City sues El Monte business park owner after neighbors’ gripes

first_imgEL MONTE – In an effort to end complaints between an Orchard Street business park and its neighbors, the city has filed a lawsuit against the owner who leases the industrial property. The outcome is expected to affect all the businesses there, city officials said. EL MONTE – In an effort to end complaints between an Orchard Street business park and its neighbors, the city has filed a lawsuit against the owner who leases the industrial property. The outcome is expected to affect all the businesses there, city officials said. Directed at Jackson Family Trust, the lawsuit was filed days after chemical fumes from Valet Services hospitalized nearly two dozen employees Sept. 18. Firefighters had to evacuate the building at 11312 Orchard St. and surrounding sidewalk. Neighbors’ complaints about excessive dust, fumes, traffic and noise drew the city’s attention to Valet Services, a laundry company that operates on a 24-hour schedule. It does not provide employee parking, which has exacerbated complaints, city officials said. “The city is very concerned about the impact of businesses in residential areas,” said Matt Weintraub, El Monte city spokesman. “We are committed, where feasible, to have housing and commercial mixed-use, but it must be appropriate. The current situation may not be the best use.” Neighbors expressed hope the city can eliminate Valet Services from their neighborhood. Charles Castaneda, who lives two houses away, said he has been wrangling with the city since the company moved there in 1999. “We the people are the ones that are suffering and that’s very unfair,” he said. “We live here 24-7 and they are in operation 24-7.” Moseley said the complaints and the incident in September “really is just an example where whenever industry and residents collide, there are potential problems. “The city of El Monte is committed to seeing this lawsuit through,” he said. In an increasingly complex and condensed world, “it’s important that we find the right path.” bethania.palma@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811 Ext. 2393160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Paul Gray, the attorney representing the Jackson Family Trust, would not comment because he said had not reviewed the case. Based on records and the area’s history, the city believes there should be only one light-industrial user in the area. last_img read more

Workers Return To Bedford GM Plant

first_imgThe longest General Motors strike in history is over and workers in Bedford returned to work over the weekend.United Auto Workers union voted in favor of a four-year labor deal to end the walkout.The United Auto Workers Union released a statement announcing UAW General Motors members ratified the 2019 Collective Bargaining Agreement Friday. The rank-and-file members voted 57 percent in favor of the deal, according to the union. Locally, the 703 members of UAW Local 440 voted 60 percent to 40 percent not to approve the terms of the agreement, according to union president Kevin Hutchinson.The vote ends a painful work stoppage that has lasted six weeks, costing GM nearly $2 billion in lost production and employees nearly $1 billion in lost wages.The strike by nearly 50,000 hourly GM workers started Sept. 16.It is the largest against a US business since the last GM strike 12 years ago. But that strike was over in less than three days. This strike is the longest auto industry work stoppage in more than 20 years and the longest nationwide auto strike in 50 years.The final deal would give striking workers four small wins and one major loss.Workers are guaranteed a 3 percent pay raise and a 4 percent lump-sum increase in alternating years. Employees got the same result the last time they negotiated a contract in 2015, without going on strike.GM agreed to lift the $12,000 cap on profit-sharing, so there’s no limit to the cut workers can get from GM’s profits.Right now, they each get $1,000 for every $1 billion the company earns.  The Detroit-Hamtramck factory was one of four slated for closure before the strike, it will now stay open, and GM will build electric trucks and vans there.That’s a $3 billion investment in 2,225 jobs.The company will also invest $1 billion in two other factories — one in Tennessee and another in Michigan — to build mid-size SUVs.There is now a process for temporary workers to become permanent employees after three years on the job and for newer hires to earn the full pay rate in four years instead of eight.That top wage rate was increased from about $30 to $32 per hour.The cost of workers’ health care plans, among the lowest in the nation, was left untouched.The company had announced plans to increase premiums but backed down during the strike.Permanent workers will also get an $11,000 signing bonus and temporary workers will get $4,500, basically covering the wages they lost during the strikeUnion negotiators were unable to get GM to move car production from Mexico to the Lordstown, Ohio plant, which once produced the Chevy Cruze, which was perhaps the most sensitive issue on the table.It was terrible news for the 1,400 workers who have since been laid off – several hundred of them have accepted transfers to other factories.GM officials have promised to open an electric car battery factory near the Lordstown plant. That’s not what the union wanted, though, because it would only employ a few hundred people at lower wages.last_img read more

Avoid Data Caps and Compress Your iPhone Data with Onavo

first_imgRelated Posts If you have to keep an eye on your iPhone data usage – whether it’s due to data caps or roaming fees – then you might like Onavo, a new app that will monitor and compress your data so you can use (and pay for) less data.Once you download the Onavo app and register your device, your data is routed through Ovaco’s services, which compress your data and help you track your usage, identifying for example which apps are data-download-intensive.Once installed the app runs in the background of your iPhone and automatically compresses your download data (not your streaming data, it’s worth pointing out). The app can be toggled on and off and will pause itself when you’re using a WiFi connection. You can also opt to turn off email compression so that data is ignored. Tags:#Apple#mobile#web The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology The trade-off of saving money on data here is, of course, running your data through a third-party service. Onavo does say “we take our users’ privacy very seriously,” storing the minimum amount of data – all aggregated and anonymized. Some metadata is kept to be able to generate the reports. Onavo says it doesn’t story any data and can’t read HTTPS traffic, with the exception of Exchange Mail authentication info, something that users will have to explicitly approve in order to set up.The app works on iPhones and iPads and is coming to Android soon. It’s currently free, but the startup indicates this is just a limited-time offer and it will eventually charge a fee to use the service. In the meantime, Onavo announced today that it has raised $3 million in funding from Sequora Capital and Magma Venture Partners.

Business is good, too, and today the company announced that it has acquired Network Solutions, a company with a long and complex history, for more than $400 million in cash, plus stock, debt and more. Network Solutions was, among other things, the first company to issue domain names, with the blessing of the US Defense Department and funding from the National Science Foundation. It began doing so 20 years ago next month. At that time domains were issued for free.Four years later, Network Solutions was given permission to start charging for .com and .org domains. The company charged $100 for two years and 30% of the revenue went to the National Science Foundation to create an “Internet Intellectual Infrastructure Fund.” (Which sounds awesome.) Five years after that, the company was acquired by Verisign for an amazing $21 billion.Today it’s an equity firm called General Atlantic that sold Network Solutions for hundreds of millions of dollars. General Atlantic bought control over Network Solutions in 2007 for a reported $800 million. Ouch.From the genesis of the domain name world, complete with subsidies for “national intelectual infrastructure,” to a $21 billion acquisition, to an $800 million deal to now $400 million plus – that seems like quite a fall for Network Solutions.Now it’s a property of mega-URL Web.com, where customers can buy pop-up websites, apps for the leading Walled Garden (Facebook) and a “Gorilla Online Marketing Solution”Who knows what it all means? Perhaps it means that creation of your own little corner of the Internet has fallen from grace and huge financial value, but remains a large business even if it is commodified. marshall kirkpatrick 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Netflix Still Tops in Streaming Video Selection

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Granted, your results might differ based on your own personal content selection, but the general trend is that Netflix is still the champ, but only if you count both its the streaming and DVD mailing services. All ten of our selections were available, but only four of them via streaming. Amazon and Comcast had five streaming videos out of the ten available for instant watching, and Vudu and Hulu each had four. Hulu Plus and Comcast Xfinity both have a better selection for TV series than movies, whereas Vudu is better in finding more movies. Amazon has decent coverage in both media.If you are searching for something on Justin.tv, you will quickly find out that you can’t easily find anything. If you hunt around, you might come up with a movie or TV show that someone has uploaded, but chances are this upload won’t be around for very long if it violates the show’s copyrights. Still, if you know your way around, you might be able to find popular shows that have been posted. Netflix has made a name for itself supporting a wide variety of clients and browsers, on everything from Blu-ray TVs to iOS phones and tablets. Of the services examined, Amazon was the only one missing an iOS client. What does it all cost?The fees for each service are also hard to compare with Netflix. Vudu charges per show, and there are different prices depending on the popularity and vintage of the movie. Amazon wants you to sign up for its Prime service at $79 per year, but once you do you have unlimited streaming access for the next 12 months. If you don’t want Prime, you can pay from $1 to $4 to rent the movie for up to two days, or purchase it for download. There are a host of restrictions on how long you can actually have possession for the movie too, based on our wonderful studios legal departments. Justin.tv offers both free and paid accounts that remove inline ads. And Hulu also has two pricing levels: Plus for $8 a month (the same for Netflix’ streaming component) and free. Plus adds full episodes of the TV shows that it offers along with HD quality streaming. Overall, once you leave Netflix you will find fewer choices and searching won’t be as easy to find something to watch. Netflix has a great search engine that won’t just look for movie titles but also check for actors and other principals involved in the movie itself, something the other services don’t do as well at.Plus, your collection of recommendations and previously watched content on Netflix can’t easily be exported to any other service. Finally, while all of the services provide for streaming to your Windows or Mac Web browser, not all movies are available to stream to your iPad or Tivo box.So while you might be upset about paying for two bills for your video rentals from Netflix, unless you are willing to spend more time searching for content, you are probably better off sticking with the service for the time being, at least until the others catch up with their content licenses. Or if you already have a cable TV subscription, investigate whether it offers something similar to Comcast’s Xfinity and see what their coverage is there. Ironically, that might be your best alternative to Netflix after all.NB: Thanks to Maia Rowland who provided the research for this article. As Netflix begins the process of spinning out its streaming business from its traditional DVD rentals, I wanted to examine the alternative streaming services that are currently available. I looked at Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, Vudu.com and Justin.tv. Added to this mix is what is available on Comcast’s Xfinity service to just show what can be found from a typical cable TV company. (Of course, if you don’t live in a Comcast service area, you can’t subscribe to their streaming service online.) I choose five random movies and five TV series to see what was available on each service. #video-comparison-matrix{font-family: Arial, sans-serif;background-color: #CCC;line-height: 1em !important;width: 610px;border-spacing: 1px;text-align: center;}#video-comparison-matrix td{width: 14.286%;}#video-comparison-matrix thead td{font-size: 1em;font-weight: bold;background-color: #b80103;color: #FFF;padding: 5px;}#video-comparison-matrix td.s3, #video-comparison-matrix td.s4{font-size: 0.8em;padding: 5px;}#video-comparison-matrix td.s3{background-color: #555;font-weight: bold;color: #FFF;text-align: left;}#video-comparison-matrix td.s4{background-color: #FFF;}#video-comparison-matrix tr:nth-child(2n) td{background-color: #EFEFEF;}#video-comparison-matrix tr:nth-child(2n) td.s3 { background-color: #444; } Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting david strom Tags:#Analysis#NYT#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

For the First Time, TV’s Biggest Live Event Will Be Streamed to Your Phone

first_img4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Related Posts 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… Tags:#news#television#web center_img When it comes to watching television without the aid of a cable subscription or rabbit ears, the Web is pretty accommodating these days. Most popular shows stream new episodes within 24 hours and even many live television events can be streamed online. One of the biggest deal killers for would-be “cord cutters,” however has always been live sports. If you’re a huge football fan, for example, there’s no way around it: you need TV the old fashioned way. That’s still largely the case, but watching the year’s biggest sporting event via the Internet just got a whole lot easier. The Super Bowl, which is the most-watched television broadcast in the United States, will be streamed live to computers and smartphones, the NFL announced today. NBC and the NFL will both stream a high-definition quality broadcast of the game online with alternative camera angles, DVR-style controls and other interactive features. In addition to being accessible on the desktop Web, the stream will be available via Verizon’s NFL Mobile app, which is available on both iOS and Android. It’s not the first sporting event to be streamed live, but its certainly the biggest. If the networks ever wanted an opportunity to give large-scale live streaming a test run, this would be a pretty good one. The Super Bowl attracts over 100 million viewers, most of whom will have no problem sitting around the television set per usual to watch the game. If anything, making it available online will expand the audience and may even offer the networks some interesting viewership statistics and a few takeaways about the future of television. 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout john paul titlowlast_img read more

White House Rally to Promote Science Education

first_imgOn Thursday the White House will host the third public event in an ongoing campaign to encourage the private sector to invest in precollege science and math education. The initiative, dubbed Educate to Innovate, showcases new and ongoing activities by companies, foundations, and professional organizations to train better teachers, raise student performance, and increase interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education. Last fall’s version, for example, launched National Lab Day, a Web site to link up teachers and scientists and engineers who want to volunteer in the classroom. This week’s event is expected to showcase a new report on K–12 STEM education by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.last_img read more

Scientists Lobby Three E.U. Presidents to Prevent Budget Cuts

first_img Scientists made their voices heard at the highest levels in Europe today. A delegation led by two Nobel laureates held sequential meetings with the European Union’s three presidents—European Parliament President Martin Schulz, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, and European Commission President José Manuel Barroso—to lobby them to spare research funding from looming cuts in the European Union’s budget. Van Rompuy will be part of a summit next week where the heads of the 27 E.U. member countries are supposed to hammer out a compromise on the union’s overall budget for 2014 through 2020. Because of the ongoing economic crisis, the €1 trillion budget proposed by the European Commission is likely to be slashed. But a growing chorus of scientists and research organizations has been arguing that research funding should be protected from cuts, because it offers a path out of the crisis and a way to strengthen the European Union’s economy in the long term. Today’s delegation was led by Nobel laureates Tim Hunt and Jules Hoffmann, two of the organizers of an open letter published in more than a dozen European newspapers last month. The letter warned that if severe cuts happen, “we risk losing a generation of talented scientists just when Europe needs them most.” The laureates presented the letter to the three leaders, along with an online petition in support of the letter that gathered more than 130,000 signatures. Hunt and Hoffmann were joined by Helga Nowotny, president of the European Research Council (ERC), which is funded by the European Union and gives grants to many of Europe’s top basic researchers. Also present were organizers of the petition, Maria Leptin and Wolfgang Eppenschwandtner of the Initiative for Science in Europe, and Leif Schröder of the Young Academy of Europe.

