Alella is a municipality located between the Mediterranean Sea and the coastal mountain range: in a relatively short distance, the orography of the territory rises from the sea level to 400 meters high. Due to this situation, sloping areas were historically organized on terraces stabilized with stonewalls, to be cultivated. The territory outside the urban nucleus was structured by means of large farms, where large houses with different architectural, landscape, social and heritage interests were built in each one of them; those who gave name to each one of the zones that occupied. Subsequently, during the 20th century, the demographic pressure and the change in the economy led to the appearance of several urbanizations that meant the fragmentation of the territory.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!AxonometrySave this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe housing lot is located in an enclave between a fragmented and consolidated area with recently built buildings and another area occupied by a historical estate of the ones described above. So that it transitions between a landscape before the 20th century and another one of the present century. In its initial state, the lot presents a composition more typical of the historical landscape than fragmented. Being stabilized horizontally by means of three longitudinal containment walls – north / south direction – of three meters of height each, that structure the terrain on three terraces. It also contains an old dry stone chapel and a series of vegetation and consolidated own trees, with an interest in being conserved.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaMaintaining the original character of the place becomes the main project premise. To preserve the soul and the morphology, to preserve each one of those things that make it unique and characteristic: the terraces, the retaining walls, the different elements of pre-existing vegetation and the dry stone chapel. These elements are delimited and identified to be preserved in the plant and once they have been delimited, a respectful implementation of housing directly on the existing land is established, so that the house coexists and interacts spatially and functionally with these elements. The resulting ensemble seeks to be a whole, timeless and heterogeneous, that is part of the place and the landscape. Likewise, it is proposed to naturalize the unbuilt spaces and rehabilitate and re-landscape landscaping.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe housing program consists of a living room, dining room, kitchen, rooms, studios, bathrooms, cinema, wellness area, parking for vehicles and spaces for storage, services and facilities; with a constructed surface resulting from 869m2, and therefore, a size more typical of the old stately houses existing in the municipality of Alella than of the houses built in the last half century. Due to the dimensions of the program, a strategy of implementation and hybrid landscape integration is included which includes two concepts: harmonization and monumentalization. The harmonization in terms of using the same stone in the area with which the chapel is made to finish pre-existing retaining walls, plant new Mediterranean vegetation in line with the existing one and place wood and stone together with elements of water. And the monumentalization to create a monolithic structure of reinforced concrete, punctually supported by steel pillars and lime mortar lined with the will to be a Mediterranean sculpture that emerges from a natural field that maintains its historical roots.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaWhen analyzing the program and the size of the housing required, the volumetry is implemented through two floors in each preexisting terrace, concentrating the larger volumetrics on the two lower terraces, so that the terrace most visually exposed has the smaller volumetry. The house is structured in four differentiated levels: 181, 184, 187 and 190. The floor level 181 contains parking, wellness space, and storage areas; the floor level 184 contains the day zone; the floor level 187 contains the night area and the floor level 190 contains a study that connects with a green terrace. Each one of the rooms focuses on the different visuals that the landscape offers: the sea, the valley, the olive fields and the small neighbouring pond. As for the pre-existing stonewalls, once rehabilitated and covered with dry stone from the area, they go through the house coinciding with the most relevant spaces. The covers are landscaped with varying degrees of inclination, with the intention of visually collecting the landscape, pretending to be part of it and also pretending that from a bird sight the presence of the house is not perceived, but rather a completely naturalized terrain.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe housing structure itself provides solutions of passive solar architecture, through porches of different dimensions and pergolas of wooden beams on the southern facade. Rainwater from landscaped covers is collected in buried deposits and reused for irrigation of the unbuilt garden area. In addition, the house integrates a system of air conditioning through aerothermal technology and double-flow ventilation, which, together with the natural thermal insulation of the covers, the home automation installation, the construction system itself and the exhaustive study of the composition of the different skins of the building; they have made this house to have obtained an energy certification A.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe equipment of the house is resolved by incorporating integrated furniture that enhances the spaces in which it is part. Regarding the final materiality, it is proposed that this generates a cozy, friendly and connected home with the outside. Made with openings and pavement with stony texture that goes through the house from outside to inside and from inside to outside, and the use of neutral colours and warm wood for the rest of the materials.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow lessBoathouse / Buero WagnerSelected ProjectsHouse with 6 annexes / Kiyoaki Takeda ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Casa VN / Guillem Carrera Projects Photographs: Adrià Goula Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeGuillem CarreraOfficeFollowProductsGlassStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAlellaSpainPublished on February 13, 2019Cite: “Casa VN / Guillem Carrera” [Casa VN / Guillem Carrera] 13 Feb 2019.

The global COVID-19 viral pandemic has exposed in the sharpest light the contradiction between a globalized world economy and a still existing but archaic capitalist system based on the private expropriation of wealth and resources.The relentless drive to reap a profit from every type of human interaction now stands exposed as the greatest danger to the people of the whole planet.130 tons of protected gear donated by China, unloaded in Austria, bound for Italy.At the same time, China is sending enormous amounts of assistance to countries desperate for medical and personal protective equipment. These massive solidarity shipments demonstrate the superiority of China’s basic socialist planning.China is sending by air, rail and sea needed medical equipment to 89 countries around the world. This includes test kits, facemasks, protective clothing, goggles, forehead thermometers and ventilators.Chinese medical workers and planeloads of essential supplies have already been sent to 28 countries in Asia, 26 in Africa, 16 in Europe, 10 in the South Pacific and nine in the Americas. This assistance is China’s most intensive and wide-ranging emergency humanitarian operation since the founding of the People’s Republic in 1949. (China Daily, March 26)22 airlifts of medical supplies from ChinaBy contrast the United States, still the largest and richest economy in the world, is overwhelmed by a complete lack of planning and even the capacity to mobilize the population for their own survival. Reported COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now exceed those in China, even though China has almost four times the population and was the first country hit with this new disease. (worldometers.info/coronavirus, April 2)U.S. for-profit health corporations and government agencies at every level are now turning to China to order essential supplies. This follows two months of racist ridicule, political attacks and rejecting offers of assistance from both China and the World Health Organization.Totally frustrated with the inability of any arm of the U.S. government to solve these essential supply problems, governors, mayors, charitable organizations, nonprofit and sister-city groups, and major health complexes have each started making their own trade deals with Chinese corporations to get emergency shipments of supplies.The Federal Emergency Management Agency stepped in and ordered 22 airlifts of supplies from China — but set up their distribution through profit-taking private sector networks. On March 29, a commercial aircraft carrying 80 tons of medical supplies arrived in New York from China. It delivered 130,000 N95 masks, 1.8 million facemasks and gowns, 10 million gloves and thousands of thermometers for distribution in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Similar flights to Chicago and Cleveland were planned for the next two days. (New York Times, March 29)New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state, which is now the epicenter for the coronavirus, is in urgent need of 40,000 ventilators. Unfortunately, ventilators were unavailable. European corporations had already bought up the entire inventory of the largest Chinese ventilator producer.European Union also overwhelmedThe coronavirus has overwhelmed not only the United States, the center of international finance capital. Other highly developed imperialist countries, including Italy, Spain, Germany, France and Britain, are staggering under its impact.They were also unable to respond effectively. In order to revive their capitalist corporations and banks after the 2008 global capitalist crash, the European Union had imposed years of austerity and cutbacks in social programs on member countries. after the 2008 global capitalist crash. Now the EU is refusing to share assistance, even with its member countries. with its countries.None of these imperialist countries is offering anything to the rest of the world as this extreme medical crisis spreads to over 190 countries.Less than an hour of Pentagon spendingWith great fanfare, the U.S. government pledged $62 million from the Agency for International Development to address the pandemic. This is less than what the Pentagon spends in an hour. The enormous $746 billion Pentagon budget — much of which is a subsidy to oil and military corporations — consumes roughly $2 billion a day or $80 million an hour.While offering no real assistance to any country, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasted China and the countries that accept China’s aid, claiming: “The Chinese Communist Party poses a substantial threat to our health and way of life, as the Wuhan virus clearly has demonstrated.” (Los Angeles Times, March 29) The Trump administration has also used the hardships of this global crisis to tighten sanctions and increase threats on Iran and Venezuela.China’s ‘Health Silk Road’The coronavirus is arriving in many countries that have already suffered humanitarian crises caused by U.S. wars and sanctions, as well as natural disasters and climate change. So China is setting up what it calls a Health Silk Road. Skilled Chinese medical teams have begun arriving in a growing number of countries, including Iran, Iraq, Italy, Serbia, Venezuela, Pakistan and Cambodia.On March 11, as the COVID-19 virus abated in China, immediate assistance was also promised to countries in Africa. Equipment alone cannot overcome the health crises in countries lacking a national health care system. However, the 20,000 test kits, 100,000 masks, 1,000 protective suits to be delivered to each African country will have a big impact.On March 22, a Chinese medical team arrived in Serbia with its first shipment of 16 tons. The European Union had denied any assistance to Serbia, citing U.S.-imposed sanctions.On March 27, 130 tons of protective gear from China bound for Italy were unloaded in Vienna.The China-Europe Express, a train line opened more than a decade ago, links 48 Chinese cities with Europe. On March 28 the first freight train to leave China after two months of lockdown departed from Wuhan. Its 19 cars were loaded with locally manufactured medical supplies.Wuhan had been China’s hardest-hit city by the COVID-19 virus. Now it has a great deal of expertise and newly manufactured medical equipment to offer the world. Reuters reports that a shipment of a million masks and gloves from China arrived in France on March 22.China develops diagnostic and treatment plansChina’s National Health Commission has compiled an invaluable set of diagnostic and treatment plans. It is sharing them, as well as other technical documents, with 180 countries and more than 10 international and regional organizations.The commission has also conducted in-depth exchanges with the international community, holding about 30 video conferences on technical issues regarding the coronavirus with more than 100 countries and regions.One such video conference with the World Health Organization, held on March 12, shared China’s experiences with representatives from 77 countries and seven international organizations. It was viewed online by more than 100,000 people.Profit system creates disasterIn this global economy, why have offers of essential testing equipment and medical supplies from China, and even from the World Health Organization, been rejected by the Trump administration?It’s not only because of growing U.S. hostility to China’s stunning level of development. Nor is it driven only by right-wing ideologues.Medical care exists for profit. Free or inexpensive test kits and medical supplies threaten the capitalist drive to profit out of every human transaction. Pharmaceutical, medical and insurance companies are the most profitable corporations in the U.S. today. Along with oil and so-called defense corporations, they dominate finance capital.During the crucial two months when these vital supplies could have been quickly ordered or manufactured and stockpiled, there was not yet a strong enough profit incentive to produce them. Medical facilities in the U.S. operate on a lean ship-to-order basis.The unplanned and competitive nature of capitalist production distorts all social interaction. Wild speculation and bubbles of quick profit are the norm.As the crisis became obvious to millions, anything assumed to be in possible short supply was immediately hoarded for speculation. This has led to life-threatening shortages of hand sanitizers, facemasks, essential foods and even toilet paper.Who will pay and who will profit is the fundamental question in all capitalist relations. What is most needed — to fulfill people’s needs — is not part of the calculation.As early as January, the Trump administration’s own medical experts identified a probable shortage of ventilators as a critical problem. Yet “both the White House and the Federal Emergency Management Agency struggled to define what was needed, who would pay for it and how to solve the problem of supply chains.” (“Alliance with industry does Trump no good in quest for ventilators,” New York Times, March 20)Knowing that nothing was actually happening to solve any of these problems, Trump continued to make assurances: “We are going to have plenty.”Many media reports have confirmed that the lack of testing kits arose from the manufacturers’ insistence on exclusive contracts with guaranteed profits. Follow-through and distribution plans were also totally lacking. Even how to keep a count of test results was not worked out in advance.No planning for the population’s needs, along with chaotic planning for what is profitable, has created a crisis in every hospital in the U.S. Private and public hospitals, competing city, state and federal agencies, local and national charities are now in bidding wars for existing supplies.Socialist planning is the answerHow was China able to control the virus? How is it now able to begin providing massive assistance to other countries on a global scale?Clearly, socialist planning and large-scale collective ownership of major industries, including the medical industry, have been decisive.Even in small developing countries, socialist planning frees up the economy to meet domestic need and even make major contributions to other countries trapped by U.S. economic domination and archaic social relations.Look at Cuba. A country of only 11 million people, it sends more doctors to developing countries than does the World Health Organization. Cuba has also developed and freely shared with the world a medication that aids in treating those who test positive for COVID-19: Interferon Alfa-2B.Up to now the U.S. government has not only barred the use of medications from Cuba, it has actually threatened countries that accept them. But as the death toll mounts in the U.S., demands for treatments and medical equipment may force changes in seemingly set-in-stone policies.China has struggled to overcome past underdevelopment by balancing different forms of central planning, local collective ownership, capitalist incentives and shared ownership with Western corporations and banks. At the same time, the Communist Party has maintained broad political and economic control. It has guided national development plans and controlled what imperialist corporations can and cannot do in China.China is still a developing country emerging from 200 years of colonial looting and underdevelopment. But it has maintained steady development since its 1949 Communist revolution overturned archaic property relations and imperialist domination. That revolution 70 years ago has made all the difference in this global pandemic.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

To put it simply, the Northern Distributor Road will become a knowledge corridor linking LIT and UL, something that is almost unique in Ireland.“The first major new development on the new road will be the LIT Coonagh campus, with its focus on engineering research and teaching. The Northern Distributor Road will open a direct link between LIT Coonagh and LIT Moylish at one end, and UL and Plassey at the other.“This is a powerful development that will give Limerick a unique advantage. Nowhere else in Ireland has a single knowledge corridor that brings together two major higher education institutions in this way, along with the associated research and industrial estates.“As well as giving a new competitive advantage to Limerick I hope it will foster an even deeper sense of collaboration between the two institutions.“Along the course of the road, much of the north side of the city will be unlocked, bringing economic and social improvements.“At the same time, the location of the knowledge corridor within close proximity to Shannon is emphasised by the fact that it will be the first major artery on the approach to Limerick from the airport, further linking Limerick’s enterprise and educational infrastructure to the air access and industrial base of Shannon.“I welcome it as a major new piece of infrastructure for Limerick, and I encourage people to submit their views to Limerick City and County Council.”The public consultation period for the proposed new Northern Distributor Road is currently underway, with a deadline of March 27th for submissions.

Facebook WhatsApp Twitter WhatsApp By Michael Bauer – April 26, 2021 Pinterest Facebook Medical Center Hospital CEO Russell Tippin will be honored at this year’s Hispanic Heritage of Odessa Cinco de Mayo celebrations. (Courtesy Photo) After missing out last year’s Cinco de Mayo celebrations in public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Hispanic Heritage of Odessa will be putting on a celebration with its “La Batalla Sigue” that will take place at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 5, at La Margarita Festival Grounds.The day will end with a festival at the Odessa Marriott with an event hosted by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.According to Hispanic Heritage of Odessa Executive Director Carol Uranga, there will be plenty of safety protocols that will be followed.“We’re asking people to wear their masks and we’ll have hand sanitizers,” Uranga said. “We’re going to try and space them out. We’re going to do as much as we can.”The celebration at La Margarita Festival Grounds will have entertainment provided by the Viva Mexico Folklorico Dancers with catering by La Margarita restaurant.Uranga said proclamations will be announced by Judge Sara Kate Billingsley and Odessa Mayor Javier Joven.“We’ve had new ideas coming in. we’re trying to bring in as much tradition and culture as we can,” Uranga said. “We’re trying to honor and acknowledge the battle against COVID. … The battle continues. Now, we’re not fighting other countries but other variants that are coming from this pandemic. It’s all of us together. It’s Odessa Strong. We have to respect each other.”Front line workers who have been battling the pandemic will also be recognized at the ceremony with the “Tribute to Pandemic Warriors.”“We Hispanics for Cinco de Mayo want to honor and recognize the individuals, regardless of what their background is,” Delma Chavez said. “It’s all about individuals out there who are trying to reduce the COVID-19 virus from spreading and going above and beyond to assist.”After losing a year of observing Cinco de Mayo in public due to the coronavirus, Uranga said it’s good to be back but that there’s still more to be done with combating the virus.“Right now, we’re hoping that we can get the message across that everyone is doing everything they can to fight this pandemic,” Uranga said. “We have a lot more to be done.”Trying to reach that has been a challenge, according to Uranga.“We have a lot of undocumented people who are not getting vaccinated,” Uranga said. “They have all valid reasons. First of all, they can’t take the risk of a follow up because otherwise their family gets deported. They can’t take the risks and they’re not going to. One person told me that until they can vaccinate her kids, she’s not getting vaccinated. It’s a battle and a problem that we have in the community. It’s not just Mexicans. It’s every community here.“We have other cultures and our whole thing is geared towards working with Medical Center Hospital. We’re recognizing the effort for what they’ve done so far. They can only do so much. We never realized the scope of what was coming in. but we lost a bunch of people and there’s still a bunch of them in the hospital. They’re still fighting it every day. We need to get ourselves vaccinated and wear our masks. One person with that variant is going to kill us again. That’s part of the whole theme. It’s the battle against the pandemic.”According to Chavez, the people being honored as pandemic warriors include MCH CEO Russell Tippin and Midland Memorial CEO Russell Myers.“It means that we’re stepping outside of our comfort zone to recognize individuals who have made a difference in our community and we haven’t forgotten them,” Chavez said. “It means progress. It means that we’ve moved forward.

