first_imgKINGSTON: For his outstanding leadership in guiding Leicester City to its first Barclays Premier League title, telecommunications firm Digicel, one of the main sponsors of the country’s senior men’s national senior football team, salutes Reggae Boy Wes Morgan on the club’s historic achievement. Describing it as “another proud achievement for Jamaica”, Digicel CEO, David Butler, is in high praise for the champion captain. “Against all odds, as captain, Wes Morgan demonstrated solid determination and the will to win in leading his team to a modern-day fairytale ending. Leicester’s accomplishment will go down as one of the greatest achievements in sport and we are so proud that it happened under the captaincy of a Jamaican,” said Butler. The inspirational defender is known for drumming up support globally for the Reggae Boyz, especially during the lead up to tackling other teams vying to qualify for the World Cup. In March, Morgan attended the handover ceremony at Digicel’s headquarters in Kingston, where the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) received another US$3 million (nearly J$350 million) towards the development of various national teams, including the Reggae Boyz, as they take on the Road to Russia. Morgan had tweeted a photo from the event with six other team members to further attract global support for the mission. Digicel is hoping that Morgan becoming the first Jamaican international football player to win the Barclays Premier League will add a fresh motivation to the national team. “This will surely lift the spirits of the Reggae Boyz as they prepare for the Copa America tournament and another important series of qualifying games. When Wes is a champion, Jamaica is a champion,” Butler praised.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde thinks that manager Antonio Conte is Chelsea’s biggest strengthLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 21 – Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had only kind words for Andreas Christensen despite his costly error in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Barcelona in the Champions League.Willian gave the Blues the lead after twice hitting the post at Stamford Bridge, but a misplaced pass from the Dane allowed Andres Iniesta to tee up Lionel Messi for an away-goal equaliser. “It was a great performance, an incredible performance,” Conte said after leaving club captain Gary Cahill on the bench to go with Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, and Cesar Azpilicueta in central defence.“He is only 21 and it is great he can play with that maturity. He was one of the best players. He played a top game and I am very pleased for his performance.“I don’t remember a great save from Thibaut. They had the one chance in the first half with Paulinho and then the second half with [Luis] Suarez.“I think we played a really good game and I must be pleased because my players made a great effort. They followed the plan, the programme we prepared.“They showed themselves to be a really strong team, a fantastic team, but we showed that if we are ready to work very hard together defensively but at the same time when you continue to have the right feeling with the ball to create the chance to score I think that we can try to do something incredible at Camp Nou.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! If you pop open a can of soda and drink only half, what do you do with the rest? Are you so cheap that you save it – or so wasteful that you throw it out? I’ve been thinking about cans of soda since I saw a headline in a supermarket tabloid a few weeks ago. The headline, about a television personality who is a millionaire many times over, said he is “so cheap” he saves half-cans of soda. The tabloid and the story don’t deserve my attention, and I will spare you any names. My point, reinforced by the headline, is that our culture conspires to make it difficult for us to save but easy to waste. Start with the English language. We have plenty of words with negative connotations for folks tight with their money – niggardly, stingy, skinflint, miserly, tightwad, cheap and cheapskate readily come to mind. Positive words for smart savers are much more scarce. Even “frugal,” according to my Webster’s unabridged dictionary, can denote “excessive” savings. And can you think of a word – I can’t – to describe a person who is smart in all aspects of managing money? Being financially clueless also can be perceived as cute. Case in point: Producers of a planned new “reality” television series, “Broke Folk,” announced last month a nationwide search “for unusual, extreme and entertaining stories about real money messes from funny, outgoing and interesting people in over their heads.” You don’t have to wait for “Broke Folk” to air to get some laughs, or at least giggles. Just tune in to the financial call-in shows, where viewers ask the “gurus” and talking heads on TV for advice. Frequently, these callers are asked how much money they owe on their credit cards, how much they contribute to an IRA or 401(k) plan and what kind of investment return they are getting. A common answer, accompanied by giggles, is “I really don’t know.” This is not a putdown of people who find financial matters confusing or intimidating admittedly, they can be. It is, however, a loud warning to stop treating these matters so casually and to start taking financial responsibility. At a minimum, that includes getting a handle on cash flow (how much money comes in and goes out every month), net worth (the value of everything we own minus what we owe) and how our investments are doing. But again, our culture works against us. We don’t want to be perceived as “obsessing” about money, so we fiercely resist what’s arguably the most useful financial exercise we can ever do, which is to account for all our income and expenses as they occur. (We demand that corporations and the government do this but can’t be bothered with our own money.) And we get so caught up with the “daily living” including, for many, accumulating stuff and keeping up with the perceived expectations of others that we neglect to build a basic financial foundation that would make our lives both easier and simpler. “The general public absolutely treats (financial matters) too lightly,” said Benjamin Tobias, a certified financial planner and president of the Financial Planning Association of Broward County, Fla. His observation (I agree): Society puts too much emphasis on appearances, and appearances work against people saving. “People talk about what kind of car they are getting, and other ‘status’ things,” Tobias said. “But it’s a ‘no-no’ to talk (in social settings) about how much you’ve saved for retirement.” Maybe people should start speaking up more about their savings, Tobias said, creating “peer pressure” for others to save. I’ll speak up: I have more than enough money saved to live comfortably the rest of my life. And the few times I’ve had half a can of soda left I’ve always saved it.

first_imgThe family of miracle tourist Kelly Jones have paid tribute to the people of Donegal for helping to find her.In a message sent to donegaldaily.com from the United States last night, her cousin Dana Bailey described Kelly’s rescue from a renovated rectory in Glencolmcille yesterday as “great news.”And in a message to local people, gardai, mountain rescue volunteers, coast guard officials and members of hill walking clubs, Dana told us: “Thanks so much for not giving up the search for my cousin Kelly. “Our family greatly appreciates everyone’s efforts.”Kelly’s dad Ricky is flying in from the southern American state of Georgia tonight and is due to arrive in Ireland tomorrow.The tourist will be interviewed by gardai at Sligo General Hospital later today if she is well enough to answer questions.Gardai want to trace her movements from Saturday past at 11am until her miracle discovery at 12.30pm yesterday when she was spotted inside the old rectory on the outskirts of Glencolmcille – and around 300 metres from the local GAA club where rescue HQ had been set up. CRIME SCENELast night scenes of crime officers from An Garda Siochana sealed off the building for a meticulous forensic examination. Gardai want to know if Kelly was held against her will at any stage.Gardai believe she may have been there for up to three days but aren’t certain at this stage. Two searches were made in the grounds around the building by volunteers. There was no sign of anyone in the house during those searches, though the building – which was locked – was not searched.A window was smashed at the house, but it is unclear whether this was done by rescuers or before they arrived.Kelly was found by local volunteers who noticed her inside the house as they searched the gardens around it. Local garda Odhran McBride was first on the scene. He said he was “delighted” to find her alive.“I was just relieved and wanted to get her medical attention as soon as possible,” said Gda McBride.“I want to pay tribute to all the volunteers and all the local people who spent five days looking for Kelly in and around this area. They showed remarkable community spirit.”The same community spirit was praised by Brian Murray from the Donegal Mountain Rescue. He told us: “We are delighted that Kelly was found alive because to be honest it wasn’t looking good. “We wish her a speedy recovery and are delighted for her and her family over in the States.”And Patrick McBrearty from the Sliabh Liag Hill Walkers tolddonegaldaily.com: “We are delighted that Kelly was found safe and well by gardai and members of our club. We hope she recovers and will be reunited with her family soon.”The garda investigation into her disappearance is well underway. Gardai believe she may have been in the rectory for up to three days but Kelly wasn’t sure how long she had been there or why.Kelly was born in Texas and her family live both there and in Georgia, though recently she was working as a catering manager in Charleston, South Carolina.Donegaldaily.com received a large number of hits from all three States in the past three days since we broke first broke the news of Kelly’s disappearance.MIRACLE OF KELLY JONES: FAMILY SAYS THANKS TO DONEGAL was last modified: September 22nd, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CRIME SCENEDONEGAL MOUNTAIN REFAMILY THANK DONEGALGardaiGELGlencolmcilleGlencolmkilleKELLY JONES FOUND ALIVElast_img read more

first_imgDonegal Sinn Féin public representatives, Deputies Pearse Doherty and Pádraig Mac Lochlainn and their nine county councillors have expressed their concern about proposals to scale back the NowDoc service in the county. They’ve released a statement saying, “We are concerned about proposals to scale back the NowDoc service in North and West Donegal.“People living in rural areas must have equality of access to vital health services with those living in urban areas. Rather than adequately resource the  NowDoc service across Donegal, the HSE on behalf of the Government have placed the onus to deliver the service onto GPs.This has apparently stretched the resources of many GPs, particularly those serving rural communities.In turn proposals have emerged to reduce the current NowDoc service from a doctor and driver on call from 12pm to 8am at three locations in Carndonagh, Letterkenny and Gweedore down to two doctors and drivers based in Letterkenny but available to travel to meet patients in Carndonagh and Gweedore.The current practice of having a further GP on standby for emergencies will continue”. They continued, “The practical issue here is that many families live a short distance from the surgeries in Carndonagh and Gweedore.“If these proposals become a reality, typically the family calling out of hours and in worry and distress will have to wait much longer than at present for the doctor and driver to arrive.“This is a diminution in service and a loss, no matter how it is presented.“The bottom line is that GPs have been forced into this proposal due to a failure by the HSE to adequately resource the NowDoc service.“People living in rural areas of Donegal are being asked again to accept a scaling back of their primary health service and this is not acceptable. “We Sinn Féin public representatives are opposed to these proposals and we welcome the opposition of the other public representatives.“The HSE need to go back to the drawing board”.‘SCALING BACK OF NOWDOC SERVICES SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE’ – DONEGAL SINN FÉIN was last modified: June 8th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:newsPoliticslast_img read more

