FEMA teams in Vermont to assess flood damage

first_imgGovernor Peter Shumlin announced today that Preliminary Damage Assessment teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are in Vermont this week to help determine if the state qualifies for federal disaster assistance for individuals and families affected by the flooding.  The teams will be in the field on Wednesday to visit many homes that have reported damage to Vermont 211.  The Governor urged anyone who has suffered damage to their home to call 211 to report those problems. ‘We need a reliable estimate of individual damage,’ Gov. Shumlin said. ‘The state needs to show significant damage to primary residences to qualify for an Individual Assistance declaration to help homeowners who suffered damage by the floods of the past month.’ The FEMA teams assessing public infrastructure damage for a possible Public Assistance declaration have completed their work and found more than $3 million in damages statewide.  Those teams have also found that the counties of Addison, Chittenden, Essex, Franklin, Grand Isle, Lamoille, Orleans, and Washington have shown enough damage to qualify for a disaster declaration. ‘We have shown significant public infrastructure damage and I’m confident we will be granted federal funds to help rebuild roads, bridges, and other public property,’ Gov. Shumlin said.  ‘Now we need to show private property damage.  I encourage everyone who suffered flood damage to their homes to call 2-1-1 so FEMA can get an accurate picture of damages.’ The process of obtaining an Individual Assistance declaration is just beginning and will likely take time as many homes are still under water.  Vermont must show a significant impact from the flooding to be considered. The Small Business Administration will also be in the field on Wednesday.  The SBA could offer low-interest loans to homeowners, renters and businesses damaged by the flooding.  If you own a small business injured by the floods in the form of physical damage or lost business please call your city or town to report that damage. Agricultural operators who suffered damage to their farms should contact the Vermont Agency of Agriculture at sends e-mail).last_img read more

Local council rejects Berkshire claims over failed scheme merger

first_imgHowever, in December, while committee members for the RBWM’s Berkshire Pension Fund approved extensive collaboration with the other two schemes, committees at Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire rejected the merger.They said no decision could be made until a central government consultation on investment strategies for the 89 local government pension schemes (LGPS) in England and Wales was complete.The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) is currently considering consultation responses on whether to mandate LGPS funds to invest all listed assets passively and via a collective vehicle. However, the RBWM dismissed this reasoning and accused the councils of abandoning the merger after holding separate discussions with Northamptonshire.In December 2014, the  Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire councils announced a Tri-County Council Alliance, with the view to working together across a range of issues.In response to the RBWM’s claims, Neil Gibson, strategic director at Buckinghamshire, said: “Establishing the Tri-County Council Alliance and the formal decisions both ourselves and Oxfordshire made on pension fund collaboration with the RBWM were completely unrelated.“The focus of the combined authority alliance is to unlock new opportunities for economic development across the three county areas and not on sharing or merging services.”Oxfordshire also said it held no discussions with the Northamptonshire pension fund on collaborations or mergers.When deciding not to continue with the RBWM, both Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire said the DCLG consultation decision would materially impact the cost/benefit analysis undertaken on the merger.However, Buckinghamshire also said the investment strategy between its £1.8bn (€2.4bn) pension fund and the £1.6bn Berkshire Pension Fund differed too greatly to merge, and the pensions committee agreed to investigate the possibility of collaboration with Oxfordshire alone.The £1.5bn Oxfordshire Pension Fund’s committee similarly agreed to consider collaboration with “more suitable” pension funds.A note explaining the failed merger published by Nick Greenwood, pension fund manager at the RBWM, said no mention of the Tri-County Council Alliance was made at previous meetings between the three funds.“Consequently, it is clear both councils [Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire] have no intention to collaborate with the RBWM on managing pension funds,” he said. Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC) has dismissed claims that a proposed pension scheme merger failed because it sought to collaborate with another council.The reaction comes after talks between the pension schemes for the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (RBWM), Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire County Council fell through at the final hurdle, after months of working to merge investment management and administration activities.The RBWM said negotiations failed due to on-going discussions between Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire County Council.The schemes began talks 18 months ago to cut costs and increase efficiencies, with all three councils agreeing that their investment and liability profiles matched to make a merger feasible.last_img read more

Anthony D. Prickel

first_imgAnthony D. Prickel, age 76 of Batesville, died Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati.  Born September 19, 1940 in Batesville, he is the son of Alvina (Nee: Wallpe) and Alphons Prickel.  He married Joyce Gindling May 5, 1962 at St. Louis Church and she preceded him in death January 17, 2002.  Tony worked as an inspector for Cummins Engines in Columbus for 33 years before retiring in 1995.  He was a member of the Batesville Knights of Columbus Council #1461 and the Batesville Eagles Aerie #1130.For those who knew Tony, he had two passions.  To say he was a huge Notre Dame fan would be an understatement.  A bigger fan would be harder to find.  A close second was his love of golf.  He played as often as he could.  He also followed the Reds and was a casual Bengals fan.  In his earlier years he enjoyed rabbit and squirrel hunting and in later years Tony became an avid Solo player.  He would often stop at the Knights hall mid afternoon to sit in on a game or two.He is survived by his daughter Gayla Prickel of Greensburg; sons Scott and Chris Prickel, both of Batesville; his longtime companion Brenda Gridley; sisters Emma and Katie Prickel, both of Batesville; brother Larry Prickel of Napoleon and seven grandchildren.  In addition to his wife and parents, he is also preceded in death by sister Pauline Vankirk and brothers Alvin (Buster) and Paul (Pete) Prickel.Visitation is Friday, September 15th from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home.  Funeral services are 10 a.m. Saturday, September 16th at St. Louis Church with Rev. Stan Pondo officiating.  The family encourages everyone to wear their favorite Fighting Irish attire to the visitation and funeral.  Burial will follow in the church cemetery.  The family requests memorials to the Batesville Knights of Columbus or Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.last_img read more

UP govt announces hefty cash awards for Olympic medallists

first_imgGreater Noida: Uttar Pradesh Sports Minister Chetan Chauhan on Thursday announced his government’s decision to give away hefty cash awards to Olympic medallists, that will see the winners getting richer by Rs 6 crore while the silver and bronze medallists will bag a purse of Rs 4 crore and Rs 2 crore, respectively.”Our government has decided to give Rs 50 lakh to gold, Rs 30 lakh to silver, and Rs 20 lakh to bronze medallists of Asian and CWG medal winners. On October 2, our Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will felicitate all the medal winners in Lucknow,” he added.Besides the medal winners, a sum of Rs 5 lakh will be given to each participating athlete in the Asian Games and CWG.Chauhan said the government has taken this decision to uplift the conditions of sports and sportspersons in the state, from where 11 out of 44 athletes have returned with medals from the recently-held Asian Games.”We have taken so many decisions including giving Rs 6 crore to Olympic gold medallists. We know that UP has so much talent and the increased prize money will motivate them to perform at the highest level,” Chauhan said during the jersey unveiling ceremony of Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) franchisee — UP Yoddha.”In the recently-concluded Asian Games, 44 players from UP had participated and won 11 medals. Before that UP athletes won 7 medals in CWG. Our players are performing well and it’s our duty to help them financially.””This is probably the first time that a government will give some money to participating athletes. All athletes will be benefited by this decision and it will help uplift the financial condition of athletes residing in UP,” he said.”UP government has also decided to give financial help to retired sportspersons. All the athletes who won Arjuna, Dronacharya and Rani Jhansi awards will get Rs 20,000 per month pension.”We cannot forget those who have brought laurels for the country and state. Being a sportsperson I know what kind of difficulties they had faced. Our main aim is to promote sports culture in UP and these decisions will certainly help,” he added.Chauhan also promised jobs to the medallists from the state, besides allowing them four years to complete their graduation in order to be eligible for Class 2 level jobs.”We have decided that all the medal winner athletes will get class 2 level job in 11 departments of the government. Those who have not done graduation will get four years to get the graduation degree.”Since minimum qualification for class 2 officer is graduation we have decided to give athletes four years to get the graduation degree,” he said.Chauhan said that due to the policy of the state government, the players are coming back to the state.”We have given job to Sudha Singh. Now she is residing in Mumbai but after getting all the support from our govt, she wants to come back to Lucknow. In a way, our policies enable reverse migration. Earlier athletes were leaving the state due to lack of facilities,” Chauhan said.Regarding the growing popularity of kabaddi, he said, “Kabaddi is a game that is played all the time in childhood and with the start of the Pro Kabaddi League, the game is getting corporate backing. Now the audience is also involved.” IANSlast_img read more

Diversity initiative tackles student hunger

first_imgPhoto from USC Dornsife websiteHelping hand · Natalie Reyes, a senior majoring in sociology and law, history, and culture helps lead the Virtual Food Pantry.Though most USC students take full advantage of meal plans and on-campus dining options, some face a daily struggle to put food on the table. In an effort to combat food insecurity at USC, the Dornsife College Office of Diversity and Strategic Initiatives partnered with Campus Activities to support these students through the Virtual Food Pantry. Food insecurity can occur for a variety of reasons, but the high cost of living in Los Angeles can make it particularly difficult for low-income USC students. The Pantry provides $25 Ralph’s gift cards for students to use at their own discretion, offers services to help students with budgeting tools and connects them with financial aid representatives. Mary Ho, the assistant vice dean of Diversity and Strategic Initiatives, said the team behind the Virtual Food Pantry collects data on students to understand how food insecurity negatively affects them. “We have seen the impact,” Ho said. “The students who have come to me have expressed gratitude. So we better understand that this does impact them negatively when they don’t have food.” The Food Pantry initiative began with a donation from Leo and Dorothy Braudy, who worked with Dornsife Diversity Director George Sanchez to help underprivileged students.Kelly Sanchez, a senior majoring in NGOs and social change, helps to run the pantry. She said that the pantry “makes USC more of a home,” providing a sense of security that some students might not be experiencing in their own homes.“It’s hard enough being a college student in the first place —managing finances, managing life and also trying to decide who you are trying to be,” Sanchez said. “For someone that really just has a blank slate, food insecurity is a very common problem.” Savannah Robinson, who serves as the social media coordinator for the project, added that food insecurity is “more widespread than we think.” “One of my close friends is someone who is extremely money conscious. She was so excited when she heard about this food pantry,” Robinson said. Natalie Reyes, a senior majoring in sociology and law, history and culture, personally dealt with food insecurity during her sophomore year of college. Now in a different financial position and as one of the leading members of this initiative, she is able to use her own experience to help in the effort. “I knew all of my friends were struggling, and it was just something we knew that was going on but we didn’t know there was someone we could talk to for help,” Reyes said.last_img read more

Ryan Norton thrives in simplified role of kickoff specialist

first_imgWhen Syracuse hosted Wake Forest on Sept. 12, Syracuse had seven kickoffs. Five of them were too deep in the end zone for the Demon Deacons to attempt a return. Of the first 33 kickoffs Norton had this season, 17 — more than half — went for touchbacks.“It’s kind of more natural for me to do kickoffs,” Norton said. “Since I started kicking when I was younger, (kickoffs) came more easily for me.”Norton, a senior who is 17-of-38 on touchbacks this season, has traded spots as a kickoff specialist and a field goal specialist during his time at Syracuse. When incumbent kicker Ross Krautman missed most of the 2013 season, Norton made 10 of his 15 field goal attempts at a position he didn’t expect to compete in. He came in as the field goal starter in 2014 before being unseated by freshman kicker Cole Murphy four games in.Now, Norton is back focusing solely on the position he feels most comfortable with. His leg is the strongest on the team but far from the most accurate. It’s what’s kept him from holding the field goal job down, but what’s also allowed him to thrive this season as a reliable kickoff specialist.“Ryan came in here with a strong leg, and he knew that there was a good chance that that could be his role coming into the season,” special teams coordinator Tim Daoust said. “That’s what he had done for us in the past and he’s back to his form from a couple years ago.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDaoust said Norton and Murphy came into training camp in competition for both facets of the kicking game, and the two separated from each other at each position. Still, they both work on the other’s craft at every practice.Murphy said the two critique each other at the other’s position. While the primary focus, Murphy said, is improving his own game, the two also make an effort to give each other pointers.“There’s a lot of the same things over and over,” Murphy said. “A lot of it’s mainly just keep your eyes back, swing straight through the ball, swing your target. Attack your plant foot. Don’t swing around, things like that. It’s little things.”In the training room, Norton said sometimes there are things he wants to fix or areas he wants to get stronger in. While others might be lifting weights, Norton will be doing one-legged squats, jumping, or working on other explosive leg movements. It’s important to have a strong core and lower body if you’re a kicker, Murphy said.Norton visualizes his kicks before they come. He tells himself that he knows he can do it. It’s what he works on all week for.When Syracuse played Pittsburgh on Saturday, Norton was instructed to kick it short with 25 seconds left in the first half. He didn’t place the ball where he wanted, and was eventually called for a late hit on a tackle to end the play.“You kick yourself,” Norton said of the mistake that eventually cost SU three points in a 23-20 loss.In his job, there’s only so many chances to execute. And in his job, there’s only so many definitions of success. For almost all of 2015, Norton has done the job that’s been asked of him.“At this level, everybody’s got a guy back there that can be a game changer,” Daoust said. “He’s at a much higher percentage than he’s had in the past … I know he’s doing a nice job with that.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 30, 2015 at 1:49 pm Contact Sam: | @SamBlum3last_img read more

