In April, the world-famous New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival will return to the Fair Grounds Race Course in celebration of the longstanding event’s 50th anniversary. Musician, bandleader, promoter, film producer, and modern-day musical Renaissance man Mitch Stein fell in love with Jazz Fest more than 25 years ago, and has been involved with the event’s annual festivities in some capacity ever since. This year, Stein will bring a plethora of hard-hitting late-night shows to Café Istanbul, including the 5th Annual all-star celebration of the Grateful Dead dubbed AXIAL TILT.As New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival approaches, Live For Live Music‘s Sam Berenson had a chat with Mitch Stein to discuss his love for New Orleans and its musical culture, the upcoming shows he’s promoting surrounding Jazz Fest, his love for the Grateful Dead and more.Sam Berenson: What initially inspired your interest in New Orleans’ music scene?Mitch Stein: I became familiar with New Orleans music at a relatively young age. My dad was a professional singer, and used to play big band and Dixieland/New Orleans records in the house on a very regular basis. I had already become a big fan of The Radiators by the late 1980’s, and my interest in them guided me towards my first trip to New Orleans. I first attended Jazz Fest more than 25 years ago, and it was on that first visit that Charles Neville (who I had booked years earlier with the Neville Brothers at a show in New York, when I was in college) invited me to sit in with him at Storyville.From that moment, I decided to attend every Jazz Fest I could, and with eternal thanks to Charles, I began my now decades-long immersive study of all things New Orleans. This also subsequently led to the formation of GATORATORS in 2012 with Dave Malone, Camile Baudoin, and Reggie Scanlan from The Radiators, plus drummer Eric Bolivar, with whom I had played music before he moved to NOLA from the Bay Area. The band has been playing together ever since.SB: What effect has being a musician and playing music had on your professional career in the industry?MS: I’ve been playing piano since I was 4 years old. I studied classical piano for 10 years, then switched to formal jazz training, including studying and performing at the Berklee College Of Music. In addition to my own projects, I have for years been a “hired gun” for other folks’ jazz, rock, blues, and funk projects, and my decades-long experience of being both a player and bandleader (and film producer) has provided me with the tools necessary to not only communicate and perform with other professional musicians and production professionals, but has paved the way for my now ongoing role as Exclusive Booker and Producer of the night-time Jazz Fest shows at Café Istanbul.SB: Is there anything you’re looking particularly forward to this year during Jazz Fest?MS: While I am extremely happy with this year’s calendar of phenomenal shows at Café Istanbul featuring New Orleans musicians nearly every night, I am admittedly very excited to host The Brecker Brothers Band on May 5th. The Breckers provided the soundtrack for a large segment of my musically formative years, and it’s pretty cool to have things now come full circle, resulting in the upcoming show. The level of musicianship in that band is way off the charts, and while every show on the calendar is worth catching, this show will definitely be a “you-should-have-been-there” experience.SB: What’s the history behind your relationship with Café Istanbul?MS: I first reached out to the owner of Café Istanbul prior to Jazz Fest 2015 to pitch him on an all-star, 2-night celebration of the Grateful Dead called AXIAL TILT (timed with the Dead’s 50th Anniversary). He explained that he was already booked on my requested dates, and we said our goodbyes. A few minutes later, he called to say that he had been contemplating my proposal and was going to go with his gut, allow me the chance to produce the shows, and shift the folks already confirmed to another date.Those shows went so well that he asked if I would be interested in being the exclusive booker for all shows at Café Istanbul during Jazz Fest, and I jumped at the chance. This will be my fifth year booking shows there, and I am extremely appreciative to have been given this opportunity. I am even happier that in addition to thoroughly enjoying the high-level music performed at the shows they attend, folks who pack the place every night really love the overall experience the venue and its staff provides.SB: You’re clearly a big fan of the Grateful Dead. How did you your relationship with the band/music begin?MS: As mentioned before, I had been studying classical piano for 10 years, and was then immersed in formal jazz training when a friend of mine called to tell me that he had an extra ticket for a rock concert and asked if I wanted to join him. I hadn’t yet heard of the Grateful Dead, and assumed by their name that they were some type of hard rock band. When I went to my first Dead show, I quickly discovered to my now lifelong delight that this wasn’t a rock band per se, but a jazz band performing in the rock idiom. The level of musicianship and onstage communication between the band members was stunning, and I was hooked from the first show.I bought a ticket for the following night’s show and was again delighted to discover that not a single song was repeated from the night before. I could spend a LONG time talking about the myriad ways that the Grateful Dead and their music has positively affected my life; suffice it to say that having seen nearly 400 Grateful Dead concerts (plus another 300 or so solo Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and other band members’ solo and collaborative projects), the Dead’s music—and its direct relationship to the world of Jazz—is very much a part of my DNA. I have now officially performed music with every living member of the Grateful Dead, and I feel very fortunate that living and working in the San Francisco area offers me regular opportunities to celebrate them and their music.As a New Orleans side note for those unaware, the Neville Brothers opened for the Grateful Dead at eight of their shows, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Michael Doucet & BeauSoleil each opened once, and Branford Marsalis joined them on several occasions. Other notable jazz-oriented live Grateful Dead show collaborators include Billy Cobham, Charles Lloyd, David Murray, Etta James, Flora Purim, Ken Nordine, and Ornette Coleman.SB: Tell me a little bit about the formation of your “AXIAL TILT” event.MS: As I mentioned earlier, AXIAL TILT began in 2015 as a 2-night celebration of the Grateful Dead’s 50th Anniversary. I assembled an incredible tribute ensemble comprised largely of members of the Dead’s extended family including Stu Allen (Phil Lesh & Friends), Rob Eaton (Dark Star Orchestra), Robin Sylvester (RatDog), Jay Lane (RatDog), original Grateful Dead member and vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux, and Charles Neville. We are now getting ready for the fifth annual AXIAL TILT (the same lineup but with Joan Osborne on vocals and Dino English from Dark Star Orchestra on drums; Charles unfortunately passed away last year), and will once again present two nice, long evenings of live Grateful Dead nuggets. Each performance will include one acoustic and two electric sets per night, with no repeat of any songs.SB: What’s your fondest memory of Leo Nocentelli?MS: I’d have to say the very first time I saw Leo with The Meters in New Orleans many years ago. I was familiar with their music, but watching the actual Godfathers Of Funk in person for the first time, and hearing Leo’s ultra-familiar guitar riffs in real time and in person, was one of the highlights of all of my years attending Jazz Fest. To now have him performing exclusively at Café Istanbul this year during Jazz Fest’s night-time shows is one long “pinch me” moment. And since I am also a member of Voyager, I’ll also get to check off a personal bucket list item when I’ll have the chance to actually jam with him on April 27!SB: I see Eric Krasno is involved with a bunch of your late-nights. Where did that friendship begin?MS: While our paths have crossed many times over the years, this will be the first time that we’ll be working together. I have been a fan of Eric’s for many years, and have actually tried to book him the past couple of years I’ve been booking the Istanbul lineup. This is the first year that the scheduling gods have paved the way for our collaboration, and I am more than excited to experience his artistry on my “home turf” in musical conversation with folks like Leo Nocentelli, Jason Crosby, Johnny Vidacovich, Renard Poché, Reggie Scanlan, Mark Brooks, Will Bernard, Wil Blades, Jason Hann, and others.SB: So you live in the Bay Area now. Do you see any similarities between your local music scene and New Orleans’?MS: I often tell people that if I didn’t live in the Bay Area, I’d likely end up in New Orleans. There are many similarities between the two scenes, with the most obvious being that both areas are overflowing with exceedingly talented musicians and appreciators of music, and both have provided the world with “signature” musical styles and sounds that continue to be celebrated not only in their respective locales, but throughout the world. I consider it a privilege to be affiliated with both areas, and will continue to do all that I can to celebrate that connection. YEAH YOU RIGHT!AXIAL TILT is set to take place once again on May 2nd and 3rd at Café Istanbul during Jazz Fest in New Orleans, LA. For more information and tickets to AXIAL TILT and all the other nighttime Jazz Fest shows at Café Istanbul, head here.
Current standards for classifying foods as “whole grain” are inconsistent and, in some cases, misleading, according to a new study by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers. The Whole Grain Stamp, one of the most widely used industry standards, actually identified grain products that were higher in both sugars and calories than products without the stamp. The researchers urge adoption of a consistent, evidence-based standard for labeling whole-grain foods to help consumers and organizations make healthy choices. This study is the first to empirically evaluate the healthfulness of whole-grain foods based on five commonly used industry and government definitions.“Given the significant prevalence of refined grains, starches, and sugars in modern diets, [having] a unified criterion to identify higher-quality carbohydrates is a key priority in public health,” said first author Rebecca Mozaffarian, project manager in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at HSPH.The study appeared in the Jan. 4 online edition of Public Health Nutrition.The health benefits of switching from refined to whole-grain foods are well established, including lower risk of cardiovascular disease, weight gain, and type 2 diabetes. Based on this evidence, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) 2010 Dietary Guidelines recommend that Americans consume at least three servings of whole-grain products daily, and the new U.S. national school lunch standards require that at least half of all grains be whole-grain rich. However, no single standard exists for defining any product as a “whole grain.”Mozaffarian and her colleagues assessed five different industry and government guidelines for whole-grain products:The Whole Grain Stamp, a packaging symbol for products containing at least 8 grams of whole grains per serving (created by the Whole Grain Council, a nongovernmental organization supported by industry dues)Any whole grain as the first-listed ingredient (recommended by the USDA’s MyPlate and the Food and Drug Administration’s Consumer Health Information guide)Any whole grain as the first ingredient without added sugars in the first three ingredients (also recommended by USDA’s MyPlate)The word “whole” before any grain anywhere in the ingredient list (recommended by USDA’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010)The “10:1 ratio,” a ratio of total carbohydrate to fiber of less than 10 to 1, which is approximately the ratio of carbohydrate to fiber in whole-wheat flour (recommended by the American Heart Association’s 2020 Goals)From two major U.S. grocers, the researchers identified a total of 545 grain products in eight categories: breads, bagels, English muffins, cereals, crackers, cereal bars, granola bars, and chips. They collected nutrition content, ingredient lists, and the presence or absence of the Whole Grain Stamp on product packages from all of these products.They found that grain products with the Whole Grain Stamp, one of the most widely used front-of-package symbols, were higher in fiber and lower in trans fats, but also contained significantly more sugar and calories compared with products without the stamp. The three USDA recommended criteria also had mixed performance for identifying healthier grain products. Overall, the American Heart Association’s standard (a ratio of total carbohydrate to fiber of equal or less than 10-to-1) proved to be the best indicator of overall healthfulness. Products meeting this ratio were higher in fiber and lower in trans fats, sugar, and sodium, without higher calories, than products that did not meet the ratio.“Our results will help inform national discussions about product labeling, school lunch programs, and guidance for consumers and organizations in their attempts to select whole-grain products,” said senior author Steven Gortmaker, professor of the practice of health sociology.Other HSPH authors included researchers Rebekka Lee and Mary Kennedy; Dariush Mozaffarian, associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology; and David Ludwig, professor in the Department of Nutrition.Support for the study was provided by the Donald and Sue Pritzker Nutrition and Fitness Initiative; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Prevention Research Centers grant, including the Nutrition and Obesity Policy, Research and Evaluation Network); the New Balance Foundation; the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases; and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health.
When incoming freshman Kevin Yang learned he was accepted to Harvard College, he quickly wrote and thanked one of the people who helped him the most — Tri Huynh. As a Harvard student, Huynh, now a teacher in California, tutored Yang once a week at Harvard’s Education Portal in Allston.Opened in 2008, Harvard’s Ed Portal serves as a cooperation agreement between Harvard and the city of Boston to bring the University’s greatest strengths of teaching and research to the Allston-Brighton community.For Yang, who moved many times during his middle and high school years, the Ed Portal was a constant. “We’ve lived all over Massachusetts, and moving so often was difficult,” Yang said. “High school was very stressful, and writing my college essay helped me reflect on my identity.”While Yang’s parents worked — his mother is a nurse and his father a scientist — Yang’s grandparents drove him back and forth from the Ed Portal several times each week. These days they drive his younger brother Neil there for his mentoring sessions.Noting his parents high regard for education, Yang said: “You’re always stepping on the backs of your parents to go further. Getting into Harvard is a new experience for all of us — it has been a roller coaster ride. At the end of the day, they are proud of me.” 1Incoming freshman, Kevin Yang, foreground, and his family, at their home. From left, Yi Jin, Kevin’s mother; grandfather, Yongshou Jin; brother, Neil Jin and grandmother, Yi Qun Zhu. His dad, Hailin Yang, not pictured, was at work. 5Neil takes Kevin’s longboard for a ride in their neighborhood. 15In Harvard Yard, Kevin checks his new Harvard ID, comparing it to the one from Boston Latin, and noting how much he has changed. 7For several years, Kevin’s grandparents drove him to and from the Ed Portal, school, and other activities. Currently, Kevin is in the driver’s seat with his learner’s permit while his grandfather instructs him from the passenger seat. 12Neil plays a computer game, while Kevin looks on. Remembering his own mentor, Kevin says, “He was more than a tutor — he was a real person, he helped me to chill. He recognized my human side … he also saw my interest in biology and helped me with my studies.” 2A shelf in the living room displays Kevin’s many awards and some family photos. 8Kevin attended Boston Latin School, the oldest school in America, founded in 1635. 4Kevin’s younger brother, Neil, looks up to him. 6Kevin’s grandfather, Yongshou Jin, speaks Shanghainese. Kevin speaks English, Latin, Chinese, Spanish, and Shanghainese. 9Five signers of the Declaration of Independence along with many other notable historic figures attended BLS. 10Kevin graduated in June. 3Kevin reads his acceptance letter to Harvard. 13On freshmen move-in day, Kevin, returning from his Freshman Orientation Program (FOP), greets Catherine Zhang ’19, on left, while his mother, Yi Jin and father Hailin, look on. Yi Jin rejoiced when she saw her son following his FOP of hiking and camping in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. 14Kevin greets his new roommate, T.J. Song (right) of Gilroy, Calif. They’ll share a room, part of a suite in Weld Hall. 11Kevin and Neil pose inside the Harvard EdPortal. When Kevin attended, the Ed Portal was across the street from its current location at 224 Western Ave. in Allston. Membership is free and hundreds of students like Yang take advantage of the Allston-Brighton mentoring program, which pairs a Harvard student with a local youth. 16Kevin hugs his mother. His father, Hailin, said he would miss work to be at move-in day partly so he could, “park the car in Harvard Yard.” The family car is to the left.
By Dialogo March 29, 2010 They lack the per capita wealth of the Americans, but the Costa Ricans are the happiest people in the Western Hemisphere, while the Haitians and the Cubans are at the opposite end of the spectrum, according to a Gallup poll released today. About 63 percent of “Ticos,” as Costa Ricans are known, are satisfied with life and optimistic about the future, while only 2 percent have difficulty surviving from day to day, according to the survey. Following the Costa Ricans at the top of the happiness list are the Canadians, the Panamanians, the Brazilians, and the Americans. Things are very different in Haiti, where only 4 percent of citizens are content with their existence and where access to food, shelter, and medicine is a problem for 35 percent. In Cuba, 25 percent of people say that they are happy, compared to 11 percent who struggle to survive every day. In the survey, Gallup asked at least one thousand people in each country how they would evaluate their wellbeing on a scale of zero to ten, using a sample designed to represent the opinion of all citizens. According to the study, happiness depends on two factors, health and wealth, Gallup’s head of Global Practice, Tom Rath, said at an event at the firm’s headquarters today. And among all of an individual’s circumstances, “nothing is as important as having a good job” for a sense of personal satisfaction, Rath indicated. Gallup conducted the survey in more than 150 countries, together encompassing 98 percent of the world’s population. The nation where citizens said that they were most content with life was Denmark, while the nation with the worst result was Zimbabwe, where, according to Gallup, sadness reigns.
November 15, 2001 Regular News Advice available for lawyer reservists Advice available for lawyer reservists The Florida Bar’s Ethics Department With the tragic events that occurred on September 11, many reservists and National Guard personnel were mobilized to assist in the fight against terrorism. Some of those called to duty were members of The Florida Bar. Because of the possibility of a greater mobilization in the near future, it is important for attorneys who may be called to active duty to be adequately prepared to handle the impact on their law practice. While most reservists have a developed contingency plan to protect their clients and law practice, we have learned that some attorneys were not prepared for an immediate mobilization. Mobilization is especially difficult for solo practitioners who do not have the advantage of another attorney working in their office to assist in the transition of cases. Attorneys who practice in a firm have the benefit of allowing another attorney within the firm to handle client matters. The American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Legal Assistance for Military Personnel has posted some guidance on the ABA’s website which may be beneficial to sole practitioners who do not have a current mobilization plan which includes their law practice. The guidance includes an article entitled “Mobilization Readiness Advice for the Solo Attorney/Reservist.” The article offers tips on selecting an attorney to assist in the winding down of a law practice. Factors such as competence, experience, professionalism, and adequate malpractice coverage are primary considerations when selecting a designated attorney. Transitional conferences with the attorney and staff regarding status of cases are also suggested for at least the most pressing matters. The designated administering attorney would need to have an understanding of office systems such as conflict checks and calenders. It is also important that designated attorneys have access to locked storage facilities as well as passwords to obtain computer information. Most importantly, the trust account should be made accessible. Failure to have an authorized signatory on your account could require a court’s order to release client funds. Client notification is also discussed in the article. Clients should be notified of the possibility of an activation order once it appears that a mobilization is likely. Information provided in the notification would include a discussion of what to expect when activation occurs and the necessity that the client file be forwarded to another attorney. Notification and communication with your malpractice carrier is also critical. The article, as well as samples of suggested documents and checklists, can be viewed in its entirety at www.abanet.org. The Florida Bar has a link to the relevant section of the ABA website on its homepage at www.FLABAR.org. It should also be noted that the Military Affairs Committee of the Florida Bar is sponsoring a pro bono referral program to assist active duty military, recalled reservists, and recalled National Guardsmen with their legal needs. Those interested in volunteering should complete an application (provided below) and return it to the Military Affairs Committee staff liaison, Jennifer Wilson. Civilian attorneys and other local bar associations in the state should refrain from soliciting or otherwise directly contacting the military to provide assistance. The Florida Bar Military Affairs Committee will coordinate all necessary assistance and provide training for the volunteers. In addition, the Law Office Management Advisory Service of the Florida Bar (LOMAS) has information and materials available for attorneys who employ reservists. LOMAS can be contacted at (850) 561-5611.
Versailles, In. — Ripley County Superior Court Judge Jeffery Sharp has sentenced a Versailles man to two-and-a-half years probation in connection with four counts of felony counterfeiting.Court documents indicate Daniel Craig, 32, purchased fake bills at a flea market and tried to color them to make look authentic. Craig then used the $100 bills at Versailles-area businesses before he was charged in the spring of 2017.On October 4 Craig reached a deal with the prosecutor to plead guilty to one charge and three other counts were dropped. He was also given credit for 54 days served.
The 7th Grade Lady Cardinal defeated the Waldron Mohawk in 2 exciting sets. 25-24, 25-24. The Cardinals came out strong with 5 strong serves from Rachel Suttmann. After that, the Cardinals had to work hard on the court to push this first set to the end. The second set started off slow until Jaelyn Owens served 6 straight points. The girls covered the court well to stay close with the Mohawks to pull out the win. Rachel Suttmann led the team with 10 points followed by Jaelyn Owens 8 points, Ashley Hunter 3 points, Cora Roth 2 points and Kalli Obermeyer 1 point. Sophia Hohenstein played the net solid with several tips. Lucy Abplanalp and Cora Roth both had a kill to lead the offense. The St. Louis 8th Grade Volleyball team topped the 8th grade Waldron Mohawks 25-18, 25-14. The Cardinals started off slow in the first set falling behind 6 points quickly. The Cards kept their composure to battle back 1 point at a time. Once they battle back to the top in the first set, the girls stayed on top even through the second set. Lilly Schebler led the team with 10 points. Kate Weber contributed 8 points, Isabelle Wonnell 6 points, Catherine Streator 5 points, Rhea Miller 3 points and Ella Moster and Claire Saner 1 point each. The back row defense by Ingrid Tuveson, Maggie Beiser and Ava Owens passed the ball well to help set up the offense. Catherine Streator commanded the net with 8 hits, Isabelle Wonnell 7 hits and Kate Weber 6 hits.Courtesy of Cardinals Coach Jennifer Meer.
By Peter HallLONDON (Reuters) – Eliud Kipchoge ran the second fastest marathon time ever to clinch his fourth London Marathon title on Sunday, ahead of Britain’s Mo Farah who struggled in fifth, while Kenya’s Brigid Kosgei impressed to win the women’s race.Kenya’s Kipchoge made it an incredible 11 marathon wins from 12 races, leading from start to finish to come home in a time of two hours, two minutes and 37 seconds — 58 seconds off his own world record set last year in Berlin.The women’s race got off to a slow start, but reigning champion Vivian Cheruiyot ran a fast 15th mile, before Chicago Marathon champion Kosgei took the lead and strode to her first London title with a time of 02:18:20.Kipchoge was expected to be challenged by Farah, but having kept up with the imperious Kenyan early on, Farah struggled in the latter stages.He finished over three minutes behind the winner, who is regarded by many as the greatest athlete of all time.“It feels strange to be considered the most successful elite man in racing, it’s really good and I’m very, very happy to have won four times,” Kipchoge said.“I know how to win this race and I was confident and didn’t feel it was in doubt at any point.”Farah’s pre-race preparations were marked by a dispute with fellow distance-running great Haile Gebrselassie.However, the multi-Olympic, world and European champion over 10,000 and 5,000 metres said the dispute did not act as a distraction ahead of his third London Marathon.“I didn’t think the fuss affected my run and I wasn’t distracted by the build up,” Farah said. “It was all about London today and so I put my head down, did my best.“I don’t regret anything I said and I respect the race.”In the women’s race, three-times winner Mary Keitany was the favourite with the field going for the women’s only record — without the aid of male pacemakers — set by Keitany in London in 2017.Keitany, however, never troubled Chicago Marathon champion Kosgei and last year’s winner Cheruiyot out in front, finishing down in fifth, 2:38 slower than Kosgei.Kosgei broke clear of Cheruiyot to win having ran the fastest second half of a marathon ever.“To smash my personal best is all I could to ask for,” Kosgei said. “I always get tempted to go with the leaders, but now I run better in the second half so I held back and that worked for me.”
When Valve introduced the new Dota Pro Circuit (DPC), the way we viewed the competitive Dota 2 scene drastically changed. Back before teams were penalized for changing their rosters, we would see teams dropping players weeks before a major tournament. The magnitude of these changes meant that teams who trained together for months were suddenly left trying to obtain a $23m (£16.2m) dollar prize pool with new teammates. The effect that these last minute changes had on teams left players scrambling to synergize. The expectations of the fans and their organizations added more weight onto their first place aspirations. The chaos of the pre-DPC shuffle emphasised the success a potential line-up would have over the developed and cohesive team they could build. It was a system rules by instant gratification over patience. These last minute drops weren’t too commonplace but they did occur.The Aegis of Champions, the ultimate aim for any Dota 2 player. Credit: ValveTake Evil Geniuses (EG) as an example. Back in January of 2015, Artour “Arteezy” Babaev and Ludwig “Zai” Wåhlberg very abruptly left EG to join Team Secret. This sudden line-up change occurred about a month before the Dota 2 Asia Championships (DAC). Luckily EG was able to fill the two spots with the recently released Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling and the pub star Syed Sumail “Suma1L Hassan. EG went on to win the DAC and succeed against the odds. This emphasis on the team meant that potential investors saw value in the team rather than the individual players. It also meant that teams could drop players at a moment’s notice without suffering any consequences. So how did the DPC change all this?An Emphasis on the PlayerThe introduction of the DPC forced teams into regulated roster changes and doesn’t allow teams to change their line-ups without a penalty. This gave a much needed protection to players who previously were seen more as pawns rather than the foundation of a good team. Suddenly players were given more value as they were the holders of the new DPC points, not the teams. The eight teams who had acquired the most points would receive a direct invite to The International 2018 (TI8) and the points would be based on the top three players who have accumulated the most points.The new DPC system places a much larger emphasis on the player which changes the dialogue for investors. Just recently we saw Fnatic drop Khoo “Ohaiyo” Chong Xin and then pick up Sahil “Universe” Arora. This change saw Fnatic jump from 11th place to 9th place, leaving them to just one place away from automatically qualifying for TI8. No longer is the emphasis on the team but rather on the player. The Wild West of Dota 2Esports is an ever growing industry with new investors waiting to see what’s a worthy investment. What’s worrying about the sudden emphasis on players instead of teams is that it turns potential investors away from the Dota 2 competitive scene. Are team organisations still a worthy investment if the emphasis is now placed on the player rather than the team? If teams can drop points as quickly as they achieved them, is the Dota 2 landscape a stable investment? It’s hard to create an argument that supports the stability of the current Dota 2 competitive scene. While it seemed that Valve was attempting to regulate the movement of players amongst teams, it really feels like Valve created more chaos than order. Valve’s regulations have now changed how players are valued and thus, changed how investors view both the player and the team. The two are now separate entities with players potentially being seen as commodities, not integral members of a squad. This year has proven that the Dota Pro Circuit isn’t flawless and still needs further development. The Dota 2 competitive scene has come a long way. What’s worrying is potentially seeing what happened with Ohaiyo happen next season at the mid point of the circuit – or even just before The International this year. Will more teams recognise their ability to shuffle their teams to accumulate points without having to play in the tournament ? Will Valve see this flaw in their system and add more provisions to ensure teams don’t capitalise on this ‘flaw’? The type of swing that Fnatic had might please their investors now but this won’t always be in favour of the organisation. Future shuffles could see bigger highs and lows – and not just in the favour of the organisation or their investors.
“We remain grateful to everyone who has helped David through this ordeal, both in the Dominican Republic and here in Boston. David’s journey to good health has been bolstered by the many expressions of love that have come to us from across the globe. Your support has lifted his spirits tremendously during this challenging time.”The #RedSox today issued the following statement on behalf of Tiffany Ortiz: pic.twitter.com/WRTQJD9KLq— Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) June 18, 2019The retired Red Sox star had been listed in “guarded” condition in recent days. He underwent surgery in the Dominican Republic following the shooting, and doctors removed his gallbladder and part of his intestines. He was then transported to Boston. David Ortiz’s condition has been upgraded to “good,” his wife Tiffany reported Wednesday, nine days after he was shot in his native Dominican Republic.“This morning, David’s condition was upgraded to ‘good’ by his doctors and he continues to make progress with his recovery in the intensive care unit at Massachusetts General Hospital,” Tiffany Ortiz said in a statement released by the Red Sox.

