shoulder), who hasn’t played this season, has appeared in four rehab games with Triple-A Indianapolis. Outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall (fractured finger), who also has yet to play this year, began his assignment on Friday. Left fielder Corey Dickerson (strained shoulder) has not made an appearance since April 3.To fill Gonzalez and Marte’s spots, the Pirates recalled shortstop Cole Tucker and selected outfielder Bryan Reynolds from Indianapolis. The Pirates lost starting center fielder Starling Marte and shortstop Erik Gonzalez to the IL Saturday, a day after a violent collision shook both players in a win over the Giants.Both players were chasing a shallow popup by Yangervis Solarte in the eighth inning when they collided at full speed in shallow center. The two players remained down on the grass for several minutes. Gonzalez walked off the field under his own power, while Marte left sitting in a cart. The Pirates announced Gonzalez has been diagnosed with a fractured left clavicle and was placed on the 60-day DL. Marte was placed on the 10-day IL with a chest wall contusion.“It’s unfortunate. You hate to see your men laying on the field,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said after Friday’s game.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNlast_img read more

Hardships abound as hucksters feel pressured

first_imgIncreased feesBy Romario SamarooIn light of the increased cost hucksters have to pay for their licences, these street sellers are complaining about difficulties they are faced with to comply with the new requirements.After the move by the Administration to revise the tax laws, hucksters are forced to pay an enormous increase for their licences.According to the Hucksters Licensing and Control Amendment Bill No. 9 of 2016, hucksters plying their trade via “foot or man propelled vehicle or cycle” will pay $3500 signalling an increase of 12.5 times the amount.Those carrying out their business by means of “horse or other beast bearing or drawing burden” must now pay $12,500 rather than the $1000 previously paid. A number of vendors affected by this increase spoke at length of the strain it had posed on them.Annoyed vendors flocked to share their views on this issue with Guyana Times.Frankie, a fruit trader at Bourda Market said he feels the new fees are a burden to small vendors like himself: “It can’t work out if I got to pay that plus $1000 a day to sell out here, wen yuh wuk it out yuh wuk fa mine dem.” He reiterated the ever-so-often produce is so cheap and that “is best I close down”.Cheryll, another Bourda Market huckster pointed out that she is a single mother who is struggling to make ends meet: “I am a single mother of four and I got to pay all these taxes; what is the point?” she further said “money barely circulating”.Another single mother Patricia added that she cannot afford to pay the increased fees: “I sells from Friday to Monday, i can’t afford to pay these taxes. I ga pay lesson fees,” she lamented.Similarly, Tony is asserting his position not to pay because “they not taking care of de place and gat to pay all dese taxes.” He subsequently pointed out that “wholesale farmers would usually pay $3000 to distribute on the parapet.”Sherry also expressed her disapproval saying, “if I got to pay all of this I going an do domestic work”West Bank vendors also expressed their opinion on the increased licenses fees. Tony said he has a child attending University of Guyana and it is very difficult for him to pay the increase: “Dem prices too high, but small man na gat a say. I got to send me child UG and and all dem fee raise. They (the government) feel because we selling out here we does mek nuff money.”Savitiri said she has been selling the same load for the week because “business slow.” She went on to say, “I got to pay $4500 ‘landing fee’ for me Canter and now this”Arif also pointed out he does not sell $3500 a day and still has to pay “$1000 a day” to sell there, in addition to “$300 per pallet” of which she has four.Visiting Lombard Street now known for its horse-drawn vehicles, Guyana Times met with a few men plying their trade. In conversations, the men spoke of their unwillingness to comply with this increase due to the fact that “business on a whole was slow” and it is hard to meet that money. They went on to further point out that their “family is the main priority”Hucksters traversing the various markets and selling to individual shops using motor vehicles will pay an additional $57,500 on the former $5000 totalling $62,500 for the licence.When asked about this, one driver complained about “the other expenses I have to face already and now this” and noted “parts expensive, shop owners complaining dem ain’t gat money and now de government want we pay more”Vishal wanted to ask the government “why they don’t go tax all de drug yards than pressure legal workers?”These issues come in light of the already established difficulty the administration faces with tax collection. Vendors are calling for the revised legislation to be reconsidered.last_img read more

Communist life goes on for Elian Gonzalez

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Now Elian is stepping back into the spotlight, speaking publicly to crowds and to an American news network for the first time since his return to Cuba. Cuban exiles in Miami opposed to Fidel Castro‘s government say the island’s leader is using the boy as a pawn. Castro supporters say Elian was saved from what they call “the Miami mafia” and is lucky to live under Cuba’s socialist system. In Cardenas, 85 miles east of Havana, the perspective is less political. “I can’t say if he’s better off living here or in Miami,” said Antonio Macias, 49, an outdoor cafe manager. “But it does seem like a good thing to me that he’s here with his family.” A 17-year-old student walking with friends agreed. “He’s where he should be,” said Jorge Luis Rodriguez, who plans to become an electrician. “I think he’s happy.” Elian lives with his father, stepmother and younger half-siblings in a home protected from the press by security guards. Authorities also keep journalists from Elian’s classroom at a middle school where children in mustard-color uniforms walk between two-story, blue-and-white buildings on a cozy open-air campus. The school’s director said Elian’s teachers were unavailable for comment. A man who appeared to be another security guard, but identified himself as a gym teacher, told The Associated Press that the boy is a top student and passionate about karate. But while Elian has been sheltered in Cardenas, with Cuban officials saying they want him to have as normal a life as possible, he has been paraded at official events, often sitting in the front row next to his father Juan Miguel, now a Cuban lawmaker. His visibility increased this year. In April, he gave a speech before thousands at a televised event that commemorated the fifth anniversary of his being snatched from his Miami relatives’ home by armed U.S. federal agents. It was his first public address open to the foreign press, and he thanked Cubans and Americans for fighting for his return to the island. “This is a boy who really had no best option,” said Damian Fernandez, director of the Cuban Research Institute at Miami’s Florida International University. “For him there’s no happy ending on either side of the Florida Straits.” Fernandez, a Cuban-American, said he believes the island’s government will keep using Elian as a “symbol that can still rally Cuban nationalism.” But the boy, Fernandez said, is also at the age when Cuban children start questioning the system. “We’ll have to see Elian at 15,” he said. – Associated Press160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The 11-year-old celebrity lives at the end of the city’s main street, near an old stone fort converted into a cafe. He is Elian Gonzalez, the castaway who came to symbolize the divide between Miami and Havana.

Rupinder Pal Singh’s double in vain as India lose to Australia 2-3

first_imgDespite drag-flick specialist Rupinder Pal Singh scoring twice, India went down fighting 2-3 against Australia in a tense finish at the Four Nations Invitational Hockey Tournament here on Wednesday.Rupinder Pal Singh converted two penalty corners in the 21st and 53rd minutes but Australia emerged winners with goals from Jeremy Hayward (24th and 36th) and Trent Mitton (43rd).The Indian side began positively against the top-ranked Australia, showing positive intent and energy in the first quarter as they looked to better their record against their opponents.However, the first 15 minutes ended with a 0-0 score line as both teams kept searching for goal-scoring opportunities. Indian youngster Affan Yousuf’s attacking approach almost paid dividends early on had it not been for a solid defence from the Kookaburras.A high-voltage encounter in the offing, India, who had recently won the Asian Champions Trophy in Malaysia, managed to gain three successive penalty corners in the second quarter of the match.The team’s bankable drag-flicker, Rupinder missed out on the first two opportunities, but did not disappoint the third time around as his powerful and precise hit went past Australian goalkeeper Tristan Clemons in the 21st minute to give India the lead.However, the drama intensified as Hayward scored the equaliser three minutes later, using his drag-flicking skills to beat a diving Akash Chikte. At half-time, the game was beautifully poised at 1-1. (‘Proud’ Roelant Oltmans wants Indian hockey team to win bigger global tournaments)India had a tough time in the third quarter as the Australians scored two more goals to take the lead to 3-1. Hayward scored his second penalty corner goal in the 36th minute and Mitton scored his team’s third off a difficult angle in the 43rd minute.advertisementHowever, the Indians did not give up easily as they entered the final quarter. Talwinder Singh lifted the spirits in the camp with a superb counter-attacking approach initially and then it was goalkeeper Chikte’s miraculous save of a powerful hit from Dylan Wotherspoon.Rupinder brought India back in the game with a successful penalty corner conversion in the 53rd minute as India headed into the tense last minutes of the match. (World Cup should be India’s next target, say hockey legends after Asian Champions Trophy triumph)However, the Australians denied India any further chance to score an equaliser as the visitors conceded a 2-3 defeat.India will next play Malaysia on Thursday.last_img read more