FIFA Considering Allowing Players to Represent More than One Country

first_img​FIFA is considering a rule change that would allow players to suit up for more the one country.Current stipulation makes it so that a player who has played one competitive fixture for a nation cannot switch international allegiances.But Cape Verde’s football federation has requested that the governing body loosen the sanctions so that a move can still be made after one or two matches.Head of FIFA’s Stakeholders’ Committee, Victor Montagliani, has revealed that FIFA is looking into implementing pertinent changes without compromising the integrity of the sport. “There are so many issues that have popped up,” he said. “The world is changing.”“Immigration is changing. There are nationality issues that pop up all over the world – in Africa, (and) there are issues in Asia and CONCACAF.“So it’s a good time to have a look at this and see if there are solutions without hurting the integrity of the game.”Montagliani also reported that FIFA is also considering increasing the length of time after which a player can represent a country if that player has no blood connection.As things stand, foreign players must live and play in a country for five years before being allowed to represent that country in international competition if they so desire.A compensation scheme is also being looked into in order to tackle potential issues regarding players training and playing for a country at youth level then switching to another.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Dodgers get a measly two hits in 2-1 loss to White Sox

first_imgLeft-hander John Danks, who entered with a 3-5 record and an ERA of 4.66, picked up his fourth victory. He allowed just two hits — both by Dee Gordon — and one run while striking out five. He walked three and hit Scott Van Slyke twice.The Dodgers, who had just the two hits, got their only run in the eighth inning when Hanley Ramirez grounded into a forceout that brought home Gordon, who had hit a one-out double.Ronald Belisario — throwing smoke — closed out the game for the White Sox for the second consecutive night by pitching a 1-2-3 ninth inning. It was his fifth save.Prior to the game, Mattingly emphasized that his team’s struggles are not the result of one or two players failing to play up to their potential. It’s about the team not playing as a unit.Mattingly brought former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda into the conversation. “Tommy says it all the time,” Mattingly said. “And it seems corny at times, but he says, ‘Hey, we’ve all gotta get on one end of the rope and pull.’ And you know what? As many times as you’ve heard Tommy say it, it’s absolutely true.”Afterward, Mattingly was an upset man.“Josh was good, the bullpen threw the ball good,” Mattingly said. “Yeah, obviously, Danks was that good tonight. He was just better than us tonight. I just thought he was better than us. He was better than us tonight. I really think you should talk to them.“I’m tired of answering the questions, honestly. Home, away, whatever, I don’t know. It’s just being, basically, (expletive). We’re just not that good.”When a reporter asked Mattingly about the slump Adrian Gonzalez is in — he went 0 for 4 in the cleanup spot — Mattingly was not happy.“Seriously, one thing, and we’re going to look at one thing,” he said, frustrated. “I don’t have any problems with Adrian at all, to be honest with you.”A lifetime .293 hitter, Gonzalez is batting .259 and has four hits in his last 22 at-bats.Indeed, frustration has set in as the Dodgers are now just one game over .500 and have lost three of four.Asked what his team needs to do to turn it around, Mattingly said, “We need to win.”Catcher Drew Butera wore a bummed-out look.“Yeah, it’s frustrating,” Butera said. “We got the loss. He (Beckett) pitched real well, the bullpen pitched real well. It’s frustrating we couldn’t give him a little help.” Beckett was asked what he thought about his manager’s analogy about everyone tugging on the end of the rope.“I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t get too caught up in that stuff. My job here is to make quality pitches and execute.”On the plus side, the Dodgers are playing well defensively. They had one error Wednesday, the only one in the three-game series. Gordon has noticed.“I think we’re playing better defense,” he said. “We’ve been on page on the defensive side of the ball. We’ve been playing better defensively.”The White Sox (31-30) got on the board in the top of the third when Garcia smacked a home run over the center-field fence on the first pitch from Beckett. Garcia came in with just 46 at-bats, one RBI and no major-league home runs.An inning later, Dunn took Beckett deep over the right-field wall for his ninth home run of the season and a 2-0 Chicago lead. The Dodgers had a chance to score in the bottom of the fourth. With one out and Gonzalez on second via an error and Van Slyke at first on a walk, Justin Turner came to bat. He hit a ground ball to second baseman Gordon Beckham, who threw out Turner at first after missing a tag on Van Slyke. A rundown ensued with the ball eventually being thrown to third base to try and get Gonzalez, who had rounded the bag.Gonzalez was ruled safe, and Van Slyke had gotten to second. But White Sox manager Robin Ventura asked for a review, and Gonzalez was subsequently called out to end the inning.The fifth inning might have brought a first. The White Sox had runners at the corners with one out. Dunn was issued what appeared to be a walk to load the bases. But Mattingly came out to talk to the umpires, apparently telling that it was only a 3-2 count.Umpires then instituted a crew review and Mattingly was right. Dunn came back to the plate and was struck out by Beckett on a slow curve. Beckett got out of the inning when Alexei Ramirez hit into a force play.The Dodgers now head to Colorado to begin a three-game series Friday. Then they will play four at Cincinnati starting Monday.

‘How many have to die?’: Neville voices fears over Premier League plans

first_imgThe country is on lockdown until at least May 7, but government officials have spoken in positive terms about a potential return for football if the virus is under control.– ‘No football for months’ –Germany’s sports ministers have said the Bundesliga could return next month but Dutch football chiefs have called an end to the Eredivisie season and the Belgian campaign is in the balance.French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said football would not return in his country until at least September.In the Premier League, full training is reportedly slated for mid-May, with the plan to be discussed at a meeting of stakeholders on Friday.However, Neville is concerned that the Premier League’s desire to conclude the campaign is being driven by financial motives, with the English top flight facing a huge hit if the 92 remaining fixtures are not played.The former England international said if it were a non-economic decision there would be no football for months but he acknowledged that players at lower levels would want to play because the alternative was “bad”.“(A total of) 1,400 players are out of contract in three months so they’ll need football to resume so their livelihoods can continue,” he said.“There’s huge economic loss. It clouds people’s minds in terms of the risk that they’re willing to take.”Share on: WhatsApp Gary Neville fears Premier League players will be put at risk if matches resumeLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Gary Neville fears Premier League players’ lives will be put at risk if football is rushed back too soon after the coronavirus-enforced lockdown in Britain.Premier League chiefs are aiming for a return to action in June and several clubs opened their training grounds to players this week as they work on “Project Restart”.The English top flight is understood to be aiming to run a huge testing operation to keep footballers safe, with reports of 26,000 tests being lined up for players and staff.But FIFA’s medical chief Michel D’Hooghe said on Tuesday that football should not be played until September and former Manchester United defender Neville is worried that Premier League stars will be put in danger by the rush to return.“The FIFA medical officer said that football should not take place before September. I think if it was a non-economic decision there would be no football for months,” Neville told the Sky Sports Football Show on Wednesday.“People are now assessing risk. How many people have to die playing football in the Premier League before it becomes unpalatable? One? One player? One member of staff goes into intensive care? What risk do we have to take? The discussion is purely economic.”Neville voiced his particular concerns over the risk to players with existing medical conditions.“If health comes first, there is only one outcome at this moment in time. How many players have got asthma? How many players have diabetes?“Have they assessed all of these things and are they willing to put those people at risk?”The UK is among the worst-hit countries in the global COVID-19 pandemic, with more than 21,000 deaths so far.last_img read more

British title for England’s Julie Brown

first_img England’s Julie Brown kept her nerve with pars over the last five holes to win the British senior women’s championship at Prestatyn Golf Club, Wales.“I am just so pleased,” said Brown, who won by three shots. “I really wanted to win.”She finished on three-over par with rounds of 72 75 78 and won by three strokes from Irish senior champion Gertie McMullen (The Island). Jane Rees (Minchinhampton), winner of the Welsh seniors, made ground on both the leaders with a closing 75 to finish third on 229.It’s the latest success in a short but sparkling career in senior ranks. Brown made her debut in 2014, winning the English senior championship and helping England to become European champions and winners of the senior women’s Home Internationals.Brown, from Trentham in Staffordshire, was inspired to her British success when fellow England team member Cath Rawthore won last year. She was helped when she caddied for her daughter at last year’s Welsh open stroke play at Prestatyn and got to know the course. And she was supported by her partner, Tony Coleman, on the bag – particularly in the tricky windy conditions of the last day.“He clubbed me really well, especially on the 14th. If I had gone my choice I would have been one club out and out of position. He convinced me to hit one more and it paid off.”Brown held a two-stroke lead over McMullen going into the final round but her advantage was threatened when she had a double bogey six at the fifth and shed another shot at the next. Meanwhile McMullen had bogeyed the second but birdied the fourth and fifth.But the Irish champion let the initiative pass back to Brown when she had a bogey at the sixth and a triple bogey seven at the next. McMullen birdied the ninth, but, out in 39, she had gained only one shot on the leader.Brown’s only birdie came at the 12th and, after bogeying the 13th, she reeled off a string of five pars to consolidate her winning position. Crucially she got up and down for par on the 15th to keep her run going. “It was an almost impossible chip and had double bogey written all over it. I just looked at it, didn’t think too much about it but saw what I needed to do.“I played the shot and holed the putt – and that’s what won it for me. Gertie birdied that hole, so it would have been a massive swing.”Brown is no strange to success. She was an England international before turning professional and playing on the Ladies European Tour for seven years, where won the German Open. She returned to the amateur ranks in 2006 and has since captained several England girls’ teams, won the Staffordshire championship twice – making four titles in total – and been Midlands North ladies’ champion.Defending champion Catherine Rawthore (Sale) finished tied 11th on 233, saving her best to last with a 75 in the third round. Laura Webb (East Berkshire), Caroline Berry (Bromborough) and Sue Dye (Cheshire) all won age group categories.• Brown’s daughter, Emily Coleman, completed a winning double for the family when she won her first event on the US women’s college circuit as a student at Western Texas CollegeClick here for more information about the championship.Image courtesy LGU 18 Sep 2015 British title for England’s Julie Brown last_img read more

Foul Tip…No Magic ‘Wandy’

first_imgAubrey Bruce & Manny Sanguillen at PNC Park April 3 (Courier Photo/Julio Torres)On Thursday at PNC Park the Pirates were poised to take a 3-0 series from the Chicago Cubs. Something magical happened, at least for the Cubs. Unfortunately for the Pirates, Chicago did not believe those illusions or any other magic tricks that the Pirates pulled out could beat them, three times in a row.On opening day, which happened to be first day of the first Pirates series of 2014, the Pirates squeezed out a victory in the bottom of the tenth inning and after a day of rest,  the Buc’s labored for 16 innings well into the am in what eventually ended up as a 4-3 Pittsburgh victory. There have been more innings played in Pittsburgh but the 5-hour, 55-minute slugfest set the mark for the longest Major League Baseball game ever played in Pittsburgh.Pirates’ starter Wandy Rodriguez on the mound at PNC Park April 3 (Courier Photo/Julio Torres)The alchemy of the team was interrupted with reality when Wandy Rodriguez took the mound for the Pirates after the marathon game the night before.  The Cubs got to Rodriguez and lead 1-0 after the first and scored two additional runs to lead 3-0 before the Pirates finally got on the board scoring 2 runs in the bottom of the seventh.  Cubs manager Rick Renteria seemed to take a deep breath as his squad gave him his first 2014 regular season win. Renteria said; “I didn’t think it was going to be such a relief but it is quite a relief. It’s nice to win. These games were tough. Taking the last one was very gratifying.”Although the Cubs got to Rodriguez early, Pirates skipper Clint Hurdle still expressed confidence in his pitcher after a 10 month layoff. Hurdle said that; “(Rodriguez) finished up very efficiently, very strong, a very good outing. [This was] a big confidence boost for him and a momentum builder.”Rodriguez was relieved in the top of the seventh by Edison Volquez. Volquez who normally would be a starter filled a relief role in light of the limited number of pitchers available because of the lengthy game played the night before.The one bright spot of the day was the visit to the press box by former Pirate Manny Sanguillen, accompanied by his perpetuel trademark smile. Sanguillen is considered by many as one of the best, if not the greatest catcher in the team’s history.The honeymoon is over because no team can go an entire season without losing a game.  There is no magic wand to wave to insure a victory.  The Pirates will not sneak up on anyone this season.  They had better be ready because the remainder of the MLB will certainly be ready for them.Aubrey Bruce is the Senior Sports Columnist for the New Pittsburgh Courier.  He can be reached at: or 412.583.6741last_img read more

Neptunes take positive approach to 2016 Kootenay Summer Swim Association Season

first_imgIt hasn’t been easy running a summer swim program in Nelson during the past few years.Constant upgrades to the Nelson and District Aquatic Centre has forced the Nelson Neptunes to pack their bags for alternate pools to keep the program alive.This season, the Neptunes have adopted the slogan of “Have goggles will travel” as the team builds for the upcoming 2016 Kootenay Summer Swim Association Season.”Due to the renovation closure of their home pool in Nelson for the entire competitive season, the Neptunes will be swimming around the region,” said Chad Badry of the Neptunes executive on the eve of the season opening day for the Heritage City club, May 1.Badry said the Neptunes will start the season swimming five times a week at the Castlegar Aquatic Centre for the month of May and then move their home base to the Salmo outdoor pool for June, July and August.”For the second time in history that anyone on the team can recall, a swim meet will be held in Salmo at the end of June,” Badry said. “This will bring hundreds of athletes and families to Salmo and area.”Badry said the Neptunes have dipped into his graduation list to hire Nialan Collier as team skipper.Joining Collier is long time Neptune Sage Cowan for the first part of the summer until returning head coach Cynthia Pfeiffer joins the team later in the season.Badry said the three Neptunes recently completed their level 1 National Coaching Certification which will be a great contribution to the swim coaching and succession planning for the team.This year, the Neptunes are offering a new program in Salmo for the month of June called Introduction to Competitive Swimming.Swimmers who want to give speed swimming a try can practice with the team with reduced commitment and cost.Then they can take part in the swim meet in Salmo at the end of the month. Badry said Neptunes are hopeful that the prospect of a season like no other will make a difference in the enrolment numbers.Coaching staff is planning plenty of dryland training and a few open water swims in Nelson as well to help reduce the travel.Badry said last year these events included a game of quidditch, hikes up Pulpit Rock, early morning cardio, and some carefully chaperoned open water swims from Lakeside Park.For more information or to register a swimmer, go to read more

