Internal gravity waves are frequently observed in stably stratified regions of the atmospheric boundary layer. In order to determine the statistical influence of such waves on the dynamics of the boundary layer it is necessary to compile information concerning properties of the waves such as frequency of occurrence, propagation, and spectral characteristics. Gravity wave climatologies have been compiled from relatively few locations. In this paper a climatological study of gravity waves, in the period range 1-20 min, propagating in the stably stratified atmospheric boundary layer overlying an Antarctic ice shelf is presented. An extensive set of boundary layer measurements were compiled throughout 1991. Surface pressure fluctuations were recorded from a spatial array of six sensitive microbarographs. Wind and temperature records from an instrumented mast were also available. A beam-steering technique has been used to determine wave parameters from the surface pressure data. The microbarographs detected the presence of internal gravity waves throughout the observational campaign. Root-mean-square pressure values were typically in the region 16-40 mu b, but a significant number of isolated events with amplitudes of up to 180 mu b were also found. Wave properties have been studied in conjunction with the mean wind and temperature profiles in the boundary layer. It was found that most of the wave activity did not originate locally, but from shear layers aloft, or, more commonly, from the katabatic how regime where the ice shelf joins the Antarctic continent.

By Wayne McLaurinUniversity of GeorgiaAs Father’s Day approaches, I remember with fond affection my ownfather. He wasn’t a big man, but was very big in my eyes. Noteducated in a modern sense, he never failed to have time toanswer my thousand questions. He was never too busy to talk to uschildren.Many of the conversations came in the garden, started by aquestion.”What plant is that?””Is this bug good or bad?””Is that ready to eat?””Why are some peppers hot?””What causes tomatoes to turn red?””How big can a watermelon grow?””Can we quit now?”Railroad gardenWe always had a big vegetable garden on land we used with permission from the railroad.At 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. a passenger train passed by going toforeign places as far as we were concerned — northbound toWashington, D.C., and New York and southbound to New Orleans.We knew we weren’t going there, so we just waved at the people onthe train and showed them Southern hospitality while we wentabout our chores.Everyone had chores in the garden. One of my least favorite wasto pick squash and okra — both sticky. I was the fifth child,and now I think this chore was passed down as the older ones gotmore power and control.Okra lessonsLittle did I know then that I’d wind up getting a Ph.D. inhorticulture at Louisiana State University and do all of myresearch on okra. I reckon that garden got me geared up for life.Daddy never was into “gadgets.” We didn’t have a tractor or evena mule, just hand tools and a pushplow.Having come through World War I and the Depression and having sixchildren to support, Daddy was somewhat tight-fisted. Why haveone of those gadgets when Mr. John Scott would come over and plowthe garden with his mule Hugh?Besides the chores, we did everything else that was asked. Daddyalways asked. He never told us what to do. Of course, we neverrefused to do what he asked.That one time…Except there was that one time when my older brother V.L. decidedif he stuck his foot with a pitchfork he could get out of work –we always worked barefooted. Instead, he stuck it through his toe.Daddy took him back to the house, poured iodine on the puncture,bandaged it and made him wear shoes back to the garden. All of uslearned a lesson: don’t try it, because it won’t get you out ofgarden work.We didn’t have any of the supplies modern gardeners can’t seem todo without. We knocked pests off the plants into a coffee canwith a little kerosene in the bottom. After we were through, westrained the bugs out and saved the kerosene for the nextonslaught of insects.Specialized hoesWeed control was never a problem. We just used hoes and kept themsharpened. As the hoe heads were sharpened, of course, theybecame smaller.That was never a problem. We used the small-headed hoe to getclose around the plant. With this implement I could get rightnext to the stem and cut the grass.Woe be unto the kid, though, who cut a plant. We’d get “Son, whydidn’t you just pull the grass from around the plant with yourhands?” in the kindest of words.The newer, wider hoes were for the middles. And we never chopped.We “drew” the hoe along the top of the soil without disturbingthe soil, letting the sharp edge do the work. Chopping brought upweed seeds, the exact thing we were trying to control.Lots of lessonsWe not only planted and raised each vegetable but picked it,shelled it, helped cook it and, of course, ate everything. Theplate was never passed twice, and no one wanted to be at the end.Yet there was always enough to eat and share with others lessfortunate (or as we kids so selfishly saw it, too lazy to have agarden).As I look back, gardening with my father was one of the bestlearning experiences ever. All of the formal education I’ve gonethrough has only refined and enhanced what I learned in myfather’s garden.(Wayne McLaurin is a horticulturist with the University ofGeorgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)
Since 2007, The Honeycutters have been doing their part to continue the tradition and honesty of vintage country music. Never mind the swill you’ll hear all over modern country radio. Instead, for true country, point your ears towards this quintet based in the mountains of western North Carolina.Though a band in the truest sense of the word, The Honeycutters are undoubtedly led by singer/songwriter Amanda Anne Platt, whose talents can be wisely compared to the likes of Iris Dement and Emmylou Harris. A songwriter with an ear for charming melodies and a pen rich with subtle wit, Platt writes songs for The Honeycutters that rummage deeply into the country music saddle bag.The band recently released On The Ropes, their fourth long player and the follow up to last year’s critically acclaimed Me Oh My, which established the band as a burgeoning new voice in the world of Americana music.I recently chatted with singer Amanda Anne Platt about the new record, boxing, and Asheville’s best local honey.BRO – You recently celebrated the release of your new record with your hometown fans in Asheville. That had to feel good.AP – Yes, it did! We love playing at home, and it means a lot to see so many familiar faces in the audience.BRO – The band rolls into Bristol on Friday. That has to be a bit like going back to the wellspring. Any bands from the Bristol Sessions from which you draw particular inspiration?AP – It would be hard to pinpoint. I definitely fell in love with the Carter Family in my late teens and went through a phase of reading a lot of nonfiction about early country music. I think more than anything, the idea of people who had been making music on their front porches their whole lives getting recording contracts and becoming big stars without a bunch of grooming is what inspires me. The music that gave rise to the Americana genre started just like that. It was very true music. So it’s nice to have a slice of history so close to home.BRO – We are featuring the title track to the new record on this month’s Trail Mix. What’s the story behind the song?AP – “On The Ropes” doesn’t have a very interesting story behind it, I’m sorry to say. It’s a pick me up song, with a chorus that I started singing to myself when I was feeling discouraged. It kind of grew from there.BRO – I love the boxing imagery on the record packaging. Ever tempted to spend some time in the ring?AP – Yes, actually! I was thinking pretty seriously about signing up for lessons at the gym where we did the shoot. But I’m a wuss. I probably won’t follow through on that.BRO – Where’s the best place to grab some local honey the next time I am in Asheville?AP – There used to be a great little honey stand in Haw Creek called Haw Creek Honey. They just had this box where you put your money and then you took your honey. I think that people abused the system, though. I don’t believe that’s still there. But there’s always honey at the farmer’s market!Amanda Anne Platt and the rest of The Honeycutters will take to the stage at The Birthplace of Country Music Museum in Bristol, Virginia, this Friday. Trail Mix wants to give you an opportunity to win tickets to that show. Take a shot at the trivia question down below and email your answer to [email protected] A winner from all of the correct answers received by 5 PM on Thursday, June 9th, will win two tickets to the show!Be sure to check out The Honeycutters’ website for information on tour dates and how to get your copy of On The Ropes.

