By Donald WittkowskiA former Ocean City lifeguard who lost his job after he narrowly failed a swimming test has been awarded nearly $128,000 by a Superior Court jury in his age-discrimination lawsuit against the municipality.Paul McCracken claimed in his litigation that city officials “concocted a scheme” to get rid of older lifeguards by imposing new fitness requirements that made the running and swimming tests required of the Beach Patrol members more rigorous.McCracken, of Linwood, who was 52 at the time, passed the running test but fell 3 seconds short of meeting the swimming requirements. He was fired in 2011 after failing the swim test, according to the suit.In a statement Wednesday, city spokesman Doug Bergen denied McCracken’s allegations. Bergen said the Ocean City Beach Patrol has maintained “an impeccable safety record in more than a century of protecting the island’s residents and visitors.”“For obvious reasons, the city maintains that it is not good practice to employ ocean lifeguards who are unable to pass the swimming test,” Bergen said. “The same standard applies to all returning guards who work on the beach.”The suit alleged that McCracken and other older lifeguards were forced to retire or take a cut in their pension benefits after the city removed $53,000 from the Beach Patrol’s budget during a fiscal crisis in 2008. The budget cut intentionally targeted the veteran lifeguards, the ligation stated.Lifeguards who “did not bow to the pension pressure” faced tougher running and swimming requirements so they could not qualify for their jobs, according to the suit.However, Bergen said the city unified the fitness requirements so that all of the lifeguards were required to meet the same standards. Previously, the requirements were based on a “tiered” system in which lifeguards took different tests based on their rank.McCracken’s suit, though, asserted that the city imposed the new standards under the “guise” that they were supposed to be a uniform test for all lifeguards.“In fact, the test was a deliberate target of the older senior lifeguards with no other purpose than to facilitate their removal from the Beach Patrol or forcing them to retire,” the suit said.Bergen said McCracken passed the new re-qualification test in 2009, but took off from the Beach Patrol the following year due to an off-season injury. Bergen confirmed that McCracken passed the running test, but failed the swimming requirements when he tried to return in 2011. McCracken then “refused” opportunities to re-take the swimming test, so he was not invited back to work for the Beach Patrol, Bergen stated.McCracken’s lawsuit went to trial in Cape May County Superior Court in July. Siding in McCracken’s favor, the jury awarded him $127,998. The award was confirmed in an order signed by Superior Court Judge Noah Bronkesh on July 27.The award was first reported on a blog run by John Paff, a government watchdog who is a member of the New Jersey Libertarian Party. The Superior Court released a copy of the judge’s order on Wednesday, the day after Paff posted the document on his blog.In an interview Wednesday, McCracken’s attorneys said McCracken was pleased with the award and felt “vindicated” by the jury’s verdict.“It came out during the trial that they wanted to get rid of older lifeguards and used the (fitness) policy to do that,” said Drake Bearden Jr., an attorney with the law firm Costello & Mains of Mount Laurel, N.J.Kevin Costello, a partner with Costello & Mains, said it was clear McCracken was mistreated.“This wasn’t a fair shake,” Costello said.But Bergen said the city believes McCracken’s claims are frivolous and chose to pursue a jury trial rather than settling the case.“With all due respect to the judicial process, we disagree with this verdict. The city is currently evaluating its options,” Bergen said.City Council, at its meeting 6 p.m. Thursday at City Hall, is scheduled to convene in closed session to discuss the McCracken litigation, according to the agenda. The litigation claimed that older lifeguards were targeted, but a city spokesman denies the allegations.
The Infamous Stringdusters continue to impress as one of the finest bluegrass-based ensembles touring today. Soulful songwriting and tight musicianship defines the Stringdusters’ sound, weaving rich harmonies and yearning progressions through every song.The band recently turned heads with the release of their newest album, Laws Of Gravity. To celebrate this new release, the group made a very interesting video performing a medley of original music from the new album. Banjoist Chris Pandolfi tells the story of how it came to be.“We weren’t sure exactly what to think when our manager Alex first hit us with the idea for this medley. It seemed really cool, but potentially impossible to pull off in a fluid, musical way. Then we thought about the nature of an album–a collection of songs that blend a set of native sounds and themes–and it actually made a lot of sense. Electronic acts do this kind of thing, but they have it easy when it comes to the performance/execution part. We had to figure out how to get all the instruments and voices to weave through this maze of different songs and sound cohesive doing it. It’s old school tones meets new school aesthetics, which I guess could be a mantra for almost all the music the Stringdusters make.Andy Hall and I dug into pieces of it on our own and realized that indeed it could be done. From there we put it through our normal band pre-production routine, spending a few sessions working on all the transitions, adjusting a few keys, honing in musical cues and then putting it all together, first in chunks and then as a whole. Much like a good song, it was feeling natural right off the bat, and by the time we went to record, we tuned into the arrangement enough to get it on the first take, which is usually a good sign. It really was a microcosm of the album–same live feel, same musical energy, and hopefully a collection of pieces that work together in some unique way to form a bigger piece of art.”You can watch the new video, streaming below.“We’re always looking to try new things musically,” says Andy Hall. “This EDM style mashup of every tune on Laws Of Gravity is probably the most unique thing we’ve ever done. Not much room for error on this one, but I think we pulled it off!”Keep up with all of the Infamous Stringdusters’ doings on their official website![H/T Rolling Stone Country]

Historically, Harvard has valued the head over the hand, but that may soon shift — at least in one discipline.Under the auspices of Jennifer L. Roberts, the Elizabeth Cary Agassiz Professor of the Humanities, and Ethan Lasser, Theodore E. Stebbins Jr. Curator of American art at the Harvard Art Museums, graduate students, particularly those in art history, are joining a University movement against what Roberts calls a “longstanding, multi-century bias toward conceptual and mathematical, verbal, abstract forms of knowledge over the forms of knowledge embedded in making.”As their class “Minding Making: Art History and Artisanal Intelligence” goes through its second iteration, students are learning how hands-on experience with materials and processes feeds a different kind of awareness and a new appreciation of the finished product.Part of a larger project, detailed at mindingmaking.org, the class follows several summer graduate workshops, as well as a broader trend toward recognizing art-making as part of the University’s “cognitive life,” said Roberts. “The humanities are in the middle of what’s known as the material turn,” she explained. “There’s a lot of interest in matter and materiality, but that hasn’t really yet translated into a clear new way of thinking about making, about interacting with all that material.”,“Maker is a generic term that would encompass both the ceramicist and the person soldering together a circuit. We wanted a term that moves beyond studio art-making or craft artisanship.” — Professor Jennifer Roberts, pictured below with Ethan Lasser,This course seeks to address this tactical way of thinking, with readings on the intellectual history of crafts, as well as visits to artists, artisans, and their workplaces, including an aluminum casting factory.“Maker,” Roberts explained, is a “generic term that would encompass both the ceramicist and the person soldering together a circuit. We wanted a term that moves beyond studio art-making or craft artisanship. Art historians tend not to go to factories. They’re not interested in mass production. There are a lot of assumptions about what someone does.”“Art history,” added Lasser, “is constructed around a finished object, and the power of this approach is in going back through it and understanding what it takes to get to that object.”In Roberts’ words, the practitioners seek to “get outside the library and books for sources of knowledge.” Lasser elaborated, explaining that the goal of the course is to provide “a sense of the feel, the tactile knowledge, of how much physical labor goes into something.”“At every stage,” he said, “there’s some information that art historians don’t generally write about because they don’t know about, because they’re just looking at the finished object.”,On a stormy Friday, students were involved in another element of the course, trying their hands at etching: from the first preparation of the plates through printing. The work is laborious, and students such as Destiny Crowley of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences were spending considerable time applying the thick black ink and then wiping it nearly off before attempting to print a first proof.Speaking while she worked, Crowley, a first-year student in the history of art and architecture Ph.D. program, explained that she signed on to address “a gaping lack in my education when it came to the actual creation of art.” As she wiped the viscous ink over her plate, she noted how that also gave her additional insight into works she has long admired: the Blank Signs series of prints by artist Ed Ruscha, who hails from her home state of Oklahoma.“The aquatint gives the print a very light shade of coloring,” Crowley explained, describing Ruscha’s series. “And the signs themselves are left stark white.” Noting “the juxtaposition of moving from darkness to light, the pitch black of the ink, the deep blackish brown of the asphaltum ground that we had to apply to the plate,” she said, “I find it very interesting that the print ended up being such a bold interplay of lightness.”Working with the coal-black ink, she shared her insight. “It is really amazing how you can go from a really onyx black — almost a void on this space — and strip that away,” she said. “There’s a reason why artists choose the artistic processes they do, an etching versus an oil painting.”,“There are so many different reasons for choosing a material,” agreed Iain Gordon, who is pursuing a master’s in design studies. Unlike several of his classmates, Gordon, who was drying a treated plate, has been involved on the “making” side, building furniture as well as other projects for several years. “For me, this is a way to engage with the making in a theoretical and critical way,” he said.“I knew it would be time-consuming and unpredictable and a different kind of mental and physical energy,” said Rachel Vogel, who is in her second year of the Ph.D. program in the history of art and architecture. “But you don’t realize the extent of all of those things until you really start doing it.“Learning those kinds of chains of causality and being able to recognize how a particular choice an artist made might be a response to something else that’s happening in the print …” She paused as she continued to wipe ink off her etching plate. “To begin to unpack the layers that must have happened in order for the artist to have constructed a plate is something that really can only happen once you’ve had the experience of making prints yourself.”
View Comments Stage and screen star Andrew Rannells is returning to the Great White Way in Falsettos this fall. As a fan of the 1992 production, Rannells recently stopped by The Late Show to tell Stephen Colbert how excited he is to celebrate unlikely love alongside Broadway faves like Christian Borle and Stephanie J. Block. However, he definitely won’t forget his “dirtier” roots in works like The Book of Mormon and HBO’s Girls. “During Mormon, we were wondering: ‘I don’t know if the middle of the country’s gonna go for this.’ And Trey [Parker] would be like ‘Well, I’m from the Midwest. Rannells is from the Midwest. That’s where all the dirty people are from.'” Whether he’s playing delightfully dirty, squeaky clean, or anywhere in between, we’re glad to have Rannells back on Broadway. Watch the hilarious interview below, and catch Falsettos at the Walter Kerr Theatre beginning September 29!

The University of Georgia is partnering in a biopharmaceutical innovation institute that aims to boost market production of cell-based therapies and develop a skilled workforce to work in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry.The new public-private partnership, called the National Institute for Innovation of Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL) will focus its efforts on driving down the cost and risks associated with manufacturing advanced cell and gene therapies for biopharmaceutical production.Steven Stice, director of the UGA’s Regenerative Bioscience Center and D.W. Brooks Distinguished Professor in the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, is the UGA lead in the partnership, which is coordinated by the University of Delaware.NIIMBL represents a total investment of $250 million, including $129 million in private cost-share commitments from the NIIMBL consortium of 150 companies, nonprofits, educational institutions and state partners across the country, combined with at least $70 million in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Commerce.NIIMBL is the 11th institute under the Manufacturing USA National Network for Manufacturing Innovation initiative created to advance manufacturing leadership and restore jobs to the U.S.This recent success follows an announcement in 2016 by the U.S. Department of Defense that an MIT-led team involving UGA was selected for funding as the eighth NNMI institute.“We are pleased to have UGA participate in these high-profile public-private partnerships that are aimed at advancing U.S. leadership in key manufacturing sectors,” said UGA Vice President for Research David Lee. “We are eager to assist industry partners in meeting their goals through the development of new and existing intellectual property, and the training of an appropriate workforce.”Biopharmaceuticals are increasingly showing promising results in treating some of the most prevalent and debilitating diseases affecting human health. But manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals is not without large-scale operational and technological challenges, Stice said.These biologically sourced drugs are different from traditional small molecule, synthesized drugs. For example, he said, the synthesized drug ibuprofen can be precisely copied and characterized, and result in varied generic versions. In contrast, biopharmaceuticals like vaccines are much more complex and rely on the use of a biological transformation. As living cells, they are highly sensitive to their conditions and surroundings.Technical projects, which will be designed by the industry partners of the institution, will be selected through a competitive process and funded via subaward agreements with NIIMBL members.Stice, a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar, will facilitate team assembly for response to the project calls, leveraging years of collective experience in regenerative medicine and technology development. He is also co-director of the Regenerative Engineering and Medicine research center, or REM, a collaboration by Emory University, the Georgia Institute of Technology and UGA. “There is a crippling regulatory gap, which is commonly referred to as ‘the valley of death’ in moving biotech products from discovery to commercialization,” Stice said. “What NIIMBL presents is an opportunity to help improve government regulation, minimize failure, create job growth and improve health care quality, all while reducing costs in the U.S.”For more information about the role UGA’s Regenerative Bioscience Center plays in developing biotechnology that will shape the future visit www.rbc.uga.edu.
– Advertisement – WhatsApp has officially announced that it will be introducing a new ‘Disappearing Messages’ feature through an update that rolls out globally this month. The details of the new feature, however, have been out since earlier this week after an FAQ page created by WhatsApp was noticed. The long-anticipated ephemeral messaging feature pioneered by Snapchat was first spotted last month through a WhatsApp beta version. It will allow users to enable an option on individual and group chats that deletes new messages after seven days.‘Disappearing Messages’ has started rolling out from today, and will be available across Android, iOS, and Linux-based KaiOS devices, along with WhatsApp Web and Desktop platforms, by the end of this month. WhatsApp had earlier this week detailed how to enable/ disable the new ‘Disappearing Messages’ feature on different devices and published FAQs on its usage on a support page.- Advertisement – Users receiving the messages can also still copy the text and take screenshots of the messages within seven days. Disappearing messages will also land in user backups but will be deleted after the user restores messages from it. Given that there are many ways to retain chats shared through disappearing messages, it seems more like an option to clear up conversations than a feature to share information that deletes automatically.Apart from Snapchat, Telegram, and now WhatsApp, other messaging apps to have similar functionality include Signal and also Facebook Messenger that now has a vanish mode.In 2020, will WhatsApp get the killer feature that every Indian is waiting for? We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below.- Advertisement – The ‘Disappearing Messages’ feature on WhatsApp is also different from how it works on Telegram. While Telegram lets users decide the duration before the messages disappear in a chat, messages sent to a chat on WhatsApp will disappear after seven days. Snapchat, on the other hand, deletes Snaps after they’ve been opened, deletes unopened Snaps sent to a group chat in 24 hours, and all other unopened Snaps in 30 days.WhatsApp says that it’s starting with seven days because it seems like an appropriate window for its users to finish a particular conversation while giving them the peace of mind that the conversations aren’t permanent. “We’re starting with 7 days because we think it offers peace of mind that conversations aren’t permanent while remaining practical so you don’t forget what you were chatting about. The shopping list or store address you received a few days ago will be there while you need it, and then disappear after you don’t,” the company said in a statement.The ‘Disappearing Messages’ feature has to be enabled separately for each chat window — individual or group conversations — and can be accessed by clicking the name of the individual contact or the group on WhatsApp. When enabled, the new messages sent by a user will disappear for the selected contacts after seven days. However, the preview of disappearing messages might display in notifications until WhatsApp is opened on the receiving devices. Disappearing messages that are forwarded to a new chat window, which has the option turned off, won’t be removed either. And when a user replies to a disappearing message, the quoted text might also remain in the chat after seven days.- Advertisement –
The draft guidance describes the capabilities and limitations of each type of protection and lists a range of respirator options, including pros and cons for each type. For example, OSHA advises employers who plan on supplying employees with respiratory protection throughout a pandemic to consider reusable respirators. Ideally, employees’ exposure risk should be estimated as part of a workplace pandemic flu plan, OHSA recommends. Employers also should estimate the number of employees who fall into each risk level. The proposed guidance lists stockpiling estimates for individual employees in a range of medium- to high-risk jobs, listing numbers of masks or respirators by work shift and a theoretical pandemic duration (about 120 work days). For example, a retail-store employee might need two masks per shift and 240 for the duration of a pandemic, whereas a nurse in an outpatient clinic might need four N95 respirators per shift and 480 to cover the whole pandemic. The proposed stockpiling recommendations use the same four-level workplace risk pyramid that appears in the broader pandemic planning recommendations. For example, healthcare employees who perform aerosol-generating procedures would be classified as having a “very high” risk, while an office employee who has little contact with the public would fall into the “lower exposure” risk category. (OSHA does not recommend masks and respirators for lower-exposure work environments.) OSHA includes rough cost estimates for each type of equipment, which range from up to 20 cents per mask to as much as $1,200 for a powered air-purifying respirator. For healthcare workers who have a very high exposure risk, OSHA recommends that in setting stockpiling goals, employers consider the number of daily aerosol-generating procedures each employee might assist with. In February 2007, the DOL and the Department of Health and Human Services issued guidance on preparing workplaces for an influenza pandemic. The DOL, in its report yesterday, said it would publish a final version of its stockpiling guidance as an appendix to the earlier recommendations. Request for comments instructions and link Receiving a pandemic vaccine would not modify an employee’s need for a mask or respirator. Community mitigation efforts would reduce illness rates in communities to about 15%. Finally, OSHA advises healthcare employers to factor masks for patients with flu-like illnesses into stockpiling plans to contain the virus and protect employees. The document, issued by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), offers tips on estimating the needed quantity and resulting costs of the equipment on the basis of employees’ exposure risks. The DOL said it is seeking public comment on the proposed guidance. Instructions for submitting comments appeared in the Federal Register on May 9; the deadline is July 8, 2008. May 14, 2008 (CIDRAP News) The US Department of Labor (DOL) yesterday released proposed guidance on stockpiling respirators and facemasks in the workplace, which encourages employers to stockpile the items because of the likelihood that they will run short during an influenza pandemic. The equipment will be used only during local pandemic waves and during work tasks that might expose employees to people who might be ill. Surgical face masks protect wearers from hazards such as splashes of large droplets of blood or bodily fluids and also trap large respiratory droplets expelled by the wearer, the OSHA document notes. They are inexpensive and typically fit fairly loosely. In contrast, respirators are thicker masks that are designed to fit tightly to the face and block small airborne particles. They must be specially fitted for the wearer. Recognizing that uncertainty about the pandemic severity is a challenge for pandemic planners, OSHA recommends using a few assumptions to ease the setting of stockpiling goals: OSHA’s proposed guidance on workplace stockpiling of respirators and facemasks See also: Feb 8, 2007, CIDRAP News story “New OSHA guidance targets pandemic flu”

