Talks set to resume with port clerks

first_imgNegotiators for port terminal operators and union clerical workers were set to resume talks Sunday afternoon after a marathon session failed to produce much progress on the most important outstanding issues. Talks broke off about 3:30 a.m. Sunday over a contract that would avert a strike hampering the nation’s two largest seaports. About 750 members of the clerical union at the ports of Los Angeles and Long BeachZZPT voted unanimously Friday night to authorize their leadership to call a strike if a new three-year contract was not crafted before the old one expired, said John Fageaux Jr., president of the Office Clerical Unit, Local 63, of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union. Longshore workers have pledged to honor picket lines at the twin ports, which together rank as the fifth-largest port complex in the world. Fageaux said Sunday that union members would continue to work without a contract while talks were ongoing. But he said the two sides were still “pretty far apart” on the key issues of pension and health benefits, technology and jurisdiction. “Both sides are committed to making some meaningful progress today, so we will continue to work hard in that direction,” Fageaux said. “We’re prepared to work late into the evening and the early morning hours if necessary.” One sticking point is a clause sought by employers that would allow the shifting of some jobs to other U.S. cities and to China. The terminal operators’ lead negotiator countered that job outsourcing is not an issue. “We’ve proposed nothing that would allow that,” said Stephen Berry, who is negotiating for 14 terminals and steamship company agencies. Instead, employers recently made a generous proposal that increases wages and benefits, he said. Los Angeles port spokeswoman Theresa Adams-Lopez said the ports are not part of the talks. “All we can do is have the port police ready to make sure everything goes smoothly,” she said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

‘I don’t feel Arsenal get themselves up for certain games’ – Ian Wright

first_imgIan Wright has questioned whether Arsenal players are taking enough responsibility for their performances on the pitch.The Gunners suffered a humiliating 2-1 defeat at home to Watford on Tuesday night after allowing their opponents to take an early two goal lead.Arsene Wenger’s side have seen their season plagued by starting games slowly and the habit is threatening to end the north London club’s title prospects.And Wright believes the Arsenal squad need to look at themselves and take responsibility for their poor performances.Speaking to the Sun Football Podcast, he said: “That was as bad as a first 45 minutes I’ve seen. It’s inexcusable.“The performances are showing that the team are not accountable.“It’s all about the start and Arsenal have nor started well for so many games now. I’m not expecting Arsenal to start well.“I don’t feel they get themselves up for certain games, there’s not enough accountability. And it’s just exactly what happens every season at this stage.”Wright also singled out Olivier Giroud for particular criticism.The striker was recalled to the squad with the in-form Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck rested, but appeared to signal to the bench that he was injured after just two minutes.Wright said of the Frenchman: “Was he injured or wasn’t he injured?“Two minutes into the game he signalled that he wasn’t right. He knew that his ankle wasn’t quite right.“He started the game and Watford were up for it and maybe he felt like he wasn’t as up for it as he should have been because he signalled to come off.“It was the most pitiful 45 minutes I’ve ever seen from a centre-forward and he was rightly taken off.“I would be absolutely livid with him because it’s all about the start.”Listen to much more on ‘The Sun Football Podcast, sponsored by Sun Bets, with Ian Wright and Shaun Custis’ – available to download on iTunes now The Gunners sit nine points behind league leaders Chelsea 1last_img read more

Agua Dulce Air Park allowed to expand

first_imgAfter more than two years of division between residents of Agua Dulce over the fate of their local airport, the county Board of Supervisors had the final word Tuesday when it voted 4-1 to allow the facility to expand. The board’s vote allows the Agua Dulce Air Park to expand under a decades-old permit, but it also put in place new restrictions. Some residents in the area have complained about noise and airport operations, and county officials had found the airport illegally constructed a swimming pool and undertook other unauthorized activities. But under the board’s vote, the owners will be allowed to add 18 hangars to the present 37, build a 20-room hotel and restaurant and create a 250,000-square-foot area to tie down planes. A few of the speakers said the fate of the airport has divided their community. “Please, so the community can get back to living again and having people talk to each other, please make a decision,” said resident David McCord. Several residents said the airport has been a bad neighbor. “I do not want to see that the airport is given a long-term contract to where they can expand without any form of regulations,” said Agua Dulce Town Council member Peg Spry. “It’s an airport that has no control tower, and as we can see in the past, there have been many things that have happened where there is no control.” (661) 257-5253160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It’s been going on for a long time.” Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, whose district includes Agua Dulce, cast the lone vote against allowing the airport to expand. He suggested a list of additional restrictions on the airport, including a limit of three helicopter flights and landings per day. But although the board approved other restrictions, including a limit on the airport of 30 days of filming per year, it did not take up Antonovich’s list of additional restrictions. The airport also has volunteered to not allow nighttime flights, and to bar jets and aircraft weighing more than 30,000 pounds from using the airport. “Supervisor Antonovich is disappointed that the board chose to reward an operator who has flagrantly and consistently violated the county’s laws and procedures,” said Antonovich aide Paul Novak. “The board’s action regrettably ignores the very real concerns of the residents of Agua Dulce.” But the board also heard from Agua Dulce residents who supported the airport. Many came on a bus to Tuesday’s meeting. last_img read more

3.3 Billion Mobile Phone Subscriptions; 35% of US Tweens Own a Mobile phone

first_imgRelated Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Tags:#mobile#web center_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement richard macmanus A couple of amazing stats have been released about mobile phone use. Firstly industry analyst Informa Telecoms & Media revealed recently that worldwide mobile penetration will hit 50 per cent – or around 3.3 billion subscriptions. Informa estimated that mobile networks covered 90 per cent of the global population by mid-2007. According to the Telecoms Blog, this means that some 40 per cent of the world‚Äôs inhabitants are covered by a network, but not connected – which leaves just 10 per cent with neither coverage nor connection. Tomi T Ahonen noted that this means mobile growth is accelerating, as we were at 2.7 billion subscribers at the end of 2006. In other mobile stats, the Nielsen Company today released the findings of a study on the mobile media and cross media behavior of U.S. “tweens” (ages 8-12). It found that an estimated 35% of tweens own a mobile phone. Fellow RWW author Josh Catone noted that he first got a mobile phone at age 17. I won’t reveal when I got my first mobile phone, but it’s fair to say that when I was a teen mobile phones resembled bricks!According to Nielsen, 5% of tweens access the Internet over their phone each month. While 41% of tween mobile Internet users say they do so while commuting or traveling (to school, for example), mobile content such as the Internet is also a social medium for this audience: 26% of tween mobile Internet users say they access the web while at a friend’s house and 17% say they do so at social events.So we ask again: is the Mobile Web finally set to take off? You betcha! Although if last week’s poll is anything to go by, there is still a long way to go before a majority of people (in the western world at least) use their mobile phones to surf the Web – our poll indicated that over 40% rarely or never use the Mobile Web. That will surely change over the next year or so, but it’s still relatively early in that adoption curve.last_img read more

Enterprise Content Management: Businesses Struggle with SharePoint Installations

first_imgBUDGET AND BUY-IN InhibitorSeptember 2012August 2011 A recent report by Osterman Research reviewed the state of SharePoint projects within companies.  SharePoint and other collaboration tools are increasingly being deployed by companies to manage their documents and content.  While the report specifically focused on SharePoint, to be fair, it is likely that most of the findings are equally applicable to competing collaboration and content management technologies like open source offerings from Alfresco and Nuxeo and other proprietary products like EMC Documentum and IBM FileNet.The Osterman report focused on the roadblocks and issues faced by businesses attempting to roll out SharePoint-based systems.  And when the results of their survey were compared to the results from the previous year, almost across the board, the obstacles and problems were found to have become even more challenging.The problems confronting businesses with their SharePoint installations  include:Reduced resources / Fewer staff.  SharePoint IT staffing levels dropped by one third from the levels of the previous yearDifficulty in auditing. Nearly half say that they would have problems responding to an audit or a request of eDiscovery with their current SharePoint implementations79 percent of business lack governance:  39 percent say that their company has no governance plan and 40 percent say that they have a plan, but it isn’t being followedMichael Osterman, president of Osterman Research, said that “many IT departments are understaffed because enterprises underestimate the operations resources required to manage, secure, patch and back up SharePoint sites, databases, servers and farms.” Lack of skills/training/knowledge of SharePoint with current staff53%40% SharePoint applications are too costly to build or purchase47%27% APPLICATIONScenter_img Budget for SharePoint project52%40% ADMINISTRATION Difficulty in finding qualified SharePoint personnel53%40% CXO or executive level buy-in or sponsorship52%40%last_img read more

PostSecret Shuts Down Paid iPhone App Due To Malicious Content

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Along with Sunday morning’s secrets, PostSecret founder Frank Warren announced that the $2 PostSecret iPhone app is now closed. Warren received complaints from users, Apple and the FBI about bad content on the anonymous art app. He says that users, moderators and his own family were threatened, citing two specific incidents he can’t discuss further. Launching the app now displays only one secret announcing the closing.Whereas submissions to the PostSecret blog are curated by hand, the app was an experiment allowing any iPhone user to generate secrets instantly and anonymously. Warren says that users shared over 2 million secrets, and that “99%” of them “were in the spirit of PostSecret.” The app launched in September, becoming the best-selling app in the U.S. and Canada overnight. It is now gone from the iTunes store, the Android version never arrived, and the PostSecret App website no longer loads. The PostSecret app was a brave thing to try. Even though it was clunky and slow, we praised it for the privacy and anonymity it provided, allowing users to submit secrets without fear. Unfortunately, this anonymity proved too much for volunteer moderators to handle.“The scale of secrets was so large,” Warren says, “that even 1% of bad content was overwhelming for our dedicated team of volunteer moderators who worked 24 hours a day 7 days a week removing content that was not just pornographic but also gruesome and at times threatening.” In my experience, that 1% figure sounds a bit conservative. The chances of seeing something gross were pretty good on any given night.Warren says that he had to remove the app from his own daughter’s phone weeks ago. Bullies and creeps overloaded the app, and Warren and the moderators were unable to find a solution. At one point, the moderator team tried pre-screening 30,000 secrets a day, but they couldn’t stem the tide of unsavory secrets.Warren calls the now-defunct PostSecret app a “good faith experiment,” but it’s also an unfortunate lesson in the necessity of curation. It raised the privacy bar for app developers, but it opened up a Pandora’s Box of backwardness in doing so. The app was rife with penis pics, vicious attacks and other disturbing messages. It was a valiant attempt to allow millions more to share their secrets, but for now, the PostSecret project will go back to its roots as a hand-curated blog.Those who paid for the app can take comfort in the fact that their $1.99 supported an organization with good intentions.Did you use the PostSecret app?