With Trump-appointed deregulators now in charge of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the specter of new regulations governing overdraft practices and fees has been lifted, at least temporarily.CFPB is at a fork in the road and less likely to further restrict credit union overdraft programs, at least in the immediate future, observes Brian Witt, senior partner in the Farleigh Wada Witt law firm, Portland, Ore.“They’re likely to put a freeze on any new regulations for the next six to nine months, until they see what the new director’s priorities are,” he says. “That should bring credit unions and banks short-term relief from any potential new regulation.”The threat of heavy-handed overdraft regulation by CFPB was receding even before an anti-regulation acting director took over, he notes; CFPB’s own research study showed little need for more restrictions. continue reading » 17SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
So, for the sake of argument, let us join Sunny and go into the Badlands, this post-apocalyptic world with vast meadows of roses. Early on, after effortlessly wiping out about a dozen dudes without breaking a sweat, Sunny rescues M.K. (Aramis Knight), a teenager he finds trapped in a chest. It turns out that M.K. can unlock a mysterious power of ass-kicking whenever he bleeds, making you ponder the consequences if he ever accidentally nicks himself. And so, on top of motorcycle-riding assassins armed with Japanese Samurai swords, we also have magical teenagers.The Badlands are also occupied by the sickly Baron Quinn (Marton Csokas, The Lord of the Rings), his eighth wife-to-be (Sarah Bolger), his jealous wife (Orla Brady), Sunny’s pregnant lover (Madelein Mantock), and primitive boys training to become cold, heartless Clippers–and follow in Sunny’s footsteps. Figuring out their names was less concerning than trying to understand why all this cliché drama littered the background of a show loosely based on “Journey to the West,” a 16th century Chinese novel.It all was so odd yet so familiar…Apparently, there was something about Sunny’s martial arts skills that piqued the interest of the Baron–who decided to put it to “good” use–and will supposedly keep us enthralled in the journey ahead.But after Sunny brings M.K. back with him inside the high-walled doors of The Fort, where Baron Quinn runs his adolescent training camp, the drama within turns silly and mundane, and the more obvious it becomes that Into the Badlands is nothing more than an excuse to watch Daniel Wu flex his well-oiled muscles.And then it hit me. After tons of dull dialogue, the closing shots flashed on-screen with the song, “Lead Me Home,” by Jamie N Commons. The tune turned a knob in my brain, opened a door, and flooded out memories dating back to February 2013.“Lead Me Home” also concluded an episode of The Walking Dead (“Clear”, season three), when the protagonist Rick Grimes parted ways with an unhinged underling, Morgan Jones, for the second time in the series.This is another post-apocalyptic world. Humans coping with everyday drama are simply trying to live their lives in an environment that won’t let them. It’s the same formula with a new skin. Even AMC’s promotional commercials of Sunny’s martial arts abilities had shot-by-shot similarities to Walking Dead’s Michonne, Daryl and Morgan’s katana slicing, kicking, and stick wielding against the oncoming zombies. The cable network labeled its Sunday double-bill, “Twice The Fight.”Was AMC trying to make another Walking Dead out of Into the Badlands? Sure, there were no zombies lumbering through the Badlands’ rose meadows, and the characters were a lot more settled in, but paralleling the two shows explained all the out-of-place drama.Each commercial break started with these words, “Coming up on Into the Badlands,” leaving viewers hanging with a suspenseful action scene, as though AMC knew the risk that many (myself included) might change the channel if their curiosity weren’t aroused. Almost 20 million viewers tuned in for The Walking Dead’s season six premiere in October, so it’s no surprise that AMC hopes to draw those numbers with the five remaining episodes of its new series before the show enters the real badlands of low ratings.And that might prove the match for a prized martial arts champion like Sunny no matter how many necks he snaps.(Photo credit: AMC) Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Following Sunday night’s zombie apocalypse as depicted by the latest episode of The Walking Dead, AMC presented badass martial arts mayhem with its season premiere of Into the Badlands.A lot of strange words with no context were tossed around–Clippers, barons, and the Colts–but swift sidestepping, bone snapping, and karate whooshing distracted the brain and glued the eyes to the screen.At least for a little while.Wearing “cool guy” sunglasses and riding a motorcycle in a blood-red trench coat, Sunny (Daniel Wu) hits the trail to brighten nomadic and hostile gangs’ days by snapping their wrists and impaling them with rusted skewers or wielding his ever shiny katana.Evidently, once upon a time, Sunny was one of the aforementioned Clippers, assassins who “just show up, kill people, and leave.” But beneath all his ink, which records each of his many kills (404 and counting), Sunny is supposedly just a nice guy who made a bad career move. Now he’s about to rewrite his job description, as we shall soon see.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for western Suffolk. According to the forecast, the East End could see 4-8 inches of snow, and western Suffolk 4-6 inches. There are no advisories active for Nassau County, which could see up to 3 inches of snow. Saturday is expected to be mostly cloudy with a high near 26 and wind chill values in the teens. The mercury will only plunge from there, with forecasters predicting wind chill temperatures in the single digits at night. Snow will develop Saturday morning and continue into the evening, forecasters said. It could cause snow-covered roads and reduced visibility of a mile or less, the NWS said. The agency urged drivers to use caution.The storm is currently navigating the south, where parts of at least nine states have active winter weather alerts. Meteorologists are warning of major travel days for drivers and airline passengers alike. This would be the most significant snowfall of the season on LI.Friday morning’s storm amounted to a dusting across most of the Island except for some eastern Suffolk communities that measured up to 4 inches of snow.The worst weather Long Islanders have had to contend with thus far has been frigid temperatures caused by arctic air flowing through the region.While there’s no snow in Sunday’s forecast (for now), below-freezing temperatures are expected. Maybe the Giants can warm our hearts with a big win against the Packers on Sunday.
Oct 17, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – A recent Associated Press (AP) report revealed that, in the name of preventing biological attacks, the United States has rules barring the exportation of vaccines for avian influenza, smallpox, yellow fever, and many other pathogens to five countries classified as sponsors of terrorism.Under Department of Commerce rules, vaccines for a long list of viruses, bacteria, and biological toxins cannot be exported to Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria unless they obtain a special export license, which can take weeks.Pandemic flu vaccines are not restricted under the rules. But the Department of Commerce confirmed that—as reported by the AP—Cuba, Iran, and Sudan are subject to a ban on pandemic flu vaccines as part of general US trade embargoes covering nearly all products. Those embargoes are based on “broader foreign policy reasons,” said Kevin Kurland, a spokesman for the department’s Bureau of Industry and Security.The list of pathogens subject to the rules includes many viruses, some of which are little known and some of which there is no vaccine for. Examples, besides those mentioned, are the viruses that cause dengue fever, Ebola fever, Marburg fever, Rift Valley fever, and monkeypox. A list of animal pathogens covered by the restrictions includes highly pathogenic avian flu viruses.Bacterial pathogens on the restricted list include anthrax and the microbes that cause tularemia and plague. Not on the list are the causes of common vaccine-preventable diseases, such as measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, and seasonal influenza.It can take up to 40 days for a country to obtain an export license for a restricted product, Kurland told CIDRAP News. But he said humanitarian needs are considered, and licenses can be granted much faster in emergencies.Rules go back to 1990sThe AP report said the restrictions were quietly established in the mid 1990s and were strengthened after the Sep 11, 2001, attacks and subsequent anthrax mailings. Officials from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were not even aware of the regulations until the AP asked about them, the story said.Disease and bioterrorism experts say there is little reason to think that exporting the vaccines would increase the risk of biological attacks, but a Commerce Department official quoted in the AP story defended them.”Legitimate public health and scientific research is not adversely affected by these controls,” Assistant Commerce Secretary Christopher Wall told the AP.Concerning avian flu vaccines for poultry in particular, Wall declined to explain what kind of threat they pose, but said there are valid reasons for taking steps to ensure they “do not fall into the wrong hands,” according to the story.In response to questions from CIDRAP News, Bill Hall, an HHS spokesman in Washington, DC, said HHS is not usually consulted about trade sanctions, even when they involve medical products. “The United States government currently requires a license for the export from the US of a wide range of goods, products, and services to Cuba, Iran, and Sudan as part of its overall foreign policy,” Hall commented by e-mail.”Although these licensing requirements cover exports of medical products such as human influenza vaccine, HHS is not routinely consulted on the foreign policy decisions to impose sanctions on exports of U.S. goods to state sponsors of terrorism, even including medical products such as vaccines.”In the meantime, HHS is working closely with the Department of Commerce and other government agencies to determine the most effective and humane actions the US government could take to help protect global public health, regardless of the nation or nations involved.”Vaccines into weapons?Scientists quoted in the AP report said the idea that vaccines could be used to make biological weapons makes little sense. Vaccines typically contain inactivated viruses or bacteria or pieces of a virus or bacterium, though some vaccines use live but weakened microbes. Smallpox vaccine contains live vaccinia virus, a less dangerous relative of the smallpox virus.Referring to avian flu vaccines, Ian Ramshaw, an immunology and biosecurity expert at Australian National University in Canberra, told the AP, “I can think of no scientific reason how a terrorist organization could use such a vaccine for malicious intent. I personally think it’s a rather silly attitude and the U.S. is probably going overboard as it has in the past with many of its bioterrorism initiatives.”Infectious disease expert Michael T. Osterholm, PhD, MPH, said he doesn’t see the logic behind the restrictions either. He is director of the University of Minnesota Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, which publishes CIDRAP News.”There really isn’t any reason that using the vaccine to create the agent would be a concern,” he said. “The only potential implication is if you had individuals working on [weaponizing] the agent, by vaccinating them you could protect them so they could work on it.”He observed that the idea of weaponizing the H5N1 avian flu virus, for example, is not a concern, since the virus does not easily infect humans or spread easily from person to person. The virus could be used as a weapon against poultry, “but that’s not about the vaccine,” he said. “So I don’t understand the logic about this at all.””Anywhere in the world you can reduce the potential for these diseases, we should do that,” Osterholm said.Kurland said countries subject to the restrictions can get export licenses fairly quickly in emergencies.”By executive order, the process for reviewing licenses can take up to 40 days, although this can be expedited in emergency situations,” he said via e-mail. “Humanitarian issues are considered in license applications. During recent hurricane relief efforts in Cuba, for example, license applications for such humanitarian efforts were processed in 4 days or less.”See also: Commerce Department regulations supplement listing pathogens whose vaccines are subject to export restrictions for countries classified as sponsors of terrorism (see pages 57-60, 70)http://www.access.gpo.gov/bis/ear/pdf/ccl1.pdf
The third summer of the festival with Rabac Open Air was full of great concerts, circus performances, interactive performances, top jazz, movies under the starry sky and many other events that flooded the streets of Rabac and Labin. During the 78 days of the festival, more than 18 performers changed at 19 different locations and through 200 different programs, and as many as 158 hours of music were played for over 30 visitors to the Rabac Open Air, which was held in Rabac for the third time this summer. Rabac / Poreč Open is an excellent example of quality content and an imperative for sustainable and quality development of the destination. Today in the modern age there is really no excuse to stagnate, everything is known and everything is available. Investing in events is not a cost but an investment If we want to have a good attendance and a good story, we must invest, ie invest money in quality content. Without content there is no story, no visitors and ultimately no interest. The goal is to offer quality products and services that visitors are willing to pay and consume, and of course the story of the event as the main motive for coming. The most important thing is to complete the whole story, both to the visitors and to the partners who are inside the festival through catering and other facilities. The event must be a win-win-win for everyone, because if only one element is missing, everything falls into the water. Based on an excellent and successful concept, Poreč Open Air (this year Poreč Open Air was visited by more than 63.000 visitors through 68 days of the festival, and at a total of 29 locations, a total of 231 performers realized 137 events), Valamar launched Rabac Open Air, exclusively because he had to offer his guests experiences and a quality program, not just the sun and the sea and great accommodation. These are guests who want and ask for more. They are looking for authentic, diverse and quality content in destinations. Valamar cannot wait for the destination to wake up, as it simply has to deliver value for the money it offers. And so the idea came to take their own destiny into their own hands. But instead of the destination pulling and leading the game, in Croatia we have the absurdity of hotel houses pulling and developing destinations. Of course, everyone in the destination must be part of one story, but still the development of the destination must be taken care of by the City and the Tourist Board as a kind of DMC company, and others follow them synergistically. Are we involved in development or is it just happening to us? Are we growing by inertia or are we still posting some strategic plan behind the whole story? Who deals with these processes? Do we measure the quality and reactions of tourists? We want growth, ok, and can that infrastructure grow and endure? What profile of tourists do we want at all and where do we see ourselves in 5,10 years? Do we even have enough parking spaces for all tourists? Etc.… a lot of questions, and that is why tourism is extremely complex because it is not one industry, but tourism connects vertically and horizontally all other industries that must function synergistically as a “Swiss watch”. And that is why the strategic and sustainable development of alpha and omega is in the development of tourism. “We are proud of the fact that more than 30.000 guests visited the festival and enjoyed 95 different entertainment events, which is almost twice as much content as the first festival edition in 2017. It is extremely important to offer visitors an additional experience of entertainment in the destination, so we at Valamar are happy to be able to realize a successful concept of a summer festival like this for the third year in a row. High attendance and interest of foreign guests and locals is the best confirmation of our work, and this time we want to announce that we have already begun preparations for the new edition of Rabac Open Air 2020. “, Pointed out Vlatka Ilečić Arklinić, Head of the Destination Management Department at Valamar Riviera. It is a skeleton and a great example that must be followed by all other destinations, because the motive for coming is not accommodation, but precisely the destination. And the concept of the sun and the sea has long since ceased to be sufficient or sustainable. This story opens up a lot of themes, but it also opens up a theme and values for money. We are constantly revolving around narratives of how expensive we are. It is not a question of prices, but of value for money. Do we give that value for money at the destination? People will pay something “more expensive” if they have a positive sense of value for money and if we deliver a unique experience to them. In tourism, the service is the alpha and omega, and if we want to go one step further, we must not only meet the expectations of tourists, but delight them above the level of expectations. The level of quality and service in the accommodation, at least when it comes to hotel accommodation is taken for granted, according to the categorization. That is the standard, which of course we have to keep up. It is the destination and quality content that plays a key role here and makes a difference. The key word of the tourist mosaic is strategic development. He is behind the whole story Valamar Riviera, as well as local project partners, the City of Labin, the Tourist Board of Labin-Rabac, the Tourist Board of the Istrian County and other partners, and the production and organization of the whole story is done by MPG, a longtime partner of Valamar. It is a skeleton and a great example that must be followed by all other destinations, because the motive for coming is not accommodation, but precisely the destination. And the concept of the sun and the sea has long since ceased to be sufficient or sustainable. Rabac Open Air (ROA) is an excellent quality and diverse content in the destination, exactly what we chronically lack in most of our destinations. Thus, various concerts, circus performances, animations, workshops, interactive performances, films under the starry sky and numerous other events that flooded the streets of Rabac and Labin were held as part of the ROA. It is important to emphasize that one did not go to one or a couple of strong and big concerts and that is it, but just the opposite. Hundreds of small quality programs have been realized, targeting various target groups or content done for each group of tourists. A smart decision because that is how the program was maintained in the period from June 15 to August 29, not a couple of days. To conclude, Rabac / Poreč Open Air is an excellent example and proof that quality content is imperative for destination development, and an excellent domestic example of how this is done in practice. How to develop a destination, here’s how! Synergy is needed, literally everyone in the destination, from small to large, because it is this tourist mosaic and all the subjects and participants make up the destination. The Rabac Open Air program again this year offered extremely rich content through four categories. Thus, visitors from the Special Events, Cinema and Theater, Street Music and Street Performance programs enjoyed entertainment in several locations from mid-June to the end of August. This is great proof that investing in events is not a cost but an investment. Excellent quality content was generated in the tourist destination, tourist consumption and the whole tourist story was completed. If we want to increase tourist consumption, have better quality guests, then it can certainly no longer offer only the sun and the sea. Quality, diverse and authentic content is imperative. In addition to the fact that through various facilities guests have something to do in the destination, in addition to swimming, we directly raise the overall satisfaction of tourists with the destination, as well as increase tourist spending, and thus the profile of guests. Not only in the financial context, but with targeted content, we target a specific target group that is attracted to the destination by active vacation, culture, entertainment, etc.… Of course, first and foremost we need to know which tourism product we build and for whom, our vision of development. strategic development of the destination, both through the offer, service, arrangement and contents. Photo: Valamar / Rabac Open Air Quality, diverse and authentic content is imperative The key word is strategic development A hotel or a hotel brand, no matter how strong, whether in financial, human resources or any other form, cannot develop a destination on its own. It simply does not make decisions outside its domain, and the destination is not a hotel, but the term destination refers to an entire space and all participants in it. The level of service can be phenomenal at the hotel, but if the destination is bad, everyone loses. As well as vice versa. “Attendance, which is growing from year to year, is proof that visitors really enjoy the attractive program and content of the festival. We have been working on the offer of the festival for a very long time and we are carefully designing what Rabac Open Air will offer to its guests. And in order for both the little ones and the big ones to be able to enjoy themselves equally, we have provided various events, such as concerts, theater performances, movie hits, socializing with favorite cartoon characters and much more. Rabac is one of the great examples of how a destination can develop through quality and fun content”, Said Ivana Biškupić, Project Manager of Rabac Open Air Festival from MPG.

