Co-operative profit jumps after merger

first_imgWednesday 30 March 2011 8:10 pm KCS-content Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Share whatsappcenter_img CO-OPERATIVE Financial Services saw pre-tax profit rise 5.5 per cent last year to £53.3m, with the bank attributing a steep drop in costs to synergies after its 2009 merger with Britannia.But earnings were dented by a sharp rise in claims due to weather-related chaos early last year, with the bank estimating a claims cost of £7m as a result.Overall operating costs fell 36.8 per cent to £338m and the company said that it is on track to meet its target of reducing costs following its acquisitions.Impairments fell dramatically by 41.1 per cent to a cost of £42m last year, which the Co-op attributed to “improved arrears collection processes and tightening of credit-risk scorecards”.The bank reported that its core tier one capital ratio rose to 9.6 per cent – above the Basel III minimum requirements of seven per cent.The insurance business was hit by snow-related claims “following the exceptionally cold conditions in the early months of 2010, increasing the cost of claims by 9.7 per cent on 2009. Overall, however, insurance sales grew, with general insurance seeing net earned premiums rise 7.1 per cent. The vast majority of the bank’s earnings came from its corporate and markets business line, where operating profits soared by 116.4 per cent to £80.7m.The bank reported that its newly founded asset management business, set up to invest money in its pensions and insurance funds “is in a break-even position”.The annual results released yesterday follow the revelation in Monday’s City A.M. that the Co-op has been chosen by the government to head up the administration of the Reclaim Fund, an asset manager for dormant bank accounts that will fund the Big Society Bank. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To whatsapp Read This NextWATCH: Shohei Ohtani continues home run tear, Los Angeles Angels winSportsnautYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofBaked Sesame Salmon: Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Co-operative profit jumps after merger last_img read more

Either I’ve gone crazy or the world has, but I’d keep buying these cheap shares!

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. See all posts by Cliff D’Arcy Image source: Getty Images Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The much-feared ‘October curse’ has struck again, with shares diving on both sides of the Atlantic before Halloween. This has been the worst week for the UK and US stock markets since the darkest days of March. The FTSE 100 index lost 280 points (4.8%) to close at 5,577.27 points on Friday. With the US presidential election due next Tuesday, the S&P 500 is even more volatile, down 215 points (6.2%) this week. For pessimists, this has been a grim week. But for optimistic value investors (including me), lower prices make cheap shares even more compelling buys.Buying cheap shares has been terrible in 2020As I watch the prices of cheap shares in great businesses descend into the depths, I wonder if I’ve gone crazy and lost the plot. After all, my strategy of buying and holding cheap shares in quality companies for the long term has lately produced unimpressive returns. Indeed, value investing has had a terrible 2020 — and that’s  on top of a poor decade since the global financial crisis ended in 2009. Incredibly, value investing is enduring its worst performance period in almost 200 years, according to this recent report. This is partly due to investors embracing shares in fast-growing mega-cap US tech firms, while shunning ‘old world’ businesses such as banks, oil & gas, and tobacco companies.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…A nasty year for NatWestOne week ago, I wrote about NatWest Group (LSE: NWG). Since July, this is the new name for the Royal Bank of Scotland. Alas, this change hasn’t stopped these cheap shares from tanking. On Friday, NatWest stock closed at 124.2p, up 7p (6%) on the day, but only 1.1% ahead for the week. I expected more from it this week (see below), but it may have been held back by a weak market.Overall, it’s been a tough 2020 for NatWest shares, which have almost halved, having collapsed 48.3% in 10 months. At its 52-week high just before Christmas, NatWest stock closed at 265p on 13 December. Today, the ‘Big Four’ banks’ market value is £14.2bn, down over £16bn from its 2019 peak.I still think NWG is a cheap FTSE 100 stockDuring the Covid-19 spring panic, NatWest’s share price collapsed to 101.75p on 3 April, before rebounding to hit 137.35p on 5 June. Over the past five months, the stock has zigzagged along, before plunging to a fresh low of 90.54p on 21 September. At this point, these cheap shares were even cheaper than chips.On Friday, NatWest released an improved set of quarterly results that beat the most optimistic analysts’ forecasts. In Q3, it booked a pre-tax profit of £355m, versus a £1.3bn loss in Q2. This was driven by provisions for loan losses, which plunged to £254m from £2.1bn in Q2. As a result, the bank’s Common Equity Tier one (CET1) ratio — a measure of financial strength — climbed to 18.2%. This leaves NatWest with £8bn of excess capital, suggests one analyst.Today, the NatWest share price stands more than a third (37%) above its September bottom. Even so, I believe that this stock is still deep in the ‘cheap shares’ bargain bin. NatWest’s excess capital should cushion it from further losses from being the #1 lender to small businesses. And, when it restarts dividends in 2021, as it should do, NatWest’s stock should soar. That’s why I would buy these cheap shares today, ideally inside a tax-free ISA, to bank future capital gains and tasty dividends! Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The programmatic zones of Public, Service and Private spatially organized the house into 3 distinct zones with further punctuation of the main massing with the Landscape element; providing spaces for the courtyard and roof deck. This base form was further chiseled with structure, daylight/ventilation and viewpoint concerns. Save this picture!Section65% of low rise Japanese houses are constructed out of timber, a material that has the strongest weight to strength ratio amongst other building materials like concrete and steel.  Using timber from a renewable source, coupled with building technology that utilized a hybrid of traditional mortise and tenon joint system with steel bracketing, this house was able to push the ubiquitous “boxed” building envelope for timber residential construction in Japan. Save this picture!© Jeremy SanThe solution to push the Public program to the upper level was obvious with the need to accommodate parking for 3 cars. In addition, this offered an elevated scenic view of the park by having living/dining/kitchen at the second level. The extensive 3.2 m wooden cantilever was unusual with the norm capped at 1.5 m. The initial structural concept of using a truss floor progressed to the final structural solution; using an elegant inspiration from bridge construction and book shelf bracketing. Further reinforcement of the structure was made in the courtyard wall to reduce eccentricity of built form and thus lateral movements during earthquakes. Save this picture!© Jeremy SanThe outer form reflected the inner structure of the building, creating opportunities for expression of inclined surfaces. These further expressed their responses to rainwater drainage and the sublime reflection of the surrounding landscape. In order to bring views of the exterior Sakura into the dining space, an asymmetrical window ledge was purposefully built, providing a material continuity from exterior to interior and framing the picturesque view. Save this picture!Floor PlanThe idea of “Reflection” was multifarious and became a series of unfolded meanings; exterior reflection of surrounding, interior reflection of surroundings, introspective reflection spaces and reflection of the house structure. Save this picture!© Jeremy SanThe landscape falls into three areas, the front yard, the courtyard and the roof deck. The front yard accommodates parking for three cars and becomes the entrance frame for the house. The connecting tissue to the park relies on the structurally evolved facade that visually associates with it and uses similar ground paving material. The courtyard, an intimate private garden forms part of the environmental funnel to dissipate hot air during summer. This space further anchors the master bedroom, 1-tatami introspective room, and double volume library. The roof deck, the pinnacle of the house further heighten one’s sense of place with its surroundings and provides the perfect viewing platform for both Hanami (Sakura) and Hanabi (Fireworks) festivals.

O House / SYAA

The particularity of this project is the very small (116sqm), plot and the desire of two friends to build together their urban apartments, each of them with its own appendix functioning as a professional space – a wine bar and a recording studio respectively.Save this picture!SectionThese special additions, along with the reduced imprint of the house, dictated a vertical spatial layout: the wine bar and duplex belonging to one of the clients were placed on the underground, ground floor and first floor, thus also enjoying the presence of a small courtyard, whereas the recording studio and the other duplex were placed on the terraced attic, the second and the third floors.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirThe result was a five-level building with four functional units. The height – unusual for a house – as well as the owners’ lifestyle and requests led to the design of four different access ways and a semi-open exterior staircase, integrated in the building’s envelope. The wine bar, located on the underground level and open to the public, communicates directly with the street through a buffer space on the ground floor.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanJoining all functions in a compact manner was balanced by large openings towards the street and double height spaces. Interior spaces opened on two levels and expressed in the facade by large vertical windows, the loggia on the second floor that extends up to the attic, the exterior staircase included in the volume of the house and the openings randomly paced on facades give a unified compact look, in which one can hardly read levels and functions.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirThe resulting building preserves the defining elements of the traditional houses in the area: the courtyard with garden and private access, directly from the street, the roof framing with attic. The house links and contributes to the public space through its generous loggia. The atypical height is the only element that suggests the mix of functions and the existence of several owners. The compact, robust, slightly defensive silhouette is inspired by the traditional typology of a house in Romania named “Kula”.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirProject gallerySee allShow lessRIBA ARHITEKTI Creates Ceramic Mosaic for ETI ShowroomArchitecture NewsAustralian Institute of Architects Announce 2014 National AwardsArchitecture News Share “COPY” O House / SYAA ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: SYAA Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Cosmin Dragomir+ 20 Share Romania Area:  390 m² Area:  390 m² Photographscenter_img CopyHouses•Bucharest, Romania O House / SYAASave this projectSaveO House / SYAA Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officeSYAAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBucharestHousesRomaniaPublished on November 07, 2014Cite: “O House / SYAA” 07 Nov 2014.

Occupying three sides of a large plot on the outskirts of the town of Sceaux, south of Paris, the building is a hybrid, multi-faceted object. The passer-by approaching the development along Rue Houdan will not see any fundamental difference to the other apartment buildings lining this radial road leading to the town centre. Standing back, he will doubtless be surprised by the top floors, which appear to be occupied by a wild, unrestrained roof-top extension. Completing his circumnavigation, he will discover a long frontage comprising a succession of different types of construction, monolith, apartment building and private house, united by a long plinth, playing on solid masses and recesses and complementarity of scale.Save this picture!Courtesy of Jean-François SchmitThe demonstrative appearance of the architecture satisfies an imperative requirement of the town council, which was only prepared to sell its land to a private developer on condition that it would feature outstanding architecture. The site, at the intersection of a major access route to the town centre and the Green Meridian – a linear park built in 2000 on the line of the Paris Meridian, which crosses France from north to south and borders the plot on its western boundary – called for high occupancy. The interplay of form is at its maximum at the intersection of the two major lines of communication, and particularly visible as it stands opposite a large unoccupied plot. The building assumes its role as a “landmark of the urban landscape”. The free volumes disposed on the roof evoke, through their colours and shapes, the weathering steel sculptures of Richard Serra. A monumental contemporary work, installed on the plinth of a building designed to be more neutral, in a town that is unaccustomed to grand architectural gestures: the development generated much discussion at public meetings organised by the town council.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe manifold forms accompany manifold typologies: There are twenty-seven types of apartment and a proportion of the housing is reserved for social landlords. A restaurant is to be established at street level on Rue Houdan. More than a building, the development can be seen as a small-scale district. It has its square around a cedar that had to be retained, its avenue – a planted walkway that extends far into the plot and serves some of the entrances to the building and the town house located at the end of the site. The area devoted to the development may ultimately seem low considering the number of dwellings built which puts it in the category of dense housing developments, in a market in which the reference remains the private house. The diversity and articulation of circulations contribute to acceptance of the density by a population that is petrified by the very word. Indeed, a proportion of the occupants come from suburban houses, finally convinced that a different lifestyle is possible in towns.Save this picture!Courtesy of Jean-François SchmitProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse GT / ArchinautenSelected ProjectsVertical Stone House / HENKIN SHAVIT Architecture & DesignSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Rue Gaston Lévy, 92330 Sceaux, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

