Many investors are currently avoiding UK shares. I think this is a huge mistake. In my opinion, there’s a whole range of blue-chip stocks in the FTSE 100 that appear undervalued.I reckon these stocks could produce large total returns for their shareholders in the years ahead. As the UK economy recovers from the pandemic, they may be able to capitalise on the recovery. 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…FTSE 100 UK shares for 2021 B&M European Value has seen sales and earnings jump this year. I don’t think this is a one-off. The company has been steadily grabbing market share in the retail sector for years. Customers appear to love the group’s no-frills, low-cost offering. And as long as management follows its tried and tested playbook of keeping costs and prices low, I reckon B&M will continue to report growth in the years ahead. Another retailer I’d buy in a basket of FTSE 100 UK shares in 2021 is Kingfisher. I think it’s fair to say the company’s management wasn’t expecting the success the owner of B&Q has seen this year. Consumers were queueing up to visit the group’s hardware stores when they reopened. Demand has continued to remain high.The surging housing market has buoyed sales at B&Q. With the stamp duty cut set to remain in place until the end of March, I think the rising demand will allow Kingfisher to continue to perform ahead of expectations well into 2021. On the same note, I’m also excited about the outlook for FTSE 100 homebuilder Persimmon. Rising property prices and limited supply of affordable homes suggest this business may continue to see increasing sales and profits.Renewable energy My research suggests Johnson Matthey may be one of the best UK shares to buy for the renewable energy revolution. The company is one of the leading authorities on battery and hydrogen technology. These two essential technologies will be critical in developing the world’s energy storage infrastructure over the next few years. This FTSE 100 firm is a leader in other sectors as well. Its vast product portfolio and experience in working with speciality chemicals may allow it to continue to grow year after year. No matter if investors are interested in renewable energy or not, Johnson Matthey appears to have something for everyone. Finally, one of the UK shares that look set to benefit from the ever-growing demand for e-commerce is Mondi. The paper and packing company has profited from the sector’s growth over the past few years but, as 2020 has shown, e-commerce is still in its infancy. The market is projected to grow at a double-digit rate in 2020, providing a sound financial base from which to grow well into the next decade.As one of the few large paper and packing companies in the country, Mondi should be able to profit substantially from this growth, in my opinion. last_img read more

England 16 Scotland 12 – The Verdict

first_imgGood times: England celebrate the try5. Selection – There are still concerns at the XV Martin Johnson picked to play Scotland. I’d bring in Alex Corbisiero for Matt Stevens – his first act as a replacement here was to earn England a penalty at the scrum. He’s an out-and-out loosehead and should be starting in the No 1 shirt. I’d also bring in Toby Flood for Mike Tindall, giving England a more creative 10-12 axis as well as one with a good kicking game. Ben Youngs also disappointed against the Scots, he got too het up and was arguing with the officials; I’d bring in Joe Simpson for the France game. He has the pace to really spark England in attack and could bring the best out of what is a dangerous back three but one that hasn’t had too many decent opportunities. Late show: Chris Ashton beats Chris Paterson to score the winning try for EnglandBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features Editor at Eden ParkON THE evidence of Saturday’s matches, the England-France semi-final will be a dire affair. Then again, both teams could spark into life!France were abysmal as they lost to Tonga; they lacked ideas in attack and dropped off too many tackles. If Tonga’s handling had been better they might well have got close to scoring the four tries needed to knock Les Bleus out of the tournament.If that match gave the southern hemisphere nothing to fear, then England did little to improve Europe’s World Cup prospects. Yes, they won their game against Scotland, a late Chris Ashton try snatching the victory, but the flaws were there for all to see.Scotland came close to achieving the eight-point win necessary to secure a quarter-final place with their well-worked tactics, so what problems must England address going into the knockout stages?1. Creativity – Or more accurately the lack of it. England’s game plan centres around trying to get over the gain-line from phase one, usually with a charge up the middle, and if that fails they opt for the up-and-under. Why constantly kick the ball away? They need to be more creative in their running game, bringing players in on the angle and having runners on the ball-carrier’s shoulder, as their one-dimensional style will not reap rewards. They should also be getting the ball away quicker from the breakdown and the scrum – too much dawdling allows opponents to reset their defensive line. England’s players react after England’s wing Chris Ashton scored a try during the 2011 Rugby World Cup pool B match England vs Scotland at Eden Park in Auckland on October 1, 2011. AFP PHOTO / PHILIPPE LOPEZ (Photo credit should read PHILIPPE LOPEZ/AFP/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img 2. Discipline – Regardless of whether the referees’ decisions have always been right, England have given away far too many penalties in their last four games and must cut their infringements or they will make it easy for teams to build up leads. They must be quicker at adapting to the referee’s interpretations. Dodgy boot: Wilko had another off day3. Kicking – Jonny Wilkinson now has a kicking success rate of less than 50% at this World Cup and the team’s reliability on his boot needs to be addressed. It could well be the pressure, rather than the balls, that is now affecting his performance. England either need to relieve some of that pressure by opting to go for the corner for the more difficult kicks or bring in Toby Flood, who slotted the toughest kick of the evening when converting Chris Ashton’s try.4. Attitude – England lacked the same urgency as Scotland in the first half at Eden Park and can’t be caught napping like that in the knockout stages. France are a team who will pounce on the slightest opportunity to score a try and they have the playmakers to break from deep, so England must ensure they’re on the ball from the off.last_img read more

RSF launches constitutional appeal against German anti-whistleblower penal provision

first_imgNews January 19, 2017 RSF launches constitutional appeal against German anti-whistleblower penal provision News German Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe / AFP News June 2, 2021 Find out more German BND Act: A missed opportunity for press freedom An alliance of German civil rights organizations, journalists and bloggers has lodged a constitutional appeal against a new anti-whistleblower provision in the German Penal Code. The recently introduced statuary offence of “data fencing” (section 202d of the Penal Code) penalizes the handling of leaked data without ensuring adequate protection for the media. The law thereby criminalizes an important part of the work of investigative journalists and bloggers, as well as of their sources and of experts assisting in their investigations.The constitutional appeal was lodged jointly by Reporters Without Borders (RSF) Germany, the Society for Civil Rights (Gesellschaft für Freiheitsrechte, GFF), the netzpolitik.org online journal, as well as by seven journalists and bloggers. These include Peter Hornung of NDR radio, who coordinated the ARD public radio network’s coverage of the “Panama Papers” scandal, and Hajo Seppelt, a freelancer for Germany’s public ARD TV network whose investigations were crucial in uncovering Russia’s systematic doping ahead of the Rio Olympic Games. Further complainants include a judge, a lawyer and an IT expert, all of whom provide advice to investigative journalists on a regular basis.A LEGAL MINEFIELD FOR INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS AND THEIR HELPERS“The data fencing provision opens a legal loophole enabling police searches of editorial offices that have been ruled unconstitutional for good reason with regard to other laws”, said GFF chairman Ulf Buermeyer. “Rather than undermining of press freedom by creating new criminal offences such as data fencing, we should have more freedoms for the media including for bloggers and for decentrally working editorial teams,” said netzpolitik.org’s editor in chief Markus Beckedahl.“If even a well-established democracy such as Germany criminalizes the work of journalists and their helpers simply because it includes handling leaked data, it provides a disastrous precedent internationally,”said Christian Mihr, executive director of RSF Germany.The constitutional appeal was written by Katharina de la Durantaye of Berlin’s Humboldt University, the Cologne-based criminal defense lawyer Nikolaos Gazeas and Sebastian J. Golla of Mainz University.PRESS FREEDOM MUST APPLY EQUALLY FOR BLOGGERS, CITIZEN JOURNALISTS AND ASSISTANTSThe complainants hope that the Federal Constitutional Court will declare the “data fencing” provision void. That way the complainants, and with them all journalists in Germany, would be protected from criminal prosecution, and more pressingly from police and prosecutors’ measures such as office searches and the confiscation of investigation material. The constitutional appeal also aims to avert the “chilling effect” of the law that may potentially scare off whistleblowers and other sources from collaborating with investigative journalists.The complainants further hope to obtain from the Constitutional Court a timely interpretation of press privilege – one that should expressly include new forms of journalism such as blogging, and should include in legal protections those who assist journalists in their professional tasks, such as legal or IT experts. A clear ruling in this regard would send an important message internationally in the face of efforts by dictatorships and authoritarian regimes to exclude bloggers and citizen journalists from press freedom protections: Such governments often insist on a narrow definition of journalism in order to control the flow of news and information more easily.UP TO THREE YEARS IMPRISONMENT FOR HANDLING ILLEGALLY OBTAINED DATAThe new criminal offence came into force on 18 December 2015, two months after being passed by the Bundestag (German federal parliament) without debate and well-hidden in a legislative package re-introducing bulk data retention powers for telecommunications metadata. The complaint was financed by netzpolitik.org, RSF Germany and the GFF, and was filed with the Federal Constitutional Court on 16 December 2016. The provision on data fencing penalizes the handling of data that was obtained by illegal means. Journalists could thus face up to three years of imprisonment or a fine. Adding to this is a supplement in section 97 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, establishing an exemption from the confiscation ban related to the reporter’s privilege, or the right of refusal to give evidence in court. This new exemption already applies in cases of suspected data fencing, thus opening a legal backdoor to allow searches of editorial offices and the seizing of potential evidence found there.INADEQUATE PROTECTION FOR JOURNALISTS’ SOURCES AND HELPERSBy penalizing the handling of leaked data in principle, the new penal provision curtails the freedom of journalistic investigation in a disproportionate manner. The only exemptions included in the law are actions “exclusively serving lawful professional duties”, defined to cover in particular the actions of “occupational” (i.e. professional) journalists. These exemptions are in effect incomplete even for traditional journalists, as they do not include activities related to, for instance, side jobs or investigations initially started out of private interest. Even more inadequate are the protections for external experts such as lawyers or IT-specialists who often provide crucial assistance to journalists by helping them examine and evaluate leaked data. The main threat emanating from the data fencing ban, however, are not so much actual criminal convictions of journalists, but rather criminal investigations and police searches of editorial offices. Such actions by the authorities, for which the legal threshold is relatively low, would undermine the trust between journalists and their sources, thereby effectively weakening journalists’ possibilities for investigative research.Had the statutory offence of data fencing already been in place during recent major journalistic investigations such as those into the Panama Papers or into Russia’s systematic state-sponsored doping, some of the complainants’ actions probably would have been classified as criminal offences. Hence they are claiming, in the constitutional appeal, violations of a number of their constitutional rights, including freedom of the press and of broadcasting, freedom of occupation, the constitutional principle of equality before the law and the principle of certainty in penal law.

While directing the authority to decide the application for sanction expeditiously, the single bench of Justice Nataraj Rangasway said, “Action of the Respondent No. 1 requiring the Petitioner No. 2 [Organ donor] to furnish the consent from her estranged father tantamount to imposing an onerous condition which cannot perhaps be complied.” The court also directed the authority to decide the application filed by the petitioners within seven days. It said, “Having regard to the fact that the petitioner no.1 is stated to be on dialysis for more than three years, the respondent no.1 is requested to expedite the decision within seven days from the date of the receipt of a copy of this Order.” Background Petitioner No. 1, suffering from renal failure, was aggrieved by a Certificate issued by the Authroization Committee, withholding the permission for organ donation by Petitioner No. 2 (wife of cousin of Petitioner no. 1). She had submitted that previously, her cousin had volunteered to donate his kidney and after interviewing all her near relatives, the Authority had permitted the donation. However, when a final check was conducted on the scheduled date of transplantation, the said cousin was diagnosed as Type II diabetic and thus the transplantation was abandoned. In this backdrop she contended that the authority was well aware that her near relatives, such as her husband, daughters, brothers and sister were either medically not fit or their blood groups did not match with her. Therefore, the authority was not justified in directing her to show cause why her “near relatives” could not be donors. Further, she had contended that the authority was unjustified in asking the Petitioner No. 2 to furnish a consent letter from her “estranged father”, especially when the donor-Petitioner’s husband had furnished an affidavit consenting to the donation. Petitioner No. 1 contended that though the donor-Petitioner was not a “near relative” of hers, Section 9(3) of the Transplantation of Human Organs and Tissues Act, 1994 permits donation of organs by persons who were not near relatives “by reason of affection or attachment towards the recipient.” She averred that the intendment of the Act is to prevent “commercial dealings” in human organs and the same should not have been an impediment in her case as the donor-Petitioner had offered to donate her kidney out of “natural love”. Findings The Court set aside the “onerous condition” requiring the Petitioner No. 2 to obtain consent from her father, who had apparently abandoned deserted her and her mother three decades ago. On the other condition imposed by the Respondent-authority on the Petitioner No. 1 to disclose as to why her near relatives have not offered to donate the organ, the court was of the opinion that the condition “cannot be found fault with”, as the whole purpose and the intendment of the Act of 1994 is to ascertain and rule out commercial consideration for the intended transplantation. At the same time however, the Court remarked, “Respondent no.1 should take cognizance of the fact that it had earlier granted the permission for the husband of the petitioner no.2 to donate the kidney at which point in time, the respondent no.1 must have ascertained the question as to why the near relatives of the petitioner no.1 were not donating the kidney. … Having regard to the fact that the petitioner no.1 is stated to be on dialysis for more than three years, the respondent no.1 is requested to expedite the decision within seven days from the date of the receipt of a copy of this Order.” The court has asked the authority to consider the application for sanction in the light of the lab reports taken previously, and also taking into consideration the fact that it had earlier granted the permission for donation by the Petitioner’s cousin at which point it must have ascertained the question as to why the near relatives had not offered to donate the kidney. “It shall reassess the medical condition of the petitioner no.1 to ascertain whether the transplantation would be beneficial or fruitful,” the court added. Significantly, the State had opposed the writ petition on the grounds of maintainability. It had contended that if the Petitioner was aggrieved by withholding of sanction for donation, she should have preferred a statutory appeal under Section 17 of the Act. Rejecting this argument at the outset, the court clarified that the impugned Certificate was not an Order rejecting the application filed by the petitioners but was in the nature of an intimation requiring the petitioners to furnish additional documents. “It therefore follows that the respondent no.1 has not taken a final decision on the application filed by the petitioners. An appeal under Section 17 of the Act of 1994 would arise only when a final decision is passed. Since the respondent no.1 has not taken a final decision, the threshold contention of the learned Government Pleader that the writ petition is not maintainable in view of the alternative remedy, is rejected,” it said.