#IDF13 Opens With Small is Big Message

first_imgRenee also discussed the ability to make automobile headlights smart for safer driving, building smart cities and capturing enough information to cost efficiently human genome sequences to address cancer treatment more effectively.It was a motivational kickoff to what has already been an exciting conference. Follow coverage live on twitter with #IDF13.Tomorrow I will recap some of the insights I’m gaining for mobility and business.Chris@chris_p_intel If there was one theme that came though big at #IDF13 in the Brian Krazanich (BK) and Renee James keynote this morning was that size matters. The smaller the device the more personal and scalable the use case bigger the data challenge and the bigger the opportunity to change the world.BK opened with the dramatic innovation that is happening at Intel emphasizing the importance of SOC (System on a Chip) integration – demonstrating how Moore’s Law is enabling this future reduction in size of chips.  After showcasing the latest latest 22nm and 14nm products powering everything from powerful data center infrastructure to 60 new 2 in 1 personal computing devices to Atom based phones to a new architecture called Quark, that is 1/5th  the size and 1/10th the power of Atom to enable the Internet of Things.The message was about the power and opportunity for integration: from technology integration to delivering integrated computing experiences.  As Intel moves to an SOC focused approach to innovation core CPU real estate on today’s chips are taking up less and less of the overall silicon footprint as new capabilities are integrated. This integration is enabling the delivery of advanced system capability to smaller devices that are located virtually everywhere.Renee showed how we can take full advantage of this approach describing an integrated computing solution exhibited in healthcare for wearable technology where a current bedside health monitoring system is being replaced by a wristband and in the future implanted technology on a patient so that we can move patient care out of the hospital, reducing the cost and improving quality of care.last_img read more

Wearables like Apple Watch may disappear soon

first_imgForget ‘wearables’, and even ‘hearables’. The next big thing in mobile devices: ‘disappearables’.Even as the new Apple Watch piques consumer interest in wrist-worn devices, the pace of innovation and the tumbling cost, and size, of components will make wearables smaller – so small, some in the industry say, that no one will see them.Within five years, wearables like the Watch could be overtaken by hearables – devices with tiny chips and sensors that can fit inside your ear. They, in turn, could be superseded by disappearables – technology tucked inside your clothing, or even inside your body.”In five years, when we look back, everything we see (now) will absolutely be classified as toys, as the first very basic steps of getting this right,” says Nikolaj Hviid, the man behind smart earbuds called the Dash.Developed by Munich-based Bragi GmbH, the Dash is a wireless in-ear headphone that looks like a discreet hearing aid. Packed inside is a music player, 4 gigabytes of storage, a microphone to take phone calls – just nod your head to accept – and sensors that monitor your position, heart rate and body temperature.Nick Hunn, a consultant who lays claim to the term ‘hearables’, reckons the Dash is just the start. He predicts smartwatches will dominate wearable sales for the next three years, hearables will then overtake and, by 2020, will account for more than half of a $30 billion wearable device market.This rapid shift is being driven, he says, by a new generation of chipsets using Bluetooth wireless communication and using far less power than their predecessors. Designers now realize “the ear has potential beyond listening to music – it’s an ideal site for measuring a variety of vital signs,” Hunn wrote in a recent report.advertisementEYEBALL POWERA parallel revolution in sensors is making this possible.Kow Ping, whose Hong Kong company Well Being Digital Ltd provides algorithms and reference designs on wearable sensing to companies like Philips, Motorola, Haier and Parrot, says chipmakers have invested heavily in reducing the power consumption and size of sensors.An accelerometer, which measures things like position, motion and orientation, for example, is now 1 square millimeter. “A few years ago,” he says, “it was two or three times as big and two or three times less refined.”When they can harvest energy from the body’s heat or motion they’ll be even smaller, autonomous and ubiquitous.Andrew Sheehy of Generator Research calculates that, for example, the heat in a human eyeball could power a 5 milliwatt transmitter – more than enough, he says, to power a connection from a smart contact lens to a smartphone or other controlling device.And Ping’s company is working with a top Asian university to add sensors to a sports bra which could harvest energy from relative motion. In five years, he says, “there will be people building sensors into every existing wearable device or apparel.”BUTLER FEEDBACKBragi’s Hviid calls these ‘disappearables’. And while medical and fitness top the list of what these devices might measure, he and others are looking beyond that. A dozen sensors in your pants, he suggests, could advise on how to improve your posture or gait when trying to impress a suitor.”It’s more like a butler … they do some basic stuff that you really want, but there are deeper experiences in there,” Hviid says.Sheehy points beyond the personal, as parallel advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence “come together and lead to some remarkable use cases:” a politician’s contact lens, for example, might provide real-time feedback from a sample of voters, allowing for a speech to be tweaked on the fly.A lot of this technology is already here.Google is working with Novartis on a contact lens to measure glucose levels in tears. The healthcare group has also invested in Proteus Digital Health, a biotech start-up which promises edible embedded microchips, the size of a grain of sand, which are powered by stomach juices and transmit data via Bluetooth.”We’re looking at a major technological revolution of a similar magnitude to the mobile revolution,” says Sheehy.”VERY TRICKY”Not everyone agrees that disappearables are necessarily just around the corner. Wearables still need to gain widespread acceptance – remember Google Glass – and the technology still needs to finessed.While Bragi has raised more than $3 million from crowdfunding website Kickstarter and another $10 million from angel investors, Hviid says communication problems between the left and right earbuds have delayed launch of the Dash until September. It was originally due out late last year.advertisementPing’s company has been working since 2006 on wearables, and owns more than a dozen patents, but he says bringing all the technical parts together, understanding the consumer and mastering manufacturing pose a real challenge.”It’s very tricky,” he says.last_img read more

Messi devastated by new defeat in final

first_imgArgentina star player Lionel Messi  has expressed the pain of losing the Copa America final after the football superstar faced criticism in his native Argentina.Messi finally posted on his facebook account late Monday having hidden his devastation at losing another major final since the 4-1 penalty shootout defeat by Chile on Saturday.”There’s nothing more painful in football than losing a final,” Messi said.”But I don’t want to leave it any longer to say thank you to everyone who has always supported us and continued to during the tough moments.”Messi, 28, has now lost one World Cup and two Copa America finals and still has to win a major international event despite his success with Barcelona.Argentina, beaten 1-0 by Germany in last year’s World Cup final, have now not won a major title for 22 years.Messi left the pitch ashen faced after the latest defeat and unconfirmed Spanish media reports said he turned down the player of the tournament trophy. The trophy was withdrawn before the presentation ceremony in Santiago.Messi and the other Argentine stars were criticised by the country’s media for their performance. Members of his family were also abused by Chilean fans at the match, according to Argentinian media.Some observers have warned that Messi could walk away from the national side.”One day this boy is going to get tired and will not want to come to play for the team,” former Argentine international Matias Almeyda, now coach of the Banfield club, told Fox Sports television.advertisement”He’s the best player in the world and he is not treated in the way he deserves,” Almeyda added.Messi had a brilliant season with the all-conquering Barcelona but Almeyda said “it is very difficult (for Argentine players) to repeat for the national team what they do for their clubs.last_img read more

Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja rested for T20Is vs England

first_imgIndia spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been rested for the upcoming T20 international series against England, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced on Monday.The decision has been taken to reduce the workload on India’s first-choice spinners who have been playing cricket non-stop for the past year and a half. Leg-spinner Amit Mishra and off-spinner Parvez Rasool have been added to the squad as replacements.”The All-India Senior Selection committee in consultation with Team India management has decided to rest spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja from the Paytm T20I series against England. Amit Mishra and Parvez Rasool will replace Ashwin and Jadeja, with the first match to be played on January 26th at Kanpur,” the BCCI press release said.Ashwin had an ODI series to forget against England as he picked up just three wickets from as many games. He went wicketless in the first and the final match. Jadeja on the other hand, chipped in with four wickets and provided crucial breakthroughs for India in a high-scoring series where all three matches saw scores both teams score over 300 runs.Ashwin though, was at his terrific best in the preceding Test series against England last year in which he picked up 28 wickets from four games at 30.25 and finished as the highest wicket-taker from either side. Jadeja got 26 wickets in the series at 25.84.The three-match T20I series begins with the first match in Kanpur on January 26. The next two matches will be played in Nagpur and Bangalore on January 29 and February 1 respectively.advertisementlast_img read more

