Manipulators of news

first_imgDear Editor,The social, economic and political situation has been steadily deteriorating since the PNC-led APNU regime took power. Almost all sections of the population have been complaining bitterly about the rapid decline in economic activities and the fall in standards of social services.Moreover, there has been noticeable decline in our politics, as the regime has reverted to the use of old, undemocratic methods that the PNC used while in government up to 1992.The atmosphere of great freedom that existed under the PPP/C Administration has almost disappeared. More and more people are expressing fear of the loss of freedom, and a feeling of trepidation is gripping the population. Even some of the civilian members of this regime caution some of their friends to be careful how they speak on the phone.The institution that was established to fight organized crime – the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) – is now being used to harass political opponents of the regime. The arrest of former Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall, has been the most recent in a long list of political and racial witch-hunting.The sharp deterioration is so glaring that it is impossible to deny. As a result, the defenders of the regime, government spokespersons, have changed their tactics.While being forced to admit that things are tough due to the regime’s poor performance – like the rampant corruption taking place, etc – the apologists are now saying, “Yes, this is true, but it was worse under the PPP/C Government”.This is a desperate attempt to manipulate the views and distort our most recent history.On Sunday, April 30, 2017, Adam Harris spoke about corruption. To prove his point, he alluded to the more than forty forensic audits done, and went on to say about how it unearthed mammoth corruption.No massive corruption was found. Indeed, the audits have actually exposed the APNU and AFC’s lies and their exaggeration of massive corruption. It is that embarrassment that is now fuelling the regime’s attack by using the arms of the state and their propaganda machine to attack the officials of the PPP/C Government.As an example, let me point out that they sensationally made public via the media that former Permanent Secretary at the Office of the President, Omar Shariff, had billions in the bank. Yet the worst they could do was charge his wife with the frivolous offence of not submitting several documents to the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA).Harris also spoke about crime, and pointed out that the rate is falling. Well, that is very debatable. Most people on the Corentyne and West Demerara feel that crime is escalating.Harris, in pointing to the crime wave that occurred in 2002, studiously avoided to say that the criminal gangs were given direct support by the PNC/APNU leaders, and several others in the AFC. Indeed, it was only those leaders of the PNC/APNU who could have moved freely in Buxton after the 2002 jail break, when five murderers were politically protected by the PNC/APNU clique. We must not forget that one of the candidates on the PNC/R list for 2001 elections had joined the gang as well.How can we forget that PNC helped to organize the funerals of those criminals?In one case, they even draped the coffin with the Guyana flag – a clear act of desecration of our national flag.To prove the direct links with the PNC/APNU, let me refer you to the infamous conversation between Winston Felix, then Commissioner of Police and now Minister of Citizenship, and Basil Williams, now Attorney General, immediately after the ‘Fine Man’ gang had killed eight persons on the East Bank of Demerara and created terror in the Agricola/Eccles area. In the exposed conversation, Williams was thanking Felix for diverting attention from the PNC, which is a clear indication of the political links. No one can now harbour any doubt about the political links to criminal gangs.It should also be noted that while the PNC (now APNU) gave full support to the gangs, they were at the same time merciless in their attacks on the police. When Leon Fraser was brutally murdered, they wore red and were rejoicing at his funeral.Harris also tried to belittle and distort the expansion of the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, a PPP/C-initiated project. In so doing, he is hiding the fact that this regime has changed what was a turn-key project to facilitate the contractor.Now we will get an inferior product than what was originally contracted for.Maybe a Commission of Inquiry (CoI) is needed to find out why a turn-key contract was broken to facilitate the contractor, and not the country.It is not just sad, but downright dangerous for such distortions to be taking place. This behaviour will accelerate the drift towards authoritarian rule. And the Kaieteur News will eventually regret this dangerous role that they are playing.Already we see the Police Force being de-professionalized and being used as a political tool of the APNU. We are also witnessing attempts to undermine the independence of the Judiciary, as the regime constantly attacks the courts.There has not been a word said in the Kaieteur News about all the innocent public servants who have been dismissed only because of their race. Instead, the Government media and the Kaieteur News are being used to pursue personal vendettas — throw mud at people; provide no proof of corruption and wrong-doings. In the process, they are destroying lives, but they seem to get a maniacal delight in committing these nasty acts.This behaviour, while in the immediate and short runs may give the authors and owners some satisfaction, in the long run, it would do us no good. It is facilitating the abuse of power and fuelling massive corruption, which — under this regime as it was in an earlier PNC regime — is becoming a way of life.We know where this is heading. We have seen it all before. It is history repeating itself. It spells a falling economy, dwindling social services, and a growing dictatorship with fear as a tool of rule. This is my view. What is yours?Sincerely,Donald Ramotarlast_img read more

In his final NBA game, Dwyane Wade drops triple double for Miami Heat

(AP Photo/Kathy Willens)NEW YORK— Dwyane Wade was hurting, sitting on the training table trying to get enough treatment to get him on the floor one last time.A couple hours later, he looked like a guy capable of playing well beyond what was the final night of his career.ADVERTISEMENT But that was secondary to a final chance to celebrate Wade, the three-time NBA champion who was ending his 16th and final NBA season.He was loudly cheered from the moment he emerged alone from the tunnel for pregame layups. Fans — egged on at one point by Paul and Anthony — chanted “We want Wade! We want Wade!” when he was on the bench, even though the 37-year-old guard had played a season-high 35 minutes Tuesday and coach Erik Spoelstra warned before the game that it probably wouldn’t be that way again.But there was no keeping Wade down for long. It took him a little bit to get going, as Jarrett Allen added Wade to the list of stars whose shots he’s blocked this season — a list that included James.“I loved seeing CP and Melo over there getting the crowd going to get Dwyane back in there and Dwyane comes from the old-school NBA,” Spoelstra said. “That was pre-load management, so we were not load managing him tonight and I was not talking to my sports scientist whether he could go, even though I walked in and saw him on that training table an hour before the game and he did not look fit to go, at all. But he’s cut from a different cloth.”The Heat hoped the final game would matter, but the Nets and Orlando Magic had clinched spots over the weekend to leave only one spot left coming into the last week. Miami was eliminated from contention for it despite its victory Tuesday.“For me, I’m happy with this season,” Wade said. “Unfortunately for our organization and our team we weren’t able to put ourselves in a position to win enough games to be in the playoffs, but for what I wanted for this season, I’m happy to say that I completed that.”TIP-INSHeat: Haslem finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds. … Wade passed Elgin Baylor (23,149 points) to move into 29th place on the NBA’s career list.

Anthony, who helped persuade Wade to return this season, didn’t play long this season before parting ways with Houston, so Wade gave his final one to him.“I didn’t get an opportunity to play against Melo this year and exchange jerseys with him,” Wade said. “That was a missing piece out of this whole season, so everything worked out great for him being here, for me having an opportunity to give him my jersey.”___UP NEXTHeat: The offseason.Nets: A first-round playoff matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READcenter_img Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Sarah Geronimo’s ‘Tala’ enters Billboard’s world digital song sales chart He played 36 minutes, dribbling out the shot clock the final time he had the ball before checking out with 10 seconds remaining. Then it was time for a lengthy postgame celebration on the court with teammates and friends.“The man went out with a triple-double. Don’t let that go unnoticed. He had a triple-double,” All-Star D’Angelo Russell said. “He is a guy that paved the way for a lot of us. He’s been with that franchise for that long period of time. He’s Mr. Miami.”Russell had 21 points on seven 3-pointers for the Nets, who will face the third-seeded Philadelphia 76ers beginning this weekend in their first postseason appearance since 2015, one that seemed unlikely when they were 8-18 in December. But they went 34-22 from there for their first winning record since going 44-38 in 2013-14 — when they were knocked out by Wade’s Heat in the second round.“Special night,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “Pretty amazing season so far.”The game mattered only to the Nets, who quickly ended any fears of finishing seventh and having to face the Toronto Raptors in the first round.ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college ‘Duterte legacy:’ Gov’t boasts achievements so far Tim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’ View commentslast_img read more

We are in it to win, declare Kabras ahead of Kabeberi

first_imgHead coach Charles Cardovillis has said the changes are testament enough of his side’s ambition after missing out on the Main Cup in the season opening Driftwood Sevens in Mombasa last weekend, finishing the leg fifth.“We are in it to win it and the players we have sent out to do duty tells the story. They bring in loads of experience and firepower and it is good to have them in the team. We looked at some of the weaknesses we had in Mombasa and we strengthened,” Cardovillis noted.“We had some problems with our half-line which was missing a bit of firepower and the players who are coming in will give us that plus a bit of dynamism,” the tactician further explained.Kabras RFC in action at the Driftwood Sevens in Mombasa on September 2 2017.Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUKabras are in what on paper looks like an easy pool with Mombasa surprise package Mean Machine, Strathmore and newly promoted Makueni RFC.He is however, cautious on his approach and has warned his players to take each game with the same measure of seriousness, his target being a minimum of the Main Cup semis.“We saw what machine did last week and it shows you that you can’t take any team for granted. The pool is very unpredictable and everyone there can show up and surprise,” the former Kenya Harlequin director of rugby added.The coach is pleased with how his team has performed so far, acknowledging they played attractive rugby in the opening leg except for a few gremlins.He has urged his players to ensure they perform well on game ones, something he says let them down in Mombasa.“How we start each day is very important. Our first games in Mombasa on both days were not good.

Molina cools off annex `fever’

first_imgGeorge Kitaoka, a longtime resident on Cameta Drive, said he is upset that his home could be annexed. Others at a recent community meeting said they did not want to be part of Rosemead and that existing services were adequate. “Just because one council member has an idea, it takes a majority to decide whether that is the right thing to do,” Low said this week. On Wednesday, Molina’s office tried to put those residents at ease. “Rosemead City officials have had informal discussions with my staff about the process of annexation, and how I would view proposals,” Molina said in a letter to the residents. “If an annexation proposal is submitted, you will be informed, and your opinion will be vital to me.” While some area residents said they were against annexation, High Pine Street resident Paul Benavidez said he supports it. “It would help us and give us lights on our street,” Benavidez said. “I don’t see what’s the problem in incorporating.” Field Deputy Marcia Guzman said the supervisor would not support a plan if residents objected. “There is no formal proposal,” Guzman said. She added that annexation is a public process. jennifer.mclain@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2477 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Gareth Southgate explains decision to hand Jordan Henderson England captaincy

first_img England caretaker manager Gareth Southgate Gareth Southgate says Jordan Henderson earned the right to replace Wayne Rooney as England captain after successfully stepping out of Steven Gerrard’s shadow at Anfield.The interim manager wants Rooney to remain as national skipper and squad figurehead despite dropping him for Tuesday’s game in Slovenia, but it is Henderson who will lead the side out for the first time in Ljubljana.The 26-year-old took the Liverpool armband from local hero Gerrard when the latter left the club in 2015 and has been impressive in the role.And that was not lost on Southgate as he chose the midfielder ahead of other candidates such as Joe Hart and Gary Cahill.“What stood out for me is that he has taken over as captain at a club where he has succeeded one of the most iconic players in English footballers of all time,” said Southgate.“That would have been a difficult challenge for him and he has matured from that. He has shown great leadership skills with his club.“He is used to being captain which is important. He has got a voice and an opinion within this group and he has got his clear ideas of what we need to work on.“It was not an easy decision because there are other senior players in that dressing room but he has captained a big football club and is used to that responsibility so it is the right decision for me.”Rooney, who volunteered to take the press conference at Southgate’s side despite being excused duty, offered his own tribute to Henderson.“I think Jordan’s a fantastic leader,” he said.“He’s taken an incredibly difficult job from Steven Gerrard and he’s really grown into that position. He’s a fantastic player with great leadership qualities.“He deserves his chance tomorrow night to captain England. I’m sure for him it’s a really proud moment and his family as well.”The other beneficiary of Rooney’s demotion is Tottenham anchorman Eric Dier.Dier, who was arguably England’s best performer at Euro 2016, offers greater defensive qualities than Rooney and Southgate explained a simple tactical analysis helped make up his mind.“I think it’s clear that we’re talking about two different profiles of player – different attributes, different skills,” he said.“That’s entirely the basis of the decision, we’re away from home, it’s a different tactical challenge…so as the coach you’ve got to look at what the right set up is for that game.“We have looked at how Slovenia play and when I looked at that midway through last week I knew in my mind the profile of midfield that we need for this game.“In no way is it a reflection of Wayne’s performance (against Malta) on Saturday. We were very pleased with what he did on Saturday. (He) played with great tactical discipline, saw a lot of the ball and dictated the game.” 1last_img read more

FastPass+ Availability at Walt Disney World – Update 2

first_imgShare This! This is the third blog post on day-of FastPass+ availability. The first blog post was in 2014, and the second in 2015. In the three-plus years since FastPass+ was introduced at Walt Disney World, we have been tracking the availability of FastPass+ reservations. The last major change in the FastPass+ process is the that you can reserve additional FastPass+ reservations through Disney’s MyDisneyExperiance app. This is a significant improvement over having to stand in line at in-park kiosks. This also means that additional FastPass+ reservations are being grabbed up by more guests. For FastPass+ overview, tips, and advice go to https://touringplans.com/walt-disney-world/fastpass.By using the FastPass+ system, we and others have observed that reservation slots can come and go quickly. The tables below show the average time when availability runs out. It is possible that a FastPass+ reservation may pop up, but it is unlikely. The gray cells show the number of days in advance that FastPass+ reservations sell out. A reasonable assumption would be that as crowds increase, the time when FastPass+ reservations run out would decrease. This holds up for the headliner attractions, but not so much for the lower tiered attractions. For the lower tiered attractions, the FastPass+ depletion time is more a function of when the park closes than the crowd level. The data also support the theory that Disney holds back some FastPass+ reservations for day-of guests: even if you see no availability in advance, you may find that availability once you’re in the park.Just like dining reservations, a FastPass+ reservation may be available but it may not be a desirable time. A 1 am Dumbo FastPass+ reservation is not going to be very useful if your family is sleeping. The earlier you make a  reservation the more options will be available.A handful of attractions has little to no same day availability. The good news is that almost all attractions have some availability a few days before your visit. Frozen Ever After and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train are the only attractions that sell out very early. It can be very difficult to get FastPass+ reservations for these two attractions 30-days prior to your visit.Pandora – The World of AvatarPandora opens May 27, 2017, and there will be two new attractions. They will have FastPass+ queues. Guests can only choose one of the two attractions to make an advance FastPass+ reservation. The initial data is showing that Avatar Flight of Passage is selling out before Na’vi River Journey. The attractions are not selling out as fast as Frozen Ever After or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. If you can make FastPass+ reservations 30 to 60-days prior to your visit you should be able to get a Pandora attraction FastPass+ reservation.last_img read more