The Division Bench comprising Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar expressed hope that the Police and the District Administration all over the State would leave no stone unturned to see that the Government guidelines /directives are complied with in letter and spirit. The Court was hearing the suo moto case dealing with the conditions of Quarantine centers in the state, and other Covid related issues. The above remarks were made in the backdrop of the reply filed by District Magistrate and S.S.P., Prayagraj, pursuant to an explanation sought by the High Court on the contempt applications filed by Advocates Ram Kaushik and Priyanka Midda, on Monday. The Court has decided to keep the contempt applications pending, in case the assurances given by the authorities do not fructify. Removal of unauthorized shops/ encroachments where people often gather During the course of hearing on August 5, the High Court had pulled up the Nagar Nigam Administration in Prayagraj for being a “passive spectator” of the encroachment activities, where people often gathered in complete disregard of social distancing norms, leading to risk of spread of infection. Social Distancing Seems To Be An ‘Empty Shibboleth’; Treatment System At Government Hospitals Has ‘Collapsed’: Allahabad HC Raps UP Govt On a perusal of all the records and materials on Tuesday, the bench reiterated its dissatisfaction at the “half hearted” steps taken by the Nagar Nigam for removal of encroachments. Accordingly, it has appointed two Advocate Commissioners who would inspect such places which the Nagar Nigam has submitted to have been made encroachment free. They have been asked to submit a joint report on the following points: Whether the Nagar Nigam had actually carried out its extensive exercise of freeing public land from encroachments as per their claims;Whether these places remained vacant after the encroachment was removed and no further encroachment took place;Proper sanitization and sprinkling of DDT powder, fogging etc. was regularly being done in every nook and corner of the city on a regular basis, routinely;Whether the Nagar Nigam has made arrangements of creating sufficient vending zones to ensure that unauthorized people whose shops are removed do get a place for continuing their business in the regular vending zones;Whether the Nagar Nigam has placed sufficient dustbins for the disposal of used gloves and masks by the residents of the city. Deployment of adequate Medical Staff at Hospitals, Nagar Nigam Inter alia, the Court was informed regarding the inadequate number of Doctors/ Nurses deployed at Hospitals, especially in ICU Wards. The Court was also apprised of an incident where a patient died on her way to the toilet and even after she fell down, there was no Nurse or Doctor available to attend her. In this backdrop the Court has ordered, There should be not less than 3 Nurses and a Doctor on every 15 patients in isolation wards, at level-3 hospitals. The Doctor patient ratio for the ICU wards should be even better. Complete information be provided as to when Doctors were being called and also as to whether they actually reported for duty. Details with regard to Doctors with specializations who came when they were called be also provided. Inform us about the inflow of funds to the level-3 hospital dealing with the Covid-19 patients. Inform us as to in what manner Doctors and Nurses attend to patients when there is an emergency at night. Incident of the patient who died on her way to toilet be investigated at the highest level and a report be submitted. “We expect that the Hospital Administration and the Government will ensure that more medical force is deployed to meet the requirement,” the Court said. The Court has also asked the State Government to submit a report as to why no Health Department is functioning in the Nagar Nigam. “Doctors in the Health Department are very essential because, whenever there is a pandemic of the kind we are having, the Doctor in the Nagar Nigam alone can assess the magnitude of the problem. The Doctor of the Nagar Nigam also sees to the standard of cleanliness of the city,” the Court said while posting the matter for hearing on August 25, 2020.

It takes both, working together, to keep Alabama growing.”Sauer said the Farm-City Committee is one of the strongest Chamber committees.“The committee is made up of 20 members who represents all segments of the community,” she said. “This longstanding committee has won numerous statewide awards for its innovative ideas and outstanding promotion of agriculture and the farm-city partnership.“Among the Committee’s past awards is the Farm-City of the Year in its classification.

Erratic economies pose expat posting problems

first_img Comments are closed. Erratic economies pose expat posting problemsOn 4 Jul 2000 in Personnel Today Economic volatility has continued to provide headaches for international HR managers, the latest cost of living survey by William M Mercer shows.Expatriate postings in eastern Asia have rapidly become more costly with the recovery of the region from the economic downturn in 1997-98. The region dominates the upper end of the index, with Tokyo, Osaka and Hong Kong taking the top three places. “Asia’s cities may be affordable to the indigenous population, but expatriates pay a premium for imported products,” said Mercer researcher Rehan Mustafa.Mark Childs, director of global compensation and benefits for Fidelity Investments, said HR managers must explain risks fully in advance of an assignment. Failing to do this can mean the employee expects an automatic increase when a city becomes more expensive due to currency changes.“If you provide choice about the currency in which they receive payments then you tend to cut the number of grievances,” said Childs. The strong pound has put London at the top of the league table of pricey cities for Europe. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Oxford courts Indian economic boom

first_imgVice-Chancellor John Hood has announced an educational collaboration between India and Britain, to be centred at Oxford’s Saïd Business School.The Saïd Business School is one of Europe’s  youngest business schools. It tops the rankings for UK universities in undergraduate Business Studies.The Oxford University India Business Centre  (OUIBC) will address major business issues through joint research between academics in Oxford, India and elsewhere.Alongside  research and teaching at Oxford, the centre will develop a range of educational projects to be transmitted through a new facility in Lavasa, near Pune.According to Lavasa Corporation Ltd., the facility is due to deliver education programmes in early 2010.In announcing the initiative, Dr Hood said, “The primary objective of this research centre is to learn from India’s business  success.  A clear understanding of the issues faced by India, and their innovative solutions, as India transitions from poverty to prosperity, will form a guide to future generations of countries attempting similar transitions.”India’s economy is growing by nine per cent per annum,  a rate only surpassed by China according to recent reports. Hood acknowledged, “Business developments like the Tata Steel-Corus and Vodafone Hutch are very impressive.“Tata Motors’ new car Nano is a wonderful innovation not just for India but also for the whole world.”Recognising that some 260 Indian students are currently at Oxford, he continued,  “The spectacular economic growth and new generation’s inclination towards innovation and success are things to be analysed, recorded and taught in classrooms.”Kaushal Vidyarthee, a graduate student at Wolfson, thinks the initiative is a step in the right direction. “India is surely going to benefit from this and I am very proud of the fact that the Oxford University has been so proactive; it will surely strengthen the ties between the UK and India.” Prior to his matriculation here, Vidyarthee completed his BA in Urban Planning at the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi.Professor Colin Mayer, Dean of the Saïd Business School, spoke at  the conference in New Delhi. “The purpose of the centre is to address major business policy questions in India…and to engage practitioners and policymakers in formulating a research agenda that will be relevant and significant.”Also speaking at the conference, Mr Ajit Gulabchand of Lavasa Corporations Ltd.  said, “It is a matter of great pride for Lavasa to be partnered with the most respected educational institution in the world. This will open new paradigms of educational and managerial excellence for students in both countries.”The OUIBC is the latest initiative in an £825m investment in the development funding of India for the next three years.Currently in  New Delhi as part of the Prime Minister’s delegation, Hood is a firm supporter of international academic links. He recognises the historic association of India and Britain, which share “a lot of valuable manuscripts” and “collections of art and artefacts.”The first Indian students came to Oxford in 1871 and just 12 years later, the University founded the Indian Institute. Mr Gulabchand and Dr Hood will sign the official memorandum of agreement  at the World Economic Forum at Davos on 25 January.Research leader and Professor of World Literature in English, Elleke Boehmer, said: “The aspects of multiculturalism that attract such interest today – from innovative literature to fear of terrorism – were with us a century ago.”by Omotola Akerelelast_img read more

Conference in El Salvador Discusses Narco-Terrorism and Violence in Mesoamerica

first_imgBy Dialogo July 30, 2010 I think some of the participant’s ideas are excellent, but I think an effort should be made to control all manner of communication in correctional facilities in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras as illicit orders are being given from these correctional facilities. (We have to invest in technology and not give the gangs a break) “More than 90 percent of the crimes committed in El Salvador are the work of gang members. Today, in order to be a member of one of these criminal groups, it’s necessary to commit at least one homicide, and in some cases, up to six.” These were a few of the statements made by the country’s defense minister, Gen. David Munguía Payés, during his speech to open the Sixth Sub-Regional Conference for Mesoamerica, held between 20 and 23 July in San Salvador and organized by the Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies (CHDS). The conference addressed topics related to current challenges in the Mesoamerican region (Central America, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico), primarily violence and drug trafficking, and was divided into plenary and simultaneous sessions, with the presentation of academic papers on subjects such as the analysis of the underlying causes and effects of the insecurity, criminality, and violence in the region, as well as their impact on regional societies. “The fundamental idea was to design three days of intensive academic work so that the participants from North America, Central America, and South America, actors and experts on security and defense issues in Mesoamerica, could interact on the basis of the thematic axes, which were selected in accordance with current trends in the region,” said Richard Downie, CHDS director. Among the suggestions made during the conference for confronting the region’s problems, such as transnational security, terrorism, drug trafficking, and arms smuggling, two of those that had the most impact on participants were those made by Camilo Alfonso Ospina Bernal, former legal advisor to the office of the president and former minister of national defense of Colombia. During his address, Ospina Bernal suggested that “when a highly influential criminal — especially one with connections to gangs or organized crime — is arrested, he should be transfered to a jail in another country. This would cut off his ties in his homeland, lower his morale, and impede him from communicating with and passing instructions to his subordinates, and it would be the perfect form of transregional and transnational interaction.” In relation to the fight against drug trafficking, Ospina Bernal also presented a proposal that, in his view, would be very effective. “When someone is arrested and has assets that far surpass his financial possibilities, there needs to be an investigation to see where the money to acquire those assets came from. If he can’t prove the source, these assets should become state property. This would break with what the drug traffickers like best: ostentatiously spending their illicit money.” The Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies annually organizes thematic sub-regional conferences in order to improve the networks of contact and exchange between CHDS graduates and regional leaders. The CHDS was created during the Hemispheric Conference on Defense Education for Civilians in September 1997. The next sub-regional conference will be held in South America in 2011, according to CHDS administrators.last_img read more

Grey: Lawyers have a responsibility to lead

first_img Grey: Lawyers have a responsibility to lead Mark D. Killian Managing Editor Lawyers who are active in their state and local bar associations are on the front lines when it comes to defending the judiciary.“If you don’t stand up, then people in our country will never appreciate or understand the value that our justice system has to the development and evolution of our democracy,” ABA President Robert J. Grey, Jr., imparted to those attending a joint luncheon sponsored by the Equal Opportunities Law Section, the Virgil Hawkins Florida Chapter of the National Bar Association, and the Florida Association for Women Lawyers at the Bar’s Annual Meeting in Orlando.The gathering of the three diverse bar groups did not go unnoticed as Grey reminded attendees that only 40 years ago – the anniversary of the passage of the Voting Rights Act – “we would not have been sitting together in this room.”“But we are because of lawyers, because of judges. . . because of a Supreme Court that had the courage to not make a popular decision but to make a correct decision,” Grey said, adding America must appreciate its diversity in order to achieve its highest potential.“We [lawyers] want respect throughout the world and the respect of our citizens,” Grey said. “Respect comes when you recognize and appreciate contributions of all Americans. Respect comes when you open the door to opportunity to all of those who participate in our society. Respect comes when you are willing to stand up for what is right, even at personal risk.”There is a difference between judicial accountability and judicial independence, he said.“To those who say our judges are not accountable, they are very much accountable, maybe not to politicians, but to the American public,” Grey said. “That is the beauty of judicial independence.”Grey said lawyers are not engaged in a popularity contest when they practice and serve on the bench, but are the referees of society ready to make the call that is going to make someone unhappy.“But that is what we do for a living and for society and we do it with dignity and grace and the highest degree of ethics we are capable of mustering among ourselves,” Grey said.Grey said the American system of justice is still the envy of the world and when he travels internationally “people tell me again and again that they admire America’s lawyers and judges because they have stood for decency, for individual rights. They have stood for people having opportunity to achieve their highest potential.”He asked the attendees to examine daily what they do, because their actions are a beacon of hope to emerging democracies around the world.“The idea is not to export American justice; the idea is to set the example so they might — based on their culture — develop a system that will be fair and balanced and free of corruption,” Grey said. “That is what they are trying to achive.”Lawyers, he said, have a responsibility to lead the nation and their communities.“We are what we are and should accept and be grateful that we are here in this country,” Grey said. “This country is not only great because of its wealth. . . it is not only great because of its military strength. . . this country is great because of its justice system and its ability to do what is right for those who are being governed and it will not waiver as long as you and I are at the helm.” Grey: Lawyers have a responsibility to lead July 15, 2005 Managing Editor Regular Newslast_img read more