Maternal Health, HIV, and AIDS: Examining Research Through a Programmatic Lens

To view the entire series, click here.Women and girls are increasingly and disproportionately affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic and now comprise over half of those living with HIV. According to recent estimates from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, not only is the proportion of pregnancy-related and maternal deaths attributable to HIV higher than expected, but pregnant women with HIV are eight times more likely to die than women without HIV. The feminized HIV and AIDS epidemic is one factor limiting progress in the reduction of maternal mortality. As the global community discusses bold visions for new targets to reduce maternal mortality, researchers from both the HIV and maternal health communities must come together to share knowledge and build a path to improved women-centered programming.Over the next several weeks, the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) will share a series of guest blog posts from our colleagues who are working in maternal health, HIV, and AIDS. The posts will cover topics such as:An exploration of a particularly groundbreaking approach used in a specific country to integrate and improve maternal health and HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, or careExperiences managing HIV-related comorbidities and obstetric complicationsAnalyses of a persistent barrier to integrating and/or improving quality of maternal health care and HIV/AIDS care for womenCountry responses to the World Health Organization’s new guidelines for prevention of mother-to-child-transmission of HIV and antiretroviral therapy as well as country experiences in implementing these guidelinesExperiences addressing the demand side—or how to facilitate interest on the part of women and their families to demand higher quality maternal health and HIV servicesImplications for policymakers on the measurement of direct and indirect causes of maternal deaths related to HIVIn addition to the blog series, the MHTF will convene the technical meeting Maternal health, HIV, and AIDS: Examining research through a programmatic lens starting on 10 June 2013, in collaboration with USAID and CDC. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss emerging research linking maternal health and HIV, identify research gaps, and consider programmatic implications. While there is a need for significant investment in this issue around the globe, the focus of this particular meeting is Africa.Finally, our Maternal Health, HIV, and AIDS topics page highlights resources, recent publications, videos, and blog posts, along with the organizations working on maternal health, HIV, and AIDS.  The page is a work-in-progress. Please check back frequently for new content. The MHTF is always looking for new resources, research, and news.  We welcome any feedback or resources you have to share on our topics page.Stay tuned to the MHTF for upcoming blog posts about maternal health, HIV, and AIDS as well as daily summaries and a final report from the meeting.

Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Gabriel Jesus thought he had snatched all three points for City in added time, but his effort was ruled out by VAR after Aymeric Laporte had handled the ball in the build-up.Guardiola’s men had 30 shots in total during the match to Tottenham’s six, but the two sides ultimately had to settle for a point apiece in their second fixture of the new Premier League season.Winks, who saw 56 minutes of action at the Etihad, insists that Spurs have proved that they can “compete with the very best” and he is hopeful that the team can remain consistent as the campaign progresses.”I think they (City and Liverpool) should worry about us,” the midfielder told the Evening Standard. “We’ve shown in the last few years we can compete with the best teams in the Premier League and Europe. It’s important we do that on a consistent basis this season and it’s important we go to places like City and Liverpool and get results.”The manager doesn’t allow fear in us. We don’t go into any game beaten mentally. We go into every game knowing we can win and we can outperform them. Our mentality going into every game is to be on the front foot, press and try to win. That’s probably why we came away with a good point.”Winks also confessed that Tottenham’s display against City was “messy” but feels Pochettino got his tactics spot on against an opponent renowned for dominating possession.”They’re an excellent side, they’re champions and you have to respect them but like all sides they have weaknesses and I think we exploited them, especially from the corner,” he added.”We know how good we are. We know we’re a top side but when we come to places like this it’s important to get a result.”At times it was messy, it was difficult but that’s what you have to do, especially at City. You expect City to have a lot of possession, which they did. But it’s important when you come here to weather the storm when you’re under the cosh, to stay in there and I thought we did that fantastically.”Next up for Spurs is a home clash on Sunday against Newcastle, who have kicked off their latest campaign with defeats against Arsenal and Norwich.

Sanchez to Man Utd the worst transfer gamble ever

first_imgIt is amazing to think that it is less than two years since Arsenal fans were busy appealing to Alexis Sanchez to stay at the Emirates Stadium as Arsene Wenger’s star man edged his way towards a move to Manchester City.There were no such pleas among the Manchester United faithful before the Chile international sealed a loan move to Inter on Thursday.Indeed, there can be no understating the disaster that has been his 19-month spell at Old Trafford. Article continues below Editors’ Picks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Are Chelsea this season’s Ajax? Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream The decision by Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward to do everything they could to avoid seeing an already-unstoppable City adding Sanchez to their forward line backfired about as spectacularly as any transfer in modern history.At a time when City are being rightly questioned for the ethical issues behind their rise to dominance, their decision not to break the bank for Sanchez is one which very much lands on the right side of the ledger.United ended up offering the former Udinese and Barcelona man a £390,000 ($477,000) weekly salary and £75,000 ($92,000) starting bonus, which means he has cost the club around £55 million ($67m) since his arrival in January 2018.In return, they got five goals in all competitions, a string of desperately poor performances and a dressing room full of players wondering why the guy contributing the least was getting paid by far the most.It was exactly the sort of scenario Pep Guardiola was keen to avoid having on his hands at City, and which preceded the Premier League champions’ decision to pull out of the race for Sanchez.“Normally we try to be stable with the wages of the players because I think it is good for the team and stability of the club,” Guardiola said shortly after the attacker signed for United.“I’ve never put pressure on a club when they believe it is too much. Immediately, I accept that decision and move forward to find another solution. The stability of the club is the most important thing.”How prophetic that statement has become over time as Sanchez has struggled time and again to have any sort of impact at Old Trafford, all the while raising the salary expectations of every team-mate approaching a new deal and every new arrival entering negotiations.Alexis Sanchez Arsenal Pep Guardiola Manchester CityAlexis Sanchez, Jose Mourinho, Man UtdThe more dry-witted United fans would suggest that the 30-year-old’s most stirring performance at the Theatre of Dreams was on the piano during his introductory video posted on social media, and it would be hard to challenge that assertion.From day one there were queries about exactly what Sanchez would be able to offer United. Many fans quizzed by Goal upon his arrival suggested that if he was to be used as an alternative to Anthony Martial, then his addition was unnecessary in the very least.Nobody, though, could have foreseen just how disastrous his United career would turn out.He leaves with a grand total of three goals in 32 Premier League appearances, and but for a stirring performance in the 2018 FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham at Wembley, it is difficult to pick out any matches in which he truly looked like a good fit for United under either one of Mourinho or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.The Portuguese seemed not to know how to get the best out of him, while the current manager – who ended up handing Sanchez only four league starts – threw the ball squarely into the Chile international’s court as everyone began to wonder how the situation might be improved.“I can’t do anything about Alexis Sanchez,” said Solskjaer in February when asked whether he had a masterplan to kick the player out of his funk. “When he plays, he needs to finds himself because we know there’s a quality player there.”Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Alexis Sanchez Manchester UnitedIt is undeniable that Sanchez has the talent. We have seen it over a period of many years from Italy to Catalunya to north London. But in Manchester he has looked like a shadow of his former self.“It’s been a disaster,” former United captain Gary Neville told Sky Sports of Sanchez’s United career. “I have no idea what’s happened. There must be two of him: the one that played for Arsenal and Barcelona and then the one that’s turned up in Manchester.”While many might wonder whether the British transfer record signing of Angel di Maria in 2014 turned out to be a bigger disappointment, nobody can claim that Sanchez has been any form of success.The very fact that United had long since been resigned to having to subsidise his future wages elsewhere says much about their desperation to get rid of him. As it stands, they will still be paying more than half of Sanchez’s salary while he is at San Siro.What happens at the end of his season-long stay is unclear. What we do know, though, is that Alexis is unlikely to ever return to United.The scintillating performances of his days at the Emirates are nought but a distant memory right now and, while Inter will be hoping that he will prove he can be that player again now that he has been freed from his Old Trafford hell, the last year-and-a-half is a stain which will never be removed from Sanchez’s CV.Neither will it be something United get over quickly. While Sanchez’s exit was a key part of Solskjaer’s plan to rebuild the Reds, it remains a chapter of the club’s recent history which will not be forgotten in a hurry. Not least on the balance sheet.It turns out that Alexis Sanchez and Manchester United was a match made in hell. The only good thing to say about the whole episode is that it is now over.last_img read more

‘It’s our fault’ – Lampard fumes after Sheffield United draw

first_imgChelsea manager Frank Lampard lamented two points thrown away on Saturday after Chelsea were pegged back in a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United. It all started off well at Stamford Bridge as Tammy Abraham scored twice in the first half to give his side a 2-0 lead going into half-time. But Callum Robinson scored for the Blades immediately after half-time, increasing the nerves around the Chelsea home ground.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club?

Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream And the newly-promoted side’s comeback was completed in the 89th minute after Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma got the final touch on Robinson’s cross to hand the Blades a huge point on the road.The result leaves Chelsea with just one win from their opening four Premier League games under Lampard, with the Blues having drawn twice and lost once. Saturday’s game also continued a worrying trend for Chelsea, who have struggled in the second half of several Premier League matches already this season.Manchester United scored three times in the second half on the Premier League’s opening day in a 4-0 win, before Leicester pegged Chelsea back in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge two weekends ago.Lampard acknowledged after Saturday’s game that his side’s second halves need to improve quickly. “It was under control, it is our fault for gifting them a goal in the first minute of the second half. It’s a similar story already,” Lampard told BBC Sport. “The game should have been comfortable and we have dropped two points. We want to win games, the emergence of youth is one thing but winning games is another. When you are 2-0 up at half-time you should win the game.”We had more than enough on the pitch to win that game from 2-0 up. There is no chance that that game should swing like that. We gave them the possibility to hurt us.”Abraham’s play was a bright spot for Chelsea, with the 21-year-old now having scored a brace in back-to-back games. “Tammy Abraham is doing well, his all-round game was great and he needs to continue,” Lampard said of the England striker.Chelsea will return to action after the international break on September 14 when they travel to face Wolves at Molineux.  Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Southgate hails Sterling amid concern over England’s ‘crazy errors’

first_imgGareth Southgate believes Raheem Sterling has been close to “unstoppable” after his dazzling display in England’s entertaining 5-3 win over Kosovo in Euro 2020 qualifying.Sterling scored and set up three others as England came from a goal down at St Mary’s Stadium to preserve their 100 per cent record in Group A on Tuesday.England conceded inside 34 seconds but Sterling restored parity before the Manchester City star teed up Harry Kane and provided the assists for Jadon Sancho’s brace.

Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Sterling’s performance came after he scored and supplied two assists for Kane in England’s 4-0 rout of Bulgaria on Saturday, and manager Southgate heaped praise on the in-form 24-year-old.Lovely touch, @sterling7— England (@England) September 10, 2019″Our attacking play from Raheem, Jadon and Harry was outstanding,” Southgate said. “Raheem’s two performances have been of the highest level. “I think he’s been almost unstoppable, his awareness of where defenders were, his ability to ride challenges, his vision and desire to get in on goal, and unselfish play as well, so I couldn’t speak highly enough of the way he played.”It was a memorable outing for Sancho in Southampton, where the Borussia Dortmund sensation scored his first England goals.”Jadon – you know we were talking about the three on Saturday – Jadon’s performance was at that level as well. He worked really hard for the team without the ball and showed the ability he has to go past people, to be calm in tight areas,” Southgate said.”So, that part of our game was absolutely outstanding. We continued that threat for most of the game.”Looking good for the #ThreeLions!Next up: trips to the Czech Republic and Bulgaria in October— England (@England) September 10, 2019While England made it four wins from four games to move three points clear atop Group A, the Three Lions were far from convincing defensively against Kosovo.Errors saw England concede three goals to the visiting minnows and Southgate added: “It was bizarre. The outstanding features and the poor features are apparent to everybody, so we don’t need to get the video out and go back through it.”Poor individual mistakes, a poor start to the game. I like the way we showed the composure to recover from that initial mistake and our use of the ball throughout the first half was excellent, right the way through the team.”The small period after half-time: ridiculous mistakes, poor decisions, lack of covering back. So, we made the game really uncomfortable for ourselves. There were obviously mistakes that were concerning. Whether it was the intensity of the game, whether it was the pressure, I don’t know. We’ve got to reflect on that but they were such basic errors, really, that you have to learn from. We just made some crazy errors.”last_img read more

If he’s not worth £200m now, I’d be surprised.“He’s the best player playing for England and he’s the first player on the team sheet for Pep Guardiola.“The big question now is where do you put him with the likes of Messi and Ronaldo? I would put him right amongst them. He’s there now.“The only difference, and he can’t do anything about it, is time. They’ve been doing it and are still doing it for 15 years and he’s only just started.“But if he continues in this form he’s showing, people are going to start talking about him being the best player in the world and I think he’s deserved that honour.“If you look at other players who have gone for big money and you look at what they bring to the table, the goals, the assists, the way they conduct themselves off the field – he’s right up there with the very best in the world.“I watched him on Saturday [against Bulgaria] and he was walking around and conserving his energy, exactly like Messi does for Barcelona every week, and then as soon as he sees a scenario developing he is absolutely electric, he comes alive.“His end product and decision-making and productivity he brings to England and Manchester City is so consistent, he’s got to be regarded as one of the best players in the world.”Sterling, after netting for England against Bulgaria and Kosovo, will be back in domestic action on Saturday when reigning Premier League champions City travel to Norwich.

Blow for Man Utd as Pogba and Martial ruled out

So we don’t really know who’s going to be available. There’s maybe Aaron, maybe Jesse and I think maybe that’s it from the ones that pulled out [from national squads], but I can’t promise those two will be available either.”Leicester is always a tough game, as a team, a club wanting to push into the top four, they’ve got good players, a good manager, a proven top manager, Brendan [Rodgers]’s teams always play with football and we’ve got to play well to get the three points.”Pogba won’t be fit, no.

Messi could feature against Inter

first_imgLionel Messi could yet feature in Barcelona’s Champions League clash with Inter on Wednesday, with Ernesto Valverde refusing to rule him out of the contest.Messi has endured a difficult start to the season due to injury problems, suffering a calf strain in August that kept him out for a month, before a hamstring issue struck against Villarreal in September.Early indications seemed to suggest Messi was going to be missing for up to three weeks, but he was back in training on Monday.

So, last year’s game can only help us so much.” #BarçaInter— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) October 1, 2019Antonio Conte’s side have enjoyed a stunning upturn in form since the former Chelsea coach took over, winning six and losing none of their seven matches across all competitions this season.In last season’s Champions League, Barca beat Inter 2-0 in Camp Nou and drew 1-1 in Milan, though Valverde expects an entirely different challenge this time around.”It is a team that has changed many things; players, the coach, they’re playing with a different system, even if there are similar things, such as their intention to push up,” Valverde said.”They have had a spectacular start, they are winning all their matches and we are waiting for a complicated game.”This is another Inter to last year, impacted by the coach, something similar to what we met with Chelsea two seasons ago.

McGinn has made a flying start to life in the Premier League with Aston Villa and has now netted seven times for club and country this season. 5 – John McGinn has scored what is just the fifth hat-trick by a Scotland player this century, and the first since James Forrest against Israel in November last year.

This was the biggest of those eight victories.- Scotland scored double the number of goals in this win over San Marino (six) than they had managed in their first five games under Steve Clarke combined before this (three).- San Marino have conceded 43 goals across their eight 2020 European Championship qualifiers, seven more than in their 10 games in qualifying for the 2016 tournament (36).- John McGinn scored what was just the fifth hat-trick by a Scotland player this century, and the first since James Forrest against Israel in November last year.- McGinn became the first player to score a first-half hat-trick for Scotland since Lawrie Reilly against USA in a friendly in April 1952, 67 years and 166 days ago.- Lawrence Shankland and Stuart Findlay have become the first players to score on their first international starts for Scotland since Ikechi Anya did so against North Macedonia in September 2013.What’s next?Scotland are away to Cyprus and at home to Kazakhstan when the group concludes next month.

Lille is an excellent destination for a train journey in terms of location, which is why we approached NS with this idea.”For Erik ten Hag and his men, this seems to us to be a more efficient and less tiring journey. Because the performance that Ajax has to deliver in Lille is of course paramount.”Not only is the train ride beneficial for the environment, it is also more convenient for Ajax, who will save time by staying grounded.While a flight from Amsterdam to Lille would take around three hours and 20 minutes, the train will take two and a half hours.Ajax are top of their Champions League group after two games, having beaten both Lille and Valencia 3-0, putting them three points ahead of next opponents Chelsea, who they host in the Dutch capital on October 23.The clash in France will be their second-last of the group stage and could be a vital one for last season’s semi-finalists as they look to book their place in the next round.And even NS director Heike Luiten is confident the squad will get there in prime condition to get a good result.”For Ajax’s return journey, we will make room for three points in the luggage rack,” Luiten said.last_img read more

Never Suffer from PostWorkout Soreness Again with the Theragun G3Pro

first_imgPop quiz: What do you do when you’ve got a knot in your back that you can’t reach, your partner is away on business, and you can’t book your usual sport massage for another week? If your answer is A) suffer in pain or B) see a doctor for pills, you are 100 percent wrong and also almost definitely 100 ignorant of the one amazing technology solution to your problem: The Theragun G3PRO.I first saw a percussive therapy machine at Outdoor Retailer a few years ago and was very skeptical of the entire premise. To me, having something vibrate lightly over any sore muscles or particularly troublesome fascia couldn’t possibly compare to a hardcore rumble roller session or a deep-tissue massage. In order to convince me otherwise, the Theragun team me a sample to test out. After having used the Theragun G3PRO on and off in conjunction with my regular foam and rumble rolling routine, I’m prepared to say that my initial belief that this was just another goofy-looking piece of gym equipment that was more gimmick than go-to, was completely wrong.I am a Theragun convert and will be from now until somebody comes up with something better. Theragun G3PRO 1 of 2 Next How It WorksUsing a battery-powered, electric motor, the Theragun G3PRO is a percussive therapy machine that uses a 16mm amplitude massage head that vibrates at 2400 RPMs. With an adjustable arm and two speeds, along with a variety of attachments, anyone looking for relief from muscle soreness or stiffness can find it. The brand claims you can reach over 90 percent of your body just yourself and I certainly can confirm it. I was able to massage several knots out of my back that I normally can’t reach without using a tennis ball and a wall.  The Theragun also comes with a variety of different attachments, from a large soft head to use on larger muscle groups like your quads and hamstrings to small, angular heads that can be used to target specific areas, like knots beneath shoulder blades or deep in your glutes.Overall, the latest from Theragun is a monster muscle massager that any Crossfitter, marathoner, iron-manner, or regular Joe can integrate into their lives to make it just a little bit less painful (and with a fewer pills).A few considerations: Yes, this is an expensive tool. And yes, it’s a little unwieldy (I’m not convinced this would be easy to travel with, though multiple trainers claim that they do). But in general, most things in life that are a worthy investment are going to cost a little extra money, especially when it comes to your health. So go for it. Sign up for that installment plan if you have to – we’re going to go out on a very limber limb in her and say that you’re not going to regret it. $599 from Theragun How to Use a Vibrating Foam Roller Like Tom Brady Editors’ Recommendations center_img Previous How to Choose the Best Organic Mattress for Greener Sleep A Guide to Bodywork: Massage, Acupuncture, Chiropractic, and More How to Build Your Own Home Gym for Under $350 How to Drink Absinthe and Live to Tell the Talelast_img read more