The Court had on March 31st when it was seized of the matter in all fairness not wanting to interfere in the policy decisions taken by the Government since this was the first time a human crisis of a novel pandemic was being handled by the government called upon the Government to ascertain some primary facts as to what was the situation on ground across different states, gave ample opportunities to the government to satisfy the Court that the situation of transporting migrants was being effectively handled. Unfortunately the governments at the Centre and the State failed the migrants and were playing the blaming game. The Court chose not to turn a blind eye decided to rein in the administration seeing their incompetent and callous manner of handling a gigantic crisis issued directions amongst which the most prominent were- to not charge any money from migrant workers for their journey by either railways or buses, drove home the fact that it was the responsibility of the railways to provide for food and water to the migrant travellers and that the receiving state shall make necessary arrangements for providing transportation facilities to take the migrants from the railway station back to their homes and providing for quarantine shelters for those who exhibited symptoms of Covid-19, the Court was also vigilant about the inept registration procedure of the railways to procure tickets and that a large number of commissioned Shramik trains had been cancelled. The Court should be lauded for their intervention in averting a massive humanitarian crisis where people would have succumbed to hunger and exertion than the coronavirus. Having said that, let us examine the issue which has been the basis of the conflict. The Nationwide lockdown was brought in force to control and contain the spreading of Covid-19, the lockdown meant shutdown of all economic activity with people being urged to contain themselves within the four walls of their homes. The Prime Minister announced that everybody should stay at home with their families. Did he really mean that? The lockdown to those employed in small and informal industries surviving on daily earnings meant, no payment of wages which further meant that they couldn’t afford to pay for their lodging and had to scramble for their next meal from their meagre savings. To my mind what the migrant workers did was completely justified as they were only acting on the advice of the PM- to stay home with their families, so they marched on for miles undeterred by the might of the voyage or the heat or the crippling hunger of their children. Although it is my belief that this crisis could have been handled better by announcing a lockdown a week in advance and making requisite arrangements for the repatriation of those daily wagers who would have been rendered jobless in urban areas and weren’t financially able to face the lockdown. However, delving into the whatabouteries would open an undesirable Pandora’s box. Coming back to the Supreme Court tackling this sensitive crisis and the criticism surrounding it for initially adopting a conservative approach in relying on the government machinery lead to unnecessary acrimony. What was remiss amidst all this was the deliberate need to enforce the fundamental rights of the footsoldier and for the government to press into action the directive principles of state policy. While eminent persons belonging to the Institution as much as people from all walks of life have expressed their displeasure vocally and not in very complimentary terms for not acting ‘promptly’, it is their prerogative to do so in as much as the ‘diatribe’ of critics doesn’t impute any motive to the Justices individually. It appears to me that there a growing intolerance for expressing any individual opinions whatsoever about the way Courts chooses to deal with the cases before it. This hovering apprehension in my mind morphed itself into an unseemly reality when during the last hearing, where the Court took suo motu cognizance of the dehumanizing conditions the migrants were faced with, the Solicitor General, unfortunately made very rabid and rueful remarks against those who criticized the edifice of justice by resorting to grade the institution. The office of the Solicitor General though not a constitutional creation nevertheless is an office of repute and eminence, and is at equivalence with the office of a Supreme Court Judge. The onerous duties as second Chief law officer of the country binds the occupant of the office to make arguments dispassionately with certain restraint in a manner that the office is used to bridge the gap between the Executive and Judiciary, it does not bind on the Solicitor General to be a mere mouth-piece of the Government but to be more neutral and display behavior more becoming of a senior member and responsible officer of the Court. I have a deep sense of regret in the way the SG invoked the ‘vulture’ analogy, comparing public spirited citizens and journalists to vultures only because they telecasted visuals of the heightened levels of anguish of those who had to brave the heat while trudging back to their homes or for calling his own fellow advocates ‘prophets of doom’ & ‘armchair intellectuals’ and calling upon the opposite counsel to prove his contribution towards alleviating the migrant crisis. It baffles me to understand that why could not the second senior most law officer of the country be uninfluenced by the constructive criticism of those who questioned the actions or inaction of the government. The Government faltered and failed it’s migrant citizens at every step resulting in questioning the actions? In the pursuit of being an outstanding lawyer for one’s client, it was forgotten that a duty was owed to the Court in being fair and respecting? The Supreme Court has infact been kind to the Solicitor General when he said that the High Courts are running parallel governments. He completely lost track of the duties of the High Court where it has been recognized in State of Maharashtra V. Prabhu1 wherein their Lordships held: “It is the responsibility of the High Court as custodian of the Constitution to maintain the social balance by interfering where necessary for sake of justice and refusing to interfere where it is against the social interest and public good.” The Supreme Court even in the face of stinging criticism, which I still believe is in the nature of fair comment unless where the comment crossed all limits of decency and attributed personal motive to the judgment, did only uphold the long line of judicial dicta that it over time propounded. A few instances where the Court was enjoined upon its constitutional obligation to preserve and persevere the cause of justice for those who couldn’t afford it are listed below. The Court in Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Ltd. V. UOI2 while upholding the validity of a held that : “Social justice, therefore, forms the basis or progressive stability in the society and human progress. Economic justice means abolishing such economic conditions which remove the inequality of economic value between man and man, concentration of wealth and means of production in the hands of a few and are detrimental to the vast. Law, therefore, must seek to serve as flexible instrument of socio-economic adjustment to bring about peaceful socio-economic revolution under rule of law. The Constitution, the fundamental supreme lex distributes the sovereign power between the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary. The three instrumentalities, within their play endeavour to elongate the constitutional basic structure built in the Preamble, Fundamental Rights and Directives, namely, establishment of an egalitarian social order in which every citizen receives equality of opportunity and of status, social and economic justice. The court, therefore, must strive to give harmonious interpretation to propel forward march and progress towards establishing an egalitarian social order.” The Supreme Court, over a decade ago, while expounding on the PIL Jurisdiction3 said that it invoked such review jurisdiction to preserve rights of the downtrodden, Justice Dalveer Bhandari speaking for the Court held – “According to our opinion, the public interest litigation is an extremely important jurisdiction exercised by the Supreme Court and the High Courts. The Courts in a number of cases have given important directions and passed orders which have brought positive changes in the country. The Courts’ directions have immensely benefited marginalized sections of the society in a number of cases. It has also helped in protection and preservation of ecology, environment, forests, marine life, wildlife etc. etc. The court’s directions to some extent have helped in maintaining probity and transparency in the public life. This court while exercising its jurisdiction of judicial review realized that a very large section of the society because of extreme poverty, ignorance, discrimination and illiteracy had been denied justice for time immemorial and in fact they have no access to justice. Pre-dominantly, to provide access to justice to the poor, deprived, vulnerable, discriminated and marginalized sections of the society, this court has initiated, encouraged and propelled the public interest litigation. The litigation is upshot and product of this court’s deep and intense urge to fulfill its bounded duty and constitutional obligation.” The Court again in G. Sundarrajan V. UOI4 dealt with the crucial question of a nuclear policy impacting the right of life of the inhabitants in the peripheral limits of the nuclear plant, it pithily summarized its anxiety by remarking- “We have already indicated that these issues are to be addressed to policy makers, not to courts because the destiny of a nation is shaped by the people’s representatives and not by a handful of judges, unless there is an attempt to tamper with the fundamental Constitutional principles or basic structure of the Constitution. We are however deeply concerned with the safety and security of the people of this country, its environment, its flora and fauna, its marine life, ecology, bio-diversity and so on which the policy makers cannot be on the guise of national policy, mutilate or rob of, in such an event the courts can unveil the mask and find out the truth for the safety, security and welfare of the people and the mother earth.” Justice Krishna Iyer in his iconic verve dealing with a case involving provision of maintenance under the CrPC5 made an observation which remains germane in essence, he said that ” We have no doubt that sections of statutes calling for construction by Courts are not petrified print but vibrant words with social functions to fulfil the brooding presence of constitutional empathy for the weaker sections like women and children must inform interpretation if it is to have social relevance. So viewed, it is possible to be selective in picking out that interpretation out of two alternatives which would advance the cause- the cause of the derelicts.” Unelected People may not know to run the country but they definitely have the right to highlight the shortcomings of the Government in its administration and every concerned citizen should stand up or dare to hold a mirror to the authorities and show them what is going astray and to remedy the wrong. The Supreme Court may have chosen to not interfere in the policy decision of the State but it can crack the whip and give a rap on the knuckles of the Executive when it has lost its way. The Supreme Court was only fair to have extended a long rope to the executive to establish its control over the crisis but when the executive continuously did not meet the expectations of the migrants, the Court was left with no choice but to interfere.

Justice Atul Sreedharan was considering an application under Section 438 of the Cr.P.C. for grant of anticipatory bail to applicant who was apprehending his arrest in connection with a FIR under sections 294, 498-A and 34 IPC and sections 3 and 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act. The Single Judge recorded that the applicant is the husband, whose wife stays separately and has filed the FIR on 19.6.2020. The allegations in the said FIR were that the applicant abuses the complainant, demands a gold chain of five tolas and is asking for the land which is in the name of her father to be transferred, locks the victim in the room and when she asks for medical aid, he does not provide her, besides allegations of unnatural sex and harassment for sex. Looking to the facts and circumstances of the case, the Single Bench found that the allegations are “very trivial” and “can happen in any matrimonial home”. Commenting that “marriages would always experience some friction or the other”, and noting that there are no signs of injuries on the body of the complainant as per the MLC, the Court expressed the opinion that if the applicant goes to jail, the marriage would almost surely come to an end as thereafter there would be hardly any chances of compromise. “However, as the allegations reveal that they are trivial in nature, a window of compromise or settlement is always kept open”, remarked the Single Bench, in granting pre-arrest bail. The counsel for the applicant submitted that the FIR is pursuant to a complaint that he made before the Police Station, that his in-laws have taken away his wife and are not allowing her to come and join his society. The said complaint was made on 8.6.2020 i.e. on a date preceding the registration of the FIR. It was further argued that he has preferred an application under section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act for restitution of conjugal rights after the registration of the FIR as he could not do it before on account of the lock down due to COVID-19. The counsel for the complainant objected to the grant of anticipatory bail in view of the allegations levelled against the applicant in the FIR which, according to him, are grave and serious. Advocate Mr. Surendra Patel appeared for the applicant, Mr. Utkarsh Agrawal, as the Panel Lawyer for the respondent-State, Mr. Paritosh Trivedi, for the objector.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Ravindra Bhat observed thus while setting aside an order passed by National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission which declined to take a written statement on the ground that it has has no power to extend the time for filing the response to the complaint beyond 45 days.The court noted that, in this case, the period of 30 days to file written statement expired on 12.08.2020 and extended period of 15 days expired on 27.08.2020 and the same was filed only thereafter. It is true that the decision of the Constitution Bench of this Court in New India Assurance Co. Ltd.  Hilli Multipurpose Cold Storage (P) Ltd.,(2020) 5 SCC 757 clearly provides that no written statement is to be allowed to be filed beyond the period of 45 days as per Section 38 of the Consumer Protection Act, 2019, the bench noted.However, the bench referred to its order dated 23.3.2020 passed by it in Suo Motu Writ Petition “Re: Cognizance for Extension of Limitation” in which it was ordered thus: “To obviate such difficulties and to ensure that lawyers/litigants do not have to come physically to file such proceedings in respective Courts/Tribunals across the country including this Court, it is hereby ordered that a period of limitation in all such proceedings, irrespective of the limitation prescribed under the general law or Special Laws whether condonable or not shall stand extended w.e.f. 15th March 2020 till further order/s to be passed by this Court in present proceedings.”The bench, therefore, observed that the limitation for filing the written statement in the present proceedings before the National Commission would be deemed to have been extended as it is clear from the order dated 23.03.2020 that the extended period of limitation was applicable to all petitions/ applications/suits/appeals and all other proceedings.

First heat wave of the season possible from Chicago to New York

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — It’s officially been summer for less than a week, but the temperatures from Chicago to New York are making it feel like the height of the season.Chicago’s Midway International Airport hit 90 degrees Wednesday for the first time since last September.Denver hit 90 degrees for the first time since last September, as well. And New York’s LaGuardia Airport hit 90 degrees for the first time this year.For it to be considered a heat wave, it needs to hit 90 three days in a row in Chicago, New York City and Philadelphia. More 90s are in the forecast over the next few days.The heat will even reach parts of the Upper Midwest, where the Twin Cities could be in the mid 90s by this weekend.Severe weather outlookMore than 4 inches of rain fell just south of Chicago since Wednesday night, producing flash flooding, stranding vehicles and prompting water rescues.Up to 8 inches of rain fell in southwest Missouri, producing flash flooding there as well.There were 116 damaging storm reports Thursday around the country, including Oregon, where trees feel on homes in Salem, and hail covered ground in Portland.Severe storms are expected Thursday from the Great Lakes all the way to the northern Rockies. There are more storms expected near Chicago, all the way to the Twin Cities and west to most of Montana.The biggest threat is damaging winds, hail and a few tornadoes. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Inclusion of mountain wave-induced cooling for the formation of PSCs over the Antarctic Peninsula in a chemistry-climate model

first_imgAn important source of polar stratospheric clouds (PSCs), which play a crucial role in controlling polar stratospheric ozone depletion, is from the temperature fluctuations induced by mountain waves. However, this formation mechanism is usually missing in chemistry–climate models because these temperature fluctuations are neither resolved nor parameterised. Here, we investigate the representation of stratospheric mountain-wave-induced temperature fluctuations by the UK Met Office Unified Model (UM) at climate scale and mesoscale against Atmospheric Infrared Sounder satellite observations for three case studies over the Antarctic Peninsula. At a high horizontal resolution (4 km) the regional mesoscale configuration of the UM correctly simulates the magnitude, timing, and location of the measured temperature fluctuations. By comparison, at a low horizontal resolution (2.5° × 3.75°) the global climate configuration fails to resolve such disturbances. However, it is demonstrated that the temperature fluctuations computed by a mountain wave parameterisation scheme inserted into the climate configuration (which computes the temperature fluctuations due to unresolved mountain waves) are in relatively good agreement with the mesoscale configuration responses for two of the three case studies. The parameterisation was used to include the simulation of mountain-wave-induced PSCs in the global chemistry–climate configuration of the UM. A subsequent sensitivity study demonstrated that regional PSCs increased by up to 50% during July over the Antarctic Peninsula following the inclusion of the local mountain-wave-induced cooling phase.last_img read more

Soccer star Neymar Jr. accused of rape, father denies wrongdoing

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailBuda Mendes/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Brazilian soccer star Neymar da Silva Santos Jr. was accused on Friday of raping a woman in Paris last month, Sao Paulo Federal Police told ABC News. The unidentified woman, who is also from Brazil, filed a complaint against Neymar alleging that the soccer player flew her out to Paris and paid for her hotel room, where he visited her “drunk,” police said.The woman, who landed in Paris on May 15, alleges that after some flirting, Neymar became aggressive and forced her to have sex with him, according to police. She traveled back to Brazil on May 17, and says that she was too affected to go to the police immediately, police said. Neymar and the woman met on Instagram, police said.Neymar’s father, who is also his agent, appeared on Brazilian TV Saturday, where he said that he had messages between the two proving Neymar was innocent, ESPN reported. “This is a tough moment. If we can’t show the truth quickly it will be a snowball. If we have to show Neymar’s WhatsApp messages and the conversations with this lady, we will,” he said, according to ESPN.“I know that my son can be accused of many things, but I know the boy that he is, the man that he is, the son of a father and a mother,” he continued. “We will push for justice to be served as quickly as possible.” Neymar is currently in Brazil training with the national team for Copa America. The star was suspended three games from his club team Paris Saint-Germain, last month by the French soccer federation after getting into an altercation with a fan. It was the second time this season he was suspended after a three-game ban by the UEFA Champions League for an earlier incident criticizing a referee. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Swimmer Missing Off Ninth Street in Ocean City

first_imgAs a Coast Guard boat searches for a missing swimmer nearby on Sunday night, a sign at Ninth Street Beach warns visitors to stay out of the water after the lifeguards leave for the day. As a Coast Guard boat searches for a missing swimmer nearby on Sunday night, a sign at Ninth Street Beach warns visitors to stay out of the water after the lifeguards leave for the day.A massive search for a swimmer missing off Ninth Street Beach was temporarily called off as darkness set in on Sunday night.The Ocean Beach Patrol’s Rapid Response Team was deployed at 6:45 p.m. Sunday  (June 29) after receiving a call about multiple swimmers in distress near the Ninth Street jetty, according to Ocean City Fire Chief Chris Breunig, who oversees the beach patrol.Responding on personal watercraft and from the beach, OCBP lifeguards rescued 14 of 15 swimmers, Breunig said.According to unconfirmed reports, a Philadelphia family of two parents and two children were among the rescued. A third child, a 14-year-old boy, did not return to the beach.The search for the boy will resume at dawn, Breunig said.The U.S. Coast Guard, the Ocean City Fire Department, and the marine units of the Ocean City Police Department and New Jersey State Police assisted in the search on Sunday evening.A jetty at Ninth Street forms a strong rip current that pulls swimmers into deeper water, and the beach has been the site of drownings and near-drownings when the Ocean City Beach Patrol is off-duty.The dangerous conditions there were part of the reason the OCBP formed its Rapid Response Team in 2012. The team is a mobile unit that does not patrol individual beaches but is able to travel by Waverunner or ATV to conduct rescues. The patrol also guards Ninth Street and other downtown beaches for extended hours on Fridays and Saturdays.On Sundays, the beach patrol leaves work at 5:30 p.m., and witnesses reported hearing the lifeguards issue their customary warning to bathers to stay out of the water when the beach is unpatrolled.The Ocean City Beach Patrol boasts that nobody has ever drowned on a patrolled beach in its 116-year history. Breunig said several of the swimmers rescued on Sunday evening got in trouble after slipping on rocks while playing on the jetty.A light southeast wind created some small waves and chop on Sunday afternoon and evening. Witnesses said bathers had been able to reach a sandbar for much of the day, but low tide passed at about 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.__________Sign up for OCNJ Daily’s free newsletter and breaking news alerts“Like” us on Facebooklast_img read more

