City Council defers vote again

first_imgParking meter sagaThe Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC) has further delayed discussions of the Parking Meter Project. At the Council’s statutory meeting late Monday afternoon, Councillors heard that September 7 is the new date when the matter will be discussed. The announcement was disclosed by Mayor Patricia Chase Green, who told Councillors that come next week Thursday; they must be fully prepared to discuss the project.Mayor Patricia Chase-GreenThe Parking Meter Project attracted much controversy since its introduction in May 2016. However, it was when it officially rolled out in the latter part of January 2017, that citizens formed large protests where hundreds of people from various cross-sections of society gathered in front of City Hall for several weeks, calling for a rescinding of the parking meter contract. These sustained protests resulted in Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan ordering that the paid parking initiative be suspended and a committee be formed to have the contract revised.At Monday’s meeting, the Mayor clarified that it was the elected Council which agreed to suspend the project. At the last meeting held on August 17, 2017, recommendations were compiled by the Parking Meter Negotiation Committee, headed by Councillor Malcom Ferreira, where it was suggested that the Council could discontinue the metered parking system with Smart City Solutions (SCS). Other recommendations had included continuing the metered parking system in accordance to law – relating to a legal and transparent process as outlined in Municipal and District Councils Act, Chapter 28:01, and to continue the metered parking system independently or await the outcome of pending court proceedings on the subject matter.Other concerns in the report included the transparency of the process, whether due diligence was observed – especially since the Legal Advisor of the Council indicated that he was not a part of the initial process of the formation of the contract; the termination clause; the dispute resolution/jurisdiction since the contract in its present state calls for arbitration to be conducted in a foreign court, the seize and sell clause, harsh penalties and booting.Other issues that the Committee had noted highlighted that the contract include rates for residential parking, rates for commercial parking, group rates for taxis and minibuses, the revenue split of 80-20 per cent – with SCS holding majority – duration of the contract, tax concessions, monopoly on parking and location of meters. Additionally, transfer of time on cards, impact on income, parking spaces for parking not in good conditions, size of parking space, wages, exemptions, traffic congestion in city, car park issues, attitude of SCS staff, economic report, designated areas for schools/differently abled, distance of parking meters from spaces, placement of meters, and the fact that the main partner was a foreign company were all matters that received attention. According to the report, the Council can choose to continue the Metered Parking System with Smart City Solutions. However, to move forward under that option, the Committee must be mandated to renegotiate on Council’s behalf so as to address and resolve all of the points/findings listed in this report [concerns].The original parking meter contract, which has to date not been publicly released, has a duration of 20 years, upon which the Council has the option to renew. Furthermore, it obligates parkers to pay $200 per hour of parking. Failure to do so will result in the respective vehicle being clamped, or possibly seized.last_img read more

Tiger sends out warning at US Open

first_img0Shares0000SAN FRANCISCO, USA, June 15- Tiger Woods made his best start to a US Open in a decade on Thursday, firing a one-under 69 on San Francisco’s brutal Olympic Club course to send out a stark warning to the rest of the field.That early morning broadside put the 36-year-old former world No.1 into equal second place, three strokes behind surprise first round leader, 27-year-old US qualifier Michael Thompson. The confident manner Woods opened the tournament will boost his hopes of winning a record-equalling fourth US Open title on Sunday, four years after he won the last of his 14 majors at nearby Pebble Beach.“I had a good game plan going in and I executed all the way through and ended up with a score under par. Which was nice,” Woods said.“I felt very pleased with every facet of my game and I stayed very patient out there.”Level with Woods on 69 was 2001 USPGA champion David Toms, a veteran of 45 who has won just one tournament in the last six years as he battled a succession of injuries, US outsider Nick Watney and former European No.1 Justin Rose of England.There then followed an international mix of players on level-par 70 — 17-year-old US amateur Beau Hossler, US qualifier Jason Bohn, J.B. Park of South Korea, Sweden’s Robert Karlsson and Alistair Presnell of Australia.But it was a crushing day for two of the top American hopes – Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson – who were in the day’s glamour grouping alongside Woods.Five-time US Open runner-up Mickelson struggled badly, losing a ball in the gnarled Monterey Cypress trees with his opening drive and never really settling into his game after that as he limped along to a six-over 76.Masters champion Bubba Watson fared even worse as he sprayed the ball off the tee with his distinctive pink driver en route to a horrendous 78.English hopes were left bruised and battered also as world No 1 Luke Donald had a day to forget with nine bogeys in a demoralising 79 that will once again raise question-marks over whether he can one day win a major title.Countryman and playing partner Lee Westwood battled back from a poor start for a creditable 73, while the third member of the afternoon’s top grouping — defending champion Rory McIlroy — also struggled.The 23-year-old Ulsterman produced none of the fireworks we saw from him last year at Congressional in Washington as he stumbled along to a 77 and a battle on his hands just to make the cut.With only a few groupings left out on the course, only five players had managed to complete their rounds under par, testimony to the toughness of the rolling par-70 Lake Course, which is hosting the US Open for the fifth time.Woods was coming off a win in his last tournament, The Memorial, but has struggled for consistency of late, best illustrated by a tie for 40th in the Masters in April – the worst performance of his professional career in the year’s first major.But, starting from the ninth hole, he was immediately into his stride splitting the first four fairways as he opened with five straight pars.A bogey on the 14th was cancelled by a birdie on the par-five 17th where he holed from four feet as he went out in level par 36.Woods then stayed steady through the Lake Course’s feared opening six holes highlighted by back-to-back bidies at the fourth and fifth — where he sunk putts from 10 feet and then 30 feet.He dropped one though at the next after failing to get up and down from a bunker having pushed his approach shot, and parred his way in from there.The unheralded Thompson, a runner-up in the US Amateur Championship here in 2007, had seven birdies against three bogeys in his round of 66.“This is one of my favorite golf courses. So I’ve got good feelings coming in here. I just got the putter hot today,” he said.Toms said that on such a demanding course, total concentration was the key.“You really just have to concentrate, give it your all on every shot and never give in to the golf course because it will punish you if your attitude is not good, if your concentration is not good,” he said.Watney owed his presence so high up the leaderboard to an albatross two on the par-five 17th – just the third double-eagle in US Open history.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Tigers extend success

first_img• Photo Gallery: San Marino vs. South Pasadena SOUTH PASADENA – The South Pasadena girls soccer team quietly is climbing back into the Rio Hondo League race. The Tigers stretched their unbeaten streak to six on Wednesday with a 2-1 victory over visiting San Marino to stay within striking distance of league leaders La Ca?ada and Monrovia. La Ca ada (11-4-3, 5-0-2, 12 points) and Monrovia (9-4-4, 4-0-3, 11 points) are first and second, respectively, but the Tigers (8-6-7, 4-1-2, 10 points) are within a game of first with a match against La Ca ada next week. La Ca ada and Monrovia still have to play each other in the league finale. It was the difference-maker because Alison Chang answered for San Marino (4-8-4, 1-4-2) in the 51st minute to cut the Tigers’ lead to 2-1. “It’s always nice to score in your last game against San Marino,” the Navy-bound McKenzie said. “It was a big win for us. We started (the year) slow because we have so many new players, but our chemistry is getting better.” In a league filled with solid defensive teams, Cassidy said McKenzie has been their rock. “I’ll put her on anyone’s best player and she’ll shut them down,” Cassidy said. “To get a goal from her is a plus, but without the things she does on defense, we wouldn’t be in the position we are now.” fred.robledo@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 4485 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Tigers took a 1-0 lead on a beautiful combination that started from Erin Eastwood along the side. Eastwood slid a ball in front to Aubree Gorman, who one-touched it to Aubrey Thurman. That gave Morgan little time to react as Thurman punched it home in the 18th minute for her seventh league goal. The Tigers doubled their lead in the 50th minute when sweeper Ashley McKenzie found a loose ball rolling directly toward her. McKenzie didn’t waste any time and quickly re-directed a beautiful right-footed shot to the upper corner of the net for a 2-0 lead. It was her first goal of the season. last_img read more

Enrique admits Celta outclassed Barca

first_img0Shares0000Barcelona’s coach Luis Enrique watches the end of their Spanish La Liga match against Celta Vigo, at the Balaidos stadium in Vigo, on September 23, 2015. PHOTO/AFPMADRID, September 24- Barcelona coach Luis Enrique hailed the quality displayed by his former club Celta Vigo as they thrashed the European champions 4-1 on Wednesday.Enrique’s men had arrived in Galicia with a 100 percent record in La Liga, but were well beaten as goals from Nolito and John Guidetti either side of a double from former Liverpool striker Iago Aspas sealed a famous night for Celta. “When a team has been better than you there is no more to add,” said Enrique, who took charge of Celta during the 2013-14 season before joining Barca.“I prefer to be beaten by a team that plays like Celta, without any traps and purely on football grounds.“I congratulate them and urge them to continue playing like that.”Barca have now conceded four goals in a game three times in just nine matches this season.However, Javier Mascherano claimed it was being outplayed that concerned him more than last season’s treble winners’ defensive woes.“It always hurts to lose at Barca. We have a thick skin and all we can do now is think about Saturday and remember what happened last season,” said the Argentine.“There can be a day when the opponent is better and beats you to every ball. Part of it is our fault and part of it is to their credit.“We don’t have any excuses. They beat us soundly and we have to keep working. The most worrying thing is that we feel outplayed.”Celta also stunned Barca 1-0 at the Camp Nou last season and their coach Eduardo Berizzo believes the fearlessness of their performance was worthy of such a sensational result.“There were special circumstances and a bit of luck that went our way,” he said.“Our idea is to play the way we did tonight, trying to take the game to the opponent no matter who we are playing.“The players have delighted the fans. Football and the people present tonight were the winners.“I congratulate the players because they were perfect.”Barca’s defeat allowed Real Madrid to go top of the table for the first time this season as they were 2-1 victors at Athletic Bilbao thanks to Karim Benzema’s double.The Frenchman scored either side of Sabin Merino’s second-half equaliser to take his tally to six goals in his last five games.“We knew how difficult it would be because we knew how much the fans would drive Athletic forward,” said Madrid boss Rafael Benitez.“We showed our quality in the first-half and then our character and intensity in the second.“To win like this reinforces the confidence in the team.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

West Ham may have to offer Dimitri Payet a new contract to keep him at the club, admits Slaven Bilic

first_img1 Dimitri Payet Slaven Bilic admits West Ham may have to offer Dimitri Payet an improved contract to ensure they keep him at the club.French playmaker Payet is only seven months into a five-year deal following his £10.75million summer switch from Marseille.But such has been the 28-year-old’s impact at Upton Park, Bilic knows he will have admirers among Europe’s elite.“The club is moving, with the new stadium and everything, and the most important move is to keep your best players,” said Bilic.“Dimitri Payet is our best player. And of course I would love to have him happy, long-term, at the club.“He only signed a few months ago, but he has made a huge impact and while he has a long contract he is in a good position.“We all want to keep him for a long, long time.”Payet has scored six goals and helped create plenty more this season, although he was not at his best during last week’s win over Aston Villa or Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Southampton.But Bilic, who has compared the midfielder to Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil, insists people cannot expect miracles from him every week.“It’s hard if you set yourself a standard, like the second half against Bournemouth when he scored a great free-kick and made a brilliant assist,” added the Hammers boss.“I can’t expect from him every week to score goals and make some great things.“Ozil? He did it at the weekend but two weeks ago he didn’t. Those positions are the most difficult ones. Did David Silva do it at the weekend? No, he didn’t. Is he dropped? No, he’s a great player.”Payet is expected to start Tuesday’s FA Cup fourth-round replay against Liverpool but defender James Tomkins is out with a calf injury.last_img read more

1920s cottages to be demolished

first_imgGLENDALE – In the early 1920s, a widow from Missouri with $50,000 in oil profits began building houses in Glendale for Christian missionaries who needed a place to rest after overseas work in Asia and Africa. A chapel for the former nondenominational missionary colony was demolished years ago, but 17 homes still stand today. Now, they face the wrecking ball. The homes are slated for demolition in the next few weeks to make room for an office building and to expand a skilled nursing facility. A consultant for the company planning the project, Glendale-based Healthcare Management Services LLC, has found the homes have little historic significance. The stripped-down houses are not architecturally rare, and none of the former residents shows up on historical Who’s Who listings. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant But preservationists contend the houses in the 300 block of Mission Road, which were built by a widow named Jennie Suppes, are worth saving. “This is Mission Road for a reason,” said Glendale preservationist Alan Leib. “It’s not Mission Road because it was named after (the) tortilla company or something.” Earlier this month, a city design-review board voted 4-1 to allow demolition to proceed. Healthcare Management Services officials were asked to take pictures of the homes for the city library’s historical archive. “All of those buildings could have been Glendale’s first historic district,” said John LoCascio, an architect and board member with the Glendale Historical Society. “But it’s just one of those things where everything fell through the cracks in the system.” Rodney Khan, a consultant for Healthcare Management Services, stood by the historical analysis done for the project by Glendale-based EP Associates. “They’re just older houses that I guess some folks may consider to be important to them,” Khan said. “But from a historic-preservation point of view, it never was raised to the level of significance that (the houses) needed to be maintained.” The company will demolish some of the homes to expand Leisure Glen Care Center, which already has 94 beds, by adding 33 beds. “Things don’t last forever,” City Councilman Bob Yousefian said about the houses. “And there are times that you preserve things, and there are times that you take pictures and appreciate it and then move on. … You can’t preserve everything, and these (houses) were not even in good shape.” The homes, which were built in craftsman-bungalow, Spanish colonial and Tudor styles, are boarded up and fenced off. Several were built with clapboard or stucco exteriors. The city is dotted with homes built in similar styles. Even Leib, a writer who has mounted a campaign to save the homes since he found out last July they were threatened, admitted they do not stand out architecturally. But he argued they are an important part of history, comparing them to the Americana at Brand project. They are building “a fake Americana, and they tear down a real Americana,” Leib said. “The fake Americana is a retail environment, and the real Americana is an entire neighborhood built in the 1920s.” EP Associates did not find evidence of any similar missionary colonies still in existence. Preservationists say that points to the homes’ significance. “A lot of different religious sects, different religious beliefs, found Southern California to be a really receptive place as opposed to other parts of the country,” said Jay Platt, preservation advocate for the Los Angeles Conservancy. “So it ties into our regional history as well as the history of Glendale.” Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

District school is 1st in 42 years

It had been scheduled to open last school year, but was delayed by a shortage of construction workers, school officials said. Even before the campus opened for classes, construction began on a $2.43 million eight-classroom addition. Teachers are scheduled to move into that building this week. The classroom wing was omitted when school construction started in 2003 because there was not enough tax revenue to pay for it, but a rise in property values and higher tax assessments led to the selling of additional construction bonds earlier than expected. Westpark is named after the housing development in which it was built and is the district’s first new school since Rosamond High was built in 1964. The school’s construction is being paid for in part with funds from a bond measure approved by voters in November 2002. The $12 million bond measure approved in 2002 was also used to pay off about half of $10.3 million in high-interest debt incurred to build and improve schools to meet demands of a booming enrollment in the early 1990s. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

“Descent” is a disturbing and scare-soaked horror flick

first_img Something could be made from the movie’s all-female cast getting stuck in tight passageways and (some of them, at least) being eventually covered in blood, a la Sissy Spacek’s Carrie awakening to her womanhood, but it really doesn’t pay to think too hard about stuff like that. Marshall’s movie is all about the ravenous nasties living in darkness who lick their chops as the women drop down fArther beneath the surface and the lights begin to dim.. The women are barely distinguishable as characters (all that darkness doesn’t help) with the exceptions of Sarah and Juno, whose status as best friends is tenuous at best. Marshall telegraphs the root cause of the problem, but that doesn’t make Juno any less a piece of work. The character can rightly stand beside Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley Marshall has clearly watched “Alien” a time or two as one of the great female butt-kickers in recent film, a woman who takes an inordinate amount of pleasure in the sound of snapping bones.. Marshall does, too, which makes “The Descent” one of the more disturbing B-movies to come around in a very long time.. 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

There aren’t any dueling banjos in the blood-soaked shocker “The Descent,” but the movie again serves as a reminder that those looking to take extreme-sports vacations would do well to avoid the Appalachian wilderness. Neil Marshall’s chilling thrill ride wowed U.K. horror fans when it was released last summer, and it’s sure to do the same here. You’d do well to curl up in a fetal position from the get-go it’ll save you the time and effort later.. Writer-director Marshall, known in horror circles for his 2002 werewolf classic “Dog Soldiers” (which never made it across the Atlantic), takes all of about three minutes to land his first bloody blow, which puts a young woman, Sarah (Shauna Macdonald), in the land of perpetual nightmares. A year later, Sarah’s thrill-seeking gal pals decide that she needs to get over the grieving, so they go on a caving expedition in the Appalachians. Bad idea.. Actually, the bad idea was control freak Juno’s (Natalie Mendoza) decision to deviate from the planned itinerary and explore a cave that isn’t in the guidebook. Her mantra: If there’s no risk, what’s the point? Unfortunately, none of the six women notice the bloody handprints embedded in the cave’s walls.