Carnival board member Randall Weisenburger bought $10 million of stock in the beleaguered cruise-line operator last week. The shares have jumped 56 percent since the purchase.Workers in protective gear walk near the Diamond Princess cruise ship, operated by Carnival Corp., docked in Yokohama, Japan, on Friday, Feb. 7, 2020. Japan confirmed 41 more cases of the new coronavirus aboard the quarantined cruise ship, and denied entry to another vessel as it sought to control the spread of the deadly infection, with thousands now stranded on stricken luxury liners. (Bloomberg/Toru Hanai)Others are going further to maximize returns. UBS Group AG is seeing ultra-wealthy clients ramp up borrowing to place more wagers in what they see as a cheap market. Mortgage brokers to the rich have said more clients are seeking loans backed by real estate to help them repay other debt, invest in businesses and snap up other assets.There have been massive losers among the moneyed set. Many in the oil and gas industry have been hammered by the collapse in crude prices including wildcatter Harold Hamm, whose fortune is down 64 percent to $3.7 billion. Emerging-market billionaires aren’t reaping the same rewards as those in the US and there have been margin calls and forced sales.But there also have been remarkable gains.Leading the group is Bezos, who has added almost $24 billion to his fortune in 2020, as well as MacKenzie Bezos, who was left with a 4 percent stake in Amazon as part of the couple’s recent divorce settlement.

The retailer’s stock climbed 5.3 percent to a record Tuesday, lifting the founder’s net worth to $138.5 billion.The pandemic has brought the global economy to a near standstill and pushed almost 17 million Americans onto the unemployment rolls in the span of three weeks. JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo signaled Tuesday that loan losses fueled by the unprecedented job cuts — many of them in the retail sector that Amazon so efficiently disrupted — could rival those incurred after the 2008 financial crisis. Yet Bezos and many of his wealthy peers have seen their fortunes recover in recent weeks, helped by the boost given to markets by unprecedented stimulus efforts by governments and central bankers. While the combined net worth of the world’s 500 richest people has dropped $553 billion this year, it has surged 20 pecent from its low on March 23, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index“The wealth gap, it’s only going to get wider with what’s going on now,” said Matt Maley, chief market strategist at Miller Tabak + Co. “The really wealthy people haven’t had to worry. Yes, they’re less wealthy, but you haven’t had to worry about putting food on the table or keeping a roof over your head.”It’s not just the billionaires. Corporate insiders have been significant buyers of their companies’ shares, a show of confidence that the crisis will pass, even as the nation’s leaders debate exactly when Americans can safely return to work.The volume of transactions in beaten-down industries, from travel to health care to gaming, suggests executives and directors are more bullish than they’ve been at most other points in the past decade, according to Sundial Capital Research.
THE Upper Ross suburb of Rasmussen is offering buyers huge value for money with a tidy three-bedroom home recently selling for under $200,000.Craig Pearce from Ray White Kirwan sold 14 Amber Ave for $185,000 on July 13 to an investor impressed with the property’s expected gross yield of 7.5 per cent.Median house prices in Rasmussen have decreased 23.4 per cent in 12 months to $295,000, well below the Townsville average of $340,000 according to the latest CoreLogic figures.Houses are staying on the market for an average of 82 days and 97 houses have sold in the last 12 months.The suburb has a high stock of family-friendly homes and represents a huge opportunity for first home buyers wanting to get on the property ladder or the savvy investor looking for rental return.Mr Pearce said 14 Amber Ave was originally listed for $215,000 before the asking price was dropped to $199,000 which resulted in a huge increase in interest.“The owner has done some painting and put in some new airconditioners so it was well presented,” he said.More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020“Anything under $200,000 attracts first home buyers and investors looking for a good return on their money.“Once it went down under $200,000 we had people coming through the door that tended to be young people looking for a first home, older people looking for an investment and single parent families.” The home is on a 604sq m block and features three bedrooms, separate family room, one bathroom and carport.A large undercover patio leads out to the back yard while there is also a garden shed and solar hot water system. Mr Pearce said property presentation was just as important for affordable properties as it was for luxury homes.“It comes down to the size of the home and the presentation,” he said.“If a home is represented well, is clean and tidy, really well maintained and listed for under $200,000 then it’s going to attract quite a lot of attention.”
The unit-link product Skandia Basic similarly ended the quarter with higher returns than those posted in the first quarter – 2.5% to 4.4% versus 0.7% and 1.3% – but underperformed the benchmark in the second quarter.“This is because the reference index is denominated in US dollars, which rose significantly in value during the period,” Skandia Denmark said.Because of this, the Basic portfolio – although it was hedged against currency risk versus US dollars – lost ground against the reference index, it said.Skandia said its investment department had decided to overweight equities in the portfolio compared with bonds because financial markets had been hit in the second quarter by a series of measures from central banks to ease credit.But with Danish mortgage bonds making up the bulk of Skandia Denmark’s fixed income portfolio, fixed income returns had been boosted by a further reduction in interest rates, as well as the European Central Bank’s lending programme to the financial sector at the end of the quarter.“On top of this,” it added, “as a result of positive tendencies in emerging markets, we increased our exposure to government bonds from these countries.”In other news, PensionDanmark is investing DKK175m (€23.5m) in a commercial property in Copenhagen already let to a government agency.It is buying the asset from MP Pension, the Danish labour-market pension fund for academics run by Unipension.The building in the Østerbro district of the Danish capital is currently leased by the Danish Working Environment Authority (Arbejdstilsynet), and contains 14,273sqm of space.Torben Möger Pedersen, PensionDanmark’s chief executive, said: “We see this as a good real estate investment in an attractive location close to the S-train (urban rail network) and the coming metro station on the Cityring.”He said the pension fund had a very solid tenant in the Danish Working Environment Authority – and therefore the state – so the investment would give scheme members a good and stable return.PensionDanmark said, since it sold its entire residential property portfolio in June, it now had just under DKK10bn in overall real estate investments.In the next few years, the fund said it expected to make new investments in residential as well as commercial property of DKK2bn a year.At the moment, PensionDanmark is the developer of six large commercial construction projects, either alone or in cooperation with other investors.These include the Alfa Laval headquarters in Ålborg, Semco Maritime in Esbjerg, Nordea Bank Danmark in Ørestaden, NCC in Gladsaxe and, soon, MTH in Søborg, as well as the new psychiatric hospital in Vejle.Its next big residential project will be the construction on Islands Brygge in Copenhagen, which will include 550 new homes. Investment returns on unit-link pension products at Skandia Denmark undercut benchmarks in the second quarter of 2014, prompting the unit of Nordic financial group Skandia to sell shares in US companies.Reporting some results for the April to June period, Skandia Denmark said its Skandia Match unit-link pensions product had produced between 2.9% and 3.8%, up from the 2.6% to 3.1% range reported for the first quarter but lower than the reference index.The company said: “A significant reason for this are the falls partly on the Japanese stock market but particularly on the US market at the start of the quarter.“Skandia’s investment department has since reduced the exposure to both small and large US companies.”
Stuff.co.nz 7 Dec 2011Child advocates are hailing new laws giving sweeping powers to prosecute all those turning a blind eye to assaults on the very young. The Crimes Amendment Act (No3) becomes law on March 19 and will allow police to charge everyone in a household with failing to protect a child. The maximum sentence is 10 years’ jail. The new law comes as a result of the public outcry following the murder of the Kahui twins for which no-one has been held responsible after a jury acquitted the twins’ father. However, the extended family’s infamous “code of silence” was typical of such cases, pediatricians say. In Taranaki, a serious assault of a 14-month-old, who suffered a fractured skull, was dropped last month for lack of evidence.Starship children’s hospital paediatrician Patrick Kelly welcomes the law which allows everyone in a house where the abuse took place to be charged. The message is that they should have protected the abused child. “If you can’t determine which of the adults in the house did it you charge all of them – or none of them.” However, the law change should have gone further, he said. The code of silence within families was an issue throughout the world. In Britain, the same “failing to protect” law was implemented but went further to limit the right to silence. “The UK has shown it’s possible to modify the law. For some reason New Zealand did not follow through with changing the right to silence.”http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/6097019/Tougher-law-to-protect-children-hailed
Earlier this month, President Duterte urged the Senate and the House to pass the national budget by December to avoid what happen to this year’s budget, which was four months delayed. Lawmakers are pushing back their target date for the approval of the final version of the P4.1-trillion national budget for 2020 by at least one day after senators asked for more time to review the fiscal plan. “If there were no hitches, the Senate can ratify the bicameral version of the 2020 national budget on Wednesday or even on Tuesday,” Sotto added. MANILA – The Senate and the House of Representatives is about to beat President Rodrigo Duterte’s deadline of submitting the ratified version of the 2020 national budget by December. Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III also said they eye approving the final version of the budget on Wednesday at the latest “if [there are] no hitches.” Senate Finance committee chairman Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara said Monday that about 90 percent of the conflicting provisions of the two chambers of the Congress in next year’s budget were reconciled. “We are approximately 90 to 95% reconciled with the House,” Angara said. “Sen. [Panfilo] Lacson’s proposals like placing some limits on administrative costs and having the possibility of greater local projects have also been adopted in some form in the budget provisions.” Duterte was only able to sign the 2019 budget into law in April after the Senate and House took time to transmit the signed enrolled copy of the bill over disagreements on lawmakers’ insertions./PN According to Angara, the Senate and House contingents for the bicameral conference committee on next year’s national budget are about to meet again on Tuesday to iron out the remaining disagreeing provisions.

Officers from the Surrey force, on behalf of their north-west colleagues, attended Chelsea’s Cobham training ground on Sunday night to speak to the Serbia international. However, Ivanovic did not report any physical injury and told police he did not want to pursue the matter. Merseyside Police have confirmed no action will be taken against Liverpool striker Luis Suarez following his bite on Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic on Sunday. “Merseyside Police can confirm that, following an incident at the Liverpool v Chelsea game yesterday, officers have spoken to Branislav Ivanovic in person,” a statement from Merseyside Police read. “He had no apparent physical injuries and did not wish to make a complaint. “This is now a matter for the Football Association.” Football’s governing body is currently reviewing the incident, which happened in the 2-2 draw at Anfield. The club have fined Suarez, who asked for the money to be donated to the Hillsborough Families Support Group, but have no plans to sell the Uruguay international in the wake of the controversy.

