49ers’ CJ Beathard on brother’s murder: ‘I can find some peace knowing that he is at peace’

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock(SAN FRANCISCO) — San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard says he’s heartbroken after the murder of his younger brother, but says he’s finding “some peace knowing that he is at peace in heaven.”Clayton Beathard, 22, and Paul Trapeni III, 21, were stabbed to death outside a Nashville bar in the early hours of Dec. 21.Trapeni was a student at Rhodes College in Memphis, while Clayton Beathard was a junior at New York’s Long Island University, where he played quarterback on its football team.C.J. Beathard, 26, is opening up about his relationship with his little brother, saying he had “the biggest heart of anyone that I have ever known.”“He is the most loyal guy that I have ever known in my life and has always been so dang proud of my family and I,” Beathard wrote on Instagram Friday. “It sounds so cliché but Clay is the best example of a dude that lights up every room he walks into whether it’s with his loud contagious laugh or just the smile on his face.”“He also has the weirdest ways of making unforgettable relationships with literally everyone he meets,” Beathard added. “Clay is the sweetest, most humble, toughest, and kind hearted people this world had in it, but he was called home and now has none of the pains and stresses only this world could give.”C.J. Beathard, a backup signal caller for the 49ers, described coming to terms with his brother’s death.“I just know Clay is looking at us grieving down here right now saying ‘stay strong’ ‘I’m doing great up here’ and ‘I will see you soon,’” Beathard said. “What happened is absolutely awful and has been and will continue to be the hardest things my family and I have had to go through. But I can find some peace knowing that he is at peace in heaven right now, and I know without a doubt God will bring a whole bunch of good out of this.”“My relationship with God has strengthened so much already throughout this along with my family’s. I have come to see a whole new view on life, in such a good way,” Beathard said.He ended his post by urging others “to make sure you tell everyone you love that you love them as much as you can, because you have absolutely no idea when the last time you may talk to or see them again will be.”The prime suspect in the stabbings, Michael Mosley, 23, was captured Wednesday at a vacant home in Ashland City, Tennessee, following a days-long manhunt.Mosley’s attorney, Justin Johnson, says his client acted in self-defense, reported The Tennessean.He’s set to appear in court on Jan. 7.Clayton Beathard’s father, Casey Beathard, told ABC News on Friday: “We are thankful that [Mosley] is off of the streets. We are sad because two incredible young men are missed.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Nelson’s Columns: A Blindman’s Bluffs

first_imgLet’s be honest, most people never venture further than Europe. When the cheap spirit of wanderlust awakens, a group trip (courtesy of Easyjet) to the sun-kissed regions of Spain soon cures the travel-bug. Often the holy trinity of boozy paradises – Majorca, Minorca and Malaga – in association with Club so and so, adequately nourish the Joepublic soul with the sublime necessities of sand, sea, sex and more sex. Meanwhile Africa merely registers as that place where Bob Geldof “did his bit for us, for those skinny kids”. Often the seasonal destination of many a “Hoorah Henry” and the hutbuilding wealthy Gap year student, “cos laahk yah know, I raahlly wanna help the children”, Africa remains distant and inaccessible to most. A continent that conjures up images of expense, famine, disease and poverty couldn’t really be a holiday destination for the masses, could it? Lonely Planet’s excellent new travel guide, Africa on a Shoestring aims to dispel the miasma of thought surrounding the continent. A mixture of social comment, history, practical information and observational humour, this sturdy tome is an invaluable guide for any budgetconscious traveller aiming to explore the impressive diversity of Africa. From the Roman and Pharaonic temples of the Maghreb (North Africa), to the spicy charm of the East, the platelicking cuisine of the West and right down to the jaw-droppingly inspiring natural sites of Southern Africa, any adventurer on a tight budget can experience the continent to its fullest, particularly students suffering from the monstrous after-effects of a student loan. The emphasis is on “shoestring” and so each page is conceived with this concern in mind; the helpful itineraries to plan budget backpacking around specific regions of Africa, from North to South, “the Maghreb Meander” to “French Footsteps”, must be looked at. With this endlessly useful one-stop reference guide, you can’t really go wrong. Lonely Planet adds yet another jewel to backpacking culture.ARCHIVE: 2nd week TT 2004last_img read more

Motion to allow multiple terms in OUSU comes under fire

first_imgO’Connell too questioned the motivations behind allowing sabbatical officers to return in the name of stability, stating his belief that political ambition underpinned the rule change.“Obviously the case here hinges on whatever ‘political continuity’ is supposed to mean,” he said. “No doubt Hugo Chavez in Venezuela has removed the ban on him being president for life in the name of ‘political continuity’. I can’t see a positive reason for it other than to allow certain people to perpetuate their careers in Oxford.”Paul Dwyer said that the benefit of his proposal would be that officers “would actually have time to carry through more long term plans, which currently isn’t possible” and added that successful officers should be allowed to continue. He said, “If someone is doing a fantastic job in their position, I don’t think it a bad thing that they should have the chance to continue for another year.”Both Dwyer and Iwu have denied that they want to run for an additional year in office.The motion is proposed alongside concerns over a lack of interest in this week’s OUSU by-elections, despite attempts of the executive to increase student participation.Two of the positions failed to attract a single nominee and four were uncontested.Concerning the lack of candidates for some part-time positions on the executive, Iwu admitted, “In an ideal world we’d have people for those positions. We’re going to try hard to get people to run and advertise them again.”He said apathy towards elected positions does not indicate any apathy towards OUSU as a wider student body. “When we assess people’s interest in OUSU the elections are just one small part of that. You’ve got to look at it as a whole and consider RAG, Target Schools and our grassroots campaign.”OUSU Returning Officer Madeline Stanley said, “OUSU is stepping up its publicity in general and also seeing increased support and involvement from students notnecessarily on the executive.” She argued that by-elections for the part time executive would inevitably attract less interest than sabbatical elections, and stressed that OUSU had “just had some highly visible statutory elections for sabbatical officers which really engaged the student body with huge numbers of activists and voters.”The lack of competition for the part-time vacancies means that only the only real competition in this week’s by-election was for the position of Academic Affairs Campaign Officer. The positions of Community Outreach & Charities Officer, Students with Disabilities Officer and Graduate Welfare Officer only had oneOUSU were unable to find a single candidate for the positions of Black and Minority Ethnic Students’ and Anti-Racism Officer, Mature Students Officer or LGBTQ Officer. A controversial motion that would allow OUSU sabbatical officers to run for multiple terms in office has been attacked by members of the student body.Paul Dwyer, current Vice-President for Access and Academic Affairs, proposed the motion claiming that it would help the “long term future of OUSU”.Oxford is currently one of only three student unions – the others being Warwick and Edinburgh – that do not allow sabbatical officers to run for re-election.However, the motion has been met with suspicion throughout the University. Jim O’Connell, OUSU rep for University College, attacked the motion stating the he saw “no real rationale for the rule change” adding that it “would institutionalise rule by a narrow, self-perpetuating clique student”.President Lewis Iwu supported the proposal, stating that “continuity can help the student’s union”, but has nevertheless acknowledged the potential danger of increased politicisation and the growth of cliques. He said,“The decision OUSU council has to make is whether that outweighs the benefit of having someone with two year’s experience. If it does emerge that sabbatical officers are forming cliques and dominating OUSU then I think there would be a reaction against that…we should trust the electorate.”However others have questioned the benefits of such political stability. Wadham JCR President, Will McCallum, expressed fears that the changes “will only serve to add to this image of a non-influential student body”. He stated,“I believe that OUSU is about current students. University life does change year by year and having a student who has been two years out of Oxford is not necessarily a good idea.”He argued that the motion would hamper progress in made in reducing the cliques of the Union, saying “OUSU is gradually becoming less and less cliquey at the moment, partly due to the recent Gaza motion, and it would be nice to see this continue, something this motion will not help.”last_img read more

OULC visits Downing Street

first_imgFive members of Oxford University Labour Club (OULC) were invited for a tour of 10 Downing Street this week, following their successful campaigning work during Trinity term. “This is the first time the Labour Club have been invited to 10 Downing Street,” said Charlotte Carnegie, co-Chair of OULC for Hilary term. OULC is the biggest student Labour Club in Britain. Over the past two terms, OULC’s speakers have included Alistair Campbell, David Miliband, Jack Straw, Peter Mandelson, Harriet Harman and Ken Livingstone. Carnegie described what happened at Number 10. “We had the chance to see Gordon Brown’s main office as well as Tony Blair’s former office, which was quite different, with armchairs and sofas. Then we went to the second floor where Margaret Thatcher worked; every Prime Minister seemed to have their specific way of working with a different room layout. We bumped into Peter Mandelson and Ed Balls. We also saw Gordon Brown’s son, which reminded us that 10 Downing Street is a family home as well as offices.”Hannah Cusworth, co-Chair of OULC for Hilary term commented, “In Trinity we did a lot of canvassing and worked from 5am until 10pm on the day of the local and European elections.” She added, “I think the Party values the fact that we’re working to help Labour on a national scale, not just having drinks.” Oliver Harvey, President of the Oxford Conservative Association (OCA) commented, “OCA have always had very strong links with the national Party. We hope they feel that we are a valuable addition to the campaigning force.”Harvey wished to add that “OCA have also been to Downing Street, to deliver a petition about the health care of ex-service men and women. We were then hosted by Lord Freeman, a Conservative Peer, at the House of Lords.”last_img read more

Pllucked from the middle of the band’s second set on 3/10/18, the new video includes the band’s cover of Pink Floyd‘s Animals classic “Pigs (Three Different Ones)”, which segues into their own “Poseidon”.The “Pigs” portion of the video, sung with grit by Greg Ormont, sees drummer Alex Petropulos show off his power on the song’s scripted drum breaks, and guitarist Jeremy Schon showcase his agility with a menacing guitar solo before the jam lands abruptly in Pigeons original, “Poseidon”.

Dopapod Announces New Album ‘Emit Time’, Shares Lead Single “Numbers Need Humans” [Listen]

first_imgIn January, Dopapod officially announced their return after a yearlong absence with a headlining show on the historic stage of Port Chester, NY’s The Capitol Theatre on Saturday, April 27th, 2019.Now, the quartet has announced their forthcoming studio effort, Emit Time, due out on Friday, May 24th. Recorded at a recent session in Philadelphia, Emit Time marks the follow-up to the band’s 2017 Megagem release. The band—comprised of guitarist Rob Compa, drummer Neal “Fro” Evans, bassist Chuck Jones, and keyboardist Eli Winderman—has a deep history dating back to 2007, with over 1,000 live shows under their belt.Ahead of Emit Time‘s forthcoming release, Dopapod shared the album’s lead single, “Numbers Need Humans”, which premiered via Guitar World. “Numbers Need Humans” opens up with a funky groove out of Winderman’s corner before the quartet crashes into the song’s rockin’ main theme. Compa unleashes a series of explosive, gritty guitar solos, backed by Evans and Jones holding down a tight-knit rhythm.Compa shared his thoughts on the recent recording session with Guitar World:When I arrived at the studio for the initial recording for ‘Numbers Need Humans,’ the studio already had a Sunn head running into a closed back Mesa 412 cabinet set up and miked for me. I gave it a shot, but I really couldn’t get used to the sound of that rig. At live shows, I’m not super picky about what amps I use, but the recording studio is the one place where I’m pretty particular about that, because every little detail is painfully evident.Luckily I brought along my 1978 Fender Vibrolux that I’ve been using since I was in college. It’s had some mods done to it, including a blackface mod. The speakers in it are a Weber DT10 and a Kendrick Gold label speaker. We miked both of them and blended the sounds of both speakers. Both the intro licks of the song and the middle guitar solo are the scratch guitar tracks from that session, going into the Vibrolux. I used my 2005 Paul Reed Smith Hollowbody II, which has been my main guitar for nearly 15 years. My gain for those solos came from an Analogman King of Tone overdrive and a Maxon VOP9 overdrive. We also had the engineer add some delay to those parts during the mixing stage.When I overdub guitar parts, I like to do it all at home on my own. My recording set-up is laughably primitive, but all I really care about is that I have a sound and am in a place where I’m totally comfortable and can be myself. As long as that’s happening then I’m more likely to create good, musical results.Listen to Dopapod’s new single “Numbers Need Humans” below, and stay tuned for more information about the upcoming release.Dopapod – “Numbers Need Humans”[Video: Dopapod]You can grab your tickets to Dopapod’s comeback show at The Capitol Theatre on April 27th here.last_img read more

Professional advice from my parents

Wendy works with the editorial team to help edit the content including current news, press releases, jobs and events. She keeps … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details As the saying goes, “you can’t pick your parents,” but I am certainly glad I got the ones I did. I can never repay them for the values they have instilled in me and I strive every day to follow their wisdom in both my personal life as a mother and my professional life in the workplace. Below are some of these tips from my parents that have been invaluable to me.Don’t choose your career solely on salary. Of course your pay is an important factor when choosing your professional field. Remember to keep in mind though, on average you will spend more time at work than you will at home. Therefore, it is essential that you enjoy where you work. Yes, it is still work, but not dreading your eight-hour day makes all the difference in the world.Never forget basic professional courtesy. My dad has always told me to be respectful and considerate, even if you don’t always want to be. When receiving a message at work, always respond within one business day; your response should always be polished and courteous no matter if you’re communicating with a CEO or low-level employee.Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself. There is a difference between being overly opinionated and asserting yourself when necessary. This is something I work to continuously improve upon. It is okay to say how you feel and take part in constructive discussions. It is not inappropriate to give your opinion when it is asked for, especially when it can help others reflect and grow.Follow the golden rule. This seems like an obvious one, but it never hurts to remember it. No matter if you are having a bad day, put personal issues aside and treat coworkers how you would want them to treat you. You never know the personal struggles someone may be going through, so even the smallest kindness can brighten their day. When you are nice to someone, it will make you feel good too.last_img read more