Scott Brown warns of ‘phenomenal’ Celtic squad

first_img“We’ve had a great pre-season, we need to make sure we kick on now in the Champions League qualifiers and in the league.“The squad is probably about as fit and strong as it’s been in a long time.“Lewis [Morgan] has came in and he’s had a wee niggle but he’s looked strong aswell, so it will be good to see him in full flow.As well as the signature of Edouard, Celtic have also made significant investment elsewhere.The Scottish champions have spent a significant sum on a new playing surface and Brown believes they will reap the rewards from the improved pitch.He said: “The main thing for us this season is the pitch.“The pitch is going to be in good condition all the way through the season.“Last year it was a bit damp and wet , it was slow playing it stopped our style of play a wee bit.“Here’s hoping we can go through the whole season with no excuses, we’ve got a great pitch, a great manager and a fantastic group of lads.Last season, Celtic made the Champions League group stage, and won every domestic trophy, but Brown is refusing to set targets and said they’ll just take it on a game to game basis.He said “The aim this season is to take every game as it comes.“We need to make sure we go as far as we can in the qualifiers and try and get Champions League football.“Then on Saturday start the league campaign with a victory and a good performance. Scott Brown said the Celtic squad is ‘phenomenal’ right now and warned that they’re the strongest they’ve been in a long time.The Parkhead club scooped all three domestic honours last term to complete a historic double treble, but Brown said they’re in even better shape now ahead of the Premiership campaign.Whilst the club have made only one summer signing with Odsonne Edouard joining on a permanent deal, the Celtic captain reckons that there is more than enough quality already within their ranks.He said: “The squad is phenomenal just now to be perfectly honest. “I think fitness levels it’s right up there.“Quality wise it’s got to be up there as well.“We’ve got Ryan Christie, we’ve got Scott Allan that’s came back, we have Michael Johnson coming through, and Calvin Miller who’s pushing on as well.“I’m sure everyone will get the chance with the games we have coming up.last_img read more

Fredericksburg will only get 59 seconds and New Pekin will get just over 30 seconds of total darkness. Those areas to the south like Palmyra, Corydon, Clarksville, Jeffersonville and New Albany will only get to see 99 percent of the eclipse – with a sliver of sunlight showing. Those in Louisville will experience a little more than they did this week – getting 98 percent coverage, compared to 94 percent coverage this week. Here is a list of the other cities and towns in the area and their duration and start times (in universal time) Bedford – 3 minutes 43.6 secondsC1: 17:48:42.2 UTC2: 19:04:40.5 UTC3: 19:08:24.1 UTC4: 20:22:16 UTMitchell – 3 minutes 28.8 secondsC1: 17:48:31.5 UTC2: 19:04:40.5 UTC3: 19:08:09.3 UTC4: 20:22:11.8 UTJasper – 3 minutes and 15.4 secondsC1: 17:47:20.7 UTC2: 19:03:46 UTC3: 19:07:01.4 UTC4: 20:21:26.3 UTMedora – 3 minutes and 14.8 secondsC1: 17:49:07.6 UTC2: 19:05:20.6 UTC3: 19:08:35.4 UTC4: 20:22:38 UTBrownstown – 3 minutes 12.9 secondsC1: 17:49:22.7 UTC2: 19:05:35 UTC3: 19:08:47.9 UTC4: 20:22:48.3 UTVallonia – 3 minutes 11.4 secondsC1: 17:49:16.7 UTC2: 19:05:30.6 UTC3: 19:08:42 UTC4: 20:22:44.6 UT French Lick – 3 minutes 12 secondsC1: 17:48:03.1 UTC2: 19:04:25.5 UTC3: 19:07:37.5 UTC4: 20:21:55.3 UTSeymour – 3 minutes 9.8 secondsC1: 17:49:46.1 UTC2: 19:05:57.3 UTC3: 19:09:07.1 UTC4: 20:23:04.2 UTPaoli – 2 minutes 54.3 secondsC1: 17:48:18.2 UTC2: 19:04:49 UTC3: 19:07:43.2 UTC4: 20:22:07.4 UTCampbellsburg – 2 minutes 50.5 secondsC1: 17:48:45 UTC2: 19:05:14.6 UTC3: 19:08:05.2 UTC4: 20:22:25.7 UTPlattsburg – 2 minutes 43.9 secondsC1: 17:49:07 UTC2: 19:05:37.7 UTC3: 19:08:21.6 UTC4: 20:22:41 UTLivonia – 2 minutes 25.7 secondsC1: 17:48:34.5 UTC2: 19:05:19.2 UTC3: 19:07:44.9 UTC4: 20:22:20.8 UTLittle York – 2 minutes and 4 secondsC1: 17:49:21.6 UTC2: 19:06:12.4 UTC3: 19:08:16.4 UTC4: 20:22:53.6 UTSALEM – 2 minutes 3.7 secondsC1: 17:48:56.1 UTC2: 19:05:50.1 UT C3: 19:07:53.8 UT C4: 20:22:36.6 UT English – 1 minute 40.9 secondsC1: 17:47:59.1 UTC2: 19:05:12 UTC3: 19:06:52.9 UTC4: 20:21:59.4 UTSouth Boston – 1 minute 21.5 secondsC1: 17:49:05 UTC2: 19:06:20.3 UTC3: 19:07:41.8 UTC4: 20:22:44.4 UTLeota – 1 minute 19.3 secondsC1: 17:49:23 UTC2: 19:06:37.2 UTC3: 19:07:56.5 UTC4: 20:22:56.4 UTMilltown – 1 minute 15.4 secondsC1: 17:48:14.2 UTC2: 19:05:38.7 UTC3: 19:06:54.1 UTC4: 20:22:10.5 UTSOUTHERN MOST TOTAL ECLIPSE VIEWINGFREDERICKSBURG – 59.8 secondsC1: 17:48:33.4 UTC2: 19:06:03.7 UTC3: 19:07:03.5 UTC4: 20:22:23.8 UTPEKIN – 35.1 secondsC1: 17:48:55.1 UTC2: 19:06:35.4 UTC3: 19:07:10.5 UTC4: 20:22:38.7 UTOUTSIDE OF THE TOTAL ECLIPSE AREAMilltown – only 99 percent magnitudePalmyra – only 99 percent magnitudeBorden – only 99 percent magnitudeUnderwood – only 99 percent magnitudeLouisville – 98 percent In case you didn’t see the total eclipse in most of the WSLM Listening area earlier this week, you’ll have a good chance in seven years. On April 8, 2024, the moon will cross in front of the sun in the Kentuckiana area and give Hoosiers a taste of a total eclipse. Bloomington is right along the sweet spot and will experience more darkness than most everyone else around with 4 minutes 2.5 seconds of “Totality.”last_img read more

Ryan McHugh to miss ‘three to four weeks’ with ankle injury

first_imgRyan McHugh is set to be out of action for around a month after suffering a tear of an ankle tendon on Sunday.By Chris McNulty, Donegal Sport HubMcHugh had to come off ten minutes from the end of Donegal’s Allianz League clash with Monaghan at Fr Tierney Park in Ballyshannon after going over awkwardly. Donegal team doctor Kevin Moran put his foot into a protective boot immediately and the player had treatment at University Ulster, Jordanstown – where he attends college – on Monday.The Kilcar man had a subsequent scan at the Affidea clinic in Letterkenny that has showed a tear of an ankle tendon.The 2016 GAA Young Player of the Year, who was walking with the aid of a crutch as he attended last night’s Ulster U21 semi-final between Donegal and Cavan – which was postponed late in the evening – has been told that he will be absent for ‘three to four weeks’.McHugh will miss Donegal’s Allianz League game against Mayo this Sunday and will also sit out Sunday-week’s League final, should Donegal qualify. However, he should make a return to action for Kilcar’s opening game in the 2017 Donegal SFC against Gaoth Dobhair in early May and will be well on track to line out for Donegal against Antrim on May 21 in the Ulster SFC quarter-final.Ryan McHugh to miss ‘three to four weeks’ with ankle injury was last modified: March 30th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Allianz LeagueAntrimdonegalkilcarMayoMonaghanRory GallagherRyan McHughlast_img read more

The disconnect between the skills that get you hired and the jobs most workers have

first_imgWow, that was a long post title. Sorry. The post won’t be that long at all, trust me.All I want you to do is look at two charts and then draw your own conclusions about the significance, if any.The first, courtesy of the world’s largest professional network, LinkedIn, who published some data they call ‘The 25 Hottest Skills That Got People Hired in 2014’, (from an analysis of member skills, employment changes, and recruiter interest on LinkedIn). Here is the chart:Now for the second chart I’d like to bring to your attention, from the Bureau of Labor Statistics a look at the Top 10 occupations with the highest employment (dated from May 2013, so it is slightly older than the LinkedIn data, but it was the latest I could find after about 5 minutes of exhaustive research)Here goes:See any differences between what gets people hired, at least people on LinkedIn, and the kinds of jobs that are held by the largest numbers of people in the USA? These Top 10 occupations make up about 22% of overall US employment, in case you were wondering.Wonder how far down on the BLS list (and you can check the full list of occupations as defined by the BLS here), you have to go before you run in to ‘Statistical Analysis and Data Mining’, the top ‘hot’ skill for 2014 as per LinkedIn. I will save you a click and let you know that all the occupations that the BLS rolls up into ‘Computer and Mathematical Operations’, (where most of LinkedIn’s Top Hot skills would likely map), account for about 3.7M workers, that is just under 3% of all the jobs in the country.Ok, since I said I was going to just show the charts and leave it up to you to think about, I better shut up.Have a fantastic day. And don’t spend so much time on LinkedIn.last_img read more

The Latest Buzz: Orszag Budgets for Caffeine Genetic Marker

first_imgPeter Orszag, the high-energy director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, recently shared some good news with Politico. No, he hasn’t solved the country’s economic problems. But he’s learned that his genetics won’t be crimping a caffeine habit that fuels 80-hour work weeks spent trying to erase a trillion-dollar deficit. While attending a conference, Orszag learned from biologist Craig Venter that he could get screened for a genetic marker that can raise the risk of heart disease when lots of caffeine is consumed. Orszag, who drinks vast amounts of Diet Coke, went ahead with the test. Luckily for him he’s in the clear. “If that test had come out the wrong way, you would not have wanted to be around me afterwards, because to give up caffeine would have been very painful,” Orszag told Politico reporter Mike Allen. The Office of Managament and Budget said that Orszag was traveling today and couldn’t provide additional details-including whether he’d learned anything about his genetic predisposition to other diseases. But ScienceInsider guesses that he was referring to a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) called rs762551 that modulates a caffeine metabolizing enzyme in the liver. Those with a “slow” metabolizing version who drink a few cups of coffee a day are at a higher risk of heart attacks.

How To Get The Coolest Tech Job Ever

first_imgWhen Steve Jobs returned to California in 1974 after dropping out of college, he found his first job through a newspaper ad that said, “Have fun, make money.”The employer was video game pioneer Atari. Jobs showed up in the company’s lobby wearing sandals and said he wouldn’t leave until he got hired. His long hair and sloppy appearance forced Atari’s chief engineer to choose between letting the “hippie kid” in the office, or calling the cops, Walter Isaacson recounts in his new biography of Jobs.Jobs was invited in and hired as a technician. He was paid $5 an hour.Since the 1970s, the appeal of having fun and making money by working in video games has only increased. “One of the things that attracts people to the industry is the coolness factor,” says Dan Fiden, a former Electronic Arts executive who recently left Gazillion Entertainment, a start-up gaming company, to join Signia Ventures, a venture capital firm where he will focus on gaming.“Anybody born since the mid-1970s grew up playing video games,” says Fiden. “This is an extremely important form of mass entertainment.” Gaming companies and start-ups are hiring like never before, and while gaming has become a $16 billion dollar industry, the sector still welcomes eccentric geeks.Whether you want to help work on Hollywood-esque productions like EA’s Battlefield 3, or help create the next Angry Birds or CityVille, opportunities are everywhere — if you’re willing to work for them.Here’s how:Go to Game SchoolThe number of college degree programs in gaming has increased by 37% since the 2009-2010 school year to 343 this year, according to the Entertainment Software Association, an industry trade group. Popular schools include the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, and Redmond, Washington’s DigiPen.The University of Central Florida launched its Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy in 2005, offering a Master’s of Science in Interactive Entertainment, The school’s annual class size has grown from 12 in 2005 to 66 this year, says Ben Noel, the school’s executive director and a former EA executive.The program offers three degree tracks:Art: This is for people who want to create the look of characters and environments in games. Students study character modeling, animation and object modeling, while also learning how to use graphic design and animation software like Maya.Production: For future producers and executive producers. “They whip people into shape, keep everything organized” and make sure games get finished on time, says Noel. Producers also learn scripting and help write the story lines and dialogue for games. Students learn game design, project management and business skills.Programmers: The dream builders. They take the game play ideas and storylines of producers and turn them into digital realities. Students learn to program game engines that can be used to make games for a variety of platforms, as well how to contribute to game design.For the first time this year, the Florida program began allowing students to choose between doing an internship in their last semester or joining the “venture track” team, using their time to put together a model to found their start-ups. About half of the class chose the venture track this year, Noel says.The average starting pay for a FIEA graduate is about $50,000. There can be a steep learning curve at gaming companies, where tight deadlines and a high-pressure working environment is the norm, Noel says.“Everyone’s skeptical of young people coming into the gaming industry,” Noel says. “They have to shine quick.” At the higher levels of the gaming industry, Noel says, an experienced executive producer at a company like EA can earn as much $250,000 a year, and a lead programmer can make as much as $200,000.Diversify Your SkillsObsessive video game players often think that their passion for playing games is enough to get a job, says Tracy Fullerton, director of the University of Southern California Game Innovation Lab and an associate professor at the college’s School of Cinematic Arts. Conversely, people who don’t consider themselves hard-core gamers imagine that there’s no place for them at a games company. In reality, a mix of the two types is ideal to get a job in the industry.“I always tell high school students who want a gaming career, study math and science,” Fullerton says. “But also become well-rounded people with great writing and communication skills, and a real interest in popular culture so they can become the Renaissance person who is the best of what a game designer can be.”Become a Server EngineerAs gaming consumers increasingly expect to have their games connected to the Internet, companies are competing to bring in the best server engineers. These folks can command high salaries and good equity packages because they’re in demand from all industries, Fiden says.“These people are in demand in the banking world, at the Amazons of the Web world, YouTube, the people who run the iTunes stores — everyone needs these people,” he says. The appeal of the gaming industry, though, is that compensation can be competitive with other industries. It also has the sexiness of working on products that millions of people use.For an even more granular look at the jobs gaming companies have, check out the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ recent report, “Work for Play: Careers in Video Game Development.”Try Data AnalyticsBecause games are going online, companies are collecting real-time statistics about what players are doing: when they find the game too difficult and put down the controller or what virtual goods they love to buy and which they avoid. The gaming industry needs data scientists, statisticians and product managers to make sense of all that information and incorporate it into changes within games.“There are roles that are critically important to the video game industry now that didn’t exist 10 years ago,” Fiden says.At Seattle’s PopCap Games, the company is looking for “monetization designers” who can figure out ways to create revenue streams from in -game purchases. A mixture of “analytical skills as well as pure game design skills” is ideal for people applying for these positions, says Pamela Sampel, head of global human resources.Job seekers with experience in Web services who understand how to analyze consumer behavior can make the switch into gaming. But these jobs are not for the faint-hearted.“The rate at which those companies evolve and the speed at which they work is just remarkable,” Fiden says. “Six months working at Zynga or Playdom is like six years working at some of the more traditional video game companies.” – Originally posted on FINS from the Wall Street Journal by Joseph Walkerlast_img read more