PHOTOS: Lotus Lights Up The Vic Theatre On A Snowy Night In Chicago

first_imgLoad remaining images The snow fell heavily in Chicago as the third night of Lotus’ winter tour passed through the city. The band must have brought the blizzard with them, after blowing out the previous shows in West Virginia and Ohio. Chicago has always been the place for bands to showcase some of their best work, new and old alike. February 9th at the Vic Theatre would follow the same pattern, as the band jammed to new heights. Lotus has never been a band to disappoint, and all in attendance were ready to dance their troubles away.Following an opening set from Marvel Years, Lotus came onstage after 8:30 pm. The band opened up with “Grayrigg” from 2009’s Oil on Grass/Feather on Wood, whizzing the room into a groove. “Opo” swiftly followed. From there, the band went into their first extended segment of the night. The section included “Inspector Norse”, a jam in G, “Trip”, “Mikesnack”, another jam in the tune of G and, finally, a graceful landing on “Tip of the Tongue”. The energy in the room was harnessed perfectly, and the crowd was wildly pleased with the improvisation and funk flavor running throughout each song. A well-executed “Forgotten Name” came next, followed by a raging “128” to close the set.The band returned with the first “Fearless” of 2018, followed shortly after by the vastly whimsical land of “Kalea” before diverting into a high-flying “Livingston Storm”, once again sending the crowd into a frenzy. As the notes flowed up and away, the band came together for “Slow Cookin”.Next, the band exploded into “ClapClapClap”, taking time to experiment with their electronic influences. To end the extended jam–and the second set–the band effortlessly found their way back to “Jump Off”. A crowd favorite, “Jump Off” was truly the cherry on top of a wonderful night. Before closing the final curtain, the crowd enjoyed an inspired “In an Outline” encore. Catch Lotus next as their winter tour continues in Wisconsin on the 10th at the Turner Hall in Milwaukee.You can check out a beautiful gallery of photos from Lotus’ show at The Vic via photographer Aaron Bradley.For a full list of Lotus’ upcoming tour dates, head to the band’s website.Setlist: Lotus | The Vic Theatre | Chicago, IL | 2/9/18Set 1: Grayrigg, Opo, Inspector Norse > G > Trip > Mikesnack > C > Tip of the Tongue, Forgotten Name, 128Set 2 : Fearless, Kalea, Livingston Storm > F# > A > Slow Cookin > Bush Pilot > ClapClapClap > G > C > Jump OffEncore: In An Outline Lotus | The Vic Theater | Chicago, IL | 2/9/18 | Photos: Aaron Bradleylast_img read more

Navigant: Solar plus storage turning variable green power into a dispatchable resource

first_imgNavigant: Solar plus storage turning variable green power into a dispatchable resource FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Utility Dive:Storage-plus-renewable energy projects, in particular solar, are expected to play an important role as electric utilities develop their strategies for the gird of the future. The risk and cost associated with battery technology continues to decline, enabling utilities to transition large-scale renewables from intermittent to dispatchable energy resources.The utility-scale energy storage market has seen a steady growth since 2011, with more than 8.9 GW of non-pumped hydro storage projects coming online over the past seven years, according to Navigant Research, “How Utilities Can Look Beyond Natural Gas with Cost-Effective Solar Plus Storage Strategies.”One of the technologies driving market growth is lithium-ion batteries, the report said. The latest analysis showed that lithium-ion batteries accounted for 29.4% of non-pumped storage capacity and 70% of advanced battery capacity developed since 2011.Due to the advancements in lithium-ion battery technology, Navigant Research expects that PPA prices for projects combining energy storage and renewable resources will continue to decline as their adoption expands. Storage-plus PPAs are already less expensive than the LCOE for combined cycle natural gas in the United States, the report found.“In 2018, storage-plus made its first shift from the validation and first-mover adopters to diffuse adoption led by utilities,” Alex Eller, senior research analyst with Navigant Research, said in a statement. “The accurate valuing and positioning of storage-plus by utilities will continue to drive the market in coming years.”Regulators and utilities should push for all-resource solicitation to take advantage of the price disruption in the area of storage-plus renewable energy and to meet aggressive renewable portfolio standard targets in the process, the report said.More: Solar + storage projects to drive utility-scale deployment of batteries: Navigantlast_img read more

White Water Healing: Paddling with Purpose

first_imgMeanwhile, elite paddler Shawn “Animal” Malone organized a team of volunteer ambassadors consisting of the Southeast’s premier whitewater boaters, including Matthew Thomas, Eli Helbert, Jennifer Taylor, and Jerrod Jones. All of them volunteer their time, money, and talents to provide whitewater excitement to a group of people who might never get that exposure without them. “All guides come away enriched,” said Malone. Together, they created Whitewater Healing, which, in its first year of existence won Canoe & Kayak Magazine’s 2016 “Paddle With Purpose” Award.  “Often people don’t know how to engage a child with autism, especially one who doesn’t talk,” says Will’s father, Bill. “But with Shawn, the communication and understanding just seemed to come naturally and from his heart. Will reads people very well and he knows Shawn is someone he can trust and be himself with.”  “Personally, Whitewater Healing opened my eyes to challenges that some families face.” Put a bunch of kids with autism and their families in rubber rafts and shoot them through the Nantahala Gorge with guides who know nothing about autism. That’s the basic idea put forth by Canadian whitewater canoe legend and global swiftwater rescue guru Jim Coffey to a couple of self-described dirtbag boaters from Chattanooga.  14-year-old twins Daniel and Darren Pernell, along with their 16-year-old sister Olivia, were first timers at Whitewater Healing WNC 2018 and vow to return next year.   Coffey teamed up with Endless River Adventures, based on the Nantahala River in Western North Carolina, which quickly committed to provide necessary boats, gear, and logistic support.  My own son Tuck has had similar experiences with Whitewater Healing. In 2016, he and other paddlers were offered the opportunity to leap off a large boulder into the frigid Nantahala River. Already Tuck was cold, wet, hungry, tired after a long day on the river, and now he was afraid, too. For many people with autism, moving forward under these conditions is impossible. I knew how badly he wanted to join the others in this adventure, but it had to be his decision, not mine. center_img Whitewater Healing helps kids with autism brave new waters “I’ll be walking with this stoke for a long time,” added elite paddler and Whitewater Healing volunteer Nathan Cline after this year’s event. “We decided that we could use our talents and our connections in the whitewater world to present the magic of whitewater to people who are challenged with autism,” said Coffey. 12-year-old Will Brittain, of York, S.C., has developed a very special relationship with paddler Shawn Malone over four years of paddling together on the Nantahala.  “It was a super chill event, very similar to Surfer’s Healing,”  said Marty Pernell, their father. “The boys’ disabilities can be very isolating for the entire family. An event like this, for the entire family is priceless.” He did it. Afterwards, I asked him why. Tuck said, “Sometimes the fear won’t go away, so you have to do it afraid.”last_img read more

Peru Takes Part in 2019 Asia-Pacific Submarine Conference

first_imgBy Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo April 10, 2019 Peruvian Navy Submarine Force officers took part in the 18th annual Asia-Pacific Submarine Conference at the invitation of the Submarine Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet. The event was held February 12-15 in San Diego, California. The Peruvian Navy designated as its representatives Captain César Augusto Mauricio Jaramillo, commander of the Submarine Squadron; and Lieutenant Commander Wilfredo Berto Muñoz, second commander of the Rescue Group. “We strengthened collaboration in combined operations to rescue submarine crews sunk in the Pacific,” Capt. Mauricio told Diálogo. “We also gained knowledge about the latest technological advances for emergencies.” In 2001, the U.S. force established the conference that each year gathers navies that operate submarines, such as Argentina, Australia, Canada, the United States, Indonesia, Japan, Peru, and the United Kingdom, to exchange survival and interoperability knowledge of rescue resources. The objective is to promote mutual understanding and open international cooperation channels. “These forums involve us in technological advances, standardizing procedures, and the update of international cooperation channels,” Lt. Cdr. Berto told Diálogo. “Although the conference was only for Asia-Pacific, we know that there is worldwide interest and awareness of what might happen to any unit, either submarine or surface, in a catastrophe.” The Peruvian Submarine Force is the oldest in South America. It has six class 209 units, and started a modernization process in 2017. Cutting-edge technology The U.S. Navy Undersea Rescue Command (URC) presented its Pressurized Rescue Module (PRM). The mini submarine can submerge at a depth of 600 meters to connect to a submarine at the bottom of the ocean at up to a 45-degree angle in both pitch and roll. PRM can rescue up to 16 people at a time. “Weather and bathymetry [underwater depth] influence sea search-and-rescue operations. It’s essential to know URC’s rescue module, as well as the procedure to move the equipment in case of emergency,” Capt. Mauricio said. “The U.S. Navy’s high-tech equipment is compatible with submarines and rescue systems of other navies worldwide.” Participating countries agreed to look into ways to support PRM deployment in their jurisdictions. The Peruvian Navy analyzes resources and capabilities in country to mobilize the mini submarine by air, sea, or land to save submarine crews in danger. “It’s important to be prepared all over with special infrastructure and tools to receive help as soon as possible,” Lt. Cdr. Berto added. The U.S. Navy also presented the Submarine Rescue Chamber designed during World War II. It can rescue up to six people at a time and reach a submarine at a depth of 250 meters. The Navy also displayed its remotely operated vehicles, undersea exploring robots that send real-time information on damaged vehicles. “It was useful to learn about URC’s assets, exchange information, and reinforce collaboration with several international organizations, such as the International Submarine Escape and Rescue Liaison Office,” said Capt. Mauricio. “Opening communication channels with the U.S. Undersea Rescue Command is crucial for the Peruvian Navy.” Hope decreases The Argentine Navy delegation shared a technical presentation concerning its submarine ARA San Juan, which disappeared November 2017 in the Atlantic Ocean with 44 people aboard. In late 2018, a U.S. company found the remains of the ARA San Juan 907 meters deep in the Argentine Patagonia, but was unable to bring it up. Something similar happened in Peru in 1988, when the submarine BAP Pacocha sank following an accident with a Japanese vessel. Eight Peruvian Navy personnel died. A team of 150 members, including 70 divers from the Peruvian Navy Rescue Service, worked for more than a year to bring the submarine afloat. The submarine prow emerged in July 1989, the Navy indicated on its website. “Submarines have testing, operational, and collapse depths. When one of the vessels falls below its collapse depth, hope decreases,” said Capt. Mauricio. “Help can arrive immediately, but sometimes the consequences can be dire, as was the case in the ARA San Juan’s tragedy.” Interoperability and organization Interoperability among the countries that take part in a search-and-rescue mission captured the attention of everyone at the conference. During an emergency, eight navies worldwide join efforts in different areas: the United Kingdom leads the technical area, Canada conducts medical efforts, and the United States leads the operational part. Sweden, Norway, Japan, Australia, France, and the United States work aerial and mobility areas. The Peruvian Navy is preparing for those situations. The Submarine Force trains with the support of the Submarine Learning Center on breakdown control, stations to trim submarines to go to the surface, and surface tactics maneuvers. “We’ve been sending submarine units to the United States to train for more than 15 years. Each unit has a crew of 45 members,” said Capt. Mauricio. “In November 2019, the Royal Australian Navy will conduct a multinational rescue exercise, and it would be beneficial for us if we could participate,” he concluded.last_img read more

Cuba’s Torture Methods in Venezuela Take a Brutal Toll

first_imgBy ShareAmerica / Edited by Diálogo staff February 26, 2020 Cuba’s influence has caused a sharp increase in brutal torture methods used on prisoners in Venezuela, according to a recent report by the CASLA Institute, a nongovernmental organization (NGO) that promotes human rights and democracy in Latin America.In 2019, Luis Almagro, secretary general of the Organization of American States, decried Cuba’s training of Venezuelan police in torture tactics. Cuba deployed tens of thousands of personnel to Venezuela to give lessons in torture to special police forces and intelligence agencies.Asphyxiation, electric shock, waterboarding, sexual violence, and intoxication with unknown psychotropic substances are some of the torture methods that have intensified in 2018-2019, the CASLA Institute report indicates. According to the NGO, new techniques were also introduced, such as the piercing of the prisoner’s fingernails and toenails to run wires, or inserting electrically charged needles in the genitals to increase pain during shocks.Cubans intelligence agents and officers belonging to the Cuban Liaison and Cooperation Group (GRUCE, in Spanish) — a Cuban military unit permanently based in Venezuela — not only train Venezuelan security forces, but also participate in the torture of prisoners, the NGO says. The report goes on to denounce the Cuban ambassador to Venezuela as the top facilitator of torture training, asserting that “nothing happens without his knowledge.”Known among Venezuelan security forces as the “Islanders,” Cuban agents operate from Fort Tiuna in Caracas, but also have access to clandestine torture centers located within intelligence agencies and homes seized from criminals across the country, the NGO says.Cuban agents, the report continues, also train officers of the Bolivarian Armed Forces in repression, intimidation, and follow-up techniques to spy on their own colleagues and families, political and social leaders, and to monitor the social unrest.“With the guidance and encouragement of Russia and Cuba, the [Nicolás] Maduro regime arrests, tortures, and even kills our citizens,” said Venezuelan Interim President Juan Guaidó in an editorial published in the Miami Herald. “We demand that the regimes of Russia and Cuba stop torture and abuse, and leave our country forever.”The use of torture has been essential for the Maduro regime to punish opponents, and extract confessions from victims, including accusations, the report concludes. The increase in torture, the NGO adds, allows the regime to cultivate fear and to continue social control.last_img read more

Saudi plans for Newcastle may not be on scale of Man City transformation

first_imgTopics : A bid by a Saudi Arabian state fund to secure ownership of Newcastle United is drawing scrutiny, but even if it succeeds it is unlikely that the petrodollars will transform the Premier League club into a powerhouse in the near future.The prospect of the Saudi bid fuelling a rapid rise to the top, in the manner of Manchester City’s four title successes under owners from the United Arab Emirates, has thrilled many Newcastle fans, but several analysts believe that the investment impact may not be on such a scale.A group fronted by British financier Amanda Staveley, with an expected 80% investment from the Saudi sovereign wealth fund PIF and 10 percent involvement from billionaire brothers David and Simon Reuben, have made a reported 300 million pound ($375 million) bid to buy the club from British businessman Mike Ashley. Investors wanting to become owners of English professional clubs have to show they have no unspent criminal conviction for fraud, are not bankrupt, and have not been banned from serving as a company director.Newcastle supporters, however, are mostly excited at the prospect of major investment in their team, which has not featured in the Champions League since 2004 and has not won the English title since 1927 or FA Cup since 1955, despite claiming one of the country’s largest fan bases.The timing of the bid, though, is far from ideal — the Premier League is currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. On Friday, Moody’s Investors Service cut Saudi Arabia’s outlook to “negative” from “stable”, saying the oil price crash has raised fiscal risks for the Gulf nation.”It is a relatively risky undertaking at a time when it looks like the kingdom will need a lot of liquid assets to finance deficits and maintain its currency peg,” says Steffen Hertog, Associate Professor in Comparative Politics at the London School of Economics.Improving influence Hertog, like a number of observers, believes the Saudi involvement is aimed at improving the country’s influence and image outside of its borders but says economic realities may limit PIF’s ambitions.”It definitely is part of an Abu Dhabi style soft power strategy, but I am not sure how much extra money they will pour into the club. Given current fiscal developments and the travails of some of the PIF’s other assets, there are likely to be constraints to Saudi generosity,” he said.Manchester City’s UAE owners have been closely involved in the major decision-making at the club with Khaldoon Al Mubarak chairman since September 2008 but that path may not be followed by the Saudis.”PIF does not have the experience or capacity to be ‘hands on’ so would likely take a back seat,” says Neil Quilliam, CEO of Gulf-focused consultancy Castlereagh Associates.Saudi Finance Minister Mohammed al-Jadaan addressed, in a television interview on Saturday, the issue of investments abroad, without directly mentioning PIF’s potential bid for Newcastle.”The investments are highly important because they have returns we can use in case of a crisis to curb the deficit. If we use the reserves, we consume the assets and won’t have any returns.”Also, these types of crises create investment opportunities. Many companies reduce their investments, which creates opportunities to invest in them,” he told Al Arabiya news channel.PIF manages over $300 billion in assets. It has been in existence since 1971, but became a more active investor since 2015 when it started reporting to a high-level economic body headed by the kingdom’s de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.PIF has been tasked with delivering on Prince Mohammed’s ambitious economic transformation drive to reduce the kingdom’s reliance on oil revenues.The fund is headed by former Saudi banker Yasir al-Rumayyan, whose title is governor and is seen as close to Prince Mohammed.Financial sources have told Reuters that the crown prince had a say on many strategic PIF decisions, such as Softbank’s Vision fund investment.center_img The proposal faces some early obstacles and the prospect of Saudi ownership of a top English club has been condemned by human rights groups.Saudi Arabia was internationally criticized after the 2018 murder of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the kingdom’s Istanbul consulate, the Yemen war and the detention of several women’s rights activists.Added to that there is the long-running dispute with Qatari company BeInSport regarding allegations of Saudi tolerance of ‘pirate’ broadcasts in the kingdom — an issue which has been raised by some parliamentarians in the UK.The proposed takeover is now being reviewed as part of the Premier League’s “owners’ and directors’ test”, which was previously known as the ‘fit and proper person’s test’.last_img read more

