Call for retailers to protect staff against violence

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Increasing numbers of staff in the retail sector are victims of violence,according to a recent survey by the British Retail Consortium. The eighth annual Retail Crime Survey shows that five employees in every1,000 were victims of violence in 2000 compared with four per 1,000 in 1999. The main cause of physical violence was theft by customers, which accountedfor 75 per cent of cases in 2000, compared with 53 per cent in 1999, and verbalabuse has also increased over the same period. Bruce Robertson, head of HR for Pret à Manger, thinks the retail sectorshould adopt a zero-tolerance attitude to reverse the trend. “Everyemployer has a moral duty to protect the people who work for them. Stores indifficult areas may need a security guard. This should be seen not as a costbut as a necessity.” Ray Baker, sustainable development controller for DIY chain B&Q, saideffective training and good working practices help minimise risks to staff. The survey reveals that the number of staff being threatened with violencefell from 18 per 1000 staff in 1999 to 14 per 1,000. The findings are based on a postal survey, which drew responses fromcompanies trading through 17,164 outlets in the UK. Related posts:No related photos.

Review of the accomplishments of midlatitude Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) HF radars

first_imgThe Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) is a network of high-frequency (HF) radars located in the high- and mid-latitude regions of both hemispheres that is operated under international cooperation. The network was originally designed for monitoring the dynamics of the ionosphere and upper atmosphere in the high-latitude regions. However, over the last approximately 15 years, SuperDARN has expanded into the mid-latitude regions. With radar coverage that now extends continuously from auroral to sub-auroral and mid-latitudes, a wide variety of new scientific findings have been obtained. In this paper, the background of mid-latitude SuperDARN is presented at first. Then, the accomplishments made with mid-latitude SuperDARN radars are reviewed in five specified scientific and technical areas: convection, ionospheric irregularities, HF propagation analysis, ion-neutral interactions, and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves. Finally, the present status of mid-latitude SuperDARN is updated and directions for future research are discussed.last_img read more

Leaders join forces with Romans

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Leaders join forces with Romans previous nextAgencies & PeopleLeaders join forces with RomansLeaders and Romans merge to become one of the country’s biggest property services providers.The Negotiator24th March 20160774 Views Leading letting agents Romans and Leaders have merged to create one of the largest property services providers in the UK, with more than 40,000 properties under management.The groups, which have branches in London and across the South East, East Anglia, the Midlands and the North West, have joined forces in an attempt to capitalise on the growing private rental sector.The new collaboration between Leaders, which has 118 branches, and Romans, which has 27 branches, to form Property Services Holdings, will lead to combined revenues of around £100 million.The agents are being merged by Bowmark Capital, the private equity firm, which backed the management buyouts of Leaders in 2010 and Romans in 2013.Mark Salter, a Partner at Bowmark Capital, commented, “Leaders and Romans are outstanding businesses in their own right, and both have delivered impressive profit growth under Bowmark’s ownership.“Bringing them together creates a leading lettings-focused property services group that is greater than the sum of the parts, and is perfectly positioned to capitalise on the positive market conditions.”ICG has provided a substantial senior debt facility to support the merger of the two brands, which will continue to operate autonomously, and has committed a further £35 million to enable the new group to continue its buy-and-build strategy.Paul Weller (left), Chief executive of Leaders, said, “This is an exciting next step in the Leaders story since forming our successful partnership with Bowmark in 2010. We are looking forward to sharing expertise with Romans to take fullest advantage of the expected growth in residential sales and lettings in the UK.”Romans Chief Executive Peter Coles (right) added, “With Bowmark’s backing, Romans has continued to expand across the South East. The merger with Leaders gives us access to a national platform and deep buy-and-build expertise, creating new opportunities for both businesses as we enter the next phase of growth.”merger property service providers Leaders Romans Romans and Leaders merge March 24, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Preserving Pieces of Ocean City in Pictures

first_imgArriving late one night from the West Coast Scott awoke the next morning to heartache. He realized that the old Ocean City, the one from his dreams, was slowly fading from his memory. The house next door was literally being eaten alive by a backhoe as the sun came up over the ocean.  That day he took on a personal mission: to photograph these old classics.In the beginning he would quickly snap a shot and move on for fear that the owner may pop out and wonder what exactly he was doing. Now, due to the collection of photos he has amassed on his Instagram Site: classicocnj , he can quickly justify his purpose.  Most homeowners are honored to be featured by Scott.  Over the years he has honed his editing skills, painstakingly removing power lines and parking meters from each shot. He creates exterior home portraits owners would proudly frame and hang above their fireplace should they be lucky enough to catch Scott’s eye.Scott, a technology consultant, is all for progress. But preserving these Ocean City gems gives lovers of the island special memories to hold on to.  Ocean City is a town steeped in family tradition, passing houses down, reminiscing about the boarding house where you once summered or the house with the breezy front porch where you first laid eyes on your girl. Sometimes you even may bike ride by to see if the old place you always swore would buy when you grew up is still standing.  Time flies, things change, and hopefully these photos will allow all our memories of Ocean City continue.  Scott’s photos were recently featured on social media by Coastal Living & he has been generous enough to share them with us.  Enjoy!To Sea More of Scott’s classic home photos like SeamorewithMaureen on Facebook or follow seamorerealestate on Instagram.last_img read more

Millions in Aid Could Ride on Your Assembly Votes Tuesday

Bachelor’s Degree, The College of New Jersey, Special Education Degree, Rutgers University Church membership: Ordained Deacon at Macedonia Baptist Church, Cape MayFamily: Wife, Anna, and daughters Katya, 18, and Viktoria, 14 Lower Township Mayor Erik Simonsen, left, and Ocean City Councilman Antwan McClellan are the Republican Assembly candidates in the First Legislative District. By DONALD WITTKOWSKIAntwan McClellan and Erik Simonsen, the Republican Assembly candidates in the First Legislative District, are already intimately familiar with the critical issues faced by the beach and bayside towns at the Jersey Shore.If elected to the Assembly on Tuesday, they are promising to use the experience they have gained while serving in local government at the shore to help coastal communities secure more funding, improve their infrastructure and boost tourism.McClellan, an Ocean City councilman, and Simonsen, the mayor of Lower Township, said, as assemblyman, they will push for Cape May County and Cumberland County to get their fair share of state and federal funds for bridge, road and tourism projects.“The bridges and the beaches are the lifeblood of our shore towns, especially both in Sea Isle and Ocean City, and we have to do what we can to protect that,” McClellan said.They want to use Ocean City’s ambitious capital improvement program – the largest in the city’s history – as an example of how to properly upgrade the roads, bridges and beaches throughout the First Legislative District, and even other parts of the state. “That’s one of the things that we’ve done as a Council, as a mayor and as an administration, we’ve been able to be innovative,” McClellan said. “So, we see problems and we’ve been able to get out in front of them and fix them early, as opposed to waiting until they’re a very poor or bad situation and then we’re out there begging and pleading for help from somebody else.”“So we’ve been very forthcoming with that, and I think that’s a great opportunity that we can take and spread through Trenton to help the rest of Cape May County and parts of Cumberland County,” McClellan said.McClellan explained that Ocean City has been able to save tax dollars by working in partnership with the utility companies for road and drainage projects.“Since 2012, when a new administration came in and I’ve been on Council with the other six members, we’ve done more roads and drainage than anybody else in the history of Ocean City,” he said. “We’ve had an opportunity to work with all of the utility companies and the gas companies coming in and the water company to do any type of work we do. We piggyback on what they’re doing to fix our roads and pave them.”In recent years, Ocean City has also worked with the county, state and federal governments for the new Route 52 Causeway, the construction of the Ocean City-Longport Bridge and the rehabilitation of the 34th Street Bridge.“So transportation-wise, I think we’re good,” McClellan said of Ocean City. “But there are some things we can do better as far as to try to bring people in.”Locally, McClellan praised Ocean City for its jitney service that links the southern end of town with the downtown shops, restaurants, Boardwalk and beaches.However, at the state level, Simonsen believes Cape May County is shortchanged in the amount of money it receives from New Jersey’s Transportation Trust Fund, which finances road, bridge and mass transit projects.He also wants Cape May County to get more money back from the state for the tourism tax revenue generated by the county. Cape May County sends close to $550 million in tourism tax revenue annually to the state, but gets only $1 million in return.“We both feel that we’re not getting our fair share,” Simonsen said. “Of all the tourism dollars we send up to Trenton, we get very little back.”Simonsen and McClellan are running with Senate candidate Michael Testa, a Vineland attorney, on the Republican ticket. They were part of a strategy session with former Congressman Frank LoBiondo, a fellow Republican, to discuss key issues in the First Legislative District. The district’s transportation needs were part of their discussion.“The major thing that former Congressman LoBiondo is trying to get across is that we have to continue to bring attention to the needs of South Jersey, to Legislative District One,” McClellan said. “If they’re not being consistently talked about or brought up by our legislators, then it’s just not going to happen.”Assembly candidate Antwan McClellan speaks during a meeting with local supporters in Ocean City.The two Assembly candidates are pushing for the extension of the Route 55 corridor from Cumberland County to Cape May County to expand the region’s transportation network. The highway’s proposed extension has been discussed for years, but has run into environmental hurdles.Route 55, if extended, would link the industrial hubs of both counties and serve as a catalyst for jobs and economic development, they said. One area that could benefit is the Cape May County Airport and the “tech village” that is being developed there to attract new companies, Simonsen said.“As we start to look at growing our businesses, one of the things you need for businesses to grow is obviously a major artery,” Simonsen said of Route 55. “Whether it’s manufacturing goods, whether it’s things for sale, you need access to and from where you’re going to produce those goods. And right now, we just don’t have it.”Simonsen noted that Lower Township and other communities are creating “opportunity zones” to stimulate jobs and attract new industry. Better highway access, including Route 55’s extension, is critical for developing those zones, he explained.Both candidates also believe that Route 55’s extension would create a new evacuation route during severe coastal storms. They cited studies that have ranked the current evacuation routes from the shore as the sixth worst in the country. That alone is reason enough for Route 55’s extension, they said.“So we all know it needs to be done, but we just want to make sure that the people are fighting to try to get it done,” McClellan said.McClellan and Simonsen also believe that Route 55’s extension would serve as a gateway for more tourism to Cape May and Cumberland counties.Both McClellan and Simonsen see opportunities, as assemblyman, to work with the Chambers of Commerce in the First Legislative District to promote tourism. McClellan cited Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian and Sea Isle City Mayor Leonard Desiderio as examples of how local elected officials can partner with the Chambers of Commerce on tourism initiatives.“Fortunately, Mayor Desiderio does that and Mayor Gillian also does that, and our Chambers of Commerce work together very well along with the county Chamber of Commerce,” he said. “We need to continue to do that and to think of more innovative ways to bring people in from different states and other countries.”Assembly candidate Erik Simonsen addresses a Republican rally outside the Historic Cape May County Court House.In Cape May County, the beaches are the heart of the tourism industry and must be protected, McClellan and Simonsen stressed.“Why do people come here? It’s for the beaches and the boardwalks,” Simonsen said. “You have to make sure that your beaches are maintained. We do get a lot of erosion here. We have to make sure our boardwalks are maintained.”Simonsen was critical of Gov. Phil Murphy’s recent decision not to use millions of dollars in state funding to repair damage to Wildwood’s Boardwalk.“Getting millions of dollars cut from our boardwalks, like we did in Wildwood, does not help,” he said of efforts to promote tourism at the shore.Ocean City, Sea Isle and Strathmere will soon undergo a $31.5 million beach replenishment project to add 2.4 million cubic yards of fresh sand to the storm-damaged shoreline.According to initial figures, Ocean City will receive 800,000 cubic yards of sand to replenish the beaches in the north end of town from Seaview Road to 13th Street. Another 455,000 cubic yards of sand will help restore the beaches in the southern end from 49th to 59th streets.The project is scheduled to get underway this fall and be completed in time for the 2020 summer tourism season.McClellan and Simonsen said the knowledge they have gained from the beach replenishment projects in Ocean City and Lower Township would help them in the Assembly to focus on coastal protection.“We need to continue to evaluate everything every year,” Simonsen said. “I know from experience in Lower Township, because we have the bayside and the seashore side, we have dune replenishment. They’re actually building a berm on the ocean side from Lower Township up to North Wildwood to help with another storm such as Superstorm Sandy.”McClellan and Simonsen say beach replenishment is critical for the shore’s tourism market.Bayside communities in both Cape May County and Cumberland County should not be overlooked for shore protection projects, Simonsen added.“Especially with a town like Ocean City, Sea Isle and obviously where I’m at, and even when you go up in Cumberland County, a lot of times the bayside communities get forgotten about by our legislators,” he said. “There’s a lot of erosion on the bayside, and whether it’s fishing, water sports, etc., they’re valuable also and sometimes that gets lost.”“A lot of our towns here in Cape May County have both an ocean side and a bayside. A lot of times the bayside gets lost in the shuffle,” Simonsen continued. “We need to make sure we maintain our bayside as much as anything because it’s valuable, not only as property, but it’s also a valuable natural resource. People go there to the beach on the bayside for fishing and water sports.”McClellan pointed out that Ocean City has undertaken a major local dredging program to keep the bayfront lagoons and channels clear of mud and sediment. Overall, it is a five-year dredging plan costing $20 million.“We were able to come to an agreement with the administration and state DEP on a tip-to-tip dredging program that’s allowing us to dredge our back bays and find spots for the dredge materials,” McClellan said of the Council members. “It also allows us to do planning and maintenance on an annual basis.”In October, Ocean City’s Council introduced a bond ordinance that includes $3 million in funding for beach replenishment. The funding package also calls for the installation of a new geotube, essentially a large, synthetic sock filled with sand, to help protect an area of the dunes that is vulnerable to erosion.“We just recently approved a new geotube to be installed on our beaches along with the beach replenishment program. So we’ve been consistent with everything here for our beach replenishment program in this city,” McClellan said. “We’re doing it tip to tip and we’re going to continue to do that to protect the homes on the beach, protect our beaches and protect our Boardwalk.”“I know they’ve been working with the DEP in Lower Township to also do the same thing. So Erik and I are on the forefront of that, and we want to make sure we continue that throughout our shore district here and to work with our friends in the federal government,” McClellan added. Bios:Assembly Candidate: Antwan McClellanAge: 45Political Experience: Ocean City Councilman in Ward 2 for seven years; Former School Board member, three yearsHometown: Ocean CityOccupation: Public Information Officer and Confidential Aide to Cape May County Sheriff Bob NolanOrganizations and Activities: Manager/Coach Field of Dreams Baseball, three years; Coach Girls Junior High School Basketball, nine years, Member Cape May County NAACP, Volunteer Ocean City Historical MuseumEducation: Ocean City High School graduate in Class of 1993; Virginia State University; Old Dominion UniversityChurch membership: Shiloh Baptist Church, Ocean CityFamily: Engaged to Angela Masonlast_img read more

“Cold Play” Piano Concert Coming to O.C.

first_imgPianist Shawn Quigley performs in December with student, Brooke Fearnhead, during a free holiday performance in downtown Ocean City. By MADDY VITALEPiano teacher Shawn Quigley and a dozen of his students will entertain shoppers in downtown Ocean City on Sunday.But the music won’t be reminiscent of the nostalgic holiday tunes performed over Christmas at the corner of Eighth Street and Asbury Avenue by the young talents trained by the Seaville resident.In fact, music chosen for the free 3 p.m. piano concert will be more contemporary — a lot more.For those who have heard of the alternative rock band Coldplay, get ready to hear some of their top ballads.Quigley’s students will be performing their take with their “Cold Play” concert. The audience will hear the band’s hits “Yellow,” “Clocks,” “Paradise,” and Viva la Vida,” among others.Here is a song the students will perform by Coldplay.And to top it off, the students will be on piano duos for each song, transforming the avenue into a mini-concert venue.Middle and high school age students will play two upright pianos simultaneously.“We want to play some different music for the community,” Quigley said. “With the COVID-19 pandemic, we can’t really be inside performing, so this gives the kids an outlet as well as benefits the public. People can come out and watch us play.”And he is hoping for some good weather. “It is supposed to be in the 50s and no rain,” Quigley said.Back in January, Quigley’s students performed their winter concert “Cold Play” outside at his home. Like Sunday’s event, they played mostly Coldplay songs.“Performing gives kids an outlet, a focus. We are happy to play for people outside and love coming to Ocean City to perform,” Quigley noted. “For the kids, it really is a form of community service that they love.”Students in Shawn Quigley’s piano classes during their Jan. 9 concert.