Published on October 19, 2018 at 10:41 pm Contact KJ: [email protected] | @KJEdelman With 80 seconds left in overtime, Lindsay Eastwood scored her first goal of the season to give Syracuse (1-3, 1-2 College Hockey America) its first conference victory against Lindenwood (1-4, 0-1), 5-4, Friday in St. Charles, Missouri.SU recovered from a two-goal deficit with under 10 minutes left in the third period, netting three goals in a 2 minute and 7-second span. But the Orange lost their lead with less than four minutes left. Eastwood’s goal 3:20 into overtime helped SU avoid its worst CHA start since its inaugural season in 2008.Syracuse opened the game attacking with seven shots on goal in the first eight minutes, all of them saved by Lions’ goalie Jolene deBruyn. And when a Shelby Calof hooking penalty gave Lindenwood an early advantage, the Orange didn’t allow a shot on the power play. With two minutes left, SU capitalized on its first power-play of the day off of an Abby Moloughney goal, the first of her collegiate career. The Orange’s defense persisted in the first, outshooting LWU 21-8, and Moloughney’s score put SU on top. But Lindenwood responded on its first shot of the second period. A Cierra Paisley goal, her first of the season, from Taylor Kirwan tied the game at one apiece. The Lions followed their first score with a quick power play, but after three-straight shots they fell short. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textA minute after that advantage was wasted, the Lions recovered and beat SU goalie Ady Cohen again off a goal from Courtney Ganske. A power play 12 minutes into the period gave Syracuse a chance to equalize, but after recording six unanswered shots, it couldn’t score. Lindenwood converted two-thirds of its on-target shots in the second, turning its 1-0 deficit to a 2-1 lead. The Lions made the game 3-1 after a Jada Burke goal halfway through the third, but the Orange weren’t finished. SU and LWU traded shots for the next three minutes with the Orange down two. Eventually, SU’s Jessica DiGirolamo found the back of the net to cut the lead to one.Thirty-seven seconds later, Emma Polaski responded, netting her first score of the season to tie it at three. Lindenwood’s Maddison Stitt was penalized with tripping during the goal, and the Orange entered the next two minutes up a player.After a Sierra Burt shot, SU’s captain Allie Munroe controlled the puck. The defender wound back her stick and scored on deBruyn with less than 30 seconds left in the power play. The goal gave SU a 4-3 lead. But with under 4 minutes left in the period, Lindenwood responded with a Taylor Girard short-handed goal to tie it back at 4-4. Time was ticking down with less than two minutes left in overtime when Eastwood scored her first goal of the season, giving the Orange their first victory of the season. The Orange outshot LWU, 72-37, dominating on the offensive end in the third period. For 50 minutes of play, it looked like SU would spoil its shot output. But it didn’t.

Josh Gordon is getting yet another chance, and he has the full support of his squad as he prepares to get back on the field.The Patriots wide receiver was reinstated by the NFL on Friday after he was suspended indefinitely in December for violating the terms of his reinstatement under the league’s substance abuse policy, and his teammates are looking forward to welcoming him back. Antonio Brown’s new helmet fails test; receiver reacts with harsh tweet “We are excited,” captain Matthew Slater said, via NBCSportsBoston. “I’ll say this: Football is number two. We want to see him first and foremost doing well as an individual, doing well as a man, and we want to support him however we can. We’re just going to take this one day at a time, which is all any of us can do. And we’ll see what tomorrow brings and then we’ll let the day after that worry about it when it comes around.”Gordon has struggled with sobriety throughout his NFL career and has been suspended numerous times for violations of the league’s substance abuse policy, but Slater is confident he is getting the help he needs. Related News “I think having support is always a good thing, no matter who you are, no matter what life has brought your way,” Slater said. “I think support is good, and hopefully he finds that he has support here. I think that’s really all I can say about it now. What’s good, what’s not good remains to be seen.”While he won’t be permitted to play Aug. 22 when New England hosts the Panthers, Gordon can rejoin the Patriots on Sunday.”Obviously we’re excited because we’re pulling for him. We love him,” safety Duron Harmon said, per ESPN. “We always want the best for him, more than anything. He’s a part of this team, a brother of ours. We’re looking forward to seeing him on Sunday.” Gordon, 28, caught 41 passes for 737 yards and four touchdowns for the Patriots last year after being traded from Cleveland to New England before the start of the season.Initially taken by the Browns in the supplemental draft in 2012, Gordon has been in and out of the league in that span and has missed 61 games due to suspension.

Orlando Police say they found DNA linking Calixte to a sexual battery in a neighborhood there.The victim in that case was apparently trying to go into her house when Calixte assaulted her.Meanwhile, a West Palm Beach police report identifies Calixte as the suspect in a Sunset Park groping case.The report states that a 16-year-old and her cousin were walking to the park when Calixte approached them with “uncomfortable, sexual comments.”The victim told police that Calixte rubbed her back and fondled her backside.According to the report, “(The victim) felt abused, extremely uncomfortable, and in fear the suspect would attempt something worse.”Police identified Calixte as their suspect through a photo the victim took of him.“She sent a picture to the officer, we were able to develop a photo lineup, and she was able to positively identify him from the lineup,” says Police Sergeant David LeFont.West Palm Beach Police are asking women who think that Calixte may have assaulted them to come forward by contacting the police department at (561) 822-1900.LeFont adds, “We’ll be reaching out to the other police department and putting those cases together, basically develop a timeline of where the person was. And perhaps there’s other agencies that have other cases that maybe didn’t have enough evidence to charge him or we have a case where we didn’t realize this was the same person.” An Orlando man was arrested in West Palm Beach on Tuesday on suspicion of sexual battery and allegedly groping a local teenager.Detectives from the Orlando Police Department worked with West Palm Beach police to track down and take 36-year-old James Calixte into custody.