Norway’s sovereign fund ‘should stay invested in energy stocks’

first_imgIt was appointed following advice from the fund’s manager Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM) that Norway’s state assets would be less vulnerable to a permanent reduction in oil and gas prices if the GPFG were not invested in energy stocks.Energy stocks currently amount to some 4% of the total value of the fund, or about NOK315bn at the end of 2017, according to the finance ministry.Siv Jensen, Norway’s minister of finance, said: “Together with the advice from Norges Bank and the public consultation of the bank’s advice, this report will constitute a solid foundation for decision-making. The government aims to conclude on this matter later this fall.”Although the commission agreed with Norges Bank that the value of energy stocks was linked to the oil price – especially in the short term – it had been asked to take a number of other considerations into account.One of these was the need for an insurance against a permanent decline in the value of Norway’s oil and gas resources, the ministry said.Divestment dismissedHowever, the commission contended that divestment of the fund’s energy stocks was not an effective insurance against lower oil revenues in the future.In a scenario with sustained lower oil prices, the loss in the government’s net cash flow from petroleum activities would be substantial, the experts said, but pointed out that only around 1% of such a loss would be covered if the GPFG were not invested in energy stocks.“The estimate is uncertain, but the contribution will in any event be insubstantial,” the commission said.Selling off its energy stocks would challenge the current investment strategy of the fund, with broad diversification of the investments and a high threshold for exclusion, it added.The expert group also said the need to insure Norway’s wealth against a permanent reduction in the oil price was historically low.Instead, it suggested reducing the Norwegian state’s equity stake in directly-held energy companies such as Equinor, in which the energy ministry held a 67% stake in 2014, according to its latest available report. Norway’s government also owns oil and gas companies including Gassnova, Gassco and Petoro.If the state wanted to reduce the climate risk in the GPFG, the experts suggested doing more work on individual companies with the largest exposure to climate risk.Equity strategy shiftSeparately, NBIM has written to the finance ministry recommending that the process of benchmark index rebalancing should happen more gradually.It argued that the logistics of switching holdings had changed over the years now that the fund had grown so large. Since 2013, the fund has grown by two thirds from NOK5trn to NOK8.3trn as of 30 June.“The equity share in the benchmark index should be adjusted back to the target level more gradually than at present,” Norges Bank said. “The width of the no-trade band within which the equity share may move without triggering rebalancing should be narrower than today, and could be set at +/- 2 percentage points.”As of 30 June, the fund had NOK5.6trn, or 66.8% of its portfolio, invested in listed equities. Since last year the fund’s benchmark allocation targeted a 70% weighting to listed equities. Norway’s NOK8.7trn (€890bn) sovereign wealth fund should remain invested in energy stocks, a government-tasked expert commission has concluded, even though the managers of the fund believe the shares should be sold off.Øystein Thøgersen, chair of a commission created in February by Norway’s finance ministry, said: “Divestment of the energy stocks in the Government Pension Fund Global [GPFG] is not an effective insurance against a permanent decline in oil prices.“The energy stocks only contribute marginally to Norway’s oil price risk.”The commission had been asked to assess whether the GPFG should continue to invest in stocks listed in the energy sector as classified by FTSE Russell.last_img read more

Labour calls for ban on alcohol advertising

first_imgTVNZ News 12 July 2012 Labour is continuing to take a hard line on alcohol reform by proposing greater restrictions on advertising. The opposition party has been drumming up support in Parliament in recent weeks for legislation to set a minimum price for a drink. Labour’s latest call is for alcohol prices to be banned from television and radio advertising in the Alcohol Reform Bill, which is soon to be debated in Parliament. “Because we know that it’s the shifting of huge quantities that cause a lot of the problems we have,” Labour’s associate health spokesperson Iain Lees-Galloway said. “It’s a lot more than chest beating, it’s about trying to get results.” The Government said the bill already prohibits advertising alcohol discounted by 25% or more. “The changes that are recommended in the legislation are based on research and i think they are well founded,” Prime Minister John Key said. To get the ban into the bill, Labour needs the support of the opposition parties and the Maori Party.http://tvnz.co.nz/politics-news/labour-calls-ban-alcohol-advertising-4967073last_img read more

Naughton: I want regular football

first_img The former England Under-21 defender completed his move from north London to south Wales on Thursday evening for a fee understood to be £5million. Naughton has penned a three-and-a-half year contract at the Liberty Stadium and could make his debut in Swansea’s FA Cup fourth round tie at Blackburn on Saturday. “I’m pleased it’s all done because there has been talk since the summer over a potential move,” Naughton told the official Swansea website. “My main aim is to start playing regular football again. I know it’s going to be a tough challenge because there are some very good players here, but that’s my goal. “I’ve had quite a few loan moves over my career, but I actually played 34 games last season for Spurs, which is a fair amount. “The main problem for me, however, was that I was still in and out of the team. That’s difficult at times. “I’m sad to be leaving Spurs because it’s a great club. I was there quite a while and the lads are a great bunch. “But now I just want to settle into life at Swansea and try to play regularly. “It all comes down to playing football – after all, that’s my job.” The 26-year-old joined Tottenham in 2009 after playing 40 games for his hometown club Sheffield United but went out on loan at Middlesbrough, Leicester and Norwich in his search for first-team football. Kyle Naughton has revealed he left Tottenham for Swansea to play regular first-team football. Naughton, who can play either right-back or left-back, made 74 appearances for Spurs and said he spoke to former team-mates and Swansea old boys Michel Vorm and Ben Davies about his new club. “Ben had obviously been at the club the longest and he said it was a great place to play your football,” said Naughton, who trained with the Swansea squad on Thursday morning before the formalities of his deal was completed. “He said it was a good club with a family-feel to it. “To be honest, as soon as I walked into the training ground I could see that for myself straight away.” Naughton becomes Swansea manager Garry Monk’s third signing of the January transfer window following the arrival of Benfica striker loanee Nelson Oliveira and midfielder Matt Grimes from Exeter. “Kyle’s experienced at this level and brings Premier League pedigree,” Monk said. “He’s a good age for us and we look for players who want to prove a point and are hungry to do well. “Kyle enjoyed his time at Tottenham but he didn’t have the amount of games he wanted. “But he will add quality with the other full-backs we’ve got and I’m looking for Kyle to push on and stake a claim for the starting XI.” Monk, meanwhile, said Bafetimbi Gomis remains committed to Swansea despite the French striker’s comments last weekend that he could leave the club in January. Gomis raised fresh doubts over his future when he gave an interview to French television station Canal Plus, the 12-times capped France international claiming Swansea had reneged on promises made to him about the game-time he would receive after joining from Lyon last summer. But Monk said: “I’m confident Bafe will stay here. “I’ve seen his comments and I’ve spoken to Bafe but it’s nothing new, it’s the way it is in football now. “Go back a few years and you wouldn’t see these sort of comments. But the conversation with me and Bafe stays between me and Bafe. “I understand from a player’s perspective as well how he’s been frustrated. He’s not a young player who’s up and coming, he has pedigree as he’s a top performer who’s performed his whole career. “He’s on the training ground with a smile on his face. He is very professional, gets on with his job and works hard. “He’s a pleasure to be with around the group as well and a pleasure to work with every single day.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Scott Sinclair double in vain for Aston Villa

first_img Dick Advocaat’s team led through Yann M’Vila’s superb free-kick but a Scott Sinclair double before half-time turned the game on its head. However, Villa could not hold on to the lead either and Jeremain Lens levelled for Sunderland early in the second half. Sherwood’s side pushed for a winning goal and had a couple of penalty shouts turned down but it ended all square. Sunderland went ahead after eight minutes through M’Vila’s free-kick. His lovely curling shot around the Villa wall left Brad Guzan, diving at full stretch, with no chance. But the lead lasted just three minutes. Lee Cattermole clumsily leant over the top of Sinclair and referee Robert Madley pointed to the penalty spot. Sinclair took the spot-kick himself and tucked the ball away into the left-hand side of the net, sending Costel Pantilimon the wrong way. Villa were now in the ascendancy and Sinclair went close again before Ashley Westwood’s first-time shot from the right side of the area flew just wide. Carlos Sanchez perhaps should have done better than guide his far-post shot over the crossbar when Leandro Bacuna’s cross from the left evaded everyone in the box and fell at the feet of the Colombia international. Press Association Rudy Gestede, a handful for the Sunderland defenders throughout, then showed good strength with his back to goal to turn Billy Jones and get a shot away which Pantilimon held. Villa made their pressure pay four minutes before half-time when Idrissa Gueye set Jordan Amavi free down the left and Sinclair got between two defenders inside the six-yard box to divert his low cross into the roof of the net. Whatever Advocaat said to his players at the break it got that late first-half disappointment out of their systems – although two substitutions played a big part. The Dutchman replaced Danny Graham and Cattermole with Steven Fletcher and Ola Toivonen, on for his debut following his loan arrival this week from French club Rennes. Fletcher was involved straight away as Sunderland started the second half brightly, with his header having to be tipped over the crossbar by Guzan. Shortly afterwards, Toivonen joined the party. His threaded through ball found Lens, who turned Ciaran Clark and fired his shot beyond Guzan. Sinclair somehow squandered the chance of a second hat-trick in four days as he got on the end of Gueye’s driven cross but the ball struck his body just a couple of yards from goal and ricocheted into the grateful hands of Pantilimon. Villa thought they had a penalty 10 minutes from time when substitute Carles Gil went down under a challenge from Younes Kaboul but the referee booked the Villa man for simulation. Pantilimon produced a good save to deny Ashley Westwood and then kept out a Gestede header as the hosts searched for a winner but Sunderland held on to their point. TWEET OF THE MATCH “Sunderland in lime green – awful.” – Football presenter Richard Keys was unimpressed with Sunderland’s away kit. https://twitter.com/richardajkeys/status/637627451510689792 – @richardajkeys PLAYER RATINGS Villa Brad Guzan 5 Micah Richards 6 Ciaran Clark 5 Leandro Bacuna 5 Idrissa Gana 6 Scott Sinclair 7 Ashley Westwood 6 Alan Hutton 5 Jordan Amavi 6 Carlos Sanchez 6 Rudy Gestede 6 Subs Carles Gil 5 Sunderland Costel Pantilimon 8 Billy Jones 5 Patrick van Aanholt Lee Catermole 3 Jack Rodwell 5 Younes Kaboul 5 John O’Shea 5 Jeremain Lens 6 Jermain Defo e 6 Danny Graham 4 Yann M’Vila 6 Subs Ola Toivonen 6 Seb Larsson 5 Steven Fletcher 6 STAR PLAYER Pantilimon – did not really have much chance with either goal he conceded but made some important saves to ensure his side escaped with a point. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Villa’s second goal was Sherwood’s side at their fluent best – a lovely move rounded off with a sliding finish from Sinclair. VIEW FROM BENCH Sherwood found it hard to hide his frustration when referee Robert Madley not only failed to give his side a penalty but booked Gil for diving. He shaped to kick a clutch of water bottles on the touchline but refrained from doing so. MOAN OF THE MATCH Sunderland employed a few time-wasting tactics late in the game, which is always frustrating to see. WHO’S UP NEXT? Leicester v Aston Villa (Premier League, Sunday 13 September) Sunderland v Tottenham (Premier League, Sunday 13 September) Tim Sherwood said this week it was too early in the season for must-win games but he will be disappointed his Aston Villa side were held to a 2-2 draw at home by Sunderland. Neither team has shown too much so far to suggest significant improvement on last season’s struggles towards the bottom of the Barclays Premier league but on this showing Villa may just have enough as an attacking force to survive. Sunderland, on the other hand, perhaps not so. With their problems lying at the opposite end of the pitch, they will not keep many clean sheets this season. last_img read more

Tappin drops 44, MHS lift YBG’s Titan Bowl

first_img… Jada Mohan fails to take Marian Academy over President’s CollegeYANNICK Tappin, the Mackenzie High School (MHS) point guard, was a ‘man amongst boys’, as he poured in a tournament-high 44 points, to lead his team to a 91-76 points victory over the Linden Technical Institute (LTI).As a result his team won this year’s Youth Basketball Guyana (YBG) Titan Bowl, which wrapped up on Sunday at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.In the Girls’ final, despite a game-high 19 points by basketball protégé Jada Mohan, Marian Academy lost 23-24 to President’s College (PC) in an entertaining encounter.Meanwhile, Tappin, after showing off his skills and the reason he’s probably one of the top High School ‘ballers’ in Guyana, the eventual Most Valuable Player (MVP) awardee saved his best performance for last, unleashing an all-round performance unlike any other in the tournament this year.Tournament MVP Yannick Tappin goes hard to basket during his sensational 44-point performance in the final of the YBG Titan Bowl against LTI.He dished out six assists, picking up eight steals and grabbing six rebounds to go along with his 44 points.The Linden Technical Institute had no answer for Tappin, who was supported by Kevlon Cadogan (14 points, seven rebounds) and Leon Benjamin (13 points, 11 rebounds).Jamal Gilkes had a huge game on both ends of the floor for LTI, scoring 18 points and hauling in 15 rebounds. He had the support of Dillon Pellew (14 points, 10 rebounds) and George Yearwood (13 points).In the female final, Mohan, known as the best female player in Guyana, did all she could but her great performance was not good enough to stop Marian Academy from falling to President’s College (23-24).Mohan, along with her 19 points, had six steals and seven rebounds, but it was PC’s Roschelle Campbell’s six points, 15 rebounds and three steals that made the difference.Annalisa Barclay also turned in a good performance for ‘PC’ netting seven points, and grabbing five rebounds.This year’s ‘Titan Bowl’ was the seventh edition of the YBG showpiece, which marks the end of their school’s basketball season.last_img read more

Clay carries Badgers to win in O.T.