Leicester City crash helicopter rotor pedals failed: probe

first_imgLondon, Dec 6 (AFP) Disconnected cockpit pedals caused the helicopter crashed that killed the Thai billionaire owner of Leicester City football club and four others on October 28, a British investigation found on Thursday. The death of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha shocked global sport and left the small city in the heart of England in mourning two years after their improbable first and only championship season. The helicopter, decorated the blue and white colours of the team, spun out of control on takeoff moments after it cleared the stadium’s roof. Vichai attended most Leicester home matches, landing and taking off from the centre of the pitch. Britain’s Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) said a series of cockpit pedals had somehow become disconnected from the rotor on the helicopter’s tail. “The loss of control of the helicopter resulted from the tail rotor actuator control shaft becoming disconnected from the actuator lever mechanism,” the eight-page AAIB report said. The helicopter began to spin uncontrollably to the right as a result. The AAIB said it was treating a further probe into what caused the pedals to disconnect “as a priority”. Europe’s aviation safety authorities have ordered mandatory checks on the type of helicopter involved, finding no other problems to date. (AFP) SMJSMJlast_img read more

How will El Tri line up against Martinique?

first_imgUPDATE: Raul Jimenez, Andres Guarado and Edson Alvarez start as Mexico makes six changesMexico isn’t technically into the Gold Cup knockout stages yet, but barring the most stunning upset in Gold Cup history it should be there soon.Martinique doesn’t present the same sort of challenge Canada did, and even that challenge was one Mexico overcame in a 3-1 victory during the week. Mexico manager Tata Martino likely is looking for his team to be fresh ahead of the knockout stages and should give rest to some key components of his squad. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? He also has a team nearly at full fitness, with midfielder Erick Gutierrez the only player ruled out of Sunday’s Group A finale. That could mean the first minutes of the Gold Cup for attacker Rodolfo Pizarro and center back Hector Moreno, each of whom were carrying knocks that kept them out of wins over Cuba and Canada.As we do before each match, Goal has put together three projections for a possible starting XI. Check back an hour before the game to see what Martino decides!A last-game refreshGFX MX refreshThis is the lineup Martino is most likely to utilize. It features seven changes from his team that beat Canada.Essentially, this would give everyone a rest except for the players who really have no back-up. So, Jesus Gallardo gets the start at left back because there’s really no other left back. Same with Andres Guardado at left interior midfielder after the injury to Erick Gutierrez, Raul Jimenez up top as the team’s best No. 9 and Roberto Alvarado with him as one of the wingers.Other than those ‘irreplaceables’, everyone is getting a refresh. That even extends to Guillermo Ochoa, the No.1 goalkeeper. He’ll be in goal for the knockout rounds, but look for Santos Laguna goalkeeper Jonathan Orozco to get the nod Sunday.At right back, Fernando Navarro could replace Luis “Chaka” Rodriguez and make his Mexico debut at a major tournament. In the middle, it would be Hector Moreno, getting minutes for the first time after his pre-tournament injury, and young Monterrey center back Cesar Montes. Nestor Araujo and Diego Reyes would get a breather, and Carlos Salcedo could have another game not to put stress on his knee, which has been bothering the Tigres center back.Edson Alvarez is an interesting one, since he only returned to the starting XI last week. But the rest for Reyes may be more valuable, as would Alvarez seeing more time in a central midfield role where he has excelled but has not played as often as other positions during his career. Guardado is to his left with Carlos Rodriguez on the right, with he and Jonathan dos Santos continuing to alternate starts at that spot.Up top, a fit Rodolfo Pizarro gets his first minutes of the tournament, putting El Tri’s top attacking trio together for the first time in the Gold Cup.Playing it saferGFX MX SafeThis is the same lineup as above, but rather than risking players who came in with a knock, they are given more time to recover. Of course, Martino may want to give those players minutes so they can get into a good rhythm ahead of the most important matches in the tournament. If it’s too soon for them to come in, though, Mexico could utilize a look like this.Uriel Antuna has made the most of his opportunity replacing Pizarro, with a hat trick against Cuba in the first game and an assist against Canada in the second. Even if he does not start in the business end of the tournament, he would give Martino an option against Martinique.This also would see Hector Moreno given a break as well. It is probably up to him and what the medical staff has told Martino about his knock. Moreno has played in Europe for more than a decade. He does not necessarily need the burn against Martinique, but if he wants to play to get ready, Martino will be happy for the left-footer to come in. If not, Nestor Araujo gets the nod once again.Stick with what you knowGFX MX no changeI have a hunch this is not the XI Martino will go with. He has shown a willingness to give chances to players like Navarro, who perhaps are a bit behind others on the roster but are still looking to compete for a spot. The reward is minutes in matches that still matter but may not stretch Mexico as much as a game like Canada. Martinique fits the bill.That said, this would be the same lineup Martino used against Canada, with Guardado in for Guti. If Martino believes the best way to get through the tournament is by not making any modifications, this would be his XI.last_img read more

More Than Me Charity Gala To Help Girls In Liberia

To date, it’s served over 200 girls and now has the official support of the Liberian government.Referred to as “The most passionate person we’ve ever met!” by Bono’s ONE Foundation, a “Social Media Role-Model” at a United Nations conference on technology, Katie was recently honored with “Outstanding Woman of the Year” by the NJ Commission (where she was born into a crack house – see below) and also just received recognition from the Boy Scouts of America luncheon as this year’s Extraordinary Women.Katie’s earliest memory is waking up next in her family’s one bedroom apartment next to her uncle who had died that night from a drug overdose. Her early life was filled with adversity and solitude, but Katie was driven to create a better future for herself and become a voice for children who are silenced by poverty, hunger and slavery. It was an unexpected trip to Liberia with the United Nations that solidified her next step – founding an organization with a simple call – creating a life that is about “More Than Me”.Find out more here.last_img read more

