Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Stock market crash: I’d follow Warren Buffett and buy good-value shares to make a million Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The stock market crash has prompted many to hunt for cheap shares. But Warren Buffett – arguably the world’s greatest investor – is on record as saying: “Buying cheap businesses is foolish.”Indeed, he stopped buying cheap businesses almost 60 years ago. And he moved away from the so-called ‘cigar-butt’ style of investing that focused on ‘cheap’ and ignored ‘quality’. 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…Hunting for good value in the stock market crashThese days, Warren Buffett doesn’t muddle up ’good value’ with ‘cheap’. And he was very clear about that in his 1989 letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders. However, it’s true that he started off investing in purely cheap businesses. But his thinking started to evolve as long ago as 1965.Berkshire Hathaway itself was a ‘cheap’ investment that went wrong. He bought the failing textile business because the indicators made it look cheap on the numbers. But the entire sector was in decline and no amount of reinvestment, cost-saving or efficiency improvements could save it.Buffett reckons by the time he’d bought Berkshire Hathaway, he was becoming aware that the strategy of buying cheap was problematic. He said in that 1989 shareholder letter: “Unless you are a liquidator, that kind of approach to buying businesses is foolish.”  Indeed, buying Berkshire Hathaway marked the end of his original approach to investment based on buying cheap.  The only way he managed to save his entire investment from going down the tubes was to reinvest Berkshire Hathaway’s cash flow into better, unrelated businesses and other stocks. He stopped reinvesting in the textile operations and, in the end, closed them all down.Buffett’s cigar-butt approach to investing disappeared in its last puff of smoke almost six decades ago. And in the 2014 shareholder letter, he underlined the change, saying: “Forget what you know about buying fair businesses at wonderful prices; instead, buy wonderful businesses at fair prices.”Quality firstSo now he focuses on the quality of the business’s underlying shares. We can find initial indicators of quality by looking for high profit margins and decent returns against assets and capital employed. But I reckon relying purely on numbers is insufficient.My guess is Buffett spends a lot of time thinking about the opportunities a business has in its market niche. He also talks a lot about economic moats, meaning that a business must have a sustainable competitive advantage that cannot be easily eroded by competitors.To Warren Buffett, a wonderful business has all those quality attributes and when he’s found them he aims to buy their shares as cheaply as possible. In that way, he’s buying good value. Indeed, I reckon quality plus a fair price equals good value. And I’d follow Warren Buffett and buy good-value shares like that to make a million. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Kevin Godbold | Sunday, 9th August, 2020 See all posts by Kevin Godboldlast_img read more

Gregory S. Straub al Secretariado, los coordinadores y supervisores de la 77a. Convención General en Indianápolis, IN, el 2 de Julio de 2012.Hay pocas palabras que connoten tanto como la palabra casa. Casa y las expresiones que de ella se extrapolan ejercen poderosas influencias en nuestras emociones. Irse a casa traduce bienvenida, satisfacción y descanso. Lejos de casa expresa distancia, soledad y desconexión. Estar de regreso en casa significa reunión, confort y celebración.Uno de los privilegios de ser laico es el de poder optar por una iglesia en particular. Cuando los laicos se mudan a un sitio nuevo, suelen probar varias iglesias, con frecuencia dentro de una denominación en la cual se han sentido cómodos en el pasado, pero a veces entre varias denominaciones, hasta que encuentran una en que se sienten como en casa. Cuando yo era rector, una vez entré en la iglesia un día de semana y me encontré a una mujer sentada en uno de los bancos. Me dijo que estaba en la ciudad, buscando casas, pero quería ver primero si ésa era una iglesia en la cual ella podría adorar. Quería saber si en la iglesia se había orado durante bastante tiempo. (En ese momento en la iglesia se había orado por más de doscientos años.) La mujer finalmente compró la casa, se unió a la iglesia y se convirtió en una comulgante activa y dedicada.Un centro de convenciones es la antítesis de una casa. Es de talla universal. Carece de personalidad, de encanto y de calidez. Ha visto incontable número de convenciones y de actos, ninguno de los cuales lo cambio para mejor o peor. El centro de convenciones es sencillamente un espacio virgen, siempre presto a adaptarse a las necesidades del próximo grupo. Y, sin embargo, durante los próximos 10 días será el sitio donde sesionará la 77ª. Convención General de la Iglesia Episcopal. Sus salones resonaran con oraciones, lecturas bíblicas y cánticos. Dentro de sus paredes tendrán lugar elecciones y debates. El rumbo de la Iglesia para los próximos tres años se fijará aquí. Será, durante un tiempo, la sede del gobierno de la Iglesia.El capítulo catorce del evangelio según San Juan contiene la promesa de Jesús de que él y el Padre harían su morada entre sus seguidores. Jesús reitera la antigua creencia judía de que la casa de Dios está en medio del pueblo de Dios. Para simbolizar la presencia de Dios entre ellos, los judíos de la antigüedad llevaban consigo en sus andanzas una caja de cuero que contenía las tablas de la Ley que Moisés había traído del [monte] Sinaí. Los judíos de épocas posteriores creían que Dios estaba localizado en el templo de Jerusalén, pero Jesús le presta oídos a la tradición más antigua. Dios no tiene una casa en particular. Dios habita dondequiera que habita Su pueblo. En el mito esto se ilustra con el relato del nacimiento de Jesús. Jesús nace en un establo, no tiene casa. Hace su casa entre los que le siguen, como María, Marta y Lázaro de Betania. La casa de ellos se convierte en la suya.Al igual que el pueblo de Israel, creemos que Dios está con nosotros en convención. Creemos que nuestras deliberaciones han de estar centradas en Dios y que nuestros votos han de estar inspirados por el Espíritu Santo. Porque estamos aquí, creemos que Dios está aquí, y donde Dios se encuentre, ésa es [Su] casa, dondequiera que esté. Hacer del Centro de Convenciones de Indiana una casa para Dios y para el pueblo de Dios exige de personas que la cuiden, y es ahí donde intervienen los voluntarios. Ustedes son los cuidadores de la Convención. Ustedes proporcionan los servicios que transforman un espacio vacío en la casa de la Convención de la Iglesia. Son ustedes los que hacen las camas y ponen las mesas, ustedes los que prenden el fuego del hogar y preparan los bufets, ustedes los que esperan a la puerta y brindan una palabra de bienvenida. Si la 77ª. Convención de la Iglesia Episcopal llega a considerar este lugar como su segunda casa, ustedes habrán realizado muy bien sus tareas.Las casas, ya sean habitaciones humanas, lugares de culto o centros de convención, son sólo espacios vacíos hasta que los hacemos nuestros. Investimos a nuestras casas, ya se trate de una residencia, de una iglesia o de un centro de convenciones, con nuestras preciadas emociones que incluyen los recuerdos del pasado, el amor por las personas que asociamos con ellos y las esperanzas para el futuro. Que Indianápolis sea nuestra Jerusalén, al menos por diez días, que sea nuestro feliz hogar.

CME Addresses Volatility in Cattle Markets with Trading Change

first_img SHARE SHARE CME Addresses Volatility in Cattle Markets with Trading Change By Hoosier Ag Today – Feb 1, 2016 Facebook Twitter Cattle futures were added to a system that caps how many orders traders can send in relation to the number of trades they execute to curb volatility. The CME Groups made the change in time for futures trading Monday. The move was a response to a letter penned by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. CME Chairman Terry Duffy announced the change last week while speaking at NCBA’s Cattle Industry Convention. In its letter to the CME Groups last month, NCBA members said they suspected that high-frequency traders were causing extra volatility in the cattle markets. However, Duffy responded saying 10 percent of cattle futures trading is done by high-frequency traders, compared with roughly 50 percent of all CME trading.

Second Palestinian journalist dies after being shot at Gaza-Israel border

Organisation May 28, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists News PalestineMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abuses Violence Help by sharing this information RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes April 26, 2018 – Updated on April 27, 2018 Second Palestinian journalist dies after being shot at Gaza-Israel bordercenter_img News Receive email alerts RSF_en to go further News Aged 25, Hussein died yesterday from the gunshot injury he sustained on 13 April. According to Rami el Sharafi, a fellow reporter for Radio Sout al Shaab, he was 700 metres from the border, in a calm place near a group of static demonstrators, when he was suddenly brought down by a clearly direct and deliberate shot. At the time, Hussein was wearing a royal-blue helmet to which the fluorescent yellow letters “TV” were affixed, and a bullet-proof vest bearing the word “Press.” This is confirmed by amateur video footage. As well as for Radio Sout al Shaab, Hussein was also working for the Bisann News website. “We offer our condolences to Ahmed Abou Hussein’s family while voicing our utter consternation and incomprehension,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Why was this journalist deliberately targeted when he was several hundred metres from the border? We call on the Israeli and Palestinian authorities to launch an independent investigation without delay and to do whatever is necessary to ensure that those responsible for this deliberate crime against press freedom are brought to justice.” Hussein’s death comes less than a month after that of Yasser Murtaja, a reporter who died on the night of 6 April after being shot earlier that day by Israeli soldiers while covering the “Great Return March” demonstrations by Palestinians at the border. He was also wearing a “Press” vest that clearly identified him as a journalist. At least nine other Palestinian journalists have been injured by Israeli soldiers since the wave or protests began on 30 March. Most were hit by explosive or dum-dum type rounds. According to the NGO Médecins sans Frontières, the injuries have been extraordinarily devastating. Youssef al Kronz, a freelance photographer who was hit in both legs while covering the 30 March demonstration from a position 750 metres from the border, ended up having to have much of his left leg amputated. He was also wearing a vest that clearly identified him as a journalist. Israel is ranked 87th out of 180 countries in the latest World Press Freedom Index. The Palestinian Territories are ranked 137th.

Oakland teachers’ strike ends with 11 percent raise and halt on charter schools

first_imgJustin Sullivan/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) — Oakland teachers ended their seven-day strike on Friday, walking away with an 11 percent raise for educators living in one the most expensive areas in the U.S.The Oakland Education Association and the Oakland Unified School District [OUSD] announced that the agreement would also limited class sizes and put a halt on charter schools.“This is a historic contract with a win in every major proposal we made, that moves us toward a win for the schools Oakland students deserve!” the teachers’ union wrote in a statement announcing the deal. “We FORCED Oakland Unified School District to invest in keeping teachers in Oakland – which will give our kids experienced teachers in their classrooms.”Likewise, in a press release from school district, Superintendent Kyla Johnson-Trammell praised the agreement.“Our teachers are the core of everything we do as a school district, and we are pleased to have reached a tentative agreement that shows them how valuable they are,” she said. “The contract will help ensure more teachers stay in Oakland and that more come to teach in our classrooms and support our students.”California Sen. Kamala Harris, a 2020 presidential candidate who has been outspoken in her support for the Oakland teachers, called the deal an “important victory for teachers, students, and unions — proving the power is always with the people.” What an important victory for teachers, students, and unions — proving the power is always with the people. #OUSDstrike— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) March 2, 2019Prior to the strike — which kept 97 percent of students out school — the union and the school district failed to produce an agreement after two years of negotiations.After 95 percent of Oakland public school teachers walked out for a week, marking the first time educators went on strike in 23 years.The deal for Oakland’s educators is the latest of several strikes by teachers across major U.S.cities.Teachers and students whose parents kept them home to support the strike will return to school on Monday. Schools had been open and operating with a skeleton crew of substitute teachers.“I personally agree with so much of what the teachers have been saying,” Johnson-Trammell said. “We cannot fix decades of chronic underinvestment in education with a single contract, but this is an important first step. We look forward to working together, directing the passion and energy that we saw during the strike into a collective effort to increase state funding and build the schools our students deserve. In this, we are united.”The end of the Oakland strike marks the most recent resolution to walkouts between teachers and school districts, starting in West Virgnia and including Los Angeles and Denver.The agreement still needs to be ratified, after which the teachers will receive a 3 percent bonus, according to the union’s statement.The 11 percent pay bump will be spread over four years. Like in Los Angeles, where teachers went on strike in January to protest large class sizes and a lack of resources, such as counselors, nurses and psychologists, Oakland teachers ended the strike with promises of more support personnel. Oakland high schools will reduce classes by one student next year, followed by another one-student reduction in 2021-2022 school year.Oakland is also similar to Los Angeles, which faces a drastic wealth disparity between highly paid tech and entertainment industry workers which has squeezed residents with middle class jobs and given rise to an increase in homelessness.The Oakland teachers also won a concession from the school board to introduce a resolution calling for a charter school moratorium, similar to the one introduced by LA schools.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Companies run risk of diversity claims

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Companies run risk of diversity claimsOn 24 Sep 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Employers risk facing discrimination claims from staff because they arefailing to communicate their equal opportunities policies and are not keepingpace with legislation. A survey of 1,100 employers by law firm Pinsent Curtis Biddle reveals thatmany firms are becoming complacent about equality and diversity and are beingchallenged at tribunal by employees. The survey shows that although most firms have equal opportunities policiesin place they are rarely reviewed. They are failing to actively promote them tostaff and fail to keep pace with changes in legislation. According to the the poll, more than 30 per cent of firms don’t reviewpolicies regularly, only 53 per cent have diversity training and just 2 percent report their policy as ‘very effective’. At the same time companies are becoming more vulnerable to employmenttribunal claims. The number of disability claims has increased over the lastthree years and sex discrimination claims doubled last year. Ashley Norman, a diversity specialist at Pinsent Curtis Biddle, said theapproach to equality issues by employers was “worryingly reactive”.He stressed that simply having an equal opportunities policy in place was not asafeguard against a claim. “There are beacons of best practice but, in the main, employers haveallowed this complex area of law to get away from them. Employers who pay scantregard to legislation are putting themselves and their staff at risk,” he said.www.pinsents.comlast_img read more

