Whitewater hosts Teck Kootenay Zone Race

first_imgThe Teck Kootenay Zone Race at Nelson’s Whitewater Resort, has come and gone, but the excitement is yet to wind down for all those involved. More than 115 skiers and their families traveled from Lake Louise, Kimberly, Fernie, Rossland and Golden to test their skills in four races spread across two days.Saturday and Sunday both dawned clear and cold, with perfect bluebird skies and firm chalk on Bonanza — a classic Whitewater groomer easily visible from the base lodge. The slalom track started gently on a sunny bench before taking a hairpin left turn into the shadows and plunging straight down to valley bottom. A combination of gates, stubbies, and panels challenged 117 skiers through four races, bringing U12, U14, U16, and Masters level athletes together for a weekend of sportsmanship, competition, and big fun. Behind the scenes, a small army of tireless volunteers worked ten hour shifts to solve problems, support the racers, and keep everyone safe.Saturday night featured a kids’ awards banquet and volunteer appreciation event at The Hume Hotel in downtown Nelson. Sunday afternoon saw athletes take to a snowy podium at the Whitewater base area, where they were wreathed in medals and ribbons by the legendary Bobby Swan — who along with Leigh Brousson competed in the Masters category. Whitewater posted impressive results, with top ten finishes across all categories.The Whitewater Ski Team wishes to thank the many dedicated coaches, volunteers, ski patrol, and Whitewater Ski Resort for the truly unbelievable level of support they continue to show our young athletes.last_img read more

NFL Films’ ‘Hard Knocks’ takes a look at area semipro team

first_imgBY WAYNE WITKOWSKI Correspondent Above: New Jersey Lions head coach Paul Castillo, who played football for Middletown North High School, talks to his players during a practice at its home field at St. John Vianney High School, Holmdel, on Jan. 21. The Lions, a semipro football team out of Old Bridge, are seeking to be featured in NFL Films’ “Hard Knocks.” Below: Snow and freezing temperatures didn’t keep the Lions from practicing in preparation for their Jan. 29 game at SJV against another semipro team, the Irish of the Five Star Football League, in a game to be covered by NFL Films. PHOTOS BY ERIC SUCAR staff The NFL isn’t the only football league still playing outside in subfreezing temperatures. Some 60 players from the New Jersey semipro football team New Jersey Lions, based in Old Bridge, will have their exhibition game against the New Jersey Irish in chilling temperatures covered by NFL Films for a special program on semipro football around the country, to be aired on its “Hard Knocks” program.The Pride Bowl will be played at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 29, at St. John Vianney High School’s all-weather field in Holmdel. It pits the Lions of the Big Northeast Football Federation against the Irish of the Five Star Football League and will be taped for highlights. Lions coach and owner Paul Castillo and some of the Lions players will have microphones recording them during the game to give viewers a feel of what’s going on.Film crews were at St. John Vianney on Jan. 21 recording footage of practice and interviewing players. General admission is $7 for the game, and children under 10 will be admitted free of charge. Some proceeds from the game will benefit the Valerie Center Children’s Cancer Hospital in Long Branch.The date and time for the airing of the NFL Films program have yet to be determined.“Most of these guys played in college, and they still have the dream. They play for the love of the game,” said Castillo. “NFL Films wanted do to something on NFL teams, and looked around and heard about [semipro teams], came to two or three of our practices and liked what they had seen.”His team was 10-2 during the season in its second year in the conference, losing in the second round of the North Division playoffs to the Jersey Wolves, 28-22, in overtime. The Lions’only other loss was to the Central Pennsylvania Piranhas, 26-20. The season runs through the summer into November, but the Lions and Irish agreed to play an exhibition game in the frigid January weather.“Theweather is not that bad. You just dress in layers, although it’s better to play without all of that in the warmer weather,” said quarterback Matt Mariano, a former star at East Brunswick High School who went on to play at Delaware Valley College and is one of the players being mic’d up for this game. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Not many players actually in the NFLhave a chance to be a part of an NFL Films production. Who knows what can happen from here?”Mariano is working his way back into playing shape after he was medically cleared in December after a shoulder separation suffered early in the season.“When I was done with college, I thought I was done with football,” he said. “One guy I played high school football with told me about this team, which is not far.”But games are played along the East Coast, and for any game that’s about two hours away or less, players need to figure out their own way to get there. For a few games of longer distances, they charter a bus. After three seasons, the Lions moved from the Regional American Football League, where they averaged 48 points a game in an unbeaten regular season and gave up 6.3 points per game, second best in the league. Last year they finished 14-1, beating the 2007 RAFL and national champion Prince William (Va.) Monarchs, 30-13. In the second round, the Lions beat the New Jersey Wolves, 15-12, with a 105-yard interception return for the game-winning touchdown before the season ended in a 22-21 loss to the Virginia Kings.This season, they scored 36.6 points and allowed 6.7 per outing, second best in their new league in both areas.Most of the players on this team were college players who could not hang up the cleats for good. Just about all of them have professional careers.“This is not for everybody,” said Lions middle linebacker Jeff Castillo, the coach’s brother and a co-owner of the team. “Some look to semipro football as a joke, but not us. We’re in a class with a few other teams that take this seriously. We’re trying to change the face of semipro football, and my brother and his staff of 16 coaches put in so much time to this. It’s their lives. It’s what they talk about away from the field.”Jeff Castillo, an ironworker for New Jersey Local 45, is a former star middle linebacker for Middletown North’s state championship team in 1996. He said he became a co-owner first and then decided to get back on the field. “I wasn’t ready to stop playing yet,” he said. Strong-side linebacker Paul Keator, one of many Jersey Shore-area players, lives in Toms River after a stellar career at Middletown South as a running back. He was recruited by University of New Haven coach Tony Sparano, now head coach with the Miami Dolphins, and left after a year when Sparano also exited. He spent a brief time at Rowan University in 2003 and then left to start his own paving business.“I feel this is better than college,” Keator said. “The time everyone is putting into it, they feel like it’s real football. It’s getting bigger and younger with more guys fresh out of college who feel this is their chance to maybe get noticed by a team [in the NFL].”And with a potentially large audience who may be watching them on their television sets, this is the chance for many of them to live their dream — at least for one showing.For more information, go to njlionsfootball.com or Facebook.com/newjersey lions.last_img read more

Stuck on 21, Serena aims to finish the job

first_imgThe peak remains tantalisingly close for Serena Williams but negotiating the final incline to a record-equalling 22nd grand slam singles title is proving the trickiest of all.American veteran Williams gets another chance to match Steffi Graf’s professional era benchmark at Wimbledon when the championships start next week, having proved uncharacteristically vulnerable when it matters.Had it not been for defeat by Germany’s Angelique Kerber in the Australian Open final and Garbine Muguruza at the same stage in Paris, 34-year-old Williams would have already passed Graf and would be set to tie Margaret Court’s all-time record of 24.Instead, it has all become a bit of a struggle.Add in her US Open semi-final defeat by Roberta Vinci last year when a calendar slam seemed in her pocket, there are doubts about her finishing skills — and her nerve.“Something is holding her back, and it could be nerves,” 18-times grand slam champion Chris Evert said.“Especially against Kerber and against Muguruza, she wasn’t able to dig herself out of the hole like she has in past years.“She’s been famous for finding that next gear, that next level, when she’s down.”Three-times Wimbledon champion John McEnroe tips Williams to win a seventh All England Club crown, but says self-imposed pressure could be mounting.“It’s not easy to try to do what she’s doing, to make history at this stage,” he said.“There’s not that many people that wouldn’t pick her here. If she’s playing well, she’ll win the tournament.”Of the challengers, they come in two distinct categories.The power hitters such as Spain’s Muguruza, twice champion Petra Kvitova, former world number one and rising American Madison Keys. Sadly Victoria Azarenka withdrew with injury.Then there are the scramblers like world number three Agnieszka Radwanska, Kerber and Simona Halep.World number two Muguruza pushed her hard in last year’s final and overpowered her in the French Open final with a fearless display of attacking tennis.Whether or not the 22-year-old can make the quick switch from clay to grass and deal with the new-found expectation is questionable though, according to Evert.“I’m curious to see how she does that,” the American, who will be commentating for ESPN, said in a phone conference.On her day Kvitova can be unplayable, especially on grass, although the Czech, winner in 2011 and 2014, is still prone to puzzling off-days and she played down her chances after losing to Johanna Konta at Eastbourne.“I’m not personally seeing chances, unfortunately. I will be very happy if I can show up in the second week,” Kvitova, who will be seeded 10th, said.Keys, seeded ninth, reached the quarter-finals last year and warmed up for Wimbledon by winning the Birmingham title on grass. She also won the Eastbourne title in 2014.Evert believes the 21-year-old is now ready to mount a serious Wimbledon challenge.“This girl can play on grass. Her serve I think matches Serena’s,” Evert said. “I think she’s going to win some majors. I don’t have any doubt in my mind.”last_img read more

Sugar made us free

first_imgDear Editor,The cultivation of sugar in Guyana commenced between the 1630 and 1658 under the Dutch rule. The Africans arrived here in the 1700s. Hence, it would have been the Amerindians and later the lower class of Europeans who would have worked on these plantations. After the abolition of slavery in 1834, labour was sought by way of the immigration system, with the arrival of the Portuguese and later from the East Indians who arrived in 1838 who worked under the system of indentureship. The Chinese arrived in 1853 after the suspension of the Indian immigration system.Guyana’s unique ethnic composition is one that we brag about. Hence it is noteworthy that our country’s first official product saw the participation of every ethnic group.All six races played a pivotal role the establishment, cultivation, expansion and sustenance of Guyana’s sugar industry over the centuries. Three hundred and fifty-nine years later, the industry has acquired the track record of positive growth and unparallel contribution to the economy with a decline only on two occasions, the first being in 1980s with a revival after 1992 and again in 2005 after the flood. However, recent events have revealed that the Government is somewhat unaware of these facts or they are vehemently bent on throwing out the baby with the bath water.Social Studies teach us from an early age that sugar is one of the five natural resources of Guyana and then there is the local expression that “sugar is king.”What we have not been taught is that because of the blood, sweat, tears and suffering of our foreparents, sugar by way of its contribution to our economy for 359 years “Have made us free.”Yet today, as we witness and experience the rapid decline of our country’s economy, there are those who are unashamedly refusing to recognise the first official product and the oldest and largest single economic sector in Guyana.The Government talk of “Greening the economy” but it is hell bent on discarding the industry that can be a major contributor to this initiative by way of by products which are used in the production of food, beverages, confectionery, medicines, paper and ethanol gas. The Government complained of having to bail out the sugar industry in a manner that makes it seem as a burden on the economy yet it willing to provide subsidy to other areas.Calypsonian “Red Plastic Bag” in his calypso “Sugar Made Us Free” urged that “we need to stop and consider the consequences that we will suffer later.” The closure of the industry will have a ripple effect on individuals and the economy. Bias and visionless thinking will result in workers being placed on the breadline and the disruption of family and community life.What sins have the workers in this aged old industry committed? Can it be that they are being made to suffer unduly based on the premise that the workforce is made largely of Indo-Guyanese, that they are ardent supporters of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), that they are represented by the Unions GAWU and NAACIE which are air marked as affiliates of the PPP or that they were the first sector that was organised by the late Dr Cheddi Jagan, Founder of the PPP.If this is so, then it is a violation of their rights as is stated under the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Act Convention No 87 and United Nations Declaration on Human Rights Article 19-23 – Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organise.The latest vendetta is the late payment of wages and salaries to sugar workers which was overdue by two weeks without any explanation. This is a violation of ILO’s Convention, 1949 (No 95)The final chapter on the story of sugar in Guyana is about to end on a sad note and the APNU/AFC Administration has designed its tombstone which reads “Here Rests The Sugar Industry of Guyana, 1630’s – 2017. May Its Soul Rest In Peace.”Sincerely,Gillian BurtonPersaud MPlast_img read more

Varela saves Ronaldo’s blushes in thriller

first_imgGoals from Pepe – with a superb header – and Helder Postiga, with his 20th goal for his country, had given the Portuguese a perfect start.However, a series of terrible misses by their star player Cristiano Ronaldo had threatened to prove very costly until Varela stepped up to save them just three minutes after coming on.The win puts Portugal level on points with Denmark, who beat the Dutch in their opening game, while Germany top the table and take on Holland later on Wednesday.The Danes had the first chance in the fifth minute as the ball deflected to highly-rated youngster Christian Eriksen inside the area but Pepe did well to block his goalbound shot.The Portuguese managed to put very little together in the opening 20 minutes save once when Ronaldo drifted in from the wing into the centre and played the ball to Raul Meireles.Meireles found the Real Madrid star – just five goals in 15 tournament matches – in space but he produced a woeful shot and tried to blame the pitch as he looked ruefully down at it afterwards.However, he was not found wanting when he delivered his corner in the 24th minute as Pepe came steaming in to head home, the ball flying in over Danish midfielder William Kvist’s head at the near post.Ronaldo appeared to take heart out of that and he was unfortunate to see an on-target freekick take a deflection off a Danish defender in the 32nd minute.But he did not have to wait long for his side to double their lead.His former Manchester United team-mate Nani was the creator, passing the ball into the box where Postiga got a yard on his marker Simon Kjaer and put the ball away with a sharp finish.The Danes, though, got themselves back in the match four minutes before half-time as a smart header across the goal from Michael Krohn-Dehli found Bendtner unmarked and he made no mistake with a close range header to make it five successive games with the Portuguese that he has found the net.Ronaldo, though, should have restored the two goal advantage soon after the start of the second-half as put clear he was one on one with Danish ‘keeper Stephan Andersen, but the latter blocked his shot with his legs.The Danes still found plenty of fight with Kvist going close with a rasping shot.Bendtner was in lively form and worked himself some space in the 72nd minute to set himself up nicely but he sent his shot well wide of the goal.Ronaldo’s woes in front of goal continued as Nani’s superb through ball found him in acres of space and from about eight yards out and with just Andersen to beat he put it wide – provoking jeers and whistles in the stands.That miss looked to have been extremely costly as Bendtner rose superbly to head home Lars Jacobsen’s excellent cross from the right.However, the drama was not over as Fabio Coentrao hared down the left flank and crossed into the box. Varela swung at the ball with his left foot and miskicked but showing remarkable composure connected with his favoured right foot and lashed home.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LVIV, Ukraine, June 13 – Portugal beat Denmark 3-2 in a thrilling Euro 2012 Group B clash here on Wednesday to keep alive their hopes of reaching the quarter-finals.A stunning goal by substitute Silvestre Varela three minutes from time saw the 2004 finalists take the points after they had let slip a 2-0 lead as Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner drew the Danes level with two headers.last_img read more