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoJohn Clay was frustrated after he lost a fumble in the first quarter Saturday. He did a good job making up for it.After a 27-yard run on Wisconsin’s game-tying drive, Clay took three straight carries in overtime, the last of which scored the touchdown that allowed Philip Welch to kick the game-winning extra point.“They gave me the nod to finish the game off, and that’s what I did,” Clay said.“They just kept feeding me the rock and they knew I was going to get positive yards.”Clay was put in the game to start the overtime after P.J. Hill suffered an injury on his two-point conversion in the fourth quarter.“I woulda went in,” Hill said, “but I didn’t want to put my team in a tough situation.”With Clay in the game, the Badgers kept the ball on the ground.“What we wanted to do was play basic power football,” Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema said, “and John, for those runs, was probably a better option at that time for us.”In the first quarter, Clay had a lost a fumble on the Badgers’ opening possession that led to a Mustang score.“I had to make up for that fumble,” Clay said, “so every opportunity I got a made a positive out of it.”“They told me they was going to need me, so I just stepped up and did my job.”Despite the injury, Hill was fine watching Clay finish off the game.“He was able to make plays when it was time to make plays,” Hill said. “It was a real crucial situation, and he made something out of it.”Clay finished the game with 107 yards and two touchdowns while Hill finished with 61 yards and a pair of scores. Toon scores first touchdownIt may have been unconventional, but Badger wide receiver Nick Toon scored his first career touchdown late in the first half.Toon had a ball thrown his way at the Mustang goal line, but the ball was knocked high in the air after two Cal Poly defenders converged on him. The freshman stayed with the ball and caught it on the rebound in the end zone.“It wasn’t the prettiest thing, but it feels good to get the first one, and hopefully there are many more to come,” Toon said. “I think it hit the defensive backs helmet — I tried to jump up and grab it and it bounced in the air and I tried to concentrate on it and come down on it.”Bielema was impressed with the play.“Tremendous concentration by Nick Toon to close out the half there when the ball got deflected and he stayed with it and ended up with a touchdown,” Bielema said.Toon finished the game with two receptions for 40 yards and the touchdown. He did miss on a fourth-down catch in the fourth quarter that gave Cal Poly the ball in good field position.“I should’ve had it — it was kind of a weird ball,” Toon said. “I should’ve caught it.” Bowl location still up in the airWith the win, the Badgers are now 7-5 on the season, but the team isn’t sure yet which bowl game it will end up receiving an invitation from to close out the season.Bielema said he didn’t yet have information on where the team would be heading.“I told the guys in the locker room, ‘All I know is we won the football game, and that’s definitely not going to hurt us,’” he said.last_img read more

Meeting between Rob Manfred, Tony Clark yields new hope for 2020 MLB season

first_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield The contentious relationship between Major League Baseball owners and players has apparently healed to the point that there is renewed hope the sides can agree on a course for a 2020 season.Commissioner Rob Manfred and Tony Clark, head of the Players’ Assn., met for several hours on Tuesday in Phoenix, and Manfred issued a statement on Wednesday characterizing the talks as productive.“We left that meeting with a jointly developed framework that we agreed could form the basis of an agreement and subject to conversations with our respective constituents,” Manfred said. “I summarized that framework numerous times in the meeting and sent Tony a written summary today. Consistent with our conversations yesterday, I am encouraging the Clubs to move forward and I trust Tony is doing the same.”The offer is for a 60-game season, starting July 19, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney. Players would receive their full pro-rated salaries — which would be about 37 percent of their full-season salary — and there would be expanded playoffs in 2020 and 2021, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. It is possible MLB would have to increase the number of games in their offer to get the players to agree.MLB’s latest proposal also includes implementing the DH in both leagues in 2020 and 2021, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.The news came just two days after Manfred said on ESPN that he was losing confidence in reaching an agreement with the players over the terms of the sport’s return amid the coronavirus pandemic.Compensation was the heart of the issue, with players insisting on receiving their full pro-rated salaries, while owners sought further pay cuts in light of the likelihood of playing games in empty stadiums.On Monday, Manfred said the players had been negotiating in “bad faith” and Clark responded that the players were “disgusted” by Manfred backtracking on his promise from last week that he was “100 percent” certain there would be a season. The two reportedly had a face-to-face meeting in Arizona on Tuesday to help bridge the gap.According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the two sides were “closing in” on an agreement on Wednesday morning. Evan Drellich of The Athletic reported that a new proposal had just been sent from owners, and that there is “no agreement even in principle at this point.”Players would like to receive their full pro-rated salaries for as many games as possible. Players are already losing at least half of their full salaries because the pandemic has already wiped out at least half of the scheduled 162 games.Owners have offered reduced salaries or a shortened schedule of as little as 48 games. Owners could unilaterally impose a schedule, but they would be subject to a grievance from players that they did not make their “best efforts” to schedule as many games as possible.The bridge may have been an expansion of the playoffs. Adding an extra round of postseason play could add significant revenue from television, helping compensate for the lack of fans. The players need to approve any change to the playoff format.Even if the financial and logistical terms are agreed upon, there is still the looming threat of the coronavirus. The virus is still spreading quickly in many states, including California, Arizona, Texas and Florida, states that are home to 10 of the 30 major league teams.Related Articles Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros last_img read more

Phillies broadcaster blasts Dodgers rookie Joc Pederson as ‘very selfish’

first_imgPHILADELPHIA >> Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson said he didn’t know who Larry Andersen is until a reporter told him Thursday.Andersen, a retired pitcher and the Philadelphia Phillies’ radio color commentator, seems to believe he has a pretty good knowledge of Pederson.Andersen ripped Pederson for being “selfish” during the fourth inning of the Phillies’ broadcast of Wednesday’s game against the Dodgers.“To me it’s just a young, selfish, very selfish player when you come out there, ‘I’m just trying to hit home runs, all I want to do is hit home runs’,” Andersen said. “What about — obviously there’s two outs, it’s not the same — what about if it’s first and third, infield back, all you gotta do is hit a ball on the ground and you’re going to go up there, try to hit home runs?” If Pederson is trying to hit home runs, he’s failing miserably. After belting 20 home runs in his first 77 games this season, Pederson only has one home run in his last 28 games. That could be a by-product of Pederson’s attempt to shorten his swing path.Thursday, Pederson snapped an 0-for-23 streak with a single in the seventh inning. He collected six walks, a single and struck out twice in the three-game series.More CrawfordDodgers manager Don Mattingly said he’ll try to play Carl Crawford “at least once a series,” while giving either right fielder Yasiel Puig or left fielder Andre Ethier a day off.Puig wasn’t in the starting lineup for Thursday’s series finale against the Phillies, while Ethier moved to right field and Crawford started in left. Crawford went 1 for 4 with a two-run single in the first inning.“He’s really in Andre’s boat from last year, where Carl got hot and took off,” Mattingly said. “This year Andre’s been that guy who’s been our most consistent offensive outfielder. Carl, it’s not his fault he got hurt, but he did. Andre got an opportunity and took off.”Crawford missed 75 games earlier this season with a strained oblique muscle. His body might have less wear and tear at this point in the season than Puig or Ethier, but his timing at the plate is admittedly lacking.For someone who got used to starting during his first 13 years in the league, that’s an inevitable consequence of decreased playing time. Crawford has started four of the Dodgers’ 14 games since he returned from the disabled list.“It is easier said than done, but you’ve gotta do it,” he said. “It’s good that you want to be out there, and I think they like that. At the same time you’ve got to just play your part. We all have to do that right now. The team is playing extremely well right now. The last thing you want to do is become a problem. That’s just the situation.”AlsoDodgers reliever Joel Peralta left Thursday’s game after facing only three batters when Odubel Herrera spiked the top of his left foot while the pitcher was covering first base. Peralta said he was not seriously hurt on the play and Mattingly said he planned to pull Peralta after Herrera’s single anyway. … Triple-A pitcher Carlos Frias was scheduled to undergo further tests on his back one day after the injury limited his last start to only 10 pitches. … The scheduled starters for the next three games against the Pirates: Clayton Kershaw will face right-hander Gerrit Cole on Friday, Mat Latos will face left-hander Francisco Liriano on Saturday, and Alex Wood will face right-hander Charlie Morton on Sunday. … The games Friday and Sunday night will be nationally telecast on ESPN. Friday’s game will be blacked out in SportsNet LA markets, while Sunday’s game will not. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Earlier, when Pederson batted in the first inning, Andersen repeated the quote on the air.“It looks like this guy’s just got one thing on his mind, and that’s either walking or hitting a home run,” Andersen said. “There’s no ‘try and get a base hit here.’ He came out and said it, ‘I’m trying to hit home runs.’ It’s not the smartest thing to come out and say.”One problem with this quote: Pederson claims he never said it.“I think I said the exact opposite” Wednesday, he said.Pederson and a Dodgers spokesperson both said the rookie wasn’t approached for an interview by anyone on the Phillies’ broadcast team during the three-game series.last_img read more

South West pair end senior season with a hat trick

first_img4 Oct 2017 South West pair end senior season with a hat trick Tags: Brenda King Foursomes, competitions, Senior The South West pair of Jo Shorrocks and Amanda Mayne have completed a hat trick of consecutive wins in England Golf’s end-of-season senior tournament.They won the popular Brenda King Foursomes by seven shots at Harrogate Golf Club, Yorkshire, where they scored two-over 74 and 79, with the second round played in continuous rain.“We’re so pleased to win for the third time,” said Mayne, a former England senior international from Saltford, Somerset.They’ve equalled the record of their good friends, Claire Dowling and Tracy Atkin, who won from 2012-14. “We’ll give them a bit of banter,” said Shorrocks, from Bigbury, Devon.Their continued success seems to be helping to raise the profile of senior women’s golf in the South-West, reports Shorrocks. Devon has introduced a senior women’s championship this year and another pair, from Royal North Devon, also made the long trip north for the Brenda King tournament.Shorrocks and Mayne made their trademark slow start to the event and were three over par after playing two holes of the first round. But they came straight back with two birdies and after returning 74 they were five shots clear of the field.“Today conditions were pretty dreadful, it tipped down all day, and we just wanted to keep as steady as possible and hope no-one else would play a blinder,” said Shorrocks.Second place, on countback, went to Janet Melville (Royal Birkdale, Lancashire) and Jo Ashmore (Barnham Broom, Norfolk), who have both represented England at senior level. Third were Kate Evans (Frilford Heath, Oxfordshire) and Sandy Catford (Prince’s, Kent).last_img read more

The inconspicuously obvious

first_imgDear Editor,The recent (2018/11/13) ruling of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) pertaining to the issue of cross dressing in Guyana is indicative of the trajectory of homosexuality in this nation. The masquerade has to stop! The inconspicuously obvious is hiding in plain sight!SASOD and many sister organisations are riding the wave of human rights as they forward their advocacy against discrimination based on one’s sexual orientation. The not so obvious glaring fact, is that they are not dealing with sexual orientation in its widest sense- these folks and their supporters are, in essence, agitating for the legitimisation of same sex relationships; period! Consider the following:The laws of any society are intended to protect the citizenry. During SASOD’s press conference to inform the nation of the relevant CCJ ruling, a most prominent local senior counsel alluded to the archaic nature of sections of the constitution which pertain to cross dressing and homosexuality. What this learned individual and many in the legal fraternity is failing to address, is how these “antiquated” laws ended up on the books. I began this paragraph, by highlighting the fundamental utility of the law.So, if homosexuality is not serendipitously prohibited by the constitution, why is there an overwhelming effort to have it removed, while nothing is said about repealing the articles relating to incest, bestiality and other deviant sexual behaviour which are injurious to society? The answer is obvious. SASOD and their attorneys are quite aware of the grave potential societal dangers of incest, bestiality, homosexuality (particularly man to man) and other deviant sexual orientations. Hence, this facade about advocacy against discrimination based on one’s sexual orientation, is nothing but a smoke screen intended to hide the real agenda of SASOD–to promote and legitimise buggery. Had it not been so, there would have been equal and parallel attention given to the repealing of sections of the constitution which criminalise incest and bestiality. Aren’t these sexual orientations also?Sincerely,Errol London (Jr)last_img read more

DEMAND FOR MORE GARDAI AFTER DESPICABLE ATTACK ON ELDERLY COUPLE

first_imgPAT The Cope Gallagher has demanded more resources for Gardai after a raid on the home of an elderly couple.“I condemn outright the dastardly attack on James and Elsie Wilkie, Kilross. I have known the Wilkies for over 30 years and together with Cllr Patrick McGowan, I spent time with them over the weekend,” said Mr Gallagher.“While they were not injured, this was no credit to the intruders as they would have caused injuries had the Wilkies confronted these spineless people; however they were of course traumatised and will take some time to recover.” The MEP said: “The family were high in their praise of the Gardai, who responded quickly after the alert was raised, as did their friends and neighbours. I call on the Minister for Justice and Garda Authorities Nationally to immediately provide Donegal with additional resources and personnel to deal with the recent spate of robberies and attacks on our elderly.“The safety of our Senior Citizens is paramount and they should be allowed to enjoy their retirement in peace without fear of such attacks. I have been assured by the Garda Authorities in Donegal that every effort is being made to apprehend those responsible for this cowardly act. I appeal to those responsible to at least arrange to return the items of sentimental value that cannot be replaced.” DEMAND FOR MORE GARDAI AFTER DESPICABLE ATTACK ON ELDERLY COUPLE was last modified: July 15th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DEMAND FOR MORE GARDAI AFTER DESPICABLE ATTACK ON ELDERLY COUPLElast_img read more

Eateries robbed in takeovers

first_img Some local restaurants are taking extra precautions because of the robberies. At Woodland Hills’ Via Piacere, manager Lynne Dilmore has alerted her valet parking staff to watch for possible suspects, and she warned her staff not to wear expensive jewelry to work. “I don’t want any family heirlooms to be taken away,” Dilmore said. “It’s scary. It’s nerve-racking.” Moore said attentive witnesses will be the most important factor in apprehending the suspects. He urged potential witnesses to comply with the robbers while mentally gathering a good description of them. “We need help on two fronts,” Moore said. “First, we need people to be the best witness possible, making note of what happened before and during the robbery and giving us the information quickly and accurately. Second, if you have any information about the identity of the robbers, help us. “The chance of us interrupting one of these robberies is low. With our resources, the ability to have police officers at the right place at the right time is like capturing fireflies. We need the people’s help.” Josh Kleinbaum, (818) 713-3669 [email protected]! What to do if you’re a victim in a takeover-style robbery: -Comply with the robber’s instructions. -Look for distinctive attributes of the suspect – his clothes, his actions and his words. -Note in which direction the robber flees, and try to get a vehicle description or license plate number. -Call 911 immediately, wait for officers in front of the location, and be prepared to give information quickly and accurately.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Robert Green. “It’ll just be a matter of time.” But Moore said that using ski masks for robberies is a growing trend to thwart identification ski masks have been used in robberies 145 times in the Valley between Jan. 1 and July 31 and the robberies are not necessarily connected. Masked gunmen hit two San Fernando Valley restaurants, and police were working Friday to determine whether they were linked to each other or to scores of other takeover-style robberies. Two armed suspects entered Alessio Restaurant in Northridge through the front door about 10:05 p.m. Thursday, then emptied the restaurant’s cash registers and stole money and jewelry from patrons, officials said. At 10:40 p.m., two armed suspects entered Darband Restaurant in Tarzana through the rear door, again stealing cash from the registers and money and jewelry from customers. But officials said they are not sure whether the robberies are connected. Witnesses described the masked suspects at Alessio as two white men, while Darband customers told police that one of the masked robbers was white and one black. last_img read more

The First National Green Code — or Communism?