Crowdsourcing to tackle SA water leaks

first_img25 March 2013Multinational technology giant IBM has launched a crowdsourcing project to help capture, share and analyze information about the water distribution system in South Africa.The project, called “WaterWatchers,” is driven by a new mobile phone application and SMS capability that will enable South African citizens to report water leaks, faulty water pipes and general conditions of the country’s water infrastructure for 30 days starting from World Water Day, 22 March.“Every update will provide vital data points to an aggregated ‘WaterWatchers’ report to create a single view of the issues challenging South Africa’s water distribution system,” IBM said in a statement on Friday.The free app, which is currently available for Android and available for download at www.ibmwaterwatchers.co.za, and the SMS capability together provide an easy way for anyone to collect and report issues on local waterways and pipes to a centralized portal.After taking a photo and answering three simple questions about the particular water canal or pipe, the data will be uploaded in real-time to a central database. After 30 days, the data will be analyzed and aggregated into a meaningful “leak hot spot” map for South Africa.“This project is about analyzing use, predicting demand and managing the future of our country’s water,” said IBM South Africa Smarter Planet executive Ahmed Simjee.“It’s a unique exercise in crowdsourcing for South Africa, and we encourage every person to become a ‘citizen scientist’ – to engage with the environment and help create a big picture map of our water leaks and issues,” Simjee said“By enabling countless individuals to gather and submit data, WaterWatchers represents a new kind of data aggregation, analytics and visualization for water planners in South Africa – and is exactly the kind of ‘big data’ challenge IBM excels at solving.”Under-spending on water in South Africa has seen the Department of Water Affairs increase spending by 20% to R9-billion (U$900-million) in 2011-2012, while spending on water sector management increased by 28.8% year-on-year over the same period, and spending on water infrastructure management rose by 13.2% year-on-year.But the pressure of urban population influx continues to place more strain on the country’s ageing water infrastructure. According to the 2011 Census, 93% of South African households had access to safe water in 2010 – but only 45% of those with access to water actually had it in their homes.According to IBM, a WaterWatchers report will be made available to local municipalities, water control boards and other water system stakeholders once the data had been filtered appropriately. This could help local municipalities vizualise and prioritize improvements to city water infrastructure.“This project is a natural extension of the work we have done to address non-revenue water in Tshwane with IBM, and as the capital city we will lead the roll-out of this program nationally,” said Tshwane Executive Mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa. “We challenge other cities to join the initiative and help manage this precious resource as best as we can.”IBM says it believes the WaterWatchers platform holds huge potential for similar applications that can be used to monitor and report on just about any aspect of one’s environment: city services, wildlife, noise pollution, air quality, weather and more.“Interest in IBM’s Smarter Planet strategy to transform growing cities and address massive urbanisation in the South Africa has grown rapidly,” IBM said. “The City of Johannesburg has strategically addressed its 2030 vision and partnered with IBM to develop a roadmap for smarter public safety.“The City of Tshwane has led the way in addressing water challenges, addressing ever increasing water scarcity and the requisite water conservation with a nine-point plan developed by IBM Corporate Service Corps in 2011.”Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Bafana make it South Africa 1, Spain 0

first_img20 November 2013Bafana Bafana shocked Spain 1-0 at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Tuesday evening, with Bernard Parker netting a superb 56th-minute winner. It was South Africa’s first win over the world’s number one ranked football team.The defeat was only the second that Spain, ranked first in the world since 2008, have suffered in the past two years. Their only other loss was to Brazil in the Confederations Cup earlier this year. During that time the reigning European and World Cup champions have also recorded 25 wins and five draws.“Thanks to the coach for having faith in the players. He has given us his belief and his faith, and we’re giving him what he expects from us, and that’s a good performance and a win,” Bafana captain Itumeleng Khune said in a television interview after the match.‘Tactics were spot-on’“His tactics were spot-on tonight. We planned a lot for Spain. People thought we didn’t stand a chance and we beat them,” Khune said.Khune thanked the supporters at the match and used the occasion to call for greater support for local football. “This is what we want to see in our local football, people coming here and supporting the local teams and supporting local football because we are on the same level as the European players, and we can do better than them. If we can beat the world champions, who is there not to beat?”“It’s a fantastic result,” coach Gordon Igesund said.“I’m so pleased that we played a friendly like this because they are the world champions. You saw their attitude on the field. They were fighting for their lives out there as well, and I’m just pleased we were able to give the people something to think about going forward.“Tonight our game plan was fantastic. Our players were fantastic. They executed tactically what we wanted to do.”Spain, as they do against every opponent, dominated possession, but they rarely threatened as the South African team worked hard as a unit to disrupt the flow of the visitors’ attack“We allowed them to have the ball in certain areas. When they got wide, we made sure they couldn’t get a cross in, but had to play back,” Igesund explained. “The guys executed [the game plan] well and I’m so pleased for them.”Playing with discipline at the back, Bafana caught Spain offside time and again. David Villa had the ball in the back of the net as early as the fourth minute after being put through by Andres Iniesta, but he was caught in the offside trap and the strike was disallowed.CrossbarMan of the match Khune prevented Pedro getting a shot off after was picked out by Xabi Alonso, but only a minute later La Roja came close to going behind after Bernard Parker and Oupa Manyisa combined before Manyisa’s shot took a deflection off a defender and struck Iker Casillas’ crossbar. Parker, who turned in a superb performance, tested Casillas two minutes later, but the goalie was up to the challenge.With half-an-hour played, Fernando Llorente failed to find the target with an open header.Just before the break, Bongani Khumalo was just wide of the goal with a header from a corner delivered by Parker.Substitute Siphiwe Tshabalala set up Tokelo Rantie with a fine pass early in the second half, but Rantie’s finish lacked composure and was well wide.Nacho Monreal then saw a gap quickly closed down by Khune before Bafana took the lead in the 56th minute with a delightful goal.GoalTokelo Rantie won possession on the left and delivered a cross along the ground towards Bernard Parker, who cleverly left the ball for Kamohelo Mokotjo. The dummy drew the defender towards Mokotjo, who one-timed it directly into Parker’s path. Victor Valdez, on for Casillas, sprinted off of his line to try to close down the angle. Parker, though, chipped the ball over the goalkeeper with his left foot. Valdez got a slight touch on it, but it wasn’t enough and the ball crossed the goal line despite the desperate efforts of Monreal to keep it out.When Valdez later went down with a calf injury, there were brief angry scenes between the Spanish players and South Africa’s coach Gordon Igesund because Spain had used the maximum allowable six substitutes. A decision was made, however, to allow Pepe Reina to replace the Barcelona man in goal.The crowd, interestingly, was relatively quiet, not celebrating their advantage, but wary that the game was far from over.Counter-attackVicente del Bosque’s charges pushed hard in search of an equaliser, but still South Africa’s defence held firm, and the world champions were almost caught out by a swift South African counter-attack.Parker put Rantie clean through down the middle, with space to run and the ability to cut to either side of the goal. Rantie should have scored, but Reina did superbly to race out, make himself big, and block the shot.With the game well into an additional five minutes of time, Napoli defender Raul Albiol got off a shot from close range, but Khune athletically knocked it away, much to the relief of the crowd.The final whistle sounded and vuvuzelas blared once more as Bafana Bafana supporters celebrated one of the South African national football team’s finest nights.Sounding a note of caution, Igesund said: “We’re not going to get carried away. We’ve got a lot of work to do. We know that, but we’re on the right track. I’m very pleased for the players and I’m pleased for everybody and especially for the supporters because they needed something like this.”“We’ve got a terrific group of players,” midfielder Dean Furman weighed in. The squad is gelling all the time. We’re coming together and we’re getting stronger, and I think tonight we’ve shown what we can do against the best team in the world.”last_img read more

Investing in Your Career

first_imgCollins has over 23 years of loss prevention and retail experience with Sears, Old Navy, and her current employer, Petco. After beginning her career as a sales associate, she’s held many roles, including store manager, loss prevention manager, corporate investigator, and the most challenging role, mother of three. Collins holds a degree in criminal justice.Why did you decide to pursue your LPC certification?While preparing my annual performance review for this past year, I decided obtaining the LPC would be a great objective for 2017. I truly believe the only person responsible for your continued growth and development is you. There is no better investment than one that provides both personal growth and professional development.- Sponsor – Was the course work what you expected?Yes, the course work is challenging and requires dedicated study time. It covers most areas relevant to the loss prevention field, and I enjoyed the background and historical information that was provided; I felt it added relevance to the process.Talk about the process of going through the course work and taking the exam.Working my way through the course work was initially a little more challenging than I expected. It really forced me to go back and review subjects I was not as familiar with or have not had as much experience with. Commitment to the training materials will prepare you for the actual exam. However, being able to apply your learnings in a practical application will be critical to a successful outcome on the final exam. I found it most helpful to look over all of the material first, take the chapter quizzes to determine what areas I needed additional focus on, and then study until I could pass each chapter exam 100 percent.Looking at your own personal background and knowledge, what information in the course helped you the most?While I have been exposed to almost all of the subject material provided, I would say there were areas that I did not have the depth of knowledge required to pass the test without the provided study materials. This certification requires a deeper dive into all operational areas impacting the loss prevention field.What was the most eye-opening information that was part of the curriculum?For me, I benefited a lot from the accounting and logistics material.

Latest Tax Briefing Provides Update on Affordable Care Act Developments

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportDevelopments have continued at a fast pace over the past year on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) (P.L. 111-148).

Market reform transition relief largely expired in 2015, but transition relief is still available under some circumstances. Marketplace exchange rules have been tightened somewhat to reduce the availability of special enrollment periods.Wolters Kluwer has prepared a Tax Briefing on all these recent ACA development.

Chelsea’s Antonio Conte taking season ‘step by step’ ahead of Manchester City test

first_imgPremier League leaders Chelsea are focused on getting results in their remaining nine games as they fight for the title, instead of dwelling on Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace, manager Antonio Conte said.Chelsea suffered their second loss in 10 league games, and their first home defeat in the league since September. The loss cut their lead at the top of the table to seven points after second-placed Tottenham Hotspur defeated Burnley 2-0.”There are nine games to play and we have to think step by step,” Conte told British media.”At the end (of the season), if we deserve to win the title, we will be very happy…When you lose this type of game, in your mind you try to apply a lot of questions. But it’s very difficult to find a reply to this result.”Chelsea host fourth-placed Manchester City on Wednesday. Their last home win against the Manchester side in the league was in 2013.”They (Man City) have a really strong squad but I think it’s right to think about ourselves, to go game by game,” the Italian manager said. “In England, every game is very tough, whether the name of your opponent is City or another team.”City drew 2-2 against sixth-placed Arsenal on Sunday and will be hoping to end their three-game winless streak at Stamford Bridge.last_img read more

IPL 2018, RR vs KKR: Rajasthan eye 3rd straight win, Kolkata look to go top

On the other hand, Kolkata have the opportunity to move to the top position in the league table with a win.After losing the season opener Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royals have turned it around with back-to-back wins. They beat Delhi Daredevils by 19 runs in a rain-truncated encounter and then travelled away to post a convincing 19-run victory over star-studded Royal Challengers Bangalore.The undisputed star of the game was Sanju Samson who hit a blistering 45-ball 92 and Royals would expect him to fire again. They were able to iron out few of their flaws. Royals’ batting clicked with Samson leading the charge and skipper Ajinkya Rahane too making a useful contribution. Their bowling too could sustain the pressure of onslaught by big hitters like Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. If Kolkata Knight Riders win, they will go on top of the points table. (BCCI)Kolkata began their campaign with a big win against RCB but then lost two games on trot against Chennai Super Kings and SRH.

Don’t Like the Answer You’re Getting? Change the Question

first_imgAs the volunteer coordinator for Gift of Life Michigan, Kim Zasa sent volunteers to church fairs and festivals in the hope that people would want to become organ donors. Although she had 800 volunteers attending countless events, only 11% of Michigan’s residents were organ donors. Today that number is about 33%.So what changed? How did Gift of Life Michigan recruit so many new donors?According to a recent story on NPR, responses changed when Kim convinced the state to have DMV clerks ask customers, “Would you like to be an organ donor?” Putting your ask—and your resources—in the right place at the right time is the key to getting the results you want!1. Determine what’s not working—and be willing to experiment. Kim had an army of volunteers at her disposal who were willing to drive long distances for a cause they believed in. When she didn’t see the results she wanted, she took action. Is there an area of your nonprofit that isn’t seeing the results you’d like? Don’t just assume things will improve. Determine what’s working and what’s not, and then brainstorm about what you can do differently.2. Analyze how you’re using your resources.Instead of sending her volunteers on road trips, Kim put them to work in other ways and employed stationary DMV employees to make the ask. These clerks regularly saw almost the entire adult population of the state, so they were well positioned to speak to more people than Kim’s volunteers were.Are you using the resources you have—both time and money—to their full capacity? Are volunteers solving a pain point for you and helping you in the most beneficial way? If not, how can you modify their tasks to be more effective for your cause?3. Put your question in the right place at the right time.Instead of making the ask in places where people weren’t already making decisions beyond ice cream or cotton candy, Kim combined the ask with an established routine. If someone wanted to become a donor at a festival, they had to take multiple steps and time out of their entertainment to sign up. Making the ask at the DMV made it easy for potential donors to say yes, with no extra action required.Are you positioning your request in the best way possible? Does saying yes require multiple steps that make it less likely you’ll see the result you want? For instance, when you ask for donations online, do your supporters first have to click through multiple pages, or is it simply one click and done? Think about how you can adjust how, when, and where you’re making an ask to better your odds of getting through to your target audience. Have you tried something similar?