SU dominated play in the first half with two goals before clinging to its lead as BU made a late second-half push.The game began with heavy possession by Syracuse. Lies Lagerweij rang the post in the first five minutes of play setting the tone for a long half for the BU defense. Syracuse found the back of the net just over 22 minutes into the game as Jennifer Bleakney scooped up a loose ball and snuck it just inside the right post. Less than four minutes later, Lagerweij struck a reverse shot past BU goalie Cammy Jensen for what would be the eventual game winner.Jensen had a busy day in net for the Terriers as she faced 11 shots on goal, denying nine of them. Orange goalie Regan Spencer helped fight off the late surge from BU as she turned away four shots in the game.Boston’s lone goal came in the game’s final minutes. Following a key save by Jensen, BU scrambled down the field. With 3:54 left in the game Amanda Cassera gathered her own rebound, and shot the ball past Spencer to cut the Syracuse lead to one. The Orange regained control of the game following the goal, tallying two more shots to finish the game with 18.Syracuse will finish its regular season schedule with senior day next Sunday against Indiana (8-9, 3-4 Big Ten) at 1 p.m. at J.S Coyne Stadium.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments
Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The No. 7 pick in the 2006 MLB draft got the first 21 outs Thursday night. The No. 5 pick came in, got the next two.The No 7 pick has three Cy Young Awards and an MVP and never has suffered a serious arm problem.The No. 5 pick is on his fourth major league franchise and is playing his third role. He also has been betrayed by multiple body parts, like most of those who defy God’s intentions and try to throw baseballs as hard as they can.Brandon Morrow, the No 5, is far more typical than Clayton Kershaw, the No. 7. He is also pitching his way toward a major speaking part in this 2017 Dodger story.He has retired 35 batters, given up four hits, walked one and hit one, and he has struck out 14. No earned runs or any other kind, going into Saturday.Morrow and Pedro Baez are the lead-ins for Kenley Jansen, the closer. He came to camp hat-in-hand, knowing that the Dodgers have the largest welcome mat in baseball.“I could have opted out at a certain date,” Morrow said. “The vibe was good, everybody was welcoming. This team has a chance to get to the playoffs. I haven’t been there yet. It’s kind of a big goal for me.”Nor has Morrow thrown 200 innings in a season, and he is three career wins short of 50, at age 32. “I think I’ve always known I’d be OK after each thing I’ve gone through,” he said, “even though I’ve had every piece of my arm hurt.”When given a chance, he has done extraordinary things.In his first-ever major start, for Seattle, he took a no-hitter two outs deep into the eighth inning against the Yankees. No one had done that since Boston’s Billy Rohr in 1967, 41 years prior.In 2010 with Toronto, Morrow pitched three shutouts, held left-hand batters to a .188 average and, on Aug. 8, became the fourth pitcher since 1954 to strike out 17 in a complete game one-hitter. Tampa Bay’s Evan Longoria singled, two out in the ninth.““People were going crazy but I felt a weird emotion at the end,” Morrow said. “I was just gassed. I’d thrown 137 pitches. It was the best game of my life. Then somebody hit me with a Gatorade cooler and nearly knocked me to the ground.”Morrow struck out 12 Yankees in his next start.The next year he led the American League with 10.2 strikeouts per nine innings.“Elite stuff,” said Alex Anthopoulos, a Dodgers’ assistant general manager who was Toronto’s GM when Morrow was there. “Every time he had a setback, he managed to get back to that.”But in 2009 there was bicep tendinitis. In 2012 there was an oblique strain. In 2013 Morrow suffered an entrapped radial nerve in his forearm.In 2014 there was a torn tendon sheath in a finger. In 2015 came the big one, a right shoulder impingement that required surgery, while he was with San Diego..Although Morrow says he doesn’t always have a “cheery disposition” when the bumps arrive, he got through it with a certain detachment. And, occasionally, amusement. He said the finger rehab was the strangest.“I was stuck in really boring rehab for four months,” he said, “sitting there with a surgeon and a veterinarian. One of the things we did was manipulating a clothespin.“Then right in the middle of rehab from the shoulder, I got valley fever, this fungal pneumonia. I’d lost 10 pounds from the surgery, and now 15 more. Last year was devoted to rehabbing and building myself up. When I got to the Dodgers I was feeling pretty good.”Beyond that, Morrow was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 18 and has worn an insulin pump.At the moment he is another example of the Dodgers’ 30-team radar, their sense of when to rescue someone’s career. The Angels are doing much the same thing with 6-foot-9 Alex Meyer, once Minnesota’s top minor league pitcher. Meyer is getting his moving parts together. He gave up one hit in six innings against the Dodgers, although he struggled with control. He could become a rotation fixture, a blue-light special in a game where development is complicated.“Teams draft players and put so much into them, want them to succeed so much,” Anthopoulos said. “Sometimes the pressure builds up. The player goes somewhere else and there’s a clean slate, the expectations are lower.”Gratitude replaces ambition. Morrow seems to savor every loud fastball pop into the mitts of his catchers. “I just like pitching, man,” he said, unnecessarily.
The incident marked one of YouTube’s earliest viral moments, with an array of low-definition postings receiving millions of combined views. It received national attention and appeared on ESPN’s SportsCenter later that week.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNCastillo never pitched another inning in the U.S. and returned to the Dominican Republic when his work visa was revoked. He was 20 at the time and did not know how to read or write, according to the Dayton Daily News.Castillo said he intended his throw to keep the Dayton bench from charging the field, though it had the opposite effect.“I threw the ball in front of the dugout, because I was nervous and I was frightened,” Castillo told the News through an interpreter. “I didn’t throw it to hit anyone.” In all, 15 players were ejected from the ensuing fracas. Almost everyone was asked to return to the field, however, so each team could finish the game. Two notable future MLB players were among those initially dismissed: Devin Mesoraco and Brandon Guyer.Additionally, current Angels infielder Zack Cosart, then with Dayton, was hit by a pitch in the first inning and left due to injury. His beaning is what escalated tension in the first frame. A hard slide a couple of plays later — and a baseball flying toward the dugout — put emotions over the top.As for the broken leg? It came between Cosart’s hit-by-pitch and the brawl when Peoria teammates collided trying to cover second base, sending infielder Gian Guzman off on a stretcher. Guzman would never play in the field again. He spent one season as a pitcher before finishing his U.S. professional career at 20 years old. The broken leg was not what resulted in the felony assault charge. It was not the multiple cranium-seeking pitches, either.On June 24, 2008, Class-A Peoria pitcher Julio Castillo’s errant, mid-brawl hurl of a baseball toward the Dayton dugout, which struck a fan in the crowd, prompted law enforcement to make a postgame arrest. Castillo wound up being convicted of felonious assault causing serious physical injury and sentenced to 30 days in jail after the fan was diagnosed with a concussion.
Coach of the National team of B&H cannot count on the captain, Edin Dzeko, in the matches against Wales and Cyprus.Two nights ago, Dzeko suffered a knee injury in the match between Roma and Carpi and was replaced at the half-time.As the Italian media claim, together with Keita, Dzeko was subjected to the medical tests that showed the ligament injury in the right knee.After tests, Dzeko came back to the training camp of Roma limping and went to the room for physiotherapy.Roma announced that Dzeko will have to pause for at least three to four weeks and will miss two last qualification matches of B&H against Wales in Zenica on 10th October and Cyprus three days later.(Source: klix.ba/ Photo: krajina.ba)

A federal prosecutor in the Jeffrey Epstein case made the expected move in court on Thursday of acknowledging a lack of transparency in dealing with one of the late billionaire’s and Palm Beach resident’s victims. The prosecutor apologized during oral arguments made before a federal appeals court panel in Miami.“Courtney Wild is especially happy that the government finally in open court admitted to violating her rights and said that they’re sorry, and I think that that goes a long way for Courtney,” said attorney Brad Edwards, standing outside federal court with Ms. Wild.Wild, who initially used the name “Jane Doe,” sued federal prosecutors in 2008. She and another victim claimed that their rights had been violated under the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act, because prosecutors did not consult with them before Epstein struck controversial plea deal.Epstein ended up serving 13 months at the Palm Beach County Jail, with much of that time being spent on a work-release program at a downtown office, along with occasional visits to his Palm Beach estate.Early last year, a federal judge in West Palm Beach ruled that Epstein’s agreement with prosecutors violated the law, since his victims were not made aware of it beforehand.As the judge was considering the possible reopening of that case, Epstein committed suicide last August while in custody in New York. He had been awaiting trial on new, separate charges.The judge ultimately decided to not proceed with Wild’s suit.Ms. Wild appealed that decision, arguing there remained potential remedies, such as reopening the Non-Prosecution Agreement, with the possibility of filing charges against alleged Epstein accomplices, who were protected by the secret deal.“If he invalidates the Non-Prosecution Agreement, then Courtney can confer with the prosecutors about the other people who committed crimes against her, and in their discretion, if they believe prosecution is warranted, they could then charge those co-conspirators,” according to Edwards.Although the U.S. Court of Appeals, 11th Circuit, is based in Atlanta, judges sometimes hear oral arguments at satellite locations, one of which is Miami.There is no word on when the court might rule on Wild’s appeal.

