In the film thriller Unstoppable, the runaway freight locomotive screeches around the corner, just avoiding flying off the rails into a toxic depot. And so it is with the apparently unstoppable UK economy. Just as it screeches to the edge of a double dip recession – toxic for the government – up pop the GDP figures. Growth is not runaway, but parts are doing well – manufacturing in particular. London too is on the up, with financial and business services growing at twice the national rate as the City returns to health.But just like Denzel Washington, the steely-nerved train driver in the film, the chancellor knows he can’t afford to relax yet. Growth figures will mute critics of the government’s cuts, but it is still pretty shaky out there. Many public sector job losses have still to come through, consumers are nervous, and sovereign debt crises are still roaming Europe. And economists worry about the return of the three-day week – this time imposed not by unions, but Royal nuptials.The government’s push for growth must continue. The negative GDP figures announced in January had a transformative effect on ministers – the quest for growth trumped all other political considerations.The government’s growth review and the ensuing budget contained a barrage of measures to get the financial juices flowing again. The tax breaks to encourage venture capital investments will particularly help London, while the mayor also secured an enterprise zone in the Royal Docks. For our part, we have launched a new agency to promote London internationally to investors, visitors and students, and are on course to recruit over 20,000 apprenticeships this year.Opponents of growth will use the GDP figures to say the government can let its guard down. Those who want more regulation of business – or at least want to stop deregulation – will say we can all relax now. Those who wince at corporation tax cuts will say we need to cut no more. But we need to continue promoting growth – we are still behind where we were pre-recession, and youth unemployment is high. There are lots of reasons to be optimistic – London remains a global powerhouse, well positioned for recovery. We retain our fundamental strengths of a highly skilled, highly productive economy, and are clearly on the path to recovery. But it’s too soon to put our feet up.Anthony Browne is an adviser to the Mayor of London. center_img Wednesday 27 April 2011 8:25 pm Share Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comlast_img read more

S&P: Codere default “virtual certainty” in new financing deal

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter S&P: Codere default “virtual certainty” in new financing deal Topics: Casino & games Finance Regions: Europe LATAM Southern Europe Italy Spain 22nd July 2020 | By Daniel O’Boylecenter_img Email Address Credit ratings agency Standard and Poor’s has downgraded Spain, Italy and Latin America-facing operator Codere’s credit rating for the fifth time in just over nine months, indiciating default is a “virtual certainty”. Casino & games Credit ratings agency Standard and Poor’s has downgraded Spain, Italy and Latin America-facing operator Codere’s credit rating for the fifth time in just over nine months, indiciating default is a “virtual certainty”.Last week (14 July), the operator agreed a new €250m (£227.4m/$285.1m) refinancing agreement with its existing bondholders. However, the ratings agency said that this refinancing was “tantamount to a selective default” and should it be accepted at Codere’s next shareholders’ meeting on 30 July and by a large enough percentage of creditors, it would determine the operator to be in default.“In our view, the transaction will result in investors receiving less than originally promised on the original securities,” Standard and Poor’s said.This, it said, was due to the fact that the agreement allowed Codere to pay its interest with bonds of its own, through a pay-in-kind process.If the deal was not accepted, the ratings agency said Codere was likely to face a breach of covenant within three months, noting its “high level of debt and servicing costs” which it said made some form of debt restructuring “highly likely”.Standard and Poor’s added that Codere estimates it requires up to €100m in additional funds to comfortably cover cash burn and leakage related to effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.“We expect Codere’s credit metrics will materially deteriorate in 2020 while the recovery for 2021 remains uncertain,” Standard and Poor’s added. “As governments have started to ease lockdowns, Codere has resumed its operations in Italy and Spain, seven halls in Mexico, and the Uruguayan racetrack.“These operations represent less than half of Codere’s business. Under our base case, we expect most of Codere’s gaming stores to reopen by August-September 2020.“However, we note that the reopening phase in Latin America remains developing and there could be a downside to our assumptions. There is also still uncertainty regarding restrictions to be followed in stores, customer behavior toward visiting gaming halls, and the risk of a potential second wave of the pandemic.”This marks the fifth time that Codere had been downgraded in the past eight months, with the first occurring in October when it was switched from B to B-, shortly after Codere announced that financial inconsistencies could impact its full-year results.Codere in February revealed a 5.9% year-on-year decline in revenue for 2019, after growth in European markets was offset by currency fluctuations hitting the contribution from its Argentinean business.In May, it also reported that revenue fell 21.3% to €278.5m in the first quarter of 2020, while a combination of retail shutdowns resulting from novel coronavirus (Covid-19) and exchange rate fluctuations contributed to losses rising to €97.1m.last_img read more

The client commissioned Studio Saxe to create a dwelling in the jungle that brings the outside in. The property was composed of a slope that went down into a beautiful creek that overlooks the jungle. Studio Saxe decided to create a large triple height space to be able to see the sky all the way from the bottom of the jungle floor and to appreciate the full scope of every tree that surrounds the house. Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerSave this picture!Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerThis volume of space enclosed in glass is a powerful moment that brings shadows inside, natural ventilation and provides a place which is always surrounded by the jungle.Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerThe counter-intuitive design thought of sinking the house in the ground and at the same time creating a vertical atrium, that creates a powerful moment of discovery when one enters the house. The house is composed of bedrooms that float over the landscape and a common living space that feels inside and out. All is housed within a large roof that creates shade and comfort. When working in a site with abundant vegetation and on a slope, one is tempted to put all living spaces hovering over the landscape, however we made the very conscious decision of grounding people to the forest floor in the main living area. This allowed us to then be able to create a dramatic tall space on top of it, in a way almost counterintuitively bringing the sounding forest much more strongly to the inside of the property.Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerThis creates a stronger connection between human habitation and the natural world that surrounds us. It would be very easy to build an air conditioning white unit; however, we decided on the opposite- to create a transparent object that does not impose itself on the site but rather sits within the existing trees. The geometry of the different elements of the house are then pushed, pulled and moved to adapt to the existing topographic conditions and existing tree locations.Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerThe construction method applied to this project consisted of large metal I beams that were prefabricated off-site and assembled in the property, therefore creating a light weight, sustainable and ephemeral construction process with very low impact on the jungle. This method of construction allowed for a quick installation on-site, reduction of costs and extreme openness of lightweight tropical architecture. This modern construction method combines steel with traditional teak wood work techniques for panels and doors.Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerThe project is conceived to protect itself from the sun in the afternoon through a beautiful louvered wall that filters light creating a specular effect of light coming through the leaves. Carefully placed openings with a correct orientation allow for cross ventilation to create comfort without the use of air conditioning. All materials where chosen to have minimum impact on site during construction as well as using reforested certified teak for the more natural elements of the house. The use of solar hot water and solar energy is prevalent in the construction, therefore minimizing the carbon footprint.Save this picture!© Andres Garcia LachnerProject gallerySee allShow lessSee-Through House / Koning Eizenberg ArchitectureSelected ProjectsKantini in Bikini Berlin / Studio AisslingerSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Guanacaste Province, Nosara, Costa RicaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Railroad crossings cause train deaths

first_imgSteven Smalls Jr., injured locomotive engineer.By a railroad workerSix people died horrible deaths when a Metro-North commuter train collided with a sports utility vehicle in Valhalla, N.Y., a northern suburb of New York City, on Feb. 6. Five of the bodies were burned beyond recognition.Even more people would probably have perished if it wasn’t for the heroic actions of locomotive engineer Steven Smalls Jr. Despite being injured, Smalls helped passengers get off the train.This tragedy occurred when a SUV stopped on the Commerce Street railroad grade crossing in Valhalla. Although engineer Smalls applied emergency braking, it was impossible to stop his train, which was moving at 58 miles per hour at the time.Two hundred eighty-eight people died in railroad crossing accidents in 2013. Railroad workers were among the victims.Amtrak Conductor Laurette Lee died when a truck slammed into the California Zephyr train at a grade crossing 70 miles east of Reno, Nev., on June 24, 2011.Not a “top priority” says CuomoHow can these tragedies be prevented? To eliminate grade crossing fatalities, eliminate grade crossings. But New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo doesn’t think so.“In theory it’s a nice idea,” said Cuomo. “In practicality, do we have the money, do we have the time? And is it one of the top priority safety projects? I would say no.” (New York Times, Feb. 5)Try telling that to the three children of Ellen Brody, who was driving that SUV that got stuck on the Commerce Street crossing and was burned alive.Even the Rail Safety Bureau of Andy Cuomo’s own state Department of Transportation admits that “the safest option regarding highway-railroad grade crossings is to eliminate or close them.” (dot.ny.gov)New York’s Public Service Commission was ordering railroads a century ago to eliminate grade crossings by building over or under highways.No money, Andy? Your father, Mario, stole billions from the Urban Development Corporation to build 30 prisons. This money was supposed to be spent to build low-cost housing.No time, Andy? The Long Island Railroad spent 30 years, from 1950 to 1980, to eliminate all the grade crossings on its Montauk branch from Jamaica to Babylon. This program must have saved dozens of lives.Metro-North’s New Haven line doesn’t have any grade crossings. Neither does the Amtrak line between New York and Washington.So why can’t the Rail Safety Improvement Act be funded and expanded to start eliminating the most dangerous railroad crossings?Crossing gates were only installed at that Commerce Street crossing after Gerard Dunne was killed there in 1984. This crossing is dangerously sited on a turnoff from the Taconic State Parkway.Nine teenagers were killed at the Long Island Railroad’s Herricks Road crossing in Mineola on March 14, 1982. It wasn’t until 1998 that a bridge was finally erected there, eliminating the bloody crossing.Long freight trains at grade crossings also block ambulances and fire trucks. Cudahy, Wis. — a Milwaukee suburb with less than 20,000 people — had to have two firehouses because of the Chicago & North Western (now Union Pacific) slicing through their town.What’s needed is a massive program — like the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s — to begin getting rid of these dangerous grade crossings. Tens of thousands of workers could be hired.Only a movement of the people will make this happen.pan>FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