Lewandowski even better than on TV – Coutinho

first_imgBayern Munch new boy Philippe Coutinho has said his team-mate Robert Lewandowski is even more impressive in person than on television.Lewandowski scored a hat-trick in the Bavarian club’s win over Schalke on Saturday, following on from a double in their first game, which was a disappointing 2-2 draw with Hertha Berlin.Five goals in his first two games is a record for the prolific Poland international forward, and no player has scored so many in the first two matches of a Bundesliga season since Roy Makaay, also for Bayern, in 2005-06.

Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Coutinho, who completed a loan move to Bayern this week after a disappointing spell in Barcelona, came on as a 57th minute substitute and was on the field as Lewandowski completed his treble.“He’s incredible, just world-class,” the Brazil international told reporters after his debut.“It’s incredible, the way he trains. I’ve been here a week and watching him up close he’s so much better than you think on TV.“He had a great game today, a great hat-trick and he deserves it.”The treble was the ninth of the Poland international’s Bundesliga career, and his torrid start to the season does not look like letting up.Bayern’s next opponents are Mainz and the 31-year-old Lewandowski has 14 goals in 14 appearances against them.The defending Bundesliga champions, who have won seven titles in a row, needed the win as they are expected to be pushed hard by Borussia Dortmund this year.Their surprise draw at home with Hertha handed the early initiative to Dortmund, who won their first game 5-1 over Augsburg.They heaped more pressure on Bayern too, winning 3-1 over Koln on Friday night to open up a five-point gap over their rivals in the fledgling season.The failure to win the opening game may have spurred Bayern on to capture Coutinho.There was a need for attacking reinforcements after Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben left the club at the end of the 2018-19 season. Their first target was reported to be Manchester City’s Leroy Sane, but no deal could be done before Sane suffered a serious knee injury.Instead they opted to rescue Coutinho from Barcelona, where he has struggled to fit in after a £142 million transfer from Liverpool.last_img read more

De Gea fires warning to Man Utd stars ahead of West Ham clash

first_imgDavid De Gea has warned Manchester United that they need to be much more switched on against West Ham to avoid a repeat of last season’s 3-1 defeat to the Hammers.The Red Devils, who were managed by Jose Mourinho at the time, were comfortably beaten by Manuel Pellegrini’s side – a result that meant they’d suffered their worst start to a league campaign in 29 years.And De Gea is aware of the threats posted by the Londoners heading into Sunday’s latest Premier League meeting, urging his team-mates to be ready to go from the off.

We also want to show that’s what we’re here for, going away to difficult grounds and going there for the three points.De Gea also saluted the role that the United supporters play in helping lift the team, adding: “They are vitally important to us. Our fans that follow us away from home are just incredible.”Sometimes it’s just like we are playing at home in those away fixtures! It’s amazing. It helps us all tremendously down there on the pitch, we can always feel the warmth from our fans and that is hugely important to us.”The Spain international could face compatriot Pablo Fornals at the London Stadium and he expects that the former Villarreal star still will be a big player for West Ham, despite him having only made one Premier League start so far this season.”I know him from the national team, we’ve been called up together in the same squad once or twice. He’s a quality player and I think he can contribute very well for West Ham. He really showed what he could do at Villarreal and he has a lot of talent and he’s a top player.”West Ham centre-back Issa Diop played in the 3-1 win over the Red Devils last season and he is urged his team-mates to put in a similar performance, insisting that with the quality in their squad they can beat anyone on their day.”We played a very good game against them last season. It was our first win at home last season, and a very good moment for us,” he told the Hammers’ official club website.”Sunday’s going to be a different game, so we have to try to do the same thing as last year. We have to play our football and not think about Manchester United.”We have a very good team and can beat anyone, so we are confident. In the Premier League every game is difficult, but we are ready for this game. I think if we play our football, we’re a team who can do anything.”last_img read more

Hodgson praises Sterling ‘in the hope he’ll play very badly’

first_imgCrystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has hailed Raheem Sterling’s development on and off the pitch, but added a tongue-in-cheek hope that the praise will affect the winger’s performance.Hodgson was the England manager who gave Sterling his debut when he was a teenager playing for Liverpool. He has gone on to become a key member of Gareth Southgate’s national team and a major contributor to back-to-back Premier League titles for Manchester City.The ex-Liverpool boss says that Sterling’s potential as a player was always obvious, and that his development off the pitch was admirable, before adding his cheeky caveat.

Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career “He was always a fantastic midfielder, a very hard worker, made good runs most of the time.

Of course, he is playing in a team that is creating lots of chances so when he gets in the right areas he is able to score goals.”On this subject too, I must add that his maturity as a person has been really fascinating to watch.”All of the responsibility he has accepted and not just as a Manchester City player but shouldering a heavy burden with the racism and the attention that is being paid to this racism problem that we have.“I heap praise on him in the hope he’ll repay me by playing very badly.”Raheem Sterling Roy Hodgson EnglandHodgson knows that if his team defeat Sterling’s they will move above them in the table.As a result of their good start to the season and the fact they beat City last season, Hodgson thinks City will show Palace respect, but is under no illusions that his team will have a tough game.“I don’t know that Pep [Guardiola] needs to be worried about any team,”  the 72-year-old added, “but it would be nice if they felt they needed to show us some respect and certainly for us it’s a good team when you have a team like Manchester City coming to Selhurst Park.“We know we will be stretched to the limit to give them the type of game we like to give them but it’s a challenge and it’s an exciting challenge.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

VAR at its ‘best’ during Man Utd vs Liverpool – Carragher

first_imgJamie Carragher says the controversial decisions during the first half of Liverpool’s match against Manchester United saw “VAR at its best” and was the reason why the technology was introduced.The Merseysiders found themselves on the wrong end of two VAR referrals in quick succession at Old Trafford, with Marcus Rashford’s goal allowed following a review before Sadio Mane’s equaliser was chalked off for handball a few minutes later.While Mane’s looked a correct decision given the new regulations regarding handball, the decision to allow Rashford’s goal proved controversial as the Reds claimed Divock Origi was fouled by Victor Lindelof in the build-up.

Are Chelsea this season’s Ajax? Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Time for another transfer? Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was furious at the decision and remonstrated with the fourth official, before being seen talking animatedly with referee Martin Atkinson before the start of the second half.Carragher, though, refused to criticise the VAR technology and instead feels it adds something to the game.Commentating for Sky Sports, the former Liverpool defender said: “It is VAR at its best.“That would be given before and now it’s handball – it shouldn’t be a goal. We can have talking points on VAR and disagree with certain things, especially on that first goal, but that was the reason VAR has been brought in.”Former Liverpool captain Graeme Souness was more forthright in his views and felt the officials made the wrong decision in allowing Rashford’s opener.”I think Lindelof does catch him,” Souness told Sky Sports. “He catches the inside of his left leg and anyway you look at that, it’s a foul. Matip has to do better with his movement, he has an eye on it at one point but he loses him.”There’s definitely contact with Origi and it’s a foul, he’s gone through the back of someone, regardless of his touch.”VAR decision Man Utd vs Liverpool 2019-20Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane accepted the Red Devils may have had a touch of good fortune but felt they deserved it for a spirited first-half performance.”It does catch his [Mane’s] hand. Sometimes you need a few breaks in this game and United have got that, but maybe they’ve earned it,” he told Sky Sports. “They’ve been the best team.”Liverpool are chasing a record-equalling 18th successive Premier League win at Old Trafford, which has drawn comparisons with Arsenal’s trip to Manchester United in October 2005, when Sir Alex Ferguson’s side ended the Gunners’ 49-match unbeaten run.Gary Neville was in the United team that day and believes his old club’s first-half display suggests a repeat result is possible,”This has got that feeling of that Arsenal ‘Invicibles’ game where you get the crowd up, things are happening,” Neville told Sky Sports.“Jurgen Klopp can’t believe it and it will be mayhem in this ground in the second half. Klopp has to get his team into the dressing room and settle them down.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

Mariners snap 6-game skid with 6-2 win over Rangers

first_img Seattle’s last steal of home was by Dustin Ackley in 2012.ROSTER SHUFFLETexas recalled Bird from Triple-A Nashville and designated RHP Jeanmar Gómez for assignment. Gómez had an 8.22 ERA in 16 relief appearances for the Rangers.Seattle claimed RHP Jimmy Cordero off waivers from Toronto and transferred RHP Gerson Bautista to the 60-day injured list to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. Cordero, 27, was designated for assignment by Toronto last week.INJURY REPORTServais had a long list of injury updates and most of them were positive. Second baseman Dee Gordon was diagnosed with a deep bone bruise in his right wrist and not a fracture after seeing a specialist in Florida. Servais said Gordon’s return will likely be determined by how well the wrist can handle swinging and hitting. Gordon said he aggravated the wrist by returning too soon from the initial injury after being hit by a pitch earlier this month.“I thought I was invincible. I am not,” Gordon joked.Mariners infielder Ryon Healy (lower back inflammation) should resume baseball activities in the next few days. Kyle Seager drove in his first run of the season and Smith stole four bases, including three in the eighth — capped by his second career steal of home. Seattle also got solid pitching from Tommy Milone as the Mariners rebounded after being swept by Texas and Oakland on the road.But what everyone wanted to talk about was Vogelbach’s towering homer off reliever Jose Leclerc that found a rare landing spot, one of the few home runs to reach that part of the stadium.Everyone except Vogelbach.“It was just a curveball out over the plate and I was able to ride it out and keep it fair. I was just happy I could drive two runs in,” he said.According to team records through the 2015 season, only two homers had reached that level of the stadium and it was uncertain if any had in the past four seasons. It was Vogelbach’s 15th homer of the season and while it was close to being a foul ball, the home run call stood following a replay review.

(AP Photo/Ted S. Warren) Photo Gallery SEATTLE — Daniel Vogelbach provided a preview of what was to come Monday when he launched a batting practice home run into the upper deck in right field at T-Mobile Park.Batting practice is one thing. Doing it in a game is a rare accomplishment at the 20-year-old stadium.“He did it in BP, third deck, and then followed it up in the game,” Mariners teammate Mallex Smith said. “He’s not a 5 o’clock hitter.”Vogelbach’s mammoth two-run homer in the seventh inning was the highlight of a 6-2 win over the Texas Rangers that snapped Seattle’s six-game losing streak. By TIM BOOTH, Associated Press Seattle pitchers Hunter Strickland (lat) and Felix Hernandez (shoulder) could be throwing off a mound by the end of the week, or early next week. Both have been tossing from beyond 100 feet in recent days, Servais said. Strickland has been out since March 30, and Hernandez has been sidelined since May 12.UP NEXTRangers RHP Adrian Sampson (2-3) was listed as the starter for Tuesday, although the Rangers plan to use Jesse Chavez (0-1) as an opener. Sampson has followed an opener in each of his past two outings.Mariners LHP Marco Gonzales (5-4) hasn’t won since April 25 and is 0-4 with a 4.56 ERA in his last five starts.center_img Share: Mariners snap 6-game skid with 6-2 win over Rangers Milone gives Seattle strong pitching performance 4 Photos “For the ball to go over the top of the foul pole like that, that’s some kind of special power,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said.Seager, activated off the 60-day injured list last weekend, blooped a single to score Smith in the third when Seattle scored a pair. Smith came through an inning later with a sharp single to score J.P. Crawford.Milone (1-1) pitched into the sixth. Logan Forsythe missed a home run by inches and settled for an RBI double in the fourth, and Ronald Guzmán homered on a 1-2 pitch in the fifth. Those were the only costly mistakes by Milone, who allowed four hits and struck out seven.Rangers manager Chris Woodward said he thought an early start time and shadows on the field were a factor. “I think more so for him (Milone) because he is an off-speed guy. He changes speeds, he moves the ball around. Our hitters had a tough time seeing that changeup,” Woodward said.Texas starter Lance Lynn (6-4) struck out 10 and yielded three earned runs in six innings.“I gave up three runs and we lost, so it doesn’t matter how many strikeouts,” Lynn said.SPEED RACERSmith stole home in the eighth when Kyle Bird tried to pick off Mitch Haniger at first base. Smith stole second and third earlier in the inning and had a stolen base in the third. The four steals were a career high and matched a club record.