first_imgIt’s hard to say this delicately, but if left-leaning evolutionists really believe these things, they are certifiably wacko.You know something is nutty when it cannot possibly be true. Any statement that is self-refuting, for instance, is forever false by simple logic. No amount of evidence or argument can change that. Another example is believing contradictory things. Paranoid delusions are a third example of insanity. Finally, rabid hate is a clue something is mentally off. In the following news reports, we won’t claim the believers are stupid; they are obviously not, and some have PhDs. But look at the claims and decide for yourself whether they can hold up to logic or sound evidence.Episode 1: The MatrixDo Brexit and Trump show that we’re living in a computer simulation? (The Conversation). Michael Frazer lists himself as a “Lecturer in Political and Social Theory, University of East Anglia.” In this piece on the popular science dialogue website, he is so incredulous over Trump’s victory and the Brexit vote, he appears to have lost his rational coherence. To him, this is evidence the universe is not real, but a simulation being run by space aliens. He even thinks he knows their moral sense:Recent political events have turned the world upside down. The UK voting for Brexit and the US electing Donald Trump as president were unthinkable 18 months ago. In fact, they’re so extraordinary that some have questioned whether they might not be an indication that we’re actually living in some kind of computer simulation or alien experiment.These unexpected events could be experiments to see how our political systems cope under stress. Or they could be cruel jokes made at our expense by our alien zookeepers. Or maybe they’re just glitches in the system that were never meant to happen. Perhaps the recent mix-up at the Oscars or the unlikely victories of Leicester City in the English Premier League or the New England Patriots in the Superbowl are similar glitches.The problem with using these difficult political events as evidence that our world is a simulation is how unethical such a scenario would be. If there really were a robot or alien power that was intelligent enough to control all our lives in this way, there’s a good chance they’d have developed the moral sense not to do so.Could he possibly know any of this? Some might defend Frazer on the grounds that he is only exploring possibilities. But he could save himself a lot of work by recognizing that the whole idea of arguing for a simulation is self-refuting. If we’re in a simulation, everything is determined. The program would be making him write his opinion on The Conversation. Why not save a step and become a solipsist? The aliens might have his brain in a vat, with electrodes controlling everything he thinks is happening. Reality is unreal. The only way Frazer could step outside of the trap would be to takeon the Yoda Complex, a form of mental self-delusion. It appears that his own left-leaning proclivities are driving him mad at the “unthinkable” political outcomes of recent days. Why are they so unthinkable? Why are they stressful? Why are they a cruel joke? These are marks of a disturbed mind, perhaps a mind accustomed to living in an echo chamber and having to step outside for the first time.Episode II: Intelligent Design is Pseudoscience, but Scientifically UsefulBy anyone’s estimation, the Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb, PhD, is a smart guy. He’s also willing to think outside the box— which is good (see Evolution News 11/04/16, for Loeb’s thoughtful musings on the non-exceptionalism of modern science). His latest outside-the-box venture was published with his Harvard colleague Manasvi Lingam in the Astrophysical Journal, where the two speculate that the fast radio bursts that have baffled astronomers recently (see 2/28/17) might have a non-physical explanation: they might be intentional works of space aliens driving solar-sail spacecraft with energy. SETI, of course, is nothing new, but we will see strange contradictions about this in a moment. His thesis on the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics website explains:The search for extraterrestrial intelligence has looked for many different signs of alien life, from radio broadcasts to laser flashes, without success. However, newly published research suggests that mysterious phenomena called fast radio bursts could be evidence of advanced alien technology. Specifically, these bursts might be leakage from planet-sized transmitters powering interstellar probes in distant galaxies.“Fast radio bursts are exceedingly bright given their short duration and origin at great distances, and we haven’t identified a possible natural source with any confidence,” said theorist Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. “An artificial origin is worth contemplating and checking.”What he and his colleague Manasvi Lingam are saying, essentially, is that a design inference might be justified in this case; at least, it’s worth considering. The Discovery Institute, naturally, latched onto this as a welcome development. Like most secular astronomers these days, Loeb probably shuns intelligent design. But here, he is finding a type of design filter useful. That’s the crazy part: holding to opposite viewpoints simultaneously. And he’s not alone: the news media, sharing the same secular worldview, thought his reasoning was perfectly legitimate. None of them found the contradiction in their worldview:Could Mysterious Cosmic Light Flashes Be Powering Alien Spacecraft? (Mike Wall on Space.com)Could fast radio bursts really be powering alien space ships? (New Scientist)Mike Wall writes thoughtfully,Lingam and Loeb acknowledge the speculative nature of the study. They aren’t claiming that FRBs are indeed caused byaliens; rather, they’re saying that this hypothesis is worthy of consideration.“Science isn’t a matter of belief; it’s a matter of evidence,” Loeb said. “Deciding what’s likely ahead of time limits the possibilities. It’s worth putting ideas out there and letting the data be the judge.”Such lines could have been written by Paul Nelson or any other ID advocate. So that’s the rub; to secularists, intelligent design theory is dangerous and pseudoscientific, except when it’s not.Episode III: Nothing Is SomethingStephen Hawking is smart, right? Sure; he holds the chair of mathematics at Cambridge that Isaac Newton held. But in a case of trying to lift oneself up into the air by one’s own bootstraps, Dr. Hawking teaches that the universe created itself from nothing – and since he is smart, many in Big Media repeat it, and think it’s a profound discovery.  A widely-repeated quote from Hawking’s new book The Grand Design (which is about anything but a designer, since Hawking is an atheist), states: “Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.” On ID the Future, host Jay Richards recalls a quote from the LA Times review of the book where the reporter says, “This is something that must be believed but not understood.” Dr. John Lennox from Oxford replies with a chuckle, “I think I would put it more strongly than that; it can’t be understood because it is self-contradictory.”Lennox points out at least three self-contradictory propositions in Hawking’s ideas. The first and obvious one is that gravity is not nothing; “a law of gravity without gravity would be meaningless.” Next is Hawking’s claim that the universe made itself from nothing (also proposed by Caltech astrophysicist Lawrence Krauss in his book, A Universe from Nothing). The phrase “X created Y” makes sense, Lennox explains, because it implies the pre-existence of X to explain the existence of Y. But to say “X created X” is irrational, because it presupposes the existence X to explain the existence of X. So if you set X equal to “the universe,” Lennox quips, it shows that “nonsense remains nonsense even if  famous scientists talk it.”The third contradiction is Hawking’s page-one claim that “Philosophy is dead.” But then, Hawking proceeds to write a book on philosophy! Lennox jokes that Hawking and his co-author Leonard Mlodinow “prove that as far they’re concerned, philosophy very much is dead.” In a rhetorical coup, Lennox sheds some heavenly light on the hellish insanity of holding to contradictory ideas. Hawking had ridiculed religion in an interview for The Guardian, saying, “Heaven is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.” Lennox was asked to respond in The Daily Mail, “Well, if you want a one-liner at that level,” he told the reporter, “atheism is a fairy story for people afraid of the light.”Richards notes that the average person reading Hawking’s statement about the universe creating itself would think, ‘that doesn’t make any sense.’ But there’s something about the stature or the aura around Stephen Hawking, he says, that reasonable people give him a free pass.Brains and reputation cannot rescue nonsense. If something is self-contradictory, there is no hope for it, no matter who says it.We’ll have examples of contradictory evolutionary opinions in a future post – statements that are ridiculously implausible, or that violate evolutionary theory’s own fundamental principles.We should all strive to have coherent belief systems. We should listen to those who disagree with us, and consider their views fairly. We should follow the evidence where it leads. Not doing so is crazy.(Visited 168 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_img11 May 2012Some of the most expensive properties in South Africa have been bought by foreigners, it’s true. It is also true that the Western Cape especially is home to small colonies of Germans, French and British expats. You can even buy proper Austrian meatloaf and German magazines in Constantia in Cape Town.Currently there is a small, but notable, trend establishing itself: British retirees are increasingly looking to South Africa in their golden years. It turns out that it’s not just due to the fantastic climate or amazing scenery – it’s about saving their pensions.‘Solvency-II for pensions’Due to the worldwide economic crisis, there have recently been a number of proposals – dubbed the “Solvency-II for pensions” – made by the EU that directly affect pensioner’s pockets. The Telegraph reports that the country’s biggest companies (6 850 companies with final salary pension schemes) could see their liabilities skyrocketing to more than double what they are now, and analysts warn that this could force them to close.The bad news continues; according to the Alexander Forbs National Pension Index, retirement incomes in the UK have fallen by £13 000 since 2000. Richard Evans illustrates the real term implications of this in The Telegraph with the analogy that a 30-year-old could expect two-thirds of his or her final salary in 2000. That number has gone down to 39 percent.SA one of seven ‘places to retire’What does any of this have to do with the South African property market?Quite a bit in fact; due to the weak local currency, a British retiree can live well in South Africa – even on a diminished pension. Shelter Offshore, an international expatriate advisory website, indicates that South Africa is currently rated among the seven places to retire for an affordable lifestyle, along with Argentina, Northern Cyprus and Slovenia.Importantly, foreign pensions are not taxed here, whereas a tax-free income limit of £9 205 only will apply as of 2013, after which a tax of 20 percent to 45 percent will take effect in the UK.Craig Featherby, Cape Town-based regional manager of deVere Group, a UK financial advisory firm, recently revealed that “over-55s have lost faith in the UK’s economy, tax and pension system; last year 252 000 people left the UK, and 24 000 of them came to SA.“Certain fears may remain as far as currency fluctuations are concerned, but retiring here must be an attractive option, I think interest might well increase,” believes Jan le Roux, CEO of Leapfrog Property Group.It is safe to assume that many of these retirees will invest in the local property market in their favoured areas: Cape Town, the KwaZulu-Natal coast and, occasionally, in Sandton, Johannesburg.Local market to benefitIt is true that foreign investment makes a small contribution to the local property market.According to the FNB Property Barometer, the impact remains unchanged at four percent. The report does look back at the heydays of 2008, where these investments comprised 20 percent of the market. It is safe to say that such peaks will not soon be repeated.“That being said, four percent may sound low but, one must keep the domino effect in mind; today’s sellers are often tomorrow’s buyers,” says le Roux.As such, South Africa isn’t set to become another Mallorca, where over 60 percent of properties are not owned by local Spaniards but by other nationalities. But it does seem that the local property market could benefit from British pensioners moving here.Sapalast_img read more

These new soybean varieties are the result of innovative soybean research programs and the DuPont Pioneer proprietary Accelerated Yield Technology 4.0 (AYT 4.0).Available for 2017 planting, Pioneer is launching 54 new A-Series soybean varieties from maturity Groups 000 to 7 across North America. In 2016 on-farm Pioneer IMPACT™ plot tests, these varieties produced an average yield advantage of 2.3 bu/acre against 10,000 comparisons of elite competitors at 400 locations.1“This is a historic milestone for Pioneer,” said Steve Reno, vice president, business director – U.S. and Canada. “This new soybean line is producing unprecedented step-change improvements in yields. A-Series will help soybean growers achieve higher yields no matter what their yield goal.”The Pioneer brand A-Series lineup has a broad range of trait options to fit each grower’s unique needs. The North America soybean line consists of more than 30 varieties with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® technology, 11 Glyphosate Tolerant varieties, a Pioneer brand Plenish® high oleic soybean variety plus conventional, LibertyLink® and DuPont™ STS® varieties.  The letter “A” will be part of the Pioneer brand soybean variety names to help growers easily identify the new high-yielding lines.Pioneer brand A-Series soybeans are developed by the industry’s most extensive localized soybean breeding and testing network that is focused on developing high yielding varieties for local environments. Since 2011, Pioneer has increased its local research center network across North America by 30 percent to develop and rigorously test its experimental products in the areas where they will be grown.Pioneer announced in July 2016 it had deployed a new breeding technology called AYT 4.0 across its entire soybean breeding program. The technology has more than doubled the rate of genetic gain of its soybean pipeline and cut the time it takes to bring new products to market. The majority of the A-Series soybean varieties were developed with AYT 4.0.“The investments we have been making in research centers, soybean disease nurseries, innovative technologies and top-notch talent are paying off for growers in A-Series soybeans,” said Reno. “These varieties and new experimental products are being developed and rigorously tested right where they are to be grown by our customers so they have the traits and defensive characteristics needed for local conditions.”Learn more about DuPont Pioneer products and services at pioneer.com or contact your local Pioneer sales professional.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest After a first half of September which was 5 to 10 degrees below average, the second half of September will average 5 to 10 degrees above average making September in the end a near average month but marked by significant differences in the month. Temperatures the week of September 19 through 25 will run 10 to 15 degrees above average with no risk of frost.Rainfall will remain limited in most areas for the rest of September as well. Some rainfall will occur Tuesday Sept. 19 through Wednesday Sept. 20. Rainfall will average less than a tenth of an inch in the southeast half of the state to 0.10 to 0.50 inches in the northwest half with isolated higher totals. After Sept. 20, the next chance for rain does not come up until around Sept. 26 or 27.October OutlookTemperatures are likely to relax closer to normal in October after the warm late September. Rainfall is also expected to increase some especially in the second half of October. We expected October rainfall to be near or slightly below average which is close to 2 inches for the month on average.Tropical OutlookTropical activity looks to stay east of Ohio in the coming weeks. In fact, with storms well east it is enhancing high pressure and drier conditions over the region locally. Historically, storms tend to shift into the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico once we get to October and November. We will have to wait and see if some of that moisture would make its way back into our region.Frost/Freeze OutlookThere is really no risk of frost and freeze conditions for the rest of September. At times we do see historically late September frosts in Ohio but none are expected this year.We have been talking in recent months that data suggest a normal to later than normal frost/freeze in Ohio and that looks still to be the case. Sometime in October we will likely see our first widespread frost and possible freeze and typically that arrives the first two or three weeks of October but chances are growing it will be in the middle to end of the month of October.La Nina Watch issued by NOAA Climate Prediction CenterConfidence is still low to moderate but the NOAA Climate Prediction Center has issued a La Nina watch for cooler equatorial Pacific Ocean water this winter.See: http://www.cpc.noaa.gov/This could lead to a winter and early next spring that is wetter than normal with temperatures starting winter warmer than normal and turning normal to colder than normal. It is too early to tell, but those are some of the early indications.Two week rainfall outlookThe outlook for the next two weeks is normal to below normal rainfall for early harvest in the eastern corn, soybean and wheat areas with much above normal rainfall in western areas as the NOAA/NWS/OHRFCgraphic shows.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Chris ClaytonDTN Ag Policy EditorOMAHA (DTN) — The U.S. Cattlemen’s Association is asking the U.S. treasury secretary to conduct a review of Brazil’s Marfrig Global Foods increasing its stake in Kansas City, Missouri-based National Beef Packing.Marfrig announced in mid-November the company would buy the remaining 31% of National Beef, the fourth-largest meatpacker in the U.S. The shares in National Beef had been owned by the investment firm Jefferies Financial Group. Marfrig had already purchased 51% of National Beef from Jefferies and other shareholders in June 2018.National Beef operates two beef packing plants about 80 miles apart in Kansas. One is in Dodge City and the other is in Liberal. National Beef also owns a packing plant in Tama, Iowa, and operates other case-ready and further-processing plants in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Kansas, Ohio and Missouri.Marfrig announced the purchase of that 31% of shares from Jefferies is already final.USCA wrote Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Wednesday asking him to review the sale under the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, known as CFIUS. The committee is made up of members from several federal agencies, and it meets in closed settings to review foreign acquisitions in critical industries involving infrastructure, technology, manufacturing and mining. In recent years, CFIUS has examined multiple major acquisitions in agriculture, but the Treasury Department has not added a representative from USDA and FDA to join the committee for reviews, despite calls from members of Congress.In its letter, USCA cited work from the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, highlighting that Brazilian meatpackers have benefitted from subsidized loans and other resources from the Brazilian National Development Bank. Marfrig had also settled an agreement with Brazilian prosecutors, paying $28.73 million to cover damages from an earlier bribery investigation.National Beef did not respond to an email seeking comment.Marfrig and one of its main Brazilian competitors, JBS S.A., are now two of four of the largest meatpackers in the United States with Cargill and Tyson Foods being the other two U.S.-based competitors.USCA President Kenny Graner warned of the growing influence of foreign ownership in U.S. agriculture. In an interview, Graner noted a large share of packing capacity is now controlled by Brazil.“You have these foreign owners buying up a large percentage of our kill capacity here in the U.S.,” Graner said. “What is it to them to give back to our rural communities when they just want to take the profits back to Brazil and utilize the exchange rate and become more profitable in their own countries?”Graner added that President Donald Trump has stressed “America first,” but that runs counter to increased foreign ownership, especially when Brazilian beef competes against the U.S. for global exports. “You’ve got political people in both parties working with these foreign investors, but it’s time to put our ag industry first,” Graner said. “Let’s not allow our industry to be sold off to foreign investors.”If CFIUS were to review the sale, the findings would likely remain undisclosed to the public. CFIUS seldom releases details of its reviews and often releases a single report of its work more than a year afterward.The chairman and ranking member of the Senate Agriculture Committee wrote Mnuchin in April 2018 to request a CFIUS review of Marfrig’s initial majority-stake purchase of National Beef. Three other senators signed the letter at the time. The senators cited earlier purchases of major agricultural companies, stating, “It has become increasingly clear that growing foreign investment in U.S. agriculture requires a thorough review process to safeguard the American food system.”The senators added in the 2018 letter that there were also issues over corruption scandals in Brazil “that revealed unacceptable safety and quality issues with Brazilian beef intended for the American market, including Marfrig.”Read the letter here: https://bit.ly/…Grassley said Tuesday he did not recall receiving any response from the Treasury Department regarding the letter. Responding to a question from DTN, Grassley also said he does not think CFIUS takes foreign investment in agriculture as seriously as other industries.“No, but that’s probably because the ignorance of agriculture inside the beltway mentality here,” Grassley said.In October, Sens. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., and Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wrote Mnuchin also raising concerns about Brazilian meatpackers and their expansion in the U.S. Menendez and Rubio specifically asked CFIUS to investigate JBS S.A.’s acquisitions in the U.S.USCA stated the group “believes an investigation into the activities of Marfrig Global Foods is necessary to ensure the safe, affordable and abundant food supply that our nation currently enjoys.”Read the Menendez and Rubio letter here: https://bit.ly/…On Nov. 17, Marfrig’s board of directors unanimously voted to increase Marfrig’s ownership interest in National Beef. Marfrig recently announced its third quarter results showing its North American quarterly revenue at just under $2.25 billion and gross income at $374 million for the quarter. Marfrig also recently signed a partnership with ADM to produce more plant-based products.Chris Clayton can be reached at Chris.Clayton@dtn.comFollow him on Twitter @ChrisClaytonDTN(BAS/CZ)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

