See all posts by Matthew Dumigan A stock market crash presents an opportunity for investors to hoover up shares in companies trading on discounted valuations. When market sentiment deteriorates rapidly, many shares can be oversold and, thus, appear undervalued. So, if you’re intending to invest money in the stock market, today could be an ideal time to do so.Investing money in the aftermath of a stock market crashSince the major sell-off in March, global stocks have risen sharply. In fact, the American blue-chip index (the S&P 500) recently reached a new all-time high. That’s pretty staggering considering the bleak economic conditions and an ever-present threat of a second wave of coronavirus infections.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…However, many UK shares haven’t enjoyed the same success as their American counterparts. To illustrate, the FTSE 100 index is still down by around 20% since the beginning of 2020. Rather than being put off by this, I think investors should see it as an opportunity. With countless British companies still trading on dirt-cheap valuations, now could be a fantastic time to buy shares in high-quality businesses.With that in mind, I’d direct my attention towards searching for companies that are trading well below their average historic valuations. As well as offering a wide margin of safety, this indicates the company’s shares may be undervalued. Picking up such shares while they’re cheap often results in tidy returns further down the line. Especially when investor sentiment towards the company picks up again. This strategy is one of the ways in which investing genius Warren Buffett has made his millions over the years.The path to getting rich and retiring earlyOnce you’ve invested your money in a handful of cheap UK shares, it’s time to sit back and hold for the long term. While short-term risks will inevitably continue to take their toll on equities, this shouldn’t be a concern for long-term investors. Why? Because having a long-term horizon allows you to ride out any temporary market downswings. On top of this, it also aids the process of compounding returns, which is key to making serious gains.Over time, the stock market has a track record of delivering favourable returns to investors. For example, the average annual return of the FTSE 100 index over the last 30 years has been around 8%. The FTSE 250’s is even higher at approximately 12%.Those investing money in the stock market can expect to realise a decent return over the long term. What’s more, if you have an investment horizon of 15, 20, or even 30 years, you have the potential to build a tidy investment pot that could even fuel your early retirement. With that in mind, I’d carry on investing in cheap UK shares today in order to build serious wealth over time.

Alan Oscroft | Friday, 21st May, 2021 | More on: TRN FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Shares in online rail ticker seller Trainline (LSE: TRN) steadied on Friday, down just 1%, at the time of writing. That’s a big improvement on Thursday’s trading, which pummelled the Trainline share price into a 23% fall. So what happened?It’s all down to the publication of the ‘Williams-Shapps plan for rail’, to give it its proper name. The idea is to improve the UK’s rail transport system. As a rail traveler (pandemic permitting), the ambition gets a thumbs-up from me, although I won’t be convinced until I see it happen. But it’s being touted as the biggest UK railways shake-up in decades.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…What’s this got to do with Trainline? Well, the plan will create a new national rail body, Great British Railways (GBR). And GBR will have its own ticket-selling platform. The fear, then, is that the Trainline service will be harmed, or perhaps even become redundant.I previously thought the Trainline share price had a defensive nature, in the shape of the company’s well-developed system and infrastructure. But a new public body doesn’t need to worry about the costs of setting up a competing service. Or about being efficient, or making profits to please its shareholders.The end of the line?Even today, there are numerous different ways to buy train tickets. And that’s the beauty of Trainline. Instead of a patchwork of ticket sellers, travellers get a joined-up system that works well and is easy to use. I know, because I’ve used it, and it’s become my first choice every time.To beat Trainline, GBR is going to have to do the same. So that’s a public sector organisation, offering a well-organised and customer-focused service, that’s as consumer friendly as Trainline? Maybe the Trainline share price isn’t under such a great threat after all.How will GBR go about it? If it put me in charge of the new operation, I’d be tempted to franchise it out to Trainline. I doubt that’ll actually happen. But I do think it could be wise of GBR to find some way to use Trainline’s systems. It would surely be a lot more efficient than starting again from scratch.So, do I sound bullish over the Trainline share price? Actually, I’m not. This is all just upbeat speculation, and I certainly won’t base any investment decisions on it. Right now, it’s all about profit and valuation.Trainline share price valuationIt would be unfair to make valuation judgments based on the company’s 2020-21 results, hammered by the pandemic. The year saw a 79% slump in sales, resulting in an operating loss of £100m. But Trainline’s 2019-20 results had only shown a meagre £2m operating profit. That’s from £261m in revenue, and a pretty thin margin.Adjusted EPS that year came in at 8.1p. On today’s Trainline share price, that’s a P/E of 39, and that’s after the shock share price crash. Prior to this GBR thing, Trainline shares were on a trailing P/E of 53 (again, based on 2019-20 earnings). That’s a hefty growth valuation, and I don’t see where the growth is going to come from. Especially not now. The Trainline share price steadies after Thursday’s 20% crash. Should I buy?

Local schools are greatly oversubscribed,” he said.The Fianna Fáil councillor continued: “Studies and analysis of Limerick secondary schools have been ongoing for a considerable time now. Meanwhile some of Limerick’s secondary schools have indicated their decision to close or amalgamate.“Now, more than ever, Limerick’s Labour Minister for Education must sanction a school at the site provided by local councillors at Mungret College. Minister O’Sullivan has recently acted on my view for the need for new primary school places in the area. She must now act and provide a new secondary school in Mungret.”However, Adare-Rathkeale councillor Emmett O’Brien (IND) disagrees.“Schools are shutting down in the city centre; you have St Enda’s and Scoil Carmel closing down, and the Salesians and St Nessan’s amalgamating, then on the other hand you have this proposal to build a new school on the outskirts of the city.”Cllr O’Brien also pointed out that there has been “ongoing deadlock” with regard to plans to provide a new secondary school in Croom, which he says is urgently needed.He concluded: “In Croom you have students being taught out in prefabs. There needs to be progress now on getting them into a proper school rather than building a new school in Mungret.”A spokesperson for the Department of Education told the Limerick Post that work is now underway on its next nationwide five-year construction plan for primary and secondary schools.The spokesperson explained: “A nationwide demographic exercise is again being carried out to see where we need more primary provision post 2015 and more post-primary provision post 2016.This is a significant exercise that involves identifying areas where there is a substantial increase in the child birth rate and, consequently, growing demands for both primary and post primary school places. The capacity of existing schools to meet this growing demand has to be examined for all areas of the country.” Consultation process on a new action plan for apprenticeship launched

