Diálogo Interview With Jamaica Chief Of Defense Staff: Major General Antony Anderson

first_img Major General Antony Anderson: DIÁLOGO: I made that comment in the context of the reality that for a small state it’s not going to be possible to have your armed forces not get involved, when the problem is exceeding the capacity of the police for any number of reasons. Recognizing that, you have to get past the point of reluctance and get to the point that this is reality and how do we best do that mission. It’s one of the missions we have and it was in that context that I was saying that. Over the years, we’ve developed quite a good synergy with our police force and I think it’s as good as it’s been at the moment, because we do a lot of joint work, but behind the scenes we do a lot supportive work as well. Even if one country wins this fight by normalizing their internal situation, wouldn’t it still make you vulnerable? The armed forces went through a defense review in 2006 that outlines clearly what roles it would be required to take on. These roles are from our national security strategy, which is an all of government document. We pull the capabilities we require, and then of course, we look at the capabilities we have and the gaps we have and determine how to fill those. When you actually do an analysis, there are a number of capabilities that you require that may involve more structural changes, more doctrinal changes, and then of course there are those things that are associated with actual expenditure and budget support, like equipment and infrastructure. So as you look at the range that gives you a capability, the most important thing is to decide what you are going to be doing and what you need to do it. DIÁLOGO: DIÁLOGO: DIÁLOGO: Those are a lot of priorities… Do you feel the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI) will contribute to this regional cooperation? Major General Antony Anderson: DIÁLOGO: Major General Antony Anderson: Major General Antony Anderson: Major General Antony Anderson: We are doing it in a number of ways: through direct support with soldiers and joint patrolling and getting involved in any type of police actions there are in terms if the need to conduct check points, but that is only on the front end of it. On the back end of it, we provide our planning skills and bring them to bear on situations that they may face or we face jointly, so we conduct joint training. We offer training and course development for and with the police, so on that side of things, on the side where you develop the human capital to take on new challenges we support the police in that way as well as with intelligence. What is the benefit of working with other countries in the region and the United States? The most important topic discussed during the Caribbean Nations Security Conference, hosted by the United States Southern Command and Trinidad and Tobago in Port of Spain, from February 23-24, was countering illicit trafficking, a trans-national challenge which requires trans-national cooperation and partnerships. Diálogo spoke more in depth about this and other subjects with the Chief of Defense of Jamaica, Major General Antony Anderson, one of the presenters at the event. You stated at the conference: “We are past the point where we think the military has no business in law enforcement. This is the military’s business.” Please elaborate on that statement: How are you working with the police to counter illicit trafficking and the spread of transnational criminal organizations? What are the armed forces doing to deal with these concerns? Major General Antony Anderson: By Dialogo March 14, 2011 The Jamaica Defence Force has improved in its capabilities over the years as a small but very professional military in the region. The military serves as a model somewhat to others in the caribbean to emulate in its roles. Continue to make jamaica and the region proud! I hope someday to be apart of this truly remarkable force. excellent Well other than the typo in the sentence (“These roles are from our national security strategy, which is an all of government document.”) where the word “AN” should be ON…., it was a very good advisory on current issues and future expectations… well said by Major General Antony Anderson Major General Antony Anderson:center_img What are the main security concerns for Jamaica at present? Major General Antony Anderson: How do you see Jamaica’s future? What we have been contributing to the region for a very long time. We offer training to the region in a number of ways, from junior staff training for mid level officers, to intelligence training, aviation training, and also support in a number of ways to the other countries in the region. We’ve done this for a while and we’ll continue to do this for a while. And also, we perhaps have a bit more experience at doing joint operations with police than most people. A lot of the countries have been coming to this in the past 3-5 years; but we’ve been doing this for 35 years. It’s important that we share our experience so that they don’t have to go the long route, they don’t have the time for that. They have to be effective now and their situation is evolving quickly. That is demanding more attention from the military from what was essentially and traditionally a law enforcement matter. I would like to believe we have turned the corner. It was not just a matter of police confidence, it was a matter of public confidence, of the society really wanting and recognizing that change is required. Your law enforcement and security forces cannot really deal with that matter without the support of society and I think there are voices in society that are now pushing for it to continue. I think the police have a renewed energy. Their leadership is first class as far as I’m concerned and they’re doing all the right things. It will take a little while for it to catch on throughout the entire force, but you can see a new energy and how things are being tackled, and if that can be maintained, then I think we can turn the corner on it. Of course, on the other side of things, there’s a part of the social environment that is not within our ambient, such as the accessibility to jobs and those other entirely social issues that have to be addressed as well in order to deal with the problem. There are a couple of things for people involved in combating transnational crimes that require you to have a robust structure and legislation to prevent things like corruption or to set up mechanisms that can allow people to say what they know and be protected and secure. Will all your problems go away? Certainly not, because they evolve and things change. As a region, there are large disparities and capacities to deal with those problems, but in Jamaica, we’ve always held our hand out. Even when our own problems are overwhelming, we’ve always extended a hand to assist in the Caribbean. Haiti was an example that we were there within 48 hours of the earthquake occurring. Not only to deal with search and rescue issues, but also to send in orthopedic surgeons. For a small country like ours, we managed to affect fifty thousand families and move a million pounds of supplies to support them, so we have a history of supporting the region. DIÁLOGO: What can be done to avoid the emergence of new gang leaders? DIÁLOGO: It must contribute because of the way it is working; it’s a multilateral security initiative. In terms of U.S. engagement, doing it multilaterally is relatively recent. Traditionally we have a number of bi-lats with countries or specific groups, but CBSI seeks to broaden that to a wider group. Like anything in its early stages, it will go through teething problems, but there is significant multilateral activity within CARICOM already. There are proper structures that exist for security and arrangements, treaties, and legislation to support those treaties and structures, means of intelligence sharing mechanisms for advance passenger and cargo systems, standing committees of heads of security agencies. So there’s structure there. I think that CBSI, having now decided that the Secretariat will reside with the CARICOM agency, can obtain synergy from that which can add additional value to existing structures, as opposed to running parallel structures, so I think it will assist our process along. DIÁLOGO: What does Jamaica bring to the table? These threats are called transnational in nature and therefore the response needs to be a transnational one to fully deal with the situation. A lot of the successes in dealing with transnational and organized crime are transnational investigations and transnational organized approaches. If you trace those successes, you will see those partnerships that led to the success. What I think we need to do is establish this as a normal way of operating, where you can share information and support each other’s operations, because I don’t think there is any one of the countries that we speak of that wishes to have an organized crime problem. It’s really a matter of strengthening those structures between nations so that the extent of the organized transnational crime problem is visible. DIÁLOGO: DIÁLOGO: Major General Antony Anderson: Major General Antony Anderson: I think that it is well within our capacity as a country to win the fight against illicit trafficking. If we can just galvanize the will from all of the pieces that are required to win the fight and get it done. The capacity is there whether the intent can be wielded to reach that end. I think it can be, but like anything else, circumstances are what drive you to do things. We’ll see how it evolves. At the moment it’s trending in the right direction. We are going to continue to push in that direction. It’s recognized what is needed to be done from the socio-economic perspective and that area is receiving attention. It depends on how well we coordinate all that attention and how we maintain the will both socially as a country and politically through leadership. DIÁLOGO: We have to continue our process of crime reduction. We also have to ensure we secure our maritime space and we have to ensure we have an appropriate range of capabilities to respond to a wide range of contingencies. Anything from the sort of security concerns that arise from a natural disaster to those concerns that rise out of a pandemic, to the concerns of crime and public safety. Unfortunately you don’t choose what happens to you, you can only choose how prepared you are to deal with it. Major General Antony Anderson:last_img read more

Giving ‘Maximum Pressure’ a New Meaning

first_imgBy Marcos Ommati / Diálogo April 28, 2020 The Venezuelan regime has proven resilient over the years, but it may be nearing its final hours, says the National Review Institute, in an article posted on its website on April 4. The article referred to U.S. President Donald Trump’s directive to deploy additional ships, aircraft, and security forces in the eastern Pacific Ocean and in the Caribbean Sea under the authorities granted to U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM).According to a White House briefing on April 1, SOUTHCOM, in cooperation with 22 partner nations, will significantly increase ongoing surveillance, disruption, and seizures of drug shipments and provide additional support for eradication efforts. The enhanced deployment includes additional Navy destroyers, combat ships, aircraft, and helicopters; Coast Guard cutters; and Air Force surveillance aircraft, doubling U.S. capabilities in the region. “We came upon some intelligence some time ago that the drug cartels, as a result of COVID-19, were going to try to take advantage of the situation and infiltrate our country with additional drugs,” said U.S. Army General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, during the briefing.Expanded sanctions against VenezuelaJust over a year ago, the U.S. enacted a policy of putting “maximum pressure” on the Nicolás Maduro regime. As part of this policy, the Treasury Department expanded sanctions against Venezuela, specifically targeting oil exports and high-ranking regime officials. U.S. policymakers intended to weaken Maduro’s standing within the country and cause defections in the government and military. However, in recent years, the regime has carefully cultivated loyalty within the armed services by handing over key sectors of the economy to military leaders and embedding Cuban security personnel to stamp out dissent, according to the same article by the National Review Institute.“When we started the maximum pressure policy in January, the president analyzed what our military assets were in the Western Hemisphere because obviously, all the options were and are on the table,” a senior administration official told the Miami Herald. “There was no balance; most of our assets were in the Middle East, Asia, etc., so he asked to recalibrate those assets to have necessary presence in the hemisphere and see where this situation was going, regarding Venezuela,” the official added.More resources for counternarcoticsU.S. Navy Admiral Craig S. Faller, SOUTHCOM commander, has been advocating for more resources for counternarcotics operations in Central, South America and the Caribbean. In a congressional hearing in March, he announced that U.S. military presence would increase in the region in terms of ships, aircraft, and security forces to “reassure partners” in combating “illicit narco-terrorism.”Last year alone, SOUTHCOM’s operations resulted in the seizure of over 280 tons of drugs, much of which was designated for shipment to America, said U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper during the White House briefing. “While this was an incredible achievement, there’s much more work to be done. Transnational criminal organizations continue to threaten our security by smuggling cocaine, fentanyl, methamphetamine, and other narcotics across our borders. These drug traffickers put our communities at risk and destroy lives. Every year, tens of thousands of Americans die from drug overdoses and thousands more suffer the harmful effects of addiction,” the secretary added.“As we know, annually, 70,000 Americans die on average due to drugs. That’s unacceptable. We’re at war with COVID-19, we’re at war with terrorists, and we are at war with the drug cartels as well,” concluded Gen. Milley.last_img read more

Hong Kong leader vows education overhaul after protests

first_imgTopics : Protests rekindle Hong Kong was convulsed by seven straight months of often-violent youth-led pro-democracy protests last year, with millions hitting the streets.More than 8,000 people have been arrested — around 17 percent of them secondary school students.The mass arrests and the coronavirus pandemic ushered in a period of enforced calm.But with the finance hub successfully tackling its COVID-19 outbreak — and social distancing measures easing — small protests have bubbled up.On Sunday, riot police chased flash-mob protesters through multiple shopping malls.They later used pepper spray and batons against protesters, bystanders and journalists in the district of Mong Kok.Police said 230 people were arrested throughout the day, aged between 12 and 65.”Police condemn protestors for disregarding the Government’s disease prevention and control measures, and participating in or organizing prohibited group gatherings,” the force said in a statement on Monday.Lam has resisted calls for universal suffrage or an independent inquiry into the police’s handling of the protests.In the New Year, she vowed to heal the divisions coursing through Hong Kong, but her administration has offered little in the way of reconciliation or a political solution.Arrests and prosecutions have continued apace, while Beijing’s offices in the city sparked a constitutional row last month by announcing a greater say in how Hong Kong is run. Hong Kong’s pro-Beijing leader on Monday vowed to overhaul the city’s education system, arguing its liberal studies curriculum helped fuel last year’s violent pro-democracy protests.Chief Executive Carrie Lam described the current secondary school program as a “chicken coop without a roof” and said her government would soon unveil their plans.”In terms of handling the subject of liberal studies in the future, we will definitely make things clear to the public within this year,” she told the pro-government Ta Kung Pao newspaper in an interview published Monday. Hong Kong has some of Asia’s best schools and universities with academic freedoms unseen in mainland China.Liberal studies was introduced in 2009 as a way to foster critical thinking with schools allowed to choose how they teach it.But it has become a bete noire for Chinese state media and pro-Beijing politicians who have called for more patriotic education.In Monday’s interview, Lam said she felt the classes allowed teachers to push their political biases and that greater oversight by the government was now needed. Her comments are likely to inflame those Hong Kongers who fear Beijing is chipping away at the freedoms that make the city a major international draw as political tensions rise once more.With the backing of Beijing, Hong Kong’s government is pushing ahead with a bill that outlaws insulting China’s national anthem and leading pro-establishment figures are lobbying for an anti-sedition law.The government says new legislation is needed to curb snowballing support — especially among younger Hong Kongers — for democracy and greater autonomy from China.Opponents say the laws will cut back on free speech and do little to heal the city’s festering divides.last_img read more

Pellegrini in relaxed mood

first_img There was widespread dismay at Mancini’s removal just a year after winning the Premier League but Pellegrini’s calmness, composure and confidence has done much to win people over. With nearly £90million spent on new players Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic, there is also a freshness about the squad. Captain Vincent Kompany has noticed the difference. The Belgium international told BT Sport: “I think I look at our squad and I am really pleased with the kind of players we have got in. They are not just great players but great characters. “Already they have done some unbelievable stuff in pre-season, not just in the games but in training as well. “The character just fits perfectly. In any team I want to compete on every level, which means you need players who are just positive and always ready to keep going.” Kompany is also enjoying working under Pellegrini, who guided Villarreal and Malaga to the latter stages of the Champions League and has a strong reputation for man-management. When asked for his thoughts on the new manager, the 27-year-old said: “A lot of class, a man with a very soft touch in the sense that he kind of knows what to say at the right time. “His training sessions have been brilliant so far.” Pellegrini is expected to reshape the City side and urge them to play in a more fluid style. The team are thought likely to play in a basic 4-3-3 formation but Pellegrini claims that is far too simplistic a description. He said: “I am very flexible. I don’t have to play every week exactly the same. “We will see for a lot of reasons which is the best one. I am not afraid of playing different ways because the team is prepared to.” Manuel Pellegrini is ready to hit the ground the running as his Manchester City career begins in earnest this week. The 59-year-old has a daunting challenge ahead of him having been told the club not only want to win the biggest prizes, but want to do so in style and with a harmonious dressing room. He also has a host of other responsibilities relating to City’s much-noted “holistic approach” to all footballing matters but none of this fazes him. The former Villarreal, Real Madrid and Malaga boss said: “It is my first time here in England and it is a different league. “(Whether it is) more difficult or less difficult we will see during the year, but for me (it is) exactly the same. “I worked for nine years in Europe and I saw a lot of matches in the Premier League every weekend. “I played in the Champions League against English Premier League teams so I know a lot about this. “And living here now, of course, I see more.” The mood at the club has been transformed since the turbulent final weeks of the last campaign when, with the title already surrendered, City lost the FA Cup final and Mancini was sacked. The Chilean has slipped effortlessly into the managerial hotseat vacated at the Etihad Stadium by Roberto Mancini at the end of last season. Pellegrini already claims to feel at home and is comfortable with his squad as he prepares to launch their Barclays Premier League campaign at home to Newcastle on Monday.