first_imgBy Barbara O’Neill, Ph.D., CFP®, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, oneill@aesop.rutgers.eduSaving money is a frequent topic of conversation for service members during the month of February. Between the receipt of tax refunds by early filers, the America Saves and Military Saves campaigns run by the Consumer Federation of America, and the Save Your Refund contest, many people are promoting savings.The Military Families Learning Network is sponsoring a free webinar called Savings Strategies for Military Families on Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 11 a.m. ET. The webinar will cover reasons for saving money, including peace of mind and to have cash available for emergencies and future financial goals.To calculate how much savings is required to achieve a financial goal, divide the amount needed by the time (e.g., number of months) available to save. For example, if you want to save $5,000 by next year, you’ll need to put aside $416.67 ($5,000 divided by 12) a month, or $96.15 ($5,000 divided by 52) a week. Use this worksheet to develop a savings plan.Many people say, “There’s no way I can save any money!” However, later, they find that they can save when they really put their minds to it. Below are seven saving strategies to get started:Pay Yourself First (PYF) – Make saving an “expense” in your spending plan, just like rent or loan payments. To make PYF easy, automate savings through an employer credit union or retirement savings plan or through monthly transfers from a checking account to a savings account or money market fund.Continue Paying A Loan – If you’re about to pay off a car loan or student loan, continue making the same monthly payment – to yourself! You are already used to making this payment so you won’t feel deprived.Bank A Windfall – Whenever you receive unexpected money – an inheritance, bingo winnings, retroactive pay, an insurance dividend, etc. – put at least part of it into savings.Save “Extra” Paychecks – If you are paid bi-weekly, in two months of each year you will receive three paychecks. Employees who are paid weekly will receive an “extra” check in four months of each year. The months vary with each year’s calendar and the day on which you are paid. Save at least part of this money.Save Coupon Money – Set aside the amount you “save” by using coupons at a supermarket or drugstore. Your cash register receipt will indicate the amount that was saved. If you save $20 a week using coupons, put the “savings” (the money you did not spend) into savings account. That’s over $1,000 over the course of a year!Collect Loose Change – Empty out your pockets and wallet and put loose change in a jar. Then periodically deposit the change into a savings account. Studies show that over three-quarters of Americans have a stash of loose change and over half of Americans add to it regularly.Break an Expensive Habit – Every time you don’t buy a donut at coffee break or spend money in a vending machine, save the money you didn’t spend. Ditto for fancy coffee, lottery tickets, and other money “nibblers.”Successful savers develop a spending plan (budget), include savings for emergencies and future financial goals as fixed “expenses,” and automate savings deposits so they don’t require ongoing self-control, Remember that small steps matter. If you want to save $1,000 in a year, pay attention to where nickels and dimes go every day. For more information about saving money, visit AmericaSaves.org.last_img read more

first_imgNana Patole, BJP MP from Bhandara-Gondiya in Maharashtra tendered his resignation from the Lok Sabha on Friday and announced his intention of campaigning for the Congress in Gujarat. Mr Patole will address a rally attended by party vice-president Rahul Gandhi on December 11.The MP sent a single line resignation to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, but elaborated on his reasons for quitting in a two-page letter appended to the resignation, citing rising agrarian distress as the main reason for quitting.Mr Patole announced his intention to campaign for the Congress in Gujarat at a meeting with All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary and Maharashra unit in-charge Mohan Prakash.Mr Prakash said his party was a home for Mr Patole. “He is an old colleague from the party. He has been raising the issues Rahul ji (Congress vice president) and our party have been raising. He did so by staying within the ruling party,” Mr. Prakash said.Farmers’ suicidesThe MP told The Hindu that he was quitting the BJP as he felt that both the Central and State government [in Maharashtra] headed by the BJP were unable to address the issue of agrarian distress.“Farmers suicides have gone up several levels in the last three years and despite having sought time from both Prime Minister [Narendra] Modi and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, I wasn’t given a hearing,” he said.Mr Patole moved to the BJP from the Congress before the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and defeated former Union minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Praful Patel from the Bhandara-Gondiya seat.“All of you are questioning my timing. Let me tell you, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, yesterday reacting to the “neech” comment said he is being insulted for belonging to the OBC community. I want to tell everyone how he insults every OBC MP and party functionary,” Mr Patole said.The MP had earlier spoken out against Mr Modi, who he said, had refused to listen to him at a closed door meeting with BJP MPs from Maharashtra.‘Not joining any party’“I am not joining any political party for the moment,” Mr Patole said. “My identity is not limited to being a parliamentarian. I am a known voice in Maharashtra, who speaks for the farmers. So if need be I can float my own party.”The Congress, he says, is a better party where grievances are heard. In the BJP, he rued that he was treated as an “untouchable”.“The PM invokes his caste at drop of the moment.[But] His caste certificate needs to be verified. Is he an OBC at all? Whenever I mentioned farmers’ distress or rising suicides, I was shouted down by him,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgAs most of the Dutch team was packing its orange bags in the country’s only indoor nets on a freezing night in late January, hard-hitting all-rounder Ryan Ten Doeschate was gearing up to play for Tasmania against New South Wales in the finals of Australia’s Twenty20 competition.Ryan Ten DoeschateSouth African-born Ten Doeschate and South Australia’s Tom Cooper are the higher-profile players in a Netherlands team of relative unknowns that is also made up of students, a tobacconist and a hamburger restaurant owner. Many of the players had to take time off work or study to travel to the World Cup.But the Dutch part-timers have proven in the past they are capable of pulling off a shock, beating hosts England by four wickets in the opening match of the 2009 Twenty20 World Cup.”The target for us is obviously to cause upsets, make an impression,” New Zealand-born captain Peter Borren said. “And to do that, we need to knock off one of the big boys.”Realistically, however, the Netherlands will be targeting their two last Group B matches, against Bangladesh and Ireland as games to win.Before those two matches, the Netherlands takes on England in its opener at Nagpur on Feb. 22, followed by West Indies, South Africa and India.Borren said subcontinent cricket is not new to the team as it embarks on its fourth World Cup campaign.”In the last four years we’ve probably been to India maybe five or six times so everyone’s had some experience there,” he said. “But obviously not all that much experience playing at that level in those conditions.”advertisementNetherlands made its World Cup debut in 1996 and appeared at the last two editions of cricket’s showcase tournament in 2003 and 2007. So far its only two World Cup wins have been over fellow minnows Namibia, in 2003, and Scotland in 2007.Selector and former captain Tim de Leede said the Netherlands has no genuinely fast pace bowler to spearhead its attack and will rely on steady medium pacers and a pair of economical slow bowlers – off spinner Adeel Raja and left arm orthodox Pieter Seelaar.”They have to bowl line and length and hopefully the fielders will do as well as they possibly can to support them,” De Leede said.In its race to catch up with the rest of the cricketing world, the Netherlands has been using specialist fielding, batting, bowling and wicketkeeping coaches and has a full-time coach, Australian Peter Drinnen.”They have more professionals than ever. They have a full-time coach, they have specialists coming in … so there are really no excuses any more,” De Leede said.Batting is the Netherlands’ strongest suit, with Eric Szwarczynski, a fluid strokemaker who has a knack for finding gaps in the field and Worcester’s Alexei Kervezee likely to open. Pakistan-born bowler Mudassar Bukhari – usually a lower order hitter – also can open in limited-overs matches.The middle order will feature professionals Ten Doeschate, Borren and Cooper, who has a one-day average of 65.44 in his 10 matches for the Netherlands – most of them against second-tier associate opposition, including 80 not out on debut against Scotland.Seelaar says the likes of Borren and Ten Doeschate have changed the way many homegrown players approach the game and he hopes the new mind set will pay dividends at the World Cup.”I think we now are getting close to a professional setup now,” he said. “The pros teach us how to be pros.”last_img read more

Changzhou: B Sai Praneeth suffered a three-game loss to world no.9 Anthony Sinisuka Ginting in the quarterfinals to draw curtains on India’s campaign at the China Open World Tour Super 1000 badminton tournament here on Friday.Almost a month after dispatching the Indonesian en route his historic world championships bronze at Basel, world no.15 Praneeth went down to the same opponent 21-16 6-21 16-21 in 55 minutes to end his campaign here. Ginting will now take on eighth-seeded Denmark’s Anders Antonsen, who had clinched the silver at the World Championships.Praneeth, who had reached the finals of Swiss Open early this year, came into the match with a 3-2 advantage in the head-to-head count against Ginting but he ran out of steam after winning the opening game.Praneeth opened up a 3-0 lead early on and then kept widening the gap, reaching 11-3 at the break.Ginting tried to make a comeback and was 11-14 at one stage but the Indian ensured there were no hiccups as he pocketed the opening game comfortably.In the second game, Ginting galloped to a 9-4 lead after grabbing six straight points and entered the interval with a cushion of 11-5.The Indonesian continued to rule the roost after the break, jumping to a massive 18-6 lead and soon roared back into the contest.The decider was a close affair as Praneeth erased a 2-6 deficit to catch up with Ginting and was ahead 11-7 at the breather. A fighting Ginting, however, turned the tables after reeling off six points on the trot to reach 13-12.The Indonesian kept his hold on the proceedings after that to grab four match points and converted it easily to enter the semifinals.Last month, Praneeth had reached the semifinals of the World Championships to end India’s 36-year wait for a men’s singles medal at the tournament.He emulated legendary Prakash Padukone, who had also won a bronze at the 1983 edition. b sai praneethbadmintonChangzhouchina open First Published: September 20, 2019, 2:06 PM ISTlast_img read more