Van Rompuy’s support may matter most in the short term, because the European Council—the body representing the governments of the member states—has the most power over spending. The researchers are particularly worried that the proposed €80 billion budget for the Horizon 2020 program, which will fund basic and applied research during the 7-year budget period, will receive a disproportionate share of cuts. In the last round of budget negotiations in 2006, officials cut spending on agriculture, infrastructure, and economic development by 10% from proposed levels, but slashed research by 30%. “I don’t think anyone wants to see the research budget cut,” Hunt says, “but it’s squeezed” between two much larger categories of E.U. funding, agriculture subsidies and so-called cohesion funding, which supports infrastructure and development in the European Union’s poorer regions. The researchers’ plea has also garnered support from some politicians at the national level. Germany’s research and education minister, Annette Schavan, told a meeting in Berlin this month that she would “personally champion” the cause of research funding. German Chancellor Angela Merkel supports some cuts to the proposed overall budget, but her proposals are not as severe as those from leaders of Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. In fact, it is the United Kingdom that researchers may have to worry about most, says Hunt, who is British. Although the United Kingdom receives a disproportionate share of E.U. research funds—it hosts by far the most ERC grant recipients—general skepticism about the European Union tends to color most British politicians’ views of E.U. research funding as well, he says. However, some countries calling for the most austerity also advocate spending more on research. Sweden, for example, favors overall cuts of more than €150 billion but wants a bigger proportion of the E.U. budget spent on research and innovation. “Cutting the budget doesn’t mean that you can’t also reform the budget,” says Daniel Wennick of the business group the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise. The Swedes say that the European Union should instead trim its generous agricultural subsidies, but France, the biggest beneficiary of the farm subsidies, is dead set against deeper cuts. Many observers predict that Europe’s leaders will fail to reach a deal at the summit next week, and a final decision between member countries, Parliament, and the commission won’t come until summer 2013 at the earliest.

ISL 2015: Nicolas Anelka likely to quit after Mumbai City FC’s poor run

first_imgFollowing his team’s poor run in the second season of the Indian Super League (ISL), which has left them with almost no chance to qualify for the semi-finals, Mumbai City FC marque-player-cum-manager Nicolas Anelka admitted that he might not return to the tournament’s next season in 2016.The hopes of making it to the semis were all but shattered for hosts Mumbai after they played out a 1-1 draw against visitors Kerala Blasters FC  on Thursday.Striker Antonio German scored the equaliser (89th minute) for Kerala, much to the surprise of the home crowd, after Spanish midfielder Juan Aguilera opened the scoring (25th) for the hosts.Also read: Kerala, Mumbai lose chances to qualify for the semifinals “Our target was to qualify for the semis this season and as we are not in a position to qualify. So I don’t think if I will return to ISL next season. But you have to speak to the owners for details about this,” Anelka said at the post-match press conference here.With the draw, Mumbai are struggling in the seventh position in the standings with 13 points from 12 games, having won three, drawn four and lost five.After being a player in season 1 for Mumbai, the French footballer took an added responsibility this season to manage the side, but with the current season coming to the end in a few days’ time, the 36-year-old believes it was a tough and difficult job for him altogether in ISL 2.”It was a difficult job for me this season. I don’t want to blame anyone else for this. It is hard when you pick fingers at anyone. We are all responsible for the loss,” he said.advertisementThe former Chelsea star striker pointed out that despite putting in their best effort in the pre-season, the team failed to perform and injuries were one of the main factors.”We can’t win by winning just a few matches. Minimum five to six matches must be won. We worked hard in the pre-season but couldn’t deliver in the matches. This time we had a talented squad but we couldn’t do well,” Anelka said.Mumbai, after drawing their last match at home, will travel to Chennai to face Chennaiyin FC on December 1.last_img read more

I saw his comments and he didn’t exactly dismiss it.”He’s got a long-term contract – well done Daniel Levy. It would cost Madrid a huge amount of money to sign Pochettino, to break that contract.”But I think if they offer Spurs £50 million and he wanted to go, stranger things have happened in football.”Pochettino has provided mixed messages when quizzed on his links to Madrid , with claims that he is happy in north London after penning fresh terms countered by admittance that anything can happen in the future.

When it pays to be an un-hip marketer

first_imgAre you uncool and old school? I am, apparently – at least my teenage daughter tells me so.The good news is, sometimes it pays to be un-hip. Especially if you work in marketing. I was reminded of this by Dorie Clark’s recent piece in the Harvard Business Review Blog. As she notes, sometimes the pursuit of shiny new things leads us away from basic marketing principles that work best.She says, ask yourself:1. What is everyone else doing — and how can I do the opposite? Being trendy makes you less of a standout. If every other charity is sending out calendars to thank supporters, buck the trend and give donors personal calls, for example. If everyone is zigging, zag.2. What worked in the past that’s been abandoned — and why? Some old ideas should not come back. Like the below fashion statement which I first saw via Jeffrey Forster. But we often stop effective marketing programs because staff change, people find it dull or someone drops the ball. Take a tour of your past and brush the dust off what worked before. It might work well again.3. What circumstances have changed that might allow for new opportunities? Are there old ideas whose time has come?I’m with Dorie Clark. It’s not a bad thing to eschew the shiny and embrace the dusty. Especially if it’s marketing gold. But not if it’s double denim.last_img read more

3 tips for being calmer and more creative

first_imgHBR has a nice post this week on quieting your mind – and recharging it. You can check out the whole article here, and I’ve posted a quick summary. Try one or all of these three practices:1. Mini-meditation: For 10 minutes on public transportation each morning, close your eyes and imagine a relaxing scene like a tree or waterfall. Try to focus only on that. If you drive to work, arrive 10 minutes early and do this in the parking lot. Says author Matthew May, “People who meditate show more gray matter in certain regions of the brain, show stronger connections between brain regions and show less age-related brain atrophy.” Sounds like a good reason to try this!2. Pulsing: Take breaks between stretches of 90 minutes of work. You just spent a lot of energy – now recharge for five minutes by doodling, listening to music or taking a brief stroll.3. Daydream walks: Find 20 minutes or so to let your mind wander. A lunchtime walk or morning jog are good times to try. Do not think about work but rather something you like to imagine, like a dream trip. You’re taking care of your creative brain – and the benefits will extend to all of your life.last_img read more

Recognizing Child Marriage as a Maternal and Women’s Health Issue

first_imgPosted on April 10, 2017September 15, 2017By: Yvette Efevbera, Doctoral Candidate, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public HealthClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Fatimatah* was forced into marriage by her family at the age of 16. She described not wanting to marry: “I told him, ‘No, I do not love you, and I do not want that this is my husband. For now, I am going to pursue my studies, and even if I am going to marry, it is not with you. I do not love you.’”But she was already three years older than the age at which her sister was married, and her family said she had no choice. Fatimatah ran away from home, hid at neighbors’ houses and tried to finish her schooling, but was eventually forced to return home, where her family had already celebrated the traditional marriage.Married life for Fatimatah was physically and emotionally painful. Her husband was poor, and she was forced to find ways to earn money for her own livelihood; she still has scars on her head from carrying buckets of water and candies to sell over four miles a day. Her husband regularly beat her and threw objects at her, causing chronic back pain, headaches and sinus infections. Fatimatah suffered from three miscarriages that went untreated and is now told she cannot have children. She described her ailing physical health and overall wellbeing as consequences of her marriage.Unfortunately, Fatimatah’s story is not hers alone. Globally, one in nine girls marries before age 15, and about one in three marries before age 18. The majority of these child marriages occur in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. In Guinea, a West African country recently devastated by the Ebola epidemic, more than 50% of girls marry early, despite that the legal minimum age of consent for marriage in Guinea is 18 years old.As Fatimatah’s case illustrates, early marriage puts young girls at risk of developing numerous negative maternal and reproductive health outcomes including early pregnancy, reduced contraceptive use and poor birth spacing. Studies have also found poorer maternal health-seeking behaviors among child brides, such as fewer antenatal visits and lower odds of deliveries with skilled birth attendants.Women who marry early may also have lower decision-making power and autonomy in the household, another pathway through which early marriage affects health. Like Fatimatah, young brides may be at increased risk of experiencing domestic violence. One study found that women who married before the age of 18 in India were almost twice as likely to have reported ever experiencing intimate partner violence in their married lives than those who married as adults. In addition to physical consequences, these interactions directly led to stress and depression, as described by Fatimatah, ultimately affecting socioemotional wellbeing.Risk factors for early marriage, as well as poorer maternal health outcomes, may be linked to education and poverty. In the African context, early marriage has accounted for up to 28% of school dropouts in some countries. Girls with primary education or no education are more likely to marry early compared to girls with secondary education, and secondary school attainment has been documented to be disrupted by the marriage, as illustrated by Fatimatah’s case. When girls are not able to complete higher levels of education, their opportunities to find employment and earn income are reduced. Lower income and education may affect maternal knowledge, behavior and accessibility to resources. Moreover, a mother’s education not only affects her own health, but also that of her children. Recent evidence from across sub-Saharan Africa illustrates that through reduced wealth and education, early marriage negatively affects early childhood development, creating an intergenerational cycle.When asked to share any positive experiences from her marriage, Fatimatah responded, “Yes, there were positive things: suffering. The suffering that I suffered there. It is that which gave me the courage to become what I would be tomorrow, or what I am today.”In some ways, her story might be considered a success. Her parents, fearing for her life, removed her from her marital home after five years. Her knack for entrepreneurship and her perseverance to study enabled her to make enough money to complete secondary school, national exams and eventually university. She was also able to start her own small organization and is now in a role that allows her to guide and council other young women.So what we can learn from Fatimatah’s experience? Child marriage cannot be viewed or treated exclusively as a human rights issue. The public health community must also address it from the perspective of maternal and women’s health.*Name changed to protect the identity of the participant. **Fatimatah’s interview is part of a larger qualitative study on child marriage, health and wellbeing in Guinea led by Yvette Efevbera. Most sincere thank you to Fatimatah for sharing her experiences, to numerous Guinean friends and colleagues who supported and encouraged this research and to Dr. Paul Farmer, Prof. Jacqueline Bhabha and Dr. Günther Fink for academic advising.—Access resources related to global adolescent sexual and reproductive health.Learn more about child marriage from UNFPA, UNICEF and the World Health Organization.Share this: ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more

Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Barca head coach Valverde, though, insisted his team selections are purely tactical.”What do you want me to say?” Valverde told reporters when asked about Rakitic.”Last year he was playing and Nelson [Semedo] was on the bench. The other day he played well and we stuck with the same team, with Sergi Roberto in midfield. We have a lot to choose from.”It’s a great question, but it could be about anyone. The market does not influence my decisions at all. If I think he’ll come in handy for a game, I’ll play him. I choose depending on the game.”Barca went behind just seven minutes in thanks to Roberto Torres’ strike, but 16-year-old Ansu Fati and Arthur put the visitors 2-1 up in the second half.However, Torres’ 81st-minute penalty following a Gerard Pique handball secured a draw for Osasuna at El Sadar to leave Barca with just four points from their first three games of the season, their lowest such return since 2008-09.”We were not good in the first half but we were good in the second half, we had them pinned back,” Valverde said.”When we got in front, we had the chance to extend our lead, but there was an absurd moment, a penalty, and it’s a shame because we had the game there to be won and we should have killed it off.”It’s about imposing ourselves on the opposition. The opponents always press us because it’s one of the games of the year for them. You have to know how to control that.”Valverde was delighted with the impact of Fati, who became Barca’s youngest La Liga goalscorer when he buried a header from Carles Perez’s cross just six minutes after his introduction.”He’s a forward who takes on the opposition, and he’s a good finisher, as he showed with the goal,” Valverde said.”We thought we lacked a spark when we brought him on.”He’s a young player, but there are a lot of good things about them: dribbling, confidence, forcing the opposition back. He came on when we were losing, at a tough ground, and he responded well.”last_img read more

There’s a lot of work to do here with the team.”We think the team can continue to improve, and until I’m told otherwise, 2022 is my contract, and that’s it.”England will continue their bid to qualify for Euro 2020 with upcoming games against Czech Republic and Bulgaria with Southgate’s side currently top of Group A and with a game in hand. Meanwhile, Tottenham’s horror week continued on Saturday as they lost 3-0 to Brighton after being hammered 7-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Despite those results, Pochettino stressed he’s not concerned about his job and won’t be changing his football philosophy anytime soon. “No, I am not worried, what worries me is life, not football,” Pochettino said.”I don’t want you to take it the wrong way, what scares me is life, not football. Football is to be strong and be brave and take decisions and to show your face when things are not good.”That is what we are going to do, face the negative things and try to work hard to change this dynamic.

Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career The approach came as something of a surprise to a man who had previously enjoyed seven memorable years with Dortmund – a spell which included two title triumphs.In a new biography about Watzke called ‘Real Love: A life with BVB’, Klopp says of a call he took in May 2018: “At some point my phone rang while I was on the plane and Aki was on it: ‘Jurgen, you have to come back’. I laughed, I thought he was kidding.“’Are you stupid, have you been drinking? How do you get that idea, I have a few more years in Liverpool’.“I do not know how serious he was at that moment, but I realised that he wanted me to be more willing to respond.”Jurgen Klopp Liverpool 2019-20Watzke admits that he always expected Klopp to knock back his advances, with a coach who would go on to claim Champions League glory with Liverpool in 2018-19 tied to a deal with the Reds through to 2022.“I knew that Jurgen would say no and that he would fulfil his contract in Liverpool,” Watzke said. “But if you want to go in a new direction, and we had to hit a new path at BVB at that point, then I had to at least ask Jurgen if it was a possibility.“I did not expect it at all, but I would never have forgiven myself had I not at least asked him at that moment.”While Klopp politely declined at that point in time, no door has been closed to Dortmund.There is still plenty for the 52-year-old to achieve in England, as he sets his sights on a Premier League crown, but he has hinted at walking away when his current deal comes to a close.If his services were then required by Dortmund at some stage, an emotional return to Signal Iduna Park could be made.“As a rescuer at a time of need, if the club really needs my help, why should I not do it?” Klopp said.“It’s very nice that I even have the opportunity. But I do not think it’s very likely to happen.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

So You Think Your Drinking Water is Clean Think Again

first_img The Mitte Water Filter is (Almost) Ready to Provide the Best Damn Water Ever 10 Top Shelf Vodka Brands that are Actually Worth a Damn Rum 101: An Introduction to the Different Types of Rum and How They’re Made We’re not about to drink directly from a backcountry stream without a legit water purifier. What do you think we are? Dummies? Increasingly, we need to adopt this same ‘duh’ mindset to our tap water, which likely contains dangerous chemicals, bacteria, heavy metals, and microplastics— which are super-fine pieces of plastic we ingest daily that are threatening our health in a major way.Yup, microplastics are even in 90 percent of bottled water.Two years ago, when a state of emergency was issued in Flint, Michigan, the reality that our drinking water could have anything from Coliform bacteria to lead in it struck an alarming chord. But tap water looks so clean… and my fridge has a filter in it… and aren’t there massive water treatment facilities dedicated to stripping contaminants and parasites before water gets to our glasses?The reality is that most of us have no idea what chemicals are actually in our water, and how we can realistically go about making the water we do have as safe as possible to consume.The Manual sat down with the Managing Director and Head of Brand at LifeStraw, Alison Hill and Tara Lundy— two brilliant leaders in the filtration category who set the record straight on chemicals, the growing emergency of contaminated tap water, and how we can drink the cleanest, healthiest H2O possible.So, how bad is our water in the USA?LifeStraw knows bad water. Their filtration solutions and technology have been designed to deal with the world’s absolute worst water sources in Africa and the backcountry.“We saw that these issues were impacting US households,” Hill says. “After the Flint water crisis, researchers started looking at what was in our water and in recent years found that between 9-45 million Americans get their drinking water from a source that is in violation of the Safe Drinking Water Act.”That means everything from microplastics to Chromium-6 (the ‘Erin Brockovich’ chemical), Chromium-3, lead, bacteria, parasites, and other heavy metals are hiding in plain sight. Mmm… refreshing?“There are a number of contaminants infecting people’s tap water, and a lot of cases,” adds Lundy. Go ahead and Google “boil advisory” and you’ll find a rash of news articles from around the country relating to communities’ drinking water being contaminated with pathogens (i.e. bacteria and viruses that cause disease). “[These] advisories may last for days or weeks, and it’s increasingly a problem as we see more hurricanes and natural disasters,” Lundy says.How does water get infected?Microplastics, heavy metals, and bacteria can enter our drinking water a number of ways. While microplastics leech from the jackets we throw in the laundry into groundwater sources, agricultural runoff drains pesticides into that same source, and heavy metals and other contaminants leach from the actual water systems in houses and municipalities. This was partially the case in Flint, where miles upon miles of iron, copper, and lead pipes had been corroded.America’s overarching water infrastructure is rife with challenges that will likely result in increased emergencies and water safety issues in the coming years, says expert water correspondent Codi Kozacek.Is our water making us sick?“Parasites lead to gastrointestinal problems, lead has an impact on childhood development, and early data suggests exposure to levels of chromium leads to different kinds of cancers and neurological disorders,” says Lundy. “Exposure to any one of thousands of contaminants can lead to one of thousands of problems, but we don’t know everything yet.”The true health impact of contaminated water is still under scrutiny, but what we can say for a fact is that an issue like microplastics being pervasive across all our water sources is so alarming (our contamination rate is freaking 94 percent) the World Health Organization launched an emergency initiative task force to look at the impact, says Lundy and Hill.Guess we’ll be drinking sparkling tequila water in the meantime.How do we get contaminants out, like, today? … and is my dinky filter doing anything?Water treatment facilities are set up to address large contaminants, “and they do it with chlorine,” says Hill. Lundy chimes in that this is the main way municipalities improve their water, and in some areas, you can fill a glass of water from the tap and it will smell like a pool.Odds are, the water filter you’re using at home is primarily working to remove chlorine. “A lot of refrigerators have built-in filters, so they’re better than the tap, but these baseline filtration products are concerned with improving taste and they do that by removing chlorine,” says Hill.Removing bad bacteria and heavy metals take more muscle. Unfortunately, much of the filtration category has been busy innovating their water pitcher designs and colorways instead of looking at core technology upgrades. For that reason, LifeStraw decided to release their own in-home water purifier this spring. (and it’s aesthetically amazing as well as efficient.)LifeStraw’s in-home purifier will include their hollow fiber membrane that uses microscopic pores to trap contaminants so only water can pass through. Even if you never change the filter (we’ll get to that bad habit in a hot second), bacteria will never be allowed through, the flow rate will just get very low.So, what in-home filter do I use?Since water quality testing is extremely difficult given its cost and scarcity (LifeStraw found only 3 external labs globally that test for microplastics, for instance), save your money on “dissolved solids” water tests and invest in a comprehensive home filter.Research the product you’re going to use and check that the company has been certified and tested against a set of standards related to health impact (not just taste). For instance, LifeStraw’s home purifier performs to NSF standards.Pick a filter with “substantial claims,” Hill says. LifeStraw’s market research found that while 80-percent of households have a filter, only 30-percent believe it works. Market sales data proved filters with smaller claims had less repurchase filter sales, meaning the more you respect what nasty gunk your filter is getting out, the more you’ll replace on time.That being said… replace the damn filter every 2 months or 150 liters (unless the product recommends sooner).Buy a bundle pack of replacement filters to have on-hand.Shop Lifestraw Products How to Make a Whiskey Sour How to Drink Absinthe and Live to Tell the Tale Editors’ Recommendations last_img read more

5 of the Most Expensive Rums on the Planet

first_imgWhen you think of rum, what comes to mind first? Bloodthirsty pirates? A Coca-Cola-based drink you slurped back on spring break? Or maybe you think of a refined, complex spirit deserving of slow slips and careful consideration? If the latter, then you, sir or madam, must be a true connoisseur of exquisite rum, the kind of rum for which you would expect to pay, say $50,000 per bottle, no? Too much? How about just $2,600, then?You can get a fine bottle of rum for about $50 and a truly great bottle for a little under $100. But to dabble in the best rums on the planet — or at least the most expensive — you’re going to need to add a zero or two. Or three. Maybe overly expensive rum was the reason pirates stole things instead of paying for them? Or maybe they were just kind of jerks.New Grove Double Cask Moscatel Finish Rum – $95You might not think of the island of Mauritius when you think of great rum regions (though you may think of the dodo, the famously not-so-bright and very much extinct flightless bird once native to the land), but this tiny republic, situated in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar, produces some world-class liquor. New Grove has been producing rum since 1838, and they offer more than a dozen spirits, including affordable spiced rums, unique liqueurs made with rum and ingredients like honey, vanilla, or coffee, and their line of pricier, rarer rums like the Double Cask Moscatel Finish Rum, which is partially aged in wine barrels.Zafra 30-Year-Old Rum – $200The Zafra rum distillery takes its name from the Spanish word for the process of harvesting sugar cane, the zafra. This rum is produced in Panama and then aged for three decades in bourbon barrels, taking on a deep, rich hue and notes of vanilla, fruit, and oak from the wood. It is sumptuous on its own, but the distillers from Zafra fully encourage its use in cocktails as well, including the Classic Daiquiri and the Mojito. And if $200 is more than you want to spend on a 30-year-old rum, how about $52 on Zafra’s other rum, which is only aged for 21 years?Black Tot British Royal Naval Rum – $850The name of this deep, dark, rum comes from a dark day indeed: on July 31, 1970, the British Royal Navy officially ended the daily rum ration issued to its sailors. The date came to be called Black Tot Day. This spirit was produced in homage to the rum the sailors used to get to help brace them for the hard work called for by life at sea, though the seaman’s wages probably wouldn’t have covered more than a dram or two. Bold notes of dark berries, dark chocolate, oak, and coffee pervade the aroma and palate of this pricey but superb spirit.Trois Rivières Millésime 1980 en Carafe Baccarat – $2,620This rum was distilled in Martinique in 1980 and has been aged for almost four decades since, making perfect use of the island’s terroir, including rich volcanic soil and plenty of sun and rain. The liquor releases a powerful bouquet of ripe fruit, caramel, and coffee, with a flavor adding in pepper and a faint anise taste in the long, gentle finish. Bottles are priced in pounds (one sells for £2,000) so the price in U.S. dollars will fluctuate with the exchange rate. If you don’t want to spend about $2,620 but you still want a great rum from Martinique, try a bottle of Trois Rivières Rhum Ambré (Gold Rum), which has many of the same notes but costs just $45.Goslings Auld Trophy Rum – $10,000It might be hard to find a bottle of this limited-edition rum today, and you’ll likely pay more than the $10,000 asking price, too. But as it was made from the last of this legacy distillery’s oldest rum barrels, you’ll be buying a true taste of history. Auld Trophy Rum was produced in 2017 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the America’s Cup sailing race given the event’s taking place in the waters around Bermuda, home of the distillery. If 10 grand (or more) is a few dollars too many, try their more affordable Black Rum, or a bottle of Goslings Ginger Beer.

7 of the Best Hard Ciders to Try Right Now

first_imgThe U.S. is pressing fiercely toward 1,000 cider houses from sea to shining sea. It’s an impressive stat that confirms the industry as much, much more than just a trend. In this, the golden age of drinking, we no longer have to slug down sweet hard ciders made from overly processed ingredients and other additives. Instead, we are treated to the styles and personality one normally associates with the wine or beer realms. Unlike wine and beer, cider is a little less limited by geography. There are good apples growing just about everywhere, meaning a glut of good cider for the masses, made fresh and with a collective cider-making IQ that continues to rise. If you’re still on the fence about the stuff, there’s hardly been a better time to explore. Here are some of our favorites:Bauman’s Clyde’s DryBauman’s predates Prohibition by a long shot. The Willamette Valley farm was established in 1895 and began fermenting apples in barrels shortly thereafter. Today, it’s led by fourth-generation farmer and cider maker Christine Walter. Clyde’s Dry may be the label’s best cider. It’s layered like a good glass of wine, made from more than a dozen apple varieties, and boasts a rich tannic structure. For those still wary of the cider movement, give this one a try. It’s as well-built as any of your favorite IPAs or Chardonnays. Swift Cider Pineapple HopInfused ciders don’t always work but this one is a shining example of how to pull it off. Like a hazy IPA, it’s tropical and balanced, with a slight bitterness afforded by a light hop bill. Swift operates out of Portland, turning out a strong cast of natural ciders. What’s best about this option is the pineapple flavor, which comes through cleanly and genuinely. Outside of the obvious margarita or Corona, it’s hard to imagine a better beverage to accompany fish tacos. Shacksbury Arlo CiderVermont producer Shacksbury makes Old World cider in the New World. The Arlo calls Basque cider country its muse, showing a beautiful balance between dryness and tartness. It’s the result of a partnership that extends across the pond, involving European apple varieties fermented in chestnut barrels in Spain. The resulting juice is shipped stateside where it’s blended with some local New England fruit. In the end, it’s one of the better options out there, in terms of what’s canned and bottled. Mayador Natural CiderCider has a rich tradition in the Basque country of Spain, where it’s affectionately dubbed “sidra.” The Mayador Natural is a great example of the legacy, a rustic offering with plenty of punchy acid, herbaceous notes, and extremely bright apple flavors. It’s a little funky and does well with similarly funky cheeses. Farnum Hill FarmhouseThis New Hampshire outfit turns out some delicious adult apple juice. The Farmhouse is wonderfully raw, with clean green apple flavors and decent structure. It’s a good intro to the farmhouse style in that it’s not overly funky or yeasty, but you can still detect a bit of each. Enjoy this one on a warm afternoon with some salty snacks. Finnriver Oak and AppleWashington is the Apple State, so it damn well oughta make some good cider. Finnriver is among the state’s best producers, located in agriculturally fertile Chimacum in the Olympic Peninsula. The Oak and Apple is a fine cider and more than stands up to its own oak regimen. The brightness of the apples is counteracted by a woodsy, whiskey-like backbone. Made from Yakima Valley apples, this cider shows brightness, a bit of sweet vanilla, and some subtle spice notes. It’s semi-dry but far from sweet. E.Z. Orchards Willamette Valley CiderE.Z. Orchards crafts cider out of Salem, Oregon’s capital city. The brand began about a century ago as an orchard operation. Today, they’re known for growing outstanding heirloom apple varieties and turning out excellent ciders. The Willamette Valley is a gorgeous honey hue, with pie fruit flavors and warm, baking spice elements. It’s a bit hard to get your hands on given limited production and distribution, but well worth the effort.