Syracuse allows season-high 88 points in loss to Duke

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 23, 2020 at 11:56 pm Contact Danny: | @DannyEmerman It took Haley Gorecki and Duke almost the entire shot clock to find an opening in Syracuse’s 2-3 zone. Defenders cut off driving lanes and took away 3-point looks. Still, a minute into the fourth quarter, Gorecki drove into the lane past Kiara Lewis and kicked a pass out to Leaonna Odom in the short corner for a mid-range jumper as the shot clock horn buzzed. Even when Syracuse played sound defense on Thursday night — which was rare — it couldn’t stop Duke’s inside-out offense. That 30-second possession gave Duke a 25-point lead and took 12 seconds longer than the amount of time SU held a lead (18) in the Carrier Dome. In total, Duke scored 46 points in the paint and shot 8-for-15 from behind the arc. For the second consecutive home game, Syracuse (9-9, 3-4 Atlantic Coast) showed why it allows the second-most points per game (68.6) in the ACC during a 88-58 loss to Duke (10-9, 4-4), the most points the Orange have surrendered in regulation this season.“We gotta decide what we want to be, what we want to be known as, what we want to do,” Gabrielle Cooper said. “We can’t just come out and expect things to happen … You don’t just come out and get stops. We play in the ACC, the best conference in the country. Teams are not just going to throw the ball away. Teams are not just going to miss shots.” After the loss, Cooper pointed to three equally important defensive missteps that have plagued Syracuse this year: Finishing possessions with defensive rebounds, running back in transition, and “guarding the ball.” Against Duke, Syracuse was out-rebounded 47 to 33, surrendered 19 fast break points, and allowed the Blue Devils to shoot 49.3%, with most of their shots coming in the paint. The defensive performance led SU head coach Quentin Hillsman to question his team’s effort and consistency for the second-straight home game, saying they need to “make some decisions.” In previous games, like against Georgia Tech and Oregon, Syracuse allowed opponents to explode for 30-plus points in a quarter. But on Thursday night, the Duke scoring stream maintained a steady flow: Twenty-one points in the first, 28 in the second, 22 in the third and 17 in the fourth.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEven one minute into Thursday’s game, Hillsman knew his defense was in trouble. After allowing Duke’s leading scorer, Gorecki, an open look from 3 — which she missed — Hillsman called a timeout to regroup. Gorecki (19 points, five rebounds, nine assists) would be the least of the Orange’s problems, though, as Mikayla Boykin came off the bench and nailed five first-half 3s. Unlike Gorecki, Boykin wasn’t part of SU’s game plan. A “non-closeout,” Cooper said. But Boykin hit her first two from the corner, then walked into lightly contested 3s as Syracuse defenders hesitated to adjust the coverage. Making decisions like that in real-time is something Syracuse needs to improve on, Maeva Djaldi-Tabdi said.“We’re not guarding the ball, we’re not boxing out, they’re getting second-chance points, they were getting way too many fast break points,” Cooper said. “So, they were just picking us apart in those ways. They were just running on us and we weren’t getting back.”One soft spot in SU’s zone appeared to be the short-corner, on the baseline between the block and the corner. Odom (23 points, 10 rebounds) routinely caught entry passes there, took two dribbles into the paint and finished at the rim. Six of Odom’s 10 boards came on the offensive glass, exacerbating the rebounding disparity. “We’re not rebounding well,” Hillsman said. “Even possessions where we’re getting stops, they’re getting the ball back.” SU couldn’t contain Odom in the half-court, and its press didn’t make the defense’s job easier. With the Orange shooting 32.3% from the field, they rarely had the chance to properly set up their full-court press. Even when they did, Duke routinely beat it by flashing a player to the middle or throwing a pass over the top. Even when Duke scored leak-out layups after nearly every made Syracuse basket, the Orange stayed in the press. Hillsman reiterated postgame that the full-court press is part of SU’s identity he believes it needs to win long-term. But on Thursday, a 21-point halftime deficit eventually grew to 30, and the Blue Devils continued to score with ease. “Forty-six points in the paint is ridiculous,” Cooper said. “Absolutely ridiculous. We can’t win that way.” Commentslast_img read more

Harper would be dumb not to go to space at a cost like that.He has $330 million; $55 million is nothing to him. If he wanted to go all out, he could waste his entire contract and spend, like, two months up there. I don’t know what he’d do all alone in the galaxy, though. Maybe he can go find that baseball he hit into the solar system.Axiom plans on sending people to space starting in 2020, so Harper has a full year to start saving his cash.Bryce Harper should fix the Fyre FestivalWe have two documentaries explaining how much of a desire Fyre Festival was. Did you watch the Netflix one? A man had to ███████████ (we had censor this because Sporting News is a family website). There wouldn’t have to be such drastic measures if Bryce were in charge.Founder Billy McFarland was ordered to forfeit $26 million following his six-year prison sentence, and Harper has more than enough to cover that. Cardi B revealed she was paid $70,000 for each of her two performances at Coachella, which seems like a steal of a price. Bryce could easily make her a headliner for Fyre.The promo for Fyre Festival looked amazing, and Harper needs to be the one who makes it a reality.MORE: Bryce Harper and the biggest contracts in sports historyBryce Harper should buy an islandFor starters, the island could be used for Fyre Festival Part II.There are several price ranges for buying ones own island, but since the Phillies are giving Harper so much cash he can get the upper echelon of islands. Take a look at all of the amazing islands available to buy on Private Islands Online. Some cost so much money, they don’t even tell you how much they are.But on the ones that do, the most expensive one I found costs $160 million at 110 acres. This will probably eat up too much of Harper’s overall contract, so let’s lower the price a bit. His best value is the Nengo Nengo atoll, which only costs $55.7 million. This one is 2,223 acres, which is perfect if he wants to host a music festival there. Plenty of space. Bryce Harper has finally made up his mind on his baseball future, and he reportedly settled on a 13-year deal with the Phillies worth $330 million.A few takeaways: Bryce Harper should buy expensive foodsThere’s no single food item that’s going to break the bank for Harper, but we’ll list a few ridiculously priced items below.$2,000 pizza from Industry Kitchen: It has 24K gold leaves for some reasonBillion Dollar Popcorn from Berco’s: Costs $5 a kernel, also has gold in it$777 burger from Caesars’ Burger Brasserie: Made with Kobe beef and Maine lobsterBlack Diamond ice cream from Scoopi: Why do people like eating gold?$5,000 burger from Fluer’s: How does it cost that much?$25,000 taco from Grand Velas Los Cabos: Again, gold is involvedBryce Harper should go HollywoodThe budget for “Avengers: Infinity War” was reportedly between $316-$400 million, so hopefully Bryce saved up from his previous contracts because he might need some extra cash. The good news is the movie made $2.048 billion at the box office, so there’s good potential for return on investment.This is obviously the best way for Harper to invest his money.last_img read more

Toronto Maple Leafs make high-stakes bet swapping Mike Babcock for Sheldon Keefe

first_imgWhen Brendan Shanahan took the podium on Thursday morning alongside general manager Kyle Dubas, the Toronto Maple Leafs president went out of his way to underline the fact that he and Dubas are completely unified when it comes to how they view a team should be built.“I want to make it really clear that we’re aligned and that this is how I see a team should be built as well,” Shanahan said. Really, what else was he to say at this point?The way in which the Maple Leafs have been assembled — prioritizing speed and skill above all else — is as much Shanahan’s vision as it is Dubas. Shanahan has ultimately placed his bet for the future of Toronto on a coach assuming the job with no NHL experience and a general manager, who assumed the job with no NHL experience over a Stanley Cup-winning future Hall of Fame coach in Mike Babcock (who recently became only the eighth coach to reach the 700 win plateau) and Stanley Cup-winning, Hockey Hall of Fame member, Lou Lamoriello as GM.MORE: Babcock statement | Who is Sheldon Keefe? This is not to say it won’t work, but it’s an aggressive bet.What we are watching now, and have been watching since Dubas took over as general manager from Lamoriello in May of 2018 is one grand science experiment playing out in real-time. The Maple Leafs are built on the theory, albeit an untested one, that they are designed to compete in a style that the game is trending to.Will it work more effectively now that Keefe, a coach who has had a long relationship with Dubas dating back to their days running the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League and the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League, is at the helm in place of Babcock? We don’t know yet, but we will soon start to find out.Kyle Dubas meets with media in Arizona to address the firing of head coach Mike Babcock— Hockey Night in Canada (@hockeynight) November 21, 2019So far, the returns have not been pretty.Shanahan also addressed the constant clamouring for an injection of toughness and grit to the roster.“I think sometimes people want to simplistically put us in one box as ‘speed and skill’ and ‘toughness and grit’ in an entirely different box. We want to also be tough and gritty,” Shanahan said. “Our interpretation of toughness and grittiness might be different than someone who played in the ’70s and ’80s or coached then.”The confusing part is that nobody is asking for a roster built like the Broad Street Bullies of the 1970s. He more clearly defined how he and Dubas view “toughness and grit.”“How we define that to our players is winning battles and being mentally tough, making a mistake and not become weak or small because of it,” Shanahan said. “We’re aligned on how we want to build this team.”MORE: Twitter reacts to Babcock firing | What’s next for Babcock?But that is the very type of “toughness and grit” the team, as currently constructed, has shown an inability or unwillingness to execute. Can Keefe glean this out of the current roster better than Babcock could or is the personnel just not capable, or willing, to play that way? Again, we’ll soon find out.Keefe has 59 games to turn around an underperforming roster and get them into the Stanley Cup playoffs. Missing the postseason would be an unmitigated disaster for a team that entered the season with Cup aspirations. There will be no feeling-out process for the new coach; it’s all heavy pressure for Keefe. Babcock took a lot of heat and a lot of criticism. With him gone, further underperformance will lead to heat on Dubas and Shanahan himself, though the president does not see it that way.Tavares on Keefe’s message, or part of it: “He talked a lot about just playing free and feeling good about ourselves and our game. For tonight, understand a couple of areas we want to make changes in, and at the same time, just go out there and play and compete.” #Leafs— Terry Koshan (@koshtorontosun) November 21, 2019“I don’t see this decision by Kyle and the team as a situation where traditionalists might say, ‘well you’ve spent your bullet.’ That’s not how I view it and I can tell you that’s not how our ownership views it,” Shanahan said. “We’re in this together; we’re making moves and evolving as we see we have to do. You don’t set out with an idea, our plan and not evolve or make shifts throughout that plan.”Talk to us a year from now if this season goes down the tubes and next season has a similarly poor start. It would be shocking if the Maple Leafs ownership group, at that point, is extending the same level of leniency as Shanahan is suggesting they do today.Dubas committed to John Tavares, Auston Matthews, Mitchell Marner and William Nylander, tying up essentially half the salary cap in four forwards. It has left the Maple Leafs with their hands tied in a number of areas: addressing issues on defense, finding an adequate backup goaltender and filling out the bottom of their roster — all areas where proficiency is vital if a team is going to contend for a Stanley Cup.Was Babcock’s firing the right decision? Time will tell. Was he free from blame? No.But should he shoulder all the blame? Far from it.With Keefe in place, the Maple Leafs will now ultimately be judged on the bet Dubas and Shanahan have placed. The clock is now ticking.last_img read more

Fantasy Baseball OF Sleepers: Breakout, undervalued outfielders to add to 2020 draft cheat sheets

first_imgDOMINATE YOUR DRAFT: Ultimate 2020 Fantasy Baseball Cheat SheetFantasy Baseball OF SleepersOscar Mercado, Indians. Mercado gave fantasy owners a glimpse of his upside last year, hitting 15 homers and stealing 15 bases in 115 games, and many are expecting him to only get better this year. There are some minor red flags in his hitting profile, as he didn’t take many walks last year and his power is somewhat limited, but he should steal a bunch of bases, which will always be sought after by fantasy owners. Mercado isn’t exactly being “undervalued” in drafts, but if he can continue to develop his power and raise his BB-rate to what he did at Triple-A (29 walks in 259 PAs), he could outperform even the most optimistic expectations. 2020 Fantasy Baseball Rankings:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfield | Starter | Reliever | Top 300Kyle Tucker, Astros. Tucker hit 34 HRs and stole 30 bases in 125 games at Triple-A last year and added another four homers and five steals in 22 major league games. He’s proven just about everything he can in the minors, and all he needs is an everyday job to break out in the majors. Heading into the season, he’s slated to share the right field job with Josh Reddick, but Tucker could eventually take over with a hot start. He’ll also be first in line for at-bats if injuries strike someone like Yuli Gurriel, Yordan Alvarez, or Michael Brantley. One way or another, there’s a good chance Tucker sees significant playing time this year, and if he does, he’ll outproduce his average draft position. 2020 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Starter | Each teamAristides Aquino, Reds. Aquino was a sensation last year after getting called up, hitting 19 HRs in just 56 games. Normally, this type of player would be overvalued the following season, but Aquino is seemingly on the outside looking in for an everyday job after Cincinnati signed Nicholas Castellanos and Mike Moustakas in the offseason. Now, with the addition of the DH for NL teams, we have faith Aquino can ascend quickly from the “auxiliary squad” and find near-everyday at-bats once the season begins. Aquino has too much upside to keep on the bench, so he’s well worth drafting and stashing, especially in daily transaction leagues. 2020 Fantasy Baseball Tiers, Draft Strategy:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfield | Starter | RelieverLourdes Gurriel Jr., Blue Jays (also eligible at 2B and expected to play some 1B this year). Gurriel made our sleeper list last year, and he came through when on the field, clubbing 20 HRs in just 84 games. He even stole six bases, showcasing some upside there. The Blue Jays have a lot of OF/1B/DH candidates, so Gurriel can’t afford a slow start, but he’ll hit homers and drive in runs as long as he’s on the field. A solid average and handful of steals makes him a valuable contributor given his mid-round ADP. Ian Happ, Cubs (2B, 3B). Happ spent more of last season at Triple-A (99 games) than in the majors (56 games), but he produced at both levels, totaling 27 HRs and 11 SBs. He’s unlikely to ever hit for a good average, but he can quietly give you solid numbers in all of the other categories. Playing time is the biggest worry, but he’s slated to start the season in center field and can fill in at 2B and 3B (and DH) if needed. One way or another, the 25-year-old switch-hitter should be in the lineup most days, and if he is, he’ll provide a lot of value given his low cost. Fantasy Baseball Draft Strategies: Auction | Keeper/Dynasty | PointsAvisail Garcia, Brewers. Garcia was one of our favorite breakout picks last year, and he made some strides (20 HRs, 10 SBs in 125 games) but didn’t quite produce as we expected. Now in an even better hitters park in Milwaukee, he could break all the way out with regular at-bats. That’s not guaranteed, as he’ll be competing for playing time with Ryan Braun and Justin Smoak, but he has the highest upside of three if he plays every day. The universal DH rule should only help him find at-bats.Trent Grisham, Padres. Grisham popped 32 homers and stole 13 bases across Double-A, Triple-A and the majors last year in Milwaukee’s organization. Now with a clear path to playing time in San Diego, he should open the season with an everyday job. Grisham has always been a high-OBP guy in the minors (.376) thanks to a high walk rate, and his strikeout rate is relatively low. Last season was really the first time he hit for power, so it’s unclear if that will carry over to a worse hitting environment, but Grisham has a lot of upside in San Diego’s solid lineup, especially in OBP leagues. Jo Adell, Angels. Adell doesn’t have a clear path to playing time heading into 2020, but the 20-year-old slugger has already ascended to Triple-A and figures to be in the majors at some point early this season. His career .298/.361/.518 line in the minors is even more impressive than it looks when you factor in his age, and he has a little bit of a speed with 30 career steals. Brian Goodwin isn’t the long-term answer in right field for the Angels, so Adell is worth drafting. More 2020 Fantasy Baseball: Auction Values | Mock Draft SimulatorAustin Hays, Orioles. Hays played across five levels last season, finishing in the majors where he hit .309/.373/.574 with four homers and two steals in 21 games. The 24-year-old outfielder saw his prospect shine dim after an injury-plagued 2018 (ankle) and start of ’19 (thumb), but now healthy, he could return to the form that saw him skyrocket to the majors in ’17. He’s unlikely to post a batting line as good as last season over a full campaign, but given his home park, it wouldn’t be a shock to see him pop a decent amount of homers and steal some bases. The upside is there for more. Teoscar Hernandez, Blue Jays. Hernandez broke out in the second half last season, clubbing 18 HRs over 60 games and finishing with 26 for the season (122 games). There are some playing time concerns heading into this year, but assuming he gets everyday at-bats, the 27-year-old righty will be a cheap source of power who can also swipe a few bases. His average figures to hurt more than help, but he still has plenty of offensive upside. Alex Verdugo, Red Sox. Verdugo dealt with a stress facture in his back all offseason, but he’s reportedly “100 percent.” If Verdugo is healthy, he’s an interesting fantasy prospect given his batting line with the Dodgers last year (.294/.342/.475). He’s a low-strikeout hitter with developing power, and we know there will be a lot of run-scoring and run-producing opportunities in Boston’s offense. Tyler O’Neill, Cardinals. O’Neill is a proven slugger at the minor league level (140 HRs over 566 games), and he’s popped 14 HRs in two 60-game stints in the majors the past two seasons. The 24-year-old righty is in position to have an everyday job as the Cardinals’ left fielder to open the year, and if he does, he has major power and run-producing upside. Anthony Santander, Orioles. Santander seemingly came out of nowhere last year to hit 20 HRs in just 93 games. The 25-year-old switch-hitter will have to contend with similarly skilled players, such as Dwight Smith Jr. and Cedric Mullins, for playing time, but obviously if he’s in the lineup, he can hit homers, and that should continue as long as he’s playing in Baltimore.  Jake Fraley, Mariners. With Mitch Haniger (back) on the shelf for the foreseeable future, Fraley has a chance to play every day in Seattle’s outfield. The 24-year-old lefty is a career .286/.362/.480 hitter in the minors, and he clubbed 19 HRs and stole 22 bases in 99 games across two levels last season. He likely won’t post huge numbers this season, but anyone who can steal some bases and provide some pop is worth a look in fantasy leagues. Dominic Smith, Mets (1B). Smith just needs everyday at-bats to produce. The 24-year-old lefty hit .282/.355/.525 with 11 HRs in 89 games last year, and there’s little doubt his power is for real. However, with Pete Alonso locking down 1B and J.D. Davis, Brandon Nimmo, and Michael Conforto set in the OF, Smith would appear to be a man without a position. And with Yoenis Cespedes looking healthy in summer camp, even DH at-bats could be tough to come by early on. Even with that said, Smith will be very valuable as soon as there’s an injury (or he’s traded). Perhaps most noteworthy about Smith is that he actually hit lefties (.303/.361/.515) better than righties (.278/.354/.528) last year, so he doesn’t necessarily need to be a platoon player. It’s tough to invest a draft pick in someone like Smith, but he’s worth a pickup if he starts getting consistent playing time. Other OF-eligible sleepers we’ve highlighted elsewhere: Scott Kingery (2B), Tommy Edman (3B), Brandon Lowe (2B), Yoshi Tsutsugo (3B), Austin Riley (3B), Jake Bauers (1B), Jay Bruce (1B) Whether you play in a three-OF or five-OF fantasy baseball league, you’re going to need a handy list of outfield sleepers for your draft cheat sheet. Every year there are surprise OF breakouts, which is good because you every year you probably have at least one surprise bust on your team. You can find undervalued outfielders at any point during your draft, but finding the ones with the most upside is a little more difficult, especially when you factor in category needs.We’ve put together a list of OF sleepers that runs the spectrum of known quantities who could outproduce their average draft positions to under-the-radar guys who will likely need an injury to earn an everyday role. Depending on how deep your league is, you will want to familiarize yourself with the players below. Even if they go undrafted, they’re worth watching early in the season or when they’re called up. last_img read more

