Flurry of M&A provides Xmas cheer for traders

first_imgMonday 13 December 2010 9:36 pm Share BRITISH companies led a whirlwind of buyout deals yesterday, in a sign of emerging confidence in the M&A market ahead of the Christmas break. London-listed household goods group Reckitt Benckiser bagged privately-held personal care company Paras Pharmaceuticals for around $726m (£460m) yesterday, while oil services firm Wellstream finally agreed to be taken over by General Electric for £800m, pending shareholder approval. Also in the oil services sector, Wood Group shares rose 6.7 per cent after it shelled out $955m to buy out unlisted Scottish rival PSN in a deal which will make Scottish entrepreneur Tom Hunter around £30m. UK chemicals maker Yule Catto said yesterday it plans to spend €443m (£376m) on latex producer PolymerLatex, which it hopes to finance with a £225 rights issue. Elsewhere, pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline spent £162m on Maxinutrition, a privately owned protein drinks firm. News of the deals helped lift the markets, with the FTSE 100 gaining 0.8 per cent to close at 5860.75. “There are a lot more pre-emptive approaches this year, for particular assets or unlisted companies, that are definitely a sign of confidence in the market,” said Neil Sutton, head of corporate finance at PricewaterhouseCoopers. However, Allen & Overy head of corporate Andrew Ballheimer said: “Nobody will be getting carried away on the back of a few deals being announced simultaneously.” He added: “M&A activity is likely to remain patchy, as it has been throughout the fourth quarter, as long as doubts about the euro and sovereign debt linger.” KCS-content More From Our Partners Inside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Show Comments ▼center_img whatsapp Flurry of M&A provides Xmas cheer for traders by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Has the new bull market arrived? A US share I’d buy and aim to hold ‘til 2030

first_imgHas the new bull market arrived? A US share I’d buy and aim to hold ‘til 2030 Royston Wild | Monday, 15th February, 2021 | More on: APTV Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Royston Wild Could we finally be on the cusp of a new bull market for UK and US shares? The successful rollout of Covid-19 vaccines (especially in Britain) is giving investor confidence a bump in start-of-week trading. This is boosting hopes that the global economy will experience a robust rebound in the second half of 2021.Global share markets are also rising on signs that central banks and governments the world over will keep printing money to aid the recovery. There are clearly reasons, then, for stock investors to be optimistic on this slightly-less-chilly Monday morning. But it’s too early to say that the new bull market has begun in earnest, in my opinion.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The UK share price rally that kicked off in early 2021 evaporated as quickly as it began. And the factors that forced the last rally to fizzle out — namely the emergence of Covid-19 variants and Brexit-related concerns — remain very much in play in mid-February.Electric dreamsAptiv (NYSE: APTV) is a US share I think can deliver big profits in 2021 whatever happens to the broader global economy. In fact, I’d buy this US share with the aim of holding it for at least a decade.Not even a colossal economic downturn could derail rising demand for electric vehicles (EVs) last year. In Britain alone, a whopping 108,000 EVs rolled out of showrooms in 2020, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). This was up more than 180% from 2019 levels. And this bodes well for companies that make these new-age vehicles, the components to get them rolling, and the infrastructure to power them up like Aptiv.This particular US share provides the architecture that makes cars safer, greener, and better connected. There’s another reason why I like this auto specialist too. It’s an expert in the field of autonomous cars, another hot growth market for this new decade.A top US growth share? EV sales could take a hit if governments pull financial incentives for the purchase of low-carbon vehicles, or make them less generous. The Covid-19 crisis is putting huge strain on government spending all over the globe. And this could hit green schemes like this, too, which could in turn reduce demand for Aptiv’s products. Rising investment in hydrogen poses a long-term risk to EVs as well.Things are looking good for the moment, however. Indeed, global car manufacturers are boosting spending on EVs as they leave fossil fuel-powered vehicles behind. Today Jaguar Land Rover announced that luxury brand Jaguar will become an all-electric manufacturer from 2025.City analysts reckon Aptiv’s earnings will soar 113% in 2021. They believe, too, that annual earnings will rise an extra 32% next year. These projections leave the company trading on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 40 times. This reading is toppy on paper and is certainly not guaranteed. But I think it’s a reading that’s a fair reflection of the US share’s bright long-term earnings outlook.

Free Ana Belén Montes now!

first_imgPuerto Rican Juan Rius Rivera Brigade of the Cuba Solidarity Committee during their last trip to Cuba, carrying a banner calling for the release of Oscar Lopez and Ana Belén Montes.Ana Belén Montes is a Puerto Rican woman facing a 25-year prison sentence for passing information to Cuban intelligence agencies. She has already served 15 years in the Psychiatric Unit Detention Center at the Federal Medical Center, Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas.Montes was charged with conspiracy to commit espionage, a penalty generally paid with death. Her defense team was able to reach a “lesser” penalty, which in itself has buried her alive due to extreme conditions of isolation. She cannot receive visits, email or calls or use a computer. There are only a small number of people to whom she has access, including her mother.There is now an extremely urgent situation. Ana was diagnosed with breast cancer and a few days ago underwent a mastectomy, after which she will receive chemotherapy. Given her isolation, the extent of the cancer or even where the surgery was performed is not known.Admirable workUnknown to many people, this woman is the very image of immense generosity and sacrifice.What was her crime? Here we could repeat that famous quote from Che, the internationalist, who said that “the true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love … love of humanity, of justice.” It was that deep love of justice which led Ana Belén to prison.In these days, when there is a renewed effort by Cuba and millions of people in solidarity with the Cuban Revolution to end once and for all the criminal U.S. blockade against Cuba, it is imperative to remember the sacrifice this Boricua woman made to benefit millions of Cuban lives.Nothing illustrates this desire for justice more than her statement to the court that condemned her on Oct. 16, 2002: “I engaged in the activity that brought me before you because I obeyed my conscience rather than the law. I believe our government’s policy toward Cuba is cruel and unfair, profoundly unneighborly, and I felt morally obligated to help the island defend itself from our efforts to impose our values and our political system on it.“We have displayed intolerance and contempt toward Cuba for most of the last four decades. We have never respected Cuba’s right to make its own journey towards its own ideals of equality and justice. I do not understand why we must continue to dictate how the Cubans should select their leaders, who their leaders cannot be, and what laws are appropriate in their land. Why can’t we let Cuba pursue its own internal journey, as the United States has been doing for over two centuries?”Interestingly, the end of her statement is similar to President Obama’s announcement regarding U.S.-Cuba relations in December 2014. Montes stated, “My greatest desire is to see amicable relations emerge between the United States and Cuba. I hope my case in some way will encourage our government to abandon its hostility towards Cuba and to work with Havana in a spirit of tolerance, mutual respect, and understanding.”Montes’ work did not pose a risk to the U.S. or its “national security.” On the contrary, it prevented hostile U.S. military operations against Cuba that would have cost thousands of lives, from both Cuba and the U.S. The information Ana Belén passed to Cuba was solely so that nation could defend itself.The work she performed for 16 years was completely voluntary; she was not pressured, nor did she receive — nor accept — a penny for this great sacrifice. It is such a noble example that the U.S. authorities have only been able to describe it as madness, locking her in a psychiatric prison.A book written by none other than Scott Carmichael illustrates her devotion. Carmichael worked at the Defense Intelligence Agency, the same agency where Ana Belén worked as a senior analyst on Cuba. This agency advises the president, the Pentagon and the Joint Chiefs of Staff and has great influence on their actions. Carmichael was a counterintelligence investigator — a “mole hunter” — who was in charge of investigating Ana.In his book, “True Believer,” you can perceive the meticulous work and sacrifice of this brave woman. Although the book’s purpose was not to create sympathy, it is impossible not to feel admiration and respect for her.Solidarity with AnaSolidarity with Ana Belén Montes has grown in the last year, with the strongest organizing in Cuba and Puerto Rico. Support has also been expanding internationally, particularly in Brazil, where groups in solidarity with Cuba have picked up the banner of Ana Belén. People supporting her release have written to Obama, like Irish Nobel Prize winner Mairead Maguire and Cuban troubadour Vicente Feliú.There have also been voices of support for her release in the United States, France, Argentina, Chile, Galicia and the Dominican Republic. Progressive U.S. songwriter David Rovics wrote “Song for Ana,” which you can watch at Cuba, known personalities such as Silvio Rodríguez have called for her release. Several groups, including CubaXAnaBelénMontes, held a concert last September to commemorate the 15 years she has been in prison.On Oct. 21, René Gonzalez, one of the heroic Cuban Five, wrote an open letter asking that people write to Ana: “Ana Belén Montes, the courageous Puerto Rican woman imprisoned for protecting Cuba from the U.S. policies of aggression, has been operated [on] because of breast cancer. … Although she is not allowed to receive mail, the message of thousands of letters arriving to her prison door would surely be a powerful one. Please join in this effort and write a letter or a postcard to Ana.”That message echoes the previous one that Ana’s cousin, Miriam Montes Mock, made through the Working Committee for Ana Belén Montes in Puerto Rico: “I ask all my friends to send their messages to President Obama at [email protected], the U.S. Prisons Authority, to Carswell Prison at crw/[email protected], showing your concern for the health of Ana and demand her release, ask for a compassionate release.“I ask you to send a copy of your messages to the Five Heroes Network ([email protected]) so that they circulate through the network and see if we can somehow get them to Ana, so she can see that she is not alone and that hundreds, thousands of people in Cuba and in the world accompany this struggle for life and freedom.”To write to Ana:ANA BELÉN MONTES 25037-016FMC CARSWELLFEDERAL MEDICAL CENTERP.O.

Ban on quoting foreign media reports without permission

first_img ChinaAsia – Pacific Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes News RSF_en Read in Chinese / 看中文Reporters Without Borders roundly condemns the draconian directive that China’s media regulator –¬ the General Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television – issued yesterday banning the Chinese media from using unauthorized information from foreign media and websites.“This directive marks a new stage in the reinforcement of censorship, which has been increasing steadily since the Communist Party’s 18th Congress last November,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The censors have had the foreign media in their sights ever since they published embarrassing revelations about China’s leaders. The regime is trying to prevent the Chinese media from repeating such revelations. “The initiative seems bound to fail in the era of Weibo and social networks, where information and revelations from the foreign media circulate like wildfire. But it could be used to justify new acts of censorship and could therefore have an impact on the Chinese media, which often quote international news agency reports in particular.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The international media continue to play a key role both in informing the international community about what is happening in China, and in informing the Chinese public, which is the victim of the government’s growing censorship of the local media.”According to the directive, “all kinds of media work units may not use any unauthorized news products provided by the foreign media or foreign websites.” They are also forbidden to use information provided by “news informants, freelancers, NGOs or commercial organisations” without “prior verification.” A report on the directive published yesterday by China Press and Publishing Journal, an offshoot of the media regulator, urged the media to “strengthen the management” of their websites, blogs and micro-blogs, both professional and private.The directive was issued the same day that the New York Times was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for its October 2012 exclusive on the fortune amassed by former Prime Minister Wen Jiabao’s family.The newspaper’s revelations were censored in China and its journalists’ email accounts were the targets of cyber-attacks aimed at identifying their sources. The authorities also blocked searches for “Wen Jiabao” and “New York Times” on the micro-blogging site Sina Weibo.The Bloomberg news agency’s website was blocked on 25 June 2012 after it ran a story about the fortune held by the family of Xi Jinping, who has since become president. The BBC World Service announced on 25 February 2013 that the shortwave broadcasts of its English-language service had been jammed in China. At the same time, several foreign journalists including Melissa Chan and Chris Buckley have had problems obtaining visas.China is ranked 173rd out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Canada extradites one of newspaper editor’s killers to Mozambique

first_img News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Help by sharing this information Organisation Mozambique: Case of missing Mozambican journalist referred to UN Reporters Without Borders today welcomed Canada’s extradition to Mozambique of one of the convicted killers of Carlos Cardoso (photo), the editor of the daily Metical. Anibal “Anibalzinho” Antonio dos Santos Junior escaped from Maputo high security prison last May and was arrested a few days later by Interpol on his arrival in Toronto, where he requested political asylum. November 27, 2020 Find out more News Follow the news on Mozambique January 25, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Canada extradites one of newspaper editor’s killers to Mozambique Receive email alerts MozambiqueAfrica MozambiqueAfrica July 3, 2020 Find out more Reports Reporters Without Borders today welcomed Canada’s extradition to Mozambique of one of the convicted killers of Carlos Cardoso, the editor of the daily Metical. Anibal “Anibalzinho” Antonio dos Santos Junior escaped from Maputo high security prison last May and was arrested a few days later by Interpol on his arrival in Toronto, where he requested political asylum.He had previously escaped from the same prison in September 2002 and was recaptured in the South African capital of Pretoria in January 2003, on the very day that he was sentenced in absentia to 28 years in prison for Cardoso’s murder in November 2000.”Anibalzinho’s return to a prison in Mozambique is very good news,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His two escapes were made possible by police complicity and indicated that one or more instigators of Carlos Cardoso’s murder were still at large.”The press freedom organisation added that it hoped the new trial that is now due to be held “will shed more light on this case, which is clearly far from being fully solved.”Some 30 police officers from Maputo police headquarters were deployed to guard Mozambique’s most notorious killer on his arrival on the evening of 22 January. The Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) said Anibalzinho was under close watch in a special cell and was being allowed no visits.Anibalzinho’s extradition became possible after he dropped his political asylum request in response to the Mozambique supreme court’s decision that anyone sentenced in absentia to more than two years in prison has the right to a new trial. The Canadian authorities approved the extradition on 14 December. He was finally embarked on a flight to Maputo via London and Johannesburg with a South African police escort on 21 January.The privately-owned weekly Mediafax reported that, on his arrival in Maputo, Anibalzinho refused all food and asked to see police commander in chief Miguel dos Santos as soon as possible. He reportedly threatened to commit suicide if his demands were not met. He is said to have had a long talk with two police officers on the evening of 22 January.Cardoso was gunned down on 22 November 2000 on Avenue Martires de Machava in Maputo. He had just left his office in his car, with his driver, when two men blocked their way and opened fire. Cardoso was hit in the head and died instantly. His driver was seriously injured. Prior to his death, Cardoso had been probing the country’s biggest financial scandal since independence – the embezzlement of 14 million euros from the privatisation of Mozambique’s Banco Commercial. He had named three very influential businessmen in his reports: the Satar brothers and Vicente Ramaya.During the trial of the five leading suspects, which began in November 2002, two of the defendants accused the president’s eldest son, Nyimpine Chissano, of instigating of the murder. Attorney-general Joaquim Madeira announced in late December 2002, shortly before the end of the trial, that an enquiry would be held to determine whether Nyimpine Chissano had any role in Cardoso’s death.

first_imgJOSEPH PREZIOSO/AFP/Getty Image(BOSTON) — Academy Award-nominated actress Felicity Huffman is expected to appear in Boston federal court Monday to plead guilty to a charge stemming from the massive “Varsity Blues” college entrance scandal that ensnared dozens of parents nationwide who prosecutors say lied and bribed to get their children into elite schools.Huffman, 56, has agreed to plead guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, federal prosecutors said.While she faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, three years probation and a $250,000 fine, Huffman is expected to receive a reduced sentence based on the prosecutors’ recommendation.In a statement last month, Huffman said she is prepared to accept her punishment.“I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney’s Office,” Huffman said. “I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions.”The actress — famous for her Academy Award-nominated role in the 2005 movie Transamerica and for playing one of the main characters in the ABC television show Desperate Housewives — allegedly gave $15,000 to William “Rick” Singer, who prosecutors identified as the ringleader of the nationwide scam, “to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of their oldest daughter,” court documents allege.Huffman claimed in her statement that her daughter “knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her.”Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy, later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so, court documents allege. Macy was not charged in the scam.On March 13, federal prosecutors announced that 50 wealthy people, including chief executive officers of major companies and a partner in a New York City law firm, were charged in the largest college cheating scam ever prosecuted by the U.S. Department of Justice.Those indicted in the investigation, dubbed “Operation Varsity Blues,” allegedly paid bribes up to $6.5 million to get their children into elite colleges, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California, federal prosecutors said.Another well-known actress indicted in the scam is Lori Loughlin, best known for her role as Aunt Becky in the ABC sitcom Full House.Loughlin, 54, and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, 55, allegedly agreed to pay Singer “bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC,” according to the indictment.Both were initially charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.When Loughlin and Giannulli declined to accept a plea deal in April, federal prosecutors filed an additional charge of conspiracy to commit money laundering against them.A superseding indictment unsealed in April alleged the couple and 14 other parents conspired to “conceal their fraud scheme by funneling bribe and other payments through the facade” of the Key Worldwide Foundation, a sham charity established Singer.Loughlin and Giannulli have pleaded not guilty to the charges.Singer has already pleaded guilty in a Boston federal court to charges of racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice. He’s scheduled to be sentenced on June 19.Several coaches involved in the scam have also pleaded guilty, including former Yale soccer coach Rudolph “Rudy” Meredith and former Stanford sailing coach John Vandemoer.One of Singer’s top accomplices in the scandal, Mark Riddell, also pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, as well as conspiracy to commit money laundering.Riddell, an alumnus of Harvard University, played a pivotal role in the scheme, taking the ACT and SAT for the students whose parents conspired with Singer to pay to help secure their admission into prestigious schools.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