Wenger expects response after reality Cech

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal’s Czech goalkeeper Petr Cech warms up before the start of their English Premier League football match against West Ham United at the Emirates Stadium in London on August 9, 2015. PHOTO/AFPLONDON, August 15- Arsene Wenger expects Arsenal to produce a strong response after their dismal opening day defeat when they return to action at Crystal Palace on Sunday.Wenger’s side make the short trip to south London with the embarrassment of last weekend’s shock 2-0 home loss against West Ham still fresh in their minds. Heading into the new Premier League campaign, Wenger’s squad were widely tipped as genuine title contenders after winning the FA Cup and defeating champions Chelsea in the Community Shield.But a miserable debut from Petr Cech, the veteran goalkeeper signed from Chelsea and hailed as the last piece in Wenger’s title jigsaw, and lacklustre displays from the majority of his new team-mates, allowed West Ham to shatter the optimism surrounding the Gunners.Faced with a tricky clash against a Palace side who started with a 3-1 win at Norwich and have caused numerous problems for the top teams at Selhurst Park in recent years, Wenger acknowledges Arsenal could suffer another blow to their title bid unless they raise their performance levels significantly.Yet the Arsenal manager is sure that belief among his squad remains intact and he has backed them to rebound with a win that will set the tone for the rest of the season.“Every defeat makes you a bit smaller, but it is our job to take it in perspective with 37 games to go,” Wenger said.“We have the history behind us from the second half of the campaign last year which shows we have the quality to always respond and to be consistent, so let’s focus on our quality.“Defeat is part of the season and of course that was not planned, but we know it is how we respond to these kind of things that will make our season.”– Fragile –Following Sunday’s loss, Wenger found himself in the familiar position of having to defend his football philosophy as angry fans questioned the way their physically fragile players were bullied by West Ham.But the Frenchman, whose club last won the title in 2004, said: “We have a big following and disappointed people are emotional, that is understandable and it hurts us as well to disappoint people who have a high level of expectation.“We have analysed what happened to us, but we don’t have to go overboard with what happened. It is a defeat and it hurts, but that shouldn’t take our belief in our potential away.“A strong season is down to the way that you respond to disappointment so we will focus on our next game. We will prepare for that.”Wenger is boosted by the return of right-back Hector Bellerin after a thigh strain ruled him out last weekend.Chile forward Alexis Sanchez could start having stepped up his training this week after an extended break following the Copa America.Meanwhile, Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew believes Yohan Cabaye would have slotted straight into Arsenal’s starting line-up if the France midfielder had signed for the Gunners.Cabaye made a surprise move to Palace from Paris Saint Germain in July but was close to joining Arsenal two years ago when he was at Newcastle.The playmaker has already made a good impression at Palace, scoring in last week’s win at Norwich, and Pardew says he could easily hold his own in a squad of Arsenal’s quality.“Two years ago Yohan wouldn’t play (for Newcastle) at Manchester City because he thought he was going to Arsenal so it’s quite ironic he’s now here with us at Crystal Palace,” Pardew said.“He’s a fantastic player, we’re honoured to have him and he’s definitely the level of Arsenal players.“I don’t think Arsene Wenger or anyone at Arsenal would disagree with that.“We have a player who could definitely play in their team and that’s a nice feeling for us.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Nature center getting boost

first_imgLA PUENTE – Two local politicians said they allocated a combined $300,000 to help pay for a nature center in La Puente, completing all the funding needed to move forward with plans for the one-acre park. The city has received written confirmation from Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina and verbal confirmation from Rep. Grace Napolitano, D-Santa Fe Springs, for $150,000 each, city Finance Director Young Kim said. “We’re anxious because we want to get this project started,” Mayor Lou Perez said. “We’ve got some money already but it hasn’t been enough, so we are very happy \ have joined us to help fund this.” The proposed Puente Creek Nature Education Center, estimated at $1.9 million, is planned for Nelson Avenue between Nelson Elementary School and the Puente Creek Channel. Officials have long argued that the area, which is home to several sports leagues, is often crowded. “The whole thing is that we need more places where people here who can’t afford to take their kids to the ocean or to the mountains or wherever else can utilize,” Perez said. The city has retained San Diego-based Schmidt Design Group Inc. to design the project. While the money from Napolitano and Molina has not yet been received, officials are confident at the prospects. Napolitano’s legislative director Joseph Sheehy said Tuesday he was hopeful her end of the bargain would come through. It is earmarked in the Transportation Housing and Urban Development Bill, which has passed the House of Representatives and is now being reviewed by the Senate, he said. “These people usually don’t tell you this unless it’s almost a sure thing,” Perez said. Once funding has been secured and a contractor hired, it could take six to nine months to build the center, Cowley said. Perez hopes to have the project completed next year. tania.chatila@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2109160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The city has already been awarded a series of grants, including $750,000 from the San Gabriel and Lower Los Angeles Rivers and Mountains Conservancy and $400,00 from a 2002 bond act for the project. Plans peg the center as an educational and recreational hub with a climbing wall, trails, educational exhibits and decorative boulders. Officials also hope to coordinate docent-led tours for school children. “Students can know what the different aspects of the park are for, how to conserve water, how water seeps in the ground,” City Manager Carol Cowley said. “I think this is going to be very valuable to the city.” La Puente currently has one park – the 22-acre La Puente Park – to serve the more than 40,000 residents living within the city’s 3.5-square-mile radius. last_img read more

Transfer report: Barcelona close to signing Manchester City target

first_img1 Ousmane Dembele Barcelona are close to completing a £118m deal for Manchester City target Ousmane Dembele.The 20-year-old has become one of the most wanted men in football over the past two seasons and he is finally set to leave Borussia Dortmund.City are long-term admirers of the France international but, according to El Mundo Deportivo, he is joining Barcelona.The Spanish side are set to part with £90m to sign Dembele, but a further £28m will be paid at a later date via add-ons.That means the forward could eventually cost a staggering £118m, but Barca are desperate to bring him in to bolster their attacking options.The LaLiga club sold Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record £196m earlier this summer and they believe Dembele can fill his boots.last_img read more

Man City must beat teams like Watford to join Europe’s best – Pep Guardiola

first_img Pep Guardiola hopes his team can push on 1 Pep Guardiola feels Manchester City must win games like this weekend’s at Watford to prove they can join the European elite.City opened their Champions League campaign with an emphatic 4-0 victory at Feyenoord in midweek, an impressive display that came just four days after a 5-0 hammering of Liverpool.But Guardiola’s men won just two of the six Premier League games that immediately followed a Champions League group game last season and the City boss feels his team must cope better with tough schedules.Guardiola said: “It will be a demanding game, especially coming just three days later.“With the trip back to Manchester, now travelling to London, there’s not too many hours for regeneration.“We have to handle that if we want to become a good team in the next years. We have to handle these situations, when one team have one week to prepare and we don’t have the time. In these situations we have to try to win.“When that situation happens we will be on the path to being a good team.”Watford have made an impressive start to the season under new manager Marco Silva, collecting eight points and remaining unbeaten in their first four games.Guardiola said: “Watford are just two points behind us, they made an amazing start. They didn’t lose one game.“I was so impressed with their performance against Southampton. They completely dominated the game.“They have fast players, new players and a good manager. What Silva did last season with Hull City was amazing. He is a fantastic trainer.“Watford is always complicated. They are so physical with the throw-ins and set-pieces and have quality up front.”Captain Vincent Kompany is unlikely to return but is now back in training after a calf injury.Guardiola, speaking at his pre-match press conference, was also vague on the prospect of veteran midfielder Yaya Toure being involved.Toure has been left out of the squad for the past two games and did not travel to Rotterdam at all this week.Asked if Toure could feature, Guardiola said: “We will see.”Guardiola, however, did go on to add that Toure remains an important member of the squad and will have a key role to play this season.He said: “I need him, the team needs him. He was so important last season and he’ll be so important this season.“He is part of the group. I admire him and what he has done in his career. He is an exceptional player.“In the last games he was not in the squad but of course he is going to help us.”last_img read more

Missouri House considering bill to block Grain Belt Express

first_img(Missourinet) The Missouri House is considering a bill that would stop Grain Belt Express in its tracks.The Public Service Commission last month approved the plan for Clean Line to place wind energy overhead transmission lines across Missouri. This bill would ban companies being able to place those lines through eminent domain.Jeff Bergstrom with Marshall Municipal Utilities said at a House hearing this week that Grain Belt would save his customers a lot of money.“Marshall is a small community. We struggle. We have poverty. An opportunity like this is very huge for Marshall…to compete in today’s world.”But some of the landowners who would see power poles on their property are not fans.“I’m going, as a landowner, [to] give up a lot of income to allow something to come across my property that I will get no value from,” farmer Marilyn O’Bannon says.The PSC says landowners will get paid at a fair rate for the property taken from them.Grain Belt Express would cross our area in Chariton, Randolph, and Monroe counties.last_img read more

Virus-infected plants are more alluring to bumble bees

first_imgBumble bees have a thing for tomato plants, especially if they’re harboring a destructive virus. That’s the curious finding of a new study, in which researchers released the insects into spaces that contained either normal tomato plants or those infected with the cucumber mosaic virus (CMV). CMV alters the gene expression of the tomato plants it infects, stunting their growth and distorting their leaves, and it can cause severe losses of crops worldwide. It also causes the plant to emit a different scent than noninfected tomatoes, researchers report today in PLOS Pathogens. The scent appears to make a difference; the bees were more likely to visit infected plants than noninfected plants, and they spent more time buzzing around them. That preference likely keeps the virus going in tomato plants, according to a mathematical model the team developed. The team says further research could lead to ways to increase bee pollination of important crops.last_img read more

Argentines caught between love and indifference for Maradona

first_img\R Buenos Aires, June 30 (AFP) Argentine legend Diego Maradona is a controversial idol, worshipped as a god for his World Cup-winning exploits but whose life of excess has left a tormented public back home torn between veneration and derision. The 57-year-old hit the headlines in Russia this week when he was filmed making two-handed middle-finger gestures to fans during Argentina’s narrow win over Nigeria in their final World Cup pool game. How to take his attention-grabbing outbursts is a recurring theme back home in Argentina. “He thinks that the love that Argentines lavish on him is so great that when he behaves badly we’ll look the other way,” said 55-year-old businessman Bruno Sollner. Daniel Carballo, 56, agreed that Maradona “is not an example, at least not for me and most of my friends and my family, no.” “There are things that are not acceptable, but well, he’s like that,” Carballo added. Other South Americans tend to perceive Argentines as arrogant, and Maradona’s cockiness and public anguish seem to personify a nation’s suffering at its team’s stuttering performance in Russia. “He is arrogant, he gets out of control because of arrogance,” said Sollner. Maradona got adoration for his goals against England in the 1986 World Cup, both the cheat goal he scored with his hand — he called it the “Hand of God” — and another, when he danced past five English players to score what is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest goals of all time. In Buenos Aires that day, he became a god. It was almost as if he had avenged with a football Argentina’s painful defeat in the Falklands War against Britain four years earlier.advertisement – Idol of a new generation – ============================ Irreverent, charismatic and provocative, Maradona remains an idol in Argentina, even for a generation too young to have seen him play, when his name became synonymous with footballing genius. Paula Garcia Paz, a teacher, was six when Maradona lifted the World Cup in 1986. “I’ll never forget it, that goal against England is something so memorable for Argentines,” she said. Sollner said “we love him because he has stood up to the powerful, because on the pitch he never gave up, and you can see how much defeat hurts him. “That devotion for a soccer fan is vital, it’s called sweating for the shirt,” he added. The antics at the World Cup have been amusing and disturbing by turns, but for Argentines a distracting sideshow to the main event on the pitch. Carried out of his seat in the VIP box after the match, he was forced to deny rumors he had been hospitalized, saying the next day that he was “very alive.” “In Russia he’s caused a stir, he’s a guy who retired decades ago and who won things 30 years ago, but if he sneezes. we’re all on tenterhooks, waiting. That’s unique. That’s Maradona,” said Sollner. – Diego, to the Nth degree – ============================ Those who know Maradona describe him as having an explosive personality while keeping his feet on the ground, despite having reached a sporting Olympus. “Diego was a kid in the slum, with a kite, on which he wrote the name Maradona. He started to run and the kite took flight, but he stayed on the ground,” is how biographer Guillermo Blanco puts it. Blanco said Maradona “just like everyone else has goodness, badness, ego, solidarity… but when he does something, he’s unlike others who are considered ‘balanced.’ He does it to the Nth degree.” Angry with his daughters, in a legal battle with his ex-wife, scammed by a relative or banned for doping at the 1994 World Cup, Maradona’s turbulent front-page life makes him a figure of pity for many Argentines, particularly the middle class. They still deride him for flaunting his friendships with late leftist leaders Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez. He insists he no longer takes cocaine, a habit that began in his heyday with Italian team Napoli, but his behavior during the Nigeria match has given rise to some concern. “He needs to continue getting attention like in former times, but by giving an even worse example,” said Laura Orsi. “He is an icon of another time, but he erased all the glory with his behaviour: drugs, alcohol and fame went to his head,” said the 56-year-old systems analyst. – More than Messi – =================== There are inevitable comparisons between Maradona and Lionel Messi, but until the younger man wins a World Cup, Maradona remains a cut above for most Argentines.advertisement “Messi is a phenomenon, but the world of football, until now, has not seen a player like Maradona,” his old teammate Claudia Caniggia said recently. Another contemporary, Julio Olarticoechea, agreed: “Seeing him, not only in games, but in training, was something else. Diego was magic. That’s the word.” “Messi still hasn’t managed to give us the happiness Diego did,” said Garcia Paz, the teacher. “He thought he was a god and made many mistakes, but I know that the day he leaves this world, Argentina will be paralyzed.” (AFP) AHAHlast_img read more