Outdoor Updates: Alaska’s sea ice has completely melted away from its shores

first_imgLike much of the arctic, Alaska has had an unbelievably hot summer. In July, the state experienced a historic heatwave, with temperatures hitting the 90’s in some parts of Alaska. Temperatures have remained above average and the waters of the interior Arctic Ocean have continued to warm. And now the latest news out of Alaska: the ice within 150 miles of land has melted. “Alaska waters are ice-free,” said Rick Thoman, a climate specialist at the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy. But the tree-planting campaign doesn’t stop there. The country’s Prime Minister tweeted that Ethiopia plans to plant 4 billion trees during the rainy season, which takes place between May and October. Less than 4 percent of Ethiopia’s land is currently covered in trees. A recent study suggests that restoring the world’s downed forests has the potential to remove two-thirds of climate change causing carbon in the atmosphere.  Ethiopia plants more than 353 million trees in one day to combat climate change Alaska’s sea ice has completely melted away from its shores Ethiopia set an unofficial world record last week when over 353 million trees were planted throughout the country in 12 hours. The reforestation campaign, lead by the country’s Prime Minister, planted a total of 353,633,600 tree seedlings, smashing the original goal of 200 million trees. This isn’t the first time Arctic sea ice has melted from Alaska’s coast. In 2017, sea ice disappeared completely during the melt season. But this year marks the earliest year on record that the sea ice has vanished. Jeremy Mathis, an Arctic researcher and board director at the National Academies of Sciences told Mashable, “I’m running out of adjectives to describe the scope of change we’re seeing.”  He hasn’t aged a bit, but despite his youthful appearance, Smokey Bear turns 75-years-old today. The furry icon of the country’s longest public service campaign was born on August 9, 1944. He was the brainchild of the U.S. Forest Service and the Ad Council during a time when federal officials worried the country’s forests could become targets during WWII. Today, Smokey still has work to do. A recent report showed that people caused 84 percent of the forest fires started between 1992 and 2012. Happy birthday, Smokey Bear To celebrate the bear’s birthday, Smokey requests that the public “take a video singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to me, your pal Smokey Bear and use the hashtag #SingForSmokey.”last_img read more

Proposal calls for recording all JNC interviews

first_img June 15, 2004 Senior Editor Regular News Proposal calls for recording all JNC interviews Proposal calls for recording all JNC interviews Gary Blankenship Senior Editor The Bar Board of Governors has asked the Judicial Nominating Procedures Committee to develop a rule that would allow the recording of all judicial candidate interviews conducted by the state’s judicial nominating commissions.The board acted at its May 28 meeting in Hollywood on a proposal by board member Jennifer Coberly. Coberly had suggested the recording idea at the board’s April meeting, but governors then voted to seek the input of the JNPC and the Judicial Administration, Selection, and Tenure Committee.Richard Doran, chair of the JNPC, told the board that a survey of his committee found 17 members in favor of recording candidate interviews, 14 opposed, three abstaining, and nine not voting. (On JAST, three supported, seven opposed and one was mixed.)“I think the committee is prepared to continue looking at this,” Doran said, adding they could take up the proposal at the June meeting.He also said the committee values its job of providing training for JNC members. “We will continue to work hard on that. We are enthusiastic about the role we have in the Bar,” Doran said.Coberly made the motion to task the JNPC with drawing up an amendment to the JNC Uniform Rules of Procedure to provide for recording all JNC interviews using court reporters who have agreed to volunteer their services.She said she hoped the new proposed uniform rule could be considered at the next scheduled JNC annual training session, usually conducted in the fall. She also thanked 15th Circuit board member Amy Smith for helping line up volunteer court reporting companies around the state. The 15th Circuit JNC has routinely recorded its interviews using a volunteer court reporter for several years.Coberly’s proposal to have the interviews recorded came after a controversy involving allegations of improper questions were asked last year of candidates during interviews by the 17th Circuit JNC.That led to a call for better training of JNC members and discussions of other possible reforms. Coberly and supporters of recording the interviews argued that would provide protection for both candidates and JNC members by providing a record of what was said at the interviews.Under the Florida Constitution, all JNC meetings and interviews are open to the public, except for deliberations where candidates are nominated to the governor for appointment.last_img read more

Indonesia reports 75th avian flu death

first_imgMay 7, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Indonesia reported today that a 29-year-old woman who died 4 days ago had H5N1 avian influenza, according to news services, signaling the first confirmed case anywhere in nearly a month.The woman was admitted to a hospital in Medan in northern Sumatra May 1 and died May 3, according to an Agence France-Press (AFP) report quoting an official named Suhardaningrum of the national avian flu information center.Her death raises Indonesia’s H5N1 death toll to 75, according to AFP. The total case count at the time of Indonesia’s last case, in early April, was listed as 94.The World Health Organization (WHO) has not included any Indonesian cases in its H5N1 count since the country stopped sharing H5N1 virus samples with the agency in late January. The WHO lists 81 cases with 63 deaths for Indonesia, out of a global total of 291 cases with 172 deaths.Two series of tests confirmed that the Sumatran woman was infected with H5N1, Suhardaningrum told AFP. Other officials said she had had no known contact with sick poultry and it was unclear how she contracted the disease, AFP reported.Reuters reported that the woman was from Pekanbaru in Sumatra’s Riau province. She had been suffering from fever and respiratory problems, a health ministry official said.Before today, the latest human H5N1 case was that of a 15-year-old Egyptian girl, reported Apr 8. She died Apr 10. Indonesia had reported a case in a 29-year-old man on Apr 7.Indonesia stopped sending H5N1 virus samples to the WHO at the end of 2006 out of opposition to the WHO practice of sharing the samples with drug companies, which, in Indonesia’s view, use the samples to make vaccines priced beyond the country’s reach.In late March, Indonesia said it would resume sharing samples in return for a WHO promise to develop new guidelines for sample sharing and, in the interim, to refrain from supplying Indonesian samples to drug companies without the country’s permission.But the country had not provided any more viruses as of last week. Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari said May 2 that no samples would be sent until the country had a written guarantee that they would not be turned over to vaccine makers without Indonesia’s consent.H5N1 samples are used to monitor the virus’s evolution, spread, and resistance to antiviral drugs, as well as to make vaccines.See also:WHO avian influenza situation updates 9 CIDRAP News story “Indonesia, Egypt report H5N1 cases”last_img read more

No EV? Park outside new capital city and take public transportation

first_imgTopics : “We will produce lithium batteries in the region with hydropower energy. At the moment [mining tycoon] Andrew Forrest from Australia is there to conduct [feasibility] studies to also look at hydro-green energy that will be produced after lithium batteries,” said the retired army general.The plan is in line with the government’s vision of promoting EVs, which are considered cleaner as they do not use fossil fuels, with a greater goal of reducing the country’s carbon emissions while promoting domestic battery production. Indonesia is rich in cobalt and manganese, the main components for EV batteries.Hayu Prasasati, secretary of the new capital city secretariat at the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas), said the new capital would also be developed using transit-oriented development (TOD) methods whereby every center of business and entertainment would be able to be accessed within walking distance.Read also: Technology, regulation key to driving xEV adoption in Indonesia: Seminar“This would be a compact city and will be developed into clusters. In every cluster there will be centers of activities,” she said. “So, it won’t be like Jakarta, where every time we want to go to work, we need to allocate two hours on the road in advance. With clusters, we can get to different destinations in just 10 minutes.”The government is also aiming for 80 percent of people’s movements in the city being by public transportation, walking or cycling. The public transportation system is expected to reduce people’s travel times. The new capital city will be developed on 256,000 hectares, with buildings and infrastructure occupying only a fifth at 56,000 ha and the rest green areas. The government will start developing road access to and from the new city this year. As the government brushes up on its plans to ensure transportation in the new capital city fully involves electric vehicles (EVs), it has come up with the idea of developing parking lots surrounding the area, a senior minister has said.Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Pandjaitan said on Wednesday that as all vehicles in North Penajam Paser and Kutai Kartanegara, both in East Kalimantan, must be EVs, non-EVs from surrounding cities such as Samarinda and Balikpapan would be prohibited from entering.“Non-electric vehicles cannot enter the new capital city. They must park and the passengers enter the city using public transportation. There will be parking lots for non-EVs” he told a discussion forum about the new capital city’s transportation system development in Jakarta.center_img President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has announced that the new capital city development will be focused on the basis of a technology-driven green city with an integrated transportation system.

‘Victory for French football’ as fans return and witness 9-0 PSG rout

first_img“It is a victory for French football, sport in general,” said outgoing Sports Minister Roxana Maracineanu who was at the match. “I am delighted that football in France can resume in a popular way, with more people in the stadiums. It is the only country in western Europe to be able to do this.”Unlike Germany, England, Italy and Spain, France abandoned its league season in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, but when the other four countries resumed their leagues, they did so behind closed doors.Although social distancing rules were in place, fans took a few liberties once they were in the 25,000-capacity Stade Ocean on Sunday. “It’s a bit like a return to normal life, even if there are some drastic conditions,” said Johan Vattier, president of Les Barbarians Havre, the club’s biggest supporters group. “We don’t give a damn about PSG, this match is first and foremost a way to get back together with our mates!””It’s not easy for a group like ours to enforce the rules because we’re used to cramming together, but we’re going to try to respect them as much as possible,” he added. “We want to start next season with fans in the ground.”Alan, 20, a student in Le Havre, who is a PSG fan, said it had been a dream to finally see his team in the flesh and he had not thought about the health risk.”When I saw that it was Paris, I didn’t even think about it,” he said. “Closed-door games on TV are boring.” On the field, Neymar and Mauro Icardi each scored twice and Kylian Mbappe once before PSG made 10 changes leading 5-0 at half time. Pablo Sarabia, with two, Idrissa Gueye and Arnaud Kalimuendo scored in the first 15 minutes of the second half to complete the rout as PSG started to warm up for a busy few weeks in late July and early August.”We are back! A friendly that feels like a final with a knot in my stomach,” Neymar wrote on Instagram before kick-off.PSG are due to play Saint-Etienne in the French Cup final on July 24 and Lyon in the French League Cup Ffinal on July 31 before resuming their Champions League campaign away to Atalanta on August 12.Both French finals will be at the 80,000-seat Stade de France in Paris.Maracineanu said the attendance limit would be reviewed on July 18 and would consider adjusting the limit so it was proportional with the size of the stadium.Topics : Paris Saint-Germain routed second division Le Havre in a friendly on Sunday remarkable not for the 9-0 score, but because it drew the biggest crowd for a match in one of Europe’s ‘Big Five’ football nations since early March.The French government relaxed the health protocols before the weekend to allow for a total attendance of 5,000, including players, journalists and staff, at games and while the match at Le Havre was not the first to be played, the others involved only lower-division clubs.For the game at Le Havre, the tickets, priced between 30 euros ($34) and 60 euros, sold out in six minutes. last_img read more

​Booming Swedish economy boosts inflows for pension providers

first_imgAccording to the report, premium payments to occupational pension schemes grew by 12% over the past year across the board, or by SEK18bn (€1.7bn) in absolute terms.Within this, inflows to collectively agreed occupational pension schemes using Sweden’s online pension centre, known as Valcentralen, increased by 17% or just over SEK10bn. For those schemes outside the election centre system, contributions rose 9%, or just over SEK2bn.The association attributed the rise in part to the increase in provisions for the occupational pension system, which was due to stronger economic conditions boosting the rate of employment and the total wage bill in Sweden.Svensk Försäkring also said, however, that Swedes were earning more and entering the higher pension contribution bracket of 30% of salary or higher, instead of 4.5%. Contributions to Swedish occupational pension providers increased by 17% in the first quarter compared to the same period last year, according to figures published by Swedish industry association Svensk Forsäkring.Of the country’s main providers, Folksam and Alecta increased their market share over the period, while Skandia and AMF experienced decreases, the data showed.The three largest funds – Folksam, Skandia and Alecta – accounted for 38% of premiums paid annually, as of 31 March.Martin Solberger, quantitative analyst at Svensk Försäkring, said: “There are several reasons why occupational pensions are growing strongly. Provisions for the occupational pension system have increased, in many contract areas.”last_img read more

OWA Competition Looks to Make Offshore Wind Vessels Greener

first_imgThe Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) plans to start a new industry competition next month with the aim of reducing emissions and fuel consumption in offshore wind vessels.OWA is now calling on the industry to respond to a Request for Information (RFI) to inform the scope of the competition.The RFI is the first stage in the competition that will have an estimated funding envelope of circa GBP 400,000. The results from the RFI will help gauge the current interest and development levels, and assist efforts to tailor the competition to best suit industry needs.The initial focus will be on systems, subsystems, and technology that support the operation of Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV). However the industry’s view for larger vessels such as Service Operations Vessels in the future is also worth consideration, the Carbon Trust said.The project is being led by BMT Defence and Security UK (BMT DAS) and Black & Veatch, commissioned by the Scottish Government and nine OWA industry partners – EnBW, EON, Iberdrola, Innogy, Ørsted, Shell, SSE, Equinor, and Vattenfall.last_img read more

