Flag protesters are sending message

first_imgThe recent flap about football players taking a knee is to bring the news about black people being killed by the police in every corner of our country. It wasn’t about showing disrespect toward our country or flag. It wasn’t about hatred of our flag or country. It was to bring out what was happening to black men and children.Our president avoided service during the Vietnam conflict and hid while others died. How dare he act patriotic, as his actions show him to be a coward. I believe those who are saying it is unpatriotic for blacks and Caucasians to take a knee are bigots. I applaud the team owners for sticking by their players and showing respect.For too long, the American people have closed their eyes to what is happening. There’s evidence on videotape, and most don’t believe what is in front of their eyes. I watch football every Sunday. I served as many others have, and we will continue to serve. The fact is we have good cops and bad cops. I thank God for the good ones and I pray for those who have been denied life because of the bad ones.Thanks to Colin Kaepernick, America has been awakened to the senseless killings, as well as the plight of black men and children. This is something my four sons never had to worry about. I thank God for this and I will pray for those who woke America up.Gary Philip GuidoRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusRotterdam convenience store operator feels results of having Stewart’s as new neighborEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionA recent letter writer stated that he had been a football fan since 1948.

Hong Kong airport to resume limited transit services

first_imgHong Kong will partly resume transit services at its international airport next week, the city’s leader announced Tuesday, as the business hub gradually reopens while keeping the coronavirus at bay.Hong Kong’s airport is one of the world’s busiest but arrivals and flights have collapsed in the wake of the global pandemic.”Transit services at the airport, which have been suspended since March 25, will partly resume on June 1,” Chief Executive Carrie Lam told reporters. Further details on lifting transit flight restrictions were expected to be unveiled at a press conference by health officials later in the afternoon. Hong Kong was one of the first places to record the COVID-19 disease when it broke out of mainland China. But the city has since made impressive headway against the virus with a little over 1,000 recorded infections and four deaths out of a population of 7.5 million people.Tuesday marked 11 consecutive days with no recorded local infections. Anyone arriving at the airport is not allowed into the city until they take a coronavirus test. Those found to be positive are immediately quarantined. Many businesses including bars were forced to shut in March and April but have since reopened.Karaoke lounges, nightclubs, saunas and party rooms will be allowed to reopen on Friday, Lam said.Hong Kong’s airport was ranked the largest air cargo hub and the fourth largest international passenger centre in 2019 by the Airports Council International, handling 4.8 million metric tonnes of cargo and over 71 million international passengers. Arrivals dropped last year during anti-government protests that rocked the city for months. Topics :last_img read more

UK roundup: L&G buys pension pot consolidator in ‘dashboard’ move

first_imgLegal & General Retail Retirement has acquired a 100% stake in Finovation Limited, a company specialising in pension pot tracing and consolidation.L&G this morning said the acquisition of Finovation, which trades as MyFutureNow, would support its defined contribution (DC) and retail retirement businesses by enabling it to provide customers with a view of their pension and retirement savings, including individual pots, workplace savings and their underlying investment assets.The acquisition comes a few months after the UK government presented the framework for its own initiative on pensions “dashboards” – digital tools intended to give individuals an overview of all their pension savings in one place.Chris Knight, CEO of Legal & General Retail Retirement, said L&G fully supported the government’s pension dashboard initiative, “but the reality is that it may be years before full coverage is realised”. According to a statement from L&G, MyFutureNow uses basic personal data and employment details plus “provider knowledge” to trace pension pots and provide updated details to customers. It could be used as a tracing service or as a way of creating a single ‘dashboard’ view of an individual’s pension savings portfolio.Emma Byron, managing director, Legal & General Retail Retirement Income, said L&G intended to make the new platform available through its DC business in the fourth quarter of this year, before launching it directly to consumers through its Retirement Income business in the first quarter of 2020.L&G said it would offer the MyFutureNow platform to its customers of retirement age but that it could also offer the service to working age customers. LGPS Central turns to KAS Bank for cost transparency assistanceLGPS Central, one of the UK’s eight local authority asset pools, will be using KAS Bank to help it with collecting and reporting cost information. The pooling vehicle will use KAS Bank to help it with collecting cost information across its range of investment mandates for pooled assets and those employed by its partner funds, according to a statement. A cost report to be generated by KAS Bank would be accessible to the LGPS Central team as well as its partner funds.The integrity and security of the cost data would be an important area of focus.Mike Weston, chief executive at LGPS Central Limited, said: “We are committed to being as transparent as possible about investment costs with our clients. We’re delighted to be working with KAS BANK and are looking forward to shining even more light on costs – one of the key benefits of the pooling process.”LGPS Central is the pooling vehicle for nine Midlands-based local government pension scheme (LGPS) pension funds with around £45bn (€48.6bn) of assets between them. LGPS Central is currently responsible for managing around £20bn of the assets.last_img read more

Dick Advocaat angry at Sunderland’s loss to Bournemouth

first_img The Dutchman saw his side lose 2-0 at Bournemouth on Saturday, with Younes Kaboul sent off as the hosts fully deserved their first ever home Premier League win. Callum Wilson opened the scoring for the Cherries inside four minutes before a superb Matt Ritchie volley moments later sealed a memorable result for Eddie Howe’s side. Jeremain Lens had a legitimate second-half header ruled out for offside before Kaboul was dismissed for a second booking haven been run ragged by Wilson all afternoon. And Advocaat, whose side dropped to the foot of the table as a result of the loss, said both he and the players will have to take a look at themselves in the coming days after passing up the opportunity to take three points from what he saw as a winnable game “I’m very angry with the way we started the game,” he said. “We started playing at 2-0 down but by then it is too late. I’m very, very angry with the players – although it is not the first time. “I will think about myself, what I did wrong – the meeting, the training, the wrong line-up, whatever. I also told them you have to face it yourselves as well. “What we bring and what they brought is different. I respect Bournemouth for winning this game but if you see the paper and the names you have to do a little bit more than we did today.” Although it is still only September, Advocaat insisted those involved with Sunderland cannot keep dismissing this run of form as unimportant due to the number of games remaining. “We cannot keep saying that we have 32 games to go – if you play six games and have two points it is not good enough,” he added. “All my respect to Bournemouth and with what they have done but there is no need to lose a game like this in my opinion.” Although Ritchie’s strike will grab all of the headlines, Wilson’s opener saw him move onto five goals from the opening for games of the season. That leaves him as the top goalscorer in the league and Howe praised the forward and backed him to make his mark at international level if given the chance. “He has all the attributes that a modern-day striker needs,” Howe said of the man who scored a hat-trick in the recent 4-3 win at West Ham. “He is very quick, he did really well today for the first goal to show strength and the ability to roll the defender in a tight situation and it was a great finish – he is full of confidence at the moment. “I think it is great that we are playing at this level and our players are being appreciated and talked about and I’d like nothing more than to see Callum go on and make England appearances. “I think Callum’s potential is limitless, he is strong, quick and a good finisher and one of the features today was his hold-up play. He is developing all aspects of his game all the time, he is young and level-headed and keep doing the right things.” Having won away at West Ham, this was Bournemouth’s first Premier League victory at the Vitality Stadium and Howe conceded a strong home record is essential in their battle to stay in the top-flight beyond one season. “I think today was a really important day for us,” he added. “Our home form, every season, is hugely important. You need to be confident and home and deliver good performances in front of your own crowd and get points and today goes a long way to giving the players a boost when they really needed it.” Dick Advocaat will leave no stone unturned in his attempts to halt Sunderland’s stuttering start to the season.

Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Seeking Quick Unemployment Payments

first_imgA judge granted a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed against the State of Florida and its unemployment benefit system operators on Wednesday.The lawsuit had been filed by attorneys representing Floridians who are awaiting their unemployment payments due to the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.The hearing was held by phone and through a virtual meeting.Attorneys for the state told Circuit Court Judge Angela Dempsey about steps that officials have taken to get the problematic CONNECT system working and processing payments and applications.One of the attorneys for Gov. Ron DeSantis said Florida law does not have provisions for residents to receive immediate checks. She added there are numerous state and federal requirements that must be met in order to avoid fraud.“We are doing the best we can with the system and the resources we have,” she explained. “It’s not as fast as we would like, it’s not as fast as you would like.”On the other hand, attorney Gautier Kitchen, who represents the residents, suggested the state pay everyone and confirm unemployment later, adding that the DEO is “deterring, delaying and denying. They can pay and chase just like they do with Medicare.”DeSantis has previously called the CONNECT system a “clunker” that was not designed to withstand any type of surge in usage.As of May 5, @FLDEO has paid 481,497 claimants a total of more than $1.017 billion.— Florida DEO (@FLDEO) May 6, 2020 Kitchen quoted the governor on those statements while making his plea to the judge.“They had their shot at this, too little, too late, something has to be done, all the king’s horses and all the king’s men cannot fix the system,” he said, adding, “Fifty years ago we put a man on the moon but we can’t enroll people in an unemployment system.”Dempsey ultimately said she had no choice but to grant the state’s request, adding that she does not “have the authority to rewrite the statute or to create a whole new pay and chase system.”The DEO dashboard states that more than $1 billion has been paid to claimants as of Wednesday, which translates to at least one payment being sent to 481,487 people. In addition, more than 1.1 million people in the state have filled for unemployment benefits since mid-March.Gov. DeSantis this week asked the inspector general to investigate the $77.9 million contract under which the CONNECT site was built seven years ago.last_img read more