Further, Vidal also wanted to explain what a third extension will be like dedicated to current shareholders and others who want to do for the first time: “There are 35 million to guarantee the participation of sportsmen. From March 21 to April 24 will be a proportional preferential subscription for current shareholders. From April 25 to May 9 , subscription for shareholders that have subscribed shares in the first phase, with no purchase limit. And the third one, open to all up to a maximum of 4,500 shares. “The objective is to ascend as soon as possibleFernando Vidal knows that This agreement involves an oxygen ball, but it is also clear that sports goals do not change: “Can anyone think that with this debt you can subsist in Second? You could compete, but with whom? Urgency to ascend there will always be, although the debt was zero. By history the natural place of Depor is First. Nothing guarantees your promotion, but this gives you arguments that if you don’t have them, it’s complicated. It is not the same to compete with 3-4 million salary cap, than with 12-14 “. Fernando Vidal appeared this morning before the media to explain what will be one of the most important changes in the recent history of Deportivo. The president and his Council hope to approve a capital increase by Abanca that will guarantee future viability, but at the same time will change the ownership of the club, which will belong to the bank: “You have to pay 90.8 million euros in 12 years. That is the economic reality. We arrived in December and faced the problem in the face. It is the only real solution. Good in the short term and, above all, with long-term guarantees, avoiding disappearance. “The president thanked the willingness of Abanca, which will control a large majority of the share capital. In this sense, cannot guarantee that the bank’s intention is to sell the Depor: “No one can assure what anyone does with their actions. I can’t ask Abanca for anything, you have to ask them. “

Dear Editor,Few politicians have the courage, capacity and ability of Bharrat Jagdeo; people shower praises on his leadership against the Government for early elections. “He is we boy”, they say. There is virtually no comparison to Jagdeo on either side of the political divide. There is hardly any charismatic alternative in the Opposition PPP save one who is engaged in the legal battle for constitutionalism. That is the overwhelming view of people around the country as the Opposition Leader carries the struggle for constitutional rule and early elections.As almost everyone noted in a survey I am conducting on varied issues, other political leaders would have abandoned this intractable struggle long ago; it is a tough fight with insurmountable challenges. But Jagdeo has stayed the course, and for this, the party’s supporters, and even some on the other side, are most grateful. Even his critics and some within the party who oppose him lauded his fight for elections. They themselves recognise they lack the skills and acumen to lead a struggle the way he does. As people commented, the man has the mettle to lead a fight for adherence to the Constitution and democratic governance. There is hardly any Opposition to his strategy to get early elections.The Caribbean Court of Justice ruled almost two months ago that elections must be held, in accordance with the Constitution; the Constitution dictates elections be held within three months of a successful passage of a No-Confidence Motion. The motion was passed on December 21. A court challenge put a pause on the date. The pause ended on June 12 with the final verdict of the CCJ; the pause was lifted on that date. However, the body that is responsible for holding the elections says it is not ready. From December to now, some seven months later, preparations for elections have barely started. The President says he will not call elections until GECOM says it is ready. The CONSTITUTION says the President fixes a date and GECOM will advise if that date is practical. The Opposition Leader is carrying the struggle like no other to enforce the verdict of the court for early elections. Other Opposition figures from outside the party have also joined in the battle for respect of the Constitution.People (party supporters and some on the other side) love Jagdeo; anyone who does not accept this fact is fooling themselves and they lauded his leadership. As people noted, Jagdeo has inherited a leadership (General Secretary of the PPP) some four years ago just after the party was reeling from “two defeats” in general elections. They say the party was perhaps at its worst position when he took over the mantle. Jagdeo has worked conscientiously to restore the party’s shattered stocks like when he was President. He carried the party to two landslide victories in local elections. Whether he can lead the party to victory in general elections is too early to tell as the focus right now is on an election date.Will the struggle by Jagdeo and others for constitutionally due elections pay off? All legal scholars are unanimous that elections must be held. The overwhelming view among the population at large is elections must, should, and will be held as per the Constitution. But as the President stated a few days ago, GECOM has to advise him when it is ready so he can announce a date. That announcement from the GECOM Chair could come soon after Chief Justice George’s ruling on August 14. The CJ herself is also likely to reiterate the view and order elections.Yours truly,Vishnu Bisram(On the ground amongvoters)
Two organizations of the Chinese Town of WENZHOU, WENZHOU Evening News and Charity Association have collectively provided 200 bags of 25Kg rice and 40 gallons of vegetable oil for Ebola survivors in Bong Mines.Each beneficiary received 25kg rice and two gallons of vegetable oil.Tang Ling Ling, a spokesperson of the WENZHOU Evening News and Charity Association, extended condolences to people who lost their loved ones during the Ebola crisis and said the assorted food items are meant to identify with Liberians.Ebola is a dangerous disease and everyone in the world knows its consequences on any country in which it breaks out, she said.She told survivors and others that while they sympathized with families of the deceased they decided to also show practical concern to the survivors.As a result, she said they collected money for the items from the people of WENZHOU to identify with Liberians especially in China Union’s operating area in Bong Mines.China Union General Manager, Yuan Jun Luo, in a statement, recalled that Ebola broke out in March last year and began spreading in July up to August with the peak in September.He commended hospital workers, including those in Bong Mines, for assisting in getting Ebola under control in the country.“Fighting Ebola is not the only thing that we the Chinese have to do, but will also help Liberians to address the economic issues,” Mr. Yuan assured.He cautioned Liberians not to downplay preventive measures, but constantly practice them so as to avoid the recurrence of the disease.A representative of the recipients, Pewu Mulbah, commended the Chinese group for the gesture and urged them not to forget the inhabitants of Bong Mines as they are reportedly faced with severe hunger.According to Mulbah, they were unable to make their farms in Bong Mines area due to the Ebola crisis. He acknowledged China Union for not abandoning its operations during the crisis.He also recalled that China did more to assist them during the Ebola crisis, and as a result survivors decided to remain in Bong Mines.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
A staff member at Letterkenny General Hospital has been suspended following allegations that a child was physically assaulted.A full investigation has been launched at Letterkenny General Hospital.The alleged incident, which happened in recent days, has sparked a full investigation at the hospital.Health bosses have confirmed to Donegal Daily that an incident is being investigated but are refusing to divulge specific details of the incident. However it is understood a medic has been suspended after it was alleged that she struck a four year old child.It is understood the incident was witnessed by one of the child’s parents.The matter was then reported to hospital management who took immediate action against the medic.A spokesman for the hospital (part of the West/North Hospitals Group) confirmed it is investigating a “trust in care” incident. “Letterkenny General Hospital (part of the West/North West Hospitals Group) is investigating a “Trust in care” incident concerning a child who was attending the hospital, accompanied by its parent.“Letterkenny General Hospital is guided by two policies when dealing with such incidents.“The “Children First” policy states that the key principles informing best practice are that the welfare of children is of paramount importance and that all personnel and health professionals, irrespective of the position held within the organisation, have a responsibility towards child protection and welfare.”The spokesman said the “Trust in Care” policy aims to ensure any allegations or complaints against a member of staff are thoroughly investigated.This policy states that, “at an appropriate stage in the process, management should take whatever protective measures are necessary to ensure that no patient/client or staff member is exposed to unacceptable risk. “These protective measures are not disciplinary measures and may include putting the staff member off duty with pay pending the outcome of the investigation.”The spokesman added that in the interests of fairness and to ensure due process, the nature of any investigation is not discussed with third parties not associated with the alleged incident.A statement from the West/North West Hospitals Group said the matter may be referred to Gardai if appropriate.“When the results of the investigation are known, appropriate action is taken, up to and including disciplinary action and, where appropriate, the reporting of the incident to external authorities.” HOSPITAL WORKER SUSPENDED AFTER CHILD ALLEGEDLY ASSAULTED was last modified: November 5th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:assaultinvestigationLetterkenny General Hospital

16 February 2009The Department of Trade and Industry and the South African National Accreditation System have awarded certificates to the country’s first 11 black economic empowerment (BEE) verification agencies.The ceremony in Pretoria last week marked the start of a fundamental change in the history of BEE verification.Instilling confidenceAccording to the department, the overall aim of accreditation is to instil confidence in entities that subject themselves to empowerment verification, and establish a measurement of excellence against which agencies should strive, in terms of compliance with empowerment criteria.DTI empowerment chief director Nomonde Mesatywa added that the awarding of certificates was a milestone in the evolution of BEE, as 11 companies were part of the first group of verification agencies to have fulfilled all the accreditation requirements.Empowerment accreditation statusThe agencies that have acquired empowerment accreditation status are: BEE Empowered, BEE Matrix, BEE Verification Agency, DRGSiyaya, Emex Trust, Empowerdex, Empwerlogic, Honeycomb, National Empowerment Rating Agency (Nera) Gauteng, Nera KwaZulu-Natal, and Nera Western Cape.“We congratulate those companies and trust that this will give credence to the verification process,” Mesatywa said.“This represents the beginning of a phase in empowerment that will be marked by credibility, reliability, impartiality and the harmonisation of policies, procedures, guidelines, and standards, thus creating a credible and regulated environment for measuring, monitoring and evaluating broad-based empowerment.”She added that this was an ongoing process, which would be refined in order to ensure that accreditation of other agencies was expedited.Equal opportunityEmex trustee Mella Msiza said her company had leant a great deal from the process as a BEE scorecard and supplier verification agency: “As a new company, we are excited that we were afforded an equal opportunity to acquire skills that would enable us to make a livelihood and also empower our communities, by transferring this skill to them.“And we are now more competitive, as opposed to when we started – we now meet the standards set by the South African National Accreditation System.”SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo material