A net sampling survey was conducted around the island of South Georgia in the austral summer 1981/1982 and again in winter 1983. This paper uses Principal Components Analysis to elucidate the mesoscale features of zooplankton distribution within the two survey grids. During both surveys the major contrast was between the plankton of the shelf and the surrounding ocean. However, within the oceanic part of each grid, localized areas of warmer water were inhabited by a fauna characteristics of warmer latitudes to the north. The biological and oceanographic evidence suggests that areas represents core rings or similar intrusions from north of the Polar Front. Not all of the characteristic warm- and cold-water species showed a clear correlation with water origin. For example, the swarming behaviour of Euphausia superba limited its usefulness as a mesoscale tracer. Likewise, the distribution of the Antarctic copepod Calanoides acutus was poorly related to water temperature during the summer survey because the timing of sampling coincided with its annual spawning cycle. Large-scale movement of oceanic fronts has already been identified as being important in dictating overall species composition around the island, but at a smaller scale these intrusions of warmer water may be an important intermediary mechanism of community advection into the area.
Bakery chain Greggs delivered a shock trading update this morning to reveal that its full-year profits would be ahead of analysts’ expectations.Chief executive Roger Whiteside said customers were ‘responding’ to improvements in products and services – as it unveiled own shop like-for-like sales (LFLs) growth of 5.2% for the 24 weeks to 13 December, compared with growth of just 0.7% in the same period last year.For the year-to-date LFLs were up 4.2%, added Greggs, significantly better than the -1.1% decline seen in the same period in 2013.Total sales were also up by 3.6%.Whiteside said: “The strong performance that we reported in our September IMS has continued. Trading conditions have remained helpful, but there is no doubt that customers are also responding to improvements in our product and service offer and to the investment we are making in the shop environment.“Whilst there is still much to play for over the final few weeks of the year, we currently anticipate that full-year profits will be ahead of analysts’ expectations.”The company said it would also update the market following its Christmas trading period and ahead of its full-year results.
The crowd that filed quietly into Regina Chapel on Tuesday filled the room with green – they wore bright green shirts and pinned small green ribbon to their tops. They came to remember Saint Mary’s sophomore Ziqi Zhang. Zhang, 19, who died last week from injuries sustained in an accident between her bike and an SUV outside the entrance to the College on State Route 933. Green was her favorite color. But even as they filled the chapel with green, they also filled the room with stories. During the service, faculty, staff and students from Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s stood one after another and shared their memories of an international student who had been their friend. A resident of Regina Hall, Zhang was a dual-degree student majoring in mathematics at Saint Mary’s and taking engineering classes at Notre Dame. She was a resident of Jiangsu Province in China. International student Ariane Umutoni met Zhang shortly after the two arrived at Saint Mary’s. She remembered Zhang as fearless while they discovered America together. “I remember going to the beach with her in Michigan,” Umutoni said. “There were big stones. … She was like, ‘I want a picture there.’ I said, ‘That’s dangerous,’ and she said, ‘Let’s take a chance.’ I was so scared, but she wasn’t. “That was Ziqi.” Umotoni asked the Saint Mary’s community to come together as a family during a time of need and grief. “We need you,” she said. “Some of us are far from home. You cannot imagine how my family is feeling to know that they have not seen me in so long and such a thing can happen. We need each and every one here. “We’ll hold hands, mourn together, cry together, share memories and just be a family,” she said. The stories from Zhang’s friends prompted both tears and laughter during the service. Paige Edmonds was Zhang’s resident assistant during her freshman year. She joked about a resident she said was both curious and warm. “She was one of those freshman that the questions you think you’re never gonna get asked as an RA, she asked them,” Edmonds said. “She was the type of resident who when you had a section event, would come knock on my door the next day and ask where everyone was. But she definitely challenged me to grow as a person. … Remember her smile.” Saint Mary’s graduate Chen Chen recalled a story she heard about Zhang before the two had even met. A mutual friend brought Zhang to pick up the keys to her dorm room on her first day at Saint Mary’s, but when they went to open the door, they had some trouble with the lock. “Ziqi just whipped out a toolkit … and started seriously working on trying to break into her room,” Chen said. “So I got really excited, and the first thing that came to my mind, I got to tell this story to Dr. Barstis, who is the engineering advisor, to let her know that we have a student who has the right engineering spirit. … That’s basically how she got to the engineering program.” Other professors and friends recalled Zhang as constantly smiling and always willing to push her limits for new experiences. They talked about an excellent student newly fascinated by philosophy and dedicated to her studies. They remembered a girl excited to return home to China over winter break for the first time since she had left for college. Notre Dame sophomore Christine Nie said she came from the same city as Zhang in China, but only met her after they came to South Bend. She remembered feeling at home hearing Zhang speak their first language with the same distinct accent as her family members and friends in China. “I thought even though she couldn’t stay in this beautiful world, as a girl of the same age and of the same city and of similar background, I can live this life for her,” she said through tears. Elaine Meyer-Lee, director of the Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership (CWIL), read an email from Zhang’s parents to Dr. Alice Yang, director for global education. Another Chinese-speaking professor had translated the letter. “We lost our precious daughter,” they wrote. “She was our pride and joy. She longed for this wonder country of America, and we wish that she could have completed her studies, learned the sciences and humanities so that she could have played a worthy role in the betterment of the entire human race.” College President Carol Ann Mooney also wore bright green as she addressed the crowd gathered in the chapel. “Each of us has lost a sister,” Mooney said. “It is terribly difficult to lose a young person with so much talent and so much promise. Ziqi’s death leaves a hole in the Saint Mary’s community.” Zhang’s family is working to obtain passports and visas to come to the United States, Mooney said. Donations to help the family with funeral and travel expenses may be sent to Karen Johnson, vice president of Student Affairs, in 175 Le Mans Hall. Checks should be payable to Saint Mary’s College and indicate in the memo line that the donation is for the Ziqi Zhang family. “For her family, this is an unspeakable grief. … Our hearts break for her parents, her sister and her good friends and family in China,” Mooney said. Student Affairs is also collecting notes for Zhang’s family at the same address. The notes will be translated and delivered to her family when they arrive in the United States. “When they arrive on our campus, we will make every effort to let them know how valued Ziqi was, what a positive contribution to Saint Mary’s she was and that she had a home here.”
Known as the Donald R. Keough School of Global Affairs, Notre Dame’s first new school in nearly a century opened this fall.Intended for both undergraduate and graduate students, the Keough School’s website said the school is focused on advancing integral human development through research, policy and practice. After the University announced its creation in 2014, history professor R. Scott Appleby was named the Marilyn Keough dean of the school.“The Keough School is a key player in fulfilling the University’s goal of internationalization,” Appleby said in an email. “All of Notre Dame’s college and schools, as well as Notre Dame International, are active and important participants in this effort.”According to the Keough School’s website, the school, which is based in the newly-constructed Jenkins and Nanovic Halls, addresses topics such as poverty, war, disease, political oppression, environmental degradation and other threats to dignity and human flourishing.Appleby said this year the school will focus on faculty, students and global policy studies in addition to working on new programs: one for undergraduates and one in policy studies with both a presence in Washington, D.C. and a network of international experts. The Keough School’s Master program in global affairs is already teaching its first class of students who came from areas across the world.Over the next three to five years, Appleby said the Keough School plans to continue this building phase.“We will continue to build a world class international faculty, welcome hundreds of gifted graduate and undergraduate students into the School and extend our networks of engagement and influence into the worlds of applied research, policy and practice of human rights, good governance, international development, peace-building and related areas,” Appleby said.Ted Beatty, associate dean for academic affairs at the Keough School, said alongside participating in pre-existing programs managed by various institutes that will be expanded in the School, undergraduate students will eventually have the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive program of global affairs.“This program of global affairs will be a program that organizes what [students] do in their majors, supplemental majors or minors, language study, study abroad … in a way that integrates together and forms a coherent program of study,” Beatty said.The pre-existing seven institutes under the Keough School are The Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Notre Dame Initiative for Global Development, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies, the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies and the Nanovic Institute for European Studies.“One thing the Keough School does is re-organize those [institutes] together under one roof,” Beatty said. “We inherit some programs from the institutes. We’ll then build up from those and create some exciting new opportunities for Notre Dame undergraduates.”Appleby said he expects the full-fledged undergraduate program — which will aim to complement and globalize the disciplinary major — will begin with a relatively small number of students next year before growing in the coming years.“Short of enrolling in the full program, or in a supplementary major or minor in the Keough School, undergrads can also take individual courses offered by the School,” Appleby said. “In addition, there are and will be an array of extracurricular options for students, ranging from guest lectures and mini-seminars led by prominent world leaders, to applied research opportunities designed to complement regular coursework and stimulate global thinking.”After three years of “frenetic planning and recruiting” with the seven institutes and colleagues from Notre Dame’s other colleges and schools, Appleby said the Keough School received a new burst of energy upon its opening.“I am heartened but not surprised by the excitement and enthusiasm generated by the opening of the Keough School — expressions of which arrive daily from the Notre Dame family of alums and other fervent supporters, as well as from peers at other universities in the United States and around the world,” Appleby said.As for long-term goals, Appleby said he looks forward to seeing his successor leverage the resources that Notre Dame and its supporters have provided.“I’d wager that before too long, the Keough School and its faculty and graduates will be recognized as a world leader in placing human dignity at the center of every effort to build peace, heal the afflicted, stimulate economic growth and ensure education and security for the most vulnerable populations on the planet,” Appleby said.Tags: kellogg institute for international studies, Keough School of Global Affairs, Kroc Institute
South Korean governor opposes plans to keep local coal plants open FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Chosun Ilbo:South Chungcheong Province, which is home to around half of Korea’s coal-fired power plants, is committed to phasing out the heavily polluting power source, even as the central government wants to hike coal power production to make up for its nuclear phaseout.South Chungcheong Province Governor Yang Seung-jo, who is affiliated with the ruling Minjoo Party, told the Chosun Ilbo on Wednesday, “We need to halt steps to extend the lifespan of aging coal-fired plants” since that would worsen already alarming air pollution.Boryeong, Dangjin, Seocheon and Taean in South Chungcheong Province are home to 30 out of Korea’s 61 coal-fired power plants. Two plants in Boryeong are more than 30 years old and 10 others were built over two decades ago.The governor believes the health of locals is at risk from the emission from these aging plants. “The amount of atmospheric pollution in the province is the highest in the country at 280,000 tons as of 2015,” Yang said. Yang added that decades-old plants must be shut down and transformed into eco-friendly power plants.The state-run Korea Development Institute claims refurbishing the plants could extend their lifespan by another 10 years to 2041. The cost of refurbishment is estimated at W1.51 trillion (US$1=W1,130).More: South Chungcheong governor resists gov’t’s coal power plans
Here are 12 snowless adventures that will keep your winter wanderlust satisfied till it’s snowing or springtime.Lukewarm50°F – 60°FSend sandstone. Now that the swarms of fall break tourists have retreated back to their respective climbing gyms, the crags are blissfully quiet. For the truly dedicated climber, winter is one of the best seasons for climbing in the Southeast. Active bodies stay cooler, feet sweat less, and rubber soles grip better. Walls that are normally too exposed and too hot to climb in the summer become the perfect spots to post up for an afternoon of winter cragging.Where to go: Chattanooga, Tenn., has it all: classic cracks, plentiful boulderfields, climber-friendly hostels like the The Crash Pad, and a youthful downtown scene to boot. Tennessee Wall (trad), Sunset Park (trad), Foster Falls (sport), and Stone Fort (boulder) have the highest concentration of quality routes close to town. For a truly unique bouldering experience, take your chances with the weather and head north to Summersville Lake, a popular sport climbing destination outside of Fayetteville, W.Va. In the wintertime, the lake level drops and exposes huge swaths of shoreline littered with boulders.Grind gravel. Swap out the fat tires this winter and get on board with one of the fastest growing sectors of the bike industry, gravel riding. Over the past five years, gravel grinding has matured from a quiet niche to a respected cycling discipline unto its own. Why? Because churning out long days in the saddle over mixed terrain taps into the very core of what it means to be human—adventure, adversity, accomplishment. It’s hard not to feel satisfied after covering some major ground through sheer will and pedal power.Where to go: Whip out a map and connect as many Forest Service roads as you can for a DIY adventure. For those just starting out, Ride With GPS has a number of routes that trace some of the area’s best gravel grinding races like the Stokesville Strade (Virginia) and the Bootlegger 100 (North Carolina), both of which take place in the spring.Lap rivers. While paddlers out west have long hung up their dry suits for ski pants, boaters here are just starting to ramp things up. Though most people associate springtime with rain, the winter months of December and January can bring just as much rainfall. In Brevard, N.C., for example, home of the rowdy Horsepasture River (class V), December (6.38 inches) is the third wettest month after March (6.5 inches) and January (6.42 inches).Where to go: Even though the recreational release season is over, dam-controlled rivers like the Russell Fork in Kentucky can still be expected to flow. Other regional rivers that regularly run in the wintertime include the Watauga River near Boone, N.C., the Top Yough outside of Friendsville, Md., and Wilson Creek near Morganton, N.C. These sections of river are all less than five miles in length, so lap them till the sun goes down for a full day of whitewater.Catch the giants. For years, seasoned “catmen” have trolled river channels and lakes during the winter months in search of mammoth catfish. Until recently, these dutiful few had the water all to themselves, but it’s now widely regarded in the angling community that late fall and winter can provide some prime conditions for landing blue, channel, and white cats. Follow schools of shad and look for deep holes in the main river channel during the day or shallow flats at night.Where to go: Virginia’s James River is home to some really big blue cats ranging anywhere from 30 to 50 pounds in size. But for the really really big cats, journey south to Tennessee’s Lake Barkley, where the state-record blue catfish (caught in 1998) weighed in at 112 pounds, just 4 pounds shy of the current world record. Kentucky Lake, which is just west of Lake Barkley, is also a premier catfishing destination.A PADDLER NAVIGATES THE BOULDER-STREWN WATERS OF THE RUSSELL FORK GORGE IN KENTUCKY.[nextpage title=”Read on!”]Cool40°F – 50°FDo a cold dip. Admittedly, taking a plunge in freezing cold water in the dead of winter sounds counterintuitive (if not downright ludicrous). And despite the numerous health benefits claimed by ardent dippers—a boost to the immune system, improvements to cardiovascular circulation, and an increased metabolism, just to name a few—cold dips shouldn’t be considered a magical cure-all, especially for those with a family history of heart conditions. That’s not to say that cold dips are unsafe. People have been “winter bathing” since the famed publisher Bernarr MacFadden founded Coney Island Polar Bear Club in 1903. If nothing else, cold-water submersion is certainly refreshing and invigorating. When done with a crowd of half-naked or costumed strangers, the experience can be entirely too much fun and strangely unifying. Just be sure to check with your doctor before taking the plunge, and no cannonballs.Where to go: Next month, thousands of people will start the New Year off with a polar plunge. Lake Lure and Atlantic Beach, N.C., organize their cold dips on the first of the year, while other events like WinterFest at Chetola Resort will host a polar plunge later in January. If you need a good reason to freeze, Special Olympics Virginia also puts on its Polar Plunge Festival series starting December 2, 2017, in Charlottesville, Va., and continuing throughout 2018 in Radford, Richmond, Dumfries, and Virginia Beach.Plan a backpacking trip. Hardcore winter camping—the kind where you’re post-holing for miles in knee-deep snow, wiping your butt with snowballs, and putting on frozen boots in the morning—is not for everyone (or really anyone). It’s what we call “type II fun” : miserable in the moment yet somehow quixotic when the suffering is (way far) behind you. Have some “type I fun” instead this winter by taking a backpacking trip in tolerably cool weather. You’ll be moving enough to stay warm during the day and it’s cold enough to justify building a campfire and sipping on whiskey at night.FREE WEEKEND? CHECK. CAMPING GEAR? CHECK. PUPPY SNUGGLES? CHECK.Where to go: If magical evergreen forests are what you’re after, head to the Cranberry Wilderness near Richwood, W.Va. Because it’s a wilderness area, you won’t find much in the way of trail signage and the trails themselves will likely be overgrown or barricaded in spider webs. Bring hard maps and extra socks. If big mountain views are more to your liking, head south to Panthertown Valley in North Carolina’s Nantahala National Forest. The 6,300-acre recreation area is pockmarked with massive granite walls and equally stunning waterfalls, some of which form the headwaters of the Tuckasegee River.Head to the coast.Maybe it feels like a copout to head to the coast when the weather turns sour, but hey, if birds can do it, so can we. With the beachgoing madness long in the rearview mirror, oceanfront lodging can actually be affordable and the atmosphere quite pleasant. Though much of the beachfront in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic is covered up in boardwalks and development, there are many miles of protected coastline to remind us of how special and important our beaches are. Where to go: We like South Carolina for its diverse landscape: estuaries, sand dunes, freshwater wetlands, bottomland hardwood swamps, longleaf pine forests. Explore Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge by boat and watch for sightings of alligators bathing and wintering black skimmers feasting. Boneyard Beach on Bulls Island is best seen at sunrise, where sun bleached remnants of oak trees rise impossibly from the sand like a forest of skeletons.[nextpage title=”Read on!”]Cold32°F – 40°FHit the trail.As the mercury drops on the thermometer and daylight fades faster, a quick midday trail run can be a godsend, even if you don’t necessarily like running. Make time, at least a half hour, to get outside and burn some steam. Even if it’s cold and raining, it won’t take long to get the blood pumping.Where to go: Anywhere! Hopefully you live in an active community like Asheville, N.C., or Roanoke, Va., where greenways and trail systems (like Bent Creek Experimental Forest outside of Asheville or Mill Mountain Park in Roanoke) are just minutes from downtown. If you can’t get motivated on your own, find a friend. Both of these cities have well established running scenes that regularly host group runs nearly every night of the week. Fleet Feet Sports has locations in both Asheville and Roanoke, and their weekly pub runs are a fun way to keep moving.Give back.If you’re anything like us, we know you’ve put some wear and tear on your local trails and rivers in the past year. Why not spend your next Saturday giving back to those places you love so dearly? As national parks, state parks, and the Forest Service continue to struggle with funding, volunteer trail maintenance is needed now more than ever. Step up, give back, and appreciate the hard work that goes into creating and maintaining spaces to go outside and play.Where to go: Start by contacting your local trail or paddling club. In Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, for example, the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition regularly organizes trail maintenance days in the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. Down in Knoxville, Tenn., the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club logs countless hours of volunteer labor on the city’s urban trail system.Search for surf. You don’t have to road trip to the beach to get pitted. Over the past few years, river surfing—that is, surfing on river features with a surfboard or standup paddleboard—has spiked in popularity out west. The good news is that the Southeast has tons of river surfing potential. The bad news is that you usually have to wait till it’s freezing cold and/or raining for the levels to come in. Bring a 3/2mm wetsuit. You’ll need it.THE RIVER TOWN OF FAYETTEVILLE, W.VA., IS LEADING THE CHARGE IN THE SOUTHEAST RIVER SURFING SCENE.Where to go: Fayetteville, W.Va., has always been a hub for whitewater enthusiasts, mostly raft guides and kayakers. But now, standup paddleboarders rival playboaters in numbers when the surf is in. Those who are new to the sport should take a day and hike into the Lower Gauley River for some eddy service surf action at Diagonal Ledges. For the more experienced surfer, head to the New River Dries for high-volume, big (I’m talking terrifyingly big) waves.[nextpage title=”Read on!”]Freezing<32°FGo forest bathing.This used to be called going for a hike, but apparently even those of us who consider ourselves “outdoorsy” were too tuned in to Instagram and too tuned out of nature to fully absorb our surroundings. Enter forest bathing, which does not involve any bathing or water whatsoever. Forest bathing is less of a hike and more of a mindful, meditative wandering. The goal is not to walk far or to even have a destination in mind. By simply being present and paying attention to all of nature’s sounds, smells, sights, and textures, studies show that forest bathers can significantly reduce blood pressure and stress hormones.FOREST BATHING HAS THE POWER TO HEAL OUR SOULS AND ALSO REDUCE BLOOD PRESSURE.Where to go: The beauty of forest bathing is that it literally can be done anywhere there’s a cluster of trees. You don’t need a trail. You don’t need a map. You don’t need to plan a weekend getaway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, either. Find a moderately forested city park close to where you live or work and just be. Be and breathe.Try ice-skating.This is such an easy and affordable way to get the family out, even when it’s bitterly cold. Most skating rinks charge $15 or less for admission and skate rental, with “family of four” packages offering even more of a discount. If you’re an adult and you’ve never tried ice-skating before, this is the year to do it, if not for yourself than for the spirit of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics. You might not be landing seven triple jumps like Michelle Kwan, but at least you’ll have an appreciation for the sport’s graceful athletes.Where to go: Outdoor skating rinks are relatively common up and down the eastern seaboard, so you shouldn’t have to travel far to find one. Wisp Resort’s ice rink at Mountain Park is plenty big at 50’ x 85’ with a bonfire area to keep the kids cozy. Even urban dwellers in most major cities can hit the ice. Holiday on Ice is located smack downtown (or should we say uptown?) in Charlotte, N.C.BONUS ADVENTURE?!?Take a drinking tour.When in doubt, rent a bus (or bribe one of your friends to DD) and drink your winter blues away. With new breweries, cideries, distilleries, and wineries seemingly popping up overnight, you have plenty of destinations to choose from.Where to go: Central Virginia and Western North Carolina are hands down leading the charge when it comes to quantity and quality of craft beverage facilities. Check out Cville Hop On Tours, which shuttles visitors up and down Nelson 151 and the Brew Ridge Trail, home to six Virginian breweries, five wineries, a cidery, and now a distillery. Similarly, Asheville Brewery Tours escorts out-of-towners by passenger van on either a three- or four-stop tour of the city’s many breweries and cideries.
9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr People power organizations. Not products. People. Prudence posits that if we peer into the pates of professionals, there are a plethora of properties particular to each person. These properties, in the presence of positive pressure, progress as people are pushed to pursue their potential. Psychologists propose that each person possesses the power to be part of propelling organizations forward. Organizations participate in this process by perpetually pondering how to put people first. So it seems proper in this post to present postulations aplenty of propitious practices for the propulsion of people toward their potential.My apologies. Every once in a while, like in the preceding paragraph (dang it — did it again) I try the most random — and some might even say nonsensical — things to communicate my points. Like, say, alliterating an entire paragraph just for kicks. For a hot minute there — a really hot minute if you’re into verbiage — I felt like the V for Vendetta guy in one of my favorite scenes of any movie, ever. If only I had a black bath towel to pin around my neck. Of course who I am is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man behind a blog. (See what I did there? If you’re a fan of the movie, you do. If you’re not a fan of the movie…well…never mind.)In a post a while back, I mentioned that one of the components of a constructive culture was that people start to realize what they’re capable of. In other words, they start to realize their potential and push toward it. If I were talking nerdy to you, I’d say they self-actualize, but we’ll not go there. At least not today. continue reading »
A growing number of fintechs and banking startups in the U.S. and other countries is targeting Generation Z, and even reaching into the younger Generation Alpha, children born after 2006.In the U.S., roughly 25% of the population is under 19. In Europe teenagers and younger kids comprise around 20% of the population. This represents a tremendous market, but typically incumbent banks don’t aim many products and services at Gen Z because they aren’t currently profitable. This contrasts with more financially mature Millennials.Newcomers are outflanking incumbents. The legacy institutions’ lack of interest created a two-fold market niche for challenger banks and fintechs: serving the current “pocket money” needs of young people and building the loyalty of today’s youngest customers for the coming years.73% of American parents provide a regular allowance to their children, a total of $41 billion per year, according to RoosterMoney’s Kids Allowance Report. Part of pocket money is earned from domestic chores. Parents say their goal is to teach children about financial literacy, involve them in useful activities and help them to form healthy spending habits. The parents lived through the Great Recession and want to inculcate thrift. Indeed, in comparison to older generations, Gen Zers tend to save almost as much as they tend to spend right away. When they spend, it’s typically on food — mostly sweets, eating out, video games, toys and books. Most Gen Z consumers prefer in-store shopping rather than ecommerce. However, the older they grow, the more online transactions they make. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