While refusing to grant relief, the Single Bench of Justice Rajiv Shakdher noted that the movie has already been on the Netflix platform for long and it is now too late to grant injunction. Filed by Union of India and the Indian Air Force against the producers of the movie – Dharma Productions, the plea sought court’s direction to restrain the producers of the movie and any OTT platform to showcase it either privately or in public domain. The Central Government also demanded the withdrawal of the film from all social media platforms, electronic modes, and even from the publicity campaigns. It is argued by the Petitioners that under the Air Force Act and the Air Force Rules, that makers of any movie, serial or commercial wishing to depict the Indian Air Force or requiring assistance of the armed forces have to take the prior approval of the Ministry of Defence. The requirement of prior approval is also stipulated in the 2013 guidelines issued by the Ministry of Defence, which requires a preview of the film to be produced before a ‘Preview Committee’ set up under the said guidelines. It is argued by the Petitioners that while offering to consider the said proposal for offering requisite assistance from the armed forces, the Ministry was under a bonafide belief and impression that the intentions of the Defendants was to make a film whereby the Indian Air Force would be showcased with due authenticity and integrity, which encourage the youth of the nation to join the Armed Forces and serve the nation. While claiming that the Defendants unilaterally changed the name of the movie to ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’ from just the ‘Kargil Girl’ without the approval of the Ministry, it was argued that: ‘A Historical film made on the Indian Armed Forces based on the life story of a war hero has to be based on the true incidents/instances and the audience watching such a biopic film assumes that the incidents/events shown therein are actual and true event. Such a movie cannot be fictionalized or dramatized to such an extent as in the present movie wherein an entirely different perspective is created based on false and misleading facts/events which leaves an adverse impression in the minds of the viewers thereby tarnishing the image of the true characters and the organization which is shown in a historical and biopic film.’ The Petitioners further submitted that the Defendants projected their commercial film as a historical biopic and distorted the true and correct facts purely for sensationalizing the same in order to make commercial gains. The Petitioners in this case were represented by Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain, and Standing Counsel Gaurang Kanth. Next Storylast_img read more

Silicon Valley exodus: Where’d everyone go?

first_imgAs companies leave Silicon Valley, Austin, Texas is becoming a top destination. (Getty) As the pandemic rages across the U.S., it’s unclear when employees will be able to return to their offices. That’s led to a huge shift in San Francisco real estate that may impact the city for years to come.While companies try to figure out what the future of work looks like, some of their employees have abandoned the Bay Area, the New York Times reported. Now, those firms are following suit.Some of the companies that are fueled San Francisco’s most recent tech boom — including Twitter and Airbnb — are trying to get out, or at least substantially decrease their footprint in the city. Twitter and Dropbox have sought to sublease their San Francisco offices as they allow employees to work from home forever. (Facebook has also given employees that option.)Read moreTwitter, big tenant in Midtown South, says employees can permanently work from homeSurvey reveals why employees stay home or return to workCuomo announces plan to get workers back to offices TagsCommercial Real EstateSilicon ValleyTechnology And Pinterest paid a staggering $90 million to cancel its 490,000-square-foot lease at 88 Bluxome, an in-the-works development project.The result: The city’s office vacancy rate in the city has jumped to nearly 17 percent.Moreover, rents in San Francisco have dropped substantially — by 27 percent compared to the same time last year — and Zillow reported more homes for sale in San Francisco than a year ago. And 90 percent of the searches involving San Francisco were for people moving out, the newspaper reported, citing data from MoveBuddha.Other states have emerged as strong Silicon Valley contenders. Austin, Texas, has proven popular with those leaving the Bay Area; plus, Alphabet, Amazon, Oracle and Facebook have all either expanded their footprints in the city or have plans to.Elon Musk, the Tesla founder, also said he has moved to Texas.[NYT] — Sasha Jones Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlinklast_img read more

Inter-annual variability in Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) density at South Georgia, Southern Ocean: 1997 – 2013

first_imgAntarctic krill (Euphausia superba) are a key species in Southern Ocean ecosystems, maintaining very large numbers of predators, and fluctuations in their abundance can affect the overall structure and functioning of the ecosystems. The interannual variability in the abundance and biomass of krill was examined using a 17-year time-series of acoustic observations undertaken in the Western Core Box (WCB) survey area to the northwest of South Georgia, Southern Ocean. Krill targets were identified in acoustic data using a multifrequency identification window and converted to krill density using the Stochastic Distorted-Wave Born Approximation target strength model. Krill density ranged over several orders of magnitude (0–10 000 g m−2) and its distribution was highly skewed with many zero observations. Within each survey, the mean krill density was significantly correlated with the top 7% of the maximum krill densities observed. Hence, only the densest krill swarms detected in any one year drove the mean krill density estimates for the WCB in that year. WCB krill density (µ, mean density for the area) showed several years (1997/1998, 2001–2003, 2005–2007) of high values (µ > 30 g m−2) interspersed with years (1999/2000, 2004, 2009/2010) of low density (µ < 30 g m−2). This pattern showed three different periods, with fluctuations every 4–5 years. Cross correlation analyses of variability in krill density with current and lagged indices of ocean (sea surface temperature, SST and El Niño/Southern Oscillation) and atmospheric variability (Southern Annular Mode) found the highest correlation between krill density and winter SST (August SST) from the preceding year. A quadratic regression (r2 = 0.42, p < 0.05) provides a potentially valuable index for forecasting change in this ecosystem.last_img read more

Attorney Speaks About Resolved Civil Suit Against EPD

first_imgAttorney Speaks About Resolved Civil Suit Against EPDAPRIL 17TH, 2018 MELANIE ZAYAS EVANSVILLE, INDIANAA three year long civil rights lawsuit against the Evansville police has been resolved, now lawyers are speaking out. An Evansville man was set to face a jury in his case with the Evansville police department in March but after the resolution, a trial won’t happen at all.It all started back in 2015 when Evansville police say they caught 55-year-old Doug Scholp speeding but it didn’t stop there. Scholp says it went way too far but a settlement has now been reached. His attorney says it’s not a typical resolution for a case like this. EPD officers say Scholp was seen speeding and tried to pull him over. Scholp says he never saw them behind his car and when he got home he says the officers pulled into his driveway behind him and forced their way into his garage.Body cam footage shows the moment when Scholp was confronted by police, then he says he was attacked, beaten and tased. He was charged with resisting law enforcement but he was acquitted after the police body camera video was released.The Evansville police department and its officers involved have agreed to have a judgment entered against them. In a statement, EPD said in part “The city and its officers denied all claims of wrongdoing. However, the city used a rule of procedure to resolve the matter for an amount paid by the city’s insurance policy”.Scholp’s attorney claims it was a case that was not settled but a case that was resolved through judgment. Attorney Scott Leroy Barnhart says, “The lawsuit was not dismissed. There was a judgment that was entered against the city of Evansville and the officer defendants so to that extent it was not a traditional settlement so to speak but the judgment was entered against the city of Evansville and the officer defendants for a monetary award. ” Attorney Barnhart says Scholp is only interested in moving forward with the case and does not want a similar situation to happen to anyone else.Barnhart adds, “He was an elderly, disabled individual. This shouldn’t have happened to him. It’s not to say that there are other officers and bad people but they could probably use more training based on my experience in this case and from that standpoint. His interest and motivation is to let the public know.” FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharecenter_img TwitterFacebooklast_img read more

Drought Benefit.

first_img So far this year, the one Georgia crop that has fared well in the drought is wheat, with a record state-average yield of 52 bushels per acre. Photo: Scott Bauer, USDA-ARS For Grady County farmer Roger Godwin, the drought that destroyed his corn crop wasn’tall bad. After all, it did help him produce the record wheat yield he’d dreamed of growingfor years. “I’ve been wanting to do it all along,” Godwin said. “But itjust never quite got there.”Godwin had gotten close to making 100 bushels per acre before, only missing his goal byone or two bushels. But this year, after 15 years of trying, he smashed through thehundred-bushel-per-acre barrier, averaging an unheard-of 135 bushels per acre. That’s themost wheat grown by an individual farmer since the University of Georgia started keepingrecords in the early 1980s.”This time we hit it,” Godwin said with a smile. To put the extraordinaryyield into perspective, Godwin’s average was more than two and a half times the stateaverage of 52 bushels per acre, which was itself the highest state average since 1866 –two years after General Sherman hiked through Georgia.Dry April, May Helped Yields”Certainly, the dry weather had a great impact in April and May on our wheatyields,” said Dewey Lee, a wheat specialist with the UGA College of Agricultural andEnvironmental Sciences. Dry weather late in the growing season helps keep down wheatdiseases, he said, that could have hurt production.Besides a record-setting yield, Godwin got another benefit. He grew exceptionallyhigh-quality wheat, which raises even more the price he will get for his crop. Godwin, whogrew 200 acres of wheat, could have competition next year if other growers follow aprescription on ways to improve wheat in a booklet at county extension offices. Lee, oneof the booklet authors, says farmers who follow the guidelines can increase their yieldssignificantly.The wheat may help some farmers stay in business, providing money to help fight thedrought’s more detrimental effects. “That additional cash, the extra yield, certainlyhelped them greatly,” Lee said.Godwin has only one regret. “Now, I sorta wish I had gone ahead and planted more wheat,” he said. Other Georgia farmers probably wish that, too. While their 240,000 acres of wheat prospered this year, the drought devastated most of their 340,000 acres of corn.The Georgia corn crop, only 20 percent harvested, is 72 percent mature, and the Georgia Agricultural Statistics Service rates 51 percent poor or very poor. The record wheat harvest is complete.last_img read more