JCRs move into merchandise

first_imgCollege JCRs are to sell their own crested sweatshirts, polo shirts, tshirts and jackets by the start of next academic year.The move was proposed by Oxford Limited, a company owned by the University, who currently supply merchanise to the University Shop on the High Street. The University does not profit from these sales, as the majority of crests are not trademarked and can be used freely by independent companies.Oxford Limited intends to offer colleges the opportunity to sell the items directly through the JCRs at competitive prices.Mike Davies, Managing Director of Oxford Limited, proposed the move, and said he was concerned about the sweatshop manufacturing of some of the unofficial University and College products sold in Oxford.The current plans are a result of talks between Oxford Limited and OUSU’s Ethics Committee. The production of the merchandise abides by a fair labour policy set by the International Federation of Alternative Trade.Davies proposed the move to the Presidents’ Committee, the representative body of all JCR Presidents, on 25 February 2005.The majority of JCR Presidents showed an interest in the scheme, which will allow JCRs to make profit from the merchandise for the first time.Davies said, “We are all part of the same community. This is about keeping the money in the community, whether it be to help fund the academic departments or support the student body.”OUSU helped to develope discussions between Davies and the Presidents’ Committee, and the terms of OUSU’s involvement in the venture are to be negotiated in a meeting of the committee this Friday.Daniel Finley, Managing Director of Oxford Student Services Limited (OSSL), the business arm of OUSU, said, “We have been working with JCRs to introduce this range to the student population.“We will be producing a catalogue, advertising the service inThe Oxford Student, in our Freshers’ Guide and our other publications, as well as developing a website and an online ordering service.“We are committed to providing the best possible value for our students.”Oxford Limited’s supplier, Brandco, has promised to give 10% royalties to Oxford Limited for the right to call themselves the University’s official supplier. Davies says that this sum is to go to the University chest, and will help cover Oxford Limited’s costs.Alan Strickland, JCR President of Merton College, said of the plans, “I think any scheme that raises money for the JCR and brings down prices for students is a good thing, especially when the money made can be spent on Entz or Welfare.”The University is currently branching out into retail. All items bearing the University of Oxford’s official trademarked logo, the belted arms, are made under licence.Oxford Limited has also licensed designs taken from the Libraries, Museums, and Archives of the University, which have been used to sell products ranging from toys to garden tools.ARCHIVE: 0th week TT 2005last_img read more

Australian company planning to build 50MW 24/7 solar project in Queensland

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:Australian solar thermal developer Vast Solar has unveiled plans to take its technology into the mainstream, unveiling a $600 million proposal to build a “baseload” solar plant in Mt Isa that will combine solar thermal, solar PV, battery storage and fast-acting gas generators.The plan, being supported and advised by Energy Estate, is to build a plant that will provide 50MW of continuous 24/7 power for Mt Isa, making up for the imminent closure of the Mica Creek gas plant and positioning itself for further developments should the Copperstring 2.0 transmission link is built between the mining city and Townsville.Vast Solar has been operating a small , award-winning 1MW pilot plant at Jemalong near Forbes in western NSW for the last two and a half years, and recently passed up an opportunity to build a full scale commercial plant in the region because the solar resource wasn’t quite good enough. (It sold it to Genex Power which is building a solar PV plant instead). In Mt Isa, Vast Solar CEO Craig Wood says, there is a solar resource that is the second best in the world behind the Atacama Desert in Chile, and an isolated grid where consumers have to, quite literally, supply their own gas, give it to the local gas generator to burn and then buy the electricity back at sky-high prices.The North West Queensland Hybrid Power Project will be the biggest hybrid plant in Australia, and will combine 60MW of solar PV and a 52MW battery storage facility with 10 minutes storage – which will provide the bulk of daytime power- and the 50MW solar thermal facility with more than 14 hours of storage, with back up from the reciprocating gas engines if needed.The battery has low level of storage because its major role is to balance out impacts of clouds and the like, and fill in the gap if gas generators need to be fired up. About half the total output will come from solar thermal, around one third from the solar PV and battery, and 15 per cent from the gas engines.The $600 million ticket price may seem sky high for just 50MW of baseload capacity, but Wood says the output will be delivered at a significant discount to the current gas-fired generation, which is probably costing local customers around $150 a megawatt hour – more than twice the average price of the main grid. “$600 million does sound like a lot. It is a lot,” Wood says. “But what happens with the economics of concentrated solar thermal and solar PV are similar. Their costs are all up front. You can get lower capital costs from gas generators, but then you spend $2.1 billion for the cost of gas over the next 30 years.”[Giles Parkinson]More: Vast plans $600m “baseload” solar thermal plant for Mt Isa Australian company planning to build 50MW 24/7 solar project in Queenslandlast_img read more

I Dont Know How To Date.

first_imgLifestyleRelationships I Dont Know How To Date. by: – June 29, 2011 Sharing is caring! 37 Views   no discussions Share Tweetcenter_img Share Share I don’t know how to date. This has come to my attention in recent weeks, months, or more specifically, the last 15 years or so. Every relationship I’ve ever had, I’ve just sort of fallen into where dating wasn’t really part of the equation. I always thought I was lucky in this regard, but I no longer feel that way.To me, dating is the worst. I do not care for it at all. And to be honest, most first dates rarely end up in a second, because I’m wonky and my social skills are definitely a bit questionable. Getting through a date is more stressful for me than fun; in fact, I find I’m more relaxed when I go to the gynecologist.Recently, I went out with a gentleman caller. He was a friend of a friend. I was forced into it as some sort of distraction for a recent falling out with an on-again, off-again love interest who ended up falling so below par that being with him became heartbreaking and disappointing.I had tried to emotionally prepare myself for the date (read: had a martini and a Xanax before heading out the door), and had also cried out any possible tears that might pop out later in the evening, as I am a bit on the emotional side lately. I had also gone to the effort of putting on lipstick and even shaved my legs right before just in case things got hot and heavy. I’ll actually admit my reason for going on the date was more to hoping to get laid than find some lasting sort of relationship. This, I fear, is the boy in me.The martini and Xanax were a bad idea, of course. Halfway through the dinner, I proceeded to tell my date that I didn’t know how to date, that I hated dating and that I didn’t care to go through the process of ever getting to know anyone because I already knew everyone I wanted to know except for Ryan Gosling. Furthermore he, my date, should know that I already met my soulmate, and although he was probably drunk in a gutter somewhere in Bushwick, as I spoke those words, someday, it was going to make sense and said soulmate and I were going to get our s— together and it was going to be perfect in a fantasy world with pink unicorns and bunnies named Fred. Yes, that’s what I told my date in a round about way. I have not heard from him since.Of course this makes perfect sense, because had someone told me some malarkey about pink unicorns and bunnies named Fred, I, too, would avoid them like the plague, and I like those things.So I went home and had a moment similar to the one Annette Bening had in American Beauty – the one where she cries and smacks herself to stop being such a baby. I didn’t smack myself with my hand, but rather with words. And in the moment I was forced to recall the so many first dates I’ve been on, and all the reasons they never resulted in a second. Granted, 70% of the time the choice to not have a second date was mine because I have obscenely unrealistic standards and again live in a fantasy world where everything is perfect. However, that 30% was not in my control. I had literally lost the chance for another chance for the same reason I had with my most recent suitor: I just don’t know how to date.I don’t know how to make small talk and have it involve into topics more interesting. I don’t care to ask questions or even offer up any information about myself. I don’t try to be charming, because it seems like such a waste since I’ve convinced myself that there are only three people who have ever existed for me in the history of the world and two are dead – F. Scott Fitzgerald and Henry Miller – and the other is drunk in a gutter in Bushwick. I am absolutely completely closed off and by most accounts a curmudgeon. Women my age should not be this way so early in the game, but I am. This does not make me innovative or even a maverick; it makes me a narrow-minded a—- . Someone please tell me why there isn’t a class out there I could take to remedy this issue, or at least teach me how to be more relatable to the opposite sex so there is the slightest hope of eventually procreating with someone, anyone.This weekend, I’m going to try this dating thing again. Once again, a friend is setting me up. I have already decided there will be no pre-gaming in my apartment, no mention of my soulmate – although he is, FYI – nor will I bring up anything about mythical animals or my disappointment in the whole dating process. No, instead I will do what they do in the movies and smile a lot. I will laugh at jokes that aren’t funny and put my wonky ways on hold for the evening if only to prove to myself that I can get to a second date and maybe even a third or fourth. Although to be honest, a don’t see a fifth one happening… by then I will have unleashed the real me and that takes a certain breed to be able to handle that level of madness, er, uniqueness.Here’s hoping it’s just a “not enough practice” thing as opposed to a “missing the dating gene” thing, but I guess only time will Thegloss Dotcomlast_img read more

Van Persie back in contention for United

first_img “He is back fit and we will see exactly where he is.” And there was some good news for England manager Roy Hodgson ahead of next month’s crucial World Cup qualifiers against Montenegro and Poland as midfielder Tom Cleverley has recovered from the knee problem sustained in midweek. “Tom has done a bit of training today as well,” Moyes said. “He is not too serious. He rocked his knee in training and we were a bit worried. “But he has had no reaction. He has done some training today and he will not be too far away tomorrow as well.” Moyes also confirmed contract talks with youngster Adnan Januzaj, whose present deal expires in the summer, are continuing. “As far as I know, things are moving along and as soon as we get the news, we will give it to you,” said the Scot. After complaining about the tough run of fixtures his players were given at the start of the campaign, Moyes’ side now face a less testing examination of their credentials. Press Association Van Persie has missed United’s last two games with a groin injury but has returned to training, leaving manager David Moyes to decide whether to recall the Holland striker for the Old Trafford clash. “Robin will be back involved somewhere,” the Scot said. “Whether we use him, whether we don’t, he has trained today. Robin van Persie will be available for Manchester United’s Barclays Premier League encounter with West Brom on Saturday. Yet the extreme reaction over the past seven days to that hammering at Manchester City and subsequent victory over Liverpool have been a reminder for Moyes of just what he let himself in for when he decided to leave Everton for the challenge of replacing Sir Alex Ferguson. “When you first come into the job as a young manager, it can be difficult,” said Moyes. “I found that as a young manager at Preston, and I found that when I was a young manager at Everton. “But I feel I have come into this job with experience. “I had done a lot of seasons in the Premier League and know exactly how it works. “But you never get used to the enormity of this club, not at least for a while. “Personally, I feel like you have to deal with that. “That’s what happens when you come into these management jobs.” But Moyes does feel he is gradually getting to grips with his new role. “I have been learning since the day I walked in as Manchester United manager,” he said. “I don’t think that is going to change for a long time. “I even think the manager who has just left was continually learning in the job. “I am relatively new to it so I am still learning everything about it.” last_img read more

Lawyer: Liverpool could sue Suarez

first_img Press Association The striker is at the centre of yet more controversy after appearing to sink his teeth into Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay’s World Cup clash against Italy in Brazil on Tuesday. World governing body FIFA is now investigating the matter and the 27-year-old could face a lengthy ban that could be extended to club football. Suarez has twice been banned for biting opponents in the past. Last year he was banned for 10 matches for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic while he incurred a seven-game suspension for a similar offence while at Ajax in 2010. Glenn Hayes, employment law partner at national law firm Irwin Mitchell, said: “The general position is that Suarez’s behaviour in the work environment would usually represent gross misconduct (given that it could be classified as an assault) and would usually result in the dismissal of an employee in most circumstances. “If the matter has occurred outside of work and is not connected to it, for example in the form of a work social, the issue for the employer would usually be whether the actions of the employee had brought the business into disrepute. “In the case of Suarez this could easily be argued – particularly as it is the second time an incident like this has happened whilst he has been with the club (and third time overall), and the Anfield club stood by the player last time despite risk to their reputation and despite his lengthy ban. “The decision for Liverpool however is not really about whether they do what a ‘normal employer’ may do. “With Barcelona and Real Madrid apparently planning to make significant bids for the player after the World Cup, the decision is whether they are willing to dismiss a player and waive a potential huge transfer fee. “Much will depend on what punishment FIFA hands down but if the ban is sufficiently long so that Suarez is unable to fulfil his contract, this so-called ‘frustration of contract’ could lead to claims by Liverpool for breach of contract on the part of Suarez.” The latest Suarez incident in the group match in Natal came amid growing speculation linking the PFA player of the year with a big-money move to Barcelona. European champions Real Madrid have previously been linked with the player. It remains to be seen whether such apparent interest is now tempered. Liverpool have declined to comment on the matter. It is understood the club intend to let FIFA’s process take its course before making their position clear. Yet with Suarez having also been involved in numerous other controversies since joining Liverpool in 2011 – most infamously a race row with Manchester United’s Patrice Evra that led to an eight-match ban – there is the potential for embarrassment for the Reds. Hayes said: “It will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few days and what stance Liverpool take in relation to their highest-profile and most-valued employee.” Liverpool could build a case to sue Luis Suarez for breach of contract if he is banned for biting, according to a leading employment lawyer.last_img read more

MLAX : Marasco, Palasek fuel SU’s recent offensive turnaround

first_imgIn front of the Notre Dame goal, JoJo Marasco spun relentlessly to try and get free. With two Fighting Irish defenders hounding him down the right alley, Marasco sprinted toward the goal line.There, he spun back once more and found Stephen Keogh. End of sentence.‘When given the opportunity, Stephen Keogh is automatic at finishing,’ said Zach Babo, a staff writer for Inside Lacrosse, in a phone interview. ‘… Keogh is the end-of-the-sentence kind of guy. He is going to finish what the rest of the offense is going to generate.’Keogh’s goal against the Irish represented a new wrinkle in No. 1 SU’s offensive scheme that has propelled the team to four straight wins. Ever since attack Tim Desko injured his knee against Princeton, Tom Palasek has played — and played very well — in his spot. It has allowed the Orange (13-1, 5-0 Big East) to adjust its lineup so that it has a dominant dodger on either side of the goal on offense. Palasek has commanded the attack from behind the goal for the most part, while Marasco has thrived in front of it as the fourth attack or a midfielder.Babo called Palasek and Marasco ‘quarterbacks’ of the Syracuse attack. And the ability to have one of them running the offense from behind the goal and the other out front has invigorated a once-dreary Orange attack.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse has averaged more than 12 goals per game in its four wins since losing to then-No. 5 Cornell on April 12.‘You kind of have that dodging, great-vision quarterback above the cage and that dodging, great-vision quarterback behind the cage,’ Babo said.‘It’s a very difficult thing to defend for defenses because they have two different guys that can feed them the ball.’Marasco and Palasek have thrived as distributors of late and added a punch to head coach John Desko’s offense. During Syracuse’s four-game winning streak, the pair has handed out 11 assists combined.Three of those 11 have gone to Keogh, whose production has improved with the additional playmaker in the lineup. He netted four goals Saturday in SU’s 11-8 upset of then-No. 1 Notre Dame — a performance that drew praise from Irish head coach Kevin Corrigan.‘I think he hurt us when we didn’t slide off of him, and I think he hurt us when we did,’ Corrigan said. ‘That’s a pretty good player right there.’In addition to superior field vision, Palasek and Marasco bring speed to the Syracuse lineup. Against a Notre Dame defensive unit that boasted an average height of 6-foot-3 among its starters, their quickness posed problems. Something illustrated in Marasco’s ability to shed two Irish defenders and find Keogh streaking toward the crease for the catch-and-shoot goal.In all, Marasco and Palasek played a hand in five of the Orange’s 11 goals. In a 12-2 win over Rutgers on April 23, they were involved in eight of 12.‘I feel like when we’re moving and our spacing is right, the speed really helps us out,’ Palasek said. ‘So if we can play fast out there, it’s tough for any guy out on the field to stay with us.’It’s a duo that Babo feels could hold the key to SU’s postseason chances, especially considering the type of player that Keogh is. The senior from Canada is much more likely to move off the ball and get open for a shot than he is to create one for himself. So if Marasco and Palasek can continue to orchestrate the offense at a high level, the Orange’s success will continue, too.‘(Keogh’s) production is so much an end result of the way the rest of Syracuse is clicking on a given day,’ Babo said.And in a game that was thought to be a defensive struggle between two of the stingiest units in the country, Syracuse’s ability to click and make plays was the difference. The Orange attack used its agility and lateral quickness to find the creases in the Notre Dame defense and exploit the Irish for 11 goals — two more than the unit had given up in a single game this season coming into the weekend.And the front-back combination of Marasco and Palasek, respectively, was one big reason.‘I thought our middies had some good looks down low,’ Desko said. ‘And then when they started covering us up down low, we were able to move the ball back up top.‘I thought we were moving off the ball, and anytime you’re moving like that it’s harder to cover people off the ball.’[email protected] Published on May 2, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @Michael_Cohen13 Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Commentslast_img read more