Week 13 in the NFL opens with three games on Thanksgiving, starting not long after noon ET. Although Thanksgiving matchups tend to lean toward home teams, two of the three road teams are favored in 2019.With Detroit’s Ford Field and Dallas’ AT&T Stadium in the traditional mix, there will be no November weather issues per usual in the first two contests. This year, the same goes for the night cap, with Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium doing the hosting. Favorites usually fare well straight up and against the spread on Thanksgiving. Do we see the trend continue for Bears vs. Lions, Bills vs. Cowboys and Saints vs. Falcons on Thursday?Here are our latest NFL picks and predictions, a Thanksgiving special edition.FULL WEEK 13 NFL PICKS:Against the spread | Straight-up predictionsNFL Thanksgiving picks, predictions against spreadChicago Bears (-5.5) at Detroit Lions12:30 p.m. ET, FoxThe Bears are somehow 5-6 despite inconsistent and often mistake-plagued play from Mitchell Trubisky, but in better matchups, he tends to deliver timely big plays. Just three weeks ago, he rallied Chicago past Detroit at home and now gets a second shot at this reeling defense. Look for Trubisky to start faster in the rematch by spreading the ball around, namely to Allen Robinson downfield and Tarik Cohen on checkdowns. Given the renewed strength of Chicago’s defense, he doesn’t need to do too much to out-duel another backup QB again, this time David Blough Bears coach Matt Nagy needs to have his team continue to beat teams it should beat in order to finish a disappointing season strong. Lions coach Matt Patricia should be off the hot seat given the rash of key injuries his team has suffered, namely to Matthew Stafford. Even with their chances of an NFC North repeat faded, the Bears will be better at playing for pride than the Lions given their significant defensive advantage.Pick: Bears win 24-17 and cover the spread.Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys (-6.5)4:30 p.m. ET, CBSThe Cowboys need this game at home to prove they can beat teams with winning records, as Jerry Jones now has a more watchful eye on Jason Garrett. The Bills have a brutal four-game stretch ahead that could derail a 8-3 season from AFC wild-card contention. Desperation will kick in for Dallas, which will be able to run better with Ezekiel Elliott and get it downfield better with Dak Prescott than Buffalo will do with Devin Singletary and Josh Allen. This game will be a grind on both sides as big plays are contained and good red zone defense leads to more field goals than TDs.The Bills have yet to face an offense at the level of the Cowboys, and they have had issues stopping the run. That’s bad news for Buffalo against Elliott, who can also set up Prescott for favorable play-action passing opportunities. Allen will do his best to keep his team in the game both passing and running with former Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley helping him in a “revenge game,” but Prescott has more firepower around him. Look for the Cowboys to come through big-time for Garrett on both sides of the ball.Pick: Cowboys 26, Bills 16New Orleans Saints (-6.5) at Atlanta Falcons8:20 p.m. ET, NBC The Saints had a narrow escape against the Panthers at home on the heels of being routed by the Falcons at home and rolling past the Bucs on the road. The Falcons went from suddenly whipping the Saints and Panthers on the road to falling hard to the Buccaneers at home. That makes this yet another hard-to-predict NFC South matchup. We’ll see about the injuries to Julio Jones and Marshon Lalttimore in what could be a marquee wide receiver-cornerback matchup, but the biggest issue here will be the Saints having a strong running game vs. the Falcons not having much of one, even with Devonta Freeman. Drew Brees will feel much less pressure than Matt Ryan will in the rematch with plenty of help from Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray.The Falcons that beat the Saints 26-9 fielded an overachieving and inspired defense after their bye. The Buccaneers did a good job to adjust and find the big plays downfield and also run effectively to take pressure of Jameis Winston. The Falcons used to have a real home-field advantage, but that has been absent this season against better teams. The Saints will spoil the holiday night for their division rivals and clinch another NFC South title in style.Pick: Saints win 27-20 and cover the spread.
Listen to “The Midday Report” from Monday August 5th
UNDATED (AP) — The NCAA will permit spring-sport Division I athletes who had their seasons shortened by the coronavirus outbreak to have an additional year of eligibility. The NCAA Division I Council voted to give college athletes who compete in spring sports such as baseball, softball and lacrosse a way to get back the season they lost, but did not guarantee financial aid. Winter sports were not included in that decision. The council declined to extend eligibility for student-athletes in sports where all or most of their regular seasons were completed. IOWA CITY — Iowa baseball coach Rick Heller is not sure how many of his 10 seniors will take advantage of an added year of eligibility. The NCAA Division One Council approved an added year for spring athletes who had their seasons cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.Heller says the Major League Draft could have an impact on which of the seniors return.Under the plan returning seniors will not count against scholarship or roster limits. TONIGHT:AM-1300 KGLO — 1991 World Series, Game 3 — Minnesota Twins vs. Atlanta Braves — 7:00 IOWA CITY — Iowa wrestling coach Tom Brands says his program is focused on the future. The top ranked Hawkeyes won the Big Ten Tournament but had their chance of winning a national title taken away when the NCAA Championships were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.And with nearly the entire lineup back it is a bright future.Brands says the focus right now needs to be staying healthy and finishing the semester.Brands says it does no good to look back at what might have been.Brands back on Friday was named the 2020 InterMat Coach of the Year, getting eight of the ten first-place votes from the staff of the amateur wrestling website.
Brazil coach Carlos Amadeu said that it won’t be easy for the South American giants to break their 14-year-old trophy drought with “too many title contenders” in fray.“All the European teams are very strong, including Spain and England, while Mexico, United States and the South American sides will pose a threat,” Amadeu told reporters in Mumbai.“It’s always difficult to face an African side in this age group,” the 52-year-old added.Brazil have been dealt a severe blow after star striker Vinicius Junior, who has drawn comparisons with Paris-Saint Germain’s Neymar, was denied release by his club Flamengo.India, hosting their biggest football event yet, will also be keen to mark their debut with a strong showing. They are in Group A with USA, Columbia and Ghana.But India’s manager Luis Norton de Matos, a former Portugal forward, did not mince his words when he said that India have just a five percent chance of winning a game.The 23-day event culminates on October 28 with the final in Kolkata, the eastern city known as the hotbed of football in cricket-obsessed India. New Delhi, India | AFP | The Under-17 World Cup starting in India on Friday should feature only players born this century, but officials are taking no chances after defending champions Nigeria were caught in a major age-cheating scandal.All players at the competition, which has helped launch the careers of Neymar, Ronaldinho, Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez, will have their wrists scanned by MRI to check they weren’t born before January 1, 2000.The measure was confirmed after Nigeria, who have won the tournament a record five times, bombed out of qualifying after they lost 26 squad members who were found to be over-age ahead of a key clash in August.Age fraud is also rampant in other countries, according to football officials, prompting FIFA to bring Magnetic Resonance Imaging equipment to the 17th edition of the tournament, which is taking part in six Indian cities.MRI scans can determine whether a player is below 17 with 99 percent accuracy, experts say, as they can show whether he or she has stopped growing — which usually happens after 17.“While it is the responsibility of each member association to ensure that their players meet the age requirements, FIFA has decided to conduct magnetic resonance imaging of the wrist at its U-17 competitions,” said a FIFA spokesperson.Play gets underway on Friday in New Delhi, where two-time champions Ghana play Colombia at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, while New Zealand clash with Turkey in Mumbai.With the absence of Nigeria, and with three-time winners Brazil weakened, the tournament is regarded as open and unpredictable.