Governor Wolf Requests Federal Disaster Assistance for January Snowstorm

first_img Blizzard 2016,  Press Release,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf has requested President Barack Obama to declare a major disaster in Pennsylvania, in order to provide financial reimbursement to municipalities in 31 counties for costs associated with the historic snowstorm that impacted the state January 22-23.“Our numbers so far show that municipal, county and state agencies spent more than $55 million to respond to this storm,” said Governor Wolf. “In many places, it wiped out an entire year’s budget for snow response and removal, and winter isn’t over yet.”The Governor’s letter represents an initial request for federal assistance, and the commonwealth will be able to request assistance for additional counties if data shows they meet the federal snow criteria.In order to qualify for federal public assistance, counties must meet specific federal criteria:a record or near-record snowfall event must occur within the county;the costs to the county and municipalities for snow removal operations during a continuous 48-hour period and any other costs for emergency protective measures must exceed the county per capita threshold of $3.56; andthe total costs of all counties meeting both criteria must exceed the state threshold of $17.9 million.In the weeks since the storm, municipal and county applicants have complied data on costs associated with storm response. Eligible expenses include, but are not limited to, costs associated with paying overtime, equipment rentals, materials, search and rescue operations, and opening and operating shelters. That data was then relayed to the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, which tracked and totaled the costs to present to the Governor.If the Governor’s request is approved, applicants can be reimbursed up to 75% of the costs incurred on eligible expenses.The counties that met both record or near record snowfall totals and county costs are: Adams, Bedford, Berks, Blair, Bucks, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Fayette, Franklin, Fulton, Huntingdon, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Mifflin, Montgomery, Northampton, Perry, Philadelphia, Schuylkill, Somerset, Snyder, Westmoreland, and York.The Governor’s request also includes the following counties that met their record or near record snowfall totals, but have not yet met their county costs: Cambria, Columbia, Montour, Northumberland, and Union. PEMA staff continues to gather data from those counties in an effort to provide them financial assistance should the Governor’s request be approved by the federal government.The overall estimated total costs that are associated with this request are $55,468,967, which exceeds the state public assistance threshold of $17,910,354. It is important to note that total costs may fluctuate slightly as applications for assistance are reviewed at both the state and federal levels.It is not known when the President will make a decision to grant or deny disaster assistance.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Governor Wolf Requests Federal Disaster Assistance for January Snowstorm February 22, 2016center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Improving equity markets softening impact of Brexit, consultants say

first_imgBoth consultants, however, agreed that ‘policy funding’ – the average coverage over the 12 months previous, and the main criterion for rights cuts – had fallen by 1 percentage point, to 100% (Mercer) or 99% (Aon Hewitt), over the period.Frank Driessen, chief commercial officer for Retirement & Financial Management at Aon Hewitt, argued that the current economic climate demanded a revaluation of pensions.“Either pensions need to be cut back, or contributions need to increase,” he said. Mercer’s Van Ek said recovering equity markets had almost made up for the initial post-Brexit losses, with developed-market equities losing 0.9% on balance but emerging-market equities returning 4.3%.He attributed the further drop in Dutch funding to falling interest rates, noting that the 30-year swap rate had fallen by 24 basis points to 0.86%.Mercer noted that yields on AAA-rated government bonds had fallen by nearly 40bps and that German 30-year bonds, for example, now generated 0.38%.“As a consequence,” Van Ek said, “some pension funds had decided to replace their long-term German bonds with interest swaps, as well as other fixed income investments, such as credit and residential mortgages.”Aon Hewitt said falling interest rates had increased pension funds’ liabilities by 4%, while their investment portfolios had also grown by 4% on balance.It added that a 1% loss on global equity had been offset by a 6% increase in bond holdings for Dutch portfolios.Last Monday, Mercer estimated that pension funds were heading for a funding drop of 5 percentage points as of the end of June, attributing 4 percentage points of that loss to the Brexit decision.At the time, equity markets were significantly down, while 30-year swap rates stood at 0.82%. Improving equity markets have largely offset the initially negative impact on Dutch pension funds of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union (EU), Mercer and Aon Hewitt have said.According to the former, one week after the referendum, the average funding of Dutch schemes has fallen by about 1 percentage point.Dennis van Ek, actuary at Mercer, estimated that, because the average Dutch coverage ratio had already dropped by 1 percentage point before the referendum, funding had fallen by 2 percentage points in total – to 96% – over the month of June.Aon Hewitt, which employs a slightly different methodology, suggested funding even remained stable – at 97% on balance – over the course of the month.last_img read more

KLM wrangles with union in court over additional contribution

first_imgPilot union VNV and Dutch airline KLM are at loggerheads after the latter unilaterally cancelled an agreement to grant full pensions indexation by covering any funding shortfalls.The airline argued at the Amsterdam court that, under the Netherlands’ new financial assessment framework (nFTK), it would have to come up with an additional €600m.It said this would jeopardise the very existence of the business, as its cash reserves would drop to just €500m.Jaap van Slooten, KLM’s lawyer, described the VNV’s approach as “reckless” and warned that any future disaster, such as a volcano eruption, could trigger redundancies and the cancellation of new plane orders. The VNV, however – citing estimates produced by the €8.2bn pension fund for pilots – claimed the airline would need to set aside no more than €115m by the end of this year.It accused KLM of exaggerating and said the company should have waited to see how much its additional contribution would have been, or whether the pension fund would have forced KLM to pay up.The Pensioenfonds Vliegend Personeel previously argued that KLM lacked an important reason to cancel the agreement.During the summary proceedings, KLM’s lawyer said the airline had been generous on pensions, having granted 10% additional indexation on top of the salary index since 2000, as well as monthly pension benefits of €10,000 on average.According to the judge hearing the case, however, the key question is whether the additional contribution falls under the collective-labour agreement (CAO) between KLM and the union.The current CAO also applies to next year and cannot be cancelled unilaterally.Because the VNV rejected the magistrate’s call for fresh negotiations, the judge will reach a verdict on the case on 27 September.last_img read more

BREAKING: HHS Reports Heavy Marijuana Use Skyrocketing

first_imgSAM 14 September 2018Family First Comment:  There are now twice as many daily or near daily marijuana users in the US than just a decade ago, according to the most comprehensive survey on drug use released today by the federal government. There are also now 8,300 new marijuana users each day, and 22% of 18 to 25 year olds are currently using the drug–the highest number for all three stats in recent memory. “Big Marijuana – just like Big Tobacco years ago – continues to glorify marijuana as a cure-all that can do little or no harm. If it wasn’t for marijuana, overall drug use in this country would be going down. Rising mental health issues, drugged driving crashes, and an increasingly stoned workforce won’t help us get ahead. We should put the brakes on marijuana legalization and start a national science-based marijuana awareness campaign similar to successful anti-tobacco campaigns.”www.SayNopeToDope.nzThere are now twice as many daily or near daily marijuana users in the US than just a decade ago, according to the most comprehensive survey on drug use released today by the federal government. There are also now 8,300 new marijuana users each day, and 22% of 18 to 25 year olds are currently using the drug–the highest number for all three stats in recent memory.“The marijuana industry is getting their wish,” said Kevin A. Sabet, Ph.D., president of Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) and a former White House drug policy adviser. “More people are using highly potent pot edibles and other items much more often, and the perception of harm for these products is plummeting. It is time we woke up as a country and put science above ideology.”The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) also found that 42% of marijuana users use the drug daily or almost daily, and that marijuana was used by more than 8 in 10 substance users. Marijuana use rose significantly among age groups 12 and up, 18 and up, and 26 and up. Use among 12 to 17 year olds was stable versus last year, though in legalized states NSDUH data show marijuana use higher on average in legalized states.“Big Marijuana – just like Big Tobacco years ago – continues to glorify marijuana as a cure-all that can do little or no harm,” said Sabet. “If it wasn’t for marijuana, overall drug use in this country would be going down. Rising mental health issues, drugged driving crashes, and an increasingly stoned workforce won’t help us get ahead.

And we’re going to do what the right thing is to keep that going,” Gross said. “We’ve got great momentum, we’re getting ready to go to the ACC. We want to make sure everything is stable. We’ve created a culture that’s a winning culture and that’s what we want to enhance.”Gross didn’t have to go to far to find his new head coach.Shafer’s son, Wolfgang, tweeted about his father’s promotion Monday.

The Free “Less is More Film Fest” Educates and Entertains on…

first_imgFacebook11Tweet0Pin0Subitted by Thurston County Solid WasteOn October 21 at 6:00 p.m., the doors of the Capitol Theater will open on a new event for the Thurston County community. The Less is More Film Fest is a chance for the South Sound to learn more about less – less impact that is. Better yet, it’s free!Turns out, America creates waste of all kinds at a nearly unprecedented rate. Plastics, textiles and even wasted food impacts our health, environment, and our communities in ways we often don’t recognize. According to ECO-360, Americans produce about ten and a half million tons of plastic waste a year, but recycle only 1-2% of it. Given that most plastic, regardless of when it was produced, still exists in the world today, you can probably guess there are a lot of unseen impacts.Thurston County Solid Waste is hosting the Less is More Film Fest to help bring education and awareness to the global impact of waste such as plastic bottles and containers. Photo courtesy: Thurston County Solid Waste.Add to this, that the average American family throws out twenty-five percent of the food they buy, and that food, in turn, is responsible for producing more than 20 percent of the country’s methane emissions, and you begin to see how important this culture of consumption really is in terms protecting our planet.Thurston County Public Works invites you to the free Less is More Film Fest, October 21, from 6:30 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. at The Capitol Theater (Olympia Film Society) on 5th Ave. in Olympia. Doors open at six, and the festival will screen films that spotlight local and national efforts to reduce our impact on the environment, and bring attention to the many ways we can make a difference.Join us for an evening of feature length and short films that will cover topics on everything from food waste to clothing recycling to living a “zero-waste” lifestyle. There will be free raffles throughout the evening (must be present to win), as well as opportunities to get involved in community efforts to reduce waste. If you’ve ever wanted to live a more sustainable life, or been intrigued by the eco-advocates who are working to lead the way, come check out the festival.

Laurie Foster: Treat Taylor with kids’ gloves

first_img Gateway to greater achievement The mere thought is disturbing, as it ignores crucial elite competition, which is a gateway to greater achievement. One can recall when the great coach, Glen Mills, took over the reins of the current phenom, Usain Bolt. He pulled him from junior activity as his performances informed that he was way past that level. For those who would replicate that type of action, be reminded that Bolt was then 18 years old and had behind him the exposure and experience of four World level events, including the 2004 Athens Olympics. Taylor, in comparison and in that context, is still a mere toddler at age 16. A respected sports analyst with panoramic insight, Earl Bailey, has a well-rehearsed mantra: “If you are good enough, you are old enough.” Sorry, ‘Bald Eagle’, not going with you on this one. History will recall times in the past when a brilliant overperformer was thrown to the wolves to disastrous effect. Although available sources are silent on the matter, this columnist remembers a situation back in 2004. Vere Technical standout, Simone Facey, blasted all in her path to a Champs 200m win in the staggering time of 22.71. The field included Anneisha McLaughlin from the camp of arch-rivals Holmwood Technical, who was the World Junior silver medallist from two years prior. Facey’s eyes and heart were firmly set on the sprint double at the Grossetto World Juniors, only a few months away. But her handlers wanted more. With the traditional top six guaranteed a seat on the flight to the Athens Olympics in that August, she was entered in the trials to run with the big girls. Suffice to say that a resultant injury made it her last race of the season. Foster’s Fairplay, to satisfy the ‘Taylor for Rio’ lobby, will say this: Put him in the junior trials. Say he runs sub-45 in the final. Given that such a performance has him in the top seven at both junior and senior levels, then include him on the Olympics relay squad. Precedence has been established, especially where there are medal prospects. Just being there should do him a world of good. [email protected] Social media is currently awash with talk of Christopher Taylor. The Calabar High School World Youth champion, with last year’s 45.27 over the 400m, is being hailed as the next great campaigner over the one-lap distance. This, despite his slender body structure, as against the traditional towers who continue to dominate the event. To counter that thought, one could argue that the Dominican Republic’s Luguelin dos Santos is making strides, but in terms of size, he too, cannot be seen as the quarter-mile stereotype. Taylor’s 4x400m relay anchor leg success of Kingston College’s Akeem Bloomfield (another giant) – with more physical development expected – has opened up other possibilities. The still-talked-about feat has catapulted the youngster into Rio Olympics territory. To facilitate that, the suggestion is that coach Michael Clarke should send him to the senior trials to contest with the big men, jostling for a place on that team. There have been ayes and nays as the point has received active consideration from many sides. Arguments in support of the former position are time-centric. His personal best from 2015, with the extra preparation and competition leading up, could improve to a 44+ clocking. In good or bad times, that ought to be sufficient for top six and an automatic booking for Rio. The naysayers acutely aware of the awesome talent come with a wider range of reasons. These all point to letting this one pass; “Give him more time to mature”, “maybe a year until the 2017 London World Championships”, they say. Some even, given a rugged road to and during Champs, cite what is itself a burnt-out word, that of ‘burnout’. To remind, he was exposed to the 200m, 400m and both 4x100m and 4x400m relays, significantly enhancing the Calabar victory cause by winning all four. Foster’s Fairplay has sympathy, with the ‘spare him’ sentiment. What strengthens the view is that several of the persons airing their opinion, whether deliberately or not, make no mention of Taylor’s likely participation in the July World Junior Championships. This would be the traditional and natural stepping stone to the senior global level, having conquered the Youth best in 2015.last_img read more

first_imgVenezuelan refugees…as Citizenship Minister acknowledges international partnersThe National Multi-Sectoral Coordinating Committee convened its last meeting for 2018 with various agencies seeking assistance to support the influx of Venezuelan refugees who settled across Region One (Barima-Waini) and other remote areas throughout the country.The International Organisation of Migration (IOM) would have collected data through its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) and this demonstrated that employment opportunities have topped the list of these migrants, along with necessary documentation for them to stay in Guyana.Nevertheless, Citizenship Minister Winston Felix pointed that the Committee is the underlying framework for managing the activities of the refugees and how materials are disbursed.He explained, “Once the Venezuelans are arriving, we will continue to work… hadn’t it been for a forum like this the information we received would have been isolated. When it is brought here, we are better able to make decisions on how best to address the issues… this Committee is central to coordinating andCitizens Minister Winston Felixmonitoring the activities of the Venezuelan migrants.  As long as they (migrants) are coming, this Committee has a job to do.”According to the Public Health Ministry, immunising all of these persons has placed an additional financial burden on an already taxed health sector to provide additional services at the level of primary healthcare delivery as well as in hospital settings.As such, calls were made for the establishment of a policy framework to tackle the migratory population and provisions to provide these services on a long-term basis.For now, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has been working with the Immigration Department to improve efficiency in terms of registration. A number of equipment such as biometric scanning devices, scanners and laptops were procured to aid immigration officers.Organisations such as Pan-American Health Organisation (PAHO) and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) continue to lend both technical and financial support public agencies to deal with issues pertaining to migrants.Just two weeks ago, the Region One Chairman, Brentol Ashely had blasted the Government for failure to live up to their assurances, since there was no feedback on the promises that were made to assist these persons.The Chairman also explained for the past weeks, supplies were only donated by independent organisations and other agencies. However, when contacted, Head of the Civil Defence Commission (CDC), indicated that they were “working” to supply materials at the earliest.The Government admitted earlier this year that immigration bodies have limited capacity in tracking immigrants after they arrive in Guyana, even though data is collected when many of them enter Guyana through the borders.last_img read more

Drunken man killed in Soesdyke/Linden highway accident

first_img…still to be identifiedAn unidentified man was on Sunday evening struck dead by an allegedly speeding car on the Soesdyke/Linden Highway.Reports are that the driver of motor car HC6634 was heading in a southerly direction when, in the vicinity of the one-mile Swan Turn, the pedestrian — shirtless and clad in a pair of long pants — attempted to cross the public road but ran into the path of the car and sustained severe injuries to his body. He allegedly was under the influence of alcohol.Rushed to the Diamond Diagnostic Centre, he was pronounced dead on arrival. His body was transported to the Lyken Funeral Home to await identification and post mortem.The 45-year-old driver, a resident of Kuru Kururu on the Soesdyke/Linden Highway, was arrested and is assisting with investigations. The breathalyser test he underwent has cleared him of driving under the influence.An eyewitness told Guyana Times that the dead pedestrian had earlier been seen imbibing at a shop in the area. From reports received, another driver had earlier spotted him attempting to cross the road as he walked along, and had reportedly stopped for him to so do. An argument had reportedly ensued between the two men.During that argument, the driver of HC 6634, who was heading toward Splashmin’s Fun Park, took the turn and slammed into the man, who was reportedly standing on the roadway. His body was reportedly flung into the air, and landed onto the windscreen of the motor car before tumbling onto the roadway.Up to late Monday afternoon, the dead man’s identification had not been determined. Investigations, however, are ongoing.last_img read more