FBI Charlotte(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — The man suspected of sexually assaulting and killing 13-year-old Hania Aguilar was connected through DNA to a rape from 2016 — but investigators never followed up on that DNA evidence, and if they did, that likely would have saved the girl’s life, prosecutors said Wednesday.“This hurts,” Robeson County, North Carolina, District Attorney Johnson Britt told reporters. “This is like taking a punch to the gut and not being prepared to get it.”Michael McLellan, 34, is accused of abducting and killing the teen in November. Her disappearance sparked a massive manhunt and her body was found in Robeson County weeks later.Britt said he met with Hania’s mother and stepfather “to explain to them what had happened to express my regret, and our regret, that this had been missed. And that in all likelihood had this gone forward and we established a case against him at that time, Hania would not have died.”The missed opportunity came in 2016 when a victim’s rape kit — for a case in which there was no suspect — was sent for analysis, Britt said.The kit was analyzed in 2017, and Britt said the district attorney’s office was told there was a hit from the Combined DNA Index System, known as CODIS, meaning that DNA found from the 2016 victim’s rape kit possibly matched DNA of someone already in the system.CODIS contains DNA samples of known offenders convicted of felonies. McLellan had been convicted of first-degree burglary in January 2007, a class D felony, according to the North Carolina Department of Corrections’ website.Britt said an email including that information was sent to the sheriff’s office, copying the district attorney’s officeAt that point, Britt said that information should have given the sheriff’s office probable cause to seek a search warrant, obtain a DNA sample from McLellan and compare that sample to the 2016 rape kit.As Britt held the CODIS report in his hand Wednesday, a reporter asked him if the information on that paper could have saved Hania’s life.“Potentially yes, and probably yes,” Britt responded.Britt said his office and the sheriff’s office are trying to determine how this evidence was overlooked.Hania was abducted outside her home at the Rosewood Mobile Home in Lumberton on the morning of Nov. 5.She had taken the keys to her aunt’s SUV to start the car when a man dressed in all black with a yellow bandanna over his face forced her in the car and drove away, police said. The stolen SUV was found three days later in Lumberton.Britt said Wednesday that, through the recovered car, McLellan became a suspect in Hania’s kidnapping one week after she vanished, though he was not officially named a suspect until weeks later. By that time McLellan was in custody for a different crime, prosecutors said.Evidence from Hania’s recovered body also linked McLellan to the crime, Britt said.McLellan is charged with 10 felonies in Hania’s case including first-degree murder, first-degree forcible rape, statutory rape, abduction of a child and first-degree kidnapping, the FBI said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

The trial has wrapped for the day.Mar 29, 5:27 pm3rd witness, who told Chauvin to stop kneeling on Floyd, testifiesDonald Williams, the professional mixed martial arts fighter who can be heard in a witness video criticizing Minneapolis police officers during their encounter with Floyd, was called by the prosecution as its third witness Monday.Williams was walking around the corner from the Cup Foods when he heard a commotion and saw Floyd on the ground with Chauvin kneeling over him, he testified.Floyd “was speaking in a distressed way” when Williams got there, vocalizing to the officers that he was in pain and that he wanted his mom, Williams said.“His breathing was getting tremendously heavy,” Williams said, adding that it was apparent that he was struggling to gasp for air.At one point, Floyd’s eyes then “slowly rolled to the back of his head” and his nose started bleeding, and soon after he was “lifeless,” Williams said.Williams said his experience as a fighter led him to believe that Chauvin’s position on Floyd’s neck was putting Floyd in imminent danger.Another witness on the scene who is a paramedic told the officers multiple times to check Floyd’s pulse, but no one did, Williams said.Mar 29, 3:54 pmProsecution calls 2nd witness, employee of store across the street from Cup FoodsAlisha Oyler, a shift manager for the Speedway located across the street from Cup Foods, first noticed police officers “messing with someone” when she began watching the encounter involving Floyd, she told prosecutors Monday.Oyler took seven separate video recordings on her cellphone but could not immediately recall details, stating that it had “been so long.”Mar 29, 3:48 pmDefense tries to establish that 911 dispatcher was not an expert on use of force policiesDuring a cross-examination, defense attorney Eric Nelson walked 911 dispatcher Jena Scurry through the timeline of the encounter and pressed her on her knowledge of Minneapolis Police use of force policies.Nelson seemed to want the jury to know that Scurry was not familiar with how police handled such incidents.Scurry acknowledged that she has only seen police incidents play out live on monitors in the dispatch center three to four times in the seven years she has been a dispatcher.ABC News’ Whitney Lloyd contributed to this report.Mar 29, 1:44 pm“My instincts were telling me that something was wrong,” 911 dispatcher saysJena Scurry, the Minneapolis 911 dispatcher, told the court she had a “gut instinct” that something was wrong.Scurry said she continued to take calls but noticed that the squad car in front of the Cup Foods did not have officers surrounding it.The next time Scurry looked up, she saw the officers placing Floyd in the back of the car.Scurry said she later knew “something might be wrong” when she saw Floyd on the ground.When Assistant Minnesota Attorney General Matthew Frank asked what made her think something was amiss, Scurry said dispatchers rarely see videos of active scenes on those cameras. Moreover, the fact that Floyd went from the back of the squad car to the ground and officers had not requested additional assistance worried her, Scurry said.“I took that instinct and called the sergeant” who supervises police officers, she said.Court recessed for lunch after Frank was done questioning Scurry.Mar 29, 12:37 pmProsecution questions first witnessJena Scurry, a 911 dispatcher who watched Floyd’s encounter with police unfold on a fixed police camera, was the first witness to take the stand Monday.Scurry began by explaining the tools she utilizes to do her job. She said dispatchers have access to cameras that are placed around the city.Mar 29, 12:10 pmOpening statements have wrapped.Mar 29, 12:00 pmFloyd was struggling with officers before Chauvin arrived, defense saysFloyd was struggling with officers who were trying to get him in a squad car when Chauvin arrived on the scene, Nelson said.After Chauvin asked whether Floyd was under arrest, he assisted the other officers in their attempts to get Floyd in the car.The struggle was so profound that the squad car could be seen rocking back and forth in a fixed police camera. The image caught the attention of a police dispatcher, Nelson said.Chauvin then used what is called a “maximal restraint technique” to restrain Floyd, Nelson said.“You will learn that Derek Chauvin did exactly what he was trained to do over the course of his 19-year career,” Nelson said.Mar 29, 11:54 amThe evidence goes beyond the video, defense saysEric Nelson, Chauvin’s defense attorney, emphasized during his opening statement that the evidence for the case is “far greater than 9 minutes and 29 seconds.”The evidence has been collected “broadly and expansively” and includes several police experts and at least 200 civilian witnesses, Nelson said.Nelson will spend the trial talking about “reason and common sense and how that applies to the evidence,” Nelson said.The store clerk at Cup Foods who accused Floyd of making a purchase with a fake $20 bill will be among those who testify, Nelson said.Attorneys will also question one of Floyd’s friends who was in the Mercedes-Benz after he left the store. The friend previously stated that Floyd consumed what she believed to be two Percocet pills before police arrived. Floyd then fell asleep, Nelson said.When officers arrived, Floyd put drugs in his mouth in an effort to conceal them from police, Nelson said.Mar 29, 11:29 amThree witnesses “called the police on the police” during Floyd encounter, prosecutor saysThree people who witnessed Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck called 911 on the officers who were at the scene, Blackwell said.A first responder, who was distressed that the officers were not checking Floyd’s pulse or performing chest compressions on him, called the police, Blackwell said.Another man, who Blackwell described as a “very focal” bystander with a background in security and mixed martial arts, also called the police.The third person was a 911 dispatcher who could see the encounter through a fixed police camera on the scene.The incident was “so unusual, and for her, so disturbing,” that she called a sergeant at the police department to alert him to what was happening, Blackwell said.Mar 29, 11:42 amChauvin watches intently as prosecutor plays witness videoBlackwell played a portion of the 9 minute and 29 second video taken by a witness on May 25, 2020.“For half of that time, Mr. Floyd was unconscious, breathless and pulseless,” Blackwell said.Blackwell said Floyd can be seen repeatedly heaving his right shoulder into the air. This move was an attempt by Floyd to expand his ribcage so he could breathe, as he was “pancaked” between the hard pavement beneath him and Chauvin on top of him, Blackwell said.Chauvin watched intently as the video was played in the courtroom.Mar 29, 11:05 am“Mr. Chauvin betrayed his badge,” prosecutor saysDerek Chauvin failed the responsibilities that come with the badge he was given by the Minneapolis Police Department when he pressed his knee on George Floyd’s neck and killed him, prosecutor Jerry Blackwell said in opening statements Monday.Part of the oath Minneapolis police officers take is to enforce the law “courteously and appropriately,” while “never employing unnecessary force,” Blackwell said, adding that Chauvin violated both when he engaged in the “grinding and crushing” of Floyd “until the very life was squeezed out of him.”“Mr. Chauvin betrayed his badge,” Blackwell said.Floyd was unarmed, in handcuffs and did not present a threat to anyone, Blackwell said.“He was completely in the control of the police,” Blackwell said. “He was defenseless.”Blackwell vowed to give Chauvin a fair trial, but stated that he was “anything but innocent” on May 25, 2020 — the day that Floyd died.The prosecution plans to prove that Chauvin engaged in “force that he applied without the regard for its impact,” Blackwell said.Mar 29, 10:50 amAttorneys for George Floyd’s family speak ahead of trialThe civil rights attorneys representing the family of George Floyd — Benjamin Crump, Antonio Romanucci and L. Chris Stewart as well as Rev. Al Sharpton — spoke to reporters Monday morning.“Today starts a landmark trial that will be a referendum on how far America has come in its quest for equality and justice for all,” Crump said, with Floyd’s family present.Crump stressed that the evidence against Chauvin speaks for itself, saying this “murder case is not hard.”“We’re not asking for anything extraordinary,” Crump said. “We’re asking for equal justice under the law.”Mar 29, 10:36 am15th juror to be excusedHennepin County District Court Judge Peter Cahill will excuse the 15th juror chosen for Chauvin’s trial as court gets underway.The first 14 jurors are present and will be sworn in and seated.Eight jurors are white and six are people of color, including four jurors who self-identify as Black.

Winkworth has launched a business that plans to make hay from the demise of Britain’s high streets as development and commercial investment switches to creating homes within former offices and retail space.The company has hired Adam Stackhouse, who for the past seven years has worked at Bective Leslie Marsh heading up its Land and New Homes division in central London.Winkworth says his team will be looking at development and commercial opportunities created by shifts in the economic environment and the lack of footfall to high streets.But it also hopes to profit from the changes in planning legislation designed to speed up the delivery of new homes in former office and retail spaces following the extension of Permitted Development Rights.Initially the team will operate within Zones 1-6 in London followed by further expansion into commuter areas such as Guildford, Godalming, Woking, and Reading.Planning reforms“Planning reforms are creating a huge opportunity to regenerate the link roads leading to the high street, where there are boarded up shops which are no longer sustainable.,” says Stackhouse.“These buildings will be very attractive to investors for conversion into homes, revitalising the streetscape and bringing more residents into the area.“This will then create more demand for a more concentrated area of retail in the high street.“The demand for office buildings is also changing, as a result of Covid-19, where buildings may be suitable for residential or for reconfiguring into spaces for a new way of working, where people may not be in the office every day.”Read more about permitted development.adam stackhouse permitted development winkworth September 18, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Of course, you know it isn’t.There are methods you can use to reach that goal. They were explained years ago in the book, Influence, The Psychology of Persuasion, written by marketing master Robert Cialdini.One of Cialdini’s six tool of persuasion he described in the book is Social Proof.Social Proof goes by a variety of names, some not so flattering, but the concept is easy to grasp. The idea works all around us, not only with advertising. Through some sort of influence, people conform to a group idea or, in advertising, choose a particular product.You probably know an individual or family who always drive the same make of car. They might be Ford people or Chevy owners. Maybe they go so far as preferring a particular model, like the Mustang. These people are following Social Proof. Because the grandfather or father or someone with influence claimed one make of car was the best, all the others follow suit. continue reading »
In 2016, Naman Gupta visited New Delhi’s Nehru Place Market to put together a custom gaming PC. What he found was a bunch of stores that were willing to handover lists of products to pick from, but couldn’t help him in figuring out what parts would work together best, or what alternatives to go for if the parts he wanted weren’t available. For gaming enthusiasts — a growing tribe in India, albeit still a niche — this wasn’t a new experience. But a frustrated Gupta took a step that many thought was strange — he decided to set up a store himself, from his own home.Dropping out of college in 2017, Gupta would watch YouTube videos to learn how to assemble PCs, and started a business selling these under the name Volted PC. Before long, he had his own outlet in Nehru Place, and was collaborating with YouTubers and organising events in universities.- Advertisement – Naman Gupta of Volted PC working on one of his rigsPhoto Credit: Volted PCCOVID-19 has been a win for people in the games industry games like Ludo King and Among Us have found great success in connecting people during the pandemic, and entertainment at home has gotten a boost — many people who stopped gaming once, got out of college and suddenly found themselves with more free time, and a lot more money than they did in college, and want to have some fun.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – With more people buying gaming hardware during the pandemic, businesses like Volted PC are seeing demand skyrocket. Volted PC typically shipped 40 to 50 systems per month, and that’s gone up to between 60 and 70 a month during the pandemic. Hyderabad-based MVP is another company in this space, and its numbers are up to 130-140 systems a month. Then there’s Delhi-based ANT-PC, which saw a 3X boost, and says it’s shipping between 300 and 500 systems per month.MVP co-founder Mohd. Ahmer was a project manager in Dubai who quit the daily grind of the corporate world in 2015. But in his hometown of Hyderabad, he said that the PC retail scene was even worse than Delhi’s.MVP co-founder Mohd. AhmerPhoto Credit: MVP“There was a lot of misinformation going around, with sellers primarily looking to push their stocked products rather than cater to the customers’ needs,” he said. “For instance, if a PC build needed a 550W power supply, stores would usually push an 800W unit saying ‘this is more powerful’ and the unsuspecting customer would go ahead and buy it.”Ahmer started by helping his friends set up their own gaming PCs, and then got his first order for a PC from a customer in Goa. He’d ship PCs from a spare room at home until opening a store in Hyderabad in 2017.ANT-PC is another company in the custom gaming rigs space but unlike Volted PC or MVP, this wasn’t the work of an unsatisfied customer who decided to make a difference. The people behind the company were already working on selling PC components and PC products, and this seemed like a logical next step.ANT-PC CEO Himanshu JainPhoto Credit: ANT-PC“We realised that there was a dearth of premium PC-building outlets that went beyond pushing whatever they had in stock,” said Himanshu Jain, CEO of ANT-PC. “These builders wouldn’t put their systems through stress or burn tests. All they would do is build a PC, check if the display is working, and be done with it.”Why do people come to a builder when the parts are available online?For 21-year-old Anirudh Paheja, purchasing a custom-built gaming PC essentially meant getting his hands on a glass cabinet as seen on the streaming videos of his favourite YouTuber, Ninja. After browsing online and finding most builds expensive, Paheja and his friends headed over to Nehru Place – New Delhi’s go-to destination for PC parts. After some unfruitful experiences at regular PC stores, Paheja stumbled across Volted PC.Paheja immediately spotted the same cabinet he was hunting for, put on display alongside other equally attractive looking cabinets. “Other stores would only show me photos or YouTube videos of the cabinets and builds they offered. Whereas, at Volted PC, I saw the glass cabinet I wanted sitting right in front of me,” he said.As of May 2020, MVP has shipped nearly 4,500 units all over the country, enabling the company to move to a two-storey building, complete with dedicated testing labs and even a YouTube space for producing system building videos, to get the word out.Mumbai-based Ajay Arora, who purchased a system for his 15-year-old son this year during the lockdown said, “MVP shared detailed videos of the assembly process before shipping the system to us. When the package arrived, they also shared a video of how to remove the safety packaging from the system’s parts.”Volted PC’s gaming rigs range from around Rs. 48,000 for the cheapest build, to an average of around Rs. 1.43 lakh for the brand’s most-selling builds. For MVP, the cheapest builds start from around Rs. 35,000 and goes up to an average of Rs. 1.5 lakh for the most-selling ones. ANT-PC builds start from around Rs. 28,500 for the budget-friendly options and go up to around Rs. 1.25 lakh for the average, popular builds. This doesn’t include monitors, for which top-end options can go to another lakh.Checking the cost of the parts for Volted PC’s Rs. 1.43 lakh build, we found that it would run to over Rs. 1.6 lakhs. It appears that the brand is giving itself a tighter profit margin over the wholesale price, which means that customers would save both effort — and money.Chennai-based Parsu Ram, 36, purchased a PC from MVP last year for Rs. 7.5 lakhs. He wanted a custom cooling loop built into his system, that alone costs around Rs. 1.3 lakhs. “When I reached out to MVP, they did say that the specs I needed were a bit of an overkill and that I could get a good gaming PC for much less,” said Ram. “However, this was something I always wanted. So, I saved up enough money for some time and went ahead with the purchase.”So what does Ram do with his Rs. 7.5-lakh PC? “I mostly play games and at times tinker around with MLAI computing as a hobby,” said Ram. “It may not make much financial sense to others, but it’s like pursuing a dream for years and grabbing it when the opportunity arises.”A niche within a nicheMany of us stopped playing video games in school or college because there were more important things to do. But gamers have grown up, and the pandemic forced them to stay indoors. Thanks to companies such as Volted PC, MVP, or ANT-PC, they’re dipping their toes back into the hobby, but this is still a small (if growing) number of people, for now.As per a Canalys study published in June this year, shipments of desktops, notebooks, tablets, and workstations declined by 33.3 percent year on year in India during Q2 2020. The PC market is a small one, and gaming is an even smaller part of that.According to Rishi Alwani, co-founder of gaming focused The Mako Reactor, custom gaming PC building remains a “niche within a niche” market in the country. “Customers, at large, would still prefer to pick up a laptop than go into building a PC to suit their needs.”Volted’s Gupta remains hopeful that the scenario may change for the better in the near future. “A satisfied customer will always spread the right word and we hope that a demand for custom PCs will also slowly grow with that.”Will Xbox Series S, PS5 Digital Edition fail in India? We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. But, kitting out a gaming PC isn’t easy, and so, companies like Volted PC are also getting the benefit of increased interest in gaming, according to Gupta. “We wish to bring customisations to customers,” he said. Just like Volted PC, MVP and ANT-PC also share a similar enthusiasm in delivering the right product to the customer at the right price, with proper after-sales service to boot.Customers are willing to spend lakhs to get a computer that doesn’t just have the right high-end components, but also comes with the right amount of swag, such as bright lighting that changes according to what’s on the screen, glass cases to show off your premium peripherals and neat wire management, and exotic cooling systems to get the last ounce of performance out of all this hardware, he explained.If this sounds strange, it’s not all that different from other hobbies — a car enthusiast may spend several thousand just to get the right bug deflector for their SUV. A gaming enthusiast might spend the same on the perfect mechanical keyboard with backlighting. Sometimes, they’re even the same person.Volted PC, MVP, and ANT-PC: Meet the players- Advertisement –
Loading… Luis Suarez will not be joining Juventus this summer, despite having been closely linked with the club for the past month, reports from Spain suggest.The 33-year-old was reportedly an option for the Bianconeri following the termination of Gonzalo Higuain’s contract and his subsequent move to Inter Miami.Speaking earlier today, Barcelona sporting director Ramon Planes seemed to suggest that Suarez was expected to leave the Blaugrana as the club were in the process of signing a new striker.RAC1 journalist Gerard Romero now writes (see below) that Suarez has effectively ruled out a move to Turin, largely due to issues over his passport.