Dinsmore dialed in for Ffrst Cotton Bowl win

first_imgBy J.M. HallasPAIGE, Texas (May 17) – Greg Dinsmore got back in the winner’s circle Saturday night at Cotton Bowl Speedway, the 3/8 mile, semi-banked, clay oval, just east of Austin. After recording a victory in his heat race, Dinsmore started outside the front row in the 20-lap IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified feature and led all 20 laps on his way to the checkered flag. The former Mountain Home and Pleasanton track champion took some time off to enjoy time with his family and focus on his business, Sundowner RV & Truck Repair. Dinsmore ran a very limited number of races, most of which were out-of-state, over the past two years and just recently began running the new Paig track. During his time off, Dinsmore picked up a new BMS Chassis that he has been learning while working out the new car blues. Saturday night he had everything go his way holding off the rest of the 19-car field, including former IMCA national champion and current track point leader Keith White. In a race slowed by three cautions, White caught Dinsmore briefly on the final yellow. The duo battled hard with Dinsmore keeping the top spot and he was able to keep White in his wake as he motored on to the win, in only his second race at the track. Saturday’s win followed up a strong run last weekend that was foiled by a flat tire while running second. “This is really an awesome facility,” said Dinsmore. “They’ve made some great strides since I ran a Late Model here before. The people and the quality of racers here are some of the best I’ve seen.”“I had a good lead until that final caution. Keith got around me on the restart after I hit a rut and pushed a bit,” he added. “I was able to outrun him on the back stretch to get the lead back. This car has a crazy amount of forward bite and made a lot of difference in getting the win.”last_img read more

Supergiant seal play-off berth

first_imgRISING Pune Supergiant dismissed Kings XI Punjab for just 73 as they sealed an Indian Premier League play-off berth.Kings XI Punjab slumped to their lowest-ever Indian Premier League total as they missed out on a play-off spot to the benefit of Rising Pune Supergiant, who claimed a nine-wicket win.Supergiant’s defeat to Delhi Daredevils in the last match made their final regular-season game with Kings XI, who went into the contest trailing Pune by just two points, into a de-facto play-off for the last top-four berth.Defeat for Supergiant, whose time in the competition will come to an end after this season, would have made Sunday’s meeting their final one in the IPL.But a dismal collapse from Kings XI left Supergiant needing just 74 to win, and they promptly chased down that scant total in just 12 overs, finishing second to set up a Qualifer 1 clash with Mumbai Indians, who topped the table.Kings XI got off to the worst possible start when they lost opener Martin Guptill for a first-ball duck, and they had only added 19 to the total by the time Shaun Marsh (10) holed out to Australia teammate Steve Smith.An excellent direct hit from man-of-the-match Jaydev Unadkat ran out Eoin Morgan for just two, and the sixth over proved a nightmare one for Kings XI as Shardul Takur accounted for both Rahul Tewatia (4) and Glenn Maxwell (0).Wriddhiman Saha (13) had been a rare constant for Kings XI but his stay came to an end when he nicked Dan Christian (2-10) to MS Dhoni.It was Christian who struck again to remove Axar Patel (22) – the only Kings XI batsman to top 20 runs – and the tail was quickly cleaned up by Unadkat (2-12) and Adam Zampa (2-22) – the visitors bowled out with 25 deliveries to spare.Rahul Tripathi was the only man to fall for Pune in their reply, losing his wicket after hitting 28 off 20. However, Ajinkya Rahane (34 not out) and Smith (15 not out) guided Supergiant home with ease. (Sportsmax)last_img read more

Filmmaker Lav Diaz discusses organic documentation

first_img“That’s the beauty of organic methodology where you don’t know anything, you’re just discovering things every day, you’re discovering things as you go along,” Diaz said. “It’s a very fluid thing.” Acclaimed Filipino filmmaker Lav Diaz followed a screening of his documentary “Storm Children, Book One” with a Q&A at the Albert and Dana Broccoli Theatre Monday night. The two-and-a-half-hour long film follows the daily lives of a group of children in Tacloban City months after Typhoon Yolanda, the largest and deadliest typhoon in the Philippines’ history.  “We have focused primarily on East Asia, which is China, Japan, Korea,” Ryu said. “But we do hope to expand to Southeast Asia and South Asia so this was a wonderful opportunity to bring a Southeast Asian filmmaker here to campus.” Lav Diaz’s latest film titled “Storm Children, Book One” documents the experiences of children from Tacloban City in the Philippines following the historic and destructive Typhoon Yolanda. (Mia Islas | Daily Trojan) The documentary subverts many expectations American audiences hold when walking into a theater. There is little dialogue and no underscoring; the film structure is simply a procession of tableaux, where the camera is at a fixed angle and rarely moves. One of the most touching moments is when two boys unearth a small ball from a pile of wreckage which audiences watch them dig through for a half hour.  “There’s this endlessly fascinating sequence in the film where the boys are unearthing things that clearly had been buried after the ravages of the storm,” Ago said. “And, quite frankly, it was almost hypnotic, just sort of following what they were doing there, especially when they actually start extracting things.”  The screening, which was moderated by Alex Ago, director of programing and special projects at the School of Cinematic Arts, was a collaboration between SCA, the American Cinematheque and the East Asian Studies Center. Grace Ryu, the associate director of the East Asian Studies Center, was familiar with Diaz’s work through streaming his other films and thought the screening was the perfect opportunity to expand the center’s programming. Diaz told the crowd about how he met the children at the focal point of the project and how he gained their permission to film them. “They just forgot about the storm, just forgot about the devastation,” Diaz said. “I was struck by their innocence and their beauty, so I started focusing on them.”  “We start very observational, but then as things progress, we start to actually see a little bit more of the filmmaker, because they’re speaking to [Diaz] directly,” Ago said. center_img “The first time that I went there, I noticed the kids,” Diaz said. “It’s really chaotic and at the same time it’s real, when that storm happened … So many people came, even Anderson Cooper was there, so it’s the whole world that’s coming. I was behind the scenes shooting them, and then I noticed the kids.” The majority of the footage showed children sifting through rubble in hopes of finding something of value or children playing in the flooded streets. This caught Diaz’s attention, as the children had returned to their normal activities while the adults were still immobilized by shock and grief.  Diaz is a stylistic filmmaker, known for his frequent use of black and white and his pioneering role in the slow cinema movement, with many of his films having a run time of around nine hours. While the runtime of this documentary is only a fraction of his typical work, he utilizes the same long, drawn-out shots he is famous for.  Diaz did not arrive in the Philippines with the intention of focusing his project on children, but the protagonists of his story became evident when he saw young people frequently ignored by  post-disaster mainstream media coverage.  Filmmaker Lav Diaz was struck by innocence and resilient nature of Tacloban City children in the Philippines. (Mia Islas | Daily Trojan) It is the juxtaposition of the horrific tragedy the community is struggling to heal from and the way the children maintain their playful attitudes that makes this an acclaimed documentary. In one shot, a group of young girls sings Frozen’s “Let It Go” as the camera focuses on a broken road filled with remnants of destroyed homes. The disaster zone is turned into a waterpark as children use broken roofs to raft down flooded streets and turn abandoned ships into diving boards. Despite the lack of narrative elements viewers expect, the documentary’s emotional resonance comes through the ceaseless daily activities that suck the audience in. Diaz said he had no expectation or narrative in mind when he arrived in Tacloban but rather allowed the real lives of the people recovering to tell the story.  “I just stayed there. I lived there for a month, and then they became my friends, they didn’t mind it at all. I said, ‘I’m going to shoot you guys and follow your lives.’”last_img read more

Defensive shift: SU must contain Daniels to get elusive win at USF

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 25, 2012 at 2:56 am Contact Ryne: [email protected] The Syracuse defense has transformed from one of the worst in the Big East to a swarming, formidable unit in a single season.It’s a transformation middle linebacker Siriki Diabate said started with the “little things.” He watched as players jogged from the sidelines to the huddle in 2011. Now, they’re all sprinting onto the field for each possession.“We’re worrying about the little things just enough,” Diabate said. “And making sure that when someone’s down, you’re picking up their tempo and making sure they’re rallying to the ball every time.”Diabate credits the SU coaching staff for the change in mentality that has the unit ranked third in the conference in total defense. Playing with that tenacity will be crucial when the Orange (3-4, 2-1 Big East) takes on B.J. Daniels and South Florida (2-5, 0-3) at 7 p.m. Saturday at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.The unit surrendered big plays and points in bunches to opponents in a forgettable 2011 campaign, but it is suddenly sparking the team to victories in 2012. The change has been on display in SU’s Big East victories over Pittsburgh and Connecticut, in which the unit held its opponents to 13 and 10 points, respectively.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange will look to continue that dominant play against a USF team that has given it fits during head coach Doug Marrone’s tenure. The struggles have stemmed from the play of the Bulls’ dual-threat quarterback Daniels, who has started in the last three matchups.“He’s been here as long as I’ve been here,” Marrone said during the Big East coaches’ teleconference on Monday. “He’s a very, very talented quarterback and the problem is when you try to contain him, he kind of really opens up things for other players on their offense.”In USF’s last two victories over SU, Daniels has been stellar, throwing for 462 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 149 yards and a score. But in 2010, the Orange defense stole the show, holding Daniels to zero yards rushing while forcing him to throw two interceptions.Daniels has been turnover-prone during his team’s five-game losing streak, throwing eight interceptions compared to seven touchdowns. Syracuse strong safety Shamarko Thomas said he and his teammates are looking to continue that trend on Saturday.“He’s a good quarterback, but he also has mistakes,” Thomas said. “He throws it in the air and that gives DBs opportunities, and to capitalize on turnovers is great because it gives the offense the opportunity to score.”But Thomas and his teammates also realize Daniels is still the same dynamic playmaker he’s been for three years. All they need to do is watch the film of last season’s 37-17 loss when Daniels ran all over the field for 117 yards.Defensive coordinator Scott Shafer said he was outcoached that day. Shafer reviewed the film during the offseason, and he’s watching more this week to make adjustments and prepare his defense.Diabate said it was tough to watch the defense struggle through the 20-point loss. And this year, Diabate said the coaches are stressing “rallying to the ball” on every play.The linebackers and secondary can’t get lost covering wide receivers downfield this time, Diabate said. They need to stay focused on Daniels and where he is on every play to prevent him from taking off for big gains.“He’s a freak athlete,” Thomas said. “He can make you miss on the ground, shake you so it’s contain him — blitz him and contain him and just make him throw it in the air and make plays off it.”And that starts with the defensive line, which has been the force behind impressive defensive play.Defensive end Markus Pierce-Brewster said the linemen feel the outcome of the game comes down to them. Their position coach, Tim Daoust, has repeated the mantra all season.When they do get Daniels moving in the pocket, Diabate and the rest of the defense need to finish the job.“We’re going to come out there on Saturday just with a great intention of stopping him every single play,” Diabate said, “and focusing on the little things and make sure when we do make a mistake, we have everyone rallying to the ball so it’s not so much as bad as last year.” Commentslast_img read more

first_imgArsene Wenger says Arsenal will face a stern test of their Premier League title credentials when they take on Liverpool on Wednesday.Wenger’s side head to Anfield two points clear at the head of the table and having won five of their last six league games.The weekend FA Cup third round victory over Sunderland extended their winning run and Wenger acknowledges his side’s recent success has strengthened the belief they can push on during the second half of the season.The Gunners manager, though, knows any meeting with Liverpool carries an extra edge that was demonstrated when the sides met on Merseyside last season, with the home side clinching a point thanks to Martin Skrtel’s stoppage-time equaliser.”The momentum creates confidence and confidence is vital at that level,” Wenger said.”In December and now in January we have been consistent and we go into a very important part of the season because we play many games. “Every time we go to Anfield, we face a team who is up for it. It’s always a ferocious battle, no matter who the manager is.”They had a very strong manager before, they have a very strong one now and Jurgen Klopp has the personality to do well there.”Wenger hopes to add Basle midfielder Mohamed Elneny to his squad this week.”I expect Mohamed yes, we are positive that this week it can happen,” he said.And his options will shortly be strengthened by the return to fitness of Alexis Sanchez, although the Chile striker will not make the trip to Liverpool. “We think he will be short for Wednesday,” said Wenger.”He has a chance to be available for Sunday against Stoke. He is always keen to play.”BIG CHALLENGELiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is looking forward rather than back as he prepares to take on Wenger in English football for the first time.The pair have previously met at Champions League level with honours almost even, Wenger enjoying three wins to Klopp’s two and a draw from his time in charge at Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. Klopp took over at Liverpool after the sides had drawn 0-0 at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League in August.And the German admits watching Wenger’s work at closer quarters has impressed him even more as the Liverpool boss prepares for huge back-to-back home games against the Gunners and Manchester United.”We shouldn’t talk too much about my experiences of playing against Arsenal. We will find a current plan for this game,” Klopp said.”It’s always a big challenge to play against clubs like Arsenal or Manchester United.”It’s a good challenge, not easy, but really interesting. We have to make good decisions in the right moment. We are looking forward to these games. “My respect for Arsene Wenger grows day by day. It’s really intensive to work in the Premier League and he’s done a brilliant job.”Klopp’s remarks regarding Wenger, looking to lead Arsenal to a fourth league title but first since 2004, reflect his initial impressions of managing in England.Klopp, who took over at Anfield in October, said that the number of fixtures has been the biggest difference to managing on the continent, with Liverpool facing the possibility of playing nine games in January.That workload is stretching a squad that has been badly hit by injuries, although Klopp hopes to have a number of key players back for the game on Wednesday when the eighth-placed Reds will be looking for a third win in four league games.After having no senior central defenders available for last Friday’s 2-2 FA Cup draw at Exeter, ex-Arsenal defender Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho are both expected to be fit. Captain Jordan Henderson is also set to return in midfield and winger Jordon Ibe is fit after hamstring trouble.–last_img read more

Manchester United vs. Barcelona tops Champions League quarterfinals

first_imgBarcelona and Manchester United will face each other in the pick of the Champions League quarterfinal matchups.United defied the odds in reaching the last eight, as it progressed past Paris Saint-Germain on away goals after a 3-3 aggregate draw despite losing the first leg at home, 2-0. If United is to get to the semifinals it will certainly have done so the hard way, as it is due to face LaLiga champion Barcelona and Lionel Messi in the quarterfinals.Ernesto Valverde’s men trounced Lyon, 5-1, on Wednesday — Messi starred with two goals and assists – to ease into the next round, having played out a goalless stalemate in France.Whoever progresses from the Barca-United repeat of the 2008-09 and 2010-11 finals will play the winner of Liverpool vs. Porto, who defeated Bayern Munich and Roma, respectively, in the round of 16.Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are among the favorites having gone all the way to the final last year before losing to Real Madrid.The quarter-final drawMost exciting tie? #UCLdraw— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) March 15, 2019Ajax impressively beat the defending champions, 5-3, owing much of that to a virtuoso display from Dusan Tadic in the 4-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu last week.Their reward is another major challenge, as they prepare to go up against Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo, who inspired their turnaround against Atletico Madrid — scoring a second-leg hat-trick to secure a 3-0 win as they battled back to progress 3-2.The other tie is an all-English affair, with Manchester City and Tottenham set to tussle for the right to play against Ajax or Juve in the last four.