Use different tools based on offsets in conjunction with the RGB Parade to quickly identify color casts and fix bad white balance!Offsets are a great way to fix a bad white balance or color cast, but not every software implements offsets in the same way, and there are several different types of controls that all use RGB offsets to perform corrections. They all function in pretty much the same way, but some applications have only one of these controls and some have them all. Knowing what they are called and how the controls work will let you quickly find the ones your chosen software has, and enable you to do quick, on-they-fly white balance corrections when used with the RGB parade.Using the RGB Parade to Identify Bad White BalanceOne of the best tools in a colorist’s arsenal on the first “correction” pass is the RGB Parade. You can find a more in-depth discussion of it in this article, but here’s a quick run-down: The RGB parade works very similar to the waveform monitor, but instead of showing total combined luminance for the image, it splits the luminance into the separate RGB channels that make up the image.You can use this to your advantage in finding color casts. There are exceptions for when the production design or content of a scene is primarily one color (a close up on a red hat, a shot of the sky, or a room that is vividly yellow with orange furniture, etc.) but in general, most shots will have a fairly even balance between the three channels overall, with small variations in one tonal range or another.If you look at a shot’s RGB Parade and see one color obviously out of line with the other two and it isn’t motivated by production design, you probably have bad white balance or a color cast on the shot that you’ll want to remove during the correction pass.Here’s a shot where the camera was accidentally set on tungsten white balance while outside in sunlight. You can see both in the parade and the image that there’s way too much blue. Using Printer Points to Fix White BalancePrinter points come from the early days of film color correction, where they would shine color filtered (RGB) lights with varying intensities through a negative print onto a positive print to make a color corrected version of the film. They aren’t the primary way that colorists in the DI age adjust color, but some color grading software includes these controls, and they can be a powerful way to remove color casts and fix bad white balance.Printer points affect the image as a whole instead of specific tonal ranges, so you can shift entire RGB channels on the RGB Parade. Printer points generally cover a 50 point range per channel, with the starting/neutral state at 25 points. Since Printer points affect the same channels you see in the Parade, just adjust the controls to add or remove each color and get the channels roughly lined up.Using the Channel/RGB Mixer to Fix White BalanceAnother control that works very similar to printer points is the Channel or RGB mixer. In most software, the RGB mixer lets you adjust the amount of red, green, and blue in each channel (yes, RGB control for R, G, and B channels!) It’s a little crazy – and you should definitely play around and experiment with it’s other uses – but if you only adjust the Red in the R channel, the Blue in the B channel, etc., then it works just like printer points. Use it in conjunction with the parade, get the channels close together, and remove that color cast.Using the Offset Controls to Fix White BalanceThe other main control that can help you quickly fix white balance is the offset control. It usually takes two forms: sliders and a hue/color wheel. The sliders function almost exactly like the printer points or the RGB mixer; bring the amount of R, G, or B up or down depending on what you do with the sliders. The hue offset wheel is a little different than the rest of the controls covered above. You’ve probably seen it before, called a “color corrector” (FCP), a “fast color corrector” (Premiere Pro) or just an “offset” wheel (Resolve). The concept is the same for all of these. Push the hue like with a traditional three-way color corrector, but shift the entire image to that hue instead of just specific tonal ranges.There are advantages and disadvantages to using this control with the RGB parade. If you can pick out what color cast your shot has, just push the wheel in the opposite direction, so it’s very intuitive. The problem comes when you can’t exactly put your finger on what color needs to be removed, and you start relying on the parade to make the adjustment. Because you don’t have separate RGB controls, the direction you push the wheel affects all three channels in different amount, so you may have to play with it to get the right combination of RGB on the parade.As you can see, all of these controls function in pretty much the same way, but knowing what variations there are on these controls will let you know what options your chosen NLE or color grading software has for you to work with. After removing the cast from the shot, you can see that the RGB channels roughly line up on the parade.
“We are a team that loves to play aggressive cricket but “We are a team that loves to play aggressive cricket but this pushes us to respect the conditions which will be good going into the WT20. Im glad we restricted them to 85 runs, 100 or 110 runs and the game was on,” Dhoni said. “The fast bowlers did well but even after that we took wickets at regular intervals which is crucial to stop runs in this format. We have to be switched on in the field, that is one department where you can guarantee performance, one run out can take the game away from the opposition,” the Indian captain added. Pakistan rued that his batsmen did not bat according to the situation. “We have played so much cricket, we should have read the pitch, we did not play according to the pitch, if we lose 4-5 batsmen in the first six overs we cant score 140. We had to read the situation, Kohli was an example, and Yuvi,” he said. “It was not 160 pitch, If we had survived the fast bowlers there wasnt much turn on the pitch for their spinners. You could have managed 7-8 runs in an over,” he said. PTI AT AT

The International Olympic Committee (IOC)’s Coordination Commission for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 today completed its third official visit to the Japanese capital acknowledging the organisers’ significant progress in Games preparations, as well as their commitment to quickly finalise the venue master plan and integrate the five new sports approved during the IOC Session in Rio de Janeiro into their plans. (Latest Sports stories)Building on the success of the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and an internationally acclaimed handover ceremony, Tokyo 2020 showcased over the last two days how its state of the art facilities will offer a unique Olympic and Paralympic experience to the world’s best athletes in 2020. The Coordination Commission also heard about the proposed venues for the sports of baseball/softball, karate, skateboard, sports climbing and surfing, which were included on the Tokyo 2020 programme following a proposal by the Tokyo organisers in response to the new opportunity provided by Olympic Agenda 2020.”We are very pleased with the significant progress that has been achieved since the last visit of the Coordination Commission to Tokyo,” said the Chair of the Coordination Commission, John Coates. “We have seen that President Mori, Governor Koike, Minister Marukawa and Minister Matsuno all share a common desire to deliver outstanding Olympic Games in 2020 for the athletes and for the people of Tokyo and Japan. The IOC and all of the Japanese partners are rowing in the same direction. Our continued close collaboration will ensure that the venue masterplan is finalised quickly; that the significant savings in the Games budget are delivered; and that the local population is left with an important positive legacy from these Games.”advertisementStrong engagement and high interest in the Games are also being displayed by the Japanese business community, with Tokyo 2020’s success in signing 42 domestic partners (15 Tier 1 and 27 Tier 2) so far underlining the Japanese economy’s strong support for the 2020 Games.The coming year will be another important sporting one for Tokyo 2020. The Tokyo organisers will be in Lausanne next week to present for IOC approval the venues of the five new sports that were presented to the Coordination Commission this week. These new venues, which are a mix of temporary and existing venues, have been selected with a view to the experience of the athletes; efficiency of planning and delivery; and their legacy. The final list of events on the Olympic sports programme of the 2020 Games is then due to be agreed upon by the IOC in summer 2017.The two-day visit by the Commission covered a number of topics, including Tokyo 2020’s experience and observation of the Olympic Games Rio 2016, sport, NOC Services, Olympic Village, people management, engagement, sustainability, spectator experience, venues and the Paralympics.

This memory and the love for the sport led him to setup a quaint little resort Kathadi (Tamil for kite) North close to the town, three years ago. Surrounded by palm trees and a desolate beach just half a kilometre away, the space and the setting have a dream-like quality to them. “The beach is calm, with no waves April through September and we use it for leisure activities. Kite surfing, a more serious sport that requires training moves to the South side during these months,” explains Driver who also runs another property, Kathadi South, a basic campsite with beach huts. Kathadi North, though a boutique homestay, provides accommodation in its four huts with thatched roofs. Not suited to the palate of a luxury traveller, the resort is for lovers of water sports and those who are looking to spend their holiday by a pristine, undiscovered beach. The food is homely and served at an openair community table where your hosts Driver and Upasana Mody, 34, (both former residents of Mumbai) dine with you and regale you with tales of life in the Deep South.

The photo below is just before Chris Carson’s biggest run of the day. Let me say this, I love this formation, this is 2011 OSU football. Four wide, spread the defense out and run the ball. OSU used to carve up defenses running out of this formation.I wish the offensive coaching staff would take any formation that isn’t four wide, diamond, or goal line and shred them, then take the shredded pieces outside, put them in a dumpster pour gas on them and set them on fireThis play appears to have multiple options for Rudolph, a play like this puts a defense in a bad spot. Texas has three down linemen, three linebackers, three corners, and two safeties. One safety is deep off screen. This formation puts OSU in a five on five situation for running the ball.The RT for OSU chips down on the NT and breaks away towards the LB. Rudolph’s main focus is the right side DE. OSU lets him run free. If he crashes Rudolph pulls the ball back and has a pass/QB run option.The slot WRs are running WR screens. The left side outside WR is blocking down, if Rudolph throws to the left side he could have a nice five to six yard gain. Rudolph’s right side looks even better, Texas has a two on two situation set up, if he throws to Washington, he already has his guy beat, he’s a block away from a big gain. The outside WR is Jarwin , he’s one on one on the outside, which can be a favorable matchup TE vs CB.The DE doesn’t crash, he shoots up field, Rudolph makes the correct read and hands the ball off. With the alignment and blocking scheme, all Carson has to do is pick which way the linebacker is getting blocked and go the other direction. Carson makes the correct cut and doesn’t get touched till he’s ten yards downfield.The up front blocking scheme is great because the backside backer is reading the OL blocking down. If you’ll notice their first step is to the left, this causes the backside backer to misread the play. By the time Carson hits the hole, the backside LB has already taken himself out of the play. I love everything about this play, the formation, the blocking scheme, the multiple options.I don’t understand why we don’t run like this more often. Perfect example of great play call, great execution, let’s hope to see more of this in the weeks to come.On the other hand…This is one of the formations I wish would be shredded and burned. Look, OSU isn’t built to be a power running team. The reason I hate this formation is because it draws more defenders into an area of weakness, I don’t think anyone will argue that OSU is good at interior OL. Now OSU has bunched up the defense, Texas has four DL and three LBs crowding the box, they have two safeties over the top, and two corners.This isn’t a terrible call, second and nine, usually a passing down, OSU runs a draw right here. We now know that Rudolph had some throwing issues and had numbness in his hand. So I completely understand running a draw. You’re down three and on your own 46 yard line; a couple of first downs and you get into field range to tie the game. The issue is, our execution is and has been so bad on the interior, OSU ends up putting more stress on an already gimpy QB.The way this play is being blocked should look like pass blocking, the DL is allowed to rush up field, and with this blocking it is important that you stay squared up or in front of the defender. The idea is to let them rush up field and block them out of the RBs lane. First thing that happens is No. 57 gets beat (common theme) and doesn’t stay squared up or in front of the DT. This disrupts the RB’s ability to gain momentum.Second thing is that No. 74 gets stood up, he’s either supposed to be coming off the ball to drive the DT out or he messed up on allowing the DT to rush up field, it’s hard for me to tell because he gets stood up and driven backwards.Either way this hurts the RB’s momentum and causes the hole to collapse. Third thing is No. 47 completely whiffs on the middle linebacker, so even if Childs had gotten through he would have been met in the hole by the MLB. This isn’t a terrible play call given the situation, had those three blocks been made, then Childs is on a one on one situation with the CB.To contradict myself, this is a terrible play call, because No. 57 has consistently shown that he can’t make those blocks. The play I broke down earlier, he was crashing down on a DT, who was already stepping the direction he was being blocked.This play went for no gain, now OSU is in 3rd and 9 down three in the 4th quarter with a QB that has a bad hand. That is how you set an offense up for failure, it is on Gundy and Yurcich to understand what this teams weakness are and avoid calling plays that will exploit that.If OSU runs the draw out of the first formation they would have spread the LBs out to cover the WR. Even if No. 57 misses the block, there aren’t as many bodies around and Childs has a possibility to bounce the run another direction. OSU has a history of effectively running the ball out of four WR sets; it creates space, which is something OSU has struggled with.I’m not going to blame Yurcich 100 percenton this, Gundy is trying to take the offense a different direction, which is something that needs to be looked at more in depth on another post.Gundy and Co. want OSU to be a power running team, which is fine in theory and I understand why, you aren’t always going to have a great passing QB and Big 12 defenses have shifted to defend the spread. If every defense you face in conference is built to stop Baylor or Tech’s air raid and you roll in there with multiple fullbacks and tight ends, you now have an advantage over those teams.The problem is OSU does have a great passing QB and WR talent, the Cowboy Backs so far have been a flop in blocking situations. I love them in passing game, 6’5 260 pound guys are tough to cover, ask anyone tasked with guarding Gronk.While I understand why we are making this move, it still doesn’t make sense to push it right now. OSU doesn’t have the talent to do that, they aren’t good enough at interior oline right now. OSU has too much depth at WR, changes like this need to be phased in slowly.Nick Saban isn’t going to start rolling out four wide and throw it all over the field, he doesn’t have the personnel to do so. This is on Gundy to realize what we’re doing isn’t working. Mix in the power every now and then, but OSU’s base offense needs to be four wide and throwing. They did that some on the first two drives, so maybe we’ll see a shift back to the old way. I commend Gundy for trying to stay ahead of the curve, I really do, but he needs to stick with what works.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