Rowing : Split opinions dominate men’s crew’s exclusion from NCAA

first_img Published on May 10, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Nick: | @nicktoneytweets Gina Biascoechea understands the benefits of Title IX. But the sophomore Syracuse women’s rower doesn’t understand why her sport has to be split by sex.‘Our team (the SU women’s rowing team) gets an earlier season, more team gear and more scholarships,’ Biascoechea said.The NCAA has never been affiliated with the country’s oldest intercollegiate sport, men’s rowing. But women’s rowing is a different story.When the SU women’s rowing team raced on May 1, on Mercer Lake in West Windsor, N.J., it finished fourth in the Big East championship, in an NCAA-affiliated meet. Women’s rowing is an official NCAA sport with recognized conferences and an official NCAA championship in three divisions. Men’s rowing is not.The Intercollegiate Rowing Association is the men’s answer to NCAA rowing exclusion. But SU men’s rowing head coach Dave Reischman said winning a Big East championship would be more glamorous than winning the IRA.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘It’d be great for the men’s team to be able to say we were the best in the Big East,’ Reischman said. ‘People get that, and name recognition would come easily because of the Big East conference. ‘The reason for the divide in collegiate rowing between genders is simple. It comes down to Title IX. The 1972 Title IX Amendment of the Higher Education Act stipulates that all federally funded programs must offer equal opportunities and dedicate equal resources to men and women.Women’s rowing became an NCAA-affiliated sport in 1996, in part to help the scholarship inequities addressed by Title IX legislation.The size of a Division I college football roster makes resources less available for other men’s teams. Syracuse football has 85 permitted scholarship athletes.Women’s rowing teams help offset the gender disparity created by football. Reischman said teams can have up to 60 participants and 20 full scholarships.‘I don’t find it fair that the women’s crew team has more advantages than the men’s team because of the football team,’ said Biascoechea, the SU women’s rower.Adding an entire men’s rowing team — and the scholarships, trips, meals, housing and other services that come with NCAA athletes — would further scramble the gender participation balance Title IX strives to achieve, regardless of how long colleges have been racing.But to Craig Amerkhanian, Stanford’s director of rowing, excluding deserving student-athletes isn’t fair, regardless of gender.‘Men’s rowing would enhance the image and mission of the NCAA,’ Amerkhanian said. ‘They would perform at the highest level in the classroom and on the water, just like any other student-athlete.’Amerkhanian said men’s rowing needs the major conferences associated with rowing — the Pac-10, the Big Ten and the Big East — to get behind deserving rowers and propose legislation to affiliate men’s rowing with the NCAA. But men’s crew has made no such proposal, said Cameron Schuh, the NCAA’s associate director of public and media relations.A few schools did petition the NCAA for inclusion in 2005. But it didn’t garner enough support. Reischman said the doomed petition was the last window of opportunity for men’s crew to become NCAA-sanctioned.If the implementation of Title IX started to close that window, the customs associated with more than 150 years of men’s rowing may slam it shut. Many rowers and coaches nationwide don’t want the NCAA to interfere with the way they’ve always operated.Syracuse men’s team co-captain Mike Gennaro said keeping rowing traditions intact outweighs any prospect of gender equity in the sport.‘I can’t see men’s rowing becoming an NCAA sport because of all of the tradition involved with the sport,’ Gennaro said. ‘It’s been this way for decades, and changing things now could potentially complicate things just as much as it would organize things.’One of those traditions is shirt trading, a custom in which the winning boat of a race receives the shirts of the losing team’s rowers. Reischman said that at the IRA Championships, a rower in the winning boat will receive 16 shirts from 16 losing teams.But shirt-trading would be viewed as gambling should men’s rowing become NCAA-affiliated and the tradition would be subject to NCAA sanctioning, Reischman said. Two more rowing rituals, freshman races and lightweight crew, would also end under NCAA rules.Traditions aside, Amerkhanian believes a potential NCAA inclusion would benefit all of men’s rowing. The United States Olympic Rowing Team, for instance, would have a broader field of student-athletes to pick from.‘It is absolutely time for the oldest collegiate sport to become a part of the NCAA,’ Amerkhanian said.But if NCAA inclusion for men’s rowing becomes a question of gender impartiality, Reischman said the answer isn’t that obvious.‘Was it fair that from 1852 — when our sport first started racing — to about 30 years ago, women had limited opportunities in sports across the board?’ Reischman said. ‘It wasn’t fair. And if staying out of the NCAA is something that helps correct that in some small way, then I’ll stay with the IRA.’ Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Commentslast_img read more

Morgan, Whigham prepare for Clemson with Reddish questionable for Syracuse

first_img Published on October 2, 2013 at 1:05 am Contact Trevor: | @TrevorHass Syracuse cornerbacks Julian Whigham and Wayne Morgan don’t know if Brandon Reddish will suit up against No. 3 Clemson on Saturday, but they’re preparing to play significant snaps in various packages regardless.“I’m just focused on film,” Whigham said Tuesday night. “Studying everything, making sure I know everything and when I get in there, play my game.”Reddish, a junior cornerback, suffered a lower-body injury in the first half of Syracuse’s 52-17 pummeling of Tulane on Sept. 21 and didn’t return to the game. Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer listed Reddish as questionable during his weekly teleconference Tuesday. Reddish hasn’t practiced since then, Morgan said, but he expects him to return Wednesday.Defensive backs coach Fred Reed said Reddish’s status for Saturday is still up in the air.“Really toward the end of the week we’ll have a better indication of what’s going on (with Reddish),” Reed said. “His rehab really went well, so we’ll see how it goes.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the event Reddish doesn’t play, Morgan said he’s re-familiarized himself with the playbook in the past week just in case.If he does take Reddish’s playing time on Saturday, he’ll be rudely greeted by the nightmare that is the high-octane Clemson offense. Highlighted by quarterback Tajh Boyd and wide receivers Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant, the Tigers’ offense is among the most explosive in the country.Reed said Watkins is the best receiver Syracuse has faced this season. He called Watkins dynamic and said his speed is “legit.”“He can really fly,” Reed said.Penn State’s Allen Robinson and Northwestern’s Tony Jones combined for 318 receiving yards against the Orange. That was with Robinson missing the first half of the Penn State-Syracuse game.SU’s depleted secondary will be in for its toughest task Saturday in the Orange’s first-ever Atlantic Coast Conference matchup. Reddish’s potential absence would make the task that much more difficult.“They don’t make mistakes often,” Whigham said. “We’ve really got to be on top of our game.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

MzVee chides Sports Ministry for abrupt Black Stars bonus cuts

first_imgDancehall artiste, Vera Hamenoo- Kpeda better known on stage as MzVee, has condemned the way in which the Sports Ministry communicated their decision to slash down Black Stars winning bonuses. “I don’t think [the Ministry’s stance that the team should] take it or leave it is nice. It’s quite harsh. [The players] have placed Ghana on the map to a point and you can’t just abruptly tell them something like that.”It has to be a gradual thing. You can’t just get up one day and tell them that this is what is going to happen.” MzVee was speaking on Asempa FM’s Saturday sports show, Ladies’ Time.Last week, it emerged that the Sports Ministry was planning a 50% downward adjustment of the Stars’ winning bonuses to $5,000. Widespread media reports say the ministry will ask not comfortable with new bonus scheme to quit the team. “People are moving from the Black Stars and playing for other teams and they are making so much money so if you are making them feel this way on their own home turf, it’s very insulting.”center_img “People are going to start running away and we don’t want that so [the authorities] should try and be reasonable,” she concluded.An official announcement of the widely-reported bonus cuts is expected soon.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySports According to her, apart from the fact the decision was made without prior notice to the players, telling them to take the new amount or quit the team is quite insulting.last_img read more

World Credit Union to Establish Credit Union Branches throughout Liberia

first_imgThe Chief of Party (COP) and Project Director of the World Council of Credit Union, Patrick Muriuki, has promised members of the Liberia Credit Union National Association (LCUNA) that his organization will continue to establish more branches in the 15 counties of Liberia.Muriuki made the disclosure recently at the just-ended third General Assembly of LCUNA, held in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.According to Mr. Muriuki, the establishment of more credit union sub-branches in the 15 political sub-divisions is intended to support the development of their activities by expanding savings and improve livelihoods of poor and low-income households through the Liberia Credit Unions Association.“WOCCU raises the awareness of credit unions, facilitates the exchange of information and ideas about financial cooperatives, and works with policymakers to improve the legal and regulatory environments for credit unions,” said Mr. Muriuki.He said most of the credit union centers in the country have been operating like a ‘savings clubs’ otherwise known locally as ‘susu,’ where they have to save and withdrew their funds at the end of the year or a little earlier in the year.By that, WOCCU’s chief of party said that the people would not achieve any things. He added that the establishment of the centers would encourage more local Liberian business entrepreneurs to improve their lives as well as their businesses.These 15 sub-branches, he noted, would help build smaller credit unions’ capacities and strengthen LCUNA’s ability to establish and maintain a network of safe and sound credit unions in the country.The chief of party of WOCCU also disclosed to LCUNA’s member that for the past four years, WOCCU has recruited over 2000 members nationwide and as well as generate the amount of L$5 million for the organization.“This is a boost for credit union members in the country,” he assured them.Currently, Mr. Muriuki said there are 2,000 credit unions affiliating with LCUNA and serving 36,000 members as well as four new regional credit unions, which will serve a minimum of 40,000 new members by the end of May 2017.For his part, the managing director of Liberia Credit Union National Association, Yarkpazuo Gborzowuoi, thanked WOCCU for the level of support that is giving to his organization.Gborzowuoi said the credit union is pivotal to the ongoing recovery of Liberia fledging economy.He noted that reconstruction of the country can only be achieved if citizens are given the needed support that will enable them partner with government to implement the Agenda for Transformation (AfT).At the same time, he wants government to empower the Liberia Credit Union so that it can perform to the expectation of international standard.He, however, called on members to refrain from negative devices that will obstruct the growth and development of the Union.Meanwhile, WOCCU is an international trade association with headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin and was founded on January 1, 1971 as the global trade association for credit unions around the world.WOCCU has also worked with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Microfinance Investment Support Facility for Afghanistan (MISFA) to build Islamic Investment and Finance Cooperatives in Afghanistan.Members of WOCCU include regional and national credit union associations, cooperative associations and business service organizations in 97 countries throughout the world. WOCCU’s member associations account for over 54,000 credit unions with 186 million members worldwide.It also provides micro-enterprise through access to saving and credit services as well as increasing access to finance through democratic participation.In 2006, WOCCU received $6.7 million grant from the Gates Foundation to develop credit unions in Africa and Latin America.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Audit Two Critical Line Ministries before Merger’

first_imgOne of Liberia’s lead human-rights advocates, Atty Samuel Kofi Woods II, has called on the Liberian Government to conduct a comprehensive audit of the Ministries of Finance and Economic Planning before their official merger.The Former Public Works Minister and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Liberia Law Society made the call during a Thanksgiving and Appreciation Service held at the Melvin B. Cox Methodist Church in lower Caldwell.Atty Woods was honored at the church for his many contributions to the state, church and humanity.Speaking at the well-attended honoring ceremony Sunday, Woods said if an audit has already been conducted, the Public Accounts Committee of the Legislature should conduct the necessary hearings to establish a firm foundation for the merger of the ministries.He also described such a move by the National Legislature as critical to Liberia’s socio-economic development.Atty. Woods further contended that the Liberian people need to know the status of both institutions in terms of personnel, plans, actions and other recommendations that could assist the new merger.In a carefully worded press statement issued in Monrovia Monday, Atty. Woods recalled that issue of the merger of the two institutions has been a source of controversy with employees demonstrating against the transition.Meanwhile, the former Public Works Minister Woods has recommended that the National Independence Celebrations, July 26, this year be celebrated as a day of fast and prayer.He also noted that there are too many unfortunate and strange developments occurring in Liberia, which he referred to as ‘Signs of the Times’ that compel Liberians to reflect upon.The former Labor Minister also explained that the level diminishing trust in public officials, the Ebola plague, tragic violence in Nimba County and its attendant’s consequences are indeed worrisome.The change of venue of this year’s Independence Day celebrations, raging poverty and anger amongst Liberians as well as indifference, arrogance, disdain and complacency in the Liberian society are reasons not to celebrate in pomp and pageantry.Liberians, he said, should rather engage in a moment of mediation and reflection.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Consumers’ rights expo opens tomorrow

first_img…aims to sensitise students on consumers’ affairsIn observance of Consumer Rights Day, which will be celebrated on Thursday, the Competition and Consumers Affairs Commission (CCAC) will be hosting a student’s consumers’ awareness exposition at the National Exhibition Complex, Sophia, Georgetown.The exposition is aimed at equipping the targeted audience (students) with the mandatory knowledge needed to make good purchasing decisions in keeping with the Consumer Affairs Act 2011.Students from schools across Georgetown will be educated on the levels of protection that they are entitled to under the law – protection provided by the Consumer Affairs Division and protection by the CCAC.The exposition is set to offer a set of advisories and know-how tools and to inform the public on the rights that they have in any buyer-seller scenario.It is also meant to build consumers’ confidence to accept and pay for only services and products that they are satisfied with.In recent years, the Tourism Ministry had launched a “Know Your Consumer Rights” campaign, as Minister Cathy Hughes urged the Consumer Affairs Division to pay attention to the difficulties consumers often experience with regard to the poor quality of goods and services available on the market. The target audience for this campaign is consumers from low to medium socio-economic areas since they are traditionally less likely to know and exercise their rights than those from the higher socio-economic brackets.last_img read more