Patrick Mahomes Loves of Ketchup and Now Gets Paid for That Love

first_imgPatrick Mahomes used to get made fun of for his love of ketchup. Now, last year’s National Football League MVP is making the most of his obsession with the condiment in an endorsement deal with Hunt’s. Once teased for that love, Mahomes is now free to eat as much ketchup as he wants.“I would get ketchup at a steak house and get embarrassed,” Mahomes said [Editor’s note: while we don’t endorse that, he’s the NFL MVP, so we’ll let it slide this one time]. “As I got older, it doesn’t even matter anymore. My mom said something about how much I love ketchup and now it’s blown up.” With his love of ketchup in mind, it might not be a coincidence he plays for teams in red; both his college team, Texas Tech, and his NFL team, the Kansas City Chiefs, have red as their primary color.Mahomes, the Chiefs quarterback, had a breakout season in 2018, throwing for 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns in his first season as a starter. Now, he’s building a strong endorsement portfolio, including a brand of his favorite food: ketchup. The deal was announced back in December and as Mahomes prepares for his next season, he’s sure to be eating plenty of ketchup.Vgajic/Getty ImagesWhile Heinz is the more well-known and, likely, loved brand of ketchup, Mahomes found a home with Hunt’s because of its people and their mission. With the partnership, he’s now the face of the brand’s “Best Ever” product. “They’re all about being the best and striving to be the best,” he said. “I knew it’d be a great brand to be a part of and now the Best Ever is my go-to.” Mahomes didn’t have many endorsement deals prior to his breakout MVP season, but his efforts last year sure seem to have paid off, as they’ve come in a flurry now that his value has surged. His deals include Adidas, Bose, Oakley, Essentia, Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs, and more. The Chiefs have a record of signing unique sponsorships. His teammate, tight end Travis Kelce, signed a deal last season with his brother, Philadelphia Eagle Jason Kelce, to endorse Old Spice’s beard care line.Now his main focus is not letting those endorsements get in the way of his play on the field. It’s the same reason he held out for so long to sign deals. “I wanted to make sure people knew football was first,” he said. “After having the great year, I was able to pick and choose the deals that work best with my brand and these brands know football is first.” It might be hard to live up to his MVP season, one in which the team also went to the AFC Championship game only to lose to the eventual Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, but he’s preparing the same way he always has.“I’m trying to just keep working on the fundamentals,” he says. “Last year, I made a lot of off-script plays and you want to keep doing that, but I’m always going to keep working on footwork and throwing mechanics, I do that each and every day.” The Most Refreshing Sparkling Waters to Sip On Right Now How to Shave With a Straight Razor A Brief History of Bubble Tea and the Best Flavors to Try 15 Best Subscription Boxes for Men Who Love Gifts Editors’ Recommendations The Ultimate Pillow Guide: The 6 Best Pillows for All Sleepers last_img read more

Sling bags and crossbody bags tend to accompany runway sneakers, skinny jeans or cutoffs, a well-curated tee, and maybe a five-panel. They pose questions and curiosity as to what variety of everyday carry (EDC) the individual is keeping tucked away, slung across the chest and ready to access at the slightest vibration or ping.

Mission Workshop Axis: VXFrom small-batch U.S. production comes the Mission Workshop Axis: VX modular waist pack.

Dempagumi.inc, a group of six otaku girls from Akihabara, have made a huge success in the concert at Budokan(1*). Having achieved a long time dream, Dempagumi.inc will aim for the next target.(1*)Budokan – the concert hall in Tokyo that can hold up to 14000 people. It is the venue where many musicians dream to perform in their career.From the left: Nemu Yumemi, Risa Aizawa, Mirin Furukawa, Ayane Fujisaki, Moga Mogami, Eimi NaruseOne Big Achievement for Dempagumi.inc―― First of all, thank you so much for the fantastic concert in Budokan. It was such a great atmosphere with full of affection from everyone including fans and staffs. Any changes in feelings after the concert?Mirin Furukawa (Mirin)  Before the concert, i thought the distance from the fans would be pretty far. But when I was standing on the stage, surprisingly, I could see everyone’s face. The differences was… well it’s kind of hard to say but it made me realize again that Dempagumi.inc’s show is still the same even in the huge venue like Budokan.Risa Aizawa (Risa) Actually, I was too desparate on the stage, so when it was over I kept asking myself “Is it really my memory?”. It was when I saw the replies from the fans on Twitter that I realized it really did happen. I was really happy to see the comments from the fans, particularly comments like “ it was very Dempagumi.inc-like concert even in the bigger hall, so I felt very close to the stage” That was in fact our main target of the show, so i was glad to hear comments like that.―― Mirin-chan, you mentioned in your blog the next target after Budokan. Can I hear about that?Mirin That was almost two years ago when we set a goal of “a place”, to perform in Budokan. Having achived that now, I have been thinking what can be next target, what could be our motivation. Then, I thought that would be something more than “a place”, something that would remain in fans’ heart. It’s more like something to do with emotion…umm sorry… it’s a little hard to explain.Yumemi Nemu (Nemu)  I do understand though. I feel that our next target is not “a place” anymore.Mirin And also, I have been thinking that it would be great if we can always deliver the show that could become the unforgettable memory for those who show up. It is because that one show could be the only time for that person to see Dempagumi.inc’s show, right? So that’s why I want every single show to be something unforgettable. In fact, our experiences in Dear Stage(2*) taught us that the thing of utmost importance is to please everyone. So yeah, we will spare no effort for that.(2*)Dear Stage – the Maid-cafe/Live house located in Akihabara, where Dempagumi.inc was originally formed.―― How about you, Nemu?Nemu I was slightly afraid that we might face burnout after the concert in Budokan. But then, once it was over, I was just too excited for the next tour. Budokan was actually the final show of the tour following the regional tour. It was our fans from everywhere that gathered at Budokan to see us, so the next tour will be our turn to visit them. Also I am excited to meet new fans that got to know us from some media… This is what I thought for the next step after Budokan. Our tour will still be kept on and we will try our best for each show.Close Relationship with Fans and Staff―― Well, It’s been widely known that Dempagumi.inc have a very close relationship with fans and staff. It’s like a well-balanced triangle. For example, in Budokan concert, the lyrics of the fan chants were put up on the screen. Also I remember, the colors of the lighting was aligned with fan chants as well. Nemu  That might be the lighting staff’s idea…―― Was it planned from the first place?Nemu Well, we didn’t even hear about that. It was totally done out of affection by our staff.Eimi Naruse (Eitaso)  and also, I was so touched by the chant booklet created by the fans. Apparently, our staff helped them out ahead of the show so that booklet would be prepared in every seat.―― They even made it foldable to make it handy, right?Eitaso Yes, that’s the one!Risa You know, that was done by our staff staying up all night… Unbelievable, isn’t it?―― Do you often feel this…”affection” from the fans and staff? Nemu Yes, we really do. For example, it’s normal for us to discuss and reflect on the performance of the show, right? But even our fans do that. Isn’t it surprising? I mean you wouldn’t normally see fans trying to improve by asking themselves “what can be done next?”… Definitely that couldn’t be done without affection.―― Do you think it is something to do with Dear Stage, where you have been based at for long time? because it has been very close to the fans? Nemu When we used to perform in Dear Stage, it was fans that created the chats and Wotagei(3*) for our songs. They even improvised on the spot for the new song. It’s like some sort of communication between them and us. It’s great to see that happening even in the bigger stage.Wotagei(3*) – type of dancing and cheering gesture performed by fans of Japanese idol singers.―― I see… maybe that is why the atmosphere in Budokan was exactly like in Dear Stage.The idol group with cultural aspect―― You know, I have been thinking Dempagumi.inc really have something different to other idol groups, and i think it’s because of the cultural aspect attached to you.Nemu  Wow! Mirin-chan! he said we have the cultural aspects!!―― and I thought this “cultural aspect” is related to your home, Akihabara. Do you feel anything about being an idol group from Akihabara? Risa Umm, for me, Akihabara is of course an important place where I met everyone including group members as well as fans. You know, I used to be very bad at dealing with people and giving my opinion in public. But then, when we started to open up ourselves, many people accepted us and gradually we gained supports from the fans. Consequently, that gave me a lot of power to become confident to try even harder. I know it’s great, but sometimes I’m worried about me being too dependent on the fans though.―― I see. I know Dempagumi.inc have done quite a few performances overseas. Did you find any differences to Japan? Mirin The first concert abroad was a really nervous one because I was worried that people wouldn’t understand us. But then, it turned out that everyone showed up because they were actually our fans. They got to know us and learned our chats from the internet. Surprsingly, some of them even created the local chats. So as a matter of fact, the show itself was not so different to the one in Japan. I think we all think the same.Nemu You know, we have some moves in our dances representing Japanese icons such as Sumo. Maybe that’s how we are acknowledged and accepted by overseas fans.Risa Yeah, otherwise they won’t celebrate our birthdays there, right? It was surprising to hear that it was the local fans that arranged birthday event for us when we visit their countries. The difference that I found between Japan and overseas is that, i think, many people are confident about their own country. You know, i was being humble and sort of denied when foreign fans told me something like “Japan is great” or “I envy you for being based in Akihabara”. But maybe I should become more confident about my own country, and at the same time they made me realize that I need to learn more about it.―― I think some of Dempagumi.inc’s songs such as “でんぱれーどJAPAN (Demparade Japan)” expresses a lot about Japanese cultures. Are you conscious about that when you perform?Mirin Innitialy when we released “Demparade Japan” back in 2012, we were not even conscious of performing overseas, and neither did we have a plan. Our catch phrases “ 萌えきゅんソングを世界にお届け! (Moekyun songu wo sekai ni otodoke!/Delivering the cute songs to the world!)” was not made because we were aiming to perform overseas…, right?Nemu No it wasn’t, it was meant to be very casual… like a pizza delivery!Mirin We have kept saying and now it came true…lol―― It’s like power of words!Risa But one thing I found out when we performed overseas, maybe it’s just my opinion, is that we express our interpretation of “Japaneseness” by replacing it with 2D world such as anime. It’s like expressing through some sort of filters. So… I don’t exactly feel that we are specifically expressing Japanese culture in our performances.―― One last question… When will you be performing in *the outer space?(* The final target of these girls is to save the world)All Whaaaaat!? lolNemu That must be hard, isn’t it?Eitaso We are going to float in the air…and how can we breathe?Nemu We have to train first, don’t we? But I wanna go to NASA!Moga Are you sure this is the last question!? lolInformationDempagumi.incOfficial site:http://dempagumi.dearstage.com/Twitter:https://twitter.com/dempagumiFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/dempagumi.incNew single 「ちゅるりちゅるりら(ChururiChururira)」7/30/2014 on sale 【Limited Edition】¥4,815+tax *Extra packaging&120p Booklet【Normal Edition】¥3,611+tax※Same DVD contents for Limited Edition/Normal Edition1.Dear☆Stageへようこそ♡2.1st ALBUMメドレー (Kiss+kissでおわらない~ Mirror Magic? ~ ピコッピクッピカ ッて恋してよ~わっほい?お祭り.inc ~ BEAM my BEAM)3.W.W.D4.でんぱれーど JAPAN5.VANDALISM6.ファンシーほっぺ♡ウ・フ・フ7.なんてったってシャングリラ8.ナゾカラ9.ノットボッチ…夏10.トキメキ☆すちゃらかテキサス(成瀬瑛美ソロ)11. あのね…実はわ たし、夢眠ねむなんだ…♡(夢眠ねむソロ)12. ニューロマンティック(最上もがソロ)13.

Feds target shovelready projects for quick wins on 13B social housing fund

first_imgOTTAWA – A newly launched federal housing fund is looking for early wins in a bid to help people with developmental disabilities, low-income seniors and women fleeing domestic violence.The $13.2-billion fund is the largest chunk of cash under the Liberals’ $40 billion national housing strategy unveiled late last year, but will require other levels of government or the private sector to kick in cash for projects.The money will be doled out through a mix of low-interest loans valued at almost $8.7 billion and $4.5 billion in non-repayable grants, that the government hopes will spur construction of 60,000 new, affordable housing units and pay for repairs to 240,000 more units to ensure they stay available for families in need.Among those numbers are expected to be at least 4,000 shelter spaces for survivors of family violence, 7,000 affordable units for seniors and 2,400 affordable housing spaces for people with developmental disabilities.Projects that meet or exceed accessibility and energy efficiency standards will be pushed to the front of the line for funding consideration. Officials are also going to prioritize projects that are advanced enough in planning that they could be approved for funding in the coming months.Although the cash is being spread out over the next decade, it is not planned to have specific allocations by province or territory. The minister in charge of the strategy says funding will be based on need.“The Canadian government will invest where there is a need to invest and where the social, environmental and economic impact is demonstrably significant,” Social Development Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said in an interview.The money begins to flow this year, unlike some provincial spending that will start next year.Duclos said the housing co-investment fund, among other items to be rolled out this year from the national housing strategy, has been in the works since he and his provincial and territorial counterparts met two years ago.“We’re now able to do things relatively quickly,” Duclos said.Getting money out the door soon could also give the Liberals a political boost during their re-election bid next year.At the Toronto announcement of the fund on Wednesday, Liberal MP Adam Vaughan implored local voters to support candidates in upcoming elections who would maintain funding to projects whose financing could be subject to changing political whims.The federal Liberals have looked to avoid that fate for their long-term plan, trying to lock in 10-year funding agreements with each province and territory by the end of the year so they can take credit in next year’s federal election that they are bringing the national housing strategy to life.The first of those deals was signed on Monday with Ontario, a 10-year deal valued at $4.2 billion aimed at protecting 130,000 affordable housing units in Canada’s most populous province.The terms of the agreement suggest the Trudeau Liberals used the electoral and fiscal needs of their provincial brethren to create leverage as federal officials hope to pry similar terms from the remaining provinces and territories.The deal with Ontario limits the ability of the province to carry over unspent money from one year to the next, so provincial governments can’t delay spending to artificially decrease budgetary deficits. It also provides few avenues for the province to opt out of the agreement if a future government wanted to renegotiate.last_img read more

Will Canadas Green Rush Discriminate

first_imgSo much for the meritocracy. When legal pot was just a hazy line on the horizon, a lot of people spent a lot of time picturing what the industry would look like. There were plenty of optimistic reports that women would dominate the cannabis industry.There were even hopes for more representative boardrooms and executives, with women and men of all skin colours sharing the wealth in an industry that, by virtue of prohibition and necessity, had always been somewhat more equal than established businesses.Then plans for legalization began to firm up, and reports began to look at how many billions of dollars would be up for grabs. And before you know it, the c-suites looked the same way they always have. Shocking, we know.So, what happened to that optimistic dream of a pot industry that offered equality? In a word: Money. Can women and people of colour still reclaim their seats at the table? Yes, actually.