Indonesia renews call to maintain UN peacekeeping operations during COVID-19

first_imgThe COVID-19 crisis had disrupted peacekeeping operations (PKO), making it difficult for conflicting parties to engage and discuss peace, while also limiting the movement and activities of peacekeepers, Retno said.Access to humanitarian aid and logistics had been disrupted due to the unavailability of transportation, she added.Read also: COVID-19: Nearly 90,000 Indonesians return home after more than 700 infected abroadIn this regard, Indonesia continued to stress the importance of ensuring the safety and health of UN peacekeepers at the UN Security Council (UNSC) meetings. Indonesia has renewed its call for the world to refocus on maintaining and supporting peacekeeping operations, as countries in conflict are being hit even harder by the COVID-19 pandemic than countries at peace.Foreign Minister Retno L.P. Marsudi on Thursday reiterated Indonesia’s concerns about the impacts of the coronavirus crisis in conflict countries, saying that Indonesia was committed to upholding any and all efforts to resolve conflict and build peace.“As we are all aware, COVID-19 has an enormous impact for all countries, including countries affected by conflict. The situation on the ground, which is already fragile due to ongoing conflicts, is now worsened by COVID-19 due to limited health infrastructure, fragile security, challenging economic situations and humanitarian conditions,” Retno told a press briefing on May 14. “At least 13 countries with PKO have confirmed COVID-19 cases. Sixty-four peacekeepers have contracted the virus,” Retno said, citing UN data.Although no Indonesian peacekeepers had contracted the disease to date, the country remained fully alert in following developments on the ground, she added.Indonesia is the largest country among UNSC member states in terms of contributing peacekeeping troops, and the eighth largest among all UN member states.“Therefore, Indonesia will closely follow the impact of COVID-19 on our peacekeepers,” Retno said.On March 23, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres issued an appeal for a global ceasefire during the COVID-19 pandemic.”To warring parties, I say: Pull back from hostilities. Put aside mistrust and animosity. Silence the guns, stop the artillery, end the airstrikes. This is crucial to help create corridors for life-saving aid,” he states in the press release published on the UN website.“As a non-permanent member of the UNSC, Indonesia welcomes and supports the [UN secretary-general’s] call,” Retno stressed at Thursday’s briefing.Read also: Indonesia to prioritize quality in peacekeeping contributions as UN funds evaporateAlong with other members of the UNSC, Indonesia was currently drafting a resolution on measures to address COVID-19 challenges, particularly peace and security.“Unfortunately, the draft has yet to reach consensus. The longer the UNSC cannot agree on the draft, [the more] it sends a negative signal on the ground, and could even worsen the situation for [people] in many conflict areas,” Retno said.The UNSC should focus on enhancing cooperation to protect the people in conflict areas, and Indonesia was ready to continue contributing to negotiations on the draft resolution, she concluded.Topics :last_img read more

High cost of travel affecting Dominica’s tourism sector

first_imgSimon WalshThe leading organization on the island that has been fostering and promoting tourism in Dominica for more than three decades, is citing accessibility to the island as one of the main challenges currently affecting the industry.At the 40th Annual General Meeting of the Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association (DHTA), the President, Mr Simon Walsh noted that while DHTA celebrated many accomplishments during his tenure as president, the challenges continue to mount amidst the global financial crisis.The DHTA President believes that the high travel cost and the prolonged travel time to Dominica are two of the major factors contributing to the decline in the industry.“The number one issue in the tourism industry from 1972 to 2011 is access to Dominica. Let us not ever forget access, access, access. There has been improvements and I can honestly say that the private se ctor recognizes this fact that The Discover Dominica Authority and the Ministry of Tourism are throwing themselves across that wall and trying to improve on that issue. We’ve seen Air BVI coming in from St Maarteen, we’ve seen JEANS Ferry Service coming in to Portsmouth starting this month, we have Sunshine Airline that will be servicing San Juan Airports hopefully in October; so we’re seeing improvements. But the brutal reality is how much does it cost to come from the east coast of the United States to Dominica? In December, it will be US$1,200, taking two days to reach to Washington D.C. So if you’re sitting in Washington D.C and thinking of taking a trip of a lifetime, you could be in Africa on safari looking at elephants; cheaper and faster than you could be in Dominica looking at a broadfish.” The DHTA’s is pledging to continue its mission to promote tourism and related services as a critical sector in Dominica’s economic development and to work closely with all stakeholders to create and sustain an enabling environment that will support members’ efforts to improve the standards of their products and the quality of their services.Mr Walsh said that they also recognize the efforts of Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) and the Ministry of Tourism in putting strategies and plans in place in addressing the critical issues affecing the tourism industry.“It’s a difficult financial world that we are in right now and many airlines are losing money. So no matter how many good things we do, if we can’t find an airline that can make money flying into Dominica, we’ll never find an airline to fly into Dominica. They have to do it and they have to make money. We should think of new and different ways because we’re having trouble convincing airlines to come. How can the government of Dominica sit down and partnership with an airline and create an airline that will fly and service the tourism industry of Dominica? The DHTA’s job is to make sure that the stakeholders’ issues are represented in the public sector”.The tourism industry is currently the leading contributor to Dominica’s economy. In 2010, tourism contributed EC$243 million to the economy, an increase by sixty eight percent (68%) compared to 2005, just five years ago.Hon. Ian DouglasMinister for Tourism and Legal Affairs, Honorable Ian Douglas said that the government has been working closely with stakeholders like Discover Dominica Authority to ensure that the experience is a lasting one for visitors.He confirmed that great strides have been made in delivery of services within the industry, however more focus needs to be placed on marketing the destination.“We need to be cognizant that this industry is quite competitive, and in order to survive in this market we have to make our destination as marketable as our competitors. Our service has to be of international standard, the product we offer (including our rooms) has to be up to international standards, visitors are very savvy, their expectations are great and we always have to meet and exceed their expectations to keep them coming back and to spread the good news about Dominica as a destination”.The Government is also placing great emphasis and focus on community/rural tourism, an area the minister says will strengthen tourism capacity and potential in several communities around the island.“I am sure many of you are aware that the Tourism Sector Development Programme supported by the European Union’s Special Framework of Assistance (SFA) 2006, which was implemented from 2008 to 2010, has injected approximately €1.4 million or EC5.1 million into the programme. This programme targeted specific projects in community tourism to foster expansion of rural tourism, provision of technical assistance to community groups and destination marketing. Under the rural tourism component of the Tourism Sector Development Programme, eleven new and existing community tourism groups were strengthened through human resource development, infrastructural development and marketing. Specifically, infrastructure work on construction of new facilities were undertaken at the Indian River in Portsmouth, Wotten Waven, Bellevue Chopin and Layou. Upgrading of faciliteis was undertaken in Vieille Case and at the L’escalier Tete Chien in Sineku.The New Board which will now serve from 2011 to 2011 consists of:President – Ms. Yvonne ArmourImmediate Past President and Director – Simon WalshVice President – Nikima RoyerExecutive Secretary – Renee Whitchurch Aird-DouglasTreasurer – Carol RabessDirectors -Richard Stanton, Arienne Perryman, Michael Bunche and Tanaquil PfundAdministrative Assistant, David ThornhillThe Dominica Hotel & Tourism Association (DHTA) was first formed in 1972.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!

Saints appoint Rogers as interim CEO

first_imgSouthampton appointed Gareth Rogers as interim chief executive officer on Wednesday as owner Katharina Liebherr declared her intention to stabilise the club after a torrid week off the field. “I am delighted that Gareth has agreed to step into this role,” she said. “After the events of the past week, my priority has been to bring stability to the management of the club and I am pleased that we have been able to make this appointment from within. “We had a very positive meeting with all the staff of the club on Monday and I am sure Gareth’s appointment will be warmly received.” Rogers, who has been with Southampton since 2011, also declared his delight at taking up the role. “I am very pleased to be able help the club by stepping up to the CEO’s job on an interim basis,” he said. “We have a fantastic staff and everyone is working together to make sure the club ends the season as strongly as possible.” With a replacement for Cortese in place and assurances from Pochettino that he does not intend to step down, Liebherr again insisted she does not want to sell any of Southampton’s key talent. “Having inherited Southampton Football Club following my father’s untimely passing, I am delighted and proud of the exhilarating period of success that the team and the staff has enjoyed these past few years, buoyed by the unstinting support of the fans,” she continued. “I am absolutely committed to ensuring that the club continues this success. I have met our manager Mauricio Pochettino and have given him my complete support to build on the good work that has already been achieved. “We have also said that we have no plans to sell any of the squad during the January transfer window. Yesterday I met the rest of the staff and gave them the same message of support.” Given the news that injured duo Gaston Ramirez and Dejan Lovren both suffered ankle ligament damage in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland, it may be that Pochettino will be requesting funds to add to his squad during January, rather than having the threat of losing players such as Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw to their rivals. Press Associationcenter_img Nicola Cortese resigned as chief executive last week, with Liebherr becoming non-executive chairman, leading to speculation that manager Mauricio Pochettino and several key players could follow the influential Italian out of St Mary’s. But Liebherr has once again moved to quash such suggestions, insisting the appointment of Rogers – who already worked for Saints as their chief financial officer – will benefit everyone at the club. last_img read more

Steven Shingler’s late show with the boot lifts Scarlets above Munster

first_imgSteven Shingler kicked a dramatic stoppage time penalty from close to halfway as Scarlets won the battle of the Guinness PRO12’s top two 25-22 at Parc y Scarlets. Shingler kicked 15 points, while the Scarlets scored two tries through wing DTH van der Merwe and replacement Tom Williams. Munster’s try was scored by full-back Andrew Conway, with Ian Keatley supplying 17 points with the boot. Scarlets selected four of Wales’ World Cup squad players – Ken Owens, Samson Lee, Jake Ball and Gareth Davies, who was named on the replacements’ bench. Munster, who made eight changes from the win against Glasgow, did not include any of their World Cup players. But despite that Munster fully deserved their 13-6 half-time lead making the most of an error-strewn display by Scarlets in persistent drizzle. Early Munster pressure got them on the scoreboard first with a Keatley penalty on six minutes. Twice Scarlets, who had a nightmare in the line-out, found themselves deep inside the opposition 22 only to fluff both efforts. First they gave away a penalty in the shadow of the Munster posts and then, after a Van der Merwe break, Shingler knocked on just short of the line. On 26 minutes Munster scored a try when full-back Conway pounced on a Scarlets handling error, kicking the ball up field three times before winning the race to the touchdown. Shingler and Keatley swapped penalties before the former kept the Scarlets in touch with his second penalty in the final minute of the first half. Press Association The victory sent unbeaten Scarlets back to the top of the table and in the process ended Munster’s own unbeaten record. In a close encounter Scarlets had trailed 22-19 going into the final seven minutes but fly-half Shingler, who had missed a couple of shots at goal, found the target twice when it mattered. Scarlets made a dramatic start to the second half after Van der Merwe got over in the left corner, but Shingler missed the conversion and the chance to level the scores. But seven minutes later Scarlets erred offside, which allowed Keatley to convert his third penalty. However, replacement Tom Williams scored in the right corner to level the scores at 16-16 before he was sin-binned for a high tackle. While he was off Scarlets managed to keep the scores level. Keatley dropped a goal, a score that was cancelled out by Shingler’s third penalty. But, having missed two long range kicks, Keatley split the posts with a 50-metre effort to put his side in front with seven minutes remaining. That was just enough time for Shingler to kick over two more penalties on 78 and 83 minutes to earn Scarlets a famous win as Munster were forced to make do with a losing bonus point. last_img read more

NTSB Report: Plane that Crashed in Boynton Beach Likely Had Little Fuel

first_imgA small plane that crashed in a Boynton Beach neighborhood last month, killing the pilot, probably left Lantana Airport with almost no fuel, according to a preliminary report.According to the National Transportation Safety Board’s initial report, which was posted Wednesday morning, the single-engine plane’s two fuel tanks, one on each wing, were both ruptured from the impact, but contained “no evidence of residual fuel.” In addition, the crash site had no smell of fuel and no browned grass.Moreover, the valve that switches between tanks “was devoid of fuel,” as was the engine-driven fuel pump.The March 6 crash of the two-seat Grumman American AA-5 killed 67-year-old John Pardillo, of Miami. His aircraft went into a backyard at Dos Lagos, a gated community near Congress Avenue and Miner Road.The National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) interim report states the two-seater was in the air for only 20 minutes.The plane struck a 18-foot-tall palm tree, slicing it at about 5 feet up, before coming to a stop against a fence about 30 feet from the back wall of the home.FAA records show the plane’s registration had expired on Sept. 30 of last year. The report said Pardillo, the pilot, held a valid certificate and had accumulated 350 hours of flying, with about 249 hours of that in single-engine planes.last_img read more