first_img Continue Reading Previous Development platform to offer open unified environmentNext Designing electronic speed controllers for drones NXP Semiconductors rolled out a new deep learning toolkit called eIQ Auto. NXP is seeking to set itself apart from competitors by making its tools “automotive-quality.” NXP’s goal is to make it easier for AV designers to implement deep learning in vehicles.The development of autonomous vehicles (AV) does not necessarily require either artificial intelligence or deep learning. Simply put, not all AVs need to be AI-driven. And yet the rapid advancements and improved accuracy of deep learning are alluring to developers seeking to improve their highly automated vehicles.The difficulty of validating safety of AI-driven AVs persists, however. Safety researchers worry about the “black-box” nature of deep learning, and that’s only one of several thorny issues. It remains uncertain whether AV designers can verify and validate a continuously learning AI system, or if an AI feature, once deployed in dedicated hardware inside a vehicle, will behave the same as when it was developed and trained on a larger, more powerful computer system.Despite such concerns, both AV and safety communities recognize that AI is not a topic they can avoid discussing.With the release of draft specifications for UL 4600 last week, Phil Koopman, CTO of Edge Case Research, told us, “We will go after full autonomy head-on.”UL 4600, a safety standard for evaluating autonomous products currently under development at Underwriters’ Laboratories, neither assumes nor mandates that deep learning should be deployed inside AVs. But the standard covers the validation of any machine-learning and other autonomy functions used in life-critical applications.Automotive-grade software tool kit for deep learningAgainst this backdrop, NXP Semiconductors introduced its eIQ Auto deep learning toolkit.“Most deep-learning frameworks and neural nets developed thus far are used for consumer applications such as vision, speech and natural language,” observed Ali Osman Ors, director, Automotive AI Strategy and Partnerships at NXP Semiconductors. They are not necessarily developed with life-critical applications in mind.Click here for larger image (Source: NXP)(Source: NXP) Click here for larger imageNXP, a leading automotive chip supplier, is going a step further by making its software toolkit compliant with Automotive Software Performance Improvement and Capability dEtermination (A-SPICE). A-SPICE is a set of guidelines developed by German automakers to improve software development processes.NXP explained that its eIQ Auto tool set — designed specifically for NXP’s S32V234 processor — will help AV developers “optimize the embedded hardware development of deep learning algorithms and accelerate the time to market.”Asked if there are similar auto-grade tool kits available for deep learning, Ors said, “Some car OEMs might have designed their own tools in-house. But as far as I know, I haven’t seen other automotive chip vendors offering automotive-quality software tool kits like ours for deep learning.”Pruning, quantization and compressingThe process of data preparation and training (learning) and the process of AI deployment (inference) on embedded systems are well understood.Today, AV developers are said to be collecting data at 4Gigabytes per second as their test vehicles drive on public roads. Cleaning up and annotating such a huge amount of data and prepping it for training data can be very costly. In some cases, the data-labeling processing alone can financially cripple algorithm developers and AV startups.But equally challenging to AV designers, though little discussed publicly, are the arduous tasks involved in optimizing a trained AI model and converting it for deployment (on inference engines). Ors explained that NXP’s tool accelerates the process of “quantization, pruning and compressing” the neural network.By pruning, Ors means removing redundant connections present in the neural net architecture, by cutting out unimportant weights. Of course, a new “pruned” model will lose accuracy. Hence, the model has to be fine-tuned after pruning to restore its accuracy.Next up, quantization creates an “efficient computing process,” said Ors. It involves bundling weights by clustering them or rounding them off so that the same number of connections can be represented using less memory. Another common technique is converting floating-point weights to fixed point representation by rounding off. As with pruning, the model must be fine-tuned after quantization.AV designers evaluate the accuracy of the converted model by running test data (which the deep learning system hasn’t seen before) and further fine-tune the model.Click here for larger image (Source: NXP)(Source: NXP) Click here for larger imagePartitioning workloadBeyond that, eIQ Auto, said NXP, “partitions the workload and selects the optimum compute engine for each part of the neural network.” It speeds the process of hand-crafting the inference engine, because the tool can help AV designers figure out which tasks run best among CPU, DSP or GPU, Ors explained. He said that eIQ Auto can’t be used for non-NXP devices, as the tool must be intimately familiar with what’s happening inside the processor.>> Continue reading the next section, “Where AI is applied inside AV”, on page two of this article originally published on our sister site, EE Times: “NXP Touts Auto-Grade AI Toolkit for AVs.”Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Automotive, Solutions last_img read more

first_imgDefending champion Lewis Hamilton has extended his lead over Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel after an easy victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday. Hamilton, who won from pole position, is now 24 points ahead of second-placed Vettel after back-to-back victories.The four-time champion recorded his fifth win of the season and has now accumulated 213 points going into the summer break.The Mercedes’s star driver is now looking forward to enjoying almost a month-long break before they return for the next race in Belgium.”I really could only have dreamed that we would be in the position that we are in right now,” he told reporters. “I’m really happy, going into the break, particularly with back-to-back wins.”I think that boost will last a long time for our team and it’s encouraging for everyone so I’m excited for the break,” added the Briton.”We’ve definitely had ups and downs in this Championship, it’s such a rollercoaster ride – but the team has just remained strong.”More from @LewisHamilton https://t.co/FCeXjGTGmr #HungarianGP pic.twitter.com/LIn2pbqA3dMercedes-AMG F1 (@MercedesAMGF1) July 29, 2018Vettel took the chequered flag 17.1 seconds behind, after surviving a late collision with Hamilton’s teammate Valtteri Bottas who also banged bodywork with Red Bull’s Australian Daniel Ricciardo.Ferrari, mourning the death of former chairman Sergio Marchionne, had Kimi Raikkonen finish third to complete a podium of champions on a dry and sweltering afternoon at the Hungaroring outside Budapest.The victory was Hamilton’s record sixth in Hungary and 67th of his career.advertisementIn a race effectively decided by Saturday’s wet qualifying, when Mercedes locked out the front row of the grid against expectation, Hamilton was never challenged.”We came here knowing Ferrari would be really quick this weekend so to come out with these points, we’ll definitely take it as a bonus,” said Hamilton in a pitlane interview after embracing team members.What a beautiful day its been! Im so proud of the hard work, vision and determination by our team. A huge, huge thank you to everyone. Challenges were definitely presented to us this weekend and we overcame them together @MercedesAMGF1 #HungarianGP #F1 @latimages pic.twitter.com/402taEflvKLewis Hamilton (@LewisHamilton) July 29, 2018″I’m really happy with how strong it’s come in the last couple of races. We’ve got to come strong in the next half,” added the 33-year-old, who won in Germany from 14th place on the grid a weekend earlier.Tyre strategies were also crucial at a relatively slow and twisty circuit where overtaking is always difficult, with track temperatures hovering around 50 degrees Celsius.Vettel started on the softs and went for a longer first stint than Mercedes, worried by Ferrari’s quick getaways, who opted for ultrasofts that were quicker at the start but faded more rapidly.Lining up in fourth place on the grid, Vettel grabbed third from Raikkonen immediately but could not find a way past Bottas who slotted in behind Hamilton as a defence against the red threat.”We were out of position. I think we could have gone with Lewis today with the race pace,” said Vettel.”P2 is not really what we wanted this weekend but I think it was the maximum today.”ANGRY VERSTAPPENRaikkonen, without water during the race after Ferrari forgot to connect the bottle, made two stops and agreed third – his fifth successive podium finish – was the best he could have hoped for in the circumstances.”We caught up with Bottas after the first stop but there was no chance to overtake. So our option was to stop again and try again. At least we got one place back but far from ideal,” said the Finn.”I think we had pretty good speed today. But what can you do? Sometimes it’s like that, but you take the points and go on to the next one.”Ricciardo, starting 12th, finished fourth but his Dutch team mate Max Verstappen retired early on with a Renault engine failure that infuriated both driver and team boss Christian Horner.”We pay multi-millions of pounds for these engines and for first class, or state-of-the-art, product and you can see it’s quite clearly some way below that,” said Horner.Bottas ended up fifth, and was handed a 10 second post-race penalty for the Ricciardo collision, with French driver Pierre Gasly sixth for Toro Rosso.Kevin Magnussen was a lapped seventh for Haas, lifting the U.S.-owned team to fifth and ahead of Force India, with double world champion Fernando Alonso eighth for McLaren on his 37th birthday.advertisementCarlos Sainz took two points for Renault in ninth and Romain Grosjean made sure of another for Haas.(Report courtesy Reuters)last_img read more

The Syrian controlled Al Dawsari’s miskick and finished from close range to bring the Saudi side level. In the second half, Al Hilal continued their dominance and Urawa were given a blow when Rafael Silva was taken off injured. Khribin himself had numerous opportunities to take the lead for his side with Urawa defending for their lives at times. But, even with four minutes of added time, Al Hilal were unable to force a winner and now face an uneviable task of being forced to score in the second leg in Japan.last_img read more

And Messi, whose block was total. Read more Share via Email Shambolic, frenzied, anarchic – and Argentina crisis has Messi at its heart World Cup Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email 0:29 On 22 June 1986 a single Argentina player managed to surpass all that by scoring two goals, one with his hand and the other a stunning solo run that still ranks as one the best in history. Those few minutes on the pitch shifted the focus for ever and opened the gateways for further volumes; poets, intellectuals, investigative journalists and conspiracy theorists would be occupied for 20 years more producing great works that only a muse of Maradonian proportions could inspire. Argentina went on to lift the World Cup again.Fast-forward to 21 June 2018. Argentina, having entered the World Cup with a small player widely regarded as the Goat – an unfortunate acronym for Greatest Of All Time – with the ghosts of these two tournaments weighing heavily on his shoulders, have all but disappeared. Ninety agonising minutes of a shambolic performance, featuring a completely absent and disconnected Lionel Messi and a terrible goalkeeping faux pas that sunk spirits on the pitch, opened the way for a worthy Croatia’s 3-0 win.The blame game and finger‑pointing started swiftly. Within an hour an audio file of Diego “Cholo” Simeone – purportedly having a private conversation with his Atlético Madrid assistant Germán “Mono” Burgos – was viral online. “But if you had to pick one for your team, who would you choose: Messi or Ronaldo?” his distinctive voice says.Jorge Sampaoli, who a year into the job has not fielded the same team twice, who has always proclaimed a love for a back three yet never until this fateful night deployed one, who has been repeating ad infinitum that what he was working towards was “connectivity” that would bring out the best Messi, had left the pitch insulted and insulting. “Smoke seller,” angry Argentina fans said.He assumed responsibility for the fiasco and said “the project failed” before, as if immediately aware that these words were digging a deeper grave, corrected himself: “The project of this game failed.”Minutes later a journalist confronted Sergio Agüero with a slight edit: “Sampaoli says the players didn’t adapt to the project.” Agüero looked startled. “He can say whatever he likes,” he uttered with a killer look in his eyes and walked off. By morning rumours of resignations and mutiny had been raised and denied several times.There is no sign the that Argentinian Football Association can steer the path to a brighter future. For the past four years it has talked of rebuilding, restructuring and reforming but all it has managed to do is repeat, relive and reinforce the worst traits and attitudes. Perhaps most damagingly, it opened bids for a youth training project and chose one that was not even part of the bidding contest. Until 15 years ago the country had boasted, for the better part of a century, some of the best and most progressive child and adolescent development traditions in world football. That has been obliterated. Twitter center_img Share on LinkedIn Reuse this content If football is a war game, a strategic proposal to defeat an adversary through carefully rehearsed combat manoeuvres, a tactically weak and psychologically frail Argentina did not achieve this: the project has failed.It is as if the doors of perception have been opened and everything is finally presented before us as it is. A circus with bitter clowns, no safety net under the trapeze, a malnourished caged tiger and a knife-thrower who aims at the heart of his sidekick. The lady in the box is sawn in half and the chained man in the glass box of water is not even trying to break free. Play Video Share on WhatsApp World Cup features It was clear as the national anthem played that something else was on Messi’s mind. He looked down and scratched his forehead, as if trying to remove something from his head. After that he was largely absent. The superlative Croatia midfielder Luka Modric was generous in the mixed zone: “Messi is an incredible player but in football you need help from the team. We were able to close down spaces and stop Mascherano and other players from passing to him. He is a great, great player but he can’t do everything alone.” Sampaoli also tried in vain to detract fault from Messi.“Yes, yes! Yes, I want Messi to do it!” one deranged pundit on Argentinian TV screamed at the camera, banging on the table. “You, Messi: I want you to do it! I’m asking you!” he continued.If football is escapism and the fans were hoping to forget the torrid times of rising unemployment and galloping devaluation for a few minutes, the project has most certainly failed.If football is a game of beauty and entertainment to be enjoyed by players and observers alike, the project has most certainly failed. It was painful to watch, not only for Argentinians, and those young men who took to the pitch were definitely not enjoying it. In fact, their suffering was palpable.