UK publishes plan for introduction of CDC schemes

first_imgWhile the framework was based on the Royal Mail proposal, the DWP said it would “structure our legislation to allow us to move promptly to other forms of CDC benefit provision”, including for multi-employer arrangements and “decumulation-only” models. “Royal Mail and CWU have been campaigning together to bring about this legislation, building a cross-party alliance of supporters in both houses of parliament as well as working with government. We now look ahead to the next stage, and ultimately, delivering the UK’s first CDC pension.”Jon Millidge, chief risk and governance officer, Royal Mail “The pensions industry desperately needs innovation if we are to enable people to retire with dignity and security. The CWU… will be delighted to prove that CDC options will prove to be a watershed moment in pension provision and benefit working people way beyond our own membership.”Terry Pullinger, deputy general secretary for postal, CWUGuy Opperman, minister for pensions and financial inclusion, said of the government’s consultation: “There were encouraging signs of a growing interest in CDC [arrangements] among employers and commercial providers outside of the Royal Mail and CWU.“I expect this will increase further as all parties become more accustomed to this type of provision. There are 140,000 postmen and women working for Royal Mail in depots up and down the UK. It is clear these employees and the CWU are very engaged and supportive of CDC [schemes].”Inter-generational fairnessSome respondents to the DWP’s consultation were critical of the plan to introduce CDC schemes, highlighting perceived inter-generational unfairness.However, the DWP said it was “confident” that its chosen approach would “not create new inequalities in the occupational pensions system”, highlighting that imbalances between age cohorts exist in other forms of pension arrangement.It added that its regulatory regime for CDC plans would “require all schemes to have a sustainability and continuity strategy that assesses whether the scheme continues to provide value to members and properly addresses the risk of inter-generational imbalance”.The paper also advocated a “best estimate” approach to valuing scheme assets, and opted against requiring new CDC schemes to build a financial buffer to soften the impact of asset price volatility. However, it said that it would not outlaw the creation of buffers if other CDC providers wished to introduce one.CommunicationsThe DWP emphasised the importance of clear communications with members, particularly around the circumstances in which benefits could be increased or reduced. This would form an important part of CDC regulation, it indicated.David Fairs, executive director of regulatory policy, analysis and advice at TPR, said in a statement: “We will be working closely with government to ensure clear, effective and efficient regulation is in place and that communications to members are also clear and comprehensive.”Rob Harper, partner at consultancy firm Hymans Robertson, added: “Ensuring clear member communications and strong governance are vital if CDC is to succeed and I’m glad the government has recognised this in its response.“Pension provision is already far too complicated for many savers to fully understand and early transparency from employers and providers will aid member understanding of what CDC really means for them.”Questionable timelineIn his introduction to the DWP’s paper, Guy Opperman said legislation would be put forward “as soon as parliamentary time allows” – a caveat added to several other recent pension documents published by the department.Sir Steve Webb – who pushed for the introduction of so-called ‘defined ambition’ schemes during his time as pensions minister from 2010 to 2015 – warned it could still be many years before the first CDC schemes are launched. The UK government is set to legislate for collective defined contribution (CDC) schemes after more than a year of negotiation and consultation with industry stakeholders.In a paper published today, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) outlined its framework for the introduction of CDC schemes for the first time in the UK.The model was based on a plan put forward by Royal Mail and the Communication Workers’ Union (CWU), which have been lobbying for CDC legislation for the past year, after selecting it as the best option for settling a long-running dispute over pay and conditions.According to the DWP’s paper, all new CDC schemes would have to be approved by the Pensions Regulator (TPR), in a similar manner to the authorisation regime recently introduced for defined contribution master trusts. Royal Mail and its workers’ union have been campaigning for CDC legislation for more than a year“Even for the Royal Mail it is likely to be several years before a scheme could be up and running,” said Sir Steve – now director of policy at Royal London.“If other employers want to use a different model, this could need new primary legislation and we would probably be talking about the mid-2020s before further schemes could be in place.“I strongly suspect that the government has very limited legal resources as civil servants are being diverted to work on Brexit-related legislation, and this is limiting their ability to produce more comprehensive legislation on CDC.”The DWP’s consultation paper is available here.last_img read more

Softball: Wisconsin heads to NCAA tournament for sixth time

first_imgThe Badgers will take on the Mizzou Tigers Friday at 8 p.m. with ESPN televising the match-up between the SEC and the Big Ten. For the sixth time in 20 years, the University of Wisconsin women’s softball team has earned a spot in the 2017 NCAA women’s College World Series.The Badgers (33-15, 11-11 Big Ten) were awarded one of the non-ranked spots by the NCAA committee this year and were one of five Big Ten teams invited to participate in this year’s tournament. The University of Minnesota, the University of Michigan, Ohio State University and the University of Illinois are among some of the teams hoping to hoist that national trophy for the Big Ten.This year’s selection, specifically the tournament locations, sparked quite a bit of controversy within the Big Ten. Minnesota, who is currently 54-3 this season, was not only un-ranked, but was also not allowed to host part of the tournament in Minneapolis.Softball: Sky is limit for Badger squad with wealth of experienceWhen all was said and done at the end of the 2016 season, the University of Wisconsin softball team found Read…The top seed at the 2017 NCAA tournament is the University of Florida, who currently has a 50-6 record for their season. Why Minnesota is not only un-ranked, but not even ranked higher than a school with a worse record than them continues to be a mystery to all Big Ten teams.This shows just some of the struggles that Big Ten softball has been going through for years. With Southeastern Conference and Pacific-12 teams constantly taking top-place rankings, Big Ten teams are usually seen as second-rate teams in comparison.Wisconsin softball: The classic underdog storyWisconsin walks into this tournament as the underdogs, both within their conference and within the tournament — but that’s just how the Badgers like to be seen. Senior catcher Chloe Miller plans on using the Badgers current underdog status to create waves at the tournament and to promote Big Ten softball as a whole.Softball: Chloe Miller adds draft pick to season resumeJust to add to the excitement of a University of Wisconsin softball team fighting for a postseason spot in the Read…“[Wisconsin] and the other four Big Ten teams that made it are banded together and we’re going out there to mess up some people’s plans and prove people wrong,” Miller said. “Being able to do that against [the University of Missouri] on primetime slot on ESPN, Friday night at 8 o’clock is pretty cool.”Wisconsin heads up to Oregon Friday to take part in the Eugene Regional round, hosted by the University of Oregon. If UW manages to take Mizzou, they will then continue on to yet another tough challenge, trying to defeat Oregon at home.UW faces challenges with OregonOregon is currently on a roll, with a 10-game winning streak and a 47-6 record so far this season. The Ducks are the No. 3 seed overall in this year’s tournament and have allowed a grand total of four runs in their last six games played.In comparison, Oregon managed to collect a grand total of 42 runs from their last six games played.Wisconsin head coach Yvette Healy knows this tournament is challenging, but she also knows that she is bringing a team that has managed to do demonstrably better on the road than they have at home. Healy and the Badgers only managed to get a grand total of three wins at home this year, ending with a 3-9 record at Goodman, but have a 14-3 record for away games and a 16-3 record for neutral games.Softball: Badgers improve on best start in program historyThe University of Wisconsin softball team continued rolling in this young season, improving to 12-2 on the year after the Read…“We play great on the road,” Healy said. “No one likes me saying this, but we’ve been to that regional twice and we’ve managed to put up four wins, so we’ve got more wins at Oregon’s field than we had at Goodman this year. That’s a crazy statistic, but it’s still true so I’m riding on that — that it feels great so let’s go for our fifth win at that stadium.”last_img read more

Maybe they should. The 28-year-old born in Havana is winning over his new teammates with his ability behind the plate. “He catches the ball deep. He catches it soft,” Dodgers right-hander Brandon McCarthy told the O.C. Register recently. “You might not know why you’re doing something well. For years and years, guys took walks and didn’t know it was an extremely valuable thing they were doing. They just were not hitting. You found out after the fact what you were doing was valuable.” Yeah, so Grandal was 0 for 5 with three walks when the Dodgers took two out of three against the Padres in the season opening series at Dodger Stadium. Matt Kemp, on the other hand, was 5 for 13 (.385) with those three RBIs in the opening loss.NO. 9: AFL: L.A. KISS vs. ARIZONA:Details/TV: At Honda Center, Saturday, 7 p.m., CBSSN:If you’ve been puckered up to the Kiss to this point – and really, why should you be? – you realize they’ve yet to win after the first four weeks, lost 10 straight going back to last year’s 3-15 finish, and should be pretty rattled having to face the Rattlers. But, hey, crank the music to 11 and maybe no one will notice. Even with a cool looking guitar pick as a logo, you’ve got to pick your spots.NO. 10: TENNIS: 115th OJAI TOURNAMENTDetails/TV: At Libbey Park in Ojai, Wednesday-Sunday:Started in 1896 by William Thacher, the oldest and largest amateur event in the same U.S. location continues on with 27 different divisions, including the Pac-12 men’s dual championship and individual championships. and more than 1,400 junior, high school, college and Open players, heading out to more than 30 sites through Ventura County. Don’t forget the fresh-squeezed orange juice and cookies served daily. Those who have played in this event and went on to win a Grand Slam include Bill Tilden, Helen Wills Moody, Tony Trabert, Bobby Riggs, Jack Kramer, Arthur Ashe, Billie Jean King, Pancho Gonzales, Stan Smith, Jimmy Connors, Tracy Austin, Lindsay Davenport, Pete Sampras and the Bryan twins. Because we can, we looked back at how some of the NBA “experts” last October decided the 2014-15 season would end up. Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix had San Antonio defeating Chicago in the championship, but only after the Spurs got past the Clippers in the Western Conference finals. “It’s hard to bet against the defending champs that return 97.5 percent of their minutes from last season,” he wrote. SI colleague Phil Taylor had the same scenario. And SI’s Ben Golliver had the Spurs winning it all after they KO’d the Clippers in the conference finals. The reason SI’s Matt Dollinger, took the Clippers over OKC in the West, and then over Cleveland for the title was because that “while the Spurs return the exact same team that won the title, they won’t return with the same edge. A brutal loss to the Heat in the 2013 Finals fueled San Antonio’s title run last season. It’s unlikely last spring’s Finals romp will drum up the same emotions. Instead, another devastating defeat will catapult a new champion. The Clippers lost Game 5 in the West semifinals to the Thunder … this is the year the Clippers become L.A.’s team.” At CBSSports.com, Matt Moore took the Clippers over the Spurs in the West final, then over the Cavs for the title. Again, most assumed this was based on the Clippers and Spurs not hooking up until Round 3, not Round 1. So what if … we went over to WhatIfSports.com and looked at updated numbers, based on its simulating the entire playoffs 1,001 times and “taking into account home court advantage and the statistical makeup of each team.” The Clippers have a 63.5 percent edge over the Spurs and will win the first round in seven games, the data says. Yet, maybe you don’t want to know what happens from here. Its crunching numbers gives the Clippers a 24 percent chance of making it out of the conference semifinals (a predicted six-game loss to Houston in Round 2), with a 6.9 percent chance of getting to the NBA Finals, and a 4.3 percent chance of winning everything. Now, let’s continue where we left off on Sunday night’s Game 1.Game 3 is Friday at San Antonio (6:30 p.m., Prime, ESPN), with Game 4 on Sunday at San Antonio (12:30 p.m., Ch. 7).NO. 2: MLB: DODGERS at SAN FRANCISCO:Details/TV: Tuesday-Thursday, SportsNet L.A.:As fate and rotations seem to have it, NL Cy Young and MVP Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to match up against World Series MVP and Cy Young runner-up Madison Bumgarner as the star attractions for the middle day of this three game series. As numbers align, the 27-year-old Kershaw is also seeking his 100th career win in his 213th career start – compared to just 50 losses. Of all the teams he has beaten over the years, the Giants have been victims 14 times (one back of Colorado, whom he used to grind his first win of the 2015 season in his last start) and he was 3-0 against the NL wild-card-turned-World Series-champs during the regular season with a 1.69 ERA. Bumgarner, who doesn’t turn 26 until August, has a modest 1-1 record so far – matching Kershaw – with an ugly 5.29 ERA. The Padres tore him up for five runs and 10 hits in three innings on April 11 in a 10-2 loss. During the 2014 spring training, the thought of how a long-term Kershaw-Bumgarner rivalry could perhaps match the Magic Johnson-Larry Bird career arch as they continue to battle each other year after year. “It could happen,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy told MLB.com reporter Lyle Spencer. “They could be facing each other quite a bit down the road. You look at Clayton Kershaw, everything he’s accomplished, and Madison … one of the elite left-handers in the game. Hopefully, that is the case. You have one guy who sets a bar that high, you want to say you’re in that class.” Replied Bumgarner when asked about comparing himself to the Dodgers’ ace: “I don’t need Kershaw to want to be a better pitcher.” Fastballs often speak louder than words.