Trudeau says carbon tax can help deal with extreme weather Alberta fires

first_imgVANCOUVER — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the federal carbon tax will help deal with extreme weather events such as fires in northern Alberta.Trudeau says Canadians are seeing the impact of climate change with an increase in wildfires in Western Canada, recent tornadoes in Ottawa and flooding across the country this spring.He says weather disasters are extremely expensive for Canadians, governments and the economy.That’s why he says the federal government is moving forward with a carbon tax despite push back from conservative politicians.His comments counter those made by Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, who has said forest fires have always happened and a carbon tax won’t change that.Trudeau says the carbon tax allows the federal government to protect land and oceans, invest in renewable resources and transition toward a cleaner economy.“We know that the extreme weather events coming are unaffordable for Canadians and for our society,” Trudeau said at an event in Vancouver.“That’s why we need to act. We need to act in a way that puts more money in the pockets of Canadians and that’s exactly what we’re doing with the climate incentive, with the support we’re giving to families.”The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Meet The NCAAs 5Foot9 Scoring Machine

With Clemons on the court, the Fighting Camels score 1.12 points per possession, according to Hoop Lens — or at a rate that would be among the best in the country if maintained over an entire season. When he sits, the team scores 0.84 points per possession, or at a rate that would rank around 300th if maintained. Without Clemons, the team’s effective field goal percentage drops more than 10 percentage points, and the team’s turnover percentage spikes almost 7 percentage points. As a pick-and-roll ball handler, he has scored more points this season than everyone else on the team combined, according to data provided by Synergy Sports.This season, Clemons is scoring 30.1 points per game, tied for the second-highest mark by any player since 1992. Charles Jones in 1996-97 was the last player to average more than 30 points per game over a season, while Central Michigan’s Marcus Keene came close in 2016-17, hitting 29.97. Clemons has scored in double figures in 111 consecutive games.2He scored 9 points against Gardner-Webb on Jan. 1, 2016 — the only time in his 126-game college career that he scored fewer than 10 points.He can also take the roof off an arena. Behind a 44-inch vertical3The combine record belongs to D.J. Stephens, who cleared 46 inches in 2013. and sculpted physique, Clemons has made a habit of dunking on defenders. Hard. Of Campbell’s 22 dunks this season, he has eight. “It’s like, ‘You’re 5-9!?’” McGeehan said, bewildered.4Last week, the university uploaded a YouTube video appropriately titled, “Campbell Men’s Basketball – Chris Clemons – Dunks.” Clemons is leaned on heavilyThe NCAA men’s basketball players with the highest share of their team’s possessions that season, since 2016-17 Chris Clemons is the shortest of the scoring greatsThe top 25 NCAA men’s basketball scorers and their height Hersey HawkinsBradley1984-883,0086’3″ Alphonso FordMississippi Valley State1989-933,1656’1″ Larry BirdIndiana State1976-792,8506’9″ Freeman WilliamsPortland State1974-783,2496’4″ 2018-19Ja MorantMurray St.So36.26’3″175 Lionel SimmonsLa Salle1986-903,2176’7″ 2018-19Chris ClemonsCampbellSr37.55’9″180 Chris ClemonsCampbell2015-193,1065’9″ Tyler HawsBYU2010-152,7206’5″ Mike DaumSouth Dakota St.2015-193,0066’9″ 2018-19Justin JamesWyomingSr36.06’7″190 Danny ManningKansas1984-882,9516’10” J.J.

Clemons has played at least 80 percent of team minutes each season on campus. As a senior, he’s taking on 93.1 percent.Over the past three seasons, Clemons has finished no lower than seventh nationally in KenPom’s percentage of possessions used metric, which measures how many possessions a player used while on court, assigning credit or blame to the player when his actions resulted in an ended possession. He leads the country this season, absorbing 37.5 percent of the team’s possessions. “Obviously,” McGeehan noted, “he’s heavily relied upon.” SeasonPlayerTeamYr.PossessionHeightWeight Hank GathersLoyola Marymount*1985-902,7236’7″ Daren QueenanLehigh1984-882,7036’5″ 2017-18D’Marcus SimondsGeorgia St.So35.86’3″200 2016-17Tiwian KendleyMorgan St.Jr35.16’5″190 No state has a glossier tradition in men’s college basketball than North Carolina. It has produced 13 national championships.1This is second only to California’s 15. The state has accounted for six national titles since 2000. No other state has more than three over that span. It is home to the sport’s fiercest rivalry: Duke vs. North Carolina. It has seen more than a hundred All-Americans and dozens of Hall of Famers cut their teeth on its courts, including Tim Duncan, Vince Carter and Michael Jordan.You might think that the state’s all-time leading scorer is one of those all-time greats. But he’s actually a current player. He’s not a Tar Heel or a Blue Devil or even a Demon Deacon. He’s a Fighting Camel in Buies Creek, North Carolina. Far from the spotlight, Chris Clemons, a senior at Campbell University in the Big South Conference, is making college-basketball history in a state that’s long on it.As a high schooler, Clemons was an all-state athlete in Raleigh, smack dab in the backyard of the ACC. When the power conferences overlooked him, Campbell didn’t. In fact, it sometimes brought the entire coaching staff to watch him hoop. “I told him when I was sitting in his living room that I thought he’d be the all-time leading scorer in Campbell history,” Campbell head coach Kevin McGeehan told me.Only five players in NCAA history have scored more than Clemons has. And his 3,106 points have not come easy: Clemons is 5-foot-9, at least 4 inches shorter than each of his teammates. But that disadvantage wasn’t a problem for McGeehan. “I’ve never thought twice about his height,” he said. 2017-18Tiwian KendleyMorgan St.Sr37.86’5″190 2017-18Milik YarbroughIllinois St.Jr35.56’6″230 Should his average hold, Clemons will finish the season with a 38.9 percent usage rate, which would give him three of the top 25 marks produced by players since 2009, the first year for which data is available.5Among players qualified for the points per game leaderboard. His career usage rate (35.9 percent) figures to edge former BYU star Jimmer Fredette for the top spot by any player over the past decade.There have actually been plenty of undersized, high-usage players on college courts. Clemons is just relied upon much more than any of the rest — and has been since he arrived on campus. Since 2008, there have been 450 seasons that saw a player shorter than 5-foot-10 appear in 20 games and play at least 40 percent of team minutes, according to BartTorvik.com. Of that sample, Clemons is in line to finish with the first, third, fourth and 23rd highest usage rates.Let’s remove the height restriction. Given those same qualifications, since 2008 there have been 522 seasons of a player producing a usage rate exceeding 30 percent. Of that pool, Clemons is on track to post two usage rates that rank in the top 15 and another one that ranks in the top 45. *Transferred from another schoolSource: Sports-Reference.com 2018-19Lamine DianeCal St. NorthridgeFr37.16’7″205 Doug McDermottCreighton2010-143,1506’8″ 2016-17Michael WeathersMiami (Ohio)Fr37.56’2″161 Allan HoustonTennessee1989-932,8016’6″ Reggie LewisNortheastern1983-872,7096’7″ 2017-18Trae YoungOklahomaFr38.5%6’2″180 lb. This season, only one player6UTSA’s Jhivvan Jackson. has taken a higher share of team shots than Clemons’s 39.3 percent.7 He hasn’t finished lower than fifth since his freshman campaign, when he ranked 22nd. This would be the fourth consecutive season that Clemons has finished in the top 25 in percentage of team shots taken, a feat of production that has never been matched since KenPom began tracking such metrics.8Since 2004.The Fighting Camels made their only NCAA Tournament appearance in 1992, five years before Clemons was born. This season, Clemons has Campbell roaring into shape to make a run at a second, provided the team wins its conference tournament.Which is to say: Clemons has the perennial green light to do everything. “I always had one,” Clemons said. “But I don’t remember it being like this.”Have coaches ever told him not to shoot? “I haven’t heard that lately,” he said.Is there anything McGeehan wouldn’t trust Clemons to do? “Probably give me a haircut.”Clemons’s numbers are more impressive when you consider the system under which he plays. Watching him, you get the sense that he could get to the rim or drain a jump shot around 10 seconds before he actually does. McGeehan runs a hybrid version of Pete Carril’s Princeton Offense that relies on quick ball movement and constant motion. It also typically suffocates tempo, as the Princeton Offense is ostensibly designed to limit huge production by either team. Campbell has ranked outside the top 190 in average offensive possession length each season since 2013. This season, it ranks 265th in adjusted tempo. Campbell averages 68.4 possessions per 40 minutes, which is tied for 238th nationally. North Carolina, for instance, averages nearly eight more possessions per game.Despite all of his success, Clemons may not ever reach the next level. To be sure, there have been other players under 5-foot-10 to reach the NBA: Muggsy Bogues, Earl Boykins, Calvin Murphy, Spud Webb. There have even been a few who have done it since the turn of the century: Isaiah Thomas, Kay Felder, Nate Robinson. Clemons, who has declared for the NBA draft after each of the past two seasons only to return to campus, is unlikely to join them via that route.The irony is heavy: One of the greatest scorers of all time, in arguably the state with the richest college basketball tradition, plays just a short drive down the road from perhaps the most-talked-about college athlete of all time, for a team that packed in fewer than 2,000 fans per home game last season. The smallest guy on the court is dealt the largest offensive burden and has most of the team’s dunks.

Two bloody days in Iraq 125 people killed and 270 wounded

first_imgWarning: Graphic imagesTWO DAYS OF violence in Iraq have killed 125 people, 99 of them in clashes and attacks involving security forces, protesters and their supporters, officials said today.At least 268 people have been wounded, 194 of them in protest-related unrest, which prompted two Sunni ministers to quit and has sent tensions in the country soaring.The violence, which began with clashes at a protest site in northern Iraq after security forces moved in, is the deadliest so far linked to demonstrations that erupted in Sunni Muslim areas of the Shiite-majority country more than four months ago.The protesters have called for the resignation of Shiite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and railed against the alleged targeting of their community by the authorities.On Wednesday, five soldiers and seven gunmen were killed and 63 people, including 20 soldiers, wounded in fighting in the Sulaiman Bek area north of Baghdad, security officers and an official said.MP Ashwaq al-Jaf said dozens were wounded in military air attacks in the area, and a high-ranking army officer confirmed helicopters were used in the fighting.In other violence that officers said was also apparently in revenge for Tuesday’s clashes, gunmen attacked a Sahwa anti-Al-Qaeda militia checkpoint in Khales northeast of Baghdad. They killed four militiamen and wounded a fifth, a police lieutenant colonel and a doctor said.Gunmen also wounded a policeman in the northern city of Mosul, while a soldier was hurt in another shooting to its south, police and a doctor said. Three gunmen were also killed in the Mosul attack.Apparently unrelated violence, including a car bomb in Baghdad and attacks in three other areas, killed at least 11 people and wounded 33, officials said. The body of a gunman killed during clashes with Iraqi security forces lies on the ground in Hawija, 150 miles north of Baghdad, Iraq. (AP Photo)The trouble began early on Tuesday when clashes broke out after security forces moved into an area near Hawijah in northern Iraq, where protests have been held since January.The initial fighting killed 53 people, while a series of revenge attacks left another 27 dead on Tuesday, and 15 more were killed in apparently unrelated unrest the same day.Two Sunni ministers quit in the wake of the initial violence, bringing to four the number of Sunni cabinet members who have resigned since 1 March.Abdulghafur al-Samarraie and Saleh al-Haidari, top clerics who respectively head the Sunni and Shiite religious endowments, held a joint news conference warning against sectarian strife and calling for politicians to meet on Friday.Samarraie warned of “malicious plans… with the goal of taking the country towards sectarian conflict,” and said he and Haidari agreed “to move quickly to extinguish the strife and stop the conspiracy.”In mourningOn Wednesday, mourners buried dozens of people killed the day before.Hundreds of them walked on the main road past the provincial council building in Kirkuk city alongside vehicles carrying 34 coffins.They chanted “We sacrifice for you, Iraq” and “We will take revenge for the martyrs of Hawijah,” continuing on to Hawijah, to the west of the city, where the dead were buried.“What happened was a massacre, and the situation is catastrophic and dangerous, and we should work on easing the tension,” said Kirkuk Deputy Governor Rakan Said.A protest organiser and a doctor said on Wednesday that two soldiers who were kidnapped by demonstrators the day before near Ramadi, west of Baghdad, had been released.Abdulrazzaq al-Shammari also said demonstrators were demanding that soldiers withdraw from all cities in Anbar province, where Ramadi is located, and stay in their main bases.Iraq holds first polls since US pullout as attacks spikelast_img read more

Starbucks to offer free iOS apps

first_imgStarbucks and Apple have been in a relationship for a number of years now. Apple provides Starbucks with free songs for customers and a section in iTunes when customers log in to Starbucks’ Wi-Fi network. Starbucks in return developed an iOS app that customers can use to track rewards and pay for drinks with. Now, this partnership will bring paid iOS apps to customers for free.Each app will come in the form of the familiar Pick of the Week cards. Those cards currently have a song per week that customers can download from the iTunes store.Shazam will be the first app to be offered as a part of the new program. It’s a great deal when you consider the regular price of the app is $5.99. Given the Apple-Starbucks bond, it seems fitting that the first app offered is a music-identifying one.It isn’t clear whether or not free songs will still be offered alongside the free apps.