High Court throws out AG’s jurisdictional challenge

first_imgLAA alterationsBy Shemuel FanfairAhead of the overall case regarding Bibi Shaddick’s disputation of Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan’s changes to several Local Authority Areas (LAAs), High Court Judge Justice Gino Persaud has dismissed Attorney General (AG) Basil Williams’s jurisdiction challenge on Monday.Attorney-at-Law Anil NandlallThe Judge observed that the AG’s argument that the matter should be heard via an elections petition after the November 12 Local Government Elections (LGE) are held “was not a relevant enough issue”.“The question on whether someone has been elected as a Councillor is not relevant to the issue raised by the applicant,” Justice Persaud pointed out.Williams had observed that Shaddick’s application amounted to allegations of irregularities and illegalities challenging the validity of the LGE, which have been gazetted to be held on November 12. However, in his ruling, Justice Persaud noted that no Councillor has been elected, as the case has not passed the elections stage. As such, the judge determined that the court has jurisdiction to hear “the merits of the applicant’s case”.Attorney General Basil WilliamsFollowing the ruling, the AG signalled that he would be looking at appealing the jurisdiction ruling, saying that Justice Persaud focused on certain legal arguments that were not in keeping with his case.“I will have to appeal his decision, so I could know whether he had dealt with those cases or not,” Williams told the press.In response, Nandlall, speaking with members of the media subsequently, brushed aside the AG’s intimation to appeal, saying that the court has not ruled on the substantive merits of the case. He reiterated that there could be moves to delay the case.“I have no doubt that in addition to the incompetent arguments that are being advanced, there is an agenda to stall and dilate the matter,” he stressed.However, Monday’s ruling on the preliminary matters to Shaddick’s legal suit was two-fold in nature, as Justice Persaud treated with Nandlall’s submission that the respondent, the Minister, was barred from challenging jurisdiction, since Solicitor General Kym Kyte-Thomas had “submitted to the court’s jurisdiction. Nandall harped on the fact that Kyte-Thomas agreed to the court’s timelines for the fixed-date application (FDA) hearing.Communities Minister Ronald BulkanHowever, with several legal citations, Justice Persaud opined that the court recognises the urgency of the case, and called the matter within four days of the case’s filing. “This is not a regular occurrence, and (is) probably without precedent,” the judge stressed.Justice Persaud reminded that FDA cases have to be heard within 28 days, and noted that the AG’s jurisdiction challenge he filed on behalf of Bulkan was within that time frame. On this basis, the Judge was of the view that Nandlall’s submission on the Solicitor General already submitting to jurisdiction was “fallacious, without merit, and cannot be sustained”.After the pretrial determinations, Justice Persaud ordered that the AG must file an affidavit in defence on or before October 22. The Court further ordered that both parties file written submissions on or before October 29.“I will fix a date for decision after being in receipt of all the written arguments; no orders for costs,” Justice Persaud stated.Among Shaddick’s several orders of which she petitioned the court, one is to bring the Communities Minister’s alterations into conformity with the Local Democratic Organs Act, Chapter 28:09. In so doing, she wants to have Bulkan’s orders declared null and void.Her grounds are that Bulkan failed to issue an order to identify the said boundaries under the Local Democratic Organs Act, making his actions null and void.She meanwhile said Chief Elections Officer (CEO) of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), Keith Lowenfield, went beyond his exercise of discretion in re-demarcating the existing constituency boundaries as outlined in the orders sought before the court.The writ also outlines that the purported establishment of seven NDCs without complying with the provisions of the Local Democratic Organs Act is unlawful, ultra vires, null, void and of no effect.She said, too, that Lowenfield acted without authorisation in this regard, while adding that Minister Bulkan unilaterally made changes to the number of seats in 14 LAAs.last_img read more

GOP plan: End war in Bush’s last days

first_imgThe Democrats on Friday deemed the legislation a nonstarter and underscored the difficulty Congress has in striking a bipartisan compromise on the war. What attracts Democrats has repelled Republicans and vice versa, making it impossible so far to find a middle ground. “I don’t support it at all,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. “It doesn’t do anything.” The proposal, by Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, would require that Bush change the mission of U.S. troops from combat to primarily support roles, such as training Iraqi security forces and protecting U.S. infrastructure in Iraq. His legislation would set a goal of completing such a mission transition within 15 months. If enacted immediately, that timeline would not kick in until Bush’s last couple of weeks in office. “That’s very courageous,” Reid quipped when a reporter asked him Friday about the proposal. Co-sponsors of the bill include Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Elizabeth Dole of North Carolina and Norm Coleman of Minnesota. Of the sponsors, only Voinovich is not up for re-election in 2008. In response to Reid’s rejection, a Voinovich spokesman said the senator “will continue to work for a bipartisan, nonpolitical compromise so our nation finally speaks with one voice.” Likewise, Alexander said the country is ready for a consensus on the war. “It is inexcusable for the Senate to keep lecturing Baghdad about being in a political stalemate when we continue to be stuck in our own political stalemate on Iraq,” he said in an e-mailed statement Friday.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Arnold Schwarzenegger said Tuesday that voters should decide whether to adopt physician-assisted suicide in California, while the Van Nuys Democrat who authored the bill says it’s up to lawmakers. “This is a decision that should be made by the people,” Schwarzenegger said during an appearance at the Sacramento Press Club. The governor, a Catholic, refused to disclose his personal view on doctor-assisted suicide of the terminally ill – a practice in Oregon upheld last week by the U.S. Supreme Court.

first_imgGARDAI have launched a crackdown on ‘L’ drivers on Donegal’s roads driving without qualified motorists.A number of young men appeared at Letterkenny District Court today charged with driving without a full licence.Judge Denis McLoughlin issued fines in several cases today. In one – involving a man from Termon – Garda Inspector Michael Harrison said the defendant had been accompanied by another driver when stopped by a Garda patrol, but that driver also had a provisional licence.The motorist was also found to have had no NCT and no tax.In another case a €100 fine was issued to a student who had since passed his test.The cases today are the latest before local courts following a crackdown on young motorists driving without full licences.Gardai suspect hundreds of motorists are using Donegal’s roads every day without full licences.A clampdown on certain dates in March and April this year found almost half of ‘L’ drivers were on the roads here without an experienced motorist.Assistant Garda Commissioner John O’Mahoney said at the time that the Garda would continue to focus on learner drivers to ensure greater compliance.“We especially wish to remind all learner permit-holders of their legal obligations with regard to displaying L-plates, being accompanied by qualified drivers at all times and motorway restrictions,” he said.“Driving is a skill which must be practised to improve that skill. As a learner you are doing exactly that – learning to drive.”DONEGAL GARDAI CRACKDOWN ON UNACCOMPANIED ‘L’ DRIVERS was last modified: November 12th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL GARDAI CRACKDOWN ON UNACCOMPANIED ‘L’ DRIVERSlast_img read more

Trip back in time

first_imgSIMI VALLEY – If this plane could talk, it would spin heart-wrenching tales of flying Richard Nixon home after he resigned as president in 1974 and of jetting Jimmy Carter to meet the 51 American hostages released only after he lost his bid for re-election. One of the most recognized aircraft in the world, this blue-and-white presidential jet would have the inside scoop on the favorite snacks of traveling presidents – jelly beans for Mr. Reagan, fresh strawberries for Mr. Ford. It would chuckle fondly at the stumbling Gerald Ford as he stepped off this majestic Boeing 707. And it might wipe a tear recalling the memory of the unlikely trio of former Presidents Nixon, Ford and Carter traveling together to Egypt to represent the U.S. at the funeral of assassinated President Anwar Sadat. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Air Force One, tail number 27000, served seven presidents over 28 years – from Richard Nixon to George W. Bush. This flying White House was decommissioned in 2001 and dismantled for transportation to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley. Re-assembled, it is the dramatic focal point of a spectacular three-story Air Force One Pavilion that will open to the public today. Lee F. Simmons served as a steward to Presidents Nixon and Ford on this Air Force One, as well as John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson on the first presidential jet. “It’s just magnificent to be a part of this,” Simmons said Friday at the formal dedication of the pavilion. “That’s where Haldeman sat … Ehrlichman, there,” he said of Nixon aides H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman, who became household names during the Watergate scandal. “Deja vu all over again,” said Lt. Col. Steve Chealander, Reagan’s military aide. “It’s very nostalgic. This is awesome.” Former first lady Nancy Reagan was there Friday for the dedication. “The completion of this project is the realization of Ronnie’s dream to attract individuals from all walks of life to his library so they might learn about the presidency and American leadership in the world,” she said before touring the exhibit. No. 27000 flew 445 missions and more than 1 million miles as Air Force One. President Reagan flew it the most – more than 631,778 miles in 211 journeys aboard the presidential aircraft, dubbed Air Force One only when the commander in chief is aboard. “He believed in face-to-face diplomacy,” library spokeswoman Melissa Giller said. “If you’re going to work on a problem with Mikhail Gorbachev, you meet face-to-face.” Indeed, in one memorable 1987 trip, Reagan stepped off the plane in Berlin and demanded in his resonating voice, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” “It was awesome to hear those words,” Chealander said, recalling the stop was part of a trip from Venice to Berlin to Bonn, Germany. “That was a long day.” Reagan met with staffers, took questions from reporters, conferred with heads of state and, in a lighter moment in 1985, practiced a little golf in an aisle between staffers sitting at cluttered desks. President George W. Bush spoke of Reagan’s practical jokes aboard the plane, walking cabin to cabin with a staff photographer and snapping shots of anyone aboard who was unfortunate enough to have fallen asleep. Once on the ground, he would autograph and caption the photos and send them to the clueless subject. A newer version of tail number 26000, a 707 redesigned at the request of Jacqueline Kennedy, 27000 was eventually replaced by two Boeing 747s that had been ordered by Reagan. No. 27000 was used as a back-up plane until the Air Force announced it would be decommissioned, prompting bids for it from the Reagan Library Foundation, the Smithsonian Institution and Dover Air Force Base. Smithsonian officials eventually recommended the plane go to the Reagan Library; the formal announcement came in August 2001. “It’s spectacular,” Giller said. “We’ve got artifacts and replicas from President Reagan, from his crew, from his pilot.” Visitors, beginning today, can walk through the craft, entering through the door so many presidents used and walking the length of the plane. They will see the original Air Force china and drinking glasses, blanket, pillows and original telephones. An IBM Selectric typewriter, used by reporters long before the computer era, reminds visitors how quickly time melds into history. No. 27000 sat 52 passengers, “very modest” Giller said, compared to today’s Boeing 747, which has a total capacity of 102, including 26 crew members. At the entrance to the fuselage is a small galley, then the offices of the president and first lady. The first couple shared a restroom. A six-seat conference area, a security cabin and a pressroom with seats for 10 comprise the rear. During Reagan’s administration, the seats were of beige fabric, reupholstered in blue and beige leather during the first Bush era. Nancy Reagan spoke to a silent crowd of the presidential library her husband dreamed of building. The new pavilion capped that dream. “Retirement would never be – our life’s work would be this library and all it might become.” Patricia Farrell Aidem, (661) 257-5251 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgThe St Eunans U14 Feile champions.St Eunans U14 boys have been crowned All-Ireland Division 2 Feile champions.The Letterkenny club sent the boys and girls U14 footballers off to Wicklow / Wexford & Carlow this weekend for the All-Ireland Football Féile (Peil na nÓg).This followed on from last weeks’ Hurling & Camogie Féile where the club claimed the Camogie Div. 6 Shield title and the Hurlers claimed the Div. 4 Shield title.Both football teams were slated to compete in Div. 2 for football and were being hosted by Wicklow clubs – Baltinglass for the girls and Tinahealy for the boys.The two teams set off early on Friday morning with two games to be played that evening in the south-east of the country.The U14 girls team who were beaten in the semi-final.The girls began their campaign with a good victory over Carlow team Naomh Éoin on a score of 4-05 to 2-04. They followed this up with a thrilling victory over Dublin team St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Rua by 2-04 to 1-04.On Saturday morning they took on their hosts Baltinglass and after a slow start emerged winners by 7-08 to 1-06 to seal top spot in the group.This set them up for a quarter-final meeting on Saturday evening with Currow from Kerry and the girls were excellent in their 2-08 to 1-01 victory that put them through to a semi-final meeting with Mungret St. Paul’s from Limerick.The girls couldn’t find the back of the net on this occasion and a very harsh sending off of county star Claire Doherty saw them put to the sword 2-03 to 0-05.Team managers Marty McCarron and Eunan Walsh will be delighted with the spirit shown by the girls over the weekend and but for some bad luck they could have been in the final. New York defeated Mungret St. Paul’s to claim the girl’s div. 2 crown.The U14 Boy’s under Joe Higgins, John Ellison and Pauric Daly had to make their way to south Wexford on Friday and a meeting with Gusserane O’Rahilly’s.After the long trek the lads settled in well and won by 1-07 to 1-02. Next up were Tyrone team Ardboe O’Donovan Rossa and the boy’s ran out convincing winners over their Ulster neighbours by 3-13 to 0-04 to send them up to Wicklow for a Saturday morning meeting with their hosts, Tinahealy.A close encounter saw them draw on a score of 2-09 to their hosts 3-06 but that was enough to see them top the group and set up a meeting with another Ulster team, Clann Eireann from Armagh.Once again the boys had a comfortable win, this time by 1-13 to 2-02. That meant they were headed to the Wicklow Centre of Excellence on Sunday morning and a semi-final showdown with Ratoath from Meath.Aided by a strong breeze the boy’s turned around with a 2-06 to 0-01 lead and a strong second half saw them into the final on a score of 5-08 to 0-02. In the final they took on St. Paul’s from Laois and they started strongly once again to lead by 2-09 to 0-01. They controlled the second half and claimed the All-Ireland Féile Div. 2 football crown on a final score of 2-14 to 1-02.Their win will send next year’s representatives from Donegal into Div. 1 to compete with the biggest names in the country from Dublin, Cork, Kerry, Galway, Limerick and even New York.Both teams had very enjoyable weekends where they have made new friends and we would like to thank our host clubs of Baltinglass and Tinahealy for the tremendous warmth and friendliness shown to our teams.ST EUNANS CROWNED ALL-IRELAND U14 BOYS FEILE CHAMPIONS was last modified: June 28th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalFeileSportSt Eunanslast_img read more

Micheal Naughton vows to serve community as Donegal’s newest Councillor

first_imgMicheál Naughton attended his first Donegal County Council meeting as Fianna Fáil’s successor to the late councillor Sean McEniff.The hotel manager and manager of the Donegal Ladies Senior GAA team was joined by family and friends today as he was co-opted onto the council.Naughton has begun his time as a public representative with a paraphrased quote from John F.Kennedy: “Think not what your community can do for you but what you can do for your community.” In his first address, the Laghey man expressed sympathy to the McGonigle, Battles and Cassidy families in Bruckless. A minute’s silence was held at the start of today’s council meeting for the three women who lost their lives in the tragic crash on Friday last week.“It is a privilege and honour to be elected”, he said, before paying tribute to the late Cllr Sean McEniff who served on the council for over 50 years.Michael Naughton takes his seat at Donegal County Council“As I look around the chamber I see many faces I have friendships with in business, in sport and in politics.“Together I will strive to make Donegal a place to be proud of. “The Fianna Fail party came out in strength last Sunday night and in a lively campaign I was successful.”Naughton said he intends to work closely with all councillors and TDs to achieve his goals.“We need to highlight more the proximity to Dublin that Donegal is and to make travel agents aware that Donegal town is closer that it is,” he said.He said more awareness is given to the Cliffs of Moher over Donegal’s attractions and events.Michael Naughton’s family watches as he speaks at his first meeting as Fianna Fáil’s newest representative on Donegal County Council.“The Rose of Tralee festival gets two nights on television but the Mary from Dungloe festival barely gets a mention,” Naughton said. Brexit is an immediate issue going forward, he said, as a hard border would have an effect on the farming community, tourism and culture.He thanked his wife Annette, family and friends for being there to show support.Micheal Naughton vows to serve community as Donegal’s newest Councillor was last modified: July 24th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Michael Naughtonlast_img read more

PostRank Launches New Dashboard to Track Engagement Around Blog Posts

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market On its overview page, PostRank will display standard metrics like total page views, a PostRank engagement score and, optionally, the number of Twitter followers you have. PostRank Analytics also offers a wide range of additional features, ranging from daily ‘Concierge’ emails with a summary of your blog’s engagement activity to very detailed reports about specific posts. The most interesting data can be found under the ‘analyze’ tab. Here, you can see a mashed-up view of all the posts on your blog and drill down to specific metrics for every post. PostRank aggregates data from all the major social networks and sharing sites like Twitter, Facebook, delicious, Reddit, and digg. In addition, it also uses BackType to track conversations around posts and displays traditional metrics like number of unique visitors and bounce rates from Google Analytics.Most of the info in PostRank Analytics can obviously be found for free on the Internet already, but getting an aggregate view of all of this data definitely gives you a new way to track engagement around your blog posts. PostRank Analytics is obviously not an enterprise-class social media tracking service like Radian6 or Sysyomos‘ MAP and Heartbeat, but for $9 a month, it provides a lot of value to publishers who are looking for a convenient way to track engagement around their posts across a multitude of services. frederic lardinois Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… PostRank just launched a new analytics tool that promises to give publishers a better way to track the social engagement around their content across the web. To do so, PostRank Analytics, which costs $9 per month after a free 30-day trial, combines engagement metrics its already collects from social networks with traditional analytics data from Google Analytics. Given that the majority of engagement around a blog post now happens off-site and within an hour after a post goes up, PostRank’s ability to give users a real-time view of how a story is being shared on multiple social networks can be quite useful. Setup is pretty easy – the only slightly annoying part of the registration process is that you do have to provide PostRank with a credit card to sign up for the 30-day trial. After this, you simply grant PostRank permission to access your Google Analytics account and you are good to go.