In Europe, nationalism rising

first_imgOver the past 75 years, many Western nations moved steadily toward cooperation and interconnectedness, as their shared economic and political interests converged during this period called globalization. But the political winds are shifting, and there are signs of a new age of populism and nationalism emerging in Europe, a development that eventually could undermine post-war security and unity.Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election in part by promising to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C., of political elites and to “Make America Great Again,” a broad-brush populist slogan that supported a more isolationist, protectionist, “America First” posture toward the wider world. His campaign rhetoric criticizing some Muslims and Mexicans and his recent efforts to limit immigration and trade have left many analysts wondering whether his presidency could effectively move the country toward a period of ethno-nationalism.Trump’s surprise election has proved a political windfall and an inspirational template to far-right candidates in Europe, as some countries prepare for major elections. These include the Netherlands (March), France (April and May), and Germany (September). These rightist groups predate Trump politically and tie themselves more tightly to nationalism, but they are also happy to ride on the coattails of his victory.Marine Le Pen, the National Front party leader running for president of France, embraces antiglobalization and anti-immigration policies. Both Le Pen and her father, Jean-Marie, the former party leader, lavishly cheered Trump’s election on Twitter, while other European nationalist party figures in the Netherlands, Hungary, and Greece touted his win as a positive sign of things to come. She has promised to “take back” France by withdrawing from the European Union (EU), a move that Trump has applauded, as he did when Britain voted last year to leave that body, rocking the EU to its core. Lately, Le Pen has been rising in the polls as her mainstream electoral opponents have faltered.Other figures on Europe’s far right, including Geert Wilders, founder of the Dutch Party for Freedom, and Nigel Farage, former leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, which spearheaded Britain’s break with the EU, have met with and supported Trump. Farage dined with Trump last week in Washington, appeared at Trump’s inauguration, and also made several appearances with him during the campaign. Matteo Salvini, leader of Italy’s Northern League, has reportedly offered to help Trump expand his support in Europe.Indeed, some in the Trump administration have embraced the value of a far-right coalition between the United States and Europe. Leading the way is Trump’s chief White House strategist, Stephen Bannon M.B.A. ’85 , the former chairman of Breitbart Media, a pro-Trump online news outlet. Breitbart has been something of a safe harbor for white nationalists, Neo-Nazis, and other digitally savvy right-wing fringe groups. It’s an assertion Bannon appears to agree with, once referring to Breitbart as the “home of the alt-right.” Shortly after the election, Breitbart announced it would expand to France and Germany to help bring Trumpism to audiences there. During a rare public appearance last week, Bannon, widely-seen as Trump’s ideological compass, said their victory made clear that there is a political “movement” afoot, one in which the administration’s “economic nationalist agenda” will help galvanize the Republican Party, and the nation, into “a new political order.” A new salienceAlthough the words populism and ethno-nationalism are often used interchangeably, they actually are distinctly different.“Populism is a way of making political claims that oppose ostensibly ‘corrupt elites’ with ‘the virtuous people,’” said Bart Bonikowski, a Harvard associate professor of sociology who studies populist and nationalist movements.The left often labels big business and banking executives as elites, while the right typically targets the state itself and those who keep it running, like civil servants, bureaucrats, and elected officials, along with academics and other intellectuals, “whereas ethno-nationalism is … a definition of the nation that excludes various ethnic, religious, and racial out-groups,” he said.Because populism is less an ideology than a form of political discourse, it is often attached to a variety of political ideologies, including nationalism.“It’s basically a strategy for mobilizing political support for whatever politicians’ objectives might be,” said Bonikowski. “It so happens that in Europe and the United States and elsewhere … populism attached to ethno-nationalism has gained traction. But that doesn’t mean the two things are the same or that they only occur with one another.”Nationalism can be ethnocentric or primarily civic in focus. Some strains are more inclusive than others, often based on political principles and respect for institutions that rest on subjective identification with a nation. Ethnic-driven nationalism is often about a shared ancestry, religion, and language and a common dissent, said Bonikowski, a resident faculty member at the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies (CES).Despite some public perceptions, populism and ethno-nationalism have not suddenly surged in the United States and Europe since Trump’s ascendancy. Many European nationalist parties have been around for decades, with varying levels of success. In 2015, Hungary and Poland installed hard right, antiglobalization governments.“There’s a good portion of the population that does … have a particular understanding of what America is: a white, Christian America,” says Bart Bonikowski. File photo by Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff Photographer“I think what’s changed is the salience of these ideas given the … contextual factors: economic crises, persistent inequality stemming out of neoliberalism, demographic change, anxieties associated with terrorism, along with political developments like obstructionism in Washington, [and the] perceived corruption or non-representativeness of the EU governance system,” said Bonikowski. “All of these things have generated some level of anxiety among particularly white, native-born populations and a perceived status loss at the group level among these folks, which then makes both nationalist and populist claims — and, especially, nationalist-populist claims — more resonant and more salient than they had been in the past.”Indeed, Trump first found his political footing in 2011 after he pushed an unfounded, racially tinged accusation popular on the far right that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya and thus was not a legitimately elected president. Trump appeared to stoke divisiveness among his predominantly white supporters and was slow to reject endorsements by white nationalists, including the Ku Klux Klan, critics contended.Yet Trump was backed by 63 million voters in the presidential election, and the vast majority were hardly extremists, but Americans with traditional values who wanted change.“There’s a good portion of the population that does … define the nation in ethno-cultural terms. They’re not all members of neo-Nazi groups, by any stretch of the imagination. They just have a particular understanding of what America is: a white, Christian America.”While well-organized fringe groups wishing to remake the country as a white, nationalist state have long existed on the periphery of American politics and society, the Trump campaign’s advancement of an agenda that sometimes aligns with theirs brought some extremist groups into the mainstream. “They’ve been allowed to be part of the conversation, which they hadn’t before, and they have, in Bannon, an advocate pretty close to power.”Europe emboldenedTrump’s election and Britain’s exit from the EU are “very encouraging” to nationalist groups across Europe, “because for the first time, there’s a shift away from international cooperation, sharing sovereignty, building international relations and organizations, to addressing the sovereign rights of specific countries,” said Grzegorz Ekiert, the Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Government and director of the CES.Both events represent the biggest victories for the populist-nationalist right in many years.“They demonstrated that what most people thought was impossible is actually possible,” said Bonikowski.Rarely have groups on the radical right advanced so far in recent decades.“They’ve certainly been present, and they have won seats in parliaments in national elections, but they have not been in control of governments, they have not been in control of presidencies, they have not made massive impacts on national policies until Brexit and Trump,” he said. “And so I think that certainly emboldens politicians on the far right across Europe, but also across the world. It also gives them some degree of increased legitimacy among their supporters.”Politicians on Europe’s radical right are now looking to Trump to see which tactics and messages work for him and then testing those in their home nations, adding to the sense that there’s a broader nationalist wave rippling around the world.There was enthusiasm in 2004 when the EU opened its doors to 10 additional countries, most from the former Eastern bloc. But it wasn’t long before some in these new member states began stoking an anti-EU, nationalist agenda.“In every country, you have always had people who didn’t like the European Union,” said Ekiert. “In every country, you had people who worried about traditional values, who worried about national sovereignty, who didn’t like the bureaucrats making some decisions, who didn’t like people in their country cooperating with the European Union. But they were lying low for years because, for them, the impetus of the EU enlargement and this liberal vision for the entire continent seemed invincible.”But the global economic crisis of 2008 and 2009 laid that notion to waste.“Now, the crisis for the first time showed that this is not an invincible project, that there is possibility, really, to fight against it. And this was the moment when you saw in many countries in Europe, both West and East, nationalistic, populist forces emerging,” Ekiert said.The reverberations of Trump’s rise to the presidency have been acutely felt in France, where global attention is now focused on a spring presidential election that has seismic implications for the future of the EU, particularly after the decision by British voters to leave provided its own momentum.The National Front’s Le Pen has made no secret of her support for Trump and his antiestablishment message. Although they do differ in some areas, Trump and Le Pen share several populist-nationalist impulses. Both are protectionists who want to tighten the borders, both oppose immigration and criticize Islam, and both seek to restore “law and order,” which many analysts take as an embrace of a more authoritarian society, said Nonna Mayer, a French political scientist, a leading authority on the National Front, and an emeritus director of research at CES.“For her, the victory of a populist leader like Trump is the proof that her ideas are going to win, can win,” she said. “She’s going to use Trump, she’s going to use it as an argument … not only for her own party members, but for the people with whom she wants to make alliances, to say, ‘Look, we are respectable, our ideas have won. They have elected a president of the United States.’ So in that sense, it’s good for her.”Nationalism in France has been on the rise since the 1980s, when the party’s founder, Le Pen’s father, Jean-Marie, won a seat in European Parliament in 1984. Since then, the National Front has tried to position itself against globalization and as the champion of those who seem themselves as the movement’s losers.Le Pen’s growing mainstream success owes much to the affirmative case the party makes to voters, Mayer contends. “At a time where most people don’t believe very much in the capacity of mainstream political parties to do something, they say, ‘Yes, we can. … You just need the guts to do it, and we can do it.’ In a way, they are selling a political dream, wherein all the other parties have failed.”Populist leaders, including Le Pen, tend to oversimplify issues, mislead and exaggerate and sometimes lie about problems and conditions, like the number of immigrants entering France, in order to justify easy solutions, added Mayer, echoing tactics that have proven useful to the Trump camp.Additionally, terrorist attacks in Paris, Nice, and elsewhere in Europe, as well as the flowing stream of refugees, particularly from Syria, offer useful pretexts for anti-immigration policies and regressive sentiments. “All of that justifies, legitimizes parties that say, ‘We must erect walls and then everything will be as it was before,’ she said. “They always sell a golden age of a society that never existed. But it’s also their strength.”“What the French have witnessed, especially since the attacks over the last two years, [has left many feeling] ‘we’re not at home anymore, and these people who are here in our country as guests are totally destroying our quality of life,’” said sociologist Michèle Lamont, the Robert I. Goldman Professor of European Studies.As with Trump, Le Pen’s constituents are often blue-collar voters who’ve seen their earning power decline and feel threatened by the growing diversity in France. They believe the new arrivals, particularly Muslim immigrants and refugees from the Middle East, are leapfrogging over them economically by “‘coming in and stealing our resources,’” said Lamont.“So, for me, the question is more a sense of social displacement and state pecking order, which is manifested both in how people interpret how much the state will distribute and access to material resources in France.”In the United States, where government largesse isn’t as central to daily life, nationalist sentiments among the white working class centers more on “the dynamics of recognition: how much place those various groups are given in social and cultural debates” about things like sexual orientation and public bathrooms, said Lamont. “That’s really viewed as totally out of proportion.”Trump’s election and Britain’s exit from the EU are “very encouraging” to nationalist groups across Europe, noted Grzegorz Ekiert, the Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Government and director of the CES. © 2016 David ElmesLook to the eastTrump’s reception in Eastern Europe has been more “mixed” than in Western Europe largely because of his seeming admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin and apparent comfort with Russian expansionist interests in a part of Europe that the old Soviet Union controlled for decades, said Ekiert.Still, populist-nationalism on the far right has blossomed in Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Croatia as resentment of the EU’s power brokers in Brussels has grown.“The paradox of this is that these were the most advanced countries in Eastern Europe. Poland, for the last 25 years, was considered to be an incredible success story,” said Ekiert. “So what this tells us is … this is not about the ‘losers of globalization.’ There are no losers of globalization in Poland. The Polish society benefited across the board from enlargement in quite incredible ways … so this is not about economic pain, this is not about marginalization, and so on. This is clearly about country” and cultural modernization.“The last 30 years was a period of very dramatic cultural change, and the traditional societies of Eastern Europe were not really ready to embrace that change, and we see the reaction to it now. It was too much, too soon,” said Ekiert.“It was much easier to get used to iPhones and good cars and all those other things that go with material modernization. But it was much more difficult to really make sense on the cultural level how far those societies” had evolved, he said. “So, the questions of what’s going to happen with religion, what’s going to happen with traditional families, what’s going to happen with traditional curricula in schools, how do we think about the history of our country” left many feeling unmoored.Powerful forces like the Polish Catholic Church have opposed the EU, viewing the increasingly empty churches in an increasingly secular Western Europe as an existential threat, Ekiert added.After decades of Soviet domination and little internal ethnic diversity, nationalist sentiments in Eastern Europe center mostly on notions of patriotism and national identity. It’s only in the last two decades that anti-immigration has emerged as a significant part of nationalist discourse, said Ekiert.An influx of immigrants and a later quota plan from the EU that refugees should be evenly distributed among member states set off a “hysterical” reaction across Eastern Europe. Countries normally at odds banded together and refused to comply, offering aggressive language that reinforced old prejudices and stoked violence against foreigners, as well as students and tourists in Poland and Hungary.What’s likely next Whatever happens in the elections in the Netherlands, France, and Germany, the broader “dangers” that the success of Europe’s far right parties pose are “just vast,” said Bonikowski. The biggest worry is the potential erosion of democratic laws, and shared norms and beliefs.“It really changes what’s acceptable, it changes geopolitical calculations, it creates all kinds of risks that have not been there previously. You don’t need every single country to be controlled by a nationalist-populist politician for us to be in some serious trouble,” he said. “It’s enough to have a couple, and especially the powerful ones.”A win by Le Pen would “create chaos” because she has promised to take France out of the EU, whose three strong stool legs have been Britain (leaving), France (in question), and Germany. “If she wins, we’re all in trouble,” added Ekiert.But even if she loses, that is not the end of the story. Other events threaten to further destabilize the EU.“Europe is at a critical point in this game today, and the trans-Atlantic relations between Europe and the U.S., and then the relations between Europe, Russia, China, and Turkey, are at the center of everything,” said Ekiert.The first and foremost danger is if Putin, under the pretext of protecting ethnic Russians living in the region, takes action in Estonia or the Baltic republics as a test of NATO’s commitment, and especially the U.S.’s willingness, to defend all of its members.Additionally, the war in Ukraine, the Syrian civil war, unrest in North Africa, and Turkey’s rapid move away from Europe could prompt Turkish President Recep Erdogan to release a million Syrian refugees in Turkey into Europe and put the EU on thin ice.“That kind of ‘burning neighborhood’ is a very significant destabilizing factor,” said Ekiert. “If the European Union were as strong as was the case several years ago, we would probably see much more aggressive action, with a lot of economic aid, to stabilize those countries. But now the European Union is in survival mode and not ready for any adventures outside the EU borders.”In addition to the geopolitical crises, a likely shift in trans-Atlantic relations under the Trump administration, Europe’s lingering economic and banking woes, questions about fundamental European institutions — including the entire EU project itself ???? are swirling about just as the radical right political parties are rising in nearly every country, said Ekiert.“It looks like a perfect storm in all possible dimensions.”last_img read more

Hi-Wire Brewing Lager Should Go Platinum

first_imgAnd the Winner Is…Budweiser Select?Budweiser Select won the gold for American style Lager at the most recent Great American Beer Festival. Miller High Life won the silver. Pabst Brewing Company won the bronze with their Special Export. I don’t even know what the hell their Special Export is (but I want to try it!).I’ve got nothing against Budweiser or Miller or Pabst. I drink all of those beers. But are they medal winners at this country’s quintessential beer competition? Are these grocery store standards still topping the charts when craft breweries are now making solid representations of lagers?Maybe. Maybe Budweiser’s got the lager dialed down so damned good, the little guy doesn’t stand a chance in that category. Or maybe gold medals don’t mean much, or maybe nobody else bothered to enter their lagers in the GABF. I don’t know. What I do know, is there are a number of great craft lagers out there for you to try, even if they don’t have gold medals swinging from their necks. Lagunitas and Bell’s both make a tasty lager (no, “tasty lager” isn’t an oxymoron). Devils Backbone, out of Virginia, makes the Gold-Leaf Lager, which actually won the silver in the American Style Pilsener category at this year’s competition.I like the lager put out by Hi-Wire Brewing, a new brewery out of Asheville. It’s unfiltered, light-hopped, light-bodied, light everything except for taste. This is a solid lager, people, straight down the style standards, and it’s become my go-to easy-drinking beer. If Budweiser Select is the gold-medal winner for Lagers, then this puppy should go platinum.Follow Graham Averill’s adventures in drinking and Dad-hood at daddy-drinks.comlast_img read more

Visitors who come to Floyd before the weekend – by noon Thursday through noon Friday, can stop by the Floyd Visitor Center to pick up their Crush Friday in Floyd passport that offers them special deals and activities. Specials and itineraries will be posted on VisitFloydVA.com website and will change quarterly throughout the year. You have to get to Floyd early enough to be a Crush Friday visitor!Visitors who use their passport are also eligible for Crush Friday in Floyd getaway packages valued at over $500 given away in early 2019 and good through that year.What can folks do in Floyd Virginia? Get outside on the mountaintop– Bike, Hike, Float Floyd; Sip the Spirits (beer, wine, shine) at our wineries, new brewery, distillery and many restaurants; and Move to the Music at numerous venues and festivals Thursday through Sundays.

And VA Tourism Corporation continues to provide incredible support to communities like ours to help us share about our great offerings”.American workers left 662 million vacation days on the table last year. Of these workers, the millennial sub-set is the most likely to want to be seen as work martyrs. In an effort to be seen as valuable to the company a work martyr is the most likely to forego taking vacation days. The VTC Crush Friday Program is designed to encourage the millennial work martyr to give vacation a try. VTC and its industry partners aim to change that mindset and show the benefit that even one day of vacation can have. Virginia and Floyd Tourism offer a call to millennials to take a well-deserved Friday and crush it in Floyd, Virginia.For more information about Crush Friday in Floyd, go to www.VisitFloydVA.com or contact [email protected] or 540-239-8509last_img read more

League of Women voters still conducting its judicial survey

first_img July 15, 2001 Regular News League of Women voters still conducting its judicial survey Florida judges still have time to participate in a confidential survey that will be used to help educate voters about the value of an independent judiciary and the important balance between the three branches of government. Mimi Jones of the Tallahassee League of Women Voters said the organization has solved a computer glitch which may have prevented some judges from completing the online survey asking about the day-to-day realities of the threat to judicial independence. Every state judge should have received a letter inviting participation in the survey, and the league has sent out another round of letters encouraging those who have yet to respond, or had a problem in responding, to do so now. “The initial password caused a problem,” Jones said. “We have removed the password, and now all the judges have to do is log on. Because every judge uses the same logon, anonymity is still assured.” Questions on the survey include: • During recent judicial elections in Florida, have incidents arisen regarding inappropriate negative or misleading campaign advertising? • Are you ever conscious of the possible ramifications of making an unpopular court ruling? • Has this affected your decisions? Do you believe this has influenced the decisions of other judges? • Are you aware of any misleading or unfair criticism of individual decisions or personal attacks on judges in your circuit? • Should the legislature remove the budget authority of the chief justice and transfer it to the executive branch? • Should the legislature be allowed to supersede judicial rulemaking, as some legislators have proposed? • What issues or concerns have arisen in your circuit regarding judicial appointments? The Tallahassee League of Women Voters received a $3,000 grant from the Open Society Institute to conduct the survey. The goal of the survey is not only to publish the results, expected by the end of September, and encourage media coverage of the findings, but also to continue to educate voters about the issues at election time. “We are getting some wonderful, interesting, varied returns,” Jones said. Judges who have questions about the survey or are encountering problems in accessing the survey may call Jones at (850) 942-7199.