Djokovic wins record sixth Key Biscayne title

first_imgKEY BISCAYNE, Florida (AP):Novak Djokovic won a record-tying sixth Key Biscayne title and his third in a row yesterday, beating Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-3 in the Miami Open final.The top-ranked Djokovic improved to 28-1 this year. His only loss came when he retired during his quarter-final against Feliciano Lopez in Dubai with an eye infection.Djokovic won his 28th ATP Masters title, breaking the record he shared with Rafael Nadal, and won both Indian Wells and the Miami Open for the third year in a row. He didn’t lose a set in the tournament and tied Andre Agassi’s record of six men’s titles at Key Biscayne.The No. 6-seeded Nishikori lost to Djokovic for the sixth consecutive time and was doomed by an erratic serve. He double-faulted five times and Djokovic repeatedly pounced on his second serve to break five times.The weather was less oppressive than in recent days, with highs only in the 70s, but Djokovic made sure the match didn’t become an endurance test. He broke in three of Nishikori’s first four service games, dominating rallies in part because Nishikori’s shots lacked the precision of earlier matches.Nishikori required treatment from a trainer on his left thigh late in the second set, but his bigger problem was his opponent.- APlast_img read more

LAND COMMISSION: The Land Commission is on its way to solving Land Snags

first_imgPublic hearings on the proposed Land Rights Bill took place in the Chambers of the Liberian Senate on Monday, August 10, 2015, before the Senate Committee on Lands, Mines, Energy, Natural Resources and Environment (lead Committee) and the Committee on Judiciary, Claims, Human Rights and Petitions, as well as the Committee on Lands, Mines, Natural Resources & Environment and Judiciary of the House of Representatives, with call from a cross-section of Institutions represented, including the Governance Commission, Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy, Sustainable Development Institute (SDI), National Civil Society Council of Liberia, the National Traditional Council of Liberia, amongst others, to pass the law.Earlier in his opening statement, the Senate Committee Chairman on Lands, Mines, Energy, Natural Resources and Environment, Senator Albert T. Chie of Grand Kru County, noted that, land rights, ownership, protection and use are very crucial to the existence and well-being of the Liberian people.Senator Chie said Liberia has suffered several land-related violences that resulted into the death of many citizens and residents and the destruction of properties. He said some of the land dispute cases are on the courts dockets unresolved, while several others are being addressed through dispute resolution at a snail pace. He furthered that many Liberians often predict that the next civil conflict will be land-related, but assured that Government’s decision to take all necessary measures to address land problems in the country through the reform of land policies, laws and programs is irreversible and unwavering as evidenced by the proposed Land Rights Bill.The opening statement by Senator Chie was followed by testimonies from several panelists who were invited to provide their candid opinions on the Land Rights Bill. They include the Minister of Lands, Mines and Energy, Hon. Patrick Sendolo, the Chairman of the Land Commission, Dr. Cecil T. O. Brandy, the Chairman of the Governance Commission, Dr. Amos C. Sawyer, the Chairperson of the National Civil Society Council of Liberia, Madam Frances Greaves, the Deputy Minister of Agriculture for Planning and Policy, Dr. Charles McClain, and Mr. Ali Kaba of Sustainable Development Initiative (SDI), amongst others. The panelists pleaded with the legislators for the passage of the proposed Land Rights Bill, affirming that the drafting of the Bill and its subsequent submission to the National Legislature through the office of the President, was a result of extensive and participatory consultations, with diverse stakeholders, thus the Bill when passed will benefit the government and people of Liberia. However, two of the panelists, former Deputy Minister of Lands, Mines and Energy, ECB Jones and the Managing Director of the Forestry Development Authority (FDA), Harrison Karnwea, held different views and argued against some provisions in the Land Rights Bill.Mr. Jones said even though he is not opposed to the passage of the Land Rights Bill, there were however some issues, which he referred to as “bugs” that needed to be revisited and clarified before the Bill is passed into Law. He cautioned committee members of both houses not to hastily pass the Bill because the issue of land is critical to sustaining the country’s peace and security while at the same time protecting the rights of the people as enshrined in the Constitution. He then volunteered to work with the Joint Committees on Lands, Mines, Energy, Natural Resources and Environment to point out what he perceived as “bugs” and proffer his expert opinions. For his part, FDA Managing Director, Harrison Karnwea similarly, subscribed to the passage of the Bill, but expressed concern that the Land Rights Bill could be in conflict with some provisions in the Community Rights Law. Hon. Karnwea also stressed the issue of governance as it relates to the forestry reform law of 2006, which mandates the FDA to set aside 30% of the remaining forest as protected area. He therefore requested the honorable legislature to critically look into these issues with a view that they are not in conflict with other laws before the passage of the Bill.In a statement during the hearing, Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe also supported the passage of the proposed Land Rights Bill, which he said is in the best interest of the Liberian people. Cllr. Gongloe specifically argued against the issues raised by Hon. Harrison Karnwea, stating that the Community Rights Law is possessory rights which are different from title rights. Cllr. Gongloe said the proposed Bill, for the first time in the history of Liberia, gives communities the opportunity to have titles to their land, making it possible for them to negotiate with investors, which will lead to greater economic advancement for all Liberians. The National Legislature now has the task to rectify and fast-track the passage of the historic Land Rights Bill to curb the injustices of huge land grab in the country by those with significant economic status that have persisted in the land sector for years.The draft Land Rights Bill already provides wide range of protections for customary land rights, which if retained and passed into law, will fulfill the potential protection of security of tenure for the customary land rights as contained in the Land Rights Policy. Over the years, there have been disparities between user’s rights and ownership rights, but the Bill has harmonized those rights by equating them to that of the private ownership rights said Dr. Brandy in his closing statement. “Therefore, most of those issues that were raised in the hearing are captured in the Bill; we all need to read the document extensively so that we can together resolve these land issues, which have the potential of brewing violent land conflicts in the country,” Dr. Brandy concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Govt to return to tender for Specialty Hospital Project – Dr Norton

first_imgFedders Lloyd blacklistingIn light of Fedders Lloyd Corporation Limited being blacklisted over fraud and corruption practices by the World Bank, Minister of Public Health Dr George Norton said that the government has already taken a decision to discontinue a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with the Indian-based company and will now put the project to tender.Speaking with Guyana Times on Sunday, Dr Norton said that after learning about the company being blacklisted, the government held a discussion in this regard.An artist’s impression of the Specialty HospitalPublic Health Minister, Dr George Norton“We had a discussion and that discussion would have been as a direct result of what was revealed by the World Bank and that was only revealed recently… We will have to change the company… There is no doubt we will go to tender to get a new company as early as possible,” Dr Norton told this publication.The A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition had ignored a evaluation report compiled under the previous People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Administration, which disqualified Fedders Lloyd for the same project in 2012, and last year signed an MoU with that company to complete the Specialty Hospital after Surendra Engineering was sacked.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan, who once provided legal services for Fedders Lloyd, defended the company’s selection by his government, arguing that the company was being victimised by the previous government.The APNU/AFC government had also argued that in the interest of time and without any tendering process, it approached Fedders Lloyd, which was willing to complete and fully equip the medical facility with the remaining US$13.8 million of the US$18 million Line of Credit from the India Exim (Export-Import) Bank.However, in April the New Delhi-based company was blacklisted by the World Bank under its fraud and corruption policy as set forth in the Bank’s Procurement Guidelines or the Consultant Guidelines, forcing the APNU/AFC Administration to sever ties with the company, which had already commenced works on the hospital at Liliendaal, Greater Georgetown.According to the World Bank website, the company has been sanctioned from April 6, 2016 to April 5, 2020 for breaches of the institution’s procurement guidelines in 2004 and in 2010. The guideline, 1.14(a)(ii), under the heading ‘Fraud and Corruption’ states: “Fraudulent practice is any act or omission, including a misrepresentation, that knowingly or recklessly misleads, or attempts to mislead, a party to obtain a financial or other benefit or to avoid an obligation.”Further examination of the World Bank’s notes on the debarred firms and individuals, it explained the company will have to adhere to certain conditions during the period of sanction before it can be allowed to work on projects financed by the institution:“The period of ineligibility of Fedders Lloyd Corporation Limited extends to any legal entity that they directly or indirectly control.The company is ineligible to be awarded Bank-financed contracts for a period of four years.At the end of the Period of Debarment, the Respondent and the Sanctioned Affiliates may be released from debarment, provided that they have met corporate compliance conditions, cooperated with the WBG (World Bank Group) and fully complied with the terms of the NRA.”Last year, the government faced a barrage of criticism for hand-picking Fedders Lloyd, including from the Opposition, People’s Progressive Party/Civic.Following this recent development, a PPP/C official pointed out that had government considered the advice and warnings from the Opposition, this situation would not have arisen and the project would have avoided further delays.The PPP/C official further noted that in effect, the coalition administration had single-sourced the contractor and further alleged that government’s decision may have been influenced by the fact that the company had financed the party as well as individuals.Political commentators Ramon Gaskin and Dr Henry Jeffery had also criticised the government initially for bypassing the public procurement system and handpicking Fedders Lloyd.When contacted on Saturday, they noted that they are not surprised at the fact that the firm has been sanctioned by the World Bank especially since there was complete lack of transparency in the award of the contract to it.Gaskin told this newspaper that Fedders Lloyd is no good in the interest of Guyana; just as the first India-based company, Surendra Engineering, was not. “Surendra was no good – we had a lot of problems with them in terms of money – and Fedders Lloyd is no better… These foreign contractors are bad news,” he asserted.Dr Jeffery outlined that it was unfortunate that foreigners had to become involved in the matter for the right thing to happen: “People have been saying that the contract should have gone to open tender but government failed to do so.”Nevertheless, Dr Jeffery noted that Guyana wins in that the project will now rightfully go to tendering and this should be a lesson learned for the coalition government.Both political commentators also underscored the need for the APNU/AFC administration to take steps to have the Public Procurement Commission established.last_img read more

Tyrannosaur track found near Tumbler Ridge

first_imgOnly 14 tyrannosaur tracks have been discovered worldwide. Many of those have been found within the Tumbler Ridge Global Geopark, but the one found by UBC Geology student Carina Helm on August 30th was less than 10 km away from the town.“The very first rock I went to, right beside the road, had this huge track-shape on it with three toes,” Helm said. “I thought, ‘Surely that is too big to be a footprint?’ but I showed it to my Dad and next thing he was on his cell-phone to Rich McCrea telling him about the find.”T-Rex Track– Advertisement -The track measures 59 cm, but they estimate it was even bigger as the tip and claw of the longest toe has eroded away.Paleontologist Rich McCrea with the Peace Region Palaeontology Research Centre says the characteristics of the print still identify it as having belonged to a meat-eating dinosaur, despite the erosion.McCrea discovered BC’s first Tyrannosaur tooth in the same region back in 2004.President of the Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation  Jim Kincaid thanked Helm for her “sharp eyes and enthusiasm,” in helping find the track.Advertisement The decision is now being made to either leave the track in place as a roadside attraction, or haul it to the Museum. They feel the track will get vandalized left out in the open, but also that it will be difficult to get it to the Museum.In other pre-historic news, the new Philip J Currie Dinosaur Museum opened today as well.last_img read more

PREP NOTEBOOK Torrance to honor Blankinship

first_imgNorth Torrance’s Kyle Cryer already had established himself as a standout receiver, but he opened eyes with a prolific performance Thursday night at Redondo. Cryer rushed an eye-popping 44 times and gained 244 yards. He scored one touchdown and had three runs of 20 or more yards, including a long of 27 yards. “I knew he had numbers like that in him in an all-purpose role, but I would have been surprised if you told me he’d have that many rushing yards, considering he’s a receiver,” North coach Todd Croce said. Cryer had more than 200 receiving yards in Week 1. He moved to the backfield to help North try to snap a winless streak that has reached three games. Cryer didn’t care about his rushing totals. “We’re just trying to piece together a season,” he said. “We’ve got five guys up front and that’s all we’ve got.” Calling in reinforcements With a rising number of premier local cross country teams bolting from the South Bay Cup, Torrance coach Israel Pose knew he needed to make a drastic change. So he called in Saugus, the No. 2 girls team in CIF Division I, to add legitimacy to the meet. Look for an intense Saugus-Mira Costa showdown on the girls side. “Maybe getting Saugus will spark an interest,” Pose said. We’ve got a lot of good teams in the South Bay, but there’s coaches who don’t bring their teams to this meet, and it’s discouraging,” Pose said. The South Bay Cup is expected to have 15 teams, including Torrance, West Torrance, South Torrance, Mira Costa, North Torrance, Leuzinger and San Pedro. Saugus is coached by Rene Paragas, a former El Camino College runner who has known Pose for years. “Rene asks me every year if he could compete,” Pose said. “I always told him no before, but maybe we need to start bringing in some outsiders. Loyola and Lakewood have asked about this meet in the past.” The Hill has no love for this event. Peninsula, Palos Verdes and Chadwick opted not to run in this year’s version of the South Bay Cup. Redondo is expected to use its lower-level runners. Rain follies Friday’s rainy football games yielded an interesting statistic. There were seven safeties in the 10 games involving local teams. St. Bernard recorded a safety against Palos Verdes, Inglewood gave up one up in its game at San Clemente, Morningside got one against Animo, Westchester allowed two in its game with Washington and El Segundo and Mary Star each had one in its matchup at El Segundo. “I think any time you get the first rains of a season, the kids aren’t used to it, the fields aren’t ready for it and there’s a learning curve that goes with playing in wet weather,” El Segundo coach Steve Shevlin said. Shevlin said El Segundo’s field is in particularly poor shape and is not equipped to handle the wear and tear the teams put on it en route to a strange final score. El Segundo won the game, 11-2. “I’m sure it was a pretty interesting score to look at,” Mary Star coach Dino Andrie said. Close, but still, a cigar Palos Verdes girls volleyball coach Pinter Aguirre had a good reason for missing Tuesday’s match against Torrance. Aguirre informed Athletic Director Mike Boyd that he would not be attending the match so that he could be with his wife, Melissa, during the birth of their son, Connor James. The 6-pound, 12-ounce, 20-inch baby was born at 8:03 p.m. Tuesday. Palos Verdes captain Joanna Bahl called Aguirre to inform him of the team’s five-game loss to Torrance shortly after Connor was born, but her reason for calling wasn’t strictly volleyball-related. “She wanted to talk about the birth first and the match second,” Aguirre said. Quick ascension Redondo’s Hayward Gray was No. 3 on the Redondo depth chart as a junior, but this year he might be one of the quickest running backs in the South Bay. Gray rushed 26 times for 288 yards Thursday against North. He has the benefit of fullback Joe Rubio, who rushed 12 times for 55 yards. “We work well together,” Gray said. “He hits the hole and I come up behind him. I think it’s a good combination.” Linsky commits Peninsula baseball coach Dennis Gonsalves said that right-handed pitcher Lenny Linsky has made a verbal commitment to play at the University of Hawaii. – John Klima, David Saunders, Tony Ciniglio160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Angels, city of Anaheim play to packed courtroom

first_imgSANTA ANA — Angels owner Arte Moreno violated a 10-year-old contract with Anaheim and the city lost $100 million in tourism revenue and publicity when he changed the team’s name last year, a city attorney said Friday. A packed courtroom watched as the much-anticipated trial pitting the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim against the city of Anaheim began. Curious fans were on hand, some wearing red T-shirts that read “We Are Not L.A.” The city sued the Angels after Moreno changed the club’s name from the Anaheim Angels last January. The city alleges the 2002 World Series champions breached a contract that promised the word Anaheim would be displayed in the Angels’ name and on all team merchandise and advertising. Attorney Andrew Guilford argued that the city entered into a contract with the baseball team’s former owner, The Walt Disney Co., in 1996 with the understanding that the name Anaheim Angels would bring the city billions of “impressions” the publicity it would receive each time the Angels played or had their name mentioned by the media. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita He said when Moreno bought the team in 2003 that contract was still binding and remains binding until at least 2016, when the Angels can opt out at a cost. The team can also choose to stay with the agreement until 2029, when it expires. Guilford argued that the Angels violated that deal as part of an overall branding campaign for the Angels that included the name change. Along with adding Los Angeles to the name, he argued, team officials began removing the word Anaheim from all team merchandise, press releases and advertising as early as 2003. Guilford said he would present internal team memos and e-mails to show that. Guilford said testimony during the trial, which is expected to last a month, would show the city’s contract with the team was valued at $100 million in 1996 and that the city estimated it gave up another $100 million in concessions to Disney to get the word Anaheim in the team name. The city paid $20 million for stadium renovations, put up $10 million in billboard publicity and gave up land worth millions as part of the deal, he said. “That is an incredible brand that even Nike would die for,” Guilford said. “It’s a brand IBM would die for. It’s a brand even McDonalds and its golden arches would die for. And that’s the logo Anaheim is here to get back.” But Angels attorney Todd Theodora argued that the contract’s language only requires that the word Anaheim be included in the team’s name which it is and not prominently displayed, as the city contends. center_img “The word ‘include’ it’s hard to imagine that there is going to be a long trial over it, but that’s the reason why we’re here,” Theodora said in his opening statement. “One word in an 80-page document.” Theodora said Disney specifically refused a request to write Anaheim Angels into the contract because the entertainment giant wanted to maintain “creative flexibility” for future owners and itself. Theodora also made the distinction between the team’s name and Moreno’s right to market the team any way he chooses. He said the contract explicitly states that Disney and now Moreno have control over the Angels’ marketing, sales, pricing and operating procedures. Theodora said the Angels had been losing money for years and Moreno decided an overhaul of the Angels’ brand was crucial. “The brand of the Angels when Arte bought it was in disarray. … He said, ‘We’re keeping the red uniforms and we’re going to focus like a laser beam on the brand. We’re going to make the brand simple,”’ Theodora said. “Arte and Arte alone is responsible for the success or failure of this team. If the team fails, no one’s going to call the city of Anaheim.” Moreno, who was present in court Friday with his family, has said he changed the name to make the most of the Angels’ location in the nation’s second-largest media market. He said using Los Angeles in the name would attract more sponsorships, advertising and broadcast contracts. Moreno, who is expected to testify during the trial, had no comment on Friday’s proceedings. The Angels began play in 1961 as the Los Angeles Angels, becoming the California Angels when the team moved from Los Angeles to Anaheim in 1966. The name was changed to the Anaheim Angels in 1997 by Disney after it bought the team. At least a dozen fans attended the first day of the trial, which was held in one of the court’s largest courtrooms to accommodate the crowd. Sergio Lopez, 33, said he took some time off from his job as a marketing assistant to hear the opening statements because he couldn’t understand Moreno’s logic. “Los Angeles has always been our crosstown rival. It’s like, what’s going on?” said Lopez, who wore a red T-shirt bearing an anti-L.A. logo. “Arte needs to honor the contract.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Obama praises SA’s Aids leadership

first_img1 July 2013 US President Barack Obama has praised South Africa for leading the way in tackling HIV/Aids and in so doing paving the way for a brighter future for the country’s people. Obama, who is on a three-nation tour of Africa, visited the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation Youth Centre in Cape Town on Sunday during a jam-packed visit which included a meeting with President Jacob Zuma on Saturday in Pretoria. “South Africa obviously has faced a heavy burden from HIV as well as other diseases – tuberculosis, most recently. But the great news is that South Africa is now leading the way in caring for its citizens, in paving the way for a brighter future for the South African people and their families.” Obama said that because of the work being done on the ground, and with the backing of a partnership between the United States and South Africa – a model which has been duplicated across the continent – there was the possibility of achieving an Aids-free generation. While South Africa had done terrific work, Obama said he was proud that the United States had been a major partner on this issue through the President’s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief (Pepfar). “We’ve seen more than $3.7-billion in supporting South Africa’s efforts to combat HIV and Aids. “Together, we’re investing in building South Africa’s capacity to manage a national response to HIV and Aids. The South African government is showing leadership up and down the line.” Obama said the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation Youth Centre was a wonderful example of the transition from receiving US government support through Pepfar to independent funding that continues to secure the health of Africa’s next generation. Obama met with counsellors and outreach workers from the centre and said it was because of their work that there had been a reduction in the stigma around testing on HIV/Aids and greater education around prevention. He said he had seen treatment that allowed people to manage HIV and live long and productive lives. Tutu thanked Obama for the contribution that Pepfar had made in the struggle against TB, HIV/Aids and malaria, not just in South Africa but in other parts of Africa.

I don’t know,” said Compton during his post-game press conference Wednesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.Victolero, who accused Compton of calling the referees’ attention after Game 2, hit back saying the Alaska coach doesn’t have the right to make calls during the game. Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting “Both players are only being physical, there’s nothing wrong with that,” said Victolero. “Still coaches cannot decide on what’s a foul.

FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualifiers: Doungel Scores in Injury Time to Help India Draw With Afghanistan

first_img AfghanistanFIFA 2022 World Cup QualifiersfootballIndia First Published: November 14, 2019, 10:17 PM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak. Follow News18.com on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. Dushanbe (Tajikistan): India escaped with a 1-1 draw after an injury-time goal saved them the blushes against lower-ranked Afghanistan in their FIFA World Cup Qualifier match on Thursday.The result meant the 106-ranked India remained winless in their qualifying campaign so far. When the visitors seemed headed for their second defeat, substitute Seiminlen Doungel (90+3) provided India with a lifeline, outjumping his markers to head one into the far post.Afghanistan had taken the lead through Zelfagar Nazary’s strike (45+1), putting India on the backfoot.India remained at the fourth position in Group E with three points from four matches, while Afghanistan continued to be on the third with four points.Starting the away game, being played in extremely cold conditions at the Central Republican Stadium, on a bright note, India conceded a goal in the first half’s injury time (45+1).Afghanistan went into lead after a fine move saw David Najem play a square ball to Zelfagar Nazary at the centre of the box, and the mid-fielder’s attempt breached the Indian defence before finding the back of the net.It wasn’t really a home match for Afghanistan either, but wins here against Cambodia and Bangladesh, followed by draws with Tajikistan and Jordan have given them much-needed confidence ahead of the clash against Igor Stimac’s 106-ranked India.And the 149-ranked Afghanistan carried that confidence into the game on a chilly evening when the temperature dropped to nine degree celsius.The hosts looked the better of the two sides in the first half and the goal, in the added time of first session, was not inappropriate.On and off, Afghanistan managed to put pressure on the Indian defence manned by Mandar Rao Desai, Adil Khan, Rahul Bheke and Pritam Kotal. With their enterprise, the likes of striker Ahmad Omran and mid-fielder Faysal Shayesteh kept India on their toes, forcing Bheke and Adil to make a few clearances in the first quarter.India looked to take on the opposition but they could not create any clear chances, and the couple of half chances in the opening minutes failed to test the Afghan custodian.There was a change straightaway for India after the break as Stimac substituted Mandar with Farukh Choudhary.The visitors showed urgency and looked desperate for an equaliser. They had a chance in the 58th minute but skipper Sunil Chhetri’s header off a cross from right back Pritam Kotal was saved by Azizi. At the other end, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu made a diving save.While he will be disappointed to end the match in a stalemate, Stimac’s decision to bring in Doungel in place of Kotal paid dividends.Stimac made three changes to the line-up that drew against Bangladesh last month, starting with Kotal, Brandon Fernandes and and Pronay Halder in place of Anas Edathodika, Anirudh Thapa and Manvir Singh. last_img read more

Azlan Shah Cup: India bounce back as Mandeep Singh shines in 4-3 win over Japan

first_imgMandeep Singh struck a hat-trick as India staged a strong comeback to beat Japan 4-3 in a league match of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament here on Wednesday.Mandeep Singh struck in the 45th, 51st and 58th minutes after defender Rupinder Pal Singh (sixth minute) had powered home a penalty corner to hand an early lead to India.Japan fought back through Kazuma Murata (10th minute), Heita Yoshihara (43rd minute) and Genki Mitani (45th minute).Mandeep thus became the third player to score a hat-trick in the tournament after the Australian pair of Trent Mitton and Tom Craig.India now have seven points from four matches. They had started their campaign with a 2-2 draw with title contenders Britain in the opening match of the tournament.They had then defeated New Zealand 3-1 before going down by a similar margin to favourites Australia on Tuesday.India will now take on hosts Malaysia in their last match of the league stage on Friday.It was a fast paced match which saw an aggressive India enjoy the bigger share of ball possession while Japan relied on speedy counter-attacks.To their credit, the spirited Japanese took the lead twice but the Indians did well to stage comebacks on both occasions.Despite being the higher rated team, the Indians struggled to contain their opponents and their defence was repeatedly caught on the wrong foot by the fast counter-attacks by the Japanese.Indian coach Roelant Oltmans will also be worried by the poor penalty corner conversion rate. The Indians got five penalty corners and barring the first one, the rest were wasted.There was plenty of action in the first 15 minutes with India putting Japan on the backfoot by constantly attacking them and making space in the penalty circle.It was Rupinder who showed innovative dribbling skills to penetrate the circle and take a shot at the goal in the initial minutes of the first quarter but he was slightly off target with the shot going wide. But he made up almost immediately when Talwinder Singh — who was playing his 50th international match — won India their first penalty corner. Rupinder improvised on the injunction by Sardar Singh to fire the ball into the top left of the goal giving Japan goalkeeper Suguro Shimmoto little chance to react.But Japan were quick to hit back when Masaki Ohashi set up their first goal with a square pass to Murata who deflected the ball past Indian custodian Akash Chikte. India had an opportunity to regain the lead when they won a penalty corner in the dying minutes of the first quarter. But Harmanpreet Singh’s flick rebounded off a Japan defender. Though Affan Yousuf found the rebound and took a shot on goal, his attempt went wide. India dominated ball possession to keep the pressure on Japan in the second quarter. Though they won a penalty corner in the 26th minute, Rupinder’s flick went wide.India were quick to get off the block in the third quarter. Rupinder did well to assist forward S.V. Sunil who made space in the circle to attempt a field goal. But the Japanese defenders made the task tough for the experienced Sunil who couldn’t make a strong enough connect to the ball. Heita Yoshihara was the hero of the third quarter for Japan as he came up with a speedy dribble to carry the ball from the half way line and beat Indian defender Gurinder Singh to score a sensational goal at the far post to give Japan a 2-1 lead.But India equalised when Mandeep claimed a dramatic goal when he touched the ball assisted by Harmanpreet Singh to deflect it into the post. Japan reclaimed the lead in the final minute of the third quarter when they again beat the Indian defenders and Mitani found the target.India won a crucial penalty corner in the 46th minute, but Japan goalkeeper Suguro Shimmoto did well to pad away a fiercely struck dragflick by Rupinder. However, the Indians held their nerve, came up with good counter attacking skills and fought back to level terms for the second time in the match when Mandeep scored his second goal with a perfect deflection of Talwinder’s assist from the baseline. Mandeep won a penalty corner soon after Sardar Singh showcased brilliant dribbling skills to find space in the circle. However, defender Harmanpreet Singh fired wide from back-to-back penalty corners.The final few minutes saw tense, end to end action with both teams keeping up a frenetic pace. But Mandeep clinched the issue for India with a fierce reverse hit after an assist by Rupinder.advertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

Prince Michael Suggests Aggressive Enforcement of Seat Belt Law

first_imgHis Royal Highness, Prince Michael of Kent, has suggested that aggressive enforcement of the seat belt law could assist in further improving road safety in Jamaica.He pointed out that the use of safety belts and helmets is one of the most basic ways of improving road safety in any country. The Prince was speaking during a Round Table discussion with representatives of the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing and the National Road Safety Council (NRSC), following a tour of the National Works Agency’s Traffic Management Centre in Kingston, on April 17. The tour and discussion formed part of the itinerary for the Prince’s five-day working visit to the island, from April 15 to 19, as special guest of the NRSC, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary.Citing the case of Costa Rica, he noted that enforcement of the seat belt law in that country had made a significant impact on its usage among motorists, and in turn, road safety. He informed that the country was awarded the Prince Michael Road Safety honour as a result of its achievements in improving seat belt compliance.“The reason I gave them an award is because, finally, 20 years after the (seat belt) law had been introduced, they actually got around to enforcement. So, it can be done and if Costa Rica can do it, I’m sure you can do it,” he said.Responding to Prince Michael’s suggestion,Executive Director at the NRSC, Paula Fletcher, said that the Council, and other stakeholders, including the Road Safety Unit, have been working to change the culture of seat belt usage in Jamaica, through the use of public education campaigns.She informed that these campaigns have seen very favourable results over the years.“We are aware of the challenges with seat belt usage, and from time to time, have had various programmes,” she said.Mrs. Fletcher informed that in conjunction with the NRSC’s 20th anniversary celebrations, the Council has launched a road safety campaign, in collaboration with Olympic gold medallist, Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce, with one of the main messages being the promotion of seat belt usage. The Prince is the Royal Patron for the Commission for Global Road Safety and Patron of the non-profit organisation, Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). Both organisations have been leading advocates in the fight to reduce road traffic injuries and deaths.He is also Patron for the Institute of the Motor Industry, as well as founder and patron of the Prince Michael Road Safety Award Scheme. Additionally, he is President of the Institute of Road Safety Officers and is an Honorary Fellow at the Institute of Highways and Transportation.The Prince, who arrived in the island on April 15, is on a five-day visit as the special guest of the NRSC, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary. He will depart the island on Friday, April 19. Also in attendance were: Minister of Transport, Dr. the Hon. Omar Davies; Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry, Hon. Dr. Morais Guy; State Minister in the Ministry, Hon. Richard Azan; Vice Chairman and Convener of the NRSC, Earl Jarrett; and Co-ordinator of the Below 240 Programme, Victor Anderson.By Athaliah Reynolds-Baker, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

CID to take charge of Burdwan serial killer case soon

first_imgKolkata: State Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is likely to take charge of the Burdwan serial killer case soon. Since the arrest of the accused Kamruzzaman Sarkar, CID sleuths have been keeping track of the case.During 2013, after several women were murdered, CID took charge of the investigation. A few persons were arrested on suspicion but were later found to have no connection with the case. As the case took a new turn after Kamruzzaman’s arrest, CID sleuths are following the developments. Sources informed that a team of CID may visit Kalna to interrogate Kamruzzaman in connection with previous cases.