Winter market. Just a year ago, Barça de Valverde went on the market in search of a ‘9’ to reinforce a position in which Luis Suarez I was alone. It was a premise not to bring a ‘top’ player but one that came out at a good price and that lent a hand in the Copa del Rey and in some little demanding League match. The intermediaries moved quickly and even the Barça club bore the name of Haaland, an 18-year-old Norwegian boy who was starting to score goals and give good impressions in the Mold Norwegian. Barça considered that it was little baggage and that with his inexperience the challenge could come, so he preferred to bet on a veteran with more media vigor than football. That was Prince Boateng, who at 31 years old came from Sassuolo where he also did not leave a great business card (5 goals in 15 games). At the end, Boateng’s assignment was a disasterjust played and his presence prevented Haaland, who went to Salzburg, from traveling to Barcelona. The Borussia Dortmund It will be the team that now benefits from the goals of the forward revelation of the season.
KINGSTON: Telecommunications provider Digicel has announced a lifetime contract with sprint legend Usain Bolt on the heels of his historic accomplishments at the just-ended Olympic Games in Brazil. Digicel has declared Bolt its chief speed officer (CSO) after he completed his unprecedented three-peat to cement his place in history as one of the world’s greatest sprinters. Bolt won gold in the 100 and 200 metres as well as the 4x100m for the third time in three successive games to finish with nine gold medals and close off a glittering Olympics career. “The unique ‘job for life’ comes in tandem with the agreement of a lifetime partnership between Digicel and Usain Bolt – an honour only a very small number of the absolute greatest athletes in the world have ever achieved and a first for Digicel,” the telecommunications company said in a release. The Digicel statement did not outline specific details of the contract except to point out that Bolt would be expected to interact with the company’s customers. Bolt’s relationship with Digicel dates back to when he was a teenager competing in school games in Jamaica. “I’m very humbled. It’s been an amazing journey with Digicel. They have been there for me since I was 17 years old, and now we will be together forever,” said Bolt. “As Digicel CSO, I am opening a new chapter and will be making it my mission to ensure that speed stays at the top of the agenda.”
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CMC):Leg-spinner Samuel Badree said yesterday West Indies would be wary of an unpredictable Pakistan side, as they chased victory in the upcoming three-match Twenty20 International series.He told journalists here that Pakistan were a dangerous unit and said West Indies would have to play well if they were to top the hosts in the games, which run from September 23-27 in the United Arab Emirates.”Pakistan are very similar to us in terms of their consistency or lack of it,” Badree told reporters.”One day, they give a brilliant performance just like us and the next day there is a lot to be desired. On their day, they can demolish any opposition. We are wary of that challenge.”We respect every opposition that we come up against and we are going to do the same against Pakistan, and we are going to prepare well and execute our plans as best as we can, knowing they are a very dangerous team.”MISSING PLAYERSWest Indies will not be at full strength for the series, especially with a few of the players who were members of the T20 World Cup-winning squad last April now missing.Darren Sammy, who captained the side to that triumph in India, has been axed by selectors, while Chris Gayle and AndrÈ Russell are unavailable for varying reasons. Also, batsman Lendl Simmons was overlooked for medical reasons.All-rounder Carlos Brathwaite has taken over leadership of the squad, while the uncapped Rovman Powell and Nicholas Pooran, along with Chadwick Walton who played the last of this two T20s two years ago, have been called up.”It is a different team from the team that played the World Cup. We have a lot of new guys, a few guys making their debut on this tour,” said the 35-year-old Badree.”We have been here before, many of us. The heat is quite different to what we are accustomed to. We came a bit early realising we need to acclimatise, so within the next week before the first game against Pakistan, we will be well adjusted and fit and all players will be 100 per cent ready for the challenge.”The two opening games – on September 23 and 24 – are set for here in Dubai, with the final game on September 27 carded for Abu Dhabi.”I’ve been here in the PSL (Pakistan Super League). I’ve played with Islamabad United, the team that eventually won the competition, so I’ve got quite a bit of experience here,” the Trinidadian noted.”The pitches seem to be very good for T20 cricket and that’s what you’re looking for – good games, competitive games. Like I’ve said before, a number of the guys have been here before – the likes of (Sunil) Narine, (Dwayne) Bravo, (Kieron) Pollard etcetera – so we’re looking forward to some very good games of cricket.”Of course, we’d like to win this series and remain one of the best T20 teams in the world.”
The student population of Nimba County has something to smile about this New Year as the African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU) and the Nimba County Community College seal a MOU to collaborate in providing access to quality education for students in the county.AMEU and NCCC over the weekend signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for a Dual Degree program (DDP) with emphasis on the English and Mass-Communication disciplines. The program which is considered a pilot academic project will be offered on the campus of NCCC in Sanniquelie.It presents a unique partnership between both institutions and provides a rare pathway for students enrolled at NCCC to earn quality, accessible, and affordable Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees. The DDP is expected to commence in September of this year with two baccalaureate degree programs from AMEU.The MOU was signed on Friday, January 9, at the Ezzat Eid Resource Center on the Campuses of AMEU. The President of AMEU, Dr. Joseph T. Isaac and NCCC president, Dr. Yar D. Gonway-Gono, signed for their respective institutions.The DDP is based on a formal agreement between AMEU and NCCC under which students will spend three to five years completing requirements of both institutions. Students will be awarded an associate degree from the community college and a bachelor from the University. The program also has a vision to help transform the deplorable education system in the country and place it on a proper footing for advancement of the youth who make up over 60% of the nation’s population. The beneficiaries of this program, though beginning with Nimba students, are those young people outside the nation’s capital where such opportunities tend to be concentrated.AMEU envisages an ambitious plan that is on the verge of transforming the education system of the country and provide quality education to a larger student population, many of whom are in the leeward counties, Dr. Isaac noted.This will also help to alleviate the pressure on students who in an effort to come down to Monrovia to obtain higher education have to hustle for school fees, transportation, shelter and fend for themselves.The AMEU president noted that he was happy and excited that the collaboration had gotten underway. He narrated that the DDP vision was conceived when he attended the World Innovative Summit for Education (WISE). Two months ago while on his way back from the US, he had the opportunity to attend the WISE in Qatar where educators from all over the world gathered to brainstorm about innovative ways to impact and reach a larger student population globally, said Dr. Isaac.WISE is an initiative of the Qatar Foundation (QF). It spends millions of dollars each year on the WISE with organizers inviting thousands of educators from different countries.“At the summit, we were challenged to become innovative about how we deliver education to our home institutions and think about new ways to develop education.One way we decided to make use of the knowledge we gained at the WISE is through collaboration like this, Dr. Isaac said, adding , “unfortunately, leaders in education in Liberia think the best way is to collaborate with foreign institutions. “It is so easy for us to call up institutions that we attended or we know of, most times big names, and collaborate with them.”“One thing we are not doing well is to collaborate internally, not just institution of higher learning, but with high schools as well. Even agencies and ministries of government do not collaborate as they should. There are a lot of things that we at the Universities and colleges can do to solve most of the problems we face in our education system when we collaborate with others,” declared Dr. Isaac.So while on his way back from the summit he decided to email Dr. Gonway-Gono and Dr. Levi Zangai of Bassa Community College. “And I told them we can bring AMEU to your campuses, because nothing is stopping us, just our thinking. We can start small with one or two programs so that your students, when they graduate, will not have to come to Monrovia unless they want to or unless we are not offering the program of their interest.”Dr Gono responded positively and the conversation started. She visited us first and we talked and she invited us over and they agreed to collaborate not just in the chosen disciplines, “but in other areas we are going to explore so that we can strengthen our capacities. So both faculties can have conversations and maybe we can do joint research and student exchange programs as well.He admonished his colleagues from other universities and colleges in Liberia to take advantage of the WISE program. He noted that the summit is free of charge, Qatar Foundation pays for everything.Dr. Gono, truly overwhelmed at the signing ceremony, commended her counterpart for conceiving the vision. “As an administration I have really been worried about the future of my students. So when this opportunity came I was really overjoyed,” she said.She indicated that the students at NCCC are very enthusiastic about education. “Our students, I can say, are over ambitious. They are eager to learn. They always want to do something. I can’t rest since we began talking about this program because they are always in my office inquiring about when the program will begin, said Dr. Gono, who won best Community College president of 2014. NCCC was also chosen as the CM of 2014.Meanwhile, the DDP is intended to help address two major national development issues. Firstly, the overarching problem of Liberia brain-drain and the need to decentralize socioeconomic development, especially access to higher education. The complexity and scale of the “brain-drain” exacerbated by the civil crisis and the current demand for decentralized social services requires integrated solutions to build around human development.It has been well established that in order to accelerate effective and efficient service delivery across Liberia, government and its partners, with the private sector included, need to develop and strengthen the capacity of county and local institutions.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Principal Investigator on the Ebola Natural History Study in Liberia Dr. Mosoka Fallah has called on Liberians to embark on the same spirit used during the fight against the Ebola virus disease outbreak through its communities engagement to eliminate rabies from Liberia. Dr. Fallah made the statement yesterday at the celebration of World Rabies Day under the theme: “Educate, Vaccinate and Eliminate’ held at the Duport Road Health Center in Paynesville.He said even though rabies is a killer disease, it can be prevented and completely eliminated in the country if citizens rise up against it as it was done during the Ebola outbreak.Dr. Fallah noted that to eliminate rabies is for pet owners to ensure that their dogs are vaccinated against rabies.He advised that in order to eliminate rabies from killing less than 15 year old children, inter sectoral meetings with the Ministry of Agriculture and health must work together to pay for the cost of immunizing dogs.“It’s important for these things to be put in place because Liberia doesn’t have a good surveillance system therefore we must use the measures that was enforced during the EVD outbreak to save the lives of our people,” Dr. Fallah said.He encouraged awareness campaign programs to educate communities on the danger and the preventive measures on how to help communities eliminate rabies in the country.He pointed out that this venture is necessary because if citizens are not educated about the danger and the prevention of rabies they will not know what to do and how to prevent it .Meanwhile, Roseline George, Deputy Director for Disease Prevention and Control at the Ministry of Health, disclosed that statistics indicate that there are 779 dog bites cases in the country with Montserrado County accounting for the highest cases of 444 incidents.The issue of addressing rabies is very significant to the country because there are many citizens affected with cases of rabies that have led to the deaths of several young people.To eliminate rabies the Ministries of health, agriculture and World Health Organization and others, have introduced vaccines to be used to treat victims of rabies, and the Duport Road Health Center in Paynesville is the center for the exercise.Dr. Garba Ahmed of the Emergency Center for Transboundary Animal Disease (ECTAD) County Team Leader of Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) encouraged Liberians to report cases of rabies and must also take their dogs to be vaccinated.“We need to work together to end rabies and this can be done if everyone works to create awareness and then going to the health facility for vaccination,” Dr. Ahmed said.Several speakers at the occasion spoke of the danger of rabies if it is not treated and called on government and partners to decentralize the immunization process by taking the awareness and treatment to other counties.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
…as EU-FLEGT agreement to be finalised by mid-yearStricter monitoring regulations and better market access for the logging sector is on the horizon as the Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) is expected to finalise the Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) as a part of the European Union Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (EU-FLEGT) initiative, by the end of June 2018.GFC head, James SinghThe GFC said when the agreement is finalised it would create greater access and more lucrative market opportunities for Guyana’s forest products to the EU and other markets.A Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) is a legally binding trade agreement between the European Union and a timber-producing country outside the EU. The purpose of a VPA is to ensure that timber and timber products exported to the EU come from legal sources. The agreements also helps timber-exporting countries stop illegal logging by improving regulation and governance of the forestry sector.The Commission added that they are also embarking on initiatives to expand local and regional trade of forest products by improving marketing, product development and quality.Guyana joined the EU Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) initiative. The FLEGT system mandates countries to use the Wood Tracking System to tag logs and their stumps so that when it reaches the point of export it could be traced backed to the origin to ensure its legality. The system is not new to Guyana since they have been mandating loggers to tag their produce, so they can track them to ensure it is within their licensed agreement.The EU FLEGT Regulation of 2005 empowers the European Commission to negotiate (VPAs with timber-exporting countries; under these agreements, VPA partner countries ensure they only export to the EU legal products carrying FLEGT licences.Forest InventoryThe last time an inventory was done on the forest was in the 1950s and according to the GFC, having an inventory is critical towards better management of the resource. Hence, the reason for setting aside $120 million for the commencement of a national forest inventory.“With so much importance attached to the forest both in terms of timber production and more importantly the whole issue of climate change and environmental services, the Government has recognised the need to conduct a national forest inventory. The allocation (of $120 million) is to commence phase one of a three-year process,” the GFC notes.The monies, according to the Commission, will be utilised to develop modern inventory methodologies, the reporting platform, data collection design, sample plots and pilots of over 200,000 hectares of forest.According the Commissioner of the GFC, James Singh, with the establishment of the forest inventory, Guyana would be moving towards harvesting based on species rather than just filling a quota hence resulting in the better management of the precious forest.“The forest inventory gives you a sense of what the resource base is so if you know what the resource base is, you can market properly, we can plan our operations and we can have a long-term plan rather than cutting on what is available. It also helps with the better management of the forest,” he explained.The GFC noted that the inventory is critical to supporting the Green State Development Strategy.
The Guyana Police Force on Monday issued a wanted bulletin for a 34-year-old man for questioning in connection with obtaining money by false pretence.Wanted: Floyd Andrew PrimoFloyd Andrew Primo of Lot 80 D’Urban Street, Lodge, Georgetown, was accused of collecting a large sum of money from Leslie Glen between November 1, 2017 and November 30, 2017.Persons with information that can lead to the arrest of Primo are asked to contact the Police on telephone numbers 226-2870, 229-2655, 229-2289, and 911 or at the nearest Police Station.

16 July 2013 South Africans from all walks of life are gearing up to celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day on Thursday, with President Jacob Zuma set to mark the day by handing over houses to the community of Danville in Pretoria. The Mandela Day campaign, in line with a UN declaration of Mandela’s birthday on 18 July as International Nelson Mandela Day, aims to inspire people to take action to change the world for the better and, in doing so, to build a global movement for good. Individuals are encouraged to dedicate 67 minutes of their time to uplifting their communities – one minute for each of the 67 years of his life that Mandela spent in active politics, fighting the injustices of the apartheid system in South Africa. In a statement on Monday, the Presidency said the Danville/Elandspoort project had been identified as a flagship project for the eradication of the Bethlehem (Hermanstad) informal settlement in Pretoria West, which was occupied by poor white families, families residing in Road Reserves in the Atteridgeville area, and other identified areas in the Pretoria Central and Pretoria West areas. “President Zuma first visited the informal settlement in the Hermanstad area … on the 24th of July 2008 and again on the 30th of March 2010 to witness first hand the difficulties experienced by the poor white households and to assist in finding solutions to their plight within the framework of existing government policies and programmes,” the Presidency said. Some of the concerns the group of white families raised with Zuma included the availability of social grants for children, the aged and the disabled, the need for land to build houses for the homeless, access to basic health care, public transport and the provision of electricity. The City of Tshwane has dedicated a mobile clinic to the households of the Hermanstad/Bethlehem informal settlement. The mobile clinic visits the households once a month. In terms of social grants, the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is a regular visitor in the Hermanstad area for various services. In addition, one high mast light and 50 street lights have been installed in the vicinity of the settlement. The Presidency said the government had undertaken to promote non-racial settlements, and marking Mandela Day in this way would pay befitting tribute to Madiba, who laid the foundation for nation building and reconciliation in South Africa. Meanwhile, in Mandela’s home town of Mthatha in the Eastern Cape, various activities have been planned to mark Mandela Day. President Zuma will hand over the Inkosi Dalibhunga (Mandela’s clan name) bridge to the communities of Udondolo and Mvezo, where Mandela was born on 18 July 1918. On Wednesday, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga will launch the Mandela Park Primary school in Mthatha. And in the village of Qunu, the Nelson Mandela Museum will mark the day by organising coaching clinics for youngsters. Museum staff will also be cleaning the graves of struggle veteran,s while a fundraising lecture will also be held, with the proceeds to be donated to a charity organisation. Source: SAnews.gov.za

The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now Some projects and tasks make it onto your to-do list or your task manager without much thought or consideration. Ideas, requests, or opportunities show up, and they appear important enough for you to write them down. You have every intention of pursuing the idea, responding to the request, or capitalizing on the opportunity. However, sometimes the things you captured don’t stand the test of time.Here is a quick aside. Have you ever been so busy that you went a couple of days without responding to your email, opening a few days later to find that some of the emails were resolved without you having done anything other than allowing time to pass? Your task list isn’t all that different.If some idea has lived on your task list for months or quarters, maybe it isn’t something you want to pursue. If your task list is already overwhelming, it doesn’t help to allow it to become cluttered with things you don’t want or need to do. You remove the psychic burden of carrying these unfinished tasks by deleting them or putting them on a list to incubate, somewhere out of the way of the tasks that are important enough for you to complete.The same is true of projects. You may want or need to do some project and put in your task manager or on your to-do list. At the time you created the project, you were highly interested and motivated by the idea. As the months have passed, so has your interest and enthusiasm. You can safely remove the project from your list and move it to a master list of things you want to consider again at some time in the future, where it will be waiting for you should you be inspired by the idea again.A lot of us fear missing out on things and have a propensity to say “yes” when we should say “no.” But saying “yes” to small things means saying “no” to bigger things. You steal your margin by committing to things that don’t move you closer towards your real goals and objectives. It is easier to make a commitment than to break one; be slow to say “yes” and fast to say “no.” If you cluttered up your task list with commitments you should not have made, call the person to whom you said “yes” and apologize that you can’t keep your commitment, and then remove it from your task list.By liberating yourself from the projects, tasks, and commitments that you aren’t going to complete, you free yourself from the burden of carrying these things into the future with you. You also create more space for what is truly important to creating the results—and the future—you want.

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday said the State government was discharging all obligations set forth by the Upper Yamuna River Board (UYRB) in terms of share and allocation of water to Delhi.“We decided to release 120 cusecs of additional raw water to Delhi via the river course at the request of Secretary, Ministry of Water Resources. I wish to emphasise that due to acute shortage of water in the Yamuna, Haryana has to shift to a five -group rotation instead of four groups every January. Despite the consequent adverse impact on drinking water supplies to thousands of our villages and several towns, we have never reduced the supply to Delhi. In fact, presently we are supplying 120 cusecs over and above our obligations,” said Mr. Khattar in a demi-official letter sent to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in reply to his letter.“It is a harsh fact that the issue of shortage of raw water at Wazirabad and its impact on supplies of VVIP areas has been raised by the Delhi Jal Board for the past 20 years. The current alleged shortage of about 60 million gallons per day (MGD) is 6.7% of the total treatment capacity of more than 900 MGD. This can easily be resolved through internal actions of the DJB,” said Mr. Khattar.Mr. Khattar added: “As for your (Mr. Kejriwal) request, we were supplying about 1,050 cusecs from Munak Canal when Delhi decided to drag Haryana into multiple litigations. We started releasing additional 150 cusecs from Munak, so that about 100-120 cusecs may be received at Wazirabad via DD-8 in the river course. We have decided to extend the period of release of this additional water up to June 30, 2018, subject to the condition that Delhi withdraws all cases from the NGT and Delhi High Court.”