first_imgWouldn’t green building fall under the category of the public’s general welfare? Isn’t the creation of yet another code the opposite of the original effort to consolidate the codes? On the other hand, I support the effort as the most expedient way for the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and ASHRAE to push the more progressive 2030 Carbon Neutral Goal ahead of the slower IRC/IBC code cycle. Now if we could just get local AHJs to adopt and enforce it… Do we really need a new code?Is it really appropriate to set “green construction” out as yet another “code,” when we already have the IECC (energy code) and IRC/IBC (building code)? The ICC body was assembled in 2000 to simplify and consolidate the three existing regional building codes. The scope was originally “life safety,” but already in the 2003 version, the purpose was enlarged to also include the public health and general welfare, through various attributes, including energy conservation. RELATED STORIES Are Energy Codes Working?New Air Sealing Requirements in the International Residential CodeAn Overview of the 2012 Energy CodeAre We Really Better Off With Building Codes? Communism, plain and simpleWhat caught my attention were the comments that some readers posted concerning this seeming imposition of building green: “This is communism, plain and simple. Our Freedom is history.” At least this gentleman enjoyed his freedom of speech.For the sake of discussion, let’s consider the impact of communism on the built environment. Communist Russia produced very poorly crafted buildings, which were almost immediately in disrepair and certainly not energy-efficient. Also, for the sake of discussion, let’s not forget that this code must still be voted in by the local AHJs, who are hired by the free citizens of the municipality or state. So the IGCC is definitely not communism.Based on this gentleman’s last name, he appears to be of German origin. Had his forefathers not emigrated, he could be living in one of the growing number of communities throughout Germany which have mandated very aggressive energy-efficiency standards. Indeed, many of the new requirements in the IGCC have long been enforced codes in much of Europe. For example, there is a requirement for the dew point to fall outside the building envelope, for a given climate and wall construction. Material toxicity is much further evolved and drives innovation in insulation, paints, mastics, and fabrics. After a few false starts, the International Code Council (the code writing body for the U.S.) finally prevailed with the new International Green Construction Code, to be available in Spring 2012. Already there is media spin about the wonderful leadership shown by the U.S. in setting the example by providing such a code. Hoorah for the U.S.! I think…It often baffles Europeans how it is possible to have a code which is not enforceable as a law until the governing code bodies, either statewide or by individual jurisdiction, vote that code into law. Of course this is after they made modifications in the codes to suit them. And… the local AHJ (authority having jurisdiction) is still lord of his or her own domain.center_img The U.S. has some catching up to doIn fact, our communist-averse commentator might notice that many of the greenest of “green” programs have not come from the U.S., but from overseas (for example, Passivhaus and the Carbon Trust). He might be surprised that the USGBC LEED’s highest ranking of Platinum would only score “very good” (second highest) on the BREEAM system used in the U.K., and that Life Cycle Analysis databases and software are much further developed in Europe and the old British Empire than in the U.S.And, for the sake of our previous discussion, all of these initiatives have been the result of individuals — people who have pushed their own building codes to a higher level of performance standard. Besides, his forefathers and other immigrants came to America because this was the land of opportunity, a land which was once known as being ahead of the curve, a land of people who embraced changed, who took risks. What has happened to this spirit?I mention all this not to degrade in any way the hard work of the AIA, ASHRAE and the ICC. In fact, I commiserate with the political realities they faced when trying to push forth this initiative that is truly a benefit to the public welfare. But this as a reminder that the U.S. has some catching up to do in this particular domain, and I urge us all to encourage our local AHJs to adopt this new Green Code.I count on the experience gained in building science since the 1970s and seasoned energy efficient builders to lead the way. For when 100% of the U.S. is actively engaged in trying to meet this green goal in both new construction and remodel, then we will have the grounds on which to stand to be proud of our leadership.

How RapidShare Plans To Avoid MegaUpload’s Fate

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… john paul titlow Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#copyright#filesharing#megaupload#piracy#rapidshare Related Posts center_img It’s not everyday an Internet company watches its traffic numbers plummet – and rejoices. But that is precisely the scenario that cloud storage service RapidShare finds itself in as it seeks to draw a clear distinction between its business model and that of the now-defunct Megaupload. Since the raid that saw Megaupload shut down and its founder arrested last last year, RadidShare and similar services have been taking measures to reduce piracy on their networks, in many cases limiting their functionality and potentially sacrificing the overall user experience. If it means avoiding the fate of Megaupload, even drastic changes are worth it to these companies.On November 27, RapidShare will start putting a tight cap on outbound downloads for its free users. Paid members will still have 30 gigabytes in outbound downloads per day, but everybody else will be capped at one gigabyte. This will apply to public downloads, whereas direct Dropbox-style sharing between users won’t be affected. The change is expected to further deter pirates from using RapidShare to distribute copyright material on a large scale.An Ongoing, Newly Urgent BattleThe download caps are just the latest in a list of anti-piracy moves the company has made, as Chief Legal Officer Daniel Raimer outlined in a presentation at the Future of Music Summit in Washington, D.C. earlier this week. Those earlier efforts include a three-strike policy for repeat infringers and Web-crawling technology that helps RapidShare find links to illegal content so it can take corrective measures with those accounts. “That’s really helpful to delete a lot of accounts in a short amount of time and to get rid of a lot of piracy that happens on a large scale,” Raimer told ReadWrite in an interview after his talk. “It’s kind of hard to identify guys who do piracy on a very low level, like some Norwegian kid who has a music blog with very low traffic. Sooner or later that guy is going to be detected.”Earlier this year, RapidShare published a document titled “Responsible Practices For Cloud Storage Services” (see below), which outlines an anti-piracy framework for cyberlockers like to use in dealing with DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown requests to remove allegedly pirated content and policing activity on their services.RapidShare Handicaps Itself To Save Its Own LifeIn the case of RapidShare, the association with piracy is difficult to shake. For years, links to RapidShare pages containing movies and albums have littered the Web. According to Google Trends, the second most closely related search term to “RapidShare” is “Megaupload.” Included on the list of top-ten related search terms are “rapidshare movies” and “rapidshare crack.” It’s this close association with piracy that RapidShare is hoping to change with its download caps, three-strike policy and Web-crawling technology. The company has already seen a substantial drop-off in traffic as a result of the company’s existing anti-piracy measures, Raimer said. Their goal is to make using RapidShare as unpalatable as possible for copyright infringers, and the initial response to its anti-infringement measures suggest that the strategy is working. The pirates are not happy. RapidShare isn’t the only company taking these kinds of precautions. In the aftermath of the Megaupload shutdown, FileSonic and FileServe stopped allowing users to download files uploaded by other users, and MediaFire went on a PR offensive in an attempt to draw a line between itself and Megaupload. This is an odd and risky position for a business to be in, deliberately handicapping its own product in a bid to shoo away some users while hoping to cling to enough members to avoid a detrimental drop in revenue.  RapidShare is trying to strike a very delicate balance. How effectively it’s able to do that depends, in part, on how much of the content on RapidShare infringes on copyrights, and how much does not. That’s a difficult thing to measure, but no doubt the company’s crawlers and other anti-piracy technology is starting to illuminate. Come November 27, the picture will start to get even clearer. SF #5383794 v2 Responsible Practices 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

Usain Bolt overwhelmed by unveiling of statue where it all began

first_imgMultiple Olympic and world champion Usain Bolt has described the unveiling of his statue in front of Kingston’s National Stadium as one of the greatest moments of his career.The statue, commissioned by the Jamaican government and revealed by Prime Minister Andrew Holness, stands in front of the place where 15 years ago Bolt won the junior championships to announce himself to the world.”For me this is up there, it can’t be doubted that this is one of the greatest moments in my career,” Bolt told Reuters after the unveiling on Sunday.”Having a statue in the National Stadium where it all began; there are no words, I am just happy and really excited about this.”The statue was sculpted by Jamaican artist Basil Watson and features the 31-year-old in his trademark ‘lightning bolt’ pose, seen many times over the years as he set world records in the 100 and 200 metres, winning 11 world and eight Olympic golds.”It was all worth it: the losses, the injuries, everything I’ve been through, it’s all worth it,” said Bolt, who signed off his stellar career with bronze in the 100m at the world championships in London earlier this year.”It’s a wonderful thing to look back and see what your career has brought you. I’m very happy and proud of myself for the work. It’s just a good time and I am in a good place.”Holness has previously said that Bolt’s performances over the years has elevated the status of Jamaican sport.”I have always aimed to make my country proud and to put my country in the best light possible so for the Prime Minster to say that it showed that my work paid off and it’s something that I am happy about,” Bolt added. “In any way that I can continue doing that, it would be great.”advertisementBolt was stripped of one of his nine Olympic gold medals when his former 4x100m relay team mate Nesta Carter retroactively tested positive for the banned stimulant methylhexanamine at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.Carter has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport against the decision resulting from the doping test.Bolt, the only sprinter to win the 100m, 200m and 4×100 relay titles at three consecutive Olympics (2008, 2012, 2016) until Carter’s test result, was not losing any sleep over the medal missing from his glittering collection.”I haven’t really been following it (the appeal). I’m just waiting on the time for them to say what is what. I’m just focusing on which direction I want my career to go,” he said.last_img read more

Take a bow: Carlos Brathwaite hails hat-trick hero Shreyas Gopal

first_imgWest Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite has praised Rajasthan Royal’s leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal after he took a hat-trick against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) fixture which was abandoned due to rain.Gopal had dismissed the likes of RCB skipper Virat Kohli (25 off 7), AB de Villers (10 off 4) and Marcus Stoinis (0) to apply the brakes on a fine start by Bangalore and reduce them to 62-7 in the rain-hit five-overs match at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Tuesday night.Brathwaite, who plays for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in IPL, took to Twitter and said, “Take a bow Gopal, you won’t get much better hat-tricks than that.”Take a Bow Gopal , you won’t get much better Hattricks than thatCarlos Brathwaite (@TridentSportsX) April 30, 2019The hat-trick, however, couldn’t help Rajasthan snatch a victory and take home the much-needed two points as the match ended without any result after the rain came calling again.Chasing a 63-run target, the visitors were at 41/1 in 3.2 overs when the rain came again and the match had to be abandoned.Both the teams had to share the points after the result. The result also meant RCB are now officially out of the tournament. Whereas, Rajasthan with 11 points, will have to win their final encounter at any cost and also hope for favourable results in other matches in order to make it to the playoffs.Rajasthan will next lock horns with Delhi Capitals at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Saturday. RCB, meanwhile, will play their last match of the season against Sunrisers Hyderabad later the same day.advertisementAlso Read | Feels good to take those wickets: Shreyas Gopal after maiden IPL hat-trick vs RCBAlso Read | Thank you Rajasthan Royals: Steve Smith bids goodbye to IPL 2019last_img read more

The sporting year ahead: 18 dates for your diary in 2018

first_img1) Football: World Cup Russia 14 June – 15 July Manchester Arena 17 FebruaryThe semi-final of the eight-man elimination World Boxing Super Series sold out in seven minutes. It’s 2018’s most talked-about fight so far – but that’s only until two other fighters have their schedules firmed up. Anthony Joshua’s expected heavyweight unification bout with the WBO holder, Joseph Parker, is likely to be in March, while Tyson Fury, cleared to box after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban, also has his sights on a lucrative Joshua encounter. He hit 27 stone during his enforced absence but Fury’s feeling confident. “Someone labelled us the four heavyweight kings – myself, Joshua, Parker and Deontay Wilder,” he says. “I label it ‘three peasants and a king’. There’s only one king of the division and that’s me.”9) Athletics: London Marathon Central London 22 AprilExpect Mobots. Britain’s new dedicated road runner makes his first attempt over 26.2 miles since 2014, and will collect a six-figure appearance fee in the process, thanks to the public thirst for a first home winner since Paula Radcliffe in 2005. It won’t be a Farah procession, though – big name rivals include the 33-year-old Kenyan Olympic champion, Eliud Kipchoge, who was only eight seconds off Dennis Kimetto’s world record of 2hr 2min 57sec in 2016. Farah’s warm-up events include a new race in London on 4 March, The Big Half, a half-marathon starting near Tower Bridge and finishing at the Cutty Sark in Greenwich, via a loop through Docklands around Canary Wharf. He’ll be up against Britain’s second-fastest half-marathon runner, the 25-year-old Scot Callum Hawkins. “I love testing myself against the very best in the world,” says Hawkins, “and they don’t come any better than Mo.” 3) Cricket: Australia in England 13-27 JuneIt’s not the Ashes but it’s a decent alternative for England after a bruising few months – Australia arriving next summer for five one-day internationals and a Twenty20 as part of a busy England schedule in the buildup to hosting 2019’s Cricket World Cup. Also on England’s agenda: meetings with Pakistan and Scotland, and India arriving for a five-match Test series for only the second time since 1959. India’s visit starts in July with a three-match Twenty20 series, followed by three one-day internationals and the Tests at Edgbaston, Lord’s, Trent Bridge, the Ageas Bowl and The Oval.4) Winter Olympics Pyeongchang, South Korea 9-25 FebruaryBesides the Russian doping ban, the @realDonaldTrump factor and the fears that conditions will be too cold for spectators to handle (the £44.1m main stadium has no roof, leading to six fans at a recent concert there suffering hypothermia) – there’s a feeling the Winter Games should produce some old-fashioned upbeat stories, too. Chief among them is Nigeria’s women’s bobsleigh team, who need to maintain their top-40 ranking until 14 January to seal their nation’s first Winter Olympics appearance. There’s talk of film rights and they’ve already made one appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show – Ellen-fan Ngozi Onwumere telling the production team: “I hope you have an emergency room close by because when I meet Ellen … My heart … I might scream occasionally.” Also hoping to make headlines are the talented Team GB, with “10 to 12 realistic medal prospects”. They won four at Sochi 2014.

