Chatterbox Restaurant, Ocean City’s Pink-Hued Icon, Celebrates 80th Anniversary

first_imgOwners Maria and Bob Boyer, who bought the Chatterbox in 2014, stand in front of a historic mural that serves as a centerpiece in the dining room. By Donald WittkowskiCustomers strolling through the doors of the Chatterbox Restaurant might think they have passed through a time portal transporting them back to the 1950s.The Platters croon their 1955 hit “The Great Pretender” over the loudspeaker, old 45 rpm records tacked on the walls serve as old-school decorations and a neon Pepsi Cola sign behind the counter is faintly reminiscent of the Eisenhower era.Yo, all we need are Richie and Fonzie from “Happy Days” to stop by to make this nostalgic atmosphere complete.Although the reproduction retro-chic look may be trendy in some modern restaurants, the Chatterbox is an authentic throwback to the 1950s. Actually, it traces its roots to 1937, when the original owner, Jean Campbell, opened the family-style eatery in downtown Ocean City.The current owners, Bob and Maria Boyer, will celebrate the restaurant’s 80th anniversary on Friday with a cake-cutting gala open to the public. Slated to get underway at 11 a.m., the celebration will last as long as the free cake holds out, the Boyers said.Maria Boyer points to an old black-and-white photo of the Chatterbox’s original owner, Jean Campbell, who opened the restaurant in 1937.Jean Campbell will also be there to greet customers, sort of. She has been immortalized in an old black-and-white photo from 1941 that shows her standing in front of a delivery truck. The picture frame containing Campbell’s photo also includes an old Chatterbox menu from the 1930s. Campbell’s photo peers out over the main dining room, ensuring that she will be a permanent fixture at the restaurant.Beginning with Campbell’s ownership, the Chatterbox has been touted in its advertising slogan as the place “where the town meets.” Impossible to miss, the iconic, pink-hued, Spanish Mission Revival-style building occupies a prominent downtown location at the corner of Ninth Street and Central Avenue.The Boyers, who bought the restaurant in 2014 from the previous longtime owners, the Repici family, have kept the historic “where the town meets” slogan, but have also added their own: “Family, Food, Fun.”“We wanted to provide families with great food and a good time,” Maria Boyer said, explaining how the Chatterbox brands itself. “Family, food and fun, that’s what the restaurant is all about.”The landmark building, bathed in a distinctive pink color scheme, occupies the corner of Ninth Street and Central Avenue.The Boyers decided to preserve the restaurant’s 1950s-era décor when they took over. While that aspect of the restaurant is clearly rooted in the old days, other parts of the Chatterbox have evolved to keep pace with modern tastes.A new chef was brought in by the Boyers in 2014 to make changes with the menu that reflect the trend for healthier eating. An emphasis is placed on serving fresh fruits and vegetables bought from local farmers. Gluten-free meals are available. The Chatterbox also roasts its own meats.To keep meals affordable for families, the restaurant offers a $5.99 daily lunch special. There are other quaint, family-style touches, such as serving children’s meals in paper containers that look like vintage cars. The children can take the cars home.Dan and Lauren Jordon, of Cinnaminson, along with their daughter, Ella, 6, and son, Max, 4, had lunch in the family-friendly restaurant.For people who want to bring their family dog along, the restaurant’s outdoor dining section is pet-friendly. Inside, though, only service dogs are allowed.Individual booths and tables offer comfy seating for customers, but the Chatterbox can also accommodate large groups, the Boyers said. Altogether, the restaurant has 175 seats, including the outdoor patio area.The Boyers, who have been married for 35 years, were no strangers to Ocean City’s restaurant scene when they bought the Chatterbox. Previously, they had owned Tory’s Ice Cream Parlor, a now-gone eatery formerly located at 33rd Street and Asbury Avenue.After they sold the Tory’s property, they began scouting around for a family restaurant they could buy. The Boyers noted it took them three years of searching before they finally settled on the Chatterbox as “the right place.”As rumors swirled a few years ago that the Chatterbox might be demolished and redeveloped, they were partly motivated by their desire to save the restaurant.“We wanted to preserve the legacy of the Chatterbox,” Bob Boyer said. “It’s an iconic part of the city.”Employees enjoy a relaxing moment at the Chatterbox counter.Renowned architect Vivian Smith, an Ocean City native, designed the Chatterbox, according to the restaurant website. Smith also designed other Ocean City landmarks, including City Hall, the Music Pier on the Boardwalk and the historic Flanders Hotel.On Oct. 29, 2012, the Chatterbox suffered what may have been its biggest blow. Hurricane Sandy badly damaged the restaurant, along with other countless buildings on the island. A water line inside the restaurant shows just how deep the flooding had surged.The restaurant was gutted and remodeled. After the renovations were completed, it reopened in May 2014.Among the items saved from the floodwaters was the Chatterbox’s historic mural, which whimsically depicts a nostalgic scene inside the restaurant, right down to bobby-soxers dancing to the tunes from a Wurlitzer jukebox and a soda jerk serving up a sundae. The mural is the centerpiece of the Chatterbox’s – What else? – 1950s décor.Old 45 rpm records attached to the walls add to the nostalgic atmosphere.last_img read more

Doctor: Your heart is actually capable of breaking

first_img Facebook Pinterest (“stethoscope” by PROjasleen_kaur, CC BY-SA 2.0) Valentine’s Day is coming up, so be warned: your heart is actually capable of breaking.Stress-induced cardiomyopathy, or Broken Heart Syndrome, is a “stress hormone response that causes reduced heart function and heart failure”, says IU Health cardiologist Dr. Kyle Frick.According to Dr. Frick, Broken Heart Syndrome is typically brought on by intense emotional or physical stressors.“Any intense emotional or physical stressor, so the loss of a loved one, even something like winning the lottery, those things can produce a surge in adrenaline which can cause Broken Heart Syndrome,” Dr. Frick said. “Also things we see in the hospital, like a big surgery, or being sick.”Typically, about 1 to 2 percent of people who come to the Emergency Room with heart attack symptoms will have Broken Heart Syndrome, says Dr. Frick. However, the stress of the pandemic has brought that number up to 7 to 8 percent.He says the existence of Broken Heart Syndrome truly shows that our mental and emotional health is often connected to our physical health — so we should be taking good care of both.“Just trying to overall manage your emotional and physical well-being,” Dr. Frick said. “That means not only diet, exercise, but taking care of your emotional health as well. Doing things that make you happy and keeping you in the right frame of mind.”Overall, Dr. Frick says Broken Heart Syndrome is rare — but if you have symptoms that are new and worrisome, like chest pain or shortness of breath, you should talk to your doctor.

Tool Descends On San Jose’s SAP Center [Gallery]

first_imgTool just wrapped up their second US tour in as many years this weekend, including a stop at the SAP Center in San Jose, CA on Wednesday, June 21, 2017. The band seemed tighter than ever, opening with four tracks from 2001’s Lateralus: “The Grudge”, “Parabol”/“Parabola” and “Schism” before dialing it all the way back to the title track off their 1992 debut EP, “Opiate”.In the day and age of plug-and-play electronic DJs and where the grassroots decentralization of the music business has seemed to gain the upper hand on upending industry big wigs, vocalist Maynard James Keenan is a larger-than-life musician maintaining the myth of the mysterious rockstar persona. In what appears to be a revitalized creative interest in engaging fans as Tool, Keenan, drummer Carey, guitarist Adam Jones, and bassist Justin Chancellor showed San Jose they are feeling good. As he has all tour, Keenan was donned in full-out protective S.W.A.T. gear with small rainbow emblems on the knee-pads and chest, a controller for his microphone as a utility belt, (which could have been turned up a few notches), and black sunglasses all under a protective helmet. The rest of the band, while maintaining their stationary quadrant of the stage, stood before the beaming appreciation of fans while the lead singer avoided the spotlight, literally shrouded in mystery, smoke, and under first-class protection. During the Grammy-winning “Anemia,” as well as throughout the majority of the show, Keenan reserved the left-rear of the stage for himself to ninja kick, karate chop, stretch, and dance however he wanted to.Part of Tool’s approach to the show takes the element of surprise away, as their setlist remains mostly the same from show to show. Though the band hasn’t released music in eleven years, their 2006 release 10,000 Days affirmed their critical and commercial appeal worldwide. So when Tool debuted “Descending” at the beginning of the tour, it made for another exciting reason to catch the band live.They played “Descending” on Wednesday night, which segued into “Jambi,” then into the lone pull from 2000’s Salival, “Third Eye” before ending the set with a monstrous rendition of “Forty-Six & 2.”Sound difficulties, marked largely by the rushed techs in the background and during intermission, gave a muddy feeling to the usually crisp sound of the SAP Center but took a backseat to the experience as a whole.Detailed visual imagery, either specifically created music videos (commercially released or not) combined with an intricate laser show that spanned over tens of strategically placed mirrors around the stage and arena created a truly multi-level experience between sound, sight, and meaning.After set-break, a countdown of 12 minutes appeared in the six-sided star logo that hung over center stage, and when it hit zero, the lights went dark. Carey treated the crowd to an intense and thunderous drum solo, building anticipation for the moment of truth. Tool has been changing their setlist by one song all tour, with Wednesday night’s choices boiled down to either “Vicarious” or “The Pot.” San Jose was given “The Pot.” The trio of songs “Sweat”, “(-) Ions” and “Stinkfist” closed the show just before 11PM sharp.Much like on his tour with A Perfect Circle, Keenan and company did not return to the stage for an encore. In place of additional music, the venue unleashed confetti cannons at the end of the show.Enjoy the full gallery below, by Josh Huver of Must Have Media.Setlist: Tool | SAP Center | San Jose, California | 6/21/17I: The Grudge, Parabol, Parabola, Schism, Opiate, AEnema, Descending, Jambi, Third Eye, Forty-Six & 2II: Drum Solo, The Pot, Sweat, (-) Ions, StinkfistTool | SAP Center | San Jose, California | 6/21/17 | Photos by Josh Huver Photo: Joshua Huver Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Gov’t Mule Debuts The Yardbirds Cover With Magpie Salute Members In Mankato [Video]