BOSTON — Sixteen-year-old Evgenia Medvedeva started giggling when she learned her free skate score at the world championships had set a record. Then she summed it up in English: “Wow.”The Russian teen capped a dominant debut season April 2 with a world title, earning 150.10 points to break Yuna Kim’s record from the 2010 Olympics. Medvedeva moved up from third after the short program to add to her Grand Prix Final and European titles.American Ashley Wagner skated last and sent the home crowd into a frenzy with a personal-best score that moved her from fourth to second, the first U.S. woman in a decade to win a medal at worlds. Another Russian teen, Anna Pogorilaya, took bronze.Medvedeva looked a bit hesitant during the March 31 short program in her first senior worlds. But she was captivating from the start Saturday. She landed seven triple jumps with never a hint of trouble, throwing an arm above her head on many of them.“I won’t realize quickly I won today because one year ago I was still skating juniors,” she said through a translator.It was a performance both youthful and mature at the same time. The program opens with Medvedeva peering out into the crowd with a look of wide-eyed wonder.When it was over, she thrust both fists into the air in triumph.“Actually I don’t really have any emotions right now — I left everything on the ice,” she said afterward.Sitting in the kiss-and-cry area, the teenager came back out. She bopped her head to the music as she waited for her scores, squeezing her eyes shut and clutching a stuffed animal tight as the marks were about to be announced.She finished with a total of 223.86 points, following in the footsteps of Adelina Sotnikova, who won the Olympic gold medal at age 17 in 2014, and Elizaveta Tuktamysheva, who won last year’s world title at 18.No American woman had finished on the podium at worlds since Kimmie Meissner took gold and Sasha Cohen bronze in 2006. Even with Gold’s mistakes, her score guaranteed that the drought would end — it was just a question of whether it would be Gold or Wagner.Wagner had the crowd shrieking from the moment she landed her triple flip-triple toe loop combination, and the powerhouse program to the Moulin Rouge soundtrack earned her a big score for choreography and expression despite two under-rotated jumps. She received 142.23 points for 215.39 total.As the music ended, her jaw dropped in exhilaration, an ending that couldn’t have been more different from the “horrific experience” the last time she competed in Boston.At nationals in 2014, she came in as the two-time defending champion then fell twice in her free skate to finish a distant fourth.With Wagner still haunted by those memories earlier this week, best friend Adam Rippon — who went on to finish sixth in the men’s competition — reminded her that in 2014, she was out of shape, overweight and under-trained.Not anymore. “Because of 2014, I’m sitting here today,” Wagner said.She was still selected for the 2014 Olympic team because of her previous successes, but the debate about whether she deserved the berth in Sochi stung.“I have so many people that for so many parts of my career say this has been given to me; I don’t deserve this,” she said.“The fact that I have a world silver medal because of something I did, not because of something everybody else didn’t do,” Wagner added, “that is so sweet.”Skating after Gold, Wagner could tell from the crowd’s reaction that a mistake had occurred. She realized there was an opening for a medal but quickly banished the thought from her mind.There’s a picture on a wall at TD Garden of the podium from the 2014 U.S. Championships — Wagner is cropped out of it. Now she’ll forever be in all the photos from the 2016 worlds, a feat she achieved at the age of 24, when many skaters have retired.“It definitely gets harder. I see this one over here,” she said, motioning to Medvedeva, “do long program run-throughs with triple-triples on the end of every combination, and I just think, ‘Oh, to be 16 again.’ Then I remember that at 16 I couldn’t do that.”Pogorilaya, 17, was the least accomplished of the three Russians coming in, finishing third behind Medvedeva and Elena Radionova at both the national championships and European Championships. But she skated two clean programs in Boston to again finish third — this time against a much deeper field.She received 139.71 points for 213.69 total.Even after her fall, Gold still had a chance to pass Pogorilaya and secure a medal. But she also did a double lutz instead of planned triple and lost potential points because of the edge on her triple flip takeoff. She earned 134.86 points for 211.29 total.“I feel really ashamed of how I skated and I want to apologize to my country and to the crowd here — there’s really no excuse for it,” a dismayed Gold said later.“It just shows that I’m not up there with the rest of the world. … I still have hopes for the 2018 Olympics, but we’ll have to step back and re-evaluate what’s realistic for my future skating.”(RACHEL COHEN, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shares
White remained the preferred colour choice among the Indian passenger vehicle buyers in 2018, with 43 per cent of the new cars produced in the country donning the shade. The presence of achromatic colours — white, black, grey and silver — overshadowed their chromatic counterparts by a long distance.According to “BASF Colour Report 2018 for Automotive OEM Coatings”, the Indian car market recorded a 10 per cent production growth in 2018 as against the previous calendar year. In India, almost all car segments are growing with high mileage small cars, such as basic and subcompact, accounting for more than half of the total production. Moreover, SUVs are also becoming popular among consumers, with the segment making up 23 per cent of the new cars.While white accounted for the most popular colour choice among car buyers with 43 per cent share, grey and silver came in at a distant second spot with 15 per cent share each. Among the achromatic colours, black had only 3 per cent share.Among the chromatic colours, red made up 9 per cent share of all the new cars produced in India in 2018, followed by blue at 7 per cent. Brown and orange came in at third and fourth with 3 per cent and 2 per cent share, respectively. Yellow, green and violet cornered in 1 per cent share each.In the SUV segment, white was the most sought after colour with 41 per cent of the customers going for it, followed by grey (15 per cent), silver (14 per cent), red (12 per cent), blue (7 per cent) and black (4 per cent).advertisementSo far as basic car segment is concerned, here also white triumphed over others with 35 per cent share, followed by grey and silver (17 per cent each), red (9 per cent), blue (8 per cent) and brown and orange (5 per cent each).A similar pattern could be seen in segments such as sub-compact, compact and midsize, where white was way ahead in popularity than other colours with shares of 42 per cent, 46 per cent and 40 per cent, respectively.Even in China, white is the most popular color for the new cars with an overall share of 59 per cent. The strong presence of white can be attributed to the colour’s preference for new engine vehicles. In the Asia-Pacific market, white has a strong iconic value and has accrued 53 per cent share.BASF’s portfolio is spread across six segments — chemicals, materials, industrial solutions, surface technologies, nutrition and care and agricultural solutions. In India, the firm has its innovation campus in Mumbai and research and development centers in Mangalore.ALSO READ | Land Rover launches 2019 Discovery Sport Landmark Edition, price starts at Rs 53.77 lakhALSO READ | Tata Motors increases prices of Hexa, SUV now starts at Rs 12.99 lakhALSO READ | Maruti Suzuki launches new Baleno at Rs 5.45 lakh, new grille and alloy wheels main attractions

New York – A residential building in Manhattan exploded and collapsed on Wednesday, killing at least one person and injuring 17 others as a serious fire engulfed the area in thick smoke, officials said. The explosion struck a building at 116th Street and Park Avenue in the East Harlem neighborhood of New York, where witnesses said they were jolted awake by what sounded like an earthquake.Mainline train services in and out of Grand Central terminal were suspended as a result of the incident next to its tracks. Hundreds of police and firefighters were on site with emergency service vans and fire trucks, as a dense white column of smoke spewed into the sky next to the Metro-North railway line, an AFP reporter said.A spokesman for energy company Con Edison told local TV channel NY 1 that it got a call from the building alerting them to a possible gas leak at 9:13 am, shortly before the blast.Local residents also spoke of smelling gas in the area.But Con Edison stopped short of confirming that the explosion had been caused by a gas leak.“Obviously what we see is something that would be consistent (with a gas leak) but we can’t say at this point what caused (the explosion),” the spokesman told NY1.“It was an explosion and a building collapsed,” a spokesman for New York Police Department told AFP. Scores of firefighters were dispatched to the scene.Police told AFP one person was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital and that 17 other people had been injured.“The call came at 9:34 am (1334 GMT). It is a residential building. The New York Fire Department is in the process of extinguishing the fire,” another police spokesman added.The New York Fire Department told AFP that more than 168 fire fighters and 44 different units had responded to the explosion.Witness Robert Santiago told CBS that he was sleeping when all of a suddenly the explosion shook his bed and the floor.“It smells very bad out here. It smells like rubble,” he said.“I thought the world was coming to an end, an earthquake or something like that. Terrible,” he added.Another witness told CBS that “a lot of people” lived in the six-storey building, including one of her friends.“I’m scared, I’m scared. I came out to see the situation,” she told the channel from behind the security cordon at the scene.“I’m very scared. I’m shaking. I’m asthmatic and I’m not supposed to be here. I just came,” she added.Another witness who lived across the street told the channel that his relatives living further way also felt the blast.“I saw a lady running with no shoes on. It was crazy. It was like a war zone,” he said.“First of all I thought it was an earthquake. I got calls from my family who felt it too and that was all the way up town. Man, it was crazy,” he added.The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said Metro-North trains had been suspended indefinitely in and out of Grand Central because of the building explosion and collapse.“Southbound trains are being held at stations to await further instructions. Northbound trains are being held in Grand Central,” said an emergency notice published on its website.

Enbridge sets out oil pipeline growth plan to cover Western Canada for a decade by Ian Bickis, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 8, 2017 11:08 am MDT Last Updated Jun 8, 2017 at 12:05 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – Enbridge Inc (TSX:ENB) has outlined a pipeline expansion plan it says can cover the expected oil production increase from Western Canada for the next decade.The company’s executive vice-president of liquids pipelines says the replacement and restoration of its Line 3 pipeline, combined with upgrades and adjustments to other pipelines on its mainline system, could add about 875,000 barrels a day of capacity.“These solutions can be staged to meet industry’s needs through to about 2028,” Guy Jarvis said Thursday at an investor day meeting in Toronto.The capacity increases would include 375,000 barrels a day from restoring the full capacity of Line 3, plus about 500,000 barrels a day of capacity elsewhere on the mainline system that Jarvis said would require little to no regulatory permitting.Jarvis said that shippers want Enbridge to continue with plans to expand the mainline system that runs from near Edmonton to Superior, Wis., due to uncertainty about other projects.“There is still concern amongst our shippers about the viability of the competing pipelines getting approved, and if approved, getting built,” he said.His comments come as the future of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain project remains cloudy. The alliance between the B.C. Green and NDP parties has vowed to use all means available to stop the project despite it being fully permitted with a scheduled September construction start.Enbridge’s growth plan is dependent on it replacing the Line 3 pipeline, which still requires regulatory approval in Minnesota where it faces a determined opposition.The company said it could start construction on the Canadian portion of Line 3 as early as this summer and expects U.S. regulatory approvals sometime in mid-2018.
MPs are also seeking an independent advisory Committee on Plastics Pollution which will advise the government on policy… All plastic which is not absolutely essential must be phased out by 2042, MPs will say today, as they launch a new bill to cut waste and pollution. The bill calls for a complete ban on all but the most essential plastics, such as those needed in healthcare or for safety, as well as an end to single-use plastics such as coffee cups, takeaway packaging and plastic cutlery by 2025.

On December 8, 2006, America’s Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) published a final rule on Emergency Mine Evacuation which replaces the Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) published on March 9, 2006. JacksonKelly LLC explains that the “Final Rule was effective upon its publication and makes permanent the underground coal mine requirements of the ETS with some minor changes. The accident reporting requirements that apply to all mines are finalized with more significant modifications.“The Final Rule retains the language that accidents shall be reported at once without delay and within 15 minutes. This requirement is applicable to the 12 types of immediately reportable accidents as defined in 30 C.F.R. § 50.2 (h)(1) through (12). However, the Final Rule amends the definitions of some types of accidents. Specifically, 30 C.F.R. § 50.2(h)(3) relating to entrapment now requires that an entrapment lasting more than 30 minutes or which has reasonable potential to cause death be reported. The Final Rule also amends subsection § 50.2(h)(6) to now require that unplanned fires in underground mines not extinguished within 10 minutes (as opposed to 30 minutes) be reported within 15 minutes. The immediate accident reporting requirement for surface mine fires that burn for more than 30 minutes of discovery is unchanged in the Final Rule. The regulatory provisions should be read in conjunction with the requirements of Section 5 of the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act of 2006 (MINER Act). Section 5 requires operators to report the “death of an individual at the mine or the injury or entrapment of an individual at the mine which has reasonable potential to cause death within 15 minutes of realizing such an event has occurred, and imposes a minimum penalty of $5,000 for each infraction.”JacksonKelly goes on to explain that in attempts to streamline the process of notifying MSHA of an accident, “the Final Rule eliminates the need for operators to first report an accident to the District Office. Written comments and public hearing testimony received by MSHA following publication of the ETS indicated that the old system for notifying MSHA of an accident was inefficient and time consuming.” MSHA agreed and has created an accident report call centre where a person will answer calls 24/7. Calling the call centre, fulfills the immediate reporting requirements.Mandatory requirements of the new rule applicable to underground coal mines include:Availability of additional gas detectors for the purpose of alerting miners of the need to don selfcontained self-rescuers (SCSRs) Installation and use of directional lifelines in escapewaysQuarterly emergency mine evacuation training, including a drillStorage of additional SCSRs in working places, escapeways, and where outby crews work or mtravel, as well as on man tripsSubmission of a training plan and programme of instruction for improved training on SCSRs.Annual SCSR training is to be conducted in smoke, simulated or real, while breathing through a realistic training unit.