Photograph: Mikhail Metzel/TASScenter_img Tennis Twitter 10) Formula One: French Grand Prix Le Castellet 24 JuneA notable race for two reasons: it’s the first French GP for 10 years and it’s the first of a triple header: three grands prix on consecutive weekends. After France, the teams race at Austria’s Red Bull Ring on 1 July, then at Silverstone on 8 July. It means a total of five races in six weekends up to 29 July, before the month-long summer break. Other developments next season: Germany returns to the 21-race calendar; Malaysia drops out; changes have been made to improve the power unit penalty system; cars are expected to be two seconds faster per lap according to simulation data analysis; and there’s a new logo: three squat red stripes replacing the old black and red symbol. Officials say it will bring “excitement and fresh energy”; Sebastian Vettel says: “I liked the old one better.”11) Rugby union: Six Nations 3 February – 17 MarchA big opportunity for the back-to-back winners England, who could become the first nation to win three in a row. The tournament opens on 3 February with Wales versus Scotland at the Principality Stadium, France versus Ireland at the Stade de France and Italy versus England at the Stadio Olimpico. The Women’s Six Nations runs in parallel: the defending champions, England, starting against Italy at Stadio Mirabello in Reggio Emilia on 4 February. The men’s event looks particularly compelling – the Wales centre Scott Williams predicting “the toughest Six Nations to date … everyone’s playing well. Scotland especially have shown the way they want to play.” Wales will be without Sam Warburton, though, as the Lions captain recovers from knee surgery. Later in the year come the autumn internationals, including England versus the All Blacks on 10 November, as teams tune up for the 2019 World Cup in Japan.12) Football: Premier League TV rights Late FebruarySounds dry – but it’s a defining moment for Premier League suits: the size of the next TV deal defining how much they can blow on transfers, wages, executive emoluments, hospitality suite refits and agents’ fees. Oh, and on grassroots contributions, of course. Next year’s three-year contract should top the record £5.136bn deal struck with Sky and BT in 2015 – potentially by a vast amount if Amazon or Facebook join the bidding – and will change the fixture structure, too, with one package of matches on offer including eight games in a new 7.45pm slot on Saturdays. A treat for away fans. That change won’t come in until 2019-20 but elevated club spending will begin the moment the deal is confirmed. Expect many more “£50m for Kyle Walker?” moments.13) Football: the new White Hart Lane Share on LinkedIn Mo Farah: centre stage in April. Photograph: Hugh Routledge/Rex/Shutterstock Read more Big day out: Jim Furyk and Thomas Bjorn tee off from the Eiffel Tower. Photograph: Andrew Redington/Getty Images Winter Olympics 5) Athletics: Commonwealth Games Gold Coast, Australia 4-15 AprilEngland – aiming to defend their place above the hosts on top of the medal table – aren’t going under-equipped: 400 competitors and 250 support staff across 18 sports are the largest team to represent the country at an overseas sporting event. “It’s not cheap,” admits a spokesman. The 75-strong athletics team includes the 2012 Olympic long jump champion, Greg Rutherford, the 100m and 4x100m Commonwealth silver medallist Adam Gemili, the heptathlete and high jumper Katarina Johnson-Thompson and the British 100m record holder, Dina Asher-Smith, who says: “We’ve got so many medal contenders we could sweep events. Having the Commonwealth Games so early in the season really pushes you on: there’s no excuse not to do every single rep and every single step.” 70 nations are competing, with beach volleyball and women’s rugby sevens included for the first time.6) Golf: Ryder CupLe Golf National, Paris 28-30 SeptemberThe only other time the Ryder Cup was played on the continent – Valderrama in 1997 – Europe won. The odds are against a repeat this time, though the hosts have plenty of strong selection options, including the English rookies Tommy Fleetwood and Tyrrell Hatton. The year-long PR countdown began in October: organisers putting the captains, Thomas Bjorn and Jim Furyk, on a platform high up the Eiffel Tower and having them fire balls down into the Champs de Mars below – recreating Arnold Palmer’s 1976 set-piece. Furyk enjoyed it. “We started at the Golf National, had dinner at the Palace of Versailles, went to the president’s for breakfast and now we’re hitting shots off the Eiffel Tower. I just can’t imagine a better two days.” Twitter What to expect from part one of Fifa’s Ethics World Cup double header? Russia 2018 has ticked all the boxes so far: disputes over alleged corruption, human rights abuse, unchecked domestic racism, homophobia and fan violence – while the tournament organiser, Vitaly Mutko, ended 2017 being accused by the IOC of leading “an unprecedented attack on the integrity of sport” via state-sponsored doping, and stepped down. He denies wrongdoing. It’s a lot for Qatar 2022 to live up to. Vladimir Putin says overseas media should lay off and report the bigger picture. “We will bring closer the big and friendly football family – the family that values sports, friendship and fair competition.”The matches should have a familiar feel, too: Germany and Brazil favourites; England trying to handle the impossible pressure of an easy-on-paper group; and Iceland making their debut, ready to humiliate anyone who takes them lightly. They start against Argentina in Group D. “When you think of a World Cup you think of Argentina and Brazil,” says their coach, Heimir Hallgrimsson. “So for us, this is a little bit romantic.” Hugh Bowman riding Winx.

Pinterest Cricket features 7) Football: Manchester derby Etihad Stadium 7 AprilThe earliest a Premier League title has been won was 14 April 2001: Manchester United taking it with five games to spare. What odds, then, on City beating that date by seven days next year – sealing the title at home to United on 7 April? Either way, members of Manchester City’s Tunnel Club will want value for money at the first Manchester derby in the league since the milk flew at Old Trafford.Among other big days to watch out for in domestic football next year:• The top-flight’s final day on 13 May, which, as it stands now, could feature a potential multi-club relegation battle. Fixtures include Swansea v Stoke, Palace v West Brom, West Ham v Everton and Newcastle v Chelsea. • The conclusion of Sunderland’s battle to avoid having to host League One football at the ninth-largest stadium in England. • National League South drama – with three points currently separating the top six. • And the Carabao Cup final on 25 February – a chance to reflect on, and give thanks for, seven months of engaging ball-draw farce.8) Boxing: Groves v Eubank Jr Facebook Pinterest View gallery 2) Tennis: Australian Open Melbourne Park 15-28 JanuaryPlenty to look forward to in Australia: the return of Serena Williams four months after giving birth; the chance of her facing Maria Sharapova, who commented on Williams’s “thick arms and thick legs” in her 2017 memoir; the prospect of top men’s talent including Andy Murray returning from injury to stop Roger Federer winning a 20th grand slam; and some rule changes. Among the innovations: a new Bernard Tomic-inspired rule which fines players who retire or perform “below professional standards”, and more trials for the 25-second shot clock, designed to discourage slow serving. Federer, who turns 37 in 2018, isn’t a fan. “If you want a great show, it’s not possible with the shot clock. If you don’t, of course it’s a great improvement.” Facebook Tottenham’s new stadium: the changing face of White Hart Lane – in pictures 11 AugustBarring snags, Tottenham’s £800m new ground should be done by day one of 2018-19. “At the moment it’s on track,” says their executive director, Donna-Maria Cullen. “There’s nothing to tell us otherwise, though I don’t have a crystal ball.” When finished it will be London’s biggest club ground with 61,559 seats, even after Arsenal add 780 to the Emirates by 2019. Features include a retractable turf pitch above an artificial surface used for NFL games; a single-tier south stand of 17,500 seats; a Tunnel Club for watching players hawk and spit; and, in theory, a better-than-average atmosphere for a new-build, with the front row five metres from the pitch, compared with 20 metres at the London Stadium. As of now, it remains nameless, with rights yet to be sold.14) Cycling: Tour de France Starts Noirmoutier-en-l’Île, 7-29 JulyChris Froome will dominate coverage come what may – he insists he’ll clear his name after September’s failed drugs test. But also watch out for Britain’s Adam Yates, there with team Mitchelton-Scott (formerly Orica-Scott). Yates (pictured) finished fourth in the 2016 race, securing the white jersey for the best young rider, and is tipped to impress again. “The course looks as challenging as ever,” he says, “especially stage nine over the cobbles from Arras to Roubaix. But I’ll have a strong team around me.” Also next year is the four-day Tour de Yorkshire – the legacy of Yorkshire’s Tour de France Grand Départ in 2014 – from 3-6 May, which also features a two-day women’s race. Mark Cavendish plans to be there: “When you see the people of Yorkshire line the road it gives you goosebumps.” 15) Hockey: Women’s World Cup Olympic Park, London 21 July – 5 AugustSix years after London 2012, a chance to recapture that summer’s life-affirming spirit. England’s pool and potential knockout matches at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre – on the site of 2012’s Eton Manor Paralympic venue – sold out in September but seats for other games are on general sale via hockeyworldcup.seetickets.com: under‑18s’ seats starting at £1. England, beaten 1-0 by South Korea in the bronze-medal match of the Women’s Hockey World League Final in November, open up against India. “Playing in London is electric, it’s our home, our fortress,” says the captain, Alex Danson. “It’s a tournament everyone will remember for a very long time.”16) Multi-sport: European Championships UK & Germany 2-12 AugustAn inaugural event but not really brand new. The European Championships format – unrelated to the European Games – groups together existing championships of various top sports every four years. The 2018 event involves Berlin hosting the European Athletics Championships while Glasgow stages the aquatics, cycling, gymnastics, rowing and triathlon, plus the new Golf European Team Championships at Gleneagles. Glasgow’s plans include a cultural festival in George Square, while mascot duties come from the dead-eyed, commercially minded tweeting seal Bonnie, @GLA2018Mascot: “Looking for the perfect gift for your little loved one? Look how cuddly I am! Don’t miss out pals, limited availability, pre-order me today.”17) Football: Nations League Europe From 6 September Athletics Nigeria’s Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga. Photograph: Shannon Stapleton/Reuters Support The Guardian Sport Facebook Another new format – but this one rather more dense. In short, it’s Uefa’s plan to scrap most friendlies by splitting all 55 Uefa nations into four leagues: 12 in Leagues A and B, 15 in C and 16 in D, based on coefficient rankings. That, though, isn’t the half of it. At the draw next month, each of the four leagues will be split into four mini-groups of three or four teams, who’ll play each other home and away from 6 September. There’s promotion and relegation, and a June 2019 knockout among League A mini-group winners to establish a champion.But the tournament’s dark heart is the way it links in to Euro 2020 – giving four sides who fail to qualify via the usual, separate process a controversial second chance. Each league has one Euro 2020 place up for grabs, which will go to the winner of internal play-offs between the best-ranked unqualified sides in each of the four mini-groups. That has implications. Among them:• A troubled League A team could lose all their Euro 2020 qualifiers and all their Nations League games, and still qualify via the League A play-off. • If all 12 teams in League A qualify via the usual route, the League A play-off would be contested by League B teams. • And at least one League D minnow is set for a very special summer in two years’ time. Uefa deny it’s absurd: “This is the magic of football. We’re keeping the dream alive for all.”18) Horse racing: Royal Ascot 19-23 JuneThere’s one big focus in racing next year: whether or not the star Australian race mare Winx, second in the World’s Best Racehorse rankings, will arrive for a summer cameo. Her part-owner Peter Tighe said last month they would make “a good, well-judged decision … it’s a huge temptation to take on the world”. If it happens, it’ll cause a stir similar to Black Caviar’s arrival in 2012 – “The Wonder from Down Under” living up to her reputation, just, by sealing the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, despite the jockey Luke Nolen easing down prematurely. “I made an error that every apprentice is taught to avoid,” he said. “I tried to let her coast home but her big engine shut down and I shat myself. But she still won it. That’s the bloody story.” Share on Facebooklast_img read more

Kathleen Turner Helps Name Winners Of Democracy For All Video Challenge

first_imgOn Tuesday the winners of the Democracy For All Video Challenge were announced at an event aimed at putting the issue of big money in politics front-and-center and creating a platform for people to express themselves and take action to support the Democracy For All Amendment.Kathleen Turner Says No To Big MoneyCredit/Copyright: Jason DursoTwo advocacy organizations, Say No To Big Money and People For the American Way, created the video challenge that encouraged Americans to produce public service announcements supporting the proposed Democracy For All Amendment.Speaking at the National Press Club event was U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) and U.S. Representative Ted Deutch (FL-21), who are lead cosponsors of the Democracy For All Amendment (H.J.Res.22, S.J.Res.5). The winning videos were announced by Academy Award-nominated actress Kathleen Turner, with Say No To Big Money president Jeff Haggin and People For the American Way president Michael Keegan and executive vice president Marge Baker also speaking.The grand prize video, “Voters, assemble!” was created by Bryan Warner – a nonprofit communications director from Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina – and uses animation to depict a secret meeting between a group of villains who are plotting to nefariously influence politics by using big money. The video illustrates how easy it is for corporations and special interest groups to buy their way into Washington and influence policy in their favor. As the grand prize winner of the video challenge, Warner will receive $25,000.“Americans are fed up with millionaires and billionaires pumping money into shadowy Super PACs to buy our elections,” said Sen. Udall. “And thanks to the Supreme Court’s flawed decisions, including Citizens United six years ago, Congress is powerless to pass common-sense campaign finance laws. That’s why I’m pushing for a constitutional amendment to overturn those bad decisions so we can get big money out of politics. Millions of Americans nationwide have joined this grassroots push, and the Democracy For All Video Challenge has been a creative way to amplify our cause. Each video speaks to the core of our message – voters should have the loudest voices in our democracy, not wealthy special interests.”Congressman Deutch added, “A democracy for sale is not a democracy for all. Until we overturn Supreme Court decisions like Citizens United, corporations and a handful of billionaires will continue to spend hundreds of millions of dollars buying our elections and setting the agenda in Washington. Like the Democracy for All Amendment, the Democracy for All video contest is about elevating the voices of everyday Americans who may not be able to afford their own Super PACs but who have every right to be heard.”Awards were also given to five other videos, with the creators receiving $5,000 each. The winners were: “The Most Influential Man” (funniest video), “Voice of the 99” (most dramatic video), “American Show” (best original song), “Why Our Democracy Needs to be Changed” (best student video) and “Our Democracy is Not For Sale” (most creative video). All the winning videos can be viewed here.“The Democracy For All Video Challenge was created to tap into the creative potential of Americans who support a constitutional amendment that allows for reasonable limits to be set on money in elections,” said Jeff Haggin, president of Say No To Big Money. “Instead of hiring an advertising agency to produce spots promoting campaign finance reform, we decided to enable the true voice of Americans to be heard and give people across the country a chance to earn money for their efforts.”“This contest, like the amendment itself, was all about restoring the true spirit of the First Amendment,” added Marge Baker, executive vice president of People For the American Way. “There’s so much creative energy in the movement to get big money out of politics, and we wanted to put the voices of everyday Americans front and center.”The Democracy For All Amendment, currently being considered by Congress with 144 cosponsors in the House and 41 supporters in the Senate, would overturn cases such as Citizens United, the 2010 Supreme Court case that paved the way for unlimited political spending by corporations and the super wealthy.People For the American Way (PFAW) is a progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism and defend constitutional values including free expression, religious liberty, equal justice under the law, and the right to meaningfully participate in our democracy. More information is available at www.PFAW.org.Say No To Big Money is a 501c4 nonprofit corporation for the public benefit with the mission of supporting the ratification of the Democracy For All Amendment that will regulate campaign contributions. Say No To Big Money is nonpartisan and does not promote or take sides on any political issues nor endorse candidates or elections.

