Church in Brazil to celebrate 125 years

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Comments are closed. [Episcopal News Service] For 125 years the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil has been rooted in mission. What began as a mission church of the U.S.-based Episcopal Church has expanded its own mission fields into remote corners in what is the largest country in South America.In the coming days, the church will gather in Porto Alegre, the birthplace of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil, to celebrate not only its 125th anniversary but also 50 years of autonomy and 30 years of women’s ordination.“It is important to celebrate this milestone because it is imperative that the history and memories of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil are kept alive,” said Archbishop Francisco de Assis da Silva, Brazil’s primate since 2013, and bishop of the Diocese of Southwest Brazil. “It is also an opportunity to celebrate and give thanksgivings for the dedication and devotion of many generations and to make visible the Anglican presence in Brazil.”In 1890, two missionaries from Virginia Theological Seminary, Lucien Lee Kinsolving and James Watson Morris, felt called to start the church in Brazil and established a presence in the southern city of Porto Alegre, where today the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity is located. Three additional missionaries — William Cabell Brown, John Gaw Meem and Mary Packard — came to Brazil in 1891 and established new missions in Santa Rita do Rio dos Sinos, Rio Grande and Pelotas, explained da Silva.In addition to the anniversary celebrations, the church will introduce a version of the Book of Common Prayer adapted to the Brazilian context. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will attend the June 5-7 celebration and is scheduled to give a lecture in commemoration of women’s ordination.“The Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil has invited many friends and partners to celebrate this momentous and beautiful event,” said da Silva, adding that the church in Brazil hasn’t been alone in its mission, but has worked with religious partners. “We are ecumenical in both our souls and in our actions. It is important that the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil builds foundations and communities with a spirit for justice and justice for the next 125 years, just like it has been done for the last 125 years.”In 1810, when Brazil was still a Portuguese colony, the Anglican Church established expatriate chaplaincies. Later, after independence and the official separation of church and state in 1889, it sent missionaries. Still, the bonds of affection remain strongest with The Episcopal Church, since the mission field established in 1890 by Kinsolving and Watson remained part of the U.S.-based Episcopal Church until the Brazilian church became an autonomous province of the Anglican Communion in 1965.“These missionaries came to work with the Brazilians, unlike the British that came to work with their own,” said the Rev. Arthur Cavalcante, the church’s provincial secretary, during a late 2014 bilateral committee meeting in Sao Paulo. “Our relationship is obviously stronger with the Americans as they took the initiative to open a dialogue with the Brazilians.”In 1907, the missionary efforts in Brazil resulted in the establishment of a missionary district of The Episcopal Church under the leadership of Kinsolving, who by then was a bishop. In the 1950s, the Brazilian church began talking about its autonomy, and in 1965 the missionary district became the autonomous Province of Brazil. The Episcopal Church continued its financial support of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil until 1975.Following autonomy, though the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil maintained a strong connection to the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, it began to feel isolated. In 1990, at the time of the church’s centennial celebration, the primates of the two churches agreed to establish a bilateral committee to reconnect, re-establish friendships and encourage partnerships and companion relationships between the two churches.“No church lives in isolation,” said the Rev. Glenda McQueen, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society’s officer for Latin America and the Caribbean, adding that the church is Brazil presents an opportunity for partnerships. “The church in Brazil is responsible for the mission of the church in this part of the continent, but the church in Brazil also needs and invites her brothers and sisters in the church in other parts of the world to come and share, to come and learn. To come and experience God in this context, and for us in The Episcopal Church this is a wonderful opportunity for mission and ministry.”Being a young province of the Anglican Communion, the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil’s energy and abundant life serve not only as an example for others, but as an opportunity to be re-energized, to learn and to grow, and to share that energy, said McQueen.The Episcopal Church continues to send missionaries to Brazil: Church-appointed missionaries Monica Vega and Heidi Schmidt are serving the province, and Young Adult Service Corps missionary Rachel McDaniel is serving the Diocese of Southwestern Brazil. Two additional YASC missionaries are expected to head to Brazil later this year. The Diocese of Central Pennsylvania and the Diocese of Sao Paulo, and the Diocese of Brasilia and the Diocese of Indianapolis have existing companion relationships.In addition to seeking partnerships with The Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Anglican Church in Brazil recently hosted a three-day meeting of Portuguese-speaking churches, including some from Angola, Mozambique and Portugal, to promote the expression of the Portuguese church and to establish relations and partnerships in mission.“One hundred and twenty-five years after the missionaries came, Brazil is still very much a land of mission,” said Cavalcante. “There still needs to be a lot of support: Brazil is enormous and we still need missionaries to work in areas where the church is underrepresented in places like Amazonia, which covers 3.5 million kilometers squared, places reachable only by boats and in the northeast.”Brazil is the world’s fifth largest country both geographically and by population, with more than 200 million people. Though Roman Catholicism is no longer the state-sponsored religion, it has more Roman Catholics, 123 million, than any other country in the world.Unlike other Protestant and Evangelical churches, which in recent years have gained on the Roman Catholic Church’s dominance in South America, the Anglican Episcopal Church of Brazil preaches a social gospel aimed at engaging congregations and communities in conversations still considered taboo in certain circles.“We understand that the gospel shouldn’t be proclaimed just as salvation of the soul, but as the whole being,” said Rio de Janeiro Bishop Filadelfo Oliveira Neto, during the bilateral committee meeting.Despite having one of the fastest-growing economies over the last decade – the largest economy in South America and the seventh-largest in the world, with a growing middle class – Brazil has one of the highest rates of income inequality in the world. Access to land and affordable housing; high levels of domestic violence, racism and homophobia; discrimination and exploitation aimed at the high number of migrants working in the informal economy are issues not necessarily talked about in polite company, but are problems that the church is addressing.The Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil, as opposed to other Christian denominations, takes a more inclusive approach to preaching the Gospel. It offers a social gospel to Brazilian society, advocating for the rights of gays and lesbians, initiating conversations aimed at addressing the epidemic problem of violence against women, and standing with indigenous people and the landless rural workers movement.“It’s still a minority church, and since it’s more ‘liberal’ it has developed its own identity. … We offer a theology different from the more traditional Roman Catholic theology and that can be uncomfortable for people,” said Cavalcante. “The Anglican Church is a place where you can have an alternative vision for how to be and what is church.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Located in a privileged area, surrounded by woods yet close to Guatemala city, Chinkara house is presented as a dual housing, which explores the contrast between nature and man-made; the primitive and the modern.Save this picture!© Marko BradichThe house is imagined as a rock located on the ground, an ethereal element organized from the contours of the site. It contains an art gallery, an intimate contemplation space, a container of experiences embodied in the various works of art that make it up. This rock volume is sculpted in a way that allows overhead lighting and views from the different environments to the natural landscape.Save this picture!© Marko BradichThis stone volume serves as the heart of the building, around which the different rooms of the house adhere, penetrate, or overlap, each contained within different white volumes wrapped in ACM, an artificial material, which opposed to the stone symbolizes the intervention of man in the natural setting of the project. As a result, the residence reads like a harmonious composition between soil, stone and man.Save this picture!PlanEven when the house can be read as a mass composition of volumes, inside, each room retains a residential, intimate, human scale. The warmth of wood on the floor, the rustic stone, the height of the rooms and their ornamentation reinforce the idea of the good life, constantly inviting residents to contemplation and intimacy.Save this picture!© Marko BradichThis introverted notion of the project is contrasted with the experience of the house to the landscape. Except for the art gallery, each of the rooms that make up the house is contained in a defined volume, which opens outward, integrating the richness of nature with the experiences contained within the house. Large windows in bright red, which are embedded in the volumes that make up the building, denote this intention to frame the landscape from within.Save this picture!DetailOutside, the house reads as a set of windows that expose its interior spaces, as well as the experiences of its inhabitants day to day; inside, all activities of the residents are ornamented by a natural background, consisting of different species of trees, animals and sounds from outside.Save this picture!© Marko BradichUltimately, Chinkara House is more than a home, it is an intermediary between the natural and the artificial; the intimate and the external; the massive and impressive, with the residential and everyday.Save this picture!© Marko BradichProject gallerySee allShow lessSV House / Luciano Kruk ArquitectosSelected ProjectsCTBUH Names One Central Park “Best Tall Building Worldwide” for 2014Architecture News Share Houses Architectural Design: Mauricio Solís Interior Design:Joanna de GoyzuetaProject Manager:Roberto MelgarCollaborators:Eddy López, Gustavo Lima, Francisco Velázquez, Jeremías Calmo, Diego CastilloCity:Guatemala CityCountry:GuatemalaMore SpecsLess Specs Architects: Solis Colomer Arquitectos Photographs ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/565689/chinkara-house-solis-colomer-arquitectos Clipboard Chinkara House / Solis Colomer Arquitectoslast_img read more

Afghanistan

first_img Organisation AfghanistanAsia – Pacific There are no laws about the Internet, but the problem is logging on. The phone network is too dilapidated to be used for Internet connection, so no ISPs can operate in the country. Satellite phones are the only way to get online and are freely used by government officials, foreign journalists, NGOs and the army. But very few ordinary people can afford to use this very expensive means of communication. Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” News The Islamic state set up by the Taliban after their seizure of Kabul in 1996 brutally stamped out freedom of expression. The Internet was seen by these “theology students” as a heretical and dangerous medium. The 20 years of war that destroyed the country’s phone network is another reason the Internet hardly exists. In 2000-2001, only leading Taliban and officials of government ministries and international humanitarian organisations, along with a few leaders of the opposition Northern Alliance, had access to it, via Pakistan or a satellite link.The Internet was formally outlawed by the Taliban on 13 July 2001 to “prevent access to all vulgar, immoral or anti-Islamic material,” as the foreign ministry put it. Six weeks later, a new decree by Taliban leader Mullah Omar banned government and non-government organisations, local and foreign, and all citizens from using it. The religious police were ordered to mete out Islamic punishment to offenders. Only the headquarters of the Taliban militia was allowed to use the Internet, to approve e-mail sent by government ministries.The regime’s collapse in November 2001 opened a new era. When he was sworn in on 22 December, the interim president, Hamid Karzai, stressed that freedom of expression and belief was the right of all Afghans and the government’s job was to defend it. The road to widespread Internet access will be hard however. Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Afghanistan May 3, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts After 20 years of war, as well as fierce censorship by the Taliban, the Internet hardly exists. The new government that took power in November 2001 says it favours freedom of expression and media diversity. Growth of the Internet depends on the regime’s ability to rebuild the communications infrastructure.

There is so far no regulation of the Internet, but the ministry, helped by international organisations, is drawing up a telecommunications law.The first cybercafé was opened in Kabul in August 2002 by the Afghan Wireless Communication company. Soon afterwards, the media aid NGO Aïna opened an Internet centre for Afghan journalists. In March 2003, there were about five cybercafés in Kabul.The Internet is a vital source of information however for the tens of thousands of Afghans who live in the United States, Canada, Australia, France and Germany. At the end of 2001, they decided to use the Internet to help rebuild the country and unite the scattered diaspora. Exiles working in California’s Silicon Valley created a site called Virtual Nation, linking Afghans around the world and aid organisations seeking to help the country.

Variability of Colletotrichum kahawae in relation to other Colletotrichum species from tropical perennial crops and the development of diagnostic techniques

first_imgTwenty-six isolates of Colletotrichum kahawae, the causal agent of coffee berry disease, from coffee in Africa, and 25 isolates, mostly of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, from coffee and other tropical perennial crops, were examined for the ability to metabolize citrate and tartrate and their molecular genetic variability was assessed using restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLP) and variable number tandem repeats (VNTR). Twenty-four isolates of C. kahawae were also assessed using amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLP). Vegetative compatibility within a collection of nine isolates, including two of C. gloeosporioides was also assessed. All isolates of C. kahawae from across Africa failed to metabolize citrate or tartrate, but all other isolates metabolized one or both. Colletotrichum kahawae isolates also showed minimal variability using the molecular techniques with two isolates from Cameroon showing slightly different banding patterns in RFLP analysis. All other isolates had variable VNTR and RFLP banding patterns. AFLP analysis failed to detect variability within 12 isolates from Kenya, but did detect differences between isolates from other countries. Five isolates from Kenya were vegetatively compatible but differed from two from Cameroon and from two C. gloeosporioides isolates. Results demonstrate some geographic variability within C. kahawae isolates, although this is small, probably due to the relatively young age of C. kahawae populations. The biochemical and molecular techniques used showed clear differences from other Colletotrichum isolates, and can be used to distinguish the species. Lack of citrate and tartrate metabolism provides a readily applicable diagnostic method.last_img read more