Lopez said he was concerned about the demands of the calendar, with the Olympics coming in the middle of the North American hard-court season leading up to the US Open. The 34-year-old wrote on his Facebook page: “I want to communicate my resignation to participate in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games based on the calendar, and with the aim of having the best possible tournaments this summer and especially in the US.”I have always felt a special pride in representing Spain in all competitions and this has therefore been a very difficult decision.Lopez came close to podium success during the London Olympics with partner David Ferrer that saw the duo placed fourth in the doubles.“Both Games gave me the opportunity to live an unforgettable experience as an athlete.I now hope other colleagues who perhaps have not had the opportunity to represent Spain in Olympic Games can enjoy the same. I wish them all luck in Rio.”Deciding to concentrate on other tournaments, Lopez will not be joining 2008 Olympic champion Rafael Nadal, who has been selected to carry the Spanish flag at the Opening Ceremony on August 5.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Spanish tennis player Feliciano Lopez has announced he will not take part in the 2016 Rio Olympics due to scheduling challenges.The world No 23, who would have been a likely choice for the Spanish Olympic Committee, has previously reached two Olympic Games in 2004 and 2012, but failed to win a medal on either occasion.
There’s an old sentiment in the sporting world that states the more experienced teams often perform the best. Don’t tell that to the Wisconsin volleyball team.After having practiced as a team for just a short time this spring, sophomore Kirby Toon was pleased with her team’s 25-23, 25-17, 25-21 victory Saturday over UW-Milwaukee.“We’ve only been practicing for about a week, so it’s looking pretty good,” Toon said. “We have a very young team with a lot of new players coming in.”The Badgers’ roster features many underclassmen and includes only three seniors.Head coach Pete Waite was also impressed by his young team’s performance. He highlighted a few keys to the win that they had practiced during the preceding week.“I thought our serve receive was pretty solid,” Waite said. “That’s something we’ve been working on during our individual workouts and team workouts.”The Badgers were aced just three times and committed only four receiving errors in total.Senior Allison Wack, who led the team with 17 kills in the match, agreed her team’s improved serve receiving was an integral part of their success.“We are just seeing better serve receive than last year,” Wack said. “Overall I think it was great. We’re working on a whole lot of new things and new techniques.”Waite explained some of the new ideas he and his staff have already started to implement.“We had Kirby Toon and Al Wack jump-serving with topspin, which was new for them. They did a nice job,” Waite said. “That always puts the opponent on their heels a little bit.”The new serving technique did seem to throw the Panthers off, allowing the Badgers to pick up several easy points throughout the match. Wisconsin recorded 11 aces, including two by Toon and four by Wack.UW-Milwaukee, however, also presented some unique challenges for the Badgers. The Panthers play in a slightly different way than Waite and his team is accustomed to seeing.“Milwaukee runs a very fast offense so they’re flying all over the place and they’re tough to keep up with,” Waite said. “As a bigger team from the Big Ten, we played a smaller team from the Horizon League that’s a great ball handling team and I think our ball handling stood up with theirs; it’s not an easy thing to do because every conference recruits in a different way.”Although the Badgers stood up to most of the challenges that Milwaukee presented, Waite and his players know there is still much to be learned.Waite specifically addressed the team’s struggles with maintaining a high hit percentage. The Badgers struggled in that statistical category, hitting only .141. In 2009, Wisconsin finished with a .172 percentage for the season.“Our hitting percentage needs to be better; we need to bring that up,” Waite said. “After a week of team training, that’s a really good reminder to us of what [we] need to focus on even more.”The Badgers are hoping they can improve in all areas this spring while also gaining valuable experience for the more trying fall season.“Our goal isn’t necessarily [about] the wins and the losses,” Toon said. “It’s to go out and improve every time we play.”
A Dept. of Public Safety officer and his fiancee were found late Sunday dead from gunshots in a parked car in Irvine, Calif.The victims, who were found in the vehicle at about 9:10 p.m., were identified as Keith Lawrence, 27, and Monica Quan, 28. Gunshots were not reported that night, and the bodies were only found after a passerby noticed Lawrence slumped over the steering wheel, according to police. Law enforcement officials are continuing to investigate the crime as a double homicide, not a murder-suicide.Lawrence joined DPS in August 2012 and at the time of his death was assigned to patrol operations, according to DPS Capt David Carlisle. He was an armed officer and a graduate of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Academy. His fiancee Quan was a assistant basketball coach for the Cal State Fullerton women’s team. Both were graduates of Concordia University.DPS Chief John Thomas released a statement Monday regarding the shooting:“It is with great sadness and a very heavy heart that I announce the untimely death of a member of the DPS Family, PSO I Keith Lawrence. Officer Lawrence and his fiancée were discovered deceased earlier this morning; victims of a senseless act of violence in the City of Irvine.During his brief tenure of service here at USC, Officer Lawrence proved to be an honorable, compassionate and professional member of our department and the Trojan Family. We are a better department and the USC Campus Community is a safer place as a result of his service.Please continue to espouse those same values of honor, commitment to duty, professionalism and compassion as we continue to add to his legacy and those that we all share as members of the law enforcement/public safety community.I would also ask that you remember Keith and his fiancée’s families in your thoughts and prayers as they grieve and begin the healing process and move forward from this tragic loss of their loved ones.”

Comments David and Kathryn Eastwood walked into the Tennity Ice Pavilion more than an hour before the puck dropped for the Syracuse against Rochester Institute of Technology game.Neither team was on the ice yet. The Eastwoods took their seats in the bleachers on Dec. 2, right near center ice. Then they waited for their daughter, Lindsay, to take the ice with rest of the SU squad.“I tell everybody that I talk to, ‘Don’t ever miss your kids stuff,’” David Eastwood said. “Your kids’ sports, that’s gonna happen … and some day, it’s no longer going to be there. And you’re going to miss it.”He knew that empty feeling too well.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLindsay, a redshirt freshman who was on the Canada U-18 team while in high school and had Olympic aspirations, missed all of last season. A medical condition discovered just weeks before the school year started prevented her from playing contact sports. There was no reason as to why it happened, but after multiple tests, it appeared like her future hockey career was over.Her parents tried to help her find other ways to still compete. They encouraged her to try rowing, and Lindsay showed potential in that sport, too. But she still preferred the sport she’d been playing she was six years old.In August, Lindsay’s rare autoimmune disease unexpectedly reversed itself, even though there was less than a 5 percent chance of that happening. She was cleared to play contact sports again, and is back on the ice with a second chance.“Oh, it’s pretty cool, man, it’s pretty cool,” David said as he saw his daughter skate on for a line change. “It’s exciting to see her playing again.”“I never thought we’d be doing this again.”,When the doctor in the emergency room said “blood clots,” after numerous tests in August 2015, it didn’t mean anything to her. But she knew something was wrong when she saw that her mother, a nurse, had a blank expression on her face.“She’s always so strong and she doesn’t freak out or panic or anything in situations when I’m sick or injured,” Lindsay said. “… When I could see the fear in her eyes, I knew I should start to worry, too.”Lindsay felt pain in her side and chest. Twice, she went to a physiotherapist, assuming that the discomfort was coming from some sort of pulled muscle or potential back spasms. She even had a professional massage lined up.With each passing physical test, though, Lindsay’s condition didn’t improve. She felt weak, like she was unable to move. Then she started getting a fever. By the time she was in the ER, she struggled breathing, her parents said.The original diagnosis was pulmonary emboli: blood clots that travel to the lung. The condition can be life threatening. Syracuse team physician Dr. James Tucker said Eastwood’s youth and fitness contributed to it not being life threatening.He added the reason he imagines it took so long to diagnose Lindsay with the blood clot was because it wasn’t something doctors looked for. She doesn’t smoke, isn’t overweight and isn’t sedentary for long periods, such as being on airplanes.“When you see a Canadian Junior Olympic player,” Tucker said, “… (who) says, ‘Well my side hurts,’ well 99 times out of 100, it’s going to be because she does have a pulled muscle.”Lindsay was given anticoagulants, blood-thinning medication that stops the clots, right away. She felt immediately better when she got the first.Doctors thought she’d have to be on that medication for about three to six months. She’d be risking her health playing contact sports on blood thinners because it could cause significant internal bleeding, Tucker said. And if she wanted to be taken off the medication, there’d be about an 11 percent chance she’d get another blood clot in her lung and about a 50 percent chance that, if she did, it would be fatal, he added.By October, the blood clot in her lung had dissolved and by late November, Lindsay prepared for another blood test. Lindsay said she felt normal. Her parents thought about the fastest way to get her back into her practices.Her parents had packed bags with all her equipment, ready to bring it to Syracuse. The bags stayed home.The test revealed Lindsay had antiphospholipid syndrome, an autoimmune disease in which the body mistakenly attacks normal proteins in the blood and makes a patient more prone to blood clots in the future.It’s a rare condition, estimated to affect just 40 to 50 out of 100,000 people each year, according to Medscape.com. It’s considered incurable. It meant blood thinners for life and no hockey.The Eastwoods were “blindsided.” They had only envisioned the episode in August would keep their daughter out for three months. Now, she wasn’t going to be able to play again. When Dr. Philip Wells, Lindsay’s Canadian thrombosis specialist, gave Lindsay the news, he hugged her and started crying, Kathryn Eastwood said.… When I could see the fear in her eyes, I knew I should start to worry, too.Lindsay EastwoodAs the year progressed, Lindsay would have her blood tested about every three months to monitor the condition.“From our point of view, losing hockey at first was nothing, because we could have lost our daughter,” Kathryn said. “But as she got well, and as time went by and she regained her fitness, then we started missing hockey again.”Watching SU play Boston College in 2015, the last game before a nearly month-long break for the ice hockey team, Lindsay cried realizing she couldn’t be on the ice. When she trained at home over winter break, she remembers going through workouts and thinking to herself, “What am I working toward now?”SU honored her scholarship, despite the fact that she wouldn’t play.Lindsay experienced sorrow stronger than she had ever felt. But in the back of her mind she was considering what other sport she could try.“I’m not ready to not be an athlete yet,” Lindsay remembers thinking. “It’s weird to think you’re upset about one thing, but you have to move forward.”,At an indoor rowing center at Brock University (Ontario), Lindsay pushed herself physically on a bike, where both the arms and the legs have to move, as part of an endurance step test.Paul Beedling, a talent identification and development coach for Row to Podium, watched Lindsay. Row to Podium is an organization that tests athletes to find ones who can be molded into Olympic-level rowers. David Eastwood had gone online, found the group and arranged the testing after Lindsay briefly mentioned rowing as an interest.“It goes right until exhaustion, so they can’t maintain the rpm (revolutions per minute),” Beedling said about the step test. “When they get into that territory and they begin to suffer, that’s our first chance to kind of see their mental toughness.”For female athletes, the test starts off at 50 rpm and every minute the rpm increases by five. The goal is to be able to get to the 80-rpm mark, which would take six full minutes. Coaches look to see who pushes past that mark.Lindsay rode for seven or eight minutes, Beedling said. Among the roughly 275 kids that he tested that year on the bike test and other exercises, she was one of the 10 best, he said.They sent results to the Syracuse rowing team. She practiced with the team all spring, but never competed. When she got back home for the summer, she was assigned a one-on-one rowing coach, Laryssa Biesenthal, a bronze medalist in both the 1996 and 2000 Olympic Games.Playing in team sports her whole life, Lindsay wasn’t used to training alone, and rowing focused on different muscles from those used in hockey.“I remember the first few weeks with the rowing team I couldn’t believe I made it through it,” Lindsay said.Getting into a boat was tricky for her, too. It was wobblier than she thought it’d be. But she kept at it and by mid-July, she felt comfortable rowing.Biesenthal thinks Lindsay has potential to be Olympian. And Lindsay was ready to use rowing as her path to the Olympics.“I wouldn’t say I’d gotten over hockey at that point,” Lindsay said. “But I had moved on.”,When David Eastwood returned home one day in mid-August, he saw Kathryn and Lindsay walking toward the door to greet him, both crying.“I’m walking and I’m going ‘What the hell just happened,’” David said. “‘Did somebody die in our family?’”They were celebrating that Lindsay’s last blood test had come back negative. Almost a year to the day after her diagnosis, her antiphospholipid syndrome had disappeared.That specific blood test only happened because SU asked for it. Wells, the doctor, stressed to them not to get their hopes up.“All the other blood tests that we ever did, and there were many, we were holding our breaths and really hoping that it would change,” Kathryn said. “And this was the first time we weren’t even thinking about it because we didn’t think there was any possibility of it changing at this stage.”Eventually, Kathryn, who works at the same hospital where the tests were conducted, received the rest results.She came home, gave Lindsay the news and the two hugged. Then Kathryn watched her daughter run around the house in joy. A few minutes later, Lindsay called SU ice hockey head coach Paul Flanagan. She told him she was eligible to return.“It was like disbelief with happiness, but you’re still guarded,” Kathryn said. “You still think, ‘Really? Is this for real?’”Then, to double check and confirm the first test wasn’t a fluke, Lindsay had a second test done several weeks later at SU. Negative, again.It was like disbelief with happiness, but you’re still guarded.You still think, ‘Really? Is this for real?’Kathryn EastwoodAfter the ecstasy of the moment subdued, Lindsay felt overwhelmed. She wasn’t prepared to play hockey. She thought she’d never play again.“I haven’t been sprinting, and here I’m thinking I’ll never have to sprint again because I’m not a fan of that,” Lindsay said.She ended up going on the ice to practice every day for the next two weeks to catch up before returning to campus.Before Lindsay’s first preseason game, Kathryn bought her daughter an Alex and Ani brand bracelet with a charm hanging on it. The various bracelets and charms that Alex and Ani sell have different names for different things they represent. The one Kathryn bought represented “unexpected miracles.”Now she feels back to her level of play before the illness. She’s put rowing to the side as she focuses on hockey, but she might pick up rowing again later in life.The game against RIT went into overtime. With three seconds left, Lindsay fired a shot from in front of the net. It was deflected and hit the boards as the buzzer sounded.David jumped up and yelled “Ah Lindsay, so close,” let down that Syracuse, and Lindsay, didn’t win the game.But the disappointment didn’t last long. She had a chance to score a game-winning goal. She’d be able to play again the following day. And she had her parents there, watching her.That all seemed impossible five months ago.“I think she’s getting sick of us,” Kathryn joked about their attendance at all the games. “Because we’re not missing anything.”Banner photo by Bryan Cereijo
OTTAWA, Canada- CMC — The Government of Canada has warned nationals to avoid travelling to Haiti as violent protests and widespread civil unrest have been taking place across the nation for several weeks.According to security officials, the situation in the French-speaking Caribbean country could deteriorate quickly and large demonstrations are scheduled to take place from November 4 to 6.“In addition to this volatile situation, the country is also experiencing water food and fuel shortages. Many businesses and banks are closed, making it difficult to access cash and commodities of all kinds.”The Canadian Government said roadblocks have been disrupting transportation across the country.“There have been reports of armed protest orders who throw rocks or shoot at vehicles that get close or kidnap people for ransom money.”On Friday, Radio Canada said there has been widespread hostility towards citizens from the United States and Canada.“Last week protesters reportedly threw rocks at the Canadian Embassy in Portau- Prince…the walls in Port-Au-Prince are covered with graffiti against the UN and also against what everyone here knows as the ‘Core Group’, a group of donor countries, including Canada, the United States, European Union and the Organization of American States…”The political and economic crisis in Haiti was triggered by the publication in January 2019 of a report on the Venezuela-funded PetroCaribe Oil initiative, under which Caracas provided oil and other petroleum products to Haiti under a preferential agreement.Opposition parties have been staging street demonstrations over the past weeks demanding the resignation of President Jovenel Moise, whom they have accused of engaging in corruption linked to the Venezuelan funded oil initiative, PetroCaribe.But Moise, who came to power in 2017, has said he has no intention of stepping down and instead has proposed a national dialogue so as to move the country forward.
“It’s nice but it doesn’t really mean much,” Paul said. “We won the division title last year and lost in the first round. Last year we would have gone into the game knowing we had a chance to win the division. Now we don’t care, it’s all about the bigger picture.”Eight Suns reached double figures, led by Marcus Morris with 16 points.Phoenix would have been alone in the No. 7 spot in the West with a victory, just a half-game behind Golden State. Instead, the Suns fell into a three-way tie with Memphis and Dallas for the last two playoff spots in the West. Phoenix would lose the tiebreaker the way things stood Wednesday night.The defeat followed a blowout loss to the Lakers in Los Angeles on Sunday.“We had this game almost in our pockets,” Goran Dragic said. “But now is not the time to think like that, because we still have to have our confidence up to play those last seven games. `’ PHOENIX >> A 17-point third-quarter lead was not enough for the Phoenix Suns, not the way the Clippers are playing these days.Darren Collison and Blake Griffin scored 23 points apiece and the Clippers beat the Suns 112-108 Wednesday night, their fourth win in a row and 17th in the last 19 games.Chris Paul added 20 points, including a 32-foot 3-pointer just before the shot clock expired to put the Clippers up for good 108-106 with 1:48 to play.Los Angeles, winning the last four on a five-game trip, clinched the Pacific Division title with the win.