first_imgzoom German liner shipping company Hapag-Lloyd completed the planned capital increase of EUR 370 million (USD 453.5m) as part of the business combination with the Chilean shipping company Compañía Sud Americana de Vapores (CSAV). As planned, CSAV subscribed to EUR 259 million (USD 317.5m) and Kühne Maritime made a cash contribution of EUR 111 million (USD 136m). The capital increase had already been agreed upon mid-April with the signing of the contracts to combine CSAV’s container business with Hapag-Lloyd. It was to be implemented by the end of 2014.After the capital increase, the shareholders of Hapag-Lloyd AG hold the following stakes: CSAV with 34%, HGV (City of Hamburg) 23.2%, Kühne Maritime 20.8%, TUI 13.9%, Signal Iduna 3.3%, HSH Nordbank 1.8%, M.M.Warburg & CO 1.8% (including two private investors) and HanseMerkur 1.1%.

first_imgCALGARY – A Calgary Herald newspaper column on sexual misconduct accusations against U.S. Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh has prompted two women on Calgary city council to shun interview requests from the paper.In her Wednesday column headlined “Kavanaugh doesn’t deserve this. What happened in high school stays in high school,” Naomi Lakritz wrote that the #MeToo movement has created the equivalent of a Salem witch trial for Kavanaugh.The column triggered a backlash on social media, including Twitter announcements from councillors Jyoti Gondek and Druh Farrell that they would not accept interview requests from the paper until the editorial was retracted and an apology issued.In a statement to CTV Calgary, Herald editor-in-chief Lorne Motley says freedom of speech is important and the columnist’s role at a newspaper is to express an opinion.Three women have come forward since Kavanaugh’s nomination was announced with allegations that include sexual assault, indecent exposure and sexual misconduct.One of them — Christine Blasey Ford — testified before a U.S. Senate hearing Thursday that the nominee assaulted her in 1982, but Kavanaugh refuted the accusation when he later appeared before the panel.In her tweet, Gondek wrote that while she is not a “big newsmaker,” she will not be replying to interview requests from Calgary Herald journalists “until the editorial board recognizes the impact of their decision to minimize the gravity of high school sexual assault.”Farrell said in her posting that although the newspaper has some great writers, “I can’t stand by while sexual assault is trivialized. I stand with my colleague (Gondek) in support of women. I won’t be taking interview requests until they retract and apologize.”Other social media postings have called for the cancellation of Herald subscriptions, or the pulling of advertising.Early Thursday afternoon, Lakritz issued a statement to CTV Calgary saying she was not weighing in on whether Kavanaugh is guilty or not.“I obviously don’t have any knowledge of that. What I’m saying is that whatever someone allegedly did as a 15-year-old should not count against him when he’s a man of 53, decades removed from the teenager he once was. Were we all perfect angels at 15? I doubt it. Would we want something we may have done at 15 to affect our lives as mature adults at 40 or 50? Obviously not.”Lakritz said the councillors who have decided to boycott the paper’s reporters “are obviously sadly unaware of the principles of free speech.”The Herald said in its Friday edition that its editorial pages reflect a variety of opinions, with the goal of stirring debate.“We do believe in open debate, vigorous dialogue and free speech, including — of course — for those people who have been subjected to sexual assault and sexual misconduct. Those who stand up to their abusers and those who share their stories should be applauded, not shouted down. Their decisions to speak their truth are actions that merit consideration and respect.” (CTV Calgary, The Canadian Press)last_img read more

Rabat – The government appears to have taken back its decision to deny civil society a position in the National Anti-Corruption Commission, instead giving two Moroccan NGOs seats in the commission for a two-year term as full members.Having reviewed the executive text of the composition of the National Anti-Corruption Commission, the head of the commission, El Othmani said during a meeting of the Governing Council on September 21 that two seats will be reserved for the NGOs.“In principle, it is the most representative NGO in this field [anti-corruption] that will be given the seats. However, it will be up to the head of government, the president of the commission, to decide by decree,” reported Telquel. The executive draft setting out the hierarchy of power within the commission had sparked controversy, as it stated that NGOs would not have the status of full members.The director of Transparency Maroc, Fouad Zirari, said to the same source on June 5 that he had learned “by rumor” that civil society organiations would not be invited to the new National Anti-Corruption Commission.“We were involved in the preparation of the national anti-corruption strategy adopted two years ago, which would systematically be followed by the creation of an anti-corruption commission. We learned that the government has finally decided to create a commission alone, without the participation of NGOS and civil society,” said Zirari.The president claimed that “the government does not really have the will to fight against corruption, otherwise it would have integrated the civil society without which nothing could be possible in this fight. The commission would only become a is only a showcase to make a good impression on the international scene.” read more

BERLIN — Germany’s environment minister says the government will discuss introducing a carbon tax as part of its national plan to curb climate change.Speaking after the first meeting of a special “climate Cabinet,” German Environment Minister Svenja Schulze said Wednesday that government ministers would, over the coming months, put forward proposals for cutting greenhouse gases in the areas they oversee.Germany’s transport ministry opposes sector-specific targets, but Schulze insisted “everyone will have to shoulder some of the responsibility.”She also displayed openness to some kind of carbon tax. Other countries have already introduced carbon pricing to discourage the burning of fossil fuels that emit greenhouse gases and stoke global warming.Schulze said of such carbon taxes that “there are many different models that will also be debated in Cabinet.”The Associated Press read more

Expressing broad criticism of Liberia’s Transitional Government, the United Nations Security Council today unanimously extended for six months the existing sanctions against the West African country’s diamond exports, which it said have been increasing, and re-established a panel to investigate if and how funds are being raised to buy weapons to foment new violence. Describing the context in which it was making its decision on diamonds, the Council noted its concern over “the increase in unlicensed mining and illegal exports of diamonds and the National Transitional Government of Liberia’s agreement to, and lack of transparency in, granting exclusive mining rights to a single company.”On this basis, therefore, it said, it would renew the measures on diamond exports imposed by its embargo of 2003 for a further period of six months from the date of adoption of this resolution.It urged the NTGL to intensify its efforts, with the support of the peacekeeping UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), “to establish its authority over the diamond-producing areas, and to work towards establishing an official Certificate of Origin regime for trade in rough diamonds that is transparent and internationally verifiable, with a view to joining the Kimberley Process.” Kimberley verifies that the exports are not “blood diamonds” being sold to buy arms for militias.Even though the presence of UNMIL had improved security, the Security Council said, the NTGL had not extended its authority over the country’s timber producing areas, or its borders and, although there was no evidence now of illegal timber exports, the NTGL had undertaken few of the reforms that would lead to the lifting of the export embargo.The Council called on the NTGL, therefore, “urgently to intensify its efforts to reform the Forestry Development Authority, to implement the Liberia Forest Initiative and to implement the Forest Concession Review Committee’s recommendations for reform, which will ensure transparency, accountability and sustainable forest management and contribute towards the lifting of the measures on timber.”It invited the Government to consider hiring independent, temporary, external advisers on the management of Liberia’s diamond and timber resources so as to increase investor confidence and attract additional donor support.The NTGL had not established the transparent financial accounting that would ensure that government revenues were not being used for fuelling conflict, but were used, instead, for the benefit of the Liberian people. Without this improvement, the Council said it would not unfreeze funds, other financial assets and economic resources seized last year.Former President Charles Taylor, now living in exile in Nigeria, and his associates continued to be banned from using stolen property to interfere in restoring peace and stability in Liberia and the sub-region, the Council said. read more

The audit is part of a plan brokered by the United States and agreed to by the two candidates in the run-off, Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani, who have committed to participating in and abiding by its results. It involves a complete audit of the results of the run-off held on 14 June – roughly eight million ballots – in Kabul with monitoring by national and international observers. UNAMA said in a statement that the process is being conducted by Afghanistan’s Independent Election Commission (IEC), under close and extensive supervision led by the UN. The Director of the UN Electoral Assistance Division, Craig Jenness, is in Kabul to supervise the preparations for the unprecedented audit. The IEC is also being assisted by the experts from the UN Development Programme (UNDP).Conducted in accordance with international standards, the audit will abide by an IEC checklist as well as UN recommendations. Any disputes and outstanding questions will be referred to the UN for advice, including on international best practices. The UN will also provide advice to the IEC Board of Commissioners throughout the process, the Mission said.In addition to several international election observers in the country to monitor the review, agents of the Presidential candidates, various international media and UN advisors are also taking part in ensuring the audit’s fairness and objectivity. UNAMA said it hopes the audit will strengthen the credibility of the country’s electoral process and that the results will be accepted by the two campaigns as well as all Afghans. For weeks, both presidential candidates had requested a full investigation of serious and credible allegations of fraud and have strongly urged measures that would separate fraudulent ballots from valid votes. UNAMA had shared these concerns and supported an extensive and thorough investigation and audit. read more

The incident occurred on Tuesday as the fans were en route via Paris Métro to watch the Champions League tie between Paris Saint-Germain and the London-based football team. They were filmed chanting a chorus that flaunted their racism as they prevented a French citizen of African descent from boarding the train at the Richelieu-Drouot Metro station. “In recent years we have been engaging in discussions with both FIFA [Fédération Internationale de Football Association] and UEFA [Union of European Football Associations] about exploring ways to enhance the effort to drum racism out of football after numerous examples of racist behaviour by football fans, especially inside stadiums,” the High Commissioner’s spokesperson, Rupert Colville, told a press briefing in Geneva earlier today. “The events in the Richelieu-Drouot Metro station in Paris show that much work remains to be done before racism is truly eradicated from sport, let alone from society at large.” Mr. Colville acknowledged that as the filmed incident garnered attention through its extensive distribution in the media, condemnation of the fans’ behaviour had been widespread and forthcoming. As a result, he added, the UN rights agency welcomed the condemnation by politicians, media and other commentators as well as the decision by French and British authorities to launch an investigation. Nonetheless, he continued, it remained important to recognize that the racism exhibited at the Richelieu-Drouot Metro station was not an isolated event. A recently released UN report investigating the roots of racism in sport has, in fact, acknowledged numerous examples of European football-related incidents in which players were racially targeted with monkey calls and had bananas thrown at them, as well as the rising presence of far-right and nationalist groups in stadia across the continent.“Similar acts of cruel and casual racism take place every single day, all across Europe, without arousing much indignation, because they are not caught on camera,” Mr. Colville said. “It is important to build on the outrage created by this snapshot of the ugly face of racism, to re-energize the effort to combat it in all its forms wherever it occurs.” read more

first_imgWith the rapid onset of the worldwide recession in late 2008, marked by sharp drops in commodity prices that continued well into 2009 – especially among base metals – acquisitions activity almost ground to a halt. This is one of the findings from Metals Economic Group’s (MEG) recent Strategic Report. The publication shows that the volume of large acquisitions in 2009 decreased by 66% from 2008, the third consecutive annual decrease in acquisitions spending since the historical high in 2006. Although in nominal terms the 2009 total was still the fifth-highest annual total in the past ten years, the steep year-on-year drop from 2008 is slightly more than the 65% decline from 2001 to 2002, at the bottom of the cycle.Data analysed from MEG’s Base Metals and Gold Acquisitions services shows a 79% plunge in base metals acquisitions spending from just over $32 billion in 2008 to just under $7 billion in 2009, the largest year-on-year decline in base metals spending since 1990. In contrast, 2009 gold acquisitions decreased by a relatively mild 18%, from almost $9 billion in 2008 to just over $7 billion.Of the 31 base metals transactions considered in 2009, Australia-Pacific was by far the richest regional target in 2009 in terms of in-situ value acquired, with seven transactions totalling almost $113 billion in in-situ value-38% of the $290,278 million total value acquired. Africa was second with five deals totalling almost $63 billion in value. Of the 43 gold acquisitions, Africa, with 28% of the $95,152 million in-situ total value acquired, had six transactions containing $26,642 million of resources in the ground.MEG’s Strategic Report provides informed, insightful analysis for mining industry planners, analysts, executives, and exploration managers. Published since 1982, the Strategic Report draws on MEG’s wealth of knowledge and insight in a bi-monthly compilation of timely, informative, and analytical articles on critical supply-side issues facing the global mining industry.