For Sale One Deserted 80Acre Irish Island Complete with Iron Age Ruins

first_imgWhether it’s as a seasonal lighthouse keeper in San Francisco or as a lifelong recluse lost amid a private, country-sized reserve in Patagonia, we all seek somewhere to escape to. Though the world may feel like it’s shrinking, there are still a surprising number of very secluded places to build your dream home left on this planet — some more affordable than you think. One unique private island was newly announced for sale off the coast of Ireland, and it could be yours for less than a modest, two-bedroom home in San Francisco.Ardoilean — “High Island” to Statesiders — is situated in the Atlantic Ocean less than two miles off Ireland’s west coast. On paper, the island offers everything a nature-loving couple could ask for. The 80 acres of rolling grassland include two natural freshwater lakes and jaw-dropping views of the ocean and the coast of Connemara. At its peak, the island rises more than two hundred feet above sea level. Numerous inlets cut into its dramatic rock formations, promising plenty of places to explore, dive, or kayak. This all provides the perfect base for an abundance of bird life including petrels, fulmars, shearwaters, gulls, and an occasional pair of breeding peregrine falcons each spring.But, what’s most interesting — and why the €1,250,000 (USD $1.4 million) price tag is such a steal — is the island’s incredible history. Ancient ruins and artifacts found on the island date to at least 300 B.C., and there are some evidentiary pollen samples (that’s really a thing) that date as far back as 1,000 B.C. The flooring that remains in a church found on the island indicates the likelihood of an early Iron Age settlement sometime between 300 B.C. and 20 A.D. A monastery that once stood there sometime in the seventh century was likely home to around 60 people.From the late 18th century onward, High Island was owned by the Martin Family (one of the great Galway tribes) before being mined for copper, then subsequently changing hands to the Irish poet Robert Murphy for the last half of the 20th century. Today, the only intact remains are the monastery including the church, the altar, and a beehive hut just east of the church itself. The ruins are technically owned by the Irish Department of Environment, Heritage, and Local Government and are not part of the island’s sale. The government was kind enough, however, to install a small modern building with a septic tank and rainwater collection system. So, there’s that.Interested parties can inquire at Spencer Auctioneers.

Have you ever turned to American Idol or Live with Kelly and Ryan wondering how in the world Ryan Seacrest looks the same as he did 20 years ago? I, the author, remember watching American Idol when it first debuted in 2002 and thinking Seacrest looked weirdly similar to my father. Now, 17 years later, my dad has begun to show the hard earned years under his belt while Ryan Seacrest has somehow secured his youth. There are reasons behind this, though, and none of them have anything to do with my dad and everything to do with Seacrest’s secrets on grooming and skincare. First, of course, Ryan Seacrest has been in the celebrity spotlight long enough to know upkeep is almost as important as performance. But, his effective grooming regimen goes far beyond having the helping hand of Hollywood.Not only is Seacrest a proud owner and wearer of his Macy’s mensline, Distinction, he recently launched his very own skincare line, Polished, in tandem with the talents of celebrity dermatologist Dr. Lancer.Polished is a high–quality, science-driven skincare line that was created to cater to the needs of men who want to put the work in and continue looking good even when the years pass. The line features effective and accessible products that focus on cleansing and nourishing the skin, from a daily micro-scrub and dual cleanse and shave cream to an oil-free moisturizer and an anti-aging serum. Seacrest and Dr. Lancer have worked together for over a decade, and due to Seacrest’s anti-aging track record, the two decided it was time to share their skincare successes with people just like you. The process is simple and is composed of the following easy to use products: Polished Daily Micro-Scrub The daily micro-scrub combines a trifecta of exfoliation to get rid dry surface cells. Ivory palm powder, papaya and pineapple enzymes dissolve dirt and grime. A blend of sodium hyaluronate and red seaweed also help to hydrate and promote younger-looking skin.

We can say that their drivers represents welcoming sprites in Japan. Drivers who know about Kyoto well will guide you to special places in Kyoto.Being a driver and being a guide need to have different skills. But Taxi drivers of Yasaka Limousine Service have both skills. But don’t take it wrong. It doesn’t mean that every single taxi driver will be able to drive you around guiding in English. So you don’t need to stop to ask a driver to guide you.Still hard to find drivers who can drive you around and guide you at the same time.There are still not much drivers who can give a guide in English. Ten thousand people registered as a driver at this moment. But Only 100 people of them can speak English. Only ten of them have a certificate of interpreters .You should keep in your mind that you need to reserve at a hotel if you want to have a interpreter driver.Hire a taxi driver who speaks English = the best way to get around Kyotophoto credit: LIN CHIA HUI via photopin ccThere are not much people who can guide you in English as driving around in Kyoto. So if you’ve got a chance to have him/her, you will definitely have memorable and fabulous time with him/her.It is hard to get a license of interpreters since they are required to know geography and history of Japan besides languages. Qualified interpreter drivers who I met not only know about shrines and temples but also can explain about different ways of thinking that people in japan and people from the other countries have and have in depth knowledge about how shrines and temples have connections with Judaism.I’m pretty sure that people from the other countries wonder if Japanese people are religious  or what gods are like for Japanese people. These qualified guide will answer your questions.Now, Most of people started thinking about a price to hire this wonderful guide. It will cost you about from 30 to 70 thousand yen for half a day to 9 hours. If you have a budget for it and want to experience real Kyoto with a licensed guide, its worth to take this tour.You can get to experience things you can not get to know on a guidebook you have in your hand. You will get to see and feel Kyoto more than you expected for sure.last_img read more

Japans Local Flavors from Yasujiro Ozu Films

first_imgA treat for the locals: the crispy coat on the tonkatsuAppearing in films such as “The Flavor of Tea Covered Rice”, this is the “tonkatsu”. A treat for the locals. This dish is made with pork sirloin or fillet coated with flour, egg, and bread crumbs. Ozu favored the tonkatsu very much himself. The “Katsu” in tonkatsu is short for cutlet, which sounds like “Katsu” (to win). This dish often appears on dinner tables before exams or athletic matches in Japan.In the movie, “An Autumn Afternoon”, tonkatsu appears in the scene when the characters are talking about marriage. Despite the romantic talk, additional beer and tonkatsu is ordered to the table. You can see the humorous side here, on how their minds are focused more on food than love.Would you queue up for this? A bowl of piping-hot ramenWithin Ozu’s works, the Japanese favorite, ramen noodles commonly make an appearance. In the movie, “The Flavor of Tea Covered Rice”, you can see lovers on a date, sitting side by side eating ramen.Despite ramen being delicious, ramen is not really suited for dates (*1). It is a very local cuisine. Like the scene with the tonkatsu, this scene also represents how “food over romance” is a daily occurrence.(*1)In Japan people slurp their noodles when eating ramen, soba etc., therefore, it is not thought to be a good food choice for taking a date.Ramen is a popular dish even today. It is no surprise to see a line going out the the doors of popular stores. It must be a dish people would not mind lining up for.Cheap and delicious: The essence of Autumn, saurySaury, is a fish that you can almost say represents Japanese fish dishes. It is eaten frequently in Japanese households. The mst popular way of eating it is with grated daikon radish, or simply grilling it with salt. When writing saury in Japanese, you write it with the characters, “Autumn, Sword, Fish” and is read as “sanma” in Japanese. Like its name, it is a fish that represents the fall season.When Ozu was questioned in regards to the Japanese title of “An Autumn Afternoon” (“The Flavor of Saury” in Japanese), he simply replied with “because saury is cheap and tasty”. Perhaps this work reflects the imagery of the common Japanese lifestyle.The locals’ comfort food: hassle-free ochazuke, or “tea over rice”Ochazuke is a dish where you top rice with your favorite side-dishes and pour hot tea over it. It is a dish frequently eaten as a midnight snack due to its simplicity.In the Ozu film “The Flavor of Tea Over Rice”, this dish appears, just as stated in the title. A couple stands in the kitchen late at night, to make ochazuke and eat it together in the living room. In the movie, there is a scene where the husband says “a married couple tastes like ochazuke”. The relaxed expression of the couple while consuming a bowl of warm ochazuke leaves an impression during the movie.Live long and wide: unagi, the eel Ozu wished uponUnagi eel only briefly appears in the film, “What did the Lady Forget”, but does not make a significant appearance in it. The unagi eel though, was most likely Ozu’s favorite and he has written about it in his journal several times.In Japan, there is a tradition where soba noodles are eaten on New Year’s Eve for a “long and thin life”.But Ozu claimed he wanted to live a “long and wide life” and, so he feasted on unagi eel on New Year’s Eve. A very Ozu-like, unique way of thinking.Expensive meals almost never appear in Yasujiro Ozu’s films. The popular local dishes eaten at home, or out, is what appears frequently.If you begin to crave tonkatsu, ramen, or saury after watching an Ozu film, make a trip out to Japan to savor the authentic taste. Come discover your favorite “local dishes” from Japanese movies or your trip to Japan.last_img read more

Two Northwest Territories ministers survive cabinet expulsion vote

first_imgYELLOWKNIFE – Two cabinet ministers in the Northwest Territories have survived votes on whether they should be expelled from cabinet.Glen Abernethy will keep his job in Health and Social Services and Wally Schumann will remain head of Infrastructure.Abernethy has faced criticism over a scathing report from the federal auditor general over the state of child services in the territory.The audit found little has improved in the last four years and some concerns have grown worse.It concluded that two-thirds of foster homes aren’t subject to a criminal record check before being assigned children.Schumann has taken heat for a decision to cancel a barge shipment that would have resupplied three northern communities, but he blamed unusually heavy and early drifts of sea ice.Some say the real reason was that his department was slow getting organized and was more interested in lucrative contracts with private companies than in serving communities.Under the N.W.T.’s consensus government, cabinet ministers are chosen by members of the legislature and can be removed by them as well.Although the expulsion debate went overtime in the legislature, critics of the ministers couldn’t muster enough votes from MLAs outside of cabinet.Members of cabinet, including Premier Bob McLeod, supported the ministers.last_img read more