It’s a new Leaf for former WSU quarterback

first_imgIt’s a new Leaf for former WSU quarterback Ryan Leaf uses his story to help other former NFL players 2 Photos Follow Share: By ROB MAADDI, Associated Press GO Ryan Leaf spent most of his time in prison alone and angry until a military veteran persuaded the former No. 2 overall NFL draft pick to stop self-loathing long enough to help fellow inmates learn to read.Now the once-star college quarterback who is widely considered the biggest bust in league history is helping former players adapt to retirement and hopefully cope far better than he did.Leaf’s personal life spiraled out of control after his pro career ended and his addiction to painkillers led him to spend 32 months in prison after an arrest in 2012. His dramatic turnaround began with a challenge from his prison cellmate who had served in Afghanistan and Iraq.“He got on me one day about how I didn’t understand the value that I had, not only to the men in there but for when I got out and he confronted me on it,” Leaf told The Associated Press. “He suggested we go down to the prison library and help prisoners who didn’t know how to read. Many times somebody tried to help me be constructive and I just pushed them away. I don’t know why in this moment I chose to go. It was begrudgingly. I still envision myself walking down the hallway complaining about it.” But Leaf, wearing his red prison jumpsuit, went anyway. He had no idea helping other men would benefit him.“Watching men in a place where you’re not supposed to show vulnerability be vulnerable and ask for help because they couldn’t read, I was blown away by it and it affected me,” he said. “I realized I was being of service to another human being for the first time in my life and I knew that was going to have to be the foundation of who I was when I got out or nothing was going to change.”So when league executive Tracy Perlman reached out to Leaf this spring with an offer to become an NFL Legends Community coordinator, his career came full circle.“The NFL Legends Community is the epitome of service,” Leaf said. “This isn’t about promoting you anymore. It’s about promoting something bigger than you. And that’s exactly what that young veteran and prison afforded me when I needed it most.” Published: August 1, 2019, 8:34pm Follow The Columbian on Instagramcenter_img Receive latest stories and local news in your email: “I was an ego maniac with a self-esteem problem and that’s what most addicts are like,” Leaf said. “I was a drug addict long before I ever took a drug. I think it was just exacerbated by the fame and the fortune of it all. I was so scared of everybody that I worked so hard to try to be better than everybody else. It didn’t work out. And it’s a humbling thing when you finally have an understanding of who you are.”Leaf got a chance to do something long overdue on Oct. 1, 2017. He had a face-to-face conversation with Chargers owner Alex Spanos. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell invited him to sit in a suite and watch the Chargers play in their third home game after moving from San Diego to Los Angeles.“I was super anxious,” Leaf said. “I was in a suite, so I wasn’t around hecklers who yell out: ‘Loser or bust.’ Donnie Edwards was there guiding me through it and then unknown to me — and I don’t know if this was planned but — Mr. Spanos walked in to say hi to Mr. Goodell. I think he was pretty taken aback when he saw me and I didn’t know I would ever be afforded the opportunity to make amends to Mr. Spanos for my part in my time in San Diego. The opportunity presented itself and I did exactly that. I made my amends to him.“I remember I looked over at Mr. Goodell after I was done and he was just really pleased with how I handled it. You always want to feel part of something and when you’re part of the Legends Community, you feel a part of something. I do believe that relationship (with Spanos) will again come around.” Troy Vincent, the league’s executive vice president of football operations and a five-time Pro Bowl cornerback from 1999-2003, and Perlman were instrumental in launching the NFL Legends Community in 2013. It helps former players stay connected with their teams and offers assistance in a variety of ways — from making sure they get health checks to life after football.Leaf’s first exposure to the Legends came during the week leading up to the 2016 Super Bowl in San Francisco. Each year at the Super Bowl, the group hosts several events and welcomes former players to learn about the programs.“I didn’t consider myself a legend. I felt like a failure,” Leaf said. “So I was a little hesitant, but I went. I walked into the lounge with my wife and immediately I saw three of my former teammates. I saw Donnie Edwards and Chad Pennington, who were both Legends coordinators, and they came right up to me and put their arms around me and made it very clear that I was part of that group.”Leaf was later invited to speak to quarterbacks at the 2017 NFL combine. His group included Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, Mitchell Trubisky, Nathan Peterman and Davis Webb. Ryan Leaf, center, sits in a Cascade County courtroom in Great Falls, Mont., in 2012.

Larry Beckner/The Great Falls Tribune Photo Gallery Share: “When I left, I thought: ‘Wow, this is really great. I hope I get more of an opportunity to work with the Legends,’” he said. “Sure enough, this spring I got an email from Tracy (about) a coordinator position. What an honor, what a grateful blessing that turned out to be because now essentially what I was doing in the recovery world, helping others, I now get to do it at the level that I played. The NFL is really trying to step up by putting this program in place, and I’m really happy to be a part of it.”Perlman praised Leaf for being “transparent” and willing to talk about his mistakes.“He is a really good person and everything he went through made him who he is now and he came out on the other side,” said Perlman, the NFL’s senior vice president of football communications and marketing. “He really wants to help other people and the Legends Community was built specifically to serve players. He’s there to help you. If telling his story helps or if just talking to you on the phone for five minutes, he’s willing to do it.”Leaf finished third in Heisman Trophy voting in 1997 and led Washington State to the Rose Bowl. He was drafted by the San Diego Chargers after Peyton Manning went No. 1 to the Indianapolis Colts in 1998, but he was only 4-14 as a starter in three seasons. He was 0-3 with the Dallas Cowboys in 2001 and finished his four-year career with 14 touchdown passes and 36 interceptions.His arrest in 2012 for breaking into a home in Montana to steal prescription drugs and violating his Texas probation led to prison.

19th Slam for Nadal with his 4th US Open title

first_img NEW YORK — Rafael Nadal’s 19th Grand Slam trophy went from inevitable to suddenly in doubt in a thrill-a-minute U.S. Open final.What had all the makings of a casual crowning morphed into a grueling contest thanks to Nadal’s opponent, Daniil Medvedev, a man a decade younger and appearing in his first major title match. Down by two sets and a break, Medvedev shifted styles, upped his level against a rattled Nadal — and even received an unexpected boost from the Arthur Ashe Stadium spectators.Truly tested for the only time in the tournament, the No. 2-seeded Nadal managed to stop Medvedev’s surge Sunday and hold off his historic comeback bid, pulling out a 7-5, 6-3, 5-7, 4-6, 6-4 victory in 4 hours, 50 minutes of highlight-worthy action and Broadway-worthy drama to collect his fourth championship at Flushing Meadows.“One of the most emotional nights of my tennis career,” said Nadal, who covered his face with his hands while crying when arena video boards showed clips from each of his Slam triumphs. Follow The Columbian on Instagram Rafael Nadal, of Spain, holds up the championship trophy after defeating Daniil Medvedev, of Russia, to win the men’s singles final of the U.S. Open tennis championships Sunday, Sept. 8, 2019, in New York. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa) Photo Gallery By signing up you are agreeing to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. It also, Nadal said, made “this day unforgettable, part of my history.”When the 6-foot-6 Medvedev sensed the loss approaching, he turned into a trickier foe, playing less defensively and more aggressively. He alternated serve-and-volley rushes with a penchant for out-hitting Nadal at the baseline. For a stretch, it felt as if Medvedev simply could not miss, and he finished with a 75-62 edge in winners.That’s the sort of ball-striking Medvedev displayed while going 20-2 during the North American hard-court circuit until Sunday, reaching four finals in a row. But he also switched tactics, winning 22 of 29 serve-and-volley points.“The way that he was able to fight, to change the rhythm of the match, was just incredible,” Nadal said.The Flushing Meadows fans that jeered Medvedev in Week 1 because of his on-court behavior — he trolled his detractors by sarcastically thanking them and telling him their vitriol was why he won — were pulling for him. GO But the 23-year-old from Russia did not go gently into the night. He broke right back to 3-all, then again to claim that set and yet again to end the fourth.“The nerves were so high,” Nadal said. “A crazy match.”Not since 1949 has anyone won a U.S. Open final after trailing by two sets to none. Never before had Medvedev won a five-set match. Only once before had Nadal lost a Grand Slam match after taking the opening two sets.And yet the tension was real.At the very end — or what appeared to be the very end — Nadal couldn’t close it out. After breaking to lead 3-2 in the fifth, in a game Medvedev led 40-love before flubbing an easy forehand, Nadal broke again and served for the championship at 5-2.The way this back-and-forth tale was spun, though, it probably was inevitable that Medvedev would break there. And so he did, because Nadal double-faulted on break point after he was docked a serve for his third time violation of the evening, which elicited loud boos from folks in the stands. “The last three hours of the match have been very, very intense, no?” Nadal said. “Very tough mentally and physically, too.”Now at 19 majors — a total Medvedev called “outrageous” — Nadal is merely one away from rival Roger Federer’s record for men.But this one did not come easily. Not at all.Sure seemed it might, with Nadal ahead by two sets and a break in the third at 3-2, playing like “a beast out there,” as the No. 5-seeded Medvedev put it.At that moment, Medvedev would joke afterward, this is where his thoughts were: “OK, in 20 minutes I have to give a speech. What do I say?” 19th Slam for Nadal with his 4th US Open title Spaniard outlasts Medvedev in five-set final 3 Photos Or, as he noted during the trophy ceremony, pulling for more bang for the bucks they spent on tickets.They certainly got that.“I’ll definitely remember it,” Medvedev said, “even when I’m, like, 70 years old.” Add the Spaniard’s haul in New York to his 12 titles at the French Open, two at Wimbledon and one at the Australian Open, and the 20-19 gap between Federer and Nadal is the closest it’s been in 15 years. Federer led 1-0 after his breakthrough triumph at the All England Club in 2003, and he had four by the time Nadal got his first at Roland Garros in 2005.Federer, who lost in the quarterfinals at the U.S. Open, is 38, while Nadal is 33 — making him the oldest male champion at Flushing Meadows since 1970. He’s also the first man to win five majors after turning 30.Nadal says he wants to finish his career at No. 1 in the Grand Slam standings — ahead of Federer and Novak Djokovic, looming in third place currently with 16 — but also insists he won’t base his happiness on how it all shakes out in the end.This particular match ended the way he wanted it to. The journey just took more detours than anyone could have anticipated. Follow By HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Tennis Writer Published: September 8, 2019, 7:14pm In the next game, Nadal held a pair of match points, but Medvedev, of course, avoided defeat yet another time, erasing one of those with a backhand winner, the other with a service winner, earning a standing ovation.With Nadal’s backers screaming, “Close it out!” at the ensuing changeover, he once more stepped to the baseline to try to serve it out, this time at 5-4. Naturally, he was forced to deal with another heart-in-throat break point, but came up with a stinging forehand that drew a long forehand from Medvedev.Two points later, it was over, and the indefatigable Nadal was splayed on his back on the court, as he’s been so often at the conclusion of energy-sapping, will-challenging, high-stakes matches.“What he went through during the match and still being able to survive and finish the match that way, it’s out of this world,” said one of Nadal’s coaches, Carlos Moya. “You have to be, mentally, a genius. He’s still there, still fighting and turning things around when things look really bad. He was able to do that today.” Share: Share: Receive latest stories and local news in your email:last_img read more

The 10-day Cairo and Ancient Egypt River Cruise begins with three nights in bustling Cairo, where guests will visit the pyramids, see the remains of Tutankhamun’s tomb at the Egyptian Museum and enjoy a home-hosted dinner and cooking demonstration with a local family. From there, a quick flight to Luxor allows for a visit to the West Bank of the Nile and the well-preserved, colorful hieroglyphics adorning the tombs in the Valley of the Kings as well as the Monument of Queen Hatshepsut and statues of the Colossi before embarking on the MS Hamees for a five-day cruise southbound on the mighty Nile.

Ford Revives the HarleyDavidson F150 for 2019

first_imgThere’s a stainless steel exhaust with Harley-Davidson branding, a set of new fender flares, a new hood with ram-air intake, new front and rear bumper inserts, Harley-Davidson badging throughout, new door trim, and a host of smaller applications across the F-150s exterior. There will also be a ton of little details that reside inside the truck’s cabin.According to Tuscany Motor Co., the plan is to build over 1,000 Harley-Davidson F-150s, all with a starting price of $84,995 and will be sold in select dealerships around the United States. The Harley-Davidson F-150s will come standard with the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 but can be selected with the more powerful twin-turbocharged V-6 EcoBoost engine as well. What isn’t known is what Harley-Davidson gets out of the deal, as we haven’t seen anything Ford-branded from Harley-Davidson. And with the motorcycle brand very nearly on the brink of collapse, we’d have to imagine that Harley-Davidson was paid a pretty penny for licensing its brand. harleytruck.com harleytruck.com harleytruck.com harleytruck.com Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App The Opus OP15′ Is a Tricked-Out, Off-Road-Ready Travel Trailer harleytruck.com harleytruck.com 1 of 8 Ride Out the Apocalypse With the 1,000-Horsepower Rezvani Tank X SUV harleytruck.com Next The partnership with Harley-Davidson began in 2000 and has been quite fruitful with over 70,000 Harley-Davidson branded F-150s sold since its debut. While previous Harley-Davidson F-150s were developed in-house by Ford in conjunction with the motorcycle maker, the latest edition was developed by Tuscany Motor Co., which is a subsidiary of FOX, the company that produces the Raptor’s suspension components.Though previous iterations were really nothing more than body kits and branding exercises, the new Harley-Davidson F-150 packs a host of features that go beyond the aesthetics. According to Ford and Tuscany Motor Co., the Harley-Davidson F-150 features a lift thanks to some FOX-sourced suspension components, new aluminum wheels made to resemble Harley-Davidson’s Fat Boy wheels, LED lightbars, and 35-inch all-terrain tires. However, given the success of previous iterations, Ford and Tuscany didn’t skimp on the exterior details. There have been times in Ford’s past where the Blue Oval partners with outside brands to rev up the automaker’s lineup. However, none have been as fruitful as Ford’s partnership with Harley-Davidson and the livening up of Ford’s sales king, the F-150. Though the release was without the typical fanfare as per Ford’s known for, the 2019 Harley-Davidson F-150 will be an absolute boon to Ford’s already stellar F-150 track record.

Urban Loft Meets New England Farm in Bens Barn in Maine

first_img How Full Harvest and Misfits Market Are Saving Ugly Produce Designed by architectural firm Caleb Johnson Studio, Ben’s Barn is a shining example of classic New England simplicity on the outside and stunning farmhouse industrial style on the inside. Utilizing the two-story gabled form, Ben’s Barn consists of two sections joined by a central glass atrium. The architectural shape was inspired by the antique farmhouse and barn that had been located on another part of the property. The interior design took shape thanks to mid-century modern and urban industrial influences. The use of materials also helped to carry the theme of building a bond between past and present. Maine cedar planks clad the exterior and are protected by a sustainable steel roof. Inside, materials salvaged from the site’s original farmhouse and barn were used for interior wood cladding, doors, and the exposed timber ceiling structure. Cabinetry and fixtures taken from a mid-century modern teardown in Massachusetts were repurposed throughout, adding a timeless yet trendy style to the space. Even the granite foundation from the original farmhouse was repurposed. The massive blocks became landscaping, seating, and steps around the new home. How to Cultivate Mid-Century Modern Style in Your Own Home The Nomadic Beer Maestros of Evil Twin Brewing Find a Permanent Home in Queens Editors’ Recommendations Previous Inside, Ben’s Barn was carefully styled to form an eclectic blend of traditional farmhouse, mid-century modern, and urban industrial. To complement the salvaged ceiling beams, the new wooden support beams were left exposed, their light color contrasting against the aged, repurposed wood. The rescued mid-century modern cabinetry was used to make a library space on the second floor, accessed via a bridge with steel and wire guardrails. An industrial style concrete floor was used throughout the first level while lighting fixtures look like they were pulled straight from a warehouse. Throughout the inside of the home the furnishings are a blend of mid-century modern and urban industrial, while outside, classic Adirondack chairs circle a fire pit. While disparate, the three styles are equally represented in every corner of the home and are connected through the use of natural wood and a warm gray color palette. It all comes together to create a unique family home that is at once trendy and timeless.For more industrial grit (with a splash of bourbon) check out the Lost Whiskey Concrete Cabin.center_img For Sale: A Treehouse in the Suburbs Designed by John Lautner Next 1 of 2 Your New Favorite Pair of Go-to Leather Shoes Just Got More Affordable Few other places in the country have an architectural history like New England. Dating back to the Pilgrims, New England defined New World architecture for much of the 17th and 18th centuries. Take a drive down any country road, and you’re bound to come upon a historic home with a little green placard — a literal sign highlighting the important architecture of the area.While the rest of the country moved forward in the architectural sense, New England seemed happy to be stuck in its ways, continuing the simple Colonial style homes right through to today, but with a contemporary twist. While true Colonials featured small, closed off rooms, today’s homes are bright, open spaces with all of the latest styles and trends — a perfect blend of old meets new.