“If you want to believe that we in the Netherlands do not have a problem with race, you should go ahead and go home,” Jennifer Tosch, founder of Black Heritage Amsterdam Tours, told a crowd in Amsterdam, from where the Dutch West India Company operated ships estimated to have traded 500,000 slaves in the 1600s and 1700s.Tosch and others drew a comparison between Floyd’s death and the treatment of slaves centuries ago. “We have seen this image before as white persecutors and enslavers held down the enslaved and branded them with an iron.”In London, a protester held a placard reading “The UK isn’t innocent,” while in Berlin around 2,000 people protested outside the US embassy and two Bundesliga soccer players wore “Justice for George Floyd” shirts on Monday.A similar message came from Dominique Sopo, president of French NGO SOS Racisme, which organized a small protest outside the US embassy in Paris on Monday. Topics : “This issue of police racism is also, albeit with a lower level of violence, an issue that concerns France,” he said.Police in northern Paris fired tear gas on Tuesday to disperse demonstrators protesting over the 2016 death of a young black Frenchman in police custody – an incident that has drawn parallels with Floyd’s killing.Adama Traore’s family have blamed excessive force used during his arrest, when the 24-year-old was pinned down by three gendarmes. Successive pathology reports have reached conflicting conclusions over whether his death two hours later resulted from asphyxiation or other factors including pre-existing conditions.Amid a coronavirus lockdown, French activists also say there have been a number of police brutality cases in low-income neighborhoods where many originate from Africa.Clashes in turkeyIn Istanbul, more than 50 people clashed with police officers minutes after beginning a protest over Floyd and what they called police brutality in Turkey.At least five people were detained after scuffles with officers holding shields, after which other protesters gave speeches denouncing lethal police force and bans on demonstrations in Turkey during the pandemic.In Nairobi, protesters at the American embassy held signs reading “Black Lives Matter” and “Stop Extrajudicial Killings”.Organizer Nafula Wafula said violence against blacks is international and cited the killing of prisoners in Kenya.“The system that allows police brutality to happen in Kenya is based on class. In America, it’s race and class.”Protests are planned in coming days in Gambia, Britain, Spain and Portugal.In Spain, protesters will mark the death of Floyd and “all sisters and brothers who have died at the hands of institutional racism on our streets,” the African and Afro-descendant Community CNAAE said.Portugal’s gathering will address “the myth that Portugal is not a racist country”.But not all in Europe side with the protesters.Spain’s far-right Vox party and the Netherlands’ anti-Islam Freedom Party called those protesting Floyd’s death “terrorists” and backed US President Donald Trump.”Our support for Trump and the Americans who are seeing their Nation attacked by street terrorists backed by progressive millionaires,” Vox wrote in a Tweet.In the Netherlands, the Freedom Party’s Geert Wilders tweeted: “White House under attack. This is no protest but anarchy by #AntifaTerrorists.”Even amid such racial division, Linda Nooitmeer, who heads the National Institute for the Study of Dutch Slavery and its Legacy, drew hope from Monday’s protest in Amsterdam.”We don’t have the history of the civil rights movement in Holland, so what occurred yesterday was really something new. It is the start of real dialogue.” Images of a white police officer kneeling on the neck of African-American George Floyd, who then died, have sparked protests from Amsterdam to Nairobi, but they also expose deeper grievances among demonstrators over strained race relations in their own countries.With violent clashes between protesters and authorities raging in the United States, anti-police-brutality activists gathered by the thousands in support of the Black Lives Matter movement in various European and African cities.Peaceful protesters highlighted allegations of abuse of black prisoners by their jailers, social and economic inequality, and institutional racism lingering from the colonial pasts of the Netherlands, Britain and France.

Once on scene, the crew of the RB-S passed two dewatering pumps to the vessel and remained on scene throughout the night with the Candy Store.Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit Lake Charles personnel were dispatched to the scene to investigate and respond to fuel discharge around the partially submerged vessel.
Australian oil and gas company Woodside has informed that gas production has started from its Greater Western Flank Phase 2 (GWF-2) Project, offshore W. Australia.Goodwyn Platform / Image by WoodsideWoodside sanctioned the GWF-2 development in December 2015, earmarking $2 billion for the development located in Commonwealth waters approximately 135 km north-west of Dampier.The GWF-2 will develop 1.6 trillion cubic feet of raw gas (2P 100% project basis) from the combined Keast, Dockrell, Sculptor, Rankin, Lady Nora and Pemberton fields using subsea infrastructure and a 35 km, 16” pipeline connecting to the existing Goodwyn A platform.Woodside CEO Peter Coleman on Thursday said the project has been delivered $630 million below the expected cost of approximately $2.0 billion and six months ahead of schedule.“The project team has done an outstanding job executing and delivering GWF-2, which represents the next phase in gas supply to the NWS Goodwyn A platform, extending the life of the Karratha Gas Plant and contributing to Woodside achieving our targeted production of 100 MMboe in 2020. This success has been achieved by combining the two GWF-2 drilling campaigns, accelerating project work packages and collaborating closely with our contractors.“The capabilities demonstrated on the GWF-2 Project will be carried forward as we embark on our next phase of growth, including our proposed developments of the Scarborough and Browse offshore gas resources.“The Scarborough and Browse projects are part of our vision for the Burrup Hub, which would unlock the future value of the Karratha Gas Plant and Pluto LNG,” he said.The NWS Project participants are: Woodside Energy Ltd (Operator, 16.67%); BHP Billiton Petroleum (North West Shelf) Pty Ltd (16.67%); BP Developments Australia Pty Ltd (16.67%); Chevron Australia Pty Ltd (16.67%); Japan Australia LNG (MIMI) Pty Ltd (16.67%); and Shell Australia Pty Ltd (16.67%).
Russian company, Sovcomflot, has withdrawn redelivery notice for Vyacheslav Tikhonov seismic vessel with Polarcus. The vessel, originally named Polarcus Selma, has been on a long-term charter with Sovcomflot since delivery from the yard in 2011. The Vyacheslav Tikhonov is a high ice class 8 streamer vessel suited for 3D XArray exploration requiring cable separations of 160 to 200 meters. It was built to the Ulstein SX133 design and incorporated the Ulstein X-Bow hull. Polarcus will not receive charter hire from 31 May 2020 until startup of a new project anticipated to start in Q3 2020. In December of last year the companies agreed to postpone the redelivery of the vessel until the completion of work which Sovcomflot secured in Asia. The redelivery was expected in Q2 2020, but Sovcomflot decided to withdraw notice of redelivery in light of further project opportunities, after it completed the project in Asia. Redelivery of the vessel is now expected to be following completion of the new project, or alternatively, on short notice if no project is awarded for the vessel in the summer season, the company noted.
NewsHub 21 September 2016Hospices have told told Parliament’s health select committee that they oppose changing the law to allow voluntary euthanasia.The committee is listening to public opinion on voluntary euthanasia and will report its conclusions to Parliament in response to a petition asking for a law change.On Wednesday Andrew Leys, chief executive of Hospice Southland, said his team was extremely concerned about a possible law change.He told the committee hospice workers often faced questions about euthanasia from patients.“The vast majority move beyond the point of wanting euthanasia,” he said.“My team is concerned that voluntary euthanasia could lead to less support for people to help them cope with their circumstances.”Mary Potter Hospice director Brian Ensor said hospices would have to be kept entirely seperate from any assisted dying.“The last days of living should be made as comfortable as possible, and it may involve sedation,” he said.READ MORE: http://www.newshub.co.nz/politics/hospices-against-euthanasia-mps-told-2016092115

Kahlenberg, who played 47 matches for Denmark between 2003 and 2014 and also played for clubs Auxerre and VfL Wolfsburg before retiring in 2017, tested positive on Thursday and has been in quarantine, Brondby said in a statement. The statement said Kahlenberg, who played for Denmark at the 2010 World Cup, was infected during a visit to Amsterdam.

Poulsen won’t be on Ajax’s bench this weekend The trio must stay at home until next Friday after Poulsen came in contact with former Danish international Thomas Kahlenberg, who has since been diagnosed with the virus. Kahlenberg was celebrating Poulsen’s 40th birthday in the Netherlands last Sunday. The other two are exercise physiologist Alessandro Schoenmaker and an unnamed physiotherapist who were also at the party. “They have no symptoms and if it stays that way they will return to work next week,” an Ajax spokesman told Dutch media.

Jol is waiting to discover whether Cameroon international midfielder Eyong Enoh will be fit for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Aston Villa. Enoh limped off in Fulham’s defeat at Newcastle last week and Jol said: “We will do an assesment tomorrow. He could probably play but we are not sure yet.” Fulham head to Villa Park with Jol believing the club need one more win to guarantee their top flight place for next season. The Lilywhites face a Villa side battling for their own survival, with Paul Lambert’s men just two points above the relegation zone. “I feel we need another win because you never know. Realistically we are fine but if everyone else starts winning in the last six or seven matches then you could have a problem,” Jol said. “Hopefully we will get a couple of results in the next week or so. Overall we have done well away from home. There have maybe been too many draws and even at Newcastle we could have done better. It is disappointing to concede in the 93rd minute. “They [Villa] have got quality. They have (Christian) Beneteke, (Gabriel) Agbonlahor, even (Darren) Bent on the bench. If you look at their results, especially at home, they are OK.” Injured Fulham midfielder Ashkan Dejagah will miss the rest of the Barclays Premier League season, manager Martin Jol has confirmed. Dejagah requires an operation to repair ankle ligament damage suffered when he collided with an advertising hoarding in Fulham’s 3-2 victory over QPR on April 1. The Iranian will go under the knife next week and he will not play again this campaign. “Ashkan Dejagah needs an operation on his ankle ligament. That will be next week and I think he will be out for the rest of the season,” Jol said. Press Association
The club’s longest-serving player appeared to be heading for a January exit after being sent to train with the Under-21s by Bruce for undisclosed disciplinary reasons, but relations have thawed and McShane has ousted Curtis Davies from the side. He admits he expected to leave and is delighted to be back in favour. “Football, it’s mad, it’s a crazy game sometimes,” he said. “I thought I’d played my last game for Hull. I was prepared to leave in the transfer window. “But I didn’t want to go, no way, it felt wrong to think about going, and now it’s great to be back playing, especially in a couple of good games with some big results.” The flipside of Hull’s renewed optimism is starkly evident at Villa, who dropped into the bottom three after finding no response to goals from Nikica Jelavic and full debutant Dame N’Doye. Villa are winless in 10 league outings and have scored just once in their last eight. They turned in a timid display at the KC Stadium and were warned by boss Paul Lambert afterwards that they were now playing for their top-flight careers. Right-back Alan Hutton is hoping that descending into the drop zone can jolt the squad to life. “It’s very difficult to take, Hull was a big game for us so to be beaten 2-0 is hard,” the Scot told Press Association Sport. “You’re always aware of the table and maybe slipping into the bottom three is the kick in the backside we need. “We have been playing well but not getting results and we need to change that quickly. “We all know we have to do our bit to get the goals, it’s a team game and we’ll take that on the chin as a team. “There’s pressure on every game now because we need to get going.” Press Association Phelan began work as Steve Bruce’s right-hand man just a week ago but his arrival has coincided with an immediate upturn in form for the Tigers. Having spent the majority of his coaching career hunting silverware alongside Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, Hull’s relegation battle represented unfamiliar territory for Phelan. But he has thrown himself into the task and the initial results, a surprise 1-1 draw at Manchester City at the weekend followed by Tuesday’s crucial 2-0 win over Aston Villa, have helped Hull climb out of the bottom three. And Phelan’s early impact has not gone unnoticed among the players. “Mike’s been really good already, we’ve just been saying in the dressing room he’s going to win the first assistant manager of the month!” defender Paul McShane told Press Association Sport. “He’s done very well, the sessions we’ve had with him have been really good. “He’s brought something new and different to the group and training has been intense. “It’s been tough but the lads are really putting it all in during training and that’s showing out on the pitch. “It’s been a great few days because if we didn’t back up what we did at City it would have been a waste. But we’ve built on that result and got the three points at home.” McShane’s return to action has been another common theme in Hull’s last two performances. Hull’s players have an ointed newly-arrived Mike Phelan as the Barclays Premier League’s first “assistant manager of the month”.