Chart of the Week: DC overtakes DB in top seven pension markets

first_imgDB and DC assets (%)Chart MakerIn the Netherlands, the proportion of DC assets remained at 6%, the same as in the 2017 report. DC assets in the UK decreased from 19% to 18% last year, largely as a result of a recalculation by the country’s Office for National Statistics.Total assetsDC capital grew by 7.6% a year on average over the past 20 years, while DB assets averaged just 3.2% a year.Combined pension assets of the world’s 22 largest markets dropped 3.3% to €35.6trn last year, the report said.Dutch assets fell from €1.42trn to €1.35trn, while the UK’s combined assets declined from €3.11trn to €2.53trn.Although Dutch pension assets as a proportion of GDP fell from 193.8% to 167%, this was still the highest ratio of the 22 surveyed countries.The UK saw its pension assets relative to GDP decrease from 121.3% to 101.7% last year, while Switzerland’s ratio was 126%.At €21.9trn, the US was the largest of the surveyed pension markets.Asset allocationThe study also showed that the Netherlands, the UK and Japan had an above-average allocation to bonds.Dutch and UK fixed income investments amounted to 54% and 53% of assets, respectively, while Japan’s bond allocation was 60%.Swiss pension funds had the highest exposure to alternatives, with 31%.Top seven markets’ averageasset allocation (%)Chart MakerCommenting the study results last year, Jacco Heemskerk, Willis Towers Watson’s head of investment in the Netherlands, argued that the conservative investment policy of Dutch pensions funds was eroding the purchasing power of their participants. Defined contribution (DC) pension funds have more assets than defined benefit (DB) funds across the world’s seven biggest pension markets, according to Willis Towers Watson’s Thinking Ahead Institute.The institute’s Global Pension Assets Study analysed data from 22 of the largest pension markets. The top seven – Australia, Canada, Japan, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the UK and the US – accounted for 91% of assets covered by the report.Across those seven countries, DC assets were estimated to be “slightly over 50%” of total pension assets, the Thinking Ahead Institute reported – although this was primarily as a result of the dominance of DC in the US, the world’s biggest pension market by assets.Australia and the US were predominantly DC markets, but Japan and Canada were “showing an increasing allocation towards DC”, the institute said.last_img read more

We’re getting right balance – Dyche

first_img “We take that side of things seriously, the development of players no matter what their age is, and if they choose to run with our ideas and our thinking, it’s been pretty positive so far the outcome that they’ve got, which of course affects the team in a positive manner. “We’re looking to work with all the players, no matter what age. We want them to improve, we want them to engage and be aligned with what we do. “It’s important as a team we are totally aligned on the outcome, and that is delivering good performances in order to get wins.” The partnership between strikers Vokes and Ings was key to Burnley’s promotion last season, the pair netting 41 league goals between them. Ings will be looking to pick up where he left off on Monday but Vokes must wait until later in the season for his chance after rupturing a cruciate ligament in March. “He’s still a while away yet but he’s doing really, really well,” Dyche said. “There’s no timescale – we wouldn’t do that to a player with that type of injury. He’s been out on the grass, very light training. Not with us, with the physios, but he’s going well and he’s in good spirits. “He’s a great character. He’s someone who’s done fantastically well and will do again.” Burnley boss Sean Dyche hopes he has the right balance in his squad to succeed in the Barclays Premier League. With a small budget, Dyche’s options are limited anyway, but the former Watford boss is also determined to keep the squad dynamic that proved so important last season. Midfielders Matt Taylor and Steven Reid have added a lot of top-flight experience, while strikers Lukas Jutkiewicz and Marvin Sordell, winger Michael Kightly and goalkeeper Matt Gilks have also come in. Dyche said: “We want to find a balanced group in Burnley’s world, both financially and what we think is right for the group and how we operate. I think we’ve done that so far and we are looking to add further. “Obviously the two main lads with experience we’ve brought in are Steven Reid and Matty Taylor. “They’re still active, they’ve made it clear they are by getting games under their belt in recent seasons, but they also have that real depth of Premier League knowledge about going around the country and playing at all the Premier League stadiums and I think that’s important because it gives that balance to the group.” Jutkiewicz, 25, is already on his ninth professional club having joined the Clarets from Middlesbrough last month. He impressed on loan at Bolton last term and was Burnley’s star turn in pre-season, scoring six goals in as many games. “He’s open-minded, big Juke, and we like that,” Dyche said. “(Sam) Vokes proved last year how open-minded he was and (Danny) Ings, the way we work and the way we operate. The Clarets play their first match back in the top flight on Monday when Chelsea visit Turf Moor. Dyche has so far resisted the temptation to make wholesale changes to the squad that finished second in the Championship, adding only six players to what was already a small group.

Cricket News Not easy to face Jasprit Bumrah in death overs: Aaron Finch

first_img“I think on that wicket, it got lower and slower. When Bumrah has an over up his sleeve, it’s gonna be hard,” Finch admitted. Bumrah’s spell of 3/16 included 18 dot balls and he took 50 wickets in the process, becoming only the second bowler after Ravichandran Ashwin to achieve the feat but Australia got over the line on the last ball.This was the first time India had lost two consecutive T20Is since 2016 but skipper Virat Kohli was not too flustered about the loss, stating that the batting was not up to the mark on this wicket. “In the first innings, we were not up to scratch. The wicket was decent enough till the 15th over. We didn’t bat really well. A low scoring game is always on the cards in T20 cricket,” Kohli said.Kohli, who became the first player to hit 500 runs in Twenty20 Internationals against Australia, heaped praise on Bumrah and the bowlers. The right-hander also praised KL Rahul’s knock on his comeback and said the team wanted to give Rahul game time before the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. “We want to give Rahul and Rishab more game-time. Rahul played a really good knock and we had a good partnership. Had we gone on, we could have got 150, which would have been a match-winning score on this pitch,” Kohli said.India take on Australia in the second and final Twenty20 International in Bengaluru on February 27.

KL Rahul slammed 50 but Nathan Coulter-Nile picked up 3/26 as India managed just 46 runs in 10 overs to finish on 126/7. In response, Australia started badly but a brilliant stand of 84 between D’Arcy Short and Glenn Maxwell got Australia back in the game. Maxwell struck a brilliant 56 off 43 balls but once he fell, the game swung in India’s balance. Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson held their nerve and Australia won the clash by three wickets off the last ball to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series. Speaking after the end of the match, Australia skipper Aaron Finch lauded the efforts of Maxwell.“Maxwell played a hell of an innings on a difficult pitch. The run-outs did not help,” Finch said. Maxwell countered the spinners well, launching Yuzvendra Chahal for a four and a six to get going and also hammered debutant Mayank Markande over long on for his second six. The right-hander negotiated Krunal Pandya but once he fell for 56, Bumrah pounced on the opening and bowled brilliantly in the death overs. In the 19th over, Bumrah took two wickets and conceded just two runs to finish with 3/16.last_img read more

Bosnian watched Football Match at Goodison Park at the invitation of Everton

first_imgYoung BH citizen, Aldin Karabeg, managed to realize his dream and attend one match of the English Premier League after three months.This young man in July sent inquires to up to 92 clubs in England, with a simple question: “Why would I cheer for you?”Wanting to choose a club from Premier League, for which he would cheer in the future, Karabeg received answers to his letters and read answers from some of the world’s biggest clubs, such as Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal.Despite the fact that all the answers were really good, Aldin decided to choose Everton which, according to him, offered the best answer. Of course, the message from Muhamed Besic, BH football player that he sent to Aldin, contributed to all of this.However, that was not it for Aldin, who quickly attracted attention of English media, who followed his unusual little action. After he announced his decision, soon came the offer to turn his interesting story into a movie, which is why Aldin had the opportunity to fulfill his dream and attend the match Everton – Crystal Palace, which was played at the stadium Goodison Park.On that occasion, Aldin said to the media that he is really delighted with the atmosphere in the stadium and fan songs, and he cannot wait for the match to begin.“There is 40,000 people on the stands, and it’s roughly the population of the city where I live. It’s amazing to see all these people in one place and I think this is a dream come true,” said Karabeg from Goodison Park.(Source: Radiosarajevo.ba)last_img read more

World Juniors 2020: Calgary Flames, USA Hockey netminder Dustin Wolf making a name for himself

first_imgCALGARY — When the puck drops in the Czech Republic for the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship tournament on Boxing Day, the Calgary Flames will have just one representative at the event. That lone player: 18-year-old Dustin Wolf. The American goaltender was one of the last selections at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft and is quietly becoming one of the Flames’ — and the NHL’s — top prospects.Originally from Tustin, Calif., an Orange County suburb on the outskirts of Los Angeles, Wolf starred in local leagues as a teen. He moved up the coast in 2017 to join the Western Hockey League’s Everett Silvertips as Carter Hart’s understudy. Wolf’s latest challenge is the upcoming World Junior tournament. One of three goaltenders headed to selection camp — along with Florida Panthers prospect Spencer Knight and Vegas Golden Knights prospect Isaiah Saville – Wolf is hoping to make an impression and help the team win when they travel to the Czech Republic over the holidays.“I want to go into camp and show how much I’ve improved since the Summer Showcase and try to make it a tough decision for who they start,” he said, agreeing that the incumbent Knight may have the lead for the American starting job. “He’s obviously a first-round pick for a reason. Awesome guy, great goaltender, but obviously you’re fighting for a job and you want to play as many games as you can. Whatever it takes to [win] a gold medal, that’s what it’s going to be.”Needless to say, Flames brass is excited to see what Wolf can do on the international stage. For the first time since Johnny Gaudreau captured gold in 2013, the C of Red may be spending the holiday season cheering for the red, white and blue. WJC 2020: Analyzing Canada’s roster | Alexis LafreniereNow in his third season in the WHL and second as Everett’s starter, Wolf has emerged as one of the WHL’s top performers. Heading into the holiday break, he is among the leaders in wins (17), shutouts (five), save percentage (.941) and goals-against average (1.91) in all of Canadian junior hockey. With the pressure of his draft year off, the backstop is allowing himself to focus on hockey.“Just being able to go and play now, not having any worries about what people think of you, [you’re] just going out there and playing your game,” Wolf told Sporting News following a recent victory over the Calgary Hitmen. “When you come out with a win there’s a plus to it. We’ve got a great team right now and hopefully, continue that moving forward.”🎥 WHL Highlight of the Night 🎥November 2, 2019 @NHLFlames prospect @dwolf2332 of @WHLsilvertips#WHLHoN pic.twitter.com/f5rpttPz4F— The WHL (@TheWHL) November 3, 2019Just six months ago, Wolf was one of the sentimental stories of the draft.Highly touted due to his numbers and Everett’s strong season, he unexpectedly slid to the seventh round — 214th overall and fourth from the very end of the entire draft — and was still in attendance at Rogers Arena in Vancouver for the pick. Tears flowed and a big grin was there too as he was selected by the Flames, an organization whose captain is the undrafted Mark Giordano and most iconic players include late draft selections like Theoren Fleury who taken in a round that no longer exists.“Obviously I didn’t expect to stay until the last four picks in the draft,” said Wolf. “But I couldn’t have asked for anything better than to come to Calgary. I’ve got nothing but good things to say about them and they’ve supported me through everything thus far.”It’s pretty much been a dream come true and still a lot of work to do, but a step in the right direction.”The 2010s: Crosby named NHL Athlete of the Decade | NHL All-Decade Teamlast_img read more

Female Leaders Encourage High School Girls To Make Impact at Annual…

first_imgJoanna said she’ll be attending KentState University in the fall and is focused onfeeding all of her interests. Students who attended the workshop were broken up into small groups; they began the day interviewing such political leaders as assemblywomen Joann Downey (D-11) and Serena DiMaso (R-13), Monmouth County Freeholder Sue Kiley, Monmouth County Surrogate Rosemarie Peters and a number of municipal mayors, council and committeewomen and school board members. Neptune Township High School studentJoanna Georges said the program has playedan integral role in her college planning. “I don’t want to be defined by anyone or pigeonhole myself. I have a dream, I have my interests and I have a goal to use whatever business platform I have to make an impact. But I am interested in politics, too. Who knows? Maybe I will run for office one day. But I don’t have to know right now. I can still be a leader in my community,” Joanna added. That was the sentiment expressed by a group of leading political women from the municipal, county and state levels who gathered at Monmouth Regional High School April 4 for the 13th annual Running & Winning event, a workshop for female high school juniors from around Monmouth County led by the League of Women Voters. “I never thought I would be a mayor someday,” Le Grice added. “I changed my mind about the path I was on halfway through my life. It’s never too late to experience everything you want to pursue.” “These young women are 16 years old.No one knows what they want to be whenthey’re 16. Don’t limit yourself. It’s okay tochange your mind and pursue everythingyou want in this life,” Le Grice said. “Youdon’t know who you want to be at 16 or 18 oreven 20. Heck, I’m still waiting to grow up.” Some of the students who attend the program may be motivated to follow a political path, but the program’s co-founder Sherri Harris said the program is intended to inspire participants to be impactful in whatever they choose to do. Fair Haven councilwoman Susan Sorensen said she never intended to toss her hat into the political ring. Sixty junior girls from high schools around Monmouth County gathered at Monmouth Regional High School for the 13th annual Running & Winning event. The League of Women Voters’ initiative brought a number of elected women to speak to the students and inspire them to lead impactful lives.Courtesy Aimee Humphreys A successful businesswoman in the telecommunications industry, Sorensen moved to the Two River area in 1998 with her husband Peter Maher – former head of the borough’s zoning board – and said a greater sense of community service led her to run for the council. Atlantic Highlands Mayor Rhonda C. Le Grice said she hopes a byproduct of the day-long workshop is that the young women in attendance will be empowered to follow their dreams – all of them. TINTON FALLS – Don’t limit yourself. “One of the things we recognize is thatnot every young woman who comes to usis going to run for political office. But whatwe hope it will do is show them they have avoice. They have the ability to collaborate.And they have an opportunity to impact theworld in a meaningful way,” Harris said. “Wehope they develop an awareness that theyare part of a bigger community. And theydon’t have to sacrifice any one experience.” “After work I started going to meetings. I began volunteering on a committee here and committee there. I was always involved, but I was never a political person. Politics are not for me,” Sorensen said. “But if you’re the right person for the job, you’re the right person. And when the opportunity presented itself for me to try and make a difference, I couldn’t let it pass.” Next the groups selected an issue ranging from mental health to global warming and worked alongside their group members on a public presentation for their peers about how to facilitate positive change in a school community. “I’m a very business-oriented person and I love fashion a lot. My goal is to be a fashion entrepreneur, but I still want to positively impact the people around me,” said Joanna, a senior who went through the workshop last year and returned last week in a mentoring role. After graduating from Elmira College in New York, Le Grice became a flight attendant for American Airlines, a position she held for 32 years, and was an active member of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants. “It was an empowering feeling to be working through these issues with so many great girls and to see what we could achieve someday by speaking to these powerful women,” Communications High School junior Tess Rempel said. “It was comforting to know that politics may not have been their interest to begin with. Not all of these women thought they’d be where they are today. But somewhere along the way their paths diverged and they saw an opportunity to make a bigger difference.”last_img read more

Bolt, Fraser-Pryce aiming at more success this year

first_img Pushing myself She added: “I am looking forward to an exciting 2016.” Shot-putter O’Dayne Richards, who twice hit a national record – 21.69m – on his way to winning Pan American gold and a historic World Championships bronze, was presented with the runner-up to the Sportsman of the Year Award. World Championships 100m hurdles gold-medal winner Danielle Williams who clocked a personal best 12.57 for gold in the event in Beijing last summer was runner-up to the Sportswoman of the Year. The People’s Choice Award for Performance of the Year went to Jamaica’s senior women’s 4x400m relay team. Novlene Williams-Mills, who anchored Jamaica to the gold medal in the World Championships 4x400m and who has successfully fought off breast cancer, was recognised with the Chairman’s Award. Former Netball Jamaica president Marva Bernard was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Newly crowned RJR Sports Foundation National Sportsman and Sportswoman of 2015, Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, say winning the prestigious title means a lot to them, adding they will be looking to represent Jamaica well, and seek more global success this year. The RJR Sports Foundation’s annual awards ceremony was held at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel last Friday night. Bolt won his sixth Sportsman of the Year award, after copping titles in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013, while Fraser-Pryce, who also won in 2012 and 2013, lifted her third Sportswoman of the Year title. Last year, Bolt returned from an injury-plagued start to the season to dominate the men’s sprints at the IAAF World Championships. He won gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m in Beijing’s Bird’s Nest Stadium where he had previously set world records in the 100 and 200 metres. “Six-time athlete of the year in Jamaica is always an honour,” Bolt told reporters. Personal best He pointed out that he is looking forward to a stress-free year, but was mindful of the demands ahead. “It’s just about trying to stay focused this year and staying on top of things and making sure everything runs smoothly … pushing myself, but also being aware of everything that is going on around me,” he added. Meanwhile, Fraser-Pryce, the three-time Sportswoman of the Year, also received the Sagicor Iconic Award at the function. The MVP Track Club star won gold medals in the 100m and 4x100m at last year’s World Championships in Beijing, China, as well as copping the Diamond League 100m title. “I am feeling blessed and I am feeling honoured,” she said. “For me winning an award is a signal that you did something right in 2015, and I am really honoured and blessed and grateful to be able to collect a third Sportswoman of the Year Award here,” Fraser-Pryce said.last_img read more

Mourinho laments Ibrahimovic’s ‘sad’ exit from Europe

first_img0Shares0000Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will embark on a new career with LA Galaxy in the Major Soccer League after cutting his contract short at Manchester United © AFP/File / Ian KINGTONMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Mar 30 – Jose Mourinho has paid tribute to Zlatan Ibrahimovic by declaring his departure from Manchester United a “sad” moment for European football.The former Paris Saint-Germain striker secured a move to Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy last week after United agreed to cancel his contract three months early. Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in his first season at Old Trafford, but struggled to recapture his best form after suffering cruciate knee ligament damage during a Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht last April.The 36-year-old Swede managed only one goal for United after making his comeback in November, with his final appearance for the club against Burnley on Boxing Day.“For me, it’s always sad when the big players go in the direction of the end,” United manager Mourinho told a news conference on Friday.“I remember for example Luis Figo, after his last match, with me and with Inter Milan.“I always remember it as one of my saddest moments because I always feel very, very sorry when the big ones finish or go to the last period of their careers.“Zlatan is a huge big player that European football is losing now and forever because he will not be back to this level.”However, Mourinho added: “This period with Galaxy, these couple of years, will be very good for him and American football.”– Shaw option –Meanwhile Mourinho indicated Luke Shaw could win a reprieve despite his recent fierce criticism of the defender.Left-back Ashley Young has been struggling with a knee injury, suffered while on England duty, as United prepare to face Swansea in the Premier League on Saturday, with Shaw his likely deputy.Shaw played in United’s most recent match, a 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final victory over Brighton on March 17, but was substituted at half-time and then pilloried by Mourinho afterwards.The Portuguese manager accused Shaw of not defending well enough, and giving Brighton too much room down the right flank.Shaw is known to be angry with the way he has been treated, but Mourinho insisted the full-back had not been frozen out.“If he’s available, Luke Shaw is always an option,” Mourinho said. “Ashley Young was available to play against Brighton and I started with Luke Shaw, so that’s not a problem.”Reserve goalkeeper Sergio Romero will miss the Swansea game after suffering a knee injury during Argentina’s 6-1 defeat by Spain in Madrid on Tuesday.Romero has been United’s FA Cup ‘keeper this season, but is a major doubt for the semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on April 21 after injuring his right knee in a collision with Diego Costa.“Romero is injured, and I think he will be for a few weeks,” Mourinho, whose second-placed side are currently a huge 16 points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City, said. “I think in the end he was lucky because it was a strong contusion (bruise) and will take a little bit of time to recover.”Mourinho and Swansea counterpart Carlos Carvalhal are the only two Portuguese managers in the Premier League, and have a long-standing friendship.Carvalhal, who has taken Swansea three points clear of the relegation zone since arriving at the Welsh club in December after leaving second-tier Sheffield Wednesday, described Mourinho as the “king of coaches”, before the two men enjoyed a cordial phone conversation on Thursday.“He said I opened the door for more Portuguese coaches to leave which is something I know is true,” Mourinho told reporters.“I speak with him a couple of times every week. Last night I spoke with him a little and thanked him for his nice words. It is one thing to think something, but another to say it.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