Rag-tag Leicester turn tables on English elite

first_img“The most important thing, and what he deserves the most credit for, is he hasn’t come in and tried to change everything,” said Schmeichel during the season.With new signings Huth, Christian Fuchs, Shinji Okazaki and French midfield monster N’Golo Kante carefully added to the blend, Ranieri ditched the back three used by Pearson for a 4-4-2 system.His underdog playing strategy — structured defence allied with rapid counter-attacks — would prove devastatingly effective.Leicester were top following a 4-2 defeat of Sunderland on the season’s first day and returned to the summit in November after Vardy’s record-breaking run of scoring in 11 successive games.There was only one real wobble — a run of one win in five matches immediately after Christmas — and to date they have been beaten just three times.Even when, no longer misdiagnosed as over-achieving minnows, Leicester found opposing teams massing themselves behind the ball, they ground out five 1-0 wins in six games to move to within sight of the title.Leicester’s triumph also owes a debt to the perfect storm that saw defending champions Chelsea collapse, Manchester United toil and Manchester City and Arsenal fail to last the course. MisdiagnosedLeicester escaped relegation last season by winning seven of their last nine games, so there was dismay when manager Nigel Pearson was sacked after his son, a Leicester youth player, was involved in a racist sex tape during a post-season tour of Thailand, home of club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.But Ranieri, the former Chelsea manager, was canny enough to see that there was momentum to be harnessed and had the good sense to retain key members of Pearson’s staff, such as well-regarded head of recruitment Steve Walsh. Coach Ranieri made history with LeicesterLondon, United Kingdom | AFP |Leicester City’s against-the-odds Premier League title success is a story of belief, dogged graft and inspirational leadership prevailing against the money-inflated complacency of England’s leading clubs.Exploiting the frailties of the presumed title favourites, the 5,000-1 outsiders surged to the summit and then held their nerve over four long, giddy months to complete one of the most improbable upsets in sporting history.In the words of the club’s genial Italian manager Claudio Ranieri, it was a triumph of “players who were considered too small or too slow for other big clubs”.“It gives hope to all the young players out there who have been told they are not good enough,” Ranieri said.Kasper Schmeichel left Manchester City aged 22 and spent five seasons rattling around in the second and third tiers before Leicester enabled him to emulate his father, the Manchester United great Peter, by keeping goal in a title-winning side.Right-back Danny Simpson and central midfielder Danny Drinkwater were released by Manchester United, but both have been Leicester mainstays this season, the latter earning a first England cap in March.German centre-back Robert Huth spent four years as a bit-part player at Chelsea. His centre-back partner Wes Morgan, the captain, did not play top-level football until he was 30.Winger Marc Albrighton was released by his formative club Aston Villa in 2014. His season began amid personal tragedy, after his partner’s mother was killed in the terror attack in Sousse, Tunisia last June.Most famous of all, now, are Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, signed for a combined fee of some £1.4 million ($2 million, 1.8 million euros) and who have become two of the most feared forwards in England.Dazzling Algerian winger Mahrez, told he was “too skinny” by his youth coaches in the Sarcelles district of Paris, recently became the first African to be named England’s Player of the Year.The prolific Vardy, rejected by boyhood club Sheffield Wednesday for being “too small”, is now a Premier League record-breaker and England international whose rags-to-riches tale is reportedly being turned into a Hollywood film.Overseeing it all has been 64-year-old Ranieri, derided as a nearly man by Jose Mourinho and mocked on his return to England last year, but whose lyrical soundbites became the soundtrack to Leicester’s drive to glory.Leicester players have played out of their skinscenter_img But for an unheralded team composed of players with almost zero title-winning know-how, their success in leading from the front represents an astonishing feat of fortitude and sporting courage.The club’s disbelieving supporters will hope that by the time Champions League football arrives at the King Power Stadium for the first time next season, players like Vardy, Mahrez and Kante are still around.But whatever becomes of Ranieri’s ‘Impossibles’ in the months, years and decades ahead, their sporting immortality is assured.CLICK here to read Spurs versus ChelseaShare on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more

Weah Urged Not to Neglect ‘Senior Citizens’

first_imgMembers of the NASCOL who need the support of the Government of Liberia.NASCOL Pleads with government to provide shelter, healthcare, and foodArthur K. Masalley, 71, founder of the National Senior Citizens Organization of Liberia (NASCOL) has urged the government particularly President George Manneh Weah not to neglect Liberia’s senior citizens (old people).He said in an interview yesterday that his organization has carried out an assessment of the plights of ‘old people’ and has realized that their dire conditions need government’s urgent attention.“While we want to commend President Weah and Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor for the mandate given them by the Liberian people, we want to inform them the old people deserve their support,” he said.He said the previous government, through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, provided some assistance until the sector was transferred to the Minister of Gender, Children, & Social Protection.Masalley said while there are three vulnerable groups in the country (children, women, and older citizens), it is regrettable that the older-citizens sector has been replaced with the youth.“This has been done because the youth can cause noise while the older people keep to themselves, unable to make their voices heard,” he said.Mr. Masalley says the government should provide shelter, food and healthcare for old people.The NASCOL founder noted while aging is a natural process for anyone living, the George Weah government should not forget that old people also deserve the government’s support.Masalley regretted that in all communities across the country, some old people are branded as witches and are left to face the harsh realities of life.“When a young woman or man is facing difficulties, they run to a prophet or a medlast_img read more

Trojans fall after strong start

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – Brandan Wright and top-seeded North Carolina almost waited too long to make their move. Down by 16 points early in the second half, the Tar Heels suddenly shifted into another gear and startled Southern California 74-64 Friday night in the East Regional semifinals. Despite off games by Tyler Hansbrough and Ty Lawson, the Tar Heels (31-6) saved themselves and set up a regional final Sunday for college basketball fans to savor: North Carolina vs. Georgetown, a rematch of the 1982 championship game that Michael Jordan won in the closing seconds. Fifth-seeded USC (25-12) was putting on a dunking exhibition and led 49-33 with 17:42 left before it all fell apart. Trojans coach Tim Floyd threw his program onto the court after a call in the final minute, and was whistled for a technical foul. By then, Wright and his teammates had already done plenty to frustrate Floyd’s team and were well on their way to their seventh straight victory. Wright scored two straight baskets on offensive rebounds to get the Tar Heels within 57-49, then the freshman was a key part of a 13-0 run that put them ahead for the first time since the opening minute. “It was a fantastic comeback to say the least,” Tar Heels coach Roy Williams said. “I have a great deal of confidence in my team. … I knew we wouldn’t give up.” North Carolina reached the round of eight for the second time under Williams, who won the 2005 title with the Tar Heels. Earlier at the Meadowlands, Georgetown beat Vanderbilt 66-65 on a last-second shot. Wright finished with 21 points and nine rebounds. He somehow offset Hansbrough’s 1-for-6 shooting for five points and Lawson’s four points. Freshman Taj Gibson had 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Trojans. Nick Young, Gabe Pruitt and Gibson took turns throwing down dunks in the first half as the Trojans more than matched North Carolina’s up-tempo style. Floyd said his team plays with “youthful exuberance” and it showed from the get-go. Pointing their index fingers, slapping hands after big plays and popping the “USC” on their jerseys, they looked like schoolyard kids having fun. Floyd got into the act, too, hollering, “Go get it! Go get it!” during loose balls. Williams could barely watch on the other bench, putting his hands on his head and turning away after an airball. The Trojans scored the last eight points of the first half for a 42-33 lead, then scored the first seven after the break, capped by Lodrick Stewart’s 3. At that point, the Tar Heels trailed by 16 points and were in serious trouble. That is, until they started playing the kind of basketball that has consistently made them among the biggest winners in the sport. The Trojans attacked inside early, taking it right at Hansbrough. The rugged 6-foot-9 sophomore ripped out his mouthpiece at one point, upset that the Trojans were getting the better of him. In the second half, though, the Tar Heels had their way inside. They dominated the second-half as Southern California seemed powerless to stop the surge. The Trojans were trying to reach the round of eight for the first time since 2001. Known primarily as a football school, a win over the Tar Heels would’ve clearly boosted their national profile. “Winning and doing well in this tournament will do that, and that includes beating North Carolina,” Southern California athletic director Mike Garrett, a former Heisman Trophy winner, said right before tip-off. “But it’s more than just beating North Carolina.” It was not to be, despite such a strong start. North Carolina led for a grand total of 17 seconds in the first half. That was at 1-0 on a foul shot by Marcus Ginyard, who started when Reyshawn Terry was slowed by strep throat.last_img read more

AFC Leopards slay Mathare in KPL duel

first_img0Shares0000AFC Leopards fans along Moi Avenue.PHOTO/Raymond Makhaya.MACHAKOS, Kenya, Aug 5 – AFC Leopards climbed third on the Kenyan Premier League table following their 2-1 win over Mathare United on Sunday at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos County.In other results, Sofapaka climbed up to second in the standing after downing Ulinzi Stars 1-0 thanks to a Umaru Kasumba’s goal in the stoppage time. Thika United’s poor form continued as the relegated bound side succumbed to a 3-1 loss at the hands of Sony Sugar, Nzoia Sugar was held to a goalless draw by Wazito FC while Kariobangi Sharks were stunned 2-1 by a 10-man visiting Zoo FC.Ten-man AFC Leopards found their goals from Wyvonne Isuza and Marvin Omondi while defender James Situma scored the consolation for Mathare United in a lively encounter that saw both sides create many chances.AFC Leopards head coach Radolfo ZapataAFC Leopards head coach Rodolfo Zapata heaped praise on his charges, revealing that they had to change their strategy after Isuza was sent off.“My coaching philosophy is attacking and my players just did that today, but I had to change tactics when my player received a red card and my players responded well. I am so proud of my team,” Zapata said after the match.AFC, who were the better side, dominating possession in the better part of the match, were reduced to one man down after Isuza picked a second yellow card on the 62nd minute for retaliation on Mathare’s Ahmad Ahmed.Mathare custodian David Okello was the busiest having to come off his live severally to keep his team on the game.Tusker FC comes off his line to clear danger. Photo/Mathare United FacebookAs early as on the 4th minute, Okello put his body on the line, coming off his line to clear the effort before AFC’s speedy attacker Ezekiel Odera reached on the ball for a fruitless corner.Ingwe’s attacking and quick moves finally paid of on the half hour mark when Isuza stepped up to convert a controversial penalty that saw Okello dive on the right direction to have a touch on the ball but it was too powerful to stop it from entering in.The penalty was awarded after Situma tackled Jaffari Odenyi from behind in what looked from the live broadcast replay as a foul at the edge of the box, but the center referee Yassin Badr pointed at the spot that gifted Isuza his 11th goal of the season.Three minutes later, Mathare squandered a glorious opportunity that could have seen level the scores when Clifford Alwanga failed to get a touch on the ball from a defence splitting pass from Ahmed.Mathare United lost 2-1 to AFC Leopards. Photo/Mathare United FacebookHowever, lapse in concentration from the AFC back-lined cost the team, enabling Situma to make the amends by slamming the ball home on the stroke of half time and see both sides share spoils at the breather.The goals came after Isuza hacked down Alwanga to pick his first yellow card that proved costly to the team. Mathare United captain George ‘Wise’ Owino, coming from injury took the set-piece that found Situma on the right side.Just at they started in the first half, AFC drew the first blood in the last half, forcing Okello to come off his line to rescue Mathare after Isuza’s pass was miscued the Mathare United defence on the 56th minute.But that matted less after Marvin Omondi tapped in an empty net after a fine build up in the midfield where Odenyi exchanged a 1-2 pass with Edward Seda who in turn put Odenyi through, before seeing his effort punched away by Okello but lady luck falled on Omondi was in the perfect position to tap in the second goal.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgThere has been widespread shock expressed this morning, following the news, that the famous ‘Football Special’ drinks are set to be moved from the McDaid Bottling factory in Ramelton to Northern Ireland. McDaid’s ‘Football Specials’ are famous all throughout Ireland, but are a Donegal institution, as it’s produced at its historic home in Ramelton.The two most popular flavours produced by McDaid’s are banana and, the most popular, Football Special, is apparently made with a mix of seven ‘secret’ flavours. It is believed that staff were called to a meeting yesterday, at which it was outlined to them that production would be moved to the Maine group in Ballymoney, Co.Antrim in two months time.They will take over the Football Special and Banana flavoured drinks synonymous with Edward McDaid and his firm.The news has been met, with both shock and sadness by locals in Ramelton, that this historic Donegal brand is set to move its production into Northern Ireland.No doubt, the news will be met by sadness throughout all of the county, as this much loved and famous drink leaves Donegal. It is expected that up to six jobs may be affected by the proposed move.The McDaid family are yet to comment on the developments of the past 24 hours.  SHOCK AS ‘FOOTBALL SPECIAL’ MOVES TO NORTHERN IRELAND was last modified: May 15th, 2014 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:BusinessclosureFootball SpecialHome-page NewsMaine GroupMcDaidNOrthern IrelandRameltonlast_img read more

Buncrana Pier Tragedy: Jury returns verdict of misadventure in all five deaths

first_imgThe jury at the inquest into the deaths of five people in the Buncrana Pier tragedy has found they died as a result of drowning.The jury of five men and four women took more than half an hour to return findings of death by misadventure.The jury also issued one recommendation at the suggestion of a number from coroner Dr Denis McCauley. The jury recommended that Water Safety Ireland take a prominent role in advising and working with all interested parties to introduce best international practice for safety on slipways and piers.The jury foreman added that they hoped this could be introduced as quickly as possible in light of the Buncrana tragedy.Coroner Dr Denis McCauley paid tribute to all involved in the incident including the RNLI, Gardai, Fire Service and all emergency services.He said that all at the inquest and himself as a father cannot even imagine what Louis James and members of the McGrotty family were going through. “Each death will be felt differently but it is still eternally tragic and I’d like to extend my condolences to all families,” he said.Garda Inspector David Murphy said that the impact of the events of March 20th, 2016 has been felt in Derry but also in Buncrana, Donegal, across the country and even further afield.He paid tribute to the members of the emergency services who volunteered alongside their everyday jobs such as delivering oil or making gates.He paid particular tribute to Davitt Walsh who managed to rescue a child from the sinking jeep.He said “His was such a courageous act. He is an ordinary man who did an extraordinary thing which he should be commended for.” Earlier pathologist Dr Katrina Dillon had given her medical evidence and said all five people had died as a result of drowning.* The finding of ‘misadventure’ meant jurors thought risks were associated on the day or were taken which may have increased the risk of the event happening.Buncrana Pier Tragedy: Jury returns verdict of misadventure in all five deaths was last modified: November 24th, 2017 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:buncranaDr Denis McCauleyfindingsinquestjuryrecommendationstargedylast_img read more