first_imgLast night, Gov’t Mule’s summer tour continued with a stop at the Verizon Wireless Center in Mankato, Minnesota. Once again, The Magpie Salute opened the night and returned to the stage later in the evening to join Gov’t Mule’s encore with back-to-back covers of Blind Faith‘s “Presence of the Lord” and the band’s debut of The Yardbirds‘ “Shapes Of Things”.To open the show, the Magpie Salute—featuring Rich Robinson and other ex-members of The Black Crowes—heavily leaned on their new album, High Water I, also sneaking in a cover of The Black Crowes’ “Thorn In My Pride” and The Byrds’ “Eight Miles High, for their forty-five-minute set.Warren Haynes and company took the stage next for one single set, pulling heavily on their original material, with selections from 2017’s Revolution Come…Revolution Go on mighty full display. Almost halfway through the set, they played the album’s title track then welcomed out Matt Slocum for “Girl With No Self-Esteem” from the same record. The Magpie Salute keyboardist stuck around for a cover of Jeff Beck‘s “Freeway Jam” before Mule closed their set with a band-only “Mule”.As has been the custom for this tour, Mule also brought up members of The Magpie Salute for the encore. Rich Robinson,  Matt Slocum, guitarist Marc Ford, and vocalist John Hogg joined Gov’t Mule for smoking covers of Blind Faith’s “Presence of the Lord” and The Yardbirds’ “Shapes Of Things”, with the latter marking Mule’s debut of the cover.Watch fan-shot video of the double encore below:[Video: alzeppelin]Gov’t Mule has three more shows with The Magpie Salute before they team up with Lukas Nelson & The Promise of the Real in Sun Valley, ID.

Hitting diabetes where we eat

first_imgTaxes on sugary beverages seem to cut consumption, a Harvard public health expert said Tuesday, describing the sometimes controversial tariffs as one path of attack against the U.S. diabetes epidemic.Sara Bleich, a professor of public health policy at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Carol K. Pforzheimer Professor at the Radcliffe Institute, said that a preliminary analysis of Philadelphia’s six-month-old 1.5-cent per-ounce tax shows sales dropping 57 percent by volume.“Consuming those drinks is very tightly linked to both obesity and diabetes,” Bleich said of the single largest source of added sugar in the American diet.Philadelphia’s tax-related drop came amid reports that consumption of soda and other sugary beverages has been in decline nationwide, said Bleich, speaking as part of a panel at the Harvard Chan School on the toll of diabetes and the future of treating the disease.LaShawn McIver, senior vice president of government affairs and advocacy for the American Diabetes Association, noted that the metabolic disorder is the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S., killing more than AIDS and breast cancer combined, and costs the country $322 billion annually.One in 11 Americans — some 30 million people — has diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Many more — about 84 million — have prediabetes. Complicating the picture, McIver said, is that nearly 90 percent of the latter group aren’t aware of the threat.“This is a huge issue from a public health perspective,” McIver said.Diabetes is closely linked to the nation’s obesity epidemic, with nearly 90 percent of those with type 2 diabetes — the vast majority of cases — also overweight or obese. The root problem, Bleich said, is that we live in an environment rich in cheap, convenient, calorie-laden foods, and an era of increasingly sedentary lifestyles.“Diet is a huge driver of the diabetes epidemic, and this is important because a person’s ability to control their diabetes is very dependent on their ability to select foods or be in an environment that allows them to control their blood sugar,” Bleich said.That’s where food policy comes in, she said. Policy can alter the food environment and make consumers less dependent on willpower alone. Taxes alter environment by making cost a more significant factor. Another effective tactic, Bleich said, is requiring calorie counts on restaurant menus, so that customers can consider not just price and taste, but also the health effects of meals.Requiring calorie counts on menus began in New York in 2006 and has since spread to other states, Bleich said. A federal version of the requirement contained in the Affordable Care Act is set to take effect next year. The measures have had less impact on consumer choices than on restaurants, which have been dropping the highest-calorie dishes and adding new ones that average 12 percent less, a difference of roughly 60 calories.“It sounds small, but at a population level, if you can extract that number of calories out of the diet, it can actually have a pretty big impact on levels of both obesity risk and diabetes risk,” Bleich said.Panelists also discussed the role of technology in treating the disease. Continuous glucose monitors use a probe under the skin to keep tabs on blood sugar, with data uploaded for doctors to review. They can also send out help signals.Howard Wolpert, vice president for medical innovation at the Lilly Innovation Center, said that technology can both improve blood sugar control — reducing risk of complications such as blindness, kidney failure, and infections — and make medical care more efficient. People whose blood sugars are relatively stable can see the doctor less frequently, while those with erratic sugars can keep regular appointments.Telemedicine, Wolpert said, has the potential to make a bigger difference, extending the reach of physicians to underserved communities, like Native Americans and Inuits, in which care is scarce but rates of diabetes are high.last_img read more

Melody Betts on Touring the Country with The Sound of Music

first_imgMelody Betts in ‘The Sound of Music'(Photo: Matthew Murphy) View Comments In the final moments of The Sound of Music’s first act, Melody Betts takes center stage as Mother Abbess as she delivers the last verse of “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” with a pure, commanding soprano. Before taking on the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical in the current North American tour, Betts had audiences giving mid-show standing ovations as a featured soloist in Invisible Thread off-Broadway. Below, the unforgettable performer talk to Broadway.com about bringing her own faith to the stage, feeling inspired by Audra McDonald and her secret off-stage riffing.Hi, Melody! How’s touring life treating you?It’s good! I thought it was going to be difficult, but it’s not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I’m finding my way around. The hardest thing is probably laundry.How did the opportunity to play this role arise? They were looking for another Mother Abbess as Ashley Brown was pregnant, and my manager said, “I think you should go in.” Now, I’m thinking there’s no way. The Sound of Music is traditionally cast all white. For me to come in, I thought, was a huge adjustment for the audiences. But I decided, “What the heck?” I caught up with my friend Matt Gould [co-writer of Invisible Thread], we had some voice lessons, and then I went in.What was the audition process like? It was really great. I was the only one who looked like me in the room, which was intimidating. But by the end of it, we were all in tears. I was hoping I would have the job by the end of that. But I left, and by the time I got off the bus, I got the phone call.Did seeing Audra McDonald play the role on NBC provide any comfort or assurance? Absolutely. If I ever get the chance, I’d love to thank her. I’m a huge advocate for respect and love to the ones who have gone before me. It meant a whole lot that Audra did the role, and that she did it so beautifully; that allowed people to see that a woman of color could do this. She is one of the reasons why I could be put in this place.I know faith is an important part of your life. How does that inform your performance as the Mother Superior? It makes it a lot easier. As myself, I’m always tapping into my relationship with God, so I’ve added that to my performance. You’ll see me [on stage] actually taking a moment to ask God what to do next. I’ll look up, have an internal prayer and actually thank the Lord for the answers. I know what it’s like to come to a decision of whether or not I’m going to follow God.You also played a religious figure in Invisible Thread. In both, your character goes against what others in the church community might expect. Is that something you relate to personally? I think Christians get a bad rep because there are people in the world who claim Christ but forget that when Christ walked the earth, He hung out with everybody. Sometimes when people become Christians, they focus on the legalism of it instead of the love. There has to be a balance. The world is in need of love.That certainly rings true in both performances. One of the major differences, though, is your vocal style. In Invisible Thread, you belted up a storm. Here, it’s all classical. How do you find the balance between the two types of singing? When I hit the stage, I sing classically. When I’m singing backstage, I riff. I have to keep that part of my voice active. I started out singing in the church, and that’s where you learn that riffing. But I actually trained classically, too. Even though I don’t use that part of my voice that much, it’s in my bag of skills. I was able to go back into my bag and dust that off. And yes, there was some dust collecting!What’s your earliest memory of The Sound of Music? Like most people, Julie Andrews in the movie. It was always “My Favorite Things.” There was something about that song that always made me happy. I remember as a child singing those lyrics just out of the blue sometimes.And unlike the movie version, you’re the one who gets to sing it. Exactly! Now I know the real words; I don’t have to make them up.Representation and diversity are integral to this Broadway season, and hopefully that’s not just a trend. What does it mean for you to be a part of that this year off-Broadway and on tour? I’m so elated. I’m not going to be at the Tonys or anything like that, but I am a part of theater at this time. That alone is everything. Right now, Hollywood is not making the mark when it comes to acknowledging people of color. In theater, it’s a different feeling. I’m proud of the theater community for stepping up. That’s exactly what we need.Do you find that that resonates with audiences across the country? I realize there are a lot of little people who look like me–or some form of me–out in the audience. Even if they don’t want to be an actor, I just need them to know that whatever it is they’re looking toward, it’s possible. I grew up in the hood of Chicago. I was discouraged and was told my future wasn’t very bright. That was a lie, and now I’m living the truth. You don’t have to be left to despair and doubt. You can believe and work hard, and you can see all your dreams come true. You have the power to make that happen. That’s why I’m here.last_img read more