DIVILMENT AND A CÚPLA FOCAL LE TOMMY TIERNAN IN DONEGAL

first_imgBe prepared for a bit of divilment as stand-up genius Tommy Tiernan sets out on his second World Tour of Donegal this week.Speaking to donegaldaily.com, the award-winning comic legend described it as a “privilege” to travel the county with his new show “Poot”.He said: “It’s a profound county. It has healing in those mountains. I was here on tour two years ago and I thought that people have enough of a break from you so that you can come back and people trust you for a bit of devilment. “They are marvellous people and it is a privilege to make it happen again.”As part of the tour, Tommy makes a return trip to Dunlewey in the heart of the Gaeltacht which holds a special place for him as his daughter has recently started a Gaelscoil .“We’d ask her every day, ‘so what Irish did you learn’ and she was a bit upset because she said she was the only one who wasn’t called ‘anseo’.“And it’s lovely. She’s saying oh tá sé gaofar. And this day she learned how to bless herself and it was ‘in ainm an athair agus an leithris agus an …….” So does he have any plans to learn Irish?“I have Gaeilge briste. I was brought up with Leinster Irish and now I have broken Connemara Irish. But it’s lovely to hear all the little things she says. And we’re here living in Barna and you know that the people and the Irish here it’s the real thing,” he said.His eight date tour around the county includes Ballybofey, Bundoran, Buncrana, Donegal Town, Dunlewey, Glenties and Letterkenny.Born in Carndonagh, his family left when he was three and relocated to Africa before returning to Ireland .He told how he grew up watching sit-coms on BBC and UTV including The Two Ronnies, Mind your Language and Dad’s Army. “But I wasn’t allowed to watch Not The Nine O’Clock News. I suppose the grá for stand-up came after watching Billy Connolly. But stand-up in general,well, there’s an awful lot of dross and it’s painful,” he said.The sometimes controversial comedian admitted that he had spent a while “saying and thinking the unsayable”.“I don’t think I was controversial. I don’t think that’s part of the experience for people. I think controversy is created by what people read about me in the newspapers. What you read in 2008/9, the shows are a bit hard-edged. I’m in softer mood with a bit of divilment and wildness.”His ‘Crooked Man’ DVD was recently awarded the best comedy dvd of the year and is flying off the shelves. Tommy’s eight-day tour of Donegal kicks off  this Wednesday, November 30 at the Balor Theatre in Ballybofey.

Liverpool blow! Summer signing set for TWO MONTHS out injured

first_imgLoris Karius is set to miss the start of the Premier League season as he faces two months on the sidelines with injury.It is understood the German goalkeeper broke his hand in the pre-season friendly loss to Chelsea, and has flown back to England from the USA to undergo surgery.Karius had started every one of Liverpool’s friendlies this summer, and he was in line to be Jurgen Klopp’s first-choice goalkeeper when the competitive season started.However, he is reportedly set to be out of action until the middle of October, missing games against Arsenal, Tottenham, Leicester, Chelsea and Manchester United.Simon Mignolet and Karius’ fellow summer signing Alex Manninger will now go head to head to stake a claim for the starting position in the weeks running up to the start of the Premier League.

Money given to Donegal couple by ‘naive’ friend was loan not gift

first_imgA €280,000 sum given to a Donegal husband and wife by their “dear” and “naive” friend was a loan sought by the wife with no specified repayment date and not an unsolicited “gift”, a High Court judge has ruled.The “real tragedy” stems from the reaction of Jacqueline and John Keenaghan when Fidelma ‘Della’ Kerrigan sought repayment in 2014 of the loan made by her in August 2010, Ms Justice Deirdre Murphy said. The €280,000 was one-third of a €750,000 compensation sum secured by Ms Kerrigan about two weeks earlier over serious personal injuries suffered by her in a road accident in 2002 in which her father died.The judge accepted evidence of Della Kerrigan and her sister Celine that, in the months leading up to the settlement, Jacqueline Keenaghan, whose architect husband’s business was in serious difficulty due to the financial recession and who was very friendly with the sisters, broached the possibility of Della helping her out of the settlement proceeds and assured Della she would pay back “every penny”.Ms Kerrigan had agreed in principle to help out her “dear friend” and Celine was an enthusiastic supporter of her sister’s decision to do.Rather than acknowledge their debt, the Keenaghan’s chose to deny it and, thereby, “at least by implication”, cast doubt on the honesty of Della and her sister Celine, the judge said.“It was Jacqueline Keenaghan’s denial of the true circumstances of this loan that ruptured this friendship,” she said.“The Kerrigans saw this denial for what it was, an enormous breach of trust”.For full story see https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/courts/money-given-to-donegal-couple-by-naive-friend-was-loan-not-gift-court-rules-37714146.htmlMoney given to Donegal couple by ‘naive’ friend was loan not gift was last modified: January 17th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BallyshannondonegalKerrigansLoanlast_img read more

‘JIM McGUINNESS OFFERED PERFORMANCE COACH JOB AT GLASGOW CELTIC’

first_imgJim McGuinness has been offered a part-time post with Celtic as performance coach with the club’s Youth Academy, reports in Glasgow suggest.The Donegal senior football team manager will retain his position with the GAA as part of the deal if he formally accepts the offer.It’s understood he has agreed “in principle” to take up the Stg£120,000-a-year post. The 39-year-old All-Ireland winning manager has been offered the job three days per week.This would allow him to commute between his home here in Donegal and Glasgow.It’s understood McGuinness, who was a guest of Celtic on Wednesday night for their historic 2-1 win over Barcelona, likes the deal he has been offered.He now plans to discuss the offer with his family. Jim’s role as Donegal GAA manager is a voluntary one; he earns his living as a sports psychologist and has helped sports clubs including Derry City and Finn Harps in the past.He has also worked with golfers like Paul McGinley.The Glenties man told the BBC last month that he would always consider job offers and would never rule out switching codes.Celtic pour huge resources into their Academy teams and their scouting systems with manager Neil Lennon keen to push youth to the fore at the club.The goalscorers on Wednesday were 18-year-old Tony Watt, who’s Scottish, and 21-year-old Kenyan Victor Wanyama. One Celtic insider is quoted as saying: “We expect an announcement in the coming days. The club would love to have a coach of Jim’s calibre working with the club.”Appointing McGuinness to a role in the club would once again cement relations between Celtic Football Club and County Donegal, a tradition going back to the foundation of the side in 1887.Meanwhile Celtic have drawn St Mirren in the semi-final of the League Cup.‘JIM McGUINNESS OFFERED PERFORMANCE COACH JOB AT GLASGOW CELTIC’ was last modified: November 9th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:’JIM McGUINNESS OFFERED PERFORMANCE COACH JOB AT GLASGOW CELTIC’ – REPORTSceltic fcDonegal GAAlast_img read more

GRIDLOCK AT HOSPITAL AS NEW MEDICAL WARD REMAINS CLOSED

first_imgStaff at Letterkenny General Hospital say there is gridlock in the hospital this morning.Letterkenny General HospitalThere are a number of patients in corridors and the accident and emergency department is also overcrowded.The new 18 bed Medical 5 Ward, due to open three weeks ago, is still not functioning. Management has blamed a lack of staff for not being able to open the facility.However hospital staff claim nurses are refusing to work in the unit because they are being offered only a 20 hour week run over three month contracts.A staff member, who has 20 years service in the hospital, said she has never seen it as bad.“It’s simply gridlock and it’s this way every Monday and Tuesday. A major pattern is building up and nothing is being done about it. “These are dangerous working conditions and the staff are at the frontline in dealing with patients.“Management need to do something about this before the hospital falls to its knees. This is no way to run a hospital,” she said.And not for the first time Letterkenny General Hospital is the most overcrowded hospital in Ireland today.The latest figures from Irish Nurse and midwives Organisation) shows there are currently 31 people on trolleys – and a further 20 people are on trolleys while a further 11 are ‘in wards’. GRIDLOCK AT HOSPITAL AS NEW MEDICAL WARD REMAINS CLOSED was last modified: July 30th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:casualtygridlockLetterkenny General Hospitalovercrowdingwardslast_img read more

ATDHE Seized: How Site Takedowns Are Ceremonial

first_imgRelated Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… If you’re a sports fan of any type, then it’s likely that you’ve become familiar with a cryptically-named, poorly designed site called ATDHE that lists video streams of nearly any and every sporting event on TV. It was totally awesome and totally legally questionable. And now, it’s totally taken down by Homeland Security.Of course, the story of ATDHE’s takedown and subsequent re-emergence is another example of the resilience of information online and the amusing game of Whac-A-Mole that is illegal information on the Internet.TechDirt’s Mike Masnick wrote about a spate of domain name seizures over Thanksgiving Weekend last November much like today’s. According to CrunchGear‘s Nicholas Deleon, ATDHE isn’t alone, with rojadirecta.org suffering a similar fate.As we saw with WikiLeaks, however, when people want something on the Internet to stay on the Internet badly enough, it’s only a matter of moments before a mirror pops up in another location. One tweet illustrated the situation, saying “RIP atdhe.net while celebrating the birth of atdhe.me.”The first tweets mentioning the disappearance of ATDHE started at around noon pacific. By two in the afternoon, tweets began mentioning ATDHE.me, the replacement site. In much the same way, the ATDHE Twitter account also quickly tweeted out the IP address to use until the site went back online under a different name. Another site taken down today first tweeted at 2:12 that it was down. At 2:17, it tweeted again to say that it could be found at an alternate domain name. As I said: Whac-A-Mole.What makes the whole thing even more interesting is that ATDHE.net didn’t host any illegal content. It was a list of links to homemade video streams on sites like Justin.tv. As we saw with content takedowns on Twitter last April, however, direct hosting of content may not be necessary to remove something – just linking may be enough. With ATDHE, streams consisted of someone literally pointing a camera on a tripod at their television and streaming that. Where does the illegality come into play here and is seizing the domain name the answer? There’s one thing for sure, it’s surely the ineffective answer on the part of the authorities, but I bet sports fans won’t be complaining.Update: TorrentFreak has a list of sites taken down in similar manner today. The article points out similar questions regarding the legality of not only the content, but the takedown:Similar to BitTorrent sites, Rojadirecta doesn’t host any copyrighted material. Instead, it indexes HTTP links to sports streams that can already be found on the Internet, and also carries links to .torrent files which are hosted on other sites.The site is owned by a Spanish company that pays its taxes and has been declared to operate legally in Spain. In addition, the site is not hosted in the US either.

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESAll About Water HeatersImproving Water Heater EfficiencyHeat-Pump Water Heaters Come of AgeA New Efficiency Standard for Gas FurnacesRefrigerators Get New Efficiency Standards Water heaters larger than 55 gallons will see a much bigger jump in efficiency. The new standards for these larger water heaters can be met using electric heat pump and gas condensing technology. Heat-pump water heaters save at least 50 percent and condensing gas units about 25 percent compared to today’s conventional water heaters.Heat-pump water heaters (also known as hybrid water heaters) transfer heat from the surrounding air to the water. When hot water demand is very high or the ambient air temperature drops below a threshold level, the hybrids switch from heat pump mode to electric resistance mode.According to DOE’s analysis, a consumer purchasing these highly efficient units will save more than $600 over the life of the product compared to a water heater just meeting the current efficiency standards. While the upfront cost to purchase and install these products is higher, consumers will recoup the added cost in about six years on average through lower electricity bills. Consumer Reports tested heat-pump water heaters and found that “Those we tested provided annual savings of about 60 percent over electric-only models.”One key concern about heat-pump water heaters is low temperature operation. When the heat-pump water heater operates in electric resistance mode, it doesn’t save energy or money compared to a conventional unit. Research by the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance showed that some early heat-pump water heater models were cutting over to electric resistance mode at relatively high ambient temperatures.Manufacturers have been working to lower the minimum temperature at which water heaters operate in heat pump mode. Recent models have made significant progress, ensuring heat pump operation down to ambient temperatures as low as 35 degrees. The vast majority of utility programs in the Northwest point to the Northern Climate Specification Qualified Products List to determine whether a heat-pump water heater qualifies for utility incentivesCondensing gas water heaters are not as common as heat-pump water heaters, but consumers have more choices today than they did just a few years ago. Conventional gas water heaters lose much of the energy burned up the flue. Condensing water heaters are designed to reclaim much of this escaping heat by cooling exhaust gases well below 140 degrees F, where water vapor in the exhaust condenses into water.Water heaters will get a little biggerA review of manufacturers’ web sites shows that the height and/or diameter of some conventional products will increase 1 to 2 inches (some less than an inch) due to added insulation.For many homes, particularly those with basement installations, the small increase in size will have little impact. Consumers with space constraints (e.g., water heaters in closets or crawl spaces) should consult manufacturers’ web sites or local installers for options. Consumers may find that a product from one manufacturer fits better in their tight space than a similar product from a different manufacturer.Manufacturers are offering webinars, online videos, and educational materials to guide consumers, contractors, and installers through the changes. Several web sites include cross-reference guides to help consumers compare current models to models meeting the new standards. You will find most of the educational materials on manufacturer websites under NAECA (National Appliance Energy Conservation Act), the legislation that authorized appliance efficiency standards.What about grid-enabled water heaters?Utilities represented by the National Rural Electric Cooperative (NRECA) and the American Public Power Association, along with PJM Interconnection (regional grid operator) raised concerns that demand-response programs for water heaters over 55 gallons would suffer if they were required to switch to heat-pump water heaters.In these programs, utilities control the use of grid-enabled (connected) water heaters to manage energy use at peak times, resulting in large savings. Though some stakeholders claim that heat-pump water heaters can provide the services that NRECA and others desire, not all stakeholders are convinced that they will work as well. A legislative fix to establish a class of water heaters for demand-response programs is pending in Congress. In addition, some manufacturers have petitioned for waivers for this application.Marianne DiMascio is the outreach director of the Appliance Standards Awareness Project at the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. This blog was originally posted at ACEEE and is used here with permission of the author. From the rustic 1850s pump shower to the 1920s Humphrey automatic to today’s modern units, water heaters have made great strides in performance and efficiency. On April 16, water heaters will take the next great stride when manufacturers must comply with new Department of Energy (DOE) efficiency standards.The most common water heaters manufactured on and after this date will get a modest boost in efficiency, while units over 55 gallons will shift to next-generation technology, cutting utility bills by one-fourth to one-half depending on the technology.What’s coveredCompleted by DOE in 2010, the standards cover gas, oil, and electric residential tank water heaters, usually between 20 and 80 gallons. (DOE also upped the efficiency levels for instantaneous — tankless — gas water heaters, but most models already meet the new efficiency levels.)Water heating is on average the second largest household energy expense behind space heating, representing about 18 percent of total household energy consumption in the U.S. Consumers annually pay an average of about $170 (gas) and $300 (electric) to operate a water heater just meeting current efficiency standards. About 50 percent of U.S. households use natural gas water heaters, 41 percent electric, and the remainder propane or oil.DOE estimates that the new efficiency measures will save 2.6 quadrillion Btus (quads) of energy over 30 years and net consumers up to $8.7 billion in savings. Over the same period, the standards will reduce CO2 emissions by 154 million metric tons. To put these long-term savings in perspective, the savings are enough to meet the total energy needs of 13 million typical US homes for a year, and the CO2 savings are equivalent to taking 32 million passenger cars off the road for a year.Most storage water heaters to get a modest boost in efficiencyFor storage water heaters with volumes of 55 gallons and below (representing the vast majority of sales), the new standards will increase the efficiency of typical-sized units by 4 percent on average. Manufacturers plan to meet the efficiency levels with incremental improvements such as improved heat exchangers (gas) and more insulation. Water heaters that comply with the new standards are already on the market, including models from the three large domestic manufacturers (A.O. Smith, Bradford White, and Rheem) that make most water heaters sold in the United States.last_img read more

Here are 3 ways IoT is transforming healthcare

Some patients wait up to five years to receive an organ donation, and because organs are viable for transplant for only four to 24 hours, it is absolutely critical that donations are transported quickly and safely to their recipients. Any logistical error or miscommunication during this process could not only result in a wasted donation but could also cost patients their lives.The solutionHaving already developed fleet and asset GPS tracking solutions for industries such as construction, insurance, and security; Novipod expanded beyond these traditional applications with a new product – OrganTracker. The OrganTracker solution combines hardware, communications’ technologies, and their software platform to transmit real-time data for organ donations.In addition to high precision GPS location powered by Position Logic, OrganTracker provides intelligence for other key variables in the organ transportation process including temperature, light, shock, humidity, and pressure – all delivered automatically to medical organizations via IoT.Key resultsEfficiently and securely transport organs from the donor to the recipientReduce instances of human error or miscommunicationIncreased success rate for organ transplantsAbility to make better-informed decisions regarding organ transplantsLivongo – simplifying diabetes managementThe issueIn 2012, there were 29.1 million Americans suffering from diabetes, with another 86 million people with an elevated risk of developing the disease. Aside from the potential complications and high costs associated with managing diabetes – the condition weighs a hefty toll on quality of life and creates significant personal implications for those who suffer from it.While automated, IoT-powered solutions have simplified and improved the delivery of care for many chronic diseases – there has unfortunately been little traction made to assist diabetics. Realizing this gap in the consumer medical device industry, Livongo set out as an early-adopter providing digital health solutions for the treatment of a number of illnesses, including diabetes.The solutionThe first of its kind – Livongo has developed a cellular, IoT-enabled connected meter that automatically uploads blood glucose readings to the cloud, making them accessible online by patients, physicians, as well as family and loved ones. Digital record storage eliminates the complexity associated with the traditional log books used by diabetics, simplifying the record-keeping process. In addition, Livongo’s application transforms the raw data into valuable information that can be used to improve patient care and provide personalized tips for managing diabetes effectively.Key resultsDigitally record and track blood glucose readings for easy accessGain real-time, personalized messages to improve diabetes managementAutomatically notify physicians or loved ones when blood glucose readings are out of rangeAbility to make better-informed decisions regarding your readings based on data analysisReal-time support from Certified Diabetes EducatorsThese are just three examples of how IoT technology is transforming healthcare.