Handing Over Reins in Bahrain

first_img View post tag: News by topic Handing Over Reins in Bahrain View post tag: Navy September 30, 2013 After two years at the helm of the UK Maritime Component Command in Bahrain, Commodore Simon Ancona is handing over his responsibilities and moving into a new role.At the US Naval Headquarters in Bahrain, Cdre Ancona thanked his staff for the “superb job” they did before handing over his responsibilities as the UK Maritime Component Commander and Deputy Commander Combined Maritime Forces to Commodore Keith Blount.Cdre Ancona will shortly join the Ministry of Defence in the rank of Rear Admiral.Royal Navy warships have maintained a constant presence in the Persian Gulf since September 1980 and in recent years have played a significant role as part of the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF), a Bahrain-based multi-national naval force drawn from 29 nations with missions including counter-piracy, counter-terrorism and the maintenance of security in and around the Persian Gulf.Regarding his Royal Navy responsibilities in the 2.5 million square mile Joint Operating Area, which encompasses the majority of the Middle East, Cdre Ancona said:“There is no doubting the importance and relevance of the work being done by the Royal Navy in the region.“It is impossible to name another area of the globe that has such a direct effect on UK security and prosperity.“The men and women who deploy here do a superb job in often very difficult circumstances and it has been a pleasure and honour to play my part.”With regard to his Combined Maritime Forces responsibilities, he added:“The CMF is a remarkable organisation – perhaps the largest maritime cooperative that has ever existed – it continues to marshal forces from across its 29 nation membership to contribute to security and stability in a region of global importance.“I have been privileged to have been a part of it.”The UK has had strong defence links with the Persian Gulf region for many years. Enhancing these links even further through military relationships is at the core of the UKMCC responsibilities.The Gulf States are a source of economic and political influence and the UK, through the enduring RN presence continues its engagement with them to address a range of international issues.[mappress]Press Release, September 30, 2013; Image: Royal Navy Share this article View post tag: over View post tag: Defensecenter_img View post tag: Naval Back to overview,Home naval-today Handing Over Reins in Bahrain View post tag: Reins View post tag: Defence Authorities View post tag: Handinglast_img read more

Government’s new obesity plan “woeful”

first_imgA government plea for people to eat less in a bid to battle the growing obesity crisis has been widely criticised by the public and the food industry.Launching a new “ambition” to bring down England’s obesity levels by 2020 yesterday, Health Secretary Andrew Lansley stressed he was not in favour of regulating the food and drink industry.However, the plea has been labelled “woefully inadequate” by Which? and was slammed by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver as “patronising”.Overall, Britons should be eating five billion fewer calories a day than at present, he added. The new obesity strategy says that, on average, adults are exceeding their recommended calorie intake by 10%. Lansley said government and business had a role to play, but people also needed to take responsibility for their own health.He insisted that “more progress has been made more quickly” through the Responsibility Deal with food and drink manufacturers than would have been managed through legislation. And he said the government would continue to “look at the evidence” on measures such as a “fat tax” on fatty foods, something Prime Minister David Cameron has said he would consider.More than 60% of adults in England and a third of 10 and 11-year-olds are obese. Mr Lansley said he would like to see school and work canteens carrying nutritional information about the calories in meals.Which? executive director Richard Lloyd described the strategy as “woefully inadequate”, adding: “Almost a quarter of the population is now obese, and the cost to the NHS and the wider economy is rapidly rising. The Government calls on people to cut down the calories they eat, but isn’t giving them the tools to do so.”However, the move for a lighter touch on legislation was welcomed by the Food and Drink Federation.Terry Jones, FDF director of communications, said: “We are pleased to see the Government taking a holistic approach to tackling the complex problem of obesity. The framework’s clear focus and defined roles for a wide range of players, including government, individuals, businesses and the health service at both a national and local level recognises that this is everybody’s business.“Food manufacturers have a great track record of positive contributions to improving public health, including clear labelling and reformulation of products, to help consumers make healthy choices. Following the announcement today, we are committed to continuing to work in partnership with the Department of Health and others through the Public Health Responsibility Deal to play our part in supporting people to achieve an appropriate calorie intake and a healthy lifestyle.”last_img read more

Students prepare for graduate school exams

first_imgMidterm exams are rapidly approaching, but many upperclassmen are focusing their attention on post-graduate exams. To prepare for these exams, many juniors and seniors reach out to organizations such as Kaplan Test Prep. Liza Weale, executive director of pre-business and pre-graduate programs for Kaplan, said Kaplan Test Prep provided courses to more than 638,000 students worldwide over a single year. Kaplan offers preparation for the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE), Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT), Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). Admissions tests are one of the only quantitative and objective measures on applications for graduate school. “In Kaplan Test Prep’s 2010 surveys of graduate school, business school and law school admissions officers, the GRE, GMAT and LSAT, respectively, ranked as the most important admissions factors,” Weale said. “According to our medical school admissions officers’ survey, a low MCAT score is the biggest application killer.” However, students can improve their scores dramatically before they send applications to graduate programs by preparing correctly, Weale said. Kaplan offers a range of programs in the classroom and online as well as private tutoring to help students prepare for these tests. Junior Tony Dang is among the many pre-med students preparing for the MCAT in May. Dang said he began slowly preparing for the exam over summer break. “The resources that I have been using so far have been the Kaplan MCAT test books for each individual subject (Physics, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology and the verbal portion of the test),” he said. “I also have 10 practice tests that a friend that sent me for extra practice once I’m done with studying the subjects. All of the studying is individualized, meaning that I am not taking any classes in preparation for this test.” Dang said he would like to see different organizations, such as the Princeton Review, on campus in addition to more traditional companies. “I think the [University] offers adequate options to help with test preparation,” he said. “But I would like to see other organizations other than Kaplan on campus.” Senior John Anders prepared for the LSAT with a Kaplan Live Online class during summer 2010 before he took the exam in October. The instructor for the course broadcasted the lesson over a video to students across the country. “Because I took this class, I took five practice exams prior to my actual test day,” he said. “They gave me a feel for where I was before taking the actual exam.” Anders said he utilized the online LSAT tools provided by Kaplan to monitor his studying. “They have this thing called Smart Reports that analyzes your performance on practice tests and diagnoses where you could use more practice and tracks your progress,” Anders said. “I found this to be one of the most helpful tools in my preparation.” Because of the ample resources offered through Kaplan, Anders said he did not seek out resources through Notre Dame other than quiet study space in campus libraries. Anders said he was confident of the test format and types of questions on the exam, and he said he was very happy with his score. “I think knowing exactly what I was going to get on the exam was a huge confidence boost for me, and my scores represented this,” Anders said. “I have the class I took to thank for this.” Saint Mary’s senior Kristen Metzger will take the GRE at the end of the summer and was accepted to the Teach for America program after graduation. Metzger will receive her master’s degree in education at the University of North Carolina while she completes that program. Metzger said she used Kaplan resources to study for past exams and turned to their GRE preparation book because she was familiar with their format. “They also offer practice tests online that I’m sure I will take advantage of,” she said. The “Classroom Anywhere” online option is the most popular among students preparing for exams through Kaplan, Weale said. “Classroom Anywhere courses take the dynamic interaction of a live instructor — who brings all the enthusiasm and inspiration of our Kaplan classrooms — and combines it with state-of-the-art online classroom tools to translate the combination into an online environment that’s designed to enhance the learning experience,” she said. Fees for Kaplan programs vary depending on the program. Weale said thousands of free practice tests and admissions seminars are available across the country. Students unhappy with their preparation or exam score can study with Kaplan for free for the next test date or for three more months for computer-based tests. “Students in our programs see great results, as evidenced by the tens of thousands of students who come to us each year,” Weale said. “Much of Kaplan’s growth comes from reputation and word-of-mouth, so we have a vested interest in helping our students succeed.”last_img read more

Native American Student Association of Notre Dame protests Columbus murals

first_imgThe Native American Student Association of Notre Dame (NASAND) gathered outside the Main Building, organizing a peaceful protest of the university’s Gregori murals Monday afternoon. The aim of the organization is to obtain the University’s commitment to Native American diversity through a peaceful manner.Rosie LoVoi | The Observer Commissioned by Fr. Edward Sorin, Vatican artist Luigi Gregori painted these large murals, displayed in the Main Building. According to a statement by the University regarding the Columbus murals, Sorin wanted art that represented the Catholic spirit of the University. However, NASAND protested the misrepresentation of Columbus’ ways along with the offensive and stereotypical portrayal of Native Americans in the murals.The peaceful protest began with speeches from NASAND members, who spoke of the importance of Native American representation on campus, and was followed by a more informal forum, giving attendees the opportunity to ask NASAND students questions.NASAND president and senior Dom Acri discussed some of the problems associated with the Gregori murals. Acri talked about the University’s use of the William Faulkner quote, “The past is never dead, it is not even past,” and he said NASAND hopes to take back this sentiment and make people aware of Native American culture and significance.“In an attempt to address these understandably controversial, and what our group would even call openly marginalizing murals, we are reminded that like this quote suggests, we must recognize the past because it is still here with us,” Acri said.In addition to making students, faculty and administration aware of NASAND’s desire for greater recognition and inclusion from the University, the organization has detailed goals for greater diversification throughout the school year.Acri said the student group wants to be talked to, not talked about. NASAND wants to hold a town hall meeting regarding the status and further actions in dealing with the Gregori murals, something Acri said is strengthened by the involvement of allied members.“What we need is for people to get behind us and help our movement gain momentum,” Acri said.Among other important plans are the group’s hope to serve as a connection to the Pokagon band — the tribe whose land Notre Dame rests on. Acri said NASAND would like to assist in the recruitment of a Native American faculty and establish a Native American Studies program, bring back the Notre Dame powwow and achieve greater involvement in Notre Dame’s “Walk the Walk” event.“A diverse community strengthens Notre Dame’s mission and allows students to open their minds to new perspectives,” Acri said. “But when the only representation that we have right now is these murals, we don’t think Notre Dame is fulfilling that goal. We wanted to have this event in order to help Notre Dame achieve their mission.”Tags: Columbus murals, NASAND, Native Americans, protestlast_img read more

The tax implications of board insurance benefits

first_imgAre insurance benefits provided to board members considered taxable income? The answer is largely “yes,” but also, “it depends.”“The general rule under the tax code is something provided in return for services rendered is taxable income to the recipient (board member),” says R. Scott Richardson, JD, CLU, ChFC, president/CEO, IZALE Financial Group, a CUES Supplier member in Elgin, Illinois. “However, insurance benefits can be treated differently.”Richardson explains that while the value of accident and health insurance is not taxable for employees, it will likely be taxable for board members.“There are narrow exceptions where it would not be taxable income,” so consulting a tax advisor is worthwhile, he says. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Investors must ‘move beyond talking’ on climate risk disclosure – AODP

first_imgHe added that the writing was on the wall regarding transparency, and that leaders in the field were already fully disclosing all risks associated with climate change.“It’s time to accept the inevitable and embrace this change,” Poulter said.The warning came as the UK’s Prudential Regulation Authority warned that pension funds should not underestimate their fiduciary duty to consider the financial risks of climate change.In a report aimed at the insurance industry and launched by Bank of England governor Mark Carney, it outlined lawsuits brought in the US against pension trustees for failing to consider the financial risks associated with the “structural decline” of the coal industry.In a speech at Lloyd’s of London on Tuesday, Carney referenced the US lawsuits.“Cases like Arch Coal and Peabody Energy – where it is alleged the directors of corporate pension schemes failed in their fiduciary duties by not considering financial risks driven at least in part by climate change – illustrate the potential for long-tail risks to be significant, uncertain and non-linear.“These risks will only increase as the science and evidence of climate change hardens.”The AODP and ClientEarth previously warned that pension funds falling behind on climate-risk mitigation risked breaching their fiduciary duty. Institutional investors have been urged to back the “inevitable” shift towards even greater climate-risk transparency to protect investments against climate change risks.The Asset Owners Disclosure Project (AODP) said it was time for investors to “move beyond the talking” when it came to tackling the risk associated with climate change.Its chief executive Julian Poulter added that those leading the organisation’s index on climate-risk disclosure had proven investments could be protected “against a carbon crash and still make money”.“It’s time to focus attention on those laggards who are digging their heels in – some for ideological reasons and some out of negligence,” he said. last_img read more

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar won’t wear one of the NBA-approved social justice messages on the back of his jersey when the NBA resumes competition later this month in the Orlando bubble. As part of the NBA’s recognition of the nationwide invigoration of the social justice movement sparked by the death of George Floyd, NBA players are allowed to choose from a lengthy list of possible messages for their jerseys during the league’s restart.

The TIU, which investigates match-fixing cases in the sport, said Friday it received reports of the matches at private tournaments staged between April and June.The reports are filed by gambling companies who track unusual betting patterns around matches. Suspicious betting patterns don’t necessarily mean a match was fixed. A similar effect can also happen if insider information about a player’s injury leaks. Private tennis exhibitions have proliferated after the ATP and WTA tours closed down in March. Some have little or no oversight. Besides a smattering of events with big-name players, there are many smaller events around the world with low-ranked players.