French Open: Wozniacki Knocked out in First Round

first_imgFormer Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki says she “ran out of steam” in a surprise first-round defeat by Russian world number 68 Veronika Kudermetova at the French Open.The Danish 13th seed lost 0-6 6-3 6-3 despite winning the first seven games and said her opponent had “got lucky”.“It’s definitely frustrating,” the 28-year-old former world number one said. Caroline Wozniacki has set up clash with Maria Sharapova in the Third Round of the 2019 Australian Open “It hasn’t been a great year for me so far, so I’m going to work hard and try and turn it around.”Wozniacki, who wore strapping on her left calf, won 62% of the total points in the opening set but crumbled in the second and was broken three times.She went 3-0 behind in the decider before losing a first-round match in Paris for only the third time since 2007.“I think she got very lucky at the start of the second set and took advantage of the opportunities she got,” Wozniacki added.“I ran out of steam in the end and made some unforced errors that I don’t usually do.“She had a few net cords and good shots on some of the important points at the start of the second set.”The Dane, a two-time quarter-finalist at Roland Garros, withdrew from her first-round match against American Danielle Collins at the Italian Openearlier this month because of a calf injury.It was the second successive tournament Wozniacki retired early from after she pulled out of her opening match at the Madrid Open with a back injury.She had won just four matches on clay before her meeting in Paris with Kudermetova, who was playing in only her second Grand Slam main draw.“I hadn’t really been able to play or practise for some weeks, then played my first points a couple of days ago and went from there basically,” Wozniacki said.“But my calf now feels good, so that’s a positive. I have to try and stay positive and obviously it’s not as easy to stay positive when things aren’t going your way.”Wozniacki’s exit comes after Czech sixth seed and Australian Open finalist Petra Kvitova withdrew on Monday with an arm injury, while Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber suffered a shock 6-4 6-2 defeat to world number 81 Anastasia Potapova on Sunday.Kudermetova will now face Kazakh world number 99 Zarina Diyas in the second round.Elsewhere, Dutch fourth seed Kiki Bertens comfortably defeated French world number 66 Pauline Parmentier 6-3 6-4 on Suzanne-Lenglen.And Australian Open quarter-finalist Ashleigh Barty, seeded eighth, beat American world number 72 Jessica Pegula 6-3 6-3.Latvian 12th seed Anastasija Sevastova won6-1 6-4 againstThailand’s Luksika Kumkhum, but could face a tougher test in the second round.She faces Mandy Minella, who caused an upset when she beat world number 13 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-4 6-2.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Alumnus releases film supporting LGBT rights

first_imgSchool of Cinematic Arts 2012 alumnus and director A.J. Goodrich has finished editing his film, The Road Less Traveled By, a documentary following his 3,600-mile walk across the United States in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights. The project took four years from inception to completion, and with the help of the current crowdfunding campaign, the documentary is ready to enter the post-production phase and hit the film festival circuit this year.Goodrich is attempting to raise $35,000 by Sept. 17 through the crowdfunding campaign in order to pay for post-production sound editing, sound mixing, color correction, music rights, archival rights and festival fees.“The biggest challenge was that I was doing the editing alone,” Goodrich said. “During the walk, even though it was really difficult at times, I had the crew with me, but keeping the focus to see it through over four years took a lot of perseverance. What always got me through was remembering that I walked across the whole country, and I felt like I owed it not only to myself but the people who walked with me and the people we met along the way to see the project through to the end.”After editing and condensing more than 400 hours of footage and 31,000 photos over the course of four years, Goodrich is submitting the film to Sundance and other major film festivals around the world in addition to festivals with an emphasis in documentary film and LGBT specific festivals, such as Outfest in Los Angeles. The ultimate goal is to obtain distribution for the film on HBO documentaries, Netflix, PBS or the Travel Channel.“I would like to see it go global,” said producer Mark Metivier. “I would like people in England or Australia or China to watch it because people who have never experienced America and don’t know what is going on here will learn so much. Also historically, 10 years from now, this film will be important.”What began as a political grassroots campaign from Venice Beach to New York City quickly transformed into a journey about self-discovery, the idea of love and friendship and simple human connection. Goodrich and the group of friends who went on the trip with him met a wide variety of individuals with varying perspectives on their eight-month journey, from a queer commune in New Mexico to an Islamic gravedigger in the Mojave Desert. This unique human interaction made the trip much more insightful than Goodrich initially anticipated and proved that individuals across the country are bonded through universal issues and ideas.“As long as the editing process was, it actually ended up being perfect timing with the Supreme Court passing gay marriage in June,” Goodrich said. “I think the movie provides a unique window into one of the most important human rights issues of our time and a snapshot of a point when public opinion was rapidly shifting.”Goodrich hopes that the film’s final message to viewers is of hope and faith in humanity that will inspire young LGBT people to have more confidence in themselves and for heterosexual individuals to have a better understanding of what it means to be a part of the LGBT community.“I am really looking forward to seeing The Road Less Traveled By,” said Audrey Emerson, a documentary film producer and junior majoring in critical studies. “It’s not just a story about an incredible personal journey, but about the larger things that bring us together and reaffirm our humanity. Traveling opens up worlds between people who appear to have nothing in common, and I think documentary film is a really amazing way to make us feel connected to one another.”last_img read more

Cardinal wins sport of has-beens

first_imgThere are certain things you come to expect in life. Lindsay Lohan getting arrested. Dubstep making your head pound. A less-than-pleasant bathroom experience after Taco Bell (but that second gordita crunchwrap supreme was so worth it).Now, that list grows larger. After winning its third consecutive softball game 12-1 over The Badger Herald, The Daily Cardinal has to wonder if the victory even surprised its rival.Despite feeling quite, ahem, “relaxed” after polishing off a keg before the game, the Cardinal rallied for seven runs in the first inning. The Herald fought back honorably, scoring an impressive zero runs in four at-bats in the bottom of the first, a trend that would continue throughout most of the game.The Cardinals excelled on both sides of the field, led by a deep batting lineup and an equally determined defensive stance.Matt “Strong-arm” Kleist lived up to his name, racking up more strikeouts than George Costanza in the dating scene. For the lucky few Herald players who managed to make contact, a swift Cardinal defense sent them, heads bowed down, back to their fearful master and Editor-in-Chief Ryan Rainey.“I get it,” Kleist said, signing a pair of breasts amidst flocks of screaming women. “It’s difficult to hit a slow-pitch softball that literally goes to the exact same location every time.”With a bat in one hand and a bottomless brew in the other, incoming Cardinal Editor-in-Chief Abby “Imma-badbitch” Becker led her team’s potent offense. Although that damn softball field wouldn’t stop spinning, Becker battled the elements and left it all on the field, dignity included.Co-head coach and keg master Matt Masterson said he could not have been more proud of the way his team performed.“I was like Vito Corleone in “The Godfather.” All I had to do was say the word and I knew I’d see results,” Masterson said, clarifying he did not threaten any of his players with death, nor does he regularly sell prostitutes. Except on Saturdays.The only silver lining in the Herald’s performance came when it won the pregame beer chug-off, proving that while the Herald struggles both athletically and in printing newspapers, they can at least drink liquid quickly.Rainey, who improved his usual appearance by sporting a hideous and downright terrifying Edgar Allen Poe mask on the sidelines, said it was an honor to play in the midst of true greatness.“I was so excited and surprised that we even scored one run, I peed myself a little bit,” Rainey admitted.As the sun set over Vilas Park, it was Editor-in-Chief and Cardinal captain Scott Girard who had the final, inspirational word.“For three years I’ve played for this team, and for three years I’ve seen utter domination,” Girard said. “How the fuck haven’t we found better competition yet”?last_img read more

Suspended linebacker Osa Masina is under multiple sexual assault investigations

first_imgPhoto courtesy Sports InformationSuspended sophomore inside linebacker Osa Masina is under two investigations for separate alleged sexual assault incidents, according to police.Cottonwood Heights police in Utah confirmed to FOX 13 on Tuesday that Masina is being investigated for an alleged sexual assault that took place this summer in Salt Lake County, though no charges were filed.According to the report, the Los Angeles Police Department assisted the Cottonwood Heights Police Department in serving a search warrant at a practice facility at USC last week.In a statement, a USC spokesperson said the school was aware of the investigation involving Masina.“USC is cooperating fully with authorities in Utah, the lead agency in the investigation,” the statement read. “Due to privacy laws and to protect the rights of our students, we are not able to discuss this matter further.”Police Sgt. Dan Bartlett told ESPN that the Los Angeles Police Department also has an active investigation into Masina for an incident which he said occurred before the one in Utah. Masina’s attorney, Greg Skordas, confirmed to ESPN that there are two ongoing investigations.On Monday, head coach Clay Helton announced in his weekly Trojans Live appearance that Masina will not travel with the football team to Arlington, Texas, for the season’s first game against Alabama on Saturday,Helton said Masina violated team rules, but did not disclose any details. He did speak on the matter following practice on Tuesday, deferring to the University.“Really as a coach you’re taken out of it,” he said. “This is a university matter and a university policy and I’m confident in the guidance of the university here. They’ll let me know.”Redshirt junior Max Browne, recently named the starting quarterback, said the incident was “tough.”“At the end of the day we’ve had some distractions in the past and I’ll leave that to Coach Helton to address,” he said.Masina, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound sophomore, is listed as a backup inside linebacker on the depth chart behind senior Michael Hutchings.A five-star recruit out of high school, Masina was a backup inside linebacker his freshman year, appearing in 12 games. He made 25 tackles and a fumble recovery that he returned for a touchdown.Masina will join sophomore cornerback Isaiah Langley as the two USC players suspended for the first game. Langley was suspended following an arrest in May at a UCLA fraternity party.The last USC football player to be accused of sexual assault was Bryce Dixon, who was expelled in May of last year but later allowed to re-enroll in school after a judge stayed the expulsion, though Dixon was not allowed to re-join the team.At least one teammate expressed sympathy for Masina.“You know, he’s my brother and I’m going to support him,” said sophomore running back Ronald Jones II.This article was updated at 8:32 p.m.last_img read more

Premier League: Blackburn 0 – 1 Tottenham

first_imgPeter Crouch’s early header secured Tottenham’s first win in five matches as they edged out Blackburn and kept the pressure on the top four.Crouch nodded home Rafael van der Vaart’s cross in the third minute and the visitors defended their lead well.Heurelho Gomes made smart stops from Junior Hoilett and Mame Biram Diouf as Rovers rallied after the break.Jermain Defoe then fired straight at Paul Robinson before Christopher Samba missed a late chance to rescue a point.Tottenham’s fifth clean sheet of the season, and the first achieved without key centre-back Michael Dawson, keeps them three points behind Chelsea in the race for a Champions League spot.The visitors were nowhere near their buccaneering best and were indebted to Gomes for a string of saves in the second half, but manager Harry Redknapp will be delighted with the gritty display from a side missing several of its best players. It was also the perfect response to the north Londoners’ humiliating 4-0 FA Cup defeat by Fulham three days earlier, which had threatened to send Tottenham’s hugely promising season off the rails.Much had been made of Spurs’ burgeoning treatment table before the match, with Redknapp naming two goalkeepers on the bench, but it was one of the beneficiaries of Tottenham’s injury problems who opened the scoring.Only three minutes were on the clock when Crouch, recalled to the starting line-up, rose above Samba and directed Van der Vaart’s pinpoint cross past Robinson to score his second Premier League goal of the season.The gangly hitman’s other strike was also against Blackburn back in November, and added to the double he scored at Ewood Park in Tottenham’s victory there last season.Rovers responded well to falling behind with the pacy Hoilett twice going close, first having a shot blocked by Vedran Corluka and then seeing Gomes tip his effort wide. The visitors withstood the burst of pressure and the half soon descended into a scrappy affair as Spurs showed little inclination to add to their lead and Rovers, while enjoying plenty of possession, failed to trouble Gomes.The closest they came was a fizzing David Dunn drive that flew narrowly wide and Ryan Nelsen’s attempt to convert a Dunn free-kick, also off target.The home side fashioned a better opportunity just after the restart, Diouf beating the offside trap and forcing a good stop from Gomes.But the chance failed to herald an increase in the tempo of the match, which ambled along uneventfully until it was momentarily ignited by two fine pieces of play from Aaron Lennon.The Tottenham winger made a surging 60-yard run from just outside his own box to the edge of Blackburn’s area, where he slid the ball to Defoe whose effort was charged down well by Robinson. Lennon then created a chance for himself, cutting inside from the left before unleashing a fierce right-footed strike that ex-Tottenham keeper Robinson did well to tip over.It sparked Rovers belatedly into life, with Gomes called into action three times in a five-minute Blackburn bombardment.The Brazilian keeper first turned Hoilett’s 20-yard strike wide with a fingertip save, then made an even better stop to deny Diouf from 12 yards, before standing firm to beat away a Morten Gamst Pedersen free-kick.Spurs then appeared to be closing out the match comfortably until injury time, when Samba’s goalbound header from Hoilett’s cross was diverted just over the bar by a vital touch from Jermaine Jenas.And there was still time for Keith Andrews to fire an effort straight at Gomes as Spurs clung on for a scrappy, but significant, victory.

Guus Hiddink wants Ivorian star Didier Drogba as Chelsea assistant

first_imgChelsea’s interim manager Guus Hiddink has revealed that he wants Montreal Impact striker Didier Drogba to join his backroom staff at Stamford Bridge.The Premier League champions confirmed Hiddink as their new manager on Saturday until the end of the season following the departure of Jose Mourinho on Thursday.Mourinho parted company with the club for the second time in his career after they suffered their ninth top-flight defeat of the season at table toppers Leicester City.Hiddink oversaw the Blues’ 3-1 win against Sunderland on Saturday from the stands alongside Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic and Drogba, and the former Netherlands coach now wants the former Chelsea forward back in West London despite the Ivory Coast legend currently playing in MLS with Montreal until December 2016.Asked by Fox Sports about Drogba potentially being his assistant, Hiddink replied: “We would like to get him involved. But he still has a contract with Montreal in the MLS, even though it is the close season for them now.”But we definitely intend to get him involved. We want to get important players involved with the club they care about. Drogba’s heart is with Chelsea.” Drogba spent two spells at Chelsea, winning three Premier League titles, the Champions league, four FA Cups and two League Cups between 2004 and 2012.He then returned to West London in 2014 and won another title and League Cup before departing for MLS.Hiddink was previously appointed at Stamford Bridge in February 2009 following the departure of Luiz Felipe Scolari, when he led them to FA Cup glory.Saturday’s win saw Chelsea climb to 15th in the table — three points above the relegation zone, and 11 off a Champions League qualification spot.– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

NBA Draft stock watch: Ja Morant’s talent (and flaws) on display at NCAA Tournament