I regret snubbing PSG for Spurs – Villas-Boas

first_imgAndre Villas-Boas claims he rejected an approach from Paris Saint-Germain while manager of Tottenham, a move he claims he now regrets.Villas-Boas spent just over a year at Spurs, finishing fifth in 2012-13, inspired by the brilliant displays of Gareth Bale.Bale joined Real Madrid after the conclusion of the campaign, for a then-world record £86 million, and Spurs struggled thereafter. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Spurs were eighth when chairman Daniel Levy wielded his axe to sack Villas-Boas, with his last game coming at White Hart Lane; a 5-0 defeat to Liverpool. The club were also beaten 6-0 by Manchester City prior to the Portuguese leaving the club.However, he claims that PSG were interested in securing his services prior to his downfall in north London.“The first season was magnificent in all aspects. We had a ‘short’ squad in terms of depth, but a great spirit and so much will,” he told A Bola.“We picked up the most points in Spurs’ history with an incredible Bale who played behind Adebayor where he was free to move, but also with Lennon and Walker who allowed us to have a good counter-attacking 4-4-2.“I got an offer from Paris Saint-Germain, who wanted me, but I said no out of love for Tottenham. Maybe that was a mistake.”Villas-Boas has also criticised Spurs’ board for failing to back him properly in the transfer window prior to the 2013-14 season.Tottenham signed seven players following Bale’s departure, recruiting Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli, Vlad Chiriches, Paulinho, Roberto Soldado and Etienne Capoue, but Villas-Boas believes that the deals “destroyed” the club.He added: “In April, we started planning for the next season.”I offered some names to buy and sell, but during the transfer window, the board didn’t listen and quickly destroyed everything we’d created.”Villas-Boas has since managed Zenit in Russia and Shanghai SIPG.last_img read more

12 BCCI state units submit four-point suggestion ahead of SC hearing

first_imgA day before Supreme Court’s hearing on implementation of constitutional reforms, BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary on Thursday informed that 12 out of the 37 state units (including North Eastern States) have submitted a common four-point suggestion to amicus curiae Gopal Subramanium.During the last SC hearing on May 1, the three-member bench headed by CJI Deepak Mishra had instructed all the affiliated units of BCCI to file their suggestions with regards to clauses which they are finding practically difficult to implement.Accordingly, 12 affiliated units — Andhra, Assam, Goa, Jharkhand, Kerala, Mumbai, Rajasthan, Railways, Tripura, Universities, Uttar Pradesh, Vidarbha — have submitted their suggestions to the amicus curiae and they have reached a common ground.”The four points that the affiliated units want to be reconsidered are – one state one vote’, cooling-off period (after every three years), constitution of apex council, distribution of power and functions between elected representatives and professionals,” Choudhary told at hurriedly organised media conference.Contrary to perceptions that he did not show enough will to implement the reforms, Choudhary said that he has been constantly working with the state associations to reach a common ground.”I made an initiative to get in touch with state associations to work further. As many as 12 full members have come around to that view. Their agreement to the subject is in writing. They have also said in their letter of agreement that the matter may finally be brought to the notice of SC.”On May 1, the court itself directed any further suggestions be handed over to amicus curiae. I made sure my suggestions reached the amicus curiae.”advertisementThe acting secretary Choudhary’s media briefing today was even more significant as the Committee of Administrators (CoA) in its seventh status report had sought his removal along with two of his colleagues — acting president CK Khanna and treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhry.Interestingly, though, in an earlier status report (fourth), CoA had praised the former Jharkhand top cop for trying to bring the units around in incorporating the Lodha reforms in the new constitution.Asked as to why the CoA termed him a hindrance, Choudhary said: “The hindrance that you are talking about is non-existent. Had there been a hindrance on my part, I wouldn’t have been able to bring to you written commitment (of implementation of Lodha reforms) of 12 members. Majority in the board will go with this template.”Choudhary today made it clear that he has done his bit in trying to ensure that affiliated units implement all reforms which are practicable.”This process of reforms has been on from January 2017. The court had asked the office bearers (president, secretary and treasurer) to place an undertaking, stating their complete commitment (in implementing Lodha Reforms) within four weeks. All the three of us gave our undertaking in black and white,” Choudhary said.”After the general body meetings of BCCI, the SC also desired that the office-bearers put their suggestions on the draft constitution on record. We put our suggestions on record. I did so on October 12, 2017, and that is still awaiting adjudication.”Choudhary also explained some of the practical difficulties including that of a cooling off period of three years after every term as an office bearer.”If you look at the suggestion of cooling off period after every term, then you will have new faces after every three years and there will be no continuity,” he said.One of the massive bone of contentions is the distribution of powers between professional appointees (CEO, CFO) and elected office bearers. With CEO Rahul Johri being entrusted with the power to take all policy decisions, the office bearers under CoA regime have been rendered ineffective.”There are many aspects which require approvals on important issues which may impact the finances and the policies of the board, which is what the scheme suggests. There has to be some provisions about the decisions that will be taken by professional appointees.”About the formation of apex council, Choudhary said,”The apex council has provision for only one member representative from state units. India being such a huge country geographically, we have suggested that if at least one representative from each of the six zones (including North East) are included in it.”On suggestions of going back to national panel of five selectors from the present three, Choudhary said: “Yes, there is a suggestion considering the number of matches being played but if you see, we are doing fine with three,” he concluded.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more

This is important news for the global health community–especially in light of Melinda Gates’ recent announcement of her decision to make family planning her signature issue and primary public health priority.From the Time Magazine article about the study:The study involved 7,486 women participating in the Contraceptive Choice Project, run by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The women, aged 14 to 45, were given their choice of contraception for free and then tracked for up to three years for unintended pregnancy. The results, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, found that longer-lasting contraceptives were up to 20 times more effective — that is, women using IUDs, implants or hormone injections were up to 20 times less likely to get pregnant — after three years than the shorter-acting methods of birth control.Read the study here.A number of news organizations have written about the study:Time Magazine, Which Birth Control Works Best?

The project is also examining how these interventions can best be adopted and scaled up in resource poor settings to benefit women and children. As part of that process, the ACC team has been researching care delivery around the world. Today, we have published eight case studies highlighting various methods of delivering antenatal and postnatal care in a variety of settings:Focused antenatal care in Tanzania—Delivering individualized, targeted, high-quality careGroup care: Alternative models of care delivery to increase women’s access, engagement, and satisfactionHealth Extension Workers in Ethiopia— Delivering community-based antenatal and postnatal careJacaranda Health—A model for sustainable, affordable, high-quality maternal health care for Nairobi’s low-income womenLady Health Workers in Pakistan—Improving access to health care for rural women and familiesPostnatal care in Nepal—Components of care, implementation challenges, and success factorsThe Developing Families Center—Providing maternal and child care to low-income families in Washington, D.C.The Manoshi project—Bringing quality maternity care to poor women in urban BangladeshMembers of the ACC project team will be attending the ICM Congress in Prague, Czech Republic next week. These case studies will be discussed in detail during our session on Thursday, 5 June, 8:30am – 12:00pm in Room 4.3.

first_imgPlanning a donor acquisition strategy is similar to planning any other campaign. Start off by reviewing your previous efforts and results. What worked? What didn’t? Your data is a great guide to determining new donor goals.Step 1: Review your current data.Use your donor management system to track information on your current donors and what campaigns attracted their attention and inspired them to give. Find ways to adapt that messaging to reach people unfamiliar with your organization.Look at both your quantitative and qualitative donor data. What trends and patterns do you see? Where did your current donors come from? What motivates them to give? Seek out similar people to grow your donor base.Pro Tip: If you don’t know why your current donors contribute, you may want to hit pause on your acquisition campaign and focus on donor cultivation and retention instead. No point finding new donors only to lose the ones you already have.Step 2: Make a plan based on your findings.Once you’ve reviewed your data, develop a strategy that integrates your development and communications departments. Three essential questions to answer as you plan your approach:How will you research prospects?What’s the best way to approach them?How will you track progress and measure success?An integrated communications strategy involves direct mail, email blasts, social media, and even advertising if it’s in your budget. The purpose is to increase brand awareness and recognition. That way, prospects will recognize you across channels.Step 3: Perform targeted outreach.Now it’s time to get the word out. An awareness campaign is the first touch in donor prospecting. People can’t give to your organization if they don’t know you exist.Amplify awareness by harnessing the power of search engine optimization (SEO) to improve your positioning in online search results.Google AdWords and social media ad campaigns are great ways to capture active donors and amplify awareness online for a small fee. Promote an individual tweet or boost a Facebook post to increase followers or website traffic.Step 4: Keep it simple.It may seem obvious but make it easy to donate. Incorporate these key methods into your online donation process.Feature a donation button prominently on your website.Make your online donation page visually appealing and easy to find and navigate.Clearly identify various donor levels and their respective benefits.Highlight a suggested giving level on your donation page.Encourage monthly giving.Make sure your donation page is secure and mobile-friendly.Include your Charity Navigator or GuideStar rating for additional credibility.Begin engaging donors immediately following their donation with a thank you message on your online donation confirmation page.Invite donors to share their support on social media and join your email list.Incorporate these steps into your next acquisition campaign and see the difference for yourself.

International Day of the Midwife: How Integrating Midwifery Care Can Improve Maternal and Newborn Health

first_img ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read: Posted on May 4, 2018May 4, 2018By: Kayla McGowan, Project Coordinator, Women and Health Initiative, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public HealthClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)The Maternal Health Task Force’s Kayla McGowan recently had the pleasure of interviewing Saraswathi Vedam, Principal Investigator, Birth Place Lab, and Associate Professor, Division of Midwifery, Faculty of Medicine, University of British Columbia about her innovative study assessing the integration of midwifery across the United States (U.S.).KM: Your recent study, Mapping integration of midwives across the United States: Impact on access, equity, and outcomes, published in PLOS ONE took a first-ever look into the status of midwifery care in the health system and birth outcomes in every U.S. state. What drove you and your team of epidemiology and health policy researchers to conduct this research?SV: The idea for the AIM Mapping study started at a multi-disciplinary meeting we had back in 2011, the Home Birth Summit, where we had leaders from all kinds of perspectives, including clinicians—doctors, midwives and nurses—as well as health administrators, liability specialists, insurers, policymakers and researchers. Most importantly, we had an equal representation from consumers themselves and consumer advocates, so we had the whole system in the room—everybody for whom these issues of birth place have relevance. We realized that we were really talking about the whole maternity care system. There were many cross-cutting themes wherever people delivered.KM: And what came out of that meeting?SV: We found that a key challenge to delivering high quality care was the degree of integration, meaning the degree of communication and collaboration and systems that facilitated smooth transition from one setting to another or one provider to another or one system to another—that’s where the areas of disconnect, disarticulation and sometimes conflict often were.Our team—consisting of research, regulation/licensure and consumer experts—believed that if we could first define what we meant by integration, then we could start to see if there was a connection between model of care and outcomes.KM: Your team ranked each state according to the Midwifery Integration Scoring System (MISS), which measured scope of practice, autonomy, regulations and other indicators related to midwifery regulation, to get an evidence-based picture of the level of access to midwifery care in the context of state health systems. What were some of the states with both high and low scores? Were there any regional trends?SV: We found that there was a range of state integration scores from 17-61, but the total possible score was 100 points, so no state in the U.S. got a really high score. Across the states, Washington, New Mexico and Oregon had higher scores, while South Dakota, Alabama, North Carolina had the lowest scores. You can find an individual state score by looking at their report card on the website for my lab.As for regional trends, it depends on the outcome that you are looking at, but in general, the highest quartile of scores and optimal outcomes were in the Pacific Northwest, New Mexico, New York and some places in New England. Generally speaking, the Southeast had the lowest scores and worst outcomes, but again, it depends on the outcome you are interested in.Midwifery Integration Map – Access and Integration Maternity Care Mapping (AIMM) StudyKM: What were the most important findings related to MISS scores and maternal and newborn health outcomes? Was any of this surprising?SV: The findings line up with international data (from The Lancet Series on Midwifery and Cochrane systematic review of midwife-led care). The U.S. is later to analyze this and has lower utilization of midwives as part of the health system compared to other high-resource countries. Other high-resource countries in which midwives have a more active role in the health system benefit from better outcomes. Studies have shown that when midwives are part of the system, there is a clear trend toward increased cost-effectiveness, and fewer interventions. Very serious outcomes such as preterm birth and mortality also seem to reduce, and it seems to be true whether or not you are looking at low-risk populations.Our findings are not surprising considering what has been shown for midwifery care globally. It’s not a big surprise to see that there were higher rates of breastfeeding, lower rates of preterm birth, lower rates of cesarean sections or induction, higher rates of spontaneous vaginal delivery and lower rates of neonatal mortality in states where integration of midwives was high.When you look globally, when midwives are involved in the care, everybody benefits, including those with moderate or greater risk factors for complications. It’s not that midwives are necessarily better at providing acute care, it’s that the model of care allows for more relationship-based care and more continuity. People tend to have more of a longitudinal relationship with care providers and are more likely to share information that allows for prevention or treatment. It’s not a zero-sum game. It’s not midwives or doctors or midwives or specialists or family doctors or obstetricians—when everybody collaborates, when everybody is part of the system offering care, both outcomes and experience improve.KM: How might better integration of midwives in the U.S. address persistent racial disparities in maternal health—in which African American women experience a two to four times higher risk than white women for both maternal and infant mortality?SV: We realized that integration of midwives is not the whole story with respect to health disparities, so we looked a little further. Maternal and fetal wellbeing are affected by a complex set of inter-related factors, so, since. there has been a lot of discussion in the literature and press about the differential increased rates in adverse outcomes that African American families are experiencing in the U.S, we decided to focus on race. We found that states that reported higher rates of black births were also the states with poorer birth outcomes and lower integration. We wanted to discover how much of those differences in outcomes were accounted for by race alone, and how much of those differences could be accounted for by the degree of integration. After controlling for the effects of race, we found that about 38% of variance in outcomes could be accounted for by race alone. An additional 10-12% of the improvement in outcomes could be accounted for by the degree of integration of midwives. That is, if midwives were part of the system, outcomes such as preterm birth, neonatal mortality and breastfeeding improved by an additional 10-12%. It doesn’t tell the whole story, but it tells an important part of the story.KM: The study found that states with higher MISS scores had a greater concentration of midwives per state and higher proportions of midwife-attended births across settings. How might states with lower MISS scores adapt to follow this model?SV: Midwives want to practice to their full ability, so many are going to set up practices in places where they are able to do that autonomously. States that have lower integration scores and concomitant low density of midwives could maybe look at developing local midwifery education programs as well as looking into their statutes and regulations—and their interpretations—to see how those are creating barriers to practice and access across populations.KM: Findings from this study also informed an interactive map providing data on midwifery integration, as well as density of midwives, and access to midwife attendants across birth settings by state. What are the next steps in implementing these findings and tools?SV: We encourage people to explore the interactive map and state report cards to understand the impact of regulation in their own communities. We hope that this analysis will help to inform initiatives to improve access to and integration of all maternity providers across settings.It’s important to consider that regulations are constantly changing, and these tools are based on statewide data. The AIM Mapping Study findings can support evidence-based development of a regulatory and practice environment that supports interprofessional collaboration, and consequently better health for families.KM: What are the implications for maternal and newborn health in the U.S.? Are there any key takeaways that can be applied to maternal and newborn health in other areas of the world?SV: The key implications are that access to midwifery care has to be part of the conversation whenever we are looking at maternal and newborn health outcomes anywhere in the world. By applying the International Confederation of Midwives’ standards on a country-by-country basis, along with the MISS scoring system, we’ll start to understand how we can better utilize midwives to address some of the most challenging problems in maternal and newborn health.—Read the full paper: Mapping integration of midwives across the United States: Impact on access, equity, and outcomesTools[Video] Mapping Collaboration Across Birth SettingsState Report CardsInteractive MapShare this:last_img read more

Oklahoma Just Ran 1 Of The Worst Plays Of The Season At Kansas

(Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)Oklahoma just had about as awful of a sequence as any team could have in the second quarter against Kansas. The Sooners went from a first-and-goal opportunity to punting on fourth down.Jalen Hurts had the Sooners in position to increase their lead before halftime. Unfortunately an offensive holding call pushed the offense back to the 17-yard line.Following the holding penalty, the Sooners ran a trick play that resulted in a loss of 25 yards.The original design was for CeeDee Lamb to receive the ball on a double reserve. Once the Jayhawks sniffed out that play, the speedy wideout lateraled the ball to Hurts. Kansas brought down Hurts around midfield to set up third and goal. On third down, Oklahoma was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct.Here is the play that really hurt Oklahoma’s drive:Yikes…(via @KU_Football)pic.twitter.com/8BrCliqnr1— B/R Betting (@br_betting) October 5, 2019Lincoln Riley is one of the brightest offensive minds in football. There’s no denying that it’s an interesting play design, but the execution was poor.Oklahoma responded nicely on the next drive as Hurts connected on a touchdown pass to Lamb.Even though Oklahoma entered this game as massive favorites, the Big 12 powerhouse only leads Kansas by 14 points.The second half of action will be available on ABC.last_img read more

He led the AL with a .423 batting average in the month.HONOR FOR DIAZMariners: Closer Edwin Diaz was named AL Reliever of the Month for the second consecutive month after going 9 for 9 in save opportunities and posting a 0.00 ERA in 10 appearances in July. Diaz leads the majors with 40 saves. “He had a good month,” Servais said. “He’s had a lot of good months. I hope he’s got two more good months in him.”UP NEXTBlue Jays: LHP Ryan Borucki (0-2, 2.83) will get the start for Toronto in the second game of this four-game series. Borucki has earned quality starts in five of his six starts this season, the best percentage of any Blue Jays starter.Mariners: LHP Marco Gonzales (12-5, 3.37) starts for Seattle on Friday night. Gonzales has won five consecutive starts, allowing six total earned runs across 34 1/3 innings pitched in that span. Hernandez, whose spot in the Seattle starting rotation has been in question of late, gave up two runs in five innings.“I thought Felix kept us in the game,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “It wasn’t easy for him. I think he threw 90-92 pitches in five innings, but he gave us a chance, and, I think, coming into the game tonight, that was what we were hoping for.”The Mariners cut the lead to 4-3 in the bottom of the eighth when Cruz hit a solo homer to right field off Toronto reliever Joe Biagini.