Bathroom Walls, Mold, Vapor Barriers, and Building Codes–Where’s the Love?

first_img Podcast:Air Barriers vs. Vapor BarriersHow Heat Moves Through Houses RELATED ARTICLES Will water vapor rot the walls?Between tub and shower, sinks and toilet, a bathroom has a high potential for water damage, not only from leaks of liquid water but also from water vapor that can collect inside exterior walls and condense. Vapor retarders are there to slow the diffusion of moisture, so the building inspector is off base, argues senior editor Martin Holladay.Even so, Holladay adds, vapor diffusion is rarely as big a problem as we might think. If the inspector’s ruling underscores an “incomplete understanding of building science,” it’s probably not going to have a serious practical effect. This is one battle that’s probably not worth fighting.Robert Riversong isn’t so sure the inspector is wrong. Paper facings on conventional gypsum drywall provides food for mold. Riversong notes that the tiled portion of the wall will include a Schluter-Kerdi waterproofing membrane, so removing the kraft paper may have a double benefit: reducing the chances for trapped moisture by having one rather than two vapor retarders, and removing the paper that encourages mold growth.“At least this inspector is on the right track,” he says. MULTIMEDIA Josh, a builder in Columbus, Ohio, has been hired to add a bathroom in the attic of an existing house. Although he had hoped to use cellulose insulation in exterior walls, the homeowner’s budget allowed fiberglass batts. Josh was counting on the kraft paper facing on the insulation to serve as a vapor retarder, but to his surprise the building inspector insists the paper be removed before the insulation is installed.What gives? And will the inspector’s decision increase the risk of moisture problems in the bathroom, surely one of the most humid rooms in the house?The Q&A discussion actually provided some support for the misunderstood inspector, as well as a look at materials and building techniques that will keep moisture problems at bay. CONSTRUCTION DETAILS To control bathroom moisture, use a fan and waterproofing membraneThere are really two kinds of water to worry about: the water vapor that diffuses into the wall, and the bulk water that comes from leaks, careless bathers, splashes from the sink and around the toilet.One way of controlling water vapor is to get humid air out of the bathroom before it can do any damage. A bathroom fan will take care of that. Humidistats, which measure humidity levels and turn the fan on accordingly, as well as more basic timers, are frequent suggestions for making sure the fan runs long enough to do its job.Riversong finds humidistats unreliable and recommends a switch from Energy Federation that incorporates a programmable delay for the fan. When the switch is turned off, the bathroom light goes out but the fan continues to run for up to 60 minutes. No one has to remember to use a timer because the fan operates automatically.Modern building materials will help prevent damage from liquid water. Josh was planning to use Schluter-Kerdi waterpoof membrane under ceramic tile, as well as DensArmor Plus drywall. DensArmor, made by Georgia-Pacific, is a paperless wallboard highly resistant to mold. It incorporates fiberglass mats on the front and back of the panels instead of paper, eliminating mold supporting cellulose.ADKJAC, who specializes in bathroom construction and repairs, finds most problems occur on lower areas of wetted tile, wetted joints in corners and around the tub, and in the floor around the toilet. He’s a big fan of both Schluter and DensArmor products. Combined with a coat of primer and two topcoats of latex paint, they are enough for a “perfect job.”Finally, sealing the tile grout can’t hurt. Riversong recommends siloxane or silane rather than silicone.Bottom line: Vapor diffusion and bulk water are separate issues, each of which must be addressed. As a practical matter, the removal of the vapor retarding paper layer on the fiberglass insulation shouldn’t be a huge problem. A bathroom fan with a timer and/or a humidistat should be enough to keep humidity levels down. As to bulk water, paperless drywall and a waterproofing membrane beneath the tile should do the trick. GREEN PRODUCT GUIDE DensArmor Plus Bathtub retrofitShower window retrofitInsulating behind tub with rigid foamAir sealing behind tub One problem, however, is installers used 14 1/2-in. batts instead of 15-in. wide friction-fit batts. When the paper layer is removed, it creates a higher potential for air leaks between the framing and the batts, and air leaks are capable of carrying larger amounts of moisture into wall cavities than vapor diffusion. Vapor Retarders and Vapor BarriersForget About Vapor Diffusion, Stop Air Leaks!Installing Fiberglass Right” Is kraft facing in a bathroom against the building code?The undercurrent running through the discussion is the role the inspector played. Josh decided there wasn’t much point in arguing with him about removing the insulation’s paper layer. Instead, he planned to develop some seminars for homeowners and would make sure the building inspector got his own invitation.Was the inspector justified? Holladay doesn’t think so. He suggests the key question is, Which part of the code calls for the removal of a kraft paper facing from insulation installed in bathroom walls? Without a specific provision in the code, he adds, the inspector “lacks the authority” to insist the paper be removed.Hang on, replies Riversong. The International Residential Code gives inspectors wide latitude as long as they conform to the “intent and purpose of the code.”That may be true, answers another poster, but the inspector has to start with some specific rules on bathroom insulation. He can’t interpret something that doesn’t exist. Further, many calls by inspectors have been overruled as arbitrary when challenged by homeowners or contractors.In the end, any local inspector on site has a great deal of discretion. Well-intended rulings that flout up-to-date building science are probably more frequent than builders would like to see. But at the very least, these decisions often ignite a discussion that helps educate everyone.last_img read more

Why The Future Of Software And Apps Is Serverless

first_imgEven with the rise of cloud computing, the world still revolves around servers. That won’t last, though. Cloud apps are moving into a serverless world, and that will bring big implications for the creation and distribution of software and applications.Guest author Ken Fromm is VP of Business Development at Iron.io, makers of industrial-strength cloud services for data processing and message handling. The Server BackstoryIn the pre-cloud days, developers who wanted to build an application needed to think a lot about servers. They needed to budget for them, plan for them, connect them, power them and house them. They had to buy or lease the servers, the power supplies, cabling and cooling – and then set it all up in their datacenter or in a colocation facility.Over time, the colocation facilities began taking out many parts of the equation – providing racks, power, Internet access and other key resources. Even so, dealing with provisioning, clustering, and maintaining servers required spending lots of money (capital expenditures, power, internet, cooling, security), tons of time and detailed planning (contingency, develop/test/produce, site growth, and so on). Enter The CloudIn the last two years we’ve seen a seismic shift in computing. It’s no longer “Why cloud?” or even “How cloud?” Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) has delivered dramatic improvement on cost, agility, scalability – and yes, with the right architecture, reliability. The cloud has simple removed a significant chunk of work around managing and provisioning servers.Cloud infrastructure companies like AWS, Rackspace and others can now provide an almost limitless supply of virtual machines. With no upfront costs and with just a bit of effort, developers can fire up servers with their operating system of choice, load in their applications (custom or open-source), and they’re off and running. Launching hundreds of servers and coordinating among them is a bit more work but it’s still far easier than it was just six years ago.Total cost of ownership of servers has fallen dramatically. At a Hackathon last summer, one serial entrepreneur recalled buying servers for his first company at hundreds of thousands of dollars apiece and investing a great deal of effort in their care and feeding. His second company leased its servers by the year, but still had to put in lots of hands-on effort. His third company leased server time by the month, and his current operation – a successful cloud communications company – rents servers by the hour, on demand, for pennies. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… Tags:#cloud#Server Virtualization center_img Related Posts This shift in capital outlay, planning and provisioning timeframe would have been inconceivable in the days of Internet 1.0 or even at the onset of Web 2.0. It’s no surprise that processing speeds have increased and server and memory costs have dropped. But Moore’s Law didn’t exactly cover the case of being able to rent hundreds of cores by the hour at a cost of pennies per hour and provision them through easy to use software interfaces.The Shift Isn’t OverThis shift in timeframes and pricing is still in motion. Thinking about servers in terms of hours is really just a business construct. It makes sense from a pricing standpoint and from an architectural perspective.Web app teams typically look at loads across hour-long time slices and plan to scale based on these traffic patterns.They can now autoscale or provision for more servers at particular times of day under heavy loads or if an app is growing in popularity.Moving Away From Standalone AppsBut this works only when you look at the world in terms of applications and blocks of servers to host them. The concept of an “application” in the cloud is quickly evolving.The monolithic application built on Ruby on Rails, Python and Django, or other Web app frameworks is giving way to a distributed system spread across a number of applications, processes and data stores. It’s no longer about building a “Web app.” It’s about building a distributed system of loosely coupled components in the cloud.An increasing number of applications – mobile apps and systems of connected devices, for example – aren’t based on the notion of a server-based application. There are client apps and back-end data storage, but the processing is increasingly taking place asynchronously outside of an app framework. Runtime apps are often used to process all the inputs but that’s only because mobile compute clouds and processing tiers are only now coming on the scene.When you think about sites that monitor prices in real-time across hundreds of retail sites or ones that process purchases, views, clicks, checkins and other indicators of interest to provide personalized recommendations, the processing and orchestration at the core of the application lies behind the scenes – the front-end app is just the delivery vehicleBut this changing focus doesn’t map so well into the world of applications and servers. Developers working in a distributed world are hard pressed to translate the things they’re doing into sets of servers. Their worldview is increasingly around tasks and process flows, not applications and servers – and their units of measures for compute cycles is in seconds and minutes, not hours. In short, their thinking is becoming serverless.Thinking ServerlessThe phrase “serverless” doesn’t mean servers are no longer involved. It simply means that developers no longer have to think that much about them. Computing resources get used as services without having to manage around physical capacities or limits. Service providers increasingly take on the responsibility of managing servers, data stores and other infrastructure resources. Developers could set up their own open source solutions, but that means they have to manage the servers and the queues and the loads.Multiply this effort by the number services an app might consume (task processing, message queues, SMTP servers, payment services), hosted services quickly start to look like the future of computing.Industrial-Scale Compute PowerThe classic analogy is the generation of power. The progression moved from ox-driven water pumps to water-driven mill stones to individual coal-fired factories and ultimately to industrial-scale power plants and transmission lines. This last step – the industrialization of power – transformed industry and the world. It dramatically lowered the cost of building and making things, transformed cities and homes and ushered in new inventions, services and businesses.The idea of plugging a light, a radio or a TV – or a sewing machine, lathe, or power drill – into a wall or overhanging socket – went from unheard of to transformational to taken for granted.Elastic Computing ServicesSimilarly, by plugging into an elastic computing service, developers don’t need to provision their resources based on current or anticipated loads, or put a lot of effort into planning for new projects. Just as Virtual Machines have made it easy to spin up servers to create new applications, elastic/on-demand computing services make it simple to grow.Consuming computing resources as services means that developers are not paying for resources that they’re not using. Regardless of the number of projects in production, developers using hosted services don’t have to worry about managing resources.Going serverless lets developers shift their focus from the server level to the task level. Serverless solutions let developers focus on what their application or system needs to do by taking away the complexity of the backend infrastructure.Just like cloud computing a few years ago, the serverless approach has found its most vocal adherents with startups and independent developers. One reason is affordability, another is the ability to scale quickly, and a third is not having to worry about things that aren’t strategic to their businesses. As the category matures and more developers become familiar with this new approach, it will move into larger organizations. Because it’s becoming increasing clear to everyone, the future of computing will be serverless. How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud ken frommlast_img read more

Rajasthan to purge ‘distortions’ in textbooks

first_imgAfter submission of its report by a curriculum review committee, the Congress government in Rajasthan has embarked on a project to revise school textbooks by removing “adulatory references” to Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh ideologues V.D. Savarkar and Deendayal Upadhyaya. The previous BJP regime had added chapters glorifying the RSS icons in the textbooks.Minister of State for Education Govind Singh Dotasara said here earlier this week that the review committee had made recommendations on the basis of historical facts, while the previous government had imposed its ideology on the students and neglected the contributions of freedom fighters.The social science textbook of Class X will be rewritten to include a detailed description on Savarkar’s mercy petitions to the British from the cellular jail, asking for forgiveness and depicting himself as a “prodigal son longing to the parental doors of the government”.‘Lab of Hindutva’ Mr. Dotasara said the BJP had turned the School Education Department into a “laboratory of Hindutva” and made changes in the school curriculum on the instructions of RSS. “We will teach whatever is in the history, irrespective of what the Sangh Parivar feels today,” he said.The Minister said the Congress government would remove distortions and ensure that the contribution of leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh were taught in correct perspective. “It is not correct to glorify Savarkar and Upadhyaya and describe them as great leaders,” he said.Among other changes, a picture of jauhar (self-immolation by women) will be removed from the cover of Class VIII English textbooks. Mr. Dotasara said an outdated practice, which was now prohibited by the law, should not be depicted on the book cover, as it would leave a negative impact on children at an impressionable age.New academic sessionThe curriculum review committee, comprising academic experts and historians, was appointed in February this year. It submitted its report, recommending changes in the contents of textbooks, earlier this month. The new textbooks for Classes VIII to XII will be introduced in the 2019-20 academic session, beginning in July. In the large-scale changes in textbooks made by the BJP regime, the Congress was described as a “nurtured baby of the British” and the result of the Battle of Haldighati of 1576 AD was changed to declare Maharana Pratap victorious. The textbooks also lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign policy and praised demonetisation as a drive to cleanse the country of black money.Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar, who was here on Tuesday, protested against the move and said the Congress was afflicted with the mentality of eulogising “one particular family as great”. “Congress is out to insult nationalists. It can go to any extent to glorify a single family and demonstrate [Mughal Emperor] Akbar as great by undermining our role models,” he said.last_img read more