Inclan, Northview lead Masters contingent

first_imgThe Vikings qualified more wrestlers than any school in the San Gabriel Valley and had five Eastern Division champions last Saturday at La Quinta High. Inclan, a two-time CIF champion, started the season at 160 pounds, but dropped to 152 to make Northview a more lethal squad. He’s 41-2. “I am peaking at the very best time of the year and working really hard with my teammates,” Inclan said. “I have the best people possible to go against every day at practice.” Steven Salinas (103), P.J. Martinez (112), Dennis Rodriguez (125) and Steven DeLaFuente (140) all won championships for the Vikings. Martinez won his second CIF crown Saturday and DeLaFuente and Inclan were named lower and upper weight MVPs, respectively. “Mentally all are kids are fresh,” Northview coach Bobby Bellamy said. “Physically, at this time of the year, the kids everywhere are dinged up, but they’re ready to go.” “This weekend all comes down to who wants it the most.” Nick Inclan leads a cast of 11 Northview High School wrestlers into the two-day CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet at Carter High in Rialto beginning today. The top eight wrestlers from each weight class qualify for the State Meet, March 2-3 at the Rabobank Arena . center_img in Bakersfield Thomas Williams (112) and Jonathan Aguirre (145) are among the five South Hills wrestlers vying for a spot at the State Meet. Williams (42-1), ranked No. 1 in the state at 112, dropped a 4-2 decision to West Covina’s Chris Armendariz in the Coastal Division semifinals, but feels the loss will serve as motivation. “I am fine mentally and I will be ready to go,” Williams said. “I am going to learn from my mistakes and move forward.” Sal Castillo (140) and Josh Pearson (189) have realistic chances of qualifying for State. George Munoz won the Masters 152-pound class last year and is again going in as an underdog for West Covina. The Bulldogs senior finished fourth last Saturday at the CIF Coastal Division finals in Huntington Beach and is ready to redeem himself. “I am very hungry right now,” Munoz said. “I started training Sunday for this weekend and expect to do well.” Munoz has one of the toughest draws in the area and will need to be at his best to advance. The Bulldogs have the second most entrants from the area with eight wrestlers. Taylor Louie (103), Armendariz (112) A.J. Guardado (135) and Munoz are expected to advance. Diamond Bar’s Marcus Johnson (215) may have flown under everyone’s radar, but that’s about to change. Johnson is 42-0 and won his first CIF title at the Southern Division championship at Chino Hills. “I am expecting to win Masters and do well at State, but I am not taking anything for granted,” Johnson said. “I am working hard every day to try and limit any mistakes in my mechanics.” Johnson’s teammate, Garrett Jones, will compete in the 189-pound division. Sierra Vista’s Adrian Gonzales (41-1) lost Saturday in the finals of the 152-pound division, but with that behind him, he is set to battle in possibly the toughest weight class in the area. Along with Inclan and Munoz, Gonzales looks to take the top spot and says he’s learned from his lone defeat this season. “I put Saturday behind me and I like my chances. I am really focused for this weekend and think I’ve corrected anything that needed to fixed,” Gonzales said. Angel Garcia, San Dimas’ 119-pound junior standout, won his third CIF title in as many years last Saturday at La Quinta. Garcia (45-3) has won titles at 103, 112 and now 119 and has his eyes set on a Masters title and a run at State. “I am going in this to win it, but I’ve had my mind on State all year,” Garcia said. “I am a lot more experienced this time around and have been working on minimizing mistakes.” Garcia has yet to place at State, but expects that to change next weekend in Bakersfield. Taylor Louie (103) might be the least recognized standout for West Covina, but at 36-1, he is primed and ready for a run at State. The senior’s lone loss was by disqualification and his coaches believe he’s possibly the most underrated wrestler in the area. “I’ve had one goal all year and that’s to be a state champion,” Louie said. “To be a state champ, you have to beat everybody and I am hoping to do that at Masters.” Bishop Amat will send two CIF Coastal Division champions, Steven Espindola (112) and Andrew Ortega (119), along with teammates Andrew Mascarenas (145), Andrew Hernandez (189) and Julian Silva (215) to the meet. West Covina coach Donnie Stephens is cautiously optimistic about the number of Bulldogs that will qualify for State. “When you get to Masters, anything can happen,” Stephens said. “I know our guys are ready mentally and physically.” The Bulldogs are a senior-led team and experience won’t be an issue this weekend. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Leicester name Claude Puel as new manager

first_img0Shares0000New Leicester manager Claude Puel, 56, a former manager of Monaco, Lyon and Southampton, will take charge of his first game on Sunday when the Foxes host Everton at the King Power Stadium © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 25 – Former Premier League champions Leicester City on Wednesday named ex-Southampton boss Claude Puel as their new manager following the sacking of Craig Shakespeare last week.Leicester won the title under Claudio Ranieri in 2015-16 but parted company with the Italian in February and despite a good recovery under Shakespeare at the end of last season, they are only a point above the relegation places this term. Puel, 56, also a former manager of Monaco, Lyon and Nice in France, will take charge of his first game on Sunday when the Foxes host Everton at the King Power Stadium.“When we began the process of identifying a new manager, the board quickly established the profile of candidate we needed to take the club forward and Claude Puel was a perfect fit,” said Leicester City vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha.“Upon meeting Claude, his attention to detail, knowledge of our squad, understanding of our potential and his vision to help us realise it were extremely impressive.“He quickly emerged as the outstanding candidate and I am delighted we will have the opportunity to reinforce our long-term vision, aided significantly by his expertise.”The Frenchman, who was dismissed by Southampton in June after just one season in charge despite finishing eighth in the Premier League, said it was a “great privilege” to become the new Leicester manager.“The opportunity to help the club build on its remarkable recent achievements is a truly exciting one and I’m looking forward to working with the owners, players, staff and supporters to deliver further lasting success,” he said.Puel also has European pedigree, steering Lyon into the Champions League finals semi-finals in 2010 — masterminding a 2-1 aggregate win over Real Madrid along the way.Leicester shocked the football world two seasons ago by seeing off the Premier League powerhouses to secure the title, with the likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez stealing the headlines.But despite reaching the Champions League quarter-finals last year, Leicester struggled in the league until a late-season flourish lifted them to 12th in the table.This season has been another struggle, with just two wins in their first nine fixtures, although they eased the pressure at the weekend with a 2-1 victory at Swansea City, which lifted them to 14th in the table.Shakespeare, 53, was promoted from his role as assistant coach on an interim basis following the shock dismissal of Ranieri and in June he was handed a three-year contract.Puel will be supported by Michael Appleton, who retains his role as assistant manager.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Zidane warns Real against Champions League complacency ahead of Juve test

first_imgThe result saw Real drop to fourth place in La Liga behind Valencia, who beat Espanyol 1-0 later in the day.Ronaldo was taken off shortly after the hour-mark at the Santiago Bernabeu while Luka Modric and Karim Benzema both started on the bench, with Zidane keeping one eye on Wednesday’s quarter-final second leg at home to Juventus. Real boast a 3-0 advantage from the opening leg in Turin and Simeone suggested on Sunday that Los Blancos should now be considered favourites to claim a third consecutive European triumph.Zidane, however, is wary of complacency.“Everyone sees us going through to the semi-finals and that’s exactly what we should not put in our head,” Zidane said. “We know very well that we will have to suffer again on Wednesday.”Atletico, meanwhile, will now turn their attention to the Europa League and Thursday’s quarter-final second leg against Sporting Lisbon. They won the home leg 2-0 last week.They should arrive in confident mood after retaining their four-point cushion over Real in second place while it was perhaps the perfect result for leaders Barcelona, who are now 11 points clear at the top. “We deserved more today clearly, it’s a shame,” Zidane said. “We had many chances, but in the end we could have lost the game as well.”Griezmann’s goal came on his 200th appearance for Atleti while Ronaldo’s was the 500th in the 161 league matches played between these two city rivals. On Griezmann, Simeone said: “He is a great player, he did not have a good start to the season and he knows it and it is not easy to reinvent himself in the way he did in November, December. “I think the presence of (Diego) Costa has helped him a lot, having strength around him which allows him to be free.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ronaldo got the opener for Real in Sunday’s Madrid derby © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYSMadrid, Spain, Apr 8 – Zinedine Zidane has told his players to ignore the Champions League hype around Real Madrid after they were held to a 1-1 draw by city rivals Atletico in La Liga on Sunday.Cristiano Ronaldo’s 24th goal in 15 games this year was not enough to earn his side a derby victory as an Antoine Griezmann equaliser secured Diego Simeone’s side a point. last_img read more

first_imgThe protest in Dublin was massiveDONEGAL TD Padraig Mac Lochlainn has hit out at people misrepresenting his party’s position on water charges.The Sinn Fein Deputy was speaking as an estimated 80,000 to 100,000 people brought Dublin to a standstill on Saturday in protest at the water tax.While some platform speakers called for people not to pay the charges, Deputy Mac Lochlainn said the Right2Water protest’s official position is that each householder should make their own decision. He also said he would not be returning the Irish Water forms to the company.“There has been some confusion around Sinn Féin’s position on water charges over recent days. It has also been misrepresented by those yet again seeking division and short term political gain for themselves,” said Deputy Mac Lochlainn.He insisted: “Be very clear though. Those families who choose not to pay or those who simply cannot pay will have the full solidarity and support of Sinn Féin.”Sinn Fein says it will axe water charges if it gets into government in 2016. In an online debate, Deputy Mac Lochlainn said he and his family had decided not to return the Irish Water forms which must be returned by the end of this month.“It’s not the individual person but the family that must make that financial decision. Many families will reluctantly decide to pay voluntarily in order to avoid hundreds of euro more of a bill because they were stung before on the household charge and property tax protest,” he said.“Our household has decided not to return the form and not to pay voluntarily. But it shouldn’t be divide and conquer.“Just because some families reluctantly pay does not mean that they are not opposed to the water charges and are excluded from joining protests like the one yesterday.“Many people who travelled to the protest yesterday may reluctantly pay.” MacLOCHLAINN HITS OUT AS 100,000 PROTEST AGAINST WATER CHARGES was last modified: October 12th, 2014 by John2Share 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:dublin protestPadraig MacLochlainn TDSinn Feinwater chargeswater taxeslast_img read more

Gender Dysphoria Is Not Biological

first_imgA new analysis of gender dysphoria finds causation in brain networks, not genetics or brain biology.In a day when growing numbers of people are questioning the gender of the body they were born in, and demanding laws to protect their chosen gender identity, it is vital to look at the science behind gender dysphoria. Can a person really be born in the wrong body? Is gender simply a matter of choice? Some transgender folks claim they are a man (or woman) born in the body of a woman (or man). If that were true, there should be some biological evidence: genetic, or detectable brain morphology.**Note: we are not discussing rare intersex individuals who actually have biological defects in their chromosomes or were born with ambiguous genitalia. “Transexual” individuals suffer emotional confusion about their gender with no biological basis.Credit: Chip Box, posted on World Magazine.One theory about transgenderism claims it is caused by brain structure: a boy developing a girl-type brain, or vice versa. That theory has been shot down by a study from the Society for Neuroscience, reported by Science Daily:A new theory of gender dysphoria argues the symptoms of the condition are due to changes in network activity, rather than incorrect brain sex, according to work recently published in eNeuro. (Visited 392 times, 2 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterest Gender dysphoria is a state of extreme distress caused by the feeling that a person’s true gender does not match the gender assigned at birth. The leading theory of the mechanism behind gender dysphoria attributes the condition to people possessing brains regions with the size and shape of the opposite sex, instead of their biological sex. However, recent brain imaging studies don’t support that theory.Stephen Gliske, publishing his theory in eNeuro, believes brain size and shape does not cause gender dysphoria. It’s in the brain networking, which is pliable:He proposes gender dysphoria is caused by altered activity in three networks — the distress, social behavior, and body-ownership networks — affecting distress and one’s sense of their own gender. Previous studies support the premise that activity changes in these networks are associated with anatomical changes and feelings of gender dysphoria.The new theory may disturb those looking to excuse and maintain their dysphoria. But it offers good news for people suffering from unnecessary distress who believe falsely that their brain makes them confused about their gender. “If supported by further research,” the press release says with a bit of hedging, “this theory could offer ways to treat the distress of gender dysphoria patients without relying on invasive and irreversible gender reassignment surgery.”In the paper, Gliske presents his “updated theory of gender dysphoria” with hope that it “may lead to therapies which directly address the underlying biology rather than just the subjective symptoms.” Gliske doesn’t state the following implications, but it seems the least invasive way to correct gender dysphoria is to help individuals to love and accept the gender that matches their biological reality. A healthy society should correct dysphoria with phoria, the ability for both eyes to focus together. Gender dysphoria puts the body and mind out of sync. Does a healthy culture wish to keep people cross-eyed? Like giving drug addicts free needles and drugs, acceptance only prolongs the harm. The loving thing is to help turn dysphoria into eudaimonia, a harmonious integration of mind and body.Standing up for TruthIn their Dec 6 radio broadcast Washington Watch, Family Research Council discussed a recently-discovered document that revealed a strategy by LGBT activists to push the culture toward full acceptance of their lifestyle. Host Sarah Perry interviewed Doug Mainwaring, whose article on LifeSiteNews unveiled a document that shows how they intentionally bypass legislation and the news media to surreptitiously nudge people through NGOs. The rapid success LGBT activists are achieving through these stealth methods makes it seem as if their views are on the “right side of history,” making their critics afraid to speak out.The title alone is alarming: “Only Adults? Good Practices in Legal Gender Recognition for Youth.” Although the slick 64-page document deals with specific practices and tactics that have proved successful for expanding transgender policies and power in a general way, it primarily focuses on how to hand power to children to declare whatever gender they choose while squashing parental authority and concern.Over the years, progressives who seek to fundamentally change society have diligently developed strategies that win. They don’t promote ideas that win on their own merit; in fact, they have had amazing success promoting ideas that most people would normally reject. As this newly published document demonstrates, LGBT activists rely on stealth, behind-the-scenes efforts that do an end run around public discourse and legislative processes, resulting in new laws, new regulations, and the untenable demands of the “woke” culture that are increasingly overtaking government at every level.In some cases, LGBT activists have turned to violence (WND, WND) using intimidation to make those with traditional views afraid to speak their minds. So thoroughly has the LGBT lobby brainwashed the culture about the normality of these “dysphoria” (anxiety) conditions, many normal people are afraid to state what used to be patently obvious: each of the letters in the LGBT acronym represent abnormal states of mind and behavior. That doesn’t imply that the dysphoric should be persecuted any more than drug addicts or sex addicts should be, but the proper solution cannot be to deny the truth. Academic institutions are succumbing to the pressure, not wanting to be perceived as falling behind ( some Christians are compromising the clear teaching of Scripture, afraid to be judged as “homophobes” – a label often a precursor to loss of a job, funding, or even the ability to voice an opinion. A few retain the boldness to avoid being dragged along with the culture; see Erik Rush on WND, and notice how scary it sounds these days to state the obvious. Mike Brown on WND deals with strategies for pastors and businesses when faced by threats to compromise with the culture’s growing intolerance of traditional morality and biological facts.The biological family is the foundation of a healthy society.An important recent book by Nancy Pearcey, Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions About Life and Sexuality, analyzes the morass of sexual and political problems that sprang from “social contract” theory – the ideas of Rousseau and other Enlightenment philosophers who, by declaring independence from God as Creator, renounced the biological bases of sex, gender and marriage that people had lived by for millennia. Pearcey explains why a neo-Gnostic “two-story” philosophy that separated the body below from the self above has opened a Pandora’s box of personal and political disasters that are currently destroying marriage itself, and sending masses of people into confusion and distress in opposition to their created biological nature. The consequences of rejection of God’s order as taught in Genesis, Pearcey shows, include loss of freedom for all families. For instance, if biologically unrelated men or women can be granted parenting rights in a same-sex union, then government becomes the arbiter of who gets those rights, and who can be deprived of parenting rights. This puts all children at risk, and gives more power to civil government. In Genesis, those rights are God-given, based in our biological nature and the plan of God for marriage and family. The exceptions where biological parents are unable to fulfill their roles do not undermine the rule. Government can help in those situations, but marriage and parenting rights preceded government. They are human rights, part of the “unalienable rights” from our Creator.Well-written, honest and sensitive, without being judgmental, Pearcey’s eye-opening and well-documented book explores divorce, the hook-up culture, the collapse of marriage, homosexuality, transgenderism and gender dysphoria. Readers may become distressed at reading about these catastrophic consequences of rejecting God’s Word that are happening now with increasing intensity. But it’s the only way to understand what is going on, how society got to this messy condition, and what the solution must be. Marriage makes perfect sense biologically and morally when seen as a covenant, not a social contract, that involves not just the self but the community of relatives and children that result from a heterosexual union, creating relationships for the good of society. Throughout the book, Pearcey gives a positive message that God created sex and gender for our good. She shows why our greatest happiness will come from being what we were created to be.Everything created by God is good (I Timothy 4:4). Photo by DFC from AiG Creation Museum.last_img read more