Dudley’s 3-pointer with 5:57 to go cut it to 97-94.“You know, we won the game because of our second unit,” Los Angeles coach Doc Rivers said. “Honestly, when we were down 17, I was thinking if we didn’t cut into it, I was just going to keep them out on the floor, but then they cut into the lead so quickly.” Dudley’s two free throws put Los Angeles ahead 105-104 with 2:38 left. Eric Bledsoe’s 9-foot floater gave the Suns their last lead, 106-105 with 2:15 left.

Tucker had three rebound baskets in the run. He was fouled on his final one, capping the big run with a three-point play that gave Phoenix its biggest lead, 91-74, with 1:49 left in the period. The Clippers scored the next four to trail 91-78 entering the fourth.Phoenix led 62-60 at the break.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts platooned Pederson with right-handed Trayce Thompson during the first half of last season and limited Pederson’s playing time against left-handed pitching (he had just 77 plate appearances against lefties all season). This spring, Roberts has said Pederson will get more at-bats against lefties in 2017 based on the desire to keep his glove in center field and faith that Pederson will improve against left-handers.“Both,” Roberts said. “Obviously, we like his glove out there in center field and his ability to slug.”Pederson finished second among last year’s Dodgers (to Corey Seager) in slugging percentage (.512), OPS (.847) and OPS-plus (129). None of that damage was done against left-handed pitching, however. Pederson was 8 for 64 (.125) with 22 strikeouts and hit just one of his 25 home runs against left-handers.Pederson asserts he doesn’t have a problem with left-handers despite a .178 average in two big-league seasons against them – “I mean, I hit .300 off them my last year in Triple-A,” he said. Instead, his offseason focus was on making some adjustments heading into his third season that will give him a more mechanically sound swing regardless of what kind of pitching he is facing.“I think if your body is not in a good position, you’re not going to hit. With any approach you have,” Pederson said. “So I needed to make some mechanical changes to get myself into a better hitting position. And when you have that in order, you can move on to your approach and focus on how pitchers are attacking you. “These pitchers are good and they know how to throw it to certain locations and if you’re not able to hit those locations, you’re an out. So you’ve got to mechanically get in a good spot.”Roberts sees a more consistent “path to the ball” from Pederson this spring and “more consistency with his approach.” Pederson homered to lead off the game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday, his third home run in the Cactus League (no other Dodger has more than one).“With Joc, even if you go back to last spring, there was a lot of tinkering and really trying to figure out what works best for him,” Roberts said. “The second after the season ended, he made an adjustment with his swing. There’s a little step-back thing going and it gets him in a good position to fire. I think from that point on he kind of found a baseline for his swing mechanically. Then outside of that an approach piece, a plan piece.“Every hitter is different. The important thing is when he gets to that point to where he’s ready to fire on the baseball, his hands are in a consistent position. That’s where he’s at right now.”TV guideThe Dodgers, Spectrum Networks and KTLA reached agreement to simulcast SportsNet LA’s broadcast of 10 early-season games on the Los Angeles station, making them available to a wider audience as the Dodgers’ distribution stalemate enters a fourth season.The 10 games made available are April 5 (vs. the Padres), April 9 (at Colorado), April 12 (at Wrigley Field), April 16 (vs. the Diamondbacks), April 18 and 19 (vs. the Rockies), April 23 (at Arizona), April 30 (vs. the Phillies), May 3 (vs. the Giants) and May 7 (at San Diego).Return dateRoberts said Corey Seager (back), Andre Ethier (back) and Andrew Toles (hyperextended right knee) are expected to play again Saturday after sitting out most of this week with minor injuries. In Seager’s case, he has played just three games with six plate appearances this spring.“For us, it’s fine,” Roberts said. “Spring training is long as it is, especially on the position players’ side. … Obviously we expect him to play a lot this season. So for him to essentially get a week to be down is not the worst thing.”Last spring, Seager was missed the final 19 days of the Cactus League schedule, played in the Freeway Series — and then led the Dodgers in games played (157) and plate appearances (687) in the regular season. GLENDALE, Ariz. >> Brian Urlacher might be coming out of retirement again.Late last season, Dodgers center fielder Joc Pederson took to wearing a face guard on his helmet for at-bats against left-handed pitchers. Pederson joked that the face guard made him feel like the retired Chicago Bears linebacker.It did more than that. It gave Pederson a visual cue to “keep my front shoulder in longer and be able to use the whole field” against lefties. Pederson said he has ordered another face guard from the equipment manufacturer and might wear it again this season.If so, that face guard could get more exposure.

CLEAR LAKE — A Clear Lake man facing a life prison term on sexual abuse charges has entered into a plea deal with prosecutors. 40-year-old Edric Morris was arrested on February 14th on one count of third-degree sexual abuse and one count of lascivious acts with a child. Authorities at the time said both charges were Class A felonies since both were second or subsequent violations. The charges stem from a complaint received in late January of this year involving a child under the age of 14. Morris had previously been convicted for lascivious acts with a child in Cerro Gordo County in 2012. Morris recently entered an Alford plea to two counts of third-degree sexual abuse and one count of lascivious acts with a child. With an Alford plea, a person does not admit guilt but acknowledges there is enough evidence for a likely conviction. All three charges are Class C felonies, punishable by up to ten years in prison on each charge. Morris is scheduled to be sentenced on September 1st.
Two people are dead, and another 20 are injured, after a gunman allegedly opened fire at an off-campus Texas A&M University-Commerce Halloween and homecoming party Saturday night.According to Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks, the shooter may have been targeting a certain person at the gathering of about 750 people in Greenville, which is 15 miles southwest of the campus.The shooting occurred around midnight Saturday. Meeks says the injured included four people who did not have suffer gunshot wounds but were instead hurt while attempting to run from the scene.Authorities believe the male shooter entered the venue through a back door and then began firing with a handgun. He remains on the loose, and they do not know who he is or have a description of him.Sheriff’s deputies had been questioning a party-goer in front of the building due to complaints of parking on the roadway blocking traffic. That is when they heard gunshots coming from the back of the building.Meeks says the two deceased victims are both males, but he did not know if they were A&M-Commerce students.School and sheriff’s officials add that the party was not a school-sponsored event.The party was being held at a facility called The Party Venue. The owner is cooperating with authorities, Meeks says.According to its website, Texas A&M University-Commerce is the second-largest university in the Texas A&M University System. The school, which was founded in 1889, has about 6,000 undergraduate students and 4,000 graduate students.

He indicated the homework was necessary after his time with the Knicks.“What I learned is, if there is not clarity in purpose, vision and mission from ownership to management to coaches to players to staff, it doesn’t work,” he said. “Some of the basketball things are irrelevant if ownership, management, staff, players, if we are not aligned in the way we see going about our jobs and achieving our purpose and our mission.”Since leaving New York, Fisher has worked as a TV analyst.