NYC Woman Married 10 Men, 2 on Long Island, Prosecutors Say

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York She said “yes” to the dress—10 times.Liana Barrientos, 38, of Manhattan, has been charged with filing a false marriage license, a felony, after marrying 10 men over the course of 11 years without ever filing for divorce from any of the grooms, Bronx prosecutors said.The Bronx District Attorney’s office said Barrientos also married two men on Long Island in 2002—in Hempstead and Huntington.According to a criminal complaint, 2002 was a particularly busy year for the alleged serial bride. During that year, she filed six different marriage licenses in her name, prosecutors said.Authorities uncovered the alleged wedding spree after scrutinizing a March 2010 marriage license filed in the Bronx County Clerk’s office that stated Barrientos had never been married before, according to the criminal complaint.Investigators found a marriage license dating back to Nov. 5, 1999. The license was filed in Eastchester.Since then, licenses were allegedly filed in Rye, Yonkers, Greenburgh, Mamaroneck and White Plains.The Hempstead marriage took place on Valentine’s Day in 2002. Exactly one month later another license was filed under her name in Huntington, authorities said.Barrientos, who was originally arrested last November, is scheduled to be arraigned Friday at Bronx Supreme Court.last_img read more

The reliable branch

first_img 23SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Chad Davis Chad Davis is Industry Sr Solutions Marketing Manger, F5 Networks, which is the leader in app security and multi-cloud management. He can be reached at [email protected] Web: https://www.f5.com Details Personalized member service has always been a top priority of credit unions. Although that mentality still reigns true, modern-day customer service has evolved and employees are looking into different ways of helping their members.These days, members are looking for more than just familiar face from their financial services providers. They require a wider range of products and services, a full array of delivery channel options, and account access whenever and wherever they want it. On top of that, members continue to appreciate traditional, old-fashioned personal service. This is especially true of consumers more inclined to take their business to a financial institution that claims to be different from its competitors. If a credit union promises to put members first, the frontline service it provides should clearly demonstrate that commitment.What do credit unions need to do to satisfy their members by successfully creating the amalgam of modern-day banking and individualized attention? Several timeless aspects of one-to-one personal service, combined with technological tools for branch management, can help target the types of transactions and guidance members are seeking so the financial professionals staffing each branch can anticipate and deliver on those needs.Different members, different branch. Branches tend to reflect the character of their surroundings and, in general, the types of members who choose those locations. Branches in family-friendly neighborhoods serve different needs than a branch with a prime spot in a business park. And neither serves the same type of members as the office within walking distance of residential developments that cater to active seniors.A demographic survey can sketch in the outlines of the types of services a branch can expect to be in demand in its market area. Using data from the core processing system and lobby tracker software can supply more detailed information about members’ requests for service so frontline employees can be trained and scheduled to be on hand and fully prepared to deliver the services members expect when they walk through the door.Make business personal. Members want to be treated like people, not account numbers. Lobby tracking software invites members to sign in and state their business. Access to this information up-front facilitates queuing and gives financial professionals the information they need to greet members promptly and personally.Keep it short and sweet. On the other hand, overscheduling staff results in employees standing around idly when branch usage is low and can increase costs for credit unions. By monitoring branch traffic, they can more effectively schedule full- and part-time employees to be on hand during periods of peak demand.The 2017 FMSI Teller Line Study, which analyzed patterns in more than 16 million branch transactions at  credit unions across the country, found that mornings are generally less busy than lunch hours and afternoons. Credit unions can combine core processing data with information from lobby tracker software to conduct individual branch analyses of types and volumes of transactions to better align scheduling with members’ banking habits.Try using this friendly greeting: “I’ve got everything ready for you.” For the most part, the technology supports discussed thus far to improve branch service delivery operate in the background, but one new automated tool is designed to connect directly with members. Busy people appreciate the benefits of appointment-scheduling software as it ensures that their time spent in the branch is being used efficiently and effectively—no waiting when they arrive and any preparation, such as having the right forms and documents lined up, completed in advance. Appointment apps also supply useful data for branch managers to track what types of transactions and guidance members are seeking.There’s more to service delivery than service. Staff scheduling software can help credit unions reduce idle time among branch employees and identify blocks of time where secondary duties, such as outbound sales calls, can be assigned with the aim of enhancing revenue production.The teller line study quantifies the impact of smarter scheduling and other strategies to improve branch efficiency on teller productivity and labor costs. According to that analysis, tellers working for FMSI’s top 10 clients, based on productivity measurements, handled an average 20.3 transactions per hour, compared to the 13.1 average for all credit unions included in the study. Labor costs per transaction for top performers averaged 94 cents, compared to $1.30 for all credit unions.Fully understanding members and their banking preferences and their habits —what brings them to a branch and when and where they prefer to conduct these transactions—can help credit unions personalize customer interactions, reduce wait time, and schedule staff more efficiently. While technology has pushed members to redefine high-quality service, it can also help deliver on those expectations branch by branch.last_img read more

Million homes won’t be revalued after shock decision by Queensland’s Valuer-General

first_imgOnly 22 of Queensland’s 62 rateable LGAs will be valued next year.The decision marked the first time in eight years that the Valuer-General won’t have the capital city in his annual Queensland revaluations.Mr Mountford said “in both 2015 and 2016, landowners in Brisbane’s CBD raised significant concerns with their annual land valuations”.“In 2016, almost 1,200 objections were lodged across Brisbane, 241 of them for properties over $5 million – most of them in the CBD. A similar number were lodged in the previous year. Given this level of debate about statutory valuations in Brisbane in recent years, its clearly an odd decision not to revalue the State’s capital city.”Mr Mountford said major, diverse markets like Brisbane needed to be valued every year “to ensure the tax system remains fair and equitable”.“Has the government made this decision because the State Valuation Service doesn’t have the resources to undertake the task? Or perhaps the State is looking to ensure its land tax revenue is locked in at a certain level for next year? Either way, it’s not the basis of a fair tax system.” Property Council QLD executive director Chris Mountford said the move was not a good look for the state. Picture: Mark CallejaMore from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investorless than 1 hour agoMr Bray said the 2018 valuations – to be released in March next year – would involve 492,000 properties making up about 29 per cent of Queensland’s valuation roll.The LGAs that would get new valuations were Banana, Barcoo, Boulia, Bulloo, Central Highlands, Charters Towers, Diamantina, Douglas, Fraser Coast, Gladstone, Gold Coast, Goondiwindi, Hinchinbrook, Isaac, Maranoa, Murweh, Noosa, Paroo, Quilpie, Scenic Rim, Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba.“Valuations are issued annually across the state, except in unusual circumstances or where it is determined there has been insufficient market movement in a local government area to warrant an annual valuation being issued,” he said.

In Brisbane, for example, there were some small pockets that showed some change, however overall the changes did not justify inclusion in the annual valuation program,” he said.But Property Council Queensland executive director Chris Mountford was unconvinced, warning the move raised serious questions about the state’s valuation system – especially when the capital city was bypassed.“A significant number of transactions were undertaken in the 2016-2017 financial year, which would help inform new valuations.

USG resolution addresses custodian wages, health care

first_imgTwo outgoing Undergraduate Student Government officials presented a resolution Tuesday at the Senate meeting that aims to improve the compensation and benefits for custodians working at USC. USG President Debbie Lee proposed the budget for the 2018-19 academic year. Yuwei Xi | Daily TrojanThe USG Senate also voted unanimously in favor of approving the final USG hires for the 2018-19 academic year.Outgoing director of external affairs Mai Mizuno explained that the  custodian resolution aims to improve conditions for custodians at USC.“First, we want to reduce the out-of-pocket cost that they have to pay monthly for their health care from 7 percent to 6 percent,” she said. “Secondly, [we want] to have a comparable wage increase to the wages of other workers downtown.”Mizuno later explained that the resolution does not ask for a specific wage standard for custodians. It merely asks for wages comparable to those of other custodians working downtown who make $16.60 an hour, Mizuno said.Before presenting the details of the resolution, Mizuno read testimonials of two custodians who work at USC. She did not say their names. The first custodian testimonial came from a woman who has worked at USC for 11 years.“We would like to urge students to use their voices to stand up for us and ask the administration to pressure its subcontractor, Aramark, to address our grievances,” she wrote. “For some time now we have felt undervalued, belittled and treated like we weren’t important.”The second custodian testimonial came from a man who has worked at USC for 24 years.“We have seen many of our coworkers become disabled as a result of our workload,” he said. “What we would like to ask all of you is to ask the University to hold the company, Aramark, to be more conscious of the workload that has caused illness, stress and increased work pressure on my coworkers.”Mizuno also said that both the outgoing and incoming leadership of USG have supported for the resolution.Senator Michaela Murphy delivered a message of solidarity with the entire community, explaining why she is sponsoring the resolution.“I wish it went without saying that when we, as members of this community here at USC, say that we support fellow Trojans, we mean all Trojans here at USC,” she said. “But time and time again, we have seen that is not been the case, specifically with the treatment of the custodial staff here at USC.”Incoming USG President Debbie Lee also presented a comprehensive USG budget proposal for the 2018-19 academic year. The total budget is roughly $2.07 million.Part of the proposed budget is a subscription to The New York Times which would cost $8,000 and would provide 100 print copies to be distributed across campus on a daily basis. Some senators, however, raised concerns about how funding such an initiative would reduce the amount of funding that could be distributed to existing organizations that may need more funding.The USG Senate will vote on the custodian resolution and the 2018-19 USG budget in next week’s Senate meeting.last_img read more