OSC should focus on protecting whistleblowers from retaliation SEC

OSC should focus on protecting whistleblowers from retaliation: SEC TORONTO – The head of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission says its Ontario counterpart should focus on protecting corporate whistleblowers from retaliation if it wants its new program aimed at fighting white collar crime to be successful.Mary Jo White says the SEC’s whistleblower program has been a “game changer,” bringing in high-quality tips and helping the regulator successfully prosecute cases.However, White says it’s very difficult for corporate whistleblowers to come forward given the potential repercussions that they face.The Ontario Securities Commission launched its own whistleblower program, modeled partly on the SEC’s, in July.Under the program, the Ontario regulator offers rewards of up to $5 million for tips that lead to successful prosecution of serious securities law violations such as insider trading, accounting tricks and market manipulation.The introduction of the whistleblower program was accompanied by amendments to the province’s securities act that aim to protect employees who report misconduct from retaliation.During a conference hosted by the OSC in Toronto on Wednesday, White was asked what lessons the Ontario securities watchdog could take from the SEC’s experiences south of the border.“One big lesson is it’s not easy to come forward, for a whistleblower,” said White.“Stay very closely in touch with the whistleblowers. It’s not an easy space for them to be in. And really be focused on your powers to deal with retaliation.”Last September, OSC CEO Maureen Jensen said the new program had already garnered more than 30 tips in just the first few months since its launch.Follow @alexposadzki on Twitter. by Alexandra Posadzki, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 2, 2016 2:18 pm MDT Last Updated Nov 2, 2016 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

UN experts urge Israeli lawmakers to halt proposed legislation targeting civil society

The experts expressed grave concern that the legislation would chill the speech of human rights NGOs by subjecting them to harsh penalties for violations and delegitimizing them publicly.The stated aim of the legislation is to increase transparency by requiring NGOs that receive more than half of their funding from foreign government entities to disclose certain information, such as the names of their donors in all publications intended for or made available to the public, or in any written appeal to a public employee or public representative.“The promotion of transparency is indeed desirable and legitimate,” said David Kaye, Special Rapporteur on freedom of expression. “However, the pending legislation has the evident intent of targeting human rights and civil rights organizations, which receive a majority of their funding from foreign government entities, while leaving unaffected other organizations that nonetheless receive a substantial amount of foreign funding from individuals.”The proposed legislation is again before the Knesset, after having passed the first reading earlier this year. The current version of the legislations appears to have removed some requirements, such as the need for representatives of qualifying NGOs to wear a special identification tag in the Knesset and in every other government building.“By differentiating between donations from foreign political bodies and donations from other sources, the proposed legislation will likely lead some NGOs to be perceived as agents of foreign entities, regardless of how autonomously they operate,” warned Maina Kiai, Special Rapporteur on the freedom of association and peaceful assembly.“The discriminatory impact of new requirements on NGOs would result in public shaming of certain organizations, eroding the democratic character of Israeli civil society,” added Michel Forst, Special Rapporteur on the promotion of human rights defenders.The experts urged members of the Knesset to withdraw the proposed legislation and uphold its international obligation to safeguard the broad and expansive right to freedom of expression guaranteed to everyone under Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

Hogan on Dublin mayor plan I might be 6 5 but Im

first_imgENVIRONMENT MINISTER PHIL Hogan insisted yesterday that he is not leaning either way on whether or not Dublin should have a directly-elected mayor with the capital’s residents likely to be asked that question in a referendum next year.Speaking at the publication of the Local Government Bill yesterday, Hogan confirmed plans for a referendum to ask the people of Dublin if they want a directly-elected mayor next year but would not be drawn on whether or not he is in favour of the proposition.The capital’s four local authorities – Dublin City, Fingal, South Dublin, and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown – have opened a public consultation to gauge opinion on the kind of mayor Dubliners want and what powers they should have before it makes a recommendation to government.Speaking yesterday, Hogan said: “I might be 6′ 5” but I am not going to lean in any direction. It’s a matter for the Dublin people when we will be putting the case for and against, like any referendum commission.“We look forward to the proposals from the four local authorities about what type of question they would seek to put to the electorate, in an informed way, in Dublin to decide whether they wish to have a directly-elected mayor or not.” The bill published yesterday provides for the holding of a referendum if the four local authorities agree to such proposals. It also proposes that the authorities, and not central government, foot the bill for a referendum if and when it is held at the same time as the local elections next year.Hogan would not be drawn on how much having an elected mayor would cost or what savings could be made.He confirmed that Dublin City Council will have a chief executive under the local government reforms like every other local authority in the country and said any changes to that structure would be dependent on what the people of Dublin decide.The Minister has previously said that it would be pointless having a directly-elected mayor who did not have “meaningful and sufficient power”.Asked if similar proposals could be rolled out in the country’s other cities such as Galway, Cork, Limerick and Waterford, Hogan added: “We’ll try out the process of Dublin in this plebiscite and we’ll see how it goes from there.”Like politics? Then why not ‘Like’’s Politics page?Hogan: No point having elected mayor for Dublin unless position is meaningfullast_img read more

Meet the 14yearold boy trying to build a nuclear reactor in his

first_imgI had to tell them that I wasn’t going to blow up the town.After that, he got help from his uncle, who is a professor of biochemistry in UCC, who helped him put together a proposal and put him in touch with other people who could help him out.The next thing was the money. “I thought maybe I’d be able to do it for about €3,000 and I could possibly ask my parents to help and fundraise the rest myself, but then I realised the less money I have, the longer it’s going to take,” he explains.Instead, he has turned to crowdfunding, asking people to donate to his research. “If I can raise €10,000, I can just go to companies and on eBay and get the pieces that I need and not scrounge around for pieces to do it”.That’s the how – now the whyIf you’re imaging a mini nuclear plant running in a Mayo shed, think slightly smaller.Tom’s plan is two-fold. Firstly he wants to do research into a topic called bremsstrahlung, which hasn’t been the subject of much study yet. This, he thinks, could end up as an entry in the BT Young Scientist Competition next year.The other idea is bigger though: while the fusor shows nuclear fusion taking place, he wants to look at whether it could eventually be used to generate power. In other words, it would be nuclear power but without all the current risks.“People aren’t too crazy about nuclear power currently, especially after events like Fukushima and Chernobyl,” he explains.But the method that I want to develop would mean nuclear power with no waste and no risk of explosion or radiation fall-out.Tom wants to see if the fusor can be expanded into a power generating system called a sub-critical generator. He stresses that this isn’t some kind of hypothetical scenario – it hasn’t been constructed before, but the designs are considered safer than current fission designs.What next? Tom has already raised €2,500 in his own money, and has more than €1,000 pledged in donations on his crowdfunding page.  He plans to work on the fusor over the summer – he has just finished 2nd year in St Gerald’s in Castlebar – but it depends on how much money he raises.“I can do it for less than €10,000, it’ll just take a long time. If I get to €6,000, I’ll just drive ahead and do as much as possible”.So where do you go after building your own nuclear reactor? Tom hopes to study pure maths at third-level when he finishes school, or possibly theoretical physics.If he makes the fusor, he will put it up on his website and he hopes to get some colleges allow him to come in for presentations about his work.“I’d say they could be interested,” he says. “You don’t get many people building nuclear fusion reactors in their shed”.If you want to help Tom out, you can donate on his crowdfunding page. Opinion: Nuclear energy is the cleanest, safest and cheapest – why do we continue to reject it? > Read: These shots reveal just how desolate Fukushima is now > TOM MCCARTHY, A 14-year-old from Mayo, is describing the reaction he typically gets when he tells people how he’s trying to build a nuclear fusion reactor in his parents’ shed.“People kind of look at me for a few seconds,” he says.  ”Some people will just say ‘ah yeah’ and will take it seriously. Actually, most people do, they just sometimes need a bit of convincing”.“But then some people just look at me and think they should be ringing the local psychiatrist or whatever”.Perhaps one of the best things about being a teenager is being able to spend as much as much time as you want doing the things that you love. For Tom, this has been science – and particularly physics – for as long as he can remember.Building the reactor isn’t some kind of far-fetched never-going-to-happen dream, however. The type of reactor Tom wants to build has already been done by other people (although as he notes, “building one on my own is somewhat like someone climbing Mount Everest – it has been done before but not by many people”).For him, the goal is straightforward: he wants to develop a new way of generating power without all the risks associated with nuclear. Source: Tom McCarthy/VimeoHe first had the idea to build the mini reactor just over one year ago when he came across a video of a US teenager called Taylor Wilson who built what’s known as a fusor – a kind of small nuclear reactor which shows that fusion is happening and which would fit comfortably inside a room.“Seeing this other 14-year-old who was able to build it, I thought ‘why can’t I do this?’,” Tom tells He started kicking around idea on how he was going to get started with the fusor, spending hours researching the equipment, the mechanics and the key concepts. With several months of free time looming, he figured he was ready to start actually constructing it.The most important things? Money – and getting his parents on board.“Getting my mam and dad involved was the most important thing at the start,” he says.last_img read more