Growing debate on alternative protein sources

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Whether it is called fake meat or clean meat, products containing alternative sources of protein have been appearing in supermarkets and restaurants around the country, and are competing with traditionally raised animal agriculture products. Attendees at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 100th Annual Convention engaged with experts on what alternative sources of protein are, who backs them and how to get the message out about the products they produce.Plant-based “meats” (Impossible Foods, Inc. and Beyond Meat) and cell-based meats (Memphis Meats and Mosa Meat) are two types of products that have been receiving national attention over the past few years according to Eric Mittenthal, vice president of public affairs for the North American Meat Institute. Though very different in how they are produced, both groups are targeting the marketing demographic dominated by animal agriculture.“Their audience is not the traditional vegan or vegetarian looking for new products,” Mittenthal said. “They want to compete in the meat case for meat eaters.”Plant-based “meats” use a recipe of plant ingredients to imitate the properties of animal meat, while cell-based meats use cells taken from animals that are then grown in a lab. Though plant-based “meats” are now on store shelves, cell-based meats are still unavailable. Mittenthal said that the first commercially available cell-based meat could be ready as soon as 2019 but is still too expensive to be viable as a replacement for animal agriculture products.The companies that are producing these products are not the only ones promoting them. Hannah Thompson-Weeman, vice president of communications for the Animal Agriculture Alliance, noted that many of the groups pushing for the widespread adoption of these products, such as the Good Food Institute and The Humane Society of The United States, have hostile views on animal agriculture.“These are well-funded groups opposed to animal agriculture,” said Thompson-Weeman. “From their perspective, there is no way we can raise animals for consumption that is ethical and responsible. Their end goal is ending meat consumption.”The panelists agreed that the best way to combat the negative attacks by these groups is to:Avoid disparaging consumer choices;Correct misinformation, but not engage in back-and-forth debates;Focus on interested consumers vs. extremists; andDevote energy to sharing positive information about animal agriculture and meat.“Customers want choice and they need you to respect that they are entitled to choose,” said Leah McGrath, dietitian for BuildUp Dietitians. “Getting caught in the middle of these ideological battles is not helpful; it just creates negativity and suspicion. Take the high road and tell your story about what makes your products great.”last_img read more

Should I Insulate My Cold Water Pipes?

first_imgErik North, the owner of Free Energy Maine, is an energy auditor and home performance specialist in Westbrook, Maine. He is also the author of the Energy Auditing Blog. Cold water pipes absorb heatIf the basement space is insulated, cold water pipes may absorb heat. The basement air temperature would be in the high 50s while the cold water pipes would be 10-12 degrees colder.If the pipes were left uninsulated, this would be a continual, low-level draw of heat from the building. Normally this might be too small to bother, but the cost of insulating pipes is so minimal it becomes worth discussing. Protect pipes from freezing and limit condensationThere are a few good reasons. If the basement or crawl space has uninsulated walls (and really, you should insulate your basement walls), insulated cold water pipes would be less prone to freezing in cold climates.If the basement is conditioned space, an insulated cold water pipe won’t absorb heat. If it is in a 1000% humidity climate like Georgia, cold pipes can be prone to condensation issues. A fully taped and insulated cold water pipe won’t condense moisture on its surface. Insulating the hot waters pipes in your house is something of a no-brainer. Why let the heat escape willy-nilly? Pipe insulation is inexpensive, and the project is one that any homeowner could finish on a Saturday afternoon.Whether to insulate the cold water pipes is less clear-cut. The project is still pretty inexpensive and easy — but does it have a point? Insulation retains heat, and these are cold water pipes. So why do it? Cold water pipes are a condensing surface for moisture in the airLastly, condensation concerns can be alleviated with pipe insulation. (Or rather, the possibility of condensation would be gone — you’re free to remain concerned.)Basements and crawl spaces are embedded in damp soil, surrounding the permeable concrete with moisture. The spaces under houses often have elevated humidity levels and cold water pipes are a natural condensing surface. Stick any paper or valuables or valuable paper (perhaps your original run of Claremont X-Men issues) under a pipe elbow, and you’re in for a nasty surprise down the road.The key for preventing condensation is to be sure that the pipe is insulated and that the insulation is sealed along the seams. Moisture-laden air must be kept from contacting the pipe surface. The pipe insulation should be a vapor-impermeable foam with all the seams and edges taped tight.Insulating hot water pipes in a cold climate is a no-brainer. But there is a lot to be said for insulating cold water pipes as well. Many houses in Maine and similar heating climates have uninsulated copper and PEX pipes running through the basement ceiling joists. With winter temperatures routinely dipping below 0°F, it’s no surprise that cold water pipes can freeze.Insulation is simply a material with above average resistance to thermal energy movement. The water comes out of the ground below 50°F into a winter environment that could be below 0°F. Wrapping those cold water pipes would keep what heat energy the water possessed in place, protecting against freezing.

What’s the Best Basement Flooring System?

first_imgThe problem isn’t moisture migrating through the concreteQuoting literature from the manufacturer’s website, Dieterle says that Delta FL is designed to stop water vapor from seeping up through the concrete.But it’s not that kind of moisture that Holladay and Dorsett are concerned with. Assuming the Delta membrane will prevent the migration of moisture upward through the slab, that still leaves the problem of condensation (or more properly, Holladay says, “adsorption”).“I’m concerned about the relative humidity of the entrained air in the rug underlayment or bottom of rug, which can easily hit levels high enough to support mold growth if you don’t allow the temperature of the underlayment to track the room temperature,” Dorsett says. “I’m sure Delta FL stops the moisture going from slab to rug, but it doesn’t have any means of stopping the moisture from going from the room air to the cold underlayment.”Mold loves relative humidity levels of 65% and greater and temperatures of 60°F and above, he says, and that’s exactly what you’ll get when you put carpet with an R-value of 1 or 2 over Delta FL in much of the northeast U.S.With room air at 72°F and 60% relative humidity, common in summer in the eastern U.S., the dew point would be about 57°F, Dorsett writes. With subsoil temperatures under 55°F, the relative humidity of the air on the underside of the rug could easily be greater than 75%, “and rife with mold growth due to the cooler temperature under the rug.”Headroom is an issue, but with as little as 1/2 inch of poly-faced EPS foam insulation plus plywood would sharply reduce the chance of mold growth. CONSTRUCTION DETAILS RELATED MULTIMEDIA GBA Webinar: Got Mold? Energy Efficiency and Moisture Management No, the two approaches are not the sameYou’re wrong about that, writes Dana Dorsett. The Delta FL systems bears little resemblance to rigid foam insulation and plywood.“Foam and subfloor have a substantial and knowable R-value, whereas Delta FL has no rated R-value,” Dorsett says. “While the material itself isn’t mold-food, almost anything put put on top of it will be — especially the rugs.”The R-value of the Delta FL membrane could be less than R-1, he adds, and while that would be enough to protect bare feet from the cold concrete, it would still create mold conditions on the bottom of the rugs during the summer when the dew points of the room rise.“To use rugs in a basement without sufficient R-value below it to keep the bottom of the rug well above the dew point of the peak summertime outdoor air dew points is to invite a mold disaster,” he says. “The R-value required to get there varies with location, since the outdoor dew points and subsoil temperatures are all local. But any place cold enough to warrant a wood stove in the basement [as Dieterle plans to do] would have subsoil cold enough to need at least R-3 under the rug to be safe anywhere in the ‘A’ zones of the U.S. (climate zones 4A though 7A).“And heating with resistive mats without at least R-5 (R-10+ would be better) would have a disproportionately high operating cost, too,” he adds. Two potential water problems, not just oneThere are two types of potential water problems in a basement, GBA Senior Editor Martin Holladay says. One is the possibility of water leaking in from the outside; the second is that a cool concrete slab can become a condensing surface for moisture, particularly in the summer. The first is apparently not a problem here.“In general,” Holladay adds, “you don’t ever want to install carpeting on a concrete slab unless you are sure that there is a layer of horizontal rigid foam under the slab. (The foam insulation keeps the slab near the interior air temperature, greatly reducing the chance of condensation.) Without the foam insulation layer, you can get moisture build-up and mold under the carpet.”Most older houses don’t have a layer of foam beneath the slab. Assuming that’s the case here, Dieterle could add a layer of foam on top of the concrete, followed by one or two layers of 3/4-inch tongue-and-groove plywood and then the finished flooring.Holladay’s suggestion of foam and plywood seems “almost identical” to the Delta FL system, Dieterle replies, so he’ll just stick with that. And even if the best possible flooring in this situation might be concrete, or tile over concrete, his wife “is not going to budge from wall-wall carpet.” RELATED ARTICLES center_img Building Plans for Energy Efficient Basement Remodeling How to Insulate a Basement WallFixing a Wet BasementGreen Basics: Slab FoundationsGreen Basement Renovation Q&A: Minimalist On Top of Slab Insulation Options Carpet in Basements: The Issues, Solutions, and Alternatives Finishing a Basement FloorThe Stay-Dry, No-Mold Finished Basement With a basement remodel underway, Jeff Dieterle weighs his options for a trouble-free floor. “We want to do the kitchen and bathroom in tile or stone and the rest of the area in wall-to-wall carpet,” he writes in a Q&A post at Green Building Advisor.So far, he’s found two products that would seem to work: Ditra-Heat under the tile or stone sections of flooring, and a product called Delta FL in tandem with tongue-and-groove plywood under carpeted sections.Dieterle has never had a bulk water problem in the basement in the 17 years he’s lived in the house. Even so, he’s not sure that the Delta membrane/plywood combination is a good idea.“Not fond of the T&G plywood in the basement as everything else will be mold-proof,” he writes. “Are there other options beside inorganic individual tiles? Or is the Delta FL system reliable?”That question is the start of this Q&A Spotlight. Our expert’s opinionGBA Technical Director Peter Yost added this:Great points all around; I will just add some food for thought.Bulk water leaks: Most insurance companies will tell you their two single largest claims related to moisture are for ice dams and ruptured clothes washer hoses. If your basement does not leak, that’s great, but make sure that you have control of your clothes washer as a major source of interior water leaks. I recommend that any clothes washer, no matter what floor it is located on, should be controlled by a single-throw combo valve, conveniently located to treat water pressure to your clothes washer like a light switch: on when doing the laundry, otherwise off.Moisture evaporating (unseen) from your basement slab: There are two tests — one qualitative and one quantitative — for determining whether moisture is coming up through any concrete slab.Insulation under the floor: I could not agree more that elevating the basement floor temperature is essential in terms of managing mold, but also dust mites. Be careful when you go looking for EPS. There are many different types, as you can see in this Table of EPS Types and properties. There are other options for rigid insulation but availability and price for materials such as Foamglas and rigid mineral wool are issues.I would lobby hard for rugs rather than carpets in the basement; they are designed for relatively easy cleaning if — or more likely, when — your basement floor gets wet, or even just damp.last_img read more

Another security official held in Tripura journalists’ murder probe

first_imgThe Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday arrested a security official in connection with its probe into the murder of two journalists in separate incidents in 2017. Swarupananda Biswas, Assistant Commandant in the 2nd battalion of paramilitary Tripura State Rifles (TSR), is the second senior officer arrested after former battalion Commandant Tapan Debbarma, for their alleged involvement in the killing of journalist Sudip Datta Bhowmik.Sudip Datta Bhowmik, a reporter with Bengali daily Syandan, was shot dead inside the office of Commandant Tapan Debbarman at R.K. Nagar, near Agartala, when the former went to a paramilitary campus to on a professional assignment. The other journalist Santanu Bhowmik, who was working for a local television channel was lynched to death while covering a road blockade agitation at Mandwai, 25 kms east of Agartala.After it assumed office in March 2018, the BJP-led coalition government in the State handed both the investigations to the CBI. Journalists’ organisations had been continuously holding street protests to press for probe by the central agency.The police and the CBI had made several arrests in connection with the murders but almost all the accused were released on bail. The CBI recently intensified its investigation after Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb spoke to Home Minister Amit Shah.last_img read more

England’s Collingwood retires from Test cricket

first_imgPaul Collingwood had a feeling England would wrap up another thumping Ashes victory over Australia on Thursday, so he thought it was the right time to tell his teammates he was retiring from Test cricket.His timing was almost perfect. England got within three wickets of an innings defeat of Australia on the penultimate day of the fifth Test in Sydney, and will have to return Friday to wrap it up for a 3-1 series win.It will be England’s first Test series victory in Australia since 1987. With all day to get three tail-enders out, the 34-year-old Collingwood doesn’t mind his Test career extending to another day.”In many ways it’s a sad moment but I honestly think it’s the right time,” he said. “This is what I have been playing cricket for – it’s to be in a position against Australia in Australia like this, and it’s going to be the perfect moment to bow out of Test cricket.”Collingwood has scored 4,259 runs in 68 Test matches at an average of 40 since his debut against Sri Lanka in 2003, but has struggled in the current Ashes series and scored only 83 runs. He said it was time for him to move aside for a younger player in the Test arena, although he’ll remain captain of England’s Twenty20 team and will continue to play one-day internationals.”I am happy with the contributions I’ve made to the England team in the Test format and there are a lot of youngsters coming through,” he said. “This team will progress without me and get better and better, so I am looking forward to tomorrow as my final farewell.”advertisementCollingwood has been involved in four Ashes campaigns, and won three of them – he received a civic honor for playing one Test in the 2005 Ashes series when England won the Ashes for the first time since 1987. His most successful Ashes series as an individual was in Australia four years ago, when he scored a career high 206 at Adelaide but England was swept 5-0.England won back the Ashes in 2009 and ensured it retained the old urn by winning the fourth Test at Melbourne last week.”To be involved with a great England team like it is at the moment with some special players and special characters, it’s a very proud place to be,” he said.Wicketkeeper Matt Prior praised Collingwood’s contribution to the team, saying it was as much his behind-the-scenes influence with the team as his solid batting and fielding that has been integral in lifting the self belief and harmony in the England squad.Collingwood, who guided England to the Twenty20 World Cup title last year, said the way the England squad had developed a culture of winning in recent seasons had been the highlight of his time in international cricket.A lack of runs had hastened his decision to quit the longest form of the game.”Obviously my form hasn’t helped. I am very realistic and at the same time there are some great young players coming through, but if I wanted to progress and if I wanted to stay in the England team I was going to have to work very hard on technical things and whether I’ve got the time and the ability to stay up with this team I am not too sure.”England Cricket Board managing director Hugh Morris said Collingwood had been an outstanding contributor for England.”His performances have been admired and recognized by his teammates and England supporters over many years and his tireless commitment in the Test match arena will be something he will always be remembered for,” Morris said.Collingwood was out for 13 in England’s first innings in Sydney and could yet bat again at the SCG, with the last Ashes Test due to finish Friday.Collingwood has scored 10 centuries and also taken 17 wickets in Test cricket, including the vital wicket of Mike Hussey in this match. He has played 189 limited-overs internationals.last_img read more

Tiger Woods makes Masters his 15th and most improbable major

first_imgView comments LATEST STORIES Schauffele failed to birdie the par-5 15th and scrambled for pars the rest of the way for a 68. Dustin Johnson made three straight birdies late in the round, but he got going too late and had to settle for a 68 and a return to No. 1 in the world.Woods goes to No. 6, his first time inside the top 10 since the 2014 PGA Championship.Koepka, one of four players from the final two groups who hit into the water on No. 12, rallied with an eagle on the 13th, narrowly missed another eagle on the 15th and was the last player with a chance. His birdie putt on the 18th from just outside 10 feet missed, and he had to settle for a 70.“You want to play against the best to ever play,” Koepka said. “You want to go toe-to-toe with them. I can leave saying I gave it my all. He’s just good, man.”Woods finished at 13-under 275 and became, at 43, the oldest Masters champion since Nicklaus won his sixth green jacket at 46 in 1986. That has stood as Augusta’s defining moment for years.This one is sure to at least rival it.“This is definitely, probably one of the greatest comebacks I think anybody’s ever seen,” Koepka said.Koepka and Molinari had both faced Tigermania in the majors and held their own, Molinari at Carnoustie to win the British Open, Koepka last summer at Bellerive to win the PGA Championship. Molinari went 49 straight holes without a bogey, a streak that ended on the seventh hole. It was the double bogeys that cost him, and the Italian was gracious as ever in defeat.“I think I made a few new fans today with those double bogeys,” he said.Rain fell briefly, but it stayed away long enough for Woods to be presented his green jacket on the practice green, just like old times. He looked like a new man, making new memories.“Now I’m able to play golf again, and do it at an elite level again, which is something I’m just very blessed to be able to have that opportunity again,” Woods said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Tiger Woods reacts as he wins the Masters golf tournament Sunday, April 14, 2019, in Augusta, Ga.