New York manager Aaron Boone announced the news Saturday. He said Chapman “overall is doing well” but “will not be here for the foreseeable future.” Hours after Chapman’s diagnosis, Yankees slugger Aaron Judge was scratched from a simulated game with a stiff neck. New York is also without infielder DJ LeMahieu and right-hander Luis Cessa due to the virus. The AL East champion Yankees open the season July 23 at Washington. The Minnesota Wild, who face the Canucks in the qualifying round, have ruled out defenseman Greg Pateryn indefinitely with an upper-body injury. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Saturday the league will be taking over injury and illness disclosure from teams as a way of protecting player privacy. In other NHL news:— The NHL and the players union are credited for putting aside past differences in taking a collaborative approach in ratifying a return-to-play plan that also includes the assurance of labor peace through September 2026. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman described the months-long negotiations as unprecedented in how the two sides addressed the wide variety of concerns and challenges raised after placing the season on pause in March because of the new coronavirus pandemic. NHL Players’ Association chief Don Fehr said the pandemic forced both sides to work in “common spirit” in order to salvage what’s left of the season. —NHL Games are scheduled to begin Aug. 1 in Toronto and Edmonton, Alberta. Coronavirus cases in the U.S. are pushing the league into Canada for the summer and fall until the Stanley Cup is awarded in late September or early October. Chapman threw a bullpen session Tuesday and Boone wouldn’t comment on whether he had been at Yankee Stadium since. Boone said the team had gone through contact tracing protocols, and no other players or personnel would be forced to isolate because of Chapman’s positive test.In Houston, the Astros canceled their workout after learning that a staff member could have been exposed to a person outside the organization with the coronavirus. It’s the second time this week the Astros have canceled a workout because of concerns about the pandemic. Houston also scrapped its Monday workout because of delays with testing results due to the holiday weekend, as did some other teams around the majors. In other MLB news:— Texas Rangers outfielder Joey Gallo says he doesn’t know if he actually had the coronavirus despite two positive tests, since he never had any symptoms and also had multiple negative tests. Gallo said Saturday that he planned to have a more extensive antibody test to be sure after a finger-prick test didn’t indicate that he had COVID-19. The All-Star slugger missed the first week of the Rangers summer camp after two positive tests that sandwiched a negative result during intake testing. — Cleveland Indians outfielder Delino DeShields Jr. worked out with his teammates at training camp for the first time after being sidelined by the COVID-19 virus. DeShields had suffered some “mild symptoms” after testing positive with the virus before the Indians reported to Cleveland for the re-start of training camp last week. DeShields arrived a few days ago, but he was only cleared Saturday after twice testing negative. DeShields is one of 10 outfielders trying to win a spot on the club’s 30-man roster. He batted .249 and stole 24 bases in 118 games for the Rangers last season. — Yoenis Céspedes is sure he’ll be ready to start the pandemic-delayed season with the New York Mets. Out of the lineup for almost two years, the 34-year-old slugger said Saturday he finally is close to fully recovered from a string of injuries to his feet and legs. The Mets open at home July 24 against Atlanta. And with the designated hitter available in the National League this year, Céspedes is a prime candidate for that role during a shortened schedule of 60 games. The two-time All-Star missed last season and most of 2018. He had surgery on both heels and then broke his right ankle in a nasty fall at his Florida ranch.— Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill has tested positive for COVID-19. The team says after Bidwill developed symptoms, he tested positive and went to the hospital on the recommendation of his doctor. His condition has improved and he’s expected to be released this weekend. The team believes the 55-year-old Bidwill caught the virus while traveling and spending time on the East Coast for several weeks. He’s been working remotely since March and the team says he hasn’t had in-person contact coaches or players.— Albert Pujols’ 20th season in the majors is about to begin with the Los Angeles Angels. When it does, the 40-year-old slugger is likely to be the oldest player in the big leagues. Although time has chipped away at Pujols’ mountainous talent, he has never believed his advancing age will prevent him from putting up other big numbers on the diamond. His recent years of diminishing overall production have been counterbalanced by still-steady power numbers. They’ve done nothing to hurt his confidence as he heads into this short season with big plans.NBA-NEWSLeBron won’t wear social justice message on Lakers jersey INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tommy Johnson Jr. topped Funny Car qualifying Saturday at the NHRA Nationals in the series’ return from a more than four-month break because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Coaches Association Withdraws Rangers GM Chukwu As NFF Technical Committee Representative

first_imgRelated The Nigeria Football Coaches Association (NFCA) has recommended that the general manager of league champions Enugu Rangers, Christian Chukwu, is withdrawn as their representative on the technical committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).This was contained in a statement released after the emergency meeting of the body’s executive committee in Abuja earlier this week.The statement further pointed out that Christian Chukwu breached article 4:6 of the association’s statute after he failed to protect coach Imama Amapakabo from the injustice and unfair treatment meted out to him at Rangers.Article 4:6 states that – “To advice guide and protect all football coaches of the ‘FEDERATION’ from injustice and unfair treatment arising from their employment and services arising from directly or indirectly from their performance of their duties as coaches within any organised football entity whatsoever.”As a result of this breach, the executive committee therefore recommended his withdrawal pending his appearance before the body’s investigation and disciplinary committee.last_img read more

Inside the Dodgers: Are any postseason roster spots still up for grabs?

first_imgHere’s how I see things now:HittersLocks (11): Will Smith, Russell Martin, David Freese, Max Muncy, Corey Seager, Justin Turner, Cody Bellinger, Joc Pederson, A.J. Pollock, Chris Taylor, Kiké HernandezOn the bubble (3 players for 2 spots): Matt Beaty, Gavin Lux, Edwin RiosNot happening (3): Jedd Gyorko, Kristopher Negron, Austin Barnes Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Editor’s note: This is the Friday, Sept. 27 edition of the Inside the Dodgers newsletter. To receive the newsletter in your inbox, sign up here.The Dodgers have clinched the number-1 seed on the National League side of the playoff bracket. They won’t know their first-round opponent until next Tuesday’s wild card game is complete.Dave Roberts has said the final roster spots depend on the Dodgers’ first-round opponent. I tend to believe him. The Nationals, for example, are a largely capable group of hitters against left-handed pitchers. The Cardinals are not. For a relief pitcher on the bubble – right-hander Dylan Floro or left-hander Caleb Ferguson, for example – the opponent could dictate whether or not he watches from the Dodgers’ bullpen or from Camelback Ranch.With that in mind, I wanted to take another look at the Dodgers’ projected 25-man NLDS roster. Is anyone actually auditioning for something this weekend in San Francisco?center_img PitchersLocks (9): Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Rich Hill, Kenley Jansen, Pedro Baez, Kenta Maeda, Joe Kelly, Julio UríasOn the bubble: (6 players for 3 spots): Ross Stripling, Dustin May, Tony Gonsolin, Adam Kolarek, Caleb Ferguson, Casey Sadler, Dylan FloroNot happening (2): Josh Sborz, Yimi GarciaFirst, some injury-related caveats.1. Hill has one more start (Sunday against the Giants) to prove his knee can handle 2 or 3 innings on a mound. I’m only calling Hill a “lock” on the premise that his knee holds up. If it doesn’t, I imagine the Dodgers would plug Urías into his spot. Maybe Gonsolin or Stripling. The ability to pitch 2-3 innings seems to be the main qualifier for whomever starts Game 4. It’ll be a bullpen game regardless of who pitches and when.2. We can only take Kelly and Roberts at their word when they say Kelly is going to be ready for the postseason. If you buy that, then Kelly’s next appearance is not a test of his health, but a tuneup. If it is a test – of what, neither will say – and Kelly does not pass, then another short-inning reliever would need to take his place.3. Seager’s latest hamstring injury is a good omen for Lux’s chances of making the final cut. Turner’s back injury might help Beaty. If some roster “insurance” for Seager or Turner is unwarranted, both Lux and Beaty probably make it anyway.As for where the few remaining “position battles” stand …BenchThe first time I ran this exercise, I nearly penciled in Beaty and Lux as locks. (Lux as locks. Heh.) I almost did it again, in spite of how they’ve hit lately. Beaty is 1 for his last 20. Lux is 1 for his last 16. If Scott Elbert and Brian Dozier can get postseason roster spots, these guys can too, though I wonder if Edwin Rios’ surprise September call-up (3 for 9, two HRs) has changed the internal conversations at all. All three are left-handed hitters with pop. Rios’ lack of positional versatility might off-set his value as a pinch hitter, so even a 470-foot home run into San Francisco Bay might not get Rios in at this point.BullpenThere are a lot of wrinkles here. Some if-then scenarios. Let’s start with the big “if.”Roberts asked Kolarek and Kenta Maeda to pitch the ninth inning of a 1-0 win Thursday because Jansen wasn’t allowed to pitch three days in a row. For those of you who just tuned in, you might think the manager is open to using that ninth-inning committee in similar situations in October. Dave Roberts says he’s open to a lot of things, but ninth-inning committees aren’t one.Before Wednesday, Jansen had not converted save opportunities on consecutive days since May. While closing the Dodgers’ first two wins over the Padres, Jansen looked downright normal. If back-to-back scoreless innings against the Padres counts as “earning the closer’s job,” then maybe Jansen is not the question mark I envisioned three weeks ago. But that’s a big “if.” It’s the big “if.” Right now, with three games remaining, Jansen, Maeda and Kolarek all look like necessary ninth-inning options. That means they’re all in.In his seven relief appearances since Sept. 7, May has used his two-seam fastball to neuter right-handed hitters, and his four-seamer to neuter lefties. The two pitches regularly clock in at 95-99 mph. His low-90s cutter has been an effective if unconventional “off-speed pitch” in short situations. For the Dodgers, this was the best-case scenario.May has adjusted to his new role. Kolarek has been dominating his, for the most part. If Kelly is healthy – also a best-case scenario for the Dodgers – that leaves one bullpen job for Gonsolin, Stripling, Ferguson, Sadler and Floro. Woof.I think we can safely peg Sadler and Floro as the longshots here. They’re essentially right-handed specialists, Floro more so than Sadler. Floro is the bigger liability against left-handers, while Sadler’s 2.23 ERA looks a bit deceiving. They’re both behind Maeda, Baez and Kelly in the bullpen pecking order. Those three all offer the added bonus of postseason experience, the ability to pitch multiple innings, and a better chance of retiring the occasional lefty. I think Sadler and Floro are out.Ferguson has emerged as an unusually versatile relief pitcher. Since Aug. 1, the left-hander is almost evenly dominant against lefties and righties. I could make the case for him to take Kolarek’s role, but Roberts seems content with what he’s gotten from his designated LOOGY. If the Dodgers weren’t planning to throw their entire bullpen at Game 4, Ferguson would have an even better case than Floro or Sadler to be the final pick.As things stand, however, I imagine Roberts and Andrew Friedman will want to guard against the danger of a bullpen game that runs too long. Asking three or more pitchers to tag-team six or seven innings isn’t monumental. If Game 4 is tied after nine innings, however, managing workloads becomes a bit dicey – for that game and for the remainder of the series. Stripling and Gonsolin have pitched up to five innings as recently as August. Ferguson hasn’t completed three innings in a game all year. That’s why I think Ferguson draws the short straw here – only because Hill couldn’t stay healthy enough in September to start 5+ innings in the NLDS.The two remaining options are both attractive. Despite a shaky first inning Wednesday, Stripling has been reliable overall this month. Gonsolin has limited his September opponents to a miniscule .504 OPS, but seven walks in 11 innings might not cut it. Throw in Stripling’s experience and I give him a slight edge for the final roster spot over Gonsolin.Whether the Dodgers draw the Cardinals, Brewers or Nationals in the first round could determine who gets the final bullpen spot. So could the health of Hill and Kelly. Gonsolin has had two poor innings all month: one last Wednesday against the Rays, and another Sept. 7 against the Giants. Maybe one good outing by Gonsolin and one bad outing by Stripling this weekend shifts the balance.There’s a broader takeaway here, too. Back on Aug. 1, fans were up in arms when the Dodgers failed to consummate a trade for Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez. Friedman chose to build a new bullpen out of his existing parts instead. At a distance, that might have sounded like a hope and a prayer. Yet since Aug. 1, the Dodgers’ bullpen has been one of the best in baseball just about any way you slice it. Their internal options for October are bountiful, and Vazquez is in jail. What a difference two months makes.-J.P.Editor’s note: Thanks for reading the Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

Fishermen are Pulling Deformed Fish out of Lake O

first_imgFisherman Jason Blair believes the FWC’s aquatic spraying program is destroying Lake Okeechobee’s vegetation and grotesquely deforming fish.This comes after anglers from across the region have documented fish after fish with what they say are tumors, large lesions, and deformities that are stomach-churning.“Week after week, day after day, we’re pulling out damage fish with tumors and burn marks on their sides and it’s just a terrible thing,” said Blair. “Tumors on a fish is definitely unusual and something I have not seen before until the last couple of months in these heavily sprayed areas.”But FWC officials say herbicide spraying is needed to control the spread of non-native invasive plants that block navigation channels and crowd out native plants.Herbicides registered for use in aquatic environments undergo years of rigorous evaluation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, before an herbicide may be used in Florida waters, it must be registered with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. During this process, state health and environmental agencies comment on new herbicides. In order for an aquatic herbicide to pass the registration process, it must not pose a reasonable threat to human health and safety.Meanwhile, on the Treasure Coast, Representative Brian Mast said many times before, if we wouldn’t put it in the bathtub with our children or grandchildren, then it doesn’t belong in our waterways. That standard extends to spraying as well.last_img read more

A Judge Declares a Mistrial in Murder Trial of a Retired PBSO Officer

first_imgOn Tuesday a Palm Beach County judge declared a mistrial in the high profile murder trial of a former Palm Beach County deputy who was accused of shooting and killing his son-in-law in 2018.The retired officer, Carlton Nebergall Jr., is charged with first-degree murder after he shot and killed Jacob Lodge. Nebergall claimed it was an act of self defense.The arrest report stated that Nebergall’s daughter claimed her husband Lodge showed up to her home to exchange clothing for their two children, and Nebergall walked out as Lodge attempted to leave the house and shot him.On Monday Nebergall said that Lodge had a violent history. He told the jury he walked outside that night with a loaded revolver and fired a warning shot into the air. Lodge then left and later returned in an attempt to “look for something.” That’s when Nebergall said he “feared for his life” and shot Lodge in the head.Attorneys said the mistrial was declared on Tuesday because a juror was on his cell phone as the defense team was delivering their closing arguments. The jury was dismissed, and a brand new jury will have to be picked later on.last_img read more