Denmark Suspects Murders of Scandinavian Tourists Are Linked to ISIS

Rabat – Although ISIS has not claimed credit for the murder of two tourists from Norway and Denmark in Morocco, Danish officials said that the motive for the murders may have been terrorism, inspired by ISIS.The bodies of 24-year-old Louisa Vesterager Jespersen from Denmark and 28-year-old Maren Ueland from Norway were recovered on Monday, December 17, in an isolated, mountainous area.On Thursday, Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said in a press conference, “Much now indicates that the killings could be politically motivated and thus a terrorist act.” ‘We must never give in’Rasmussen added, “There are still dark forces out there who will try to fight our values with violence, threaten our society, and the way we live our lives.”Expressing frustration, the prime minister said, “It makes me angry but also more firm that we never must give in or give way.”Rasmussen also commented on a video that has gone  viral on social media showing Moroccan men slicing the throat of a foreign woman.Read Also: 2019 Travel Risk Map: Morocco As Safe As European Countries, US, CanadaThe video records two voices. One of the men in the video was crying: “This is a revenge for our brothers in Hajin,” referring to a small town in eastern Syria that was ISIS’ last holdout.“There is a video going around on social media, but its authenticity is still not verified,” Rasmussen said.Locals have said that the video is not related to the murder, but the public prosecutor at Rabat’s Court of Appeal said that Moroccan security services are still checking its authenticity.ISIS has been shifting its strategy from explosive bombings to stabbing and vehicle-ramming attacks. The strategy is defined as “ISIS’ lone-wolf.” ISIS started using the strategy as its territory in Iraq and Syria shrank.In recent years, ISIS has been carrying several attacks, using knives and vehicles to run over people deliberately.A statement from a public prosecutor at Rabat’s Court of Appeals confirmed that the first suspect, arrested Tuesday, belongs to a “radicalized” group.Morocco’s Central Bureau of Judicial Investigation (BCIJ) announced the arrest of three more suspects on Thursday morning.Danish journalist Stine Delfs told Morocco World News that Danish security services are now investigating the murder as an act of terror.She added that police informed the victims’ relatives of the new development.Norwegian Ambassador to Morocco Merethe Nergaard arrived in Marrakech yesterday to follow the case closely. In an interview with VG, the ambassador described the crime as “dramatic.” “It is a very tragic case,” she said.An experienced Norwegian policeman working in Norway’s embassy in Rabat traveled to Marrakech to investigate the case. The diplomat, however, denied that there are Norwegian investigators contributing to the investigation.“This is an investigation carried out by the Moroccan authorities,” she said.She added that the mission of the Norwegian embassy is to provide consular assistance to the relatives of the victims.Read Also: ‘Morocco a Safe Country,’ Diplomatic Source Says Amid Investigations into Tourists’ MurdersMorocco World News attempted to reach both embassies for further details, but their hotlines were unreachable.The murders came as a shock because Morocco is considered a safe travel destination for local and international tourists, according to the recent 2019 Travel Risk Map. read more

Metro supermarket buying majority stake in Quebec bakery Premiere Moisson

MONTREAL – Supermarket chain Metro is buying a majority stake in leading Quebec bakery Premiere Moisson to fuel the family run company’s expansion while adding to its own product offering in a competitive market.The Colpron-Fiset family, which founded the bakery in 1992, will retain 25 per cent of the company and continue to manage its 23 stores and three production plants. The purchase price wasn’t disclosed.“For Metro, it’s a strategic partnership because it will help us to differentiate our banners with fresh and quality products,” Metro CEO Eric La Fleche said Tuesday at a news conference at Premiere Moisson’s Atwater Market bakery.Montreal-based Metro (TSX:MRU) said the partnership is set to close in a few weeks and will expand a relationship that has grown over more than 20 years. About 20 per cent of Premiere Moisson’s $100 million of annual sales are to Metro, including as a baker for some of its private label bread.Metro plans to help finance the expansion of Premiere Moisson’s premium artisan brands throughout Quebec and eventually across Ontario. In addition to crusty baguettes and other bread, Premiere Moisson sells premium cakes and pastries, gluten-free products, deli items and various ready-to-eat dishes.The partners hope to more than double the number of retail stores by adding bakeries in other parts of the province before focusing on Ontario, where it has one store.It’s a partnership model that Metro used in 2011 to acquire a majority stake in ethnic grocer Adonis, which has begun to add locations in Toronto.Canada’s third-largest supermarket chain is in tough competition with Loblaw (TSX:L), Sobey’s (TSX:EMP.A) and Costco, while its discount banners fend off U.S. banners Wal-Mart and Target.Premiere Moisson president Liliane Colpron said the partnership with Quebec’s leading food chain allows the company to make the leap from a family business to one that can reach more customers.“We needed a strategic partner to accelerate growth,” she told reporters, accompanied by her three children who will continue to run the business.Colpron insisted that Premiere Moisson won’t alter its artisan approach using quality local wheat and ingredients.“We aren’t changing a winning formula.”La Fleche said that’s part of what attracted Metro to the bakery, adding there will be no change to Premiere Moisson’s “winning recipe.”In addition to adding retail stores, the partners will consider other options, including setting up Premiere Moisson kiosks in Metro stores.The bakery has 22 locations in Greater Montreal and one in Ottawa, and sells its bread in grocery stores in both provinces. Existing agreements selling bread to grocery rivals will continue to be respected.Premiere Moisson also owns a 50 per cent stake in Les Moulins de Soulanges, a local producer of natural, premium-quality bread flours and other specialty flours adapted to the needs of artisan-style bakeries.Analyst Irene Nattel of RBC Capital Markets said the partnership makes sense but is relatively small for Metro.“The real upside in this kind of transaction is less in the direct contribution of acquired stores and more in the value-added it can provide to the existing store offering/customer base,” she wrote in a report.Metro operates a network of almost 600 food stores under several banners including Metro, Metro Plus, Super C and Food Basics, as well as over 250 drugstores. It has annual sales of more than $11 billion and employs more than 65,000 people.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Metro’s shares were up 37 cents at $66.75 Tuesday afternoon.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 17, 2014 12:53 pm MDT Metro supermarket buying majority stake in Quebec bakery Premiere Moisson read more

Michael Heseltine I didnt think Margaret Thatcher was leadership material

He was Margaret Thatcher’s self-styled “assassin” who would eventually become the architect of her downfall. And 40 years after her election as prime minister, Michael Heseltine remains scathing in his assessment of the Iron Lady’s career and social background, describing how he found it “incredible” she was elected to lead the Conservative party in 1975 as “this was not a leader”. The outspoken Tory grandee is among a number of political heavyweights who contribute to a new five-part BBC series marking 40 years since Lady Thatcher was elected as Britain’s first female prime minister.

VELUX EHF Champs Lg Gorenje and Metalurg advance to L16 Pick Szeged

In the five games played today we saw two more teams qualify for the L16 phase. Metalurg had more trouble than expected at home against Chambery, however with the support of the crowd which was loud as always, managed to break Chambery’s resistance in the end and win with 26:21. Gorenje Velenje had another rather easy game against St Petersburg and with their physical superiority easily coped with the Russians and won by 7 goals, 32-25 victory in Chekhov.In Group D, Barcelona scored another routine victory, and easily beat Kadetten with 36:25, while perhaps in the most interesting game  Pick Szeged beat RK Zagreb at home with 26:24 and therefore took the 4th position at the moment after 7 games, and is on the pole-position for the 4th team to qualify ahead of the final 3 matches in the group.Celje were hoping to prepare another miracle as against THW, but Veszprem proved too strong and had the support of around 2000 Hungarian fans in Celje, and strengthened their lead on the table ahead of the THW-Atletico clash. Veszprem are now with 14 points, while THW and Atletico have 8 and 6 respectively. ← Previous Story Wisla Plock wins again over Sungul Snezhinsk, advances to group phase Next Story → ASOBAL (Round 12): Anaitasuna with a surprise win away at Cuenca!