Former HarleyDavidson Bigwig Returns with New Electric Motorcycle Company

first_img Behold the World’s Most Adventure-Ready Electric Motorcycle Fuell Next What Kind of Motorcycle Should I Get? A Comprehensive Guide to Motorcycle Types FuellErik Buell’s name was once a staple in the motorcycle world. His racing pedigree and penchant for building rad V-Twin-powered sportbikes made him known the world over. However, in the last decade, his name has been all but stricken from the public’s collective consciousness. Partially due to Harley-Davidson’s fall from grace and profitability, and partly because of some ill-timed ventures, Buell’s been out of the motorcycle game for some time. Now, he’d like to make a comeback with an all-electric motorcycle company called Fuell. Get it?Buell is making this phoenix-like rise from the ashes based on two forthcoming electric motorcycles developed in-house by himself, mobility expert Francois-Xavier Terny, and Fred Vasseur, who is currently the team principal of the Sauber Alfa Romeo F1 team. The two motorcycles are actually classified as mobility solutions, but one looks to be a street-going motorcycle to compete against bikes like Zeros and Harley-Davidson’s forthcoming LiveWire, while the second is tailored to the urban riding public. Let’s start with the second. Called the Fluid, the mountain bike-esque electric cycle features a 980wH battery pack capable of giving it a range of about 125 miles per charge. Torque is capped at about 77 lb-ft which will give the vehicle a healthy dose of oomph when you twist the electric throttle. Pricing is said to come in at around $3,295, which isn’t out of line with other electric motorcycles having similar specs. But given the racing history and technical know-how of both Vasseur and Buell, the electric motorcycle may be the more interesting proposition. Fuell Fuell Fuell Fuell Fuell Fuell Next 1 of 7 1 of 6center_img Fuell Fuell Dubbed the Flow, the electric motorcycle looks to have similar attributes as a modern upright cruiser, though with a style that’s definitely future-forward. Centered around either a 10kW or 35kW battery pack, the Flow has a theoretical range of 125 miles per charge, similar to the Fluid, but it can use a fast charger for a full range return in just 30 minutes. According to the company’s website, the Flow will set customers back around $10,995, which again, isn’t unreasonable. In fact, compared to its Harley-Davidson counterpart which is priced at $30,000 and doesn’t offer much more in terms of range or usability, Fuell’s Flow is a bargain.Full technical specs haven’t been released yet, but according to the company, those details should be dropping soon. What we do know is that Fuell is aiming at a release for the Fluid by the end of this year, while the road-going Flow aimed at delivery for early 2021. If the motorcycle is as good as Buell’s previous offerings, we’re in for an electric revolution. We can’t wait.

An Honest Review of the Tuft and Needle Pillow

first_img Wake Up Rested With the Best Down Pillows of 2019 Free shipping and returns Tuft and Needle is mostly known for the comfortable T&N Adaptive Foam it uses in its Mint mattresses. T&N Adaptive Foam was engineered to combine the contouring benefits of memory foam with the bounce and support you’d expect from something springier. The Tuft and Needle pillow was made from this same material, but with an adjusted density and firmness.When it comes to buying a pillow to improve your sleep, you can never be too careful. Everyone sleeps in their own unique way, and if you don’t choose the right pillow for you, you could end up with extra neck pain at an expensive price. So whether you’re a side sleeper, back sleeper, or stomach sleeper, it’s important to do your research before you buy. We got our hands on the Tuft and Needle pillow to help you make an informed decision.First ImpressionsThe pillow arrives neatly curled up inside a box. Upon initially opening up the plastic within, you will notice an initial off-gassing odor, but that quickly fades after a couple of hours or so. The T&N Adaptive Foam is soft and pliable to the touch but quickly bounces back after you squeeze it. When we first looked at it, our initial reaction was that it would work great as a pillow for side sleepers.Comfort: The Tuft and Needle pillow is neither too soft nor too firm, but is somewhere in between. We wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s the Goldilocks of pillows, but it is certainly a nice place to rest your head. Unlike a lot of traditional memory foam pillows, it also seems to be retaining its shape over time, making it ideal for heavy use. Additionally, the cover is made from a soft blend of polyester, Tencel, and elastane.Temperature: Overall, the T&N pillow sleeps quite cool. The unique foam construction on the inside closely resembles memory foam but is actually enhanced with “open cell technology” to provide that cooling pillow effect. Heat-wicking graphite and cooling gel also help regulate the temperature of the pillow throughout the night.Loft: The pillow sits 5 inches off the bed, making it mainly suitable for side sleepers. Since the inner foam is fairly malleable, it also works pretty well for back sleepers. If you tend to sleep on your stomach at all, however, a loft this high could end up causing unwanted neck pain.Price: Coming in at $75 for the standard size and $100 for the king size, it isn’t exactly the most affordable memory foam pillow on the market. It does come with a 100-night trial and a 3-year limited warranty, though, so you won’t be stuck with a really expensive pillow if you end up disliking it.How well does it sleep?Good forBad forSide sleepersStomach sleepersBack sleepersCombination sleepersThose who sleep hot ProsCons Sleeps coolNot adjustable We slept on the Tuft and needle pillow for about a month and, overall, we were pleased with its performance. The T&N Adaptive memory foam proved to be the perfect combination of firm and soft and it retained its shape throughout the span of the review. While the pillow itself worked great for some of us, there were some sleep positions that didn’t exactly mesh well with every type of sleeper. Here’s a quick rundown of its pros and cons:Pros and ConsAfter fully assessing this pillow, it is clear that the pros greatly outweigh the cons. If you’re someone who is looking for a new pillow to improve sleep, reduce neck pain, and offer high-quality comfort and support, the Tuft and Needle pillow is an excellent option.

The Bourdain Effect Reflecting on the Late Celebrity Chefs Impact on All

first_imgAnthony Bourdain died just over a year ago and it still stings. The chef, author, personality, former addict, and philosopher of sorts left a gaping hole not only in the culinary world but in the world in general.The guy preached truly exploratory travel. He wanted you to open your mouths and minds anytime you packed a bag or reached for your passport. He wanted you to question stereotypes, whether they involved authentic dishes or geographic destinations.Paulo Fridman/Getty ImagesBourdain’s highlight reel for Parts Unknown alone is a lengthy one. There was the time he visited Iran despite America’s troubled relationship with the country, only to be treated like royalty. Or the time he clanked beers with President Obama, sporting a noticeable twinkle in his eye. He went on any number of  Heart of Darkness-like treks into some jungle backcountry to become a lovable local for a few blurry, stomach-filling days.The great food minds convince you to not just step out of your comfort zone but blow the whole thing up. The late great Jonathan Gold (of LA Times fame) did this, persuading an entire generation of city dwellers not to overlook what’s being cooked in, well, the overlooked places. Strip malls, food carts, corner stores, and flea markets can house some of the most memorable flavors on the planet. Ratings and narrow-minded press be damned, Gold and Bourdain often thought, there’s real quality beyond what gets the buzz. Perhaps best of all, Bourdain was anti-bullshit. And let’s be fair, there’s a fair amount of it in the restaurant business. He demanded better of us than to just slap the overused “authentic” label on our inspired entrees. Bourdain didn’t have patience for imposters because he had the luxury of almost always going straight to the source. We may not all be able to travel as extensively as he did, but we certainly can learn from his countless miles logged (and filmed).Bourdain’s native New Jersey just created an official food trail for the guy. A commemorative book, too, was just released by CNN. I’d like to think the best way to honor him is to do as he did: Get lost, try everything at least once, and carry yourself with the quiet confidence that comes from having an open mind and some semblance of manners. A Quick and Easy Guide to Popular German Wine Varietals Beyond the plated things, Bourdain still resonated. His late-life fame (he’s said many times that he didn’t even have a savings account until his 40s) is inspiring to every American trying to make it amid recession after recession. His coolness and humility under pressure, so often in a supremely foreign land, was a lesson in how to behave while abroad. While so many Yanks abroad were simply shouting louder English or writing off certain customs, Bourdain politely dug into his surroundings. I found it surprising, at first, to learn that there were no drugs or alcohol in Bourdain’s body when they found him. I’ve since realized that it sort of makes sense. Immensely sad as it was, his death was pure and on his own terms. He picked a time to depart and did exactly that. Rest in peace. 7 of the Best Drink References in Music Helpful Wine Terminology So You Sound Like You Know What You’re Talking About center_img What is Biodynamic Wine?

Then maybe it’s time to shake things up with some slightly more creative date ideas. Ultimately, it’s not so much about doing it big as it is about doing it specific, both to your interests and to those of your partner. Plus, putting in a little more effort is 1,000% guaranteed to make the experience more meaningful for you both.So, without further ado, allow us to share some of our favorite summer date ideas with you. They range from the simple and free to the playful and whimsical, and should provide plenty of fodder for your own romantic adventures.Indoor PicnicSiesta Siesta/Getty ImagesWhile outdoor picnics are cute and super charming, summer heat doesn’t always make them the most practical date option. Thankfully, you can still spin some magic by bringing the party indoors! Roll out a checkered blanket on your living room floor and pack a basket feast full of fresh fruit, finger sandwiches, and some bubbly. Bonus points if you decorate the space with house plants and a playlist of nature sounds.Bookstore AdventureHero Images/Getty ImagesIf you’re a bibliophile, go on a bookstore date! But don’t just shop for a new read, use it as an opportunity to share your love for words with someone you’re maybe sort of starting to love, too. To do this, split up with your partner once you get to the store and hunt for books you think the other would adore. Buy them (or just sit down with them in the store) and then explain why you thought they’d connect with them. Sharing art is incredibly meaningful — and sexy! — so don’t be afraid to get a little vulnerable.Outdoor ConcertKlaus Vedfelt/Getty ImagesSummer is a fantastic time for outdoor concerts, so peruse local newspapers or blogs for concert listings. Most cities and towns have some sort of outdoor festival during the season, which you can usually show up to loaded down with your own food and beverages. And the great thing is that it doesn’t really matter if the music’s any good — getting to sway with a cutie on your lap while some tunes float in the air is its own kind of wonderful.Museum TourMaria Teneva/UnsplashFor those of you museum heads in the bunch, an airy and air-conditioned museum can be a wonderful spot for a summer date. However, instead of just moseying around aimlessly, step things up with a specialized itinerary. If it’s a museum you know and love, create a map zigging and zagging between your favorite exhibits along with explanations for why you love them or are drawn to them. Dates are meant to help you get to know somebody better, so feel free to show off your knowledge and your passions.Minor League GameAmriphoto/Getty ImagesAnother fabulously summer date activity is a minor league baseball game. Sure, the Majors are a little more exciting, but there’s something nice and cozy about heading out to a more local venue. The crowds are smaller (but no less intense!) and the traditions are just a little kookier. If you and your date are a rambunctious duo, this idea could be a real home run (especially if you go on a Thursday, which is Thirsty Thursday just about everywhere).Arcade DayElement5 Digital/UnsplashSure, arcade games may be a little juvenile, but it’s amazing how quickly a round of Skee-Ball can reconnect you to your inner child, especially if it involves some playful flirting. Get a bucket of coins and spend the day exploring your favorite games, then divvy up the raffle tickets and pick stuffed animals for one another. If you’re a naturally competitive guy, this could be a great way to see if your date is down to play.VolunteerDaniel Chekalov/UnsplashActs of service can really bring people together, which is why a volunteer outing could be a great activity for you and your new love interest. There are a plethora of different ways to volunteer during the summer (from outdoor beautification to tutoring and sports programs), so pick one that seems right for y’all and spread a little charity. Maybe not the most outwardly romantic date idea, but one that could teach you a lot about your potential mate.last_img read more