Sikkim government to clear decks for CBI to probe corruption cases

first_imgThe Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) government will soon clear the decks for the Central Bureau of Investigation to take up corruption cases in the border State, a leader of the ruling party has said. A notification issued by the erstwhile Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) government in 2010 had mandated the Central probe agency to seek its prior consent, before taking up an investigation against any of its officers or public representatives. “It is necessary to bring the CBI as it is the only agency which can bring to book those people who had indulged in large-scale corruption in the last 25 years,” the Chief Minister’s political secretary, Jacob Khaling Rai, told reporters on Thursday. The newly formed SKM government has been searching for files related to malpractices by the previous government headed by Pawan Kumar Chamling, Mr. Rai, who is also the spokesperson of the SKM, said. “We have activated the Vigilance Department and will contact the CBI soon to probe the corruption cases in Sikkim,” Mr. Rai said. The SKM spokesperson said the SDF government had withheld permission to the CBI to take up investigations into corruption cases in Sikkim, but the new dispensation will soon open its doors to the Central agency. The SKM had pledged to bring the CBI to Sikkim in its election manifesto with the former Chief Minister Mr. Chamling being its prime target as the then Opposition party had accused the latter of indulging in embezzlement of public money during his nearly 25-year rule. The SKM had moved a writ petition in the High Court for quashing the notification, but it was dismissed. In 1976, Sikkim had conveyed to the Centre its consent about the extension of the Delhi Special Police Establishment (DSPE) Act 1946 to the northeastern State. The consent was, however, withdrawn during the second term of the then Chief Minister Nar Bahadur Bhandari. Section 6 of the DSPE Act prohibits the agency from investigating cases outside Delhi (and Union Territories) without permission from the respective State governments. However, the Supreme Court and High Courts can direct the CBI to probe any case in any State. In the recent polls to the 32-member State Assembly, the SKM won 17 Seats and the SDF 15. The lone Lok Sabha Seat was also won by the SKM.last_img read more

Yuvraj Singh admits failure but says he sees himself playing till 2019

first_imgYuvraj Singh has no qualms in conceding that he has been “failing” but the out-of-favour Indian cricketer says he won’t give up on his career at least till 2019.The 36-year-old all-rounder, who played a pivotal role in India’s 2011 World Cup triumph, has been struggling to keep a place in the side for some time now.”I would like to tell that I am failing. I still fail. I failed the last three fitness tests but yesterday I passed my fitness test. After 17 years I am still failing,” Yuvraj said.Speaking at an interactive session organised by UNICEF here as part of ‘The Power of Sports to Shape the Future of Adolescents’ campaign, the veteran said his career decisions will be solely decided by him.”I am not afraid of failure. I have gone through ups and downs. I have seen defeat and that’s what’s the pillar of success.”To be a successful man, to be a successful person in your life, you need failure and you’ve got to be defeated. That will make you a stronger person and it will take you to the next level,” he explained.Yuvraj said he is not quite sure how many people believe in him given his recent slump but he hasn’t stopped believing in himself.”I am still playing. I don’t know what format I am going to play. But I am pushing everyday as hard as I used to, may be harder than before because I am getting older. And I see myself playing cricket till 2019 and obviously take a call after that,” he said.advertisement”So I still believe in myself. As I said I don’t know how many people believe in me but I do believe in myself,” Yuvraj added.The left-hander has played 40 Tests, 304 ODIs and 58 T20 Internationals in his 17-year-career scoring 1900, 8701 and 1177 runs across the respective formats.He had recently hit the headlines for skipping Ranji Trophy matches to train at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. It was learnt that he did so to clear the ‘Yo-Yo’ fitness test, which he had failed in the past.last_img read more

UNESCO lists wrestling, reggae and raiho-shin rituals as global treasures to be preserved

first_imgBy Yoshita Singh United Nations, Nov 30 (PTI) Jamaican reggae, Georgian wrestling and Japanese rituals are among the six new elements added by UN cultural agency UNESCO to its list of “intangible heritage” for the world to treasure, improving the visibility of often little-known and understood arts traditions.The Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage is meeting until December 1 in Mauritius, inscribing new elements to its much coveted-list.From the border between Asia and Europe, in Georgia, it added Chidaoba, which combines elements of wrestling, music, dance and special garments. The practice encourages a healthy lifestyle and plays an important role in intercultural dialogue, according to UNESCO, which called its code of conduct “chivalric”, and noted that “occasionally the wrestlers leave the arena with a Georgian folk dance”.Hurling, from Ireland, also made the grade. This field game, which dates back 2,000 years, features strongly in Irish mythology. Played by two teams using a wooden “hurley” stick and a small “sliotar” ball, UNESCO said, hurling is considered as an intrinsic part of Irish culture and plays a central role in promoting health and wellbeing, inclusiveness and team spirit.A lot of music lovers were happy to learn that Jamaican reggae was also inscribed. Originating from marginalized groups, mainly in Western Kingston, the genre’s “contribution to international discourse on issues of injustice, resistance, love and humanity underscores the dynamics of the element as being at once cerebral, socio-political, sensual and spiritual,” according to UNESCO.Japan’s Raiho-shin rituals, used to admonish laziness and teach children good behavior, was another winner. Stemming from folk beliefs that deities visit communities and usher in the new year or season, local people dress in outlandish costumes and visit houses as deities. The UN cultural agency said: By performing the rituals, local people notably children have their identities moulded, develop a sense of affiliation to their community, and strengthen ties among themselves.advertisementPracticed across many areas of Jordan, As-Samer, another new inscription, consists mainly of dancing and singing. Performed on various occasions, most commonly during weddings, UNESCO explained that poetry forms an integral part of the tradition, expressing feelings of joy, peace, intimacy and empathy among those in attendance.Marking the end of the old and beginning of a new annual horse-breeding cycle, the spring festive rites of Kazakh horse breeders were also inscribed. Rooted in traditional knowledge of nature and an age-old relation between man and horse, the rites involve skills inherited from nomadic ancestors, adapted to meet present-day conditions to ensure its continued viability.An historic joint bid was made by both Koreas, to include traditional Korean wrestling known as ssirum/ssireum. Fundamentally linked to land and agriculture, UNESCO’s chief was instrumental in persuading North and South to combine cultural forces, embracing both a national sport and a very popular cultural practice.Audrey Azoulay, said the “unprecedented result” was a highly symbolic step towards inter-Korean reconciliation, that reminds us of the peace-building power of cultural heritage.UNESCO said all the listed elements are important in maintaining cultural diversity in the face of growing globalisation, without recognizing standards of excellence or exclusivity.

I want to test my game against Momota at All-England Championship: Sameer Verma

first_imgA season of highs saw him knocking on the door of world’s top 10 and India’s Sameer Verma believes a positive mindset and improved strategies will hold him in good stead at the All-England Championship starting March 10.Sameer came out of the shadows of his illustrious colleagues last year when he reached the knockout stage of the World Tour Finals as a qualifier, riding on his title run at Swiss Open, Hyderabad Open and Syed Modi International at Lucknow.Two of these titles — Swiss Open and Syed Modi — were Super 300 events and Sameer, who had reached the finals of Hong Kong Super Series in 2016, hopes to achieve his dream of winning a higher level tournament when he steps out at the Arena Birmingham for the All England Championship.”I want to win a big tournament and I want it to be All England,” Sameer told PTI in an interview.The 24-year-old will open his campaign against former world champion Viktor Axelsen.”I have lost twice to him [Viktor Axelsen] but I am not too worried. I played him around 7-8 months back. At that time, I was not at this level. I think I am much better prepared to take him on,” said Sameer.”My mindset and strategy have improved a lot now. I can’t tell about the results, I am not thinking about them but I feel I’m best prepared for the All England this time.”Sameer, who had finished a pre-quarterfinalist in the 2016 All England, has played Axelson only twice in the past — the 2018 Indonesia Open and 2011 World Junior Championship.advertisementHe reached a career-high ranking of world No.11 this January after a stellar run in 2018 and Sameer says he has the self-belief to break into the top 10.”If I would have won the World Tour Final or reached the finals, I would have broken into top 10. The loss against Shi Yuqi is still in my mind, I guess it will only go once I win something big. But I have the idea now, I know I can be in that top 10,” Sameer said.The youngster from Madhya Pradesh had lost 12-21, 22-20, 21-17 to World no 2 Shi Yuqi of China in the semifinals after holding the match point in the second game.Asked to name one player he would want to face, Sameer said: “I want to play Kento Momota. I had beaten him at Swiss Open but I lost to him at the World Tour Finals and I want to test my game against him, compete against him.”With both the players placed in separate halves of the draw, the only way they can face at the All England is if they reach the finals.It took multiple injuries spread over seven years for Sameer to realise that he needs to take care of his body instead of chasing results and ranking.With a hectic schedule ahead, Sameer said focusing on mind and body will remain his aim this season.”I think I have cared a lot for my body last year. The physios were with me in tournaments also, so it helped. You also have to take care of the diet. Nutrition is something I need to think of as it also helps in recovery,” he said.”Results in tournaments don’t matter, because you might not perform in 2-3 events, but they will come eventually. Last year, I won the Swiss Open and the Hyderabad Open but I didn’t do well in all events, so I know I can do better.”The Olympic qualification period starts from April 29 and the BWF rankings list, which would be published on April 30 next year, will decide the spots for the 2020 Tokyo Games.Sameer said he would look to avoid thinking about the Olympics as it can create unnecessary pressure during the qualification period.”…you can think of it as a normal tournament and not take any pressure, and stay stress free. That would be the way I would want to think because otherwise, it will affect my performance,” Sameer said.Also Read | No information about flight tickets ahead of All England.

15 days agoTrent Alexander-Arnold open to playing in Liverpool midfield

first_imgTrent Alexander-Arnold open to playing in Liverpool midfieldby Paul Vegas15 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveTrent Alexander-Arnold says he’s open to playing in Liverpool’s midfield.The 21-year-old right-back grabbed 12 assists last season, the most ever by a defender in a single Premier League season.And after modelling his game on Reds legend Steven Gerrard, Alexander-Arnold would be open to moving further forward for Jurgen Klopp’s side.”Obviously I’m a defender first and foremost, then I want to try and help the team create chances,” Alexander-Arnold said on Wednesday. “For now the manager has decided I’m a right back. That’s where I’ll play. I’m really not fussed where I play. I just want to play football.”If a manager decides to use me in midfield, or as a centre-back or a striker then that’s where I’ll play.”He added: “[I modelled myself on] Gerrard, really. Everything about his game I always admired. I always studied him and wanted to be like him.”It’s maybe not that important to compare because at a young age, you haven’t achieved the things those types of players have. It’s difficult to say whether you will or won’t. Who knows? “For now, it’s about having an open mind and wanting to achieve those types of levels, wanting to be those types of players, wanting to reach the levels they’ve reached. “Being regarded in the same bracket as them is something the best players want.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Des accusations en vertu de la loi sur la faune entraînent des

first_imgLes efforts du gouvernement provincial visant à aborder la chasse illégale ont entraîné la condamnation de quatre hommes de la région de Chéticamp. Les déclarations de culpabilité découlent d’une opération d’infiltration effectuée par le ministère des Ressources naturelles sur une période de 14 mois dans trois comtés afin d’aborder les activités de braconnage. Les hommes ont récemment plaidé coupable à 32 chefs d’accusation en vertu de la loi sur la faune (Wildlife Act) et de la loi sur la protection des aires de nature sauvage (Wilderness Areas Protection Act). « J’espère que cette enquête et les condamnations subséquentes dissuaderont les personnes qui ont tendance à enfreindre les lois sur la protection de la faune, sur la chasse sécuritaire et sur la protection des aires de nature sauvage », a dit Charlie Parker, ministre des Ressources naturelles. Les condamnations incluent des amendes d’une valeur totale de 17 600 $, la perte de l’équipement de chasse et la suspension des permis de chasse pendant cinq ans. Richard Claude Aucoin, 38 ans, a été reconnu coupable pour six chefs d’accusation et a reçu une amende de 5 849 $; Richard Bruce Fraser, 53 ans, a reçu une amende de 4 237 $ pour sept chefs d’accusation; Patrick John Timmons, 41 ans, a reçu une amende de 6 792 $ pour 16 chefs d’accusation et Joseph Chester Leblanc, 53 ans, a reçu une amende de 740 $ pour trois chefs d’accusation, y compris la possession illégale de chevreuils. M. Aucoin, M. Fraser et M. Timmons ont tous dépassé la limite de prise pour le chevreuil, et M. Timmons a également été reconnu coupable de chasse illégale à l’orignal et au chevreuil sans bois. « Le personnel d’application des lois a fait un travail remarquable dans le cadre de cette enquête, et a eu un impact important sur le braconnage dans la province, a dit Tony Rodgers, directeur général de la Nova Scotia Federation of Anglers and Hunters. Nous espérons que ce cas transmettra un message clair que ce type d’activité ne sera pas toléré. » L’enquête fructueuse et les condamnations subséquentes ont été possibles grâce à l’aide du public. « Ce cas démontre que l’aide du public, y compris les chasseurs, est nécessaire pour permettre aux agents de protection de la nature d’aborder les crimes liés à la faune, a dit John Mombourquette, directeur de l’application des lois au ministère des Ressources naturelles. L’information opportune a été un facteur important dans ce cas et nous a permis de déployer nos efforts et nos ressources dans les régions appropriées. » On encourage le public à signaler les infractions aux lois sur la protection de la faune et des autres ressources naturelles en composant le 1-800-565-2224 ou en envoyant un courriel à l’adresse [email protected]last_img read more

The woman in Wegener’s print is effortlessly seductive, comfortable in her skin and the clothes that adorn her – that is exactly how I want the women who wear my pieces to feel.”Unabashedly feminine in design, each piece is tailored to flatter and echo the delicate curves of the female form. The collection combines the muted blush tones from Wegener’s print with contrasting black and forest green to project a soft but bold look. Watercolour brush stroke prints and subtle hand-painted florals add dimension to each piece. In tune with the subtle erotica of 1914 Paris, the collection weaves a story of revealing and concealing one’s body – a coy act to keep just enough hidden to pique the curiosity of what lies beneath. Fabrics such as silk charmeuse, netting, and Italian jersey evoke an era of fashionable and timeless femme fatales.Looks from the Miriam Baker Fall 2017 collectionImages courtesy of Miriam BakerRunway images will be available following the show.Hashtag: #MiriamBakerTwitter: @Miriam_Baker_Instagram: @Miriam_Baker_Facebook: MiriamBakerDesigns Advertisementlast_img read more