Schoolboy who took upskirt pictures of teachers found guilty of outraging public

first_img Share3 Tweet Email4 Schoolboy who took upskirt pictures of teachers found guilty of ‘outraging public decency’ The teenager apologised for the “distress, worry and pain” he had caused. Image: Shutterstock/Natalie Board A TEENAGER WHO took upskirt pictures of two teachers at a school in Fermanagh has been found guilty of committing acts of outraging public decency.Timothy Boomer, now 18 and no longer a pupil at the school in question, was charged with five counts of committing an act of a lewd, obscene and disgusting nature and outraging public decency.BBC News reports that Enniskillen Youth Court heard that Boomer took five pictures of two female teachers at Enniskillen Royal Grammar School in 2015 and 2016, when he was 14 and 15 years old.In a statement, Boomer apologised for the “distress, worry and pain” he had caused. “It was a wrong, horrible thing to do and at that age I stupidly and wrongly thought it was a daredevil prank, which I genuinely meant no harm by,” he said.The images in question were found on a memory stick in an ICT room at the school, the BBC reports.Criminal offence The fact that the photos were taken by Boomer was not in dispute, but the case centred on the legal definitions of the offence.‘Upskirting’ is a criminal offence in England and Wales but not in Northern Ireland – although proposals to change this are currently being examined. A panel of magistrates at Enniskillen Youth Court rejected a defence argument that Boomer’s actions amounted to a prank rather than a criminal offence.The National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers welcomed the guilty verdict, saying it would hopefully allow the two teachers to move on from “these distressing events”.Boomer will be sentenced next month.Comments are closed due to ongoing legal proceedings.

Le bras dOrion de la Voie Lactée serait plus étendu quon ne

first_imgLe bras d’Orion de la Voie Lactée serait plus étendu qu’on ne penseSelon l’étude d’astronomes allemands, le bras d’Orion de la Voie lactée, dans lequel se situent le Soleil et la Terre, serait bien plus large que ce que les scientifiques pensaient jusqu’ici.La Voie lactée qui abrite notre Système solaire est une galaxie spirale dont la forme exacte est encore sujette à débat. D’après les estimations, elle serait formée d’un disque s’étendant sur quelque 80.000 années-lumière et comportant un bulbe central. Autour de cette structure, s’étendent de longues et minces régions de formations d’étoiles, appelées bras spiraux. Au total, la Voie lactée en compte quatre principales : le bras Sagittaire-Carène, le bras de Persée, le bras de la Règle et le bras Ecu-Croix. Mais elle en possède également d’autres plus petits parmi lesquels le bras d’Orion (ou bras local), situé entre les deux premiers précédemment situés. C’est dans cette région que se situe le Soleil et la Terre. Néanmoins, celle-ci pourrait être bien plus étendue que ce que les scientifiques croyaient jusqu’ici. C’est en tout cas ce qu’assure une étude présentée à la 222e réunion de l’American Astronomical Society. Menés grâce au réseau de télescope Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) de la National Science Foundation, ces travaux indiquent que le bras d’Orion ne devrait plus être considéré comme une petite région de la Voie lactée mais comme un bras adjacent aux autres. Un motif important de la Voie lactée ? “Notre nouvelle preuve suggère que le bras d’Orion devrait apparaitre comme un motif important de la Voie lactée”, explique Albert Sanna du Max-Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy en Allemagne. C’est en cherchant à déterminer la forme exacte de la galaxie que les astronomes ont fait leur découverte. Pour cela, ils ont utilisé des données collectées entre 2008 et 2012 et évaluant les distances existant entre la Terre et certains objets de la Voie lactée. “En observant les objets lorsque la Terre est sur des côtés opposés de son orbite autour du Soleil, les astronomes peuvent mesurer le changement subtile de position apparente d’un objet dans le ciel, comparé à l’arrière-plan d’objets plus distants”, écrivent les responsables du National Radio Astronomy Observatory dans un communiqué. “Cet effet est appelé parallaxe et peut être démontré en plaçant votre doigt devant votre nez  et en fermant alternativement chaque oeil”, ajoutent-ils. Les astronomes ont ainsi utilisé cette méthode pour mesurer les distances jusqu’à des régions de formations d’étoiles bien précises de la Voie lactée. Ils ont également suivi leur mouvement dans l’espace. Or, au vu “des distances et des mouvements spatiaux que nous avons mesurés, notre bras d’Orion n’est pas une pointe. C’est une structure majeure, peut-être une branche du bras de Persée, ou un segment de bras indépendant”, détaille Sanna.  Un premier pas vers une meilleure connaissancePour aller plus loin, les astronomes devront évidemment poursuivre les recherches mais ces résultats ont déjà permis d’en apprendre un peu plus sur la structure de notre galaxie. De quoi affecter les futures modèles de notre système.

Celui-ci vise à cartographier la Voie lactée et pourrait ainsi fournir de nouveaux éclairages sur notre galaxie et sur les autres.(crédits photo : Robert Hurt, IPAC; Bill Saxton, NRAO/AUI/NSF) Le 8 juin 2013 à 11:18 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

FFF Stakeholders Meet To Assess Progress

first_imgAbdoulai G. DibbaForest and Farm Facility initiative (FFF) together with stakeholders, have recently met at Tendaba Camp in the Lower River Region, to assess progress in programme implementation in 2017 and to brain storm on how the country will benefit from the second phase of the initiative next year.The FFF is an initiative from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), to support countries to improve their Governance structures at different levels (local, national and regional), to achieve sustainable forest landscape management.The initiative was launched in March 2013 and the Gambia has been a beneficiary of the initiative, through the National Farmers Platform of the Gambia, for the organization of forest and farm producers at the national and subnational levels, to engage in policy dialogue, review, monitoring and implementation of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy, and to engage with Government institutions in A cross-sectoral, multi stakeholder platform with nine small grants to primarily women groups.In addition, a total of 24 community forestry committees were trained in MA and D in 2015 which led to the identification of six “main products” (ecotourism, handicraft making, beekeeping, nursery management, timber and firewood production), described in 50 community forestry management plans.The outcomes of the two-day National Stakeholders Meeting on Forest and Farm Facility Monitoring and Learning Framework, will enable stakeholders to assess whether the expected results were met or not, and prepare for further interventions.In his welcome statement, the Chief of Kiang Central District, Alhagie Demba Sanyang, thanked FAO, IIED and IUCN for supporting the country through the FFF initiative; that their communities have gained ownership of their community forests and that the recent nationwide tour of the Ministry of Environment, handed over 39 community forests to the 77 communities’ forest that were handed over in 2015. He thanked the FFF and their partners for facilitating the process and called on the communities to be mindful of bushfires as it could set the whole project backward.The President of National Farmers Platform Alagie Basse Mboge indicated that head Chiefs of Kiang Central are members of their regional taskforce making the handing over of the community forest to the local communities successful; that they are gathered for the monitoring and learning of their previous activities. The NFP President stated that the last tour of the Minister of Environment indicates that all the projects in the Gambia should emulate the FFF activities which the Minister highly commended; that the FFF has been supporting farmers to increase food production within farming communities which has linked them to regional networks. According to Mr. Mboge, they have structured many farmer base organizations through the support of the FFF.He concluded by calling on the farmer based organisations to take their work seriously in the interest of their members and the country.The FAO Regional Country Coordinator for the Gambia, Ms Sophie Gronwell, applauded Gambians for the New Democracy and indicated that they are gathered to learn of the impact and the results of the first phase that is just ending.“There are so many initiatives starting in the new Gambia and you have something very valuable that you can sell to international donors and partners which is your success stories, achievements and the gaps in the implementation of the FFF’s programmes” she said.She concluded that they will launch the next phase in early January next year; that with the ten countries where they have done a lot of work, many of them like to have a second phase.Ansumana Tamba, a Forestry Officer asserted that the Department of Forestry has collaborated with FFF since the beginning and are happy with the outcome of the successful implementation of the programme.last_img read more

Fireplace industry veteran inventor gives advice on turning a vision into a

first_imgDouglas Greene, the founder of Skytech Inc. in Vancouver, spent most of his 40-year career building and running businesses in the fireplace industry before he hit on his big idea. At a time when most fireplaces still burned wood, Greene developed a remote control that helped propel natural gas fireplaces into the mainstream. Greene sold Skytech in 2000 and is now an angel investor who volunteers for SCORE small-business counselors in Vancouver. He’s also a guest lecturer on innovation and entrepreneurship at Southeast Missouri State University’s Innovation Center in Springfield, Mo. Here he talks to The Columbian about his experience as an inventor and his advice for turning an idea into a business.How do you define the term “entrepreneur”?It’s getting that idea and then doing something with it. What makes a good idea?Ideas are like raisins; when you sneeze they’re all over the place. You have to choose one that’s marketable.What was your moment of inspiration?I was on a sales trip to Taiwan. They were experimenting with gas fireplaces. At the time, all of the stores (in the U.S.) were selling wood-burning only. (The Asian manufacturers) wanted a way to control their fireplaces remotely, and I saw an opportunity. How did you get started?I went to a trade show for garage door manufacturers and talked to a vendor who was selling remote controls. He said he couldn’t help me — their minimum order was 100,000 units — but he knew a guy in California. (The Californian) designed two prototypes for $8,000. Then, I met with manufacturers, figured out the base cost and pitched it to the fireplace companies.How did the business do?The market for gas fireplaces took off, and I was the only one making remote controls. That changed, of course, as the manufacturers started making their own. But by then I had an advantage: I was there first. I never patented anything. I would just improve it each year and they could never keep up with me. I reached $5 million in annual revenue by the time the business closed in 2000. The margins were obscene. There’s a tremendous opportunity in niche markets.last_img read more

Demonetisation effect Banks to take a Rs1000 crore hit on fee income

first_imgFee income of banks is likely to be hit by around Rs 1,000 crore as charges on card transactions have been waived off by lenders owing to demonetization drive.After ban of high value currencies, government had given direction to banks for waiving off fees on card transactions till December 31, 2016 in order to push digital payments.According to a report in Economic Times, banks would incur a loss of around Rs 1,000 crore due to this move and their losses would rise if the waiver would be extended further. Merchants have to pay merchant discount rate (MDR) to banks to cover bank’s costs to facilitate the transaction.”We have not received any formal instructions from the government in that matter, but we have been assured that if there is revenue loss to banks because of waiving of these charges, they might compensate us from a technology fund that they have set aside,” the report quoted a senior bank official as saying.Bankers were of the opinion that as the cost associated with the maintenance of card acceptance and payments infrastructure was recovered through the MDR fees, it shouldn’t be extended.The Reserve Bank of India has put a cap on fees collected by banks for debit card transactions. Fees for debit card transactions beyond Rs 2,000 were charged at 1 per cent, while it stands at 0.75 per cent for anything below Rs 2,000. However, fees for credit card transactions are not capped and vary depending on the arrangement between bank and the merchant.last_img read more