Now, Toronto Jays might have the missing piece it’s been looking for in the starting rotation, and Hauschild has a lot of phone calls and text messages to return.“It’s pretty crazy,” said Hauschild, who last pitched in the majors on April 19, 2017. “It kind of feels like a dream, just based off my last week. A couple days ago I was just waiting to figure out which team I was playing for. And now I’m in the big leagues. So it’s definitely a whirlwind of emotions going through.” Follow Published: August 2, 2018, 11:38pm Hauschild (1-0) entered the game in the second inning after Nelson Cruz’s two-run homer off reliever-turned-spot-starter Tyler Clippard gave the Mariners a quick 2-0 lead in the first. Hauschild put up zeroes for the next six innings while spotting a 90 mph fastball and putting away hitters with an effective slider, limiting the Mariners to four singles and one walk while striking out five.“Sometimes things are meant to be,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. “I thought he did a tremendous job. He threw strikes, he threw anything at any time, which is key to pitch in the big leagues. He looked like he belonged.”The Blue Jays tied the score at 2-2 in the top of the second against Mariners starter Felix Hernandez. Yangervis Solarte led off with a single and Teoscar Hernandez, who had four hits in the game, doubled him to third. With one out, Luke Maile walked to load the bases, and Devon Travis had a two-run single.But with two outs in the seventh, a runner on first base and the score still tied 2-all, Morales hit a fastball from Juan Nicasio (1-6) over the wall in right-center field to give the Blue Jays the cushion they’d need. It was Morales’ 13th home run of the season. 3 Photos By DOUG MIILLER, Associated Press Receive latest stories and local news in your email:last_img read more

Serena matches her easiest win over Venus in US Open rout

first_img 2 Photos Receive latest stories and local news in your email: By BRIAN MAHONEY, Associated Press Serena, who turns 37 next month, leads the series 18-12 with her sister, 11-5 in Grand Slam tournaments. But this one wasn’t expected to be so easy, not with Serena still working her way back into form after returning to the tour in the spring.But this was the type of tennis that has brought her to 23 Grand Slam singles titles, the ability to pound balls all over the court and chase down the rare shots that looked like they might get past her.“This was my best match since I returned,” he said. “I worked for it. I worked really hard these last three or four months. That’s life, you have to keep working hard no matter ups or downs you have. That’s what I’ve been doing.”She pounded 10 aces to just one for Venus, the No. 16 seed who was perhaps a little drained after two tough matches to begin the tournament, including a three-setter against 2004 U.S. Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova in her opener. Serena had an easier time in the first two rounds, though that was expected to change Friday under the lights in Arthur Ashe Stadium. They had combined for eight titles in Flushing Meadows, six by Serena, and each had beaten the other in a U.S. Open final.But there was no beating Serena on this night, and the discouraged look on Venus’ face across much of the match indicated she seemed to realize it.“I mean, she played so well, I never got to really even touch any balls,” said Venus, a semifinalist at the U.S. Open last year. “When your opponent plays like that, it’s not really anything to be upset about.”It looked as if Serena could have trouble when, in the second game of the match, her right ankle turned awkwardly when Venus hit behind her on a shot. Serena stood near the baseline with her back to the court for quite a few seconds, then motioned to the chair umpire that she wanted to the see the trainer at the next changeover.

TPI Partner of the Month – Carnival Cruise Line

first_imgJune 1st, 2018 – Summer is here and so is our new Partner of the Month. For the month of June, Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) will be Travel Planner’s International’s (TPI) Partner of the Month. Throughout the month, we’ll expose CCL to our 4,000+ agents in our “surround-sound” approach – featured on our agent-only portal, email signatures, and a private Facebook Live broadcasted to over 1,850 agents, among other avenues. Why Them?We’re obsessed with our Rockstar travel agents. We know they’re more than just independent contractors, they’re small business owners running a travel agency! Our Partner of the Month should have the same attitude. This made picking CCL a no-brainer. “[TPI agents] are a really great group of people who share the same enthusiasm and drive for building their travel business,” said Kirsten Sanchez, Business Development Director, Carnival Cruise Line. She adds, “I have never met a group of individuals with such passion for what they do. Carnival would not be the cruise line that we are without travel agents like TPI agents.” Sanchez is just as enthusiastic about being a resource to our TPI agents. In April, she hosted our Vacation Nights, a talk-show style presentation where agents and their clients can join in-house or tune in via Livestream.com. She’s also interacted with our agents on our hosted Facebook Lives, at ship inspections, and other TPI events. “At Carnival, we continue to be dedicated to your success and we hope to be your partner in Fun for many years to come,” said Sanchez. Being a resource and dedicated to the agent’s success is exactly why our agents keeping booking with CCL. Simply ask Adrian Teixeira, owner of NexCruise and TPI Agent. “Having worked directly with Carnival when I first started in this industry has given me a great advantage,” Teixeira said. “And it was one of the best experiences I had.” To find out why travel agents keep joining the TPI family, visit our Facebook pageand for more information on CCL, click here.last_img read more

How Bertony Faustin of Abbey Creek Vineyard is Working to Diversify Wine

first_img The Manual Podcast Throwbacks: Revisiting our 50th Episode and Portland, Oregon A Quick and Easy Guide to Popular German Wine Varietals Hops and Terroir: Why the Beer World is Embracing the Wine Term The chances are good that you don’t know Bertony Faustin, at least not yet. But you probably should. Oregon’s first Black winemaker and vineyard owner is shaking up a scene that is notoriously older, male, and very white. Faustin makes wine at Abbey Creek Vineyard in the Willamette Valley. He’s the product of Haitian-immigrant parents and grew up in Brooklyn. He’s a self-taught viticulturist and vintner. And he doesn’t drink alcohol. The man’s story is so unique that he self-produced a film about it. Red, White, and Black sheds light on underrepresented individuals making big waves within the world of wine. It revolves around Faustin, André Mack of Maison Noir, Remy Drabkin of Remy Wines, Jarod Sleet of ROCO, and the late Jesus Guillén of White Rose Estate. The film presents the significant feats these folks have achieved amid the extra obstacles that come from an environment lacking genuine equity.Stereotypes are certainly being rewritten in the food and drink realm but there’s always room for more progress. In wine, it’s clear that we’re no longer drinking Merlot in stuffy tasting rooms to the sounds of classical music. Millennials want the weird stuff celebrity sommeliers covet, which leads to more experimentation in the cellar and more options for consumers.In wine, where there’s so much fuss about expression, diversity ought to be welcomed with the widest of arms.But inequality remains. Simply Google your favorite winery and check out the “About Us” section. At Abbey Creek, the vibe is decidedly and refreshingly different. The atmosphere is relaxed, the wine is good, and there’s typically a big beat wafting out of the tasting room speakers.In wine, where there’s so much fuss about expression, diversity ought to be welcomed with the widest of arms. Different perspectives lead to different flavors and overall advancement. True terroir has to reflect not only a specific place but the people who inhabit it.Bertony Faustin of Abbey Creek Vineyard Chad Brown Photography of Soul RiverWhile Faustin doesn’t think a whole lot has changed thus far, there is room for optimism. More and more industry types are taking on the subject, including leading writers like Jon Bonné. Faustin is now a member of the Oregon Winegrowers Association, affording an even bigger platform for potential change. “I now have a seat at the proverbial table,” he says. “Being recognized as a pioneer has given me a voice in sharing the message of the lack of diversity and inclusion in our industry. That voice now has a megaphone.” Abbey Creek is on the verge of releasing its newest Chardonnay (named #daddyphatsacs) and the label will welcome a new Portland location sometime this summer. Along the way, expect to hear more from the outspoken Faustin as he tries to bring a scene buried in traditionalism into the 21st century.

20 Things Every Man Should Own

first_imgWhat a man really needs are those things that will improve his quality of life; things that make tasks easier to tackle, that bring genuine joy, and that are made well enough to last for years, offering true value.Listen, a good cigar is a fine thing, and you can’t beat a great ax for chopping wood. However, not every man enjoys a smoke, and some men live in homes without fireplaces. While lovely, you don’t need to own stogies or hatchets. Or Maseratis. But here are 20 things every man should own.Great WatchEvery man should own at least one good watch. You don’t need a $5,000 Rolex, but you should probably spend at least $500 or so on your finest chronometer. At that price point, you are assured of a watch that will work well for years and you can find dozens of watchmakers producing gorgeous timepieces in that range. As for the size of the face, the type of band, the function, the features, and so on, pick a watch that suits your style, but don’t go cheap; you’ll have a great watch until the end of — wait for it — time.Recommendation: For me, it’s a William Wood some days, a Martenero others. Here are some of The Manual’s top picks.Well-made BlazerEven if you wear a formal jacket all of once or twice a year, you should have a fine dress coat at the ready so you can always look your best. A great blazer can dress up a pair of nice jeans and blend seamlessly with fine slacks. You can wear blazers with ties, tees, and anything in between. You could easily spend a couple of thousand dollars on a lifetime purchase or you can get away with spending a couple hundred.Recommendation: Pricey? Look at a jacket from Joe Bananas. Affordable? Check out the likes of J. Crew. Here’s how to style your blazer once you get one.Nice SocksA good pair of socks will keep your feet comfortable all day long whether you’re hiking, strolling, or manning a desk. They can also provide that pop of personality when they sneak out down there between foot and cuff. Good socks are an affordable luxury to which you will quickly grow accustomed.Recommendation: I recommend Nice Laundry because they offer everything from crew socks to no-shows to running socks to dress socks to monogrammed, personalized socks. All of them are not only supremely comfortable but well priced, too.Comfortable Dress ShoesYou surely have several pairs of dress shoes, likely covering the bases in brown, black, two-tone, laces, loafers, and so on. But until you have at least one pair of very nice and very comfortable shoes, your wardrobe is incomplete. You need a pair of dress shoes you can wear from morning to night, at the office or on the go, without blisters or soreness. Be prepared to shell out some change here.Recommendation: Try Wolf & Shepherd’s large catalog of “Ridiculously Comfortable Dress Shoes” or go right for Wolverine’s 1000 Mile Split Toe Oxford. Here’s everything you need to know about the different styles.Running ShoesMe? I try to run five times a week and I own more athletic shoes and apparel than I can wear in a month. It’s a bit of a problem, really, but I just keep finding new brands and soon enough I have more shorts and shirts and headbands and so on. However, you don’t need all that gear to get in a good workout; you do absolutely need at least one very high-quality pair of running shoes. Inferior shoes do you a great disservice, potentiality leading to injuries both chronic and acute. If you run often, plan to get new shoes at least annually; better yet, get two pairs (at least) and alternate.Recommendation: If you run on varied terrain, consider a pair of hybrid sneakers designed to work both on trail and street.Pocket KnifeWhen I say pocket knife, frankly I’m only talking about one brand: the OG, the Swiss Army Knife from Victorinox. The brand has been making pocket knives since 1884 and is still going strong today. Whether you choose a 2019 Alox Limited Edition in a striking Champagne gold finish or the classic red Swiss Army color for your pocket knife, you’ll be getting a tool that you will never again want to be without. (except in a TSA line). With the right knife, you can slice an apple, open a bottle, saw through a branch, scale a fish, or file your nails. Choose the configuration that’s right for you and cherish it for life.Recommendation: If the classic Swiss Army Knife isn’t your style, here are some more of The Manual’s favorites.MultitoolLeatherman Leatherman/FacebookYou don’t have to spend much to get a decent, reliable multitool, but you do need to get one of these combination pliers/blades/screwdrivers/etc. tools. You have a complete toolkit, you say? Well, then leave the multitool in your car or briefcase — and make sure you tuck one in with your camping gear, too. Take that, unexpected survival ordeal.Recommendation: Gerber makes a great multitool that sells for just $31, while the OG Leatherman sells for $70. Here are some more suggestions.LuggageIf you travel all the time, great luggage is a must. If you are only on the road a few days a year, you should still treat yourself to fine luggage, as it will then last for years.Recommendation: OGIO makes some of the most logically designed roll-aboard suitcases I’ve ever used, with the Alpha Convoy 522 Travel Bag being a prime example of durable, intuitive luggage. As for a backpack that can serve as a briefcase, overnight bag, or even a light-duty hiking pack, the Cotopaxi Nazca 24L Travel Pack is the top of the line.DecanterManny Rodriguez/Getty ImagesWhether you like wine or whiskey or you even just want a fancy way to serve water, every man should own at least one good decanter. Don’t assume the only option for a fine decanter is a classic cut crystal vessel with a glass stopper — there are a wide variety of options available.Recommendation: High Camp makes the stainless steel Firelight Flask that can hold 750 ml of liquid (aka a standard bottle of wine or spirits) and that comes with drinking glasses magnetically attached to each end. It looks good enough to sit on your bar beside your other fancy glasses but is rugged enough to bring along on a camping trip.Whiskey GlassesDon’t pour a finger or two of good whiskey into an improper glass. (Nor should you pour any other fine spirit into a middling receptacle, either.) A good set of whiskey glasses will enhance the whole sipping experience and look great on your bar when you’re not enjoying a dram or two with friends or with the company of a good book.Recommendation: The Old Fashioned set from Marquis by Waterford.ArtA man should have at least one piece of artwork in his home that he’s damn proud to show off and loves to look at. It doesn’t have to be a famous masterpiece, and it doesn’t have to be large and eye-catching. It doesn’t matter if it’s a painting, a print, a sculpture, or what have you — every man’s home should have at least one object that serves no purpose beyond its own aesthetics and the feelings it inspires.Recommendation: If you’re not sure where to start your collection, go with UGallery. The company offers original paintings from artists of all levels of acclaim and price point. You can customize the art-buying experience in myriad ways, from subject matter to canvas size to style.Music PlayerA man needs a way to crank out tunes (or listen to a podcast or NPR or whatnot. Even if you’re not a diehard audiophile, you need at least one good way to play the music the mood calls for, whether the mood is rocking out with friends, romancing that special someone, or holiday cheer.Recommendation: Whether it’s a sound bar that can amp up your TV-watching experience, a Bluetooth speaker you can play anywhere, or a combined record/cassette/CD/radio/Bluetooth combo, you should have a decent sound system through which you can pipe some music.A Few Great BooksIf you don’t have at least a small collection of books in your home — and preferably on subtle display — then sir, you’re doing it wrong. If you need to jump start your book collection, go with a great coffee table book, a classic collection of short stories, and a few novels that stand the test of time.Recommendation: Consider The Complete Works of William Shakespeare.High-Quality Hygiene ProductsWith a few great personal grooming products, you will look and feel your best. Don’t settle for a soap that claims to clean hair, face, and body — you’re worth a few extra dollars for high-quality products that keep you clean and fresh in the short term and help preserve the youth and vitality of your skin over the years. Not every brand works for every man, so shop around some.Recommendation: I’ll say that now, well into my 30s, I’ve become partial to Rugged + Dapper. The facial cleanser is indeed rugged, with plenty exfoliating power, while moisturizers seem to be keeping my crowfeet and forehead lines at bay.Good Set of TowelsPerhaps a bathrobe is the more commonly thought of manly post-shower linen, but you don’t actually need a bathrobe. You will, however, use a towel almost every day of your life, so you owe it to yourself to procure a few fine towels.Recommendation: Personally, ever since I started using Casamera towels, I haven’t looked back. Made from Egyptian cotton, they really are “softer and more plush than your favorite stolen hotel towel” as the site says.GrillGrilling is the quintessential manly method of cooking, but gender doesn’t much matter here — everyone should have a great grill. Grilled food is simply the best of food, especially when you’re talking meat. And even if you live in a smaller apartment, if you have a patio, balcony, or anywhere you can get outside, you have room for a fine grill.Recommendation: Traeger’s Ranger Pellet Grill will fit in your closet when you’re not cooking but has a 184-square-inch cooking surface when set up, letting you grill six burgers at once.Quality CookwareIf you cook frequently and enjoy culinary pursuits, you probably already have a fine set of pots and pans. If not, you should own one anyway. You never know when a significant other or friend may hope to whip up a fancy meal even if you’re not much of a cook yourself. You also may find that with the right tools, you develop a sudden love for cooking. If your pots and pans are a mishmash of brands and quality, consider cleaning house and starting over with a complete set.Recommendation: With this 10-piece Calphalon set, you’ll be in good shape for years no matter how much (or how little) you cook.Great Chef KnifeYes, you should spend well over $100 on at least one great kitchen knife, a blade perfect for chopping and slicing, for meat and veggies, and for all sorts of cuisine prep.Recommendation: If you make it the eight-inch WÜSTHOF CLASSIC IKON Cook’s Knife, you’re doing it right. Just a public service announcement first: WUSTHOF knives arrive shockingly sharp.Comfortable MattressIt’s hard to overstate the value of a superlative mattress. A great mattress will last the better part of a decade. Let’s assume eight years, though — that’s 2,922 days, assuming two leap years, meaning a $2,500 mattress will cost you less than a dollar a day. Or hey, go much cheaper, but not too cheap — great sleep is priceless.Recommendation: Sure, an MLILY Fusion Luxe will cost you about $2,500 for a queen-sized unit, but it might also change your life. (Actually, if you’ll take it from me, it will.)SheetsYou’re not going to put those threadbare old sheets on your brand-new top quality mattress, are you? If you value comfort and sleep quality, you need to spend a few (dozen) dollars and get high-quality sheets that’ll last for years.Recommendation: The Lofton Organic Sheets from Saatva Dreams are cool and breathable, helping your body maintain an even thermo-regulation all night long. 11 Best Gins for a Refreshing Gin and Tonic Editors’ Recommendations 5 Classic Whiskey Cocktails You Should Know How to Make Beyond the basics of food, water, and shelter, what does a man really need?