Your Excellency Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, President of the Republic of Liberia, Your Excellency Joseph Boakai, Vice President of the Republic of Liberia; Your Excellency Alex J. Tyler, Speaker of the House of Representatives; Honorable Ministers, Ambassadors and Heads of Diplomatic Agencies and International Organizations, Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen.I wish to thank you, President Johnson-Sirleaf, for inviting me to Liberia. And thank you, especially for the singular honor of this State dinner. My staff and I have received very warm reception since we arrived in Monrovia this afternoon.Madam President, I wish to celebrate you this evening. You are a jewel to Africa. You are for me, personally, a great source of inspiration. There is no better way for me to round up the celebration of the International Women’s Day than to be here in Monrovia to visit with my elder sister, Africa’s first female President. At the African Development Bank, we are particularly grateful to President Johnson-Sirleaf for chairing the High Level Panel on Fragile States. Her depth of knowledge and intellectual insights, undergirded by solid global and African experience, helped us all to wake up: to realize that we must not look at fragility as a permanent state of nations; but rather, use fragility lenses in understanding the challenges faced by countries undergoing democratic, social and political transitions. Madam President, just over one year ago, I sat in the hallowed chambers of the African Union during the African Union Summit and listened attentively to you as you exposed this new approach. I was convinced that indeed, for Africa to move forward, we need women in top leadership positions. The elegance, the poise, the humane nature, the pulse of your heart were felt all over the hall. No wonder the world listens to you – we feel your heartbeat for development. I congratulate you on your recent appointment by the United Nations Secretary General, Ban ki-Moon, as Co-Chair of the High Level Panel on the Sustainable Development Goals. Madam President, you are Liberia’s best gift to the world for our common good.Your Excellency, I commend you for steering Liberia towards political stability and economic recovery in spite of the decade long conflict. That is why we at the African Development Bank will do everything possible to support you and Liberia. Reconstruction, peacebuilding and state building take time, but I can assure you that this beautiful country of Liberia is on the right path. Liberia is a resilient nation. Over the period 2006 to 2015, Liberia had good macroeconomic performance: GDP growth rate averaged over 7%, inflation was brought down to within single digits, and total external debt reduced from US$ 4.7 billion to US$ 412 million. And just when the country was enjoying better macroeconomic stability, the Ebola crisis hit. The cost was enormous: 4,800 beautiful Liberian souls were snuffed out by the disease and communities were devastated. Businesses and the economy took a beating, as real GDP growth shrank to just over 1.8%, from a high of 8.7% in 2013. Adversities come in life, but the ability to overcome them is what marks out great leaders. President Sirleaf-Johnson, you displayed amazing leadership. Within one year, the Ebola Viral Disease was eradicated in Liberia. Liberia was the first among the three Mano River Union countries to be declared Ebola free. The African Development Bank provided $56 million in budget support to combat the crisis. Let me pay a special tribute to all the people of Liberia: across all communities, you all stood up and today you stand tall out of a major adversity. That is the Liberian spirit- the spirit of resilience!That is why the African Development Bank stands fully on the side of the Liberian people in your drive to keep moving forward. The Bank has always been here, through the thick and thin, the ups and the downs. Since 1967 when it started operations in Liberia, the Bank has financed operations to the tune of over US$ 1 billion. Overall, the Bank’s current portfolio in Liberia comprises 17 operations for a total commitment value of US$ 383 million, with the infrastructure sector (roads, energy, and water and sanitation) accounting for 53% of total commitments. Yet challenges still remain and there is more to be done. For example, only 2% of the Liberian population has access to electricity and about 50% are living in extreme poverty. It is in response to these challenges, which are common across the whole of Africa, that the African Development Bank has now sharply focused its work on five top priorities for Africa, which we call the High 5s: Light up and power Africa; Feed Africa, Industrialize Africa; Integrate Africa; and Improve the quality of life for the people of Africa. These are all well aligned with Liberia’s priorities, hope and aspirations of Liberia, as articulated in the Agenda for Transformation.As blood is to the body, so is electricity to the life of any economy. However, over 645 million Africans currently do not have access to electricity. Today, 700 million Africans do not have access to clean cooking energy, with 600,000 dying each year, mainly women and children, from indoor pollution due to reliance on fuelwood, charcoal and biomass for cooking. Africa is simply tired of being in the dark. That is why the African Development Bank has developed the New Deal on Energy for Africa to accelerate universal access to energy by 2025. Under the New Deal, the African Development Bank plans to invest US$12 billion in the energy sector over the next five years and we hope to leverage US$40-50 billion into the energy sector. We are also establishing a “Bottom of the Pyramid Energy Financing Facility” to provide clean cooking stoves and support energy access for the poorest segments of the population in African countries. And we are starting right here in Liberia, where electricity access rate is 2%. The Bank approved US$200 million financing for the Cote d’Ivoire-Liberia-Sierra Leone -Guinea regional electricity interconnection project. Upon completion, this project is expected to increase the electricity access rate in Liberia and reduce the cost of electricity from 58 US cents per kilowatt hour in 2013 to 15 US cents by 2020. The second High 5 is “Feed Africa”. Africa currently spends over US$ 35 billion in food imports every year, even though the continent has 65% of the world’s total arable land. The Bank is now embarking on a bold effort – together with other development partners- to totally transform Africa’s agricultural sector. Our goal is simple: ensure that Africa become self-sufficient in food and turns itself into a global powerhouse in food and agriculture. Our focus will be on agriculture as a business, to add value to agricultural commodities, diversify economies and turn rural areas into new zones of economic prosperity. Liberia has huge agricultural potential – from rubber, cocoa, cassava and rice. And there is no reason for Liberia to be importing rice at over $100 million annually. Madam President, let us make Liberia fully self-sufficient in rice. It can be done and it will take less than four years. I am pleased to let you know that your Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Moses Zinnah, did his PhD thesis research under my supervision in the early 1990s. We looked at the technology potentials for rice in the Sierra Leone and Guinea. Today, he is your Minister of Agriculture. I am confident that he will perform and with your support help drive Liberia to become self-sufficient in rice within four years. In this regard, I commend you, Madam President, for setting up and personally chairing the Agricultural Transformation Implementation Council to drive the implementation of the transformation agenda. The Bank will strongly support this major initiative to ensure a resurgent agriculture sector. Already the Bank is supporting the development of an electronic wallet system that will allow farmers across the country to access improved seeds and fertilizers via electronic vouchers on their mobile phones – a successful initiative that I launched in Nigeria, as the Minister of Agriculture, before my election as President of the Bank.Our third High 5 is to “Industrialize Africa”. Africa currently accounts for just over 2% of the world’s merchandise exports. Many African countries, including Liberia, are over-dependent on commodity exports and are therefore subject to global commodity price volatilities. Africa must create industrial growth engines that will propel it to become competitive in value addition and manufacturing. The Bank will continue to support the private sector and financial market development in Africa in order to foster rapid industrialization, and help Africa move to the top of global value chains. That is why the Bank is currently supporting the Program for Trade Support Institutions in Liberia (PATSIL) with a grant support of about one million dollars, to further strengthen institutional capacities of the Liberian Chamber of Commerce, the National Ports Authority and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.Our fourth High 5 is to “Integrate Africa”. Africa currently accounts for only 2% of global trade and intra-African trade is just about 12% compared to 69% in Europe, and 53% in Asia. Regional integration is therefore critical for boosting economic growth in Africa. Our collective destiny is tied to breaking down the barriers separating us. The Bank will continue to invest heavily in high quality regional infrastructure—especially rail, transnational highways, power interconnection, information and communications connectivity, air, inland waterways and maritime transport. The integration of the Mano River Union is a priority for the Bank to improve access to basic infrastructure services, foster increased trade, competitiveness and regional security. That is why the African Development Bank approved US$ 106 million for the Mano River Union Road Development and Transport Facilitation Program to support the construction of 277 km road network to link Guinea, Liberia and Côte d’Ivoire. The fifth High 5 is “improve the quality of life for the people of Africa. We will focus on improving access to water, sanitation, public health care infrastructure, education and skills development, and programs to create jobs for Africa’s rapidly growing youth population. The Bank is currently developing a Jobs for Africa’s Youth Initiative which will target 50 million youth over ten years and support the creation of 25 million jobs for the youths across Africa. Already, the Bank approved in December 2015, US$ 1 million financing for the Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship Project in Liberia. This project – which I am delighted will be launched this month – will support the creation of 40 new sustainable businesses, 40% of which will be women-owned, and build the capacity of 2,400 students to better prepare them for the labor market. To further strengthen social resilience of Liberia, and support speedier recovery from the impacts of the Ebola crisis, the Bank is co-financing with the U.S. State Department the $2.7 million initial seed capital for Post Ebola Social Investment Fund, which was approved in October 2015 for Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. The fund will increase access to basic infrastructure and financial services for 5,000 Ebola survivors, 2000 orphans, and 6,000 micro and small enterprises. Your Excellency, Ladies and Gentlemen, Liberia has come a long way. I am confident that the future looks bright for Liberia. I will like to assure you that the African Development Bank will always be your partner of choice. As the African Development Bank starts next week the 14th replenishment of the African Development Fund – so we can provide more concessional loans and grants to low income countries such as Liberia – the resilience story of Liberia is one that must be heard. That is why I thank you very much Madam President for agreeing to be a champion for the African Development Fund replenishment and for deciding to be with us in Abidjan next week for the discussions. As Albert Einstein said “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving”. Liberia must keep its balance – and Liberia must keep moving forward. And as it does, the African Development Bank will always be there to support you.Your Excellency, Madam President, I now raise my glass to toast to your good health and continued success, and to an even stronger partnership between the Republic of Liberia and the African Development Bank. Long live the Republic of Liberia! Thank you very much and God bless you all.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
– calls for ability to reassign boundaries to be transferredFollowing the recent restructuring of 14 Local Government Areas by the Communities Minister, a People’s Progressive Party Commissioner at the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is recommending that the power to do so henceforth reside with the commission.According to PPP Commissioner Robeson Benn in a statement on Tuesday, Minister Ronald Bulkan’s actions raise key questions, which include whether the Commission can afford to stand aside and do nothing. According to Benn, the Commission cannot, and he therefore proposes that the issue of re-districting andGECOM Commissioner Robeson BennGECOM’s role be put on the agenda.“There was a perception that with impending/upcoming Local Government Elections (LGE) 2018, efforts were underway to redraw the electoral map in favour of the ruling or incumbent party, resulting in a distortion of the political intent of the voters of an LAA and a reduction in fair representation of electors,” Benn wrote.“Since gerrymandering is done with the intent of maximising supporters’ votes while minimising those votes of an opponent, it is partisan, and therefore undemocratic and abhorrent. Moreover, and worst yet, the decisions and actions arising out of the installation of a gerrymandered Council are mostly likely to be unrepresentative and despotic, posing risks to the governance of the area and the body politic concerned.”Benn recommended that GECOM be assigned the role of determining elections’ boundaries. He also advocated a name change for the entity… to the Guyana Elections and Boundary Commission (GEBC)“GECOM, as a Constitutional Commission, cannot afford to continue to (be subject to) allegations of lack of transparency, or as ‘the poodle’ of the incumbent in power – whichever party that incumbent may personify.”“GECOM, also, should not continue to be exposed to litigation risks, directly or joined, in relation to simple, avoidable, and transparent practices which enhance its role as the electoral body. It is already embroiled in controversies related to the 2015 National Elections and the Ganga Persaud Petition to those elections,” Benn reminded.In June of this year, an order to remove constituencies from 14 areas was gazetted at the behest of Bulkan. Since Local Government Elections are fast approaching, the Opposition has since accused the Government of gerrymandering. It is something Bulkan has denied.“We are very concerned with attempts to tamper with the (Neighbourhood Democratic Council’s) NDC’s Local Government bodies to gerrymander boundaries to suit (A Partnership for National Unity) APNU,” Opposition LeaderCommunities Minister Ronald BulkanBharrat Jagdeo had said at a previous press conference.“They want to gerrymander the boundaries by splitting an NDC like that, creating two new NDCs so they can win in these areas. That is what is happening now because they fear another crushing defeat,” he had added.The creation of the new towns and NDCs was said to be part of the Administration’s policy and vision of fostering national development via regional and local empowerment, given Central Government’s stated commitment to a philosophy of decentralised governance; but the PPP thinks otherwise.The APNU/AFC suffered a crushing defeat in 2015 at LGE when the PPP received 30,000 more votes than both parties. The PPP also won 48 of the 65 NDCs and tied in seven others. In summary, the party won or tied with 55 of the 65 areas that were contested. They also won three towns, except for the newly created ones.
Spring may be around the corner, but the RCMP is warning drivers to take caution on the city’s roads.The Fort St. John RCMP will be increasing police presence on the city’s roadways to combat speeding as well as drinking and driving.Corporal T.F. Woodall says there were 15 motor-vehicle related deaths in this area, from January to March of last year. – Advertisement -He says the added enforcement is a precursor to when road conditions improve in the spring.

And, he says those people are recognized and congratulated by the RCMP.
WHITTIER – Officials from the California Transportation Commission now plan to recommend full funding for the widening of the Santa Ana (5) Freeway between the Orange County border and the San Gabriel River (605) Freeway. Last week the Commission said it would only advise that half of the $387 million still needed for the $1.2 billion project be allocated, causing an uproar from various agencies and cities involved. But late Monday CTC staff amended their recommendations, agreeing that not fully funding the project “may be a hardship for the implementing agencies,” said Mitch Weiss, deputy director of the CTC. “After talking with the different agencies that will be affected, the Commission decided they wanted to make sure enough money was available to implement the project,” Weiss said Tuesday. The money will come from a transportation bond passed by voters in November that directed $4.7billion for highway improvements throughout California. Originally, the plans called for widening the freeway from the Orange County border in Buena Park to Bloomfield Avenue. But officials in La Mirada, Santa Fe Springs and Norwalk have been pushing for years to extend the project all the way to the 605. The plan now is to widen the I-5 Freeway from six to 10 lanes between Buena Park and the 605, with a car-pool lane on each side. Sixteen years ago those city leaders formed the I-5 Joint Powers Authority to find the funding for the extension. So far, they’ve acquired $800 million, but in order for all the work to be accomplished, they have said they need an additional $387million. Officials claim that stretch of the I-5 is one of the most congested sections of highway in the Los Angeles basin. As both a representative from the Joint Powers Authority and city manager of Santa Fe Springs, Fred Latham said now the project can finally go forward. “I’m very pleased,” Latham said. “It’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride. We were led to believe that they were going to recommend full funding a couple of months ago, then last week they said they’d only give half. Now I’m pleased again.” Much of the pre-construction work has already been completed, including the environmental impact reviews and initial designs, he said. The nine-member CTC will vote today on the recommendations. [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsOne ad by the National Republican Campaign Committee says Democrat Francine Busby helped preside over a skyrocketing deficit while serving on a school board and voted to lay off teachers. She “even praised a teacher reported to have child porn, saying he was always willing to lend a hand,” one ad said, a charge she disputed as despicable as well as untrue. Ordinarily, an election in reliably Republican San Diego wouldn’t draw much national attention. In this case, Democrats sense an opportunity to score at least a psychological victory if Busby can come close to Bilbray when the votes are cast on June 6. If Busby outpolls Bilbray and wins the seat, it would lend enormous credence to the Democrats’ claim that they are on the road to capturing control of the House. Either way, Democratic fundraising would get a boost headed into the fall. Democrats must gain 15 seats to gain a majority. WASHINGTON – There’s no room for the politically squeamish in the special election for what normally would be a safely Republican congressional seat around San Diego to replace convicted former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham. The two political parties, feeding voters a steady diet of attack ads, are on track to spend a staggering $4 million or more combined in what amounts to a costly, caustic preview of the fall battle for control of the House. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee depicts Republican Brian Bilbray as a veteran of Washington’s revolving door, a former congressman who has also lobbied for the maker of a drug suspected in dozens of deaths and an energy firm that was sued for price gouging. “So while he may not shake things up in Congress he knows how to shake them down,” one commercial says. For their part, Republicans are outspending Democrats significantly House Speaker Dennis Hastert held a fund-raiser for Bilbray. Equally important, Hastert sat down with conservative Republican Eric Roach, one of several party officials who urged him not to run as an independent in the June election. Roach recently announced he would step aside.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

He certainly pitched like he had most home games with the A’s, holding the …
It was a fall day in Elk Grove, the suburban town 20 minutes of Sacramento, and Marquese Chriss was going long.The newest Warrior was in eighth grade and playing in a game for the middle school football team. He was a promising tight end. Fast but also long, gangly. Chriss ran a deep route, went up high and sprawled out for the catch but landed awkwardly on his shoulder. The x-ray evidence was not positive: fractured collarbone.Up until that day, all Chriss had wanted to do was play …
How will big bang theorists deal with the latest news?First there was the Great Wall. Then there was the Sloan Great Wall, and a supercluster system dubbed Laniakea. “But the newly spotted BOSS Great Wall, with a total mass perhaps 10,000 times as great as the Milky Way, is two-thirds bigger again than either of them,” New Scientist reports today about a billion-light-year galactic “wall” that may be the largest object observed in the cosmos so far.Galaxy superclusters also have competition for the “biggest known object” crown. Some distant light sources like quasars or gamma ray bursts seem to be clustered together in certain regions of the sky. If they are truly connected, they belong to structures so large that current cosmological theories can’t explain them.To be fair, the classification is subjective. Some astronomers think the material in the structures are not physically linked. If nothing else, though, they illustrate the lumpiness problem in cosmology. The universe is not a smooth sea of particles as theory would predict. Instead, “On the grandest scales, the universe resembles a cosmic web of matter surrounding empty voids – and these walls are the thickest threads.”Far OutPeering deep into space, a new “cosmic distance record” was set by the Hubble Space Telescope, reports the BBC News. A galaxy with redshift z=11.1 has been observed. It’s called GN-z11. Its high redshift would put its origin 13.4 billion years before the present in standard cosmology, a mere 400 million years after the big bang. The very first stars might become observable. “They are probably another 200 million light-years beyond even GN-z11.”Dr Oesch and colleagues say GN-z11 is one-25th the size of the Milky Way with just 1% of our galaxy’s mass in stars.“The surprising thing is how bright it is (for what it represents), and it’s growing really fast, producing stars at a much faster rate,” said the Yale astronomer.“So, it’s challenging some of our models, but it’s showing galaxy build-up was well under way early on in the Universe, and it’s a great preview for [the] James Webb [Space Telescope], which will be pushing even deeper to see the progenitors of this galaxy.”The James Webb Telescope may be able to see redshifts between 15 and 30, indicating objects only 100 to 250 million years after the big bang. Science Daily explains where GN-z11 needs to fit in current theory:“The previous record-holder was seen in the middle of the epoch when starlight from primordial galaxies was beginning to heat and lift a fog of cold, hydrogen gas,” explains co-author Rychard Bouwens from the University of Leiden, the Netherlands. “This transitional period is known as the reionisation era. GN-z11 is observed 150 million years earlier, near the very beginning of this transition in the evolution of the Universe.”A galaxy of stars this mature so close to the beginning of the universe was not predicted by big bangers, Space.com says:However, the discovery also raises many new questions as the existence of such a bright and large galaxy is not predicted by theory. “It’s amazing that a galaxy so massive existed only 200 million to 300 million years after the very first stars started to form. It takes really fast growth, producing stars at a huge rate, to have formed a galaxy that is a billion solar masses so soon,” explains Garth Illingworth of the University of California, Santa Cruz.Marijn Franx, a member of the team from the University of Leiden highlights: “The discovery of GN-z11 was a great surprise to us, as our earlier work had suggested that such bright galaxies should not exist so early in the Universe.” His colleague Ivo Labbe adds: “The discovery of GN-z11 showed us that our knowledge about the early Universe is still very restricted. How GN-z11 was created remains somewhat of a mystery for now. Probably we are seeing the first generations of stars forming around black holes.”If this trend continues, the James Webb telescope may push theory to the breaking point after it launches in 2018.A piece on PhysOrg states, “The early universe consisted almost entirely of hydrogen atoms, but at some point – probably about 500 million years after the Big Bang – the first stars formed.” Something is dreadfully wrong here. One cannot have a galaxy turning up 100 million years earlier than the first stars. Maybe the new physics theory announced by PhysOrg will rewrite the textbooks. Readers may wish to see why a Caltech astronomer found something “frustrating, but interesting” about the first galaxies. “For a while we were convinced that we were missing something important,” he said on PhysOrg, but then he and his colleagues were “shocked” when theory matched his prediction. It must be a rare occurrence.Other cosmologists, like those on Science Daily, will continue to speak glibly about the leading theory that posits “a region of space the size of a single proton vastly expanded to form the beginnings of our universe” in a fraction of a second. Somehow, the article says, the universe learned how to make French onion soup from that sudden explosive beginning.Let’s recap. The big bangers did not predict this galaxy or the BOSS Great Wall. They were amazed. It was a great surprise. The GN-z11 galaxy should not exist, but it does. The big bangers admit that their knowledge about the early Universe is still very restricted, after decades of research. Such objects are a mystery to them. Their cosmological theories cannot explain them. And yet they get to keep their jobs? Sounds like government workers. (Visited 102 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
A new documentary from the Discovery Institute exposes what evolutionists are trying to cover up: “scientific racism” by Darwinians.The documentary “Human Zoos,” written and directed by Dr John West of the Discovery Institute, is now available on Amazon Prime for viewing. See the trailer here.In his new book Evolution’s Blunders Frauds and Forgeries, Jerry Bergman debunks the fraudulent belief that facial angle was an indicator of intelligence.The film speaks for itself, but perhaps the most important message is how practically the entire scientific establishment, including leading anthropologists from Harvard, Yale, Princeton, the University of Ohio, the Smithsonian were behind “scientific racism.” They supported not only eugenics, but also rationalized the public display of non-white humans in zoos. The story of Ota Benga, an African pygmy, is given prominent coverage.Displays of human “missing links” were not only PT-Barnum-style stunts, but serious attempts by leading scientists to help the public “understand” human evolution. Now, these same institutions, including the Bronx Zoo and the American Museum of Natural History, are trying to whitewash what happened there. They refused to be interviewed for this film or even answer questions, and no indication of their misdeeds can be found in their public facade. A traveling display about Darwin from the museum, in fact, mentions nothing about scientific racism, except to call “social Darwinism” a corruption of Darwin’s ideas. And yet almost all the leading evolutionary scientists of the day in the early 1900’s were guilty of advancing eugenics and racism.To show how important this issue remains, the film gives examples of school boards refusing to allow curricula to even mention the dark side of Darwinism, including scientific racism and eugenics. They want a sanitized Darwin with a halo, so that evolution gets the distinction of being the only scientific view recognized by today’s “consensus.”The film shows how Christians were the primary ones denouncing these atrocities, arguing that all men are created equal and made in the image of God.Watch Human Zoos now, and get others to watch it. Maybe the Darwinian history of racism will be its undoing. If this history is forgotten, the evil root of Darwinism, which ranks people by their “fitness” to society, will rear its ugly head in other, more pernicious ways. Some would argue that it already has (see October 9 entry).Darwinians had a long history of ‘scientific racism’ and white supremacy.For more on Ota Benga and the racism of the 20th century Darwinists, read Jerry Bergman’s alarmingi book, The Darwin Effect.