Iowa Courts website adds multi-pay option

first_imgThere’s a new feature that will help those using the state’s busiest website complete transactions faster. Iowa Judicial System spokesman, Steve Davis, says there’s now a shopping cart feature on the pay site for Iowa Courts Online that allows you to bundle court fees.“You can pay multiple fines at one time instead of jumping back and forth between sites and having to do them one at a time,” Davis says. He says you still start by searching for any fines you owe at Iowa Courts Online site.“And then you can click on the individual case numbers and dig a little deeper and find the financials, and you can just then go through and find one case and say you’ll pay that and add it to your shopping cart. And then go back to the list of cases if there is more and find another case and pay for that,”Davis explains. Davis says the site allows for payments from all 99 counties — which makes it a heavily used site.“Iowa Courts Online is the most frequently visited website in state government,” according to Davis. Every year we have more than 538-million page views.” Davis says there is still the option to pay the old fashioned way.“Some people still go into the courthouse and pay their fines and restitution — but most people do it online — and that’s one of the reasons why the shopping cart was added, for more convenience for those people who do pay it online,” Davis says. Davis says the shopping cart is similar to what is used on most other online sites.last_img read more

Post post-season begins tonight

first_imgThe Miller and Etiwanda girls basketball teams will host CIF Division I state playoff games tonight – a season that exists for an increasing number of San Bernardino County and Inland Valley basketball teams. The No. 2-seed Rebels will host No. 15 Los Angeles Dorsey tonight while No. 5 Etiwanda will take on No. 12 Perris After pouring their hearts and souls in to the CIF-Southern Section season and making that the main goal, the teams are faced with a post-postseason. How much effort and emphasis can be placed on a tournament that is normally just a bonus round? “It’s anti-climatic after this,” Ayala coach Mel Sims said after winning the section championship on Saturday night. “This is what you work for right here. The rest is icing on the cake.” The Norco girls, for example, were crushed after their loss to Miller in the sectional finals. The Cougars had their sights on a CIF-SS title, but came up five points short. Now, they’ve been given the No. 3 seed in D2 and could have a potential matchup at Ayala, which plays Sanger Thursday, on Saturday. Ten local teams advanced to the state playoff level, with No. 16 Kaiser boys – which plays at No. 1 Los Angeles Fairfax – and No. 11 Arroyo Valley – which heads to No. 6 Los Alamitos – playing tonight in D1 as well. All games tip off at 7 p.m. The state tournaments are filled with more area teams than ever, making for a bit of an unusual dilemma. center_img The winner of that game would play at Pauley Pavilion on March 17 with a trip to the state finals in Sacramento on the line. In the past, that line of thinking just hasn’t been realistic for area teams. Diamond Ranch won a first-round state playoff game last year. There are some powerful area teams that certainly seem capable of replicating that feat tonight. But any team making a run at the state title – Miller and Ayala being the leading local candidates to do so – would be practically unprecedented. The 1986 Chino girls basketball team was the D2 state runner-up. Before that, the Banning boys finished second in 1982. Those are the only two area teams to reach the state basketball finals. But with the record success for girls basketball in the area – this year had more CIF finalists than ever – is it time for area girls teams to start setting their sights higher? Tonight’s games should start to provide the answer. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Paid too much

first_img“This store has probably lost all its good salespeople,” O’Neal said. “This morning we were all really pissed, but now I laugh about it. What can you do?” The company chairman said it’s just a business decision. “We’re taking a number of aggressive actions to improve our cost and expense structure,” Philip Schoonover, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Circuit City Stores Inc., said in a written statement. O’Neal said he was told he can re-apply for his job after 10 weeks – if he’s willing to work for minimum wage. Currently, California minimum wage is $7.50 an hour. However, company spokesman Jim Babb said new hires will earn more than minimum wage, though he would not specify an hourly rate. Hiring will start immediately, and job candidates will not be required to have sales experience, he said. Salary cuts, the termination of a lease for a distribution center in Ohio, and an outsourcing agreement with IBM will save the chain $110 million, the Richmond, Va.-based retailer said. Last month the company announced it will close seven of its 643 locations and relocate one store. It reported falling profits in the fourth quarter and has been losing market share to Best Buy since 1996. The company is the nation’s second-largest consumer-electronics retailer, trailing Best Buy by $16 billion in sales in 2006. News of the layoffs apparently pleased Wall Street, pushing up Circuit City’s stock 2 percent after the announcement. It closed up $0.35 at $19.23. Timing of the layoffs, two weeks before performance reviews that often come with pay raises, spooked a Circuit City employee who was not laid off and earns $10.50 an hour. He refused to give his name because of a policy that employees not speak to the media. “You’re going to walk in the (manager’s) door, and for the first time you’re going to say I don’t want a raise,” he said. “If you take the raise, will you lose your job?” The employee said he was not worried about the salary cap because his long-term career goals are in medicine. Specialized electronic companies are being pressured by increased competition from rivals Best Buy and Wal-Mart as the price of flat-screen televisions falls, several analysts said. Circuit City’s woes are also due to its stores, said analyst Andy Hargreaves of Pacific Crest Securities in Portland, Ore. In the 1990s, the chain didn’t invest in its stores or open enough new locations while Best Buy did, he said. “What they ended up with were a bunch of old crappy stores, and now they’re still feeling the pain of that,” Hargreaves said. The cuts will boost Circuit City’s short-term outlook but could kill the stores in the long term if new hires don’t offer the same level of customer service, said Jack Kyser, vice president and chief economist at Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. “At the end of the day, it’s still the interaction between somebody on the selling floor and the customer,” Kyser said. “If there’s not a reason to come back because of bad service, that’s the kiss of death.” But as consumers become more savvy, learning the difference between plasma televisions and liquid crystal display or LCD sets, experienced salesmen may not be as needed. Cutting experienced salespeople sends a message to Circuit City`s remaining employees and competitors, said Dan Blake, director of the San Fernando Valley Economic Research Center at California State University, Northridge. “It’s certainly going to hurt employee morale,” which is a big factor in productivity, he said. But the cuts also signal rival Best Buy that Circuit City will continue to fight for market share. “These folks are not closing down and going out without a fight,” Blake said. Circuit City is scheduled to announce first-quarter earnings April 4. [email protected] (818) 713-3735 At $15 an hour, Richard O’Neal was one of the better-paid salesmen at the Circuit City in Woodland Hills. His career there ended about 8:15 a.m. Wednesday in a mandatory meeting for workers being laid off. Their transgression: They cost too much money. O’Neal and about a dozen of his co-workers are among 3,400 nationwide dismissed by the company, which will replace them with lower-paid employees. The dismissed employees received a memo saying, in part, that the company “made a business decision, with respect to certain positions, to separate from employment hourly associates whose pay rate is 51 cents or more above (an) established pay range.” last_img

‘Pure luck’ as pair rescued from sea by Lough Swilly Ferry heroes

first_imgTwo people’s lives were saved by a crew of unexpected heroes today off the coast of Rathmullan.The Lough Swilly Ferry took passengers on a detour from a routine crossing from Buncrana when a sailboat capsized and a man and woman went into the water.The uncle and niece from Co. Down were on holiday in Donegal when the accident occurred at 1.20pm. They were sailing off Kinnegar Beach when their small 10ft craft began to take in water and suddenly capsized. The pair were wearing buoyancy aids to keep them afloat but were in the water for between 20-30 minutes before being rescued. They tried to swim to shore but got caught in the current.The RNLI Lough Swilly lifeboat unit was dispatched to their rescue, but a much bigger help was at hand.Edward Sweeney, skipper of the Lough Swilly Ferry, told Donegal Daily it was ‘pure luck’ that his vessel was close by.“A 999 call was made to Malin Head Coast Guard, who contacted us to see if we could do anything. We could see a boat was in trouble and went to their aid. We put the door down and lifted them onto the ferry,” he said. “By pure luck, when we got the call we were only 200 metres away from them.”“We got them climbed onto to the ferry, but the man was in a bit of shock. By then, the lifeboat crew reached us and we brought them onboard too. We wrapped the man and woman in blankets, brought them inside and gave them hot drinks,” Edward said.Lough Swilly Ferry and Lough Swilly RNLI Rescue, 28th August 2017. Photo: Kevin Mc AteerA Letterkenny ambulance was waiting at the pier for the ferry’s arrival to check over the rescuees. Fortunately, they were not injured and are both well after their ordeal.The Lough Swilly Ferry service had to issue an apology to their customers this afternoon to say they were running 25 minutes late, although saving two lives at sea would make for a reasonable excuse for a short delay!Edward said he was delighted everything worked out well in the end, in a situation which could have been much worse. “Thankfully someone on the shore called 999. We normally keep an eye out for wee boats when we’re passing to see if any are in difficulty.“The main thing is these two people were alright. People should be aware of the current around Rathmullan and how strong the tide is. It’s amazing how strong the tide is around that beach,” he said.The rescue was a big joint effort from all sides, as another man also tried to paddle out on a surfboard to the pair’s aid.Lough Swilly Ferry crewmen Edward Boyle and Gearoid Collum, along with skipper Edward Sweeney were all part of the extraordinary rescue crew today, who helped the RNLI volunteers with their mission. Edward Sweeney, who has been navigating ferries around Donegal for 20 years, said a real disaster was avoided today.“It just goes to show you, the man did go into shock and was not well and that can go two ways. That’s where the danger point is and we were lucky to get to them in time,” he said.‘Pure luck’ as pair rescued from sea by Lough Swilly Ferry heroes was last modified: August 30th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:beachlough swilly ferryRathmullanrescuernli lough swillylast_img read more