7 Tips to Make Your Donors an Irresistible Fundraising Offer

first_imgCLOSING EXAMPLE:Imagine your fundraising offer, in a nutshell, is to donate a meal that costs you less than $2.00.Your specific, simple, emotional, rewarding, leverageable, urgent, actionable appeal works like this (I’ve offered a few variations to show there’s no one right way to do this, but you’ll succeed if you include all the compelling elements):Your $2.00 gift will feed Joe a hot nutritious Thanksgiving dinner in the company of caring friends. Please give before Monday to reserve Joe’s place. Donate a $2.00 meal before next Monday so Joe gets a hot, nutritious Thanksgiving dinner in the company of caring friends this Thursday.The choice is yours. Joe can be cold, alone and hungry this Thanksgiving. Or warm and fed, in the company of a caring community. It all depends on you.Give the gift of a nutritious, hot Thanksgiving dinner, served in the company of friends. Just $2.00 received by Monday will reserve a place for Joe.Specific problem – You can show a photo of it. Donor can easily visualize the impact.Simple solution – Your reader is asked to do one thing. S/he doesn’t need to know all the reasons that bring Joe, and folks like him, to your mission. Or how you provide the meal. Or what ancillary services you provide (though you may hint at that in noting Joe will be “in the company of friends”). Offer up the information about additional support services you provide in your future donor communications.Emotional need – Fulfills human urge to help/make an impact; to connect with others.Reward – Feels good to help a real person. Now. Implication is that when you help someone in your community it makes the community betterLeverage – Good deal. Inexpensive. Fed someone, and then led to other “ripple effects” (implication Joe will get not just nutrition, but also other supportive care).Deadline – Feed someone a holiday meal, at a time people can feel very depressed and alone.Call to action – Do it now, here’s how, and it’s easy.Ready to Create Your Own Irresistible Fundraising Offer?Simply include these seven elements and you’ll be ahead of the game.And remember to keep it simple and focused.Black and white is good when it comes to offering options to join you (or not) in your mission. Your donor should think “Yes, I’ll help” or “No, I won’t help.”And, since your offer is so clear and compelling it would be unthinkable for them to say “no.”Right? 1. Specific ProblemSomething you can visualize happening. Or not happening. Not something broad and generic like “support our cause.”  If you’ve had success in the past with a generic appeal, I understand. That can work, especially with folks who already ‘get it,” but that limits your reach and appeal.  To expand beyond folks who already love you requires greater specificity. And, to be frank, when you’re more specific you’ll secure larger gifts. So stop leaving money on the table and describe a specific fundraising goal and cost to achieve what you propose.ACTION TIP:  If you know it costs $20/month to feed a senior, I’d like to know that.  In fact, in deciding how much I should give, I need to know that! It might cause me to give $240 to feed a senior for a year.  If you just ask me to “support our senior nutrition program with a gift of any amount,” I may just give you $25.#NFGtips: Before you send out any appeal, make sure your donation page makes it easy for donors to give.2. Simple SolutionSomething capable of being easily grasped by your audience.  Not all the underlying complexities.  Your fundraising offer is not a place to educate your donors. Or try to explain them into giving. Don’t feel compelled to expound on every nuance of what you do. Or every piece of the puzzle.  Get right to the most important part of what you do.  The demonstrated outcome.ACTION TIP: Donors simply want to show you they care. They want to make the happy ending come true. They want to see themselves as heroes.  Giving becomes a reflection in the mirror of who they are: compassionate, generous, values-based people. Donors will give when they’re persuaded that doing so is an excellent expression of who they are. If you want to tell the rest of the story (and you should), do it after the fact. In your thank you letters, emails and year-round communications. By the time next year rolls around, they’ll have a whole story bank in their minds and hearts, and will likely give even more passionately.Think of your fundraising offer as lighting the first spark. Then let your stewardship communications over the ensuing year fan the flames. 7. Call to ActionAsk early and often. Think about the single, most important thing you need to communicate; then tie your opening to your reason for writing as quickly as possible. It may be only thing your prospect will read before deciding whether or not to continue reading, or simply toss you into trash.ACTION TIP: Make your ask explicit. Spell it out in black and white. Force a decision with introduction that triggers an “I’ll help/I won’t help” decision.Every morning Jim dreams of getting onto a basketball court again. But his war injury means this will never happen. Unless you help.Isabelle dreams of being 1st in her family to go to college and ‘make something of herself.’ Instead she’ll probably get a minimum wage job right out of high school. Unless you help.Offer multiple ways to give (e.g., via remit piece and envelope; link to your website; telephone number). Make branded giving pages user-friendly and mobile responsive. Assure the landing pages include the campaign-specific call to action. Begin with “YES! I’ll help _________.” This seals the deal and helps the donor feel warm and fuzzy about their decision to help. 4. Donor BenefitsHuman beings always ask themselves: “What’s in it for me?” Always show your donor what the benefit will be if they give. Remind them they’ll feel really good.  Studies show merely contemplating giving releases “feel good” dopamine. Everything about giving –thinking and doing –is good for us!ACTION TIP: Tell prospective donors giving will save a life… lead to a cure… offer a resource for them and their children… make their community a better place. You can also add in benefits like tax deductions, inclusion in a giving society and even token gifts (like invitations to free events, being entered into a raffle to win something, etc.). Perhaps one of the biggest benefits you can offer is to make your donor feel like a hero. 3. EmotionalPeople give when their hearts are touched.  Usually from ONE compelling story.  Often from a photo that depicts this story, accompanied by a compelling caption. A zingy, succinct opening line can help as well.ACTION TIP: Come up with something memorable and “sticky” with which folks can easily connect. Usually the best way to do this is through storytelling. Don’t make it an educational lesson or intellectual exercise. Something people will struggle to remember. People don’t give because of the fact that 27,000 people in your community are hungry. Or 200,000 birds are soaked in oil and can’t fly. They don’t give to statistics. They don’t give with their heads. They give when something tugs at their heart strings. One hungry child. One oil-drenched, grounded bird. One wrong they can believably right with their gift.center_img 6. DeadlineStrike while the iron is hot. You’ve worked hard to trigger folks’ emotions. Don’t let them put off giving until a future time, when their ardor may have cooled.  Offer deadlines.ACTION TIP: Create a sense of scarcity.  No one likes to lose out on a good deal. Matching grant deadline.  Doors about to close deadline. People waiting in line deadline.  Year-end tax deduction deadline. Even if you can’t find a natural “scarcity” deadline, give some kind of deadline like: “Do it by next Monday.” 5. LeverageOffer the donor a “good deal” – show them how they get a bigger bang for their buck than may seem to be true at first blush.  People love to S-T-R-E-T-C-H their dollars.ACTION TIP: Describe how their dollar goes further than they might imagine. One meal provided in the third world will seem relatively cheap. One dollar given that will be matched dollar-for-dollar due to your matching grant is alluring.  One dollar given that has ripple effects, helping not just the recipient, but their entire family, is tempting. How to Create a Nonprofit Fundraising Offer That Can’t Be Refused Do you know what the 40/40/20 rule is? It’s something long preached by direct mail experts, and it reveals that the key to success with your fundraising appeal is not the thing most nonprofits spend the greatest amount of time on.Alas, it’s not the “creative.”Here’s how the “40-40-20 Rule” goes:40 percent of a direct mailing’s success is dependent upon the list; 40 percent of the success comes from the offer; and 20 percent of the success is due to the creative.40 – Mailing list (audience you’re talking to)40 – Offer (what you’re asking audience to do)20 – Creative (words, pictures, fonts, colors and design)Today we’re going to talk about the offer. Because if you don’t make it clear and easy for folks to take the exact action you desire, then the rest of your mailing has little purpose.7 Compelling Fundraising Offer Essentialslast_img read more

As Humanitarian Crises Multiply, Maternal Health and Safety of Women Becoming a Focus

Women and girls also become more vulnerable to violence during times of crisis, she said, by virtue of nothing but their gender. [Video Below]Daniels and other experts discussed efforts by humanitarian agencies to better address maternal health and gender-based violence in crisis settings at the Wilson Center on November 20, supported by the Maternal Health Task Force and UNFPA.Providing a baselineMore than one third of maternal deaths world-wide occur in crisis settings, said Janet Meyers, deputy director of health policy and practice at the International Medical Corps. During an average humanitarian emergency — famine, conflict, extreme flooding, etc. — you can expect approximately four percent of the population to be pregnant; that’s a lot of people with different needs than your average beneficiary, she said. Furthermore, health facilities are usually destroyed, transportation is limited, community members are unaware of services, and donor services are limited.“At the beginning of a crisis, we can’t do everything, we can’t do cancer screenings, it’s not appropriate we don’t have time,” said Sarah Chynoweth, an independent consultant for sexual and reproductive health in emergencies. “We have to choose and decide which activities we’re going to focus on.”To help guide these decisions, a World Health Organization working group has developed a field manual and what’s called the “Minimum Initial Service Package,” or MISP. The MISP outlines steps to reduce mortality and morbidity associated with reproductive health problems. The five main objectives of the MISP, said Chynoweth, are to organize responding organizations and facilitate sexual and reproductive health coordination between them; prevent and manage sexual violence; reduce HIV transmission; prevent maternal and newborn death and disability; and begin laying the groundwork for implementation of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services down the road.An interagency working group of humanitarian organizations also packages essential commodities into prepared emergency reproductive health kits, which can provide condoms, clean delivery kits, post-rape treatments, and other equipment to thousands. The kits typically serve a population of 100,000 to 300,000 for a period of three months and even “enable you to set up an emergency maternity ward if need be,” said Daniels.Erasing rape from warPreventing gender-based violence during an emergency is perhaps even more difficult than providing basic health services. It is well known that incidences of sexual and gender-based violence escalate in times of crisis and displacement, said Danaé van der Straten Ponthoz, a legal advisor for the Swiss organization TRIAL (Track Impunity Always), which advocates on the behalf of victims of genocide, war crimes, and other crimes against humanity.The first line of defense is to engage men and boys. “Raising awareness about gender-based violence and the rights it violates are good tactics, but they are not the most effective techniques,” she said. Instead, she suggested programs that encourage good behavior in young boys and men by reinforcing their role as protectors of their mothers, daughters, and sisters.It’s also important to engage with any relevant military and peacekeeping forces, not only as critical partners in prevention and protection, but because they are perpetrators in some places, said van der Straten Ponthoz.Last year, as part of the European training mission in Mali, van der Straten Ponthoz was sent to work with government forces in hopes of reducing human rights violations. “Out of the six battalions that have been trained so far in Koukikoro, none of them have committed human rights violations,” she said. Van der Straten Ponthoz recounted the personal account of a Malian soldier’s thoughts on rape before and after training. “Rape is the beauty of war,” he told her without reservation at the beginning of 10-week training period; afterwards he said, “I will treat every woman with respect like my mother and sisters.”More male engagement is needed and more military personnel need to be trained on gender-based violence, said van der Straten Ponthoz. “There is no single answer to this issue which is very complex, and it requires a response both on the prevention and the accountability level.”Empowering women against vulnerability in conflictThere are practical things humanitarian organizations can do to reduce the vulnerability of women and girls though. It’s important to segregate latrines by gender in camps and have locking doors, said Chynoweth, and keep in mind where women are likely to have to go to collect firewood.Availability of certain medicines are especially critical to women and girls. A signature intervention for UNFPA is their provision of “dignity kits” to NGOs and partners, which include essential supplies for hygiene and survival such as whistles, flash lights, underwear, maternity pads, and tooth paste. “This has been a really key intervention with regard to protection [and] sanitation,” said Daniels, “but it’s also really important as an entry point to attract them so we can engage them and begin to talk to them about how they can protect themselves during emergencies, and [provide] basic information that they’ll need to take care of themselves during pregnancy and childbirth.”Access to resources like post-exposure prophylaxis to minimize HIV transmission, emergency contraception, and psychosocial care services for rape victims need to be consistently available as well. “Women and girls have fled. A lot of times when they’re fleeing they don’t bring their contraception and don’t have access to it, especially emergency contraception,” said Melissa Sharer of John Snow, Inc.The long tail of ebolaThese are immediate needs, but “disasters are becoming more and more protracted,” said Daniels. “If the woman or the girl survives the first week or two weeks of the disaster, the next thing that she’s contending with is trafficking, forced marriage, a teenage pregnancy, or female genital mutilation; therefore, we can’t just do our classic humanitarian interventions.”To adapt, a recurring theme among the panelists was the need for responding organizations to provide integrated health services – not just responding to HIV/AIDS or malaria, for example, but being able to respond to any need a woman or girl has. The devastation wrought by Ebola in West Africa is a case in point, said John Welch, a chief clinical officer of Ebola response with Partners in Health.“Before this outbreak, only 50 percent of women in Liberia had access to skilled birth attendants,” Welch said. “The estimate is now that’s down 30 percent.” Similarly, access to prenatal care and malaria treatment was 40 and 50 percent before the crisis, but has now dropped to 25 percent. Welch recently returned from Liberia where he worked to strengthen and open new Ebola clinics. He recounted first-hand the collapsing health system and available services for pregnant women.Women face a greater risk of contracting Ebola because they are the caretakers, the ones ensuring their family members are buried with dignity, said Welch. Consequently, “70 percent of Ebola patients are women.” Due to fear and vulnerability of exposure, many health clinics are understaffed and “safe delivery is virtually impossible.” Pregnant women who are not infected are also dying, as the symptoms of labor complications, like pre-eclampsia, are similar to those of Ebola and a lab test could take days, by which time the woman will be dead, said Welch.In this way, Ebola is devastating the health system and putting thousands of women at risk. Over the next 12 months, an estimated 800,000 women are expected to deliver in West African countries affected by Ebola, Welch said. It will take the integrated efforts of ministries of health and humanitarian agencies to restore health systems – and strengthen them, “so we don’t have to see this again.”Building resilienceUNFPA is usually the lead organization to facilitate services and help organizations integrate sexual and reproductive health services during crises. In 2008, when Cyclone Nargis hit Burma, UNFPA coordinated with partners to provide reproductive health kits and rented boats to provide transportation for emergency obstetric care, said Chynoweth. “The reproductive health response after Cyclone Nargis was the best I have ever seen. It was absolutely incredible,” she said. “We have so much we can learn from them, in terms of coordination, working with partners, [and] linkages with development actors.”But that story is sadly the exception. Women and girls often go lacking during even the most visible disasters, said Chynoweth. Four months after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, there were women going into labor without access to clean delivery kits and far from the nearest hospital, thanks to funding shortages, lack of trained health care workers, and delays in supplies.Responding more effectively requires more community involvement and awareness, said Chynoweth. “We can’t just fly in, provide services, and expect people to come,” she said. “We need women, and girls, and communities to be involved in the programs that affect their own lives.” This is especially true in conflict settings where preventing gender-based violence is a main priority, like the Middle East.With Ebola in West Africa and conflicts in Syria, Iraq, and South Sudan, “what we faced this year, has really led to a need for us to evolve or revolutionize the way we respond in emergencies,” said Daniels. As crises become more prolonged, humanitarian organizations must begin paying more attention to setting up health systems to help women and girls not only today, but tomorrow as well.Event Resources:Sarah Chynoweth’s PresentationUgochi Daniels’ PresentationJanet Meyers’ PresentationMelissa Sharer’s PresentationPhoto GalleryVideo ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more