Men’s Soccer: Badgers fall to Butler, Portland without scoring a goal

first_imgThe first true road test for the University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team (2-4-0) ended in disappointment, a shutout defeat at the hands of the Butler Bulldogs (3-1-0) by a score of 1–0.Following the Badgers’ 2–1 victory over Lehigh University, the stage was set for a classic in this year’s Sellick Bowl. Unfortunately, the trip to Indianapolis resulted in a night complete with merely four shots on goal — a stat the Bulldogs capitalized upon in Thursday’s matchup. Possession was relatively balanced throughout the first 45 minutes, but the opening half highlighted some of the Badgers’ attacking weaknesses. The lack of forward production meant the game hung in the balance, and immediately after the start of the second half, Butler struck the back of the net for the game-deciding goal. The sweltering 90-degree contest did feature the Badger goalie, Dean Cowdroy, who recorded two saves on the night, keeping the team afloat throughout the day.Men’s Soccer: Sluggish start dampens post season hopesThe University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team came into this regular season with what were certainly high expectations following a Read…Looking to rebound after the road defeat, the Badgers returned to the McClimon Complex to take on the Portland Pilots (3-2-1) Sunday. After a hot start to their season, the Badgers managed to slow the aggressive Pilots, as their eight shots missed the mark in the first period. Despite the relentless Pilots’ attack, Cowdroy recorded a brilliant save at the beginning of the second frame, keeping Portland out of the scoring column on their ninth shot.But the inexperience of the Badgers’ front line meant they could only muster one shot on goal, and in the end the defense relented, conceding in the 55th minute what would be the game’s only goal. The Lander College transfer Cowdroy has certainly aided the defensive strength of the Badger unit, posting impressive saves and keeping the Badgers close throughout the first six games. Now it is critical to acclimatize the forwards, increase team chemistry in the attacking half, and begin to offer pressure toward opposing defenses.Badger soccer looks to gain momentum heading into Big Ten playThe University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team looks to bounce back following a disappointing performance at the Lakeside Classic in Read…Of the Badgers’ four losses thus far, all have come without a goal. With six matches in the book, the Badgers will look to pull off the upset against reigning Big Ten champs Indiana, as they open conference play Sept. 20 in Bloomington, Indiana.last_img read more

Barbados appoints Rihanna as Ambassador Extraordinary

first_imgThe Barbados government has appointed international pop icon, Robyn Rihanna Fenty, as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, with specific responsibility for promoting education, tourism and investment for the island.Prime Minister Mia Mottley said the government was honoured to be able to confer the title on the outstanding Barbadian singer who has contributed significantly to raising the island’s profile across the world. Rihanna has a deep love for this country and this is reflected in her philanthropy, especially in the areas of health and education. She also shows her patriotism in the way she gives back to this country and continues to treasure the island as her home.“She has also demonstrated, beyond her success as a pop icon, significant creative acumen and shrewdness in business. It is therefore fitting that we engage and empower her to play a more definitive role as we work to transform Barbados,” Mottley said, noting that her charitable contributions, both locally and internationally, have also been significant.Rihanna was appointed as one of Barbados’ Cultural Ambassadors in 2008, undertaking promotional work on behalf of the ministry with responsibility for tourism. However, this expanded role takes into consideration her multidimensional achievements and global influence across a much broader range of areas.In accepting her new duties, Rihanna said that she was ready to play her part in creating a new Barbados.“I couldn’t be more proud to take on such a prestigious title in my home country. Every Barbadian is going to have to play their role in this current effort, and I’m ready and excited to take on the responsibility. I look forward to working with Prime Minister Mottley and her team to reimagine Barbados,” she stated.last_img read more

Kompli-Global provides 4th AMLD support for gaming operators

first_img Kompli-Global has developed a tool to help companies deal with the more time-consuming customer due diligence challenges of the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive (4th AMLD).The 4th AMLD, which came into force on 26 June, includes a specific mention for the online gaming industry, where operators must perform more exhaustive checks on adverse player information.Backed up by a team of compliance experts in 66 countries covering 158 regions, artificial intelligence tool Kompli-IQ has been developed with the aim of establishing itself as a baseline check and a “matter of routine” within the gaming industry, but also for companies in financial services and other regulated sectors looking to bolster anti-money laundering efforts.Kompli-Global CEO Jane Jee said: “We have developed a search platform which enables companies to look and see whether there is adverse information on their new and existing customers.“Gaming operators will have to carry out a risk assessment of their clients to work out whether those customers are low or high risk in terms of money laundering. One would suspect that those dealing in large sums of money are higher risk, so one needs to check them out more thoroughly.”Addressed the geographical scope of the tool, Jee continued: “We have more than 500 key words that we associate with the names to carry out the search. To carry out a thorough assessment of somebody who is abroad, you need to be able to translate those terms into European languages and carry them out in the native language, and this is what we have done.“We’ve worked hard to build a network of compliance experts. These local compliance specialists can help us develop those search terms and take account of these cultural differences.” Kim Mouridsen: Combatting problem gambling with automated player profiling July 3, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Fonbet builds betting experience through ‘Alice’ voice assistant July 7, 2020 GAMING1 uses AI to combat problem gambling August 4, 2020 Related Articles Submit Sharelast_img read more

Pirates part ways with Clint Hurdle after 9 seasons

first_imgThe Pirates are ready to move on from manager Clint Hurdle after nine seasons, the team announced Sunday.”Words cannot express how much respect and appreciation I have for Clint as a person and a leader,” Pirates executive vice president and general manager Neal Huntington said in a release. “He was the right person at the right time to take on the enormous challenge of leading our Major League team out of an extended losing streak and piloting us to three straight Postseason appearances. “This was an extremely difficult decision for us,” Huntington added. “As an organization, we believe it was time for a managerial change to introduce a new voice and new leadership inside the clubhouse.”Hurdle reached the World Series in 2007 while with the Rockies, where he managed from 2002-09.The Pirates entered Sunday’s game against the Reds with a 69-92 record. Joe Maddon won’t return as Cubs manager in 2020 MLB wrap: Nationals secure home-field advantage in NL wild-card game Gerrit Cole, Justin Verlander first teammates with 300 Ks since 2002 “While we felt it was time to make a change at the managerial level, I strongly believe that Neal Huntington and the leadership team that he has assembled are the right people to continue to lead our baseball operations department,” Nutting said (via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).”This has easily been the most difficult season of my tenure. Today we announced that we are parting ways with Clint, but make no mistake about it, this is by no means a statement that our shortcomings are solely Clint’s fault. The entire organization is accountable and that begins with me.”Hurdle, 62, became Pittsburgh’s 39th manager in November 2010 and posted a 735-720-1 record during his tenure. He led the Pirates to the playoffs for three straight seasons from 2013-15, but they haven’t made the postseason since and have taken a step back after finishing 2018 with an 82-79 record.  “We will forever be grateful for his dedication to the Pirates organization on and off the field.” Pirates owner Bob Nutting also issued a statement, saying this was the most difficult decision he’s had to make with Pittsburgh.

Out of hospital Dalglish thanks fans after positive coronavirus test

first_imgHome again: Kenny DalglishLondon, United Kingdom | AFP |  Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish thanked fans for their support on Sunday after leaving hospital following a positive test for the coronavirus.Dalglish, 69, found he had the virus after being admitted to hospital on Wednesday for treatment for a separate infection which required intravenous antibiotics.He was discharged on Saturday night.“Thank you for all of your well wishes over the last few days,” said Dalglish in a Liverpool statement issued Sunday.“I’m delighted to be back home with the family after receiving brilliant care from the NHS (Britain’s National Health Service), which we appreciate now more than ever.“Marina (Dalglish’s wife) and I would like to express our immense gratitude to the medical staff who cared for me and who continue to treat countless others throughout the country during an incredibly challenging period.”Dalglish confirmed the couple would be in “full lockdown for the recommended amount of time in order to protect the lives of others”.There are fears that the warm weather across Britain over the Easter weekend will see the public flout government guidelines on social distancing instead of only going out to maintain health and purchase essential supplies.But a concerned Dalglish said: “I know the sun is shining for many of you, but I urge you to stay home and follow the government guidelines to the letter.”Earlier the Scotland great, in an interview with the Sunday Post, praised the “absolutely brilliant” hospital staff, adding: “People may think my name got me the best of care but every patient in the NHS gets the best of care.”On Friday, Dalglish’s family said he had tested positive for COVID-19 despite having previously displayed no symptoms of the illness.– ‘Humbling messages’ –Saturday saw two of Dalglish’s children take to Twitter to thank the public for their support. Paul Dalglish, also a former player, said: “Truly humbling messages from supporters of all teams,” with Dalglish’s daughter, Sky Sports presenter Kelly Cates, saying: “Thank you so much for your lovely messages and I’m really sorry I can’t reply to them all.”Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker said on Twitter: “Love from Becker family to Sir Kenny Dalglish!!”Ian Rush formed a prolific partnership with Dalglish during their playing days at Liverpool and the Welshman took to Twitter to give his old team-mate his best wishes.“Wishing a speedy recovery to the best…Sir Kenny Dalglish. Get well soon,” he wrote.Dalglish won the Scottish league title with Celtic as a player on four occasions before signing for Liverpool in 1977.At Anfield, he captured eight English league titles, two FA Cups, five League Cups and three European Cups as a player and in two managerial spells.In his Liverpool playing career, Dalglish scored 172 goals in 515 games.As well as his role in Liverpool’s golden era in the 1970s and 1980s, Dalglish received plaudits for supporting victims’ families after 96 fans died in the 1989 Hillsborough stadium disaster.He also coached Blackburn to the 1995 Premier League title.Almost 10,000 people in Britain have so far died as a result of the coronavirus.

Ronaldo strikes brace as Real Madrid hit PSG

first_img0Shares0000Ronaldo starred as defending champions Real took control of their tie against PSG © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYSMADRID, Spain, Feb 15 – Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Real Madrid came from behind to stun Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 in the first leg of their heavyweight Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday.Ronaldo scored his 100th Champions League goal for title-holders Real from the penalty spot late in the first half to cancel out Adrien Rabiot’s opener for the French side at the Santiago Bernabeu, set up by Neymar. The Portuguese star then turned the ball home from close range with seven minutes left before Marcelo secured what could turn out to be a decisive first-leg lead ahead of the return in Paris on March 6 and sent nearly 80,000 home fans into raptures.“These days are to be remembered, and what better way to do it than with the character we showed,” Real skipper Sergio Ramos told Spanish television.“We need to keep playing like that, with the desire to defend the Champions League. You can never consider Real Madrid to be dead and buried.”Rabiot said PSG were plagued by familiar problems“We always say the same things and we always get caught out in the same way,” Rabiot told beIN Sports.“The problem is it’s easy to score eight against Dijon, or four goals in league games. It is in these matches that you need to be decisive.” ”The late collapse for PSG brings back echoes of the way they fell apart to lose 6-1 in Barcelona on their way to a humiliating exit at the same stage of the competition last season.Bad night: Neymar grimaces as PSG lose to Real Madrid © AFP / CURTO DE LA TORRENeymar, in Barcelona’s ranks then, could not make the difference for PSG, who now have a huge job on their hands to turn the tie around.Having looked set to come away with a precious draw, the defeat piles the pressure on coach Unai Emery, but for Real the outcome is an enormous boost for their boss Zinedine Zidane.Under pressure himself with Real flagging domestically, he needed this win, and will earn praise for his substitutions, with Marco Asensio coming off the bench to set up each of the two late goals.That was after Zidane had taken a risk by leaving out Gareth Bale, a key element in the side that has won three of the last four Champions Leagues. The Welshman’s place in the line-up was taken by Isco.Emery went even further, dropping his captain Thiago Silva to make way for 22-year-old Presnel Kimpembe in the centre of the PSG defence.– Difficult night for Neymar –Real supporters chose an image of a famous fan in Rafael Nadal to adorn a display unfurled at the south end of the ground as the sides came out, hoping their team could draw inspiration from someone who has conquered Paris 10 times as French Open champion.World-record signing Neymar struggled to make an impact at the Santiago Bernabeu © AFP / CURTO DE LA TORREThe hosts started well too, while Neymar struggled, slipping when one pass was aimed towards him, complaining as a Luka Modric challenge sent him to the floor and picking up a yellow card for a foul on Nacho.Ronaldo, meanwhile, saw Alphonse Areola make a fine save from his net-bound shot after he had been released by Marcelo, and not long after that, in the 33rd minute, PSG scored.Neymar could claim an assist, although it didn’t look like the Brazilian meant to help Kylian Mbappe’s low ball across the box from the right into the path of Rabiot, who swept home unmarked.PSG had a precious away goal, but they could not hold their lead until the break as Giovani Lo Celso gave away a penalty for a foul on Toni Kroos.Areola, having just made a superb save from Karim Benzema, could do nothing to keep out Ronaldo’s spot-kick.The visitors had chances to go ahead again in the second half, Keylor Navas saving well from Mbappe and Sergio Ramos blocking bravely from Rabiot.Emery then surprisingly took off Edinson Cavani and replaced him with Thomas Meunier, a right-back. But it was Zidane’s decision to send on Asensio that proved crucial.In the space of three late minutes, Asensio saw one cross palmed out by Areola and then rebound into the net off Ronaldo’s thigh, before another assist was finished off by Marcelo, potentially finishing the tie in the process.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Study: Residing near a casino pays off

first_img“This study has shown that tribal gaming in California has improved social and economic outcomes on tribal lands and in surrounding areas,” researchers wrote in the report. “Benefits include significant increases in incomes and educational attainment and reductions in poverty, especially in the poorest regions of the state.” The researchers also said that Indian casinos increased employment and reduced dependence on welfare on reservations and surrounding areas. Many reservations are in poorer regions of the state that need economic development, according to the report. UC Riverside’s Center for California Native Nations released the latest piece of its statewide study Tuesday, a year and a half after offering its first detailed look at the effects of tribal gambling in California. The center is studying the social and economic effects by reviewing census data, state reports and other sources of information. The report looks primarily at the impact of gambling between 1990 and 2000, a decade when a number of California tribes ran gambling operations without the state-tribal gambling agreements required under federal law. Voters in 2000 approved Las Vegas-style gambling on Indian casinos, and the growth since then has been dramatic. There were 39 Indian casinos and 20,684 Las Vegas-style slot machines in California in 2000; there were 55 casinos and 58,721 slot machines by 2005, according to the report. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Michelle Dearmond THE PRESS-ENTERPRISE Families living near California Indian casinos enjoyed a greater rise in income than people residing far from gambling reservations, according to a study released Tuesday. The UC Riverside analysis of 1990 and 2000 census data found income levels for families living within 10 miles of reservations with Indian casinos rose 55 percent in that decade. The median income for families not living within 10 miles of a gambling reservation rose 33 percent during that period. last_img read more

Competition is fine – to a point

first_imgFor many of today’s reality shows, competition is the name of the game. Whether they’re dancing, singing or using their wits to survive in the wilderness, participants pit their skills against others to win the prize. The harsher the competition, the better it is for ratings, thus prompting producers and directors to encourage it. Conversely, most managers in most workplaces spend their days cultivating cooperation. But should they be? A new survey conducted by The Creative Group found that more than two-thirds (72 percent) of advertising and marketing executives admit their staff members compete with each other, and that this competitive spirit actually enhances employee productivity in nine out of 10 situations. “Healthy competition encourages professionals to stretch their capabilities and come up with innovative ideas,” said Dave Willmer, executive director of The Creative Group. You’re the last one to know. If colleagues rarely share their ideas or success strategies, it’s a sign that they don’t trust you to support their concepts or worry that you’ll pass off their ideas as your own. There’s a paper trail. Cubicle mates who frequently e-mail instead of speaking to you may want to keep a record of their communications, another sign that trust has eroded. You accept all the credit. Those who are excessively competitive often fail to acknowledge the roles colleagues play in making projects successful.