By Simon EvansMANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – FIFA wants VAR video reviews to be applied in the same way across all competitions, as they take over direct responsibility for the system.Issues concerning VAR have been handled primarily by IFAB, the game’s law-making body, during the system’s two-year experimental phase and its introduction as part of the laws of the game.Soccer’s global governing body FIFA, however, took over the role of supporting competition organisers with the implementation of VAR from July 1.Pierluigi Collina, the Italian former World Cup referee and chairman of FIFA’s Referees’ Committee, told Reuters the move was a “natural transition”.“IFAB as an organisation has the duty to govern the laws of football, including VAR and the protocol and regulations. Once the laws of the game are set, IFAB’s job is over,” he said. “It is then FIFA that deals with referees’ education around the world supporting all the member associations.”Issues concerning VAR have been handled primarily by IFAB, the game’s law-making body, during the system’s two-year experimental phase and its introduction as part of the laws of the game.Soccer’s global governing body FIFA, however, took over the role of supporting competition organisers with the implementation of VAR from July 1.Pierluigi Collina, the Italian former World Cup referee and chairman of FIFA’s Referees’ Committee, told Reuters the move was a “natural transition”. “IFAB as an organisation has the duty to govern the laws of football, including VAR and the protocol and regulations. Once the laws of the game are set, IFAB’s job is over,” he said.“It is then FIFA that deals with referees’ education around the world supporting all the member associations.”There have been some variations in the use of VAR in different competitions and national leagues, but Collina said there should be a uniform approach. “Another responsibility of FIFA’s is to have the laws of the game implemented all over the world in the same way, there cannot be different implementation of the laws of the game in different continents or different countries. Our responsibility is to ensure that football is played in the same way all over the world.“Can you imagine in international competition played by teams who are used to having different interpretations of the laws of the game in their domestic competition? Saying that VAR should be used in the same way all over the world is something obvious.“Of course there can be some small differences, but the general implementation should be the same. “It is FIFA and IFAB’s responsibility to have the game played the same way across the world, for the benefit of those who are playing,” he said.The Premier League has not used VAR to check for encroachment off the line by goalkeepers during penalty kicks despite that element being part of the protocol.Speaking generally, Collina said FIFA wanted to avoid situations where players in an international tournament faced surprise decisions. “If something is written in the laws of the game, it has to be implemented everywhere, otherwise can you imagine the surprise of someone who is penalised for something in an international game that he is not penalised for at home?“Maybe they would not be aware of what they can do? If something in the laws of the game doesn’t work, then it is discussed and eventually changed by IFAB,” he said.

England midfielder Frank Lampard has retired from international football after winning 106 caps.The 36-year-old was released by Chelsea in May after 13 years at the London club and he signed for New York City before agreeing to move to Manchester City on a six-month loan deal.Lampard scored 29 goals for England and captained the team in their last group match against Costa Rica at this year’s World Cup in Brazil.”I have taken the decision to retire from international football,” he said in a statement on Tuesday.”It has been a very tough decision for me to make which is why I have given it so much thought since the World Cup. I have always been exceptionally proud and honoured to represent my country and have to say looking back I have enjoyed every minute of wearing the England shirt.”Lampard said it was time put his family first given that he was soon to be playing in the United States. “Also, to concentrate on how I can perform consistently to the best of my abilities over my next few years in club football,” he added.”It is now the time to move forward and I feel very confident that with Roy Hodgson in charge, the young players that we have coming through, and the changes that are being made throughout the development of the youth system in this country, that we will have success in the future and a team that this country deserves.”England captain Steven Gerrard ended his long international career last month.Lampard made his international debut against Belgium in 1999, going on to play at three World Cups and two European Championships.He make headlines at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa when he had a goal wrongly disallowed in a second-round clash with Germany, a match England went on to lose 4-1.
PLAYA VISTA >> The first month of the NBA schedule isn’t particularly kind to the Clippers. They play four sets of back-to-backs. They travel to Portland, to Memphis, to San Antonio, to Oklahoma City, to Minnesota, to Sacramento, to Dallas, to Detroit, to Indiana and to Brooklyn. The schedule allows for less than a handful of practices.But, in a calendar packed with 19 games in 34 days, coach Doc Rivers might actually have gotten a little lucky. The NBA’s schedule-makers gave him the perfect chance to reinforce the thing the Clippers have spoken about since their very first team meeting in training camp.The Clippers better rebound. If they don’t, their opponents absolutely will.Their first four opponents — Portland, Utah, who they play Sunday, Phoenix and Oklahoma City — all finished in the top seven in offensive rebounding percentage last season. The Clippers were the third-worst defensive rebounding team a year ago. Last year, the Clippers grabbed 15 or more offensive rebounds only four times. “That is not a focus,” Rivers said. “I want to be a better offensive rebounding team, don’t get me wrong. I’d rather not give up points the other way. That statistically is a fact. We know that to be true. “… If they’re under the basket, we want you to go after it. But if you don’t get it, you got to get back.”Bench steps upThe Clippers’ second unit continued to receive praise for its performance in the win at Portland. “I think our second unit really played well defensively the other night,” Jordan said. “They’re guarding Chris Paul, J.J. Redick and Blake Griffin every day, so it’s definitely going to be a challenge. But I think they did a great job defensively finishing off possessions and limiting those guys to one shot the other night.”Jamal Crawford said the bench played “agenda-free” basketball after his team won in Portland, and Saturday before practice, he continued to speak highly of their play. “Guys who understand their role I think is really, really key for us, because everybody has the right attitude and the right mindset,” Crawford said. “I feel like we’re one of the better second units in the league, even though we haven’t been together that long. If we can just keep getting better and better and keep getting more defined in our roles, I think we’ll be great.”Quick hitsBrice Johnson (back) and Paul Pierce (ankle) are both listed as “Out” on the Clippers’ injury report. … Alan Anderson (ankle) was healthy enough to play Thursday in Portland, but he, along with Brandon Bass and rookie Diamond Stone, didn’t see action. Thursday, they passed the first test, keeping Portland from winning the rebounding battles (the teams tied). But, Rivers said, they should’ve been better. “The ones that we can get, we have to get. I think we had six of them — we do our own count — that we should have got that we didn’t in the Portland game. That’s a lot actually,” Rivers said. “…Those are the ones we still have to get. And we watch film on rebounding now and that’s important.”The Clippers don’t need to see Utah on tape to know what’s in store for them Sunday afternoon in their home opener at Staples Center. They just need to look across the court at 7-foot-1 Rudy Gobert.“I mean, they got damn near one of the tallest guys in the league in Rudy, and he crashes the glass hard,” DeAndre Jordan said. “Now that (Derrick) Favors is back, he’s going to do the same thing…Whenever we can force those guys to one shot, don’t let them get a second one.”The Clippers have even discussed offensive rebounding, never part of Rivers’ coaching foundation. And while, he said it’s still not a priority, his team still managed to grab 15 offensive rebounds in its season-opening win at Portland. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
Rings are on the menu. #WorldSeries pic.twitter.com/X7VMCu7Lqf— MLB (@MLB) October 29, 2018 Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start For all the criticism of Dave Roberts’ pitching decisions – they weren’t good – it was a lack of offense that did sink the Dodgers ultimately.They hit a weak .180 (34 for 189) in the World Series and were outscored 28-16 by the team that led baseball in runs scored this season. When it came time to adjust against a steady diet of good pitching, the National League’s home run leaders failed to do it adequately and slugged only occasionally.With Price pitching on short rest in Game 5, the Dodgers’ goal was to drive up his pitch count and get him out of the game or capitalize on his fatigue. That never materialized. They went down on fewer than 10 pitches four times in the first seven innings against Price, keeping his pitch count low enough for him to pitch into the eighth inning and hand the ball where he handed the ball to Joe Kelly.The Dodgers didn’t even put a ball in play over the final two innings. Kelly struck out three Dodgers in a row in the eighth. Chris Sale did the same in the ninth. Freese’s gifted triple was the Dodgers’ last hit until next spring.“I expect us to be back here next year – but celebrating on the field,” Roberts said.

Everybody feels sad. But we didn’t do the things to win a championship.”It took the longest game in the history of the World Series for the Dodgers to even get one victory in this Series. Their wait for a title will go into a 31st year and another blue October will be remembered for the slumped shoulders of Clayton Kershaw.Whatever demons have denied Los Angeles for three decades now have saved their most pointed torment for Kershaw.“Disappointed. Yeah, just disappointed, I think,” Kershaw said when asked his emotions after coming up short in October again. “There’s only one team that can win and we know that. But it just hurts worse when you make it all the way and get second place. So having done that two years in a row now – it doesn’t make it any easier.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco PreviousThe Boston Red Sox celebrate after defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in game five of the World Series at Dodger Stadium on Sunday, October 28, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)NextShow Caption1 of 95ExpandLOS ANGELES — A year ago, the Dodgers trudged off into the winter with no regrets, at least none that they would admit.They were just as good as the Houston Astros, they believed, just as worthy of a championship. It had eluded them but they would return to claim what they felt they deserved.It’s going to be hard to convince themselves of that this time.The World Series mulligan they craved lasted just five games. The Boston Red Sox dismissed them in Game 5 on Sunday, hitting four home runs (two by Series MVP Steve Pearce) in a 5-1 victory to claim their fourth World Series title in the past 15 years. No longer the Superman who had tried to will the Dodgers to a championship in the past, this Kershaw with the diminished velocity gave up three home runs Sunday – a two-run shot to Pearce in the first inning, putting the Dodgers down to stay, and solo homers to Mookie Betts (ending an 0-for-13 slide) and J.D. Martinez.“I thought honestly Kersh was throwing a good game,” Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes said. “Solo homers got us in the end. He kept us tight, 2-1, for most of the game. Then a couple mistakes to a really good team over there. They have a good lineup. They make you pay. I thought we were doing a pretty good job, for the most part. They just kind of outslugged us.”Pitching in a postseason game that could end the Dodgers’ season for the 10th time (thesixth start), Kershaw now has a 5.40 ERA in those games. Six of the 10 were season-ending losses for the Dodgers and Kershaw has given up eight home runs in those potential elimination games, more than any other pitcher in history.In his six starts in those elimination games, Kershaw has a 6.06 ERA. According to Baseball-Reference.com, only 24 pitchers in baseball history have started four or more elimination games for their team. None have an ERA as high as Kershaw in those must-win situations.“He doesn’t quit, man. He’s one of the best,” said Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, Kershaw’s teammate in six painful Octobers now. “People need to be grateful to see a pitcher like that in their generation. We might not see another one in a while. He might go down as one of the best lefties to ever play this game.“Yes, we struggle. You can say whatever. You can say we struggle in the postseason or whatever. Still, I’m proud of Kersh. I’m proud of how he competes. He never gives up. He goes out there and competes and tries to lift his team. Sometimes it doesn’t go your way and you fall short. But that’s what gets us better. I know that Kersh is going to keep motivating himself and try to get back here on this stage next year. That’s what we’re going to do now.”Whether Kershaw makes that effort in a Dodgers’ uniform remains the first off-season question the team needs to answer. After Sunday’s loss, Kershaw again said he has not made a decision on his opt-out clause, saying he has three days to decide whether to use it – correcting himself from earlier this month when he thought it was a 10-day window after the end of the World Series.“I’ve got three days now to think about all of that stuff before anything happens,” Kershaw said. “So it will be an eventful three days for me and I’ll try to figure it out.”The postseason redemption Kershaw must crave belongs to Red Sox left-hander David Price this fall. Pitching on short rest, Price held the Dodgers to three hits over seven innings in Game 5, claiming his second victory in the Series. Two of the hits in Game 5 came from David Freese, placed in the leadoff spot because the Dodgers didn’t know how long the left-handed Price would go before being replaced by a right-handed reliever.Freese did his part. He homered off Price in the first inning and legged out a triple in the third when right fielder J.D. Martinez lost his deep fly ball in the dusky sky.But the Dodgers stranded Freese at third after that gift, their only at-bats with runners in scoring position in Game 5. That was just as well. They hit .200 (4 for 20) with RISP in this series and a dreadful .192 (20 for 104) in the postseason – a number remarkable for not having sunk their chances earlier.Related Articles Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies #WorldSeries hero?