“It is incredible what you get back actually. It’s rarely as simple as you’d think. “It is always very, very individual.”For the adolescents I care for, a lot of it is about their legacy, what they leave behind.”It’s about what they wish to achieve with the time they have – do they want to do their GCSEs? If they have treasured possessions, are they desperate to know who they are going to leave those to?”On one level, it opens a conversation you need to have and on the next level, it promotes you to think about them as an individual, not just as a person whose medical or social care you are delivering.”Leaving an online legacyMeanwhile, terminally-ill teenagers may want to be asked if they would like social media accounts to be closed down or turned into memorial pages.The new guidance states that when a child or young person is approaching the end of their life, health or care workers should talk to parents about “what would help them”, such as plans for social media content.Dr Harrop, who works for Helen & Douglas House Hospices in Oxfordshire, said: “Some young people are old enough to have their own social media pages and when someone passes away, there is a mechanism to make ‘in mem’ (memorial) pages where people can add tributes but the content is limited. “It was brought up as something that might come into a conversation with parents, or conversations parents have with a young person, to say ‘do you have a specific wish of what we do with your Facebook page or Whatsapp?”Do you want us to leave something about you on the net because your friends might find that very meaningful or would you like us to take it all down because it is private to you?”‘The new guidance, which aims to improve the end-of-life care for babies, children and young people, suggests that hospital, hospice and home care staff must look after the whole family, practically and emotionally, when a child is dying. Children and young people should be asked what they want to achieve before they die, Nice says Credit:PA To lose a child is a tragic, life-changing event. But the care given to a child and their family during this difficult time can offer great comfort, if done properly Children and young people who are dying should be asked if they have a ‘bucket list’ of wishes they want to accomplish, health officials have said. Medics or care workers developing care plans for terminally-ill children should ask about their “life ambitions and wishes”, according to guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice).Watchdogs said it might be appropriate to ask youngsters what they want to be done with their social media accounts, such as Facebook or Twitter pages, after their deaths. Young people or their families should be asked about what they hope to achieve in life, including ambitions for social activities, relationships and educational attainment, the guideline suggests.Dying teenagers might want to complete their GCSEs or make specific wishes on who should be given their personal belongings, according to Dr Emily Harrop, a paediatric palliative care consultant who helped to develop the guideline.The child or a parent, depending on the child’s age, should also be asked about life ambitions, she said.Dr Harrop said: “When we start a conversation about end-of-life planning, rather than introduce that with a very closed question or a very negative question, we often start by asking for things like ‘What do you hope for? What do you aspire to do for yourself? What would you hope your child to achieve?’ It is estimated that more than 40,000 children and young people in England are living with a life-limiting condition – where there is no hope of cure.Professor Mark Baker, director for the centre of guidelines at Nice, said: “To lose a child is a tragic, life-changing event. But the care given to a child and their family during this difficult time can offer great comfort, if done properly.”This guidance clearly sets out best practice for all those involved in palliative care, whether that be at home, in a hospice or in a hospital. I hope it will be implemented fully so that those families going through the worst time of their lives are properly supported.” The guidance also says doctors and nurses should not be afraid to cuddle and comfort dying children.The guidelines from Nice suggest that physical contact such as “touch, holding and massage” should be offered as non-pharmalogical interventions for pain and agitation.In recent years, healthcare professionals have become wary of personal interaction with children following a spate of child abuse scandals.But the new guidance makes it clear that physical contact is important, particularly for children. And it suggests that doctors and nurses include using art, music and play to explain the concept of death to children. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

For months Paul Higson had given up all hope of finding his lost wedding ring – then his wife found it under a rock on a beach in Orkney.Mr Higson, 60, is an environmental consultant who works all over Orkney had no idea where the ring was, or even how he lost it in the first place.A keen birdwatcher and beachcomber, the ring could have been anywhere.Then walking on the Sands of Wright beach Mr Higson’s wife, Jan, noticed a sparkling object beneath a rock while the couple were walking their dogs.”I originally thought it was a washer or something like that but I bent down and moved one of the stones because it was wedged under one of the stones and pulled it out and it was Paul’s wedding ring,” she told BBC Scotland.Mr Higson could not believe the find. “I was quite stunned, to be honest, because I thought Jan was joking.”She showed me the ring and it just fitted straight back on my finger again.”When you’ve worn it as long as I have you just know. It fitted perfectly. It was the ring,” he added.”For Jan to just to look down and see it was a million-to-one chance really.”

Wicked Lasers‘ newest product is the S3 Krypton, a laser so powerful that it is 8000 times brighter than the sun, has a range of 85 miles, and can be hazardous not only to pilots (when flying their planes) but can reach satellites in orbit. The laser is most potent when in its $999, 1000mW variant, but it also ships in 500mW ($499) and 300mW ($299).The S3 Krypton produces a generous 86 million lux and is said to be over 8000 times brighter than look directly into the Sun. What this basically means is that it’s no toy, it’s a serious instrument… for what we’re not quite sure, but it shouldn’t be handled lightly. Ostensibly this thing is for lighting paper on fire in laboratories and pointing out tiny objects miles away, at night, in uninhabited parts of the world, but lesser lasers can do both of those tasks.If you haven’t used a (relatively) powerful laser in the past, know this: they can be scary. Even a humble 200-300mW green laser model has a surprising amount of power, especially when used in a confined space. Outside they feel less dangerous, but you’ll still be in constant fear of someone calling the FBI if you wave this thing around or even point it at the sky.Aside from the S3 Krypton’s power, this laser has a number of other frills to it. These include an all-aluminum body, a 100% duty cycle rating (which means it can run continuously for the duration of its 2 hour battery life without overheating), it has seven operating modes, and a number of safety features. The laser weighs a hefty 443 grams and is about 10-inches long.As pointed out above, this high-power lasers can be interesting — in a reckless sort of way — for a few minutes, but there isn’t much you can do with them. The S3 is too big and heavy to used on a gun sight and it’s too powerful for using in most traditional laser applications. The one idea I was able to take from Wicked’s site is that it would function as an excellent SOS/emergency beacon, so long as you don’t blind the people who are coming to rescue you.Wicked Lasers, via gizmodo
During the last few minutes, Dusek addressed some transportation issues pertinent to Homer students, which will be addressed further on Thursday at West Homer Elementary Library. Dusek urged viewers to get involved in the budget process because over the past four years the school district has already reduced budget expenditures by nearly $8 million. Later a viewer asked Dusek, “Please remind us about the emergency procedures- for example had that been an earthquake at 12:30 p.m.” District Superintendent Sean Dusek began with an update since no questions had been posted yet: “So what really has happened now is we’re looking at a $3.3 million deficit and as a part of that we will use a little bit of our savings to offset some of that deficit but we’re likely going to have to find over $2 million in budget reductions.” He says that on February 1, Assistant Superintendent Dave Jones will be hosting a Facebook Live Budget Discussion, followed by four in-person budget forums around the Peninsula. Dusek: “Again it is dependent upon the severity of the situation, but if something like that would’ve happened yesterday we would have done Duck, Cover, Hold, we would have moved our kids to safe locations within the building or to evacuation zones.” Dusek also thanked all of the first responders who jumped into action early Tuesday morning to assist with the tsunami warnings and shelters in the KPBSD schools.