Maternal deaths prevention campaign taken to Berbice

first_imgThe Public Health Ministry has taken its countrywide training programme to Berbice, as efforts continue to eliminate maternal deaths caused by haemorrhage.Zero maternal deaths by haemorrhage is an initiative of the Pan America Health Organisation/World Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO), along with its Latin Centre for Perinatology, Women’s and Reproductive Health (CLAP/WR), to prevent maternal deaths by postpartum haemorrhage.According to research conducted by the Public Health Ministry and PAHO, postpartum haemorrhage is a leading cause of maternal death in Guyana.

first_imgA recent protest by locals at Cockhill Bridge in Buncrana.The end appears to be in sight for one of Donegal’s most dangerous road crossings after €3M was announced for a new bridge in Buncrana.The funding for the new Cockhill Bridge was announced by Minister Joe McHugh this morning.It is now anticipated that work will start almost immediately on the bridge.It ends a long-running saga which has seen protests at the bridge which locals claim was a serious danger.Minister of State Joe McHugh TD, “I am delighted to announce today that €3million funding has been secured for a new bridge at Cockhill, Buncrana.“Following a meeting I organised for a deputation from Inishowen Municipal District to meet with the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe TD, a report was submitted to the Dept. and once a review was carried out, the Minister has agreed to support this project in full and provide funding.”Within the report submitted to the Dept., the plan outlined in detail provision for a new road bridge to be located south of the existing Cockhill Bridge as part of the outer relief road. This new bridge would become the main vehicular route for the R238.As the bridge would be built to current design standards there will no longer be turning issues.The road will also have footways which would constitute a pedestrian route towards Buncrana.It is expected that once the new bridge is complete, the existing bridge would most likely become redundant for motor vehicles and could be used as a pedestrian/ cycle route to access local amenities in Cockhill.“Cockhill Bridge has been a health and safety issue for local residents and those who have to use the bridge for more years than it ever should have been. The community and public representatives have been raising their concerns for years and I have been working with my colleague Minister Donohoe, and his predecessor, Minister Leo Varadkar, to highlight not only the public safety concerns but also the importance of this juncture for vehicles and the increased development of the surrounding areas. While these developments have been to the benefit of the local shop, school etc. there is no footpath at present and even an Garda Siochana have voiced concerns around the safety of the bridge,” said Minister McHugh.The announcement has also been welcomed by the Cockhill Bridge Action Group.The Minister added “The significance of this project cannot be underestimated. This new bridge opens up North and North West Inishowen – where there have been major developments from a tourism perspective. With the development and success of the Wild Atlantic Way, this will lead to the connecting of Malin Head to Fanad Lighthouse, both of which have been selected as Signature Points along the route, and today’s announcement now becomes a significant investment for these areas as well.“A lot of hard work has gone in to ensuring that this funding announced today is confirmed and I would like to acknowledge the local communities, the local authority, especially the engineers who have worked hard to ensure that this project had its homework done and was shovel-ready once monies committed, my colleagues Councillors Bernard McGuinness and John Ryan for their tireless work, and a special mention must be given to previous Cllr Peter The Egg McLaughlin who was a long-time advocate of the bridge and all his work on ensuring this bridge was a priority must be acknowledged. I would like to thank Minister Paschal Donohoe and his officials for understanding the importance of the new bridge for Buncrana and the surrounding areas. I would also like to highlight and commend in particular the Cockhill Action Group for not only campaigning on safety grounds, but for advocating so strongly that I believe they helped ensure the urgency of the issue was wholly understood by all.“I will continue to work closely with the Dept. and the Donegal County Council to help get this project moving now as quickly and efficiently as possible. Cockhill Bridge spans 24m over the Crana River and carries the Regional Route R238, the main access road serving the Inishowen Peninsula. The R238 begins at the junction with the National Primary N13 in Bridgend and passes through Burnfoot, Fahan, Buncrana, Clonmany, Ballyliffin, Carndonagh, Culdaff, Gleneely, Moville, Redcastle and Quigleys Point, before terminating in Muff at the border with Northern Ireland where it becomes the A2. The R238 therefore forms a vital commercial link between towns and villages within Inishowen, as well as being the primary access / exit route to the city of Derry and other parts of Donegal.”DELIGHT AS €3 MILLION ANNOUNCED FOR NEW BUNCRANA BRIDGE was last modified: June 11th, 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:buncranaCockhill BridgefundingMinister Joe McHughlast_img read more

New wildlife sanctuary to open in Inishowen to protect rare species

first_imgPlans to open a new wildlife sanctuary in Inishowen took another step closer this week as the 22-acre site was given the go-ahead. It is hoped that the site, which is based in Dundrean in Burnfoot, could be opened within the next two months.The person behind the sanctuary, Buncrana solicitor Killian McLaughlin, is building with the aim of creating a worthy habitat for a range of different Irish animals including the rare red squirrel, foxes, hedgehogs, red deer and birds. The sanctuary, which could attract up to 24,000 visitors per year, will incorporate a reception building, vehicular entrance with car park, rehabilitation units, open viewing areas and a below the water viewing area.The site will also host a visitor centre and a score of enclosures for wildlife homed in the facility.It is understood that visitor numbers will be kept to a minimum once the sanctuary opens, with a view of using the facility to educate school children to the rich diversity of wildlife across Donegal.Cllr Nicholas Crossan, Cathaoirleach of the Donegal County Council, said he believed the development will be a great attraction for Inishowen. He told Donegal Daily: “The site is very near completion, with the launch possibly in the next six weeks, that is the hope because Killian (McLaughlin) is not ready to go yet, but he will be very shortly.“I think it will be a fabulous attraction and unique wildlife sanctuary for the area and for educational purposes, I think it will be a great idea for the Donegal area.“And especially now, when climate change is a big topic of discussion, it will be interesting to learn and watch how these beautiful animals, that people don’t realise are in their own backyards, live and survive in the wild,” Crossan added.“It will be fantastic to teach children more about nature and the spot itself is a cracking spot that has been kept as natural as possible.”New wildlife sanctuary to open in Inishowen to protect rare species was last modified: August 7th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

SA’s R80bn methane project

first_imgNT Energy UK, its empowerment partner Bataung Oil and the state-owned Central Energy Fund are to begin exploration for coalbed methane reserves as part of a project to develop sustainable sources of alternative energy for the country.Engineering News reported last week that GascoSA, which is exploring for the gas in three South African provinces, could be in commercial methane production in 18 months, spending US$169-million (about R1.1-billion) by the end of that period.GascoSA is 60% owned by NT Energy Africa, which comprises NT Energy UK and local empwerment company Bataung Group, and the state-owned Central Energy Fund (CEF).According to its website, CEF is involved in the search for appropriate energy solutions to meet the future energy needs including oil, gas, electrical power, solar energy, low-smoke fuels, biomass, wind and renewable energy sources.It also manages the operation and development of the oil and gas assets and operations of the South African government.According to BuaNews, the project, which is endorsed by the Department of Minerals and Energy as part of its mandage to secure energy for the coutry, represents a potential investment of U$10-billion over the next seven to 10 years in infrastructure and a pipeline rollout.Bataung Group chairman Billy Modise said that for the country to meet its development and job creation targets as outlined by the Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative for South Africa (Asgi-SA), developing a sustainable source of alternative energy had become non-negotiable.“The development of sustainable sources of alternative energy has become a strategic priority for South Africa, especially as current demand continues to outstrip capacity,” Bataung Group MD Kinesh Pather told BuaNews. “Coal bed methane and the conversion of gas to liquid fuels provide a real, clean and long-term alternative to the current energy crisis.”NT Energy official Chris Mumby told Mining Weekly Online last week that the company had spoken informally with state-owned electricity utility Eskom about methane uptake, while it was also open to partnering with independent power producers.According to Engineering News, studies to reveal gas content would be completed by the middle of 2008, and viability studies by the fourth quarter of the year. If viable reserves are found, production drilling would take a further year.last_img read more

Wind Farms Have Little Impact on Property Values

first_imgA detailed study by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory finds wind turbines have little if any impact on the value of nearby houses.Researchers collected information on 50,000 home sales in 27 counties in nine states. The houses were within 10 miles of 67 different wind farms. Nearly 1,200 of the sales were for homes within a mile of a wind turbine. The study covers sales well before the announcement of a wind farm to well after construction.Wind farms ranged in size from a single turbine to 150 turbines, with turbine size averaging under 400 feet in total height (base to tip of blade). The average turbine capacity was 1.6 megawatts.“Across all model specifications, we find no statistical evidence that home prices near wind turbines were affected in either the post-construction or post-announcement/pre-construction periods,” the study concludes. “Therefore, if affects do exist, either the average sales impacts are relatively small (within the margin of error in the models) and/or sporadic (impacting only a small subset of homes).”Even for houses located within a mile of a turbine, the study found it “highly unlikely” that the effect on the sales price was larger than +/- 4.9%.“Regardless of these potential maximum effects, the core results of our analysis consistently show no sizable statistically significant impact of wind turbines on nearby property values,” the study says.last_img read more