Paisley and Robinson at Dundalk Courthouse in August 1986. Source: Eamonn FarrellThe incident was condemned by both the British and Irish governments. The official Northern Ireland Office report noted that Robinson appeared to have lingered behind deliberately. He had been held in custody for 32 hours, the report added, during which time “he refused all sustenance provided by the gardaí, preferring the wholesome Ulster food brought to him by his wife”.Robinson was later charged with four offences, the report said, “including assaulting gardaí and causing willful damage”. Bail was set at IR£10,000 in court the following day – double the amount expected by his lawyers.“The court sitting was timed to take place after the banks had shut and the judge then raised the bail,” Ian Paisley contended in a complaint later made to the British foreign office.“Dr Paisley claimed that this was a deliberate attempt to prevent Mr Robinson’s release from custody,” an official report on Paisley’s complaint said.He also pointed out that £10,000 sterling had been handed over and alleged that the Irish authorities had failed to keep their promise to repay the difference between the Sterling and Punt values. EVENTS OF THE past few weeks have done little to change the widely-held impression that politics in Northern Ireland seems to do little else but lurch from crisis to crisis – with the two sides retreating to their entrenched, tribal positions whenever disputes flare up.But a look-back at a bizarre event that kicked off months of controversy some thirty years ago underscores just how far politics in the North has come in the last few decades.The ‘Clontibret Affair’, as it came to be known, came to an end thirty years ago this month with a final appearance before the Special Criminal Court by Peter Robinson.The DUP politician accepted a charge of ‘unlawful assembly’ for his part in an incursion by some 150 loyalists into the Co Monaghan village the previous summer, along with a hefty fine.Robinson’s decision to take part in the invasion, during which gardaí were attacked and missiles thrown at buildings, almost derailed his political career.And although his boss and political mentor, Ian Paisley, gave full-throated support to his then-deputy throughout the controversy, the events of Clontibret became a bone of contention between the two men in later years – with Robinson challenging Paisley’s recollection of events just months before the latter’s death.What happened? The 1985 Anglo-Irish agreement, which for the first time gave Dublin an advisory role in the North, had been met with fury by the unionists (Paisley gave his famous “never, never, never…” speech to rally protesting the deal, attending by hundreds of thousands of people). Paisley addresses a rally at Belfast City Hall. Source: PA Archive/PA ImagesAfter almost a year of unrest, more protests and demonstrations had been called for the evening of 6-7 August 1986: one, it turned out, wasn’t scheduled to begin until the early hours of the morning, just a few miles from the border – on the southern side. An official’s note to the British ambassador, released years later, described how 150 loyalists, “some wearing paramilitary uniforms and carrying cudgels,” invaded Clontibret in the dead of night.Garda Frank Gallagher, recalling the events in court later, said he was woken by noise at around 1.35am, looked out his window and saw several cars, accompanied by people walking on both sides of the road.“They were lined up in fours out in the middle of the road there,” another garda, Jim Curran, told a reporter the next day.Someone was in command and they gave a command of ‘quick march’. They marched down the village and came back up again and stopped up at the cross here – and that’s when the patrol car and the army arrived.It later transpired that the RUC had tipped off gardaí about the expected events of the night – and armed Garda reinforcements arrived from Monaghan town within half an hour.Journalist Ed Moloney recounted what happened next in his biography of Ian Paisley: three Special Branch officers, armed with revolvers and Uzi submachine guns, arrived in an unmarked car – to find a line of men blocking the village’s main street.They reversed, before approaching again slowly – joined this time by two officers from a uniformed police patrol who drove their marked car ahead of the gardaí dispatched from Monaghan.As they approached the line of loyalists, Garda Leo O’Hara got out of his car – but almost instantly, the crowd moved forward and started shouting. The garda was struck in the back, and later recounted:The crowd then grabbed me and pulled me on the road. I struck out with my fists but was overwhelmed by the numbers of the crowd. I was thrown to the ground, kicked and beaten repeatedly with an iron bar. I heard shouts of ‘get the bastard, kill him’ and I screamed and screamed.A series of warning shots discharged by the Garda Special Branch officers dispersed the crowd – who fled to their cars and back across the border. Source: RTÉ News/screengrabAs gardaí gave chase, one invader was apprehended at random. As the dust settled, it later became clear that the man, detained under the Offences Against the State Act, was Peter Robinson MP – already a well-known figure in Northern politics, and the deputy leader of the DUP.The extent of the damage emerged as the village awoke the next day. Slogans had been painted on several buildings, including the garda station. Stones and small trees, which had been uprooted from a garden next-door, were also thrown at the station. Windows and lights had been broken on the main street – and locals gave multiple accounts of masked men marching through the town, carrying bars and other basic weapons.“It was terrifying – we were all shaking in bed,” one woman told RTÉ the next day.Court drama The loyalists insisted that the incursion had proved the lack of security along the border – and speaking to the media from his police cell in Monaghan the following day, Robinson was unrepentant.“I confess that I could have run away if I had sought to run away,” the MP for Belfast East told Downtown Radio.“But I was there to observe security and I saw no reason, as I had done nothing wrong, as to why I should run away.I can tell you this – that as far as security along the border is concerned we have the worst area of South Armagh with a gaping hole in it without any sign of security forces on either side of the border.If hundreds of men could walk around in what was supposed to be bandit country, Robinson asked, “how much easier must it be for the IRA going in ones and twos?”. 52,099 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 55 Comments Jan 21st 2017, 10:00 PM By Daragh Brophycenter_img Ian Paisley speaks to the BBC in a documentary aired in January 2014. Political historian at Stranmillis University College in Belfast Dr Eamon Phoenix said that official files from the 1980s released in recent years contained speculation about tensions between Paisley and Robinson.“He had been the loyal lieutenant since the 1970s but now was beginning to chafe at the bit somewhat at this stage, certainly,” Phoenix said.Paisley was out of the country at the time and certainly did not authorise Clontibret, there’s no question about that – and the files would give the impression that he was actually quite cold or perhaps privately critical of Robinson’s histrionics.There were indications the two men’s relationship had become “tetchy” by the 1980s as Robinson became increasingly frustrated that power was eluding him, Phoenix said.It was also clear that Paisley regarded Clontibret as an attempt to gazump his leadership and to really propel Robinson to the forefront during one of his regular absences.Explainer: What is the ‘cash for ash’ scandal?Related: Nearly half of Irish people think it’s time for a United Ireland > Short URL Saturday 21 Jan 2017, 10:00 PM Peter and Iris Robinson arrive in Dundalk with Ian Paisley and supporters. Source: Eamonn FarrellAfter a later court appearance, in Dundalk, Robinson’s supporters were chased out of town. News footage from the time shows stones and petrol bombs being thrown as the loyalists were pursued back their cars.Paisley complained to foreign office officials that he and Robinson had been afforded “totally inadequate protection” and had “narrowly escaped with their lives”.“The DUP leader claimed that £100,000 worth of damage had been done to cars belonging to Mr Robinson’s lawyer and supporters because of the Garda’s failure to protect them,” the foreign office report, released in 2014, said.Robinson, speaking to the same officials, “expressed grave concern about his safety should he appear in court again, as required, on October 2nd”.Threat to career The saga eventually came to an end in January of the following year – but only after another dramatic turn of events.At that October court appearance, Robinson learned that he would be served with seven further charges – including that of assaulting a garda in the course of duty.If found guilty, the MP could face up to two years in prison. While such a penalty, in and of itself, clearly presented a significant concern – as a result of laws brought in during the republican hunger strikes, it also it also meant that Robinson could be barred from standing from future elections in Westminster.A deal that would save his career was eventually agreed: in return for the more serious charges being dropped, Robinson pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of unlawful assembly.After a night a Limerick Prison, he appeared before the Special Criminal Court for sentencing on 17 January 1987, and was set free after being fined IR£17,500.

Source: JOHN McAVINEY/RollingNews.ieLeadership challengeThere was speculation at the time that Robinson had planned to use his arrest as a springboard to take over the leadership of the DUP – intending to burnish his reputation among hardliners by spending jail time in the Republic.Speaking in 2014, in what turned out to be his final interview, Paisley said that the cross-border incursion “”shouldn’t have been done”.Asked whether there was a feeling in his family that Robinson was making a challenge for the party leadership he said: “Everybody has a right to decide for themselves what their answer to that is.”Paisley added:I think he (Robinson) thought that there was going to be a tremendous uprising as a result of all that, and that didn’t happen.In a stinging public criticism of his mentor, Robinson responded by contending that Paisley, then aged 87, had had “a failure of recollection” about the incident.Paisley “was the one who had agreed to go to Clontibret,” the then-first minister insisted.He had to leave to go to a funeral in the US and I stepped in as his deputy into the Clontibret arrangement.