19 August 2004Roland Schoeman won a second medal for South Africa in the swimming pool at the Athens Olympics, picking up silver in the men’s 100 metres freestyle. It was oh so close too, as Dutch star Pieter van den Hoogenband successfully defended his title in 48.17 seconds to Schoeman’s 48.23.It was a sensational performance from the South African star, previously regarded as a 50 metres specialist. He was well backed up by close friend Ryk Neethling, who swam 48.63 to finish just outside of the medals in fourth spot, with Australia’s Ian Thorpe adding a bronze to his already sizeable collection of Olympic medals. The second and fourth place finishes for the two South Africans underlined the country’s strength in the event – clear for all to see in Sunday’s world record performance in the four-by-100 freestyle relay.“You spend your whole life dreaming of getting to the Olympics, let alone winning gold and silver”, Schoeman said after the race. “Some people may say I lost gold, but I won silver.” SA swimmers stun the world Parkin misses outTerence Parkin won silver in the 200 metres breaststroke at the Sydney Games, but he won’t have a shot at repeating that result in Athens. Swimming in the semi-finals, Parkin managed only a seventh-place finish in his heat, in a time of 2:14.12. His silver medal winning time four years ago was 2:12.50.Gerhard Zandberg swam in the semi-finals of the men’s 100 metres backstroke, but failed to progress to the final. That result is not a train smash, though, as Zandberg is a 50 metres specialist.Rowing medal hopesThere are still strong hopes that rowers Donovan Cech and Ramon Di Clemente can come through with a medal winning performance in the men’s 1 500-metre pairs. After beating the Croatian World Championship silver medalists in the heats, the SA pair scraped into the final in a very tough semi-final heat.It was neck-and-neck with the Canadians for the third place necessary to qualify for the final when the two crews touched oars. The Canadians were found to have infringed by crossing into the South Africans, and Cech and Di Clemente were awarded third spot. As bronze medal winners at the World Championships, they will be keen to add an Olympic medal to their collection.Gareth Blanckenberg, sailing in blustery conditions in the laser class, struggled to make his mark. Ranked fifth in the world, he managed twenty-second place in the first race, sixteenth in the second, thirty-first in third, and thirteenth in the fourth. That was good enough for nineteenth position overall.Lewis eliminated in last sixteenArcher Kirsten Lewis advanced to the last sixteen in the women’s 70 metre competition after edging India’s Sharma Sumangala 157-153 in the round of 32. However, the fifty-second ranked Lewis had a tremendous run cut short in the quarterfinals by China’s Ying He, who triumphed 156-142.Hockey heartbreakThe men’s hockey team, like Lewis, also faced Indian competition on Tuesday, and just 12 minutes into the game Craig Jackson and company were flying high. Goals by Greg Nicol and Craig Fulton had them two-up.At half time South Africa was still in charge at two-one ahead, but after the break India started dominating territory and possession, although South Africa made some incisive counter-attacks without making any count.The Indian dominance was eventually made to count as they leveled at two-all. And then, heartbreak in the final 90 seconds as Indian netted twice to steal a 4-2 victory, a scoreline that was ultimately very misleading.More hockey disappointmentThe SA women’s hockey team’s disappointing run continued with another sound defeat, this time to South Korea. After losses by 6-2 to The Netherlands and 3-0 to Australia, Susan Webber and company were in need of a good result, if only for a boost to the spirits, but it wasn’t to be.The Koreans dominated the game and secured a deserved 3-0 victory as South Africa were curiously toothless up front. Where they really disappointed was in the effeciency of their penalty corner, which lacked accuracy in an area so vital to success in the international game.Badminton: steep learning curveAthens 2004 has proved to be a harsh learning experience for South Africa’s badminton players, who played in the Thomas and Uber Cups (World Championships) for the first time this year.Chris Dednam and Antoinette Uys bowed out of the mixed doubles in the round of 32, losing 15-3, 15-9 to Taipei, while Michelle Edwards lost 11-6, 11-3 to India’s Aparna Popat.The rest of the team’s results were even bigger losses. Dednam won only one point as he succumbed to Thailand’s Boonsak Ponsana in the men’s singles, Michelle Edwards and Chantal Botts were whitewashed 15-0, 15-0 by Germany in the women’s doubles, and Dorian James and Stewart Carson won only five points against the USA in the men’s doubles.Competition on the beachSouth Africa’s beach volleyball players have put in a good showing, and proved to be nicely competitive.The men’s combination of Gershon Rorich and Colin Pocock beat Greece’s Pavlos Beligratis and Athanasios Michalopoulos 21-16, 24-26, 15-10 in a classic tussle, then fell to Argentina’s Mariano Baracetti and Martin Conde 21-14, 21-15.In women’s action, Leigh-Ann Naidoo and Julia Willand went down 21-7, 21-10 to second-seeds Behar and Bede of Brazil. They then turned in a great performance against highly-rated Cubans Tamara Peraza and Dalixia Grasset, losing 21-19, 21-16.Boxers: so close yet so farSouth Africa’s boxers disappointed, although middleweight Khotso Mutau’s disappointment was that he didn’t close out a victory over World Championship silver medal winner Oleg Mashkin of Ukraine.Mutau started strongly and enjoyed a four-point lead heading into the final round at 19-15. Mashkin, however, came on strong at the end as Mutau tired to take a 25-22 win.Lightweight Bongani “Wonderboy” Mahlangu came up short against Rovshan Huseynow, losing 22-14 on points, while featherweight Ludumo Galada, lost to Shahin Imranov when the referee stopped the fight in the third round.Cyclists, fencers struggleCyclist Ryan Cox did well to finish in sixty-ninth place in the men’s road race, facing a field littered with top-class athletes, many of whom featured prominently in the recent Tour de France. There was disappointment for Tiaan Kannemeyer and Robbie Hunter, though, as neither finished the event.South Africa’s sole female cycling representative, Anriette Schoeman, struggled with the heat and managed only fifty-fifth place.South Africa’s fencers also struggled, with all three – Rachel Barlow, Kelly Wilson and Natalie Tychler – losing in the round of 64 in the Epee competition.Gymnast Zandre Labuschagne managed sixtieth in qualification for the women’s all round competition.
2 August 2005Two 190-million-year-old dinosaur embryos from a group of seven eggs have been identified as the oldest dinosaur embryos yet found. Discovered in South Africa, they are also the oldest known embryos for any terrestrial vertebrate – and the oldest evidence that dinosaurs were caring parents.The embryos are of an Early Jurassic prosauropod dinosaur, according to Dr Mike Raath of the Wits Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research (BPI). Raath is one of five authors who describe the embryos in the 29 July 2005 isssue of leading international journal Science.“The embryos belong to the early sauropodomorph dinosaur Massospondylus carinatus,” he says. “These skeletons are quite common in South Africa and range in size from small juveniles to full adults, up to about five metres in length. This identification is a major coup, because embryos are often difficult to identify to species.”The late Professor James Kitching of the BPI discovered the cluster of eggs and their the embryos at the Golden Gate Highlands National Park in the northeastern Free State in 1977.These are the oldest known dinosaur embryos. Two were exposed in the group of seven eggs. One of them is almost complete, and appears to be trapped in the act of hatching.The embryos are the oldest known for any terrestrial vertebrate, and so the oldest embryos in an amniote egg known from anywhere in the world.Since their discovery the eggs sat on a shelf in Wits University’s fossil store, awaiting someone with the necessary skill to prepare the fossil eggs for detailed study. The tiny embryonic bones are extremely delicate, and intricately curled up in the eggs.“In January 2000, Professor Robert Reisz of the University of Toronto at Mississauga in Canada was on a research visit to South Africa, and borrowed the fossil eggs to take back to Canada,” says Raath. “There Diane Scott of his lab carried out the detailed and difficult preparation under high magnification using a special microscope and achieved spectacular results.”Robert Reisz (left) with James Kitching, who discovered the fossilised dinosaur embryos in 1977 (Photo: Wits University)The growing dinosaurThe embryos provide significant insights into the growth and development of this early dinosaur. Raath explains that this discovery allowed the team to reconstruct in detail the growth trajectory of Massospondylus, from pre-hatchling to full adult – a first for any dinosaur.Reisz, the project leader, points out that adults and juveniles of other types of dinosaur are known, but they are usually either recovered from bone beds, where the skeletons are broken up, disarticulated and scattered, or the rare articulated skeletons are not sufficient to reflect a growth series.The growth trajectory of Massospondylus shows that this dinosaur started out as an awkward-looking little quadruped with had a relatively short tail, a horizontally held neck, long forelimbs and a huge head.As the animal grew, the neck grew faster than the rest of the body, but the forelimb and head grew much more slowly than the rest of the body, so the body proportions changed dramatically as the animal grew.Weird-looking animalThis means that Massospondylus changed from a tiny quadruped into a weird-looking large animal with a long neck (still held horizontally), a thick, massive tail, a very small head, short forelimbs, and long hind limbs.The result is an adult animal very different from the embryo, and probably at least partly bipedal. In other cases where embryos and adults are known, as in the hadrosaurs or duck-billed dinosaurs, such dramatic changes in body proportions are not shown.The embryos also provide clues about the origin of the quadrupedal gait of the giant sauropods (the brontosaurs) of later times, which are descendants of the prosauropods.The embryo of Massospondylus looks like a tiny sauropod with massive limbs walking on all fours. This means the quadrupedal gait of sauropods may have evolved through paedomorphosis – the retention of embryonic and juvenile features in the adult.“Some people think that humans too are products of paedomorphosis,” says Raath.Caring parentsThe absence of well-developed teeth in the two preserved embryos, which were clearly on the point of hatching, and the overall awkward body proportions suggest that the hatchlings required parental care of some kind for some time after emerging from the egg.If this interpretation is correct, it constitutes the oldest known indication of parental care in the fossil record.The embryos are about 190-million years old, from the Early Jurassic Period. Most other known dinosaur embryos are at least 100-million years younger, from the Cretaceous period of 80- to 65-million years ago.The five co-authers of the Science paper are Professor Robert Reisz, Diane Scott, David Evans, Dr Hans-Dieter Sues, and Dr Mike Raath.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
Google and China are again at odds, this time with accusations by Google that China is interfering with Gmail. Internet users in China have reported difficulties with Gmail over the last few weeks, complaining that the email service is slow or unavailable.While it’s been made to look as though it’s a technical problem on Google’s end, the search engine giant says that the Chinese government is responsible. “There is no technical issue on our side. We have checked extensively,” says a Google spokesperson. “This is a government blockage carefully designed to look like the problem is with Gmail.”The Guardian contends that the move by the Chinese government may be a response to the “Jasmine Revolution” – an online effort to spur pro-democracy efforts in China following the uprisings in the Middle East. Whatever the motivation, it isn’t the first time that Google and China have run into problems with each other. In January of last year, Google accused China of launching hacking attacks, an effort purportedly to gain access to the accounts of Chinese dissidents.The issues with Gmail make it the latest Google product that cannot be fully accessed in China, joining YouTube, Blogger, and Google Maps as banned or restricted services. Google has refused to comply with the Chinese governments censorship demands, and as a result has seen its search engine market share continue to drop in China. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market audrey watters A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Google#news#NYT#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…
Each individual movement of the second hand on a clock is tiny. From a distance, it looks as if the hand moves continuously. Unless you are really close, the time between movements are so small as to be almost imperceptible. But each tick is immediately followed by the next.The minute hand is not much different. The distance the minute hand moves every sixty seconds is also very small. But it moves that distance anyway, relentlessly ticking forward, even if only a tiny, tiny bit.The hour hand traces it’s slow path around the face of the clock, too, It moves so slow that it only makes its journey twice in 24 hours. But it never stops, it never waivers, and it never quits. It relentlessly follows its path.This is how time works. It keeps moving forward whether or not you decide to do something between the ticks, between the seconds, the minutes, or the hours. But the clock provides a valuable lesson on success for those who are willing to learn: it never stops moving. It is the small, continuous, unrelenting tiny actions that lead the bigger movements that follow.You could be just as relentless as time, just as relentless as the clock that marks time’s passing. You could decide to fill the space between the ticks with the actions that lead to larger outcomes. The time is going to pass either way.QuestionsWhat small actions relentlessly taken lead to the bigger outcomes you need?What are you doing between the ticks?
Almost all civil society organisations in Manipur announced on Sunday that they will join the Citizenship Bill agitations on October 3 throughout the Northeast region in protest against the moves to pass the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.A meeting of the representatives of the civil society organisations and social activists was held in Imphal on Sunday to reaffirm their stand against the Bill.Dilipkumar Yumnamcha, convener of the Manipur People Against Citizenship Amendment Bill (MANPAC) formed by over 84 civil society organisations in Manipur said, “People in the Northeast States are fuming over the one nation, one language theory. The people in Manipur have been agitating all these days contending that when enacted this Bill will be against the interest of the indigenous peoples of this region”.Even States such as Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram and Nagaland where there is travel restrictions of the outsiders since the Inner Line Permit is in force are not happy with the Bill.Mr. Yumnamcha said that because of the ferment in the NE States the Bill could not be tabled in Rajya Sabha. “However it does not mean that it will not be passed”, he added.All political parties in Manipur are also holding a meeting on Monday to make their stands clear to the people over the Bill.Chief Minister of Manipur N. Biren said that the Bill, when enacted, shall not harm the people of the State. However, his detractors maintain that people take his assurance with a pinch of salt. He said that police parolling and surveillance are intensified over the border towns said to be entry points of the illegal migrants.Another burning problem in Manipur is the forthcoming accord the Indian government is likely to sign with the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-IM). Several prominent politicians say that while the people welcome the forthcoming agreement with the NSCN(IM) they say that nothing should be done to threaten the unity and integrity of Manipur. Sunil Karam, president of United Committee Manipur which is for the protection of Manipur’s territory said that if Manipur’s voice is muffled people will “take up the cudgels to avenge the deaths of 18 persons on June 18, 2001”. They were protesting against the “without territorial limits” words in the agreement with the NSCN(IM).
SHARE SHARE EMAIL Published on COMMENT 0 October 09, 2017 × COMMENTS SHARE sport The International Cricket Council (ICC) is set to approve plans for its long-awaited World Test Championship at a meeting in New Zealand this week, it was reported today.The sport’s governing body has argued for years that a Test championship is needed to boost the five-day format’s popularity as crowds and television viewers flock to the big-hitting Twenty20 version of the game.But squabbling over formats and fears that some nations will be disadvantaged have twice stymied efforts to launch a league structure since 2010.The Sydney Morning Herald reported that plans for a nine-nation Test championship were now well advanced and the ICC was set to give the concept a green light on Friday at a meeting in Auckland.It said the first edition of the competition would run over a two-year cycle beginning in 2019, culminating in a final between the top two teams at Lord’s.Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland said that the league competition would give Test series a broader international “context”, making them more than stand-alone bilateral contests. “You’re also creating structure in such a way that you no longer have games without meaning. They are all part of a league championship,” he told the Herald.Purists view Test cricket as the pinnacle of the sport but it has struggled, particularly in Asia, as lucrative T20 competitions such as the Indian Premier League have caught the public’s imagination.A recent innovation designed to reverse the trend is the introduction of day-night Test matches, which moves playing sessions to more spectator-friendly hours.The idea of four-day Test matches has also been floated, although traditionalists oppose the move.The Herald reported that the ICC will also look at a major shake-up of one-day international fixtures at the Auckland meeting.It said a 13-nation ODI league was being considered, which would operate on a three-year cycle with results affecting World Cup qualification.Under the plans, the number of ODIs in a series would be capped at three, ending the lengthy five-match series that are currently part of the international fixture list. cricket
AS Roma celebrated Francesco Totti’s final game after 25 seasons at the club by beating Genoa 3-2 to clinch second place in Serie A on Sunday after 16-year-old Pietro Pellegri had given the visitors a shock lead.One-club man Totti, 40, came on in the 54th minute for his 786th appearance, and his 619th in Serie A, in what had been dubbed “Totti Day” by Italian media.Diego Perotti grabbed a 90th-minute winner for Roma as they finished one point ahead of Napoli whose 4-2 win at Sampdoria on the final day of the season was in vain.The win means that Roma qualify directly for next year’s Champions League group stage while Napoli’s third place sends them into the final qualifying round — where Italian teams have lost in six of the previous eight seasons.Roma finished on 87 points, four behind Juventus who finished their campaign with a 2-1 win at Bologna on Saturday.At the bottom, Empoli became the third and final team to go down when they lost 2-1 at already-relegated Palermo and were overhauled by Serie A debutants Crotone who beat Lazio 3-1, helped by two goals from Andrea Nalini.Seventh-placed Inter Milan finished an otherwise unhappy season in style, beating Udinese 5-2, while Gregoire Defrel scored a hat-trick for Sassuolo but still ended up on the losing side in a 5-3 defeat at Torino.Totti confirmed on Thursday that the Genoa match would be his last for Roma, who did not offer him a new contract, but hinted he could continue his career elsewhere.advertisement”There are people who are not normal. There are careers that are not normal. I saw a banner that said the real battle against modern football is to wear the same jersey for 25 years,” said Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi, who himself has been at the club since 2001-02.Roma were quickly in trouble as Pellegri sprinted clear of their defence and fired past Wojciech Szczesny in the third minute to become the first player born in 2001 to score a Serie A goal.Edin Dzeko levelled seven minutes later with his 29th goal of the season, finishing as Serie A top scorer, and Roma missed a succession of chances before halftime.The fact that there was so much at stake for Roma added some real drama to an already highly-charged, emotional occasion and coach Luciano Spalletti, who has restricted Totti’s playing time this season, duly brought on the talisman in the second half.Totti created two good chances before Dzeko got behind the Genoa defence and pulled back the ball for De Rossi to slam home in the 74th minute.But Genoa had not read the script and five minutes later Diego Laxalt floated over a cross which Szczesny missed and Darko Lazovic headed the equaliser at the far post.Lazovic hit the post on another Genoa counter but, just as it seemed that Genoa were about to wreck the party, substitute Perotti popped up to fire in his late winner.Lorenzo Insigne provided the highlight of Napoli’s win when he broke down the left and sent a dipping shot over Christian Puggioni from a seemingly impossible angle just before halftime to put them 2-0 up after Dries Mertens had opened the scoring.Marek Hamsik and Jose Callejon were on target in the second half for Napoli, the league’s highest scorers with 94 goals, while Fabio Quagliarella and Ricardo Alvarez replied for Samp.
NEW YORK — Prep week is over for the New York Mets. Now, it’s on to the playoffs.Jacob deGrom looked especially sharp in his abbreviated tuneup, and the NL East champions finally scored on Curtis Granderson’s eighth-inning homer to beat the Washington Nationals 1-0 in their regular-season finale Oct. 4. “I just think it’s a great way to finish,” Manager Terry Collins said. “I think we’re ready.”One day after Washington ace Max Scherzer pitched a no-hitter with 17 strikeouts to complete a doubleheader sweep, the Mets (90-72) made a run at a combined no-hitter of their own. They reached 90 wins for the first time in nine years and stopped a five-game losing streak that cost them home-field advantage in the Division Series against the Dodgers.Next up, deGrom starts Game 1 in the best-of-five matchup Oct. 9 at Los Angeles. “This is what we play for,” deGrom said. “I’m really looking forward to this.”Seven pitchers combined to hold Washington to two hits — the first was Clint Robinson’s two-out single in the seventh inning off reliever Jonathon Niese.Bryce Harper hustled for a two-out double in the ninth to finish 1-for-4, but that wasn’t enough to beat out Miami speedster Dee Gordon for the National League batting crown.Gordon went 3-for-4 in Philadelphia and finished with a .333 average to Harper’s .330. The front-runner for NL MVP, Harper began the day ahead by the slimmest of margins — .330754 to .330606. The slugger ended his sensational season with 42 homers and 99 RBIs.“I probably could’ve took the last two weeks off and hit .340 and do what I did,” Harper said. “But Dee Gordon is such a great hitter, and he had over 200 hits, and I tip my cap to him because he’s done such a great job all year long.”Jeurys Familia retired Jayson Werth on a fly to center for his 43rd save, equaling the franchise record set by Armando Benitez in 2001.With the Mets gearing up for their first postseason appearance since 2006, deGrom was pulled after throwing 72 pitches in four innings. He struck out four of his first five batters and finished with seven strikeouts.“I feel ready,” deGrom said. “I worked on some things and my changeup’s definitely getting better, so today was a big step for me.”Bartolo Colon and Logan Verrett each tossed a hitless inning of relief before Niese entered in the seventh. With two outs, Robinson sent a sharp two-hopper up the middle that went between Niese’s legs and caromed off the shin of shortstop Ruben Tejada as he tried to make a sliding stop.The ball ricocheted into right field, and official scorer Jordan Sprechman ruled it a hit almost immediately.Tyler Clippard (4-1) struck out two in a perfect eighth. Moments later, Granderson launched a drive to center off Blake Treinen (2-5) for his 26th homer of the season and third hit of the game.It snapped New York’s scoreless stretch of 18 innings and marked the team’s second run in a span of 43 innings.Following the final out, Mets players came back onto the field for a victory lap and saluted a crowd of 41,631 that pushed New York’s total attendance to 2,569,753 — highest since the club drew more than three million during Citi Field’s inaugural season in 2009.With the NL East championship banner flying above the ballpark and flapping in the wind, captain David Wright grabbed a microphone and thanked fans for their support. “Let’s go beat LA!” he said.For the second-place Nationals (83-79), a World Series favorite way back in spring training, it was a fitting end to a tumultuous and disappointing season.“We thought we had one of the best teams in all of baseball,” Harper said.Key players such as pitcher Jordan Zimmermann and shortstop Ian Desmond can become free agents; a choked-up Desmond shed tears in the clubhouse.It might have been the last game with Washington for embattled Manager Matt Williams, too. Amid speculation Williams is likely to be fired, General Manager Mike Rizzo said a decision will be made soon.“We’re all disappointed in the outcome,” Williams said. “It provides fuel, it provides fire to everybody to understand where we’re at now and to look forward to getting back to where we want to be.”(MIKE FITZPATRICK, AP Baseball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shares