Airlines May Soon Weigh Passengers to Cut Fuel Costs and Emissions

How to Enjoy Your Campfires Responsibly The 200-Horsepower Vanquish Vanqraft VQ16 Is a Boat-Sized Jet Ski Times are tough in the travel industry. Airlines, in particular, are getting creative with where and how they pinch their pennies (like standing-room-only cabins). Now, one tech startup is pushing a way to cut the fat by literally cutting the fat — or, more specifically, measuring it. Their plan? To weigh every passenger before they board.British-based Fuel Matrix is in talks with airports in the United Kingdom to find discreet ways to weigh passengers. How they’ll be weighed has yet to be determined. It would likely occur using pressure-sensitive pads during the check-in process or through full-body scanning technology. The company promises that all of the data collected would be kept strictly confidential under Europe’s recent GDPR program designed to protect public information.Suhyeon ChoiThe concept boils down to simple economics. Heavier planes require more fuel and carrying and burning more fuel costs more money. The more accurately an airline can predict the fuel needed for each flight, the better it can predict how much fuel each plane actually needs. The problem is that most European airlines are relying on 10-year-old charts that overstate how much the average passenger and their luggage weighs. That means most planes are carrying excess fuel unnecessarily and, in turn, wasting money in the process.Fuel Matrix’s CEO, Roy Fuscone, confirms that if airlines knew they were carrying a lighter load, they could fly with less fuel. “It’s critical to know the actual weight an airline is carrying to ensure the correct fuel uplift,” he told Lonely Planet. The ideal weight for airlines is known as “zero-fuel weight,” which equals the weight of an airplane, plus all its passengers and contents, less the fuel weight. The more accurately they can predict this number, the more efficiently they can fly. Fuscone points out that this not only saves the airline money but substantially cuts carbon emissions as well.The concept isn’t new. In 2015, Uzbekistan Airways announced a new “flight safety” policy that included weighing passengers at check-in. Finnair piloted a program in 2017 to voluntarily weigh passengers to collect general data. It’s difficult, however, to imagine any U.S. airline making a similar move. In an age of rising air rage incidents and passengers being beaten into submission, domestic air carriers already have their hands full with maintaining a decent public image. Why add the potential for “fat-shaming” to the mix? Editors’ Recommendations last_img read more

You Can Still Road Trip Without Missing Work Thanks to the Kugelschiff

He relied on hidden storage, turning the space under the banquet and even under the floor into storage for the equipment needed to run the trailer off-grid. Each space in the trailer serves double duty. The built-in banquet is both meeting area and dining room. The desk in the office was built on custom pistons that allow it to be lowered and turned into the bed. The sink in the kitchen can be covered to turn the counter into extra workspace. It’s a cohesive design that naturally flows from one space into the next. But most impressive is the way Edmonds stylishly squeezed a home and office into such a small space without it feeling cramped.To create a sense of wholeness, the interior of the trailer is clad is glossy white-painted aluminum — mimicking the shine of the polished aluminum exterior. Cabinets and flooring are done in soft-grained white ash and countertops are white Corian. A bit of contrast was added through the use of warm gray upholstery on the built-in banquette seating. It all comes together to create a beautifully bright space with light bouncing off the walls and making the trailer feel spacious.The owner was drawn to Mid-Century Modern aesthetics and Edmonds made sure to incorporate a few classic touches like an Eero Saarinen Tulip Table in the dining/meeting area and an Eames chair for the office. These simple yet elegant pieces are the perfect finishing touches for the crisp, clean design of this unique home-and-office on wheels.Want a Bambi trailer of your own to turn into a mobile office?

Enter Edmonds + Lee Architects, an architectural firm that turned working from anywhere into a reality for one lucky client.An example of the architectural firm: Remember House, San Francisco, California Edmonds + Lee Architects, Joe FletcherStarting with a vintage 1960s Airstream Bambi II trailer, the team at Edmonds + Lee, headed by Lee Edmonds, transformed the interior into a flexible, go-anywhere live-work space. Through careful architectural decisions, thoughtful material selections, and an understanding of how space is used, the trailer became a stylish and functional home that allows the owner to live the dream — traveling to and working from wherever he chooses. Nicknamed The Kugelschiff (which translates to “bullet ship” from the original German), the trailer needed to serve myriad functions for the client. Along with being a place to call home and a mobile office, there needed to be a way to entertain a few guests or hold a meeting, connect to the Cloud, and function off-grid. Edmonds was able to meet every request by making each space multi-functional, incorporating solar power, and adding a cellular hot spot to connect to the internet, even in the middle of nowhere.

A Guide to Raw Denim Jean Selection and Care

first_img Portion Control: The Best Meal Prep Containers on the Market Iron Heart Indigo Super Slim TaperedAnd the heaviest denim we’re featuring today, weighing in at 21 ounces, these slim-cut jeans are made in Japan of Japanese selvage denim. They do feature a poly/cotton blend for added strength, are Sanforized and have been put through one industrial wash to minimize shrinkage. The fit is carefully tapered to the cuff to show off footwear. Nudie Jeans Co. Grim Trim Dry SelvageWeighing in at 13.5 ounces, Nudie’s been using Kaihara’s Japanese selvage denim since 2001: the Japanese have perfected the art of denim manufacturing, utilizing old denim looms and natural dyes, but these jeans are made in Italy, adding a bit of international know-how. Click through the link for an awesome time-lapse video of just how great a pair of faded jeans can look over time. $335 from Self Edge Levi’s Vintage Clothing 1947 501OK, put on the brakes — they’re still 501s, but at more than seven times the price? This is where we separate the denim men from the denim boys. Because Levi’s has been in business since 1853, they have the ability to draw on an unparalleled archive and re-create jeans that have occupied a special place in history. This particular pair is based on a 1947 model, which took advantage of post-war abundance and is made with all original features. The model includes watch pocket rivets and back pocket stitching (the Levi’s “Arcuate” branding was painted on during the war to economize) in what was then new double-needle technology. It also features selvedge denim from Cone Mills of North Carolina. 3×1 M5 Low Rise Slim Jean Raw xx9903×1 offers a slim fit jean with a slinkier, lower rise than some of the more classic styles we’ve been showcasing here. Its 12.75-ounce weight offers raw denim’s credibility, with a more modern, edgier fit. The Best Black Jeans to Have You Stepping Out in Style Editors’ Recommendations $60 from Levi’s $285 from Levi’s How’s that old Ike and Tina Turner version of the song go? “We never ever do nothing nice and easy. We always do it nice and rough.” Seems like that’s an apt way to describe the way most of us approach our blue jeans. We want them to be soft and broken-in. We do it nice and easy by buying a pair that’s already been washed, ripped, and repaired, blended with stretch fiber for ease and shape retention — in plain words, letting somebody else handle the rough part. But for a more satisfying, personalized experience, we like doing it the old fashioned way: buying a pair of stiff, raw denim jeans and going through the nice and rough work of breaking them in for ourselves. These days, though, getting good quality denim that will last and stand up to some of the mistreatment you’re going to lay on it can be something of an investment. Think of it as buying one pair that you’ll be able to wear just about every day, as opposed to four pre-washed pair that will wear out after only a few seasons. There’s a lot of hype out there about the best way to condition a new pair of raw denim. Here we’ve reduced it down to some simple yet effective methods for getting the most out of your purchase, as well as a few suggestions for the best raw denim jeans that we think are worth your time, money, and affection. A Guide to Raw DenimMaterialsTo start, raw denim means that the cloth has never been washed. It goes straight from the loom to the sewer to you. Well, more or less, given a warehouse or two and a store somewhere along the way. Therefore, like any 100% cotton fabric, it’s going to shrink a bit after a good soak. Also, like just about any fabric without any spandex-like fibers to provide shape retention, denim will also stretch a bit as you wear it.  FitTo counter that shrinkage, use the following guide when buying: If you prefer a more fitted jean, buy a size larger than you normally would. If you like some room, go up two sizes. Be sure to allow a little extra length, too, especially if you are planning to roll the cuff (see below about selvedge) as jeans will also shrink lengthwise. Check to see if your jeans have been “Sanforized,” a trademarked treatment to pre-shrink denim and other natural fiber fabrics. If they have been treated with this process, go down one size for a fitted jean or buy your true size for a roomier fit. Jeans will initially be snug in the waist — which will feel uncomfortable at first — but as noted above, this is one of the places that will stretch out a bit with wear, conforming to your body (not to mention how it’s gonna fit your butt and thighs). Time for all those squats to pay off. WeightJust like at the gym, don’t be afraid of higher weights. The higher the denim’s weight, the higher the quality. Denim weights are described by the weight of a yard of the fabric, such as 12-ounce denim or 15-ounce denim. Anything below 12 ounces will break in faster, but it might not last as long. A denim shirt, for instance, might be 8-ounce fabric, so it’s softer, lighter, and easier to wear. Look for more durable ring-spun denim. Without going too deep into it, ring spinning is how the cotton fibers are actually spun into yarn before they are even woven into denim fabric. This method creates a stronger yarn than the more common open-end spinning. SelvedgeNow to truly earn your place as a raw denim aficionado, you’ll need to learn about selvedge (or “selvage,” depending). The term refers to the way fabric is woven, which results in a tightly bound edge at either end of the finished fabric that resists fraying. Quality denim makers utilize the fabric on the outside seam of jeans, putting the strong edge where it will see the most wear and tear. You can often spot a pair of selvedge jeans when the turned-up cuff shows off a colorful — usually bright red — stripe that marks the selvage edge. If you turn your jeans up and see machine stitching … turn them back. Get ‘em shortened to fit at the tailor. Don’t be that guy. SoakOnce you’ve brought the jeans back to their forever home, it’s time to set them up for maximum wearing pleasure, and it all starts with a good soak. The water temperature will determine not only how much the jeans will shrink, but also how much indigo dye will leach out of the fibers. Warm or hot water will draw out more color, and make the denim shrink more; cold water will minimize both color loss and shrinkage. Fill your tub with enough water to cover the jeans and drop them in and leave them for one to three hours — again, depending on how much you want the jeans to shrink. (You’ll hear stories about wearing the jeans while they soak: most denim experts chalk that up as an urban myth.)When the time is up, remove the jeans from the bath, let them air dry and then, when they are still a little damp, put them on for a little while and do some stretches, lunges, and squats to start the jeans conforming to your body. Author’s note: Some denim heads forgo the soak altogether, purchasing the right size to begin with and maintaining maximum color. End ResultAfter six to 12 months, these babies will caress your body like a second skin, creasing in all the right places, “remembering” your regular movements (as well as where you stash your wallet, phone, keys, etc.), and rewarding your devotion with some serious style crew.How to Wash Raw DenimAfter all these ablutions, do your jeans and the environment a favor: don’t wash them. No. Really. Sure, spot clean them now and then if you end up spilling something on them, but otherwise, wear them often and wait four months or more before the first wash. Hang them to air out between wearings to minimize odor. Use an odor-eliminating spray like Febreze, if necessary. Again, some people will recommend freezing jeans to kill odor-causing bacteria, but that’s denim urban myth number two. The bacteria just go dormant while they’re in the freezer and then become active again once you put them on. Besides, where will you keep the bottle of Stoli and all those Trader Joe’s frozen treats if your freezer’s filled with jeans? When it’s finally time, head back to the tub, fill it with cool water, and add a gentle soap like Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap, Woolite Dark Care, or really any kind of dishwashing liquid. Once the soap has thoroughly dissolved into the water, plunge your jeans in, gently agitate them, and allow them to soak for about 45 minutes. You may choose to turn them inside out half-way through to be sure that both inside and outside are spit-spot. Drain the tub and give the jeans several thorough rinses with clean, cool water to be sure to wash out any remaining dirt and soap. Wrap the jeans in a large towel (preferably an old one that nobody will mind if it turns blue) and give a gentle (emphasis on gentle) squeeze. This will get some of the water out without wrecking all that stretching and conforming to your body you’ve been working on all the months. Hang to dry. One closing thought; Watch out for your mother-in-law’s white leather couch or anybody’s light-colored furniture, rugs, etc., while you’re breaking in a new pair of raw denim jeans. The indigo dye can easily rub off on lighter fabrics and finishes and can be almost impossible to remove. Best Men’s Raw Denim JeansReady to brave the blue?

Callisthenic movement is meant to be done with control,” says Wright, which is why you can gain more stability and awareness of your body doing these exercises.“Neglecting the lower body” is the biggest mistake, according to Connellan. “Many calisthenics aficionados focus all of their time on their chest, arms, or abs and completely forget about their legs. Keep crushing those bodyweight squats until they’re perfect, and then you can move onto those elusive pistol squats.”OK, let’s do a workout. Which are the best calisthenics exercises?Muscle UpsPatrik Giardino/Getty ImagesLiles: One of the gold standards for true athleticism is the ability to pull yourself up over a bar. Think of it as an aggressive pullup into a tricep extension. Hanging from a bar, hyper-extend your trunk, use momentum from the hip flexion, simultaneously pull to swing your chest over the bar.

If you happened to be very limited with your flexibility and mobility, address that first before attempting anything explosive.”How can you find more calisthenics workouts?If you’re always on the move, use an online fitness platform that connects you to a personal trainer in exactly the training you’re looking for, i.e. Connellan on Livekick.

Like, Brad Pitt-in-Fight–Club jacked. Or Brad-Pitt-in-Snatch jacked. You get the picture.The Manual asked three professional trainers what exactly calisthenics is, the best moves, and realistic expectations to have when you ditch the dumbbells.What is calisthenics?“Calisthenics is simply body-weight exercises where gravity is the resistance you are working against,” explains Gerren Liles, Hyperwear athlete and Equinox master trainer. “Think of it as your body being its own gym.”“It can be practiced outdoors and is often referred to as a ‘street workout,’” says Ethan Connellan, Livekick fitness trainer and calisthenics bodybuilder. “One of the major benefits of this style of exercise is that it can be done anywhere, without any equipment.” Like in a hotel room or in front of the TV on football Sundays.“Think of it as your body being its own gym.”Breaking the boundaries of a standard gym, you may work your muscles more and therefore see more gains. (It’s all about the gains, kids.)Does calisthenics make you fit?“Calisthenics is great, particularly for men, because it can give you that ripped look,” says Liles.Connellan seconds that. “When I think of the most ridiculous bodies I’ve ever seen on a man, I think of gymnasts. And what makes up 99.9% of their routines? Calisthenics.” Connellan adds that “more often than not, calisthenics moves take more energy and cause you to burn more fuel during and after workouts.”For those already doing weights, there are still more benefits to be had. “For guys who lift a lot, calisthenics will help with the mobility and flexibility that’s needed to continue to let muscles grow,” says Paul Wright, coach at Tonal.Realistically, can you get the same results as using weights?“Calisthenics is limited in the gains … because the resistance cannot be increased in a meaningful way … gravity will always be what it is,” admits Liles. “One way to increase the intensity of calisthenics is by wearing a weighted vest.”Connellan says, “It’s true that when using only the weight of your body, you will reach a point where your muscles probably won’t grow any further without added resistance.” He suggests playing with elevated surfaces or changing the angle of an exercise.Further ReadingWhy You Should be Actively Stretching for a Better WorkoutHow to (Almost) Painlessly Improve Your RunningPre-Workout Meals that Make the Most of Your Hard Work How to Use a Vibrating Foam Roller Like Tom Brady Editors’ Recommendations last_img read more

Michael Vick Donates To New Football Field

first_imgYesterday, the Fairmount Park Conservancy and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation broke ground on the football field in North Philadelphia’s 87-acre Hunting Park thanks to a critical contribution from Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Michael Vick and his newly formed charity, the Team Vick Foundation.The $200,000 contribution marks the launch of the Foundation and its first major gift. The field will be named the Team Vick Field.The $1 million restoration of Hunting Park’s football field is the capstone project of Phase One of the Hunting Park Revitalization Project, a long-term comprehensive plan led by the Fairmount Park Conservancy to transform the park into a safe and well-maintained space that will provide a place for healthy recreation for children and families, bring neighborhoods together and serve as a catalyst for larger neighborhood renewal. Construction of football field the will be completed by late spring 2013.The football field restoration is also being funded by the City of Philadelphia; Commonwealth of Pennsylvania; JAWS Youth Playbook; LISC Philadelphia; The Philly Area Chevy Dealers’ EcoAd through CBS EcoMedia; and The Philadelphia Eagles.The Hunting Park Football field is home to the North Philly Aztecs youth football program, the first inner city youth football team to win a Pop Warner Championship. With more than 400 athletes in its football and cheerleading programs, the Aztecs are one of the largest youth athletic programs in Philadelphia. Yet, due to its deteriorating condition, the Aztecs have not played a game on their home field in nearly 20 years.Improvements to the football field include: drainage by elevating the field, new under-field drainage system, re-grading and resurfacing field and play areas, field lighting, installing goal posts and new scoreboard, leveling and paving of new track.Vick founded the Team Vick Foundation, a non-profit, 501c3 charity to provide second chances and support to individuals and communities who need it most in the summer of 2012. Committed to improving lives and communities, Vick’s vision and leadership is focused on improving livelihoods and communities through public service.