A subsidiary company of Minefinders, a precious metals mining and exploration company, has commenced a binding arbitration process seeking approximately $10 million in damages from Ausenco International. This was launched on May 22 by Cía Minera Dolores (CMD), before the International Centre for Dispute Resolution of the American Arbitration Association. In addition to the damages, CMD seeks to recover the costs of the arbitration and its legal fees. Separately, CMD has assumed responsibility for the final stages of commissioning the multi-million ounce Dolores gold and silver mine in Mexico. Minefinders continues to expect the mine will commence commercial production in mid-2008. Minefinders believes it has adequate funds in place and available from its revolving credit line to meet its cash needs for the commissioning of the Dolores Mine until the mine reaches full commercial production.The claim for damages relates to breaches by Ausenco of contracts between CMD and the Ausenco companies, under which Ausenco Americas was to provide engineering and design services for the Dolores mine and Ausenco International was to act as construction manager. In the arbitration Minefinders alleges that the Ausenco companies were responsible for a number of engineering, design and construction problems and delays that increased the cost of developing the Dolores mine compared with expectations prior to the February 14, 2008 study. A portion of this additional cost will be recouped should Minefinders be successful in the arbitration.Minefinders says it is aware that Ausenco International filed a writ of summons in the Supreme Court of British Columbia on May 9, 2008, against Minefinders and CMD for allegedly not paying $1.9 million under the construction management agreement. The writ of summons has not been served, and all disputes under the construction management agreement and the engineering services agreement between the parties must be decided by binding arbitration. CMD has demanded that the writ against CMD be withdrawn based upon the mandatory arbitration clause and as against Minefinders because Minefinders is not a party to any of the relevant agreements. CMD intends to vigorously defend against any such claims by Ausenco International or Ausenco Americas.Minefinders is in the final stages of commissioning the multi-million ounce Dolores gold and silver mine in Mexico. Construction at Dolores is substantially complete. Mining within the pit began last fall and, to date, more than 7.3 Mt of material has been moved and 700,000 t of development ore stockpiled. Ore is now being crushed and placed on the leach pad with the recently commissioned conveying and stacking system. The mine is expected to have a 15-year life as an open pit mine with additional potential as a high-grade underground mine in the future. The company continues its exploration efforts on several other prospective projects in Mexico to build a quality pipeline of precious metals projects for future growth.
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Fitness entrepreneur and award-winning personal trainer Kayla Itsines has been named the wealthiest female in the prestigious ‘2018 Financial Review Young Rich List’ aged 40 and under.The Greek Australian came in at #5 together with her fiancé Tobias Pearce (#6), who jumped up the list from number 40 last year with a joint wealth of $486 million. They are the wealthiest self-made 20-somethings in Australia after enjoying enormous success with their fitness app ‘Sweat’. Their company is now on track to turn over $100 million this year alone.“Designed as a personal trainer on your smartphone, Itsines and Pearce have evolved what was a Bikini Body Guide e-book into Apple’s largest grossing health and fitness app,” writes the AFR.“The app, which promotes 28-minute workouts, has expanded to offer training guides from US-based Kelsey Wells and yoga sessions with Sjana Elise Earp. With a combined social media reach of more than 35 million people, Sweat is available in seven languages in 155 countries. More than 30 million users have created an account. The subscription based app generated $90 million in revenue in 2017-18.”The dynamic duo who were engaged earlier in the year, have built a fitness empire with more than 10 million followers on Instagram and Facebook, which includes models and Hollywood celebrities delivering an inspirational success story with phenomenal revenue and profit growth in a short space of time.Kayla Itsines on the cover of The Australian Financial Review Magazine. Photo: SuppliedBased in Adelaide, the 27-year-old Greek Australian personal trainer started her journey towards fame eight years ago when she launched her own training and nutrition guide #BBG (BikiniBodyGuides) after completing a personal training course at the Australian Institute of Fitness.Soon after, she developed a 28-minute high intensity workout targeting the whole body, and in 2015 her first e-book and #sweatwithkayla application were released.Within a few years, Kayla created a global community while travelling around Europe, the US and Australia, hosting boot camps and meeting her followers, transforming the bodies of thousands of women all over the globe, inspiring them to achieve their ultimate goal; a healthy lifestyle and body confidence.Kayla and Tobi’s Bikini Body Training Company also won the national prize as Australia’s emerging business of 2015 at the prestigious Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.Reflecting on her success, Itsines, who has no intention of leaving South Australia told the AFR that she wished she knew earlier that anything was possible.“In Adelaide you are not told you have the opportunity to be a superstar. If I was to grow up somewhere like New York, everyone there is very confident, and everyone wants to make it,” she says.“If I could change anything, I would talk about the opportunity of being an entrepreneur in schools. I didn’t even know what that word meant in school. I was [like], ‘what is that word?’ ‘Oh, you know, someone who goes off and does their own thing’. I was [like], ‘what?’,” said Itsines who together with Pearce owns more than 12 investment properties in SA.The famous trainer celebrates her Greek heritage through her social media and particularly enjoys posting random videos of her Greek grandparents who seem to be part of her everyday life. She is an advocate for the Mediterranean diet, indulges in Greek coffee and admits that one of her biggest weaknesses is her grandmother’s traditional Greek cooking.Kayla with her yiayia and pappou. Photo: FacebookMeanwhile fellow Greek Australian entrepreneur Scott Stavretis also made AFR‘s prestigious list, ranking number 36 with his outsourcing and call centre business, Acquire BPO.A serial entrepreneur, he started at the age of 16 by establishing the first internet service provider on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula 22 years ago in 1996. Now at 38, Stavretis is at the helm of or owns significant stakes in five technology-focused companies.The chief executive of Acquire BPO, made his debut on BRW Young Rich in 2016 with an estimated $46 million fortune. Today he sits at $69 million.The dynamic entrepreneur also operates Degunt, a cloud-based bookkeeping company and SHORE Solutions, a Philippines-based sister company to Acquire BPO that was bought in 2014.However, according to AFR, Stavretis’ biggest asset is Acquire BPO, which turns over more than $100 million annually, providing call centre support for companies in Australia, such as Flexigroup, Vocus Communications and Europcar, and in the US for the likes of cloud-based phone system company RingCentral, a New York Stock Exchange-listed company with market capitalisation of more than $2 billion.For a record seventh year, Atlassian co-founders Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar (joint #1 & #2) top the combined 2018 Financial Review Young Rich List with a record $14.2 billion.Scott Stavretis ranked number 36.Interestingly, only 10 women made the cut in this year’s list overall, just one up from the nine that made the list in 2017 and eight in 2016, showing a serious gap in the number of self-made, super-wealthy Australian women.
Aston Villa manager Dean Smith insists his team has what it takes to defeat Leeds United when both sides face off next weekend.Villa have been in good form of late, having won four of their last seven games in the Sky Bet Championship, and are currently unbeaten since their loss to Queens Park Rangers in October.Since the appointment of Smith as manager, The Villans have jumped from 17th to eighth on the league standings and have the promotion playoff spots within grasp. Aston Villa’s upcoming opponents, Leeds, are also on a good run of form and have won their last five games to return to the top of the table.Smith, however, insists his team are looking forward to the game against Leeds and believe they can beat the league leaders.Aston Villa explains why they spent so much money on players Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Aston Villa’s chief executive, the team needed to spend £144.5 million on 12 players in order to stay competitive.“It’s another one we’re looking forward to”, Smith told Aston Villa’s official website.“It’s Leeds United at home in front of another close to full house.” “They are in the top two doing well.” ”But we believe we can beat them.”Aston Villa are currently three points behind sixth placed Middlesbrough, and will hope to close the gap to teams above them next weekend.
This is the third in a series on Ascot’s mining proposal near Mount St. Helens.Part 1: http://bit.ly/WpQKkw Part 2: http://bit.ly/WpQLooDuring the last 30 years, mining interests have tried and failed to kick start mining efforts on 900 acres just outside the boundary of the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. Ultimately, they all ran into the same problem: It just didn’t pay to mine on Goat Mountain.In fact, in a little-noticed 1993 legal decision, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management denied a prospecting company, Vanderbilt Gold Corp., permission to explore the claim after an agency review found mineral concentrations too low to be profitable and that mining the area would lose nearly $200 million over its life.Now, a Canadian prospecting company, Ascot Resources Ltd., says record high copper prices could help it make good on the same claims when it resumes test drilling for copper, gold, silver and molybdenum this summer. Ascot hopes its core samples will show the deposits are richer than previous studies show.Ascot’s chances for success, however, may be overwhelmingly low.

SEATTLE — Officials in Washington state took their first stab at setting rules for the state’s new marijuana industry Thursday, nearly eight months after voters here legalized pot for adults.Among the preliminary regulations: They want to track marijuana from “seed to store.” They’re putting a cap on the number of retail outlets in each county, but not on the number of licensed pot growers or processors.No sales of what the board described as marijuana extracts, such as hash, would be allowed — unless the extract is infused into another product — and all pot-related businesses would have to have security systems, 24-hour video surveillance and insurance.On Thursday, the state released its first draft of guidelines for its nascent pot business. Among the highlights:o All pot-related businesses would have to have security systems, 24-hour video surveillance and insurance.o No sales of marijuana extracts, such as hash, would be allowed — unless the extract is infused into another product.o Marijuana labeling would also include serving sizes, use-by date, allergy info.o Any marijuana product sold at a state-licensed stores would carry a label noting that it “may be habit forming,” accompanied by a logo of Washington state — with a marijuana-leaf silhouette smack in the middle, shown above.— The Associated PressAny marijuana product sold at state-licensed stores would carry a label noting that it “may be habit forming” and that “this product is unlawful outside of Washington state” — accompanied by an official pot logo, featuring Washington state with a marijuana-leaf silhouette smack in the middle.
More than two-fifths (42%) of employee respondents who have taken up a death-in-service benefit do not know how much would be paid out to their loved ones in the event of them passing away, according to research by Direct Line Life Insurance.Its survey, which canvassed the opinions of 2,004 individuals and 100 senior HR professionals whose organisations offer a death-in-service benefit, also found that 17% of employee respondents do not know what this benefit is, and 11% do not know if they would be covered by their employer.The research also found:89% of employer respondents offer employees a death-in-service benefit, with 5% of employers paying less than a years’ wages, 18% paying three to four times an employee’s salary and 5% paying more than five times an employee’s annual salary as standard.68% of employer respondents who offer this benefit increase the cover for employees in senior management positions.43% of employer respondents set the qualifying period for their death-in-service benefit as the completion of a probation period, compared to 40% who make it available from an employee’s first day and 18% who do not pay out until an employee has been at the organisation for at least one year.34% of employee respondents think they would be automatically entitled to receive a death-in-service benefit within their probation period.43% of employee respondents believe their death-in-service benefit will only pay out if they were to die in a workplace-related incident.14% of employer respondents would not release funds for up to three months or more, and 32% would not automatically pay out a death-in-service benefit to an employee’s chosen nominee, instead paying into a discretionary trust.Jane Morgan (pictured), business manager at Direct Line Life Insurance, said: “There is a great deal of confusion and misunderstanding regarding death-in-service. While it would be an invaluable employee benefit for many families if the worst were to happen, the amount paid out is unlikely to cover their outstanding mortgage balance. This could leave families in a financially vulnerable position, especially having lost an income, adding extra pressure at an already emotional and difficult time.”

Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals June 24, 2014 For all its good, sometimes advances in technology can create new forms of paranoia. Take drones for example. They can be used for taking selfies (“dronies”) or walking the dog, or perhaps someday to deliver goods to-door-door. On the flip side, they can and have been used by the military to spy on and attack people.For those who fear being targeted by anyone — military, private organization or civilian — with a drone, there’s one startup that wants to ease your anxieties. Enter: Domestic Drone Countermeasures (DDC). The group has a Kickstarter page where it describes the threat drones pose and the solution the company has developed.”Drones are becoming more capable all the time and this is why it’s alarming,” the Oregon-based startup says. “They fly with payloads like still cameras, video cameras, infrared detectors, thermal detectors, among other things, and they are already being used for surveillance.Related: This Tiny, Whip-Tailed Robot Can Administer Meds Anywhere In the Body”In the past year,” the company continues, “we developed hardware that can detect drones and have filed patents to safeguard our technology.”The anti-drone system consists of three boxes: a primary command and control module and two detection sensor nodes. Basically, these boxes use a simple Wi-Fi connection to create a mesh grid network that can detect drones flying nearby. When a drone is detected, the system can either sound an alarm or send a notification to a mobile device.For a look at how it works, here’s a video:Related: A ‘Smart’ Cup That Knows What You’re Drinking — And Counts the CaloriesThe command and control module can communicate with nodes up to 200 feet away, the company says. The nodes can usually detect drones within 50 feet in all directions. So, the more nodes that are installed in an area, the larger the detection grid becomes. The DDC’s anti-drone system is not equipped to counter military drones, which “fly too high and are too sophisticated,” the company says. “Our intent is to keep your privacy safe from your neighbors and people you may not know who are flying small drones near your home or office. The Personal Drone Detection Systems are intended to counter small, personal drones with cameras and other sensors that are not being regulated.”The DDC’s Kickstarter page is aiming to raise $8,500 over the next 21 days. So far, backers have pledged only about $1,400. DDC says it aims to start shipping the system by May 2015.Related: A Venture Capital Firm Just Named an Algorithm to Its Board of Directors 3 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