SA matric ‘a good, solid qualification’

first_imgThe report, released in Johannesburg on Wednesday, compared the NSC certificate with the Cambridge International Examinations and the International Baccalaureate Organisation as well as the Namibian Senior Certificate. “Our findings are that this qualification [NSC] is pitched at the correct level. It has got the necessary requirements of a robust qualification .the learners who pass this certificate can compete favourably with learners from other education systems,” Umalusi CEO Rakometsi Mafu said at the release of the report. Equitable admissions policy Hesa manager Cobus Lotter said the research compared the NSC to the Cambridge International Examinations because it had a footprint in South Africa. Data indicates that it has more than 40 centres in the country and over 150 worldwide. 12 August 2010 Source: BuaNews “The South African public can be reassured that the NSC is a good, solid, robust qualification,” said Burroughs. ‘Good, solid qualification’center_img She added that one of the recommendations of the report was to highlight the importance of good teacher training “so that we maintain our credibility in the international education landscape”. Based on these findings, Hesa will then formulate an equitable policy that will lead to consistency in admission decisions. Hesa’s criticisms do, however, hint that there is a clear need for well-qualified teachers in South Africa. Liz Burroughs, a senior manager at Umalusi, said the main aim of the study was to establish the continuity of standards between the old and new qualifications. The NSC replaced the Senior Certificate in 2008. Already, South Africa was the eighth most favourable university destination in the world, he said. The report will further assist in determining the minimum requirements for admission to degree, diploma and higher certificate admission status in the country. A new report issued by education quality assuror Umalusi and Higher Education South Africa (Hesa) finds that the National Senior Certificate (NSC) and its curriculum are on par with international standards, and are favourable when compared to other international qualifications.last_img read more

Waze: Free Turn-by-Turn Directions for Mobile Users

first_imgRelated Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement sarah perez Tags:#mobile#Product Reviews#web What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Since the application is designed to provide traffic alerts, one of its features allows users to contribute additional information like whether that’s a speed trap ahead or just a fender bender slowing things down. Users can upload photos, too, so other Waze drivers can actually see what’s causing the problem. This feature is a little disconcerting, though, since it does require the driver to interact with the phone while behind the wheel. However, Waze encourages the use of these features only when stopped, or even better, by having a passenger enter this info instead. (At least they disabled typing while the car is in motion. Whew!) Also new to Waze is turn-by-turn directions, now available for free within the application. That feature alone should encourage more users to give it a shot, especially those who haven’t purchased their own standalone GPS-based navigation device yet.Early adopters can download the free mobile application from the company’s homepage here. Just remember: this service only arrived in the U.S. this May so at this point, it may be more about helping build the map data than it is about using what’s already there. Waze is a free mobile navigation application which uses crowdsourcing to build its maps. Simply by having the application open and running, drivers using GPS-enabled smartphones can contribute map data to Waze where it then becomes part of the base map. Through passive tracking features which monitor speed, direction, and starts and stops, Waze can also identify traffic patterns to warn you of jams ahead. Drivers who want to take a more active roll in contributing content on hazards and accidents can do so from the app…although hopefully, not while driving. At this week’s DEMOfall 09 conference, Waze announced that their mobile application is now available on the Windows Mobile and Symbian platforms in addition to iPhone and Android. Blackberry, however, is still in the works. What’s most interesting about Waze is how it uses the power of the crowd to build its map database. Just by driving along with the application open, users are contributing data to Waze. Although this does make the service somewhat dependent on building critical mass in order to be successful, the company is confident they can do so. That’s because Waze originally launched in Israel and in less than a year’s time, they already have 91% of the country mapped. Here in the U.S., that process will obviously take longer, but Waze believes they’ll have at least one metropolitan area completed in the next three months – the San Francisco Bay area, of course.

Free Epic Sound Effects for Film & Video Trailers

first_imgLayer, layer, layer. Often sound effects work best when layered and combined. With trailers, where the sound design may be dense, you may need to overlay multiple SFX to really build out the sound palette.

Most video editing applications have at least a few basic audio filters that, when applied to SFX, can dramatically change the sound and feeling. For instance, adding reverb may make an effect sound more ethereal, whereas distortion may work well for a gritty horror or sci-fi trailer. Experiment with filters to customize the sound to fit the needs of your project.Check out our previous post on using sound effects in film and video for three additional tips! Simiilary, this popular post has several tips on the editing process for film trailers.

Here are a few quick tips for getting the most out of this free sound effects pack: Change SFX speed or reverse it. With new advancements in video editing apps, you can not only change the speed of any audio, but you can also preserve the pitch as well. This is especially useful for SFX that build – you may need to speed up the build, but you don’t want it to sound like high-pitched chipmunk squeals. Also, with some SFX you can create really interesting sounds by simply reversing the audio (again, easy to do in most NLEs).last_img read more

MS Dhoni records second-slowest fifty for India in ODIs

first_imgMS Dhoni recorded India’s second-slowest ODI fifty when he took a 108 balls to reach the mark against West Indies in the 4th ODI at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Sunday.Sadagoppan Ramesh has scored the slowest half century for India against Kenya in 1999 while former India captain Sourav Ganguly is third on the list for his 105-ball fifty against Sri Lanka in 2005.On a pitch that Virat Kohli called two-paced, Dhoni showed immense patience to reach the half century but his effort went in vain as West Indies stunned India by 11 runs on Sunday.Indian bowlers had done an excellent job to restrict West Indies to a mere 190 with Umesh Yadav and Hardik Pandya picking 3 wickets each even as Kuldeep Yadav continued to impress by pitching in with 2 wickets.In reply to that, India had a shaky start as they lost Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli early on and Dinesh Karthik failed on his comeback but Ajinkya Rahane and Dhoni showed grit and determination to play the balls patiently and stay put.Rahane fell to Devendra Bishoo at 60 and Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav were unable to stitch a partnership with Dhoni as they lost their wickets for 10 and 20 respectively.When Jadeja came on the crease, the situation was pretty much in control with almost a-run-a-ball needed but Jadeja played an irresponsible shot to throw his wicket away and when Dhoni got out in attempt of a big shot in the 49th over, it was all over for India.advertisementWest Indies captain Jason Holder lead from the front and grabbed his first 5-wicket haul in ODIs.India lead the series 2-1 and the fifth ODI will be played in Jamaica on July 6.last_img read more

Maidstone’s revival after going bust in the Football League offers Bury hope

first_imgBut the alarm bells did ring for Barton as he left the club. “When I got sold for £300,000, which was a considerable amount of money at the time, one of the owners immediately bought himself a brand new Jag. I thought it was a little odd that the first thing they did with the money went into a nice car.”In truth, the problems had started a few years before. The club sold their London Road ground in 1988 to furniture chain MFI and moved into a groundshare with Dartford 20 miles away. Crowds dropped dramatically. The average gate went from 2,400 to 1,400 even though they were riding high in the Conference. In the club’s first season playing at Dartford, they somehow won the league. Manager John Still had taken the club to the Football League for the first time in their 92-year history.Although, just like Bury’s promotion to League One last season proved to be a false dawn, this step up for Maidstone signalled the start of bigger problems. The club’s owners spent £400,000 on land to build a new 10,000-seat stadium, but the local council refused them planning permission and the debt started to weigh heavily on the club’s finances. And, after gaining promotion, Still decided that he did not want the full-time role as manager and left the club.As the finances took a nosedive, the exodus gathered pace. By the start of the 1991-92 season, there were just two players left on the books: Gary Stebbing and Glen Donegal. Just as the fanfare of the newly launched Premier League was reverberating across the media, Maidstone resigned from the Football League unable to fulfil their fixtures. So much for a “whole new ball game”. The polarity in wealth in football was shown in the harshest of lights as the lowest tier of English football was reduced to 22 clubs while those at the top of the game luxuriated in their new television deal with Sky.Maidstone’s rebirth was almost immediate. In a matter of weeks they effectively took over a junior club Maidstone Invicta, who were 10 tiers below in the Kent County League Fourth Division. The club started the long climb back up the divisions, winning successive titles and renaming themselves as Maidstone United in 1997. Most importantly, after many years of nomadic existence they moved back to Maidstone when they opened a new community-owned ground, the Gallagher Stadium, in 2012. As a result of returning home, attendances recovered from a few hundred to more than 2,000. Within two decades they had clawed their way back into the top tier of non-league football, gaining promotion to the National League in 2016. When they were threatened by relegation last season, they turned to Still, who returned as manager in January some 30 years after leaving the club. He could not save them from relegation – they finished bottom of the National League in May – and are now in the sixth tier, but Still has remained at the club as head of football and hopes to see the club recover their Football League status once more.There is a belief that Still will turn things around. “John hasn’t changed,” Barton says. “He gets there at six o’clock in the morning and won’t leave until 10 o’clock at night. Whatever club he has worked with, whether it’s Luton or Dagenham & Redbridge, he always has an affinity with that club.” Barton moved to California 11 years ago and now works for Los Angeles Blues and as a pundit, but Still remains his mentor.