Une technologie du MIT permet de voir autour des obstacles

first_imgUne technologie du MIT permet de voir autour des obstaclesGrâce à l’observation des échos d’un laser, des chercheurs ont pu développer une caméra capable de former une image d’un objet hors de vue !Une caméra classique capte la lumière qui lui arrive en ligne droite de l’objet fixé. Au Massachusetts Institute of Technology, les chercheurs ont expérimenté  une lentille capable de capter également la lumière réfléchie, formant des “échos lumineux”. A la clé, la possibilité de reconstituer une image 3D de ce qui est caché derrière un obstacle. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?La méthode: un laser fixé sur la caméra inonde l’obstacle de courtes impulsions de 50 femtosecondes, qui vont s’écraser sur le décor et s’éparpiller dans toutes les directions. Les impulsions qui touchent des objets situés plus loin que l’obstacle vont finir par revenir vers la caméra.Mais cette caméra est particulière. Tout d’abord elle est très sensible au moindre grain de lumière. Sa finesse est aussi temporelle: elle est capable de dire à quel moment chaque écho de lumière lui est parvenu. Cela permet aux algorithmes de l’équipe d’Andreas Velten d’en déduire la longueur du trajet de la lumière. Patiemment, en multipliant les tirs de laser, ils peuvent alors reconstruire la forme de la scène. Cela prend pour l’instant plusieurs minutes de calculs, mais les chercheurs espèrent pouvoir réduire ce temps à moins de 10 secondes.”Nous avons tous l’habitude des échos sonores, mais les échos lumineux peuvent également être exploités”, explique Ramesh Raskar, chef du Camera Culture Research Group du MIT Media Lab.Le 26 mars 2012 à 09:06 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Vancouver Public Schools announces personnel changes

first_imgVancouver Public Schools on Monday announced personnel changes for the 2019-2020 school year, including the restoration of dozens of staff who had received preliminary layoff notices due to since scaled-back budget cuts.The west Clark County school district faces an $8 million deficit, the result of declining enrollment, increased labor costs and changes to the state’s funding formula. But that’s less than half of the $16.8 million deficit the district announced earlier this year, which would have left teachers, counselors, clerks and other school staff out of work. The district received $6.5 million in one-time state money and will use $3.8 million out of its district reserves to alleviate the deficit.On Monday, the district announced it was restoring the following positions:• 21 teachers.• 11.8 full-time counseling positions.• 19 media clerks.• Seven counseling clerks.• Four wing clerks at Skyview High School.• Two deans of students.• Four teachers on special assignment who work with instructional technology and one teacher on special assignment who works in curriculum and instruction.• Three maintenance grounds crew.• 15 custodial positions.The district also announced several associate principal moves. All changes must be approved by the school board before they are final. They are:• Tony Liberatore, associate principal at Columbia River High School, will move to Fort Vancouver High School. Liberatore will replace Associate Principal John Schultz, who is leaving the district.• Nick Davies, a teacher at Jesuit High School in Portland, will fill the associate principal position at Columbia River left by Liberatore.• Luis Castro, currently associate principal at Gaiser Middle School, will move to Fort Vancouver High School as an associate principal.• Alison Watson, associate principal at Fort Vancouver High School, will fill an associate principal role at Thomas Jefferson Middle School. Watson will replace Andrea Sperry, who is leaving the district.• Mandie Arai-Green, currently a teacher and administrative intern at Ogden Elementary School, will become an associate principal at Gaiser.• Scott Sartorius, current associate principal at Discovery Middle School, will be associate principal at Eisenhower and Lincoln elementary schools.• Katie Ronning, current associate principal at Felida Elementary School, will be associate principal at Discovery Middle School.• Mike Meskel, associate principal at Hudson’s Bay High School, will fill the associate position at Felida Elementary School.• Greg Roberts, currently associate principal at Eisenhower and Lincoln elementary schools, will be associate principal at Hudson’s Bay High School. Roberts will replace Patrice Woods, who is leaving the district.• Amber Beardmore, a teacher and administrative intern at Liberty Middle School in the Camas School District, will be associate principal at Hudson’s Bay High School.last_img read more

ThreePeat Kassiks Takes Home Third Consecutive Win At Beer And Barley Wine

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Kassik’s Brewery once again took home first place at the 2018 Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival with their Buffalo head Barley Wine. Debara and Frank Kassik opened the brewery in North Kenai in 2006, and this year they defended their 2016 and 2017 title with their Buffalo Head Barley Wine win. Kassik’s Brewery is the result of Debara purchasing a home brew kit for her husband Frank for Christmas a few years back. Frank’s passion for brewing began and soon he became a proficient home brewer. In 2004 Frank and Debara spent the summer building a 36×50 shop while working their regular jobs with the hope of building a brewery. The Great Alaska Beer & Barley Wine Festival was held on January 19 & 20, in Anchorage. According to their website, the brewery opened its doors on memorial weekend 2006 with the Beaver Tail Blonde and Moose Point Porter. The Moose Point Porter was one of Frank’s home brew recipes scaled up for the brewery. Never in the twenty-four year history of the festival has a three-peat been accomplished. The festival featured over 300 beers, meads, and ciders from 70 brewing establishments located her, nationally, and globally. Frank Kassik, the head brewer for Kassik’s: “The winner for this years was a very small amount, only about 106 gallons and that was it. We actually did brew a second barley wine, which we have on sale that is very close to the winner, but what we do have available is a very small amount. You’re just going to have to come see us.” This is the third year in a row that Kassik’s has taken home first place, and makes Kassik’s the first brewery ever to win back to back first place medals three times in a row.

Beth Kerttula returns to Juneau with message Time to plan for oceans

first_imgFormer state Rep. Beth Kerttula served as the National Ocean Council director for two years. She said marine planning is important. (Photo by Andrew Kitchenman, KTOO – Juneau)Former Juneau state Rep. Beth Kerttula returned to Alaska this summer after two years serving the White House as director of the National Ocean Council.Listen NowIn this position, she helped two regions write the country’s first marine plans and worked on some issues particularly important to Alaskans.Kerttula said it’s important to plan for the future of the oceans that surround Alaska and the rest of the United States. She said just as people can have personal trauma when they don’t plan for their future, the U.S. oceans could face disaster.“If you aren’t planning where your ship lanes are, if you’re not planning around the sea mammals, if you’re not planning so that you can have development, then you’re going to have a mess at some point,” Kerttula said. “And you’re going to have conflict between subsistence users, between the developers.”The attraction of making a difference for the future of the oceans is why Kerttula left the Alaska House of Representatives in 2014, after 15 years.The Juneau Democrat served as the minority leader for her last seven years in the House.She spent six months at Stanford University’s Center for Ocean Solutions before she joined the National Ocean Council. President Barack Obama formed the council under an executive order in 2010. Kerttula explained why he did it.“It’s a huge challenge right now with the ocean,” Kerttula said. “We’re facing some very severe problems: ocean acidification, erosion, sea-level rise, the lack of coordination among users, the lack of coordination among the federal agencies. And all of those things are really coming to a head.”The National Ocean Council includes 27 federal agencies.Kerttula worked with officials in all of the agencies to plan with state and tribal governments. The council adopted the first two marine plans on Dec. 2, covering the waters off of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.She said planning is especially important for Alaska.“We have so many conflicts,” she said. “And we have worse problems on the horizon, particularly in our ocean space. And this is just a really wonderful method to put all of the users, the stakeholders, the federal agencies, the tribes, at the table.”Along with resolving conflicts, Kerttula said, the focus on planning can provide more information about coastal waters, such as mapping the seabed.“We know so little about the ocean floor. We don’t even have charts,” Kerttula said. “I mean, in many parts of Alaska, we don’t have accurate charting. So it comes down also to health and safety.”Kerttula was also engaged in efforts to stop illegally caught fish from being brought into the country.“One of the things that was very shocking to me when I went Outside, spent so much time Outside these last two years, was the problem with illegal fish, I mean, not knowing what fish you were even getting many times in restaurants,” Kerttula said.Kerttula ended her work at the end of June. Since Obama launched the National Ocean Council with an executive order, President-Elect Donald Trump will be able to end it with a stroke of a pen.That has Kerttula worried.“My hope is that there won’t be knee-jerk reactions about overturning the executive order,” Kerttula said. “But there’s a lot of concern about it, and about what that would mean. If that happens, the effort’s not going to stop, because you need something like this.”She’s taking some time off now that she’s returned to Juneau, helping her husband, University of Alaska Southeast Professor Jim Powell, and her elderly father, former state Sen. Jay Kerttula.last_img read more

British PM vows to fight terror

first_imgBritish prime minister Theresa May arrives at Finsbury Park Mosque in the Finsbury Park area of north London, on 19 June, 2017, after a vehicle was driven into pedestrians nearby. Photo: AFPBritish prime minister Theresa May vowed to fight terrorism and extremism “whoever is responsible”, after a white van driver ploughed through a crowd of Muslim worshippers near a London mosque on Monday.Speaking outside her Downing Street residence, May said the attack was “a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms and our determination to tackle them must be the same, whoever is responsible”.May said the attack was “every bit as sickening as those that have come before”, referring to three Islamist-inspired attacks in London and Manchester this year that have killed 35 people and injured around 200.The attack “targeted the ordinary and the innocent… this time British Muslims as they left the mosque,” she said, adding that police would provide any additional protection needed for mosques.“This was an attack on Muslims near their place of worship and like all terrorism, in whatever form, it shares the same fundamental goal: it seeks to drive us apart,” she said.“There has been far too much tolerance of extremism… including Islamophobia,” she said, announcing the creation of a new commission to fight extremism in the same way as racism.last_img read more