7 Mountain Bike Destinations to Put On Your Bucket List

first_imgClimate and geography are just two factors that play a role in finding that next bucket-list ride. Whether you are seeking a muscle-burning climb, an adrenaline-rushing descent, an obstacle-dodging challenge, or heart-pounding speed, you’ll find it at one of these top mountain biking destinations, all of which will test your skills the moment your tires hit the trail.Oh! And, don’t forget your helmet! And with some of these trails, you’re definitely going to want to wear one.Looking for more bucket list adventures? We’ve got some ideas.Whistler, British Columbia, CanadaDarryl Leniuk/Getty ImagesLocated in the spectacular coastal mountains of British Columbia, Whistler is widely considered to be one of the premier mountain bike locations in the world. Doubling as a skier and snowboarder’s paradise, the three-season Whistler Mountain Bike Park offers over 100 miles of trails ranging in difficulty from beginner to expert. If you prefer to primarily bomb down the mountain, many of the trails are accessible via the same chair lifts that serve the slopes in winter. If you visit, save time to explore, because Whistler is but a blip on the map of stellar opportunities that exist within this stunning Canadian province.The Alps, FranceScott Markewitz/Aurora Photos/Getty ImagesIt’s no wonder that this region is so popular among European mountain bikers. Aside from the scenic vistas, The Alps are easily accessible. The diverse network of trails provides something for everyone; there are even options for those seeking longer trails with cross country loops crossing into Switzerland and back to France. If you prefer to avoid the uphill climbs, utilizing the system of chairlifts at Morzine will allow predominately downhill riding in this alpine environment (the lifts are open mid-June until mid-September). If you prefer the complete, all-mountain package, consider Chamonix.Moab, Utah, United StatesWhit Richardson/Getty ImagesMoab is often recognized as the mountain biking capital of the United States, if not the world. The red rock landscape provides one of the most unique locations on the planet. Riders from all over the world make the pilgrimage to this outdoor mecca to ride trails like Porcupine Rim, Poison Spider, Slickrock, and the Whole Enchilada. While the region is accessible year-round, spring and fall are the most favorable seasons due to high summer temperatures. The region is also highly coveted by off-road enthusiasts and is the gateway to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.Nelson, New ZealandNew Zealand is an adrenaline lover’s paradise. This tiny island nation thrives on outdoor pursuits and mountain biking is at the top of many lists. Located on the northern side of the south island, the small coastal city of Nelson may be home to some of the best mountain biking in the entire country. And while there are higher mountains in other locations, the more than 3,000-foot tall peaks rise dramatically from sea level. Perhaps the most sought after destination near Nelson are the trails at Wairoa Gorge. This bike park, created by an American billionaire, opened to the public in 2016 and provides an unprecedented experience. Crested Butte, ColoradoWith so many fantastic places to mountain bike in the mountain state, how do you feasibly narrow down the list? Numerous ski resorts around the state have expanded their summer offerings to include bike parks with many trails served by lift assist. That’s right, the same lifts that haul you to the top of your favorite ski runs can also transport you and your bike to a diverse array of bike trails and it’s all downhill from there. Crested Butte is one such ski resort and the area offers over 700 miles of singletrack. We don’t want to sound biased, but riding in the fall as the aspens begin turning to their golden hue can be an added perk to finding that downhill bliss.Park City, UtahLocated just a short drive from Salt Lake City lies the mountain town of Park City. The official number of miles that the area promotes for mountain biking is over 400. However, that number may be very understated as other numbers go well over 600. Many of the trails in the area are accessible via lift-assist where you can let the lifts do all of the uphill work while you concentrate on the downhill adrenaline rush. The base areas of both Park City and Deer Valley both serve the expansive trail offerings. Additionally, Park City was awarded the first-ever gold-level status by the IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) as being a “ride center” for offering something for every level of rider. And after a day of intense riding, you can explore the former 19th-century mining town turned world-class resort town. PeruMany of the selections on the list above will not come as a surprise to mountain biking enthusiasts. Peru, on the other hand, may be the sport’s last great (relatively) undiscovered frontier. The Incan Empire extended from Ecuador to Chile and they built thousands of miles of trails connecting their cities and outposts. Located right in the center between the aforementioned countries sits Peru. While the allure of trekking to Machu Picchu might draw many of the country’s visitors, there’s another unique way to explore this mountainous nation. The scenery is stunning, the climate is varied, the mountains are steep, the area is alive with history and culture, and if the Inca were still around today, they would most assuredly be mountain bikers. Article originally published March 28, 2018.

Taxa Outdoors Rugged Mantis Travel Trailer Just Got Even Better

first_imgFor decades, the best option for hardcore, adventurous campers was a classic teardrop trailer. The 21st century opened things up, bringing a slew of ingenious new manufacturers, all building capable, lightweight, rugged travel trailers ready to go anywhere. New for 2019, Taxa Outdoors — one of our favorite towable brands — returns with a redesigned flagship model.The most noticeable thing about the refreshed Mantis is its size or, more specifically, lack thereof. While the model gets a 12-inch bump in length up to 19 feet, it’s still incredibly compact with a footprint that can be stored in most 7-foot garages. At roughly 3,000 pounds, it’s towable by even moderately equipped trucks and SUVs. It all rides on 15-inch steel wheel all-terrain tires for a comfortable ride that’s capable of venturing off-road when necessary.Inside is a surprising amount of elbow room. The pop-up roof guarantees plenty of headroom with comfortable seating for six. After dark, the Mantis will sleep four with a comfortable full-size bed/couch at the rear and bunk beds at the front. The rugged, military-inspired exterior belies a premium cabin. The long list of features includes a birch plywood kitchen with a Dometic Combo 2-burner sink and stove, plus ample storage. A 6,000-BTU air conditioner, oversized fresh and gray water tanks, exterior hot/cold shower, 8-foot patio awning, and 12-volt USB outlets throughout are all standard. Buyers can even upgrade to a 78-liter refrigerator/freezer and a wet bath with a shower and cassette toilet, making the Mantis a real off-grid camping solution.Taxa Outdoors first made industry waves with the pared-down Cricket. The mid-range travel trailer was instantly recognizable for its quirky, asymmetrical shell. It was a love-it-or-hate-it design. For us, it was love at first sight, which is why we still rank it among the best ultra-light travel trailers. That Taxa managed to engineer a boatload of storage, features, and usability into the Cricket’s 15-foot shell proved the company knew how to build a legit towable for the avid outdoorsman. The redesigned Mantis builds on their years of research and development, making their already great flagship product even better.The 2019 Taxa Outdoors Mantis is available with a starting price of around $37,500, but a fully loaded model pushes closer to $40,000. That might seem steep, but for a durable, well-designed adventure trailer, it doesn’t get much better.Not sure which model — teardrop, ultra-light, or full-featured Airstream — is right for you?

The Filson Antique Tin Cloth Jag-Shirt is made with 10-ounce cotton canvas that has a broken-in feel. It’s inspired by vintage hunting jackets and is very abrasion- and wind-resistant. Stack wood, prep meat, or relax in style — this jacket shirt can do it all. $310 from Fjallraven 7 Couples Costumes That Don’t Suck $139 from Patagonia Patagonia Long-Sleeved Lightweight Fjord Flannel ShirtWhen a flannel jacket might be overkill, the flannel shirt fits just right.

With a new lighter SPE midsole and Fuga outsole from Vibram, the Mountain 600 provides plenty of grip and cushion without the weight. The Danner Dry waterpoof liner inside keeps the water out for those (un)lucky enough to live in the Pacific Northwest. Danner Mountain Pass BootFor more urban style we can step it up a notch to the Danner Mountain Pass. Strong and durable full-grain leather covers the upper part of the boot while waterproof Gore-Tex lines the inside.

Media must play role in pushing for gender equality Migiro says

24 May 2010Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro today appealed to the media to take on the cause of gender equality, spotlighting it potential to overturn stereotypes of men and women. “More is needed to make the media environment and industry more inclusive and gender-sensitive,” she stressed in remarks in Baku, Azerbaijan, to a conference of ministers from the Council of Europe responsible for equality between men and women.Every day around the world, mass media sways how people view what it means to be masculine and feminine, “sadly, often resorting to destructive gender stereotypes in the process,” Ms. Migiro said.“Such stereotyping, in turn, feeds into the gender discrimination which is a root cause of violence against women and girls,” she added.The Deputy Secretary-General called on mass media to put an end to its one-dimensional gender portrayal and its negative depictions of women’s role in society.She also emphasized that laws, leadership and action by the United Nations is not enough to promote gender equality.Other essential ingredients, Ms. Migiro said, include stepped-up monitoring, reporting and accountability; resources to jump-start national development and poverty-reduction schemes; and the systematic incorporation of the needs and concerns of women and girls into all policy areas.While in Azerbaijan, she also met with the country’s First Lady and Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Mehriban Aliyeva, as well as with Hijran Huseynova of Azerbaijan’s Committee for Family, Women and Children’s Affairs, and representatives of UN agencies based in Baku.The Deputy Secretary-General was also scheduled to hold talks with President Ilham Aliyev this afternoon.Earlier this month, Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information Kiyo Akasaka enlisted advertisers to join efforts to eliminate violence against women, calling on the industry to help defy destructive gender stereotypes. With up to 70 per cent of women experiencing violence in their lifetime, “this is not an abstract issue,” Mr. Akasaka stressed at a gathering of advertising titans in Moscow. “For women and girls, this is a struggle not to be assaulted, raped, molested or forced into the commercial sex trade.”He pointed to studies which have shown that negative stereotyping, including the depiction of women as sex objects, exacerbates gender discrimination. Women have often been portrayed in demeaning or damaging ways on billboards, magazines, television and magazines, he noted. read more

IMF expects world economy to register slowest growth since 2009 sees risk

by Joshua Goodman And Paul Wiseman, The Associated Press Posted Oct 6, 2015 8:03 am MDT Last Updated Oct 6, 2015 at 11:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LIMA, Peru – China’s slowdown and tumbling commodity prices will push global economic growth this year to the lowest level since the recession year 2009, the International Monetary Fund predicted Tuesday.In a report Tuesday in advance of the IMF-World Bank annual meetings here this week, the fund says the world economy will grow 3.1 per cent this year, down from a July forecast of 3.3 per cent and from 3.4 per cent growth last year.“The risks seem more tilted to the downside than they did just a few months ago,” IMF chief economist Maurice Obstfeld, told reporters.Still, Obstfeld downplayed the risk of a global recession.The Federal Reserve last month cited economic weakness around the world — and especially in China — when it decided to postpone a long-anticipated increase in short-term U.S. interest rates, which it’s kept near zero since December 2008. Obstfeld said any rate increase in the United States would be good news, reflecting the Fed’s vote of confidence in the American economy, the world’s largest.The fund predicts the United States will grow 2.6 per cent this year, up from a July forecast of 2.5 per cent and from 2.4 per cent growth last year.Emerging market economies will likely grow 4 per cent, which would mark the fifth straight annual drop. They have been hurt by an economic slowdown in China, which has reduced demand for emerging market raw materials and pushed down prices of commodities such as copper and oil.“What happens in China has repercussions for the entire world economy,” Obstfeld said.Among those hardest hit by the commodities bust: The Brazilian economy, forecast to contract by 3 per cent this year; and Russia, forecast to shrink 3.8 per cent because of lower oil prices and economic sanctions imposed by the West as punishment for Russian aggression in Ukraine.Collapsing energy prices are also hurting Canada. The IMF downgraded its forecast for the Canadian economy by half a percentage point to 1.0 per cent this year.The Chinese economy has been slowing for four straight years, partly because the government is engineering a transition away from dependence on exports and often-inefficient investments. Instead, they are moving toward slower, more sustainable growth based on consumer spending. The IMF expects Chinese economic growth to drop to a 25-year low 6.8 per cent this year, but that is unchanged from its July forecast.Chinese manufacturers are struggling, but “services seem to be booming,” Obstfeld said.The IMF foresees continued improvement in Europe. It kept its forecast for 1.5 per cent growth this year in the 19 countries that share the euro currency.The Japanese economy is expected to grow 0.6 per cent this year, down from the IMF’s July forecast of 0.8 per cent but an improvement from last year when it shrank 0.1 per cent.__Paul Wiseman reported from Washington__This story has been corrected to show that the IMF’s World Economic Outlook was released Tuesday, not Monday.

Diehard BlackBerry fans bemoan the end to Canadianmade smartphones

Diehard BlackBerry fans bemoan the end to Canadian-made smartphones BlackBerry’s headquarters in Waterloo, Ont. is shown on Wednesday June 22 , 2016. BlackBerry addicts are notoriously loyal, but even they will have a hard time sticking by their beloved device now that BlackBerry Ltd. is outsourcing production, say observers who admit to being diehard users themselves. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Eduardo Lima TORONTO – BlackBerry addicts are notoriously loyal, but even they will have a hard time sticking by their beloved device now that BlackBerry Ltd. is outsourcing production, say observers who admit to being diehard users themselves.News that the Waterloo, Ont.-based company will stop making their own smartphones represented another nail in the coffin for the so-called CrackBerry, at least for enthusiasts who pride themselves on backing the homegrown product in the face of an iPhone revolution.Toronto devotee Alex Davis feared that “outsourcing the heck out of it” would result in poor quality, but mostly complained about losing the ability to call it a Canadian phone. He stuck with BlackBerry even as friends and family picked up slicker, more versatile rivals from Apple and Samsung.“I always felt like I’m going down with the ship. It’s like ‘Titanic,’” joked Davis, who runs The Repair Store, which specializes in servicing the BlackBerry. “I have a lot of customers who come in and they go: ‘I’m going down with the ship! I’m Canadian, I’m sticking with them and I don’t care if they go broke, it’s a Canadian product.’”Tech analyst Carmi Levy called the shift to third-party manufacturers “the end of an era” for the device, considering its Canuck roots one of its biggest selling points.“Now it removes the last thing that differentiated BlackBerry devices from other devices — it’s Canadianness,” said Levy, a CTV technology analyst based in London, Ont., who uses a BlackBerry Priv.Still, he admitted that Team BlackBerry is alive and well, despite a prolonged tailspin that began with the iPhone’s debut.“They’re a breed apart from any other smartphone user,” said Levy. “They love their phone at a level that not even the most ardent Apple fan can reach.“It isn’t so much a statement about their style, which is what an iPhone is, it’s a statement about who they are and how they stand apart from the crowd. It’s a culture more than anything else and even after the company’s downfall, they don’t want to give that up. And for good reason — there aren’t that many Canadian icons to begin with.”Levy credits the BlackBerry with igniting our modern-day obsession with mobile devices, noting they were the first to really become a ubiquitous accessory that demanded constant attention.“Before BlackBerry came along, all we had were (cellphones),” said Levy.“It didn’t bother us if we left them on the other side of the house, no one gave these phones a second thought. You replaced them every few years when a newer, better one came along but it really wasn’t an object of affection or desire…. We tend to think of the iPhone as a generator of mania, but really it was the BlackBerry that started it and if we owe a debt of gratitude to any one company for sealing the smartphone within our brain it is BlackBerry.”BlackBerry aficionado Chris Parsons agrees, noting that the device has become an integral part of our personal and collective culture, and shaped a mobile etiquette that we take for granted today.The Halifax tech guru, who runs the website CrackBerry.com, pointed to the phone’s flashing red light, which alerted users to a waiting message but also served as digital proof of productivity, or popularity.“There’s the concept of the red blinking light that created the sense of urgency,” Parsons said of the feature, reminiscent of the old-school landline answering machine.“BlackBerry basically gave people the power to be able to go ahead and get excited over phones.”Davis credits teenagers with being the first hardcore adopters, since BlackBerry’s messaging program BBM was free in an age when you had to pay for a text message.The core user eventually became businessmen, real estate agents and lawyers — working professionals enamoured with the clickety-clack of a manual keyboard and hooked on the ability to send and receive immediate emails that could make or break a deal.“IPhone (was like) as a toy to most people. They look and they say, ‘Yeah my daughter has one.’ ‘My son has one’,” said Davis, who swears by his BlackBerry Q10.“A pragmatic user is not interested in sending selfies. It’s just not us. It’s not the crowd who has a BlackBerry.”U.S. President Barack Obama and social media queen Kim Kardashian are among its most famous devotees because of BlackBerry’s top security features, although both have admitted to moving on to rival devices.Kardashian’s effusive devotion was tempered by the fact she also owned an iPhone, her device of choice for the social media exploits that keep her in the limelight.The implicit suggestion is that Kardashian’s BlackBerry was for boring work stuff, said Parsons.“There’s definitely stigma around the brand itself that probably never is going to leave them unfortunately,” he said.And at this point, BlackBerry can’t even ride an “underdog” wave that it enjoyed for a short time while the world went Apple crazy, said Levy.“That retro/nostalgic cool that Blackberry has enjoyed for a while has been eroding over the past year or so since it made its initial move into the Android market,” he said. “And now that it’s announced that other companies are going to be building its phones for it, the very things that made BlackBerry cool will no longer exist.” by Cassandra Szklarski, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 28, 2016 3:25 pm MDT Last Updated Sep 29, 2016 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