Getting Used to Being Messy

first_imgSince the Military Families Learning Network Virtual Conference: Learning Through Change, I have spent time thinking and reading about a concept that stuck with me after that conference: the messy middle. It’s kind of funny, really, because when I was a kid I was often called “Messy Jessie” because of the state of catastrophe that I left behind in every room I entered. While those days are (mostly) behind me as far as my housekeeping skills go, the more I read about the internal and relational “messy middle,” the more I realize that I will always be a bit of a Messy Jessie. Now that I am aware of this concept, I feel as though each day presents an opportunity to work through one messy middle or another – certainly the way Brené Brown describes in her book “Rising Strong” – in an internal struggle to own my story, and when I fall into old patterns of thinking and acting and fail to do the work necessary to step into my “badassery” (Brené’s word). But this concept applies to much more than an internal struggle. It seems like much of life is lived in one messy middle or another, with moments of courage and closure.The messy middle in our professional livesEven in our professional lives, many of us operate in a series of “messy middles” – dealing with competing interests, uncertainty, changes, stepping into leadership roles in our organizations while assuming helper roles with our clients and community partners. With so many opportunities for us to make up stories about ourselves and others, we can become stuck if we never become aware of the stories we tell ourselves or if we never engage in the work necessary to move beyond those stories. This can keep us from being effective collaborators and making the kind of impact we hope for in our role.The messy middle in our communityEntire communities are also susceptible to becoming stuck in their stories. One community I worked with was filled with people that fiercely guarded their story. Unfortunately their story was that they were not worth much, and they wanted to stay that way, thank you very much. These  residents were proud to have been born and raised in this city. Yet when development projects threatened this identity, they would immediately resort to their story and insert the word “trash” into the middle of this city’s name. As an outsider, I couldn’t believe that these proud residents would refer to their city as a trash city. These development projects were the trigger events that sent them into a messy middle and they fell back into the story of their city being trash. This pattern repeated itself time and again, and it kept this community from communicating and innovating about how to move forward together.The messy middle in our networks, groups, and associationsThe messy middle is also present in our networks, community groups, and associations. In the book “The Facilitator’s Guide to Participatory Decision Making,” the authors call this the Groan Zone – the messy part located smack dab in the middle of the Diamond of Participatory Decision-Making model. The Groan Zone is the messy middle of group dynamics – and it is where things can fall apart quickly and can result in complete abandonment of the work. The authors created this model “to validate and legitimize the hidden aspects of everyday life in groups. Expressing difference is natural and beneficial; getting confused is to be expected; feeling frustrated is par for the course. Building shared understanding is a struggle, not a platitude” (P.20, author’s’ emphasis). In other words, everyday life in groups can be characterized as a big, whopping, better-get-out-your-cleaning-supplies-because-this-is-going-to-be-messy middle. Becoming stuck in our stories is what keeps us from making it through to the other side of a messy middle. It keeps us from growth, connection, and meaningful collaborations and relationships. So what can we do to step off the hamster wheel and begin to move through the messy middle?Here are a few of many possible things we can begin to work on right now:Find a way to muster the collective courage to communicate more with each other. While we’re on this topic, it would be a good idea to also think about how we prefer to communicate versus the preferences of those we are trying to communicate with and use that reflection to adjust our style to become better communicators overall.Learn to be in relationship with yourself, your team members, your neighbors, and your communities. Get to know yourself better. Get to know the people you work with or collaborate with. Get to know your neighbors. Don’t stop once you’ve had one or two conversations, or once you’ve made one or two personal breakthroughs. Get to know your community on more than just the superficial level – decide what that means to you and go do it. This is a lifelong process. When a mistake has been made, start by acknowledging that something went wrong, then have a conversation about it, allow yourself and all those involved to learn from it, and “move forward arm in arm.”.  Commit completely and let everyone collectively figure out where they are at. Commit to yourself, commit to your team/collaborators, commit to the process.Learn to be OK with differences – social learning happens when we discuss our differences, not our similarities. Be patient with yourself, others, and the process.Photo credit:All photos downloaded from under CC0 Creative Commonslast_img read more

Parcel bomb explodes, two injured

first_imgTwo people were injured after a low-intensity parcel bomb exploded at a courier service’s office in Ahmednagar on Tuesday night.According to the police, the package, which was going from Ahmednagar to Pune, was apparently addressed to Sanjay Nahar, founder of Sarhad, an NGO that works with displaced Kashmiri students.According to the police, the crude bomb hidden in a parcel exploded at the office of Maruti Courier Service in the city’s Maliwada area at 9:45 p.m. on Tuesday. Sandip Bhujbal (38) and Sanjay Kshirsagar (27), who were sorting parcels, were injured when they tried to open the package, thinking it to be unusually heavy.The package contained a thick book and a short note. “The note was written by someone claiming to be a girl student from a Pune college who benefited from Mr. Nahar’s help, stating that [the parcel] was a gift to him,” said Vinoy Kumar Choubey, Inspector General of Police, Nashik Range.The explosive device was kept inside a cavity in the book, and had a circuit that would trigger the blast the moment the parcel was tampered with, said sources. Mr. Bhujbal has been discharged, but Mr. Kshirsagar, who has serious injuries on his chest and nearly lost the use of two fingers, is still in the ICU, said police sources.“The parcel was delivered to the courier office around 3 p.m. Based on the description given by the woman who received it, we have prepared a sketch of the person who delivered it,” Ranjan Kumar Sharma, Superintendent of Police, Ahmednagar, said. The police think the suspect gave a fake address. “We are trying to determine ifi t was addressed to Mr. Nahar because of his work or due to personal enmity,” Mr. Sharma said.Mr. Nahar, who has met investigating authorities, said the culprits may have intended to deter him from working with Kashmiri youth. “I cannot fathom who could have addressed the parcel to me and for what reason. We have received threats in the past, but they have not stopped us from carrying on our work.”last_img read more

Japanese top countrys maiden Sports Climbing World Cup

first_imgMumbai, May 16 (PTI) Japanese climbers dominated at the maiden Sports Climbing World Cup held in Navi Mumbai over the weekend, accounting for four of the six podium slots. Japanese national Kokoro Fujii finished first in the mens bouldering category, while his compatriot Miho Nonaka bagged the top honours in womens bouldering. This was the first time that the International Federation of Sports Climbings World Cup (IFSC) was hosted in the country, which has a very nascent climbing scene at present. Supported by an enthusiastic crowd that cheered at every move, Fujii completed three of the four routes, while Nonaka cleared two of the womens routes. Other podium finishers from Japan included Tomoa Narasaki (second in mens category) and Akiyo Noguchi (third in womens category). A total of 80 athletes from countries like the US, Canada, France, Russia, Slovakia, South Korea and Iran, among others competed for the top honours. It also included 18 Indians but none of them could qualify beyond the first round.Elimination rounds were held on Saturday and it was wrapped up yesterday with the semi-finals and finals. The routes became difficult with every round and there were a lot of overhangs that made the climbers defy gravity with sheer power that was appreciated by a cheering crowd.The world cup was organised by the city-based Girivihar Adventure Club and hosted by the apex Indian Mountaineering Foundation.Sports climbing is set to be included in the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games and possibly in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as well.”Climbing is a growing sport in the country and we would like to encourage more people to take up the sport and also come and watch such events. We will be looking to build on this platform,” Girivihars Franco Linhares said.advertisement”I know that it was not an easy journey but all credit to them (organisers) for pulling off a very well conducted world cup. I hope that this is only the beginning and we are able to bring many more such events to our country,” IFSC president Marco Maria Scolaris said. PTI AA BEN NRB AH AHlast_img read more

IPL 2019: Aim to win at least two of remaining three games, says Shreyas Iyer

first_imgAfter 14 points in their kitty from 11 games, Delhi Capitals need just one more win from their remaining three games to seal a play-off berth in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) but skipper Shreyas Iyer on Saturday said that his sole focus will be to win at least two of them.Delhi is set to host the bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday and Iyer made it clear that despite their opponents poor show, his side will not take the Virat Kohli-led side lightly. Bangalore has managed to win just four of their 11 games and have to win all of their games from here to keep their play-off hopes alive.Speaking on the eve of the contest a confident Iyer, whose team is on the verge of making it to the next stage, said: “The job is still half done as we need to win at least one of the remaining three games. But our main aim is to win at least two games and that would be the benchmark we want to set for ourselves. Currently we are in a very positive frame of mind and hoping for a victory tomorrow.”When asked about the wicket factor, Iyer said it would be an advantage for his side as the pitch at Ferozshah Kotla and Chepauk stadium, where Delhi will take on hosts Chennai Super Kings on May 1, is of a similar nature.”We are aware of the wicket and have a fair idea how it is playing. In all our remaining games (two in Kotla and one in Chennai), the wicket is quite same and that is something like a blessing in disguise in the current situation,” he opined.advertisementIyer said that with many players leaving the league mid-way for their respective countries to prepare for the World Cup, starting May 30, it will give them an upper hand against Bangalore as their star all-rounder Moeen Ali has gone back to England.”On a wicket like this, it would be an advantage for us as Moeen Ali will not be there in Bangalore’s team and we will try to fully utilise it,” Iyer said.The Delhi skipper however said that he had no idea whether pacer Kasigo Rabada would leave for national duty or not.Iyer added that despite being comfortably placed in the top four on the points table, his team takes every game as a do-or-die affair.”It would be a do-or-die game for them (Bangalore) but we also play every match as a do-or-die one and think we are the underdogs. Ricky (Ponting) has always asked us to go in any match as the underdogs and I believe that gets the best out of everyone. We believe in each other’s success and enjoy it so everything has gone well for us,” the Delhi skipper said.Also Read | Learnt the importance of discipline from MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli: Rishabh Pantlast_img read more

Bret Bielema Might Be A Candidate For This Head Coaching Job

first_imgA closeup of Bret Bielema in an Arkansas jumpsuit.FAYETTEVILLE, AR – NOVEMBER 12: Head Coach Bret Bielema of the Arkansas Razorbacks on the sidelines in the first half of a game against the LSU Tigers at Razorback Stadium on November 12, 2016 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)Earlier today, Kansas announced that head coach David Beaty will not be retained at the end of the season. This isn’t much of a surprise considering how Beaty’s tenure has gone.While he inherited a massive dumpster fire from Charlie Weis, Beaty hasn’t done much to turn things around. He’s just 6-39 with the Jayhawks, though three of those wins have come this season.There are already a handful of coaches being named as potential candidates for KU, but one seems obvious: Bret Bielema.Bielema is currently serving as a consultant to Bill Belichick with the New England Patriots after losing his job at Arkansas last November. While he was with the Razorbacks, he worked for current Kansas AD Jeff Long.If you search Bielema’s name on Twitter, you will see some making the natural connection.And so our Bret Bielema watch begins— Neil W. Blackmon (@nwblackmon) November 4, 2018For the first time ever, in the “Who to follow” thing, Bret Bielema was listed first on my feed today. Universe telling me something? #KUfball— Thor Nystrom (@thorku) November 4, 2018Bret Bielema better get writing another letter to Jeff Long— Luke Zimmermann (@lukezim) November 4, 2018Of course, Bielema is a retread, which might not be the angle that Kansas wants to go. It might take an outside-the-box hire to finally jump start things in Lawrence.For now though, Bielema’s name will be bandied about for the opening.last_img read more

The face, characterised with a thick gunslinger moustache with thin mutton chop beard and a proud smile, is hard to miss. The image of his face and his moustache lingers on in your mind’s eye after the first glance. We are talking about none other than Indian Air Force (IAF) braveheart Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who returned to India after being held captive by Pakistan on February 27.In the wake of the hardship he went through, when you visualise Abhinandan Varthaman’s smiling face, his hard-to-miss gunslinger moustache appears to radiate pride and confidence.His grit and determination further exemplified in his mannerism when he was held by the Pakistan Army.How proud we are to have you !