Snapchat Will Let Media Partners Aggregate Monetize User Posts

first_imgSnapchat is teaming with two dozen media partners to let them package together publicly shared user posts into curated segments — and make money from them.The initial Snap-approved partners for the Curated Our Stories program span the gamut from traditional news orgs like CNN and NBC News; digital brands like Group Nine’s NowThis and The Dodo, Refinery29, and Mic; existing partners like Viacom, iHeartMedia, Vice Media and Hearst (Cosmo and Harper’s Bazaar); emerging content companies like high-school sports media startup Overtime and The Infatuation; and viral-content aggregators like Jukin Media and LADbible.Those partners will be able to stitch together publicly submitted content from Snapchat users into Stories about events, places or themes, with editorial wrapped around them. Snap plans to run ads in the partner-curated Our Stories and split that revenue for the Stories they produce. The first Curated Our Stories will begin showing up in the next few weeks. Snapchat users create over 3 billion Snaps each day — but only a fraction of those are shared publicly. The new partner-curated Stories are an extension of Our Stories, which Snapchat launched in early 2015. That content, which is assembled by Snap’s in-house editorial team, has proven very popular: In the past month, over 75 million people have watched Our Stories on Snapchat’s Discover.The goal with the new Curated Our Stories partners is to expand the volume and variety of content available in Discover. Snap will provide tools to create the Stories, including the ability to source publicly submitted video and photo Snaps as well as add editorial elements like graphics and text.As with Our Stories, Snapchat users whose public posts are aggregated and monetized won’t receive a cut of the ad revenue directly (although some of Snap’s media partners plan to incorporate content from affiliated talent and influencers for their curated Our Stories).The new curated Our Stories initiative is being overseen by Rahul Chopra, head of Stories Everywhere at Snap. He’s the former CEO of News Corp’s Storyful social-analytics unit who joined Snap in December 2017.The impetus behind letting third parties like CNN, Viacom and Hearst tap into Snapchatters’ content came out of Snap’s Stories Everywhere launch earlier this year. That lets select Stories be shared on the web and make them searchable (although the web-based embeddable Stories don’t currently carry ads). The No. 1 request from media partners using Stories Everywhere was to have Snap open up public posts so they could curate their own user-generated packages.Here’s a full list of launch partners for Snapchat’s Curated Our Stories program: Brut, CNN, Cosmopolitan, Daily Mail, Daquan, The Dodo, Harper’s Bazaar, iHeartMedia, The Infatuation, Jukin Media, LADbible, Love Stories TV, Mic, NBC News and “Today” show, NBC Sports, New York Post, NowThis, Overtime, Refinery29, Telemundo, The Tab, Viacom, Vice Media, Wave.TV and Whalar. Snap is hoping partners create compelling curated collections. Popular Our Stories have included the surprise hit series Oddly Satisfying, as well as Tattoo Regrets, posts about the Hajj to Mecca, and user submissions about the NFL. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The finding, presented in a paper published July 11 on arXiv.org, makes the object one of only a handful hard X-ray eclipsing polars known to date. Explore further New eclipsing cataclysmic variable discovered More information: 2PBC J0658.0-1746: a hard X-ray eclipsing polar in the orbital period gap, arXiv:1907.05318. arxiv.org/pdf/1907.05318.pdf Cataclysmic variables (CVs) are binary star systems consisting of a white dwarf and a normal star companion. They irregularly increase in brightness by a large factor, then drop back down to a quiescent state. Polars are a subclass of cataclysmic variables distinguished from other CVs by the presence of a very strong magnetic field in their white dwarfs.Although over 140 polars have been detected to date, only 33 of them have been identified as eclipsing systems. Out of this number, so far, 12 such objects have been classified as hard X-ray eclipsing polars, which makes it a rare class. Therefore, any new addition to the still relatively short list of such objects is very important for building a larger database of these systems. This could offer astronomers more opportunities to study magnetic accretion in binaries, for instance.Now, a team of researchers led by Federico Bernardini of Rome Observatory in Italy reports about the newest addition to this list. By analyzing the data from XMM-Newton and Swift, they found that 2PBCJ0658.0-1746 (J0658), an unidentified source discovered by the Swift/BAT survey, appears to be a hard X-ray eclipsing polar.”The XMM-Newton observation, carried out a few months later in 2018, is here reported together with archival Swift/XRT and Swift/BAT light curves and spectra,” the researchers wrote in the paper.According to the paper, the X-ray emission shows bright and faint phases and total eclipses recurring every 2.38 hours. Moreover, the X-ray emission was found to be modulated at the orbital period and the intensity of the modulation turned out to be variable from cycle to cycle. Such behavior is indicative of a non-stationary mass accretion rate. The astronomers also found that the X-ray luminosity is highly variable on long timescales and the XMM-Newton spacecraft caught it at the lowest state ever observed. When it comes to the X-ray spectrum, observations have shown that it is thermal and consistent with a multi-temperature structure, as observed in many magnetic systems.In general, the results confirmed that J0658 is the 13th hard X-ray eclipsing polar detected. The researchers added that its orbital period of around 2.38 hours makes it a rare find, as only one pulsar of this type with similar orbital period (between two and three hours) has been identified to date.The study also reported fundamental parameters of the J0658 system. According to the research, the polar is located some 681 light years away and consists of a white dwarf with a mass of at least 0.6 solar masses and a companion of spectral type M4 about four times smaller than the sun, with a mass between 0.2 and 0.25 solar masses. The effective temperature of the white dwarf is estimated to be between 12,000 and 22,000 K, while for the companion this value was calculated to be at least about 3,000 K.

This Is Why You Should Be Excited for the Internet of Bikes

first_img Register Now » 3 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. May 15, 2014center_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Bikes generally haven’t changed that much since they first rolled, apart from getting lighter and sleeker and being outfitted with mini motors. For about 120 years, the humble, spoked two-wheeler has helped people get where they’re going.But it’s never been smart enough to tell people where to go. Not until now.Enter the Vanhawks Valour, a GPS-enabled Bluetooth smart bike that delivers turn-by-turn directions to riders using LED indicator lights embedded in its handlebars.Related: A Fashionable, Inflatable Bike Helmet Collar? Yes, You Read That RightIts Canadian creators are calling the sleek, matte black and ruby red pedal pusher the “world’s first connected bike for the urban commuter.” And, though we’re typically extremely skeptical of often inflated “first-ever” claims, we don’t think these guys are exaggerating.  California engineering undergrad Kenny Gibbs came close last year when he invented a set of standalone GPS-enabled Helios handlebars for bikes. The Yuba City, Calif.-based designer’s aluminium bars help users geolocate their bikes when lost or stolen, indicate estimated speed and light up on either side to tell riders which way to go when they roll up to their next turn.Cool as Gibbs’ handlebars may be, they’re hardware you have to add to your bike. Not a bike itself. That’s where he lost his edge.Related: 8 Ways the ‘Internet of Things’ Will Impact Your Everyday LifeThe Toronto-based Vanhawks crew went whole hog and put all of the “connected” functionality that the Helios bars have into a badass, heck of a good-looking bike. And they took “the internet of bikes” theme quite a bit further than Gibbs did, though he still has one thing on them — his Helios bars have blinking directional lights, a safety feature we’re surprised the Valour doesn’t seem to have.   Designed to make urban bike commuting safer, the Valour does, however, warn riders of dangers lurking in their blind spots. The bike’s mesh network, ultrasonic haptic feedback sensors detect nearby vehicles. When riders veer too close to traffic, the sensors trigger the handlebars to vibrate, another industry “first” the bike’s designers claim they boast the bragging rights to.The multi sensor-loaded Valour also works like a Fitbit with wheels, tallying stats like riders’ calories burned, speed, distance traveled, best times and more. Ride data is delivered via Valour’s companion smartphone app, which is slated to be available for iOS and Android devices and Pebble smart watches upon product launch.  Related: College Startup Re-Imagines Bike SharingThe durable, ultra-light carbon fiber bodied bike went live on Kickstarter 16 days ago and has already more than quadrupled its $91,962 funding goal. With 16 more days to go, additional pledges are icing.

Costa Rican court annuls building concessions in Osa Peninsula protected areas

first_imgThe Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, or Sala IV, on Friday ruled against construction concessions granted by the Municipality of Osa in the southern Pacific for new tourism businesses inside protected areas.The Sala IV ruled in favor of an appeal against the municipality, which had said that forests and wetlands located inside “natural areas of patrimony” were fair game for the projects, part of a new development plan for the canton.Sala IV justices said that “in the absence of certainty about whether or not activities will cause serious or irreparable damage to an area, the administration must refrain from approving such projects.”The court suspended all concessions in the area “until there is absolute certainty that the properties are not part of natural patrimonial lands.” The case against the Osa Municipality was filed by local conservationist groups, after the municipality approved a construction concession for a private marina in the area.According to the complaint, several other projects are being planned and built in protected areas in the Osa region.The Osa Peninsula is one of the richest regions in the world in terms of biodiversity, boasting nearly 2 percent of animal and plant species found around the world.