Schoolboy players inconsistent – Stewart

first_imgVeteran coach Bradley Stewart believes the current Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association/FLOW Manning Cup and daCosta Cup competitions are gifted with talented players, but points to faulty thinking and decision-making for inconsistent performances and poor results.”Young players will one day play up here. Another day, they play down here. Until we can get the majority of our players to be thinking the same way, we are gonna have problems,” he said of teams in the competition.Stewart, a former assistant coach for the Reggae Boyz, is now in his second season in charge of Calabar High. Before that, he won the Walker Cup title at Jamaica College.The coach maintains that he is hopeful of Calabar’s chances this season, considering that about half of last year’s team have returned.He said Calabar’s strengths are coordination and passing, but again blamed inconsistent defending in games.The Red Hills Road-based school remains unbeaten with two wins and two draws, and lie in second place in Group A on eight points, two behind defending champions Jamaica College, who they drew 2-2 with in their first game this season.WEAKNESS AMONG TEAMS”What I would suggest is that consistency is not necessarily a strength of schoolboy players. When you look at St George’s College, they were able to beat a team 9-0 in the second match. They still won the [other] game, but by two goals against a team that is not regarded as championship contender,” assessed Stewart.He added: “When you look out in the country for example, Cornwall College demolished a team 8-1, then drew the other game 1-1. So there seems to be a inconsistency among young players – how they themselves see the game, how they see opposing teams. A lot of times, this factors into how they approach games.”The coach also criticised aspects of refereeing in the match where Calabar drew 1-1 with Clan Carthy High, which was played at the Alpha Boys’ football field last Friday.last_img read more

Govt regularises part-time sweeper/cleaners

first_imgAfter several protestsFollowing recent protest action, part-time sweeper/cleaners of public schools in Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara/Berbice), have welcomed a decision to have their positions regularised. Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU) Regional Representative Maurice Butters related the news to several workers, who were happy that their plight had finally been addressed by Government.Butters shared information from a circular which was sent by Permanent Secretary within the Education Ministry, Vibert Welch, dated March 8, 2018, which indicated that consequent to the review of the hours of work for sweeper/cleaners, aFlashback: Sweeper-cleaners during the protest in front of the Education Ministrydecision has been taken to regularise the employment of part-time workers employed in public schools across the 10 Regions.It stated that approval was granted for sweeper/cleaners to be paid the minimum hourly wage rate of $312 each hour they work; that they be guaranteed 12 months’ pay; that their working hours will not exceed 8 hours per day and five days per week, and that they will be allowed to work at least 20 days per month for the entire calendar year.The sweepers/cleaners will be granted at least 12 working days annually as paid annual leave, which will be utilized during school breaks. Prior to the decision, the sweeper/cleaners were paid $24,740 monthly, and worked four to six hours per day.Butters said while he is happy with the decision, the circular is vague and does not specify when or how the system of regularisation will be implemented. He stressed that there has been no word on same from the Region 10 Democratic Council (RDC), although he personally delivered the circular to the office since Saturday last. Butters said despite several attempts, he was unsuccessful in getting word from the Regional administration as to the way forward, as he stressed that new employment letters are now necessary for the workers, in moving forward. The employees also indicated that they wished for all these to be sorted out before the start of the new term, as Butters emphasized that he will continue to press for a meeting with the regional administration.Sweeper/cleaners from Linden and Georgetown have been protesting Government for better wages since last year. The workers went as far as staging a protest at the Ministry of the Presidency, Finance Ministry and the Education’ Ministry’s Department of Culture Youth and Sport, demanding that their cries be heard.last_img read more

Vargas to leave school district

first_imgUnder Vargas, HLPUSD started a regular televised program about the district, a visual and performing arts foundation, and a technology program in partnership with Dell Inc. But his tenure was also marked by controversy. Students at Workman High School held protests last school year over the policies and leadership of former principal Sergio Garcia, and said Vargas’ administration was unresponsive to their concerns. The district also faces a budget crisis, and over the next three school years must cut spending by $10 million, or about 8 percent of its operating budget. “My biggest concern is the financial crisis the district finds itself in,” said John Crowther, Hacienda La Puente Teachers Association president. “I don’t think it’s totally related to declining enrollment. The district needs to get its spending under control. “I wish him luck,” Crowther said. “The teachers are looking forward to working with whoever replaces him.” School board member Joseph Chang said he hopes to find a new superintendent who will stay for a long period of time. “We cannot rush into it. It’s very difficult to find a good superintendent who can stay for a while,” he said, adding a search could last three to six months. If they cannot find someone quickly, they may hire an interim superintendent, he said. Staff Writer Esther Chou contributed to this story.

The most important thing is to cut the budget without hurting students or educational programs, he said. Hsu said Vargas’ biggest accomplishment was improving academic performance, pointing to the district’s increased API scores and five newly named California Distinguished Schools. Before working at HLPUSD, which serves about 60,000 students, Vargas was superintendent of Santa Fe Public Schools in New Mexico and superintendent of Ysleta Independent School District in Texas. He has a doctorate in educational leadership and policy studies from the University of Washington. His salary reported in January was $187,000. He was recently a finalist for a superintendent’s job in Las Vegas. Superintendent Edward Lee Vargas has announced he will leave Hacienda La Puente Unified School District at the end of the school year. Vargas has accepted a job as superintendent-in-residence for a “nonprofit foundation, dedicated to social justice and educational reform,” according to a letter he sent to district employees. Vargas would not give the name of the organization he will work for, but said it serves school districts nationwide. He would not comment on his departure other than to release a one-sentence prepared statement saying it had been an honor to serve as the district’s superintendent. last_img read more

INQUEST OF ELDERLY COUPLE CANNOT TAKE PLACE UNTIL MURDER TRIAL

first_imgJulian Cuddihy arrives at a previous court sitting. Pic by Northwest News Pix.An inquest into the deaths of an elderly Inishowen couple cannot go ahead until a High Court case is heard in Dublin.Carndonagh Coroner’s Court has heard that the inquests of Jimmy and Kathleen Cuddihy cannot proceed until a trial takes place. The couple, both aged in their seventies, died after being violently attacked in their Churchtown, Carn home on Wednesday, October 22, 2014.Two days later, their son Julian Cuddihy (44) was charged with the murder at a special sitting of Ballyshannon District Court.Garda Superintendent Eugene McGovern said the inquest, when it happens, will “definitely take more than a day.”Coroner, retired doctor John Madden, said he would “like to get it completed in July if possible”.However Supt McGovern said he “cannot see that happening.”“I would say it definitely will not be ready by July.”Dr. Madden asked if the Cuddihy inquest could go ahead in July if Julian were to plead guilty in June.However Supt McGovern still didn’t think so.“Even if there is a guilty plea or a plea of insanity, that will require a lot of evidence and medical reports. It’s highly unlikely to be ready.”Dr. Madden and Supt McGovern agreed to set a ‘provisional’ inquest date of July 22.“We’ll be in a position by then to know the attitude of the defence. We will know what will have happened on June 7,” Supt McGovern told the Carn sitting of the Coroner’s Court.Members of the Cuddihy family did not attend Friday’s short Coroner’s Court hearing but solicitor Ray Lannon maintained a watching brief on their behalf.At the joint-funeral of Kathleen and Jimmy Cuddihy in October 2014, the couple’s daughter Maureen made a public appeal urging local families to seek immediate help for anyone they suspected to be suffering from mental health problems.INQUEST OF ELDERLY COUPLE CANNOT TAKE PLACE UNTIL MURDER TRIAL was last modified: April 5th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CarndonaghdonegalInishowenJulian Cuddihymurdersonlast_img read more

PALS OF TAKEAWAY ATTACK THUG ISSUE ONLINE THREATS TO VICTIMS

first_imgMcMenamin didn’t even issue an apology in courtSICK friends of a thug who attacked a defenceless couple in a food outlet have issued threats against their supporters.Trolls took to Facebook to defend thug Cillian McMenamin after he was jailed for a year for an outrageous attack on a couple in Dungloe. McMenamin lashed out at Patrick McKelvey and his wife Sharon as they stopped for something to eat after work in the town in April last year.They both suffered severe injuries when Mr McKelvey objected to racist abuse being dished out to staff at the Midnight Express outlet.McMenamin didn’t apologise in court for his behaviour.And when local people rallied around the McKelveys to give them support in the wake of McMenamin’s conviction, they faced dire abuse – and threats – from his supporters.“Disapproval of his behavior on the night of the attack on the McKelvey couple as expressed in Facebook comments by local outraged people were answered by Cillian’s support group who wanted to claim that his behaviour could be explained entirely in terms of his addiction problems and lack of experience, in such a way as to convince them of their lack of compassion and understanding,” said one local woman.“This argument forced them to withdraw their comments. I received a private message informing me of my own family’s shortcomings, and urging me to reconsider my comments, in the light of my own shortcomings, and those of my family.“It is interesting that Cillian’s support group actually have the power to silence the people who want to publicly disapprove of what he did to the McKelveys, perhaps in the vain hope that if similar attacks happen again in the town, it will be blamed on a misunderstanding of racial points of view, inexperience, and the power of addiction.”Another supporter of the McKelveys told us: “I was also threatened to withdraw comments in their support. It was just incredible.“These people are blinded to what happened; it was all ok for them that something like this could happen. It would fit them better to apologise instead of making excuses for this moron.”McMenamin was jailed for a year by Judge Paul Kelly who described the incident as outrageous.PALS OF TAKEAWAY ATTACK THUG ISSUE ONLINE THREATS TO VICTIMS was last modified: June 23rd, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:assaultattackCillian McMenamindungloelast_img read more