The Saints Have The Best Rookie Class This Century

Unsurprisingly, New England’s four draft picks, the fewest in the league, produced the least value for their team in 2017. Cincinnati9.0– Chicago11.5– Seattle7.9– Kansas City8.4– Indianapolis7.2– The Saints leaned on rookies more than any other teamShare of each team’s Approximate Value created by their draft picks, 2017 Buffalo10.8– New York Jets9.9– Philadelphia4.5– Minnesota8.1– Pittsburgh8.7– What’s also clear from the table above is that leaning heavily on rookies is more likely a sign of turmoil than success, as it could suggest that teams are rebuilding or that their veterans are riddled with injuries. The five teams ranked just behind the Saints in percent of team AV contributed by rookies — the 49ers, Browns, Texans, Bears and Giants — combined for only 18 wins, or 3.6 apiece.Going back to 2000, the 2017 Saints class is only surpassed by the Dallas Cowboys’ excellent 2016 draft class — headlined by Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott — in terms of total value produced during their rookie seasons. Even the 2010 Patriots’ haul, which featured Rob Gronkowski and Devin McCourty, doesn’t compare.And the Saints only had seven picks in 2017, compared with nine for the Cowboys in 2016 and 12 for the Patriots in 2010. Indeed, the Saints’ 6.1 AV per pick among draftees in their rookie year is the best of any team since at least the 2000 draft. Detroit10.3– Dallas5.6– Cleveland14.7– TeamPercent After three straight years of finishing 7-9, the New Orleans Saints seemed headed to another year of mediocrity when they began the season 0-2. But since Week 3, when New Orleans routed a 2-0 Carolina Panthers team on the road, the team has peeled off 12 wins in 15 games, including another win over the Panthers in the wild card round last Sunday.And yet there’s reason to believe the franchise revival didn’t begin in late September. It began in April, at the NFL Draft.There are lots of reasons for the Saints’ success this season — including the ageless Drew Brees and the historically good running back duo he’s been handing the ball off to — but the team’s terrific rookie class is perhaps the driving force behind it all. The Saints had just seven draft picks in the 2017 NFL draft, slightly less than the NFL average of 7.9 picks per team, and nearly every one of the picks can be viewed as either a solid addition or a huge success.Cornerback Marshon Lattimore, taken 11th overall, has helped revitalize a defense that last year ranked as the second worst in the league in terms of points allowed. Third-round running back Alvin Kamara has accumulated more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage while leading the NFL with 6.1 yards per carry. Thanks in no small part to a number of ridiculous highlight plays like Kamara’s juggling touchdown and Lattimore’s butt interception, the duo were both named to the Pro Bowl and are favorites for offensive and defensive rookie of the year.Even drafting just one of these two would be about enough to qualify a draft class as a success, but the Saints didn’t stop there. Tackle Ryan Ramczyk, who was taken 32nd overall after New Orleans traded Brandin Cooks to the New England Patriots for that pick, has played every offensive snap this season. Second-rounder Marcus Williams started 15 games and made four interceptions at safety while the remaining picks — linebacker Alex Anzalone, edge rusher Trey Hendrickson and DE Al-Quadin Muhammad — have all contributed to various degrees.Put it all together, and the Saints not only had the top draft class of any team in 2017 but one of the best this century. To show this, I used Pro-Football-Reference.com’s Approximate Value (AV) metric.1You can see more detail on how AV is calculated here. AV is “an attempt to put a single number on the seasonal value of a player at any position from any year.” Obviously there’s no perfect way to measure the contributions of an offensive tackle relative to a middle linebacker, but this metric allows us to at least estimate value of every player and compare them regardless of position. Comparing the total AV of every team’s rookies shows just how well the Saints drafted in 2017 relative to the rest of the league. Baltimore4.5– Miami7.1– Source: Pro-Football-Reference.com Arizona8.2– Atlanta2.7– The Saints have already won a playoff game for the first time since 2013, and they are now two wins away from going to their second Super Bowl in franchise history. If they don’t get there this year, the team’s 2017 rookie class may give them a fighting chance at another title in the handful of years before Drew Brees’s storied career comes to a close.Check out our latest NFL predictions. read more

Eldorado to acquire Integra Gold getting a Canadian operation

first_imgEldorado Gold Corp has entered into a definitive agreement with Integra Gold Corp, pursuant to which Eldorado has agreed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Integra that it does not currently own, by way of a plan of arrangement.Integra’s principal asset is the Lamaque project near Val-d’Or, Quebec. Lamaque hosts an NI 43-101 indicated resource of 5.1 Mt at a grade of 9.13 g/t Au and an inferred resource of 3.5 Mt at a grade of 7.94 g/t Au (5.0 g/t cutoff)1. A PEA was completed in February 2017 that envisions a high-grade underground operation producing 123,000 oz/y of gold at all-in sustaining costs of $634/oz over 10 years. Integra is currently in the process of advancing underground ramp development to facilitate underground exploration and completion of a bulk sample.Integra owns the Sigma mill (pictured) which is well located to process the Lamaque ore.George Burns, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eldorado Gold, stated, “The company has been following Integra’s progress at Lamaque over the last 18 months and commend their team for the accomplishments to date. From previous experience of building and operating gold mines in Canada, I am excited about Eldorado’s entry into the Eastern Abitibi region of Canada. With our current balance sheet strength post the sale of our Chinese assets, this acquisition represents a use of the proceeds complementing our existing portfolio of high quality, low cost assets.”Benefits to Eldorado:Adds a high quality development project that has the potential to add meaningful near-term production and cash flow with modest upfront capitalEstablishes an operating presence in Canada and diversifies the operating portfolio into one of the most productive mining camps in the worldMaintains the flexibility to fund its development pipelineIncome tax and G&A synergies with the addition of a future mining operation in CanadaBoth companies’ Boards of Directors have determined that the proposed transaction is fair to their respective shareholders and in the best interests of their respective companies based on a number of factors, including fairness opinions received from their respective financial advisors. Each company’s Board of Directors approved the terms of the proposed Arrangement and the Integra Board of Directors unanimously recommends that its shareholders vote in favour of the transaction.Eldorado is a leading low cost gold producer with mining, development and exploration operations in Turkey, Greece, Serbia, Romania and Brazil. Its success to date is based on a low cost strategy, a highly skilled and dedicated workforce, safe and responsible operations, and long-term partnerships with the communities where it operates.last_img read more

Un contact avec les extraterrestres avant la fin du siècle

first_imgUn contact avec les extraterrestres avant la fin du siècle ?Au cours du Forum Euroscience, qui s’est déroulé à Dublin du 11 au 15 juillet, une célèbre physicienne britannique a évoqué la nécessité, pour les gouvernements, de mettre au point un protocole de contact avec une éventuelle civilisation extraterrestre. Un contact qu’elle estime possible dans le siècle à venir.  “Si nous suspectons la présence d’une vie intelligente quelque part, nous ferons-nous connaître d’elle ou pas ? Il existe d’intéressantes questions, comme : qui avertir en premier ? La Presse, le Premier ministre, le Pape… ? Nous devrions commencer à y penser maintenant”. C’est ce qu’a déclaré la physicienne Jocelyn Bell Burnell, de l’Université d’Oxford, au cours de l’Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) qui s’est tenu cette année à Dublin en Irlande. Une manifestation organisée par Euroscience, l’Association Européenne pour la Promotion de la Science et de la Technologie.Alors que les chercheurs restent encore divisés sur la question de l’existence d’extraterrestre et la possibilité de les contacter, cette scientifique elle est beaucoup plus confiante. “Je suspecte que nous allons avoir des signes d’une vie ailleurs, peut-être même d’une vie intelligente, durant le siècle qui vient”, a t-elle estiméreconnaissant que ce ne sera toutefois surement pas dans les années qui viennent. “[Cependant,] rien ne peut voyager plus vite que la vitesse de la lumière. Donc, nous parlons probablement de ‘conversations’ qui prendront 50 ou 100 ans aller”, a t-elle ainsi précisé. Une étude menée par la Royal Society auprès de 2.000 adultes britanniques avait montré que 44% d’entre eux croient à l’existence d’une vie extraterrestre, et qu’un tiers estime qu’il faudrait la rechercher activement pour entrer en contact avec. En décembre dernier, d’ailleurs, l’Institut SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) a annoncé que son programme de recherche de vie extraterrestreallait bientôt reprendre après avoir été suspendu pendant plusieurs mois. Une reprise devenue possible grâce à plus de 200.000 dollars de dons faits en ligne et ajoutés à un fonds financé par l’U.S. Air Force.Une vie extraterrestre qu’il ne vaudrait mieux pas rencontrer ?

Estimant que nous faisons aujourd’hui tout ce qui est possible pour éviter le contact avec cette vie potentielle, celui-ci a suggéré que si de telles créatures arrivaient sur Terre, ce serait pour en dérober les ressources. “Nous avons simplement à nous regarder nous-mêmes pour voir à quel point la vie intelligente peut se développer en quelque chose que nous ne voudrions pas rencontrer. Si des extraterrestres venaient nous rendre visite, l’issue serait semblable à celle survenue lorsque Christophe Colomb a débarqué en Amérique et que cela a mal tourné pour les natifs américains”, a t-il estimé cité par le Daily Mail.Le 17 juillet 2012 à 09:37 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Alaskans grapple with damage

first_imgANCHORAGE, Alaska — Life was beginning to return to normal Monday in Alaska following the powerful earthquake near Anchorage, but people nervous about aftershocks were still grappling with damage that closed public buildings and schools, clogged roads and knocked homes off foundations.Some residents went back to work. But state transportation officials again urged people who live north and south of Anchorage to take the day off or work from home to reduce traffic.Rockfalls were still occurring along cliff-lined Seward Highway, while major repairs were underway on hard-hit Glenn Highway, the main road leading north of the city, Department of Transportation spokeswoman Meadow Bailey said.“We don’t want the commute to be frustrating because people will experience delays,” she said.Residents still jittery from the 7.0 quake on Friday have been rattled even further by more than 1,700 aftershocks. A dozen have had magnitudes of 4.5 or greater.“Anything that moves, you’re on your last nerve,” said Anchorage resident Lyn Matthews, whose home sustained substantial structural damage, including a sunken foundation.last_img read more

(WSVN) – A community is on high alert after, a Deerfield Beach resident said, he was followed by a thief who managed to break into his pickup truck.The victim, Bill Dobellear, said he had just returned home at the time of the close encounter, but he believes he’s not the only one who has been targeted within his community.“This is not the first time we’ve been broke into here,” Dobellear told 7News. “Typically, it’s in the middle of the night, breaking a window, and this guy ducked into my truck and knew sort of right where to look, so it seemed.”Dobellear said he was coming back from the airport on Sunday and was in the process of unpacking his car, and that’s when, he said, the crook followed him into his neighborhood and took advantage of the car being unlocked.“Grabbed my wallet, all my I.D., credit cards, some cash that I had from my trip and took off,” Dobellear said.Dobellear’s home surveillance footage captured a silver car driving by the home. Moments later, it is seen stopping nearby. The trunk of the silver car was then popped open and the burglar ran over to Dobellear’s pickup.The video caught everything, as the burglar opened up the driver’s side door of the pickup and rummaged around before fleeing on foot. last_img read more

Here’s how to clean it Easy does it with the leather. James Martin/CNET Before you start complaining about your new titanium Apple Card losing some of its luster, Apple wants you to know up front that, yes, it’s possible to clean it wrong. If for some reason you like to clean things with leather, don’t.Apple posted a support page on Wednesday that explains the proper way to clean and store your new credit card. The tech giant recommends using a microfiber cloth slightly dampened with isopropyl alcohol to clean off stains. Window and other household cleaners should be avoided, along with fabrics such as leather and denim, because they “might cause permanent discoloration that will not wash off.” Available via the Apple Wallet app on the iPhone 6 or later running iOS 12.4, Apple’s credit card is managed entirely via the Wallet app. You can sign up for the Card by tapping the “+” icon in the upper right of the app. Designed to be used with Apple Pay, users can also request a physical titanium card free of charge through the app as well. After doing a soft, invite-only launch earlier this month, Apple on Tuesday announced that it’s expanding applications for its credit card to anyone in the US who’s interested. The iPhone maker teamed up with Goldman Sachs and Mastercard for the new credit card.Call Apple’s cleaning and storage tips a pre-emptive strike of sorts to avoid a repeat of 2010’s Antennagate, in which the iPhone 4’s stylish stainless-steel frame that wrapped around the device and housed the phone’s antennas reduced the device’s signal strength when held in a certain manner. Apple’s initial response amounted to “You’re holding it wrong” but eventually apologized and said owners could return their handsets if they wanted to.Apple’s suggestions for storing the card are pretty familiar to anyone who’s ever had a credit card; keep the card away from other credit cards, magnets and abrasive objects such as loose change or keys.And remember, don’t wipe the thing on your jeans or leather jacket.Originally published Aug. 21.Update, Aug. 22: Adds details of Apple partners for the credit card.center_img Apple Share your voice • Tags Apple iPhone 6 Aug 31 • Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint: Choose the best 5G carrier Comments Mentioned Above Apple iPhone 6 (16GB, silver) See it Applelast_img read more

The Top10 Alaska Books And Tons More To Add To Your Reading

first_imgBefore this week’s Talk of Alaska about the best Alaska-based books, we opened up voting to the listeners to get their input into what the top-10 Alaska books should be.We received tons of feedback and compiled a full list, which you can find here.Here are the top-10 results based on online voting, comments, emails, social media, and calls we have received…starting with #10:10) Shadows on the Koyukuk: An Alaskan Native’s Life along the River (Sidney Huntington)In his dramatic autobiography, Alaskan elder Sidney Huntington, half-white, half-Athabascan, recounts his adventures, tragedies, and ultimate success. 9) One Man’s Wilderness: An Alaskan Odyssey (Richard Proennecke)This best-selling memoir from Richard Proenneke’s journals and with firsthand knowledge of his subject and the setting, Sam Keith has woven a tribute to a man who carved his masterpiece out of the beyond.  To live in a pristine land unchanged by man . . . to roam a wilderness through which few other humans has passed . . . to choose an idyllic site, cut trees by hand, and build a log cabin. . . to be self-sufficient craftsman, making what is needed from materials available…to be not at odds with the world, but content with one’s own thoughts, dreams and company.   Thousands have had such dreams, but Richard Proenneke lived them. This book is a moving account of the day-to-day explorations and activities Dick carried out alone….alone in the wilderness…and the constant chain of nature’s events that kept him company.8) The Firecracker Boys (Dan O’Neil)In 1958, Edward Heller, father of the H-bomb, unveiled his plan to detonate six nuclear bombs off the Alaskan coast to create a new harbor. However, the plan was blocked by a handful of Eskimos and biologists, who succeeded in preventing massive nuclear devastation potentially far greater than that of the Chernobyl blast. An unprecedented account of one of the most shocking chapters of the Nuclear Age. 7) The Snow Child (Eowyn Ivey)Alaska, 1920: a brutal place to homestead, and especially tough for recent arrivals Jack and Mabel. Childless, they are drifting apart–he breaking under the weight of the work of the farm; she crumbling from loneliness and despair. In a moment of levity during the season’s first snowfall, they build a child out of snow. The next morning the snow child is gone–but they glimpse a young, blonde-haired girl running through the trees.This little girl, who calls herself Faina, seems to be a child of the woods. She hunts with a red fox at her side, skims lightly across the snow, and somehow survives alone in the Alaskan wilderness. As Jack and Mabel struggle to understand this child who could have stepped from the pages of a fairy tale, they come to love her as their own daughter. But in this beautiful, violent place things are rarely as they appear, and what they eventually learn about Faina will transform all of them.6) Two Old Women (Velma Wallis)Based on an Athabascan Indian legend passed along for many generations from mothers to daughters of the upper Yukon River Valley in Alaska, this is the suspenseful, shocking, ultimately inspirational tale of two old women abandoned by their tribe during a brutal winter famine.Though these women have been known to complain more than contribute, they now must either survive on their own or die trying. In simple but vivid detail, Velma Wallis depicts a landscape and way of life that are at once merciless and starkly beautiful. In her old women, she has created two heroines of steely determination whose story of betrayal, friendship, community and forgiveness “speaks straight to the heart with clarity, sweetness and wisdom.”5) Two in the Far North (Margaret Murie)This enduring story of life, adventure, and love in Alaska was written by a woman who embraced the remote Alaskan wilderness and became one of its strongest advocates. In this moving testimonial to the preservation of the Arctic wilderness, Mardy Murie writes from her heart about growing up in Fairbanks, becoming the first woman graduate of the University of Alaska, and marrying noted biologist Olaus J. Murie. So begins her lifelong journey in Alaska and on to Jackson Hole, Wyoming where along with her husband and others, they founded The Wilderness Society. Mardy’s work as one of the earliest female voices for the wilderness movement earned her the Presidential Medal of Freedom.4) Where the Sea Breaks its Back (Corey Ford)Author Corey Ford writes the classic and moving story of naturalist Georg Whlhelm Steller, who served on the 1741-42 Russian Alaska expedition with explorer Vitus Bering. Steller was one of Europe’s foremost naturalists and the first to document the unique wildlife of the Alaskan coast. In the course of the voyage, Steller made his valuable discoveries and suffered, along with Bering and the cred of the ill-fated brig St. Peter, some of the most grueling experiences in the history of Arctic exploration. First published in 1966, Where the Sea Breaks Its Back was hailed as “among this country’s greatest outdoor writing” by Field & Stream magazine, and today continues to enchant and enlighten the new generations of readers about this amazing and yet tragic expedition, and Georg Steller’s significant discoveries as an early naturalist.3) Coming into the Country (John McPhee)Coming into the Country is an unforgettable account of Alaska and Alaskans. It is a rich tapestry of vivid characters, observed landscapes, and descriptive narrative, in three principal segments that deal, respectively, with a total wilderness, with urban Alaska, and with life in the remoteness of the bush.Readers of McPhee’s earlier books will not be unprepared for his surprising shifts of scene and ordering of events, brilliantly combined into an organic whole. In the course of this volume we are made acquainted with the lore and techniques of placer mining, the habits and legends of the barren-ground grizzly, the outlook of a young Athapaskan chief, and tales of the fortitude of settlers—ordinary people compelled by extraordinary dreams. Coming into the Country unites a vast region of America with one of America’s notable literary craftsmen, singularly qualified to do justice to the scale and grandeur of the design.2) The Raven’s Gift (Don Rearden)John Morgan and his wife can barely contain their excitement upon arriving as the new teachers in a Yup’ik Eskimo village on the windswept Alaskan tundra. But their move proves disastrous when a deadly epidemic strikes and the isolated community descends into total chaos. When outside aid fails to arrive, John’s only hope lies in escaping the snow-covered tundra and the hunger of the other survivors–he must make the thousand-mile trek across the Alaskan wilderness for help. He encounters a blind Eskimo girl and an elderly woman who need his protection, and he needs their knowledge of the terrain to survive. The harsh journey pushes him beyond his limits as he discovers a new sense of hope and the possibility of loving again.1) Ordinary Wolves (Seth Kantner)In the tradition of Jack London, Seth Kantner presents an Alaska far removed from majestic clichés of exotic travelogues and picture postcards. Kantner’s vivid and poetic prose lets readers experience Cutuk Hawcly’s life on the Alaskan plains through the character’s own words — feeling the pliers pinch of cold and hunkering in an igloo in blinding blizzards. Always in Cutuk’s mind are his father Ab,; the legendary hunter Enuk Wolfglove, and the wolves — all living out lives on the unforgiving tundra. Jeered and pummeled by native children because he is white, Cutuk becomes a marginal participant in village life, caught between cultures. After an accident for which he is responsible, he faces a decision that could radically change his life. Like his young hero, Seth Kantner grew up in a sod igloo in the Alaska, and his experiences of wearing mukluks before they were fashionable, eating boiled caribou pelvis, and communing with the native tribes add depth and power to this acclaimed narrative.last_img read more