Samsung Galaxy S10 in pictures: New live images, renders seemingly confirm design

first_imgThe Galaxy S10 is one of the most anticipated flagships of 2019, which means it is also one of the most leaked smartphones this year. Ahead of its unveiling on February 20, the Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e have been subjected to numerous leaks that have included alleged official renders, live images and specs. It’s pretty clear now that these phones are bringing punch-hole displays and that two of them will come with triple cameras. But if you are looking for further confirmation, we have accumulated a bunch of fresh live images and renders that surfaced on the internet this week.The first set of live hands-on images of the Galaxy S10 this week comes via a Twitter handle, called SaudiAndroid, which posted four images Galaxy S10 and S10+. The images show off both the front and back of the phone and are in line with what past reports have told us. Both the phones will offer tall curved displays with a cutout on the top right corner. The Galaxy S10 gets a small circular hole to house a single selfie camera, while the S10+ gets a pill-shaped hole to house dual selfie cameras. We also see the in-display fingerprint sensor icon on the bottom of the screen. The rear panel on both the Galaxy S10 and S10+ are made up of glass and we see a horizontal triple camera system with an LED flash and heart rate sensor. The Galaxy S10e will come with dual rear cameras in a similar horizontal alignment.advertisementIf the live images weren’t clear enough, writer Roland Quandt posted a bunch of high resolution renders of the Galaxy S10 lineup, giving a clean and clear look at what the phones will look like. Additionally, Quandt’s renders suggest the Galaxy S10 and S10+ will come in black, white and green colours. The Galaxy S10+ will also come in a Ceramic Black colour, which is likely for to the top-most variant with 12GB of RAM and 1TB of internal storage. Quandt also posted renders of the Galaxy S10e, which is supposedly the iPhone XR of the Galaxy S10 lineup. The Galaxy S10e will mostly get the same hardware and design, but with some differences here and there. For one thing, it is said to come with a flat Infinity-O AMOLED display. It will get a hole-punch cutout similar to the regular Galaxy S10 i.e on the top right corner. The bezels around the display are said to be more visible than the other the phones (much like the bezels on the iPhone XR). The Galaxy S10e will see the fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button rather than under the display. It will sport the smallest display among the three phones at 5.8 inches. The Galaxy S10 will come with a 6.1-inch screen, while the S10+ will get a 6.4-inch display. The S10e will also get a small 3,100mAh battery in comparison to the S10 and S10+ which will come with 3,400mAh and 4,100mAh capacities, respectively. Apart from the black, green and white colours, the Galaxy S10e is also said to come in yellow as well. Lastly, we have what seems to be an official marketing image of the Galaxy Buds truly wireless earphones. The earbuds are placed in the case with the case resting on the back of the Galaxy S10, which also seems to confirm the rumour that the Galaxy S10 will support reverse wireless charging. The Galaxy Buds are said to cost EUR 149 (approx Rs 12,000) and will look to take on Apple’s AirPods. The company will likely announce the new Galaxy Buds along with the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Sport smartwatch on February 20 at Unpacked 2019.ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e can be pre-booked starting February 21ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy S10 passes FCC certification, reveals 9W reverse wireless charging support, Wi-Fi 6last_img read more

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Their findings help to highlight the inequality which exists between the male and female games, particularly in football.Looking into the employment status and pay of thousands of athletes around the world, Sporting Intelligence have shown how far ahead the likes of Neymar are when it comes to generating the most money.Having completed a record-breaking €222 million transfer from Barcelona to PSG over the summer, the Brazilian is reportedly set to earn £32.9 million over the course of the 2017-18 campaign.That figure is purely what he will pull in from his playing contract and does not take into account the millions he receives from commercial deals.It is, however, still enough to see him earn almost exactly the same as 1,693 female players turning out in France, Germany, England, the United States, Sweden, Australia and Mexico combined.While PSG sit fifth on the list of the world’s highest-paying sports teams, with an average annual salary of over £6.4m and with only Barcelona above them in footballing terms, Lyon top the women’s list at just £145,000-a-year. Team Division Average annual salary Oklahoma City Thunder NBA £7,150,388 Cleveland Cavaliars NBA £6,919,714 Golden State Warriors NBA £6,877,528 Barcelona La Liga £6,597,500 Paris Saint-Germain Ligue 1 £6,472,355 In England, those in the FA Women’s Super League receive an average salary of £26,752 compared to the £2.64m paid to their male equivalents.The figures make for startling viewing and Ruth Holdaway, chief executive of the Women In Sport charity, believes it is down to the respective governing bodies of sports across the globe to address the issue.She said in The Guardian: “We’d love to see more governing bodies valuing their female athletes the same as their male athletes.“It’s not just about equal pay; it’s about the message that sends out about how much women are valued.“In tennis, the commitment to equal pay at Wimbledon is a good example of a sporting body realising that while the men’s and women’s game are different the players put in the same amount of effort and are all playing at the height of their abilities.”Football is a long way short of equality at present, with Neymar’s riches just one example of the gulf which continues to exist in the gender gap.last_img read more

Russia considers Crimea, which it annexed in 2014, part of its country.The Ukrainian ministry in charge of occupied territories on Wednesday published what it claimed were the exact co-ordinates of where the military vessels “Berdiansk”, “Nikopol”, and “Yany Kapu” were when they were attacked by Russia, putting them outside the 12-mile zone of territorial waters.Russian border guards have captured the vessels and the crews.

Oppn parties will fall flat in LS polls PM

first_imgKushinagar/Deoria: As campaigning for Lok Sabha polls entered its final phase, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday predicted the defeat of the opposition parties, saying the people were voting for an effective government. “Opposition parties will fall flat in polls. This is because people are voting for an effective and honest government,” he said at an election rally in Kushinagar and later in Deoria in eastern UP which go to polls in the last phase on May 19. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework Attacking the SP-BSP alliance, Modi said he had been the chief minister of Gujarat more than the terms of Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati combined as Uttar Pradesh chief ministers, and there was no blot of corruption on him. “Now these people have started demanding a certificate of my caste. I never indulge in caste politics and by your blessings, it was never needed. But when they are demanding a certificate, I tell them that I may have been born in an extremely backward caste, but my dream is to make India a frontrunner (in the world). Also Read – Trio win Nobel Medicine Prize for work on cells, oxygen “To all casteist leaders I would like to say my only caste is poor, my only identity is poor. I have faced poverty, felt its pain and came out of poverty. And with the blessings of the poor, I have got the opportunity to serve the country,” Modi said. “I held the post of chief minister of Gujarat for a long time and the post of prime minister has been given by you. But neither I nor my family ever misused the post or the power. I have been CM for a longer time when compared to the combined stint of ‘bua’ (Mayawati) and ‘babua’ (Akhilesh Yadav),” he said. Modi said he never transformed the poverty of his family to richness. “The post of power was used to serve the poor and work for their welfare and interest. Those who are demanding my caste certificate, they have accumulated wealth and property for themselves when they were in power. “I have been the CM of Gujarat and prime minister for five years and my record is an open book, which is in front of the entire country,” he said. Hitting out at BSP chief Mayawati for her remarks on the Alwar gangrape case, the prime minister asked her “not to shed crocodile tears” for the victim. “If you are serious, why don’t you withdraw support from the Congress government in Rajasthan,” he asked. Even the Congress government wanted to suppress the incident involving a Dalit woman, he said, adding that the party thought “hua toh hua”, a reference to Sam Pitroda’s remark on 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Hitting out at the opposition, Modi said, “The biggest example of how the ‘mahamilawat’ of SP-BSP-Congress actually works is Rajasthan. “A Dalit daughter was gang-raped and there is the government of Congress and ‘naamdaar’. And the Rajasthan government is not a government which enjoys full majority. It is working with the support of BSP. It is busy in hushing up the matter.” Intensifying his attack on the Congress, he said, “The Congress which chants nyay, nyay, nyay, its naamdaar has been silenced by the rapists. Today, the daughters of UP are asking Behenji (Mayawati), and Behanji you have to answer why you have not withdrawn your support to the Congress government (in Rajasthan). You are shedding crocodile tears by only indulging in issuing statements. “When the (Lucknow) guest house incident happened, the entire country was pained. What is the reason that you are not feeling pained. If you are so honest about the dignity of the daughters, then you should immediately write a letter to the Rajasthan Governor and withdraw your support from the Congress government,” he said. “To punish those who commit crime on women, this chowkidaar of yours had made provisions for the capital punishment. If the intention of the Congress government was right, it would not have suppressed the Alwar incident, but they have only one answer ‘hua toh hua’. Be it corruption, price rise or the 1984 anti-Sikh genocide, their answer is ‘hua toh hua’,” he said. Referring to the encounter in Shopian district of Jammu and Kashmir Sunday morning, Modi wondered, “Will our jawans take EC’s permission before opening fire at militants? Opposition ne kya khel bana rakha hai? (What drama is the opposition enacting).” In both Kushinagar and Deoria, he said it was surprising that opposition parties were saying that elections were on and the security forces were opening fire on militants. “In the morning when reports and news come, I learn that terrorists have been gunned down in Kashmir. Now some people are perturbed over the fact that when polling is going on today, then why did Modi kill the terrorists? They (terrorists) are standing with guns toting, will my jawan go to seek the permission of the Election Commission whether I should fire at the terrorist or not. “Since, we have come to power every second-third day, terrorists are killed. This safai abhiyaan is my work,” he said. Seeking votes, he said it was time to make the victory historic in such a way that the ‘mahamilawat’ (grand adulterated) people stop thinking about facing the people in future. He also said, “They are unable to understand why the people of the country are showering their love on the chowkidaar… It is for the fight against terror that the country is voting for the BJP and Modi. Those who used to threaten India have fallen flat, they are feeling afraid.” Modi said the SP and the BSP were incapable of taking on terrorists. About the Congress, he said, “Congress ne pahley jawan ka sar katwaya (jawan was beheaded during Cong rule), now the party has become ‘vote katwa’ (vote cutter).last_img read more