John pulled me to one side and said: ‘What are you worrying about him for? Worry about the other 24 players in the group.’ Little things like that show he understands how to deal with players.”Barton is adamant that lower league clubs need to be preserved. “Football needs to get its house in order as, without Bury and without Maidstone, you wouldn’t have a Premier League. Chris Smalling [who also played for Maidstone] and myself have come out of that club, which shows you that these clubs are important, as you get international players that go on from there. Hopefully it’s a reality check for everyone as it could easily happen to your club.” Supporters of Bury, Bolton and many others can testify to that sentiment.Richard Foster’s book From An Acute Angle is out now and you can follow him on Twitter Twitter Bands FC: a bright idea that is raising thousands for vulnerable children Soccer Read more North Ferriby in four seasons: promoted, relegated, liquidated, resurrected On 13 May 1990, Mark Gall scored a 90th-minute equaliser for Maidstone United in the first leg of their Division Four play-off semi-final at Cambridge United. Going into the second leg at their own ground, Maidstone looked favourites to reach the very first play-off final to be played at Wembley. They seemed to be a club on the up.With the second leg goalless and approaching injury time, Gall was put through on goal and given the chance to score that would win the tie for Maidstone. He put his shot agonisingly wide. In the end, Cambridge won 2-0 in extra-time thanks to two goals from Dion Dublin. He was again on the scoresheet at Wembley as Cambridge beat Chesterfield in the play-off final and won a place in Division Three. Two years later, Cambridge reached the Division Two play-offs, where they battled with Leicester City for a place in the first season of the Premier League.While Cambridge were dreaming of Premier League football in May 1992, Maidstone were playing what turned out to be their last match as a league club. On 2 May 1992, they were beaten 3-0 by Doncaster Rovers at Belle Vue in the final game of the Division Four season. By the time the new season came around, the club had been liquidated and removed from the league. They were the last Football League club face expulsion until Bury suffered the same fate this summer. Whereas Bury had been members of the Football League for 125 years before they were expelled, Maidstone had only been a league club for three seasons – and they did not spend any of them playing in their home town.Warren Barton was in the Maidstone team that played in the Football League and he was also a part of the exodus that began when they lost out on promotion in 1990. Barton was sold to Wimbledon that summer and went on to play 277 times in the Premier League – for the Dons, Newcastle and Derby – as well as earning three England caps under Graham Taylor.Barton learned a lot from his time at Maidstone. “It felt like a really well run professional football club,” he says. “I was working with great coaches such as the ex-West Ham player Tommy Taylor and Keith Peacock, who later worked at Charlton with Alan Curbishley. It was a wonderful time. The training ground was excellent; the equipment and facilities were good; and we were travelling by train to games in first class and were always dressed in blazers. I didn’t notice anything amiss as I was young and just focused on playing.”last_img read more

Paul Finebaum Caller Makes Despicable Comment About QB Tua Tagovailoa

(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)A caller into The Paul Finebaum Show on ESPN made a despicable comment about Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa heading into next weekend’s game against LSU.The caller, Darriel from Columbus, had a suggestion for how the Tigers can beat the seemingly unbeatable Crimson Tide.“The way you beat Alabama is you take out Tua’s knee,” Darriel said, per 247Sports. “Who cares about a head shot? Take out a knee and you got them beat. They still haven’t beaten nobody. I’m glad they’re disrespecting LSU like this. When they knock Tua out and LSU wins and Alabama struggles to beat Mississippi State and then loses to Auburn, it’s over. It is o-v-e-r. That’s the way it’s going to play out, you watch.“The fall is going to be hard and I’m going to love every second of it.”Tua has been dealing with a knee injury this season. He missed part of a game earlier this season after suffering a scary sprain on the field.Finebaum, unsurprisingly, was not happy with the suggestion.“You know me, Darriel, I don’t preach,” Finebaum said. “Anyone that would call into this program or put on Twitter a suggestion in doing serious injury to a college football player is disgusting. It may be legal, but it’s despicable. I can’t believe you would even write that down.”Alabama and LSU are set to meet in Baton Rouge, La. on Saturday, Nov. 3. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. E.T. on CBS.last_img read more

BMW 2016 X1 Following a leak on Tuesday, BMW has lifted the veil off of the all-new second-generation X1. The Munich-based automaker’s next entry-level crossover is scheduled to greet the public for the first time in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.Shorter, wider and taller than the outgoing model, the X1 gets a sharper-looking design that borrows styling cues such as angular headlights, a sculpted hood, and a tall kidney grille from the entry-level 1 Series hatchback sold across Europe. The rear fascia ditches the current model’s L-shape tail lamps in favor of more streamlined units that emphasize the crossover’s width. All told, the second-gen X1 boasts a much more harmonious design than the current model.The cockpit features a familiar layout but it gains a 6.5-inch multimedia screen located on top of the dashboard and a longer center console. The soft-roader continues to offer BMW’s familiar no-nonsense analog instrument cluster and a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel. Trunk space checks in at 17.8 cubic feet with five occupants on board, a generous increase compared to the outgoing model’s 14.8 cubes, while folding down the rear seats clears up over 54 cubic feet.The X1 is an entry-level model in name only, and buyers can spruce it up by choosing from a long list of high-tech options including a heads-up display, full LED headlights, BMW’s Dynamic Damper Control and power-adjustable rear seats.At launch, the crossover will exclusively be available with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 228 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 foot-pounds of torque at just 1,250 rpm. Linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the turbo four sends the X1 from zero to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 130 mph, though BMW can raise that figure to 143 mph at an extra cost.The X1 shares its front-wheel drive UKL platform with the MINI Hardtop and the 2 Series Active Tourer, but all models come standard with BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system. However, a more affordable front-wheel drive version could join the lineup a little later in the production run.After greeting the show-going public in Frankfurt, the 2016 BMW X1 will go on sale across the nation next fall. Pricing and fuel economy figures will be published in the weeks leading up to its on-sale date. 6 Fastest Cars in the World Right Now Editors’ Recommendations center_img A Breakdown of All the Major Types of Car Racing The New Land Rover Defender Is Just as Glorious as We Expected The Bulletproof, Million-Dollar Ramsmobile SUV Has an Optional Hookahlast_img read more

Researchers Plotting Safe Northwest Passage Course

first_imgzoom A German-Canadian research team has been conducting preparatory work to develop a system for a safe navigation through the icy waters of the Northwest Passage.A research team, coordinated by German Fraunhofer Institute for Communication, Information Processing and Ergonomics FKIE, aims at establishing a monitoring and information system that would enable ships to navigate safely through the passage in the future.The project entitled PASSAGES (Protection and Advanced Surveillance System for the Artic: Green, Efficient, Secure) is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as well as the project partners Airbus, exact Earth, and Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada.Wolfgang Koch, Head of Sensor Data and Information Fusion at FKIE, said that enabling the safe navigation through the passage is not an easy task because the route is challenging not only due to the presence of a number of bays, islands, uncharted shoals and narrows, but also because of drift ice and extreme weather conditions.In addition, vessels sometimes do not record their positions or (in cases like those of illegal fishing vessels) record false positions. The system has to provide reliable information about all of that.According to Fraunhofer, one of the problems is that there is little data available, because of the lack of infrastructure in sensor and communication technology. The entire route is larger than Western Europe and is sparsely populated. Even if there were sufficient data these would have to be processed into information which would be useful for stakeholders such as ship crews, Fraunhofer said.The researchers are addressing all of these difficulties by developing concepts about which technology can gather what information and where and how it can be fused.“The difficulty is to bring together very diverse and inaccurate data in order to provide for instance decision support for ship captains to decide on which route to take when,“ Koch said.The researchers said they need to create algorithms for the fusion of sensor data.The first thing to do is to tap data sources in the harsh climate zone. The Automatic Identification System (AIS) can be used, which reports among other information ships‘ current position. In addition, there are satellite images. Even old sonar systems from the Cold War era could be resurrected, the researchers said.However, a high-resolution view by means of which captains could safely pilot through the water does not yet exist. Koch is therefore still hoping for another data provider – the passive radar.Ships could navigate safely through the Northwest Passage in the future.This technology uses the electromagnetic pollution from mobile stations near the coast. Receiving stations will tap into this and gain information about ships and ice blocks – their size, position and speed. In this way, Koch said that large areas can be monitored. Other possibilities are unmanned vehicles that gather information below and above water.As the polar ice caps are melting, the Northwest Passage is becoming navigable for longer periods of the year. Ship traffic, however, still bears hazardous risks, according to Fraunhofer. The goal of the project is to change this.The sea route is said to be important for the federal government of Germany, due to its economic benefits.“For a country dependent on exports, such as Germany, shorter sea routes are of great importance,“ Koch said. “Compared to the route between East Asia and Europe via the Suez Canal, the route via the Northwest Passage is about 5,000 nautical miles shorter, which means enormous savings for ship owners,“ Koch added.The researchers hope that the project would evolve from a research into a development project. An operational system would be a great asset for shipping companies, coast guards, maritime authorities as well as for insurance companies, the researchers claim.Referring to insurance companies, Koch said that they could calculate premiums for the ships that are to be insured. After the tricky route is made manageable through safe navigation, ship owners would not have to spend so much on insurance coverage.It will take at least a decade until the navigation system is ready to be launched, according to Fraunhofer. Over these years, the route is expected to become progressively ice-free and economically navigable for shipping traffic.“As dramatic as global warming is, we try to get at least something positive out of it,“ Koch said.last_img read more