first_imgUN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar Yanghee Lee. Photo: UNB UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar Yanghee Lee will arrive in Dhaka on Friday on a 10-day visit to meet Rohingyas in various locations of Cox’s Bazar, reports UNB.Lee bemoaned that the government of Myanmar continues to deny her access despite the call by the Human Rights Council for Myanmar to cooperate with her mandate, according to a message UNB received from Geneva on Thursday.She is determined to reach out as much as possible to victims of human rights abuses in Myanmar who are located elsewhere and other locations in order to learn more about their experiences to understand better the human rights situation in Myanmar.The Special Rapporteur is planning to spend several days in Dhaka meeting UN and government officials and then travel to Cox’s Bazar where she intends to meet UN agencies, the humanitarian and protection sector, health and GBV actors, NGOs and government officials.She also intends to visit various other locations, including Bashan Char Island.Following her visit to Bangladesh, the human rights expert will issue an end-of-mission statement and share her findings when she presents a report to the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly in October 2018.A press conference will be held at the end of the Special Rapporteur’s visit on 8 July in a city hotel.Yanghee Lee was appointed by the UN Human Rights Council in 2014 as the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar.last_img read more

Fire Emblem Awakening is easily the best Fire Emblem to date

first_img 1 2 3 Though it wasn’t the first game in the genre, Fire Emblem was indeed one of the first, and is responsible for popularizing the strategy role-playing game. The first entry in the series, Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, was released way back in 1990, but the series didn’t see a stateside release until 2003 on the Game Boy Advance, which was the seventh entry in the series. Since then, most — not all, unfortunately — entries in the series have received an English language release. Though usually well-made and extremely fun and addicting (if you dig the genre, that is), the series evolved very slowly, similar to another Nintendo stalwart, Pokémon. The newest entry in the series and the first 3DS iteration, Fire Emblem: Awakening, makes a giant evolutionary leap from past entries.For the uninitiated, most strategy role-playing games (SRPGs) have gameplay quite similar to the mechanics found in Fire Emblem. You control individual units that are spread around a field, and have to use them to defeat an opposing force. However, whereas a classic JRPG has characters line up on either side of the screen without any sort of movement involved, an SRPG usually turns the field into a grid, and characters have to move around said grid, positioning themselves to attack opponents based on the range of their weapons. If you have ever played a Final Fantasy Tactics, Shining Force, or even an Advanced Wars, you have Fire Emblem to thank.Developed by Intelligent Systems since roughly the dawn of time (1990) FE stories have always been entertaining and complex, but have largely been the same. A story about some sort of royalty getting into some sort of war with another kingdom or two, which it turns out was being controlled by some dark dragon or demon the whole time. As fond of FE as some of us may be, it’s difficult to, for example, make fun of Mario for having to fight Bowser ad infinitum when a large portion of FE games feature stories startlingly similar to one another. Luckily, the FE writing (at least since the series’ first US release) has been above par — so while you’re entrenched in yet another medieval war (with some magical element) between kingdoms and then ultimately a demon or dragon, reading through it all has always been a pleasant experience. That is no different this time around.The core gameplay also remains unchanged from previous installments. You select one of your many units — which are played by individual characters with their own stories, stats, skills, fighting styles, strengths, and weaknesses — then individually move them toward or away from an enemy or some other objective on the map, in the hopes of either attacking or defending, fleeing, recruiting a new character, talking to locals, or simply buying and selling items from a shop. Each successful attack (doesn’t miss the target) gains the attacker experience points, which are used to advance to the next level, and ultimately promote to an advanced character class that opens up new skills, stats, and equipment.What always set FE apart from most SRPGs is that the game employs a perma-death system; once a character dies in battle, they are gone forever, leaving you to move on through the story without any of the deceased character’s input, or reload from the save before the fatal mission took place. This always gave FE an edge, as it makes you take your time with your characters and really analyze your next move — an ideal reaction for genre that begins with the word “strategy.” This notion also makes you care more about your characters, as you’re putting a lot of thought into their existence, whereas in other SRPGs you can just cast a spell or use an item to resurrect characters so you don’t put as much effort into keeping them alive. Perhaps because the FE series has never quite been a killer app due to its somewhat hardcore strategic perma-death gameplay, Intelligent Systems has offered a Casual Mode with the game, where characters only get temporarily removed from a battle if they die, rather than removed from the game. Luckily for longtime FE  fans, Classic Mode and all of its perma-death glory remains, and you simply select which mode you’d prefer when starting a new campaign.This is where Fire Emblem: Awakening begins to diverge from the usual FE formula, and ends up as the best entry to date.last_img read more

Supercomputer Titan to get worlds fastest storage system

first_img © 2013 Phys.org Titan is also a green powerhouse (Phys.org) —Officials at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have announced the selection of the Spider II data storage and retrieval system from DataDirect Networks (DDN) to replace the existing system on the Titan supercomputer. They say it will give Titan the fastest such system in the world. Explore further Citation: Supercomputer Titan to get world’s fastest storage system (2013, April 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-04-supercomputer-titan-world-fastest-storage.htmlcenter_img Credit: Oak Ridge National Laboratory The Titan supercomputer (built by Cray Inc.) on the ORNL campus was named the fastest in the world in November of last year, and currently still holds that title. Adding the fastest data storage and retrieval system will increase the entire computer’s computational efficiency.At the heart of Spider II are 36 SFA12K-40 hardware devices—each capable of handling 1.12 petabytes of data. Together they will allow Titan to move 40 petabytes of data at 1.4TB/s. According to ORNL, that’s equivalent to the amount of information in books stacked high enough to reach the moon. The system will have 20,000 disk drives to hold all that information and will use Lustre, the open source file-system software. In contrast, the current system is able to manage 10 petabytes of storage, running at 240GB/sec. Titan is a more advanced version of the supercomputer Jaguar—initial costs, paid for by the U.S. Department of Energy, were approximately $60 million. New additions, including the beefed up storage system, have raised that price to nearly $100. It’s a big machine—it takes up 404 square meters of floor space, and consumes 8.2 MW of electricity. At peak times it can perform 27,000 trillion calculations per second courtesy of 18,688 AMD Opteron CPUs and 18,688 Nvidia Tesla K20X GPUs—it’s ten times faster than any prior computer at ORNL. It also has 710TB of memory at its disposal.The new upgrade will help scientists conduct research efforts that ORNL reps say either cannot be done any other way, or are too dangerous or costly. Expected uses for the computer will likely involve running applications that typically involve an enormous amount of data crunching such as developing models for weather or economic forecasting, searching for oil deposits or putting together information from millions of sources to help track and stop terrorist activity. Currently, ORNL has chosen 31 projects to run this year. This document is subject to copyright.