But U.S. home prices remain still about 20 percent below that pre-recession peak, if you factor in inflation.Ralph McLaughlin, chief economist at Trulia, in fact, said that “crossing this threshold is largely symbolic.”Still, the numbers from September are up, and for the 53rd straight month. According to the index, home prices climbed 5.5 percent compared to a year ago, and 5.1 percent from August. Seattle and Portland led the way, each gaining 11 percent year-over-year. Twelve cities reported greater price increases in the year ending in September versus the year ending in August.The new peak, said David Blitzer, managing director and chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones, “will be seen as marking a shift from the housing recovery to the hoped-for start of a new advance.”Miami, Tampa, Phoenix, and Las Vegas, which experienced the biggest booms, remain well below their all-time highs, Blitzer said.“Other housing indicators are also giving positive signals,” he said. “Sales of existing and new homes are rising and housing starts at an annual rate of 1.3 million units are at a post-recession peak.”For McLaughlin, the index numbers are more ambiguous.“Home prices reaching their nominal pre-recession peaks brings mixed news for the housing market,” McLaughlin said. “It’s good news for homeowners who are no longer underwater, but not so great news for homebuyers who have seen prices outpace incomes for most of the housing market recovery.”McLaughlin called the housing recovery “uneven,” pointing out that markets that reached their pre-recession peaks are almost all in the South or West.”And within those markets,” he said, “it’s mostly high-end homes that have surpassed the peak.”According to the index, while most markets between Dallas and Seattle climbed 8 percent or higher since last year, markets between Cleveland and Boston climbed an average of about 4 percent. New York, though up since last year, showed the lowest annual price gains at just under 2 percent.Click here to view the complete Case-Shiller Home Price Indices for September.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer celebrates after the Cardinals defeated the Cleveland Browns 34-20 in an NFL football game Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/David Richard) Your browser does not support the audio element. 0 Comments Share “[Bruce Arians] had a frank conversation with us,” defensive lineman Frostee Rucker said of what happened in the locker room at halftime. “He had a frank conversation with us about how we were playing in the first half. Obviously, we weren’t playing up to our standard and we had to turn that around quick. He barks and we listen.”“The first half (we were) sluggish,” safety Tyrann Mathieu said. “I don’t know what it was, but it wasn’t our type of football. We got a mouthful from B.A. at halftime and a lot of guys stepped up in the second half and we started making plays.”The Cardinals forced a Browns punt on the opening possession of the second half, then went on to score a touchdown four plays into their first drive of the third quarter. After forcing another punt the next time Cleveland had the ball, the Cardinals needed just four plays to score again, retaking a lead they would never relinquish.To say a 34-20 game was a rout would be inaccurate, but the Cardinals really dominated the second half. The Browns tallied just 98 yards of net offense over the final two quarters, with the Cardinals forcing a pair of turnovers. The defense harassed and battered McCown while being stout against the run, and ended the only two drives that saw the Browns cross into Arizona territory with turnovers. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires But something changed for them at halftime, and as the team reaches the midway point of its season, there is a hope — maybe even a belief — that what you saw in the second half is more indicative of what kind of team the Cardinals really are.“Six and two is not bad in the NFL,” Mathieu said. “Those two losses are games that we felt like we were in control of, and at some point in the game, we had an opportunity to win.“Going forward, we need to start fast, play consistent for four quarters and win the turnover battle with these teams coming up on our schedule.” – / 18 TEMPE, Ariz. — Through 30 minutes of football Sunday, the Arizona Cardinals trailed the Cleveland Browns by a score of 20-10 and looked rather poor in the process.Though they had gained 225 net yards, the Cardinals lost a pair of fumbles and seemed to have no answer for the Josh McCown-led Browns offense.When play resumed, as the picture quality on TV looked worse for many viewers around the Valley, the team itself looked better. Much, much better. Top Stories LISTEN: Bruce Arians, Cardinals head coach Arizona also did not punt in the second half, scoring on five of seven possessions (with the final one being a pair of kneel downs as time expired).“We just pulled our heads out,” receiver Larry Fitzgerald said of what changed. “We played pretty crappy in the first half. First good drive started off, and it was just play after play after play not executing. Coach, we got in the locker room, he was pretty upset as he should have been. We were able to play much better defense. Came out third quarter, got a stop. We were able to make some plays down the field, got it going. It was great to see Troy (Niklas) in there a couple of times and started rolling from there.”What exactly Arians said will not be known by the public, nor is it likely fit for public consumption. Suffice to say whatever it was, it achieved the desired result. However, the third-year coach downplayed what he told the team.“Oh yeah,” he said when asked if too much is being made of it. “It wasn’t even close to when I was young.”If there is something to take away from the game besides Arians’ apparent way with words, it is that the Cardinals are definitely better than the Browns. Their records a good judge of their talent, the road team found a way to struggle for most of 30 minutes and overcome a quartet of turnovers to win rather comfortably. It’s not exactly a recipe for consistent success, but in this case, the effort allowed the Cardinals to reach their bye week with a 6-2 record and a lead in the NFC West. To some, needing to flip the proverbial switch in order to win could be considered a bad thing; to others, the ability to do exactly that could be seen as a positive. Then again, when a deficit seems to be more about what a team is doing to itself rather than what is being done to it, perhaps it makes sense that things could quickly and easily turn around.“It’s very hard to flip it,” Arians said. “When you look at the tape, it was just a few plays in the first half. The turnover where we gave the ball on the 9-yard line. We gave up two great plays. We hold them to a 3rd-and-9 and we gave up a post pattern. We had good pressure. We fumbled the ball going in for a touchdown, but there were a lot of really good things in the first half. It was just a few plays like a 50-yard pass on an easy slant route to a running back, where you cannot give up inside leverage and bite on that fake and miss a tackle. It should have been a 10-yard gain at the worst and it was a 50-yard gain, so there were a few plays.“It wasn’t a lackluster performance. It was just a few plays.”The Cardinals have lost two games this season. There was a common thread throughout them, and that was turnovers along with penalties and missed opportunities inside the red zone. Sunday in Cleveland, Arizona seemed to be on its way to suffering a third defeat to a team that it probably should have beaten because of, well, turnovers.

(AP Photo/David Kohl, File) Esports are coming to ESPN.The network will air the inaugural Overwatch League Grand Finals in prime time this month as part of a multiyear agreement to bring esports to the biggest sports platform on American television.Disney and Blizzard Entertainment announced plans Wednesday to broadcast the OWL’s playoffs and championship on ESPN, ABC and Disney XD. The Grand Finals on July 27 will be shown live on ESPN, marking the first time the network will carry esports in prime time.“We think that really reflects the commitment they’re making to the category,” said Pete Vlastelica, President and CEO of Activision Blizzard Esports Leagues.Coverage begins Wednesday with the playoffs on Disney XD and ESPN3. There will be 10 hours total of Grand Finals coverage, including a recap show July 29 on ABC. Disney’s networks will also broadcast OWL matches next season. Financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed.Overwatch is a team-based first-person shooter, with two teams of six players competing over various objectives. The OWL has city-based teams in four countries, including nine US franchises plus teams in London, Seoul and Shanghai. The league plans to expand after its first season.“There’s no doubt that this partnership will increase the reach of our league content,” Vlastelica said. “And open up, have access to a new audience that maybe doesn’t spend so much time streaming content online, but who has heard of esports and is familiar with gaming and who’s a big sports fan.”The playoffs will take place at Blizzard’s esports arena in Burbank, California, and the Grand Finals will be held at the Barclays Center in New York.The OWL had been streaming all matches on Twitch, a livestream platform owned by Amazon, and it will continue to provide simulcasts there through at least 2019. The league signed a two-year agreement with Twitch prior to this season and drew 10 million viewers to the platform on its opening weekend, besting Amazon’s NFL “Thursday Night Football” numbers from the 2017 season.This won’t be ESPN’s first foray into events that aren’t strictly sports. Its programming has included the Scripps National Spelling Bee, the World Series of Poker and the Drum Corps International championship. ESPN also aired part of the FIFA Ultimate Team Championship Series in 2017, and it previously partnered with Blizzard Entertainment on “Heroes of the Dorm,” an esports tournament for college gamers.Esports have made headway into the mainstream over the past year, with the International Olympic Committee stating its interest in adding video games last fall. The IOC is set to host an esports forum this month to explore adding video games to the Olympics.___Follow Jake Seiner on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Jake_Seiner Esports on ESPN: Overwatch championship to air in prime time by Jake Seiner, The Associated Press Posted Jul 11, 2018 8:19 am PDT Last Updated Jul 11, 2018 at 10:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
PAPHOS municipality on Monday denied it was dumping an iconic bus that had been used by fighters resisting Eoka B coupists in 1974, and in which four people were killed.Locals and members of the Paphos Green party had publicly voiced concerns that the vehicle had been discovered at a rubbish tip in Geroskipou and was due to go for recycling, but a spokesman for Paphos municipality robustly refuted the allegation.“This is simply not true, the bus is being stored at a municipality storage facility in Geroskipou and not anywhere near a rubbish dump,” he told the Cyprus Mail.The confusion arose after the bus was moved from the Ahmet Rashid Park in central Paphos, where it had remained for years, whilst renovation of the space was underway.“After discussions with the resistance association a few months ago, we informed them that the vehicle would be moved to our facility for a time whilst we discussed a permanent place in Paphos where the bus could go on display,” the spokesman said.He added that the vehicle had been previously been in an open area of the facility, but was moved to a covered area a few days ago.“It will be transferred to a new permanent location in the near future,” he said.The bus is a symbol of the Paphos resistance against the coup and serves as a piece of history to the tragic events which unfolded, said Andreas Evlavis, secretary of the Paphos Green party. It was reported to the Green party offices that the bus had been dumped at the Geroskipou rubbish tip.“Four people were killed in this bus and respect for this must be shown. You don’t throw away history,” he said.He added that the bus should be on permanent public display in Paphos.On the same day as the Greek junta and Eoka B inspired coup against Archbishop Makarios on July 15 1974, the vehicle from Polemi started its journey from Paphos to Limassol, full of resistance fighters loyal to Makarios. Close to Kolossi it was ambushed, and four resistance fighters were killed.“They were on their way to protect Makarios in Nicosia, but members of Eoka B heard about this and stopped the bus, killing four of them,” he said. “The others managed to escape.”The group were led by resistance fighter Mikis Tembriotis, who still lives in Paphos.In June, the Paphos mayor, Phedonas Phedonos officially inaugurated the upgraded park, the result of a joint project between the municipality and betting giant Opap, in a residential area in the centre of Paphos. It consists of plots belonging to a Turkish Cypriot named Ahmet Rashid.When the park was being renovated, the bus disappeared said Evlavis.“This is not just an old bus, this is a symbol, it is part of the history of the town,” he said.He added that particularly as Tembriotis is still alive, the bus should be preserved as a prominent symbol of Paphos.

private developers to rehabilitate slum-dwellers living in structures built before January 2000 in highrises constructed on a portion of the plot the slum occupies As an incentive builders are granted a higher construction area and are allowed to commercially exploit the remaining public land free of cost The scheme which was launched two decades ago with the intention of housing eight lakh

the title that India won four years ago (Source: AP) Related News The muddle over India’s participation in the Champions Trophy has rattled the Indian team and players now want to know when this ‘uncertainty’ will end The Indian Express has reliably learnt that the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (COA) head Vinod Rai recently spoke to the Indian team captain Virat Kohli and coach Anil Kumble after they sought clarity on the implications of the ICC vs BCCI wrangle that has cast a shadow on India’s participation in the tournament starting June 1 It is learnt that Kohli and Kumble both want the Indian team to take part in the Champions Trophy to be held next month in England and expressed their keenness to get a chance to defend the title that India won four years ago The uncertainty is said to be hampering the Indian players’ mindset with the IPL getting over in the next few weeks and preparations set to begin for India’s title defense The BCCI has already missed the April 25 deadline of submitting its squad to the ICC It was right after speaking to the two important members of the Indian team a few days ago that the COA issued a letter to BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary to convene a meeting of the selection committee for Champions Trophy immediately “It would be appropriate to make all necessary preparations for ensuring that Team India can successfully defend its title in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 which commences on 1st June 2017 You are aware that the squad representing India at the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 was to be submitted by 25th April 2017 but the squad has not even been selected as yet Please convene a meeting of the selection committee for selecting the squad immediately The squad can then be submitted to the ICC without prejudice to BCCI’s legal rights” the COA’s reply to the BCCI acting secretary said The BCCI will therefore pick the Indian squad for the Champions Trophy irrespective of what happens in its fight with the ICC Earlier in the day the COA directed the BCCI to select the Indian Champions Trophy squad as it disapproved the cricket board’s acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary’s missive seeking the Administrators’ go-ahead in sending a notice to the ICC that threatened to revoke the 2014 MPA and pull out of all ICC events for the ongoing eight-year rights cycle ‘Supportive environment’ The COA has also reminded the BCCI members to provide a “supportive environment” to the Indian team and erase uncertainties ahead of Sunday’s Special General Meeting (SGM) “We believe that any decision taken at the SGM should be predicated on the fact that India has the best team in the world today Team India should be provided with a supportive environment to showcase Indian cricket instead of being surrounded with uncertainty and confusion There has been more than enough negativity surrounding Team India’s participation in the ICC Champions Trophy and the sooner the same is put to rest the better” “The players’ interests are paramount and they must be given the best chance to prepare for defend and retain the ICC Champions Trophy The focus should be on enabling our team to achieve even greater heights and further laurels which will automatically attract higher revenues” the letter said A cricket board functionary however said the BCCI would have picked the squad in any case “See we want to send a notice to the ICC to cure the breach in accordance with the 2014 Members Participation Agreement (MPA) If we send the notice and in case the ICC cures the breach what will happen if we don’t have a squad ready for the Champions Trophy The general body will take a call on our participation in the tournament but we should also have our squad ready The date time and venue of the team selection will be decided by the (acting) secretary” he told this paper The BCCI is peeved at its reduced revenue share of $293 million as per the ICC’s new financial model although it has another $100 million settlement offer on the table The 2014 model was giving the Indian cricket board a revenue share of $570 (gross) based on contribution cost As reported by this paper Choudhary had written consent from over 20 BCCI affiliates to send the notice to the ICC and according to some members he should have gone ahead pre-empting the SGM “A 30-day notice period is mandatory to revoke the MPA and Thursday early morning was the deadline given that India’s Champions Trophy opener is on June 4 Now the ICC will take India’s participation as a fait accompli and will initiate the indemnity clause to seek huge financial recovery if we want to pull out mid-tournament” said an official of an East Zone association The BCCI’s acting secretary however was tied by the Supreme Court’s January 30 order that stated: “… The CEO of BCCI shall report to the Committee of Administrators and the Administrators shall supervise the management of BCCI” For all the latest Sports News download Indian