Can United break down sides? Can Manchester City handle it against more physical sides?“If you look at United, you saw them make mistakes at Stoke and there were chances for Everton, but ultimately the weaknesses they have shown at the back are covered by a goalkeeper in David de Gea who is absolutely world-class.“Jose Mourinho has always been a good manager at home and he is happy to sit in and let teams expose themselves, and United’s record at Old Trafford is now no defeats in 12 months since City won there.“To me they are looking a lot better than before in terms of breaking sides down and killing off games.”United pulled level with City again over the weekend, with Mourinho’s men offering up a 4-0 victory over Everton in response to a crushing 6-0 win over Watford by their neighbours.Both sides have collected 13 points from five fixtures so far, while netting 16 times apiece and conceding only twice.

Cryptic messages on Instagram following the loss led many to believe the 30-year-old Vidal would take a similar path to his club team-mate at Bayern Munich, Arjen Robben, who Tuesday announced his retirement from international football following the Netherlands’ elimination from the 2018 World Cup.However, Vidal, made it clear via a message on Twitter that he is not done with Chile just yet, while lamenting the failure of this qualification campaign.“I am so sad, like most Chileans. We have lost our dream. We have all committed mistakes, yes. Now we must learn and try not to repeat them,” Vidal said in his message.“It is sad not to have managed our goal after such efforts.

Our national team.“That’s why I am sure that ALL TOGETHER, we will be back stgronger than ever. Don’t ever write us off, we are Chilean Warriors. Onwards Chile, see you in the next battle. LET’S GO CHILE DAMMIT”Vidal has had numerous successes alongside his Chile team-mates. The nation won both the 2015 Copa America , their first ever triumph in the tournament, and the 2016 Copa America Centenario, which took place between the nations of CONMEBOL and CONCACAF.They also finished second in this past summer’s Confederations Cup, losing out to Germany in the final.

Mohali: With Kagiso Rabada’s yorker being the talk of the town, it will be interesting to see how the Delhi Capitals pacer counters the hard-hitting Kings XI Punjab batsmen when the two teams clash in an IPL match here on Monday. Rabada helped the Capitals defend the lowest total (10) in a Super Over in IPL history after the scores were tied at 185 in the allotted 20 overs each. Focus will now be on how the South African paceman would fare against the likes of Chris Gayle, Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Agarwal and David Miller. Both sides are riding high on confidence having won their respective matches on Saturday. In fact, both the teams’ opening batsmen were the architect of their victory. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhWhile Delhi’s Prithvi Shaw (55-ball 99) almost took the team home against Kolkata Knight Riders, Rahul (57-ball 71) finished the job for Punjab against Mumbai Indians. Playing on home turf, Rahul, who had failed in his first two matches, played a controlled innings while Gayle (40) and Mayank Agarwal (43) also chipped in with crucial runs to help Punjab comfortably chase down the 177-run target, set by Mumbai. Gayle was his usual self and batted in the manner only he can as 36 of his 40-run knock came in boundaries and sixes. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterRahul has the ability to steady the innings and play sheet anchor’s role and Gayle can puncture opposition camp’s plans to control the run flow, something that Delhi would be worried about. Punjab’s bowling is spearheaded by Mohammed Shami and with other key players such as Andrew Tye and Hardus Viljoen in their ranks, it may not be easy for the visiting batsmen. Moreover, Ravichandran Ashwin-led KXIP would also have the advantage of playing at home and they will look to exploit familiar conditions once again. Delhi though will be desperate to get the momentum going after winning a close game. Chasing 186 to win against KKR, Delhi were set up nicely by Shaw but they failed score six runs from the last over, taking the match to Super Over. However, Rabada’s sensational yorkers in all six balls restricted KKR to just seven runs while chasing 11. Delhi will be hoping not to let that advantage slip. Besides Shaw, Delhi also have the likes of Rishabh Pant, who played a superb knock of 78 to pile up a mammoth 213 against Mumbai Indians in the first match, Shikhar Dhawan, captain Shreyas Iyer and Colin Ingram. They would expect their batsmen come out all guns blazing against Punjab on Sunday.
Rabat – If anything, the second leg CAF champion’s league final between Morocco’s Casablanca’s Wydad and Tunis’ Esperance at the Rades stadium in Tunisia was an unforgettably scandalous night.For those who were left utterly disappointed at the injustice Wydad of Casablanca suffered last Friday in Rabat, where does yesterday’s sabotage stand in comparison? How does one even start to recount the unfolding of what looked like a deliberate, planned footballing fiasco?At the kick off time, yesterday’s second leg confrontation between Tunisia’s Esperance de Tunis and Morocco’s Wydad de Casablanca, there was already a palpable sense of tension and frustration in the air. Nerves were high, even mercurial, on both sides—courtesy of a battle to emerge from the stained first leg, where an untold number of refereeing mistakes robbed the Moroccan side of a significant home victory. Both sides, in this sense, went in yesterday’s game to rise from the lingering bruises of that grandly controversial first leg.By the time yesterday’s game reached minute 60, however, it was clear that hearts would be broken and dreams shattered.As Bakari Gassama, the Gambian referee of the game, stubbornly refused to yield to Wydad’s rightful demands that VAR be consulted to deliberate on whether the goal that had just been ruled out was valid (it was), there was a feeling that here, too, all had been set up for Wydad to end up on the losing end.By all means, what happened yesterday was an emphatic stain on the honor, or respectability, of Africa’s most revered football contest for clubs. Or, as Wydad’s chairman put it, it was a “total shame for African football,” perhaps the most outrageous African Champions League final.To put it briefly into context: Esperance had been leading the game by 1-0, courtesy of a first half in which they were slightly superior. But like in the second half in Rabat, Wydad came back from the 15-minute respite more spirited, more driven.Like in Rabat, Wydad was more present and far more dominant in the second half, leaving their Tunisian hosts with the sole option of defending their goal advantage while playing on counters. And like in Rabat, Wydad pressed higher and scored the equalizer in the first minutes of the second half, at minute 49.But, somewhat unsurprisingly, like in Rabat, too, Wydad’s goal was ruled out. In that moment, it felt as though last week’s refereeing fiasco was after all a prelude to an even grander, vastly dishonorable show.After over an hour of deliberation, the game was stopped. Somehow, unexplainably, with nearly 30 minutes to go, the referee blew the final whistle, declaring the Tunisians the winners of the 2019 African champions League. It was brilliantly laughable, the result monstrously unjust to a Wydad squad which, given how they had been playing, could have won the game.Only after the game was it revealed that, actually, the referee rejected Wydad’s call to use VAR because the system was out of order. But the problem is that Wydad, according to their chairman, Said Naciri, did not know about VAR not being operational.“Why would we have asked for VAR to be used if we were informed that it was not operational in the first place?” Naciri insistently lamented in his post-match interview. While the decision to declare Esperance champions was unfair by all definitions of the word, the revelation that VAR was defective compounded the frustration, leaving space to suggestions the game had been rigged all along, skewed in Esperance’s favor.And no, this wasn’t some kind of one-off. It had little to do with those grotesquely disappointing moments when football can feel understandably painful, bearably unbearable. No, this was deliberate, offensively cunning, planned outrage. How can anyone explain that VAR was not functional on a night of the continental Champions League final? Was it deliberate? The answer, reports have it, is a resounding yes. In fact, this was hardly the first time that Esperance “deliberately broke VAR,” according to former CAF Secretary-General Amr Fahmy.“This is unfair,” Naciri lamented after CAF decided that Esperance were the victors. He said his club “will not keep silent” and “will file complaints with FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sports.” He called the match a “failure for African football” and a display of “refereeing massacre.”Putting aside the human propensity to sympathize with the indescribable pain of undeserved defeat, it is difficult to argue against the crux of Naciri’s point. The Wydad chairman was not only right in his assessment of the game as a disgrace and a dishonor to African football just days ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations.Though his outbursts—which were legitimate, anyway—reverberated with the biting, unforgettable aches of undeserved loss, Naciri was actually pointing to something many of us can sympathize with. When, twice in a row, and in the space of just one week, the same team is outrageously denied a fair chance to win a victory it would have deserved, pointing to conspiracy is perfectly warranted. This is no conspiracy theory.After the thoroughly disappointing first leg, it was almost unbelievable that the scene that unfolded before our eyes at the Rades stadium was actually happening. Even the Tunisian press, usually fiery and fervent when it comes to defending their teams, has conceded, somewhat in spite of themselves, that this was “shameful” and “scandalous” for the image of African football days ahead of the continental footballing showpiece.Perhaps the complaints in the Tunisian media are genuine. But they won’t soothe the Wydadi players and fans. The CAF board, meanwhile, has called for an urgent meeting to “discuss a controversial final.” Wydad fans can be pardoned if that “urgent meeting” comes across like a joke: little will come from the meeting.At this point, perhaps, the onus is on the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF). There will be calls among Moroccan fans that, like its Tunisian counterpart, the Moroccan federation should from now on show more aggressiveness and resolve in defending the interests of Moroccan teams at the continental level.Sending post-match letters, however damning and solemn their tone, will do little to reverse the blatant injustice that marred the experience of Moroccan clubs in this year’s CAF tournaments. (RS Berkane, another Moroccan team, was controversially beaten in the second leg of the CAF Cup final against Egypt’s Zamalek.)While FRMF should, as they have said they would, express their legitimate anger and frustration at the CAF board for such scandalous errors of judgment in the course of two season-defining games, they should really consider being more present in the behind-the-scenes, off-the-pitch battles which sometimes dictate much of what happens on the pitch.