Geological Processes Can Be Rapid

first_imgFor those trained to think in millions of years, these geological processes should sound surprising.Why should geological change take a long time? We know from experience that some things don’t change during our lifetimes: mountain ranges we’ve seen that look the same since we grew up, beaches we have visited for decades, national parks and the like. Some earth formations have not changed since ancient times, we know from ruins and from written documents. This does not mean that the formation of these structures had to be slow and gradual. Every once in awhile, scientists report processes that are extremely rapid—some occurring within a day. Other processes are hard to imagine taking millions of years. Take a look at these examples:UNDERWATER VOLCANOVast ‘pumice raft’ found drifting through Pacific Ocean (BBC News). Watch the video clip in this article. A couple sailing their boat from Australia to Fiji found themselves surrounded by rocks: floating pumice, enough to cover 20,000 football fields. They couldn’t even see the water. It “rocked” their boat, making a grinding sound. What happened? A volcano had erupted on the sea floor, releasing vast quantities of the stuff. It looked like the whole sea surface had turned to land. It didn’t, of course; the pumice will eventually disperse and sink.On the bright side, if the pumice raft floats in the right direction, it might resupply the Great Barrier Reef with surface material on which new algae and coral can grow, Live Science says. Over the last 3 years, the famous reef has suffered the most catastrophic “bleaching” ever seen. Since pumice can carry barnacles and corals, it could “restock” the reef, scientists say.Pumice rafts are formed when an underwater volcano erupts, releasing large chunks of lava that are full of holes and cavities,  making it easy for the raft to float, according to the Earth Observatory…Pumice rafts are often teeming with sea life, such as new barnacles and corals, Scott Bryan, a professor of geology and geochemistry at Queensland University of Technology, told CNN. Bryan reported in a 2012 study that these rocky rafts can be a way to redistribute life across the ocean.If Bryan is correct with this recent idea, sea life could be distributed worldwide in short order. It would not take millions of years, because underwater volcanoes are not that rare. A particularly large eruption was detected in 2018 (see 17 Jan 2018).The Dead Sea has been shrinking about a meter per year. The shores now have deep gullies and sinkholes. Photo: DFCTHE DEAD SEAWhy Is It ‘Snowing’ Salt in the Dead Sea? (Live Science). Salt crystals are precipitating at a rapid rate in the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth (1,300 feet below sea level), and collecting on the bottom. Geologists have figured out what makes the salt “snow” downward in the vast salt lake. It’s a process unique to the Dead Sea. Mindy Waisberger explains:A mysterious underwater “snowfall” of salt is falling and accumulating far below the surface of the Dead Sea.For decades the already-salty Dead Sea has been slowly getting saltier as its fresh water steadily evaporates. And the behavior of some of this excess salt seems to defy the laws of physics. As expected, plenty of salt collects near the sea’s surface, buoyed up by cooler water below. But a steady supply of salt also inexplicably travels steadily downward, piling up at the sea bottom. Recently, scientists cracked this long-standing mystery. They found that almost undetectable disturbances in the upper layers of water create so-called salt fingers that extend into the cool water, carrying salt deeper than it would normally be expected to go.One has to ask how long this process could go on. The Dead Sea has “been around for thousands of years,” the article mentions (interestingly, not “millions”). With evaporation increasing, why is it not a dry hard pan of salt by now?“Together these small fingers generate a tremendous amount of salt flux,” lead study author Raphael Ouillon, a UCSB mechanical engineer, said in a statement.Over decades, the salty snow in the Dead Sea has accumulated significantly, Meiburg said.“These deposits are about 4 meters [13 feet] thick today, and their thickness is growing at a rate of about 10 centimeters [4 inches] per year,” he said in the email to Live Science.A simple calculation shows the current salt layer could accumulate in just 400 years, although the rate of accumulation might not be linear. But even if it were 100 times slower, it would fall short of one million years, let alone billions. The article claims that other very thick salt deposits on earth might have been built this way. But without being able to observe those forming, that’s only a guess. Other hypotheses can explain vast salt deposits by different, more rapid processes than evaporation.GEOTHERMAL REVISIONSYellowstone’s newest thermal area: An up-close and personal visit! (USGS). Geologists found a new thermal area emerging within one year. The backcountry thermal area killed trees and bleached the soil white. Some parts became so hot they turned the bottoms of fallen trees into charcoal.There was no water discharging from the new thermal area, but there was an arch-shaped core of warm ground, 70-80°C at the surface, that was covered in fallen trees. This zone was surrounded by cooler ground that was also littered with recently fallen trees. Within the warmest area, there were steam emissions from several points, and sulfur crystals lined some of the steaming areas. The ground temperature in these fumaroles was 92°C (198°F)—the boiling temperature at that elevation (about 8000 feet or 2500 meters). Throughout this zone, just 5-10 cm below the surface, the temperatures were consistently boiling.While the Yellowstone caldera is known for its dynamic changes, the scientists were a bit surprised: “These observations raise many questions about the formation and evolution of the thermal area,” they say. Some features, like the large geyser cones, were once thought to take tens of thousands of years or more to form. T. Scott Bryan, author of The Geysers of Yellowstone (4th ed. 2008), shows how a correction to that dating became necessary. Discussing Castle Geyser, which has one of the largest cones, he says,Sign at Giant Geyser with its 12-foot cone says thousands of years, not millions. Photo by DFC, 2015.Castle’s large cone suggests a great age, but that appearance might be deceiving. Age dating of the broad geyserite mound beneath the cone, using a dating process only recently developed in New Zealand, implies that the cone itself formed in not more than 10,400 years and likely in less than 8,800 years. (page 59)That’s stated as an upper limit. It is certainly conceivable that the cone is actually younger. Heightened splashing activity after the last eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano could  be expected to have built the cone faster. That could also be true of the other large cones, like White Dome and Lone Star, which splash water above their rims frequently. One might even ask why there are so many frequently-erupting geysers with small cones if they have existed for tens or hundreds of thousands of years.ROCKFALLHiker captures massive rockfall that injured three in Zion (KSTU, Salt Lake City). Last Saturday, a huge rockfall in Zion National Park was caught on video by someone a safe distance away. It injured three, almost covered a bus, and carpeted much of the valley with dust and sand. We reported another big one in Zion just three years ago (8 Nov 2016). Could the canyon walls endure hundreds of millions of years?OTHER RAPID PROCESSESIn addition to those listed above, which surprised researchers, consider rapid changes that can occur through:EarthquakesVolcanoesTsunamisFloodsMeteorsKimberlites (see 19 Sept 2012)Tectonic rifts (see 9 Dec 2005)Indeed, the question of age could be inverted: given how quickly some formations have been observed to change, how could other formations be as old as claimed?Don Batten at Creation Ministries International has put together a handy list, “Age of the earth: 101 evidences for a young age of the earth and the universe” at the convenient address, creation.com/age-of-the-earth. Scan over this list and be amazed at how much evidence, from fields as diverse as astronomy, geology, biology, genetics, and anthropology dispute the moyboy mindset. If even a tenth of those 101 evidences were proved indisputable by skeptics, it would bring Darwin’s long ages crashing down, along with the evolutionary story that needs the time. Batten sources each one with previous CMI articles that are referenced with mostly secular sources. People need some deprogramming from the myths evolutionists have taught in schools and national parks. (Visited 665 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Devils Shoot Down Jackets, 3-2

first_imgNEWARK, N.J. — The New Jersey Devils are off to a solid start, thanks in part to a diversified offensive attack. So far this season, 17 players have already scored a goal.Defenseman Adam Larsson, who has played in only three of New Jersey’s 11 games this season, was the latest to score when he gave the Devils the lead with 9:25 left en route to a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the slumping Columbus Blue Jackets on Nov. 1.The 21-year-old Larsson, the No. 4 pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, capped a comeback in which the Devils (6-3-2) erased a 2-1 deficit in a span of 1:41.Larsson took a pass from captain and fellow defenseman Bryce Salvador and snapped a shot past goalie Anton Forsberg, who made his NHL debut.“I’m very happy to get a good play there,” Larsson said. “I got the puck and saw a lot of room in front of me. I saw a lot of the net open, so I shot it.“It was a good feeling for me. We have seven good defensemen on this team, and we can all score. We just have to keep it up.”Earlier in the third period, Adam Henrique scored a power play-goal — his fourth tally of the season — off an assist from Jaromir Jagr. Marek Zidlicky got New Jersey even at 1 with a power-play goal in the second period.Jagr was a little upset with the Devils’ play in the first two periods.“How many times can we expect to come back like that?” said Jagr, referring to the previous two New Jersey victories in which third-period deficits were erased.The Devils defeated Winnipeg in a shootout on Oct. 30 after entering the third period trailing by a goal.“We have to look at it in a positive way, but we didn’t play well for the first two periods,” Jagr said. “The third period, we put it together. We can make things go a lot easier if we just play the right way.”Cory Schneider made 32 saves for the Devils.“He was our best player again,” Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. “We’ve been able to get some good wins because of him lately. Look at all the good teams, and they’re the ones who are getting the best goaltending. We needed this win.”Jack Skille and Nick Foligno scored for the Blue Jackets (4-7), who lost their fifth straight game.“It’s disappointing because we had a 2-1 lead in the third period and couldn’t finish,” Columbus coach Todd Richards said. “We did everything right for two periods and end up on the wrong side. We made a couple of mistakes, and they won the game.”Columbus grabbed a 1-0 lead when Skille scored just 1:06 into the game. Skille took a great pass from the recently recalled Brian Gibbons and fired it past Schneider.In the second period, just eight seconds after Blue Jackets right wing Jared Boll was sent off for hooking, Zidlicky fired in a wrist shot after skating in untouched.The Blue Jackets regained the lead, again on a power play. With Travis Zajac off for hooking, Jack Johnson timed a perfect pass to Foligno, who was set up just outside the crease. Foligno got the puck and slapped it past Schneider with 7:30 left in the period.Foligno later left the ice after he was hit in the face with a puck. He skated off the ice on his own, but went straight to the dressing room for evaluation. Foligno returned for the third period.The Blue Jackets lost rookie defenseman Cody Goloubef to an apparent knee injury late in the game. Goloubef was helped off the ice, and his playing status is unknown.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Yanks Sweep The Rays, 5-3

first_imgST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The New York Yankees completed their best trip to Tampa Bay in a decade with their first sweep this season.Chase Headley and Mark Teixeira drove in two runs each, and the Yankees beat the Rays 5-3 April 19 to complete a three-game sweep.“You make up a little bit for the slow start,” Headley said. “We didn’t play well, really, in any facet the first couple series.”New York (6-6) reached .500 for the first time since it was 1-1. The Yankees swept a series of three or more games at Tampa Bay for the first time since Sept. 13-15, 2005.Headley had an RBI single off Matt Andriese (0-1) in a two-run third to help the Yankees go ahead 3-2.

After Ryan Brett doubled leading off the ninth for his first big league hit, Andrew Miller struck out three straight batters for his fourth save.“It feels good,” Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said. “You’re getting contributions up and down the lineup. The bullpen came in and did a really good job. Got some good starting pitching. Those are the things you need to be consistent.”Steven Souza Jr. homered and drove in three runs for the Rays. “It’s just a bump in the road,” Souza said.David DeJesus drew a rare road walk from Pineda leading off the first and scored on Souza’s homer for a 2-1 lead. In 10 road starts with the Yankees, Pineda has walked three in 48 2-3 innings.Souza cut the Rays’ deficit to 5-3 with an RBI double in the fifth. Andriese gave up four runs and eight hits in 3 1-3 innings.(MARK DIDTLER)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Samsung Galaxy A90 with Snapdragon 855, 45W fast charging may launch by October

first_imgThe Samsung Galaxy A90 is shaping up to be an exciting new addition to the Galaxy A series based on everything we have been hearing off late. Rumours in the past have suggested that the Galaxy A90 will be the company’s first mid-range phone to rock a Snapdragon 855 chipset. It is also said to come with 5G support and 45W fast charging support, among other things. These features were once again reiterated by a popular tipster who also said that the Galaxy A90 may launch by October.Tipster Ice Universe has been pretty reliable when it comes to news about Samsung’s upcoming products. On Wednesday, the tipster tweeted that the Galaxy A90 will be powered by a Snapdragon 855 SoC and will only come in a 5G version. It would also make the Galaxy A90 one of the cheapest 5G phones in the second half of the year. He adds that the Galaxy A90 will feature a waterdrop display (perhaps an Infinity-U display) with a FHD+ resolution.Galaxy A90 only has 5G version, Snapdragon 855 processor, is one of the cheapest 5G mobile phones in the second half of the year, will be launched in September or October, with water drop design, FHD + screen, design in general, the main 5G.Ice universe (@UniverseIce) July 10, 2019In the same tweet, the tipster claimed that the Galaxy A90 will be launched in September or October. This makes sense as Samsung will be reserving the next few weeks to hype up the launch of the Galaxy Note 10 on August 7.advertisementNot only is the Galaxy A90 rumoured to come with a large 4,500mAh battery, but it will also be Samsung’s first smartphone to support up to 45W fast charging. In recent times, Samsung has been introducing new technologies in its Galaxy A-series phones rather than its flagship series’ so a 45W fast charging support for the Galaxy A90 is believable.Past rumours also say that the Galaxy A90 will sport a 6.7-inch display and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The phone is also said to come with a feature called Tilt OIS, which seems to suggest a new stabilisation technology for the camera. Additionally, we should also expect a triple camera setup on the back with a 48MP main camera, an ultra wide-angle lens and a depth sensor or telephoto lens.ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e review: Great mid-range Android tablet but not a laptop replacementALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy Note 10 first official photos leak out, here’s what it will look likelast_img read more

US West Coast Port Workers Sue Terminal Operators

first_imgzoom US West Coast longshore workers have filed suit with the district court in Los Angeles against the terminal operators asking for compensation of their health costs.Some 300,000 claims are being submitted saying that the Pacific Maritime Association’s health plan was in violation of the federal law.Should the court rule in favour of port workers, the claims could reach up to USD 100 million in unpaid costs, Michael McClelland, co-counsel for the plaintiffs in the case, is quoted by Long Beach Press Telegram as saying.Apart from PMA, the lawsuit names Zenith American Solutions and Cigna Inc., the current and former third-party administrators of the employee health plan for the workers, along with PMA trustees who manage the plan, the newspaper said.The PMA and ILWU reached a tentative agreement at the end of February on a new five-year contract covering workers at all 29 West Coast ports after nine months of talks.Details of the agreement have not been released. However, the deal has enabled the port operations to be resumed so as to unclog the congested ports.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

PepsiCos profit edges up on stronger snack sales North American drinks falter

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Americans are gobbling up more of PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay snacks. As for the company’s sodas, customers are apparently less enthusiastic.That’s the quandary for PepsiCo Inc., the soda and snack maker that also owns Gatorade, Mountain Dew, Tropicana and Quaker Oats. Although the company’s Cheetos, Doritos and other snacks dominate supermarket shelves, its North American drinks unit has perennially played second fiddle to the world’s No. 1 beverage maker, Coca-Cola.That story line played out yet again in the company’s third quarter, with PepsiCo reporting a better-than-expected profit as stronger snack sales helped offset a 4 per cent volume decline for the North American drinks unit.Soda volume fell in the region fell in the “mid-single digits,” which PepsiCo partly attributed to its strategy of holding or raising prices. Uncarbonated drinks fell in the “low-single digits.”Coca-Cola reported stronger results for its North American unit a day earlier, with overall volume up 2 per cent. Uncarbonated drinks rose 5 per cent and soda volume was even from a year ago.Despite the volume declines in PepsiCo’s North American beverage unit, CEO Indra Nooyi stressed in a conference call with analysts that the broader $95 billion beverage industry remains a “pretty damn good business” in terms of generating cash for the company.She also suggested that the company’s fortunes could turn as people move away from sodas, given PepsiCo’s leadership position in uncarbonated drinks. Gatorade, for example, leads Coca-Cola’s Powerade in the sports drink category.She noted that sodas now account for about 40 per cent of the beverage industry, down from more than 50 per cent a decade ago, and that the shift away from carbonated soft drinks continues.In the meantime, PepsiCo’s drink business remains a sensitive topic for the company. Activist investor Nelson Peltz’s Trian Fund Management is pushing the company to spin off the beverage unit entirely and merge its remaining food business with Oreo cookie maker Mondelez International.Executives at PepsiCo have shot down the suggestion, saying the company plans to move ahead as a combined drinks and snacks maker. Still, PepsiCo is reviewing a restructuring of its North American beverage unit and plans to update investors on that front early next year.For the quarter, PepsiCo said higher prices helped lift revenue in Europe by 3 per cent. Snacks volume rose while beverage volume slipped.In the region encompassing Asia, the Middle East and Africa, revenue rose 6 per cent on higher prices when excluding the impact of restructuring changes and unfavourable currency exchange rates.PepsiCo earned $1.91 billion, or $1.23 per share, for the three months ending Sept. 7. That compares with $1.9 billion, or $1.21 per share, a year ago when there were more shares outstanding.Not including one-time items, the company said it earned $1.24 per share, above the $1.17 per share analysts expected.Revenue rose 2 per cent to $16.91 billion, less than the $17.02 billion Wall Street expected. The company stood by its full-year earnings forecast for core earnings per share to grow 7 per cent.Shares of PepsiCo rose 1.5 per cent to $81.84. Over the past year, the stock is up almost 15 per cent.___Follow Candice Choi at www.twitter.com/candicechoi by Candice Choi, The Associated Press Posted Oct 16, 2013 5:16 am MDT PepsiCo’s profit edges up on stronger snack sales; North American drinks falter read more