UN calls for 111 million to address urgent humanitarian priorities in DPR

Source: OCHA AssessmentFunding these humanitarian priorities will enable the five UN agencies – the World Food Programme (WFP), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Health Organization (WHO), the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) – already working on the ground to continue programmes that provide many vulnerable people with the basics. “It is vital that donors respond quickly and generously to allow aid agencies to address the humanitarian situation,” emphasized Mr. Isaczai. “Humanitarian needs must be kept separate from political issues to be able to ensure minimum living conditions for the most vulnerable, especially women, children and the elderly.”The commitment and support of the international community is vital. The UN needs to continue to build on positive developments, otherwise the progress made in the past decade to improve food security, health and nutrition will not be sustained. The UN will continue to work towards addressing the structural causes of vulnerabilities and chronic malnutrition through development interventions agreed with the DPRK Government, the press release concludes. “DPR Korea is both a silent and underfunded humanitarian situation,” said UN Resident Coordinator Ghulam Isaczai in a press release. “Protracted and serious needs for millions of people are persistent and require sustained funding.”The call comes as the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has released its latest assessment that addresses the country’s critical humanitarian needs which remain drastically underfunded.According to the UN, among a population of 24.6 million people, approximately 70 per cent (18 million people) are considered food insecure, and are not able to access an adequate and diverse nutritious diet to live healthily. Malnutrition rates continue to be a public health concern, with the chronic malnutrition (stunting) rate among children under five at 27.9 per cent; 4 per cent of them are acutely malnourished (wasting), according to the 2012 National Nutrition Survey.Under-nutrition is a fundamental cause of maternal and child death and disease. Health service delivery is inadequate, and many areas of the country are not equipped with sufficient facilities, equipment or medicines. Safe drinking water and inadequate sanitation services are a fundamental problem, contributing to high and chronic instances of diarrhoea, respiratory infections and waterborne diseases. Food production is hampered by a lack of agricultural resources, such as seeds and fertilizers, and is highly vulnerable to shocks, particularly natural disasters like floods. read more

London Marathon nurse denied world record for not wearing a dress

“I get that it’s supposed to be a fun thing but their definition is just so outdated.”Some of the nurses I work with do wear dresses but mostly we wear scrubs or a tunic and trousers.”I’m sure Guinness World Records don’t intend to cause offence but it would be nice if they decided to revise their criteria instead of reinforcing old gender stereotypes.” A nurse who ran the London Marathon wearing her NHS uniform claims she has been denied a world record because of her outfit.Jessica Anderson, who works at The Royal London Hospital’s Acute Admissions Unit, hoped to be recognised as the fastest woman to complete a marathon dressed as a nurse.But after beating the current record of 3:08:54 by 32 seconds last Sunday, she says her bid was refused because she was wearing her blue tunic and trousers instead of a more traditional dress.Ms Anderson accused Guinness World Records (GWR) of “reinforcing old gender stereotypes” after they insisted her choice of costume meant she was ineligible for the record.She told Runners World: “I was quite taken aback when I read that they’d rejected my application and I did email them to ask them to reconsider but they said no. Pictured raising her hands in joy as she finished the 26-mile race in a shower of confetti last week, Ms Anderson raised more than £2,200 for Barts Health NHS Trust.After clocking a time of 3:08:22, she said on Instagram: “Ps. @guinnessworldrecords this is what the fastest female marathon runner in a nurse’s uniform ACTUALLY looks like.”The official world record for the fastest female to run a marathon wearing a nurse’s uniform was set in 2015 by Sarah Dudgeon, who wore a light blue dress, a white apron and a white hat reminiscent of Florence Nightingale’s famous outfit.The London Marathon was criticised earlier this week after some of its stewards were accused of bullying and fat-shaming slower runners. Elizabeth Ayres was the 7½hr official pacer at the event last Sunday, meaning she could help the very slowest people finish their marathon on time.She told The Telegraph she was “bullied by clean-up crew” and forced to weave past sewage trucks – despite finishing “bang on time”. The runner claimed that at the 5km mark she was already being pursued by the cleaning crew, writing: “The sweeper car had overtaken us at Mile 1 and were claiming that I was moving at a slower pace than 17 min miles. I was so annoyed.”The cleaning crew crept up around us and started cleaning off the blue line right in front of me, I wasn’t impressed as made it known to one of the course cars who then asked them to hold back.” A spokesman for Guinness World Records said:  “Inclusiveness and respect are values that we hold extremely dear and while we always need to ensure we can differentiate between categories, it is quite clear that this record title is long over due a review which we will conduct as a priority in the coming days. ” Jessica Anderson, pictured centre in blue, is embraced after crossing the finish line Jessica Anderson, pictured centre in blue, is embraced after crossing the finish line Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Joy 4FCT continuous haulage systems deliver significant safety and productivity advances

first_imgWith seven installations of the Joy Flexible Conveyor Train (Joy 4FCT) globally – all operating in room and pillar extraction and an upcoming installation in longwall entry development – more and more operations are reporting significant advances in safety and productivity through the use of continuous haulage technology. The Joy4FCT is a single-operator, continuous haulage system that conveys product from the face to the panel belt, while simultaneously tramming and following the continuous miner through multiple drive sequences. Joy says that “from this truly continuous mining method, operations are greatly enhancing zero harm initiatives while realizing a considerable increase in tonnage output when compared to their previous use of typical batch haulage methods.“The Joy4FCT improves safety by combining all haulage into a single system operating at a low tram speed and following a fixed path of travel, while requiring only one operator using remote control. This reduction in the total number of mobile machines in the section reduces visibility concerns as well as dust generation from multiple travelways.  Due to a chain traction system distributed along the entire length of the machine, the 4FCT offers greater traction and a lower ground bearing pressure over that of conventional haulage machinery. Also, the 4FCT’s integral continuous mining power cable management reduces trailing cable damage.The Joy4FCT delivers improved productivity through its ability to more than double tonnage output per miner personnel when compared to batch haulage applications – first by eliminating the bottlenecks and car wait times typically associated with batch haulage – and next through a number of design innovations. The Joy4FCT incorporates an integrated inbye-lumpbreaker which eliminates the need for a separate feeder-breaker in the section. The system also offers belt advance automation as well as automated retreat mining capabilities, made possible by the inclusion of a Dynamic Move-Up Unit (DMU).”Acting as an interface between the Joy4FCT and the mine’s panel belt, the DMU and Joy4FCT are available in two configurations – a side discharge for low seam heights and wide entries; or an over-the-top unit (OTT) suited to higher seams and restricted widths. Note that the OTT system is a self-advancing unit with remote controlled panel belt move-ups; and can also be designed for retreat mining. The side discharge design must be advanced using the continuous miner to pull up.The first Australian installation of the Joy4FCT began in 2010. This Australian installation is the first 4FCT system with retreat mining capability and dual-function radio remote control. Depending upon the panel layout and entry dimensions, mines such as the one in Australia may realize up to 75% additional utilisation of reserves when using the retreat mining method, Joy reports.A room and pillar installation in the US Illinois Basin operates in a seam height of 2.4 m and has reported a best month of 182,300 t.  Its best day, consisting of two nine-hour production shifts, is recorded at a 413 m advance totaling 10,250 t.  “Also significant is that the continuous miner in front of the Joy 4FCT was a Joy12CM27 that had already recorded 3.1 Mt,” Joy says Continuous haulage methods deliver an average of 30% more productivity over batch haulage methods. The Joy4FCT increases the safety and productivity of mining operations by eliminating car waiting times, decreasing the amount of section equipment and the number of section personnel required, easing the management of cable systems and equipment proximities, and boosting production through automated belt advancement and retreat mining capabilities.last_img read more

Tencent offers a cloud storage account with 10TB free space

first_imgCompetition in the cloud storage market is growing. Dropbox, SkyDrive, and Google Drive are probably the most well know names and they all offer some amount of free storage, all in the multiple gigabytes. But such levels of free space have just been well and truly blown out of the water by an offer from Tencent Cloud.The Chinese company is offering 10TB of free space for its cloud storage customers. Tempted? Sure you are. However, you don’t get all the storage at once. Instead, Tencent will increase your limit as you use it. To begin with that means you’ll get 1TB of space. Once you go past 500GB of data stored that limit automatically increases to 2TB. The same happens at 1.5TB of data stored where the account limit increases to 3TB. And so on until you reach the real limit of 10TB.That is a lot of free space and I don’t know anyone who could actually use it all right now. In fact, I think a lot of users would struggle to fill the initial 1TB let alone the other 9. But as a marketing tool it works, and Tencent would have to honor the free storage promise if someone did upload that much data.The promotion looks to be ongoing with no end date in site. So the real question is should you trust your data to this Chinese company? The promotion website is only available in Chinese, which makes things more difficult. And even if you manage to register an account, if you have an issue it’s likely customer support will be in Chinese, too. Then there’s the question of security. Your data would most likely be sitting on servers in China and may not be protected from prying eyes. Although you can’t guarantee that in the US either now.It seems unlikely services like Dropbox will respond by upping their free storage limits, but Tencent isn’t without competition in its home territory. Both Baidu and Qihoo 360 are offering free 1TB accounts, and that’s going to be more than enough for most users.last_img read more

first_imgThe current success the Spanish manager is having at the English Premier League club is thanks to the good connections he has inside the teamSpanish coach Javi Gracia has just extended his contract with Watford in the English Premier League.But he’s positive it’s all thanks to the good relationships he has at the club.“We [Gracia, Gino Pozzo, and Scott Duxbury] have a good relationship,” he told the team’s official website.“I have found people with good values, with ambition, with the desire to grow and in that moment it was important to me to feel that impression because it was a difficult moment but all of them were trying to improve the club, and me too.”What to expect from Watford V Arsenal? Taimoor Khan – September 8, 2019 Arsenal are set to take on Watford this weekend and the game is definitely going to be quite a peculiar contest between two sides…“All of us were thinking in the same way and it was important to have a good relationship. For all of us the most important thing is the club and the team, and then it is easy to have a good relationship,” he added.“I think in pre-season it’s important to put together the important rules, the important lines you want to keep during the season.”“It’s important, it’s the beginning and you have to take care of all the details, because after you can’t do it,” he explained.“It was the moment when we spent more time together when we had time to train a lot. To get to know each other better, and to grow a team from a group of players.”“When you talk about a team, it’s not about 11 players. I think we are a good squad, but all of them are part of the team that we built up in the pre-season,” Gracia concluded.last_img read more

Know About Music Producer Alvin Kumar AK

first_imgWise and talented way beyond his young years, AK is a gifted producer on the rise in music. After the thrill with his first experience of creating sounds, producing became a passion of focus. His background of Indian descent is critical influences on his versatile sound.Being a music producer for the American Hip Hop industry, I started off as a kid with a dream to be the top music producer for the hip-hop industry. I would’ve never thought that I would also be involved in the Punjabi music industry when I first started making beats. I started making rap beats at the age of 12 in my bedroom but didn’t start taking my music career serious until the age of 16 where I produced a local hit song named “Snitch Food” featuring Lil Blood & Lil Rue.A whole bunch of my other songs that I’ve worked on has anywhere from 1 million-7million view on other pages. People that I was a fan of growing up, are actually my associates now and we work together in the music industry, which is incredibly cool. I’ve recently released a song last week called “Lak De Hulare” with an artist from New Zealand by the name of Sharan Sandhawalia. I’ve also recently released a song with India’s well-known singer, Tyson Sidhu which is titled “Tera Pyar” which had the internet buzzing with positive reviews on both of our Instagram accounts. When I first got into the Punjabi music scene my first two songs that I produced were on Kay V Singh’s album “Bulletproof”.IBT does not endorse any of the above content.last_img read more