Smokers Should Look out for Signs of Lung Cancer

first_imgSenior Medical Officer at the National Chest Hospital, Dr. Terry Baker, is urging persons who have been exposed to cigarette smoke over an extended period to look out for signs of lung cancer.Speaking in an interview with JIS News, Dr. Baker, who is a pulmonologist and internist, pointed out that the disease may present itself in myriad ways, and early signs may often be attributed to other conditions.“The person may have a cough, or they may begin to cough up phlegm or mucous that has changed in colour or consistency, or they may begin to cough up blood. They may have chest pain or consistent hoarseness,” she said.She, however, warned that persons may have pain in other parts of the body, such as arthritis. “This is a particular arthritis or inflammation that we see affecting the bones and joints in persons who have lung cancer. The bones and joints may become swollen and very tender.“The cancer may spread to other organs, to the brain (the person may have severe headaches, personality changes or seizures), to the spine or to the bone. You may also have collapse of the spine,” she explained.Dr. Baker pointed out that because there are no early signs or definitive signs that point to an ailment being lung cancer, one has to have a high index of suspicion when somebody presents with particular complaints.“When it becomes clinically apparent, and the person begins to feel sick, is usually when the cancer has been present within the body for quite a while and has now spread or invaded other structures,” she said.“Cancer cells can stay in the lung and multiply, divide and become larger and they stay there for quite a while before the person becomes ill, and that is part of the difficulty with lung cancer. While we recognise and applaud the advances made in terms of treating lung cancer, the five-year survival is very low,” Dr. Baker added.Dr. Baker was, however, quick to assure that having advanced disease does not mean that it will not be treated.“We may not be able to cure, but we will still treat and endeavour to arrest the spread of the growth of the cancer and help the person in terms of overcoming whatever complications they may have due to the presence of the cancer, and generally help them to feel better and to better manage in terms of other issues or complications that may arise,” she explained.Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, with more than breast, prostate and colon cancer combined.Cigarette smoking is associated with a number of other cancers, including cancers of the tongue, breast, cervix, stomach and colon as well as heart disease.National Chest Hospital is the only specialist hospital in the island that specifically treats patients with chest-related illnesses. The month of November is observed worldwide as Lung Cancer Awareness Month.last_img read more

Ohio State wrestler Logan Stieber wins 3rd consecutive national championship

Ohio State redshirt-junior Logan Stieber takes down Notre Dame College sophomore Maurice Miller in the 141-pound match Nov. 15 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 29-11.Credit: Ethan Day / Lantern photographerFor the third straight year, Logan Stieber is the nation’s best.The Ohio State redshirt-junior wrestler became the first Buckeye in program history to win three national titles after defeating No. 4-seed Virginia Tech redshirt-junior Devin Carter Saturday in the 141-pound weight class in Oklahoma City.“(This) feels great,” Stieber said after the victory, according to an OSU press release. “I know Devin is a really, really tough individual … It felt good to get through my offense and ride hard. And my defense was great and I just kept getting after him.”Stieber, a three-time All-American and three-time Big Ten Champion, earned the crown in what was his 21st consecutive match win after jumping out to a 2-0 lead by the end of the first period. Entering the third period with a 5-0 advantage, a pair of takedowns helped him secure the 10-1 win.Stieber wasn’t the only Buckeye wrestler to compete for a national title, as senior Nick Heflin fell in the 197-pound weight class final to Missouri freshman J’Den Cox, 2-1.Heflin, also a three-time All-American and 2014 Big Ten Champion, narrowly missed out on the title as he almost scored a takedown when time expired.

Penn State won its fourth straight national championship after finishing with 109.5 points as a team. read more

Guineas iron ore Vale launches reconstruction of the ConakryKankan railroad

first_imgOn February 22, Vale celebrated the laying of the first track of the Conakry-Kankan railroad, marking the start of the reconstruction of the main link between Conakry and Kankan in Guinea. In April 2010, Vale announced it would invest in Guinea’s Simandou, which will be the largest integrated iron ore mine and infrastructure project ever developed in Africa. Simandou’s first phase involves the development of the Zogota mine, with a dry processing plant, a dedicated railroad and a maritime terminal in the coast of Liberia, as well as a 100km rail spur connecting this railway to Zogota, in Guinea. The initial phase is scheduled to start production in 2012 and will have a capacity of 15 Mt/y. The project’s second phase involves capacity reaching 50 Mt/y in 2020, stemming from the development of blocks 1 and 2, and an additional rail spur connecting them to Zogota.The reconstruction of the Conakry-Kankan is part of Vale’s commitment to the development of Simandou and Guinea’s economic growth. As part of an agreement with the government of Guinea, Vale is investing to refurbish the railroad, used for passenger and general cargo transportation between Guinea’s Conakry capital city and Kankan in the eastern part of the country. With the railway’s rehabilitation, Vale aims to contribute to the social and economic development of the West African nation, potentially creating several thousands of jobs. With Simandou, Vale hopes to bring significant social and economic benefits to the Guinean population. The Conakry-Kankan line, run by the Office National des Chemins de Fer de Guinée, has not operated since 1983. The government’s goal is to rehabilitate the line in cooperation with Vale. The railway was initially built between 1900 and 1914 and had 45 stations. It plays an essential role by serving several towns and opening up the entire sub-region. last_img read more

Rat à trompe géant une nouvelle espèce identifiée

first_imgRat à trompe géant : une nouvelle espèce identifiée ?Kenya – Les naturalistes de la société zoologique de Londres ont obtenu, grâce à des pièges photographiques disposés dans une forêt reculée du Kenya, des images de ce qui pourrait être un nouveau-venu dans la famille méconnue des rats à trompe.  C’est après avoir repéré ce qui lui a semblé être un rat à trompe inconnu que Grace Wambui a décidé de “piéger” le mystérieux animal grâce à des appareils photo à déclenchement automatique. Pari gagné pour cette naturaliste, membre d’une équipe de la société zoologique de Londres (ZSL) qui explore la biodiversité de la forêt de Boni-Dodori, dans le nord-est kenyan.À lire aussiLe remarquable sauvetage d’un petit éléphant orphelin au KenyaD’après les biologistes de la ZSL, le petit mammifère au long museau flexible en forme de trompe pourrait bien être une nouvelle espèce de Macroscelidea, ou rat à trompe. Ce groupe zoologique compte à ce jour dix-sept espèces qui, malgré leur nom, ne sont pas des rongeurs.Enthousiasmés par cette découverte, les biologistes de l’équipe devront cependant poursuivre leurs études pour déterminer s’il s’agit bien d’une nouvelle espèce. Voilà qui, en tout cas, les conforte dans leur conviction que ces forêts, mal connues à cause de leur accès difficile et de l’insécurité qui règne dans la région, sont dotées d’une riche biodiversité. Selon Sam Andanje, du département de la vie sauvage du Kenya, des mesures de préservation s’imposent pour cette zone côtière, menacée par un développement rapide.   Le 17 septembre 2010 à 15:32 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Weather Eye Expect our early fall weather to stay warm and dry

first_imgPatrick Timm is a local weather specialist. His column appears Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Reach him at The almost full moonrise Sunday evening was nothing less than spectacular. And I know the actual full moonrise Monday evening was probably also outstanding. It is so nice to have some nice clear skies and an autumn feel to the air. Could you feel it Monday?I certainly could feel fall in the air with the brisk dry northerly wind. With the dry and cool air mass many locations here in Clark County dipped into the 30s, with at least a few readings at the frost point. East of the Cascades in Washington and Oregon, overnight lows plummeted into the low to mid-20s. It is that time of the year, I guess.We will see highs at 80 degrees or higher today through Friday as a large area of warm high pressure holds strong. Some computer models show increasing clouds and a chance of rain or showers this weekend but I think as the week wears on that may change and we will continue to have dry weather on Saturday and Sunday. Stay tuned.Meanwhile, Monday around the Evergreen State, afternoon temperatures were in the low to mid-60s north of Chehalis and in the low 70s south to Vancouver. The overnight lows will continue to be on the cool side, so a jacket is appropriate for the early morning school bus. Good luck trying to get the kids to wear an outer garment.Vancouver dipped to 43 degrees Monday for the low, with the average low now at 49 degrees. The afternoon high temperature as of 5 p.m. was 72 degrees, one degree below average for the date.last_img read more

Have You Noticed Theres Been a Flurry of Magazine MA

first_imgMore than a few magazine and media executives spent the holidays putting the finishing touches on deal closures. We’re only 3 weeks into January and there’s been a flurry of M&A action—from decently big deals to small. Here’s a recap:Today of course Meredith announced it’s buying from Reader’s Digest Association, advancing a deep dive strategy into the food vertical as fast as RDA is pulling away from it, having also bought Everyday With Rachael Ray from them. The deal closely followed Meredith’s acquisition of FamilyFun from Disney Publishing earlier in the month. Harry Stagnito has sold Stagnito Media to private equity firm Topspin LBO, which also owns his son’s Vermont-based Moose River Media. The deal, says Stagnito, will allow the company to build out its marketing services and data and information products. Edwin V. Avent’s Heart & Soul magazine has been sold to a group of investors called Brown Curry Detry Taylor & Associates. BCDT’s principals all have direct ties to the magazine, having worked for it in one capacity or another.Hanley Wood is now owned by Oaktree Capital Management, Strategic Value Partners and Tennenbaum Capital Partners after going through a major recapitalization, cutting its debt from $410 million to $80 million.In a retreat from the U.S. market, Future plc sold its U.S. group’s Music Division, including 3 magazines, to NewBay Media for $3 million. Revenues for the group in Future’s fiscal 2011 were about $13 million. Grand View Media has taken over management of Shooting Sports Retailer magazine. While not technically a sale, Grand View may have an option to buy after a certain period of time and certain performance goals are met.F+W Media is expanding its food vertical coverage, too. It bought World Tea Media, which produces the World Tea Expo as well as associated editorial products.  Vibe Holdings has been merged with BlackBook Media and Access Network, forming Vibe Media. The combined entity will be owned by the Yucaipa Johnson Fund, backed by Ron Burkle and Earvin “Magic” Johnson, and InterMedia Partners.Bangor Metro, a regional magazine serving the Bangor, Maine region, has been sold to Cashman Asset Management.last_img read more

How does Mike Dunleavy like his cookies More chocolate chip than dough

first_img10 varieties of cookies arranged in the Governor’s Mansion dining room for the annual open house on December 11, 2018 (Photo by David Purdy/KTOO)On Tuesday afternoon, Gov. Mike Dunleavy hosted the annual holiday open house at the governor’s mansion in Juneau. The event was an opportunity for the community to meet the governor and first lady in their new home, as well as sample a few cookies.That second part is a big priority for some of the open house’s younger guests.“We go pretty much every year,” said 11-year-old Dane Hubert, waiting in line on Calhoun Avenue with his younger brother Jaeger and their parents. Asked his favorite kind of cookie, Dane replied, “That’s a hard decision. … There’s a lot of different types of cookies.”“The M&M one is really good,” Jaeger supplied.Juneauites — mostly families like the Huberts — lined up outside in the snow starting around 3 p.m. Volunteers ushered guests into the elaborately decorated mansion to shake hands with Dunleavy, Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer and their wives, and then on to the dining room where cookies were already piled high. Children’s music groups performed in the living room as guests milled around, admiring gingerbread houses and sipping cider.This year all 10 varieties of cookies were baked in-house by mansion staff and Creations by Cynthia. Lisa Boman, executive residence manager, said that cookie dough preparation for the holiday meet-and-greet started in late September and wrapped up by the end of October.“We have a little over 23,000 cookies out there,” she said. “And in order to do that in-house, two people, it was a project.”In her seven years as residence manager, Boman says they’ve never run out of cookies. Leftovers go to nonprofits in Juneau like the AWARE shelter, the fire and police departments and the Glory Hall.Gov. Dunleavy’s favorite cookie, if you were wondering?“Chocolate chip,” he said. “More chocolate than chip — I guess, more chocolate chip than dough.”last_img read more