I dunno about you, but I’m really fascinated by home automation. Yeah, it’s a little creepy, having parts of your life more or less managed by machines or computers, but honestly? It’s just nice. I got a great HDMI switch a couple of weeks back that automagically moves to the device I need by figuring out which is sending the most data and therefore most likely to be “active.” It’s dorky, but it’s just the kind of thing I dork out over.Anyway… wouldn’t it be rad if your whole room was like that? That’s the idea behind Ori Systems. It’s basically a motorized room that can adjust and move about based on your needs. You can, for example, configure it so that you have a sprawling mattress to catch your Zs. Then, when it’s time to start the day, you can fold that away and get to work at your desk. Or, you could tuck away the business and bust out the entertainment center.Ori Systems started as an MIT project called CityHome. The idea is to help automate and motorize living spaces to help city dwellers get more efficient use of their space. If you’re not using your bed, you should be able to fold it away and reclaim that area. It could make studios and other compact spaces far, far more livable. Running with the idea of folding, the group rebranded themselves as Ori Systems — named after origami, the Japanese art of folding.Ori – One Room. A Hundred Ways. from Ori on Vimeo.Right now it’s only available to real-estate developers for a whopping $10,000 in major North American cities. Models have been tested in a few apartment complexes and Airbnb spots. Using that, Ori hopes that they’ve got a system that could go a long way towards making cities more comfortable. There are tons of methods of control, from automated systems run on Belkin’s WeMo hardware to simple voice commands via Amazon’s Alexa.There’s only going to be 1,200 units for now, but hopefully, that’ll be enough to start expanding. I know I’m not supposed to editorialize and play up the business I’m covering, but this is Geek, and I think this thing is cool as hell. I want one, even though I could never afford it. But I just… love everything about it and the idea of it, and…. Uggggggggh why does stuff I like have to take time to be a thing?

Cats have a reputation as being stand-offish and somewhat distant—some have suggested they only hang around their owners because of the easy meals. But they may actually like their owners more than their reputation suggests, the researchers with this new effort found. They point out that cats may simply be misunderstood, noting that recent research has found that cats have complex socio-cognitive and problem solving abilities. They suggest further that the commonly held belief that cats are less reactive to social stimuli might be due to a lack of knowledge regarding the things that cats actually find stimulating.To assess the degree to which cats like (or are stimulated by) certain things, the researchers tested reactions from two groups of 19 cats each—those living with people and those living in a shelter. The cats were kept sequestered for two and a half hours and were then watched as they were presented with three items from one of four category types: food, scent, toy and human interaction. The researchers mixed up the stimuli for the different cats to get a better read on which they found the most stimulating. The degree of preference for any one stimulus was judged by which stimulus the cat went for first and how and for how long it interacted with it.The researchers report that they found clear variability among the cats regardless of home type, but overall social interaction with humans was the stimulus most preferred—half of the cats chose interacting with a human above anything else offered, which included food—they spent on average 65 percent of their time interacting with a person. This, the researchers suggest, shows that cats really do like being around their human owners, despite how they might behave around them. Cat experiment suggests they remember in ways similar to humans and dogs Citation: Cats found to like humans more than thought (2017, March 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-03-cats-humans-thought.html Credit: CC0 Public Domain Explore further (Phys.org)—A trio of researchers with Oregon State University and Monmouth University has conducted experiments with cats, and has found that they appear to like humans more than expected. In their paper published in the journal Behavioral Processes, Kristyn Vitale Shreve, Lindsay Mehrkam and Monique Udell describe their experiments and their plans for conducting additional experiments to better understand cat motivations. Journal information: Behavioural Processes © 2017 Phys.org More information: Kristyn R. Vitale Shreve et al, Social interaction, food, scent or toys? A formal assessment of domestic pet and shelter cat ( Felis silvestris catus ) preferences, Behavioural Processes (2017). DOI: 10.1016/j.beproc.2017.03.016AbstractDomestic cats (Felis silvestris catus) engage in a variety of relationships with humans and can be conditioned to engage in numerous behaviors using Pavlovian and operant methods Increasingly cat cognition research is providing evidence of their complex socio-cognitive and problem solving abilities. Nonetheless, it is still common belief that cats are not especially sociable or trainable. This disconnect may be due, in part, to a lack of knowledge of what stimuli cats prefer, and thus may be most motivated to work for. The current study investigated domestic cat preferences at the individual and population level using a free operant preference assessment. Adult cats from two populations (pet and shelter) were presented with three stimuli within each of the following four categories: human social interaction, food, toy, and scent. Proportion of time interacting with each stimulus was recorded. The single most-preferred stimulus from each of the four categories were simultaneously presented in a final session to determine each cat’s most-preferred stimulus overall. Although there was clear individual variability in cat preference, social interaction with humans was the most-preferred stimulus category for the majority of cats, followed by food. This was true for cats in both the pet and shelter population. Future research can examine the use of preferred stimuli as enrichment in applied settings and assess individual cats’ motivation to work for their most-preferred stimulus as a measure of reinforcer efficacy.

Kolkata: The Indian Dental Association’s (IDA) Kolkata and the Suburban branch have started one month-long oral cancer awareness camps at 10 different places to impart knowledge on how to check oral cancer and other ailments.The IDA has already been observing ‘Oral Cancer Awareness Month’ which will continue till February 4. One of the main objectives of the programme is to ensure that people become aware on how to prevent various oral diseases. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedThe Republic Day celebrations turned out to be a platform for the IDA to send across a message to various sections of society. Free oral health care and cancer screening camps were held at 10 different places —Berhampore, Bhangarh, Anandapalit, Hooghly, Beniapukur, Daspur, Mandarmani, Budge Budge, Tangra and Mourigram on the Republic Day. Various kits were provided to people for free and demonstrations were done illustrating the easy methods for detection and prevention of oral cancer. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseIt may be mentioned that the Bengal chapter of the IDA has already taken up an elaborate programme vowing to fight against deadly diseases like cancer. Various branches of the IDA are organising camps at regular intervals. Dr Raju Biswas, president, IDA Kolkata and the suburban Branch, who is also the secretary of Bengal chapter of the organisation said: “With the alarming increase in tobacco consumption in the past few decades, the oral cancer has become most potential threat to mankind. The procedure to check the disease is simple but most people are not familiar with the facts. We hope to educate them with the pre-cancerous symptoms through these oral health care camps”. Dr Mousum Mondal , secretary, IDA Kolkata and suburban branch stated: “Health is a birthright for all the citizens. We hope to provide better healthcare facilities to all strata through one month-long dental and oral health care camps. We have successfully reached out to almost 1000 people on the auspicious occasion of Republic Day, teaching them ways to detect and prevent oral cancer.”
Donald Trump was elected President last night, and Colin says it all boils down to authenticity and relatability to regular Americans, and distrust of the media and political class. Last night was a loud rejection of the out of touch. Blue team out, red team in. Let’s work together.“The blue team’s out, the red team’s in, because they were more relatable in the suburbs and rural America. Is Trump a concern? I think our republic is built to withstand Trump. What our republic is not built to withstand is a media that the American citizens don’t trust. And oh, boy, you do not. That was middle finger to the American media. To the American establishment. To the political system.”Michael Jordan may be considered the best basketball player ever, but Colin thinks LeBron is the most complete player ever. He scores, passes, rebounds, unites teammates, and there has never been another player with his skill set. Including MJ.“Most of you will not consider him the best player, but he’s easily the most complete.”The latest College Football Playoff rankings were released last night, and Colin thinks the rankings are far too driven by agendas and biases. Vegas also releases its own rankings, which are based on unbiased analysis, not alliances and politics. The best example of the discrepancy in the rankings is LSU, which is ranked 24th in the CFP poll and 9th in the Vegas poll. LSU has close losses to Auburn, Wisconsin and Alabama, and can play with anyone. Colin trusts Vegas, not the committee.“Be authentic. Be authentic. Be trustable. Committee out, Vegas in.”Guests:Eric Mangini – Former NFL head coach joins the show to discuss his time with Jim Harbaugh, why his enthusiasm is absolutely sincere, why playing Jared Goff if he hasn’t earned it could create a locker room rift, and why NFL teams should vote “yes” on Proposition F, and use the fade pattern.Joel Klatt – FS1 College Football Analyst is in-studio to defend Washington being ranked #4 in the latest CFP poll, why the playoff committee is a sham, why winning should matter in the process, and his Almost Upset Pick of the Week, which may or may not happen.Chris Broussard – FS1 NBA Insider is in-studio to discuss Colin’s contention that LeBron is the most complete player ever, if Klay Thompson is the odd man out in Golden State, and the reaction to the result of the presidential election in the NBA.Christian Pulisic – Borussia Dortmund and U.S. Soccer midfielder joins the show to look ahead to the USMNT showdown with Mexico in Columbus, Ohio, how he deals with the expectations being heaped on him as the future of U.S. soccer, and whether the MLS will be viewed as an elite professional league.
Some coaches almost act like players when their team scores a touchdown. That’s not Bill Belichick’s style. The G.O.A.T. agreed to was mic’d up for the Pats, 31-17 win over the Packers, and barely emoted to any of New England’s four touchdowns, including two fourth quarter scores that put the game out of reach. There’s acting like you’ve been there before, then there’s acting like you’re in a library, like this:Proof that Belichick is one of the most HYPE coaches in the game 🤣🤣pic.twitter.com/K656goVygV— NFL Provider (@NflProvider) November 8, 2018 While Belichick’s body language after each score was indistinguishable from watching warmups, he did go off on a group of officials for not doing their jobs to his satisfaction.