Troubling increase of cancer in Latin America

first_imgMost recent global data indicate that the number of cases and deaths caused by the disease will grow in the region in a faster pace than the average.Different sectors point to the need of action in order to increase access to cancer treatment. Better infrastructure, more financing, human resources and availability of treatment are the most mentioned solutions.Every two minutes, five persons are diagnosed with cancer in Latin America. The region has 1.4 million new cases per year and the disease continue to increase. In September 2018, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), linked to the World Health Organization (WHO), updated the Global Cancer Observatory and the picture for the future is alarming: the incidence of the disease is bound to grow 63 percent in the world until 2040, and the number of deaths should increase 71.5 percent.In developing areas, like Latin America, where early diagnostic and the access to treatment are more difficult, the outlook is even worse: the number of cases must leap 73 percent in the next 21 years, getting close to 2.5 million a year.At the same time, the access to health care in the region faces serious problems: according to a study published in The Lancet, more than 156 million people die every year due to the lack of access to health services. The growing need of attention faces fragmented health systems, lacking infrastructure, human resources, diagnostic, treatment and financing.Formed by countries with different socioeconomic and cultural realities, Latin America also has different panoramas related to prevention and fight against cancer. “The situation is uneven. There are countries with well succeeded policies, well implemented and with good results, such as Uruguay and Costa Rica, and there are others that are still very far from these results”, analyses the oncologist Eduardo Cazap, one of the biggest authorities of the region. The doctor was the founder and first president of the Latin American and Caribbean Society of Medical Oncology (SLACOM, in the original language) and he also presided the International Union against Cancer (UICC, in the original language).The specialist adds that Chile, Peru and Colombia have also obtained good results with their policies, and that Brazil is making “important progress”. In Latin America, cancer is the second most deadly disease, losing only to cardiovascular illnesses.The report Latin America Cancer Control Scorecard (LACCS), published by The Economist Intelligence Unit, has shown that only 7 percent of the population of the twelve analysed Latin-American countries live in areas where there is a thorough registration of the cases. With respect to the PNCCs, in 2014 ten countries had a well-developed plan, but its implementation and the results were variable. “In order to be effective, the plan must be well designed, be fit to the needs of the country and be according to the existing resources”, asserts Cazap.However, the implementation of the politics stumble upon the lack of resources, on cultural barriers such as the fear to be screened and finding out a disease, and that at the time, and the difficulty to reach the whole population. “The fragmentation is a common problem in almost every country. There are areas where the population have a very good resources bases, even better than in developed countries, while in others, access is too limited”, says Cazap.In Peru, for instance, 85 percent of oncologists are in the capital; in Colombia, six out of each group of ten specialists live in the four biggest cities of the country. In Panama and Paraguay there aren’t linear accelerators outside the capitals. In Brazil, people living in cities like Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro have good hospitals, professionals and equipment, but those who live in the North of the Country, in the Amazon, virtually don’t have access to treatments. “I believe that the governments efforts must be focused on democratizing the access to public health care”, says the coordinator of the Agreement Against Cancer in Ecuador, Wilson Merino.Another problem that is common to the countries is the little investment in prevention, which drives to a statistics worrying: between 30 percent to 40 percent of tumours are diagnosed in advanced stages. “Speak about cancer and taking good quality information should be public health programmes. This is a challenge to every country”, asserts the director of the National Institute of Cancer of Uruguay, Álvaro Luongo.The doctor remembers that many diseases may be prevented or detected right at the beginning, elevating the chances of a cure: lung tumours may be avoided with good anti-smoking policies; breast and prostate tumours may be detected early by a mammogram and rectal examination, respectively; and cervix tumour may be avoided by vaccinating the population against the HPV.According to an estimative of the World Oncology Forum, edition 2014, to each US$ 1 invested in prevention, US$ 2.74 are saved in treatment.This story was made possible thanks to The Tico Times 5 % Club.

Duryodhan and Dusha

Duryodhan and Dushasan’ The BJP leader also responded to the ‘Shalya’ remarks reportedly made by the prime minister on Thursday."Shalya" uncle of two of the five Pandava brothers –Nakul and Sahadev — in Mahabharat was a powerful mace fighter and a formidable charioteer who was tricked by Duryodhan to fight war on the side of the Kauravas Referring to that remark Sinha said after being tricked by Duryodhan Shalya had become a charioteer of Karna He went on to say "The Kauravas were 100 brothers If I ask you to name the third brother you will not be able to (tell) or even I will not be able to unless I refer to the Mahabharat So a situation arose where 100 brothers who constituted the Kaurava clan out of them only two became infamous Duryodhan and Dushasan Do I need to say anything more" ‘Democracy isn’t merely numbers’ On a serious note Sinha observed that democracy is not merely numbers "The soul of democracy is consensus So even if you have the numbers you have to reach out to other people and parties to try and get them along" Sinha said recalling the days in Indian politics when stalwarts like Chandra Shekhar and Atal Bihari Vajpayee (both former Prime Ministers) set high ethical standards in politics "Nobody talked about Mukt-this Mukt-that because we are all part of the democratic process and we know that democracy means discussion debate and an evolution of consensus based on these discussion" Sinha said in a clear attack on BJP’s "Congress-mukt Bharat" (congress-free India) slogan "And if debates and discussions don’t take place consensus will not be there and that will kill the very fabric of democracy" he said stressing the need to have dissenting voices in a healthy democratic set-up Sinha said that the first lesson he learnt in politics from the likes of Chandra Shekhar Vajpayee and LK Advani was that "whatever your political persuasions may be don’t allow those differences to affect your personal relations" "So when I was approached to come to this function to release the book by Manish Tewari I readily agreed.I know the company I will be photographed with It sends some message I must also say I really don’t care" he said "Some people believe that at this ripe old age of 80 I am perhaps looking for a job Now I come from a part of the country that has produced a famous character His name is Babu Kunwar Singh "Babu Kunwar Singh became a major freedom fighter in the first war of Independence of 1857 When he joined the war he was 80 years old So there is no age bar for fighting for freedom" Sinha said "Let me tell you that darr (fear) and democracy don’t go together And we will all have to strive together Because at the end of the day we have to maintain the greatest tradition of parliamentary democracy Let us stand up and face it" Sinha said Milan:The prevailing theme for Gian Piero Ventura’s run as Italy coach was that the 69-year-old journeyman manager was in far over his head Having never coached a major club before taking over the national team in 2016 Ventura covered himself in disgrace on Monday when four-time champions Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in six decades Italy coach Gian Piero Ventura has refused to resign despite failing to take his team to the 2018 FIFA World Cup AP Ventura was widely criticized for poor tactical decisions before and after Sweden’s 1-0 aggregate win over the Azzurri After the scoreless draw in the second leg in Milan it was a foregone conclusion he will be fired according to a contract stipulation in case of a failed qualification — unless he resigns "I’m not resigning because I haven’t spoken with the (federation) president" Ventura said "We need to evaluate things We’ll see I’ll talk with the federation and confront the problem "I feel I have to apologize to Italians for the result" Ventura’s expected ouster will come in sharp contrast to his predecessor Antonio Conte Conte was lauded for getting the most out of Italy before the Azzurri lost on penalties to Germany in the quarterfinals of last year’s European Championship When Conte departed for Chelsea after Euro 2016 Ventura was given the crowning job on a career that had seen him coach the likes of Pisa Bari and Torino "I’ve been in football many years so I know how to accept it" Ventura said of the failed qualification "I’m honoured to have been a part of the national team and to have worked with great champions and with others that I hope will become great "I’m upset because tonight I understood the significance of coaching the national team" Ventura’s attachment to two forwards he coached at Torino Ciro Immobile and Andrea Belotti and his refusal to try a three-striker formation led him to continually leave Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne on the bench Considered Italy’s most talented player of the moment Insigne was inexplicably asked to come on for Marco Verratti in a central midfield position late in the opening leg against Sweden Likewise winger Stephan El Shaarawy was given little playing time despite a show of solid form at Roma that included a brace against Conte’s Chelsea in the Champions League "We showed few ideas and not much in the way of tactics" said veteran midfielder Daniele De Rossi who retired from the national team after the playoff Late in the second leg De Rossi argued with Ventura’s staff when they asked him to warm up He later suggested he thought Insigne or someone else should enter "If I offended anyone I’m sorry" De Rossi said The Azzurri elimination had been brewing for months Italy was outclassed by Spain 3-0 in September virtually sealing its fate of entering the playoffs Then in five consecutive matches Italy scored a total of three goals against Israel Macedonia Albania and Sweden "Sport teaches that you win and lose as a team" retiring captain Gianluigi Buffon said "The coach shares in our mistakes" Carlo Ancelotti who was fired by Bayern Munich in September is being mentioned as a possible replacement for Ventura Ancelotti who coached Juventus and AC Milan before going abroad to win titles with Chelsea Paris Saint-Germain Real Madrid and Bayern has the big-club resume that Ventura lacked But it remains to be seen if he’ll be willing to coach the national team or if he still prefers the daily activities of a club Other options include installing a caretaker and luring back Conte who has expressed homesickness at Chelsea or perhaps Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri or Zenit St Petersburg’s Roberto Mancini once the club season ends Meanwhile the status of Italian football federation president Carlo Tavecchio was also in question Italian Olympic Committee president Giovanni Malago who oversees all sports in the country intimated recently that Tavecchio should resign if Italy fails to qualify There is a precedent since Giancarlo Abete the previous federation president and coach Cesare Prandelli each resigned immediately after Italy was eliminated in the first round of the 2014 World Cup Whoever takes over will have to rebuild a squad that doesn’t feature a single standout player There is youth though Belotti is only 23 Insigne is 26 and Immobile is 27 At 27 the long-excluded Mario Balotelli could still have plenty to contribute if he ever matures enough At 25 Marco Verratti still hasn’t put in a solid performance for Italy as he attempts to replace the retired Andrea Pirlo in midfield In defence the veteran "BBC" trio of Andrea Barzagli Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci — who have a combined age of 99 — is destined to be broken up with Barzagli retiring from the national team Younger defenders on the horizon include Daniele Rugani Alessio Romagnoli and Mattia Caldara In goal 18-year-old AC Milan starter Gianluigi