Once “winning” becomes someone’s priority, he or she stops cooperating with others and workplace camaraderie flies out the window. This can be detrimental not only to productivity, but also to the competitor’s career. Following are six signs that an employee may need to scale back a sense of competition and adopt a more collaborative mindset: Vacations make you nervous. Those who are overly competitive may fear that people who assume their responsibilities in their absence will outshine them. You’re leery of your peers. If you view co-workers as more of a threat than a resource, the competition level is too high. You bad-mouth others to your boss. Occasionally it may be necessary to discuss a problem colleague, but too many of these conversations signal insecurity on your part. last_img read more

Hamas suggests creating Palestinian army with its militants folded in

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) – The leader of Hamas suggested Saturday that the Islamic group could create a Palestinian army that would include its militant wing – responsible for scores of deadly attacks on Israelis – in the aftermath of its crushing victory in parliamentary elections. Israeli officials condemned the plan, demanding that Hamas renounce violence. Palestinian security officers, including loyalists from the defeated Fatah Party, said they would never submit to Hamas control. “Hamas has no power to meddle with the security forces,” said Jibril Rajoub, a Palestinian strongman. The Hamas chief, Khaled Mashaal, reiterated that Hamas would not recognize Israel. He also indicated attacks on Israeli civilians would continue, accusing Israel of targeting Palestinian civilians. “As long as we are under occupation then resistance is our right,” he said. Angry police stormed the parliament building in Gaza and armed militants marched into Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ compound in Ramallah to demonstrate their rejection of Hamas’ authority. Their defiance raised fears of a spike in violence between Palestinian factions. Clashes have already broken out between the two sides. Hamas gunmen wounded two policemen in Gaza early Saturday in what authorities said was a roadside ambush. The attack came hours after another firefight wounded a Hamas activist and two police officers, one of whom was in a coma Saturday. Hamas won 74 out of 132 seats in parliamentary elections Wednesday to Fatah’s 45. The militant group’s victory threw the fate of international aid to the cash-strapped Palestinian Authority in doubt and darkened the chances for a peace deal with Israel. Speaking from his base in Damascus, Syria, Mashaal insisted his group would not disarm and said Hamas’ military wing, estimated at nearly 5,000 gunmen in Gaza alone, could be merged into a Palestinian army. “We are ready to unify the weapons of Palestinian factions, with Palestinian consensus, and form an army like any independent state,” he said. Israeli officials demanded that Hamas look for peaceful solutions to the conflict. “If Hamas wants to be considered a partner in peace, it’s very clear what it has to do. It has to renounce terrorism, disarm, accept Israel’s right to exist and support political solutions to issues rather than pursuing violent jihad,” Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev said. Mashaal also said Hamas would abide by existing agreements with the country “as long as it is in the interest of our people.” Israel and the Palestinians have a host of agreements dealing with everything from administration to peace frameworks. Mashaal did not say which agreements he was referring to. Israeli officials have said repeatedly that they would not deal with Hamas, and Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said Israel would not rule out targeted killings against Hamas leaders if they attack Israel. Israeli airstrikes in 2004 killed Hamas spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin and his successor Abdel Aziz Rantisi. “Whoever stands at the head of a terror organization and continues to carry out terror attacks against Israel is not immune,” Mofaz told Israel’s Channel 2 television. Mahmoud Zahar, an incoming Hamas parliamentarian and one of the group’s top leaders in Gaza, told “CBS Evening News” that Hamas would be satisfied only if Israel withdrew from the land it has occpied since 1967, including Jerusalem. “Why not withdraw from West Bank and Jerusalem and to release our detainees and after that – after that everybody will look at how to continue the process,” he said. Hamas’ victory shocked Fatah, which dominated Palestinian politics for four decades. Abbas ordered an investigation into why his party lost so badly. Marwan Barghouti, the jailed Palestinian uprising leader who was Fatah’s top candidate and led efforts to reform the party, appealed for Fatah to hold a general conference to elect fresh leadership, according to a statement released by his wife, Fadwa. He also congratulated Hamas and said Fatah would peacefully transfer power. “We will respect the democratic process and its results and help those who won the confidence of our people,” he said. But many in the 58,000-member security force were less conciliatory and rejected any Hamas control. “The security institution is a red line. We will not allow anyone to tamper with it,” Gaza police chief Ala Hosni said. “It will remain a powerful and impartial arm that carries out the decisions of the presidency (Abbas) and that stops any infighting or civil war.” Dozens of armed police officers briefly stormed the parliament building in Gaza City, demanding the security forces remain in Fatah’s hands and calling for Hamas members who killed police in fighting in recent months to be brought to justice. In Ramallah, hundreds of Fatah activists, including gunmen and security officers, marched into Abbas’ compound and prayed at the grave of Yasser Arafat. “We came to you Abu Amar to forgive us for what happened,” they chanted, referring to Arafat by his nickname. Abbas’ security force prevented the activists from approaching his office. Militants outside the walled compound shot in the air. “We’ll show them hell as an opposition, and we will turn the Palestinian Authority security forces into armed militia led by Al Aqsa,” Ramzi Obeidi, a leader of the Fatah-allied Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, told the crowd. Other Fatah activists staged angry protests throughout the West Bank, including in Nablus. “We are now no longer part of the cease-fire,” an Al Aqsa gunman, Nasser Haras, told the crowd, referring to a year-old truce with Israel. In Tulkarem, gunman Ibrahim Khreisheh warned against cooperating with Hamas. “Whoever will participate in a government with Hamas, we will shoot him in the head,” he said. Abbas has said he would ask Hamas to form the next government and Hamas officials said they wanted to meet him Sunday. Hamas, with no experience in government, reached out to Fatah to form a coalition, but Fatah officials said they preferred to be in opposition. Outlining his group’s plan for the future, Mashaal said it would work to reform the corruption-riddled Palestinian Authority and continue its resistance to Israel. In a move likely to anger Israel, Mashaal said Hamas would release Ahmed Saadat, leader of the radical Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. He is being held at a Palestinian jail under Western supervision for ordering the assassination of an Israeli Cabinet minister in 2001. President Bush told “CBS Evening News” on Friday that the United States would cut aid to the Palestinian government unless Hamas, which the U.S. lists as a terror group, abolishes its militant wing and stops calling for Israel’s destruction. Speaking at the World Forum in Davos, Switzerland, former President Clinton suggested Saturday that the West should be more open to eventual talks with Hamas. “You’ve got to find a way to at least open doors … and I don’t see how we can do it without more contact,” he said. Hamas might “acquire a greater sense of responsibility, and as they do, we have to be willing to act on that.”last_img read more

DD Fitness: 4 tips on healthy eating while busy

first_imgAs a nation, we are getting busier by the day. During times of increased pressure and stress, mistakes in our dietary habits can easily happen.> You don’t have time to prepare meals.> You are snowed under at work and haven’t time for lunch. > You are rushing from place to place and grabbing the quickest thing that comes to hand and those things are usually full of calories and don’t provide much in the form of substance.Is it any wonder that some of us wake up one morning and wonder how we got so out of shape?How do we get around this problem?How do we make better choices when you are tight for time and finding it hard to think ahead? Here’s a few things that you can do to stay on track and keep mistakes to a minimum.1: Don’t eat in the car.If you are at a deli, don’t go for choices that you can eat while driving. Choose an open sandwich instead of a normal one, so you must stop and eat it with a fork.If getting a meal, balance it the same way you would the plate pictured above.1/2 a plate of veg, ¼ plate of protein and ¼ plate of carbs.2: Don’t eat while on the phoneHow many times have you been on a phone conversation while eating and reached over to finish your meal, only to realise that you had already finished it. Taking time to eat and to be present while eating will help you to acknowledge that you have eaten.You will feel fuller, be less likely to over eat and and be less likely to snack shortly after.3: Snack on fruit, protein and lower calorie foods and drinks.When you are in a hurry you always end up reaching for the quick fix food choices. Keeping portions of fruit at hand means you will always have a quick and portable snack wherever you go.There are a new range of protein bars that are great for snacking on. Fulfil, Quest and Carb-Killa bars all give around 20g of protein per bar with around 3-5g of carbs.If you want to use nuts as a snack, please be careful with your portion size, it is very easy to go over on the number of nuts you eat and take in huge amounts of calories.Portion sizes for nuts are a small palm-full or a thumb length of them (not the whole bag). You can use Diet drinks also to stave off hunger. Sprite zero, 7up Free, Coke Zero or Diet Coke are all great as they have virtually zero calories.4: Use carveries to your advantage.Just because there is a carvery at lunch, doesn’t mean you must ruin your diet.Every carvery has meat, veg and some kind of carbohydrate at it.Your portion size and what you choose it what counts.Increasing your intake of vegetables with every meal will help keep you feeling fuller for longer. You will be getting an increase of fibre and nutrients in your diet, and you will also be filling up on food that is lower in calories.Filling half of your plate with vegetable is a great way to manage calories and hunger.Protein helps with satiety levels and will keep you fuller for longer. Because it is so satisfying, it is very hard to over eat, you are getting calorie control without even knowing it. ¼ plate of protein is a good balance to a meal. Get this from all meats and fish.Carbs are not bad, we just rely on them too much for our meals. As with protein and vegetables, balance is key. If you have ½ a plate of veg, ¼ of the plate is protein, then the other ¼ can be carbohydrates. that will give you everything you need without going over on anything.These are some basic tips that you can use when you are busy and find it hard to pre-prepare your meals in advance.You can get better choices wherever you are and wherever you go, you just need to look for them.#TrainSmartYou can get in touch with me by following the link below to my website: contact me on Facebook:* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe Fitness LTDDD Fitness: 4 tips on healthy eating while busy was last modified: February 4th, 2017 by Emmet RusheShare 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:busydietEating on the gofitnessweight lossWorklast_img read more

Patients in Vegetative State May Be Aware

first_imgRemember the arguments put forth for why Terry Schiavo should be allowed to die?  They revolved around the awareness of those said to be in a persistent vegetative state.  Now, researchers reported in Science1 that a patient diagnosed in a vegetative state was aware of what was going on:We used functional magnetic resonance imaging to demonstrate preserved conscious awareness in a patient fulfilling the criteria for a diagnosis of vegetative state.  When asked to imagine playing tennis or moving around her home, the patient activated predicted cortical areas in a manner indistinguishable from that of healthy volunteers.The researchers called the condition of vegetative state “one of the least understood and most ethically troublesome conditions in modern medicine.”  The ran tests with functional MRI on a 23-year-old woman who had suffered severe injury in a car accident.  Unresponsive but with preserved sleep-wake cycles, she was diagnosed as in a vegetative state by international criteria. These results confirm that, despite fulfilling the clinical criteria for a diagnosis of vegetative state, this patient retained the ability to understand spoken commands and to respond to them through her brain activity, rather than through speech or movement.  Moreover, her decision to cooperate with the authors by imagining particular tasks when asked to do so represents a clear act of intention, which confirmed beyond any doubt that she was consciously aware of herself and her surroundings..  Of course, negative findings in such patients cannot be used as evidence for lack of awareness, because false negative findings in functional neuroimaging studies are common, even in healthy volunteers.  However, in the case described here, the presence of reproducible and robust task-dependent responses to command without the need for any practice or training suggests a method by which some noncommunicative patients, including those diagnosed as vegetative, minimally conscious, or locked in, may be able to use their residual cognitive capabilities to communicate their thoughts to those around them by modulating their own neural activity.Another case was reported by the BBC News.  A victim of an acute viral infection was diagnosed in a vegetative state.  She could not move her facial muscles to indicate reactions, but was aware of what was being said around her, and felt scared.  “I felt trapped inside my body,” she later reported.  The only clue to her hopeful parents came from a brain scan that showed she was processing information presented to her.Update 09/13/2006: Nature (443, 14 September 2006) published a news item (pp 132-133) and editorial (pp 121-122) on this finding, but claimed the patient in this case “seems to have been much less severely injured than the permanently vegetative Terri Schiavo, whose case inflamed the moral debate over whether those who show no signs of recovery should be allowed to die.”  Surprisingly, even though the news item admits that there is a continuum of states, that some on the continuum may be progressing toward eventual recovery, and that the binary diagnosis of “vegetative state” can no longer be taken for granted, the editorial claims, “This case has little bearing on ethical questions over whether or not the most severe cases should be denied treatment and allowed to die,” because in the most severe cases the chances of finding any sign of awareness is negligible.  Yet the parents and friends of Terry Schiavo constantly argued that she was aware enough to follow objects and display emotions.  Since she was killed in March 2005, we will never know if she could have passed a similar fMRI scan test.1Owen et al., “Detecting Awareness in the Vegetative State,” Science, 8 September 2006: Vol. 313. no. 5792, p. 1402, DOI: 10.1126/science.1130197.Recall the anger and outrage against the people who protested the death of Terry Schiavo.  Remember the claims that they were the ones being unreasonable and insensitive, and that the compassionate thing to do was to let Terry die, because she was not really living.  Now picture the possibility of her hearing all these things said about her but trapped inside, unable to communicate.  Imagine the fear and helplessness and pain of knowing you were being intentionally allowed to starve and dehydrate to death.  How many other times has a similar decision been made to a patient assumed to be “vegetative” and unaware?  Remember, these scientists said that negative responses in the brain scans are not definitive in diagnosing the awareness of a person.    What kind of nonsense applies a word like vegetative to a human being, anyway?  What are they insinuating, that this patient is nothing more than a carrot or rutabaga?  Notice how these researchers called the diagnosis of “vegetative state” as one of the “least understood and ethically troublesome conditions in modern medicine.”  Haven’t we learned that dehumanizing an individual is often the first step toward rationalizing the unthinkable?(Visited 7 times, 1 visits

Ads Aren’t Reshaping Twitter, Twitter Is Reshaping Ads

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Lost in the recent noise about Twitter’s developer relations and product designs is that Twitter is quickly (and relatively quietly) becoming a successful advertising business. And it’s doing this in its own way: Not by running banner ads or video pre-rolls, but through its own interactive, networked ad products.Twitter Ads March AheadMost Twitter users don’t – and shouldn’t – visit Twitter’s Advertising blog. But it’s actually pretty interesting. The cadence and variety of announcements, including new targeting features and measurement tools, suggest Twitter’s advertising team is “shipping” regularly across many disciplines.And something’s working: Twitter’s ad boss Adam Bain recently took the top spot on Adweek’s list of the 50 top industry power players. “Twitter is where the new ad wars are being waged,” Adweek gushed, noting that “promoted Trend ads now command $120,000 a day – and advertisers have to wait in line.” (Adweek cited Bloomberg’s earlier report that Twitter projected $1 billion in revenue in 2014, but nothing more recent.)Bigger picture, Twitter is building an advertising product that’s vastly different than what other media companies offer.Twitter ads are designed to be human – content, in a brand’s “voice,” but not robotic – and meld with the content around them. They’re designed to provoke feedback – via favorites, retweets, hashtagged tweets, and replies – in the same medium they’re created and presented in. They’re simple, so they can be created on-the-fly as events unfold. And advertisers can increasingly target them to people who might actually be interested in their pitch.“The canvas is the conversation itself,” Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said on the Charlie Rose show last week, contrasting Twitter’s content-based ads to previous, “megaphone”-like ad experiences. “What we’re trying to tell marketers is, you might not even go into a campaign knowing what you want to say in advance.”That’s not to say they’re perfect – Twitter and its advertisers are just as new to this as we are, so it’s still a learning experience. Some of the ads I’ve seen seem awkward and forced, or just lame, but I’ve also actually followed a few “promoted” accounts I didn’t know about, too. Either way, even I’ve found Twitter ads less detracting and more compelling than the typical banner ads on most media sites. And that’s the idea.“Our business is only going to work if we’re putting content in front of our users that they want to see and that they engage with. And that’s the simple equation,” Costolo told CNBC this week. “If we do that, the users will be happy, our business will work, and our advertisers win.”But it would be a mistake to assume that ads are solely driving Twitter or its product decisions.Users First, Business NextI’ve written, now a few times, about Twitter’s utmost desire to remain independent, and how that will require – sooner than later – a robust advertising business. (“Big money soon, or Twitter becomes Windows Live Chat Bird or Google+ for Glasses, and we all lose.”)But to my understanding, that’s actually not the driving force behind big-picture Twitter’s decisions. The nuanced feedback I’ve received repeatedly is: Yes, obviously, the ad business matters. But actually, what’s really important is user growth.Twitter “only” has 140 million users. (More than that now, probably, but that’s the last “official” figure.) Yes, that’s more than 10 million users, but it’s not 1 billion. So, as a result, product decisions are made with the user in mind first and foremost – and especially with the future user in mind. What’s going to make Twitter better for its next 800 million users than it was for its first 200 million? How can Twitter be simpler, more engaging, and more attractive?That won’t please everyone, especially – as we’re seeing – Twitter’s geeky early adopters. But it’s crucial to Twitter’s future – especially as an independent company. And it makes much more sense than the idea of tweaking the UI just to grease existing advertisers.The result, if everything works, could be a Twitter with many hundreds of millions of users, and a billion-dollar-plus ad business. Not bad for a company whose business model was a punchline for so long.Twitter CEO Dick Costolo photo (cc) Kevin Moloney/Fortune Brainstorm Tech via Flickr.