ReadWrite Sponsors The Internet of Things (IoT) has become known for its cool factor right now. From self-driving cars to smart homes filled with voice activated devices, the innovation of IoT’s connectivity never fails to impress. However, the world of IoT is doing more than making day-to-day tasks and business objectives easier to accomplish – oftentimes much more – such as saving lives.With each day, we’re seeing new IoT applications that are addressing healthcare issues head-on and, quite frankly, we could go on and on and only scratch the surface of the amazing work being done in this space. That said, here are three unique use cases that illustrate how IoT is transforming healthcare delivery.Curo – IoT is enabling seniors’ autonomyThe issueExponential advancements in the healthcare delivery field are directly, and positively, impacting life expectancy and contributing to our aging global population. Although it is true that people are now able to live longer, healthier lives – with old age comes increased probability of falling ill with chronic disease, decreased mobility, and greater risk of medical emergency. Traditionally these conditions would result in long-term hospitalizations or a move to an assisted care facility or nursing home.Today, because of innovative healthtech companies such as Curo, senior care can now be delivered in a more flexible and convenient manner via the KORE IoT cellular network, empowering elderly patients to continue to reside independently in their own homes.The solutionOriginally based in Melbourne, Australia, Curo recognized the need for an “aging in place” solution that would not only facilitate senior autonomy, but also ensure peace of mind to loved ones and enable caregivers to quickly and efficiently intervene in the case of a medical emergency.As a result, Curo has developed a SaaS-based IoT healthcare solution that leverages intelligence derived from sensors placed in a patient’s home to monitor the activity and well-being of older adults. Thousands of data points autonomously transmit information without requiring the older adult to wear any type of device or complete any physical task for the solution to function.Key resultsEnsure timely and necessary home visits for professional caregiversProvide information and peace of mind for family members or loved onesEmpower caregiving companies with access to more information, thus improving quality of careNoninvasive or bothersome to the older adultAllow for earlier and lower cost interventions in case of medical emergencylast_img read more

He was mentally and physically strong,” she added. Replying to a query, Mary Kom said there was a need for a boxing federation in the country. “We want boxers federation to be formed as early as possible. It will be good for young pugilists. Absence of a federation is disadvantageous for young boxers as they are deprived of the much-needed support, she said. “It also hurts. For instance, I was very sad when our flag was not there when I won a bronze in Asia-Oceania tournament. The flag wasnt there because we do not have boxing federation,” she said.

Mets Rough Up Kazmir, A’s, 10-1

first_imgNEW YORK — Travis d’Arnaud said he flashed a big grin when he saw Citi Field for the first time in two weeks. He was downright giddy when he got a “car wash” several hours later.D’Arnaud hit a three-run shot in his return from a demotion, slumping outfielder Chris Young homered twice and the New York Mets roughed up Scott Kazmir and the Oakland Athletics 10-1 on the night of June 24 for their season high-tying third straight win.“They were all just waving their towels so I winged it,” d’Arnaud said of prancing through the dugout receiving line dubbed the car wash. “It was fun.”Young homered off Kazmir (9-3) in the second, four pitches after Curtis Granderson hit a two-run drive for the Mets first back-to back homers since Sept. 14.Young also connected off failed closer Jim Johnson in the fifth for only the Mets’ fifth four-homer game at Citi Field since it opened in 2009, according to STATS.Manager Terry Collins earlier said he has been talking with Young about his role and getting him on track amid rumors that Young, batting .201 coming in, was close to being cut despite having signed a one-year, $7.25 million contract in the off-season.“Those decisions aren’t in your hands,” Young said. “You stressing about it is not going to help the situation.”Granderson and David Wright had RBI groundouts, and Daniel Murphy added a run-scoring single for the Mets, who scored at least 10 runs in consecutive games for the first time since June 28-29, 2011, in Detroit.They beat Miami 11-5 on Sunday to end a road trip with two straight wins and a new celebration started by Granderson.After each homer, the player being feted trotted through two parallel lines of white towel-flailing teammates in the dugout. They then would turn around and do it again.“Today (Zack) Wheeler started the car wash where everyone gets the towel waving and you go through the car wash … and after you finished you got to get dried off so you come back through,” Granderson said. “It’s a good thing to keep it as much fun as possible in the dugout.”Bartolo Colon (8-5) shut down the team that didn’t want him back this year despite an 18-win season, pitching four-hit ball for eight innings against the AL West leaders.A first-round draft pick by New York in 2002 but sent to Tampa Bay in a very unpopular trade two years later, Kazmir flopped in his first start ever in Queens.“I’ve never played in Shea Stadium. I’d never played in Citi Field so it’s not really coming back for me,” Kazmir said.He entered with the AL’s best ERA (2.08) and on a four-game winning streak, but was out after just three innings and a season-high seven runs. His ERA rose to 2.66.Kazmir went 22 starts without giving up more than one homer in a game since Aug. 18, with Cleveland.“It was a performance that we haven’t seen,” A’s Manager Bob Melvin said, “so for me it just looked like some balls were up in the zone and he wasn’t locating like he normally does.”Signed by the Mets 10 days after the A’s inked Kazmir in December, Colon won his sixth straight decision. He also singled for his second straight game, much to the delight of the 25,751 in attendance.Colon only faced trouble in the first when Yoenis Cespedes followed Brandon Moss’ single with a double to the wall in center field for the early lead.Colon gave up a hit to Cespedes in the fourth and another single in the fifth to Coco Crisp, but he otherwise cruised through the best run-producing lineup in the majors.“It feels really good in particular because it’s a team like the Oakland A’s, which for me right now is the No. 1 team,” Colon said through a translator.D’Arnaud was recalled after a two-week stint in Triple-A Las Vegas. The Mets’ catcher of the future was hitting .180 when he was sent down. He struck out in the second but connected in the third.(HOWIE RUMBERG, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

That was a routine win and possibly the easiest nights work for Subasic in goal. An own goal from Etebo and a penalty from Modric did the damage but Nigeria have some serious work to do after such a flat performance on the world’s biggest stage.FULL-TIME Croatia run out 2-0 winners in a straightforward victory. Nigeria weren’t at the races at all during this game and will have to improve if they want to progress from this tough group.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move 90+2 Mins: HUGE CHANCE!!!! Nigeria fall asleep at the back and Kovacic bursts into the box and he has options. The sensible route was Perisic for a simple tap in but he tries to make a name for himself and Uzoho dives to his left to deny him. Why on earth didn’t he pass? It remains 2-0.90 Mins: Four minutes of stoppage time given in Kaliningrad. This has been a routine win for Croatia but it is certainly a game to forget for the neutrals and Super Eagles fans.89 Mins: Yellow card! Brozovic has barely had a kick tonight but he makes enough contact with an opposition player and gets a yellow card.Nigeria Substitution: Skipper Mikel has had a night to forget and he sits down on the bench in disappointment as Simy runs past him to try and make a difference with just two minutes to go.Croatia Substitution: Juventus forward Mandžukić is clapped off the field as he gets brought off with just minutes to go. Pjaca is his replacement but he will not have long to make an impact.85 Mins: Nigeria’s fans look disappointed and confused in the stands as their team continue to struggle. They have barely made an impact and this will be a huge lesson for them tonight.84 Mins: We have a short break in play as Perisic goes down after a clumsy challenge.82 Mins: Croatia continue to ease their way to victory but there is still room for improvement from Dalic’s men going into their games against Argentina and Iceland. 80 Mins: Just ten minutes to go and it has not been an amazing advert for World Cup football in Group D today. Many were hoping these two would kick on after the 1-1 draw between Argentina and Iceland but Croatia have just done enough.Croatia Substitution: Rebic has worked extremely hard this evening and he is now given a rest as Kovačić steps onto the field of play.77 Mins: Iheanacho makes a fast start as he glides into the box but he shoots wide after scooping the effort rather than putting power behind his drive.76 Mins: Ighalo has endured a quiet night and Iheanacho will now be given the task of leading the line.73 Mins: Croatia will end the evening on top of Group D unless Nigeria can pull off a superb fightback.Luka Modric Croatia Nigeria World Cup 201871 Mins: GOAAALLLL CROATIA! It is now 2-0 and Modric is the man of the moment. The captain takes responsibility for the penalty and he steps up before sendig Uzoho the wrong way!69 Mins: PENALTY CROATIA! What on earth was William Troost-Ekong thinking? He wrestles Mandzukic to the ground while defending a corner the referee doesn’t hesitate to give the decision a penalty for Croatia and a yellow card for the Nigerian. Modric will take…. 66 Mins: Nigeria’s fans plead for a penalty as Moses goes down but the referee waves them away. That’s the fourth or fifth time that the Chelsea man has gone down and it is not nice to see him trying to buy free-kicks and penalties.63 Mins: Croatia win a corner and Mandzukic latches onto the pass but his header never troubles Uzoho in the Nigeria goal.Nigeria Substitution: Arsenal man Iwobi has endured a poor afternoon and Musa is now given a chance from the bench.Croatia Substitution: Kramarić enjoyed a lively first half but he has barely had a touch in the first 15 minutes of the second. As a result he is hauled off and on comes Brozović.59 Mins: CHANCE – Rohr’s men finally force a save out of Subasic but Ighalo’s header is not strong enough to cause any problems.58 Mins: Nigeria have yet to raise the tempo and changes could be on the cards before this contest slips away from them.55 Mins: MASSIVE CHANCE! Rakitic plays a fantastic ball out to Perisic who delivers a cross in behind the Nigeria defence, Rebic times his run perfectly but can only volley narrowly over the bar from six yards out, he should have done better.52 Mins: Some good work from Moses sees Croatia panic slightly at the back but any chance of a goal is ruined as Ighalo bundles into the back of his marker.51 Mins: Croatia finally build their first attack of the second half but Rakitic spoilts it by blasting his shot into the stands from 35 yards.50 Mins: Etebo picks out Moses on the right wing before he dances his way into the box but he snatches at his shot and claims it should be a corner. The officials are having none of it and a goal kick is awarded.49 Mins: The Super Eagles win three corners in a row but Croatia eventually clear their lines at the third attempt. That’s a small improvement from Rohr’s outfit and let’s see if they can build on that.48 Mins: Quite simply Nigeria need to do more in the second half after a lacklustre display in the first 45 minutes. Their fans have continued to back them in the stands but they need something to smile about!STAT: Nigeria’s last two goals conceded at a World Cup have both been own goals. Etebo’s this evening follows Joseph Yobo’s from the 2014 defeat to France.46 Mins: The second half is underway.Dalic’s men will be looking for a second and they could well find it unless Nigeria raise their game. The African giants have just gone through the motions so far and they need to give Ighalo some support before they lose this evening.An own goal from Etebo is the difference at the interval and Croatia definitely deserved to be in front. Modric has been superb so far as he pulls the strings, while Rakitic, Kramaric and Mandzukic have also looked sharpHALF TIME: The game sprung into life during the last 15 minutes of the first half. Croatia look good value for their lead so far.45+1 Mins: Two minutes of stoppage time…45 Mins: CHANCE – Iwobi seems to have read this text commentary as he latches onto a clearance and drills a shot towards goal but Lovren throws himself in the way to make sure the scoreline remains 1-0.44 Mins: The Super Eagles need the interval by the looks of things. Mikel, Iwobi and Ighalo have hardly featured and they maybe need some words of encouragement ahead of the second 45 minutes.42 Mins: WIDE! A long spell of Croatian posession ends with Mandzukic laying off Vrsaljko who smashes the ball way wide of the goal.39 Mins: CHANCE – Croatia produce another sensational team move and Kramaric is very unlucky to not grab a second for his team. Barcelona’s Rakitic picked him out but the striker could only watch his header loop over the bar.37 Mins: Nigeria are struggling to get back into the game and the likes of Iwobi and Mikel have barely had a kick so far.

Feel Good Friday – Thrive Market

first_img The Barbershop Renaissance and Men’s Grooming Revolution, According to Fellow Barber’s Sam Buffa Editors’ Recommendations How to Choose the Best Organic Mattress for Greener Sleep 3 of the Best Teeth Whitening Products For Pearly Whites What Wrangler Is Doing to Make Denim More Sustainable As much as we love a good stroll at the farmers’ market buying local produce, we are busy dudes and sometimes a Saturday morning lounging on the couch trumps marching through the market. But we still are big supporters of organic, local and healthy food and many of the online shopping spots just don’t carry the brands we would typically shop for.Enter Thrive Market, the first socially conscious online store selling natural and organic products at wholesale prices. They carry over 2,500 products from 400 of the best brands on the market. We tested it out (you can too with a free trial membership) and were very impressed with the products we found. Compostable trash bags? Cool! Brown Rice Pasta? Yes please. Tea tree toothpicks? Right on. There is a minimal fee to be a member ($56 a year) but it is well worth it. Think of it as an online co-op.We spoke to the founder of Thrive Market, Gunnar Lovelace (yes, really) about his background and how the market became a reality.Gunnar, what is your background?I’ve been in the natural products industry for many years. It’s a $200 billion annual market from food to health to clothing. I also have a jewelry company called Love Heals that sells in 500 stores.When did Thrive Market launch?We just launched in mid November and had 500,000 people the first week! So there is an incredible demand.What inspired you to start this online shopping destination?I grew up with a single mom and saw how hard it was for her to make healthy choices.I have been fascinated by health and wellness my whole life. Later my mother married a man who owns a food co-op and I realized how buying through a co-op can get you better prices. So this is basically like a 21st Century Co-Op. I am fascinated with a vehicle for social change.Is this a first? It’s the first time you can buy a lot of these natural products at the same price as conventional products. The biggest complaint by most American families is that they can’t afford organic products.How did you meet the brands?A lot of my friends own these companies- I have been in the food world for the past 16 years. They were just as excited to do this and to get more exposure. We are basically taking out the middle man. We take the product and sell directly to the consumer.So is it thriving? Sorry we had to.We are constantly bringing on new brands. Our primary focus is to educate people about the availability of these products. That is the most essential goal as well as getting the word out as far and wide as possible. We make it easy for people by providing them with a simple website, free shipping and heavy customer service. We want to be known as a trusted curated source. When there are 50 bags of chips at a healthy food store it is overwhelming, so we narrow it down. 14 Best Outdoor Stores in the United Stateslast_img read more

De nouveaux projets communautaires de production dénergie renouvelable vont de lavant

first_img « Nous sommes heureux que ces groupes communautaires et l’université profitent du programme de tarif de rachat communautaire pour réaliser des projets locaux de production d’électricité renouvelable, a déclaré M. Parker. Ils font preuve d’initiative en participant au programme COMFIT pour répondre à leurs besoins en électricité et réduire leur empreinte environnementale. » Pour le recteur et vice-chancelier de l’Université Sainte-Anne, Allister Surette, cette approbation signifie l’achèvement d’une autre étape dans les efforts faits par l’université pour devenir l’université la plus verte au Canada. M. Surette a déclaré que l’utilisation d’une éolienne dans le cadre du programme COMFIT, qui s’ajoute à de celle d’une chaudière alimentée à la biomasse et de 118 panneaux solaires, contribuera à la réduction des gaz à effet de serre et des coûts de fonctionnement de l’université. Le concept du programme COMFIT a été décrit dans le Plan en matière d’électricité renouvelable de 2010. Le but du programme est de contribuer à un approvisionnement en énergie propre à des prix stables, d’appuyer les projets de production d’énergie renouvelable et de créer des emplois. « La réalisation de projets de production d’énergie renouvelable partout dans la province nous aidera à réduire notre coûteuse dépendance au charbon importé et à atteindre le but imposé par la loi, qui est d’avoir une production énergétique provenant à 40 p. 100 de sources d’énergie renouvelable d’ici 2020, a dit M. Parker. COMFIT est un élément important du plan d’énergie renouvelable de la Nouvelle-Écosse. » Les projets présentés sont étudiés par un comité formé de plusieurs représentants des ministères provinciaux. Le comité évalue chaque projet en fonction de critères établis, notamment les avantages pour la collectivité, l’appui communautaire, le financement et la planification de l’implantation. Les projets qui visent une capacité de distribution sont évalués en fonction de critères différents dans le cadre d’un processus d’évaluation distinct. L’information sur les exigences et sur le processus de prise de décision est affiché à www.nsrenewables.ca (en anglais seulement). Jusqu’à présent, plus de 25 groupes communautaires ont présenté plus de 100 projets locaux de production d’énergie renouvelable dans le cadre du programme COMFIT. Le programme accepte encore des demandes qui répondent aux critères. COMFIT accorde aux groupes admissibles un prix fixe par kilowattheure pour la production d’électricité à partir des ressources renouvelables, telles que le vent, la biomasse, les marées, et de l’utilisation de turbines en mer ainsi que de centrales marémotrices et au fil de l’eau. Les tarifs de rachat communautaire ont été établis par la Commission des services publics et d’examen en septembre 2011. Les groupes admissibles sont les municipalités, les Premières Nations, les coopératives, les fonds d’investissement communautaires pour le développement économique et les associations à but non lucratif. La Province s’attend à la production de 100 mégawatts grâce à COMFIT. Pour plus d’information sur le programme, allez à www.nsrenewables.ca (en anglais seulement). Dans un avenir rapproché, quatre collectivités et une université profiteront des bienfaits d’une électricité propre, verte et renouvelable produite chez elles. Le ministre de l’Énergie, Charlie Parker, a annoncé aujourd’hui, 9 juillet, que cinq projets avaient été approuvés dans le cadre du programme de tarif de rachat communautaire (COMFIT). Il s’agit : du projet éolien de 800 kilowatts de la société Northumberland Wind Field à Barney’s River, dans le comté de Pictou ; du projet éolien de 4 mégawatts à Barrachois, dans la Municipalité régionale du Cap-Breton, et de 2,3 mégawatts à Gaetz Brook, dans la Municipalité régionale d’Halifax, proposé par le groupe Wind4all Communities; du projet éolien de 50 kilowatts sur le campus de l’Université Sainte-Anne à Pointe-de-l’Église, dans le comté de Digby; du projet de 4,8 mégawatts à Kemptown, dans le comté de Colchester, proposé par Affinity Renewables, un organisme à but non lucratif appartenant à la Nova Scotia SPCA; du projet de 1,6 mégawatts de la société Celtic Current à Marion Bridge, dans la Municipalité régionale du Cap-Breton. last_img read more