Give Lottery and Scratch Tickets Responsibly this Holiday Season

first_imgThe Nova Scotia Provincial Lotteries and Casino Corporation (NSPLCC) is reminding Nova Scotians to keep age in mind when giving lottery products as gifts this holiday season. “Lottery and Scratch ‘N Win tickets can be fun stocking stuffers for adults, but they are not child’s play,” said Bob MacKinnon, NSPLCC’s president and CEO. “Even though it might seem innocent, lottery and scratch tickets are forms of gambling that are only appropriate for adults.” Parents, caregivers and family members are influential role models for children. It is important that they help prevent youth from gambling. “It is important for adults to send a strong message to our kids,” said Mr. MacKinnon. “No matter what the season, minors should not take part in any gambling activity.” The NSPLCC and its ticket lottery operator, Atlantic Lottery, continue to take measures to ensure adults and youth understand this responsibility. This includes placing the age of majority messaging on ticket lottery products and confirming ticket lottery retailers are committed to enforcing the 19+ laws. The NSPLCC also participates in McGill University’s Holiday Campaign, which is a way to remind people that they can keep the fun in the holidays by gifting lottery tickets responsibly to adults.last_img read more

Sri Lanka releases 34 Indian fishermen

India’s gifting of the Katchatheevu Island to Sri Lanka in the ’70s has reduced fishing space available for Indian fishermen. Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, who has been demanding retrieval of the island, has mooted the idea of entering into a long-term lease agreement with the Lankan government so that Indian fishermen could legally use Lankan waters for fishing. He said the first lot of 19 had been taken to Talaimannar in Sri Lanka’s northwest, and the Indian consul in Jaffna was trying to gain access to them.Fishermen from both countries often stray into each other’s territory as both countries are divided by a small strip of sea. Over the last 20 years, more than 300 Indian fishermen have reportedly fallen prey to the Lankan navy’s attacks. Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa had written to the Prime Minister on Thursday, asking him to summon the Sri Lankan envoy. “Let Sri Lanka not be emboldened by your silence,” she wrote. Syed Akbaruddin, spokesperson for the External Affairs Ministry, said that Sri Lankan authorities arrested 19 fishermen on Wednesday and another 34 on Thursday for allegedly fishing in Sri Lanka’s waters. Sri Lanka today released 34 of the 53 Indian fishermen allegedly arrested by its Navy. This comes a day after India summoned Sri Lanka’s Deputy High Commissioner and lodged strong protest over the arrests. They had asked Sri Lanka that the fishermen should be released at the earliest, NDTV reported.Sri Lanka said the fishermen were arrested for allegedly fishing in their waters. read more

Canopys never been better says interim CEO as biggest investor set to

Companies in this story: (TSX:WEED)The Canadian Press TORONTO — Canopy Growth Corp.’s interim chief executive says the mood at the cannabis producer has “never been better,” a comment that comes two months after its charismatic co-founder was abruptly ousted from the top job and as pressure mounts for the company to reach profitability.Mark Zekulin says the company is shifting from “building” mode and hefty investments in infrastructure and expansion to “operating” mode.However, he notes that this move is separate from the transition of leadership underway from the previous CEO Bruce Linton and is the “natural progression” for the company and its plans.His comments come one week after Canopy’s largest investor, Constellation Brands, said it expects to record a US$54.8-million loss in its current quarter from its $5-billion investment into the Smiths Falls, Ont.-based company.The New York-based alcohol giant had said in June it was “not pleased” with Canopy’s earnings, and Linton’s surprise termination from the top job followed in July.Zekulin, formerly co-CEO alongside Linton, said last month that he would leave the company once a suitable CEO is found, and the recruitment process is underway. read more

Bank deposits hit as EUIMF bailout for Cyprus agreed

first_imgEUROZONE FINANCE MINISTERS have agreed on a €10 billion bailout package for bankruptcy-threatened Cyprus which will involve a near 10 per cent levy on all bank deposits over €100,000.People with less than €100,000 in their bank accounts will have to pay a one-off tax of 6.75 per cent while those with more will pay 9.9 per cent under a measure that will raise €5.8 billion in additional revenue.Cyprus will also be forced to sell off some €1.4 billion in State assets and raise its corporate tax rate from 10 per cent to 12.5 per cent, the rate currently levied by its fellow bailed-out eurozone nation, Ireland.BBC News quotes a European Central Bank official as saying that Cypriot authorities have already started to take action to ensure that the levy is collected before depositors can withdraw their funds to avoid it.Officials fear that there could be a run on the country’s banks when they reopen on Tuesday after the bank holiday weekend but pictures from the country already show people queuing at ATMs to withdraw funds.The deal comes after Cyprus requested international assistance last June having become badly exposed to the Greek financial crisis. It now becomes the fifth eurozone country to enter a programme of financial assistance and the fourth to take on a full sovereign bailout. All night talksIt had been thought that the deal would involve the EU/IMF ploughing some €17 billion into the country but ten hours of talks late last night and early this morning among EU finance ministers in Brussels saw a deal reached.The belief was that a €17 billion bailout would have increased the country’s debt burden to unsustainable levels as it would have equalled the total annual output of the economy.The International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde, who was involved in discussions, said in a statement: “I welcome the agreement reached today to address Cyprus’ economic challenges.“The IMF has always said that we would support a solution that is sustainable, that is fully financed, and that appropriately allocates the burden sharing.“I believe that the agreed package meets these three objectives. On this basis, I intend to make a recommendation to our Executive Board for the IMF to contribute to the financing of the package.”Russia could also contribute to a portion of the bailout by extending the repayment term of €2.5 billion in financial assistance that it has already provided to Cyprus.In a joint statement the eurogroup said that it expected the board of governors of the European Stability Mechanism, the eurozone’s permanent bailout fund, to approve the financial assistance to Cyprus by the second half of April.Last month: Cyprus holds presidential election following heated campaignlast_img read more

The ban on entering the US for citizens of seven majority Muslim countries that are being ripped apart by war and conflict is pure unadulterated racism and must be condemned,” said AAA-PBP TD Richard Boyd Barrett.

Default imminent without aid from lenders

first_imgGreece cannot make an upcoming payment to the International Monetary Fund on June 5 unless foreign lenders disburse more aid, a senior ruling party lawmaker said on Wednesday, the latest warning from Athens it is on the verge of default.Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s leftist government says it hopes to reach a cash-for-reforms deal in days, although European Union and IMF lenders are more pessimistic and say talks are moving too slowly for that.Greek officials now point to a race against the clock to clinch a deal before payments totalling about 1.5 billion euros ($1.7 billion) to the IMF come due next month, starting with a 300 million euro payment on June 5.“Now is the moment that negotiations are coming to a head. Now is the moment of truth, on June 5,” Nikos Filis, spokesman for the ruling SYRIZA party’s lawmakers, told ANT1 television.“If there is no deal by then that will address the current funding problem, they won’t get any money,” he said.Talks between Greece and its lenders have foundered on Athens’ demand to roll back labour and pension reform as well as lower fiscal targets set under its bailout programme.Among concessions Athens is mulling is a special tax on banking transactions to help raise revenue to meet fiscal targets, though discussion of the levy is at an early stage, two sources close to the talks said.If the talks collapse, Tsipras’s government has made clear it will pay pensioners and public workers before servicing debt.Greek officials have warned several times in recent weeks that Athens could run out of cash, only to then scrape through obligations by resorting to draconian measures such as ordering state entities to hand over cash or in the case of an IMF payment last week, by emptying out an IMF reserves account.Four days before the payment was made, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras wrote to EU and IMF lenders warning that Athens could not make the 750 million euro payment – prompting accusations of a bluff that has deepened mistrust.Still, analysts agree the country’s cash squeeze is increasingly acute and fresh aid will be needed sooner or later to avoid bankruptcy. Ratings agency Moody’s said there was a high likelihood that capital controls and a deposit freeze could be imposed as savers pull deposits from banks over fears of a national bankruptcy and a Greek eurozone exit.The European Central Bank’s governing council is due to meet later on Wednesday and will decide whether to dole out more emergency liquidity assistance to Greek banks, who have been kept on a drip-feed of liquidity injections amid the crisis.Despite the spectre of impending bankruptcy, Tsipras has sought to maintain a brave face in public and will lobby European leaders at the EU summit in Riga this week for a political agreement to break the impasse.Briefing top parliamentary officials in his party on Tuesday, Tsipras said the government was aiming for a deal by June 3 that would release over 7 billion euros in pending aid from the bailout, said one lawmaker who attended the briefing.The premier also expressed optimism that differences with lenders on value-added tax hikes, privatisations and budget targets could be bridged to strike a deal now. Greece is pushing to delay discussion of pension reform to later this year, the lawmaker said.Such a delay would be unlikely to win the sympathy of the lenders, who want Athens to offer more concessions and focus on bridging differences at technical-level talks aimed at trying to make the numbers on work.A deal could still be struck in the coming weeks but will depend on the degree of political will as there are still big gaps in the talks on labour and pension issues, EU Economic Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici said.“The Greek government has shown it can be creative in reimbursing its lenders but we must go quickly (in striking a deal with Greece),” he told a French Senate committee gathering in Paris. “It’s a matter of days and weeks.”In a reminder of the early acrimony in talks between the two sides, Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis told the German weekly Die Zeit that his German counterpart Wolfgang Schaeuble made mistakes in his analysis of Greece.“It is frustrating that we are not able to speak with each other in a context where arguments count more than relative power,” said Varoufakis, who has been sidelined in recent weeks in negotiations with lenders.Source: Reuters Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Turkey condemned by EU leaders for illegal actions