New Bowl Projection For Florida Heading Into Saturday’s Action

first_imgFeleipe Franks and D'Andre Swift hugging after a game.JACKSONVILLE, FL – OCTOBER 27: Feleipe Franks #13 of the Florida Gators and D’Andre Swift #7 of the Georgia Bulldogs shake hands following a game at TIAA Bank Field on October 27, 2018 in Jacksonville, Florida. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)The Florida Gators have a 9-3 record, and are in the running for a New Year’s Six game in a few weeks. Let’s take a look at the latest regarding where Florida football could land.Florida had a strong first season under new head coach Dan Mullen. The Gators scored big wins over Mississippi State and LSU, and blasted rival Florida State to end the year. The team did drop its first game to Kentucky in decades, but the Wildcats wound up being a Top 15 team, and could also make a New Year’s Six game. The other two losses came to SEC East champion Georgia, and an underrated Missouri club.The Gators are likely going to wind up third or fourth in the SEC’s bowl pecking order, behind Playoff hopefuls Alabama and Georgia. The Gators enter today one spot ahead of LSU in the latest College Football Playoff rankings, with Kentucky falling a few spots behind the Tigers.If Florida football sticks around the Top 12 when the new rankings come out tomorrow, it should make a New Year’s Six game.On Friday, Sports Illustrated’s Eric Single released a new set of bowl projections. He projected that the Gators would head to the Peach Bowl to face Michigan out of the Big Ten.His projections have Alabama making the College Football Playoff, Georgia representing the SEC in the Sugar Bowl, and LSU heading to the Fiesta Bowl as an at-large. Kentucky would head to the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.Dan Mullen wasn’t the splashiest hire last off-season, but he did an incredible job at Mississippi State, and after his time as the Gators’ offensive coordinator under Urban Meyer, he made all the sense in the world for the program as it looked to rebound from the Will Muschamp and Jim McElwain tenures.The Peach Bowl will be played on Dec. 29 at noon ET, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. It will be broadcast on ESPN.[Sports Illustrated]last_img read more

The brands of politics

first_img Next The brands of politicsIf brand-speak represents popular culture, we have less to worry about than some of us might think.advertisement india today digital New Delhi August 9, 2019 ISSUE DATE: August 19, 2019UPDATED: August 12, 2019 13:43 IST Image credit: Siddhant JumdeThe good news is that Indian brands unequivocally live in the world of customers and the people of India, and not in the world of politicians. They speak to people, mindful of commercial good sense, by tapping into popular culture; the good news is that they still see popular cultureThe good news is that Indian brands unequivocally live in the world of customers and the people of India, and not in the world of politicians. They speak to people, mindful of commercial good sense, by tapping into popular culture; the good news is that they still see popular culture as being quite far removed from the patriotic jingoism of today’s politics.Every Independence Day and Republic Day, brands in India do special campaigns-citizen brand talking to citizen consumer-and the conversation is quite revealing of the way business thinks about the state of the nation.We haven’t yet seen what the brand-speak for Independence Day 2019 will be, but it is a very safe bet, based on recent trends, that most will neither echo nor argue against the present political discourse on patriotism.The politics of patriotism that we saw during the recent elections was distressingly centre stage, and has been carried over into the post-election political space too. The BJP portrayed itself as standing for a very muscular and authoritarian patriotism, with aggressive images of military and disciplinarian force.It chastised those who asked questions or expressed dissent, with labels of ‘disrespectful to the country’, ‘anti-national’, ‘pessimist’ and more. There has been no alternative sketch of patriotism offered by any other contestant in the political space, except for noisy quibbles about the use of military images in political campaigns and questioning the officially declared numbers of casualties during the cross-border surgical strikes conducted on terrorist camps.Media brands quickly dived in to take positions on the level of patriotism of those referred to in the election campaign as the ‘tukde tukde gang’, the ‘Khan Market gang’ and the ‘JNU gang’, and also on the patriotism-or lack of it-of the ‘kitne aadmi thhe (how many men were there)?’ question, straight out of the movie Sholay, some political parties asked.advertisementIn this fraught atmosphere, non-media brands have thankfully decided to stay out of this arena and this tonality.No commercial brand can be authoritarian and survive in this new age of customer power, liberalisation and female empowerment. But is there no payoff for commercial brands that take a stand on societal and political issues? Recent research in more developed markets shows that customers want brands that share their beliefs.Are there any brands in India that are taking a stand and pushing back against this version of patriotism?Among the established brands that made a clear statement pushing back against the new politics of patriotism was one of the big four of India’s business conglomerates.Last year, for Independence Day, it ran a campaign showing India through the eyes of truck drivers. After talking of the varied sights, sounds and foods that they came across in their travels, one of the drivers says, “yeh jo ghar mein baithe television mein dikhate hain, usse bilkul alag hai mera desh (my country is different from what they show on TV).”Another truck driver, from the northeast, says, “Kabhi kabhi bataana padta hai ki main yahaan ka hoon, par chalta hai, jaan boojh ke nahin poochhte hain (sometimes I have to tell people that I am from India, but that’s ok, they aren’t asking to offend).”Yet another declares that “kuchh log ke chhote soch se desh chhota nahin hota (the small-mindedness of a few people doesn’t make the country small)”. The ad ends celebrating the truck drivers’ perspective, and suggests that we emulate their way of thinking.Change in India comes slowly, one drop at a time, until the tipping point of a pushback against the prevailing political discourse is reached. Recently, a food service delivery publicly denounced a customer’s request for a Hindu delivery boy-there has also been a similar request and a not-so-public pushback from a cab service.Perhaps this will give courage to younger, millennial andGen Z brands to stand up and say “we disagree with and disapprove of such talk”.How do Indian brands express patriotism, and how has this changed over time?The safe, popular and uncomplicated space that many have chosen includes admiration for the country’s achievements, recaps of past and recent milestones and salutes to the great scientists (while staying away from politically charged figures). An evergreen theme that many brands use to signal their identification with, and love for, the country is that of celebrating and recognising her unity in diversity.Varieties of food, customs, traditions, festivals, sights, attire and musical instruments have been used compellingly. Interestingly, this used to be the official political discourse as well till not long ago, best captured in the wonderful, heart-warming, government-sponsored Doordarshan film Mile sur mera tumhaara (1988), involving leading musicians from around the country all singing differently but in harmony.advertisementThe film’s predecessor, Spread the Light of Freedom, made around the same time, had sportsmen and women from across the country carrying a torch in relay-again, meant to celebrate diversity and honour achievement in sports.There haven’t been similar campaigns from the government since 1991, when the focus shifted from building society to building the nation’s economy. ‘Jai Jawan (hail the soldier)’, saluting the armed forces is another popular theme that still prevails, perhaps the only area where political and brand discourse overlap.Post 1991, for the next two decades, as India went from strength to strength, the theme of ‘nation building’ became a favourite. Electrical brands, food brands, bank brands, business conglomerates and large companies all vied with each other to present their nation-building credentials.The very old companies chronicled their contribution from Independence onward, while the new ones talked of their scope and scale and their recent achievements. Market leaders in every category tried to make themselves synonymous with India and to suggest that they fuelled the flame of India’s diversity-‘the taste of India’, ‘banker to every Indian’, ‘the nation’s history is our history’ and of course the most beloved ‘buland Bharat ki buland tasveer (a bold image of bold India)’.With the generational shift in companies and communicators, how does young India think about such things? Are we seeing changes in the way brands approach patriotism, their role as Indian citizens, or their Independence and Republic Day ads?One segment of it-a large one-merely sees these ‘special country days’ as a marketing opportunity. A hotel room aggregator exhorts people to take advantage of the long Independence Day weekend and travel to various parts of the country; another lot announces mega sales; yet another segment takes ‘freedom’ and ‘independence’ literally, promising freedom from cuts and scratchy beards and slippery tyres and the like.If we grant these businesses their perception of consumerism as the highest altar at which to worship, there is still a clear segment of others who are not content with a mere chronicling and celebration of diversity, but are using their brand platform to ‘help build a better India’-taking the nation-building theme to the next level.If earlier the theme was translated as ‘built factories, introduced new products, provided jobs, worked with all segments of society’, it is now beginning to be translated as ‘promoting desirable behaviours of a nation with a progressive society’.There are ads around ‘soch badalna hoga (ways of thinking need to change)’, ‘opportunity for everyone to rise’, ‘what has education done for you’ and so on. Women’s independence, safety and freedom from social restraints is a popular theme; environmental protection (not ‘Swachh Bharat’ slogans) and freedom from plastic is another; inclusion or the general ‘freedom to be’ and equal rights for under-privileged sections is another; and a gentle and positive comment on the move to a ‘no bribery and corruption/ fast transactions’ environment from a digital payment brand are all welcome indicators of what we will see more of in the future.advertisementRecent WhatsApp messages doing the rounds talk of ‘swadeshi-videshi (domestic-foreign)’ brands, bemoaning how the behemoths among US and Chinese brands are taking over the Indian market and blaming the government for not enabling the rise of Indian brands.The Bombay Club of 1991 thinking back again? No, that ship of patriotism has sailed. The new theme around swadeshi-videshi is to get our fair share of our own market by competing fair and square and doing what China is doing-creating local beaters of global champs.Nirma, and now Patanjali, rose on an anti-MNC platform. However, it is not patriotism but fair pricing that is their proposition. The ‘made in country X or Y’ national branding is now beginning to lose all its previous perceptions as supply chains have gone global. Orders from a website in Asia go to a US address; the shipping is from Europe, while the tag says ‘Made in India’.If brand-speak represents popular culture, we have less to worry about than some of us might think! The days when brands kowtowed to politicians are over. The days when they push back and take a stand if needed are yet to come, but there are definitely green shoots on the horizon.Rama Bijapurkar is a leading Indian consultant on market strategy and consumer behaviourYou’ve reached your article limitSign in to keep reading India TodaySign inSign up NOW to get:Premium content on Aaj Tak HD ChannelUnrestricted access to India Today magazine contentGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

DDA housing scheme 2019 8438 flats alloted in draw

first_imgNew Delhi: The DDA on Tuesday held the draw of lots for its Housing Scheme 2019 for which only 10,294 flats were put on offer, out of the original kitty of nearly 18,000 units.Even in the final draw of lots, out of 10,294, only 8,438 flats were alloted in various categories from 45,012 applicants, a senior official told reporters. “The original total quantum of 17,921 flats was reduced to 10,294 as very less number of people applied for flats in Narela, especially in the EWS category,” another senior official said. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe scheme, which is completely online had ended on June 10, and was for sale of nearly 18,000 newly-built flats in Delhi’s Vasant Kunj and Narela residential areas, for which the DDA had received about 50,000 applications, the urban body had earlier said. “People had the option to mark seven choices, depending on flat types and area, and less flats were picked in random computer-based draw of lots, as many applicants did not choose Narela options,” the official said. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThe draw of lots for the scheme was held at the Conference Room of Vikas Sadan, and the process was streamed live on the web through the DDA website. The draw of lots started at 12:30 pm and lasted for over an hour.

Huge tax bill heads for passage as GOP senators fall in line

first_imgWASHINGTON – After weeks of quarrels, qualms and then eleventh-hour horse-trading, Republicans revealed the details of their huge national tax rewrite late Friday — along with announcements of support that all but guarantee approval to give President Donald Trump the Christmas legislative triumph he’s been aching for.The legislation would slash tax rates for big business and lower levies on the richest Americans in a massive $1.5 trillion bill that the GOP plans to muscle through Congress next week before its year-end break. Benefits for most other taxpayers would be smaller.“This is happening. Tax reform under Republican control of Washington is happening,” House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin told rank-and-file members in a conference call. “Most critics out there didn’t think it could happen. … And now we’re on the doorstep of something truly historic.”According to the 1,097-page bill released late Friday, today’s 35 per cent rate on corporations would fall to 21 per cent, the crown jewel of the measure for many Republicans. Trump and GOP leaders had set 20 per cent as their goal, but added a point to free money for other tax cuts that won over wavering lawmakers in final talks.The legislation represents the first major legislative achievement for the GOP after nearly a full year in control of Congress and the White House. It’s the widest-ranging reshaping of the tax code in three decades and is expected to add to the nation’s $20 trillion debt. The tax cuts are projected to add $1.46 trillion over a decade.The bill would repeal an important part of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act — the requirement that all Americans have health insurance or face a penalty — as the GOP looks to unravel a law it failed to repeal and replace this past summer.Only on Friday did Republicans cement the needed support for the overhaul, securing endorsements from wavering senators.Marco Rubio of Florida relented in his high-profile opposition after negotiators expanded the tax credit that parents can claim for their children. He said he would vote for the measure next week.Rubio had been holding out for a bigger child credit for low-income families. After he got it, he tweeted that the change was “a solid step toward broader reforms which are both Pro-Growth and Pro-Worker.”Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the only Republican to vote against the Senate version earlier this month, made the surprise announcement that he would back the legislation. Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has repeatedly warned that the nation’s growing debt is the most serious threat to national security.“I realize this is a bet on our country’s enterprising spirit, and that is a bet I am willing to make,” Corker said.The White House said Trump “looks forward to fulfilling the promise he made to the American people to give them a tax cut by the end of the year.”The bill embodies a longstanding Republican philosophy that a substantial tax break for businesses will trigger economic growth and job creation for Americans in a trickle-down economy.Skeptical Democrats are likely to oppose the legislation unanimously.“Under this bill, the working class, middle class and upper middle class get skewered while the rich and wealthy corporations make out like bandits,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York. “It is just the opposite of what America needs, and Republicans will rue the day they pass this.”The bill would drop today’s 39.6 per cent top rate on individuals to 37 per cent. The standard deduction — used by around two-thirds of households — would be nearly doubled, to $24,000 for married couples.The $1,000-per-child tax deduction would grow to $2,000, with up to $1,400 available in IRS refunds for families who owe little or no taxes. Parents would have to provide children’s Social Security numbers to receive the child tax credit, a measure intended to deny the credit to people who are in the U.S. illegally.Those who itemize would lose some deductions. The deduction that millions use in connection with state and local income, property and sales taxes would be capped at $10,000. That’s especially important to residents of high-tax states such as New York, New Jersey and California. Deductions for medical expenses that lawmakers once considered eliminating would be retained.The bill would allow homeowners to deduct interest only on the first $750,000 of a new mortgage, down from the current limit of $1 million.People who inherit fortunes would get a big break. The bill would double the exemption, meaning the estate tax would apply only to the portion of an estate over $22 million for married couples.Members of a House-Senate conference committee signed the final version of the legislation Friday, sending it to the two chambers for final passage next week. They have been working to blend the different versions passed by the two houses.Republicans hold a slim 52-48 majority in the Senate, including two ailing senators who have missed votes this past week.John McCain of Arizona, who is 81, is at a Washington-area military hospital being treated for the side effects of brain cancer treatment, and 80-year-old Thad Cochran of Mississippi had a non-melanoma lesion removed from his nose earlier this week. GOP leaders are hopeful they will be available next week.last_img read more

Polisario Sends New Hostile Letter About Morocco to Security Council

Rabat – Polisario leader Ibrahim Ghali sent another hostile letter about Morocco to the Security Council on Sunday.The letter, published by the separatists’ “official” news agency, accused Morocco of “violations” in Western Sahara, citing UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’s report.Ghali also accused Morocco of putting up obstacles to “stop the process of settling the conflict.” The letter comes two weeks before the meeting of the Security Council, whose 15 members are expected to meet by the end of the month to renew the mandate of the UN peacekeeping mission in Western Sahara, MINURSO.The letter is the second of its kind this month from the Polisario Front. The “representative” of the front at the UN, Mohammed Ammar, also wrote a letter to the Security Council earlier in April to maneuver against Morocco.“Morocco’s growing violations seriously undermine the new momentum created by the Personal Envoy and contradict the serious spirit we are supposed to have as parties as we engage in the peace process,” said the separatist representative.Read Also: Sahrawi Activist Accuses MINURSO of Becoming Polisario’s Partner in CrimeBoth Ghali and Ammar ignored the UN chief’s remarks about Polisario’s violations in the region.The UN report also discussed Polisario’s violations east of Morocco’s defense wall, calling on the Polisario Front to meet in Rabouni, Algeria, with MINURSO members instead of insisting on meeting in Western Sahara.The UN chief warned against major risks of tensions in the region due to Polisario’s military exercises in restricted zones.“I nonetheless reiterate the importance of ensuring that no action, in particular of a military nature, be conducted that could risk creating tensions,” he said. read more

As 71st General Assembly opens new President pledges to turn the wheels

“The 70th Session launched the SDGs [Sustainable Development Goals], and for integrity’s sake the 71st must be the year we witness the wheels turning on the implementation of all 17 SDGs,” the President of the General Assembly, Peter Thomson, said as he took an oath of office before proceeding to open the new session.Mr. Thomson, who had had been serving as the Permanent Representative of Fiji to the United Nations until his appointment, said that the theme of the 71st session is ‘The Sustainable Development Goals: A Universal Push to Transform our World.’On 1 January 2016, the 17 SDGs of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders in September last year – officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with the aim of achieving the SDGs, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.The new Assembly President noted that it had been heartening to observe the sincerity with which governments and national planning agencies around the world have begun integrating the 2030 Agenda into national processes.“But make no mistake, the great majority of humankind has yet to learn of the Agenda; it has yet to embrace the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, that if successfully implemented will bring an end to poverty and secure a sustainable place for humanity on this planet,” he said.To fulfill his commitment to achieving meaningful progress in all 17 Goals during the session, Mr. Thomson said he had appointed a team specifically dedicated to the implementation of the SDGs.Working with two Secretaries-General Prior to the opening of the 71st session, the General Assembly held the last meeting of its 70th session, with the outgoing Assembly President, Mogens Lykketoft of Denmark, underscoring the progress made under his leadership, including the adoption of the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement, as well as the holding of the Special Session on the World Drug Problem, and the World Humanitarian Summit.The General Assembly has discussed the three major UN reviews on peace building and peace operations, and on women, peace and security, he said. Turning to the election of a new UN Secretary-General, Mr. Lykketoft said: “I am very proud that we broke new ground with unique transparency in the selection process. The two-hour presentation of each of the candidates in the General Assembly dialogues, and their collective Global Townhall debate, were important highlights and helped to include the global public in the debate about the future of the UN. And I hope that transparency proves instrumental in identifying the best possible new Secretary General over the coming months.”He appealed to the Security Council to also make the remaining process open and engaging to preserve the legitimacy of their recommendation as it feeds into Assembly’s final decision. “Throughout this session, I sought to instil greater transparency in everything we do – and I am delighted to see that many of the steps I have advanced relating to the integrity, transparency and accountability of my own office have now been codified in the GA Revitalization resolution adopted earlier this morning – and I look forward to witnessing the first ever taking of an oath of office by an incoming President in just a few moments,” he said. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon addresses new sesssion of the UN General Assembly. UN Photo/Evan Schneider Addressing the opening of the new Assembly session, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon welcomed the chosen theme.“This first year is crucial. It is a time when all Member States should align their policies, programmes and spending behind the 17 goals,” he said. He said it is also a time to bring the Paris Agreement on climate change into force, drawing attention to the high-level event he is hosting on 21 September will strengthen momentum for achieving that objective this year.Mr Ban noted that on 1 January 2017, the 71st session of the Assembly will welcome his successor, the ninth UN Secretary-General. “You will serve as a bridge between my administration and the next […] You will have my full support, and that of my team, in ensuring a seamless transition,” he said.“The Assembly will be called upon to address many threats, and to show its solidarity with people facing injustice,” he added. “People also look to this body not just to react to problems, but to work proactively and preventively to better the human condition.” Earlier today, Mr. Ban attended a wreath-laying ceremony commemorating the 55th anniversary of the death of Dag Hammarskjöld, one of his predecessors, at which he renewed his call to the General Assembly to appoint an eminent person or persons to review new information which may exist regarding the circumstances around his death and the loss of 15 others in a plane crash during their mission for peace.Closure of 70th General Assembly This session will be also special, he flagged, in that his office will have the experience of working with two Secretaries-General. The search for the best possible candidate to fill the post is approaching its final stages. “As President of the Assembly I will dedicate myself to facilitation of the transition process, and will be available at all times to assist the incoming Secretary-General settle into her or his responsibilities of office,” he said.Mr. Thomson also pledged to work to strengthen the relations between the UN’s organs, continuing the practice of holding regular meetings with the Secretary-General, the Presidents of the Security Council, and the President of the UN Economic and Social Council, and inform the membership as to the scope of these meetings. He also pledged to maintain financial transparency of his presidency by ensuring that all contributions to the running of his office are entered into a UN trust fund where the donors and expenditure will be public knowledge. He said his team will strive to find new methods to resolve entrenched conflicts, diminish the atrocities of global terrorism, better manage migrant and refugee flows, and end the many humanitarian crises.But make no mistake, the great majority of humankind has yet to learn of the Agenda; it has yet to embrace the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, that if successfully implemented will bring an end to poverty and secure a sustainable place for humanity on this planet.The link between sustainable development, peace and security, and human rights has never been more explicit, he noted, drawing attention to next week’s high-level meeting on large movements of refugees and migrants. “I regret the evidence of widespread lack of empathy for people on the move, many of whom are fleeing from conflict, persecution, or climate change […] It is time to turn down the rhetoric of intolerance and ratchet up a collective response based on our common humanity,” he said.In the area of peace and security, the Assembly President said the 71st session must build on the review of the Global Counter-Terrorism strategy, including the Secretary-General’s Plan of Action on Violent Extremism, and act on improving the UN architecture to face these threats. The session must also look to take forward implementation of the ambitious ‘sustaining peace’ agenda, agreed by the General Assembly and Security Council earlier this year, he added, noting that this is an opportunity to bring new coherence and coordination to the UN’s work across peace and security, development, and human rights.In his remarks, the new General Assembly president also highlighted the issue of UN Security Council reform. “The membership is unanimous in agreeing that reform is necessary to align the Security Council with the realities of the 21st Century,” he said.During his speech, Mr. Thomson invited to the stage his seven- and five-years-old granddaughters, who, he noted, will be young adults ready to fulfill the potential of their lives in 2030, when the remaining 14 years of the new development agenda have expired. “What kind of world will we have bequeathed them and all their brothers and sisters around the world, your own grandchildren and children, born and yet to be born?” he asked in an appeal to create a better future for them.“The 71st session will only be fulfilling,” he said, “if at its end we can be assured real progress is underway on each of the Goals, that our faith and hope in progress is not misplaced, and that a better world will be at hand when the year 2030 rolls around.” UN chief addresses new Assembly Outgoing General Assembly President Mogens Lykketoft is congratulated by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Undefeated Ohio State football finishes 120 in Urban Meyers first season