“We are all aware of the difficult situation we are going through,” were Lewandowski’s words about it. “Now we all play on the same team. Let’s be strong in this fight. If we can help someone, let’s do it. This situation affects each and every one of us. So we beg you: obey the precautionary rules and listen to those who know about this. Be responsible. We are convinced that soon we will be able to return to our normal life. We are in this situation together and we will overcome it with everyone’s help, “he concluded. Robert Lewandowski joins the fight against the coronavirus and does so by donating, together with his wife Anna, a significant amount to do his bit against the pandemic. As published by the Bild newspaper in its online version, The Bayern Munich forward and his wife, known for her successes as a karateka and her blog on nutrition and nutrition for elite athletes, will donate a million euros that will go to a fund created by the footballers of the German champion. It is called “We kick Corona” and the funds will serve as charitable centers to alleviate the effects of the coronavirus.
The Mayor and City Council (M&CC) has resorted to public donations to raise funds for the restoration of the dilapidated City Hall, and donation boxes will be placed at strategic locations for contributions.Georgetown Mayor Ubraj Narine said in a statement that persons will be able to contribute to the restoration activity since there has not been much progress in recent times.“We want persons to be able to contribute towards saving City Hall if they wish to…City Hall is an important piece of Guyana’s history and there has been lots of talk about rehabilitating the structure, but not much has materialised. I, however, would like to be the one to see City Hall get the attention that is needed so that the structure could be returned to its once prestigious state,” he said.Just last week, Narine gave members of the diplomatic community in Guyana a tour of the city’s dilapidated structures in a bid to solicit funds for City Hall’s restoration. In addition to City Hall, the diplomats also toured the Stabroek Market Wharf, which is on the verge of collapse. A few other sites which were toured included the Municipality Day Care Centre and the City Constabulary Training Centre.On July 8, the Council moved a motion to see the establishment of a Restoration Fund Committee to help fast track the rehabilitation process of the historic building. Although nine committee members were elected, Mayor Narine had informed that this committee will be extended to include other stakeholders such as the private sector, the Chambers of Commerce, the National Trust, the Department of Tourism, civil society, and others.Back in February, the European Union (EU) had handed over a document to the Mayor in relation to the restoration of City Hall’s deplorable structure and ways in which the space can be utilised to garner independent revenues.EU Ambassador to Guyana Jernej Videtic made the presentation to which he stated that some £280,000 was expended to craft the document, bringing new ideas to the restoration project. He noted that some plans include using the historic building as a tourism spot where it can be booked for special events to earn money.The M&CC had pegged the overhaul of the City Hall building at over $400 million. However, other sections have deteriorated further and the administration had opted to constructive a temporary building for staffers.
“These are brands that they love and trust. And when they find them in a Six Flags, it increases their confidence level even further that they’re going to have a terrific day at the park.” Magic Mountain is one of theme park chain Six Flags’ premiere thrill parks. But on top of teenage thrill seekers, the company is hungry to attract families to its Valencia park. The fact that major brands want to partner with Six Flags is not surprising, given that park visitors are a captive audience of consumers. Along with bringing in new concessions, the park is getting a face-lift, cleaning up in hopes of attracting parents with kids and giving them reasons to come back. While teens have long made up the customer base, drawn by the thrill rides, the park wants adults who are likely to spend more on food and concessions. Work on the park includes a complete refurbishing of a 95-year-old Grand Carousel and a resurfacing and striping of the parking lot. Buildings at the Six Flags Plaza are also being painted, and two coasters that fell out of favor with riders and the park’s owners are being dismantled. The nation’s theme park market is growing, with total consumer spending expected to go from $11.2 billion in 2005 to $13.4 billion in 2010, according to a report released last year by PricewaterhouseCoopers. For Six Flags, the cross-branding strategy is new. Before Mark Shapiro became the company’s CEO in December 2005, individual parks handled their own corporate alliance agreements, and the only company-wide deal was with Coca-Cola, Goldberg said. Shapiro created a corporate alliances division to land deals with major brands, and now in addition to Coca Cola Co., Kodak, Cold Stone Creamery, Nintendo and Heinz, Six Flags partners include Home Depot and Papa John’s Pizza. Magic Mountain in Valencia starts daily operation March 17. Visitors will be given a Kodak photo card, which they can hand to photographers tagging along with the park’s Warner Bros. characters. Visitors will access the photos over the Internet when they get home. Cold Stone Creamery will open a shop in the park in early spring, said Sue Carpenter, spokeswoman for Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor. Attendance at Magic Mountain was 2.8 million in 2005, according to the PricewaterhouseCoopers report. Attendance dropped about 25 percent in the last half of 2006, which Shapiro blamed on uncertainty surrounding a possible sale of the park. Now, the park is no longer for sale, and the company is hoping the cross-branding strategy will increase the park’s profitability. “I think it will probably pay off,” said Jack Kyser, chief economist with the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. “Because probably people haven’t been to Magic Mountain for a while, so there is always the interest factor. And the economy is good, so they have money to spend.” Kyser called Six Flags’ cross-branding strategy “very savvy marketing,” and said it will help the company. “They can cement a reputation for being a family-friendly place,” he said. In past years, Magic Mountain has held a number of events that attract families. Those have included its Gospel Celebration and Hallelujah Jubilee concerts. It has areas for children, but the park is known more for its 15 heart-pounding rides. The park does plan to expand its offerings for children. Six Flags has capitalized on the kid-friendly appeal of British TV show Thomas & Friends, the Australian band The Wiggles and skateboarder Tony Hawk to build play areas and rides centered around them at its parks. Magic Mountain does not have any of those attractions this year, but it is working on getting some or all of them in the park in the near future, Carpenter said. Six Flags, the world’s largest regional theme park company, was facing $2.1 billion of debt last year. But in January, it announced a sale of seven parks for $312 million, bringing its total number of North American parks to 21. In the meantime, CEO Shapiro and his executive team are continuing to look for brand names to partner with. “This year is really the first year that Mark’s team will be able to have an impact on a full operating season,” Goldberg said. “So this is really the year that you are going to see the family-friendly strategy go into effect.” [email protected] (661) 257-5253 Magic mix Six Flags is entering into a cross-branding strategy with more than just Coca-Cola.

VALENCIA – Families visiting Six Flags California’s Magic Mountain this spring will find plenty of brand-name ice cream and photographers ready to snap their pictures with Bugs Bunny on Kodak cameras as the theme park works to spruce up and reinvent itself. It’s all part of corporate owner Six Flags Inc.’s family-friendly strategy, in place this year for the first full season. Brand names are playing a big part in the new strategy. Cold Stone Creamery will dish out the ice cream, Kodak will do the photos, Heinz will be the official ketchup and the Nintendo Wii will hold the title of official video game console, which means park visitors can play Nintendo’s Wii for free. “When people come to our parks with their families, they want to find products and services that they’re familiar with,” said Wendy Goldberg, spokeswoman for Six Flags.

So after Nie gave birth to Amber last December, she was determined to leave a better record, a daily diary through imagery. She slips her Canon PowerShot SD450 digital camera into a diaper bag anywhere she goes and has snapped more than 6,500 photos in nine months. “I grab it all the time – if she’s just doing something really cute, maybe playing with a toy or grabbing a shoe in a shoe store,” Nie said. “I don’t really delete any. Years from now, I want to remember the bad face she made,” not just the smiles. Thanks to cheap and easy-to-use recording devices – digital cameras, camcorders, camera phones – today’s kids are forming the most documented generation ever, as parents, relatives and friends capture forever the first, second and hundredth smile. The challenge will come in managing all the data and making sure they get migrated and cared for along the way. “There’s going to be little escaping the embarrassment that comes with having that many baby photos and videos,” said Steve Jones, a communications professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. “On the other hand, what a great thing for this generation to have.” The research company InfoTrends estimates that 67 percent of U.S. households had digital cameras last year, up from 42 percent in 2004. Today’s children will get a glimpse tomorrow of what everyday life was like – how their parents dressed, what furniture and paintings were in their homes – not just during birthdays and special occasions when past generations were more apt to pull out their film cameras and pose in their best outfits. “With digital you can just keep on taking to get the one you want,” said Amy Short, a nurse in East Alton, Ill. “I definitely take a lot more of my son of just everyday, laying around or sleeping or just little things.” Virginia Merritt of Newnan, Ga., laments that she has few records from her life past 8 months, including when she started walking. “I just have what my mom remembers,” she said. So for Evan, who turns 1 on Sept. 25, Merritt made sure to keep a list of firsts on the Web site TotSites, including first use of a sippy cup (Aug. 8), first fever (April 8) and first passing of a toy from one hand to the other (Feb. 12) – categories generally not found in traditional, printed baby books. She also posted sonograms from her pregnancy at Baby Crowd, a Web site for expecting parents. But all this documentation may carry a price if parents, in spending so much energy creating and preserving a digital archive, fail to enjoy living the moment. And will future generations even have time to look through stacks of CDs containing tens or hundreds of thousands of photos? And even if they do, will individual memories become less precious because there are so many? What if disk drives fail or software formats change, rendering photos unreadable by tomorrow’s computers? Will CDs even work? Think of those reels of 8 mm home movies with no projectors for viewing them. “If you look at your parents’ or grandparents’ belongings, you can find old negatives ? and negatives are still reproducible,” said Greg Miele, a Bethesda, Md., father of two, ages 9 and 17. “Yet if you have a hard drive fail on your computer, it’s all over. It’s a huge risk to maintain your photographs in a digital medium.” After two years of shooting digital, Heidi Grunwald has started returning to film, overwhelmed by the prospect of cataloging all the photos too easily snapped. “It’s taking a lot of enjoyment out of photography,” said the mother of a 9-year-old. “I find myself not even using the camera, thinking that if I take photographs of this school event, I’m now going to have to spend a whole week processing them. Why do you need all those pictures? Who’s going to look at them all at the end of the day?” Many parents acknowledge their kids may never want all the photos, but they say they’d like to have them available just in case they want them – particularly as they become parents themselves. “Now that I have children of my own, I would love to see baby pictures of me to see if my daughter looks like I did, what characteristics I share,” said Thea Jankowski of Saint Charles, Ill. Until that day comes, many of the photos are being distributed to family and friends via e-mail and photo-sharing Web sites – in some cases exposing their child’s most private moments to the entire world. Some parents buy additional disk drives to archive photos, burn them on CDs or keep copies online – not always mindful that photo sites often make it difficult to retrieve the original, high-resolution versions necessary for quality prints. Jennifer Lucas, of Frankfort, Ill., makes prints of the best photos and keeps them in a traditional album. She keeps the rest by month on CDs. “Looking back at what my parents have of me, there might be 20 to 30 pictures from my entire first year,” Lucas said. With Jack, born four months ago, “we already have hundreds documenting everything he’s already done. Chances are those discs are never going to be looked at again when he gets older, but they will be there in case.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Anick Jesdanun THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – For her 30th birthday, while she was still pregnant, Lindsay Nie received from Mom an album filled with her baby and childhood photos. She enjoyed the trip down memory lane – recalling, for instance, the wooden slide she had in her room and the way she used to play on it. But she also noticed many gaps in the collection, in some cases months or even a year in length.

Donegal Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has raised the need for financial supports for Donegal’s tourism and retail sectors due to the impact of Brexit with the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys.Minister Humphreys was appearing before the Oireachtas Committee on Business, Enterprise and Innovation to outline the government’s supports for businesses in the context of Brexit.Senator Mac Lochlainn serves on this committee as his party’s Seanad Spokesperson on the portfolio. Senator Mac Lochlainn said: “The impact of Brexit has already been profound for Donegal’s tourism and retail sector with a big drop in cross border trade and from the British tourism market.Brexit has also led to a delay in investment plans across the county that is really hurting our local economy. I challenged Minister Humphreys on what supports her government has provided or will provide to these struggling businesses”.“One area that has caused real anger has been the same application of VAT increases across the entire State.“There is no comparison between a hotel in Donegal and a hotel in Dublin city or indeed with restaurants or other businesses, yet they are treated the same from a taxation perspective. “It is surely not beyond the wit of man or woman to find a solution to this unfair policy or to reimburse the Donegal businesses in some way.Donegal businesses are also under pressure from commercial rates and insurance increases.“While I welcome confirmation that Donegal businesses will finally see a rates review, the truth is that some businesses will gain, and some will lose from this review.“The Minister lives in and represents a border community herself, so she should know better than most the impact of Brexit on similar border communities in Donegal.“While she had sympathetic words in response to my representations at the committee, we need to see real actions and practical financial supports being rolled out as soon as possible”.