first_imgWith both Microsoft and Sony opting for x86 AMD hardware inside their next-generation consoles, there’s been a lot of speculation about how close in performance the two machines actually are. Rumors have suggested that the GPU inside the PS4 is more powerful, and there’s a lot more memory bandwidth. Digital Foundry even went so far as to create PCs to represent each console in order to compare them.There is no method of comparison to perfectly recreate the hardware without actually having the hardware to test. But some people are privy to details of the hardware ahead of launch, such as legendary engine developer John Carmack.If Carmack comments on hardware then you know that he’s looked at it in depth. And in the case of the PS4 and Xbox One, he knows the details of both under NDA and talked about them during his QuakeCon speech yesterday. His verdict? The machines are “essentially the same.”Carmack comments that it’s actually weird just how similar the two consoles are and wonders what kind of back room meetings went on that ultimately made that happen. He also points out that a few years ago we didn’t think AMD would be a major player in the games hardware market as Intel was touting Larrabee. But here we are, with AMD about to dominate the console market.As Carmack points out, having two machines that are essentially the same is actually great for developers as it cuts down on the work involved porting games. As we’ve said before, it’s also great for PC gamers as developers will essentially have a PC build when they complete the console versions of their games.So, regardless of what performance comparisons are done between now and the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One, we have it on good authority that the machines are the same regardless of slight differences in memory and GPU speeds. I get the feeling Carmack would choose to purchase a PS4, though. He isn’t a fan of Kinect and believes it has fundamental limitations with regards to framerate and latency. He goes on to say it’s like a “zero button mouse,” which is his way of explaining the motion controller is lacking as an interaction device–you want more control and it doesn’t offer that (yet).last_img read more

first_imgLa génération Internet n’aime pas les réseaux sociaux proTrès présents sur les réseaux sociaux “traditionnels”, les jeunes diplômés boudent en revanche les réseaux professionnels, au grand dam des entreprises.C’est un drôle de paradoxe auquel on peut assister ces derniers temps. Friands de réseaux sociaux tels que Facebook ou Twitter, les étudiants et jeunes diplômés boudent en revanche les réseaux sociaux à usage professionnel, comme Viadeo ou LinkedIn. Pourtant, ils feraient mieux de s’y mettre, tant les entreprises aiment désormais y avoir recours pour “chasser” les nouveaux talents, explique l’AFP.En effet, l’offre est de plus en plus importante dans le secteur puisqu’aux côtés des deux leaders mondiaux Viadeo et LinkedIn, une multitude de petits sites font régulièrement leur apparition attiré par l’énorme potentiel des quelque 4 millions d’étudiants et diplômés de moins de 25 ans. C’est sur cela même que compte par exemple Wizbii.com, qui ambitionne de devenir le premier réseau social professionnel pour les jeunes de 18 à 30 ans. “Plus de 85% des jeunes vont sur Facebook mais moins de 8% sont actifs sur les réseaux professionnels car ils ne correspondent pas à leurs attentes, selon une étude que nous avons effectuée auprès de 1200 étudiants”, explique Benjamin Ducousso, l’un des trois fondateurs de Wizbii. “Notre site a été conçu par des étudiants, et nous disposons d’un algorithme particulier pour ‘matcher’ au mieux les demandes des jeunes et les offres des entreprises. L’idée est de créer une communauté où les jeunes se rencontrent, font des projets ensemble, et trouvent un travail grâce à leurs profils”, détaille-t-il encore.

first_imgKolkata: The alumni of 1993 batch of IIT Kharagpur have joined hands with their alma mater to set up six Distinguished Chair Professorships in AI and Machine Learning in memory of their martyred batch mate. Ajay Kumar Singh, an IPS officer, had laid down his life during an operation against insurgents near Ranchi in 2000.IIT KGP Director Prof Partha Pratim Chakrabarti said on his Facebook page, “A Truly KGP-ian way to remember a martyred batch mate who had dedicated his life in Service of the Nation and performed the highest sacrifice. Let us use this to build a new initiative to touch the lives of the People of India. Thanks 1993 team. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsIIT KGP is already in the process of setting up a Centre for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and researchers in several departments in the institute are working on product development or applications related to AI.The campaign for Chair Professorships in AI was led by Neeraj Mendiratta and created buzz among his batch mates across the globe with around hundred alumni having donated close to Rs 75 Lakh, an IIT KGP statement said.Of the total amount, a sum of Rs 36 Lakh will be contributed towards the Ajay Kumar Singh Chair Professorships in AI and the remaining for endowment in the name of the batch. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedThe alumni are aiming to reach Rs 50 Lakh figure for the endowment which will give them a classroom at IIT KGP named after their batch.Dean of Alumni Affairs, Prof. Subrata Chattopadhyay said, “I am overwhelmed with the initiative of IIT KGP alumni to give back to their alma mater. We just need to create avenues which the alumni would find worthwhile and beneficial for country and they would generously contribute towards it.” The Chair Professorships will be for two years duration for existing and new teachers including visiting and adjunct faculty in Artificial Intelligence starting from academic year 2018-19. The support will be in the form of a top-up salary which will be Rs 25,000 every month.”We, the batch mates of Ajay, fondly remember him as a braveheart . We wanted to commemorate his name in association with an initiative like excellence in teaching and research in the area of machine learning which can do wonders for India,” batch mate Paresh Krishnakant Joshi said.He expressed hope that through this initiative, IIT KGP would be able to promote AI teaching and in a way that it could be simplified and mass marketed.AI and Machine Learning has become the next big thing in the 21st century impacting healthcare, electronics and communication, space technology, transport, automobiles and even home appliances.last_img read more

first_img 2 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. UPDATE: The launch has been postponed — again. SpaceX says it is now scheduled for Wednesday, February 11, at 6:03 p.m. ET.Trailblazing tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has something to prove. Earlier this month, Musk’s SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket and attempted to land it on a floating platform in the Atlantic ocean. The 14-story-tall rocket took off without a hitch, but it botched its landing, bouncing off the deck of the barge.”Close, but no cigar,” is how Musk described the failed landing. And for any entrepreneur worth his salt, “close” simply isn’t good enough.SpaceX will try again today. At 6:10 p.m. EST, a new Falcon 9 rocket will lift off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Like last time, the rocket will soar up into space, then use GPS tracking to land itself smoothly on the platform.In case you’re not familiar, SpaceX is a company Musk founded in 2002 to “revolutionize space technology, with the ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets.”Related: Google, Fidelity Invest $1 Billion in SpaceX to Spread Internet Access Across the GlobeIn addition to launching and hopefully landing the rocket, it will carry the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) “Deep Space Climate Observatory.” The instrument will detach once the pair reach space. It will be used to monitor solar winds generated by the sun that can cause disruption of telecommunications and GPS on Earth.You can watch the launch event right here at 6:10 p.m.:Related: Elon Musk to Build ‘Hyperloop’ Track, Likely in Texas Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globalcenter_img Register Now » February 8, 2015last_img read more

Data from left and right anterior thalamic radiation (ATR) were averaged. Image courtesy of C. Bouziane et al. November 4, 2015 — The mammography detection rate of an early-stage but potentially invasive type of breast cancer rises with age, according to a large new study from Germany published online in the journal Radiology.Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), a type of breast cancer confined to the milk ducts, is a common finding on mammography. DCIS treatment, usually in the form of surgery and radiation therapy, is controversial because some types of screening-detected DCIS may never progress to become clinically symptomatic during the patient’s remaining lifetime, and treatment can result in significant costs and potential complications for the patient.DCIS is graded based on how the cancer cells from biopsy samples look under the microscope. While high-grade, intermediate-grade and low-grade DCIS can all develop into invasive cancer if left untreated, high-grade DCIS develops faster and becomes a more aggressive, invasive cancer. Research has shown that the interval between DCIS detection and the occurrence of invasive cancer averages five years in high-grade cases.For the retrospective study, researchers divided 733,905 women aged 50 to 69 years participating for the first time in a screening program into five-year age groups. The researchers then determined DCIS detection rates for distinguishing high-grade, intermediate-grade and low-grade DCIS.Of the 733,905 women, 989, or 1.35 percent, had graded DCIS diagnosis, including 419 with high-grade DCIS, 388 with intermediate-grade DCIS and 182 with low-grade DCIS.Total DCIS detection rates increased with age, mostly due to a rise of high- and intermediate-grade DCIS.”The detection rate of high-grade DCIS in our collective showed a statistically significant increase with age, with a maximum rate at the oldest assessed age group of 65 to 69 years,” said the study’s lead author, Stefanie Weigel, M.D., from the University Hospital Muenster in Muenster, Germany.The findings underscore the need for more research on the effectiveness of standard DCIS therapy in women older than age 60, a group for which there are scant data, according to Weigel. The possibility of DCIS-related overdiagnosis must be balanced against the robust evidence that high-grade DCIS is more likely to recur and to progress to invasive carcinoma, she said.”Adequate therapy of non-symptomatic high-grade DCIS detected at screening needs further evaluation, as there is the chance to prevent aggressive invasive breast cancer, which could be life-threatening even in older age groups,” Weigel said. “In terms of overdiagnosis and overtreatment, there is need for more detailed prognostic characterization of DCIS lesions and weighting them in the context of age.”The results also provide more information to consider in the debate over screening in older women. The American Cancer Society advises women to get annual screening for as long as they are healthy, while the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends women stop annual screening at age 74. The USPSTF based its decision on a lack of evidence to assess the benefits and harms of screening mammography in women ages 75 and older.”The discussion about upper age limits and minimal intervals in mammography screening should be focused on effectiveness of detection of invasive cancers,” Weigel said.For more information: http://pubs.rsna.org/journal/radiology FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | Colonoscopy Systems | August 06, 2019 Rise in Early Onset Colorectal Cancer Not Aligned With Screening Trends A new study finds that trends in colonoscopy rates did not fully align with the increase in colorectal cancer (CRC) in… read more last_img read more

ACOSOG is now part of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology.A multi-center phase II trial, ACOSOG Z1071 evaluated the false negative rate of sentinel lymph node (SLN) surgery after NAC (chemotherapy delivered prior to treatment to shrink the tumor) in 701 breast cancer patients with initial node-positive disease who met all eligibility requirements; all eligible patients also underwent SLN surgery followed by completion axillary lymph node dissection (ALND). Six hundred eighty-five (685) patients enrolled in Z1071 were eligible for the current analysis, which sought to evaluate the variability of practice patterns following NAC.The study, “Patterns of Local-Regional Management Following Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy in Breast Cancer: Results From ACOSOG Z1071 (Alliance),” was published in the March edition of International Journal of Radiation Oncology • Biology • Physics (Red Journal). Study authors focused primarily on surgical approaches, use of reconstruction after mastectomy, and use of post-mastectomy and regional nodal irradiation, nodal status and response to NAC.After receiving chemotherapy, 401 (58.5 percent) patients remained node-positive while 284 (41.5 percent) changed to node-negative. Of 401 node-positive patients, mastectomy was performed in 148 (36.9 percent), mastectomy with immediate reconstruction in 107 (26.7 percent) and breast-conserving surgery (BCS) in 146 patients (36.4 percent). In women undergoing reconstruction, bilateral mastectomy rates were higher than in those who did not have reconstruction (66.5 percent versus 32.2 percent, respectively, P<.0001).Most patients received RT, regardless of the surgical treatment of the primary tumor following NAC. Post-mastectomy RT was more frequently omitted after reconstruction than mastectomy (23.9 percent vs 12.1 percent, respectively, P=.002) and was omitted in 19 of 107 patients (17.8 percent) with residual node-positive disease in the reconstruction group.The use of internal mammary RT was low, between 7.8 percent and 11.2 percent, and did not differ with surgical approaches. The rate for supraclavicular RT ranged from 46.6 percent to 52.2 percent, and was omitted in 193 node-positive patients (47.3 percent). Some of the observed variations reflect ongoing unresolved controversies in the field of radiation therapy.In patients who converted to node-negative following NAC, and were treated with breast conserving surgery and radiation, regional nodal radiation was employed in approximately half the patients and omitted in half, reflecting the need for more guidance, an issue that is currently being addressed in a randomized national trial, NRG-B51.“Patient and physician treatment decisions have been impacted by the increasing use of NAC,” said Bruce G. Haffty, M.D., interim director Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and department chair of Radiation Oncology, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Brunswick, New Jersey, lead author of the study. Haffty is also immediate past chair of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). “This study revealed wide variability in practice, particularly regarding administration of radiation therapy and field design following NAC and surgery for breast cancer.”“Discussion and collaboration among all of the members of a multidisciplinary team of medical oncologists, surgical oncologists and radiation oncologists is important for optimal management,” Haffty said. “Patients should be made aware that there are various approaches to local-regional management of breast cancer after neoadjuvant systemic therapy.”“The study also emphasizes the importance of the ongoing national clinical trials regarding local-regional management of breast cancer after NAC,” he said. “Specifically, the NRG B51 trial and the Alliance A011202 trial both address important aspects of local-regional treatment and will help to provide guidance on how to best approach local-regional management after neoadjuvant chemotherapy.”For more information: www.redjournal.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more