Exploring Group Antenatal Care in Low-Resource Settings

first_imgPosted on May 21, 2018May 22, 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)Amid persistent low coverage and poor quality of antenatal care (ANC) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)—and with recent guidelines from the World Health Organization calling for high quality ANC as well as more antenatal contacts—innovative approaches to delivering health care during pregnancy are needed. High quality ANC is not only vital to optimizing health during pregnancy, it also serves as an important touchpoint in the lives of women and families and can promote the use of health services in the future.Research in high-income countries has shown that compared to the traditional one-on-one model of ANC, group ANC—in which several women, typically of similar gestational age, gather for physical assessment, education, skill-building and peer support—can offer positive health outcomes such as decreases in preterm delivery, increased prenatal knowledge, higher rates of breastfeeding and higher engagement in care. CenteringPregnancy®, the model of group ANC for which the most evidence exists, was established to meet clinical guidelines for ANC in the United States. As such, most of the available evidence on group ANC comes from high-income countries and more research is needed to explore the feasibility, acceptability and effects of group ANC models in LMICs.A “generic” model of group ANC for low-resource settingsTo address this gap in evidence, researchers have begun exploring group ANC models in low-resource settings. A recent systematic review and evidence synthesis by Sharma and colleagues analyzed existing literature on group ANC in LMICs and extracted common attributes of models used to date in such settings. They synthesized descriptive data from group ANC experiences in 16 low and middle-income countries—derived from nine published papers and 10 key informant interviews—to develop a composite “generic” model of group care for LMIC settings. It outlines fundamental components that are consistent across all settings, as well as flexible components that may be adapted based on context. Standard components include providing a physical assessment during the group session, facilitating discussion to cultivate learning and peer support and incorporating self-care activities by women. The “generic” model includes 90-120-minute sessions with a group of 8-12 women of similar gestational age facilitated by the same two leaders (including one health care provider) for the duration of the program. Flexible components, such as the number of sessions and session content, may vary depending on the local guidelines and setting.As the authors note,“Several components of the ‘generic’ model aim to empower and support women. For example, engaging in discussion and shared care with other women of similar gestational age helps to normalize the experience of pregnancy and gives women a voice for knowledge sharing and a sense of community for support. The group format also fosters self-efficacy and social support for pregnant woman by creating a forum for participants to build skills and confidence, share experiences and resources and socialize with one another.”Adapting the model in India: Methods and resultsTo investigate whether this model would be possible and accepted by community members in an urban low-resource setting, Jolivet and colleagues conducted a feasibility study in Vadodara, a city of around 1.2 million in India, with both providers and beneficiaries. The researchers adapted the model to include four sessions (three antenatal sessions and one postnatal care session) and reflect local clinical care standards. Conducted at three different types of facilities where ANC services are commonly provided—a private maternity hospital, a public health clinic and a community-based mother and child health center—they demonstrated one session of the model to doctors and auxiliary nurse midwives, and to pregnant women and support persons. Focus group discussions, interviews and a survey collected feedback on participants’ perceptions about the group model specifically about the physical assessment, self-assessment (in which women measured their own blood pressure and weight), peer support and education components of the model as well as potential implementation challenges and solutions.According to the authors,“Ultimately, both groups of participants saw group ANC as a vehicle for delivering more comprehensive ANC services, improving experiences of care, empowering women to become more active partners and participants in their care, and potentially addressing some current health system challenges.”Overall, participants reported feeling comfortable with the physical assessment, and providers found the self-assessments to be a “novel idea… [that] helped women pay more attention and develop a feeling of ownership of their health information.” Women were enthusiastic about the model, offering solutions to facilitate its implementation, such as conducting sessions in the afternoons to accommodate women’s schedules and grouping women by common language in addition to gestational age.Despite some initial skepticism about group participation and engagement, providers found that most women were attentive and more than willing to share information and experiences with the group. Providers also expressed that the group model could meet the goals of high quality ANC while allowing more time for counseling and learning in an interactive format. As one provider reflected, “I could see that they were happy playing games and learning. It is a better way of teaching.”The findings from these studies can help drive further research testing the effects of group ANC in LMICs. The generic model suggests how researchers and programmers might approach or design group ANC in their own low-resource setting, while the feasibility study is a key step towards making group ANC accessible to women in urban India.The experiences of group ANC in low-resource settings, while limited, are quite promising.

Dybala’s Man Utd move didn’t collapse because of me, insists agent

There were just issues between the clubs.”Rumours of Dybala leaving have been prominent ever since Maurizio Sarri’s appointment as Juve’s head coach, with the former Napoli boss reportedly viewing him as expendable due to tactical reasons, claims backed up by him being an unused substitute in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Parma.Sarri was missing for Juve’s opening weekend clash in Serie A as he recovers from pneumonia, but standing in for the coach, Pavel Nedved insisted that Dybala had a part to play in Turin still.”Dybala will never be a problem for us because he is a great player,” the former Bianconeri midfielder said on Friday.”Maurizio is using him as a false nine and I believe he is playing the role very well. He had a great pre-season.”The latest club to emerge as a potential destination is Paris Saint-Germain and, although Antun accepts things can change very quickly, he claims he is not preparing for any imminent talks in the French capital.”No, I don’t have any plans [to go to Paris],” he said. “Paulo must enjoy the moment with Juventus.

Tecatito, Chicharito back in El Tri squad

first_imgJesus “Tecatito” Corona will compete for his first cap under Mexico manager Tata Martino, and a number of 2018 World Cup veterans return to the team after missing the Gold Cup in El Tri’s squad to face the United States and Argentina in September friendly matches. Corona was called into Martino’s first squad but later pulled out of the March friendly matches, setting off a spat in which the manager said he hadn’t heard from the player and implied he wouldn’t call him in again. That appears to be water under the bridge with the Porto player, who came up as a winger but recently has seen time at right back, included in the squad once again. Hirving Lozano missed the Gold Cup with an injury after being left off the initial squad. The newly signed Napoli winger is included in the 31-man group. So too is Mexico’s all-time leading scorer, forward Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, who missed the Gold Cup as he enjoyed the birth of his first child. Atletico Madrid midfielder Hector Herrera, who requested the summer off to rest up after his club season and complete his summer move to La Liga, also returns.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club?

Coming here was the right move, in a good dressing room, where the manager wants winners who can really help the team.

Hazard grabs first Real Madrid goal and assist

first_imgEden Hazard scored his first goal for Real Madrid in Saturday’s La Liga encounter against Granada.The Belgium international had produced a string of largely indifferent displays since returning from a hamstring injury sustained shortly after joining Madrid from Chelsea in a reported €100 million (£88.5m) deal in June.But after failing to score or assist in his first five matches for the club, Hazard found the back of the net in the top-of-the-table showdown with Granada at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Panenka proud of legendary penalty & reveals who does it best

It makes me happy to hear that all around the world it is called a Panenka.”All these years later, Panenka says that he was never nervous before attempting that famous kick while adding that he never really considered the consequences of what could go wrong.”In the final game against Germany I was not nervous at all, I knew that this way is the best chance to score,” Panenka added. “When it went in I was so happy, not because I scored last, but because we won this amazing trophy as such a small nation.”It was the best chance to score. I missed it only once in my life before Belgrade 1976 in a friendly match in Southern Bohemia. I invented it like two years before.”I guess I would have to go to work in a factory for the rest of my life if I failed it!”He added: “I just figured that every keeper always jumps to one side, so it could be good to kick the ball down the middle.”After every practice, I competed with our goalkeeper Zdenek Hruska in penalties.

How Airline Consolidators Boost Your Commissions

first_imgWritten By: Stephanie Knight, Copywriter – Sky Bird Travel & Tours   If you’re unsatisfied with how much (or how little) your current commissions are, you should consider working with an airline consolidator. The great deals they provide on airfare gives travel agents the power to mark up commissions. Imagine being handed a blank check on which to write your desired amount of commissions! If you’re ready to give your business a boost, tune in to this monthly series on airline consolidation throughout 2018.   What is an airline consolidator?  Think of airline consolidators as the bulk food store of the travel industry. Through special relationships with airlines, they are able to buy seats in bulk and resell these tickets to travel agents at a reduced rate. This creates a symbiotic relationship between the airlines and the travel agents. On one hand, the airline is able to spread word of their routes and ticketing options. On the other hand, agents get low airfare. Agents can then pass the savings on to clients while still earning a nice commission for themselves.   A Brief History of Airline Consolidation Airline consolidation started decades ago as a way for airlines to reach the VFR market (visiting friends and relatives.) However, it is now the only way for professional travel agents to make money on airline tickets.   This system was highly restrictive. However, this is no longer the case. Younger members of the travel industry may be warned against using airline consolidators by their more experienced peers who have memories of dealing with a difficult system. Working with airfare consolidators is much simpler now.  In fact, most airline consolidators have the same rules for making purchases as airline websites, except agents get the added bonus of making their own mark ups.   Airline Consolidators Get Agents More Money When you work with an airline consolidator, you’ll often find fares that are 40-65% lower than published fares. These “clearance” fares can be marked up by the agents to whatever amount they wish while still getting their clients the best deal. For example: the best published fare from New York City to London is listed as $1,300. An airline consolidator may be offering that same route for only $600. A travel agent can mark up the fare to $1,000 which earns them a $400 profit, and it still beats the lowest fare that a client might find on their own.   Airline Consolidators Give Agents More Freedom Not only do travel agents have the power to choose how much they will mark up their fares, they also have the power to decide when to do so. For instance, maybe a travel agent is approached by a customer who has booked with her for many years. They have a good rapport and the agent wants to thank them for their loyalty. They have the power to set a lower markup for this particular customer as a means of thanking them for their business and ensuring it will continue in the future.  Maybe an agent is dealing with a difficult customer. The agent wants to smooth things over  as much as possible, so the customer doesn’t leave bad reviews. The agent has the ability to offer a low enough discount that the customer feels compensated.  Keep Commissions in the Agents’ Pockets Many agents, especially niche agents, do not have air contracts. This forces the agent to send clients out into the world to find their own air fare. This situation has the potential to create a variety of problems.   First, and perhaps the most obvious problem for travel agents, there is no commission to be made on airfare if you’re not selling it. You may feel like booking airfare is out of your realm of expertise. Maybe you’re a bit intimidated by the idea of booking airfare. An airline consolidator can remedy this.   Another problem that arises from sending clients to find their own airfare: they may not find the best deal. When it comes down to it, most people are not as savvy as travel agents when it comes to trip planning. They may not find the cheapest route, the most direct route, or a highly-rated route. They may be unfamiliar with airport layouts and think a one hour layover is plenty of time to catch that connecting flight, where a travel agent would know it takes one hour just to get through security. The last thing you want is a client making errors that conflict with the tour you’ve already planned for them. When booking a client’s trip, you want them to feel confident they’ve made a good choice, not lost and confused.  Additionally, having to do their own research may leave a bad taste in the client’s mouth. Think about it: they’ve chosen to book their trip through a travel agent because they either don’t have the knowledge to do so on their own, or they don’t have the time. And now the person they’ve entrusted to plan their dream trip is telling them to find their own airfare. It might cause the client to seek out a different travel agent that does sell airfare. Imagine buying a car only to be told you have to buy and install the breaks on your own. It’s a much safer bet to work with an airline consolidator.   The Takeaway Airline consolidators allow agents to take control of their earnings by giving them the ability to mark up fares when and how they see fit. It avoids the problem of sending clients to look for their own airfare, and therefore more money stays in the pockets of agents. Before you book your next client, put an airline consolidator to work for you!last_img read more