From left, artists Noah Mdluli, Phuzu Mtshali, Shadruck Masuku and Jiggs Thorne in a screen grab from the House on Fire website. House on Fire was carved out of local materials in all kinds of shapes, figures and towers. It is a castle where colourful mosaics line the walls, impressive sculptures hang from the ceiling and sprout from the ground, and detail is infused in every inch. (Images: House on Fire) MEDIA CONTACTS • House on Fire +268 528 2110 [email protected] RELATED ARTICLES • Showy and subversive: Holy Afro! • SA’s ‘zef’ trio thrash music scene • South African art • SA art snapped up at UK auction • Mines, headgear and the mindFour men are changing the global image of Swaziland one artwork at a time, as the group running the whimsical art-filled castle that is House on Fire work to turn their country, one of the smallest in Africa, into the most happening place on the continent.House on Fire is the brainchild of Jiggs Thorne, a formally trained Swazi artist. Where others saw tourist craft markets Thorne saw undiscovered artists, untapped potential, and partners – in the form of Noah Mdluli, Phuzu Mtshali, and Shadruck Masuku – for his new venture. Concerned about how many talented young people in his country struggled to make a living and had no vehicle to display their work, Thorne took action.“I started to work with road-side carvers that had a lot of humour and it played to my senses,” he said. “At some point I realised that we needed to come together under the same roof. We needed to build a platform to inspire the arts in Swaziland and that was really the inspiration for designing the space.“Our history is really from roadside to gallery.”The gallery in which the group work and collaborate is an art-filled castle of impressive proportions, what resident artists call their “fantasy-scape” and one that has steadily become a national point of reference.The space was carved out of local materials in all kinds of shapes, figures and towers. It is a castle where colourful mosaics line the walls, impressive sculptures hang from the ceiling and sprout from the ground, and detail is infused in every inch. It is a magical marriage between Gaudi’s architecture, Picasso’s distorted shapes, and Southern African carving; surreal and comfortable, it also includes a stage and garden.A far cry from traditional development projects, House on Fire is a local artist’s alliance.“We are a collaborative team in a real relationship because we need each other to succeed,” Thorne said. “We absolutely could not make it without each other.” He said art buyers were sometimes confused by their inability to attribute a single author to their pieces. “But we cannot, because we work in synergy.”The group’s work expands beyond running their fantasy gallery. Aside from creating sculpture, carving, and installation art, they promote events and music performances, and are involved in community action. House on Fire is open day and night to both locals and visitors.“A really exiting part of this is the idea of a cultural meeting point,” said Thorne. “We call that the ‘juncture of hum’.”Part of what the space does, by virtue of its location in rural Swaziland, is challenge stereotypes. “You can be an artist in Swaziland, and artists can share their stories and create a new language that has relevance,” Thorne said.The Swazi landscape is dominated by sugarcane plantations, plain fields, natural reserves, and small towns. Driving past the capital, Mbabane, it is hard to imagine that a gallery and cultural space of spectacular proportions hides at the next roadside exit.The national economy is supported by tourism and agriculture, but poverty remains calamitous. Swaziland is one of the poorest countries in the world and faces increased challenges due to the HIV/Aids pandemic. The country has the highest HIV prevalence rate worldwide and the United Nations estimates life expectancy to be 32.5 years of age, the lowest on the planet.Not discouraged by the statistics and challenges, House on Fire and its artists became involved in artfully fighting poverty. “We already had House on Fire and the idea was to let that fire spread though the walls and into a wider space. We set our sites high,” said Thorne.“Our work is about accepting that you have a story to tell and a mandate to carry on your own message. House on Fire is a conscious platform; we recognise the need to develop the local arts, but we also act on the concerns that affect us all as Swazis.”With this in mind, House on Fire created Bushfire, a music festival that brings musicians from all over Africa to Swaziland and raises funds to fight local poverty. The 2010 edition of the Bushfire Festival had more than 19 000 visitors over three days of concerts.Profits benefit Young Heroes of Swaziland, an independent organisation that supports local Aids orphans. The issue is pressing in a country of 1.5-million, where an estimated 80 000 children have been left parentless due to the pandemic.For critics who have difficulty imagining art as important in developing Swaziland, Thorne said: “The idea of creation for creation’s sake is not very well understood here. But we have made this conscious decision to start specialising and cultivating a special language and sense of identity through our work.”The numbers back up Thorne and the House on Fire group. The conservative estimate is that this year’s Bushfire Festival injected R6-million (US$830 000) into Swaziland’s economy.The next Bushfire Festival is planned for 27 to 29 May 2011. In the meantime, the House on Fire foursome have an upcoming art project: carving whimsical armours and dressing their bodies as a league of Swazi Knights. Nothing could seem more appropriate.Source: MediaGlobal

Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Facebook also says a free, downloadable guide for teachers, written by safety experts Linda Fogg Phillips, B.J. Fogg and Derek Barid will be available in the coming weeks.Social Reporting Tool Expanded to Rest of SiteAlso new today is the expansion of Facebook’s social reporting tool to more sections of the network, including Profiles, Pages and Groups. Introduced in March of this year as a way for users to report photos they don’t like, the same “report” link will now be found elsewhere on the network.Anyone can take advantage of the tool to report images, or, now, other content, that contains hate speech, violence, illegal activity, pornography, spam or scam content or personal attacks. However, the tool was pitched more as a way for younger Facebook users to get help from friends and other trusted adults. Today, Facebook announced the launch of several new tools aimed at making the social network a safer and more secure experience for everyone involved. Some of the tools, like the redesigned Family Safety Center and social reporting buttons, are designed to combat the ongoing issue of cyberbullying, which primarily affects the younger Facebook population. Meanwhile, other new tools will be helpful to everyone, like the option to enable an advanced security feature called Two Factor Authentication and the improvements to HTTPS.All of the new features are available now, says Facebook.Updated Family Safety CenterThe newly redesigned Family Safety Center was announced in March during President Obama’s White House Conference on Bullying Prevention. Originally called just “Safety Center” when launched in April 2010, this online portal offers educational information for users, with sections dedicated to parents, teens, teachers and law enforcement professionals. The new site sports a fresh look, with easy to navigate topics, helpful videos, how-to sections, and links to related Facebook pages. The Center even links to relevant news articles off-site for additional information. For example, the Facebook Safety Tools page provides links recommended articles from The Washington Post, CNET, Huffington Post and others. “Safety and child psychology experts tell us that online issues are frequently a reflection of what is happening offline,” explained a company blog post from March. “By encouraging people to seek help from friends, we hope that many of these situations can be resolved face to face.” That same message was reiterated again today.The tool not only allows users to report offensive content to Facebook itself, it also directs users how to get help through “What You Can Do” screens, that offer suggestions on how to deal with their harasser, like “Send a message,” “Remove as friend,” or “Block.” Users can also check a box that lets them get help from a trusted friend, which can be anyone else they want to forward the message to. This option requires the entry of an email address, which would allow users to forward the information to people they aren’t friends with on Facebook, like adults, parents or teachers, for example. Related Posts Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#Facebook#Real World#security#social networks#web sarah perez Two Factor Authentication and Improved HTTPSThe last set of new launches today involve tools that provide Facebook users with additional security features. An optional Two Factor Authentication setting will begin rolling out now, allowing users to have the option of entering a code anytime they log into Facebook from a new device. This code is entered in addition to the account password, adding an extra layer of protection.Facebook has also improved its HTTPS feature, which allows users to access to Facebook over a secure connection, so that the feature will switch back on after a user visits a non-HTTPS Facebook application. Many in the security community would like to see HTTPS made the default, of course, but there appears to still be issues with Facebook applications adopting the feature. This update provides a workaround for that problem by allowing users to play Facebook games and use Facebook apps via non-HTTPS connections, then returning to the secure connection when finished.

India captain Virat Kohli has insisted India are in no mood to let their intensity dip in their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match against Afghanistan on Saturday at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.Speaking to Pakistan great Wasim Akram for the ICC, Kohli pointed out it’s difficult to gain momentum in a tournament like the World Cup and every game gives the Indian team an opportunity to execute their plans to perfection.India are well-placed to reach the semi-final of World Cup 2019, having won 3 out of their first 4 matches by comfortable margins. India thrashed arch-rivals Pakistan by 89 runs (DLS) on Sunday in Manchester and are now on a 5-day break before their next match against Afghanistan.”For sure (take Afghanistan seriously). It’s very difficult to gain momentum in a tournament like the World Cup. We want to win every game we play. And the fact that we have long gaps between each game.. that helps a lot. We have time to recover, regroup and then the motivation is back again. No game is easy in this World Cup. We have to be professional and execute our plans well,” Virat Kohli said.India have been clinical with their performances so far in the World Cup. Despite losing a couple of key players in Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar to injuries, Virat Kohli’s men managed to dominate Pakistan on Sunday in Manchester in all three departments.Rohit Sharma is in fine nick after having scored 2 hundreds in 3 matches while back-up opener KL Rahul shone vs Pakistan in the absence of Dhawan at the top. The middle-order has come good with Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni chipping in with cameos while the bowling department has been boosted by the good form of their wrist-spinners.advertisementStressing that India’s focus has been on enjoying their World Cup stint in England, Virat Kohli said the former champions are making it a point to keep the mood in the dressing room light.”Our first decision when we came here (in England) was to have a lot of fun because it’s a long tournament and it’s important to enjoy every day. Off the field, we find time to crack jokes even in the practice session,” Kohli added.”We’re were happy where we stand as a team. Even when we are in the dressing room, we can see each one of us are fulfilling our roles to perfection.”Also Read | World Cup 2019: Anushka Sharma joins Virat Kohli in England ahead of India’s Afghanistan tieAlso Read | Pakistan Cricket Board should penalise players spotted at Shisha cafe: Intikhab AlamAlso See:

The bison bull was a long way from where he should have been — on provincial grazing lands in west-central Alberta instead of the rugged backcountry of Banff National Park.“We are considering destruction versus capture of this animal,” Parks Canada wildlife ecologist Jesse Whittington wrote 11 days after the bull, dubbed M05, crossed the park’s eastern boundary.Emails obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act detail how Parks Canada staff strived to bring MO5’s summer excursion to a happy conclusion, and how they carefully crafted their message when it did not turn out the way they’d hoped.A Parks Canada program to reintroduce bison to Banff reached a major milestone July 29 when more than 30 animals were released from a paddock into 1,200 square kilometres of Rocky Mountain wilderness. It was the first time in 140 years that bison roamed wild there.About a week later, two bulls — M05 and M19 — ventured out of the park independently.The agency committed to the Alberta government that it would take action if bison wandered too far. Public safety was a factor and there were also concerns about the animals coming into contact with cattle or damaging property.For days, staff were able to track the bulls’ movements using satellite data and signals from their collars.By Aug. 16, M05 was covering an average of 15 kilometres daily and could have reached private ranchland within a day.They tried coaxing it back into the park, but it didn’t work. Moving him was not an option because of a wildfire nearby. Fire crews were using all available large helicopters.Parks staff found M05 in a swamp and shot him. “That was a thankless and difficult job. I appreciate your willingness to do it,” Whittington wrote the two workers who killed the bull.M19 was still outside the park, but his location was not a concern at the time.Karsten Heuer, manager for the Banff Reintroduction Project, told colleagues it was important to get the tone right in a media release.“Minimize repetition and avoid use of government terms like ‘management action’ that make us sound a little cold-hearted.”Once the bull’s death did hit the news, the agency noted “overwhelmingly negative” reaction.“The CBC and CTV Calgary Facebook posts both garnered over 100 comments, over 100 ‘angry’ reactions and over or nearly 100 ‘sad’ reactions,” said a report that included a sampling of comments.“Parks Canada you screwed up royally. You don’t deserve bison roaming free in the park,” one said.Staff at the agency’s national office sent supportive messages to their Banff colleagues.“We just want to sympathize with you on the occasion of what must have been an agonizing decision,” said one note to Heuer.Parks officials were able to capture M19 three days after M05 was killed.He was tranquilized, hoisted away by helicopter and then trucked to Waterton Lakes National Park. He couldn’t return to the Banff herd, lest he wander off again and encourage others to follow.National office was not keen on publicizing a photo of M19 bundled up and suspended under the helicopter. It said it would “prefer having a picture of the bison (happy and healthy) in his new paddock.”“The picture below might be misinterpreted by the public, be shared out of context on social media etc.” In an interview, Bill Hunt, Banff’s resource conservation manager, recalled it being a tough time. That was especially true for those who killed M05 as they had spent 18 months caring for the animals before they were released.“Whether it’s dealing with bears or elk or cougars or wolves or bison, sometimes we have to make these difficult decisions,” Hunt said.The remaining herd — now numbering 34 — has mostly gathered around the spot where it was initially released. One bull seems to like being on his own the next valley over, but he’s still well within the reintroduction zone. A cow and two of her young dipped briefly across the boundary in October, but turned back.“Although it had some very serious challenges, overall we’re having a fantastic outcome here,” Hunt said. “Thirty-four healthy bison maintaining themselves over winter, which was our key concern, right in the heart of Banff.”Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press