first_imgMfiondu Kabengele | Big | Florida StateSpeaking of the Seminoles, there may not have been a bigger beneficiary over the course of opening weekend than Kabengele. The 6-10 big man was instrumental in helping Florida State contain Morant on the interior. He finished with three blocks while using his lengthy wingspan as an effective deterrent. He also didn’t look out of place when switched onto the hard-to-contain point guard.Offensively, Kabengele showed the full range of his skills. Over two games, he shot 2-of-3 from behind the arc. Over a limited sample, he’s now made 38.2 percent of his collegiate 3-point attempts. Kabengele also dominated around the rim against the smaller frontlines of Vermont and Murray State, converting 10 of his 13 attempts at the basket, per Hoop-Math.As a 21-year-old sophomore, Kabengele has an opportunity to play himself into the first round if he continues to shine during the remainder of the tournament and in the pre-draft process.Up next: Kabengele has another opportunity to prove himself in the Sweet 16 against Gonzaga’s frontcourt of Rui Hachimura and Brandon Clarke, two first-round prospects. (Getty Images) (Getty Images) Ja Morant | Point | Murray StateMorant came into the tournament as a consensus top-five prospect for June’s draft, so it’s no surprise he delivered a pair of impressive outings prior to Murray State’s exit. The 19-year-old tallied a triple-double in the Racers’ opening-round upset of Marquette before delivering 28 points, five rebounds and four assists in a loss to Florida State.Against the Golden Eagles, Morant’s court vision was on full display. He logged 16 assists, tying the second-highest single-game mark in NCAA Tournament history. Morant’s passing ability supplements his offensive package well. His handle is elite, and as such, he’s frequently able to break down defenses and get into the lane. The ability to pass out of those situations when defenses collapse is paramount.His performance against Florida State was more of a mixed bag, however. Morant was able to consistently connect from beyond the arc, shooting 5-of-6 from deep, but he struggled on the interior against the Seminoles’ length and athleticism. He finished 3-of-10 on shots at the rim and missed all five of his 2-point jumpers, per Hoop-Math.The latter accentuates concern regarding Morant’s ability to score in the midrange should teams funnel him toward shot blockers while taking away the outside shot with over and drop pick-and-roll coverages. He’s made just 39.1 percent of his 2-point jumpers this season, per Hoop-Math, and connected on a meager 10 of his 32 runner attempts, per Synergy. Those numbers track similar struggles he had last season.Morant still figures to be a top pick come June, and realistically, he should go in the top three depending on how a team feels about Duke’s R.J. Barrett. Still, he’s not without his flaws. Morant had a chance to slide himself confidently into that No. 2 spot with a big NCAA Tournament performance, but he didn’t quite get there.Up next: Morant’s season is finished. He’ll make his NBA Draft decision and then presumably prepare to be selected in the top five on draft night. (Getty Images) Brandon Clarke | Big | GonzagaClarke entered the NCAA Tournament as the No. 13 prospect on our NBA Draft Big Board, slightly higher than the general consensus on him. However, after his impressive performance against Baylor in the round of 32, there’s an argument he should be pushing into the top 10. The 22-year-old finished with 36 points, eight boards, five blocks, three assists and two steals against the Bears.It’s well known in draft circles that Clarke checks the boxes when it comes to piling up winning contributions outside of being a high-usage scorer. He’s averaging 12.1 rebounds, 4.4 blocks, 2.6 assists and 1.7 steals per 40 minutes this season. He has a future in the league as a versatile big man who can play the power forward spot in plenty of situations and the center spot in closing lineups.Outside of the obvious age question — a sticking point when it comes to projecting potential upside — perhaps the biggest issue plaguing Clarke is his lack of center size combined with a lack of shooting productivity. He’s made just six 3-pointers in three seasons and is a career 61.3 percent free throw shooter.The Baylor game highlighted why some feel more optimistic about Clarke’s shooting projections. The Bears typically play a zone defense that offers plenty of space to operate in the midrange. Against them, Clarke attempted six 2-point jumpers and connected on four of them, per Hoop-Math. It’s an expression of an improving touch that could point to potential shooting upside for a prospect who is largely valued because of his supposedly high floor.Clarke may prove to be a fascinating prospect to track throughout the draft process. He’ll challenge teams to locate where their belief in youth as a sign of potential intersects with the value they place on production that contributes to winning basketball games.Of course, this presupposes Clarke lacks significant upside. His growth since transferring to Gonzaga from San Jose State may suggest otherwise.  Up next: Clarke faces off against Florida State’s long, athletic frontline on Thursday night in the Sweet 16. The opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament may not have delivered the wild upsets we’re used to, but it did provide plenty of interesting performances from prospects eligible for the 2019 NBA Draft.It’s worth spotlighting a few of those from players who rank all over our Big Board to see how it affected their mythical draft stock.   (Getty Images) NBA MOCK DRAFT: Full first-round breakdown (Getty Images) Talen Horton-Tucker | Wing | Iowa StateHorton-Tucker has spent most of the year climbing up draft boards thanks to his youth and impressive statistical profile. The 18-year-old is averaging 3.4 assists to 2.5 turnovers while posting 1.9 steals and 1.0 blocks per 40 minutes. However, in Iowa State’s opening-round loss to Ohio State, he was scarcely seen.Horton-Tucker played just 15 minutes against the Buckeyes, finishing with two points, one rebound and a pair of turnovers. The youngster wasn’t in foul trouble and appeared to catch a benching for poor shot selection in the second half. Those choices reflect something consistent from Horton-Tucker’s season-long profile: he loves to shoot, but he’s not very good at it. Dedric Lawson | Big | KansasLawson features here for the polarizing nature of his NCAA Tournament performances, which reflect the general scouting report on him. The 21-year-old followed up a 25-point, 11-rebound outing against Northeastern in the opening round with 25 points and 10 boards in a season-ending loss to Auburn. In doing so, he became the first player since Blake Griffin in 2009 to put up 25 points and 10 rebounds in back-to-back NCAA Tournament games.Whether Lawson could post counting stats, especially when he’s the focus of his team’s offensive attack, has never been the question. The 6-9 big man has always rated well in statistical models thanks to his ability to stuff the stat sheet in areas bigs traditionally don’t, including compiling assists, steals and 3-point makes.  The problem underscored in the Auburn contest: Lawson will be one of the least athletic players in the 2019 NBA Draft should he choose to declare. He struggled to keep pace in transition and failed to contain the Tigers’ ball screen actions either when forced to defend on the perimeter or when rotating back to his man. To have it happen on such a big stage only magnifies his primary concern.NBA teams will have to make a decision on Lawson’s offensive value in order to decide whether his defensive shortcomings justify having him on the floor. There’s certainly a world where Lawson functions as an offensive focal point, knocking down jumpers, attacking closeouts and facilitating for his teammates.If he can’t be that, though, there’s a reasonable chance his deficiencies on the other end will outweigh his offensive upside, leaving his team open to explosions like the one we saw Auburn have against Kansas.Up next: Lawson faces an interesting draft decision. He’s a likely second-round selection, but it’s not clear returning to school would offer him much upward mobility. Despite attempting 6.7 3s per 40 minutes, Horton-Tucker shot just 30.8 percent from deep this season while making only 62.5 percent of his free throws. There aren’t a ton of reasons to buy him as a projectable NBA shooter at this point outside of blind faith in his youth and a belief in the ability to improve him via a development system.While that may be enough to get him selected early on draft night, his outing against Ohio State did little to quell existing worries.Up next: Horton-Tucker will make a decision on his future.last_img read more

UK Prime Minister Bo-Jo Reaches Deal with EU on Brexit

first_imgBut European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said it was a “fair and balanced agreement”.In a letter recommending the deal to European Council President Donald Tusk, he wrote: “It is high time to complete the withdrawal process and move on, as swiftly as possible, to the negotiation on the European Union’s future partnership with the United Kingdom.” The two sides have been working on the legal text of a deal, but it will still need the approval of both the UK and European parliaments.The DUP has cast doubt on its success, saying they still cannot support it.The Northern Irish party earlier released a statement saying they could not back proposals “as things stand”, and – after the PM’s announcement – said their statement “still stands.”Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the deal sounded “even worse” than what was negotiated by the PM’s predecessor, Theresa May, and “should be rejected” by MPs.We are going to get Brexit done #LeaveOct31st— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson) October 17, 2019 Boris Johnson says he has reached an agreement to free Great Britain from the iron bars of the European Union.The Brexit deal has been agreed between UK and EU negotiating teams before a meeting of European leaders in Brussels.Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted: “We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control.”We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control — now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment #GetBrexitDone #TakeBackControl— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson) October 17, 2019last_img read more

Don’t Forget to Pack Proper Payment When You Come to the…

first_imgFacebook19Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Auditor’s OfficeAs the vacation season approaches, don’t forget to pack appropriately before you visit the Thurston County Auditor’s Office to apply for a passport. The most-missed item for passport seekers is a check book.Because of requirements by the federal government, the Auditor’s passport processing agents send your payment directly to U.S. Department of State along with your application, and they do not accept payment by cash or card. Auditor staff cannot process application packets without a check, money order or cashier’s check.“We know that people don’t have a lot of time to waste when they’re planning for long trips, so making sure you have everything you need before you apply for a passport is extremely helpful,” said Mary Hall, Thurston County Auditor. A list of everything you need to bring is available on the Auditor’s Office Passports webpage.The Thurston County Auditor’s office is the only passport services agency in Thurston County open five days a week for full business hours. You can also get your passport photos taken in the Auditor’s office for the convenience of one stop shopping. In addition to passport and photo services, the Auditor’s office provides licensing, document recording, elections, and county financial services.The demand for passports is expected to continue to rise as a result of implementation of REAL ID identification requirements. Standard driver’s licenses (non-enhanced) and ID cards will no longer be accepted at airports beginning October 2020. Passengers will need enhanced drivers licenses or passports to board commercial airlines.The Auditor’s passport office is located at 2000 Lakeridge Dr SW, Olympia, WA 98502 in Building 1, Room 106.

Sevilla’s defense is from the Champions League

first_imgAs if that were not enough, defenses like Diego Carlos or Reguilón have scored points with their goals, while Koundé made it possible to pass in the Copa del Rey against Bergantiños. If for his defense it were, Sevilla would practically have secured the Champions League. The statistics of the first round have been in charge of confirming that Monchi’s work in signing pieces for the rearguard, together with Lopetegui’s hand to assemble the defensive system of Seville, has been outstanding. And it is that the defense of Seville is worthy of qualifying for the Champions League as evidenced by the fact that it is the fourth team that has most often left its goal to zero in the 19 rounds that have been played in LaLiga.There have been eight occasions when Vaclik has gone home without having to collect the ball from his goal. The leader of this statistic is Real Madrid with 10 goals to zero, followed by Atlético de Madrid and Athletic with nine. Sevilla, meanwhile, tied eight goals to zero with Granada, although it is above because Lopetegui have conceded a total of 18 goals, while the Nasrids have received 25. In the overall calculation of conceded goals , Sevilla is also in fourth position only behind the aforementioned Real Madrid, Atlético and Athletic.last_img read more

Mills Jones Campaign Puts Market Women ‘In Zico’

first_imgMOVEE Chairman, Dee Maxwell Kemayah, with standard bearer, Dr. J. Mills Jones, during a recent campaign rally in August 2017.The fact that the standard bearer of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE), Dr. Joseph Mills Jones, sailed smoothly through the National Elections Commission confirmation process in spite of the controversial Code of Conduct, which many thought would have hooked him of all aspirants, has reinvigorated his political prowess and put his supporters, mainly the marketers, ‘in zico’ (great zeal or high morale) to canvass for his presidential bid.Women in the Gobachop, Coalfield, Red Light and Ground Pea markets in Paynesville Community, outside Monrovia, thanked Dr. Jones for providing them the enabling environment to do business and promised to ensure that he is elected president.The women, who were taken by a surprise visit from Dr. Jones and his entourage on Monday, said Jones has “elevated” them, not only through the provision of a loan scheme when he served as Central Bank Governor, but also for playing a significant role in taking them from the “ground to the table,” which they said has greatly impacted their lives.It was Dr. Jones and his running mate, Dr. Samuel Reeves’s first visit to the area since  campaigning began on July 31. The Market Superintendent, Madam Sangai Dolley, showered praises on Jones, and said God will definitely answer his prayer to become President of Liberia. Madam Dolley said the marketers can trust Dr. Jones with the leadership of the country, not just for the good he has done for market women across the country before and after he emerged on the political scene, but “because he is a man of his word.”“We are for you today and tomorrow, and will make sure that we vote for you, because you know what the poor people are going through,” she declared to a round of applause.In response, Dr. Jones said the marketers should by now be able to engage in wholesale trade, and encouraged them not to limit themselves to just being retailers. He promised them that under a J. Mills Jones presidency, the government will work hard to improve their lives by providing them more business opportunities and strengthening their trades by constructing facilities to include warehouses to preserve some of their perishable goods.“We understand you were not expecting us here today, but we are here and so we wanted to just come in and see you. We come as people who believe in change that is why we are not doing things the same old politicians’ way. We are different people with a different ideology to develop this country for all to enjoy and benefit from the resources,” Jones told the marketers. “I am not a politician and neither is my running mate, but it is time for us to change Liberia. It is not the same old politicians that will change this country,” he said.Jones said under his stewardship, marketers in the 15 counties will see more stimulus packages to boost their earnings, much more than when he was at the Central Bank of Liberia as the governor. “We want to tell you that when you put us in the Mansion, nobody will be vex with us to stop (what we are doing) at that time; in fact, we know it will increase,” Jones added, to the delight of the marketers who chanted the name “Poverty Doctor”.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

I wish our five community groups all the best in the upcoming awards in Belfast and that they are winners already!”Séamus Neely, CE of Donegal County Council states that “All those nominated epitomise the sense of community spirit that can be seen all across Donegal and the whole of Ireland, with people committed to creating positive civic change in their respective communities.

first_imgEamon McGee has campaigned for a ‘yes’ vote in the upcoming referendum.A NUMBER of people walked out of a Mass in protest at comments made by a priest during a sermon on gay marriage.Father John Britto spoke out against gay marriage during a sermon in Annagry on Saturday night.And he told the congregation that Gaoth Dobhair footballer Eamon McGee was wrong to back the Yes campaign in May’s referendum on same sex marriages. A number of people attending the Mass objected to the comments and left.“A few people walked out; Father Britto was giving a very robust sermon on gay marriage and said McGee was wrong (to support the Yes campaign),” said a mother who was at the Mass.Members of one family were at the Mass for an anniversary of a dead relative. They are said to have found the sermon upsetting.The incident came just days after the Donegal defender backed the Yes campaign in the referendum. A Catholic organisation criticised McGee on social media. “The reaction has been more than positive. A Catholic organisation was ribbing me on Twitter and asking why the GAA was taking a stand on this,” said Éamon.“It’s a societal issue rather than a political issue but the majority of it has been supportive and I think it’s a good opportunity too for people to talk about it. It just shows you there’s that bit of open-mindedness there.“There’s no point lying about it: there’s certain aspects of GAA folk that are traditionalists, have Catholic viewpoints and are old school. They will view this with a bit of suspicion, this lifestyle. Maybe that’s 20-30% of them, 30% maximum. The majority of the GAA are coming on now to it.”McGee told a press conference last month that if he was lucky enough to have children he didn’t want one of them asking him in the future why he didn’t vote Yes. PEOPLE WALK OUT OF MASS OVER PRIEST’S ‘GAY’ COMMENTS ABOUT DONEGAL GAA STAR was last modified: March 10th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Eamon McGeefather John Brittolast_img read more

Heritage-led regeneration of Church Lane in Letterkenny continues

first_imgAs the Historic Towns Initiative on Church Lane, Letterkenny nears completion, a delegation from The Heritage Council and the Department of Culture, Heritage & the Gaeltacht visited project partners to view progress.Under the Historic Towns Initiative, conservation works are taking place to seven historic properties.The works include roof and chimney repairs, installation of cast-iron rainwater goods, reinstatement of timber sash windows and doors, application of lime render or lime pointing, and the repair of a historic shopfront using traditional materials and informed by best conservation practice. The conservation works are being funded by The Heritage Council, Donegal County Council and the private landowners.“The partnership between the Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter, Donegal County Council, Dedalus Architecture and private landowners established under the Historic Towns Initiative has worked very well” explained Joseph Gallagher, County Donegal Heritage Officer.“This collaborative way of working has provided us with mechanisms that facilitate heritage-led regeneration in our towns and villages and encourage greater community cohesion.“The project has also encouraged greater cross-directorate cooperation within Donegal County Council as the Conservation Office within the Community Development and Planning Directorate and the Heritage Office within the Housing, Corporate and Culture Directorate were joint project leaders. The successful approach adopted for Church Lane can be applied elsewhere.” “The Historic Towns Initiative builds on several community-led initiatives instigated by the Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter as well as the designation of the Ecclesiastical Architectural Conservation Area under the Letterkenny Local Area Plan” said Collette Beattie, Conservation Officer, Donegal County Council.“Initiatives such as the ‘Save the Church Lane’ campaign started in January 2014, the Heritage Streets Alive project in 2015, the Church Lane Conservation Plan in 2016 and the Collaborative Town Centre Health Check in 2018 established strong community support and strong evidence-based support for the heritage-led regeneration of Church Lane.“The Historic Towns Initiative has benefitted immensely from the voluntary and dynamic approach of the Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter Committee, the grade one conservation expertise of Dedalus Architecture and the shared vision of the property owners.”During their visit to Church Lane, officials from The Heritage Council and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht enjoyed lunch with project partners in the Wholegreen Restaurant on Church Lane before going on a guided tour of the Historic Towns Initiative conservation works.Donnan Harvey and Shane Toolin of the Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter Committee highlighted the work of their group over the past five years and their aspirations for Church Lane. Conservation architect Duncan McLaren, Dedalus Architecture outlined the conservation works to the seven historic buildings and property owners spoke about their future plans to bring their properties back into use.The funding of €200,000 awarded by The Heritage Council and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht for the Historic Towns Initiative on Church Lane, Letterkenny was the largest allocation of the six successful historic towns across Ireland under this year’s scheme.This funding is being supplemented with €40,000 from Donegal County Council and private funding from Church Lane property owners. It is anticipated that the conservation works as part of the Historic Towns Initiative on Church Lane will be completed later this month and The Heritage Council indicated that the work on Church Lane will be profiled at a national seminar on the Historic Towns Initiative in Kilkenny in January 2020.Heritage-led regeneration of Church Lane in Letterkenny continues was last modified: November 11th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Church LaneHeritage Councilletterkennyregenerationlast_img read more

Top 10 Semantic Web Products of 2009

first_imgrichard macmanus 2009 has seen a lot of Semantic Web and structured data activity. Much of it has been driven by Linked Data, a W3C project which gained momentum this year. According to Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the Web, Linked Data is a sea change akin to the invention of the WWW itself. We’ve gone from a Web of documents to a Web of data.The 10 products we’ve picked out for this end-of-year review are ones that have done interesting things with data. Connecting to other data, building new applications with data, sharing data, and more. These 10 products may not be the type of Semantic Web apps that the W3C envisaged in the 90s, but that no longer seems to matter.