And the race is on.“A big ‘well done’ from me to Tiger,” Nicklaus tweeted. “I am so happy for him and for the game of golf. This is just fantastic!!!”Woods now is three short of the gold standard — 18 majors — set by Nicklaus.“I think 18 is a whole lot closer than people think,” Brooks Koepka said.Joe LaCava, the caddie who stayed with Woods even when he didn’t play for the better part of two years, said they have talked about the record.“We’re on 14 and I said, ‘Let’s get to 15.’ You can’t be on 14 and thinking about 18,” LaCava said. “But now we can start talking about 16. So we’re getting closer.”It was the first time Woods won a major when trailing going into the final round. Francesco Molinari, the 54-hole leader, was still up two shots heading into the heart of Amen Corner.And that’s when all hell broke loose.Molinari’s tee shot on the par-3 12th never had a chance, hitting the bank and tumbling into Rae’s Creek for double bogey. Until then, Molinari had never trailed in a round that began early in threesomes to finish ahead of storms.And then it seemed as though practically everyone had a chance, until Woods delivered the key shots at the big moment, just like the old days.

I feel like I got full Masters experience.”The comeback goes beyond the two-shot deficit he erased before a delirious audience that watched memories turn into reality.It had been 14 years since he last won the Masters — no one had ever gone that long between green jackets. He had gone nearly 11 years since his last major, the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines on a shattered left leg.This was bigger.ADVERTISEMENT Woods never missed a shot that mattered over the final seven holes, taking the lead with a 5-iron to the fat of the green on the par-5 15th for a two-putt birdie, delivering the knockout with an 8-iron that rode down the ridge by the cup and settled 2 feet away for birdie on the par-3 16th.He tapped in for bogey and a 2-under 70, and the celebration was on.“WOOOOOOO!!!” Woods screamed as he headed for the scoring room with chants of “Tiger! Tiger! Tiger!” He had never hugged more people, everyone in his camp who stood by him through a public divorce, an embarrassing mug shot from his DUI arrest when he took a bad mix of painkillers and the four back surgeries, the most recent to fuse his lower spine“I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple of years ago,” Woods said. “I could barely walk. I couldn’t sit. Couldn’t lay down. I really couldn’t do much of anything. … To have the opportunity to come back like this, it’s probably one of the biggest wins I’ve ever had for sure because of it.”President Donald Trump, who has played with Woods at his Florida course, had two tweets of congratulations. Fenway Park posted the news on the scoreboard.A comeback for the ages?It rates among the best because Woods has meant so much to so many in a sport he ruled for so long. Whether he can dominate it again is still to be determined. Woods needed some help to win this Masters. Six players had a share of the lead at some point on the back nine, and there was a five-way tie at the top when the final group was still on the 15th fairway.“You couldn’t have had more drama than we all had out there. And now I know why I’m balding,” Woods said. “This stuff is hard.”It didn’t look that way when he was younger, healthier and the most popular sporting figure in the world.Woods lost his impeccable image to a sex scandal, one of the swiftest and most shocking downfalls in sports.

FIFA World Cup 2018: 10 Players that are likely to set the tournament alight

first_imgThe Fifa World Cup trophyAdvertisement(photo credits: Getty Images)Every four years, a group of remarkable young footballers and legends aspire to make a name for themselves and hope to lift one of the most prestigious prize in world football: the FIFA World Cup trophy. Like every World Cup preceding it, this year will be no different as we will see a flock of new faces squaring off against one another in the field. So, without further ado here’s the list of players most likely to light up the tournament:10. Mohamed Salah (Egypt):The Egyptian National Team will be performing for the third time in 28 years and 25 year old Mohamed Salah is the one that they are relying upon the most. The Liverpool FC and national forward had a fantastic season in the Premier League with an astonishing statistics of 32 goals in 36 matches. He also played a pivotal role in lifting his team to the 2018 UEFA Champions League Final. However, in the final against Real Madrid, he injured his left shoulder in the 30th minute after a controversial physical tackle with Madrid defender, Sergio Ramos. The Egyptian FA stated that this would have no effect on his playing at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and that Salah would still be named in the team’s final squad on 4 June.9. Paulo Dybala (Argentina): At only 23 years Paulo Dybala is one of the youngest players in the Argentine squad. Yet, at such a young age the Juventus forward has won the hearts of football fans all over the world. He has scored 22 goals in 33 matches for the 2017-18 Serie A season. His passing, dribbling and shooting technique is reminiscent of his football idol, Lionel Messi. While he still is under no circumstances in contention to be compared with Neymar Jr., Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, if he continues to perform like this, he will surely fit that category one day. Along with Messi, Dybala might just be the man that may help Argentina lift the World Cup.8. Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium): Undoubtedly, Kevin De Bruyne is one of the key players in the Belgian squad. The 26 year old, Manchester City midfielder is one of the best modern day playmaker due to his finesse, wide range of passing and long-range shooting skills. While he was not at his absolute best in the current season, he did manage to score 8 goals in 37 different occasions with 16 assists. He was a part of the national squad that reached the quarter-finals of the 2014 Brazil World Cup and the 2016 UEFA Euro in France. 7. Antoine Griezmann (France):27 year old French striker, Antoine Griezmann is one of the best assets for Les Bleus. The Atletico Madrid forward found the net 19 times in 32 different occasions in the 2017-18 season. Hailed as one of the best goalscorers of his generation by many, Griezmann might be the one that may help France win their second World Cup after 1998.6. Andres Iniesta (Spain):34 year old legend Andres Iniesta will be making his final World Cup appearance this year having already played his last match for FC Barcelona. Regarded by many football fans and pundits as one of the best players of his generation and one of the greatest midfielders of all time, his winning goal in the final against Netherlands helped Spain win the 2010 World Cup. Although, this is his final appearance for the national team he might help Spain bag their second World Cup victory.5. Toni Kroos (Germany): At 27 years old, it is surprising to know that Toni Kroos has won it all at both club level and the international level. Reigning world champions, Germany are one of the biggest favourites heading into the Russia World Cup and a second consecutive World Cup victory would mean matching Brazil’s feat of winning the competition in five different occasions. Playing a pivotal role in Germany’s 2014 World Cup victory its certain that he will once again rise to the occasion.4. Luis Suarez (Uruguay):The 30 year old Uruguayan is probably one of the best strikers in the world right now and he has proved his mettle in the English Premier League with Liverpool and then in La Liga with FC Barcelona. With a record of 25 goals in 33 matches in the current La Liga season, it proves that the Uruguay national team can count on him to be the powerhouse for their team.3. Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal): At 33 years old, this might be the Real Madrid icon’s last chance to win the biggest prize in international football. In the summer of 2016, CR7 was able to guide his country to the first major title in its history, upon claiming the Euro Cup. The 4-time Ballon d’Or winner, who is regarded by many as the best player in the world, alongside Argentina’s Lionel Messi, is expected to captain Portugal in his 4th World Cup participation as a player.2. Neymar (Brazil): Widely considered by many as one of the best players of his time along with Lionel Messi of Argentina and Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal, the 26 year old Brazilian forward is the biggest asset in Brazil’s arsenal. With 19 goals in 20 matches, the Paris Saint Germain striker will undoubtedly be one of the best performers in the tournament.1. Lionel Messi (Argentina):The 30 year old Argentine forward is considered by most as the best football player of his generation. While he has won all with his club, FC Barcelona, he has never managed to achieve that level of success in the national level. A maestro of the game who puts fear in the hearts of the defenses of the opponent, this might be his last chance to win it for his nation after coming so close in the 2014 World Cup.Also Read: FIFA World Cup 2018: 10 Underrated Players To Watch Out ForAlso Read: FIFA World Cup 2018: Match Schedule in Indian Standard TimeAdvertisementlast_img read more

ICC World T20: Virat Kohli thought India were down and out during chase vs Australia

first_imgBatting superstar Virat Kohli feared that India were virtually out of the ICC World T20 after the first 10 overs of their chase against Australia and has no idea how he and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni managed to achieve the seemingly imposing target.”It virtually felt like you are out of the tournament at the end of 10 overs. To pull the game back after that along with MS Dhoni – I don’t know how we did it. Even out there in the middle, I didn’t know how this was happening. I am just grateful that I was able to do it for the team,” Kohli told BCCI.TV after scripting India’s memorable win.He spoke about how emotional he became once Mahendra Singh Dhoni hit the winning boundary.”It was a pretty emotional feeling when I saw Dhoni hitting the winning runs. I don’t really know what to say.”That is the reason you play the sport. That is the feeling that you crave as a sportsperson. It is such a wonderful moment for your team. To see your teammates celebrate and get happy is a wonderful feeling,” added Kohli. (Kohli ushers in a new era, move over Tendulkar and Lara )By his own admission, he has ‘never played an innings’ in a situation where 39 were needed in last three overs.”I have never played an innings like that where we needed 39 off 3 overs and I have been able to pull it off with MS Dhoni batting at the other end,” Kohli said after his masterclass that took India into the semi-finals.advertisementKohli said that he had decided to target James Faulkner in the 18th over.”The thoughts, the pre-planning for the boundary just kept coming to me in my mind. I knew a hundred per cent that I had to target James Faulkner in the 18th over. I thought 3 overs and 39 runs, and one over has to be a big one at least close to 15 runs. We got bigger (19) than that. I think just before the 16th over, I thought if we don’t get too many boundaries, we might be struggling in the end because the pitch was not as flat.””The slower balls were holding up. It was very important to stay in the moment and pick your gaps. It was a quick outfield, so I knew if I could beat the fielder inside the ring, I would probably end up getting four runs.”The best part about having Dhoni at the other end is that he pushed for the twos.”I think what really helped was him (Dhoni) running those twos. The opposition panicked a bit because of that. They were unsettled because they knew we could run the runs as well and get 12 off one over without taking a risk. I think that is when the bowlers started thinking too much,” Kohli said.”Credit to MS Dhoni. He kept me calm and kept telling me – ‘Pick your areas, these many runs are left in these many balls’. He didn’t want me to get carried away or over excited. (Virat Kohli best batsman in the world, says Sunil Gavaskar )”He just kept telling me what are the areas I could pick and that just gave me assurance,” Kohli said.”If I was going to go towards covers, he would give me assurance again and I became confident. I think that is where communication and partnership helps. It was wonderful to pull the team out of that situation.”Kohli said that it is for the cricket lovers to decide where to put this Indian chase in the pecking order.”I don’t know where I would put this chase. It is up to the people to decide that. I enjoy playing every innings for my country. Hopefully, they think this is one of the better chases the Indian team has pulled off. Not just me, it is an effort by everyone. I scored 82; I didn’t score all the runs in the game. Others have contributed as well, so credit goes to them also.”last_img read more

F1: Sebastian Vettel wins Belgian GP after first-lap mayhem

first_imgFerrari’s Sebastian Vettel sped away from first corner carnage to celebrate a commanding Belgian Grand Prix victory on Sunday and trim Lewis Hamilton’s Formula One lead to 17 points with eight races remaining.Hamilton, last year’s winner in Belgium, started from pole position but finished second for Mercedes while Red Bull’s Max Verstappen gave his army of Dutch fans something to cheer with third place.In the battle of four times world champions, Hamilton now has 231 points to Vettel’s 214.”I had a great start, I’m not sure Lewis saw me as he pushed me to the left in the first lap, but after last year I ended up short, and this year it was the other way around,” said Vettel of his decisive pass on Hamilton.”As soon as I was ahead I relaxed. I had a good restart after the safety car, and after that it was a very smooth race,” he added.Lap 1, Turn 1 – all the angles #BelgianGP #F1 1 (@F1) August 26, 2018The start provided most of the afternoon’s excitement, with Fernando Alonso’s McLaren flying over Charles Leclerc’s Sauber at the La Source hairpin after being rammed by Renault’s Nico Hulkenberg.All three retired as the safety car was deployed for four laps but Leclerc had reason to thank the ‘halo’ head protection system — introduced this season — for allowing him to step away unscathed.Television close-up images after the race showed the structure heavily marked by the impact.”The Halo was a very good thing to have today. I think for him, it helped,” commented Spaniard Alonso, who will be leaving Formula One at the end of the season.advertisementFerrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, a four times winner in Belgium, and Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo also collided at the start and retired after pitting, the Finn having to wait for his 100th career podium.At the front, Vettel swiftly seized the lead from Hamilton down the Kemmel straight on the opening lap and never looked back, taking the chequered flag 11.0 seconds clear of Hamilton.That winning feelingWin number 5 for Vettel in 2018#BelgianGP #F1 1 (@F1) August 26, 2018″He drove past me like I wasn’t even there on the straight,” said Hamilton, who was quick to shake his rival’s hand and offer congratulations.”They have got a few trick things going on in the car,” he added. “I did what I could, we did what we could so we have to keep working.”It was the German’s fifth win of the campaign, matching his British rival, and 52nd of his career — one more than the great four times champion Alain Prost managed.A dominant victory for Sebastian Vettel in Spa!Both @ForceIndiaF1’s in the top 10 #BelgianGP #F1 1 (@F1) August 26, 2018Hamilton’s team mate Valtteri Bottas finished fourth, and set the fastest lap, after starting 17th.Force India began their existence under new ownership with a haul of points that lifted them immediately off the bottom of the standings.The team, who had started with all their constructors’ points taken away following confirmation as a new mid-season entry, had Mexican Sergio Perez fifth and Frenchman Esteban Ocon sixth.Haas duo Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen were seventh and eighth, with France’s Pierre Gasly ninth for Toro Rosso and Sweden’s Marcus Ericsson 10th for Sauber.McLaren’s Belgian driver Stoffel Vandoorne was last in his home race.last_img read more

Van Dijk: Kane’s fitness held him back in CL final

first_imgVirgil van Dijk believes Harry Kane’s lack of match fitness hindered him mentally during Liverpool’s 2-0 Champions League final win over Tottenham.Centre-back Van Dijk crowned a brilliant individual season by being named man of the match at the Wanda Metropolitano, where Kane was largely ineffective on his first appearance for almost two months following an ankle injury.The pair could face off once again on Thursday, when the Netherlands take on England in their Nations League Finals semi-final in Guimaraes.