Open Superseries badminton singles encounters there was a repeat of clashes that had taken place in the Denmark Open Superseries Premier less than a week ago The top two Indian shuttlers produced near mirror-images of the results they had done in Odense Eighth-seeded Kidambi Srikanth who has risen four spots to the fourth position in the latest Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings and who had beaten Wong Wing Ki Vincent in straight games in the semi-final last Saturday on his way to the Danish title repeated his triumph over the Hong Kong bustler in similar fashion and by almost identical scores 21-19 21-17 in 37 minutes compared to the 21-18 21-17 verdict that had used up two additional minutes at Odense Park India’s Kidambi Srikanth at the French Open Superseries Image courtesy: Twitter @srikidambi Srikanth’s stable-mate at the Pullela Gopichand Academy Saina Nehwal was unable to overturn the 29-minute 21-10 21-13 reverse she had suffered in Odense at the hands of Japan’s fifth-seeded Akane Yamaguchi and capitulated again in Paris The 27-year-old Indian’s defeat by a 21-9 23-21 scoreline took 10 minutes longer than it had in Denmark but it only succeeded in putting her further down at 1-3 in the career head-to-head meetings with the stocky 20-year-old Japanese powerhouse who progressed to a quarter-final meeting with South Korea’s 25-year-old third seed Sung Ji Hyun However second-seeded PV Sindhu played far better than she had on the opening day of the $325000 event and overwhelmed Japan’s Sayaka Takahashi by a 21-14 21-13 margin The gangling Indian who appeared sharp and aggressive against the Japanese earned a revenge quarter-final meeting with Chinese teenager Chen Yufei who had knocked her out in the opening round of the Denmark Open last week in two straight albeit tough games Like Nehwal whose form has unaccountably dipped after her outstanding opening-round victory in Odense over Spain’s 2016 Olympic gold medallist Carolina Marin B Sai Praneeth

leads in the second game; and his defeat at Nishimoto’s hands did not quite cause the flutter it would have a few months ago As for the 40th-ranked Nishimoto shock conqueror of Malaysia’s aging seventh seed Lee Chong Wei in his opening round on Wednesday the Japanese will cross swords in Friday’s quarter-final with Indonesia’s up-and-coming Anthony Sinisuka Ginting who had scant difficulty in dispatching Hong Kong’s Hu Yun at 21-7 21-16 in two minutes under the half-hour mark The most impressive Indian performer of the day was HS Prannoy who made light of what could have been a tricky pre-quarter-final clash with Denmark’s Hans-Kristian Solberg Vittinghus winning at 21-11 21-12 in a minute under the half-hour mark The 25-year-old Prannoy who was born in Kerala but has been training in Hyderabad now for several years showed a confident streak while taming the man who had sent the tournament’s second seed Son Wan Ho of South Korea home in his opening outing In Friday’s quarter-finals Prannoy runs into another Korean Jeon Hyeok Jin who settled the pretensions of China’s Qiao Bin in a long-drawn battle at 21-16 13-21 21-12 Giant-killer Jeon who had easily knocked out an off-colour No 5 seed Chou Tien Chen of Chinese Taipei in his lung-opener clashes with Prannoy in the final quarter of the draw As for the red-hot Srikanth whose exploits are being closely monitored by the global badminton community with an eye to locate a way of halting his all-conquering march he faces a challenging quarter-final with China’s No 4 seed Shi Yuqi whom he displaced from the fourth rung of the BWF ladder in the latest rankings The 21-year-old Chinese player beat Frenchman Brice Leverdez in a canter at 21-15 21-10 on Thursday In one of the biggest shock results of the day another exciting 21-year-old Anders Antonsen of Denmark gave a glimpse of his burgeoning talent by knocking out the 2016 Rio Olympics gold medallist and two-time former world champion Chen Long of China at

top-seeded Japanese twosome of Ayaka Takahashi and Misaki Matsutomo at 21-16 21-14 The Indians were unable to make any impression on the water-tight defence of the World No 1 pair But there was a most encouraging result for the youthful men’s doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty who achieved what was arguably the best result of their fledgling career as a unit The Indians lowered the colours of the World’s No 6 ranked men’s team of Mads Pieler Kolding and Mads-Conrad Pedersen at 22-20 12-21 21-19 Despite being swept off their feet in the middle game Rankireddy and

News Doing well in life it seems is not as difficult as we tend to assume when life throws a few tough challenges at us A new study has found that what it takes to thrive rather than merely survive could be as simple as feeling good about life and yourself and being good at something Until now and despite plenty of theories there has been no agreement on what makes a person thrive or on how people can try and ensure they do To come up with a definitive catch-all the researchers pulled together research on what makes people thrive from studies of babies and teenagers to studies of artists sportspeople employees and the elderly “Thriving is a word most people would be glad to hear themselves described as but which science hasn’t really managed to consistently classify and describe until now” said Daniel Brown a sport and exercise scientist at the University of Portsmouth in Britain “It appears to come down to an individual experiencing a sense of development of getting better at something and succeeding at mastering something” he added “In the simplest terms what underpins it is feeling good about life and yourself and being good at something” Brown added The study published in the journal European Psychologist outlines a ‘shopping list’ of requirements for thriving in life According to the list one has to be optimistic spiritual or religious motivated proactive someone who enjoys learning and is flexible adaptable socially competent believes in self/has self-esteem Moreover one should also have the opportunity and employer/family/other support The other requirements in the list include challenges and difficulties are at manageable level environment is calm is given a high degree of autonomy and is trusted as competent To thrive does not need all the components but a combination of some from each of the two lists may help the researchers said Thriving has been examined at various stages of human life and has at times been described as vitality learning mental toughness focus or combinations of these and other qualities It has also been examined in various contexts including in the military in health and in child development “Since the end of the 20th century there has been a quest in science to better understand human fulfilment and thriving there’s been a shift towards wanting to understand how humans can function as highly as possible” Brown said “Part of the reason for a lack of consensus is the research so far has been narrowly focused Some have studied what makes babies thrive others have examined what makes some employees thrive and others not and so on By setting out a clear definition I hope this helps set a course for future research” Brown added For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related

illegal firearms factory was busted at Rabindra Nagar in South-24 Parganas a state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) team from West Bengal on Friday is set to leave for Munger district in Bihar Three persons were arrested in connection with the case on May 15 — Goutam Roy (52) Mohammed Nasrul (28) and Mohammed Sabbir Alam (30) CID had said that Nasrul and Alam are from Munger district in Bihar which is infamous for manufacturing of illegal weapons ADG (CID) Rajesh Kumar said: “We have got some leads Our team will leave for Munger tomorrow to arrest a few more” Officials said during interrogation the accused had revealed details on how Munger caters to Bengal’s demands for arms “Some more names have come up We need to arrest them before we expose the entire gang that is operating from Munger to Bengal” said an official The CID has allegedly found that the Rabindra Nagar factory — from where 38 semi-finished pistols and some arms-making equipment were recovered — was operating for the last three to four months “The pistols assembled at the factory was sold for about Rs 10000 to Rs 20000 Mohammed Nasrul and Mohammed Sabbir Alam have revealed some big names connected to the arms market… We have information that the accused were in contact with some arms manufacturer in Munger” said an official “We suspect more than 50 arms manufacturers and suppliers were actively operating from Munger to Bengal especially in areas like Rabindra Nagar Maheshtala and Metiabruz” the official added “This gang would usually supply arms to South-24 Parganas Nadia Malda and other border areas across Bengal The members mainly assembled the weapons and supplied the same to the market For making arms they used cheap parts which they would get from Munger…” he said Last year in

Three of them were from Munger Following the incident police had busted similar arms-making factories twice in the area last year “Rabindra Nagar has become a ‘mini Munger’ It is a minority dominated

Kancha Ilaiah | Updated: June 1 2016 12:16 am If Modiji wants to build a fence on the Pakistan border Trumpji wants to build a big business wall around the whole of America Even this wall business Trumpji learnt from Modiji only Related News When Narendra Modi gave the slogan “India first’’ the most excited support for it came from non-resident Indians particularly NRIs living in America The Hindutva NRI’s ardent “Indian nationalism” not nationalism of the nation where they are living either as citizens or as green card-holders is well known Now they should be very happy that Modiji has taught Donald Trumpji — the presidential candidate of the grand old American Republican Party a slogan of his election campaign For the first time in history an American leader has learnt from an Indian leader how to encapsulate a nationalist slogan — “America first” Should not we — and more so the Modiites in America — be happy about this development One of the key elements of the Hindutva NRI’s nationalism is opposition to liberalism (which they call left-liberalism) They hate the idea of pure “left” more than they hate the idea of pure “liberal” as “leftism’’ (meaning Marxism) asks for equal work and equal wage for all able-bodied people of a nation The Hindutva NRIs think they are more equal than the American blacks and Hispanics They also assume that leftism opposes migration and double citizenship whereas “rightism” (meaning Modi-ism) gives that right without any ambivalence Modiji promised double citizenship and the American NRIs would get it Perhaps Trumpji would ask them to go back Interestingly while Bernie Sanders was challenging the liberal Hillary Clinton from the left the Hindutva NRIs were quick to jump into the campaign trail of liberal Hillary If we go by their ideological prescription for India which includes the grand idea of “India first” they should be staunch supporters of Trump’s “America first” Why then do they hate the right wing Trumpji After all he is as much of a bigot-nationalist as Modiji Share This Article Related Article Modiji’s “India first” slogan was given keeping the Indian Muslims and Christians in mind The unstated idea was that for Muslims and Christians India is not first For Muslims “Pakistan is first” for Christians “Vatican is first’’ Though Trump also hates Muslims he has in mind the Indians and Chinese living in America who do not believe in America first Trump believes that Indians should go to India and Chinese should go to China and keep shouting “India first” and “China first” If Modiji wants to build a fence on the Pakistan border Trumpji wants to build a big business wall around the whole of America Even this wall business Trumpji learnt from Modiji only For the first time our PM is giving creative ideas to American presidential candidates also Should we not celebrate such an “idea” export enterprise Some of us left-liberals do not have enough brains to appreciate Modiji here and Trumpji there Should not Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji and Ramdevji go there to enlist support for the Indian brainchild in America and ask the NRIs to support him Some great NRI researchers living in America working around the Hindu American Foundation found out (in a book called Breaking India) that several Christian and Muslim organisations and their friends living in India are conspiring to “break India” into four nations (curiously called Dalitistan Islamistan Christianistan and Hindustan) Assume that Trump and Republican Christians think that the Hindu American Foundation is conspiring to break America and to inject idolatry and polytheism into their Christian monotheist fatherland Would they be wrong It is a known fact that the Republicans are as conservative anti-idolatry Christians as the BJP wallahs are ardent idol worshippers If the Hindutva NRIs love their motherland while living in the American fatherland why can’t Americans love their own fatherland while doing big business with the Indian motherland News is trickling down that the Hindutva NRIs are worried about the possibility of Trump winning the election These are the ones who wrote thousands of abusive social media messages on facebook and twitter against whosoever has argued that nationalist jingoism of the Hindutva type is actually anti-national It needed a quick American learner like Trump to make them realise that if he wins the election India would have more re-migrated un-employees Let us not think that the Chinese will be sitting ducks as the great Hindutva Indians are The Trump Wall cannot stop the builders of the Great Wall China knows how to handle a hundred Trumps but the maverick Trump can make his Hindutva friends dance India is still dependent on America for many things If a third world country like India could think that through Hindutva ideology it can bend America to support India against Pakistan they are mistaken The Hindutva NRIs were happy with the Indian cow slaughter ban while enjoying the meat and milk of American cows They were also very happy that the Hindutva rulers believe in the demolition of mosques and building of mandirs in their place But by learning from the same Hindutva ideology if the Trump forces demolish Hindu temples in America and build churches what will the Hindutva wallas do That is the reason why in a globalised world it is better to work around liberal democratic values which do not accept the demolition of other cultures and promotion of jingoist cultures Hardly anybody imagined that a man of Trump’s bigotry could win the Republican primaries The Hindutva forces must realise that they too are a minority in many countries If the Hindutva forces could say that those who eat beef must go to Pakistan the Trumpites can say that pure vegetarians should go to India Migrants who live in other countries should not enthusiastically support communal jingoistic politics back home Americans might not allow the Trump kind of “America first” to come to power because they cannot imperil their democracy and liberal values Without realising what would be in store Indian voters elected Modi to power and now all democratic institutions are under stress The people’s food culture higher educational institutions pro-people welfare schemes are in crisis If the Hindutva Indian Americans are honest they must rally round Trump But we know that they are terrified by Trump’s neo-Nazi nationalism We hope that at least they would realise that the Indian minorities are also human beings like them with a desire to live in peace The writer is director

by an Indian artist who specialises in capturing the likeness of his subjects from a photograph Unfortunately the artist was given a copy of a photograph of Hollande with his former partner journalist Valerie Trierweiler The artist included Valerie in the painting presuming she was his wife When the faux pas was discovered it was decided it was more diplomatic not to present the painting at all since it was too late to paint over Valerie’s face In an interesting twist while neither Valerie nor Julie accompanied Hollande to India his earlier partner of three decades by whom he has four

radio stations or six slots an hour on prime-time TV Even the publicity concerning the odd-even scheme was centred around Kejriwal’s image Colourful example Some commentators on Indian television

the timeto take a personal interest in the matter and forestalling the response of the university administration itself and ignoring old-fashioned considerations such as institutional autonomy weighed in with all his might He sounded sombre almost Churchillian on the eve of the Battle of Britain — “We will fight them on the beaches…” The police commissioner of Delhi took time out from other important business such as harassing the AAP government and sent in his cops to arrest the president of the JNU students’ union for a somewhat obscure offence — chanting “anti-national slogans” though

violence (the ABVP Bajrang Dal etc) certain provisions of the penal code (Sections 153 295 etc) and a compliant police administration is deployed in order to silence all expression of dissent and to destroy the institutional locations where critical ideas may be aired — and maybe even shouted Between easily hurt “sentiments” and the ever-present threat of public disorder which can be produced on

KC Bhattacharya’s famous question: “Is there an Indian way of fascism” It is time that the home ministry published a list of all the things that must not be said or seen — or apparently even heard

of the boys of the Periyar Study Circle at IIT Madras Rohith Vemula’s “offence” has been rather obscured by the pious platitudes prompted by his suicide but it must have been pretty dire for a Union

these two Indian Premier League (IPL) teams for two years has brought him satisfaction He is the one who took the powerful former BCCI president N Srinivasan head-on when others were happy to play along with the wily man from Chennai However Verma doesn’t want to be called a whistleblower He is an ardent devotee of cricket and he says that descriptor is good enough for him Aditya Verma Image courtesy: Naresh Sharma/Firstpost “I’m just the secretary of the Cricket Association of Bihar and my fight was against the BCCI to get full-member status for my state in the BCCI Bihar is the third largest state and it has been participating in Ranji Trophy matches and produced good players But our boys are unable to participate in the IPL Taking advantage of being an autonomous body the BCCI prevented smaller states from participating in these matches The smaller states don’t get the opportunity that bigger states like Maharashtra Delhi Tamil Nadu etc get Now the Supreme Court has made it clear that BCCI is a public body Srinivasan has brought a bad name to the BCCI I always wanted that the truth behind this IPL betting episode should become public and the accused should be punished” Verma told Firstpost The Lodha committee verdict is the latest step in the case that began with Verma filing a case in the Bombay High Court claiming that the BCCI’s investigation that completely cleared Meiyappan and Kundra in the IPL betting case was a sham While the High Court stopped short of saying the investigation was a cover-up it struck the investigation down on the grounds it violated the BCCI’s own rules The board had the option of instituting a fresh probe but instead chose to appeal the verdict in the Supreme Court which then set up the Justice Mudgal panel to investigate the allegations Subsequently the Lodha Committee was set up which gave its verdict on 14 July “Srinivasan used every means to shield his son-in-law Meiyappan He has no morality Now the BCCI has to come up clean as it’s accountable to the nation and the game of cricket If the BCCI wants to redeem its lost reputation and for the sake of credibility of cricket the present board management must call back Srinivasan and file criminal charges of fraud and forgery against him and those others involved in the corruption Nobody no institution is above law” he said Originally from

important task that needs to be done Mudgal Committee submitted a sealed envelope (with 13 names) to the Supreme Court These are the names of the tainted people (including players) associated with cricket betting These should come in public domain Present BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya should ensure legal action against the accused because at one point of time due to this corruption he was