For all intents and purposes, the 2012 Ohio State football senior class is gone, never to wear scarlet and gray in meaningful competition again. “It’s almost like you’re losing some of your children when they go away to college,” said first-year OSU coach Urban Meyer after the team’s season-ending win against Michigan on Saturday. “Our house is going to be empty.” Gone? Perhaps, but not to be soon forgotten. After all, it was the contributions of the seniors that made the team’s run at perfection a possibility. Behind the strength of many of those 21 departing seniors, the No. 4-ranked Buckeyes (12-0, 8-0 Big Ten) clinched the sixth undefeated and untied season in program history and the first since 2002 Saturday with a 26-21 win against archrival Michigan (8-4, 6-2 Big Ten) at Ohio Stadium. The 109th edition of The Game saw OSU, the Big Ten’s Leaders Division champions, claim its 44th win against the Wolverines. UM, eliminated from Big Ten title contention after Nebraska beat Iowa on Friday, still owns the all-time series advantage with a 58-44-6 record. With Saturday being the final game of the season due to the NCAA-imposed postseason ban, one thing was evident within minutes of the final whistle following victory against UM – no more seniors. Meyer handed out several “thank you’s” during his postgame remarks, but the biggest thank you went out to those whose eligibility is up, players like Zach Boren, Etienne Sabino and John Simon. Theirs was an effort worthy of remembrance, Meyer said, and he plans to ensure that their memory doesn’t fade away. “I’m going to see to it when you walk into that Woody Hayes (Athletic Center) this team will never be forgotten, because they deserve that,” he said. It’s not hard to imagine why Meyer feels so strongly. Boren switched positions midseason, jumping from offense to defense when he left the fullback spot to join a depleted line backing corps. Boren hadn’t played linebacker since high school but, in just six games, he tallied 50 tackles, including a team-high nine in the win against UM. One of those tackles was a bone-jarring sack of Wolverines junior quarterback Devin Gardner. Boren stood above Gardner after the hit, shouting and rattling his face mask just above Gardner’s. Sabino broke his leg during OSU’s Oct. 6 win against Nebraska but returned in time to join the team for its divisional-clinching win against Wisconsin on Nov. 17, as well as the game against the Wolverines. The redshirt senior linebacker said the 2012 season was indeed a dream. “I wouldn’t want it to end any other way,” he said. And there was Simon, a defensive end and the team’s emotional leader throughout the perfect campaign. Simon missed Saturday’s Senior Day activities, as well as the game itself, with a right knee injury sustained one week prior against Wisconsin. “John Simon – the heart and soul of who we are as the 2012 football team,” Meyer said. Simon was not made available for comment following the game. There were other major contributors from the senior class, relatively unheralded compared to Boren, Sabino and Simon, but whose contributions likely went just as far in helping the team achieve an undefeated season. OSU redshirt senior punter Ben Buchanan walked off the Ohio Stadium field for the final time at peace with what he gave to the program. His final play was a 41-yard punt that pinned UM on its 8-yard line with less than 10 minutes to play in the game. Given the moment, Buchanan said, the punt was as good as it gets. “I think this team will be remembered as a very unselfish team, a team that really had to come together with some tough circumstances, there’s no doubting that,” Buchanan said. “I was proud of the way these guys just rallied and, they did, we just refused to lose and to be a senior on this team was truly on honor.” Sensing that he wouldn’t fit in Meyer’s offensive system, OSU senior Reid Fragel went to his then-newly hired coach and volunteered to switch from tight end to right tackle. For his selfless act, Fragel was plunged into a preseason battle for playing time with freshman Taylor Decker, which Fragel later won. Months later, Fragel attempted to address his teammates in the locker room following the season-ending win against the Wolverines. He struggled to articulate he feelings. “I wanted to thank (my teammates) and, really, tell them how I feel about this whole year, but it’s hard to put words to this season we’ve had,” Fragel said. “It’s something out of a movie … Just to see us come out 12-0, beating Michigan, that’s something I couldn’t have wrote up before the game.” As Buchanan and his teammates enjoyed the climactic day of the season, OSU football converged with its troubled past as former coach Jim Tressel, the man responsible for the 2012 team’s postseason ban, returned. Once shamed by the “Tattoo-Gate” scandal in which he knowingly fielded a team of ineligible players during the 2010 season, Tressel was hoisted onto the shoulders of players from his 2002 national championship team, which was honored for the 10-year reunion of its great feat between the first and second quarters. But with Tressel came memories of his unceremonious exit from the university – he was forced to resign in May 2011 – as well as the Buckeyes’ agonizing 2011 campaign where they posted a 6-7 record. The loudest cheers during Saturday’s short, in-game ceremony for the 2002 team came during the moments that featured Tressel, the man that each member of the 2012 senior class signed on to play for. Louder still were the cheers for the current players themselves, now under Meyer’s direction, during actual game action, and particularly when the clock struck “00:00.” Meyer will hold a “season wrap-up” press conference on Monday, according to an OSU athletics release. The Buckeyes will then turn the page on the 2012 season and set their sights on 2013. “After our team meeting on Tuesday, we start a new journey,” Meyer said. The strong foundation that has been laid at OSU exists because of the 21 dedicated Buckeyes that hung up their pads and cleats for the final time on Saturday. For those seniors who won’t rejoin the Scarlet and Gray in pursuit of championship glory, their last gasp as active members of the Buckeye Brotherhood couldn’t have been sweeter. “It’s unbelievable, man, I couldn’t ask for anything more other than a chance to play a couple more weeks,” said OSU redshirt senior defensive lineman Nathan Williams. “This is how the 2012 team is going to be remembered by, you know, going undefeated … going 12-0 and beating Michigan at home. I really wouldn’t want to go out any other way than that.” read more

Redemption not revenge on Ohio States mind ahead of Virginia Tech

“There is a little nudge around here because they beat us, and really the way they beat us,” he said. “Offensively right now there is a lot of distaste for the way that thing happened.”In last year’s meeting between the schools, OSU was decimated by the talent of the Virginia Tech defense. Then-redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett, making the second start of his collegiate career, completed just nine of 23 passes and was sacked seven times. He also threw three interceptions, including two by then-senior safety Kyshoen Jarrett and a late 63-yard pick-six by then-junior safety Donovan Riley.Powell said a big reason for the Buckeyes being unprepared for Virginia Tech last year was their season opener the weekend before against Navy. The safety said the Midshipmen, a team known for running the triple option on nearly every play, forced the Buckeyes to spend their entire practice time preparing for that untraditional offense rather than a more typical one used by teams like Virginia Tech.“Last year we spent a lot of time trying to master that triple option offense. It was really difficult to go from that then jump straight to a regular spread offense,” Powell said. “It’s good to finally just focus on one thing and that’s kind of what we’re going to see all year, instead of focus on one thing for one game that we’re never going to see again.”Schutt added that with no Navy game ahead of Virginia Tech in 2015, he expects the team to be better adjusted and then some, when the extra motivation is factored in.“For this game specifically, I think we put in more than we would for a normal game just because of what happened last year,” Schutt said. “We felt unprepared last year coming into that game, both offensively and defensively, and this year we’ve been working on this game plan all summer and are excited about next week.”OSU’s rematch with Virginia Tech is scheduled for an 8 p.m. kickoff on Monday in Blacksburg, Virginia. Then-redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) lies on the ground after being tackled during a game against Virginia Tech Sept. 6 at Ohio Stadium. OSU lost, 35-21. Credit: Lantern File PhotoOhio State might have won the inaugural College Football Playoff National Championship in 2014, but the one thing the team cannot hang its hat on is a perfect season.While the Buckeyes won 13 straight games to end the season, a 35-21 defeat at home to Virginia Tech on Sept. 6 put an early but permanent mark in their loss column.Now, 366 days after the upset loss, OSU is set to have a chance to return the favor to the Hokies on their home field of Lane Stadium.“Due to the fact that we did lose to them last year … that’s something that we can’t get back at them, because although we won it all last year, still in our loss column there was a ‘one’ in there, and they’re the ones that unfortunately gave it to us,” redshirt junior safety Tyvis Powell said. “So it’s just about going out there and making sure that doesn’t happen again.”While members of the team said they vividly remember the 2014 matchup and have been studying tapes from that game for weeks, senior defensive lineman Tommy Schutt said the extra motivation the team feels is not completely revenge-based.“I wouldn’t necessarily call it revenge, but it’s something that’s been in the back of our heads since that game,” he said. “I think we definitely have a little extra chip on our shoulders knowing what happened last year, how we finished the season last year knowing they were the one team that was able to beat us, so we definitely have a little extra chip on our shoulder going into this one.”OSU coach Urban Meyer echoed his players’ sentiments and said Monday’s game is one the Buckeyes have been looking forward to for a long time. read more

Aramine and ARMZ sign agreement for L140B batterypowered miniLoader

first_imgUnderground vehicle specialist Aramine says it has signed a partnership agreement with Russia uranium producer, ARMZ, for the assembly of its L140B battery-powered miniLoader.The pact was signed by ARMZ Uranium Holdings’ Director General, Vladimir Verkhovtsev, and Aramine Presidents, Marc Melkonian and Christophe Melkonian, during the 23rd International Mining World Russia Exhibition, in Moscow.“Production of Aramine battery loaders will improve the working conditions of the miners, increase the level of safety and, of course, increase the volume of ore mining,” Verkhovtsev said.Just a few months ago, Aramine looked to extend the continuous working time of its battery-powered miniLoader L140B by providing a battery change-out option.This miniLoader L140B, launched in 2017, is an optimised and advanced version of the L120B, carrying more capacity – 1.3 t. While the company’s new option allows the machine to run full time without being immobilised during charging, the standard L140B offers four hours of continuous operation. This allows for the mucking of three to four faces in one shift with a simple charging system integrated into the machine and requiring a plug to the wall, according to the company.The miniLoader does not require massive electrical installation, with the power required only being about 7 kW, compared with the 45 kW typically needed for an electric machine with cable, the company said.ARMZ recently announced plans to reduce the level of risk both underground and above-ground at its industrial complexes, with Verkhovtsev saying the company was looking at, among other things, automation and implementation of the most modern technologies at its operations.last_img read more

Murphs Sideline Cut Nothing added to Donegal except more McBrearty brilliance

first_img©INPHO/James CrombieThe scorer of their vital second goal, Ross Wherity, looks capable of ruffling a few feathers off the bench in a pretty unconventional ‘Tony Cascarino’ kind of way, but they will go with the same 17 or 18 players they had last year, as demonstrated by the familiarity of the two players who came in as late injury replacements for Karl Lacey and Mark McHugh.So what’s changed? What have they added?  Well, by the looks of last Sunday, they appear to have added a further 25% to Paddy McBrearty’s talents, who with every passing game looks more and more capable of becoming another Michael Murphy, as he was so confidently billed when he first burst on the scene two years ago.Upward curveWith a young player you expect peaks and troughs – a stellar debut perhaps, followed by a couple of quiet games, before he lights up again.  Or a poor second season, followed by consolidation of his gifts the year after.  McBrearty has defied all of that thinking though, having shown a steeply upward curve in his performance from the moment we first saw him in a Donegal senior jersey.On Sunday he was instrumental in the two goals, capable of scoring himself, and looked for all the world like a seasoned veteran.  In the absence of adding some extra scoring oomph to their half-forward line, they have benefited from the fast-track maturation of a guy who will be in the top five footballers in the country for the next seven or eight years.©INPHO/Presseye/Russell PritchardHas the game-plan changed?  Not appreciably.It’s important to note that Tyrone have now had three games to try and figure Donegal out, to no avail.  What Donegal now have in their armory is the confidence of winners.  Tyrone’s best spell came either side of half-time, and in the first ten minutes of the second half in particular Donegal barely touched the ball.But as Tyrone wailed away at Donegal’s midriff, the champions rope-a-doped, and McBrearty broke their will with that lightning break down along the right wing to set up Wherity’s goal.  He kicked the next score himself, and set up Michael Murphy for the one after that. Game over.  They were outplayed for 13 minutes, and then killed the game off in the five minutes after that.  Impressive, impressive stuff.Tyrone were dismantled here in the last 20 minutes and it will take a long time for them to recover from this.  But given Tyrone’s stellar play in the league, and how over the course of 70 minutes Donegal gradually put the lie to all they thought they knew about themselves, I wonder what Jim Gavin was thinking.I wonder will he be taking another look at Paul Mannion’s willowy frame in training tomorrow night, and thinking to himself how much he can believe in what’s he’s seen in his first six months in the job.  A Dublin-supporting friend of mine texted me after about 50 minutes of the action had elapsed in Ballybofey – “this is a bad advertisement for the league.”And it’s only natural to be thinking like that now – Donegal are the team to beat.  We’ll have plenty of time to ask questions about McGuinness’ involvement with Celtic, and the parties that were had celebrating Sam’s return, and how impossible it is to retain your All-Ireland title… but right now, they are out on their own, on merit.Elsewhere of course, London finally did what they have been threatening to do for the last number of years, and won a game in the Connacht championship, which means they go forward to play Leitrim in the semi-final.©INPHO/Jim KeoghThe winners are guaranteed a place in the last 12 of the All-Ireland championship. It was said before Sligo lost this game that it was an unbelievably easy route to what is supposed to be where the championship really hots up – so the fact that London won on Sunday doesn’t definitively change the point I’m trying to make here.But Tyrone will have to win three games to get to that stage, having already played out a war with the best team in the country. It’s just not fair, and Leitrim people would tell you that just as quickly as anyone else.  The base requirement for any sporting competition should be that to win, everyone has to play an equal amount of games.  It’s not going to change any time soon, and maybe it’ll never change at all – but it’s worth pointing out these injustices anyway, because it’s idiotic.This week Murph was – talking to a former inter-county player about the build-up to the game in Ballybofey, and how he couldn’t remember looking forward to a first round game as much since the 1994 game between then All-Ireland champions Derry, and soon-to-be-crowned champions Down.For those of you who are too young to remember just how good a game it was, you should check it out.Mickey Linden… jaysis.YouTube credit: Bryansford GaelSee how London won their first Connacht SFC game in 36 yearsEamonn O’Hara calls on Sligo boss Kevin Walsh to resign after London loss WE’VE SEEN IT for years in soccer – teams win the league, don’t buy reinforcements in the summer, and can’t retain their titles.To stay still is to go backwards.  So when Donegal named the exact same team for their match against Tyrone in Ballybofey yesterday as which played Mayo in the All-Ireland final last September, we had cause to take a moment.The considered wisdom is that you have to find two or three lads over the winter that can revitalize your squad.  Donegal didn’t really find anyone over the course of this year’s league, but then again I’m starting to be shocked that they managed to fulfill all seven fixtures in Division 1, such is their (in my opinion, well-placed) disregard for that competition.last_img read more

Tumblr Still Down

first_imgA Tumblr outage is not all that unusual, of course, but 14 hours certainly is. Tumblr went down more than 14 hours ago–and it’s still not back up. Anyone visiting the site will see the above message. The blogging multi-media blogging service–like its users–has turned to Twitter for information. Though that information is rather sparse. When the outage first hit, Tumblr tweeted (that phrase just seems weird, right),We’re working quickly to recover from a major issue in one of our database clusters.