Dont Be Surprised to See Cocktail Bars at Kentucky Distilleries

first_imgFor a long time — up until 2016, in fact, when Kentucky Senate Bill 11 passed — when you visited a distillery in Kentucky (such as the many points along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail), you were treated, mostly, to a tour and a tasting. There were sometimes special tours, of course, and special events, but you weren’t allowed to have a cocktail mixed up or take a seat and soak up the beauty of a bar. That changed, though, with the passage of the bill, which allowed (among other things) distilleries to serve their products by the drink.Since that time, a number of distilleries — both new and established — have opened cocktail bars in various iterations. Some, like Michter’s, Old Forester, and Copper & Kings, maintain regular bar hours while others are only open at specific times or for special events. Either way, it’s easy to see that cocktails are here to stay in distilleries in Kentucky.To find out more about the connection between cocktail bars and distilleries in Kentucky (and more specifically, Louisville), we talked to Joe and Matt Magliocco, respectively president and vice president of Michter’s Distillery, which recently opened its downtown Fort Nelson location, complete with its own cocktail bar, the Bar at Fort Nelson. Editors’ Recommendations The Manual Spirit Awards 2019: The Best Craft Liquor Made in America Next The Bar at Fort Nelson. Michter’s Distillery The Best New-School Kentucky Distilleries 1. AM to PM. 2. Rye Manhattan 3. Bourbon Old Fashioned. 4. Springfield Punch 10 Best Whiskies for Irish Coffee For Joe Magliocco, the addition of a bar was meant to be educational.“The bartenders around the U.S. deserve so much credit for the resurgence of American whiskey. They did tremendous work to bring it back and make it popular again by showing customers how great it is in cocktails. We would like visitors to Fort Nelson to learn about how to make good cocktails and about the importance of the quality ingredients and ice.”“The bartenders around the U.S. deserve so much credit for the resurgence of American whiskey.”Matt Magliocco agreed.“Michter’s as we know it today simply wouldn’t exist without the support of bartenders in the U.S. and around the world. Since the re-establishment of the brand in the 1990s, Michter’s has benefited enormously from the support and advice of bartenders who appreciate the quality of the liquid and proudly work with Michter’s in their own cocktail programs.”In addition, there is the Fort Nelson Fellows program for bartenders, allowing for education on the industry side as well, ranging from guest shifts to master classes with bartenders from around the world.What that translates into is a bar program designed around not only classic cocktails (a list of which was developed in conjunction with cocktail guru Dave Wondrich), but inventive drinks created by the bar staff, such as a multi-layered milk punch named Long Walks in the Rain.center_img Michter’s DistilleryMatt Magliocco, who worked on developing the bar program, said that their focus was to put forth a product that could stand up to other cocktail bars around the world. The bar wouldn’t just be a place to kill time while waiting for a tour. Instead, the Michter’s team worked to ensure that visitors would come and enjoy a drink regardless of a tour.“Our hope is that guests will always find something to enjoy, be it a well-balanced version of a familiar favorite (like our classic Rye Manhattan) or their first experience with a multi-layered milk punch (like our bar manager Dante Wheat’s self-developed Long Walks in the Rain).”For something that was not even in the plans when the brand went to contract in 2011, the bar has been a resounding success so far.“Knock on wood — the Bar has been busy every day since opening to the public on February 2,” Matt Magliocco said. “ It has certainly been [seeing] a crowd of passionate whiskey drinkers alongside people who have time to kill and just want to enjoy a great drink or a coffee while they’re in the area.”So, the next time you’re in Louisville and decide you need a drink, look up the local distilleries. Not only will you have access to their spirits, poured by the people that know them best, chances are you’ll also get to try those same spirits in new and delicious cocktails.

Danner X Helinox Dropped the Only Camp Gear We Need for Spring

first_img Editors’ Recommendations Next To Find Beauty In Yosemite, Just Whip Out Your (Honda) Passport The Best Backpacking Chairs for Your Next Adventure 1 of 12 The Best Men’s Waterproof Boots for Tackling All Weather center_img Previous Allbirds and Just Water Collaborate on Sneakers to Save the Amazon Rainforest Among the ancient ceremonies that bid farewell (and f-off) to winter, ours involve a new pair of boots, a camping chair, and a table. Heritage outdoor brands Danner and Helinox are kicking off the Spring camping season with a new 2019 mini-line featuring those three items. This special-edition collab is making outdoorsmen go H.A.M.Danner and Helinox have built their brands on making tools and footwear that last a lifetime and they’re finally coming together to swap secrets and share craftsmanship. The pure aesthetic result of the Danner X Helinox collab is stone-cold foxy, relying on a black-and-white grid print to cross the line’s trifecta.Just because it’s spring doesn’t mean we want Easter purple hiking boots.The Helinox Chair One ($150) and Table One ($150) use precision engineered nylon joints and an ultra-durable Helinox textile created specifically for this collaboration (i.e. the grid design we were boasting above). For being actual furniture, Chair One and Table One pack down to nearly nothing and can be set up and broken down without an Ikea manual. Their single-shock corded pole construction deserves a big thank you for that simple assembly.In true Helinox fashion, the pole frames are made of industry-leading DAC aluminum.DAC, for those who don’t know, is a South Korean company that, for the past 30 years has dominated the ultra-light yet ultra-strong alloy production for outdoor gear (they’re used in tents by The North Face, Kelty, Black Diamond, etc.). Trusted DAC aluminum poles on the Danner X Helinox chairs are one thing, but the collab boots also rock a custom DAC upper lace hook, which is a small but baller detail.The Portland-made Danner Light collab hiking boots ($390) have a classic Vibram Kletterlift outsole, Danner’s renowned stitch-down construction, and the same Helinox textile, plus ultra-strong Dyneema laces keep the boot sturdy. FYI, Dyneema is a badass lightweight fiber that’s 15x stronger than steel. (Kisses bicep because that’s hardcore and so are we.)Danner’s immense track record in durable leather boots is hard to top for a spring hiker, adding to the fact its GORE-TEX waterproof liner deflects April showers. Although, they’re so good looking we don’t want to get them muddy. However, Danner’s 2018 collab boot with Patagonia you definitely want to get wet and filthy.All-in-all, this is one steely line built around the basic concept of gnarly outdoor gear that is lightweight and completely essential to getting outside this spring. Hike to campsite, easy setup, chill. Is that so much to ask for? Danner X Helinox say, “Nah, we got you.”The two companies add, “Overbuilt yet featherweight, all three pieces are sure to be in your outdoor kit for a long time.” 14 Scandinavian Clothing Brands You Need to Knowlast_img read more

The first Monday of every May, you get to invite 500 of your closest “friends” to a fierce party at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, which just happens to be named after you. The party celebrates the annual opening of the latest exhibition at the institute, this year called “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” referencing Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on Camp.”OK, yes, I’ll admit that, although I knew who Susan Sontag was, I was a bit shaky on her writing. But trust us on this one: By “camp,” she wasn’t referring to enjoyment of the great outdoors, nor will we be seeing this book on the shelves of your nearest REI. In fact, as Steff Yotka’s essay in Vogue describes it, one gallery at the exhibit presents 58 bullet points from Sontag’s essay, inviting attendees to contemplate the concept of camp more deeply, when they aren’t busy appraising each other’s outfits.“[Camp] incarnates a victory of ‘style’ over ‘content,’ ‘aesthetics’ over ‘morality,’ of irony over tragedy.”Among her other observations, Sontag writes that, “Camp is the consistently aesthetic experience of the world. It incarnates a victory of ‘style’ over ‘content,’ ‘aesthetics’ over ‘morality,’ of irony over tragedy. Or maybe … camp (is) ‘the love of the exaggerated, the ‘off,’ of things-being-what-they-are-not.’”If you ask me (and the rest of us for whom a tuxedo is probably the most dressed up we’ll ever be in our lives), the Met Gala has been pretty camp for years now, no matter the topic of the latest exhibition. Monday night’s festivities did not disappoint. Here are, if not the best-dressed men at the event, at least the most interestingly put together.

Usa Jingu The Highlights Of One Of Kyushus Most Beautiful Shrines

first_imgAs you enter the precincts, you’ll be able to see the shrine offices to the right, across a beautiful pond.Also, to the right, there is the entrance to the Nishisando, a road that connects Usa Jingu with Dazaifu Tenmangu in Fukuoka, another very powerful shrine. These two shrines have played an essential role in spreading the knowledge and culture imported from the mainland countries.The Japanese diplomatic missions to Tang China and the Korean Peninsula would use the ports of Kyushu as departure and arrival points. Large religious institutions like Usa Jingu and Dazaifu Tenmangu were flourishing cultural centers that welcomed Chinese scholars and Buddhist monks from the mainland. Chokushimon – The Gate of Imperial EmissariesThe main shrine hall of Usa Jingu, called Jogu, consists of three altars. These altars are not accessible to visitors, being located behind the impressive Gate of the Imperial Emissaries (Chokushimon), pictured in the photo above.The first altar from the left is dedicated to the god Hachiman, the spirit of Emperor Ojin, and was established in 725. Hachiman presides over matters related to war and peace, as well as competitions. This is why athletes frequently visit Usa Jingu.The central one enshrines Himeookami, the Shinto deity of the original shrine on whose grounds Usa Jingu was built. It was erected in 733. This deity is considered to be a triad of deities; the same triad is worshipped at Munakata Shrine in Fukuoka. They are said to guard the safety of travelers, communication, and happiness. Togu Shrine, dedicated to the son of Emperor OjinThe precincts of Usa Jingu are quite expansive and dotted with smaller shrines. Each of them enshrines powerful deities and the spirits of Emperors who are regarded as deities.Take some time to visit the Treasure Hall (Homotsukan), a museum exhibiting precious objects and documents that belong to the cultural heritage of Usa Jingu. A Buddhist temple bell made in the Korean Peninsula and donated to Usa Jingu, precious craft objects and works of art, Noh masks and kimonos – many of the objects on display here are valuable national assets.Across the Omotesando road from the Treasure Hall is the Noh theater stage of the shrine, used for ceremonies and regular Noh performances. A special Noh performance dedicated to the guardian deities of the shrine is held here yearly on October 21. On this occasion, the actors use the valuable masks and costumes from the shrine collection, which are usually on display in the Treasure Hall. Usa Jingu Shrine – A Must-Visit Destination in Oita Omoto Shrine is the name of the original shrine that stood on these grounds before Usa Jingu was built here starting from 725. At present, the main hall of Omoto Shrine stands on a mountain to the south of Usa Jingu and is considered the Okunomiya (inner shrine) of the compound.Visitors to Usa Jingu can make a prayer from the distance to Omoto Shrine at this small altar, located right in front of the Gate of Imperial Emissaries. The “window” that substitutes the worship object offers a view of the sacred mountain whose guardian deity is enshrined at Omoto Shrine.5. Gegu – The Second Shrine Hall Access to Usa Jingu ShrineUsa Jingu can be reached in about 10 minutes by taxi from Usa Station in Usa City, Oita. Usa Station is connected to Oita Station and other major stations in northern Kyushu.From Oita Airport, take a limousine bus headed for Bungo Takada. It goes directly to Usa Jingu Shrine, and the ride takes about one hour.Discover the Depths of Kyushu Culture by Visiting Usa Jingu ShrineA visit to Usa Jingu can be a very special, even spiritual, experience enhanced by the sheer beauty of the shrine compound. The bright red structures create a stunning contrast with the green of the natural oak forest that surrounds the precincts.Moreover, the history of Usa Jingu allows a deeper understanding of the role played by Kyushu in Japan’s international relations with mainland China and the Korean Peninsula throughout the centuries.Whether you’re seeking scenic views, inspiring historical insights or an encounter with the complexity of Japan’s religions, Usa Jingu is a must-see in Kyushu. Usa Jingu View InformationIn cooperation with Usa Jingu and JETRO First established on the grounds of a local shrine representing the indigenous nature-oriented, scriptureless Shinto tradition, Usa Jingu gradually embraced Buddhism by inviting Buddhist monks from mainland China and the Korean Peninsula who possessed literacy and knowledge. A Shinto shrine supporting the Buddhist doctrine ever since it was built in 725 (Nara Period) is quite rare. This has become the distinctive feature of Usa Jingu.This collaboration of Shinto and Buddhism and international exchange led to Usa Jingu attaining unprecedented cultural and political power that deeply influenced the culture of the entire Kyushu region.Usa Jingu received the protection of both the Imperial Court and the warrior class over the centuries, its influence and power second only to Ise Grand Shrine in Mie Prefecture. Recent studies have shown that, at the peak of its power, Usa Jingu used to own about two-thirds of the entire arable land in Kyushu!The Highlights of Usa Jingu Shrine The altar on the right is dedicated to the spirit of Empress Jingu, mother of Emperor Ojin. It was first built in 823. She is a guardian deity of childbirth and marital relationships.These three altars are built in a style that is distinctive to Hachiman shrines, each consisting of a front and a back building. The deities are said to reside in the back buildings. The three altars form the main shrine hall, which is designated a National Treasure.Because they are said to answer a wide range of prayers, these deities are visited by people of all ages.