No obstructions to regrouping of peacekeepers in Eritrea UN says

22 February 2008With Eritrea still hindering the temporary relocation of United Nations peacekeepers to Ethiopia, the UN mission to the two countries said today that there were as yet no obstructions to its regrouping in the Eritrean capital of Asmara. UN convoys en route to Asmara are moving troops, equipment and supplies from all sectors of the Temporary Security Zone (TSZ) that divides the Horn of Africa countries which fought a bloody border war that ended in 2000, according to the UN Mission to Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE).Earlier this month, UNMEE decided to relocate to Ethiopia after Eritrea cut off diesel fuel supplies to the Mission, paralyzing the operation on that side of the border. Additionally, food stocks are also running extremely low for blue helmets after a commercial company supplying rations to UNMEE said it would no longer fulfil its contractual obligations. The mission’s personnel and equipment began regrouping this weekend in a bid to speed up the relocation. Yesterday, Edmond Mulet, Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO), briefed the Security Council on UNMEE’s temporary relocation efforts, after which Ambassador Ricardo Alberto Arias of Panama, which holds the rotating Council presidency, told journalists that the 15-member panel “condemned Eritrea’s systematic violations of successive Security Council resolutions.” read more

TSX lower as eurozone anxiety increases

The Toronto stock market was firmly in the red Tuesday amid mounting anxiety over the eurozone on word that Greek voters will head back to the polls now that attempts to form a coalition government have failed.The prospect of another vote has raised fears that Greece may walk away from its debts, meaning an exit from the euro currency would be likely, possibly damaging the eurozone and disrupting the wider global economy.The S&P/TSX composite index declined 70.17 points to 11,418.36 while the TSX Venture Exchange gave back 19.22 points to 1,284.62.Attempts to form a coalition government in Greece have failed since an inconclusive election May 6.Greek socialist leader Evangelos Venizelos said Tuesday that Greece is going to new elections after talks produced no deal.Although no party won enough seats in Greece’s recent election to form a government, voters gave support to political parties that want to cancel or renegotiate the terms of a massive financial bailout by international lenders that requires harsh austerity measures.“I’m not sure they really have a handle on what it is they’re doing or what they need to do or what they want to do,” said Fred Ketchen, manager of equity trading at Scotia Capital. “If they have another election, what will that prove? it may prove exactly what they did last time.”Some investors fear other weak euro countries such as Portugal or Ireland could eventually take the same path.The Canadian dollar lost 0.08 of a cent to 99.63 cents US. The loonie has been pressured over the past week as traders avoided riskier assets such as oil and metals and resource-based currencies including the loonie.American markets were little changed amid data showing U.S. retail sales rose 0.1 per cent in April, which met expectations. Other data showed that U.S. consumer prices were flat in April as lower gas prices offset higher food, housing costs.The Dow Jones industrials declined 12.72 points to 12,682.63. The Nasdaq composite index was up 6.23 points to 2,908.81 and the S&P 500 index was off 1.68 points to 1,336.67.Worries about Greece sent the TSX down 206 points Monday to its lowest level since early October. The showing left the main index almost four per cent below where it started the year. It has tumbled almost 10 per cent since its 2012 highs racked up in late February.Resource stocks led declines on the TSX on Tuesday. Oil and mining stocks had already taken a beating before the Greek crisis accelerated as data indicated slowing economic growth in the U.S. and China, in addition to the eurozone where tough austerity measures taken on to deal with high debt have strangled growth.“The commodity sectors of our market have really taken it on the chin,” added Ketchen, who noted that the metals and gold sectors have plunged more than 20 per cent this year while the energy sector has fallen by over 12 per cent.Commodity prices were weak after closing at their lowest level in months. The energy sector was off 1.12 per cent as the June crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange slipped eight cents to US$94.70 a barrel after closing Monday at its lowest level since just before Christmas. Canadian Natural Resources declined 46 cents to $29.79.The gold sector was down 1.14 per cent as bullion ticked $6.90 lower to US$1,554.10 an ounce after falling to its lowest close since late December. Barrick Gold faded 47 cents to $36.18.The base metals sector slipped 1.27 per cent as copper extended a series of losses that took the metal to its lowest level since mid-January on Monday. The July contract dipped four cents to US$3.52 a pound on Tuesday.Copper is viewed as an economic bellwether as it is used in so many industries. But prices have fallen sharply — down over seven per cent since May 1 alone — amid data showing a slowing global economy. Teck Resources was down 63 cents to $31.07.Financials were weak with TD Bank down 60 cents to $79.33.There had been some optimism in the marketplace earlier in the morning after data showed that a strong export performance from Germany helped the economy of the 17 countries that use the euro narrowly avoid a recession in the first three months of the year.Eurostat, the EU’s statistics office, reported that the eurozone economy was flat when compared to the previous quarter, confounding expectations for a 0.2 per cent decline, which would have put the eurozone back into recession. In the last quarter of 2011, the eurozone contracted by 0.3 per cent.Germany, Europe’s biggest economy, was the primary driver for the better-than-expected report as a strong export performance helped it grow by 0.5 per cent.Other countries are not faring nearly as well: Ireland, Greece, Spain, Italy, Cyprus, the Netherlands, Portugal and Slovenia are all in recession.European markets were lower with London’s FTSE 100 off 0.62 per cent, Frankfurt’s DAX lost 0.82 per cent and the Paris CAC 40 gave back 0.65 per cent.In corporate news, Facebook is raising the price at which it plans to sell stock to the public. The social networking company said in a regulatory filing Tuesday that it expects to sell its stock for between US$34 and $38 per share. That’s higher than a previous range of $28 to $35. The initial public offering is expected to happen Friday.Shares in The Home Depot Inc. slumped 1.68 per cent to US$49.02 after full-year revenue guidance from the world’s biggest home-improvement company fell short of Wall Street expectations. read more

UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe ‹ › Other important areas to focus on will be the empowerment of women and youth, disaster risk reduction, helping countries in transition and building amore secure world through effective peacekeeping and nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, Mr. Ban said.“While Iceland may seem somewhat alone up here near the top of the planet, the country is outward-looking, fully engaged with the world across a full spectrum of human need,” Mr. Ban said later in his address at the University of Iceland.“Even at a time when Iceland was enduring its own deep economic distress, you strived to uphold your commitments to help the world’s poorest and most vulnerable countries,” he said, referring to the country’s financial crisis which began in 2008.Mr. Ban underlined that dramatic changes in the global landscape, including financial, food and environmental crises, will require world leaders to work together.“This is a moment that cries out for good international solutions, and for effective multilateralism. No nation, on its own, can address today’s serious and multiple threats. Every nation can gain by working with others.”While in Iceland, the Secretary-General will meet with President Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson as well as with other senior officials. He will also visit a geothermal power plant and the Thingvellir National Park, designated a World Heritage site by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon speaks at the University of Iceland. UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe “We have gained significantly from Iceland’s support in critical areas such as international criminal justice, human rights, gender equality and humanitarian assistance,” Mr. Ban told members of the foreign affairs committee of the Icelandic Parliament in Reykjavik, the capital.“As one of the first countries to ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, Iceland has claimed its place at the forefront of the advancement of international justice. And your parliament, of course, is among the world leaders in women’s representation,” Mr. Ban said. Mr. Ban also noted Iceland’s lead role in advancing the international agenda on oceans and the law of the sea, as well as the country’s commitment to international cooperation. He stressed that these contributions will be increasingly important as the world seeks to accelerate progress on the anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and sets a post-2015 development agenda.“The Millennium Development Goals have been the most successful anti-poverty push in history. Now, with less than 1000 days left until the end of 2015, the agreed deadline, I am pressing for accelerated efforts to finish the job,” Mr. Ban said.“2015 is […] the year when Member States must make good on their promise to reach a legally binding agreement on climate change,” he added, stressing that achieving sustainable development is one of his main priorities during his second term.

The Chiefs still have a 79 percent chance of making the playoffs, according to FiveThirtyEight’s NFL predictions, partly because the AFC West doesn’t have another team that’s above .500, and partly because just one of their remaining five opponents has an Elo rating that’s above average: the suddenly hot L.A. Chargers.But Chiefs fans have become all too familiar with Smith’s explosive starts and dismal finishes — Smith led KC to a 9-0 start in 2013, before ending the regular season 2-5 and losing the AFC Wild Card game to the Colts. The team’s fate could rest on whether Andy Reid decides to yank Smith as the starting QB in favor of rookie Patrick Mahomes II, who the team selected with the 10th pick in the 2017 draft. In his junior year at Texas Tech, Mahomes led all FBS schools in passing yards and tacked on a 4.1 touchdown-to-interception ratio. While the first-year gunslinger would be thrust into a high-pressure environment if he takes over for Smith, Mahomes might be the spark that the Chiefs so desperately need.FiveThirtyEight vs. the readersWeek 12 in our NFL predictions game — in which we invite you to outsmart our Elo algorithm — saw the readers beat Elo by an overall 5.5 points, just their second victorious week of the year. Their biggest individual victory came in the Chargers’ 28-6 drubbing of the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day — readers picked up 12.4 points on that game. L.A. sits at 5-6 after two straight wins, and our model now gives the team its highest chance to date of making the playoffs — though, granted, that chance is just 26 percent. The readers had more confidence in the surging Vikings than our Elo system did, and readers were rewarded with 6.6 points after Minnesota took care of Detroit 30-23.The biggest loss for the readers came when they put too much faith in Jacksonville (we’ve warned you before); the Jaguars fell to the Cardinals 24-27, which resulted in a 12.9 point loss for the readers. And they didn’t put enough faith in the Bengals, as Cincinnati thwarted Cleveland 30-16, yielding a 4.3 point loss for the readers.Make sure you get your Week 13 predictions in early, and thanks for playing.

While the team’s defense has actually improved as the season has progressed — the team allowed 22.2 points per game during the 5-0 start compared with 20.8 since — the Chiefs’ offense has been woeful. Former MVP favorite Smith has received the brunt of the criticism, and rightly so: During the 5-0 start, Smith had the best passer rating in the league, but he had just the the 17th-best rating in his next six games. As for Hunt, the running back who was the favorite for offensive Rookie of the Year just a few weeks ago, his yards per carry plummeted from 6.3 in his first five games to 3.2 in his next six. As a group, the Chiefs have made another piece of forgettable history: The team’s decline on offense since Week 5 is tied for fifth-worst in the NFL since 2001. 2011Green Bay17241772+48✓ 5Kansas City201752.833.3-19.5 3Denver201357.436.1-21.3 CAR57CAR67CAR 35, NYJ 27+5.4– 4Denver200850.930.2-20.7 2007Indianapolis17111736+25✓ TEN52TEN61TEN 20, IND 16+5.7– 5N.Y.

Through Week 5 of this NFL season, there was no team better than Kansas City. The Chiefs were 5-0 with a league-best offense in almost every major category, and they’d chalked up statement wins over New England and Philadelphia, who are now the best teams in their respective conferences. Alex Smith was the best quarterback in the game and on course for one of the greatest QB seasons in NFL history. Rookie Kareem Hunt was breaking the league as the best running back in the game, averaging more than 120 rushing yards per game and more than six yards per carry. And as we detailed, the last time the Chiefs were that good, they won Super Bowl IV. Life in the Midwest was bliss.Few could have predicted what has happened since, though. The Chiefs’ decline began in Week 6 with a 19-13 defeat at home against the Steelers; it took a further nosedive two weeks ago when they lost to the lowly New York Giants; and it reached a nadir in their Week 12 loss to Buffalo, the latest setback in what has become one of the most mystifying breakdowns in recent memory. The Chiefs have recorded just a single win (over the Broncos) in their past six games and now sport a 6-5 record, and they have undergone the league’s third-biggest drop in Elo ratings in that time — only the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers and quarterback-less Broncos have dropped further. Fans in KC will be wondering how far their team’s performance might fall, and for good reason: This kind of collapse is essentially unprecedented. Among teams that had an Elo rating of at least 17001Elo ratings measure the quality of teams. An Elo rating of roughly 1500 is considered average. after Week 5 of the season, Kansas City’s decline is the largest through Week 12 in NFL history.

Kupol achieves firsts in ICMI environmental certification

first_imgKinross Gold’s Kupol mine in the Far East Region of the Russian Federation has been fully certified under the International Cyanide Management Code. Kupol is the first mine in Russia to obtain this certification, which was received based on a thorough independent third-party audit of the mine operations. In November 2009, Kupol’s transportation group was also certified as fully compliant with the Code, making it the first mine-operated transportation group in the world to be certified. That certification covers the storage and transportation of cyanide from Port of Pevek facilities to Kupol via a 430-km ice road. The ice road is built annually to transport supplies to the Kupol site.The Cyanide Management Code is a voluntary code that focuses on the safe manufacture, transportation, storage, use and decommissioning of cyanide and associated facilities used for the production of gold. It was developed by a multi-stakeholder group under the guidance of the United Nations Environment Program, with the goal of responsible management of cyanide used in gold mining to enhance the protection of human health and the environment. Consistent with Kinross’ commitment to world-class environmental stewardship and corporate responsibility, it was one of the original signatory companies of the Code.“Kupol’s full certification is a testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment of our team at the mine,” said James Crossland, Kinross Gold Executive Vice-President External Relations and Corporate Responsibility. “We are fully committed to the goals of the Cyanide Management Code, and safe, environmentally responsible operating standards for all our Kinross operations.”Certification for Kinross’ La Coipa mine in Chile will commence in 2010. All other Kinross operations – including Maricunga in Chile; Paracatu and Crixás in Brazil; and Round Mountain, Fort Knox and Kettle River-Buckhorn in the US – are now certified under the Cyanide Management Code.last_img read more

One firefighter has been injured while tackling the blaze. French president Emmanuel Macron, who was at the scene this evening, said the iconic gothic structure will be rebuilt and that the “worst has been avoided”.Images from the scene began to emerge shortly after 7pm local time showing smoke and flames billowing from the top of the building.French media earlier reported that part of the roof towards the back of the building had collapsed, with video footage also showing the spire collapsing in.400 firefighters were battling the blaze in Paris this evening. Deputy Interior Minister Laurent Nunez has said at the scene earlier that saving the gothic monument was “not certain”.Police cordoned off streets surrounding the cathedral while emergency services tackled the blaze.  Before the fire broke out, scaffolding could be seen around parts of the building as it was undergoing renovations.The peak of the church had been undergoing a €6 million renovation project. UN cultural agency UNESCO said it is “at France’s side to save and restore” the famous cathedral.  Source: Patrick Galey/TwitterThe cause of the fire is unknown, although French media quoted the Paris fire brigade saying the fire is “potentially linked” to the renovation work.Work started on Notre Dame – translated literally as ‘Our Lady of Paris’ – in 1163 with the original structure finally completed nearly 200 years later in 1345. The cathedral has become famous through artistic works like Victor Hugo’s novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame and is known for its iconic stained glass ‘rose’ windows made between 1225 and 1250. Spokesman for the cathedral, Andre Finot, has said that the wooden structure supporting the roof was gutted by the blaze. “Everything is burning,” he said earlier this evening.  Notre-Dame de #Paris I Incendie en cours.