year Frustrated by a feeling that he had to spend his own money to advance his career this past February Hind took to Twitter using the hashtag #SciSpends to ask other scientists to share how much they’d spent As the conversation grew Hind realized that he was a lightweight when it came to personal spending as some researchers reported shelling out thousands of dollars to keep their work going And he wondered: Were many other scientists also reaching into their pockets Was success in science becoming dependent on being affluent enough to pay your own way Ultimately Hind teamed up with marine ecologist Brett Favaro of the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada to conduct the more rigorous #SciSpends survey which they formally launched 30 March The two researchers discussed the project—and what they hope to get out of it—in e-mail interviews with ScienceInsider The exchanges have been edited for clarity and brevity Q: Why are you doing this survey EH: We saw that this debate raised a number of questions that we could investigate and that we wanted to investigate … We really want to quantify [personal spending] What are the different costs of being a postdoc in North America and Europe [Does personal spending] increase or decrease as a scientific career advances Are there differences between biology chemistry physics and the social sciences Are the entry costs to science greater if you are female BF: As someone only a year into my first faculty job it struck me that I didn’t know what I should and shouldn’t be expected to cover for my first group of graduate students In talking to my peers it seemed that every student was treated on a case-by-case basis and sometimes even students in the same lab would have different things covered While there will always be some inequity in science it seems like there should be some list of things that we as supervisors should be expected to cover for students Aside from universities usually having a recommended minimum stipend that list doesn’t seem to exist We’re hoping this survey can act as a first step in the conversation Q: How’s the response BF: At this point we have received just over 500 responses We’re hoping this will end up going into the thousands EH: It’s been the most dynamic Twitter exchange I’ve been involved in and I can’t stop myself from scrolling through the data that we have already collected The initial findings look to be eye-opening We’re both in the ecological or biological field and the response from that community has been humbling What we really want to see now is responses from different branches of science I’m fascinated to know whether astronomers too have to pay their way to conferences and whether a chemist’s lab costs are similar to how much I paid for my dive gear [for doing marine research] Q: What is the most that you’ve spent out of pocket BF: I have always been fortunate with scholarships and funding so I’ve never had to spend a large amount of personal money on science EH: As a marine scientist the biggest chunk I spent was on scuba diving gear Even though my former employer got us some great reduced rates it still cost well over $600 Then it has to be serviced every year and that isn’t cheap Q: What costs do you most frequently have to cover on your own dime EH: The biggest regular hits are conference fees and professional memberships Conference fees are typically $100 to $500 and can be three or four times a year I’m lucky if I get more than one fully covered Q: What barriers do you face in getting money to cover out-of-pocket expenses BF: One is time to reimbursement We are asking about this on the survey because I recall times in grad school when it would be weeks or months before I would be reimbursed for a given expense EH: Credit card interest is a research expense that is always out of pocket Q: What would happen if you didn’t use personal funds to cover some of your costs EH: I am pretty sure I would have to think about giving up on my dream of being an impactful scientist or at least compromising on it I’m 110% committed to being a scientist … [but] 110% effort may not be enough if I can’t afford to get to the conferences where I may meet somebody that gives me the job that I don’t currently have It also might not be enough if I can’t afford to publish in the high impact factor open-access journals where my work is most likely to be seen Q: How do you decide how much of your own money to spend EH: I spend what I can afford on science and sometimes more If I hadn’t overextended last year a symposium I was [leading] would have fallen through That wouldn’t just have harmed my science but that of others I’ll emphasize too that it’s not just a decision for me; it’s for my family as well I can’t spend money on science if that means my family can’t get by from month to month I know from the #SciSpends chat on Twitter that I am not alone in this situation Both my wife and I are researchers and we both spend personal money on conference attendance But we will veto a conference if we think it means we won’t be able to go on holiday Scientists need holidays or vacation and despite what many of us say conferences are not holidaysOne of the attendees at Donald Trump’s rally in Montana turned himself into a meme While all ears were on the