APTN National NewsThere was a massive gathering of Idle No More supporters Wednesday.At one point there were so many who turned out the place hosting the meeting collapsed.But don’t worry, nobody was hurt.This is a story about the secret weapon Idle No More uses to organize.It’s a tool they used Wednesday to bring out thousands to a discussion about the future of the movement.APTN National News reporter Tim Fontaine has the story.
The cameras move on from relaying searing footage of the starving masses, the dying and the homeless, they fly off to the next crisis du jour, and donor attention takes flight with them; funding ebbs, but the masses still starve, still die, are still homeless. “It’s an intractable issue, that’s for sure,” Catherine Bragg, Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator, tells the UN News Centre as the international community prepared to mark the first World Humanitarian Day on 19 August. One of the tools the UN uses to counter so-called forgotten or under-funded crises which have slipped off or under the humanitarian radar is the four-year-old Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), a third of whose targeted annual total of $450 million is committed for just such emergencies where lives are at stake. “But the amount is obviously not adequate to deal with the size of the problem,” Ms. Bragg notes. Some two dozen countries have benefited from CERF’s funding for forgotten crises so far this year, including such little noted emergencies as Algeria, where Western Saharan refugees from the conflict with Morocco have been living in camps in the Tindouf area for decades, or drought-afflicted Djibouti and Guinea, which suffer from severe food shortages. In many cases the grants are relatively small, like $1.5 million for Algeria or $2 million for Burkina Faso . In others they are more substantial and a country may receive more than one allocation a year, like the Democratic Republic of Korea (DPRK) or Zimbabwe , both suffering from severe food shortages, with $19 million and $20 million respectively. In all cases the allocations are meant to be life-saving and time-sensitive. Ms. Bragg cites five reasons for a crisis being under-funded. The first is the relatively small number of beneficiaries, perhaps tens of thousands or 100,000, “compared to next door, where you’ve got 2.5 million,” she says. “People tend to pay attention to the bigger one; people forget about the one that is a small caseload. I think that’s the case of places like Algeria or Guinea .” In the second case, donors do not have sufficient confidence that humanitarian agencies can actually get the aid to the beneficiaries because of either security reasons as in Somalia or Government constraints as in DPRK. “They want to be able to tell their electorates and the taxpayers that the money is actually getting to the beneficiaries,” she notes. The third reason arises when aid gets tangled up in politics, as in the DPRK or Zimbabwe , and donors have difficulty separating out what they should be doing with a country. In the fourth case the sense of urgency has subsided, as happened in Kenya . “When we had the post-election violence after Christmas 2007 and in 2008 we were all getting excited about it,” Ms. Bragg says. “But once the sense of urgency has subsided, then attention drifted even though there still remain needs.” Finally there are the cases where chronic abject poverty masks exacerbated conditions caused by natural disasters or conflicts, as in Niger or Haiti . In all cases the solution lies in continually beating the drum, raising the alarm publicly, and redirecting world awareness, as Ms. Bragg did with her recent visit to Central African Republic, where 1 million people, or a quarter of the total population, are in need of aid, 125,000 of the living in the bush without access to water, shelter, medical services or education. “It is a smaller caseload compared with next-door Darfur which is 4 million people in need, or Congo , or even south Sudan ,” she says. “What I was trying to do was… bringing to people’s attention and continuing to remind them that it’s not just the big ones out there, there are also the small ones. We also need to reassure donors that we can get the aid to the people in need.” As to “the tangling of humanitarian with political issues… we have to keep saying, in DPRK for example, there’s a humanitarian situation regardless of what you think of the political moves of the current Government. There are people who are in need of food. There are people who are severely undernourished.” When the sense of urgency subsides, “we need to continue to communicate… so that people don’t get a sense of complacency, don’t get a sense of ‘well, it’s passed us by, things are back to normal again,’ ” she adds, applying the same lesson for countries with chronic abject poverty. “We need to keep bringing it up so that it is understood in donor capitals that there are still humanitarian issues,” she stresses. 17 August 2009It is one of the most difficult problems the United Nations faces in tackling humanitarian crises – how to maintain momentum when the media klieg lights have gone elsewhere, or generate it when they were never there in the first place.

$13 a pack? NYC mayor wants highest cigarette prices in US FILE – In this April 7, 2017, file photo, cigarette butts are discarded in an ashtray outside a New York office building. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a plan on April 19, 2017, to raise the price of a pack of cigarettes from $10.50 to $13 in the city. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan, File) by The Associated Press Posted Apr 20, 2017 9:49 am MDT Last Updated Apr 20, 2017 at 10:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is pushing for the nation’s biggest city to also be the country’s priciest spot to buy a pack of smokes.De Blasio is backing an effort to raise the price of a pack of cigarettes from $10.50 to $13, which he says would be the nation’s highest.The Democrat announced his support Wednesday for a series of legislative proposals designed to drastically cut tobacco use in the city by the year 2020. De Blasio says his goal is to reduce the number of smokers by 160,000. An estimated 900,000 New York City residents currently smoke.“What we’re here today talking about is saving lives,” said Dr. Mary T. Bassett, the city’s health commissioner, who appeared with the mayor at offices of the American Heart Association. “We want to make it easier to quit and harder to smoke.”The proposals are set for hearings later this month.The city council also will consider legislation to gradually reduce by half the number of licenses issued to retailers to sell tobacco products. Philadelphia and San Francisco have similar licensing restrictions.An American Cancer Society study found that 8,992 retail outlets were licensed to sell tobacco in New York as of October, and about a third of those were within 500 feet of a school.Other proposals would set minimum prices and create taxes on smokeless tobacco and small cigars, and require sellers of electronic cigarettes to obtain licenses.
The United Nations in South Sudan is assisting hundreds of students to complete their primary education this week by sitting for final exams that were disrupted when fighting broke out between anti- and pro-Government forces. More than 400 people, ranging in age from 14 years up, have begun taking their Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE) at the UN compound in the capital Juba. The week-long exams, scheduled for 16 December last year, started yesterday. UN and partner organizations have been working in support of community elders and teachers to prepare the students to take those exams, including locating rooms for the exams. In one of its compounds, UN staff transformed the social centre, a place for staff to relax after work, into a makeshift exam hall with desks closely placed in near rows flanking a faded snooker table. “The exam is not really difficult, but the fighting and displacement have made it very hard for us,” said Balong Miet, 18, who is seeking refuge at UN peacekeeping compound’s (UNMISS) Tomping camp. Speaking to UNMISS after the first day of exams, she called on warring sides to end the violence which has killed thousands of people since 15 December 2013, after President Salva Kiir said soldiers loyal to former vice-president Riek Machar, dismissed from office in July, launched an attempted coup. The fighting has also displaced some 230,000 people, more than a quarter of whom are seeking refuge on UN bases. Among them, Gatluak Tuong Gatluak, who told UNMISS that he was not able to focus on the exams: “It is hard, especially for those of us who lost our relatives to the fighting in Juba.” “We don’t even have a good place to read and sleep,” he added. South Sudan’s adult literacy rate stands at 27 per cent, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) reported. Seventy per cent of children between six and 17 years old have never set foot inside a classroom and only one in 10 children complete primary school, according to the local UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) office, which is supporting the exams. Hastin Anisio, who is the Minister of Education in the Central Equatorial State, in which Juba is located, said that despite the challenges, he is pleased the youth had an opportunity to write the exams. The hope is that when the displaced people leave the UN camp, they will have a greater opportunity to improve their lives.
A convoy of 81 refugees crossed into the DRC from the Republic of the Congo last week “marking the end of five years in exile for the group,” said UNHCR spokesperson Ariane Rummery.In 2009, some 160,000 people fled Equateur province to neighbouring Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic. They were fleeing clashes that erupted between the Munzaya and Enyele communities over traditional fishing and farming rights in the area.Since then, they have been living in isolated areas along a 600-kilometre stretch of the Oubangui River, which separates Republic of Congo from the DRC.Local boats last Wednesday took the refugees across the Oubangui from the town of Betou in Republic of Congo to UN-run reception centres back into the province they had once fled.Upon their arrival, UNHCR and the Government provided returnees with identity documents, as well as information on reintegration assistance. The UN agency also gave returnees a cash grant for travel to their final destinations and to help them settle.Once home, each family receives an aid package on arrival and initiating reintegration activities to ensure a sustainable return, including health care and education programmes. The UN agency is also supporting awareness campaigns to promote peaceful coexistence among communities in the Libenge and Kungu territories, such as a community radio station in the town of Dongo.“But such modest programmes might not be enough to ensure the stability of that now peaceful region,” Ms. Rummery said, calling for further local and national involvement.She also called for the engagement of development actors to develop the remote region which remains vulnerable to further conflict over scarce resources.In New York, the Security Council will on Thursday discuss the situation in the DRC in a high-level debate to be presided by the UK Minister for Africa, Mark Simmonds. The UK currently has the rotating presidency of the Council.In addition, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for the DRC and head of the UN peacekeeping mission there (MONUSCO), Martin Kobler, will participate in the briefing. As will the exiting Special Envoy to the Great Lakes Region, Mary Robinson.
The Lega Serie A yesterday voted unanimously to dismiss the contract with Spanish broadcaster Mediapro after it said the latter had failed to provide necessary guarantees, so the Serie A TV rights will return on the market.The Spanish broker had previously won the bidding war for the rights in February for €1.05bn, but Sky Sport Italia sued and won a court case to have the tender suspended for not respecting Italian antitrust regulations, hence the deal termination.Sky claimed that Spanish broadcaster, Mediapro bid was in a process reserved for independent intermediaries, but that it was a broadcaster rather than an intermediary, and had no capacity to distribute the competition in the Italian market.Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.Even though Mediapro had offered to provide more financial guarantees, the Lega Serie A saw all 20 clubs vote unanimously to terminate the contract.Mediapro now has seven days to commit to a €1.2 billion guarantee to avoid the contract being cancelled definitively, according to Spanish financial daily El Español,That decision will be valid a week today, so Sky and Mediaset are now back in the race to snap up the rights for the 2018-21 seasons.
AC Milan full-back Davide Calabria has risen to Gonzalo Higuain’s defence following his recent struggles by claiming that he’s “our Cristiano Ronaldo”The Argentine striker joined Milan last summer on a season-long loan deal after finding himself surplus to requirements at Juventus due to Ronaldo’s blockbuster arrival from Real Madrid.But things at the San Siro haven’t got off to the smoothest of starts for Higuain with just six goals in 15 Serie A games this term.This has led to reports of a move to Chelsea in this month’s transfer window with Milan allegedly unwilling to continue paying Higuain’s salary and the €40m buy option for next season.Calabria, on the other hand though, is convinced Higuain remains a key part for Milan and described what he brings to the team.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“I told my agent that I’d never seen a striker like Higuain. He’s very good and always done well wherever he’s played,” Calabria told GazzaNet.“Is there a problem with him? No, there isn’t. He’s having a tough time, which can happen, but he’s our Cristiano Ronaldo, given us prestige and something more to the team in general terms.“He’s won a lot and he has so much experience.”Milan will take on Higuain’s parent club Juventus in the Supercoppa Italiana next Wednesday.

This $2,999 gaming laptop impresses with its slim and light chassis, and packs a serious punch with a slew of powerful components, including an 8th Gen Intel processor and one of Nvidia’s new RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics. However, below-average battery life and a relatively dim display shows Acer has a bit more work to do before it can make our list of best gaming laptops.article continued below Acer Predator Triton 500 Price and Configurations I had a great time reviewing the top-of-line, $2,999 Acer Predator Triton 500, which has a 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-8750H processor with 32GB of RAM, dual 512GB NVMe PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration, and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU with 8GB of VRAM. The $2,499 middle child just halves the RAM and storage. The $1,799 base model offers a 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-8750H CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 512 NVMe PCIe SSD and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM. Design I don’t know if it’s the glowing Transformers-esque Acer Predator logo in the center of the black aluminum lid or the Triton’s overall slim frame, but I had the distinct feeling that the laptop was going to transmogrify at any minute. The Triton’s all-aluminum chassis alone doesn’t make much of an impression, but it’s the little things – like the turquoise-lined vents and ports – that make you appreciate this rig. I would advise that you keep a cleaning cloth handy, as the onyx metal is a fingerprint magnet. Acer continues the flourish peekaboo game on the interior of the notebook, lining specific keys in a semi-transparent plastic that serves to enhance the teal backlighting. The touchpad also has a bit of flair, thanks to its chrome edges and the triangle-shaped vents at the top of the deck, which give the laptop a playful look. The Turbo button above the F1 and F2 keys hints at the power within. As 15-inch systems go, the 4.8-pound, 14.1 x 10 x 0.7-inch Triton 500 is a middleweight. The MSI GS75 Stealth (15.6 x 10.2 x 0.7 inches) is a tad heavier at 5 pounds, while the Razer Blade 15 (14 x 9.3 x 0.7 inches) is lighter. Ports Slim but packed, the Triton 500 – with its plethora of ports – is just waiting to be transformed into a mobile battlestation. On the right, you have a couple of USB 3.1 ports, a Thunderbolt 3 port, a mini DisplayPort 1.4 and a Kensington lock. That’s enough to hook up a few monitors and a mouse or two, but you have another USB 3.1 port on the left alongside an HDMI 2.0 port, Ethernet and jacks for a headphone, microphone and power. Display The Triton 500’s 15.6-inch screen offers fairly rich color that’s held back by a rather dim display. I saw various-sized globules of crimson red blood spurt out of a man’s chest as he was propelled backwards through a window during the “Shaft” trailer. Details were so clear that I could see the glass as it splintered into shards. The view was just as nice (and bloody) during my “Battlefield V” playthrough. I stopped to admire the delicate snowflakes dancing in the jet-black sky and lighting up the iridescent green of the aurora borealis before I made my way towards my objective. Sneaking quietly toward the enemy base, I took out a guard with a throwing knife; his blood turned the snow-covered ground dark red. Details on the display were so clear, I could see the glass as it splintered into shards. The notebook’s panel reproduced 117 percent of the sRGB color gamut, which is above our 100-percent minimum, but below the 138-percent premium gaming average. The Razer Blade 15 and MSI GS65 Stealth reached 149 and 161 percent, respectively. MORE: Laptops with the Most Colorful Screens I could already tell the screen was a little on the dim side, so I wasn’t surprised to see that its 277-nit result failed to match the 281-nit average. The Predator Triton 500 is better in this respect than the Blade 15 (262 nits), but doesn’t beat the Stealth (339 nits). Audio Positioned on the bottom-front lip of the laptop, the Triton 500’s speakers are small but loud. Combined with the preinstalled Waves MaxxAudio and Acer TrueHarmony software, the notebook managed to fill our lab with loud, albeit somewhat crowded, audio. Listening to the Cardi B and Bruno Mars homage to ‘90’s R&B tune “Please Me,” I appreciated the volume, but was disappointed by the keyboards and synthesizers, which sounded distorted, and the barely-there low-end was also a letdown. Cardi’s and Mars’ vocals were clear, but sounded a bit flat. MORE: The Best Headsets for Immersive Gaming This is one of the few times I recommend playing around with the audio presets (Gaming General, Gaming FPS, Gaming Sports, Movies, Music and Voice). The Music preset is an absolute must when streaming music. When I started playing “Battlefield V,” the Gaming FPS setting put slightly more focus on sound effects, which made the gunfire and explosions of battle ring a bit more true. However, the violin accompaniment sounded distant. Keyboard and Touchpad It’s not a mechanical keyboard, but the Triton’s keys felt great when I typed. The deep, 1.7-millimeter key travel (1.5 mm is minimum) combined with the 70 grams of actuation (60 g minimum) felt like bouncing on a set of firm, rebounding mattresses. I hit 75 words per minute on the 10FastFingers typing test, which is higher than my usual 70 wpm. The 4.1 x 2.5-inch touchpad offers swift, smooth, multi-gesture action including pinch-zoom, three-finger tap, and four-finger swipe. The bottom corners of the touchpad deliver springy feedback, with a nice click. PredatorSense Out of the box, the Triton 500’s default keyboard color is teal, but with Acer’s PredatorSense software, you can spice things up. In the lighting selections, you can switch up key color with one of the nine basic colors, or get more exotic with the other 16.8 million hues that are available. You also have nine effects to play around with, including Breathing, Zoom, Meteor and Twinkling.