Capcom Promises to Fix ChunLis Face in Marvel vs Capcom Infinite

first_imgStay on target For unknown reasons, Chun-Li and a number of other characters look very different in the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Since these are some of gaming’s most beloved characters, their new looks haven’t gone over well with a large segment of fans. As is the thing nowadays, folks took to social media to point out just how different the characters look now.This is a tweet from Ryan “FChamp” Ramirez, who is a professional fighting game player. As you can see from the pictures he posted, Chun-Li doesn’t even look like the same person. While I personally don’t think she looks as horrible as some say, it’s clear that Capcom drastically changed her appearance.2016 Chunli vs 2017 Chunli pic.twitter.com/FWiXvD9YK4— FChamp Ryan Ramirez (@fchampryan) June 13, 2017Chun-Li isn’t the only character who looks off.

In a statement to EuroGamer, Capcom says: “The development team is hard at work finishing the game for the September 19 release date, and based on the feedback we heard, we are currently making improvements to Chun-Li as well as other Capcom characters. Since the work is still in progress, we don’t have anything final to show you just yet, but stay tuned.”Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has been getting a lot of flack since it was revealed. From changed characters looks to the omission of the X-Men, fans do not seem happy about where this game is headed. Will making characters’ faces more palatable help things? Maybe. Hopefully, folks will like the actual game itself and perhaps forgive some of its alleged shortcomings.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. ‘Project Resistance’ Trailer Shows New Multiplayer ‘Resident Evil’11 Things We’re Looking Forward to at PAX West last_img read more

Microsoft and NASA partner to create space lesson plans

first_img Post a comment Originally published June 21, 11:21 a.m. ESTUpdate, 4:34 p.m.: Adds comment from Karon Weber, Partner Director at the Microsoft Education Workshop;Update June 24: Adds photos from Microsoft Tags 4:19 0 Now playing: Watch this: Microsoft and NASA hope to inspire the “first generation of commercial space travelers.” Microsoft Microsoft’s education arm and NASA have joined forces to get students excited about space. The jointly created lesson plans, available online and geared toward middle school and high school students, use academic concepts and hands-on learning to inspire interest in the area. The eight online lesson plans range from titles such as Designing Astro Socks to protect astronauts’ feet in microgravity to designing your own space station. The curriculum includes 3D design challenges, virtual reality experiences and data analysis lessons. Most of the courses require three or four 50-minute time commitments and can cost $2 to $3 per student. The partnership between the companies was a result of a meeting at the International Society for Technology Educators Conference last year, according to Karon Weber, Partner Director at the Microsoft Education Workshop. Weber added that the lesson plans are part of a larger collection by Microsoft to complement existing classroom standards. “We want to complement what [teachers] are already teaching,” said Weber. “We are seeing the opportunity…to model future jobs has been super effective.”astro-socksThrough one of the lessons students design and test sensor socks meant to pressure on an astronaut’s feet in space.  Microsoft In Analyzing the astronauts’ photos of Earth to predict climate change, students will learn the hexadecimal numbering system to find out how computers represent color. The course also creates exposure to machine learning and artificial intelligence modules by asking students to detect seasons from biome images. Students need Windows 10 and a Microsoft Office subscription to finish the class. Another lesson, Experiencing microgravity by understanding Newton’s 2nd and 3rd laws of motion, weighs objects on Earth, helping students learn the difference between mass and weight.Last year, Microsoft teamed with the BBC, the British Broadcasting Corporation, to bring similar lesson plans. “…I think this collection is so interesting because now we are celebrating the 50th history of the moon walk…and now that there’s this commercial space program, that possibility [of living in space] isn’t so far fetched,” adds Weber. NASA didn’t immediately respond to a request for further comment on the lesson plans.  Everything we know about NASA’s Space Launch System Share your voice Sci-Tech NASA Space Microsoftlast_img read more

Change on the horizon for Alaska ferry system

first_imgThe ferry Taku sails into the Wrangell Narrows on its way south in 2013. (Ed Schoenfeld/CoastAlaska News)Change was the theme of the Alaska Marine Highway System presentation during Day 1 of Southeast Conference’s annual fall meeting in Prince Rupert, British Columbia.Mike Neussl is the ferry system’s deputy commissioner, and he says change has been rather suddenly forced upon the system.“As long at the Legislature was willing to write those checks for $100-plus million a year to the Marine Highway System, that was all well and good and nobody complained much. Three years ago, when I said we need to raise rates and fix our tariff structure, because it’s got a bunch of anomalies in it, I kind of got that ‘Well, let’s not upset the apple cart.’ Now, I get questioned, how come I haven’t raised rates faster? It’s been kind of a total turnaround. And it’s all driven by the budget situation for the state.”The state is facing a huge budget deficit because of low oil prices, leading to low oil tax revenue. Every state agency had to cut spending this last budget cycle, and will have to again this coming fiscal year.The Alaska Marine Highway System is an expensive state service. Over the past 30 years, Neussl says, revenue from ferry fares hasn’t changed much, but costs have gone up, especially after the system added ships to the fleet.“We had a ship of nine ships, or eight ships. Now we have a fleet of 11 ships. More ships, more fuel, more crew. On the good side, more convenient schedules, more frequent service, more ability to use the marine highway system because we had more available, but on a down side, that all came with a cost. A pretty significant cost.”Neussl says the ferry system made some on-board service cuts, such as removing bars and gift shops, laying off some employees, etc., but it also reduced port calls.Some people in the audience weren’t happy about those reduced port calls, especially when smaller communities such as Kake will be without any service for about a month, when its ferry is due for maintenance.Others liked some ideas suggested by another speaker, Dave Kensinger, who uses the ferry system to deliver goods throughout Southeast.He agrees the Alaska Marine Highway System needs to change, but he had some more significant changes in mind.Kensinger says the first thing that needs to change is the Marine Transportation Advisory Board. He says it needs to lose the “advisory” part of its name and become a board that can make decisions. Kensinger says that was the original plan for the board when it was formed by the Legislature.“It passed both chambers, it was amazing. The Senate agreed, the House agreed. Both sides of the aisle. But then Gov. (Sarah) Palin, hadn’t really read the legislation, she was going to veto it because it was going to diminish the power of the governor. So, we made it an advisory board. I kind of sat back for 10 years to see how this was working and I hate to say it but it hasn’t worked.”The next thing Kensinger recommends is getting rid of almost all the mainliners, and seriously considering canceling the run to Bellingham, Washington.He says the priority should be providing transportation to people on islands with no road access. Kensinger says smaller ferries with consistent schedules can better serve all of Southeast, and it will be less expensive than the current system.He pointed to the Inter-Island Ferry Authority, which serves Ketchikan and Prince of Wales Island, as an example of how such a service can succeed.“By any standard of public transportation, the IFA is wildly successful. By providing consistent, daily, year-in-year-out service, the numbers that they carry and the cost that it costs them to carry those numbers, when you compare them to the Marine Highway System, are amazing. That’s what you need.”When asked for input, audience members supported the idea of smaller ferries providing consistent schedules. They also suggested ways to cut costs – such as removing food service – as well as ways to make the system more user friendly – such as providing wifi.The three-day Southeast Conference started Tuesday morning in Prince Rupert, British Columbia. On the schedule for Wednesday are presentations about the general regional economic outlook, and economic opportunities in the maritime industry and mining.Southeast Conference is the official regional economic development organization for Southeast Alaska. It formed in 1958 to facilitate the creation of a marine transportation system in Alaska’s Panhandle. Southeast Conference now has about 180 members, including the City of Prince Rupert.last_img read more

No interim relief to Chidambaram in INX Media case

first_imgNew Delhi: In a setback to former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram, his petition challenging the Delhi High Court rejection of anticipatory bail has not been listed before a Supreme Court bench. A battery of lawyers for Chidambaram headed by senior advocate Kapil Sibal has been trying since morning to schedule the matter for hearing before an appropriate bench. Also Read – BJP launches anti-AAP campaign to save Delhi Advertise With Us Sibal appeared before a bench headed by Justice N.V. Ramana and said: “We had no choice. That is why we have come to this court here again.” Justice Ramana said some defect has been noticed in the petition. Sibal said they had cured the defect and urged the court to permit him to orally mention before the court and pleaded for listing of the matter as early as possible. Also Read – In his first after abrogation of Art 370, Army chief to visit Srinagar today Advertise With Us “My client is not running away and Lookout Notice has been issued against him. He is ready to give an undertaking that he is not going anywhere,” Sibal said. Justice Ramana called the Registrar who informed the court that defects had been cured and after verification the petition would be listed. As Sibal insisted that the petition be heard, Justice Ramana refused saying that without listing the matter he could not hear it. Advertise With Us In the morning, a Supreme Court bench headed by Justice Ramana refused to grant interim relief from arrest to Chidambaram and referred his plea for anticipatory bail in the INX media case to Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi for urgent hearing. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the court that this was a case of “monumental money laundering”. At this, Sibal contested that at 2 a.m. a notice was pasted on the former Union Minister’s residence. Sibal said that on Tuesday they did approach the Chief Justice but could not get an urgent hearing. He said the documents related to the case were ready for urgent hearing. Chidambaram has challenged the Delhi High Court order which rejected his anticipatory bail plea on Tuesday. On January 25, the Delhi High Court reserved order on Chidambaram’s bail plea in the case being probed by the Enforcement Directorate and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The agencies had opposed Chidambaram’s bail plea, saying his custodial interrogation was necessary as he was evasive and had given false information during questioning. The ED and the CBI are probing how his son Karti Chidambaram got clearance from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) in 2007 when his father was the Finance Minister. Karti Chidambaram was arrested on February 28, 2018 by the CBI for allegedly accepting money to facilitate the FIPB clearance to INX Media. He was later granted bail. His chartered accountant S. Bhaskararaman was also arrested and released on bail.last_img read more

ACC working to implement govt agenda Fakhrul

first_imgPhotoBangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday alleged that the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) works to implement the government’s agenda, reports UNB.”We think the ACC chairman’s remarks are the government’s versions. The ACC is working to implement the political agenda of the government,” Fakhrul said at a press conference at the BNP Naya Paltan central office.He said BNP thinks that the ACC chairman’s remarks are tantamount to an influence over the trial proceedings of cases especially those ones filed against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia.On Thursday, ACC chairman Iqbal Mahmood alleged the lawyers of Khaleda Zia are obstructing the trial proceedings.Pointing at Zia Charitable Trust and Zia Orphanage graft cases filed against the BNP chief, the ACC chairman said, “Our lawyer and director general told me the defense counsels seek unnecessary extension in some cases. The situation reached so bad that it is difficult for them to conduct the case.”Criticizing the ACC chairman, Fakhrul said though the ACC is supposed to be a neutral and independent body, its chairman’s recent remark is not only unfortunate, but also made them and the whole nation frustrated.”We’re worried over getting justice in cases filed by ACC against Khaleda Zia as the role of the ACC has merged with that of the government,” the BNP secretary general said.He said all lawyers of the ACC are supporters of Awami League, which proves that ACC is playing biased role and engaged in implementing the agenda of AL government.The ACC is moving ahead to implement AL government’s agenda to annihilate BNP and convict Khaleda in baseless cases, he said.BNP standing committee member barrister Jamiruddin Sircar, its vice chairmen Joynal Abed and Ahmed Azam Khan, Chairperson’s adviser Abdus Salam, senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi, joint secretary general Mahbub Uddin Khokon, Khaleda’s lawyers Sanaullah Miah and Masud Ahmed were present.last_img read more

Bomb strikes tourist bus in Egypt kills 4

first_imgSecurity forces stand near a tourist bus after a roadside bomb in an area near the Giza Pyramids in Cairo, Egypt. Photo: APA roadside bomb hit a tourist bus on Friday near the Giza Pyramids, killing three Vietnamese and their Egyptian guide, officials said.The bus was travelling in the Marioutiyah area near the pyramids when the crude roadside bomb, concealed by a wall, went off, Egypt’s chief prosecutor Nabil Sadeq said in a statement. The blast wounded 11 other Vietnamese tourists as well as the Egyptian driver.The bus was carrying a total of 15 Vietnamese tourists, according to Vietnam’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It said that 10 were seriously injured.Vietnamese Ambassador to Egypt Tran Thanh Cong visited the scene of the attack and Al Haram Hospital, where the victims were being treated, the ministry said.Egypt has battled Islamic militants for years in the Sinai Peninsula in an insurgency that has occasionally spilled over to the mainland, hitting minority Christians or tourists. However, this is the first attack to target foreign tourists in almost two years.The attack takes place as Egypt’s vital tourism industry is showing signs of recovery after years in the doldrums because of the political turmoil and violence that followed a 2011 uprising that toppled former leader Hosni Mubarak.It will likely prompt authorities to further tighten security around churches and associated facilities ahead of the New year’s Eve celebrations and next month’s Christmas celebrations of the Coptic Orthodox Church, the dominant denomination among Egypt’s estimated 10 million Christians.Over the past two years, militant attacks against Christians in Egypt — usually targeting churches or buses carrying pilgrims to remote desert monasteries — have killed over a hundred people.last_img read more

Preacher Gets the Whole Screwed Up Gang Back Together

first_img You know Preacher is approaching the end of the season because all the stories are starting to run right into each other. That means the show is finally getting back to that wild chaos that only it can do so well. Remember how we caught up with Arseface last week? This week, it’s Hitler’s turn. He’s been working as a sandwich artist (a hilarious history joke in itself) at an off-brand version of Subway. Huh, guess the real deal would be uncomfortable being portrayed as a company that would hire Adolf… sorry, David Hitler. It’s not all footlongs for the Fuhrer, though. He’s getting back to his old genocidal dictator business, starting with a small following of other strip mall employees. Not that he gets all that far. Just like with Eugene, The Saint of Killers shows up right away to drag him back to hell. No matter how much he refuses.But then it’s back to Angelville. This week, we pick up with Madame Boyd being laid to rest in the swamp. The sudden somber moment is a jarring shift from the comedy violence (involving a bloody soda fridge door) we just saw. Promisingly, the show doesn’t spend a ton of time on Jesse moping around. It’s time to run these plots into each other already. The Grail shows up at Angelville because Starr needs Jesse to overthrow Humperdoo, and Jesse needs The Grail to help pay down his debt. He’s not exactly thrilled to be working with them again, but what are you going to do? Also, this show loves humiliating Starr and I love it. While Starr is condescendingly listing what The Grail can offer Madame L’Angelle, she takes out her catheter tube and pisses on his shoes. No matter what Starr does, the show will never let him be cool and it’s perfect.Malcolm Barrett as Hoover (Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)Complicating matters is Hoover, who’s still going after Cassidy. How he plans to do that is a fun surprise. It turns out there’s a church in New Orleans where a password in confession gets you access to a secret underground gym. Down there, Hoover finds a whole bunch of buff priests itching to go vampire hunting. The costume design is spectacular too. The gym is filled with the holiest eye-candy, like they put out a casting call for God’s own male strippers.What’s especially fun in this episode are the teases that precede each commercial break. The show makes some pretty big promises here, and they’re ones you actually believe the show can keep. In addition to the buff holy vampire hunters, Jesse sends Tulip off on what’s sure to be a fun adventure to watch. Initially, Starr asks Featherstone to go to Osaka, Japan to rob a soul warehouse. Jesse doesn’t trust that Featherstone can get the job done and asks Tulip to go instead. And this whole scene was introduced by the two women throwing down on the kitchen floor. The two of them stuck on an international heist sounds like some pretty great television. Like The Odd Couple, only with more sucker punching.Julie Ann Emery as Featherstone, Ruth Negga as Tulip O’Hare (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)It doesn’t get there quite as quick as I’d like. We have a whole scene of stalling while Jesse assures Tulip that she can do this, and that they have to work with The Grail if they want to escape Angelville. It was a low point of a thoroughly enjoyable episode, and it didn’t even tell us anything new. What made up for it was just how done Jesse and Tulip are with The Grail. When the organization was introduced last season, Jesse spent about half of it going along with Starr. Now, he’s forced to once again, but he no longer has any illusions about whether he can trust The Grail or not. He knows he can’t, and moreover, he knows all their ceremonies are really stupid. Jesse and Tulip making snide comments and rolling their eyes while Starr and Featherstone put together a complicated cover story makes for some good comedy. Same with Jesse laughing at Tulip when she has to wear a Grail uniform.We don’t get too far into their mission. There’s some light bickering on a plane over an inflight magazine, and Tulip generally experiencing the worst flight of her life. Still, it ends with some nice uneasy tension and some light horror. There are only three episodes left, it’s about time the stories started to ramp up. In the midst of all the comedy surrounding The Grail’s disgust with the L’Angelle family, Jesse’s grandma threatens to rip him apart if he doesn’t come back. The sudden shift in tone is effectively jarring, and casts an uneasy shadow over the rest of the episode. This was all mostly setup for next week’s heist, as well as Jesse and Starr’s assault on the Allfather. The episode ends with a couple of great cliffhangers. Starr seemingly hands Jesse over at gunpoint to the Allfather, and T.C. lets slip to Madame L’Angelle that Jesse’s trying to get the Genesis back. Yeah, she knows exactly what that is, and she definitely doesn’t want her grandson to have it. Then, the show makes us wait a week to find out where that leads. So yes, this was ultimately a setup episode. But it was a very good, enjoyable setup episode. That’s something Preacher hasn’t often been able to do.Pip Torrens as Herr Starr, Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Betty Buckley as Gran’Ma (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)Then there was Cassidy’s story, which finally did the thing we were more or less expecting it to do since this arc began. That Vampire society he was inducted into? The one that seemed too good to be true? Turns out it was. This episode really starts laying the creep factor on thick, which I would have appreciated earlier. I get that the last episode was about the seductive promise of the group for Cassidy. He’s shown a place where he’ll be safe and accepted. Where he can learn to do fun vampire stuff like fly, mesmerize and turn into an animal. But the creepy stuff starts abruptly here. That’s not a knock against this episode. It’s the first one to really nail the mix of seduction and suspect. It’s odd that little hints of what’s really going on wouldn’t have popped up sooner.That’s a serious nitpick, though because the episode handles it so well. Everyone starts talking about a new vampire’s day to fly. Not the kind of flying that Eccarius does. Cassidy is told, after he refuses to turn a willing young woman into a vampire, that the day after they’re turned, new vampires get on a plane and go on a mission. They create new societies and safe havens for vampires, and work toward a more accepting world. Yeah, everyone’s bullshit detector is going off at this point. Especially with the vague cult-like terms they use to describe it. Preacher gives us every reason to be suspicious, while also showing us why Cassidy buys into it so completely. For a vampire whose hated his own existence for years, who just had to kill his son after he became too evil, the idea of a world where he’d be safe is alluring. So too is the creation of a cabal of “good” vampires. Not to mention the flight and seduction powers. The show so effectively communicates how seductive Eccarius and his ideas are, that you dread the inevitable moment where it all turns out to be a facade. There is no airplane, and there are no missions. Eccarius takes new vampires out, drains their blood and chucks their bodies into the sunlight to be burned to dust. Cass won’t find out just yet, though. Eccarius has fully seduced him in every way at this point.We ship them! #Preacher pic.twitter.com/sh9ncurfpM— PREACHER (@PreacherAMC) August 6, 2018For a setup episode, this spent pretty much its entire runtime in exactly the place we want Preacher to be. It’s that right balance of over-the-top violence, dark comedy and outright horror. The show doesn’t always strike it right but when it does, it’s a mix no other series can quite match. This was pretty much everything we could hope for from an episode like this. If you’re going to spend an hour setting all the dominoes up to fall, you want to make it fun to watch. It can’t all be anticipation-building. That’s something a lot of shows struggle with, especially Preacher at times. It helps that the dominoes this episode placed are all pretty huge. And with only three episodes left, they have to start falling fast. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Microsoft Finally Stops Selling Windows 7 and Windows 81