23 a clear-eyed band of working-class British women frustrated by the failure of peaceful attempts to secure their right to vote employ militaristic tactics in pursuit of their goal They set off bombs in public trashcans hurl rocks through shop windows and set fire to politicians homes These were not as screenwriter Abi Morgan told TIME in a recent interview alongside director Sarah Gavron "middle-class ladies in bonnets bashing tambourines" They were a group of very angry feminists The film doesn’t use the phrase “angry feminist” of courseit wasn’t around in 1913 The association between feminism and anger can be traced to the radical feminism of the 1960s when that "ism" took on the connotations of bra-burning and man-hating And those stereotypes still exist today if less conspicuously as evidenced by the responses of a bevy of young stars when asked in recent years if they identified as feminists No said Taylor Swift Shailene Woodley Kelly Clarkson and Lady Gagasome of whom have since reversed their positionswith Clarkson explaining that the word is "too strong" and Woodley and Lady Gaga both protesting "I love men" Ever since Beyoncé embraced feminism in front of millions at the 2014 Video Music Awards the ideology has enjoyed a more mainstream following albeit in a friendlier more populist generally non-angry form The question for Suffragette thenbeyond the matter of its efficacy as a conveyor of underappreciated historyis whether a movie about angry feminists a century ago might help bring angry feminism back into vogue today Morgan isnt particularly concerned with the word "anger"after all she acknowledges "the world can make you very angry" "I think what we have to take the curse out of is the word feminism" she continues "In the same way as [the suffragettes] were undermined and ridiculed in the press and in Westminster part of the propaganda machine is to subvert that word and make women and men feel very uncomfortable with it" One challenge in depicting a movement as remote as the women’s suffrage movement is its potential to feel at least for some viewers too far in the past to fully identify with Its a challenge Morgan and Gavron thought long and hard about while making the film and one Gavron addressed in her direction "We tried to break with the convention of the period drama" she explains "to make it feel visceral and follow those women down the street and be in their shoes" The filmmakers also posit that despite the near universality of womens suffrage today (women in Saudi Arabia text at the movies end announces still cannot vote although that’s set to change this December) many of the ancillary issues invoked in the film are far from resolved While researching the period for the script Morgan found that "the womens voices sounded so vivid and so contemporary" The issues they described in interviews and testimonials"equal pay appalling working conditions sexual violence and abuse at work and at home parental rights custodial rights property rights"are not exactly relics of ancient history A few weeks ago at the films premiere at the BFI London Film Festival two groups of women showed up to prove this point Members of an anti-domestic violence organization called Sisters Uncut stormed the red carpet chanting "Dead women cant vote" objecting to recent government cuts to domestic violence services Another group of demonstrators rallied to protest unequal representation of women in Parliament Though some directors might have labeled the protests a disturbance to their films big night Gavron felt otherwise "The protests were actually extraordinary because they were in the spirit of the film" she says "The film is connecting with the fact that we still have issues to deal with in the 21st century globally and in the UK" For a photo-shoot in Time Out London the movies stars including Meryl Streep and Carey Mulligan donned shirts emblazoned with suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhursts incendiary quote "Id rather be a rebel than a slave" The shirts and the suggestion some inferred from them that escaping slavery is a simple choice incited admonishments for failing to acknowledge the intersectional nature of feminism But Morgan in many ways welcomed the controversy "I think if it becomes the narrative of this film whose intention is so sincere to promote the equality of all women globally then that would be unfortunate she says But barring that she explained "I think its a really important conversation I think we have to have it Its brilliant its been raised and we have to keep talking about it" It may be easier for the average viewer in 2015 to justify the anger of the suffragetteswho were fighting for a right many today take for grantedthan it is for some to swallow anger in this age of pop culture embracing feminism But for Gavron and Morgan it doesnt matter so much what it is that inspires people to take actionbe it anger hope or desperation Suffragette is not in the business of proposing how one should feel but rather the lengths to which one might go if she wishes to inspire change We have a variety of tools at our disposal todayblowing up trashcans may be out of favor where interrupting a red carpet event is more de rigueurbut Gavron and Morgan not surprisingly are here to promote one in particular "Our intention was to advocate to use your vote and to remind us all that it was hard-won" Whether ones feminism is angry or hopeful its most effective they insist when channeled through the tug of a voting booth lever 17 of History’s

Gilgit Baltistan was in the news last month when Chinese President Xi Jinping announced the construction of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) from China’s Xinjiang province to Gwadar port in Balochistan.A major portion of CPEC passes through Gilgit-Baltistan As CPEC is the showpiece of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s highly ambitious ‘One belt one road’ initiative Gilgit-Baltistan has assumed great geo-strategic importance But what is Gilgit-Baltistan While it is under Pakistani control Gilgit-Balstistan’s constitutional and legal status remains ambiguous Gilgit-Baltistan does not find a mention in Pakistan’s constitution It is neither a part of what Pakistan calls Azad Kashmir nor is it a province of Pakistan In fact Pakistan Supreme Court pronounced in 1994 that these areas “are part of Jammu & Kashmir state but are not part of ‘Azad Kashmir’” Figure this out This huge territory more than six times the size of so-called Azad Kashmir and part of the erstwhile princely state of Jammu and Kashmir was known as the Northern Frontier during the British rule It came under Pakistan’s control after November 4 1947 when the British Commander of Gilgit Scouts Major William Alexander Brown declared accession to Pakistan Major Brown who was awarded the MBE by the British and the Star of Pakistan by Rawalpindi was an employee of the Maharaja of Kashmir In his book The Gilgit Rebellion Major Brown says that “as a liberal member of the world’s paragon of democracy I considered that the whole of Kashmir including Gilgit Province unquestionably go to Pakistan in view of the fact that the population was predominantly Muslim Partisan traitor revolutionary I may have been but that evening my sentiments dictated that if the Maharaja acceded to India then I would forego all the allegiance to him” The 24-year old Major might have seen himself as the paragon of democracy but the territory he brought under Pakistan’s control hasn’t seen any democracy since In April 1949 the region was dissociated from Pakistan-occupied Azad Kashmir named ‘The Northern Areas of Pakistan’ and put under the direct control of a joint secretary in the Federal Ministry of Kashmir Affairs and Northern Areas Affairs The next major blow to the Shia-dominated region came from Prime Minister ZA Bhutto in 1974 when he abrogated the State Subject Rule the law that protected the local demographic composition Wittingly or otherwise Pakistan encouraged Sunnis from other parts of the country to acquire land and settle in Gilgit-Baltistan It destroyed the social fabric of the region and triggered sectarian feuds that continue till today Worse was to follow under General Zia-ul Haq when he unleashed anti-Shia forces in the region Shia-Sunni and Shia-Nurbakshi riots staged allegedly with state connivance caused extreme socio-political polarisation in Skardu in the early 1980s The final blow came in May 1988 when tribal Lashkars after receiving a nod from the establishment abducted local women and massacred thousands of Shias in Gilgit In 2009 Pakistan government promulgated the Gilgit-Baltistan (Empowerment and Self-Governance) Order Designed to create the impression of liberal self rule this executive order is another in the series of paradoxes that characterise Pakistan’s policy towards Gilgit-Baltistan Devoid of any constitutional authority it provides for a 33-member Gilgit-Baltistan Legislative Assembly and a local administration headed by a Chief Minister The real powers however continue to be vested in the Gilgit-Baltistan Council which is headed by the Pakistani Prime Minister and has a majority of members nominated by him Even then as in the case of the Interim Constitution of PoK all office bearers in Gilgit-Baltistan have to sign an oath of allegiance to Pakistan Incidentally India had protested the 2009 executive order calling it “yet another cosmetic exercise intended to camouflage Pakistan’s illegal occupation” of parts of Jammu and Kashmir But even elections to this toothless assembly have not been held on time The assembly’s term got over in November last year and the region has since been handed over to a caretaker government Elections are scheduled in June and PML-N is making a strong push for power this time Emasculated politically and troubled ethnically Gilgit-Baltistan has also suffered the consequences of increasing Islamist militancy in Pakistan Many Taliban who escaped from Swat and adjoining areas found shelter among Sunni extremists in Gilgit More than 300 suspected Islamist terrorists were expelled from Gilgit in October 2008 Shia passengers have been pulled out of buses and killed by Sunni terror groups while even foreign mountaineers have not been spared Independent voices from Gilgit-Baltistan have been suppressed by Pakistan and the region is often forgotten not only globally but also in India while discussing Kashmir Though the Indian parliament had passed a unanimous resolution in 1994 expressing “regret and concern at the pitiable conditions and violations of human rights and denial of democratic freedoms of the people in those areas of the Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir which are under the illegal occupation of Pakistan” Indian civil society can do more to provide a voice to the people suffering in Gilgit-Baltistan But all this pales in comparison to the geostrategic importance of this region particularly vis-à-vis China The contested Siachen glacier lies there Gilgit-Baltistan is the only land connection Pakistan has with China and it adjoins the 225-km long Wakhan Corridor of Afghanistan Notwithstanding the exaggerated reports of Chinese military presence in Gilgit-Baltistan there are at least 35 ongoing Chinese projects in PoK Meanwhile the Karakoram Highway which had been unusable for the last five years following a landslide has been repaired by Chinese engineers and is likely to be reopened in November The construction of the CPEC will mean increased Chinese involvement and presence in the geo-strategically important region As Prime Minister Modi visits China thisweek dealing with the recent strengthening of the China-Pakistan linkage will be on his agenda It will help to remember that Gilgit-Baltistan remains the weakest join in the Pakistan-China link [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian
