Inspired cuts losses in second quarter

first_img Email Address Casino & games Inspired Entertainment has reported a year-on-year increase in revenue for the second quarter, while the company also cut net loss by 94.5% in the period. Revenue in the three months to March 31 amounted to $37.5m (€31.6m), which is 33.5 % more than $28.1m in the corresponding quarter last year. Net operating loss was cut by 60.1% from $2.1m to $900,00, while net loss also improved from $9.1m to $500,000. Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) increased 43.4% year-on-year to $12.4m, while net loss per diluted share was cut from $0.45 to $0.02. Lorne Weil, executive chairman of Inspired, said: “Our second quarter results were strong, with our adjusted EBITDA margins growing from 30.8% in Q2 2017 to 33.2% in Q2 2018; this shows that we are realising scale benefits. “Our sustained growth in Greece and our recent virtual sports contract win with the Pennsylvania Lottery demonstrate that our growth prospects are accelerating as our products gain traction in new jurisdictions. “Our existing virtual sports geographies continue to yield growth opportunities as well, with expanded deployments including in Greece, Italy, Scandinavia, Ireland, and the UK. “We also expect that our previously announced 1st Down Virtual Football game will launch with US gaming and lottery customers in the middle of 2018. “In mobile, we have launched our RGS with multiple new customers, including BetVictor and most recently SNAI. “Growth momentum in our business is strong across multiple dimensions.” The results announcement come after Inspired last week confirmed a number of changes to its senior management team, including the departure of Luke Alvarez as chief executive and president. The company formed the ‘Office of the Executive Chairman’, which will consist of executive chairman Lorne Weil; president and chief operating officer Brooks Pierce; executive vice-president and chief strategy officer Daniel Silvers; and executive vice-president and chief financial officer Stewart Baker.

Racing tipster rapped by ASA over irresponsible ad

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 29th November 2018 | By contenteditor ASA blasts Philip Murray for refusing to respond to charges regarding direct mailing Racing tipster rapped by ASA over irresponsible ad The UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has issued a reminder to betting tipsters to ensure that their advertising is socially responsible after upholding a complaint against horse racing specialist Philip Murray.A single complainant contacted the advertising regulator over a piece of direct mail promoting a text-based tipping service that was delivered in June 2018.The advert claimed to offer a “guaranteed, sure-fire way to literally CRUSH the bookies while exponentially growing your bankroll… and making betting on horse racing something ridiculously simple!”The mailing also posed the question: “Aren’t you sick and tired of constantly losing bet after bet? Isn’t it depressing that no matter what, you never achieve the profits you always hoped for?”It went on to claim that the service could overturn a downward trend in the individual’s betting, and suggested that winnings could be used to pay off the person’s mortgage or buy expensive cars.The mailing also referred to a special membership offer of £89 (€100/$114), saving the customer £411, and included a claim that if the consumer had joined in February 2018, they would have made profit on a number of winning horses list in the ad.The complainant challenged whether claims in the ad were misleading and could be substantiated, namely the claims to offer a “guaranteed, sure-fire way” of making money, as well as the claim about saving £411 by joining under the offer and the profit the customer would have made had they joined earlier.The ASA also noted that the claims about punters becoming depressed from losing bets, using winnings to pay off mortgages, and being able to turning around a “downward trend” in betting appeared to be socially irresponsible.As Philip Murray did not respond to enquiries from the ASA, the regulator came to its own assessment, raising concerns over the tipster’s lack of response and apparent disregard for the CAP Code. His failure to respond was in itself a breach of CAP Code (Edition 12) Rule 1.7, the watchdog added.The ASA said that as Peter Murray did not provide evidence to support the claims made in his mailing, it deemed them misleading and in breach of Code Rules 3.1 on misleading consumers and 3.7, relating to substantiation of statements made in advertising.In terms of the savings customers could make by taking advantage of the £89 offer, the ASA said there was no evidence the usual price of the product was £500. This again breached CAP Code rules 3.1 and 3.7.Philip Murray also failed to provide evidence that it has previously correctly selected and provided tips on winners listed in the direct mail. This, the ASA said, was further evidence of the ad’s claims being misleading.The regulator accepted that although tipsters are not licensed and therefore not subject to CAP Code rules on gambling, marketing communications should be prepared with a sense of responsibility to consumers and society.As such, the ASA took the references to a “sure-fire way to literally CRUSH the bookies” and “never fear, you can still join us and profit immediately” as linking gambling to achieving financial security. The ad’s claims of being able to end a customer’s losing streak and suggesting losses could cause depression, were taken by the regulator as targeting vulnerable people.“Because we considered that the ad targeted vulnerable gamblers who had not been winning and linked the tipping service to achieving financial security, we considered it to be socially irresponsible and therefore in breach of the Code,” the ASA said.In its ruling, the ASA said the ad must not appear again in its current form and also instructed Philip Murray to ensure future ads do not make savings claims, guarantee consumers would make a profit using the service or claim they had previously given successful tips, without giving the relevant evidence. In addition, the ASA told Philip Murray to ensure all future ads are prepared in a socially responsible way.Image: Paulcenter_img Topics: Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Marketing & affiliates Regions: UK & Ireland Email Addresslast_img read more

Jonny Wilkinson laces up for the first time in 3 years as he tries his hand at snow rugby in the French Alps

first_imgThursday Apr 11, 2019 Jonny Wilkinson laces up for the first time in 3 years as he tries his hand at snow rugby in the French Alps Jonny Wilkinson and Dimitri Yachvilli gave Snow Rugby a try recently, playing in a special game in the French Alps to mark 6 months to go until Rugby World Cup 2019. It was Wilkinson’s first return to playing since retiring three years ago. ADVERTISEMENTWhile there, both he and former French international Yachvilli offered up their thoughts on the upcoming showpiece tournament in Japan.Both players coached teams in the snow at the Land Rover Experience centre in La Plagne. Their teams played in front of The Webb Ellis Cup, to celebrate six months until the world’s third-largest sporting event kicks off in Japan.Wilkinson, the leading points-scorer in Rugby World Cup history, said: “I’ve played all over the world but can honestly say this was one of the most spectacular settings for a game I’ve ever experienced. It was fun to help coach the players against Dimitri’s team and let’s hope that come October, England will win the next edition of Le Crunch.“From a snowy mountain or a beach to the more traditional muddy field, rugby is all about the camaraderie, spirit, teamwork and respect among the players. There are no boundaries when it comes to rugby.”Wilkinson also spoke about Wales and their chances of success, Owen Farrell as England’s leader and says Ireland are still a dangerous team not to be underestimated.ADVERTISEMENTDimitri Yachvili, a finalist with France in 2011, said: “I’ve been lucky enough to play snow rugby in the past and its good fun. Playing half-way up a mountain is a special experience. The snow rugby players certainly go the extra mile in their commitment.”England and France last met at Rugby World Cup in 2011 in New Zealand, when eventual runners-up France won their quarter-final match-up. Wilkinson and Yachvili both played.The old foes will meet in October in their final pool match at International Stadium Yokohama.Yachvili said: “This is such an exciting moment in rugby history and Japan will be fantastic hosts, with a team who provided the talking point of Rugby World Cup 2015 – beating South Africa.”ADVERTISEMENTLand Rover is a proud Worldwide Partner of Rugby World Cup 2019 and has a heritage in supporting rugby at all levels from grassroots to elite.

Burning Bush Cowboy Church presents Ranch Rodeo

first_img Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “The events at a ranch rodeo are based on the daily activities that a cowboy would actually perform on a ranch,” Walker said. “One of the events is the sorting of cows. The cowboy draws a number and has to sort out the cow with that number and then go backwards from that number until all of the cows are sorted.”Walker said one of the most popular events is cow milking.“The cowboy has to catch the cow and milk it into a bottle,” he said. “The winner is the one who catches the most milk in the bottle.” By Blood Sugar Blaster Cowboys and/or cowgirls compete in teams of four to get the best times in each event.The Burning Bush Cowboy Church Ranch Rodeo will feature teams from Georgia, Florida and north Alabama as well as local teams.“The team that wins the Burning Bush Cowboy Church Ranch Rodeo will qualify to compete in the American Fellowship of Cowboy Churches Finals in Texas later this year,” Walker said.Burning Bush Cowboy Church is offering the Ranch Rodeo to the community admission- free.

A wizard solution to the productivity gap

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article A wizard solution to the productivity gapOn 26 Nov 2002 in Personnel Today With a cinematic visit to Hogwarts closely following Halloween once again,late autumn is officially the season of witches and warlocks. How fitting,therefore, that Patricia Hewitt has chosen this time of year to ask a businesswizard to break the spell that seems to curse every attempt to solve the UK’sproductivity problem. Michael Porter might not have the magical powers of Harry Potter, but theGovernment clearly hopes he will find something in the chamber oforganisational secrets to transform the performance of UK management. If the Harvard professor’s wizardry matches that of Hogwarts’ ProfessorDumbledore, he will find the key lies in unlocking the power of so-calledhigh-performance work practices. As CIPD-supported research shows, productive, high-performance organisationsoperate flat, goal-oriented management structures, with investment in people atevery level of the workforce set out as a strategic priority. Everyone in such organisations are made aware of who their customers are andwhat they want – and there is continual innovation in product and servicequality. Above all, these organisations recognise that people make thedifference and strive to ensure effective use of the full array of peoplemanagement practices. However, the UK’s fundamental problem is not so much failure to recognisethe core ingredients of high-performance working – the CIPD has beenhighlighting these for years – but how to mix them into a potent brew. Despitea plethora of research which demonstrates a clear pay off from job design,continuous appraisal, the use of autonomous team working, ongoing learning andperformance-related pay, fewer than one in five workplaces in the UK combinesuch practices effectively. Sceptics argue that this indicates an active rejection of the strategicimportance of the HR function, but this is a far too simplistic view. Usually,senior management is ill informed rather than indifferent when confronted withthe challenge of high-performance working. Interviews with senior executives in the CIPD’s Voices from the Boardroomshows that most are, at best, only dimly aware of recent research on peoplemanagement. And, organisations that appreciate the need for change often don’tknow what can be done or how to manage the process. This serious managementimplementation gap underlies the UK’s productivity gap. Over the next year, the CIPD will be placing increasing emphasis on turningknowledge into practice. Porter’s benchmarking study will provide an importantbackdrop to CIPD’s endeavour to place HR at the centre of the conversation onproductivity and performance. The result may not be a wizard wheeze – but the outcomecould prove to be pure magic for the UK economy. By John Philpott, Chief economist, CIPDlast_img read more

Wadham fail to declare war on Trinity

first_imgA motion to declare war on Trinity was proposed to the Wadham SU at its inaugural meeting. It called for a siege engine to “forcibly break down” Trinity’s gates, annex its lawn and fine Wadhamites inviting Trinitarians to College, among other state of war initiatives.Though Trinity is the historic rival of Balliol, Wadham SU’s Officer Report noted that the feud has “died down somewhat.”Joe Miles, Wadham’s SU officer and initiator of the war motion, concurred that, “I didn’t think Balliol was doing enough.”Moreover, Trinity’s recent expansion, which the Officer Report clarified as, “flaunting its obnoxiously large lawn in close proximity to the Wadham grounds,” has raised eyebrows among some of Wadham’s SU officers. As Miles noted, “I have long warned of the threat posed by Trinity to our way of life and our heritage, and I could not stand by and do nothing.”The war motion, however, failed to pass through Wadham’s SU committee.Anya Metzer, President of Wadham’s SU, stated that, “most of the SU felt that our time could be better spent on other projects and really by-and-large Trinity do not pose any immediate threat to the security of Wadham College.”Reflecting on the motion’s defeat, Miles stated, “Wadham has opted not to take a military stance, and I have since accepted I was wrong to initiate hostilities since diplomacy would be a much more preferable option.”He went on, “I would be interested in speaking to the chair of Trinity’s JCR and seeing if we can resolve our differences amicably.”Meanwhile, news of Wadham’s war motion was met with extreme skepticism at Trinity. Kyran Schmidt, Trinity JCR’s Publicity and Campaign officer, remarked, “Wadham are a bunch of dorks.”Similarly, an undergraduate from Trinity stated, “Wadhamites are an inspiration for birth control.”last_img read more

Jenkins condemns ICE restrictions as University joins Harvard, MIT lawsuit

first_imgEditor’s Note: This story was last updated 11:07 p.m. July 13.University President Fr. John Jenkins officially filed an amicus curiae brief Monday in support of a lawsuit by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to block Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) decision to expel international students who attend universities exclusively online for the fall semester.This came after a Thursday announcement to do so after Jenkins described the policy as an “inhospitable, even hostile, approach” in a letter to Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf.“Having already overcome the hurdles of being accepted to an American university, and authorized to travel and live here, foreign students now have to grapple with the uncertainty of being expelled from the country simply because of the way instruction is delivered,” Jenkins said in the letter ThursdayWhile the new regulations from ICE do not currently affect Notre Dame students returning to campus in the fall, international students would not be exempt if their universities were forced online due to a COVID-19 outbreak.According to the letter, about 1,400 international students are enrolled at Notre Dame each year. When the University sent students home in March, the University was able to accommodate over 100 stranded students.Jenkins said international students were “an essential part of [the Notre Dame] campus community.”“They make lifelong friends here. They become future colleagues of faculty and alumni. We embrace our visitors. We don’t chase them away,” Jenkins said. “No harm and much good would result if Immigration and Customs Enforcement took a similar approach.”Tags: Harvard, ICE, MIT, Secretary of Homeland Security, University President Fr.

The same forces that kept Vermont’s unemployment rate at the lowest in the region last month appear to remain in August. A strong summer youth employment program, continued growth in the Health Care & Social Assistance sector and a steady Leisure and Hospitality sector. Vermont’s observed August seasonally adjusted employment, unemployment levels and unemployment rate estimates were not statistically different from July values.  For comparison purposes, the US seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for July was 9.7 percent, up three-tenths of a point from the revised August rate of 9.4 percent. Unemployment rates for Vermont’s 17 labor market areas ranged from 3.6 percent in Hartford to 8.3 percent in Rutland.  Local labor market area unemployment rates are not seasonally adjusted. For comparison, the August unadjusted unemployment rate for Vermont was 6.1 percent, down four-tenths of a point from July 2009 and up 2.0 points from a year ago.  The August unadjusted unemployment rate estimate for Vermont was not statistically different from the July rate.“Unemployment remained at 6.8 percent, reflecting the same forces that were at work in July,” said Patricia Moulton Powden, Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor. “Strong summer youth employment, growth in the Health Care & Social Assistance sector and a steady Leisure and Hospitality sector kept our unemployment rate relatively low as compared to recent months.”Job GrowthHistorically, job growth between July and August has been variable – some years showing small growth, others a small decline.  Before seasonal adjustment, Total Non-Farm (TNF) jobs grew by 250 or 0.1% over the month. Annual unadjusted job growth fell by 11,150 or -3.7% – a very slight improvement over July.  . Leisure & Hospitality, (+400 or +1.3%) and Health care & Social Assistance, (+200 or 0.4%) showed the largest month to month growth. No sector showed significant declines.When seasonally adjusted, August job levels were essentially flat, (-100 or -0.0%) to July. The largest growth was seen in the Health Care & Social Assistance sector (+400 or +0.9%).  The largest job losses were seen in Professional & Business Services, (-300 or -1.4%).  All other sectors were quiet.The preliminary estimates of nonfarm jobs for August, and the revisions to the estimates for November 2008 through July 2009, incorporate substantive changes made in the Current Employment Survey estimation procedures. These new procedures are designed to bring the aggregate monthly change in jobs for individual states into closer alignment with the change in national job counts reflected in the estimates produced and published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As a result of these changes, the November 2008 and forward estimates may not be totally comparable to previous months’ data. The impact of these changes in methodology will be better understood when we are able to make benchmark comparisons to Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages. We expect to make these comparisons beginning in May of 2009.  For details of these changes, please contact Andy Condon at the Vermont Department of Labor at 802-828-4153 or [email protected](link sends e-mail).last_img read more

China to end subsidies for onshore wind power in 2021

first_imgChina to end subsidies for onshore wind power in 2021 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:China will end subsidies for new onshore wind power projects at the start of 2021, with renewable projects set to compete on an equal footing with coal- and gas-fired electricity, the country’s state planning agency said on Friday.The move is a milestone for the renewable energy sector, which has traditionally relied on subsidies and other preferential policies to encourage developers to build plants.China pays a relatively high tariff per kilowatt hour (kWh) of electricity produced by wind or solar projects, but it has been promoting what is known as ‘grid price parity’ with traditional sources of power such as coal. The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said tariffs paid to onshore wind projects will be cut to as low as 0.29 yuan ($0.0420) per kWh in 2020, while grid price parity will apply to all new projects from Jan. 1, 2021.China has been scaling back subsidies for both wind and solar projects after a rapid fall in equipment and construction costs, as well as a huge subsidy payment backlog for existing projects.China also launched a series of subsidy-free wind and solar projects in January, noting that solar construction costs in China fell 45 percent from 2012 to 2017, while wind project costs dropped 20 percent over the same period.According to a forecast published last weekend by the North China Electric Power University, the use of coal by the power sector is set to peak at 1.32 billion tonnes next year, though it remains higher than the government target of 1.23 billion tonnes. The study also said the share of non-fossil fuels in China’s total electricity mix is on course to hit 32-34% next year, higher than the 31% target.More: China to end subsidies for onshore wind power by 2021last_img read more

Haiti Urgently Needs Hurricane Alert System: Scientists

first_imgBy Dialogo March 10, 2010 Haitians desperately need a new hurricane alert system because communications were largely destroyed by January’s devastating earthquake, experts warned Monday. Scientists from 30 countries focused on how to improve meteorological services in Haiti to prevent further disasters as they began three days of meetings in Bermuda. “One of the areas they will be looking at will be better communications and dissemination possibilities,” Robert Masters of the World Meteorological Organization told AFP by telephone as the hurricane committee convened. Masters said about 80 percent of Haitians would normally be informed of any imminent hurricane or storm threat by turning on their televisions or tuning in on their radios. “But now with the earthquake this was reduced to 20 percent because people don’t have electricity, don’t have television and radios,” he said. “So it’s important to find new ways to disseminate information to be sure people are warned in the face of severe weather.” The scientists are expected to recommend, when the meeting wraps up on Wednesday, that governments providing aid to Haiti seek to create a storm alert system to ensure new disaster is averted. Haiti, which shares the Caribbean island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic is often hit by storms during the June to November hurricane season. The Western hemisphere’s poorest nation, Haiti is also poorly equipped to deal with hurricanes because massive deforestation has left it with few moisture-absorbing tropical forests. International aid groups have for weeks warned about the onset of the Caribbean’s rainy season, which begins in earnest late April, followed by the potentially disastrous hurricane season. Violent storms could turn fields where homeless Haitians are camping out into unsanitary pools of overflowing sewage and trigger mudslides and flooding that would threaten precarious post-quake settlements made of tents and flimsy plastic. In the 2008 hurricane season, Haiti was pounded by four storms that left more than 800,000 people homeless and devastated its agriculture. Last year, Haiti, the Caribbean, and the US mainland were spared any major storms during a relatively calm hurricane season. But the devastating earthquake that struck the country January 12 flattened most of the capital Port-au-Prince, killing more than 220,000 people and destroying half the nation’s economy, according to government estimates. Another 1.3 million people have been left homeless since the quake.last_img read more

Long Island Pro Gamer Returns Home a Little Richer, Wiser

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York With his team earning four bronze medals and $10,000 in cash prizes, Long Island’s top-skilled video gamer Nicholas Dicostanzo has returned home to Dix Hills after competing at the X Games in Austin, Texas, earlier this month.For the second year in a row, the extreme sports contest featured eSports, an electronic gaming competition, but for the first time, it was broadcasted live on ESPN. Dicostanzo’s four-member Team eLevate suffered a disappointing 4-0 loss in their final game, but the eSports competitors have certainly gained a lot more than they lost by landing in third place.“Obviously there were a lot of gameplay mistakes that I’m hashing over in my mind,” said Dicostanzo. “So I just keep playing and working on what I identify as my greatest weaknesses, building my intuition and reactions, and working on communication.”Diconstanzo, who’s been playing video games since 2007, only began playing competitively last year, winning team prizes across the country. For the MLG Professional League Championship in Austin, they were virtually slaying opponents in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.Compared to extreme skateboarding or BMX racing, eSports certainly differs from typical physical sports, but they share more similarities than not.“To be honest, it doesn’t matter to me if the world thinks of eSports as on the same level as athletic sports,” said Dicostanzo. “I know we put in a ton of time and practice like the athletes do, and we actually press to the physical limits similarly. But I don’t occupy myself with what others think about how eSports is situated.”He said his interactions with the other athletes proved to be supportive and insightful, helping both gamers and X-Game regulars gain mutual respect.“They were totally cool,” said Dicostanzo. “A lot of them play video games all the time, so they were interested in seeing how professional gamers play…Just like we were impressed by the stunts they could pull off, they were amazed to see the level of play we had.”So what’s next for the 23-year-old Long Island native, besides getting his Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting at the end of the year from Long Island University?“I enjoy getting back home, but I am focused on season three,” said Dicostanzo. “We’re putting together our roster now and want to make sure it’s top-quality, so we’ll see how that develops. We have a couple of plans in the works.”last_img read more

BLOG: Governor Wolf Will Keep Making Government More Efficient

first_img Budget News,  Efficiency,  Government That Works,  The Blog Governor Wolf remains committed to improving efficiencies, streamlining government operations, and reducing costs. He continues to change the way business is conducted to ensure that taxpayer dollars are being spent wisely, redundancies are eliminated, and customer interactions at all levels are improved.Just last week, Governor Wolf gave an update on these improvements, announcing produced savings for both the current and future state budgets. The Wolf Administration is on track to save $150 million in the current fiscal year. To date, GO-TIME has identified nearly 250 initiatives by state agencies to modernize government operations by increasing efficiency, improving technology, and identifying opportunities for agencies to collaborate and share resources. These initiatives will provide benefits including savings, reduced processing times, increased convenience, better customer service, and maximizing existing resources.Last year, Governor Wolf’s administration also implemented many reforms that generated substantial taxpayer savings and increased service effectiveness, including: eliminating the SNAP asset test, reducing the food stamp error rate, helping more TANF families find employment, reducing insurance rates by more than $80 million, and the largest reduction in prison population in 40 years.The 2016-17 Budget will again focus on creating a government that works effectively through innovation and increased efficiencies to ensure that taxpayer dollars are wisely spent.This budget includes the merger of the Department of Corrections and the Board of Probation and Parole (PDF) and the relocation of the eHealth Partnership Authority to within the Department of Human Services.The 2016-2017 Budget increases the use of Pay for Success performance contracts, which provide an innovative strategy to finance proven programs through public-private partnerships on a straightforward proposition. The Wolf Administration will work with private sector partners to address the employment needs of individuals with criminal convictions to make them less likely to return to the corrections system and more likely to build a foundation for a stable, productive life.Taxpayers will only pay for services that get results and save money in the long run. Payments are tied to the achievement of specific, pre-established performance goals that are set forth in the contract, and only occur after rigorous evaluation.Governor Wolf’s 2016-2017 Budget includes key government consolidations along with targeted investments that build upon the bipartisan budget agreement. It faces up to reality and does the difficult things we need to do to bring it into balance. This budget is the path we must choose to ensure that Pennsylvania has a bright future.

Using pension contributions for mortgage payments ‘not attractive’

first_imgThe issue of deploying pension contributions for mortgage payments has been on the agenda for pensions reform in the Netherlands since at least 2011, when trade union RMU came up with the proposal.Last month, social affairs minister Wouter Koolmees said he would assess the possibilities of making it an option for savers in a new pensions system.The researchers at ASRE highlighted that they only looked at the financial impact of using pension contributions for paying off a mortgage, and said that they hadn’t taken any possible legal or practical hurdles into account.Contribution flexibility pros and consResearch published by Tilburg University and the Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis last year called for Dutch workers to be granted greater flexibility over how they use their pension savings, claiming the benefits of such freedoms would outweigh the risks.At IPE’s annual conference in Dublin in December, panellists also debated alternative uses for pension contributions.During a panel discussion, Michael O’Higgins – a former chair of the UK’s Pensions Regulator – suggested allowing people to use auto-enrolment savings to pay off student loans faster. Amlan Roy, chief retirement strategist at State Street Global Advisors, added that the US Treasury department and the Department of Labor were considering “lifetime loan-bundling vehicles” to help younger workers pay off student debt.However, Tim Jones, former CEO of UK defined contribution fund NEST, disagreed strongly with the idea, arguing that: “Pension money is for your later life. No ‘ifs’ or ‘buts’.” Using pension contributions to pay off a mortgage would not be a financially attractive option, a survey by the Amsterdam School of Real Estate (ASRE) has suggested.It found that, on balance, the financial advantage of lower initial housing costs would be more than cancelled out by a lower pension income in retirement.The survey found that households using their pension contributions to pay down mortgage debt would have 6% more income during the entire duration of the mortgage.However, these households would also have a 15% lower pension income, it said.last_img read more

Europa League: Eriksen scores first Inter Milan goal, Ajax lose at Getafe

first_imgRelatedPosts Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen scored his first goal for the club since last month’s move from Tottenham Hotspur to set up a 2-0 win at Ludogorets Razgrad in the Europa League on Thursday. Manchester United were held 1-1 at Club Brugge and Getafe pulled off a surprise 2-0 home win over last year’s Champions League semi-finalists Ajax in other round-of-32, first-leg ties. Inter were frustrated by more than an hour by their Bulgarian opponents until Eriksen fired a low shot into the net from just outside the penalty area in the 71st minute. Romelu Lukaku sealed the win with a stoppage-time penalty, the Belgian striker’s 22nd goal of the season, after Anicet Andrianantenaina was judged to have handled following a VAR review. United were quickly in trouble in Belgium when Emmanuel Dennis lobbed the ball over Sergio Romero to give Brugge a 15th-minute lead. But Anthony Martial levelled in the 36th minute when he raced through to place a shot past Simon Mignolet. United, with new midfield signing Bruno Fernandes on the bench, struggled to create many chances, although conditions were difficult with heavy rain and a strong wind. Brazilian pair Deyverson and Kenedy scored in each half for Getafe against Ajax. Deyverson finished off a well-worked free kick to celebrate his European debut for the La Liga club with a goal after 38 minutes and Kenedy broke clear to add a second in the last minute. In other matches, Daichi Kamada scored a hat-trick to help Eintracht Frankfurt to a 4-1 win over coach Adi Huetter’s former club RB Salzburg. Viktor Kovalenko scored the winner as Shakhtar Donetsk beat Benfica 2-1 and Sporting defeated Istanbul Basaksehir 3-1.

Chicano studies department rejected

first_imgSYLMAR – Mission College’s Faculty Senate on Thursday rejected a controversial proposal to spin off the Chicano studies discipline into its own department. After a half-hour debate, the board voted 10-1 against the proposal, with nine members abstaining. English professor Ruthie Grant said the proposal didn’t even meet the criteria for creating a department. “This is the only way it could have gone,” Grant said after the vote. “People want exceptions and then they get upset because they don’t meet the criteria. All we’re trying to do is set some standards.” But Mission counselor Jose Luis Ramirez, who supported creating the Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies, said the proposal will likely be revised and resubmitted. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2“This program, like many other programs, can continue to grow,” Ramirez said. The proposal was submitted by Chicano studies professors John J. Morales, the former chair of the social sciences department, and Jose A. Maldonado. They said separating the discipline from social sciences would allow it to grow and attract and retain more of the campus’ 7,300 students, 70 percent of whom are Latino. Morales didn’t attend the meeting, but Maldonado, who is on stress-related leave, implored the faculty to approve the new department. Chicano studies is a discipline, not a department, at most community colleges. East Los Angeles College, which has 21,000 students, may be the only community college in the country to have it as an independent department. Newly elected student body president Jesse Martinez, 24, of San Fernando said the college should focus on offering more courses that will allow students to transfer to four-year universities. Mission has 21 sections of Chicano studies, but not a single physics class that is transferable to the University of California, he said. Mission President Jose A. Leyba, who didn’t attend the meeting, said there were hopeful signs in simply getting the faculty to discuss the proposal. Leyba has ordered mandatory mediation sessions, which began last week, to help ease tensions between the Chicano studies professors and other faculty. “There’s nothing wrong with saying, `I can’t vote for the proposal in this format, but if you make these changes, I can support it,”‘ Leyba said. “That’s exactly the kind of civility that happens on college campuses, and somehow we lost sight of that (before the mediation.) “This demonstrates that the college can heal. It may be a small step, but it is a step forward.” [email protected] (818) 713-3663160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Astros glad, Cardinals mad

first_img “I’m not trying to get thrown out of a playoff game. I don’t think I was adamant,” Edmonds said. “I said, ‘I’m just trying to ask you why that ball’s a strike,’ and asked him to do a better job and he threw me out.” A security guard in front of the umpires’ room at Minute Maid park said they would not be available for comment. The Astros can close it out at home tonight, with Andy Pettitte on the mound against Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter. Houston has come this far before – the Astros were one victory from the Fall Classic in 1980 and 2004, but are 0-4 overall with a chance to win the NLCS. “For us, it’s the best one out of three right now. It doesn’t get any easier,” manager Phil Garner said. “We’re in good position in terms of our pitching, our players and everything. But the job’s still got to get done.” St. Louis has quite an uphill climb if it wants to win its second consecutive pennant. The Cardinals must face Pettitte, Roy Oswalt and Roger Clemens in the next three games – if they can push it that far. Once again in this postseason, the umpires were in the middle of all the action. The Cardinals were angry about Cuzzi’s liberal strike zone all afternoon, and La Russa and Edmonds were ejected in the late innings for arguing balls and strikes. The Astros are 2 for 31 with runners in scoring position during the series, so it figures that they scored the go-ahead run without a hit. With the score tied 1-1, pinch-hitter Orlando Palmeiro drew a leadoff walk from Marquis, who then bobbled Biggio’s bunt for an error. One out later, Berkman walked and Ensberg hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly for a 2-1 lead. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

If we’re going to be a champion, we’ve got to come back,” shortstop David Eckstein said. “We might not be able to sleep tonight, but that’s normal.” Lidge stranded the potential tying run at third base to earn his third save of the series, Jason Lane homered and Willy Taveras made a saving catch on the center-field hill. Houston took advantage of a critical error by pitcher Jason Marquis – plus the ejections of St. Louis manager Tony La Russa and star Jim Edmonds by plate umpire Phil Cuzzi – to build a commanding 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. “This game, there’s some real great things about it and there’s some things that absolutely stink,” La Russa said, declining to talk specifically about the umpires. Any postseason ejection is rare, and the last time a team lost two members came in 1998 when Cleveland pitcher Dwight Gooden and manager Mike Hargrove were tossed.

Senegalese humanitarian appointed Fifa’s first female secretary-general

first_imgFifa’s new secretary-general is an African, and just as extraordinary, a woman. Senegal’s Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura’s appointment is being greeted with optimism in the football world with Fifa’s president Gianni Infantino believing she is the best person to help him rebuild the organisation.Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura’s two decades with the United Nations gives her the experience to help Fifa remake itself as a better run more transparent organization. (Image: Fifa) •Fifa World Cup Legacy Trust has changed lives•When football became Africa’s game• Promising future for South African football• African footballers call on their juju men• R3m boost for South African football schoolSulaiman PhilipA United Nations humanitarian coordinator will replace the disgraced Jerome Valcke as secretary-general of Fifa. It is hoped that Senegal’s Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura, a woman with 21 years of experience at the UN, will help the football governing body restore its integrity and improve the perception of it being an ethically challenged organisation.In announcing her appointment – she will join the organisation in June – Fifa president Gianni Infantino said Samoura’s appointment showed his administration’s resolve to change Fifa. “She has a proven ability to build and lead teams, and improve the way organisations perform. Importantly for Fifa, she also understands that transparency and accountability are at the heart of any well-run and responsible organisation.”For her part, Samoura believes in Infantino’s mission to bring “football back to Fifa and Fifa back to football”. Her appointment is a step into another strategic, high-impact rebuilding position for the senior logistics officer of the UN’s World Food Programme. “Fifa is taking a fresh approach to its work – and I am eager to play a role in making that approach as effective and lasting as possible.”Samoura’s appointment is a breath of fresh air for an organisation that has always appointed leaders from within the world of football. She is, according to Infantino, the spur that will help Fifa restore and rebuild. “No one exemplifies what we need more than Fatma does, and we are thrilled that she has joined our team. Fatma is a woman with international experience and vision who has worked on some of the most challenging issues of our time.”While she may have no experience negotiating television or sponsorship deals, she has spent her UN career brokering pacts and negotiating agreements worth hundreds of millions of dollars.It is this experience that made her the ideal replacement for the flawed Valcke, says Infantino. “She has a proven ability to build and lead teams, and improve the way organisations perform. Importantly for Fifa, she also understands that transparency and accountability are at the heart of any well-run and responsible organisation.”Samoura earned a master’s degree in English and Spanish – just two of at least four languages she speaks – from the University of Lyon and a post-master’s degree from the Institut d’Etudes Supérieures Spécialisées – Strasbourg-France in international relations and international trade.The Fifa president praised her experience and vision, which was gained working on some of the most challenging issues facing the globe. Samoura has served as country representative or director for six African countries – Djibouti, Cameroon, Chad, Guinea, Madagascar and Nigeria – with responsibility for budgeting, human resources, and procurement.She oversees 2 000 staff in a multicultural organisation, and monitors and evaluates the security, political and socioeconomic situation in Nigeria for the World Food Programme.Infantino wants to split administration duties at Fifa into two to cover football-specific aspects and the administration and business part. He sees Samoura as the perfect and most competent person as he rebuilds Fifa from within. “Her expertise will complement the long-standing and deep knowledge of world football within the Fifa leadership team and administration.”The BBC’s sports editor, Dan Roan, called Samoura’s appointment important for two reasons. First, he wrote, it shows Infantino’s desire to reach out to Africa’s footballing administrators who remember Sepp Blatter as the man who brought the World Cup to Africa.With her experience and being from outside Fifa, Roan went on, she fills sponsors and fans demands for someone independent from the football politics that has tainted the organisation. “With new reforms limiting the powers of the Fifa president, Ms Samoura arguably becomes the most important figure in world football. Effectively the chief executive of the governing body, she will be in charge of the day-to-day running of the organisation as it attempts to recover from the corruption crisis that has threatened its very existence.”One of the most important reforms is the elevation of more women to senior positions in what had previously been a boys’ club. The new Fifa Council must include at least one woman from each of Fifa’s six confederations. Besides Samoura, six more women will be joining decision-making bodies at Fifa, up from just a single female voice in the former executive council.last_img read more

Krittika Biswas case: Congressman writes to Hillary Clinton

first_imgEven as the US state department reiterated that Indian diplomat Debashish Biswas’s daughter Krittika, who recently sued New York City for illegally detaining her, did not enjoy diplomatic immunity, voices are being raised in the United States over the controversy involving the teenaged Indian schoolgirl.Leading Congressman Gary Ackerman has written a letter to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the Krittika issue. The letter comes ahead of Clinton’s visit to India on July 19.Ackerman’s letter might be the impetus needed to get Clinton sort out the issue before she reaches India. Krittika’s lawyer Ravi Batra had also earlier written to Clinton seeking her intervention. He had said that he was under pressure to withdraw the case.In his letter to Clinton, Ackerman writes: “I hope that somebody can take the time to remedy…. this injustice that has befallen this young girl and her fine diplomat family.”On the other side, US state department spokesman Mark Toner on Tuesday reiterated that Krittika had been allowed to contact her parents during the night she was detained and was released the next day.”As I’ve said before, as a family member of a consular officer at the Indian consulate in New York, she did not enjoy immunity from arrest from criminal or civil jurisdiction under international law. Certainly though, we value our partnership with India and we attach great importance to the presence of all Indian diplomatic and consular representatives in the United States. And we sympathise with Ms Biswas and her family,” Toner said in his latest clarification.advertisement”I think she was allowed to call her family and her father, who was the consul general, I believe. She was allowed to contact them,” he added.Krittika, whose father was the vice counsel at the Indian consulate in Manhattan, had been jailed by the New York Police Department for “cyber bullying”, a crime she had not committed, on February 8. She later sued the New York City authorities for $1.5 million.The teen had claimed that she had been ill-treated in prison after being arrested on charge of sending obscene emails to her teachers at Queens High School. She had alleged that she was not allowed to use the bathroom for a long-time when she was in custody.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

World T20: Told Hardik Pandya not to bowl yorker, says MS Dhoni

first_imgMahendra Singh Dhoni was all praise for young Hardik Pandya, who held his nerve during the last few moments and executed the instructions brilliantly by not bowling a yorker to Shuvagato Hom, which could have turned into a full-toss.”There were quite a few stuff we were discussing, one thing was for sure, we did not want him (Hardik) to bowl a yorker. It had to be a back of a length, but how back of a length, that was the question.”You don’t want to bowl a wide. We were deciding out field and I think he executed really well. It’s nice to have plans but the plan only looks good when it is executed well,” Dhoni said at post-match presentation ceremony. (How Pandya’s sensational last over helped India clinch thriller )Dhoni did not reveal his mid-pitch conversations with veteran Ashish Nehra.”I don’t want to say everything but the decision was what length to bowl, what line to bowl. If you are going for yorkers, what is the field and also keep in mind about the strength of the yorker. And also I knew, once the 20th over starts, you can take all the time you want. I can’t be fined,” Dhoni said cheekily.Dhoni also was sympathetic for Bangladesh’s best finisher Mahmudullah.”Often it does, at times you look to finish it with the big shot. And if you think you have wickets in hand, you think others can finish it. And when you are batting well, you go for your shots. It’s a learning curve for Mahmudullah as it happens with all finishers. That’s what cricket is all about, If that had gone for a six, it was a great shot. Great courage. That’s what cricket is. A commentator can have a look later and say whether it was a bad shot or not,” Dhoni said with his tongue firmly in cheek. (India got out of jail against Bangladesh, says Steve Waugh )advertisementDhoni also praised Jasprit Bumrah, who bowled an unbelievable 19th over.”Bumrah bowled really well, the second over that he bowled, he was under pressure, with the field restrictions. It was a reflection of his misfield and the dropped catch, but he had to forget about what happened and that’s what we told. I feel he is somebody who is very good with the yorkers and he did very well.”There were two occasions when we had to make the game and instead of using our part-timers and we bowled our frontliners. It was a very good bowling effort.”Man of the Match Ravichandran Ashwin admitted that the team was very tense during the final few overs.”We’ve never really got together and worried so much. I don’t have anything left. I am drained after today’s game. I will just crash now. Credit to Jasprit in the manner he bowled. He had put down a catch, he went for 22 in 2 overs. He was down but Bumrah came back for us.”I probably gave him a cheeky idea to try a Mankading in the end. We might have taken flak, but why not. We have not probably batted well.”Ashwin also gave his insight to what went on during the last delivery bowled by Pandya.”Before that ball, everybody got together and decided what we wanted to do. My idea was to bowl a bouncer, I think that’s the toughest ball to hit for a lower-order batsman. He missed it and we won the game,” Ashwin said. (Totally drained, want to crash in my hotel room: Ashwin )On Dhoni taking off the right gloves, Ashwin said: “It made sense to run to the stumps. It could have ricocheted off had he thrown with gloves on. If we didn’t win, we could have had a Super Over and lost the match. I thought when Mushfiq hit that boundary, I thought they would nudge it around. But Hardik held his nerve. He had to bowl the last over, he and Nehra bowled really well. The other choice was Yuvraj.”After we made 146, we knew we had a task. It was a small ground. The thing that was spoken in the huddle was they could take off or they could commit hara-kiri. Mushfiq wanted to lap him, but that slog was the game that sealed it. Mahmudullah’s shot was the pressure and credit to Jadeja that was a brilliant catch. This is one of those games where it was very tricky.”Initially, it was all about bowling good balls, but once Tamim was dropped, I knew we were on the back foot. When I came back, it was a catch-22, I didn’t know whether to go for wickets or contain. When I am confused, I just go for a wickets. I have seen one close game that was 2007 World Cup. This was it. It was the closest game.”advertisementBangladesh captain Mahsrafe Mortaza said that they lost the match in the last three balls. (Top Twitter reactions on India’s sensational win )”We were on top till the last three balls, we could have taken singles. But anyways, bad luck. The last three balls, we lost three wickets, we needed only two runs off three balls,” Mashrafe says.”Specially today it is really disappointing. Overall we played well, except Pakistan.

Another one bites the dust. The Windies are wasting the decent start. They were 79/1 and now find themselves 97/3. They are playing positive cricket but are losing wickets. Kuldeep tosses this one on middle and leg, Hetmyer looks to goes on side but gets gets a leading edge towards point where Rahul takes a good low catch.22.4 overs – Kuldeep to Ambris, OUT! Stumped! Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear. What on earth is happening? Poor Windies. This bloke has faced just 2 balls and he is jumped out on his third. Not even to the pitch of the ball. Misses. Pant doesn’t. Ambris tries to go back but he is heading back to the dressing room instead. Pant is way too quick. He might have struggled to take catches but stumpings have been brilliant.29.3 overs – Kuldeep to Chase, OUT! Half the side down. Seems like someone has told them to get these runs today itself. Another loose shot. Full and outside off, Chase leans to drive but does not bother to keep it down. Lady Luck does not bother to keep him on the field. Straightforward catch to Ashwin at cover. Kuldeep cannot control his laughter. This is silly cricket.35.4 overs – Kuldeep to Powell, OUT! Edged and taken! MAIDEN TEST FIFER FOR KULDEEP! Number 6 is down and this one is of the set batsman – Powell. A beautiful ball. After the long hop on the previous ball, Kuldeep bowls this much fuller and the line is on the stumps. Kieran presses forward to defend but the ball spins away and goes straight off the face of the bat. Where? To the debutant standing at silly point. Prithvi Shaw is alert and takes it well. Fine knock from Powell, deserved a century.Earlier, India had managed to bowl Windies all out for a mere score of 181 in the first innings. Having put up a massive total of 649/9 themselves, India bowled business-like as Ashwin returned with figures of 4/37 and Mohammed Shami picked two wickets while Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep and Ravindra Jadeja picked a wicket each.With Windies still trailing by 468 runs, India captain Virat Kohli enforced the follow-on. While Windies did start with some intent, especially Powell showing solidity but it was only a matter of time before Kuldeep came and ran through them five.last_img read more

Security Council discusses border tensions between Djibouti and Eritrea

23 October 2008The Security Council heard calls today for the peaceful resolution of the current border dispute between Djibouti and Eritrea, which flared into fighting in the Horn of Africa in June that killed at least 35 people and left dozens of others wounded. Representatives of Djibouti and Eritrea outlined their positions to a Council meeting that also heard statements from the Council’s 15 members, in which they stressed the need for restraint and backed existing international efforts to mediate a settlement.Djibouti’s President Ismail Omar Guelleh, whose country requested the Council meeting, asked the panel to call on Eritrea to meet its international obligations and move to end the dispute, which centres on an undemarcated border in an area known as Doumeira. If not, he said, sanctions may be needed.The armed conflict erupted in early June after weeks of tensions and military build-up on both sides, and a subsequent UN fact-finding mission reported that the dispute had the potential to destabilize the entire region.Mr. Guelleh said Djibouti’s priority was to demilitarize the area and re-establish mutual trust by reactivating existing bilateral mechanisms and creating some sort of arbitration to demarcate the border.He said Eritrea had continued to reinforce its troops and refuse to negotiate since June, and Djibouti therefore had no choice but to mass troops at the border and defend its territory.Eritrea’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Araya Desta, said his country had already dealt with Djibouti’s “unwarranted statements” at a previous Council meeting on the issue, adding that it was Djibouti that had provoked the conflict in June.Mr. Desta said Eritrea had exercised restraint and not taken any land belonging to Djibouti, and there had not been any new developments since the fighting four months ago.“Eritrea will not allow itself to be dragged into and invited to engage in a diversionary and fabricated conflict,” he said, noting that his Government stood ready to resolve the dispute.Eritrea refused to receive the UN fact-finding mission when it visited after the fighting, and consequently only Djibouti’s version of events was made available to it. The mission concluded that Djibouti was being drawn into a crippling and expensive military mobilization to deal with the situation. read more

Michigan born OSU hockey forward Nick Schilkey wears scarlet and gray close

OSU junior forward Nick Schilkey (7) during a game against Michigan on May. 6 at Nationwide Arena. Credit: Lantern File PhotoOhio State senior forward hockey captain Nick Schilkey wishes he had a dollar for every time he has been asked why he came to OSU from his home state of Michigan. If so, he said he would be as rich as another Buckeye: L Brands owner Les Wexner. The constant questioning will be worth it, however, if Schilkey is successful in his pursuit of a Big Ten championship and the program’s first berth into the NCAA tournament since 2009.  A native of Marysville, Michigan, Schilkey grew up playing in the Detroit area primarily with the nationally recognized HoneyBaked AAA program. It was his parents, Glen and Michelle, along with his other family ties that instilled the love for the game of hockey in him.“My dad always joked that he put me in skates before I could walk.” Schilkey said.His speed and agility — which led him to score 87 goals and assist on 85 others between the ages of 13 and 16 against NHL players Alex Galchenyuk of the Montreal Canadiens and Jacob Trouba of the Winnipeg Jets — caught the attention of OSU.It was not until his final year with HoneyBaked in 2010-11 that he realized college hockey was a legitimate option.“I don’t think I could ever look back at one of those teams and thinking to myself as being one of the best guys because we were so good,” Schilkey said.OSU was the first school to approach Schilkey about furthering his career in hockey. The program’s commitment to Schilkey, facilities and campus life sold him immediately, he said.“I go to different schools around the country and play and nothing beats what we have here,” Schilkey said. “I came down here and the coaches really wanted me to be here and I wanted to be here. This was the spot for me.”Before he moved to Columbus, Schilkey played junior hockey for two years, a common prerequisite for hockey players before beginning their college endeavors.After two seasons with the Green Bay Gamblers of the United States Hockey League, the top junior league in the U.S., Schilkey was ready to showcase his talents at OSU.The team he was recruited by, however, had changed by the time he arrived. In April 2013, OSU coach Mark Osiecki was fired and replaced by Steve Rohlik, who had been an Osiecki assistant.Schilkey was not deterred.“I was comfortable with the coaches because (Rohlik) was here,” Schilkey said. “For me, I didn’t think anything would change too much.”Rohlik recalled the recruitment of Schilkey, who stood out like maize and blue in a sea of scarlet and gray.“When you walked into the rink, you knew who Nick Schilkey was,” Rohlik said. “He’d get that puck and he’d be Mach 10 down the ice. He could score. One thing that always grabbed me is that he wanted it. He wanted the puck, he wanted to be involved, he wanted to be ‘the guy.’ There was no hesitation in his game.”Rohlik has continued to be impressed by Schilkey’s performances weekend after weekend.“You know what you’re getting when he touches the ice,” Rohlik said. “I know if I throw him out there, he’s going to give me everything that he’s got.”And it shows in his production, Rohlik said.In 108 career games, Schilkey has 43 goals and 48 assists. He has been voted team captain twice due to leadership that has rubbed off on his teammates.“Right away freshman year, I noticed that he never quits,” senior defenseman Josh Healey said. “He goes out there every shift and every time in the weight room and goes until he can’t go anymore. It really pushed me to be my best when I was around him … He’s a leader by example and guys follow that, it’s a credit to him.”So far this season, the team has followed him to an upset win over No. 3 Denver last Friday on its home ice, followed by a tie with Air Force the next night. As the Buckeyes head into the heart of the 2016-17 season, Rohlik said there is no one he would trust more to lead the team.“I think it’s in him right now that he wants to do something special before he leaves here,” Rohlik said. “He’s already had such a huge impact on this program, not only by being a great player, but by being a great person. I can’t say enough about him. He’s one of those guys, as a coach, you love having him in your program.” As for Schilkey, the legacy he wants to leave behind is a championship in his home state. The conference tournament will be hosted at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit for the final time in March.“To get this team back there and obviously it’s going to take a lot of leaders in the room, it’s going to take the team to accomplish that goal,” Schilkey said. “I think we’re excited for it. I think we’re confident in that this is one of the best opportunities we’ve had in my four years here. To leave on top is something everybody wants to do.”Ranked No. 19 in the latest poll, Schilkey and the Buckeyes head to Oxford, Ohio, on Saturday to take on in-state rival Miami at Goggin Ice Center with the puck drop scheduled for 8:05 p.m. read more

Stop phone boxes which are a Trojan horses for adverts councils say

first_img“As a result pedestrians are being bombarded with a series of eyesores that blight the public highway.“Councils are currently powerless to act, so we want the Government to overturn the existing out-of-date legislation and give local authorities the ability to take action where this is an issue.”Oxford Street and Edgware Road in Westminster, London have been particularly blighted along with  Lord Street, in Liverpool where there are 8 within a 125m stretch. Under the current law, companies only need a licence from Ofcom to install a telephone box.  Councils can object based on design and appearance but the final decision is made by the Planning Inspectorate.Councils say that the boxes also fall victim to anti-social behaviour and they are powerless to remove them even when they are out of use.  Telephone boxes are being used as Trojan horses to sell adverts, councils have complained as applications to install them have soared by 900 per cent. Despite a rise in mobile phones meaning that the street payphone is a “relic of a bygone era”, a planning loophole means that hundreds could be put up around the country to provide lucrative advertising space, the The Local Government Association (LGA) has warned. The LGA, which represents 370 councils in England and Wales, has now called on the Government to scrap permitted development, which allows telecoms companies to install boxes without planning permission. A sample of 12 council areas found that there were just 89 applications to install phone boxes in 2015 compared to 914 last year, a rise of more than 900pc.Cllr Martin Tett, the LGA’s Planning spokesman, said: “The rise of the smartphone and digital age has seen the telephone box become a largely obsolete relic of a bygone era.“While there is still a limited need for some telephone boxes in our town centres and cities, for example for emergencies, the number of applications councils have seen is simply staggering.“Companies are exploiting a loophole in the law to allow what is tantamount to Trojan telephone boxes being used as advertising spaces rather than the original purpose of providing a place for people to use a phone.

Duke and Duchess of Sussex surprise sports fans with a visit to

The Duchess of Sussex surprised sports fans on Saturday afternoon as she made an unexpected, All-American appearance at the baseball.The Duchess joined her husband, who had previously been announced as attending alone, to watch the New York Yankees play the Boston Red Sox at London Stadium.Prince Harry sported a black Invictus Games polo shirt, which Meghan matched with a black dress and belt teamed with flat shoes.The couple were greeted before posing all-smiles with both teams in a group shot. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex even accepted a gift for baby Archie: a baseball shirt with his name printed on it. In good spirits, the Duchess of Sussex hugged players, as an amused Harry looked on. It was a rare public appearance for the Duchess since the birth of the couple’s first child, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, on May 6.Earlier this month, she appeared at Trooping the Colour to mark the Queen’s official birthday, but did not take part in the state visit of President Donald Trump.

The couple officially made an appearance at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to promote the Invictus Games Foundation, Prince Harry’s sports tournament for wounded veterans which is the charity partner for the weekend baseball series in London.It is the first Major League Baseball (MLB) game played in Europe, and will be watched by a large audience of eager baseball fans back in the US. Former Invictus competitors from both the USA and UK took part to make the ceremonial first pitch thrown on the ball park.”The support from these groundbreaking games will significantly enhance the Foundation’s ability to provide recovery opportunities for international wounded, injured, or sick serving or veteran armed forces personnel,” Invictus chief executive Dominic Reid said.The royal’s baseball outing comes just over nine years after Prince Harry threw the first pitch for hosts New York Mets against the Minnesota Twins on Britain’s Armed Forces Day.Organisers of yesterday’s game said all 120,000 tickets sold out in 45 minutes.The first regular MLB games to be played in Europe are expected to open up previously untapped markets for the organisation, which has already staged international events in Mexico, Japan, Australia and Puerto Rico. She is likely to make further irregular appearances, including at Archie’s christening and potentially Wimbledon, before resuming official duties in the autumn with a tour to South Africa. Her attendance at the baseball will be considered as a nod to her American heritage, as well as the Sussex’s following across the pond. The couple have recently announced they are to set up their own charitable foundation, which will have the flexibility for them to work more globally.  read more

Musselwhite – first Canadian mine to win International Cyanide Code certification

first_imgGoldcorp’s Musselwhite mine in northwest Ontario has become the first gold mining operation in Canada to be fully certified under the International Cyanide Management Code for the Manufacture, Transport and Use of Cyanide in the Production of Gold. Musselwhite is an underground mine that produces some 250,000 oz/y of gold.The Cyanide Code is a voluntary industry program for companies involved in the production of gold using cyanide. It was developed under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Program with the goal of safeguarding human health and the environment by promoting responsible management of cyanide used in gold mining.Also, Goldcorp’s Marigold mine in Nevada has been re-certified under the Cyanide Code. Marigold is the first gold mine to undergo a second triennial Code audit and be found in full compliance. In 2007, Marigold became the first gold mining operation in the world to be fully certified. Along with Musselwhite and Marigold, Goldcorp’s El Sauzal mine in Mexico and Marlin mine in Guatemala have also been fully certified.“Our highest priority is the health and safety of our employees and of the communities in which we operate,” said Chuck Jeannes, Goldcorp CEO. “The certification of Musselwhite mine is another positive step forward in Goldcorp’s commitment to environmental stewardship and operating all of its mines responsibly and to the highest international standards.”Goldcorp says it is the lowest-cost and fastest growing multi-million ounce gold producer with operations throughout the Americas. Its gold production remains 100% unhedged.last_img read more

India starts buying advanced materials handling support for its growing mining industry

first_imgThe largest ever electric haul truck to be deployed in the Indian mining sector has been commissioned by Larsen & Toubro, the distributor of Komatsu equipment in India. Komatsu’s Model 830E-AC trucks with a payload capacity of 218 t were ordered by the mining giant, Hindustan Zinc Ltd (HZL), a Vedanta Resources company, in Rajasthan. These are the first large trucks in India and are expected to lead to other large truck deployments in the country as it catchews on to the ‘economies of scale’ for moving huge volumes of overburden and ore. With HZL poised to become the largest integrated zinc producer in the world, L&T reiterated its commitment to meet this challenge with Komatsu’s new generation off-highway truck technology.L&T also recently secured a lumpsum turnkey contract worth Rs. 276 crore from Coal India for Coal Handling Plant at Northern Coalfield, Amlohri, in Madhya Pradesh. L&T’s Bulk Material Handling Business Unit has secured this on an EPC basis, against competitive bidding.

Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan has written to Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Urjit Patel seeking an inquiry into the issue In his letter Chavan referred to an article on Firstpost which pointed out that the number of loan accounts reported by public sector banks to the state government was initially exaggerated by about 910 lakhs He also referred to an article in The Indian Express which said that the Union Bank of India initially gave an estimate of 648 lakh defaulting farmers which was later brought down to 134 lakhs by the state government "As a result the loan disbursement process in the state has collapsed leaving millions of farmers in (the) lurch" the letter which was sent on 29 November states Prithviraj Chavan has lashed out at the role of the banks which resulted in mismanagement of the scheme "The implementation of the (farm loan waiver) scheme has hit a serious roadblock as the banks both the public sector and co-operative were found to have inflated the number of farm loan accounts by about 14 lakhs" he wrote However he has also stated that there could be a ‘problem in the state government’s online application process and not in the bank data’ The letter sent by Prithviraj Chavan to RBI Governor Urjit Patel Sanjay Sawant/Firstpost In June this year the State Level Bankers Committee announced that Rs 34022 crore was sanctioned to be deposited in 89 lakh beneficiary accounts However the number dropped sharply to 7729 lakh accounts owing to stringent screening methods removing the scope of ghost accounts and multiple beneficiaries

government must either file a criminal case against the banks or the chief minister should ‘reveal the truth about the mess’ Chavan further stated that the requirement of Aadhaar cards and the complexity of the application form— with 66 sections to be filled— affected the rollout of the scheme As this report points out the state government initially received 105 crore applications from farmers The banks furnished a list of 7729 lakh who according to their records were eligible for the waiver But a combined master list by Innowave— the government’s IT vendor— had only 239 lakh valid applicants Mismatches in Aadhaar numbers incorrect names and loan amounts have led to delays in the disbursement of the loan waiver As a result of the technical glitches very few farmers have actually

‘socialist’ and ‘secular’ were incorporated in the Preamble through the 42nd amendment of the Constitution We have no objection" he said Referring to the debate in Lok Sabha the Saamna editorial slammed the Congress for claiming that Ambedkar his constitutional framework and its implementation were all because of the party "The Dalit population has over the years realised that the Congress which ensured Ambedkar’s defeat in the Lok Sabha polls has used the ‘divide-and-rule formula’ and used followers of Ambedkar for their selfish politics as votebank" the Sena further alleged The celebration of Constitution Day would be meaningful if wisdom dawns on selfish politicians not to use these words the editorial opined PTI Written by Shiny Varghese | Updated: March 5 2017 12:22 pm Charting their own course — From L to R: Chitra Vishwanath Brinda Somaya and Sheila Sri Prakash Related News Histories of women are seldom narrated much less of those in the design realm be it Ray Eames who needed a Pat Kirkham to bring her out of her husband Charles’s shadow or closer home Urmila Eulie Chowdhury who worked closely with Le Corbusier in the planning of Chandigarh but rarely finds a mention in conversations around its making The male-dominated space of architecture has little room for women to practice the profession without male partners We speak to three women architects in the country who set up offices on their own steam stayed conscious of their values and questioned the very definition of architecture Brinda Somaya Somaya and Kalappa Consultants Mumbai Can you tell us about a project that gave you insights into the act of architecture In 1995 we were working on the revitalisation of the Nityanand Ashram outside Bombay The clients wanted a plaza near the temple for the flower-sellers We built them nice shops but they refused to move in We later realised that we had never asked them what they wanted They needed shops that could be raised so that they could store unsold flowers in the dark a space for water etc So no matter how big or small a project is if you don’t understand why and what you are building then there’s no point to it In your four decades of practice you have done hotels and slum housing commercial and conservation projects As an architect what satisfies youthe most We have built across the country from the Himalayas to south India from Kolkata to Jharkhand We believe in doing pro bono projects; it accounts for about 20 per cent of our work There was a project in Badli Kutch soon after the 2001 earthquake When I got there people were out in the cold their houses had been turned to rubble They wanted to build on their original parcels of land close to their own neighbours So we did an accurate survey and built it in a grid pattern just as they had desired During my first visit I saw a little girl sleeping in the open When we went there the last time she had gone to another village because she’s now in high school It gave me an immense sense of satisfaction We as architects are privileged We have the creativity and ability to innovate new forms restore and rebuild As the chairperson of the School of Planning and Architecture Vijaywada what do you have to say about the process of selection for the Amaravati Capital Complex project Our biggest tragedy as a profession is that there are not enough architects and urban planners who can effect change Cities should not be planned in government offices; urban designers have a role to play When a committee is formed it should have 90 per cent professionals but often it’s mere tokenism I’m not against foreign architects We have collaborated with many international firms But we have to understand whom we are building for What was it like when you began Somaya and Kalappa Consultants in 1978 I never dreamt that I would build as I did I began work in my own garden shed with no business plan My husband was in the army and we moved around quite a bit There were times when I said I was an architect but would be introduced as an interior designer I built a body of work slowly and steadily You’ve spoken in the past of women labourers on construction sites and the wage discrepancies they suffer which male architects often overlook Do you think women architects respond differently to issues It is not necessarily gender-based Over the years many architects who worked in our firm have been men but they have been equally sensitive on a construction site Though Zaha Hadid is quoted to have said that the well-being of construction labourers isn’t her responsibility It really depends on an individual What’s on your drawing board that excites you currently We are the exhibition designers for a travelling show ‘India and the World: A History in Nine Stories’ It has been planned as a celebration of 70 years of India’s independence and will show objects and artwork from specific periods of India’s history besides iconic objects from the British Museum collection We will also open a campus in Indore soon that will house 1500 engineers These projects epitomise the breadth of our work as a firm Chitra Vishwanath Biome Solutions Bangalore Chitra Vishwanath doesn’t believe in walls Be it the four walls of a house or the separation of water energy and food from the act of building itself Her own home-cum-studio in Vidyaranyapura north Bangalore has minimal doors maximum windows and spaces with ample air and light that obey the diurnal movement of the sun While many professionals speak of green architecture like a coat of paint on a wall Vishwanath puts it to practice “How does one manage water and sanitation in an urban context We don’t just do a one-off home outside the city We build in the city for salaried common people Even if it is a 600 sq ft plot it will have daylight and rainwater harvested” says Vishwanath Her firm Biome Environmental Solutions was created from the merger of Chitra Vishwanath Architects and Rainwater Club founded by her husband — engineer and water warrior S Vishwanath — in 2008 Vishwanath evangelises the use of stabilised mud blocks as an alternative to bricks — their own home became the testing lab: from recycling wastewater to solar cooking and a waterless toilet “We scooped out soil to make a basement though we didn’t know if it would work But today we insist that every house should have a basement because it’s cooler We built a mezzanine and went about placing thermometers in every room to check the temperature On cold nights the mezzanine is the warmest place We also learnt that placing bedrooms lower than the kitchen can be a problem for an ageing parent” says the 54-year-old Vishwanath’s penchant for making came from her sculptor father who often has visitors like KG Subramanyan visiting their home “We made our own cabinets and if it didn’t work we reworked them My father was always talking about new materials and experimenting We would talk about construction as a profession as a craft as an act” she says Is skilled manpower a challenge to her engineered buildings “As architects you imagine someone else to be born with the skills and all that architects need to do is spout jargon and wear black The question is: what are you expecting Are you expecting a wall to be beautiful or the space to be beautiful lf you make good spaces and there’s a little flaw on the wall it’s okay it’s wabi-sabi the Japanese acceptance of imperfection What good is a perfect wall but a poor space Should we make regurgitated designs for a glossy foreign magazine or are we looking at how to empower an agricultural labourer in the city during the dry months to feed his family” For Vishwanath engaging with the city and people has little to do with brick and mortar “I work in my area mostly with women garbage collectors What I’m personally interested in are the inclusive play spaces we are creating for children with disabilities We have been partnering with Kilikili a registered trust formed by parents of children with special needs” she says Ultimately being a woman in a man’s world has never been a problem for Vishwanath who studied civil engineering before architecture at the Centre for Environment Planning and Technology (CEPT) University Ahmedabad Not only does she know how to cost a building but she also has a nuanced understanding of structural details “Often it’s your own peers whom you have to confront Would Zaha Hadid be lampooned as much if she were a man” she says Sheila Sri Prakash Shilpa Architects Chennai Is there a difference between “ready-made space” and “space in the making” Architect Sheila Sri Prakash finds her rhythm in the latter As a Bharatanatyam artiste much of her sense of movement and space comes from dance “Both my dance and architecture are connected Both involve line and movement One learns how rhythm can be created and broken and how boundaries are set As a dancer one is always creating a storyline an ambience for the audience It’s that space in your head before it’s enacted where a river flows and the mountain lies” says 61-year-old Prakash Her practice Shilpa Architects that was launched in 1979 has seen the construction of civic commercial residential and industrial buildings across Tamil Nadu but it didn’t come easy for the award-winning architect A professor at the School of Architecture and Planning in Chennai asked her at the entry interview if she would be depriving another student; clients told her to design for free because she’s a woman — Prakash battled indifference and scepticism early in her career But she learnt to balance cynicism with craft If the Cholamandal Centre for Contemporary Art in Chennai honours artists of the Madras Movement the Mahindra World City Club draws from the cultural heritage of Kanchipuram Her response to the materiality of materials is based on its usage “I love the earthy quality of brick and its porosity and the transparency of glass Today people put a film over glass place it in the wrong direction which generates too much heat We need to ask: why are we placing these windows Is it only for a view Or is it for air Can its proportions change” At a conference on steel last year Prakash spoke of its sculptural possibilities Though she seldom uses it in her own buildings she asked if the profession could move beyond the industrial use of steel and allow it the movement it affords like in Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava’s Milwaukee Art Museum where the moveable roof spans out like wings based on the position of the sun Prakash’s idea of sustainable design in cities values the role of multiple participants “It’s like an orchestra where you include the movement and silences of every member The reciprocity of design is a value system for urban design indicators which bring holistic sustainability You can’t design without considering climate availability of water human potential and social values” says Prakash who has presented this idea of urban design in forums in India and abroad Yet Chennai stays close to her heart even if her army upbringing had her travelling across the country “I’m from Chennai and the artistic values I received from the city and my gurus are strong within me These values are our strength; it’s what differentiates us from the others” For all the latest

next week with the government reaching out to opposition parties even as the Congress described the exercise as "constructive and positive" Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanyam today held several rounds of talks with leaders of Congress and other parties including the Samajwadi Party JD(U) and CPI(M) Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram Anand Sharma and Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha participated in the discussions with Jaitley There were two rounds with the Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi PTI "Serious effort is being made to bring a consensus on the GST bill" Sharma said without disclosing details on whether the Congress was insisting on its standing about putting a cap on the levy in the Constitution bill Congress sources said party Vice President Rahul Gandhi also expects a positive outcome from these consultations They said the discussions have entered a "decisive and positive phase" "Talks are on with various parties on GST and so far things are moving forward as expected" a senior government functionary said adding the effort is on to present it in the Rajya Sabha next week Sources say Jaitley told the opposition leaders that government wants to bring consensus on the GST and was ready for talks with any leader even during the weekend to hear out and address their concerns on the issue A top congress leader however said they were awaiting the draft of the legislation after "extensive talks" with the government and hoped for a "positive outcome" At the meeting of Business Advisory Committee (BAC) of Upper House today evening the GST bill was not discussed as it has already earmarked five hours for the bill last week Jaitley also met SP leader Ram Gopal Yadav and CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury and held talks with other leaders also Sources add that the government is also in touch with AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa on the key bill Prime Minister Narendra Modi talked to Yadav when the Rajya Sabha was adjourned briefly during the Question Hour Modi remained seated in the House during the brief adjournment and spoke to Yadav and another SP member Neeraj Shekhar Meanwhile five parties including the Left on Thursday asked the Centre to assure states that their financial needs will be taken care of before the GST Bill is brought which they allege seeks to take away states’ right to raise resources This was conveyed by them to Jaitley when leaders of the parties in Rajya Sabha belonging CPI(M) CPI Trinamool Congress Samajwadi Party and BJD met him CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury said the Constitution amendment bill would make the states "to come with a begging bowl to the Centre placing them at the Centre’s mercy" He said the GST Bill would deprive the states of their "right to raise resources" through sales tax surcharge or cess "The state governments will be deprived of their only right to raise revenue as this right will be abolished with the Bill" as they would not be able to impose any cess even during an emergency or natural disaster he said adding that this was conveyed to the Finance Minister at the meeting "The GST Bill is only meant for imposing a tax It does not deal with Centre-State relations So a resolution has to be found outside the Bill and the government has to come out with an assurance" the CPI(M) leader said adding that "we will have to see how the government addresses this issue" Regarding the meeting Yechury said "we were merely informed about the discussion the government had with the Congress There was no scope for a discussion" He also said there is "nothing in writing so far" on what the latest bill actually says Accusing the Narendra Modi government of going by the strength of the parties in Parliament to hold discussions on the GST Bill he said "so we are immaterial in terms of number of seats we have It is a game between the BJP and the Congress" Asked whether Jaitley indicated by when the bill will be brought to Rajya Sabha the CPI(M) leader said "there is no indication It will all depend on what is happening between the BJP and the Congress" The government is working to address the concerns raised by opposition parties

launched a nationwide million-dollar campaign to spread awareness and address the “collective misunderstanding” over the minority community amid a spike in hate crimes against them in the country The month-long ‘We are Sikhs’ campaign was launched by the National Sikh Campaign (NSC) a non-profit organisation coinciding with the Sikh festival of ‘Vaisakhi’ a holy day for the community It is a massive initiative to spread awareness of the Sikh religion and Sikh-Americans throughout the US as over 65 per cent of Americans are ignorant about Sikhism The campaign is a “national effort to help inform our fellow Americans about who we are and why we are proud to wear the turban a symbol of our community’s commitment to equality and serving others” co-founder and senior advisor of the National Sikh Campaign Rajwant Singh said “Sikh-Americans are pillars of their communities in every corner of our nation and we must work to proactively meet and connect with our neighbours” he said