And I think he’s definitely the best striker England have for the national team,” Van Dijk told a pre-match news conference.”But I also know that if you’re not 100 per cent fit, then it’s going to be in your head if you get a little knock or you pass and you get a little bit of pain.”It’s going to be in your head, so obviously I expected him to play the final, but I knew he was not going to be 100 per cent.”I don’t know if he’s playing tomorrow, but if he is, then we’ll see how we’re going to manage.”Speaking later on at his own briefing, England manager Gareth Southgate was not about to give an extensive public take on Kane’s Champions League final showing.”I don’t think it’s for me to comment on club performances in individual games because that then leads me into talking about other coaches and other players and they’re not my team,” he said.”Of course I was at the game and wanted to see how it played out. A lot of the service that went into Harry, he wasn’t favourite when it was arriving in his area.”The winner of the match between England and the Netherlands will face Portugal in the final, after Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick saw his side past Switzerland 3-1 on Wednesday.last_img read more

Griezmann explains Barcelona U-turn

first_imgAntoine Griezmann has said the time was right to join Barcelona after completing a long-awaited switch from Atletico Madrid.The France forward has signed a five-year deal after Barca agreed to trigger his €120 million (£107m/$134m) release clause.Griezmann was seemingly set to join Barca in the summer of 2018 only to confirm during a television documentary he was staying at Atletico. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare The 28-year-old forward signed a new contract with Atletico soon after, but reports surfaced in the second half of the 2018-19 campaign that he was hoping for another chance to join the Liga champions.And the attacker acknowledged that U-turn in his first public comments since becoming a Barca player on Friday, saying he was taught as a child that opportunities can come around again.”When I was a boy, my dad taught me that trains don’t come around just once,” Griezmann said in a video posted on Twitter by Barcelona.”Now it’s time to take on the challenge of a new destination. Finally, our paths cross.”I’ll defend the Barca colours with all my determination and commitment. It’s our time.”In addition to last year’s documentary and the player’s subsequent reversal, the transfer saga has seen Atletico levy accusations of improper conduct at both Barcelona and Griezmann, claiming they had been in negotiations while Diego Simeone’s side was still battling in the Champions League.And despite Friday’s announcement by the Liga champions, the saga does not appear to be over, as Atletico are insisting Barcelona should have paid €200m to activate his release clause.Atletico contend the France international agreed terms with Barca before his clause dropped on July 1 and thus they are entitled to the €200m figure.Griezmann’s former club released a statement Friday indicating they will take legal action to recoup that fee.”Atletico Madrid believes the termination of the contract occurred before the end of last season due to events, acts and demonstrations carried out by the player and that is why it [the club] has already started procedures it considers appropriate for the defence of its rights and legitimate interests,” said the club’s statement.last_img read more

Province Takes Next Steps on Review of Nova Scotia Home for Colored

first_imgThe province has appointed Robert Wright today, May 9, to lay the groundwork for a panel that will address allegations of abuse and seek to bring healing for former residents of the Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children. Mr. Wright is a registered social worker, educator and passionate advocate for equitable and culturally appropriate services for African Nova Scotians. “Robert has an impressive track record and he brings a wealth of understanding and sensitivity to this very important task,” said Premier Darrell Dexter. “This is another step in doing everything we can to ensure that former residents of the home have their voices heard, and that our programs and services are responsive to the needs of at-risk African Nova Scotian children and their families.” Mr. Wright will meet with former residents of the home and community members to develop terms of reference for a process that will allow former residents to share their stories, examine the response of public policies, programs and services, and provide a means of healing in the community. “We have a lot to learn from the former residents of the home, and they deserve to be heard,” said Mr. Wright. “I look forward to working with them on a restorative process that will thoroughly examine what happened and ensure we are doing all we can to protect children and families in need.” Mr. Wright is a private social-work clinician in Halifax.

Chandrayaan2 launch called off due to technical glitch ISRO to announce revised

first_imgSriharikota: Less than an hour before lift off, India’s second mission to Moon, Chandrayaan-2 onboard GSLVMkIII-M1 was Monday called off due to a technical snag, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said. The countdown to the launch scheduled for 2.51 am was stopped 56 minutes and 24 seconds before lift off at 1.55 am following the announcement from the Mission Control Centre. Confusion prevailed for several minutes before ISRO came out with an official confirmation about the launch being cancelled. Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF Day “A technical snag was observed in the launch vehicle system at t-minus 56 minutes. As a measure of abundant precaution Chandrayaan 2 launch has been called off for today,” ISRO Associate Director (Public Relations), B R Guruprasad said. “Revised launch date will be announced later,” he added. Another ISRO official said: “Launch is called off due to technical snag. It is not possible to make the launch within the (launch) window. (A new) launch schedule will be announced later.” Also Read – SC declines Oil Min request to stay sharing of documents on Reliance penalty The space agency had earlier scheduled the launch in the first week of January but shifted it to July 15. The lift-off of the three-component spacecraft weighing 3,850 kg and comprising an orbiter, the lander and the rover was scheduled from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) here. President Ram Nath Kovind was in Sriharikota to witness the launch. The Chandrayaan-2 was supposed to explore the uncharted lunar south pole, 11 years after ISRO’s successful first lunar mission– Chandrayaan-1, which made more than 3,400 orbits around the moon and was operational for 312 days till August 29, 2009. The Rs 978 crore Chandrayaan-2 onboard the heavy-lift rocket Geosynchronous Launch Vehicle GSLV-MkIII-M1, nicknamed Baahubali, would have taken 54 days to accomplish the task of landing on the Moon through meticulously planned orbital phases. After a full dress rehearsal last week, the countdown for the mission commenced at 6.51 am on Sunday and scientists had undergone various stages of propellant filling to power the rocket ahead of the launch. Billed as the most complex and prestigious mission ever undertaken by the ISRO since its inception, Chandrayaan-2 would make India the fourth country to soft land a rover on the lunar surface after Russia, the United States and China.last_img read more

UN Pope Franciss Visit to Morocco is Extremely Important

Rabat – The United Nations has described Pope Francis’s visit to Morocco as “extremely  important.”The spokesperson of the United Nations Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, said that the Jerusalem appeal signed by King Mohammed VI and Pope Francis “goes along the lines of what the Secretary-General has been saying for a quite long time, that Jerusalem has a sacred character for Jews, for Christians and Muslims and that it needs to be preserved.”On Saturday, March 30, the pope and the King expressed concerns through an appeal to the world to warn against moves that undermine the status of Jerusalem. “We believe it is important to preserve the Holy City of Jerusalem (Al-Quds Al-Sharif) as a shared heritage of humankind and to safeguard it, above all for the believers of the three monotheistic religions, as a symbol of peaceful coexistence and as a meeting place where mutual esteem and dialogue are fostered,” reads the appeal.Dujarric said that the pope’s visit to Morocco is “extremely important and extremely symbolic.”“Anything that can bring greater understanding and tolerance between religions is to be welcomed and the issue of migrants and the protection of migrants and the respect of migrants’ dignity is something that is very close to the Secretary-General’s heart,” said the spokesperson in a press briefing on April 1.The European Union also expressed satisfaction with the Jerusalem appeal.A spokesman of the EU, quoted by Maghreb Arab Press (MAP), said that the European institution “recognizes the special importance of the holy places of Jerusalem for the three monotheistic religions.”The unidentified spokesperson added that the EU also “firmly believes that the status quo established in 1976 must be maintained in accordance with the previous agreements.”Pope Francis dedicated his first-ever visit to Morocco to discussing migrants’ rights, interfaith coexistence, and the importance of charity.Meeting hundreds of migrants during his visit, the pope chaired a holy mass at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat, convening Christians from all over the world.An estimated 10,000 people attended the pope’s mass.On his way back to the Vatican, Pope Francis regretted issues facing migrants.The pope also criticized US President Donald Trump’s policy regarding migrants, saying that the world should invest in building bridges, not walls.“Those who build bridges are moving forward. The bridge is for human communication, it is very beautiful and I have seen it here in Morocco,” the pope told the press. read more

UN envoy urges people of Darfur to participate in new dialogue initiative

25 February 2011The head of the joint United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur (UNAMID), Ibrahim Gambari, has urged inhabitants of the troubled Sudanese region to engage in dialogue to find a solution to their protracted conflict, saying a process of popular consultations would soon begin. “Now is the time for all Darfuris, for the Government and the opposition, for the armed groups and for the government forces, to come together and enter in a dialogue designed to resolve their differences and herald peace in Darfur,” Mr. Gambari wrote in an op-ed published in today’s edition of the Guardian newspaper in the United Kingdom. He said that the Darfur Political Process, which he described as “a series of broadly inclusive popular consultations” would give everyone an opportunity to express their views on how the conflict can be brought to an end. “Crucial to the credibility and prospects for success of this Darfur-based initiative is the need to ensure that those represented are able to participate without fear of being harmed, harassed, detained or otherwise restricted as a result of their involvement. “I have sought and obtained assurances from the highest levels of government that steps will be taken for a suitable, enabling environment that protects the basic rights and freedoms of all participants,” Mr. Gambari wrote. He said that some stakeholders had expressed concern that the initiative may be susceptible to interference and manipulation, but gave the assurance that he and former South African President, Thabo Mbeki, and the African Union high-level panel on Darfur that he chairs, had elicited pledges from the government that it will respect the independence of the process and refrain from interfering in it. Mr. Gambari urged the international community to “stay the course in Sudan and replicate recent achievements in the implementation of the north-south peace process by brokering peace in Darfur.” The people of Southern Sudan voted overwhelming in a referendum in January to secede from the rest of the country. The vote was the culmination of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) that ended two decades of civil war between the North and the South that claimed the lives of some two million people and drove an estimated 4.5 million others from their homes. “The immediate post-referendum environment presents an ideal opportunity to marshal our common resolve to broker, successfully and honestly, a durable solution to the conflict. The people of Darfur deserve no less than our collective and full commitment to attain this goal. Their lives, their hopes, their dreams and their futures depend on it,” wrote Mr. Gambari. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, meanwhile, told a Security Council session on peace and security in Africa that peace talks in the Qatari capital, Doha, between the Government of Sudan and the two main rebel groups in Darfur are continuing and that the parties are currently reviewing a draft agreement. “It is essential for the international community to step up its engagement and help the parties reach an inclusive and comprehensive peace,” said Mr. Ban, referring to the talks between the Sudanese Government, the Justice and Equality Movement and the Liberation and Justice Movement. The Secretary-General also voiced concern over hostilities between the Government and an alliance of rebel groups in North Darfur state, which has reportedly displaced large numbers of civilians. read more

Indian fishermen to protest over Sri Lanka

“We condemn the central government’s indifference. We demand compensation for the boats damaged in Sri Lankan custody,” said Jesuraja. The ministry of external affairs has asked fishermen to find an alternative job and to adopt deep sea fishing. “But we need time to shift to deep sea fishing. We proposed to hand over a good number of our boats under a buyback scheme. The minister said she would consider the possibility of a buyback scheme,” said Jesuraja. Fishermen in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry on Monday decided to call for a bandh to protest against the central government’s indifference to the issues concerning them, the Times of India reported.At a meeting held in Rameswaram, fishermen leaders also decided to get support from political parties. “In the coming days, we are going to meet the leaders of all political parties. We are also planning to call for a one-day bandh in Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry to condemn the Centre’s indifference to us,” said Ramanathapuram district secretary of the Tamil Nadu Mechanised Boat Fishermen Association B Jesuraja. The meeting was held in the backdrop of external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj’s advice to the fishermen not to cross the territorial waters of Sri Lanka and the central government’s alleged hesitation to intervene every time Indian fishermen are arrested by the Sri Lankan navy. Out of 81 boats released by Sri Lanka, fishermen could salvage only 61 boats and the rest have to be abandoned since they were damaged beyond repair. Even among the 61 boats, nearly ten boats had suffered extensive damage, fishermen said.Fishermen said the meeting between Sushma Swaraj and their leaders disappointed them. “The minister asked us not to venture into Sri Lankan waters. She asked us to carry out fishing in Indian waters, but there is no fish in our waters,” said D Arockiam, a fisherman in Rameswaram. read more

Chief of UN aid agency for Palestinians asks striking workers to return

Peter Hansen, Commissioner-General of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), voiced his growing distress over the effect the strike by 4,000 workers, which began 11 October, is having on the humanitarian situation for over 660,000 Palestinians. Mr. Hansen asked all UNRWA area staff in the West Bank to put the interests of the refugee population that they serve above all other considerations. He said in a statement that the Agency’s management has never closed the door on negotiations and is willing to consider legitimate demands once the strike is over. “The general respect and admiration that UNRWA staff have enjoyed in the past is being undermined by an apparent disregard for the needs of the refugee community that they serve,” he said. The UNRWA chief said he is particularly worried about the effect the absence of teachers from schools is having on 60,000 pupils at UNRWA’s 95 schools in the West Bank, many of whom have already lost hundreds of schools days due to other interruptions caused by curfews and closures. He is also disturbed by the denial of emergency health services to refugees and the possibly tragic consequences of delayed vaccinations. Of special concern are those chronically ill refugees who now have no access to UNRWA-supplied medicines and the current lack of ambulance services. In addition, the Agency is worried about the deteriorating sanitary conditions in refugee camps where solid waste is becoming an increasing health hazard. The strike has also brought to a halt the distribution of basic food rations to some 38,000 of the very poorest refugees – those in UNRWA’s Special Hardship programme as well as the thousands of beneficiaries of UNRWA’s emergency food aid – and has delayed shipments of food items and medical supplies. read more

UN and partners gear up to fight neglected tropical diseases affecting billions

“Preventive chemotherapy does not necessarily stop infection taking place but it can help to reduce transmission,” the Director of the UN World Health Organization (WHO) Department for the Control of Neglected Tropical Diseases, Lorenzo Savioli, said. “The benefit of preventive chemotherapy is that it immediately improves health and prevents irreversible disease in adults.”The approach contained in a newly published manual, Preventive Chemotherapy in Human Helminthiasis, focuses on using a set of low-cost or free drugs to simultaneously treat the four most common diseases caused by worms and afflicting over 1 billion people: river blindness (onchocerciasis), elephantiasis (lymphatic filariasis), schistosomiasis, and soil-transmitted helminthiasis. The cost: as low as 40 cents per person per year.“In the same way as we protect people against a number of vaccine-preventable diseases throughout their lives, the regular and coordinated use of a few drugs can protect people against worm-induced disease, improving children’s performance at school and the economic productivity of adults,” Mr. Savioli said.The new approach provides a critical first step in combining treatment for diseases which, although different, require common resources and delivery strategies for control or elimination. The second key component brings together for the first time dozens of agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), pharmaceutical companies and others into a coordinated assault on neglected diseases. The diseases’ impact can be measured in the impaired growth and development of children, complications during pregnancies, underweight babies, significant and sometimes disabling disfigurements, blindness, social stigma, and reduced economic productivity and household incomes.These effects can be dramatically reduced by using highly effective drugs of proven quality and excellent safety record – the majority donated free by companies or costing less than $0.40 per person per year, including the cost of the drugs and their delivery.“We need to urgently work together to improve access to rapid-impact interventions and quality care,” WHO Acting Assistant Director-General for Communicable Diseases David Heymann said. “The need to do so is incontestable from all perspectives: moral, human rights, economic and global public good. The task is feasible and must be done.”Soil-transmitted helminthiasis affects more than 2 billion people worldwide, producing a wide range of symptoms that include diarrhoea, general weakness affecting working and learning capacities, impaired physical growth and anaemia.It is estimated that 1.2 billion people in 83 countries live in areas endemic for lymphatic filariasis and about 120 million people are affected by the disease, with chronic complications including elephantiasis of the limbs, and damage to the genital organs, kidneys and lymphatic system. Schistosomiasis affects about 200 million people worldwide, with more than 650 million living in endemic areas, and can cause bladder and ureteral complications, liver enlargement and bladder cancer in late-stages. Onchocerciasis is endemic in 30 countries in Africa, 6 in the Americas, and in Yemen in the Arabian peninsula, with an estimated 100 million at risk of infection 37 million already infected with the disease which can cause rashes, subcutaneous nodules, intense itching, elephantiasis of the genitalia, and eye lesions that can lead to blindness. The partners range from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the United States Centers for Disease Control to leading pharmaceutical companies. read more