Beth Moores ministry reignites debate over whether women can preach

first_img Instagram apostasy stirs controversy over Christian ‘influencers’ August 30, 2019 Adelle M. Banks News Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — In the world of Bible teachers, Beth Moore is a rock star.She packs sporting arenas and big-name churches. She has written dozens of best-selling books. She has an outsize social media following.But among some of the male leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention, where she is a member, she has also become a liability.After suggesting on Twitter that she was spending Mother’s Day preaching at a church — though she did not use the word “preaching” — a crowd of prominent Southern Baptist men charged after her.“For a woman to teach and preach to adult men is to defy God’s Word and God’s design,” wrote Owen Strachan, professor of Christian theology at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Mo.“There’s just something about the order of creation that means that God intends for the preaching voice to be a male voice,” piped in R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., in a podcast.Josh Buice, pastor of a Southern Baptist church in Georgia, was even more explicit.The title of his recent blog post: “Why the SBC Should Say ‘No More’ to Beth Moore.”RELATED: Amid a #MeToo culture, Southern Baptists mull ways to increase women’s rolesThe uproar is part of a decades-old theological battle over the role of women that appears to be reigniting on the eve of the denomination’s annual meeting, which begins Tuesday (June 11) in Birmingham, Ala.Beth Moore speaks at Transformation Church,  near Charlotte, N.C., on June 2, 2019. Photo courtesy of Transformation ChurchThe Baptist Faith & Message, the SBC’s official statement of doctrinal beliefs, asserts that although men and women are created equal, they have different roles in marriage, family and the church, a position called “complementarianism.”According to the document, which was amended in 1998 to include a section on the family, a wife “must submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband.” Only men can serve as pastors of a church, a distinction added to the statement in 2000.Religion News Service could not confirm whether Moore spoke at a church on Mother’s Day, and Moore declined an interview.She did, however, preach, or she might say “teach,” at Transformation Church, a nondenominational megachurch outside Charlotte, N.C., this past Sunday (June 2).“We had no idea that there was some kind of controversy brewing,” said Pastor Derwin Gray. “I’d been trying to get Beth to speak for years and her schedule finally opened up.”Regardless, no one would deny Moore has preached before mixed audiences of men and women. And that has become a mounting concern among some — notably male — SBC leaders, who say it’s OK for women to preach to women, but not to men.Moore, who is 61 and lives in Houston, has for years toed the line with Southern Baptist orthodoxy, carefully balancing her teaching role with the demands of Christian femininity as defined by evangelicals.But the election of Donald Trump in 2016, and the pre-election debate over the now-infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, in which Trump boasted about groping women’s genitals, appeared to break something in her, especially after numerous Christian leaders appeared to condone the behavior as “locker-room talk.”Moore, a survivor of sex abuse, tweeted recently that 2016 was a turning point. She also said she felt “compelled to my bones by the Holy Spirit – I don’t want to be but I am – to  draw attention to the sexism & misogyny that is rampant in segments of the SBC, cloaked by piety & bearing the stench of hypocrisy.”Beth Moore addresses attendees at the summit on sexual abuse and misconduct at Wheaton College on Dec. 13, 2018. RNS photo by Emily McFarlan MillerThat reproachful tone was new to Moore, who prior to the #MeToo movement had struck a more cheerful note.“My hunch is that it’s precipitated a lot of soul-searching for her and for a lot of women like her, who have been willing to continue within a more traditional, gendered role,” said Nancy Ammerman, a professor of sociology at Boston University School of Theology. “Seeing the way that has been harmful to so many women has caused this kind of soul-searching.”That more critical tone has been amplified by social media, especially Twitter.Over the past decade, social media has given women a platform they never had. Moore, though she is not ordained, can speak as forcefully on Twitter as any of the ordained male leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention.Indeed, she has the larger megaphone.With a Twitter following five times or more the size of her critics’ (Moore has 900,000 followers to Strachan’s 21,000, Mohler’s 166,000 and Buice’s 25,000), she has shown she can hold her own.In recent posts, she has skillfully diverted attention away from the raging debate in an attempt to refocus on the gospel.After the uproar over her Mother’s Day church appearance, she tweeted: “Troubled brothers, try to relax. I do not see a female takeover on the horizon. Have some herbal tea.”Being asked by pastors & their elders on occasion to address their congregations does not mean that the woman -coming by their invitation, mind you -wants to pastor their church. Troubled brothers, try to relax. I do not see a female takeover on the horizon. Have some herbal tea.— Beth Moore (@BethMooreLPM) May 31, 2019“She’s trying to keep these debates secondary and just say, ‘Relax. Jesus is at the heart,’” said Kristin Kobes Du Mez, a professor of history at Calvin College who studies gender roles.But while Moore’s detractors accuse her of “doctrinal drift,” it’s also clear that Southern Baptist views on complementarianism span a wide spectrum.While most self-described complementarians agree that women may not pastor a church, many are more flexible when it comes to women teaching men, even preaching.Moore has called herself a “soft complementarian.” She has pointed out that the Baptist Faith & Message says “the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture,” a view she said she agrees with. That doctrinal statement is silent on the question of women preaching.R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky. RNS photo by Adelle M. BanksMohler argues the clear teaching of the Bible is that women may not preach and he points to passages from the Apostle Paul, who wrote in 1 Timothy, “I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.”“I think that the best reading of the biblical passages, including in 1 Timothy 2, is that if it’s understood to be the authoritative teaching of the church then it should be done by men,” he said. “And not by any man, but men especially commissioned and recognized by the church for that task.”Mohler said it was important to re-engage the issue of women’s roles because “there’s also the reality that you have a younger generation, especially of pastors and of young men and young women asking these questions anew, and so we’re going to have to deal with them.”Meanwhile, Moore is scheduled to speak on a panel with SBC President J.D. Greear on the denomination’s sexual abuse in the hours ahead of its annual meeting next week in Birmingham. Baptists will consider an amendment that would allow the Southern Baptist Convention to remove from its ranks a church that covers up abuse, among other items on the agenda.READ: Southern Baptist leaders plan to remedy ‘insufficient’ approach to abuse claimsGreear said he hoped discussions about women’s roles would not overtake other issues the convention is facing.“We should also not let these discussions distract us from what we must be talking about this Convention — responding to abuse and rising to the challenge of making our churches safe spaces for the vulnerable,” he told RNS in an email.Author and speaker Beth Moore encourages women during the Southern Baptist Convention Pastors Wives Conference on June 11, 2018, at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas. Photo by Kathleen Murray via Baptist PressBut at a Founders Ministries event on Monday just a few blocks from the SBC meeting site in Birmingham, another panel discussion is scheduled, titled, “Should Women Preach in Our Lord’s Day Worship?”The panel is part of a daylong conference on “Mature Manhood in an Immature Age.” And for some Southern Baptists, that conference itself is intended to do just what the president of the SBC has tried to steer clear of.“Why in the world are they holding another conference” the same week, asked the Rev. Wade Burleson, pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Enid, Okla., and a frequent SBC critic. “It’s almost like they’re driving a wedge in the SBC over the issue of women.”One thing appears certain: Beth Moore won’t be at the Founders Ministries conference.But she just might tweet about it.(National Reporter Emily McFarlan Miller contributed to this report.)

Mayor Pugh Adds 20 to Her Office

first_imgBaltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh is growing her office with 20 new positions, to improve and expand city services to various communities Pugh says.“I need people to understand how our city operates,” Pugh said during a press conference March 1. “Our city is 24 hours. So, that means you need people out there 24 hours, dealing with some of the problems the city is facing.”Former mayoral candidate and high school principal, Dr. Andrey Bundley has been tapped by Mayor Catherine Pugh to lead the Office of African American Male Engagement. (Courtesy photo)The Baltimore Sun reports that Pugh has augmented the budget for her office to $8.6 million, an increase of $1.6 million over last year.The mayor said the positions would be distributed throughout various divisions of her administration including, media and communications, neighborhood liaisons and employment development. The Board of Estimates unanimously approved the addition of the 20 positions Feb. 28.According to Pugh, several of the positions will be utilized to serve the city’s burgeoning homeless population. “Homelessness is a major issue,” she said. “We don’t just move people off of the street, we have conversations, we do surveys, we try to locate places where they can go, we try to accommodate them. And so, it requires more than one person.”One of the more high-profile positions will be filled by Dr. Andrey Bundley, a man intimately familiar with the inner workings of city government and politics, who has mentored young Black males for many years.Pugh has tapped Bundley to lead the newly created Office of African American Male Engagement, a position that could pay him as much as $155,000. A respected leader among many in the Black community for several years, Bundley first gained public attention in the 1990’s as the principal of what was then the troubled Walbrook High School Uniform Services Academy, in West Baltimore.Bundley left his position as a safety director for Baltimore City Public Schools last month, to take the new position. According to the Mayor’s office, the new effort, which will expand mentoring services for Black boys vulnerable to crime and violence, is modeled after the Philadelphia Office of Black Male Engagement. It also echoes President Barack Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative.Bundley, has worked for several years specifically mentoring and engaging young Black males, drawing upon his own challenging Baltimore childhood, which included foster care. Bundley also has experience confronting a political power structure that has sometimes seemed hostile to young Black men. In 2003, when he ran for mayor of Baltimore against then Mayor Martin O’Malley, Bundley was arrested, handcuffed and detained by a Baltimore police officer (allegedly for failing to obey a lawful order), when he was distributing campaign flyers near a Baltimore nightclub.Bundley was not formally charged, but the incident was cited as an example of the problems with zero tolerance policing policy, which unconstitutionally targeted communities of color, according to the Department of Justice.last_img read more

Smithsonian Honors Black Womens Bravery in HiddenHerstory

first_imgWashingtonians have a few more reasons to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) as it launches a new social media campaign, #hiddenhistory, and offers four public programs to celebrate the role of women in the struggle for civil rights. Events will explore the journeys of inspiring women like Harriet Tubman and Recy Taylor and feature a combination of film, theatre, and panel presentations.NMAAHC honor Black heroes during Nationan Women’s Month (Courtesy photo)The screening of “The Rape of Recy Taylor” on Friday, March 16 appears timely as the growing national “Me Too” movement continues a conversation about about sexual assault and discrimination. The film tells the story of Taylor, a rape survivor, in 1944 Alabama, according to a Smithsonian press release. After identifying her six White assailants, her struggle is joined by the NAACP’s chief rape investigator: Rosa Parks.The museum’s Women’s History Month commemoration concludes on Thursday, March 29 with “Harriet’s Daughters: An Evening of Conversation and Celebration,” a panel presentation and keynote exploring Harriet Tubman’s legacy and impact on American life. Panelists will include Barbara Arnwine, president and founder of Transformative Justice Coalition and Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, artist and activist. The keynote speech will be given by legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw, one of the academic leaders in intersectionality theory.Museum staff will use the hashtag #HiddenHerstory to honor women artists, women activists and women educators who have shaped American history through a commitment to ending discrimination, the release said.All events will take place in the Oprah Winfrey theater. Events “strongly encourage” registration, but are free and open to the public.last_img read more

Shattering the unbroken view of society

first_imgCelebrating the talent of fresh and new makes a compelling case for contemporary art in the city. Such is the case of exhibition ‘Panorama-9’. Curated by Priyanka Banerjee, this exhibition will host over 30 artists who will bring to the viewers a varying range of interpretation of ranging contemporary issues.The exposition delves into the contemporary issue of social relevance, such as feminism, ethical treatment of animals, spiritual harmony, global warming and so on. Nature, for instance, is explored through the mutually symbiotic relationship of flora and fauna. Urbanisation and industrialisation have exploited the natural layers of our ecosystem, and its awareness becomes paramount to awaken our collective consciousness. As each artist touches upon subject the subjects that have been paralysed by the society, their canvas becomes a window for us all to explore the possibilities. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIn a one of its kind initiative, this five-day exhibition is wholly funded by the participating artists. The participating artists are Meghna Agarwal, Shalini Varshney, Shyam Porwal, Mahua Sinha, Jolly Sharma, Meena Wason, Babun Ghosh, Mahesh Kumar, S.K Chouhan, Vatsala Ranjan, Jasmeet Khurana, Gaurav Dahiya, Kritika Mitra, Aman Anand, Rama Sharma, Ram Kumar, Amit Kumar, Tapan Das, Abid Zaidi, Sheikh Abdullah, Uma Bardhan, Alpana Kataria, Mridul Chakraborty, Nilay Sarkar, Pulakesh Mondal, Ravi Verma, Veena Singh, Punam Rai, Darshan Sharma, PurnenduMondal, and Archana Das.Dabbling in a diverse range of mediums, from watercolour, oil and pen and pencils to mixed media, the artists bring to their canvas emotions that reverberate with social significance. The colours, shapes and emotion have emerged from the very soul of the Capital, and together they will converge at Visual Art Gallery, India Habitat Centre this autumn from September 11-15.last_img read more

Putin Netanyahu meet to discuss Syria

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Putin wrapped up the meeting by saying that Russia and Israel share concern about the situation in Syria. He said that he and Netanyahu believe that the conflict in Syria is fraught with negative consequences for the entire region, adding that they agreed to follow the situation through personal contacts and links between Russian and Israeli special services.“Only a quick cessation of hostilities and a political settlement can prevent a negative scenario,” Putin said. “At this sensitive moment, it’s particularly important to avoid any action that could destabilize the situation.”Putin hailed what he described as close ties between the two countries, and Netanyahu responded in kind and invited Putin to make another trip to Israel.Netanyahu added that the volatile situation in the Middle East requires action to improve security. “The region around us is very unstable and explosive, and therefore I am glad for the opportunity to examine together new ways to stabilize the area and bring security and stability to the area,” he said at the start of the talks.The warm statements and assurances of mutual friendship contrasted with sharp criticism by Israeli Tourism Minister Uzi Landau, who on Monday accused Russia destabilizing the Middle East by selling weapons to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime. “Anyone who provides weaponry to terror organizations is siding with terror,” Landau said. MOSCOW (AP) – Russian President Vladimir Putin met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday for talks that focused on the situation in Syria, amid concerns that Moscow could soon provide Damascus with advanced missiles.Israeli officials have asked Russia to stop what they say is an imminent delivery of Russian S-300 air defense systems to Syria.However, neither leader mentioned the missiles in their brief opening remarks and concluding statements after the talks. They took no questions from reporters. Their refusal to mention the missile issue in public and their friendly tone may reflect an understanding reached in talks that lasted several hours.

Don Shooter shows health improvement New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Russia has continued to ship weapons to Syria despite the civil war there, but so far has refrained from providing Damascus with the S-300s, a powerful weapon that has a range of up to 200 kilometers (125 miles) and the capability to track down and strike multiple targets simultaneously with lethal efficiency.The weapon would mean a quantum leap in Syria’s air defense capability, including against neighboring countries that oppose Assad’s regime.Israel attacked suspected shipments of advanced Iranian missiles in Syria with back-to-back airstrikes this month. Israeli officials signaled there would be more attacks unless Syria refrains from trying to deliver such “game-changing” missiles to ally Hezbollah, an anti-Israel militia in Lebanon and key Syrian ally. Hezbollah said weapons shipments won’t cease.Netanyahu in his concluding statement emphasized the need for Israel to protect its people, adding that “deep and thorough discussions” with Russia would help find ways to improve regional stability.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Doltone House Awarded At Night of Nights For the NSW Event Indu

first_imgRenowned Sydney venue and catering collection, Doltone House takes out the NSW 2011 Meetings & Events Industry Award (Specialty Meeting Venue) category as well as NSW 2011 Cause Related Event of The Year for the Biaggio Signorelli Foundation event.Doltone House has been announced as winner of the 2011 NSW Meetings and Events Industry Award for the Specialty Meeting Venue category. The prestigious night of nights was hosted by the Sofitel Wentworth yesterday evening with some 300 of the who’s who of the NSWs events industry in attendance. One of the final awards of the evening was Cause Related Event of The Year, where the partnership between Doltone House and the Biaggio Signorelli Foundation found success. The Biaggio Signorelli Foundation was set up by Doltone House Directors/Owners, honouring their late father who passed away of Mesothelioma, a terminal asbestos related cancer. They have committed to almost $1million dollars in just under 4 years; funded three medical scholarships; funded the national guidelines for treatment and cure of Mesothelioma, received two NSW Government grants as well as most recently funding an International Registry Scholarship.Both awards were accepted by Anna Cesarano, Director of Doltone House.