first_imgNo related posts. NEW YORK — What is the true practical use of a breakup book? When an important relationship ends, you imagine you are in a completely singular situation, that no one else has endured quite the exact exquisitely painful situation that you are currently muddling through. You intuitively believe that your feelings are unique, sui generis, but it is somehow reassuring or uplifting to stumble on evidence that they are not. The pleasure of listening to certain songs or reading certain books is that, after an obligatory and useful period of disorienting isolation, they welcome you back into the human circle. It is oddly reassuring to see that you are not unique, i.e., alone, that this same tragedy has befallen other people, and they have mysteriously survived. (As Shakespeare put it: “Men have died from time to time, and worms have eaten them, but not from love.”)What follows is my list of the three all-time best breakup books:“In Love,” by Alfred HayesThe New York Review of Books is reissuing this lost masterpiece of breakup literature, originally published in 1953, and when I came across it, I thought to myself, “How have I made it this far in life without reading this book?” A man who read it said to me, “It’s great isn’t it? I’ll never date again.” Both of which seem to me completely reasonable responses to “In Love.” It’s a ruthlessly observant novel with heart-stoppingly good sentences. (It’s impossible not to be seduced by passages like: “The only thing we haven’t lost, I thought, is the ability to suffer. We’re fine at suffering. But it’s such noiseless suffering. We never disturb the neighbors with it. We collapse, but we collapse in the most disciplined way. That’s us. That’s certainly us. The disciplined collapsers.”)The whole book is the moody monologue of a man sitting at a bar telling a woman about a bruising affair that has haunted him. (One of the clever and elegant things about it is that the elegy for the lost affair is also the preamble for a new one; it’s both a fierce indictment of love and the chatting up of a pretty woman.) In the affair that obsesses the man, he was evasive, uncommitted, ironic. But when the woman in question runs off with a rich man and marries him, he is lost: “It was becoming painful to think. There seemed to be inside me whole areas I had to be careful of. I could feel my mind, like a paw, wince away from certain sharp recollections. I contained, evidently, a number of wounded ideas.”Hayes’ description of a failed trip the two lovers took to the Jersey Shore is one of the greatest scenes of romantic alienation ever written. He pinpoints the desperate desire for love and the recognition that it is slipping away with magnificent precision: It is one of the most confusing states two people can encounter, and to see it rendered in words is rare and lovely.“Light Years,” by James SalterIn this painfully beautiful book, Salter somehow manages to capture the lushness of a thriving marriage and its simultaneous decline. (“Life is weather. Life is meals. Lunches on a blue checked cloth on which salt has spilled. The smell of tobacco. Brie, yellow apples, wood-handled knives.”) He conjures the gorgeousness of daily life, the rhythms of love, of a worn and comfortable familiarity along with the wordless restlessness, the growing discontents. (” . . . and he reads to them, as he does every night, as if watering them, as if turning the earth at their feet.”) Somehow we see in this elaborately complex portrait of domestic life both the greatness and transcendent possibility of family, and the crashing insufficiency of it, which is an astonishing, nearly impossible literary feat. The book is ultimately about how happiness and restlessness collide, about the ends entwined in beginnings, the imperceptible changes of heart, the nascent elegies embedded in our warmest, safest, happiest moments. If the real question we want answered in breakup novels is how a vivid, pressing love fades, this book comes closer than any other I have ever read to answering it.“The End of the Affair,” by Graham GreeneIn this classic of the genre, Greene captures the mood of natural malice that occurs post-love: “This is a record of hate far more than of love,” he writes. His main character, Bendrix, is not afraid to express his untrammeled rage for his ex-flame: “Nothing would have delighted me more than to hear that she was sick, unhappy, dying.”The novel, like all of Greene’s, mingles a perfectly crafted story with existential musing. His mistress writes in her journal: “Sometimes after a day when we have made love many times, I wonder whether it isn’t possible to come to an end of sex, and know that he is wondering too and is afraid of that point where the desert begins. What do we do in the desert if we lose each other? How does one go on living after that?”Here as elsewhere, Greene takes as his subject the mysteries of sexual involvement: “The act of sex may be nothing, but when you reach my age you learn that at any time it may prove to be everything.”Other great breakup literature, should one need more, would include several stories from John Updike’s “Licks of Love,” Richard Ford’s “Independence Day,” certain poems of Robert Lowell’s, and the first dazzlingly ironic chapter of Mary McCarthy’s “The Company She Keeps.”—Roiphe, a journalism professor at New York University, is the author most recently of “Uncommon Arrangements: Seven Marriages” and “In Praise of Messy Lives.”© 2013, The Washington Post Facebook Commentslast_img read more

first_img FILE – In this March 11, 2017 file photo, Dax Shepard poses for a portrait -in West Hollywood, Calif. Shepard hosts a podcast called “Armchair Expert.” (Photo by Ron Eshel/Invision/AP, File) by Alicia Rancilio, The Associated Press Posted Jul 18, 2018 9:40 am PDT Last Updated Jul 18, 2018 at 10:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Dax Shepard acts, writes and directs but his latest creative venture is fulfilling him in ways he didn’t expect. He’s begun recording podcasts called “Armchair Expert” in a guest house attic on property he owns with his wife, Kristen Bell. New episodes drop Mondays.Shepard said his experience as a guest on other podcasts including “WTF with Marc Maron,” ”The Nerdist” and “Off Camera with Sam Jones” sparked the idea of starting his own.“I just really enjoyed being able to talk for an hour or two hours and not be confined to an 8-minute produced segment on a talk show,” he said. “We were able to veer off into much more profound or personal topics. And you felt like you had the time to give some context to your opinions.”Shepard’s first episode was with Bell on a day when they were bickering. (They’re a popular Hollywood pair, appearing in commercials together.) He’s since added conversations with other celebs including Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Kimmel and has branched out to experts of their fields, like a clinical psychologist who can talk about parenting strategies.He describes that particular interview as his “most stimulating” so far and aims to speak with more “intellectuals, experts, doctors and psychologists.” His wish-list for guests is “never-ending” and the multi-hyphenate performer Donald Glover is ranked No. 1.Two episodes that also stand out are with Shepard’s mother, Laura Labo, and actress Erika Christensen. Labo has had an interesting life and was candid about overcoming toxic and abusive past relationships and with loss, after the recent death of her husband. Shepard managed to keep the conversation moving but not interject too many of his own memories into Labo’s story, which would be easy to do since he was there for much of it.Christensen and Shepard played siblings for six seasons on NBC’s “Parenthood.” Besides a familiar rapport, the two had a respectful conversation about Scientology (she is a member).“There’s so many topics in our culture that seem to be binary where you have to pick one side or the other and Scientology certainly seems to be one of those,” said Shepard. “I’ve certainly heard the side (against it), so I think it’s required of me to hear the other perspective.”In his podcast, Shepard frequently refers to his own addiction to drugs and alcohol (he’s now in recovery) and says “to create some equanimity, it’s required of me to share something that’s very vulnerable” to get others to feel they can do the same. He says he’s especially interested in people’s struggles and setbacks and what they’ve learned.“Armchair Expert” also has a sidekick and co-producer named Monica Padman. She fact-checks him at the end of every episode.“I’m a white male and it’s important for me to get checked regularly from a female perspective and a person of colour’s perspective.

black blob depicts average melanosome shape and scale bar represents 1 micrometer) Dinosaurs that sported simple filaments known as “dinofuzz” also had ovoid melanosomes the team found But in a group called maniraptoran dinosaurs (which sported modern-style feathers like today’s birds) melanosomes often had a wide variety of shapes including the vastly elongated structures seen at lower right (from the fossils of a yet-to-be-described bird [lower left]) the researchers report today in Nature Implications of the finding aren’t yet clear the researchers say However because a wide variety of melanosome shapes is seen today only in warm-blooded creatures such as birds and mammals the burst of melanosome diversity among early maniraptoran dinosaurs may chronicle the point at which several critical biological characteristics in the lineage fundamentally changed including the shift toward warm-bloodedness That boost in metabolism plus associated changes in reproduction and feeding habits may have set the stage for avian success See more ScienceShots A 1998 paper linking autism to vaccines which set off a panic about childhood vaccination that continues today was based on data falsification according to an investigation by a journalist at the British Medical Journal (BMJ) who has spent years examining the original research In a harsh editorial that calls the paper "fraudulent" BMJ editors recommend that other publications by the senior author gastroenterologist Andrew Wakefield be scrutinized because "past experience tells us that research misconduct is rarely isolated behaviour" The investigation by journalist Brian Deer focuses on alleged alterations of medical records for the 12 children in the study Among other things it charges that preexisting symptoms the children had were "played down" to build a case that they’d had a serious reaction to the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine Medical "records cannot be reconciled with what was published" in The Lancet the journal where the study appeared Deer writes in what’s billed as the first in a series in BMJ His report is another strike against the already-retracted research which was led by Wakefield A 2002 study failed to replicate the findings; the British General Medical Council spent 25 years investigating and a year ago concluded that Wakefield’s conduct was "dishonest" and "misleading" The Lancet retracted the paper and Wakefield lost his license to practice medicine in the United Kingdom While the latest allegations go even further it’s unclear what practical impact they’ll have An anti-vaccine activist who co-founded one of the most outspoken groups that links autism to vaccines Generation Rescue took to the airwaves of CNN yesterday when the BMJ investigation was released to defend the link and argue that other studies have reported one "To represent that the science has been done on this and we should move on is simply untrue" said JB Handley It looks as though for now little may changeNo scientific studies prove the value of the technology among patients with dementia or other seniors.

suggestion came up again in the 210th report of the Law Commission in 2008 a document concentrating solely on the decriminalisation of suicide This report did make references to the fact that persons committing suicide need sympathy care and treatment not punishment But neither report made a strong case for the rights of persons with mental illnesses continuing to describe them as having an incurable disease and deserving sympathy This is a rather outdated understanding of disability The disability rights movement has been arguing for an understanding that is not rooted in a medical or a “disease”-based model but in a social model that conceptualises disability as the disadvantages and exclusions faced by people because of social barriers and attitudes Mental health if seen through a medical model is completely surrounded by misunderstandings and negative stereotypes that result in stigma and discrimination against as well as isolation of people with mental illnesses and their families and carers The social model of disability urges us to look beyond the issues of medical treatment and disease to the identification of the social barriers that deny people with psycho-social disabilities the rights to employment education recreation and even citizenship This social model is the core of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities which has been signed and ratified by India That persons driven to commit suicide are more often than not facing mental health disorders and are in need of care and treatment was suggested in the new Mental Health Care Bill 2013 This bill provides that any person attempting to commit suicide should be assumed to be suffering from a mental illness and that it would be the duty of the government to provide him or her with adequate care treatment and rehabilitation The Supreme Court also considered suicide as a mental health concern in its judgment on euthanasia in Aruna Shanbaug vs Union of India in which it recognised that a person attempting suicide is in need of help rather than punishment and it recommended that Parliament consider the feasibility of deleting Section 309 So if the government really wants to ensure that the striking down of Section 309 has a significant impact then it must state unequivocally that this step is in recognition of the rights of persons with mental health disabilities who are driven to committing suicide and that they should not be further punished This could be a starting point for the government to take on and address the difficult issues surrounding mental health — the recognition of an individual’s right to receive adequate treatment and care providing better access to mental health services including mental health as an integral part of the right to health in government policy providing adequate funding to ensure access to healthcare and taking steps against mental health stigma and discrimination Finally the deletion of Section 309 could be the beginning of a series of other deletions of provisions scattered across various legislation that are harmful and discriminatory to persons with disabilities Without any of these steps to take it forward striking down Section 309 would be meaningless For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Los Angeles | Published: June 13 2017 12:25 pm Suits cast sat for

leaving him short of attacking options as the country gears up for a crunch World Cup qualifier with Uzbekistan on Thursday Lippi leads China into the must-win game in Wuhan lamenting his dwindling striking stocks after a period that has seen Chinese Super League clubs spend huge sums on overseas forwards “My team is progressing in two aspects: mentally and organisationally” the Italian World Cup winner told Titan Sports “We play to win no matter if we’re at home or away But we have one serious problem and it’s very very serious: I have no forward I have no centre forward at all “I have to move players from other positions to be a centre forward The reason is simple too: clubs can play three foreign players and they like buying forwards “We have good choices in other positions but it is a big problem with the forwards” China are bottom of their qualifying group for the World Cup finals in Russia next year but retain a slim chance of advancing to the playoffs should they defeat both Uzbekistan and Qatar and other results go their way The national team’s lowly status runs contrary to the growing profile and status of China’s burgeoning professional league where clubs have spent