Protein lifetime and the stability of cell structures

first_img( —The ability of a cell to move, replicate, and recast itself according to the needs of the organism which it serves, comes at it price. The extreme flexibility of cells takes its origin from the constant turnover of nearly every component with which they are made. There are a few exceptions to this general principle for a few protected regions like, for example, the lens of the eye, or the collagen matrix within the extracellular space. In a new paper published in Cell, researchers show that certain components of the pore complex that controls the flow of components out of the nucleus, escape the normal turnover cycle, and may persist for the lifetime of the cell. Some Nuclear pore complex proteins can last for the lifetime of the cell. Credit: More information: Identification of Long-Lived Proteins Reveals Exceptional Stability of Essential Cellular Structures, Cell, Volume 154, Issue 5, 971-982, 29 August 2013. DOI: 10.1016/j.cell.2013.07.037AbstractIntracellular proteins with long lifespans have recently been linked to age-dependent defects, ranging from decreased fertility to the functional decline of neurons. Why long-lived proteins exist in metabolically active cellular environments and how they are maintained over time remains poorly understood. Here, we provide a system-wide identification of proteins with exceptional lifespans in the rat brain. These proteins are inefficiently replenished despite being translated robustly throughout adulthood. Using nucleoporins as a paradigm for long-term protein persistence, we found that nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) are maintained over a cell’s life through slow but finite exchange of even its most stable subcomplexes. This maintenance is limited, however, as some nucleoporin levels decrease during aging, providing a rationale for the previously observed age-dependent deterioration of NPC function. Our identification of a long-lived proteome reveals cellular components that are at increased risk for damage accumulation, linking long-term protein persistence to the cellular aging process. The ‘weakest link’ in the aging proteome Journal information: Cell Extracellular proteins, like crystallins of the lens, or components of cartilage, accumulate damage over time that compromises their function. Clouded vision or stiff joints are the familiar result. Inside cells however, an intricate accounting system exists whereby proteins are stochastically festooned with sequential markers for degradation—much like a trainee might predictably progresses through the colored ranks of Karate. In yeast, it has been reported that the average protein half-life is just 90 minutes, while for mammals it may be more like 1 or 2 days.An exception to this rule is our DNA, which owes its long life to dedicated repair mechanisms that patch up damage. For proteins however, no such sequence-level mechanisms are known to exist. The histone proteins that bind DNA have also been observed, in some cases, to be exceptionally long-lived. Measuring these lifetimes reliably, particularly for the older generation, requires some special experimental considerations. The researchers used a method called pulse-chase labeling, which requires feeding newborn rats a diet containing exclusively the 15N isotope as the pulse. A normal 14N diet, the chase, was begun after 6 weeks, and the animals then sacrificied at various times over the ensuing year. The cellular components were then fractionated and mass spectrometry was used to comprehensively identify long-lived proteins in the brain. The lifespans of a few components of the nuclear pore complex (NPC) were particularly striking. The NPC contains multiple copies of over 30 different subvarieties of the nucleoporin (Nup) family alone. Two particular subcomplexes of Nup proteins, which serve as scaffold components, where found to resist degradation. The researchers also measured translation levels of these and 11,000 other proteins to measure synthesis levels concomitantly. Every long-lived protein was found to also be actively involved in translation.Unlike other large protein complexes, such as ribosomes or proteasomes, the NPC apparently does not turnover as an entire complex. Instead individual subcomplexes are exchanged at specific rates as new copies are synthesized. What mechanisms might administer this exchange, if any, are as yet unknown. The researchers found, in particular, that 25% of those proteins within a certain complex (Nup205), have not been replaced after a year. Together with the histone H3.1 protein, that stat earns them the title of most persistent mammalian intracellular protein. The authors speculate that disassembly of entire NPCs might not be practical for the cell because dismantling these key components could jeopardize the integrity of the nuclear envelope. Important nuclear substructure, possibly including epigenetic depots critical for transmitting information beyond the lifetime of an individual cell might then be compromised. They also note that long-lived proteins might also be sources of vulnerability within the proteome, particular those that would be exposed to harmful metabolites or chemical interlopers. Identification of these elements may therefore be important in understanding the aging process in postmitotic cells.center_img Citation: Protein lifetime and the stability of cell structures (2013, September 4) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Explore further © 2013 This document is subject to copyright.

Michael Jackson and Paul McCartneys Feud Over Beatles Song Rights

Photo by Oli Gill CC BY-SA 2.0Three years later, McCartney and Jackson would lock horns in a real-world battle, but not over a girl.According to Billboard Magazine, the conflict started in 1985, when Jackson paid nearly $50 million to ATV Music (now called “Sony Music”) to purchase a 4,000-song catalog.Michael Jackson performing his song “Jam” as part of his Dangerous world tour in Europe in 1992. Photo by Casta03 CC BY-SA 3.0The catalog contained 250 songs by the John Lennon/Paul McCartney songwriting duo.

To add more insult to injury, Jackson had actually outbid McCartney on the deal.John Lennon (left) and Paul McCartney (right) in 1964.The fact that McCartney and Jackson were friends and had recorded multiple songs together – including: “Say, Say, Say,” “The Girl is Mine,” “The Man” and “Girlfriend,” – surely made the deal more of a betrayal. Their friendship never recovered.But how did Paul McCartney, one of the most famous pop songwriters of the 20th century, end up in a position where another artist could buy the rights to his songs?When The Beatles’ debut album “Please Please Me” was released in March 1963 their manager, Brian Epstein, published the songs with the company Northern Songs.Please Please Me, side 1, with original Parlophone gold and black label.

Harrison was not happy about this, and even wrote a song about his meager cut in the deal.Jackson performing in June 1988. Photo by Zoran Veselinovic CC-BY-SAIn 1969, Dick James sold his stake in the company to ATV Music. John Lennon and Paul McCartney tried to outbid ATV, but they didn’t have enough money. After ATV had taken control of the Beatles’ song catalog, Lennon and McCartney sold their company stakes to ATV as well.So, when ATV Music went up for sale, they offered McCartney one more chance to bid on the rights to the Lennon-McCartney song catalog. This is when Michael Jackson stepped in and paid $47.5 million to become the owner of the catalog.McCartney and Lennon, 1964.In 2006, the matter became more complicated for McCartney when Michael Jackson, faced with a potential bankruptcy, agreed to sell half of his ownership in the company back to Sony/ATV. This would give Sony 75 percent ownership of the Lennon-McCartney song catalog, which, according to The New York Times, was then worth about $1 billion.McCartney was left with only one shot to get his songs back. According to the United States Copyright Act of 1967, any publishing rights to songs written before 1978 could be regained by their author after 56 years. Since the first Beatles songs had been written between the years of 1962 and 1963, McCartney would have to wait until 2018 before he could hope to get his songs back.Michael Jackson’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.Then, in 2009, Michael Jackson died by overdosing on the anesthetic “propfol” – he was 50 at the time. Jackson’s share of the Lennon-McCartney catalog became a part of his estate, which was controlled by his attorney John Branca and by John McClain.In 2015, McCartney began the fight to reclaim 32 Beatles songs written in 1962. In 2016 Sony finally agreed to pay $750 million to buy out the half of Sony/ATV which was owned by the Jackson Estate. This made Sony the sole owner of 750,000 songs, including the Lennon-McCartney catalog.Read another story from us: A Hard Day’s Night (in Jail): Paul McCartney Arrested for Arson in 1960This deal marked the official end of Jackson and McCartney’s battle – which had literally become a fight to the death.