The Martin County Sheriffs Office is reporting that they have arrested a 55-year old man after he reportedly pointed a laser that was attached to an AR-15 at a police helicopter.The incident occurred around 9:50 pm on January 18th as officials were assisting the Port St. Lucie police department with a burglary investigation.When the Port St. Lucie police department responded to the home, Norman Flaxman admitted that he pointed the laser at the MCSO Air-1 helicopter because he “wanted to test it.” Authorities also reported that Flaxman may have posted the footage on social media.He is now facing felony charges of pointing a laser at a pilot or driver.
Boynton Beach police say a man called them after he allegedly stabbed the person he attempted to rob.Police received a phone call from West Palm Beach resident Victor Morel on Saturday night, claiming that he had been shot at two times around the area of SE 23rd Avenue and South Seacrest Boulevard. Morel also told them that he had stabbed a person at 2039 South Seacrest Boulevard, and refused to meet with law enforcement.Officers responding to 2039 South Seacrest Boulevard found two spent shell casings in the parking lot. They also discovered an empty holster, loose amphetamine pills and a blood trail close to the front door of an apartment at that address.The victim was taken to Bethesda Memorial Hospital with a stab wound to his upper back and an abrasion to the right side of his head. He was later transported to the Delray Medical Trauma Center for a collapsed lung.When Morel eventually agreed to meet with police, he told them that he met the victim on a social media app called “Grindr.”He added that he had heard the victim was a drug dealer, and his intentions when meeting the victim were to “make some money off of him.”Morel also admitted that they met at the victim’s argument and got into an argument there.According to police, Morel admitted striking the victim in the head with a closed fist, causing the victim to fall to the ground.The arrest report adds that Morel then grabbed a briefcase filled with methamphetamine and struck the victim again before running out the front door.Morel stabbed the victim, who had managed to get a hold of a firearm.The other man fired two shots as Morel drove away, hitting the front windshield and driver’s side window.Police contacted the victim at the hospital, who told them that Morel had attempted to rob him of his wallet, but he put up a fight.The victim added that Morel stabbed him in the back, forcing him to pull out his firearm and shoot.Morel is charged with Robbery and Aggravated Battery.He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail, and there is no word on any charges against the victim.

Anthony ‘baba’ Nunes’ three year-old colt, BIGDADDYKOOL, announced his arrival on the big stage earlier this year when he captured the Lotto Classics for the Governor’s Cup in May. A month later the young horse was second in the Jamaican derby after an exciting battle to the wire with FUTURE KING for Jamaica’s most prized race, although both horses ended being disqualified.However, despite taking on some of the best thoroughbreds on the local circuit, in the Lotto Classics, such as ORPHEUS and JAMAI RAJA, and horses like FUTURE KING in the derby, the three year-old colt will face his toughest test to date when he lines up for the Superstakes, against defending champion FRANFIELD, reigning horse of the year SEEKING MY DREAM, PERFECT NEIGHBOUR, PHINEAS, A THOUSAND STARS, JAMAI RAJA among others, this weekend at Caymanas Park.But veteran trainer, Nunes, is confident the young horse has what it takes to win the $1 million purse on Saturday.”It is the first time he (BIGDADDYKOOL) is going to run against the top A class older horses like SEEKING MY DREAM and PERFECT NEIGHBOUR so it’s left to be seen if he can manage them. But I am pretty confident in him he’s a really nice colt and he certainly stays the trip and he has mature extremely nicely since the St Leger and we have high hopes for him,” Nunes told the Gleaner.’Baba’s biggest concern is that his main contender has not raced in over two months, and he thinks this could have an effect on the outcome, but nevertheless he remains very optimistic of his chances.”But he has trained nicely and I think he can overcome it (A class, older horses). In my mind you are always going to have question marks until the race runs. But ideally I would love to have get a race four weeks before but it didn’t happen and that is how it is in horse racing sometimes, things don’t work out the way you plan. But as far as me preparing him for this race with that in mind I have no complaints,” he told the Gleaner.Nunes has won the event on three occasions and would love a fourth, he also wants to give Trinidadian owner Stephen Narinesingh his first Superstakes win.
Over a month after dredge “Draga” sank at Pieremap Falls, Mazaruni River, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), efforts are now moving apace to salvage the wreckage.The vessel bearing registration number SD 3398 and owned by Crown Mining is expected to be removed from its present position in a matter of days.The operation is being untaken by the Natural Resources Ministry and several agencies including Crown Mining, to have the wreckage removed from the Mazaruni River since it is dangerously positioned.According to a statement issued by the Natural Resources Ministry, a crew of workers has built a specialised pontoon which will be used to bring to the surface the partly sunken dredge. The pontoon has three hydraulic winches and is 28 feet wide, 68 feet long and four feet deep. It has 18 compartments.“The plan is to fill the pontoon with water and then secure it to the sunken barge. The water will then be pumped out of the pontoon, which will cause it to rise up, taking the Draga with it. The pontoon when empty will have a lifting capacity of 180 tonnes,” the release stated.However, while the crew is at the site attempting to execute the plan, several challenges are now being encountered.The officials explained that the speed of the water at the top of the Pieremap Falls, coupled with a prolonged rainy season, is making the job even more difficult since the works entail underwater cutting.The works will soon be executed as the water levels drop, making the operation less dangerous. “The Ministry of Natural Resources will continue to monitor the situation in collaboration with the Maritime Administration Department,” the release added.
“We must change the perception that persons have about the capability of public health nurses. You must be the agents of change for the benefit of all … patients must leave satisfied.”UG Vice Chancellor, Professor Ivelaw GriffithThis was the charge delivered by Advisor to the Public Health Minister, John Adams to the 27 nurses graduating from the University of Guyana’s Bachelor of Science Nursing Programme. Adams was speaking at the annual award ceremony hosted at the Pegasus Hotel on Sunday evening.He told the nurses that as agents of change, they must educate others in order to make a difference within the public health sector. This, he noted, will involve a willingness on their part to continue to build their own capacity as they strive for excellence as health-care professionals.“That step will not only benefit you, but boost the Ministry of Public Health and the country, as a whole … It will bring you on par with your colleagues in the Caribbean since qualifying yourself in the various health fields will certainly aid Guyana in achieving Goal 3 of SDGs [Sustainable Development Goals] – ensuring a healthy life and well-being for all. The acquisition of these skills will surely benefit you and the country, once it is utilised properly,” he is quoted as saying by the DPI.Chief Nursing Officer at the Ministry, Linda Johnson, said the award ceremony speaks volumes for those who have graduated.“It is indeed an undeniable fact that the progress of any health-care system is through the development of nurses via higher education. Globally, nurses are the centre of almost every health-care team and they make an enormous contribution to the health of any nation … as graduates that emerge with a degree in nursing, your experience and added knowledge are valued assets,” Johnson said.The Chief Nursing Officer also charged the nurses to map out and develop new approaches to nursing care, health promotion and disease prevention. She advised them to secure leadership role opportunities within the sector in order to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have learnt.In his remarks, UG Vice Chancellor, Professor Ivelaw Griffith encouraged the nurses to embrace the values of respect, integrity and excellence and to be exemplars of all three attributes.
The blaze was ignited by flames that spread from a stolen car that was set ablaze, said Miller. “It was intentionally set, so that makes it arson,” he said. The car was a 2004 white Honda Civic that had been stolen from Riverside County, said John Nicoletti, spokesman for city of Anaheim. He said investigators had been in Riverside County all Monday working leads and were also reviewing security tape from Highway 241 to try to identify who ditched the car. “We’re looking for anybody who was traveling along the 241 toll road early Sunday that may have any information about seeing people around a vehicle such as that,” Nicoletti said. A red-flag alert for fire danger had been issued going into the weekend, and the forecast of winds, extremely low humidity and heat proved true as Southern California stayed on pace to have the driest winter in decades. ANAHEIM – A fierce blaze that whipped through brush lands among neighborhoods of multimillion-dollar homes during the weekend likely foreshadows an intense wildfire season as Southern California emerges from an abnormally dry winter, firefighters and forecasters said Monday. “With the current conditions we’re seeing, if we do have fires, we’re looking at real extreme fire behavior,” said Capt. Steve Miller of the Orange County Fire Authority. Even as firefighters predicted full containment of the 2,036-acre Anaheim Hills fire by 6 a.m. today, crews Monday had to jump on new blazes – 5 acres in Camarillo and about 10 acres in Los Angeles’ rugged Griffith Park. A 1,005-acre blaze that began Sunday in rural Riverside County was expected to be surrounded Monday evening. The Anaheim Hills blaze broke out Sunday and forced hundreds of people to temporarily leave their homes as hot, dry Santa Ana winds spread it over an area equal to about three square miles. One house was damaged and two outbuildings were destroyed. Another home initially reported as damaged was not harmed, Miller said. The last time it was this dry was in the 1923-24 season when 2.5 inches of rain was recorded through March 22, 1924. Only about 2.4 inches of rain have fallen in downtown Los Angeles since the July 1 start of the rain year, and forecasters said it was unlikely there would be any rain in March. Normal annual rainfall in Los Angeles is 11.43 inches. Santa Ana, Orange County’s seat, received only 1.81 inches of rain between July 1 and March 11 – about one-fifth of normal. At least four Orange County cities hit record highs Sunday, including Fullerton with 97. At 92 degrees, Los Angeles was one degree shy of breaking a record set in 1916. Temperatures to the east in Riverside County reached 104 degrees Sunday, a fire spokeswoman said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