NHL playoffs 2019: Islanders complete first playoff sweep since 1983 Stanley Cup clincher

first_imgOur #Isles STARS of game 4️⃣!⭐️ @RobinLehner⭐️⭐️ @jeberle_7⭐️⭐️⭐️ @Bnelson— x – New York Islanders (@NYIslanders) April 17, 2019“We have come a long way,” Islanders captain Anders Lee said postgame. “Obviously, nobody predicted this.”Forward Jake Guentzel set the tempo early, scoring the Penguins’ first goal just 35 seconds into the game. However, much like the rest of the series, the Islanders wasted no time in tying the game as Jordan Eberle scored 1:34 later to tie the game at 1-1.Eberle scored one goal in each of the series four games and his six points are the fourth-most in the postseason, trailing Mark Stone and Paul Stasny (eight) and Matt Duchene (seven).Jordan Eberle of the @NYIslanders is the third player in the last seven years to score in each of his team’s first four games of a postseason.The others to do so since 2012: Sean Monahan (w/ CGY in 2017 vs ANA) and Patrick Marleau (w/ SJS in 2013 vs VAN). #NHLStats #StanleyCup— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) April 17, 2019Later in the opening period, Brock Nelson tallied his third goal of the series, giving the Islanders a lead they would not relinquish. Josh Bailey added an empty-net insurance goal with 38 seconds left in the game to seal the win.The Islanders limited the Penguins to just six goals in series, a byproduct of goalie Robin Lehner’s solid play. Pittsburgh only got 6 pucks past @NYIslanders netminder @RobinLehner! #NHLTonight #StanleyCup— NHL Network (@NHLNetwork) April 17, 2019The series-clinching win was not without its setbacks as the Islanders lost a pair of defensemen to injury. Johnny Boychuk took a Marcus Pettersson slap shot off his left leg seven minutes into the second period. Cal Clutterbuck left the game later in the period after he checked Penguins winger Bryan Rust. Neither man returned to the game, forcing the Islanders to hang on to their lead in the third period shorthanded. For the first time since they clinched the 1983 Stanley Cup, the New York Islanders have swept a postseason series.New York defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 at PPG Paints Arena Tuesday night to continue their improbable run. Not expected to compete for a postseason spot this season — much less complete a sweep of the team that has won two of the last three Stanley Cups — the Islanders became the first team to sweep Pittsburgh out of the playoffs since the Blackhawks in 1972. Islanders head coach Barry Trotz could not provide an update on either player postgame. However, now that the Islanders have advanced, they will face either the Carolina Hurricanes or the Washington Capitals in the next round.If the Capitals can build on a 2-1 series and advance, that sets the stage for Trotz to coach against the team he led to the Stanley Cup last season.“I know Washington quite well,” Trotz said.last_img read more

Tommy Pham trade grades: Rays keep churning; Padres take step forward

first_imgUPDATE: The teams announced the trade Friday evening: Pham and Cronenworth from Tampa Bay to San Diego in exchange for Dozier, Edwards and a player to be named.UPDATE 2: Snell apologized to Edwards for calling him a name. Snell says he was upset that the Rays traded Pham and meant no disrespect toward Edwards. He will be joining a San Diego outfield group that includes Manuel Margot, Wil Myers, Franchy Cordero, Josh Naylor and Grisham. Expect Preller to explore deals involving part of that group at next week’s Winter Meetings in San Diego.Cronenworth, 25, moves this grade up slightly. His hitting took a leap last season at Triple-A Durham (a professional career-high 10 home runs and .949 OPS) and he also showed promise on the mound (two unearned runs allowed in seven appearances, primarily as an opener, covering 7 1/3 innings). The former University of Michigan closer did have trouble throwing strikes, however (eight walks).Overall: It’s always interesting with these teamsAs always, the Rays are trying to stay strong and save money. The Padres are spending more to become slightly better. The last big trade between the organizations, in December 2014, became known for the Nationals getting Trea Turner from the Padres as part of a complicated three-team swap. Five years later, it’s Edwards leaving the Padres’ organization, this time straight to the Rays. ORIGINAL ARTICLE:The Rays and Padres were nearing completion of a trade early Friday that would send outfielder Tommy Pham and two-way prospect Jake Cronenworth from Tampa Bay to San Diego in exchange for outfielder Hunter Renfroe, middle infield prospect Xavier Edwards and a second prospect or a player to be named, according to multiple reports.Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times (subscription required) reported that the teams will announce the trade later Friday after medical records are reviewed. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic first reported that a swap was close (subscription required).WINTER MEETINGS 2019: Dates, rumors, top FAs availableWhen completed, the trade will be San Diego’s third in 10 days. The Padres acquired infielder Jurickson Profar from the A’s in exchange for catcher Austin Allen and a player to be named on Dec. 2, and they acquired right-hander Kyle Davies and outfielder Trent Grisham from the Brewers on Nov. 27 in exchange for left-hander Eric Lauer, infielder Luis Urias and a player to be named.The Rays will be making their fourth trade of the offseason, with the previous biggest name being Jose De Leon.SN grades what has been reported about the Pham-Renfroe swap:Rays: B+The plus is for Edwards, a 20-year-old second baseman/shortstop who was No. 5 in MLB Pipeline’s ranking of Padres prospects. The knock on him appears to be a lack of power (just one home run in 756 minor league plate appearances), but he has shown early signs of a strong hit tool (.328/.395/.399 slash line in those PAs) and top speed (56 career steals). Rays left-hander Blake Snell, in his real-time reaction to the trade, sounded unimpressed by Edwards, whom he called a “slapd—” prospect. The Padres drafted Edwards 38th overall in 2018 out of a South Florida high school.Renfroe, 27, is four years younger than the 31-year-old Pham and has more raw power (a career-high 33 home runs in 2019). He also possesses one of the best outfield throwing arms in the game, something that would make him a fit in right field and allow Austin Meadows to take Pham’s place in left. On the flip side, Renfroe is far worse than Pham at getting on base (a .289 OBP in 2019 despite a career-high 46 walks). Topkin pointed out that Renfroe played with a bone spur in his right foot in the second half and had surgery in October.As is usually the case, Tampa Bay will be saving a lot of money with the trade. MLB Trade Rumors projects Renfroe will make $3.4 million next year in arbitration, far less than half of Pham’s $8.6 million arb projection. The Rays will also gain two extra years of control: Renfroe won’t be eligible to become a free agent until after the 2023 season; Pham can become a free agent after the 2021 season.Padres: BThe deal shows how serious general manager A.J. Preller is about trying to make the roster stronger in 2020.Pham slashed .273/.369/.450 (119 OPS+) with 21 home runs in 2019; that power output was in line with his previous two seasons (23 in 2017, 21 in 2018). He also adds speed to the offense (he tied a career high with 25 stolen bases last season), although Fangraphs’ calculations pegged him as a barely above-average baserunner. His corner defense (1 DRS in left field in 2019) should play OK at Petco Park.Pham will also add a fiery on-field persona, which should come in handy in games vs. the NL West-rival Dodgers and Giants.last_img read more

Tom Brady’s return to Patriots ‘not looking good,’ new rumors say, but does it matter at this point?

first_img (Getty Images) And yes, Brady’s agent Don Yee is in Indianapolis this week.Unless Brady and the Patriots come to some sort of agreement before March 16, the events of that 48-hour period before the official beginning of free agency likely will answer the question to which everybody wants the answer: Where will Brady play in 2020?Until then, the speculation and reporting war will continue. NFL free agency in 2020 is still three weeks away, but we all knew the rumor ​igniter that is the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis would give us some Tom Brady gossip as the greatest quarterback of all time prepares to hit the open market for the first time in his 20-year career.Whoever had Thursday, Feb. 27 as the day a flood of Brady-related hearsay would arrive, claim your prize. If Brady is not on the Patriots’ roster on March 18 at 4 p.m. ET, when the 2020 league year begins, the team will be hit with a $13.5 million dead cap charge (signing bonus acceleration). That number that will be cut in half if he re-signs, so New England will need an answer.The NFL’s legal tampering period for soon-to-be free agents is two days before the start of the league year, so if Brady wants to listen to other teams’ pitches (without visiting), that’s his first opportunity to do so within the league’s rules.”Within the league’s rules” is key, because as former NFL GM and current Sporting News contributor Jeff Diamond points out, the most important activities at the NFL Combine this week are taking place away from the cameras and spotlight.MORE: Explaining Patriots’ salary cap crunch”Lots of conversations — legal and illegal under NFL rules — between general managers with their contract/salary cap guys often in tow,” Diamond writes. “Conversations with agents for soon-to-be free agents and for players already signed but targeted for pay cuts or release. … The priorities for GMs are the agent chats in hotel rooms, bars, restaurants, coffee shops and skyways of Indianapolis — with greater privacy needed for the illegal discussions on other teams’ players who will soon hit the free-agency market.”Such negotiations on outside free agents are not supposed to take place until the legal tampering period. It is the NFL’s most absurd rule, as it is constantly broken by every team beginning long before the Combine. Things only escalate in Indy.” ESPN NFL reporter Jeff Darlington, appearing on the network’s morning show “Get Up” on Thursday, said he would be “stunned if Tom Brady returns to the Patriots,” adding that Brady has told people “very close” to him he is “going somewhere else.”MORE: Tracking the Tom Brady free agency rumorsJeff Darlington says Tom Brady has told people “very close” to him: “I’m going somewhere else.”Adds he’d be “stunned if Tom Brady returns to the Patriots.”— Jordan Heck (@JordanHeckFF) February 27, 2020Added The Boston Globe’s Karen Guregian on Thursday: “The Patriots still have not reached out to Tom Brady. According to a source, ‘it’s not looking good.'”And The Athletic’s Vic Tafur: “The strong buzz in Indy this week is that Tom Brady won’t return to the Patriots.”At this point, nobody should be surprised by the idea of Brady, 42, flirting with other teams in free agency. He renegotiated his contract so it would expire after 2019 for a reason, and speculation regarding his future began as soon as New England lost to Tennessee in the wild-card round of the playoffs. Yet the shocking nature of the scenario persists in part because Brady’s decision will have league-altering ripple effects.MORE: Tom Brady’s best fits in NFL free agencyThursday’s reports of Brady leaning away from the Patriots could be a leverage play on the part of the QB’s camp. (Although New England coach/general manager Bill Belichick doesn’t strike us as one who’s likely to fold under the pressure of whatever leverage Brady can create.)Also, that the Patriots reportedly haven’t reached out to Brady means nothing at this point. According to NFL Media, team owner Robert Kraft is comfortable letting Brady test free agency. “From what I understand,”’s Ian Rapoport reported, “Kraft’s thinking on this was basically, if the sides came together, if Brady decides that the Patriots were his best option after testing free agency, and if Bill Belichick — who of course is making the decisions for New England — if he decides that Brady is his best option at this price, then in the end after all of this after going through everything, that it will mean that it’s basically meant to be.”Added The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin on Thursday: “Belichick doesn’t see much sense in talking to Brady about a possible deal until he knows what the CBA situation will be.”So Thursday’s reports at this stage mean little. What we know for sure is legitimate answers to the questions about Brady’s future should be coming soon.last_img read more