UNAIDS teams up with Brazilian footballer David Luiz ahead of World Cup

David Luiz teamed up with a butterfly sign to support Zero Discrimination. He says you can make a difference by joining the winning team of #zerodiscrimination. Credit: UNAIDS. More info“During the World Cup, everyone’s eyes will be on Brazil and David will be an inspiration both on and off the pitch,” Mr. Sidibé added.Also today, the Government of Brazil announced a carbon neutral goal for the World Cup that would inspire other organizers to make high-profile climate action.The Government is encouraging holders of carbon credits from the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) – called certified emission reductions (CERs) – to donate them to the World Cup organizers to offset emissions from construction and renovation, consumption of fossil fuels from official and public transport, and other sources.Each CER is equivalent to one ton of carbon dioxide. An estimated one million CERs or more is needed to offset the World Cup, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) said, depending on what was covered in the calculation. That would be equivalent to taking nearly 300,000 passenger cars off the road for a year.“Brazil’s call for carbon credits to offset emissions from the world’s largest mass spectator event is a welcome move and part of a global trend by organizers to green big sporting events like football tournaments and the Olympics,” said Christiana Figueres, the UN’s top climate change official and Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC.According to the UNFCCC, all donated credits must originate from Brazilian CDM projects.Nearly 150 Brazilian CDM projects have issued more than 90 million CERs, of which an estimated 14 million could be available for donation. “The smallest accepted donation is 5,000 CERs and donors will receive an official certificate acknowledging their contribution to offsetting the FIFA World Cup in Brazil,” UNFCCC reported.It also cited media reports that FIFA is planning to offset the emissions of officials and fans by perhaps buying carbon offsets. “I want to use this position to spread the word about how to overcome AIDS around the world,” said Mr. Luiz, who plays in the Premier League team Chelsea, and who will be the vice-captain of the national Brazilian football team in the sporting event that starts in June.“People will be looking to my country Brazil to see great football at the World Cup and this is a great opportunity for [the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) ] and I to speak out—and I want to help make UNAIDS the winning team,” said the footballer, who is already part of the UNAIDS ‘Protect the Goal’ campaign.The head of UNAIDS said Mr. Luiz’s “heart and compassion” will make a big difference in reaching millions of young people with important messages calling for an end to discrimination, advocating for HIV prevention and access to treatment. “In football, players come together to produce results. In the same way we must unite, and, as a team, get to zero new HIV infections,” said Executive Director Michel Sidibé.An estimated 780,000 of the total 2.3 million new HIV infections worldwide are among adolescents and young people aged 15–24 years, according to UNAIDS. Of the total estimated 35.3 million people living with HIV around the world, an estimated 5.4 million are young people, many unaware of their status. Mr. Luiz will also be promoting UNAIDS’ #zerodiscrimination campaign, which calls on people to celebrate everyone’s right to live a full life with dignity – no matter what they look like, where they come from or whom they love. read more

Prof pens new book about asexuality

Prof. Tony Bogaert has a written a new book called Understanding Asexuality.Many of us have had that morning-after revelation that sex can, indeed, occur without candlelight, flowers and moonlit serenades.But romance… without sex?That would be par for the course for someone who has no sexual attraction whatsoever to either a man or a woman.So says Anthony Bogaert, professor of community health sciences and psychology.“There’s evidence that many asexual people are in fact romantically inclined, that they do want to have a love bond with a partner, they do want to have some kind of affectionate intimacy that we define in a romantic kind of way, but not have any need or interest in any kind of sexual bonding with their romantic partner,” he says.Bogaert is on the cusp of releasing his book, “Understanding Asexuality.” In it, he expands upon his previous work and other researchers’ findings as he explores two groups of people: those who experience no sexual attraction or desire whatsoever and those who experience no sexual attraction to others but still have a “non-specific” sex drive that is typically satisfied in solitary sex.He says that asexual people tend to de-couple romance and sex.Tony Bogaert’s new book, Understanding AsexualityBut that does not mean that asexual people are unable or even unwilling to perform when required. Bogaert says some asexual people are happily married with children.“They could have certain physical sensations and know that this is pleasurable on some physical level,” says Bogaert. “But it doesn’t mean that they are sexually attracted to whoever or whatever stimulates those sensations. It would just be like, I could have done that with anything or anyone.”Bogaert argues that asexuality is actually a fourth category of sexuality – gay, straight, bisexual, and asexual – complete with an “epiphany” and identity process similar to what many gay people go through.“There is a recognition that one is different and then, if you have enough knowledge and information based on the Internet or books you’ve read or friends, you may actually attach a label to yourself and say, ‘Ah ha! That’s what I am. I am asexual,’” says Bogaert.“And then you may even have a coming out experience where you actually profess in a public way that you are this.”He estimates that between 0.5 to one percent of the population might be asexual.In his book, Bogaert talks about how asexuals view sex, art and other aspects of life through a non-sexual lens, seeing sex as being “mad.”“Understanding Asexuality” is scheduled for release August 15. read more

Ohio State womens volleyball extends win streak grabs 1st place in Big

Members of the OSU women’s volleyball team during a game against Nebraska on Oct. 3 at St. John Arena. OSU won 3-2. Credit: Ed Momot / For The LanternComing into the 2015 season, the Ohio State women’s volleyball team was picked by Big Ten coaches to finish eighth in the conference.The team has talked about using that as motivation all season long, and with victories against No. 18 Purdue (15-4, 6-2) and Indiana (12-8, 2-6) in St. John Arena over the weekend, the No. 7 Buckeyes (18-2, 7-1) now find themselves tied for first place in the Big Ten.With the wins, OSU also extended its winning streak to seven. The Buckeyes haven’t lost since their first conference game of the year against Minnesota on Sept. 23.In Game 1 of the weekend on Friday, OSU staged a comeback victory over the Boilermakers, who were previously undefeated in conference play.After a hot start by the Buckeyes, they dropped the second and third sets to the Boilermakers, and looked to be in danger of having their five-game winning streak snapped when Purdue jumped out to an 8-2 advantage in the fourth. OSU was able to close the gap, however, forcing a fifth set, which it won decisively.“We fought and we executed well in that last set,” junior libero Valeria León said. “Our tempo was really good. We got them a little bit off balance. It was a fight that game; it was not pretty at all.”Senior middle blocker Andrea Kacsits said it was huge for the Buckeyes to escape with a win after not playing their best volleyball.“Every win matters, but those are the ones that build your character and build your résumé,” she said. “Those ones are incredibly important in the end.”Coming into the game, coach Geoff Carlston emphasized serving as a key to slowing down Purdue, and OSU responded with its best game of the season from the service line, racking up 13 aces. Sophomore outside hitter Luisa Schirmer led the Buckeyes with a career-high five aces, while freshman setter Taylor Hughes also set a personal-best with three.The Buckeyes were also powered by a stout defensive performance, holding Purdue — which came into the game leading the Big Ten in attack percentage and kills per set — to a .197 attack percentage.OSU tallied 12 total blocks, six coming from senior middle blocker Tyler Richardson (one solo) and four each from junior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe (two solo) and senior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell. León picked up 16 digs, while Schirmer and Hughes added to their big serving nights with 15 apiece.“People always notice the blocking and the hitting, but the little things like coverage and serving (are also important),” Sandbothe said.To complement her blocking efforts, Sandbothe also led the OSU offense — which was held to a .232 attack percentage — with 16 kills and two aces. Campbell added to her four blocks with 11 kills and one ace. Sophomore outside hitter Ashley Wenz, who had appeared in only 12 sets all year, tied a career-best with six kills, four coming in OSU’s fourth-set comeback.Against the Hoosiers on Sunday, the Buckeyes rebounded from a slow start to take home their seventh straight win (22-25, 25-18, 25-23, 25-18).Behind seven kills from junior outside hitter Amelia Anderson, Indiana took an early lead as it fought off OSU in the first set. The Buckeyes would bounce back, never trailing in the second set to tie things up at the intermission. After winning a closely contested third set, OSU dominated the final set by leading the whole way.Similarly to Friday’s match, the Buckeyes didn’t have their best game offensively with a .218 attack percentage, but dug in on defense to hold Indiana to a .160 mark.León once again led OSU with 17 digs, while Schirmer and freshman outside hitter Audra Appold contributed 13 and 12, respectively, as the Buckeyes out-dug the Hoosiers 77-62.OSU had 7.5 blocks — four coming in the final set of the match — led by Sandbothe’s three and two each from Campbell, Richardson and Wenz.Sandbothe had 14 kills on offense, and did not make an error until the final set as she hit at a .565 attack percentage. Campbell (15 kills, two blocks) was the only other Buckeye to reach double-digit points.After Wenz stepped up to lift the OSU offense in Friday’s match, senior setter Emily Ruetter did the same on Sunday. Ruetter took over for Hughes midway through the third set and picked up 19 assists, seven digs, one block and one kill.It will be a quick turnaround for the Buckeyes, as they are scheduled to travel to East Lansing, Michigan, on Wednesday to take on Michigan State. The match is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. read more

Meghan OSullivan warns of darker downside to Northern Ireland stalemate

first_imgTHE VICE-CHAIR of recent talks in Northern Ireland has warned of a “darker downside” to not finding a way forward on political issues.Meghan O’Sullivan was speaking to RTÉ’s Prime Time programme this evening and said that it’s already been seen that the inability of parties to compromise has led to violence:There could be an even darker downside. Which is the fact we’ve seen issues around parades and flags lead to political and social unrest, and even violence in some cases. And a conditioned stagnation or stalemate on these issues could fuel more protests and could fuel rejectionists on both sides of the spectrum.O’Sullivan said that if there isn’t compromise on the three issues of “the past, flags and emblems and issues of identity, and parades” then it would be ”a major loss for Northern Ireland”. Failure could, “bog down that society and prevent it being prosperous and free”, she said.O’Sullivan made a plea to all parties to look at the draft deal put forward by her and talks chair Richard Haass as a whole, and not focus on the areas to which they disagree.“There was not a single party that got everything it wanted and there certainly wasn’t a single party that didn’t get a good bit of what it wanted,” she said.There needs to be on the part of every single party a willingness to say ‘We got what we needed here, we didn’t get what we wanted here. But we can look at this package as an overall package and we can make the case both to the people of Northern Ireland and to our particular constituencies that overall this is a good agreement.’“Obviously not all parties were willing to do that,” she added.O’Sullivan’s direct intervention comes a day after she and Haass released a joint statement saying that they felt that some elements in the process were being “unrealistic in the extreme”.They urged parties to keep working towards compromise and this point was reiterated by O’Sullivan tonight saying that, “I’m not yet ready to acknowledge failure per se. These talks and the agreement is still open and in play.”O’Sullivan described the negotiation process as “different to the Good Friday Agreement process”. This she explained to Miriam O’Callaghan was primarily because, although the Irish and British governments were kept informed of the talks, the talks were “about internal political issues”.Read: Richard Haass says some in Northern Ireland are being ‘unrealistic in the extreme’ >Column: Failure of Haass talks highlights two serious problems in modern Northern Ireland >last_img read more

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson cancels Russia trip after US bombs Syria

first_img Image: Nick Ansell/PA Wire Updated at 4.05pmBRITAIN’S FOREIGN SECRETARY Boris Johnson has cancelled a scheduled visit to Moscow next week, saying “developments in Syria have changed the situation fundamentally”.“My priority is now to continue contact with the US and others in the run up to the G7 meeting on 10-11 April,” said Johnson, who was due to travel to Moscow on Monday.“We deplore Russia’s continued defence of the Assad regime even after the chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians,” added Johnson.He then called on Russia to do “everything possible to bring about a political settlement in Syria and work with the rest of the international community to ensure that the shocking events of the last week are never repeated”.“I discussed these plans in detail with Secretary Tillerson,” Johnson said, adding that the US foreign minister would still visit Moscow as planned following the G7 meeting to “deliver that clear and co-ordinated message to the Russians”.USEarlier, the US warned it is ready to hit Syria again after the missile strike that infuriated Moscow and fueled calls for a push to end the six-year war.US Ambassador Nikki Haley delivered the warning at an emergency session of the UN Security Council called after the US strikes, which were launched to punish an alleged chemical weapons attack by Bashar al-Assad’s regime.Russia, meanwhile, declared President Donald Trump’s first strike against the Damascus regime a violation of international law and an “act of aggression.”“The United States took a very measured step last night,” Haley told the council.We are prepared to do more, but we hope it will not be necessary.Haley said the strike destroyed an air field from which Washington believes Damascus launched the attack on rebel-held Khan Sheikhun, where 86 people including 27 children died this week.Rights monitors warned, however, that Syrian jets were already flying sorties from the base again as night fell yesterday.The United States fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from warships in the Mediterranean at the Shayrat airfield near Homs in central Syria.Assad’s office called the strike “foolish and irresponsible,” and Moscow announced a series of retaliatory steps including plans to strengthen Syrian air defenses.“The United States will no longer wait for Assad to use chemical weapons without any consequences,” Haley said.Those days are over.Russia accuses US United States’ Ambassador United Nations and current Security Council President Nikki Haley. Source: Mary AltafferThe United States did not seek UN Security Council authorisation for the military action that followed days of global outrage at images of dead children from the suspected sarin gas attack.It was Trump’s biggest military decision since taking office and marked a dramatic escalation in American involvement in Syria’s protracted war.“The United States attacked the territory of sovereign Syria,” Russian Deputy Ambassador Vladimir Safronkov told the council, denouncing a “flagrant violation of international law and an act of aggression.”US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, in Florida to attend a summit between Trump and China’s Xi Jinping, is due in Moscow next week for talks with President Vladimir Putin.“I’m disappointed in that response from the Russians because it indicates their continued support for the Assad regime,” said Tillerson.“In particular,” he said, the response showed the Kremlin’s “continued support for a regime that carries out these kinds of horrendous attacks on their own people.“I find it very disappointing but — sadly, I have to tell you — not all that surprising.”In Washington, a senior US official said Syria may have had help carrying out the alleged chemical attack, but stopped short of accusing Russia of complicity.© – AFP 2017Read: Syria airstrike: Donald Trump’s 180 degree shift on attacking the Assad regime Saturday 8 Apr 2017, 4:00 PM Short URL UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson cancels Russia trip after US bombs Syria “The United States will no longer wait for Assad to use chemical weapons without any consequences.” 93 Comments Share3 Tweet Email By AFP Apr 8th 2017, 4:00 PM Image: Nick Ansell/PA Wire 25,445 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Au mois de décembre dernier, l’entreprise avait annoncé que le mois de février 2012 serait le premier pas vers un déploiement sur le continent africain et océanique. D’ici le mois de juin, c’est sur 200 pays que Deezer souhaite être accessible.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Pour cela, la société cherche à lever entre 50 et 100 millions d’investissement indique Les Echos. La société serait ainsi valorisée à hauteur de 500 millions d’euros et pourra avoir les moyens de ses ambitions. Mais cette, c’est vers des investisseurs étrangers que Deezer prospecte. Orange, qui détient aujourd’hui 11% du capital de l’entreprise, ne remettra pas la main à la poche.Cette association avec l’opérateur français lui est néanmoins profitable puisque Orange est déjà bien installé dans de nombreux pays, en nom propre ou par des filiales, et pourra proposer un accès illimité au contenu du service de streaming comme il le fait actuellement chez nous via son offre mobile Origami Style.On estime aujourd’hui à 1,5 millions d’utilisateurs la base française de Deezer et cette internationalisation est désormais obligatoire pour contrer son principal concurrent Spotify, qui lui, dispose d’un partenariat avancé avec le réseau social Facebook, ce qui lui confère un avantage considérable en terme de visibilité.