Canadian dollar declines ahead of Bank of Canada rate announcement

Canadian dollar declines ahead of Bank of Canada rate announcement by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted May 30, 2014 6:48 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Canadian dollar was lower Monday morning as traders digested a strong read on Chinese manufacturing and looked ahead to key domestic data coming out this week.The loonie slipped 0.15 of a cent to 92.08 cents US two days before the Bank of Canada delivers its next announcement on interest rates. The key rate will stay unchanged at one per cent, where it’s been since September 2010.Economists will look to see if the central bank continues to flag concerns about low inflation being the No.1 concern since inflation has been heading higher recently.Canada’s annual inflation rate climbed to its highest level in two years, reaching two per cent in April, largely driven by an unusually big jump in energy prices.Canadian job figures for May come out Friday and economists expect about 21,000 jobs were created after the economy shed 29,000 the previous month.Statistics Canada will also release the merchandise trade balance for April on Wednesday. Economists expect it to show a $100 million surplus.Meanwhile, copper prices got a lift from strong Chinese manufacturing data.The July copper contract was up four cents to US$3.16 a pound after the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing said that its monthly manufacturing index rose to 50.8 points in May, up from April’s reading of 50.4 and was the highest level this year. Any reading above 50 indicates expansion.Elsewhere on the commodity markets, July crude in New York was up a dime to US$102.81 a barrel.July bullion headed 80 cents higher to US$1,246.80 after losing 3.5 per cent last week with markets feeling more comfortable about the Ukraine crisis and more concerned about deflation rather than inflation, particularly in Europe.It is widely expected that European Central Bank president Mario Draghi will announce measures on Thursday aimed at raising inflation from very low levels and encouraging a lacklustre economic recovery.It’s also a busy week for economic reports in the U.S.On Monday, traders will take in the latest reading on the health of the American manufacturing sector. Economists expect the Institute for Supply Management’s index for May to come in at 55.5, up from 54.9 in April.Economists also forecast another month of strong job gains in the U.S. They expect the government’s non-farm payrolls report coming out Friday will show that the American economy cranked out about 219,000 jobs following a much stronger expected 288,000 gain in April. read more

Halifaxbased CanJet suspends flying operations looks for new business plan

Halifax-based CanJet suspends flying operations, looks for new business plan A CanJet aircraft flies over the Halifax International Airport on Sept. 5, 2006. The Halifax-based charter airline CanJet suspended its flight operations today, saying it is redoubling its efforts to find a profitable business plan. THE CANADIAN PRESS/ Andrew Vaughan HALIFAX – The Halifax-based charter airline CanJet suspended its flight operations Tuesday, saying it is redoubling its efforts to find a profitable business plan.Company president Stephen Rowe said the company isn’t shutting down, but he confirmed that its remaining 15 pilots and about 40 flight attendants were laid off.“We just haven’t found that business model that we’re comfortable with,” Rowe said in an interview. “We’re going to keep looking. We’re not closing. … We haven’t given up yet.”The airline was operating only one passenger jet under contract for tour operator Air Transat when the decision to suspend operations was made. However, the company is maintaining a total of four Boeing 737 passenger jets through leases that expire in May 2016.The airline, a division of IMP Group Ltd. of Halifax, has been focused on charter flights since ending its scheduled airline service in 2006.Starting late last year, CanJet had offered its own vacation packages to the Caribbean through CanJet Vacations, and it was offering charter services in Europe last year, but Rowe said those businesses weren’t successful.The airline could return to offering scheduled flights, but Rowe said competing with Air Canada and WestJet would be a risky venture.“We’ve been there and done that a couple times,” he said. “It’s a tough business.”When the airline stopped its scheduled service in 2006 it blamed tough competition from Air Canada and WestJet.The Canadian Union of Public Employees issued a statement saying the sudden shutdown was devastating news.“(We) found out only this morning that CanJet has ceased flying operations immediately,” said union spokeswoman Lesley Swann. “Our focus is on assisting our members any way we can during this difficult time.”Swann said the union was seeking information about severance pay while examining “legal avenues.”Dan Adamus, president of the Canadian wing of the Air Line Pilots Association, said CanJet had as many as 130 pilots in recent years.“It’s sad because it’s a great operation,” Adamus said in an interview. “The majority (of workers) are from the East Coast and are very loyal to the airline.”Adamus said the airline has had to shut down operations before as it struggled to attain profitability.“They’ve been able to pull rabbits out of hats in the past,” he said.In April 2014, Air Transat cut costs by not to renewing a contract it had with CanJet since 2009. Under that five-year deal, Air Transat used CanJet aircraft to serve more than 20 Canadian cities and about 20 vacation spots.Earlier this year, CanJet laid off almost half of its 100 pilots and dozens of permanent and seasonal flight attendants. by Michael MacDonald, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 1, 2015 12:54 pm MDT Last Updated Sep 1, 2015 at 9:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

In Lao PDR UN food relief agency chief reiterates support for efforts

“During my visit, I’ve spoken to ministers, to provincial and district authorities, and to teachers and students. What I heard at every level was a commitment to support these goals,” Ms. Cousin said in a news release from the Laotian capital, Vientiane, at the end of her three-day mission. She said that WFP is working with communities in rural areas to make sure school meal programmes support education outcomes. “Achieving middle-income status is about the development of human capital, and that begins with food and nutrition security, and with education.” WFP is preparing to launch a new five-year program in Lao PDR next year, contributing towards Sustainable Development Goal 2 on achieving food and nutrition security globally by 2030. This initiative will further support the Eight National Social Economic Development Plan, bringing the country to middle-income status by 2020. An independent review was carried out this year, to identify which areas of the new programme should be prioritized to achieve Goal 2. On her trip, Ms. Cousin also visited schools in Luang Prabang province where WFP is working with partners to provide a package of assistance to students. The agency is working closely with the Government at all levels to take over and improve school lunch programs by 2021. Improved meal plans, in addition to schools gardens, literacy programs, and hygiene and sanitation initiatives can combine into a good sustainable model for development, according to WFP> read more

John McEnroe compares Novak Djokovic with golfer Tiger Woods as he suggests

first_imgMcEnroe added: “I think there’s a big difference, one is the age, but two the health. I think this (Djokovic’s form) isn’t a physical thing, this is more a mental thing.”The commentator also sparked controversy recently when he said that 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams would be ranked around 700 if she competed in the men’s game. BBC commentator John McEnroe surprised Wimbledon viewers when he compared Novak Djokovic with troubled golfer Tiger Woods.Speaking about Djokovic’s period of poor form, McEnroe compared the former Wimbledon champion with Woods, who in the past has had a high-profile divorce, been arrested, and suffered problems with prescription medication.McEnroe claimed Djokovic “had some off-court issues with the family,” adding: “That’s going to throw you.””If you’re distracted you’re not the same player,” he said. McEnroe, 58, said: “The person that comes to mind immediately with Novak is not a tennis player, it’s actually a golfer: Tiger Woods.”When he [Woods] had the issues with his wife and then he seemed to go completely off the rails and has never been even close to being the same player. In 2009, Woods crashed his SUV into a tree and a fire hydrant outside his Florida home. Just months later he was divorced after reports of extra-martial affairs surfaced. “So we’re starting to say: ‘Wait a minute, is this possible with him [Djokovic]?'”Former world number one Djokovic has suffered with his form in the last year – after completing a career Grand Slam last year, he started to lose matches and momentum.He is married to Jelena, 31. They have a son together and she is expecting their second child.  Jelena Djokoviccenter_img Djokovic is married to Jelena, pictured in 2015Credit: Mike Egerton/PA McEnroe is on the BBC commentary teamCredit:Karwai Tang/WireImage McEnroe is on the BBC commentary team Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Prince Philip crash Police frustrated that speed cameras were not installed on

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Speed cameras should have been installed three years ago on the road where the Duke of Edinburgh crashed in Norfolk, but disgruntled police say that councillors delayed the scheme.Back in 2016, local police and Norfolk County Council agreed to fund and erect speed cameras along the A149 between Castle Rising and Snettisham – the stretch of road where Prince Philip’s Land Rover collided with a 28-year-old mother’s Kia.But according to the Eastern Daily Press, local county councillors requested further consultation with their communities and the chance to explore alternatives, so a decision was made to suspend the scheme.The paper reported that Stuart Dark, a former Met Police officer, Andrew Jamieson and Michael Chenery had sought reassurances that the cameras would not be a “cash cow” and that there should be a better process for involving councillors.This move irked Norfolk Constabulary, who said in a statement: “We have continuously been in support of road safety improvements on the A149 between Castle Rising and Snettisham. Cllr Martin Wilby, Chairman of Norfolk County Council’s Environment, Development and Transport Committee, said: “We have been looking closely into the safety of the A149 for some time.”A detailed report was submitted to Environment, Development and Transport Committee by Norfolk County Council officers last week along with a recommendation to approve, at today’s meeting, the implementation of a 50mph speed limit and to install road safety cameras.“Based on the report and our dedication to the safety of the people in Norfolk, the committee has agreed to reduce the speed limit of the A149 to 50mph on two sections of the road and approved the Norfolk Camera Safety Partnership scheme to install road safety cameras along the road.”A spokesperson for Norfolk constabulary said: “While it is regrettable there has been a delay, we fully welcome today’s decision by the environment, development and transport committee to approve the scheme.” “In 2016, the decision to fund and proceed with the scheme was agreed by the Safety Camera Partnership Board, which is a multi-agency partnership of the police, Norfolk County Council and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.“As with all such schemes there is an appropriate process to follow which can be lengthy, however at every stage we have expressed a strong desire to proceed with the implementation of average speed cameras in a bid to improve road safety.“Following concerns raised by councillors, a decision was made by the county council to suspend the scheme.“This decision was not agreed to by the police and was against the expressed wishes of the chief constable, clearly outlined in a letter to the county council in September 2018.”Only on Friday, after Prince Philip’s crash, did the new cameras – and a reduction in the speed limit along the road, from 60mph to 50mph – get rubber stamped by the council.Police are investigating the car crash in which the Duke of Edinburgh was left bleeding and two women were hospitalised, but there is no suggestion that either car was travelling over the speed limitThe Duke’s car was seen to “tumble” across a road near the Sandringham Estate following the collision, with an eyewitness reporting that he was helped from his car before immediately asking whether others were “alright”. read more

Greek Australians leaders in child protection

first_imgFamily is a big part of what it is to be Greek Australian, and in National Child Protection Week, three Greek Australians are leading the field.Argiri Alisandratos is the assistant director of placement and support services at the Victorian Department of Human Services (DHS), and he says his Greek heritage prepared him for a career in child protection.“My family and our culture and my upbringing in a traditional Greek environment has been an enormous benefit to how I connect with families, and ensure families are a source of support when they can be,” he said.Alisandratos has worked as a practitioner for nearly 20 years, and is now responsible for designing the programs and policies that deal with moving young people away from their families when it’s neccesary. He said maintaining the child’s culture is very important.He said National Child Protection Week was important for highlighting the positive child protection stories. Angela Papoutsoglou is a principal practitioner for the Department of Human Services, in Melbourne’s north-west. She said the successes come from keeping families together. “Our paramount concern is the concern of the child, but also working in creative ways in partnership with the family to keep them together,” she said. She said when children do need to be moved, the first preference is within the extended family network.“You see it in the Greek community,” she said. “I’ve worked with a number of Greek families where, overall, the sense is, ‘we are a family,’ and when there’s an issue and we become involved, it’s amazing where extended family come from to help.”Mary Kyrios is the DHS’s principal policy analyst, working to achieve better outcomes for children in the Children’s Court.“We’re looking at a new model of alternative dispute resolution in the Children’s Court that ensures that children are the main focus,” she said. She said her Greek Australian heritage has made her open to the way different families function. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Greek foreign minister congratulates Greek Australians

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias congratulated the Greek diaspora of Australia for their initiative entitled ‘Speak Greek in March’. The minister says he is confident that the campaign will be embraced by Greek Australians across the globe.“I would like to congratulate you for your collective, multifaceted action to further strengthen and support the Greek language in Australia, especially on the occasion of the national celebrations of March, a month during which we celebrate our national independence.I am sure that the initiative ‘Speak Greek in March’, launched by you who actively and dynamically represent Hellenism in the multicultural country of Australia, will have great success,” the Greek minister said in his message.Furthermore, he added that it will also serve as an example for Greeks in other continents who wish to increase Greek language use, especially in younger generations. This will help spread the language in local communities and celebrate the significance of Greek culture and Greek education over time.“You make us very proud with this initiative.