Inaction by President Granger

first_imgDear Editor,A vote for David Granger and his coalition in 2015 was touted as a “vote for change” and indeed, there have been changes in the Administration of Government of Guyana. A major change has been the levelling of corruption charges based on evidence. Former President Bharrat Jagdeo has used the constitutional office of Leader of the Opposition to transform the previous culture of allegations based on innuendo or anecdote. When in office, the PPP/C often replied to allegations with requests for evidence. Given a chance to prosecute many of these claims made while in Opposition, the Granger Administration has fallen woefully short of credible. The sale of land for housing at less than market value at Sparendaam and a mix-up about the inclusion of the purchase of law reports in an employment contract speaks more to political witchhunts than serious corruption.We are now in the ear of evidence-based allegations, with files and complaints being filed at various law enforcement agencies, whistleblowers have emerged in every sector of the public service and from across the political spectrum to provide tangible proof of wrongdoing. Names, dates, documents, images, file numbers, specificity to the nth degree.As interesting as this phenomenon is, a pattern emerges after the response. Following allegations, there is a period of total silence which lasts for seven to seventeen days. During this period, the claims are pushed with vigour by media, corruption watchdogs and political activists. If the hue and cry dies down, we never get an explanation as with claims of verbal abuse of a constable by Annette Ferguson and the requested release of an unlicensed motorcycle rider in August 2018. However, when allegations do persist, the public is then treated to an ‘explanation’. These are not accompanied by policy documents, paper trails or any other exculpatory evidence. For example, the bizarre case of the payment of US$9000 into David Patterson’s personal account has not been attended by any paperwork. Patterson has repeatedly avoided explaining how a Chinese company got his personal bank account details; short of it being printed on the back of his business card, there is no plausible explanation, nor has Patterson provided paper evidence to demonstrate repatriation of the “travel expenses” to MARAD. Take my word for it, this is not an option preferred by taxpayers.There is also the denial of allegations based on specificity. Winston Jordan denied receiving a “US$20 million” signing bonus. His defence when the truth came out was a lame excuse that the actual bonus is “US$18 million”. Eric Philips denied receiving “3000 acres” of land. Now that the evidence has come to light of a grant of “2000 acres” with probable cause to believe there may be more revelations of additional acreages allocated, there is no doubt Phillips will rely on the ‘Jordan’ defence.There are other minor patterns that show the Granger Administration lacks moral and ethical direction from top to bottom; acceptance of paid travel and lack of policy directing courses of action.The clearest and most damming pattern is of the inaction by President Granger when faced with irrefutable evidence. His Excellency’s ability to turn his face from black and white realities is remarkable if only for its consistency. He is the rock upon which his corrupt Ministers stand, on drug bonds, on D’Urban Park, on the Harbour Bridge, on downsized but increased priced airport renovations, contracts for family and friends. More and more of the Cabinet clamber onto the safety of Granger’s rock, seemingly not noticing that it is sinking inexorably into the quicksand of corruption. We are into the silence again and David Granger is experiencing that sinking feeling, and his fear of facing the electorate is palpable.Respectfully,Robin Singhlast_img read more

NGO Coalition Reaffirms Commitment to VPA

first_imgMr. Samuel K.B. Kwennah: “The VPA is legally binding on timber-exporting countries outside the EU.”Members of the non-governmental organization (NGO) Coalition of Liberia yesterday, October 3, at a ceremony in Monrovia, reaffirmed its unflinching support and commitment to the Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) amid effort to stay the course of the process.The NGO Coalition of Liberia is a conglomeration of local non-governmental organizations working alongside government and international partners, to ensure the prudent management of Liberia’s natural resources, including its forests.The VPA between the European Union (EU) and the Liberian government is a legally binding trade agreement signed with timber-exporting countries outside the EU.It’s aim, according to the VPA management chair, Samuel K.B. Kwennah, is to ensure that all timber products destined for the EU market from a partner country such as Liberia comply with the laws of that country.Henceforth, the VPA is providing a much needed technical support to Liberia’s forestry sector.Coalition’s reaffirmation to the VPA comes in the wake of a revision of progress during the 6th Joint Implementation Committee (JIC) Forum held in June, 2018, which has resulted into the signing of an aide memoire based on noticeable lapses for the past five years (September 2013-September 2018).Mr. Kwennah said the need for commitment to this process is reviewed by an annual JIC forum and sealed by an aide memoire.In spite of completion and publication of the aide memoire, Coalition of Liberia believes that partners should recommit, engage and collaborate on the VPA, which aims to support the prudent management and fair distribution of revenues from natural resources.The JIC review this year initially ended in a deadlock on June 14, 2018, because the EU and the Liberian government failed to concur on certain key issues that were believed to be very crucial to the process.However, after a month-long debate (June 14 to July 10, 2018,) which led to clarification and declaration of positions at the level of the VPA, the aide memoire was finally signed on July 10.The Coalition, like other organizations, fully understands the challenges and constraints the pro-poor government is experiencing in terms of accessing funding for national development. On that account, the Coalition said it must acknowledge that it stands with the government in its drive to attract financial resources to carry out the much needed development.Kwennah said the Coalition believes such effort must not undermine ongoing reform process in forest governance by the EU and other international partners, which is intended to safeguard the remaining forests and empower community’s members on how to negotiate social agreements.The NGO Coalition of Liberia and its members implore the government to remain committed and ensure continuance of the VPA as it brings with it immense benefits and immeasurable impact that have been assessed so far.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe Court of Criminal Appeal has dismissed a Donegal man’s appeal against his conviction for sexually abusing three young girls in his daughter’s bed while they were on sleepovers at his house.Martin McCurdy, 45, was jailed for seven and a half years by Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy after being convicted of the abuse by a Central Criminal Court jury in October 2010.McCurdy’s name was added to the Sexual Offenders Register. McCurdy, of Emmet Park, Castlefinn, Co Donegal had pleaded not guilty to three counts of sexually assaulting the then 13-year-old girls on separate dates between February 2006 and January 2007 in his home.The Court heard that the girls were all abused in a similar fashion, and involved McCurdy making them perform a sexual act.Following his conviction, the girls waived their right to anonymity so McCurdy, who was not present in court yesterday, could be publicly named.He appealed his conviction on grounds including that the type of warning given Mr Justice McCarthy to the jury in relation to corroboration of the evidence given by the complainants rendered his conviction unsafe. The DPP opposed the appeal, and argued the conviction should not be disturbed.Today the three-judge CCA comprised of Mr Justice Adrian Hardiman, presiding, sitting with Mr Justice Michael Hanna, and Mr Justice Micheal White dismissed all grounds of McCurdy’s appeal.The CAA said it was satisfied the trial Judge did not err in his charge to the jury in relation to corroboration.Mr Justice McCarthy, the CCA said, had held the evidence of the complainants was capable of being corroborative of the other. However the Judge, the CCA added, had left it up to the jury to say whether it was or not.McCurdy’s appeal against sentence will be considered by the CCA at a future date.DONEGAL DAD WHO PREYED ON GIRLS DURING SLEEPOVERS LOSES APPEAL was last modified: July 28th, 2012 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)last_img read more

Dunfanaghy native scoops Teachers Inspire Ireland award

first_imgDunfanaghy native Nora Duffy was named as one of Ireland’s most inspiring teachers at the Teachers Inspire Ireland gala event at the Helix in Dublin City University (DCU) last night (Friday). Ms. Duffy moved from Donegal to teach at St. Joseph’s Co-Educational National School on the East Wall Road in Dublin in the 1960s.  At last night’s event, she scooped the Teachers Inspire Ireland Desmond Award for Leinster, fending off stiff competition from teachers across the province. The President of DCU, Professor Brian MacCraith; Dr. Anne Looney, Dean of DCU’s Institute of Education; and businessman and philanthropist Dermot Desmond, who generously supported the Teachers Inspire Ireland initiative, made the presentations to the awardees at a gala ceremony hosted by RTÉ broadcaster Miriam O’Callaghan.Speaking at the event, the President of DCU, Professor Brian MacCraith, said: “The motivation behind Teachers Inspire was to create a platform that would highlight the work of our exceptional teachers, and give them the validation and recognition they deserve. I am delighted to say that this idea has truly captured the public’s imagination. We have received hundreds of nominations and heard incredible stories of teachers who have gone above and beyond for their students and their communities.”  He continued: “The nominations highlighted teachers dealing with issues such as homelessness, mental health, immigration, unplanned pregnancies, gender identity support, community regeneration, and climate change.  They were submitted by schoolchildren, parents, and people whose school days are long behind them but who remember their teachers with great fondness and gratitude.“I congratulate Nora, and all the teachers recognised and celebrated at the gala event.  Their awards are hugely well deserved.”Dunfanaghy native scoops Teachers Inspire Ireland award was last modified: October 7th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Direct access to top cops’ numbers

first_imgRay Maota Police officers have been urged to retaintheir physique. National Commissioner of Police Bheki Celeand other top officials have given out theirmobile phone numbers as part of thepolice’s community safety initiative.(Images: Bongani Nkosi)MEDIA CONTACTS• Zweli MnisiChief Director: Communications/Spokesperson Ministry of Police+27 12 393 4341 / +27 21 467 7007South Africa’s National Police Commissioner General Bheki Cele has made it easier for South Africans to report crime by giving out his personal mobile phone number and encouraging other top officials to do the same.Cele announced his number at a recent community meeting in Soshanguve, north of Pretoria, and called on his colleagues present to follow his example.This was aimed at improving the public’s communication with police and promoting community safety.Zweli Mnisi, media liaison officer for the Ministry of Police, said: “We are in the process of printing out a national directory so all citizens will have access to the numbers of generals and other officials.”There have been talks of introducing a new nation-wide emergency number for crime reporting, but this idea has been put on hold to investigate alternative solutions.According to the Electronic Communications Act, 112 will be the new number to dial in case of a public emergency – and calls to it will be free from fixed lines and mobile phones. Operators will be able to direct the complaint to the local authorities where the call was made.The new number was proposed due to reported difficulties in reaching the police call centre on 10 111, which is the existing emergency line.In Soshanguve there have been complaints that calls to 10 111 are not being answered and there’s no follow up once a crime is reported to that number.Although there are problems with the 10 111 call centre, Mnisi said the number “is still effective in some cases”.“But there’s a combination of various issues. We’re constantly working on efficiency by training officers and making sure they’re equipped to deal with the calls – but sometimes there’s no passion and commitment from the police officers.”Mnisi added that the high incidence of prank calls to 10 111 also caused difficulties.John Moodey, Democratic Alliance leader in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature and deputy spokesperson on community safety, said a new nation-wide emergency number was a good idea.He added that “direct communication with police officers has also proven to be useful”.Moodey pointed out that there were, however, some drawbacks of using the 112 detail. “The number will work if you have a problem at your home or place of work in the area, but what happens when you’re travelling between two districts or are just not in your area?”Crime-reporting process forBy dialling 10 111, South Africans are put through to a 24-hour crime-reporting call centre.An operator takes down all the details from the caller and a reference number is given to the person as proof of having called. All conversations are recorded for accountability.A vehicle from the nearest police station is then dispatched to the scene. The Flying Squad is called in to respond to high-priority cases that need to be reached quickly.Calls to the centre are free from a fixed line, but are charged at regular mobile phone rates when the latter is used.“An internal review of the performance of 10 111 has been done. Part of the issue is that call centre agents don’t know how to appropriately classify the cases being reported, so we are refining our recruitment,” Mnisi said.No-nonsense approachGeneral Bheki Cele was appointed police commissioner in July 2009, replacing Jackie Selebi.He soon became known for his no-nonsense approach to crime and declaring war on criminals.He was previously the MEC for Transport, Safety and Security in KwaZulu-Natal.Since his appointment, Cele has emphasised the need for police officers to be fit and in shape to fight crime effectively. He’s also vowed to fight corruption within the ranks of the police.“If you are wearing a size 32 uniform today, it must stay that way for the next seven years – don’t come back in two years time and ask for a size 34,” he said.last_img read more

Warp Your Reality With Dutch Angles

first_imgUsed since the early days of cinema, Dutch angles are a great artistic tool for filmmakers.You’ve seen them before, those slanted or tilted perspectives in film. They signify to the audience that the world of the characters is warped and unnatural. Many filmmakers have used this technique, primarily known as the Dutch angle. (Though it’s also been referred to as the oblique or German angle.)No matter what you call it, its value to filmmakers is the same, as it’s an asset to be used wisely in visual storytelling. With this said, let’s take a look at the history of Dutch angles in film and get a better understanding of where and how this technique came into being.To begin, lets take a look at the varying degrees used for Dutch angles. This video from Fandor Keyframe gives us a quick rundown from a long history of films and their use of the cinematic technique.When Did the Warped World Start?The Dutch angle began with the 1920 film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and then again with Vertov’s Man With a Movie Camera in 1929. Both films use the oblique angle to convey at warped sense of reality. From this point on, the Dutch angle has been used extensively in film. Countless filmmakers have used the technique with great effect over the years.Dutch angles can’t be used everywhere, but for some genres of film like thrillers, mystery, and horror, these angles can really play exceptionally well. For one example of this lets look at this scene from Mission Impossible, where the main character Ethan Hunt realizes his world isn’t what it appears to be.Video from MovieclipsTerry Gilliam is a huge fan of the Dutch angle and he has used it extensively throughout his film career. But possibly his best use of Dutch angles came in his 1995 film 12 Monkeys, where the technique was used to convey to the audience that Bruce Willis’s world is skewed.Video from MovieclipsAnother great use of the Dutch angle with in Spike Lee’s film Do The Right Thing. In this film, Lee uses the Dutch angle to heighten the tension of the confrontation between Sal and Radio Raheem. When the clip starts, we see that framing is level and traditional, but then as Radio Raheem enters the restaurant with Buggin’ Out, we see the perspective change. This signals to the audience that a confrontation that has been building will finally go down.Video from MovieclipsOne last example of the Dutch angle comes from Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. After a long and arduous journey, Frodo is hanging from the ledge of Mount Doom as Sam reaches out his hand. Peter uses the Dutch angle here to represent the One Ring’s hold on Frodo, as we see the Ring floating on the surface of the lava, calling out to Frodo to let go and face his demise.Video from MovieclipsNow We’ve Gone Too Far!While Dutch angles are a great asset for visual storytelling, they can be overused. Unfortunately we’ve seen this overuse a few times in the last decade or so. But we don’t think anyone has quite used the Dutch angle as much as Kenneth Branagh did for 2011’s Thor.There were so many Dutch angles in Thor that LeftJet was able to make a two and a half minute video consisting of nothing but the Dutch angles from the film. So as we leave you, enjoy this Yakety Sax-driven montage.Remember to Always Use Dutch Angles Responsibly.What are some of your favorite Dutch angle scenes? Do you use Dutch angles in your work? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.last_img read more