first_img News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic. The multi-year… read more Most women who undergo partial mastectomy (lumpectomy) surgery for breast cancer also complete a course of radiotherapy delivered to the whole of the affected breast (called external beam radiotherapy, EBRT). EBRT has been shown to reduce the risk of cancer recurring in the breast, but it can cause unpleasant side-effects, and requires women to attend radiotherapy centres for 20 days after surgery, which can cause serious difficulties for women who live far from radiotherapy centres, especially those in remote or very rural areas. In some cases, women who are eligible for lumpectomy may end up undergoing full mastectomy, simply because they cannot meet the demands of subsequent radiotherapy treatment required by partial tissue removal.Without radiotherapy treatment, women who undergo lumpectomy are at risk of the cancer recurring, usually either at, or near, the site of the original tumour. This has led several groups of researchers to investigate whether a single dose of radiation, specifically targeted to the site of the tumour, and delivered during or soon after surgery, might offer a viable alternative treatment to reduce the risk of recurrence. Two articles published today in The Lancet and The Lancet Oncologyreveal new results from two trials assessing two different methods of delivering targeted radiation in this way.TARGIT-A trialIn The Lancet, an international team of researchers, led by Professor Michael Baum and Professor Jayant Vaidya, of University College London, UK, investigated the performance of TARGIT (where radiation is delivered to the tumour site via a miniature X-ray emitting device) compared with a standard EBRT course of daily doses for 3 to 6 weeks. Over 12 years, 1721 women received the study treatment (TARGIT), compared to a control group of 1730 women who received standard EBRT treatment. The TARGIT technique was originally developed by Professor Michael Baum, Professor Jayant Vaidya, and Professor Jeffrey Tobias, and has been tested in 33 different centres since 1998.The 3451 patients who participated in the final analysis were made up from two separate strata, equivalent to two trials run in parallel. The first included 2298 patients, 1140 of whom received TARGIT at the same time of the initial surgery (as originally envisaged by the researchers); these participants were compared with 1158 patients receiving conventional EBRT. However, after receiving requests from some clinicians, they extended the trial to include 1143 women, 562 of whom were allocated EBRT, and 581 of whom were allocated to receive TARGIT as a second procedure an average of 37 days after surgery (postpathology stratum).The trial was intended to reflect real-life practice as far as possible, so women who had received TARGIT at the time of surgery but were subsequently shown to carry high risk features for recurrence also received EBRT. Overall, about 80% patients in the TARGIT group completed their surgery and radiotherapy under a single anaesthetic, without needing any supplemental EBRT.The researchers specified at the outset that if the difference in 5-year local recurrence between the two treatments was less than 2.5% then TARGIT should be considered “non-inferior” (as good as) standard radiotherapy. Across all trial participants, the difference in 5-year risk for cancer coming back in the breast (local recurrence) was within the originally set limit of 2.5%, meaning that a single TARGIT treatment was non-inferior to EBRT in controlling cancer. Furthermore, the overall mortality was 3.9% with TARGIT and 5.3% with EBRT, due to significantly fewer deaths from cardiovascular causes and other cancers. When TARGIT was given at the same time as lumpectomy, as the researchers originally planned, the local recurrence and breast cancer deaths were similar in the TARGIT and EBRT groups, and deaths from other causes were significantly reduced with TARGIT (1.3% for TARGIT vs. 4.4% for EBRT).According to Professor Vaidya, “The most important benefit of TARGIT for a woman with breast cancer is that it allows her to complete her entire local treatment at the time of her operation, with lower toxicity to the breast, the heart and other organs Our research supports the use of TARGIT concurrent with lumpectomy, provided patients are selected carefully, and should allow patients and their clinicians to make a more informed choice about individualising their treatment, saving time, money, breasts, and lives.”*ELIOT trialIn The Lancet Oncology, researchers in Italy, led by Professor Umberto Veronesi, of the European Institute of Oncology in Milan, report results from a trial of a slightly different method of delivering targeted radiation, using a device which emits electron radiation to the tumour site (electron intraoperative radiotherapy, or ELIOT). 651 women attending the European Institute of Oncology in Milan for early breast cancer treatment received ELIOT during lumpectomy surgery, and a control group of 654 women received standard EBRT after lumpectomy.The researchers distinguished between true local recurrence of breast cancer (occurring in exactly the same site as the tumour), and recurrence of cancer in the same breast that had been operated on (ipsilateral recurrence). In both cases, after 5 years, recurrence was significantly higher in the ELIOT group than the control group – 21 women (2.5%) in the ELIOT group experienced local recurrence, rising to 35 women (4.4%) when any ipsilateral recurrence was included, compared to just four women (0.4%) in the control group who experienced any recurrence.Despite the different rates of breast cancer recurrence, overall survival at 5 years did not differ significantly between the ELIOT and control groups (34 deaths in ELIOT vs. 31 deaths in the control group); there were no significant differences between the number of deaths due to breast cancer, or due to any other cause.For the patients in the ELIOT group, the researchers examined the characteristics of tumours where relapse occurred, allowing them to identify several features associated with recurrence, including large tumour (>2cm), and oestrogen-receptor negative (ER-negative).According to Professor Veronesi, “For women who receive intra-operative radiotherapy, identifying the features most commonly associated with recurrence of cancer in the breast that has been operated on will allow us to identify the patients most likely to benefit from subsequent external radiotherapy.””Although our results show that 5-year rates of local recurrence were significantly higher in women who received ELIOT, we need to bear in mind that for some women, the benefits of not needing to complete weeks of radiotherapy will outweigh a higher risk of local recurrence. It’s also encouraging that after 5 years, overall mortality rates do not differ between women who received ELIOT and those who received standard treatment. Advances such as intraoperative radiotherapy might help to further improve the quality of life for patients, and the findings of our trial will enable clinicians to better use biomolecular factors along with traditional clinical and histopathological factors to identify the patients who are ideal candidates for partial breast irradiation.”Writing in a linked Comment on both studies, Professor David Azria and Dr Claire Lemanski of the Institut du Cancer Montpellier, France, suggest that although it is clear that further research will be needed to identify the patients least likely to experience recurrence of cancer after undergoing surgery and intraoperative radiotherapy, “The new data from TARGIT-A and ELIOT reinforce our conviction that intraoperative radiotherapy during breast-conserving surgery is a reliable alternative to conventional postoperative fractionated irradiation, but only in a carefully selected population at low risk of local recurrence.” News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).

Gender diversity starts with culture says IHG

first_imgIHG Future Leaders intake for 2016It’s a corporate Australia-wide issue that representation of females in leadership is far exceeded by their male counterparts.Whilst the hospitality industry is not immune from the challenge, IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) is investing in company culture to build a more sustainable model for gender diversity into the future.IHG COO Australasia & Japan, Karin Sheppard – the most senior authority in the region and a product of IHG’s global opportunities having held senior roles in the Middle East, Asia and Europe – acknowledges the gender gap in management level, particularly hotel general managers.Karin Sheppard, IHG COO Australasia & Japan“This is an industry-wide challenge; to create a more diverse workplace and encourage more females into general manager roles,” Ms Sheppard said.“It can be difficult to balance commercial realities with contemporary life – women often take time out from their career for family responsibilities, but it is the responsibility of employers to adapt and create an environment and culture that acknowledges these considerations.”IHG have implemented the most generous paid parental leave in the hospitality industry in Australia offering six weeks paid leave after two years employment which is increases to 12 weeks as tenure grows – valid across 80% of its hotels and at corporate office level. As a result around 95% of women return to IHG after parental leave.“There is an even gender representation on the AMEA Regional Operating Committee which Australia and New Zealand forms part of, with similar levels in my local leadership teams,” Ms Sheppard said.“This year we had a very encouraging 70% intake of women in our Future Leaders program which identifies high potential talent – all of which have expressed a desire to become General Managers in the future.”The 2015 Workplace Gender Equality report indicated that IHG’s gender pay gap is lower than both organisations of the same size and the accommodation/food service sector overall.Despite the progress Ms Sheppard believes there is more to be done.“As we mark International Women’s Day it is important to celebrate some of the significant progress made to date.  Our aspiration is to create a culture that embraces diversity at all levels of the organisation and we remain committed to achieving this,” she said.IHG are set to open over ten hotels over the next three years in Australasia and in a competitive environment for sourcing talent, the company is focused on investment in its employees.“A strong diversity agenda is critical to the continued success of our business, as we seek to attract the strongest pool of talent to sustain the growth expected in this region,” she said.

Turkey’s appeal as a potential holiday destination has increased thanks to an improvement in the quality of accommodation available in the country, it has been claimed.Nigel Harris, chief executive at Artemis Travel, believes Britons are looking for a combination of good accommodation, flexibility on cheap flights to Turkey and value for money when it comes to booking their summer vacation this year.He suggests that Turkey scores favourably in all three categories, and where once its downfall would have been the standard of accommodation, there has been a “definite” improvement in this area.”In the past, it was seen as a last minute choice, with poor quality accommodation,” he commented.”That has changed now and there is a definite move towards having very good accommodation out there; hotels and self catering [accommodation] have very good facilities.”Research conducted by M&S Money conforms with the view that more Brits are booking cheap flights to Turkey this year.The financial services provider’s figures show sales of the Turkish lira have increased by 46 percent in the first quarter of 2009 compared with the equivalent period in 2008.

Limassol port workers declare work stoppage for Friday

first_imgWorkers at the Limassol port are to go on a two-hour work stoppage on Friday morning to protest over the long delay in reaching an agreement with their employer over their collective agreement.Trade unions that represent the workers said that the work stoppage would take place between 8am and 10am.The decision was taken after another round of consultations between the unions and the port’s managing companies failed. The consultations are being arbitrated by the transport ministry that offered to facilitate the talks in a bid to help bridge differences.A representative of the workers told the Cyprus News Agency that in addition to the delay in achieving a collective agreement with the new managers of the Limassol port, there are a number of technical problems and other outstanding issues concerning dock workers.He criticised what he described as the indifference of the employers and the transport ministry to solve the problems and meet the dock workers’ demands.The two-hour work stoppage, he said, was not intended to create tension but as a leverage to resolve the dispute.The workers downed tools earlier in the year over the same issue.An impromptu work stoppage last October ended after union reps received written reassurances from the workers’ employer, Eurogate Container Terminal, over the negotiations for the collective agreement.Earlier in the same week, workers from P&O Maritime Cyprus had stopped working for two hours, saying their working conditions were difficult, and that they worked long hours and shifts.Their unions said at the time that there had been no change in working conditions despite four-month long efforts to reach an agreement. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoYahoo SearchBack Pain Treatments That Might Surprise You.

38 died in a plane

38 died in a plane crash with his wife and sister-in-law on July 16 1999 “He was lost on that troubled night but we will always wake for him so that his time which was not doubled but cut in half will live forever in our memory and in our beguiled and broken hearts” then-Sen Ted Kennedy said in a eulogy for his nephew an American icon turned magazine editor Kennedy outlived his nephew by 10 years passing away in 2009 after nearly a half-century in the US Senate In that same eulogy Kennedy praised the “lifelong mutual admiration society” shared between JFK Jr and his sister Caroline who now serves as the United State ambassador to Japan Kennedy was often asked whether he would further the political legacy of his father who died when his son was only two years old JFK Jr once said of his father “He inspired a lot of hope and created a sense of possibility and then the possibility was cut short and never realized” Read TIME’s special 1999 cover story marking JFK Jr’s death here Contact us at editors@timecomIn the winter of 1984 I had come down from Ahmedabad to cover the BJP’s National Council meeting in Pune The late Pramod Mahajan had taken me to the press room set up by the party to facilitate the media’s work in covering the event At random and because he was the first person we came across Mahajan introduced me to Ashok Row Kavi The introduction was merely by name and the newspapers for which we worked Ashok extended it by saying "I am gay" There was no reason for this but from what he said today on TV soon after the Supreme Court read down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code society has to be educated to accept not just the judgment but also issues stemming from the verdict Ashok spoke of gay marriages the right to adoption and inheritance and now it strikes me that what came as a surprise self-introduction was his campaign from then itself The key point he always made to this enduring monogamous heterosexual was to accept him for what homosexuals are He was not ashamed of being gay File image of Ashok Row Kavi Reuters This fellow journalist is perhaps the first Indian homosexual to step out of the closet even though he had confessed to it and had sought comfort to mentally come to terms with it with a spell in a monastery Once he decided he was what he was he started on the long journey to what happened on Thursday with help and coordination from others in the LGBT community This is no bid to belittle any contribution from the innumerable people from the LGBT community and their sympathisers I personally know no other homosexuals No one else has told me he or she was one I am sharing what I know about one of the heroes of a day that saw the court speaking its mind about how the legislature did nothing in decades to bring the growing community into the mainstream Ashok had the habit of naming many big names in private conversations as being gay They included actors lawyers judges and big names in business and academia that would shock me because those from the list I knew gave no indication of being homosexual "That’s the point" he would emphasise "That is the fear of the law and the society" One does not know if those he mentioned will now step out of the closet but that would be their private decision There is no reason to either expect or demand that they do so for that is their choice as sexual orientation itself is a very private issue It may take time for the significance of the decriminalisation of homosexuality to sink in The fear of ostracism of course could linger because we in India don’t respect the law as much as we need to Ashok came out of the closet long ago I recall him visiting me at home one day when I had another stay-in guest an eminent person of Indian origin who was a senior scientist in the US There too Ashok added to my introduction of him saying "I am gay" Apart from this campaign to seek a judicial reading down of the archaic law Ashok set up a magazine Dost to help the

the kids are OK” Police identified John Spincken as the father who jumped off the Wanaque Bridge on Interstate 287 on Monday night while holding his two sons ages 1 and 3 Authorities had received a call that evening from a friend of Spincken’s wife who reported that he was threatening to harm the children After tracking Spincken through his cellphone police found his empty car on the bridge DePuyt told the AP Spincken appears to have climbed on to his car’s roof to clear a 12-ft-high fence that is meant to deter people from jumping off the bridge police said Spincken 37 was pronounced dead at the scene and the boys were found nearby with non life-threatening injuries Police said tree branches helped cushion their fall “I was expecting the worst outcome when I arrived at the scene and I was amazed last night and even this morning on the condition of the children” DePuyt said The boys whose injuries were not disclosed were taken to a hospital and reported to be in fair condition Police are trying to determine what caused Spincken to jump DePuyt said Social media accounts that the AP identified as belonging to Spincken show a proud father who posted photos of his toddlers and wife On Father’s Day of 2015 he posted a photo of gifts from his children on Facebook Quoting the writer Elizabeth Stone Spincken captioned the photo: “Making the decision to have a child is momentous