If the brain evolved, wouldn’t anything the mind does be determined by forces beyond one’s control?Choose to disbelieve in determinism: “Humans are wired for prejudice but that doesn’t have to be the end of the story,” Caitlin Millett writes in The Conversation. A neuroscientist doctoral candidate at Penn State, Millett begins by telling her readers that their brains evolved:Humans are highly social creatures. Our brains have evolved to allow us to survive and thrive in complex social environments. Accordingly, the behaviors and emotions that help us navigate our social sphere are entrenched in networks of neurons within our brains.Yet at the end of her article, she preaches that we need to overcome our evolution by the power of free will:In today’s world people are more connected than ever – from social media to Skype, to the never-ending news cycle – people are exposed to increasing diversity. Due to these advances, we as a global community are also faced with the knowledge that prejudice-based discrimination and violence still exist. It’s become a human imperative to transcend divisive impulses which no longer serve our survival. Neuroscience has started to educate us about innate human drives. It’s now up to all of us how to use this information.This implies that we have an imperative (a command) to fight our evolution, and choose how to use the information that evolutionary neuroscience has revealed. Does it make sense to fight one’s own evolution? How does a being under the power of natural selection transcend one’s impulses?Fight your bias: Conservatives might be glad to finally find one admission that bias applies to both sides of the political aisle, but Science Daily assumes everyone is capable of recognizing their bias and overcoming it. “Demonizing whole groups of people, saying that they are inherently incapable of understanding science, is not only false, it is not an effective communication strategy,” R. Kelly Garrett, a communications professor at Ohio State, said. “Everyone can be biased. Calling people names is not a solution.” This indicates how differently professors in the humanities and the sciences can view the mind, responsibility, and free will.Convince, don’t fight: Along the same lines, Bliuc and McGarty in The Conversation advise global-warming believers (like themselves) not to bash global-warming skeptics. Their headline, “Overcoming the social barriers to climate consensus,” reveals that they support the human-caused global warming position. Yet the authors preach peace. “It can be tempting to think that people who disagree with you are mad, bad or simply stupid,” they say. “However, not only are such judgements usually wrong, but telling people that they are stupid is unlikely to convince them of the merit of your own view.” Their emphasis on social solutions to the political divide presupposes free will.The downside of political coercion: The bitter fruit of treating a populace like robots to be manipulated can be seen in China’s backtracking on their decades-long “one-child policy.” Seeing that they have created a gender imbalance that threatens social unrest and other unintended consequences, they are now attempting to fix it by mandating a “two-child policy.” But it’s generating more unrest, Medical Xpress reports. A whole generation has grown up looking down on parents with more than one child, and seeing them severely punished; can they switch gears so easily? Outsiders are warning the leaders that a two-child policy cannot be forced on Chinese parents. In an op-ed for a leading Communist Party newspaper, Liu Zhun advised, “It is better to carry forward the new policy through encouragement and incentives, which will be more easily accepted by the people.”That last story is tragic, but it illustrates the stark contrast between an evolution-based communist society and a creation-based free society. Communists built their system on Darwinian biology. Accordingly, they treated their people as animals to be manipulated. The document that launched America’s free society rests its propositions on the self-evident truth that we are endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights. Rights imply responsibilities, and responsibilities imply free will. A government that mandates a “one-child policy” runs roughshod over the rights of their people; is anyone surprised when “unintended consequences” follow?John Stossel’s weekly TV program this week focuses on the differences between communism and capitalism. Stossel, a libertarian who believes in evolution, nevertheless argues for freedom on pragmatic grounds; freedom is good because it works. Government coercion brings waste, low quality and suffering. This shows that he really doesn’t believe in evolution; else why create a show trying to convince people to think and use reason?All of these articles presuppose free will. If they didn’t why would a neuroscientist choose to write about the brain and tell readers how they should overcome prejudice? Why would supporters of a political persuasion choose to write about how to convince (not coerce or manipulate) others of the correctness of their views? Why should a communist write an op-ed to encourage leaders to switch from mandates to incentives?These articles show that determinism is self-refuting. We all know our own consciousness. We all know the influences that tempt us, but understand that we have the freedom to choose against temptation and do the right thing.(Visited 19 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jeremy Kappell, Ohio Ag Net MeteorologistIt’s shaping up to be a very nice Tuesday across the Buckeye State with abundant sunshine returning and relatively mild temps temps in the low to middle 60’s for most areas, a little cooler for areas downwind of Lake Erie. The blue sky will be accompanied by a gusty northwest breeze on the order of 15 to 25 mph.We’ll start off Wednesday with seasonably cool lows down into the 30’s for most with more sunshine to start the day before clouds increase. There will be a sizeable temperature gradient across the state with highs only in the low 40’s on the Erie Lake Shore, however, most will enjoy 60’s. Winds will be on the order of 5 to 10 mph out of the east and northeast.Meanwhile a strong late season storm system looks to develop across the Plains by late Wednesday and Wednesday night. Ahead of this system, warming winds will arrive across the Buckeye State on Thursday with high temps warming through the 70’s in most areas despite considerable cloud cover. The exception will be far northern Ohio which will be stuck on the wrong side of a stationary front allowing for much cooler conditions for Toledo and norwest sections of the state.A large area of rain with embedded rumbles of thunder will approach the state from the west by Friday morning. This activity will work it’s way across the state and generally weaken to showers as it progresses to the east. Rainfall on the order of a quarter to half inch appear likely at this time. Expect seasonable highs in the 60’s for most of the state.Temps will cool behind a cold front as we slide into the weekend on a dry note. High pressure looks to bring some quiet conditions Saturday. Data suggest another low will form across the Lower Mississippi River Valley by late Saturday driving the potential for some heavier rainfall late Saturday night and into Sunday especially for southern parts of the state.Looking further out unsettled and chilly conditions appear likely early next week giving way to a drier stretch by midweek with gradually improving temperatures. We’ll see another shot at some showers by late Wednesday/Thursday of next week.
You cannot win if you have already lost in your mind. If you have given up and accepted defeat before you have even tried, you have eliminated the possibility of winning. The certainty that you cannot win becomes a self-fulling prophecy, and it becomes your reality.You Wouldn’t Want to Meet, Would You?When you expect your dream client to reject your request for a meeting, the contact will meet your expectations. The default answer for a request for a meeting is always “no.” People are protective of their time, and the higher their level of responsibility, the more this tends to be true. The first “no” to a request for a meeting is the response everyone receives on their first request, but that isn’t the final answer when a few things are true.Trading Value: The primary challenge in acquiring a meeting is trading enough value for the time you are requesting. If what you are offering isn’t beneficial for your prospective client, they will protect their time and refuse your request. The more time you are requesting, the more value you will need to deliver. If all you have is a pitch to buy from you, what you promise is inadequate.Deserve to be in the Room: If you don’t believe you belong in the room when your dream client makes a decision, you will hear the word “no” a lot more than someone with a different belief about themselves and the value they create for their clients and prospective clients. Maintaining the idea your client knows as much or more than you is debilitating—and is rarely ever accurate. If you don’t believe that you can help your dream client get a better result than anyone else, it will be more difficult for you to acquire meetings.Willingness to Persist: If you are not willing to address your dream client’s concerns and ask again for the meeting, your unwillingness to try will result in the first “no” answer being the final answer, at least in that interaction. It is difficult to believe that the value you trade is enough to agree to a meeting if you aren’t willing to defend it. If you don’t think you deserve to be in the room when your dream client makes a decision, you aren’t going to persist.I doubt you would ever say something like, “You wouldn’t want to meet with me, would you?” Maintaining the belief that you will automatically receive a “no” to a request for a meeting produces the same outcome. You are better off believing the opposite, that everyone wants to meet with you, that you can make a difference in their results, and that need to take a meeting. If you believe this as strongly as you believe no one wants to take a meeting, you would have many more meetings.I Can’t Compete with Lower PricesWhen you expect to lose to your irrational competitor, the one with prices so low it’s difficult to understand how they’re still in business, you improve their chances of beating you. You may find what follows challenging to believe, and you may want to resist or reject it, but it is true.There are salespeople that work for your company that sell the same thing you sell, with the same higher price required of you, competing against the very same irrational competitors, who are highly successful. Your inability to compete has less to do with your company, your pricing, and your competitor. It has more to do with your sales approach. If you believe that your higher price is an obstacle to winning, you will find that to be true. You can—and must—hold a different set of beliefs.Better for Your Client: If you don’t believe that you are going to produce better outcomes for your prospective client than your lower-priced competitor, you have already lost in your mind. While it’s true they are going to peel off the small percentage of people and companies who believe the primary factor in buying anything is the lowest price, those contacts and companies aren’t for you. Your offering has a higher price as a way to create differentiated value. You have to believe you and your offering are better for your dream client.Worth Paying More: The value you create is worth paying more to obtain. If the outcomes you help your dream client achieve are better than your competitor’s, they are worth the additional investment. You lose in your mind when you believe that you and your lower-priced competitor are equal, and you have all but surrendered completely when you think the lower price makes them a better choice. Never in the history of solutions has investing less produced better outcomes. You have to believe that good enough isn’t good enough if you want your dream client to feel the same.Justify the Delta: Without believing that you are better for your clients and worth paying more for, you won’t be able to justify the delta between your price and your competitor’s lower price. You won’t argue the case that your prospective client shouldn’t make the concessions that inevitably flow from the cost-cutting necessary to operate with a lower price. If you can’t name those concessions and the implications for your client, you can’t help your dream client rationalize the decision to invest a little more for the better outcomes they need.Your Mindset Determines Your ResultIf you believe you have lost before you even try, that belief will become your reality. You are better off assuming that you are going to succeed and being optimistic enough to believe that any loss is temporary, that you are playing a longer game, and that you will do better the next time. You are also better served by the belief that when you don’t achieve the outcome you need, you are solely responsible, that it is temporary, and that you can make adjustments that will help you succeed in the future.A large part (maybe the most substantial part) of your results start first in your mind. While it’s easy to blame external forces for your challenges and failures, it does nothing to improve your results. When you change your beliefs, you free yourself to change your behaviors and actions, and you improve your outcomes. Essential Reading!

Barring stray incidents of arson, the shutdown called by the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) in Darjeeling hills on Monday passed off peacefully. Government offices remained open in Darjeeling and Kalimpong districts with a massive deployment of police and security forces. Despite the bandh call, government employees reported for duty, including in offices located in Darjeeling town. Employees arrived outside heavily guarded offices and were allowed in after showing their identification cards. The State government had issued a circular warning that absence would be treated as a break in service. While transport and tourism sectors were kept out of the purview of the strike, thousands of tourists were stranded in the hills. The State government arranged transport to help those who wanted to return to the plains in Siliguri sub-division. Meanwhile, locals allegedly having allegiance to the GJM set fire at an office of the PWD department in Darjeeling. Earlier in the day a similar attempt was made at the office of Block Development Office ( BDO) office at Bijonbari. Three persons were arrested in connection with the incident. GJM general secretary Roshan Giri denied the party’s involvement in these incidents and said they were attempts to defame it. “We could have mobilised thousands of our supporters and ensured that government offices were closed,” Mr. Giri said.“We want the Centre to intervene and take concrete steps for our demand of Gorkhaland,” he said. The GJM general secretary told The Hindu that party president Bimal Gurung had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh seeking the Centre’s intervention. The GJM has called an all-party meeting on Tuesday to discuss the issue. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said in Kolkata that she would not be intimidated by “GJM’s threats.” Addressing a public meeting, she said, “They [GJM] said they will not let me enter the hills… but I went there, held meetings and safeguarded peace.” She urged people in the hills not to be misguided by a few people.

Follow News18.com on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. New Delhi: Indian football coach Igor Stimac feels that talismanic captain Sunil Chhetri is “playing like a 29-year-old” and remains irreplaceable for the next few years.The 35-year-old Chhetri has been in prolific form in recent years but since netting India’s lone goal in the 1-2 loss to Oman in September, he has not found the target in the last three matches of the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign. Asked if he has found any player in India who can replace Chhetri in the future, Stimac said, “I don’t know why people mention about replacing Sunil, he is not going anywhere. He is fit and doing his best. He is very valuable to us. His body is like a 29-year-old.”As long as he is training like he is doing right now and giving his best for the national team, he will be with us, I can assure you that.”He (Sunil) had some great chances, there was one against Afghanistan which normally Sunil scores nine out of 10 times. It did not happen that day, but that does not mean that something has changed in his game. It happens in football,” the Croatian said on the sidelines of the launch of the 13th I-League here.Chhetri is currently the second highest international goal scorers among active players, only behind Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. He is the most-capped player and also the all-time top scorer for the Indian national team, with 72 goals in 115 appearances.Stimac said the current team also has players who can score goals and he was hopeful of them stepping up and getting the job done for India.”But at the same time. I will have chance to find out a few more players like Sunil Chhetri. I hope that once Jobby Justin starts playing games he will start scoring goals,” the head coach said.”I hope a few other players like Seiminlen Doungel from FC Goa will start playing as central forward and Manvir Singh start scoring goals. We have some options,” added Stimac.Doungel scored an injury-time goal in India’s 1-1 draw against Afghanistan in Dushanbe, Tajikistan earlier this month. The Indian team is virtually out of contention for a 2022 World Cup third round spot after losing 0-1 to Oman on Tuesday.

Comebacks are never easy especially at the age of 34 and after a hiatus of two years. Gautam Gambhir would have felt a bit jittery when he would have walked out to the middle after India won the toss and opted to bat against New Zealand at the Holkar Stadium in Indore.Gambhir looked positive right from the start when he cut one to the point boundary and then followed up with two successive sixes off Matt Henry. The left-handed batsman with a changed stance left well any deliveries outside the off and looked set for a big score. But unfortunately fell on 29, trapped lbw by Trent Boult.The Delhi batsman, who was drafted to the Test squad after injuries to KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan last played in a Test match for India in 2014 against England at the Oval. Gambhir’s solid performances in the domestic circuit, which included the recently concluded Duleep Trophy brought him back into contention.The Kolkata Knight Riders’ captain still has one more chance in the second essay and if he manages to get a decent score, he could be very well in the fray to be picked for India’s upcoming Test matches.While, at lunch on day one of the third and final Test, India were 75/2 with Cheteshwar Pujara (29*) and Virat Kohli (7*) at the crease.
After demolishing South Africa in the must-win fixture on Sunday, India skipper Virat Kohli asserted that it was their best performance of the ongoing Champions Trophy so far.Kohli’s side had to win their final Group B fixture at The Oval to avoid an embarrassing exit and they rose to the challenge with a ruthless display and defeated the Proteas by eight wickets to storm into the semi-finals of the ongoing event.”I cannot pin point any negatives from today honestly. It’s probably our most complete game yet,” said Kohli in the post-match press conference.The Proteas, who are currently the No. 1 ranked ODI side, however lived up to their ‘Perennial Chokers’ tag in a virtual quarter-final clash that turned out to be a thoroughly one-sided encounter.Chasing a lowly target of 192, the defending champions lost two wickets and crossed the line in just 38 overs.India didn’t had a great start to their chase as they lost Rohit Sharma (12) at team’s score of 23. However, skipper Virat Kohli (76*), who came in next to bat, shared a 128-run partnership with opener Shikhar Dhawan (78).The left-handed opener, who had been in tremendous form in the Champions Trophy, was once again at his menacing best as he thrashed the South Africa bowlers to all the parts of the ground.In his 83-ball knock, Dhawan smashed 12 boundaries and a six while the swashbuckling Indian skipper accumulated 7 fours and a six in his 101-ball inning.”It was a good toss to win. The wicket didn’t change much. We thought the wicket was really good to bat on. Our bowlers bowled really well and the fielders backed it up as well. I would say we had a complete performance in the field,” Kohli said in the post-match presentation ceremony.advertisementEarlier, the Men in Blue came out with a brilliant performance, both with the ball and in the field, to bowl out South Africa for a paltry 191 in 44.3 overs.Put into bat, the Proteas had a solid start as both Quinton de Kock (53) and Hashim Amla (35) put on 76 runs for the opening stand. However, once Ravichandran Ashwin—playing his first match of the ongoing Champions Trophy—got the wicket of Amla, things just started to fall apart for the AB de Villiers-led side.After the duo, only Faf du Plessis could manage to stay on the crease for a bit long and contributed valuable 36 runs.The onus was on du Plessis to then bat through the innings. However, like the Pakistan match, he dragged one back off Hardik Pandya and got bowled.From 116/1, the Proteas found themselves struggling at 157/5. JP Duminy was the only recognised batsman in the middle and he too could not stay long and help his side reach to a respectable total.Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah both picked up two wickets while Pandya, Ashwin and Jadeja all chipped in with a wicket each.”We grabbed our opportunities and that helped us restrict such a strong batting line-up to 190. Always good to get him (AB de Villiers) out early. He can really hurt you in the middle overs. It was great breakthrough for us. It was good to see the intensity from the boys,” said Kohli.Apart from the brilliant bowling performance, the Men in Blue were exceptional in the field as they pulled off three run-outs to put the brakes during the course of the South African innings.”This kind of fielding performance was required. Before going out in the middle, we had a chat in the huddle where I said I wanted to see everyone’s intensity go up and that is conscious effort which I want to see from everyone in such a big game,” said Kohli.”The bowlers were on the money. It actually helps the fielders to get into better positions and attack the batsmen when they know that the bowlers are hitting the right spot regularly,” he added.India will now face Bangladesh in the second semi-final on June 15 while Group A topper England will face the winner of the final Group B fixture between Sri Lanka and Pakistan to be played at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on Monday.

By Shelly AnandChanging the gameRohan Chhabra and Kriti Chaudhary, Co-founders, Re-Culture, Delhi, www.re-culture.com With a desire to transform the semantics of everyday objects, Rohan Chhabra and Kriti Chaudhary started Re-culture in 2014. Chhabra has a background in industrial and fashion design, while Chaudhary is a ceramicist and product designer. Interestingly this Delhi-based design collaborative came into being when the duo, who had their own independent practices, found a common ground for their interdisciplinary ideas. “As a team we believe in ideas that are generated through the design process and culture at large. In our products we aim to achieve a combination of enlightenment and enchantment by re-culturing the language of everyday things,” says Chaudhary. So, they project personalities onto inanimate objects giving them a sense of playfulness and ambiguity. NO PRIZES FOR GUESSING: Their first project Dear o’ Deer was a finalist in the ‘Unique Youngstar’ competition by German Design Council and was chosen to be exhibited at Spoga Gafa in Cologne in 2014.THE NEXT MOVE: They are currently working on a menswear line of apparel and accessories for a collection called Project AID, which stands for Animals in Danger. Illegal poaching and human population pressure are threatening the survival of many animal and plant species and their design will highlight this.By Ridhi KaleGeometry of good designAanchal Goel, 28 and Sugandh Kumar, 30, Partners, Objectry, Delhi, www.objectry.com Photo: Rajwant RawatDelhi-based studio, Objectry is more than just a play of form and materials- its geometry meets functionality meets minimalism that is rooted in a deep understanding of traditional art and crafts. The brainchild of Aanchal Goel and Sugandh Kumar, the duo started Objectry in 2015 after a stint with an export house where they worked with metal and went their separate ways (Goel experimented with pottery and Kumar opted for woodwork). “Objectry is an attempt to make products of basic utility interesting. We achieve this by exploring various Indian handicrafts and giving them a crisp and modern aesthetic,” says Goel. In the three years since they started they have successfully created products, furniture and interiors of a few retail stores and a design studio. “We have also managed to work with a few handicrafts including woodwork, black pottery, terracotta pottery and metal work,” says Kumar.