Saidaimon – The Western Great Gate Usa Jingu – Historical Background The Saidaimon Gate marks the entrance to the main shrine area. It was rebuilt in the late sixteenth century. Since then it has this gorgeously ornamented style, which can be rarely encountered on the grounds of a shrine.Notice the Imperial chrysanthemum symbol on the center gates. These gates are reserved for Imperial envoys. Regular visitors use the lateral gates to enter and leave the shrine grounds.3. Jogu – The Main Shrine Hall The large camphor tree in front of the main shrine altars is a sacred tree believed to answer prayers that come from the heart.4. The Altar of Omoto Shrine (Okunomiya) The main shrine hall of Usa Jingu was built in 725 as the earliest shrine dedicated to Hachiman, the spirit of Emperor Ojin (thought to have reigned between 270 and 370) worshipped as the guardian deity of warriors. At present, it is the head of the more than 40,000 Hachiman shrines in Japan. The Gegu is the second main shrine hall of Usa Jingu, located at the foot of the hill on top of which the main shrine is located. It was built in the early 9th century by order of Emperor Saga. While it enshrines the same deities worshipped at the main shrine, the Gegu is considered the place to go for prayers for good crops.Additional Points of Interest Read also Kuju Flower Park in Taketa City, Oita: A World of Fragrant Flowers!

Once you arrive in the parking lot of Usa Jingu, you’ll be walking along the Omotesando, the main road leading to the shrine. Cross the Shinkyo, the sacred crimson-red bridge over Yorimo River, and you’ll find yourself on the precincts.Here are five highlights that are worth a closer look for a better understanding of the cultural and spiritual significance of Usa Jingu.1. The Usa Torii Gate The entrance to any shrine is marked by a torii gate. At Usa Jingu, the torii gates have a distinctive appearance that you won’t see at any other shrine in Japan. This is why these gates are called Usa torii.First of all, the torii has a pointed roof, a sign of high rank of the association with the god Hachiman. You’ll notice there is no signboard bearing the name of the shrine. The shape of the torii is specific to Usa Jingu, so it was considered that there was no need to designate the name.Secondly, the two main pillars stand on stone foundations. And thirdly, black rings encircle the upper end of the main pillars – another feature that is unique to Usa torii gates. Usa Jingu, located in Usa, Oita Prefecture, is one of Kyushu’s most prominent shrines, having played a major role throughout the history of this region. The main shrine hall is a National Treasure of rare beauty.For anyone traveling to Kyushu, this is a must-visit place! In this article, we introduce the history and highlights of Usa Jingu Shrine, and explain why it is a destination that shouldn’t be missed out. Read alsolast_img read more

Also, STF earlier had arrested several Jamaat ul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) terrorists. It has been decided that from now on STF will not be a part of Kolkata Police. It will be separated and will be made a directorate named as STF, West Bengal, with its office at Ripon Street. An officer in the rank of Inspector General (IG) will head STF West Bengal.

A gazette notification to make STF a separate directorate will be published soon. During the past few years, STF has conducted several important raids and nabbed huge number of members from terrorist organizations and also keeps track on the FICN racketeer’s activity. It was felt recently that in order to strengthen the STF it must be made a separate body and must work independently.last_img read more

Egypt police use teargas to disperse Azhar student protesters

first_imgCAIRO– Ambulances and fire engines could be seen barreling toward the campus, while firefighters readied water hoses inside the university in an effort to extinguish tires set on fire earlier by student protesters.Egyptian police on Monday used teargas to disperse protests staged by hundreds of Al-Azhar University students who support ousted president Mohamed Morsi as the latter tried to get out of the university’s campus in eastern Cairo.At least 37 students suffered gas inhalation as plumes of teargas could be seen billowing from the university’s main entrance after scores of anti-riot police blocked the university gate to prevent student protesters from pouring out, eyewitnesses said. Ambulances and fire engines could be seen barreling toward the campus, while firefighters readied water hoses inside the university in an effort to extinguish tires set on fire earlier by student protesters.Some students accused police of firing shotguns loaded with birdshot to disperse them, asserting that several students had been injured in the melee.Anadolu Agency, however, could not immediately verify the claims.The clashes came a day after police besieged Al-Azhar University’s student dormitory to prevent dormitory students from joining protests on campus.Students had pelted police with stones from inside the dormitory while police had responded by firing teargas.Since its new academic year began in October, Al-Azhar University has been at the epicenter of student protests against Morsi’s July 3 ouster by the military.last_img read more

Amazon expected to announce today HQ2 to be split between New York

RICHMOND, Va. — Amazon will split its second headquarters between Long Island City in New York and Crystal City in northern Virginia, according to a person familiar with the plans.The online retailer is expected to make an official announcement later Tuesday. The person was not authorized to speak publicly ahead of that announcement and spoke on condition of anonymity.The decision ends an intense competition between North American cities to win Amazon and its promise of 50,000 new jobs. Some locations tried to stand out with stunts, but Amazon made clear that it really wanted incentives, like tax breaks and grants. The company received 238 proposals before narrowing the list to 20 in January.‘They’ve duped all of us’: Amazon’s multiple HQ2s move it closer to its destiny as the everything companyAmazon plans to split HQ2 between two cities, sources say — and neither of them are TorontoSorry Toronto: For Amazon HQ2 watchers, it’s Northern Virginia that checks the most boxesAmazon had stipulated that it wanted to be near a metropolitan area with more than a million people; be within 45 minutes of an international airport; have direct access to mass transit; and have room to expand. It also wanted to able to attract top technical talent and be able to expand the headquarters to as much as 8 million square feet in the next decade.Set within eyeshot of the nation’s capital, Crystal City is a thicket of 1980s-era office towers trying to plug into new economic energy after thousands of federal jobs moved elsewhere.Rapidly growing Long Island City, in the borough of Queens, is an old manufacturing area already being reinvented as a hub for 21st-century industry, creativity and urbane living.In setting off the flurry of interest, Amazon said it could spend more than $5 billion to build its second headquarters over the next 17 years. The two locations combined would be about the same size as the company’s current home in Seattle, which has 33 buildings, 23 restaurants and houses 40,000 employees. The company isn’t leaving Seattle, and Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has said the new headquarters will be “a full equal” to its current home.The extra space will help the rapidly growing company. Launched in 1995 as a site that mostly sells books, Amazon now produces movies, makes voice-activated Echo devices, runs the Whole Foods grocery chain, offers online services to businesses and designs its own brands of furniture, clothing and diapers. Its ambitions are wide: It launched a company to lower health care costs for its employees and Amazon’s corporate partners in the venture, JPMorgan Chase and Berkshire Hathaway.Amazon’s employee total has ballooned to more than 600,000 worldwide, and that’s expected to increase as it builds more warehouses across the country to keep up with online orders. The company recently announced that it would pay all its workers at least $15 an hour, but the employees at its second headquarters will be paid a lot more — Amazon says they’ll make an average of more than $100,000 a year.——Pisani reported from New York. read more

Fed likely to cut rates a 2nd time as economic threats loom

WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve looks poised to cut interest rates for a second time Wednesday to help extend the economic expansion in the face of global weakness, President Donald Trump’s trade war with China and geopolitical risks such as the attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities.The modest rate cut the Fed announced in July — its first in more than a decade — left its benchmark short-term rate in a range of 2% to 2.25%. It also raised expectations that it would follow with up to three additional quarter-point rate cuts this year.Most economists have since scaled back their forecasts for further rate cuts this year to one or two beginning Wednesday. A resumption of trade talks and a less antagonistic tone between Washington and Beijing have supported that view.So has a belief that oil prices will remain elevated, that inflation might finally be reaching the Fed’s target level and that the U.S. economy remains sturdy.Yet no one, perhaps not even the Fed, is sure of how interest rate policy will unfold in coming months. Too many uncertainties exist, notably the outcome of the trade war.Trump has meanwhile kept up a stream of public attacks on the central bank’s policymaking, including referring to Powell as an “enemy” and the Fed’s policymakers as “boneheads.” Despite a still-solid job market and brisk spending by consumers, the president has insisted that the Fed slash its benchmark rate aggressively — even to below zero, as the European Central Bank has done — in part to weaken the U.S. dollar and make American exports more competitive.No one expects the Fed to go anywhere near that far. Chairman Jerome Powell has said that the policymakers remain focused on sustaining the expansion and keeping prices stable without regard to any outside pressures.At a news conference Powell will hold Wednesday, he will likely be asked about the risks facing the economy, including the attacks on Saudi oil production facilities, which sent oil prices surging and could raise inflation expectations.The Fed is also monitoring the global slowdown, especially in Europe, and Britain’s effort to leave the European Union. A disruptive Brexit could destabilize not just Europe but the U.S. economy, tooU.S. inflation, which has long been dormant, has begun to show signs that it is reaching the Fed’s 2 per cent target and might remain there. If the Fed’s policymakers conclude that inflation will sustain a faster pace, it might give them pause about cutting rates much further.The most serious threat to the expansion is widely seen as Trump’s trade war. The increased import taxes he has imposed on goods from China and Europe — and the counter-tariffs other nations have applied to U.S. exports — have hurt many American companies and paralyzed their plans for investment and expansion.In recent days, the Trump administration and Beijing have acted to de-escalate tensions before a new round of trade talks planned for October in Washington. Yet most analysts foresee no significant agreement emerging this fall in the conflict, which is fundamentally over Beijing’s aggressive drive to supplant America’s technological dominance.Balanced against a possible truce in the trade war are events that could undercut the economy, from a strike at General Motors to the attack that has temporarily reduced Saudi Arabia’s oil production. The Trump administration says Iran is behind the attack, raising already high U.S.-Iran tensions.So far, most economists say the temporary loss of Saudi production won’t end up hurting the U.S. economy, primarily because there remains plenty of global supply.“Higher oil prices are not the big economic deal that they have been in decades past,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics.On Wednesday, in addition to announcing its decision on rates, the Fed’s policymakers will update their forecasts for economic growth, unemployment, inflation and interest rates over the next three years before Powell’s news conference.The case for a rate cut is by no means overwhelming. The job market is essentially healthy, and wages are rising. Last week, the government reported that retail sales rose in August. An index of consumer sentiment produced by the University of Michigan has rebounded.Still, the course of the trade war, along with other unknowns like the outcome of Brexit, will likely be the biggest factor in the Fed’s decision-making.“They have to react to policies that can change with the speed of a tweet,” said Diane Swonk, chief economist at accounting firm Grant Thornton.Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press read more

Many Afghans returning home with next to nothing top UN refugee official

“Many Afghans are returning home with next to nothing,” said Mr. Lubbers, who is currently in New York for meetings at UN Headquarters. “Donors must ensure that the massive repatriation under way is sustainable for the long-term. That means that rehabilitation and development aid must reach rural towns and villages immediately.”Since the UN refugee agency, known by its acronym UNHCR, began helping Afghans to return home nine weeks ago, more than 500,000 refugees have already been repatriated from Pakistan, Iran, and Central Asian states and more than 150,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) have gone back to their villages. Those totals amount to more than 650,000 returnees, or over 54 per cent of the refugee agency’s goal for the year.In addition to spending $23 million to buy beams and other shelter materials for those who need to rebuild their homes, UNHCR said it was also funding various projects throughout Afghanistan to provide protection and assist the reintegration of 1.2 million planned returning refugees and IDPs this year, as well as to assist some 3 million Afghan refugees in neighbouring countries. read more