The iPad Air packs Apple’s fast A12 Bionic chip and support for the Smart Keyboard, a first for a non-Pro iPad. And at $499, it’s half the price of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and $170 more than the regular iPad.article continued below Its bright, colorful, crisp 10.5-inch screen falls in a particularly sweet spot as well, giving you a great canvas for multitasking and gaming. Toss in fantastic battery life, and you get the best mid-size tablet we’ve seen in a while. iPad Air price and availability The iPad Air starts at $499 with 64GB of storage, which is enough for most, especially those that store photos and files in an iCloud account. A 256GB storage option is available at $649. You can upgrade to cellular LTE connectivity for an extra $130, a perk I’ve been begging Apple to offer on the next MacBook Pro. This would mean the difference between relying on airport Wi-Fi, or carrying a hotspot everywhere, as not everyone has a cellular plan that includes mobile hotspot capabilities. The iPad Air supports Apple’s $99 iPad Pencil (1st Gen) and a $159 Smart Keyboard cover. Design The new iPad Air is a larger iPad, which makes it a much-larger iPad mini, which is to say we’re all familiar with this machined aluminium design (available in silver, space gray and gold). Sure, its side bezels are slimmer than those of the original 2012 iPad Air, but if I were packing a bag in a rush, I might not notice the difference. This isn’t a bad thing, mind you, as the top and bottom bezels (also called the forehead and chin), look a lot less chunky on this 10.5-inch design than on the new 7.9-inch iPad Mini. The new 10.5-inch iPad Air weighs 1 pound and measures 9.8 x 6.8 x 0.24 inches, which makes it heavier than, but just as thin as, the new 7.9-inch iPad mini (0.68 ounces / 8 x 5.3 x .24 inches). It’s a hair lighter and thinner than the 9.7-inch iPad (1.05 pounds, 9.4 x 6.6 x 0.29 inches) and the 10.1-inch Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus (1.1 pounds, 9.7 x 6.8 x 0.28 inches). With the Smart Keyboard attached, the iPad Air measures a slightly chunkier 0.5 inches and weighs about 50 percent more, at 1.56 pounds. Having carried the iPad Air around with and without its Smart Keyboard, I prefer holding it with the attached accessory, which provides a grippier surface. While I’d love the iPad Air to ditch its Lightning port for the USB Type-C port seen in the iPad Pro, I’m happy its other “retro” port — the 3.5mm headphone jack — is still around. I’m not sure why this tablet gets a feature that the iPad Pro doesn’t, but I’m not complaining. The Touch ID fingerprint sensor has also stuck around (Face ID has yet to replace it), and still unlocks the tablet almost instantly. Display When watching a 4K version of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse on the iPad Air, I was giddy with the tablet’s image quality. The red-and-blue hues of young Miles Morales’ Spider-Man costume popped off the screen as he interrogated Peter B. Parker. Skipping around the movie, I stopped in awe when I saw the seafoam-green walls of Kingpin’s Super Collider, which looked absolutely electric on the screen. The dark corners of the subway tunnels in the movie looked pretty rich to me, despite the iPad Air not using an OLED display. The iPad Air’s 2224 x 1668-pixel panel is also great for crisp images, as those tiny Ben-Day dots that permeate every object and person in the Spider-Verse look extremely sharp on this 264 pixel-per-inch display. When watching a 4K version of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse on the iPad Air, I was giddy with the tablet’s image quality. According to our colorimeter, the iPad Air produces a high 132 percent of the sRGB spectrum, which jumps over the 116 percent average, the 119 percent rating from the 9.7-inch iPad and the 109 percent rating from the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus. The new iPad mini posted a slightly higher 135 percent. The iPad Air’s screen gets pretty bright, emitting up to 425 nits of brightness, besting the 409-nit category average and the 400-nit Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus. The new iPad mini (490 nits) and the 9.7-inch iPad (489 nits) get even brighter. The Air’s screen is so bright that it offers a superb range of viewing angles, with colors looking true even when I’m examining its panel from 85 degrees to the left or right. MORE: Best Tablet 2019 – Top Tablets on the Market As I’ve navigated the iPad Air’s home screen and apps with taps and swipes, I’ve noticed that this touch-screen display continues Apple’s history of excellent input-tracking accuracy. You’ll appreciate that responsiveness as you drag apps up from the dock for split-view and swipe them in and out for a third “slide-over” app. Smart Keyboard, Apple Pencil The iPad Air is the first tablet outside the iPad Pro line to both support the Apple Pencil and feature a Smart Connector for use with Apple’s Smart Keyboard cover. And while I’m delighted to see these two perks finally arrive, it just makes me want more. The iPad’s Air Smart Keyboard ($159 extra) offers a decent typing experience. Despite its keys being quite shallow, with 1.1 millimeters of travel (we look for at least 1.5 mm), I was able to type comfortably at 73 words per minute (with 98 percent accuracy) on the 10FastFingers.com typing test. That’s below my regular 80 words per minute (98 percent accuracy) average, but I’m OK with the trade-offs. The biggest issue with the Smart Keyboard is its high price, especially since this is not the latest version of the keyboard. Fortunately, you can pair this tablet with any Bluetooth keyboard, though the benefit of the Smart Keyboard is how neatly it folds into the tablet as a display cover for travel. The iPad Air supports the Apple Pencil ($99 extra), which works just as well as ever. When I handed the tablet and stylus to my colleague Remy Zimmerman, a graphic designer, she whipped together a gorgeous-looking avocado in the Procreate drawing app, mixing greens, yellows and browns together in the app while drawing a mix of thin and wide strokes on screen. I wish the Air supported the 2nd Gen Apple Pencil, which is currently limited to the iPad Pro. Sure, that device only charges via magnetic connections, and there’s no such edge on the iPad Air’s design. But its matte barrel feels much more natural than the glossy (and a bit too slick) 1st Gen Apple Pencil. Plus, the process of connecting the Apple Pencil to the Lightning port on the bottom of the iPad Air still feels awkward, like something’s going to break. Performance The iPad Air’s A12 Bionic system-on-chip (which features a Neural Engine for machine learning and the M12 co-processor) provides plenty of speed for such apps as Procreate and Pixelmator Photos to enable snappy creative experiences. This processor can also handle more-traditional laptop-like usage as well. Splitting its screen between the Bear text editor and nine tabs in Safari, I was able to quickly jump, without any stuttering, between tabs about Tucson, Arizona, and plan out my upcoming trip, even with the Music app active as the third slide-over app. I found the limits of the Air only by switching the third open app to YouTube, where I opened a 1080p clip from the VideoGameDunkey channel. Then, I saw Safari tabs taking a moment to refresh when I reopened them by clicking Cmd+Tab to cycle through open pages. The iPad Air’s A12 Bionic processor provides plenty of speed for apps such as Procreate and Pixelmator Photos to enable snappy creative experiences. On the Geekbench 4 general-performance test, the iPad Air notched a solid 11,471, more than twice the 5,600 tablet average. The new iPad mini (also packing the A12 and M12 chips) scored a similar 11,515, while we saw a lower 5,983 from the 9.7-inch iPad (Apple A10 Fusion) and a 4,097 from the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus (Qualcomm Snapdragon 625). Gaming The iPad Air is one of the best tablets for gaming, thanks to its speed, large screen, access to a wide range of iOS games and its augmented reality perks. As I played NBA 2K Mobile I was impressed by the visual effects, including the beads of sweat on the neck and back of Frank Ntilikina, who moved smoothly up and down the court at Madison Square Garden. (The fans, on the other hand, looked realistically bored and disappointed with the ever-underperforming squad). Indie game Donut County, where you navigate a sinkhole around California, looks even better on the iPad Air’s 10.5-inch screen than it does on my iPhone XS Max. Even as phones get larger and larger, apps just look better on larger canvases, where you have more space to enjoy the cartoonish visuals of a giant donut shop and its workers falling through the earth. I also got to enjoy a couple of augmented-reality apps on the iPad Air. In Avo!, I doodled lines on my screen to direct an avocado with googly eyes around my coffee table, and in Ghostbusters World, Slimer appeared in my bedroom, where I got to zap him on screen when he levitated in front of my TV. In each app, the AR objects handled object-detection well, and moved fluidly without issue. MORE: 21 Best Education Apps for Your iPad On the 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited test, the iPad Air earned a great 77,385, easily toppling the 26,854 tablet average, the 37,117 from the 9.7-inch iPad and the 13,801 from the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus. Apps One of the most impressive apps I’ve tested on the iPad Air is Pixelmator Photo, currently in its final beta, which provides a really neat trick. Its ML button applies Machine Learning-based intelligence based on thousands of improved photos to instantly make your photos look starkly more realistic. (That’s where the A12 Bionic chip comes in.) Testing it out on a photo of a nightclub I shot in a back alley in London, a tap of the ML button instantly fixed the white balance of the image. Because of this, the van parked outside the venue gained a more natural white, and the pink design on the towel taped to it also cleaned up nicely, and you could see the dark gray (not black) tone of the marker-written words “SECRET GIRL GANG CLUBHOUSE.” It’s a much faster alternative to re-touching shots in VSCO, my current means of image doctoring, which can often lead to images that look unnatural and oversaturated. Testing a beta version of the Moleskine Flow drawing and writing app, I saw loads of potential in the app that could provide an alternative to using a real notebook, as it packs tons of writing utensils and an unlimited set of pages in a clean aesthetic. Unfortunately, I noticed a slight latency in my input in Flow when compared to using the Pencil in the Apple Notes app. Hopefully, this is something that gets solved in development. Audio Luniz’s “I Got 5 On Us” sounded great on the iPad Air as it filled my loft’s living room with accurate bass, crisp drums and clear synths. The iPad also handily reproduced James Blake’s soulful “Where’s the Catch?” with the singer’s plaintive, serene vocals coming through accurately. Battery Life The iPad Air is a trooper when it comes to endurance. The Laptop Mag Battery Test (web surfing at 150 nits) took 11 hours and 54 minutes to drain the slate of its charge, a time that beats the 10:16 tablet average and the 10:07 time from the 9.7-inch iPad by nearly 2 hours. The new iPad mini (12:40) and Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus (13:06) last longer. Cameras Photography is definitely not a strength of the iPad Air.. I’m not just saying that because of how awkward I looked as I snapped photos with a 10.5-inch tablet, either. The 8-megapixel and front 7-MP cameras just aren’t very impressive. I was able to eek out decent selfies and shots of street art in downtown Manhattan — with accurate hues of spray paint and sharp details for my stubble — but only with the help of ample daylight (Though too much light caused sections of photos to be overexposed.) Fortunately, Pixelmator Photos’ MR button helped salvage those images. The rear cam’s ƒ/2.4 aperture (higher is worse) is partly to blame, as the iPad Air’s shooter lets in less than the wide-angle (ƒ/1.8 aperture) camera on the back of my iPhone XS Max. The iPad Air’s selfie cam sports an ƒ/2.2 aperture, the same as the selfie shooter on the iPhone XS. Both cameras are surprisingly zoomed in, which didn’t help, either. If I were giving this iPad to a relative, I’d advise them to keep using the phone in their pocket, as it’s also easier to hold in one hand than the 10.5-inch iPad Air. Instead, the iPad Air’s cameras are best suited for use in augmented-reality apps. iPad mini vs. New iPad Air vs 9.7-inch iPad: What should you buy? As Apple’s iPad lineup grows, the decision about which iPad is best for you becomes harder. The newly updated iPad mini is so similar to the iPad Air regarding battery life, screen quality and performance that any decision between those two comes down to three questions. MORE: Best Laptops Under $500 The first is “Do you love to multitask?” because the iPad Air’s 10.5-inch screen is much better suited to having three apps open at once, accomplished by using split-view apps with a third that you “slide over” on top of one of the first two, as the 7.9-inch iPad mini’s screen is a bit cramped for all those apps. Next: “Do you prefer to use your tech with one or two hands?” The lighter, smaller iPad mini is ideal for single-hand use, while the large screen of the Air practically requires using both hands. Lastly: “What kind of reader are you?” While comic books look great on the iPad Air’s large screen, ebooks fit the smaller iPad mini’s screen a lot more naturally. But what about the cheaper $329 9.7-inch iPad, which is often marked down on Amazon (it’s on sale there for $249 at the time of publication). With its slower A10 Fusion chip and lack of Smart Keyboard support, I’d recommend this slate to those who are looking for a tablet primarily for web browsing, email and looking through their photos. That’s why it’s a good fit for younger students. Bottom Line The new iPad Air doesn’t reinvent anything about the tablet, but simply provides a great combination of Apple’s existing parts and pieces. If only it included Apple’s Smart Keyboard, it wouldn’t feel so pricey at $500 (which is enough for a decent laptop). Still, the iPad Air’s fantastic display, lengthy battery life and speedy performance place it in a league of its own. The $329 iPad will suffice for more modest users, but those who want a great tablet experience without breaking the bank should buy the iPad Air.

first_imgThe Kotlin team has come out with a release candidate 1.3 of the Kotlin Language. Kotlin 1.3 RC1 comes with improvements and changes to its compiler and the IDE, IntelliJ IDEA.

Other than that, there is added support for suspend fun main function in JVM. The boxing technique has been changed. Now, instead of calling valueOf, a new wrapper type will be allocated. Bug Fixes The invoke function that kept getting called with lambda parameter on a field named suspend has been fixed. With Kotlin 1.3 RC1, correct WhenMappings code is generated in case of mixed enum classes in when conditions. The use of  KSuspendFunctionN and SuspendFunctionN as supertypes has been forbidden. Also, the suspend functions are annotated with @kotlin.test.Test have been forbidden. Use of kotlin.Result as a return type and with special operators has been prohibited. The constructors containing inline classes as parameter types will be now generated as private with synthetic accessors. An inline class that was missing unboxing when using indexer into an ArrayList has been fixed. IDE Changes Support has been added for type parameters in where clause (multiple type constraints). Bug Fixes The issue where @Language prefix and suffix were getting ignored for function arguments has been fixed. Coroutine migrator has been renamed to buildSequence/buildIterator to their new names. Deadlock in databinding with AndroidX which led to Android Studio hanging has been fixed. The issue of Android module in a multiplatform project not being recognized earlier as a multiplatform module has been fixed. Multiplatform projects without Android target were not being imported properly into Android Studio, this has been fixed with Kotlin 1.3 RC1. IDEA used to hang when Kotlin bytecode tool window remained open while editing a class with a secondary constructor. This is fixed now. IDE Multi-Platform: Old multi-platform modules templates have been removed from New Project/New Module wizard. ConcurrentModificationException, an actual type alias has been introduced in the JVM library. There are more changes and improvements in Kotlin 1.3RC1. Check out Kotlin 1.3RC official release notes for the complete list.

US trade deficit jumps to 6year high of 514 billion

first_img Four benefits of having a wireless security system WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. trade deficit in March swelled to the highest level in more than six years, propelled by a flood of imports that may have sapped the U.S. economy of any growth in the first quarter.The deficit rose to $51.4 billion, the largest trade gap since October 2008 and more than 43 percent higher than in February, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday. Exports were up 0.9 percent to $187.8 billion, while imports increased 7.7 percent to $239.2 billion. The trade deficit is the short-fall between exports and imports. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies FILE – In this Feb. 23, 2015 file photo, container ships wait to be unloaded at the Port of Los Angeles. The Commerce Department releases international trade data for March on Tuesday, May 5, 2015. (AP Photo/Nick Ut, File) The result suggests that international trade played a bigger-than-expected role in the U.S. economy’s anemic growth in the January-March. It could even force the government to further revise down its gross domestic product estimate for the quarter, possibly into negative territory.Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said the massive trade deficit means the U.S. economy “undoubtedly contracted slightly in the first quarter.” He estimates GDP in the January-March period fell 0.3 percent instead of the 0.2 percent growth the government reported last week.However, he notes that the surge in imports stems largely from the resolution in February of a labor dispute at West Coast ports, which worked to clear their backlogs in March.“Assuming that most of the catch-up is now complete… then imports should fall back in April, bringing the trade deficit down to a more normal level too,” Ashworth said in a note to clients.That means the road ahead should be brighter. Economists are looking for growth to rebound in the current April-June quarter to around 2 percent, climbing to a 3 percent average in the second half of the year. Rising employment is expected to fuel stronger consumer spending, which would help offset sluggish export growth. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Exports have been hurt by an increase in the value of the dollar against other major currencies over the past year. A strong dollar makes U.S. products more expensive overseas while lowering the price of imported products in the U.S.The jump in imports in March reflected greater shipments of foreign-made industrial machinery, autos, mobile phones, clothing and furniture.For the first three months of this year, the trade deficit was 5.2 percent higher than the same period a year ago. A larger trade deficit acts as a drag on growth because it means more U.S. producers are losing sales to foreign competitors.The trade gap with China in March surged 38.7 percent to $31.2 billion. The U.S. trade deficit with China is the largest for any country and is on track to set another record this year.Imports of petroleum products declined 6.6 percent to $15.4 billion, the lowest level for imports since September 2004. U.S. exports of petroleum dropped 7 percent to $7.7 billion. Both declines reflected the big drop in oil prices over the last year.President Barack Obama has been pushing the benefits of free trade in an effort to convince Congress to pass the legislation he needs to complete a sweeping trade agreement with 11 other nations, an agreement known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Comments   Share   Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Sponsored Stories The legislation, approved by committees in both the Senate and the House, would force Congress to consider the trade agreement under fast-track rules. That means an up-or-down vote with no amendments from Congress.The fast-track legislation is expected to win Senate approval but passage in the House will be more challenging. Democrats in both chambers are demanding that the administration negotiate stronger labor and environmental standards and ban currency manipulation, with some believing that China is doing so to gain trade advantages.Copyright © The Associated Press.

KP Sharma Oli Top News The Nepal government has decided to spend Rs 92 billion (58 bn in Indian rupees) in the last 15 days of the current financial year that ends on July 15 It is Rs 25 billion more than the amount already spent during the year This money is to be spend on construction and developmental activities during the peak monsoon period There is nothing extraordinary about this rush to spend Corruption in high places is rampant in Nepal and the corrupt have largely enjoyed immunity The government and major political parties have made “zero tolerance” for corruption a part of their policy However the Commission of Inquiry into Abuse of Authority the anti-corruption constitutional body with sweeping powers has not moved against anyone who is influential And a mass mobilisation against corruption looks highly improbable now This political consensus to ignore corruption in high places could be because it is transparent and decentralised Elections to local bodies have not taken place in the past 18 years Hand-picked local leaders of parties control them and funds are channelised into the local bodies through the ministry of local development Not surprisingly questions are not asked about the release of massive funds at the fag end of the financial year The government led by KP Oli has now announced it will hold elections to the local bodies by December But without local bodies election laws in place the election commission is non-committal The main opposition the Nepali Congress has opposed holding elections in December claiming that there is not enough time to prepare However the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist that heads the coalition government is insisting that the election will take place It also wants to hold elections to the provincial parliament and the centre by December 2017 The government especially the CPN-UML expects to win on a populist plank However there are major constitutional and practical hurdles that may derail its plan The constitution declares the country “federal” but the government has failed to demarcate the boundaries of seven provinces and name them Besides some Madhes-centric parties major political parties like the Nepali Congress CPN-UML and the Maoists too have different formulae for province formation The Maoists the second largest coalition partner in the government recognise that Prime Minister Oli and his party will exploit the sops announced in the recent government budget — a 25 per cent hike in the salaries of government employees 100 per cent raise in social security allowance to the elderly and allocation of local development funds — to win over the people Since the youth continue to migrate from the countryside mainly to West Asia in search of jobs the appeasement of the elderly and government employees many think could have a direct impact on the electoral outcome “We should not allow this budget to be passed before the nine-point agreement reached between Oli and Maoist leader Pushpa Kamal Dahal in April is implemented” says Janardan Sharma a former minister and an influential leader of the Maoists The agreement calls for the government to withdraw all cases including murder torture and rape committed during the decade-long armed conflict and legitimise property transaction enforced by the “People’s Government” PM Oli signed the deal apparently to save his chair as Dahal had threatened to withdraw support The Truth and Reconciliation Commission especially its head Surya Kiran Gurung has made it clear that no general amnesty can be granted to the Maoists or anyone involved in the conflict If the Maoists endorse Sharma’s plea Oli will have to take tough decisions Withdrawing cases against the Maoists will go against the past rulings of the Supreme Court and make Oli liable for contempt However refusing to honour the deal with Dahal could destabilise Oli’s government A populist budget with special favours to different sections of the society generous allocation of funds to local bodies at the fag end of the financial year the promise to dole out Rs 150000 to earthquake victims to build houses and the refusal to act against corruption seem a part of Oli’s strategy to save his government All these may not guarantee a longer spell for the Oli government but a hung parliament and another patchwork coalition is likely to create opportunity for more corruption [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | Published: July 24 2017 1:43 pm Laurent

rebate to the tune of 2 per cent to 5 per cent” he said For Mumbai the incentive was first mooted by Shiv Sena MP Rahul Shewale in 2014 However in 2015 the then BMC commissioner Sitaram Kunte had