Bibi informed that she did not doubt him as he used to behave normally at home. “If he has done even one murder, Kamruzzaman should be given capital punishment as it will be a lesson for other criminals. My request to the government is to help me as I have three children to raise,” said Bibi. According to sources, Kamruzzaman had been arrested earlier on two occasions for having connection with two theft cases a few years ago. Following interrogation on Tuesday, sleuths came to know about two jewellery shops where Kamruzzaman had sold the looted ornaments. On Wednesday, the shop owners were interrogated regarding the cases. Sources informed that they admitted that Kamruzzaman had sold some gold ornaments to them.last_img read more

UNbacked maternal and child health drive kicks off in Sierra Leone

27 April 2010The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Sierra Leonean Government have embarked today on a new initiative to provide free health care for pregnant women, lactating mothers and children under five across the West African nation. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Sierra Leonean Government have embarked today on a new initiative to provide free health care for pregnant women, lactating mothers and children under five across the West African nation. Sierra Leone, which ranked 180 out of 182 countries in the 2009 Human Development Index (HDI), has been facing serious challenges in the delivery of and access to health-care services, UNICEF’s Christiane Berthiaume told reporters in Geneva.In 2008, the under-five mortality rate was 140 per 1,000 live births and the maternal mortality ratio was 857 per 100,000 live births. The lifetime risk of a woman dying from complications of pregnancy and childbirth was one in eight, Ms. Berthiaume added. The Free Health Care Initiative seeks to redress this situation by boosting access to services and ensuring that mothers and young children receive the care they need. In addition, the agency plans to reach 250,000 pregnant women and lactating mothers, as well as 1 million children under five, with essential medicines to enhance maternal and child health at all Government facilities, with the help of an $8.8 million contribution. read more

Number of Ivorian refugees in Liberia tops 25000 – UN agency

11 January 2011The United Nations refugee agency said today that there are now some 25,000 Ivorian refugees in neighbouring Liberia, with around 600 people arriving daily after fleeing the post-electoral crisis in their homeland. The United Nations refugee agency said today that there are now some 25,000 Ivorian refugees in neighbouring Liberia, with around 600 people arriving daily after fleeing the post-electoral crisis in their homeland.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has started work on a new camp for refugees in the eastern Liberian town of Bahn which will be able to initially house about 18,000 people.“The camp is urgently needed to better protect the refugees and to ease pressure on Liberian communities that have been hosting people in some 23 villages along the border with Côte d’Ivoire,” UNHCR spokesperson Adrian Edwards told reporters in Geneva.The political crisis in Côte d’Ivoire began after incumbent president Laurent Gbagbo refused to step down after being defeated by his challenger, Alassane Ouattara, in the November run-off election.The polls were meant to help reunify the West African nation, which was split by civil war in 2002 into a Government-controlled south and a rebel-held north. Instead, has sparked fears of a return to civil war and has led to a new crisis, marked by incitement to hatred and violence, human rights violations, attacks against civilians as well as peacekeepers serving with the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI), and increasing displacement.In addition to those that fled to Liberia, some 16,000 people have been forced to leave their villages and take refuge in the towns of Duékoué, Man and Danané in western Côte d’Ivoire, according to UNHCR. Calm has returned to Duékoué in the past three days, which is allowing UNHCR and other humanitarian agencies to assist the displaced.Cote read more

Apple says 14B EU tax order defies reality and common sense

LUXEMBOURG — The European Union’s order to Apple to pay 13 billion euros ($14 billion) in back taxes “defies reality and common sense,” the U.S. firm said as the two sides sparred in a case key to the EU’s crackdown on sweetheart deals to multinationals.The iPhone maker is appealing to Europe’s second highest court to overturn the European Commission’s 2016 ruling that it pay the record sum to Ireland.Ireland, whose economy has benefited from investment by multinational companies attracted by low tax rates, is also challenging the Commission’s decision.Apple also accused the Commission of using its powers to combat state aid “to retrofit changes to national law,” in effect trying to change the international tax system and in the process creating legal uncertainty for businesses.The EU executive dismissed the arguments, saying it was not seeking to police international tax laws and accused Ireland of not having done its homework when assessing Apple’s taxes.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Apple’s arguments at the General Court, Europe’s second-highest, came after the EU executive in 2016 said the tech giant benefited from illegal state aid due to two Irish tax rulings which artificially reduced its tax burden for over two decades.The case could make or break European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager’s campaign which has also led to action against Starbucks, Fiat, Engie , Amazon and others.Apple’s Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri led a six-strong delegation to the court where a panel of five judges will hear arguments over two days.“The Commission contends that essentially all of Apple’s profits from all of its sales outside the Americas must be attributed to two branches in Ireland,” Apple’s lawyer Daniel Beard told the court.He said the fact the iPhone, the iPad, the App Store, other Apple products and services and key intellectual property rights were developed in the United States, and not in Ireland, showed the flaws in the Commission’s case.“The branches’ activities did not involve creating, developing or managing those rights. Based on the facts of this case, the primary line defies reality and common sense,” Beard said.“The activities of these two branches in Ireland simply could not be responsible for generating almost all of Apple’s profits outside the Americas.”Beard dismissed criticism of the 0.005% tax rate paid by Apple’s main Irish unit in 2014, which was cited by the Commission in its decision, saying the regulator was just seeking “headlines by quoting tiny numbers.”‘PERFECTLY IRRELEVANT’Paying an average global tax rate of 26%, Apple has said it is the largest taxpayer worldwide and is now paying around 20 billion euros in U.S. taxes on the same profits that the Commission said should have been taxed in Ireland.In its current financial quarter, Apple expects revenue of $61-64 billion and a gross margin of 37.5-38.5%.Commission lawyer Richard Lyal said Apple’s argument that all its intellectual property-related activities take place in the United States was inconsequential.“To a large extent that is perfectly correct and perfectly irrelevant,” he said, adding that Ireland was taxing Apple’s Irish subsidiaries, not the group nor Apple Inc.He said Ireland had failed to examine the functions performed by Apple’s Irish units, the risks assumed and the assets used by the subsidiaries.“They simply accepted an arbitrary method proposed by the Apple Ireland subsidiaries. That in itself gives rise to a presumption of a special deal, exceptionally advantageous treatment. It is clear that the tax authorities made no assessment in 1991.”He said the Commission has no hidden agenda. Apple CEO trumps Trump, reframing his name game on Twitter Apple, Goldman Sachs start issuing Apple Cards to consumers iPhone repairs now available at all U.S. Best Buy stores, Apple says “What is the case not about? Not about the Commission as policeman of international taxation, not about making sure tax is paid somewhere, though that would be a nice idea, not about resolving tax mismatches,” Lyal said.Ireland said it had been the subject of entirely unjustified criticism and that the Apple tax case was due to a mismatch between the Irish and U.S. tax systems.“The Commission’s decision is fundamentally flawed,” its lawyer Paul Gallagher told the court.Luxembourg, told by the EU to recover millions of euros in back taxes from Amazon, Engie and Fiat, is backing Ireland. Poland and the EFTA (European Free Trade Aassociation) Surveillance Authority support the Commission.The court is expected to rule in the coming months, with the losing party likely to appeal to the EU Court of Justice and a final judgment could take several years.The joint Apple cases are T-778/16 Ireland v Commission and T-892/16 Apple Sales International and Apple Operations Europe v Commission. read more

Goodman prof honoured for research on female entrepreneurs

A co-authored study examining female entrepreneurs in Egypt has earned a Goodman School of Business professor a top award at a prominent international conference.Management Professor Eugene Kaciak’s study won the Best Paper Award out of 280 entries at the Global Innovation and Knowledge Academy conference in Lisbon, Portugal, June 30.Co-authored with Dianne Welsh (University of North Carolina-Greensboro, N.C.), Rania Shamah (Suez University, Egypt) and Frank Hoy (Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Mass.), the study looks at what factors contribute to the success of female entrepreneurs in Egypt and how the country can support them.Since 2013, Kaciak has worked closely with Welsh to study female entrepreneurs in many countries including Sudan, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Morocco, Turkey, Brazil and China.An internationally recognized scholar in entrepreneurship, Welsh has a passion for studying female entrepreneurs and saw the benefit of partnering with Kaciak, an expert in data analysis, in reviewing the data she collected.Kaciak, who joined Goodman in 1989 after earning an MSc and a PhD in Economics at Warsaw School of Economics and a Doctor Habilitatus degree at Kozminski University, was able to use a sophisticated analysis technique for the study that he has used in the past for categorical data.In previous studies, he found that both human (age and education, training and skill level) and social capital (connections, relationships and familial support) play a role in entrepreneurial success.However, Kaciak’s team found that in the context of Egypt, a country that has experienced social unrest, human capital alone influences an entrepreneurial firm’s performance.“Normally, both capitals matter in terms of affecting performance, but in Egypt, I didn’t find that,” Kaciak said.“I found that human capital does matter but not social capital. It means that in this time of revolution and turbulence, where people are forced to move, they take their education with them but not their connections. We found out that these connections don’t matter and they are not related to performance.”To provide the best support to their entrepreneurs, Kaciak’s team recommends that governments should prioritize investments in education over fostering entrepreneurial networks.“I would say to authorities in countries which have negatively experienced social unrest, revolution movement and wars, authorities should focus on women entrepreneurs’ human capital, investing in education, management skills and so on,” Kaciak said. “Do not think about investing in social capital because it would not have an impact.”Kaciak’s research has followed the entrepreneurship theme since 2013.His most recent paper, focused on female entrepreneurs in Brazil, found it better  for women to borrow money to start a business rather than using personal savings. It also found entrepreneurs should only include family members in their operation if those individuals have been involved from the beginning of the business.Another recent paper looks at how different levels of economic development affect female entrepreneurs.Inspired by numbers and the stories they can tell, Kaciak said he’s become hooked on the topic of female entrepreneurship since beginning his work with Welsh.Since 2013, he has contributed to 13 published papers and five conference proceedings.His impressive track record in the 2014-15 academic year in particular, with several papers published all within the theme of female entrepreneurs, has earned Kaciak a departmental research award from Goodman’s Finance, Operations and Information Systems department this month. The award will be presented at a research celebration event on Aug. 24 at 4 p.m. in the Scotiabank Atrium of the Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex.This is the first in a series of six stories that feature Goodman’s research award winners. read more