Fed keeps rate at record low but will consider an increase at

Fed keeps rate at record low but will consider an increase at its next meeting in December WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve is keeping its key short-term interest rate at a record low in light of a weak global economy, slower U.S. hiring and subpar inflation. But it signalled the possibility of a rate hike in December.A statement the Fed issued Wednesday said it would monitor job growth and inflation to determine “whether it will be appropriate to raise the target range” for its benchmark rate at its next meeting.It marked the first time in seven years of record-low rates that the central bank has explicitly raised the possibility that it could raise its key rate from near zero at its next meeting.In a further sign that a hike could occur in December, the Fed’s policymakers sounded less gloomy about international economic pressures. They removed a sentence from their September statement that had warned of global weakness stemming from a sharper-than-expected slowdown in China.“The Fed sent its clearest signal yet that, pending decent data, it has the December meeting in its sights for the first rate hike,” said Michael Feroli, an economist at JPMorgan Chase and a former Fed staffer.Stocks initially gave up some of their early gains after the Fed’s announcement but then surged at the end of trading. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up nearly 200 points, or more than 1 per cent.Bond yields rose as traders anticipated higher U.S. rates. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.10 per cent from 2.04 per cent late Tuesday.Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, said he expects a December rate increase if the job reports for October and November improve over September, when hiring slowed.“Some combination of payrolls, unemployment and wages signalling continued improvement will be enough,” Shepherdson wrote in a note to clients.Still, the Fed noted that the economy is expanding only modestly. And in a nod to recent weaker data, the policymakers expressed some concern about the pace of hiring.While many Fed officials have signalled a desire to raise rates before year’s end, some tepid economic reports in recent weeks had led some analysts to predict no hike until 2016.The Fed’s statement Wednesday was approved on a 9-1 vote, with Jeffrey Lacker, president of the Fed’s Richmond regional bank, dissenting. As he had in September, Lacker favoured a quarter-point rate increase.The Fed has kept the target for its benchmark funds rate at a record low in a range of zero to 0.25 per cent since December 2008. After the September meeting, Yellen noted that 13 of 17 Fed officials expected the first rate hike to occur this year. But some economic reports since then have been lacklustre, including the slowdown in job growth last month.Some of the U.S. weakness has occurred because of a global slump, led by China, that’s inflicted wide-ranging consequences. U.S. job growth has flagged. Wages and inflation are subpar. Investors are nervous. And manufacturing is being hurt by a stronger dollar, which has made U.S. goods pricier overseas.On the other hand, the Fed said in its statement Wednesday that consumer spending and business investment have been rising “at solid rates” and that the housing market has improved further.The Fed cut its benchmark rate to near zero during the Great Recession to encourage borrowing and spending to boost a weak economy. Since then, hiring has significantly strengthened, and unemployment has fallen to a seven-year low of 5.1 per cent.But the Fed is still missing its target of achieving annual price increases of 2 per cent, a level it views as optimal for a healthy economy.At the start of the year, a rate hike was expected by June. A harsh winter, though, slowed growth. And then in August, China announced a surprise devaluation of its currency. Its action rocked markets and escalated fears that the world’s second-largest economy was weaker than thought and could derail growth in the United States.Uncertainty was too high, Fed officials decided, for a rate hike in September.Since then, the outlook has dimmed further, with lower job gains and weak retail sales and factory output. Also, inflation has fallen further from the 2 per cent target because of falling energy prices and a stronger dollar, which lowers the cost of imports.This week’s Fed meeting followed decisions by other major central banks — from Europe to China and Japan — to pursue their own low-rate policies. Against that backdrop, a Fed rate hike would boost the dollar’s value and could squeeze U.S. exporters of farm products and factory goods by making them costlier overseas.Congress may help if a budget deal announced this week wins congressional approval. That could avert a government shutdown and raise the government’s borrowing limit — two threats that concern Fed policymakers.___AP Economics Writer Paul Wiseman contributed to this report. by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Oct 28, 2015 12:03 pm MDT Last Updated Oct 28, 2015 at 6:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Woman who died in hospital was unattended for 7 hours before her

first_imgA man received €68,000 backdated from the Department of Social Protection after he was not informed that he could apply for a survivor’s pension following the death of his wife. The Ombudsman found that the Department knew that his wife had died because he had changed the name of the child benefit claimant a year after he death, but had not informed him of his pension entitlement. The Department initially only backdated the money to 2006, despite the fact that his wife died in 1998, but this was overturned upon investigation.A woman who was incorrectly diagnosed with a serious heart condition called Long QT syndrome which can lead to sudden death was refused a second opinion over her diagnosis and ended up paying €1,000 for a private consultation. The HSE apologised for not allowing her a second opinion and refunded her the costs after an investigation. The second opinion confirmed that the woman did not have the condition.A man who was told that he would still receive social welfare payments if his family moved to Guernsey – where his wife had been offered a job – was given an ex-gratia payment of €1,000 by the Department of Social Protection and an apology after he discovered that he could not, in fact, receive social welfare payments as Guernsey is outside of the European Economic AreaO’Reilly also pointed to SUSI, the third-level grants body, which has been the source of a number of complaints to her office this year over long delays for students.“A lot of hardship has been caused to a lot of students” by SUSI,” said O’Reilly.Reflecting on her ten years as Ombudsman ahead of her final day tomorrow before she leaves for the EU Ombudsman position, O’Reilly said that one of the strengths of the office has been in challenging groupthink among public bodies.She said that financial constraints faced by public bodies due to the Government’s chosen path of austerity and cuts “is not an excuse for poor service, for inequitable treatment, for denial of rights”.She also singled out the Department of Health as being particularly difficult to deal with, noting that it remained particularly suspicious of the office of Ombudsman and often seeking legal advice instead of engaging with complaints.“In a properly functioning system, we’d be able to talk like grown-ups,” she said.Ombudsman: Our treatment of asylum seekers is unacceptable >Read: Boy who would have “been in a wheelchair until he’s dead” to have costs paid by HSE > Read: Want to be the next Ombudsman? Search to replace Emily O’Reilly begins > A WOMAN WHO died in a Limerick hospital was not seen by a nurse or a doctor for 7 hours on the day of her death, even though she rang her son to tell him that she was dying.Ombudsman Emily O’Reilly, who investigated the case, found that problems with the hospital’s record-keeping meant that the woman’s family were not with her when she died.The woman had phoned her son at noon on the day she died, asking him to come to the Mid-Western Regional Hospital in Dooradoyle where she was being treated. He arrived at 1.30pm, but was not briefed by medical staff about the seriousness of her condition until around 5.45pm.His mother died at 11.30pm that night. The delay in telling the man how ill his mother was meant that no-one else from her family was able to travel to the hospital in time to be with her before she died.The Ombudsman began an investigation in response to a complaint from the man, who said that the hospital was unable to provide evidence that a doctor or nurse had seen his mother between 9am and 5.45pm on the day of her death, meaning that the family were not able to be informed about her condition.After an investigation, the Ombudsman found several deficiencies with how the hospital kept patient records – especially because medical notes had no time stamp on them – meaning the Mid-Western Regional Hospital could not confirm if the woman was seen by staff on the day in question.After reconciling the nursing notes with the medical staff notes from the date, the Ombudsman noted that “on the balance of probability, the patient was not seen by the medical team in the period 10am to 4.30pm on the day she died”.“You can imagine how distressing this was for the family,” O’Reilly said today.The hospital has since introduced a policy on contacting the next of kin when a patient’s condition deteriorates after the incident. The Ombudsman also asked the hospital to consider whether an apology was warranted to the family and, following the request, the Mid-Western Regional Hospital apologised for the hurt and distress caused to the family.The case was one of a number highlighted by the  Ombudsman Emily O’Reilly in her final annual report today on complaints made about public bodies.ComplaintsThe Ombudsman received 3,412 complaints in total from the public this year – a small drop from the record number of complaints received in 2010 (3,727) but still higher than the ten-year average of 2,774.The public bodies which received the most complaints were the Department of Social Protection and the HSE, although O’Reilly pointed out that both bodies deal with huge numbers of people on a daily basis.Some of the other significant cases which were resolved last year included:last_img read more

Drug experts slam reports with misleading statistics on legal high deaths

first_imgRECENT REPORTS IN the UK has been criticised by drug experts for presenting “misleading statistics” on deaths linked to legal highs in 2012.The report from the National Programme on Substance Abuse Deaths highlighted a considerable increase in deaths in Britain connected to the synthetic drugs from ten in 2009 to 68 in 2012.In a letter written to scientific journal The Lancet from Dr Leslie King and Professor David Nutt from the Scientific Committee on Drugs, the experts said many of the deaths recorded in the report and widely attributed in the media to legal highs were in fact attributable to substances that were already illegal in the UK.This includes the drug p-methoxyamphetamine (PMA) which has been a controlled drug in the UK since 1977.Further examples include deaths attributed to khat or anabolic steroids, which are not new or classed as psychocative. The misuse of medicinal products such as phenazepam was also misrepresented as deaths from new psychoactive substances, they said.Similar ‘misleading’ definitions of new psychoactive substances were used in the Office for National Statistics’ 2012 report on deaths related to drug poisoning in England and Wales, say the authors, with misuse of gammahydroxybutrate (GHB) accounting for 13 deaths even though this has been a controlled drug since 2003.“There is…no simple answer to how many deaths were associated, let alone caused, by new psychoactive substances or even ‘legal highs’ in any given period,” write the authors. “If we are to develop a sensible drugs policy, such failings of data collection and presentation need to be rectified immediately.”Read: Britain’s drug policies are not working, say MPs>Read: ‘Designer drugs’ being sold as ‘bath salts’ and ‘spice’ causing concern>last_img read more

Windows 8 DVD posted for sale on eBay

first_imgIt’s more or less a given that when Microsoft is working on a new piece of software that someone, somewhere is going to let it leak beyond the NDA-protected borders and put that software in the hands of underground enthusiasts. Typically those files spread via private FTP servers and then later leak a second time to public bittorrent trackers like The Pirate Bay. That’s precisely what happened earlier this year with several pre-release Windows 8 DVD images, which lead to loads of interesting discoveries about its features and functionality prior to Microsoft’s official video footage of the tiled, Metro start page at the D9 conference.Not everyone who has access to unreleased Windows 8 downloads is in it purely for the excitement of shouting “first!” it seems. No, someone has decided to try turning a quick profit using the Windows 8 Milestone 3 .ISO and posted an auction on eBay. While the auction has since been taken down — either as the result of Microsoft picking up the phone or someone with eBay finally coming to his or her senses — the selling price was a cool $1,500.Tom Warren of WinRumors states that the seller was purportedly based in Canada, though I assure the Geek.com faithful that 1) it wasn’t me and 2) Canadians are far too polite and friendly to pull something so underhanded. Unscrupulous eBay sellers claim to be from wherever suits their nefarious purposes best, after all.While the temptation to get your paws on early builds might be strong, keep in mind that Microsoft is likely to release an official Windows 8 beta at its BUILD conference later this year. It’s best to play it safe and wait for the genuine article — there’s always the possibility that cybercriminals may have planted something nasty in leaked builds.More at WinRumorslast_img read more

Google CEO Larry Page suffering from vocal cord paralysis

first_imgIf you’ve ever listened to Google CEO Larry Page speak, you can’t help but notice his voice sounds a little unusual. There is a very good reason for that, and it’s one Page has decided to come out and explain due to a recent illness that has made it worse.Larry Page is suffering from vocal cord paralysis. It first started when he was just 14 years old and suffered from a bad cold. Everyone’s voice can sound different when they are ill, but once fully recovered Page’s voice didn’t recover as expected and remained what he describes as “weaker.” Tests carried out by a doctor confirmed he had left vocal cord paralysis. That means the cord still moves, but not as you’d expect.It was unclear at the time if there was some relationship between the bad cold and the paralysis occurring. It could have just been coincidence and there was no confirmation of the cause from Page’s doctors.This all happened 25 years ago, but last year Page’s voice got worse again, and for exactly the same reason. He got a bad cold again, his voice was affected, and it never recovered. But this time it was his right vocal cord that had been paralyzed. This has resulted in his voice becoming much softer, and accounts for why we haven’t seen him doing much work in front of a camera or involving lots of talking lately.It turns out vocal cord paralysis or paresis is very rare and there isn’t much in the way of information or treatments to improve the condition. So Larry Page has decided to take action and is funding a research program headed up by Dr. Steven Zeitels from the Harvard Medical School. It is hoped this research will not only increase our understanding of paresis, but also lead to new treatments for those who suffer with it.last_img read more