Mets Gee-Whiz Braves, 3-2

first_imgNEW YORK — The most comforting sight for New York Mets pitchers is Juan Lagares galloping around the outfield.Lagares hit a two-run homer and ran down one ball after another in center, sending Dillon Gee and the Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Aug. 26.Gee stopped the longest losing streak of his career at five games, outpitching Alex Wood in the opener of a three-game series. Lagares, one of the best defensive outfielders in baseball, scurried from gap to gap and finished with seven putouts.“That’s Lagares, man,” Gee said. “We expect that from him now. Unbelievable center fielder. Makes great plays. … I’d be hard-pressed to find anybody better. He’s unbelievable. He’s fun to watch.”One of Lagares’ grabs was spectacular — he robbed Wood of a base hit with a diving, tumbling grab in shallow center to end the third inning. Lagares also began the game by running a long way to track down consecutive fly balls, and he made all three putouts in the sixth.“I’ll tell you what: Everybody’s impressed — I’m not. I’ve been playing with him since ’09. I know what he can do,” New York infielder Wilmer Flores said. “Any pitcher would want him in center field.”With the Mets minus ailing David Wright and Daniel Murphy, it was Lagares who carried the load on this night. So he was asked if he was happier about his performance at the plate or in the field? “I think I liked both,” Lagares said with a grin.Right in the thick of a crowded NL wild-card race, the Braves have totaled only five runs while dropping three straight after a 7-1 stretch.Streaking slugger Justin Upton went 3-for-3 with an RBI double and a walk. “He’s really swinging the bat really well. We’ve got to get some people on in front of him,” Manager Fredi Gonzalez said.Backed by three double plays, a clean-shaven Gee (5-6) gave up two runs and six hits in 6 2-3 innings. He entered 0-5 with a 5.71 ERA in seven starts since beating the Braves 4-1 on July 9 in his first outing after nearly two months on the disabled list with a strained right lat.New York turned four double plays in all. “It just killed us, really,” Gonzalez said.Gee was lifted after Tommy La Stella’s run-scoring single made it 3-2. Jeurys Familia got four outs, and Jenrry Mejia pitched a one-hit ninth for his 19th save in 22 tries.Mejia leaped off the mound with both arms raised after throwing a called third strike past Evan Gattis to end it.Wood (9-10) retired his final 12 batters after Lagares’ homer in the fourth. The left-hander struck out six and walked one in seven innings. He yielded two earned runs or fewer in each of his previous five starts.Ruben Tejada hit an RBI single in the second, two batters after Lagares singled. Atlanta tied it on consecutive doubles by Freddie Freeman and Upton with two outs in the fourth.Travis d’Arnaud doubled to open the bottom half and Lagares drove Wood’s full-count changeup to left field for his fourth home run — his second in three games after going more than three months without one.“It was just a really bad pitch to that guy,” Wood said.(MIKE FITZPATRICK, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Real Madrid stars admit: We need Ronaldo

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo ‘We need Cristiano’ – Real Madrid stars on goalscoring struggles without Ronaldo Last updated 2 years ago 16:09 10/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(38) Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Denis Doyle Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Primera División The reigning La Liga champions have lacked firepower while their talismanic forward serves a ban and are looking forward to welcoming him back Real Madrid players are lining up to concede how much they rely upon Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals following Saturday’s draw with Levante.The reigning La Liga champions are currently unable to call upon the services of their talismanic forward as he serves a five-match ban for collecting a red card and shoving the referee during a Super Cup clash with Barcelona in August.Madrid 5/1 to beat APOEL 4-0 Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Ronaldo still has one game left on that suspension, meaning that he will sit out a trip to Real Sociedad on September 17.That could spell further bad news for Zinedine Zidane’s side, who have collected just one victory from their opening three league games this season – with a 1-1 draw at home to Levante seeing them drop vital points as they once again failed to spark in the final third.Theo Hernandez told reporters after that contest: “We tried hard throughout and our intensity was there as always but we just couldn’t make the most of our chances.”Maybe we did lack a little spark but we gave everything. We do need Cristiano to score goals but we don’t necessarily need a No. 9. The squad will continue as it is.”Marcos Llorente added: “This wasn’t the kind of game we were expecting but what would be most worrying for us would be if we didn’t create many chances.”These things happen and we must keep working. It is clear that in this team, he [Ronaldo] is very important and has an ability to score incredible goals.”It would have been good to have him but those who did play tried their best throughout.”With Ronaldo missing, Zidane started with Lucas, Marco Asensio and Marcelo supporting frontman Karim Benzema.The Frenchman was, however, to limp out of the action after 28 minutes, with Gareth Bale failing to provide inspiration when replacing him off the bench.Madrid’s lack of striking options is now being exposed, with the club having opted against bringing in a replacement for Alvaro Morata this summer after offloading the Spain international to Chelsea for £70 million.Ronaldo’s return will be key to their efforts this season, with the club’s all-time leading goalscorer having netted 407 times in 396 appearances to date.last_img read more

Summer Trekking: Fjallraven

first_imgThis summer it’s time to step up your trekking and travel game. Rather than shop the bargain racks at your local REI for a tired pair of baggy hiking pants and tech t-shirt, it’s time to graduate to high quality apparel that will last on the trail as long as you will. Fjallraven’s spring and summer line this year is inspired by the brand’s Swedish heritage, and will easily perform on the trails and water, while setting you apart from the typical hiking shirts and yoga pants crowd.Related: The Best Hiking Shirts | Feit Wool HikerKeb Gaiter Trousers ($225)Fjallraven’s signature G-1000 material reinforces the Keb Gaiter Trousers in key places like the knees and instep, making them ultra durable. This new version of the award winning Keb features a zip-off conversion into shorts. You can keep the lower portion on your legs with a drawstring closure and boot hook to protect your legs when walking through high brush or scrambling up steep rock. Stretch panels through the inner thigh, seat, and back of the knees provide breathability and comfort when temperatures climb. If you’re looking for a hiking pant that departs from the typical cheap technical fabric and cookie-cutter design, the Kebs provide the best option for the design conscious trekker who deserves the very best.Kanken Backpack ($75)The Kanken series of backpacks has been around since 1978. In the nearly forty years that they have been in production, they’ve gone from being a simple school bag for Swedish children to a global icon. Made from Fjallraven’s Vinylon polypropylene fabric, the Kanken excels at shedding moisture. The simple design provides everything you need to a light day hiking load, and new variants built for urban commuters will organize all your portable electronics when you’re on the road.High Coast Wind Anorak ($180)Anorak style jackets may have fallen out of favor here in the US, but the pull-over design is alive and well. The High Coast is a perfect summer layering piece, combining soft organic cotton with a polyamide blend. It is wind resistant, and like the G-1000 canvas of the Kebs, is waxed for water resistance and quick drying. The kangaroo pouch in the front doubles as a pack bag, helping you keep it organized when stashed in a day pack. It is perfect for early morning hikes and late evenings on the water fishing or paddling.Abisko Vent Shirt ($110)The Abisko line is designed around hybrid fabrics and light weight trekking. The vent shirt is our favorite of the apparel collection, especially for long days when it pulls office duty in the morning, and helps us sneak away for an afternoon fly fishing session and bar crawl afterward. The light fabric is complemented by a vented yoke and mesh gusseting under the arms, helping dump heat when you’re on the trail. The button-down collar and chest pockets recall simple safari and photographer shirts, with updated styling for the modern adventurer.

Residents of Whitehall Get Titles

first_imgMONTEGO BAY – Residents, who occupy housing lots in the Whitehall phase one housing development in Westmoreland, were presented with their titles on Friday (Nov. 23), by Minister with responsibility for Housing, Hon. Dr. Morais Guy. More than 500 lots are available in the development, which was originally earmarked for hotel workers in the 1980’s.  The Government started the project under Operation PRIDE in the early 1990’s, and has decided to hand over the titles to owners for nominal fees ranging from $25,000 to $300,000. Minister Guy, in addressing the title handing over ceremony held at the Whitehall Early Childhood Institution, said he was pleased with the project. “I am impressed with the level of work being done. What I see at Whitehall is something that every recipient here, and those who are not here, ought to be proud off. It is a wonderful development,” he stated. He challenged the residents to take charge of the community. “Let us be the ones in charge and not others. I am talking about the criminals creeping in and taking charge. At the end, let us have a community that everyone can be proud of,” he urged. The Minister said he has mandated the Housing Agency of Jamaica (HAJ) to institute a competition among the various Operation Pride housing schemes, aimed at fostering civic pride. Such as competition, he argued, could encourage residents to always work to keep their communities in top shape, while they vie for prizes. “Let us see, of these communities, which one can vie for a prize from the Housing Agency of Jamaica, because, what we are talking about is not only national development, but personal and civic development as well,” he stated. The Whitehall development is a three phase project, with more than 2,000 houses to be provided at the end of the undertaking.  A total of 512 housing lots are available in phase 1, while 24 lots are earmarked for commercial activities. Member of Parliament for Western Westmoreland, Dr. Wykeham McNeil, who is also Minister of Tourism and Entertainment, informed that funding is now in place for the completion of the playfield, and community centre.last_img read more

Canadian Judicial Council launches inquiry in conduct of Quebec Superior Court justice

first_imgMONTREAL — The Canadian Judicial Council says it will launch a public inquiry into the alleged conduct of a Quebec Superior Court judge.A five-member judicial conduct review panel looked at two separate allegations against Justice Gerard Dugre and decided they warranted an inquiry.In both instances, the allegations are not proven.One allegation involves a lengthy delay in rendering a decision in a divorce and family-related matter, rendered in late November 2018, more than nine months after the judge took the case under deliberation.The council says this was not the first allegation of a tardy decision, and it could demonstrate a pattern.The other allegation involves intemperate and inappropriate language stemming during a family law hearing in September 2018.“The allegations were that the judge was discourteous and the review panel found indeed the judge was intimidating, he was sometimes threatening and he did not let the parties provide their views, he did not let them make their arguments appropriately,” the council’s executive director, Norman Sabourin, said.The panel reviewed the matter and spoke with the judge and the chief justice of the Quebec Superior Court before concluding it might be serious enough to warrant the removal of the judge if found to be valid.The next step will involve creating an inquiry committee and the federal justice minister can appoint members of the bar to sit on the committee, Sabourin said.The council is responsible for investigating allegations against federally appointed judges.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Ohio State womens basketball holds on for 9793 win at Michigan

OSU sophomore guard Kelsey Mitchell (3) drives to the hoop while Purdue freshman guard Tiara Murphy (3) drives to slow her down in a game on Jan. 17 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 90-70. Credit: Kevin Stankiewicz | Asst. Photo EditorBeing questioned as one of the nation’s true elite teams for its paltry 2-3 record on the road before Thursday, No. 7 Ohio State came into Ann Arbor, Michigan, wanting to prove to the country, the conference and more importantly, itself that it can play as well away as it can in Columbus.While it wasn’t an entirely convincing performance, the Buckeyes (14-4, 6-1) were able to overpower Michigan (11-7, 3-4) 97-93 behind a very efficient 27 points from sophomore guard Kelsey Mitchell.The game belonged to the Buckeyes at the beginning. Coach Kevin McGuff incorporated a full-court press to the Scarlet and Gray’s defensive scheme, which helped force a total of 18 turnovers that led to easy baskets.In the first quarter, along with having problems against the press, Michigan was unable to produce strong defensive possessions. When the high-scoring Buckeyes were able to move the ball around, they had no trouble finding open looks.The Wolverines woke up in the second quarter, making smarter decisions and slowing down OSU. Senior forward Kelsey Mitchell — of no relation to OSU’s Kelsey Mitchell — dropping 12 points in the first half fueled their offense.Michigan was able to keep the Buckeyes from making a shot for nearly four minutes, propelling the Wolverines to a scoring run. Once the Wolverines were able to produce on offense, they were able to focus and decrease the deficit to seven points going into the locker room.The Buckeyes first-half scoring was led by their typical leader, Mitchell, who was on fire and dropped 20 points with a slew of 3-pointers. Although the sophomore was the overall leader, OSU had five players that surpassed double-figure scoring, showcasing the depth of its roster.Michigan continued to battle in the second half, but the Buckeyes weren’t planning on letting another road game slip away. Each time the Wolverines began to cut down the lead, OSU would turn around and come right back with its attack.When Michigan began to shut down OSU’s Mitchell, OSU junior forward Shayla Cooper picked up the scoring load. Cooper attributed her fifth double-double of the season, the 12th of her career, and finished with 25 points and 13 rebounds. Nineteen of those points Cooper scored came in the second half. The two rivals went back and forth throughout the third and fourth quarters, exemplifying strong defense and sinking shots from all over. When the final buzzer went off, the Buckeyes were the ones celebrating the victory. Only winning by four, it might have been a little too close for comfort for McGuff and OSU, but it stood as a solid win on the road nonetheless.Along with Mitchell’s and Cooper’s strong performances, senior guard Ameryst Alston and sophomore guard Asia Doss each netted 15 points, and sophomore forward Alexa Hart chipped in 10.Sharpshooting sophomore guard Katelynn Flaherty was the top scorer for the Wolverines, netting five of eight attempts from downtown and tallying 22 points.The Wolverines received a hefty contribution from another underclassman in freshman center Hallie Thome, joining Cooper in the double-double club. Thome piled up 22 points and 12 rebounds on the night.With the win, the Buckeyes are tied for first in the Big Ten with the No. 5 Maryland Terrapins. They are set to continue their road trip Sunday at Rutgers, with tip-off set for 3 p.m. read more