Crowd watches as backhoe rips into mangled plane after Halifax runway overrun

first_imgHALIFAX – Crews have begun tearing into the mangled Boeing 747 cargo jet that overshot a Halifax runway last week, as gawkers marvelled at the huge wreck — and how close the plane came to breaching the airport’s fence and overrunning a public road.Dozens of people watched late Sunday afternoon as a backhoe dug into the midsection of the fuselage, which buckled when the empty SkyLease Cargo plane overshot the runway at Halifax Stanfield International Airport on Wednesday.“It’s quite a sight — it’s awful close to the road. If it hadn’t stopped where it did, it would be right where we’re parking right now,” said Jayme Newcombe, who came from Milford, N.S., with her partner Jamie Fillmore to show the mangled aircraft to their three-year-old son, Riley, who is fascinated by planes.“They’re very lucky to walk away from that for sure. A few more feet and they would have gone through some telephone poles and it could have been worse for them. Very lucky to end it the way they did,” said Fillmore.The four crew members suffered minor injuries and the plane was badly damaged when it slid 210 metres off the end of Runway 14 on Wednesday. Federal investigators said it touched down in rainy conditions while being buffeted by a crosswind with a potential tailwind.“I’m glad for the crew that it held together, that it basically stayed in roughly one piece — although not in a real healthy way for the plane,” said Oscar Lopez of Halifax, one of the many who braved near-freezing temperatures for a look. “It’s something with that crack in the middle … it’s quite a sight.”Flight KKE 4854, which had arrived from Chicago just after 5 a.m. Wednesday after a two-and-a-half hour flight, was to be loaded with live lobster destined for China.As it skidded down a slight, grassy embankment, the plane hit a large localizer antenna, its landing gear collapsed, two of its four engines were torn off and there was a small fire under the tail section — caused by one of the severed engines.The Transportation Safety Board of Canada said Saturday that it had released the site, and planned to examine recovered components at its Ottawa lab.Investigators planned to download and analyze data from the cockpit voice and flight data recorders, the TSB said. They planned to talk to witnesses, review control tower audio and radar data, and investigate weather and runway surface conditions as well as records for the aircraft and its pilots.It also said it would “examine the terrain at the end of the runway at Halifax/Stanfield Airport to determine what role it played in aircraft damage.”On Monday, Theresa Rath Spicer, director of public affairs, marketing and customer relations for the Halifax Stanfield International Airport, said the backhoe was used to prepare for the dismantling and removal of the aircraft.“First and foremost, safety and the environment remain our top priorities, and with respect to that, we are continuing to work to mitigate the environmental concerns caused by the fuel leak,” she said.“We’ve engaged an environmental consultant very early on in this process, and we’re working in concert with them as we monitor the situation on a 24/7 basis.”Rath Spicer said the impact of the fuel leak — classified by the TSB as “minimal” — has been contained to the immediate site area, and arrangements will be made to remove the impacted soil as soon as possible.She said the next step is to remove the fuel from the aircraft before dismantling the aircraft itself. The process is expected to take a number of days.She added that operations for the airport went back to normal on Friday.“We did see some delays, cancellations and even some early arriving flights on Saturday with the inclement weather, but we are pleased to report that at this time, our operation has normalized,” she said.Late Sunday afternoon, the massive plane remained within a few dozen metres of the fence as crews worked around it.The operator of a large backhoe would rip at the plane’s mid-section, get out to take a look, and then take another swipe. A smaller backhoe picked up nearby debris, including what appeared to be pieces of airport ground equipment, as people with rakes filled up drums with debris.“By the looks of the terrain at the end of the runway there, they must have had a real bumpy ride there, that last bit,” said Carl Gates, who drove from Dartmouth for a look with his wife, Lorraine.“It’s going to take quite a bit to get it out of there,” said Lorraine Gates.Jordan Reimer drove to the airport from the Annapolis Valley to have a look at the wreck with some friends. He said he had recently damaged his own light aircraft in a windstorm, and sympathized with the pilot.“A fun thing to see — it’s huge. Was worth the drive all the way out here, definitely,” he said. “I just feel really bad for the pilot. He did not have a good day.”last_img read more

Awshomapto Mir Afsar releases his new album

first_imgMir Afsar Ali has come up with an album ‘Awshomapto’ – a monologue by the poet/author, where he recollects his memories of different endeavours – all of which has a common ground of love.His memoirs of six different phases of life which he had gone through in his lifetime are recorded. The album was released on April 12 in Kolkata. In all the phases, he thinks his main strength – escape refuge – and in the end the place where it all kind of converges in one point is songs and verses by Rabindranath Tagore.

Being the oldest Indian music label in the country, it was evidently popular as the only Indian Music Company. Rabindranath Tagore recorded his first recording with ‘Hindusthan Records’ and encouraged his disciples to record as well. The music label has the top recording artists of the past hundred years including K L Saigal, S D Burman, Debabrata Biswas, Subinoy Roy, Pankaj Kumar Mullick, Amar Pal, Kanika Banerjee,Pannalal Bhattacharjee, Mohiner Ghoraguli, Abbasuddin, Gyan Prakash Ghosh, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Kanan Devi, Feroza Begum, Begum Akhtar, Mehdi Hassan, Ghulam Ali and other luminaries. As the format changed, the need of the hour was to take a strategic decision to diversify into the domain of emerging media and technology. INRECO was the first to get into the Digital Domain.last_img read more

Andhra CM meets Rahul Gandhi likely to call Opposition meeting on May

first_imgNew Delhi: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu Wednesday met Congress President Rahul Gandhi and discussed plans to hold a meeting of Opposition parties on May 21, two days ahead of Lok Sabha results to chalk out a post-poll alliance. Naidu met Gandhi before heading out to West Bengal to attend public rallies in support of the ruling Trinamool Congress in the state, sources said. In a brief meeting, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief is believed to have discussed the voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) issue, voting percentage in the recently held five phase polling besides the Andhra Assembly election developments, the sources said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework The sources said Naidu and Gandhi also discussed the post-poll scenario and more or less agreed to call a meeting of Opposition parties on May 21. The Lok Sabha elections are being held in seven phases. So far, polling in five phases are over and the counting of votes will be on May 23. Naidu will be meeting West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee apart from attending her rallies on Wednesday and Thursday. The Andhra Pradesh CM was in Delhi to attend the Supreme Court hearing on a petition filed by the Opposition parties to review its judgment rejecting 50 per cent random physical verification of EVMs using VVPATs. The apex court dismissed the petition following which the parties again met the Election Commission to press their demand.last_img read more

Sri Lanka facing an economic war

Sri Lanka is facing an economic war launched by some groups three years after the war with the LTTE came to an end, External Affairs Minister G.L Peiris said today.Speaking at a Defence seminar in Colombo the Minister said that these groups are trying to persuade tourists to boycott Sri Lanka and in the end strike at the root of Sri Lanka’s economy. He also expressed regret at attempts to internationalize the situation in Sri Lanka and push for a foreign solution on the country. He also said that the remaining war displaced people will be resettled by the middle of this month.The External Affairs Minister noted that there was misinformed criticism about the army and its relationship with the government.He also stressed that the role of the army during the war was to release civilians being held by the LTTE. He also stressed that the government will not fully withdraw the armed forces from the north despite immense pressure to do so.The External Affairs Minister said that the government will only reduce the military presence in the north but maintain some troops like in other parts of the country for security purposes. Peiris stressed that only a domestic solution will suite Sri Lanka and that solution will be reached through a parliament process. read more

DR of Congo amid positive signs concerns remain Security Council told

Hedi Annabi, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, said in a briefing to the Council that the ceasefire had been holding since January, and that Namibia had been withdrawing its troops according to schedule. Rwanda, he said, had also pulled out a significant number of soldiers. On the political front, the preparatory meeting for the 15 October inter-Congolese Dialogue in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, was held in a “constructive environment” from 20 to 24 August in Gaborone, Botswana, Mr. Annabi said. Representatives from all parts of the DRC took part in the preparatory meeting, agreeing on issues related to the liberalization of political life, freedom of movement, the reestablishment of communications, the protection of persons and natural resources, and the withdrawal of foreign troops.Still, there were areas of concern, the Assistant Secretary-General said. In territory controlled by the RCD (Congolese Rally for Democracy) in North Kivu, the climate of insecurity had worsened amid movements by armed groups towards Rwanda, and arbitrary arrests and extra-judicial executions by the authorities continued. In South Kivu, daily clashes occurred this month between forces from the RCD and armed groups, resulting in killings, lootings and displacement. In territory held by the MLC (Congolese Liberation Movement), the human rights situation was also deteriorating, he said.Mr. Annabi also flagged the problem of a lack of access for relief organizations. “In general, humanitarian agencies have access to less than half of the two million internally displaced people because of security conditions,” he said. On the positive side, MONUC’s “peace boat” escorted the first aid convoy from Kinshasa to Equateur province on 31 July, carrying 650 tonnes of medical, educational and other supplies.Overall, the tasks remaining before the UN Mission in the DRC (MONUC) were “complex and difficult,” Mr. Annabi said, noting that Secretary-General Kofi Annan had outlined those tasks in his 8 June report and the parties in the DRC had gone a long way in helping to implement them. They had agreed to demobilize, for example. However, they had not yet provided all the information needed for demobilization to take place.During the discussion that followed, Council members expressed widespread support for the successful outcome of the preparatory meeting and the upcoming inter-Congolese dialogue, which many stressed was one the few paths forward for peace in both the DR of Congo and the Great Lakes Region. There were repeated calls for the immediate appointment of a humanitarian coordinator for that country, as well as numerous strong condemnations for the human rights abuses that were still being inflicted on women and children. The need to demilitarize Kisangani was stressed as was the need to implement phase three of the deployment of MONUC. read more

The Chiefs Defense Is Worse Than Their Offense Is Great

Patriots20112,5426,577423.7403.5.833.813 Yards AllowedYards/GameWin % The Kansas City defense is historically poorNFL team defenses that surrendered the most yards through Week 6 and how each fared the rest of the year, 1940-2018 TeamYearBy Week 6Full YearBy Week 6Rest Of YearBy Week 6Full Year Chiefs20182,809—468.2—.833— Patriots20172,6445,856440.7321.2.667.813 Colts19502,7435,246457.2417.2.000.083 The stomach-turning numbers from the Chiefs’ defense can partially be explained by their offense. Patrick Mahomes and company have routinely jumped out to big leads, outscoring opponents by a league-leading 46 points in the first quarter. That has made opposing offenses play with urgency and desperation — two qualities that will generate yardage quickly in the NFL.3This was not a valid excuse Sunday night, when the Patriots racked up 500 yards and 43 points while leading the majority of the game.The good news for Andy Reid and the Chiefs is that every team that appears on the list above eventually got better. On average, they allowed 81.72 percent of their yardage per game for the remainder of the season. If the Chiefs enjoy a similar regression, they would allow 382.6 yards per game, which through Sunday of Week 6 would rank 23nd. That’s like being The Steel Curtain compared with where they are.Kansas City doesn’t have to look far for an example of how to rebound on defense. The Patriots last year had allowed 2,644 yards (440.7 per game) at the same stage of the season — good for fifth worst since 1940 at the time. They improved that to 321.2 for the rest of the year and coasted to the Super Bowl. (Granted, that’s when they reverted to their prior form and lost 41-33 to the Eagles despite posting 613 yards of offense and never punting. The Pats’ defense gave up 5384Our favorite number. total yards.)Or maybe Kansas City doesn’t even need to improve on defense. Mahomes is a big play waiting to happen, and the Chiefs have firepower everywhere on the field — from the backfield with Kareem Hunt, to middle of the field where Travis Kelce roams, to far downfield where Tyreek Hill hauls in Mahomes’s rockets. Plus defense seems optional this year, with the league on a record pace since 1950 in points, yards, yards per play and yards per pass play — and even yards per rush has never been higher. In other words, in 2018, NFL teams generally can’t stop anyone or anything.Check out our latest NFL predictions.

The most explosive one? Whomever they happen to be playing.Through six games, the Chiefs are the worst defense ever measured in yards allowed.1Since 1940. They’ve yielded 2,809 yards, or 468.2 per game, and are on pace for 7,491 yards allowed over the full season. That would smash the record set by the 2012 Saints, the only team in history to give up more than 7,000 yards. No team that’s allowed even 6,600 yards in a season has ever finished with a winning record.For all their offensive firepower, the Chiefs have somehow gained nearly 300 fewer yards than opponents (2,511). They are more efficient in yards per play — but not by much. Their opponents’ 6.56 average gain is the seventh most through six games since the 1970 merger. But defenses in 2018 are struggling leaguewide: Two clubs this year are actually worse in yards allowed per play than the Chiefs — the Buccaneers (who have played just five games) and the Raiders.Yes, the Kansas City offense is so good that the Chiefs are still 5-1. They’ve already won two games this year when they gave up more than 500 yards, while every other team in the 500 Club since 2000 is 63-186-3. They have allowed at least five entire football fields worth of offense three times — putting them easily on pace to break the single-season record of five by the 1950 Colts.2The Colts hit that mark in only 12 regular-season games. Only seven other teams ever gave up four 500-plus-yard games in a single season. Could any team that’s so seemingly helpless on defense overcome such profound weakness on that side of the ball? Or could their defense somehow improve? 49ers20052,7166,259452.7354.3.167.250 read more

Zabaleta redcarded as Messi and Alves goals give Barca victory over City

first_imgUpdated at 22.24SECOND-HALF GOALS from Lionel Messi and Dani Alves booked Barcelona’s place in the Champions League quarter-finals for a seventh consecutive year as they beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Camp Nou on Wednesday to progress 4-1 on aggregate.City were looking to become the first side to come back from losing the first leg 2-0 at home in the Champions League era and they had chances to reduce the deficit as Victor Valdes denied Samir Nasri and Edin Dzeko either side of half-time.However, Messi killed the tie as a contest with 23 minutes remaining as he pounced on a loose ball inside the area to flick home his eighth Champions League goal of the season.The visitors were then reduced to 10 men as Pablo Zabaleta was shown a second yellow card for dissent after Dzeko looked to have a legitimate penalty claim waved away by French referee Stephane Lannoy.City captain Vincent Kompany looked to have salvaged at least a draw on the night when he tapped home a minute from time, but Alves restored Barca’s lead from Andres Iniesta’s cut-back in stoppage time. Source: LaLigaAction/YouTubeBarca midfielder Cesc Fabregas said this result would ease the pressure on the team following a couple of poor ones in the league.“It was a very tight game, we were playing against a world class team. We knew it was going to be a difficult game,” he said. “We had a great result, 2-0 over there, because it’s never easy to go to Manchester and win the way we did.“We created lots of chances, there was a penalty not awarded, a goal from Neymar that was onside. We take a lot of positives, we played much better than the last few games when we were not at our best but this relieves a lot of pressure.”Kompany complained that the sending-off had been unfair and costly to City.“We’ve got nothing left in the tank, we gave everything. A few times we could’ve scored and obviously that would’ve changed the game,” he told Sky Sports.Going for the second time down to 10 men when it was a clear penalty, it’s not easy conditions to come and play against such a good team. Over the course of the two games, whenever we were with 11 players there wasn’t much between the two teams.“Obviously Messi is an incredible player, whenever he has the ball danger can happen, but we had a few chances too.”With a huge mountain to climb, City started on the front foot but they were lucky not to concede a penalty on eight minutes when Messi went down under a challenge from Joleon Lescott.The visitors’ first opening arrived on 16 minutes when James Milner could only direct Aleksandar Kolarov’s driven cross wide of the target.City were then handed another break by the officials as Neymar had a goal controversially ruled out for offside as Jordi Alba was deemed to have been offside when he crossed for the Brazilian to finish. Source: LaLigaAction/YouTubeWith City still needing two goals to even force extra time, the injured Sergio Aguero was replaced by Dzeko at the break.However, the Bosnian nearly made an instant impact as his low drive was smothered by Victor Valdes. Messi came within inches of sealing the tie with another wonderful solo run on 50 minutes as he teased Lescott before passing the ball off the inside of the post.City then had a couple of great chances to get back into the tie as Valdes produced a magnificent save to turn Dzeko’s towering header over the bar before Zabaleta skewed wildly wide when presented with a clear sight of goal at the back post.The opener finally arrived when Fabregas’s intended through ball bounced off Lescott into the path of Messi and he gave Joe Hart no chance with a nonchalant finish off the outside of his left foot.There was still more controversy to come, though, as Dzeko appeared to have been felled by Gerard Pique inside the area. Lannoy was again unmoved and Zabaleta was dismissed for taking his protests too far as a host of City players surrounded the referee.The English side did manage a consolation a minute from time when Kompany tapped home Dzeko’s knockdown from a corner. However, Barca weren’t to be denied victory on the night as with their next attack Iniesta rounded Hart and kept his head to set up Alves to hammer home from close range.Elmo and Fran from Love/Hate are spending this evening with Robbie Fowler and Jason McAteer>11-year-old Cork boy picked for lead role in Roy Keane film>last_img read more