It’s a relatively new area for us and we are extremely excited about it,” says Goel. This doesn’t mean they will leave product design. They will continue to showcase the interplay of clay, metal and stone to make lights, furniture and accessories.By Ridhi KaleA spin doctorIshrat Sahgal, 29, founder and interior Warchitect Mishcat CO and Ishrat Sahgal Studio, Delhi, www.mishcatco.com Photo: Rajwant RawatHer products are easily the most instagramed designs on this side of the globe.

Lille • With Mario Balotelli unavailable due to a thigh injury, was moved from the left wing to a central role and scored four goals for Nice in their 5-2 win at Guincamp. Scoring four goals is a rare feat in Ligue 1, and while it only takes Pléa’s tally to 10 for the season, his performance (as well as a lovely finish by Bassem Srarfi) served as a potent reminder of the variety of weapons that Lucien Favre has at his disposal. Nice have underwhelmed for much of the season, but with seven goals scored in their last two matches, and the squad’s fitness improving, Nice are showing no signs of a European hangover and could yet be priming themselves for another run at the Europa League.• Nantes haven’t played the most attractive football in France this season – 29 matches played, 29 goals scored and 29 goals conceded – but their late win over Troyes was enough to take them into fifth, with Emiliano Sala’s headed goal the difference in a tense encounter. The win was the Breton club’s first in six weeks, but on a weekend when rivals Rennes and Montpellier dropped points, Claudio Ranieri’s side did just enough to keep their hopes of European football alive.• Rennes were imperious for much of their 1-1 draw against Saint-Étienne on Saturday evening, constantly seeking to trouble the slow-footed Loïc Perrin and Neven Subotic with balls over the top for the fleet-footed Wahbi Khazri and Ismaïla Sarr. However, Stéphane Ruffier was resolute in goal for the visitors, and Rennes’ focus wilted as they tried time and again to beat their opponents with crosses rather than on the counter or with quick interchanges. Rennes have the weapons to finish in the top six – especially after spending a small fortune in the summer – but but unless they can demonstrate more focus, their considerable outlay will have gone for naught. Share on Facebook Rennes Hide Topics Ligue 1 often made the headlines for the wrong reasons last season, with violent incidents in Bastia, Metz, Marseille and Nantes. The league’s governing body, the LFP, came down hard on the offending clubs and their fans, and there had been no major incidents in the current campaign – until Saturday evening, when hundreds of Lille fans invaded the pitch at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy following their team’s 1-1 draw with Montpellier.Lille have struggled badly since Gérard Lopez bought the club last year, with results on the pitch mirroring the club’s rash approach to management. Marcelo Bielsa was hired in May and fired in December after his signings failed to make an impact. Bielsa’s replacement, Christophe Galtier, has brought the team some measure of stability. A vital win over Strasbourg and gritty draws against Lyon and Nantes gave the fans renewed hope of survival, but conceding late goals against Nice and relegation rival Angers has left them 19th in Ligue 1 with nine games to play.A draw against a dogged Montpellier side who are fighting for a place in Europe may not look like a bad result, but the fans’ anger has been brewing for some time. They went into this season with such high hopes given Bielsa was in charge and had money to spend. Things reached a boiling point on Saturday. As the game tricked into injury time there were a few whistles and jeers but the stadium, barely half full, hardly seemed to be reaching any sort of critical mass, even as Galtier was sent off for coming on to the pitch. Shortly after the final whistle, though, fans streamed out from behind Benjamin Lecomte’s goal, rushing toward their own players and attempting to attack them. Thankfully the quick work of the club’s stewards prevented any serious injuries. Stewards protect the players from fans at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. Photograph: Francois Lo Presti/AFP/Getty Images 16Amiens29-930 Montpellier Ligue 1 table 2Monaco294163 Guardian Sport Network 12Caen29-1135 Captain Ibrahim Amadou was quick to condemn the supporters’ actions: “The fans reacted as if the championship was over and we’ve already gone down. There are nine matches left. Yes, they are disappointed but I can’t understand their reaction.” Goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama added: “The real fan will always stay behind the team no matter what. Good or bad times.” Yassine Benzia said: “We cannot accept that there are players on my team who have been assaulted. In the locker room the players were scared. We have a quite young group and it is not every day we see this kind of images.” Thiago Maia reported that a fan had “tried to kick out at me but the steward took the blow”.Galtier compared the fans’ actions to the behaviour of the crowd at Heysel, which was overstating things, but he was right to say there can be no place for this sort of behaviour. Lille were quick to issue their own statement of condemnation, acknowledging that legal action would be taken. Even with such strong rhetoric, however, the club are likely to be forced into playing least one match behind closed doors. Their next home match is a particularly vital one, with relegation rival Amiens scheduled to visit on 1 April.

Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest Nantes 1PSG297277 Beyond the lost gate receipts, there could be further ramifications. Lille’s financial situation, already difficult before Lopez’s arrival, was exacerbated in the summer by the club’s large net spend. Selling Martin Terrier to Lyon for £10.8m in January has helped but the threat of a fine or a points penalty will worry the club. France’s all-powerful financial watchdog, the DNCG, has rarely hesitated before punishing clubs whose finances are not up to standard.A sponsor who was visiting the match from Hong Kong with his family had supposedly committed to a deal worth in the region of €20m but was left horrified by the scenes. It would come as no small irony if the fans’ actions have harmed their club’s finances too.On the pitch, after the players had been safely ushered into the changing rooms, the fans, before being escorted away, were seen chanting “if we go down, we’ll take you down” towards Lopez and general director Marc Ingla. Lopez has remained largely silent on the matter, but Ingla joined Galtier in condemning the fans’ actions, saying the club will have no tolerance in their reaction. The LFP’s disciplinary committee may also adopt a zero-tolerance approach when they meet on Thursday, with a points deduction not out of the question.The irony of that outcome should not be lost on those who invaded the pitch. It may make for uncomfortable reading, but supporters in France – even if these violent agitators are only a small minority – must learn to stop this behaviour. Relegation is a matter of little consequence when compared to serious physical harm.Talking points European club football Reuse this content
The Government will be investing in the training and education of animators, to ensure that the country has the requisite skills, in sufficient numbers, to meet the demand for the expertise both locally and internationally.This was disclosed by State Minister in the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Julian Robinson, during an interview with JIS News at the closing of the KingstOOn animation conference and film festival on June 22, at the Mona Visitors’ Lodge, University of the West Indies (UWI).He said that already, discussions have been held towards introducing animation education in the school system. The intention is to train students to become animation artists for film, television, video games, and the internet.“We have met with the Ministry of Education and they have actually started putting together a curriculum for animation. We are going to ensure that the curriculum is consistent with what the industry actually wants…,” he told JIS News.Mr. Robinson said the staging of the conference and film festival, which sought to give visibility to the pool of talented young Jamaican artists, will provide the catalyst for the development of animation as a major industry in Jamaica.He informed that follow-up discussions have already commenced with the World Bank and Montreal-based Toon Boom, which is a major software development company, “about linking us with companies that are looking for opportunities to outsource to Jamaica, so we have already started the follow-up kind of actions.”The State Minister expressed pleasure at the huge turnout and participation in the two-day event. “It has really been heartwarming to see the kind of turnout and enthusiasm that has been displayed here,” he told JIS News.He praised the animators for the stellar work they produced in the various categories of the competition held, noting that the pieces were judged by a panel of internationally acclaimed adjudicators.“I think it affirms to us that there is an abundance of talent and creativity out there in animation in Jamaica and we just need to put in place the systems and mechanisms to translate what is raw talent into an industry that can earn for Jamaica, foreign exchange, and provide employment for a lot of people, so it has really energised us,” he stated.Over 135 entries were received in the categories of Best Final Animation Product or Advert; Best Experimental Animation; Best Storyboard/Script; and Best Character.“Down to Earth” by Kira Clayton, was adjudged the Best Final Animation Product or Advert; Tanya Batson-Savage’s “Endeavour” won forBest Storyboard/Script; “Red Locks – The Village Ram”by George Hay, was the Best Character; while “HelloKingstOOn”by Kemar McInnis was the Best Experimental Animation.The winners were presented with an array of prizes including scholarships, internships, and free internet service.The two-day KingstOOn conference and film festival was organisedby the Government in partnership with the World Bank, the Canadian High Commission, and JAMPRO.By Chris Patterson, JIS Reporter
Your voice matters and the Select Committee on Participation in the Democratic Process wants to hear it. The select committee is beginning to gather feedback from people throughout the province to help it try to discover ways to reverse the trend of fewer Nova Scotians voting in elections. By offering personal insight, Nova Scotians can help take a step toward a stronger, more representative government. “We encourage Nova Scotians from all walks of life, in every community, to offer input on how to increase the number of people who vote,” said select committee chair Michel Samson. “Participation in the democratic process is a cornerstone of a strong government and assuring everyone has a say in how the province is run.” Initial public comments, teamed with an analysis of past research, will help shape the actions of the select committee as it moves toward issuing a report and recommendations this winter. The all-party committee, introduced by a resolution during the 2006 fall sitting of the House of Assembly, includes vice chairs Mark Parent and Maureen MacDonald as well as Pat Dunn, Keith Bain, Graham Steele, Charlie Parker, H. David Wilson and Harold (Junior) Theriault. People can offer comments by calling, toll-free, at 1-888-388-6489 or 424-5787 in Halifax Regional Municipality, by fax at 902-424-0513 or e-mail at [email protected] . Comments can also be mailed to Select Committee on Participation in the Democratic Process, c/o Legislative Committees Office, 3rd Floor, Dennis Building, 1740 Granville St., P.O. Box 2630 Station M, Halifax, N.S., B3J 3N5. For more information on the select committee, go to the website at www.gov.ns.ca/legislature and select the link on the lower left of the page.
Nova Scotians will have access to more cancer-related resources for their children at local libraries. The nine regional libraries across the province have established a core collection of 15 books to help children who are coping with a parent with a serious illness. The collection will be available in the coming weeks. “The province is proud to continue to support local libraries,” said Leo Glavine, Minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage. “This was brought forward to us as a gap by someone who had a specific need. “Our hope is that enhancing the collection of cancer-related resources will provide parents with cancer the information for their children to better understand the disease and their role in the journey.” The department is providing $5,000 in funding. Each library region will receive at least two copies of each title in the core collection and includes an assortment of fictional and nonfictional material. “Supporting a healthy community is at the centre of our vision,” said Lynn Somers, director of the Nova Scotia Provincial Library. “We know this collection will enhance the services of our public libraries.” The resources will be available within each regional library’s collection. Families who do not have direct access to a library will be able to borrow resources through outreach services like Books by Mail, mobile libraries and ebook services.