Inventor of World Wide Web wins computings Nobel Prize

Inventor of World Wide Web wins computing’s ‘Nobel Prize’ SAN FRANCISCO – Most people who search on Google, share on Facebook and shop on Amazon have never heard of Sir Tim Berners-Lee. But they might not be doing any of those things had he not invented the World Wide Web.Berners-Lee, 61, is this year’s recipient of the A.M. Turing Award, computing’s version of the Nobel Prize.The award, announced Tuesday by the Association for Computing Machinery, marks another pinnacle for the British native, who has already been knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and named as one of the 100 most important people of the 20th Century by Time magazine.“It’s a crowning achievement,” Berners-Lee said in an interview with The Associated Press. “But I think the award is for the Web as a project, and the massive international collaborative spirit of all that have joined me to help.”The honour comes with a $1 million prize funded by Google, one of many companies that made a fortune as a result of Berners-Lee’s efforts to make the internet more accessible. He managed that largely by figuring out a simple way to post documents, pictures and video — everything, really, beyond plain text — online.SPINNING THE WEBStarting in 1989, Berners-Lee began working on ways digital object could be identified and retrieved through browser software capable of rendering graphics and other images. In August 1991, he launched the world’s first website, http://info.cern.ch .Besides coming up with the web’s technical specifications, Berners-Lee “offered a coherent vision of how each of these elements would work together as part of an integrated whole,” said Vicki Hanson, president of the Association for Computing Machinery.In an even more significant move, Berners-Lee decided against patenting his technology and instead offered it as royalty-free software. That allowed other programmers to build upon the foundation he’d laid, spawning more than a billion websites today that have helped lure more than 3 billion people online.CAUGHT IN THE WEBThe web’s widespread appeal gratifies Berners-Lee, who now splits his time shuttling between the U.S. and Britain as a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Oxford.But he fears parts of the web will become less accessible in the U.S. if the Federal Communication Commission dismantles regulations protecting “net neutrality.” That’s the principle that internet service providers should treat all websites equally instead of favouring some destinations that might be willing to pay for special treatment.If the Trump administration tries to dump net neutrality, “it’s going to have a fight on its hands because I think the American people realize it’s important,” Berners-Lee said. “It allowed America to benefit from a thriving internet market for connectivity and content. It has become part of the spirit of America.”Berners-Lee also worries about governments around the world using the internet as a surveillance tool, calling it a “recurrent threat.” He admits that preserving personal privacy as technology advances remains a thorny problem, one that he doesn’t have a ready solution for. But figuring that out is “really important to the future of society,” he says.“As an individual, I should be able to keep my own notes, keep my own journal and not share it with anybody. That is just part of being a person.”BEYOND THE WEBLike several other prominent figures in technology, Berners-Lee isn’t sure if humanity will be better or worse off as computers grow better at thinking like people via artificial intelligence.“Computing has grown exponentially more powerful, so It’s only logical that it will get to the point when computers will become smarter than us,” Berners-Lee said. “So, yes, we should logically think about those consequences.”This is the 50th anniversary of the A.M. Turing award, named after English computer scientist Alan Turing, whose revolutionary work with early computers and artificial intelligence helped crack Nazi Germany’s codes during World War II. Previous award winners include Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn, who did some of the pioneering work on the internet that Berners-Lee spun into the World Wide Web. by Michael Liedtke, The Associated Press Posted Apr 4, 2017 5:31 am MDT Last Updated Apr 4, 2017 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Sexton scores 29 as Cavs hold off Harden Rockets 117108

CLEVELAND — Rookie Collin Sexton scored a season-high 29 points and the Cleveland Cavaliers overcame 40 points by Houston’s James Harden to win consecutive games for the first time this season, beating the Rockets 117-108 on Saturday night.Sexton, taken with the eighth pick in the draft, was 14 for 21 from the floor and hit several key baskets in the second half as the Cavaliers held off multiple runs from the Rockets.Cleveland (4-14) won 121-112 in Philadelphia on Friday and rode that momentum against the Rockets, who played without star point guard Chris Paul.Harden, playing the entire second half, was 14 for 30 from the floor with 13 assists. The reigning MVP scored 24 points in the first half, including 15 for the second straight night in the first quarter. Harden has scored at least 30 points in four consecutive games.Harden made two free throws in the third quarter, but both were waved off because of his own foul line violations.Paul, who is second on the team in scoring and leads Houston in assists, was rested after the Rockets lost in overtime to Detroit on Friday. Eric Gordon started at point guard and scored 28 points.Tristan Thompson had 16 points and 20 rebounds for Cleveland. Jordan Clarkson added 20 points.Sexton and Clarkson hit baskets after Houston cut a 10-point deficit to 106-102 with five minutes to play. Rodney Hood’s 3-pointer gave Cleveland a 115-104 lead with 2:47 remaining.The first half had 12 lead changes. Cleveland hit five 3-pointers in the second quarter, including two by Kyle Korver that helped the Cavaliers go ahead 59-50. That was the biggest lead for either team in the half.MAPPING IT OUTThe Rockets want to be cautious with how much the 33-year-old Paul plays. The nine-time All-Star is in his 14th season.“The plan was always to monitor his workload,” coach Mike D’Antoni said.Paul scored 20 points in 37 minutes Friday. He averages 17.9 points and 7.7 assists in 15 games.EARLY STATSThe first quarter produced some unusually high numbers. The Rockets had six turnovers in the first four minutes, but didn’t turn the ball over again in the period. The Cavaliers were whistled for nine team fouls and were in the penalty midway through the quarter.TIP-INSRockets: Houston had won 10 of the last 12 meetings with Cleveland going into the game. … Friday’s game began a stretch that will see the Rockets play seven of nine on the road.Cavaliers: F David Nwaba started for the third straight game in place of Larry Nance. Nwaba had steals on Houston’s first two possessions that resulted in Cleveland baskets. … G George Hill (sprained right shoulder) has begun shooting drills, but coach Larry Drew isn’t sure when he’ll return. Hill has missed the last eight games.UP NEXTRockets: Visit Washington on Monday.Cavaliers: Host Minnesota on Monday.Steve Herrick, The Associated Press read more

Duchess of Sussex brings out Queens innerchild Body language expert analyses their

Ms James suggested: “Meghan did so many self-checking gestures of anxiety which is interesting in such a confident woman.”She walked up the aisle on her own without batting an eyelid.”The duchess’s outfit – a beige Givenchy dress with caped shoulders – may have not been the ideal choice, Ms James said.”I think her outfit did her no favours. The caped shoulders restricted her arms and she lost some of her more natural movements.”But the Duchess soon eased into the day, and was a natural with the crowds who had gathered to catch a glimpse of her and her grandmother-in-law. “We saw displays which showed the pair genuinely having fun.”The Duchess of Sussex had her guard up in the morning, showing signs of anxiousness – not least when there as confusion over who was meant to get in the royal Bentley first. “Meghan was still being very careful. She sat with her legs crossed at the ankles and was clearly seeking approval,” said Ms James. The newlywed Duchess, who married the Duke of Sussex in a star-studded ceremony in Windsor last month, was nervous, repeatedly touching her hair. Their first engagement was a ceremony marking the opening of the new £1.86 billion Mersey Gateway bridge.  The Queen laughs alongside the Duchess of Sussex The rapport between the pair was obvious, with the Duchess leaning in and talking to the Queen, producing what appeared to be fits of laughter from the 92-year-old.  The Queen is greeted at Runcorn station with the Duchess standing behind herCredit:Peter Byrne/PA Ms James said the Queen was similarly beaming with smiles when she carried out her first joint engagement with the Duchess of Cambridge.They wrapped up their tour with lunch as guests of Cheshire West and Chester Council.

When she smiles you can see the young princess coming out. She’s got a beautiful childlike smile and her little hands were formed into fists at one point. Perhaps Meghan did bring a little bit more of that out in her. The Queen is greeted at Runcorn station with the Duchess standing behind her It saw the pair deep in conversation, laughing and gesturing as they watched a seven-minute-long dance performance by children and enjoyed one another’s company.  Ms James said: “The Queen doesn’t indulge in worries and she didn’t spend a lot of time checking on Meghan, but instead let her get on with it.”But when she did glance at her, it was with a beaming smile and approval.”She added: “The Queen was the happiest I’ve seen her in a long time.

Dacian Gold hits commercial stride as Mt Morgans ramps up production

first_imgDacian Gold has declared commercial production at its Mt Morgans gold operation in Western Australia, some nine months after producing its first gold bar at the mine.The declaration, made on January 1, followed combined mining rates across the operation achieving feasibility study-design levels during the December quarter, the company said.Production for the December quarter totalled 37,930 oz, a significant increase on the prior quarter and in line with the company’s guidance of progressively increasing output throughout its 2019 financial year. Gold poured for that quarter totalled 38,479 oz.Dacian said underground mining was now underway across all three declines at Westralia (Beresford South, Beresford North and Allanson), while, at the Jupiter open pit, higher‐grade ore in the Cornwall Shear Zone was expected to be mined later in the current March quarter.This combined progress across the operation will support continued operational momentum and underpin further quarterly increases in production throughout the remainder of Dacian’s 2019 financial year, the company said.Dacian Gold Executive Chairman and CEO Rohan Williams said the declaration of commercial production was another example of the company meeting its development and production targets.“We are pleased to have achieved this important milestone – exactly when we said we would,” he said. “It was an outstanding quarter, with production increasing 30% from the September quarter.”Mt Morgans is expected to produce around 200,000 oz/y of gold at an all-in sustaining cost of around A$1,000/oz ($716/oz) when fully ramped up. This will come from a reserve base that totals 1.4 Moz.last_img read more

Angry Birds gets a forcefeedback controller

first_imgRovio is attempting to, and has succeeded for the most part in getting Angry Birds on to every available platform. They’ve even had some help catering to outdated platforms with the game appearing on the Sega Genesis.Lots of platforms means a number of input methods, and Angry Birds on PC/Mac just got new one in the form of a custom force-feedback USB controller.We’ve already seen a USB slingshot created for the game, but this project is a little more advanced. It’s called the Super Angry Birds (SAB) controller, and gives you complete control over the angle and force used to fire the bird out of the slingshot. It even includes a detonator for use with those special birds.To SAB controller was created in a Haptics class at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design by Hideaki Matsui and Andrew Spitz. It brought together a range of technology including a motorized fader more commonly found in an audio mixing console, an electric motor, and an Arduino board.The fader is what slides back and forth to simulate the slingshot on-screen. The electric motor is used to apply an opposing force to catapult the bird and provide the force-feedback. Matsui and Spitz then created a force curve so they could track the force applied and transmit the appropriate input to the game. All programming was done using the visual programming tool MAX.It certainly adds something to the game that you won’t get from the more typical key or touchscreen input. If they could package this controller up into a more compact, cleaner unit, I bet they’d get backing on Kickstarter to ship it.Read more at sound + designlast_img read more

Groundhog Day as month begins with 600 people on hospital trolleys

first_img File photo Image: bedimage via Shutterstock 7,751 Views File photo Source: Simon Harris TD/Twitter Image: bedimage via Shutterstock Updated 7.55amTHIS MONTH STARTED off with 601 patients on trolleys and in wards, waiting on a bed, according to the latest figures from the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation.While the trolley figures relate directly to accident and emergency departments, the ward figures count the number of additional patients on trolleys and chairs in excess of the listed capacity of these wards, which intends to give a general overall picture of overcrowding in hospitals.The Irish Association of Emergency Medicine described the latest figures on trolleys as “Groundhog Day”.Many of the major Dublin hospitals had in excess of 20 patients on trolleys, with Beaumont (38 patients) and Tallaght Hospital (41) having the highest number in the capital.Further afield, the highest numbers across the country could be found in University Hospital Limerick (48), Cork University Hospital (43) and University Hospital Waterford (38).The overall number of patients on trolleys had been declining over the course of this month, after reaching a peak at the beginning of January.In the trolley watch figures for Monday 30 January, there were only 445 people on hospital trolleys, with increase in numbers in Dublin hospitals such as Connolly Hospital and St James’s Hospital helping to raise the trolley watch figures above 600 to kick off February.The high number of hospital admissions at the beginning of January led to national ambulance service members reporting delays of between one and three hours admitting patients to A&E.The crisis in emergency departments saw Health Minister Simon Harris describing the situation as a “perfect storm”. The latest figure of 601 patients on beds is only just short of the record high 612 observed on 3 January.Responding to the current trolley situation, the Irish Association of Emergency Medicine said in a statement: “Yearly ‘plans’ and ‘Winter Initiatives / Plans’ have failed to address the issue and the HSE continues to condemn further patients to this very unsafe situation day in, day out.How long do we have to remain stuck in this loop where there is a clear solution to the problem (the creation of additional bed capacity) and this solution is deliberately ignored?If no improvement is made in the next year, they fear that another 300 to 350 patients will have died needlessly by this date next year.Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Consultant in Emergency Medicine Fergal Hickey said that they were “very sure” that up to 350 patients would die, who otherwise would not have died, by this time next year if overcrowding continued.This opinion is based on studies from Australia, which they have applied to the Irish situation.“The evidence is very clear on this,” Hickey said. He added that at least one or two die unnecessarily in his own hospital in Sligo due to this problem each year.“I’ve had to apologise to families where their experience has resulted in a bad outcome,” he said.The key issue is the shortage of beds. There was a shortage of beds before austerity, and this shortage was worsened by austerity.He pointed to a decrease in beds in the face of increasing demand as exacerbating the problem.Hickey added that restoration of around 1800 beds he said were taken away during austerity, and the provision of several hundred more would be an essential first step in relieving the burden of high numbers on trolleys.Simon Harris responded at the time of the programme airing by tweeting the measures he believes will alleviate the problem. ‘Groundhog Day’ as month begins with 600 people on hospital trolleys The figure of 601 is just short of the high of 612 patients on trolleys at the beginning of January.