The Thunder May Have Just Discovered an Amazing New Lineup

In the third quarter of Oklahoma City’s Thursday night win over Los Angeles, Thunder coach Scott Brooks, long maligned for doing the same old thing, discovered something new: a lineup of Nick Collison, Steven Adams, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson could bend the court to its will.The group had rarely played together before — just six minutes during the regular season and just seven minutes in the playoffs. But that didn’t seem to be a problem. Over the next 15 minutes of play Thursday night, they scored 42 points and allowed just 24 points on 41 percent shooting, turning a 7-point deficit into an 11-point lead. Extrapolated to a 100-possession pace, the lineup’s point differential was +64.3.Small sample size, of course, but whoa, what a sample. The Thunder’s most-played lineup in the regular season (with Jackson in place of an injured Westbrook) had a per-100-possession point differential of +5.8. If we look at just the Thunder’s most frequently used front-court pairing, Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka, we find a per-100-possession point differential of just +2.0.Something about the fresh lineup on Thursday spaced the floor for Durant to do his best work of the night, scoring 13 points on just six shots. Neither Collison nor Adams is a particularly dangerous offensive player, but they are both good offensive rebounders. When they were on the floor together for 494 minutes in the regular season, the Thunder rebounded 33.4 percent of their own misses, compared to 26.5 across the whole season. Collison and Adams can also set screens and roll hard to the basket, allowing the Thunder to spread the defense even without a great perimeter-shooting big guy on the floor.Durant has played just a small percentage of his minutes with a Collison-Adams front-court pairing this season, but he’s been remarkably effective when he does, netting his highest true shooting percentage.Front Court Combinations Playing With DurantIt’s hard to suss out whether playing this group together  was a shrewd and intentional move by Brooks, or whether he stumbled upon the lineup after Ibaka’s calf injury. But it’s an important development as the Thunder get ready for the San Antonio Spurs. Going into Thursday night’s game, seven of the Thunder’s 10 most-used lineups in the playoffs had a positive point differential. With the emphatic arrival of this group, it’s now eight of 10.Lineups matter especially for the Thunder, a team whose starting five tend to start slowly. That group finished the series with a negative first-quarter point differential and was outscored to begin four of the six games in the series. Inserting Collison and Adams into the starting lineup is probably not the solution to those slow starts, but the Spurs are waiting with a deep and versatile matchup nightmare. Every opportunity Brooks has to experiment with a seldom-used but potentially explosive lineup gives him more options to handle the varied scenarios the Spurs will throw at the Thunder. read more

Dont call it a homecoming for Nebraskas Bo Pelini

During Ohio State’s annual Homecoming football game Saturday, many OSU alumni will be back in Columbus to cheer on their Buckeyes. One alumnus, however, will be representing the Buckeyes’ opponent. That alumnus is Bo Pelini, the coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, who will be playing the Buckeyes in Ohio Stadium at 8 p.m. Saturday. Pelini, who played free safety at OSU from 1987-90, will be going against his alma mater in Columbus for the first time in his head coaching career. Pelini said his history at OSU will not affect him on Saturday. “I have pride in where I went to school and my career there. But that has nothing to do with Saturday,” Pelini said in Nebraska’s press conference Monday. “I’m in a different time in my life and a different place. I have a job to do and that’s all I’m concerned with.” As for the game itself, the No. 21 Cornhuskers (4-1) will be hoping to upset the No. 12 Buckeyes for their first loss of the season. Pelini acknowledged that the game will not be easy. “We know we’re going to have to play our best football on Saturday,” Pelini said during the Big Ten coaches’ teleconference on Tuesday. “We’re playing a really good football team.” Cornhuskers senior running back Rex Burkhead said the physical play of OSU’s defense stood out in the Buckeyes’ win against Michigan State. “I saw they were getting a big push on the offensive line. They were making it tough to make reads in the backfield and have lanes open up,” Burkhead said during Nebraska’s press conference. “I think penetration was the key thing they were getting.” As for the Buckeyes’ offense, Pelini said “we’ll see on Saturday” whether his defense is able to match up with OSU sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller and the Buckeyes’ offense. “Braxton Miller does a really good job,” Pelini said. “He’s a real threat to run, pass, they do a lot of different things to feature him. It puts a lot of stress on you.” Pelini added that while Miller might stand out, he is not the sole reason for the Buckeyes’ offensive success. “Everyone, and deservedly so, gives a lot of credit to Braxton Miller, but they, first and foremost, they do a lot of good things to enable him to make plays and they have a lot of good pieces around him,” Pelini said. “He’s not out there playing by himself. It’s a team game.” OSU coach Urban Meyer said the game will be a challenge, and that the team will have to make some changes to win this game. “We’re going to have to do some things that we haven’t done, and I’m not sure how we’ll adapt to that,” Meyer said. “I’m glad it’s (at) home.” Meyer knows the coach on the other side well: Meyer was a graduate assistant with the Buckeyes in 1987, Pelini’s freshman season. Meyer said he had a lot of respect for Pelini as a player, and that he has not changed much as a coach. “I have a really good relationship with Bo,” Meyer said. “(As a player, he was) just a real tough guy, just like his personality is now.” Pelini, who knows first-hand what it’s like to play inside Ohio Stadium, said it will be a “great environment” on Saturday. Cornhuskers senior safety P.J. Smith expressed his excitement to play in the Horseshoe during Nebraska’s press conference but added that his team must keep its “emotions normal.” “It is going to be crazy, it is going to be wild, but it will be fun,” Smith said. “We just got to go out there and execute the game plan.” The Buckeyes, who have won their first five games of the season, will be trying to avenge their loss to the Cornhuskers from their first-ever matchup as Big Ten opponents last season. In that game, the Buckeyes held a 27-6 lead in the third quarter, but gave up 28 unanswered points to lose 34-27. read more

The Lake District is named a Unesco World Heritage Site

first_imgA whitewashed farmhouse reflected in the still waters of Loughrigg Tarn in the central Lake District John Glen, minister for arts, heritage and tourism, said: “The Lake District is one of the UK’s most stunning and ancient landscapes and I am thrilled it has been granted World Heritage Site status.”It is a unique part of the world that combines a vibrant farming community with thousands of archaeological sites and structures that give us an amazing glimpse into our past.”This decision will undoubtedly elevate the position of the Lake District internationally, boosting tourism and benefiting local communities and businesses.” The Lake District has provided inspiration for some of the country’s best-loved writers including Beatrix Potter, William Wordsworth and Samuel Coleridge.It boasts sites of historical importance such as King Arthur’s Round Table and is home to England’s largest natural lake – Windermere – and highest mountain – Scafell Pike.It is the 31st place in the UK to make the list, following in the footsteps of Stonehenge, the city of Bath and Canterbury Cathedral. The Lakes, which is visited by 18 million people every year, was one of 33 sites around the world to be considered by the Unesco committee in Krakow, Poland, and was praised for its beauty, farming and the inspiration it has provided to artists and writers.The committee suggested the impact of tourism be monitored and requested improvements in conservation efforts.It was the 885 sq-mile region’s third attempt to be awarded the status and was 30 years in the making.The first nomination was as a “mixed” site of natural and cultural merits in 1986, and the second, in the cultural category, was made in the 1989.

Families facing tough times children fishing in drains …Ram says in

Christopher RamOutspoken political commentator and Charted Accountant Christopher Ram has described some of the harrowing tales that have resulted from the closures of several estates across country which came via Government’s downsizing of the sugar industry owing the billions of dollars in subsidised allocations.Ram opined that the current Administration should have implemented the industry’s overhaul in a phased manner as opposed to the four closures within one year.Wales was officially closed in December 2016 and the closures of East Demerara (Enmore), Skeldon and Rose Hall were finalised by December 2017 although the latter three were reopened under limited operations via the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited’s (NICIL) Special Purpose Unit (SPU).Since then, Ram has been facilitating a donation drive to the children of ex-workers of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo). The items have included bicycles, haversacks and stationery supplies. From his vantage point, the accountant imparted that the closures have facilitated social ills owing the fact the inhabitants of the various communities built their lives from their earnings in the sugar industry.“The people need employment; they need support and it seems that they’re almost forgotten and its cynical, it’s callous and it’s cruel. The problem in those areas is that they’re almost single industry communities which have been built for decades and decades around sugar and you can’t take away their lifeline, the very essence of the community and think that you have solved the problem and you’ve created some extremely costly social problems,” he observed.Ram also pointed out a disturbing scene whereby he saw persons fishing in nearby drains during one of his many visits and it was explained that this was for their sustenance.Speaking from a fiscal perspective, Ram pondered why the country’s budget deficit is higher in spite of the rationalisation objectives. He added that there was “no question” that some realignment was necessary in the sugar industry but said it not only should have been phased but well planned.“What we have is chaos, confusion and misdirection, particularly led by NICIL which has only added to the confusion,” he said.Ram outlined that based on the information he obtained, some of the children are inclined to miss classes as they lack school uniforms and lack basic meals. “Teachers are pooling money to give a meal to children. That child is a human being who is going to grow into an adult and what is he or she going to do?” he asked.Prior to the closures, observers including the political Opposition were calling for social impact studies to be conducted beforehand. Now that Government went ahead with its cost-cutting measures, many of the workers have held out that they are finding great difficulty in attaining well-paying and consistent employment. Some are of the view that these communities should be allocated subsidies for travel, text books, electricity and water owing to the vacuum that came to the fore when the industry was slashed.More than that, workers at Wales, were waiting almost two years for their severance pay due to their refusal to take up work at the Uitvlugt Estate which is 22 miles away from their homes. Though they were finally paid this month with interest, many parents said that in the interim they could not have afforded to send their children to school on a consistent basis.

Pollution le périphérique parisien limité à 70 kmh

first_imgPollution : le périphérique parisien limité à 70 km/h ?Mardi, le Conseil de Paris a adopté un voeu visant à réduire de 10km/h la vitesse maximale autorisée sur le périphérique parisien. Afin de limiter la pollution, le bruit, et de renforcer la sécurité, cette vitesse pourrait prochainement passer à 70km/h.Jusqu’alors limitée à 80km/h, la vitesse maximale autorisée sur le périphérique parisien pourrait passer à 70km/h. Tel est du moins le voeu adopté hier par le Conseil de Paris afin de réduire les pollutions atmosphériques et sonores, et de lutter contre l’insécurité routière, rapporte le site du Parisien. Dans ce voeu, la ville demande à la préfecture de police de mettre en place une expérimentation de cette réduction de 10km/h. En outre, les élus souhaitent que la vitesse soit encore plus limitée la nuit, entre minuit et six heures. À lire aussiRéchauffement climatique : les émissions de CO2 connaissent leur plus forte hausse en 7 ans”D’après Bruitparif, passer de 80 km/h à 70 km/h permet de réduire le bruit de 1 décibel (dB)”, assure Denis Baupin, l’adjoint au maire chargé du développement durable. Une réduction qui peut sembler minime, mais qui représenterait une vraie avancée, estime l’élu écologiste. “Réduire de 3 dB, c’est une division du bruit par 2, donc 1 dB en moins ce sera 20% de nuisances en moins”, explique-t-il en effet. Afin de lutter contre la pollution sonore, la mairie travaille sur un autre projet. Dès cet été, la ville équipera d’un bitume censé absorber le bruit trois zones du périphérique : Châtillon-Plaine, Maillot-Ternes et Bagnolet-Vincennes, précise le Parisien. Une expérimentation dont le bilan sera dressé d’ici à la fin de l’année.Le 13 juillet 2011 à 09:16 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Costa Rica police seize 170 wild animals from German tourists luggage

first_imgUpdate: A more thorough revision of the animals by the National System of Conservation Areas (SINAC) put the final count of animals at 235 adults and 203 tadpoles. Of the adult animals 184 were frogs, 42 were lizards and 9 were snakes. SINAC also corrected the name of the arrested man. Police previously reported that his last name was Maciej.Original story (with name correction) continues below:San José’s Juan Santamaría International Airport is often busy, but it became a zoo on Tuesday when police discovered 170 live animals in the luggage of a passenger headed to Panama.According to police, the 31-year-old German Maciej Oksrora was behaving suspiciously before his check-in at the airport, prompting airport officials to search his bags. Inside, they found frogs, snakes and lizards concealed in plastic bags and take-out food containers. Maciej put lettuce leaves in each of the containers presumably to feed his collection of hungry reptiles and amphibians. The suspect failed to present proper paperwork to transport the animals and was arrested. According to Costa Rican law, Maciej faces fines up to 40 times a monthly salary, or one to three years in prison.He was turned over to the local prosecutor’s office, where the investigation continues. The 31-year-old German planned to check the luggage containing the creatures.