Latest OK Go music video features toast

first_imgSure, we’ve all heard performers at one time or another sing songs about the breakfast treat known as toast. But can you imagine a music video that only shows slightly burnt slices of bread as the entire video? Now you don’t have to imagine because the group OK Go have released a new video and as you has probably guessed by now, you get a three minute clip of nothing but toast.The same musical group responsible for such innovative videos using treadmills and Rube Goldberg Machines have now turned to stop motion photography and 2,430 slices of bread to make their new music video. These 215 loaves of bread that became stale past their sell-by dates were “rescued from the clutches of certain disposal” and used for OK Go’s latest video called “Last Leaf.”AdChoices广告Read more at YouTube, via Devourlast_img read more

the country but you can’t take the country out of the boy" Krauter said while offering a tour of his farmAfter serving eight years as the state director for North Dakota’s Farm Service Agency Krauter is once again back at home working on his family farm weathering yet another droughtIt has now been about nine months since Krauter held one of the most powerful agricultural positions in the state His attention has turned from implementing agricultural policies on behalf of all North Dakota farmers to worrying about his own crop yields drainage techniques and agricultural equipmentCindy Krauter said that though they are "way out of practice" as farmers they have been able to manage the farm pretty well even through the difficult summer droughtAs his newly grown out beard indicates Krauter feels relaxed comfortable and at home on the farm but he looks back fondly on the work he accomplished as North Dakota’s FSA director"I’ve always been a farmer at heart but then to step to that level of administering public policy was huge" Krauter said "I got to get out and see all of North Dakota and talk to farmers and ranchers There’s nothing more heartwarming than to sit with a young couple who are beginning farmers and ranchers The bank said they were too risky (for loans) so they’d come to us and two years later they’d come back paying those loans beaming from ear to ear"It wasn’t just the individual encounters he found so rewarding He also felt a genuine excitement in working out the details of public agricultural policy"The 2008 farm bill was vetoed by the Bush administration but when I got to USDA we got to implement it" Krauter said "Every day I got to physically see the fingerprints of Earl (Pomeroy) with crop insurance or Byron (Dorgan) with the durum growers in the bill"He’s talking about former US Rep Pomeroy and former US Sen DorganKrauter said he was especially pleased to help carry out the 2014 farm bill which he called probably the best farm bill ever written "It was no longer just a handout If prices are below a point there’s a payment If it’s above no payment and that’s they way it should be" he said "To be at that level of management where I got to implement that make some decisions and get that safety net going it was fun A lot of fun"Krauter is also proud that he brought the FSA into the 21st century by eliminating needless paperwork and allowing farmers to access FSA services online Mostly though he is happy that he helped make FSA a better place to work for its employees"USDA employee morale was not good when I got there but every

see must be freshly groomed perfectly proportioned and perfectly made up even when theyre hauling a 60-lb pack By suggesting that the Army instead use images of women with mud on their faces to imply that women are "willing to do the dirty work necessary in order to get the job done" Arnhart was actively combating the idea that women have to be pretty in order to be valuable And thats the irony So much of Internet feminism is about protesting beauty-based imagery but Arnhart got slammed for doing just that The Dove campaign for “Real Beauty” and the Michael Bloombergsponsored “I’m a Girl” campaign were both designed to raise self-esteem by rejecting images of Photoshopped models in favor of “average-looking” women and both were met with widespread applause from the online feminist

to influence American politics everyday” Rubio asked eliciting the loudest applause of the night “I believe in freedom of speech: I think that political spending and political activism is a form of protected speech” Rubio said noting that Democrats have billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer supporting their efforts “The people who seem to have a problem with it are the ones who only want unions to be able to do it their friends in Hollywood to be able to do it and their friends in the press to be able to do it” he added to another big round of cheers Sen Ted Cruz then got in on the action lambasting Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid for his longstanding attacks on the Kochs whose network is a powerhouse on the Republican side “There are a bunch of Democrats who have taken as their talking point that the Koch Brothers are the nexus of all evil Harry Reid says that every week Let me be very clear: I think that is grotesque and offensive” “I would love to see more and more conferences five times this size 10 this size of citizens of small business owners across the country fighting to change the direction” Cruz added Karl then asked the three whether they would guarantee that their supporters would not have special access to them should they win the White House Rubio speaking for the three said that doesn’t happen “We run for office and people buy into our agenda” he said “Most of the people who support us support us because they agree with what we are doing not because we agree with what they’re doing” Sen Rand Paul indicated he would support a narrow effort at campaign finance reform to restrict the political activities of those seeking government contracts “Special interests can have a bad influence on government” he said “The special interests that I’m concerned about are those who do business with government get government contracts get the government money and then try to get more contracts And I am for some limitations” Write to Zeke J

” She said. and throwing down couture fashion looks left and right. Marsden, Minn. is facing three murder charges in state District Court for allegedly shaking Rylin Marsden which led to the 4-month-old boy’s death The prosecution rested Monday and the defense called Klein and its own medical expert Jonathan Arden to the stand Another fallKlein whose daughter Megan Niemi is Rylin Marsden’s mother testified she ran a licensed daycare for seven years in Grygla and also has been charged with the care of a number of foster children ranging from newborns to teensShe told jurors her grandson was at her daycare on July 23 2009 when she heard a crash from the next roomShe said her 4-year-old daughter Kia had tried to pick up Rylin Marsden out of a bouncy chair and had accidentally dropped him onto a wood floor leaving him crying and with a golf ball-sized red mark on the back of his head Klein reported that she told Niemi about the drop but couldn’t recall if she ever said anything to MarsdenShe said at the time the incident didn’t seem to be too serious a point prosecutors pushed her on under cross-examinationKlein was a trained first responder and had extensive experience working at hospitals and clinics But lead prosecutor Matthew Glen Frank pointed out she didn’t make an official medical report of the incidentShe did report it to Dr Arne Graff once Rylin Marsden had been admitted to the MeritCare Hospital in Fargo on Aug 2 2009Klein testified Graff continually told the extended family he knew it was a shaken baby a term Graff said under oath on Monday he didn’t useKlein and Marsden both wiped away tears as she testified to his character and patience in dealing with Niemi’s other son as well as children in Klein’s large family Forensic opinionArden an expert anatomic and forensic pathologist based out of northern Virginia provided testimony supporting a theory that Rylin Marsden’s hospitalization and eventual death were the result of a pair of falls the first coming at Klein’s daycare Arden’s theory was initially based on his finding that there were signs of two different injuries and that re-bleeding of the initial injury in the boy’s head caused him to be hospitalized on Aug 2The second injury was purported to be a barely more than 2-foot fall from a bed onto a carpet on Aug 1 Arden said the timeline of injuries on July 23 and Aug 1 were consistent with what he saw in the healing of initial injury and re-bleedingArden went over a number of CT scans with the jury and testified that his reading of initial CT scans having both fresh and healing hemorrhages were in agreement with a case radiologist’s findingsProsecutors inferred Arden was a witness for hire — he runs a consulting firm and testified to charging $400 an hour for consulting and $4000 per day for court appearancesThe state had a tougher time putting holes in his testimony attempting to make the case that changes in Rylin Marsden’s blood sugar breathing and behavior didn’t work with his theoryMotions rulingsLead defense attorney Peter B Wold said the decision as to whether Marsden will take the stand will likely not be made until today which is expected to be the last day of testimony in the trialFrank declined comment TuesdayJudge Jeffrey Scott Remick ruled Monday morning against a defense motion to dismiss two of the three murder chargesFollowing jury dismissal on Tuesday both sides argued on defense

were authenticInvestigators were focusing on CIA contractors as the likely source of passing materials to WikiLeaks the officials said The group published what it said were nearly 8000 of pages of internal CIA discussions about hacking techniques used between 2013 and 2016In Germany on Wednesday the chief federal prosecutor’s office said that it would review the Wikileaks documents because some suggested that the CIA ran a hacking hub from the US consulate in Frankfurt"We’re looking at it very carefully" a spokesman for the federal prosecutor’s office told Reuters "We will initiate an investigation if we see evidence of concrete criminal acts or specific perpetrators"Reuters could not immediately verify the contents of the published documents but several contractors and private cyber security experts said the materials appeared to be legitimateThe latest revelations came days before Chancellor Angela Merkel is due to visit Washington for an initial meeting with US President Donald Trump who has sharply criticized Berlin for everything from its trade policy to what he considers inadequate levels of military spendingThe Wikileaks documents may also complicate bilateral intelligence ties that have just begun to recover after a series of scandals including news in 2013 that the National Security Agency had bugged Merkel’s cellphone The consulate was already heavily investigated by German lawmakers after that incidentMerkel last month told lawmakers she did not know how closely Germany’s spies cooperated with their US counterparts until 2015 when former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed the BND spy agency had for years passed on information to the NSA about European companies and politiciansGermany scaled back the level of cooperation with the NSA after those revelationsUS officials have acknowledged that the consulate in Frankfurt is home to a CIA base A facility adjacent to the city’s airport and the Rhein-Main Air Base has for many years been home to the CIA’s “Tefran” station a US center for collecting intelligence on Iranian activities in Europe maintaining surveillance on Iranian officials and targeting potential defectors working in Iran’s nuclear weapons program Serious matterForeign ministry spokesman Sebastian Fischer told a regular government news conference that Germany took the issue seriously but more work needed to be done to verify the authenticity of the documents Berlin was in close touch with Washington about the case and such matters generally he saidOfficials at the German government news conference declined to answer questions about any knowledge Berlin might have about CIA activities in Germany Government spokesman Steffen Seibert said Germany’s domestic intelligence agency was tasked with uncovering espionage activities in Germany and carried out its work comprehensivelyWikileaks reported CIA employees had been given diplomatic passports and State Department identities to carry out their work in Germany at the US consulate in Frankfurt focused on targets in Europe the Middle East and AfricaThe documents included advice for CIA experts about life in Germany including the fact that shops are closed on Sundays and to have "your cover-for-action story down pat" when they passed through German customsOne European official speaking on condition of anonymity said the Wikileaks material could in fact lead to closer cooperation between European spy agencies and US counterparts which share concerns about Russian intelligence operationsThe European official said there was suspicion still unconfirmed that Moscow could have had a hand in the latest leaks US spy agencies accuse Russia of meddling in the US presidential election last year which Russia denies“It’s interesting and maybe significant that this leak coincides with stepped-up Russian attempts to influence upcoming European elections intimidate the Baltic states and other former Soviet satellites in Eastern Europe and destabilize NATO and the European Union" said the European officialWhen a reporter at the German government news conference asked whether it was a double standard that Berlin tolerated US spying while trying to root out such activity by Russians one of the government spokesmen said Berlin had good reason to suspect Moscow of seeking to influence Germany’s electionGovernor Simon Lalong of Plateau State has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is not vindictive on the fight against corruption but determined to recover all looted funds by former and present government officials Governor Lalong noted that his administration would continue to support President Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade He said that the prison had been prepared and equipped for corrupt politicians including him if found guilty at the end of his tenure The governor disclosed this at the weekend shortly after Hon Latep Dabang was returned as chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Plateau State and other executive members of the party He stressed that no corrupt politician should be pardoned until all funds looted are recovered and made available for public use Said he “It took me time to react on what is going on in the Plateau some people are saying the President is vindictive on the fight against corruption when he said some people should go an answer the allegations raised against them Is Mr President vindictive when he asked some people to go and answer for their crime Certainly No “It is a usual thing in Plateau state I said I have prepared and people have been going to that place called prison I am also going to make the place more befitting if I am also found guilty at the end of my administration I will go there I want us to continue to pray for Mr President for good health; nobody is perfect we all know that so that when we see our imperfection we should pray to Almighty God to help us to correct them” Senator Representing Plateau Central in the National Assembly Sen

beyond 2019 saying the opposition PDP is also working to return to power He urged Nigerians to obtain their PVCs and vote for President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2019 general elections elections to

picnic tables outside Harris said the children’s father had walked them over to the grassy spot to make sure they were safe then returned to his seat But when the father turned back around his 3-year-old daughter was goneHarris said Sadie’s siblings did not see what had happened so her father began looking behind trees and in the bushes to see whether she was hiding Then he noticed two lids on the ground – including one that was upside down When he raised it he found his preschooler in the grease pit Harris saidHer death was ruled an accidental drowning It’s unclear whether anyone will face charges related to the child’s death; authorities did not respond to requests for comment MondayThe owners of the Bruster’s Lance and Kara Latham said in a statement that they were "truly heartbroken":"Our deepest condolences go to the family of the child who tragically died Saturday They are acquaintances of ours and have been regular customers Our thoughts also are with our young

"I slept one hour last night and am keeping going on coffee, The question could yet sink the mooted alliance. Many individual businesses could soon endure hardship, China has warned that it won’t yield to Trump’s pressure. Browder has been leading a campaign to expose Russia’s endemic corruption and human rights abuses. I have two heroes in the world: Sergei Magnitsky and John McCain Sergei Magnitsky my Russian lawyer is my hero because he was a Russian patriot who stood up to and exposed a massive $230 million government corruption scheme enacted against the Russian peoplewhich we have since traced to Russian President Vladimir Putins network In retaliation Sergei was arrested in 2008 and tortured in an attempt to get him to retract his testimony against corrupt Russian government officials He refused to perjure himself and bear false witness and for that he was killed in police custody in Moscow In a world where no legal mechanisms existed to right the wrong of Sergei Magnitskys death John McCain became my hero by creating a new tool for bringing Sergeis killers and other human rights abusers to justice As I prepare to attend Senator McCains memorial service at the National Cathedral in Washington DC on Saturday remembering the humane and sympathetic way he addressed Sergeis tragedy makes the senator’s passing even more heartbreaking This tool is known in the United States and around the world as the Magnitsky Act The law allows the US and other countries to freeze the assets and withhold the visas of people who are violating human rights in Russia Shortly after his murder in 2009 I went to Washington to tell Sergei Magnitskys story to whoever would listen The common response was "Thats a terrible story were so sorry but theres nothing we can do about it Its very important that we dont upset our relations with Russia right now" At the time the Obama Administration had launched something called the "Russian reset" This effectively meant that the Administration didnt want to disturb Russia by imposing genuine consequences for prickly issues like human rights or the murder of Sergei Magnitsky I was distraught by the brick wall that Id encountered But in the spring of 2010 I was lucky enough to get a 15-minute meeting with Senator McCain He met me at the door of his office in the Russell Senate Office Building with a warm handshake and a hearty smile I sat on the couch and started telling him the story of Sergeis whistleblowing and the horrific consequences he faced He was so interested that he kept asking questions Very quickly our 15 minutes were up and I was nowhere near finished with the story His secretary came into the room to say his next appointment was ready and I worried that my opportunity was already gone "I need some more time with Mr Browder" the senator said softly His secretary left and McCain turned his attention back to me "Please continue" The meeting went on for a full hour and all of his subsequent meetings were pushed back so he could take the time to hear Sergeis story from start to finish At the end I asked whether hed be willing to support the Magnitsky Act to impose sanctions on the Russian officials who killed Sergei Magnitsky He said "Of course I will" adding that hed do anything in his power to help get justice for Sergei Magnitsky Together with Democratic Senator Benjamin Cardin from Maryland Senator McCain introduced the Magnitsky Act This imposed asset freezes and visa sanctions on those who tortured and killed Sergei as well as other Russians guilty of gross human rights violations Because of the "reset" the legislation encountered fierce resistance from the Obama Administration but in Congress Senator McCains gravitas and commitment to justice brought nearly everybody along In the end when it came for a vote it passed the Senate 92-4 and the House 365-43 In spite of the administrations misgivings it was signed into law by President Obama on December 14 2012 There are now 49 Russians on the Magnitsky sanctions list many of whom were involved in Sergeis false arrest torture and murder Most important we know how effective this legislation has been by Putins shrill reaction Shortly after his re-election in May 2012 he declared that it was his most important foreign policy priority to make sure that the Magnitsky Act never became law But it did Since then the Magnitsky Act has become an obsession of Putins He even went so far as to send an emissary to Trump Tower in June 2016 in an attempt to convince a future Trump administration that the Magnitsky Act should be repealed Because of the clear power of the Magnitsky Act in hitting dictators and kleptocrats where it hurtsin their bank accountsSenator McCain wondered why Chinese Venezuelan or Uzbek human rights abusers enjoyed a better deal than Russian ones Shouldnt the Magnitsky Act apply to bad guys everywhere This was the genesis of the Global Magnitsky Act which was introduced by Senators McCain and Cardin in 2014 Putin was extremely upset that the name "Magnitsky" was on this piece of global human rights legislation In an effort to appease Putin a draft of the bill without Magnitskys name was proposed I was extremely upset and contacted Senator McCain who was abroad and unaware of this development He assured me "Bill theres no way Sergeis name wont be on this legislation" He was true to his word The Global Magnitsky Act passed the Senate unanimously and was signed into law on December 23 2016 After it became law he called to tell me "This was Sergeis legacy and it will save lives around the world" There are now 88 people and entities on the Global Magnitsky sanctions list This is a veritable gallery of villains spanning from Nicaragua to Myanmar to China Thanks to Sergei Magnitskys sacrifice and John McCains passion for justice a mechanism to get justice for victims of human rights abuse now exists The Magnitsky Act is not just Sergeis legacy it is also John McCains God bless both of these men for changing the world for the better Contact us at [email protected] IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the

government’s intention on the appointment of the next Chief Justice of India (CJI) should not be questioned Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on Monday noting that when the incumbent names the senior-most judge of the Supreme Court as his successor as per convention the executive will take a call He was responding to a question on whether the government will follow the laid-down conventions and procedures to appoint Justice Ranjan Gogoi as the next Chief Justice when incumbent Dipak Misra demits office on 2 October "The question is imaginary.as far as the appointment of the Chief Justice of India is concerned the convention is clear.the sitting chief justice names the senior-most judge (of the top court) as his successor When the name comes to us we will discuss it" he told a press conference held to highlight the achievements of the law ministry in the past four years He also said that no one had the "right to question our intention" Speculations surrounding Gogoi’s appointment as the next CJI emerged following the unprecedented press conference of four most-senior judgesin January when they had criticised Misra over various issues especially the manner of allocation of cases to certain benches File image of Ravi Shankar Prasad PTI Justices J Chelameswar Ranjan Gogoi Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph addressed the unprecedented press conference perhaps a first in the history of Indian judiciary According to the memorandum of procedure a document which guides the appointment and transfer of judges of the apex court and the 24 high courts "Appointment to the office of the Chief Justice of India (CJI) should be of the senior-most judge of the Supreme Court considered fit to hold the office" Days before the CJI’s retirement the law minister seeks his recommendation for the appointment of his successor "Whenever there is any doubt about the fitness of the senior-most judge to hold the office of the Chief Justice of India consultation with other Judges.would be made for appointment of the next Chief Justice of India" the document states Responding to another question on the delay in finalising the memorandum of procedure (MoP) for appointment of judges Prasad said discussions were on and the Supreme Court and the government would have to finalise the document together "Our view (on the MoP) is that the norms of those selected (as judges) have to be mentioned (in the document)" he said After the Supreme Court struck down a law through which the government had sought more say in the appointment of judges the top court and the government have been trying to iron out differences on the MoP He said those claiming hat the government was not appointing judges should remember that "numbers speak for itself" The law minister pointed out that apart from the stay on judges’ appointment in 2014 and 2015 due to the NJAC Act issue the Centre has appointed 126 judges in 2016 and 117 judges in 2017 and that the appointment of more judges is in the pipeline "We will surpass our own record of appointing 126 judges in 2016 when2018 comes to an end" he said if necessary, ND)The charges against the hunter accused of helping a Minnesota