18th UGOL ROSSII MINING in Russian coal capital Novokuznetsk

first_imgJune 7-10 will see this event, which International Mining is attending, have a big impact on the Russian coal industry. One focus will be on mine safety. After a 9% economic downturn in 2009, Russia’s coal production showed a clear upward trend again in 2010. During the first nine months of the year output increased by 8%. By 2030 the Russian government is planning to have doubled its current coal production capacity. The number one among coal-mining areas is the Kuznetsk Basin which is estimated to have over 733,000 Mt of  coal in its deposits. Moreover, according to gtai (Germany Trade and Invest), the Kuzbass region is right at the top of the Russian Federation in terms of production. Nearly 60% of all coal comes from the oblast’ (region) of Kemerovo where 110 mining companies and 35 coal processing companies are based. Five deposits were newly developed in 2010, a new processing plant was completed and 1,200 new jobs were created.It is precisely here, on the central square of the ‘coal capital’ Novokuznetsk that about 500 mining suppliers from 22 countries will be taking part in UGOL ROSSII & MINING (compared with 485 from 20 countries in 2010). In addition to well-known names from the Russian Federation, 150 international exhibitors will be coming from a range of different countries, including Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, France, the UK, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Japan, South Korea, the USA and China. There will also be joint stands from the federal state of Saarland in Germany, the UK, Poland and the Czech Republic – ideal conditions for cultivating existing customer contacts and developing new market shares in Russia.One highly topical emphasis at the moment is the issue of health and safety. Innovative technologies and know-how are more in demand than ever before. The Russian government has stepped up its health and safety stipulations, and nearly all companies are investing in the expansion of their capacities. In the Kuznetsk Basin alone companies are planning to invest double-digit millions in health & safety in the near future. Under the planned development activities this total is set to rise considerably over the next few years.UGOL ROSSII & MINING 2011 will include a special show entitled Safety & Security, where some 80 companies will be demonstrating personal protection equipment as well as systems and machinery for the early identification of explosive gases and the defence against such hazards.Organiser say Messe Düsseldorf says “German companies in Russia are optimistic about the future again. This is borne out by the latest economic climate poll taken by the German-Russian Chamber of Commerce (AHK) and the German Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations (over 130 companies). Nearly two thirds of companies in the survey are beginning to see a tangible recovery of the Russian economy. A year ago, this view was only taken by 12%. [Now] 87% are confident of a further economic upturn in 2011, while none of the companies believe in a return of the crisis in Russia.” www.ugol-mining.comlast_img read more

Decision in Starr murder case will take two weeks

first_imgA decision on whether to dismiss a first-degree murder charge against Matthew E. Starr, accused of robbing and killing his roommate in February 2012, is expected in the next two weeks.Clark County Superior Court Judge Rich Melnick said he needs time to research case law and review the facts of the case before ruling on the motion by Starr’s attorney, John Henry Browne, to dismiss the charge because detectives put an informant in Starr’s jail cell.Starr is accused of robbing Joshua R. Schenk and shooting him twice after they went target shooting near Vancouver Lake with Starr’s two friends. Starr said Schenk was first shot accidentally when one of the other men slipped. He said he then shot Schenk in the back of the head to put him out of his misery. After Schenk died, his friend Zachary Mattson allegedly helped Starr drag the body to a resting place about 4 or 5 feet away, and cover it with a plastic tarp, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in court against Mattson. Charges against Mattson — including rendering criminal assistance, tampering with evidence, making false statements, obstruction of a law enforcement officer and intimidating a witness — were dropped in February pending further investigation, said Senior Deputy Prosecutor Kasey Vu, but could be filed against him again the future.last_img read more

Goa to ban locals from casinos

first_img“As a policy, Goans will not be permitted to enter the casino playing areas. Only visiting tourists shall be permitted,” Parrikar said. “A mechanism in this regard will be put in place once the gaming commissioner is appointed and appropriate rules for regulation shall be formulated.”The ban would apply to Goa’s six offshore floating casinos although there were conflicting reports over the weekend as to whether locals will be allowed to enter the dozen onshore casinos located inside five-star hotels.The government of Goa has stated its intention to relocate the state’s offshore casinos from the Mandovi River to designated land-based casino zones but is yet to find a suitable location. Nevertheless, Parrikar reiterated on Friday the government’s intention to identify designated zones – promising Goa’s three offshore operators they will be issued with new casino licenses provided they agree within 12 months of the new policy being declared to relocate. Each would be given four years to complete the move.“Licenses for casino operations being granted in the designated zone can be considered for a tenure of 10 to 15 years taking into account the huge investment required for such projects,” Parrikar added.India’s biggest casino operator Delta Corp Ltd, which operates three of Goa’s six offshore casinos, has already thrown its support behind shifting operations to land due to capacity restraints and access difficulties on the water. RelatedPosts Goan locals will be banned from entering the state’s casinos from 2019 under a new casino policy to be unveiled this month, according to Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.Addressing the Legislative Assembly on Friday, Parrikar revealed his plans to implement the ban by January, with a gaming commissioner to be appointed in December to enforce the new casino regulations.

Growing Asian market calls for more seats

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: S.P Qantas announcing its plans to operate A380 services to and from Hong Kong acknowledges that Asian markets are vital to the Australian tourism industry, said Australian Tourism Export Council managing director Felicia Mariani.Recent data has indicated a 22 percent growth in the China market over the last 12 months and the decision to commence A380 services to and from Hong Kong next year is a “great investment” for tourism, Ms Mariani said.“The A380 service will not only provide a premium airline offering to a highly discerning market, but it will also add around 20,000 seats a year to this important route from Asia,” Ms Mariani said.Ms Mariani explains with the airline currently operating 12, A380’s in their fleet, Australia will from the 15th January next year be in a good position to embark on fierce global competition.“These new services will provide additional capacity on key growth routes for Australia in the all-important Eastern markets.  In addition, this new capacity provides daily direct services from Melbourne to London (via Singapore) and Melbourne to Los Angeles.”Ms Mariani added these direct daily flights from Melbourne along with the increased capacity announced by Qantas for the Sydney/Dallas route shows there is demand from these markets.“The increased capacity will allow us to respond with competitive airfares and easy access to our destination.”Ms Mariani said despite the recent slowdown from markets like North America and the UK reported for the middle of this year, there was still over 450,000 visitors from the United States and 615,000 visitors from the UK arriving into Australia.The role for the Industry now is to leverage these new opportunities and turn the interest and awareness to travel to Australia into visitation, Ms Mariani added.last_img read more

has now been followed up with a letter to affiliated units they firmed up on three moves to stem age fraud A player can play in U-19 world cup only once a player who comes into BCCI fold at U-19 level can only play two years in that age-category tournaments and need to produce at least three documents as age proof and those who enter at U-16 level need to undergo a bone age determination test The BCCI currently does TW3 test (Tanner-Whitehouse) a skeletal maturity test to determine age at U-16 level However the board does not employ the TW3 test at the Under-19 level relying on documents It was a decision taken last November as it was deemed that the TW3 tests work best for U-16 category There are two age categories associated with the BCCI – the U-16 which is the formal entry level for cricketers and the U-19 The board has had to reiterate that the birth certificates have to be genuine and have to be officially registered within a year of birth In a letter dated July 1 2016 accessed by The Indian Express BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke writes: “There are some cricketers who enter at the under 19 age group level Such players should submit at least three documents to support their date of birth if they are to be considered to participate in the under 19 tournament directly without having entered the BCCI circuit at the under 16 level You are requested to discourage cricketers who submit birth certificates issued just a few years before As per the Government of India rules the birth has to be registered with in one year of the birth of the child” The authenticity of the certificates have often caused headaches in the cricketing fraternity Different state associations have often landed in trouble with them Some like the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) which has many cricketers migrating from different states face a tougher challenge than some of the others MCA joint secretary PV Shetty says that there have been many cases where players have migrated but don’t possess any birth certificate Shetty listed some of the associated problems “In a state like Uttar Pradesh the schools don’t ask for any birth certificate which is not the case in Mumbai where parents will have to submit copy of birth certificate to respective schools There has been cases earlier where players have played for Mumbai but didn’t have birth certificate MCA has now strictly asked for birth certificate or else we don’t pick Some got it but some couldn’t In UP a letter from mere Pradhan of the village is the proof of birth certificate but we don’t accept that” Shetty said Meanwhile the BCCI secretary Shirke has written in his letter that those players who enter the BCCI junior tournament at the U-19 level will be allowed to play in the under 19 tournament of the BCCI for maximum of two years Shirke also re-stressed the TW3 testing method for U-16 “Under 16 is the formal entry point for players participating in the BCCI junior tournament and they have to undergo age verification process to be eligible The age verification process involves bone rating-TW3 method Only those who pass the bone rating are eligible to play in the under 16 tournaments” For all the

50 lakh they prefer to go in them than take a cab So our customers still prefer us” The drivers can be booked either for pick-up and drop or just for drop While they provide you a comfortable drive home they themselves have a hard time “Our drops are mostly in the late hours by when trains stop running So we end up taking auto-rickshaws and paying a huge sum to return home The money is not