MUNICH — Bayern Munich’s finances remain in good health after another year of record turnover.The Bundesliga powerhouse announced at its annual meeting on Friday that turnover rose to rose to 657.4 million euros ($744.3 million) for the financial year covering the 2017-18 season.Operating profit was 136.5 million euros ($154.5 million), down from 149.1 million euros the season before.The club registered profit before tax of 46.2 million euros ($52.3 million) and said its annual net profit of 29.5 million (33.4 million) after tax is the third-highest in its 118-year history.“Our FC Bayern rests on very solid foundations,” club deputy chairman Jan-Christian Dreesen said. “This ever-increasing financial power allows us to make the necessary investment in our first-team squad to ensure we remain competitive among the footballing elite in Europe.”The figures are driven by income from sponsorship and marketing (189.4 million euros, $214.4 million), match operations (172.7 million euros, $195.5 million), merchandising (91.8 million euros, $103.9 million) and transfer fees (28.2 million euros, $31.9 million).The club’s biggest expense was personnel costs at 302.5 million euros ($342.5 million), up from 264.9 million euros last year.Bayern, chasing a record-extending seventh straight Bundesliga title, is currently underperforming in the league, where the team is anine points behind Borussia Dortmund after 12 rounds.The Associated Press
7/31/2018Leonys Martín-0.3Willi Castro0.022 7/31/2017Alex Avila2.1Isaac Paredes0.020 DateVeterans TradedWAR SinceProspects AcquiredWAR SinceAge Paul Richan0.022 Jose King0.020 The 2003 Detroit Tigers were a shining beacon of bad baseball. This was true both as a team — they lost 119 games, the second-most of any MLB team since 19011Only the comically bad 1962 New York Mets, a 120-loss expansion team, lost more. — and also at the individual level. Hapless starter Mike Maroth, for instance, became the only pitcher to lose 20 times in a season since 1980 (and perhaps the last ever to earn that not-so-proud distinction).And yet, this year’s Tigers might be every bit as awful.The FiveThirtyEight projection model thinks the 2019 Tigers will fall a bit short of the 2003 version’s loss total, predicting 111 defeats for Detroit by season’s end. But in terms of other measures, such as our Elo ratings, these Tigers are astonishingly close to their abysmal predecessors. Through 125 games, the Tigers have an Elo of 1398, which not only means Detroit has wrested the crown of “Worst Team in Baseball” away from the Baltimore Orioles — a title that once seemed impossible for the O’s to lose — but it also makes these Tigers just the 14th team ever to have an Elo under 1400 at this stage of a season. Their Elo is currently within striking distance of the 2003 team, which had a 1387 rating at this point in the schedule, and the current Tigers were slightly ahead of their ancestors in the race to baseball’s bottom as recently as eight games ago:(All of this is true even after Detroit pulled off a shocking win over the Houston Astros Wednesday night, in one of the biggest upsets of the 21st century.)It’s never good to be compared with that infamous 2003 squad — even if the current edition of the Tigers was intentionally built to “compete” with the Orioles and Miami Marlins for the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft. After years of enjoying superstar performances from Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrera and Max Scherzer, Motor City fans were hoping they’d never again return to the days of Maroth, Bobby Higginson and Ramón Santiago. But history is repeating itself with the likes of Jordan Zimmermann, JaCoby Jones and Jeimer Candelario this year.For their part, the 2003 Tigers were the culmination of a long, steady decline following the breakup of the mega-talented core that won the 1984 World Series (and posted at least 84 wins eight times between 1983 and 1993). After the 1993 Tigers went 85-77, the team wouldn’t go .500 again for another 13 years. An initial rebuild following the 1994 strike yielded 109 losses in 1996 — impressively bad, if mere child’s play compared with some Tiger seasons to come — and the payoff was a team that topped out at just 79 wins in both 1997 and 2000.Then came one of the sharpest downturns in baseball history. Slugger Juan González — for whom the Tigers had traded a number of their best prospects just a year before — left the Tigers via free agency, the team was fleeced in a handful of trades, the farm system yielded little of note, and the rest of the players Detroit staked its future on (Higginson, Dean Palmer, Damion Easley, etc.) all stopped being productive. Over the four-season period from 2000 to 2003, Detroit’s record got progressively worse each year, by an average of 12 wins per season. By 2003, the Tigers were spending a combined $37 million (or 54 percent of the MLB median team payroll that season — the equivalent of $69 million today) on eight players2Higginson, Palmer, Steve Sparks, Matt Anderson, Craig Paquette, Danny Patterson, Shane Halter and Eric Munson. who together generated 0.18 Wins Above Replacement.3Using our JEFFBAGWELL version that merges the WAR found at Baseball-Reference and FanGraphs into a single metric. It was a masterclass in how to turn an average team into a 43-win one practically overnight.The Tigers won five of their last six games to avoid tying the 1962 Mets’ record for futility. But they also needed bad luck to win so little in the first place. No MLB team truly contains 43-win talent — we think? — and the Tigers undershot the record we’d expect from their run differential by five wins in 2003, with another six-win deficit coming from the team’s run differential falling short of its underlying metrics. Add in even more bad luck from players unexpectedly producing career-low numbers,4In a 2014 update of sabermetrician Phil Birnbaum’s classic study of lucky and unlucky teams, I found that the 2003 Tigers had been the 31st-most unlucky team since 1901 in terms of its players all slipping in performance at once. and the 2003 Tigers were probably a team with 55-to-65 win talent and some of the worst luck in baseball history. Manager Alan Trammell, a Tigers legend as a player, deserved better than to manage such a notoriously cursed season of Detroit baseball.A few teams have come close to matching the ‘03 Tigers ineptitude in the years that followed. The very next season, the Arizona Diamondbacks lost 111 games, just three years removed from winning the World Series. The 2013 Astros (111 losses) and 2018 Orioles (115) also made valiant runs at the Mets’ record this decade. In fact, the recent prevalence of tanking teams has created more historically awful teams than ever before: This season alone, our model thinks four teams — the Marlins, Royals, Orioles and Tigers — will each lose more than 100 games.Detroit’s current path to horrendousness was similar — if slightly more straightforward — than the one the team followed 16 years ago. These Tigers were also coming off a period of sustained success, with MLB’s fourth-best record from 2009 through 2014 and three consecutive League Championship Series appearances in 2011, 2012 and 2013 (including an AL pennant in 2012). But by the end of that stretch, Detroit found itself with an old, expensive roster and a bunch of money committed to veteran stars like Cabrera and Verlander. (Though not Scherzer, oddly enough. Then-general manager Dave Dombrowski let Scherzer walk to the Washington Nationals after the 2014 season; all Scherzer has done since then is lead all MLB pitchers in WAR.)After a downturn to start the 2015 season, in which they would finish finish 74-87, Dombrowski unloaded recently-acquired stars David Price and Yoenis Cespedes at the trade deadline and then was eventually relieved of GM duties himself. The Tigers regrouped for one last bid with an aging core in 2016. It worked, to the extent Detroit had a winning record (86-75) again. But the team missed the playoffs by three games despite once again having one of the highest payrolls in baseball. And when the wheels fell off for good in the summer of 2017, the fire sale was on; midseason deals sent away Verlander, J.D. Martinez, Justin Upton, Alex Avila, Justin Wilson and pretty much anybody else who wasn’t nailed down. The Tigers’ fire sale hasn’t paid dividends … yetAge and wins above replacement (WAR) for notable Detroit Tigers prospects acquired since the 2017 season, plus WAR for veterans traded by Detroit Justin Wilson1.2Jeimer Candelario3.125 8/31/2017Justin Verlander12.8Daz Cameron0.022 7/31/2019Nick Castellanos1.2Alex Lange0.023 Dawel Lugo-0.824 7/31/2019Shane Greene-0.1Joey Wentz0.021 Maybe the Tigers held out for too long before hitting the reset button, trying to extend their window beyond the point of reason. But once it began, this was a conventional rebuild — Detroit flipped their desirable veterans for prospects like teams are supposed to do. Early on, though, the prospects haven’t provided much in return. Of the 17 prospects acquired, only four have made the majors so far, and only one — third baseman Isaac Paredes (acquired from the Cubs) — ranks among the team’s top five prospects according to Baseball America. Most of the prospects are still young, so there’s plenty of time for them to add value in Detroit uniforms. For now, those young Tigers have a lot of ground to make up for the team to break even on its fire-sale deals.Perhaps relatedly, going into the 2019 season, Baseball America ranked the Tigers’ farm system as the 14th-best in baseball. On the one hand, that’s the highest organizational ranking Detroit has had since 2007 and a major improvement after the team ranked among the bottom six nine times between 2008 and 2017. (Blowing up a minor-league system to keep the big-league team competitive is a Dombrowski specialty.) But it’s also behind schedule for the type of total teardowns the Tigers are trying to emulate, such as those executed by the Astros and Chicago Cubs earlier this decade. By the same stage in their respective rebuilds — judging by when each team dipped below 70 wins for the first time in its ramp-up towards contention — the Astros had MLB’s ninth-best system and the Cubs ranked fourth:Detroit’s current farm system ranking improved to 13th after its midseason deals this year, and that’s roughly where the Tigers were (12th) back in 2003. The core of that young group — led by Curtis Granderson — played a big role in leading Detroit to a surprise World Series appearance within three years of its 119-loss catastrophe. That model might be a good one for the Tigers to follow when they are finally ready to compete again. But it’s also worth wondering whether bottoming out has the same competitive advantage now that so many other teams are also doing it. When the Tigers lost 119 games, by contrast, that was 20 more than any other team in baseball. The ‘03 Tigers didn’t mean to build one of the worst teams ever, but the 2019 version can’t make that case as convincingly — and neither can the Orioles or Marlins. Nor can this year’s team claim anywhere near as bad luck as in 2003.As it stands now, the Tigers are currently in the driver’s seat when it comes to the race for next year’s No. 1 draft pick. Though they’ve built one of the worst teams of all time, it will all be worth it if they can use the picks and prospects to get back to the World Series quickly, just like the Cubs and Astros — or even an earlier version of the Tigers — did not so long ago. But if not, are all the losses be worth it?

A scandal-hit NHS trust faces its third inquiry to investigate patient deaths.Liverpool Community Health (LCH) will also be scrutinised over “historic incidents of serious harm” and 17,000 cases related to patient safety.The government review, which is expected to finish in 2020, comes amid fears that 150 patient deaths were not properly investigated by the trust.Health minister Stephen Hammond said patients and families affected by substandard levels of care deserve answers.”We are prepared to take any action that is necessary – locally or nationally – to prevent such occurrences in the future,” he added.David Rafferty, chief executive of LCH’s successor Mersey Care, said there is a “disturbing picture” of the way incidents had been reported. It comes after two previous reports found evidence of patient harm and a culture of bullying at the “dysfunctional” trust, which was plagued by staffing problems.Investigators previously found that patients suffered too many falls, with some left with hip fractures, had bed sores that were left to get worse and suffered from inadequate levels of care.Senior managers were so determined to achieve financial trust status that they turned a blind eye to issues, discouraged the reporting of incidents and were so inexperienced they did not realise they were out of their depth, the reports found. LCH was formed in 2010 and ran health care services for about 750,000 people in Merseyside until it was taken over by Mersey Care last year.Mersey Care medical director David Fearnley said LCH’s system was “absolutely” not safe, adding: “It’s likely that avoidable harm occurred because the learning that could have been in place wasn’t in place.”The new inquiry will be overseen by a panel led by Bill Kirkup, who led a 2018 investigation into the trust, as well as a review into the Morecambe Bay scandal at Furness General Hospital.

Updated 10.55pmA WOMAN HAS been charged with assisting the suicide of another woman in Dublin in what is believed to be the first case of its kind in Ireland.Gail O’Rourke of Kilclare Gardens in Tallaght appeared before the Dublin District Court this morning before Judge Michael Walsh under the Criminal Law (Suicide) Act 1993.She was charged with assisting the suicide of Bernadette Forde in Dublin between 10 March 2011 and 6 June 2011.The case was sent forward for trial at the Circuit Criminal Court which will begin on 13 December.Assisting another person to end their own life is a criminal offence in Ireland. Section 2 (2) of the Act states that anyone who aids, abets, or procures the suicide of another person – or the attempt by another person to take their own life – can be sentenced to up to fourteen years in jail.Earlier this year the Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution does not contain either a right to suicide or to arrange for the end of one’s life following the court battle by former lecturer Marie Fleming.Fleming, who is in the advanced stages of multiple sclerosis, had taken a case to test whether her family would be prosecuted if they helped her to take her own life.Originally published 1.00pmSupreme Court: Ireland has a right to life, not a right to die > Poll: Do you think the law should be changed to allow for assisted suicide? > Read: Taoiseach rejects plea to allow for assisted suicide >
A Portland man accused of cashing more than $67,000 in fraudulent checks around the Vancouver area made a first appearance Wednesday in Clark County Superior Court.Burt E. Wright, 62, appeared on suspicion of first-degree theft in connection with suspicious withdrawals made at various Riverview Community Bank branches in Clark County and Portland.Shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday, Wright entered the bank at 1220 N.E. 88th St., went to the counter and presented a check made out to him for $8,456. The bank teller was aware of several suspicious withdrawals from that account the previous day and contacted law enforcement, according to a probable cause affidavit.Clark County sheriff’s deputies contacted Wright and learned that approximately $67,000 in suspicious withdrawals were made on that account Monday. The withdrawals were checks cashed on the account at various Riverview Community Bank branches. The amount of each check was about $5,000, the affidavit states.Officers contacted the owner of the business associated with that account, and he said that no representative of his company authorized a check be written to Wright. The business owner became aware of the fraud earlier that morning, he said, and no checks appeared to be missing from his business. He said he doesn’t know how Wright obtained his account information or produced a check, according to court documents.
Anuj Puri is Chairman of ANAROCK Property Consultants. Views are personal. The above graph confirms that a large chunk (67 percent) of unsold inventory to be completed in 2018 will be added in National Capital Region (NCR), Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) and Bangalore.· Over the past few years, NCR – largely an investor-driven market – has been a front-runner a mong the top 7 cities in terms of churning out new residential launches. However, developers’ focus on completions has been minimal. Now, the entire new launch activity seems to have shifted to a slow track due to the combined effect of demonetization, RERA and GST. Among NCR’s many developers, those that had been relying of deceit and misinformation are now having a rough time as the real estate business as a whole re-orients itself to the rebooted market conditions where focus on project execution has become a paramount consideration.· MMR’s real estate market is driven by a good mix of investors and end-users, and has also been flooded with new launches over the past few years. While the many structural changes and policy reforms in the recent past have taken the sheen off the high-end and luxury real estate segment, mid-range and affordable housing projects will remain in focus in MMR for the foreseeable future. With massive growth potential and huge latent demand in the suburbs and peripheral areas, housing requirements in these regions will make a comeback sooner than in other parts of the city.· Bangalore, largely an end-user driven market, has always adjusted as per market guiding circumstances and developers have accordingly restricted new launches to align with realistic absorption potential in such a market. This time around too, Bangalore’s developers are concentrating on completing existing projects rather than adding new ones to the market.In terms of affordability, buyers scouting for ready-to-move-in homes priced below Rs 80 lakh will have a bracing spread of options across the top 7 cities. Overall, buying ready-to-move-in properties in a buyer-favouring markets is always beneficial:· No execution delay· Attractive pricing· Buyers can relocate immediately to save on additional rentals· WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get)The major disruptive structural changes and policy reforms are now behind us. As 2018 begins on the right note of transparency and the right approach by developers, ready-to-move-in homes are indeed the flavour of the season. If Union Budget 2018-19 takes the right direction for the Great Indian Middle-Class, the sales uptick of these properties could be very significant indeed.Anuj Puri Real estate [Representational Image]A whopping 7 lakh residential units had remained unsold across top 7 cities of India at the end of December 2017. Add to this around 1.7 lakh unsold apartments that will be completed in 2018. Does that invoke grim concerns for the Indian real estate sector? Or, is there light at the end of the tunnel? Is the return of a bullish buyer market round the corner? More importantly, how will the upcoming Union Budget 2018 help the expected realty resurgence? The Indian real estate market is waiting with bated breath to see how it can benefit as the year 2018 unfolds. In fact, it has never been a better time for aspiring homebuyers, as there is a more than generous stock of ready-to-move housing options across most Indian cities.Ready properties are the pièce de résistance of 2018, not least of all because they are the most de-risked purchase proposition, do not attract GST and offer instant gratification. After all, owning a house is the culmination of almost every Indian’s lifetime efforts and aspirations.The sense of security, achievement and social stature linked to home ownership is what has for long been driving the demand for – and supply of – residential developments across India. All major roads, railway stations and airports are flanked by hoardings that advertise real estate projects.With a massive urbanization rate of more than 30 percent (estimated to reach 40 percent by 2030), the demand for homes in India is an assured long-term story in which chapters will continue to unfold. However, due to wavering economic growth, an uncertain job market and rising property prices, residential real estate demand has remained largely subdued over the last few years.Paradoxically, developers continued their protracted project launch spree – leading to a huge unsold inventory pile-up.Due to the structural changes and policy reforms such as demonetization, Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) Bill and Goods and Services Tax (GST), the new launch activity slowed down in 2017. Nevertheless, December 2017 saw more than 7 lakh units remaining unsold across top 7 cities of India.Under the RERA regime, stringent guidelines and financial discipline have now been force-fed into the systems and processes governing the real estate business in India. Unsurprisingly, developers are now focusing on completing existing projects to avoid being entrapped in compliance hassles.This sharp focus on project completion is a blessing for homebuyers. The mammoth unsold inventory has already turned the Indian real estate arena into a strongly buyer-favouring market.Now, at the beginning of 2018, there is a huge opportunity to cherry-pick ready-to-move-in house as around 1.7 lakh unsold units are likely to get completed in this year. With the right kind of boosts to the Indian consumption story, we could see a massive return of buyers who are hoping to snap up ready-to-move homes but need that last decisive ‘last-mile’ incentive push.
Major Rohingya refugee camp populations in Bangladesh. AFPA plan to start repatriating Rohingya Muslims back to Myanmar is premature and the refugees are “terrified” about leaving Bangladesh where they sought refuge, dozens of aid agencies working in the region said Friday.More than 720,000 Rohingya Muslims fled Myanmar’s northern Rakhine state after a heavyhanded army crackdown in August last year that survivors say involved mass rape and extrajudicial killings.UN officials say the country’s military leaders should be investigated for genocide but Myanmar has rebuffed the calls, arguing it was only defending itself against Rohingya militants who attacked police posts.Both Bangladesh and Myanmar signed a repatriation agreement in November last year to allow Rohingya to return but many fear going back without guarantees of citizenship, freedom of movement and safety.However the governments confirmed in recent weeks that they were pushing ahead with the first large-scale repatriation set for mid-November, prompting an outcry from activists who say conditions on the ground in Rakhine are not adequate to take the refugees back.Rohingya Camp”They are terrified about what will happen to them if they are returned to Myanmar now, and distressed by the lack of information they have received,” the group of 42 aid agencies and civil society groups said in a statement that referred to the push as “dangerous.””They fled to Bangladesh to seek safety and they are very grateful to the Government of Bangladesh for giving them a safe haven.”Oxfam, World Vision and Save the Children were among the groups working in Myanmar and Bangladesh that signed the statement.They said refugees fear living in enclosed settlements like the one in central Rakhine state, where more than 120,000 Rohingya have been confined to camps for six years since intercommunal violence erupted in the region in 2012.Myint Khaing, the Maungdaw township administrator in northern Rakhine, told AFP that November 15 is the estimated repatriation start date and that the plan is to receive more than 2,200 people in total at a rate of 150 per day.But he seemed unsure if it would go ahead.”We can confirm only on the 15th whether the people from our given list are coming or not,” he said.Northern Rakhine has been largely sealed off since the crackdown except for tightly organised government trips for media and senior visiting diplomats.The UN has been granted access to the area to assess conditions on the ground but the approvals have been slow and the amount of territory accessible has been limited.Authorities in Bangladesh worry that Rohingya may once again risk travelling to other parts of Southeast Asia by boat, a route previously popular with those seeking economic opportunities outside the grim camps.This week Bangladesh’s coast guard rescued 33 Rohingyas and detained six alleged human traffickers from a fishing trawler headed for Malaysia in the Bay of Bengal.
Nicolas MaduroPresident Nicolas Maduro’s government won a landslide victory in closely watched regional elections in Venezuela on Sunday, according to official results that the opposition said were “suspicious.”Maduro’s socialist party won governorships of 17 of the 23 states with the opposition Democratic Union Roundtable (MUD) coalition taking only five, according to the results announced by the National Elections Council.The official turnout was 61.14 percent.Maduro said his government had scored an “emphatic victory” over its rivals.”The opposition has five,” Maduro underscored in a speech to supporters, adding that his party could win one further state where the results were still in dispute.Public opinion surveys had predicted that the opposition would win a majority of state governorships despite alleged government dirty tricks to suppress a high turnout.Sunday’s vote came against the backdrop of an International Monetary Fund report in which it sees Venezuela’s economic downturn, and the suffering of its population, continuing.Venezuela “remains in a full-blown economic, humanitarian, and political crisis with no end in sight,” the Fund said in a report on Latin American economies.International powers accuse Maduro of dismantling democracy by taking over state institutions in the wake of an economic collapse caused by a fall in the price of oil, its main source of revenue.Sunday’s polls were the first contested by the opposition since legislative elections in 2015 that gave it a majority in the National Assembly.The MUD has seen Maduro’s hand strengthened after he faced down four months of protests that killed 125 people, forming a Constituent Assembly packed with his own allies and wresting legislative power from the opposition-dominated National Assembly.For Maduro, the polls were an opportunity to counter allegations of dictatorship leveled at him at home and abroad after forming the Constituent Assembly.
Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,About the authorView All Posts Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — The Rev. William Barber II, a progressive activist and pastor, addressed the executive committee of the Democratic National Committee on Friday (Aug. 23), calling on party leaders to host a presidential debate focused on poverty and to do more to address the concerns of poor and low-income Americans.The co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign, named for the last major campaign of Martin Luther King Jr., Barber insisted that poverty touches all people and regions of the United States and overlaps with related concerns such as racism, voter suppression, healthcare, “ecological justice,” militarism and religious nationalism.“We have to say the word, ‘Poverty,’” said Barber, according to a copy of his remarks provided to Religion News Service. “We need to lift up the stories of folks in Appalachia and Kansas and the Mississippi Delta. We need to hold them alongside the folks in our gentrifying cities, some of whom work two jobs and still sleep in their cars at night.”The speech, delivered during the DNC’s summer meeting in San Francisco, California, comes as Democratic primary candidates are jostling for votes among the party’s progressive base, for whom Barber has become an increasingly visible leader since speaking at the 2016 Democratic [email protected] & @KamalaHarris watching @RevDrBarber backstage pic.twitter.com/IGJaR836ca— Sabrina Singh (@sabrinasingh24) August 23, 2019When Barber concluded his speech, many in the room leapt to their feet in raucous applause as DNC Chair Tom Perez declared “Let the church say, ‘Amen’!” Perez then called on those present to take a moment of contemplative silence.Officials from the Poor People’s Campaign said Barber planned on calling for a Democratic debate on the topic of poverty, but the chances of having such a debate are slim. In June, DNC officials told RNS that the party does not intend to hold single-issue debates. On Thursday (Aug. 22), the DNC resolutions committee voted 17-8 against holding a debate focused on climate change, sparking outrage among environmental activists.Asked about a potential poverty debate at a candidate forum hosted by the Poor People’s Campaign in June, however, all nine Democratic presidential hopefuls who attended — including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Kamala Harris — said they would support it.The Poor People’s Campaign, which now has established chapters in more than 40 states, has long championed the notion of creating a “new electorate” of poor and low-income Americans, who are often less likely to vote than other Americans. If mobilized, Barber and his allies argue, the less well-off could potentially swing elections.In his address, Barber announced his intention to launch a nine-month, 22-stop “We Will Do MORE” campaign focused on mobilizing, organizing, registering and educating poorer Americans. In a statement issued before Barber’s address, the Poor People’s Campaign noted that it was not meant to endorse any party or politician, adding that officials also reached out to the Republican Party but have not yet heard back. In addition, Barber argued in his speech that the issue of poverty is not about “left versus right, but right versus wrong.”Even so, the pastor, who helped lead North Carolina’s Moral Mondays protests credited with helping to unseat the state’s Republican governor in 2016 — had harsh words for Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, comparing his decision to block efforts to pass voting rights legislation to infamous segregationist Strom Thurmond’s decision to filibuster the Civil Rights Act in 1957.Barber also voiced thinly veiled criticism of the Trump administration’s policies and of Christians who support them.“For too long, faith has been hijacked by those who say abortion and sexuality are the only moral issues,” Barber said. “They tell religious people to vote their pro-life/pro-family values, then they use their political power to pass policies that keep families in poverty, separate families at the border, keep families from getting healthcare and endanger the lives of children in schools, worshipers in churches and the planet itself.”He invoked scripture to dismiss claims that polices designed to help the poor would be tantamount to socialism.“If someone calls it socialism, then we must compel them to acknowledge that the Bible promotes socialism,” he said. “This current administration is practicing socialism to corporations and the greedy through tax cuts, deregulation and economic incentives. And then they refuse to bail out communities and human beings.”Barber mentioned Pastor Cecil Williams of San Francisco’s Glide Memorial Church, whose shelter has served 80,000 meals to the city’s poor.“When we have 26 presidential debates and not one hour is focused on living wages, we must have a movement,” Barber said in his speech, referring to past presidential election cycles.He later added: “We need a revolution of values in public life, and we need leadership that will draw on our deepest religious and Constitutional traditions to fight not only for what seems achievable, but for what is our moral duty.”Barber and the Poor People’s Campaign have already exhibited unusual influence on the 2020 Democratic primary. South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, bearing “silent witness,” showed up at a protest Barber and his co-chair, the Rev. Liz Theoharis, held outside the White House in June to decry the Trump administration’s policies.Buttigieg later referred to Barber while speaking at a Black Church PAC event in August. Joe Biden, too, has referenced arguments made by the Poor People’s Campaign when making claims about widespread poverty in the U.S. Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email News By: Jack Jenkins jackmjenkins By: Jack Jenkins jackmjenkins Share This!