ALs polls phobia leads to Gazipur election postponement BNP

first_imgLogo of BNPBNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Sunday alleged that the government has got the Gazipur City Corporation election stayed by the court resorting to tricks sensing the sure defeat of the ruling party mayoral candidate.He came up with the observation at a press conference at BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office.”The government could realise the defeat of its candidate. That’s why they’ve got a writ filed by their party man, and stayed the Gazipur city polls,” the BNP leader said.Fakhrul said Savar upazila Awami League labour and manpower affairs secretary ABM Azharul Islam filed the writ with the High Court “at the behest of the government. This incident has once again exposed that the government has got totally isolated from people.”Earlier in the day, the High Court stayed the Gazipur City Corporation election scheduled to be held on 15 May.An HC bench of justice Naima Haider and justice Zafar Ahmed passed the order following a hearing on the writ petition.The HC also issued a rule asking the government to explain as to why the inclusion of six moujas of Dhaka district into GCC should not be declared illegal.Fakhrul said BNP considers the stay order on the Gazipur polls as a victory of the party. “The government was forced to stop the polls to avoid its sure defeat.”He strongly condemned and protested the arrest of party vice chairman Abdullah Al Noman and other party leaders and activists at Tongi, Gazipur.The BNP secretary general demanded the government immediately release those were arrested, including Noman.He said the government is getting the election stayed as it suffers from an ‘election phobia’.Fakhrul also criticised the election commission, saying it is not playing an impartial role. “Our senior leader Moudud Ahmed has already demanded that the commission be reconstituted.”He said the EC has failed to take proper steps for holding fair and credible polls. “So, we’re also worried about the national election.”BNP standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Moudud Ahmed, Dr Abdul Moyeen Khan and Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury were present.last_img read more

Dhaka to ask UK to deport Tarique

first_imgTarique RahmanThe government will send a request letter to the United Kingdom, in a bid, as officials say, to bring back BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman after his life-term sentence in the 21 August grenade attack case.As part of the process, according to the home minister, Dhaka will propose the UK government to sign an extradition treaty to exchange criminals between the two countries.”We’ll once again send a letter (to the UK) to sign the extradition treaty,” home minister Asaduzzaman Khan told Prothom Alo.He, however, admitted that the UK government earlier declined to sign the treaty.BNP leader Tarique Rahman went to the UK for treatment in 2008, taking permission from the court. The minister said he has been living there under the coverage of political asylum.Officials at the home, law and foreign affairs ministries acknowledged the difficulties in bringing back Tarique Rahman as the UK government has to abide by a number of legal obligations before sending back any convicted person.The UK court, not the government, has the ‘final say’ in deciding such matters, the officials concerned pointed out.In 2015, officials recalled, foreign minister AH Mahmood Ali sent letters to bring back Tarique Rahman, a fugitive in a number of cases. Also then, the UK government did not respond positively to Dhaka’s requst, officials pointed out.Following the verdict in the 21 August grenade attack case on 10 October, the Awami League government is taking an initiative to bring back the fugitives, the officials said. There are 18 such fugitives in the case and the government will try to locate them said the officials.”We would send letters to bring back fugitives in the grenade attack,” said the home minister.Another convict in the 21 August attack case, BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia’s former political secretary Haris Chowhdury was reportedly seen in the UK.The government will try to know from the UK government whether Haris Chowdhury has been living there, or has secured political asylum, officials said.Maulana Tajuddin was indicted in the first charge-sheet submitted in 2008 in the grenade attack case. He is a brother of BNP-led alliance government’s deputy minister Abdus Salam Pintu. Pintu and his another brother have been convicted.Pintu and Tajuddin have been sentenced to death. Another brother Ratul Ahmed aka Ratul Babu has been sentenced to life. Pintu is in jail while two others remain absconding.Two others have been reportedly living in South Africa, according to officials. Interpol South Africa informed the Bangladesh authorities that Tajuddin has got political asylum over there.Dhaka wants to sign extradition treaty with South Africa as well, according to the home ministry officials.”The home ministry will take initiatives to bring back fugitives and we will extend legal support,” law minister Anisul Huq told Prothom Alo.Former member of parliament Kazi Shah Mofazzal Hossain, sentenced to life, is reportedly staying in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The UAE authorities were also approached for extradition treaty, but to no avail.Hanif Transport’s owner Md Hanif has been sentenced to death but his whereabouts could not be confirmed by the government.Twin brothers Mahibul Muttakin and Anisul Mursalin, sentenced to life, have been languishing for a decade in Tihar jail in India.Home minister Asaduzzaman said it would not be difficult to bring back them from India.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Rabiul Islam.last_img read more

Study Says Many Houstonians Still Have A Hard Time Getting To A

first_img– / 7The Trust for Public Land says Houston improved four spots over last year’s ParkScore ranking, but still comes in at #77 on the list of the country’s 100 biggest cities.The study shows Houston has double the national average when it comes to park space. But the problem is accessibility, considering less than half the city’s residents live within a ten-minute walk from a park.

Facebook Hires Vidpresso Team Acquires Social Video Tech

first_img Popular on Variety Facebook has hired the team behind Vidpresso, a startup focused on helping broadcasters with streaming videos to Facebook Live and other social platforms. The social media giant also acquired certain assets related to Vidpresso’s technology, and the startup is transitioning its existing live streaming clients to Facebook as it is winding down its own operations.Vidpresso announced the deal on its website Monday: “Wow. We’re really excited to share we’re joining Facebook effective today.  We will continue to help creators, publishers, and broadcasters create great live experiences, and focus on what we’re best known for: Enabling world-class interactive streams on Facebook Live.”Vidpresso first launched in 2012, and some of its clients included Cosmopolitan, NASDAQ, CNBC, NBC News and BuzzFeed. The company changed course a few times, and at one time was looking to help broadcasters integrate social elements into their traditional TV programming. More recently, Vidpresso had been focusing on social live streaming with interactive elements, with a big emphasis in Facebook Live — work the team now wants to continue from within Facebook:“By joining Facebook we’ll be able to offer our tools to a much broader audience than just our A-list publishing partners,” the company wrote on its website Monday. “Eventually, it’ll allow us to put these tools in the hands of creators, so they can focus on their content, and have it look great, without spending lots of time or money to do so.”Vidpresso’s existing live streaming customers will be transitioned to Facebook’s own tools, according to Techcrunch, which was first to report on the news Monday.

The Tico Times releases the most accurate election poll – and predicts

first_img Facebook Comments The Tico Times released Wednesday night — right before election campaigns closed — the most scientific poll of the 2014 campaign season. Our model concludes that National Liberation Party candidate Johnny Araya and Broad Front Party candidate José María Villalta will head to a runoff after this Sunday’s election.Our forecast shows ruling party candidate Araya receiving 31 percent of the vote, Villalta picking up 25.2 percent, Libertarian Movement candidate Otto Guevara getting 19 percent and Citizen Action Party candidate Luis Guillermo Solís tallying 14.5 percent.The Tico Times is too small to conduct its own survey. So how did we end up with the guaranteed most accurate poll of the election? It was incredibly simple. We aggregated the data from the other trustworthy public polls out there, and averaged them.It took us 10 minutes of basic arithmetic to develop our forecast. We took the recent polls by UCR and CID-Gallup and a mid-January poll by UNIMER for our data. Aggregate polls, while not necessarily performing better than the best poll, should outdo the typical individual poll.As polling expert Nate Silver explains in “The Signal and the Noise”, his book on probability and predictions:Across a number of disciplines, from macroeconomic forecasting to political polling, simply taking an average of everyone’s forecast rather than relying on just one has been found to reduce forecast error, often by about 15 or 20 percent.That’s it. Now our model isn’t as sophisticated as other election prediction gurus. We’re amateurs, but we feel quite confident that our poll will perform better than the rest. Though it still might not perform all that well.We recognize the limitations with the first ever Tico Times poll. The forecast only had three polls to take data from, and the methodology used by these polls even could affect results. For example, we know that the UCR poll only surveyed people with landlines. Since younger people tend to not have landlines, younger voters might have been surveyed less in the UCR poll. (A move that in recent history might favor left-leaning candidates like Villalta and Solís),So we feel confident in our prediction, though there are some clear limitations. But instead of suppressing our data like one notable publication has done, we’ll explain our analysis and concerns.Let’s start by looking at the third and fourth place candidates.Libertarian Movement candidate Guevara has failed to gain ground during the campaign’s final months. Polls actually have him going backwards after a strong end of 2013. After aggregating the polls, we see Villalta has a better chance of overtaking Araya than Guevara has of surpassing VIllalta and moving into second place.A recent spike for center-left candidate Solís has encouraged his base. The enthusiasm seen from his followers on social media finally started to show in the final week of polling. However, a wide gulf still separates Solís from second place Villalta.Here’s another way to look at it: Araya is closer to earning 40 percent of the vote — which would prevent a run off — than Solís is to surpassing Villalta AND forcing a runoff with Araya.And despite the CID-Gallup poll, putting Araya on the verge of a first round victory it still remains more probable than not that a runoff will be necessary.In 2010 the polls did underestimate the Citizens Action Party candidate. Though in that case, late endorsements likely propelled the 2010 candidate to a strong finish.What about undecided voters? Polls showed a high number of undecided voters — nearing 40 percent of respondents.The Tico Times forecast does NOT include voters who were undecided or said they would not vote for a candidate. One of the main limitations of these Costa Rican surveys is that pollsters did not push undecided voters to indicate if they were leaning toward a candidate.If polls showed that undecided voters leaned toward Solís then that would alter our forecast in his favor. If undecideds leaned toward Araya, he might have a chance to win outright on Feb 2. Unfortunately, our knowledge of undecided voters is blank.Yes, like La Nación speculated, the number of undecided voters could mean the election results could vary widely from polls — but this is unlikely. The odds of even a slim majority breaking for one candidate seem small. Instead, with our lack of knowledge about the undecided voters, it’s best to divide those votes evenly among the candidates.That takes us right back to where we were at the beginning. With four days to go until the elections, our forecast indicates Araya and Villalta as the most likely result on Election Day.We invite you to make your own conclusion. Here is a chart of the 14 polls released since August.Dashboard 1 Learn About Tableau Related posts:UCR poll: Araya, Villalta, Solís neck-and-neck as campaigns close Luis Guillermo Solís and Johnny Araya head to April 6 runoff after close Costa Rica vote The real communist threat in Costa Rica Costa Rica’s two top political parties agree to runoff presidential debate, with or without candidateslast_img read more

This statement underscores the extent to which he is willing to go in his desperation to tar Okonjo-Iweala. in 1841," With his presidency coming to an end this Friday.