The wife of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán — the Mexican drug lord who was recaptured earlier this year, months after his escape from a maximum-security prison — says she now fears for his life.“They want to make him pay for his escape,” 26-year-old Emma Coronel Aispuro said, according to The Los Angeles Times. “They say that they are not punishing him. Of course they are. They are there with him, watching him in his cell.“They are right there, all day long, calling attendance. They don’t let him sleep. He has no privacy, not even to go to the restroom.”In the interview — her first-ever public comments about her marriage, according to the Times — Coronel said that she’s only seen her husband once since he was imprisoned again, a visit that lasted just 15 minutes.She said he was “completely shackled, handcuffed,” at the time, and guards at the facility stayed close by.She also claimed that Guzmán was “slowly being tortured” and that his blood pressure was high.“I am afraid for his life,” she said.The interview with Coronel aired on Telemundo and was the basis for the Times story, a collaborative project with the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California at Berkeley.Guzmán was captured in early January, about six months after he had tunneled out of Federal Social Readaptation Center No. 1, which is also known as Altiplano prison.Before his capture, however, he was interviewed by actor Sean Penn, a meeting that led to a piece published in Rolling Stone.See: ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán and actress Kate del Castillo talked of ‘dream’ meeting in textsWatch the Telemundo interview with El Chapo’s wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, in Spanish:Guzmán had escaped the federal facility outside of Mexico City in July 2015, slipping out through a hole in the floor of his cell. Now that he’s back in custody, authorities in Mexico have begun the extradition process to the U.S.“I will follow to wherever he is,” Coronel said. “I am in love with him. He is the father of my children.”Coronel, a former beauty queen, and Guzmán are the parents of twin girls.The pair married in 2007, on the day Coronel turned 18, according to the Times report. Guzmán is 32 years older than Coronel, his third wife.“I would say what won me over was his way of talking, how he treated me, the way we began to get along — first as friends and from that came everything else,” Coronel said. “He tends to win over people by his manner of being, of acting, the way he treats people in general.”© 2016, The Washington Post Facebook Comments Related posts:Mexico wants to question Sean Penn over meeting with ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán Mexico captures fugitive drug lord ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, says President Peña Nieto Beachcombing along the Caribbean drug trail in Nicaragua Mexico drug lord ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán back in jail, betrayed by biopic bid
Sydney’s popularity as a global tourist destination is being mirrored online, with the city’s Facebook and Google+ pages both having reached one million followers, Minister for Tourism and Major Events George Souris said today. “People love to share photos of their favourite Sydney locations and activities, and we are in awe every week at how stunning the images are,” Ms Chipchase said. “Sydney.com and Visitnsw.com were also ranked sixth on the list of top 20 websites in the travel and accommodation categories for Australia,” she said. Source = Destination NSW “The pages showcase tips for visitors on where to stay, what to see and things to do in Sydney. They also include information about the best deals on accommodation, attractions, tours and restaurants, as well as useful tips that can help visitors plan the perfect trip. The achievement makes Sydney the first Australian city to reach one million Facebook fans, and the first to reach the milestone for both Facebook and Google+ simultaneously. Destination NSW analytics show the two websites recorded more than 10.1 million visits and delivered over 2.6 million leads to the NSW tourism industry this financial year to date, from July 2013 to January 2014. “We hope by experiencing a taste of Sydney online, people will plan an actual visit, and share their own experiences with the Facebook and Google+ communities.” “Destination NSW’s websites Sydney.com and Visitnsw.com are now ranked first among Australia’s State Tourism Organisation websites and the Tourism Australia website, attracting 51 per cent of all website traffic in this sector as at December 2013. “More than 80 million international and domestic overnight and domestic day trip tourists visited NSW in the year ending September 2013, and this was worth more than $27 billion to the state’s economy. Over 37 per cent of these visitors came to Sydney,” he said. Destination NSW CEO, Sandra Chipchase, said it was easy to see the enthusiasm for Sydney in the comments and posts on the pages. “Sydney’s social media channels, which are managed and promoted by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, are central to engagement strategies with domestic and international visitors, our stakeholders and industry, and help position Sydney and NSW as Australia’s premier tourist and events destination,” Mr Souris said.

has lost the trust and respect of the faculty members inthe Department of Aviation” the resolution reads “The faculty of the Department of Aviation has no confidence in Provost Thomas DiLorenzo”Kennedy told the Herald Thursday that he plans to leave the provost in place but expressed concern about the resolution“Clearly when our aviation department is concerned I’m concerned” he

be provided by the department the resolution saidDiLorenzo has refused to allow the aviation department to hire tenure-track faculty positions “thus making it very difficult if not impossible to recruit needed faculty to our program and severely limiting the ability of these new faculty members to engage in research” the resolution saidDiLorenzo did not approve the department’s request to recruit new faculty for the fall 2018 semester until May 2018 the resolution said which made it difficult for the department to attract external applicantsThe provost has also removed the graduate dean the resolution saidThe resolution also claims that despite a large increase in enrollment at the John D Odegard School of Aerospace a new budget model known as MIRA has created more expenditures than revenue“Provost Thomas DiLorenzo has overseen a chaotic massively misunderstood and greatly misguided new budget model known as ‘MIRA’ which purports to return local financial control to colleges

on Twitter now "Had there been any formal assurance the prime minister would have been first to speak The finance minister would have gone and said everything on his blog and started tweeting" Sibal

House I was sceptical on whether I would live up to its daunting standards and I leave today as sceptical but certainly with no ambiguity In the debates there have been moments of highs and lows — disruptions but also debates of extraordinary quality The stint in Rajya Sabha gave me the opportunity to raise issues germane to the development of Bihar I did whatever I could to highlight Bihar’s achievements challenges and opportunities Notwithstanding Bihar’s glorious history from being the seat of the oldest republic and the cradle of the great kingdoms of the Guptas and Mauryas it fell back on times The present regime under the leadership of Shri Nitish Kumar has brought about far-reaching economic and social changes It will be fair to say that the outcome is neither the work of one party nor one person It is the outcome of the joint efforts of the NDA of which my party was an alliance partner till June last year And the collective political leadership of both the parties played a critical role in bringing about these far-reaching changes The challenges of Bihar are far from over Sustaining high rates of economic growth over coming social challenges moving over from identity-based development-centric policies enticing private investment and improving physical and social infrastructure to reach national averages in our lifetime would be the litmus test of the present and future political leadership of the state I want to speak a little on what I perceive to be the five key challenges of India: First how to achieve high rates of sustained economic growth without accentuating inequality Twenty-first century capitalism may have metamorphosed (or undergone creative destruction as Joseph Schumpeter would have said) in multiple ways from laissez-faire capitalism to social democratic capitalism to what is now called Capitalism 50 Contemporary economic literature suggests that economic liberalisation unleashes forces of competition improving productivity enlarging the bouquet of choice for consumers improves Total Factor Productivity and enhances growth But are there limits to what is pejoratively described as neoliberal capitalism How does one balance the virtues of growth with the compulsions of equity Can there be a “Conscionable Capitalism” relevant to India’s socio-economic compulsions Second when will we ever have time to reform the rubric of governance And to reform Parliament itself — the centrepiece of our governance architecture As India has become increasingly integrated and interdependent with the world are the parliamentary rules procedures methods of work and exercise of parliamentary superintendence over the executive in India adequate to meet contemporary challenges Should not the parliamentary calendar be fixed and predictable Should budget-making be shrouded in secrecy and all parliamentary engagement become ex-post and not ex-ante And in an interdependent world should the executive have the latitude to make far-reaching international commitments on trade on environment on energy without parliamentary approval Should we not at least devote one day to discuss India’s Five-Year Plan These are matters for this House to ponder over Third the changing role of the state In a poor society like ours with inadequate social security systems what would be a more optimum mix of poverty alleviation measures and a new form of welfareism which we have embraced as legally enforcing entitlements Unless radically different ways of delivering service and implementation are adopted these added responsibilities of the state will make growth itself a far cry Fourth how to break the conundrum between agriculture manufacturing and employment in a country with adverse land-man ratio To raise agricultural productivity would need externalities of scale by creating alternative gainful employment opportunities Economies of scale would entail alternative employment opportunities in manufacturing hubs which has scarcely begun Orderly urbanisation in major cities is inescapable for sustaining migration in the quest for alternative employment opportunities Managing the environmental consequences of growth is easier said than done Our carbon footprints may be low but conscious steps which will reconfigure economic activity patterns and variations in alternative forms of energy — and in agriculture industry and services — will prove challenging These may require new approaches and new ideas beyond what we have tried To this end John Maynard Keynes had said “The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones” Finally making India an innovation-driven society Technological and organisational innovation is the key to higher productivity and competitiveness We must encourage and incentivise innovation and its diffusion in academia and government as well as in enterprises of all sizes Innovation should focus not only on

Shinde in September 2016 They had approached the Principal Judge through advocate Shabnam Shaikh contending that under the newly amended Juvenile Justice Act no joint proceedings of a child in conflict with law along with an adult can be conducted Watch what else is in the news Under the new Juvenile Justice Act the case of the 17-year-old was transferred to the sessions court by the Juvenile Justice Board after a preliminary assessment in December 2016 The case is currently being heard before a designated children’s court The court however was also hearing the adult accused’s case The prosecution had contended that separate records were being maintained to ensure that the trial is not conducted as a joint one Principal Judge S B Agarwal in his order passed on December 10 stated the two proceedings could not be said to be joint since they were registered as two different cases and evidence too would be recorded separately “What is required to be seen is that if both these cases are tried by the same court whether there is possibility of interest of juvenile being jeopardised On the contrary no prejudice would be caused to the prosecution if the case of the adult is tried by some other court except for some logistical inconvenience” the court stated The Judge further said that while the trial court would have to keep in mind that the accused was a juvenile and the case could only be transferred to the children’s court and not to any other court The court has transferred the adult accused’s case to another court While the juvenile was released on bail last month and charges likely to be framed against him this month before the children’s court the adult’s bail plea is currently pending The juvenile has also filed an application seeking preliminary assessment to be conducted by the children’s court to decide whether the case should be heard before it or be transferred back to the Juvenile Board The prosecution has been directed to file a reply on the plea Under the new Act the children’s court is directed to conduct a separate assessment after the case of a juvenile between 16-18 years is transferred to it to ascertain whether there is a

organisers assured blaming a drop in alkalinity levels for an uninviting green hue during competition on Tuesday The water in the pool was bright green on Tuesday baffling competitors in the women’s 10 metre synchronised event who said they could not see their partner underwater The mysterious shade of the water which contrasted sharply against the blue of the water polo pool beside it was also clearly visible on television to millions of viewers around the world many of whom joked about algae and dye on social media The international swimming federation (FINA) blamed a lack of chemicals in the system “FINA can confirm that the reason for the unusual water colour… is that the water tanks ran out some of the chemicals used in the water treatment process” it said in a statement “As a result the pH level of the water was outside the usual range causing the discolouration” Organisers said tests at the Maria Lenk Aquatic Centre’s diving pool were conducted regularly and the quality of the water was no threat to the divers’ health “There was a sudden decrease of alkalinity” said Games spokesman Mario Andrada “We probably failed to note that with more athletes the water could be affected” He assured divers the water posed no health risk and despite the rain slowing down the process of turning the water blue this would happen some time later on Wednesday “There is absolutely no risk to anybody The independent group (charged with checking the water quality) confirmed the measures to bring the pool back to its normal colour” Andrada said “The rain affected a bit the changes