Lego Unveils Friends 25th Anniversary Central Perk Set

first_imgStay on target It’s a little hard to believe, but it’s been 25 years since Friends made its debut. The show’s final episode was watched by 52.5 million Americans, which, at the time, made it the fourth-biggest finale in TV history.A run of 10 seasons and 236 episodes earns a show a place in television history. It also earns that show a sweet commemorative Lego set.Could we BE any more excited to build Central Perk?! #Friends25— LEGO (@LEGO_Group) August 8, 2019Just in time for the 25th anniversary this September, Lego has unveiled Central Perk. It’s the latest Ideas pitch to get packaged up for sale.The set was selected by Lego’s panel back in February. They’ve tweaked the design to make more retail-friendly, reducing the overall size and cutting the piece count down from just over 1700 to 1070 (15 of which are coffee cups). That helps simplify the build a bit and it also keeps the price down.Central Perk is a fantastic brick-built take on one of the show’s most iconic sets. It starts outside with the red and white striped awning and the big Central Perk logo on the window. Open up the double doors and there’s the stage where Phoebe belted out memorable tunes like Smelly Cat.The big, comfy, orange couch and coffee table the gang gathered around pops off easily for play or posing. Click it back on to its spot near the counter, where you’ll find Gunther waiting serve customers because neither Rachel or Joey was ever particularly good at it.Lego did a great job on the minifigs — just check out Joey’s how you doin’? face, Ross’ perfectly messed-up hair, Monica’s super-cool suspenders.Chandler’s got his sweet laptop with 12MB of RAM, 500MB hard drive, and a modem that transmits at over 28000bps. Rachel, naturally, is carrying a tray and mug like she did for three seasons, and Phoebe is ready to strum her very detailed acoustic guitar.There’s also a pizza box and a nice big slice, because pizza appeared at some point in pretty much every episode.Central Perk goes on sale September 1st, and Lego has priced it at a very reasonable $59.99. Most importantly, you don’t have to go to Yemen to get your hands on it.See Central Perk  on Lego.comMore on Treehouse Is Lego’s Most Sustainable Set YetLego Built a Life-Sized Astronaut to Celebrate Apollo 11 50th AnniversaryLego Adds Two More ‘Overwatch’ Sets: Wrecking Ball and Junkertown This Tree House Is Lego’s Most Sustainable Set EverLego Built a Life-Sized Astronaut to Celebrate Apollo 11 50th Anniversary last_img read more

VisvaBharati setting up Yoga Gram with central grant

The Dinbandhu Andrews Hospital set up by Tagore to provide non-allopaethic medicine to the poor at low cost, will be renovated in the second phase of the ‘Yoga Gram’ project, Mondal said. An ayurvedic garden with medicinal plants would also be coming up in the vicinity of the hospital, he said adding that the AYUSH ministry has been approached for funding the second half of the project.last_img read more

6 Tips to Reduce Employee Theft

first_img Storeowners don’t want to think their employees will steal from their store. But every day merchants discover that their trusted staff members have done exactly that. According to a retail theft survey conducted by Jack L. Hayes International, a loss prevention consulting firm, one out of every 40 employees was apprehended for theft by their employer in 2012. The survey also found that on average, employees steal 5.5 times more than shoplifters on a per-case average ($715.24 vs $129.12).Thankfully, there are ways to surround yourself with staff you can trust. Here are six tips from our experts:1. Weed out bad apples. Run a background screening and a drug test on all potential hires. Employees with drug addictions are at higher risk for stealing to support their habit. “I believe that past behavior is a good predictor of future behavior,” says King Rogers, chief executive officer of the King Rogers Group, a loss prevention and security management consulting company. “If someone has been convicted of theft in the past, then you don’t want them handling your money.”2. Use the buddy system. Often theft happens when one employee is alone in the store or at the register. Doyle recommends having two employees work for both opening and closing to limit opportunity. Always have refunds and voids witnessed by a second employee or a manager as well, says Mark Doyle, president of Jack L. Hayes International. Rotate the employees paired together and avoid having close friends witness transactions for each other.3. Keep a virtual eye on employees. People will be less likely to steal if they know that you are always watching. A video surveillance system helps deter employees as well as catch theft after it happens. Be sure to include cameras in storage rooms and loading areas as well as in the store. Use high-definition video so you can clearly identify employees and transactions along with allowing integration with facial recognition software.Another way to keep an eye on your employees is to use an exception-based reporting system at your point of sale, says Doyle. He says that the systems will flag possible fraudulent transactions, such as excessive refunds or voids, and excessive refunds or voids outside of store hours. Review video daily and POS several times a week to determine if there are any issues that you need to look into further. Limit the access to your surveillance systems to as few people as possible to avoid tampering. 4. Monitor trash removal. Employees often steal merchandise by concealing it in the outgoing trash and then retrieving it later from the outside trashcan or dumpster. “It’s trash. No one wants to deal with trash, so dishonest employees will often take advantage of this opportunity,” says Doyle. He recommends putting controls in place to reduce the opportunities, such as using clear garbage bags, requiring all boxes to be flattened and locking all dumpsters.5. Have an employee tip line. Set up a confidential way for employees to communicate their co-workers’ suspicious behavior and offer a reward for staff members who provide information to prevent thefts. You could set up an email address for tips as well as a locked-box for tips in the break room. “If people know that their fellow co-workers are watching out for theft, they will think twice before stealing because there are higher odds they will be caught,” says Terrence Shulman, founder of the The Shulman Center for Compulsive Theft, Spending & Hoarding and author of Biting the Hand that Feeds: The Employee Theft Epidemic (Infinity Publishing, 2005).6. Get to know your employees. It’s much easier to steal from someone you don’t know very well, but it is much harder to steal from someone with whom you have a relationship. Shulman recommends connecting with your employees and being aware if they are going through financial difficulties or experiencing high levels of stress, which can increase the impulse to steal. “You might be able to give them extra work, point them in the direction of a local food bank or help them connect with charitable services in the community,” says Shulman. “A happy employee is a more honest employee. It really does help reduce employee theft when your staff feels that you care.” 4 min read Register Now » November 21, 2013 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Donovan” will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.The movie is the Quebec phenom’s English-language directorial debut starring Kit Harington, Natalie Portman, Thandie Newton, as well as Canadians Jacob Tremblay and Sarah Gadon.“Xavier has had a long-standing relationship with TIFF and we’re absolutely thrilled to bring his latest masterpiece to Toronto audiences,” senior programmer Steve Gravestock said Wednesday onstage as he announced the lineup at a press conference.“I think it’s safe to say that this is one of the most widely anticipated films of the festival and we’re ecstatic to show it.”Contemporary anxieties and Indigenous issues are among the themes in the rest of the Canadian lineup for this year’s movie marathon, which also includes works by directors Denys Arcand and Jennifer Baichwal.A total of 20 Canadian features were announced on Wednesday, including Arcand’s “The Fall of the American Empire,” which has already screened in French in the Oscar winner’s home province of Quebec.Alexandre Landry stars as a lonely man who finds two bags filled with money after witnessing a deadly armed robbery.“I think it’s one of his more pointed political films in quite some time,” Gravestock said in an interview.“In a weird way, even though it looks at all sorts of corruption, it’s also quite hopeful.”Baichwal explores environmental issues with “Anthropocene,” the final title in a trilogy with producer Nicholas de Pencier and photographer Edward Burtynsky after “Manufactured Landscapes” and “Watermark.”“It’s quite stunning to look at but also I think, in some ways, this is quite painful to watch because it is very much about extinction, what we’re doing to animals,” said Gravestock, who worked on the lineup with Danis Goulet, the TIFF Canadian features programmer.Other docs exploring a feeling of unease include Astra Taylor’s “What is Democracy?” Starting in Greece, it looks at the history of democracy and the dangers facing it.“Sharkwater Extinction” is the final work by the late filmmaker and conservationist Rob Stewart, and Barry Avrich’s “Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz” is about the United States’ chief prosecutor during the Nuremberg trials.Meanwhile, Ron Mann looks at gentrification in the documentary “Carmine Street Guitars,” about a Greenwich Village shop that makes custom guitars out of material from historic sites and torn-down buildings.The lineup also has world premieres of three films that showcase Indigenous talent, including Gwaai Edenshaw and Helen Haig-Brown’s “Edge of the Knife.” It’s billed as the first feature-length film made in Haida, which is classified by UNESCO as an endangered language.Meanwhile, renowned Metis actor Tantoo Cardinal stars in Darlene Naponse’s “Falls Around Her.”And “Anne with an E” executive producer Miranda de Pencier makes her feature directorial debut with “The Grizzlies,” a creative collaboration between herself and Inuit producers Alethea Arnaquq-Baril and Stacey Aglok MacDonald.The lineup also has the sci-fi drama “Clara” by Akash Sherman, starring Patrick J. Adams of “Suits” fame as a depressed astronomer who gets a new outlook on life after meeting a woman.Emile Hirsch stars in the sci-fi thriller “Freaks” by Zach Lipovsky and Adam Stein, playing a father who locks his daughter in a dilapidated house, warning of her of dangers outside.Supernatural tales are found in “The Great Darkened Days” by Maxime Giroux, “Fausto” by Andrea Bussmann, and “The Stone Speakers” by Igor Drljaca.Stories featuring teens and young adults include Keith Behrman’s “Giant Little Ones,” Thom Fitzgerald’s “Splinters,” “Firecrackers” by Jasmin Mozaffari, and Sebastien Pilote’s “The Fireflies Are Gone.”TIFF says 40 per cent of the Canadian film slate this year is directed by women.Previously announced Canadian features include “Giant Little Ones” as well as Kim Nguyen’s “The Hummingbird Project,” Patricia Rozema’s “Mouthpiece,” and Don McKellar’s “Through Black Spruce.”“There are a lot of films that we have this year that don’t shy away from difficulties that people are facing — and even in some cases, some tragic circumstances — but really look at people’s resiliency,” Gravestock said.last_img read more