Greek beaches to be made accessible for people with disability

first_imgA new initiative is set to make Greece’s beaches – arguably the country’s most famous asset – more accessible for people with mobility problems. The initiative is part of the Tsipras government’s social policy program to promote equal rights to people with disability. According to the announcement, the government aims to build infrastructure and install all appropriate equipment to a significant number of beaches within 2018, so that they are ready by the beginning of the next tourist season to welcome anyone who is excluded from beaches at the moment – notably the disabled, the elderly, pregnant women and people recovering from injuries and illness. The program is aiming to improve the quality of life of people living with disability in Greece, but also to attract more tourists to the country, making it a preferred destination for people with disability. The project is an initiative emanating from Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ social policy office, which mobilised the economy and development ministry to draw up a plan to install infrastructure, giving independent wheelchair access to the sea and related facilities. The infrastructure will consist of non-permanent assembled mechanisms, as well as specially designed changing cabins, portable toilets, ramps, parking areas and areas providing shade and protection.The policy was announced by the Ministry of Economy and Development, which is responsible for implementing the plan, in accordance with the UN Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (which was recently made a law of the state), but also with the EU ‘Europe 2020’ strategy for growth and employment, which emphasises sustainable and inclusive policies. On Monday, the ministry will invite offers, with a budget set at €5 million in total, with a maximum of €60,000 per facility. Among potential beneficiaries are municipalities on the coast, which can each bid for up to four, and the Public Properties Company. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

La plus ancienne stratégie de défense animale se recroqueviller

first_imgLa plus ancienne stratégie de défense animale : se recroquevillerPubliant ses travaux dans la revue Biology Letters, une équipe internationale a mis en évidence, chez des trilobites – des arthropodes fossiles – d’environ 500 millions d’années découverts au Canada, un comportement de défense consistant à se lover à l’intérieur de leur squelette externe.  Les trilobites, ces arthropodes marins du Mésozoïque disparus il y 250 millions d’années et qui sont des cousins éloignés des araignées et des crustacés, détiennent un record : celui d’être les plus anciens animaux à montrer aux paléontologues leurs stratagèmes de défense. C’est ce qu’ont confirmé des chercheurs de l’Université de Cambridge (Royaume-Uni) et de l’Académie des sciences à Nankin (Chine) en découvrant des fossiles de ces animaux pliés sur eux-mêmes, dans une formation géologique des Rocheuses canadiennes, dans l’Alberta.Antérieurement, de nombreux trilobites fossilisés – très appréciés des collectionneurs pour leurs superbes ‘coquilles’ (exosquelettes) aux formes diverses et variées – avaient déjà été trouvés avec les pattes et les antennes recroquevillées autour du corps roulé en boule, à l’intérieur de leur squelette externe : une stratégie de défense un peu similaire à celle du cloporte d’aujourd’hui. Mais ces spécimens, jusqu’à présent, étaient bien plus récents que ceux découverts cette fois-ci.La plupart, en effet, étaient postérieurs à la période cambrienne, qui s’est terminée il y a environ 485 millions d’années (Ma). Or, l’équipe sino-britannique a trouvé des trilobites en position de défense qui remontent au Cambrien inférieur (il y a 542 à 513 Ma). Ces premiers ‘contorsionnistes’, toutefois, n’avaient pas entièrement maîtrisé la technique : contrairement aux trilobites plus récents, ils ne pouvaient que se plier en deux et devaient maintenir cette position au prix d’un effort musculaire constant.Des spécimens morts englués À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Cette dernière caractéristique explique que les paléontologues, jusqu’à présent, n’avaient encore pu mettre la main sur des trilobites à la fois aussi anciens et toujours en position de repli sur soi : la mort entraînant un relâchement des muscles, l’animal doit généralement reprendre sa posture étendue avant que le phénomène de fossilisation ne se mette en œuvre. Les nouveaux spécimens, eux, ont probablement été ensevelis vivants, figés dans leur position enroulée par un matériau minéral engluant tout le corps.(crédits photo : Javier Ortega-Hernández, University of Cambridge) Le 29 septembre 2013 à 19:15 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Energetic cost of the entatic state of cytochrome c quantified

first_img Explore further Potential therapeutic target for Parkinson’s disease (Phys.org)—A team of researchers at Stanford University has used ultrafast x-ray absorption and emission spectroscopy to quantify the entatic state of cytochrome c. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group outlines their procedure and what they learned. Kara Bren and Emma Raven with the University of Rochester and University of Leicester respectively offer a Perspective piece on the work done by the team in the same journal issue, and outline some of the implications regarding the role that the protein plays in cell life and death. More information: Metalloprotein entatic control of ligand-metal bonds quantified by ultrafast x-ray spectroscopy, Science (2017). science.sciencemag.org/cgi/doi … 1126/science.aam6203AbstractThe multifunctional protein cytochrome c (cyt c) plays key roles in electron transport and apoptosis, switching function by modulating bonding between a heme iron and the sulfur in a methionine residue. This Fe–S(Met) bond is too weak to persist in the absence of protein constraints. We ruptured the bond in ferrous cyt c using an optical laser pulse and monitored the bond reformation within the protein active site using ultrafast x-ray pulses from an x-ray free-electron laser, determining that the Fe–S(Met) bond enthalpy is ~4 kcal/mol stronger than in the absence of protein constraints. The 4 kcal/mol is comparable with calculations of stabilization effects in other systems, demonstrating how biological systems use an entatic state for modest yet accessible energetics to modulate chemical function.

Credit: (c) Science  23 Jun 2017: Vol. 356, Issue 6344, pp. 1236 , DOI: 10.1126/science.aan5587 Journal information: Science Cytochrome c is a protein that exists in many plants, animals and unicellular organisms. In humans, its main purposes are ferrying electrons in mitochondria and assisting with apoptosis (normal cell death and the processes surrounding it.) These two functions have been shown in prior efforts to rely on the position of methionine residue. When sulfur works with iron, the protein is ready to transfer electrons. Otherwise, it engages in peroxidase activities. In this new effort, the researchers sought to better understand the energetics of the protein by probing the iron and sulfur bond. Entatic states, Bren and Raven point out, are very important in bioinorganic chemistry—it actually translates to something that is stretched when subjected to tension.To better understand the bond between the two elements, the researchers temporarily forced them apart using a Linac Coherent Light Source X-ray free electron laser and then timed how long it took the two components to reform using iron X-ray emission spectroscopy. They found that the environment in which they existed boosted bond strength by four kilocalories per mole, which was enough to allow the protein to toggle between its functional states and to quantify the energy cost of the entatic state.As Bren and Raven note, the results of the study have implications regarding the role that cytochrome plays in respiration, which they relate to living and apoptosis, which they relate to death. To promote continued living the protein helps to maintain a certain reduction potential. For apoptosis, the entatic state is disrupted allowing peroxidase activity to be enhanced.last_img read more

Food allergy can become fatal for your kid

first_imgA 13-year-old Indian-origin boy in London died last month after suffering a severe allergic reaction to a piece of cheese. According to media reports, Karanbir Cheema was allergic to wheat, gluten and dairy and his condition was well known at school but he came in contact with the allergen in cheese as it was allegedly forced on him by a schoolmate.Food allergy or intolerance, which can cause symptoms ranging from a harmless skin rash to a potentially lethal anaphylactic shock, are estimated to affect four to six per cent of children and four per cent of adults, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).If left untreated, a food allergy can turn fatal, especially in children, because the body’s immune system considers the proteins and complex carbohydrates present in the food as foreign.”It is only in rare cases that one can get a severe allergic response to any food allergen. Food items like cheese have other ingredients which may have caused severe allergic reaction. Commonly mild allergy, however, does not cause such severe reactions,” said Vivek Raj, Director (Gastroenterology), Max Super Speciality Hospital.According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there are eight foods that are common for allergic reactions in a large segment of the sensitive population. These include, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, shellfish, fish, wheat and their derivatives, soy and their derivatives, and sulphites (chemical-based, often found in flavours and colours in foods) at 10 parts per million (ppm) and over.These can cause several types of allergies such as skin manifestations which include rashes, swelling and itching, respiratory symptoms including wheezing, bronchospasm and choking and gastrointestinal symptoms including cramping, vomiting and diarrhoea. Some also cause low blood pressure which manifests as light-headedness, dizziness or even a fainting spell.Allergy to any food item may cause bronchial secretions, which can lead to bronchospasm – a sudden constriction of the muscles in the walls of the bronchioles in the respiratory tract.”As a result, the patient experiences choking and breathing difficulty, which, if not treated timely, may increase the risk of death,” added Rakesh Gupta, Senior Consultant, Apollo Hospitals.Further, children are much more vulnerable to food allergies than adults as the allergies fade away by adulthood.”As children grow older, they outgrow some of the allergies as their immune system matures. Also, the allergens are identified in childhood and then the person learns to avoid those as an adult,” Raj noted. However, allergies are not just hereditary but may be related to gender, according to recent research published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.The study revealed that the genetic risk of a child having allergies doubles if the parent of the same sex is an allergy sufferer. Thus, mothers pass the risk of allergies to their daughters, as do fathers to their sons.Moreover, food allergies can worsen other conditions such as asthma and diabetes. If a patient already has other allergy-linked conditions like asthma, then the impact of food allergy can be more, doctors said. “As there is no cure to food allergy, the only way to prevent it is not to eat that food item,” suggested Ritika Samaddar, a Delhi-based nutritionist.”The allergy can be confirmed by skinprick tests and/or bloods tests to measure the allergy antibodies,” she added. Because fatal and near-fatal food allergy reactions can occur at school or other places outside the home, parents of a child with food allergies need to make sure that their child’s school has a written emergency action plan. The plan should provide instructions on preventing, recognising and managing food allergies and should be available in the school and during activities such as sporting events and field trips, experts suggested. However, “if any allergic item is consumed, the patient should be immediately rushed to the hospital. No drug should be taken without a doctor’s prescription”, Gupta said.last_img read more

Charkha to provide jobs to five crore women

first_imgThe Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Giriraj Singh, on Monday, said that following the ‘Khadi for Fashion’ call by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the ministry had planned to connect at least five crore village women to Charkha (spinning wheel).Addressing the Gandhi Jayanti Celebrations at Khadi Bhawan in Connaught Place, the minister said that Khadi has now become popular among younger generation too. “For a significant span of time Khadi was meant for either dadaji (older ones) or netaji (politicians). But, due to the initiatives and appeals made by our Prime Minister – who is himself the latest USP of Khadi –Khadi has now become a fashion trend among the youth,” he said, adding, “Even the results speak. The previous governments could increase the sale by only 70 percent in 10 odd years, but we enhanced it to 90 percent.” Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSpeaking of solar charkhas, the minister said that it would provide employment to at least five crore village women in the coming five years. “With five pilot projects at Varanasi, Nawada and other places, we are already on our heels with this project. It will ensure a regular income between Rs 6000 and Rs 10,000 to each of the women,” he said.

vehicle while in Kogi Senator Dino Melaye had on Thursday disclosed that he escaped another assassination attempt on his way to Isanlu in Yagba East local government council to commission some projects It was gathered that Dino Melaye who left his country home at Ayetoro-gbede met roadblock with the heavy truck shortly before Isanlu as the gunmen also set up bonfire with tyres blocking any one moving into the town But the Kogi State Police Command in a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer DSP William Ovye Aya described Melaye’s statement as misleading and covering up the heinous crime committed by his hired aides who launched a lethal attack on police officers in the course of their normal duty DSP Aya also asked Senator Melaye to report with people in his convoy to the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Police State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department Lokoja to assist in the investigation of the case Narrating the incident the Kogi Police said that on ‘Thursday at about 1530hours a team of policemen from the Command was on a routine Anti-Robbery/Kidnapping patrol along Aiyetoro Gbede – Mopa Road and during the patrol and as it is often the practice the team pinned down at a point at Iyah Gbede Junction where they were observing the highway and occasionally conducting Stop and Search “It was in this process a long convoy of vehicles coming from Mopa towards Aiyetoro Gbede approached the Point Officers of the Command at the Point flagged down the convoy While the lead vehicle a Toyota Hilux van which was later discovered to be conveying officers of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps stopped to introduce themselves other vehicles in the convoy dangerously zoomed off without regards for the safety of the officers on ground The Police further said that ‘surprisingly some plain clothed armed men occupying a white Toyota Hilux van without registration numbers without provocation fired gunshots at the officers of the Anti-Robbery /Kidnapping Patrol Team “One of the officers a Sergeant was hit by bullet on the right part of his chest as a result of which he sustained grievous injury ‘The Officer is currently lying critically ill in the hospital where he has undergone a live threatening and currently recuperating ‘Expectedly the policemen in self defense responded by firing back to repel the unexpected attack Vehicles in the convoy nevertheless drove away from the scene ‘It was not until the officers of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps were questioned that it was realized that the convoy was that of Distinguished Senator Dino Melaye “It was ‘rather unfortunate that Senator Dino could after this dastardly act by his aides be going around with armed men unknown to the Command who could launch such a lethal attack on police officers in the course of their normal duty It is more saddening that the Senator could turn around to issue misleading statements to cover up the heinous crime committed by his hired aides “While the command has instituted a high powered investigation panel into the incident Distinguished Senator Melaye is hereby advised to report with people in his convoy to the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Police State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department Lokoja to assist in the investigation’ In another development suspected political