April 21 1926 to King George Vs second son Prince Albert the Duke of York she was third in line to the throne Alberts older brother Edward Prince of Wales had not yet married but the family was confident he would settle down and have children soon So the Duke and Duchess of York planned a life largely out of the spotlight for Elizabeth and their second daughter Margaret But when Elizabeth was still small her uncle -Edward began spending a great deal of time with American divorcée Wallis Simpson to the consternation of the palace Kings were not allowed to marry divorced women Rumors swirled about their relationship though Edward maintained to his family that Simpson was just a good friend The king and queen became outraged with Edward when he invited Simpson to the kings Silver Jubilee Ball in 1935 The possible affair was a mainstay in American gossip columnsthe British press was voluntarily silent on the matterbut the situation graduated to a -national -crisis in Britain on Jan 20 1936 when King George V died The loss stung Elizabeth She had adored her grandfather and was one of the only people in the country who seemed to be unafraid of him The archbishop of Canterbury was rather taken aback when he once caught Elizabeth leading the king by the beard as if he were a horse Meanwhile the adults of the family worried about Edwards intentions with Simpson now that he had been named King Edward VIII Their fears were confirmed when Wallis filed for divorce from her second husband On Nov 16 1936 Edward summoned British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin to Buckingham Palace to declare his intention to marry Wallis and make her queen Baldwin informed the king that the British people would not accept his bride on moral grounds: Edward was the titular head of the Church of England and therefore bound by its moral laws Edward followed his heart and on December 10 he announced his abdication of the throne He had ruled for just 325 days A footman informed -Elizabeth and Margaret of the news Margaret asked her 10-year-old sister "Does that mean you will have to be the next queen" "Yes someday" Elizabeth replied "Poor you" said Margaret TIME Special Edition Cover of Queen Elizabeth II Margaret likely picked up such sentiments from her father Albert was to say the least a reluctant king He wrote that he "broke down and sobbed like a child" when discussing his brothers abdication with his mother Albert had not been groomed to be king Hed never seen a state paper before in his life and dreaded public speaking because of a stammer he hadnt been able to overcome But duty-bound Albert took the name of King George VI to send a message of continuity in a tumultuous time He soon moved his family into Buckingham Palace Elizabeth had been on the cover of TIME at the tender age of 3 but now the princesses became a national obsession in the UK King George VI had always resented being the less favored brother so he insisted that no one show preference for Elizabeth over Margaret As a result the sisters dressed identically and their outfits would instantly sell out in department stores Despite his efforts to treat them equally the king soon slotted his daughters into their respective roles Elizabeth was the serious one: she meticulously lined up her shoes in her room every night before bed and would leap up from mid-sleep if she thought one was out of order Margaret was the more precocious and sociable one Despite the fact that Elizabeth was now heir apparent the king and queen prioritized Elizabeths and Margarets happiness over their education Some biographers have speculated that the king did not want his daughters to be able to outsmart him Its certainly true that the queen believed only women who would eventually hold jobs should go to school Apparently queen barely qualified as a career since the princesses received just one and a half hours of schooling per day Marion Crawford called Crawfie by the family tutored the princesses at home Their classes focused more on handwriting than on science and statecraft The two girls did learn about the history of the royal family And at 13 Elizabeth began to attend private lessons with the vice–provost of Eton College Henry Marten They studied the ins and outs of the British constitution for six years Elizabeth and Margaret had a sheltered childhood They attended birthday parties thrown by the daughters of neighbors but any excursion into London attracted so much attention that the girls never had a hope of feeling ordinary Crawfie enlisted the daughters of palace workers and noblemen to create a troop of Girl Guides (a British version of Girl Scouts) for the princesses They built campfires to earn badges Elizabeth also developed a fondness for horses and dogs Her father gifted her the first in a long line of corgis Dookie in 1933 She has owned more than 30 in her lifetime 22nd June 1940: Princess Margaret Rose (1930 – 2002) and Princess Elizabeth (right) working on paintings in the school room of Buckingham Palace London on June 22 1940 Lisa Sheridan—Studio Lisa/Hulton Royals Collection/Getty Images Any sense of normalcy disappeared for Britain when World War II began In 1940 the two princesses were ferried away to Windsor Castle about 20 miles from London for safety and stayed there for five years until the Allies defeated Germany Their parents stayed in Buckingham Palace undeterred by the bombings The queen notoriously would not be rushed to the bomb shelter during raids Once Buckingham Palace received a direct hit nearly killing the royal couple The queen wrote to her mother later that she had been trying to remove an eyelash from the kings eye when they heard the sound of a plane above "It all happened so quickly that we had only time to look foolishly at each other when the scream hurtled past us and exploded with a tremendous crash in the quadrangle" she wrote Later she claimed she was glad the palace had been bombed so that she could face the citizens in the East End who had borne the brunt of the German attacks Windsor was safe from such chaos Though she hosted friends and officers there Elizabeth seemed to live in a suspended childhood She missed debutante season and at the urging of her mother she continued to wear childish clothing through her 18th birthday Her one moment of independence came in early 1945 when her father permitted her to train for three weeks at the Mechanical Transport Training Centre as part of the war effort In May 1945 Elizabeth and Margaret returned to London England had survived the war and so had Philip Elizabeths third cousin The princess had set her heart on the tall blond sailor five years her senior when she was a child and not even international upheaval could change her mind Louis "Dickie" Mountbatten Philips uncle arranged for Philip to have lunch with the royal family at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth when Elizabeth was 13 Crawford observed that Elizabeth "never took her eyes off" the 18-year-old Philip He went on to serve in the British Royal Navy and the two kept in touch When Elizabeth was 17 Philip visited the royal family for Christmas He watched as Elizabeth performed in a pantomime of Aladdin Soon after Elizabeths grandmother wrote to a friend that the two had "been in love for the past eighteen months In fact longer I think" Elizabeth was steadfast Philip proposed to her in the summer of 1946 and the 20-year-old immediately accepted without consulting her parents Her father consented on the condition that they wait until her 21st birthday to announce the engagement The wedding was set for Nov 20 1947 The morning of the ceremony Philip quit smoking "suddenly and apparently without difficulty" according to his valet as a romantic gesture Elizabeth detested the habit because of the toll it had taken on her fathers health The king gave Elizabeth away even though he knew it meant the breaking up of the tight-knit royal family "When I handed your hand to the Archbishop I felt I had lost something very precious" he later wrote to Elizabeth 20th November 1947: The royal group on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after returning from the wedding ceremony between Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh at Westminster Abbey (left to right) Princess Margaret (1930 – 2002) Margaret Elphinstone Diana Bowes-Lyon Lady Caroline Montague Douglas-Scott Lady Elizabeth Lambert the Marquis of Milford-Haven Prince William the bride and groom Lady Mary Cambridge and Lady Pamela Mountbatten Topical Press Agency/Getty Images Several guests were conspicuously missing from the wedding in Westminster Abbey Philips sisters were not invited because of their German husbands The Duke of Windsor Elizabeths uncle was also barred from the wedding for political reasons: The palace believed that if the former king were to attend the British people might view him as a threat to his brothers reign Like Queen Victoria before her Elizabeth insisted that during the ceremony she promise to "obey" her husband though her family and some in the government had urged against it Over the course of their marriage Elizabeth would try to make such conciliatory gestures to her fiercely independent husband About a year later Elizabeth gave birth to the couples first child Charles Philip took to renovating their new home and in 1949 they moved into their first house together That same year Philip was appointed Second-in-command of a destroyer off the island of Malta and they moved to the Mediterranean The couple had another child Anne They lived happily Philip embarking on his naval career and Elizabeth experiencing life outside the spotlight for the first and only time in her life King George VI had long had health problems and in 1951 he took a turn for the worse In September surgeons removed the kings left lung after finding a malignancy The family kept the news from the press but Elizabeths private secretary Martin Charteris took to carrying a draft accession declaration in case the king died when Elizabeth was out of the country In January 1952 Elizabeth and Philip set off for Kenya the first stop on a royal tour meant to be taken by the king When they arrived the couple spent an evening in a hotel perched in a tree and Elizabeth who nurtured a lifelong love of photography filmed elephants meandering below On the morning of February 6 King George VI died at age 56 The news spread across England and Prime Minister Winston Churchill reportedly bemoaned the fact that Elizabeth at 25 was "only a child" Yet nobody was able to reach Elizabeth and Philip still gazing at the wildlife from the treetop hotel in Kenya It took approximately four hours to get hold of the couple Philip broke the news to -Elizabeth and Charteris asked what she was going to call herself (Monarchs often adopt new names as Elizabeths father Albert had done) Elizabeth answered "My own name Elizabeth of course What else" Perhaps naively Elizabeth and Philip had not expected her to inherit the crown so soon Philip had planned for a long naval career before he became a full-time husband and he struggled to play the role of consort He protested their move into Buckingham Palace and bristled under Elizabeths newfound authority Elizabeths mother and sister were also left with little purpose now that the king was gone Their lives "must seem very blank" Elizabeth wrote while hers had a newfound meaning Still some were cheered by the news Margaret Thatcher who would later become the first female prime minister wrote in a newspaper column at the time "If as many earnestly pray the ascension of Elizabeth II can help to remove the last shreds of prejudice against women aspiring to the highest places then a new era for women will indeed be at hand" And when Elizabeth arrived in London Churchill was among the first to endorse her: "Famous have been the reigns of our queens Some of the greatest periods in our history have unfolded under their scepter" Philips uncle Dickie Mountbatten greeted the news clumsily "The House of Mountbatten now reigns" he announced Elizabeths grandmother heard rumors of the declaration and teamed up with Churchill to persuade Elizabeth to keep the name House of Windsor lest she risk backlash from the people against her German husband Elizabeth agreed and Philip balked "I am the only man in the country not allowed to give his name to his children" he complained to friends "Im nothing but a bloody amoeba" To assuage him Elizabeth gave Philip the job of heading up the committee to organize her -coronation He pushed to modernize the event for the young female monarch by bringing cameras into Westminster Abbey Queen Elizabeth and Churchill initially nixed the idea but changed their minds when they found the public was in favor of televising the event It was the first major international event to be broadcast The Duke of Windsor was again left off the invitation list He reportedly said of the snub "What a smug stinking lot my relations are" But the former king who had never had his own coronation tuned in to the ceremony on June 2 1953 along with 20 million other people around the world Three million onlookers gathered in the streets to cheer as the queen made her way to Westminster Abbey in a 24-foot-long gold stagecoach She wore a dress adorned with the symbols of Great Britain and the Commonwealths including a rose a thistle a shamrock a maple leaf and a fern In the abbey the most sacred part of the ceremony was hidden from the cameras: Elizabeth was anointed with holy oil under a canopy Holding a scepter and balancing a five-pound solid-gold crown on her head she took her throne ■

Pvt Ltd More Related NewsPublished: June 25 2014 12:06 am FYUP has failed to understand the philosophy behind the FC as practised in US universities Related News By Apoorvanand This is regarding The Indian Express editorial on the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) controversy (‘Four-year dead end’ June 23) While it is difficult to disagree with its condemnation of the University Grants Commission’s (UGC’s) move on the FYUP it is disappointing to read it hailing the FYUP as a transformatory educational exercise It seems the IE team has not taken the trouble to go through the content of the programme Nor has it examined its basic structure It is so illogical disjointed shabby and trivialising in its approach that to call it comparable in any manner to the US’s undergraduate programmes is nothing less than bizarre The UGC has been unprincipled in its response all along Last year weeks before the initiation of the FYUP and well ahead of admissions to it we appealed to the ministry of human resource development and the UGC to intervene in accordance with its act We were told that the UGC had no role to play as the university was an autonomous body and had complete freedom to decide upon its course structure and duration One needs to point out that it is the duty of the UGC to ensure that the degrees offered by different universities are comparable in quality Why were we opposed to it For several reasons One the basic structure was never discussed at the faculty level and processes were violated Two the structure in itself is academically flawed It proposes three types of certificates: diploma bachelor and bachelor (honours) While logically you should have three different curriculum designs to address the needs of the respective programmes the FYUP sought to do it through a single curriculum which is just not possible Effectively the diploma and simple bachelor degree are nothing but fractured pieces of the honours programme The foundation courses (FC) being celebrated as an innovation are so trivial and thoughtless that students feel humiliated at being asked to study them Gautam Bhan has written a long critique of them in the Economic and Political Weekly also available on Kafila It makes it very clear that the FYUP has failed to understand the philosophy behind the FC as practised in US universities No self-respecting university that takes academics seriously would agree to a change of this nature and scale in barely two months without even allowing the teaching community to participate in it Apart from this we expect a newspaper like the IE to examine the internal life of Delhi University closely For the last three and half years we have been living in emergency-like conditions Threats abuses victimisation (deduction of salary for participation in demonstrations or protests denial of promotion for being critical of the FYUP) crass regionalism casteism corruption and bribing of students by inflating their grades are some of the tactics The only bookshop on campus has been shuttered We are not given permission to hold meetings or seminars Mediocrity rules DU has been so badly damaged that it requires a real visionary and healer to rescue it from its present state The writer is a professor of Hindi at the University of Delhi For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIt’s not surprising that that the BJP has chosen to brazen out the serious charges of impropriety and corruption both at the Centre and in the states rather than subjecting itself to the test of high standards that it swore by because it’s indeed a party with a difference There are no two ways about the fact that the Congress-led UPA was steeped in corruption and impropriety However what was encouraging was that the party didn’t resist public pressure for too long or deflect attention through mealy-mouthed spokespersons or malicious cyber squads Every time they came under attack the UPA ministers were asked to resign and prove their innocence Not that the Congress didn’t try to save them but the party didn’t brazen it out Every single person who was alleged of corruption or impropriety during the UPA ultimately resigned PTI image Compare it with the BJP the party with a difference that promised good governance and zero-tolerance to corruption Despite clear evidence of misuse of office explicit conflict of interest and even pecuniary benefits the party chose to justify and protect Sushma Swaraj and Vasundhara Raje in Lalit-gate No amount of proof was good enough for the BJP to concede political misdemeanour because the party had decided not to give in to public scrutiny Citing legalese the party tried to pull the wool over the eyes of its opponents and the media Its stand was no different on the allegations against Maharashtra minister Pankaja Munde (corruption) Union minister Smriti Irani (fake education claims) and Maharashtra chief minister DevendraFadnavisand Union minister Kiren Rijju (abuse of power) And the most shocking was the Vyapam scam which has metamorphosed into a killer epidemic under Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan Until Tuesday the party was not even open toexternal scrutiny even as people connected with the scamdied like flies The same brazenness of mis-governance was also seen in the appointments of Sangh ideologues with dubious credentials to key public institutions the latest being a small-time actor with a laughable portfolio heading the prestigious Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in Pune FTII students as well as the film fraternity across the country felt slighted outraged and are up in arms but the party doesn’t care The UPA took a decade to decay but the BJP is showing signs of a deeper malaise in its first year itself However it doesn’t want a diagnosis and treatment It’s not benign denial but an undemocratic defiance This brazenness is what makes the BJP different from the Congress not its commitment to transparency and corruption-free governance In an interview with Times of India on Wednesday noted film-maker Anand Patwardhan summarises it lucidly: “This is not Congress rule where despite massive corruption the government was somewhat vulnerable to public pressure The Sangh Parivar is made of different mettle As you can gauge from the Raje and Swaraj episodes they have decided to brazen out anything and everything no matter what the consequences” This is exactly what Home Minister Rajanth Singh’s early defiance meant when he said"our ministers do not have to resign This is not their (Congress’) government This is NDA government" Patwardhan’s opinion is bang on Compared to the present government when there was pressure on the Congress to sack its ministers Shashi Tharoor and Ashwini Kumar the party did resist first but ultimately gave up The Congress could have easily brazened it out by citing that there was absolutely nothing against them on record let alone any charge of corruption Tharoor didn’t make money on the IPL or influence the BCCI to get Kochi the franchise Sunanda Puskhar who apparently had sweat equity on the Kochi team was not his wife then The charge against Kumar was that he tried to influence the CBI as the law minister But in the end they both resigned for nothing more than alleged impropriety because that’s what the public and media wanted Going by that yardstick all the BJP ministers who are on the dock should have gone by now But they wont because the BJP and the Sangh Parivar as Patwardhan says is made of different mettle Going by its record of just one year in office it’s really hard to fathom what exactly is the BJP’s self-proclaimed high standard for impropriety and transparency If there was no conflict of interest in the case of Raje and Swaraj what exactly is BJP’s definition or standard for the term In retrospect how do its leaders justify their demand for the resignation of Tharoor and Kumar How does the BJP justify good governance if its ministers hold up flights of state run airlines How does it justify transparency if it’s unwilling to furnish details for RTI queries on Lalit-gate and resist external investigations into deadly scams such as Vyapam How does it justify good governance if it keeps posting ineligible lightweights and people who make false claims on their education to critical jobs Accountability transparency and fairness are essential principles of good governance and these terms are well understood across the

and fall (Image for representation Source: AP) Related News Scientists have for the first time developed a forecasting model to accurately predict the timing and intensity of West Nile Virus (WNV) outbreaks Much like weather forecasting these WNV forecasts use a computer model to generate multiple simulations that mimic the behaviour of an outbreak and are knit together to generate an overall prediction Watch all our videos from Express Technology Since 2012 scientists at Columbia University in the US have used similar methods to create weekly forecasts for seasonal flu published online; and following the 2014-2015 outbreak an analysis of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa In North America where WNV is endemic the virus is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes with outbreaks happening in the summer and fallMost of those infected have no symptoms but about one in five will develop a fever with other symptoms Less than one per cent develops a serious sometimes fatal neurologic illness “There is a great deal of variation in outbreak intensity and duration year to year” said Nicholas B DeFelice from Columbia’s Mailman School “Absent a computer model it’s difficult to predict the impact of an outbreak even once the outbreak is underway and thus it is important that robust quantitative decision tools are developed to help guide control efforts” said DeFelice In the new study researchers developed the WNV forecasting model drawing on field collection data documenting mosquito infection rates and reported human cases and accounting for transmission between mosquitoes and birds and spillover to humans They used the model to create retrospective forecasts for WNV outbreaks in Suffolk County Long Island for 2001-2014 This model system accurately forecast mosquito infection rates prior to the week of mosquito peak infection and accurately predicted the seasonal total number of human WNV cases up to nine weeks prior to the last reported case The researchers also generated forecasts in Cook County Illinois during 2007-2014 reporting similar results to those in Suffolk County Also Read:Anti-science culture is growing need to engage and educate say Nobel Laureates They said the finding suggests that the forecast model will be effective in diverse settings even those with different transmission dynamics As more years of data become available they hope to further refine their method potentially incorporating environmental variables including temperature They also are working to implement a real-time forecast system “Reliable West Nile Virus forecasts would give public health officials a leg up on efforts to control mosquito populations and reduce human West Nile Virus cases and could even help them refine these efforts” said Jeffrey