Les pesticides lune des principales causes de décès au Bangladesh

first_imgLes pesticides, l’une des principales causes de décès au BangladeshBangladesh – L’enquête annuelle sur la situation sanitaire de ce pays révèle un nombre important de décès liés à l’exposition aux pesticides. L’analphabétisme, le manque de vigilance lié à l’application des produits et une méconnaissance des lois en vigueur seraient des causes liées.Alors qu’aucun empoisonnement n’était mentionné dans le bulletin de l’année précédente, 7.438 cas de décès par empoisonnement liés aux pesticides ont été enregistrés dans le rapport 2009. Les empoisonnements directs ne représentent que 8% des décès, les insuffisances respiratoires et autres maladies liées à l’exposition aux pesticides représentent un plus grand pourcentage de décès. À lire aussiComment définir la mort ? L’éternel défi des scientifiquesLe Dr Faiz, professeur de médecine au Sir Salimullah Medical College de Dhaka, précise que les agriculteurs répandent des pesticides très toxiques sans prendre de mesures de protection, inhalant ainsi ces produits. “D’autres s’empoisonnent parce qu’ils ne se lavent pas les mains et le visage correctement après avoir pulvérisé les pesticides”, ajoute-t-il. La question du recyclage des conteneurs de pesticides pose aussi beaucoup de problèmes. La population s’en sert parfois pour ranger la nourriture, faute de pouvoir lire les messages d’avertissement écrits sur les emballages. Par ailleurs, le Bangladesh est un très grand consommateur de pesticides, afin de garantir un bon rendement et éviter les pertes liées aux nuisibles. L’agriculture emploie 75% de la population active.Pourtant une réglementation existe depuis 1985 dans ce pays afin de contrôler l’enregistrement, l’importation, la fabrication, la vente, l’emballage et la communication concernant les pesticides. Mais les vendeurs profitent de l’analphabétisme de la population pour proposer des produits parfois très dangereux et interdits par le gouvernement.

11 Foreign SciFi Shows That We Want To See Translated

first_img Netflix Axes ‘The OA’ Sci-Fi Series After 2 Seasons‘Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ Becomes Mostly Harm… Stay on target Ijon Tichy: Space PilotStanislaw Lem is one of the greatest sci-fi writers of all time, an idiosyncratic philosopher and physician who explored complex subjects with humor and skill. His work is frustratingly hard to translate to other mediums, but Germany’s ZDF channel did a solid job in 2007 with Ijon Tichy: Space Pilot. The titular hero is an awkward weirdo flying through space in a “three-bedroom rocket” made from a French press, accompanied by a holographic woman. The duo get into all manner of shenanigans in this satirical series, which lasted two seasons. The first one was shot entirely in star Oliver Jahn’s apartment. English science fiction has made its way across the pond for decades, starting with Doctor Who through modern hits like Black Mirror. Without a language barrier in place, it’s easy for us Americans to enjoy British sci-fi. But guess what? Plenty of other countries have their own television industries, and they’re making compelling and unique science fiction of their own.Some of that has already made its way over here – Netflix shows Brazilian post-apocalypse series 3%, for example, as well as German horror show Dark. But we want more! With that in mind, we trawled through TV Guides from all over the world to get examples of eleven foreign shows that we really want to see, subbed or dubbed.My Love From The StarKorean television is famous for romance, and the sci-fi My Love From The Star is a satisfying weepie. Kim Soo-hyun plays an alien who landed on Earth in 1609 and gets stranded here for 400 years. During that span, he lives multiple lifetimes, taking on a new identity every decade because he doesn’t show any visual signs of aging. When he meets a young actress just a few months before his people show up to take him home, it tests his allegiance to his adopted planet in ways he never thought possible. The show was wildly popular not only in Korea, where it influenced fashion trends for years, but also neighboring China. BunkerUnsurprisingly, Russian science fiction still has the Cold War on the brain. Bunker, which premiered on their TNT network in 2006, is a dark comedy about a research team in an underground Siberian installation who have been cut off from the outside world for three years as they work on a mysterious project. When a new researcher shows up with a specialization in veterinary medicine despite there being no animals in the bunker, things start to get really weird. Full of dark humor, this series looks a little dated now but still packs a punch of culture shock.2091Latin America is a huge market, and they’re already starting to make inroads into the entertainment world. 2091 is the first premium TV sci-fi drama from South America, and it’s a doozy. Made in Colombia, the show jets us forward to a future where video game addiction has become a public health issue, leading a billionaire to fly the hardest of the hardcore to the moon of Callisto to compete for a prize that’s a lot bigger than bragging rights. The show has some flaws, but it’s a really cool look at how another culture tackles some hoary old tropes.Ha’Nephilim“Normal people get unusual abilities” is one of the hoariest sci-fi TV premises, but it’s always interesting to see how other cultures interpret it. As you might guess from the title of this Israeli series, there’s a bit of a religious tinge to this one. When a teenage boy moves with his father to a nuclear research facility in the south of the country, he stumbles on a conspiracy to hide an alien spaceship that contains a portal to another place, occupied by criminals with superpowers. When they deactivate the restraint field, hundreds of people rediscover their true superhuman skills and chaos ensues.El Ministerio del TiempoSecret government institutions are a staple of sci-fi series all over the world, and Spain is no exception. The hit El Ministerio del Tiempo follows the employees of an office tasked with correcting disturbances in the flow of time. Pulled from the last 300 years, our lead trio leaps through mostly Spanish history meeting notable figures and fixing problems. It’s not the most original of premises, but the local flavor makes it a fun watch and you might just learn something. The show’s sense of humor keeps things feeling light and brisk, and there’s some clever set design to look at. El BarcoIf you miss the glory days of thinking Lost was good, Spanish TV show El Barco might scratch that same itch. When an accident at the Large Hadron Collider sinks all of Earth’s continents below the sea, the crew of the Estrella Polar must search for survivors and try to find a way to survive in this wet new world. The crew of the ship is primarily students on a sailing scholarship along with a few adults – a chef, a doctor and a mysterious stowaway. The show is fast-paced and pulpy fun, and while the shipboard setting can feel claustrophobic it keeps things lively with fun characters and some seriously bizarre threats, including panicked flocks of birds with nowhere to land. ÉternelleStarring singer/actress Claire Keim, Éternelle was a big hit for French network M6 when it premiered in 2009. She plays an amnesiac woman who is discovered wandering nude in Paris and, upon examination, is host to an unknown bacteria that seems to have given her the ability to siphon memories from people she comes into physical contact with. The six-episode first series did exceptionally well and a sequel has been promised, but it’s been nearly a decade and nothing seems to have materialized. That’s a shame, because sci-fi TV isn’t a big thing in France and you’d think they’d want to follow up on one of their only homegrown hits. TrepaliumClass consciousness has always been a major part of science fiction, and this recent French miniseries tackles the subject boldly. In the uncertain future, a massive wall divides Paris into two segments – the city on one side and the Zone on the other, where 80% of the population lives. The demand for labor results in a lottery that brings Zone people over to the other side of the wall every year, but once there they learn that things aren’t quite as simple as they seem. It’s a bleak and relentless portrait of the world to come and very much worth watching. Alpha 0.7Germany has built a reputation as a hub for innovative technology, and their sci-fi reflects that. One of the most successful shows on the air in recent years was Alpha 0.7, which was presented as a “transmedia” experience that also included a radio program and Web content. Following the adventures of a group of activists attempting to dismantle the surveillance state implemented by the Protecta Society, it’s a clever and compelling bit of dystopia that seems increasingly prescient the more we learn about Facebook and other actors misusing our private data. It’s worth noting that Germany has laws allowing individuals to sue companies for data breaches, so maybe this show inspired some real-world good. Or maybe it’s just a good sci-fi TV program. CircleThis Korean sci-fi drama had a pretty unusual format hook. Each episode was divided into two stories following the same characters – the first half would take place in 2017 and the second twenty years later. Twin brothers Kim Woo-jin and Kim Bum-gyun are the protagonists of the 2017 storyline, following up their encounter with an alien spacecraft. The 2037 storyline sees Korea divided into a pair of nation-states – one sleek and hyper-advanced, the other polluted and hellish. Detective Kim Joon-hyuk lives in the latter but must gain admittance to the former to investigate the disappearance of the twins. It’s a clever and fascinating show with a cool premise and solid execution. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Know why women are better at reading mind

first_imgEver wondered how your wife or partner is able to read your thoughts and emotions just by looking at your eyes? Her ability to interpret may be the result of a gene influence, say researchers, one of Indian-origin.The findings showed that the genetic variants on chromosome 3 in women are associated with their ability to read the mind in the eyes — known as cognitive empathy.The closest genes in this tiny stretch of chromosome 3 include LRRN1 (Leucine Rich Neuronal 1) which is highly active in a part of the human brain called the striatum — which has been shown using brain scanning to play a role in cognitive empathy, the researchers said. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”This is an important step forward for the field of social neuroscience and adds one more piece to the puzzle of what may cause variation in cognitive empathy,” said Varun Warrier, doctoral student at the University of Cambridge. Scientists have built upon a study first performed 20 years ago, called the “Reading the Mind in the Eyes” test.For the new study, published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry, the team analysed cognitive empathy in 89,000 people on this test. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe results confirmed that women on average do score better on this test because of gene’s influence.In addition, the researchers found that genetic variants that contribute to higher scores in the test also increase the risk of anorexia, but not autism, the researchers noted.”We are excited by this new discovery, and are now testing if the results replicate, and exploring precisely what these genetic variants do in the brain, to give rise to individual differences in cognitive empathy,” explained Simon Baron-Cohen, Professor at the University of Cambridge.last_img read more

Oranges pullout from Israel gives lift to boycott movement

first_imgJERUSALEM (AP) — French telecom giant Orange SA’s declaration that it wants to cut business ties with Israel has given a boost to the burgeoning anti-Israel boycott movement while also drawing a sharp rebuke from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday.The move bodes poorly for Israel at a time of growing international anger over its West Bank settlements and could potentially put almost any Israeli company in the crosshairs of the boycott campaign. It also has illustrated just how deeply intertwined Israeli settlements are with the rest of the country. 4 must play golf courses in Arizona 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility U.S. Ambassador Dan Shapiro told Israel’s Army Radio on Thursday that Washington would continue to oppose “inappropriate one-sided criticism against Israel.” But he said this job would be harder to do because peace negotiations are not taking place.“Talks were always the most effective tool to beat these efforts,” he said. “So if we don’t have any talks now, and most of the world doesn’t think they will take place anytime soon, how can we fight boycott, sanctions and delegitimization, and how can we keep two state solution realistic?”___Associated Press writers Daniel Estrin and Ian Deitch in Jerusalem and Angela Charlton in Paris contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches With Richard’s comments, Orange appeared to becoming the largest and best-known company to yield to pressure from a global movement calling for boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israel.Israeli officials say the so-called BDS movement is not out to promote peace, but instead aims to “delegitimize” the country’s very existence as a Jewish state. They point to the grassroots BDS movement’s support for millions of Palestinian refugees to return to ancestors’ homes in what is now Israel. Israel rejects the “right of return,” saying it would end the country’s character as a Jewish and democratic state.In a statement issued in Paris, Orange said it sought to clarify that it wants to pull out of Israel for business reasons, not political ones.The company said it doesn’t want to maintain a presence in countries where Orange itself is not a phone provider, and that the move is “in conformity with its brand policy.” Orange said it “has no reason to take part … in a debate of a political nature.”Other Israeli officials also denounced Richard’s comments.Culture Minister Miri Regev called on the French government to “show zero tolerance for anti-Semitism.” She also urged Jewish customers of Orange in France and around the world to drop their service and switch carriers. But virtually any Israeli company could come under scrutiny. Israeli banks, for instance, have branches in settlements and lend mortgages to residents. Israeli gas stations and supermarkets operate in settlements, and every major company is likely to employ someone who lives in a settlement.Isaac Benbenisti, the incoming chief executive of Partner Communications, said he was “outraged” by Orange’s decision. “The story is not a story about Partner and Orange. The story is a story about the state of Israel that is under a worldwide attack, mainly in western Europe, by sources that want to hurt us,” he told The Associated Press.As Netanyahu faces growing pressure to re-launch peace talks, he must now also search for a formula that can address the world’s anger over the settlements while keeping his new government intact. The narrow coalition is dominated by pro-settler hardliners who oppose Palestinian independence.Since winning re-election, the Israeli leader has tried to backtrack on a campaign statement that he would not allow the establishment of a Palestinian state on his watch. Earlier this week he renewed a call to restart peace talks without any preconditions. But so far, few leaders appear to be taking him seriously. In an Israeli TV interview, President Barack Obama said the international community remains skeptical. Netanyahu responded angrily on Thursday, calling on “the French government to publicly repudiate the miserable statement and miserable action by a company that is under its partial ownership.”The remarks came a day after Orange’s chief executive Stephane Richard said he would end his company’s relationship with Partner Communications Ltd. “tomorrow” if he could, but that he was bound by a contract for the time being. He cited the company’s sensitivity to Arab countries. Partner licenses the Orange brand name in Israel.Richard’s announcement caused uproar in Israel.“The absurd drama in which the democracy that observes human rights — the state of Israel — and which defends itself from barrages of missiles and terrorist tunnels, and then absorbs automatic condemnations and attempted boycotts, this absurd drama will not be forgiven,” Netanyahu also said.Pro-Palestinian activists in France have been pushing for Orange to end the relationship over Partner’s activities in Israeli settlements. The settlements, built on land the Palestinians want for a future state, are seen as illegitimate by the international community. “The boycotters of Israel are not looking … to partition the land of Israel, but to erase the state of Israel,” Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said this week. “This is anti-Semitism under a new guise.”The BDS gains have accompanied an official Palestinian campaign of targeting Israel in international institutions like the United Nations and the International Criminal Court. Last week, Israel fended off a Palestinian attempt to kick it out of the global soccer body FIFA.The Palestinians say such tactics are necessary after more than 20 years of failed peace efforts. The Palestinians claim the West Bank, east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip — lands captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war — for their state. With more than 550,000 Israelis now living in settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, they say that time is running out for a two-state solution.“The Israeli reaction to the boycott movement means that our political movement began to affect them and to scare them,” said Nabil Shaath, a senior Palestinian official.Partner was targeted because it keeps communications equipment in the West Bank that serve Jewish settlers. It also “sponsored” Israeli military units that took part in last year’s Gaza war by giving soldiers discounted service. Many local companies have similar partnerships in Israel, where military service is mandatory. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Top Stories Sponsored Stories Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober The French government, which did not immediately comment on Richard’s announcement, has good relations with Israel and accusations of anti-Semitism are a sensitive issue — especially in the wake of attacks by Islamic radicals who killed 17 people in a kosher supermarket and a satirical newspaper in January. France is home to Western Europe’s largest Muslim and Jewish communities and has sought to maintain good ties with Israel’s government as well as Arab allies.At the same time, the BDS movement has been active in France, and staged a protest at Orange’s annual shareholder meeting last month. Activists have also called attention to activities in Israel of French companies Danone, L’Oreal, hotel chain Accor and energy company Veolia.Orange, one of the world’s largest telecom companies, provides mobile phone services in about 30 countries. It says it has about 200 million customers worldwide, and declared revenue last year of 39 billion euros ($44 billion). The French government holds a roughly 13.5 percent stake in Orange.The BDS movement has been showing increasing signs of traction. Several high profile artists have canceled performances in Israel and the movement has also become increasingly popular on U.S. college campuses. Comments   Share   last_img read more

an endocrinologist; a kidney specialist; a podiatrist; two cardiologists; a cardiac electrophysiologist; an infectious-disease specialist; a pulmonologist; an ear nose and throat specialist; a urologist; a gastroenterologist; a neurologist; a nutritionist; a general surgeon; a thoracic surgeon; and a pain specialist The man underwent 12 procedures including cardiac catheterization a pacemaker implant and a bone-marrow biopsy (to investigate only mild anemia) Every day he was in the hospital his insurance company probably got billed nearly $1000 for doctor visits alone When he was discharged (with only minimal improvement in his shortness of breath) follow-up visits were scheduled for him with seven specialists This case in which expert consultations sprouted with little rhyme reason or coordination reinforced a lesson I learned many times in my first year as an attending physician: in our health care system if you have a slew of specialists and a willing patient almost any sort of terrible excess can occur What to do about this overspecialization One option is accountable-care organizations an idea put forward by the Affordable Care Act in which teams of doctors would be responsible (and paid accordingly) for their patients clinical outcomes This would force specialists to coordinate care Unfortunately most doctors notoriously independent and already smothered in paperwork have generally performed poorly in this regard Reforms will also have to focus on patient education Medical specialty societies recently released lists of tests and procedures that are not beneficial to patients By using these lists cardiologists have been able to decrease their use of imaging tests by 20% Better-informed patients might be the most potent restraint on overspecialized care A large percentage of health care costs is a consequence of induced demand that is physicians persuading patients to consume services they would not have chosen had they been better educated If patients were more involved in medical decisionmaking there would be more constraints on doctors behavior decreasing the possibility of unnecessary testing This could serve as a potent check on what the doctor ordered Today roughly 1 of 6 dollars spent in America goes toward health care If we do not succeed in controlling these costs they will gradually crowd out other necessary societal expenditures Improving health literacy will be critical to these efforts Without a better understanding of what doctors are actually doing one may end up like the patient who had 17 consultants and 12 procedures and who reinforced a further lesson I have learned many times since entering practice: when too many specialists are involved in a case the result too often is waste disorganization and overload Jauhar is a cardiologist and the author of Intern: A Doctors Initiation and the new memoir out today Doctored: The Disillusionment of an American Physician Contact us at [email protected] USA Today reports.