Clark County commissioners study zoning in rural areas

first_imgA Wednesday discussion on allowing smaller minimum lot sizes in certain agricultural and forest zones included a lesson on property taxes for Clark County Commissioners Tom Mielke and David Madore, both of whom questioned why property taxes would increase even if property owners didn’t decide to split up their land.As part of a larger review of rural land rules, the county contacted owners of land zoned Agriculture-20, which refers to 20-acre minimum lots zoned for agricultural use, and owners in Forest-40, which refers to 40-acre minimum lots zoned for forestry use.County planner Jose Alvarez said there are grandfathered or nonconforming smaller lots in those zones. The county surveyed people who own at least 10 acres in the agriculture zone and at least 20 acres in the forest zone.Owners were asked whether they want to keep the status quo, or allow 10-acre minimum lots in the Agriculture-20 zone and 20-acre minimum lots in Forest-40 zones.The county heard from 618 of 1,079 property owners from the two zones. An overwhelming number (72 percent in the agricultural zone, and 82 percent in the forest zone) wanted smaller minimum parcel sizes. A majority of respondents also said they would like to “cluster” new homes on their property.last_img read more

as much as 33 percent and Samsung slid 14 percent Shares in Apple were down 13 percent during early trading at 5:21 am in New York Controlling MicroLED technology would help Apple stand out in a maturing smartphone market and outgun rivals like Samsung that have been able to tout superior screens Ray Soneira who runs screen tester DisplayMate Technologies says bringing the design in-house is a "golden opportunity" for Apple "Everyone can buy an OLED or LCD screen" he says "But Apple could own MicroLED" None of this will be easy Mass producing the new screens will require new manufacturing equipment By the time the technology is ready something else might have supplanted it Apple could run into insurmountable hurdles and abandon the project or push it back Its also an expensive endeavor Ultimately Apple will likely outsource production of its new screen technology to minimize the risk of hurting its bottom line with manufacturing snafus The California facility is too small for mass-production but the company wants to keep the proprietary technology away from its partners as long as possible one of the people says "We put a lot of money into the facility" this person says "Its big enough to get through the engineering builds [and] lets us keep everything in-house during the development stages" An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment Right now smartphones and other gadgets essentially use off-the-shelf display technology The Apple Watch screen is made by LG Display Ditto for Googles larger Pixel phone The iPhone X Apples first OLED phone uses Samsung technology Phone manufacturers tweak screens to their specifications and Apple has for years calibrated iPhone screens for color accuracy But this marks the first time Apple is designing screens end-to-end itself The secret initiative code-named T159 is overseen by executive Lynn Youngs an Apple veteran who helped develop touch screens for the original iPhone and iPad and now oversees iPhone and Apple Watch screen technology The 62000-square-foot manufacturing facility the first of its kind for Apple is located on an otherwise unremarkable street in Santa Clara California a 15-minute drive from the Apple Park campus in Cupertino and near a few other unmarked Apple offices There about 300 engineers are designing and producing MicroLED screens for use in future products The facility also has a special area for the intricate process of "growing" LEDs Another facility nearby houses technology that handles so-called LED transfers: the process of placing individual pixels into a MicroLED screen Apple inherited the intellectual property for that process when it purchased startup LuxVue in 2014 About a year after that acquisition Apple opened a display research lab (described internally as a "Technology Center") in Taiwan In a test to see if the company could pull off in-house display manufacturing engineers in Taiwan first built a small number of LCD screens using Apple technology They were assembled at the Santa Clara factory and retrofitted into iPhone 7 prototypes Apple executives tested them then gave the display team the go-ahead to move forward with the development of Apple-designed MicroLED screens The complexity of building a screen manufacturing facility meant it took Apple several months to get the California plant operational Only in recent months have Apple engineers grown confident in their ability to eventually replace screens from Samsung and other suppliers In late 2017 for the first time engineers managed to manufacture fully functional MicroLED screens for future Apple Watches; the company aims to make the new technology available first in its wearable computers While still at least a couple of years away from reaching consumers — assuming the company decides to proceed — producing a functional MicroLED Apple Watch prototype is a significant milestone for a company that in the past designed hardware to be produced by others The latest MicroLED Apple Watch prototypes arent fully functioning wearables; instead the screen portion is connected to an external computer board The screens are notably brighter than the current OLED Watch displays and engineers have a finer level of control over individual colors according to a person who has seen them Executives recently approved continued development for the next two years with the aim of shipping MicroLED screens in products Its unlikely that the technology will reach an iPhone for at least three to five years the people say While the smartphone is Apples cash cow there is precedent for new screen technologies showing up in the Apple Watch first When it was introduced in 2014 the Apple Watch had an OLED screen The technology finally migrated to the iPhone X last year Creating MicroLED screens is extraordinarily complex Depending on screen size they can contain millions of individual pixels Each has three sub-pixels: red green and blue LEDs Each of these tiny LEDs must be individually created and calibrated Each piece comes from what is known as a "donor wafer" and then are mass-transferred to the MicroLED screen Early in the process Apple bought these wafers from third-party manufacturers like Epistar Corp and Osram Licht AG but has since begun "growing" its own LEDs to make in-house donor wafers The growing process is done inside a clean room at the Santa Clara facility Engineers at the facility are also assembling prototype MicroLED screens right down to attaching the screen to the glass The backplanes an underlying component that electronically powers the displays are developed at the Taiwan facility Apple is also designing its own thin-film transistors and screen drivers key components in display assemblies Currently the Santa Clara facility is capable of manufacturing a handful of fully operational Apple Watch-sized (under 2 inches diagonally) MicroLED screens at a time Until MicroLED is ready for the world to see Apple will

LG Contact us at [email protected] a glimpse of the television ads campaign speeches and newspaper headlines it might be hard to guess that climate change is on the ballot in the fast-approaching midterm elections But climate activists and policy experts across the political spectrum say that win or lose a ballot initiative in Washington state that would create a first-in-the-nation carbon tax has the potential to shake up the national debate about how to address climate change If approved the initiative would require companies to pay to emit climate-change causing carbon dioxide and would in turn provide the Pacific Northwest state with a revenue stream to fund a slew of government programs from clean energy projects to relocating communities threatened by rising sea levels Perhaps more significantly the measure would jumpstart a national debate about how to put a price on carbon thought by many to be central to efforts to stem global warming “This is new ground for everybody” says John Larsen a director at the Rhodium Group an energy research firm “If Washington gets this in place its going to provide a different picture of whats possible” The policy known as I-1631 would require companies to pay $15 for every metric ton of carbon dioxide they emit beginning in 2020 The fee would provide the state with around $1 billion in annual revenue and the price would increase gradually over time Supporters of the initiative say it would allow the state to reduce CO2 emissions by 25% by 2035 the state’s official target Washington would use 70% of the funds for clean air and energy investments 25% for water and forests and 5% for “healthy communities” Supporters list new solar and wind farms forest restoration and climate education programs among the potential direct beneficiaries of a new program Some of these programs are aspirational but others will need to be completed even if the initiative fails But so far Washington communities have struggled to get funding “Were very appreciative of the money we do get from Congress” says Leonard Forsman president of the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians an umbrella group that represents more than 30 tribes in Washington “But we have a lot of competition and we need more” To be sure passage remains far from certain Polling suggests that the race is a toss up and while prominent local companies like Microsoft and Expedia have announced their support for the measure several oil and gas industry players have spent tens of millions of dollars to defeat it A loss would require Washington state to rethink how it meets its climate change goals Voters in the state rejected a carbon tax in 2016 in part because progressive groups opposed it for being too conservative And today many opponents of the measure insist that they want to fight climate change but they argue that the measure is poorly constructed a common argument against popular but complex ballot initiatives that has proved successful in the past Regardless of the outcome the effort is likely to help shape the emerging national discussion surrounding pricing carbon A loss would underscore questions about the viability of a progressive carbon tax that funds clean energy jobs and climate adaptation programs and perhaps lead some activists to focus on a different structure (A more moderate approach to a carbon tax is “revenue neutral” meaning it cuts taxes elsewhere or gives the money back to taxpayers in some other form) On the other hand a win would give momentum to such measures particularly in other blue states while giving supporters of a more moderate approach incentive to act more urgently At the moment a federal carbon tax may seem like a distant mirage The topic rarely captures attention on the nation’s airwaves President Donald Trump has repeatedly denied the science of climate change including earlier this month in response to a landmark UN report on the topic And most Democrats have not prioritized the issue Read More: President Trump Won’t Say If He Still Thinks Climate Change Is a Hoax Here’s Why But a slew of small developments beyond the vote in Washington state hint at the emerging debate A group of Republican elder statesmen and prominent economists started an initiative called the Climate Leadership Council and floated what they call a carbon fee and dividend that would charge polluters and give the money back to Americans as a middle-class tax cut Congressman Carlos Curbelo a Republican from South Florida facing a tough re-election campaign introduced carbon tax legislation this year that would fund an infrastructure program Perhaps the biggest indicator of a potential change on hand comes from an unlikely place: the energy industry For decades fossil fuel companies have funded efforts to distort climate science and slow policy action Their tenor has changed in recent years as these companies increasingly recognize that measures to address climate change are inevitable in the long term The sector would rather shape the rules in a fashion that gives them a lane for survival rather than face stringent regulation the next time a Democrat takes office For many that means advocating a price on carbon now Several energy companies have supported the Climate Leadership Council This year ExxonMobil announced a $1 million lobbying push to promote a federal carbon tax The proposal the company supports includes a provision that would protect oil and gas companies from liability over the damages caused by climate change the subject of mounting lawsuits including one filed Oct 24 by New York state And while several oil and gas companies have funded an opposition campaign to the Washington state initiative others have declined to take sides publicly Many in the industry say that a carbon tax would provide the certainty needed for business to make big investments “We need to be focused on what is the message that we can provide with a much larger voice by 2020 and try to make those changes” said Chris Crane the CEO of Exelon a leading power company that supports a carbon tax at an event in Washington DC, Herrmann won an Emmy for

of foodgrainsespecially that of rice and wheattwo crops that account for almost half the value of all the crops for which the government sets the MSP When the government raises the MSPthe prices of factors of production involved in the production of MSP products land and labour also go up Is it any surprise that rural wages have gone up so fast as to cause labour shortages in an economy with relatively jobless growth for the last nine years For the last six yearsrural wages have gone up by an average of 16 per cent We dont have reliable data on rural land valuesbut anecdotal data suggest that the price of this factor of production has also been rising faster than most prices in the economy So does this not increase the chances of the Congress getting elected in the rural areas This is mostly why the Congress-led UPA did it increase rural incomeswhere the votes are Howevergiven the state election results of the last few yearsthis strategy seems to have backfired One important reason: a dominantly large share of the expenditure of the poor is on foodand food prices have risen much faster than the average CPI increase of 10 per centresulting in a real wage increase of less than 3 per cent per year at best The UPA answer to high procurement prices in the run-up to the 2009 election was that these prices were being increased because international prices of food were going up Asindeedthey were world food prices (FAO data) increased at an average compounded rate of 67 per cent per annum between 2004 and 2009; UPA procurement prices increased at an average rate of 99 per cent Since 2009in the last four yearsinternational prices of food have risen 73 per cent; UPA 2 price increase per year 93 per cent The link between procurement prices and CPI is very strong theoretically and empirically The table reports the results of a model that relates CPI increase to only one variablethe one-year lagged growth in procurement prices The model is very parsimonious; no fuel prices hereno rupee valueno fiscal deficitno money supplyno repo rateno RBIno purchase of gold and no current account deficit Yet this model explains Indian inflation very well For each 10 per cent rise in previous years procurement pricesthere is a predicted 33 per cent increase in the current year CPI In other wordsif there was a zero rise in procurement prices last yearon an averagethis years CPI inflation would be 46 per cent The estimation is for the period 1978-2007so all of UPA 2 data are out of sample Particularly galling and adventurous and destructive was the UPA-administered procurement price increase of 115 per cent in 2011 and 162 per cent increase in 2012 In 2012the price of rice was increased by 16 per centcoarse cereals by 20 per centsugar by 17 per cent and wheat by 5 per cent The model predicted a 10 per cent increase in CPI in 2013 the actual result 10 percent The average forecasting error for the out of sample six years only 1 per cent per year Six-year CPI inflation in 2008-13 has been the highest since 1950; 10 per cent per annum matching the 101 per cent rate achieved in the six years ending in 1975 For the six years ending in 2012the MSP increase has also been the highest: average of 125 per cent per annum A lag of one year as per the model The UPA will say coincidenceI will say rank stupid populist policy which did not help rural India (except