NDP says Huawei concerns in US a wakeup call to Canada on

NDP says Huawei concerns in U.S. a wake-up call to Canada on Nexen by Mike Blanchfield, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 9, 2012 6:37 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – A U.S. congressional panel’s scathing criticism of China technology firms should give the Harper government cause to reject the proposed Chinese takeover of Alberta oil company Nexen, the opposition NDP said Tuesday.Industry Canada could announce as early as this week the result of its review of the $15.1-billion bid by the state-owned China National Offshore Oil Co. for Calgary-based Nexen Inc. (TSX:NXY).The NDP opposes the CNOOC takeover because it says ceding control of the large Canadian resource company to a state-owned Chinese interest raises national security concerns, among others.The party’s foreign affairs and natural resources critics, Paul Dewar and Peter Julian, pointed to Monday’s warning by the U.S. House Intelligence Committee that the States should avoid doing business with Huawei Technologies Ltd. and ZTE Corp.The committee revived long-standing criticism that the companies are linked to Chinese intelligence, which could use their products for cyber-espionage — a charge both the companies and the Chinese government loudly denied Tuesday.Dewar said the U.S. warning in the telecom case helps make the case for the Harper government to nix the Nexen energy deal.“This isn’t about selling wheat,” Dewar said in an interview Tuesday.“Look at the two strategic interests we have in our country: natural resources and telecommunications. The two issues we’re dealing with right now are both of those,” he added.“Any of these business arrangements should be dealt with, with an abundance of caution.”Julian criticized the government for weighing the Nexen takeover behind closed doors, without adequately explaining how it will balance the “net benefit” of the deal with the national security risks of allowing CNOOC a controlling interest in the oilsands.Monday’s U.S. report came after the matter was considered during months of public hearings by the House committee, Julian noted.“I think what this is, is a very strong wake-up call to this government to get its act together,” said Julian.“It certainly will have an impact on public opinion.”Prime Minister Stephen Harper indicated last week that his government is grappling with a range of difficult policy questions on whether to approve the Nexen deal.The government has until this Friday, but could extend the review period another 30 days.Monday’s U.S. report urged companies to avoid doing business with Huawei and ZTE and said regulators should prevent them from buying U.S. companies. It also said government computer systems should not include components from them because they might pose an espionage risk.The report has implications for Canada because Huawei is partnered with Bell Canada and Telus.Huawei could also be in the running to help build the government’s new secure telecommunications system.A spokesman for Shared Services Canada said Tuesday night he could not comment “on any particular equipment supplier.”“In order to protect its national security interest, the Government of Canada has in fact invoked the National Security Exception under Canada’s domestic and international trade agreements in connection with the procurement of consolidated email, telecommunications and data centre infrastructure, systems and services,” spokesman Ted Frances said in an email.Huawei Canada employs 400 people in Ontario, including 280 people at a facility in Markham, near Toronto.Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty said he wasn’t concerned by the criticism raised in the U.S., adding that it’s up to the federal government to deal with international security questions.“At some point in time if authorities within the federal government believe that they have real concerns, then I expect that they will raise those with us,” McGuinty said Tuesday.“I have a lot of confidence in our police authorities and a lot of confidence in Canadian authorities generally when it comes to providing us with advice on that front.”China’s government rejected the U.S. report as false and an effort to block Chinese companies from the American market.“The Chinese side expresses its serious concerns and strong opposition,” commerce ministry spokesman Shen Danyang said in a statement Tuesday. He called on the United States to “abandon the practice of discrimination against Chinese companies.”Huawei and ZTE, both based in Shenzhen in southern China, near Hong Kong, rejected the accusation and complained that the committee failed to provide evidence to back it up.The report “employs many rumours and speculations to prove non-existent accusations,” a Huawei spokesman, Scott Sykes, said in an email.— with files from The Associated Press read more

VistaJet orders up to 142 Bombardier jets in deal worth up to

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 27, 2012 3:18 pm MDT VistaJet orders up to 142 Bombardier jets in deal worth up to US$7.8 billion MONTREAL – Bombardier has made the biggest sale of business aircraft in its history with a deal to provide up to 142 Global aircraft to a private European luxury charter company in a transaction potentially worth up to US$7.8 billion.VistaJet has placed firm orders for 56 of the large-cabin business jets and optioned a further 86 Global jets in a deal that will propel the U.K.-based company’s growth in emerging markets.The firm orders are valued at US$3.1 billion at current list prices, although large orders typically obtain significant discounts. Options would add as much as $4.7 billion to the total value of the deal.Cameron Doerksen of National Bank Financial estimates the firm order will add 15 cents per share to Montreal-based Bombardier’s bottom line and 35 cents per share if all options are exercised.Doerksen said he remains “somewhat cautious” on Bombardier’s shares due to lingering uncertainty around the development of the CSeries jet for commercial airlines, the potential for weaker margin guidance from Bombardier, and the weak free cash flow generation that may persist through 2013.“The VistaJet order is clearly positive for Bombardier and should give investors additional comfort around business jet delivery levels in the coming years,” Doerksen wrote in a report.Benoit Poirier of Desjardins Capital Markets said the VistaJet announcement was a positive for Bombardier as it confirms its strong leadership in terms of market share in the high-end business jet segment.Bombardier’s shares (TSX:BBD.B) took off in Tuesday trading, rising 26 cents, or 8.33, at C$3.38 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Based in the United Kingdom, VistaJet currently operates a fleet of Bombardier aircraft based in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and West Africa. The company told reporters Tuesday that it considered other aircraft manufacturers over 18 months before deciding to stick exclusively with Bombardier.The company only maintains aircraft that are within the five-year warranty so some of the new planes will be used to replace its existing fleet. VistaJet took 17 deliveries last year and expects to see about one new plane added each month as of January 2014.The new purchase is part of VistaJet’s goal of making business aviation more accessible to emerging markets, said VistaJet chairman Thomas Flohr, who founded the company in 2004.“This order is the most significant milestone for VistaJet and is a testimony to our successful strategy that focuses on global coverage,” Flohr said in a joint statement by the companies.“Our customers need to fly point-to-point across the globe, and in many instances at short notice,” he added, supporting the order for aircraft with longer ranges and cabin size, along with cockpit commonality.VistaJet said the planes are aimed at underserved emerging markets, where demand has grown by 25 cents annually over the past four years driven by the “race for resources” in areas such as Russia, Africa and Mongolia.Robert Stallard of RBC Capital Markets said the order is consistent with improving industry demand for large cabin business jets.“We think this billionaire class of high-net worth individuals and corporate leaders remains resilient to the macroeconomic challenges in the US and Europe whilst the millionaire buyers of small cabin planes remain nervous on the outlook,” he wrote in a report.“As a result, we think demand for large cabin bizjets from Gulfstream, Bombardier and Dassault remains solid, which supports key suppliers like Honeywell, Rockwell Collins, SAFRAN (Messier-Buggatti-Dowty), Rolls-Royce and Meggitt.”The order follows a US$7.3 billion contract signed in June with NetJets for up to 275 Challenger mid-size jets and a US$6.7 billion deal in March 2011 also with NetJets for up to 120 Global series of jets. Bombardier also signed a 15-year service and maintenance contract with NetJets in June worth US$2.3 billion if all options are exercised.NetJets is a unit of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., the main company of renowned billionaire investor Warren Buffett.Steve Ridolfi, the president of Bombardier Business Aircraft, said the VistaJet contract was a historic order for Bombardier.“It goes without saying that we are thrilled VistaJet has again chosen to grow their fleet with the industry-leading Global family,” Ridolfi said.VistaJet has placed firm orders for 25 Global 5000s, 25 Global 6000s and six Global 8000 jets. Deliveries will begin in 2014.The Montreal-based manufacturer said the order won’t likely result in job increases in Toronto where the plane is assembled or at the completion centre in Montreal.“It’s a long-term agreement so we’re looking at orders over the next 10 years in terms of delivery so it’s going to fit into our workflow,” spokeswoman Danielle Boudreau said from London, where the deal was announced.Several large components of the Global 5000 and 6000 aircraft are made at Bombardier’s plant in Queretaro, Mexico. The aft fuselage for the new Global 7000 and 8000 planes will also be built there.The Global aircraft are Bombardier’s largest business aircraft and are believed to carry the biggest margins.The Global 7000 is slated to enter into service in 2016 with a larger cabin and a 13,520-kilometre range that can carry 10 passengers non-stop between Beijing and Washington. The Global 8000 due to enter into service a year later will have the world’s longest-range business jet of 14,630 kilometres.Analysts said Bombardier will likely result in it boosting the production rate from the current estimated pace of five aircraft per month. Bombardier said it won’t disclose if the rate of production will increase and said it’s premature to talk about rate increases because of the long-term delivery schedule. read more

This photo of an assassination is the controversial winner of the World

first_img Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article This photo of an assassination is the controversial winner of the World Press Photo award As bullets started to fly, Burhan Ozbilici captured the image of the gunman standing over his victim. By AFP Feb 13th 2017, 9:54 PM 19 Comments Share38 Tweet Email Please note, the image below contains an image of graphic violence.BRANDISHING A GUN, his face contorted with rage, the shocking image of an off-duty Turkish policeman assassinating the Russian envoy to Turkey has won the prestigious World Press Photo Award.Judges praised the bravery of Burhan Ozbilici, a photographer for the Associated Press, who stood his ground as 22-year-old policeman Mevlut Mert Altintas pumped nine bullets into ambassador Andrei Karlov at the opening of an Ankara exhibition.Altintas shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest”) and “Don’t forget Aleppo” as he opened fire, vowing those responsible for events in Syria would be held accountable.“From the moment I heard the shots I knew this was a historic moment, very serious,” Ozbilici told AFP.“I knew I had to do my job. As a journalist, I couldn’t just run away to save my skin.” The winner of the World Press Photo of the year Source: Burhan Ozbilici/AP PhotoThe powerful photo went viral and has been viewed some 18 million times.Judges from the World Press Photo Foundation in Amsterdam acknowledged it had been tough to choose the 2017 winner from over 80,400 images by 5,034 photographers from 125 countries.“It was a very, very difficult decision, but in the end we felt that the picture of the year was an explosive image that really spoke to the hatred of our times,” said jury member Mary Calvert.Agence France-Presse also scooped three awards. Manila-based photographer Noel Celis took third place in the General News category for his photo of inmates trying to sleep in an over-populated prison in the city.Syrian snappers Abd Doumany and Ameer Alhalbi won second prize in the Spot News category for pictures of children caught up in the bombardments of Aleppo and Douma near Damascus. It is the second year in the row that Doumany’s work has been honoured by the World Press Photo foundation.‘Morally problematic’But the winning photo sparked dissensions on the jury, with president Stuart Franklin, a British photographer, saying: “I voted against. Sorry, Burhan.”“It’s a photograph of a murder, the killer and the slain, both seen in the same picture, and morally as problematic to publish as a terrorist beheading,” he wrote in The Guardian.He argued that “placing the photograph on this high pedestal is an invitation to those contemplating such staged spectaculars.”Ozbilici, who covered the failed coup bid in Turkey and been sent on mission to Syria, Libya and Egypt, said he always tried to be ready for difficult tests, “to have the courage to confront a world which has been made rotten by the dishonest and corrupt, in order to try to do some good.”He said he was sorry for the death of the envoy, whom he described as a “natural, kind, sincere man” whose death was a direct consequence of the “Syrian catastrophe.”“This photo marked an important moment in the history of Turkey, especially in its relations with Russia,” said Ozbilici, who has worked for AP since 1989.‘Edge of abyss’Jury members agreed his photo captured an important moment in time.“Right now, I see the world marching towards the edge of an abyss,” said jury member Joao Silva, referring to Altintas as a man who had “clearly reached a breaking point.This image to me talks of everything that is happening across the world. It is the face of hatred.A total of 45 photographers won awards across eight categories, touching on a vast array of subjects – from racial tensions in Louisiana to walls built around the world to thwart migrants.Jury member Tanya Habjouqa said the choice of the 2017 winners was “bold”.“I think the selection is definitely going to push forward a debate and I think it is a debate that is essential to have,” she said.The competition itself was directly affected by the travel measures brought in by US President Donald Trump, when one of the nine jury members, Palestinian Eman Mohammed, cancelled her trip to Amsterdam.Amid the chaos unleashed by the ban, she decided it was too risky to leave her young children in the US where she lives, fearing she might not be allowed back in again.- © AFP 2017Read: The 27 photographs that took our breath away in 2016 27,127 Views Monday 13 Feb 2017, 9:54 PMlast_img read more

Solar cell mystery solved expected to greatly increase efficiency

first_img Explore further But in a new study published in Science Advances, Dong Shi et al. have taken a closer look at spiro-OMeTAD and found that it still has a great deal of untapped potential. For the first time, they have grown single crystals of the pure material, and in doing so, they have made the surprising discovery that spiro-OMeTAD’s single-crystal structure has a hole mobility that is three orders of magnitude greater than that of its thin-film form (which is currently used in solar cells). “This paper reports a major breakthrough for the fields of perovskite and solid-state dye-sensitized solar cells by finally clarifying the potential performance of the material and showing that improving the crystallinity of the hole transport layer is the key strategy for further breakthroughs in device engineering of these solar cells,” Osman Bakr, a professor of engineering at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia and leader of the study, told The findings suggest that, at least in the short term, the time-consuming process of designing and synthesizing radically new organic hole conductors as replacements to spiro-OMeTAD may not be necessary.In general, perovskite solar cells and dye-sensitized solar cells are made of three critical layers. Two of these layers—the electron-transporting layer and the light-absorbing layer—are well-understood structurally. However, the mesoscale packing structure of the hole-transporting layer, which is usually spiro-OMeTAD, has so far eluded researchers, and consequently its charge transport mechanisms have remained a mystery.In the new study, the researchers figured out a way to grow pure single crystals of spiro-OMeTAD by dissolving the spiro-OMeTAD in a carefully chosen solvent. They then placed this vial inside a larger vial containing an antisolvent, in which spiro-OMeTAD does not dissolve as well, and allowed the antisolvent vapor to slowly diffuse into the inner vial. Eventually the solution in the inner vial becomes supersaturated, so that not all of the spiro-OMeTAD can stay dissolved, causing the spiro-OMeTAD to crystallize. The researchers then performed a variety of measurements on the crystals to investigate their charge transport mechanisms and other properties.The results are much more encouraging than expected, in many ways running contrary to the conventional wisdom based on the material’s large-scale structure, which suggested that the material had reached its limits. Although the method used here to grow single crystals cannot be performed at a large scale, the researchers predict that similar methods that use an antisolvent to trigger crystallization could be used to enhance the crystallinity of the thin-layer spiro-OMeTAD, improving its hole mobility in order to make more efficient solar cells.”These astonishing findings open a new direction for the development of perovskite solar cells and dye-sensitized solar cells by showing the still untapped potential of spiro-OMeTAD,” Bakr said. “They unravel a key mystery that has confounded the photovoltaic community for the last 17 years.” (Left) The set-up used to grow single crystals of spiro-OMeTAD, based on antisolvent vapor-assisted crystallization.

DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1501491AbstractWe report the crystal structure and hole-transport mechanism in spiro-OMeTAD [2,2′,7,7′-tetrakis(N,N-di-p-methoxyphenyl-amine)9,9′-spirobifluorene], the dominant hole-transporting material in perovskite and solid-state dye-sensitized solar cells. Despite spiro-OMeTAD’s paramount role in such devices, its crystal structure was unknown because of highly disordered solution-processed films; the hole-transport pathways remained ill-defined and the charge carrier mobilities were low, posing a major bottleneck for advancing cell efficiencies. We devised an antisolvent crystallization strategy to grow single crystals of spiro-OMeTAD, which allowed us to experimentally elucidate its molecular packing and transport properties. Electronic structure calculations enabled us to map spiro-OMeTAD’s intermolecular charge-hopping pathways. Promisingly, single-crystal mobilities were found to exceed their thin-film counterparts by three orders of magnitude. Our findings underscore mesoscale ordering as a key strategy to achieving breakthroughs in hole-transport material engineering of solar cells. © 2016 Phys.orgcenter_img This document is subject to copyright.