ASA Applauds Historic US China Trade Agreement

first_imgA Major Step toward Increased Market Access for U.S. Soybean ProducersThe American Soybean Association (ASA) is extremely pleased that the United States and the People’s Republic of China have successfully completed bilateral talks on China’s accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO). Today’s announcement by the United States Trade Representative (USTR) is welcome news for U.S. soybean producers. According to U.S. government sources, the ongoing WTO accession negotiations include assurances that will formalize access to the Chinese market—the largest growth market for soy in the 21st century—and includes commitments to expand access over the next few years.ASA President Marc Curtis, a soybean, corn, rice, wheat and milo producer from Leland, Miss., said, “ASA has been working for many years to develop the Chinese market for U.S. soybeans and soybean products. This agreement is very important to U.S. soybean producers because it paves the way for expanded access to the Chinese market, our most important growth market of the future.”The China market has been a priority for U.S. soybean producers since 1982 when ASA opened an office in Beijing. China continues to be a long-term investment for funding from the soybean producer checkoff and USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service, through which ASA promotes U.S. soybean and product exports.Based on the WTO Accession Terms for Agriculture announced earlier this year, there will be no tariff rate quota (TRQ) for soybeans, and the duty is bound at the current applied level of three percent. That agreement stated that soybean oil will be subject to a nine percent duty, and the TRQ quantity will be based on average 1995-97 calendar year imports calculated on the basis of data from Oil World, an international authority on oilseeds supply and demand. Soybean oil also will be designated a “most-favored-oil” –meaning that any permanent or temporary duty reduction provided to other oils also will be extended to soy oil.Beginning Jan. 1, 2000, the import level of soybean oil will be 1.719 million tons, growing to 3.261 million tons by Jan. 1, 2005. The TRQ for soybean oil will be eliminated as of Jan. 1, 2006. Private sector share of trade will be increased from 50 percent to 100 percent by Jan. 1, 2006. Unused state trading shares will be reallocated to the private sector. Today’s USTR announcement confirmed that state trading for soy oil will be phased out altogether.For soybean meal, ASA understands that China has agreed to bind the current applied tariff of five percent and to not apply any quantitative restrictions.In total, China in 1998 was almost an $850 million market for U.S. soybean growers and the soy industry. The value of U.S. soybean exports to China has increased from zero in 1995 to more than $389 million in 1998. China became the largest buyer of U.S. soybean oil in 1995, and imported $296 million worth of U.S. soybean oil in 1998. The value of China’s U.S. soybean meal imports has grown from $29 million in 1994 to $161 million in 1998, making China the second largest buyer of U.S. soybean meal.”ASA appreciates the efforts of Ambassador Barshefsky and her team who have worked diligently to see this agreement succeed,” Curtis said. “ASA also thanks the Chinese negotiators for their willingness to make reforms that will benefit both of our countries.”ASA will urge Congress to approve permanent Normal Trade Relations status for China when China joins the WTO.last_img read more

Microsoft to make its Xbox Game Pass available for PCs now too

first_img Tags Review • Microsoft Xbox One S review: The Xbox One S is here, just three years too late $259 Preview • 9 reasons why the Xbox One S is better than the original 0 Microsoft Xbox One S Microsoft’s Xbox service is coming to PC. Kinda. Sarah Tew/CNET If you like the Xbox but prefer to game on a PC, Microsoft has a new service for you.It’s called Xbox Game Pass for PC and, just as it sounds, Microsoft’s offering gamers who don’t play on an Xbox access to a library of 100 games for playing on a computer. “We designed a service specifically for the needs of PC gamers and PC game developers,” Microsoft’s Xbox head Phil Spencer said in a blog post announcing the new service. Subscribers to the service will also get discounts on games and digital add-ons, Microsoft said. The company declined to say how much the new service will cost, nor when it will be made available. Instead, Microsoft said it will reveal more details at its Xbox press conference on Monday, June 9 at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles.The move is the latest from Microsoft to shift its arsenal of Xbox offerings over the past couple months as new competitors like Google’s Stadia prepare to launch later this year. Earlier this month, the company released a new cheaper console, the $249 Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, which relies solely on digital downloads rather than using a disc drive. In April, the company also said it would combine its Xbox Game Pass for console players, and its Xbox Live gaming social network into a new $14.99 monthly service called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Zika Biologists develops possible mosquitorepellent clothes detergent

first_imgResearchers at the Grupo Avance laboratory in Chile have developed a substance which may be capable of repelling the Aedes aegypti mosquito and interrupting its reproductive cycle, helping to reduce the transmission of the Zika virus and dengue fever. According to reports, biochemist Mario Reyes created a compound which he says could be added to detergent for washing clothes, and this way would protect individuals from being bitten by the mosquito.Reyes said of his creation that the compound was not planned, but came about by joining elements used in other experiments at the Grupo Avance laboratories in the north of Santiago. These elements in the mix include graphene, a substance which prevents the mosquito from passing through a substance, copper powder, an anti-bacterial, and lactone, a natural non-toxic insecticide. By adding this special mix to detergent in a simple clothes wash, an individual could be protected from the mosquito for up to a day.It came from the idea of looking for an alternative which could be used, but not as an ordinary, common repellant. Multiple applications are required and with these multiple applications we can see adverse reactions on users. Also, the person who forgets to apply it then coverage is immediately lowered. With this its like putting on a halo because it emits this components, specifically lactone, which allows for stability but does not destroy clothes of daily use, said medical toxicologist, Laura Borgel.In order to lay its eggs, the female mosquito needs the blood of a mammal. If the number of mosquito bites is significantly reduced, therefore, the mosquito population could be prevented from reproducing. Researchers believe if this biological barrier was used on a wide scale, it could significantly stem the proliferation of the mosquito, responsible for carrying chikungunya, dengue and Zika, which the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on February 1 had caused an international health emergency.The substance must undergo further testing before being approved for public use but researchers say it could be ready for the market immediately.last_img read more

IGI to get its own charkha

first_imgAir travellers are in for a surprise as Khadi & Village Industries Commission (KVIC) has decided to install World’s Largest Charkha at Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport. Dimensions of the Charkha are nine metres (27ft’) in length and five metre (15 ft’) in height.VK Saxena, chairman, KVIC was pursuing this from the company GMR, who have the statutory right on Terminal-3 for the allotment of the land and space in and around T-3. KVIC feels that the Charkha is the symbol of independence of the country and 2016 being the centenary year of the arrival of Mahatma Gandhi from South Africa, it has different significances for Khadi. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Saxena  added that the display of this world’s largest charkha at national Capital’s ‘busiest airport’ will inculcate the feeling of Indianness and Swadeshi amongst the domestic and international travelers.In a meeting held on January 13 between VK Saxena, chairman, KVIC  and I Prabhakar Rao, CEO, GMR; the company agreed to allot this space for putting up large wooden charkha at IGI Airport, Terminal-3 at departure forecourt between Gate No. 4 and 5. KVIC will install the Charkha in one month’s time, which will be viewed by approximately 1,50,000 passengers every day at T-3.last_img read more

State to set up Fire and Emergency Services Welfare Board for employees

first_imgKolkata: The state government has decided to set up West Bengal Fire and Emergency Services Welfare Board.The board will be recommending work that needs to be carried out to put forth better facilities for the employees of the West Bengal Fire and Emergency Services department. There is a welfare board for the police as well and now there will be a welfare board for the employees of the West Bengal Fire and Emergency Services department. The state Fire minister, Firhad Hakim, announced the decision of the state government with regard to the setting up of the welfare board after the cabinet meeting at Nabanna on Friday. He said: “Fire fighters work day and night and most importantly they risk their lives to save others. Hence, in a bid to ensure a better living for them the state government has decided to approve the setting up of the welfare board.” Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeHe further said the welfare board will be recommending what can be done for better living of the employees of the department and subsequently, the department will be taking the next course of action. Besides the central level welfare board, there will be separate boards for districts. Director General of Fire Services will be the chairman of the central level board with maintenance superintendents, station officers, chief mobilisation officers, fire operators and drivers of fire tenders will be the members of the board. It may be mentioned that the state government has taken a series of steps in the past seven years to improve the infrastructure to ensure better fire fighting. Since pre-independence to 2011 as many as 100 fire stations had come up in the state and in the past seven years, 41 fire stations have come up in Bengal and around 20 are under construction. Moreover, the process of setting up another 41 is also going on.last_img read more

Station desktop workstation for Google Apps Twitter hundreds more

first_imgStation: desktop workstation for Google Apps, Twitter, hundreds more by Martin Brinkmann on December 14, 2017 in Software – 6 commentsStation is a free desktop program for Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X devices (Linux coming) that can best be described as a desktop workstation for web apps.The application integrates hundreds of web services (apps) that you can all run from within the interface. While you are asked to get started by adding a Google Work account, you may then later on add apps from more than a dozen categories that include admin & back-office, marketing and analytics, and user support & survey.You can bundle all your online activity in Station. Add Gmail, Twitter, and Facebook Messenger for social media and communication, Salesforce and LinkedIn, or Trello and Zendesk to Station with just a couple of clicks.StationIt appears that you need access to a Google Apps account to use Station. This is the only requirement however, and once you have linked your Google Account to Station, you can start adding other applications.Station lists all apps you use on a small sidebar, and you can switch between them easily.Before you start using the software, you may want to know more about the business model and resource usage of the application. According to the startup behind Station, Station will remain free as a regular version. The company plans to create a version for Teams, and this one will generate revenue for the company.Station is quite large, at 130 Megabytes, and it is certainly not the lightest application when it comes to resource usage. It idled at around 120 Megabytes of RAM on a 64-bit Windows test system with only three Google Apps added to it.The developers note however that they have added a resource saving feature to Station which will iddle applications that are not used for some time to reduce the impact of it.Station supports multiple accounts for a single service. That’s handy if you manage multiple accounts, e.g. multiple Twitter accounts as you may add them all to the application.The adding of apps to Station works pretty much as you’d expect it to. Select one of the applications with a click on the plus icon when you hover over it using the application browser or search.The next step depends on the application in question. WhatsApp for instance displays the QR code that you need to scan with the WhatsApp application on a smartphone to link the account to Station.Once done, you get access to all your WhatsApp contacts and conversations, and can chat with any contact or group using the interface.The switch from one application to another is instant if the application is not idle. It takes a second or so if the application is idle however.Closing WordsStation bundles web services in a single interface. That’s excellent for a number of professions. As a webmaster, it allows you to add messaging, social medial, analytics, revenue generation and support apps in a single interface for instance.It can be used for accounting and sales, project management, and many other activities that require access to multiple web services on a regular basis.Summary12345 Author Ratingno rating based on 0 votes Software Name StationOperating System WindowsSoftware Category ProductivityLanding Page https://getstation.com Advertisementlast_img read more

A team of US scientists has made a discovery tha

first_img A team of U.S. scientists has made a discovery that could lead to the development of bioenergy and food crops that can withstand harsh growing conditions, website ScienceDaily reports.Additionally, the finding could aid the development of crops with the ability to resist pathogens and pests, require less chemical fertilizer and produce larger and more plentiful plants per acre, they say.The researchers’ breakthrough was pinpointing the specific plant gene that controls a key symbiotic relationship between plants and soil fungi, and successfully facilitating the symbiosis in a plant that typically resists it.Being able to do so is groundbreaking because when plants and certain fungi that affect their roots – called mycorrhizal fungi – are united, it can have “remarkable” benefits for the plant, the publication explains.The fungi form a sheath around plant roots, and its structure extends far from the plant host, increasing nutrient uptake and even communicating with other plants to “warn” of spreading pathogens and pests.In return, plants feed carbon to the fungus, which encourages its growth.To try to promote this type of relationship, the researchers focused their study on Arabidopsis, a plant that traditionally does not interact with the fungus L. bicolor, and even considers it a threat.They created an engineered version of the plant that expresses a certain protein, called PtLecRLK1, and then introduced the fungus to the plant roots. You might also be interested in Argentina: Northeastern orange, mandarin exports t … July 24 , 2019 The fungus L. bicolor completely enveloped the plant’s root tips, forming a fungal sheath indicative of symbiote formation.”We showed that we can convert a non-host into a host of this symbiont,” ORNL quantitative geneticist Wellington Muchero was quoted as saying.”If we can make Arabidopsis interact with this fungus, then we believe we can make other biofuel crops like switchgrass, or food crops like corn also interact and confer the exact same benefits. It opens up all sorts of opportunities in diverse plant systems. Surprisingly, one gene is all you need.”Another of the team’s molecular geneticists also emphasized the significance this plant gene discovery could have on the future.”If we can understand the molecular mechanism that controls the relationship between plants and beneficial fungi, then we can start using this symbiosis to acquire specific conditions in plants such as resistance to drought, pathogens, improving nitrogen and nutrition uptake and more,” ORNL molecular geneticist Jessy Labbe was quoted as saying.”The resulting plants would grow larger and need less water and fertilizer, for instance.”So far, finding the genetic triggers in a plant that allow the symbiosis to occur has been one of the most challenging topics in the plant field, the publication indicates.The discovery, published in Nature Plants, came after 10 years of research.Read the full story herecenter_img T&G apple harvest underway amid expectations … U.S.: California storms won’t damage avocado crops … AgTech company’s root heating system ‘significantl … last_img read more

first_img RelatedDomestic flights are ‘a cheaper option’A number of regional airlines have launched flights to domestic destinationsBMI, Ryanair topping UK punctuality tablesResults published by FlightOnTime.info have proved BMI, Ryanair and Eastern Airways to be market leaders in flight punctuality.Teeside increases passengers while Tyneside takes on Scandinavian routesThe north-east of England is spearheading the UK’s regional air travel boom with passenger numbers increasing at smaller hubs. Air travel specialists have claimed that flights between UK destinations are expanding rapidly, as the services offered by airlines increased rapidly and compared favourably with expensive rail journeys.Pointing to changes in EU legislation and an expansion in the number of low-cost airlines flying UK routes, the Air Transport Users Council (AUC) said that the increase was huge, and was reflected in airport expansions across the UK.A report from the Civil Aviation Authority published in November 2007 revealed that regional airports in the UK were growing faster than London hubs, suggesting that flights between UK destinations were increasing faster than flights from the capital out to international destinations.James Fremantle, industry affairs manager at AUC, said: “There are more flights now than there were ten years ago. The increase in flights has been massive. Ten years ago you only had BA and http://www.skyscanner.net/airline/airline-bmi-bd.html operating domestic networks but now you have airlines such as http://www.skyscanner.net/airline/airline-flybe-be.html and easyJet that are all doing plenty of domestic flights.”He added that a key factor was the drop in costs for air travel, after the European Union liberalised flight rules and allowed airlines to fly as many routes as they wanted, allowing for wider operations and a cut in prices – while UK rail travel has increased in price.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more