Qantas savagely clips its financial wings

first_imgQantas is likely to be given a debt guarantee by the Abbott Government until its foreign ownership restrictions can be lifted.   “The Australian domestic market has been distorted by the current Australian aviation policy which allows Virgin to be majority owned by three foreign airlines,” Joyce said. The job cuts include a reduction of 1,500 management and non-operational positions and will be carried out over a three period until the 2017 financial year. The Qantas Group will cut 5,000 jobs, sell assets and reduce capital expenditure in order to try to return to profit by financial year 2015, Qantas chief executive officer, Alan Joyce said at a press conference today. Joyce said that the need for restructuring was promoted by the uneven playing field in the Australian aviation sector. Qantas has bought 132 aircraft, with an average age of 7.6 years. Source = ETB News: T.N.

first_img D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Comments   Share   As the Arizona Cardinals head into their final preseason game, they do so with a few position battles still yet unresolved. We are looking at what is left to be determined, including the third quarterback position.Think about it: while most are focused on the battle for the top job — and rightfully so — there is an equally intense competition for the third spot between rookie Ryan Lindley and veteran Richard Bartel, because chances are the loser will be looking for a job come cut day. What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinkecenter_img Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt is not likely to keep four quarterbacks on the roster. Remember, when he took over as head coach in 2007 he began the season with just two.Ryan LindleyA sixth-round pick out of San Diego State, it’s obvious the Cardinals are high on the rookie. He has a good arm, can move in the pocket and is big enough to see over the defense. However, accuracy was known to be his issue, and that has held true so far in the preseason.Lindley has thrown for 362 yards in the preseason but has tallied zero touchdowns, two interceptions and has completed just 51.5 percent of his passes. The rookie is set to get the start against Denver in the team’s final exhibition game, which could be a sign that a roster spot is his to lose. Coach Whisenhunt says he wants to see how Lindley responds to playing with and playing against quality NFL players, and he’ll do just that.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Adrian Wilson was a gatekeeper for the Arizona Cardinals, a man revered among his peers. He was a physical specimen, one of a kind, who played the game with a chip on his shoulder, desperately trying to win the respect of players, fans and coaches across the league. This man’s career will be defined by his willingness and aptitude of playing in the box while still making plays in the secondary. His 5 Pro Bowls stand as testament to how productive he was as a player. He was a vicious tackler, and his 25.5 sacks and 27 interceptions make him one of six people in the history of the league to have 25 sacks and 25 interceptions. One of six human beings… Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories center_img 0 Comments   Share   The Cardinals are saying goodbye to an era. Kurt Warner is gone, Anquan Boldin is gone, Ken Whisenhunt is gone and now Adrian Wilson is gone. The stuff of Super Bowls has become a motivating memory and a point of pride within the organization, but they recognize they’re a long way from Super Bowl XLIII. This was a move the Cardinals had to make, unfortunately. Steve Keim is putting his stamp on this team and has already saved over $10 million on the salary cap. The team needs to be rebuilt around its youth, a core group is being reestablished, and all good things must come to an end.Adrian wasn’t surprised by this and he won’t be surprised when the Cardinals lift his 24 jersey into the rafters above the Red Sea at University of Phoenix Stadium.Well done, Gasman…well done, indeed.

14 2012 3:14 am Related News So that critical items arent in short supply Thats the way to fight inflation Persistently high food inflation has been attributed to a black box called structural problems of Indian agriculture Howeverthis neither helps in understanding the dynamics of food inflation nor in devising the right strategies to quell it For a startwe need to recognise that the prime contributors to food inflation are not cereals like rice and wheat Insteadthey are pulsesfruitsvegetables and the so-called protein basket that includes meat and milk If we take the January-March period of this yearaverage inflation in cereals was a meagre 4 per cent The average in pulses in the same period was 97 per cent; in eggsmeat and fish it was 184 per cent This is part of a longer trend where over the past five years or so the relative price of non-cereal food items has risen vis-a-vis cereals The key to solving the food inflation puzzle then is to answer the question: why hasnt this sustained shift in relative prices brought about an appropriate supply response that would have led to a correction in the inflation differential Why has the farmer not shifted his cropping pattern from rice and wheat to pulses or vegetables and increased the supply of the latter The reasons for this disconnect between relative price changes and expected shifts in cropping patterns differ across items but there are common factors For examplepulses are fundamentally different from cereals since they need nutrients and energy for synthesising both proteins and carbohydrates unlike cereals that need to synthesise only carbohydrates This makes them more vulnerable to the vagaries of weather than either rice or wheat and thus riskier to cultivate This risk would have been mitigated if farmers had better marketing and price support But unlike cereals where there is a procurement price system run by the government that offers a minimum support price and private trade that has developed alongsidethis is not true of pulses Though the government declares a minimum support price for most pulsesprocurement operations are far less effective than those for cereals Thus farmers could see a complete collapse in prices if the crop is good The lack of a robust marketing network also implies that in periods of deficitwhen retail prices actually pick upfarm gate prices remain subdued It is not surprising then that in a number of the major pulses-producing states (MPRajasthanMaharashtra and UP)cultivation has been pushed to marginalnon-irrigated land Farmers have also been reluctant to invest in fertilisers and other nutrients or experiment with high-yielding but more expensive varieties of pulses As a consequenceyields have stagnated From about 590 kg/hectare in the 1990sthe average yield for pulses (averaged across major categories) has risen to barely 600 kg/hectare in the 2000s The average annual growth rate in the output of pulses is less than 1 per cent This is alarming since pulses are the major source of proteins for Indians and the population growth is about 2 per cent For fruits and vegetablescropping risks stem from the absence of a cold chain and an inadequate food processing industry Given these risksfarmers are reluctant to follow price signals and commit more land to these items instead of cereals Post-harvest waste of fruits and vegetables is as high as 50 per centand higher output simply translates into higher levels of wastage and a collapse in farm-gate prices A thriving food-processing industry could have provided producers an assured market and relative price stability But thatalasis not the case since food processing is confined to only about 2-3 per cent of fruit and vegetable output Thailandin comparisonprocesses 30 per cent and Brazil 70 per cent The milk sector presents a curious irony India is the largest milk producer in the world with an annual output of 96 million tonnes The per capita consumption is higher than the minimum consumption norms prescribed by the WHO Howeverthese aggregates are shored up by the success of the cooperative movement in Gujarat (NDDB or Amul)which began in the 1970sand a handful of cooperatives in other states A number of states are severely deficit in milk The result again is sustained high prices of milk and its impact on food inflation To make a dent in milk priceswe need an Amul in every stateproviding procurement and marketing support to millions of milk-producers who are now outside any safety net The solution to food inflation thus lies in recognising the specific problems that plague Indian agriculture Merely trying to increase yields by increasing supply varieties and cheaper nutrients will not be adequate The real challenge is to realign cultivation with price signals that reflect the surpluses and deficits in different items For thiswe need to de-risk the cultivation of critical items that are in short supply This would ensure that the farmers are willing and able to use better inputs Some policy imperatives follow For onewe need a step-jump in investments both in food processing and in supply chain for perishables Whether this could come through higher foreign investment or greater domestic resources is for our policymakers to figure out The marketing apparatus for items such as pulses and vegetables has to be revamped so that producers are assured both of a minimum return on production and a share in higher revenues when prices move up To achieve thiswe need a more effective procurement system (based on the MSP) for items like pulses where government purchase can play a role in mitigating risk We also need private trade to develop alongside For fruitsvegetables and milk we need large corporate participation in the post-harvest supply chain This would break the current monopoly of private tradersreduce the tiers of intermediation and ultimately ensure a better farm gate price for the cultivator There are subtler strategies as well In pulsesfor instancewe need to work on developing varieties with shorter cropping cycles so that they can be grown on the same land as wheat or rice without affecting their cropping cycles This kind of multi-cropping could reduce farmers risks substantiallywhile simultaneously boosting the output of pulses There has been limited success with this in the case of chana and mung Agricultural Price Commission Chairman Ashok Gulati has suggested the possibility of entering into long-term production contracts for pulses with countries like Tanzaniawhich have fallow land and weather and soil conditions conducive to cultivating pulses This will enable us to bridge the domestic supply gap but with some certainty about import prices Whether it is through long-term contracts or purchases in the spot marketwe need to import food items aggressively to bridge the domestic demand-supply gap Some analysts will no doubt raise red flags over what this will do to the current account deficit The way around this problem is not to hold back on imports but instead to export more At around 80 million tonnesthe governments foodgrain stocks are about two and a half times the buffer stocking norms and a large part of this is rotting because of the lack of storage facilities We are literally sitting on a mountain of grain that we can export

symbols Express Photo by Manoj Kumar Top News The boundary wall of Gurgaon’s Bhondsi jail has recently been adorned with art depicting national symbols of the country all painted by inmates lodged inside The wall — 15 feet high and 500 feet wide — now greets officials and visitors with images of the Royal Bengal Tiger the Banyan Tree the Lotus flower and the peacock “We spent close to two months trying to zero in on the theme for the work because we wanted to ensure that it was not contradictory or controversial” said Harinder Singh who was the superintendent of the prison during the period of the project but has been transferred since The wall art was completed under the supervision of India Vision Foundation an NGO that has been conducting art and painting classes for inmates at Bhondsi prison since 2013 operating with the idea that “art therapy” can help in reformation of convicts It was as a result of these classes that the idea of giving inmates a wall to use as a canvas to showcase their work came up “In several prisons art work is done to change the ambience of the facility but the uniqueness here lies in the identity of the artists who have made the paintings Usually artists are hired from outside or students from an art institution are called but here the inmates themselves have done the work” said Monica Dhawan director of India Vision Foundation Deliberations on the theme began in February 2016 and eight inmates all serving life sentences for various crimes started work on the wall in April 2016 under the supervision of Natasha Chadha Bhambri an artist associated with the NGO “Acrylic paint of the best quality was used for the wall art since it has to have the ability to withstand heat rain and other weather conditions The paint is also strong enough to ensure that for the next two years we do not need to do any maintenance or touch-ups After a couple of years however these may be required” said Dhawan “Basic work” on the wall was completed within eight months after which a few weeks were spent in putting the finishing touches The project was finally completed in March this year transforming the mundane brick wall into one

| Updated: December 28 2015 7:58 am Related News Sixteen years ago at the stroke of midnight when the clocks rolled over into the year 2000 computers worldwide were affected by an unexpected bug Y2K readers might recall became a popular name overnight This bug occurred partly due to the practice of representing a year with its last two digits — the year 1998 as x98 1999 as x99 and so on When we entered the new millennium the computers got confused — is x00 the next year 2000 or 1900 Is the year a leap year or not (2000 is but 1900 is not) Moving forward what would x01 x02 etc mean In effect the machines did not anticipate or understand what it meant to move into the next century I think their lack of comprehension was similar to that of my generation Our transition into the next millennium wasn’t smooth Instead of taking just another assured step where all that changed was the date in the homework and classwork columns it was like being swept away by powerful winds and hurled into alien territory The internet of course was the most powerful of these winds of sudden change Not only did it herald an age of information an age of too much information but it also mapped a new world where physical distances had little significance Before we knew it we were in Yahoo chatrooms and Orkut communities debating with like-minded people from around the country if not the world stalking the other sex connecting with estranged friends and befriending strangers In schools we made friends based on accidents — who sat next to us who used the same bus or auto rickshaw Not anymore We were no longer restricted to forming acquaintances based on geographical limitations Age sex location were conversations starters not enders The second of these forces was that of globalisation — the earth becoming a flatland as a renowned economist put it Suddenly we were looking and were compelled to look at ourselves from new vantage points From the outside in We realised we were part of a larger world a living thriving world — unlike the dead ones on the pages of an atlas — where many kinds of people and cultures existed The amoral Manhattan lifestyle of How I Met Your Mother and Friends for instance fascinated us and the cute adventurous and uninhibitedly fantastical life of children in Japanese manga gave flight to our imaginations Some of us were intrigued by war movies and through them deliberated on the lasting impacts of the Holocaust imperialism and the quest for democracy in the Middle East And others like me came to terms with the fact that Nagraj Super Commando Dhruv and their nemeses weren’t wholly original conceptions nor were some of our favourite Bollywood flicks In the light of this new knowledge this exposure we found ourselves questioning our identity and discovered as a result the power to redefine ourselves The power to constantly unlearn and relearn Once we were away from home — in the hostels of our colleges in metros for jobs on the road while travelling — we didn’t have to carry on the narratives that were handed to us We didn’t have to behave strictly as a Baniya or Brahmin as a “north Indian” or “south Indian” or “Bong” a native or non-native to a city as “upper middle class” or “lower middle class” or even as a “decent girl” or a “suitable boy” We could be anything For good or bad we became and aspired to be rootless A branch cut off from the vine The third and an oft overlooked factor is our physical coming of age I was 13 years old when the famous Y2K bug made headlines I was smart enough to know that the naked pictures of celebrity actors on a certain popular Indian site were fake but I was naive and still fixated with them I had three email IDs — on AOL USAnet and netfunducom (for which I also received personalised visiting cards) — and I had no clue what to do with them Kids my age were driven by curiosity Unconcerned about potential harm and unmindful of benefits we explored this other world and escaped the one in which we were restricted by default In which everyone is restricted by default And look where we are now As a result of our rootlessness we have become a generation of wanderers We switch companies cities partners We become atheist one year practising Buddhist the next never taking our religious identities too seriously (in the last few months there has been evidence to the contrary but I would like to continue to hold this belief) Our cricket icons retired one by one — and we looked for new heroes new franchises new sports We have been in constant flux But reason has found its way with us and we understand — the preparation for MBA IAS bank entrance exams has made us understand — what it means to read write and think critically So that we score well in general knowledge and awareness sections we have read editorials of newspapers and award-winning contemporary literature The practice has enriched us without our knowledge We have also spent hours on Wikipedia and are well aware of all the isms and logies from Marxism to Scientology from Taoism to Freudian psychology We have been sufficiently enchanted and disillusioned with them in turns Our rootlessness has eventually become the fountainhead of our liberation The year-end is a time to look back and reflect And as I do that I wonder if the ripples of the effect of that turbulent hurling into this century can still be felt I am an electronics engineer who left a well-paying (and “prestigious”) PSU job to embrace writing and poverty I am still unmarried I have still not bought an apartment or a car not rooted myself to a new place But I am aware of the power of redefining myself and the efficacy of this power That’s where I suppose I find solace Parikh 29 is author of ‘Manan’ For all the latest Opinion