want to appeal to anyone who as its mission statement puts it “champions publicly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity” Organizers have emphasized that the march is not just for practicing scientists but for “anyone who believes in empirical science” The event at first just an idea bouncing around social media gained real life last month after a website Twitter account and public Facebook page—now with more than 300000 likes—sprang up over the course of a few days An affiliated “secret” Facebook group attracted almost 800000 members in less than a week and more than 70 Twitter handles have popped up to promote sister marches across the country Scientists began organizing only 3 days after President Donald Trump took office as alarm—sparked by a campaign that in many ways appeared to dismiss the contributions of scientific research—ignited over Senate hearings on controversial cabinet picks and mandates curtailing public communication from scientific agencies Many scientists took the administration’s promotion of “alternative facts” and continued shunning of scientific leaders as signs that science may come under attack It’s not the first time that Trump’s actions have triggered activism among scientists a group that as a whole has traditionally couched itself as nonpartisan At the December 2016 meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco California researchers rallied together to protest climate change doubters among Trump’s cabinet picks And at the Women’s March on Washington dozens of lab coat–clad scientists marched together armed with pro-science signs But the march has spurred debate about how its message should be framed—and whether it is even a good idea Some fear a demonstration led by researchers might only serve to paint scientists as an interest group further politicizing scientific issues And at least one veteran science lobbyist has urged organizers to make sure it’s a march for science not scientists The march organizers—an eclectic mix of researchers and science communicators who came together online—were unprepared for how quickly the march gained support scrambling to draft a mission statement appoint a team and set an official march date over the weekend On their Facebook group and in an email to ScienceInsider organizers repeatedly asked for patience as they strove to get their “messaging action items and announcement right the first time” Although the less-than-rapid progress triggered some impatience among followers many others posted their support suggesting it wouldn’t truly be a scientist’s march if the process wasn’t somewhat slow and deliberate “We scientists certainly understand that only 10 [percent] of what we do is worthy of public discussion Plod on” wrote retired chemist Tim Clair in one of hundreds of Facebook comments responding to the team’s promises that information would be coming soon March organizers are

Joe Brock HARARE (Reuters) – At least one person was killed in Zimbabwe’s capital Harare on Wednesday as soldiers opened fire to disperse stone-throwing opposition supporters who accused the ruling party of trying to rig Monday’s presidential election witnesses said Gunfire crackled in the streets while troops backed by armoured vehicles and a military helicopter and some with their faces masked cleared the streets One person was shot dead near a bus rank witnesses at the scene told a Reuters photographer The deployment of soldiers and their beating of unarmed protesters is a setback to President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s efforts to shed Zimbabwe’s pariah status after decades of repression under Robert Mugabe who was ousted in a coup in November Even before the violence European Union observers questioned the conduct of the presidential and parliamentary poll the first since Mugabe’s forced resignation after nearly 40 years in charge of the Southern African nation The unrest started soon after opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) leader Nelson Chamisa claimed he had won the popular vote Scores of his supporters who had been burning tyres in the streets then attacked riot police near the Zimbabwe Election Commision (ZEC) headquarters Officers responded with tear gas and water-cannon "I was making a peaceful protest I was beaten by soldiers" said Norest Kemvo who had gashes to his face and right hand "This is our government This is exactly why we wanted change They are stealing our election" United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on Zimbabwe’s political leaders and people to exercise restraint and reject any form of violence Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi said the army had been called in to ensure "peace and tranquility" A police spokeswoman said the troops were deployed at the request of police who could not cope with the violence They will remain under police command the spokeswoman Charity Charamba said However without the international community’s stamp of approval for the election Zimbabwe’s next leader will struggle to unlock the billions of dollars of international donor finance needed to get the shattered economy back on its feet The EU observers expressed concern about delays in releasing the results of the presidential contest a two-horse race between Chamisa and Mnangagwa head of the ruling ZANU-PF party As gunfire echoed through downtown Harare Mnangagwa called for calm and urge patience while results were collated Many protesters accused the army of unprovoked brutality "We had no weapons Why are the army here beating us shooting us This is not an election it is a disgrace on our country" one young man Colbert Mugwenhi said A Reuters witness saw soldiers with sticks beat two people and counted at least five trucks full of soldiers "We are tired of them stealing our votes This time we will not allow it we will fight" said one protester who wore a red MDC beret in central Harare "ONE-SIDED" The electoral commission had said it would start announcing results for the presidential race from 1030 GMT but that was then pushed back at least 24 hours With three seats yet to be declared in the parliamentary contest ZANU-PF had 144 seats compared to 61 for the MDC meaning the ruling party achieved the two-thirds majority that permits it to change the constitution at will Chamisa said the early release of the parliamentary results was a deliberate ploy to prepare Zimbabweans for a victory by Mnangagwa a former national security chief nicknamed ‘The Crocodile’ and commonly referred to by the initials ED "The strategy is meant to prepare Zimbabwe mentally to accept fake presidential results We’ve more votes than ED We won the popular vote (and) will defend it" Chamisa said on Twitter Before the violence EU Chief Observer Elmar Brok said he did not yet know if the shortcomings would have a material effect on the outcome of the vote but criticised the electoral commission for being at times "one-sided" The EU’s assessment is critical in determining whether Zimbabwe can repair its image and attract the foreign investors needed for an economic revival The EU did not understand why the release of the presidential result was taking so long Brok said "The longer it lasts that the results of the presidential election is not known the more lack of credibility it provides" he said Zimbabwe was once one of Africa’s most promising economies but became descended into corruption mismanagement and diplomatic isolation in the latter stages of Mugabe’s administration Its population of 13 million is struggling amid shortages of foreign currency unemployment above 80 percent and lack of foreign investment (Writing by James Macharia and Ed Cropley Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg and Angus MacSwan) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed By Doina Chiacu and Andrew Osborn WASHINGTON/MOSCOW (Reuters) – US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet for their first summit on July 16 in Helsinki a venue famed for its Cold War diplomacy with nervous US allies in Europe and Russia sceptics looking on The Kremlin and the White House simultaneously announced the place and date a day after reaching agreement for the two leaders to meet following a visit to Moscow by US national security adviser John BoltonTrump will meet Putin after attending a July 11-12 summit of NATO leaders and a visit to Britain The date will give Putin a chance to attend the July 15 closing ceremony of the soccer World Cup hosted by Russia The two leaders have met twice before on the sidelines of international gatherings and spoken at least eight times by phone They have also made positive comments about each other now and then with Putin lauding Trump’s handling of the US economy "The two leaders will discuss relations between the United States and Russia and a range of national security issues" the White House said in a statement similar to one released by the Kremlin The summit could irritate US allies who want to isolate Putin such as Britain or countries such as Ukraine who are nervous about what they see as Trump’s overly friendly attitude towards the Russian leader It is also likely to go down badly among critics who question Trump’s commitment to the NATO alliance and who have been concerned about his frictions with longtime allies such as Canada and Germany over trade Relations between Washington and Moscow became the most strained since the end of the Cold War during the administration of President Barack Obama which imposed sanctions for Russia’s annexation of Crimea from Ukraine US intelligence agencies accused Russia of interfering in the 2016 US election an allegation Moscow has repeatedly denied The summit is a boost for Finland whose capital hosted major Cold War summits between leaders such as Leonid Brezhnev and Gerald Ford in 1975 and Mikhail Gorbachev and George HW Bush in 1990 before going on to host a meeting between Boris Yeltsin and Bill Clinton in 1997 Moscow hopes the Helsinki summit will restart a dialogue between Washington and Moscow said Vassily Nebenzia the Russian ambassador to the United Nations "We need each other not because we want to love each other We don’t want and we don’t need to be loved We simply need to hold normal pragmatic relations with a major country upon which – like what lies upon us – a lot in the world depends" Nebenzia told a news conference at the United Nations Nebenzia said he expects the summit to primarily focus on US-Russia relations but that "we will not be able to avoid" the civil war in Syria the 2015 international accord on Iran’s nuclear program which Trump has repudiated and the Ukraine crisis US Senator Lindsey Graham of Trump’s Republican Party said he hoped Trump would raise Russia’s conduct in southwestern Syria where Syrian government forces have been battling rebels in a "de-escalation zone" agreed last year by the United States Jordan and Assad’s ally Russia to curb fighting "The question is are we going to let Putin walk all over us Had eight years of that kind of tired of it" said Graham who serves on the Senate’s Armed Services committee NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg played down worries about the summit saying it was in line with the alliance’s own policies which advocated dialogue with Moscow Others were less sanguine "There is unease about this meeting just as there is unease about Trump" said one senior NATO diplomat who declined to be identified because of the subject’s sensitivity "What is he going to say what is his preparation is he aware of the symbolism US containment of Russia is going further than Europe would want but if Trump then strikes up a friendship with Putin it could leave us more in the dark about US policy" the diplomat said Daniel Fried a former assistant secretary of State for European affairs said allied leaders are worried that Trump will repeat at the NATO summit what occurred earlier this month at the G7 in Canada when tensions over trade erupted and Trump declined to sign the leaders’ closing statement "What people are worried about is the president going into this meeting (with Putin) with a weaker hand if he is seen as blowing up alliances and not having a very good trip to London” said Fried now at the Washington-based Atlantic Council LOW EXPECTATIONS Ukraine wants Russia to return the annexed Crimea region and for pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine to hand back control of territory The Ukrainian presidential administration did not reply to a request for comment but political analysts there said Russia was unlikely to consider a deal on Ukraine until after Ukrainian presidential and parliamentary elections next year "There will be no sensational results" said Volodymyr Fesenko a Ukrainian political analyst "At the moment there are no obvious preconditions for any kind of compromise" Trump has long expressed a desire for better relations with Russia even as Washington tightens sanctions and the Kremlin has long pushed for a summit Moscow made no secret on Wednesday of its delight that such a meeting had finally been agreed with Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov saying on Wednesday that the two men were likely to talk for several hours He spoke of a possible joint declaration on improving US-Russia relations and international security Trump congratulated Putin by phone in March after the Russian leader’s landslide re-election victory Opposition activist Alexei Navalny was barred from running But since then already poor ties between Washington and Moscow have deteriorated over the conflict in Syria and the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain which prompted big diplomatic expulsions in both countries Expectations for a summit are therefore low A special counsel in the United States has indicted Russian firms and individuals as part of a probe into possible collusion between Russia and Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign Trump denies wrongdoing and calls the investigation a "witch hunt" Bolton told reporters in Moscow on Wednesday he expected Russian interference in US politics to be discussed at the summit ‘SMALL STEPS’ "Even small steps in reducing tensions would be in everybody’s interest"

smoking a joint now and then will leave you feeling … pretty good man But smoking a lot of marijuana over a long time might do just the opposite Scientists have found that the brains of pot abusers react less strongly to the chemical dopamine which is responsible for creating feelings of pleasure and reward Their blunted dopamine responses could leave heavy marijuana users living in a fog—and not the good kind After high-profile legalizations in Colorado Washington and Uruguay marijuana is becoming more and more available in many parts of the world Still scientific research on the drug has lagged Pot contains lots of different chemicals and scientists don’t fully understand how those components interact to produce the unique effects of different strains Its illicit status in most of the world has also thrown up barriers to research In the United States for example any study involving marijuana requires approval from four different federal agencies including the Drug Enforcement Administration Politics also plays a role in marijuana research One of the unanswered questions about the drug is what exactly it does to our brains both during the high and afterward Of particular interest to scientists is marijuana’s effect on dopamine a main ingredient in the brain’s reward system Pleasurable activities such as eating sex and some drugs all trigger bursts of dopamine essentially telling the brain “Hey that was great—let’s do it again soon” Scientists know that drug abuse can wreak havoc on the dopamine system Cocaine and alcohol abusers for example are known to produce far less dopamine in their brains than people who aren’t addicted to those drugs But past studies had hinted that the same might not be true for those who abuse marijuana Nora Volkow the director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse in Bethesda Maryland decided to take a closer look at the brains of marijuana abusers For help she and her team turned to another drug: methylphenidate (aka Ritalin) a stimulant known to increase the amount of dopamine in the brain The researchers gave methylphenidate to 24 marijuana abusers (who had smoked a median of about five joints a day 5 days a week for 10 years) and 24 controls Brain imaging revealed that both groups produced just as much extra dopamine after taking the drug But whereas the controls experienced increased heart rates and blood pressure readings and reported feeling restless and high the marijuana abusers didn’t Their responses were so weak that Volkow had to double-check that the methylphenidate she was giving them hadn’t passed its expiration date This lack of a physical response suggests that marijuana abusers might have damaged reward circuitry in their brains Volkow and her team report online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Unlike cocaine and alcohol abusers marijuana abusers appear to produce the same amount of dopamine as people who don’t abuse the drug But their brains don’t know what to do with it This disconnect could be “a key mechanism underlying cannabis addiction” says Raul Gonzalez a neuropsychologist at Florida International University in Miami who was not involved with the research The study “suggests that cannabis users may experience less reward from things others generally find pleasurable and contrary to popular stereotypes that they generally feel more irritable stressed and just plain crummy This may contribute to ongoing and escalating cannabis use among such individuals” But do marijuana abusers smoke a lot because they feel crummy or do they feel crummy because they smoke a lot Volkow doesn’t know Not being able to tease out cause and effect “is a limitation in a study like this one” she says Perhaps the abusers already had less reactive dopamine systems and started smoking a ton of pot to cope with their general malaise Or maybe prolonged marijuana abuse is actually damaging their brains’ reward circuitry leading to the apathy and social withdrawal that marijuana abusers often experience The lessons for recreational users of marijuana if any are unclear This study used “hardcore volunteer[s]” who were “using quite a lot of cannabis” says Paul Stokes a psychiatrist at Imperial College London who wasn’t involved in the research As such “it probably tells you more about cannabis dependence than about recreational use” But when he did a similar brain imaging study of people who smoked marijuana no more than once a week he observed “similar themes” when it came to dopamine All of these are important questions to answer Volkow says As availability of the drug increases she says it’s something “we all need to know” ISIS and race relations on the survey a total of N9bn has also been set aside in the 2018 budget

The latest controversy involving a flagship programme of the UPA government has its roots in the order of a Goa court asking the UIDAI to give the CBI biometrics of all residents enrolled with Aadhaar in the state to help solve the gangrape of a seven-year-old girl as the database — which includes recording of fingerprints iris and facial images of applicants — is supposed to be devoid of duplication and tamper-proof The girl was raped in a school in Goa’s Vasco city 14 months back and the case is yet to be cracked However there were some chance fingerprints recovered from the scene of crime and the magistrate thought UIDAI could match these fingerprints with its database to help ascertain the identities of the assailants Aggrieved by this order the UIDAI moved Bombay High Court and claimed validation of the magistrate’s order will open the floodgates of such directives by other courts as well other authorities The high court noted that the UIDAI has agreed to test the competence of its database in comparing the chance fingerprints with its biometric record The high court also asked the director general of the Central Forensic Science Laboratory to examine the technological capabilities of the UIDAI database Terming the high court’s order as “erroneous” the UIDAI has petitioned the Supreme Court that the UIDAI system has been developed “for civilian use and for non-forensic purposes” Even as the UIDAI describes its biometric technology as one of the best in the world it pointed out that there was a 0057 per cent occurrence of false identification Therefore the the implications of the False Positive Identification Rate of 0057 per cent when applied in the UIDAI database of 60 crore residents will imply false matches of lakh of residents according the authority “This means any such random search which was now being demanded by the Respondent No1 (CBI) even if implemented in the current system would put lakhs of innocent people under the scanner” said its petition besides saying such a precedent could lead to a plethora of similar requests for assistance in criminal investigation The UIDAI also asserted that sharing information with other agencies would violate a person’s right to privacy since the current data-sharing policy and guidelines clearly provides that biometric data cannot be shared without the consent of the resident “Building a system that can search using latent fingerprints quite like criminal database searches is not within the constitutional and legal mandate and scope of UIDAI and fundamentally against the core reason residents have provided their data voluntarily to UIDAI” it maintained The UIDAI added that the questions relating to privacy was also a subject matter of the bunch of PILs currently being adjudicated by the SC and hence no order could be passed to share information of the applicants in the meantime The SC is hearing a bunch of petitions that have challenged the validity of the Aadhaar card in absence of a pertinent legislation and has also disputed its compulsory nature By an interim last September the apex court restricted all authorities from denying a benefit or service to any