You can also access a number of apps,including XSplit Gamecaster and Nvidia GeForce Experience. Gaming, Graphics and VR Acer’s the latest PC maker to join the RTX bandwagon. The company has outfitted the Triton 500, a pretty slim laptop, with a Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU with 8GB of VRAM, one of the most powerful graphics-processing units available to a mobile system. In addition to high frame rates, the powerful new RTX cards have Nvidia’s new Ray Tracing and DLSS technologies, which mimic how light behaves in real life, making for realistic reflections and prettier graphics overall. The Triton 500 was on a par with its peers during the “Rise of the Tomb Raider” test, scoring 62 frames per second on Very High at 1080. That’s a frame below the 63-fps, premium- gaming category average, but was also in the range of the Razer Blade 15 (60 fps, RTX 2070 Max-Q) and the MSI Stealth (65 fps, RTX 2080 Max-Q) which have RTX 2070 and 2080 Max-Q GPUs. Engaging the Triton 500’s Turbo feature essentially overclocks the laptop, giving the graphics a serious boost. With this feature on, the frame rate increased to 69 fps. The Turbo bump wasn’t as substantial on our “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” benchmark, as the laptop notched 68 fps, compared with the 66 fps it scored without the feature enabled. Still, both scores bested the 54-fps average and the Stealth’s 65 fps. Engaging the Triton 500’s Turbo feature essentially overclocks the laptop, giving the graphics a serious boost. When we ran the “Hitman” test, the Triton 500 delivered 86 fps on its normal setting, which was below the 96-fps average, the Blade 15 and the Stealth. With Turbo enabled, the rate rose to 90 fps. “Grand Theft Auto V” delivered one of the bigger jumps in performance; the Triton produced 60 fps on Normal and 82 fps on Turbo, enough to beat the 76 fps posted by the Blade 15, the category average, and the 77 fps achieved by the Stealth. During the “Middle-Earth: Shadow of War” benchmark, the Triton 500 reached 80 fps, which was below the 87-fps average and the Blade 15’s 91 fps; Turbo Mode notched 102 fps. MORE: The Best Gaming Laptops Just because it’s not as powerful as a full 2080 GPU, the Triton 500 is fully capable of supporting either an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. The laptop maxed out the SteamVR Performance test, scoring 11, matching the Stealth and Blade 15. Performance The Triton 500 is also a force to be reckoned with on the multimedia front,thanks to its 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-8750H processor with 32GB of RAM. The notebook chewed through 35 tabs of Google Chrome, some of which were running Twitch streams, Tweetdeck and YouTube videos while I watched an episode of “The Dragon Prince” on Netflix. When we ran the Geekbench 4.1 overall performance test, the laptop notched 21,290, which is just short of the premium gaming laptop average. Armed with their own 8750H CPUs, the Blade and the Stealth reached 20,437 and 20,843, respectively. On the Excel productivity test, the Triton 500 matched up 65,000 names and addresses in 45 seconds, matching the Blade 15 and barely missing the 42-second average. The Stealth was only a second faster, at 44 seconds. MORE: Laptops with the Best Productivity Performance During the File Transfer Test, the Triton 500’s dual 512GB NVMe PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration duplicated 4.97GB of mixed-media files in a blink-and-you’ll miss-it 3 seconds. That translates to a blistering transfer rate of 1696.4 megabytes, which destroyed the 642.1 average as well as the GS75 Stealth’s 848 MBps and Blade 15’s 636.22 MBps, which both have 512GB SSDs. Battery Life Gaming laptops aren’t known for their battery endurance, and the Triton 500 won’t help change that image. The laptop lasted only 3 hours and 4 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery Test, which involves Wi-Fi web surfing at 150 nits of screen brightness. That runtime is below the 3 hour, 20 minute premium gaming laptop average — but not by much. The Acer outlasted the Stealth’s 2 hours and 29 minutes, but not the Blade 15’s impressive run of 5 hours and 2 minutes. Heat In an attempt to keep the Triton 500’s components from overheating, Acer utilizes a three-fan system coupled with five heat pipes. The fans employ the company’s 4th generation AeroBlade system, which Acer claims increases airflow by 45 percent. However, despite all of Acer’s work, they’re still fighting against a fundamental problem — moving enough air to its components in a slim, confined space. The end results were mixed. I spent 15 minutes gunning down enemy combatants in “Battlefield V.” When I was done, I checked the Triton 500’s touchpad, which hit 92 degrees Fahrenheit – slightly below our 95-degree comfort threshold). The center of the keyboard and the system’s undercarriage reached 107 and 125 degrees, respectively. The undercarriage hit 120 degrees. The fans were fairly quiet in normal mode, which is to be expected from a Max-Q system. But once you hit the Turbo button to overclock the GPU, the fans get loud. I used it in our open office layout and heard several comments about the noise. After a lengthy cool-down session, we ran the test again, only this time using a 15-minute, fullscreen HD video. The touchpad, middle and bottom measured 86, 91 and 101 degrees, respectively. Webcam Integrated webcams are a game of visual roulette — you’ll either get good color or detail — rarely can you get both. In the case of the Triton 500, you’ll see accurate color, as evidenced by my test shots. Despite the fluorescent lighting, my brown skin looked nice, and the Triton even managed to capture my hair’s orange roots. On the detail front, the webcam did a fairly decent job of capturing the crisscross pattern in my cream sweater, but the edges of the storage case looked fuzzy. Software and Warranty In addition to PredatorSense, Acer preinstalled its Care software so you can check system diagnostics, delete junk files, and give your drive a tuneup now and then. The company included a few helpful, third-party apps specific to gaming such as Killer Control Center, with which you can set network bandwidth prioritization. Nvidia’s GeForce Experience offers a suite of apps designed to achieve optimal gaming performance such as Whisper Mode and Battery Optimization, while XSplit Gamecaster is on hand to let you livestream your exploits. Other third-party apps include Amazon, Netflix, Plex, CyberLink PowerDirector and CyberLink PhotoDirector. You also get a slew of Windows 10 bloatware, such as “Candy Crush Soda Saga,” “Candy Crush Friends Saga” and “Township.” For three grand, Acer should apply a lighter touch here. The Acer Predator Triton 500 ships with a one-year limited warranty. See how Acer fared in our annual Tech Support Showdown, Best and Worst Brands and Best and Worst Gaming Brands. Bottom Line From the alluring Acer Swift 7 to the aggressive svelteness of the Predator Triton 500, Acer may have the thin-and-light game on lock. For $2,999, gamers get a seriously portable system that offers a great mix of graphics and overall power. And thanks to the Turbo option, you can squeeze even more power out of the GPU — if you don’t mind the loud whirring from the fans. But for several hundred dollars cheaper, you can get the $2,649 Advanced Model of the Razer Blade 15, which isn’t as powerful as the Triton 500, but is slimmer, with longer battery life and a better display; it also comes in a stunning Mercury White aluminum chassis. However, if you want serious power in a nice portable design, the Acer Predator Triton should be at the top of your list.

by their insurance providers But what if you don’t have health insurance Despite numerous requests from TIME to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas the hospital did not confirmed how the uninsured Liberian patient Thomas Eric Duncan’s care was paid for Analysts believe it’s unlikely that Duncan’s family will be dealt a hefty bill given how high-profile the case was and the mistakes made by the hospital Nebraska Medical Center says it would go about treating an uninsured patient with Ebola the same way that it would treat any patient who comes into their emergency room without insurance They are federally obligated to treat the patient and then the patients who cannot pay for their care can apply for financial aid and become part of the hospital’s charitable care program “We provide millions of dollars worth of this kind of care yearly” a Nebraska hospital spokesperson told TIME What if you get sent to a hospital that’s out of network Being treated at out-of-network hospital or by an out-of-network doctor could in theory result in a hefty bill Getting out-of-network treatment covered by your insurance company is decided on a case-by-case basis based on medical necessity While insurers have the legal right to refuse to cover this type of treatment says Sabrina Corlette of the Center on Health Insurance Reforms at Georgetown University it’s highly unlikely that they would sack the patient with the bill If your stuff needs to be incinerated does insurance cover that One of the surefire ways to get rid of any lingering virus within an Ebola patient’s home is to incinerate their belongings But do they get reimbursed Most likely If a government body or medical professional recommends or requires the destruction of property as a preventative measure in

R-Ariz. said Trump’s congratulations for Putin "insulted every Russian citizen who was denied the right to vote in a free and fair election"Trump shot back on Twitter "Getting along with Russia (and others) is a good thing not a bad thing"Leon Aron a resident scholar and the director of Russian studies at the conservative American Enterprise Institute said Monday he was stunned by reports that Trump so willingly suggested a White House meeting "Are you kidding me Are you kidding me" Aron said "It’s really mind-boggling I’m usually not this emotional"Such summits are "a very precious commodity" for Russian presidents boosting their popularity at home and should be offered only as a reward Aron said He noted that in addition to the spy-poisoning episode Putin last month bragged about the strength of his country’s nuclear weapons in a nationalistic speech that was accompanied by an animated video depicting warheads aimed at Florida The Kremlin also scheduled the presidential election to coincide with the anniversary of Russia’s formal annexation of CrimeaIf Trump meets with Putin as an equal given these events Aron said he is sending the message that it is acceptable to "kill more people seize more territory"Michael McFaul a Stanford University professor who was the US ambassador to Russia from 2012 to 2014 said Trump should meet with Putin only if "such a summit would put pressure on both countries to achieve some tangible outcome in America’s national interest""Right now it’s very hard to see what those might be" McFaul said "It’s not even clear to me that diplomats in our two countries are working together on any issue of mutual interest at this time Especially given Putin’s recent behavior in the world a summit that just gives Putin a smiley photo op in the Oval Office does not serve American national interests"The White House on Monday sought to play down the meeting proposal"As the president himself confirmed on March 20 hours after his last call with President Putin the two had discussed a bilateral meeting in the ‘not-too-distant future’ at a number of potential venues including the White House" Sanders said in a statement after Ushakov’s comments "We have nothing further to add at this time"Alina Polyakova a fellow at the nonpartisan Brookings Institution said Trump doesn’t seem to realize the policy implications of proposing such a meeting "He tends to extend these invitations to the White House like it’s an invitation to dinner" she saidShe interpreted the Kremlin’s decision to share the information on Monday as a way to prove that even though the United States expelled dozens of Russian diplomats Putin still has "an open door in Washington"Given the worsening environment Ushakov said Monday "it is of course difficult to discuss the possibility of holding a summit" Russia’s Interfax news agency reported"I hope that the situation will allow us to discuss this issue" the Kremlin aide added referring to the planning for a Trump-Putin summit according to Interfax "We believe that it is rather important and necessary for both countries and for the entire international community"Since Trump became president the two have met at the Group of 20 summit in Germany in July and briefly at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam in NovemberBut a full-blown bilateral meeting has proved elusive in part because of political head winds in Washington fanned by the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 US election and into possible collusion with the Trump campaignFor Putin a sit-down with Trump at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave would represent "a dream come true" said Vladimir Frolov an independent foreign policy analyst in Moscow"I think his entire strategy now is to get into a long private meeting with Trump and use his intel charms on him" Frolov said of Putin a former KGB agent He added however that the Kremlin’s decision to disclose the detail about the White House invitation may also have been meant to embarrass Trump which could provoke an adverse reaction from the US presidentPutin last visited the White House for a 2005 meeting with President George W Bush who afterward described Russia as a "strong ally" in the war on terrorism Dmitry Medvedev during his term as Russian president held White House talks with President Barack Obama in 2010 but Putin has not made another White House visit since he returned to the presidency in 2012In 2013 Obama canceled a planned Moscow summit with Putin after Russia took in Edward Snowden the National Security Agency leaker facing espionage charges in the United StatesA White House visit despite the deterioration in ties between the United States and Russia since Putin’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 would probably be depicted in Russia as a victory for Putin who has portrayed himself as a leader rebuilding the country’s global influence while reasserting Russian interestsThe Russian news media has cast the criticism of Trump as too friendly with Putin as evidence of the US establishment seeking to undermine its president’s efforts to pursue a sober fair-minded Russia policy? that fund is to enable