land minerals natural gas and airwaves The lesson to be drawn from the UPA’s scandals is that relying on the discretion of politicians bureaucrats and expert committees leads to ignorant guesswork at best and corruption at worst The best way to put a price on a scarce resource is through transparent and competitive bidding among its many claimants Unfortunately we refuse to extend this lesson to

revealed any fresh findings and its investigation into the case is over (File) Related News The CBI has informed the Bombay High Court that further probe into alleged proxy flats in the scam-tainted Adarsh Housing Society has not revealed any fresh findings and its investigation into the case is over The agency last week informed a division bench of Justices R V More and Sadhana Jadhav that it has submitted a report in a sealed cover to another bench of the HC The division bench headed by Justices More is hearing a petition filed by Congress leader Ashok Chavan challenging the governor’s decision granting the CBI nod to prosecute him in the Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society scam In October last the HC had asked the CBI to conduct further probe into alleged `benami’ (proxy) flats in the Adarsh building even as the Central agency said it has already completed its probe in the scam and submitted chargesheet two years ago The order was passed on a PIL filed by activist Pravin Wategaonkar alleging that senior bureaucrats and politicians held benami flats in the south Mumbai high rise which was a quid-pro-quo for clearing files related to the housing society in violation of several norms Last week Chavan’s counsel Amit Desai while claiming the CBI was only acting at the behest of the BJP-led government told the division bench that it has been a year since the HC ordered the agency to carry out further probe in the case but till date no report in the form of supplementary chargesheet has been filed in the lower court To this CBI counsel Hiten Venegaonkar told the HC that further probe was conducted and a report in a sealed cover submitted to the bench hearing the PIL “A supplementary chargesheet under section 173 (a) of the Criminal Procedure Code is filed if any fresh material is found Our report says there is nothing more to probe in the case and that our investigation is complete” Venegaonkar said Wategaonkar’s petition is likely to come up for hearing in November The agency had filed a first information report (FIR) on January 29 2011 in which it named 14 accused including Chavan a former Maharashtra chief minister The other accused included top bureaucrats and retired army officials among others The agency filed its first chargesheet in July 2012 The Central agency had later filed a supplementary chargesheet in the case revealing details of benami flats in the 31-storey building The HC in its October order directing the CBI to conduct further probe had expressed dissatisfaction with the two reports submitted by the agency giving out details on what their probe has revealed “From the two reports submitted earlier (by the CBI) we find that there has been no application of mind by the investigating officer of the CBI It is suffice to say we are not satisfied with the manner in which investigation has been carried out” the court had observed The CBI had accused Chavan a Lok Sabha MP now of approving additional construction

out on selection Things got pretty difficult but I’ve tried to put the best possible team together that I’ve ever seen in IPL history” For the opening slot Ponting has chosen the destructive duo of Chris Gayle and David Warner “I’ve gone for two extremely dynamic opening batsmen and I wouldn’t like to be an opening bowler bowling to these two together” The middle order comprises of a strong unit featuring Virat Kohli Rohit Sharma Suresh Raina MS Dhoni “MS Dhoni is at No6 and he’ll also be the captain of my side He brings huge experience and whenever he’s at the crease … you’re always a chance

birth for Euro final (Source: Reuters) Top News Wales have no reason to fear Portugal in their Euro 2016 semi-final on Wednesday and despite key players missing coach Chris Coleman said he had complete faith in their replacements to do the job His team have been one of the big surprises of the tournament topping a group including neighbours England dumping out one of the favourites Belgium in the quarter-finals and progressing to highs not seen enjoyed by the Welsh side since 1958 “It’s new territory You will either be blinded by the lights and crawl back to where you came from or have belief in yourself and stand up for your identity” Coleman told reporters at his side’s training camp in Brittany on Sunday “You spend too much time thinking about what you don’t want to happen rather than concentrating on what you want to happen The message has been no fear there’s nothing to be afraid of “We screamed long and hard to be at a major tournament and as soon as we got here the handcuffs were off We’re not restricted” Coleman’s biggest selection dilemma will be seeing how to replace influential midfielder Aaron Ramsey – who has scored one goal and contributed four assists – and centre back Ben Davies Both miss the match in Lyon through suspension but Coleman was adamant that he had enough strength in depth team togetherness and tactical ability to overcome the setback “They are two outstanding players but it’s not like we haven’t been without them before” he said “Our biggest gripe before the tournament was that we couldn’t get our strongest team on pitch for enough consecutive games “I have no worries about whoever steps in I don’t worry about these players because they know the drill what’s expected of them the game plan that won’t change” Coleman sought to play down the hype on the potential rivalry between his talisman Gareth Bale who has scored three goals at Euro 2016 and Portuguese captain Cristiano Ronaldo who unlike his Real Madrid team mate has yet to really impress during the tournament Coleman said focusing too much on Ronaldo would be detrimental and a distraction to his team because Portugal’s top scorer was capable of doing

dramatically upended the music industry and allowed you to carry “1000 songs in your pocket” If the iPod changed the way we listened to music the company’s own dramatic transformation in fortunes from a struggling laggard to one of the world’s most valuable businesses is also entwined with music Back then the Napster-hit recording industry was reeling from declining CD sales and a spike in online piracy Apple’s iTunes was the first alternative that promised to slow the industry’s revenue haemorrhage by making it possible for users to purchase individual songs for a small fee Its spectacular success earned Apple the grudging gratitude of record labels which could at last take a break from their unsurprisingly unpopular tactic of suing college kids and grandmothers for copyright violation

of volatilityemerging markets must set their house in order The recent slowdown in GDP growth and some of its causes are not unique to India While a lot of our problems appear homegrownit is interesting to note that several emerging economies are facing similar downturns This sudden deceleration of growth in emerging markets (EMs) poses challenges for the world economy EMs had contributed significantly to global growth and a slowdown in these economies could result in a downturn for the world economy Global growth forecasts have been cut primarily due to the sluggish growth in emerging economies This slowdown was the focus of many a debate at the annual meetings of the IMF and the World Bank earlier this month Almost all EMs are now showing a decline in GDP growth Furthermost forecasts for EM growth have been cut The discussion suggested that emerging economies will face three major challenges in the coming months: high volatility of capital flowsa cyclical downturn and structural problems The high volatility of capital flows in recent times stems from the anticipation of decisions that are yet to be taken by the US Fed Everyone understands that the Fed must cut back on its asset purchases Indeedit is argued that they are no longer necessaryas the balance sheet of the Fed is large enough to support much greater credit growth if there was enough demand for it The money multiplier has fallen sharply While there is an increase in reserve money growththe corresponding growth in money supplywhich happens only when there is demand for credit and lending by banksis much lower Howeverthe asset purchase programme of the Fed has also become a signalling device As long as the Fed is buying assetspeople believe that long-term interest rates in the US will remain low Ben Bernankes carefully drafted May 22 communicationthat the Fed must now start devising a strategy to reduce its asset purchaseswas read by jittery financial markets as an announcement of the programmes withdrawal The nervousness of the marketsand the perception that the Feds purchases must be reduced and eventually stopped has created a tense situation Every tiny bit of information about the US economy has the potential to induce the entry or exit of waves of capital in the US The impact on EMs has been far greater and more sudden than what was initially expected Not only is there no prior example of such unconventional monetary policythe inflows and outflows of capital from EMs are not symmetric When the Fed purchases startedthe inflow into EMs was slower and less dramatic than the outflow has been now Some observers believe that the May-July drama was only a trailer of what is to come when the Fed actually starts tapering its bond purchases Market participants and investors seem to be bracing themselves for higher volatility Others believe that the markets have already factored in the effect of a US tapering the corrections that were to be made in investor portfolios and EM currencies have already been made Policy-makersespecially among emerging economiesprefer to think that the worstin terms of market volatilityis over This is understandableas there is a limited menu of possible responses The most common opinion appears to be that before the next wave of volatility hits financial marketsthat isbefore the US Fed starts talking about tapering againemerging economies with weak macroeconomic fundamentals should set their house in order As of nowEMs have got some respite This is mainly due to two reasons FirstUS unemployment numbers showed a reduction in labour participationsuggesting that the labour market is not healthyso a reduction in the unemployment rate cannot be taken literally Secondthe fiscal contraction in the US has slowed down the expected pace of recovery Setting ones house in order is not easyespecially since growth is expected to be slower For exampleeven though slower growth is forecastboth for cyclical and structural reasonsthe IMF has suggested that EMs undertake fiscal consolidation Indiafor exampleoverdid its fiscal stimulus in 2009 and 2010 and a correction for this would entail fiscal contraction This couldhoweverimpact emerging economies growth rates adversely On the monetary policy frontwhile the IMF did not say that emerging economies should maintain a tight monetary stance in response to higher US interest ratesit did recommend that countries with high inflationary expectations put in place a sound framework for monetary policy Howeverin many countriessuch as Indiathis would mean a tightening of monetary policy A framework may not be credible or capable of pulling down inflationary expectations unless such a tightening were undertaken But tighter monetary policy could mean a further contraction in output In the aftermath of the recent volatilitytwo distinct sets of countries seem to have emerged Firstthose that have sound macroeconomic fundamentals small fiscal and current account deficitsand low inflation Secondthose that had witnessed fiscal expansions and inflation that was higher than world inflation in recent years Countries like Mexico and Chile appear to be well prepared for the taperingwith sound fiscal and monetary policies in placebut they have slowed down for structural reasons They need to undertake structural reforms Other EMs have to counter the impact of tighter fiscal and monetary policies Structural reforms like building infrastructurecreating greater labour flexibility and a good business environment can increase growth But such long-term reforms are a political process In democratic countries like IndiaTurkey and Brazilthey require building political consensus and are not quick and easy The only instrument that might help is currency flexibility An assessment of currency mismatches suggests that emerging economies are better placed and more resilient today than in the past Countries that allow currency depreciation might be in a better position to take advantage of the pick-up in the US economy and world trade than those that do not For emerging economies like Indiathe coming months might witness slower growthhigher volatilitycontractionary fiscal policy and monetary tightening The writerRBI Chair Professor at the NIPFPDelhiis a consulting editor for The Indian Express and non-resident scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIn a climate where freedom of speech and expression is under attack on numerous fronts and with even the judiciary refusing to stand up for freedom of speech the draft Protection of Speech and Reputation Bill 2016 is a welcome development in expanding this important right As part of an initiative being spearheaded by Tathagatha Satpathy a Member of Parliament belonging to the Biju Janata Dal it’s a noble effort to re-assert the right to free speech in India The bill is currently in the draft stage and is open to public comments for further refinement and fine-tuning Representational image AFP The bill itself aims to re-balance the relationship between the freedom of speech and the right to reputation Following the judgment of the Supreme Court upholding the constitutional validity of Section 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code 1860 which criminalises defamation in India many felt that the balance had tilted dangerously away from the freedom of speech and towards the protection of reputation Even though the Constitution recognises that the freedom of speech may be limited through “reasonable restrictions” in the interests of preventing defamation the Supreme Court’s judgment went even further and seemed to make freedom of speech itself subordinate to the right to reputation Crucially the court failed to reason why even if reputation is a sound basis to limit freedom of speech defamation should necessarily be criminalised for these purposes as a “reasonable restriction” permitted under the Constitution This state of affairs of its own making does not seem to have dawned on the court as it wonders why persons in power continue to harass critics with criminal defamation cases The bill cuts through this flawed and incoherent reasoning of the Supreme Court and aims to create a legal framework that maintains a healthy balance; recognising both the primacy of freedom of speech and the need to have sufficient protection for an individual’s reputation as well To this effect the bill does two very important things: one it provides a reasonable procedure for protecting reputation without damaging freedom of speech and two it decriminalises defamation altogether by deleting Sections 499 to 502 of the IPC The two important changes are related to each other Criminal defamation is resorted to by parties simply because the regular civil remedy is not considered effective This is not a reflection of the substantive law of defamation alone It is a reflection of India’s civil justice system and the enormous delays and backlog that plague it The weaknesses in the justice system have meant that few people resort to this to claim damages for a legal injury suffered by them This results in the threat of damages not being a sufficient deterrent to those who cause the injury nor is there a promise of effective remedy to those who suffer such legal injury It is therefore easier for an aggrieved party to use the blunt instrument of criminal defamation with the threat of imprisonment and fine for the alleged defamer even if it doesn’t mean that there will be damages paid out to her for such defamation Criminal defamation law as it stands though is also open to serious abuse It has been used and continues to be used to harass political opposition and have a chilling effect on the criticism of the government and those in positions of power Initially intended to prevent people from taking the law into their own hands (usually by challenging other to duels unto death in public) criminal defamation law has now become a favoured tool to punish a critic through the process rather than actually deter defamers The bill goes some distance in addressing these two inter-linked issues —providing an effective remedy for civil defamation and removing the offence of criminal defamation as an offence from the IPC The bill cuts through this flawed and incoherent reasoning of the Supreme Court and aims to create a legal framework that maintains a healthy balance; recognising both the primacy of freedom of speech and the need to have sufficient protection for an individual’s reputation as well Being a bill introduced in Parliament it of course has its limitations For one it can’t undertake the kind of wholescale reform needed to restore public confidence in the civil justice system In as much as the bill attempts to provide an effective civil remedy for defamation it can’t make sure that the system as a whole responds to the needs of a litigant for quick and effective justice It does limit the scope for abuse for instance by demanding that a suit for defamation be filed in an area where the defendant resides or carries on a business or profession However this requires district court judges in India to be alert to the possibility of abuse where a case has been deliberately filed in a court lacking jurisdiction —something that overburdened and ill-equipped judges have not been able to do in other cases However this criticism must not detract from the key innovations and changes proposed in the bill They are much needed and should be seriously considered by Parliament for passage Though the history of successfully passed private members’ bills is not very encouraging nonetheless given that this is a bill which will have important implications for members of the political class who are likely to face criminal defamation from their political opponents one hopes that it will be taken up seriously for debate and discussion if not ultimate passage as a law The author is a Senior Resident Fellow at the Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy and views expressed here are entirely personal He has also assisted in and provided inputs to the drafters of the Protection of Speech and Reputation Bill 2016 in the initial stages of its conception including