He also said players have a say in selection of the coach – as claimed by Ramachandra Guha in his resignation letter from BCCI Committee of Administrators (CoA) – but their reasoning should be justified.“There have been instances where players have had their say and sometimes not had their say Let’s not cherry pick cases Maybe Kohli wanted Kumble too A player doesn’t get everything every time they ask – sometimes you do and sometimes you don’t That’s just part of team culture Sometimes they comply and sometimes they don’t In this case it is best to hear both sides of the story before making villians out of people” he said while speaking to IndianExpresscom Chopra further stated that the treatment meted out to Kumble was a bit unfair and could have been handled much better “It could have been handled much better As per Kumble’s statement he was informed of Kohli’s reservations only recently That leaves a sour taste in the mouth – that single factor He would feel slightly hard done by I do think he would have known about the rumours circulating though Had attempts been made to appease things earlier maybe the episode could have been done better It is understandable that a professional employment has to be created after the end of his contract” “For a coach and a team/captain the performance and inter-personal relationship both are important If one doesn’t work it is tough to continue” he added For way forward Chopra said the nationality of the coach doesn’t matter with some former players saying foreign coaches are brought in because they toe the line allowing players tobe as independent as possible – something Indian team had allegedly been affected by under Kumble “Nationality of coach doesn’t matter It is the credentials that matter Just take a look at what they bring to the table and discuss with team captain or the team to keep them in the loop If they have any reservation and the reasoning is just take that into account too Many players have played under different type of coaches and personalities It would be unfair to say that only ‘yes men’ survive He said rebuilding the trust between captain and coach is tough if the situation had

leg in the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday Cavani who has lost his place in the side in recent weeks latched onto a superb pass over Chelsea’s stretched defense from winger Angel Di Maria and slotted through the legs of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois from a narrow angle in the 78th minute "I’m happy for Eddy I’ve said it often because people doubt his scoring abilities but he’s always shown he can score goals" PSG coach Laurent Blanc said "He was going through a very difficult period and I hope that scoring this goal gives him his confidence back" Zlatan Ibrahimovic put PSG ahead with a powerful free-kick in the 39th minute only for Chelsea to level on the stroke of halftime with a rare goal from midfielder John Obi Mikel Edinson Cavani came off the bench to score the winner as PSG beat Chelsea AP Courtois made a string of saves to keep Chelsea in contention heading into the second leg and Spanish winger Pedro almost spoiled the home celebrations in injury time with a rasping drive into the side netting "This is a very strong PSG so I think the performance of our players was very good" Chelsea coach Guus Hiddink said "But we could have been more lethal in the four or five counters that we made" PSG is unbeaten in domestic competition since March and in all competitions since a 1-0 reverse away to Real Madrid in the group stage on 3 November— a run of 23 games Still Blanc’s side could regret a host of missed chances and Chelsea will fancy its chances at Stamford Bridge in three weeks’ time "It’s up to us to go and score at Stamford Bridge we will get chances and we must take them" Blanc said Chelsea knocked out PSG in the quarterfinals two years ago and PSG won when they met at the same stage last season — with both ties settled on away goals PSG’s preparations for the match were rocked by a scandal involving right back Serge Aurier who was suspended by the club for insulting Blanc and some teammates in an expletive-filled online video But Blanc’s side came out with plenty of energy with midfielder Marco Verratti forcing a save from Courtois and Brazilian winger Lucas shooting wide Chelsea’s makeshift defense — missing injured center-halves John Terry and Kurt Zouma — was often caught in two minds whether to sit back or push up on their opponents Thankfully for the visitors left back Cesar Azpilicueta cut out Di Maria’s defense-splitting pass to Lucas as he was breaking into the area But the visitors almost took a shock lead in the 23rd only for PSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp to brilliantly push Diego Costa’s header onto the crossbar following left back Abdul Baba Rahman’s drifting cross PSG attacked next but Ibrahimovic — having done well to peel off his marker — delivered a poor downward header that startled Courtois only because it was so weak Di Maria wasted another opportunity but the breakthrough came after Lucas was fouled by Mikel some 25 meters out and Ibrahimovic’s powerful free-kick clipped Mikel’s leg and wrong-footed Courtois Ibrahimovic’s intense joy at scoring was understandable too given that he was harshly sent off during the first half in the second leg last season But PSG’s defense so rarely tested in the French league paid the price for poor marking when Costa rose brilliantly above Ibrahimovic to flick on a corner the ball fell to Mikel and he blasted past Trapp "I think the big regret tonight is conceding this goal right on halftime" Blanc said "I was quite angry about that We gave the ball away four or five times before their goal" While Ibrahimovic scores for fun it was Mikel’s seventh goal in 361 career club appearances Chelsea’s gleeful support chanted "You’re not singing anymore" and from the restart Chelsea could have scored again when Willian played in Costa But he opened his foot too much allowing Trapp to guess the angle of his shot Courtois was much busier stopping efforts from Di Maria and Ibrahimovic and unlocking his giant frame to superbly palm away Di Maria’s curling shot But Cavani pounced to hand Hiddink his first defeat since replacing Jose Mourinho in mid-December "Of course a defeat is never a good or nice feeling but scoring away is always good" Hiddink said "We are still in the race" Benfica edges Zenit 1-0 with late goal Benficas Andre Almeida fights for the ball against Zenit’s Oleg Shatov AP Jonas scored in added time to give Benfica a dramatic 1-0 win over 10-man Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League on Tuesday heading home a free kick awarded after Domenico Criscito was shown a red card for the visitors Brazilian striker Jonas Benfica’s and the Portuguese league’s top scorer netted for the 26th time this season with a glancing header from a free kick in 91st minute That was awarded after Criscito picked up his second yellow card of the game for a foul on Andre Almeida Neither team really shone in the first leg last 16 game at the Stadium of Light in Lisbon though the win spared Benfica what looked likely to be a goalless draw and a tough time in Russia Zenit despite not playing an official game since December due to its domestic league’s winter layoff produced a confident performance to keep Benfica at bay for 90 minutes Zenit’s Portuguese coach Andre Villas-Boas rued what he saw as a missed chance to return to Russia with a blank scoresheet "We’ll need to create more chances than today" he said "We held on well . We weren’t as good in the second half" "It was a fair result" Benfica coach Rui Vitoria said "We wanted a bigger win but we didn’t concede a goal and that’s important" Benfica is looking to advance from the last 16 for the first time in four years while Zenit is pursuing its first quarterfinal appearance Benfica had most of the possession but Argentine playmaker Nicolas Gaitan’s neat footwork went nowhere against the visitor’s composed defense With Hulk tightly marked Zenit turned to Danny’s pace to try and break through without success Benfica looked dangerous in the 18th as Almeida broke down the right but when he turned the ball inside Pizzi hesitated before attempting a weak chip over goalkeeper Yuri Lodygin At the other end Axel Witsel produced a low shot in the 52nd shot that forced Benfica keeper Julio Cesar to dive quickly down to his right With 20 minutes to go Gaitan beat two defenders before blasting the ball against Lodygin from short range Just as the match looked destined to finish in deadlock Jonas rose to give Benfica a valuable lead for the second leg in three weeks’ time With inputs from AP Berlin: German chancellor Angela Merkel announced her intention to seek an end to EU membership talks with Turkey during her sole face-to-face TV showdown with challenger Martin Schulz on Sunday putting ties with Ankara centre-stage in Germany’s election campaign In a sharp escalation of an already intensifying diplomatic crisis between two NATO allies with longstanding historical links Merkel said: "It is clear that Turkey should not become a member of the European Union" She said she will discuss with EU counterparts to see if "we can end these membership talks" adding that "I don’t see (Turkey) ever joining and I had never believed that it would happen" Germany will also look at imposing "real restrictions on economic contact" with Turkey as well as possibly issuing a tougher travel warning against travel to the country she said File image of German chancellor Angela Merkel AP Merkel’s tough line comes after Ankara arrested two more German nationals for "political reasons" according to Berlin The plunge in bilateral relations began after Germany sharply criticised Ankara over the crackdown that followed 2016’s failed coup attempt there The escalating tensions have split the Turkish community in Europe’s top economy the largest Turkish diaspora abroad which is a legacy of Germany’s "guest worker" programme of the 1960s and 70s Merkel’s strong stance against Turkey appeared to steal the show from Schulz who had minutes earlier called for an end to the EU membership talks Polls published after the televised debate put the chancellor ahead in the crucial clash Merkel ahead in polls Merkel’s CDU party and their Bavarian CSU allies are commanding a strong 17-percentage point lead over the SPD ahead of the 24 September polls But with almost half the voters still undecided three weeks before the elections the straight-talking Schulz had been pinning his hopes on the prime-time TV showdown hoping to sway millions to his cause and halt a devastating popularity slide A former European Parliament chief Schulz enjoyed a surge in support shortly after taking the helm of the SPD in January only to see that initial excitement fade away But two separate surveys conducted after the debate put Merkel ahead with 55 percent saying in the ARD poll that she was more convincing compared to just 35 percent for Schulz A ZDF survey was closer but still had Merkel ahead with 32 percent against 29 percent who thought Schulz performed better During their 90-minute debate four seasoned TV presenters tossed wide-ranging questions to the two top politicians ranging from Germany’s migration crisis to relations with US President Donald Trump to pensions Schulz who had previously complained that Merkel was lulling voters to sleep with her refusal to engage in combative debate went on the offensive quickly On the hot-button topic of migration he accused Merkel of failing to coordinate plans with EU neighbours when she decided to open Germany’s borders in 2015 to allow in refugees many from war-torn Syria and Iraq But Merkel countered that: "In the life of a chancellor there comes a time when you have to make a quick decision" Recounting the situation when hundreds of thousands of refugees were blocked at the Hungarian border she said she "had no hope that (Hungarian prime minister) Viktor Orban would change his mind" over his tough stance against refugees Given a minute for a closing speech at the end of the debate Merkel turned back to her now-infamous slogan "we’ll manage this" that had marked the refugee crisis "I believe that we will manage this together" she told viewers as she asked them for their support

Pakistan cricket in past few years has survived without playing India and it will continue to survive in case the BCCI backs out of the series slated to be held in the UAE in December The PCB and BCCI has signed an MoU to play six series between 2015 and 2023 However PCB is yet to get the Indian board’s response on its letter last week asking them to honour the ‘binding agreement’ Asked whether he sees the arch-rivals resuming on field ties in December Khan gave a brisk reply File picture of Shahryar Khan AFP "Well it depends on your government Your board has signed an agreement with us that we will play in December They said we will have to get permission from the government We have written to the BCCI asking them honour the agreement We are not running after them We are just saying you have signed something so please honour your signature" the former diplomat told PTI The PCB has often been criticised at home for reaching out to BCCI time and again for resumption of ties The great Javed Miandad went on to say that PCB must not play India at the cost of self-respect Reiterating that politics and sports should not be mixed Khan made it clear that Pakistan will survive irrespective of the future of the high-voltage series "Suppose for political reasons the Indian government decides against playing Pakistan it doesn’t mean we will go bankrupt We will survive If we have survived without India-Pakistan cricket for the last so many years we will continue to survive Yes it will be a setback but that is about it" said the 81-year-old candidly Like in the past the Indian government will have a final say on the popular matter but going by the recent tweet of BCCI secretary and BJP MP Anurag Thakur it doesn’t make the fans on either of the side of border any more hopeful "We have nothing to do with Dawood Ibrahim Our government has made it clear time and again that he is not in Pakistan It is a part of political ups and downs Cricket is one way we can build up better relations" said Khan when asked about Thakur’s controversial tweet last month "Dawood in Karachi NSA wants to meet separatists here Are you really serious about peace and you expect we’ll play cricket with you" Thakur had posted Khan said that there can’t be a deadline on Indo-Pak cricketing matters as most decisions are taken in 11th hour but he is hoping for a positive response from BCCI and the Indian government "The Pakistan government is in favour of cricketing ties with India It is time for the Indian government to take a stand "Politics and cricket should be kept aside There will

when do they matter? To that endI propose for consideration three questions regarding the electoral impact of economic policies Firstare voters even aware of the policy in question This is not a trivial pointas public debates over policies often assume most Indians are fully informed about them On the contrarya study by Lokniti found 40 per cent of the rural poor were not even aware of the existence of NREGA in 2009despite considerable effort to publicise the schemeand nearly 50 per cent of Dalits in UP were unaware of the BSPs cash handout scheme in 2012 Seconddo voters clearly perceive the impacts of proposed policies Policies that visibly affect individual voterseither positively or negativelyare more likely to affect electoral outcomes Public opinion data from the 2009 elections found widespread opposition to reducing the number of government jobsbut more diffuse opinions on trade liberalisation Such variations may reflect differences in voter understanding of the costs and benefits of each measure In the current debatewe would do well to distinguish between policies that have a clear impact on household pocketbookssuch as the diesel price hike or the cooking gas subsidy cuts and those that do notsuch as expanding foreign investment in aviation or restructuring bank debt Finallywell-known policies with clear impacts may not register electorally if voters remain unclear about whom to credit or blame Such clarity of responsibility is muddied by Indias multi-tiered federal structure and complicated coalitions Should voters attribute a specific policy to a local politician who publicises ita state government that implements itor a national government that funds it For examplethe recent reforms let individual states decide if they want to allow foreign investment in multibrand retailmaking policy attribution difficult In contrastvoters may more clearly ascribe the diesel price hike to the central government These questions are just starting points and answers will vary between statesand even across the support bases of different parties But if we are to better understand the relationship between policiespublic opinionand elections in Indiawe need to pursue such answers The importance of these efforts should be only too clear in a context in which the figure of the aam aadmi is repeatedly invoked by champions and critics of major shifts in policy without actual reference to what such a figure knows or thinks The writer is assistant professor of political science and South Asian studies at Yale University express@expressindia For all the latest Opinion