first_img Even though there’s plenty to like about Windows 10, some folks would still rather buy a Windows 7 computer. Unfortunately for those people, it’s about to get a lot harder to do that.Why? Because Microsoft has finally stopped selling Windows 7 (and Windows 8.1) licenses to computer manufacturers. This isn’t something that companies like Dell and HP didn’t see coming. Microsoft had set the date ages ago, and we’re past it now.The good news for any of you out there who are still trying to avoid Windows 10 and need to replace an or upgrade a machine is that this doesn’t mean all the remaining Windows 7 licenses are going to suddenly disappear. Plenty of retailers will have inventory on hand for quite some time.Some will still have brand new desktops and laptops available that ship with Windows 7. You may have to go looking for a system built for business environments, though, as most of the systems built for consumers have been shipping with Windows 10 since the second half of 2015.There is a downside to doing that. Systems built for the corporate world tend not to give you great bang for your buck, but if you’re dead set on avoiding Windows 10… well, there’s a good chance you’ll overpay for hardware at this point.On a good note, you won’t be at risk of running a computer that’s vulnerable to attack from the first day you fire it up. Extended support for Windows 7 doesn’t get cut off until January 2020, so you’ll receive critical updates for a little over three more years.

The extensive redesign transformed the hotel’s 267 guest rooms and suites, Executive Lounge, two floors of event space and its signature restaurant, reinventing the experience of the legendary hotel. Offering travellers a warm welcome in one of the city’s most exciting locations, Brisbane Marriott Hotel’s updated look and feel is ideal for visitors who are accustomed to modern design, state-of-the-art facilities and warm, intuitive service.The hotel’s revitalisation together with the rebirth of the neighbouring Riverside Precinct, inclusive of Petrie’s Bight and Howard Smith Wharves, has established Brisbane Marriott as the city’s destination to stay in premium comfort with Brisbane’s newest entertainment precinct at its doorstep. Keeping up with its iconic reputation, the modernised rooms at Brisbane Marriott Hotel are complete with breathtaking views of either the Brisbane River, taking in the Story Bridge and Kangaroo Point Cliffs, or the River City skyline.“Brisbane Marriott Hotel is one of Marriott International’s most iconic properties in Australia. Perfectly positioned in the River City’s vibrant and creative CBD, Brisbane Marriott Hotel’s refreshed, modern look combined with the team’s intuitive hospitality make for a truly exceptional stay that showcases the brand’s hosting culture and commitment to elevating the guest experience,” said Sean Hunt, Area Vice President, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, Marriott International. “We are delighted to be working with our key partner, YTL Hotels, to shine a spotlight on the renewed Brisbane Marriott Hotel and Marriott brand here in Australia.”The hotel employed the expertise of Malaysian-based company Duoz Design to ensure the hotel embodied its Brisbane heritage in a modernised design. Careful consideration was given to the hotel’s unique natural and historic surroundings and these details were effortlessly incorporated into the new design to create a multi-dimensional sensory experience for guests.“From the ambient lighting used throughout the hotel, reminiscent of a balmy Brisbane evening, to the colour palette in the hotel rooms, every element was inspired by the Brisbane region,” Brisbane Marriott Hotel General Manager, John Douglas said. “We are proud to welcome guests to experience the reintroduction of this special hotel, made even more memorable as the hotel celebrates its 21st birthday.”Striking guestroom interiors are set in neutral tones that recall the surrounding nature, from the bark-toned headboard to the grey walls and deep earthy brown details that were inspired by Brisbane’s parks and forests.

But even now, its shadow looms with Puerto Rico’s government estimating the amount required to rebuild and restore the region at around $139 billion. Even more sobering are the death tolls for the storm that were raised from 62 to 2,975 according to a report commissioned by Puerto Rico’s Gov. Ricardo Rossello and released in August 2018. “The People of Puerto Rico are not nameless, faceless statistics. They are our countrymen, with the same dreams, values, and aspirations. Our solemn duty as an industry and as a society is to help restore and revitalize an island that so many call home,” said Ed Delgado, President, and CEO of the Five Star Institute during his address at the conference.Some of the key topics discussed during this two-day summit included an overall “State of the Island,” a look at the policies and programs shaping the island’s recovery, an examination of Puerto Rico’s ongoing foreclosure crisis, borrower outreach options, a legal services update, and a breakdown of the unique property preservation challenges presented by Hurricane Maria’s aftermath. “Mainland firms are not familiar with Puerto Rico, and parties based in Puerto Rico need to work with mainland partners they can trust,” Steven Horne, Founding Member of HMB Law Group told DS News in its November feature story titled “Rebuilding Paradise”. “The beauty of the Five Star PR18 Conference is that it is the perfect time in the recovery process to build those relationships.” Supported by Auction.com and Co-supported by The Home Depot Renovation Services and RES.NET, PR18 featured representatives from industry-leading organizations. They included Banco Popular de Puerto Rico; Clear Capital; DIMONT; Fannie Mae; Five Brothers Asset Management Solutions; Freddie Mac; Gilbert Garcia Group; Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery; Hladik, Onorato & Federman;  HMB Law Group; HOPE NOW; JGM Property Group;  National General Lender Services; NAHREP, USRES; Wells Fargo Home Mortgage; and Xome.At the crux of the conference were two key focus areas—proactive response and collaboration.“When crises happen, we must all react quickly and collaboratively to effect change,” said Ali Haralson, Chief Business Development Officer, Auction.com. “This proactive response is in line with the message of PR18: hope and restoration. By convening in Puerto Rico for this important summit, our industry leaders will be bringing visibility to the needs of the island and supporting relief and recovery efforts collectively.” The road to recovery for this paradise is a long one indeed but it is one that the industry is taking action to walk on to restore the island.Click here to read our November issue of DS News to learn more about how industry leaders are working to facilitate the process of rebuilding Puerto Rico.center_img The Long Road to Puerto Rico’s Recovery in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Media, News, Servicinglast_img read more

and improving suburban transport "Hardly 600 people will use bullet train (on one way journey) when it is completed and government has borrowed huge amount of money from Japan for this Instead the

more by "frustration" File image of BSP supremo Mayawati PTI He said the Dalit leader was given twice the allotted time to raise her issue in the House and it was "unfortunate" that she did not give due respect to the Chair She did not follow the parliamentary decorum while raising issues Yadav a Rajya Sabha member said It was surprising that she chose to resign he said "So the question is why did she do so She has lost people’s mandate She is likely to be in frustration Her tenure is anyway going to end in the next session "Some people are resorting to emotional pitch in politics by doing drama so as to create confusion People will not be misled" he said The Modi government Yadav said had been working overtime to empower Dalits backwards and the poor The saffron party had been successful in weaning away a section of the core vote bank of the BSP in the Lok Sabha and the recent Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh sweeping both the elections and reducing Mayawati’s party to a marginal status Mayawati has been strategising to reclaim her lost clout and had joined hands with opposition parties to take on the BJP The Dalit leader on Tuesday tendered her resignation hours

she’s much more than what’s there between two covers…” Even before the first page is turned Tripathi a popular transgender rights activist actor-dancer and television celebrity wants to ensure that every part of the book is an extension of her personality: tantalising colourful and direct At the launch of the English translation of her autobiography at the recently-concluded New Delhi World Book Fair Tripathi 35 towers over everybody in her silk saree her lips filled in with a shade in deep red her eyes taking in the crowd of mostly eager curious men gathered at the Oxford University Press stall to watch her “How did you find my autobiography” Tripathi asks me brusquely “The first few chapters are difficult to read” I say and she nods “Well that’s life isn’t it When we look back on our childhood we want to remember the good bits I can’t do that I was sexually abused when I was seven because I was so feminine” she says “But my life isn’t a tragedy I was born into an upper-caste Brahmin home I was treated like a son I went to college I’ve had many jobs I’m not going to sit and cry about what happened like some Meena Kumari I’m like Cleopatra — crown yourself honey don’t wait for the world to do it for you” Tripathi says breaking into peals of laughter Me Hijra Me Laxmi is a riotous account of Tripathi’s life It charts her journey from a young boy confused about his sexuality to his decision to become a hijra and the activism that has formed the basis of her work and socio-political identity After an abusive childhood and adolescence a mercurial Tripathi decided to put her foot down against any kind of injustice — whether it is harassment by the police lecherous men or older hijras who preached against safe sex She is brutally honest in chronicling the days spent chasing men fame and money and the price she had to pay She becomes a jetsetting advocate for hijras abroad speaking at conferences that get her “thunderous claps” working tirelessly and bypassing all temptations All through to the very end of her memoir Tripathi is undaunted by fate unapologetic about her choices and simply fabulous by nature The idea of an autobiography came in 2009 when a Mumbai journalist Vaishali Rode met Tripathi for an interview and later proposed to help her write the book “She lived with me for nearly two-and-a-half years we talked every day she got to know the ‘real’ Laxmi” says Tripathi The Marathi version was published in 2012 and has now gone into its fifth reprint Translated from the Marathi original by academicians R Raj Rao and PG Joshi the book comes on the heels of another autobiography by a hijra: The Truth About Me: A Hijra Life Story V Geetha’s English translation of A Revathi’s memoir in Tamil published in 2013 The parallels between Revathi and Laxmi’s lives are many: both were born male and experienced gender dysphoria early on there was rarely an escape from sexual abuse in their formative years and both underwent a long journey to come into their own But that is where the similarities end Tripathi doesn’t care to embrace a singular identity; instead she waxes eloquent about a “hijra soul” “I’ve been a boy a homosexual a drag queen and now a hijra Put me in any container and I will take its shape” she says dramatically Tripathi’s life is evidence of that: she began her career as a dancer-instructor and model-coordinator before a stint in Mumbai’s infamous dance bars In 1998 Tripathi became a hijra She set up Astitva an organisation for the support and development of sexual minorities with her friends Kiran and Atharva Nair in 2006 Two years later Salman Rushdie would write a piece about her calling her a “force of nature” in The Half-Woman God published in the anthology AIDS Sutra: Untold Stories from India For the last decade Tripathi has been campaigning against Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code that criminalises “carnal intercourse against the order of nature” “It’s nobody’s business what I do in the bedroom unless you’re there with me of course People like Baba Ramdev should stop poking their nose in this business Baby when you’re a brahmachari should you be knowing anything about sexuality” Tripathi asks her chelas bemusedly A few men in the crowd titter but shut up when she continues: “The Aam Aadmi Party doesn’t have a single woman in their cabinet As for all those CCTV cameras how long do you think it’ll take for somebody to stick bubblegum on them and go ahead and rape somebody” With the success of her autobiography in Marathi Gujarati and now in English Tripathi feels that there could be a sequel — about the men in her life “If there is one thing that her autobiography lacks it is the details about her romantic and sexual life” writes Rode in the Marathi preface “It will be about the men I fell in love with the ones who exploited me and the ones who were exploited by me in turn” says Tripathi “If a man wants to fall in love with me he will Hain na” she looks coyly at a young man who suddenly loses his voice For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related News Dhruv Darvesh Kumar, Damn.

Therefore, (Source: PTI) Related News Prime?Minister KP Oli’s government in Nepal dragged itself back last week from the Himalayan abyss towards which it was skipping — but its suicidal urges are certain to cause friends of the country no small amount of concern in months to come This time the government was saved after Pushpa Kumar Dahal the leader of Nepal’s Maoists reneged on a deal that would have meant abandoning the alliance with the Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist) and forming a new government with the Nepali Congress’s Sher Bahadur Deuba Persuaded by influential figures both inside Nepal and in India Dahal came to the conclusion that the Maoists’ best interests would be served by continuing with a Left-led Left-dominated alliance government In time the alliance’s friends have promised Oli will be made to keep his promises to hand over power to the Maoists junior partners in the alliance giving Dahal a chance to become prime minister The Congress is entitled to feel hard done by — it had agreed to a deal that would have given it second place in a Dahal-led government even though it has twice as many seats in Parliament — but is likely consoling itself with the thought that the last word hasn’t been written A blame-game has begun putting fresh strain on India-Nepal ties The Nepal government has cancelled the trip of President Bidhya Devi Bhandari to India and recalled its ambassador in Delhi But for Prime Minister Oli’s government the crisis must be an opportunity for introspection: Instead of laying the foundations for the republic that ought be emerging from the country’s new Constitution it has instead allowed its energies to be frittered away on crisis after crisis He has notably failed to build bridges with the peoples of Nepal’s Terai plains where large swathes of opinion are embittered over what they perceive to be political disenfranchisement in favour of mountain communities Though the violent movement that tore apart the country last year has stilled the government has singularly failed to build a genuine consensus on the way forward Perhaps more important the government’s record on rebuilding infrastructure destroyed in last year’s earthquake has been appalling to the dismay of international donors and the country’s people alike There has been growing anger too over everything from controversial ambassadorial appointments to that old feature of government across the region — corruption India’s considerable equities in this situation are clear: a Nepal torn by ethnic conflict or lapsing back into armed violence will have serious consequences across the border too There’s little doubt though that heavy-handed diplomacy will prove counter productive Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s early efforts to push Nepal into an accomodation with the Terai leadership achieved little other than to harden faultlines within the country and embitter large swathes of public opinion against India Prime Minister Oli’s eleventh-hour reprieve almost certainly will be followed by many more trips to the chopping block New Delhi must allow events to take their course even as it

from next year’s Games in South Korea Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko was also banned from any future participation at the Olympic Games The IOC told a news conference that the Schmid report confirmed “the systematic manipulation of the anti-doping rules and system in Russia” Samuel Schmid author of the report told journalists: ”The results are not based only on (Russia’s former