S. A homeless shelter in Jeffersonville.Deputy Senate President says a bill for the creation of the South East Development Commission (SEDC) will soon be passed by the senate (D-NY), security agencies and political parties as some of the institutions that should be reformed. a program that trains law enforcement officials on the signs and symptoms of mental illness and how to address these matters in a health-oriented rather than enforcement manner. which date back to late September. There were not cars in close proximity that it even damaged and everything was contained within the parking lot so that part was fortunate, its important not only that we remember what he stood for but that we pledge to continue his vision to transform our country And as we look out at our country today what the American people understand is we have an economy thats rigged That ordinary Americans are working longer hours for lower wages 47 million people living in poverty and almost all of the income and wealth going to the top one percent And then to make a bad situation worse we have a corrupt campaign finance system where millionaires and billionaires are spending extraordinary amounts of money to buy elections This campaign is about a political revolution to not only elect the president but to transform this country HOLT: Senator thank you And Governor OMalley your opening statement tonight MARTIN OMALLEY: Thank you My name is Martin OMalley and I was born the year Dr King delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech And I want to thank the people of South Carolina not only for hosting our debate here tonight but also for what you taught all of us in the aftermath of the tragic shooting at Mother Emmanuel Church You taught us in fact in keeping with Dr Kings teaching that love would have the final word when you took down the Confederate flag from your state house let go of the past and move forward Eight years ago you brought forward a new leader in Barack Obama to save our country from the second Great Depression and thats what hes done Our country is doing better were creating jobs again But in order to make good on the promise of equal opportunity and equal justice under the law we have urgent work to do and the voices of anger and fear and division that weve heard coming off the Republican presidential podiums are pretty loud We need new leadership We need to come together as a people and build on the good things that President Obama has done Thats why Im running for president I need your help I ask for your vote and I look forward to moving our country forward once again Thank you HOLT: Governor thank you Alright to our first question now The first question Ill be addressing to all the candidates President Obama came to office determined to swing for the fences on health care reform Voters want to know how you would define your presidency how you would think big So complete this sentence: In my first 100 days in office my top three priorities will be: fill in the blank Senator Sanders SANDERS: Well thats what our campaign is about It is thinking big It is understanding that in the wealthiest country in the history of the world we should have health care for every man woman and child as a right That we should raise the minimum wage to at least 15 dollars an hour that we have got to create millions of decent paying jobs by rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure So what my first days are about is bringing American together to end the decline of the middle class to tell the wealthiest people in this country that yes they are gonna start paying their fair share of taxes and that we are going to have a government that works for all of us and not just big campaign contributors HOLT: Secretary Clinton same question My first 100 days in office my top 3 priorities will be: CLINTON: I would work quickly to present to the congress my plans for creating more good jobs and manufacturing infrastructure clean and renewable energy raising the minimum wage and guaranteeing finally equal pay for womens work I would also I would also be presenting my plans to build on the Affordable Care Act and to improve it by decreasing the out of pocket costs by putting a cap on prescription drug costs by looking for ways that we can put the prescription drug business and the health insurance company business on a more stable platform that doesnt take too much money out of the pockets of hard working Americans And third I would be working in every way that I knew to bring our country together We do have too much division too much mean spiritedness Theres a lot we have to do on immigration reform on voting rights on campaign finance reform but we need to do it together Thats how well have the kind of country for the 21st century that we know will guarantee our children and grandchildren the kind of future they deserve LESTER HOLT: 09:08:55:00 Governor OMalley same question MARTIN OMALLEY: 09:08:58:00 Thank you First of all I would lay out an agenda to make wages go up again for all Americans rather than down Equal pay for equal work Making it easier rather than harder for people to join labor unions and bargain collectively for better wages Getting 11 million of our neighbors out of the underground shadow economy by passing comprehensive immigration reform Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour however we can wherever we can 09:09:23:00 Secondly I believe the greatest business opportunity to come to the United States of America in 100 years is climate change And I put forward a plan to move us to a 100% clean electric energy grid by 2050 and create five million jobs along the way (CHEERING) Thank you LESTER HOLT: 09:09:42:00 So youve all MARTIN OMALLEY: 09:09:43:00 Im sorry that was second Lester And third and finally we need a new agenda for Americas cities We have not had a new agenda for Americas cities since Jimmy Carter (APPLAUSE) We need a new agenda for Americas cities that will invest in the talents and the skills of our people that will invest in CBBG transportation infrastructure and transit options and make our cities the leading edge in this move to a redesigned built clean green energy future that will employ our people LESTER HOLT: 09:10:08:00 All right Governor thank you (APPLAUSE) Youve all laid out large visions and were gonna cover a lot of the ground you talked about as we continue in the evening The last couple of weeks of this campaign have featured some of the sharpest exchanges in the race Lets start with one of em the issue of guns Senator Sanders last week Secretary Clinton called you quote a pretty reliable vote for the gun lobby Right before the debate you change your position on immunity from lawsuits for gun manufacturers Can you tell us why BERNIE SANDERS: 09:10:36:00 Well I think Secretary Clinton knows that what she says is very disingenuous I have a D minus voting record from the NRA I was in 1988 there were three candidates running for Congress in the state of Vermont I stood up to the gun lobby and came out and maintained the position that in this country we should not be selling military style assault weapons 09:11:01:00 I have supported from day one an instant background check to make certain that people who should not have guns do not have guns And that includes people with criminal backgrounds people who are mentally unstable I support what President Obama is doing in terms of trying to close the gun show loopholes 09:11:23:00 And I think it should be a federal crime if people act (UNINTEL) We have seen in this city a horrendous tragedy of a crazed person praying with people and then coming out and shooting nine people This should not be a political issue What we should be doing is working together And by the way as a senator from a rural state that has virtually no gun control I believe that I am in an excellent position to bring people together to LESTER HOLT: 09:11:53:00 Senator 09:11:53:00 (OVERTALK) BERNIE SANDERS: 09:11:54:00 provide a sensible 09:11:56:00 (OVERTALK) LESTER HOLT: 09:11:57:00 you didnt answer the question that you did change your (CHEERING) position on immunity for gun manufacturers BERNIE SANDERS: 09:12:00:00 What I LESTER HOLT: 09:12:01:00 so can you can you answer the BERNIE SANDERS: 09:12:01:00 what I have said 09:12:03:00 (OVERTALK) BERNIE SANDERS: 09:12:04:00 is that the m gun manufacturers liability bill had some good provisions Among other things we prohibited ammunition that would have killed cops who had protection on We had child safety protection on guns in that legislation And what we also said is a small mom and pop gun shop who sells a gun legally to somebody should not be held libel if somebody does s something terrible with that gun LESTER HOLT: 09:12:35:00 So BERNIE SANDERS: 09:12:36:00 What I would say is that I would relook at it We are gonna relook at it And I will support stronger () provisions LESTER HOLT: 09:12:41:00 Secretary Clinton would you like to respond to Senator Sanders HILLARY CLINTON: 09:12:43:00 Yes Look I I have made it clear based on Senator Sanders own record that he has voted with the NRA, “I have successfully.

our country can easily stake their claim for a patent on double-speak This phenomenon has been slowly corroding the foundation of our democratic system for a while now However it becomes disturbingly pronounced during the time of elections And unfortunately we are in the midst of one in the immediate aftermath of the announcement of Assembly election results in five states The dichotomy between the words and the actions of the political class has stopped baffling conscious citizens of the country long back But it has never stopped enraging them Let us take the example of the results of the recent state elections Clarity of the verdict in respect of Uttar Pradesh Uttarakhand and Punjab has severely restricted the scope of political maneuvering At the same time fractured mandates in Goa and Manipur have created a fertile ground for some ‘smart’ politicians to tweak the verdict in their favour overturning certain ethos on which any democratic republic has long been thought to be premised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech at the BJP headquarters on 12 March adequately amplifies that dichotomy There is no denying the fact that Modi is a powerful and riveting speaker He can connect to a vast majority of the electorate quite effortlessly by adroitly employing a new vocabulary containing both earthy touch and rhetorical flourish He deserves credit for changing the very grammar of electioneering in the country especially from the campaigning stage of the 2014 parliamentary election But one’s strength may not always be able cover all the warts And the warts are not few to say the least It is pretty difficult to find fault with prime minister’s victory speech on Sunday as he did not veer away from the path of political correctness His emphasis on the need to work harder accepting victory in humility and reiterating that the newly elected state governments would be for all the citizens (and not for the people who voted them to power) are like music to the ears provided these words are analyzed on a stand-alone basis But once an objective analysis is attempted in the light of a politically important event the music turns slightly jarring Newly sworn-in Manipur Chief Minister Nongthombam Biren Singh with Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal at the swearing-in ceremony in Imphal PTI The rapidly emerging political scenario in the state of Manipur after the declaration of the election results was a pointer to that direction I find it extremely difficult to reconcile the exhortation of the prime minister for a corruption free India with what might have possibly happened in Manipur during the course of the recent election The moot question is — in their over enthusiasm for a Congress-free India has BJP added further layers to the nasty game of horse-trading spearheaded by Congress not very long ago If the answer to the above question is positive should we be surprised at the fact that the iron lady of Manipur Irom Sharmila got only ninety votes in her maiden electoral fight against the political heavyweight Okram Ibobi Singh of Congress During her 16 year long relentless struggle demanding the withdrawal of the draconian Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act from the ‘disturbed’ Manipur she had thousands of supporters many of whom were very keen to be seen as champions of human rights in those turbulent days It is ironical that some of her earlier ‘cheerleaders’ are now alleged to be involved in certain undesirable political activities which are totally inimical to the growth of proper democratic ethos On 15 March Nongthombam Biren Singh took oath as the 24th chief minister of Manipur It is interesting to note that 56-year-old N Biren Singh (as he is popularly known) is a national football player-turned-journalist-turned-politician and more importantly he was a close confidante of the earlier chief minister Okram Ibobi Singh He left Congress and joined BJP only in October 2016 Shyamkumar who defected to BJP only a few days back after winning the election on a Congress ticket was also inducted as a cabinet minister throwing all norms of propriety to the wind Keenly observing the development many people have a question on their lips — is this the right way of purging the country of the Congress By changing the political loyalty for their own vested interests can a person change the age-old mindset associated with the party But unfortunately very few powerful politicians seem to have time and inclination to answer this kind of uncomfortable question In the recent Manipur election despite facing huge anti-incumbency sentiments Congress got 28 seats missing the magic number by 3 in the 60 member assembly Congress has been in power in the state since 2002 However their vote share declined from 424 percent to 351 percent in the current election On the other hand BJP got just 21 seats but their vote share saw a dramatic jump from 2 percent in the 2012 election to 363 percent in this election The fact that BJP trumped Congress on vote share percentage was very cleverly underlined by the party to bestow legitimacy to their efforts in forming the government This in turn has underlined the duplicity of the party in respect of adopting a moral high ground by the top leaders and doing just the contrary by its second rung leaders solely dictated by political expediency The support extended to BJP by National People’s Party (NPP) and Naga People’s Front (NFP) who got 4 seats each is not surprising as both the parties are part of NEDA (North East Democratic Alliance) NEDA was formed by BJP immediately after the Assam assembly election of 2016 with the powerful Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma as its convenor The objective of NEDA is to ensure a Congress free North East Its first success was Arunachal Pradesh Sarma who masterminded and micro-managed the political events in Manipur has undoubtedly earned many brownie points in the eyes of the BJP central leadership But with Congress MLA Shyamkumar’s post-election defection to BJP and the news that another half a dozen Congress MLAs may switch loyalty amplifies the crisis plaguing our democracy These leaders brusquely talk about their desire to go to polls again if their earlier elections are rendered null and void under anti-defection law But they forget about the huge cost it imposes on common taxpayers There is a need for building up an academic debate to decide about the inclusion of the provision of ‘Right to Recall’ in our statue books in order to make the republic more robust At least the recent political events in the small state of Manipur clearly highlight the need for that debate on an urgent basis But whether India would be receptive to this idea or not is a matter which would be watched with abiding interest by many But before that happens it can be safely concluded that what has recently been magnified by the Manipur election is certainly not very magnificent for the nation Apple stock dipped more than 4% on Wednesday just a few days before a Sept 9 event where the company is widely expected to unveil the iPhone 6 The tech giants shares closed