The company didn’t announce a price point for the speaker yet, and instead promised updates for price and availability soon.One of the music services available on the speaker will be Spotify, which is being deeply integrated into both the Bixby speaker as well as other Samsung devices. The company even invited Spotify CEO Daniel Ek on stage to announce this new partnership. “The partnership that we are announcing with Samsung today is a true cross-platform listening experience,” Ek said.Part of the arrangement will allow what Samsung calls seamless continuity: Consumers will be able to start listening to an album or playlist on their phone, then continue to play the music to their TV when they get home, and finally press play on their smart speaker to keep playing the same music there.Samsung’s partnership with Spotify is notable for a number of reasons. For Samsung, it’s the latest episode of a multi-year search for a distinct music strategy, which included the launch of its own Milk Music service — a service that was killed two years after its launch. Samsung also briefly flirted with acquiring Tidal, and more recently partnered with Google to use Google Play Music as its default music service.For Spotify, the partnership is a clear attempt to fight off Apple Music, which is benefitting from its close iPhone integration. Unsurprisingly, Ek boasted Thursday that the deal would give his company a vastly larger footprint. “We’re talking about hundreds of millions of devices,” he said. Samsung used its Unpacked event in New York Thursday to unveil its own smart speaker, dubbed Galaxy Home. The company also announced a new partnership with Spotify, promising to deeply integrate the music service into a range of Samsung devices including phones, TVs and the upcoming Galaxy Home speaker.Samsung’s Galaxy Home speaker will be powered by Bixby, the company’s smart assistant. It will use eight microphones, which are supposed to be capable of optimizing far-field voice recognition even in large homes.The speaker will be powered by audio technology from AKG, a subsidiary of the speaker maker Harman, which Samsung acquired last year. It features six tweeters for omnidirectional sound, as well as one woofer. The speaker also integrates a smart home hub capable of controlling devices compatible with Samsung’s Smartthings technology.
Halloween is the perfect time of year for all things spooky. There are horror flicks to binge-watch, Edgar Allan Poe stories to read, and of course great debates on whether ghosts are real or products of our imagination. With paranormal interest on the rise, people want to know if things exist beyond our physical world. According to the 2017 Chapman University Survey of American Fears, 52.3 percent of respondents believe that places can be haunted by spirits.

However, a local resident revealed that he discovered the shipping container after a storm in the ’80s and local beach cleaners were finally able to find it in a partially-submerged cave.GARFIELD PHONE MYSTERY: “Garfield” phones have been mysteriously washing up on French beaches for decades.

Under the boulders in front of the entrance, we found 23 complete handsets with electronics and wires.”(Photo Credit: FRED TANNEAU/AFP/Getty Images)Local beach cleaners might have finally discovered where the “Garfield” phones came from, however, there are details missing on what happened to the shipping container, why it became wedged in the partially-submerged cave, and if many containers of “Garfield” phones ended up in the water and traveled to other locations.“We have no idea what happened at the time: we do not know where it came from, what boat,” Fabien Boileau, director of the Iroise Marine Nature Park in Finistere, told AFP. “And, we don’t know if several containers fell into the water, or only one.”For now, local beach cleaners will continue to pick up the “Garfield” phones from France’s beaches and keep an eye out for any other quirky plastic novelties that might wash up on the nation’s coast.More on Geek.com:Rare First Edition ‘Harry Potter’ Book With Typos Sells for $90,000Lego Celebrates Batman’s 80 Birthday With Six New SetsThe Dream of the ’90s Is Alive in Nike’s KD12
Observers generally say that eventually all cars will use some form of electric engine and that means recharging. The more charging opportunity, the more confident customers will be about EV adoptions. While Qualcomm is throwing its competitive hat into the ring with its new charging system, the company does not deny that this is no magic bullet if there is no adequate transport system to accommodate wide deployment. Wireless recharging points embedded in roads to give electric vehicles complete autonomy would be the next phase, allowing drivers to drive and charge at the same time. Qualcomm says pads buried in the motorway can allow EVs to travel longer distances, have smaller batteries, and weigh less. According to Tech-On, the frequency range used for power transmission is 20k-140kHz. The power to be transmitted is 3kW for single phase, 7kW for three phases and 18kW or higher in the case of rapid charging. A home could be set up with the single phase 3kW IPT for charging a car overnight.Many product debuts at CES are regularly criticized by viewers as disappearing into vapor once the show draws to a close, but Qualcomm’s system is scheduled for a more aggressive debut, in the form of a field test in 50 EVs over a two-year trial period.Wireless recharging points will be rolled out across London this year to put the charging system to the test. The testing is supported by Transport for London and Mayor Boris Johnson. The Mayor has showed strong support in promoting EVs. In 2009 he pledged that every Londoner will be no more than one mile from an electric car charge point by 2015. Electric cars get charged wirelessly in London (w/ Video) Explore further The “Qualcomm Halo Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging (WEVC)” technology demonstrated at CES works with a transmitter pad placed near the car’s vehicle pad, which is connected to the car’s battery. Once the car is parked over that pad, the car starts charging. A controller turns alternating current into direct current. An in-car display tells when the car is lined up and when charging has started.The system uses magnetic resonance to couple power from the Base Charging Unit (BCU) to the Vehicle Charging Unit (VCU). “The system works on the principle of a magnetic resistance similar to charging an electric toothbrush,” said Qualcomm’s Joe Barret, a Qualcomm executive. © 2011 PhysOrg.com (PhysOrg.com) — Qualcomm has demonstrated its new wireless power transmission system for electric vehicles (EVs) at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The system, including one pad for power transmitting, another for power-receiving, and control unit, uses the inductive transfer method to charge an EV. The chip-maker’s technology, Inductive Power Transfer (IPT), has a technology history that rests with the company that it acquired in November, HaloIPT. The latter, which made a name for itself in developing wireless charging technology for EVs, was a spinoff from the University of Auckland in New Zealand. This document is subject to copyright.

Weight loss within the control group was 1.2 percent during the same time frame. Body language expert Traci Brown spoke at the AHRA 2019 meeting on how to identify when a person is not being honest by their body language. She said medical imaging department administrators can use this knowledge to help in hiring decisions and managing staff. In the retrospective study conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, researchers reviewed the records of patients who underwent transarterial embolization for upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. The study group included 14 patients who underwent embolization of the left gastric artery, which supplies blood to the part of the stomach where the hormone ghrelin is predominantly produced.

MMI Takes Manhattan September 7, 2011 428 Views Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Company News Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers 2011-09-07 Abby Gregory On of the country’s largest independent mortgage companies, “”Mortgage Master, Inc.””:http://www.mortgagemasterinc.com/, has opened its first office in Manhattan. MMI cites the city’s relatively resilient housing market as the catalyst behind its recent expansion in New York.[IMAGE]The Manhattan branch will serve the Tri-State area, which includes Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York, and Massachusetts-based MMI holds licenses in all three states. Additionally, the company is licensed in more than 20 states nationwide and boasts bricks-and-mortar locations in nine of the 20 operating areas. MMI estimates that it sells approximately $6 billion in loans annually, and the financial entity also has a strong presence in the refinancing sector.[COLUMN_BREAK]Commenting on the move, MMI’s Manhattan leader, Marc Kunen, said, “”The Manhattan housing market has been remarkably resilient. Establishing a foothold in the city will allow us to compete as one of the lowest cost providers and avail those savings to our customers.””Kunen elaborated on his optimistic approach, adding, “”There are an awful lot of people poised to buy right now.”” Kunen recently joined MMI to open its latest office, and he was previously with GFI Mortgage Bankers as a managing director for the entity’s Manhattan branch, helping grow GFI’s residential mortgage division to a $200 million enterprise.MMI’s CEO, Leif Thomsen, also weighed in on the company’s newly opened location, stating, “”Our company has been successful because we open offices in markets like Manhattan where we know we are dealing with a stable, reliable community of borrowers. The housing market is growing in the Metropolitan area, and we want to contribute to that growth by offering low cost loans to the community.””MMI’s Manhattan office boasts a tony address, located at 590 Madison Avenue, and its corporate headquarters remain in Walpole, Massachusetts. Also of note, MMI employs more originators named to the annual Top 200 loan officer list than any other U.S. lender, in terms of dollar volume. in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing, Technology Share
Flight comparison company Skyscanner today launches cheap flights into space. While excitement is building about the increasingly imminent prospect of space tourism following Virgin Galactic’s successful test flights in March, the prohibitive $200,000 price tag makes this a final frontier too far for many would be astronauts. “Virgin Galactic is doing a brilliant job of creating excitement and raising awareness that space tourism is a real possibility, but this is not a one rocket space race by any means and space travel doesn’t have to cost the earth,” said Skyscanner co-founder Barry Smith. “The no frills model has transformed air travel over the last decade so it’s no surprise a low cost contender has emerged to make this market more accessible to all.”Low cost space travel venture Copenhagen Suborbitals – based in Denmark – is taking a no-frills approach in order to bring the cost of space travel back down to earth. Prices per trip have not been finalised but are anticipated to substantially undercut the Virgin Galactic fare. There will be no in-flight service, no baggage allowance and no seating – passengers will have to stand throughout the duration of the space flight, although ‘buttock and arm pit support’ will be available.“We’d like to call this company the Ryanair of space travel but we can’t – you don’t have to pay extra for check-in baggage. In fact you can’t take any baggage at all,” said Barry Smith.