14 2012 3:14 am Related News So that critical items arent in short supply Thats the way to fight inflation Persistently high food inflation has been attributed to a black box called structural problems of Indian agriculture Howeverthis neither helps in understanding the dynamics of food inflation nor in devising the right strategies to quell it For a startwe need to recognise that the prime contributors to food inflation are not cereals like rice and wheat Insteadthey are pulsesfruitsvegetables and the so-called protein basket that includes meat and milk If we take the January-March period of this yearaverage inflation in cereals was a meagre 4 per cent The average in pulses in the same period was 97 per cent; in eggsmeat and fish it was 184 per cent This is part of a longer trend where over the past five years or so the relative price of non-cereal food items has risen vis-a-vis cereals The key to solving the food inflation puzzle then is to answer the question: why hasnt this sustained shift in relative prices brought about an appropriate supply response that would have led to a correction in the inflation differential Why has the farmer not shifted his cropping pattern from rice and wheat to pulses or vegetables and increased the supply of the latter The reasons for this disconnect between relative price changes and expected shifts in cropping patterns differ across items but there are common factors For examplepulses are fundamentally different from cereals since they need nutrients and energy for synthesising both proteins and carbohydrates unlike cereals that need to synthesise only carbohydrates This makes them more vulnerable to the vagaries of weather than either rice or wheat and thus riskier to cultivate This risk would have been mitigated if farmers had better marketing and price support But unlike cereals where there is a procurement price system run by the government that offers a minimum support price and private trade that has developed alongsidethis is not true of pulses Though the government declares a minimum support price for most pulsesprocurement operations are far less effective than those for cereals Thus farmers could see a complete collapse in prices if the crop is good The lack of a robust marketing network also implies that in periods of deficitwhen retail prices actually pick upfarm gate prices remain subdued It is not surprising then that in a number of the major pulses-producing states (MPRajasthanMaharashtra and UP)cultivation has been pushed to marginalnon-irrigated land Farmers have also been reluctant to invest in fertilisers and other nutrients or experiment with high-yielding but more expensive varieties of pulses As a consequenceyields have stagnated From about 590 kg/hectare in the 1990sthe average yield for pulses (averaged across major categories) has risen to barely 600 kg/hectare in the 2000s The average annual growth rate in the output of pulses is less than 1 per cent This is alarming since pulses are the major source of proteins for Indians and the population growth is about 2 per cent For fruits and vegetablescropping risks stem from the absence of a cold chain and an inadequate food processing industry Given these risksfarmers are reluctant to follow price signals and commit more land to these items instead of cereals Post-harvest waste of fruits and vegetables is as high as 50 per centand higher output simply translates into higher levels of wastage and a collapse in farm-gate prices A thriving food-processing industry could have provided producers an assured market and relative price stability But thatalasis not the case since food processing is confined to only about 2-3 per cent of fruit and vegetable output Thailandin comparisonprocesses 30 per cent and Brazil 70 per cent The milk sector presents a curious irony India is the largest milk producer in the world with an annual output of 96 million tonnes The per capita consumption is higher than the minimum consumption norms prescribed by the WHO Howeverthese aggregates are shored up by the success of the cooperative movement in Gujarat (NDDB or Amul)which began in the 1970sand a handful of cooperatives in other states A number of states are severely deficit in milk The result again is sustained high prices of milk and its impact on food inflation To make a dent in milk priceswe need an Amul in every stateproviding procurement and marketing support to millions of milk-producers who are now outside any safety net The solution to food inflation thus lies in recognising the specific problems that plague Indian agriculture Merely trying to increase yields by increasing supply varieties and cheaper nutrients will not be adequate The real challenge is to realign cultivation with price signals that reflect the surpluses and deficits in different items For thiswe need to de-risk the cultivation of critical items that are in short supply This would ensure that the farmers are willing and able to use better inputs Some policy imperatives follow For onewe need a step-jump in investments both in food processing and in supply chain for perishables Whether this could come through higher foreign investment or greater domestic resources is for our policymakers to figure out The marketing apparatus for items such as pulses and vegetables has to be revamped so that producers are assured both of a minimum return on production and a share in higher revenues when prices move up To achieve thiswe need a more effective procurement system (based on the MSP) for items like pulses where government purchase can play a role in mitigating risk We also need private trade to develop alongside For fruitsvegetables and milk we need large corporate participation in the post-harvest supply chain This would break the current monopoly of private tradersreduce the tiers of intermediation and ultimately ensure a better farm gate price for the cultivator There are subtler strategies as well In pulsesfor instancewe need to work on developing varieties with shorter cropping cycles so that they can be grown on the same land as wheat or rice without affecting their cropping cycles This kind of multi-cropping could reduce farmers risks substantiallywhile simultaneously boosting the output of pulses There has been limited success with this in the case of chana and mung Agricultural Price Commission Chairman Ashok Gulati has suggested the possibility of entering into long-term production contracts for pulses with countries like Tanzaniawhich have fallow land and weather and soil conditions conducive to cultivating pulses This will enable us to bridge the domestic supply gap but with some certainty about import prices Whether it is through long-term contracts or purchases in the spot marketwe need to import food items aggressively to bridge the domestic demand-supply gap Some analysts will no doubt raise red flags over what this will do to the current account deficit The way around this problem is not to hold back on imports but instead to export more At around 80 million tonnesthe governments foodgrain stocks are about two and a half times the buffer stocking norms and a large part of this is rotting because of the lack of storage facilities We are literally sitting on a mountain of grain that we can export

months trying to zero in on the theme for the work because we wanted to ensure that it was not contradictory or controversial” said Harinder Singh who was the superintendent of the prison during the period of the project but has been transferred since The wall art was completed under the supervision of India Vision Foundation an NGO that has been conducting art and painting classes for inmates at Bhondsi prison since 2013 operating with the idea that “art therapy” can help in reformation of convicts It was as a result of these classes that the idea of giving inmates a wall to use as a canvas to showcase their work came up “In several prisons art work is done to change the ambience of the facility but the uniqueness here lies in the identity of the artists who have made the paintings Usually artists are hired from outside or students from an art institution are called but here the inmates themselves have done the work” said Monica Dhawan director of India Vision Foundation Deliberations on the theme began in February 2016 and eight inmates all serving life sentences for various crimes started work on the wall in April 2016 under the supervision of Natasha Chadha Bhambri

readers might recall became a popular name overnight This bug occurred partly due to the practice of representing a year with its last two digits — the year 1998 as x98 1999 as x99 and so on When we entered the new millennium the computers got confused — is x00 the next year 2000 or 1900 Is the year a leap year or not (2000 is but 1900 is not) Moving forward what would x01 x02 etc mean In effect the machines did not anticipate or understand what it meant to move into the next century I think their lack of comprehension was similar to that of my generation Our transition into the next millennium wasn’t smooth Instead of taking just another assured step where all that changed was the date in the homework and classwork columns it was like being swept away by powerful winds and hurled into alien territory The internet of course was the most powerful of these winds of sudden change Not only did it herald an age of information an age of too much information but it also mapped a new world where physical distances had little significance Before we knew it we were in Yahoo chatrooms and Orkut communities debating with like-minded people from around the country if not the world stalking the other sex connecting with estranged friends and befriending strangers In schools we made friends based on accidents — who sat next to us who used the same bus or auto rickshaw Not anymore We were no longer restricted to forming acquaintances based on geographical limitations Age sex location were conversations starters not enders The second of these forces was that of globalisation — the earth becoming a flatland as a renowned economist put it Suddenly we were looking and were compelled to look at ourselves from new vantage points From the outside in We realised we were part of a larger world a living thriving world — unlike the dead ones on the pages of an atlas — where many kinds of people and cultures existed The amoral Manhattan lifestyle of How I Met Your Mother and Friends for instance fascinated us and the cute adventurous and uninhibitedly fantastical life of children in Japanese manga gave flight to our imaginations Some of us were intrigued by war movies and through them deliberated on the lasting impacts of the Holocaust imperialism and the quest for democracy in the Middle East And others like me came to terms with the fact that Nagraj Super Commando Dhruv and their nemeses weren’t wholly original conceptions nor were some of our favourite Bollywood flicks In the light of this new knowledge this exposure we found ourselves questioning our identity and discovered as a result the power to redefine ourselves The power to constantly unlearn and relearn Once we were away from home — in the hostels of our colleges in metros for jobs on the road while travelling — we didn’t have to carry on the narratives that were handed to us We didn’t have to behave strictly as a Baniya or Brahmin as a “north Indian” or “south Indian” or “Bong” a native or non-native to a city as “upper middle class” or “lower middle class” or even as a “decent girl” or a “suitable boy” We could be anything For good or bad we became and aspired to be rootless A branch cut off from the vine The third and an oft overlooked factor is our physical coming of age I was 13 years old when the famous Y2K bug made headlines I was smart enough to know that the naked pictures of celebrity actors on a certain popular Indian site were fake but I was naive and still fixated with them I had three email IDs — on AOL USAnet and netfunducom (for which I also received personalised visiting cards) — and I had no clue what to do with them Kids my age were driven by curiosity Unconcerned about potential harm and unmindful of benefits we explored this other world and escaped the one in which we were restricted by default In which everyone is restricted by default And look where we are now As a result of our rootlessness we have become a generation of wanderers We switch companies cities partners We become atheist one year practising Buddhist the next never taking our religious identities too seriously (in the last few months there has been evidence to the contrary but I would like to continue to hold this belief) Our cricket icons retired one by one — and we looked for new heroes new franchises new sports We have been in constant flux But reason has found its way with us and we understand — the preparation for MBA IAS bank entrance exams has made us understand — what it means to read write and think critically So that we score well in general knowledge and awareness sections we have read editorials of newspapers and award-winning contemporary literature The practice has enriched us without our knowledge We have also spent hours on Wikipedia and are well aware of all the isms and logies from Marxism to Scientology from Taoism to Freudian psychology We have been sufficiently enchanted and disillusioned with them in turns Our rootlessness has eventually become the fountainhead of our liberation The year-end is a time to look back and reflect And as I do that I wonder if the ripples of the effect of that turbulent hurling into this century can still be felt I am an electronics engineer who left a well-paying (and “prestigious”) PSU job to embrace writing and poverty I am still unmarried I have still not bought an apartment or a car not rooted

— that can find out if a video clip had undergone a voice over video mixing or editing This one we have found out is genuine Now we challenge the Trinamool to prove us otherwise They do not want to

investigation Because both parties need each other” Drawing a parallel between the Centre and the state’s attitude in curbing students’ movement Salim said: “What the Centre has done at JNU the state