like opening of bank accounts This is not the first time the Supreme Court has made such an observation The apex court on 15 October 2015 had lifted its earlier restrictions and permitted voluntary use of Aadhar cards in welfare schemes that also included MGNREGA all pension schemes and provident fund besides ambitious flagship programmes like ‘Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna’ of the NDA government PTI reported The Supreme Court in its 2013 order had directed that ‘no person should suffer for not getting the Aadhaar card’ inspite of the fact that some authority had issued a circular making it mandatory While the Supreme Court is clear that enrolling for Aadhaar is not mandatory through Section 7 of the Aadhaar Act passed by Parliament this March the government of India has effectively made Aadhaar enrollment mandatory for receiving any subsidy benefit or service for which expenditure is borne out of the Consolidated Fund of India the ET reported Reuters The latest directive by the court comes at a time when the government is issuing notification after notification in a hurry to make the Aadhaar an integral part of the economic and social system of the country And experts from the left to the right end of political spectrum have raised serious concerns about the move Undermining SC "By making Aadhaar compulsory the government is undermining the SC authority It is unfortunate that the SC has not come down heavily on the government" said Alok Prasanna Kumar an advocate based in Bengaluru "It is not possible to change a SC order by legislation" The reason why the constitution bench heard the Aadhaar case was because it was a constitutional matter considering the scope and extent of privacy guaranteed under the constitution he remarked With its latest observation on Aadhaar the Supreme Court has gone against the Aadhaar Act said Jehangir Gai consumer activist "The Act is for availing government subsidy only" he said For the government to insist that you need to give personal data to avail of subsidy is a intrusion he said adding that the government is ‘supposed’ to work in accordance with the legal framework but is instead flouting it The NDA government enacted the Aaadhar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies Benefits and Services) Act 2016 in March 2016 in a bid to provide legal sanctity for the system even as the case was being heard in the apex court The government has been proved to be wrong again and again on this issue points out Gopal Krishna of the Citizens Forum for Civil Liberties (CFCL) Earlier in the National Scholarship case and then in the Lokniti Foundation vs Union of India case “The central government had told the Supreme court that it was following the SC’s September 2013 order regarding Aadhaar cards making it not mandatory and yet it is going on about doing just that” he said He feels the government’s attempt is to replace the constitutional guarantees with Aadhaar "There is no need to replace what is granted under the constitution with what the government now purports to give under its Aadhaar scheme” he said What has many worried is the fact that the Supreme Court has not taken action against the government for committing contempt of court by making Aadhaar mandatory for essential services "The court was perfectly clear in its order that Aadhaar cannot be mandatory" said Chinmayi Arun Assistant Professor of Law at National Law University Delhi and Faculty Associate of the Berkman Klein Centre at Harvard University Filing IT returns is mandatory and linking Aadhaar to it makes Aadhaar mandatory Arun pointed out She suggests that the Supreme Court should order the government to desist from linking Aadhaar to all services "If our democratic institutions fail us completely people should protest In the United States there are protests everywhere as there should be in a healthy democracy where the executive ignores the constitution completely” Safety issues For anyone to get an Aadhaar number the details that needs to be submitted include (i) biometric (photograph finger print iris scan) and (ii) demographic (name date of birth address) information There is a wealth of information that is gathered by the government through a thumb print and a scary-looking photograph (with most people remotely resembling their photographs on the Aadhaar card) along with biometric information and one’s bank account too linked to it which can be mined by a cyber criminal Experts say there are no mechanisms in place to secure the biometrics and other information that the individual hands over to the government Shailesh Gandhi former Information Commissioner with the Central Information Commission spoke of not being ‘recognised’ by the system at two private banks where he tried to verify his Aadhaar number "When I asked about the failure of the system to recognise me I was told that only one out of every 15-20 persons are recognised by the system If biometrics do not recognise the individual who has the card it is a very serious problem If you cannot verify an Aadhaar card then you are back to corruption" he said However Gandhi doesn’t agree with concerns about privacy Anita Gurumurthy founding member and executive director ofIT for Change raises a bigger concern of connectivity issues in rural areas "You cannot blame anyone as power outages cannot be made an excuse to not give an individual his/her right share from the PDS system" she said Before undertaking the exercise that links every service to Aadhaar and coercing people to take it or find themselves out of any scheme the government should have taken measures to ‘strengthen’ the ecosystem said Pavan Duggal advocate with the Supreme Court and an authority on cyber security law “I am concerned about the cyber security ramifications with data being stored in a centralized source We do not have a dedicated law on privacy and data protection” said Duggal The information about citizens at the command of the government is a volcano that can burst when used by unscrupulous elements if they get their hand on to the data he said When the Aaadhar was introduced it was done through an act of the executive says Pavan Duggal From 2009 to 2016 no legislation was passed by Parliament that gave legality to Aadhaar It is the lack of data protection laws in the country that worries most citizens They fear misuse of their details that were given for a certain purpose — to avail of bank accounts for IT purposes et al How does one ensure that consent is not abused is the oft-asked question "We have no mechanism in the country currently to take issue of conflict to an authority This poses a deep threat We consent to pay IT for instance and have our files in the public domain but that information cannot be used by companies to sell cars to us or any other product or service" said Gurumurthy No data protection law There is not much clarity with regard to UIDAI and cyber rules and hence the privacy concerns with making it mandatory by the government "Aadhaar deals with biometric information Under the law this is sensitive personal data” contends Duggal The government can go out and assuage people’s fears in this sensitive issue It should assure citizens that the information gathered will not be used against the individual except for instance if the sovereignty of the nation is threatened suggested Duggal Until such exceptions are spelt out there will always be the fear of information being misused or targeted against individuals groups or people by the government itself or any unscrupulous element who are able to lay their hands on it What the government is doing by making Aadhaar mandatory is denying the rights of citizens points out Gopal Krishna of CFCL The Aadhaar is proof of an individual’s residency in India and not of Indian citizenship "I don’t think Arun Jaitley and the government have examined the implementations of the Supreme Court’s directive It is surprising as Jaitley is a lawyer of repute" says he Written by Neha Nigam | New Delhi | Published: April 5 2017 8:51 pm Yeh Hai Mohabbatein 5th April 2017 full episode written

7 when none of the promises were fulfilled, people realised that the propaganda was false and it reflected in the bypoll results where the “love jihad” propaganda also didn’t work Also people could see for themselves that there were no cases of what was being called “love jihad” in their villages More than 25 per cent of the otherwise secular electorate especially Hindu was polarised in the Lok Sabha polls due to the concerted efforts of the RSS and BJP while Muslims were divided But in the UP bypolls Muslims were cautious and one-sided except for Saharanpur Also the previously polarised electorate including Yadavs SCs and OBCs saw through the BJP and returned to vote for the Samajwadi Party like in 2012 Take the Hamirpur assembly seat for example It has about 40000 Muslims As almost 60 per cent voting took place in Hamirpur it can be said about 25000 Muslims voted in the bypolls The BJP fielded Jagdish Prasad Vyas an RSS man while the Congress fielded Keshav Babu; the BJP got only 44439 votes while the Congress garnered 42200 votes But it was the SP’s Shiv Charan Prajapati who registered a win by securing 112995 votes The point here is that the Muslim electorate couldn’t have made a difference Yet even the Congress and BJP put together couldn’t match up to the SP So where was the polarisation Certainly the BJP’s polarisation methods did not work according to its expectations Also the issue of love jihad is unlikely to work again at least in Uttar Pradesh Once a slogan is used it is difficult to revive it A similar case in point is the Ram Janmabhoomi movement which does not now raise communal passions as much as it did two decades ago Before the Lok Sabha polls the BJP made noises to perhaps gauge how much impact the Ram temple issue would create But subsequently the BJP didn’t play it up much which may indicate that the issue is waning A clear pattern suggests that we should be on the lookout for what new slogans the RSS comes up with when we next approach polls We don’t know to what extent the BJP will be able to deliver on its promises But there are certain shortcuts such as communal riots that can always create a favourable atmosphere for the BJP What Muslims need to do is to clear the misconceptions spread by the BJP We need to educate non-Muslims especially Hindus and those in rural areas (where this propaganda had its chunk of impact) about jihad nikah and conversion that Islam doesn’t permit forcible conversion or conversion to Islam for the sake of marriage that it isn’t nikah at all when it is between two non-Muslims that any Muslim person is free to change his or her religion and marry a non-Muslim and that Islam doesn’t say that they should be forcibly stopped The difficulty is that Muslims do not want to reach out to Hindus in general About a decade ago there was a misconception among many Hindus that various instances of looting or bombing of trains among other events are permissible in Islam Then the ulemas held conferences and clarified that Islam doesn’t allow the killing of innocents of any religion that this isn’t jihad at all and that Muslims in general don’t practise it We need to once again

of content for the youth They started with creating spoofs mash-ups sketches on politics and cinema providing an alternative to mainstream entertainment They produced pathbreaking web series such as

“completely ludicrous and defamatory” adding “We will leave no stone unturned to find the author of the article and bring them to severe justice for making such false allegations” This approach got

dealing with it will necessitate shedding the heavy-footedness and diffidence that has held back Delhi’s China policy so far The UPA’s China policy ended up denying the Indian economy the full

in Italy’s top flight until the age of 55 after winning promotion with Empoli in 2014 Known as “Mr 33” because he reputedly thought up 33 different plans for set pieces at Empoli Sarri quickly innovated at Napoli by using a drone to film training sessions from above In just over two seasons he has swept away the inconsistency which marked predecessor Rafael Benitez’s spell at the club and brought out the best in players such as midfielders Marek Hamsik and Jorginho who had struggled for form under the Spaniard Argentina forward Gonzalo Higuain was another who flourished under Sarri scoring a Serie A record of 36 goals in the 2015-16 season before being lured to Juventus “Sarri has been like a father“ Higuain said at the time “He emphasises my weak points; he immediately told me

NewsWritten by T R Andhyarujina | Published: October 9 2014 12:57 am In the UK the problem of judicial salaries becoming unremunerative with the cost of living is taken care of by a revision by the Senior Salaries Review Body which recommends increase in judicial salaries from time to time Related News For judicial office to attract the best talent raise judges’ salaries and their age of retirement The National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) Act 2014 seeks to improve the quality of judges of the Supreme Court and the high courts by changing the present system of appointment for judges Along with this major change it is imperative to make two other vital changes in the service conditions of judges of the higher judiciary to make the offices of judge of the SC and high courts attractive enough to secure the best talent from among lawyers and judges The two most important changes required are: First to raise the salaries and emoluments of judges of the higher courts; and second to raise the age of retirement of judges of the SC and high courts Unless these measures are undertaken simultaneously by the government even with the enactment of the NJAC law the judicial office will not attract the best talent as it does in other countries Historically judicial salaries in India have been niggardly For 36 years after the Constitution came into operation in 1950 judicial salaries remained unrevised Salaries were first increased in 1986 In 1998 they were further raised At present the chief justice of India is paid Rs100000 per month and other SC judges are paid Rs 90000 per month The chief justice of a high court is paid Rs 90000 per month and other high court judges are paid Rs 80000 per month Source; CR Sasikumar Even taking into consideration the perquisites attached to the office of judge judicial salaries have become unrewarding and unattractive to lawyers in good practice In the past in India as in the UK lawyers in good practice took judgeships as a career and as a matter of honour even though the rewards at the Bar were higher Today judicial salaries do not stand comparison with the earnings of lawyers in good practice resulting in fewer competent lawyers taking up judgeships It is ironic that fledgling law graduates today are offered higher salaries by law firms than the salaries paid to judges The late eminent jurist HM Seervai had trenchantly observed: “It may be said that we are a poor country and cannot afford to pay high salaries to judges I would like to record my opinion that only an extremely wealthy country can afford the luxury of an ill-paid judiciary and that the greatest sufferers of an ill-paid judiciary would be the Union and state governments because today the biggest litigant in India is the state The correct remedy is to make a judicial career sufficiently attractive for lawyers of the highest standing” Winston Churchill had said that the payments made to other civil servants cannot be equated with the salaries of judges He said: “The service rendered by judges demands the highest qualities of learning training and character These qualities are not to be measured in terms of pounds shillings and pence according to the quantity of work done A form of life and conduct far more severe and restricted than that of ordinary people is required from judges and though unwritten has been most strictly observed They are at once privileged and restricted They have to present a continuous aspect of dignity and conduct The bench must be the dominant attraction to the legal profession yet it rather hangs in the balance now and heavily will our society pay if it cannot command the finest characters and the best legal brains which we can produce” In the UK the problem of judicial salaries becoming unremunerative with the cost of living is taken care of by a revision by the Senior Salaries Review Body which recommends increases in judicial salaries from time to time We are in serious danger of undermining the standing of our higher judiciary if judicial salaries are not raised In 2007 Chief Justice John Roberts of the US Supreme Court described the then levels of judicial salaries in the US as a “constitutional crisis” with much less justification Another deterring factor in accepting a judgeship in India is the retirement age of 62 years for a high court judge and 65 years for an SC judge At these retirement ages judges are in full possession of their faculties but are constitutionally prevented from active legal practice In the case of a high court judge on his retirement he can only shift to the SC to practice as a lawyer which few retired high court judges can do High court and SC judges on retirement look out for positions given to them by government or seek to be an arbitrator or to give opinions Presently on average an SC judge is appointed for a tenure of four to six years before he retires at 65 In such a short tenure even the ablest judge does not have the time to master the law and acquire the knowledge required of an SC judge In leading supreme courts abroad the retirement age is above 65 Thus the retirement age for judges of the High Court of Australia (Australia’s apex court) is 70 of the Supreme Court of Canada is 75 of the Supreme Court of Ireland is 70 of the Supreme Court of Israel is 70 of the Supreme Court of New Zealand is 68 of the Constitutional Court of South Africa is 70 or after 12 years of service of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom is 75 Uniquely there is no retirement age for judges of the Supreme Court of the United States although judges on their own retire at an age of their choice It is only in India and Pakistan that Supreme Court judges have to retire at the age of 65 years The retirement age of a high court judge must therefore be revised to at least 65 years and an SC judge to 70 A constitutional amendment bill was sought to raise the retirement age of a high court judge to 65 in 2011 but it was not pursued due to objections from the opposition It is therefore imperative that these two vital changes are made along with the implementation of the NJAC Act 2014 to secure the best