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Turkey has come under fire from leaders of the European Union, who during a meeting in Brussels on Thursday condemned the country for its aggression towards Greece and Cyprus.In a draft common statement, the European Council said that it “strongly condemns Turkey’s continued illegal actions in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea”, and underlined its “full solidarity with Cyprus and Greece”.“The European Council urgently calls on Turkey to cease these actions and respect the sovereign rights of Cyprus to explore and exploit its natural resources in accordance with EU and International Law,” the draft read.Meanwhile, the EU also called on Akara to release the two Greek soldiers who have been in custody for over three weeks. They expressing “grave concern” about the continued detention of EU citizens in Turkey and called for the “swift and positive resolution of these issues in a dialogue with member-states” in line with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ encouragement on keeping an open dialogue with Ankara.They may just get their chance to do so on Monday, with a meeting scheduled between EU leaders and Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Varna, Bulgaria.last_img read more

Mega Millions jackpot reaches 1 billion as drawing nears

first_img DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The Mega Millions jackpot has soared to $1 billion, as the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. lottery history gets even bigger.Lottery officials increased the grand prize just hours ahead of the Friday night drawing. The prize climbed from $970 million.Although the jackpot keeps increasing , the odds of winning remain stuck at a miserable one in 302.5 million.The prize has grown so large because no one has hit the jackpot since July 24, when a group in California won $543 million.The $1 billion prize refers to the annuity option. Most winners opt for cash, which for Friday night’s drawing would be $565 million.Officials say that if there isn’t a winner, the prize for Tuesday night’s drawing would be $1.6 billion, tying the largest U.S. lottery prize.

Clark County approves integrity resolution

first_imgMerriam-Webster defines integrity. The Oxford English Dictionary defines integrity. And now the Clark County commissioners define “integrity” in one part of a 13-page, nonbinding resolution that commissioners have finally passed by a 2-1 vote after more than a month of acrimony.For two hours Tuesday afternoon, commissioners debated the specifics of a document that was originally intended as a board-level apology for a vote undertaken by a different board that the commissioners sit on, but do not control.Republican Commissioner David Madore originally introduced his “integrity resolution” as a way to declare that the C-Tran board broke faith with the community when it approved a potential light-rail funding plan in September.“Honesty, soundness, trustworthiness to fulfill commitments, truth-loving, worthy of belief or reliance, trustable, believable, forthrightness, good for one’s word, a reliable witness to the truth, worthy of reliance or trust.”In its final form, the resolution mostly laments the Columbia River Crossing project and states the county will tell several government agencies of its concerns.last_img read more

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Navy’s plan to add 36 EA-18G Growlers at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in northwest Washington would trigger a four-field increase in field carrier practice landings at Outlying Landing Field Coupeville under the service’s preferred option for expanding its fleet of electronic warfare aircraft. The move faces strong opposition, however, from some residents on Whidbey Island over noise and the strain on local resources resulting from an influx of personnel, reports the Seattle Times.

Payra power plant buzzing with activity

first_img-Around 6000 professionals have been working round the clock to complete construction work on the 1,320MW coal-fired Payra power plant at Dhankhali in Patuakhali’s Kalapara upazila.Being built by Bangladesh-China Power Company Ltd (BCPCL), the plant, if completed, would be country’s largest coal-fired power plant.The BCPCL is a 50:50 joint venture between Bangladesh’s North-West Power Generation Company Limited (NWPGCL) and China National Machinery Import and Export Corporation (CMC).During a visit to the project on Friday, around 1,500 Chinese and some 4,500 local workers were seen busy working on the completion of the project on time.Around 35 per cent of the construction work of the project, including piling for infrastructure building, constructing an iron frame for first unit’s boiler, project roads, and more is already complete, said BCPCL officials.They expected they would be able to bring in the required machineries for the plant in the first half of 2018.The estimated cost of the project is $1.6 billion, 80 per cent of which is expected to come as a loan from China’s Exim Bank. The rest would be invested by NWPGCL and CMC.The EPC contractor, which won the contract, is a consortium of First Northeast Electric Power Engineering Company (NEPC) of China and China National Energy Engineering and Construction Company Ltd (CECC).NWPGCL managing director AM Khurshedul Alam told Prothom Alo that there would be two 660MW units in the project.The first unit of the power plant is expected to supply electricity by April 2019 and the second unit will start generation in October, he added.The NWPGCL has been allotted land of 1000 acres near Payra port. Besides the 1,320MW plant, a 3,600MW LNG-based power plant, a 100MW solar plant, and a 50MW wind turbine plant will be set up here in the 100-acre land.State minister for power, energy and mineral resources Nasrul Hamid visited the Payra project on Friday.He said that the power plant project at Payra will produce a total of 900 megawatts of electricity and for this $12 billion would be invested.*The article, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Imam Hossain.last_img read more

A leading Indian airline is reportedly taking a new approach to securing highly coveted landing spots at west London hub Heathrow.Jet Airways has been alerted to the holding of 11 per cent of Heathrow landing slots by British Midland (BMI) and is reportedly seeking a takeover of the airline in order to cement its London footing.Jet Airways, the largest domestic airline in India, was claimed by the Sunday Telegraph to have approached BMI chairman Sir Michale Bishop with a view to buying out his 51 per cent stake in the firm.An aviation consultant told the Times of India: “Sir Michael Bishop owns 51 per cent stake in UK carrier British Midland (BMI). BMI has control over 11 per cent slots in Heathrow and Jet Airways has approached Sir Bishop for controlling stakes in the carrier. In some ways, it’s a repetition of the Air Sahara buyout. We are looking at gaining slots in major airports during peak hours by buying stakes in airlines that are rich in this aspect.”Competition for a BMI buyout could be high, with Heathrow transatlantic flyers BA and Virgin Atlantic already voicing an interest, alongside Lufthansa – already nearly a 30 per cent stake-holder in the firm.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more

EU sends clear message to Ankara

first_imgPolitical party reaction to the Varna summit was mixed on Tuesday with the two main parties, ruling Disy and opposition Akel, welcoming the statements on Cyprus by EU leaders.Disy said the EU had shown solidarity with Cyprus over Turkey’s violation of its exclusive economic zone (EEZ).“The European Union has sent a clear message to Ankara that there can be no progress in EU-Turkish relations without respect for the sovereign rights of the Republic of Cyprus,” the party said.It added that only while the EU-Turkish relations are active could Turkey be convinced to compromise on the Cyprus issue, “and this is the only way to control Turkey’s attitude towards Cyprus in general”.Akel said it was clear from the statements made by the EU leaders that the Varna meeting had not made substantial progress.“This, of course, was not surprising given the negative circumstances and the problems caused by Turkey’s provocative behaviour on various issues and towards EU member states such as Cyprus and Greece,” party spokesman Stefanos Stefanou said.The EU, he added, would however have to be consistent in its pressure on Ankara.“We welcome the resumption of the EU’s support to the Republic of Cyprus for the right to explore and exploit its natural resources at the same time as it expresses concerns about the Turkish actions in the Eastern Mediterranean,” he added.“If the Turkish side positively responds, we will have developments, if not, it will at least be exposed.”Leader of the Citizens’ Alliance, Giorgos Lillikas said Varna had not delivered any positive result because of Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan’s inflammatory statements before the conference.“It was clear there was no political will on the part of Turkey to abandon its aggression towards Cyprus,” he said.“I consider it very important that after the Varna summit, the Cypriot government, in cooperation with other European countries, will insist and succeed as a mechanism for monitoring Turkish policy is developed,” he added. Lillikas said the statement made by the EU leaders were in the right direction.Greens leader Giorgos Perdikis however said EU leaders had yet again demonstrated their hypocrisy.Turkey massacred the Kurds and threatened Cyprus and Greece, and still the EU had opened the path to restart Ankara’s accession course “and the provision of billions of euros of assistance to a dictatorial regime”.Socialist Edek said the EU, beyond verbal statements and conclusions, was unable to engage in any effective intervention to end Turkish provocations, while the Solidarity Movement said it was obvious that Turkey was raising the stakes and the ultimate goal was to stop Cyprus from pursuing its energy plans.You May LikeFIXDCan This Keep Shady Mechanics Honest?FIXDUndoFinance DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get Up To $250,000 If They Do This…Finance DailyUndoUniversityBuzzo9 Best Colleges You Can Attend For FreeUniversityBuzzoUndo Clear winner in first round of Kition bishop voteUndoMorphou bishop now claims gay men have a ‘nasty smell’UndoHeroes’ welcome for Israeli teens after woman detained for false rape claim (Update 2)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