Also the end-user experience is sophisticated – readers on and other sites that use Apture can see rich, relevant, contextual content from the likes of Wikipedia, YouTube and Flickr without leaving the host site. Those are our picks for the top Semantic Web (or structured data) products of 2009.

As we explained in April, Zemanta offers bloggers relevant links, photos and other assets to include in their blog posts. Zemanta’s API is also being used by startups. Over 2009, the company has continued to iterate and impress. For example in October Zemanta released a new engine and API.Zemanta is open source and standards-based. It works well with the rest of the tech community and has some interesting tools for supporting non-profit organizations.Note: We compared Zemanta to Apture in an August analysis post.Open Calais 4.0 In January Thomson Reuters released their most significant update yet to the Calais web service and open API: Calais 4.0. Calais is a toolkit of products that enables publishers to incorporate semantic functionality within their properties – enabling them to categorize content as people, places, companies, facts, events, and more.Calais 4.0 went beyond metatagging and enabled publishers to integrate their content with Linked Data assets from Wikipedia, GeoNames, the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), and others. Calais 4.0 also let publishers share semantic metadata about their content with “content consumers” such as search engines, news aggregators, related stories recommendation services and moreBBC’s Semantic Music Project The BBC has long been a major experimental force in the Web ecosystem, backed with large dollops of British taxpayer funding and an equally large measure of British geek talent. The BBC Music Beta project caught our eye earlier this year. It’s an ongoing effort by the BBC to build semantically linked and annotated web pages about artists who are played on BBC radio stations. Within these pages, collections of data are enhanced and interconnected with semantic metadata, letting music fans explore connections between artists that they may have not known existed.The backend of this BBC project comes from the Linked Data world – specifically MusicBrainz, an open content music “metadatabase” that lists information for over 400,000 artists. Tags:#2009 in Review#NYT#Semantic Web#web#Year in Review Glue Once just a browser add-on that allowed users to surf smarter across several verticals, AdaptiveBlue’s Glue is now a site-centric product that acts as both a hub and a spoke of the social web.As we wrote in October, Glue’s technology is based on a user’s browsing across common sites such as Amazon, Wikipedia and YouTube. Those visits and any interactions (comments, “likes,” etc.) feed back to Glue to automatically create a taste profile and a web of affinity with other users. The idea is to recommend items or content across categories including music, books and movies.FreebaseFreebase is an open, semantically marked up database of information. It looks similar to Wikipedia, but Freebase is all about structured data and what you can do with it. Freebase has been one of the more hyped companies in the Semantic Web, leading to some skepticism that the product is too much like Wikipedia and offers nothing much new. Our verdict at the end of 2008 was that Freebase was still lots of work to do, in terms of usability and useful data.However over 2009 Freebase has continued to build out its ambitious vision. It recently announced the publication of its 10 millionth topic, up from 4 million a year ago. While it’s obviously still working on its user experience for the consumer audience, Freebase continues to get the respect of Semantic Web and Linked Data aficionados.DBpediaDBpedia is not a commercial product, but it’s one of the largest sources of Linked Data on the Web – so we think it deserves to be recognized in our top 10. Essentially, DBpedia extracts structured information from Wikipedia and makes that data available on the Web.At the present time, DBpedia has more than 2.9 million “things” – including at least 282,000 persons, 339,000 places, 88,000 music albums, 44,000 films, 15,000 video games, 119,000 organizations, 130,000 species and 4400 diseases. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market In May, Google announced two significant additions to its search product: Search Options and Rich Snippets. The two features notably extended Google’s core search product and the ‘rich snippets’ part in particular was based around structured content.Rich snippets extract and show useful information from web pages. Google is using structured data open standards such as microformats and RDFa to power the rich snippets feature. It is inviting publishers to mark up their HTML (webmasters can find more details here).FeedlyFeedly describes itself as “magazine-like startpage.” When it launched in August 2008, we labeled it just “an alternative interface for Google Reader.” However with the launch of Feedly Mini, a mini bar that hovers at the bottom of the screen as you surf through blogs on the web, the service has become a much more inclusive blog reading companion.Feedly Mini integrates Twitter, FriendFeed, Google Search, Mozilla’s Ubiquity, and more. A number of our writers love this tool – Sarah Perez went so far as to call it “a must-have tool” for anyone who uses services like Twitter and FriendFeed. The trend towards opening up government data has been a significant one during 2009. The inventor of the Web, Tim Berners-Lee, is currently helping the British government to do this – using Linked Data. It’s a subject he’s very passionate about, as we discovered when we interviewed him in June.The Obama administration has had a mixed record so far in terms of opening up government data, however the launch of in May was a positive step in 2009. It was announced by the Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the United States, Vivek Kundra, and it aims to “increase public access to high value, machine readable datasets generated by the Executive Branch of the Federal Government.” Although we found to be too limited an offering, it’s a start.

Italy Plans to Hold YouTube Accountable for its Users’ Uploads (Updated)

first_img“When this Directive was debated at length in Brussels, it was clearly decided that user-generated video content should not be regulated in the same way as traditional TV content. If it was then people would find it far more difficult to use video sites to share their videos. So we hope that Italy does not go down a different path and start to regulate videos that people upload to the internet in the same way as they regulate TV.”A “Mere Conduit”As Nate Anderson notes, the EU passed an electronic commerce directive in 2000 that clearly states that whenever a service only provides a transmission service, “the service provider is not liable for the information transmitted.” The EU considers these services “mere conduits,” as long as the “do not initiate the transmission, do not select the receiver of the transmission and do not select or modify the information contained in the transmission.” The EU directive, however, leaves it up to the EU’s member states to require service providers to prevent infringement. How Will Google React?Should Italy’s deputy minister of communications Paolo Romani decide to forge ahead with these new regulations, Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and any other company that offers services similar to YouTube would face substantial legal risks if they continued to operate in Italy. Google, of course, is already embroiled in a legal conflict with Italy. We asked Google for a statement about the current situation in Italy and will update this post once we hear more. Tags:#news#web Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Update: We just heard back from Google. Here is the company’s official statement, courtesy of Marco Pancini, Google’s senior policy counsel for Italy: The Italian government is moving ahead with its plans to hold YouTube accountable for its users’ copyright infringements. According to new regulations that have recently been proposed by the Italian government, YouTube would have to get a TV license to operate in Italy. Should Italy move ahead with this regulation, YouTube would have to follow the same rules and regulations as traditional broadcast channels. These new rules would eliminate the “safe harbor” rules that currently shield services like YouTube.According to Nicola D’Angelo, a commissioner in Italy’s Communications Authority, these new rules would make Italy “the only Western country in which it is necessary to have prior government permission to operate this kind of service. This aspect reveals a democratic risk, regardless of who happens to be in power.”center_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting frederic lardinois 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

BBC iPlayer Coming to Android & iPad…and Soon, the World

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The BBC has clarified its plans for the release of its Android and iPad-compatible versions of its popular iPlayer application – the British TV and radio service that delivers streaming content to the desktop and mobile devices – in light of a flurry of recent speculation. According to a post on the’s Internet blog, the media company plans to have its new Android and iPad applications in their respective app stores by the end of this week.There were a few caveats to the use of these new apps, however. And oddly enough, there was no mention of an iPhone application.Major Improvements for iPad Users The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts sarah perez Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#mobile#news#Product Reviews#Video Services#web According to the blog post, which set out to “make official” the BBC’s plans in this area, the new native app for iPad is a major improvement over the original iPad experience –  essentially just a website designed for the iPad. The new app takes better advantage of the touchscreen user interface, says the BBC, which is a popular feature on the “iPad-ified” website.Both the iPad app and Android app will offer live TV streams and radio, the latter which was never before available to mobile devices.Mobile users can also access the full BBC catalog of “catch-up” programs (TV you may have missed), seven days’ worth of TV and radio on demand and the “series stacking” feature that’s also available on the Web, this last item being a feature that allows viewers to watch older programs from selected series up until the series has ended.On Android: Froyo-Only, Flash RequiredOn Android, the iPlayer app will not be available for all devices, only on those running the Android 2.2 (“Froyo”) version of the mobile operating system and Adobe Flash 10.1. This is because the player’s Flash streams require “a powerful mobile phone processor and a Wi-Fi connection,” says the BBC.But as some may remember, an unofficial iPlayer app called myPlayer had arrived in the Android Market (before being booted out), but it did not require Flash. The speculation is that BBC had to implement the streaming service in Flash because of content provider pressure, not technical requirements. Content providers are concerned about pirating – that same fear is why the Netflix application for Android has not yet launched either. As stated by Netflix on its blog back in November:“The hurdle has been the lack of a generic and complete platform security and content protection mechanism available for Android. The same security issues that have led to piracy concerns on the Android platform have made it difficult for us to secure a common Digital Rights Management (DRM) system on these devices.”But rumor has it, Netflix isn’t going with a Flash requirement, but has been working with chipset maker Qualcomm on implementing specific technology like SecureMSM to get the Netflix app approved.Where’s the iPhone App? And What About the Global Audience?What’s odd about this iPlayer news is that the mobile applications will arrive for Android and iPad, but not the iPhone. For iPhone users, there is still the Apple-friendly HTML5 website. Of course, a native app would have its advantages. So, what’s the status of the iPhone application, everyone wants to know? Here, the BBC clarifies nothing.For those outside the U.K. pining for access to British TV, there is some good news. Although not addressed via this blog post,’s managing director Luke Bradley-Jones told the audience at the Digital TV Summit that the company will launch  a “global” iPlayer this year whose content would be available via subscription.Hopefully, the BBC will consider a native iPhone application for that time, too.last_img read more

When Smartphones Are The Wrong Tool For The Wrong Job

first_imgdan rowinski What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Normally I am all for using smartphones to make you better at your job or businesses more efficient. But sometimes things just cross the line.The Chicago Sun-Times, a newspaper with a long and rich history, just fired its entire staff of photo journalists. It their place? The Sun-Times is going to teach every reporter the basics of iPhone photography. “In the coming days and weeks, we’ll be working with all editorial employees to train and outfit you as much as possible to produce the content we need,” said Sun-Times managing editor Craig Newman in a memo to the staff, according to media critic Robert Feder in a Facebook post.This comes under the category of, “just because you can do something and it will be cheaper and easier, doesn’t mean you bloody well should.”I take a lot of photos for articles with my array of smartphones. That doesn’t mean all of them are any damn good. Sometimes it can be damn hard to take a professional photograph of something with a smartphone for publication. You become a lot more aware of lighting conditions, distance, hand movement and stabilization. These are things that a good photo journalist with a decent camera just knows how to take care of to produce much better quality work than me and my point-and-shoot smartphone hack jobs.In comparison to large newspapers, ReadWrite’s staff is small and we can only do so many things. Yet, we have a person on a photo desk (that serves other SAY Media-owned properties, as well) and we have been trying to be more proactive with original pictures and visual elements in our story. The Web is more and more a visual place, and quality photos are what make publications stand out from the dreck of social media and amateur blogs. Add in the fact that the Chicago Sun-Times actually prints a paper newspaper, and the matter becomes complicated. You ever seen a pixelated, blurry iPhone picture blown up and printed on newspaper parchment? No? There is a reason for that.If newspapers are going to turn reporters into “backpack journalists” (where everything they need from camera, to notebooks to computer,smartphone and tablets is in  backpack), then they need to equip reporters better for photos than just a smartphone. The industry has made tremendous strides with smartphone camera technology (with Samsung, Nokia and HTC’s recent flagship smartphones all boasting terrific digital point-and-shoot apps).For the most part though, they just aren’t going to be good enough for the professional-grade photography a major American newspaper is supposed to have. It would be better if the if the Sun-Times reporters issued high-quality digital cameras like the Samsung Galaxy Camera. They would be much better equipped to enter the fray than just with their smartphone. We can extend the bad decision of the Sun-Times to a variety of industries. Just because mobile might be cheaper, that doesn’t necessarily mean it is going to be better. The right tool for the right job makes everybody’s lives easier and more efficient. Sometimes, perhaps most of the time, that tool is not going to be a smartphone. Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