centers out to the countryside and eventually to ancient ruins No corner of the country has been spared Hundreds of thousands have been killed and millions have fled internally crossed into neighboring countries or Europe exacerbating a global refugee crisis A cease-fire between the government and opposition factions hangs in the balance six months after Russia officially entered this intractable fray to support President Bashar AssadMagnum photographer Lorenzo Meloni who for years has documented the grind of war and its toll on civilians fighters and their surroundings recently returned from a weeklong trip inside Syria Based in Paris but often in Beirut he obtained a visa and after arriving to Damascus on March 26 soon ventured out to three major cities — Aleppo Homs and PalmyraRelatedPalmyraSee the Palmyra We Can Never Get BackPalmyraSee the Palmyra We Can Never Get BackIn Aleppo he observed the mourning of a government soldier who died fighting ISIS and photographed internally displaced men women and children living in a former university building that was converted into a refugee center by a Syrian aid group He stood in the city’s famous souk one of six UNESCO World Heritage Sites around Syria that have all been damaged—not solely by jihadists In one surreal scene he watched the protestant vicar’s wife use a selfie stick to take photos of the congregation gathered outside the new church as part of the Easter celebrationsThe city has two sides: the sections that have retained an essence of normalcy—“it still feels like you’re in a warzone but a different kind” Meloni says—and their counterparts the war-torn areas have been so bombed and shelled that the mind struggles to understand how it can be rebuilt In this two-faced city Meloni says “most people have lost at least one relative in this war”In Homs Meloni saw streets and districts that had been bombed-out like in the Bab Amr district where the February 2012 shelling of a makeshift media center in an opposition-held area killed journalist Marie Colvin an American working with London’s Sunday Times and French photographer Remí Ochlik Some families displaced by the war had taken refuge in the shell of a school or returned to their own half-collapsed homes Flowers had been painted on the shell-ridden exterior of one buildingDuring this trip Meloni received permission from the Syrian government to enter Palmyra the city in central Syria that has recently been recaptured from ISIS after 10 months Palmyra’s ancient ruins are among the world’s most coveted cultural sites Meloni and a handful of journalists got there early in the morning and left in the evening spending the day shadowing government forces and seeing what remained of the ancient site“We arrived at a very important moment” he says “The first thing that the commander wanted to get across was the importance of commemorating the fighters who died there”From the hilltop citadel Meloni observed smoke rise from the modern city where he was told bomb disposal teams were detonating booby traps and mines—ISIS parting gifts He photographed Syrian soldiers at the amphitheater where ISIS militants conducted executions and watched them traipse around the new ruins of the ancient ruins “Before being there I was really afraid that everything was destroyed” he says “After we arrived I saw that many of the [structures] had survived” Among the losses was the Temple of Bel reduced to a sole portico above a bed of rubbleThe Tetrapylon in Syria’s ancient city of Palmyra 2009Peter Aaron—OTTO The Tetrapylon in Syria’s ancient city of Palmyra 2009Peter Aaron—OTTO1 of 10He found statues that had been defaced and ancient columns which despite weathering empires had been felled He stood near the fountain where ISIS showed off the decapitated body of Palmyra’s octogenarian antiquities scholar and top local preservationistTeju Cole the photography critic of The New York Times Magazine put it best in a column last October He wrote that a temple “as a record of both human skill and emotion is already a site of memory; when its only remaining trace is a photograph that photograph becomes a memorial to a memory” It is that photograph he continues that is “shadowed by its vanished ancestor”This notion is not limited to ruins of ancient times It can be applied to the living and the dead and the numbing destruction in parts of Aleppo and Homs that Meloni shows us in his pictures—in this evidenceLorenzo Meloni is a Paris-based photographer represented by Magnum PhotosAlice Gabriner TIME’s international photo editor and Andrew Katz TIME’s international multimedia editor edited this photo essayIDEAS Kluger is Editor at Large for TIME You’d think the end of the world would be enough to get us scared Humans have always been an exceedingly risk-averse specieswhich is how we came to survive as a species at all If there are lions on one part of the savannah we go to another If crocodiles keep coming out of the river we fish somewhere else So when it comes to the loss of the entire planet well we ought to take action And yet we don’t; we never do That odd contradiction is on display again in the wake of an announcement by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that a catastrophe is nighthat that distant future of an Earth best by floods droughts wildfires and typhoons isn’t distant anymore but as little as 12 years away Unless we act dramatically and fast the report says by 2030 temperatures will have risen to 27 F (15 C) above the average of the pre-industrial erathe threshold that has long been cited as the tipping point for calamity And while the announcement has been reported widely the public reactionagain as alwayshas been meh Volumes of research have been published over the decades trying to explain how and why we so often miscalculate riskover-preparing for things that are not likely to hurt us and ignoring or shrugging off the things that are The bad news for environmental scientists and policymakers trying to wake the public up to the perils we face is that climate change checks almost every one of our ignore-the-problem boxes For starters it lacks the absolutely critical componentthe “me” component “Nobody wakes up in the morning and looks at the longterm climate forecast” says David Ropeik an international consultant on risk perception and communication formerly with the Harvard School of Public Health “They ask what the weather is today where I live and how it’s going to affect me” That’s sensible as far as it goes Immediate concerns will always trump eventual concernswhich is one more trick of species survival But when it comes to climate change even when we do try to think long-term a lot of things get in the way Paramount among them is that climate action requires a lot of right-now sacrifice for a down-the-line payoff “When it comes to acting on problems the lure of our current comforts and conveniences will often cause us to act contrary to our values” says Paul Slovic University or Oregon psychologist and the president of Decision Research and international group of investigators who study decision-making and risk “If we think the consequences are far in the future we tend to discount the risk People just aren’t going to inconvenience themselves unless they’re forced to” Indeed even when the risk is not far in the futurewhen say a hurricane is cannonballing toward the coast and the government orders an evacuationplenty of people still don’t budge Here what’s known as the optimism bias is at work Other people may need to make tracks but your storm windows are top-of-the-line or your house is on slightly higher ground so why get off the couch If we find it so easy to talk ourselves out of acting in the face of a storm that’s just days away a disaster that’s many years away doesn’t stand a chance We establish that kind of distance from risk not just temporally but geographically and culturally If you live in an inland region well the floods are going to inundate the suckers on the coast not you If you live on the coast it’s the south coast that’s going to get hit and you live north And developed nations like the US are typically going to be able to deal with climate instability better than developing ones which allows us to conclude that while disasters happen elsewhere they don’t happen here “The question is often ‘Do I feel vulnerable’” says Slovic “For the most part we don’t and that shapes our behavior” Even when we do try to personalize things we have a hard time doing it We can picture what it would be like to get eaten by a shark Ropeik says or die in a mass shooting or an airplane crash That leads us to over-prepare for those risksarming teachers avoiding the beach driving instead of flying even though driving is manifestly more dangerous “But if you ask even the most devout climate change believers how they think it’s going to affect them they often can’t quite describe it” he says If it’s hard to picture it’s easy to ignore Finally there’s a sense of futilitythe inefficacy factor as risk experts put it Climate change is a huge problemarguably the biggest of all problemsand that makes individual action seem awfully pointless “We reason that we can curtail things we want to dolike driving or flying” says Slovic “but if other people aren’t going to do it it’s not going to make any difference” Of course every great human enterprise has called on people not to do things they want to do or to do things they don’tpaying taxes volunteering for military service tolerating rationing in time of war None of it is fun none of it is easy but all of it has helped ensure the success of the larger human project and the survival of the next generations If we can’t bestir ourselves now in the face of yet another alarming report from the climate change scientists we’re going to owe those generations an explanationand an apology Write to Jeffrey Kluger at jeffrey_kluger@timemagazinecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news society and culture We welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editorsThis month marks the second anniversary of Pope Francis election The following is taken from THE FRANCIS MIRACLE: Inside the Transformation of the Pope and the Church by John L Allen Jr Nowhere is the contrast between Benedict XVI and Francis more tangible than in the degree to which the papacy seems to have recovered its diplomatic and geopolitical swagger The normalization of relations between the US and Cuba in December 2014 came about in part thanks to Francis who wrote private letters to President Obama and Cuban president Raúl Castro that reportedly helped break the ice between the two leaders "Francis is not resigned to a passive vision of world affairs" said Marco Impagliazzo president of the Rome-based Community of SantEgidio a Catholic organization active in conflict resolution and peace brokering in a 2014 interview "We must prepare for a new age of political audacity for the Holy See" Massimo Franco is one of Italys most respected journalists a veteran reporter who has covered all of Italys political figures of the late 20th century He believes that Francis is potentially even more crucial a political actor than John Paul II who mobilized the solidarity movement and set the dominoes in motion that led to the collapse of communism in Central and Eastern Europe "By virtue of being Polish John Paul was hugely important for the fate of communism and for the reunification of Europe" Franco said in 2014 "As the first pope from the developing world Francis is important for every major issue facing the world today: poverty the environment immigration and war" While Francis clearly wants to deploy whatever influence he can to promote peace the pontiff is selective about how and how often he wades into conflicts His first real test came over Syria In August 2013 after President Bashar al-Assads regime was believed to have carried out a sarin chemical attack on opposition areas near the capital Damascus Western leaders began trying to foster public support for the use of military force US Secretary of State John Kerry said "History would judge us all extraordinarily harshly if we turned a blind eye" while President Barack Obama put Congress on notice that he was weighing a "limited narrow" attack As the first pope from the developing world Francis feels a special responsibility to listen carefully to what he calls the "peripheries" the places outside the usual Western centers of power That summer he was therefore determined to consult Syrias Christian leadership before reacting Christians are an important minority in Syria composing about 10 percent of the population of 225 million The majority is Greek Orthodox followed by Catholics the Assyrian Church of the East and various kinds of Protestants The leaders of those churches told the pope both in writing and during face-to-face encounters in Rome that forcing Assad from power was a recipe for disaster As they saw it if Assad fell Islamic radicals would most likely fill the voidthe choice for Syria is not between a police state and a democracy but between a police state and annihilation Most Syrian Christians recognize that Assad is a thug but believe that the alternative is even worse That judgment was confirmed in the summer of 2014 when forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant proclaimed a caliphate in northern Iraq driving tens of thousands of Christians and minority Yazidis from their homes and beheading a pair of American journalists and a British aid worker Francis has made clear that the crisis in Syria is a deep concern He used his first Urbi et Orbi ("to the city and the world") message on Easter Sunday 2013 to invoke prayer "for dear Syria for its people torn by conflict and for the many refugees who await help and comfort" "How much blood has been shed" Francis said that day "How much suffering must there still be before a political solution to the crisis will be found" In private Francis stressed during meetings with the Vaticans diplomatic team that he wanted updates from religious orders and other Catholic groups on the situation on the ground in Syria and told his brain trust that he planned to oppose expanding the conflict in Syria in every way he could The Vatican swung into action even dispatching anti-war messages through the popes Twitter account Although Syria was not the only crisis percolating Francis felt a special urgency about getting involved because of the precedent of Iraq At the time of the first US-led Gulf War there were an estimated 15 to 2 million Christians in Iraq Although they were second-class citizens under Saddam Hussein they were basically secure Husseins most visible international mouthpiece former foreign minister and deputy prime minister Tariq Aziz was himself a Chaldean Catholic Today up to 400000 Christians are thought to be remaining in the country but many believe the real number is lower as Islamic radicals have had a free hand in targeting the Christian minority Francis was determined not to stand by while another Christian community in the Middle East suffered the same fate Looking back at John Paul IIs vain efforts to stop the Iraq offensive in 2003 which included dispatching personal envoys to both Sadaam Hussein and President George W Bush in February and March of that year Francis felt the intervention had been too political It failed in Franciss eyes to draw on whats most distinctive about the papacy as a global force: its spiritual capacity So Francis opted to do something only a religious leader could do: he called a global day of prayer and fasting for peace in Syria on Sept 7 2013 inviting the worlds 12 billion Catholics as well as all women and men of goodwill to help him storm heaven with prayer When darkness fell in Rome that evening Pope Francis stepped out into St Peters Square to preside over a five-hour prayer service designed specifically for the Syria campaign The Vatican estimated the global television audience for the service to be in the hundreds of millions Thousands of Catholic parishes and other venues staged their own prayer services that day too Its not clear how much credit Francis can claim for halting the initial rush to declare war against Assad Before Francis stepped out into the square that evening support for Western strikes in Syria was already beginning to erode UK Prime Minister David Cameron had already lost a vote in the House of Commons seeking support to join the US in military action and French President François Hollande was softening his earlier bellicose rhetoric Nonetheless the popes stance was given wide play in the Arab media and when he visited the Middle East in May 2014 Syrian Christian refugees in Jordan brandished signs thanking the pontiff for "saving our country" In June 2014 Francis made an even riskier and more audacious diplomatic foray: an invitation to the presidents of Israel and Palestine to pray for peace in the Vatican in an effort to revive the stalled peace process The invitation was a result of Franciss May 2014 trip to Jordan Israel and the Palestinian territories the region known to Christians as the Holy Land The visit crystallized Franciss reputation as a pope of surprises because it was punctuated by moments that veered off script and left the popes advisers scrambling to keep up The shocks began on May 25 when Francis called on Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem Afterward the pontiff was scheduled to proceed to Bethlehems Manger Square to celebrate mass for the citys dwindling Christian population His route for the short drive took him immediately next to the massive 26-foot-high barrier separating Israel from the West Bank known as the "security fence" by Israelis and the "apartheid wall" by Palestinians At a certain point and with no advance warning to anyone Francis asked his driver to stop and pull over There was a moments delay as his security team scrambled to get into position and then the pope got out walked over to a portion of the wall where "Free Palestine" had been graffitied and paused for about five minutes of silent prayer At the end Francis placed his hands on the wall and leaned in until his forehead came to rest then made the sign of the cross It became the most powerful visual of the trip and was almost universally taken as a gesture of solidarity with Palestinian suffering While it was happening a visibly flustered Vatican spokesman an Italian Jesuit named Fr Federico Lombardi was madly thumbing his BlackBerry Lombardi knew that the stop at the wall was political dynamite and was desperately trying to invent a nonpartisan way to frame it Later that day Lombardi told reporters that Francis wasnt taking sides but was simply expressing a biblical lament "The pope thinks like a prophet" Lombardi said "He imagines a day when a wall wont be necessary to keep these two peoples apart This was not a statement about the present political situation" In a sense Lombardi and other Vatican officials trying to spin the stop at the wall lucked out because two hours later the pope supplied an even more startling storyline when he announced that he had invited both Abbas and Israeli President Shimon Peres to join him for a prayer for peace "in my house" Both leaders swiftly accepted the invitation and the date was set for June 8 In the run-up the Vatican did everything it could to lower expectations "Anybody who has even a minimum understanding of the situation would never think that as of Monday peace will break out" said Fr Pierbattista Pizzaballa a Franciscan priest based in the Middle East who organized the event The popes lone ambition he said was to "open a path" that was previously closed Peres and Abbas arrived separately at the popes residence at the Domus Santa Marta where each had a brief private moment with the pontiff Francis and his guests were then joined by Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople with TV cameras capturing the four men exchanging embraces and kisses They proceeded to the Vatican gardens chosen as the setting because they contain no obvious Christian symbolism and took part in a service that featured scriptural readings and prayers for peace from Judaism Islam and Christianity Franciss message was brief but forceful "Peacemaking calls for courage much more so than warfare" he said Only the tenacious he argued "say yes to encounter and no to conflict; yes to negotiations and no to hostilities; yes to respect for agreements and no to acts of provocation" With the benefit of hindsight the peace prayer seemed to carry three layers of significance First it pioneered a new channel of backdoor diplomacy under the cover of religious piety Second it solidified a Vatican recipe for making prayer with followers of other religions theologically acceptable Whenever popes staged such events in the past there was always blowback from traditionalists who grumbled that such exercises promote the idea that all religions are equal amounting to a sort of New Age sacrilege This time there was no single moment of joint prayer but rather separate prayers for Jews Muslims and Christians Organizers insisted that the leaders were not "praying together" but instead "coming together to pray" Third the fact that Francis invited Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople to join the summit has ecumenical importance because it signifies that it wasnt just a papal undertaking but a broader Christian project It also suggests that in the future the pope will look to build ecumenical coalitions behind his peace initiatives By now Francis has demonstrated how he wants to engage the world as a peace pope He approaches conflicts in a uniquely spiritual fashion He wants to rely on the resources of faithprayer and fasting invocations of the sacred texts of the worlds great religions and popular devotions and religious observances In his eyes its not only the appropriate way for a pope to exert his influence its also good politics Many of the worlds bloodiest conflicts have a clear religious subtext which means that a spiritual leader can engage them in a fashion that no secular diplomat could The Francis brand of diplomacy is premised on personal relationships American Catholic writer David Gibson refers to this one-on-one style as the "Francis doctrine" citing the popes remarks immediately after his return from the Holy Land that peace is not mass-produced but "handcrafted" every day by individuals This artisanal approach runs through the popes peace efforts Francis felt emboldened to invite Peres and Abbas because he had established a personal rapport with both leaders during previous encounters in the Vatican He brought Skorka and Abboud along to the Middle East not just because theyre well-established points of reference in interfaith dialogue but because theyre old friends He has set up Bartholomew I of Constantinople as his geopolitical partner not just because hes a prominent Orthodox leader but because the two men clearly like and respect each other In the future its reasonable to expect that Francis will pick where to deploy his political capital in part based on where he has developed personal ties Excerpted from THE FRANCIS MIRACLE: Inside the Transformation of the Pope and the Church by John L Allen Jr.