Germany France urge closer European unity

first_img Top Stories He denounced vandals who desecrated at least 40 graves of Germans killed in World War I in a military cemetery in Saint-Etienne-a-Arnes in northern France on the eve of Sunday’s meeting.“No dark forces, much less foolish acts, can alter the deep movement of Franco-German friendship,” he said.The reason for the attack, not far from Reims in a region that saw battles in both world wars, was unclear. French authorities were investigating. France sees occasional cemetery vandalism, usually targeting Jewish or Muslim graves.Hollande hailed de Gaulle and Adenauer for “the audacity to imagine a common future after so much pain” and their “greatness” for laying the groundwork for Franco-German friendship that became a basis for the European Union.“Europe can emerge stronger from this crisis,” Merkel said.Hollande, known for his sense of humor, broke the somber mood by joking about the unusually blustery July weather. “It’s weather like this that seals friendships,” he said with a smile.___Angela Charlton in Paris contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

It was in Reims that Germans signed their surrender to the Allies on May 7, 1945, heralding the end of World War II in Europe.On July 8, 1962, De Gaulle and Adenauer shook hands in a symbolic gesture meant to bury generations of enmity between France and Germany. On Sunday, Merkel and Hollande exchanged kisses on the cheek.Today’s leaders, whose countries are the biggest economies in the eurozone, acknowledged the challenges facing the shared currency as debts in smaller countries have affected the whole region and worry markets worldwide. The conservative Merkel and Socialist Hollande disagree on some key issues raised in seeking solutions to the crisis, including sharing debts across the eurozone.“The economic union … appears not to be strong enough,” Merkel said, urging Europeans to “complete the economic and monetary union on a political level.”Hollande insisted that the French could keep some of their cherished national sovereignty but said the current crisis should push Europeans to speed up integration and force a “new start” for European unity.last_img read more

Home Prices and the Middle Class

first_img For the majority of homes, buying is cheaper than renting. But as home prices rise faster than incomes and mortgage rates slowly head upwards, the question of national affordability becomes ever more germane.Compared to the longer-term past, homeownership still looks relatively affordable as home prices remain undervalued and mortgage rates remain near historic lows. However, affordability for the middle class in some areas of the nation is becoming problematic.In a blog post, Trulia chief economist Jed Kolko notes that certain discrepancies do arise, specifically along the coasts, for middle-class homeownership.Kolko explains his methodology of defining what counts as “middle class” and what counts as affordable before breaking down nationwide trends: Affordability is based on whether a home’s monthly payment, which includes mortgage, insurance, and property taxes, was less than 31 percent of the surrounding metro’s median household income. The designation “middle class” is fluid, dependent upon each metro’s local median household income.Kolko found that the middle class is getting priced out of California but finds more success in the Midwest. In fact, in 80 of the 100 largest U.S. metros, most of the homes for sale are within reach of the middle class.In the most affordable housing markets, more than 80 percent of homes are within reach. Akron, Ohio, tops the list at 86 percent of homes affordable for the middle class. “The 10 most affordable markets include eight in (or near) the Midwest, plus the southern markets of Columbia, South Carolina, and Little Rock, Arkansas. Five of the top 10 are in Ohio,” Kolko writes.Indeed, the top three metros for affordability include Akron, Toledo, and Dayton, Ohio, each sporting percentages above 80 percent of homes as affordable for the middle class in May 2014.Seven of the 10 least affordable markets reside in California. Not surprisingly, the rest of the top ten is rounded out by New York City; Fairfield County, Connecticut; and Honolulu, Hawaii. San Francisco remains on top as the least affordable city in the nation, with only 14 percent of homes for sale in San Francisco affordable to the middle class, despite higher median incomes.Education also plays a factor, affecting income, which in turn directly reflects one’s ability to afford a home.”Household income is strongly correlated with education. Median household income is $33,500 for households headed by someone with a high school degree or less, $49,300 with some college or an associate’s degree, $77,500 with a bachelor’s degree, and $100,000 with a graduate degree,” Kolko commented.He notes that the higher the education of a metro’s population, the more homes will be available for purchase with a median income: “Take the Washington, D.C., metro area as an example: for a high-school-or-less household, just 23% of homes for sale are affordable, compared with 75% for a bachelor’s-degree household and 83% for a graduate-degree household.”Furthermore, the supply of available homes matters, with lower affordability markets experiencing a low supply from a lack of new construction, driving prices upward and out of the range of middle class families.For America’s most expensive markets to come down in price, there would have to be a subsequent drop in demand or an increase in construction. Cities like San Francisco, south Florida, and parts of the Northeast are geographically limited by their availability to construct new homes, and thus, are inherently limited in their ability to construct new homes, according to Kolko.Unfortunately, his conclusions aren’t exactly great news for the middle-class family looking to purchase a home in more expensive markets. “In all, today’s unaffordable markets are likely to stay unaffordable. A collapse in demand is nothing to wish for; geographic constraints are nearly impossible to change; and strong political forces make building regulations difficult to relax,” he writes.

Rust Belt Mortgages Are Swimming Underwater

first_img Mortgage Payments Rust Belt Zillow’s Negative Equity Report 2016-06-08 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Market Studies, News It seems homeowners in the Rust Belt region, which stretches from New York through Indiana, have the most to worry about when it comes to their mortgage payments–at least according to Zillow’s Negative Equity Report released this morning.The report, which examines the number of underwater mortgages across the country, found that homeowners in the Rust Belt are much more likely to have underwater mortgages and negative equity than any other area of the country.In total, four of the most underwater markets are located in the Rust Belt region. These include Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis and Cleveland. Other highly underwater U.S. metros include Philadelphia, Atlanta, Phoenix, St. Louis, Baltimore, Orlando, and Las Vegas.Homeowners on the West Coast? They are much less likely to be behind on their mortgages than other U.S. homeowners. In fact, the Bay Area boasts the lowest rates of negative equity among all large American markets. The San Jose and San Francisco metro areas actually have negative equity rates under 5 percent.”When the housing bubble burst, the West Coast had more than its fair share of underwater homeowners,” according to Zillow Chief Economist Dr. Svenja Gudell. “But the strong local economy and job markets have significantly helped these housing markets recover, and several are now more expensive than they were during the housing bubble. Other parts of the country didn’t get those same benefits.”Currently, Chicago has the highest rate of negative equity in the country, replacing Las Vegas, the previously crowned winner. At one point, Chicago has a 41.1-percent rate of negative equity. Though the city’s numbers have improved significantly since then, that improvement is happening at a much slower rate than other areas of the country.“Until market fundamentals improve, homeowners and buyers in these areas will be facing disproportionately higher levels of negative equity as they navigate the housing market,” Gudell said.In total, Zillow’s report found that 12.7 percent of all U.S. homeowners currently have a mortgage in negative equity. That’s down from 31.4 percent in 2012 and 13.1 percent in 2015. June 8, 2016 572 Views center_img Rust Belt Mortgages Are Swimming Underwater Sharelast_img read more

TORONTO — Catherine OHaras beloved Schitts Cre

first_img TORONTO — Catherine O’Hara’s beloved “Schitt’s Creek” character, former soap-star Moira, has inspired many a meme on social media with her outlandish outfits, prima donna behaviour and hilariously dramatic elocution.O’Hara explained the development of the diva in an interview with The Canadian Press. Catherine O’Hara explains the development of a ‘Schitt’s Creek’ diva, Moira Actor Catherine O’Hara of the television show Schitt’s Creek is shown in a handout photo. THE CANADIAN PRESS/HO-CBC-Steve Wilkie MANDATORY CREDIT ON MOIRA’S OUTLOOK ON LIVING IN SCHITT’S CREEK:“Moira is not letting go (of her past life),” she said. “Moira gets involved with (town) things like Jazzagals but not with any kind of agenda. It’s just like, ‘What, you think you can sing? No, no, no.’ Or ‘What? You’re going to direct the play? No, that would be me.’ Or ‘You’re going to run things in town? No, not if I have anything to say about it.’“It’s not with any plan to stay involved, it’s just more out of a desperate sense of competition.” DOES O’HARA SOMETIMES SLIP INTO THE CHARACTER OF MOIRA?“Oh, way too much, but especially if I’m defending her — and I have to defend her quite a bit,” she said with a laugh. ON MOIRA’S OVER-ENUNCIATION AND USE OF ARCHAIC WORDS:“I’ve met people in my life who speak in a way and with an accent that has nothing to do with what you know of their history but you don’t dare question it. It’s like, ‘OK, all right, I guess you’re French now, OK,’” said the Toronto-born Emmy winner and “SCTV” alum, whose films include “Beetlejuice,” “Waiting for Guffman,” “Best in Show” and two “Home Alone” films.“Like any insecure actor … Moira had to believe that she was capable of so much more than just being a soap-opera character, that she has so much more potential. So that sadly comes out in most of her conversations.” by Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 7, 2019 9:26 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email ON MOIRA’S WILD OUTFITS:“Oh my lord, I’ve had the best,” O’Hara said. “They always look wilder when I’m walking the streets of ‘Schitt’s Creek.’ That is the silliest, when we go on location.“But Daniel (Levy) has always said, because we dress this way, you don’t have to verbally remind the audience of our past life. It’s just a great visual reminder of who we were and who, Moira for one, still thinks she still is.”Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Thursday with 10 spots in the knock-out stages still up for grabs Only six teams — Unites States of America Paraguay Iran Brazil France and England — have booked a place in the Round-of-16 stage all six having a 100 percent win record They will be joined by the six second-placed finishers and also the four best third-placed finishers The four best third-place finishers clause means none of the 24 teams are definitively out of the reckoning; every team has a mathematical possibility of qualification Even India who find themselves bottom of Group A without a point can be in the Round-of-16 if they can record their first ever World Cup win and other results go their way As last-chance saloon beckons the teams scrapping to reach the Round-of-16 would not onlyhave to bring their A-game to the table but also keep the calculators handy To make things simpler for the average fan here’s an explainer of the overall qualification criteria and scenariosfor each group: The rankings of teams in each group are determined as: 1 Points obtained in all group matches 2 Goal difference in all group matches 3 Number of goals scored in all group matches If two or more teams are equal on the basis of the above criteria their rankings are then determined as follows: The four best teams among those ranked third will be determined by the following criteria: 1 Points obtained in all group matches 2 Goal difference in all group matches 3 Number of goals scored in all group matches 4 Fair play points 5 Drawing of lots by the FIFA Organising Committee Thus in accordance to the above criteria here’s a group-wise look at the qualification scenarios and what each team needs to do to ensure they are among the final 16: Group A Group A standings after two rounds Last round matches:United States vs Colombia; India vs Ghana United States:The US are assured of a place in the next round and their clash with Colombia will be all about ensuring they top the group A draw will secure top spot for John Hackworth’s side irrespective of the result in the other match A defeat against Colombia will leave the door open for Ghana to join the two teams on six points meaning it will all be down to goal difference But with the US also boasting a healthy goal difference GD of +4 only a heavy defeat against the South Americans or a big win for Ghana will prevent the Americans from topping Group A Colombia:The South Americans need a win to confirm their passage to the next round while a draw will ensure they will finish no lower than third place thus keeping them in contention for a place in the Round of 16 A drawwould most likely be enough to go through as one of the better third-place teams but it will mean Colombia will have to wait till the last game of the group stage to learn their fate A defeat against the group leaders would put their campaign in jeopardy Especially if Ghana also manages to defeat India A win or draw for Ghana would confirma third-place finish for the South Americans but a win for India would bring it all down to goal difference between the three teams Ghana:The Africans head into the final match against Indiaknowing a win would be enough to book a place in the last-16 either as group winners runner-up or as a higher-rankedthird-place team Their situation is similar to Colombia where a draw could eventually prove to be enough but a loss could increase chances of an early exit However their opponents are India considered the weakest team in the group so Ghana have a better chance of qualification than Colombia India:The hosts making their World Cup debut are yet to open their account After defeats in their two matches India have left themselves with all to do against Ghana The Indians face a must-win situation against the Africans and even victory may not be enough to send them through to the next stage Luis Norton de Matos’ side would need to beat Ghana by a margin of two goals to stay alive in the competition at least till the final whistle of the last game of group stages India could confirm qualification as runner-up if they beat Ghana by a three-goal margin and Colombia lose to the US Any other result apart from victory would endIndia’s campaign Group B Group B standings after two rounds Last round matches:New Zealand vs Mali; Paraguay vs Turkey Paraguay:The South Americans sealed qualification with an impressive comeback win over New Zealand in the previous match and will go into the final game looking toseal top spot in the group A win or draw would do the job for them but a defeat could see them slip lower down the table It’s unlikely that Paraguay will finish third in the group giventheir healthy goal difference Mali:The African champions will seal qualification with a win A draw would also do the job thanks to their superior goal difference A defeat could mean them having to qualify as one of the third-placed teams unless they lose heavily So as long as they avoid a heavy defeat against New Zealand Mali have a good chance ofqualification New Zealand:The Kiwisneed a victory to have any chance of qualifying for the knock-out stages A win would most likely be enough to send them through — either as group runner-up or as one of the better third-placed teams Any other result apart from a victory would leave the Kiwis with almost no chance of qualifying Turkey:With a goal difference of -3 Turkey can only qualify if they beat Paraguay in the final game on Thursday Like New Zealand a win may do the trick but any other result would send them packing Group C Group C standings after two rounds Last round matches:Costa Rica vs Iran; Guinea vs Germany Iran:The Asian champions floored Germany in their previousgame and are certain to qualify In alllikelihood owing to their superior goal difference they will do so as group winners As long as they avoid a heavy defeat toCosta Rica in the final game Iran will progress as Group C winners Germany:Germany will have to pick up the pieces from the mauling they received at the hands of Iran and get their act together A win against Guinea will send them through at least as runner-up while a draw could also be enough to at least qualify as one of the better third-placed teams A defeat will mean they are heavily dependenton the other results going their way Costa Rica:Theyneed a win to keep their hopes of qualification alive either as runner-up but more likely as one of the better third-placed teams Any other result would mean they will have a very minor chance of making the cut Guinea:Guinea’s fate is similar to Costa Rica’s They would need to beat the Germans to have any chance with any other result severely damaging their chances of qualification Group D Group D standings after two rounds Last round matches:Spain vs North Korea; Niger vs Brazil Brazil:The South American champions have qualified after recording two wins from their opening two games They now need a point to secure qualification as group winners Defeat though could leave the door open for Nigerand Spain to catch them in the table Defeat against Niger with a win for Spain against North Korea could mean Brazil will have to settle for second spot But the ‘Samba Boys’ are unlikely to slipbeyond the second spot even if they lose to Niger Spain:Thanks to their superior goal difference a draw against North Korea could be enough for the European champions to qualify at least as a third-placed team in case Niger upsets Brazil A defeat would leave them in a spot of bother but their goal difference could again work in their favour So Spain have to avoid a heavy defeat to ensure progression A win would secure second spot for them Niger:Niger would need to upset the mighty Brazil to harbour hopes of qualification They would need to get something out of their final match sincetheir inferior goal difference could prove to be their undoing in a scrap amongthird-placed teams A win would guarantee them a place in the next round North Korea:The Asians find themselves with a mountain to climb in the final game They would need to beat Spain to have any say in qualification matters They would need a big win over the European champions to have a realistic chance of making the cut for the last-16 Any other result apart from a win would spell the end of their campaign Group E Group E standings after tworounds Last round matches:France vs Honduras; Japan vs New Caledonia France: Les Bluesare through to the next round after maintaining a hundred percent record in thegroupso far Their goal difference of +7 means that even defeat against Honduras may keep them on top spot if Japan fail to do what other teams in the group have so efficiently done so far — smash a handful of goals past New Caledonia So France would be looking for at least a draw against Honduras to secure their passage to the next round as group winners Japan:A point would secure qualification for Japan thanks to their healthy goal difference but winning the game against New Caledonia shouldn’t be a major problem for Japan who could seal second spot with three points Even in the case of an unlikely defeat Japan would progress thanks to their superior goal difference either as runners-up if France beat Honduras or as a better third-place team if Honduras nick a point or beat France Honduras:They did well to repair the damage of a 6-1 defeat to Japan with a 5-0 win over New Caledonia As things stand Honduras is the best third-placed team in the tournament But they’re facing a tough last-round match against France and itwould be a big challenge to maintain this position Awin would help them qualify but even a draw could be enough considering their goal difference New Caledonia:Although the Oceanian side remains in contention on paper there is virtually no chance of them making the next round if their performances in the first two matchesare anything to go by Even a win over Japan in the final game may not be enoughthanks to a appalling goal difference of -11 as things stand Group F Group F standings after two rounds Last round matches:England vs Iraq; Mexico vs Chile England: The ‘Young Lions’ need a point to secure top-place finish from Group F A defeat to Iraq in the final game would mean they would have to surrender top spot to the Asians Iraq:With four points on the board Iraqhave all but qualified for the Round-of-16 as they would at least be among the better third-placed teams even if theylose to England in the final match A draw would send them through as runners-up irrespective of the other result A victory would help them leapfrog England and enter knock-out stages as group winners Mexico:Mexico need a win against Chile to advance to the latter stages of the competition A draw or a defeat would leave them with a very minor chance of making the cut Chile:The runners-up of the South American U-17 championships find themselves in a tight spot Only a win would do it for them to have any chance of progression But with a goal difference of -7 Chile would need a big win over Mexico in the final game and looking at their current form it’s looking unlikelythey are unlikely to lie if there is no

to Van Basten’s proposal to introduce a new orange-card sanction that sees players temporarily removed from the pitch for up to 10 minutes But the offside law should be sacrosanct as removing it would change the dynamic of the game according to Wenger “Offside is what makes the team be together” the Frenchman said “It’s a big quality of a team sport It’s an intelligent rule as well where you can use your intelligence It’s very important to keep that in the game “Overall football improves as well People say it’s too tight too compact but the evolution of the game has always been like that

goal and in front of the other goal with space on the pitch and no play Just to wait until the ball arrives in the box” In his days as a defender West Ham manager Slaven Bilic would not have liked the