It’s even possible we may seem some interest from forlorn former Concorde passengers who miss the view on flights from London to New York. Although the flights are currently starting from a barge in the Baltic Sea, and I’m not actually sure where they’re landing, so that may not be ideal for them.”Copenhagen Suborbitals is planning a test flight in June of this year, powering a spacecraft into a suborbital trajectory.

hearings about my "collusion with the Russians" nobody has been able to show any proof Sad Donald J Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16 2017 [NYT] Write to Maya Rhodan at [email protected] down a neon-gobsmacked raceway in Mario Kart 8 I snake left then right then left again chaining mini-turbos and rocketing past visually thumping loudspeakers pulsing purplish stars and a tower-sized EQ that throbs in time with the soundtrack’s symphony of techno Everything’s moving and alive and lit up like one long continuous Jumbotron And then I’m gliding over lacquered blackness my just-upturned anti-grav wheels flying inches above what looks like grooved vinyl the music flanging the track ahead twisting and looping back at me — above me — like a disco Mbius strip That’s what it’s like to wrap your hands around the Wii U’s GamePad and plumb Mario Kart 8‘s wild panoply of wonderfully absurd tracks — 16 new 16 reimagined — spinning sideslipping soaring and tumbling roaring down vast mountainside waterfalls or bulleting through squalling banks of lightning-lit clouds (“Hello hello… I’m at a place called Vertigo…“) Imagine a carnival of race tropes a grab bag of driver profiles tactics and race types a melange of little gameplay iterations and configuration tweaks and “Holy crap I’m racing up and down that” moments jammed into a single game To sum up my affection for this best of all Nintendo’s Mario Karts to date in a few words: lavish kaleidoscopic gasp-inducing ingenious exotic balletic and — let’s switch from words to statements — something I’ll be playing for a long long time Not because the basic kart racing’s been rejiggered in some wondrous new Nintendo-fied way It hasn’t Think of it more like a 22-year-old snowball that’s still snowballing a slightly bigger smorgasbord of soothing cartoon-scape tracks and fanciful kart types a collage of all-terrain vehicles (including actual ATVs this time enlarging racer metrics like speed acceleration and handling) some new objects to toss (the cleverest: the piranha plant that snaps up items coins and other racers and the three-use boomerang flower that does damage outgoing and incoming) upside-down anti-grav racing (though since the screen shifts to maintain perspective it doesn’t feel like upside-down racing) more karts and kart parts and unlockables and so forth And then Nintendo whops you upside both retinas with some of the most sublime visuals ever seen in or out of a Nintendo game The ballyhooed new mechanic — antigravity racing your wheels automatically flipping perpendicular to the ground like Doc Brown’s DeLorean during Back to the Future‘s coda — makes the new every-which-way (including upside-down and backwards) tracks feel cooler to course through but that’s about it unless you’re playing cooperatively The novelty here’s that instead of avoiding drivers you’re encouraged to ram them which causes both vehicles to turbo off in different directions But it’s too happenstance as a solo tactic other drivers slamming into you from behind unexpectedly or sliding away at the last minute and wrecking your angle of attack Team up with another player by contrast and it becomes an indispensable tactic the two of you slamming into one another willfully rocketing down the course like a yo-yoing centrifuge The series’ signature element of chance remains: the most skilled players in the world can still wind up losing an otherwise expertly played race thanks to another player’s inopportunely dispatched blue shell And as usual finding the fastest path through a course (and figuring out how to maximize drifting through it) is at least half of winning You can hone your skills learning from the best players by using returning features like Ghost mode (in Time Trials) uploading your own performances as you like And though I wasn’t able to test it (it’s not working yet) the game now supports (modest) editing and uploading of video clips to YouTube a move that only brings it up to par with its rivals but warrants an attaboy nonetheless You can’t talk about Mario Kart 8 the most important game Nintendo’s yet released for its flagship console without thinking about the troubled state of the Wii U Mario Kart 8 alone won’t save the Wii U if indeed the Wii U needs saving That’s the implicit question the kart-riding elephant in all the game’s glittering stadiums water parks shoals harbors mansions and electrodromes No single game has the power to make (or for that matter break) something as multivalent as a platform Mario Kart 8 is wonderful thank goodness but it’s still just one game Nor does the racer best emblematize what the Wii U stands for: playing games with a tablet that’s not a tablet juggling input from disjunct screens that aren’t supposed to feel disjunct (and they definitely seem at odds here — I rarely felt comfortable enough to look down) Sure the Wii U GamePad offers sometimes-complimentary feedback but nothing about its stack of command center feeds tracking racer positions or letting you enable motion control steering on the fly feel essential much less exude halcyon-days-Wii novelty Put it this way: if you have a Wii U it’s the proverbial no-brainer for any sort of player casual to pro If you don’t own a Wii U here’s a reason to buy one with the caveat that the Wii U’s software future looks pretty hazy right now Nintendo’s deluxe 32GB Wii U bundled with Mario Kart 8 runs $330 knocking $30 off the standalone price for the racer so there’s that but it’s still $330 for one game (plus a driving wheel and Wii Remote) and a platform with an uncertain future But it’s also one of the best games Nintendo’s delivered and a reminder that when the company’s firing on all cylinders — even when it’s standing on its own shoulders gameplay-wise — its creative output remains peerless 5 out of 5 Wii U Write to Matt Peckham at [email protected]" which the university said would "provide

new-found aggression believing that beaten Australia will have far more respect for them in the second and final test at Chittagong next week As well as matching the skills of their opponents Wednesday’s maiden test win over Steve Smith’s men bore witness to a meaner streak among players keen to engage in verbal volleys with the tourists at the Shere Bangla National Stadium Shakib led the way by giving Nathan Lyon a send off while Tamim Iqbal and others were involved in brief altercations with the Australians as Bangladesh staved off a late Pat Cummins assault to claim a thrilling 20-run victory “Australians are very good at it we are learning from them” Shakib whose all-round brilliance with bat and ball earned him man of the match honours said afterwards “After this test match they will show a lot more respect” Shakib’s pre-series suggestion that Bangladesh could win both matches bemused many but also indicated the growing self-belief of a team who have registered their first test victories over England and Sri Lanka in the last year “These wins will help us become confident” Mushfiqur said “These experiences count a lot When we face similar situations we can handle them better “They (Australia) showed aggression but at the same time they also realised how aggressive Bangladesh can be not only while playing but also in our body language” Mushfiqur claimed Australia’s predicament was evident when Glenn Maxwell indulged in a bit of time-wasting to avoid facing an extra over before lunch on Wednesday The delaying tactic had little effect as he was dismissed immediately after the break “A team like Australia who always try to dominate the opposition were not willing to play an extra over before the break That’s a big statement” he said The

opener Tamim calling them role models for young cricketers in the country as both players celebrated their 50th test appearances with strong performances “These two players are a class apart because

cent of the total population in citiesIndia and China were overwhelmingly rural and equally urban In 1990tooat 25-26 per cent of the totalthe urban proportions were similar By 2011howevera dramatic gap had appeared At the end of 2011the Chinese government saidChina was 51 per cent urbanwhereas that figure for India was only 32 per cent Urban China has stolen a big march over urban India in the last two decades Scholars have always been sceptical about official Chinese statistics It is also unclear how urban is defined in China During my recent visitIfor examplecould not get a clear answer from Chinese experts about the definition of the urban Urban is what the Chinese government calls urbanit seems But however one may cut the statistical clothdriving along Chinas industrialised eastern coast tells a clear tale Not even the most urbanised states of India look comparable: not Tamil Nadunot Gujaratnot Maharashtra The partial exception is greater Delhi Pictures and accounts from the Chinese interior also do not lookor soundas rural as those from Indias least urbanised states China today is undoubtedly much more urbanised than India Why is that so And who has paid for Chinas urban transformation While firmer answers must await careful scrutinywe can begin to generate some early ideas for reflection and debate The first questionsome might sayis straightforward As my seminar interlocutors in Beijing and Guangzhou arguedChinas per capita incomecompared to Indias todayis roughly three times as high At higher levels of incomesocieties tend to be more urban (and also generally less poor) But this argument begs an important query Is China more urban because it is richeror is China richer because it has pursued urbanisation more vigorously What is the cause What is the effect Development theory and historical experience make it clear that agricultural and rural incomes simply cannot grow as fast as industrial and urban incomes In developing countrieswhen agriculture grows at 3 per cent per yearthe performance is called good; when industry grows at that ratewe call it disappointing Industry is known to have grown at 8-10 per cent per year for several decades in successful developing economies No developing agriculture has ever grown at that rate for more than a few years Agriculture simply cannot grow as fast as industry on a sustained basis It follows that the greater the industrial or urban growth ratethe greater an economys overall output An unrelenting focus on agriculture and a neglect of cities simply hurt the pursuit of larger incomes and welfare An elementary principle of development is that for societies to become richeragriculture must decline and cities must rise The debate can be on: how should agriculture decline What are the best terms But decline it must Gandhis village republics can only be poor and contentednot rich and happy Indias past lived in villages Its future will reside in cities Thereforeit makes sense to ask how China urbanised so rapidly No society in history has ever added 350-400 million people to its cities in a matter of two decadesas China has done since 1990 And no society has pulled more people out of poverty as quickly A stark difference between India and China has to do with the ownership of land In Indiaa large proportion of land is privately owned In Chinathere is no private property in land Rural land belongs to collectivesurban land to governments Citizensfirmsorganisations have only user rights over landno ownership rights As a consequenceonce the government sponsors an industrial or urban project factoriesmetroshigh-speed trainsbridgesroadshousingcommercial buildings it faces little legal contestation Chinese governments can easily claim that urbanisation is in the public interest and individual interests must be sacrificed for the greater good of society Confident that no legal challenges can deter them60 per cent of the provincial cities are currently planning to build metros From an Indian perspectivethat is truly staggering Only Delhi metro and to some extentKolkata have gone smoothly If legal contestation is ruled outcan Chinese citizens mount political

thundersquall in sight Kolkata is sweltering at 36 degrees but with a RealFeel temperature of about 50 degrees But the citizenry’s discomfort is nothing compared to the discomfort felt by the West Bengal BJP They had to smile politely through gritted teeth and applaud as their bête noire Mamata Banerjee and their hero Narendra Modi put on a grand show of public bonhomie and broke bread privately together “Dal se bada desh hai (The country is bigger than parties)” said Modi generously “Kaam pyaar mobabbat se hota hain badnaami se nahin” (Work happens through love and affection not mudslinging)” said Mamata West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee with PM Narendra Modi in Kolkata on Saturday PTI Forget the Lok Sabha elections We have come a long way from the sturm and drang of even December 2014 when Mamata thundered “The situation in India is like Emergency now… I dare Narendra Modi and Amit Shah to arrest me This is an open challenge” And the BJP cadre chanted “Gali gali shor hain Mamata Banerjee chor hain” The Saradha investigation had embroiled Mamata’s trusted lieutenant Madan Mitra The party was distancing itself from former railway minister Mukul Roy And at Amit Shah’s rally in Kolkata the crowd was sure it was only a matter of time when the third M would fall – Mamata herself What a difference one municipal election and a few stalled bills can make Basking in the afterglow of that victory it is clear that now is Didi’s summer of content made even more glorious by the sun of Modi-ji The signs of thaw were already on the wall much like the graffiti for the just-concluded elections in Kolkata Trinamool’s Derek O’Brien has promised his party’s support in the Rajya Sabha ball by ball issue by issue Shoaib Daniyal in Scroll listed four signs that Didi and the erstwhile “Danga Babu” (Mr Riot) were burying the hatchet at least temporarily The Saradha investigation seems to have gone on simmer instead of full-boil It looks like Mukul Roy will escape its clutches The BJP is not harping on the bomb blasts of Burdwan The municipal elections did not happen under an enormous deployment of central forces And Trinamool lent its support to the land boundary bill it had opposed under UPA rule as well as the coal and mines and minerals bill and has given in principle its support to the GST bill Modi desperately wants to pass In politics there are no permanent friends and no permanent enemies But Mamata’s rapprochement raises eyebrows because when she sparred with the BJP she took no prisoners Haridas Pal (useless person) Danga babu gadha (donkey) were just some of the names she had hurled at Narendra Modi When Tripura’s Marxist chief minister met Modi Mamata whose party had boycotted the swearing in of the NDA regime had mocked them as “Boro bhai chhoto bhai (big brother little brother”) Now Big Brother and Big Sister are breaking bread together as if Bhratri-Dwitiya or bhai phonta has come early to Bengal It’s win-win for the two Except there is a third player too – the state BJP But West Bengal’s Assembly elections are not till 2016 Modi needs Mamata’s votes in the Rajya Sabha right now He’s realized that while a fire-breathing Amit Shah can rally the state unit it’s proven quite counterproductive to his ability to pass bills at the national level Shah after promising to be in Bengal every month gave the entire municipal elections a miss And Mamata after conclusively re-establishing her supremacy in Bengal politics in the municipal elections feels more secure to negotiate with Modi from a position of strength without worrying about the state unit nipping at her heels And if she can get a special package for Bengal out of it all she can claim this is all for the good of Bengal The state BJP cried foul after the elections and staged a bandh protesting unfair practices but all their protestations were undone by the chummy photo-ops of Modi and Mamata over the past weekend As The Times of India reported Mamata “overshadowed BJP leaders – Siddhartha Nath Singh Rahul Sinha Samik Bhattacharya and Ritesh Tiwari – who had gone to the airport to welcome Modi” When singer Babul Supriyo pulled off a surprise victory in the Lok Sabha elections Modi rewarded him with a place in his ministry It was a sign that the BJP was going to go all guns blazing in Bengal The state BJP was excited to build on its impressive vote share gain Modi had outlined the party’s strategy – development Saradha and minority appeasement “Mamata is talking about the Bengal model” party candidate Chandan Mitra said “For us that is deindustrialization corruption and gang rape” And he predicted that “as Saradha unravels it will take Mamata with it” The state unit of the BJP historically an also-ran in Bengal was abuzz with activity and energy as party officials excitedly shared stories about people joining in droves Even Muslims they insisted They were ready to step into the main opposition space The municipal elections blanketed the city with their posters and processions while the old warhorses of the CPM and Congress often hired a solitary three-wheeler to roam around neighbourhoods with a hired hand reading out a message All that energy and expense amounted to little gains for the BJP when the results came out Now the only thing Narendra Modi promised the chastened state unit of the BJP was Mamata’s one-time favourite Mukul Roy who had heaped praise on the PM would not be inducted into the BJP That would have hit hard at the state unit’s credibility because Mukul Roy had been one of their prime Saradha targets Saradha is still the Damocles sword But for Modi it is more advantageous right now to keep it dangling rather than bring it down on Didi The CPM is going to town saying “I told you so” Even before the 2015 Lok Sabha elections Sitaram Yechury had told a roadside rally in Kolkata that the war of words between Mamata and Modi was just “noorakusti” or shadow-boxing He reminded the audience Mamata visited Modi with a bouquet in 2002 and the BJP knows it can do “saudagiri” with Trinamool Watch and wait he said – “chunav ke baad bhai bhai” (They will be brothers after the elections) As Modi offered up puja at the Kali temple in Dakshineshwar the state unit of his own party would not be misplaced in thinking that they were the sacrificial lamb in the rapprochement between Modi and Mamata In the Kolkata summer they were the ones left out in the cold UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – A UN-blacklisted North Korean shipping firm has renamed most of its vessels in a bid to