2011 New South Wales State Cup

first_imgApproximately 3000 players will be competing across 17 divisions at the event, ranging from Under 20’s to the Men’s 50’s division. Teams from 50 affiliates across New South Wales will compete in the three day event. The Eastern Suburbs Roosters will be hoping to claim back-to-back Champion Affiliate status at this year’s event, after winning three titles in 2010. After winning their first Vawdon Cup title in 10 years in early November, Easts Roosters will be hopeful of gaining the Men’s Open Vawdon Cup/State Cup double in Port Macquarie. With Australian World Cup champions Terry Deegan (Men’s) and Jamie Chan (Mixed), as well as several New Zealand World Cup representatives in Ed Burrell, Dean Williams and Cain Rangi, the side is full of star players, and will be hard to beat.Easts’ edged out the Penrith Panthers in the Vawdon Cup final by two touchdowns and the Panthers will be keen to go one better at the State Cup. With a trio of Australian World Cup representatives in Nick Good, Ben Moylan and Scott Buckley, the Panthers will be another team to watch out for. The Hornsby Lions, will be vying for their third consecutive State Cup title, and with New South Wales Touch Association’s Coach of the Year, Terry Cooper, at the helm, the Lions will once again be an exciting team to watch. Last year’s State Cup runners up, Wests Magpies, will again be in the mix this year, and will field a strong team. Australian representatives Anthony Ziade (Men’s), Daniel Rushworth, Roy Prasad (Mixed) and Michael Jacono (Men’s 30’s) will again lead the side, and will be hoping to do one better in 2011 following their one touchdown loss to Hornsby in last year’s State Cup final. The experience of the Canterbury Bulldogs means that they should be around on finals day, with recent Vawdon Cup Boland Medal winner for Player of the Season, Steve Roberts, in the line-up as well as his fellow Australian Men’s Open teammates Stuart Brierty, Matt Prowse and Mat Bird. After a strong Vawdon Cup campaign, the Parramatta Eels will also be a team to watch out for, with Australian Mixed Open World Cup champions, Troy Malcolm and Dylan Thompson, in the line-up. The Wollongong Devils will be hoping that they can achieve the Women’s Open Vawdon Cup/State Cup double in 2011, after coming very close in 2010. After winning the 2010 Vawdon Cup, the Devils were beaten in a drop-off by the Canterbury Bulldogs in last year’s final, before an undefeated Vawdon Cup season saw the Devils beat the Bulldogs in the Vawdon Cup final in early November. Australian Women’s Open representative and recent Vawdon Cup Karen Smith Medal winner for Player of the Season, Nicole Beck, will not play at the State Cup due to an ankle operation, and will be missed by the Devils. The State Cup will be a good challenge for the side, which will look to the experience of co-captains Jess McCall and Cara Zaremski, while there are many talented youngsters in the Devils’ line up including Australian Youth representatives Bianca Mounsey and Sam Hammond. Canterbury will be aiming for their sixth straight State Cup title in 2011, and will be hard to beat with Australian Women’s Open captain Louise Winchester leading the team, while her sister Claire, and Kelly Woods will also be players to watch. Port Macquarie will be fielding a team in the Women’s Open division in 2011, with plenty of impressive young players to debut in this division. Australian 18’s Girls representative, Simone Smith, will join her Elite Eight New South Wales Country Mavericks teammates Kelly Pepper, Ash Alcorn and Australian Mixed Open World Cup champion, Kylie Hilder, in the side, while talented sisters Kate and Laura Coleman will also be looking to impress in front of a home crowd. The Manly Sea Eagles and Penrith Panthers are two teams full of young talent, and will be looking to continue on from their impressive Vawdon Cup seasons at the State Cup.Round games will be played on Friday and Saturday, before finals are contested on Sunday.New South Wales Touch Association (NSWTA) General Manager, Dean Russell, used Thursday’s New South Wales State Cup media launch to announce that Port Macquarie will host the next five State Cup events following the 2011 tournament.With the State Cup currently in its 23rd consecutive year with Port Macquarie as host, the city will continue to host the event from 2012 to 2016 commencing with next year’s event on December 7-9.To keep up-to-date with all of the latest news and information from the 2011 New South Wales State Cup, please visit the following websites: NSWTA’s social media pages will also be updated regularly throughout the event, and you can find out everything you need to know by ‘liking’ or ‘following’ these read more

Deer gets into Edmonton thrift shop breaks china escapes through window

One West Edmonton business is assessing the damage after a wildlife encounter.John Francis, the manager of Mission Thrift Store says if it weren’t for security video of what happened just after opening on June 26, he might not have believed his employee’s claim.“I was getting to the stations and getting the day started,” he says. “The deer trotted through pretty quickly, right onto the sales floor.”It took advantage of an open back door, slipping past volunteers unnoticed, skipping the racks of clothing and shelves of books, when its eyes fell on the china.“It jumped straight ahead right through the shelving, busted a bunch of dishes, took the plate glass out immediately, kind of landed on the sidewalk, got up and trotted across the road,” Francis says.The non-profit now has to replace the window, but they say they are impressed the deer seemed unharmed, with no blood or fur left behind as it went trotting off down the busy street.“This neighborhood gets more interesting every day I’m here,” Francis adds.And he says the deer is welcome to come back, the staff just it hope it leaves through the front door.last_img read more

SecretaryGeneral convenes information session on HIV in UN workplace

30 November 2007On the eve of World AIDS Day, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today convened an orientation session on HIV in the United Nations workplace as part of his efforts to ensure that the world body becomes a model in responding to the virus. Facilitated by one of the UN’s coordinators on HIV in the workplace, the session was intended for all Under-Secretaries-General and Assistant Secretaries-General based at Headquarters, as well as the executive heads of New York-based UN agencies. “The Secretary-General hopes the session will provide him and his senior leaders with important lessons and messages, while helping them set an example as managers and colleagues,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson, Michele Montas, told reporters. While sessions on HIV in the workplace have been offered to the Organization’s staff on a voluntary basis in recent years, they are now becoming mandatory for all employees working at Headquarters and in the field. These sessions convey information on transmission, prevention, stigma and discrimination, care and treatment, as well as the UN’s policies, initiatives and services. Also today, Mr. Ban will address a World AIDS Day observance at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Manhattan. Ms. Montas said the Secretary-General would emphasize the need for Government and individual leadership to assure universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support, noting that “We all need to take responsibility for the response.” read more

Gunmen launch yet another attack on aid workers in Darfur UN reports

The non-governmental organization (NGO) convoy of three vehicles with six local staff was stopped this morning in South Darfur on its way from Nyala, the provincial capital, to Kalma internally displaced persons (IDP) camp, the joint UN-African Union mission in Darfur (UNAMID) said in a statement. The gunmen forced it to drive down to a nearby gully.“Although the workers complied without resistance to demands for money, the attackers assaulted them up before leaving the scene,” it added “Three out of the six workers were reportedly severely beaten and taken to the local hospital, where their condition is listed as stable and non life-threatening.” Initial reports suggest that the assailants were informed of the workers’ movements and that they were transporting cash intended for the payment of salaries for the Kalma camp staff.“If proven right, these suspicions would point to an act of banditry,” UNAMID added.Just yesterday, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes told the Security Council that 261 vehicles had been hijacked and 172 compounds broken into so far this year. Rebel movements, or those linked to them, appear primarily responsible for the majority of “these terrifying incidents” in rural areas, but many also occur in main towns in Government control, he said.“I call on both the Government security forces and rebel leaders to put a stop to this banditry once and for all,” he added. “It seriously damages the quality of assistance – just as one example, World Food Programme (WFP) rations are still only at 70 per cent because of attacks on their convoys – and it damages the credibility of their promises to ensure our safety.”UNAMID, slated to reach 26,000 personnel but now only 10,500-strong, is being deployed throughout Darfur in an effort to bring peace to a region where more than five years of fighting between Government forces, allied Janjaweed militia and rebel groups have killed an estimated 300,000 people and driven another 2.7 million from their homes. 4 December 2008Two gunmen equipped with AK-47 assault rifles and a hand grenade stopped a humanitarian convoy in Sudan’s war-ravaged Darfur region today, beat up the aid workers and stole money in the latest of a long series of such assaults that are impeding relief operations, the United Nations reported. read more

December gold gave back $2 to US$1,117.00 an ounce, while December copper was unchanged at US$2.45 a pound.On Thursday afternoon, the U.S. central bank said it would keep its benchmark overnight interest rate at between zero and 0.25 per cent.The rate, a widely watched number that affects nearly every part of the American economy through its effect on bank lending rates, has gone unchanged since 2008 when the world was in the throes of the global financial crisis and credit markets were seizing up.The Fed’s rate decision was approved on a 9-1 vote. The sole dissenter was Jeffrey Lacker, president of the Fed’s Atlanta regional bank, who backed a 25-basis-point increase.However, the Fed, in language it has used before, said rates would only rise when it sees further improvement in the labour market and is “reasonably confident” that inflation will move back to the Fed’s optimal inflation target of two per cent.The U.S. central bank said inflation was up just 1.2 per cent in its latest reading. It foresees inflation accelerating to a 1.7 per cent increase next year, but still below the target rate.Meanwhile, the majority of Fed policy-makers said they still expected a rate hike would occur before the end of the year, predicting a single, quarter-point increase.Patrick O’Toole, vice-president at CIBC Asset Management, said the documents released by the Fed along with its decision show the central bank believes that America is growing at a fairly healthy rate in 2016.“If you’re running an economy at a growth rate that’s higher than what some would say is trend, it’s curious that they think they can justify holding rates at an emergency setting of zero,” he said.Follow @Henderburn on Twitter. read more

Commentary Would US sports fans support promotion relegation system

When a professional sports team in America has a bad season, as the old saying goes, there’s always next season – but not in European soccer. End-of-season discussions around some European professional soccer leagues are about survival. Mainly, which teams are going to survive to play another year in a given country’s top league. The English Premier League, the world’s most prominent soccer league, is among those leagues where suspense almost always carries into the final minutes of the season. The EPL has a stipulation in place that relegates or downgrades its bottom three teams in any one season to the Football Association’s Championship division. In return, the top three teams of the Championship are promoted to the Premier League. Conceptually, it would be like the Columbus Clippers having the best record in Triple-A baseball and then moving up to play Major League Baseball the following season. And the same goes for the Championship, as well as the two divisions below it – the FA’s League One and League Two. The top and bottom three teams from each of England’s four divisions shuffle back and forth season after season. With its season concluding on Sunday, this year’s EPL relegated teams are Wolverhampton F.C., Blackburn F.C. and Bolton F.C. No club is safe from the relegation rule as Blackburn (1995 EPL Champions) becomes the first former Premier League champion to be relegated. How harsh is that? 17 years removed from a championship and you’re deemed not good enough to compete in the league. Harsh or not, the rule is ingenious on some levels. It creates a level playing field and makes every game in a season matter. There certainly isn’t any talk of “tanking” game in the Premier League for any reason. So, what if American sports leagues adopted its European counterparts relegation and promotion rules? Would it be a good thing? Is it even possible? Would the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats have lost 23 games in a row to end the season? Whether it would be good for leagues like the NFL, MLB, NBA and the NHL to adopt the relegation-promotion rule is purely subjective. It would be good in the sense teams likely wouldn’t tank, and every regular-season game matters, but at what cost? Would the playoffs have to be eliminated? The EPL crowns its champion based solely on regular season performance. If there were no Super Bowl or World Series, would that be a good thing? The question of whether it’s even possible to have a relegation-promotion rule in American professional sports is interesting. As it stands now, only two of the top four leagues have the type of minor-league system in place to piggyback off the system used English soccer. The NHL has the American Hockey League (AHL) below it as an incremental level and MLB has Triple-A baseball with the International League and Pacific Coast League. Even then, those leagues would need adjustment. The NHL or MLB teams couldn’t have ties to the AHL or Triple-A teams as they do now using the lower level teams as a means of producing players within a farm system. The Premier League’s relegation and promotion rule is something American sports fans envy, and although some fans wish it would be adopted tomorrow by America’s sports leagues, it’s not a simple as it may seem. read more

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald s

first_imgArizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald seemed incredulous that the question was even asked.“How can you be over-confident after scoring three points in a game,” he said when asked if the Bills’ struggling defense could present a different kind of challenge for the Cardinals offense. “How can you? That’s not the attitude we have right now. “We have the we have to prove ourselves attitude and we do. After putting a bad performance like that on national TV we have a lot that we need to improve on, and we need to go out there and show that we’re capable of executing at that level.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “We have to do a better job this week of paying attention to the details and preventing those long passes,” he said.The Bills are averaging 23.6 points per game, which places them 15th in the NFL but nearly five whole points ahead of the Cardinals. And while Fitzpatrick gets a lot of the attention, their two-headed monster at running back of Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller has given Buffalo the fifth-best rushing offense in the league. In other words, the Bills can move the ball in a variety of different ways.“They give you a number of different looks,” Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “It’s kind of a different offense from what you see, the conventional type.” The “bad performance” Fitzgerald was speaking of was Arizona’s 17-3 loss to the Rams last Thursday, a game where the offense tallied just 282 total yards. It led to Arizona’s first defeat of the season, and while it counts as just one loss, it has led many to wonder if Arizona’s offense will ultimately be its undoing.Which is why, really, the idea that the Cardinals could be over-confident against anyone — even the NFL’s 31st (out of 32) ranked defense — seems somewhat preposterous. But Arizona’s defense is a different story. They should be feeling pretty good about this game, right? After all, the Bills were just held to three points by the San Francisco 49ers, and come into their game against the Cardinals having turned the ball over 13 times in five games, which is the third-worst total in the NFL. Not exactly.“They’re very explosive,” Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson said of the Bills. “They spread the field out, create space, and just have their athletes in space trying to make plays.”Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson agreed with the idea that the Bills are explosive, pointing the fact that while Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick may be third in the NFL in interceptions thrown (8), he’s also third in touchdown passes (12). Many have come on big plays, which is something the second-year pro said the Cardinals need to do a better job of defending.

suggests So-called debridement involves removing dead or infected tissue and any foreign bodies or bacteria from slow-healing woundssuch as with a scalpel or special cream It’s traditionally performed when a patient first comes in with a woundsaid Dr Robert Kirsnera dermatologist and wound researcher from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine “The real question ishow often do you have to do this” added Kirsnerwho co-wrote a commentary published with the new study Close to seven million Americans each year have a chronic woundfrom diabetes or other causes A few small studies have suggested some types of wounds tend to heal faster with frequent cleaning For their reportJames Wilcox from Healogics – a company that runs wound care centers – and his colleagues tried to expand on those data by reviewing the records of about 155000 patients treated at one of 525 wound centers Between 2008 and 2012those patients were treated for a total of 313000 woundsincluding diabetic foot and pressure ulcerssurgical wounds and cuts from accidents or other trauma The average wound was cleaned out twice The researchers found that healing time varied by the type of woundbut was typically faster with more frequent debridement For examplediabetic foot ulcers healed in an average of 21 days when they were debrided at least weekly and in 76 dayson averagewhen they were debrided once every two weeks or more Traumatic wounds healed in 14 dayson averagewith frequent debridement and in 49 days when they were cleaned out least often Healing time was also longer for deeper and wider woundsthe research team wrote in JAMA DermatologyBacteria can grow over wounds in colonies called biofilmsKirsner said Much like brushing your teeth prevents biofilms from growing on themdebridement may keep wounds free of bacterial colonieshe added But debridement isn’t quite as easy and innocuous as teeth brushing “There’s effort in doing it – there’s effort as far as cost and in theory there could be pain associated with it” Kirsner told Reuters Health “When you perform a surgical procedurethere’s always the risk of infection You wouldn’t want to do debridements if they weren’t necessary” He said patients in the study who had their wounds cleaned out more frequently may have also been better at sticking to other care recommendations – so it’s not clear the faster healing time was due solely to extra debridement Or”It’s possible that if you went to a specialized wound center every week and got a lot of treatments including debridementthat debridement may not have been the only critical thing that was done during that treatment” StillKirsner saidthe evidence is pointing toward a benefit from more frequent cleaning And having slow-healing wounds regularly evaluated is

friends posted negative emotions in their status updates on Facebook Emotions can spread among users of online social networks such as Facebook a new study has found Social scientists at Cornell University the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and Facebook reduced the amount of either positive or negative stories that appeared in the news feed of 689003 randomly selected Facebook users and found that the so-called “emotional contagion” effect worked both ways “People who had positive content experimentally reduced on their Facebook news feed for one week used more negative words in their status updates” said Jeff Hancock professor of communication at Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and co-director of its Social Media Lab “When news feed negativity was reduced the opposite pattern occurred: Significantly more positive words were used in peoples’ status updates” Hancock said The experiment is the first to suggest that emotions expressed via online social networks influence the moods of others the researchers said Researchers in the study never saw the content of actual posts per Facebook’s data use policy; instead they counted only the occurrence of positive and negative words in more than 3 million posts with a total of 122 million words They found that 4 million of those words were “positive” and 18 million were “negative” Hancock said peoples’ emotional expressions on Facebook predicted their friends’ emotional expressions even days later “We also observed a withdrawal effect: People who were exposed to fewer emotional posts in their news feed were less expressive overall on the following days” Hancock said “This observation and the fact that people were more emotionally positive in response to positive emotion updates from their friends stands in contrast to theories that suggest viewing positive posts by friends on Facebook may somehow affect us negatively” he added “In fact this is the result when people are