Trump Rips LeBron James Smarts Hours Before Rally in Ohio

first_imgBy JONATHAN LEMIRE, Associated PressBRIDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) — Ahead of campaigning in Ohio on Saturday, President Donald Trump unleashed a withering attack on the state’s favorite son, savaging NBA star LeBron James in a late-night tweet that derided the intelligence of one of the nation’s most prominent African-American men.Melania Trump’s spokeswoman quickly distanced the first lady from the criticism of James, saying in a statement Saturday afternoon that it appeared James was “working to do good things on behalf of our next generation” and that the first lady would be open to visiting his new school for at-risk children. The statement didn’t criticize the president.In this July 30, 2018 file photo LeBron James listens to a question at a news conference after the opening ceremony for the I Promise School in Akron, Ohio. (AP Photo/Phil Long, File)Trump blasted James late Friday after an interview aired with CNN anchor Don Lemon in which he deemed Trump divisive. Although James has long been a Trump critic, calling the president “U bum” in a 2017 tweet, the tweet was Trump’s first attack on the player, who just opened up a school for underprivileged children in his hometown of Akron.The tweet came hours before Trump traveled to Columbus, Ohio, for a rally north of town in support of the Republican in a special U.S. House election on Tuesday. Once in Ohio, however, Trump stayed away from the controversy and never mentioned James as he hammered away at Democrats and other favorite targets.“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon,” Trump posted. “He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do.”Trump then, unexpectedly, appeared to weigh in on the growing debate over who is the greatest NBA player of all time, James or Michael Jordan, by writing “I like Mike!”Many former and current professional athletes, including Jordan, jumped to James’ defense.“I support LeBron James. He’s doing an amazing job for his community,” Jordan said in a statement to The Associated Press through his representative via text Saturday.Trump has long denounced the media — CNN in particular — and rarely lets a slight go unnoticed. But the attack on James, who was being interviewed by another Black man, to some resembled a racial dog whistle. He routinely deems Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California, who is also Black, as “low IQ” — an insult he repeated during the Ohio rally Saturday night.Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican who at times criticizes Trump, tweeted: “Rather than criticizing @KingJames, we should be celebrating him for his charity work and efforts to help kids.”Trump has repeatedly been questioned about his views on race, from deeming many Mexican immigrants “rapists” during his campaign kickoff speech for the Republican presidential nomination to placing blame on “both sides” for the violent clash between White supremacists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, a year ago.James, who campaigned for Trump’s opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton, and has not been shy about using his celebrity for social causes, did the interview from the public school he opened, called the “I Promise” school. Every student receives free tuition, as well as free food, a uniform and even a free bike.In the interview, James said he “would never sit across” from Trump, though he would talk to former President Barack Obama. James’ publicist declined to respond to Trump’s tweet, but early Saturday afternoon, James retweeted a post from the “I Promise” school and said: “Let’s get it kids!! Love you guys.”Lemon responded to the president, invoking both the administration’s forced-family-separations policy and Mrs. Trump’s social media etiquette campaign.“Who’s the real dummy? A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages? #BeBest” Lemon tweeted.James played for over a decade — and in two stints — with the Cleveland Cavaliers and delivered a title to the championship-starved region in 2016. Although he departed for the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this summer, the superstar remains very popular in the Buckeye State, and Trump’s attack could be a gift for the Democrat in Tuesday’s special congressional race.“I don’t have to tell (asterisk)anyone(asterisk) what LeBron James means to Ohio,” tweeted Democrat Danny O’Connor, who was running against state Sen. Troy Balderson.The White House did not immediately respond to a request to clarify Trump’s remarks. But even some Trump allies chided him.Geraldo Rivera, the journalist and Trump confidant, broke with the president to say he wished Trump “turned other cheek re @KingJames & @donlemon While I disagree with their conclusion that @POTUS is using sports to divide America along racial lines, they’re both sincere & intelligent men. LeBron just pledged millions for a school for underprivileged kids.”Along with Jordan, a number of other athletes spoke out in support of James.Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe tweeted: “It should be beneath the dignity of a sitting POTUS to take racist shots at D. Lemon and Lebron James.” NBA player Karl-Anthony Towns wrote: “So let me get this straight: Flint, MI has dirty water still, but you worried about an interview about a man doing good for education and generations of kids in his hometown?”Before entering politics, Trump frequently praised James and his own family tried to recruit him to the New York Knicks in 2010. But commenting on someone’s intelligence, including his own, has long been a Trump trope. He has been criticized for complimenting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (“smart cookie”) and Russian President Vladimir Putin (“very smart”) and has been known to praise himself as “a very stable genius.”But he also uses “stupid” — or variations thereof — as a favored insult. He has used it to describe the FBI, the NFL, Democrats, the filibuster, the nation’s immigration laws, journalists, trade policies and how the nation’s leaders have dealt with topics like Iraq, Muslims, Canada and China.He also, after then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly called him a “moron,” challenged his own Cabinet member to an IQ test.___Associated Press writer Steve Reed in Charlotte, N.C., contributed to this report.last_img read more

Group Rally in Protest Against Police Brutality in Palmer Park

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, AFRO Staff Writer, mgray@afro.comA small but emotional group of Prince George’s County residents made their voices heard, demanding for law enforcement reform during a meeting with police chief Hank Stawinski, while asking for state’s attorney Aisha Braveboy to drop the charges against Kevin Sneed.The group Black Mothers of Prince George’s County have collected almost 500 online signatures demanding justice for Sneed, who was allegedly beaten by three police officers and accused of attempted murder.  A coalition of community groups came together for a daylight vigil outside the police services complex in Palmer Park.Community activists rally outside Prince George’s County Police Headquarters protesting against police brutality. (Photo by Mark F. Gray)Approximately 40 people representing five community organizations challenged the County’s elected leadership to end violence by police officers which is sometimes fatal. They are in unison calling for Stawinski to end what they deem are constant acts of police brutality against minorities in the county.  They called for officers to be held fully accountable.“Protect us and not beat us, that’s what we are asking of the Prince George’s County Police Department,” said community activist Quinana Johnson, executive director of Life After Release Program. “We deserve respect and not to be beaten in these streets.”The research suggests that there is a very uneasy relationship between the community and the police force.  They cited how alleged crimes against citizens, who aren’t posing an imminent threat, are being escalated by overzealous policing and how a perceived blue wall of silence allows coverups to hamper investigations.  They accuse Stawinski of having an “illegal trial board” comprised of three random officers to hear cases regarding police misconduct and terminating or demoting those inside the department who choose to speak up.  Those are allegations part of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of “blackballed or terminated officers.”“The department is the way it is because our public officials allow it to be that way,” said Jonathan Newton, founder and executive director of the National Association Against Police Brutality. “Our public officials allow it to be that way because the Democratic Party goes along.”Newton, a former police officer in Georgia who left the force after he reported racism in his department, added that there must be an element of collusion between the party and the department.“Where does the Democratic Central Committee monthly meetings?,” Newton mocked. “The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge in spite of requests to move it anywhere else.”As a practicing attorney in the county Newton understands how both sides work and says that collusion between police departments and prosecutors keeps the system from achieving real justice.  He claims there are cases that have been corrupted by officers being allowed to lie to convict innocent defendants with the help of prosecutors who their testimony was untrue.“There’s more than one bad apple when it comes to police brutality,” Newton added. “Police accountability is as important to the community as gun rights are to the NRA.”Newton also said that true reform begins with voter registration and actively engaging millennials in the electoral process.  Speakers also tried to rally the crowd to bombard their elected official with phone calls, emails, and an aggressive social media presence to agitate them to bring about change.“It takes more than a vote every four years,” Newton said.  “Change comes with agitation, litigation and legislation.  That’s not anything new either.  That takes us back to the days of Dr. [Martin Luther] King.”They are are demanding the Prince George’s County Police begin wearing mandatory body cameras in an attempt to reduce the number incidents that escalate into fatality.   The groups are also demanding that footage be uploaded to the State’s Attorney’s office.last_img read more

Injured student now has legs in cast

first_imgBoth legs of the student who fell from the first floor of his lyceum last Monday are now in casts after he was treated by a private doctor amid allegations that he wasn’t properly diagnosed at Nicosia general hospital, where he was first treated after the accident.The mother of the pupil, Louisa Ioannou, said she doesn’t understand why the public hospital told them to leave the first and second time her son was examined. She was allegedly told to come back on Friday to see an orthopedic surgeon.“I couldn’t go to the general hospital because I am afraid now,” she said. Instead she went to the private doctor where the boy had an MRI on Saturday, and after injuries in both heels were diagnosed, he was fitted with the cast on Monday to prevent him from moving.Head of the general hospital Andreas Neophytou insists the hospital did the right thing.“The orthopedics told him and his mother to stay in bed, and slowly start to walk,” he said. “What is the sense of the cast if he should just stay in bed to achieve the same thing?”The boy’s legs are now in a castHe said the measure could even be counterproductive, as extra pressure may be put on the injured heels by the cast.The Pancyprian parents association also commented, saying the boy went to the private physician because of unbearable pain in his legs.“We ask the following question to the Ministry of Health: who is responsible for the continuing discomfort of the student and why did the student have to go to a private centre for proper diagnosis? Particularly after his previous hospitalisation at the general hospital,” they said in a statement, adding that the minister should respect the association more.The association said the parents association of the boy’s school’s accident insurance plan and solidarity fund will pay for the teenager’s medical bills.The pupil fell from the first floor at his school on May 14 and was rushed to the general hospital.The health ministry later said the boy was taken to A&E with pain in his heels after his fall.“The pupil underwent all necessary examinations by doctors – heel and spine X-rays – and after determining there was nothing to justify further treatment, he was discharged,” the ministry said.The parents said that the pupil was later examined by a private doctor who referred him back to the general hospital where he was “in serious condition.”Following X-rays and an MRI scan, as well as examination from a neurosurgeon and an orthopedic, and despite finding nothing, he was transferred to Makarios for observation, the ministry noted.The health ministry rejected the parents’ claims that the pupil was in serious condition and that doctors had not carried out the necessary tests and examinations.Meanwhile, a probe into the incident revealed that the school took the right measures at the time of the accident and no bullying was involved.The incident followed the death of a 10-year-old boy on May 11 after he hit his head playing basketball at school.The boy was taken to Larnaca hospital by his mother but after examining him, doctors decided it was okay for him to return home. The boy returned to the hospital a couple of hours later in critical condition. He was transferred to Nicosia where he died on the operating table.It later transpired that he had suffered a fractured skull and had died from internal haemorrhage.Police arrested two Larnaca hospital doctors in connection with the incident, prompting the doctors’ union Pasyki to hold a strike in protest.

first_imgThe association of private hospitals (Pasin) announced on Saturday that joining the proposed National Health Scheme (Gesy) would be like “jumping into the abyss”, after the group’s spokesman, who had said they were ready to enter into dialogue with the government for their participation in the scheme, resigned on Friday.Pasin, in a written announcement, said that its members would not join “an incomplete health system without sufficient studies and documentation, and which will degrade instead of upgrading the quality of the services provided.” Gesy, the group said, was “imminently threatening” the viability of private hospitals.It said that it has yet to receive the data it has repeatedly requested from the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) which would answer to “reasonable questions from its members, to ensure the continued provision of quality health services to patients.” HIO is tasked with managing Gesy.“Basically, Pasin members are being asked to take a leap into the abyss by their participation in this Gesy,” the group said.The group had announced last week it would interrupt its dialogue with HIO, but its spokesman, Dr Achilelas Perdios, told media on Friday that they were now ready to enter into consultations with the authority.But Perdios’ statements did not find other Pasin members in agreement, leading to his resignation.Perdios told state broadcaster CyBC on Saturday that he cannot make negative statements against Gesy before he has in front of him all the details that the group has requested from the HIO.Some private hospitals do not agree with the philosophy of the scheme, he said, and they have to come out and say it.Perdios said that, without dialogue, it would not be possible to move things forward.The new, temporary spokesman of Pasin, Marinos Soteriou, told CyBC that the scheme favours state hospitals at the expense of quality healthcare services but also healthy competition.Soteriou said that the scheme was incomplete and problematic while it grants “superpowers” to HIO.Despite the group’s stance, the Limassol-based German Oncology Centre said this week it would like to join Gesy, following the announcement last week of the Mediterranean Hospital of Cyprus in the same district that it was backing the scheme.Pasin’s latest announcement follows that of the medical association that urged its members on Friday not to join Gesy, citing the refusal of the government to allow them the flexibility of being able to enter into private practice within Gesy, and increasing the budget of the scheme.Health Minister, Constantinos Ioannou, said that in the event not enough doctors express interest in joining Gesy, the HIO was working on a contingency plan, which is to be presented to him next week.Following speculations that this would include bringing in doctors from Greece, CyMA’s deputy head, Marios Karaiskakis, warned that the association has the authority not to grant licences for medical practice if it deems that this would threaten the local physicians.“In other words, are they telling us they would bring in strike-breakers?” Karaiskakis told Alpha TV on Friday.You May LikeSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

News Two consecutive draws and a little rant by Cristiano Ronaldo have put Real Madrid on the verge of an early crisis Real Madrid got off to a good start this season but setbacks against Villarreal and Las Palmas in the Spanish league combined with Ronaldo’s angry reaction after being substituted on Saturday have created an air of turmoil The Spanish powerhouse still holds the league lead but its advantage over Barcelona was cut to one point after the recent lackluster performances Madrid also struggled against Sporting Lisbon in its Champions League opener when it needed two late goals to salvage a 2-1 win at home The biggest problem facing coach Zinedine Zidane may be Ronaldo who was visibly upset after being replaced in the 72nd minute in the 2-2 draw at Las Palmas The Portuguese forward did not look at Zidane as they quickly shook hands after the substitution Zidane was the one who moved toward Ronaldo and extended his hand Ronaldo had walked briskly toward the sideline after seeing he was being replaced by youngster Lucas Vazquez sputtering words to himself and not hiding his disappointment He continued talking apparently in Portuguese on his way to the bench where he watched the rest of the game After the match Zidane tried to downplay Ronaldo’s attitude saying he didn’t think the player was angry at being replaced The coach said he took his star forward out to rest him ahead of the team’s Champions League match at Borussia Dortmund “We’ve got a game on Tuesday and I thought that it was the right time to bring him off” Zidane said “That’s all there is to it He always wants to play and be out there on the pitch but I’ve also got to think about the player and he needed to rest and think about Tuesday” Madrid was winning 2-1 when Ronaldo was replaced and Las Palmas equalized near the end to keep Madrid winless for the second straight match “We’re relaxed” Zidane said “We are working hard and focused on what we’re doing We have to realize that you can’t always win but we’re on the right track” Ronaldo did not play well but set up the team’s second goal on Saturday scored by Karim Benzema just minutes before being taken off the field The forward has been supportive of Zidane since the former player took over the squad last season always praising his way of coaching There had never been any signs of discontent from Ronaldo before Saturday’s