The human rights defenders were sentenced in August to prison terms ranging from three to 15 years. Thirteen of them are from the Initiative for the Resurgence of the Abolitionist Movement (IRA), a leading Mauritanian civil society organization fighting against slavery. “The Mauritanian Government is hostile to civil society groups that criticize its policies, and is especially hostile to groups like IRA, whose members are drawn from the Haratine minority and advocate for an end to slavery,” the experts said in a news release, recalling that the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Philip Alston, visited Mauritania in May and met with IRA members. According to the experts, there were credible indications that IRA members were tortured while in detention, family members and supporters of the accused were attacked by the police when they tried to attend the trial and there were procedural irregularities in the court proceedings. “We are concerned that the IRA has also been targeted by the Government as a reprisal because its members met with the Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights during his country visit,” said the experts. The special rapporteurs further pointed out that the conviction of the activists fits a pattern of crackdown on dissent by the ruling party in a country in which one ethnic minority dominates the two other major ethnic groups.While the date for an appeal will be set later this week by the Appeals Court in Nouadhibou, its procedural irregularities seem to have persisted over the appeal phase. The jailed IRA members were transferred on 28 September from the capital Nouakchott to a detention centre in Zouérate, about 700 kilometres away and 17 hours by car from Nouadhibou, according to the news release. “There seems to be no legal basis or justification for the transfer of the detainees,” the experts underlined, adding that “this is yet another indication that these legal proceedings are politically motivated and intended to suffocate groups and individuals that promote human rights and oppose Government policies.”Therefore, the experts urged the authorities to ensure that the activists be transferred back to Nouakchott and afforded “a fair hearing by a competent, independent and impartial court in accordance with international human rights law.” Moreover, the experts expressed concern about the serious health conditions of some detainees, reiterating Mauritania’s obligation to protect their right to health and provide them with the urgent and adequate medical care needed, regardless of their legal status. “It is vital to ensure that human rights defenders can exercise their human rights and fundamental freedoms free from intimidation or fear of reprisals. Anti-slavery activism cannot be a crime,” the experts stressed.Independent Experts and Special Rapporteurs, are appointed by the UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work.
With a national TV audience, intensive medical examinations and the unfamiliarity of being on the road, the NFL Scouting Combine can be a nerve-racking experience. That’s why Ohio State’s Pro Day on Friday was such a welcomed relief for former Buckeyes looking to break into the pro ranks and hear their names called at the NFL Draft during the last weekend of April. “I think it’s a lot better. You’re in the place you’ve been training for your whole career, so I think it puts you a little more at ease,” offensive lineman Justin Boren said. “Combine — all the cameras, so many people — it’s nice working out here.” The pre-draft process is an arduous one of being constantly evaluated in nearly every way imaginable, from on-field positional drills to personal interviews that gauge players’ personalities and character. A school’s Pro Day represents the end to the constant needling of prospects until NFL teams invite players to their facilities to have private workouts just prior to the draft. Wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher expressed relief that the Combine and his Pro Day were over and likened the process to something everyone looking for a job has to go through after college. “It’s a big job interview,” he said. “Not many of them are fun but they’re necessary evils, but it’s to get to do what you really want to do.” Sanzenbacher was one of the big winners of Pro Day, reducing his time in the 40-yard dash to 4.48 seconds on Friday from 4.59 at the Combine. “You haven’t been poked and prodded by doctors for three days so I mean, it felt good. It felt better,” he said. Sanzenbacher said he has no idea where he will get drafted come late April. He said teams will likely question his slight build, but he proved a lot by running a sub-4.5 40-yard dash. He hopes that his solid career and game film at OSU will be enough for scouts to form a solid impression of the Buckeyes’ 2010 MVP. Buckeye coach Jim Tressel was in attendance and watched his former players participate in drills from afar. It was announced last Tuesday by the school that Tressel would be suspended for the first two games of next season for allegedly violating the school’s compliance policy and NCAA Bylaw 10.1 by not reporting e-mails he received last April from local attorney and former Buckeye Christopher Cicero, who indicated that Terrelle Pryor and DeVier Posey had sold OSU memorabilia to Eddie Rife, the owner of Fine Line Ink tattoo parlor. Other performances on Pro Day that helped players’ draft stock came from linebackers Ross Homan and Brian Rolle, defensive lineman Dexter Larimore, Boren, defensive backs Devon Torrence and Jermale Hines and running back Brandon Saine. Homan improved his time in the 40 to 4.6 seconds from 4.68 at the Combine, Torrence improved to 4.5 seconds from 4.68, Hines to 4.57 seconds from 4.68 and Saine to 4.4 seconds from 4.43. One of OSU’s most interesting draft prospects is Rolle, who is considered undersized for an NFL linebacker and might be asked to make a position change to safety. The four-year letterman has plenty of solid game film to go with his decorated career as middle linebacker for the Buckeyes. He won four Big Ten Player of the Week awards and was selected by coaches for the Randy Gradishar Award for outstanding linebacker. Weighing 230 pounds, 12 pounds more than his playing weight his senior year, Rolle said he would play wherever he was needed and participated in position drills at both linebacker and, for the first time Friday, defensive back. “It’s not really hard because I’ve heard ‘You’re short’ my whole life. It is what it is. God wanted me to be 5-foot-9 and 7/8 for a reason,” Rolle said. “I’m not going to shy away from playing linebacker just because somebody says I can’t do it. I’m going to compete and work hard at what I’m good at. When a team looks at me as a safety, I’m willing to do it.” Despite being undersized by traditional standards, Rolle’s 4.51 in the 40 proves that he’s fast enough to be a safety. At the Combine, he put up 28 reps of 225 pounds. Only Homan (32) and Boston College’s Mark Herzlich (29) did more reps as linebackers. Rolle said the biggest difference between linebacker and defensive back is the pack pedal used to drop into coverage. He mentioned that linebackers at OSU would sometimes get into a “lazy backpedal,” but that his athleticism would show teams he’s more than capable of learning how to drop into coverage. In the NFL, many non-starters are asked to play special teams — an area that seemed to excite Rolle more than playing defense. “That’s the first thing they ask, ‘Are you willing to play special teams?’ I love special teams. I don’t feel like there’s nothing more (fun) to do,” he said. “It’s great to play defense, great to play offense. Special teams, you get to set the tone of games … or change the momentum of a game … that’s something that at the next level, I think can really help me out.” Homan is one of the most sure-fire picks in this year’s draft of the Buckeyes coming out. Both his 40 time of 4.6 and his performance in the bench press at the Combine ranked highly for his position. He’s added 13 pounds of muscle since the season ended and is up to 240 pounds. “They say they evaluate you on 90 percent of your game film and 10 percent of your combine, so I’m happy with that because I think my game film speaks for itself,” Homan said. Homan was a three-year starter, first-team All-Big Ten performer, Sports Illustrated honorable mention All-America and academic All-Big Ten. He amassed 287 tackles (17 for loss) in 54 games as a Buckeye. He also has the outstanding pedigree NFL executives associate with linebackers from OSU, something Homan attributes to his position coach. “Luke Fickell is one of the best coaches, I believe, in college football,” Homan said. Hines is another Buckeye in flux when it comes to a position at the next level. He played the “star” position at OSU, which is a hybrid of safety and linebacker. The four-year letterman with three career interceptions participated in drills for both defensive back and linebacker on Friday. Aside from improving his 40 time to 4.57 seconds at his Pro Day from 4.68 at the Combine, Hines broad-jumped 9-feet 6-inches. He said he thought he played well at both safety positions as a Buckeye but only had one regret. “The only thing I wanted more of during my college career was people to take more shots at me … throw the ball at me more. … Every time I’m in the middle of the field it’s a slant or a curl or something like that,” Hines said. Larimore and offensive lineman Bryant Browning weren’t invited to the Combine, but were excited to workout for scouts for the first time since ending their college careers. For a defensive tackle, Larimore ran an impressive 4.97 in the 40 and bench pressed 225 pounds 32 times. Browning participated only in position drills because he said he tweaked his hamstring last week. He said he will participate with defensive lineman Cameron Heyward during Heyward’s personal Pro Day on March 30. Heyward injured his elbow in the Sugar Bowl win against Arkansas and subsequently needed Tommy John surgery to repair a tendon in his elbow. He was present at Pro Day, but didn’t work out. He’s been a regular at the team’s 6 a.m. workouts all last week and, prior to his injury, was considered a first-round pick. Defensive back Chimdi Chekwa ran a speedy 4.4 at the Combine and decided that was enough. All he did at the Pro Day was participate in positional drills. Former Buckeyes James Laurinaitis of the St. Louis Rams and Malcolm Jenkins of the New Orleans Saints were in attendance. Representatives for 29 of the NFL’s 32 teams were at OSU’s Pro Day — only the Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals did not have anyone in attendance.
I don’t know anyone who manages to send more than 1,000 text messages every month, so a plan that offers that limit for a reduced price over the unlimited plan is perfect. If you are on AT&T though, that option is about to disappear.AT&T has decided to update its messaging options and on August 21st its $10 Messaging 1000 plan, which gives you 1,000 text messages a month, will be retired. The only option then available is the Messaging Unlimited plan which doubles the price to $20. Current customers taking advantage of the Messaging 1000 plan can relax for a while though, as AT&T is allowing you to continue using it for the remainder of your contract.Unless you want to pay 20 cents per message new customers or new contracts will have to start paying that extra $10. Those already using the Family Unlimited Plan will remain at the $30 for unlimited text messages.AT&T’s reasoning for this is that unlimited texting offers better value and the “vast majority” of messaging customers opt for unlimited anyway. But that’s not the point is it? The amount of customers AT&T has on its books means even a minority of users accounts for thousands of people that will be forced to start paying more for their messaging sooner or later. Chances are quite a few of them will look to other networks for a better deal.Checking on Verizon Wireless there is the option to pay $10 for messaging on a single-line plan, but that gets you just 500 messages. Family SharePlans include the same 500 for $10, but also includes unlimited mobile to mobile messaging. Unlimited messaging costs the same as AT&T at $20, and on prepaid plans that’s the only option.via Engadget
WebOS : HP souhaite en faire un meilleur système qu’iOS et AndroidHP semble avoir enfin une vision pour son système d’exploitation. La société a réaffirmé sa volonté d’en faire un produit innovant, en s’appuyant cette fois sur les compétences de développeurs indépendants.Pour HP, passer WebOS en open source et en publier le code source a été la meilleure décision à prendre pour le futur de son système d’exploitation mobile. Son PDG, Meg Whitman affirme même à son sujet qu’HP “allait bâtir un nouveau projet” avec les développeurs participant de par le monde à l’évolution de WebOS. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Nous allons créer un nouvel OS qui aura d’énormes avantages sur iOS, qui est un système fermé, et sur Android qui est extrêmement fragmenté et risque d’être finalement plus fermé avec l’acquisition de Motorola Mobility par Google”, explique Meg Whitman. HP veut donc se situer à mi-chemin entre l’ouverture au développement et à la personnalisation de l’OS, en gardant un œil sur son produit. D’ailleurs, la feuille de route établie et publiée récemment, qui donne une première version exploitable publiée en septembre 2012, confirme qu’HP souhaite encore investir sur WebOS.Mais quels produits pourront accueillir l’ancienne solution de Palm ? Car HP, après les ventes catastrophiques de la TouchPad ou des smartphones Palm Pre, a pour le moment fermé la porte à une division mobile. L’entreprise souhaite t-elle retenter sa chance dans le domaine extrêmement concurrentiel des appareils nomades ? Pour le moment, rien n’est évoqué du côté du constructeur qui préfère axer ses efforts sur la reconstruction d’un produit qui avait pourtant nombre de points positifs face à ses rivaux d’Apple et de Google.Le 7 février 2012 à 16:15 • Maxime Lambert
OVNI : le Royaume-Uni a fermé son bureau dédié aux objets volants non-identifiésSelon des documents officiels du ministère britannique de la Défense, le bureau d’études des ovnis (objet volant non identifié) a été fermé en 2009 en considérant que ceux-ci n’existaient probablement pas. C’était il y a près de 4 ans mais l’information vient tout juste d’être révélé par des documents confidentiels du ministère de la Défense britannique. Rendus publics vendredi, ceux-ci révèlent que le gouvernement a fermé en 2009 le bureau d’études des ovnis (objet volant non identifié) en considérant qu’ils n’existaient probablement pas et ne présentaient donc aucune menace pour la sécurité.À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembre “Toutes les observations d’ovnis rapportées au ministère de la Défense [en plus de 50 ans] n’ont rien révélé laissant penser qu’il y avait une présence extra-terrestre ou une menace militaire pour le Royaume-Uni”, a souligné le fonctionnaire Carl Mantell dans une note adressée au ministre de la Défense de l’époque. Chaque année entre 2000 et 2007, le ministère britannique a reçu pas moins de 150 signalements. Entre janvier et novembre 2009, toutefois, ce sont quelque 520 rapports qui y ont été envoyés. Or, pour les autorités britanniques, cette subite augmentation s’expliquait par la mode des lanternes chinoises envoyées en l’air et qui apparaissent comme des lueurs dans le ciel. Face à la recrudescence injustifiée, Carl Mantell avait donc milité en faveur de la fermeture de ce service, estimant que “le niveau de ressources attribuées” à ce bureau “a cru en réaction à une augmentation récente de signalements d’ovnis, détournant le personnel d’activités précieuses pour la défense”. C’est ainsi que, se ralliant à son avis, le gouvernement a finalement décidé de clôturer la ligne téléphonique mise à la disposition du public pour signaler tout ovni. Les archives nationales ont également publié vendredi le détails des signalements d’ovnis au cours des deux années qui ont précédé la fermeture du service, notamment autour du parlement et du site millénaire de Stonehenge, dans le sud-est de l’Angleterre, rapporte l’AFP.Le 24 juin 2013 à 15:59 • Maxime Lambert

For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Chicago | Updated: September 2 2016 2:39 pm Immature forms-eggs and larvae are immune to spraying which only kills adult mosquitoes (Source: Wikimedia Commons) Top News Adult female mosquitoes can pass the Zika virus along to their offspring US researchers said on Monday a finding that makes clear the need for pesticide programs that kill both adult mosquitoes and their eggs The findings published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene show that as with many related virusesincluding dengue and yellow fever Zika can be transmitted from female mosquitoes to their offspring Dr Robert Tesh of the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston Texas a study co-author said the fact that the virus can be passed along to mosquito offspring makes Zika harder to control “Spraying affects adults but it does not usually kill the immature forms – the eggs and larvae Spraying will reduce transmission but it may not eliminate the virus” he said WATCH VIDEO:13 Indians Have Tested Positive For Zika In Singapore Confirms Vikas Swarup Although Zika generally causes mild disease in adults it is a major threat to pregnant women because it has been shown to cause the severe birth defect known as microcephaly and other brain abnormalities The ongoing Zika outbreak was first detected last year in Brazil where it has been linked to more than 1800 cases of microcephaly and has since spread rapidly through the Americas Aedes aegypti the mosquitoes that carry Zika lay eggs in small containers of water Homeowners have been advised to dump out containers of water on their properties When the water is dumped the eggs cling in a ring around the water line where they remain dormant until the next rain when they can hatch Scientists studying Zika wanted to find out whether some of the offspring from these tropical mosquitoes might carry the virus helping to perpetuate an outbreak during dry seasons To find out researchers injected female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes raised in a laboratory with Zika They were then fed and within a week they laid eggs The team collected and cared for the eggs until they hatched into adult mosquitoes and counted the ones that carried the Zika virus They found the virus present in one out of every 290 mosquitoes tested “The ratio may sound low” Tesh said “but when you consider the number of Aedes aegypti in a tropical urban community it is likely high enough to allow some virus to persist even when infected adult mosquitoes are killed” Tesh said the next step is to show that mosquitoes are actually passing Zika to their offspring in the wild Experts fighting Zika in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami have announced aerial spraying campaigns using pesticides that kill both adult mosquitoes and mosquito larvae For homeowners in affected areas Tesh advised people to dump standing water from containers on their property and scrub them thoroughly to remove eggs and larvae They should also remove any objects from their yards that could collect water For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top
